Showed up at black-tie event in tuxedo T-shirt and jeans. Not the best way to demonstrate to management that you're mature enough for the level of financial committment you're looking for. It probably won't affect anything one way or another, but if I was his agent I'd be pissed.

Jared Allen showed up to receive the Derrick Thomas MVP award as the Chiefs top player in the 2007 season. And he did it in typical Jared Allen fashion. While the evening is a black-tie affair, Allen showed up in blue jeans with a tuxedo t-shirt. The only thing missing was a baseball cap.

That's his personality. I could care less what he wears as long as he is putting opposing QB's in the ground.

At least he showed up:

"although this year half of the award winners did not bother to show up to receive their honor."

QFT. I think it's a bit disrespectful to DT, to recieve his award in casual clothes like it doesn't mean enough for you to dress nice. You can say what you want about him being him, it's a matter of class (once again my opinion).

Force a deal or trade.

In my opinion not showing up is definitely the wrong way to go about getting a deal from the Chiefs. It might be the right way to work towards getting a trade, but based on the fact that the Chiefs currently have only 1 other defensive end on the roster, that ain't happening this season. If I'm his agent I'm focused on getting a long-term deal from the Chiefs before Jared gets hurt or makes a bad decision. I would not want to have Jared in the same position next offseason.

I don't think they are making a big deal out of it. Gretz writes 3 columns a week. It's perfectly normal for him to write about the 101 awards. If you're writing about it, it would be weird not to point out that although the hosts requested black tie, one notable person decided to show up in jeans.

First of all, let me say I couldn't care less what Jared Allen wears and I think his outfit is funny.

But trying to "discredit him"? They stated a fact: Allen showed up to the awards show in a silly outfit. You think if the KC Star, or ESPN, or SI had done a story on this that they wouldn't have mentioned how Allen was dressed?

If you see something about his behavior that's "discrediting", then that's on Jared Allen for doing it. It isn't on the website that happened to point it out to you.

Typical Chiefsplanet hypocrisy in play.

If it had been Larry Johnson that had shown up in Sean Jean and jeans (along with gold bracelets and necklaces), there would be 30 pages proclaiming him to be a punk-ass thug. But Good Ol' Boy Jared Allen gets a pass for poor behavior. What a shock. :rolleyes:

Additionally, the 101 Banquet honors all NFL players and coaches - not just those from Kansas City. It's been around for over 38 years; it's not just some flash in the pan awards dinner.

A very close friend of mine went to the 101 Banquet as a guest of Mike McCarty. HE had to rent and get fitted for a tux (and his wife had to buy a dress for the evening). That mere fact that Jared Allen (or any NFL player) would show up in jeans and a t-shirt is completely disrespectful, to say the least and most certainly displays his lack of maturity.

And considering Jared Allen is one bad off-field decision away from a 1 year suspension, I think it's certainly something to take note of while determining if you want to hand him a $35 million signing bonus.

I didn't really touch much on your comment about JA here. Yeah, he is a risk. He did do a good job of showing maturity last year in staying clean and getting in better shape. I think that says much more about him than showing up in "unapproved" attire. I think you all are blowing things way out of proportion. Loosen up.

And FTR, I would never have done something like that. I am a jeans and tshirt kind of guy. But I like to look good and would have on an occasion like this. I just don't get overly worked up over JA's one trivial little event like this.

Regardless of whether you guys care about what he wore or not, this was meant as a big "f*** you" to King Carl, and they both know it.

To show such blatant disrespect while receiving the team MVP, named after one of the most beloved players in Chiefs history, is a message to Carl and the fans that he hasn't grown up, and that he doesn't want to be a part of Chiefs organization.

Conspiracy theory: Maybe he's more shrewd than we give him credit for ... a few more stunts like this to alienate the fan base will make it easier for King Carl to let him go.

See the article is already working. It's getting some fans upset with Jared Allen and that is the entire purpose to point out JA maturity level. Carl has some of you all by the balls. Can JA play? Yes he can-well enough to be paid big bucks, but it's becoming increasingly obvious Carl isn't going to sign him long-term, hence pointing anything and everything that Jared Allen is doing wrong. A team that wants his services should be "courting him" so-to-speak. They are doing the opposite and scrutinizing the shit out of him. I'm sure somewhere Gretz is doing lab work on Jared's stool sample.

