    Gambling with drugs can be deadly.

    I'm glad you amended this rather than seeking yet another cheap laugh from the death of a young man with - as you are aware - family and friends just like the rest of us.

    Condolences to his family - particularly his parents - with whom he was staying.

    It's a shame our society keeps treating drug addicts as criminals. RIP.

    Moderators, please delete this thread ASAP. It reflects poorly on all Manly fans.

    Sorry, here is the sincere tribute I should have posted. Excerpt from SBS news



    http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2014/04/28/ex-nrl-player-tandy-found-dead


    Tandy, who had a gambling problem, left Melbourne for the Bulldogs during the 2010 season only months after winning the NRL premiership which was later stripped from the Storm for salary cap breaches...


    Tandy was banned for life from the NRL for match-fixing...


    Earlier this year, he was again in the headlines for the wrong reasons.

    Tandy was accused of being the "hired muscle" in the kidnapping of a man in January on the NSW Central Coast over a drug debt worth tens of thousands of dollars.

    He had been due in court next month.

    I can see the humour in the lines i must admit but the timing is the difference between humour and poor taste.

    To be honest it is the lack of respect by knowing it is in poor taste, knowing that family members might be reading yet still posting anyway--- i just don't get that head space of posting it anyway.

    So disappointing and sad on so many levels. He's someone's son, friend, and provided fans with entertainment. Unfortunately it looks like he mingled with the wrong crew, but people do their best in life given the circumstances.

    My deepest Condolences to the Tandy family. Thoughts and prayers are with you at the tragic time.

    Death no matter is so final, everlasting and soul crushing. Trust me, I know of late :( Support this young man. If he had more positive support maybe this tragedy could have been avoided.

    Just saw this on NRL.com. I was never happy with his life choices but I really am sad now for another death too young and for the many family members affected. To those who may have pushed him into a terrible gambling decision (and most know who) then you leave the highest level of a foul taste in the general public's mouth. Like certain high profile ICAC participants I can only hope you all end up behind bars.
