We just don’t know what we
When a video emerged in late November 2018 of then-Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt pushing and kicking a woman in the hallway of a Cleveland hotel nine months earlier Jim Brown Jersey White , the Chiefs moved quickly to cut Hunt — reportedly because Hunt had lied to the Chiefs about the incident. Speaking to reporters for the first time since joining the Browns, Hunt admitted (eventually) that he didn’t tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth to the team that drafted him in 2017.“I tried to tell them as much as possible,” Hunt initially said Bernie Kosar Jersey White , via the . It quickly became clear that he didn’t tell them enough, especially in light of what the video showed.“I just told them what I knew at the time, and when the video came out, it was like me seeing it too for the first time, too. It was so long ago Jarvis Landry Jersey White , so they felt like I lied, so it’s all right,” Hunt said.And Hunt then added this: “I didn’t tell them everything, so I really take it as I kind of did.”It’s unclear what the Chiefs would have done if Hunt had admitted the February 2018 misconduct when first asked about it. If Hunt’s second chance results in his second NFL rushing title (his first came as a rookie in Kansas City), the Chiefs may regret that they didn’t ensure that Hunt’s second chance would come with the team that drafted him. When a sports team is on the wrong end of an in-depth report characterizing management as dysfunctional and inept Nick Chubb Jersey White , it can do one of two things. It can mobilize its P.R. professionals to tap into local and national media contacts in an effort to push back against all or part of the story. Or it can retaliate economically.The owners of the Cleveland Browns have opted for the latter.Michael Smith of reports that Pilot Flying J, the company owned and operated by the Haslam family, has taken steps to end prematurely an advertising deal with ESPN in retaliation for Seth Wickersham’s in-depth story regarding dysfunction and disharmony of the Browns under the leadership of co-owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam.Per the report, Pilot Flying J and ESPN are negotiating a termination of the contract, which is believed to be worth low-to-mid seven figures per year and which has two years left on its four-year duration.The fact that Pilot Flying J would cancel the deal over ESPN’s treatment of the Browns suggests that Pilot Flying J expected positive (or at least neutral) treatment of the NFL franchise in exchange for the advertising relationship. ESPN deserves credit for not playing that game.Among other things https://www.brownslockerroom.com/authentic-baker-mayfield-jersey , Wickersham’s story cited unnamed sources, who claimed that Dee Haslam at one point said, “We just don’t know what we are doing” and “[I]f we’d known how hard it would be, we never would have bought the team.”The team denied that Dee Haslam ever said this. And the team apparently didn’t appreciate the ESPN published the quotes and other comments regarding the management of the franchise since the Haslams purchased it in 2012.
