People who attempt suicide are often temporarily insane. The lethality of a gun makes it more likely that they'll succeed. It's sad.Junior Seau, a 43-year old 12-time NFL Pro Bowl linebacker, was found dead today in his home, the result of a gunshot wound, police confirmed.Police are investigating the shooting at the Oceanside, Calif., residence of the former New England Patriot and San Diego Chargers football star as a suicide. Police confirmed that Seau was found by his girlfriend at his beachfront home with a gunshot wound to his chest.
What do you think? Please leave a comment.
There is a lot of conjecture flying around about Junior Seau's death. Of course it came with "zero warning". I'll be looking for the stories in the near future about the "zero" warnings that his family, friends and associates knew about. I rooted against Seau for most of his career--because he used to lay a whippin' on my NEPatriots, but he was, afaia, a class act--just a very hard hitting player. He showed a little more class in taking his own life and not the someone else's.ReplyDelete

Sez a whanker who won't even sign his comments; yeah, that's really gonna bedevil me forever. Here's a clue fuckwad, I liked the guy; the "class" he showed was pretty much the opposite of the "killer wit teh hurtin' fee-fees" act that J.T. Ready put on for his swan song. Mr. Seau could have killed himself in any number of ways, that he chose the gun says he wanted it to be fast and final--even if the "wanting" was something that might have passed in a short period of time.
Your parents named you Democommie? Or did you have your name legally changed? A nom de guerre isn't much more informative than calling one's self anonymous.Delete

Us Bear fans dealt with this over the Duerson suicide. Mr. Seau's seems tragically similar. I'm getting to the point where I feel guilty rooting for the body jarring hits. R.I.P. Mr. Seau.ReplyDelete
"Dancing in his blood."
That's a tell, son. If I were sufficiently motivated to plow through the pile of shit that is about 99% of the comments of from "anonymous" and Greg Brown, I'd find the comment that you made previously with the same unattributed quote.
You're a gutless clown, get used to it.
"Your parents named you Democommie? Or did you have your name legally changed? A nom de guerre isn't much more informative than calling one's self anonymous."
Oh, Greggie, it's not a nom de guerre, it's a blognomen. I'm sorry if you don't like it, but, wel...shit, no I'm not sorry if you're upset, offended or anything else. Your feelings and your thinking matter far less to me than those of the little doggie who's sleeping peacefully on his little doggie bed about six feet from my chair. He only needs to honor his commitment not to shit in the house and we'll get along fine. I'm not confident that you'd be able to hold up your end of such a bargain.
It turns out that Mr. Seau's death might not have been completely unforeseeable. He was arrested for a domestic disturbance in 2010 and drove off a cliff after being released by police; they accepted his version of the events--that he fell asleep at the wheel.ReplyDelete
As a football analyst I was looking to a a little while ago opined, sometimes giving people a pass is the WORST thing you can do for them.
Awww, anonymouse is being cute, there, mikeb302000. I suspect your ol' pal weirdybeerdy using my real name. I guess the secret's out, now I'll have to install the electric fence, arm the claymores and put the roofmounted chaingun in play.ReplyDelete
