    Most people chose to remember the good vs the bad after someone has passed, this documentary will bring up some bad memories. Not saying NFL Films will trash his name, but just remind us McNair was no saint.

    I really don't mind when scumbags are scumbags. Arnold Schwarzenneger is a scumbag. And I can almost appreciate that, and laugh when he screws things up and sleazes around. That's him, and that's always been him. An honest liar. I expect nothing less.

    With Mcnair and others whose facade has been shattered, it really messes with me. We hold these people to a false high standard, and we don't even really know the person at all.

    Give me a person who is an honest scumbag any day.

    Most great athletes are all somewhat scumbags, sad reality.

    Nice guys finish last.

    Almost all the people where i work(Male nurses) who have an opinion on Mcnair are down on the guy. Either it is because of his sex life and how he died or they think he wasn't that good of a player. Or both.

    I'm shaking my head wondering what football they were watching.

    Now most of you guys know that the apartment that Steve was murdered in was where all the married titans players took their girlfriends right? Several players pitched in for that apartment for that purpose.

    I'm sure every nfl city has a place like that.

    A Football Life are the best sport documentaries I've ever seen. Every single one has been of the utmost quality. Excited to watch this one.

    I didnt admire him for his personal life, I admired him for what he did on the field.

    When McNair was suited up, it felt like there was always a chance he could win, no matter who we were facing. Thats how Ill always remember him.

    No player will ever bring out the emotion in me like McNair doe when I explain to my wife and kids how different the Titans were back then.

    See this is what I meant. You probably did hear that before but chose to ignore it and forgot about it. This show is going to ruin Steve McNair for some people.

    I have heard of it as well. Its like a "cheating club" that all teams has. THere was actually something on TV exposing it once. Really interesting stuff.
