"Here today with john. Madden shak dp of old henry and lots of other stuff. Thank you so much for coming on the show john. Absolutely thank you for for having me so an interesting story for our listeners. But i was talking to your director. We talk to a lot of directors here but we were really excited to talk to Potsy the director of old henry which is just a phenomenal western in your name came up and because it's the pandemic and we're all working from home. My wife and i are sharing a home office. And she was directly behind me making. Hdtv shows and she heard your name and she wrote on a post it and came over. And she's like he was he was the gaffer on conversations. Which is short that we made in two thousand three. That was shot by frazer bradshaw. Who i believe was the third guest we ever had on the podcast and it blew my mind and it kind of like sent me because i remember talking to you back then anyway. I was trying to remember. How did we find you conversations. I have a theory. But i wanted to see if i was right. Man i know that such a such a small world at times. I was trying to kind of think about that as well. I mean it might've been through an organization filmmakers alliance. That's what i thought. It was like totally was i. Think liam finn or shock telemark. Who ran that organization one of them. I think recommended you. Yeah yeah it was a great organization at the time. Yeah they're still around in some form. And actually i've worked with liam on a bunch of projects Separately from that but at the time they had to things that were a humongous draw to us to make that short number one. If you join them you could get under their group insurance and you could use that for production insurance so we were able to ensure all the gear and hey right this sad contracts and all that all that stuff and number two they had this amazing warehouse in pasadena and they had a bunch of like set pieces that have been donated by warner brothers or something and you could just make a set in their in their space and so we did that. We we made. There's a morgue that figures prominently in the short and we were able to sort of cobble together. Out of the set pieces our own morgue set and we had fly walls and it was. It was pretty amazing. Actually it was a great resource and it's kind of hard to come by that kind of stuff in la or anywhere like today they don't..

"And it's something that i rarely see in movies. Like maybe the way of the gun. The macquarie film but like most most movies and have gun play it just like boom bang. Bang bang bang and with this. I really felt like like every bullet felt like a precious commodity to these characters. Yeah and it's so much so that you know even the sound of that because you know. I've fired guns at arranger on on offensive before they're so loud even to the sound design it was almost like cannons. We just want the loudest gunshot. You could possibly do and so in one of the inspirations was open range the kevin costner shootouts in. That were fantastic. I mean i think that holds the record for the longest shootout still does but it's like seventeen minutes. Plus minute shootout at the end so part of us wanted to try to beat that record but that was stretching so you know in the in the style and tone in the feel of it really looked at hostels assessment suggests james and there will be blood there will be led not being a western but being that early nineteen hundred time period. Yeah openness in the the starkness two things. I think that was a big piece of even the job of the word has feel taken dirty and everything will look look dirty and gross like yes close. Look like they've been wearing them for weeks. Even steven dorf. Who's probably you know. The the handsome missed fella as presented in the movie. Yeah yeah his. His clothes looked like they could use a washing but mean i love the authenticity of that. Yeah i think that comes from shows like deadwood which really sold that you know with the trump agenda mud and things and so you know i think those are of course you know we all get in this business to make a star wars. Where about is the weather one of the original questions. It's you know western space. So i think you know there's pieces of star wars that that's a bigger thing but that in the back of my brain. I'm like you know that's everyone wants to make a star wars movie so make a make a western improved do it. Maybe a chance of the world and kind of the theme of modernity imposing itself at this stage in time like even the first scene when his sons like they got machines that can do you know. They're like digging a trench or something like that machines. They'll do this in a fourth time. He's like neat. Whatever and when you talk about lived in stuff like you know we're not really here to talk about what it's like to work with actors specifically but we can talk a little bit about. Tim blake nelson. I'm sure we're not used to seeing a lead. Who's so inscrutable..

"Like went in and out of having work and her mother also discussed like being impacted by the recession in the film. Which i thought was fascinating and kind of been upfront about you. Know not coming from any big amount of money or anything so you really got a sense that they were always watching out for her and that billy's career in this way has just like it's a whole family enterprise not necessarily in the way of like how we traditionally think about stage parents. I don't think that's the way that they want to kind of present it. I think if. I was seventeen years old like i would not want my parents dearly as closely like hovering as they seem to be in her life but at the same time we're still living through the midst of all the brittany style. If only we had guests on the podcast. Who could not expert draw those lines. Yeah so those threads. But i had a hard time like not viewing her in that context of at least ostensibly like this does seem to be a family that has known the history of young female popstars in recent times and and is really trying to be proactive in her life to not make the same mistakes that other families had made you know again. That is the image that's presented to us. I don't know. I think as with so many things with billy as i kind of talked about him what i wrote like it is a little hard to know. What is the presentation of vulnerability versus what is the actual vulnerability and privacy and it gets kind of muddled. I think by design in her persona. But i do think they're at least trying to present this front of the family being supportive of her being aware of her mental health. And kind of putting that. I in a way that we maybe haven't seen from the quote unquote stage parents of other teen potsy nam's so there's two things in the documentary that to me. Were maybe the slightly more eyebrow arching things. But they're they're the iterative -ly next things beyond what you're describing. Lindsey one is the bieber staff and we actually texted about this recently but the bieber stuff kind of operating like specter of what could be and what shouldn't be an him kind of having a merged beatific on the other side of that but we all know what the subtext is and you know him trying to like cloister billy innocence from that but the other thing and this is a much smaller moment in the film but i thought it was pretty revealing. Which is that moment. Where she's recording the james bond song and she's like the internet's going to think this is bad or corny or whatever and it was maybe the first moment that i've engaged with stuff i obviously. She's reading. she's paying attention. But she's just as susceptible even though she's not seeming because optimal she's just as susceptible as all the people who we perceive as being susceptible because that and that seems to presage.

"On sunday april twenty-sixth fourteen seventy eight. The men behind the potsy conspiracy attempted to murder twenty nine year. Old renzo de medici. While they succeeded in killing his twenty four year. old brother giuliano. The older medici survived as florence reeled. While the potsy family believed the people of florence would happily take their side. The city turned against them. Many of the conspirators were executed that day the following morning. The retribution continued starting with guglielmo. dei pazzi. While lorenzo's brother-in-law had loudly proclaimed his innocence at the moment of the attack he nonetheless fled in his wife. Bianca hold up at the medici palace where. She begged lorenzo to spare his life. Lorenzo agreed but banished him from the city soon after almost all of the male members of the potsy family were arrested. It didn't matter if they were involved or even knew about the conspiracy. The potsy were now enemies florence. Some were banished some imprisoned and some face the same grim outcome of those before them execution the to priests who fail to kill. The renzo sought refuge in a monastery for several days. They were eventually captured mutilated and hanged on may third fourteen seventy eight but the most shocking fate. The thallium capo dei pazzi. He was captured by peasants. Just outside of florence guardsmen. Took him back to the city where he reportedly confessed everything including orchestrating the plot and attempting to overthrow the government. He was hanged and in the family crypt but it was yok oppose religious internment. That caused the uproar. The clergy ended up reburying him elsewhere. In the city and later on a few young boys dug up his corpse and dragged it through town before throwing it into the arno river. Lorenzo domenici then set about destroying the potsy legacy the name potsy was expunged from all official records. The family crest wherever it appeared was painted over. Those surviving members of the family were forced to change their legal surnames. Their wealth was seized by the government and they're valuable belongings. Were put up for auction a month. After the attack the florentine government passed a law stating that any man whose daughter married potsy or took a potsy woman has his wife would lose the right to hold office. This was lorenzo's attempt to stamp out. The potsy line for good bankrupt end shunned from society. Living potsy family members were as good as dead even if they eked out a meagre existence in florence. Although three years later by fourteen eighty one this punishment began to lose. Its context as the attack faded from people's minds. These rules started to look a little harsh. Perhaps in light of this lorenzo and his allies showed some mercy by lifting the official ban on marriage to potsy women. Still few men of importance would align themselves with such a sullied family. Meanwhile the renzo continued to grow his power and influence. He exacted revenge on almost everyone who tried to take him down. But one major original conspirator remained hope. Sixties the fourth. It's unclear just how involved the pope was in the conspiracy. He claimed that he wanted a bloodless coup without murder but the fact that he sent troops to the conspirators aid makes it appear. He supported the plan. Some say though that he believed the attack was taking place at the medici palace. Not in the cathedral. Murder church was something that florentines assumed he'd wholeheartedly condemn instead though. The pope condemned with the people of florence had done. He criticized the killing of the archbishop in priests affiliated with potsy by law. The clergyman should have received some kind of trial in the church. Instead to the pope's great objection they were killed by mob justice in light of this a month and a half after the attack in the duomo. The pope excommunicated lorenzo and interdicted the entire city of florence florentines. Found this double standard outrageous. The pope didn't seem to care about murder church but suddenly wanted to intervene when the people sought righteous retribution. It was hypocritical at best. It's unclear. how many priests actually followed the interdict order. It's likely that florentines still found ways to attend church on sundays. But still the of the rebuke from rome's don afterward. The renzo and pope sixties the fourth began exchanging angry letters. The pope demanded that lorenzo. Ask for forgiveness on behalf. Florence primarily for killing the archbishop in the priests..

