Now that I had a chance to sleep on it, you're right.

 

I need to not only apologize to Kareem Hunt for my blind judgment ... I need to THANK HIM for showing restraint and not taking the "ample opportunity to seriously harm her."

 

He's a true humanitarian.  

What you really need to do is remove your head from your rectum and allow your small mindedness to expand.  I have far more confidence Kareem will achieve that over you.

What you really need to do is to stop making excuses for a woman beater and know a bad apple when you see one.

I wasn’t equating their backgrounds or personalities. I was comparing them as two examples of how I don’t think it’s the best idea to be playing in their hometowns - for various reasons. 

Ok,I get that, but one of his fights was in KC, also Hunt is genuinely grateful for his experiences in Willoughby and how they put him on a much better life path.  So it's harder for me to agree with your comparison.  Chad Kelly goes home to a HS game and gets in an altercation, Hunt happily goes back to show his appreciation to fans and everyone he knows.

The penalty currently is 6 games for DV.

 

Rice was not "banished for life". 

6 games seems fair. I will say that what Rice did is not the equivalent of what Hunt did. We have trouble as a society distinguishing degree of offense. Rice wasn't banished, but at his age, he wasn't worth the PR hit. And his actions were far, far worse.

It's pretty ridiculous that IK Enemkpali got only a 4 game suspension for breaking Geno Smith's jaw.

 

Meanwhile everyone wants Hunt's career ended for a love tap in comparison simply because this one involved a woman (not to mention that woman was attacking Hunt too unlike Geno).

 

This is another case of complete gender discrimination against men.

Oh wow--no broken bones? So glad he can absolutely be trusted to show appropriate restraint in a domestic situation like that! Look, let's just accept that what he did is rightfully reprehensible, and that he now has an existing track record, pattern of violent altercations (3), so he's lost any benefit of the doubt. Would you be cool with him dating a close female relative of yours? Just hope it's a definite "no." 

Of course what he did is reprehensible, but at this point he definitely deserves the chance to change himself. 

WRT your other point, years ago a friend of my wife started dating a US Marshal who had moved to CLE to get away from his ex wife and essentially abandoned his kids.  To boot, the friend still hadn't finished her divorce.  I was totally not cool with the situation and he agreed to meet me at a bar and talk about it.  At the end of that I was cool, he was in a terrible situation and did what he felt was best.

The funny thing was he specializes in interrogation and was stressed out and sweating bullets ahead of our meeting.  They're still married over 10 years now.

 

So if a female relative wanted to date Kareem, I first would be respectful of her though very concerned but could be ok with it if Kareem was willing to go one on one, look me in the eye and address all my concerns.

I do know a bad apple when I see one and Kareem is not a bad apple.  He's demonstrated kindness, respect, self deprecating humor, appreciation, giving and humility.  And he's a very hard worker.

He definitely has got serious issues and I believe he'll get them fixed because he is a caring person.  And I'm definitely rooting for him.

She was laying on the ground, had fallen over, not a threat, it was done ...and he decided to go back for more and kick her.

And Geno Smith got a broken freaking jaw. Much worse.

 

This lady was fine. She was also very aggressive and hitting him. Geno didn't touch IK.

 

People were actually laughing and celebrating that Geno got his jaw broken. Violence towards men is apparently funny to everyone. But god forbid a woman gets love tapped in comparison. End that person's life.

Takes a big man to admit he made a mistake. 

 

Of course, it means more if the man admits to it before a video surfaces.  He lied to everyone about what happened and only showed "remorse" after video proof came out.

 

Did he care about the two guys he punched in the face in separate incidents?  (no charges, of course)

 

Did he care about the woman he beat up?

 

Did he care about his teammates when he decided to lie to the organization?

 

All signs point to this dude being nothing but a scumbag thug.  Good luck to the Browns for dealing with that mess.

If you believe that the rate of any crime committed by the National Felon League's players, is not statistically significantly higher than all occupations, please post the link to that research.

 

Interesting, do you have any research that show that the crime rate of NFL players is statistically higher?

Of course not, but why should he not use it if available?   For better or worse the NFL does understand the disadvantaged backgrounds and does try and help guys like him.  Just like Josh Gordon.

Dude, stop. That was a lockerroom fight between football teammates. It's more akin to the Gronk and Tre White incident than Kareem Hunt's. Teammates have gotten in fights thousands of times and will continue to do so. IK just nailed him so bad it leaked. IK was never getting criminal charges, neither will Michael Jordan for punching Steve Kerr, or Gronk for Tre. Teammates will get suspended for a fight gone wrong.. It ain't a good look sure. It's not criminal. Are we seriously going to cry foul on Michael Jordan punching a teammate now?

 

Just use another example lol. If Zay Jones mercilessly beat some random dude - OUTSIDE OF SPORTS - and broke his jaw, yes that's assault and we and the league would have a criminal problem much more similar to Kareem Hunt.. who by the way has assaulted dudes.. than freaking IK Enemkpali vs Geno Smith.

Football has enabled his bad behavior. Football will not rid him of it.

 

This has nothing to do with being "disadvantaged"--what do you mean by that?

He clearly made a mistake, a party went sideways, I'm sure he regretted what he did but it all went away at first and so at 23 he unwisely decided it would all stay away and he lied to KC about it.  It happens to non NFL people too.

Even if he hadn't made those mistakes he was serving alcohol to a minor.

The video surfacing and forcing him to be fully accountable was a blessing in disguise for him.

His future actions will tell.

How has football enabled his behavior?  The behavior would be there with or without football.

 

The Browns and NFL have laid out a detailed plan he needs to execute to be  considered for reinstatement.  It's certainly up to him, but he has a structure to operate within.

 

Hunt had a rough early childhood before moving to Willoughby to finish middle and high school.

Mike Tanier pretty much offers the realpolitik case for why the likes of Hunt will continue to survive in the NFL, regardless of whether or not they 'learn their lesson' or change their future actions:

 

"Claiming that the NFL learned nothing from Ray Rice, Greg Hardy or other controversies that overshadowed the league in recent years would be 100 percent incorrect. The NFL learned exactly what it wanted to learn.

News cycles and angry internet mobs come and go. Fans come back, no matter what, as long as the games are exciting. Survivors' names and stories begin to pale in comparison. And "the shield" endures, no matter what."

So did Benjamin Franklin. At some point your environment at a young age needs to stop being an excuse for poor life choices or inherent character flaws, sorry, just my .02 cents.

So you are saying his "rough early childhood" made him kick that woman? 

 

Anyway, he was accused of kicking a man at a nightclub in January 2018.  He was also accused punching a man in a bar in Ohio that June.  Can you relate any such accusations from when he was growing up in the nice community of Willoughby, Ohio?

Sorry.  That excuse is weak.  Having a rough childhood might justify the actions of the child at the time; not years after his rough childhood.

 

All I hear are excuses and how "great" of a guy he is.  I'm not buying it.  He's nothing but a street thug.

Don’t worry he punched a guy this year too. He doesn’t discriminate. Equal opportunity.
