He choked, been following team orders too closely, obviously.

When they are found dangling by a rope as opposed to comatose in front of Dead Or No Deal?

Horrible news, he was a great and honest player on the park who led his clubs and country by example. Perhaps one of the last of a breed of players who did their talking on the pitch and were on it to compete and give 100% week in week out without being corrupted by money and 'stardom'. Judging by the tributes from throughout the football world today a he was a genuine and nice bloke respected and liked by his peers.

It's staggering that people, on here and elsewhere can, within a few hours of this news, make 'jokes' about the death of a young man who leaves behind a wife and two young children.

Whatever the circumstances, and no matter how inconceivable suicide seems to most of us, the sort of depression that leads people to it is a crippling disease, which unbelievably still carries a stigma.

Gary Speed RIP

A great shame indeed. Never a prima donna, just a hard working and honest player who was just starting to make inroads in his managerial career.

Wasn't funny though, and pretty horrible about someone who a lot of fans loved, myself included.

I love you too.

From what I gather it is OK to joke about something as long as it doesn't involve someone with a liking for chasing a pig's bladder.

What is more, suicide is a coward's way out.
