Why not give the obits their own section rather than have them under the general sports discussion.
I've seen on other sites where they do this.
That way they have their own section and when there is an update in the title of the thread just put the players name.
Almost turns it into an obit archive of sorts.
Just an idea.

If the mods like the idea, I have no problem with it.

The obituary posts are very informative and a little bit of a history lesson.

Those should each have their own threads.

This being a sports forum and all, I would like to keep the obits to sports figures, only.

Mark me down as someone who likes the individual threads for individual players. Also, I like them for the obscure guys, too, since that's my area of interest. If you're not interested in those threads, don't look!

Sorry about that.

Next time I hear of a sport figure who passes, I'll rush to the forum to start a thread to let everyone know about it. Not much a better way to start my day to see who died who was a member of the sports industry.
