Just got this email from 610 sports. Don't think it's a repost as far as I know.
Found it interesting anyways. A few things in there I wasn't aware of regarding the Jarrad Page situation. Something here tells me he won't be a Chief much longer.


BREAKING NEWS: Jarrad Page's Agent Slams Chiefs in E-Mail 610 Sports Radio has learned of NEW details on Safety Jarrad Page's holdout with the Chiefs. In an e-mail sent exclusively to 610's Nick Wright, John Page, the agent of Jarrad Page, released this statement: "Jarrad Page requested to be traded away from Kansas City after the third Pre-Season game last year (vs. Seattle Seahawks). We requested a trade again this year on 6/17/2010 for the second time. Beginning in the Pre-Season and continuing all year, Coach Todd Haley mishandled Jarrad last season causing him to end up on IR. (Jarrad never missed a game in his NFL career prior to last season). There has been interest for Jarrad and the Chiefs are blocking legitimate trades. There's been plenty of time to get a trade done and at this point, in our opinion, it's clear that the Chiefs are being Vindictive. Front Page Sports Management called Chiefs Front Office on Monday, 7/26/2010 before Training Camp began, to discuss "trade request". Call was returned by member of Front Office who has been involved in Jarrad's negotiations who claimed, "he didn't know anything about a trade request and had never heard of it". Two subsequent calls made later on the same day to the GM have not been returned to this date. Jarrad no longer has a residence in Missouri or Kansas and has moved to California."

Something like that would be my guess as well. It was the logical choice for him before with Gunther being there an all. Now it's even more the logical choice with this email getting out and their safety Delmas getting injured. It just makes sense at this point.

KC is the only place where he has a chance to start, IMO.

unless another team has an injury etc;

eitherway, it's in the Chiefs interests to keep him until another team is in the market for a safety due to injury; which would inflate the compensation we would receive IMO.

If that were the case, he would have already signed his tender and be starting for this team. If they don't want to be in that position, they shouldn't be shipping out talented players.

He's easily the 2nd best safety on the roster, though people piss and moan about him. 10 INT's and 4 FF's in his first 3 years. Not shabby at all.

Hell, people piss and moan about Carr too.

Flowers/Carr/Berry/Page would be a ridiculously good secondary for a decade or more.

Page is under contract with the Chiefs. He already agreed to the "business". When he agreed to sign that contract, he agreed to play for the Chiefs for the duration of that contract. He and his agent have zero(O) right to contact any other team about potential trades unless the Chiefs management allows it.

I hope the Chiefs demote his ass to YMCA custodial staff, where he'll probably end up in 3 years anyway.

For the record, I'm completely fine with the Chiefs saying "fuck you" to Page.

Provided that "fuck you" mans trading him and getting something for him.

It does the organization no good whatsoever to keep him, not play him, and get no compensation for him when they could have. Draft picks are currency, and this franchise needs all the currency they can get their hands on.

Being spiteful and trying to prove a point only hurts the team. Any draft pick we get in return is a potential contributor in the future. The Chiefs aren't going to play Page, he has no future here.

Ship him, get a pick and end the drama. It's the best for everyone involved.

A trade is best for both parties. I don't see how that statement is even debatable.

Keeping him is not in the best interest of either party, a trade benefits everyone involved.

It would be stupid for the Chiefs to hold a guy hostage that they have no intentions of playing, when they could get compensation for him.

End the drama, deal him, and get back to the business of playing football. It's a distraction this team doesn't need, and Pioli is dragging it out.

You're making assumptions. Just like a lot of people made assumptions about the Brian Waters flap. You're only hearing one side of the story. Seems like Page is the one who is making a stink. Won't sign his tender and publicly demanding a trade. Then because he isn't getting his way his brother bad-mouths the front office and portrays Page as a victim. Sound familiar?

Meanwhile, Pioli and Haley aren't doing anything that every other team hasn't done. they're holding onto their asset until it is beneficial to parlay it into something of equal or greater value. And throughout the entire process they haven't once spoken or behaved unprofessionally.

I think they are doing a hell of a job changing the culture and attitude of this team. And they are doing it without publicly stepping on toes the way others in the business have done. Yet some want to continue painting them as disrespectful assholes. I haven't seen much, if any, evidence that would suggest that is true.

I can understand Page wanting out for whatever reason but he has zero leverage in this situation to demand a trade. Both sides aren't handling this thing very well though because there is no point keeping a guy around that is going to be a distraction like this if he does ever show up.

How can you be a cancer if you are in California instead of with your team.

