The NFL Network and The New York Times put the Pro Football Hall of Fame to shame in Junior Seau case; they put family first

I am tackling and throwing the Pro Football Hall of Fame On The Bench for not allowing Sydney Seau to speak on behalf of her father, Junior Seau.

Seau was suffering from excruciating pain from head trauma committed suicide, in May 2012. Prior to his suicide, Seau told his daughter, Sydney, to speak on his behalf if he made into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

However, citing a 5-year-old policy of not allowing people to speak on behalf of deceased inductees, the Hall would not allow Sydney Seau to fulfill her father’s wish by speaking on his behalf at his Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony.

Both the NFL Network and The New York Times gave Sydney what the Pro Football Hall of Fame did not. They stepped in and gave Sydney Seau the opportunity to give her speech on their respective platforms.
