Today I am taking on the task of authoring a piece on a very sensitive subject.
I am not attempting to strike a chord with anyone in particular; however, I realize that due to the nature of this topic I may very well be met with some criticism.
Let me preface this by admitting that I have never experienced the loss of a loved one due to a suicide. To be quite honest, I could not even imagine the emotional agony that accompanies anyone who has endured this type of a loss.
I offer my deepest sympathy to those affected by such a tragedy.
I am writing this due to the misconception that I believe has surrounded the NFL, the sport of football, and the integrity of the NFL fan following the untimely and tragic death of former San Diego Charger/New England Patriot Junior Seau.
