Shell v Power Nitro plus premium gasoline now at four levels was of defense against gunk where corrosion and friction lots of stuff to get into here our number two before I get back to the calls as is a few things that I wanted to get into number one state of California the Senate. Ok's athletes bill NCWA calls harmful the NCW on Wednesday said legislation in California aimed at giving college athletes a chance to earn money while in school known as the fair pay to play act is harmful and unconstitutional and would quote up in the balance end quote of National Competition in College sports the Organization's Board of Governors in the letter Wednesday to California Governor Gavin newsom asking that the state not pass the bill. California's State Senate voted Wednesday for those of you. I don't know the past the fear pay to play act with a tally of thirty nine zero. That's the Senate vote in California. The California State Assembly approved a bill by by a seventy three to zero vote earlier this week. The bill now moves to newsome who have thirty days to decide whether he will sign it into law. Here's my belief thirty nine senators out of thirty nine thirty nine a state senators out of our thirty nine voted in favor the fair pay to play act terms of the state assembly seventy three out of seventy three voter food who the hell is the governor to say now you you got elected officials from every crevice of the state of California every single one of them seventy three plus thirty nine which equals is one hundred twelve all of them voted to pass this fear pay to play act right and put it into law. The bill is aimed giving college athletes a chance to earn money while in school now understand what the NCW saying it will cause an up it would up end the balance. Wa because because when you talk about athletes being able to make money off of their like this in names able to receive marketing deals except endorsement deals that kind of thing because that's what they're talking. What about here right what you're saying. Is that somebody at do is. GonNa give more than somebody drexel what you're saying. There's somebody at the the University of North Carolina in Kentucky on John John Calipari or something like that or somebody. Villanova is going to get paid all going to be compensated in a fashion that somebody at Mount Saint. Mary are right or Lee. Uh or someplace like that ain't going to get paid. Here's my response. All of that will come to America. Put Me what the Hell is this. I really don't understand it. Thank God for this and forget whether I supported it or not because I why do go forget all of that for a second. This is the problem that I have with the ANC AA and most of you damn people in Meson states of America is the problem by the way at the interpreting Stephen Getting a little bit of political clinical and what a debit toby so be it out had enough of this. I Love America. I I believe the greatest country to what just came for France beautiful over there by the way very very beautiful. I want to say that very beautiful over France. I'M GONNA hit Italy KNACKS WCHS hit England next put up from America you understand I'm a black man in America. Nobody is suffering more than us. You can make this stuff up. All your want to those. Are you critics. WanNa come at US talking about affirmative action. I got news for you. Nobody has benefited more from affirmative action the white woman that's right. I said member money. Josie knows brothers brilliant. No no no what are these people that doesn't believe in gender equity or anything like that to the victims go to spoils. If you've got it like that you could get it. God bless you. God bless you. This is America. I don't really understand this so let me get this straight is due do but to God Bomani and Pablo playing at Drexel and I'm brothers go at five hundred hundred every day Kansas and C. Double A. Tournament but this brothers compete for National Championships while playing under my Cesky. He's supposed to be equal to them. mm-hmm in America in America would walk around and see. There's the problem. Tell Ya at the right man Dan. I Ain't getting into socialism fascism democracy what I'm GonNa tell you this much and I don't mean it it an incendiary way when I say they do this because there are negatives about capitalism no doubt but I'm GonNa tell you something. I'M GONNA capitalist. Do I think that everybody it deserves equal stuff equally hell no hell no. I don't believe that I believe those also better deserves more than those who by the way my position has consisted remember when this title nine they came down and we started talking about female sports out. There folks was talking about equal pay. No I'm not down with that. I think so women deserve. I think Serena Williams Cocoa Golf Naomi or a sock in they deserve more money than most of the men but dammit if they Federa Brian Dal and joke bitch and they don't have that bosseaux appeal even though we know Serena does hey. That's the way it goes. You got women all over the place talking about listen female sports you remember when a coach but Notre Dame Macara regard her name is and she went off about women being putting on this play