Re: Junior Seau dead
I think people are a little presumptuous to assume his suicide was a direct result of being a long term football player. I mean obviously the correlation and recent findings would make that a reasonable hypothesis for his dark depression as proven by past players. I still think it's going a little far to question being a fan of the sport because of the general murkiness of suicide and depression by nature.
All kinds of people go through times of bad depression because of family relationships or a number of reasons. I will say though that the decision to self a chest wound is a decent indicator that he believed his recent suffering was due to brain damage. However, severely depressed people don't have the most rational or trustworthy thought processes anyhow
