Andolsek , Long and Little suffered the strangest deaths... may I add that Andolsek was in his front yard (I'm assuming he lived in a rural area, off a country road or something) when the semi truck barreled onto his property and ran him over while on foot!

One can only conclude that the antifreeze cocktail meant that Terry Long was in a severe depression, or just not in the right state of mind, obviously

And the most unfortunate, David Little... a guy who was still trying to stay strong in the weight room, had a bar bell roll onto his throat, crushing the life out of him. His son found him in his weight room at home, dead. sad.

I am not making this stuff up.. check it out on wikipedia

next up for research: how many ex TSB players are currently in prison.. I know one thing for sure, the Sea hawks have some Bad Boys on that team.. including a guy doing time for murder! stay tuned

William Perry will most likely be next. He's not doing so well right now.

We should put together a DECEASED team rom, where you can only use one team with players that are all Deceased.

A way to commemmorate their acheivements on and off the field.

Sad indeed. He was always one of those guys who I came to like because of Tecmo.


Does anyone have an updated list?  Also, not sure why I posted a smiley face next to Kent Hull from years ago. Must have been before emojis were a thing.
