Now, I hope Clark & Pioli bring him home to Arrowhead, where he should've remained...in my humble opinion. :)

Amen, get this man back in a Chiefs uniform immediatley. I could care less if he's 38. He's no longer the runner or pass catching threat he once was, but he still blocks at an incredibly high level, probably better than most of our offensive linemen.

T-Rich needs to be in a Chiefs uniform again. He will always be a Chief in my eyes, along with Tony Gonzalez. :chiefs:

This is a Tony Richardson thread.

But as for Tony G... I wouldn't necessarily say he is dead to me. I don't agree with his decision, but he had a great career while he was with us.

Yep! CP burning T-Rich was a huge negative turning point for me with CP. Then his conflicts with Jared Allen, letting him go as a result of those personality conflicts was the final straw.

T-Rich never wanted to leave, & he offered to take a pay cut to stay a Chief. He was dedicated to the Chiefs both on & off the field...hosting Draft Day without fail every April, community charities, and so much more. His private residence is still in Kansas City, last I heard.

I hope the Chiefs do the respectful thing, as well as right thing with bringing T-Rich home to Arrowhead. He will contribute both on the field and off as always. T-Rich in a Chiefs uniform is a win win situation for the Chiefs, the community, and fans. :)

You know he was traded, right? That he was shipped out by our front office for a second round pick? He'd still be a Chief if they wanted him to be a Chief.

Assuming you're responding to strickens comment related to TG...there is much more to his becoming a Falcon than what appears on the surface. Including controversy between CP & TG, which resulted because CP stuck his nose into the game plans often, and at times pulled GM rank over Coach Edwards...not allowing TG to achieve records during games he was close to achieving, and not letting Tony receive as much as he wanted to.

Assuming you also are referring to TG...you are 100% correct! Tony became a fall guy for that entire situation, to save CP & the Chiefs organization from pissed off retaliating fans, who were already falling by the wayside with habitual game losses, & losing seasons.

He would still be a chief if he wanted to be a chief. When you have a player that does not want to be here then it's best to let the player move on most the time. He wanted to go to a place that had a better chance to get a superbowl. I have not lost any respect for him. I hope he does well. I don't care if the falcons win or lose but I like to see him doing well. It may or may not have anything to do with my fantsay teams. :lol: :D

It's funny how all of these guys who have said nothing other than that they'd love to be life-long Chiefs (JA, TG) are shipped off by GMs trying to rebuild in thier own image. And all of a sudden reports start coming from the front offices that the players really wanted out all along. It's almost as if the GMs are covering their asses for shipping out fan favorites for picks.

JA was defently ran out. I don't think that is the casy with TG. Tony has made it clear that he wants to win a superbowl. And there was talk long before the Gm that traded him got to K.C that he wanted out. I don't think you can say that about Tony.

Same. I am very surprised by that move.

And I say bring him in. He obviously wants to play. And, everywhere he goes, so does the the rushing success.

Even as great a season as Chris Johnson had last year, T-Rich led the way for the team with the most rushing yards. He has made a habit of that.

The reason he began wanting to leave KC is because of negative aspects to his career and personal disadvantage, that were transpiring behind the scenes and on the field with CP, Edwards, & so on. Tony is a man of character and class, he's not going to publicly bash the organization that he spent the majority of his Hall of Fame career with, respectively.

For the most part, other than those players who lack wisdom...there is a 'code of silence' in the NFL. The public is only told those aspects of trades & contract negotiations of which are favorable to the organization more often than not. The players benefit by taking the fall in many aspects...including trust among possible teams they don't want to burn future bridges with.

Tony took 100% of the blame as a matter of class, respect for the Chiefs, his teammates, Lamar, and himself. Negotiations of trade to Atlanta had begun under CP, not Pioli. Pioli finished the trade with Atlanta respectively as a matter of ethics.

That's my opinion formed from reading between the lines paying attention to the less obvious details back when the walls began tumbling down for CP. CP was desperate to cover his own butt any way he could with fans...of which were already calling for his head over losing T-Rich, Allen, others. CP sold TG out, just like he did the rest, partially because of money, partially because of ego & arrogance...I'll always believe that.

Yep, isn't it though. I totally agree.
