In 2011, John Taylor attended Britannia Stadium to support the Blackburn Rovers in their English Premier League match against the hometown Stoke City. That is where Taylor collapsed and died after getting hit by a 25-pound trashcan thrown by a fellow Blackburn fan. In the end, the coroner deemed the incident “death by misadventure." Save the sympathy cards though, witnesses alleged that Taylor attempted to "head" the trash bin that was thrown his way, a fact that his family disputed.
