RIP Tony Greig

I know this is a basketball site and that Tony Grieg was a cricketer, but as an Aussie sports fan who every summer for the past 30 odd years has listened to the commentary on Channel 9 of the former England test captain with the South African accent, its sad to hear of his passing from a heart attack at age 66.

RIP Anthony William "Tony" Greig. You will be missed.

yep,he was a big part of a great australian sporting era,when cricket ruled the summer sport landscape.
these days the ozzies have a huge win and the tv sports report is dominated by f#@&ing soccer.

One of the more entertaining comentators out there, Tony Greig was also a pioneer who helped saved cricket, so for what it's worth mate, you are sadly missed...
