English term or phrase: Dan Fouts
Many jet-setters don't like to fly — even in first class. Say what you will about the inflated ego of Monday Night Football's John Madden. The sports commentator is famous for keeping both feet on the ground.
In 1979, Madden vowed to fly never again, and he's yet to yield to the coast-to-coast demands of his job. He drives more than 60,000 a year, and his $700,000, 45-foot motor home, "The Madden Cruiser," is famous in stadium parking lots across the country. If the game's in Hawaii, call Dan Fouts.

why should one call Dan Fouts?

call someone else who will do the job
Explanation:
Hi clearwater,

This means that John Madden, the sports commentator, does not want to fly to the locations (travel by airplane). Since 1979, he has not flown to any of his assignments and has been unable to travel to the stadium locations where he must provide his services as football commentator. In fact, he travels by motor-home (one of those huge "homes" on wheels) and this motor-home takes him to his assignments. However, he could never travel as fast as he would by plane. For example, it would be impossible for him to work in California (on the west coast) and the next day work in New York (east coast). So if there is a football game in Hawaii... forget it! He definitely needs to fly there (impossible by motor home) so call someone else who can do the job, like football commentator Dan Fouts.
