Fans should listen to this great segment because all three said what fans feel and think.

Emotional Andrew Mason is the most entertaining version.

Those who listen to 1st & 10 @ 10 know what I speak of. If you tuned into the show over the course of Denver Broncos training camp, when a big play happened, Mase would get amped and his microphone would proceed to break up. It was great radio.

On Friday’s show on Orange and Blue 760, we got emotional Mase. It was during the third hour when the news dropped that the Seniors Committee shunned Broncos linebacker Randy Gradishar ... again. Ryan Edwards broke the news at the top of the hour, Steve Atwater had the reaction of all Broncos fans, and Mase took it from there.

He asked a great question: How many Kansas City Chiefs from the 1960s need to be in the Hall of Fame? Friday’s announcement that safety Johnny Robinson moves forward and more than likely gets through the full committee, puts the number at 10. For a team that has won one Super Bowl and hasn’t been to one since The Beatles were still a band. That’s not to say Robinson doesn’t deserve this, but it’s a legitimate question.

That’s especially true when you remember there are zero members of the Orange Crush in the Hall of Fame. Chew on that and try not to get sick when you swallow it. All Broncos fans should listen to this great segment because all three said what fans feel and think.

As Atwater said, “That’s unreal, man. Unreal.”
