    There is a policy in place. One that has been in place since before Junior even took his own life. The policy states any posthumous inductions won't have a speech, just a video tribute.

    I honestly see no reason an exception should be made. Feel free to try to change my mind.

    Look how they began sniping at the nfl immediately after they were denied. Plus the ongoing lawsuit.

    but the big deal is that the daughter was told by the hof that should would be able to speak and then they revised it to no.

    That the daughter not being allowed to speak should be a non-issue. Instead I'm seeing people cry about it like it is some huge injustice.

    In taking his own life, Seau committed murder in The Lord's eyes.

    The nfl should remove all evidence of his existence like the wwe did with hulk hogan
