I might be in the minority but I honestly don't have an issue with it. He committed a crime and will likely have to pay for it when he's sentenced but I just can't get too worked up over a white collar crime. There are plenty of worse people currently playing in the NFL.
My thoughts exactly.
White collar crimes hurt so few compared to some of the cans of human garbage you already have in the league.
Renting a good player while KJ Wright is injured. Feels ethically borderline but I can't fault the FO for finding fixes.
Can't expect the league to blackball Kendrick when Jimmy Haslam still owns the Browns.
White collar crime shouldn't be in prison anyway, they should just be heavily fined or penalized in other ways. Let them make money to pay their debts and leave the prisons for dangerous people.
I think I'd do really well in white crime prison. It actually sounds pretty great. 3 hots and a cot and you wouldn't even have to bother doing normal ****ty everyday life things like going to work and grocery shopping.
Weird situation. My understanding is Kendrick’s sentencing hearing is in December.
Peoples lives have been ruined because of white collar crime. Those committing those crimes do belong in prison. Sure some white collar crime is semi harmless but most of the time this is not a victimless crime.
exactly, its not like he was arrested for domestic abuse or anything
Not the same thing as domestic abuse, not close but still a crime. Not sure I'd be signing him if I'm the Seahawks.
I don't know how anyone can think that.
Rumblings seem to be that the NFL is reviewing the case right now. I would expect there's a suspension coming for Kendricks, the question is how soon and how long.
I have a different view of what prisons should be used for - dangerous offenders only. But I understand I'm in the minority, so fair enough.
Pete Carroll is a ****ing scum bag, so I’m not surprised he’s got no issue with this.
I generally agree but white collar criminals like Bernie Madoff certainly deserve prison.
Don't let it hurt your feelings or anything, the team is down two pro bowl LB's and is interested in finding the best help available.
This doesn’t hurt my feelings. I’m a Lower Mainland, BC Packers fan. Think anything else Seahawks related may have hurt me? Like a McCarthy clinic in gutlessness circa January 2015? Haha Or a call so botched by replacement refs circa September 2012 that the nfl the next day caved to the puny loser ref union? I was there for that one and ate “12” pounds of **** from fans who couldn’t see what a joke that call was.
So this I’m ok with haha
Neat. Well here *in 2018*, Seattle is heading into a tough game in Chicago with no KJ and no Wagner. So they signed this terrible human being who was trying to buy better stocks, in the hope that they can overcome these injuries.
I have no issue with the idea that he's going to jail for what he did, but the way the system works he can still play until he does. And I welcome the help, considering the nature of his crime isn't particularly despicable, unlike say drugging and raping multiple women.
I was just taking the opportunity to rag on Pete Carroll. I find him kinda disgusting. The allegedly criminal linebacker I really don’t have a problem with being employed until he has his day in court, etc.
That night in Seattle was actually a little enlightening in a way. During my many verbal spats with Seahawks fans, I found out that a whole lot of them were Canucks fans who felt the Canucks got jobbed in the 2011 Final. So a lot of the spats turned out more amicable than they started.
Guys like Bernie Madoff and the like will never pay back what they stole from others.
Adam Schefter is reporting that the NFL suspended Kendricks before the game this weekend, however he's being allowed to play pending appeal.
Haven't seen any report of how long the suspension is supposed to be for.
