the our get together in our visits in the history of love the story you told me years ago about going into the sound room and doing an audition and getting a job because you dread instant replay as the at that I'm proud of that I feel good about that I'm proud of that suit your that's why I knew that we were destined become friends but for those who do not know so quickly when I got my first big break in fact I was with tiki barber last week in Dallas and he said to me where did you get your break which gave first break and I said it was a radio station in San Diego but as part of my addition a producer pulled me in and said right now on the spot you will interview Jerry Kramer were calling him at his home do the interview go I Samantha good thing I read that book when I was a kid that was my favorite book it is a good thing so that's great I appreciate the remember that to cure the chiefs or in the Superbowl which brings back memories a Superbowl one when you face them what do you remember about the build up to the first Superbowl we you know we had one a couple three championships prior to that so this wasn't our first rodeo and we really for sure who they were Jimmy we hadn't seen anybody they'd played against that we knew so we had no idea exactly who the team was watching film on like Thursday night and what's the Kansas city play the last game of the game before and two other defensive backs run together and not themselves down and Max McGee or with is set in the back of the room to go play that again run that back run that back so I read it back anyway not not not not not not do the Looney Tunes amazing and widowed when coach some party thing about that well coach was in a room with no I probably would never happened at the time but we you know the first half was kind of a wake up call no we had Buck Buchanan no DJ hall of Johnny Robinson you know we had some wonderful football players out there and we found that out and got serious at halftime and took care of business the second half but they were much better team than we anticipated Jerry Kramer is joining us so Jerry what kind of money we looking at as a bonus for winning that first Superbowl I think the the story about my tickets hi into by and for tickets for some of my nephews they were ten Bucks a piece I crowded but I ordered for tickets from the Packers but they called me last week the Jerry we got four tickets for you there eighteen hundred dollars of youth eight thousand Bucks worth of forty Bucks right and I if the Packers head the bin in the bowl I'd I'd have bought the ticket that was but I'm not going to pay ten thousand fifteen thousand twenty thousand dollars the seek to team that I'm not that fond of for tells him once cost you ten Bucks the I. in my nephews didn't show up they didn't come to the game so I end up given the tickets to for kids who were at the front gate and they were playing the fiddle in or out you guys want to go to the game yeah so I gave the ticket booth for kids and they got to go to the game incredible tenth still ten thousand empty seats in in that first Super Bowl there was an amazement that the media took two buses instead of just one right there were two buses for the media can you imagine the no difference between this and that so what what do you think when you see the difference between this and that did you have any idea back then that fifty three fifty four games later the Superbowl would turn out to be what it is right now yeah may I with trying to buy a football team back in seventy two three four somewhere in there and I had a chance to buy the New Orleans Saints John mecum junior father within bankruptcy and he had to sell the team so I called for five of the Packer general managers and went to see them and they said what the game look like with the for the future look like what the X. economics and how do you what do you think the help and overall health the game and everybody I met said peeking saturation over exposure leveling all Tom Miller our guide in Green Bay said Jerry these tickets have gone from two dollars to five dollars just in the sixties alone I don't know how much more these people could stand so the saints were available for like fourteen million dollars at that time for ten million and we signed the deal we went up to Oklahoma City with a two million dollar check and John junior starts noble and Lawton and cry and carried on they couldn't find the deal he sold it about did about three months later but I was that close to be in a part owner in the New Orleans Saints while mazing Jerry Kramer joining us amazing that close so you know you and I talked in the past about what was like plan that offense of line you and fuzzy were so critical to that famous Packers sweep what was the jury about that play that was so unstoppable of John Madden head of the coaching clinic with coach from Barty and John said he was set up in the back of the room those seats and coach what is spent four hours talking about to sweep in any broke for lunch he came back he talked for more about the sweep hidden jobs that it moved himself down a little closer and figured out that maybe coach Lombardi knew a little bit more needed about football well but it it was a a a a a a a lady that had to have perfection from about seven or eight different spot the tight end who blocked the linebacker had to make sure he took the linebacker the onside cut off the center made had to be done the right tackle had to get the middle linebacker the outside back at the block the tide in or the defensive end and so everybody had to do their job and we practice that play instead of water running wind sprints at the end of the end of the practice we would run sweet and often times in the early days we get it wrong and Mr Lombardi what they run right so would light up rose again and after that first year when we would mess up we'd say run so we'd run it and read it and run it and run it yeah we we gained eight point three yards per carry anything that first three years we ran that play and a lot of it was Ron Kramer who loves Jim Ringo Orge Greg fuzzy and I got the get out of that mess and get outside on some of the smaller players at that time which was out by the way it was wonderful it was wonderful I I leave at three hundred and twenty pounds and go out on one eighty you a plus your time mama conceiving she knows what I'm doing out there in the middle he has no clue what's going on nobody does really well those guys are a big mess in there and out somebody block somebody we don't know exactly who so it was the it was a wonderful play fourth Jerry Kramer join me for a few more moments Jay last spring we heard the news that bart Starr passed away what was your reaction in what was part like as a person birth the bows with bows good as they get yeah I mean he was a quiet guy didn't blow his mouth off much and we didn't know who he was the first to refer to a three years I played with bart I have virtually no memory of it we had like four quarterbacks Lamar McKay and Joe Francis a couple other guys and bart and so he was up and down the ladder we're playing the Chicago Bears one day and bar has a tendency to pinpoint the path underneath and the the back for coming up so close wanting to throw deep I don't care what happened to throw the ball of fire didn't grow it so we have a play and you know the bears of always had great middle linebacker always a but got the single Terry the George the all of me and so bart threw the ball long down the right sideline my defensive tackle turned around and walked in the ball barge watching the ball centers watching the ball everybody's watching the ball that bill George or middle linebacker and bill is common build is run about five yards it hits a bar about with a forearm cuts is lit up into his nose and he said that I'd take care you star you with and so bart is bleeding just profusely down the front of his Jersey and I said bart you better going get sewed up the bleeding like a stuck because he said shut up and get in the huddle I said yes Sir yes Sir after not hearing anything at all from him for a year yeah so he takes us down the field bleeding bad of me or just the th profit run it down to Jersey eight nine players we score go to the sideline the plump him down on the bench put fourteen stitches in his upper lip and he felt alone funny for awhile with lip with really it law but he went back in the game he never missed the play and from that moment on there was any question about bart Starr's courage in his steel in his back in the kind of player who was but he was such a polite and decent and consistent human bearing is just a wonderful

