Video evidence of Kareem Hunt’s altercation with a woman in a hotel is bad enough, but the NFL and Kansas City Chiefs reportedly knew about the footage yet did nothing.
Two calls in the last ten minutes from people who would know both claiming Chiefs and the league knew about existence of video in Kareem Hunt incident.

As some have quickly pointed out, it’s theoretically possible the Chiefs and the NFL did not watch the video. That would arguably be a worse decision, considering it’s willful ignorance of a potentially disgusting situation.
Not pursuing direct evidence known to exist is a failure of leadership.
Hunt was not suspended at any point of the 2018 season. Regardless of what’s to come, both Kansas City and the league will be facing severe scrutiny.
