Kinda sorta not really related, a friend of mine( A store manger at Ruby Tuesday) Went to the "mangers boot camp" with Junior Seau for Ruby Tuesday. said he was a really awesome down to earth guy. As a Raiders fan I hated when they played him, he was really damn good. I was a huge fan of his though, and he is supposedly a really classy guy

Yeah, why can't this happen to Mike Vick, Ray Lewis or other scumbag athletes. :rolleyes:

the downfall of nfl iyam, they are gonna get a ****storm of negative coverage in the coming years from this stuff. as we learn more about concussions, the less appealing football becomes.

gives the NFL all that more justification in coming down so hard on the Saints and the "Bounty Gate" issues.

These guys are essentially trading 30+ years of their lives for a bunch of money (which they lose shortly after retiring) and a few years in the NFL. It's sad.

Isn't the life expectancy of an NFL athlete something like 58 years?

If it was suicide, I would guess he wanted an open casket.

Pretty wild:

Former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau died on Wednesday after what is being reported as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Linebacker David Griggs died in 1995 after his car slid off an expressway and hit a large sign pole. He was 28 years old at the time.

Running back Rodney Culver died in a plane crash on May 11, 1996. The crash of ValuJet Flight 592 killed all 110 people aboard, including Culver's wife.

Linebacker Doug Miller died in 1998 as the result of a lightning strike at the age of 28.

Center Curtis Whitley died on May 11, 2008 as the result of an overdose and was found in his trailer home in West Texas.

Defensive end Chris Mims died of an enlarged heart on Oct. 15, 2008.

Defensive tackle Shawn Lee died from cardiac arrest on Feb. 26, 2011.

Former Chargers linebacker Lew Bush died of a heart attack on Dec. 8, 2011.

Troy Polamalu on FB:
"I am deeply saddened by the events that have transpired today. My heartfelt condolences and sympathy go out to his family. Junior Seau meant so much to me and many other Samoan youth both as a player and person. Junior epitomized hard work and dedication to football and philanthropy. He was a childhood hero of mine and honored to say, a good friend. Junior Seau will always be someone I look up to and will walk the path he paved for me and many other Trojans, Samoans, and athletes alike."

Pretty crazy reading tweets, and stuff like that; dude was highly respected.

I've always said, and will always believe, suicide is the pussies way out of life. As hard as I try to understand it, there's no way I can fathom what ultimately pushes someone to kill themselves, knowing everyone close to them will suffer from their selfishness. I just can't respect that. Either way, RIP Junior, you will be missed.

This is a catch-22. You're taking a rational approach to suicide. I'd bet that most people that kill themselves are not rational people, or at least they're not being rational at the time.

Who knows what could've been going on in this man's head to make him justify, in his own mind, that it was his only way to make it better? We can't grasp that. :whoknows:

LS6 Molester 05-02-2012 01:43 PM

If Seau committed suicide by shooting himself in the chest, it is similar to the way former Chicago Bears great Dave Duerson ended his life. Duerson shot himself in the chest. the method used so that his brain could be examined for symptoms of CTE, a trauma induced disease common to NFL players and others who have received repeated blows to the head.

PrivateSoftcore 05-02-2012 02:56 PM

Scary and sad. Lots of stories like this emerging from the modern game. It's a disturbing trend to say the least.

I have a feeling that in twenty years we will have heard way too many stories like this.

1slo5.0 05-02-2012 03:01 PM

Do you think he said ow?

fondycards53 05-02-2012 03:18 PM

When I first saw the headline I didn't put a face to the name. Sadly I got junior confused with Shawn merrimen (who I wouldn't give to ****s about if he died). Once I realized who it was I couldn't believe it. Really sad to hear.

Element 05-02-2012 03:24 PM

Was well respected here in Boston and his time with the Patriots. He did a lot of the community/charities/unfortunate people around here too.

Quite the ignorant way to see it.

Dude will be missed. I'm going to his restaurant tonight in Mission Valley to have a beer in lov
