Urgent: VetSkinsFan

Postby Countertrey » Sun Jul 24, 2011 12:24 am

It is with shock and great sadness that we announce that our friend, Dave Roberts, known here as VetSkinsFan, has passed away. We are not familiar with the particulars, but we do know that this was unexpected. He is survived by his wife, Tara, and his two children, David Jr, and Matthew. Please keep them in your thoughts, as they mourn their loss.

VetSkinsFan has been a member of the THN family since July of 2007, and was a respected and active member of the forums. His insights and sharp commentary have become a welcome sight. He had served as a member of the Staff for about a year, as well. He will be missed.

As we become aware of more information, we’ll pass it along.

The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

Dave was a good friend, a good father and just a flat out good guy. He will be missed. May he RIP.

It's not a problem. He was a good friend and he'll definitely be missed.

Not to derail the thread too much b/c I know how easily that can happen but I'll try to drop by some (already posted my thoughts on VY which Dave I think shared some of before). I'm reasonably familiar w/ the Redskins via Dave. He'd taken to getting my thoughts on things you guys did lately. But my home so to speak will be on titansreport (use to be titanscentral). You guys are more than welcome to come by there as well if you want some regular football discussions. It's not all about the Titans. We've got some pretty knowledgable football fans over there and I'd love to get some of you guys' thoughts on things (like McNabb who I use to ask Dave about).
