This made me much sadder than these things usually do. Maybe it's that I haven't slept in 2 days, but I got a lump in my throat when I heard it.

RIP

its sad how little wrong a black man has to do to be considered some sort of thug/gangster, etc. dude was from a middle class family and his dad is a police chief. he had one run in with someone who he thought had stolen his property and so many people are quick to think he must have brought it upon himself when he's gunned down in his own house

You might be right, but let's not make this thread all about racism. Too soon imo.

So sad. A healthy 24-year-old should never meet tragedy like this.

Judging from everything I've been hearing (including the linked ESPN article), it seems like Taylor got everything turned around this season, both personally and professionally. I don't know if that makes this more or less sad, but I'm glad that he went out on a high note, and got to experience life for a while as someone who's viewed as a solid citizen.

Rest in peace, Sean. In the next life, may you never want for receivers too terrified to go over the middle (or too dumb to know they shouldn't). Happy hunting.
