I was sorry Erika Slezak didn’t win her 7th Emmy, and I was furious at the way she was treated in that “tribute” that was mostly Susan Lucci patting herself on the back. At the very least, the two actresses should have come out together and had equal time. Mathison made it worse, shouldn’t even have been out there unless another OLTL actor came out. And then he took Erika Slezak’s line about the fans! I doubt it was purposeful, but it was one last slap in the face for ES and the OLTL fans. Not only was OLTL far superior to AMC in recent years, and the ratings were much higher. The only good thing was that ES got much more enthusiastic applause from the audience than Lucci. Have nothing against Susan Lucci. It was the horrible unbalance of the “tribute” that angered me.

Very well said and accurate. It was appalling. Few, if any, watching could think otherwise.

I am still shaking my head about the mess they call a tribute it was a lets all get down on our knees and praise susan lucci for her portrayal of ericka kane, Seriously susan I can name many, many, more characters on all my children who were better than you, how self centered that woman is, she carried on like it was only about her, News flash Susan Lucci you can’t act, the best actress was on your left that’s why she won 6 emmys. and by the way her name is ERICKA SLEZAK, IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, THE BEST ACTRESS IN DAYTIME, PUT HER IN PRIME PUT HER ON ANY TIME, BEST ACTRESS EVER, And who ever gave out those awards, is an ass who does not watch soaps.

Listened to your comments about video clips, and I don’t understand how there was any excuse not to have clips of OLTL when high quality montages, such as the one below, have been available on YouTube for months:

because the show could not secure the rights from ABC to show the clips – they put this together in about 2 weeks.

I don’t doubt what you are saying, but I don’t get it. Video clips, like the one I linked, are all over YouTube. So what if HLN had shown them? What’s Disney/ABC going to do? Sue HLN for their use when it promoted Disney/ABC? Isn’t the press allowed to use images and videos when discussing shows? Disney/ABC should have done nothing and been grateful for the free promotion. Litigation would have been stupid.

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
