Reaction from Wizards

Caron Butler: "My thoughts and prayers are with Sean's family, his teammates, the Redskins organization and the fans. He was a very talented player and a really good person. He always had a smile on his face the couple of occassions I saw him. This is a terrible tragedy and I am really saddened at this loss."
Antawn Jamison: "While I did not know Sean personally, I felt a connection because we represent the same commmunity. I was a big fan of his and thought he was a tremendous football player. This is something that is very hard to swallow. This is going to be difficult to move on from, so we are going to have to continue to pray for him and his family."

I sill can't believe he's gone... BANG! just like that... This guys seemed practically immortal by what we watch on the football field with his speed, size, power and aggressiveness. I guess at times it's just shocking to know these guys are just as human as you, me or the next person.

I don't know if that is right, wrong or just the way it is in this age of information overload, news, news and more news, technology and instant gratification ...

Reality (and therefore life in general) seems to be so easily distorted.

At times I struggle with whether we (as a human race) are drifting further and further away from what is real, true, human, and important in life.

Cyn Cyty I sent JLC an e mail telling him the way things are being handle is wonderful. You guys have shown respect for those like myself who are still having a hard time with this and giving those who want news on cap and other stuff. Keep up the great work and thanks.

Thanks, JM. We never doubt for a second the devotion you guys have to this team and we want you to know every single thing that's happening, as it's happening. Hopefully, it won't be too upsetting, but that's a filter we just aren't going to apply.

I agree...

I certainly don't have a problem with the way the news on the Redskins has been delivered. It's been great.

Anyone else check out redskins.com...?

I like the way their site home page is dedicated to Sean... Well done.

Yes, thank you to the way you are covering this Cindy. Can you tell Wilbon that his column today was a really impressive piece of writing, and that he raises important points about this being a bigger issue than football. But he hurt himself by broaching the topic in an informal setting like a chat where he could not develop his ideas properly. That made him look opportunistic and COMPLETELY callous (not to mention somewhat egotistical). My opinion of Wilbon is much higher today than it was yesterday.

Also, I wanted to reiterate my previous post praising how Jason LaC is covering this. Truly rising above the norm in terms of how hard he is working on it and how sensitive he has been to all of the extremely painful circumstances around Sean Taylor's death.

JLC,
I know you've been hearing it a lot but I want to continue the praise of how up-to-date you've kept us. I find myself at work hitting the refresh button every 2 minutes to see something new on all this. I used to try and read this page every once in a while, but now I'll be checking up on everything you have to say as often as possible.

It's sad this has to happen like this. Really the word to describe it is UNFAIR, because ST was changing everything in his life from what we hear. The fact that some piece of trash could just take it all away is just crushing and still has me in disblief...

Keep us posted on the latest....good work

I like the Wizards. Some real class guys on that team. I wonder if I'll be able to work up the interest to watch the Spurs game tonight. Still don't know, heard they played great in Dallas

I'll share your comments with Wilbon. The problem with chats is that they're like email: you can fire off a response before it's fully baked. You're doing three different things at once -- chatting, talking on the cell, watching TV.
