    And just like that a legend is gone

    MARK SANCHEZQB, UNSIGNED FREE AGENT
    Mark Sanchez has retired from the NFL.

    Sanchez was forced into a Week 14 spot start for the Redskins when Colt McCoy got injured last year. He managed to stick around as a backup despite looking washed the past several seasons. Sanchez made playoff appearances the first two years of his career but had been on a downward trajectory since. He finishes his career with a 56.6 completion percentage, 15,357 yards, and an 86:89 TD/INT ratio. Sanchez will move into broadcasting as a college football analyst for ESPN.

    Now you're telling me that all of that hand-wringing and complaining was all for naught?
    Much like the "Lions have been crap for 60 years so they will be crap forever" posts. No need to play the season. Who will they draft next?

    Well, someone rushed to judge without all the information. But it's cool because the narrative is "Hill must play all our games to give the Chefs a playoff home game against the Pats..." Strong words. Does that gate swing both ways? Uh huh... Authorities in Kansas refused to give NFL documents regarding Tyreek Hill case

    The NFL’s in-house justice system is deeply flawed, for a variety of reasons. One of the most important reasons is this: It often has no power to get the evidence needed to properly investigate incidents involving players.

    While the league can compel players and league/team employees to cooperate, the league has no authority to issue subpoeanas for testimony or documents to people disconnected to the NFL.

    As explained by A.J. Perez of USA Today, those inherent limits on the NFL’s investigative abilities prevented the league from conducting a complete investigation regarding child-abuse allegations made against Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill. Perez reports that prosecutors in Kansas relied on an exception to the state’s open-records law to deny the league’s request for information relating to the case that explored whether and to what extent Hill’s son was the victim of child abuse.

    On April 24, Johnson County, Kansas prosecutor Steve Howe said at a press conference that he believes a crime was committed against Hill’s son, but that insufficient proof existed as to the identity of the perpetrator.

    The league made the request for information that same day. The next day, Howe responded, citing the exception to decline to provide any information to the NFL.

    This means that Hill hasn’t been exonerated by the league. Instead, the NFL was unable to find a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy because it can’t get the information from the agency that is entitled to keep it secret, given that it has decided that it lacks proof beyond a reasonble doubt to prove Hill’s guilt.

    It’s still unclear why Howe didn’t simply choose to charge both parents — Hill and Crystal Espinal — presenting the evidence and letting a jury decide whether either or both were responsible for the crime that Howe believes was committed. Even if both were acquitted, the league would then have access to the evidence, if any, against Hill. Given that the NFL applies a much lower standard to matters of guilt or innocence, the evidence that would be introduced at a trial of Hill and/or Espinal could have been enough to justify discipline.

    Meanwhile...
    Jarran Reed case highlights another major flaw in NFL’s in-house system of justice

    Posted by Mike Florio on July 23, 2019, 6:46 AM EDT

    Just when it appeared that the NFL was getting out of the business of policing the private lives of players not arrested or charged with crimes, the NFL pulled itself back in, with the six-game suspension imposed on Seahawks defensive lineman Jarran Reed.

    Although the league seems to be exercising far more caution when dealing with players who never faced the scrutiny of the criminal justice system, the NFL’s in-house system of justice becomes much easier to apply in the absence of formal public legal proceedings when the alleged victim of a player’s wrongdoing chooses to cooperate with the NFL.

    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the alleged victim in Reed’s case did indeed cooperate. If she had refused to do so, it would have become much more difficult for the league to do anything about the allegations against Reed, because (as noted on Monday in connection with the league’s inability to get information regarding the child-abuse investigation involving the son of Tyreek Hill), the league has no power to force people not connected to the NFL or any of its teams to cooperate.

    This fundamental flaw in the NFL’s ability to gather potentially relevant evidence likely contributes to the perception/reality of inconsistent outcomes more than anything else, although plenty of other flaws exist in the process. It’s gotten bad enough that an employee of the NFL — Judy Battista of NFL Media — publicly said what needed to be said regarding the confusion created by the Friday decision not to suspend Hill and the next-business-day decision to suspend Reed.

    “I know domestic violence cases are difficult & sensitive,” Battista said on Twitter. “But the wildly different outcomes of NFL investigations without much public explanation give the impression to players & fans the discipline is random & arbitrary. True or not, it’s a bad look and the NFL has to fix it.”

    She’s right, and hopefully instead of getting miffed that someone who is supposed to be part of the broader “team” has decided to provide a fair, honest, and candid critique of the situation, the NFL will engage in a fair, honest, and candid assessment of its own subpar procedures in order to ensure that discipline of a player doesn’t hinge on whether a witness with no connection to the league is willing to talk.

    In Hill’s case, the mother of the child reportedly refused to cooperate. The Kareem Hunt case languished (until TMZ got involved) in large part because the victim refused to cooperate. Conversely, the alleged victim in Ezekiel Elliott‘s case from 2017 willingly submitted to interviews at least six times — even though when the time came for Elliott to defend himself the league basically said, “We have no power to compel her to show up and be questioned.”

    So, yes, the perception is that the league is all over the place when it comes to disciplining players who were never arrested or charged. It’s also the reality.

    He’ll be back in the news for beating up a pregnant woman or a child sooner rather that later.

    Got it. Thanks NFL
    With Hill on the roster, should we expect more — or less — from Hardman and other Chiefs players?

    Methinks the talks between Rosenhaus and Quinn went well and Snacks is showing up at camp as a sign of good faith.
