In an exciting new addition to The Game before the Money Podcast we premiere, “Stories from the Vault” – great moments from the interviews for The Game before the Money: Voices of the Men Who Built the NFL that weren’t used in the book.

Goose Gonsoulin was the first member of the Denver Broncos and is enshrined in the Broncos Ring of Fame. Included in this episode are excerpts of him sharing memories from the first-ever Broncos training camp and on-the-field game day banter with legendary Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Len Dawson.

Also in this episode, two senior nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame 2021 class are discussed: Tom Flores and Drew Pearson. Plus: who are some other players that deserve to be in the Hall of Fame?

Goose Gonsoulin passed away in September of 2014. The clips used are from interviews sometime between 2011 and 2013.

The Game before the Money Podcast is released each Tuesday. The show is produced and hosted by Jackson Michael, author of The Game before the Money: Voices of the Men Who Built the NFL, published by the University of Nebraska Press. Learn more at https://TheGameBeforeTheMoney.com.
