This is just a culmination of so many years of being a Brownsville we file 18 years later we get into the playoffs and then look what happens. We're not allowed to have nice things as browns fans.

He's perfectly fine, absolutely no symptoms. Are Pro Bowl left guard, one of the best in the game. Joel. But Tonio Offensive line. Very important special going against that Pittsburgh defense. He's out. I'm just waiting on the shoe to drop and tell me Baker's got it. Oh, God, don't do that man. Know at this point, I am NFL has no plans to cancel the game unless they say there are further outbreaks within the team. In which case the NFL has an option to delay the Super Bowl up to four weeks. So no kidding. The way this is going this is I had no idea. This is real. Yeah, they could be marked in March. The end of a first of March. They Yeah. They have a four week window there where they can move around the game. Okay. I guess it makes sense. And let me tell you something. If this was Kansas City, if this was green Bay Oh, you got it. They would delay the game. They push it back a week. So if it was Tampa Bay with Tom Brady, they would absolutely like Super Bowls being held in June this year, so we'll see how this goes, but it is the most brown's thing ever to have happened. You know what I think? If you ask the Steelers now, look, they're competitors. All of them are competitors. I think they'd rather have a set full four. I think you are correct, man. I'm serious like they're like, No, we need to play it again. I don't think they would do that. I really don't. And quite frankly, if you were on that team if you're on the Steelers squad, and you are caught saying that, you know Nope. They gotta play hurt, You know, blah, blah, blah.

Josh for me is Kevin's to fan ski. If he is Cove it and you you even mentioned if he doesn't have any symptoms. Why can't he be off site? You know, doing the coaching Forget about that. Even if he has symptoms. I get not being on site, whatever they sue, contagious to be around people, whatever. But he should be able to who came up with the rule that if you're out because of covert protocol that you can't be part of the coaching That goes on. That's the stupidest thing ever. He can be involved in game planning with them this week, and that just during the get the three hours or whatever I would say that Stupid If I had my druthers, why Kant's to fancy get his own private box in the stadium have EEG alive vantage view up there and radio in the play calls because that's what he's done all year.

You're throwing these guys into positions I have been and then old, by the way, they have to juggle things like time management, when or when not to throw the challenge flag all these different things that he has handled all year. Now he's gotta hand them off in the biggest game the Browns have had in 20 years. It's what happens got punch. So what happens if they just go ahead and kind of do it anyway? On the down low? Yeah. I mean, there would be a footprint. You know, there would be a Bella checking the Patriots could get away with it. Why can't we get way with it? Well, and you know what?

I hope somehow some way, man this gets figured out. And you know what? I wouldn't be upset if we had to. Wait. I really wouldn't because I didn't want to watch the damn thing at 8 15.

Welcome to say good morning to Tara Morgan from ABC six. Tara. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Good morning, and I'm sorry. Why here that we are the cause of you waking up the dogs, too. So my apologies. Well, actually, they're still sleeping. OK, so Hey, I also want to let those they're listening. Know that you have done such tremendous work with the with your stories and police. So much so that the Rush Limbaugh show has had your stories on his show. So I mean, you're like, famous legit now, Tara. Wow. Well, I don't know what to say. So let's talk a little bit about this new way and how police are a little irritated at least the street police with with this guidance now what's going on with city of Columbus and the police? Yes. Over the weekend, I started getting messages from sources about how officers were upset with this directive that was revised Friday. It's dated back. It was first in a sexy back in 1987, and it was a ripe, revised Friday. And so, basically, this is officers giving summons or citations in lieu of making an arrest and these for these air for nonviolent misdemeanor crimes. So things like Trespassing or theft. And so the officers Are upset They have to request a summons from the prosecutor's office. On day also have to call their supervisor if they want to make an arrest, so they feel like their powers are being stripped away. Yeah. Tara Morgan from ABC. Six years reported there with these ready of 16 W TV, and I was reading in your story tar that the city attorneys that Klein says that you may not be arrested in the 1st 24 hours before the court process begins. I'm just a little baffled here like it's just seems like there's Extra non needed red tape here that makes the job harder. Well, he was I mean, I asked him if it would bog down his office said it wouldn't And he says that this is something that would show accountability in his office. But thing is, sources are telling me that officers don't trust his office. They don't trust That they would Evaluate the summons requests appropriately or support the officers who are making these discretionary decisions. So there's a trust issue going on. Of course, the force there is. I mean, I can't imagine why. So what? Ah have did this? So this just started that this was just implemented? Yes, yes. Few days and any go ahead, sir. Go ahead. I was given an example of this puts it into some perspective for your listeners like I was told by the F O P. Brian Steele that he, you know, say someone is trespassing in a Starbucks. And typically on officer would go there and ask the person believe it. If they refused to leave, then they would make an arrest will now They just have Tio request the summons and go on to the next call. So There you have it with, you know, From what? I understand the business still having a deal so dumb question, And and I know where we don't work in law everyday, Tara, But how long does it take to request a summons? How does that work? You know, from my understanding they have to contact they have to contact their supervisor who reviews The paperwork, and then they submit. So I You know, I wasn't given a real time bringing them how long that would take. Wow. It just sounds like you know that climb was saying that, you know. People. It's not like these They don't show up to court. Then they're going to get an arrest warrant anyway, so So eventually it'll happen. It may happen, he said. The move apparently is in line. Apparently, this is another major cities to a lot of major cities. They're moving in this direction. Yeah, That's what he was saying the other day that this is something that other major cities, he says. Satan has been doing it for decades. So this is something that they have been falling in line and bottling. There. A decision on this after Dayton on what they were doing. All right. Interesting. We'll be keeping an eye on this.

