(This episode was originally published on August 5, 2017.) This week’s Deep…Dive was into the Hall of Famer, “The Big Cat” Ernie Ladd. Rich and his co-host Daniel Palmer (@Dpalm) of The Unanimous Decision (@UDPod) Pod on the MTR Network (@MTRNetwork) discussed how “era-proof” Ernie was, his career both in the AFL and the world of pro wrestling, big matches, his relationship with “Cowboy” Bill Watts, and his fit in the fabric of the Civil Rights movement of the ’60s and ’70s (all the way to today). The guys took listener calls and emails as well, answering questions on whether an African-American in 2017 with Ernie’s size and ability on the mic could thrive nationally, whether Ladd’s work-rate was enough for 2017 eyes, could Ladd get away with the comments – particularly the inflammatory usage of racial slurs – today?
