SORT BY Relevancy
This week on a special NFL Draft edition of Thursday Night Tailgate our guests are: former Patriots Pro Bowl RB Tony Collins, former Rams DT turned broadcaster Bob Fields, former Chiefs & Falcons WR JJ Birden, former Rams Pro Bowl Guard Kent Hill and former Rams Pro Bowl QB Jim Everett.
Tony Collins - We talked with Tony about his draft day memories plus what it was like showing up at training camp the first time. Did the players, especially the other runningbacks, welcome him or did they view him as the guy drafted to take their jobs?
Bob Fields - Bob is a member of the Board of Directors for the NFL Alumni Association and was an undrafted free agent signed by the Rams. What was the draft process like for him? We'll also talk about what the NFL Alumni Association is doing to help the many former players who are now dealing with long term health issues later in life.
JJ Birden - JJ was an 8th round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns who later cut him. What were his expecations heading into the draft? JJ was also a track star in college at Oregon, making it to the US Olympic trials. We'll get his thoughts on the Olympics later this summer and his thoughts on fellow Oregon Duck Devon Allen who's following in his footsteps.
Kent Hill - Kent was a 1st round draft pick by the Los Angeles Rams in 1979. We'll talk about what draft day was like for him. What was it like going through that day and sitting there waiting for your name to be called? We'll also hear his thougths on the Rams selecting Jared Goff with the #1 selection.
Jim Everett - Now that the Rams are back in LA and drafting #1, we'll hear what Jim thinks about the Rams selection of QB Jared Goff as the 1st overall pick. Plus we'll hear the story about what led the Rams to trade for him after a couple of months after the Houston Oilers selected him in the first round.

Update 3 Thank you for your prayers. The issues have been resolved and in a very positive way.
Update 2: I was unable to resolve the problems with BTR prior to the show. I was, however, able to call in and do the show sans chat room and studio. Kindly have a look at the scheduled guests links. If I cannot resolve the issues with BTR, next week may very well be my last show. Prayers are appreciated
UPDATE:I am having trouble with BTR and this show may not actually occur. My apologies to my listeners and especially to my guest if I cannot get the trouble sorted by air time.
My apologies to today's guest, Wild Bill for America who was to be here to talk about his latest initiative, The Outlaws Chapel. You can find Wild Bill and The Outlaw's Chapel on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

Billy Gaines and BLIND aka Irvin want to encourage up coming Artist. REMEMBER Motivation or talent in the world cannot hide the reality that not every artist is ready to make this next step. There are multiple factors in play that are necessary for every artist to put into perspective before making such a momentous decision. So before you pack your bags with visions of accomplishing all of your wildest dreams, be sure that you refer to these methods for music promotion and be honest with yourself by evaluating each factor when determining whether or not you’re primed to make the big move.
From his days training with the legendary Johnny Rodz to being The Laughing Man to taking a joke gimmick and turning it into something credible to helping develop the system responsible for many of the talents being seen on WWE TV, Bill DeMott has seen it all, Bill DeMott has done it all. Tonight, we get the privilege of speaking to Bill DeMott.
Bill has been through everything the business has to offer. He worked for a short lived Chicago/Minneapolis based promotion called the American Wrestling Federation (AWF), the Japanese W*I*N*G promotion and early ECW.
