"Over to the apology desk because we have a couple of those today bachelor host. Chris harrison kicked off his apology tour on good morning. America thursday morning this on the heels of the debate over a bachelorette contestant attending an old south antebellum style party in two thousand eighteen. I'm just going to play this for you. It's about ninety seconds. A chunk from his interview with michael strahan with a few words from rachel lindsay in the middle. She's the one who got into this Skirmish i guess with With chris harrison. And i'll just play for right now. I am committed to the progress. Not just for myself. Also for the franchise. My guess these girls got dressed up and went to a party and had a great time. They are eighteen years old now. Does it make it okay. I don't know rachel you tell me you said quote is it not a good look and twenty eighteen or that not a good look. Twenty twenty one. Because they're the big difference. So so what is the to you. What is the difference. There is not antebellum. Parties are not okay past present future. What that represents is unacceptable in that interview with lindsey harrison also using a term. He now says is acceptable. I am not the police. There's plenty of people who will do that for us in this world right now. Lindsay later discussing that controversial interview on her podcast. During that conversation he talked over me and ask me during that conversation has privileged was on display. He never came to talk and he never gave me room to share my perspective. He wasn't trying to hear it. He was discharged to be heard and shocked at how insensitive i was in that interview with rachel lindsay and i didn't speak from my heart and that is to say i stand against all forms of racism and i am deeply. Sorry i'm sorry to rachel lindsay and i'm sorry to the black community questions. Let the interviewee. We speak what do you think. This is the korean show. Yeah no shit. She's a fucking shit show. Qisas christ aright. Everyone have fucking fun out there. Enjoy your world. You're all crafting. This this move toward the light. He's scared he's get wished out into the cornfield apology. A stellar politician caliber apology. I mean i thought i would have thought. He was a politician with the eyebrow in the and i made a mistake and it was sincerely in this. And i'm not that the anna by the way. When you apologize to these ass wipes you just give them more momentum that they're just lining up their next fucking victim. She the thing. That's crazy about the bachelor. Is the bachelor. Ended up with the chick from the antebellum party really. Yes can't keep a good man so he chose her and she chose ham. Reliant not sure how racist you can be as a as a woman if you in fact are thinking about marrying a black man probably probably less than we used to think But she she and him. She became the winner. So i've heard i've not watched the show. I've just sort of fallen the story. So he picked her and she picked him and they went off together and then his initial statement was kinda. Hey man show her little grace She was young. And we all need to We all make mistakes or whatever it is. He then got coached up and then threw her under the bus later on an a later statement because the fucking woke mob got to him and basically said hey this woman you're in love with you can't ask for a little grace for her. You gotta toss her under the bus and then he went and his statement was one of the most asinine ridiculous soft ass pussy statements of ever heard a dude give. It was fucking scary chris. Leave chris max. Pat leave maddalone when he's regaling stories of the prom and jesus he's wearing the crown he keeps it in his fucking car right around after five says lecture buying the statement that the bachelor made. I'll i'll buy a little time. He had an initial statement. That sounded sort of normal. This is how you can tell. People are scared of the fucking woke police and how they're scared of being wished out into the cornfield. Because you know this thing where you go. I misspoke or misjudge. I made a mistake. Or i didn't know that useless. Your thoughts. that's your answer. You gave the fucking answer. This is basically like us calling someone fat and then later on explaining. You've never thought they were fat. Really said there were fat and which is a may hurt their feelings and you may be faulk now in the boss may have fired you but did you never think they were fat so he made a statement that was sort of normal. But the fucking woke police. They're not that's not good enough for them and it doesn't really matter what color you are in this equation at this point you're either the black. You're either the white person who's racist. Who's that who's the woman or your the white person who's making excuses for the races. That's chris the host or you're the black man that she's in love with. Who is now some kind of uncle tom. Because you're defending your fiance. Do we do. We have his statement. We have the statement from the executive producers of the bachelor I'm looking for his statement. Max pat so. That's his statement. He he he gave to. He gave like one at the end of january and then he gave his new wo- coached up scared. He's gonna be wished out of fucking cornfields version of this and the more statements. We give the more empowered these assholes get and the more of this. We're going to have. I'll let you continue Gina grad but chris'll fine those two statements. They're out there all right well. Let's move onto dr seuss because his stepdaughter is speaking out. In defense of the children's book author following the announcement that six of his titles will be do racially offensive imagery. Her name is lara grade diamond. Cates says she agrees with the decision of dr seuss enterprises to stop publishing the books but insists that her stepfather is not racist was not racist. This is what she said to so one book he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty. I think her statement. And there's a little twist at the end that's not going to surprise you. But she said there wasn't a racist bone in the man's body. He was acutely aware of the world around him and cared so much. I think in this day and age. It's a wise decision. I think this is a world right now. The world is in pain. And we've all got to be very gentle and thoughtful with our with each other but this will not be surprised to you. The sale of these titles have soared through the ru or have it never works. But i also was surprised to find out that he i think in his death or last year. Whatever i think was the second highest grossing dead celebrity essentially second. I think michael jackson could see that the. Yeah the the target the toy store. And the whatever is packed with dr seuss ship plus the grinch cutting out all right now. Max patas found a statement from chris harrison. Yeah i'm looking for the statement from the chris. The tissue that the bachelor the guy on talking about his yeah. Whatever it's clear. I can make this. The guy who is the bachelor gave a reason statement. See you and fucking matt talking about the back there. No one can do their job. The guy who is the bachelor the executive producer not to host the actual bachelor better up who voice. Yes find that statement all right..

