Why this incredible eulogy for a "sporting genius" who hasn't done anything for 30 years?

That's the question just asked on Any Questions. To which my response is I don't know, I don't care, he was a drunken old sop who wasted his life and the only thing he'd done since I was born was work through a succession of gorgeous women he didn't deserve.

It's the top news headline on Radio 4, the Independent had an 8 page supplement and 5 whole news pages for me to get passed before I got to something I cared about. People die, we move on. People who get replacement livers and still drink despite being told not to were going to die early, can we just get over it and move on now?

It's not news. I couldn't care less either way to be honest.

It'll be gone by the end of weekend - don't let it bother you.

Newspapers have to accomodate all tastes, including the middle aged idiocracy who love to see their heroes fall further than they did. Just suffer it...
