    Unhappy Tony Dungy's son James is dead - committed suicide.


    Report: Dungy's 18-year old son dead

    The Hillsborough County Sheriff's department is confirming the death of 18-year-old James Dungy.

    Dungy, the son of former Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy, was found dead in his North Tampa apartment by his girlfriend early this morning. A death investigation is going on now. At this time, it appears suicide is the cause of death.


    At this time of year - man, this is bad. I really feel for the Dungy family.
    R.I.P.

    This was his Myspace. There was some weird **** in it.
    Apparently he liked Randy Moss.

    Excellent article on what kind of man Dungy is.

    This is what a MAN is. This is how a MAN behaves.

    Dungy always came across as a great coach and a great family man. Always respectful and never stooped down to a level that was below excellent. Such a class act that man is and i have the utmost respect for him.

    Sometimes when your 18 you don't realise that you will think completely different when you are older say 21. I know I always look back a few years and "..what was I thinking?...Things always change. That is the one consistancy of life.Unfortunately, 18 is too young to understand that reality.

    ofcourse on a more cynical side:It makes no sense to kill your self when your dad is a millionaire,unless you are on drugs and can't handle the ups and downs or you are repressed about your sexual orientation.Maybe he took the Colts and gave the points versus the Chargers....It is sad when a parent outlives their child no matter what the cause, it is still a shock to the system..

    ESPN article now saying it was painkiller overdose.

    Same article gives good description of how many players will be sitting out.

    "record-setting receiver Marvin Harrison, Pro Bowl linebacker Cato June and starting right tackle Ryan Diem"

    "Also expected to sit are defensive linemen Corey Simon and Robert Mathis, who both have foot injuries. Pro Bowl safety Bob Sanders (back) and defensive tackle Montae Reagor (knee) may take Saturday off, too."

    "And Manning, who has never missed a start in his eight NFL seasons, might not play much."

    Polian said Manning has a sore knee then Manning denied it later in the week.

    Looks like the Seattle game will be like the Denver game of last year possibly. Colts go in and try to keep their players healthy. I wonder if Seattle does the same thing.

    No. Seattle is playing for home field advantage.

    This is a great post. I agree the man is the definition of class.
