People saw right through Kareem Hunt's apology interview on ESPN

Hunt elected against delving into what happened between himself and the woman in the video prior to the incident caught on tape.

Hunt was released by the Chiefs on Friday after the team learned about the video dating back to a February altercation with a woman in a Cleveland hotel. The video, which has no sound, shows Ottinger appear to follow Hunt into the hallway and say something to the player, who breaks free and pushes a man into Ottinger, sending them both to the ground and her face-first into a wall.

"Peer-to-peer, I would definitely try to help him figure out, 'How can we start dealing with the underlying problems in your life?'" Rice said. My mother raised me right.

"I really wish that I could just apologize to them, and let them know there (are) no hard feelings between me and the Chiefs, and I love the program, love the people there, and I just want to take this time and better myself and not let anything like this happen ever again". "I made a poor decision and I'm willing to take full responsibility".

"Honestly I just want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions, " Hunt said.

After the video was released, the Chiefs chose to release Hunt, citing the fact he wasn't completely honest with them. As for its "investigation" last February, we know now that the league did not even interview Hunt or the woman he pushed and kicked. "But if I could I would want to tell her right now that I am sorry for my actions that night", Hunt said. And the Chiefs did what was right. "The video shows it".

Their fan base, however, seems to be pretty torn on how they would feel if their team did indeed claim Hunt.

"They believed that I lied to them". But there is little expectation that the Chiefs' move to release Hunt will mark the end of his National Football League career.

Patrick Mahomes is just trying to focus on this season and avoid any outside distractions as the Chiefs look to compete for a Super Bowl. As the NFL Network's reliable Ian Rapaport put it, "Neither the NFL, nor the #Chiefs, had seen the video before it was published today". "The NFL's ongoing investigation will include further attempts to speak to the complainants involved in the incident". "These are non-investigations. It goes back to willful ignorance, and arrogance and hubris on the part of the NFL".
