Did he talk about sharks on here ? He was into Valerie and Ron Taylor shows when he was younger.
Sharks thread on the GENERAL board.

Its fair to say that he wrote heaps on sharks and provided copious amounts of information

Yes! And when things got off topic, he'd pop up with another report of an attack. We all know the difference between provoked and unprovoked, and to beware of the shallows. Especially on a Saturday for some people!

I no longer swim on a Saturday due to Ron's statistically backed advice. Not even in the backyard pool.

I haven’t been able to post to pass on my heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones.

Ron took the time to send me a PM some time ago as I was having some issues at work which ended affecting me. He sent me his advice on the matter, his experience and if I needed a talk to message him.

Ron was Mr Stats Man. If you wanted some clarification to back up what you were trying to convey , confirm or query , he was a keyboard away.

His theory on our ocean ‘predator’ the shark was great reading.

Im still shocked and saddened by his passing.

RIP peace Ron…….

I wrote some things about Lee/Ron (Hubbard) on his death but failed to mention one of his other great contributions to this site.

He was an avid (paid) subscriber to the Herald Sun and The Australian and would helpfully scrape Richmond content for PRE.

It allowed all of us to read it, free.

He did this without asking and often on request, even to those like me who didn’t see eye-to-eye with him on almost everything not related to the AFL or Richmond.
