Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

CNN is saying it is a shoot to the chest.

If it is self inflicted that is rough way of doing it.

I agree!
There weren't any indications that he had any brain issues (other than driving off a cliff).
We went through a divorce, custody battle and domestic issues with a 25 year old girlfriend.

My prayers go out to his family.

Some guys lose the fame, money and perks of being a super star and can't cope.
Look at a guy like Terrell Owens, he might have already tried to commit suicide because he claims to be broke and the nfl doesn't want him anymore.
T.O. assistant described pill overdose as suicide attempt in 911 call - NYPOST.com
He was definitely an attention whore so the only thing he has left is celebrity apprentice and dancing with the stars.
I hope someone can get TO some help before he tries to commit suicide again.

I believe other athletes have killed themselves in the same manner so that there brain can be studied post mortem. Perhaps that was Seau's intent?

Oh maybe that is true, good call.

Still if I am doing it that is not the way!

Yeah i agree theres too much money involved. However if a few non-BCS states banned highschool / little leauge football that could create a big issue for the NFL.

After 19 years of playing in the NFL, plus add a college and high school football career, I am fairly certain they are going to find brain trauma. Now is there a definitive test to prove this trauma led to his depression? Probably not. But the growing amount of similar cases is leading to a probable trend.

Loved that man.

He was one of the players that really got me into football when I was younger...

I agree.

I don't think there's anything wrong with tossing that out there right now, considering how long he played like you said. In fact I think it would be a little naive to think it's not a strong possibility.

IMO what will see is raised awareness of parents. Parents will wait until at least High School to let their kids play full contact football. I don't think an elementary school child should be exposed to repeated blows to the head that full contact football creates.

But that may not be the actual reason he killed himself, even though the media will spin it that way. If he had head trauma that was bothering him then there's no way he could've played LB in the NFL til he was 40.

Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

He really must've had some serious issues to make two attempts on his life. Feel real sorry for his kids. I believe one plays football in HS.
