Nod to Rob from S.B.N.C

Today I was doing my daily check of Nerf YouTube channels and when I got to S.B.N.C I was initially happy to see a new video. I was not until I read the title and watched the video that I realised what was happening.

Unfortantly it appears to be the end of one of the great Nerf channels. I don't fell it's my place to go in to any detail as this is done during the video, but will say that I will really mis the content. I wish Rob all the best for the future.

Long live S.B.N.C!!

I'm planning to embroider myself a patch: "July 2013-October 2016: Always wear clean undies" and pop it on one of my Velcro pouches as  a continuing nod to the wonderful Aussie radio talk show host that is Rob. Very Happy

I was definitely saddened to hear just how tough things had gotten for him. I wish him the best of luck, I cannot begin to imagine how difficult things must be for him right now! He will be missed, but his mental health and personal life definitely have to come way before our hobby. I hope that one day, years from now, he'll be able to pick up a Nerf blaster again and enjoy the hobby he loved so dearly, but for now he has made a graceful exit.

The worrying thing (for me) is I understand much of where he is at.  I was fortunate enough to keep my job a few years ago when everything else fell apart.  Hopefully he will get through this

Really gutted for him tbh, that video is just right from the heart- been there and done that, but I wouldn't have had the balls to make a video about it and put it on the internet! Hard enough to tell your family and friends.

Make two and I'll pay postage to send the other one to Rob.

I think this is touching.

It's also quite instructive.

I feel sense of gratitude for Rob sharing this so that we can all hear it.

Thanks, Rob, for sharing something as difficult as this. I for one have not only listened with my heart in my mouth, but also taken some life lessons and pointers from someone more experienced than me.

We need to keep looking out for each other; I've already seen and heard of examples of this within the Britnerf community, where caring individuals have been concerned about burn-out and each others' welfare; hence "keep looking out for each other"! Life balance is cool.

Two and only two. I'll send it probably early next week; I've got embroidery to do for the rest of this week. Smile

While that sentiment is lovely, might that not just be kinda painful for him though? A reminder of the hobby life is forcing him to give up?

...or he'll accept it as gift from some of the friends he made in the hobby. A token that we are thinking of him through such a tough time in his life and the he made a positive impression on our lives.

He's going to cry either way.

A fair point. I guess I didn't think of it in that way!

Seems like one gutsy dude, to stick all that up on the net.
Hope to see him on the mend soon and back in action one day.