"The plan was for everyone to attend mass and then return to the medici palace for lunch. That's where the assassination would take place. A few trusted members of the conspiracy would do the deed. The count of monte sacco was assigned to lorenzo and francesco. Potsy along with the florentine. Nobleman named bernardo baronchelli would take out giuliano once both were dead. They'd announced the news and take the city in victory but at some point on the morning of april twenty. Sixth the plotters. Learn that giuliano. De'medici would not be attending lunch after church that day they were left scrambling and without much time to pivot. Soldiers were already on their way from perrugia just south of florence to prepare for opposition out of time and options the conspirators made a bold choice. They killed the brothers inside the duomo cathedral during mass but murder in the house of god would not be an easy task when the count of monte sacco heard of this change in plans. He refused to murder on church grounds and backed out last minute. Surprisingly to priests offered to take his place juliana nearly thwarted the conspiracy with his unexpected absence. Once again when the others got to the cathedral he was nowhere to be found. According to one account francesco potsy and another conspirator bernardo baronchelli then went back to the medea cheese palace to look for him. They found him in bed feeling on well but somehow managed to talk him into joining them for mass. They even gave him a playful hug on the walk to the cathedral. Their true reason for the embrace was as nefarious as their plot to find out whether juliana was wearing armor beneath his clothing the medici knew they had enemies. So this could have happened often. Although today giuliana was armor free back in the church the plotters quickly agreed on a key point in the service as their q. And when that moment came the assailants sprang into action in the moments leading up to the attack. Francesco patsies brother. Guglielmo was talking to lorenzo but once it began he screamed that he was innocent that he was sorry and that he knew nothing about. This attack might seem like a strange reaction but yoma was conflicted. While he was a member of the potsy family he was also married to lorenzo sister. Bianca to this day it's unclear if the other members of the potsy family knew about the plot well maintained his ignorance. Baronchelli stab giuliano francesco. Patsy joined him piercing giuliano with his dagger. Repeatedly francesco worked himself into such a frenzy that he even stabbed himself in the thigh accidentally. Meanwhile chaos ensued inside the duomo worshippers screamed and fled the din. Echoing around the cavernous room. Giuliano was stabbed somewhere between twelve and nineteen times. He died almost instantly right there in the church. Lorenzo was luckier than his brother. The to priests assigned to kill him were inexperienced with fighting and weapons in the scuffle. One priest grabbed lorenzo by the shoulder before taking aim. When the renzo felt the man's grip he dodged out of the way he ended up with a gash on his neck but it wasn't life threatening. Lorenzo grabbed a sword and fought off the to priests. Then a friend pulled him from the malay. The escape to the sacristy where. A priest prepares his sermons and barricaded themselves inside. They were terrified but for the time being safe after the attack a frantic energy spread across florence the to priests and barron. Shelly fled the city. Meanwhile francesco to ponzi went home to tend to the wound in his thigh archbishop salvia not and a friend named jakko brought leany arrived at the government palace for the next phase of the plan. They were accompanied by thirty mercenary soldiers from pay rusia. They intended to turn the town council to their side by force if necessary salvi told the palace guards. He was there to deliver a message. From the pope it was meant for caesar petrucci. The head of government wants salvia. Di gotta petrucci. He tried to distract him. As the mercenary soldiers took control of the building. But things got muddled quickly. Petrucci caught sight of brought shalini. Who he realized had no reason to be there he could tell something was afoot the mercenary soldiers who are unfamiliar with the layout of the palace where quickly trapped by the palace guards. Ben protrude he ordered the bells be rung in the town square. He needed to signal. Florence was under attack though. Tensions were mounting surprisingly only an hour or two had gone by since the plan was incited within.

The History of Lorenzo de' Medici

"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy v wilson and it's january first happy new year. Lorenzo de medici was born on the stay in fourteen forty nine. The medici family of florence was rich and powerful. They had come to florence sometime in the twelfth century although they had started out as just simple tuscan peasants but over a couple of hundred years they became incredibly wealthy and powerful by the middle of the fourteenth century. There were one of florence's leading families and they also had a reputation for being extremely adept at negotiating in the worlds of politics and money and this was through. Legitimate means as well as through things like bribery. Lorenzo domenici was described as the most medici of the medici. He was nicknamed lorenzo. The magnificent he's been described as the most powerful the most famous the most brilliant the most influential in the world of art thanks to his patronage and the most ruthless came to power in florence along with his brother in fourteen sixty nine after the death of their father and the two of them were ruling together and nine years later. There was a conspiracy to assassinate both of them and to take control of the republic of florence away from the medici. This was called the pazzi. Conspiracy the potsy and the medici were basically rival families within florence. One of the things that had led to this whole rivalry in the conspiracy was that the potsy family had taken over the financial affairs of the papacy and that was taking business away from the medici which the medici did not appreciate the ringleader in. This conspiracy was francesco. Potsy and he wasn't the patriarch of the pazzi family. But he was the one that was driving all of this. The fascination was finally set to take place during easter mass. in fourteen. seventy eight and lorenzo's brother giuliano was killed but lorenzo escaped afterward though. Lorenzo sought retro bution against olive his conspirators. There was a lot of hanging people throwing them out windows. A lot of dismemberments overall it was very gruesome and there were more than seventy executions of purported co-conspirators this whole incident though really shaped lorenzo's that his brother was dead so he was on his own in terms of his leadership at the republic and it had also gotten rid of a lot of actors and demonstrated the links that he would go to so after this whole conspiracy and the war that followed food. He had the support of a lot of the people of florence. He ruled almost as a monarch. Although lorenzo really liked to describe himself as just a highly respectable citizen anything special he and others in the family also acted as patrons to writers and artists and architects including people like botticelli and leonardo davinci among many others there was also of course michelangelo. Who was brought up partially in the medici household lorenzo domenici was also a collector of antiquities and of artwork. Basically what they were doing. They couldn't really afford to pay for the most extravagant biggest name artwork so they would find lesser known undiscovered talent of sort of cultivate them by their work for cheap. It's not however totally accurate to say that the medici family single paid for the renaissance. Sometimes they are described that way. Lorenzo was also a poet himself in addition to his patronage of other artists by the fourteen ninety s though lorenzo's health was declining the city of florence. Also becoming less and less enamored with the lifestyle that he had enabled and encouraged. This is a lifestyle that was just full of lavish festivals. in extravagance. He died at the age of only forty three. His son giovanni later became pope. Leo the tenth.

"In those days, you couldn't tamper with players contracts. Until you were absolutely a registered, you had the cert I'm a Detroit Lion Yeah. So then that meant that Richards. A Half Akeem. Short had to go out and get eleven or twelve brand new players that come in fresh. They had no draft the draft started in nineteen, thirty six. By Bert Bell. He. He was matter of fact I was at a game when they played the when the Bert Bell in Detroit and we stood for his appetite in Nineteen fifty-six. I've been alliance Fan since nineteen fifty. So, anyway. So here they are these players are all one team from. Portsmouth. Half of them are down here we're going to Detroit, who am I going to play with? Yeah. Who but at the same time in Potsy, they gotta trust because Potsy was one that brought them into well because he did that what he was going. To Charles here's my aunts or my question on potsy. Recruit the how did he know these players because you know these were all collies from Man Policy was that's what we talking about the genius potsy. Clark in Nineteen thirty-one in one, thousand, nine, hundred, foot one week because he took over the Portsmouth spartans in Nineteen thirty-one, it was his first year he flipped he brought in nineteen new guys, nineteen thirty, the spartans were dreadful and they brought him potsy and thirty one he brought in nineteen new guys when he came to Detroit. When he came in one, thousand, thirty, four, it was the thing we said was nine of the guys were still with them when Detroit and it was like five of them were still there when they won the thirty five championship, right? So that's what I'm saying is that is that they've now this is another overhaul that we haven't even talked about really until I been recently talking to. You I didn't even know this is a this is a third overhaul from thirty years that one, thirty, two, thirty, three, thirty, four, three, five, five years. This is the third major team overhaul that we're talking about property. The first one when he first took over the team nine hundred new guys the second one when he comes in Detroit now, we're talking about y'all thirteen new guys how. Many guys got left behind fourteen dollars reports. But yeah. So that's thirteen guys that he's got to bring for that for the thirty four team and then going into into a thirty five, nine new guys, I mean this twenty five man roster. That's what I'm saying potsy knows what he's doing. Everybody kept his core stars in place..

