That comes as a bit of a shock. He was certainly an all-rounder in terms of sports commentary and seemed very personable the way he interacted with his colleagues.

RIP Drew.

Just heard this on the ABC news. Quite shocked, and yes, I thought he was younger.

69

heard Mark Maclure interviewed*, he's pretty shocked

Apparently* Drew was watching the Hawks - Dogs game, red in hand, when he died suddenly. Very much unexpected as he and his wife were heading off on a European holiday shortly.

Seems that Morphett was born the day before my dad was in 1948.

Stay tuned...

A high-profile Gold Coast athlete has died after his car crashed into a fence at Mermaid Waters, reports the Gold Coast Bulletin.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman told AAP itís believed the crash at about 7am on Monday.

The man has not been named. His family is still being notified about the incident.

The man is a former national champion and remains heavily involved in sporting circles on the Gold Coast.

He had been taken to hospital in a critical condition.


One of the iron men, or swimmers?

Seems like it was Grant Hackett (who has been an accident waiting to happen for several years now).

Thanks. Seems that Hackett's wiki page was updated too quickly.

RIP Walter Becker, an all-time favourite musician of mine, just so glad I got to see him even once.

Musical genius. Master craftsman, like his bandmate.

Very sad day - a great bassist, guitarist, and songwriter. Average singer at best but so talented musically.

No-one of note has died in a while, and certainly no-one on our lists. Cool