that tape over and over and over again because she was one thousand percent correct women more positions of power and more positions of influence no question about but when it comes to the Dallas if you ain't generate revenue damage you deserve it period now. We ain't talking women's tennis because we know what they can generate but the WNBA makes less than NBA players for reason all these women and world out here why why do they are going to the WNBA Games. Why don't you go. You got you got you got money. You Got Cachet. You Got Influence. How come you ain't going to the game you you've got the freedom to go out there as support the Wnba what do those turnstiles packed nineteen thousand people inside Madison Square Garden for the liberty inside the staple centers for the sparks inside the Verizon Center nation's capital for the mystics. I'd go get too much of the weeds. WNBA because all it names just real which I don't know all the names because I don't watch the WNBA like Dad. I watched someone who watch all of them like that. My point is these females plan in the world of sports there are there are plenty of women out here in this world who are successful accessible who are making money who who go to games who love sports but you're. WNBA make it as much as the NBA because is y'all ain't going to their games supporting their product the way you support the NBA product so why did you say this stuff about Equality Know Ladies and gentlemen. It's equal opportunity. That's way quality comes into play away opportunity but whoever you support you support and if somebody generates more support that somebody else their debit the people that generate great the most support to get the most money that's capitalism. You really really think that we liked sitting here in America and our police officers are law enforcement officials who put their lives on the line everyday for us. You think we don't deserve money. How about a firefighters. How about doctors you think we'd better nurse teachers serves. You think we don't know they deserve every penny they can get ladies gentlemen. They don't generate ray revenue. The Way sports does the way people don't Wall Street might the way to see over fortune five hundred company my that's why the money that's why there's a discrepancy money. Johnny go to those who generated they set up there and even talked about me back. I remember I was in the news. People speculate how much money I was making how much money I would make. You don't know you'll you'll never know for me. Let me tell you something. Do I believe that I deserve to be the lowest pay Jonathan Shannon. Look at me when I'm talking to. Y'All do I believe that I should be the lowest paid or some mid range pay dude AH ESPN or in the world sports media. Oh Hell no hell no now the work that I do that was put in it. The writings that I generate the revenue that comes with it you damn right. I deserve to be paid. I apologize for nobody. This is America capitalist. I'll be damned if I'M GONNA apologize for that. The State of California stepped up on this the NCWA as acting. I'm not accuse them of being this way but in this particular case that acting like they're anti-capitalist just what the hell you mean equality you eight equal the big five conferences. They get more money than other conferences. You had no problem with that problem. Nick Sabin get more money this coach at Villanova. I guarantee you next became more money than cut clip at Duke. Davos Sweetie signs a ninety any plus billion dollar contract which he deserves. I hear nobody complaining about that. We know how much money Mike Success he's making. I assume Oh you is top notch complain about that but it comes to these kids. Oh now we it unfair. Will you the go she ate show deals with CBS but he NC Double A. Tournament. I don't hear you sitting there complaining about that but with the kids are we gotta be fair. You WanNA teach kid in real life lessons. You remind them that this is America and to the victors go spoils you wanNA piece of this PA aw produce you want more get it done. Hey this is the revenue that we generated last sheen. You want more generate more entrace generate more revenue. If you teach teach them about and maybe you wouldn't have so much trouble. We don't WanNa talk about that. Doing you will walk ground want hide. That reality happened on. This ship ankle happened on this show. I'm not saying that money. Is Everything obviously principled positions. Come with everything we do in life somehow some way you gotta make choices every day but I'll be damned. If I show up to work every day out of the goodness and kindness Mahar trying gotta get paid apologizes after no party. I'll put the work I'll make it happen. I'll do what I can to bring value and equity to this to this monstrous behemoth notice. ESPN and Walt Disney. I'll do all of that. I have my hands out to get paid to. It ain't for free if that's the real world while we acted like any different with these these kids everybody don't get to be sane be good enough in Basketball Duke and Kentucky and Kansas and so in North Carolina and so on and so forth they come talk to me really good enough to be Alabama Clemson