"The team was about to completely fall apart like they were like we're not making any money potentially GonNa get mangled on the field you know what we're not getting paid for potentially getting mangled. A lot of these guys are great. They could go to other teams potentially. So that's in. So potsy, this is where really the labels have. Also the genius of George Clarke Because Potsy keeps this group together I mean he didn't still such like they. They call it a in a spirit decor whereas these players are you know they feel like if I'm not gonNA play for Potsy, enough I'm not gonNA play with these guys that I consider my brothers then I'm not even gonNA play it's not it's just not. It's you know it was fun while it lasted but if I'm not playing with these guys that I'm not playing anywhere. So that was the first thing the second thing was that he was able to not only create that but also to keep them from just completely saying okay I'm done you know like I'm not playing for anybody else but I'm also not playing for you 'cause I'm not getting paid. Also. So. Like he was able to say you know you're not getting paid I know that this socks or whatever but we are but you know we signed on to play this these fans are counting on you. You know what fans we do have you know counting on us in Seoul. We get. You know how you know we can't just abandon our organization. You know what I mean. Let's go out. You know like winning some games and stuff and saw they did and he kept this team together. They played the entire season like the last few games that even get paid and saw but but nonetheless, the writing is on the wall that this is for the Portsmouth. SPARTANS. And now comes nineteen, thirty four in. This is where we're really WANNA. Go with this episode is focused on one thousand, four at thirty four is when we make tiger make the move that tie Mickey Cochrane comes Detroit, all of a sudden things start to look you know start a pop off in Detroit Tigers, and of course, baseball season comes SHERP four boys of summer they're exactly. So summer is rock and Indie. In the Detroit. Detroit in the nineteen, thirty three was this like you know great depression ravaged area. The Tigers are terrible. There's not there's really no sports to to to get into. Religious Garwood is the only big sports name the Tigers are absolutely dreadful but in one thousand, nine, thousand, four, everything changes. The Tigers are awesome. You know the the they're coming out of the gate with Mickey Cochrane they got all this swagger and sold. There's so there's a radio, the WJR radio owner George. Richards. Sees this. Sees this great thing you know the Tigers going crazy and then at some point I wrote it in the screenplay where he basically. I can't attest to the veracity of this but the idea was that he knew he sees that the that the Portsmouth spartans this great team. Are Folding. And so this is a great team. And he gets aside this this idea what if we transplant this team to Detroit and they're they're competitive on the field just like just like the Tigers, are right on it. You know maybe this is the NFL failed at least three times prior to this sometimes, you see the number four, but it's like a franchise that was like the same franchise but they failed at least three times prior to this to establish an NFL team in Detroit and saw here we are like the these are the great the times they failed was in the roaring twenties, and so here we are in the Great Depression and here's an opportunity they're looking at going. Well. If we can. If we can bring the straight team here if we can associate them with the Tigers. Then we might be onto something able to establish an NFL team and I got a radio station that we broadcast the Games and that was the genesis and so when the to the lions. I did you put that? You have that photo that one with the the lion jumping over the through the hoop? Yeah. There we go. That is the newspaper. Maybe we can see if somebody's listening to it. What we have on the screen is a is a newspaper from the Detroit Times where it's it's a cartoon picture of a lion jumping over a value. Yeah. He's jumping over a goalpost and George Richards is A. Cartoon Picture of George Richards Holding up a plate showing the New York giants first game of versus versus Lions on September twenty third I'm so but anyways so I also be it's too small. Even read if you do if you can't see it on the screen. So I'm GonNa read. So I wanna read the quote that is up on top of the article so you can get a a sort of a better idea. So here is. So George Richards was who who, again, he's the owner of the WGN radio okay okay. Yeah. All right. That's funny. I was just I was on a call today. Right with because I work at the local pop station here Detroit and ninety, six three to DVD. We're owned by Cumulus and and our sisters as in Wjr. Yeah. upstairs, and so we were all I was on the Mitch Albom and Paul Smith and Frank Beckmann Sandler all. In a in a big zoom today which album he looks like Al Pacino. I'm like Mitch. He's not kidding I. I didn't say Paul W Smith actually said Look Porn Moustache. I got. A lot of these. It's interesting because a lot of these things that exist today. Yeah. They have some you know. This station. All the same and all this stuff you know like the movie you show that clay ball that stuff dates and you've got the Fisher Body Company is putting out the first. MLB movie with sound all these different things I mean there's connections with the past that are you know? More than just a lot of the story is the roots of. Of of these institutions that are in Detroit to this day. But so anyway. So here's the quote. So this this article comes out the came out July twenty second nineteen, thirty four at this exact moment, the Tigers were two games. The Tigers had a to gain there in first place and they had a two game lead over the New York Yankees there in first place. So this this is the the exact amount. So this article that there's a little bit the first. The first paragraph. So so you can see if you can't see their other says, program team here is named the Detroit Lions. So this is the article introduces the arrival of the Detroit lions in the very first viewers by Bert Walker for the Sunday Sunday Detroit Sunday. Times. So inspired by the spirited fight, the Detroit Tigers are making for the American League Baseball Championship sponsors of the Detroit Professional football team decided to call their entry to the national. Football League the Detroit Lions. Call this team the Tigers perhaps, but that might create confusion. The lion is the monarch of the jungle said site Houston Vice President, general manager of the team, and we hope to be monarch of the league it our ambition to make the lion as famous as the as the Detroit Ball Club has made the tiger. So so there can be absolutely no doubt based on this quote that the name Detroit Lions was based on the idea of the Tigers in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four there can be no debate. and. So that's what I'm saying like the tie, the lions arrival of the city you know they're they're associating with this Detroit Tiger France. Why would you not? Co op too..

"Mackinac island. Great friends. I was actually on your website W Detroit city champions, Dot Com. There's a lot of information out there You know the previous podcasts this shows that you guys have had to go back to the beginning of you know this, the venture that you guys are on no I'm actually starting what I've been sitting here for every single one of them but I find myself going back to episode one and relearning because just so much information that you guys are. It really is there's so much and. We have you know the I think the actually the first few episodes we did go a little bit of warp speed through some of the stuff, but we will come back for just feel to. Take, our time and go through it. And there's there's so many different branches off that. We can take to talk about these other teams, the Chicago bears. Yeah, all this different stuff like we're gonNA. Mention this guy named cliff battles for the Boston Red Sox. His. Now as though you with the Washington redskins back, it was a Boston and he's got his name's GonNa come up. But there's guys like cliff battles that nobody's ever heard of listen was named cliff battles. Like. The Great. He's like a tremendous running backup power speed runner like. His name is battle like nobody's ever heard of them said, there's so many different off the topics that we can do off. But that's why I like about the screenplay for the movie too is that you know I wrote the screenplay for the movie is like a Netflix's nine part mini series and there's so many like like I wrote it. So to introduce all these different or not all but a ton of different. Characters that the lions and the Tigers everybody had to face for towards the idea of potentially imagine an entire series were like the first. The first season is the city, a champion story, and then you meet all these different carriers Babe Ruth Lou gehrig. Bronco Gerski, all these different degree bay packers of this time and then you start doing offshoot episodes maybe a one off episode maybe a three part episode whatever it is and and you focus on all these just various topics from sports history I. Just think it would be like the coolest show like you know like a period piece set in that time. Those are some of the most some of the biggest sports movies ever are the ones that like conjure nostalgia. Look back like this was we're going to get to the center Cinderella Story Yeah. The Cinderella is another thing. Nineteen thousand five hundred million dollar Hollywood yes. Just one thing like imagine entire series and that's what. I'm saying like there's so much different stuff. So we're here we were. We were with the spartans in Portsmouth. And they're they're taking names and kicking some but yeah. thirty, three, thirty. So thirty one potsy takes over the spas and they and they brings in nineteen new guy. Yeah, and so we completely cuts with thirty guys also roster through the big. I've never heard a ten then reduce reduce the roster. Twenty six, twenty seven, and then and then brought in nineteen new players, and then it was talking about nine guys ended up going with the team in one, thousand, nine, thirty, four when they became the lions and then it was another i. think it was five. Backup I think it was five that that was with them in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five when they won the championship. So it was a major overhaul. In nineteen, thirty, one when he first takes over his first head coaching job professional any completely guts this team completely revamps it and then hits on all these stars that became like I mean literally like the central components of these teams I mean for the next you know however many years. So the Tigers win the pennant in nineteen thirty four. Yeah. But that's a little bit the head of where we're we're we're we're starting out with this story. Okay. All right. So I didn't know if that was. All right. So that's still for that. Where we come in tonight. So nineteen thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one potsy takes over the spartans and immediately the team becomes awesome. Yeah, it's. thirty two we talked about last week show they were in the nineteen th the first. NFL. Championship game. A hockey. Arena. PORTSMITH SPURT SMART. Data. Yes. So Important in the Portsmouth was like you know early NFL history was a lot of smaller. You know is really a lot of Ohio mid Western type you know million in all these different towns in. Ohio. Also, like you know your small towns like Green Bay, it wasn't like nowadays. It's like all big cities New York and Boston all this but but back then like. It was like a lot of smaller towns in Green Bay is a residual of that the last city that was from that era of like smaller towns that but they were just so successful they really built up a file like a cult following their. Butts. And it's crazy because if you actually look at the populations of NFL cities like you'd look at the list, it's like seven million we all like. Their population I don't even know what it is in Green Bay it's like I. Think it's like eight thousand and okay like really small. But every other lists like seven, million, six, million, three, five. Six thousand and then the but then you look at their the crazy thing is their attendance per game. It's like been sold out for any game all eight, thousand, eight, hundred, thousand, those people at the stadium but. Around Game. Every. Every year for like I, think since the sixties in the Season tickets are impossible anyways. So yeah, nineteen thirty, nine, hundred, thirty, one positive over the SPARTANS. And they'd take they become awesome in the nineteen, thirty two, the SPARTANS. Go to the NFL championship that First Nfl Championship game which leads to massive changes in the NFL because the NFL's. Who have so that they can have a championship game every money money money. Exactly. So it had like a world series of football so to speak. The NFL champion numerous new rules come into play as a result of that racketed gov. you can just look back at the last episode GonNa see all the different rule changes again of it, but it was a significant thing to happen and then in nineteen thirty three. the spartans were good but the but the problem was is that their best player Dutch Clark and again Dutch, Clark was the elite of the elite Nfl I mean he was one of the main guys posse discovered in nineteen thirty one. Potsy. Sorry. Dutch Clark was like I mean, he wasn't a PA-. Whereas Bronco Gerski was like sort of like Shaquille O'Neal of the football that time like he was just in like unstoppable power like they nobody could not tackling one on one. Just he was just overwhelmingly powerful type of player, but Dutch was like incredibly fast shifty smart. He was he was like the they acquitted him like Napoleon on the field like absolute. Just a brilliant field general just increase just incredibly smart on the field like. He was Dutch was elite in like I mean he wasn't powerful at all. But again, in every other way, he was an elite player and so So anyway. So that's what soul. The core player on the spartans and with the you know with numerous other great players of course but. But what happened was is that at the end of nineteen, thirty, two Dutch got this job to go be a coach yeah, Colorado College and then. When he was when they went to the NFL championship game, which again was like an impromptu game, then the college wouldn't release him from his contract and so he couldn't make it back to the spartans got beat and then the following year nineteen thirty-three, he did not come back for the season. With the SPARTANS. So without Dutch, the teams basically dropped, they still finished in second place, which was very, very competitive. In fact, there Glenn Press. Now, who was you call them really their second best player. Glenn Press now was there became their number one guy and led the League in scoring was like I'm just you know he you know he did what he could been dispersed finished in second place but so anyways. So Ninety, but nineteen thirty three is the final is really the death knell of the Portsmouth spartans because the city it's again one of these smaller towns and the Great Depression had absolutely ravaged Tom the city. So badly that again, they were just there basically exchanging shares of stock for two two players, not even exchanging giving shares of stock in lieu of payment to these players in shares of stock are might be nice for the future but but you know you can't eat shares of. Stock To Pay Your bills you can try try put them in your shoes. where? Share stock for yeah. For my pillow and I really six two. So. anyways. So this soul. There's a there's I have a quote in the book that talks about this and I wrote this whole scene in the movie the scene at this scene in the movie really is the introduction to the lions in the in the in the in the screen player in this movie is this.

