    RIP Willie, the 'maximum man'! His career didn't really rip up any trees, but he was entertaining to watch and I enjoyed his commentary.

    Had a hard last few years, so quite sad it ended this way for him.

    Always enjoyed his commentary, he’s very well thought of round this way and was apparently always a gentleman with fans.

    Sad news, surprised he was only 66. One of those people who seemed genuinely a nice person.
