Emotions will be running very low, no doubt, and little time to even game plan a little around his backup Brandon Silar starting ... assuming the suicide really if Jovan Belcher as early speculation seems to indicate?

Sounds like maybe some lovers quarrel murder/suicide ....Alas, a tragically permanent solution to a very transitory problem.
Unfortunately as we are discovering with young soldiers and marines, age is not a factor. Repeated brain trauma can lead to some very bad things if not treated correctly or recognized early enough. This is sad story especial when you consider the innocent lives affected by this event.
