    Picture on the net yesterday taken at the KP Stadium. A Forest fan stood next to a Derby fan, both paying their respects. Some things are more important than football rivalry.

    RIP all 5 victims

    A tragedy indeed 5 lives lost, families grieving, but not the way you and I will probably die, we can't afford a helicopter. That is not aimed as a comment against those involved but a comment against a millionaire life style. A helicopter taking off from a stadium with the rank and file still around is fraught with danger. Thank God there was not more casualties.

    Wasn't it about 20:30 that it happened? Fortunately there were very few left about at the time. I do, however, get your point Sawls.

    Pre season, Feijenoord have a fans' day at their stadium, de Kuijp. Over 50 thousand fans in the ground. Traditionally they have a chopper land in the centre circle. One by one, all the new signings are announced, and they depart the 'copter to greet, and be greeted by, the fans. If the 'copter drashed inside the ground....... doesn't bear thinking about.
