Default Floyd Little Ripped the Denver Broncos on Sirius XM

Wow, I just heard an interview with Floyd Little on Sirius XM and he really let loose and ripped the Denver Bronco’s organization on how bad they have treated him. He didn’t pull any punches on how disappointed he was with the way the Bronco’s handled his Hall of Fame induction. He said he had to pay for most everything out of his pocket including his hospitality food tent. All the other inductees had lavish hospility tents paid for by the team organizations. He also told of asking the Bronco’s for $250 for advertising in magazine and he was told “no, we have done enough for Mr. Little over the years”. It was really sad and he was obviously very bitter toward the Denver Broncos. I think this is all in his new book just released.

Does anyone know how to get a copy of his interview to post?

Sounds like a false sense of entitlement. The guy finally gets inducted and it's still not good enough.

Floyd probably kept asking this guy



this could be one of the many reasons why John Elway has brought back some of his old teamates to camp this year.

Good point, I wonder how much out of pocket expense John paid for his HOF induction?

It wouldn't even matter to Elway and that's the difference.

Even if Floyd doesn't matter to Pat Bowlen, he could have sent the Broncos team jet out to pick up the Floyd family and friends and paid for a nice hospility tent.

I don't think it's false at all. As far as I'm concerned, he's rightly entitled. The team should definitely show some courtesy for guys like Floyd Little. These guys paved the way for what we have today, and they weren't getting paid the millions upon millions that are shelled out in this day and age.

We don't have a lot of Broncos in the HOF. The organization should think to take good care of the ones that we do have.

There was a reason he got his nickname. If true, the Broncos should have done more.

in 2010, the franchise was a mess. I don't doubt Floyd's claims

i agree. from a PR point of view, it's a good thing to do. but even if nobody were ever to know about it except the Broncos and Little, it's the RIGHT thing to do.

That's pretty disappointing. It's not like we're talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars here. For a billion dollar franchise a decent tent with catering, 10 or 15 decent hotel rooms probably wouldn't even cost 20 grand. Instead you have a HOF'er blasting the team. Not the kind of PR you want.

this falls squarly on Ellis and gutless drunk if true. Again, you really can't blame McD for this type of crap. This comes from the very top down.

This is a Joe Ellis issue... very disrespectful, if true.

I was driving and listening to the interview so I may not have all the facts of the interview right so please feel free to correct any thing that might be wrong in my opening post.

But for 5 to 10 minutes he ripped the Bronco's organization and was obviously very hurt by their indifference to his HOF induction.

I would really like to see John come out and apologize to Little and mend some fences on this one, I know it wasn't his doing, but I think this is a situation where he can show that the Broncos are all about being a classy organization.

Exactly. If it weren't for guys like Floyd the Denver Broncos may have ended up the Albequerque Assclowns and nobody wants to root for those guys. They're assclowns.

Pat can pony up $250 for an ad FFS. Floyd's induction is a net positive for the club and hence a wise business investment. Bad decision all around. Gets negative pub from Floyd, peeves fans, and reflects poorly on the club because it is a Busch league move.
