Top Ten Things To Do With Your Bye Weekend!

 

 

 

Well, well, well. This week is the bye week for our beloved Kansas City Chiefs. If you are like me, you devote a significant amount of your hard earned weekend to eating, sleeping, watching, and living all things Chiefs. Unfortunately Kansas City is sitting at home this weekend trying to figure out adjustments, schemes, and game planning necessary to help the team come out swinging after the bye. While this is great for the team and offers the players and coaches a much needed rest midway through the season, it makes for a boring time for fans. Now I’m so mental that I require constant visual and audio stimulation to keep me out of a straightjacket so I have to find something to do with myself otherwise my wife may wind up killing me by Sunday evening. (Seriously if you don’t hear from me throughout the weekend, direct the police straight to my wife. Her name is Sa…… Umm….. Nevermind. (SHE’S WATCHING ME RIGHT NOW!)) Back to the topic at hand. Without the Chiefs playing you probably have time to kill and money to burn. Don’t ask me how you got extra money. Whatever you do on Friday nights in fishnet hose down on Broadway is your business. So lets say it was a slow night on the corner and you only have an extra hundred bucks to blow through this weekend. What should you do with your windfall of time and money? I have a few ideas…..

Top 10 things to do with your money and weekend:

 

#1: Wander around the local Home Depot – If you are like me that $100 dollars will be gone quick and you probably won’t remember why you needed an extra set of allen wrenches and 3 sets of the same deep well sockets.

 

#2: Go and visit your local Farmers Market – I know its a bit out of season but you can still go get some great produce. Also where else can you get a crappy bead necklace for $15? You got a cool Benjamin to blow and you aren’t gonna get it done with zucchini and cantaloupe. Also I will say this, I saw Dexter McCluster at the River Market in Kansas City a few years back. He signed my Chiefs shirt I was wearing. You never know who you are going to see.

 

#3: Take your significant other out to a very nice dinner – You know as well as I do that a good dinner out can smooth over a weeks worth of arguments and jealousy over who actually looks better in heels. I know they match your fishnet hose but you really can’t pull it off.

 

#4: Take 10 friends to see a movie – You can destroy that poor C-note in a short two hours with ten of your closest friends at your local theater. Only problem is it’s going to be like the damn Sahara in there because you spent all your honey-money on movie tickets and can’t afford the $12 dollar drink. Oh and God help you if you want some popcorn. You may have to spend Saturday night out working your craft to afford any refreshments.

 

#5: Go to 10 movies alone – Friends are overrated anyways and all they will do is talk through the movie. Sure as God’s got sandals your buddy Steve’s phone will ring right when you are about to find out who the real killer was, thus ruining the entire cinematic experience. Steve sucks.

 

#6: Go jogging – Lets face it, Friday was a slow night for ya. Now it could be that the Johns just weren’t out in force but it could also be that muffin top you have been rocking lately. I know one day worth of jogging won’t solve your waistline woes but it will make you feel better about yourself when you spend that hundred bucks on gummy bears and a Cinnabon.

 

#7: Rake the leaves – Your wife contacted me and said she has been on you for a while now to clean up the yard. It’s a bye weekend for Pete’s sake. Just bite the bullet and get it done with. That is unless you have a super secret hiding space in the garage like I do. The pizza guy knows where to drop the pie at and he will get a good tip for keeping his mouth shut.

 

#8: Go to Wal-Mart – The problem with going to Wal-Mart is you will spend your spare cheddar on what seems like 3 items and it will inevitably wind up costing over your 100 dollar budget. Now you are dipping into next weeks profits and that gentlemen is no way to run a respectable business.

 

#9: Check out the local mall – Let me say this right off the bat. I HATE THE MALL, I HATE IT WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BEING. That said the Oak Park Mall in Lenexa has an awesome sports store where you can trade that cabbage for a brand new Mahomes jersey. [I put that in for you Bert ;-)] The main problem with going to the mall is teenagers. One day I will snap and Laddie will have to come bail me out of jail. Good thing he moved up to KC otherwise it would have been a long time — like, three days — in the pokey waiting on sweet sweet freedom to make the drive up from Texas [Editor’s Note- I believe in tough love so… he’s still waiting three days].

