    Speculation is a suicide. Shame.

    That's terrible news. Hate to speculate, but years of head trauma can do terrible things. That's why I'm glad Goodell is trying to make the game safer.

    I don't want to get ahead of anything, but if this is a suicide I wonder what the debate is going to look like with CTE and the long term outlook for football. This is very high profile.

    I'm curious too. If reports are accurate a gun shot wound to the chest would lead me to believe he wanted his brain left to study.

    I wonder why ESPN hasn't reported on this yet? Its 12:03 right now and TMZ and Yahoo have had this for over an hour and yet ESPN doesn't even have an "Unconfirmed Report" on their site.

    Really sad. He has 3 kids and I guess he texted them all yesterday that he loved them. Was found by his housekeeper this morning.

    I think they're just being cautious. After the Joe Paterno false news, I think that's a smart move.

    I hate to read of this. Such a shame.

    I like football but I think the game needs fundamental changes -- not just more padding and game-delaying rules.

    I just read that now 8 players from the 1994 Chargers Super Bowl team have died before the age of 45

    That's an article from December on the other 7. Some sad stuff in there.

    Has to fundamentally change at some point in many ways. No contact practices, no kickoffs, no punting. If that won't be enough then I'm not sure what else you can do.

    I think back to the Bengals on Hard Knocks, the episode where they did the Oklahoma drill. At the time I thought it was awesome, now all I can think is how it was a bunch of completely unnecessary blows to the head.

    Such a sad end to a wonderful life. Football needs to take even more action to protect the players--especially the youngest ones.