"Okay. He stays in Colorado as a as as as a coach. and. So he So Without Dodge Clark, the team is nowhere near as good right and so but I, mean Glenn Press now we mentioned his name and he's going to be another critical name tour to understand in this. in this story, especially with the birth of the lines and all this was he. He's one of the guys that picked the colors for the lions. For. Their Jersey colors but Glenn Personnel Glenn press now became was like their number one guy in nineteen thirty three in the Park Support Smith was still competitive I mean they finished with a six five record second place to the bears in nineteen thirty three. Press led the League in scoring that year I mean, he was a great player personnel was a that's one of the sad elements of this entire story is just how you know Dutch. Clark was such a big on name in his time that in that's kind of how I that's that was the character that I wrote into the screenplay between Glen personnel that really the one of the main character arcs of the entire Detroit lions story in the screenplay is this is how does Clark was this like reluctant hero like he didn't like he was retired retired like every year like even all the way as Lionsgate you're like every year I'm done retired and part positive Luhrmann permanent come on dot your. One more year. One more year it was always having a lure dot. Okay and I really WanNa play and then he come on the field like the greatest player. You know it's and. Then, Glenn Press now was like always there for potsy like Mr. reliable played every game. Like was the Dutch. Left the team. Glenn Personnel leads that you know he's the now the new leader of the team leads them to a six five record. Second place, and so you know he wanted to be the guy he was always and he was one of the best players in the team but he just wasn't as good like really wasn't that next level elite like dodge he was always in the shadow of Dutch and that's the story I haven't. So he was a guy that wanted to be like sort of the guy that's at least how I wrote the character arc and the the the to the sort of dichotomy between those two. DOTS like didn't even really want the fame and glory. He just kind of like playing the game and then press now love playing the game as well. But they but he was like you know it constantly in Duchess shadow no matter what happened in like you know without he knew that without Dutch they weren't anywhere near as good. But you know he wanted to be the guy at the same point which is to enable both starting quarterbacks because back. Then you again we play ironman football, but you still have to be in this time you had you they played a single wing offense you'd have three running backs and then. Another player split out. So it was like really four running backs. And so on and so a lot of times what happened is that Glenn? Press L. was the starting starting back he would. He would start the game. Okay. Excuse me and then So he would start the game and then he would play do his thing in potsy with sit back and watch to see how the defense was reacting to his game plan. Once he had the defense measured, he would replace Glenn Press now with Dutch and Dutch with. Dutch. Polian when he once he got out there possibly like this is what you want have that guy is know that right cornerback is just terrible target that guy all day you know. So he would give Dutch like a sort of a directional thing and then dust once he got out there would just be poetry in motion you know and so then they know they were playing the same time Hammond Glenn personnel play the same time but anyways, nineteen, thirty, three, they did not have Dutch Clark and team would. you know the team would finish second place. The bears would go on to answer your question at the bears go on to beat the giants in the next NFL champ okay. Thank you for that. Yes. So it now so the League is split in half in pairs would beat the giants in that. The next actual purposeful NFL championship game. Yeah in A. If you look at the records from nineteen, thirty two, you'll notice that the record you because what happens is that even though it was a championship game between the two of them, usually that doesn't factor into the regular season standings in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, it did. It was really just looked at it. It's like an extra game. Okay. So that game factored into the the overall season records of both teams. That's why it's not the not tied in the when you look at nineteen thirty two. Okay. So on but anyways. So nineteen, thirty, three, the team falters in at this point At this point, the team is absolutely destitute like they have not like not like they have. They don't have the money to pay their players. Dutch didn't come back because he knew he has a solid job in Colorado. When he was in when he was in portions, there's a quote in the book where which is actually from another guy's book. We're actually says. He actually says the the the last one to get to the bank to get their check cashed usually was the odd man out there wasn't enough money to cover their jokes like so they would get a paycheck and they would all scramble to get paid. That's how the situation became. You know in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, two, and thirty, three in Portsmouth was it was eventually they started issuing shares the team to the players, which is like now you're starting to head down down the best when you're like Oh, we don't have any money today, but this is just as good as money like Shera team that anyone. Like. This is just as good as money. But so that was what was happening in and it just it really the last couple of game. This is an example of this policy Clark in this situation is that potsy is like really the is keeping this team together like he's like I. Know You're not getting paid I, know you're not getting paid I know like we have no money I know you're getting paid in shares of stock but. You know you signed on to be with this team you signed on to play. You know to be on this. We've got like three games laughter two games laughed, and he's like. All walk away. You know we can't just walk away. There's a I've got a quote in the book that talks about this where he's like where he's actually saying. You know we did you want to just walk away. Just GonNa leave the season hanging with just abandon the last two games of the year like this might be the last time you ever play anyway as a professional you signed as you signed on the xactly finish out your exactly. Yeah. So he so potsy was the guy that really like saying like he kept his team, you know they're like. You, know I'm going to go sign with another team or something in policy was like, no, you know this is so it'd be He created this like a love. The word spirit decor. This. This psalm, the sense like I think that's an element. That's. Not. Missing, today's professional game boy. It's a lot of cases you know it's because of the mercenary like nature of of the current sports world a lot of like one of the things that used to be I mean that's how it be sports just used to be across the board was that you would build up a team and these guys it's almost like..

