George Best’s Funeral on TV

Am I missing something?

George Best is the genius footballer that essentially drank himself to death.. is he not?

Why the hell is the life of a suicide victim being celebrated like this?

What message does this send to kids? Hey it’s OK to have everything and then throw it all away through self destructive drinking and drug taking; don’t worry you’ll still get a hero’s send off.

With modern day footballers being viewed as celebrities and apparently being able to get away with rape because of who they are this all seem very wrong to me.
