"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Sad news to report. Steve Sabol has died. He was 69. To me, NFL Films is the best thing that ever happened to pro football.

Here is a terrific piece on Sabol by Rich Cohen over at the Atlantic.

Sabol will be missed.

I agree, Alex. Sabol's contribution to the sport was huge. His storytelling, and filmmaking defined the game as we know it. I love his work.

Wow, the Atlantic piece is great. Thanks for putting that up, Alex.
