My condolences to his loved ones.

Classy BG. Tyrone was a joy to watch and from what I’ve read an all-around great guy. RIP.


Terrible news, what a shame. He was such a hard-nosed and good player.

How sad. RIP Tyrone. My sympathies to his family and friends

A good man who will be missed.

Sad news indeed

Rip Tyrone

Whasn't he the Bombers all-time sack leader at one point in time. I seem to remember him as a pretty dominat player when he played.

Tyrone Jones was the leader of those dominate linebacking corp(he & James "Wild West" were all over the field)the Blue Bombers boasted in the 80's. Very sad to see him pass that way at such an early age.

When was the last time you went to a game and ranted about a defensive player on the other team ?? ( ok, Oshea, but for differnt reasons)

Tyrone Jones was a nemises (sp?) A player who you actaully hated . Hated beacuse he was a very good player who you knew would throw a monkey wrench into any game plan that we may of had . And when he did stuff a play, you knew he was gonna let you know that he did stuff the play .

I think that`s what I hated most about Jones playing at IWS , you knew that when he did stuff the play he was gonna dance and carry on and say " Gotta bring something better than that against me " !!!!

 I miss players like that and Tyrone, thank you very much for being the player that you were !!!

I have a fondness for db's,I was one in
RIP Tyrone

Sad news.

When I saw this, I was immediately reminded of the story about Jones trying to wrestle Bob Molle.

Lyle Bauer recounts it in the TSN story linked below:
