Quarterback NFL legend Joe Namath does the coin toss at the beginning of Super Bowl 48 on February 2, 2014.

NFL legend Joe Namath honored fallen soldier Chris Kyle as he did the coin toss at the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 2nd. Namath tweeted a picture of what he would be wearing in honor of Kyle, who died one year ago on February 2, 2013. Kyle is known as America’s deadliest sniper. He had 160 kills during the course of his prolific military career. He was killed one year ago at a shooting range in Texas while helping another veteran overcome post-traumatic stress disorder.

  • Dona Valentine

    very cool of him . Class act

  • Brenda Sharpe

    I did not realize this until now. What a great American Joe Namath is!

  • Ed

    Thank you Joe Namath. God Bless you.

  • Vonnie Wilford

    Thanks for remembering, Joe!

  • TouchStone

    A class act.

    • Longiron

      And Joe Willie is still cool and started the whole SUPER Bowl thing.

  • Chuck

    Someone honored him–it should’ve been this admin.–but we all know O hates the military.

    • kevin Golike

      right on chuck,instead our government spent millions on the half time entertainment,got to keep those roman citizens happy or they might rebel! all these games are are distractions to keep people from thinking about their plight

      • Eric Kunz

        Where in the world did you get ANY idea that the government spent a dime on the halftime show??

        • ROT_SOLDIER

          They’ve spent millions on their DHS Viper Teams checking every person in and around that place. There were Federal agents everywhere’s and even Federal snipers hidden throughout the stadium. There were squadrons at the ready and all ready in the air in case of an event. Shall I go on. Yes, you and the rest of us paid for millions and millions of dollars for the half-time show and nothing ever happened. Why? Because you’ve got the foxes watching the hen house. Just like the war on drugs, terrorism is great for business and great for political careers.

          • Leo P McArdle

            Actually the cost, while still coming from the people, is paid by the city governments the sponsors and the league’s.

          • chewinmule

            By the leagues, you mean the SOBs that don’t pay ANY federal taxes. Are those the folks you are talking about, you senseless twit!

          • Leon Endres

            while the league is tax exempt, most of the money funnels down to the teams which DO pay taxes…do some research on this please…

          • chewinmule

            Most of the money? You are the one who needs to do research.For one, what salary is the commissioner paid? That ought to keep you busy for infinity.

          • Leo P McArdle

            Actually the cost, while still coming from the people, is paid by the city governments the sponsors and the league’s.

          • Teasip

            The federal government probably spent less on Super Bowl security than Buckwheat and Moose’s vacations.

      • Matt Miller

        lol the money for the half time shows comes from the nfl and people who buy tickets but nice try

        • chewinmule

          So abides the Hegelian dialectic!

      • Bill Foss

        I say the same thing…I call them Roman Citizens too.

    • Lighthorse51

      And of all the celebrities that could have done this, it takes a guy that has said recently that he’s been struggling with brain damage. I would say your brain is functioning just fine pal, God bless you!

  • kevin Golike

    right on chuck,instead our government spent millions on the half time entertainment,got to keep those roman citizens happy or they might rebel!

    • Kerry Hull

      I am not sure about the entertainment but they spent hundreds of millions ( I saw $ 222 million some where ) on security. What a farce.

  • Marty

    Thanks”’ Joe,,, for helping the world remember,,,,, Great way to honor Chris….

  • Jim Dicken

    Joe did more today than Obama has done in a year to commemorate Chris Kyle.

    • Russell

      Amen !

    • Ricky Wilson

      Thats because Joe loves this country and what it stands for more than obama the terrorist.

      • rf clabaugh

        ain’t that the truth he is a muslim and out to take down America

    • BrotherPatriot

      We TrueBlood American’s know the Real score… Hooyah & God Bless.

    • Eliott

      But yet he gave airtime to Whitney Houston who died of drugs and gave nothing to the country. He has no respect whatsoever for our military. He only uses them when he wants a photo-shoot.

    • ONTIME

      Joe is a American with a valid BC…no one is supposed to know who or what the Faker in WH is……but we will before long..

  • Kevin Blankenship

    Good for Broadway Joe!! Chris Kyle put the hurt to those who intended to harm our warriors and thanks Joe Namath for your kind act and honor of a true American Warrior Chris Kyle!!!

