And after the SF 49ers gave it all up to the New York Giants Sunday in the NFC championship game, some people couldn’t deal with the heartache and pointed the blame on one fatal mistake made by Kyle Williams.
The wide receiver obviously felt the sheer disappointment from the world of 49er supporters, his team, and probably his family. But what made it worse were the cautionary messages he received from angry fans who tweeted and Facebooked death threats.
ESPN says, the NFL player’s father and Chicago White Sox general manager, Kenny Williams, has since questioned culture of U.S. sports, saying this isn’t what it should stand for.
“I’m used to the years of criticism and threats on my life from time to time, but I have to hear about threats on your son’s life while you’re watching TV and it certainly makes you question our culture of sports as it stands,” Williams said.
Since the tragedy occurred, the younger Williams has since taken responsibility for his actions and would like more than anything, to just move on.
“It’s one of those things you have to take accountability for,” (Kyle) Williams said. “Everybody is responsible for what they do on the field. It’s something that I was responsible for and I made a mistake and it’s time to own up to it and move forward.”
