Oh man, that’s terrible. I was talking with one of Estevan’s scouts this morning. He was talking about playing the winner of this series. Terrible news.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Oh no. This is awful. Hope the mentioned "fatality count" is low and that the families of those taken can find peace.

Because it's newsworthy, and because it gives an indication of the scale of this tragedy.

Doesn't "fatalities" give an indication of the scale of this tragedy without pictures?

I gave you a very clear warning of what the link contained. Trying to play forum mom because news and media isn't always happy adds nothing at all to the discussion.

No it doesn't. It's also in a link with a description so you can choose to look or not. No need to put shame on people who don't share your personal values.

This is awful, reports of multiple fatalities..... Unbelievable. One player from Lethbridge on the team, have watched him for years, talked to his Dad in Safeway on Good Friday saying he just got accepted to the U of L. Praying for his safety.

Iíve heard from a source deeply rooted in Jr hockey that the number of deceased is in the high teens. Absolutely gutted. Unimaginable tragedy, can only hope my source is incorrect.

The rumours right now are 12-15. Can only hope that is a FUD induced number and the actual total is much lower.

I didn't look at it. Just seems excessive.
