Very sad.

Update: CBS sports reported he has passed away.

Now a Spokesman has come out and said that the report is not true.

Either way it is not looking good.

I don't feel any sadness for him.. I will withhold that for the victims of his buddy that he protected.

Not dead, but is probably headed that way. I worked with someone with lung cancer, they lived about 6 months about being diagnosed with it.

Tragic, in the old Greek sense, to see a guy who'd built up his life for so many years have it all flushed away by his own lousy actions towards the end. Think about how different these obits would be if he'd died 1 year ago before anyone knew about this stuff.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
If you think Manziel is the best QB in this draft I can safely assume you are an idiot and will treat you as such.

I agree completely.

In the statement released by the family, they speak of the "hundreds of young men who's lives he changed"....i hope they include the countless young boys that were sexually abused(alledgedly) while he turned the other cheek.
