A link, one of many frown

SAN DIEGO -- Oceanside Police have apparently responded to Junior Seau's home on South The Strand in Oceanside. The Chargers Hall Of Famer killed himself, a witness who heard the news from police told 10News.

Oceanside Police confirmed that something is going on in the area but would not give details other than to say further information is coming.

A witness told 10News that police responded with a large presence at the location at about 10 a.m. and closed the roadway.

The witness also told 10News that a gunshot was heard inside Seau's home.

10News has not confirmed reports of the gunshot.

UTSandiego.com reports Oceanside police responded to a report of a shooting at Seau's beachfront home. A 911 call reporting a possible suicide was made to police at 10 a.m., a dispatcher told the newspaper.
Citing a law enforcement source at the scene, tmz.com says police believe Seau shot himself

I saw where another former NFL player did the same thing recently.
Left a note that he wanted his brain studied because he felt all the hits to the head caused his mental issues and suicidal thoughts/depression.
Could this be the same for Junior?

Why not start the study on his brain while he was alive and synapses firing then ? They they'd have a real basis of comparison from live brain to deceased on the same brain. Meh I think he was fighting too many demons and they came calling

He was certainly a legend in San Diego.  You have to wonder why he did it....

Wow, this really came out of nowhere. Terrible tragedy for the SD community with the passing of one of the Charger greats. RIP Junior.

Sadly this is looking like a pattern.  Football as well boxing is more brutal as the years pass on their battered skulls. I wish boxing would go to headgear in all amateur and pro matches.   Our brainsare no doubt our most precious asset.  This neurologist  things all football players have some sort of brain damage:
