The NFL Royally pisses me off

If John Doe, the Wal-Mart cashier, commits suicide in the parking lot does Wal-Mart close the doors for an entire week? No, the store continues operate as normal. What makes NFL coaches & players better than the average person? Playing on Sunday is their job.

If I were commish, I'd move the game to the weekend after the Saints game and move playoffs and super bowl back a week, but that's just me.

Why not just cancel the rest of the season?

The only tragedy is the death of his girlfriend, the way I see it. And that had nothing to do with the football game

Clearly the Chiefs organization thinks the game should be played because if they didn't then it would have been moved back

Someone else gets it. Nothing but fuging greed by all involved. I mean someone blew his fuging head off IN YOUR GOD DAMN PARKING LOT. But hey, that fuging all mighty dollar is king right?

that's fine. he's entitled to his opinion...just like you are.

but the reasoning is a bit different than what silver and you and some of the others are saying. it's not all about the dollar.

lot's of accusations flying around about all this, but what do you and silver and the other critic/cynics know about the situation other than just a lot of assumptions? it was a team decision. crennell....who was right there and knew the kid well....was one of the people making the decision to go ahead and he would be one of those needing counseling as much as anyone. which he and the others will be getting.

it's their decision. it's the way they want to deal with it. it's not up to us to know what's right or what's wrong here. you can either try reading between the lines thinking that you KNOW that it's not good for the team and that they don't want to go ahead with it and that it's all about the money, but consider this...it may not be what you "know" it is. sometimes what people say is actually the truth. the chiefs need to be given a bit more credit here. they know what's good for them and they decided that the best way to go forward with life is to go forward with the game and then continue to grieve later.

As scheduled, Kansas City will host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday after discussions between the league office, Crennel and team captains determined the game should be played.

Two people with knowledge of the decision to play the game as scheduled told USA TODAY Sports that there were no dissenting voices. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt discussed the issue with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL general counsel Jeff Pash, and Goodell in turn talked with players union chief DeMaurice Smith.

After meeting with his entire team at Arrowhead Stadium, Crennel met with the six team captains -- Matt Cassell, Derrick Johnson, Eric Berry, Ryan Lilja, Terrance Copper and Dustin Colquitt. The captains agreed that the game should be played. The team was slated to reconvene on Saturday evening at a local hotel, as it is customary for the team to stay sequestered on the night before games.

Kansas City Mayor Sly James told The Associated Press that he spoke with Pioli, who told the mayor he was concerned about fan reaction. "I think (the Chiefs) think there's an obligation to the people of this city, the fans of the team and the fans of the other team to play the game,'' James said.

The NFL said it has coupled the franchise with a team of grief counselors for support.

Now that I've had more time to actually think about it, I think the right decision was made to have the game be played tomorrow. Especially since the Chiefs decided they wanted to play tomorrow.
