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.

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.

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.

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.
I certainly think someone will give him a chance if he, like Terrell Davis, signed for the veteran minimum with plenty of incentives. Who that would be? I don't know.
