    You are an inspiration to generations of athletes. A shining example of strength, skill, determination and philanthropy. You kept class in a sport rife with selfishness and greed.

    There is nary a better man around let alone in professional sports. You will be dearly missed Tiaina Baul Seau.

    Stankys got a point that must have been terrible to clean up. If it were me I’d have the carpet and upholstery replaced.

  9. Rachel Says:

    He is a reminder of the need to take a closer look at retired athletes for signs of permanent brain injurys that can lead to tragedies like this. Could his death have been prevented with better testing and psychological counseling, we will never know.

    I just wanted to say that Jr. Seau was my hero for a long time. As a kid I had his jersey and every year for 3 or 4 years in a row on halloween I wore it with my shoulder pads and chargers helmet. I loved to watch him play. My heart goes out to his family. I’ll never forget him. He was one of the greatest football players of all time.