Joe Biden continues to lead President Trump in Arizona after the latest ballot count, fighting ahead by more than 14,700 votes. Meanwhile, U. S attorneys have been given the go ahead to go after what Attorney General William Barr calls substantial claims of voting and vote counting irregularities if they find them.

TR NEWS Arizona votes It doesn't matter your party your point of view, we could save tens of thousands of lives. If everyone would just wear a mask. Joe Biden talk about his plans to fight covert yesterday he's moving forward under the assumption that he will move into the White House in January. I don't thinkit's assumption he holds alone. I think the majority of the country believes he will be moving into the White House in January. Meanwhile, team Trump has filed election lawsuits in multiple states, including here in Arizona and got a boost. One attorney General Bill Bar gave federal prosecutors the green light to begin investigating allegations of voting irregularities across the country course. Then the guy who investigates election fraud for the Department of Justice, then decided to resign overnight. Remember there are no allegations of fraud. Here in Arizona. The lawsuit America. Oppa County alleges that poll workers made mistakes and realistically, there's not enough mistakes to change the outcome of the presidential race here, but you know what? Let the process play out. But I believe that's so because President Trump's still trails Joe Biden, Arizona by a little fewer than 15,000 votes with a little more than 60,000 ballots that have yet to be tabulated, But they have not been going necessarily the way he needs them to go. As far as a percentage goes the The vast majority have been going for Trump, but not at the knot at the amount he needs so far, and about half of those that have yet to be tabulated or here in Maricopa County. Course. The race called by Associated Press are for Biden in the other big race has been following the U. S Senate, which was called over the weekend. Mark Kelly has I just like using the world an insurmountable 80,000 vote lead over Republican Senator Martha McSally, although she's yet to concede now, Kelly Could be sworn in as early as the end of the month. Remember all the other people who have won their Senate races will be sworn in in January. That's because of the specialness of this U S. Senate special election we just held. He won the race to complete the final two years of the late Senator John McCain's final. Two years final six year term. So this is the last two years of that six year term. So when you consider he has just two years before he has to run again. He'll have to be the moderate ish, independent ish senator that, he said he's going to be in his campaign ads, and I think that's really who he is, or at least wants to be. But, you know, being a freshman senator, like like I've been one that you've been with being a freshman US center could be a pretty tough position to be in because all you have to do is remember what happened to Democratic Senator here Stian Cinema from Arizona. When she was a freshman, she stood and clapped for something that President Trump said in his state of the Union address, and the Democratic senator sitting next to her, said something like you better watch your Behind. But because Kelly will be up for re election in two short years, he'll have to pay attention to Arizona and saying You better watch your Senate votes. Well bless piece of history. I want to talk about in this election, and we'll be talking about how historic this election is for years to come, though, because you know we'll have our first two Democratic U. S senators from Arizona since the fifties. But this this is pretty cool. Maricopa County voters decided that Republican Maricopa County Attorney Alistair Del will be the first woman to be elected to the office. The county attorney is the top prosecutor for those who are new to Arizona. It's our version of a district attorney. And it is historic, but not as historic. If you're new to Arizona that you might not know we've elected more female governors than any other state ever, right? So we have had Ah lot. I mean, we are leading the nation. When it comes to the number of women we have put In major offices from secretary of state to governor too. I mean seriously, It's very, very encouraging. I mean, I just want the best person. I'm one of those that the best person for the job, but it is nice when women are considered right, you know, absolutely, you know, and I think she's going to do a great job. I just hope she gets a chance to do this job to the best of our ability because this is what I thought was very sad. Her campaign put out a statement saying, We're humbled in incredibly grateful to the voters of Maricopa County for electing Alistair Adele is county attorney because she really couldn't say it for herself right. She's still in the hospital after an election night. A trip to the hospital into emergency surgery, so just hoping and praying that she gets better and better quickly, 7 19 now time for detoured.
