The game netter not be cancelled, the dide murdered his gf! This is why players get paid millions of dollars, look at Kalil playing not even 24 hours hafter his wife giving birth or Olsen still playing after what he went through with his kids. Why should one lunatic ruin one of the things I look forward to? If not a case where players and coaches are threatened then no need to cancel

hey buddy NEWFLASH: this isn't about you. get over yourself, multiple lives were negatively and permanantly affected today. so sorry if this inconveniences you for 3 hours of one day.

Have you played competitive sports at a high level? The game is an escape from reality for a player. Let me rephrase that, the game is the reality to a player. I experienced that a bit in college football. Pro athletes are at the extreme level when it comes to blocking out everything but the game. Just saying, don't be surprised if Chiefs players and coaches find a way to use this tragedy as fuel.

Who are they rallying around? You play FOR somebody. Sorry to say but they most likely weren't friends with the GF. Are they gonna rally around a murderer? Have you ever seen someone blow their brains out in front of you? Its not like call of duty.

This is a very, very sad situation. My prayers and thoughts are with the Chiefs and everyone involved.

Happens everyday in this country sadly.

Because he is an NFL player doesn't make it anymore tragic or important.

The game should be played.

Not at all surprised by the morons joking about this. Sitting behind the computer screen will give them a sense of invincibility. Easier to spout off BS in that case.

Although, it is hilarious to see people making those comments on certain sites that link to their twitter/facebook accounts.

A monster doesn't deserve that kind of respect.

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.

As Twitter just reminded me, Kenny McKinley took his own life a couple years ago and the Broncos played six days later. I could sit here for hours listing countless NFL tragedies that have happene for the players to trot out there and do their job. Their escape.

Amazing that anyone thought it would be cancelled.

or they could come out emotionally fatigued and crumble under pressure. it could go either way.

BTW: Anyone else in favor for updating the title?

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.

It happened this season, the receiver for the Ravens. His brother died the day of the game and he came out an played that night and had a monster game.
