WE GET CHASTISED FOR CITING Nick "The Erroneous One" Athan
Posted by Mike Florio on February 4, 2009, 2:07 p.m.

I’ve known Nick "The Erroneous One" Athan of Warpaint Illustrated for several years, and I’ve never regarded him as a questionable source of Chiefs news.

But that might be a result of the fact that I don’t pay much attention to the Chiefs.

With Athan’s report that Chiefs owner Clark Hunt recently said that the team has complied with the Rooney Rule when in fact Hunt never has said any such thing, we’ve now got serious concerns.

Our concerns became even more pointed upon receiving moments ago the following IM from Jason Whitlock: “LEAVE Nick "The Erroneous One" Athan ALONE. . . total assclown. ASSCLOWN.”

(You know, Whitlock’s career would really take off if he’d quit being so damned wishy-washy about his opinions.)

“[F]eel free to quote me by name,” Whitlock said, “belittling you for even responding to that assclown’s e-mail. [H]e’s the guy who sent NFL [N]etwork an e-mail saying the [C]hiefs’ deal for [S]hanahan was DONE and that [S]chefter was wrong. [A]than is an assclown.”

Whitlock’s opinions regarding Athan’s are Whitlock’s alone, primarily since I’ve never been able to identify a consensus definition of the term “assclown.”

That said, Whitlock has never steered me wrong in the past, so I probably will be heeding his advice.

CHIEFS HAVE COMPLIED WITH ROONEY RULE?
Posted by Mike Florio on February 4, 2009, 12:01 p.m. EST

As the Kansas City Chiefs continue to engage in one of the most secretive job searches in NFL history, some basic information has emerged regarding the process.

According to Nick Athan of Warpaint Illustrated, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt recently told a Kansas City radio station that the team has complied with the Rooney Rule, and that Hunt is “pleased” with the candidates who have been interviewed to date.

If, then, the Rooney Rule has been satisfied, the Chiefs are free to interview and hire Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley without interviewing now or in the future any futher minority candidates.

But it’s impossible to know whether Haley is the leading candidate without knowing who the other candidates might be.

And, apparently, we won’t know any of their names, since the Chiefs presumably told them that, if any of their names emerge during the process, the team will assume that the candidate whose name emerges is responsible for the leak — and that the candidate will be disqualified from consideration.

Of course the KC Star looks just as horrible throughout this process of hiring Pioli and the head coaching search. They have been behind on all the news and have essentially given up trying to penetrate Pioli's Iron Curtain at One Arrowhead Drive.

This past month has been perhaps the most newsworthy month in recent Chiefs history and the likes of Wargarbage Illustrated AND the KC Star have been exposed as FRAUDS... STIFFS... GUTLESS PIECES OF GARBAGE WHO ARE COMPLETE NON-FACTORS.

UPDATE: Athan has advised us that Hunt didn’t actually say that the team has complied with the Rooney Rule, and that the comments came not during a radio segment but in connection with remarks Hunt made on Saturday, after former Chiefs linebacker Derrick Thomas qualified for the Hall of Fame. So if the team already has complied with the Rooney Rule, Hunt didn’t recently say so.

Would Wargarbage Illustrated even exist if they didn't have Fox Sports propping them up like a dead ROTTING corpse?I don't think that's it at all.

I posted right after pioli was hired that we were really, really, really spoiled by the way Carl Peterson gave a free hand to the PR department (for as much bitching and moaning as jack harry and some of the guys at 810 dished out year after year - but don't take this as an "i like carl" comment...), and we were about to discover just how tight-lipped the rest of the NFL operates.

The Chiefs have been the aberration the last decade, letting so much news leak out. We're not seeing the star or wpi or anybody else getting 'exposed', we're seeing the chiefs go from a leaky raft to a tight-lipped ship. And it's going to take some time to get used to, for the press and for fans alike (as demonstrated by the level of sheer panic on this very board over the lack of news about the GM search and now the coaching search).

Welcome to the 21st century, folks.

There is a part of me that respects Nick Athan. I don't know his story, but I don't think he has any formal journalism training. He decided to do something he loved to do and try to make a living at it.

Being a small business owner, I greatly respect him for pursuing the dream.

But, if you are going to email Shefter and taunt him and tell him how wrong he is.... you'd better be right. You'd better be absolutely, 100%, without question right.

It is one thing to put out opinions and analysis based on what you have been told. It is another to try to take down one of the premier names in the industry.

Now, for the record, I don't really like Shefter. He has been wrong on his fair share as well. But, if ANYONE would know what Shannahan is doing, it is PROBABLY the guy who WROTE his book.

I googled him and was surprised to see what he looked like. I would have thought he would look more 'put together'.

