"Boat. Matt in 96 doesn't ship. At EA loses millions of dollars in development money, but they learn a valuable lesson game they made him go back to the drawing board, look at the technology, they had probably gotten a little lazy, reason the same engine. But that's the transition going to a new platform. You don't know what to expect. You don't know what you're going to be doing. And we really just didn't know what we were doing at the time. The missing year. That was a leap year, I think. That was a pretty brutal time for the man franchise, and I know some guys lost their jobs over that one. EA comes through the following year and releases Madden 97. They finally get the chance to go head to head with Sony on the PlayStation platform. Took a year to regroup, had tiburon do the code and do the game and the game was great. Increased competition, a missed year for the Madden franchise, and now they would go head to head on the PlayStation franchise. That year, Madden took over NFL game day and won out. The following year, though, game day was the preferred franchise by fans, and over the years there would be more competition, not just from NFL game day, but later Sega introduced a competitive title with NFL two K but really it's been maddened that over the years has really become the dominant franchise. Yeah, ranker dot com lists the top 11 football based video games available on PS4 today and of the 11 9 of them are just different iterations of Madden NFL football. And what's given it, it's staying power? Well, let's hear from the late John Madden himself. John Madden talked about how the game franchise evolved year after year in this segment from USA Today back in 2010 over a decade ago. So the game changes every year. So we have to change and adapt every year, which is a great thing about it because if the game stayed the same with the same players doing the same things, year after year, then you wouldn't need a new game every year. But you have to have to keep up with the game with all these people changing and we have to change with it. So in essence, we have a new or different game every year. You want to start where it's easy to start where anyone can play it, but no one can ever perfect. And that's always been our goal. Again, those comments were from over a decade ago, but they still ring true today. Let's take one more quick break and hear from our sponsors, but we'll be right back.

You feeling me. I'm feeling you. Looks like the NFL has its game on. Do you Madden NFL 2003? It was in the game. A sport. It's in the game. Ready to eat for everyone. That was an ad for Madden 2003. One of the many additions that was featured over the last 30 plus years ever since it first came out initially for the Apple two. Legendary football coach and broadcaster John Madden recently passed away. And this Madden NFL franchise is one of the many legacies that he leaves. People think of him as a Hall of Fame coach, a broadcaster, and a person, right? But you don't often hear about them talking about him as a product person. But honestly, it's essentially what he was. Yeah, you could certainly say that he was a product manager for EA before that was probably even a title they gave to anybody there. No, he didn't spend all of his time acting as de facto p.m. for the Madden franchise. But he was always speaking up to the realism of football that needed to be baked into the game. You called him a de facto product manager. And that's basically what he was, but did you know he was almost also the owner, owner of well, Electronic Arts actually, at least a part owner. After the release of the 1988 Apple two first edition Electronic Arts CEO trip Hawkins reportedly offered John Matt and the chance to buy into the company, he offered Madden the opportunity to buy as many shares as he wanted, in fact. And Madden didn't take him up on that. He did not. Of course, he was still compensated for his work, but according to ESPN, he told Hawkins, hell, I'm just a football coach. Madden said he pointed with his finger all knowing and said, I gave you my time. I'm not giving you my money. And so he didn't. Ten years later, EA stock has written ten X what it was in 1988 and Madden, unfortunately he didn't benefit. Of course, it's not as if Madden didn't benefit at all. That initial deal he signed with EA back in 1988. It was reportedly worth millions of dollars, which, back in 1988, that was a lot of money. I mean, heck even. Now millions of dollars a $1 million, right? And even more recently, it's reported that Madden made about 14 million each year from his work and the use of his name and likeness. All told, he's made about a 150 million from his work with EA, which is more than his Hall of Fame coaching and broadcasting career ever brought him combined. In more recent years, there's some criticism of the Madden franchise that each new addition only brings about incremental improvements and roster updates, no wholesale changes. But let's face it, it's almost so real now that I mean, what could you possibly dramatically improve? I don't know, maybe take it into the metaverse. Oh boy, here we go. Hey, there might be something to that anyway though. Regardless, Madden is still one of the best. If not the best sports franchise of all time, selling hundreds of millions of copies and adding billions of dollars in revenue. You have to wonder if John Madden ever thought it would be so successful, honestly. If he ever envisioned that he'd see his name and like this on so many different editions, playable on so many devices by honestly so many people. Sadly, we can't ask him today, but we can go back to the USA Today's segment and get his take back then on whether he envisioned all of that. Anyone that said that they did is a liar. Because no one knew what we were going to have these things. I mean, you know, you look at all the technology today when we started this thing over 20, 30 years ago. None of this stuff was there. So to say that, you know, I knew that someday we'd be on telephones. I didn't know everyone was gonna have a telephone. So I mean, the answer is that we just kind of grew with the technology that we were the first game and we developed as a computer game and then once these hardwares, different hardware started to come in, we had to software that we could adjust and adapt. Adjust and adapt, they did. And we have

"Really know him mostly perhaps totally as the face of the iconic NFL video game franchise, John Madden football. What do you make of how someone is old school is Madden became this sort of video game entrepreneur? Well, he was an entrepreneur at heart, and I think what makes the game great and Madden's contribution to it was he was a stickler for details. He could have had a video game sort of become just off the shelf. But every single year he wanted to do improves the game and he would bring software developers from EA to his home in California and literally go over how to improve the game. Now he didn't understand the software necessarily, but he would try and get them to make the game more realistic. So for instance, the offensive line, well, they don't score any points in these video games. But he wanted them to move just like offensive linemen do in real games. It didn't necessarily enhance the game other than aesthetics and make it more realistic. And he software engineers who didn't necessarily know football had to translate his vision for the game into X's and O's. And that really was the hallmark of it. It's precision. And it's realism. It's precision, it's realism. And it's all because John Madden was a product person. Think about it. As product people, John Madden did exactly what we do. He communicated what was important to the team of developers. He articulated the why. Those offensive linemen, they needed to move like offensive linemen because they were offensive life. That's how football worked. So that's how this football video game needed to work. Did he know how they'd be able to develop that? No, no, of course not. And let's face it oftentimes we don't necessarily know how the development team is going to develop what they're going to develop in any product. No, I mean, hey, hopefully we can all speak the same language, but even still, even not being able to talk deep tech with the team, it was important to John Madden that he communicated these small details, so at least they could understand the intricacies of football and they could get the game right. And many people actually point to that realism is a big differentiator that helped the game stand out even today. More on the evolution of the Madden NFL franchise after a short break. This episode is brought to you by Felix gray, Felix gray makes glasses that work as hard as you do. Now, Mike, I know that you've got your Felix grays on right now. Yeah, yeah, and I love them.

Before the break we learned about legendary football coach and broadcaster John Madden, how he not only lent his name to one of the most prolific sports video game franchises ever, but how he actually became a bit of a product person in the process, sharing his knowledge and insights with the developers of the Electronic Arts studios, the company that most gamers associate with. EA Sports. It's in the game. That classic catch phrase. Anyway, Madden was a stickler for realism, which was pretty hard in the inaugural 1988 Apple two version of the game. But even still, things like the number of players on the field, the playbook that players got to choose from, all of that really mattered to him. And then just two years later, in 1990, big improvements were made. This time as a console game, specifically for the Sega genesis. Here's a segment from G four. In 19 90, Madden releases his first console game for the Sega genesis. And fans couldn't be happier. Even though it was in its barest, most infantile form, that still got everything that carry on and made the series great today. I mean, they came up with their interface, the way they handled passing, play calling, everything. I mean, you can look back on that basic game and it's all there. Over the course of the next decade or so, the Madden franchise improved by leaps and bounds. The gameplay became more realistic. There were even more features for players. But there was also more competition. It's not as if VA sports had an exclusive NFL license for the video game market. There were other NFL based video games, and when the introduction of the Sony PlayStation came to market, it meant that EA Sports had to step it up and create an even better game for an even more high-tech console. One that actually had some built in competition. Let's go back to that G four segment and dig in a bit more. In 1995, Sony computer entertainment introduces the PlayStation. A brand new console, eager to capitalize on this new hardware, EA goes to work. The developer visual concepts is hired to create the game, but the design team at EA is unhappy. Group out in California was working on it not tiburon. And it went on forever. Meanwhile, Sony begins work on their own football game. NFL game day. And here's Kelly flock former CEO of Sony entertainment in that same segment. EA Sports was very vulnerable to new platform because they hadn't made the commitment to PlayStation that we had for us. It was a PlayStation must win or we're all out of work. It was very simple. And for EA, a lot of people believe Sega Saturn was more likely to be a successful platform. Well, they were wrong. Game day gives Madden a run for its money. It offers a new look with new technology. That's exactly what gamers are looking for. Our first game day was a Sprite based really 3D environments with overweight characters as was mad. So we had the market to ourselves that first year and that really allowed us to establish a sports brand for us. You had to stay with, stay with the technology curve. Game day surpassed them, especially in the 3D stuff, Madden got caught with an old engine, tried to catch up and

