A controversial figure in many respects but a man whose leadership took the club to ridiculous heights during parts of hos tenure.

Probably the man responsible for dragging the game into the professional era.

Didn’t get everything right but a fearless administrator who was Wigan to his very core.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

One of the most pivotal figures in the club's history. Very sad news.

Agreed. And I sometimes wonder where the sport would be now if his original plan for superleague had been accepted, as controversial as it was.

On a personal note, he was responsible for assembling a team that played some of most amazing rugby I ever saw in my life - and for that, I'll always be grateful.

An extraordinary visionary who gave us the greatest 10-15 of our lives. Despite not being to everyones taste he delivered time and time again (not just at Wigan). I think back to that World Cup in the early nineties and the ticket sales were through the roof for the vast majority of the games.

It's a real pity he's passed, I was hoping that Rads would have interviewed him this year as he has done other legends.

Let's hope Maurice is watching over us at Tottenham and can guide us to a win.

RIP.

Really sad news. If I think through life and about my happiest memories as a child, they were going to Wembley with family or down to Central Park to watch that star studded team and he was the main figure in making all that possible. He was too ambitious for Rugby League in many ways but I wish he had been 40 years younger this past decade.

RIP

Very sad news. During his time at the helm our team set records that I don’t think will ever be matched. Mr Lindsay’s efforts meant so much to those of us who had endured supporting the club in the late 60s, 70s and early 80s. Thanks Maurice.

One of the true visionaries of our game at both club and more importantly international level. Who would have thought we could fill Central Park V PNG or OLD Trafford and Wembley for International games.

I remember speaking to him after that 1st game in Perpignan, and I said to him "We need a #6"
His reply "We've got a good un but it's next season"
Sure enough Trent Barrett arrived the following year.

R.I.P. Maurice

I used to see him at games home and away before he was revealed as the leader of a four man “ginger” consortium that wanted to take control of the club. Up until then I just thought he was a corporate sponsor. I also met him once and (although I was quite inebriated at the time) thanked him for all that he had done for the club. A truly great character who changed the course of Wigan RL and rugby league in general for ever.
