Just thought I'd share this because fringe players don't get the same news coverage. It is surreal that two players on the same team could lose loved ones in such tragic ways within the same month. I am Utah fan and watched Asiata play and even hung out with him at a few frat parties and wish his family well.

Matt Asiata would trade every award he's received as a football player for the chance to talk to his father one more time.

Asiata said he was at dinner Monday when he got a call from his brother.

"I heard my mom in the background screaming," said the former University of Utah star who now plays for the NFL's Minnesota Vikings. "I knew something was going on."

Asiata's father, Pita, was driving a group of more than 50 people back to Salt Lake City from Wendover, Nev., Monday afternoon when the bus ran into the back of a construction vehicle that had slowed down in the far left lane prior to driving into the median to turn around.

Statement from the Vikings

"We are aware of the tragic incident involving Matt's father, Pita Asiata. This is heartbreaking news for Matt and his family. We are here to support the Asiata family in any way possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Asiata family.

The investigations are ongoing but that doesn't matter.....RIP to his father.
Should play the WS in London TBPH IMHO...
I don't watch ANY games but the Giants. Besides SF, baseball is very boring and slow. I refuse to watch any other team

Hell, I even watched the season opener of basketball. Basketball don't even tickle my fansy until the heat or lakers are in it.

Giants announced that former first-round pick, RB David Wilson, will undergo neck surgery and his football future is uncertain.

Browns are placing the transition tag on center Alex Mack, which will give Cleveland chance to match any offer sheet he would sign.

In relation to current salary cap´s, I tend to think the Raiders wasted their opportunities. However, on the other side, the Cleveland Browns did a very good job.
What do you think they can these teams achieve this season?
