RIP.



It's sad that injuries received from the sport that he apparently loved may have contributed to the alleged suicide.

How awful for his wife and child. A good friend's wife killed herself one year ago and to see him and his children go through that is a memory I won't soon forget.



Pray for his family.

Tragic. I'll wear my old No Fear stuff with a bit of melancholy.

Suicide, a permanent solution to a temporary problem, and the most selfish, cruel and cowardly way to go. They think nothing of what that will do to those who love and care for them, only of their own issues.

I was wondering how long it would take before the "cowardly, selfish" remarks started.

If it was physical pain he was experiencing, there are a number of drugs available (either through prescription or otherwise) to deal with this.

Default There's more to it than that...

I agree with your statement, but everybody feels down now and again. Moates' might have been suffering from a psychological condition that was a result of the pain from his past injuries, compounding his predicament.

That's why it's important for some people diagnosed with these conditions to stay on their medication because bad things can ensue if they don't. Don't be so quick to judge.
