In tragedy people gravitate to their comfort zone. Being at the stadium is comfort for the fans and players.

I feel for everyone involved in this case but the game has to go on as scheduled. You can't allow the actions of one man to affect anymore people who had nothing to do with the situation.

You say a prayer before the game for the victims, then you kick the ball off and play football. You can't just change the time and think all is well. For example my work schedule is fixed in a way that allows me to attend games and still get my work done.

I'm sure there are others like this as well and it wouldn't be fair to them. If Romeo Crennel doesn't want to coach this game then he should be granted the time off. For everybody else it's business as usual.

if canceling the game is not a realistic option, i'd be in favor of moving it to monday night. even an extra twenty-four hours to cope and get past the shock phase might be nice for the team to have (particularly the coaches.)

If they let this game go on after a situation like this, the NFL is one sick puppy.

All football players talk about is how that locker room is like an extended family and any employer I have ever worked for gives time off for something like this.

Especially when you consider it happened right in front of the GM and head coach. I'm actually considering not watching this game.

I hope this reminds people that football is a G-A-M-E.... sometimes we take it a little too seriously.....IMHO

Some of you guys should go outside and get some fresh air.

Do you really think that would help? I don't, some people are just cold.

Impressed with most of the posters in this thread. Showing class and genuinely being concerned for those involved.

But, as usual, there are the usual few assholes and morons that just ruin it.

Prayers need to go out for all involved. Being close to anyone who is murdered or even being close to someone who commits suicide is damn tough.

The NFL can't cancel a game. It would open the NFL and the team up to massive lawsuits.

Postpone, yes, but in reality, for only acts of God. (Hurricane Sanday would have been a good excuse.)

First the Season Ticket holders would bring a Class action lawsuit again the NFL and Chiefs. Then the bars, restaurants, hotels/motels would sue the NFL and the Chiefs for loss of revenue. For those who might say that the NFL has deep pockets. The NFL would be in a no-win situation.

The game has to be played. An option would be to change the time.
