He was a huge Cubs fan like I am as well. I am so glad he got to see the Cubs win the World Series, they hadn't won in 108 years. I will miss him like everyone in here does.

I have to say I was stunned when I read of Gavin's passing.

It was like getting punched in the gut.

 

I was looking forward to his Draft Profile Reports that are so nice to read this time of year.

I've only been mocking for 2 seasons, this season will be my 3rd. His Draft reports gave us so much information. I kinda felt good when teams known for drafting well like the Steelers, Ravens, and Giants happen to draft a player that I had in one of my mocks. I'm sure Gavin's reports contributed.

But I felt even better when Gavin himself had one of my guys in his mocks.

 

R.I.P. fellow Colt Fan, you are already being missed on this forum.

On January 24, 2017, the Colts Forum lost a treasured member of its family, @Gavin

 

Brandon Lee Marshall, known as Gavin to us, was a long-time member (Senior Member and Hall of Famer).  A diehard Colts, Cubs, and Pacers fan, he was active on the forum nearly every day, sharing his thoughts and insights. He had over 25,000 posts and more than 7000 likes. He made us laugh. We learned so much from him; his contributions will be missed.

 

We are not aware of the cause of death, but regardless of the cause, he was taken from us too soon and we'll miss him.

 

So glad Gavin (Brandon) got to see the Cubs win the World Series. And he shared his joy with us. Now he can celebrate with Harry Caray and all other Cubs greats.

 

 

 

RIP Gavin.  We miss you.

 

Please use this space to share your remembrances of our brother Gavin.

I've been away from the Forum for quite some time and was really saddened to hear that Gavin has passed away.

 

He was a good guy and such a knowledgeable fan... and he'll be missed here!

 

Prayers for comfort and strength for his family. :(

One thing I will remember about Gavin is that he, much like Nadine and Superman, was cool-headed enough to squash quibbling on these boards.

 

I am embarrassed that a few times I have gotten into "cat-fights" with other members about silly things.  But each time, someone like Nadine, Superman, or Gavin stepped in and brought perspective.  The amount of respect that we have for these guys, alone, would be enough to cool hot heads, but it's the way they talk to people that builds that respect.  We all have our opinions, and we think we're right, but not all of us respect differing opinions.

 

I will miss Gavin, and I want to "shout out" some respect to all the members and moderators like Gavin.  Your level heads and way of communicating is head and shoulders above the rest.  Gavin was a voice you listened to, whether you agreed with his opinion or not, you respected him.

 

Gavin -  You, along with others, made me a better forum member.  You will be missed.  RIP.

    • I agree. As long as that that person is answering it like an opinion and everyone realizes it's an opinion, then everything is solid. It gets when people are telling opinions as facts that it starts to head south. You see plenty of both, but it's usually just a lot of debating from my point of view. Some good points of view, and some bad ones, but as long as we all acknowledge these point of views as opinions when they are, then I see nothing wrong with it. I think it just gets out of control when there are rumors, mostly during FA and the draft, and people take it out of context at times, myself included.
    •   Well.....   There's good conversation and then there's.....      NOT so good conversation.   And this website has plenty of both.     I'd love to have more of the good kind and less of the NOT so good kind.   Deciding now that a poster here --- any poster here --- knows what Chris Ballard thinks of a player is ridiculous because none of us knows anything.    Ballard may love the guy.    He may like the guy.    He may not like him.   But nobody knows.      So, stating as fact that Ballard doesn't like someone is a dog that just won't hunt.....  
    • Things went our way tonight all around. Pacers win, Hawks and Bucks lose. Now there is a 3 way tie for 5th. It will be interesting to see how we finish.   Bad night with injuries for this team though. We already knew GR3 hurt his calf in practice and then Stuckey and Al Jefferson go down tonight. I actually want to see more Brooks/Ellis/Miles and more Christmas so hopefully they can pick up momentum if we can make the playoffs.
    • I wouldn't call it a flaw at all. In fact, it's the main premise that a sports forum is built around. Trying to put pieces of the puzzle together on certain things and predicting the future. That's how conversation is started a lot of the time in particular and it keeps people engaged. Without people jumping to conclusions with little evidence, it'd just be people reporting facts on twitter and chat on gameday, which wouldn't be a lot of fun by itself.
