Felt it only right that I should post this... Being the Scott Brothers most ardent supporter in these parts...

Sad times...

R.I.P

He may not have been the greatest, but he gave me some of the guilty pleasures such as ... ah. Many. I am very sad.

Very sad news. I've always thought that Tony deserved more accolades and respect. I'm happy that we got to making a TCFTN episode before he passed. My thoughts go to Ridley and the rest of their family.

It's now reported that he had brain cancer.

I'm not going to stray the topic but I think it needs to be said. I've seen first hand what diseases that destroy the brain do. I fully understand wanting to end the body while there is still a mind inside it to make the decision. There is no "hanging on" in these cases.

The family has since denied the cancer rumors.
