    OJ Simpson (1947-2024)

    Very complicated relationship with one of the great athletes of all-time.

    In any event, he could not outrun cancer.

    Why are you wasting time here when you could be wasting it by listening to the latest episode of the DBR Podcast?

    Lived a longer life than the people he murdered.

    I am by no means excusing is almost certain committing of two murders, but I do wonder if O.J. Simpson had CTE or they will be doing an autopsy. Just so many of these guys have gotten CT and end up harming themselves through suicide or seem to have trouble with emotional regulation,

    itís not an excuse for the behavior, but I do wonder about CTE and itís effects. I have to say itís made me much less a fan of professional football and I watch almost no college football.

    He didn't kill them after simply going off in a spur of the moment blinding rage, he planned it.
    It's sad that he's been given this RIP thread, which have always been for celebrating those that left a meaningful impact on us. He didn't leave anything meaningful other than ruined lives.

    Yep. No RIP from me. I prefer BIH for him.

    Turd of a guy no doubt, but for those who got to see him play he was one of those rare athletes who was so much better than all the other guys. In the end I guess that doesn't count for much.

    I appreciate the comment in parens in the subject of this thread, but perhaps we should go one step further to "OJ Simpson Died"?

    I'm trying to imagine what the car ride would have been like today with Twitter/X - I think the internet would have exploded.

    P can stand for lots of stuff. It can also be used phonetically.

    All due respect, but I don't think "turd of a guy" begins to cover it when we are talking about a longtime domestic violence perpetrator and ultimately a double murderer.

    I guess the Goldmans never quite saw the money they were owed from that civil verdict, did they? I'm shocked . . .

    RIP (I guess?) OJ Simpson
    This thread has a terrible, borderline irresponsible title and the responses have been going pretty much the way I had expected. It's particularly egregious because it's trying to be cute, but it just sounds like we're not sure that he's dead.

    I've said in the past that I'd be a moderator if my only task was to fix the obituary headlines so that they follow this format:

    OJ Simpson (1947-2024)

    No sentiment at all. Newsworthy. This is a person who lived and died. Bring your own baggage to this thread.

    I guess I'll try to be more graphic in the future. I didn't mean turd as a compliment.