"Now on hulu stars mel gibson and frank grillo and and we watched can jong will sasso. Oh friend of the show departure. Yeah so before. I think before the well now when the mike but certainly before you joined us gene ball brian who have seen the movie. I've only seen the trailer for where heaping praise on. It probably gave it the ultimate compliment. Which is i need to watch this with my fourteen year. Old son until it was. That's that's yoga. That was that's account. You need to watch with. Yeah i think when they tell you you need to watch this movie. It's good but when they go you need to watch it with this person. I think that's a higher compliment. That's that i'll take that as a high water mark you know. I mean it's been. It's been the movie's been around for a while. We made it two years ago because of the pandemic thanks. I'm just glad it actually got out. People could see it. Because i did not think that was going to take place. So the fact it's out anywhere and people are enjoying it as a great thing. I noticed that your credit as a co writer with all right Well chris christie. They come up with the story. I assume came in at some point. And the sasha and you talk about what what the story how form. Yeah it was. I i had worked with frank wrote a movie called the gray liam neeson and so this was a script that tony scott gut wrestle. He was originally producers on and it was kind of a sci-fi thing and i'm not released sci-fi guy so i got a hold of it and just started. I really wanted to work with frank and so rewrote with with of him in mind. And then you know Changed certain aspects. We kind of moved from this. You know This guy who's just get to the end. The analysts scatalogical part where he keeps getting decapitated. That was like the old movie. And i just thought it would just can't do the whole film. It's gonna have something. So i got the whole idea of the sun and and there and then we spent ten years trying to make it happen because you know you need to chase the same five people to make a movie and no one to make this film with franken the lead so that was a big stumbling block for the next question was how difficult and how determined you obviously very to have. Frank has the lead. Because he's not a big movie star. He's not original movie star but he's right he's perfect for the role. You might have gone about for them. I can't picture anyone else in that role right right well. He's also a maniac. I mean he's fifty five years old and he got down to like four percent body fat. And when i say ordinarily but his appearance so no it was one of those things where it listen to shot. Screen tests were than we. Did you know any number of kind of Things that you had to do to kind of you think entice people to want want to finance that version movie and just nobody was biting And you know and so we just had to stay the course. Chanqi backward asks way of financing the film where we had forty two days to shoot got cut to twenty seven days. Because they're basically people embezzling from the film. You know Though they'll go unnamed in this interview but yeah it was just a very by the way it came out great. I can't complain. I was certainly complaining a lot in moment but all work. I guess the good news is that you can reuse a lot of the same the guys at a time to show them getting attacked and whatever. No i mean. That way lends itself because once you've got this you know people to come to this kind of repetitive visual language. So once you've got that going you could get away with quite a bit and we got gotta with a lot But the fact we had that little bit of time to do it just we were. You know i was probably. We're probably drinking four bottles of wine a day. I mean we're out of our minds. You know drunk in the good old days seven where you drank and did drugs and it worked so we it was. Yeah it was. I'm glad because i use baseball. Analogy you know you like headwinds and see the seems that occur ball for twenty seven days. I had seems curb also It was. I'm glad i just never. I would never want to do it. It was not it was not fun. You got mel gibson in the film. And i'm trying to figure out we're talking about making getting stuff made it's a. It's a slog i've been through it a million times Is well. tv shows movies. Whatever it is and so much is about well. Obviously if you get tom cruise attached and then it's easy to american if you frank grillo. Maybe it's a slog but where's mel gibson factor into this getting. A movie made these days is it. It's not mel gibson of twenty years ago a little baggage but how much baggage i mean. How does it factor. In how i felt that i felt that would hear this kind of i'm on the side. Nothing but the utmost regards bodies of men shut. He's agrees with wonderful guy. he's a i think. Whatever time in the woods he had to spend a decade or so it's of a guy's been nothing but contrite and i think we either we either our society that actually we follow through this idea of forgiveness or fellowship and I found to be wonderful. And it's mel gibson. I mean he's he's one of the greats so he certainly helped us of I thought a measurably again. He's so good in the film and you know It didn't. I was going to do another movie with him. Called leo from toledo. Right after that so i had no i. I would work with elegant heartbeat and and again i think whatever whatever he's gone through i think he's. He's paid his penance. And like let's get on with already. You know there's a version. It's kind of interesting. I don't know mel gibson. So i don't know this but when when you were just talking about high school and proms and all that kind of stuff guys that were dixon and bullies and assholes in highschool oftentimes when you see him at the reunion. Twenty-five years later they're actually nicer than the people that were nice because there's a farthest yes they're like a person that got sober something you know. They're they're they're better than the person who drinks three glasses of wine and you know there's something there's some contrition or the repentant or something is that is that kind of the vibe from mel gibson. No was donald think mel was ever dick. I think that you know..

