    I saw that too.

    You will be missed ORB!!!

    RWO is lessened by his departure. Very sad.
    I'd love for someone to explain why the 150th anniversary of Red and White Footy was ignored by both the club and it's fanbase in 2017

    Sad news - I used to sit with ORB in the old MA Noble - haven’t seen him for about 4 years but he battled hard against cancer and retired down south - we shared a couple of grand final day breakfasts at Sweethearts in south Melbourne - I’m sure he’ll keep yelling hard for the boys.

    Oh Old Toy Boy Roy!!!
    How sad. I met up with him a few times. A lovely man.
    My condolences to his family.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    For the record, Ian joined RWO on 10 March 2004, just 14 months after RWO was created. He remained active for 13 years.

    For those who are interested, here are his posts over the years: RWO - RedAndWhiteOnline.com

    One of the pioneers that have made RWO what it is.

    Condolences to Ian's family and friends.
    Weird, I joined September 2003 and thought Ian joined earlier - his knowledge of AFL was certainly lightyears ahead of mine. Catching up for a beer after a day game was one of the highlights of my early Swans years. We won Swans' Trivia together, too, with many long time RWO-ers.

    Lovely bloke, met him at a function long ago. He knew his football, and I was glad to hear him.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    That was one of my posts, Nico. So sad to see another old Royboy leave us.
