This is sad news indeed. I bought 'Gut Check' and 'The Redskins' From A To Z (both of which he signed for me) and they are a treasured resource for Redskins lore. I also enjoyed meeting with him at a Hogfest, he had a wealth of knowledge and was generous in sharing it.
I consider him a part of our larger CPND community and send my prayers and condolences to his family.
I really liked Rich Tandler, I really didn't know him personally but enjoyed reading his work. Years ago he was doing a book signing for A to Z and I went to get a book for me and my Dad. When I got there it was quiet and slow, I was a little early, and as his signed my Fathers and my book I started thinking of others that would want a copy. After all was said and done I bought eight books that day and gave them as birthday presents to the skins fans in my life.
He was too young and It's a sad day for me I'm really bummed out about this.
I'm so sorry to hear this news! I always felt like Rich was a fan who managed to parlay his in-depth love of the team into a profession. Such a great path to tread. My deepest condolences to his family and to the wider Redskins family.
Well let me add my condolences to his family. Never met him personally but I did enjoy listening to his takes.
Sad day for Redskin fans.

I am shocked to hear this news..I have been a regular reader of his site "Rich Tandler's real Redskins" forever and as many here have stated I got his Redskins A-Z book. I'll have to get that out today and look thru it again in his honor. Deepest Condolences to all his close friends and Family.
I hope the team(who I am certain many players had prior and existing contact) with Rich from time to time come out to play for him this Sunday against Dallas. I can't think of anything more Rich would like to see from up above is the Redskins beat Dallas this Sunday in his remembrance.
Rich I will start the Redskins defense in my Fantasy leagues for you this Sunday, I salute you Sir, the truest of true Redskins.. RIP
A fair and hardworking beat reporter for the Skins. He always took the time to answer my twitter questions. He will be missed by many as he already is. I pray that God give His Peace, Love and Grace to his family and a protection of Rich's special pets he loved and adored. RIP Rich! Redskin fans will never forget.

Recall meeting him first at a early/mid 2000’s Hogfest and have always enjoyed his writing or camp chats since that time. From the time he posted as a fan to his last article as a reporter he was one of my favorites.
Sad news indeed. Love and prayers to all who he touched; Rich will he missed.
A good memory I have of him is a story he posted of a Darrell Green press conference when his cassette recorder stopped mid-answer because it came to the end of the side. So Darrell stopped talking, took the cassette out and turned it over, hit record and resumed his answer. That was a cool moment for Rich early in his transition from a poster to professional.
I pray peace for his family during this difficult time.
I remember working with him. I wasn't 'a close friend' or anything, just a passer by. I did speak with him now and then and often on the boards. I am shocked to hear this news, I just heard it this morning. It doesn't matter if he was a close friend or not, its always sad news. Condolences to family and friends... While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him....

NBCSports Washington did a Rich Tandler tribute podcast. The first 20 minutes they had Rich's wife Andi on talking about Rich and telling stories. She mentioned that Rich enjoyed checking out headstones when he was at a cemetary, so she is going to do a fancy headstone for him and is going to include "Need to Know"...possibly "Final Need to Know". A very fitting tribute.

cooley47: Goff continues to stink. The D has done their job.

rskin72: The Lambs O just cannot get into sync. Limited rush attack, and Goff is not in any rhythm at all
Feb 3, 2019 20:47:23 GMT -5
rskin72: sooner or later the Lambs D will give...or they will make a big play. Either way the Lambs D right now has to win the game for the team
Feb 3, 2019 20:48:56 GMT -5
cooley47: No guarantee you ever get back to this game. Sorry but Goff can’t get it done. McVay should consider getting a veteran QB in offseason.

rskin72: Wow....238 vs 80 yards of offense....
Feb 3, 2019 20:52:17 GMT -5
cooley47: And yet only down 3!
Feb 3, 2019 20:53:16 GMT -5
rskin72: Gotta be something different that will break a big play. Maybe special teams...
Feb 3, 2019 20:56:07 GMT -5
rskin72: Going quicker now
Feb 3, 2019 20:58:49 GMT -5
rskin72: maybe getting some confidence

cooley47: I thought it was a late hit in Goff
Feb 3, 2019 21:31:22 GMT -5
cooley47: Steratore is a Pats guy so he thinks good call
Feb 3, 2019 21:31:48 GMT -5
cooley47: Horrible throw
Feb 3, 2019 21:41:52 GMT -5
kaiser: well he goffed that up!

SkinsTim: A first round pick for a guy that was terrible last year and his team is ready to move on from? No chance. They'll be luck to get a 2nd or a 3rd. I'd give up a 2nd for him and call it a day.
