Listen: Ben Simmons, Soccer, Kyle Lowry discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"The show lots of getting the third hour. I WANNA bring back the conversation we were having having an athlete. Compensation Bark Emirate head of the. NCAA had some comments yesterday. We'll talk about that a little bit later in the show Pearl off poll question. We haven't really we do. We did the Eastern Conference all star Russian so by choices. Were Kyle lowry. I didn't poetry trae on there. I do not put Kemba Walker Ben Simmons or Bradley beal who didn't really mention but he's I looked at all sorts. Subsidies Alice Alice so trae young gets forty five percent of what I know he made it then. Ben Simmons then Kyle lowry and then Bradley Beal Opole like that more often than not. You're going to see the most likeable player the most aesthetically pleasing player get the most votes all star game. Well that's not what it's supposed to be. The All Star game name was strictly a popularity contest. Open it up one hundred percent fan void. They don't do that. Because what was it Zaza Pachulia. Few Years Years Back was getting all the votes and wind up as a starter in the All Star game international players get an over sized amount of the votes because an entire country is voting for them so they had to divvied up a little bit but on merit. You're not gonna be able to convince me that trae young deserves it more than Kyle lowry. Are- Ben Simmons Yeah Pirlo. I put a second poll on my twitter feed. Who would you rather have on your team? Kemba Walker Ben Simmons Care to get a result to that. Of course. You're going to vote. Ben Simmons now now sixty five percent gamma as you predicted. Oh I thought like a again. A poll like that would look younger player. Yeah as versatile that maybe I thought my twitter feed. I had my philly friend on their Ben. Simmons does have a likability problem like he's incredibly hard worker. I've been around a little bit incredibly hard worker but he does have bit of likability Elodie problem wise. NBA Fans. Maybe it's because he won't shoot like in just seems like indifferent to the idea of it. Maybe that rubs people a little bit the wrong way so now at least least. I'm right on one of your poll questions. I have all the polls on the Dan Patrick dot com twitter account at. DP Show so you guys are headed to Miami tomorrow coming back Friday or Saturday depending on what motel six. You can check into on Friday night seat. You've got a bit of a conflict on Sunday don't you. Yeah this is so this is one of those Thi this is a parental conflict right like one of those things you have to deal with as the parent a young child correct correct yeah. My son plays A lot out of soccer. He plays on Saturdays and Sundays through the winter. And I just was looking ahead at his schedule for this weekend next weekend and I just see on February February second. He's got a game at five o'clock. PM which is just horrendous. Timing who schedules. A who schedules a soccer game at five o'clock Super Bowl Sunday not a football fan Tang for sure. I have a theory on this on a soccer team. I could imagine Po- seen possibly a lot of the parents are from international backgrounds and maybe maybe the NFL's not their biggest thing. Is that fair very fair. Okay and they may have never two months ago thought for a second about the. NFL Playoffs and that that time of year is possible. It's possible it's your son. Seton old enough in aware enough to understand that football is more important than a soccer game. Yeah he he's GonNa be. He doesn't know about this yet. I don't think that he's looking at the schedule but I know he's GonNa be annoyed because he he loves football. I mean he plays soccer soccer and watches and it's probably second favorite sport but he absolutely loves it. So why isn't bailing out on the table for one game because you you spend and all of your time as a parent trying to preach like consistency and accountability. And if you signed up for this then you have to be. Their new team is counting on you all that stuff. This is more of a you. You think that you're saying if given his druthers your son would say I'm I'm good. I'm going to watch the football game. No not necessarily know he might be like well. No My team needs me. But that's because we're trying to drill that kind of accountability into his head. Well put it this way Paulie kickoff. Six eighteen isn't it about six twenty kickoff so seen could be in his chair for kickoff. But you want the whole ramp up you wanna be in your comfy seat by four o'clock for a six thirty kickoff and I think we're trying to have people over a and do like thing. I have a question for seeing. Do you think you should Ari considering sending a group note. Hey in case you missed the scheduled. The Super Bowl is one hour after gametime any chance. We could bump up kickoff kickoff to two o'clock well my guess is when they went over the schedules. Because all of the coaches have to approve these things from all of the teams that somebody was like this guy's snoozing because he's the only one that doesn't mind playing five o'clock on Sunday so I think that maybe our coach just wasn't paying attention should super bowl Sunday be listed as a national holiday. I mean there's been talk of that anyway right like the people not going in on Monday because they're up late watching the super bowl having a good time watching. It should not be something that like as you're making the schedule in advance you say right. That is basically a holiday. That game has to be at noon or earlier for it's actually happened but holidays are usually in sports when you play more games true. That's when you have a tournament and you're playing three three games that day instead of one non playing holiday will just how about just scheduling mcgahee two hours earlier. I think they'll play right. There is a there is a group text and and another APP that we all use to talk to each other. I think these things. I think you have to do it. Now though. You've nine days if you start getting in the next week and forgetting it could be too late Johnny. What kind of delays Seton to put put a button on this? What kind of delay would be enough for you to say all right? We're leaving like is it twenty minutes if the game doesn't start your game then start to five twenty five thirty. They're they're walkaway point. That happens to and even if the game started right at five they do two twenty five minute halves with a little break in between. So you're looking at. It's going to be six o'clock doc before the game's over anyway because you if it goes late you run. The risk of the potential like Patrick Mahomes could have two touchdowns in the first five minutes. You could sit down and be like Oh man the other way. Garoppolo saying tougher stick. I have to have a half an hour cut off by thirty. We're going home. Keep behind the story. Update you next week. Lot More to get you in the final hour stick around.."
