I agree, Pat Tilman was a soldier who unfortunately died in combat, and he should be honored just like any other soldier. He didn't enlist to hunt for glory and we shouldn't glorify his death. He doesn't need it, he already has it.

What the Cardnials are doing is a very positive and outward show of appreciation and respect. It is about time the NFL, with all of it's glory boy multimillion dollar players took a step back and looked at what is truly important. Let the Cardnials, his former teammates, honour him in the way they see fit. I see no valid reason to criticise their actions.

As far as the military is concerned, he WAS another soldier. I think he was more publicized because he left the NFL to BE a soldier. The NFL sould honor him in their fashion.

Look poque, pat tillman could have stayed in america with a great carrer, plenty of dough, and anything else his heart desired, and if he hadnt gone to iraq, nobody would have though any less of him if heda stayed home, but he chose to do something for his country, and even die if nessasary, he had no thought of glory or fame, and its just those kinds of people who deserve the highest honer.

I have to say do a special ceremony. I think what Ranger Tillman did was amazing, it takes a special man to give up a life in the NFL to do what he did, but, he was still a soldier. What about all of the other soldiers that have died in war? His sacrifice was the same as theirs except they didnt play in the NFL.

That is how I feel.
