My Take (Write Blogs & Share Stories)

  • .... United States... Controlled Substance Act... (CSA)-(21 U.S.C.811)... Marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug. An illegal controlled substance. The US federal Government to this day still doesn't recognize the legality of medical marijuana. The laws usually only affect those large growers, distributors and smugglers of the drug.. Even though numerous states have de-criminalized it, or made Medical marijuana legal. IT IS STILL A FEDERAL CRIME TO POSSESS, GROW, OR SELL MARIJUANA...

       ........... This being said........

        The NFL has rules against players using Pot. In the pass It has Banned certain players who have been convicted of Possession and possession with intent to distribute. ( former Chiefs Bam Morris, Tamarick Vanover ) to name a few...From ever again to even venture into an NFL stadium..Players have been Suspended, Fined, and even given the boot from the NFL just for usage....In the light of Todays Presser with NFL Commish & head Moron Roger Goodell...…

  • It's NFL Sunday. Remember the fervor with which, just a three or four short weeks ago, that gave you the feeling that you just could not take it any more? What is the ultimate goal? It's still the goal. The Post Toasties, may be soggy. That can be remedied.

    Hearken to the Days of Yore!

    I want to say this: I like our team. I like the players we have on this team. I greatly appreciate the coaching staff, the scouts, the head coach GM and Front office. The Kansas City (NFL) Chiefs are a class organization. Even their owner and managing partner is a class act. As much as they can, they have been bringing to the organization, players who are class acts. Playmakers. Gusy from the top to the bottom. Guys that wake up in the morning and…

  • Take Two

    Don't talk about Fight Club huh? Well here's my two cents. Whether it's bullying, spanking your child or domestic violence they all are important enough to talk openly about. An entire blog I just wrote about my nephew taking his life (due in part to being bullied) ended up getting deleted as I tried to add a cover photo. Such is life. Often things don't go as planned and you adjust. As I prepare for tomorrow's memorial service and anticipate more angry Chiefs fans on Sunday, I'm reminded that my life is generally peaceful and I'm blessed that God has brought me through 41 years of life. A framed piece of art in my man cave reads "Live Life, There Is No Take Two." A wise saying indeed. It's too late to help my nephew ease the burdens he faced but I personally challenge any of you who are frozen in silence over abuse of some kind to speak up. Let someone know what you are facing or have endured thus far. Sharing the load is always beneficial. No man or woman is an island. We need other…

  • Situation Normal: NFL TEAMS DEAL WITH INJURIES

    (photos omitted)

    For the Chiefs? What looked promising has become a disaster waiting to get worse.

    Thus far, the Chiefs have lost two key players to injury -- both out for the 2014 Season: DJ and DeVito. They lost as well, Joe Mays for a lengthy stretch of games. He will very likely miss the first 6 contests. Maybe up to two more.

    The Chiefs have signed DE Kevin Vickerson(Former Bronco). Vickerson is a good addition to the Defensive Line. He is not a 3 down Defensive End but solid against the run. On the Roster, the Chiefs have Bailey and Howard listed on the depth chart.This of course is not how the Chiefs envisioned their front three before game one. They have added two players that should be deep enough if the Chiefs can get a pass rush. In the last NSLU on Monday, I noted that Walker had One Snap, one Sack. I believe signing Vickerson stabilizes the front three.

    So okay. the…

  • PAGE ONE: DISGUSTED

    What we didn't see enough?

    photo: kcchiefs.com

    I must say that I went into this season without a lot of trepidation. I found it yesterday as I followed up the NSLU article by watching the game. I had started it before the game started and finished it before the half. In fact, finishing the piece and catching the beginning of the game, I tried to maintain my focus for the article, not adding to it by adding incite from the first game of the season. After the game? I have trepidation. I too, was disgusted.

  • NSLU: Hope and Trepidation: 1963-Present

    HERE IN IDAHO We anticipate the first snow in the Bitterroots.

    For the NFL Season, my target is captured in this 1970 photo:

    Lamar Hunt and Hank Stram and the Ultimate Trophy (kcchiefs media)

    It has been cold enough. In the valley of the St. Joe, it has been cool enough to light the woodstove twice. The pre-season for me, was a time of trial and experimenting with players in positions to find the right mix.

    I have never worried much about what the pre-season results are. It only goes in the book once the NFL Season begins.

    To be sure, I have high hopes for the teams that I follow, beginning with the CHIEFS, but also adding in the Pack, the Saints and the Steelers. These are the teams…

  • Let's Make New Memories <beatzbydave

    It's a love/hate relationship https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a81eP2E8MEQ&list=RDa81eP2E8MEQ#t=0

    Remember last year? My memory's kinda foggy actually. I recall a 9-0 start and a really disappointing game against the Colts indoors where weather was a non-factor but so was our defensive secondary. The great thing about 2014 is the "newness" of it all. The Chiefs have a clean slate, fresh start, second chance at it and SO DO WE. We may not suit up but we are able to fall in love all over again every season. Yeah I said it.. that important four letter word L-O-V-E. It amazes me how many Chiefs fans sound like Raiders fans right now! If I had a dollar for everytime I heard a "fan" complain or say something negative about their favorite team I could buy the team. Odd but true how we bitch about the Chiefs (I've done it on occasion) and yet still say we're IN…

  • The Roster down to 53 -- sort of.  If I had to guess... I think they are shopping for a player here or there and shopping a tight end and possibly an RB.

    What happened was the Chiefs were able to postpone some final decisions. They added a complexity as well and my first item addressed below tells you why. Also the topic of QBs and TEs.

    Didn't think I would look to Mays return with quite so much anticipation -- Sam Sharpe, USA Today Photo

    Right now, moves are still being calculated. Today, the practice squad will be formed. That will iron out details. Keep in mind that following Game 1, Bowe will return to the 53 man roster. Keep in mind as well that after week 4, Stephenson will return to the active…

  • Thompson's Take: Santos Survives

    Well the kicker battle has been decided. The Kansas City Chiefs have elected to go with undrafted free agent Cairo Santos instead of the most accurate kicker in team history...Ryan Succop. Now it may sound like I am bitter about the Chiefs electing to go with Santos over Succop but that is not the case. Like any Chiefs fan I hate to see Succop go. He has done a lot for our team the past 5 or so years. That being said Santos is a heck of a lot cheaper, and from what I hear he may even have a slight edge over Succop because of how far he can kick it (55-60 yarders not out of the question).This was a very risky move by John Dorsey and company however. I mean you've got to have some kind of balls to go with a rookie over a veteran kicker whose proven himself and his ability to make clutch kicks. If Cairo Santos doesn't work out, John Dorsey would look like the biggest goof in the league. The fact that he's willing to put all that on his shoulders and still go with Santos makes me…

     No Reversal of the Play: The play must stand as called

    (The One's in the Chiefs vs Vikings game - Photo courtesy of kcchiefs.com)

    I will review it again Monday Morning. In fact this morning you could say, I needed a V-8 to get going myself. All in all though,  you can't reverse the final call -- put it in the book.

    Put in the book also that this was a pre-season game. I will observe, going back to last year, and other years before it, a great fear arose from fandom about how bad the team was going to be. Indeed, this happens all over the NFL. Every year. For many years, I have just chosen to view these as scrimmages and have purposely ignored the results, even to the point of not watching…