"Tell the good people some more about it. Well, I think the good people should definitely tune in every week because they get to hear me roasting you. All right, no, really, what gadget lab is is Mike and I tackling the biggest questions in the world of technology. I like to think of it as the best of wired journalism, but in audio form. We cover the big news of the week in tech land, but we also offer our expert analyses and opinions on all things consumer tech. Whether that's mobile apps, hardware, startups, cryptocurrency. Mike, what's been a recent highlight episode for you? We did a deep dive on the group behind the massive octa hack. We also had a great conversation about web three and the metaverse. What stands out for you? Never met a verse you didn't like. I really enjoyed our recent podcast about peloton. And recently, the legendary tech journalist Kara Swisher joined us to talk all about Elon Musk in the future of Twitter. So I guess we should tell people how they can listen to our pod. We release a new episode of gadget lab every week, and you can listen and follow us on Apple podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you pod. If you're like me, this little 16 bit tune brings back some memories. Do you remember this one, Michael? Of course, this game was a classic. In fact, the franchise still lives on today. Yeah, we're talking about Madden football. A video game franchise that really was in the making since 1984 if you could believe that. Before console gaming was really even popularized. I mean, I think Nintendo wasn't even out in the United States back then, but it was in the dining car of an Amtrak train traveling from Denver, Colorado to Oakland, California in 1984, well, you could say that was when the Madden video game franchise was born. And today, we're going to bring you an episode on the incredible product journey of Madden NFL football. In part to honor the recent passing of American football legendary coach and broadcaster, and in a way, product person, John Madden, in this very special bonus episode of rocket ship FM. Welcome to rocket ship FM, rocket ship FM is produced in partnership with product collective. We are your hosts, Michael sokka, and I'm like belsito. John Madden was larger than life. And we could tell you who he was, but it's probably better if someone else did. Yeah, how about award winning sportscaster Joe buck in this episode of a football life back from 2017? Here's Joe buck. Okay, so there's this guy. And he's a big guy. He was an ex offensive lineman. Then he became a head coach in the NFL for the Oakland Raiders. He wore a lot of bad 70s clothes, and he was the head coach of this team. He was just a itchy in the mouth, crazy football team. And then he gets out and then the next thing you know, he's in these beer commercials and he's busting through walls and he becomes a broadcaster and he says boom and whap that he's drawn on a telestrator and he gets really loud and he gets really fast. That's the old body slam. You know like they do in wrestling. He rides around in a bus. He doesn't like being in a plane across the country going from town to town game to game city to city. People can get close enough to him, but he's kind of alone or he's a guy that likes his privacy, but on Sunday he will light up your television screen with words that aren't even words. Right there, that's a wham block. That's John Madden, and he's dearly missed in the game today. He's dearly missed in the game, and with his recent passing, he's dearly missed in this world already, but his legacy will definitely live on. It'll live on for so many reasons and so many different ways, but we're going to dig into one of the legacies that he leaves behind. Madden NFL football. The video game franchise. And this isn't just any video game franchise. It's one of the most successful sports game franchises of all time. According to the New York Post, the Madden games have equated to more than 4 billion in sales and have appeared on more than 30 different platforms. The kids just starting to play Madden today on platforms like PS4, PS5, Xbox, even on iPhone and Android devices, it's actually possible that their parents or even grandparents played Madden NFL football when they were about their age, which is kind of wild to think about. That is really wild, but what made Madden such a great coach and broadcaster translated very well to influencing video games. Here's one of Madden's broadcasting partners Al Michaels. As he talks about this a bit in a recent segment on NBC sports. But he was an artist in making the complicated simple. Making a complex game accessible, understandable, educational, and usually entertaining. Just cover up 18. The same can be said for his iconic video game. When the software people approach John about putting his name on their idea. And if the defense didn't just say yes, he dove in and over the years worked with him to make sure that game was as close to the real deal as possible. This is what the game of football is all about. The people could truly learn the game he loved as they played. To Madden, simply collecting a check for the rights to slap his name on the video game. That wasn't good enough. The game had to be more than that. It had to be realistic. It had to be instructive. But it almost didn't happen. Mike, remember that Amtrak ride I mentioned earlier. Yeah, that's where you said the NFL video game franchise was actually born, right? Yeah, that's true. But it's also on that very same train ride where similar to Madden's playing career, the video game franchise was almost over before it even started. On that ride, it was trip Hawkins, the founder of Electronic Arts game studio or EA, who pitched the idea of John Madden becoming the face of the new football video game EA was planning to release in the coming months. But because EA was producing games for computers that were rudimentary compared to today's standards, not like the PlayStations and xboxes were used to trip floated the idea of the game being 7 on 7, not 11 on 11, which how football is played on every Sunday. Yeah, and was there an issue with that? A big one, right? Madden just looked at him and said, but that's not football. Well, that is true. We see 22 players on the field every week, not 14. That's right. And trip Hawkins and his Electronic Arts studio, if they were going to make the video game as realistic as John Madden wanted to in order to lend his name to it, it's going to take a little bit more time. In fact, it was going to take a lot more time. Of course, they must have agreed, right? Because we all know the incredible rise of the Madden NFL franchise now. Yes, they ultimately did, of course, they actually may have felt like they had to. John Madden wasn't EA's first choice to be the face of their upcoming video game. They actually wanted legendary quarterback Joe Montana, but he already got a contract with Atari. Then they approached Cal football coach Joe Capp, but cap on a perpetual royalties and he actually turned EA down. So wait a minute. We might have been talking today about the cap NFL video game franchise. Maybe so, right? But of course, history didn't play out that way. And in 1988, they released the very first Madden NFL game for the Apple two computer actually. Obviously, the 1988 iteration looked a lot different from the ultra realistic, almost cinematic version that we see today. But it gave people what they wanted, which really didn't exist. And that was a more realistic version of an NFL based football game. And that realism, even if it was 1988 realism, it made a very big difference to John Madden. This game, it had to be real. I mean, the offensive lineman that had to move like offensive lineman, talking about this aspect of the game is NFL writer Ken belson on this NBC News segment. It's interesting looking back, there are just these distinctive chapters to his career. There was the coaching era then the broadcasting era, but there's a generation of fans who

"The code and do the game and the game was great. Increased competition, a missed year for the mad franchise, and now they would go head to head on the PlayStation franchise.

And what's given it its staying power? Well, let's hear from the late John Madden himself. John mannan talked about how the game franchise evolved year after year in this segment from USA Today back in 2010 over a decade ago. So the game changes every year. So we have to change and adapt every year, which is a great thing about it because if the game stayed the same, with the same players doing the same things, year after year, then you wouldn't need a new game every year. But you have to have to keep up with the game with all these people changing and we have to change with it. So, in essence, we have a new or different game every year. You want to start where it's easy to start, where anyone can play it, but no one can ever perfect. And that's always been our goal.

