Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

Hey, Dolfan here (a little ashamed to admit). Just wanted to stop by and say my condolences. It just doesn't seem real. Sean was an amazing athlete and contributed so much to the sport. Every football fan loved to watch him and every opponent feared him.

It deeply saddens me to think about his daughter who will have to grow up without her real father, his fiance who lost her beloved future husband, and his parents who lost their son.

I am disgusted with the media as mentioned in another thread. Not just the media but almost anything I read, on any other football board, his past mistakes are brought up somehow. Yes, the guy made a few mistakes but come on, show some respect, the guy was just murdered in front of his fiance and daughter and they are putting him down, it's almost as bad as the murder itself.

Sean and his family are in my prayers. God bless you all.

Andy Garcia: Taylor saved niece's life - 11/28/2007 - MiamiHerald.com

Quote:
''His heroic action on that tragic night saved their life and is a testament to his humanity and courage,'' Garcia said in his statement, which was provided to The Miami Herald through his manager, Joanne Colonna. ``His spirit will live forever, in our hearts and through the legacy of his achievements and the family he leaves behind.''



Check out what Andy Garcia had to say. Pretty impressive.

Wow I had no idea his girlfriend was related to Garcia.

Touching words indeed.

I think it's sad that more people (I'm pointing at the media) aren't picking up on the fact that Taylor died while protecting his family.

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

I'm with you on that, Matty. What bigger indicator of character is there then the willingness to sacrifice your life so that others may live? That's the reason for my new sig...

As a Cowboys fan, I just wanted to express my heartfelt condolence to all Redskins fans and the team on the sudden death of Sean Taylor, a wonderful player and talent who death has snatched abruptly from his family, friends, teammates and fans. May God give everyone the fortitude to bear the loss.

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

Yeah, I still think about him often too. It's still so sad, he was on the right track personally and was going to be one of the all-time greats professionally.

Yet, so many of those who society can do without are still with us after we lose one of the great among us.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons I'll never trade in Madden 08, it's too tough to make players now and that just isn't the same. Sean is the first guy I get in every franchise I start.

Same here, I think its almost harder to hit home because we didnt really know him...he was one of those rare players that I think people just got attached too (I think Cooley is the other current Skin that people get attached too as well)....hopefully we bring it home for Sean this season.

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

I'm glad someone brought this thread back up, I miss him and I'd like to continue talking about him. I hope life is getting better for his girlfriend and his daughter though, they are feeling the biggest impact of all this.

Good Call GT!
It IS wierd that someone presumably, none of us knew could and still does cause so much unrest. It's wierder still, but NFL football changed that day for me. It's just, somehow, not as good

It's fine if you feel that way, but obviously others don't. I think it will be a long time before some can "let it go". Where's the harm in talking about him?
