"Coaches that are on the teams that are having the most success that that's counterintuitive, So it would be far more beneficial to the coaches who, like Todd Bulls, like Eric, the enemy, like others who were with teams that are going the furthest if you put the hiring process off until after the Super Bowl, and by the way It's also better for the team whose coaches are being interviewed while the teams are being you know, prepping for the playoffs so early in the playoffs, there is a window where teams can interview assistance on teams in the playoffs. And if you are preparing for an interview You're not focusing entirely on the job you have. So I'm with you. Let's the league should absolutely say no interviews for head coach until after the Super Bowl, and by the way, the league is always looking for content, and they want to be a year round league in the everyone's attention, so make a window for coaching interviews. Push back the combine, pushed back the draft pushed back free agency and why Allah you have more content. Hello, Amy. How are you? I'm well, how are you? Good. I watched the 30 for 30. I don't know if you had a chance to watch it. Are we talking to the real image, rascal? Are you computer generated as well? Trust me. The last thing anyone and by that anyone, I mean, specifically, my family and friends, For the most part is an extra Amy track actually once was watching a special on television. And it was about, um Employee to me where you know a man could have more than one wife and I looked at my husband. I said, just think you could have 10 of me and the blood drained from the NA E did not that you didn't just think we're going to discuss polygamy on you know what's crazy again. E did not watch the special and you know that's not a A commentary on ESPN or anything. Any such thing. I did not watch the special because I just it would make me heartsick. It's been almost 30 years working with Al and I want to remember him in my mind's eye and I want to remember him in my heart. I don't want to watch a special on him. Specifically one in which he's computer generated in special on him. I really want to remember him in my heart, not through someone else's eyes and by the way I don't think he'd be happy with the whole computer generated al thing, but that's not sure what? I'm not gonna watch it because I want to remember him in my heart. Okay, Let me ask you this thing because you might know the answer to this because this was one of the things in the dock that it didn't fully explain. And I we've asked a couple people. And I still haven't got an explanation. It's I don't know if anybody knows, But if anybody, would it be you back before he was trying to move. I was trying to move to l. A hey wanted upgrades to the Oakland Coliseum. And Commissioner Rozelle Leveraged the city, Minnesota. The officials, city officials in Minnesota, Tonto help the Vikings get the Hubert H. Humphrey Dome. Built and he wanted the same treatment to leverage the city of Oakland so he could get some upgrades because he kind of know where the league was going sky boxes, all that kind of stuff, but he needed upgrades in Oakland. And according documentary he didn't get any of that. So the officials and Oakland is it will cool. We'll just keep the same least keep doing. We're doing and keep moving. And that was kind of when the whole engine started. Hey, we need We didn't look for different avenues. And the question is, Do you know why he would help the The owner of Minnesota leverage that city for upgrades to the Vikings facility and not the city of Oakland so out to get the upgrades he wanted for the Coliseum. The answer is I don't know that firsthand. I'm old man. I'm not that I wasn't. I figured it was a shot. Amy. I wasn't with the team. One out, chose to move it from Oakland to Los Angeles. I joined the team when it was already in Los Angeles. So, um, I don't know any of that on a firsthand basis. I do know what I was told when I did join the organization, and this was shared with me not only by people within the Raiders, including Al Shared with me by others in the league at other teams, which is, you know it was relationship based. Pete went out of his way to help the Minnesota team and didn't either didn't feel a need to do that, For our or affirmatively didn't want to do that for out. But as I said, I not only heard that from Alan others within the radar organization, I heard that from others around the league. So there's certainly something to that. But I don't know it on a firsthand basis because I'm going to say it again. I'm not that old. I wasn't with the team know, maybe your computer generated self was back there, You know, maybe maybe Trask nice enough to join us here in the Tolbert, Kruger and Brooke show Amy is a great follow on Twitter simply Amy Trask. So let's let's bring it back around T O coaching, and his Larry mentioned, you know, kind of tangentially. Getting some or coaches of color in the mix and how they would benefit specifically Todd Bowles. Maybe when Byron Leftwich from you know, holding off hiring coaches until the season is over one of our mutual favorites, Tom Floors. Going into the hall of Fame and you know, it means you mentioned you. You choose to remember Al Davis issue as you knew him, and he was a person that cared about his players, and he cared about A people of color within a fuse football team within the league scouting players and drafting players from historically black colleges and universities and obviously bringing on coach floors, says the first Latino coach. And now that guy is going to the Hall of Famer we had coach on last week and per usual coaches just you know, even keel nonplussed about the whole thing, but he's finally getting ah, He's finally getting that recognition that he so he so deserves. You're right. And I'm smiling as you're saying everything because Coach floors is one of the most even killed people I know and it's just a great expression. You used to describe him and the first time and he just he is Even killed to, you know, just perfect word right? And perfect word or two words. Yeah, I guess two words and I remember the first time I remember the first time I saw him get really, really, really animated during a game. We're up in the press box, and I thought Ah ha! I've seen it. It happens. He's just gotten so fired up when something happened in a game on Daz to what you said about how I will scream this for the from the rooftops as long as I can screen it. He is someone who hired without regard to race, gender or other any other individuality, which has no bearing whatsoever on whether one can do a job. And he did that decades and decades and decades before this was even a topic, which was discussed within the NFL, and within a lot of places in society, he and I'll share this chronologically, not in order of importance, because if it was in order of importance, I'd be at the bottom. Like chronologically. He hired Tom, as you just said he hired me. He hired art shell or advanced our show. I should say to head coach he didn't give a damn about any of these individuality is race, gender, ethnicity or anything else, which he knew had no bearing on whether one could do a job..

