Is a 4 game suspension too harsh for Eric Warfield's DUI? A better question might be, did he ever play under the influence(PUI) as it sometimes appeared?

Apparently since 1 was a felony DUI 4 games is the deal.

Is that 750,000 that he looses in salary credited back to the Chiefs salary cap? :hmmm:

Do you think that there's a clause in his contract that says that the contract is voidable upon conviction of a felony?
If so, does a voided contract still count towards the cap?

Or what if Ben Maller just says that it doesn't count towards the cap, does that make it so?

If Men Baller says it, it must be true.

Outstanding.

I think he said I was cool one time.

I could be wrong, but I believe this number only counts against our cap IF he is on our roster when the cut is down to 53 players. If we cut him, only his signing bonus will count against us this year.

I said this a long time ago...if Warfield is suspended 4 games, cut(fire) him and use the $ to sign Law.

Why should he be fired for something that happened outside the workplace?

Which brings me to ask the salary cap geekologists this question. What is the cap hit if we cut him?

Ummm, he committed a felony. That's generally a fireable offense for most employers.

Is it really? Do most people get fired for a DUI?

I'm not being sarcastic, i really don't know.

Well, I think that's BS.

If we're not paying the monay, then why does it count against the cap?

(Clarifying, I don't think your post is BS, I think the rule is BS) :)

I'm aware of that. The first two were misdemeanors, correct?

Which is my point. This was a felony. Most employers don't like to have convicted felons under their hire.

True, but I guess my thinking is that a felony for a DUI is a little different then a felony for dealing drugs or robbing a bank. Would a normal employee get fired for a felony DUI? Would the employer even find out about it?

Because he is on OUR roster I believe if that makes sense. If he's not on the roster, his salary this year should not count against our cap.

Would you still have a job if you had to miss work for 10 days (because you were in jail), miss work for court appearances and then have to be home by 2:00 p.m. everyday because your ankle bracelet will start going off so you can complete your three month house arrest?

All right then, cut him and sign Law. :harumph:

Good point, I guess not. Unless I could come up with a REALLY good story.
