Just as a preface, some of you may not like it, but I had to say/do it.

Around four years ago, I truly starting branching out in my quest for sports knowledge, and about four years ago, I ran into an argumentative figure known to me at the time as only ‘NYSR’.

He and I butted heads on nearly everything NFL related, if I said the grass was green, he would say it was forest green. Eventually the place we communicated shut down and we didn’t see each other for a year or two.

Little did I know that my former adversary would turn into one of my best friends, and yeah – I understand how some of you may feel about ‘online friends’ but when you talk to someone day after day, share personal thoughts, plans, hopes, dreams, etc. then you’re friends – online or not, then you get close to them.

Such a great write-up, TJ! Have read many of Scott's posts and competed with him in the fantasy leagues...so young, so tragic...he will be sorely missed.

Hey Bro, I'm sorry man. I know what it's like to lose a close friend like you had with Scott. You did a great job, I'm sure he is smiling down on you.
