    This is a very sad story, but I don't understand why it was the leading story on KSL last night. He isn't from Utah is he? Or is he? They said he had a strong influence on many polynesian athletes in Utah, but they never explained why. Altogether it was an incomplete story that didn't give much explanation of anything. Next time, KSL needs to do a better job of explaining why this story is relevant to their viewing audience and why it was the leading story on KSL.

    BTW, I feel really sorry for his family and his mother crying on TV was heartbreaking. So sad for everyone left behind.

    I have a friend who was in the NFL and he said many of the former players become pain medicine addicted they can't sleep without them, they have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning, and sometimes during they day he would fall asleep also to the point he started taking the city buss instead of driving. I meet some of Jr Seau's relatives who live in Utah and they all say he was a amazing guy. This is very sad, he still had so much to offer the world. Someone needs to keep up with these guys after they retire and make sure they are not to this point.

    Such a tragic loss of a relatively young life. What a shame that such a character has been lost to the world. I think of all the good he could have accomplished by being put to work with children and youths in under-privileged areas.

    God Bless you Junior.

    Initially I thought it was terrible that they show Jr's mom crying hysterically, but as I thought about it my view changed. I think it's crucial that those that are contemplating suicide see how astronomic and tragic their actions can be on their loved ones left behind. Hopefully, all this will save at least one life and much better yet, many lives.
