Wrap your head around his one:
If the Seahawks had been on a normal schedule, new CB Quinton Dunbar would have been working out with his new teammates in Renton, and away from his home area of South Florida, where an arrest warrant was issued Thursday charging him with four counts of armed robbery for an incident Wednesday straight out of the 1980s TV crime series, Miami Vice.
And the club also wouldn’t have to deal with forehead-slapping irony of having the news break eight hours after they featured him on a Zoom conference with Seattle media, and less than 12 hours after the incident.
Dunbar and New York Giants CB Deandre Baker, the 30th overall pick in the 2019 draft, are charged by police in Miramar, FL., a suburb between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, with robbing party-goers of cash, watches and jewelry. Along with a third man, they left quickly in three cars — a BMW, a Lamborghini and a Mercedes-Benz — all poised for a fast exit.
The charges, first reported by TMZ, were confirmed by the police in a tweet.

Baker, 22 and a native of Miami who starred at Georgia, has four additional charges of aggravated assault with a firearm.
Police say they were called to the scene of an armed robbery at 12:20 a.m. after the party began around 8 p.m. Witnesses told police an argument began, Baker flipped over a table and took out a semi-automatic firearm. Under Baker’s direction, Dunbar began taking valuables from guests.
A third man, wearing a red mask, was ordered to shoot someone who just walked into the party. No guns were fired, police reported. More than $7,000 in cash was taken, along with a Hublot watch valued at $25,000 and other expensive items.
Witnesses were conflicted about whether Dunbar had a gun, although the application for the arrest warrant said that Dunbar allegedly “took money and watches belonging to the victim(s) with force; permanently depriving them of said property. In the course of committing the robbery, Quinton Disheen Dunbar was armed with a semi-automatic firearm.”
A witness told police that he met Baker and Dunbar at a party a few days earlier in Miami, where the players were said to have lost more than $70,000 gambling.
Neither player was in custody as of Thursday afternoon, although ESPN reported one player had talked with police about turning himself in.
Dunbar, 27, who grew up in the Overtown neighborhood of Miami and was a wide receiver at the University of Florida, was acquired March 23 by the Seahawks for a fifth-round draft choice. He was seen as tough competition for incumbent Tre Flowers, whose production fell off late in the season.
Dunbar started 25 games for Washington from 2015-19, but finished the last two seasons on injured reserve. He’s in the final year of a three-year, $10 million deal that he complained about after the season. He wanted a new deal or a trade. New coach Ron Rivera chose the latter. The Seahawks had not committed to extending Dunbar’s deal.
The Seahawks acknowledged the episode in a tweet.
Statement from a @Seahawks Spokesperson:
We are aware of the situation involving Quinton Dunbar and still gathering information. We will defer all further comment to league investigators and local authorities.

Dunbar, 6-2 and 202 pounds, was considered the Seahawks’ top veteran acquisition in the off-season because of his production as an 11-game starter in Washington in 2019, prior to a hamstring injury that ended his season. Even though the Seahawks finished the regular season 11-5 and won a playoff game, the defense was ranked 26th.
The analytics site Pro Football Focus ranked Dunbar second behind the 49ers’ Richard Sherman fo 2019.
Before the trade, Dunbar in multiple interviews claimed had been “disrespected” over money by Washington and welcomed the move to Seattle.
“You just want to feel wanted at the end of the day,” he said in the Zoom conference from his Florida home, apparently just hours after the incident. “They made it their job to trade for me. That’s good enough for me, and I just hope to repay them the way I carry myself as a person and as a player.”
Dunbar definitely is wanted now.
And if the charges are true, he has lots of people to repay.
Far too many Americans have shit for brains, and that includes Seahawks. That’s why we have a shit-for-brains president and are in this coronavirus predicament. We can only hope that God sent the coronavirus to weed out all the trash in this country. .
What about weeding out sweeping generalizations?
TDS much snowflake? Keep your lib rants to yourself, fool.
