NFL Films President Steve Sabol, half of the father-son team that revolutionized sports broadcasting and mythologized pro football into the country's favorite sport, died Tuesday from brain cancer. He was 69.

In March 2011, Sabol was diagnosed with a tumor on the left side of his brain after being hospitalized for a seizure.

He started working with his father, Ed - NFL Films' founder - in 1964, and they introduced a series of innovations now taken for granted today, from slow-motion replays to sticking microphones on coaches and players.

Sabol was a legend in his time. I hope he has a fast journey to eternal peace!

Sad to hear it, NFL films was 'cutting edge' and I loved watching them.

RIP.

His work will live on forever and is one of the biggest reasons we all love pro football. My condolences to Steve's family.
