Chiefs player kills girlfriend at home, then himself at facility (updated first post)

368 posts in this topic

They will rally around each other as a team. Not for the GF or the shooter. It's a circle the wagons mentality. And I don't play video games so your call of duty reference falls on def ears.

I agree with you SCP to an extent. The opportunity is very there for an emotional rally. Question is, if this happened to the Panthers this year, would the team rally or fall apart even more? (This is not taking away from the tragedy so spare me the soapbox--not directed at SCP--). The chiefs are as dysfunctional as our team, so not so sure if they play superhuman or they become defeated.

Redskins lost to the bills after Sean Taylor died. You don't automatically turn into Batman because someone you know died.

I'm not implying that.

Have you ever played football or any sports before? Something tragic like this will take a player to a whole new level. If we play tomorrow we will probably be in a world of trouble. You see how Colts players rally behind Chuck Pagano when they found out he had cancer. You can look for the same tomorrow. Trust me.

Yes I have played football, and many other sports. Your example has zero similarity, and it actually validates my point. The chiefs will get crushed tomorrow. They will play but it wont be nearly to their fullest.

Certainly, a teams leadership and mentality will factor into how they handle this as a group. Could go either way on a shitty team like the Chiefs or Panthers.

I know, I'm just saying it's not a sure thing that they'll come out ferocious. They could come out as the Chiefs.

Meh, whatever. I've stated my opinion, right or wrong. I've got to get back to making my buffalo turds for the GA/AL game.

Listening to the Sports radio in KC and even they are saying the Chiefs will be a step slower tomorrow.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
