Chiefs fans think the game should be cancelled. Some of you might have a different opinion if a panthers player did this.

Simply amazed at how some would make a joke about this. Obviously, they have never had to help a family pick up the pieces after their lives were changed by a tragic event.

Ok thats different then seeing someone blowing their brains out right in front of you. And you have time to dwell on it. Its easy to shake the emotion immediately following the event because you havent had time to think about it. But i bet if you went into the locker room after that game, those players would be silent.

Have you played competitive sports at a high level? The game is an escape from reality for a player. Let me rephrase that, the game is the reality to a player. I experienced that a bit in college football. Pro athletes are at the extreme level when it comes to blocking out everything but the game. Just saying, don't be surprised if Chiefs players and coaches find a way to use this tragedy as fuel.

The game netter not be cancelled, the dide murdered his gf! This is why players get paid millions of dollars, look at Kalil playing not even 24 hours hafter his wife giving birth or Olsen still playing after what he went through with his kids. Why should one lunatic ruin one of the things I look forward to? If not a case where players and coaches are threatened then no need to cancel

hey buddy NEWFLASH: this isn't about you. get over yourself, multiple lives were negatively and permanantly affected today. so sorry if this inconveniences you for 3 hours of one day.

Who are they rallying around? You play FOR somebody. Sorry to say but they most likely weren't friends with the GF. Are they gonna rally around a murderer? Have you ever seen someone blow their brains out in front of you? Its not like call of duty.