Anyways, for all the crap he gets, I am sure, he is still cashing the checks he gets every month.

That is complete BS and a gutless excuse for lazy journalism on the part of the KC Star. With the Internet it is even MORE difficult to be secretive about personnel moves.

Also funny how the Boston media (who essentially completely humiliated the KC Star in covering the Pioli to KC move) had no problem getting information.

The KC Star is used to being spoonfed propaganda/information by Dictator Carl, I agree with that... but just because Pioli/Clark have put the clamps down on the flow of information, doesn't mean the KC Star shouldn't try harder to get sources of information.

I was wondering when this was going to happen. You know that, if anything, Pioli while at New England, picked up on Belicheks penchant for dealing with the media in a mute truculence, which was 180 degrees from what the KC media was used to with the King. You just knew that these guys were going to go bat shit crazy - the Shanahan thing was just a classic in terms of reporters grasping at straws, trying to get anything of a reaction from Pioli and the new Chiefs. Poor, stupid bastards have been completely cut off and they are starting to go into withdrawls. Someone break out the straight jackets and methadone.

At least I never saw any stories or reports from up there. They 'thought' there might be something to it just like we all did here, but they didn't 'know' anything', and they didn't have any kind of 'information'.

There's no more leaks at arrowhead. That's the change. It's not a matter of anybody being lazy. The Chiefs let the news they want out out when they want, and they pick exactly who it goes to.

That might change over time, but I'm not sure if it will. Most of the league is tight-lipped these days (although KC's a little excessive right now, I think). I'd say the days of stories breaking locally are pretty much done, as I'm expecting everything to come out through national media or the Chiefs themselves, and then the local media will 'break' off of that.

Lol, the one Rustshack put up was just taken down on WPI, then someone else started another one, it is down now too.

There's been three threads deleted on the subject. Rust put up a call to Admins asking why, shouldn't people there know what Nick's credibility is worth. I put up one asking about the censorship, shouldn't Nick come defend himself.

Looks to me like Whitlock and Nick "The Erroneous One" Athan are the same kind of "assclown" depending on what "assclown" means. At least everyone knows Whitlock's job is to be an "assclown" while Nick "The Erroneous One" Athan pretends to be a reliable inside news source he just comes off as another "assclown".

I know everyone loves it because he's bashing Nick but TBH he's no more credible or any less of an annoying douchebag than anyone else in the media.

Just my two cents.

Your two cents are quite valid.

Here you go

The exact quote from Clark Hunt that was replayed from Saturday's press conference on Derrick Thomas where he said he was comfortable with the search to date. Now we can assume that KC has complied with the Rooney rule if they've talked with Haley and others.

We hear Leslie Frazier is that guy.


The problems with Nick's apology are numerous.

First, Clark didn't say a single thing about the head coaching search during his HOF press conference. He was talking about Derrick Thomas, not current Chiefs business.

He DID say he was comfortable with the search, or words to that effect, during his interview with Jack Harry. How anyone could confuse that with Clark's HOF speech is a topic for another time.

BUT to hear Clark's comments and then read "we've already conducted our Rooney Rule interview" into anything he said is putting words in his mouth. He didn't say that and it shouldn't be assumed.

The kicker, as I mentioned before, is that Nick identifies Leslie Frazier as the Rooney Rule candidate. This despite the fact that an article in MN came out yesterday which said 1) the Chiefs hadn't asked Frazier to interview, and 2) if they did ask, he'd probably decline because he doesn't want to be a Rooney Rule guy. (He's probably been one 3-4 times already this offseason.)

Someone must have explained some or all of these points to Nick, because now he has a new "apology" of sorts simply stating that a source told him the Chiefs will have satisifed the Rooney Rule once the coach is hired. SO THERE.

As if we couldn't have assumed that for ourselves.

What a ****ing poorly constructed first sentence. It's not even a ****ing sentence. Are you ****ing fist ****ing me? The "publisher" of a ****ing "magazine" constructs this "sentence" and sends it out to the masses?

Atahan is a moron but in fairness so are the majority of members on this board who think Croyle was a legit NFL QB & those who think KU football will make the NC within 7 years.

And how many of the those members:

1. Charge people $109 a year to read their opinions?
2. Act as if opinions = facts?
3. Are wrong with their "scoops" and "exclusives" time and again?
4. Think they are the next John Clayton?
5. Believe they are real "journalists"?
6. Are unwilling to defend themselves when called out?
7. Delete any and all posts critical of the site's owner/admin?

Other than #2, you can't really accuse anyone here of the above. And those are primarily why Athan gets so much crap on here.

I do, however, agree that Claythan has wisely kept himself out of this mess and doesn't deserve to be blasted for this incident.

Plenty of other things, yes. But not this.
