Heartbreaking. Seems like such a waste man. I'm so happy he's around for the Superbowl.

I wouldn't necessarily call it a waste of a man per say, yea he's lost all physical ability from what he once was able to do, but his mind is still there, his heart and drive is still there, the willingness to help development/growth of this great team and organization. that's the biggest attribute anyone anywhere, any time can offer anyone. and that is something that is valued much more than the physical being. speaking from experience ( from a physical disability stand point as I was born with a medical condition that has hindered me my whole life) use the downside as a strength! something of motivation. we all hear about how players are using their experiences as something to drive off of, well O.J looks past the physical aspect of life, his meaning to the organization is second to none..when people look upon him, they don't see (or at least I don't) a person in a wheel chair unable to speak exc, we see a driving force. a Motivation. a human being whose worth is more than meets the eye...... O.J. You are a inspiration to us all, to the team, to your players. to your family and friends. hopefully many many more years fo him to come :229031_cheer:

Don't get me wrong man, I didn't mean it in disrespect at all. What I was getting at was, I feel for him, and it seems unfair that this illness should happen to anyone, my point by calling it a "waste"