"Then it can be incredibly sloppy as evidenced by this game which I saw this factor when I was kind of looking up some some of the elements, this game eight interceptions, only five completions in this game. Ugly so it could be somebody's games when you're. Trying to pass could be ugly. Put up some really ugly numbers. But in this case, the touchdown on counts and then the bears would get a a safety on the spartans for two points and then they would win the game nine did nothing. Yeah so that I championship game goes to the bears but within the within this some. So what you know that that controversial play, what's interesting is another concept born because the NFL It must have been a really thrilling moment I mean, you can imagine we set the stage fourth quarter sure and goal now in the bears complete this touchdown red grange in. So the NFL leaders at that moment must have really must have been a really cool moment because they changed the rules that for the very next season that a team from now on only had to be behind the line of scrimmage. You didn't have to be five years back like that play triggered this changes rules or Halas had saw. George Halas had so much sway that he changed the rules so that it wouldn't look so bad. You know that they have broken the rules to get the biggest score of the game, but I think it's the latter they recognize the value of. Of Not Having to sit there and measure out to yards behind the line or whatever it was. Just the natural things is behind the line because opens up scoring way more if they can throw from anywhere behind this one, thousand, nine, thirty, two, thirty, two, thirty, two. Yeah, and so the other result that came out of this game was was that the was the success of this. The fact that they drawn eleven thousand fans for this was this was a massive payday for everybody involved that money was probably the number one. Concern no matter what was going on ready to minutes time. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway so what came out of this was the NFL then broke up the league into two pieces it became the east and the West. Okay. So every year thereafter, there would be an NFL, championship game play. Okay. Every year thereafter. So the first game, the first championship, which was sort of a an almost accident came about as an accident as a result of these teams tying became an institution and eventually became the Super Bowl way that we know today. So that's why I say it's almost as important story just for I mean whether you're talking about the the lions or what so the but this is important. So wordsmith Spartan Clark is I wanted to the fan one side of the field and the party Clarkin. The spartans are one Cya and then George Halas and the bears are in the other and so but there's one other thing that comes out this game really why I run into focus on this little bit yeah. Yeah. So I gotta I gotTa get to page while you while you're fine and that Mike Mike Frazier Yeah my said Hey, great stuff and Mary. Mary Tom Tom Tomlin is becoming a regular she. Said Great Chart. Great Job Charles. Washing. Yeah. Definitely. Everybody who's watching. Would love it like lots people tuned in through the PODCAST, Detroit pages and the Detroit City, a champion, a watch party on page as well. So. Thank, you Matt Fox met Fox. Killing it on the on the boards and I'm just pushing your buttons. Jamie dealing love it. So so there's one of the things that comes out of the game and I wanted to actually read the quote because it's kind of a rare. Thing you don't really see too many other many places. Yeah and so this quote comes from a book called monster of the Midway on Bronco Nagorski by gym dance. So it's more of a Ma I. wish the year in Downer here but when the book was published but but anyways, it comes from his book and a quote that says. talking about the championship game and it's just to give you a framework. So so when you're going to hear the word Guitao Sqi and this is ace, his name is ace guitar. Okay Ace scatology was one of the best running backs like in their history I mean like. Early history. He was like he was kind of the Lai the he would eventually become. He was the spartans in the Lions version of Bronco Nagorski. Okay. But not as not as physically terrifying was with You know he wasn't. You know he was he was your bruising running back blockers so to speak. But he wasn't any else play defense was a great defender on butts an as catalyses like one of my favorite players and plus his name is ace like how cool you? Case. She played for today. Saying like you know how cool do you have to be your nickname is as I just got the one time you've always got, but that's all you need. One, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty s so anyways. So, that's where you're going to hear about the story of an involving as guitar. All right potsy Clarke, and George Halas, and so in one thousand, thirty, two. AC says, nine, hundred, Eighty, two, Guitar Ski was tripped by Coaching Legend George Halas a championship game against the bears with the bears leading in four minutes left in the Game Guitar took a handoff and began returning the ball on the sideline Jala stuck out his foot and tripped Gutowski ran pass the ball. The officials didn't notice but Portsmouth coach Potsy Clark went off like a Roman candle and told Halas he was playing the game under protest helps reportedly responded by yelling protests this while saluting Clark with his Middle Finger. On something. That's one other thing that comes out of this game I mean, there wasn't a rivalry already Georgia's a tanker. This is taking a little bit later battle I think this is. Fifties picture holderness because he was. He, looks tanker. That's why we picked. Kinda shows it Kinda Show I. Think it captures the way that I that I picture. That he was like intense. Character Yes. So that really I if the rivalry between policy Clark in the SPARTANS had not been born prior to this game, right? It's certainly that incident right there. Certainly what did not like didn't didn't reduce the the. Any especially, the fact that got beat in this championship game. So. So anyways, yes really to summer to sum up. You know what we're a little bit. We were talking last week and then what we're talking about this week. Is this is that you've got to burgeoning. Hot briberies with the Green Bay Packers in Chicago bears with this very specific team, the Portsmouth spartans with these players with Patsy Clark between all, there's there's this whole..

"I mean, let's like arena but this is the beginning of NFL championship game. So is even bigger. This is as big as it gets in Seoul. PLAY INDOOR THEY WANNA play indoors. Right. For for this game in the SPARTANS agreed to plan is Chicago because there's way more money to be made in Chicago was to be made in Portsmouth and so. The game would end up drawing eleven thousand fans. That beats the four thousand. Big Time. And so anyways. So they sold but the problem is a huge problem with this game is that the is that you're planning an ice arena rather than a full on football field one hundred yards long. So the dimensions the dimensions people talk about the different dimensions, a lot of different. A lot of different dimensions it ranges by a few feet for different descriptions. So I'm just GONNA. Go you go with. Know, sort of the sort of overall s the ones I've found is you know the the most ones that kind of agree with each other is that the is that the overall length of the of the of the arena where they play the playing surface was was eighty feet long in that there is ten feet marked on end zone in. So the actual playing service was sixty feet are absurd. Now sixty fifty, sixty yards know instead of one hundred yard football field was sixty, and so in a sixty sotos basically sixty feet wide by by forty five, yard I'm sorry sixty feet long by forty five yards. Wide Can. You even imagine today. Variants like that. I mean because you had like inflate gate you know and it was like all the balls weren't inflator. There's so many rules and just hyper sensitive to everything that rules can you imagine? It's like, Oh, well, you know because of Covid or some reason they have to play a game in in in something that is is less than just like unsanitised. somethings like like yeah. It's like some rule you know or was like Oh. Yeah. You can't You know have balls and I just whatever I. It's just how that how that would play today in today's world because you know playing with a field that's like you know cut it just it's amazing that they did it and. That, Kinda showed how they were Ironman we're playing we're going. Yeah. This we're GONNA make. This is the NFL The NFL was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred twenty. So at this point, the really the League is only twelve years old. Yeah. So it's really still in its in its infancy roll with it. Yeah, for sure. They're making it up as they also shack was the you know the the paycheck for something like this was huge teams needed expressing the mill the great depression right. This is you know this is a big potential payday soldier on other rules that went into the plane in this song reduce is say sixty, sixty yard playing surface long in forty five yards wide. In the normal service wide fifty, fifty yards. And so so also besides that So in order to in order to. Sort of rectify that you know to to adjust for this. So every time a team cross midfield with the ball automatically brought back twenty yards. Okay to compensate for the shortness of the field, right right and then in. So also what it never happened in the NFL prior to this was the they have these called. Hash. Marks on the football field, right? Yeah and so the Hash marks a Lotta Times you saw the way it works is Whenever a ball at the ball goes to the left of the field or the right of the field. The way it is now is the ball is brought to those Hash marks? To to to center the ball in the middle of the field more where back in that these days those there was no ashmore. So if you went out of bounds if you if you're if the player went out of bounds, then the place started like literally like great near Audubon Oh you play a lot of times. The team would have to use up a play to just to reorient just to get more to the center of the field right? Right. That's your center on the edge and everybody likes off to. Virtually. What would have to happen? Yeah would be right next to them and out of our soul. Yes. In this case, they've made those Hash marks just so that they knew you know because you couldn't be that close to the board Sir like that all those Hash marks recreated to keep keep the players away from the boards. And then we're going to see in the second like that's one of the rules that because of this game, that's what ended up sticking like literally, it became a permanent rule change because it worked out so well because his first championship game. Sold so there's that I did not know that. Yeah few few few do so anyways Yeah, and so then also the goal posts that were originally in the back of the end zone and like the very limited you know the back end of the field they were actually brought out to the goal line for this game. Okay. So make it easier for kickers to to score and increase the point scoring in that was another fix that was made permanent. Those game. Okay. was was was that and then What else do I hear So yes. Oh yes. Those are to a massive massive much changes to the Games. So anyway. So the so the game itself was a defensive battle for the first three quarters of the game. Okay. All right zero zero. One thing. So going into this game so the so both teams are among the top winning percentage in league but the but the Portsmouth spartans elite number one player we've mentioned his name. A couple of times is a guy named Dutch Clark and so does Clark is an elite hit like he is one of the best players in the NFL like one of the top two or three best players and Conversely on the other side of the Chicago. Bears, have Bronco Gerski. And just by his name alone rock I like this guy there's some videos that may we can get to another episode. Showing Brock Gerski is like the the nearest way that I can describe him because I've seen a ton of videos on. Brooklyn Gerski. was like Shaquille O'Neal of the a football. That's why I described like Shaquille O'Neal basketball was like overpowering lately physical dominant like you could never like block a shot you know shot from shack you'd break your arm we tried to block one of his shots likewise with bronchoscopy physically could not tackle him by yourself. If you attempted to tackle Broncos Gerski by yourself, you'd end up with literally broken ball. What what was his height his weight? Off the top of my head. I think he was like you know. Take a look man it was like he was just a monster when you see a picture of Ryan scam his shirt off I mean this guy like especially in the one, thousand, nine, hundred see a lot of these other players that are that are ironman football. So they're they're all they're all like super athletes. chiseled but they're bite by comparing him to NFL players today they're nowhere near as like Balkin all their back then they were just like elite athletes. And Salt, but Bronco was like this monster. Tank he looks kind of like Tarzan Christians from the lions but he's even bigger than like he's Weiner's he's wider than Tarzan Christianson. He was six foot two, two, hundred and twenty six stacked..

