someone slap simeon rice like the poor overpaid baby he is. That fatso wouldnt last a day in a boot camp. RIP Pat Tillman. Its too bad they cant name the stadium after him, since it will have to be Norelco Stadium or the Zest Bowl. At least he and his colleagues who have died can be remembered by Soldiers Field, the only unsponsered stadium name in I think all of pro sports. I think his number should be retired and should be worn on a band on every jersey this year.

I think the NFL will open the draft tomorrow morning with a moment of silence for all the fallen soldiers over the past 2 years..

What a great man, to leave the love of your life for defending your country; leaving the greatest sport to fight for our freedom is incredible. The man deserves recognition :,-(

Ummm... just football I'm thinking:
Giants Stadium (Meadowlands)
Lambeau Field
Arrowhead Stadium
Raymond James Stadium
Ralph Williams Stadium
Sun Devil Stadium
An incomplete list of what I can think of for now in just the NFL, but I know there are many others.
Think before you post.

I have to imagine the Cards will do this...good way to remember him through the next season.

The NFL could also create a new award for him - something to signify total unselfishness and loyalty to the team/country...that would be equally meaningful.

I'll just reiterate from those who seem wiser than me.

Pat Tillman is a person unlike any other I have known or heard of. And when I say this I'm not trying to downplay any of the other people who have ever served and survived or lost their lives for this country and all it stands for.

But how many people who have served, perished or not, would have done what he did given his situation? How many of those people or anyone else (I know I wouldn't have) yourself or anyone you know would have VOLUNTEERED to give up a life of luxury, fun, and fame to put yourself in a position of submissive, disciplinary duty where you could lose your life at any given time?

I don't know one. Apparently, out of all the types of people in his position, be it football, baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, hockey, etc., he was THE ONLY ONE to give all that up to serve his country.

A hero beyond heroes is what Pat Tillman is. His sense of urgency, nobility, honor, responsibility, and duty are all unmatched and unquestioned.

Surely, only the good die young.

I also remember Rocky Bleier doing that. Just thought I'd add that.