Director Joe Talbot on 'The Last Black Man in San Francisco'
"We're going to hear from the Director and Star of another brick shortlist her the last black man in San Francisco. This is directed by first time feature filmmaker maker Joe Talbot and it tells the story of Jimmy. A young man with dreams of reclaiming a large Victorian House in the heart of the city that he spent some time living in when he was a child. It's a home that his grandfather built. Jimmy's played by Jimmy fails in his first film role and fails was a childhood friend of Talbot's so this film story is very much fails story. He shares a writing credit with Talbot on the movie. The last black man in San Francisco debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Where Talbot won the Festival's best dramatic directing award along with a special creative collaboration award that he shared with fails? The movie played in limited release over the summer. And here's here's my conversation with Joe. Talbot Jimmy Fails so Jimmy. This is your story. You play a character with your name and the House and family elements Sir rooted in your actual experience and you guys were friends going back to your teenage years Is that right. I'm curious about how both of you on. This film approached the truth. And I don't mean so much you know what lines up with reality what events actually happened or not but how you each felt about taking your individual experiences this is and meshing those together and then translating them to the screen into something that is ultimately a fictionalized version of of Jimmy Story. Much sure I mean I think it's I think this story you know when it first the story that inspired everything. which is you know the story of the House of my family story? I think Once people reached out and We're we're telling us how much they related to that. I think that sort of helped the story get more and more developed Jimmy's referring into that as early on we knew you know this was going to be a hard thing to make a feature film. We've never done it before I'm a high school dropout. He's he's only ever start on my movies so we shot a concept trailer which was essentially him skating through the city telling the story of his grandfather. That had inspired the film Tom and so when we put it online not really expecting much are knowing what could happen. We started getting these emails from people who are saying These same things are happening in my city. And some of those people actually in the bay area and so we kinda banded together in what felt like the last group of artists in San Francisco and together. We developed it Over you know a few years And I think through that process. I mean everything that we've done that we've made including with my brother Nat. We made movies growing up. It always came from some true story. Sorry and then through our sort of conversations and our collective imagination grew into something else but we tried to keep the core of what was interesting about it to begin with what had made us want to make it even if characters change situations did. They often came from things that that we had seen. So I think that you know Jimmy says sometimes but I think it's true it's like we wanted to make it feel emotionally true. No matter how Dri Mike the worldwide the part that really resonated with me I grew up in a small town in Iowa and moved Chicago about sixteen years ago. But the part that really resonated with me was Jimmy's attachment. Your tach meant to the House that kind of sense of attornal ownership over this I think about the first house I lived in as a kid and lived in through junior high. I still romanticize it completely. If I'm back in town I drive by it every time I go there. If I had the means I'd I'd buy it. Just leave it sit empty like two times a year that I could go. Oh hang out and it'd be the worst summer home of all but it's something I would do if I absolutely could my dad I think about. He had a guitar when I was a kid and a motorcycle that now that he's this past if I could get my hands on those I of course I'd give anything to do that and I'm just I guess I'm kind of curious about that and and your relationship to that idea of of ownership over those things things and why we sort of as as humans. I guess just inherently romanticize objects and things like that. I think I've got a question for you if that's okay order. What is that house because you would want him back? What does it represent for you? Why would you want it back? Yeah I've thought about this a lot and a lot about in relation to this film and I think it is. It's more than just it being something from your past that you romanticize when you romanticize it because it's a time from your past when things were more stable able exactly we'll so yeah exactly the house represents for me represents family represents ownership. You know I've never owned anything to that. You know on their own a house. I'm twenty four so you know but I think that's what it represented and that's what that was my only tied to the city that made me felt like I belonged. I guess because it doesn't feel like I belong to that much anymore So he eh anything give. It's like everyone has some longing for something from their childhood. You know whether it's it's as big as a home and like Jimi cases place where your whole family was before they weren't anymore you know and you have memories of what that felt like or for us collectively like the city. You know there was a city that we grew up in and I think that was sort of one of the first things we talked about. As we became close friends was like what that city felt like. it's a hard thing to try and describe. Its amorphous sort of feeling of like sometimes you can distill instill it in like a certain interaction. You have walking down the street with someone that leaves you feeling a certain kind of warmth or a bakery that you we went to and the smells of that place You know collectively. I think those experiences are what make the San Francisco that we grew up and and as that city feels farther and farther away and that regional culture of you know all the things that Field San Francisco is You know the threat of being lost. I think it's it's part of where this movie came out of was as working through those feelings and also so almost wind to capture that city before it's totally gone. Yeah yeah and that feeling and that amorphous quality you talked about you definitely succeed in capturing and translating is leading to the screen. I maybe you just kind of answered it. But I'm curious about how you did manage to mix that sort of tone and that style style of of realism at time certainly but also surrealism and fantasy and whether or not. That's something that absolutely was crucial to telling this story. And The San Francisco story versus whatever next film. You guys might make together right. Is it going to be similar at all in style talking about hypothetical but is it something that would be similar or would it or or was it just the perfect tone and style for this think San Francisco Kinda feels real and surreal at times. We're products of that. So that's that's what comes through in our storytelling. I feel like you know Kinda was always. It wasn't something like we thought needed to feel like a dream but it just it does kind of feel that way at times because because the way that you you know you feel nostalgic for the place that you're from is kind of dreamlike it's like nostalgia is kind of like dreaming in a sense right. Yeah because you you know you always remember it in a certain way so I think that just you know. Did you speak star with Stewart showing. I don't know if joe was it. Was it more sort of where their actual the tactics that you took approaches to that to to make that To give that feeling is viewers or was it more kind of instinctual as Jimmy suggested I think some of it's instinctual. Is You doing it. You following your gut as to what had to capture the feeling of what Jimmy said. San Francisco feels like but but I think there are certain like nostalgia that is baked into San Francisco's history. You know that does feel specific to that place You read stories of Mark Twain. Like believe in the eighteen seventies going. Oh Gosh nothing like the eighteen sixties has gone to the dogs. This was such a fun town in the eighteen sixties. There's there's a line that similar in Vertigo where character sister Jimmy Stewart. San Francisco's not what it