A few weeks ago, we told you that the brother of Saints DL Anthony Hargrove had been stabbed and then later died at a Sarasota, Fla., hospital. Terrence Hargrove, who was 29, had been helping manage his brother’s affairs at the time of his death.

On Thursday, the New Orleans Times Picayune caught up with Anthony Hargrove, who said his older brother was the person who convinced him to play football and was the one who persuaded him to enter rehab when his life was in trouble.

"We spilled blood, sweat and tears together," Hargrove told the paper. "I still have days where I sit in the shower and just cry."

If you read into his history, you can see why Hargrove was so close to his brother. As the paper points out, he and his siblings were homeless by the time Hargrove was 6, and at age 9, their mother died from AIDS complications. He’s twice been suspended by the league because of substance abuse issues.

Now, he’s lost his brother.

"You're standing there trying to be strong for everybody, but your brother's gone," Hargrove said. "It was hard. I still hear his voice. I still see his smile … My faith is carrying me through this. Sometimes life isn't fair. You can't act out in anger or frustration. Just because you don't like what happened is not a reason to go backwards."

For now, it’s unclear how or why Terrence died. The results of an autopsy to determine whether he was murdered or committed suicide have not been released. But investigators have labeled it a “suspicious death.”

Anthony Hargrove still hurt by brother's death

It states that his brother is the one who got him to enter rehab.

Why does that need to be mentioned in a story talking about how Hargrove is struggling with his brother's death?  The fact I mis-read it and the fact the writer was talking about the kid that died makes it even worse.  There is a time and place for anything and these writers need to figure it out quickly.

The writer of this story is a moron, and that's actually a compliment compared to what I'm really thinking.   He starts off by saying if you read into the history we can see why Anthony and his brother were close and gives a couple damn good reasons for that... together and homeless at a young age and their mom dies when they were both very young.   Why the last line?  What does being suspended twice for substance abuse have to do with how close he was to his brother? Why did the writer even mention the suspensions?   It has nothing to do with his relationship with his brother or the grief the guy is suffering with today.....
