    Predict whose death will be discuss the most during the SB pre-game and game....

    Mike Holovak, a New England Patriots Coach who died one week before the SB.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=txobitholovak&prov=st&type=lgns

    Marquise Hill, a New England Patriots Player who died during the off-season

    or

    Sean Taylor, a player on the Washington Redskins that died.

    (Note: The New England Patriots will be participating in the SB, the Redskins will not)

    I noticed that almost everyone in the league is wearing Taylors 21 sticker

    but

    on the Patriots its only a few players, like Wilfork for example.

    i've read some **** in my life, but this has to be the worst thread ever created.

    first, why does it matter?

    and secondly, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

    come one man, we shouldn't be playing a game on peoples deaths, it's pretty disrespectful.

    and im not saying this thread was intended to be so, but it's just kinda bad taste.

    I'm with you, it made me wince to read this.

    I get the point about Taylor's death getting a disproportionate amound of attention compared to Hill's, but Taylor was more well known and human nature was for people to feel closer to him because of that. I guarantee it isn't an issue for any of the families of the deceased.

    i noticed almost everyone in league is wearing a Taylor 21 sticker

    but

    no one BUT the Patriots are wearing a 91

    heck i dont see 40 Tillman..i dont see a 27 Williams. i dont see a 29 Nash

    i guess u can only put so much on but shouldnt be a big deal. I love Sean Taylor though.

    RIP all those players

    This is actually a good point. Why did the league never have Tillman's number put on all teams' helmuts? The guy died while volunteering to fight for his country instead of earning millions. You'd think that would have been a great story. Did the NFL have every team pause for a moment of silence for tillman? I don't remember.

    I agree. Starting a Holovak thread, without him, the Patriots might very well have folded.

    I agree with you. I am sure that when the author was writing his post he didn't think of the crudeness just the uneven coverage. This subject is just best left alone.

    Can't we just make this thread go away?

    On the other hand, it's a good example of why there should only be one week between the AFC/NFC Championship Games and the Super Bowl.

    Wow, this is in poor taste.

    Death is not a competition. All should have their memories honored, and all do. It's not a contest to see the degree to which we should mourn a loss.

    Have a bit more discretion when deciding what it's worth getting worked up about.