"You have a favorite bart Starr story encounter. I don't have a single one because they basically all what's good same here you need for your go up you think there's no way he remembers he doesn't remember yeah he knows almost everything about yeah and he leaves you feeling better than you felt when you arrived in his presence and that's the way he treated every single person you could watch from afar where you can watch a close and you'll see that he treated every single person the exact same way with the utmost respect a true character I mean I I don't have nothing nice to say about. you know it's amazing John so you've got to know the Starz a little bit and yesterday a division game against a bitter rival the two teams a likely be battling it out at the end of the season for who wins the division and yet the moments that most people are talking about today involved what happened at halftime with the commissioner with mark Murphy with cherry star what was coursing through you as you saw that unfold there at halftime that beautiful ceremony. well just a whole lot of. the Packers have been blessed with such and and quite frankly one of the most important history in the in the NFL with the you know be and I'll I'll get in nineteen nineteen they're they're one of the only adult no Chicago Chicago until nineteen points of the Packers are the only team that first nineteen nineteen. and. throughout the course of the Packers who they they have some wild foods and some really incredible moments but that three P. from the last World Championship to the first two Superbowl whose book to people kind to the NFL because of the joining of the AFL NFL imports store really is is is a man that that took that time that possible war that helped popularize the sport nationally and. to make a point but he was the star himself because he was the first two super bowls and that popularity only grew as time went by and after he was finished playing it as he coached her which wasn't the the greatest years for the Green Bay Packers but still very much respected for the way he was at the man and and you just call the whole history and tradition of the Green Bay Packers in the stores kind of wine there and have time to go to all the people that he had an impact on even guys that he didn't play with but he left a lasting tradition with Brett Marvin and Aaron Rodgers so it was a truly special John Kuhn with this and W. T. M. J. H. alley got less than a minute left I want to ask you quickly those first plays are scripted what happens if down and distance don't measure up to the plate that's been scripted like the third one is that deep slant in its third in one how does that work out. well I mean you have your scripted in place and and those are basically your first and second dump if you plan on using you know for your first fifteen perfect template now your script will change you have your favorite yardage play you have your favorite third down play they're not necessarily written into the script local under those games situation well the thing with when you enter the ends and that screen is something that they were looking to set up early the the touchdown to Jamal Williams and maybe it's just that the second play of the game was it did you have to kind of set up that screen and set the misdirection so there there are scripted there's a reason they're scripting you kind of fault there early on he is Packer great John Kuhn love have any on the show John will talk to you next week thank you bye Packers insider sponsored by.

