And I'm....ahead in the count! No thanks to my pitchers, lol. Batters are doing so-so, would like more.
Seau's death is officially a suicide? What's up with all that? That is the singlemost selfish act a person can perpetrate in my opinion. What about your spouse, your children, your parents and friends? Wow, on top of all that your money and business partners. It just blows me away. Not that I knew him or anything. I'm not crying about it....it just boggles my mind. Maybe there's more to it than we'll ever know.
With that said, maybe Roger Goodell is not that bad after all. His zero tolerance on the bounty scandal and the advancements for player safety should be seen differently in light of this most recent death of a former player.
Also, don't forget the case of former WWE superstar Chirs Benoit who killed his wife and young son before taking his own life. Sure maybe he was a 'roid freak but he also went all-out in his profession and suffered many a concussion and most insiders actually believe that this was the most prevalent factor in that case. Since then, Vince McMahon has instituted a Talent Wellness Policy for all former/current talent and if I'm correct has banned chair shots to the head. Infractions are penalized with fines and/ or suspensions.
Anyways, I think society as a whole should start to finally realize that concussions in any sports or endeavor are a really big deal and should be dealt with the utmost seriousness.