And Madden didn't take him up on that. He did not. Of course, he was still compensated for his work, but according to ESPN, he told Hawkins, hell, I'm just a football coach. Ben said he pointed with his finger all knowing and said, I gave you my time. I'm not giving you my money. And so he didn't ten years later, EA stock has written ten X what it was in 1988. And Madden, unfortunately, he didn't benefit. Of course, it's not as if Madden didn't benefit at all. That initial deal he signed with EA back in 1988, it was reportedly worth millions of dollars, which back in 1988, that was a lot of money. I mean, heck, even now millions of dollars a $1 million. And even more recently, it's reported that Madden made about 14 million each year from his work and the use of his name and likeness.

Hey, there might be something to that. Anyway, though, regardless, Madden is still one of the best, if not the best sports franchise of all time, selling hundreds of millions of copies and adding billions of dollars in revenue. You have to wonder if John Madden ever thought it would be so successful honestly. If you ever envision that he'd see his name in likeness on so many different editions, playable on so many devices by honestly so many people. Sadly, we can't ask him today, but we can go back to the USA Today segment and get his take back then on whether he envisioned all of that. Anyone that said that they did is a liar because no one knew we were going to have these things. You look at all the technology today, when we started this thing over 2030 years ago, none of this stuff was there. So to say that, you know, I knew that someday we'd be on telephones. Heck, I didn't know everyone was going to have a telephone. So the answer is we just kind of grew at the technology. We were the first game and we developed as a computer game. And then once these hardwares, different hardware started to come in, we had the software that we could adjust and adapt. Adjust and adapt, they did. And we have John Madden to thank for all of.

Before the break we learned about legendary football coach in broadcaster, John Madden, how he not only lent his name to one of the most prolific sports video game franchises ever, but how he actually became a bit of a product person in the process, sharing his knowledge and insights with the developers of the electronic art studios. The company that most gamers associate with. EA sport. It's in the game. That classic catch phrase. Anyway, Madden was a stickler for realism, which was pretty hard in the inaugural 1988 Apple two version of the game. But even still, things like the number of players on the field, the playbook that players got to choose from, all of that really mattered to him. And then just two years later, in 1990, big improvements were made. This time as a console game, specifically for the Sega genesis. Here's a segment from G four. In 1990, Madden releases his first console game for the Sega genesis. And fans couldn't be happier. Even though it was in its barest most infantile form, it's still got everything that cause carry on and made the series great today. I mean, they came up with their interface, the way they handled passing, play calling everything. I mean, you can look back on that basic game and it's all there. Over the course of the next decade or so, the Madden franchise improved by leaps and bounds. The gameplay became more realistic. There were even more features for players. But there was also more competition. It's not as if VA sports had an exclusive NFL license for the video game market. There were other NFL based video games. And when the introduction of the Sony PlayStation came to market, it meant that EA Sports had to step it up and create an even better game for an even more high-tech console. One that actually had some built in competition. Let's go back to that G four segment and dig in a bit more. In 1995, Sony computer entertainment introduces the PlayStation, a brand new console, eager to capitalize on this new hardware, EA goes to work. The developer visual concepts is hired to create the game, but the design team at EA is unhappy. Group out in California was working on it not Tehran. And it went on forever. Meanwhile, Sony begins work on their own football game. NFL game day. And here's Kelly flock former CEO of Sony entertainment in that same segment. EA Sports was very vulnerable in a new platform because they hadn't made a commitment to PlayStation that we had for us. It was PlayStation must win and we're all out of work. It was very simple. And for EA, a lot of people believe Sega Saturn was more likely to be a successful platform. Well, they were wrong. Game day gives Madden a run for its money. It offers a new look with new technology. That's exactly what gamers are looking for. Our first game day was a Sprite based really 3D environment so it would overlay tight characters as it was maddening. So we had the market to ourselves that first year. And that really allowed us to establish a sports brand for us. You had to stay with stay with the technology curve. Game day surpassed them, especially in the 3D stuff, Madden, got caught with an old engine, tried to catch up and miss the boat. Madden 96 doesn't ship, and EA loses millions of dollars in development money, but they learn a valuable lesson game they made him go back to the drawing board, look at the technology they had probably gotten a little lazy reason the same engine. But that's the transition going to a new platform. You don't know what to expect. You don't know what you're going to be doing. And we really just didn't know what we're doing at the time. The missing year, that was a leap year, I think. That was a pretty brutal time for the man franchise, and I know some guys lost their jobs over that one. EA comes through the following year and releases Madden 97. They finally get the chance to go head to head with Sony on the PlayStation platform. Took a year to regroup, had tiburon.

"Train traveling from Denver, Colorado to Oakland, California in 1984, well, you could say that was when the Madden video game franchise was born, and today we're going to bring in an episode on the incredible product journey of Madden NFL football. In part to honor the recent passing of American football legendary coach and broadcaster and in a way, product person, John Madden, in this very special bonus episode of rocketship FM. Welcome to rocket ship FM. Rocket ship FM is produced in partnership with product collective. We are your hosts, Michael soccer, and I'm Mike belsito. John Madden was larger than life. And we could tell you who he was, but it's probably better if someone else did. Yeah, how about award winning sportscaster Joe buck in this episode of a football life back from 2017? Here's Joe buck. Okay, so there's this guy. And he's a big guy. He was an ex offensive lineman. Then he became a head coach in the NFL for the open raiders. He wore a lot of bad 70s clothes and he was the head coach of this team. It was just a hitch in the mouth, crazy football team. And then he gets out and then the next thing you know, he's in these beer commercials and he's busting through walls and he becomes a broadcaster and he says boom and whap that he's drawn on a telestrator and he gets really loud, he gets really fast. You know like they do in wrestling. He rides around in a bus. He doesn't like being in a plane across the country, going from town to town, game to game city to city. People can't get close enough to him, but he's kind of a loner. He's a guy that likes his privacy, but on Sunday, he will light up your television screen with words and aren't even words. That's John Madden. And he's dearly missed in the game today. He's dearly missed in the game and with his recent passing, he's dearly missed in this world already, but his legacy will definitely live on. It'll live on for so many reasons and so many different ways, but we're going to dig into one of the legacies that he leaves behind. Madden, NFL football, the video game franchise. And this isn't just any video game franchise. It's one of the most successful sports game franchises of all time. According to the New York Post, the Madden games have equated to more than 4 billion in sales and have appeared on more than 30 different platforms. The kids just starting to play Madden today on platforms like PS4, PS5 Xbox, even on iPhone and Android devices. It's actually possible that their parents or even grandparents played Madden NFL football when they were about their age, which is kind of wild to think about. That is really wild. But what made Madden such a great coach and broadcaster translated very well to influencing video games. Here's one of Madden's broadcasting partners Al Michaels. As he talks about this a bit in a recent segment on NBC sports. But he was in artist in making the complicated simple. Making a complex game accessible, understandable, educational and usually entertaining. Same can be said for his iconic video game. When the software people approach John about putting his name on their idea. If the defense is he didn't just say yes, he dove in. And over the years worked with him to make sure that game was as close to the real deal as possible. This is what the game of football is all about. The people could truly learn the game he loved as they played how you doing. To Madden, simply collecting a check for the rights to slap his name on the video game. That wasn't good enough. The game had to be more than that. It had to be realistic. It had to be instructive. But it almost didn't happen. Remember that Amtrak ride I mentioned earlier? Yeah, that's where you said the NFL video game franchise was actually born, right? Yeah, that's true, but it's also on that very same train ride where similar to Madden's playing career, the video game franchise was almost over before it even started. On that ride, it was trip Hawkins, the founder of Electronic Arts game studio or EA who pitched the idea of John Madden becoming the face of the new football video game, EA was planning to release in the coming months. But because EA was producing games for computers that were rudimentary compared to today's standards, not like the PlayStations and xboxes were used to, trip flow to the idea of the game being 7 on 7, not 11 on 11, which how football is played on every Sunday. Yeah, and was there an issue with that? A big one, right? Madden just looked at him and said, but that's not football. Well, that is true. We see 22 players on the field every week, not 14. That's right, and trip Hawkins and his electronic art studio. If they were going to make the video game as realistic as John Mann and wanted to, in order to lend his name to it, it's going to take a little bit more time. In fact, it's going to take a lot more time. Of course, they must have agreed, right? Because we all know the incredible rise of the Madden NFL franchise now. Yes, they ultimately did. Of course, they actually may have felt like they had to. John Madden wasn't EA's first choice to be the face of their upcoming video game. They actually wanted legendary quarterback Joe Montana, but he already had a contract with Atari. Then they approached cow football coach Joe cap, but cap on a perpetual royalties, and he actually turned EA down. So, wait a minute. We might have been talking today about the cap NFL video game franchise. Maybe so, right? But of course, history didn't play out that way. And in 1988, they released the very first Madden NFL game for the Apple two computer actually. Obviously, the 1988 iteration looked a lot different from the ultra realistic almost cinematic version that we see today. But it gave people what they wanted, which really didn't exist. And that was a more realistic version of an NFL based football game. And that realism, even if it was 1988 realism, it made a very big difference to John Madden. This game it had to be real. I mean, the offensive lineman that had to move like offensive linemen, talking about this aspect of the game is NFL writer Ken belson on this NBC News segment. It's interesting looking back there are just these distinctive chapters to his career. There was the coaching error, then the broadcasting era, but there's a generation of fans who really know him mostly, perhaps totally as the face of the iconic NFL video game franchise, John mad football. What do you make of how someone is old school is Madden became this sort of video game entrepreneur? Well, he was an entrepreneur at heart. And I think what makes the game great and Madden's contribution to it was he was a stickler for details. He could have had a video game sort of become just off the shelf. But every single year he wanted to improve the game and he would bring software developers from EA to his home in California and literally go over how to improve the game. Now, he didn't understand the software necessarily, but he would try and get them to make the game more realistic. So for instance, the offensive line, well, they don't score any points in these video games. But he wanted them to move just like offensive lineman do in real games. It didn't necessarily enhance the game other than aesthetics and make it more realistic. And he software engineers who didn't necessarily know football had to translate his vision for the game into X's and O's. And that really was the hallmark of it. It's precision. And it's realism. It's precision. It's realism. And it's all because John Madden was a product person. Think about it. As product people, John Madden did exactly what we do. He communicated what was important to the team of developers. He articulated the why. Those offensive linemen, they needed to move like offensive lineman because they were offensive line. That's how football worked. So that's how this football video game needed to work. Did he know how they'd be able to develop that? No. Of course not. And let's face it often times we don't necessarily know how the development team is going to develop what they're going to develop in any product. No, I mean, hey, hopefully we can all speak the same language, but even still, even not being able to talk deep tech with the team, it was important to John Madden that he communicated these small details, so.

