    I agree with World Peace. Its hard to feel sorry for someone who could basically have anything they want, someone who is living the dream that so many of us wish we had, do something like this.

    Condolences to their families....

    What Eric with a K/World Peace said.

    Dude gets paid a big sum of money to play a kid's game for a living. Got to attend college for free thanks to being athletically gifted. Anyone who's been on a team knows there probably are 52 other guys in that locker room who would have done anything to help this guy. He has the advantage of being a part of an organization/business that has councilors for depression or whatever else ails you.

    Very little sympathy for someone who has that amount of resources and takes the coward's way out.

    I've heard funny jokes about aids, cancer, death, etc. You don't decide what's funny, be quiet.

    "Killed his girlfriend and then drove to the stadium.

    Girlfriends mom called the cops saying her daughter was shot, they rushed her to the hospital where she passed. Her mom told cops her boyfriend was a Chiefs player.

    9:30 AM Team meeting, he was outside talking to 2 "coaches" when cops pulled up to the scene and that's when he pulled the trigger."

    KCPD say the player thanked both men before taking his life, and that Pioli and Crennel did not feel threatened. KCPD not revealing identity

    Tragic situation! There is a young infant who will grow up without it's parents. I need to remember that getting upset over the Titans playing like crap isn't worth getting upset about. It's just a game in life, but not life itself.
