    I’m blown away to hear about this and I know Jamie isnt the bad guy in this case. I’ve got zero inside info about what happen and I’ve not seen or talked to Jamie in years but the one thing I will say is he can’t be the bad guy. Keep your head up and keep your cool Jamie and hopefully things will work out for you man. This is just horrible news to find out about someone you thought and respected so much after everything he and his family has been through. Good luck Jamie.

    All of the facts will come out soon…Then he won’t be such a bad guy after all!!!! So before you bash him, sit back and wait on the facts. Yes, violence is not the answer, but I can bet all of those that are ready to trash talk Mr. Gafford, have a few skeletons in their own closets. If you are perfect and have never made a mistake, then kudos to you!!!!!!!! However, you are fooling yourself, no one is perfect….JUST JESUS!!!! So unless you were there, you don’t know what went on…..
    JUDGE NOT!!!!!

    I am not condoning the acts, but I also know that the truth needs to come out. He is a human who reacted without thinking, and I think that there needs to be some light shed onto the facts. Prayers for the best possible outcome in the situation!

    The man who assaulted someone else is the one who made that choice. BLaming his wife or anyone else for the choices he made is a stupid thing to do. If he broke in somewhere and attacked someone he is in the wrong and should turn himself in. We would all like to exact revenge for wrongs done to us. When we make that choice to act out on violent impulses we become like those we attack.

    I believe in you man! Any man in his right mind would have done the same thing. Been knowing this man for awhile and he is a family man and one hell of a coach. If you need me call me!

    I know my brother is torn about this. I love and he has always been there for me. We as men would have done same thing if you love a woman. I’m not judging, I’m dissapointed, but I wish the best for my brother and his wife. Let it be Gods will.

    You the man Jamie G. There’s Good Guys and there’s bad guys. Obviously the badge can probably serve but it can’t protect all the time. But this time the Bad Guy turned into a Good Guy and the Good Guy turned into the bad guy. You didn’t do anything the next man would have done.

    Jamie turning yourself in would be the best thing to do. You are a great man and father. The ones that know the truth will stand behind you. Like he said you done what any other man would have done. His wife should be ashamed of her actions letting something like this happen. If you love someone, be with them. Dont play games and act like you care, if you don’t care and its not working out then leave. Dont lead a man on. Be a woman about the situation. Jamie you are a strong person and have plenty of people standing behind you. You can over come this and be the better person, sometimes attitude and anger get the best of people but you are a better person.

    Praying for the children involved. Things like this always seem to hurt the children the most.
