The death of legendary linebacker Junior Seau, as sad as it is for many, is nothing new for the remaining members of the 1994 San Diego Chargers.
Seau, who was found dead Wednesday of an apparent suicide, is now the eighth player of that team to die before the age of 45.
The 1994 Chargers, a group of gritty overachievers, are the only edition of the team to make the Super Bowl. But instead of that feat being the team's legacy, many are wondering about the string of freakish deaths that have haunted the AFC championship team.
"Not again," former Chargers running back Natrone Means told the San Diego Union-Tribune after one of the deaths in 2008. "It's crazy, just crazy, that we've had so many guys who have fallen. I can't make any sense of it. I've given up trying. You just hope you quit getting these random messages out of nowhere that another teammate has passed away."
It just goes to show that a bunch of neanderthals chasing an oblong basketball up and a cow pasture can kill you!
It goes to show nothing....except the man had emotional problems and wrongly decided that his own death would bring resolution.
At least that ball player wont be suffering anymore!
While I LOVE football it makes me wonder if it is worth it!? Talented, God gifted, professionals, that get tons of money, do not mean anything if you wind up in these situations. Outlaw all head shots is easy to do but these guys play to win and there will always be some head contact. And lets not forget the linemen. They are taking the same punishment, almost every play! Just a sad time for pro football.
Sad to hear, a great sportsman, dont remember him getting arrested, but it is to ponder, are we missing something, atheletic, good looking, hasmoney, fame,what was he thinking he was missing? final destination anyone?
