CBS should be embarrassed. Didn't bring up Belcher until 12:05. Avoided "should they have played today?" convo completely. What a disgrace.—

CBS is taking strong criticism for waiting until 5 minutes into its pregame show to mention the Jovan Belcher tragedy. Belcher reportedly killed his girlfriend and then committed suicide Saturday.
The network also did its best to make Belcher appear as a victim.
And it continued at halftime.
As if that was not enough, CBS’ fantasy site explained why the horrific event would not impact anyone’s fantasy football team.
