Just a head's up, but Jared Allen will be on the 38 the the spot at 7:00 with Jack Harry. Jared Allen explains how Carl bullshitted everybody-it should be a fun watch.

Are they going to pleasure each other while throwing darts at Carl's picture?

It's sh!t like this that makes me want to send Jack Harry about 6 cases of Marlboro's and let nature take it's course.

I'm not trying to defend Carl - I just think everyone needs to move on.

What's to come of this? People are going suddenly realize Carl's an ass?

Everyone knows that Peterson's an infantile dirt bag.

This is going is going to do nothing but give a crazy old man (who I hate almost as much as Carl) a platform to grandstand his equally worthless BS.

Yes, because we can honestly expect to get nothing but the truth from these two very unbiased sources. Its over, what exactly is there to gain from rehashing why Carl didn't give him the third highest paying contract ever? I mean considering thats what he wanted and Minny was willing to give up to give it to him I think we got the best possible outcome of the situation.

Wow, if he goes out of his way to trash Peterson and the Chiefs... he is truly classless. Thank god he is gone. What an immature move...

the Talking Can
05-05-2008, 06:00 PM
Carl got the best years of his career, dangled a contract, humiliated him in public by labeling him a risk, traded his ass for a ransom to franchise with delusions of winning a superbowl, and then used the picks to have what may turn out to be the best draft in franchise history causing people to forget about Allen almost immediately...

yeah, he's probably gonna cry like a soft bitch about it....which would be what you expect of an alcoholic in denial....the same crying you'll hear when the Vikings fans start asking the question, "Why did we pay the highest salary to a defensive player ever for 11 sacks and a first round playoff loss?"...

The Bad Guy
05-05-2008, 06:04 PM
I'm glad we have Glenn Dorsey.

I really hope Allen falls flat on his face. When he wasn't playing for his meal money, he was a top 10 defensive end. Now he's paid like he's the best defensive player in the league.

Let him be Minnesota's problem.

Mecca
05-05-2008, 06:07 PM
He'll probably play well since he's not to the best DT tandem in the league...I'm just curious how long it will take before he's suspended.

To play Devil's advocate. We would've drafted Dorsey whether we traded Jared or not. How would you like to have them both for the next decade?

The real question is, would you have traded Jared Allen for Brandon Albert/Jamaal Charles/Dejuan Morgan, because that's what we got for him. I'm pretty happy. Possibly the best lineman in the last few years, and the best safety in this draft, on top of a phenominal value in Charles. I think we did purdy good.

I think it would've been great had Jared wanted to stay here and not gotten 2 DUI's...he isn't to be trusted. Now he is the highest paid DL in the game, he should succeed with that sick line in Minn, even if he isnt playing full speed with that huge wallet

I believe without the pick at 17 that they trade out of 5, even with Dorsey there, or we draft Albert at 5 if we aren't able to find a partner. And I think the entire draft board looks drastically different when it's all over, as a cascade from the change at the top.

The extra picks gave them the freedom to draft the way they did. In my opinion. Without 17 and the 3rd, I believe they may have changed their entire approach.

I don't think there's anyway they pass on Dorsey unless something ridiculous posed itself. We'll never know, but I think Dorsey was ours once he slid under just about all circumstances. I still think we got the better end of the deal, but I guess only time will tell.

The thing is Allen just isnt a pass rusher. He plays the run very well, he makes alot of tackles. He creates alot of turnovers. He never gives up on plays. I am not saying Dorsey isnt the same, we will find out soon enough. I am just saying. I would have rather got rid of LJ and Tony G then Allen.

No knock on the athelete, he never gave up etc, but he still didn't do shit in the 4th qtr when it really mattered...

Most his sacks were in the 1st half...

Allen put himself in the position he was in by being a drunk-ass all the way back to his college days. He was the one who got offended because the Chiefs wouldn't break the bank for such a risky player. <i>He</i> was the one that wanted out.

LJ and TG wanted to stay. See the difference?

Wrong. Jared did nothing wrong here but tell the truth. We all know we can't believe half of the shit that comes out of Carls mouth. I have no doubt in my mind that Carl had absolutely NO intentions on signing Allen long term. After a while if became known to Allen that Carl just isn't gonna resign him, so then Allen stated then that he probably won't ever play for KC again. What's wrong with what Allen said?

