I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I was informed today that Komp has sadly passed away. We held back posting earlier because we were hoping the news was wrong but I'm so sorry to say it's true and now been confirmed. Komp was a one off and a true legend of the Internet from it's beginning especially sports betting and hairy fanny forums. I've never and never will ever meet anybody like him again and although this day has in the back of my mind been coming for a long time I'm shaken and shocked now that it has happened, I'll gather my thoughts and over the next few weeks gather some Komp classics because there are acres of them. I'm in no doubt this thread will grow to the biggest one we have on betnod because everybody knew and has a story about Komp. In fact if it wasn't for Komp I wouldn't have taken to forums, it was his musings and ramblings on PL that had me in stitches and got me hooked, he hooked Mickeypaul the same way too, It was a pleasure to become his sidekick in those early days. I'll talk about him a lot more in the days to come as will no doubt plenty of others, tonight I'm just going to raise a glass to him and contemplate the good days. RIP Komp my friend, you'll be sorely missed. God bless your family too.
