In KC, it´s no time for a game
Fox Sports, by Jason Whitlock

Original Article

Posted By:St. Pitbull, 12/2/2012 3:56:37 PM

Football is embarrassingly tone deaf. Jovan Belcher, a starting linebacker for the Chiefs, murdered the mother of his child shortly before 8 a.m. Saturday. He hopped in his car, drove to the Kansas City Chiefs practice facility, thanked Romeo Crennel and Scott Pioli — and shot himself in the head in front of his coach and general manager around 8:10 a.m.

Comments:
Unbelievably stupid column.

$$$$$. Owners do not want to miss what they would make today, nor do the players.

All about the dollar.

Agree, OP. Very stupid, and very predictable.

Pre-reading caveat: The subject matter is not what you think.

Seems to me the number of mass shootings and public suicides has skyrocketed since 01/20/2009. Guns are not the underlying problem.

Jason Whitlock uses a tragedy to spout off against the 2nd Amendment. Liberals never let a tragedy go to waste, do they?

ESPN been honoring the killer all day.

At least the moment of silence before the game was for victims of domestic violence.

That said. There should have been NO GAME at all.

I couldn´t believe it when I heard a sports reporter comment at noon today that many of the fans were hoping that KC would hold a moment of silence in "honor" of this homicidal/suicidal football play.

OK, predictably it turned into an anti-gun rant. I just want to know why people think the game should not have happened. Football is a business, like any other. If I committed murder-suicide my large company would not shutdown. Even my 13 member office would not shutdown. In point of fact, an employee of another team also committed suicide Saturday and no one has suggested that team not play.

#7, this qualifies as a family anhilator and for the most part, the majority are non-black. The game should have been postponed and each team granted a bye week. Roger Goodell should have done his duty as commissioner and the team owners should have agreed. But using #7 logic, it must be a white thing.

The reality is that this is a very sad case. The guy was obvioulsy off his rocker. The NFL highlights the ills players bring into the game. Greed, stupidity, uncontrollable urge to reproduce at every turn, drug abuse, irresponsibility, marriage means nothing, concusions and subsequent health problems associated with the game, etc.

Why does this have to be a race thing? It is as stupid as blaming guns for what happened. Whenever I hear that, I tell people he would have stabbed her to death then slice his own throat.... Pesky knives.

No it should not have been cancelled. Major league football is a business and many many small businesses support every game. If the teams had received bye´s, that would have done nothing for all of the smaller businesses who would have lost a fortune. Take the emotion out of it just like we would for any other business.

I heard on the news that they had a "moment of silence" at Arrowhead Stadium.

I was screaming at the TV that this P-O-S murdered someone, and then committed suicide, both times in front of people.

I don´t know where poster #5 gets their information, but I read this article two times, and do not see any reference to the "moment" being directed to victims of domestic violence.

JFK was assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963. The NFL went ahead with its sunday scheduled games just two days later.
As for Jason Whitlock - Jason, would you have been happy had he killed himself and his girlfriend with a knife? A car?
and does anyone get married any more? (I understand why someone on welfare might not, since it might interfere with their benefits, but a multimillion dollar salaried NFL player, who doesn´t get married, but produces a baby? Odd.)

Do no harm: Who should bear the costs
of retired NFL players’ medical bills?
Washington Post, by Sally Jenkins and Rick Maese    Original Article

After 24 knee operations, the National Football League’s former Man of the Year leans heavily on a crutch. When Reggie Williams pulls up his pants leg, what’s underneath looks like the trimmings from a butcher shop. His right leg is so ravaged that it’s three inches shorter than his left. Worse, it’s uninsured. Once, Williams was the NFL’s high ideal. From 1976 to 1989 he was a spring-legged linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals who set franchise records and played in two Super Bowls. Off the field, he was a civic-minded Dartmouth graduate who won humanitarian awards and served as a city councilman while he was still playing. He was so loyal to the game that he was a pallbearer at legendary team founder Paul Brown’s funeral.

Stephen Hawking accused of hypocrisy
over Israel conference boycott

Stephen Hawking´s decision to boycott an Israeli conference in protest at the state´s 46-year occupation of Palestine was derided as hypocritical by some, who pointed out that the celebrated scientist and author uses Israeli technology in the computer equipment that allows him to function. Hawking, 71, has suffered from motor neurone disease for the past 50 years, and relies on a computer-based system to communicate. According to Shurat HaDin, an Israel law centre which represents victims of terrorism, the equipment has been provided by the hi-tech firm, Intel, since 1997.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
