This is incredibly shocking. Sparano is only 56 when he died. He went to the hospital Thursday from chest pains and died two days later. RIP Tony.

Very sad for the Vikings organization especially a week before camp. RIP Tony.

Hadn't heard that part of it.. Sounds like a lawsuit will be coming shortly.

RIP Tony. He had a memorable 2008 Dolphins team. That team pretty much made the wild cat a thing in modern football. They put a 38-13 beating on Belicheck's Patriot's that year and kept Matt Cassell out of the playoffs.
