So if a Panthers player whose father was on the training staff killed his girlfriend, then drove to Bank of America Stadium and offed himself in front of Rivera and the GM the day before a game, you'd be fine with the NFL making them go on with the game the next day? Even if the players and coaches were dead set against it?

I quote Keyshawn....Come on, man.

really hoping this doesn't invoke a Rivera stoic-face meme.

If what Mr. Scot posted was true, that he shot himself in front of his coach and his father/team trainer, then the Chiefs have every right to not play this game.

They probably weren't going to show up anyway.

I hurt for this orphaned 3 month old.

Be careful, some people might find you sickening.

Don't care. That's their problem. :)

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

his father is not the team trainer.

This type of thing is beyond terrible. Not much to say other than hoping KC gets through this ok.

Crennel and Pioli have to be petrified. I don't know how Romeo will coach but I really feel for the whole organization and its fanbase.

I think you're holding these people to a higher standard than you would yourself. If your co-worker and friend blew his brains out in front of you while talking to you and thanking you and your boss said "wow that was crazy..alright back to work and see you guys at 6am sharp tomorrow" you wouldn't think the same way. People need therapy for stuff like that. They need to be with their families.

No, but I'm sure my boss would give me the next day off. I guarantee you if Romeo is that distraught they will give him tomorrow's game off & use an interim HC.

If you witnessed a fellow employee kill himself would your company shut down for an entire week & tell the customers "tough poo"?

THE NFL IS A JOB.

And mr.scot just stfu quit trying to prove to everyone you know what's right and what's wrong. At the end of the day it's tragic for the girl and the daughter but life goes on and stuff like this happens in life all the time canceling the game isn't going to change anything at all.

Horrible. I feel for the families, the Chiefs, & mostly for that poor child.

Sporting News story says the coaches met him in the parking lot, where he thanked them for the opportunity and then offed himself.

To those who think this game should go on if the Chiefs aren't ready for it to, let's say the Panthers win by 50 something points because there is just nothing in the tank for Kansas City...will you feel better? Will you feel like your team earned something? Because the rest of us think it's silly to put the Chiefs in that position if they're still trying to deal with this. This isn't an every day tragedy. This is a murder/suicide that happened in the same place the game is taking place. The players will have to walk past where it happened on their way in. The fans will probably learn where it happened, and sickos will be posing by it taking pictures.

This is a no brainer. You let Kansas City make the call.
