Very sad.

 

Wonder whats for the best sometimes....... I dont imagine he's had any quality of life for God knows how long now. Arguable he never could either. :D

Sounds harsh, but it's probably a case of the sooner he goes the better now. My uncle went like this a couple of years back, and it's a pretty miserable existence towards the end.

we having a sweepstake at work for what time he'll go, is that a bit sick and disrespectful?

A tad, yes.

Has anyone ever heard the interviews on the radio/telly with Best's doctor outside the hospital? He always sounds absolutely RAT-ARSED!

You can imagine Best being involved in something like that himself when he was younger. Personally, I think it's a bit sick as someone will be happy when he dies.

For all the drawn-out saga that it's been, it's really sad now that you know he's definitely going to die soon. And all for the sake of drink. :D

Any sadder than a smoker dying of lung cancer or a fat bastard dying of a heart attack?

True that like. Drinking partner? Looks like he's 106, probably only in his late 40's.

I know, I was just curious, that's all. It does seem more self inflicted somehow, but is it really?

Terrible thing, yet my sympathy is tempered- didn't he have a liver transplant some years ago? And still drinking? Not meaning this in a cruel or harsh way, and I would never wish that kind of death on anyone , but fact is he brought it on himself. Tragic tho.

Yes, he has managed to completely knack a new liver in three years, I imagine that takes some doing.

 

It is sad, but it is difficult to have sympathy.

I have no difficulty whatsoever in feeling a lot of sympathy for him. It's not like he made a conscious decision to become an alcoholic.