"Will. Speaking of cop, Tom, you'll be in LA Sunday for niners rams. Big game for the niners because they're currently in that 6 seed. But they go with Trey Lance this week, but it's got to be exciting for the week 17 first year. You get a game like that where there's a lot on the line there. Fox on four 25 Sunday. I think what Al said. This is finishing my first full season here with America's game of the week in the late window and when Fox has the double header. But I think Al said it perfectly at the very beginning, which is when you get to that last week and you have for either team when you have a clear playoff ramification when and you're in, that's just a really exciting juice to be a part of. And the niners have a lot Jimmy swirling around them. Who is going to ultimately play the quarterback position in this game. Obviously, when it's division rivals, when they have a history and how the seeding could ultimately line up that some people have already looked and seen, could we see Brady and Jimmy G, could that be a potential but there's just a lot out there where we're really excited for this one Sunday. Now you have a play in game. I mean, you basically have a playoff game with chargers raiders. Have you seen this crazy thing about if the colts lose at 1 o'clock, they both get in with a tie? Yeah. Well, I keep thinking about it. Staley said the Chargers coach. Oh no, no, no. He wouldn't even think about anything like that. I'm sure Rishi besides who feels the same way. I think back to the Herm Edwards line, several years ago. You play to win the game. You don't play to tie the game. I can't see that happening. Tell me, the game's in Vegas Sunday Night. What has his Vegas? Are they all in on the Raiders? Are they rabid about the NFL and the Raiders are in Vegas? Because I just, you know, there's so much to do in Vegas. I could see a sports team sort of, you know, maybe not. And it's such a big tourist place, but go ahead, give me a little. First of all, the hockey team is crazy. I mean, they love because Vegas has a lot of transplants. A lot of people grew up in other places, right? And of course, Vegas has a ton of stuff to do. But you can't go to the show. You can't go to the casino every night. So you have sports. And with the Raiders in particular, tons of people fly in from the Bay Area from Los Angeles, listen to the 12 or 13 seasons here. So you have a whole bunch of folks in the Allegiant Stadium who not necessarily are from the vagus area. But they've had no trouble as far as I know selling tickets. Stadium is great. It's a beautiful stadium. And I mean, to me, I think if you had to say, who's the next franchise that the NBA would put in? I would say Vegas. And baseball, if you build a stadium with a retractable roof, it's too hot to play there in the summertime. As well, because when you look at the golden knights, it's impossible to get a ticket to those games. It's fantastic..

"Out in the lobby hangs and how we would position himself in a lobby. Talk about that. That we weren't able to get that at the documentary. I think this is fascinating, Jimmy. Oh yeah. He loved the BC love to engage with people and people would see him and they'd come by and he would discuss anything and everything and of course for the most part they wanted to know about football and about their team. He's in a town in a given town, the old one, and hey, what do you think, how did she be today? Cowboys, et cetera, et cetera. It's so funny because I mentioned cosell. Cosell used to sit in the lobby all of the time too. But Howard wanted to be recognized and Howard among other I traveled with Coachella. He only brought one jacket. He brought the yellow tweety bird Jack and he wore on television. And he wear that in the lobby, and he never should go, and he's got the two pain everything. And then Howard, you know, he would almost invite people over. And Howard he could be he could be very funny. We went to a lot of hotels where there aren't a Saturday night and there's a wedding going on in the ballroom and all of a sudden the wedding party now understands that Howard Cosell is in the lobby and they'll come out and then the Brighton will come out and Howard would look at the bride and say, you know, you could have done so much better. He enjoyed and John was very funny too. But people gravitated to John. They just love to be with him, and he loves to be with them. And, you know, it's funny. You talk about the everyman quality and related to everyone. And this is not in any way shape or form and to be sort of a negative because people seem to always turn money things into a negative. But one of the things in the Doc was that Fox was able when they first got the NFL and got it from CBS. It took them 12 million to get John Madden to come over and give them the credibility they needed. Was was that important? Listen, everyone says money's not important or it's not about the money..

