Jack Tatum died

This guy crushed people.



Hard-hitting former Raider Jack Tatum dies at 61
By RUSTY MILLER, AP Sports Writer
19 minutes ago

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—Jack Tatum, the All-Pro safety for the Oakland Raiders best known for his hit that paralyzed Darryl Stingley in an NFL preseason game in 1978, has died. He was 61.

Nicknamed “The Assassin,” Tatum died of a heart attack Tuesday in Oakland, according to friend and former Ohio State teammate John Hicks.

On Aug. 12, 1978, Stingley, playing for the New England Patriots, ran head-on into the hard-hitting Tatum on a crossing pattern. The blow severed Stingley’s fourth and fifth veterbrae and left the receiver paralyzed.

Tatum said he tried to visit Stingley at an Oakland hospital shortly after the collision but was turned away by Stingley’s family members.

Stingley died in 2007.

Helluva hitter, and a known "head-hunter". I think Stingley might be giggling...just a little.

Is the hit on Stingley anywhere online?

1/19/09, the last day of Free America.

I doubt it. The NFL has probably blocked it as much as possible. I want to say I saw it on some show on the nfl network one day though.
