They're saying that the suicide was an excuse to just not play with Chile on Saturday. And it's unfair that the match had to be suspended.
"Why the next friendly match of Germany isn't suspended either? Does the mourn only last when they play with us? cowards!"

He had a HUGE fear of losing the adopted child (who is legally not yet adopted, but only a fosterchild) if the depressions would have been known publicly. Teresa said in the presser she had called the youth welfare office and they reassured her that wouldn't happen.
But another point that is important in my opinion is the public reaction: if the depressions would have been known publicly EVERYTHING would have been investigated by the press and every mistake he would have done would have been weighed doubled. There would have been surveys: "Is it possible to take a goalkeeper to South Africa as #1 who suffers from depressions?" And I'm not sure if Löw would have taken him to the WC as #1. I noticed in the last few weeks that Löw is very much influenced by the public opinion. When Robert couldn't play the quali-matches in September he said clearly: "Robert Enke is our #1." Then the healing of his physical problems took longer than everybody thought, René Adler held great in his club and tremendously vs Russia, the discussion started: "Shouldn't René Adler get at least a chance to fight for the #1 spot?" And what did Löw say: "We have 3 or 4 goalkeepers that fight for the #1 spot." Hmmmmm, we know today that Robert consulted his psychiatrist again in the beginning of October, when this discussion started. I'm not sure that Löw would have taken him to South Africa if 50 million people would have said: "No, it's not good to take him to the WC", 20 million "Yes, take him to the WC though" and 10 million: "I don't care, I don't follow football anyway."
