John Madden (judge)
Sir John Madden, was an Australian judge and politician, the fourth and longest-serving Chief Justice of Victoria, in office from 1893 until his death. He was acting governor on a number of occasions. Madden was born in the village of Cloyne, near Cork, Ireland, in 1844, the second of seven sons of a Cork solicitor named John Madden; the family moved to London, UK in 1852, where his father had taken a job managing an insurance company, there Madden attended a private school. He spent some time at a college in Beauchamp, France. In January 1857, the family emigrated to Melbourne, where John Madden senior was admitted as a barrister to the Victorian Bar; the family lived in the suburb of Flemington. Madden was enrolled in St Patrick's College in East Melbourne, he studied at the University of Melbourne, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in 1864, a Bachelor of Laws in 1865. Madden was admitted to the Victorian Bar on 14 September 1865, where he established a good reputation for himself in equity and criminal law matters.
In 1869, he received a Doctorate of Laws degree from the University of Melbourne. He stood for election to the Victorian Legislative Assembly in 1871, for the seat of West Bourke, but was unsuccessful. In 1872, he married Gertrude Stephen, with whom Madden subsequently had five daughters. Madden was elected for the seat of West Bourke at the subsequent election, in October 1875 was made the Minister for Justice in the McCulloch government, he lost his seat at the following election, but was temporarily retained as Minister for Justice until 1876, when he was elected to the Assembly for the seat of Sandridge. After McCulloch's resignation in May 1877, Madden left the ministry, but returned in March 1880 when he was made Minister for Justice in the Service government; this government only lasted five months, however. Madden retired from politics in 1883 to concentrate on his successful legal practice, which flourished during the Victorian land boom of the 1880s, he was considered one of the leaders of the Victorian Bar at this time, to the extent that by 1890, he was involved in about thirty percent of all cases coming before the Supreme Court of Victoria.
In 1887, he had a thirty-room mansion built for himself and his family in Chapel Street in St Kilda East. It was named Cloyne, after the town; the property is owned by the Salvation Army. He was offered judicial positions several times, rejected them, however after Chief Justice George Higinbotham died in late 1892, Madden was offered his position, became the next Chief Justice on 9 January 1893, he was knighted that year. One of the more interesting cases that Madden presided over was Bloomfield v Dunlop Tyre Co Ltd, decided 8 May 1902, thought to be the first court case involving a car accident in Victoria. A demonstration vehicle owned by the Australasian Dunlop Tyre company was being driven towards the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds by the general manager and the advertising manager of the company; as they were passing the Flemington Racecourse, they slowed but did not stop, after startling some horses, they collided with one, injuring its leg. The horse's owner sued Dunlop Tyres; the case came before Madden, who admitted that he didn't know anything about cars, requested a demonstration outside the court building in William Street.
After viewing the car's performance, the driving skill of the two managers, he promptly found in favour of the horse owner, awarding him ₤250 in damages. Madden, however warmed to automobiles and became the first president of the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria in 1903. Aside from his political and judicial work, Madden was the vice-chancellor of the University of Melbourne from 3 June 1889 to 20 December 1897 and chancellor until his death in 1918. In 1899 he was appointed as Lieutenant-Governor of Victoria, was made a Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George that year; when Governor of Victoria Sir John Fuller was away in the United Kingdom in 1913, Madden assumed his role after a motion of no confidence was moved against Premier of Victoria William Watt. Madden caused some controversy when instead of appointing Donald McLeod of the Commonwealth Liberal Party, he appointed Labor leader George Elmslie. Elmslie's term in office lasted only thirteen days before his appointment was rejected by the Legislative Assembly.
In 1905, members of the Victorian Bar donated a sum of money to the University of Melbourne in recognition of Madden's services to the university and the community. In 1906, he was elevated to Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St George; when the Historical Society of Victoria was formed on 21 May 1909, Madden was made its first patron. Madden died in 1918, was buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery, he was survived by six children. Judiciary of Australia List of Judges of the Supreme Court of Victoria ^ 28 VLR 72.

