Footballer dies from Head Injury

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSyAU...eature=related

Hrvoje Custic went into a wall headfirst and passed away days later. I cannot imagine being on the pitch at the time, seeing everyone run towards him straight away is hard as they can see he's gone into spasm. Sad times.

Condolences to the team, family and supporters of Hrvoje Custic.

RIP


On an interesting note, the team that Custic was playing against is HNK Cibalia, Mirko Filipovic's old team.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Yeah I saw this and it's very sad. I thought he died on the way to the hospital though?

Wiki says he died yesturday.. the game was on 29th March.

"He was immediately transported to the local hospital and underwent surgery the following day. Following the surgery, he was in an induced coma and his condition remained stable until 2 April 2008, when a believed infection caused a rapid increase in his body temperature. His condition immediately worsened and in the early afternoon of 3 April 2008"

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

Ok, I saw the pictures of him on the stretcher when they were taking him off the field and it was bad.

Can you post them here?

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

I'll try and find them again but if you watch this video at around like 56 seconds they show a couple of shots with him on the going stretcher.

Jeeze, in that one pic it looks like his head ballooned-up. That's truly sad, it was completely avoidable.. really, they shouldn't have barricades like that anymore.
