teddd changed his name way back in the day because someone told him that he was just a hater. For doubting Raptors management. In the Babcock era. Because teddd was pretty consistently right.

An origin story! The hater was very difficult to hate. RIP.

I’m very sorry to hear this. He was a good poster. At least he got to see the Raptors win in 2019 but it is too bad he couldn’t see this current Jays team reach their potential.

Condolences to his family.

Damn, this came out of nowhere. He was always one of my favourite posters, and I loved how blunt he was, while being very articulate.

Condolences to his family. RIP, and glad he got to see this team win it all.

Rest in peace to one of the realest posters on this board. Sucks that the Jays missed the playoffs man. He would've loved to see this core in the dance. Hopefully they can win one for him next year.

Rest easy, Hater. I’m glad you got to see the parade. You’ll be missed and fondly remembered. Legend.

Very sad news. Great poster and was always fun to see him comment when anyone else was called a hater.

It's a sad day to hear that one of the most well known mods in The Hater or the poster formerly known as Teddd has passed on. You never really know when it's your time to go and once the grim reaper smiles on you, the only thing you can do is smile back. Thoughts and prayers to his loved ones.

He managed to at least see the Raptors parade and I really wish he could've seen the Blue Jays make noise in the postseason in person, but he'll be doing it from the skies above.

Thank you The Hater for your contributions to this site and to this loud rabid fan base that many including yours truly have come to be apart of.

Sorry raptors fans, you guys lost a great one. Glad he got to see the Raptors bring one home before he passed.

RIP The Hater. Seemed like a good dude, and from what I recall, was respectful and got along with everyone. **** cancer. He seemed like the most loyal and long-standing Raps fan there was, and I’m glad he got to witness the championship.

I went through chemo and radiation too, during the 2019 run. It was a bittersweet time for me but the Raptors brought me so much joy in an otherwise miserable period of my life. Raptors and you guys here continue to be a highlight (mostly) for me, and I’m grateful for everyday.

OMG had no idea. This is truly horrible news.

20 years ago I didn’t often agree with Teddd and his blunt assessments, but as we moved on through the years toward older age, I found our views syncing more and more. Especially enjoyed tag teaming the hot take trolls the last few years.

One of the good ones, one of the old guard: we’ll miss you Hater. :( :beer:
