    Steve McNair is a similar story. Sad, but still relevant to my perception to how I will remember him now.
    How do you know he did any "wrong" doing? If you did I would guess that you would have gone to the trial as a witness.

      OJ Simpson didn't have to be convicted for me to know he did it. Obviously it's not that extreme of a case but come on.

        If you read carefully you can see I said none of them were ever proved. Clearly I don't KNOW he did anything wrong. He wasn't viewed as a saint while he was alive, but now in death he was perfect...?

        You can pass your own judgement based on his life, and I'll have mine. No worries.

          Did you ever see the evidence or witnessed it happen? The US goes with something called "innocent until proven guilty." I wont go into politics though.

            The thing is his own... Americans hated him, disrespected him, looked down upon him as a freak... while the rest of the world adored him.

            The dude was misunderstood. He used parts of his brain that most humans don't. Like seriously.

              I see what you are saying, but I have seen more posts hating on him and calling him a child abuser even when he is dead than I have seen people talking about how talented he was.

                No, but I feel like I know enough about the situation to make my own decision as to how I feel about the guy.

                  I wasnt there when it all took place so I will side with the people that listened to the witnesses, saw the evidence, and debated forever on whether it was beyond a reasonable doubt to convict him.

                  Back to the movie so I dont get this locked for politics.....I havent seen it yet but I have been wanting to. I may go see it later this week.

                    The fact is that a lot of celebrities get accused of crimes. Not a lot of them get convicted. I'm not just going to blindly take his not getting convicted as an undeniable fact.

                      In my mind MJ was pretty messed up and if there was never any controversy surrounding him i'd still feel the same. Of course the movie isnt going to add anything bad when basically its a tribute to him.

                          I haven't seen this movie yet, but I heard Sammy Sosa gives a killer performance.
                          The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                            Michael Jackson isn't really dead. He will come out of hiding any time now and put a concert where the whole world watches. Tickets will cost 1000000 each. JK. I saw the movie. I may not be old enough to understand why he is so great. But this movie sure helped. Great show. I will def. buy this when it comes out.

                              You people don't even seem to understand what the movie is about. It's not a tribute movie. It's just a documentation of the practices that he was doing in preparation for his concerts coming up. Showed how he acted, thought and performed. I guess one thing will remain the same... and that he will forever be misunderstood. For those who did or do watch it. Let me know if it changes your perspective on him or what.

                                Is there any meaning behind naming his child Blanket?
