    Default RIP Deacon Jones

    While not audio related, he was a major fixture of the NFL in it's heyday.

    He was fierce. I was a big Rams fan back then and loved those guys. Wish he had gotten to Tarkenton and Brodie a few more times, esp '69. Wearing Deacon's throwback tonight. RIP

    He was one of my hero's back when I played little league football.

    I was a bit sad when I it heard this morning.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.

    I am a Rams fan going back to the Coliseum days. The news today also made me sad.
