I've been trolling the obituary page of my local paper waiting for them to fix a problem with my Dad's obit and saw this news about Junior Seau. He was 43. Too young.

Prayers for Junior and his family. It’s especially sad when a great competitor turns out not equipped to transfer that drive to cope with real world problems.

Isn’t shooting yourself in the chest with a shotgun almost impossible?

My condolences on the loss of your Dad, pepsi_junkie.

It is sad to hear about Seau as well. I saw him in his prime when he was a Charger. He was a favorite of the locals, as he grew up in San Diego county before going to USC.

Two things -

Gunshot wound to the chest - with a shotgun.

Suicide.

(Really?)

so very sad. Families of suicide victims never really get past the pain, and every new suicide we hear of only brings back memories of our own personal & painful event to present day. Not an alumni group anyone wants to belong to, that’s for sure. Prayers lifted for his family and for his eternal soul...

“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 on February 17, 2011 — the method used so that his brain could be examined for symptoms of CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), a trauma-induced disease common to NFL players and others who have received repeated blows to the head.”

I just watched his mother speak during a press conference. I wept watching the pain this poor Mom exhibited. So sad.

So, in the CA sidebar Obi-Wan Kenobi getting arrested in a hit-and-run is "News" ... Octomom filing bankruptcy is "News" ... Seau's suicide is shuffled off to "Chat" so it can't be highlighted for the CA sidebar ...

Gotta love the Mods these days.
