I've been watching GB for what feels like a long time, but i musta missed this somehow. ThanksIn the early years of Giant Bomb, people would just say "Brad is leaving" in chat or a forum thread to troll people and get a reaction. Longer term users would immediately recognize this as a running joke. Brad was quieter then, so maybe newer people in the audience could be gullible enough to believe he wasn't in it as long term as the others? I don't have specifics beyond that if there if there is a particular stream it started onThere was a period during the early Bombcast where Brad would repeatedly leave before they were done recording. I believe Ryan literally says "Brad's leaving?" at one point. I can't say for sure, but I strongly suspect this is where the joke came from.
