K.C. Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt has died
Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt has died.

Hunt passed away in a Dallas hospital at age 74 after battling cancer for several years. He was hospitalized the day before Thanksgiving with a partially collapsed lung. Doctors discovered that the cancer has since spread, and Hunt has been under heavy sedation since last week.

Hunt was a founder of the American Football League and played a huge rule in the A-F-L/N-F-L merger. He saw his Chiefs win Super Bowl Four in 1970, two years before he became the first AFL figure inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

One of the most important people in American professional football history. The league needs to do a major honor for him.

This is huge loss to the NFL family. Lamar Hunt was one of the fathers of football as we know it and he will be missed.

RIP Mr Hunt
