What the hell man.

Initial reports are of a self inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Damn Junior, rest in peace.

That's a shame. Multiple concussions can fuck your head up. Lots of studies happening right now on just this issue. There is a link between the number of times you get your bell rung and long-term depression, dementia and a host of other nasty mental afflictions. RIP.

Good point, I didn't even think about that connection.

I just saw the news conference with his mother, it was just terrible.

The moral implications of publicly funding a brain damage company has entered the stadium debate here in Minnesota. Shit like this, the bounties, the fact that the local team led the league in incarcerations... none if it helps their image.


Lost in that bullshit statement I just made is the fact that these are real people, and in most cases generous with their earnings, sometimes even leaders in their communities.

RIP Junior.
