    heartbroken, he was one of my heroes growing up.

    He suffered from kidney problems for years, the amount of media he's been doing recently made me forget about it.

    Not sure about the greatest but certainly the first superstar of the game. Kind of similar to Dave had forgotten about his problems with all the media work he was doing through out the World Cup.

    Sad, sad time.

    And he scores goals...!

    Didn't see Fury's fight, heard it was shite but pleased to see him win tbh. Could hopefully breath a bit of life into the heavyweight division. At the same time, once Joshua fights one of these guys, I can't imagine him not absolutely roasting them!

    Also yeah, so great to see GB win the Davis Cup. Not something I'd have ever really expected!

    And he scores goals...!

    Not a suprise, It's been coming for a while. They've lost full or partial rights to the F1, Golfs Open & Masters, the BDO Darts, and the 6 Nations in the last year or so. The BBC do sport well for a publically funded organisation - the cost of getting the rights is far too high nowadays for them to justify the spend.

    I can't believe how poorly SA are performing on their own turf.

    Re: General Non Football Sports Chat

    80,883 turned up to the Melbourne Stars v Melbourne Renegades 20/20 game last night, I was thinking of going but I had work until 6pm and it started at 6.10pm and I live about 45 mins away from Melbourne. A lot of trouble though as the MCC only anticipated a crowd of 45,000 and recently they put fencing around the entry outside as part of some dumb anti-terrorism strategy, apparently 24,000 people got in the ground quite late into the first innings.

    Re: General Non Football Sports Chat

    I feel bad for her. She'd been taking the drug as prescribed by a family doctor for 10 years, it only became a banned substance this year so it seems more like a case of bad communication rather than an attempt to cheat.

    Good on her for coming forward about it rather than hide or try and shift blame elsewhere, just a shame it's likely gonna end her career.

    Tennis career maybe, but she's not exactly hurting for business opportunities off the court so she'll come out of it fine. I was under the impression that there's an argument to be made to not even suspend her for more than 6 months, provided the mitigating circumstances behind her taking the drug add up. I loved her comment when asked if she was planning on retiring, "If I was going to announce my retirement, it wouldn't be in a downtown Los Angeles hotel with this fairly ugly carpet".
