Re: Junior Seau dead?
Jim Trotter of SI.com reports that he spoke with the late Junior Seau in March about the perception that commissioner Roger Goodell was making the game too soft with his enhanced enforcement of player safety rules.
"It has to happen," he said. "Those who are saying the game is changing for the worse, well, they don't have a father who can't remember his name because of the game. I'm pretty sure if everybody had to wake with their dad not knowing his name, not knowing his kids' name, not being able to function at a normal rate after football, they would understand that the game needs to change. If it doesn't there are going to be more players, more great players, being affected by the things that we know of and aren't changing. That's not right."
All generalizations are dangerous.
