Because unlike you, who obviously just loves to jump to conclusions, NFL Network still has some dignity and integrity and standards when it comes to reporting news and they want to get as many facts as possible together before they go shooting their mouths off and possibly report something which is later found to be erroneous, which you would no doubt viciously attack them for, screeching something to the effect of "HOW DARE THEY!!! THEY SHOULD HAVE WAITED UNTIL THE FACTS WERE IN BEFORE RECKLESSLY REPORTING AND SHOOTING THEIR MOUTHS OFF!!!!"

There's a rule on DVD Talk. A new member (defined as anyone with less that 1,000 posts) can't be critical of a senior member's post.

Re: Junior Seau is dead

The San Diego Union Tribune said he shot himself in the heart.

If that blurb about the suicide note is true, he must have been really depressed or out of mind to say his brain needs to be studied. Willie McGinest said on NFL Network that he attended a USC shin dig a few weeks ago with him and he seemed fine.

I don't know alot of about the symptoms of depression, but I guess some people are pretty good at hiding it.

Actually, from what i've seen TMZ is pretty accurate about things like this.

Re: Junior Seau is dead

TMZ was the 1st to report the Michael Jackson death.

But having worked in live sports TV for the last 12 years and knowing alot of the Producers at NFL Network, they won't report news off a source like TMZ. They would need a more official source like the AP or a team release.

Re: Junior Seau is dead

Just saw the clip of his Mom's press conference. That was incredibly sad to see.

I have mixed feelings about suicide. Obviously Seau had issues, but IMO it's such an incredibly selfish act. If his brain was all fucked up, he should have gotten help.

Re: Junior Seau is dead

Really sad news. Article I read said Dave Duerson shot himself in the chest rather than the head so his brain could be studied so this could be a similar thought.

Coinciding with the bounty suspensions is another sobering thought.

Re: Junior Seau is dead

It seems like he just retired yesterday. What a shame and a waste of a life to die so young.

Yeah, he was at USC's spring football game three weeks ago. He was smiling and taking pictures with players and fans. It's crazy to think he's gone. As a lifelong fan of Trojan and Charger football this one hits close to home. I hope people look at this and the aftermath and seek out the help they need if they're in a dark place.

Damn. Always going to be a Charger, but he played his heart out those last few years with my Patriots. RIP.

I've seen quite a few comparisons to Duerson already. I guess that explains why he shot himself in the chest and not head which was curious to me.

Re: Junior Seau is dead

Been reading several sources which suggest Goodell had Seau murdered to take attention away from the fact that the NFL has refused to release the evidence they claim to have about the Saints bounty scandal. Wouldn't put it past the NFL or Goodell to do this. Developing...

24-48 hours. But I suspect he's a RBM anyway, so he's probably ok with it.
