In the ESPN article "Kansas City Chiefs' Jovan Belcher Kills Girlfriend, Himself", the author, Elizabeth Merrill, does a great job of including the most important facts at the beginning of the article. Her first couple of paragraphs are able to grab the reader's attention immediately.
Merrill does nice work by getting the player's background information, but it is lacking the reaction of someone that was close with Belcher. Many of the quotes are from people that hadn't spoken to him in a while or didn't get a lot of individual time with him.
Overall, the article had a good flow to it. It helped readers first understand the basis of the article and then it provided further information that gave the story more depth.
