Our friends at the Talk of Fame Network have been pumping the AFL very hard recently, and are putting out a lot of great content.  They recently started a five-piece podcast with legendary Raiders quarterback and Head Coach, Tom Flores.  The first segment covers Flores becoming the first Hispanic-American quarterback in professional football, an event that occurred on September 11, 1960. The second segment revolves around Super Bowl IV, when Flores was a back up to Len Dawson in Kansas City.

The final three parts of the podcast are yet to be released, but are sure to be fantastic.  If you haven’t yet done so, be sure to bookmark the Talk of Fame Network.  Ron Borges, Rick Gosselin and Clark Judge are all voters for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, with Borges and Gosselin maintaining sport on the Senior Committee.
