    I feel kind of torn about that sort of thing. Most of these crimes are perpetrated by a loon wanting to make headlines, why help him grab them?

    Hopefully, the 7th will be a night of football, plain and simple. That's what I hope, at least.

    No, please. One event has absolutely nothing to do with the other. The politicization of that horror is bad enough already. Must every child that watches that game be reminded of what terrible things can happen at school? Sadly, there is no quick and easy answer to the problem that troubles us all. I teach elementary school and would be in favor of virtually any realistic measure that would end such shootings. I don't see how a sticker on a helmet or a patch on a jersey will help. If anyone would like to discuss this on the non-sports forum, I'd be more than willing to do so. However, I'd like to watch the game without a constant reminder of the deaths of all those children, especially when doing so serves no purpose.

    No. The event, while tragic, has been grossly politicized.

    I agree. It brought up 2nd amendment issues again.

    Let these families rest in peace. I agree with many of the above sentiments as to why we shouldn't.

    It made sense for VaTech. It does not make sense for us.

    I hope not. Otherwise Musberger will channel his inner Bob Costas.

    Although the pilot of the plane that crash landed in the Hudson did toss the coin in 2010.
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart

    Welcome aboard TideFans, davidjanet. Merry Christmas!

    Hmm ... That's an usual username. Is it shared by a male and female?

    Indeed, this was a very sad, unforgettable event. While helmets are football and sports related. IMO, this subject is more appropriate for the Non-Sports Forum. The rules are different there.

Society will not forget this tragic incident, continue to put pressure on politicians to try and find solutions. Unfortunetly our society has a tendency to forget events like this, because other news will get put on the frontburner.
    No matter how much pressure is put on politicians, there are no easy solutions. A good start would be to outlaw insanity. Next, make schools more secure, which is best handled on the local level.
    Oh, Susanna. Oh, don't you cry for me, for I come from Alabama with a banjeaux on my knee. G'wan to Louisiana my true love for to see.

    putting a decal on a helmet will not keep this from happening again...as much as we would all like to think it would be that simple..
