When things like this happen it puts into perspective all the silly little things we as football fans argue about. A tragic loss to lose your baby. I can only offer my deepest condolences to Billy Sharp and his family (Vital Leeds)

It shows a lot about the character of Billy Sharp. He is playing tonight and has just scored. I am sure he was saying, 'thats for you son.

Devastating new. I may be an Owls fan but at times like this it makes you realise what really important in life and I just wanted to come on here and pay my respects to Billy and his family at this very sad time. My thoughts are with him and his family. And also the people surrounding Doncaster Rovers fc cos as a colleague this type of news always has an impact on the people around him. Once I again my thoughts are with them.
