Not sure what to say about this, but hell this is massive news here in Aus at present. Very sad, very tragic, and possibly a catalyst for change, or at least far more public awareness, with such a high profile person falling victim to home domestic violence.

The Adelaide Crows Coach murdered by his own son.

The mum also stabbed by the son but in hospital with non life threatening injuries.
The 22 year old daughter holidaying overseas.
The Crows game on Sunday has been called off in respect for all concerned.
The match result has been pre-determined as a draw.
Has only had his 1st head coaching role since October after a playing career with
3 clubs and assistant coaching jobs with as many also.
Very sad.

Untill today I had never heard of the bloke. If an NRL coach had been murdered I would expect the same response every where in Australia apart from NSW and QLD.

The pre-game show before the AFL tonight was very sombre - you could just see how much the death had shocked and saddened the commentators
