Hall of Fame limits Seau's daughter's comments to video
July 24, 2015 7:55 pm The Associated Press

CANTON, Ohio Junior Seau's daughter will be commenting only on a video when her late father enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 8.
Citing previous policies on posthumous inductions, the Hall is limiting Sydney Seau's comments to a video presentation about the former linebacker who committed suicide in 2012. Seau is one of seven men being inducted this year.

In a statement from Hall executive vice president Joe Horrigan, a 2010 policy was referenced Friday.

"The policy of the Pro Football Hall of Fame since 2010 regarding individuals enshrined posthumously provides for an expanded presenting video (longer than the videos of living inductees) followed by the traditional unveiling of the bronzed bust and no additional comments made from the podium," Horrigan said.

The 2011 induction used such a format when former Los Angeles Rams star Les Richter was inducted posthumously.

In a New York Times story Friday, Sydney Seau said: "It's frustrating because the induction is for my father and for the other players, but then to not be able to speak, it's painful. I just want to give the speech he would have given."

Let us never forget this was the reason the Saints and bounty gate happened. It is more likely than not that the NFL used the Saints to try to minimize the cost of the injury cases NFL veterans had filed.

They are still going out of their way to minimize
