Unbelievable. Very saddening whenever this kind of thing happens. Thoughts and prayers to all involved.

I can't comprehend what would drive someone to commit suicide, but I guess if it makes sense to you, you are in danger too...

Reminds me of the Jimi Hendrix classic.

"Hey Jo(van), I heard you shot your ol' lady down"

All it takes is the right circumstances and any person is capable of anything. Pray / hope those circumstances don't happen to you.

This comment is F'd up. Have some damn class!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

**** with your phony class. After numerous threads on this topic the statue of limitations for sympathy has just about run out. They have squeezed this story for every inch, and then some. How many fake condolences can one repeatedly regurgitate on this subject? Time to take a lighter, more truthful approach on the matter.

And a fine F you right back. You are simply classless.

Just grow up and go away loser. You are far too squeamish and sensitive to be showing up on football threads.

If I worked for the Browns, I'd commit suicide, too.

Mangler #5.....good point.......I think that the tendency to do this, must pre-exist inside a person......some people have absolutely horrible lives and things to deal with and never consider this an option.......and I just mean that as a factual statement, not a criticism.
And having said that, I feel bad that this is the only solution that a person feels they have.......prayers and thoughts to the families....this type of death leaves more pain and guilt feelings, than any other type, for the loved ones.

Some of us understand that life is merely the result of a complex chemical reaction propagating through chemical coding in amino acids. Some have a misguided notion that there is some magical power guiding your existence. To be honest the rational ones among us are getting a little fed up with all your bull.

Actually....this is the only thread on this issue. This relates to an unnamed Browns employee, not Javon Belcher.

Yeah, I actually noticed that a few hours later. DOH!! I just didn't realize that it was producing copycat employees among teams. Looks like it's catching on. But hey, if it works for them.