 

#10: Go buy Chiefs v Bills tickets – This is what I plan on doing with my boring bye weekend. There is a group on Facebook call KC Chiefs Ticket Exchange. Through them there is a boys group that does fundraisers and offers discount tickets. For $30 bucks a seat I can get myself some nosebleed seats at the greatest NFL stadium ever built. Two tickets and a parking pass will take care of my excess financial responsibility. I may even have enough left over for an overpriced hotdog.

 

I’m sure by now you realize that this entire article was designed to put you in a good mood and help you through a weekend where there isn’t much going on in the Chiefs Kingdom. I would rather have a bit of fun and joke around than rehash the last game or over analyze the upcoming match. My hope is I was able to brighten your Saturday morning and help wake you up. I’m sure you are as tired as I am. Besides, I dread Friday nights man, the heels just kill my legs!

 

That’s all I have for you this week guys! Comment below and let me know what you think of my incoherent ramblings. As always VIVA LA JET SWEEP and GO CHIEFS!

    You’re on to something with your delivered humor John, the articles are becoming must-reads. Well done.

    P.S. Don’t worry about waiting three days in the pokey. Me and the boys will come bail you out but there is a slightly better than even chance that we will ALL be back in there the next morning, lol.

    One other thing to do this weekend is to dream the impossible dream, well, two sort of.

    First, that Clark Hunt dumps Andy Reid and his coaching staff and hires the best college football coach in the State of Texas, Bryce Patterson of TCU. Patterson, who played for K-State, has a splendid resume over the years of being involved with many aspects of coaching.

    Second dream is to hope Bryce Love of Stanford foregoes his senior year and turns pro. He is lightning fast and has proven to be a better runner and receiver out of the backfield than Christian M was when he was at Stanford running ahead of him last year. Combine Hunt with Love and the KC backfield would be a speed derby.

    • berttheclock

      Love single handedly destroyed the chances of The Dub for returning to Prime Time college football. Peters from The Dub may have set off a fire in the home of Beast Mode years ago, but, Love set a fire which killed the season for The Dubbers.

      • ladner morse

        ucla safety Jaleel Wadood got off several great hits on Love in that game — better hits than I’ve seen from the KC DBs this season — but Love got up and still had his longest runs after that.

    As for Wal*Mart, NEVER NEVER NEVER. I abhor them as much I do both Facebook and Twitter.

    • freshmeat62

      I pretty much do too! We use to do most of our shopping there. 4 years ago I went thru my bank statements and saw that we spent over $5000 there that year…groceries, tires, prescriptions, just about everything for day to day living. We started going to alternative places, most w/ lower prices, and the following year we spent only $293 at Walllyville. There are some things I have to get there, for instance Smuckers Strawberry Jam, and JIF Peanut butter. They don’t sell those at Aldis.

      Agreed
      .
      10 reasons Wal-Mart is the worst company in America

      1) Walmart hurts local communities
      2) The company uses foreign labor, including child workers
      3) Walmart underpays women and neglects pregnant workers
      4) The company also discriminates against workers with a disability and elderly employees
      5) It isn’t a safe environment for employees
      6) The company is notorious for wage theft
      7) Walmart provides poor healthcare for workers
      8) Walmart has a bad track record on animal welfare
      9) However, Walmart does care about rich people
      [In 2013, the Walton family received $8 billion in tax breaks, $6.2 billion of which came from federal taxpayer subsidies handed to them because employee wages are so low.]
      10) The chain has a deceptive public image
      [Take their OUR Walmart initiative, which attempts to silence dissenters with positive representations of the company, even as workers flood the Internet with their personal horror stories. Or the Walmart Foundation’s initiative to “fight hunger,” while their own employees go hungry, spending $300 million in taxpayer money on food stamps.]

        We used to have a neighbor whose wife threw neighborhood parties. He loved to play bartender and would tell one and all about how wonderful W*M was because they hired older workers. Several of us set him straight one night by telling him they only hired older workers on a part time basis to be such as greeters or cashiers because they knew they were on Social Security and many received Medicare. Therefore, they could pay them only base wages without any percs.

        We thought he had listened to us, but, at the very next party, he was sitting in the living room telling one and all the very same thing as he had before.

        Very few workers at their stores ever work more than 24 hours. Years ago, I talked with a fellow who worked for them assembling bicycles. He told me he was going to take a leave in order to take care of a medical issue. I replied that at least he had medical. He told me he did not have medical as he could only afford to pay for his kids portion. He had been with the company for several years.

