On Sirius NFL-Joe Pisarcik retires- George Martin a Fraud

EricJ : 6/14/2017 7:30 am
Hear a replay of "Late Hits" a show with Gil Brandt this morning. They said Joe Pisarcik was retiring as NFL Alumni President. That he did a great job in that role. Personally, I had no idea but good for him. Glad to see that he was able to make some positive contributions to the sport after retirement.

Then, they referenced George Martin as the prior president and that he was a "fraud". Basically doing nothing at all for the alumni. Those are strong words. Gil's co-host said it and Gil agreed. Does anyone have any insight into this? Possibly was discussed here at length at some point but I have been out of the loop.
Wow that's interesting

Gil usually doesn't have a bad thing to say about anyone.
Good to know Pisarcik didn't fumble away his opportunity

But I know Martin was seen as a stooge of the owners
Alumni will say stuff

but thats all second hand. I think Gil may have gone too far on that.
George Martin

One of my favorite Giants
Why don't these guys get after someone in position with enough clout

to actually make a change, like the NFLPA president? Instead, they're talking about the Alumni Association President? Really?

No kidding.

Was Alex Marvez the co-host? There's another guy who doesn't have a bad thing to say about many people.

I dont think you understand the context. Somehow, the topic of Joe Pisarcik came up and that he was retiring. They said how he did a great job with the alumni position. The comment about George Martin was just a throw in at the end of the Pisarcik discussion. The conversation did not start with George Martin.... it just ended there.
