    I hate to be "that guy",
    But i wonder how many of the car accidents we're Drunk Driving typing things...either the lifter driving, not driving, or the other vehicle.

    I don't think you have to be "That Guy" - statistics would back you up...along with poor vehicle design and bad road conditions, Hey Presto.

    Today at the age of 35 died Velichko Cholakov from Bulgaria who won the bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics. In the morning he felt sick and 10 minutes later he died in the hospital. He was having heart problems. http://www.dnevnik.bg/v_pamet/2017/0...ne_na_tejesti/

    He just buried Dobrev two years ago. Awful.

    I think in homage to Cholakov, we should all shoot a warning shot rep at the centre referee..... probably not as intimidating when its a lot less than 200kg.
