HAMBURG, N.Y. (AP) - The front lawn of a home belonging to Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin was vandalized following Buffalo's season-opening loss to New England.

Hamburg police on Tuesday confirmed the home of a Bills player was vandalized, but declined to release details of their investigation after an obscenity and the score of Monday night's game a 25-24 loss to the Patriots were painted in white on the player's lawn in suburban Buffalo.

McKelvin fumbled a kickoff return with under two minutes to play and the Bills leading 24-19. Three plays later, New England's Tom Brady hit Benjamin Watson for the go-ahead touchdown as the Patriots overcome an 11-point deficit in the final 2:06.

Could be worse. I remember that Colombian goalie that gave up a goal to the US in the World Cup back in the 90s and was killed for his screw up.

I guess them there Soccer folks in Colombia are real fans! :P

You mean the people of Buffalo have nothing better to do than take sports too seriously?


Wow, I'm truly shocked.

He sort of deserved that though, that was about the most selfish play I've ever seen.

Well, the way he tells it, he was backpedaling and wasn't sure of his position, if he would be hit with a safety, etc. So he took off.

With that said, he should have just gone down rather than fighting for extra yardage.

It wasnt a goalie. It as a guy who kicked an own goal against the US.

He was a defender, Andreas Escobar.

He accidently hit the ball in to his own net, trying a sliding clearance.

Was killed by drunk fans in a bar who had lost lots of money wagered on that game.

Sad incident :(

All I have to say to that is BS. God gave the man 2 eyes. All he had to do was take 1 second to look down to see where his feet were. But yes, the #1 thing he should have been thinking of (and really, this doesn't change just because there was little time left and they had the lead) is ball security.

Did you ever see Buffalo 66? It was made by Vincent Gallo - Buffalo native - and how his mom loved the Bills more than him. She blamed him for missing the Bills only Championship in '65 because he was being born. ha ha. The fans in that movie destroyed the kicker's house after they lost the SB and he wanted to kill him cuz he lost money on the game. Yeah, it's only a movie but Vincent should know.

Nobody deserves that.

The way I see it his mistake wasn't taking the ball out, it was fighting for extra yards. Before the kickoff I was thinking that he should take it out if given the opportunity. There was 2:06 on the clock. Taking a knee gives the Pats the 2 minute warning. So taking a knee would give them an extra timeout. When he was first hit the clock was right at 2:00. So the mission was accomplished. He should have went straight to the ground and protected the ball. But instead he fought for extra yards. Like an extra yard or two was really going to matter when they are trying to run out the clock. That was the bonehead part of the play.

IMO he HAD to return the ball. Why? Because if he didn't, the clock wouldn't have run down at all from where it was, which was outside of 2 minutes. That would've given the Pats another timeout, which means (if there was a Buffalo 3 and out) the Pats would've gotten the ball back probably around the 30 or 40 yard line at least with around 1:40 or so on the clock and one timeout in hand. BAD situation there.

The right call was to return the ball, burn the necessary 5 seconds or so that was needed to get in under the 2 minutes, and dive at the feet of the first defender he came in close contact to (around the 20-25 yard line based on my viewing of the play). This is not even debatable IMO.

You're right dude.... take one second to look down while you're concentrating on a ball coming at you while backpedaling.....

Makes a lot of sense.

No one "sort of deserves to have their property vandalized".

It's a form of terrorism.

He is one of the best players on the team. He will continue to make plays for the Bills, unless of course he starts struggling with psychological issues living in Buffalo.

Right, so let me get this straight. My momentum is carrying me back into the endzone. My blockers who were set up for an onsides kick are more than 30 yards ahead of me and you want me to run the return the ball where if I do get tackled it will be on the 10 or 15. Now we are set up with great field position. Please Lord never let Beany be a coach at any level:pray: Dumb play but with these insights follow your dreams and become the next John Madden!

Two things:

1. How could he get tackled at the 10 or 15 when IF YOU WATCH THE PLAY AGAIN, you will see that not one Patriot was close to touching him until the 20 yard line. The same area he would've started if he kneeled it as you are advising. The difference? My method forces NE to use all their timeouts before they get the ball and kills quite a bit of potential clock time for the opposition. That's HUGE.

2. You bring up field position. Even in a worst case scenario where my guy goes down before the 20, what is the difference in field position between that and a touchback? 5 yards? OK there coach. You may have saved a whole 5 freaking yards of field position in some instances (not this one, however, as I proved above), but you just gave the Pats something much more valuable in the process........20-30 seconds of extra time on the clock at a minimum.

Read some of the posts above. I am not even close to alone in this thought process. Why? It is the correct one.

I don't get why people don't get this concept. If he takes the touchback and the Pats force a 3 and out, then then get the ball back around the 40 with about a 1:30 and a timeout. By taking the ball out you kill one of their timeouts because they lose the 2 minute warning, and the field position would be about the same. So the Pats would get the ball back with no timeouts.

His only mistake was fighting for extra yards. That was dumb. Just go to the ground. That's all he had to do.

I can tell you've never been to a game there....if you had, you'd never forget it. Mouthy, rowdy and always looking to throwdown, they make for a miserable experience for anyone going to the game to actually watch it.

If you're the type who thinks supporting your team at an away game means battling the local populace, then the Ralph is tailor made for you. They'll give you all you want and then some.
