      John Kasay was a kicker for many years for the Carolina Panthers of the NFL. Read his goodbye note to the fans. Class. All athletes should do the same -- most don't. :hug:

      Tis true.

      Lil Luis wrote a letter thanking the fans when he was released.

      Always a place here for Luis - a gent.