"So I just wanted to pick up the phone and, you know, obviously mooch don't know if you saw what he had to say on the NFL network over the weekend about Bart Starr. It was tremendous. It was typical mariuchi just just porn is hard out that he wears into sleeve for guy who he would watch through chain link fence when he would drive from the upper peninsula of Michigan to go watch part star practice with the Lombardi Packers and. I'm wondering what your recollections are of Bart Starr, just throw it open to you. Brett on. Oh. I don't know what else you can say that hasn't been said, by so many people. And, and obviously all those things are, you know, for men this personality character integrity. Nice thoughtful. And all those through, you know, he was a little before my time as far as watching him play in and remembering him like I do Roger stall back to was my child, childhood idol, and who I emulated. But, you know, I've said this so many times, you know, when I was traded to Green Bay, I wasn't real sure where Green Bay was. But I was for certain. I knew who Bart Starr was, I knew what he stood for. I knew that he quarterback Packers in what would they, you know, the as they say, now the gory years, and, and just was a an icon. I knew that I knew Paul morning. You know, I knew a new really would really Davis. I knew all those guys who they weren't in what they had done. And so when I got a chance to, to meet bar, and I don't think it was I in all honesty. I don't know the exact time. I can't remember if that was, you know, prior to the start of the first season somewhere, I, I don't remember, but I do remember bar would always out of his way to come say Hello. And, and I just thought to myself. I mean this crazy. Why would he wants to me? Yeah. And, you know, just a very humble guy. And, you know, one thing that he did, and you may have may or may not have seen this. But can you always let's send me a personal letter after I accomplished. You know, something not necessarily something of any magnitude. It may have been my first win. It may have been you know three game stretch or it may have been. You know, I didn't play as well and we tough loss. He'd send me a nice, you know, there'll be better days and thanking of you, you know, proud of you know all those things and. You have to do that. And, and I'm sure there there's other people out there, too. To say Barnes did this storm or he went out of his way and and and helped us out? You know, in some sort of way, that's just the type of guy was, you know, I guess, if there's any and I don't consider this a, a negative in, in any way, if there's one thing that you could say that maybe he didn't accomplish was what he set out to would have been at as a head coach writing and probably the reason for that was he's probably too nice. You know. And I mean, that was all due respect just just a wonderful, wonderful person. You know. And that's the thing I was a out of what you just said, breadth that I, I wanted to pull out about just a stellar human being that Bart. Starr was and how he, he would come up to you. When you were just fresh being traded to the team from Atlanta and then about how he would stay along with you. I mean as, as it was now obvious in Green Bay that you were in fact, the person that this organization had been writing for since barks. And I'm wondering how how he handled that with you with handwritten notes literally, you would just walk to the mailbox and there'd be a handwritten note from or on your locker from Bart star Brett. Yes, I do. I if not those and met he always made it a point when he was in Green Bay..

If he would please take us to the memorial service yesterday and sort of the field because in Bart star. We're talking about a man who was so held in such high regard, not only as a football player but really for the kind of man, he was off the field. What was that? What was the tone of that memorial service yesterday? There was a distinct tone, and I hadn't frankly hadn't thought about it until you said those words, but. The obvious cinnamon and heartfelt remarks, not just from the people that stood at the podium. But the people in general who came up before and afterwards to talk, the fact of bar, the a great person much more important than being a great football player. He is by actual record the greatest playoff quarterback of all time. His numbers are better than any other quarterbacks in the playoffs. And if you if you want to really be specific and looked at the final drives in those big games, that's when he was at his best. But nobody talked about that much mostly folks talked about his kindness is worn and his capacity to reach out to people when they were most in need, I should say when we were most in need. Coach. You've told many I heard you speak many times about how it was to be a rookie and a half players. Take you under under their wing as you're trying to learn this profession, how to survive in the profession of professional football and Bart Starr was one of those people as I recall, who took you under- his wing..