Georgia and football boy even Lsu Lsu. Come talk to me if you tag good. That's why you ain't getting compensated the way somebody else might be compensated. It'd be real this baby and every damn body acting like we're baby and went in fact what we're trying to do who is keep all the money for our own coffers. Instead of spreading the wealth around gluttony is one of the seven since very few people are better at it than NCWA finally record up to you now. You have to do a little bit more sharing. Get the hell over. It does go. This is market dollar endorsement deals and stuff like that be happy. California has unlocked in making sure their schools in their state need to compensate state the players the student athletes directly and oh by the way when I say compensation of talking about football and basketball if you're playing volleyball volleyball three happy which damn scholarship. It's not a revenue generator if wrestling be happy with the Damn Scholarship. It's it's not a revenue generator softball. I'm talking about shoo jail stopping some some of you to be happy with a damn scholarship some of you. It should be enough. That's capitalism. That's America and by the way I have no problem as long so as you get what you earn and you get what you deserve. I got no problem with everyone. Does it deserve to be treated. The same does who are elite should be compensated in a better fashion than those who are not Perry it. Well let me start that I shouldn't say period. 'cause you screw you could act like before like an idiot like some people who remain nameless and get yourself so much trouble people that your greatness eight worth it that is possible but that's the exception not the rule and at eight say. ESPN eight seven to nine three seven seven six you listen live to Stephen a Smith show. ESPN RADIO ESPN news. Let's go to Gary. You Love Stephen. It was up Gary Gary go ahead. You're on the air. Go ahead. I got some questions I was calling to ask you How do you think the connection between Tom Brady. Antonio Brown's GONNA be. I think he's going to be elite as long as Antonio on the field long enough to make that happen and do you see the Patriots going back to the Super Bowl. I don't see anybody beating the Patriots. If Antonio Brown is healthy along with Josh Gordon and Tom Radius healthy torn on the football I do not see anybody beating the Patriots under those conditions now worried about the Kansas City chiefs not as not even the slightest because their defense stinks offensively offensively. They're a juggernaut but their defense stinks. They can't get stopped when it really really count data don't believe in Kansas City's defense because of their defense okay. Thank you thank you. Let's go to Mike you lava Stephen. What's up Mike can I just wanted to talk to you about the NC double a. and like you can talk talked about it seems to me over the years that they have a lot of similarities to the mafia they just basically come in and take their car and move on there you can make a legitimate argument by considering a relationship that they have because when television networks and what have you negotiate their own deals power conferences and the NCWA comes comes in during the NC Double A. Tournament they get their money. Lord knows what the BCS what kind of share they get. That's a legitimate point. The I can't deny that it just seems like when they originally formed. It was basically just run. The collegiate tournaments and they keep expanding expanding expanding ending in the biggest thing is that they're controlled by a bunch of mom to have no accountability all their money comes from taxpayers primarily from state run university yeah. It's kind of interesting that we don't have any kind of control over them in you. If you look at their finances it's during the you know you look at it that way. You know the way that I look at it the crime and at all that you know you can understand why state legislators state legislators and beyond don't want to open up Pandora's box and because they don't WanNa get to overly evolve with some of this stuff because it can really be painstaking and tedious and what have you the real problem and all of this is that collegiate athletes to not have have representation. They don't have a players student Athletes Association. That's the problem if if they had representation most of these problems will go away they don't have it and that's where the problem lies and that to me is where government intervention should take place. God the government should mandate that these youths these student athletes have some form of representation tation rather than being placed at the mercy of the NC double a. that to me is what I think is the right thing to do. I agree with you on that point in one last thing I'd like to say I I grew up in Kalamazoo Michigan so I am a long time. Lions Fan Dan obviously but I also lived in Milwaukee and I hate to admit it but Aaron Rodgers is the man he has he has. He's a bad man and nobody in Detroit has been instead of Barry Sanders. I'm glad you know that have a nice day. Take care of yourself. We'll talk soon it at eight say. ESPN it's inundate seven to nine three seven seven six.

