As Dave had requested, tissue from his brain was sent to be tested at the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy. Those results won't be available for at least another month.
Because his meager belongings are still under bankruptcy claim, the locks on Dave's apartment have been changed, and his 21-year-old son Brock was recently denied entry.
A week after Dave's death, sports blog Deadspin posted an interview he had done with journalist Rob Trucks the previous November. In the candid chat, Dave professed he never expected to live beyond age 42, retold the story of Buddy Ryan and the racial slur — an account angrily denied by Rex Ryan — and even took aim at his own family for scheduling his father's funeral on Dave's birthday.
Asked what she thought of the interview, Yvette doesn't hesitate: "It was stubborn, confrontational, a little bit full of crap."
She squeezes more affection into those words than one might think possible. "That was the real Dave — the Dave I knew."
R.I.P. Dave. I hope you now have the peace you didn't have before.
I too had a friend of mine that played for the Jets in the 80's, Tom Baldwin. He too took his own life. Very sad indeed.
His downward spiral started in the incident at the Morris Inn on the campus of the University of Notre Dame - the altercation with his wife resulted in disgrace and ND dumping him from the board and blacklisting him. That's the thanks he got from ND. If it wasn't for how ND treated him, I am convinced he would not have spiraled downward like he did. So sad, so very very sad.
my cousin johnny sawyer played for buffalo bills in the 80''s he liked dave duerson commited same act .
