Rodney Harrison Suggests That Richard Seymour Should Commit Suicide

Bleacher ReportSenior Analyst ISeptember 10, 2009

I was watching The Dan Patrick Show today.  Patrick would interview former Patriot Rodney Harrison, whom had retired after this season.

During the conversation, the topic of the Richard Seymour trade came up.

Harrison stated that if he had been traded to the Raiders, he would drive to Chicago in order to climb the Sears Tower and jump off—Patrick laughed.

Harrison essentially said, 'If I was you, I'd kill myself.'

That because he would be unable to bear the situation in Oakland, which has improved.

I realize that some people, mostly sociopaths, will defend Harrison's comment as a "joke," or what they think he really intended.

All I know is that, all I heard was the belief that anyone associated with the Raiders should kill themselves.  And that would include me, as a fan.

Indirectly telling someone that they should consider suicide, is hideous and vile and Harrison should be universally condemned.

Harrison has been called "the Hitman," for his illegal NFL hits.  I think his new nickname should be, "POS."

I had only momentarily before Harrison's comment thought about an article on "Why Rodney Harrison Belongs in the Hall of Fame," and have now decided against it.

I will never watch or listen to Dan Patrick's show again, as he should have immediately stopped and condemned Harrison.

Patrick though, clearly has no sympathy for people in this country that are dealing with trying times, otherwise, he would have condemned Harrison.

Silence is complicity.
