Poor retired NFLers now suing over (spins wheel) use of their likenesses in NFL Films

Curley Culp and John Riggins, Dave Casper, Tom Mack and Ron Yary, Mike Bass, Willie Buchanon, Roman Gabriel, Joe Kapp and Phil Villapiano are all suing the NFL. They claim the league uses footage of them to promote sans their OK. “NFL Films has never obtained authorization from retired players to use their images to be, as NFL Films puts it, the ‘backbone’ of the NFL Network...

White History Month – John Riggins

Today we’re all taking our caps off our heads and bottles of Wild Irish Rose to salute a White History pioneer in the NFL, Mr. John Riggins. Riggo was such a Blue Collar lunchpail type guy that I like to have a little fun with it and call him a Factoryback. The last world-class White ball-carrier was nicknamed “The Diesel” because he was salt of the Earth and you could light...

30 Year Anniversary of the Diesel Running Over The Dolphins

Thirty years ago today the Washington Redskins celebrated their first ever Super Bowl victory. The seminal play of that game was a gutsy fourth down call from coach Joe Gibbs that gave the ball to all-awesome running back John Riggins. Riggins got much more than the first down, the Skins won, and Riggo would go on to party with Supreme Court justices. Many thanks to William World...

Washington Redskins Try to Shed Laughingstock Image

The Washington Redskins are one of the NFL’s most storied franchises. The franchise has produced Hall of Famers like quarterback Sammy Baugh, who was also an accomplished punter and defensive back.  Hall of Fame running back John Riggins gained notoriety carrying the ball for the burgundy and gold. Last, but not least, I must mention Hall of Fame head coach Joe Gibbs, who led...

John Riggins And Dexter Manley Grill A Turkey (PHOTO)

Via good old @riggo44: Had Dexter Manley over yesterday 2 help me eat the wild turkey I got in Kansas. He didn’t disappoint! That may or may not have been a turkey Riggins took down a couple weeks back which may or may not have been for his upcoming outdoors-y TV show, Riggo on the Range. Hopefully Dexter’s his sidekick.

John Riggins ends Redskins show, starts outdoors show

I must say, I wasn’t terribly surprised when John Riggins announced earlier this month that he was taking a break from being a grumpy old man vis a vis Mike Shanahan and the Redskins. I mean, when last we heard from Riggins, he was saying that he really believed “that, for the good of the franchise, somebody else has to own this franchise,” and that “that trophy’s getting...

John Riggins, back on air, finding the positives

There was still no John Riggins postgame show on Sunday, but Riggo appeared briefly on WTOP, presumably using a satellite phone from some woody outpost in Kansas. His status update last week seemed to suggest that he’d be spending the rest of his fall Sundays doing something other than watching football games, but he apparently made an exception for Skins-Jets on Sunday.
