    That's sad to hear. RIP Junior. He always seemed to come to the game ready to play didn't he? And here I was thinking he was living the life of ease in sunny San Diego.

    Odd. Most suicides by hand-gun is to the head. My brother went that way, my other brother jumped off a bridge.

    Thanks J-bay. It is what it is. I guess they just couldn't cope with life and I'm still mad as hell at both of them.

    what a bummer. Jr was a great leader both on and off the football field. I posted my thoughts on the pats board and I'm repeating what I said here. I extend my deepest sympathies to his family and they have my prayers as well.

    also the same to you harv on the losses you and your family have had.

    It's possible he wanted his brain intact for research.

    Yes. That's what happened with Duerson. They get brain damage from the concussions. They want their brain to be examined after death, so they shoot themselves in the heart. Not sure if that is the case with Seau , but it might be.

    Dont think so.  He probably have tried killing himself two years ago when his car went off of the cliff.  I know the original news stated that he stated that he fell asleep.  But after seeing him to committ suicide, sound like he is depressed.  But he have three kids, dont he find anything fun to hang out with his kids?

    Well sad day for NFL and the San Diego community!!

     it would seem to me that a concussion or any brain injury would lead to depression, which is what leads to suicide.

    Info still coming out but pretty certain he did that to keep his brain intact for future study. 

    Post-concussion symptoms can be very difficult to cope with. These guys know it and it's sad but in a way heroic. I hope the knowledge is put to good use.

    RIP

    That was thoughtful of him. Too bad he wasn't thoughtful of those left behind like his mom.

    It's so incredibly sad. It's just a hunch...but I'd wager an opiate and/or benzo addiction will be found to have played a part. There's no doubt an aging athlete suffers from many aches and pains, especially football players, and there are all too many charlatan "doctors" standing by willing to allow them to become addicted to pills that will ultimately kill them. Best wishes to his heart broken family and cirle of friends.

    not comparable, but my roommate in college did the same a month after graduation. i had the same emotion as yours, on behalf of the people who loved him. 

    just the same sorry for our loss.

    What about that dissident in Beijing and the US Embassy's efforts to have him sent to a Chinese Hospital? Will that disrupt Secretary of State Clinton's agenda? Let's discuss here in this forum.

    Because that's as relevant to a RED SOX thread as NFL News.

    Also, gas prices -- can we review the oil refininery capacity across the Southwest region through Q3?  Discuss! All topics welcome here, obviously.

    Odd. Most suicides by hand-gun is to the head. My brother went that way, my other brother jumped off a bridge.

    Terrible tragedy, as is the case with the premature end to any natural life. As to manner of suicide, most female suicides via gun is to the chest. 

    I can't even contemplate the mental state in the wake of a family suicide. It is disturbing enough to know that other people must some how suffer and survive through such tragidies.