We go at it at eight say ESPN. That's eight seven two three seven seven six. Let's go to Rick Req- lava. Stephen a talk to me. Hey what's up Stephen. I just WanNa talk to you about them. Cowboys man and got a question for you man why you keep saying the same old stuff over and over about the cowboy fans. It's just an old man. The jokes are getting stale. I shut the hell up up because you're assuming I'm joking. I'm not joking. I can't stand Joe. It's not joke. I'm not laughing. I can't stand cowboy fans and I mean it is not a joke is how I feel consistently how I felt consistently throughout my life and I can prove to you the fact that you called up the cowboy fan and you. You said that I no longer want to talk to you. Good bye have a nice day. Let's go to nick. You'll obvious even they woods up. I Steve How're don't go ahead. Man You live on the air. Go ahead okay great so we got something in common man ullmark or your mantra with my friend. Your friend who is is Elmer's Malema Smith yes. That's my buddy used to write for the Philadelphia phenomenal. Do One of my buddies absolutely go ahead or my buddy turned me on the Mike Marley do from oranges for Brian Birdwell. I gotta say this. You do billy hunters book because jazzy saying the power with this inspired change. There's GonNa may change. Change is going to happen because by this to come on on says there's nobody black in the power structure and when they ran billy andrade NBA when they ran other brother out. There's nobody there the table oh I first of all. I I stay right there. I appreciate where you're coming from but that's not entirely accurate. First of all go dean succeeded. Billy Hunter Charlie Grantham was before Tommy Gore Dean Charlie Grantham was an exceptional executive director Simon Gore Dean. Some would argue not so much then billy the hunters in there now. Michelle Roberts is in new WHO's a sister so when you bring up or brother or brother Bravo sister and how it is nobody in there. That's an insult to the people that came before billy hunter and who came after so just change the subject because you don't know what you're talking about in that regard. You're wrong there and the leading the union well. You're talking about the union. You brought up to you you bill Janta was the union. He wasn't the League Hundred Executive Director of the Union but I can't think of anybody in the lead. Can you tell us who's in the League at the table. No no I couldn't I mean you have more tatum. Who's the deputy Pity Commissioner of the NBA Okay so you've got that going on but that's the only name that I could really really give view of substance as it pertains to an African American in that position. That's true okay so last. Here's last point on that. Issue are a race race imboden Jordan American fencer Neil so who says we're stopped kneeling. You got the panic game. He's already says don't feel we need to stop. Neal was what Jay Z. said but ten seconds earlier. He said he wasn't against any kind of protests. People are free to do what they want to do and he doesn't have a problem with. He said that ten seconds earlier or whether they clearly if I paraphrase we're done near when he said that afterwards he said another word. It's time time to go and act more than just kneeling so it wasn't like he was trying to say and articulate the position. Don't kneel anymore. He was saying okay now what he just said it wrong now. Let me give you some. Kudos doing a great job. You're you're a CO worker was on a flight with me from Philadelphia Orlando Coaches. AAU team you say when it was your turn to come up. When you came up. Everybody Room said no not him. I'm the boss at that time. You guys don't want him. That's what we want to even that that was what I said on my interview with Michael K on center stage on the Yes network. Tim legler echoed that Tim leg was one of my buddies. I appreciate that but I gotta go. Thank you for the call. Take care of yourself. Will you live Stephen. What's up yes Sir Stephen III First of all appreciate what you said about the empty AA I am sick and tired of the NC double a. and their hypocrisy and let me let me get to Dad boat missed a dad Bo Sweeney talking about his mouth saying that he would quit? Your players got paid the reason why he makes ten million dollars a year. It's called progress. Even everything around these players is progressing. The revenue is generated is more than ever and nothing's changed for these players in the landscape around him is changing but they want the players arrange money code it hold it first of all. I don't recall dabbled sweeney saying that but if he did say that clearly he's lying because dabbled sweeney about to give up nine and a half to ten million dollars a year just because players being compensated. I don't believe that for one second secondly. I think that you have a lot of coaches coaches that don't want to inherit the problem of players getting paid because remember everybody's not going to be equal and thus it would be incumbent upon condemn to get into the mix and decide who deserves to be more compensated than the other and that's not a problem they want to deal with. They want to coach football teams coach basketball teams. They don't want to be the ones to decide. Okay this play is this so he gets paid. Display is not so good. He's ride the bench. I'M NOT GONNA pay him or this. This causes startup but this guy's a star and I gotta pay one differently than I wanna pay the other so even though they averse to that it's not the same as the institution of the NC NC double A. being averse to that an individual coach is thinking about the stress and the strain a headache of having to deal play the role loving employer and having to deal with problems he doesn't want to have the NC Double A. One could argue is simply being greedy. That's the difference between the two entities station. I'm strictly talking about the California ruling that you were talking about where players can get compensated. I want to remind people that somebody don't amass scholarships I might on the band scholarship the ship they can go out and get jobs they can. They can have banned lessons. They can get flu lesson. They can make money but a player. They're breaking his neck. Risking his life and lamp he cannot profit from his lightness is on American. That's what I'm talking about. Steven A. and anybody that thinks that is that is right is a socialist. Is he the the Socialist Institution well you say Socialist Institution. I disagree with you. They're they're extremely capitalistic for themselves. I don't know what you're talking talking about. There are finding is he. WB extremely capitalistic just in favor of themselves that's what I think their behavior emulates that of capitalism the for themselves and maybe socialism everybody else but definitely capitalism for themselves appreciate the call Jonathan you lava Stephen Edwards up even now are you Gordon Moore's second ball I'm a lifelong dolphins fan and been on this planet for Nineteen Years Says Tired of hearing about my parents. My parents friends told me that I need to stick in their seventies. Whatever the warriors were what do I do. Should I hope for a win in any time this year. Should I stress which teams of Y'all want listen. Let's talk about switch it. All you want to but your heart is where your heart is. If your heart is with the Miami Dolphins you can pretend like you room for somebody else. Della cows come home the fact of the matter. Is You really rooted. You're really focusing on another team because of your disgust with the Miami Cami Dolphins as opposed to you. Love somebody else if you love is. Where is somebody else. That's where it's going to be and that's where it's going to stay and there's nothing that you're going to be able to do about that so good luck with it. I've got nothing back Stephen. What do I do well you don't support them to send a message edge that that better times need to arrive sooner than later you don't support ineptitude staring you in the face and slapping that high end to that question wow all right well. I'm delighted. Thank you sir. Thank you take it easy it at eight say. ESPN it's seven to nine three seven seven six back act which calls to close out the show in a minute you listen live to Stephen.

