"Disney resort etcetera and they're going to start training in Orlando Starting July ninth to the, eleventh, awfully tough Mike your golden full-throttle. You're just pounding it every single light also ticket huge break and come back. How perilous is going to be? What's the key for the coaches to get these teams back I really have been thinking a lot about this. I think this is a unique problem for coaches, I think they're going to have to deal with two issues in the NBA there. And I think the NBA is in tuned to it whether it's Gregg. Whether it's Riccar Lyle. But I think you're going to have to really understand. What, is going on in Orlando and you've got to be able to build back trust within your team. I think that's going to be the most critical component I think. Whoever wins the NBA tournament this year. Whoever wins the championship is GonNa be from trust standpoint between the coaches and the players there has to be a mutual trust between them, and the coach has to really rebuild it. It isn't like when they all. All come back. They say okay here we are. Let's just start off again. I I think there's been so much time so much separation. The world has changed dramatically from the time March fourteenth to when they get back at the end of June that you're going to have to build trust, backup and trust within the players is going to be critical, and then I think the hardest thing to do is to convince. When you play in this kind of tournament, conditioning probably matters more than anything. I I think the teams that are conditioned that are willing to go the extra mile to be able to play in the fourth quarter, because there's been such a layoff, that conditioning is going to separate the men from the boys here. There's no doubt and I think the other area. The Third Area I would suggest is how this coach handle boredom because think about this. They're going to be in training camp for three months. They're gonNA stall. Stay in the same hotel. They're all GONNA get tested. They're going to be very limited exposure to the outside world. There's no hey. Let's go down to Miami and hang out at South Beach. Airplane travel if you do that, you're going to be quarantined for two weeks very limited outside eating, so the coach's job is how does he prevent boredom from getting it? How does he prevent them from tuning themselves out and I and I think that's going to be a huge challenge. I think they're going to have to really bond together as a team. And really become one not that they're all. Share the same interest, but they're going to have to. It's GonNa be like a little bit like a high school team, domestic yellow school buses, and just bond themselves together. Yeah, it's like a retreat. I saw people tweeting about. That's hanging a second nothing on the road like not to be indelicate, but a lot of guys live together Oh to have a little fun meet some girls Golden Party I have a few drinks and you're right. That's socializing. Aspect of it's gone. It's literally play the game. Get back, though tell. Maybe some family can be involved, but again you're not. You're not gonNA predinner. There's no socializing. It literally has to. To be all business and I think if it was one month. If you told somebody one month, I just did you to focus on the task at hand. Just play a bunch of games. Get Back, though tell play fortnight. Play some games time. We're all good, but you're right free months. That's going to be a challenge and in some ways. That's a war of attrition. Some of these guys are just GONNA lose it. And it dovetails with your second point, which is conditioning matters eventually you just get bored and stuff you get lazy and start doing other stuff, which isn't again keeping task at hand. Yeah, I think this and I think the other two areas that they're going. Going to really have to focus on is they have to explain to the players? Because we're in such a unique environment, it's going to become a game adjustments I mean there's no travel, so there's no time there's no going home to your family. It's all business right so you know. The and I'm not saying coaches would cheat on this, but there's more time for curiosity. Because what else are you GonNa? Do you're going to go back? Watch the tape. You'RE GONNA. It's a game adjustments now and the and the coaches that can get the players to buy into the adjustments to the change to handle change is going to be really critical. Hey, here's how I think we need. Need to play this. You know we're playing. Phillies play in Boston and Brad Stevens against against a Brett Brown and they adjust to adjust the adjust so that's easy to think you can get that done, but you gotta get your players to buy into it, and that's where I think the number one thing I was ahead, NBA basketball coach, the number one thing I would hit the players with the first day they were back. Is You've got to trust me and we got to have competitive stamina. We have to have competitive stamina. We have to compete on a long-term basis. If we don't have competitive stamina, we will lose quickly because in this environment. It's dog. Eat Dog. And I think how the coaches are able to block out the distractions. Are they going to be really critical? You're going to have to integrate their family life into it. But how do they handle it? I can having lunch with Bobby Knight ballot check and I were sitting there and Bob Knight used to say all the time. You know if I could put these guys in a monastery and just have twelve guys wall. We did focus on basketball. We would have the best team, but I can't. It's kind of a little bit like that now they're going to be able and want. They're going to be almost in a monastery. They're going to have to stay where they are handle it and I think it's really gonNA come down to the leadership of the coach Competitive Stamina Block out distractions how they fight boredom, convinced players, conditioning matters, and then most of all. They've got to build back. Trust your because it's not like. It's march madness at one and done move on like these are still going to be best defy best of seven NBA plasters. That's a grind and rather than I. I have played two games at home traveled a two games that are on trial. Come back later all in one place like that that whole thought of you can't escape. Anybody can escape the goal. It really is going to separate the men from the boys, and we'll just be thrilled to get sports back. It's been a long three months so far be another month, and after we get basketball. OBVIOUSLY NASCAR is back. You have is back PGA. Tour will be back this weekend. English premier league soccer's coming back in about a week, so it's good news is we try to turn the corner? Stay tuned. It's never too early to think about how to win money. And the two thousand twenty NFL season Mike and I break down how the public is betting the NFC south's.