was and so there is this longing for time that it came before you or that you you know had maybe I arrived in San Francisco during As the city is changing and yet I also think there are very harsh realities that come with that change. It's not just a looking at the past with rose. Colored glasses were seeing in the very people that define San Francisco that people that fought for the people that have helped create the the city that we love being pushed out. And so it's I don't think that that changes Just a product of being human and and longing for the past and we're really seeing Are are fearing that. We're seeing the destruction of our city. And so you know there are certain ways you think about rendering that Certain light that you WANNA capture and colors Obviously people no one of the magical things about the city is its victorians and so. This film is based surrounded Victorian I think they kind of captured the imagination for people because they're almost palatial you know and they also every Victorian is different from the last they all have unique detailing that make them feel like individuals and I think that's something that we don't see in the newer architecture that's creeping in That feel as Jimmy sometimes has more like shelving they look shoving or boxes. Cardboard boxes So I think some of that's just inherent San

"I've got these guys who've been behind me and who've been with me, you know, for many years, and they're ready, they're ready to come off not even the bench, but they're ready to come off their, their roles and to now be a put into starring roles. And I thought it was. It's really not just an unselfish thing to say, but I think it's a realistic thing to say none of us live forever. None of us go on forever. And I thought that you were not only selfless in what you said, but also quite realistic. Trying to be sincere to the -portant thing with is the guys that, you know, that I work with every day here worked with. There's another ingredient that they have that will make them successful that is that they have a passion for the game. They have been here, a long time. These aren't rookies and the rookies left. You know, I need I didn't stay because have a passion to be here and to do what we do on a day-to-day basis, you have to love it, or you're not gonna succeed. So the fact that they've succeeded says to me that they love it, and they'll continue continue to carry the flame. And that's, that's a very good feeling for me because there's nothing more teachers are always most proud of their students, not what they accomplished not what the teachers accomplish. But what the teachers are with their students have. So that's, that's how I feel about these guys that are gonna, you know, you'll be calling them some day. Hopefully. Calling them next week. Next week. I want to replace it already. It's been a pleasure talking to you insert of debriefing you and I know we'll keep in touch, but all the best to you in retirement. Thank you very much.

"He said it was the best tribe. She ever saw. Wow. Joe one. One of thing I'm curious about. I've always thought that baseball has its baseball has its revered characters in history. Babe, Ruth, and Lou, Gehrig and tie Cobb. Maybe not revered. But at least extremely well known and football really is, never had the sort of reverence for history that particularly baseball has had maybe some other sports like boxing. So why is that? And what do you think will happen in this one hundred season of professional football to affect that? Well, here's way, I think it happens and we say it all the time football is the ultimate team sport. And as you know, if you're really a good teammate, then you're diverting. Attention and your cluding those that participate in making the team grade. So I think that the verts from some of the individuals stardom, if you will, that, that we have for some of the, you know, the grace of baseball, or boxing, or more indivi- individualistic, so I think that's part of the dilemma, plus we wear helmets and pro football see the guys and when I had mentioned earlier about, you know, how our selectors in the early days really only followed or so one or two teams or they one of their opponents on a regular basis baseball paid a lot more games. And so you saw a lot more teams and things like that. And, and frankly, was covered much more thoroughly by sports publications of the day. So that to me is why there aren't that many Connex stars of the game, I will then tell you that Johnny United's and Jim Rohn, you know, hushed the crowd in any. Room ever walked into, but they, they were the exceptions, you know, certainly Don Hudson. We're playing today he'd be much better known but still it would be talking about the quarterback. That's throwing the ball lineman were bucking for the quarterback because it is a team sport. Jorgen the spend a lot of fun. I appreciate it. Appreciate your friendship. And you're one of the great things about you, as a professional at your job is that you are. You're the, the definition of sort of a service, individual anytime. I would call anytime anyone of one hundred friends of mine who cover professional football would call you'd get back to him same day. And the encyclopedia would just sort of roll out of your mouth and anyway. I thought you had a really good. I was at your retirement dinner a month ago. And I thought you had a really interesting point to make, and I think it is absolutely totally true that, you know because John Madden had told me and he said to you the same thing. Hey, listen. You Joe Horgan can't retire. We can't replace them. We can't. I mean, there's nobody out there who has the institutional knowledge, Joe, you can't retire, which, obviously, John Madden said to you, and you said at your retirement dinner..

"Twitter's single out any one person you've seen it, even, you know, in the quote, Alex Karras as book, even big guys cry. You know, it was it is the case. And so often you see, but there were in typically the guys that are probably the most emotion at the emotional time are the ones that weeded longer typically senior candidate who gets elected and mean so much to them. But I've seen it a kind of reverse itself to where a player like gene Hickerson, who was elected to the hall of fame and was in the state of dementia at the time when his teammates, Jim Brown, LeRoy Kelly Bobby Mitchell, who gene Hickerson their lead blocker when they pushed him in there is wheelchair up to the podium to acknowledge the of the crowd gene suddenly looked up and saw. His son and acknowledged that he recognized. That was in emotional moment for me that, you know, there was, you know for the three guys that appreciate a jeans, you know work on the field for them. It was really emotional. So there there were great moments like that, that, you know, I look back unfortunately, I know Jean-Philippe reshaped, what was going on. But the see him, all of a sudden recognizes Saad that moment and those three guys that he blocked for, for so many years and made them hall of famers. That was really, really moving. You remember the old receiver for the eagles? Tommy mcdonald. How happy he was Tommy, Tommy was gosh. I was telling the story that two days ago, but Tommy was such an emotional guy. Where's emotions on the when we call them we used to call them live on a, you know, NFL network. And if they were in the Super Bowl city, we bring out of the set, and, you know, at the press conference he'd be there will wasn't in the Super Bowl, so we call him at his home. And we put him on speakerphone. And I thought I dialed a fax machine because it was a square with number. But that it was him crying. But then when he comes canton, you know, for his enshrinement ceremony, he's backstage with me, and, you know, this is get the front steps of the hall of fame walks. He's walking toward he's got this big grocery bag with something in it. And I said, Tommy oh, it's surprises. I don't like surprises. Don't surprise, please nonetheless, he goes out there with grocery bag and one of his term to step to the podium. He pulls out of his grocery bag, a big, boom box, and he puts it on the podium, a his play the BG's and staying alive to which he starts dancing to stage paying. I'm staying alive on, you know. And he says the crowd is no I've been said, I've got great hands. So he picks up his bronze bust, which weighs about thirty pounds. Throws it up and catches it does that twice.

