Listen: Lakers, Ian O'connor, Bill Belichick discussed on The Woj Pod
"I was surprised. He didn't take the cult's job because you go to your own place. You make your own way and you don't have the Belgian thing hangover you. Here's where I would make the case for that because I think and you've seen this with the patriots. You see it in pro sports and I see it in the NBA where to more closely tuned. Ownership means so much, and there are so many bad owners and there are places you can go. I don't care how good you are. You will not win. You might have a good season, but you can't sustain success with owner who's either not committed or it's dysfunctional or doesn't know what he's doing is trying to meddle or undo decisions. You make no matter how good you are. It's really hard to win in that situation. So yes, replacing Bill Belichick or let's say, replacing, you know, even with the Lakers replacing a Pat Riley or or one of the great coaches, there's something still to be said for boy, I believe in this ownership and while it creates other the shadow and all those things, I'd still rather roll the dice at a place where they know me. They're invested in me, you know, if I go six and ten, they know I know what I'm doing. The players believe in me versus, you know what? Matt Patricia goes through in his first week. We're now everyone's looking at them going like, okay, like, you know what you're doing. Like every young coach faces that that would be the counter to that is, hey, I believe in this owner and I'd rather roll my dice here than some organization. I don't know very well, and you'd better believe Robert Kraft is going to be very committed to trying to win after Bill retires as head coach, right? He's going to feel like I need to show something here to that. I can win without this guy as well. So I, I think that's a great point. And. And craft, I think is the best owner in the NFL. I think he should be in the hall of fame. I, I'm still not quite sure how Jerry Jones beat him to the punch on that. But yeah, craft is is really good. He'd be guide wanna work for and I guess that's what mcdaniels saw now, do I know for sure that they told him you're going to be the successor? No, I don't have somebody directly in the book saying that, but I think it's pretty obvious that that's what's going to happen. The book is Bella check the making of the greatest football coach of all time. The author is New York Times bestselling author, Ian O'Connor, Ian. This is a tremendous book. This is one of the best sports biographies. I've read feel like I've read a lot of them and this you took a really complex difficult subject reported the heck out of it wrote a great and I'm happy for you. I think this is going to be like, this is not going to be a book that just football fans or just patriot fans. You know, this is a book about you. You know, one of the icons, all of sports and you nailed him in well, coming from an industry titan like yourself. I very much appreciate also a former Abella chick non believer.