Introduce you to the Lions is is Patsy Clark. He's We we label the episode of Forgotten Genius of George Clark. Baz. We were talking about the last episode. He can easily be. Called the the the father of the Detroit Lions. and he was to the lions what. What Frank Naven and Mickey Cochran sort of a combination of Frank Naven. In Mickey Cochran were you like as far as a central figure in the story? to the lions to you know to to this to this lions team I mean he's just as he's a critical figure to understand in order to understand where the lions came from the team that that came that that became the lions and in in how they began holiday one that nineteen thirty, five, NFL championship it's essential to understand about patsy Clark. So yeah, because I didn't know. He was no longer a player right because I was like to to Mickey Cochrane. player-manager potsy ended his career During the World War World War, one yeah, we're. One. The American Expeditionary Force? Champions. Yeah. Yeah Yeah but he was more house on the field. He was He was he was just a just. Yeah I. Just I mean every we went down the list last. Yeah. Last episode just like every single team mean from High School College I mean everything he went through they were like undefeated season undefeated season and he was the star of every team. He went. You know he played on and I guess you're bound to pick up a few things. By undefeated season after undefeated season. Yeah. So we we talked about like where he came from playing for the University of Illinois the AF champion trainer one. And then we got into. How he came to the Portsmouth spartans in. Nineteen, thirty-one. All right. So where where do we go with potsy? Where do we go with potsy next? Where did we leave off? Exactly? Well, we left off at the nineteen thirty, two NFL championship. Okay and saw Yup. That's right because it was that was the very first NFL championship exactly in for for as far as the records are concerned and this, this is what I mean. This story in itself is really that you know an worthy of the episode whether you're alliance fan or not. Because I'm just the story of how the first NFL championship came to be is very, very cool because there wasn't they didn't have an NFL championship game. Championship finished with the Best Record won the NFL championship. Okay. Okay. But at the end of one, thousand, nine, hundred at the end of nineteen, thirty, two, one up happening was. The Green. Bay Packers. This is this is the season. For viewers saw the last show the lions. The Portsmouth Spartans beat the beat the packers. In the IRONMAN game we're all we're their players were there eleven players played the entire sixty minutes of the game. And that was posse Clark in his in there it was. You know this is this is this budding rivalry with the packers that one of the things originates One of the reasons for this rivalry originates at the end of nineteen thirty one when the packers had declined to play the spartans and basically won the championship because they didn't even need to face the spartans to do rats exactly and so the you know this animosity grows in for whatever reason the next season. Potsy. Makes this declaration to curly Lambeau. The packers. That That they're gonNA the next time they play him they're GONNA only use. Men and that they're going to in that, they're going to beat them. Yeah. Listen see really guys smokey smokey on the field that's what and that's what he did. The spartans did they were that town that they could play eleven guys and beat the packers and then the game that they beat them in one thousand, nine, hundred in nineteen thirty two was the one that basely knocked them out of the championship running and so it what's Interesting is that the packers had had won ten games that year? And I believe you WANNA look. The the SPARTANS had six wins I believe. I think there were six I think there were six and five but they they had a bunch of ties and ties didn't count for any didn't come for anything. and. So what ended up happening was is that even though the packers way more wins the the Spartans in the bears tied for first place just because of a winning percentage at the end of the season and sold in order to decide who would win the championship they had to play like a one one more playoff game. So to speak okay and then the NFL it actually been looking for a way to have sort of a world series of football world series was so popular in baseball. And saw this was a natural result of that is to say, well, let's have a playoff. Game the only problem was is that. The is that there was it was later in the season there was these massive snowstorms ripping through the Midwest The, the game, the previous game in Chicago and they played at, Wrigley? Field. The previous game it only drawn four thousand fans to in Chicago, the previous bears game, and so this is now a week ago few weeks later, whatever it was after that last game, it was the weather was was way worse because they already been cold and now they're saying, well, you know we have this could be a chance for serious moneymaker. This could be a real big moneymaker so. If we have it outdoors in a blizzard. WHO's GONNA come to this? So they decided to. Play in when I say they, I mean George Halas. Who was the owner in Ma- owner coach of the Chicago bears they decided. Let's play an indoor game at Chicago Stadium, which was the home of the Blackhawks. Ice Arena that they're does. Yeah. So it's the this is so you're telling me the story of the beginning of Arena football..

"This is the beginning of that. Sort of rivalry with them. So anyways yeah. So this is really again this these players on this team. This is where their hatred of Green Bay starts saying they're like come on. So you know the guy who's run this team has A. Familiar name named a lot of people that movie football fans curly Lambeau Lambofield is named Africa. So he's the he's the coach. He's you know he's the coach at this time, and this is where the animosity with potsy Clarkin him begins with with with curly Lambeau. and. So anyways. Yeah. So So. So that's also the thirty one portsmouth spartans totally jobbed out of this championship man. So anyways. So that's this whole. So going into the into the next year. So going into this next next year. Now they're like, they want revenge. They're like we're going to beat the. We're going to beat the packers in, knocked them out or whatever. And so. They actually they get the revenge in spectacular fat Oh. Okay. This is this is this is so cool. So. So so this next year they. The at one point, the packers actually having a great year. They're having this fantastic year in the in the spartans of tied I think like two or three times. Record, on. So they tied like two or three times. But at the time a tie didn't count for anything. It was like basically the game never happened. So they like two or three is what happened in though was that there was another incident that that led to potsy getting even more angry with curly Lambeau and he tells them he tells he tells curly Lambeau. He says next time we play you we're gonNA play you with only eleven guys we're going to beat you with only eleven guys. We're going to beat you what he's like I. don't even know there's always different. mythologies. Talks about what happened or whatever. About what happened is know that not only what led to that to that incident but also His, why he would say that, right? It must have been just something that. Must have been something I don't know what exactly it was but but he said he led him to say the next time we play we're going to beat you with only eleven guys in. So the next time they did plan was against thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two day playing with only eleven guys in they beat them to the second bus not show up or something I. Don't know what was the status thing is something that. been trying to say is I don't know what would lead him for that specific. Like saying goes a lot of things you could say we're going to beat you. We're GONNA just heck out of you. We're going to beat the tar out of you what what would lead him to say we're going to beat you with only eleven guy I don't know what you know like why what that would mean maybe it meant maybe maybe he was criticized for doing like a couple too many substitution ends or something like this. Okay. But but that's the only reason. Know I mean there's got to be like a motivating factor for why he would say that and then also why he would live up to that ball St- because he because there's a great quote in here. That's. That they actually talks about it. That they actually say. we were going into the locker the I think it was Clark and he says. You know we. Glenn personnel says, he says that the prior to the game potsy tells them you eleven men are going to beat the packers today. And he goes in the only way you're coming off the field is on a stretcher only the only way you're you're it's all just you eleven and he sends out there and they beat them. I think it was nine nothing. I got a double check the score it was like Nah I. Think it was like nine nothing. have food poisoning or something not like say don't. Know, he said it intentionally. Beat them for there was some motivating factor that led him to say we're going to beat you with only our lab with these eleven guys and they did and they did, and so this team became known as the iron man. Okay. The ironman because they want an entire won an NFL game with only eleven against one of the strongest. There the iron man from here on out these are these iron man. These guys are the ones that are going to end. We're still in Ohio. Yeah. So we're still in Portsmouth would eventually go on to become these guys would go onto become lions and all that. So this is the team that we're the Detroit's about going to get in a few years. So now now potsy, he's he's just the coach and the manager, right? So he's not playing anymore. So that last game in the AF, we'll one that was that was his last playing the game. And he's a small guy. Yeah. He's yeah. That picture we saw that picture a couple of minutes ago and he's a he's a smaller dude, but he sounds like it just like domino. His gangly there compared to those other guys and he won everywhere he went. But in football, you doesn't necessarily mean you have to be the biggest I mean. To to to boss around that into to to get that message out there. Yeah. But I think a lot of times, these coaches that had these exceptional playing careers like that. Just your mere presence carries a little bit of weight because because anybody that you know if your guy that's one I mean look at the list, we went through the list of all these championships undefeated seasons. Literally I mean you could I mean I think it's every single year. It was an undefeated season for every single team. He played for I mean literally down the year year by year, and it was like every single like undefeated season undefeated season under view Western Championship. Oh this was a tie for Western Championship. It's like it's insect sensational. Guy Like that carries that kind of gravity. When he walks in like I've won championships every year my life you know what I mean and his very first season with Portsmouth they they rock. Out. Thirty one and this is a this is all of a sudden. They love this guy they bought in the very first year you overhauls he cuts what we say twenty guys. Thirty guys, he cuts thirty guys in his first year. They're the toughest team in the NFL the packers have to pull the US some dirty trick just to get out just to slink out of where with an NFL championship like that's what he's lead. So this is a guy that I, mean, there's Santen to this guy I mean look at home. So. anyways. So nine, hundred, thirty, two, sweet beats, the packers, the iron man gain they beat the packers and saw the. So this sets up a situation even though the packet packers had one way more games, I forgot the record buddy and we can look it up on the line but so it sets up a situation where. The The. Despite. The fact that they haven't dramatically. Far. Fewer wins than the than the packers, the numerous ties that they had had. Put them in first place by a fraction by the tiniest fraction of a percentage point and so what happened was is that the Chicago bears also they had the same record is the lions. Okay. What that did was it set up the first NFL championship game. So if you're looking at right now and you're wondering why the records don't match look at the winning percentages. What happened in one thousand, thirty two is set the stage for. The first NFL? Championship. Yeah because it was a tiebreaker sure it. So the NFL for the longest time have been wanting their own version of a world series. Yeah, and so now they had it needed a tiebreaker game to to you know to decide who would win between the packer or between the spartans and the bears, and so at this moment, the season was there was an earlier. Than expected winter that was blown through the united. States. So they couldn't play that championship game They couldn't play the championship game outdoors in Seoul it. So they so they played in Chicago and they played any indoor in inside the Blackhawks ice arena. Oh, which as an ice arena smaller than a football field in Seoul they had small field they played. A small few I think it was..

