LOL, stupid Tice. That should provide him with enough chewing gum and pencils for one more season though.

I'm sure that is crossing their minds but who in their right mind will be the head coach for only $1 million(not a quality one) and a fruit cake for an owner???

Amen to that! In fact, that gives me an idea for a new post.

If it wasn't for the rat, no one would have ever known. If I was in his position (able to get free Super Bowl tickets) I would be doing the exact same thing. Who can honestly say they wouldn't? You sir are a shmuck. Super Bowl tickets run up into the thousands for a single seat, and I don't care how rich you are, no one in their right mind is going to turn down that kind of money.

Depending on how many tickets the team was able to receive, TICE AND HIS ENTIRE STAFF could be pocketing upwards of 100,000 bucks. Now because of the punk who turned him in, no one in the organization, and possibly the entire NFL, will get their end of season Super Bowl bonus money. Sucks for the hypothetical kicking coach who is only making 75k a season...

Coaches don't get guaranteed money and they get fired just as easily as players. When was the last time you saw a coach receiving a multiple million dollar bonus?

It's been reported that in a single trip Tice transported aprox. $250,000 in cash back to Minnesota from Chicago. Now who else might be interested in this?
"I can't believe how rampant it's been. Stuff like this has gone on a long time. There's a pretty good amount of people involved. There could be a lot of people affected by this, not just in the NFL's view, but with the IRS as well." :-o

The reason I bring this up is because Tice could potentially face a Federal money laundering idictment.
Here's a portion of the actual Federal Money Laundering Code:

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 95 > § 1956

§ 1956. Laundering of monetary instruments
Release date: 2004-08-06

(a)
(1) Whoever, knowing that the property involved in a financial transaction represents the proceeds of some form of unlawful activity, conducts or attempts to conduct such a financial transaction which in fact involves the proceeds of specified unlawful activity?
(A)
(i) with the intent to promote the carrying on of specified unlawful activity; or
(ii) with intent to engage in conduct constituting a violation of section 7201 or 7206 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986; or
(B) knowing that the transaction is designed in whole or in part?
(i) to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, or the control of the proceeds of specified unlawful activity; or
(ii) to avoid a transaction reporting requirement under State or Federal law,
shall be sentenced to a fine of not more than $500,000 or twice the value of the property involved in the transaction, whichever is greater, or imprisonment for not more than twenty years, or both.

Yikes, you don't want to mess with the Federales.
