Joe DeLamielleure Trashes The NFLPA And More On Game On [AUDIO]
Hall of Fame Right Tackle Joe DeLamielleure was known as a hard nosed, aggressive player during his time as the anchor of the famous “Electric Company” offensive line of the Buffalo Bills. Well, when Joe joined Game On to talk about the Ronald McDonald House Hall of Fame Golf Classic, he held nothing back when discussing concussions, veteran compensation and the NFLPA.
Joe talked at length with Bruce about why he’s involved in the lawsuit against the NFL, and his complete distain for the way that NFL and the Players Union have “taken care” of retired players. DeLamielleure was brutally candid about how he feels that the Players Union has “screwed” the older players and their families, suggesting that Demaurice Smith and Gene Upshaw both run a corrupt operation. He shared a good deal of insight and detail into the lawsuit against the league, and also shared some of his thoughts on O.J. Simpson, who he created running lanes for for the better part of his career. Check out Joe’s conversation with Bruce below, and tune in to Game On with Bruce Jacobs, weekdays from 3-7pm on 104.5 The Team.
