    I wonder if the NFL should seriously look into mental evaluations, as well as brain scans. To see if people who are naturally agressive tend to play pro football or if the game itself takes a toll on there mental physche?

    South Bend is a toilet. That city is going down the sewer. That known, why is this a story? Shots are fired in South Bend all the time. Wasn’t that where Dave Duerson beat up his wife? Wasn’t that where Charlie Weis ate nearly all the hamburger in the city?

    I can’t believe some of the comments on this board. You people should seek help, immediately. Things that are not funny…ARE NOT FUNNY for a reason.

    Remember that when tragedy strikes your family. Would you like to hear that people were joking about it–while it was happening.

    Sick, people. You should be ashamed.

    I agree with LOTSOK, some people just need to grow up
