    Lie detectors being administered by football teams as a means of determing if a guy keeps his contract and signing bonus? What the hell is going on here -- and this is a slippery slope I don't think anyone wants any part of.......

    Mike Shanahan has lost it.

    You libs will do anything to trash our president, won't you?

    I guess you could look at it the other way -- if he was going to cut him and used the lie detector test to decide to keep him, it may be a good thing.

    Though I don't think lie detector tests are all that accurate.

    Screw the lie detector and send them to Gitmo.

    A little old fashioned torture will get the truth out of 'em.

    What's the problem?
    Kircus gets arrested, sending a guy to the hospital. Shanahan says the version of events are different from what is in media reports and the team will let the facts play out and if Kircus is guilty/telling a different story, he'll be off the team.
    The team offers Kircus to take a lie detector test -- and he agrees. He takes it and passes it and will stay on the team.
    It sounds like he was defending himself and didn't take the first swing and was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. But still, if he agreed to take the test, what's the big deal?

    The team "offered" Kircus to take a lie detector test?

    Yeah, we'll make him an offer he can't refuse.

    Kircus obviously felt very confident in what would come out from the test then.

    Ace -- Congrats. You are the first person to ever accuse me of being a lib, that is unless your first sentence was mistakenly in black as opposed to blue.....

    You're missing the point.

    That twit Shanahn is under the impression that he's more than just a football coach---he's the head of some parallel legal system where he is judge and jury.

    And as someone asked, where the hell was the player's association in all this? They should have been all over this from the very beginning.
