Re: Report: Gene Upshaw dead at 63
Upshaw was a MAJOR figure in the NFL.... I know a lot of people did NOT like him or the way he represented the union. Sports Illustrated did a nice piece on him several months ago. Bottom line, Upshaw oversaw some huge gains for the players over the years.
Also a sad day for Raiders fan.....Upshaw was a key component of those teams in the 70's.