"He's kind of eighty two years old. He's been sequestered in his home through the virus. He's very concerned, but he's got incredible wisdom in terms of this whole movement, and he understands what needs to happen I. Think it's a tremendous, but I think we need more people like that that that speak up and lead us at this time when it's most difficult, empathy is in short supply agree, and that's why everyone seems. Seems to have an opinion before they're actually invested understanding the situation. For example, everyone's saying defined the police. Amelia people get upset, but what does it actually mean? What does it mean in Minneapolis are going to defend the place. You're going to try to repair something that's broken and make it better, and you don't WanNa stereotype people whether police in law enforcement whether it's african-americans. Have to realize situation going on for far too long, and some change has to happen to that end. Make Me Smarter Mike. How is what's happening right now? Time to Steve Jobs is famous. Think different campaign you know when when you go back and I've been doing a lot of research on Steve Jobs for the book because I, Think Steve Jobs is one of the people that could see the non obvious fairly clearly I mean when Steve Jobs came back to his company the. The second time he realized that apple had lost their core identity. He realized that apple didn't really stand for anything and who they are as a company and what they wanted to become as a company were completely different than when Steve Left, and so when he came back, you know he wanted to be able to launch a campaign to really get apple back to the roots of who they were and what we don't realize is is part of leadership is to sell something. That people don't necessarily think they're buying. You Know Walt. Disney sells happiness. Nike sells. You know they don't sell shoes. They sell athletes. They sell being athletic and jobs wanted to sell think different now. The correct terminology of that would be to think differently, but he didn't want that. He fought hard, but the advertisers that I wanted to be able to think different, and when you go back and look at that campaign. You know he's describing what's going on. Here's to the crazy one. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round peg in a square hole. Hole, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. They have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them disagree with them. Glorify vilify am and the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They pushed the human race forward while we may see them as crazy ones, we see genius because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the one that does it and he has a montage of people. For Martin Luther King To. Thomas Edison to Albert Einstein, two million earhart heart, and so his point was. People that use a Mac want to change the world. He wasn't selling gigabytes. He wasn't Sellin. You know storage. He was selling the idea to change the world. Think different, and I think that that's what this movement has to force us to do. Two different. At first I was cynical I, said okay. I liked the fat. People are doing this. But how much can you change? You're talking about you know. Centuries of oppression decades of law enforcement that is faulty whether it's chokehold whether it's a unnecessary. Unnecessary Abuse Racial Profiling Center. Like how can you fix this? Maybe people marching, but you're right I. Look Mlk and I said look at that move, but look what happened. Maybe real change can be created, and that's why optimism stars to follow in. You're right. Jobs clearly was smart with that campaign to show. People were willing to to think outside the margins. When you think outside the box, you can be an innovator and you can really create real change speakers than we've never seen before in real. Real Change, how about this for the NBA?.