He flies backwards lands on his rear end. So that was Comey McDonald's show, and then he comes back stage and says, what did you think Tommy, first time you through the bust? I said a prayer that you would catch. It second time I said a prayer that it landed on your hit. He understood humor, so it was okay, but yeah, he was he was. I would call him a character, but a loving character the guy had nothing but appreciation for the game. And he just loved it. They have fun. And Lamar hunt was sitting in the front row.

"You know, you see whether their personalities developed you think about Shula in the pulled around this kind of the same way that rain area. I was always prepared very similar Joe. What's your favorite era, in pro football history? You know, mind is, was the twenties because it was a call virgin territory when I started here at the hall really nothing that very seriously documented. So it was a lot of going back and recreating standing that the league I actually had them add teams to their to the rosters that they didn't even know where members of the National Football League. So, you know, that was, you know, just how meetings, give me an example of how you're able to do that. Take me into the fact finding how it happened. And you know there's a difference between team in a franchise. You know, a franchise the right to operate is basically certificate. And what I did is I was fortunate enough to get a full set of the NFL's meeting minutes, which, you know, had been looked at and studied and I went through each of, at the meetings, they would they would be summaries would be detailed meeting minutes, but they would list the attendees, and they would also stipulate you know, franchises applied for an entry into the into the NFL and has accepted. Well, then you would go out, and that would be your primary source you go back out and find the secondary support of that. And, you know, you go to find the usually small towns paper, which these teams came from and indeed, they were team or league members, the tunnel wanna car decks played one game in the National Football League. But we're granted a franchise. The league no idea they existed. They're, you know, others that they had Muncie. I believe it was that they the missed in nineteen twenty. So it was, you know, it was just going back and. Putting it together. And no. The Washington senators another team that existed the New York Giants before the New York Giants that we're familiar with. They were all granted franchises in played games in, in the NFL. But what was confusing? The first year that the NFL had a record book thanking thirty four. So the league around since nineteen twenty so they were going back and kind of painting things together. And, and if the team didn't finish the season, it looked as though they had never been a member. Where, where in fact, they were so it was just a matter of taking time, pre putting the pieces of the puzzle together, but it was always, you know, my favorite ever to look at, and it was such a romantic era, too. We're talking about the warring twenties red Grange coming into pro football and what, you know, dynamic shift that caused and the popularity of the sport and teams like, you know, the Chicago Bears George Halas it was the it was the most in my mind. The most romantic. I'll use that word again era pro football in the sense that they were young sportsmen owners who were trying to make a go of it some failed. Some Joe is you sit back now. And think back of all the people all the men have entered the pro football hall of fame. Who was say the most emotional, the most grateful the happiest when he got in the pro football hall of fame. Well, you know, there's so many people, it's so hard over Ford..

"But the Chicago Bears rarely went on the road back that they would stay at home in play their games home games because this small city teams could make more money, traveling to the large venue in Chicago than to have the bears come to them and play in their, you know, their twenty five hundred liters. So that was really what was going up back in those days looking at the schedule finding those teams that had similar similar circumstances. A one of the ways of doing it was Pottsville, which was in Pennsylvania's, well, pasta and Frankfurt teams would come in and play them back to back. Saturday Sunday and then go back home on a Sunday night and you know, pick up their, their schedule back home. So it wasn't unusual thing. Peter, it was just one of those ways the NFL up, they had traveling teams that didn't play at home at all the Duluth eskimos played rarely home the ring Indians in two years, played one home game and it really wasn't old game. They did have a home field. They played in the neighboring larour Hieaux. So it was just just the way it was it was. Do you, do you remember the, the little the little stories of 'bout about weapon about how they traveled and, and about how you told me this one story? They were playing in Staten Island on a Sunday. And they took a bus to the Staten Island ferry. They, they took the ferry across right? And pick up the story. Well, you know, and they would again, we think of, of stadium's locker rooms and everything was in uniform. Right. You know, travel uniform, and then when the ferry had to walk it was what we're you know, they didn't have travel Joe. I looked it up Joe. I looked it up and that field was approximately one mile from the Staten Island ferry. So imagine they got. On the Staten Island, the Green Bay Packers got on the Staten Island ferry in uniform, and when, when the ferry gut to the doc on Staten Island, they got off and they all walked one mile to the field. They played the game. And they walked back to the Staten Island ferry waited for it got the train back, our got the gut the ferry back, took a bus back to their hotel and the next day that was that, that was the last game of their three day road trip. The other part of it that you told me that was absolutely hilarious. Is that when they went and played in Frankford, they I think you told me this, or I might have read it, but they dressed in a firehouse in Frankfurt and, and then and went over to the field and played after dressing in a firehouse right near the field. We'll give you one bit of the Frankford yellow jackets. You know, we all know the Green Bay Packers or publicly team will. So with the Frankford yellow jackets, they were sponsored by the Frankfurt American Legion. They were nonprofit team, the revenues went right back into three different charities..

