Junior Seau dead, probable suicide

North County Times reporting Seau "found dead by a housekeeper of a gunshot wound to the chest."

Junior Seau Dead Cops Investigating Shooting

Cops are currently at Seau's home just outside San Diego. Seau was 43-years-old ... and leaves behind 3 kids and an ex-wife.

Seau was a beast in the NFL -- skyrocketing to fame thanks to his explosive play with the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. The USC standout was selected in the first round of the NFL draft in 1990 and played in the league for 20 years.

Seau was involved in a car accident back in 2010 when he drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA hours after he was arrested for allegedly attacking his girlfriend. Seau later said he was not trying to kill himself ... insisting he had fallen asleep at the wheel.

The NFL is bracing itself for a multi-billion dollar class action that could cripple the sport.

In the running game you have guys in relatively confined spaces running into each other. You run greater risks for broken limbs and such in the mass of bodies underneath, but the speeds are incredibly slow.

In the short passing game, however, the rules are designed to allow free movement and create speed. These guys are just launching themselves into each other over the middle of the field.

I wonder if we won't start to see rules shaded back towards encouraging the more deliberate, power football that we used to see. I really do think it would help improve the head trauma issues.

If they can study his brain and check for things like concussion syndrome... he may end up being the poster boy for post football health problems.

Former USC and San Diego Chargers football star Junior Seau was found dead Wednesday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head at his Oceanside home.

His girlfriend found him dead in his bed, according to law enforcement sources.

Oceanside police didn't immediately have any comment about what was happening at Seau's home but are expected to provide details soon.

Television footage showed police swarming around the home. The San Diego coroner's office could not confirm any information.

In 2010, Seau was involved in an accident in which his sport-utility vehicle went off a beachside cliff. The accident occurred after he was arrested in Oceanside on suspicion of domestic violence.

Seau also played for the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots.

Not the first time.

SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla. — The words came up on Alicia Duerson’s cellphone as blithely as text messages typically do, but this one was different: her former husband, the former Chicago Bears star Dave Duerson, asked her to donate his brain for research.

In a suicide note, Dave Duerson repeated an earlier request he made in text messages to have his brain donated for research.
Enlarge This Image

Duerson in 1989 with Chicago, where he won the first of his two Super Bowl titles. In 1999, he showed his organ donor card at a memorial for Walter Payton, who died from liver disease.

She texted back and heard nothing, then called their son, Tregg, who was just ending his workday as a bank analyst in Chicago. They called again and got voice mail.

The next and last message they received from Dave Duerson was meant for them, their family and perhaps all of professional football. It was written in his hurried hand, repeating his text message in case it had not been received, and found in the South Florida condominium where he placed a gun to his chest and shot himself to death last Thursday.

“Please, see that my brain is given to the N.F.L.’s brain bank.”

Players are also just bigger and faster and stronger too.

Who knows, maybe nothing will come of it because people want football at any cost. But this guy was a superstar. People who only casually follow football know who he is. Given the timing of bountygate and all the concussion issues, it's certainly going to bring the issue to the front even more.

I'm no expert, but I don't believe it's the big shots that are the concern, it's the prolonged battle in the trenches that is causing the most damage. Not that big shots aren't having potential long term effects on guys, but the constant brain rattling is the focus.

Guess we are going to find out about his financials here in the coming weeks. Sorry to his family, but he just hurt them more by taking this way out if it was suicide. They should not see any money from the insurance.

My first thoughts were steroids and/or concussions probably played a part in this.