John Earl Madden is a former American football coach and sportscaster. He won a Super Bowl as head coach of the Oakland Raiders, after retiring from coaching became a well-known color commentator for NFL telecasts. In 2006, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in recognition of his coaching career, he is widely known for the long-running Madden NFL video game series he has endorsed and fronted since 1988. Madden worked as a color analyst for all four major networks: CBS, Fox, ABC, NBC. Madden has written several books and has served as a commercial pitchman for various products and retailers, he retired from broadcasting on April 2009 to spend more time with his family. John Madden was born in Minnesota to Earl Russell Madden and Mary Margaret Madden, his father, an auto mechanic, moved the Madden family to Daly City, California, a town just south of San Francisco, when John was young. He attended Catholic parochial school with John Robinson at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, graduating in 1950, Jefferson High School, graduating in 1954.
A football star in high school, Madden played one season at the College of San Mateo, in 1954, before he was given a football scholarship to the University of Oregon, studying pre-law, playing football with boyhood friend John Robinson. He had a knee operation, he attended the College of San Mateo in 1955 Grays Harbor College playing in the fall of 1956, before transferring to Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, where he played both offense and defense for the Mustangs in 1957 and 1958 while earning a BS in Education in 1959 and an MA in Education in 1961. He won all-conference honors at offensive tackle, was a catcher on Cal Poly's baseball team. Madden was drafted in the 21st round by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles in 1958, but in his first training camp an injury on his other knee ended his playing career before he got a chance to play professionally. Madden recounted how he became involved with coaching: "I got hurt in my rookie year with the Philadelphia Eagles - a knee injury - and I couldn't play.
While I was rehabbing, Norm Van Brocklin would be watching films and would explain what was happening. I ended up with a degree in teaching, my love for football meshed with teaching."In 1960, he became an assistant coach at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, was promoted to head coach in 1962. Following the 1963 season, he was hired as a defensive assistant coach at San Diego State, where he served through 1966. During that final campaign, the Aztecs were ranked among the top small colleges in the country. While at SDSU, Madden coached under Don Coryell, whom Madden credits as being an influence on his coaching and who he feels will one day be included in the Hall of Fame. Building on that success, Madden was hired by Al Davis as linebackers coach for the AFL's Oakland Raiders in 1967, putting him in the Sid Gillman coaching tree, he helped. A year after Raiders head coach John Rauch resigned to take the same position with the Buffalo Bills, Madden was named the Raiders' head coach on February 4, 1969, becoming, at the age of 32, professional football's youngest head coach to that time.
According to former Raiders coach Dennis Allen, John Madden was arguably the best Oakland Raiders coach in the history of the team. Madden's Raiders reached and lost five AFC Title games in seven years, which left the Raiders with the same image that the Dallas Cowboys had had—as a team unable to "win the big one." Despite a 12–1–1 mark in 1969, the team lost 17–7 to the Kansas City Chiefs in the final American Football League championship game. Three years what appeared to be a last-minute victory over the Steelers instead became a part of football lore when Franco Harris' "Immaculate Reception" gave Pittsburgh a 13–7 win. In 1974, after defeating the two-time, defending Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins in dramatic fashion, the Raiders lost again to the Steelers in the AFC Championship game. In 1975 NFL season, the Raiders went 11–3 and lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game by a score of 16–10. In 1976, the Raiders went 13–1 in the regular season, escaped the first round of the playoffs with a dramatic and controversial victory over the New England Patriots.
In the second round of the playoffs they defeated the Steelers for the AFC Championship. On January 9, 1977, Madden's Raiders captured their first Super Bowl with a convincing 32–14 win over the Minnesota Vikings; the Raiders lost the AFC Championship Game in 1977 to the Denver Broncos. Madden retired after the 1978 season. Among Madden's accomplishments as a head coach were winning a Super Bowl, becoming the youngest coach to reach 100 career regular season victories, a record he compiled in only ten full seasons of coaching at the age of 42. Madden is still the coach with the most wins in Raiders history. Madden never had a losing season as a head coach, his overall winning percentage, including playoff games, ranks second in league history. Madden achieved his record during a period that included head coaches Tom Landry, Don Shula, Chuck Noll and Bud Grant, who are regarded as the top coaches of that era. From 1979 through 2008, Madden worked as a color commentator/analyst on NFL games for all four major American television networks.