          That’s not just WM that does that, Target does the same thing. Back in ’03-’04 I worked at the Target in Belton when they started it up. The first couple weeks we worked more than 40 hr weeks as we got the store set up and stocked. Imagine my surprise when the store opened we only worked about 20 hr’s per week. Only the managers work as full time employees, about a half dozen people. All those stockers and checkers you see, most are working 2 sometimes 3 jobs to get by.

          • berttheclock

            I, also, talked to an older man who said he kept getting raises at Target until they said they could not afford to pay him such any more, so, it was “Hit the road, Jack”. McDonalds is, also, known for such tactics

          • yes, but so it occurs in larger industry Bert. For example, moving Software engineering offshore. Big Blue, and many others.

        Did u know Target won’t allow veterans to stand out front and raise money!!! Corporate America garbage or French whatever target is

        laddie, where would you suggest as an alterhative? As for north of the river in KC, I guess I have been to most of the Walmarts one time or another and I have yet to see any children working there, but I do see a lot of older retired people working and a lot of minorities. I doubt you will find any place that sells more American made products than Walmart. You have to be aware of what you are buying no matter where you shop if you like to buy American. It always amazes me that when you see a car with a lot of Democrat bumper stickers it is usually a foreign car. And they still say they support unions.

  • freshmeat62

    I suggest taking the kids or grandkids to some place where they can learn something. I was going to take some of my grandkids to Ft Osage today, but found out that one of them went there last year on a field trip, so am thinking up a ‘Plan B’.

    As for your #3 of taking the wife out to dinner, she went up to my daughters a few days ago to help her w/ some things, and I can see by the ‘Traveling Debit Card’ that she has already taken herself out to Texas Roadhouse and a place called Cinzettis over on Metcalf(Italian buffet, and 1 of my favorite places). Me, I’ve been working on last weeks meatloaf, and some Chili I made a couple weeks ago, split up into portions and put in the freezer. I must say it was one of my better batches!

    Hope her dang steak had gristle!

    • ladner morse

      hehe

    • berttheclock

      Several years ago, the hotel Four Seasons in Seattle was famous for their version of meatloaf. Finally, a reporter for a Seattle newspaper got through to a top chef there and asked him what was the secret of success for their meatloaf. He replied, “Ketchup”.

      Who knows how true this was, but, Pat has used it ever since and hers is top notch.

      Thanks for reminding me of this date. I only put the US Flag out on a few selected days a year due to the fact I don’t have any way to hook up the needed spot light you should use to leave it out over night. Many of the so-called “Patriots” in our complex do not use any spot lights on theirs and they leave their flags out year round. Similar to the disrespect so-called Patriots do by placing a single US Flag on the left side of their vehicles, instead of the correct right side. Both the American Legion and VFW halls do advise those who want to know how to properly display their flags.

    One game some might want to check out is a NFL game between the Hapless NY Giants and the even more inept San Fran Niners. Of course, for most of the nation, this game has been banned by such as “Good Housekeeping”, the “Better Business Bureau”, the American Society of Professional Mental Health” officials and many who will see it will have a hard time trying to see any resemblance between what goes on during the game and the 1953 epic monologue by Andy Griffith of “What it was, was football”.

    But, the only reason to pay any attention to the game is the fact should the Giants lose, the HC might get canned. Already, there are reports coming out of the organization about coaches being incensed by leaks seemingly emanating from players concerning their feelings about the coaching staff. Of course, as with many organizations, leaks usually occur when staff becomes concerned about the lack of leadership at the very top.

    BTW, for anyone who has never heard that monologue by Andy Griffith, it is up on YouTube and it is worth the effort. That monologue brought him to the attention of powers to be in NYC and helped launch his long career.

    On this Veterans’ Day, do not forget that in the beginning this date was known as Armistice Day and is still known as Remembrance Day in Canada. It was to acknowledge those who had fallen during World War I. After many years, Congress changed the naming of the day to Veterans’ Day to acknowledge all who have served this great nation.

    Also, there has been a tradition for generations to wear red poppies on your lapel to remember those who fell in the poppy fields of Flanders. An entire generation was lost in that senseless war which was wrongfully called by many as being “The War to End All Wars”. Had only they been correct

    Soap box time: I hate getting over advertised about Christmas before Halloween or Thanksgiving. No Chiefs on the internet today…. so I get the 2018 draft. THE DRAFT…. double irritating, first we are not participating and second the season in only half over – what the heck?

