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

368 posts in this topic

um well that was my point. this isn't a sean taylor type of murder that rallies the troops in an emotional way. this scenario is much more conflicted, and not as likely to inspire heightened play because of the nature of the situation.

The Sean Taylor murder didn't rally the troops emotionally, it left them devastated.

I remember people making all kinds of poo up about Rihanna giving Chris Brown hiv or cheating or other stuff that turned out to be bullshit, just because they refuse to acknowledge that women can actually be victimized without it being their fault.

These people would fit in very well in Pakistan.

Rumor is that he found out the baby wasn't his.

Of course that's "the rumor."

and this matters, why exactly? this doesn't justify anything or even remotely make him the victim here.

Pretty much.

Take the mature approach and kick her out of the house. Don't kill her and yourself.

The fact that this happened in front of multiple team personnel at the Chiefs facility could cause this game to be cancelled IMO. It's not the same as what happened to Torrey Smith.

game is on

LMAO @ any idiot who says Sean Taylor's death was worse than this. Why? Because the athlete was the victim? He was shot by punks during a robbery. Tragic? Yes, extremely.

Was it worse than a guy shooting his gf multiple times, killing her, in front of her mother & child, then commiting suicide in front of his co-workers & friends? Here's a hint; No.

The Sean Taylor murder didn't rally the troops emotionally, it left them devastated.

they were devastated but used it as emotional fuel.

my point is this: this guy's murder/suicide cannot be compared to prior cases of NFL player deaths because of the complexities attached to it that'll cause conflict in the minds of players who'd otherwise be using a simple tragic death of a teammate as fuel.

you're trying to extrapolate something i never said.

No different from when the NFL does Flex Scheduling and cherry-picks the game of the week from the normal 1p or 4p timeslot into primetime (or a 1p game into 4p for a more national audience, beginning in 2014). Moving gametimes is nothing new, and totally inconveniences anybody's flight/hotel plans.

This would be no different.

If they just flex it to 4:15 thats finem but frankly I think postponing or cancelling is a bit of a overreaction. Is this a weather or terrorist threat that can harm the fans or players on the field? No. Its a isolated incident and the game should go on

Game needs moved to later start time I would even suggest 7:00. That would be a good idea for everyone involved.

You guys are reading into what the one guy said. He just said the rumor is it wasn't his kid. He wasn't saying that justifies what he did. Just defining what happened, as opposed to "he just lost his mind and decided to kill himself and his girlfriend for no reason".
