    It is never okay to rush to judgement. Never. But I agree that if this was about the game, no matter what this man might have said, those who beat him need to be held accountable.

    I've never been a trash talker....especially living in Louisiana. Regardless of why it happened -- I wish people (and men especially) would consider what you are leaving behind ..... and keep your mouth closed and your veins booze free....

    The most I did after the game was post: The Sounds of Silence on Facebook...... it just seemed appropriate

    The only semi-trash talking I do is here, among friends, knowing I'm "preaching to the choir." In mixed company, I refrain, and get no joy out of it whatsoever.

    As I said in the other thread, alcohol and tempers do not mix. I love your statement - consider what you are leaving behind. Multiple families have now been destroyed because of this.

    Stupid. Just stupid. Perhaps the greatest paradox I've ever encountered is how the human race can be loving, good, and inspirational in one instance, and so hateful, evil, and stupid in another.

    I agree with B1G on this horrible incident. OTOH I am shocked, I say shocked, he would be involved in any kind of altercation in a bar.

    Just terrible. It's a game.

    I read part of the thread on Tiger Droppings about this. It may have involved a woman more than the game.

    Someone quoted an article that said one of the killers got married on Saturday.

    Two points here:
    1- one article I read stated that the victim was (sucker) punched once, fell and hit his head, which eventually caused his death. One punch does qualify as being 'beat to death', I suppose, but is really more of a freak accident.
    2- this is really more non-sports related, but this is why I content that if you put your hands on another man, you better be prepared for whatever comes your way. People dying from striking their heads after being knocked unconscious isn't as uncommon as some think.

    Police have not said specifically what prompted the attack, but the police chief told WDSU's Michael Vinsanau that the fight was not over LSU-Alabama game. The Chief said the fight began over an undisclosed incident involving Bowers' niece, who was intoxicated.

    Bowers' daughter, Alexandria Bowers, told NOLA.com that she, her boyfriend, her father and her female cousin were at the Ponchatoula Pub to watch Saturday night's LSU-Alabama game. Witnesses told the daughter that a man took issue with her cousin at the bar, at which point the two men approached her father.

    Then it becomes voluntary manslaughter and a number of lives are altered forever...

    No matter what started it, to lose a life for anything like this is just nuts. Like road rage, is someone talking trash or cutting you off really worth a life? A split second of stupidity cost one man his life and may cost 1 or more their freedom. Was what ever happened worth it? if you cannot hold you liquor, quit drinking before it ruins your life and others lives. JEEZ stupid is just stupid.

    THIS. I said on this board last week that I feared for the safety of our fans down there. No idea who started what but it is done now. As for me? I would have used discretion, and stayed away from any bar in that town. Especially under the given circumstances.
