|Quoting Cornish (Reply 11):|
I knew he had been very ill, but didn't realise it had got so bad.
When I heard the news about Richard Burns being diagnosed with brain tumor, I thought that it must be something he can win. After all, he was only 32! In fact, all this season, I was looking for news on his comeback.
I just visited his website and looking at photos of Richard Burns, he still looks so live, it was almost impossible for me to realize that he's gone.

Best brought on all his problems by himself too, I never felt sorry for him
You're absolutely right. OK
, every premature death is sad in its own way and both Richard Burns and George Best died too soon, but I heard all kinds of crying over Best and his dealing (or not dealing) with alcoholism and how it was the main reason for the deterioration of his health, BBC played over and over that video when Best was talking rubbish on TV
totally drunk and everybody should feel sorry for him.
On the other side, we have Richard Burns who could have easily be his son and who fought such a horrible disease and almost nothing was said.
You're free to do so. I'm really angry, too.