Had he signed his tender, showed up and worked and been professional about it he would likely have been traded by now.

He is trying to make a point by not showing up and refusing to do anything, why is it wrong for KC to counter that point by not just giving in?

What's the injury that Page is saying he was forced to play through?

He's blaming the team for him going on IR, but he reportedly went on IR for a calf injury that he suffered in practice the week they IR'd him. His brother's talking like he was injured in the preseason, but if Page had an ongoing leg injury, you'd think it would have been noticable for someone at his position.

During the Dallas game, I believe, Page separated his shoulder. He was out for two weeks because of that, then never came back because he went on IR for the calf thing. So he wasn't playing on the bad shoulder after the Dallas game.

If he injured his shoulder in preseason and kept playing on it before injuring it worse against Dallas, a shoulder injury probably wouldn't be noticable from watching him. So that seems more likely. But it's not because of the shoulder that he went on IR, so this doesn't seem to be what they're talking about.

Either way, as far as I can tell he wasn't listed on the injury reports and didn't miss practice until the Dallas injury. So who knows.

I see Just Passin By is making an argument that isn't there,

I could give 2 shits about Jarrad Page, when guys who you've decided aren't part of your future aren't happy about how they're being treated how about you do the logical thing and get rid of them before they become a problem?

I also care how it looks around the league, the last thing you want is the players thinking your team treats its players like shit, good luck signing guys, not that the Chiefs seem interested in spending FA money anyway.

Hell for all we know he could be right in the situation. If he feels he was intimidated into playing with a legit injury which made it worse I could see why he'd be like **** those guys I'm not playing for them again.


And if that were truly the case he's be filing a grievance with the NFLPA. His representation is horrible.

I don't see that, and if he has gotten himself in the doghouse why do you suppose that is? Just for fun? They randomly pick a player to fuck with because they have spare time for that kind of shit?

Also, it may best to hold into him for a few weeks. Teams that lose players at that position in preseason may be willing to part with more/a better pick if they are a little desperate.

Just a thought.

I was being serious. What do you do for a living? I don't know about you being antimanagment but I know you pick apart every fucking thing you can about KC's management and talk about how they should handle this and do that bla,bla,bla.

What is your experience in managing and motivating people?

It's an honest question asking for an honest answer.

For one, I don't pick apart everything. I've praised the hiring of Weis. I've praised the selection of Berry and Asomoah. I've praised Pioli for getting everyone into camp on time.

But all that goes unnoticed.

To answer your question, I led a team of 25 corporate travel agents and 10 rewards package salespeople.

The company I worked for was bought out, I was let go for a cheaper and younger replacement.

Since that happened, I've been working towards my degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Psychology.

Now that's out of the way, I fail to see what it has to do with me thinking that the Chiefs are being petty and vindictive here.

What benefit is there to keeping him, not playing him, and getting nothing for him?

IMO, you are buying into and perpetuating the unsupported narrative that Pioli and Haley are petty and vindictive without any evidence. Only the complaints of those who are unhappy or unable to force the team's hand into giving them what they want.

In this case, Pioli and Haley have done nothing that most other teams wouldn't do. It has been Page who has whined like a bitch and then tried to discredit Pioli and Haley by playing the victim card. Page is the one acting petty and vindictive, IMO. Pioli and Haley have kept their mouths shut and have been focused on taking care of business.

According to him, they forced him to play while injured, and it landed him on IR.

That's fucking with a man's career.

And even if he signed, he's just going to rot in Haley's doghouse. Why stick around and have your career torched by an egomaniac?

A trade is best for both parties. I don't see how that statement is even debatable.

Keeping him is not in the best interest of either party, a trade benefits everyone involved.

It would be stupid for the Chiefs to hold a guy hostage that they have no intentions of playing, when they could get compensation for him.

End the drama, deal him, and get back to the business of playing football. It's a distraction this team doesn't need, and Pioli is dragging it out.

link to where he says haley made him play injured?

assumption again.
why would they also say he had never missed a game before?

that seems to me that maybe he ended up on ir for reasons other than a legit injury.

1.) The argument is there. You, and a select few others, bitch about pretty much every move the team makes.

2.) In case you didn't bother looking this season, teams are taking a lot of hard lines against players.

3.) Helping to make my point is that last sentence of yours. You couldn't even get your whole post out without making a crack about the Chiefs.

I am with this. Let his ass sit out. If he was a man, he would have refused to play when he was supposedly hurt. If you dont think you can play, dont fucking play. I am sure they didnt put a gun to his head and say play bitch.

