It's more selfish to ask him to live in pain like that.
99 out of 100 times, someone who calls suicide selfish and tries to paint someone who commits suicide in some kind of evil manner is a bible thumper who's been brainwashed into thinking suicide is the ultimate sin and someone shouldn't have control over his/her own life. They've never even tried to understand how fucked up someone is mentally when he/she commits suicide, but since their pastor said its evil, they follow right along.
To think that Junior Seau, arguably the most active and physical player of his generation at a position of excessive and routine brutal contact, never had a single concussion in a game rife with examples of how players typically played through them or were failed to be diagnosed for the unseen sickness simply because it was never officially noted on an injury report is some of the worst deductive logic I have ever witnessed.
Again, sub-concussion syndrome is a new study, but the initial findings of devastating.
It sucks for the family and friends. It does and I understand not being sure why someone would do it. Instead of ignorantly passing judgment, maybe you should ask yourself why someone with everything he had going for him, as you mentioned, would opt to end the fabulous life with people who obviously loved him. Think about just how bad the pain must have been for him to determine that suicide was his best recourse.
I swear there's always some douchebag who gets off on making a dead celebrity wrong after suicide. Your life sucks. I get it. But this thinly veiled schaudenfreude is fucking disgusting.
lol rascal, you'd think someone that made the Loser Thread would have some empathy for someone that committed suicide.

lol 95%. lol stereotyping. lol loling the exact same thing you loled
Seeing that Junior Seau, for one reason or another, felt that he was better off killing himself than living the rest of his life, I'd say you'd have to be a pretty miserable person if you wanted to trade your life for his.
vanders argument seems to be that one is better off as a brain damaged millionaire than a healthy adult.
Curious, how much would a concussion be worth to you, vander?
don't know. and i'm not the one who chose to play football, or box. why not ask these players if they would choose not to play if they could do it all over again. now back to my question, how 'brain damaged' was he? he seemed to be a fully fuctional human being from what i've read. and how much brain damage justifies suicide?

What does choosing to play have to do with anything? Concussions are concussions, whether one chooses to play or not.
Is there any evidence that suicide is more common with ex NFL players than the general population?
Is it possible that he had other emotional issues/ problems not related to physical concussions that was the underlying cause of the suicide? Seems like everyone is already making the assumption that that is not possible.
pretending you give two shits about Seau's family or friends
