    Sad news. I'll never forget when he was blinded by the penalty flag. One of the strangest incidents I've seen in sports.

    The flag hitting him in the eye was strange, but him attacking the ref was even stranger. Of course we have all heard of PED side-effects... oh yeah, the NFL tests for this (lol).

    Anyhow... RIP and condolences to his family.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    That incident forever changed how they throw flags. They now gently toss them underhand.

    Was his eye permanently damaged? I thought the blindness was only temporary.

    Any word on cause of death yet?
