Shattering news for many people to wake up to,  not many legendary Victorian players left.    And with this sh1tty weather cricket finals cancelled,  watching miss rolling down some leggies in a two day game would have been cathartic.

DrE is no more... you ok with that harmonica man?

What a talent & what a life! It's as though he was on schoolies for 35 years. I doubt if anyone packed more into his life than Warnie did.

Shocked, but not surprised.
Warnie lived his life like every day was his last, so it was always going to end this way.

Changed the game of cricket and influenced an entire generation of leggies.

Donated his one and only Test Cap (bought for a million) to help Vic bushfire victims 2 years back.  The mark of the man.

I'm not a huge cricket fan but I just love sportspeople with arrogance, character and showmanship. SKW had all that in spades, always seemed to know what to do, always executed when needed, gave plenty of lip along the way. His off field iwas equally legendary and is the stuff a lot of people dream about. Loved him and has been taken way too soon.
RIP GOAT, give em hell up there along with Deano and Bacchus.

The interesting thing is that Warnie monstered batsmen psychologically in a way that was pretty unusual for a spinner. He behaved more like a fast bowler. After every ball, his theatrics highlighted that it was only a matter of time until he would claim the batsman's wicket. He would will the batsmen into making this come true. He was like a tiger stalking its prey with the prey freezing in fear.

Before Warnie, cricket was dying in this country, if not across the world.  He gave the entire game the jolt it needed, and he will never be forgotten because of that.

Big personality who relished a big moment, and rarely failed to deliver.  Also, can't help thinking the Saints would have cracked their second (and more) flag if Warnie had stayed on the footy field. 

I feel really deflated by his passing.

All the best to his family, and his wide collection of friends across the globe.

This is now the longest premiership drought in the history of the Carlton Football Club - more evidence of climate change?

It seems horribly unfair for a player like Mike Gatting that they will be remembered because they were victims of a Warne freak delivery, yet it is appropriate for Warne!

No-one mention Daryll Cullinan.  Warne's greatest sap.  Dismissed him 12 times.

Warnie was a scallywag and a hell of a nice bloke.

The best spin bow;ler ever. As I said, a scallywag, but he was our scallywag.

A great cricketer and great bloke. So sad that he had to go so young.
I spent most of my money on Women and grog.
The rest I just wasted.