  • a little humor can’t hurt the dour outlook of some of “us”. By US, I really mean “me”.

    I must always remember to recall the many blessings God has bestowed on me, “Of which all men have many”, dwelling not on the past misfortunes, “of which all men have some.” — Stolen from a quote by th mother of Mary Shelly.

    So thanks for this. I needed it.

    • ladner morse

      The mother of, the mother of… Frankenstein said that?

      • thinking on it? No. I have incorrectly attempted to insert a bit of intellectualism. Sheesh. it was Dickens. I attributed that to Mary Wollstonecraft(mother of Shelly) incorrectly. And I was trying to bring a little intellectualism to the site and my “dour”-ness. It was from Dickens: Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many – not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

        The Wollstonecraft reference might also be noted: “no man chooses evil because it is evil, he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.” She was a pre-victorian, and is often abused of being an early feminist. She was for education for women but not the “libertine” that the left wants people to think.

        • ladner morse

          Since the education of women — including the permission to “read” I might add — has only come into broad public acceptance in the USA in the past 100 years (but still not in many other countries as of 2017)… then it’s easy to see why people would connect the dots from Mary Shelly to feminism.

          Many in this country are unaware that prior to the last 40 years, books depicting women as the main character — much less hero or heroine — simply has not existed. When my daughter was born in the late 1970s I search and searched for books that would make her feel empowered and found little to choose from. Even today there is far too little of that to found in literature. The main way girls associate with main characters in stories comes from cartoon musicals in our society.

          Saying that Mary Shelly was a feminist and pro-education for women should be a proud moment for anyone living and breathing in our Western culture.

          • true… I was reflecting on the “libertine” attribution of feminism, which is as mistaken, but that refers to both sexes. As I recall, circa 1969, woodstock, and Frisco, loose morals, etc. that is not an admirable thing.

          • ladner morse

            The “Peace and Love” movement of the 1960s was not all bad. The loose morals aspect is what many associate that with but it also brought about a liberation of many parts of our culture including religious, feminism, fashion, and music. While those who stand outside the music arena — and what was often referred to as “scene” — came to blame the devolution of many staid cultural norms on the music that kids were listening to… I grew up in California and grew up learning to play that music and grew up writing songs like that. Songs that in my mind were spiritual in nature… but liberating for those who would hear.

            Woodstock was an important cultural event and although I didn’t get to attend, I knew those who did. It, along with the peaceful protesting that often took place in those days, was a necessary function of our country’s founding principles. Principles that distinguish us from the many other countries who only dream of the freedoms we possess.

            I once took a college course called, “Beatle As Octopus” because they affect so many parts of our cultures from television to political to humor to style to charity concerts to revolutionary ways to make music. The “Woodstock-Frisco-Loose Morals” movement has not had an “all bad” effect on our society… just as the Beatle have not. However, I’m sure some would not see it that way.

          • reflection of the sub-culture, not the culture so to speak. The undercurrents of this are deeply affecting today’s political views and the emergence of this “new American left” would have the liberals of the 50s and 60s, turning in their graves, not to mention the liberals of the 18th century who founded the Republic.

            I am reminded of this in another way. Thomas Jefferson is “said” to have fathered children by Sally Heming. Right? But his behavior, even pursuing females(he was single in France), was above board.

            So back at Monticello? His behavior remained a “Constant”. His cousin, Roger would visit. In the evenings he would go back down to the end of the stables and the simple
            “cottages” of the slaves. He would sing, play music, dance and drink with the slaves each visit — often to excess. He was a “libertine”. His DNA would be exactly the same as that of his cousin and future or current President. See what I mean?

            My genealogist friend Laree observed that I should not interrupt the “intellectual” hoopla and allow others to have their “victory”, or hoot. Now my side of that story is back in 2001 a cousin wanted me to take over the DNA project for the surname “Lawson”, one of my maternal lines. I pooh-poohed DNA at the time only to use it and start the DNA Project for the surname Calvert at familytreedna.

