I saw the 6pm news here in NZ a few hours ago and they said he was critical, so this must be fairly recent.

R.I.P dude, think of it this way, he's probably up there (heaven) hitting the ball around with other legends of the game...

Absolutely devastating news, the bushrangers just wont be the same without him. I am shattered. I hope the 'hero' that hit him gets whats coming and that the legal system works for a change.

Rest In Peace David. What a tragedy. My condolences to the family. I hope justice is served to the bastard bouncer. Someone needs to teach those egotistical wankers a lesson. Not all are bad but a lot are. So no offence to anyone here.

condolences to the family of another fallen cricket great. i sincerly hope this idiot gets what he deserves, as shafted has already mentioned and it sets an example to these cowboy security guards that violence isn't the means to end all. nobody deserves to be treated this way.

I really am shocked that this has happened. It not only shows the mortality of humans, but the indecency, cowardess and downright pathetic aspect of us aswell. It is sickening that this can happen.

My sincere condolences go out to the family, friends, fans of David Hookes who are obviously feeling a whole lot worse than I am. I'm not even old enough to have seen the guy play cricket, or to really know his achievements...I really can't begin to wonder how those who were close to him feel.

RIP David Hookes.

He will be missed

My 2c the person who did this should be showed no mercy, what an utter coward to do something like that, even if it wasnt to an absolute legend, but an ordinary person, there is no excuse for an act like that... pure outrage

And to top it off , the scumbag who hit Hooksy was to appear in court for doing the exact same thing ( didn't kill them though ) to someone else in an Essendon pub not long ago.
Being a boxer , getting punched in the ring will stand him in good stead when he enters jail. :AAHHH:
