    They say deaths come in sets of 3. Our first 3 was Ed McMahon, Farah Fawcett and Michael Jackson.

    We then had infomercial celeb, Billy Mays, last Sunday and now McNair.
    Actually the first set of three would have been David Carradine, McMahon, and Farrah. This actually completes a second set of three with Jacko, Mays and now McNair. If you believe in such things that is...

    Yahoo Sports:

    Former NFL quarterback McNair killed in Tennessee


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair(notes) was shot multiple times, including a shot to the head, and a pistol was discovered near the body of the 20-year-old woman found dead with him Saturday in a downtown condominium.

    Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron identified the woman as Sahel Kazemi, whom he called a “friend” of McNair’s. She had a single gunshot wound to the head.

    Police said McNair was found on the sofa, and Kazemi was very close to him on the floor. Aaron said the gun was not “readily apparent when the scene was first locked down.”

    Autopsies for both were planned for Sunday.

    Aaron said McNair’s wife, Mechelle, is “very distraught.”

    “At this juncture, we do not believe she is involved,” he said. “Nothing has been ruled out, but as far as actively looking for a suspect tonight, the answer would be no.”

    The bodies were discovered Saturday afternoon by one of McNair’s longtime friends.

    Police said Kazemi was arrested Thursday on a DUI charge while driving a 2007 Escalade registered to her and McNair. McNair was in the front seat, but didn’t break the law and was allowed to leave by taxi.

    This has the ingredients of a murder-suicide. What the hell was he doing messing with a 20 year old. I send prayers out to his family. unbelievable

    Defiently one of the greatest, he had the whole package...
    Yeah that young punk, what an ******* that he would actually seek help for his problems. You know this is total bull****. I don't know where people like you think you get off with doubting whether or not Vince Young suffered from depression and thought about taking his life. Calling him a punk for doing that? Whatever. People like you are the *removed* I might get a warning for this, but seriously **** this mentality. It's ****ing bull**** and is ruining our society when we have ZERO compassion for our fellow man.

    RIP to Steve. Very sad news.

    Of all the celeb deaths to happen recently so far, this one is the most shocking to me.

    R.I.P. Steve

    The more I read about this, the more I hear about it on the radio ........... the more intricate it all gets.

    Anyway - I used to hate the Colts vs. Titans. McNair was just a pain in the butt to beat. He just figured out ways to win.

    I feel for his family.

    Yep. Let this be a lesson to anyone who's thinking of cheating on a spouse. The one you cheat with just might be crazier than you are.

    This might not be the place for this, but I hate how they are referring to her as his girlfriend...it was his mistress....the word has connotations in the negative for a reason...it needs to be used...

    I'm not disagreeing with you, but that is probably the reason that word isn't used. At least not in news articles which tend to avoid bias or passing judgment.

    It's not passing judgement. It is exactly the situation.

    He was married. He had a girl on the side, a mistress.

    100% Truth.

    The media is screwed up.

    She does fit the dictionary definition of a mistress, yes. I agree with you on that.

    All I'm saying is that from a journalist's perspective, describing her as a "mistress" could very well be considered passing judgment. As you said, it carries negative connotations.

    The girl and her family all were under the impression that McNair was going to divorce his wife for the girl. They all thought she was more than just a mistress. McNair's family would probably disagree with that. So, I guess it would depend on who you're asking.

    I think it's understandable that some journalists choose to go the safe route and call her a "girlfriend." Not all journalists agree, obviously. I've read some articles that described her as a mistress.

    I haven't read any articles describing McNair as "philandering husband Steve McNair." Even though he does fit the dictionary definition of one.

    The point is...

    McNair was a media darling, and even getting killed by a woman that he was ****ing on side has to be spun where he is at least neutral is ridiculous.

    Yes, OK, he was married. But was he separated?

    If you are separated then using the word "girlfriend" is proper.

    No. He and his wife were planning on buying a house together, and they weren't separated. Supposedly, she didn't know about the affair.

    Headline from CNN this morning"

    Mistress killed ex-NFL QB, then self, police say

    Of course when you open the article up it says "girlfriend".

    Either way a horrible decision by McNair, but not one that he deserved to die over.
