The point in all this is it's just another person in the world. As someone mentioned earlier, this kind of stuff happens every day. I think people just like to feign impact of these events because it helps them feel like they're a part of the incident and that creates a warm drama in their life.

For a great example of this, look at Chris Henry. Before he made a stupid decision and got himself killed, everyone mocked him as a terrible human being and waste of opportunity. After he died, everyone feigned sadness and support and blah blah blah.

I think it's terrible that the guy did this. I think these stories are terrible every time I read them. That said, the level of sensitivity people bring to these threads makes me roll my eyes so often I think they might actually get stuck that way. So... don't count yourself as the only one that laughed at his post. I'm quite a fan of "too soon?" jokes. The only post I had an issue with was his second one about "next one up" or whatever because I guess I didn't really get it. I assume Romeo made the statement recently or something.
Great post.

god, you're that creepy uncle no one likes, aren't you?

I like how everyone that responds like a horrible moron automatically assumes everyone else is equally horrible, only they are the only ones brave enough to say it. you guys sure are teaching us.

Think about it this way...the guy who killed himself in front of them wasn't their friend anymore...he was a cold blooded murderer.

Basically no different than if he had barricaded himself in one of the offices and SWAT took him out...****er deserved to die and I'm sure even Romeo knows it.

The shooting is horrible. The posters who jest about the horrible shooting are annoying.

Amazing how we had people praising Ayers for playing the day his father died, but now want the NFL to cancel a game because a murderer killed himself.

If you seriously mourn the death of every good-hearted person who dies too young, you'd never have time for anything else. Nobody is really all that torn up.

I know it's 12 pages in, but this is just a terrible tragedy all around. I wish the best for the family of his girlfriend and also those taking on the responsibility of taking care of the baby.

As for the Chiefs organization, what a terrible thing to not only happen but to happen in front of them at their facility, truly my best wishes to all of them.

To all the classless ****s on here, you won't see this with your bans but man you guys are POSs. Happy to see the mods were so quick to ban hammer these fools, but disappointed to see that they had to do so at a time like this.

Honestly if they were playing Denver tomorrow, I would want them to cancel the game.

I'm glad you said what you did, because I didn't want to. Yes, it's terrible, but terrible stuff happens every day. Unless you knew any of these people personally, I assume the people "affected" by this are saying it just because it's the right thing to say. But that's still better than making light of it, I suppose

I think many of us were the same way. Life does go on. I don't believe it's a matter of feigning sorrow. For me it relating to it as far as being a mother. I do feel sorry regarding the girlfriend, the little girl, and that mother. It's also a matter of confusion, not understanding someone doing such a heinous act and just saying Wow, several times. No, I don't believe it's necessary to post anything sensitive, especially if you aren't feeling it but while I too love "too soon" jokes, it was too soon and insensitive to those that did truly feel that way.

Who is man to say when death should occur? I'm born for reasons I ultimately don't understand, and I die for reasons I ultimately don't understand. Innumerable dynamics throughout the cosmos are at work that could end me in a moment--superficially, it could appear to an observer to be an elephant stampede, a poisonous chicken-wing, or a chemical imbalance in some individual's brain that does me in. Is it all simple chance? Well then what's the point in fretting about it? My life is a roulette game. Is it ordained? Again, what's the point in fretting about it? There would be forces beyond my grasp that make it all coherent in the end. All attempts at grief and justice are made on shaky grounds, but they're the best we've got. People recognize that on different levels, and the manifestation of that recognition can look like a lot of things, including ill-timed humor on a message board. Maybe it's a way to deal with their perceived senseless nature of everything.

To be honest, I know this is one of those situations where I'll start being a dick just to push back against people trying to claim that they're sincerely touched by the situation so I know I have to tread carefully to avoid going too far (not necessarily in terms of being banned but in terms of just being sensible and objective).

That all said, I particularly think people are just too reactive and wanting to cast other people as the insensitive, "classless", jerk when these football players die and people make general comments. Nobody here probably even knew the guys name before this incident, how damning could their statements really be? From the three bannings I saw, I saw 2 people going out of their way to make a shock statement (basically trolling), and one person making jokes. Then you had like 97 people coming in acting like it was the next 9/11.

9/11 shook me to my core. This incident slightly affected me more than realizing a few minutes ago that I downloaded the wrong episode of a show I wanted to watch. In today's world, there's just too many instances of this or much worse. Hell, we follow things like the Casey Anthony trial just for entertainment's sake. I have no evidence to say anyone's faking their concern here and, truly, I have no incentive to - but for the sake of arguing, I'm sticking to my opinion that I don't believe anyone really gave a damn aside from the love of drama.

I think I see what you mean. It's as tho people love when other people act like a-holes just so they can be holy rollers about people acting like a-holes. I would prefer there to be no a-holes, even if that means sacrificing my self-congratulations for not acting like an a-hole. But that would also mean I don't go around looking for a-holeness in every situation I come across, especially in a medium as silly as the Mane. I'm sure many are emotionally shaken on some level. I know I am after seeing the picture of that pretty lady proudly holding her baby girl. But I don't presume everyone feels the same way I do, or grieves the same way I do, and I don't wanna exploit emotions to score feel-good points. It's sad, and someone posting disrespectful stuff online doesn't change it.

a-hole. Had to say it one last time.

So just for the sake of the argument..... i don't feel bad for him... but how do you know it wasn't a justified murder? Maybe he caught her trying to do harm to the kid or something...... no one will ever know the whole truth.