"It really brought a lot of that college football which was already huge on brought that into the pro into pro football like. So that was really that was like I forgot what year that was it was it was. It was the mid nineteen, twenty s when rug range signed with the bears. So anyway so the pro football was began to evolve in popularity more stars joined the ranks in that. And then. One of the one of the things that began to evolve which really separated pro football especially in these earlier is on from from from anything really was is the increasing use of the forward pass okay. Okay. 'cause like if you're familiar with the Games, the viewers are familiar with the Games where you have. Rugby rugby is almost like a similar. With the forecast football and rugby are eerily similar. In the the four passes what really began to distinguish football. American football from anything else and saw the so one of the things. So there's a whole. If you look on Youtube, there's some great shows about the evolution of the football that was like one of the biggest things happen. Because originally the football if there's one great video you can search for it's actually got. I believe it's boomer Esiason, who was a former NFL. Superstar and boomer goals through he's he's like a great this former great quarterback and he uses all the original balls to demonstrate. How easy they were to throw is so some of these early nineteen, twenty balls, he's like man, this thing is like throwing a rock. Grow watermelon like some are so big. So anyways so the ball began to change to. Really to allow them to throw it easier. That was really the big thing. and. So I forgot I think it was right before nineteen thirty four is when is when the ball made is one of its biggest shifts in reductions in size almost it would almost be recognizable today in Seoul. The really the the Ford Pass really started to take off in this like really rate in this specific era. Like this is the era when four pass really started to take off the way that they would do. It was like nowadays, we have this like pocket passing recorder backdrops back in the line you know sort of back and forms A. Cup around him bully because we call it pocket to protect their quarterback to give a Max protection while you know Max, time to find the guy who wants to throw to and then throw it. Back in this time, passing was lot more along the lines of like misdirection like they would fake team out and then pitched the ball to another guy who was like sitting there. Now, he just throws like a quick a p- redesigned route like a guy already run into the spot where the ball's going to go. So it was more that was more along the lines of the way they did passing back in this back in this era. But it was, you know the the running game was essential run the ball continuously back in this area that was the idea. But one of the misconceptions that I really WANNA get out when talking about this especially on this line of thought. Is that it was like two yards and a cloud of dust like a lot of times you see these old black and white NFL games from or football games leather helmets. and. The players are just battle grind back and forth, and there's like you just see one guy carry the ball for like a yard and get tackled and you never see any action, and now like nothing could be further from the truth. It's the the NFL back then like. There was like even though it was a heavy reliance on the ground, game. There I mean. You wouldn't see these massive you know high. Scoring Games but there was plenty of offense there. Really was there I mean. There's i. mean the Lions are putting up points on people. There's. The games were It wasn't. The misconception I WANNA get across it wasn't I mean there had to be something to the game to continuously draw people to it in for this game to grow during this era saw. It wasn't as. Is. You know just because it wasn't the crazy aerial attacks we have now. Doesn't mean the game was necessarily like you know some boring slow contest or anything like this so. One more thing to kind kinda get across as far as football this era. which is really important to know is that nowadays football roster has Zone. Nowadays. Of Football. Rosser has was fifty three guys have written down fifty three. So you have fifty three guys on a team. Okay. Fifty three guys there's only. Any given time you you've only got eleven guys on the field at any given time So back, then your roster sizes are like twenty six guys. All right. So you know this is the show you've got twenty guys and there's only eleven people and feel like they're playing both sides of the ball. They're playing both sides of the ball I know that. Yeah both. An essence who called. Football they played a lot of it on there was a lot. So they would play both sides because we're actually. Limited substitution. You couldn't just trade players out every other play like they do today. You literally like had to play both sides of the ball in Seoul. Wasn't just a guy who could throw the ball. He had to be equally proficient running the ball. He had to be able to play defense. He plays safety like he had to cover like whatever position you played on the field you had to be able to cover your polar opposite on the other side that's really what it boils down to. So you'd be like one second you'd be running the ball and the next second you're trying to stop the Guy. So that was really you know it's it's just such an interesting dynamic. It's obviously doesn't exist like that today, but it's just such a cool thing like when we were kids playing grand playing football, we would play. That's all you do is play in your plan. You know when you're playing backyard football whatever and it's just such a cool game like I almost like wish that it was like that today because it's just such a cool. Thank you got guys in the field just battling out all day offense and defense, and it's saw anyways that's sort of like an overview. We've got a couple of people joining US Kevin. Startup a watch party Oh great heaven and then Ah Cabinet. With wish him happy birthday a couple of weeks ago. Jennifer hanging out as well. All right. Doing. Raider Jennifer Jenny saw. Yeah we. We're going to try to if you're you comment on here. To. Give you a little mentioned show. So thanks for certain up Washburn. Appreciate that receipt that and. So I had so little foundation there on on the football. So what we need to know, what do we need to know about the spartans or do we need all? There's so much to go with all that. So I just WANNA. Start like again like you know if you know wh, what are we were talking with the Detroit Tigers? We're there's two real luminaries that we focused on a lot in discussions with the Tigers, Frank Naven and make Cochran right those are the two that really got more airtime than anybody talked about in the Tigers section, and so in this case, the one person that's going to get probably more airtime than anyone is patsy Clark because there was like for like we we have the show introduction.

"This transforms the motor city into Detroit city of champion. Detroit city of. The podcast I'm Jamie Flanagan Charles Davison, and we are diving into a trilogy of books called Detroit City of champion champions talking a lot about the Tigers. In just pretty much. The Tigers launched things off kind of gave a big overview and then been doing a lot of tiger talk but today. I'm excited man I love nineteen, thirty, four, thirty, five lines. Right over the backboard. As a very up to. Happy days reference all it. Jumped jump the shark. That's a happy dance the when I saw a thing about the jump, the shark. Let's hope we don't ever jump the Shark Joni had a crush on potsy for a wild. Okay and He, he missed the free throw that he was so good. He shot at all the way over the backboard. Further give me more of that because I got. So. So so he was nervous for to date or something or like if it was shot that she was she was a little girl and she was just loving him from afar. Okay. And everybody was picking on him because he blew the shot and she's like she was like blown up it's like he was so good. He threw it over the back. But we're talking about a different potsy this time around. Yeah. I get where you're going with the posse from August you'll. Get you know it's up to. Most of what I say it's very little. No sin well. I'm the type that likes to process what somebody's saying understand what he's trying to get as if I don't, you're GonNa have your obtuseness is. Further explored warned of that. But Yeah. So we got. Episode Eleven it's Potsy. It's gotten genius of George. Clark yeah say I'm excited like. An, there's no way I I. I. Don't think we're GONNA get through the. There's no way we can get through all potsy in this first episode in this episode. We're GONNA. Take our time with him as A. Party Clark is an absolute. Legend in every sense of the word and he is probably like there's so much gotten stuff from this story. But really like I, say Detroit Sports in general I mean, we all such a at gratitude. Sure. Potsy. Clark. In really the overall nine, hundred, thirty, four, thousand, nine, hundred, five lions. The of all the of all this team's athletes. Components of this story right that are overlooked. It's the nineteen, thirty, four and nineteen thirty five Detroit Lions there. Virtually unknown I mean like they're you know the? What vague small references are to this team are just so obscure. Really, the only person that ever gets mentioned from this team is another is a guy named Dutch Clark. Okay. Who is no relation to Potsy who were going to discuss today but otherwise even in their day, the lions were overlooked. The lions were like I say it's almost like a tragedy because their story is so amazing. Wow. Okay. It's a it's like Whoa I mean it's just such an incredible story in the players behind it. What they had to go through all the stuff that led up to it is just it's literally could just make a movie on the Lions. which is why like putting them? All together is just such a tremendous story like Tigers Lions redwings all. The sports enthusiasm was building in Detroit because we're on fire. Fighters were the biggest thing out four and thirty five like you know they were the biggest thing. So it's not just a marketing ploy bringing this other team in here. Well, I don't WanNa. I don't think it was a marketing ploy. It was much. It was an opportunity. Okay. you because you have. Just the over of overview is, is that you have. A very talented football team in Portsmouth Ohio and and. But the, but the top Portsmith is kind of like Green Bay and the fact that it originally in football, you had these small towns that had these professional teams. And but Portsmouth was really hammered by the Great. Depression, and so even the miniscule salaries of these players were making this time was still not enough to support the players but they had a great team I mean this is one of the three best teams that you can say four teams because the really the best teams of this Era Green Bay Packers Chicago bears New York giants, and the Portsmouth spartans on the the top four teams and in fact if I was The top three exclude the giants, the giants good. Then the giants have you can overcome they won but. But the, but the Portsmouth was one of the three elite teams were always at the top the finals you know in the very final couple games at the end of the season to decide was the champion in that. But anyways, the heavy, very talented team and so here. So at the end of nineteen, thirty three, the team is completely broke. They're paying their players with with shares of stock in the team up there. In fact, their best player Dutch Clark had left the team because he is he was he had left at the end of nineteen, thirty, two on he was like he wasn't even there for their final season. That's how broke they were. Like they couldn't afford to pay him so. So anyways they. At, the end of Nineteen thirty-three, the team is disbanded and that's where the opportunity comes along with in nineteen thirty four where. where, the Tigers are just like you know exploding as we've already gone through on the city's going insane for the Tigers and there's this opportunity. To the NFL season opportunity. Detroit had failed three times.