Imo, this is all his fault. Chiefs imo are doing nothing wrong, they wanted to keep him regardless if people see it or not, they gave him an offer sheet to pay him alot of money, kid is still young, get over it.

My question stemmed from comments in this thread as well as the DJ thread.

You claim DJ wasn't handled correctly, I disagree. You have an under performing employee you don't give them prime opportunities and the best jobs. You make them earn the trust back. It's called accountability.

Speaking from my experience nothing is more frustrating than a guy who has all the skills and knowledge but doesn't focus or work to put them to use. I would rather struggle with a less talented guy who is busting his ass than struggle with a guy giving 60% effort.

With Page as far as vindictive I don't see it, they just expect him to come in and sign his tender then they will talk. It's not a distraction to anyone but the people here. Who is talking about it really? Is this something new in football, no it happens on occasion. All he had to do was show up and make an effort and he would either be competing for a job or working on a trade. It works both ways not just the way the player wants it to go.
He is a disgruntled employee, you wouldn't cave to every disgruntled employee.

In the end he will be gone and as William stated, he will be worth more when someone gets hurt and a team needs a player, say Detroit for example.

It's much to do about nothing as far as KC is concerned and how their season will unfold. It has nothing to do with this year.

Yea you have complimented some of the moves made.

And yet some of you are acting as if he's Larry Johnson.

Yeah, and everyone else is acting as if there are or were trade offers on the table, when nobody really even knows. Also people are acting on the assumption that we didn't or don't want him back.. Wasn't he a starter for us prior to his injury? Does starting qualify as the "doghouse" now? I don't get it.

For the record, I'm completely fine with the Chiefs saying "fuck you" to Page.

Provided that "fuck you" mans trading him and getting something for him.

It does the organization no good whatsoever to keep him, not play him, and get no compensation for him when they could have. Draft picks are currency, and this franchise needs all the currency they can get their hands on.

Being spiteful and trying to prove a point only hurts the team. Any draft pick we get in return is a potential contributor in the future. The Chiefs aren't going to play Page, he has no future here.

Ship him, get a pick and end the drama. It's the best for everyone involved.
first off, if they are gonna trade him they should wait till his value is at its highest point, not just ship him out for a lowball offer because of little interest. Second, there is a long term point to be made to players coming in..."once we sign you, you are ours" this is the way of the NFL. If they just traded every player that requested it, for whatever the reason, it would eliminate the solid foundation they are trying to build. Its VERY telling that Page is the ONLY player not there at camp, and the only player that wasn't there all offseason that wasn't injured.

The players are buying into this deal like NEVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE and Im fine with however they decide to treat a player that "wants out" so that the precedent is set for future negotiations.

Its all about motivating players to be better than they think they can be, mentally, and I think they are doing a damn good job of doing so, but as I always say...

time will tell

If the Chiefs keep him in this situation there isn't another word to use than to say the team is being vindictive to prove some point that isn't there.

You not seeing the point that is trying to be made is telling just a bit, dont ya think?

Wonder what Page and Pollard did to get on Haley's bad side...guess they weren't part of the right 53

If there is anything we k ow about the "Patriot Way" it's that players are commodities.

This isn't about Haley and Pioli being vindictive, and it's not about some dumbass high school-like spat. It's about getting the best value they can for this particular commodity. You'd be a fool to think that you'd get better value for Page in-season or in the offseason than after camp has started and injuries begin to mount around the league.

It is a game of chicken, though. If they wait too long (after cuts) then they played it poorly.

The Chiefs would be fools to outright cut his ass. They tendered him in hope of an offer from another franchise. When the Chiefs weren't offered compensation they felt was fair value, Page-N-Page Inc. got their feelings hurt and took the juvelile road by giving the KC media something to bitch about.

When an offer is thrown on the table they feel is fair compensation, Jarred will get an opportunity to play for a different franchise. If not, he'll be a backup and special teamer one more year before he rides his happy ass off into the sunset.

How exactly did they force him to play?? Especially if he was feeling the way he said before last years preseason games.. The guy is making up total bullshit..

I wanted traded last year preseason, they forced me to play even though I didn't want on the team?? Makes zero sense.. He is making the bs up to get sympathy..

Wait until a team needs him due to injury, crappier play from their players (if possible) and trade him when his value is higher.

How can you be a cancer if you are in California instead of with your team.

Had he signed his tender, showed up and worked and been professional about it he would likely have been traded by now.

He is trying to make a point by not showing up and refusing to do anything, why is it wrong for KC to counter that point by not just giving in?

The guy will never play for the Chiefs so get some trade value for him.
