The Broken Record


As I typed the title to this post I realized that most of the readers of this site will not have a clue what I am talking about. They will probably think it has something to do with Brett Favre breaking the NFL record for the number of unretirements. Allow me to explain.


Long, long ago there were no CDs. Cassettes had not even been invented nor 8 track or reel to reel. Sounds were recorded on vinyl discs known as "records". The "record" was rotated on a device known as a turntable and the sound was reproduced through a device known as a "needle". If the record was scratched or cracked it was called broken. The needle would hit the scratch and bounce back and replay the last portion of sound. If someone repeated a phrase or sentence or theme they were said to sound like a broken record.


Today I sound like a broken record as I once again raise awareness of the lack of Denver Broncos in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Specifically I point to the omission of some of our players in the sixties and seventies. The best example is Floyd Little. I will not bore all of you with another parade of his skills and records broken (yes that kind of record!) I will however point out that the only way for Little to make it into the Hall is through the Senior Committee. They meet on the 25th of August to select the two seniors to be forwarded to the entire committee for consideration for selection to the Hall. I urge any and all of you to email the Senior Committee and blatantly advocate for the selection of Floyd Little for the Hall of Fame.


The Senior Committee members and their emails are:


Edwin Pope - 


Ira Miller -


Rick Gosselin -


Ron Borges -


Dan Pompei -


John McClain -


John Czarnecki -


Dave Goldberg -


Len Shapiro -



A sample email might look lie this:


Dear ________


I write today to urge the selection of Floyd Little to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I am certain you are aware of his accomplishments both on and off the field. I simply want you to be aware there are many fans who feel Floyd belongs in the Hall.


Thanks for your consideration.

Let’s flood the committee with emails of support for Floyd. Go to it guys and gals!
