Lose of a legend.
As an old school Raiders fan, this hits kind of hard. I grew up during his heyday as a broadcaster, as well, and remember seeing the Madden Bus in person a few times over the years. Losing a lot of legends as they get older.
I don't know how they could ever measure it, but wonder how much that video game franchise has contributed to the NFL's popularity.Very sad to see, but he lived a FULL life! Of all of his career highlights; He created a video game boom and I would be interested to see how close Madden sales are compared to all other video game franchises since the 1988!
