Listen: NFL, Football And Panthers discussed on The Traders Edge Radio Show
"Everybody loves it. The dolphins the jets the patriots the whole night. So we got an answer earlier during the year that the XFL is gonna be returning Vince McMahon bringing it back which that worked so. Well, the first time did not you being sarcastic. Yes. The seizures. So that worked out and now not only we're going to get the XFL, Dan. We're going to get this other one the American American alliance football league. Yeah. A F L. Or is it a line of American football league? As one of the other alliance in America are as I'm not sure, which will you put don't put too much detail. AFL? Okay. Then now, you have the NFL, right? We have the AFL we had the XFL. We still have the AFL arena football league originally. Yes. And then, you know, the Canadians have that weird thing they play after a long time. Great job, though. It's weird like one hundred and fifty yards to the field when he really know downs or something like that very bizarre. So now a force pro football league in the United States is on its way. Yeah. The end of the NFL ratings have been like even slightly up this year. I feel like they're doing better they've gone away from the controversy. Yeah. After they've fell off the cliff the past couple seasons. So it's been really interesting. So the question do we need more football leagues. One was having enough trouble. But the other day a group of fifty former NFL players now see are launching the freedom of football league. All in stay at four different. Yeah. The leagues obviously NFL the. AFL the XFL which come back in two thousand twenty the AFL wasn't as early. This year is a new spring league. They're gonna be doing this spring, right, which hopes to be a farm system for the NFL. All right fair enough. If that's what you want to market yourself, you probably stick around. The baseball. Yeah. If you're not marketing yourself like Vincent, man. I day where he went directly against the NFL or like, Donald Trump and the United States football league did went directly against the NFL things didn't really work out for those. You don't want to go against the NFL new. So if you marketing stuff like the alliance, American, whatever they're called football league who Steve Spurrier and all those guys in that might work out you watch house of cards not yet. Okay. Yeah. I was gonna say something, but you wouldn't have gone over my head anyways. So former NFL players behind the NFL clues, Ricky Williams, Terrell Owens, really. I mean, I mean right now, just those two names. Yes. Simeon rice and Jeff Garcia. We were doing our sports show on Friday. We were talking about Jeff Garcia left the NFL for a neck injury. He did. Yeah. He's going to start this league. Anyways. Obviously, they all got skin the game. But the NFL teams will also be partially owned by the players on each team. And why the fans which is very interesting. One other unique thing about they'll be encouraging players talk about quote hot button issues. Yeah. That's exactly we want. That's gonna feel miserable. -pletely politically empowered football players. I mean, that's what the NFL is doing. So that it was the question kneeling be welcome. Launch date. So we're guessing it won't be too designating, but they're starting with ten teams. Gonna start these days. Okay. We have the Sunday. Go warriors. You have the team's excited the Oklahoma City power always. So so San Diego gets a football team. Oklahoma City gets a football team. Okay. Good the Portland progress. All right. Okay. The Texas revolution. Let's go. Freedom in that name flu. I don't know. What's going on here, the Birmingham king's Birmingham? King's the Saint Louis independence the lot of freedom here revolution the pendants, progressive the Ohio players. That sounds weird. I mean, just straight out. That sounds weird. I hate the name the Oakland Panthers. The Oakland Panthers. I'm so confused about this. Like, I feel like there was somewhat of a theme going on here. Power progress, revolution independence. As the word is getting a team. Oh, they are. Yeah. The Florida strong. That's ridiculous. The Florida strong. Why would they do that? That's a terrible names. Very bad name. Very bad name. And then the Connecticut underground now there is a theme going on here. You do have power progress. Revolution independence, strong underground. Yeah. Then you have the Panthers. Which is already an NFL team. Team as numerous college teams. I believe me, I think there's an AFL team. It's a panther too. And are there any Panthers and Oakland? Why is it the Oakland Panthers? I would imagine only as rugs. That's it. I I don't understand what the purpose of all. Hold on a second. Maybe we might be sounding stupid, which would it be ability. Where did the Black Panthers? Have. They're just thinking about very good. That would go along with the whole the whole freedom progression independence theme here that we have going on. So do we just uncover something, very odd? We may have because the Black Panthers had their their evolution their Genesis in California in the Oakland area, which we don't know the answer yet. But we have the internet at at our fingertips. So we can find it out. Yeah. It's a very interesting. Janet would make sense because that would go along with the theme if you just randomly naming your team after the Panthers the animal the Panthers, and that would make sense as inception. October fifteenth nineteen sixty six the Black Panther party core practice practice was its armed citizens patrols to monitor the behavior. Officers of the Oakland police department Rio they yell. There. It is. Now, they sense. So I mean, wow, I'm kind of like a loss of worse right now. So is this a is this all about? I mean, I I mean, you know, what I'm thinking right now trying to figure out a way to be able to put this into words is this all about like black Friday. Seems like kind of now I'm starting to understand. I mean, I don't understand Florida strong. It doesn't make any sense players. Ohio players. Yeah. Don't get that think is counterintuitive, but I also don't know what the Ohio the Ohio players could be something. I mean because they had the underground in there. So obviously that is, you know, a throwback to maybe the underground railroad. You would think so right. I mean, you talk about I think. A band. I mean as a band formed at Ohio nineteen fifty nine I don't think that's what we're looking for here or they just to players because they're like, they're just they're the players on the team. It's like when you have a fantasy football team, you just name your team after your name because you can't think of anything else. So you would just be named dinners team. Yeah. I don't I don't think that's. What soccer teams do? Everything's FC. FCC? You're such a cop out reality something. All right. So so the Panthers name make sense. So the Panthers may make sense if we're going with that same theme underground kind of makes sense there to revolution progress. Power independence. Yeah. I never really thought about this this this tongue in cheek thing that's going on here and the whole purpose of talking about. This was is this. My question was will this start more controversy? If this is true. Coverage is something else completely different than you. Where's nNcholas cage? This is the real independence declaration of independence is by the nose of mount Rushmore is this is pretty crazy stuff. Well, it is interesting. Your original point is interesting too in that will cause more controversy because obviously by freedom. The name implies especially with one of the founding members here, Ricky Williams, the name applies to there will be no drug testing for Don't know sure. that for sure report. But I think it's much more than that though. Because I think about you talk about the the the freedom the kneeling is a good point to read them football league. But yeah. You know? I mean an end in in here. It says this is a quote, you know, another unique thing about encouraging players to talk about hot button issues. So is this a football league? Or is this like the the locker room at CNN? It's. If you see Don lemon playing quarterback wide receiver. Then you're gonna know where these games these games airing on MSNBC. I am Chris Matthews is going to be a play by play fry can't do this. I was going to be the sideline. And the great return of of what's his name that used to be on with Dan, Patrick. What the hell's this Doberman? He's going to be he's going to be the CEO. And all this stuff you keep he gives you the Commissioner. Look this up. This is my blowing. This really is. I never really I I'm seriously like my blood will start more controversy. It looks like they're looking to start controversy. Maybe if they just want to be talked about, this is very odd. All right. Well, wow. So go look that up put the article up on T dot com codex Golden Globes. And they believe the Grammies have also been announced as well. We're going to go over some of the nominees and to begin anything snow, plus a huge trailer came out during the week and another one there's a lot of fun things going on the entertainment business right now. So hit that in the last segment is undecided right here. Fifty WSDL news."
