Re: Arena League football player dies of spinal cord injury...

So tragic. I'm kind of bothered by the fact that everyone (media) has to point out he was a former NFL lineman. It's almost as if they're trying to say this is a bigger deal because he used to play on the biggest football stage of all, the NFL. Even if he had never gotten the slightest taste of the NFL it's still just as sad.

Seriously. I mean it's a human life! The fact he played in the NFL should not be the focus.

Sad, but it was bound to happen someday. Football players are just so big, strong and fast nowadays.

Very Sad, for sure. It looked like such a routine tackle, but ussually ones like that are the worst.
