Just so sad when things like this happen. There is always another way out.
An unnamed Kansas City Chiefs player has committed suicide at the team facility and the police are on the scence, the team confirmed to ESPN on Saturday morning.
I would think it's especially hard for someone like a football player to reach out when they need help. If ever there was a sport where you are trained to be "invincible" it's football and admiting you need help would be tough.
Dude killed his girlfriend. Concern should be with her family, not the ill-tempered idiot who took one life and ruined many others.
It's just a tragedy for all concerned, very, very sad.
I have tickets to my first Chief's regular season game in like 8 years for tomorrow. Should be interesting. Just a horrible situation.
I hope it didn't come off like that was my primary concern in this. My statement about always being another way out was about the entire situation, from killing the girlfriend to killing himself. There is almost always another way than the killing option.
Understood, Aaron -- I think the lack of mention of the murder in the headline you linked further muddled your point.
Unfortunately, it seems the Chiefs as an organization don't get it because they hung Belcher's jersey in the locker room. Here's a smart take that highlights athlete's problems with violence against women.
The moment of silence for domestic violence victims at Arrowhead Stadium was sadly fitting, because when it comes to acknowledging violence against women, the sports world is often mute.
Ugh. The display by the Chiefs has been...disgusting? It's pathetic, at least to me, that they're glorifying Belcher in any way whatsoever. I hope that I can teach my sons how wrong this is, not just what he did, but also how the Chiefs have handled it. I guess I'll have to use things like this as an opportunity instead of just gnashing my teeth.
