    I’m not saying this as an excuse. I would just like to know, though, how many concussions this guy has had. I know he was young but they start some of these players very young.

    I guess the Chiefs didn’t bend over far enough to save this one…I do feel bad about the woman though.

    Well, the important thing here is that his second amendment rights were protected all the way to the end.

    Ok so let’s take a look at the truth as it slowly seeps out. According to a previous article UMaine failed to turn over incidents of domestic violence to the police. From this article you can plainly read between the lines and see the Chief’s staff was ” dealing with it internally” as well. Well HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO if he wasn’t a football star, he’d have had at least one domestic violence charge by now. Likely dozens from the sounds of it. And, that would make him unable to legally have the guns he used to kill his girl friend and himself. So, once again ” special treatment” for athletes by both UMaine and the Chiefs has caused two deaths. No I’m not stupid enough to believe that he wouldn’t still have had a gun illegally. I’m saying… if he had been charged, If the Chiefs knowing there was problems ( by their own admission) the first thing they should have done is removed all guns from the house until the interventions worked or they split ways. Hope both UMaine staff and Chief’s staff sleep well knowing their cover ups cost a woman her life.

      I think it is a mistake to make heros of these athletes as we do in this society. Is that why the incidents at the Univ of Maine were kind of swept under the rug? Would the same action, or rather non action, have been taken for some student who did the same things but was not a winning athlete?!

    How many times this year have regular non-famous men blown their wife/girlfriend away, then committed suicide?

    How many times where those regular non-famous men on the front page of every newspaper/site for days on end?

    Thats what I thought.

    He was a great player and a “role model” for many younger men. But the rumored proposal to nominate him for the UME Sports Hall of Fame is really too much–and much too soon. I hope that it’s just a false rumor.
