I clicked on the link and it was removed, I’m thinking this story might be bogus. There were rumors about Britney Spears and George Clooney being dead too

So is Michael Jackson. And Billy Mays. And Farrah Fawcett. And Mollie Sugden - who played Mrs. Sclocombe in the BritCom “Are you being Served”...

I think it is bogus, too—ESPN would have jumped all over this if the news was true.

Sorry to hear about Steve NcNair.

The way the name was spelled in the header threw me off

A Murder / Suicide does not bode well.

Hopefully it's not true

Oh, well...guess you won't be 'feeling' anything then.

Opening restaurants is a good way to go broke in a hurry if you don’t know what you are doing and know how to keep employees from stealing you blind.

Sorry, but McNair is not a child-molesting rock star, a wife-murderer, an unqualified candidate for President, or a rapist who’s bitten off someone’s ear.

Don't be fast on the wife-murderer part, assuming he's married.

"The incident happened at 2nd South & Lea Ave, per Channel 5."

For us non-Nashvillians, is that an urban, business or residential area?

It is right downtown in what appears to be a very upscale condo.

BNO just confirmed it seconds ago. Very sad. I loved watching AirMcNair play. One of the best passers of the football in the history of the game.

Sad news, he was a great quarterback.

I always feel saddened to see the passing of another human being. I hope his family and the other victim’s family find the comfort they need in this trying and difficult time.
