Lots of pro athletes suffer from depression during or after their careers. Not that surprising when you think about it.

I keep hearing on the radio that he killed himself in the presence of the head coach and GM. Just awful. Feel bad for the girlfriend's family as well.


I see what you're saying and I even agree with it, but I'm sure there's a side of it that involves rescheduling the game, the flights, the people working on a non-scheduled day, the lost revenue from a moved game, etc.

Again, I can't emphasize enough that I'd have no problem with them canceling the game, but I'm sure a bunch of those factors will be cited as to why they can't or won't.

Where is there anything suggesting he was suffering from any mental illness? He escalated an argument to murder then killed himself instead of going to prison.

Not disagreeing with you, just pointing out that "having it all" doesn't necessarily make you happy. I do not think at all that you have to be insane to commit suicide. Quite the contrary, tbh.

When people commit a very public suicide like this, there is usually a string of events leading up to it that - with 20/20 hindsight - will have lots of people feeling guilty. Don't mean to imply that others bear responsibility for this man's actions...... but this sort of thing never just up and happens out of the blue.

It's so sad, the lives that will be affected by this.

Just read it was Belcher's mom. Not the victim. There was initial confusion because she kept telling the 911 operator it was her daughter.

Ugh, its one thing to witness that no matter what. But to watch your son. Just so sad for them.

I just hope people don't get in a frenzy when the decision comes if they cancel the game or not. There's no right answer
