Even though I hate the Colts (NE Fan) I always have respected Coach Dungy. He's a person of class, something that is rare in this day and age. My sympathies to his family, especially given the time of year. I guess this puts things into perspective, that there are more important things than sports.

So far the police have said there was no 'foul play' involved. An autopcy will be done. He was taking some classes at a nearby college. He is a big guy, about 6' 7". My first suspicion would be a bad heart or an aneurysm. Tony Dungy is a very good coach, well respected by his players, the league and fans. Although a relatively minor issue, one has to wonder how much of an affect this will have on the rest of Indy's season. I assume many football fans are saddened by Dungy's loss.

The Colts are the team I love to hate, but the fact that that is the case is a reflection of how good a coach Dungy is, and I could never root against him. That's horrible, to lose your son right before Christmas. My thoughts go out to the Dungy family.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, the medical examiner office is handling this as a suicide, which if true makes this tragedy even worse. The thought of an 18 year old taking his own life, would be heartbreaking for any family. Again if this is so, and I'm not saying it is, maybe it will become a wakeup call for football coaches to spend time with their families during the season and not work twenty hours days.

We are taking this news really hard here in Indianapolis. The team had a memorial service this morning and there was a memorial service at the church that the Dungys attend from 4:00 - 6:00 pm today (Friday).
My father died on Christmas Eve in 1997 so I can appreciate in a small way what the family is feeling. May God comfort them all.
