11. When the news

first broke on CNN, one of Junior Seau's close friend mentioned that on the phone and unfortunately CNN cut away at that moment to cover newt's speech.

2. I know we don't know anything yet

but I'd never dismiss all the headshots and potential concussions. Some of these guys can get pretty messed up due to them.

7. Junior dished out the punishment

and rarely received it

I recall he drove his car off a cliff and some thought intentionally. Too bad he didn't get the help he needed then

3. Oh man, sad news.

It's often extremely difficult for pro athletes to make the transition to civilian life. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

12. My first thought when I read the circumstances. Did they find a note or something?

I haven't read anything yet about why, just speculation.
