Ex-NFL star Junior Seau is found dead.

 

 

Just saw this on local news

 

Now his family can sue the NFL like the other assholes who say the NFL didn't protect them from head injuries. While they make the big money it's not an issue with them. After they are washed up & retired it wasn't their responsibility to figure out that there might be a risk of serious brain injury if you get knocked silly every few games. They could have refused to play the game because it's "dangerous". But instead they took the risk in exchange for the $$$$$$$. It IS professional football. After all these lawsuits are settled NFL football will be reduced to Powder Puff quality and won't be fit to watch. Kind of like NASCAR has become. Not that I waste my time watching that crap anymore :D But I do enjoy a good NFL game. But if they keep adding their "protection" rules.....

 

Just a few...

Well, something needs to be done. Concussions, painkillers, and steroids are obviously taking a toll on more than a few players in professional (and collegiate/amateur) sports.

 

The masses need their bread and circuses (and owner/investors their golden ducats), but the gladiators seem to be the one's paying the awful price.

 

RIP Junior.

Amen on the bread and circuses. And the NFL is the Center Ring under the Big Top. I just hope the NFL won't end up going too far.

20 years in the nfl is a hell of a long career, and i believe in the past he was fairly open about not wanting to give up the game. i wonder if that was what pushed him to suicide (if indeed he did)

 

i've known a few athletes in my time that couldn't give up their respective games. it's why i fully understand and never complain about them coming out of retirement over and over again or when given the chance ( like jordan trying baseball) trying to love out their various dreams. giving up something you've done your entire life too early .. especially something like sports when you start being told you are too old usually in your early 30's leaves you a lot of time to sit back and wonder what if

 

babe ruth when asked when he would retires said. when the rip the uniform off me.

and that is pretty much what he did, a lot of athletes do and need to do that.

but sometimes even that isn't enough

I agree...I wish they would not have roughing the kicker/passer penalties again like the old days, or at least only a 5 yard penalty at most.

Yeah. Brett Farve is a prime example of athletes returning to the sport after retiring. It was a joy to watch him play even after his prime. I didn't mind it when he had second thoughts about retiring. How many times did I see him get knocked down, only to get right back up? I can't see him suing the NFL later in life for not "protecting" him while he played in the league but I could be wrong...

Right, exactly. It's football for christ's sake. Now the league fines players for being too agressive when they tackle a player and hit them in a wrong way. It's like "rules of engagement". :D