  • BrotherPatriot

    Thank you for honoring my fallen SEAL brother, Mr. Namath. All of us, former & currently serving frogmen really, really appreciate it. Hooyah, Chris…! You will NEVER be forgotten. Rest with God, my Brother.

    • ColoMom

      And thank you BrotherPatriot for your service, bravery & Patriotism.

    • Ryan Kanagy

      And thank you for your tireless service. I’m proud to have such an elite group of warriors protecting our freedoms. “Act of Valor” makes me tear up every time I watch it. God bless you and your brothers in arms and those SEALS who died defending our freedoms.

      • Hopeinchains

        Lone Survivor is another one worth seeing (and read the book)

        • thst nativeguy

          missed lone survivior in the local theater. had a cold this weekend. guess i’ll have to wait till the dvd comes out and watch it when i want to. murph the protector is pretty good as well

          • BrotherPatriot

            Yep. Both are just plain excellent. If only we had more movies that tried to help build our national pride. Instead, it’s an unrelenting attack from Hollywood upon the very morals that helped found our nation, it seems. America…don’t forget God as just like the saying goes…a life without God is like an unsharpened pencil…there is no point.
            Hooyah & God Bless.

    • Julia10

      Thank you for serving our country, God bless you! RIP Chris….

    • TheRMSDave

      We are grateful for you and all who serve so faithfully. Thank you, BrotherPatriot! – Mrs. TheRMSDave

    • Terrie

      BrotherPatriot as a former serving frogman, I can say Joe Namath proved once again why he is one of the greatest players of all time, and thank you for saying what a lot of us are thinking. SWO/MMC Terrie Boyett (SS/SW)

      • howler1968

        And thank you,Chief Boyett.

      • BrotherPatriot

        Ty for your service, Sir. People like us are the fail safe’s within our society. People like us are the ones who will rise up to defend our Nation from both foreign & domestic threats. Not just due to our Oaths to the Constitution…but because that’s just who we are. We are the TrueBlood American’s who will embrace the Evil before us in order to defeat it. We see the bigger picture…as it affects the future of our children and the Nation as a whole. People like us are the ones who will be found shoulder to shoulder on the line when/if it comes to that. Trust me…it’s the domestic threats that are the more dangerous. This is the reason that “they” are trying to paint us Veterans as terrorists. We are the ones who will rise up & resist the ongoing overt takeover of our Nation. Looking at it like this does help bring clarity and helps it all begin to make sense…right? That’s because it’s true. There is much going on that most people have their heads in the sand about. America…we no longer can afford for YOU to wait for someone else to do something about the problems our nation is facing. Stand up & become involved. Your country needs you. Learn the Truth. End this rule by secrecy that has been allowed now to go on for far, far to long. Never forget your veterans, America. For a nation that does…is soon itself forgotten. Hooyah & God Bless America’s Patriots such as Chris Kyle & Chad Littlefield. Again…a big THANK YOU for every active & former serving military man/woman of this great Nation…!!!

        • Brian Farrell

          amen brother

        • bychoice

          Well said, BrotherPatriot. Thank you and all those who sacrifice so much to keep us safe from our enemies from afar. We can only pray that our fellow citizens will wake up to the dangers within.

        • keith

          Brother Patriot: well said and kudos from another former sailor…..we all need to watch each other’s backs cause there are those wanting to insert their political knife….all veterans will be with you and take back this great nation!

      Thank you BrotherPatriot, you and all other men and women that serve this country are HEROES! God bless ou all….

    • Dorothy Chilson Rodel

      Thank You also and all your brother warriors. My prayers daily.

    • Brian Van Vleet

      SIR thank you from an old ARMY guy for your service

    • BushmillsGuy

      Thank You for your service!

  • aznative

    Even Namath would be a better president then this imposter in our White House.

  • Zoey

    Unfortunately, what is getting out there more than the good he did was that he was wearing that coat. He did something outstanding to honor a National Hero but wore a fur coat (something that is quite unpopular these days). I have seen only one post (this one) about him honoring Chris and many posts on all the animals that were harmed for the coat he is wearing. Hopefully everyone who knows of the GREAT thing he did can be sure to post and re-post and talk about it so that people think about that and remember that he did a great thing by honoring Chris rather than what he is wearing.

    • Marna McAlexander

      You have to seriously wonder about the priorities of people who woulds pick the coat to gripe about.

      • Russell

        Amen !