"Best you can be impartial. It's a difficult thing to do. It's easy to say but I just summary. I guess what? I'm trying to say is that today because of the evolution of technology and the game in the way they're linked together that the litmus test if you will is much. I'm with Joe Horrigan, the outgoing executive director of the pro football hall of fame worked at the hall for forty two years. Joe in nineteen ninety two I believe it was, I was still pretty much greenhorn at Sports Illustrated. And I was asked in one off season early on in my career there will if I would like to basically take my off season to write a pro football history, book that Sports Illustrated with then us as a in those days, it was called a subscription premium sign up to get sl for two years. And you get this pro football history book. So we're going to do all the research and writing one year, and then the following year it was going to be out. So I said, man, I would love to do it and you're paying me to go sit in the archives in. Canton. Ohio for six days, soak up every bit of knowledge that, that I can, and it was almost like taking a masters class in pro football history in part because you were the professor, you were the one who basically showed me, okay? Look, you wanna know what happened with, you know, the founding of professional football in nineteen. Twenty here's all the documents we have on it. Here's some old stories about it from the canton, repository in nineteen twenty here's it, you know, blah, blah, blah. And you would you'd just basically shepherded me all the way through, and I remember going back home and telling people at Sports Illustrated. I said, I, I mean you know, there's a lot of research material there. But what was really amazing was really how much Joe Horrigan knows that either. It. Wasn't written down anywhere. But and if it was I couldn't find it. But, but I said, this guy's amazing. He knows more about professional football than anybody, and so- Joe, I really want you just cert- approve this. I feel like you know, I'm. You know, I'm, I'm sort of put you on the spot a little bit here. But you told me a story back then about a road trip that the Green Bay Packers took I believe in nineteen thirty late in the season in which they played the New York Giants, the Frankford yellow jackets. The precursor to the Philadelphia Eagles. Frankford was a, a little town outside of Philadelphia. And also, they played a team on Staten Island and you told me about this road trip of a professional sports team. And I simply couldn't believe it, so I'm gonna give you the floor. And I'm gonna I'm gonna tell you to tell America about the Green Bay Packers road trip late in the nineteen thirty season. You know what's great about that is it was very typical of what was going on in mostly more in the in the twenties, but a little later, because Frank for was playing in Pennsylvania which had blue laws, which meant they didn't play football pro football on Sundays. So they would play on Saturdays. So you had a team like the Packers and again, they were even small market in the day era of the small bark and NFL that would travel and they could pick up a game in Frankfurt on a Saturday and then move on and hit New York for a game or two in the case of Staten Island jump jump across and play a game with the giants re really came down to getting that Saturday game followed by a Sunday game followed by the next week again maybe a Saturday game against another blue laws team or Sunday game. So that's, that's really what was going on. And it wasn't uncommon and you even had traveling. Versus the Chicago Bears. This is a getting off track a little bit..

"But that's not what this is about right here. I wanted to just reminisce just a little bit about my three years with these alternate great professionals at cadence thirteen. In fact, Chris Corcoran, who has been my boss. Cadence asked me to come over when I was still at Sports Illustrated, and Chris was the ultimate professional. He's a guy who knows the podcast business, so well at the time I was doing my podcast at Sports Illustrated for another company, and Chris came in and convinced me. And convince the people at Sports Illustrated that they were the ones to handle my podcast and everything that he said every single thing that he said he would do he did. And over the last three years, he and my producer for these shows Bob tablet, or. Have essentially taught me the podcast business. You know, Chris and Bob gave me some equipment. So when I would travel on the road at training camp, and I've done several games sort of live games that we turned into podcasts when, when they when we would do that. I never in my life traveled with, you know, a couple of microphones and my my tape recorder before. But they taught me how to do that. They taught me how to make everybody sound right in the middle of locker room how to hold the microphone close so you don't get a lot of you don't get a lot of lousy noise in there. But more than that, they basically taught me how to do a professional podcast. And I'm really, really grateful to them. I want to just tell a couple of stories about. What fun this is been working for cadence? And what fun it's Ben to really learn the podcast business over the last three years. So tell you one story Bob tablet, or my producer over the last three years. And I kind of got this idea, wouldn't it be fun to do some live games to actually go to games and figure out how to do a podcast at a game you interview, some people afterwards. And you know, I would do maybe six or eight interviews. I would do a couple of here. I am at Lincoln financial field. Remember we did a Monday night game with Washington and Philadelphia and afterwards all the median Philadelphia's looking at me because I'm over in the corner and I've got Carson Wentz and then I've got Doug Peterson. This is in the middle of their, their Super Bowl run. But I've got these guys alone. And so what was so interesting about doing these podcasts is basically, I would then transmit these interviews to Bob, tablet or, and I would essentially it would be that was a Monday night game. It would be may be to forty five AM in the press box at Lincoln financial field, I would have transmitted the interviews and I would go and find some very quiet spot where I'm not a bothering all the writers who are writing on deadline. Probably wasn't to forty five probably one forty five, and so I remember I did all of my sort of my bridges and my writing I sat down and wrote stuff, and I did it all in a stairwell at Lincoln financial field because I was conscious about really not disturbing the guys on deadline. I didn't want to be one of those radio guys who sat in a press box and said here we are Lincoln financial field and we've the eagles have just beaten. Washington, because that, that disturbs, everybody trying to write their stories. So I mean this is amazing. I probably would finish transmitting all of my stuff to Bob maybe at three fifteen. I would get in my car, and I drive back to my home in New York. And I'd go to sleep. I'd be exhausted. It'd be about five thirty and I would get up and I'd have about ten or fifteen comments on Twitter. Hey, love your podcast. Listen to it on the way to work. I mean think about that. I got this stuff to Bob, and it'll buy I don't know four or five o'clock, and he invented a podcast, so those were those are fun days. And I think what I really liked about that is that I am convinced that what we have to do in our business is, we have to give people information and interviews and stories where they can receive..

