Yes, it's true. Very sad. Didn't even know he had pancreatic cancer (which is one of the worst you can have)

I'm going to edit the thread title

I dont know whats more surprising. That he died or that no media seems to notice. RIP Gene.

Found it on NBC Sports. He will be missed, his contributions to Pro Football as a player and as one who tended to the best interest of all players are imeasurable.

Not that it's of any real importance right now, but I guess Troy Vincent takes over for now

Wow, like everyone else has said, I didn't know he was battling cancer. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

Not exactly how we all thought this might play out. Aside from the real issues involving his death the power struggles within the union set a pretty intersting context for this development. I am guessing there are some people in the NFL front offices who see this as a positive development labor wise even though it is obviously an awful development for his friends and family and really the football world in general.

What about Kevin Mawae, or are his presidential duties above performing the labor of an Executive director?
