    Sorry, but I have to quote the whole story this time. Incredible, and it really makes me want to root for SF over the Saints even more.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Dutchrudder again

    Awesome read, Dutch. Will definitely be rooting on the 49ers against the 'Aints. Tired of them.

    I hope the 49ers and Akers score FGs while the Saints score TDs.

    I watched a bit on this touching story not too long ago. There was one thing I didn't see mentioned in the article you posted that is a nice addendum to the class act that Akers is:

    David Akers Purchases Billboard Thanking Philly Fans


    this, even after all of the **** that the Philly fans gave him after that game. Inspiring to see him remember and focus on the positive like this.

    Class act.

    Great read, I had no idea. Repped.

    And karma's a b!tch on the Eagle's & their [​IMG]Dream Team for not re-signing him.

    Class act, indeed, Mr. Akers. :clap:
