    NFL - Junior Seau suicide



    edit: it's not appearing embedded for me, so here's the link if it's not for you either: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR67bL-7As0

    As an NFL fan, this vid makes me want to bawl, thought I'd share. It's unbelievable that someone who could look so happy could have the demons inside to be driven to kill themself. Do you reckon the concussion shit is going to hit the fan now? He shot himself in the chest so his brain could be donated for examination, last I heard.

    Mod Edit (Gloop): Made youtube link work, type just the characters after v=

    Saw this a few days ago. The story is saddening, indeed.

    The concussion "shit" is already hitting the fan for the NFL, and will only continue to get worse.

    They shouldn`t just file concussion lawsuits. No matter what injury an NFL player gets they "recover" way to fast from it according to the NFL doctors.

    They just want to get their meat as fast as possible on the playing field, not giving a shit about long term consequences.

    Then you get scandals like bounty hunting for injuries and you ask yourself if you can even call handegg a sport anymore.

    Edit: As I understand Junior was one of those guys that would play injured just because he could and the family denied that they want the brain to be studied for some kind of concussion related depression.

    He wasn`t one of the players sueing the NFL and his suicide probably has nothing to do with the concussion lawsuit.


    But wow it`s kind of a coincidence that 2 former NFL defensive players shoot themselves in the chest and one of them texts his family that they should allow his brain to be examined.

    Edit 2: Junior Seau drove his truck off a California cliff back in 2010 following a domestic violence arrest. It's unclear if it was a suicide attempt.