"But I will always have empathy for what he went through. And I do believe impacted his ability to evolve as a player has been really interesting for me to like. I've become good friends with Brady Quinn which I would not have guessed what happened. And he's on the podcast like once a week but like I don't think I don't think I really ever truly understood in talking to him more. Just how important it is to like. It's not just the there's so there's so many factors that go into the success or failure particularly of quarterback at the NFL level. It's It's where you go from a team perspective in a club perspective but also a geographical perspective. It's who you're working with from a coaching perspective it's You know what happens to you off the field in those first few years and how you mature and how you change there is the it'd be foolish to say that there is any guaranteed success of anyone. I mean Andrew. Luck is a perfect example. He had landed in a great spot. Had pieces around him for the most part we thought early on he had A. He's well-grounded his father couldn't have asked for a better background coach by John. Jim Harbaugh issues me. Who went on to be a great Nfl Coach for short period. and then just because things happen it doesn't work out like it's just there like you said there's no science to it and I think we sort of lose sight of that when we start slapping the bus label people very quickly. Oh Boy oh boy are you right. you know. These are young men as I said. Some aren't even twenty-one some have never been outside of a very very small town they might have grown up in a small town They might have gone to school at a in a small town area. You know a smaller town area and then you know being with the team I joined the organization when it was in Los Angeles already and then I was with the organization broke the Maas Angeles and up in the bay area. So you're now bringing to a major metropolis metropolis metropolitan area. Someone who may not have ever lived in one and affirmatively does not wish to live in one. I remember having a heartbreaking conversation with a player that we drafted very very very high. Won't name him out of respect for his privacy but he was in tears. I don't WanNa come to a big city. I don't want to go to California. I don't WanNa be almost three thousand miles from my family. And yes he understood the the the tremendous great fortune. He had to be good enough to be in the national football league and yes he was wise enough to understand he would be earning money that others could never dream of earning but he was frightened and so there are those life issues and again. I want to be very careful to say I get. Those are first world problems. There are people that don't have jobs that will never see anything resembling that amount of money. I get it I get it I get it but I also do have compassion for players. Who who were drafted into circumstances? That aren't good for them. But I do want to say that. We buried the lead of the topic. You just raised. Which is at Radi? Queen gets to come on every week and I've never been on before so that isn't that those true I I generally I was like I was wondering we've not had any on. I swear I swear thought we'd had you on and I. I cannot stress enough that I think we're good. You shouldn't feel guilty on. I'll wait till I'm off to cry. No no you should be careful because if you get locked in as a recurring guest. It is an absolute hell scape for whoever forever. Does that just ask Brady? I am curious. Go back to and thinking about the raiders and the drafts and there are plenty of great draft. I don't Wa- Jamarcus. Russell is gets painted as a big bus but there are lots of guys that the organization hit on curious like what an Al Davis is always famous for. Drafting a certain type of player or that sort of the stereotype that gets painted. What was he like leading up to the draft and sort of? What was the process for how he lay things out because more so than many other owners he was he was very much chance on. He was he ran that room he. He ran the draft room. He was hands on is a very delightful way to put it because it wasn't just hands on sleeves rolled up. I mean he was immersed in it and W- the biggest misconception about out in my view is that you couldn't disagree it would have If that was the case I would have been fired about two and a half weeks into my job So if there's any you know there there. Is this misconception that you couldn't disagree with him. You had to say yes. Nothing could be further from the truth so he welcomed input. He wanted input from the scouts. He wanted input from player personnel people. He wanted input from coaches now ultimately. He was going to make the decision if he chose to do so. There were certainly times he deferred others. There were times he would listen to others but stick with what he wanted to do as was his right as the owner of the business but irrespective of whether he took advice of others and yielded to their desires which he did at times. He listened even when he didn't yield to their desires. My responsibilities on draft day and appointing why. I'm about to share this with you. We're not in the draft room. Of course they were elsewhere in the organization dealing with other team owners. Meaning other owners of the raiders. Not Owners of other teams Sponsors business partners fans ticket holders suite holders dealing with our staff and things like that but there were times we made controversial picks picks up people. You know we just knew we get killed for and I remember one instance in particular. We were going to draft a guy that the media had been saying you know. Oh they're going to draft him. It's the worst decision ever. They should do this. It's just you know on and on and on and on and I was downstairs with some of the team's owners and and Some of the big sponsors and someone comes and grabs me and says L. Needs to talk to you so I randomly phone called up to the draft room and he said to me. We're GONNA take 'em kid we're going to take on and you're GONNA have to deal with you know it's going to be your headache and you're going to have to deal with it. Because he knew I was down there with all these people who would be. Just you know know. What did they do so I don't I? I