    You didnt know who the Minister of defense was? Are you kidding me? Are you asking if he was a great player? He only is 1 of the best ever, with 1 hand he threw people out of the way. He had 198 sacks in his career only Bruce Smith had more (200). Micheal Strahan has 132 and Simeon Rice has 121.

    Reggie White was a hero. He the best on the field and off of the field too.

    Reggie White is one of my many heroes, The Day he died I was at a restaurant with my family and the tv was on and they announced it, it was a sad day. I have read his autobiography (Reggie White: In the Trenches) about 10 times, it is very inspiring and overall just a great story. He was an awesome football player and an even better person. He is one of the best Defensive lineman and will always be remembered.

    R.I.P Minister of Defense

    He touched alot of lives, thats for sure.
    If you ever get the chance, check out the movie he made called "Reggie's Prayer". It was a low budget film, but I thought it was excellent.

    I agree Cyoung.............i think some people automatically think EVERYONE knows the Green Bay Packers and their whole history.
    A relatively new fan comes here and asks honest questions, and deserves civil answers.

    I was just making a point.......Reggie White was one of the most prolific atlethes ever. I find it hard to believe some havent heard of him.

    Yeah, he was an awesome football player and a great man, but from what I understand Green_Bay_Packers is a newer Packers fan (correct me if I am wrong) and in England so it is possible he wouldn't know...Now I think we can all agree he was an awesome player and a true hero.

    I understand..........no need to feel picked on. GBP isn't from this country, so he still is learning about the Packers history.
    If you put me in England and asked me about some huge soccer hero there, i wouldn't have a CLUE about ANY of them.

    I think you are all reading this post wrong.

    The statement "I can't believe how young he was" would say that he is referring to Reggie's passing -- not that he did not know who he was. It is understandable that a fan in England would not see Reggie's obituary.

    Why does every statement a person makes need to be ridiculed?


    BTW -- I believe GBP is a teenager so he would have only been a young child when Reggie was playing. That would be like asking how many of us (I am 38) saw Merlin Olsen play (before he started doing flower commercials).

    There is something called a joke. Evidently you don't know what a joke is.

    This is David Beckham:

    This is Travis Beckum:

    I don't see Travis Beckum. So I'm still winning.

    And now that's twice I've been accused of not having a sense of humor.

    You people don't want me to make you laugh. Believe me. Your sides will bleed.
