    +1 NFL.com should get down on their knees today and really thank him on air. Truth; the entire NFL should; Steve was a trail blazer.

    RIP, Steve; a true pioneer (along with his father). Here is an interview he did with former Jets QB Chad Pennington...

    I think it'd be a fitting tribute. Who are you to decide how pious a reaction to the death of someone we don't know should be. If anything, banalities shoud be offensive and unworthy of such a personality.

    Oops, didn't get a chance to leave my condolences since I had to deal with that nut from the Westboro Baptist Church.

    RIP Steve and thanks for the memories.

    I was reluctant to post.

    But all I can say that there is something truly special about a man and his life that when you think of him all that you can recall is the joy he has given you and others....

    Rest in Peace Mr. Sabol, your life was truly a life well done....

    Rest in Peace Sabol!

    Nothing about that is a token expression. I think Sabol was one of truly important people in the development of the package we love today. Not just a cosmetic name in the industry.
