There have been plenty of messy divorces between star players and team front offices across the NFL in recent years. Think about it: Terrell Owens and the 49ers, Willis Magahee and the Bills, Terrell Owens and the Eagles, Randy Moss and the Vikings, Keyshawn Johnson and the Buccaneers, Terrell Owens and his sanity, Randy Moss and the Raiders, Terrell Owens and his PR agent and, well, you get the point. It’s possible that none of those splits have been as messy or acrimonious as the one between all-everything defensive end Jared Allen and the Kansas City Chiefs, whose general manager, Carl Peterson, resigned amidst a dismal season on Monday. Well, Allen wasted no time in attacking his former employer, claiming that Peterson’s own bad karma had finally come back to haunt him during an appearance on The Monty Show on SPORTING NEWS RADIO.

(Evidently Allen was channeling KANSAS CITY SPORTS.)
In case you didn’t catch all of that, here’s exactly what Allen said about Peterson:
Tim Montemayor: “What are your thoughts about Carl Peterson leaving the Chiefs organization?”
Jared Allen: “(laughing) Later!”
TM: “Come on, is there no love loss there?”
JA: “Absolutely not, you know what I’m saying? I believe in karma. Good things happen to good people. I’ll leave it at that.”
Ouch. Oh, but he didn’t stop there. It turns out Mr. Allen had plenty to get off his chest.