"And so I couldn't wait for Jerry to get elected of getting tired of this literally came in bales of mail campaign cars where they'd also, and I would actually get some sp- misspell Kramer so I always discount you don't even know who the guy is. We're going to say, but you, you know, it's part of passage in the state of Wisconsin Senator of the whole famous, Joe, you're an idiot and I don't vote. But in any case, he was excited as I was, but his his excitement was really, it's refreshing because I know you know, forty five years is a long time to wait. And I'm sure any admitted. He says a couple of times. He just thought it wasn't going to happen. Move on life goes on any set of let it roll off the back, you know, and and he said, but he never really met it. I mean, he, he probably did harbor some really, you know, hard feelings because you know many of his teammates in the hall, and they kept telling him he should be in when it finally happened, and he assist this is true, and I've heard it probably from every single senior candidate who then gets elected. It was worth the wait. And once you're in the hall of fame and Jerry Kramer comes to the hall of fame next year, and he goes to the rain niche luncheon, which is just the hall of famers getting together. They're not going in the room and sitting at tables. This table is for guys who were elected forty five years after forty, five years of their career, or this guy was elected in the first round that doesn't matter to them anymore. They're all embracing, they're all recognizing each other as the elite of the elite. This isn't the whole very good. This is the hall of fame, and if you get on that list as nominee for goodness sake, that means you have done better than ninety nine percent of the players in the league before you. So you know, I think he fully understands it in the understands it better now that he's in, it always helps. But that's, that's the reaction he had all weekend. He still smiling, I know is I thought it was so cool when David Baker knocked on his door and he saw him and Jerry was just the look on his face. It almost just made you cry as looking at the look on his facings blissful. One of the happiest moments of his life. And I think a lot of times sometimes I think about sometimes I think about the fact that there really isn't much of a reward and I believe me I'm not playing the violin there really isn't that much of a reward for being on this committee because most of the time you only hear what an idiot you are, but it moments like that. When I see that even though I was one of the guys over the years that for a long time, I didn't vote for Kramer and I voted for him this year, but but I do think that that seeing the joy when people actually get in is just it's some of the happiest things I remember covering pro football, seeing the joy on the faces, seeing Randy moss tear coming down his face and realizing that. I mean he's one of the best three hundred eighteen people in. History of the biggest sport in the history of America. That's a that is the reward that I get every year. And that's what reinvigorates me for the next year is that you, you're looking at the guy without a helmet and shoulder pads. He's not doesn't have his game face on. He's not nervous. He's nervous about his election, certainly, but not nervous game bef-, you know, pre game nerve. He's humanized and in their humanization they become humble, appreciative and over joy. You know, they're just they're, they're, they're the example of how you would want somebody to feel everyday for the rest of their life. And that just that is rewarding and you, you mentioned Randy moss. I, you know, I had never met Randy moss prior to being nominated, and if I were to believe everything I had heard about Randy moss, you know, I, I would not let him on the grounds, you know, and he couldn't have been more delightful..

"If I'd say it's never brought up before it is it's just the nature of a selection process of any kind, whether it's a political elected officials or whatever. But the pros and cons would be this. The reason that I like keeping more senior selectors on is they have a broader breath of the of understanding the game and how it is changed in how you cannot compare players from the fifties of players of the two, two, thousands and expect to really have apples to apples. So there's a real good need for young and old so that the game is, you know, we're looking at it from the perspective in the eyes of selectors and you know, from our last meeting, we had one of our younger selectors speak up in a meeting and he said it from his perspective as a younger person, and it was enlightening because it, you know here I am longhaired longhaired long in the tooth grey-haired the it's not long much hair, but even for me, I thought that was really important to hear that. So it's good to have younger, but I also wanna make sure that I have the pulse Zimmerman's of the world who have experienced the game for so long that they have institutional knowledge of the game, the people, the players and the process. So there is a balance of both. So I don't want to eliminate somebody because he's been a good selector for ten years and say, thank you for being a good selected. I gotta go find someone that's not nearly as good as you. Why would I want to do that? We have the, you know, you know, we have a a bylaws provision that should a member of the media or selectors. No longer be a member of the media is a two year window that we can don't even necessarily have to use as an extension. But most cases we use it to find that in that two year period, a suitable replacement, or if that selector comes back to work and goes back to work in the media, it starts again, tell me finally, over the years. I've probably heard this more than any single thing when they when people ask, why doesn't the hall do ex white isn't the hall have a voting panel that includes, let's say, all players in all people formerly were in the league instead of the vast majority of it being members of the media. Yeah, we'll right now. All of our members of the pan over the committee are members of the media, including we do have two hall of famers now that are on the selection committee, but they are also members of the media Kenny law or James, Dan Fouts. So. There. There's the perfect marriage of two very, very knowledgeable players who are hall of fame players who obviously are still working in the media as very valuable members of the media. So they fit the definition but to your question. Yeah. The changing dynamics of the world of media has giving us cause to pause and look and say, you know, it's not as it used to be in a said to someone last night. We're having dinner that it used to be every NFL city had at least two newspapers in new had one guy was a pro this, and the other guy was a pro that you had good balance of doubt, ailing news, but sports. Well, the that world has changed. The people can cover any game from anywhere at any time, you know. So it's not necessarily that the guy has to be geographical. So that's a consideration, you know, all right..