My Buddy turned me on to Mike Marley Wally Matthews Ron borjas for Brian Birdwell guys say this you and Hamsters do billy hunters book because Jay Z. Saying the power with this inspired chains is GonNa. Make change pertains isn't going to happen because by listen come on son says there's no body black and the power structure and when they ran billy andrade. NBA Iran other brother out. Nobody there the table. I suppose the first star right there. I appreciate where you're coming from but that's not entirely accurate accurate. First of all Simon Gore Dean succeeded Billy Hunter Charlie Grantham was before Simon Gourdine Charlie Grantham was an exceptional executive director Director Simon Gordon. Some would argue not so much then billy hunters in there now Michelle Robert is in there who's a sister so when you bring up or brother other brother brother or sister and how it is nobody in there that's an insult to the people that cable for Billy Hunter and who came after so just change the subject because you don't know would you talking about in that regard. You're wrong there and the leading the union well desk. You're talking about the union. You brought up to you you build onto the union. He wants to leak hunter was executive director of the Union but I can't think of anybody in the Lindy. Can you tell us who's in the League at the table. No no I couldn't I mean you have more tatum. WHO's the deputy commissioner of the NBA okay so you've got that going? Go on but that's the only name that I could really really give you of substance as it pertains to an African American in that position. That's true okay so last report on that issue. Are we raise immortal race imboden American fencer Neil so who says we're stopped kneeling you got he was at the Pan Am Games. He's okay then feel. We need to stop Neil well. That was what Jay Z. said but ten seconds earlier. He said he wasn't against any kind of protests. People people are free to do what they WANNA do and he doesn't have a problem with it. He said that ten seconds earlier clearly. If I paraphrase we're done when he said that afterwards he said another word. It's time to go an act more than just neely so it wasn't like he was trying to say an articulated particular position. Don't kneel anymore. He was saying okay now what he just said it wrong and let me give you some Kudos. You're doing a great job. You're you're a coworker was on a flight with me from Philadelphia Orlando Coaches team. You say when it was your turn to come up when you came up. Everybody Room said no not him but the boss at that time said if you guys don't want them. We want to even eight bit so that's the Kudos from right that that was what I said on my interview with Michael K on center stage on yes network Tim Legler Echo. Tim Leg was one of my buddies. I appreciate that but I gotta go. Thank you for the call. Take care of yourself. Will you live Stephen. They what's up. Steven is first of all appreciate what you said about the empty. Aa I am sick and tired. Hey you're the NC double a. and their hypocrisy and let me let me get to Dad Bo missed a dad. Bo Swing talking about his mouth saying that he would quit if players got paid the reason why he makes ten million dollars a year. It's called progress. Even everything around these players is progressing. The revenue is generated is more than ever and nothing's it's changing forties players and landscape around is changing but they want the players will remain stagnant hold our money home first of all. I don't recall dabbles really saying that but if he did say that clearly he's lying because Dabo Sweeney and about to give up nine and a half to ten million dollars a year just because players being compensated. I don't believe that for one second secondly. I think that you have a lot of coaches that don't want to inherit the problem of players getting paid because remember everybody's right he's not going to be equal and thus it would be incumbent upon them to get into the mix and decide who deserves to be more compensated than the other and that's not a problem problem they want to deal with. They WANNA coach football teams or coach basketball teams. They don't WanNa be the ones to decide okay. This play is this so he gets paid this play. He is not so good. He's ride the bench.
