This won't make me popular, but I think people need to get some perspective on this. The death of Marco Simoncelli was tragic, both from a humanitarian perspective and from a sporting one. A 24 year old shouldn't be killed in sport, but it happens- and this risk is why people love the thrill of motorsport. But who remembers the other fallen riders? The men and women that have families & children. Plenty of people are killed everyday and I think we should take a moment to remember them, rather than jump on the celebrity loving band wagon. People are killed in war, crime, hate and all sorts of circumstances. Let Marco rest in peace and move on to caring about people whilst they're still alive, rather than just bitching about why someone elses favourite rider is gay/moaning/miserable etc
