Automatic TRANSCRIPT

He says, look, we're the best most powerful union of all those who represent pro athletes in America's that truth is not you because. The if you look at the people in the union, they're not the star players, right? If you think about like the NBA who's leading at union, Chris Paul LeBron James the stars. If you think about the end, the NFL is not the Tom Brady is it's not the Aaron Rodgers is not those guys. They're not the drew Brees, those aren't the guys. It's like if you look at most visible, right? They're not the guys that are if those guys are real big part of the union, Dennis more powerful. And why aren't they? Why would they be? They get paid very well, right? They don't have to worry about like what the other guys get. Right. They just they're deals already taken care of. It's like, you know, they don't have to it doesn't look they don't really have to look out for the bottom. You don't say because they're on the top. And it's like you get it. But they're like if you go to most teams, and you think about who's the players as usually a special team guy that you may not even know their name of or lime interro. Yeah. Or like a deficit third-string linebacker something a lot of guys love and enjoys a good, dude. Like, he's gone to the meat. He's not a superstar. Yeah. But you show up to the meeting with thirty two superstars as your union. Then you become the. Most powerful. How do you face that? Even fixable is a fixable. Thanks fixable. But I think it's broken. It sounds like there's a separation between the superstars and the agenda of the union yet. I think I mean, it is I think the unions working for the players aren't the supercenter marginal. Or or are that are not not too strong a word, but that's not superstar. This is going to be the union before the stars do. Right. Right, right. The people that live in the worst neighborhoods knee. You know, they're gonna need lawyers more likely than people who live in the suburbs straight. You know what I'm saying true
