NFLPA head Gene Upshaw dies at age 63
RIP, Gene Upshaw.
Not to be disrespectful by mentioning something trivial compared to the news of Upshaw's death itself, but this is a sports media blog, so . . .
A story such as this is exactly why ESPN instituted the 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. live SportsCenter block, which now will be covering it thoroughly, of course.
And by the way, if Upshaw was such a lapdog for the owners, as many of his critics asserted, why are the owners desperate to get out of the current CBA, believing it is too generous to the players?
OK, I'll leave all this stuff to Glauber now.