"To hear you say that because we so enjoyed it from the very first moment of her saying, you know, people would always tell me what you can't win them all. Well, why can't you? What did you say? That was great. And then she said, he had one floor. Well, he couldn't drive. Was that the time? Actually failed his driver's test. Yeah, that was it. Yeah. Virginia, I mean, he just have to love the fact that she was trying to get a pilot's license. And John refused to get on an airplane after 1979. But I already were talking about the anniversary. So I think it was their 48th or 49th anniversary. It's 2008. And we are going to do as is the case this week too. We get the last game of the season on Sunday Night. And this week, of course, we get chargers raiders, which is perfect. That's when and lose out. So in 2008, we're looking for that game or as close to it as you can get. And the game looks like it's going to wind up in New York. I can't remember whether it was the jets or the Giants. So it's the week before and we're going to get the New York game. But what happens, buffalo somehow comes from behind and in Denver and beach them with a big fourth quarter rally. And then San Diego wins, and then the only game that's going to be win in lose out is Denver at San Diego. Now, what was going to happen is that John had born a great piece of jewelry because Virginia was going to make a very rare trip to join John in New York and they've got these plans and maybe a little Broadway. And then the Buffalo Bills come in and beat Denver. We're going to San Diego. End of that trip. So we got to get in the bus and go across the country and I guess you carry the ring with the McGee with the Virginia at some point in the off season. I'm glad you brought up the bus because I am fascinated by the whole thing of him being afraid to fly having the panic attack and when he said he was never going to play again as the documentary so well, he never flew again. That was it. And the story. Now, when you worked with him, I assume you would fly to the stadium. You didn't take the bus with him, right? No, no, no, no. Now and another great thing in the Doc that drivers of the bus Yarborough with the last name, I think that was great to see. And Joe. Yeah, that was great. With the bus, now when he was coaching, no problem flying or is it just he didn't have a choice and he did it? How did he end up in no choice? Oh no. And then when he started in broadcasting, he did fly. And by the way, so a little bit of trivia here, the last flight he took. He was doing a game in Tampa. And he's flying home. And it's a Tampa to San Francisco flight that's going to stop in Houston. And he's going to change planes. And he's on the Tampa to Houston leg. And that's when he had the all time attack and said, if this thing lands, I'm off forever. So that's when they landed in Houston. He went to the train station, took the train the Russian away home. Now you guys are probably too young to remember in the old days airline tickets. You need to peel one off so you'd have an O in the middle street you've had Tampa to Houston and then you'd have Houston to San Francisco..

"You know, we always talk about the only person that we always talk about being universally liked. We've never heard of bad word about. It's been Scully. And when John passed, it hit me that John's in the same exact category as vin. That is not one person was a bad thing. I think then only amazingly Vince Scully only retired a couple of years ago whereas John like you said it's been out of the picture for many years. And I think he was just sort of an out of sight out of mind guy never had a social media presence, whereas vin was still working and clips of vin would still get posted all the time on Twitter. Those are the two guys that, you know, you say who else, I think it's just Vin Scully and John Madden. I can't think of anyone else. No offense to ally. I know you call games, but you're working in the social media era. Are you going to get people who don't like you in this day and age? But of course. And yeah, I mean, John and Vinny, as close to being universally loved, I'll tell you somebody who died the other day too. Betty White. Yes, that is force testing. But Betty White, you see all of the accolades that are tossed her away almost living to be a hundred years old and yeah, there's just there was something about John. There's something about not only what they did professionally, but just they're manner. The way people perceive them. And for John, even though he was out of the limelight, I mean, the mad game was still there every year. That was important. And every once in a while, you'd see John show up at something, but he's one of those guys. I mean, you know, you just don't forget him. Anybody who remembers him. And you know, the other thing that's interesting, Jimmy is that the last game John did was the Super Bowl in Tampa following the LHC's Pittsburgh against Arizona. I did the game with him. It was the end of our 7th year together. And I never walked out of a booth and felt any better than I did that day because I thought every element of the show hit we have James Harrison running back in the interception hundred yards. Santonio Holmes cash, Larry Fitzgerald having a fantastic postseason scoring with two and a half minutes to go to give Arizona the lead. What are they doing in the Super Bowl to begin with? It was everything was great. The pictures were terrific. John, I thought was as good as he's ever been. And that was it. So there's a glow, and I walk into the truck afterwards and everybody's toasting each other. And then I go home and I'm thinking, wow, this is so great. I mean, John is still top of his game, 7 years into this thing next year. We're going to open up Sunday Night's football because Dallas is going to open up their new stadium. So we know we're going to get the cowboys at Jerry world. And then all of a sudden in April, you know, they kept me and he goes, I've been out here for a week trying to talk him into going on, and no. And when John stepped aside, all he said was it's time. He didn't need any fans. He didn't even need any goal going away, celebration or tour or anything like that. That was John, it's time..

"You know, from trying to book guests, 38 requests, 38 yeses. Every person who we asked to speak to said yes. And the most important thing for Joel Santos, the fantastic co director and myself Joe nagy our editor, the entire wonderful team skip Clark, the DP. All knowing that John and I know Al feels this way too, that John was able to hear Al to hear that course of voices gathered with his son Mike with his family and really get the chance to absorb how people felt what they thought. Three days before his passing. As you say, Jimmy, it's just an incredible piece of timing. We're obviously so sad about John's passing, but we're so grateful knowing that he was able to see it and that he liked it. What month did you do the interviews with John in person where he watched the screen and stuff like that? When did that take place? That was over the summer. We did that, that was the principal interview with John. We went up and visited him a couple of the subsequent times audio only. But that was over the summer and again Alan knows this well and Pleasanton as part of goal line productions, the production company that he owns. He has a sound stage there, the incredibly, that's the space where he watches NFL games on Sunday. And that we construct in our own video screen. And that was where we played the clips for him. Oh, that's fascinating. So that way we saw him in the dock. That's what he watches the games on Sunday. Al have you ever been there? Have you ever seen that set up? I have. Yeah. When I was with John, those 7 seasons, we take some ancillary stuff up there, but it's a great setup. He's got all kinds of it's like a sports for basically, right? The chairs and the big screens and John would be the kind of guy who on a Sunday after his retirement, which sit there and watch 7 games at once. He was like, I guess I Pereira is in the Fox studios trying to watch every game and weigh in on every rule that comes into play. So he loved it. I mean, John would get up early on Sunday on the West Coast, watched the 10 o'clock games, watch the games at 1 o'clock, one 30, and then the Sunday Night game, then, of course, be there on Monday night as well. He didn't miss anything. He loved it. Interesting. Now, I don't want to get more of it, but I have to just for a second. Tom, when news came that he passed them 24. Was that a complete shock? Did you hear? Did you hear anything about bad health leading up to it or complete stunner? No, I was stunned and not to say that and again, I know Al because of his friendship with John was aware of some of the health challenges that John had had in his life. He was 85 years old, Jimmy. But regardless of those being aware of those concerns, I was still stunned. The very first call I made was to Mike Madden his son. I was fortunate that Mike picked up. And Mike shared, again, this feeling, this gratitude that the family had, that John.

