    The president of the NFL Films Steve Sabol died of brain cancer. He was only 69 yrs old. Our prayers to out to his family & friends. Pres Sabol did alot to help promote the NFL. RIP.

    We'll miss you, Steve. You were the kid that got to live out his dreams by running up and down sidelines every Sunday shooting a camera. You were brave to do that at the Ice Bowl. RIP.

    He was one of my favorites. I was told a month after he had the diagnosis he wasnt going to make it long by someone in the business, I am glad he held out longer than anyone thought and long enough to see his dad inducted. I hope Steve goes into the Hall not long after.

    THE biggest reason the NFL is as popular as it is today. A genius. Thank you Steve.