After working lower profile contests for CBS during his first two years, he was elevated to the network's top football broadcasting duo with Pat Summerall in 1981, replacing Tom Brookshier. Prior to teaming with Summerall on CBS, Madden was paired with a variety of announcers, such as
John Madden (ice hockey)
John J. Madden is a Canadian former professional ice hockey centre and current head coach of the Cleveland Monsters of the American Hockey League. An undrafted player from the University of Michigan, he won three Stanley Cups during his National Hockey League career: two with the New Jersey Devils and one with the Chicago Blackhawks. Madden was noted during his career for his ability to kill penalties, play both ends of the ice and score shorthanded goals. Madden was regarded during his career as one of the league's best defensive forwards, his penalty-killing skills generated breakaway chances while his team was short-handed. Madden led the NHL and set a New Jersey Devils' team record — and tied the NHL rookie record at the time, held by Gerry Minor — by scoring six shorthanded goals during the 1999–2000 season. After playing 14 seasons, he retired on September 4, 2012. John Madden's journey to the NHL was an uncommon one; as a child, he grew up in Parma Court, in Toronto. Madden is a graduate of the Victoria Village House League and has played for a number of minor league teams, including the Don Mills Flyers, Scarborough Bruins, Hillcrest Summits, the Junior "C" Alliston Hornets, before moving up to the Junior "B" Barrie Colts.
During his second full season with the Colts, Madden set team records for points. Madden was selected in the 11th round, 173rd overall, in the 1992 OHL Priority Selection by the Niagara Falls Thunder after a 104-point season with the Barrie Colts Jr. B. team. Madden did not report to Niagara Falls, instead chose to pursue an NCAA scholarship. After his second season in Barrie, when he scored 124 points in 43 games, he was still passed over in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. However, of the 286 players drafted that year, only 24 have played more career NHL games than the undrafted Madden. Madden played college hockey for the University of Michigan playing in 160 games and getting 80 goals and 100 assist for 180 points with 123 minutes of penalties. During his four-year career with the Wolverines, Madden set the NCAA record for most career Shorthanded goals and was a member of the 1995–96 championship team. In his final season at Michigan, he was named to both the CCHA First All-Star and NCAA West First All-American Teams.
Madden's teammates at Michigan included future NHL players Brendan Morrison, Mike Knuble, Blake Sloan, Marty Turco, Steve Shields and Bill Muckalt. The presence of Morrison, the Devils' second round pick in 1993, proved fortuitous for Madden, whose strong work ethic was noticed by general manager Lou Lamoriello as he monitored Morrison's college development. Lamoriello offered Madden a contract, he signed with the Devils as an amateur free agent on June 26, 1997. Madden spent the bulk of his first two professional seasons with the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League, he led the River Rats in scoring during the 1998–99 season, setting team records for assists and points. He made his NHL debut on January 6, 1999, against cross-town rivals the New York Rangers and collected his first career NHL point on January 18, 1999, against the San Jose Sharks, he won a permanent spot on the Devils' roster the following season and remained with the team through to the 2008–09 season. On October 29, 2000, in a 9–0 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Randy McKay became the first NHL teammates to each score four goals in one game since January 14, 1922.
Over his career, Madden had thirty-two 2-point games, three 3-point games, one 4-point game and one 5-point game. For most of his time with the Devils, Madden was paired with left wing player Jay Pandolfo, prompting many Devils fans to refer to this ubiquitous duo as "Madolfo"; the value of the Madden/Pandolfo partnership to the Devils was notable after the 2004–05 NHL lockout. Despite the loss of defensive stalwarts Scott Stevens, Scott Niedermayer, Ken Daneyko, as well as a series of rule changes designed to increase offence, the Devils have remained one of the NHL's least scored on and least penalized teams. On April 25, 2006, Madden completed his first career playoff hat-trick in a 4–1 win over the New York Rangers. Madden was a member of the Devils' 1999 -- 2002 -- 03 Stanley Cup champion clubs. After the retirement of long-time captain Scott Stevens before the 2005–06 season, the Devils abandoned the use of the captain's "C" and instead used four alternate captains, drawing from a pool of Madden, Brian Rafalski, Colin White, Scott Gomez, Alexander Mogilny and Patrik Eliáš.
