We seem to be filtering out the risk takers, the larger than life characters from so much of sport, business and politics.
Tony Greig was opionated, firm in his ideas, never backward and the cause of God knows how many arguments around television screens and cricket grounds around the world.
I grew up with him and it's hard to believe he's gone. A great character of the game, greatly missed.
My condolences to the late Tony Greig's family. This video tribute from News Limited.