It's just we've all known for years and heard all the stories of what makes Carl the biggest asshole in the NFL.

There have been multiple occasions where people don't wanna come here or stay here for that matter, because of Peterson being the GM. This is nothing new. He's a cheap son of a bitch egotistical asshole. Once again this is nothing new.


All of a sudden this becomes a classless move once a player says this while we have been bitching about it for 20 ****ing years? Come on people.


And btw I don't know why people are talking about Dorsey, because he has nothing to do with the Allen trade. Whether we trade Allen or not we are still sitting a 5 spot and we still take Dorsey. I don't think we would have traded down.

Allen is pissed because Carl told Allen to sign the papers that Carl later used against him in negotiations.

Allen did, and after he did Carl said "Well, you admit to it! Ah-HA! You're a risk and not worth the payday."

Now JA is shocked because GM's were trying to **** him.

I was in the trade LJ to vikings boat last year for their 7th pick overall, in which they got Peterson. I would have liked their 1st and 2nd last year, for LJ while having Adrian Peterson... and keeping Jared Allen... then drafting Dorsey.

That would be very nice.

Say the Chiefs cut LJ after this year and draft James Davis in the 3rd round.

The Chiefs would have 3 RBs 2 in the 3rd round 1 in the 5th, they would each bring something and combined especially Davis/Charles would be very productive and all 3 of them together would make less than LJ.

Jared cleaned up his act. But the bottom line is that Jared did everything the Chiefs wanted him to do as far as cleaning himself up and he did, and Carl didn't follow his word which is really not surprising to me or anyone on this board.

I don't think Carl thought Jared would have the kind of season he did. And when he did Carl thought "well **** all we can do now is trade him". Since Carl is such a cheap ass.

On the other hand, Allen was rewarded the biggest contract ever to a defensive player. NO WAY was Carl ever gonna pay that. But you have to ask yourself, as long as Carl is around are we ever gonna pony up money for young player that produces at a probowl level when his contract expires????

What happens if DJ has a superb year and his contract expires??? Are we gonna looke to trade him away too?

The bottem line is that Carl told Allen to clean up and he did, followed that by a probowl season and Carl didn't fall on his word like he should have

CP had NO intentions of resigning JA. Thats a fact.

Allen would have signed here for a cheaper amount had this gotten done last season. This wouldnt have even been an issue.

and he's an asshole for crying at the mere suggestion that maybe getting 4 DUIs is a reason to be concerned about making him the highest paid defensive player in the history of the NFL...

Gonzo
Shields
Holmes

The Chiefs have generally kept their good players, even in some cases when they shouldn't have.....Allen was an exception not the rule to what they usually do.Yep.

People banging on Carl for this whole deal are missing the fact this is not the way that he's ever done business. He never lets his 'hit' draft picks go. This whole offseason is basically the polar opposite of how he normally does business. The normal Peterson move would have been to rework Allen's contract, at any cost, sign as many free agents as possible to plug holes and do whatever it takes to insure a 'winning' season ('winning' meaning 'not losing'; 8-8). He has never shown any desire to accumulate draft picks or to attempt to rebuild through the draft.

But, hey, maybe it's Tait all over. If it is, then that means Allen wanted out, and he's feeding everybody a load of BS so he doesn't come off as the "bad guy".

Carl is an easy scapegoat. People hate him, so if you want to come out smelling like roses, what do you do...blame it on Carl. Because, again, everybody hates him (including me, I should add), and apparently they have a short memory, too, since Allen was slamming KC and talking about leaving a year ago. Flash forward 12 months, and it's funny how the story changes. "I want to stay, I love it here, it's just that danged evil Carl Peterson."

Uh huh. Right.

and he's an asshole for crying at the mere suggestion that maybe getting 4 DUIs is a reason to be concerned about making him the highest paid defensive player in the history of the NFL...


and this claim that Carl never pays anyone is stupid beyond belief:

DT
Gonzo
Shields
Holmes
Green
LJ
Warfield
Waters
Williams
McGlockton
Surtain
and on and on....

Carl will pay anyone, injured or not, young or not...that's been part of his problem - not knowing when NOT to pay....Excellent point. The problem with Carl has never been that he's a tight ass... it's been about poor judgement.