Go inject yourself with disinfectant, fool.
Typical shit-for-brains reply. Yawn.
Go inject yourself with disinfectant, fool. What have you got to lose?
TDS = Trump Disinfectant Syndrome
God sent Trump to weed out the trash. He’s only been a politician for 3-1/2 years. He didn’t kill America, he walked in on the corpse left behind by Obama, Clinton, Bush, Et al. They never thought she would lose. #obamagate
If you support Trump at this point, I will not judge you for your choice of political parties. I have voted for Democrats, Republicans and “others.” I will judge you on your lack of morals, ethics and humanity. So will history.
I was a lifelong left-of-center person until this. The lacking of morals, ethics and humanity is clearly with the Democratic leadership at this point. They are literally willing to sacrifice millions, sacrifice our freedoms and personal autonomy, and plunge us into a depression out of an irrational hatred of one single human with a bad fake tan. Nobody is arguing that Trump is perfect, or that he hasn’t said terrible things in the past. Zero people are saying that. However, the facts in this case are the facts. There was no collusion with Russia, except by the very people who are accusing it of Trump. There has been a concerted and coordinated attack on him since before the 2016 election even occurred. The evidence is there, should you be able to accept it. Maybe people will not. If Hillary had won, we would have never heard of COVID19. He is draining the swamp, and it runs deeper than any of us ever imagined. The right side of history will indeed be recorded, and Trump is on the right side, in this instance.
Somebody has been in the echo chamber again….
That would be you apparently. See, I don’t follow any party line. I participate in the free exchange of ideas and discernment. You know. As america was designed to work. When something is proven false, I don’t continue to believe it just because my team says I have to in order to stay on the team. 🤷♂️✌️♥️
It’s pretty clear what team you are on now, though, that’s for sure. And you have swallowed that team’s fact-free propaganda–hook, line and sinker.
Actually, you have no idea about me. The sad thing is the media has people so twisted in the head that they actually think if a person doesn’t viscerally hate Trump in every way imaginable, they must be a mindless sycophant. There is an in-between, you realize. Most things live in the grey area. “Red or dead” is exactly as stupid as “blue no matter who.”
I’m probably the biggest damn hippy on this board. The last time I voted for President was in 2000 and I voted for a dude who is a proponent of Transcendental Meditation. Do I think Trump is truthful all of the time? Hell no. But why would I be stupid enough to think that he (or any President) is going to be transparent with the public while the entire world financial system is being restructured?
In the words of that massively corrupt, literally senile old man that the Dems want you to vote for, “Come on, man.”
Trump has two emotions— anger and paranoia.
“He has not only not drained the swamp, he himself IS the swamp. He has surrounded himself with two sorts of support–obsequious sycophants from the beginning, or once legitimate actors who have sacrificed their integrity to be his minions. His gross negligence in dealing with this virus highlights the damage that can be done when a manifestly self-obsessed, fundamentally uneducated and emotionally stunted person has to lead us through a real crisis that cannot be gaslighted.”
Bruce, if this was more related to sports, you might be giving Art a run for his money. Well done. Art? Don’t say you weren’t warned.
“I couldn’t possibly have said this better.” Yes. Obviously. LOL.
The cognitive dissonance of this is astounding. He has drained the swamp (which is made up of the corrupt career politicians who got us into this mess), but he is also the swamp (even though he’s only been in politics for 3-1/2 years). That makes sense. :p
He is not *of* the system, he is a *product of* the system. Your hatred of him should lead you to have an equal hatred of the system that allowed him to flourish in the first place. But no. He’s the *only one* worthy of such distain. Smh.
“A person they used to revere, by the way, when he was on “their team” and the star of the biggest reality show on TV.”
No one used to revere him. He was always seen as a self promoting clown. You’re delusional.
They revered him enough to promote and profit from him instead of actively take him down at the time. He’s always been the same dude. Remarkably consistent. Watch any video from the 80’s or 90’s taking about America, business, politics, China…. Now he’s not on their team anymore, so he must be destroyed. Pretty obvious.
