The Fate of College Football's 2020 Season
"Ridden Berg thank you for taking a little bit of time after what is zoom is an incredibly chaotic day to chat with me. GREAT TO BE WITH IT'S A. Very historic and like you said wild and crazy time right now in college football, we figure out whether there'll be a season if there is who way. Adam Ridden Berg is scrambling to cover college football including the big ten. conference. For ESPN. Adam I want to start by rewinding a little bit actually from your perspective. What last week looked like because as a Friday, it kind of looked like we were GonNa have some college football. There was this path moving forward on that front and so if you had to make a chart. Of how things stood last week of who is in who is out who was on the fence for actually playing college football what would that chart have looked like? It's like an optimistic chart going back to two marsh but certainly even last week I still felt fairly optimistic about the possibility of a season. We had Yukon that announced on Wednesday that they weren't gonNA, play but they're independent. They're not connected to these television contracts like others are even these these group of five. Leagues. And then Thursday into Friday. He was hearing from sources around the sport that, Hey, this Mac meeting that was on Saturday in the mid American conference that was to be significant. That, there was a chance that at least one school was not going to play and others might be in the same boat and the whole league might decide at that point to postpone the fall season and football. It Yo it became clear that we were heading a lot closer to a you know a national postponement or at least a large groups of the College Football Leagues deciding not to play this fall. And so Adam you and I are talking at about six Oh five pm eastern time right now on a Monday so. What happened today and it will I guess what was the first thing that happened today on your feet? Well, again a lot we reported ESPN and others that the the big ten presidents were strongly leaning towards postponing that was on Sunday, and then you're the news that broke overnight was significant that this crash tag we WANNA play movement From Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Justin fields of Ohio state. Some of the most prominent players in college football were getting real traction I mean this is your became the number one trending topic on twitter for a little while that was sort of the big story overnight and then today it's just monitoring. You know what's going on in the big ten. There's been reports that they've already canceled. That's not a at least as this recording that's not true. The Mountain West. Late, this afternoon did decide to postpone their seasons. So that's the second FBI's conference after the men American to decide not to play football and other sports this year. and You specifically cover the big ten that's your beat, and that's the conference. Everyone seems to be waiting to see what move comes next. So what exactly as we speak now is happening with the big ten this evening. Right. So it appears that the athletic directors are or speaking that's not a huge deal because they talking all the time now in the League but th, there's a sense of when they'll be a formal vote among presidents that hasn't taken place. I haven't heard from many sources that vote among presidents it's imminent but in theory I, it wouldn't take very long for that to take place if the League was ready to move forward with the postponement. So I think the discussions now are regarding timing whether some of the positions have changed around the conference. You've had a number of prominent coaches speak out about their desire to have. A season the big ten Pablo has always been a league. I I've covered it for a number of years that's been largely unified on the big topics and I can't remember a time where you've had a group of presidents that seem ready to postpone for the most part. But then you have many others loud voices in the league like the coaches like the players saying this isn't right. You can't do this. This is a wrong thing to do at this point and so that that's that's a unique spot for a conference has always prided itself on your equal revenue sharing and you're trying to be unified in its messaging.
Cardinals, Tigers doubleheader postponed for 'additional testing'
"Cardinals schedule doubleheader this Thursday against the Detroit Tigers has been postponed. 13th was originally the field of Dreams game against the White Sox, which had been pushed to 2021. The double header that was rescheduled for that date was postponed, Major League baseball says because quote it's prudent to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play.
