Let the criminal investigation, if any, play out and see if we can get him to fit in here pending the results of that.

He knows the offense and he's a beast.


Been reading about this on various forums and twitter... I find the ranges of opinions fascinating. That being said, a lawyer indicated that based on the evidence this would be considered a misdemeanor at most and that it *should* cost Hunt 2-3 games.

I don't think the Bears will even sniff him, though. Me? I'd kick the tires on the kid IF I felt he was remorseful for his anger issues and genuinely wanted to have a chance to prove himself. I don't believe something like this should ruin a young man's life (this ostensibly could cost him millions upon millions of dollars).

Still... after the McDonald thing I don't see this happening.


I sincerely agree with the sentiment that this shouldn't ruin someone's life and yes I fully admit and want to take advantage of this opportunity.

Say that this incident costs him a job permanently in the league. Then what? Five years from now he robs someplace and hurts someone in the process? Gets addicted to drugs and then his life is over in his mid-20s? Over what exactly? An altercation?

A lot of people in the media are going to condemn this guy ad nauseam for the next several weeks, months maybe even years. I'd love to see what their private lives look like yet they're so quick to judge, condemn and try to ruin a guy's life over this.

Professional athletes are human beings just like the rest of us. None of us are perfect. Yet we put them on this high pedestal for personal behavior because they get paid millions of dollars and can do cool shit in sports. It isn't fair.

If it were me as the GM of the Bears, I'd be ringing his phone off the hook right now because a massive opportunity just landed in our lap.


Do you believe Kaepernick should be blacklisted for his political work? Because all too often the people who say "damn, this shouldnt end his career" also believe that Kaep made a decision and it's Kaep's fault and that the NFL is well within it's right to end his career.

I imagine he will play somewhere next season and hopefully he can turn it around. Seattle, Oakland would be my top two guesses.

He will not play again this year if the info the chiefs put out is true that he lied to the nfl and them. He probably will sit a portion of next season as well.

I highly doubt they will even take a look at him.

I absolutely belive Kaepernick should not be blacklisted for his political work.

Realistically it's a disorderly conduct charge times 2 maybe 3 depending on statements. Battery would be tossed out but both are misdemeanors.

His willingness to go after her, in my opinion, indicates he has the mindset that fighting women is okay. She also seems to have the same gene. It amazes me that people don't understand true danger. She is lucky it didn't end up worse.

It would behoove him to not drink. I could see this type of thing happening again.

On the Kaepernick thing. He was offered jobs but refused for pay or starting reasons. I believe the NFL didn't want to deal with the drama, but I also believe he has some culpability.

Total agreement and I don't even agree with Kaepernick's approach. His concerns yes absolutely, just not the execution of how he wants to get his message across.

I don’t want Hunt within three states of the Bears.

I really don’t have a problem with Kaepernick not having a job. He’s bad PR, and not a very good quarterback. He’s not worth the headache. He also (reportedly) had some insanely unrealistic expectations of his worth as he was job hunting, so his being unemployed is partly due to that as well.

What I do have a problem with is that I’d like to see guys with serious DV issues (which this is not, but it’s similar) be just as toxic.

I am of the opinion that a man should not hit a woman beyond reasonable self-defense. But I'm also of the opinion that white people shouldn't be slinging the N-word at black people without being ready to be cold-cocked. So this is rather conflicting.

I realize at this point that it's a battle I cant win, but i'd be remiss if i didnt once again point out that "kaep's wild salary demands" and "kaep turned down multiple offers" has always been bullshit, kaep said it was bullshit, and it's so painfully obvious that it's just lies leaked by a colluding nfl to paint them in the right... Teams WERE interested in Kaep before he ramped up his activism, which only lends credence to his argument that he's being blacklisted.