    • Russell

      Focus on the message not what he is wearing. I served this great country, stay on point, which is Joe honored a fallen hero !

    • Malissa

      If the “fur” is even real.

    • pen44

      Back in the day, Joe Namath was known for his fur coats….and, yeah, it is likely real fur…get over yourselves, environuts. And, no, I’ve never worn fur, and have campaigned for wildlife since 1970!!!

    • ShadowMe

      Back in the “day”, when Joe Namath was Broadway Joe and the biggest draw in the NFL, he wore fur coats quite often – especially beaver (if I recall correctly). That industry has almost disappeared, and maybe he was giving it a little shot in the arm, but that was Joe being Joe. God Bless Chris Kyle, and thanks for your service.

      • ShadowMe

        One more opinionated comment on Broadway Joe’s fur coat… it looks like the old Joe swag, but I don’t like what they did to Lassie! And one has to wonder about those who complain about a wild animal being used for a human’s comfort when the life of a true American hero has been lost and the “guy in the coat” is celebrating that hero’s gifts to his country.

    • Rebecca Creel Merriman

      what’s really amazing is that those very same people commenting about the fur coat are wearing leather shoes, belts, carrying leather purses. I guess they think those things come from a leather tree.

    • keith

      do you, Zoey, wear leather shoes? Do you use any wooden items? Do you eat meat, eggs or dairy? Did you know that plants have a very intricate communication system? What can you use or eat that did not come from some living thing? Granted, all living things should be treated humanely but we do need animal products. What is your stand on “women’s reproductive rights” as you mourn the pelts in Joe’s coat? Go tell it to the Eskimos who would die were it not for seals and whales because where they live that is the only source of food, and they have the greatest respect for the animals which support their life. I would love to have a parka made from wolves pelts. (and here in Montana we can legally hunt wolves[gasp!] as they are prospering)


    i thought he was talking about the coat, what’s up with that?

    • Malissa

      Up with what?


        THE COAT!

        • ShadowMe

          I am wondering A. who would be “the type to wear a fur coat.” B. Why can’t you take a man seriously while wearing fur? At one time long ago, the ONLY outer wear worn was of fur or skins. I guess we’ve come a long way, baby. We don’t wear fur anymore (but are we really better people than we were back then?)

        • WARIII

          If you do’t think Joe is a fur guy, what about when he wore panty hose if a comercial !


            Right, I’d forgotten about that! lol He’s a great guy, I’m sure. I think it’s that the fur coat looks effeminate. I think it’s awesome that he honored Chris Kyle, the pic just caught me off-guard (NPI) :))

          • Darryl Groner

            Let me guess, you weren’t around in the 60s and 70s . LMAO!



          • Darren Lee

            No doubt Joe will send over a letter of apology for failing to get your approval before he chose what to wear. ;)


            I don’t believe it’s that serious, Mr Lee.

        • Marcus127

          Attack the Messenger…..spoken like a true Huggy Fluff!

        • TimeForaDivorce

          You are clueless. Namath is famous for wearing a fur coat on the sidelines of his games during the 60s and 70s – before you freaks began demonizing anyone who wore fur coats. (yet strangely have no problem killing 3rd term human fetuses) Anyone who knows anything at ALL about American sports knows this. I’m sure he was wearing it in a goofy, remember the old days kind of way.

  • 4MeNoRinos

    Rest In Peace Chris Kyle and thank you Joe Namath for remembering and honoring him.

  • Mike

    I wouldn’t want Namath honoring me..~

    • Russell

      You are a clown ! What have done for this great nation, except complain about something that isn’t part of the point being made here.
      Maybe you should reassess your priorities.

    • ShadowMe

      And I’m sure you will get your wish…

    • Slawburger

      move to north korea … butt licker

    • TimeForaDivorce

      Daily Kos called. They’re short one idiot. Not that there aren’t hundreds there to cover for you.

  • John Albaladejo

    What a classy guy! And a Patriot too! Yeah, you go Broadway Joe!

  • Take Detour

    Good on you Joe!

  • airforcevet73

    I am so glad Joe showed his support for Chris. Chris was one of the few heroes I have in this world, he was a man who was making a difference in the lives of veterans he never even met. And he never backed down from his principles or his love of America. If you have not read his book, it is an awesome read. And let’s not forget Chad Littlefield who was there to help this young man also, so often we remember Chris but forget about Chad, his death was equally tragic for this country and his family. And although Obama ordered flags posted at half mast for a drug addict like Whitney Houston, and never spoke of Chris he will always be remembered by the ones who found him to be what our president has never been, a true American hero.

