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

This isn't a situation > game issue. Had Crennel and others not allegedly witnessed the suicide would you still be calling for the game to be postponed?

I don't mean to sound insensitive, but if he can't coach they need to name an interim HC. But by all accounts he is at work right now.

I posted this earlier but some may have missed. The KC Chiefs are at work right now.

Lindaman said Belcher’s mother, who was visiting the couple and their 3-month-old daughter, witnessed the shooting and was being interviewed by police.

As someone else pointed out, logistically it's not that different from flex scheduling. More rushed, but essentially the same procedures.

I would even argue the Sean Taylor thing is worse because he was murdered, this guy just comitted suicide. Flex it to 4:15 is reasonable, rescheduling it for another day is unreasonable

In front of the head coach, as well as others. And the team trainer is his father.

Right, and look at Joe Philbin and Andy Reid, both lost sons and both coaching the very next season. This is the NFL, maybe at our normal crap jobs they would send us home in cases like this but the NFL is a whole different world

What is the point of moving the game back a few hours? Honestly?

Reports I've seen said it was the victim's mother. Could still be some confusion.

Terrible story either way.

Like I said, for me it all depends on what the Chiefs want.

If they wanna play, fine. If they want to postpone, or even cancel, I'm fine with that too.
