Steve McNair Killed

72 posts in this topic

Quote:
Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair reportedly was killed Saturday in a shooting in Nashville.

A medical examiner confirmed to local FOX affiliate WZTV that McNair was found dead after police responded to a shooting in the city.

The circumstances of the shooting weren't immediately clear as Nashville police continue to investigate.

McNair, 36, played 13 seasons, first with the Houston Oilers and then with the Tennessee Titans, which he led to the Super Bowl in 2000. He finished his career with the Baltimore Ravens before retiring in 2006.

He went to the Pro Bowl four times and was named co-MVP in 2003, along with fellow quarterback Peyton Manning.

Wow, what a shame.

He played the game the right way and seemed to enjoy every second of it.

Yeah, I believe that's #6 now. McMahon, Fawcett, Jacko, Billy Mays, Karl Malden, and now McNair all in the last couple of weeks.

The cops there are now saying the woman was his 20 year old girlfriend, but he was married- were they seperated or was he steppin' out? Could that have anything to do with it?

This is just terrible. McNair truly was a class act and will be remembered forever.

Looks like it was a murder/suicide. Police announced McNair was shot several times, and the gf was shot once, and a pistol was near her body. They have said they aren't looking for a suspect.

Sorry to tread on a man's grave but if the reports play out the way they are looking then he was no role model in my book. Just another P.O.S. scum bag who was cheating on his wife and probably was breaking it off with the girl friend who was half his age and she went nuts and offed them both. I would not choose this guy as a role model for any of my grand kids. Fortune, fame, beautiful wife and kids...not enough? Get real dude, you got what was coming to you. Play with fire and you get burned! But I am old school, not a lot of gray in my life, there is black and there is white, there is right and there is wrong.

I'll let things pan out before I decide if he should be missed or dismissed.

Doesn't the good book say something like: Judge not lest ye be judged?

I feel sorry for everyone involved. They each face a different kind of tragedy.

The good book also says an eye for an eye and something about coveting thy neighbors wife, this guy was a married man who was doing illegal things with a girl half his age in a condo that he rented and in a car that he bought her. She was arrested a few days earlier for DUI with him in the car! Not the family man that everybody thought he was.

I did qualify my response in the very beginning with the word "if". I said if the reports pan out the way they are looking....

I can go along with Wade on this but "if" the reports are true you can count me in the catagory of "dismissed" and not "missed".

And yes I have done things wrong but I am fully accountable for each and every one of them. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time said Baretta!

If it's true that he was having an affair, which it sure sounds like, then yes, no role model off the field. I still think it did it right on the field. Either way, he didn't deserve to be gunned down like that. I would say a higher power can judge him on that.

Its only an "affair" if your wife does not know about it. His "mistress" killed him. His wife was fully aware of her excistance. Some people are willing to put up with a lot of things and look away from others. He is not the first to have a mistress, and he will not be the last.

Some, not all, athletes keep them in the town they play in while keeping a wife and family at home. When said player retires, what happens to the "other" gal?

im leaning towards jealousy as the motive here. murder-suicide. Regardlas of his actions he did nothing to warrant being shot and killed. RIP

Insert Michael Jordan and throw in the FACT that Michael Jordan was a "wife" BATTERER along with a womanizing cheater only confirms Windy's point that a lot of Athletes are POS... Michael just took it to whole nother level than most.

For the Record I don't beleive McNair was a POS but I do know MJ was/IS!

Carry On!

    • The sad part of the whole thing, is if they would have somehow found a way to get one in OT to win Game 5, I think they finally got to Allen a bit. The forward D zone coverage was terrible in the game and for much of the series. Those goals that start out with a player against the boards skating in front of the net are a sign of a forward breakdown. The winning goal was on Zucker. It happens. I know we  were pressing a bit, but that killed us.   Now, for the offseason thread! :-) I would be willing to bet Haula isn't back. Ek, I think is going to be forced into the lineup and play a significant role next season. I would actually like to see Hanzal signed. I was a fan of the trade at the time and still am. I think as a 4th line guy he would be a nice addition. Perhaps Fletch can convince Pominville to waive his no trade clause to free him up for the expansion draft. I certainly don't expect Vegas to take him, and he wouldn't want to go there, but this would allow the team to protect one other player. We would have to eat some salary if we are able to ink a deal with another team, but I think that is doable. Russo actually was saying the same kind of thing in a recent interview.
    • I have a water jet pump and I have only needed to rely on it once when the power went out briefly. As floyd said it uses water to move water but it has its limitations. If you need it when the power goes out during a significant rain event its just going to make things worse.   I have a 1/2hp pump in my sump basin with a float on it. The waterjet also has a float on it set just higher than the main pumps float. in the event that the  1/2hp main pump burns out etc the water would raise high enough to hit the waterjet float and turn it on.   the battery back ups work great also but you need to maintain the batteries to make sure they are good to go when you need them and they are fully charged.   pros and cons to each but if possible I would opt to install both if you can.
    • Ihprop! Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.  Just to get a better idea. Did you find it in a parking area or in the field? Mite help who ever lost it remember?
    • See I always use the poppin frogs for walking. I usually dont use the regular frog unless I am throwing it in really thick cover. Over the top of submerged weeds, timber, and docks I always use the poppin frog. For Spros, I actually think the poppin frog walks better than the regular one. 
    • I found some hunting gear yesterday and I figured I'd grab it and try to find the rightful owner before someone else claimed it for themselves. If you or anyone you know lost some hunting gear on public land in Waseca County over the past weekend, let me know.  If you can identify it, I will get it back to you.
    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
