 It's a shame that he can no longer walk on his own power.

It's that reality cr&p that casts such a pall on everything, isn't it?  (Mutters to self:  "Damn reality!")

When I read articles about the ongoing CBA negotiations between the NFL owners and the NFLPA, I sure hope they both keep in mind the previous generations of players that made the NFL what it is today.  I can honestly say that Earl Campbell is almost solely responsible for me being an NFL fan...he is who got me rooting for the Houston Oilers back in the late 70s.  Didn't matter that I was a highschool kid (a girl, even!) with no previous interest in sports...any man that would play a game like that, I had to follow!  He is also a genuinely good soul, and very easy for anyone to root for.

I haven't heard of Earl having any financial difficulties; I believe he also had successful business ventures outside of football.  (Even though there was no ESPN then, he was probably an icon in Houston before LeBron's mama was even a twinkle in anyone's eye!)  However, it's pretty obvious what caused his current physical condition, and everyone - NFL owners and NFLPA members - should realize that.  Sooner or later, someone will pay...but for me...he will always be SIMPLY AMAZING.  Thanks, Earl, for still giving me goosebumps.
