Former NFL player Travis Rudolph was just arrested on first degree murder charges. You may remember him from this:

And not even the worst day for an ex-NFL player!

I saw that Randolph story with the quote "he made a fan for life today" and kinda laughed.

Awful story. I wonder what the backstory is on that.

Most of these guys have been playing contact football since 7 to 9 years old. It's obviously possible it's any number of other psychological issues or just even random violence, but I don't think it's impossible that long-term brain injury is to "blame".

Even Rog Goodell would bet it was a factor given even odds.

I'm sure it plays a part. But his brain just didn't randomly make him walk over to his neighbors house and kill 5 people. I feel like something had to have sparked it.

Also, literally no one is "justifying" it. Take your strawman shit somewhere else.

You literally just told us what anyone who read the article knew. It's absolute fucking bullshit to say anyone is justifying this.

Ok. You win. You're not justifying just giving a rationale. Mine is that the guy is a piece of shit. Coulda killed himself first.

Or, you know, get some therapy and not kill anyone. That could've helped too.

Acting like it was a conscious and rational decision doesn't make any sense and doesn't take away from hating the event.

Well, yeah but he didn't do that apparently or not good enough. Took the piece of shit path.

Former NFL Player Phillip Adams Had Medication Taken Away, Possibly Suffering From CTE Prior to Killing 5 People
In an interview with Alex Giles of WBTV News, U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman explained that Lesslie had treated Adams and stopped prescribing him an undisclosed medication.

“Did you say that he was treating Adams?” Giles asks. “Or that it was your understanding that he had been treating Adams?”

“My understanding, he was treating him and stopped giving him medicine,” Norman says, citing local law enforcement officials. “And that’s what triggered the killings, from what I understand.”

--snip--

Adams’ father, Alonzo Adams, spoke to WCNC and offered his condolences to the surviving members of the Lesslie family.

“All I can say is we pray for the family,” he said. “[Robert Lesslie] used to be my doctor a long time ago. I know they were good folks down there. We’re gonna keep them in our prayers.”

Alonzo also expressed his suspicions that his son, who was diagnosed with at least two concussions and other notable injuries throughout the course of his six-year NFL career, could’ve been suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy—more commonly known as CTE.
“All I'm sayin' is, he comes near me, I'll put him in the wall.”

I've been told that we're not allowed to feel sorry for anyone suffering from a neurological disorder caused by repeated trauma to the brain because of sports, so he should have just been "tough enough" to deal with it.

Yeah. Too insensitive but leads to a really hard question of that to do with the mentally ill. An ill client had some 3am obsession with non-existent money and said some shit to me a while back. Almost bought a gun for his ass. Might need to consider again. Difficult question.

Story leads to a lot more questions like why was he removed from his meds amongst others. Given what happened not likely we'll ever know.