"But when he went into an started talking to. Employees. That's when I saw what was going on? With Bart Starr, usually with his wife, who always had a smile on her face always hundred percent of the time is wife cherry. They would just wanna walk through the offices and they really didn't want anyone to make a fuss over the didn't want to be led around. They just wanna walk, and they'd stop at the desk, and they'd see pictures and they talk about. Oh, that's your daughter. How old is she? What is she into? She liked dance. She liked gymnastics. What's her favorite pet? What's your favorite color, and these were sincere questions and they would follow up with handwritten notes everyone? I know in the office got a handwritten note from Bart star, including me. I got to any ended every Renault with the exact same line, which was thank you for all you do for the Green Bay Packers. It was cherished because what the Bart Starr. They're not they're not minimum around or not many of them left the truly truly cared about everyone, but themselves. Obviously, this was something that, you know, you see a person like that. And you think how are they like that? I used to watch him and I would watch the way people interacted with him. And more importantly, after seeing this few times, I would watch the person who interacted with Bart after Bart walked away and inevitably inevitably that person man or woman would have a smile on their face. They would kind of look around. They look down they'd smile. They go back to work, little more pep in their step. It was. I mean just thinking about it gets me a little choked up because he left a trail of appanage wherever he went Bart. Starr was that special where he took such a sincere interest? In people that had nothing to give him had no way to pay him back. There was no quid pro quo. He just had an interest in even in his darkest days as chronicle by Peter King in that moving tribute he did with Aaron Rodgers last year. Was you saw the bar, you know, trying to get the words out not about him not about anything else. But about Aaron he wanted to do it for Aaron. He wanted to everything for everyone else. It just it just impressed me so much. And, you know, close friend of mine shared something with me after this, and it was a letter that his father, my close friends father had sent had sent a letter to bar in nineteen seventy. Six basic criticizing BART's coaching, and discussed it with the play on the field, as you know, they weren't a good team under bar when he was a coach. So Bart writes back my friend, I put this on Twitter. I'll just read it, dear Mr. clump ner..

"Bet online at AG going to give you a rant about marijuana in the NFL, but then I'm going to get into Bart star. I think they're few people in media few people alive. And I don't say that brigade Asli that can sort of give you insights into Bart Starr, the great, great great man and football player the died this week as I can. I hopefully will be I'll share some memories of Bart from my time. And so many people have tweeted and, and left me notes that just something I'll share with you. So if I rant and this rant is about marijuana use. We see news over the past week that the NFL NFL PA have formed a committee to. Committees one to study mental health, which is obviously a great thing. I think depression and mental illness run rampant throughout society, and football is no stranger to that, too. Just like any part of society? You're gonna have mental illness issues with a population of football players, and I also say, coaches front office, executive staff, etc. And it's important that players and owners are studying that, you know, when I was in Green Bay, we had a mental health clinician that was kind of on call for the Packers. And she was around, but in retrospect, I wish that is sort of had her mandated to meet with every player every year in the players would have no choice because of that time. And maybe even now there's some stigma attached, so that didn't happen as often as we would like, but mental health, obviously priority in DC, stigmatization is underway, which is great everyone, including myself, who I see a therapist as well. A need to have that. I think it can only help. There's no stigma to it. Everyone needs someone to talk to kind of an independent voice about what's going on the other committee of courses for pain management. And I think the key with pain management is nowhere in this release as it mentioned marijuana. But of course that's going to be the focus in has been as we've heard of the past week from people like Chris long. And of course, we've heard over the years from people like you, gene Monroe cow. Turley Jake plumber many others on the benefits of cannabis as opposed to opioids that's gonna be a continuation of this study. We're gonna see what comes out of this study, the NFL's careful to say this is not about marijuana just about pain management will we'll see where it goes. Because pain management in cannabis use are going to be linked, and then we get into the whole issue of whether we're going to have an NFL tolerance for USA marijuana right now, we have discipline, intesting. Everyone has to know the. If they don't already this is collectively bargain. We mentioned the NFL and the NFL PA. They don't agree on much, probably don't agree on the color of the sky. But what they have agreed on in recent years. Average two thousand eleven agreement with the testing for one in the discipline. But would they have agreed on as a revision which raised the standard the nanograms from fifteen to thirty five which is getting rid of the second hand smoke issue? Although it's still under the threshold for baseball in for the W ADA, the world anti doping association in terms of nanna leaders, but it did raise the stakes on that. So they agree on that. But will they agree to just dump it? And our say the NFL owners if they're anything, they are relentless negotiators, so they're probably gonna want to extract a pound of flesh for giving up this issue, the NFL PA is going to say it's a health safety issue. It's a pain management issue. We shouldn't have to give up something. But again, it's good luck with that. So we'll see where marijuana. Testing going again, the pain management committee, never mentioned the word marijuana, but it'd be interesting to see where this goes that's going to be something to watch. I think marijuana, you know, now we have so many states, twenty two states where there really are, are some kind of lax restrictions on marijuana. I think things are going to change. But I think the NFL is gonna want something out of it. They already did get something out of the latest revision with some HGH testing now allowed in the NFL blood testing as opposed to none before. So this was a quid pro quo already, and who's to think that it wouldn't be the next time as well. So that's where we are with marijuana rant. There really comes down to. You know, we have state law will have federal at some point, but there's NFL law, NFL laws determined by the NFL in the NFL PA in this Magna Carta agreement called the collective bargaining agreement right now it has testing albeit only on window that starts on four twenty. Yeah. Good sense of humor. But it's in there and will it be out of there. We'll find out as we talk about collective bargaining going.

