    That's because it is someone close.

    We fans love our team, love our players and that's why we see so much emotion after every win and after every loss.

    Kenny had his knee injury issues plague him and without speculating, wonder if that was getting to him. He loved this game. He loved this team. Just like we all learned to love him.

    It's OK to be sad even if none of us actually shook his hand or got to say hello on the street.

    The Broncos and we the fans are a family.

    We just lost part of that.

    The nature of this whole thing is obviously already under debate which is going to make it more difficult to accept.

    Mourning not a Message

    This is about mourning the loss of a promising young man. I have experienced loss in many different ways. Loss is loss.

    Analyzing situations like this tend to be a barrier to a persons own mourning.

    What I'm saying is not about not honoring him, and certainly not about supporting the family.

    What I'm talking about is more of in the social setting (typically schools), it's not a good idea to give great deals of attention. Because other people who are or may be considering it, see the attention that it gets and it can encourage them to do the same.

    It's not about not caring for the departed, but about being careful about those who are still with us. Again, usually, this refers to school settings, or other places where there are a large number of peers.

    I'm not trying to take anything away from McKinley, and certainly not from his family and friends who deserve and need all of the support they can get. Celebrations, and memorials IF (and it still remains to be officially stated) it's a suicide can have consequences on other people in similar situations.

    That is just my two cents - it's not about NOT caring for him, but about being careful with others.

    I realize my original comment offended some, and I hope this clarifies or explains things. Regardless, I'm not going to comment further, because I don't think this is the appropriate place for that type of discussion.

    But again, my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends, and I hope that they find the strength to get through this.

    So here we have a psychologist who is understanding and a therapist who doesn't understand the effects of suicide on those who knew him! Saltparrot? If you truly do have a background in therapy, then you of all people should know the effects of suicide are on those who are left behind.

    One thing that will never change is the class that this organization shows towards its players when tragedy befalls them. Thanks Pat.

    I must ask. Who do you think memorials are for? Perhaps there is some confusion between borderline personality tendencies and a motive to end one's life. Out of respect, please understand, as previously posted, the latter is not attention seeking.

    I would expect someone with a therapeutic background to be able to differentiate.

    It's not about glorify suicide.

    It's remembering a celebrating a life.

    Demonetization of people committing suicide is rather unjust. Comes from people who cannot know what is going on or occurring.

    Suicide hurts more than just the person doing it. It's not looking looking for attention.

    It's deeper.

    It's Darker.

    It's a scary place.