"There's far more players participating and have participated in the league. Then what you would call your administrative owners, general managers scouts officials, whatever it might be. There are far more players. So what we wanted to make sure that whatever we decide in terms of going forward that we are keeping that playing field level and at the same time, making sure that the right candidates are moving forward in terms of the nomination process, but then also making sure that we're not selecting nominees to fill the requirement of having x. number rather were finding making sure that we're putting the right candidates into the into the room for discussion, so that will always be the, you know, the the thing that's foremost in our minds. Now, the process that we have right now, I think has been working it. It may continue this way or it may be reviewed and looked at and tweet. I don't really have the answer for that just yet. But rest assured we are looking at it as we do every year. But this commitment we had for five years for what we have. Now we we didn't have to look at because we did commit to try this for five years. Now it's been five years will look at it again and evaluate. See if it's working, Seve needs tweaking, see if it needs total revamping Joe. In our time remaining, I'll give you the four quick issues that always seem to come up. When we talk about the hall of fame, one of which is a is a more recent one, and that is with terra low in this year, not attending the ceremonies at the hall. There was some discussion afterwards and some news reports afterwards that the hall might consider going to a wanting to get a commitment from players and who any nominees that they would attend the ceremony. Obviously, if they're alive, it'd be hard to attend if they were dead, but. How does that stand? Was there ever anything to that? Yeah, you know, in this kind of one of those things where there was a lot of discussion as everybody knows when Teo decided not to come to the hall of fame. And as we said from the beginning while we didn't agree with his decision, we respected his right to make that decision. That said, a lot of the hall of famers in particular were particularly were upset and some of the hall of famers. We have three hall of famers at our on our board of trustees, and in the course of our board of trustees meetings came in towards the tail end of that meeting as they were leaving the rain itchy meeting to jump into the board meeting.

"Welcome to the Peter King podcast where I talked to a lot of people around the sports, particularly in football, but not exclusively, but it's the football time of year. So football were going to talk this week. I'm gonna give you my memories. My ten best things that I saw. Traveling around the United States going to see twenty two teams over thirty six days in training camps around the United States. So we're going to do the podcast a little bit differently this week. I'm gonna do two segments myself because I thought of what I would want to do this week. And I just thought I've done so much on this training camp trip been home for a couple of days now, but I've done so much on this training camp trip. I've seen so much. I've learned so much and an awful lot of that. I haven't written in my football morning in America column at NBC sports dot com. I've just got it in the old cranium. So I just thought, here's the way we're going to do this podcast can be different than anyone I've ever done before. I'm going to do to Saguenay maybe twelve minutes a piece and in the middle of that, sandwiched by my two Saguenay is going to be a segment. I'm gonna do with Joe Horrigan the pro football hall of fame executive director and archivist, and in my opinion, after the death of Steve sable the real keeper of the flame in professional football, you just simply don't know him. So we had a meeting last week, the pro football hall of fame that I'll tell you about, and then I'm going to have a conversation with Joe Horrigan, but sandwiching that will be some thoughts. I, I'll have a section about quarterback thoughts as I went around training camps. And then I will have a section later in the podcast, all about all other thoughts, five other specific thoughts I had going around from camp to camp. Around the United States. So we're going to start off first with a few of my thoughts about quarterbacks. And you know, I'm gonna start in Baltimore. That was the first stop on the training camp trip, Owings mills, Maryland, where obviously, Joe flacco who won the Super Bowl five years ago for the for the Baltimore Colts and got handsomely rewarded twenty million dollars a year contract, and he just has not played well the last two or three years last two years because of injury. But obviously the Baltimore, Ravens drafted a quarterback in Lamar Jackson and in the first round. And they aim at some point to give the reins of this team to Lamar Jackson. And I found Joe flacco what I went to ravens camp. He's the same old joke kind of laconic and not really seemingly upset by much, but somebody who's. Been around the ravens for a long time, says Joe wants to stick it up their rear end, you know, Joe wants to show the ravens that there was no need for you to draft a quarterback, and I'm going to show you why the day I saw him. He threw six balls over forty yards, four completions, and I said to myself my gosh, this looks like the flacco who went in beat Denver in the wildcard game. I think two thousand twelve throw in the ball all over the place and outdueling Peyton Manning. So look, I don't know what's going to happen in Baltimore. I can't swear that flock is going to have a great year. But all I know is I think he is soup rim Lee motivated by the ravens, drafting a quarterback. He's healthy for the first time after two training camps being hurt. And I think Joe flacco has got a very good chance to have a redeeming year quarterbacking the Baltimore Ravens. Now. Let's go to Carson Wentz and Philadelphia. The third stop on my trip was in Philadelphia to see the first day that Carson Wentz had pads on since the day in December two thousand seventeen. When he hurt his knee, suffered a season, ending knee injury against the Rams and and that was on December nine. I think two thousand seventeen. So here we were ill basically eight and a half months later. And this was the first time he was going to put pads on and play at full speed with pads on since the day..
