Seau died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of 43 last May. His son said he suffered from wild mood swings, irrationality, forgetfulness, insomnia and depression that got progressively worse over time.

Brian McCarthy, spokesman for the National Football League, told 10News in a written statement, "Our attorneys will review it (the lawsuit) and respond to the claims appropriately through the court."

An examination of Seau's brain by federal health officials determined that he suffered from a debilitating brain condition common to people who have suffered repetitive head injuries.

I don't generally post comments until further into the threads, but imho this is just STUPID.
