RIP Jim “Mad Dog” Mandich

The world has lost a truly great man.

Jim “Mad Dog” Mandich was a fixture in South Florida and a beloved member of the Miami Dolphins family. I had the privilege of meeting Jim on several occasions and he was always a joy to talk to. His passion for the game of football, and especially for the Dolphins, was undeniable.

Coach Shula had this to say about him: “I know he fought a courageous battle, but that was typical of his fighting spirit. When I think about Jim, I always looked at him as a guy who was bright, well prepared, and competitive. He was someone who I could count on as a player and was instrumental in the success we had during his time with the Dolphins.”

We, at DolfansNYC, would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Mandich family and to Jim’s friends and teammates who are mourning this loss.

To Mad Dog we say thank you….for being the ultimate Miami Dolphins athlete, broadcaster and most of all….fan. You will be truly missed.
