imo it takes nothing more than reaching out and saying you are there for them. I also try to be a bit proactive. If I see someone post something really over the top depressing on facebook, I reach out and ask them how they are doing even if I haven't spoken to that person since high school. 99% of the time people are fine but appreciate that someone reached out to make sure.
damn they are announcing the FAU AD as their replacement for Moos today
edit I see the announcement has been postponed. What a tough situation to have to help folks with right away
hearbreaking situation. it's probably not fair, but i can't be the only one who's thought about mike leach's history.
wes tegg and I each played 10 years of organized tackle football; I know we’ve wondered about CTE, but we’ve never been overly concerned about it from a personal standpoint. But 3 out of 14 at the HS level is scary.
That said, there’s a lot of factors beyond (possible) CTE that could’ve caused this tragedy for the young man at WSU. I feel for his family; they must be in agony right now.
It was one of my first thoughts as well.
Leach’s history of sending a malcontent to a storage closet? Yeah, you may be the only one who’s thought about that in connection with this poor kid’s suicide.
I was thinking it probably had something to do with a girl.
A malcontent with a concussion. Concussions are tied to CTE. CTE is tied to suicidal thoughts. It's a logical progression.
That’s a stretch
Not that it matters, but the malcontent’s concussion came from getting knocked out cold during a bar fight
Yea I'm not arguing for Craig James. It just shows a history of not taking concussions seriously. I'm not saying he did anything wrong in this case but it's not absurd to have the thought cross your mind.
Why do we have to immediately blame this on something or someone?
that and how we treat sympathy as if it were a limited resource.
Suicide by rifle.
might be somewhat difficult to test his brain for cte when it's in pieces
What the fuck is wrong with you?
You missed out if you never took Maris' suicide course at USC.
One thing that always gets ignored in these discussions, do we really have the right to tell someone they must live? If they are miserable, what gives us the right to tell them they have to stay miserable?
This makes me realize what an escape cfb is for me. Poor kid, poor family, poor team.
Could someone have done something? Probably, but only if they were trained to see the warning signs. Did someone do something that sent him over the edge? Probably, but the same act to a non-sick person wouldn't have had near the consequences. That's the thing, you just never know. Afterwards it's easy to look back and say this and that should have tipped you but at the time it was nothing. Outsiders commenting on it will only make it tougher for those close to him to deal with it. One of the hardest things I've ever done was a go to a funeral for a good friend that killed himself. It was back in our hometown and I was his only current friend that everyone at the funeral. knew. I got countless "What happened?" questions. I just had to shrug. I was about 25 and in a fucking fog. It didn't seem real. Yes he had a fight with his fiance but a non-sick person doesn't shoot themselves over that. It wasn't her fault. She found a ton of blow and was like wtf, as she should have been. He went on a 2 day bender and killed himself when he came down. I know she blamed herself and outsiders said she/we could have done more but the further I get away from it the more I realize that's just not the case. He was sick and something was going to send him over the edge if he didn't get help. It just happened to be the argument with her. Do I wish one of us was trained to see the signs? Obviously. We weren't though but that doesn't make it our fault.
Just don't jump to blame a coach or someone close to him. That's just not fair. It may have been something they did to trigger him but that wasn't the root of the issue. He was sick and it's very likely they had no idea. They have enough burden to carry, don't add to it.
Yeah football doesn’t have much time left
Has the brain of a 60 year old
If a kid should ever be so unfortunate as to have me as a father, I would not let them play football.
I really wonder what we’llthink 15 or 20 yrs from now about football and/or CTE. Heartbreaking story. Especially the text from his mother.
yeah your kid would be born with brain damage so you wouldnt want to damage it any further
As you shouldn't
Always think what might have been had I not been injured and continued playing football in high school.
But a big part of me is thankful now after seeing some of the stats on this shit.
but yet that same family is still letting their other son play football
makes you think about what not being a pussy is like
what is the point of growing old anyways?
so your family gets to stop coming around as often as they used? Or so when you get too old you get put in a home or the system where you are completely forgotten until the leeches take everything you own and pile up CC debt until you die off and your family can finally move on
I guess Social Security is an advantage but none of us will get that anyways
Just live your life the way you want to live it. We’re all gonna die eventually
So your two option are grow old or commit suicide at 21?
Christ you’re an idiot.
or you can get killed by a drunk or distracted driver at age 20
or get terminal cancer at any age
or die suddenly when you are an infant
all of our bodies end up in the same place at the end of life
Imagine the unfortunate soul who let you have sex with her
i don't think i like nihilist dump
Dump with some #EatArbys posts itt
and unless you are famous or infamous all of the supposed memories you gain from growing old will all disappear when you die anyways so it just wastes away in the distance
I can't be any worse of a human being than Charles Manson, to start off at the lowest of low ends.
We should just all commit suicide at birth then.
or just enjoy life because you never know when it is gonna end. Do what you love because in the end we all have that same fate waiting for us.
is tmb what you love?
This is a disturbing new mutation in the dumpflower cycle.
But dump you’re the man. You care about a lot of stuff. And if I’m reading you right you’re saying you would rather burn hot than live life too scared to experience what you like.
theres a lot of interesting philosophy regarding the morality of bringing life into this world
imagine the child's sense of humor
What's the point of enjoying it if we are just brought into this world to die?
good point, shawn
His brother still plays QB and is committed to South Carolina
