I know this was tragic. But does it bother anyone else that this guy is getting all sorts of commemorations, and everyone is talking about how great he was, and how he will be missed? They did a moment of silence for him at the game yesterday, and they're acting like he was a war hero. Have they forgoten HE MURDERED HIS GIRLFRIEND!!! how would that make you feel if you were her family? IDK if this even belongs here, but its just been bugging me a little bit.
...and left their 3 month old daughter an orphan. I agree.
Every comment I've seen from anyone associated with the Chiefs has mentioned that the entire situation is a tragedy and that their thoughts and prayers go out to EVERYONE involved.
Completely agree. I have thought the same thing. If this guy wasn't an NFL player everyone would be talking about what a monster he was.
I agree with you, but I think it is just one of those situations that there is no good way to handle. They did what they thought they should do. I think it is partly because it wasn't expected out of this guy.Of course, I am not really sure how you can expect it from anyone but I don't think it was surprising when the Panthers WR Rae Carruth shot his girlfriend because he was a loose cannon.
I know that this doesnt compare in scale to the Columbine shootings, but I dont see anyone doing memorial services and moments of silence for the shooters in that case. It may be a bad comparision but its the only thing off the top of my head that compares.
Fwiw the moment of silence in KC was not for him. It was for victims of domestic violence. My understanding is they didn't even mention him by name.
The moment of silence was as much, or more, fir his GF, daughter etc as it was for him
Otherwise i agree with you 100%
Oh, well thats good. Ive just seen too many articles this morning talking about what a "stand up" guy he was. and thats been bugging me.
Not true at all. They held a moment of silence for victims of deomestic violence before the game yesterday. The Chiefs organization did not memorialize him and have said they will not honor him by wearing anything that memorializes him on their uniform. They aren't recognizing him as any hero. They only recognized the GF.
