Via Jamey Newberg, there’s some sad news to report:
I'm saddened to report that Ed Coffin, the longtime moderator of the Newberg Report forum/message board, passed away on December 1. Out of respect to Ed & his family, we're going to close the forum, at least for the time being. It doesn't feel right to move forward without him.— Jamey Newberg (@NewbergReport) December 2, 2017
Ed was a longtime poster on the Ranger internet boards — I first encountered him at the ESPN boards, and he was a regular poster here and at NMLR for a long time. Ed posted less often here, but he would appear from time to time, and was a regular reader.
I never met Ed in person, but I interacted with him online enough that it still felt like I knew him, and am saddened by his passing.
Rest in Peace, Ed.
