https://www.foxnews.com/sports/gale...tar-and-pro-football-hall-of-famer-dead-at-77 I’ve lived in Illinois all of my 57+ years and grew up an avid Chicago Bears fan. In all that time, I’ve never heard anyone utter anything but respect and admiration for Gale Sayers. Not one bad/controversial thing, ever. I’m seldom saddened by the passing of someone I’ve never met but I was truly sorry to hear this today. May he rest in peace. I no longer watch the NFL but today’s generation of players and fans could learn something from this man.