"To be joined by our guest, he is a voice and a face, all our college football audience knows well, even though he has moved on to doing a lot of NFL stuff and that's one of the things we want to touch on here, but it's bigger than NFL. It is time for all the Tom thanks for joining us on the audible today. Bruce and Stewart, thank you so much for having me guys. I appreciate it. Read all the time incessantly. Can't break the habit. All right, well, we're appreciative of that. Tom, one of the things I wanted to have you on the main reason is back before the season, we were at an off site at Fox in Arizona, and they showed us a tease of what you had been working on in this amazing dock that you had put together along with our mutual friend Joel Santos at Fox. That was the most comprehensive look at John Madden and to be able to show him and as it happened, the documentary aired and a lot of people saw it on Christmas Day. And I think people were amazed at what they saw and all the voices they heard and everything. And then as our audience knows now, John Madden passed away as we're taping this yesterday. I think it's three days after the Doc aired and I'm just curious what were the emotions like in your head knowing this work that he got to see it he got to see all the behind the scenes stuff that maybe didn't have time to run in the whole piece. What did you think when you heard the news? We were stunned. Joel and I and everyone who was a part of producing all Matt and Bruce, we were just stunned and really heartbroken. We are really bolstered by the fact as you referred to it that we know I talked to Mike his son, the day before John suddenly passed and had a great conversation with him 45 minutes and I asked him to describe what John's experience was watching it. John was in his den at his home in pleasonton, he had a lot of family around him. And they asked him just lock in as best you can here for this hour and a half and he did that. And when it was over, John pulled the room, what did you think? Or what did you think? Or what was your favorite moment? Or what did you like? And then Mike, who was so anxious, what did you think? And he said he loved it. And I can't tell you how much that means to Joel and me to shanks and to Richie Zions who were really the two catalysts that made this come to life. We're so grateful John had the opportunity surrounded by his family to see this and to hear how people felt about him. What were the so in the documentary obviously you talked to a lot of different people on camera, but you did get time with John. What were those? I mean, first of all, how much time and over how different maybe sittings you did that and what were those conversations like? Well, we had a series of visits with him Stewart from the beginning where John was more than willing to cooperate, but not necessarily to participate, a pretty big difference. And remember, John had left largely left the public stage after being ubiquitous for three decades. And as a result, when you're that much of a fixture, you're also fixed in people's minds. You're not necessarily permitted or allowed to age. And because a decade or more had passed since anyone had seen John at length, certainly on a larger stage, he there was a lot of conversation that went into whether, in fact, John would be comfortable enough to do this. But once we presented him with the idea that we really, really want to hear from you and we're going to touch on these different parts of your life and we're going to show you a series of clips from others talking about you as well as you watching some scenes from your own life. I think that was a key turning point. And the very first thing we showed, John, is the first thing you see. His own retirement press conference. I'll be curious, do you guys have any memory of that at all? The film of how John looked and sounded as he retired at such a young age from the Raiders. Did that do you guys have any memory of that? I'll be honest, Tom. First of all, by the way, this pains me to say this. I'm actually I found out a little older than you, by a couple of months. So it annoys me because you're not supposed to admire people who are younger than you. But I'd be honest, I do not remember any of that because and I'm obviously older than stew. Just the timing of it, I certainly remember him as a broadcaster and I've watched a ton of NFL films on that, but just some of the things of him being basically, obviously he doesn't look like Sean mcvay, but the Sean mcvay we think and cliff Kingsbury with all these guys who were so young when they got to be a head coach that he had this.

"An emergency podcast to talk about somebody's death, but John Madden, I think one of the most influential sports media members of my lifetime, he might even be in the running for first passed away today, age 85, the timing was kind of crazy because we just had this documentary about him on Christmas Day and there was this whole resurgence of Madden's impact on sports and beyond and all this stuff. And so kind of as shocked as I probably am going to be about somebody who is 85 years old, but I got to say Brian, I was shocked because it felt like we were just talking about them all week. Absolutely. And you and I were texting during the documentary and the big part of that was John Mann had not been on camera in a really long time. He's done interviews from time to time. I talked to him a couple years ago, but he hadn't done anything, and then you see him on that rinaldi Doc. And he sounded really good. He looked good. He had that recognizable John matten voice, which every time you hear it you and I are children of the 80s and you get excited and you feel like, oh my gosh, here's John Madden he's telling stories and you get a little glad voice kind of going on and I don't know. I'm absolutely stunned right now. He one of the many great things about his career was it took three turns, right, where you have this raiders coach turn, where he's one of the most successful NFL coaches just by winning record of all time. He was the guy when I was growing up we had to beat the Raiders. We could never beat the Raiders. The Raiders gave the Patriots the worst playoff loss of my childhood and madam was the guy and it was like you only knew a couple of the coaches and you Tom Landry and you chucked all your new John Madden. And then it was basically everybody else. And then he leaves, guess he got burned out, whatever it was. And immediately goes into announcing and immediately is unbelievable. He's so good at it. And I remember as a kid, I was like 6 or 7th grade. He even hosted SNL. And at that point, cosell was the only person in the media that you ever could have imagined in a million years would actually host SNL. You know, out of any sports media person, nobody else was doing that. But it was like a comet watching happen. He was so much better at announcing football than anybody else we had. It wasn't close. He's competing against Merlin Olsen, bob trumpy, Tom brookshire, whoever was on Monday Night Football. They were never good. He taught me about football, he entertained me. He was this character. He was kind of became almost like a family member, right? When somebody hits like he hits, you feel like they're in your family and that's how I felt with him for two decades. Here's how big he was, CBS decides he should be the number one NFL color analyst on the NFL and CBS, which was the broadcast, right? And they do this in season bake off for the guy who's going to be his play by play guy between pets and moral and Vin Scully. Now think what a legend Vince Scully was, 40 years ago, CBS decided he was insufficiently good enough to be maddened partner and kicks him to the curb, and he goes to NBC. So that's incredible. I read that story and the logic actually made sense because they were like Harvard Terrell Neil. I was I think the guy who was executive and he was saying how, hey, look. Scully is great, but you know he talks. Madden, if we're going to make this work, he's going to talk a lot. It was one of the rare times that sports TV history that somebody's like, these two are great. Maybe not necessarily great together, putting some all. He's not going to say a lot. It could be like the perfect balance. Boy, was that assessment right. Some are all mad and are still the greatest announcing team of my lifetime. I don't think there's ever been a better one. I don't even know who number two would be. I think they're so far ahead of everybody else we've ever had. No, it caught pat at the perfect moment because pat had been this big star in the 70s. He was just a big guy I've met a former NFL player. And he needed a second. He needed a boost, right? He needed the booth. So they put him with Madden and first and ten. You know, Montana, rice, touchdown, boom, get out of the way, and then John man's got all the time he needs to fill fill it up with sound. And to use the telestrator, which I used to call the CBS chalkboard back in the old days. You did say something about there was no competitor. I will say this. When men starts late 70s early 80s, the guy is still Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football. He is that's fair. Yeah, you're right. You're right. He's still the guy and run all these Doug made this point, but John man came in like everybody else who's been ever been good at anything. You know he said Bill, he said, they're doing this the wrong way. They're calling football the wrong way and the thing they're doing is Howard is great at personality. He's great at the morals of the game and the big stories and storylines and stuff. But he scared a football. Itself, the way it's played on the field, he doesn't understand it, and he doesn't think the people at home will understand it. And John Mann goes actually the best way to understand a football game is to figure out all the complexities of football and just explain it to people at home in a way they understand. He'd done this class at the university of Cal Berkeley, so I talked to him about this once and what he did is he told me he'd go up on a chalkboard and he'd draw football plays and now there's people in class who are not football people, right? They're people that like watching football on Sunday and he'd go, okay, you know when he's going here when he's going here and he would watch them and he would watch the moment he lost them. So he's explaining a blaze. I'm gonna watch the moment their eyes glaze over. And I'm gonna walk right up to that point, or I'm gonna explain it in a way that doesn't make their eyes gloss over, right? That's really funny. That's the way you announce a game. You don't run away from the game. You just explain it away people can understand. And I saw people on Twitter here last few minutes, going, you know, man was a great coach. He was a great announcer. He was a video game guy. I want to add something to that list. He was a great explainer of football. And in that way, he's not just like, well, Madden, you know, you can draw a line for men to Chris collinsworth. You can draw a line from Madden to Kevin Clark to build barnwell to everybody to Zach glow in basketball, right? Everybody who says, I'm going to tell you show you how this game is played and make this complicated thing understandable to you. That's what John Madden could do. When I was a kid, the announcers were mostly terrible. We had by today's standards, right? It was very, very like, well, you know, it's a big spot for them here, and this would be a huge first down if they're able to get it. And the most basic stuff. And Madden came in and it was like, honestly, revolutionary seems like a weird thing to say about a sports matter. So it really did feel revolutionary. I was so used to this generic stuff unless it was Monday night. Monday night was like this good old boys thing. I grew up with Meredith and cosell and then Meredith got bounced and then it was like GIF and this rotating cast of and they always tried to make it kind of late and fun, but cosell overpowered everything. He was such a force of nature. Madam was the first one who was like, oh, I feel like I'm watching the game with somebody. I feel like he's on my couch with me, telling me what's going on..

