    I hadn't heard about that. If true, then I agree with the decision to play the game today.

    I was more than a little troubled by the fact that they left his jersey hanging up -- I know it's tragic that he killed himself, but the man killed the mother of his child. Had he survived trying to take his own life, he'd be facing murder charges and life in prison.

    I'm iffy about how I feel about that person right now. On one hand, yeah, that's all true.

    On the other...I totally expect we're going to hear that his brain was degenerating to that of an Alzheimer's patient's, just like Junior Seau and Chris Henry.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.
