    What were the travel conditions like back then, and besides San Diego stadium, was there a stadium that you did not want to play in, and was there a stadium that you enjoyed playing in?

    When you were preparing for a game, did you ever stop to realize that Sid Gillman was headed to the Hall of fame, and did you ever think that you were going to change the way football is played with all the elaborate passing schemes.

    What was Lance Alworth like in the locker room and on the Airplanes when you were traveling?

    We've all heard of the vicious conditioning and Sid Gilman's controversial methods. How has such harsh training regimens influenced current strength training and preparation in the NFL? How do you think Gilman's philosophy and approach to the game has impacted the way professional football is played today?

    What differences in Caliber did you see in the opposition players when the AFL merged with the NFL.

    Awesome score....

    I read Mix was nicknamed the intellectual assassin for his physical play. (WIKI) Why?

    He was called for only two holding penalties in 10 years…wow any comment on this would be cool.

    I want to know if he sold out by being a Raider in 1971!...what is his opinion of the raiders past and present.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Mix

    Ronald Jack Mix (born on March 10, 1938), in Los Angeles, California was an American football player.

    Mix attended USC, and upon graduation played left tackle and guard for the American Football League's Los Angeles/San Diego Chargers (1960-1969) and the NFL Oakland Raiders (1971).

    [edit] College career

    A graduate of the University of Southern California, Mix was an original Los Angeles Charger in 1960. Mix was also a member of the Delta Chi Fraternity.
    [edit] Professional Football career

    Because he had a Juris Doctor degree, Mix was nicknamed "The Intellectual Assassin" for his physical play. Mix was called for a mere two holding penalties in ten years.

    Mix, who was listed at 6'5 and 270 pounds, was an early proponent of weightlifting to enhance athletic power. He was years ahead of the curve that soon at lineman and other football players taking up that practice to become better athletes.

    He was a factor in the Chargers' early domination of the AFL's Western Division, and in San Diego helped them win an American Football League Championship in 1963, when they defeated the Boston Patriots.

    He was elected to the AFL All-Star team for nine straight years as a Charger, is a member of the All-time All-AFL Team, and is one of only 20 men who played the entire 10 years of the AFL.

    He was voted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1979 and also a member of the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, being elected to that in 1980[1].

    Let's compare football players from 1963 versus now.

    1- Who's tougher?
    2- Whos' better conditioned?
    3- Who's smarter?
    4- Was the coaching better then or now?
    5- Compare Gilman to Coryell to Norv Turner?

    Regarding that great 1963 team:

    What are the other guys on the team up to now?
    Do you ever hear from them or get together for reunions?
    Do you think that team has gotten the recognition it deserves?

    I'd like to know if he is available to join this team this season. We could sure use him, even at his age.

    Is he glad he played when he did, or does he wish that he could be out there today.
