Bob Saget, 65, from that terrible show in the 80s Full House as well as America’s Funniest Home videos. I didn’t know til about a decade ago he was a comedian! (And a very blue one at that!)
His Aristocrats joke is…from another time but those of the generation can still laugh.

RIP Bob.

Why did he fade away from professional golf so early?
He spent 9 years on the PGA tour until the early 90s after 5-6 years on the European tour, won once in the US and had multiple top 10s. Left the tour in his early 40s so didn't really fade away.

Small article in the HUN today in the sports pages. Can type it all up but the gist of it is..

Gerald Tanner, was Richmond’s oldest living past player, passed away on January 10 aged 100.
Was the third known Richmond player to live to 100.
A country footy star, he played 1 game for the Tigers in 1941, aged 19.

Edit: Reading the article on him on the RFC website, one of his sons, Xavier, played in the Kangaroos 1977 flag
