Thank you. The guy actually died about three months ago in prison and i am happy because i believe where he is now and in the eyes and presence of his maker he finally must feel sorrow and regret for what he did. Gives me some relief.

I think to make a sweeping generalization that Belcher is now a horrible person is kind of narrow. I've never done anything criminal in my life, but if I go out and hit and kill someone with my car, I don't think that makes me killer.

If I go out decide to mow down people with my car... Then I'll say I'm a bad person.
An accident is an accident. Usually rape is not an accident and i dont think as Panda said that Belcher accudentally shot his girlfriend. So by your own words he is a bad person. The lord forgives everyone. So i hear you about forgiveness but it doesnt make it ok. Also again - teammates remembering Belcher is a far cry from a tribute in hus locker. If i was the father of the girlfriend my God would i be on THE WARPATH about the "honoring" of the man that just shot my daughter.

Sort of calling the kettle black at this point - but Tom Jackson was wrong to say anything about what his team members were saying or doing.
So lets be perfectly clear here. If my best friend kills your brother tomorrow in cold blood. Nobody should judge my best friend but me and i should memorialize the man who shot and killed your brother fir all the world to see? Make no bones about it - that is exactly what happened here. Tom Jackson is so incredibly rite on with his take on this situation that it makes me sick.

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

Having a tribute in his locker does not mean they are saying what he did was right.

It's just a way of remembering the person they knew.

I'm sure there's a lot of conflicted emotions in that locker room.

Again, as many have already said it's a tragedy with a lot of layers. Too many people are trying to make it a black and white issue when it's clearly far from that.

But this is my point too- Tom Jackson has no right to say anything as an outsider, but as the father of the victim - he has every right to speak out against anything his teammates say or do. I think it's a big difference.

But Matty as an organization there has to be enough clarity on the situation to say this guy murdered an innocent person and maybe a tribute will rub prople the wrong way. Especially people who knew her - since apparently only people who know a murderer can judge that particular murderer. Lol. In my mind a murderer is a p.o.s - thought this was mainstream thinking. This was not Sean Taylor - ok - this was the opposite. Victims deserve tributes not killers. And you can call that black and white thinking because it is totally that. Some things are black and white.

I probably would be too angry if I was in that situation to care about right or wrong. I wouldn't say anything but I would be offended if Tom Jackson had anything to say about that situation(scenario you described) if I was in it.

Im just really not understanding you. We have the facts here. The facts are he killed someone and it was no accident. Why do i have to know him to say that what he did was wrong? What layers am i missing? What facts am i missing? The son of sam i believe blamed his dog for making him kill people? The son of sam might have been a cool guy when he was younger? At the end of the day neither of these two people hold human life with any regard. It is a shame that his friends and teammates have to live with that. A real shame. Not nearly as much a shame as what the victims family has to live with. No way. No how.

But it would just be wrong if that happened to your brother is my point. There is no rite! I didnt know anybody in 9-11 but surely u dont have a problem with me saying bin laden was wrong? On a mucch smaller scale of world affairs there is no difference here. I said before one human life is as valuable as 1 million.

No one has the right to dictate how you feel about anything in this life.

I think my basic point is that Tom Jackson has no right to say anything. He doesn't know the killer or the killer's victim. Son of Sam is a totally different situation. Tom Jackson is just talking bullsh*t. I don't remember Tom Jackson doing anything in life to contribute to positivity - but he had the balls to comment on this?

Re: KC Chiefs' Player Commits Murder-Suicide

I think some of you (one of you) are forgetting that many of the information we know have the Chiefs didn't necessarily have on Sunday morning when they decided to hang his jersey in his locker room.

And again, there was no public moment of silence, no vigil for Belcher, nothing like that

I think some of you (one of you) think it's way too easy to spend hours a day with someone, maybe know that he's having problems with his baby mama (but let's not kid ourselves how many pro athletes don't) and then one day you find that he killed himself and his girlfriend/baby mama...and you expect his teammates to just wipe every memory they have of him clean. Absurd.

Incredibly arrogant for some of you (one of you) to think it's not a full spectrum of emotions his teammates are going through-why did he do this? what could I have done? why didn't he come to us first? how well do I know everyone else in this locker room? did the violence of the game make him do this? could this happen to me?-and so on

Well Tom Jackson and one of me , and others in this thread, never said that the teammates dont have a rite to be shocked and saddened by what occured. Also if you read this last couple pages it has morphed into whether i have the rite as an outsider to say what belcher did is wrong? If im arrogant for saying it is than so be it. If the fact of the matter is that the organization and team was not aware if the murder when they hung up his jersey than i personally have no problem with it. However when the information was there at gametime and they did have the facts they should have taken the jersey down.
