The story: https://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/cfl-greats-fight-most-bizarre-thing-1.1125070Kapp didn’t back down even late in his life:
Remember seeing it that and thought they were messing around. Nope it was real. Rest in Peace Jumpin Joe
One of my favorite movies!a unique character. as a college QB, led Cal to the Rose Bowl. led the BC Lions to the CFL Grey Cup title. Only played 3 season with the Vikings, due in part to a contract dispute.
Kapp left the Vikes for the Boston Patriots and played 1 season, but eventually retired as a protest over NFL rules on player options and contracts. Kapp sued the NFL over anti-trust violations, which led to the NFL actually adopting some rules changes.
He acted in small roles in a number of TV shows and movies, including the original version of "The Longest Yard" and "The Six-Million Dollar Man."
Kapp is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame and the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