would have to think back on what his exact words was. Put it basically. He called me to warn me. I'M GONNA do it. I'm GONNA take It's GonNa be a big headache for you. You'RE GONNA have to handle it. Click okay them. And and that's you know he. He gave me a heads up. I think if I'm doing the math right and those are always very very very dangerous words for me because I rarely do the math right on my first try. I think it's the twentieth anniversary of Selecting Sebastian Jankowski roughly twenty years at least and There are a lot of memories associated without as well that was a pick that we made and After we made the picks trump team people came up to me in the building. Coach's player personnel guys scouts. I can't believe we did this. Why did we do this? We shouldn't have done this. And they were wringing their hands and distancing themselves from the decision and then a couple years later when it was evident to everybody how tremendous Sebastian was and what a phenomenal edition to the team. He was funny. How so many of those people were all sudden patting themselves on the back saying Oh boy. We made a great selection. We made a great selection. And I'm looking at them like we. You're the one who told me you hate it. I mean he was playing at twenty eighteen. Like this dude lasted a long time. But he played for the raiders for a long time. He he somehow justified seventeenth overall. I you mentioned dealing with the owners and the business people. I think. That's probably something that goes a little under sold in terms of what happens with an NFL club on draft air at other times the role of CEO. That's not the role of GM like there is a huge business side to it to an NFL franchise. That I think people forget about that. You have when we just the way that we're sort of. It's ingrained in our brains like we think about. You know it's like you look at the the flow chart for us as people from a from afar is like Al Davis this giant picture of Al Davis Atop it like any company shareholders. People he eventually has to answer to in some respect whether it's sponsorships ETC SORTA. Can you walk through sort of just how hectic it is on the undrafted sure and I will say right now that it's going to be very very very different this year for obvious threes and so I'll share with you? What traditionally happens understanding that? It's not going to be the same this year because number one. The building won't be fully staffed. You won't be entertaining. You won't be marketing Things like that but putting this year aside the draft provides for teens tremendous marketing opportunity. There's two there's a few moments during the quote off season close quote and I use quotes because there ain't no such thing as an off-season another topic but you know there's a few moments the draft the signing of big big name free agents perhaps a big trade and then the schedule coming out with the announcement of the schedule that provide teams with tremendous tremendous business opportunities marketing opportunities number one to sell to sell more tickets. If you need to sell more tickets club seats more suites and beyond selling to new purchasers to entertain those who already are committed to the organization and for whom you have to express your appreciation and entertain on a regular basis so You know for example. We had room setup through our sponsors to come enjoy themselves. Room set up for a season ticket holders or suite holders or club seat holders. And then you've got a full marketing staff on hand. People that are making calls to sell more tickets. So more clubs seats sell more suites. You've got merchandise people on your PR staff. Is there your whole video department and Broadcast Department? Is there because you are Filming content to use in shows. You're doing live broadcasts that day. Both radio and television and Internet and PODCASTS. And you your. Your website is constantly updating. And you're tweeting an instagram. I can go. I'll go check and saying smashed. All of that is going on so there was not one department in the organization what people generally referred to as the business operations. That wasn't there with their sleeves. Rolled up all you know. Tuck into what they had to do for sure. And it is crazy you know. You mentioned the the twentieth Universal BE April Fifteenth. So this podcast. We're recording this on on Wednesday April eight just for for the record. We sometimes we beat podcast. Come out later. I live in a weird space time continuum like that but it's nuts to like the two thousand NFL draft which again featured Sebastian Jankowski being taken it also featured. Of course. This guy named Tom Brady being taken by the by the New England Patriots It started on like Saturday at noon. Or maybe it was was it. Was it started Saturday and Sunday? Or wasn't it wasn't I ramble Thursday and it will just like the primetime affairs is. It's it's incredible how much it's grown in twenty years. Well right and I kind of proud that I did the twenty year math correctly and now I will also tell you to math as having spent my entire thirty years in the league almost thirty on the West Coast. Every time I hear someone saying noon I laugh or something whatever time I have to immediately back out three hours. Drafty started two thousand in Oakland. Like four member. I don't go well. Oh in terms of what time we got into the building to start getting ready getting organized. That was five six. Am to get everything ready with the caterers coming and all of the businesses going on. But I don't remember what time the exact draft started but whatever kind of started for you. It started three hours earlier out here. Yeah yeah it is crazy like I first draft was two thousand eleven but for covering it for CBS. And even then it was like a primetime affair in you know You know in in in Radio city musical. It looks like I didn't realize that the the two thousand jobs in the theater at Madison Square Garden is somehow. Don't remember that but I don't remember a whole lot of the early. Two thousands is there is there. Are there any draft memories that you have related to the raiders specific picks or otherwise sort of? Stand out to you know the the Sebastian stands out because As I said all all of the people that I and and I have a very big pet.

