Sounds like a nice guy. Nice tribute about getting a jersey with his name on it. Very thoughtful.

Ned died January 24, 2001. I joined the Freep forum about the same time he died. I remember being very moved by the reaction from the regulars and have stayed ever since. Deb painstakingly moved the tribute thread from the Freep to our first forum at WorldCrossing which can be read here:

Ned responded to my first post with wit and sarcasm. I called him" Snuffy Smith on acid " or something like that.

Imagine what heaven is like- a 4th and 26 pass complete to Crowell from Ferrotte, Marty DOESN'T take the wind, Eddie Murray's 43 yarder goes down the middle and not wide right, Dave Williams fumbles the overtime kickoff return and the Lions beat the Bears... NED, you put in your time in Lions purgatory here on earth , I'm sure they have won every SB since 2001 for you now!

Wow, I can't believe its been that long. Ned was one of the very few Lion posters who was never rude, insulting, jealous, or made a personal attack against me. RIP

That doesn't mean he liked you. (:

In the beginning, I had to read quite a few of his posts to figure out what he was saying. Then it hit me, that guy was really smart, in a weird sort of way.

I often wondered why he went by Ned T Elbows, which has no tie in with Dave Raymer, that I can figure out. Wasn't the "Elbows" thing related to how much time he spent with his elbows resting on a bar, or something like that. I join with so many on this forum who really miss him.

No, it was a fictional character he used from literature. Ned T was supposed to be the cousin of another Elbows who was the literary character he was mimicking with his dialect. He originally used the more famous character but was bounced for something he wrote in one of the other forums and reincarnated himself as Ned T.

Thanks Mark. When I say "elbows on a bar' I must have been talking about me.

When I came on he was just Ned..... he sure had a way of settling ridiculously long debates in a humorous and effective way.

We could sure use him now.

I tend not to be sentamental...I've lost so many friends in horrific ways over the years that I've accepted death as part of a meaningful life. As such is evident in how Ned has touch those on this forum.

I imagine some of them you bored to death with your inane arguments.

.

Sorry, normally I would have move to the next discussion, but Ned is going to get at least a full 40 posts (one page by my settings) out of his thread.

Isn't there a kicker named Dave Raymer?? I always think of Ned T...(well actually the outpouring of love from y'all) when I hear his name.

According to NFL.com you're thinking of Dave Rayner of the Packers SLF.

Close----very close.