"A committee living the dream lad to count down from the way so it is How you boys doing everything Great. So good. Did you get it before going to the Super Bowl? Did you get a chance to see the 30 for 30 last night? Yes, I did. I had a couple of days before it. Okay. We actually had a preview. And then afterwards, we had a round table discussion with some of the former Raider players and coaches like Tom floors, and that And we told great stories about al Davis and living through that period. So yeah, we did. Did you get to enjoy? I did. I was so I was so happy. Fine that they didn't turn you into the computer generated brought Mussburger. So you were the real Brooklyn burger. That was nice. I was very happy about that. I'll tell you what the computer generated Rose, Ellen Davis. Was a little funky. Hello? That was outside real shadows. That was a look. Okay, go ahead. I was gonna say Yeah, it struck me. You know, I was taken aback, Probably because I knew him so well, I will say one thing about who ever played the role of Rose. L had the voice down Perfect. High pitched. I mean that I could close my eyes without looking At him. And I could think of was Roselle talking. I will tell you that, So yeah, it was. It was a little strange, but they want to build it around that the ghosts of them back in the legion. I had no idea that's what they were going to do. I've had. You're not the first person to get to me today about that say that Mm mm. So a couple questions I have about it, and I'm wondering your take on it. It was pretty obvious, and and this isn't new ground that they're plowing in the 30 for 30, but it's always been thought that Al Davis was Not for the league, but he was for the Raiders like he was going to do what was in the best interest of the Raiders. And if it happened to be in the best interest of the league, that's great. But he was gonna do something he was gonna put the league. Head of the Raiders. Do you think that is accurate? That he was Maura about the Raiders than he was about the NFL? And if so, did that already put it kind of a target on his back? Yeah. You know, listen now was always about winning. But I think the point is made what he was saying. Turned out to be completely accurate. In other words, Franchises had to generate More revenue. Because salaries were about this sore, a television ratings. We're going up across the country and to compete. You know how it was not a rich man on Benny of the franchises. Have been still are owned by very rich people who can Dip into another fund toe, help them get through. You know whatever problems they might incur and l needed better revenue sources. And I think that's That's what led him to Southern California and, of course, You know, the Rams had deserted. One point in there because I've lived in Southern California in Los Angeles, and it is so true. Anna Hyman and Los Angeles maybe 32 miles apart, but they're more like 3000 miles apart in An attitude and lifestyle everything so when the Rams abandoned Los Angeles It was open. I think, timeto as to your question. It seemed like a selfish move to the league at the time because he was defined the orders from the owner's committee and commissioner Rozelle. But hindsight being 2020 they look back on it, and they see Some things that have really occurred after that, For example. Baltimore, bolting for Indianapolis and then the Browns, leaving Cleveland. One huge mistake that the league made during that was not leaving the Colts nickname behind in Baltimore, as they did with the Browns. Alright, think that's helped him get over the The mountaintop. There was some footage in there that I either hadn't seen. Or didn't remember. I'll give you An anecdote about being between not listen. The hatred was real. It was intense on both sides, and, uh, Was asked by the league prior to the ceremony after the 83 season 84 Super Bowl last woman Raiders won when they beat Washington. But I think that that al might in their words, I think something like backed up. We got the trophy and say something nasty and I said, No, I don't think so. I said, you'll be if he wins, he said. Be professional. Well, I'm up there between them, and Commissioner Rozelle starts out and immediately starts praising this great Washington Redskin team and I'm taking paid. What do you do it? You know if you look at Al in the bed, he looks away from the great Don't even look at it. He's looking around the room like what is this? We just beat these guys. We just that screen pass the Heisman started forward at the end of the half. I mean, we took that in for a picture anyway, when he gave it to him, Uh, Pete quickly moves off. You don't see this, but it was the quickest exit. I ever saw by a commissioner after presenting the trophy and of course, Al. Everybody's seen him with a great great smile, turning for the players and just win baby and we went on from there. So it was. It was interesting for me to review That era, But there was intense dislike between those two and then and then what? Pete resigns that the owners meeting In the spring. You know, it was interesting that Al Davis was one of the first owners to get up and hug him. And, you know, trying to let bygones be bygones. But the wounds were deep between the two. I'll tell you that. So let me ask you this because this is what I don't know. They had a good answer in the in the documentary Or maybe I missed it..
