ESPNEWS is reporting that Lamar Hunt has passed away at 74 from prostate cancer.

RIP to one of the great pioneers of pro football.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"They're plump, ripe, and priced to move. Get your fat Samoan today!" (Packman V2)


Not just pro football. He probably did just as much for soccer in the US. Football wouldn't be anywhere near what it is now without him.

The NFL wouldn't be what it is today without Lamar Hunt. There would be no Chiefs, Chargers, Patriots, Bills, Titans (Oilers), Broncos, Raiders, Bengals, Dolphins or Jets without his formation of the AFL. No Super Bowl. The MLS may not exist without his support. He was one of the greatest figures in sports. RIP, Lamar.

Hunt was also a huge ambassador for tennis, as he was a major reason the men's tour (eventually the ATP) began. He was mostly a financial help...

Which is why I think these comments of how he was a great man are a bit much. I could also do a lot of great things if I inherited a gazillion dollars.

Well, on the other hand, there are plenty of people who inherit a bunch of money who still don't help anyone. So he's still worthy of praise in my opinion.