And I'll talk a little bit more about Bart later on, but. I think seventeenth round draft choice. He became one of the iconic quarterbacks in NFL history. His career at Alabama was not that distinguished played on a losing team lost his job because of injury. But went on to become the MVP, the first two Super Bowls, and surely one of the most respected people that I have ever encountered or anyone has ever encountered in our deepest condolences go out to cherry his. Wonderful wife and bar junior, who is. Who? Taking care of Bart in so many. Wonderful way, but we'll talk more about Bart as well.

"I just wanted to share a quick story about Bart star that every time I sort of ever find it of the story. It's one of those, I can't believe it kinda moment, so to sort of set the scene here, you know, I grew up in the as a kid in the late seventies early eighties and, and was just fascinated by the NFL films with Ed sable, and of course later, Steve sable, and you know that whole bit. So I sort of studied the game love the NFL loved it. I mean that was certainly my I love which transition into college football later but fast forward a little bit. And I went to university of southern Mississippi at the same time as Brett Farr. So had a great time there. Love my university fast-forward, again two thousand four 'cause I lived in Hattiesburg for quite a while after college two thousand four attending a fundraiser during the summer for a Christian ministry that was being held in Hattiesburg and. And you know, it's one of those auction kind of things, and as you're about to start the live auction pizza, this, I'm standing at a high top table, having some, you know, I don't know crackers and cheese, or whatever just kind of waiting on things to get started. And, and you know, sometimes you can kinda just feel somebody walk up behind you. So I looked to my left and rent for Indiana. Now looked to my right? And it's Bart Starr, and his wife, and I remember literally just practically pinched myself going. I really stand in between Bart star breath. Yeah. And I went to school with breads. So, you know, going in, we do each other in school. And we don't know each other now but you know that kind of just is what it is. But, but to harken back to those times of watching NFL films and listening to my grandfather tells stories about the ice bowl and art star. You know all those old games, and then upstanding, man, but to sort of push that a little forward. I mean he walks up and introduces himself to me, I'm like, who you are? You know, and just with so gracious so high, so, you know, honored key was honored to be there to try and help raise money for this crate organization. So part of the live auction was a store jersey. And if you win the auction he's going to sign it for you right there, while you hold it. Right. So this auction gets up to around five thousand dollars and I lean over to him and we're talking about little Hattiesburg Mississippi, right? Five thousand dollars Eileen over to Mr. sewing her started playing. Did you ever? Think you'd sell a jersey for doubt. He said I was hoping to five thousand dollars. So I mean it was just an incredible interact. When will, Well, you you know know. will? Let me let me, let me mirror, your story, the first time I ever interviewed Bart. He just he hadn't come back to town yet. But I and I this doesn't happen very often. But like you I mean, I literally couldn't couldn't get any words out, and he asked me during the break you, are you. Okay. I mean, I think he thought I was sick. I was just I was awestruck that, that, that's, that's what he meant. And I listen, I, I realized people move on and get older. And young people have no earthly idea what we're talking about here, but. Just have to remember this was an era of black and white television finally color came along around the time of the ice bowl, and it was just a different time. I'm not I don't necessarily want to go back to it. I'm not one of those guys. But when you go blink of an image like that, and it changes your perspective on everything it does. And if you're if you I didn't mean to labor on the story, but I wonder put a little perspective there. Because if you studied the game even you know, I wasn't quite old enough to watch play live..