Should we put on the hot seat? I A. I. Lizzy oh because I stands for artificial intelligence that means he's a robot and I love her about Albert. We'll go without a name right Shayla. What's your first question for out? What is the hardest thing in your job Actually I love my job so much that there is no hard part of it. I enjoy doing everything that's connected with it so there is nothing that's hard. Wow that's a great job certainly is what is your favorite part about. It ny shooting shooting the bow. The feeling that I get from shooting the bow and hitting the Bullseye is Is Unexplainable it's been. It's been with me for a long time and I get excited every day when I go into shoot. The other part is teaching the people how to shoot. It makes me feel like I'm sharing the love that I have of the sport with other people. Necessarily Theresa what would be a typical day for you in your job. Well it definitely starts with the healthy breakfast a big breakfast especially when I'm training. I'm eating a lot more than I would. When I'm not training what she does. Lots of biggles. Lots of fruit anyways. Yeah start with the big breakfast. And then I just go to the gym do a lot of weight training cardio work and then I go to the range and work with my coach and then in the afternoons my team joins me and I would say nice. Epsom salt bath at the end of the night. That sounds very nice. I just WANNA clarify like the piracy ate a lot. She worked out a lot so does WANNA do part of her job. How what is it dry fire in archery dry Faris? When you pull the bow back without an Arrow in the bow and let the string go all of the energy from the bogue goes back into the bow therefore causing damage to the bow or to the person that shooting. What about wet fire? That's done underwater. Oh Oh never let me do. Some underwater artery blazed. I don't think that's so good for your circuits. Teresa what is a Robin Hood? Oh that's a great question. That is what is called when you split someone else's Arrow with your own Arrow Debra you and I should split narrow sometime. Sure that'd be nice. What chaser what does it mean to knock now? Oh that's a great question that is so if you're shooting and teams going. I and you hit one off either your own. Or maybe your teammates off of the bull's eye or wherever there are always it's pretty much that just noggin it. Right onto the ground theresa. If I were to do what you do. What tips would you give me? I would say if you have a love for the sport. That really is a great place to start and you just have to be willing to put in the time to practice and keep your body healthy. You have to be super strong to be a good archer. You do have to be strong but you don't have to start. Strong actually was not very strong. When I started. And they'll start you out with a bow that you know that fits you and that's good for whatever strength you have and as you work you develop more strength over time. How hard is it to catch the Arrow through? That isn't a team sport. One person shoots. It's the other one has to catch it definitely not. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. What are the steps to becoming a great archery? Okay step number. One would be to find someone who could teach you the proper way of shooting and then once you learn the basics of shooting. The next step is very easy. It's called practice. That's the only thing that will make you a great archer. There are no tricks. There are no gimmicks. Here are no secrets. It's just

New York, Guy Committee And Peter discussed on Mark Simone

"And a thousand potsy almost middle crushed him. But they don't get mad. What what is it with him that he just he does and Sean Penn and there's a few others who just get angry right away. And I don't know why I was just on the red carpet to events in LA at the Golden Globes, a critics choice award, and you know, nine tenths of the actors are so polite and pleasant and deal with it with a sense of humor and don't get excited. But you know, Alex problem was that someone was parking spot that he thought was down the street from where I live actually, and I can tell you you do get riled up. When you feel like the spot was yours of somebody suddenly takes so. New York thing you can't save a parking spot. If you have a car you park, it if you don't have a car there at the moment, it's not your spot. It would definitely make you angry. It people put they say a friend steam, a friend who stand on the spot or they'll have a cone there count. It's not valid. You can't do that. Well, did you see Seinfeld George without a problem with that where he was backing into a spot and a guy was coming forward into the spot, and it led to a lot of bad things. So that's a very New York problem. But if you allow that that means billionaires could just hire a guy or a bunch of guys to stand in a spot and hold it forever. It would always be there spot right in front of their building. I think the question is why he was parking on the street in the first place. I mean, we have a very nice garage at the corner. He coulda park there. And if he has a car and he lives there. I assume he's got us space a monthly space in the garage. Yes. I remember suicide too. So I don't know why he was I don't know what the uproar was. But it's over, and I don't know what can the guy committee alleged to punch guy sue him now or something? Oh, sure. Yeah. Yeah. It's a lower standard in the civil court. So Alec will be on the match game tonight on ABC God. I still like this guy anymore. Well, he does a lot of good things to he's given a lot of money to a lot of New York charities lot of arts institutions, and he has done a lot of good things. So we have to balance that right? Except for the hitting people pretty good. You know? So he hits a couple of people did, you know them. No, no. But in the recording of him threatening to beat up his daughter. I didn't like that one. Yeah. Yeah. Well, he wasn't trying to Peter up. He called her assault. Let's rude. Little pig. Well, he did say when I get there and get a hold of you in. But they've mended their ways they mended their relationship. So it's all right now. Now, what did you think Roger Freeman of the Oscar nominations the Oscar nominations had a lot of surprises for

"potsy" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"Whole offense. JD I thought at first he was going to say the fifty three guys on the roster. The one guy I sort of underestimated was Jordan Howard. That's what direction he was going. He completely ignored Jordan Howard. I heard hey, it's anyone wanna talk to or about Kareem hunt. Anybody somebody? I mean, look, let me look there was a lot of players that were that were brought up today that we're specifically addressed whether it was Mitchell Trubisky or to recall or Khalil Mack or Kareem hunt. Certainly Cody parkey potsy tried to slip in an Tonio Brown question to and like the like behind door number two. Tonio brown. So fees were all answered directly in that one. Just was that. So what do you like everyone? Everyone has suspected for some time. I don't think he fits what they're doing. I think they're looking for an upgrade their in really important thing. That was said today that's going to get lost in the park in the hunt stuff and stuff is is when Matt Nagy and Ryan pace said if you're not getting better, you're getting worse. This is a challenging off-season because the status quo while it's good. It's not okay. You've gotta try to find a way to make the roster better with limited cap space with limited draft picks. How are they going to do that? So I think it's actually going to be a very interesting off season. I look forward to seeing what the bears have up their sleeves because they gotta get better. And gotta try to improve the roster, and there are some positions where you look at and say, okay, you can definitely get better at running back. No. No doubt kicker certainly maybe even at at punter some other spots I offense and defense. So I thought that was big, but, but that's not going to get the place today today is, you know, hunting out for blood with Cody park, Rafter JD. What is your take on on the comments about? Chuck Pagano and how he may differ from Vic Vic may have been more of a close to the vest. He wasn't a guy that blitz the ton. But when they blitz they got their of their fifty six just do the math thirteen of them came from non pass rush guys, which means d tackles deandre or Outside Linebackers, which means when they did blitz. They got their where did what did you make of how Ryan and Matt specifically Matt talked about the grass of -ness of Chuck Pagano, which was very peeling to him. Well, I I think too is in Tom the one thing that was said that really caught my my attention was went Nagy almost a throwaway line reminded everyone that Donald in Fangio coach together in Baltimore. So as far as terminology goes, he may seem like the terminology is going to be very similar, and it's not gonna be anything for the players to to have to worry about that. Is you could forget about that. I mean, they weren't together in Baltimore. Now forgotten was only core here for one year. No fangio. Was there Fangio's began in Baltimore. I think he was like a special assistant to the head coach. And then he got back on the side of thing. I don't expect a ton of change. But there will be change. And yes, Donald does with more. And maybe that's something that I feel like they need to do more of. But you know, it's it's a little risky in that you have an in house higher versus and outside higher. So things will. Again, change. But one thing about Pagano from what I'm understanding and been told, you know, wasn't hit. Hitting your head success in India's a head coach. But probably he'll a great guy probably better as defensive coordinator. Then as a head coach. I think the bears are going to benefit from that. Have definitely will not be the same. It will there will be different wrinkles. There will be different twists, and that's another way I guess events saying that the status quo is just not acceptable that we're going to try to do things to make this team better. Even though our defense is already among one of the best in the league JD a couple of other notes Ryan pace said that they will pick up Leonard Floyd's fifth year option that trae Burton's injury was indeed an injury nodding Zaidi. It was an MRI thing. Anything else we need to know that stood out to you. And then Anthony Miller having shoulder surgery as we can we all do he was going to. Did you get that shoulder affects that stood out? And then, you know, just the overall satisfaction with Trubisky and where things are going with him. And and Ryan saying that well, this is only gonna get better with Matt Nagy? And I agree. I I really do think he will get better as a head coach. There were some things that took place last year that I know he could. He feels like you can do better with whether it's play calling or timeouts or game management. But it it's it's early in the process here, and the key will be having the good health in two thousand nineteen like you had in two thousand eighteen if you get, you know, good health if you get a couple of upgrades and a couple of positions, and you find the kicker that doesn't miss eleven times. I I think the bears are gonna be right back in the same spot next year. JD? Great work. We appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you guys. All over the betas press conference. We'll talk to Dan Wieder coming up the five o'clock hour all your phone calls and also some of the more of the sound. They were very out front, and Cody parkey that they were not happy. Hey, guys.