"As I mentioned a moment ago and sacks is the voice of a Princess Leia and she is a talented actress for many many years on on stage in both on and off Broadway Productions. And she is the former president and CEO of the renowned theater design firm sacks Morgan studio and you can find out more about her and the fact that she's working on these days at theatrical intelligence.com while and thank you so much for joining us today. It is a pleasure to talk with you and I'm been looking forward to this ever since way just connected. You know that there's just so much we could talk about because of this a project that is such a huge part of American. Well, I guess you could say even Global culture. I mean this thing is reach around the world. And so the original radio adaptation was first broadcast in 1981 and back. In those days you were doing stage acting at the time. Is that correct? That's correct. Yes. I played the leading role on Broadway in Dracula APA Frank langella and did that for over a year and I loved working in the you know, our country's resident Theatres because they're so varied in their approaches to producing plays and then also the theaters themselves very, you know, the little key we do lunch and then they're huge ones and I loved the surprising aspect of of working in different places. Yeah, like your locally we have the Orpheum Theater downtown Phoenix and that is just an absolutely beautiful beautiful theater. Yeah. Yeah. I've been in there. Yes, beautiful never worked there, but yep. Lovely. Yeah. Well, so how did you first hear about the Star Wars project? Well, it was one of those things where I just got a call from my agent and he said that if I was free I was being asked to do a radio adaptation of storm. I said what that is very strange and I guess I had met John Madden once brilliant brilliant director and said he must have been you know on a tight line or something like that, but it just sort of suddenly happened and a couple of days after getting the call. We we started it and it was just a just horrific great son Mark Hamill from the original film was in it then Terry King did dead. How long is solo and Carrie was terrific in that? So it was this something out of the norm for you to get asked to audition for a radio project or or what was that audition process? Like well, there was no addition. I just got called by my agent and they asked me to do it. I guess they must have been kind of dealing with a last-minute schedule or something. But I was asked I could do it and I did it was wonderful. It was a real Joy. Wow. Yeah, just call up and say hey we've got this roll for you. Come do it. Yes, exactly. That's all too rare in the theater and film business. So have you done any other radio projects before this month? Do you know what I I don't think I have I've done radio things but mostly it has to do with interviews and commercials for I was doing but it was a complete surprise and and of wonderful one, huh? That's that's amazing. So the so the film was released in 77 and the radio drama 81. Did you ever think that Star Wars would be such a huge cultural phenomenon as it is today, you know on one level I was I was completely surprised. It's just really the the global phenomenon is something that rarely happens in the world and on another level. It makes perfect sense. It just wage has that you know, the magic.

An Interview with NFL Legend Jerry Kramer

"I'm speaking to Gerry grammar Jerry is so good to see a happy new year how are you thank you doing I'm doing great been good been bad been in between but I'm happy to be here and I've always enjoyed 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

End of Decade Special

"I'm John Madden and I'm here with my co presenter. Under Harrison as we in our guest use our personal favorites that have kept don minds off brexit climate change and cheering for the past ten years. Hello Hello Sean how you doing. I'm very well your last chance to say this was the decade of and so what was it in the decade of this chancers the decayed of other everything. Everything fell to pieces both in good ways about ways at music. The music disintegrated and facilitates into a billion different things. So it's impossible to say this is the sound of the time that is captured. The moments that it doesn't happen anymore that everybody lives in their entire entirely sort of separates had medically sealed genre bubbles and but also I think it's a it was a time when the public realm realm the wheel. Shed sometimes finally properly replaced by million private realms. All you know create by social media bills created by your political bubbles and I it it it created a world where every body is only talking to a version of themselves. The other thing depressing sauna. Hi Sean John. Is the caving in pop culture as well as real culture et. You've gotta get used to losing all the time. There's a reason why the avengers movie were so big with A. Ah That's basically what has happened in politics as well. So it's going to be. A Weirdo. Decay Tacoma because just putting things back together again absolutely crushing stop in bed. Thousands Aglietta never bottom. We'll we'll do it together. You and I the podcast in the team will put everything back together before we start you and I went to the Arab Exhibition Super Troopers Neo tune and Lina speak. What do you make of it? I thought it was all right. I thought it was beautifully designed. I didn't think it was enough stuff in it. Buying in it's lacking in actual touchstones touchstones. It's lacking in this. Is The real guitar flocking. These are the real close because the move replicas. They went after so you kind of lead through room by room thing which is beautifully recreated created to give you the feel of individual albums. But when you're in there there's lots of fun things like appeared nineteen seventies telephone. You can pick it up and listen to sound clips on the ton of interview interview. And there's a great little hand held I pod type thing which gives you video content but the actual exhibition itself is lacking in artifacts. I wanted to feel like I was in the room with the piano. Were you know sakes all was written. I wanted to fill this recreation of this video but it just felt a villa can experience a non exhibition. So it's interesting but I think when the when your gold standard is is David Bowie is the does not see I see we. We have some guests to announce to help us with our deliberations we do and the both big mouth regulars writer broadcaster Guardian new states person. She's hot from those borders for. She's I'm an angel. Gabriel in in the local Ms Nativity. which happens in pulp? I told you this now. Look You Merry Gentlemen. The hot from the borders hot for the PLA on my twitter bio good-looking holy been an annual fundraiser. A couple of nights ago and I was steeped in tell you under Harrison. Yeah I was going to be a wise woman. I thought that was quite exciting in a good feminist statement. I'm just walking down on a hill with a woman and a man and a baby donkey do have a donkey.

I live in on the board in in the observer pitchers of the year. Just keeping it back to bringing it down. You talked to Richard Russell records about the late Keith. Very poignant and the line the sides me was I think he would have been an amazing old. Yeah it was. It was really like to read how. How did Richard Russell Sound and talking to me was was a tough one I Observatory section is a really tough thing to put together. Because you're basically trying to marshal will people to talk about a dear friends and come in symptoms. Help ghosts might stuff. You're writing for them. And last year I did Dave about Chaz which is probably my most emotional experience the tense Richard Russell. Yeah it was It was hot and obviously it's a difficult subject because the way we wanted to get to make it absolutely correct and have helpless at the end and everything but yeah him saying that the Almond under fina rules brilliant thing. You had a big mouth year on the fans about the funeral enroll. There's an. I'm look online as well as an amazing Christmas lights tribute to Keith Flint. That's been shared on twitter that somebody the whole Arab side of the House is a tribute to him but yeah it was hard and you know. He was one of these artists that brought people together. I am not your typical prodigy. Found absolutely love them. I saw them dreading. I got very confused lost and scared but loved it and before I start your mating birthday and I still remember Brit so I it is A. It's a it's an honor to do those pieces actually so a great honor Sean. Here's the key expert panellist well. According to the Guardian. He's he's built a reputation as one of the music industry's most authoritative commentators. Watch out the music industry his book. The final days of am I sending the Peik was named one of the best books of two thousand nineteen by the Fine Nanteuil Times. No less and the Belfast Telegraph.

That palomino has sent to London until they stupid barstools and buses smell of we microwave passengers it show favourite eighteen Ford. Hello Ayman favorite a massive peaceful louder sound on whether the two thousand ten's killed the album. Ah yes I'd kill the album's decades date not migrate conclusions. They reconfigured the album. I can't it so the new shape I think for certain artists. The album has always been an irrelevance and it was basically just a thing into kind of walk singles all kind of make money so the idea of the obviously you separate the album is a commercial enterprise versus. The album is an artistic enterprise so pop music never fully adapted to album as four my and that's not flow on in streaming aged that's why pulp is so preeminent because it's all about the single by think for the biggest deal interest in albums still buy albums or consume albums as we as we say yeah I don't think it's Dad I think it's very cut of a very binary thing decided that yes. The album is alive and healthy of the album. As Diet I think for certain genres. It will remain uncertain certain genres I think digital display apart. Because it wasn't that important side of the Commercial Rimet He said the album is transitioning. Because yeah absolutely is gender nonspecific the album. It's fluid beaten apple music. Well it's not quite like a dirty carbon what it had a massive head start and obviously it's model is different. Because it's got up two types of users it's got those on the ad-supported version and those pants subscriptions or rolled into family subscriptions or whatever is Apple.