The bottem line is that Carl told Allen to clean up and he did, followed that by a probowl season and Carl didn't fall on his word like he should have

Are you this dumb? Seriously?

Allen had NO CHOICE. If he receives ONE MORE DUI, he's suspended for ONE YEAR!

Got it?

Additionally, Allen finally decided to clean up (in a CONTRACT year, no less) and received a huge payday for his effort.

Do you really think that Allen could be trusted in a non-contract year? If so, why? He was arrested for a DUI in high school, once in college and twice in the NFL.

The ONLY thing that made this past offseason ANY different was that there was a HUGE payday if he could keep his shit together for 12 months.

Get it?

Carl has ALWAYS deferred to his HC.

The only exception to the rule has been LJ.

And I honestly believe that the only reason he pulled rank there was because (first time thought here) they would get over it and he realized DV wasn't the talent evaluator he thought DV was...

No. I dont think anyone is worth that kinda money IMO.

But I also think Allen would have signed for much less had the Chiefs and Allen gotten things done sooner.

The bottem line is that Carl told Allen to clean up and he did, followed that by a probowl season and Carl didn't fall on his word like he should have

CP had NO intentions of resigning JA. Thats a fact.

Allen would have signed here for a cheaper amount had this gotten done last season. This wouldnt have even been an issue.



Could you imagine a Dline with Dorsey and Allen? OMG.

Say they do sign him last year. Then he has not learned a lesson what so ever. Does he still clean his act up, I doubt it, IMO. Doing this in a contract year was smart....no not even just smart, he would be a f'ing moron not too.

So he is signed goes out and gets in trouble again. Then all of his supporters today would be on here bitching about how stupid Carl was to sign a guy with these problems.

I hate Carl as much as you Eric, but I don't fault him to much for anything that happened here. JA is a big boy, he should take just as much (if not more) for the shit that has happened. I mean really 4 DWI's........find a friend for Christ sakes. :)

I'm glad we have Glenn Dorsey.

I really hope Allen falls flat on his face. When he wasn't playing for his meal money, he was a top 10 defensive end. Now he's paid like he's the best defensive player in the league.

Let him be Minnesota's problem.
I don't have anything against Allen. I hope he continues to do well.
Course now that the incentive to be paid is gone it may be a little tougher to keep it up.

Carl doesn't need an excuse. I don't think Allen had any intention of ever staying in KC. And it's hard to blame him for that when the team's gone 7-9, 10-6, 9-7 and 4-12 since he was drafted. He wanted out, he got out, and the convenient scapegoat's taking all the heat for him. So, well played, Jared. Or Jared's agent.

Yep.

People banging on Carl for this whole deal are missing the fact this is not the way that he's ever done business. He never lets his 'hit' draft picks go. This whole offseason is basically the polar opposite of how he normally does business. The normal Peterson move would have been to rework Allen's contract, at any cost, sign as many free agents as possible to plug holes and do whatever it takes to insure a 'winning' season ('winning' meaning 'not losing'; 8-8). He has never shown any desire to accumulate draft picks or to attempt to rebuild through the draft.

But, hey, maybe it's Tait all over. If it is, then that means Allen wanted out, and he's feeding everybody a load of BS so he doesn't come off as the "bad guy".

Carl is an easy scapegoat. People hate him, so if you want to come out smelling like roses, what do you do...blame it on Carl. Because, again, everybody hates him (including me, I should add), and apparently they have a short memory, too, since Allen was slamming KC and talking about leaving a year ago. Flash forward 12 months, and it's funny how the story changes. "I want to stay, I love it here, it's just that danged evil Carl Peterson."

Uh huh. Right.People are bagging on Carl because he's a ****ing liar, no more, nothing less. Sorry, but no way I can defend that ****ing fraud, who hasn't done anything of signifigance in twenty years. Sorry, but he had no intention of re-signing, Jared, even though he told JA he did-that's horseshit and I'll call it as such. The man has zero principles and his business ethics are shady at best.

Some are missing the point, this has nothing to do with the contract and everything to do with Carl's nature-he's a fraud.