And I'll talk a little bit more about Bart later on, but. Seventeenth round draft choice. He became one of the iconic quarterbacks in NFL history. His career in Alabama was not that distinguished played on a losing team lost his job because of injury. But went on to become the MVP of the first two Super Bowls.

Who taken care of Bart in so many. Wonderful ways, but we'll talk more about Bart as well. It's just been a very difficult time for the last couple of days in Alabama with barks passing and especially with the way it happened. I mean, Bart was eighty five and certainly not in good health.

Don't worry the guy did not miss that, we'll discuss that. We'll discuss that. But with the passing of Bart Starr, the really was only one guy could think of is you on the phone line. So he is. He is the pro football hall of Famer from the Green Bay Packers way back in the day. Obviously Vikings as well. But for the subject at hand, he's, he's perfect. And he's our friend and he's Brett farve. How are you? I'm good rich about you. I'm hanging in there have a fiftieth birthday party. It's coming up Brent. It is coming up, big five.

In some respects, I'm very old and others. I you know, maybe not so much. But I just. Whether you're in hall of fame or not doesn't. Doesn't make me any younger than you. I know I know. So I just wanted to pick up the phone and, you know, obviously mooch I don't know if you saw what he had to say on the NFL network over the weekend about Bart Starr. It was tremendous. It was typical mariuchi just just porn, his heart out that he wears into sleeve for guy who he would watch through chain link fence when he would drive from the upper peninsula of Michigan to go watch Bart star practice with the Lombardi Packers. And I'm wondering what your recollections are of Bart Starr, just throw it open to you? Brett on. Oh. I don't know what else you can say that hasn't been said, by so many people. And, and obviously all those things are, you know, tremendous personality character, integrity, nice thoughtful, and all those through, you know, he was a little before my time it stars watching him play in and remembering him like I do Roger stall back, who was my child, childhood idol, and who I emulated. But, you know, I've said this so many times, you know, when I was traded to Green Bay, I wasn't real sure we're green by was. But I was for certain. I knew who Bart Starr was, I knew what he stood for. I knew that he quarterback Packers in what would they, you know, the as they say, now the gore years and, and just say an icon, I knew that I knew Paul warning, you know, I knew a new really would really Davis. I knew all those guys who they weren't in what they had done. It's so when I got a chance to, to meet bar, and I don't think it was I. In all honesty..

"You don't appreciate the history of the game. Unfortunately, and I'm not sitting here Tony that I saw part star player didn't I'm not I'm not that old. But I appreciate the history of the game and far too often nowadays. And I think that fantasy sports is guilty of this and has a big reason why, you know, this is what the thinking is. But everything is just about numbers when you're not being generous enough to go back and really give enough due to the particular eras. And how a game was played, you know nowadays in the National Football League. You look at a guys numbers, especially a quarterback. And there's just now landed compared to even guys, the play ten fifteen years ago, much less I half a century ago because now it's a pass happy game. Now it's an offensive Centric game Bart Starr a hall of fame quarterback. You realize he never. Even through three hundred passes in a single season ever. Nowadays, you probably throw three hundred passes by week seven or eight. That's how much the game is changed. So don't look at touchdowns. Don't look at yards. Don't look at all those gaudy fantasy numbers, which right now, probably would is the single way you define a player's greatness, which is just silly. But he was the perfect contrast to Vince Lombardi head that even keeled demeanor Lombardi being the fiery guy. And he gained Vince Lombardi's trust gained his trust so much. So he'd let Bart Starr, call the plays. Let him call the plays in the huddle has been some bardy. We're talking about. Of course the ice bowl game sixty seven NFL championship game against the Dallas Cowboys the sneak there at the one yard line. Which, of course, brought the Packers the Super Bowl two they defeated the Oakland Raiders, and that will be the last game, the Vince Lombardi, whatever coach with the Green Bay Packers. And then the winning winning championships part was done for quite some time. Not a lot of people even remember. No. That Bart Starr. Then went onto coach the Green Bay Packers. For nine years, seventy five to eighty three didn't have certainly same amount of success as a head coach that he did as a player. Right. Only made the playoffs one time and that was during the strike shortened season in eighty two. But he's a legendary figure one of the great gentlemen, that we have in sports certainly the NFL. And then when you look at the tradition and the history of that franchise which goes without saying, but even just at the quarterback position when he go from Bart Starr to then Brett farve two, then Aaron Rodgers you know, the ladder, two guys have spoken about, you know, how much of an honor it was just to be in a guy like Bart Starr's presence. You know in to be part of that conversation to carry on that quarterback club of the Green Bay Packers. That's a pretty cool club to be a part of. And it's sad when we lose figures like that. But hopefully it allows you to gain a greater appreciation of those that came before those that did it so well. And those that may be unfortunately because you get far too caught up in the now. And in the present, you forget about what they accomplished. So rest in peace. Bart star one heck of a gentleman and certainly a quarterback. Eighty eight say ESPN eight eight seven to nine three seven seven six. Let's say to Stephen Los Angeles Steve, you're on the Stephen a Smith show here on ESPN radio..

