George Best: Footballer or Alcholic?

Had a conversation about George Best at work today (started with something along the lines of "is he dead yet?").

This got us onto the changing perceptions of him. Those that were around in his football heyday still viewed him as a famous footballer. Those of us that weren't knew him better for being an alcholic. Then again in my case, not being a huge football fan may have had a influence on this.

So I thought this was a good excuse to have another poll...