However, defending Allen's juvenile, self-serving, and mostly irrelevant rant against Carl is silly and sophmoric on your part. If it was a damn internet discussion board, that would be one thing....but this is Jared in "real life." He needs to grow up. And so does anyone who genuinely "defends" this kind of crap.

I agree, he needs to grow up-there's no disputing that, but I truly believe he was lied to and manipulated as he's stated, that's why I'm rather vocal about this, because Carl lied and played this in a shady manner-anybody in JA's position would feel the same way. When your employer lies to you, you tend to lose faith in the company you work for, that's human nature and has nothing to do with someone's maturity level.

Did JA drink alot and get into trouble multiple times behind the wheel?
Yes

Did Carl Peterson and the Chiefs FO agree to extend Allen's deal if he cleaned up and got his act back together and stay out of trouble?
Yes

Did Jared Allen stop drinking and worked his ass off getting back into incredible shape, getting the sack title in the NFL?
Yes

Did Carl have any intentions at all in retaining Allen once he saw he was playing at the higest level possible knowing JA would want a big contract?
No

Overall did Jared Allen do what the Chiefs told him to do and then the Chiefs didn't keep their word once Allen succeeded and did everything they asked of him?
Yes.

JA knows what it takes to be the best at his position in the NFL. Thats not by drinking and getting shit bombed all the time. You don't think JA wants to be the best? Do you really think he wants to risk getting behind the wheel drunk again knowing he won't be able to play for a full season should he get caught? Players want to play. They don't want to sit home and watch.

This is all on Peterson if you ask me.

Shady? If he was truly lied to....yeah, that sucks. It doesn't reflect well on Peterson or the Chiefs. However, it would hardly be the first time it's happened in football--by both sides. Players and agents have also been known to lie their asses off when a contract is involved. I'm not saying it's right, it's not. But it's not unusual, at all....from anyone involved. If Carl really did bold-face lie to Jared, I suspect Clark Hunt has taken that up with him....and may be one of the many reasons Carl's power has been diminished.

It will be interesting to see how that all plays out if JA pickes up another DUI. If JA's slate is indeed wiped clean... I can see Goodell haveing all sorts of problems when handling other players issues.

You guys are too hung up on Jared Allen being a risk. Sure, he is a risk, but is his legal risk significant compared to his performance/motivation/injury risk, plus the risk that we will really suck for the duration of his contract, and all the money would have been wasted?

Jared Allen, all and all, is far less of a risk than signing Larry Johnson was last year. (Johnson should have been traded, too.)

I was in favor of trading Jared Allen, but his past DUIs had little to do with it. It seems many on here want to demonize Allen because he isn't a Chief anymore.

Doesn't have anything to do with risk. It has to do with is he worth that much at this time of our rebuilding process. From a business and value perspective the Chiefs said no. If he wanted to play here he could have signed for less. That doesn't mean the Chiefs owe him anymore than they are willing to pay.

Well, JMHO I think Allen's market value and team needs played more into CP's and Clark's opinions than his risk. I think they were just too far apart to intersect.

My eariler point I think is still true. Allen benefited from how the Chief's handled his situation.

If I were betting that he was going to have another incident down the road it doesn't really matter what kind of deal he signed. I still wouldn't do it. I admit my past experiences with drunks colors my thinking, but the fact is I've never failed to be eventually disappointed by a drunk in business relationships. Nobody has lambasted Peterson more than I have, or longer than I have, but the Chiefs made the right call, IMO. If Jared can't look at his situation and publically admit that he is exactly what Peterson said he is, then he isn't over his problem.

See Goodell, please. JA is completely free and clear of any type of suspension. Goodell gave JA a brand new slate, something Carl and the boys don't want you to know or speak of.
This is completely and utterly incorrect.

At the moment, Allen is not free and clear of anything. If he makes it to the two-year date of his last alcohol related incident, he will get a clean slate UNDER THE SUBSTANCE ABUSE POLICY. Which means he will not get an automatic suspension for abusing alcohol.

But if Allen gets another DUI, he still has THE PLAYER CONDUCT POLICY to answer for. That's the little thing Goodell has used to suspend Travis Henry and keep Pacman out of the league and all that stuff, 'cause they can't stop getting arrested. Another arrest for Allen would be his 3rd while in the league. And that would be after Goodell supported him last year by reducing his suspension on the basis that Allen was working to correct his past mistakes.

