Today, Pat Tillman is a hero in a way that no mere football player can ever be. Sometimes I think we spend too much time cheering on the wrong guys.

May God bless Pat and his family, and may God bless America.

What a waste of a human life ... war truly is the greatest evil on this earth. Peace to Pat Tillman and his family.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing, which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than him." -- John Stewart Mill (1806-1873)

RIP

It's people like Mr. Tillman who are the heart and soul of our country. When I first heard about him going to Iraq I thought about how strongly he must feel about serving his country. It takes a person with some very strong beliefs in my opinion to risk your life for your country while turning down a chance to live comfortably by playing a game. My prayers and respects go out to his friends and family. RIP

War is sometimes the result of the greatest evils on earth and not the greatest evil itself.

I'm not going to debate this here. Pat Tillman did what he thought was right and I commend him for it. It's just a shame, that's all.

I agree and think that it would be an injustice to him to do so right now.

A very fitting quote, sft&t.

Army Ranger Pat Tillman is an immortal hero, and I can't find the words to express my gratitude and sorrow for the sacrifice he and others have so selflessly made for all of us.

Amen to that JoeC - I think those words express the feelings just fine.

Anyone remember how Simeon Rice said Tillman wasn't that good at football (though he had over 200 tackles - a franchise record - one year and 153 (3rd most in the league) in 2000), that he probably joined up because he watched too many Rambo movies? I sent my share of hate mail to Rice and I hope you all do the same.

Petition to Tagliabue...

I tripped across this petition to the NFL/Tagliabue while reading about him. I signed it.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Tillman family. Pat was truely an American Hero and the petition should be signed by all in this board. It's people like Pat that allow us to do the things we do everyday.
