The Greatest Show on Grass

#3: The People vs. Darryl Henley

March 16, 201648 min
As FX continues its broadcast of The People vs. O.J. Simpson, we got to thinking about the other trial of a fallen football star going on in Los Angeles in 1995, that of Rams cornerback Darryl Henley. Sports Illustrated senior writer Michael McKnight joins Joshua Neuman and Tunisha Singleton to discuss the incredible ways that the Simpson trial impacted Henley’s legal fate. We’ll also look back at the career of Woody Strode, specifically, his starring role in the courtroom drama, Sergeant Rutledge, a story that eerily foreshadowed many of the themes of the Henley case some 35 years prior. PLUS: Suge Knight, JFK Junior, Kirk Douglas, and house hunting with the present day Rams on this episode of The Greatest Show on Grass.
