"Because I always say if you ever told like some of these kids, and like projects in Brooklyn products, Chicago project wherever you know, whether or or low income housing in Portuguese neighborhood like right outside Bebel stadium. Like if you. What happens if someone put a ball LeBron's feet instead of in his hands? Yeah. Yeah. Was that much raw athletic talent who could who could possibly keep them with like that. And we talked about this. The last episode, actually, it's basically, you know, you need that draw. New you need that that salary. You know, you need a multimillion dollar sort of payday for athletes to really want to get into the sporran. He continued like continue that you know, after high school, and that sort of thing that in soccer isn't there quite yet? You know, we're getting there quite yet. Yeah. No shoe is kids will see the ballers playing basketball playing football boxing. And that's how you sort of change your station in life. And and that's what happens is the vela's. That's what happened to Wayne Rooney and this. Yeah, you know, and and until we can fund the game in the same way. And you know, it's tough because you sign the old Surrey alleging the old Premier League legend to your MLS team. You will sell tickets, but it does make the MLS retaining that Monica of almost a retirement leagues for the rest of the world. And we don't deserve that. Atlanta, at least started to change the conversation. A little bit of this year with bringing bringing some young guys from South American really being an exciting fun team to watch. Hopefully that that continues on this year. Yeah. I agree wholeheartedly. I say Lanza as really done a lot of great things for the game. I feel like ranted did this year is kind of like what like a cubs. You know, a cubs Indians series. Did you know what I mean? Like people are like, you know. No one expected to see these teams there and just by virtue of the fact that these were both two hundred dollars. But yeah, I just think the game it's on the rise now more than it's ever been.

We'll politic for seventy three million or whatever, you know. That's that's a big step in the right direction. Hopefully, you know, we'll see more of that. Hopefully, it sucks because we gotta root for him actually to succeed from as an American. But as Tottenham fan were very conflicted on that, obviously. But you know, I I joke the having sorry say I want that kid that's an achievement in and of itself. Yeah. It's we're moving in the right direction definite. We'll just win the Gold Cup twenty nineteen World Cup in twenty twenty the World Cup in twenty twenty six then launched this, you know, because that'll be here on home soil and a launch soccer into the stratosphere.
