    So you don't care about if he flips out and possibly does something incredibly stupid or hurts someone here? That's a acceptable risk for you to take on for a player who hasn't even played football in 2 years and might have a off chance of still being productive?

    Let's not act like the Raiders signing the guy is some kind of great vote of confidence of his present ability either. They signed him to a one year contract. It's a straight up tire kick which will most likely end up with him getting the boot out the door before the season starts.

    I agree that we shouldn't just can prospects or players with checkered pasts, but the reward has to greatly outweigh the risk, just like any other investment made in life/business. There isn't much upside or potential reward that's going to offset the risks of signing a 36 yo psychopath who hasn't even played football in 2 years. The players with baggage that you should consider better still be in their prime.. there's just not enough upside there. I'd rather roll the dice on a player ten years younger who isn't a complete maniac with a deteriorating brain. It just doesn't make sense, but that's just me.

    Remind me again.. how many Championships has Richie won? Hell, how many times has his teams even made the playoffs during his 11 year career?

    Do you threaten to kill everyone in a funeral home after they decline your request to sever your father's head? That's my issue, not the fact that he owns/carries. This guy didn't just "carry a gun with him" either. He had multiple hand guns/multiple rifles, and even a damn silencer on him.. (why would anyone need that?).

    Trying to pass this off as carrying a gun on him, is like saying the Las Vegas shooter just carried a gun. The guy drives around with a entire arsenal of weapons (and a silencer in his car). Completely off the wall behavior and irresponsible for any gun owner.

    Also another huge red flag for me is how his own family is weary of him being around.

    So hiring Caserio would make his BFF O’Brien untouchable? No thanks. I don’t want another tight relationship as Cal and Godfather Rick had that kept Smith here longer than he should have been.

    To be fair that's what everyone was saying about Gaine to.

    I'm sorry, I wasn't able to follow the discussion at that point.

    Stab me in the eye with a red hot poker.

    I don't know. A few months from now Cal may want nothing to do with Caserio & O'Brien. He may want to start with a clean slate. If you think Caserio has what it takes to be a good GM, we should probably get him now that we have a coach he wants to work with.

    I hope so. I'm tired of hearing about O'Brien and having his BFFs from the Patriots at NRG. They are not building a clubhouse on Kirby. I can understand a HC hiring his buddies for his coaching staff, but to fill the organization with O'Brien's BFFs seem to be counter productive to a winning professional organization.