    • Sherry Welch

      airforcevet73, thank you for your service. I would just alter your last sentence to say “he will always be remembered by the ones who found him to be what our president has never been, a true American.”

    • Tina Hill

      Well said airforcevet73!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • BrotherPatriot

      Very well said and yes, we often forget to mention Chad Littlefield but his loss is no less important. Both were TrueBlood American Patriots. If only the pretender sitting at the highest office of our land had even a smidgen of the honor Chris & Chad had in their little finger’s. After researching this puppet, Obama…I believe it’s very possible that the powers behind him that catapulted him into his position, knew that Barry Soetoro wasn’t Natural Born & that he MAY not even be an American citizen. Now…imagine that if it’s true. How could that be? The answer is due to the fact our country is being ran through secrecy & the secret societies are pulling the strings behind the curtain. Don’t we have standing as American citizens to demand to know if our Commander in chief is even one of our citizen’s? No? Well…imho, anyone who says no to the above who is serving as one of my public servants…those people need to be fired & find a different job because it’s obvious they are NOT serving the Will of We the People…but most likely are instead…serving the New World Order. Wake up, America. The NWO & Illuminati are very real so get over it America and then…figure out what we collectively are going to do about it. Arm yourselves with the Truth. Hooyah & God Bless America and her Patriots!

      • beccaroni57

        Brother Patriot, no imagining, it is the only plausible, it is the horrible truth!!! Wake up America!

  • pen44

    Right on, Joe!!

  • John Mercer

    Thanks Joe you did great by honoring Chris Kyle at least you did more than Obozo ever did.

  • terrythecork

    What if it was Joan Rivers in a fur coat?

  • Lucy

    Thank you, Joe Namath. You are a true American. Rest in peace, Chris Kyle. You are not forgotten.

  • Doug Kemp

    U r the man Joe Willy………………..God Bless Kyle.

  • Jeff Boot

    You said he was killed by a solider which is false, he was killed by a Marine.

  • Francis Vetter

    Thank You Joe!! Thank you.

  • Johnny Mosley Sr.

    You bunny lovin tree huggers make me sick ,all things were put on earth for the use of MAN, better honor their creator than things and I agree Odumma is doing all he can to destroy this country,they will pay for their mistakes one day,maybe not in this life, they will.

  • Chris Thompson

    A young former Alabama quarterback takes a few moments to honor a fallen Navy Seal. No greater honor than to serve ones country-no greater honor than to have a great quarterback honor him. Y M E X

  • Ralph Brandt

    This is a well known with class.

  • Lemrob

    Thank you Joe for remembering Chris Kyle. May God Bless you and all of our elite Seals who have served and are currently serving. You are the best. RIP Mr. Kyle. You will never be forgotten. You were the greatest Seal that will ever be.

  • Mike Blust

    Way to go Joe. Great tribute to a great Man.

  • Glen Saunders

    Well done Joe. Paying attention Obama? This is how America honors her hero’s.

    • TimeForaDivorce

      Of course Obama wasn’t paying attention. Narcissists only pay attention to themselves.

  • Evelyn Glover

    Yes, the Roman games served their purpose as is the games we have today. In fact the games are taking over religion as more and more people get fired up for the games, more and more churches are closing for lack of people on fire for God. Wonder how many of the people who went to see the super bowl went to church Sunday morning?

    • Evelyn Glover

      Yes, I have always liked Joe Namath. You see in him the gentleman he is and he doesn’t mind expressing his feelings about a fellow American who was doing good in the world and was taken all too soon.

    • phdkremlinonthecharles2

      Just a tad judgemental aren’t we???

  • Goodcents

    Thanks Joe for giving Chris Kyle honor. When your convictions for this country are true and real it shows. As you were contributing honor to the life of a hero that unfortunately was taken to soon. Obama was dancing around and spinning the heck out of a load of crap w/O’Reilly………

    You KNOW this admin is muzzie because they’re threatening Israel with sanctions if they do not comply with the demands Kerry & ovomit are making. Joe is honoring Chris Kyle and this admin is still calling the Ft Hood shootings “work related violence”. Someone tell me why I should believe ovomit is a Christian.