Look like I said earlier, it's not very bright of him to do this and I NEVER thought tuxedo shirts were/are funny in the first place, but I do love a good up yours to Carl and his posse, so yes, I find a great deal of humor in him wearing a stupid ass shirt to black-tie affair. BFD.

Yay! Jared Allen told Carl Peterson FU! :shake:

The last time I checked, Jared Allen is an employee of the Kansas City Chiefs organization. And while Carl Peterson may be the current president, Clark Hunt and family (along with his late father, Lamar) don't deserve to be treated with such irreverent disrespect.

Count me in with the "I turned on Allen" crowd. An adult does not disrepect his employer in this manor. If any of us did that kind of thing there is a good chance there would be some serious fallout. Likewise if we were bucking for raise there is no way anyone would show up like this to an event sponsored by our employers.

Let's be honest. What the guy was doing was trying to force Carl's hand by trying to clown him and the Chiefs at this event. A total lack of respect by a guy that wants to be the matyr.

Personally I was tired with his act before last season with his DUI crap and am still tired of his worn out prima donna act. Can he play ball on Sundays's sure but there comes a point where the team does not need the distraction.

And leave it to the team to help point it all out for you. Carl is very shrewd. He's laying the groundwork for a trade and Jared seems to be saying, please do, you can't trade me soon enough. If I worked for Carl, I'd want out, too.

That's bullshit, because most all think Larry is a douche all on his own-it doesn't have a damn thing to do with how he dresses-it's how he ACTS.


Again, I called Jared out for his behavior, I just didn't freak out over what he did or didn't wear like some are. What is this, Chiefsplanet or the E channel? And now back to Joan on the red carpet...

If Allen didn't give them the ammunition, they wouldn't have anything to work with. Regardless of what the FO's intentions are, Jared Allen is the one that showed up dressed for a WWE event.

As for Allen wanting to go somewhere else, every other team in the league is going to have the same concerns about his off-field decision making that the Chiefs do. Showing up at a formal NFL function in a t-shirt isn't exactly building a resume, regardless of what team he ends up with.

Some how I don't really think Andy Reid gives a shit about how JA dresses at an awards banquet-I think he's more concerned with how he plays on Sundays.


Again it is disrspectful, but let's not make a mountain out of a mole hill.

Will some admit that the propoganda machine is working and laying the groundwork for JA's trade? I think it's inevitiable at this point.

See the article is already working. It's getting some fans upset with Jared Allen
JARED ALLEN'S BEHAVIOR is getting some fans upset with Jared Allen. This attempt to turn the whole thing into some kind of Carl conspiracy is hilarious.

Hey, maybe Allen didn't even plan to dress that way. Maybe Carl's thugs knocked him out before the banquet, tore off his tux, and dressed him funny so Carl could use the world wide web to disseminate his anti-Allen propaganda. ROFL

Did you even read what was written?

Jared Allen showed up to receive the Derrick Thomas MVP award as the Chiefs top player in the 2007 season. And he did it in typical Jared Allen fashion. While the evening is a black-tie affair, Allen showed up in blue jeans with a tuxedo t-shirt. The only thing missing was a baseball cap.

That Allen showed up at all was a good sign. He continues to spend his off-season in Arizona while his agent works on a new contract with the Chiefs. While Allen tends to take these things personally, it was good to see him appear and accept the honor that came from his teammates.

Gretz wasn't even negative about how Allen was dressed. He was just stating it as a matter of fact. And then he complimented Allen for showing up and referred to it as a "good sign".

Oh man, they're just trashing him left and right over there. Carl's clearly trying to run him right out of town!

Jesus Christ, now I need to give credentials on knowing what the definition of the word shrewd is. There's twenty ****ing years of proof of his shrewdness, Tait, Neil Smith, Schottenheimer, Grbac, Vermeil, the fans, etc... and how he handled those situations. Carl Peterson is a very shrewd businessman. Nothing gets in his way. He throws them all under the bus.

Typical Chiefsplanet hypocrisy in play.

