    Dale Earnhardt died because he refuse to wear a safety device that was recently developed and proven to work.

    There are a few big names who are missing. Hank Gathers is the first that comes to mind. Even though I’m American I know there are a LOT of soccer players abroad who have died on the pitch of fatal heart attacks. There was recently a Greek (I believe) volleyball player who died.

    The article is called 10 Athletes That Died While Playing… not TOP 10 Athletes. If they were choosing the best athletes to ever die while playing a sport, this list would likely be much different. Why does everyone have to complain about such minor details?

    A list about fallen sportsmen without including Ayrton Senna is simply a joke. His was the most shoking death in auto racing and perhaps in sports overall.

    what about marc vivian foe? or owen hart

    If I recall correctly the same year Earnhardt crashed into that wall in the Daytona 500 NFL offensive tackle Korey Stringer died in Vikings camp of heatstroke complications.

    I can’t believe there’s no football in here – the proper football.

    You should proof read before posting. Spell check doesn’t catch everything.

      You should too. Proofread is one word. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
