Default Suicide attempt starts now with Faiders fans

Looks like the pain of a crappy 11 year stretch has taken its toll on some Chokeland Faiders' fan yesterday.

Who knows what was going through her head but that game in the last minute had to be the tipping point. We always state that Raiders' fans take the game too serious because nothing is going on in their personal lives.

I think the sad thing is the guy trying to save her might be worse off then her. Details were not there but she could still be suicidal a year from now and he is in a wheelchair.

Okay, a suicidal person has their reasons, obviously. That's probably a debate for another thread.

What is NOT debatable is involving someone else in the process. Even if this guy hadn't intervened, she's doing it in front of a lot of other people - people who are going to be scarred by that visual for the rest of their lives. That's the kind of thing that causes PTSD, in the right kind of person. That's just BS.

Awhile back, some dumbass jumped off the balcony at the SLC library, and landed in the lobby area, while busloads of elementary students were entering and exiting, coming to and leaving from field trips. That's just selfish, narcissistic douchebaggery.

Made me laugh, but definitely in poor taste. You're all going to hell.

Be sure to say hi to Al Davis when you get there.

actually zero. As a Raider fan, she also failed at her attempt.


Now that is in poor taste.

That's sad. Good in that Marine to break the fall. I am assuming other more detailed and less ambiguous news sources reported details on the injury he sustained? That article read like my 5 year old wrote it.

Reading the comments I found one gem so far:
"That's why I bubble wrap everything"

Stockton resident Donnie Navidad, 61, left, laughs with former Oakland Raider Willie Brown, Monday, Nov. 25, 2013, in Stockton, Calif., as he talks about saving a young woman's life after a Raiders NFL football game at the Coliseum. Navidad said when he saw a woman jumping from the upper deck at the Oakland Raiders' stadium on Sunday, his military instincts immediately kicked in as he lunged forward trying to catch her.

Well, he did get to hang out with Willie Brown. He may be a stinkin' Raider, but he was a legend. I guess that's OK...

I actually heard once of a guy in Denver that committed suicide I think it was after the Broncos lost Super Bowl XII. Perhaps this person was similar and the one activity they got enjoyment in life from was the last straw. I can't understand how people can do that, but this world is a pretty screwed up place.

I'd rather hope she fell down rather than trying to hurt herself.

Are Chargers fans next? L0L.

Bengals at Chargers will be first blackout of NFL season

By John Breech | CBSSports.com

Apparently Charger fans aren't excited about seeing Andy Dalton and the Bengals again. (USATSI)
It took 13 weeks, but it finally happened: an NFL game is going to be blacked out on local television.

The Chargers announced on Thursday that their Week 13 game against the Bengals will not be televised live in Southern California.

Under the NFL's blackout policy, a team must sellout a game within 72 hours of kickoff or the game can't be shown on local television. If a team is close to selling a game out, it can request a 24-hour extension to sell the remaining tickets. However, the Chargers didn't request an extension because there were over 5,300 tickets left for Sunday's game against the 7-4 Bengals.

Team owners have the option of buying unsold tickets at 34 cents on the dollar, an option the Chargers owners apparently declined to exercise.

Apparently the Bengals aren't a big road draw. The first NFL blackout of the season almost came in October in Buffalo when the Bills were hosting Cincinnati in Week 6.

The Bills offered fans a $15 discount on tickets and eventually sold out the game.

Through Week 12, all 176 NFL games played this season had been shown on local television, marking the first time since the blackout rule started in 1973 that all games were shown on local TV through the first 12 weeks of the season.

The last NFL blackout happened in Week 17 of 2012 when the Bills regular season finale against the Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium was blacked out. This is the second year in a row that the Bengals have been blacked out in San Diego. The Bengals-Chargers game in Week 13 of 2012 was also blacked out.
