He was shot in THE HEAD. From point-blank range. TWICE. And then they did an autopsy on him.

You don't wanna see the body. I assure you.

Wow, is our people thinking? I mean, really?

I grew up like 20 mins from Steve and have followed his career from high school to college to the pros. I even saw him play a few times at all three levels of competition. He was one of the local country boys who somehow made good but never seemed to forget where he came from. He'll be missed.

On the outside, I'm cracking jokes about crazy biatches and the last thing going through McNair's mind being the bullet, but I'd be lying if I said it's not groan-inducing to see his life end like it did.

/Hardly ever heard a negative word about the guy.
//Short of the one thing that led to his ass being killed.
///Almost certain that he left behind more than just his 4 sons with Mechelle.

Smith described herself as a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, "but I enjoyed that Air McNair." She said the reality of McNair's death finally kicked in yesterday when she saw his obituary in the newspaper, "but still I'd prefer to view the body to have some closure."
get over yourself you stupid twat. what the hell do you need closure for?

I remember a similar uproar, albeit much much smaller, several years ago in a bar in town. One of the locals was riding his Harley without a helmet and did a deer-dodge into a tree, face first. Several drunken morons were lamenting the fact that it was BS they couldn't see their friend one more time, even after being told by several people that his head was completely destroyed...

When you were league MVP and the face of a franchise for years your playing career could be over for 100 years and people would still be recognised as a football player.

One of my coworkers is such a big McNair fan, he held a moment of silence with his family at his house I guess. Some sad shiat, McNair didn't really deserve this.

I don't think I've ever simultaneously laughed my ass off and hated myself before, but you have made that happen. Bravo, good sir.

From TFA:

People were disappointed that McNair's casket was closed during the visitation.
"I wanted to view him - I didn't want to view a casket. I think everybody expected to see him," said Jackie Smith, who stopped by before going to work at the U.S. Postal Service.

Smith described herself as a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, "but I enjoyed that Air McNair." She said the reality of McNair's death finally kicked in yesterday when she saw his obituary in the newspaper, "but still I'd prefer to view the body to have some closure."


What farking gall. What the fark is with the sense of entitlement with people? WHY DO YOU NEED CLOSURE FOR THE DEATH OF A MAN YOU SAW ON TV???? This is farking asinine.
 
2009-07-09 11:32:30 PM  
Everybody keeps saying to remember him for all the good he did...I'm sure he left his family well off but to have the situation work out this way has to be just great for his wife and kids.

/what a swell guy
//wonder what his wife has to hide about the "great" guy

To hell with his wife and kids! This guy was an NFL MVP! BOW YOUR HEAD when you think of him....think of him farking his girlfriend and getting killed, rather than being there for his kids.

2009-07-10 12:16:16 AM  
Just because someone is shot in the head doesn't mean they can't have an open casket. You would be amazed what a competent mortician can do.

I had a friend in high school who decided to end it with a shotgun to his head. He had an open casket funeral and he looked like any other dead person I've had the dis-pleasure of seeing. I'm sure there was a lot of "filler" used, but with all the makeup they use, you couldn't tell what was flash and bone and what was spackle.

What was McNairs favorite sitcom?

What was McNairs favorite pop music song?

Hit Me With Your Best Shot.


OK I'm done. RIP Air McNair.

I have a buddy who worked with Steve McNair on _one_ tv commercial years ago, they hit if off and McNair continued to call him every year afterward just to shoot the breeze and keep it touch. My friend said McNair was always cordial and familiar, i.e., inquiring about his family, noting what they last talked about, etc., and always ended the conversation by saying, "Hey, if we don't see each other until then, I'll talk to you next year". C'mon, whataguy, no lie.

/people are complex, sometimes it's hard to analyze your own actions and behaviors let alone those of others - judgement, the refuge of the fearful, no? Yep, watch Fox, a network that's made a profit from that distorted POV.
//RIP Steve, truly.

I have no sympathy for assholes who take marriage vows lightly. Here's my post from another McNair thread:

Bottom line is if you are married then you have made certain promises and commitments, not the least of which is being faithful. Should he have been killed? Of course not, but the fact remains that had he not been farking someone besides his wife and mother of his children he would still be alive and his kids would still have their father.

I feel for his family who is now without a husband and father because he cheated on all of them.

For what it's worth I voted for Obama.

I don't believe in Hell.
