What an awful thing to happen to Ritch. I am shocked. I hope that he pulls through. :cross:

I am so saddened & shocked to read that someone could do such a horible thing to Ritch. My thoughts & prayers are with Ritch & his family. That that he pulls through this & fully recovers. Get well, buddy. You're in my thoughts.

Poor Ritch. That's horrible. Absolutely HORRIBLE. My thoughts are with you, man. :(

The attacker is a *frig* neanderthal savage. I wish someone like Frank Castle existed in real life.

Well I don't know Rich but what a stupid cowardly move by another typical moron on the streets on Gangcouver.
I saw this on the news the other night. I sure hope he's ok. Too many fools living amungst us all.

Ah, is it certain this is 3rd? The name was "Ritchie Dowie or was it just a typo? I don't recall 3rd ever being called Ritchie online.

Either way it's just friggen awful.

Yes, this is Ritch Dowrey who posts as 3rd Down on the boards.

I am at a loss for words about this.

That fricking coward that sucker punched him.

I'm with you, Brian, because only the lowest forms of life sucker punch. Hopefully, Mr. Homophobic Tough Guy gets his just deserves in jail that includes all things really nasty.

Get well, Ritch, 'cause you told me that you were comin' to Cowtown for GC and I'm holdin' ya to it!

Oh, I was really hoping it was a case of a guy with almost the same name. Damn. I talked with Rich many times and always looked forward to meeting him next time BC hosted the GC. I truly hope I still can. He's a guy who will always speak his mind and I admired that, even if he annoyed the hell out of some. The CFL Community can't lose another great one so soon! :?

Such a senseless tragedy. Hang in there Ritch - you're in my prayers.
