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.
A legend of the game who will be greatly missed. I felt sick to my stomach when I heard the news.
News reports say he was king hit - like others, I hope that justice is done and the bastard reponsible gets whats coming...
Unbelievable here one day gone the next,i really enjoyed his comments on 3AW sports cricket and football he will be sadly missed by everyone and especially the Vic cricket Ass. what i magnificent job he had done to our state cricket team got them to be respected again as a force.
Deepest condolences to all his family and friends,its a real black day for Victoria. may he RIP
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.
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:
