    RIP. The Sabol's had as much to do with the NFL becoming the nation's #1 sport as anyone. Many are too young to know that the only way, pre-ESPN, you ever saw other teams was through the weekly NFL Films highlights.

    Thank you to the Sabol's.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    growing up in the 70's one of the coolest nights ever hanging out with my friends was the night we scored a 16mm copy of the 75 Steelers season highlights. narrated of course by john fucinda and capping with a sb victory over dallas. a dark room, some underage iron city drinking and a bed sheet for a screen. wonderful.

    still gives me chills. And let's be honest. Much of the mystique of the Steel Curtain was created BY those highlight reels and that wonderful voice. Just to hear that deep voice say 'mean joe greene'.....The end of an era for sure.

    All hail the Sabol's!

    I too was a huge fan of Steve Sabol and NFL Films. That's what football was all about. I am so grateful for what he did for the game.

    "There are 27 teams in the NFL.....and then there are the Pittsburgh Steelers." The "A Cut Above" video narrated by John Fucinda was awesome. All written by Steve Sabol.

    Him and his dad made the NFL into the power house it is today. They glamorized the NFL and made it a way of life, an icon and set the foundation of pro football for us fans. I am sad over the loss of Steve. I'm sad for his family, friends and us fans. He did seem like a great guy and it didn't hurt he always made great Steeler segments. Was it him or his father that made it to the HOF ? I'm glad now that it happened for one of them in his life time.

    His father....Steve presented him. I'd imagine he would also be inducted into the HOF sooner or later.

    Steve Sabol - the NFL's own hype man. The ultimate cross between William Drayton and/or Don LaFontaine.
