I hope he got enough signing bonus from the Faidahs to cover the return check charges!!!!

Does anyone besides me believe that these problems had more to do with Rison being cut than the "youth movement.?"

Just curious as what y'all think.

08-24-2000, 03:51 PM
Yeah, he's a moron. When he stated, "I am the best receiver in the NFL", he meant receiver of stolen goods. Except, he didn't know about TamVan at the time....

08-24-2000, 03:52 PM
I'm sure it didn't help Risons case much. Especially when compounded with the lying to the cops incident while at training camp. The faidahs deserve him. Good ridince once and for all.

This guy has to be the most financially irresponsible idiot I've ever read about in my life! Don't most pro players have accountants to help them budget their cash? Rison's been in the league for 12 years and should be set for life. I'd bet he has no savings and will file bankruptcy sticking his creditors with his debt. I have a feeling we'll be hearing about how he's destitute in a few years...

Don't most people grow up around 25? What's his deal?

I think Risons "move" to the Raiders had as much (or more) to do with his off field actions as it did with him growing slow and tired on the field the last two seasons.

Hunt and Peterson had to be tired of all the negative PR and said "it's time to get this guy the hell out of Dodge".......or KC in this case. <P>

08-24-2000, 03:59 PM
You have to wonder just what in the hell he did with all his money. What a moron.

It couldn't have landed in a more appropriate place than the Raiders.

I'm with ya. I always thought his release had to do with his off field problems, or rather that the Chiefs knew more would be on the way.

This guy is the epitomy of a MOE. Good riddance to bad cancer. How in the world can you bounce checks making the kind of money HE makes????? http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/confused.gif
(Fingerand thumb in L shape on forehead) what a LOOOOOOO-SER!

Maybe Rison had to fire his accountant so he had to balance his checkbook himself.

08-24-2000, 04:44 PM
Timing for this is perfect: AFTER the Raiduhs signed him!

08-24-2000, 04:54 PM
We will welcome him back to town with open cuffs!

J Smitty is happy C. Okoye will be in the Chiefs Ring of fame!!

Hey b-squared......this could be trouble for Rison. I heard that he signed for 500K but zero signing bonus, so he'll be broke for a while.

Lick Bush in 2000 !!!

08-24-2000, 06:00 PM
I guess this is what he meant by "I think it was time for me to get out of KC"...

"Thanks for being a part of my life!!! I never knew what evil was before this!"

08-24-2000, 06:05 PM
I can't wait to read the signs and hear the abuse that Rison/Middlebrook (or whatever alias he will be using at the time)takes when Oakland comes to Arrowhead in October.

Even Janikowski must think he is a moron.

08-24-2000, 07:05 PM
Didn't the Raiders sign someone a while back, and then after they learned all the could from him about his former teams offense, they released him (the week before the season started.

Does anyone else remember that?

Wouldn't it be a riot if that happened to Rison?

wouldn't be surprised...

08-24-2000, 07:12 PM
What would be funny is if Jackson and Johnson County merely waited until the night Andre flew in to arrest him. Imagine Al Davis down at the courthouse 2 hours before game time trying to bail him out.

Let the Raiders have him and his troubles.

Rison is an idiot. I can't imagine what he must have spent all his money on. Smoke detectors and fire sprinklers, maybe.

08-24-2000, 10:00 PM
Did anyone notice that those checks were written in 1998? And now he leaves, talks smack, and BAM! charges are pressed! thats just too bad!

Yeah I thought the timing of it was kinda odd. What's up with that?

Andre's new nick name and slogan:

"Bad Check Writing Rison"

"The checks in the mail"

"But I didn't know the account was closed..."

And who is the idiot lady who loaned him $200,000?...where is she? I could use a small loan myself...I promise I'll pay it back or I can write her a check... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

How irresponsible can a guy be?

I think he probably makes more per game than i do a year, not counting the lean years at college...and I have NEVER written a bad check...

I just hope he ends up in the Jackson county jail....maybe some of his "homees" can ask him about his KC bashing....

what a prick
