I can't believe John Madden just left and stayed away from football 100%

I'm guessing the reason he doesn't make appearances is because he always hated flying. He would travel by bus to each game. He's too old for Zoom/Facetime/social media and probably doesn't want to be bothered trying to learn it. He's probably too old to get around too.

There was a plane crash at Cal Poly and he knew alot of the guys on board. He hated flying and would always take a bus so yes it played a part of him staying out of sight

It’s probably gotten to the point where kids born in the mid 2010s and later don’t know who John Madden is.

I bet when he passes (hopefully not for a while), people are gonna be like, “:ohhh: so THATS why it’s called Madden?!”

Wait... So that's why they had the Madden Bus?
You ain't know. It was a character in all the broadcasts and they would explain it any chance they had when I was growing up. Madden and drunk ass Summerall was the Aikman-Buck/ Romo-Nance / Collingsworth-Al Micheals of its day especially on Thanksgiving they'd usually give a tour of the "Madden cruiser"

He’s an eccentric dude in his own way.

The no flying thing was always funny to me.
