Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

just awful news. the second i heard he was dead i knew it was suicide. i had a feeling thats what really happened when he "feel asleep at the wheel" a year or so ago. it will be interesting to find out if a note was left, or if he had talked to anyone before taking his life. one of the all time greats, rip.

anyone else remember his nike commercial with dennis hopper? i used to love it

From a current saints player Eric olsen

“Wow this is a tough one,” Olsen wrote on his Twitter account when he heard about Seau’s death. “When I was a frosh in HS Junior Seau worked the Jay Fiedler Football camp and at the end of one of the days he challenged anyone to a 1-on-1. Being one of the ‘big’ kids, I was volunteered by my buddies and went up in front of the whole camp to face this monster of a man. Shaking in my cleats, he gave me a wink before a coach gave the cadence. He let me pancake him. And he sold it too. I can’t even tell you how good I felt at that moment; it changed me forever. The whole camp cheered for me, a chubby kid that didn’t know if he even liked football. From then on I was addicted. All thanks to this 10-time all-pro that felt like makIng
some snot-nosed kid’s day. Doesn’t seem like much but it meant a lot to me. Sorry for the essay just had to share. RIP Junior I’ll never forget what you did for me.”

Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

Depression whether through football injuries or bad relationships is a terrible thing. RIP Junior a favorite player of mine, I hope you find piece in the afterlife.

Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

Not that I want to encourage or condone suicide but in the case of collision sport athletes there is an odd sense of honor in the self-inflicted chest wound in light of preserving the brain for future research. If for nothing more then the fact that it seems a painful way to go.

Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

I hope that Junior Seau didn't take his own life. We remember him as a defensive competitor on the gridiron. But as a person and a man, he always was a class act. He's one of the greatest to ever play the game.

Nike commercial featuring Stanley talk about Junior Seau - YouTube
There was no note left. They have ruled it a suicide and texted his ex-wife and kids the night before telling that he loved them.

Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

I read that he is now the 8th member of the Chargers SB Team in 94 to have died.. Weird

I had a person really close to me kill themselves. Honestly I think it's the most selfish act someone can make. I don't feel sorry for anyone that chooses to go that route unless there is some mental issue that caused it. While the evidence is building there might be something to head trauma, My opinion is that it might have more to do with supplements, hgh, steroids, or other enhancements that have come about in the last 30 or so years. I would love to see the evidence of how many players has this issue when they didn't wear helmets.

Agreed. There is waaaaaay too much money invested in this sport and I can't imagine it will change.

Didn't Duerson do that as well so his brain could be studied? Having lost several people to suicide it is never easy and hell if it ever makes total sense especially for the people left behind.

Yeah, thats probably where he got the idea from. Just tragic but at least it won't be for nothing.

Kind of crazy though. I mean a lot of us have probably thought at one time or another how great it would be to be a star football player with millions of dollars and celebrity. Never mind a star player in sunny San Diego.

However if he was suffering from depression brought on by head injuries to the point where he was willing to take his own life.....maybe all the money and fame isn't worth it.

Re: Junior Seau Confirmed Dead

This is so sad to see. I didn't want to post so soon after seeing the news just because it was so fresh. After living in San Diego for a few years as a teenager and seeing his impact on that area firsthand, he easily became one of my all time favorite non-Redskin players. It's such a shame to have all signs pointing towards his demons winning out and him leaving the world this way. Sometimes those of us putting on the bravest front are the ones needing help the most. RIP Junior I hope you're at peace now.
