    Ugh. Well that both sucks for the football implications (whether it's true or not) and definitely the real-world ones if it's true.

    I'm sure his teammates and coaches will rally around and support him during this "tough" time. Hang in there Crabtree!

    FWIW:
    -It shouldn't prevent him from playing this week, or for that matter in the Super Bowl in all likelihood.
    -Innocent until proven guilty.
    -If proven guilty, I hope that he doesn't receive any special treatment for being a football star.

    Agreed on all accounts. I just know this will be spun into Crabtree being the victim. Which may be the case. But I doubt it. :p

    Edit: my favorite comment from that article.

    In the criminal and justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous.

    There were a couple Chiefs players who had said on the day of that they were really sorry for Jovan Belcher, but that **** got shut down fast. I understand mourning someone you knew as a friend, but when they're a proven murderer it's a little different.

    BTW, the autopsy results came back on Belcher and showed he had a BAC of .17 (at 8am). No sign of traumatic brain injury. As I said at the time, unfortunately this sounds like a tragically common case of alcoholism and domestic arguments escalating to a horrible degree.

    Yeah from what I read he was partying all night.
    He probably came home and she was rightfully pissed. He failed as a father, a husband and a human being.

    Yeah, having seen some of that IRL, and based on everything that had been reported, I pretty much figured that alcohol was going to be a big factor in this one. It's sad.

    Well, just a matter of hours before we see if the 13-3 #1 seed playing at home in their dome can somehow find a way to upset an 11-4-1 team that hasn't won three in a row all season and that is playing with a QB making his 9th career start.

    See, that's how I'd put it too. A lot of people here seem to think the Niners have the edge, but I definitely don't think so. I'm quite worried.

    I see it as this:

    I simply wouldn't trust Mike Smith to win a game this big. Why did Atlanta blow a 20-point lead in the 4th quarter last week? Why did Atlanta even have to survive a last-second hail mary? Because Mike Smith is simply not a good head football coach.

    The head coach position is the position where San Fransisco has their biggest advantage.

    That's true. And I know this great Atlanta team has still only managed to win one playoff game. But I'm still worried.

    You should be. It wouldn't be a fan experience if you weren't worried before a big game! :)

    Well, the last time I had a team to really root for in a Championship game was 1994, back when Joe Montana was our Chiefs QB and Tony Gonzales was still in college.

    EDIT: Okay, not entirely true since I did root for the Niners last year, but I'd only seen some games. This year I've actually followed them properly.

    After watching the Lakers lose (again), I know can fully pay attention to football... the Falcons already up 10-0? Ewww.

    Yeah, I mean, I've been telling people since the beginning of the season that I thought the Falcons were going all the way this year. And as I said, I was definitely worried based on the performance in Seattle that Kaep wasn't going to be able to flash it up this week on the road in a loud dome (yeah, yeah, Seattle's not a dome but their stadium is designed to reflect noise back like one). Ugh.

    The Falcons aren't playing around today. Playing with a big chip on their shoulders.

    Ahhh, that's something at least. 17-14... good to see the 49'ers making a game of this.
