It seems scary to contemplate, but I intuit that Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was gunned down by a gangster who lost a lot of money when the Broncos choked and coughed up their NFL playoff spot on the last day of the season. It may not have been planned; seeing a Bronco player partying in his limousine hours after the numbing defeat could have triggered a temper and tempered a trigger.
If players figure this out, whether or not a police arrest provides confirmation, it will introduce a chilling new component to our sporting events.
This kind of thing can only be solved one way, by the Marines landing in Afghanistan, i.e. a very harsh and intolerant police assault on the mobsters who are the heavies of sports betting. This has been done a few times in the past, most notably after the Black Sox scandal.
