Default Reggie White dead at 43

Massive heart attack. Just announced on ESPN. A very sad day in the NFL.

you can't say enough about a guy like reggie white...a man who was as much a man of god as he was a man of football and his community...probably one of the very few unblockable d-lineman the game has ever seen and will ever see...a man who loved people and loved the game...we have lost a truely remarkable man today

It saddens me that this keeps happening. First Derrick Thomas and now Reggie White, it seems like a curse to be a sack leader in the NFL.

I wish the best for White's family.

I think it's pretty irresponsible for ESPN to announce he died of a massive heart attack, when it was later reported he died of a respritory problem in his sleep. When you hear massive heart attack, you get a very bad picture in your head and you feel so bad for the pain he may have been in during his final minutes.

It just made me mad that they were so careless that they had to get out the cause of death, even if it wasn't confirmed

First and foremost, my condolences are extended to the White family.

I, too, heard that Reggie died of a massive heart attack, but also heard that he had long suffered from sleep apnea (sp?). I don't know a lot about that condition, but is is possible that over a prolonged period of time, it could lead to a heart condition? I know that some use breathing machines to assist with the condition, but not sure if the frequent interruption in breathing would lead more to an asthma like consequences, heart problems or both.

i remember a story (HBO'S Real Sports perhaps) on retired NFL linemen & the problem of sleep apnea.

There are doctors that have studied it & claim it is a serious problem the NFL needs to address. I think it had something to do w/the tremendous amount of weight these guys have to put on from HS to PRO in order to be players.

I do wish my deepest sympathes to the White family in their personal tragic loss. Reggie White was a helluva Football Player.

I am not looking to start a fire-storm or mock the sudden passing of Reggie White, but of all the things Reggie White is/ was a great football player. I find it very interesting that none of the following issues of been subject to further debate.

1) Reggie White was always viewed as the Ministy of Defense. But the man had given up on Christianty over 3 years ago after a tragedy in his life. The man has been viewed something as a second coming of a religious phophet, but how many people are aware that he had given up on Jesus and had turned to studying Hebrew.

2) I am sure the Asian population is completely in mourning over this man. Complete sarcasim here over Reggie's comments about Asians in front of the Wisconsin legislature. Reggie was one never to hold his tongue but as we all have heard, he made some severly racist and hurtful comments regarding all races. I would put what he said in line with what John Rocker once said.
Is everyone ready is forgive and welcome back John Rocker?

I know my comments will offend some (so I apologize to you now), but the fact of the matter is Reggie White was a helluva football player (thats all), but its getting pretty sick on how the media is worshipping this man.

I think whenever a famous actor, athlete, politician passes that people tend to remember the good things and that is publicized because we all want to remember good things about others rather than bad.

I do believe he apologized about his comments to the politicians and ultimately that is all one can do when one says something they'd rather have not..you apologize and move on. I don't believe that Reggie was anything but a good person based on the help he gave others less fortunate, etc. His actions speak very loudly regarding his charitable works.

I saw him play many times and he was a great football player. Always working hard, didn't take any plays off and he seemed to be well respected by his teammates and his opponents.

....a great football player; it's a shock that he died so young (he was almost four years younger than I am right now).

You got it 1/2 right. He didn't give up on Christianity, he was studying Hebrew so he could understand the Bible better by reading it as originally written.

Reggie White had just begun to live
