NY Post Article on Jovan Belcher
 
This is the headline on Drudge Report...thought it deserved its own thread. Sorry if repost.

Claims that he shot Kasandra Perkins 9 times....

That he used a different gun to kill his girlfriend than he did to kill himself.

That his mom is taking custody of their daughter...

And that he was drinking heavily, using painkillers, and dealing with head injuries. I don't know what to make about that one.

They're just repeating the Deadspin story that relied on an anonymous friend.

I honestly wonder if they throw in the "Head Injury" thing automatically every time something bad happens to a football player?

from the photo caption:

"Kansas City Chiefs running back Jovan Belcher battled head injuries, drugs and alcohol before he snapped and killed his girlfriend Michele Perkins, friends said."

guess it doesn't take much to write articles or edit for the NYP.

:facepalm:


Do they do any research?

Well her middle name was Michele. I'm assuming that's where they are getting Michele from.

yea must have been the pain killers haha, I love how drugs get blamed in situations like this because pain killers make people spaz out all the time right??

I find it troubling if its true she was trying to wield custody over their daughter and threats of lawyers to go after money. Obviously the reaction was unacceptable but I've seen friends go thru these custody battles over young children and they are ANGRY. I truly wonder what some of them might have been capable of if facing head trauma and narcotics/booze


I never believed he just snapped randomly. That just isn't likely. He seemed too lucid based on the fact he thanked Fat Scott and Crennel prior to the suicide. This wasn't the Colorado movie shooter situation to me

Haha yeah I saw that when I skimmed through it in the store earlier. A newscaster last night also called McCluster "Dexter Mcooster" while reading his tweet. You are lucky if the readers even know where his team plays. Half the people around here ask what team I root for and when I say "Kansas City Chiefs" they say "what's that a new NBA D league team?"

This is the NY Post. This is not journalism. Consider the source before you believe any of this crap.

Anyone who doesn't know who a 50 year NFL franchise is qualifies as a total idiot

People tend to ignore things that don't matter. We don't matter to the rest of the country. Not since Priest Holmes and even that was just for fantasy value. We have a loud stadium, that is our franchise legacy. Even that part doesn't exist to the new generation of NFL fans.

Prison Bitch 12-02-2012 10:35 PM

I'm just responding to someone who might know that the nba has a "d league" but not know who the Chiefs are. I call BS on that or else, the person is a bona fide retard