Super Bowl 2019: Pregame coverage before Patriots vs. Rams

"The game, of course, is a big part of it. But also there are other sort of story lines beyond the the Rams and the patriots in a couple of them. There are interesting to me is I want to start Myron with with with gronk. He's kind of had a resurgence a little bit here in the playoffs starting to see a little bit of the gronk of bold wrestlemainia is the first Sunday in April. I'm of the belief that I'm going to see grog make his debut in the WWE it wrestlemainia and then his time in football. Is over. After today. Do you agree with that? And do you think that whatever happened today win or lose could have any effect either way? Well, I think that makes a lot of sense excuse me, especially because you're talking about a guy who can probably get millions of dollars on a pretty limited. Wrestling scheduled Cadillac around. Arousing Brock Leser, like it's not like the old days where he's going to have to wrestle three hundred days out of the year. This guy's going to get paid to show up on special events and make millions. He's talked so much about how much money he saved throughout his career. He's talked about not wanting to play too long. I don't know if today affects anything because he's a first ballot hall of Famer whether he wins or loses today, he's got a bunch of money in the Bank. And I think he could be the next rock in. In. I think he could be that. He's got a personality. You're not a wrestling guy. He's not the rock rock. Am wrestling. He could be that. Well, rock started out as what rocky my via. He was fighting from the family name. And then he emerged as his own way. I can't broadcast that personality in the WWE. We'll promote him. I think he could become a superstar who eventually goes in the movies and forgets football. All right. I I'm not going to argue with the wrestling part of it. But because you're wrong. But Dan, do you think this is it for I? Yeah, I do. But I do believe that tonight's result swings that okay? I can see if they lose tonight especially in close ballgame Brady convincing gronk for another year. Come back for another year. Don't forget is AO win the first round tackled. It's not part of this team. He'll be back. Like, we give me one more run. Gronk I can see that happening. Now, if they win I do believe that he calls it a career as he rightfully shit. Don't take don't. Remember, the comments he made this last week of him talking about the wear and tear, and how much it weighs on you. Mentally, and how hard it is to get hurt and have to practice, and how difficult it that difficult of a thing that is now to say that he's the next rock is absolutely outrageous. Like the row how first of all the rock is the rock was a guy that went into wrestling because that was the the the means to an end that was the vehicle. News and his family had been. He was going to you second of all the rock is incredibly business savvy and Hollywood savvy works like a dog like this is a guy. When it comes to football. Yes. When it comes to training for football. Yes. But he doesn't. I mean, the rock literally works like a dog. I need more talking about the rotten. Now. I saw the rock when he was in survivor series as rocky my via no one knew he wasn't good. And he was trying to figure out who he would be gronk could come in in the social media air, which rocketed the rock didn't come in in the social media era. All I'm saying is gronk could be a superstar in wrestling. Well, let me add gronk is only he's only twenty nine it feels like he's been around forever damnit. He's only twenty nine now he's taking a lot of hits bodies like a forty year old guy. But I guess what I'm saying is listen to countdown to kickoff on ESPN radio you've been through this process and Myron, and I haven't the process to decide you know, what that's it. Right. That's a hard process for every athlete. No matter the level, whether you're elite or not is it in part of it. I think is do I have something to go. Do do you think? I mean, we we talk about wrestling and a lot of people may roll their eyes. But it is something I know he can do if he wants whether it can be great or not he can do it is that talked to me about the process of saying I'm walking away. And and how how how players go through that mindset. Yeah. I mean for for me, you know, it was a great majority of it was I don't love the crap anymore. Doesn't it feel like he doesn't either? Yeah. I mean, that's that's no you're not gonna pay. Now granted if someone was going to pay me five million dollars. I would have dealt with it again, if someone's gonna pay gronk ten or twelve million dollars, maybe, but you get you deal with the crap. Like, so many people doing their job you do with that crap. Because you still love it. You love all the things that competition the locker room, the fellas the drive to be great the work, you love all that. And then once you don't love the dealing with the crap anymore that stuff doesn't matter anymore. It's not worth it anymore. And that's when you start facing the question of do I wanna do this anymore? And it makes it completely now. When I went through my transition, I wasn't for sure. Like, I was like all right. I want to get into analysts in broadcasting get into TV TV. And I was like I'm just gonna go rather than sitter sitting around. And wait. So I knew that there was at least the opportunity there for me. Gronk scan have way more. More than I had presented to him. But if you get to that point where you're done loving, the crap that you have to deal with and there are avenues for you to go. It makes it such an easier decision in move for you to go. You know what I'm done? Here's the next Chad having those options, I do think is is huge. You will have a lot of options. And you didn't know when you quit you're going to get to do a show with Matt Jones in my. But then sometimes I have earlier if I did exactly the Lord's blessing. There you are. So let's talk about the next to the players on the field. Maybe the person that has the most sort of its state today. Myron is your guy Tony Romo? I mean. I'm not sure an announcer has gotten this level of praise maybe ever like universal praise of people going Stephen Smith said is the best performance he'd ever seen from an announcer. And so the thing is that's awesome. Except you've got one more game. And I always of the opinion the most important two days in your life or the first in the last at a job. Well, the last impression he's gonna get from us is this game. Is there pressure on him to recreate the magic from two weeks ago? I think there's a ton of pressure on him to do that. And I think the problem is announcers like him who get this early praise. How many of them go down as being folks? And a lot of people don't like, you know, it's unfortunate because you start out liking guys like Tony Romo. He deserves all of this praise, but because you expect now people expect him to be some profit every game the minute. He shows any sort of flora weakness people are gonna jump onto that and start to criticize him. But I think he's facing more pressure than any announcer at a Super Bowl or any analysts had a Super Bowl that I can remember because people think he's like something we haven't seen before. And now he's going to have to deal with that pressure. Incomes care like most of the time. I'll be honest with you, Dan. I don't even know who the announcers are until I realized what network game is on. But with Romo I mean, there are prop bets on how many he's gonna call. Like, this is he is not the biggest story the game is. But you know, he's the second third or fourth. Biggest story. I think a big part of it too is like people are having a ton of fun listening to him. Torino because not only is he very good at what he does in. I've said this as a broadcaster networks you better have quarterbacks on there. Because you you've gotta be able to get people to understand the game different levels that communicated to all kinds of people. But it's the fact of he continuously telling educating people on the wise in house put it's fun. Like, you're having fun. Like John Madden was the last announcer. Who seemed like he was having as much fun as Romo, and it's it's okay. For him to talk over Jim Nance for a second. Because if you were sitting at a bar with your friends are in the living room having a beer with your friends. You talk over your buddy here in this moment. So it's not like this. You know in cookie cutter ish. Oh, we don't do that. Because it's television. But what happens if I'm saying is really good. Then I'm gonna do it. You know? And I think that there is that appreciation for for from people going like this is really good. And he's telling me stuff, that's really. Good. But also like the fact that there's really nobody else on TV sounding like him in ways. Like that like talking over Jim Nance, Jayme lake. It just seems like he's having a blast doing it. There are very few announcers who make the crossover into a personality that they matter Madden did mired. I'd say Barkley has vital. Did like there are many. And I think romo's headed groups, Dan Orlovsky will continue to be on. Would you agree with that? Yes. I think he is definitely in that group of guys where you go. You're now going to watch games because romo's attached to it doesn't matter the game because he's gonna make any game more interesting. Just because of who he is become he's become a part of the game now, and that's a good thing. Because like damn fed people. Like, I think I honestly think there are very few announcers that them just being there matters. I think John Madden. Did I think dick Vitale did Bill Walton? I think dick Vitale did. And I think I think Tony Romo is is sort of becoming like that who's going to win the game. After all this talk who actually is going to