“They revered him enough to promote and profit from him instead of actively take him down at the time”
What do you mean “take him down”? You mean before he was a politician? You’re not even making the slightest bit of sense, how do you expect a private citizen to be “taken down” in a free society for expressing his opinion? If you want proof of how he was mocked and ridiculed I’d say look no further than the 2011 White House correspondents dinner. Maybe you’re just not old enough to know his protectionist trade stances in the 80s and 90s were at strong odds with the economic sentiments of BOTH parties at the time. Clinton actually ushered in NAFTA.
Regardless, he wasn’t a politician in the 80s and 90s so it’s irrelevant what he thought, he was just a private citizen with money spouting off. No politician was promoting his ideas because he’s not not economist. Like I said, you’re delusional if you think anyone revered him. You’ve been living in the fake news chamber so long you’ve become a propaganda casualty.
Speaking of bad deals… I marched against the WTO in Downtown Seattle with all of the other hippies. Who left the WTO? Trump. Who legalized Industrial Hemp in the USA? That would be McConnell and Trump. Who ended the Fed and took the money out of Rothschild hands? Trump. Who is ending our reliance on Chinese goods and Saudi Oil? Trump. Who is blowing up the drug/human trafficking networks, particularly the massive tunnel system under the southern border? Trump.
Is he kind of an undeniable douchebag? Totally! Does he have a filter on what he says publicly? Not really. Is he a career politician who got us into this mess? Hell no. Anyone who is ending the corrupt reign of the New World Order (whose members include people from both sides of the aisle, including Paul Ryan, John McCain, et al) is more good than bad in my book.
Also, media “takes down” private citizens who do not fall in line with their narrative all the time, and they prop up corrupt demons who support their narrative until it actually begins to work against them (see Harvey Weinstein, for example).
I get your love for him, but some consistencies of character are not something to brag about. See David Duke, Hitler, etc.
Love for him? Far from it. Consistency of character? How did you feel about Christine Balls Ford vs Tara Reid? The democrats have become the very definition of cognitive dissonance. So blindly hateful that they will literally believe things completely against their internal moral fiber as long as it does not challenge their emotional state.
How ’bout those Seahawks?
Irrelevant at this point.
I bet Pete is secretly waiting for Trump to fulfill his promise of revealing the truth behind 9/11.
I do not expect to see the Seahawks play this year. Maybe never again. Some of the states with NFL teams have authoritarian Governors who will keep their states shut down thru the election, because it’s win at all costs for them. Can’t have a season if Cali, Michigan, etc., don’t allow their citizens to gather in stadiums.
How ‘bout that idea the NFL will vote on next week to award higher draft picks to teams who hire minorities as GMs and HCs? 🤷♂️🤦♂️
“Trump revealing truth…” I have no further comment your honor.
Right. Because obviously, as with all things, there is only one possible point of view. Smh.
BTW – Did I ever say that I think Trump is the one running the show? Nope. Much of this is above even him. He is the figurehead, just as all Presidents are. He was recruited late in the 2016 election cycle, to be the face of the systemic take-down of the NWO/Cabal/Khazarian Mafia, or whatever you want to call it.
Ask yourself a simple question: Why has not one mainstream news reporter asked Trump why he re-tweets Q posts and information?
They call him out on everything else. They call him crazy, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, attack him from every angle about every single thing he says, except this. If they weren’t terrified of Q, wouldn’t they be absolutely lambasting him on a daily basis for re-tweeting deranged conspiracy theories?
Instead, they will not ask, because it opens the can of worms that they must keep shut, at all costs. Asking the question legitimizes it and leads to the sheeple waking up. Which, of course, they cannot have. Its win or die for the establishment.
So, back to sports…. You’re in favor of the NFL awarding higher draft picks to teams based on the skin color of their employees?
You’ve internalized the propaganda like any good member of a cult. Slow down and take a deep breath.
