i think the cheifs slowly circle the toilet bowl after this. coaches are going to be frazzeled, guys aren't really going to be as focused as they might if this was just a sudden death of a teammate ala sean taylor or chris henry. they're going to be constantly assaulted from the backs of their minds (as anyone in the situation would be) by the fact that the guy who they emotionally feel pulled to rally around actually murdered the mother of a baby and a toddler in front of her mother.

i don't think that's something you just tune out.


You're joking, right? The Sean Taylor murder was much worse than this.

His teammates still tear up now talking about him.

amazing how many people are willing to qualify his actions by attributing some sort of victimhood to the murderer

So wait? Is the light skinned girl in the pictures the one he shot or is it the dark skinned girl?

But what do you do if you postpone it a day other than Sunday? Refund the 30,000 plus fans that planned on being at the game?


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.

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.


We had a guy die in the office where I work (not a suicide). Happened on a Tuesday. The office closed that night and pretty much for the rest of the week, It was also closed one day the following week so that everyone could attend his funeral. All of this was approved by higher-ups (national company).

I don't get it either.

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.

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

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

I thought about that, believe me. At the same time, I'm not a pro athlete, making millions of dollars. I'm just not. The fruits of my rewards being a loan officer just aren't at that level. We don't live the life these guys live. So it's not exactly apples to apples. I might get a day or two off in the same situation but what would that really help? Only long-term counseling would really ever help. And these guys will be given the best that money can offer in the way of that.

fwiw i've only seen one picture with a dark skinned girl and a bunch of pictures floating around with the light skinned girl. which of course could be attributed to the internet age's style of false information dissemination, but still the imbalance in evidence suggest it's the lighter-skinned one.

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.
