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!

    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug.