Madden has continued to wear the alternate captain's'A', except for a short time in the 2007–08 season, in which the "A" was given to Brian Gionta, Dainius Zubrus and Patrik Eliáš. Once Jamie Langenbrunner, on December 5, 2007 was named captain, Madden once again was assigned the "A", along with defenseman Colin White. Madden scored his 100th career goal on April 2006, against the Philadelphia Flyers. Other career milestones included his 100th assist, 200th point, 500th game; as an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2009, Madden signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Blackhawks worth $2.75 million. He won his th
John E. Madden
John Edward Madden was a prominent American Thoroughbred and Standardbred owner and trainer in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. He owned Hamburg Place Stud in Lexington and bred five Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes winners, he was inducted into the National Racing Hall of Fame posthumously in 1983. He was inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame for his contributions to the sport as a trainer and owner, he is the only person to be inducted into both the Thoroughbred Halls of Fame. He was a businessman, who invested in corn refining. John E. Madden was born on December 28, 1856 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to Patrick and Catherine Madden, who were Irish immigrants from Roscommon. Madden's father died in 1860. Young Madden had to rely on his wits and athleticism to survive, he worked for four years in the local steel mills as a teenager and fought in prizefighting as a young man to earn money. Boasting an athletic build, at nearly six feet tall and weighing 180 pounds, Madden excelled in baseball and broad jumping.
By the age of 16, he had developed an interest in trotters. Adept at recognizing subtle differences in gait and performance in Standardbreds, both pacers and trotters, from his time driving and training horses, Madden soon amassed a small fortune from buying promising but unseasoned animals, at low prices, developing them into winners and selling them at a profit. By the time he was thirty, he had made $150,000 through his dealings, he said, "Better to sell and repent than keep and resent." Madden notably owned Class Leader, who set a track record at the Cleveland Grand Circuit Race in 1887, Robert McGregor and Siliko. By 1890, Madden realized that Thoroughbred racing was attracting higher purse values than harness racing, he shifted his interests. Into the 1900s, he still trained a few Standardbreds. John Madden moved to Kentucky in 1889, where he lived at the well-known Phoenix Hotel, he applied his business and horse knowledge to Thoroughbreds building a reputation in Kentucky as an astute horseman.
He purchased Hamburg in 1896 for $1,200 from Col. Enright of Elmendorf Farm and set about developing the unruly colt into an exceptional racehorse, he won the 1897 Great Eastern Handicap at a first for a juvenile. Hamburg won 12 of his 16 starts at age two; the owner sold the horse to Marcus Daly in 1897 for $40,000. Madden used the proceeds to purchase 235 acres of land east of Lexington on Winchester Pike, he named his breeding farm Hamburg Place, in honor of the horse. Owned by the family of Lucretia Hart, who married Henry Clay, Sr. the land was called Overton Farm. Madden made Hamburg Place the center of his breeding operations from 1897 until his death in 1929, he bred 14 champion racehorses, including five Kentucky Derby winners, four Belmont Stakes winners and the first Triple Crown winner Sir Barton. Madden was the leading breeder in the United States from 1917 to 1923 and 1925 due to the success of Plaudit and Madden's imported British stallions Star Shoot and Ogden. Madden bred Trigger, Princess Doreen, King James, Southern Maid, Flora Fina, Sir Martin.
Starting in 1908, Madden began burying his most prized broodmares and trotting horses in a small horseshoe-shaped cemetery on the grounds of Hamburg Place. Madden's grandson, Preston Madden, buried a few Thoroughbreds in the cemetery during the 1970s; the cemetery is one of the oldest dedicated to racehorses in the United States. The cemetery was moved from its original location in 2005 to make way for development, but has since been reopened to allow public access. Horses buried in the cemetery include: Standardbreds: Nancy Hanks, set a U. S. harness racing record on September 1892 by trotting a mile in 2 minutes and 4 seconds. Silicon, dam of Siliko. Major Delmar, a gelding. Hamburg Belle, trotting mare that set several world records in early 1900s. Siliko, stallion.

Pink Pigeon, a broodmare Bel Sheba, the dam of Alysheba Madden was an active trainer from 1888 to 1912, conditioning a total of eight champion Thoroughbred horses, he was the nation's leading trainer from 1901 to 1903. During his training and breeding career, Madden mentored William Collins Whitney, a former Secretary of the Navy and fellow Thoroughbred enthusiast. At Madden's urging, Whitney had bought the stallion "Hamburg" in 1900 after Marcus Daly's death. Madden sold many other horses. After Whitney fired the trainer Sam Hildreth due to perceived poor performance, he persuaded Madden to train his horses, although the latter was reluctant. A well-known legend about Madden said that
