RIP Les Murray

Truly one of the great football broadcasters and connoisseur of the round ball game in this country. Sad to see him pass away. My memories of him starting to talk football is a cricket / rugby dominated media will remain with me forever. RIP, you will be missed. :master:

The doctor may have told him yesterday that he will be going home shortly.
