Default War Paint Illustrated:"total assclown. ASSCLOWN.”

WE GET CHASTISED FOR CITING NICK ATHAN

Posted by Mike Florio on February 4, 2009, 2:07 p.m.
I’ve known Nick Athan of Warpaint Illustrated for several years, and I’ve never regarded him as a questionable source of Chiefs news.

But that might be a result of the fact that I don’t pay much attention to the Chiefs.

With Athan’s report that Chiefs owner Clark Hunt recently said that the team has complied with the Rooney Rule when in fact Hunt never has said any such thing, we’ve now got serious concerns.

Our concerns became even more pointed upon receiving moments ago the following IM from Jason Whitlock: “LEAVE NICK ATHAN ALONE. . . total assclown. ASSCLOWN.”

(You know, Whitlock’s career would really take off if he’d quit being so damned wishy-washy about his opinions.)

“[F]eel free to quote me by name,” Whitlock said, “belittling you for even responding to that assclown’s e-mail. [H]e’s the guy who sent NFL [N]etwork an e-mail saying the [C]hiefs’ deal for [S]hanahan was DONE and that [S]chefter was wrong. [A]than is an assclown.”

Whitlock’s opinions regarding Athan’s are Whitlock’s alone, primarily since I’ve never been able to identify a consensus definition of the term “assclown.”

That said, Whitlock has never steered me wrong in the past, so I probably will be heeding his advice.

you almost feel sorry for the puns who pay money to that cite.

Chiefs should interview Whitlock to fullfill the Rooney rule

CHIEFS HAVE COMPLIED WITH ROONEY RULE?

Posted by Mike Florio on February 4, 2009, 12:01 p.m.
As the Kansas City Chiefs continue to engage in one of the most secretive job searches in NFL history, some basic information has emerged regarding the process.

According to Nick Athan of Warpaint Illustrated, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt recently told a Kansas City radio station that the team has complied with the Rooney Rule, and that Hunt is “pleased” with the candidates who have been interviewed to date.

If, then, the Rooney Rule has been satisfied, the Chiefs are free to interview and hire Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley without interviewing now or in the future any futher minority candidates.

But it’s impossible to know whether Haley is the leading candidate without knowing who the other candidates might be.

And, apparently, we won’t know any of their names, since the Chiefs presumably told them that, if any of their names emerge during the process, the team will assume that the candidate whose name emerges is responsible for the leak — and that the candidate will be disqualified from consideration.

UPDATE: Athan has advised us that Hunt didn’t actually say that the team has complied with the Rooney Rule, and that the comments came not during a radio segment but in connection with remarks Hunt made on Saturday, after former Chiefs linebacker Derrick Thomas qualified for the Hall of Fame. So if the team already has complied with the Rooney Rule, Hunt didn’t recently say so.

Apparently you have to pay to read their "premium board" with news on everything that is not known yet.

Shanahan going to KC for sure was probably reported there right when Herm was fired.

What a joke Athan is. He is an embarassment to KC. And of course Whitlock gets into this because race was involved

From Warpaint69, one of the mods (and I think, one of the writers. I think he's CE Wendler, who is a moron).

Given that he wrote "vulchers" I have to agree. Is that a cross between a vulture and a voucher?

It's actually a voucher for a free vulture.

Also closely related to a felcher.
