Happy President's Day. I hope you're enjoying a little rest and relaxation if you're lucky enough to be off today. Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news.

One of the problems in this battle over money is that the owners are split into very different factions. Long-time family run teams like the Lions, Bears, Cardinals, Steelers, Bills, Bengals, Titans, Colts and yes the Chiefs, have seen modest initial investments become billion dollar franchises that have paid for a wealthy lifestyle for one, two and in some cases now three generations. Their investment is not on the same level of teams like the Cowboys, Eagles, Ravens, Redskins, Falcons, Dolphins, Texans, Browns, Jets and Vikings. Those ownership groups are carrying major debt loads that financed their purchases of the team in the last 20 years.

This is what changed my mind and why I think the Chiefs' chant is so special. They aren't trying to devalue the national anthem; these red-faced Kansas and Missouri-bred citizens are trying to show their love for their team. America is not just the home of apple pie and Snooki's poof, it is the home to one of the proudest and most historical franchises in the NFL. And if you've ever stepped into Arrowhead stadium on game day you'll have to try really hard not to get carried away and add your voice to the mass of Chiefs chanters.

Morning Brew: And the Home of the... Chiefs from Kansan.com

In 1998, when the Kansas City Chiefs were penalized 15 times in a game, many for taunting, showboating, late hits and every act of unsportsmanlike conduct, their disgusted head coach, Marty Schottenheimer, explained: "It's the SportsCenter mentality."

The New England Patriots are always interested in adding talent to their defensive front seven and could look at Liuget with their 17th or 28th pick to use him as a 3-4 end as well. Other teams in the middle of the round who could be interested in Liuget include the Miami Dolphins (#15) and Kansas City Chiefs (#21), who both run a 3-4 defense. Other teams who might give Liuget a look include Ithe Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, picking consecutively from #22 to #25. All of these teams run a 4-3 defense and would be ideal spots for Liuget.

Path to Primetime: Quarterbacks from The Mothership

Page ended up sitting out the entire off-season program and training camp, before finally signing his tender offer and reporting in early September. He was traded the next day to New England, for a seventh-round choice in 2012.

Somewhere in all that time, somebody from the Lions talked to Page or his brother/agent when they were not allowed to have that conversation. This is not unusual in the NFL. What is unusual is the other team in the equation finding out about the contact.

Whether the person talking in Detroit was the former Chiefs/current Lions defensive coordinator is not something that has come out yet. But Goodell must have had enough proof to make his decision on the discipline.
