I heard that earlier on PFT--that's an incredible statistic.

It has to do with how people react to prices when they are raised because someone is under the perception they have some kind of leverage over the market.

I agree, the toll this takes on a family is unbearable. He quit when things got tough, and shooting himself to escape the pain is a selfish act, and one reason I have no sympathy for Seau, but for his children and his family who will be haunted for the rest of their life. And his children will always wonder why their father chose to do this...everyone goes thru ups and downs, I pray to my savior Jesus christ to make me stronger, and he does...

God Bless the family, they will need it

Horrible stuff--it's impossible to walk in any other person's shoes. Every photo or image of him I recall was an ear to ear grin or his football focussed intensity. I say we start a Rest in Peace/Memorial Junior Seau thread where members post Seau cards from our collections.

Former NFL star Seau dead of possible suicide - San Antonio Express-News

Wasn't there a study on head injuries that could lead to suicide & other brain altering behavior?

RIP Junior Seau- A great linebacker.

This is what you call a death spike in the information age:

2010 Topps Five Star Gold Junior Seau Patch on Card Auto /30 Chargers | eBay

2010 Topps Five Star Gold Junior Seau Patch on Card Auto /30 Chargers | eBay

$100 bump for the exact same card 57 minutes apart.

Congrats to Junior. Sad for the rest of the world but he went out on his own terms. I for one won't be selfish and say he was selfish and should've thought about others. My condolences to his family and those who truly loved him.

Jeez....horrible news.

And the worse part is that it's a possible Suicide.

DAMN, Goodbye Seau.


As a Dolphin Fan I appreciated your few years with us.

Yes and think some of its ongoing. Its also semi common for those taking their own life and semi concerned about it being from concussions to take a chest shot instead of the head in case they then try to use it for science.

This is sad. I feel bad for his family. His mom was just melting on tv...hard to not agree no parent should bury their child.

I went to school in San Diego and went to the Chargers training camp during the summers. I had met and gotten Seau's autograph a couple of times while I was in San Diego. Although it was many years ago, he is probably one of the last people that I would have thought to have committed suicide.

Well, McNair was killed by a psychopath woman.

But there is a correlation between NFL player suicide and tons of blows to the head.

Also, there's THIS:

I keep my heart in my chest. I guess its as good a place as any to shoot if you want to end it.

That's too bad. I grew up across the street from his brother. Got to meet him once. One of the all time great linebackers. RIP

+1 So unfortunate, but it's looking more and more like the constant head blows in football have significant long term effects like dementia and depression. Makes you wonder a bit about the future of youth football - if I have a son I'm not sure I'd want him playing football. Unless maybe he was a punter.

As a person with an undergraduate psych major...depression is a very serious illness and it's not something faith or even meds can always control. I definitely still have sympathy for Seau and I think everyone should. Suicide is not a good answer for someone in a good state of mind, but I don't think Seau was in a good state of mind. Tragic day, RIP Junior.

I wasn't making fun of what happened. For example, Sean Taylor and Darrent Williams were I believe shot and killed for this reason
