He was such a badass, but it really pisses me off when I hear about that kind of stuff. Of course there could always be the what if it was a murder kind of thing. But if it was intentional. I must say what a piece of shit. I'm fed up with seein people that have accomplished so much and have made such a great life for themselves just to throw it all away. Its just sad...

Sad yes. But he obviously had serious problems few knew about. Suicide is strange. Ive been seriously down in the dumps but suicide was never close to being a serious thought. There must be something that shuts off for these unfortunate souls. Or turns on. Rip

And what do you know about his "great" life?

Evidently he committed suicide to piss everyone off. That's the most common reason people kill themselves. :rolleyes:

If you look into the Superbowl team he was on there is some strange finale destination stuff going on.
Seven players from that Super Bowl team have passed away before the age of 45.

• Five months after that Super Bowl, LB David Griggs drove his car off a freeway ramp and slammed into a sign pole. Subsequent tests would show that his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

• In 1996, RB Rodney Culver and his wife were aboard ValuJet FLight 592 from Miami to Atlanta when it crashed into the Everglades, killing all on board.

• In 1998, LB Doug Miller was struck by lightning while camping in Colorado. CPR was being performed on Miller when he was struck again by a second bolt.

• In 2008, C Curtis Whitley was found dead in his trailer in Texas. Whitley had a history of substance abuse and had twice been suspended by the NFL, and toxicology results pointed to an accidental overdose.

• Also in 2008, DE Chris Mims was discovered facedown on the bathroom floor of his Los Angeles apartment. An autopsy revealed an enlarged heart, and Mims weighed 456 pounds at his death.

• Earlier this year, DT Shawn Lee died from cardiac arrest brought on by years of complications with diabetes.

• On Thursday, Bush suffered a heart attack at his home in San Diego. Since retiring in 2002, friends say he had struggled with his weight.

Sad news indeed. With all due respect for Junior Seau but people who commit suicide are IMO selfish. They leave behind their loved ones, friends, fans and those who look up to him.

This article from SI could possible link his suicide to brain trauma/concussions from playing football all those years. Not sure, maybe he was depressed or financial issues. No know really knows.

For the record, he never won a Super Bowl. He played in 2 I believe but never got himself a much deserved ring. He will be missed! :sad:

As an accomplishment? Yes. But that's not everything. Everybody has their own life with all its problems. When you look at his, you only see football, and you only see it when you look. He was immersed in his life 24/7 and in all of it, with all the issues he might have had.

People who commit suicide usually do it because of the insufferable pain. Saying that they're selfish is ignorant at best.
