    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    My great friend, Dick O'Rafferty, who was one of the 10 guys I would invariably go to away games with. Dick died from a brain tumour on Sunday night. His last match was the away defeat in Wales. He was a "voyeur" on foot.ie and would often comment in person to me on posts he saw on the site but he never told me what his nickname or handle was or whether he ever posted.

    A former colleague. Never worked together but would have bumped into him a few times via golf society. An absolute gentleman by all accounts, was speaking to a few colleagues this evening who worked with him and were very cut up at the news. Condolences to you Owlsfan. RIP.

    You've probably seen this, OF and PI, but if not it's a very fine tribute to your friend.
