That's just so bizarre. There are some decisions and things in life that we can do that can't be undone.

Outside the lines is thrilled right now. Head injuries in football will be the only topic this week. Sad for the family.

Agreed...but without knowing the details...it's probably more of a temper issue.

Default Chiefs player commits suicide at team practice facility

Not sure which player it is. It happened early Saturday Morning at the team practice facility. This seems to be connected to an off-site shooting involving the player's girlfriend. Anyway, my deepest sympathies go out to the Kansas City Chiefs and the player's family.

Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher dead in apparent*murder-suicide

Posted by Michael David Smith on December 1, 2012, 11:47 AM EST

AP
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and a woman believed to be his girlfriend are dead, after Belcher apparently shot and killed her, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and shot and killed himself.

A statement released by the Chiefs said only, “We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.” But PFT has confirmed with multiple sources that it was, in fact, Belcher who was involved in the incident.

Belcher apparently shot his girlfriend at around 8 a.m. on Saturday and then committed suicide a short time later.

Players on the Chiefs are gathering at Arrowhead Stadium today and being told of the situation. The Chiefs are scheduled to host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium. The Panthers’ team flight has not yet left for Kansas City, and the NFL has not yet said whether the game will go on as scheduled.

The 25-year-old Belcher entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maine and quickly made an impact, becoming a starter during his rookie season. Belcher’s off-field life had remained relatively quiet, and the news of this morning is stunning to the NFL world.

This is just tragic news.

Horrible horrible news, im sure there is alot of guessing of what his intentions were, but the coaches may have saved anothers life. First thing that came to my mind was he caught gf cheating and went to chief facility to possibly confront someone else and the coaches stopped and confronted him outside facility before he could enter. Who knows what goes through someone head when something tragic like this happens, my thoughts and prayers goes out to the families of the deceased

Been reported pretty well everywhere except the local media and the mothership, but was Jovan Belcher, starting ILB. Shot his girlfriend, drove to the team facility and shot himself. Some of the other players noticed he had a gun and got the coaching staff involved. Called police and then Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennell (and presumably other members of the staff) tried to talk to him. Guess he thanked them for everything and pulled the trigger.
Live in KC, obviously a Bengals fan, never have rooted for the Chiefs one day of my life. But Belcher was a good player, one I could enjoy watching despite my dislike of the Chiefs. Who knows if brain issues, concussions, whatever are the cause. Worst part of it all, tying to the girlfriend is a 3 month old daughter that has been left behind now. Have heard that the girlfriend's mom was witness to her daughter being shot too. All rumor at this point. But to leave a 3 month old child.....damn.

Wtf does that have to do with anything. I am sure the first thing on people's minds after a tragic incident like this is that it will stop a QB controversy.

I love some of the holier than thou attitudes in here, but these are tame to other comments I've read elsewhere.

Clearly, this guy was suffering from some sort of severe mental illness. No history of violence, young guy in great shape with a promising career, new born baby, etc...

Nobody with that kind of past just decides one morning to murder his girlfriend and mother of his newborn child, then kill himself in front of his GM and HC without something being really messed up. Supposedly he told them, "Thanks for everything." before pulling the trigger.

You don't have to feel sorry for the man, but jeez, cut it with the insults already.

Wow. This is the craziest thing to happen in the NFL since OJ Simpson. I really feel for the child. Prayers to both families. Can't imagine what's going through Romeo and Pioli's minds having seen that.

If Dalton averages over 30 passes per game in 2014, I win. If he averages less than 30, you win. Loser can't post in any Dalton threads for 1 year. You game?

I've seen it happen, it wasn't someone I knew even. I cannot imagine it being someone you know as close as a coach and player can be sometimes.

Apparently, he had thanked the coach and GM for the opportunity they had given him before committing suicide in front of them.

This really is a tragic story.

Thoughts and prayers to the family, friends, coaches, and teammates.

But ABOVE all, prayers for the 3 month old whom will grow up without either parent

Thank God, if her mother was a witness, he didn't shoot her as well. This is just terrible. KC Chiefs is not one of the teams I follow, but this is an absolute tragedy, regardless of who it happened to. He must have had some signs and symptoms of mental illness or stress, it is just inconceivable (to me) that someone wakes up on a Saturday morning and decides to kill the mother of his child, then drive to his employer and shoot himself in the head in front of his "boss". I wonder if he's had any history of concussions or other head injuries, recently or in the past?

How many games will Goodell suspend him for this? I doubt he just gets a fine.

Appears to be the case, the gf's mother was visiting and was there to see it, and was the one that called the authorities. Very surreal situation, and the last thing you expect to see scrolling on the bottom of every local station in town when you wake up.
Top it off, Panthers were told to fly in as scheduled, they are in the air right now, I believe. Game to go on as planned.

Feel sorry for the victim and her family. The story is about a high profile athlete who killed himself...he obviously had problems....but he made a major mistake being a murderer 1st.

Truly tragic. If you look at that organizations history they've been cursed on and off the field. Remember Derrick Thomas? Joe Delaney?