            Oddly, within 1 1/2 years, I had proven using DNA, that the lineage of my line indeed goes back to yorkshire(same as the Calvert’s Lord Baltimore, but totally different DNA — Nordic, vis a vis John c 1580-90ish, born at Morsholm(Mooresome at the time) near Gisbrough in Yorkshire. Using DNA allowed be to break a barrier which was at Isaac b c 1745 in PA. We proved from there around the missing birth records, DNA matches to other Calverts in a separate descent. Which means we could trace Isaac, his brother John and others to earlier antecedents which were then found in quaker records back to that same John of Yorks who removed to Ireland 1610-1617. His son Thomas(Birth recorded 1617 at the MH at Lurgan, Co Armagh IR) his wife Grace [–?–] were in Quaker records and that goes forward from there with many proofs via those records. Thomas, his son John and family removed to Newcastle and hence to upper providence, essentially, Philly in 1683.

            Look up at the very top recent comment. Hate to tell it, but, Roy Miller, the NT, has been arrested in Florida on a domestic battery charge.

          • berttheclock

            However, there exists in the South to this day “Slave Master’s Religion” which is based on White Supremacy. Yet, they deign to call themselves “Christian”. Harken back to the days when ministers would proclaim to one and all that God said slavery was just fine.

            Makes me want to hear more from Pete Seeger and his “Give me that old time religion” as in his Fluid Druids and Zorathustras. “If it was good enough for my good grandma, good enough for grandpa, then, its good enough for me.”.

          • okay. I have lived in the “south” most of my life. I have not personally known of such. Attributing such to the south is a “slur” and mis-characterization — or we might say, there was no battle at Pea Ridge. It is about 5 miles from the now Battlefield site. The site of the battle as Elkhorn Tavern and to the history of the south and it’s side of the war, the battle is known with that name. My 3rd great grandfather’s home near Mountain twp, McDonald Co Mo was about 2 1/2 miles above the tavern which was on the Military road.

          • berttheclock

            The current circling of the wagons around Roy Moore is very much part and parcel of that Slave Master’s Religion.

          • these are accusations Bert. And there is a segmnt of the population that has used this device over and over. I will leave that there except to remind you that such is very often th case.

          • jimfromkcj

            bert, it never seems to make an impression on you to see these accusations come out after so many years and none of these girls were actually raped and all seem to say that he supposedly stopped as soon as they asked him to. You and others seemed to not be the least concerned when Clinton was accused of rape and improper sexual conduct (blue dress) where there was so much proof. You show bad judgement in finding a few off color remarks from Trump and now some accusations from over 30 years ago where there were no charges filed and no actual physical evidence except for she said and want to make a big deal of them. Where were you when Clinton was running rampet.

          • PaulFromNorthMo

            Island of the Blue Dolphins was one of my favorite books when I was young. Both of my daughters enjoyed it.

        • This was Armistice Day originally, vis a vis in remembrance of those who fell during the “Great War”. My Grandfather, Harold Francis Bell served under Pershing 1917-1918. He would never reflect on the horrors he saw in the field of battles during the war. He was a very admirable man,
          very quiet, and about the only thing that I ever heard him say at all that would reflect on his being irritated was when Viva(my grandmother, Lola Viva Sargent) would interrupt he and dad talking in the living room. She was always in her kingdom, the kitchen and she would interrupt and talk about the conversation from there…. Harold would get
          irritated and say to her, ‘oh hush up’.

          The remembrance poppy
          was promoted by a woman in England, Moina Michael and here in the US. She was a professor at U of GA and volunteered for the American YWCA taking a leave from her position. She was inspired by the Poem, In Flanders Field, and wrote a poem of her own: “We Shall Keep the Faith”

          The Poem, “In Flanders Fields”. Its opening lines refer to the many poppy which grew on the ground first at Flanders where soldiers were interred. This poem was written by Lt. Col. John McCrae, who witnessed the death of a friend in 1915 and was published first in Punch Magazine in 1915 in England. She vowed to always wear a red poppy as a symbol of remembrance for those who fought and helped in the war At a conference in 1918 she worry a poppy in her coat and distributed 25 more and then campaigned to use the Poppy as a national symbol of Remembrace. This is
          ht eUSA side of it.

          The UK, Canada, Australia, France, and New Zealand also followed suit(as well as other nations).

          In 1921 a Frenchwoman sent poppy’s to London and Douglas Haig, FM, Royal British Legion adopted the symbol. The countries wo were the victors in WWI adopted the symbol. It is far less prominent today in them US and I am pleased to see it being used.

          Last year I wrote about the meaning of the different meanings of the colors, red, black and the green leaf/stem.

          In remembrance of those who have fallen in behalf of Freedom, Liberty and our Republic. And with respect to those who have and do serve.