    • Jim Bob

      He isnt a Christian. Theres a video floating around from before he was POTUS where he calls himself a muslim.

  • Lawrence Little

    Joe Namath is more relavant than Obama.

  • Serena Vann

    Way to go Joe!!!!!

  • Ray Nicini

    Joe Willie is Classy….Be proud Beaver Falls

  • Dennis Salb

    Joe, I love the bracelet, but give the coat back to your wife.

  • Butch

    God bless Chris Kyle, Chad Littlefield and their families. The state of Texas flew flags at half staff in honor of these American heros yesterday. That is more than the ovomit administration has ever done, but what do you expect from a muslim from Kenya his own wife stated this in one of her talks. The time has come we must take OUR country back!!! ARA

  • seal76

    Broadway Joe has always been a classy guy. Hoyaah Joe!

  • stef51

    What a nice tribute…but wearing fur? Really :(

    • RedMeatState

      it was good enough for Lewis and Clark, and Davey Crockett.

      • stef51

        They did not have the choices we do not. No reason to kill an animal for THEIR COAT.

  • Edwin Knight

    Too bad we could not see it, but thank you anyway Joe, more than the POS POTUS has done !

  • Nelson Lane

    Dat coat doe..

  • Teletwang101

    Namath. Class act all the way. The coat… probably better on the wife, Joe. BUT… a man’s coat is his own business.

  • Snookyjack50

    Thanks, Joe, you are a true patriot and a REAL man!

    Joe is my hero

    Way to go, Joe. Oh, and I don’t care what PETA had to say about your coat, I loved it!

    You show them all what a true patriot looks like. God bless you, my friend.

  • mjnellett

    You are still a class act Joe Namath, and thank you for honoring a true American hero.

  • Steve Tuter

    joe wore the jacket for nostalgia cuz thats what he wore back in the day!

    • M75462

      I had to explain that to my 28 yr old daughter. She was amused.

  • jabwocky

    Well done Joe, Kyle will never be forgotten as long as we keep him alive in our hearts… :-)

  • M75462

    Joe. You made the Super Bowl super. Even though I was a fan of Johnny Unitas at the time. I saw you once in the airport at Miami International walking with your Jets suit bag on your shoulder. No handler just you and some guy who came to pick you up. Man, you were a giant walking by.

  • LoriPatriot

    Kyle was not killed by his fellow solider pal. Obama’s Muslim Bro pals took Kyle out and framed the soldier so Obama could push no guns for vets and people on anti depressants LIKE MANY VETS ARE from this 13 year war. Obama has never called Mrs. Kyle as per Beck last week or acknowledged Kyle. Obama is a Muslim backed anti US Marxist fraud who is destroying our military and their morale. REMOVE AND ARREST THE TYRANT WHILE WE STILL CAN.

  • Ron Shall

    It isn’t supposed to be a debate about the president, a famous man was honoring a fallen veteran and please just respect that. I am not happy with war politics, but a sailor was killed. When you bring politics into an event like this, it takes away from the tribute and makes it feel less than honorable. Our soldiers and sailors, veterans or active duty and reserves, I believe, all deserve everybodys highest respect.

  • oldvet

    I watched that coin toss twice & I still haven’t seen what Namath supposedly did.

  • Jim Bob

    That was cool for him to recognize a hero like Chris!

  • JohnSvengali

    Broadway Joe is a real American; he used his status to honor a hero. Well done, Joe.

  • Joseph Taylor

    Great Americans like Chris Kyle and Brian Terry are men of Honor and SHOULD be remembered for their service and considered American Patriots and Roll Models instead of a corrupt smooth talking politician that’s got a silver tongue trying to destroy the very things our fallen Patriots stood for! American’s needs more men of honor and less men of disgrace!

  • akl

    The half time show was NOT paid for by taxes.. get your facts stright.. nor was super bowl.. people pay thousands and up to see super bowl and as for the half time show.. to be on the field that was another expence.. oh and as for security its local las enforcement and if the stadium asked for mot then the military steps in.. but the men and women of the military did NOT get paid souly to do the Super Bowl they do it cause its thier job..

  • Mark Kozina

    Would someone please explain why I just got the Chris Matthews tingle up my leg when I was this.

  • Charles Murphy

    class act, Thank You Joe!! shame on Obama and Hillary

  • W5TFW

    Thanks Joe ! OUR POS PRESIDENT couldn’t even say THANK YOU !