This is after week, one of the NFL season entering a very, very interesting, New England, Jacksonville, Cleveland, New Orleans, Philly. The explosive bucks. There's a lot of interesting games, but I'm sorry, we're not gonna talk about any of that today. We are going to talk about the future of gambling in the NFL with my good friend, Chad millman who is the chief content officer of the action network where honestly, I don't really know what it is, but I am actually look it up when I leave here today. But Chad is going to explain everything that you need to know about the NFL's future with gambling. And also he's going to ridicule me, I think because I have no clue what all of these weird terms in gambling mean. And also we're going to be joined by Bart star junior of Birmingham, Alabama son, obviously, Bart Starr the first real Super Bowl hero in NFL history. The first two MVP's of Super Bowls in NFL history Bart Starr the Green Bay Packers. A couple of weeks ago I went down and spend a day with their family and met bar for story that I did for NBC's football night in America. Show this past Sunday, really hope you got to see it. It's about the relationship between Aaron Rodgers and Bart star, even though they're separated by fifty years stars eighty four star seniors. Eighty four, Aaron Rodgers, thirty four. They really have a lot in common and they have a very, very good relationship. So anyway, I'm gonna talk to Bart junior about that relationship. And what I'm going to do. The reason I did this and and and you have to pardon me because my recording equipment that I use, I basically use my iphone and so my recording equipment is not good because I didn't anticipate that I was going to record him for my podcast. So I I apologize in advance for a recording, sound quality. That isn't very good, but I really, really enjoyed the conversation with Bart Starr junior talking about growing up in Green Bay talking about having Bart star for a dad talking about his dad today, Bart Starr senior suffered a debilitating stroke of four years ago. He's got a disease called the Faiza which makes speaking and understanding and actually doing anything with the English language, a real chore. It's the disease that afflicts Paul Zimmerman my former comrade at sl. And Paul has a lot worse than bar does. But, but anyway, I just really loved the conversation that I had with Bart junior. And so I wanted you to hear that. And I hope I'm not boring you by giving you a gambling expert and the son of the greatest player in football fifty years ago. But I just wanted to do something a little bit different this week because I'm fascinated not only by the future of gambling in the NFL, but also I'm fascinated by Bart Starr's life and Bart Starr junior's life. So before we get too far into our podcast, let's go to our first conversation. Chad millman chief content officer of the action network, and he's going to talk about how cool it is that he has a job where he can talk about things like the Vig and the spread and the over under. Every day of his life. Back on the Peter King podcast. I'm happy to be joined today this week to tell me about things that I have absolutely no idea about. It's about gambling. I truly don't know because I think it's foolish to bet on the NFL. Because I just think it's impossible. But anyway, we have the chief content officer for the action network says, name's Chad millman. Chad is the former. Editor of ESPN the magazine. He did that for five years and he was the editorial director VP and digital for a couple years. And then he got hired to basically run the action network, which is a sort of a content place to learn everything you need to know about gambling and sports and sports betting.
