I know there are a bunch of Bears fans on here & Im curious as to not jus their opinions, but everyone else's as well.
*On a side note, since this is the "football card" forum, would these allegation, true or false, affect his card values?
Voice ur opinions, and as always, lets keep it civil.

..Value of this is nil brother IMO...i guess the NFL does funny things to people as we have seen...but unless this book was penned by his own hands (he's dead) i highly doubt it matters to us Bears fans..We know who he was.
OH...and you knew the Favre stuff was coming...right?
just a little in Division Humor there.

Take this from someone who has seen more pain pill abuse than one should ever see. If Vicodin is the worst thing you do....you don't have a problem.
Almost every player in the NFL is taking opiate pain killers before and/or after games.....so why go after such an amazing player,well just an amazing person in general for something everyone in the profession does?
Americans love there controversy...it sells...and somebody needs a paycheck....this book should be in the Fiction section.

And FYI, im not saying anything bad about ur hero, I was merely sharing an article & asking opinions on what people thought about the alleged "ACCUSATIONS" about Walter (NOT Waltor). I found it kinda strange, that now, so many years after his passing, that this story is coming out, and the author who wrote the book, sounds like he is basing all his "facts" on the words of people who knew Payton, and not Payton himself. I love the guy & think he (along with Barry Sanders) is among the best RB's in NFL history.
I AGREE! I was shocked when I read this, but not surprised. Like you said, controversy sells & it seems like this guy needed a paycheck.
