    First thought: Oh man, that's terrible. Max was the best on the radio.

    Second thought: What was a 75 yo man doing on the roof?

    The same thing my 81 year old grandpa does on the roof everyday. I'm worried to death every day that the same thing will happen to him. I have to watch him more than I can actually work.

    He will be missed..

    He reminded me of Bob Uecker when he was covering Packer games..So much fun to listen to, always had a story, or a comment that just made you laugh

    This is very sad.
    Max was the everyday Packer fans guy. He played the game of football hard but always seem to be able to enjoy life at the same time.

    He is a Packer legend "on and off the field" this is a very sad day for all Packer fans.

    RIP Max

    Max McGee was the best. He had that unique ability to simplify life. When he talked, he talked in simple terms that everyone could understand. There were so many times I remember hearing Max and Jim talk and Max would say something, and I go, "well duh". I like McCarren a lot, but I really long for those days of Jim and Max. They could call a game and talk a game better than anyone in the business.

    I heard this on the news last night, and i felt like i was punched in the gut. I felt the same when Ray Nitschke died. These are the heroes when i was a child, and every time one of them passes, i feel like part of me goes with them, part of my own past. I got to see Max at Fan Fest in 2006, and got a few nice pictures of him.
    Another Packer great, gone.
    RIP Max :cry:

    A few months ago my father in law fell off the ladder and broke his hip. He is on coumadin so it could have been fatal for him.

    Our prayers go out to the family. Max will be missed.

    It is a bit shocking to realize that it has been 10 years since he retired from the booth.

    I wonder if it was the fall, or if maybe he had a heart attack or something that caused the fall. Guess we will find out sooner or later.

    Have to admit I wasn't aware of his significance until now. It's tough when any childhood hero leaves us. My heart goes out to his family and Packer fans everywhere.

    Max was one of my favorite players and announcers.
    He was good at whatever he did and he was having fun while he was doing it.
    May you rest in peace Max.
