Okay, so first off all. Moment of silence for Pat Tillman.
Next up. What is the latest I keep hearing about Jake Plummer and the Tillman family concerning the 40 sticker that was previously worn by every team?
My friend said that the family only wants the Cardinals to wear it, which I think is dumb personally, but maybe see a LITTLE why they would want that.
We were at the gym and I looked up at the TV to see the news ticker saying something about the NFL ordering Jake Plummer to remove the sticker from his helmet? Especially since Plummer was Tillman's teammate for seven years, he should be allowed to wear it and show his support.
Now if this was you and your family, wouldn't you be happy to see players wanting to keep the sticker on to remind people of the sacrifice that Pat Tillman made? Personally, I would be honored to have as many players as possible showing support for the loss of an incredible individual who was part of my family.
I never really cared for Plummer, but he got a TON of respect from me for this incident by not wanting to take it off, to me it shows that he realizes the sacrifices that Tillman made to serve his country and give up millions of dollars and a child hood dream.
Any thoughts on this?
Do I have the story wrong, if so please post what the deal is, thats why I started this thread, I'm curious as to what the deal is and why the request of the family to remove the stickers.
