    NFL Films' Steve Sabol has Brain Tumor

    [QUOTE]MOUNT LAUREL, N.J.

    NFL Films said Friday that president Steve Sabol will undergo radiation and chemotherapy treatment after doctors discovered a tumor on the left side of his brain.

    "(Steve) will begin treatments soon," the New Jersey-based company said in a statement. "Steve is in good spirits and is deeply appreciative of everyone's good wishes."

    According to NFL.com, 68-year-old Sabol was hospitalized March 5 in Kansas City, Mo., after suffering a seizure. That led doctors to conduct tests that confirmed the presence of a tumor.

    Sabol had traveled to Kansas City to accept an award for NFL Films.

    Sabol has worked with NFL Films since 1964, when he began working for his father, Ed, as a cinematographer. In that time, he has received 27 Emmy Awards for writing, cinematography, editing, directing and producing.

    Ed Sabol, 94, was elected last month for enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

    Well that flat out stinks. Hope he gets better....his work speaks for itself.

    Cant wait till we find a easier treatment for cancer than chemo.

    I hate to tell everybody this, but it's brain cancer. Any recovery is temporary, unfortunately.
