I've never been a fan of Kelly and his demeanour/persona....these are rather serious charges and allegations and doesn't speak well of the Argos handling of this incident....there's always more to the story that we don't always get however it shines a bad light on the Argos star QB and the Argo management.

Bad light is right!! Kelly has always struck me as one strange duck, but this is over the top serious. If convicted, wonder what the league is going to do in terms of actions/suspensions. This violates any and all code of conduct policies around.

Don't think he would be a fit in the MOS locker room....I always felt there was something off about him....this looks bad for not only the Argo organization but the entire league.   Trying to sweep this kind of incident under the rug is just unacceptable....

Not sure if this was related:

and now this...

Not reflecting good on the league that this is the highest paid player.

There's quite a few more than that. Jeff Hamilton retweeted the article he wrote when Kelly entered the league that runs them down.

Yah - I guess I had missed that when he originally wrote it, wow this guy has some significant issues.  You have to wonder how much Pinball was involved in this...the dude has been incredible for the CFL and this will tarnish his shining star for sure.

John Murphy always seemed a bit shady to me but clearly I have never interacted with him so it just from seeing and reading stuff in the media.

Read the article late last night on TSN and those are some pretty heinous allegations. Not a good look for the reigning MOP or the Argonauts organization.

John Murphy has always been a classless bozo.

There's no doubt Kelly can play QB at a high level, however his character off the field and in the locker room has a lot to be described.    I'm sure the Argos want this to go away however there needs to be a full investigation to fully reveal the nature of these alleged charges against Kelly.

Didn't they get his rights by trading away Johnny Manzeil's rights?  Or is this just my irony generator at word?

How can they make it to the start of the season with him as their franchise player?

Slim pickings behind him...

11    Dukes, Cameron    QB    A    6'1    205    25    Lindsey Wilson College

This is pretty serious. Clemons gonna be put in a tight spot with this one. Image, due process, superstar,  etc. Looking at everything, at this time, my prediction is Kelly doesn't take a snap in the CFL this year.

You could be correct.  With so much $SMS already spent on Kelly (not sure how much is signing/roster bonus), he had to sacrifice a lot of the team.  He may recover some of the $SMS if Kelly is suspended, but who is there to spend it on?  Hand the ball to Dukes and cross your fingers? 

Not a good thing when the franchise that needs the most help attracting fans has this happen.

Very poorly handled, they're in a pickle now.  Offer Dane Evans $300k to come out of retirement.

John Murphy looks just as bad if not worse than CK here imo