      Interesting about Lawrence of the Cowboys. He was included in a long thread this AM by Joel Corry about how players are looking at the moment in their respective contract years. Corry expects the Cowboys to extend him or even franchise him. The argument against this would be that happens to be his best production year, so, is it a fluke?

  • berttheclock

    Hate to include a downer moment, but, earlier this AM in Jacksonville, FL, police arrested Roy Miller, NT of the KC Chiefs for domestic battery.

      Oh Geez!

      Time for someone to get cut. There should be no tolerance for that

      • an arrest does not prove this occurred. Such accusations are used as a “weapon” also. keep this in mind.

          I was a bail bondsman for 4 years and from my experience a BATTERY domestic and a regular domestic Violence is the tell tale. When u see Battery you know there was a good amount of damage to a person

          • Not saying that this is not true. OTOH, I have known females to make completely false accusations and when there is no visible battery, the opposite is often true. I think we have to wait and see what the investigation shows, the charges, etc. Just being arrested doesn’t make you guilty.

          Chiefs should definitely do their due diligence before they cut him. If a preliminary investigation doesn’t look good, they should drop him fast.

        Absolutely especially in KC

      • Homer Dave

        Right, don’t forget to cut Hill.

    • what expletive is polite here? Sheesh.

    • drwillez37

      Peace out Miller you won’t be missed!!!

  • berttheclock

    Laddie, you were talking about movies and/or books which empower women. May I suggest two movies. The first will be hitting the screens about this time. It is “Lady Bird” set in Sacramento, CA. Young coming of age movie.

    The other came out last year and I have seen it and highly recommend it to anyone. It is “Hidden Figures”, based on a true story of 3 women, who happened to be African-American and were great mathematicians. They were all very much a part of the Moon Shot program done out of Langley.

  • off to other duties… later

      What a loser!!!

  • drwillez37

    I’m watching VT vs GT and there’s a kid named Greg Stroman he plays CB he’s a beast a ballhawk that tackles and punt returns he doesnt have a million ints but when he does he takes it to the house along with a few punt returns for touchdowns

    • Chiefly Bacon

      I’m always down for a CB who’s a quality PR. If you have the agility for one, you often have the agility for the other.

  • drwillez37

    This might be old news but there’s an Assh@Le alert
    ..Roy Miller from our KC Chiefs was arrested on Domestic Violence charges!!!! Later dude hit the road

    • drwillez37

      I’m sorry Domestic Battery charges…we been down this road let’s cut the cord

      • tm1946

        Innocent until proved guilty or at least indicted…. divorce, couples, and all that stuff can make for interesting stories and truth has nothing to do with it.

        If the Chiefs find there is a basis to the story…cut him.

        • Homer Dave

          and then Hill?

  • drwillez37

    Hey now…ARMY is 8-2

  • drwillez37

    Poor Georgia bulldogs…they are getting STOMPED!!!

    • drwillez37

      Iowa just got hosed!!by the bad luck fairy

  • Homer Dave

    Been reading Facebook and Tweeter in regards to the Miller situation and I’m going to put this very, very bluntly. If you are an advocate of releasing Miller due to his ALLEGED involvement in DV and NOT holding convicted felon T. Hill to the same standard you are a person of dubious character.

    Take offense, call me names, block me, do your thing..but at the end of the day you’re still not right.

    • Homer Dave

      and before anybody @me, Hill was convicted in August of 2015 and given sentence of 52 weeks of batterer intervention week and 3 years of supervised probation. So, Hill still has not completed his sentencing. This whole “Hill has paid his price” thang is b*llsh*t too.

      • ladner morse

        The difference is… Hill’s offense took place years before the Chiefs met him… Miller’s is in the present… it is now. By the time we met Hill, we all knew he was taking a path of regret and repair.
        We don’t even know what Miller’s attitude and intent is yet.

        • Homer Dave

          Tyreek Hill was drafted in the 2016 draft, the ink wasn’t even dry on his court orders yet. And I completely disagree with the idea that there is any difference. Both are cases of DV and even though we have zero idea as to the extent, or even validity, of Miller’s charges we DO know that Hill choked and punched a pregnant female.

          There is always minutia in any given situation but the by and large in comparing the Hill and Miller situation is that one is an extremely talented player and the other not so much.

          If Hill was a not-so-much player we wouldn’t even be having this debate.
