I was thinking about the contrast with that other recent (supposed) sporting suicide victim a couple of minutes ago. Whilst Roebuck's death was no less a tragedy, it wasn't quite the shock Speed's was. The former the distant academically minded confirmed bachelor under arrest for a distasteful crime, the latter the warm, grounded friendly family man who'd appeared perfectly at ease only hours earlier on national TV.
The "Why?" in Speed's case seems so very much harder to answer.

Rumour doing the e-rounds that Gary was going to be outed as gay by The Sun.
Dunno what to say, tbh. If there's a grain of truth the mind boggles,
The mind boggles why? Because he *might* have been gay?
Do people honestly still care about that?
I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
Forever, more than just surviving.
THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS LIFE IS MY DIAMOND
Yeah heard this as well but really don't want to speculate.
Football got a bloody awful track record on the issue though thats for sure.
I really don't think the general population give a ****, but if a family man was about to be outed I could see how it might be a contributing factor in what came next.
