PFT Live: Remembering Junior Seau and the Saints player suspensions

Two stories dominated the football world on Wednesday and we’ll be talking about both of them on Thursday’s PFT Live.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune will be on the program to talk to Mike Florio about the death of Junior Seau. Acee will talk about Seau’s career in San Diego, his contributions to the Chargers franchise and the response to his death around his first NFL team.

Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune will also be on the show. Triplett will share the reaction to Wednesday’s announcements of suspensions for Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove as well as how the Saints plan to deal with the absences of Vilma and Smith when the regular season rolls along.

You can watch it all live at noon ET.

    can we not lump in this Saints garbage with Junior Seau. A little less attention to the “Aints” and a little more to Seau. Sick and tired of hearing about the cheating Aints. lets talk about something that matters. anyone who saw Luisa Seau talk yesterday has to have felt their heart break. Very sad.

    I liked Silver’s piece on Seau, maybe you guys should touch upon on it unless Acee has better anecdotes – I think the planet will appreciate it. Of course, they can easily go read it.

    Junior was one selfish person at the end. Okay, my four kids, wife, and mother would be better off without me. He is too big a boy too let this ” i wanna please everyone and if i dont, it hurts” excuse to off himself. He did not have $ problems. If he cared about his family he would have gotten some help. He could have gotten the best help with the money he had. I dont get this selfish act.

    I’m sorry, how did the Saints cheat? A bounty system isn’t cheating, Spygate was cheating, big big difference. The Saints played fair on the field, otherwise the refs would have called penalties. Besides, I don’t think any NFL player would have seriously tried to take out another player for a $1500-$10000 dollar reward when they would get fined $25ooo+ for a cheap shot. Give it up already.

    I understand your comments based on your rational viewpoint. But you really have to understand his brain wasn’t working rationally. Yelling at someone with a disorder for being stupid for having a disorder really doesn’t make sense.

    I just saw a clip on TV where reporters are questioning the father of Seau. He was visibly upset and really didn’t have much to say. Why show clips like this, when no real news comes of it, other then seeing a father devastated? The media can be a real bunch of jackals sometimes.

    I remember watching Seau, he was a real beast.

    It’s sad that people can have the world in their hand, but can’t see it that way.

    Whether it was due to football or not, there were indications Seau had a mental illness. In Canada many athletes (Current and former) have come forward recently about mental illness and their struggles.

    Hopefully tragedies such as that of Seau and others, can get people that have issues to ask for help.
