Seau reportedly announces retirement

Sounds like Junior Seau has retired ... again. The Patriots linebacker reportedly announced during a taping of Showtime's "Inside the NFL" on Wednesday that he is retiring after 20 NFL seasons. "Cris, I'm surfing," Seau told co-host Cris Collinsworth. "It's all over with the speeches. Whatever happens, I can say, honestly say, that that probably was my last game."

 

Seau was asked definitively if Sunday's loss to Baltimore was indeed his last game. "Yeah, that's going to be my last game," he replied.

 

Seau, who turns 41 in a week, spent portions of the last four seasons with the Patriots, including seven games this past season. He made 15 tackles.

 

Seau first announced his retirement in August 2006 saying he had "graduated" from the NFL. Four days later, he signed with the Patriots.

Ainge talks refs, Sheed on Big Show
By: DJ Bean

Danny Ainge, appearing on Wednesday's Big Show, addressed a wide range of topics regarding the Celtics, including Glen Davis' flagrant foul and Doc Rivers' ejection during Monday night's 102-96 loss to the Hawks. "We can't let a call build into worse," Ainge said. "A flagrant foul is two free throws and the ball. You can't let that escalate into five free throws and the ball." Added Ainge: "By the way, Doc was right [Davis' flagrant foul call was later rescinded], but does it justify him getting ejected? We could have used Doc in that game. He knows that." 

 

Staying with the topic of flagrant fouls, Ainge defended the erratic on-court behavior of Rasheed Wallace, saying: "Rasheed as a whole — all the things he does for [the Celtics] — we'll take." Ainge said that Wallace is "not going to change," adding: "Emotions are part of the game. We know that it's been a...
