Why is it that so many football players die so young? Is it weight? Too much money and bad lifestyle?

With Tyrone it was brain cancer that got him. I think it was just lousy luck more than anything.

But yes, it does seem that football players die younger than others.

If you're going to do these obituary entries you should at least say what happened to the people! :)

TOO many players in sports die young because of steroids & their long term affects.
