Immortalized by NFL Films. 1000 years from now, the NFL will be remembered fondly because NFL Films does such a good job.

I remember Stram as the coach of the great KC teams from the AFL days, when they had epic battles with the Raiders. I lived and died as a kid pulling for the Chiefs. And I remeber Hank stalking the sidelines and exhorting his team or berating the refs. He was one of the best and his Super Bowl 4 win was truly deserved. That teams with Lenny Dawson, Otis Taylor, Buch Buchanan, Bobby Bell, Mike Garrett, Ernie Ladd..was probably one of the finest ever put on the field. Hank was a guy who told it like it was. He never held back and that is what is sorely missing in todays broadcasting. Madden has some of it but he has softened in recent years. RIP Hank.

Hank was a classic in more ways than one.
