That sucks. Maybe the liver issue is from self-medicating.

 

Always liked Bernie.

Yes, there are other possible causes but cirrhosis of the liver is often caused by heavy drinking. As Bills fans know, players from that era liked to party.

 

I liked him too. Hope he does the best he can.

After a while with concussions and seizures, you would think a rational person would call it quits way before he did.  Reminds me of our current leader.

 

As a football player, I found him boring that stayed with the game way too long (obviously), reminds me of so many mediocre QBs the Bills had during the drought on terrible teams.

 

I hate to be cold but I cant imagine with Parkinson's he is no where near the top of the list for  a liver transplant.

I believe to be even considered for a transplant you need to be able to show youve been sober for 6 months. So he must be off the booze for a while to be on the list. 

Again I hate to be cold, but with Parkinson's he should be at the bottom of the list, Parkinson's is irreversible and degenerative.

Wow. He was a top QB in the AFC for 4-5 years, 3 AFC Title games. One of the best deep throwers ever, very smart QB.

Wow.

 

He made one Pro Bowl, he lost more than he won, never throw for over 4,000 yards (granted a different era).  Mediocre starting QB on mostly dismal teams.

Not disagreeing just saying he must be trying to stay sober now to even have a shot at a transplant