If it had been Larry Johnson that had shown up in Sean Jean and jeans (along with gold bracelets and necklaces), there would be 30 pages proclaiming him to be a punk-ass thug. But Good Ol' Boy Jared Allen gets a pass for poor behavior. What a shock. :rolleyes:

Additionally, the 101 Banquet honors all NFL players and coaches - not just those from Kansas City. It's been around for over 38 years; it's not just some flash in the pan awards dinner.

A very close friend of mine went to the 101 Banquet as a guest of Mike McCarty. HE had to rent and get fitted for a tux (and his wife had to buy a dress for the evening). That mere fact that Jared Allen (or any NFL player) would show up in jeans and a t-shirt is completely disrespectful, to say the least and most certainly displays his lack of maturity.

Wrong LJ is a thug regardless of what he wears. Dressing like LJ is disrespectful if you are going to a grocery store.

No, it's propoganda that is working, obviously. Carl is a shrewd prima-donna douche who hasn't exactly been endorsing Jared these days-great employer. Sorry, but this is such a stupid ass story line to get worked up over-it's hilarious. Again, BFD.

Really? I guess you didn't read my entire post.

First off, I had already heard that this jackass showed up in a T-Shirt because if you'd read my post, basically my oldest living friend from childhood attended as a guest of Mike McCarthy.

Now if HE had to go out and rent a tux (and his wife purchase a gown), why should Jared Allen get a pass for showing up in a freakin' T-shirt? I certainly know that I would be pissed if I spent several hundred dollars for clothes to a black-tie affair (not to mention the entry fee for the event), only to have MY hometown player show up in a freakin' T-shirt.

It shows poor judgment, poor decision making skills and irreverence to anyone associated with the Chiefs, the Hunt family and the people who've put on the 101 Banquet for the past 38 years.

If YOU choose to dismiss this behavior, good for you. But in my opinion, it just shows that he hasn't matured and that this jackass doesn't deserve a huge guaranteed contract.

I'd say there's some truth to that...I would have traded him last year if it was at all possible, so nothing he does or they write now has any real impact on my opinion.

He's an overrated player who's popular primarily because the fanbase can associate with him. Hey, I get it, he'd be great to have a beer with. That doesn't change the fact that he's a disaster waiting to happen if he gets a long term deal. And I say let him be some other team's disaster.

Jared Allen wouldn't wear a tux to his own wedding. He is just being himself, he is not the type of person to wear a tux it's against his rednick persona.
I don't think JA intentionally tried to disrespect the event, in his own mind he is just being who he is.

I have no problem with them pointing it out. I love the guy when he is playing but all the extra crap is getting to be a bit much. One DE does not make or brake this team as it is. We need so much help if he is gone and we get something in return it might be OK

Didn't LJ pistol whip some chick or something, like his first season here?

...and No, I'm not giving Jared a pass. Like I said, he's a fuggin' idiot, but he sho' can play DE...I think him wearing this to a nice event just shows his redneck-ness, which some people like about him. I just like watching him play some football...

None of those things mean he's "shrewd". In fact, many of them prove quite the opposite. Your hatred of Peterson is affecting your thinking.

Jared behaved like a high school kid who shows up to prom in a baby blue leisure suit and sneakers. Was it unproffesional? Yeah. Immature? Yeah.

But, you know... he's a football player, not a stock broker. I don't really care.

Another DUI... a bar fight... would be an issue. This, not so much.

Count me in with the "I turned on Allen" crowd. An adult does not disrepect his employer in this manor. If any of us did that kind of thing there is a good chance there would be some serious fallout. Likewise if we were bucking for raise there is no way anyone would show up like this to an event sponsored by our employers.

Let's be honest. What the guy was doing was trying to force Carl's hand by trying to clown him and the Chiefs at this event. A total lack of respect by a guy that wants to be the matyr.

where can we get a few more distractions like jared allen?

seriously, we could use them...

Of course the bad boy Rocafella image is what Larry wants people to think about him, so I guess it is ok. LJ throws up the diamond and hangs out with Jay-Z in New York to try to portray himself as a thug and make people forget that he never sold crack, had a father that supported, that he is a college graduate and multi-millionare.

JA should take some fashion lessons from Victor Riley. I saw him a couple of years back in the best looking suit I have ever seen. His shoes alone cost more than my car, and he looked very mature and professional.

Of course he was on his way into the courthouse on charges for ramming his car into his pregnant wife, but he looked GREAT!
