Respect the Tragedy


I've already seen it.

People upset over the attention Belcher is getting right now as opposed to his victims. Their argument is that he murdered a woman, and left a little girl an orphan. I get it, I do. What he did was awful, just terrible. Usually I'd be on board with this criticism. Definitely not in this case.

If you don't mourn of feel sorry for Jovan I really understand, and I honestly don't blame you. Here's the important part...Do NOT criticize those who do. The people who have grown to care for this man, the ones who fought with and for him. The one's who have shared success and failures with him are grieving right now, they are also victims of this tragedy. Crennel and Pioli, everyone who witnessed it, all his former teammates and fellow players all over the league are grieving right now. They understand what he did was awful, but that just makes it even worse. I've seen a few twitter users (not naming names) harassing at least one chiefs player and people in other areas of the internet. Please, as chiefs fans, we must defend our guys. Again, if you don't want to defend Belcher, perfectly understandable. Just let those who cared about the man grieve in peace.
