— WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka has died at the age of 73 his daughter, Tamina, announced on Sunday on her Twitter account. It was reported in December Snuka was in hospice with six months to live.

Snuka was the legendary WWE character “Superfly” but was charged in 2015 with the 1983 murder of his then-girlfriend, Nancy Argentino. The charges were dropped earlier this month when he was found incompetent to stand trial.

Because of this, reaction to his death was both positive and negative in social media.

      Jimmy Snuka is a murderer. His place in wrestling history is cemented but no one’s legacy in a business outweighs murder. Come on, simple. — TOMÁS RÍOS (@TheTomasRios) January 15, 2017

— Following the Chiefs’ 18-16 playoff loss to the Steelers Sunday night, Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce criticized referee Carl Cheffers for the holding call on tackle Eric Fisher that cost the Chiefs a two-point conversion that would have tied the game.

“Referee No. 51 shouldn’t even be able to wear a zebra jersey ever again,” Kelce said. “He shouldn’t even be able to work at f—ing Foot Locker. For it to end like that, with the referee literally taking it out of our hands, that hurt. You try to play this game with integrity, to the end of the whistle, and when the refs want to take over the game and make it their own platform, there’s nothing you can do about it. That wasn’t a hold on my guy Eric Fisher. I hope [Fisher] doesn’t go the entire offseason thinking it was his fault. That was horses—, flat out.”

“There was an unbelievable play called on the last drive,” Kelce continued. “Alex just drove us down there [to] fourth down, making plays, making plays. Momentum is getting on our side, and we just get our jugulars ripped out because the refs felt bad for James Harrison falling on the ground.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “You can’t do things that are defined by the rules as illegal. You can’t do them, period. There’s no right thing to do [by getting involved]. The rule is the rule. You have to play the game by the rules. Obviously, we’ve got to do a better job of coaching it, do a better job of coaching all the rules.” — Bill Belichick, on Eric Rowe’s 15-yard penalty for pulling Houston’s Ryan Griffin off a pile during the Patriots’ 34-16 win over the Texans Saturday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Joseph Fauria (27), Kelly Faris (26), Dave Stapleton (63)

The Steelers were impressive despite the inability to break the endzone. We also, once again, goof on Ray Lewis for being a dope. And we get a major example of why the Patriots are the Patriots and the Steelers are the Steelers.
The Patriots' opponent has been set after the Steelers knocked off the Chiefs Sunday Night. Travis Kelce was more than annoyed at the officials. And hey, that Le'Veon Bell guy is pretty good. We take a look at another playoff weekend and ponder if Goodell will ever come visit.
Patriots linebacker joins Glenn, Lou and Christian to talk about the win over the Texans, the upcoming AFCCG against the Steelers and responds to the comments Mike Tomlin made that were recorded on Antonio Brown's Facebook Live.

[0:01:37] ... different discussion. Yeah I even was it Jason Garrett was talking about Aaron Rodgers saying he will be. One of the three greatest court taxable out of spite of the OK okay Alexei that delicate as they will be I think he could be. Legitimate predictions this you can make their prediction a gut but if we're gonna do that if this team wins against Pittsburgh this week in Green Bay beats Atlanta.

You know is there coach out there that I can pleased that I can finally start talk about in the class of Bill Belichick and tired of giving him all the respect. Same with numbered there's a lot people out there you see a national media who have no matter where it is. Yes you'll hear a lot of that and I guarantee most of the talked.
