    A football legend in every sense of the word.

    "Boom!"

    He'll be sorely missed by the game.

    I actually think that at times in years past, he's helped its popularity; and he certainly hasnt hurt it.

        Folks often forget that he was a pretty fair football coach back in the days when the Oakland Raiders were relevant.

          I am not going to miss him. I know, I am in the minority, oh well, it won't be the first time.

              You are still my friend Pego. I can understand how Madden's style wouldn't suit everyone. Hell, i liked Howard Cosell. :shock:

                  Thank God He's Gone

                  Good riddance. He and Dick Vitale are the two biggest blabbermouths in sports television, and neither provided much insight or perspective. I feel about Madden the way several posters feel about Carol Lewis.

                    Precisely. Their style was funny for, say, two weeks.

                    Hey Squack, I liked Howard Cosell, too.

                      I rarely watch any of the major pro sports (they all suck) but Madden was at least enjoyable to listen to on the rare occasion I did watch.

                        I don't need somebody telling me about the X's and 0's of a football game. I understand the game. What I wanted was somebody to make it enjoyable to watch, Madden had that down. The best at making a football game fun/entertaining. I'll definitely miss him.

                          Actually, you do. The pro game evolves rapidly. The Spread Offense and cover schemes of the last few years are new, and I always appreciated his explanations of the nuances of the mechanics. He had the unique ability to talk to everyone, while not dumbing down the game (which CAN get pretty complex with all the at-the-line adjustments).

                              Unless this knowledge springs into your mind by predestination, you need sources. I'm betting TV commentators are a common source. As soon as you say you 'know-it-all', your credibility vanishes.
