Former Ohio State and Oakland Raiders great has died at the age of 61 today from a heart attack.

I have no problem with the hit on Stingley(football is a collision sport).He could have made an attempt to visit Stingley when his career was over,instead he had to uphold his "badass" image years after he was no longer relevant.

I'm sure they talked afterwards...there's no definate way to know if they ever talked or not.

The fact remains is he is the embodiment of what football should be...Love the guy both on and off the field. The way the NFL is being set up now a days is a joke.

After he retired, he did try to meet with Stingley and his family. They declined the meeting.

As a life-long Pats fan I always had IMMENSE respect for Jack Tatum. The Stingley thing wasn't dirty, just a bad accident. Was Tatum a nice guy? I just didn't and don't care. He was EXACTLY what I wanted out of a football player.

RIP dude.

They were going to meet on a tv show and Stingley pulled out when he found out Tatum would be there promoting his book. I don't blame Stingley for pulling out.

And Regret....if you think letting guys today play like Tatum did back then would be a good thing, you're an ass.

You wouldnt be the first to call me an ass. They get paid MILLIONS of dollars! This is supposed to be a PHYSICAL game...now with all of the penalties and fines and shit they're enforcing, it is turning into a PATTYCAKE BULLSHIT LEAGUE...

Any REAL football fan would agree to an extent that they're getting a bit out of hand, and if you dont, I'd tell you to go watch a sport like soccer or something where you can enjoy people faking injuries and taking dives to get a penalty for no fucking reason.

Football is meant to stay like it should...if they keep making all these revisions...then its gonna start losing its credibility in the long run. AND PEOPLE STILL GET HURT! Keeping it the same wouldnt cause much more injuries than what is already happening each year.

The reason they're scaling back on the hits is because of all the brain damage it has been causing, i thought that was clear. Look at the study done on Chris Henrys brain, he didn't even have problems with concussions and they found his brain damaged to severe extent.

Pardon the offense, but this is 100% meatball macho bullshit.

Guys are so ridiculously faster, stronger, and bigger today that if they were allowed to play like Tatum did, there would be deaths on the field. Bitch about the pattycake nature of protecting qb's and I might agree with you to an extent. You mentioned yourself....people are still getting hurt. Why is that? Because these guys are now human missiles with body armor on. They're are doing a damn fine job of maiming each other without all the semi-dirty tactics of the past. They are so much physically better than guys of Tatum's era, yet you still want them to be allowed to do the things they did back then. That's pretty fucking twisted.

To counter your argument, the players may be faster and stronger than ever...but the protective equipment is also WAY BETTER than ever.

I'm not saying allow cheap shots, dirty hits, or anything of that nature. But if a safety wants to crack a receiver up high he shouldnt get penalized for it. The gameplay is SO FAST that alot of times, they do it on accident...other times maybe not. But alas, here we digress...we could dissect this topic for days and argue, and provide counter-arguments one way or the other...but neither of our opinions will change on the matter of the subject.