Was there really was nothing quite like, the reader mystique and the truth of the matter is coming up here a few weeks, and there would not be a Super Bowl without Al Davis was actually Commissioner of the NFL the old AFL for thirty days in nineteen sixty six they wanted to league merger and the old Commissioner couldn't pull it off. So the owners get Al Davis. They problem up. He organizes his war chest. They start going after all these NFL quarterback. John Brodie Roman Gabriel. Tommy notice a bunch of guys.

Raiders fans, twice abandoned, earn notorious honor
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Raiders fans twice abandoned deserve much better by an Killian. Congratulations raiders fans. It's official. Now, you are the most screwed over fans in American sports. Oh, sure. Others have vied for the title in the past Baltimore had a pity party. For retiring. Cleveland felt abandoned shame with Houston old time New Yorker is still like to talk about when two of their baseball teams laughed Seattle. Still would like an NBA team. Thank you very much. But nobody has it as bad as Oakland Raiders fans screwed over not by one but two generations of the same family, though, that's relatively old news. Mark Davis announced he was going to Las Vegas in March twenty seventeen this week has served only to emphasize the pathetic situation faced by some of the greatest fans in sports history. It looks like Christmas Eve will be the final home game of the Oakland Raiders. The last hurrah for the Oakland fans who. Who have been treated like dirt abandoned twice loyalty? Taken for granted served a terrible product from most of the past two decades duped into believing. There could be a winning farewell tour in Oakland until Jon Gruden arrived and tore down the team. And now, it looks like there might not even be another season to say goodbye, you can blame the city of Oakland for filing the lawsuit against the team this week, and forcing the raiders hand or you can blame Davis and his minions for pulling a tentative agreement to play in Oakland in twenty nineteen off the table in the wake of the lawsuit or you can blame the NFL which has been using Oakland as a pawn for years. What you can't do is blame the fans they've taken it and taken it and taken it. And now they're losing their team. Again. Many of these fans already have lived through this on game days. The Coliseum is full of twice jilted fans. Many of whom have passed on their abandonment issues to a second generation they. Had their hearts ripped out in nineteen eighty two when the team moved to Los Angeles when the team came back in nineteen ninety-five many of those fans despite having sworn off the silver and black came back for their loyalty. They've received just four winning seasons four playoff wins. And a prolonged middle finger if the raiders had been truly interested in staying in the bay area and this goes back to the late Al Davis. They should've negotiated with the forty Niners to build one super stadium to house both teams. That's the only logical proven solution for two NFL teams in the same arket. But Al Davis was opposed and his son inherited that position, which is ridiculous. You think the giants and the jets like each other? No, but they both belong in a New York market just like the forty Niners and the raiders both belong in the bay area. Where will the raiders play next year? Who knows the university of Nevada in Reno is tossed around as a real possibility. That's where the raiders. Is reportedly planned to take their training camp. Once they are the Las Vegas raiders. The raiders could go to UNLV for a year. But that would dilute their glittery arrival in the Vegas market in twenty twenty. Could they go to San Diego for year? Bizarre. San Antonio one of their previous flirtation cities. Also, weird Levi's that would only serve to underscore. How stupid it is that the two teams didn't find a compromise stadium years ago? Cal now Stanford unlikely though the amount of remaining fans might be small enough next year to easily fit into fifty thousand seat Stanford Stadium. Of course, Oakland remains a possibility probably the most likely solution. And how pleasant that would be a year of nasty acrimonious partnership in a building full of dead mice overflowing sewage. And faulty x Ray machines Pittsburgh quarterback. Ben Rothlisberger said the ancient x Ray machines in Oakland didn't work well enough Sunday, which is why his return to the game. Was delayed after a rib injury wherever the raiders play. Their fan base is sure to shrink the enthusiasm was sucked out of this season before it even began because of the trade of Khalil Mack to Chicago the investment in season tickets is too much for so little in return on Sunday. Despite the influx of Pittsburgh fans. The parking lot wasn't quite as crowded for tailgating as it's been in the past. But it was still a great scene generations of fans who've made the drive for years, not only from all over the East Bay. But also, the central valley and farther to play music and grill and hang out and talk raiders. This is our real game one man who's been coming for years said as he poured bourbon for his friends. This is what I'll miss for the most screwed over fans in sports. They were having a pretty good time.
