Chicago Bears’ legend Olin Kreutz isn’t unfamiliar with violence. Being dubbed as one of the toughest guys to ever grace the NFL gridiron comes with a certain level of expectations. But that doesn’t always transfer to a post-football career.

Kreutz joined a new Chicago sports media company, CHGO, early in 2022. He was a member of their Bears coverage team and apparently his time with them has come to an end. But Kreutz isn’t new to backlash from the media. He heavily criticized Bears’ owner George McCaskey and most fans seemed to take his side in the spat.

CHGO released a statement Monday indicating Kreutz physically assaulted a fellow employee. Later, Bears reporter Adam Hoge filed for a restraining order against Olin, and the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Kreutz grabbed Hoge by the throat after a verbal confrontation.

There were multiple rumors circling social media about what really went down between Hoge and Kreutz. Some say Olin stuffed Hoge into a locker following criticism of Bears’ center Sam Mustipher. Others state Olin punched Hoge in the face.

We may never know whatever really happened but the verdict is out: CHGO fired Olin Kreutz. But his time with NBC Sports and guest spots on 670 The Score remain intact… for now.

Olin is a piece of garbage, he belongs in jail – no charges were filed because the people he hurts are too afraid to come forward – Olin hangs out with some pretty shady people. This person attacked a very close friend of mine – he was on the job and working in Olin’s home. They could not do anything after the incident because they were afraid Olin and his buddies would come after him, his family, and the company he works for. Olin has money, Olin is a liar, so he can’t win without being dragged through the mud.This recent incident has brought up major PTSD to my friend I have mentioned (a good hard working family man). He did not deserve this and is affected daily by it.

Because of Olin’s attack, he has not been the same. This person is not aggressive or confrontational – he said something that would be considered a normal conversation that triggered Olin to attack him. ROID RAGE is real. Some bones were crushed in his spine/neck from when he held him up to the wall by his neck. Now he has pain and numbness in his right arm down to his fingers. I felt it necessary to share what a horrible person Olin Kreutz is – he should be shunned by the public for life and doesn’t deserve to work in this city.
