Hi all.

A few of you know this already but I thought I should post a thread on here anyway, for those who don't.

Ian (aka Dr Mantis Toboggan) has unfortunately passed away. I appreciate there may be some suspicion about this given my past history of posting RIP threads for people who had not in fact died (which I now deeply regret). Unfortunately others in our friendship group have been banned so I am the only one left to deliver this message.

His sister posted on social media this morning:

It's unclear what happened but police have said that there is evidence to suggest Ian had been using his phone at the wheel. They said his phone's browser window was open on a 1ff page - quite fitting given how much he meant to this place and vice versa. Equally fittingly he was in the middle of a post about the Nintendo Switch imbroglio, a matter about which I know he was pleased to have seen resolved after many months of campaigning.

I do wonder if Tractor Boys and Saddlerrad had just sent the Nintendo when they said they would, would Ian still be alive? I also wonder about Oaf's part in all this, given how little he did to prevent any of it from happening.

If they can sleep at night, good on them. I couldn't.

I know many of you didn't get on with Ian but he was a huge part of our community and was just 24 years old. That's no age at all and is a terrible loss to his friends and, particularly at this time of year, his family.

It is unlikely I will post again on this forum.

Thank you, and RIP Ian.

What? He's alive at 1FF.net ffs, so he must be a Messiah. Respect
Hi Dirk. I know you mean well but unfortunately that is not Ian - we have a joke together in our group chat and the account is a parody and being run by Son of Cod, who will verify this once he feels able to post again.

This is likely to be my final post on the forum.

Wait a minute. Am I being punked here?

Why should SoC (who btw registered at 1FF only a few days ago ) should make "a joke" and registering as "Doctor Mantis Tobbaggan" too at 1FF where nobody knows this Doc? (and Doc Mantis was online at 1FF one hour or so ago btw).

Nah, sorry. I learned in the 1FF thread at 1FF net (I am sure you know about it as you registered there too a few days ago) that at least one former member here was so appalled of those fake "....has died" threads that he left this forum.

Hi Dirk.

let's take it to PM because Ian's family might be reading this.

This year just gets worse. Can't wait to see the back of 2017.

RIP

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
Is this real? If so, that’s the oddest and most disrespectful announcement of this type that I have ever read.

There is no doubt in my mind that Ian is now in a better place, namely the kingdom of heaven.

He could be a bit of a c*** at times but really he had a heart of gold. I do believe he dedicated his working life to helping out those less fortunate than himself.

God reserves a special place for folk like Ian at the top table. From him we came and to him we shall return. RIP Ian, YNWA. There is a place beyond this mortal coil that only the righteous shall savour.

Seems like everyone either dies or is a pedo these days, which makes me very suspicious about those still active on this forum.

I am shaking as I read this.

A friend of mine died in similar circumstances recently. its been a terrible year and I'm glad to see the back of it. The bristol result didnt help this week either.

things like this and bradley lowery dying put things into perspective. Football may be a game but its more important than that.

rip.

Ian wasn't just a friend he was our saviour, without him people would be allowed to just do as they please during competitions

RIP Ian
