Thomas six or seven year old kid Livan on the northwest side of Milwaukee. Watch in the end the Lombardi era watching those gains of my dad. Packers beating them Ramsey county stadium and then on to play the Dallas Cowboys. In the ice bowl. The rams with Roman Gabriel you know we've got to know his son Roman junior and and we see him every we'll see him at the Super Bowl in me let's. Roman Gabriel thrown passes Jack's now the defense and fearsome foursome you've got to have Merlin Olsen deacon Jones and almost. So. George Allen was the coach of the rams in the late sixties or resent. Then he goes to the Redskins and he takes over after Lombardi dies as boring finish is yours as head coach of the Redskins. George Allen liked older players. He called on the over the hill game Sonny Jurgensen Billy killer after that quarterback Chris hamburger linebacker. And I I heard this story the other day about a young player. Who is a safety Colgate now they were actually a top 25 team at the time. When George Allen who kind of look like President Reagan in all smiley dark hair very friendly make great motive. He calls this guy personally says hey we like your play Colgate we're gonna draft him tomorrow. The draft has gone. So. Go to the airport we got a ticket for you fly it wherever press conference to announce that you're gonna be a Washington Redskins. All this is great. So he flies and where there's four or five other players heard the report they get picked up by an assistant to George Jones assistance and they're taking out all over Washington DC. To tour the monuments. Okay whatever and they give back the hotel room that night and he calls home doctor's wife this is that's been great she goes where have you billion. The giants have called these other teams they try to call you see at UB adversity and being drafted that are coming to their teams won't really. The next morning he goes in and the Redskins and George Allen tellem. OK we didn't drafted its call it's a technique they used used back in the day called were hiding players Maryland. Yeah listen order which we didn't draft him to listen we watch on the team right here's a contract 21000 dollars take a few minutes a look over signed. And mortgage indicate. You know player wise. Mark Brooke. I was gonna say that yeah. I've heard stories about that before they put guys in your in your living room. And I satiric and I pandering to you but here's some money here is where we're gonna do so when people call they don't driven nobody gets trader at the new rule will be key here.
