To say that he was the GREATEST is simply an understatement!:chiefs:

that happened not far from where I live. around I-435 and 152 hwy. it was a bad day. wife and I were meeting another couple for a late lunch. we took my 4X4 because of road conditions. and it had traction problems. we heard about DT right after we got home. he was on his way to KCI.

RIP DT!!!

If he was around in 2003 maybe he would be the player to fill the hole in the Defense and we get closer to the Super Bowl because th Defense doesnt let us down?

it is often said about one whoe is gone that they will be truly missed, but rarely has it been proven as it was with #58

i had a customer originaly from KC last week. he met DT and Neil Smith one night and got to hang out with them all night. as he told stories of that night his eyes lit up and then as he got to the night of the accident and his subsequent passing there were tears in those eyes.

This is no joke they cancelled a few of my classes...depending on the professor, unbeievable how much he meant to the community.
My father, who is 100% french, was gm at trader vics at the wedtin crown center. We would go up to c him on the weekend getting there around 9 on friday. Well needlrss to say my fayher didnt recognize him as he walked in. Everybody seemed to know who he was but my dad. So my dad greets him at the door and poliyely says sir sorry we are closed. Turns out he was late for a dinner meeting. Talk about in shape. Him

His were not the only tears that have been shed when thinking about what should have been.

He may be the single most reason I've endured such BS decisions by this organization over the past 10 years. He made it fun to be a Chief's fan. This team needs to get a whole lot of his attitude!!!!!!!!

Of all the players who's names should not be mentioned around Chiefs fans, this date is far more infamous than any playoff loss in my opinion.

This is a day in Chief Nation, that is one of, if not the one, saddest date for Chiefs Fans!
D.T. RIP.