Lol. The funny thing is y’all assume I listen to him for info, because you can’t imagine there could possibly be truth outside of the singular Orwellian mainstream narrative. I do my own research. I don’t rely on propaganda from any direction. Most of what Trump says is intended to evoke strong emotional reactions to draw the snakes out from under their rocks, unwittingly exposing themselves. Give them enough rope and they will eventually hang themselves. Works like a charm.
Seems like you are the snake that has unwittingly exposed yourself, but you won’t understand that because you have SFB.
You were practically copying and pasting Foxs News/ Sean Hannity propaganda talking points. Your analysis contained nothing original. Did your confirmation bias when reading 1984 (if you indeed did) convince you that Bush orchestrated the 911 attacks? One fair is Trump’s similarity in disposition to Napoleon in Animal Farm. I’ll give you that. Now, back to sports!
I don’t watch Fox News, I don’t listen to Hannity. See, you can’t even have open eyes or ears and actually absorb what I am saying. Instead you project onto me your own MSM-contrived talking points, because the only possible option in your mind is that if I don’t agree with the MSM, and if I don’t viscerally hate Trump on every level, with every fiber of my being, then I must be a full-on sycophant. Which, I am telling you, is the opposite of the truth of where I am coming from. But you won’t hear it, which is totally your right. You have free will. But just know that everything you are assuming about how I come to my opinions is 100% wrong.
At what point last nigjt did it occur to him that he just threw his life into a dumpster?
I doubt the thought occurred to him until after he’d heard of the warrant issued today. He appeared upbeat in that zoom teleconference with Seattle press this morning.
Yeah….you’re probably right. He sure seemed cheerful enough. Surreal.
Eager to be on another Zoom with him to ask.
I very much doubt you will have that opportunity, Art.
You, counselor, may be in touch well before me.
Haha! Good one
Might not be there yet.
Too early to pass judgement but if this is even remotely true how an NFL player who is earning a six figure salary be involved in something like this, during a pandemic no less, is maddening. Too bad the Seahawks had to lose a draft pick over this. At least it wasn’t a high pick though they could really use Dunbar. Looks like Tre Flowers might be getting a second chance.
Seven figures. 3.2 mil base.
But yeah, I guess the only thing that can be said is the Giants got it worse. They burned a first round pick on their boneheaded thug.
Dunbar seemed to be an upgrade. Maybe he’ll get a chance in the next Longest Yard sequel.
Or Dumb and Dunbar??
You stole my line!
A million is 7 figures
Dunbar was just practicing his bump and run technique.
The kid should have known better, however, he’s still of the age to be young, brash, and stupid. If he is convicted of this felony, namely in Florida, his potential for a good life is wasted. I hope he has someone who’s friend enough to slap some sense into him.
Well, at 27, his cerebral cortex is fully formed, so that excuse is out.
It seems sociopathic that a person who 12 hours earlier had carried an automatic weapon and (allegedly) committed armed robbery would then remark how he carries himself as a person.
I’m eager to read of the witness affidavits contesting the police account. Maybe Dunbar was forced to join the robbery.
Anybody hear about that Dunbar guy being wanted for robbery?
Art, thanks for injecting clever bits of humor into an otherwise bummer of a news story for the 12s. As for most of the common taters below, please take your politicized rants elsewhere.
Glad you noticed, Eric. Thanks.
I have deleted the posts I made on Trump. I have to remind myself that this is Art’s site, and it is inappropriate and disrespectful to him to hijack it with politics.
A gracious gesture. I have thought about the same notion, but sports and politics are increasingly inseparable. Covering nine Olympics has burned that into my professional outlook, but these days almost every aspect our culture is riven with politics. No fence is sturdy enough. Y’know, like trying to build a wall at the southern border. A worthless gesture.
Since I have written occasionally on political impacts, It would hardly be fair to deny readers a chance to comment. Some readers go too far, but for the most part, group self-policing is a risk worth taking. As you have demonstrated.
