Off-Topic: The Sean Taylor Tragedy is Getting Ugly

Sean Taylor was a great football player and his death is a tragedy to anyone who knows football or has children (thats a lot of Americans). Here is a guy who apparently choose to turn his life around but whether it be fate or his own doing, its still a tragedy. That is the rub with the current media coverage. We still do not know for sure whether this was a random incident or calculated but a lot of people have rushed to judgement. I admit myself to buying into the storyline being dished out by the Mike Wilbons of the world.

If you want good, objective coverage of the Sean Taylor story then please check out this site, Hogs Haven . Will Allensworth has done exceptional research and presents all the facts.

Let us not fall into the trap of assuming that Sean Taylor created his own demise until we know the facts. For now lets reflect on his impact on the game of football and more improtantly, the suffering that his family must be going through.
