The first position I played at, loved, and excelled at was linebacker. When I first started playing when I was around 11, one of my friends said something about Junior Seau. I saw him play and I immediately became a fan... I loved how he played and he was one of the guys I tried to play like.

Really sad, especially considering he left behind 3 kids.

I'm convinced that this is somehow related to the brain injury issues, otherwise, I just don't understand how when you make a good living, money isn't a concern, and you have a family that loves you - how could you ever do something so short-sighted and selfish.

Really sad, God bless his soul.

Hate it for his family and his friends and his fans.

But suicide is a shitty thing to do to those folks you claim to love.

Great player and by all accounts a great man whos last act was to be a douchebag.

massive traumatic brain injuries will do weird things to you, this isn't exactly uncharted territory... I think douchebag is a bit presumptuous.

I just wish he could have found something he loved as much as football worth living for.

Yeah maybe so...

I just have a hard time with suicide and people who choose it.

Yeah, you really have to give some thought to the fact that he shot himself in the chest like Duerson did.
