OTC: Who Is Todd Haley?

Who Is Todd Haley? The Morning Rush team at 610 Sports asked that question recently to a number of people in the media who have covered Haley and the teams he has coached for the past five years. I found their comments consistent, entertaining and excellent fodder for an OTC column. Enjoy.

    Your opinions kinda lose their luster when you can’t correctly spell the name of a former League and Super Bowl MVP (Kurt Warner). Oh…and misspelling the name of a Super Bowl winning coach (Parcells).

    Awesome. Spelling smack. It really doesn’t get any better than the grammar police on an anonymous message board.

    JT, did you really have any trouble deciphering who Greg was talking about? I know I was thinking about the mid-80s Pro Bowl running back from the Seahawks until you cleared it up with your post. Thanks for helping us out.

    I agree with JT – spelling and basic writing skills are kind of necessary when you are writing copy for others to read – and getting PAID for it.

    I think it’s the one reason many people still consider blogs as unserious junk written by people sitting in their pajamas – the appearance that the “publish” button is pushed before anyone ran spell-check or made sure that the stuff they were putting on their site was actually true. A LOT of blogs have this problem.

    In my opinion, if bloggers got more serious about cleaning up the small errors, it would make a difference.

    Totally disagree, CM.

    If I WAS PAYING for the content, yeah, I would expect more. However, this is a fricking blog, not the NY Times. It comes with the territory. Ligthen up.

    And no offense to Greg here, but what do you call the stuff published on here, serious junk? No, it is unserious junk and that is why it is the first thing I read every morning.

    JT’s right and I appreciate the corrections. One thing that’s nice about online blogs compared to the newspaper is that I can fix the mistakes so that everyone doesn’t have to live with them.

    Haleys the king. Saw him down at Brios on the
    plaza one Saturday night up at the second floor bar. The guy was groping his wife’s ass and hanging on her right next to me. He was all
    over the girl. He left a $80 tip for some
    appetizers. You gotta love this guy.
    He could give a crap what people say about him
    …he’s gonna hopefully get it down here in kc.
    Shottenheimer groped waitresses and got one
    pregnant. Herm wouldn’t know what to do with
    a girl unless he could preach to her.
    Vermeil would rather talk about wine than about
    sex and gunthers idea of a romantic date was
    watching video of last weeks entire nfl game
    Good for haley. He’s got an attitude that
    should bring us a winner…in 2010.

    Dear 610 Sports…

    Please hire me. I will write anything about your station to get your name out there in public. I know your rating are bad and your shows below average at best but I will do my best. I hate 810 and KK. BTW…I’m very jealous of Steven St John and Nate Bukaty. I will never mention anything they do.Go Roger, the #1 radio host Nick Wright and of course my two favorite knuckleheads C and C.

    Curt Warner was awesome at Penn St.

    Greg – Looks like you need to get Hearne off bashing the Star and have him figure out a way to prevent what happened at 8:14.

    I’m not sure I agree with you that respect is an “earned perk,” but even if it is, isn’t it a two-way street? Doesn’t Haley have to do something to earn the respect of his players?

    And even if he doesn’t, what does Brian Waters have to do to earn the “perk” of respect? Haley may be right that he could win as many games with 22 guys off the street as the Chiefs have done, but from everything I’ve heard, until this blowup, Waters worked hard, kept his head down, said the right things and has played at a high level. He’s been to the fraking Pro Bowl after all. No one is saying Haley had the responsibility of telling Waters everything he was going to do with the team or even take an hour long meeting with Waters to listen to all of Waters’ suggestions for rebuilding, but, if the reports are accurate and Haley DID treat Waters as shabbily has been reported, well, that wasn’t really necessary either, was it?

    If it was some motovational ploy, it certainly appears to have backfired and if it was a means of expressing his authority, well, it seems he has a few things to learn. You want toc all out a player like that, amke it someone like Larry Johnson who at least arguably deserves some verbal abuse.

    Brio? You mean the Olive Garden upgrade on the Plaza? At least he’s not haunting The Capitol Grille like Carl, (Don’t I look like John Gotti) Peterson. I wish these new guys well but 6-10 is where I’m laying my dough. Matt Cassel is gonna get pounded like an extra in a Ron Jeremy video. No line…no running game…no one to throw to…not much D. You got have Pope Benedict kinda faith to think the Chiefs are gamers this year.
