    TMZ thinks so, but can’t confirm it, but is going to report it anyway.

    Shot himself the same way Duerson did so they could examine his brain. The NFL is in a real bind with the brain injury lawsuits that are coming.

    cycledan, is that confirmed? did he leave a note saying so?

  • cycledan

    Police Chief Frank McCoy said Seau’s girlfriend reported finding him unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest and lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. A gun was found near him, McCoy said.

    From the AP article. Usually when people kill themselves it is a shot to the head since it is faster. So I just assume that he was copying Duerson but that is just me speculating. I didn’t read anything about a suicide note.

    A tip for the kids out there. If you’re gonna shoot yourself in the head, you’d better do it right. Mrs Groin has taken care of several patients over the years who have shot their faces off and survived. Your quality of life will be pretty low if you’re nothing more than a neck with a feeding tube from the shoulders up.

    I’m not sure what the pint is. Seems a little callous, considering someone died.
