Sad day in San Diego
Perhaps the OP could change the thread title to something more sensitive.
Or at least spell his name right. It's Junior.
Sad news, but can't say it's a shock being he had the "accident" in 2010 where he drove his car into the Pacific Ocean. Ironic it happens today when the NFL hands down punishements to the players involved with the Saints Bounty case. I remember idolizing him as a kid, he was "cool" played football, was a San Diego surfer, had his own clothing line. He seemed to have it all...
Why? That's how the news media is headlining the story.
Even though not a Chargers, Dolphins, or Patriots Fan.
Still....this goes well beyond any team thing.
HORRIBLE news. Everything I've ever heard, read, or seen about this 20 year NFL great was that he was a 1st Class person first and one heck of a player second.
Lot's of speculation the chest infliction was to preserve his brain for concussion studies...
Sad news. Wow!
Did you see the previous title? I don't think the media said he "offed" himself.
You obviously didn't see the original.
That 1995 Super Bowl team is cursed. RIP Junior.

No, I didn't see that. My bad.
Didn't know all that context.
Yes, a sad loss, and what a player- for two decades!
As to "sensitive" wording, does someone object to the cause of death being specified?
I feel that it's healthy thing. We too often mince around difficult subjects with stupid euphemisms.
Welcome to the thread, please read previous posts.
Fortunately, you missed the original description of the sad cause of death...not a tasteful terminology. It got updated thankfully.
RIP Junior. Almost certainly CTE.
For those who aren't familiar...