Allen will be gone for at least a year if he gets popped again. Actually, now that Allen's with the Vikes, I bet he'd get suspended even longer than if he'd remained a Chief because Goodell will try to send a message about teams rewarding risky players with huge contracts.

And if you don't believe me, Peter King pointed out this exact same thing, that Allen being clear under the substance abuse policy doesn't mean jack as far as what would happen with the league.

So please stop using this completely fictional "Allen wouldn't get in trouble for another DUI, Carl doesn't want you to know about that" conspiracy theory that you've developed. There is not an ounce of truth to it.

Oh, also, Goodell is going to start punishing the teams themselves for having players who get arrested. It will start with the league taking some of the player's salary that would have reverted back to the team, thus taking money out of the team's pocket. And it may go as far as taking away draft picks.

So yay for re-signing Allen!!!

It's all those years of experience they have. Any subject you care to discuss, they've been there done that. Interviewing these little shitheads is fun, I've actually had a few of them cry when it was made clear how unimpressive they were in the corporate world.

I made my friend do this alcohol test thing to tell him how much he drinks....it told him he drinks more than 97.5% of the general population and 96% of people his age and told him he drinks enough to harm his physical health...

You aren't getting my point...

I drink a lot, too...several days per week...

But if anyone wants to give me a reason to stop drinking for an extended period of time (monetary)...I can do it, no problem...EASILY. I could stop drinking right now and never have the desire for another drink...

But at this point in my life...I have fun with my friends...I like getting drunk...I like going out...I like meeting people...like I said...most people use it for a social lubricant...Jared Allen probably included.

And then he found out "hey, I'm famous...I don't need alcohol to still meet people, score pussy, and have a great time!"

So anyone that likes to go out and have drinks after a long work week is an alcoholic?

That isn't how you described the person in question, is it?

There is a difference in having a couple drinks and drinking to get smashed every weekend.

I always thought that was the point to drinking to get drunk. I dont drink, and i havent in about 10 years. I used to drink pretty much every single day when i was a teenager, one day i said i am done and that was that. Didnt bother me 1 bit when i quit, but i always told myself, if i am going to have a drink i am going to get drunk.

I just always thought that was the point.

And I am sure there are plenty of people out there who drink a lot and could do the same thing...

I call it getting drunk. To me drinking a beer or 2 is a ****ing waste. I rather drink a Lemonade or something. Again, i dont drink, so i guess people can call it what they want.

That's another one of the lines I've heard....."I don't drink when I get up I don't have to drink"

Of course this man's wife left him and took their kids and one of their huge issues is her problem with his drinking and his response "I'm not going to stop drinking if we're going to be together she has to deal with it"

So anyone that likes to go out and have drinks after a long work week is an alcoholic?

The modern day definition of an alcoholic has changed. Currently they perceive anyone that has any sort of regularity, to their drinking pattern as an alky. Anyone that gets totally drunk to losing control, or to a blackout stage, more than once, as an alky. If you drink to get drunk you are an alky. If you drink by yourself, you are an alky.

It has come a long way from "anyone that has a drink before noon" definition of years ago.

I know A TON of 23-28 year old people who LOVE to drink and get drunk...and a lot of them drive home...are they all alcoholics? Are you only an alcoholic if you get caught?



Hysterical.

There will be times when I drink 10 days in a row......BECAUSE IT IS FUN...

I drink 3-5 times a week BECAUSE I HAVE FUN...





and like I said...I can sometimes drink 20 friggin' days in a row...and whenever someone wants to offer me a reason to stop...I will do it problem free...





I drink a lot, too...several days per week...

But if anyone wants to give me a reason to stop drinking for an extended period of time (monetary)...I can do it, no problem...EASILY. I could stop drinking right now and never have the desire for another drink...

Dirk, I said "textbook", meaning that's what been taught by alcohol counselors and psychologists. That doesn't mean that everyone who drinks everyday has an alcohol "problem" nor does it cause problems in their life or make them a "drunk".

In Europe, it's custom to drink wine with lunch and dinner. That doesn't make them "Drunks", they just drink wine as we would soda or iced tea. It's part of the culture.
