Newsflash... Dave Mirra (suicide in February) had CTE, the brain damage caused by multiple blows to the head

Back in February the shocking news of the 41 yr old mutiple record holder committing suicide was astonishing.. http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2016/02/dave-mirra-has-left-us-he-needed-out.html

In a 2006 crash, he told The Washington Post, “I basically fell 16 feet straight to my head.” He was also hit by a car at age 19, suffering a fractured skull, and he was into boxing.

But having watched the movie Concussion, about the multiple concussions resulting in brain damage, with the typical eventual results, memory loss, erratic behavior, impeded speech, depression and regularly leads to dementia and suicidal thoughts, it now all figures logically that symptoms + suicide = CTE

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/02/03/sports/football/nfl-brain-disease-cte-concussions.html has gathered the list of the NFL players that all ended the same way, after a pro career of brain damage that resulted from years of concussions, most if not all, suicided from the mental distress caused by the brain tissue damage. The story of Dave Duerson is so stunningly ironic, it was covered by Mens Journal in 2012... Duerson was picked to be on the NFL pension board, and shut down NFL players claims for medical and financial recompense, and he didn't realize, he too, was one of the afflicted former NFL players that would suicide... though, at the last, he knew it was the CTE damage, and instead of destroying his brain with a gunshot, he shot himself in the chest, a move Seau repeated. Just to get the evidence against he NFL claims that playing football wasn't the cause. http://www.mensjournal.com/magazine/dave-duerson-the-ferocious-life-and-tragic-death-of-a-super-bowl-star-20121002
