Totally shocked. Dave texted me a couple of hours ago. I had no idea.

I was just texting with Tony a few days ago about my son and sent him a video of my yorkie. He loved dogs, I mean really loved dogs. We also chatted a bit about politics a couple of days later. That's the last time we talked.

I will miss Tony. His draft blogs, doing the Phinfever Live show with him. This is right up there with Tom Eddie passing away.

The forum will never be the same.

I don't post a lot, but I enjoyed Tony's insight and always put more stock into his post's than others. I am also shocked and reminded of how fragile life really is.

I too rarely post but as someone who frequently checks in from the draft until the end of the season, it will definitely be different without phinsfansc's insight and blogs, mind boggling how things change in an instant.

Rest In Power

I don't even have the words right now. I hope everyone here knows what a good guy he was and how he treated everyone here with respect and courtesy.

I can't freaking believe this.

I am absolutely sickened to have read this news on FaceBook. Tony and I communicated often on FB messaging each other. I have been going through some tough personal issues in my life and Tony was very uplifting and positive to me and it was appreciated more than he will ever know. As a fellow Dolphins fan, he always provided classy insight vs. those who respectively come out with a negative approach, never Tony as he was always looking for the positive angle to share as that is who I believe he was as a person.

I agree with Rich in that this forum will not be the same without him and may he rest in peace. Although I have never met Tony in person, he was one I had wished I did meet and we even talked about going to a future game together. Rest in peace my friend and I know you will be looking down at your beloved family and favorite football team. Man, I am just saddened by this news......

I am deeply saddened by this news. Tony was always all class and positive, and as others have said this forum will have a hole that will be very tough to fill. For that matter, this world does too. So sad.

Here's the details of the accident that killed Tony. I imagine since his car is covered up in the video that his body must have still been in it.

Shocked and saddened. Thoughts and prayers to his family. I know the Phinfever family will not be the same.

This is just a cruel reminder how quickly life can change things. Hug the ones you love and be sure they know you love them.

Very sad news :boo: . Have always had a lot of respect for the time he put in for the site. He was always respectful; even when someone would get out of hand. He will be missed by many.

Does it piss anyone else off that these petty news sites have ads before videos like this?

I can express in words the depth of feelings that hit me when I read this. I can only say this, Tony was an amazing person and know that the many people that he touched with his positivity and encouragement were Blessed to have had him in their lives.

I'm sure that we will all miss him and I truly wish for peace for his family and friends.

He was the best of all of us. I always admired how he always took the high road on the boards.
He was always better at showing restraint than myself, and we used to joke about that when we PMed.
He had so much passion for this team.....and especially the future of the team and the building process.
I was blessed to meet a person who loved the NFL draft as much as I always did. I'll miss our discussions.
Rest easy my friend.

Ouch.. This really hits home. Tone was always thoughtful with his posts and his analysis. He loved the Dolphins and he loved Phinfever. I am grateful to have posted with him. So sad.. Unbelievable. Hug your loved ones.. Ugh.. Like a gut punch. RIP. Prayers and thoughts to your family.

What amazes me and right down to the bone, TRUTHFUL... You guys that never met him personally and only through the forum... Still hit the nail on the head. Tony was that genuine. (Tony loved to capitalize a serious word so I had to throw one in there). He loved this site folks.

I was fortunate enough to sit along side Tone and take in his knowledge. I was a rookie, but Tone immediately took me under his wing at the office. Being a Dolphin fan probably had something to do with it. But His personality was his strength. Optimism and Positivism are characteristics that get thrown around a lot, but this Dude carried them on his shoulders. However, Sometimes this irritated me. Like the night Miami traded up for Dion Jordan. I called Tony fairly quickly after the pick and said Dude, wtf was that. Long story short;Tony being Tony found light in the pick, so Dion... if there's anything about this Dolphin season that I want to see, that's You paying back the favor of a Tony Simmons endorsement.

I only worked with Tony for a short period and then I moved on to another company, now nearly 15 years ago. We stayed in touch mainly around March Madness and of course Dolphin News. We even got together and went to a game in Miami. Hot that day and an L on the board, but it was still a good time.

Brother, I never thought I would miss you this much. This one does hurt and fellow forum members, many of you that already called this out, this site will not be the same without Tony.

His love for animals, mainly dogs would take too much time to write about. So, I'll end on this note.... Walter Antonio Simmons was an Angel down here for animals and he's an Angel up there for us. R.I.P. - Tone