Power Five conferences consider cancelling 2020 football season
"It stands right now I mean this is what we're looking at right at this very moment that it doesn't seem like there's going to be a whole lot of college football this season and so. We're going to talk about the NFL season. Our season preview issue has to hit newsstands tomorrow as it stands right now with a lovely story by Jenny RENTA's on the cover, which is very excited. Very excited to talk to her about that and a little bit but let's just I acknowledge the weirdness of the fact that we have no idea what's going to happen the impact that this is going to have. On the NFL season on, you know they're not going to have college football You know we've seen evaluators already saying that this combine is going to be monumental because you know there might be a ton of kids without any tapeh that you're GonNa get to look at transfers who's leaving early I mean this is going to be I think chaos sort of hitting the funnel right now and everything's about to explode. It seems like the decisions from Yukon and then the MAC conference for kind of the first two moves that really got the ball rolling for the power five conferences to reconsider the season and everything really came to a head on Sunday Nights You had indications that there would be no football season that conferences were meeting to discuss this issue and then you had players saying they, they wanted to be able to play but also would. Hope to unionize, which is another significant development. So it's been a pretty chaotic twenty, four hours for college football, and so then the NFL is kind of moving ahead as scheduled things came to a head I. Think Sooner for College Football for a lot of reasons we've had players who have had. Issues, after testing positive for Cobra had entire teams that had to be quarantined. The NFL right now is in this training camp kind of locked down tight mode it's it's not a bubble obviously, players are going to and from, but it's kind of the normal constraints of training camp, and so we don't really know yet if it will work for the NFL obviously they are in a better. Position Than College football because players are represented by a union that is the big difference here, work working conditions and everything that goes with returning to work in pandemic had been hash out ahead of time, and there were clear protocols in place across the board So we still don't know if it's going to work for the NFL, but they're certainly in a better spot right now than college football. Thought. Teammate. Ross dellinger did a good job of illustrating one of the main issues which was you know there were doctors on these conference calls with the heads of all the power conferences and saying you know their studies that are coming back from Germany that. Percents seventy percent of the people who get the corona virus and their asymmetric and move on still have heart issues you know and that impacts athletes significantly You know I mean if the speed at which your heart beats or the size of your heart or whatever's going on there I mean that significantly impacts someone who doesn't aerobic sport right and who has to worry about you know. All their conditioning and all that kind of stuff and how the heart's pumping and all that kind of stuff and so I it blows my mind that we've gotten this far already down the down the road with the NFL, where in everyone just kind of looking over at college football now and saying Jesus is going to be us and it's hard not to think that it will be right i. mean the NBA seasons kind of plotting along? I mean there's Some little signs of positivity here and their Major League Baseball seems to be you know stumbling and then recovering stumbling and then recovering but I mean, we really going to have such a better idea about this and three or four weeks than we do now at I really don't know. Yeah. On what you raise is such an important point that we don't have all of the answers on the long term impacts of covert and that's why it was so silly earlier. This offseason, the people discussing like, Hey, it's a competitive advantage of athletes. Get it. Now, they don't have to worry about getting in the fall when first of all, we don't even know how long the you would have immunity from getting the virus, and then secondly, we don't know the long term impacts on the body, and as you mentioned the research coming back as indicated that for some people, it can be severe and long lasting and we know impacts the circulatory. System has neurological impacts. Those are very serious beyond just a simple virus that you get over. So it was never a binary thing where you either have a, you know a fatal outcome or a mild case. There's a lot of outcomes in between and I think for college athletes especially who are eighteen to twenty two years old who are not getting paid who are not professional athletes making this decision who also have school to deal with there just are. A lot more considerations at play and I. Think once you had conferences saying we're stopping play because we believe that it's safe. Then it really put the pressure on the other conferences I think to say, well, you know we can't make the claim that it's safe. Other conferences are saying it's not
Who is Alex Cintrón, the Astros hitting coach who instigated brawl with the A's?
"Brawl in baseball yesterday. Ramona Reynaud went right after Alex Cintron, who is the head coach for the Houston Astros, And this whole thing was bizarre to Maine. We know that there is a beef between the athletics and the Astros. Mike Fires used to pitch for the Astros was on the on the athletic still is on Lorraine. Oh, gets hit twice in the Siri's that the 2nd 1 I didn't see the first of the 2nd 1 was not intentional. But he was walking to first base is so John boy pretty much tryingto figure out what was going on. And I guess Laredo was trying to tell the picture had to throw the ball. Cintron asked, get suspended from saying his name correctly, If now I apologize, but the bench the hitting coach has to get suspended, has to get a lengthy suspension. Because he is basically egging on Lorraine. Oh, who's at first base? And it was gutless. What the hitting coach did he goes? Oh, yeah. You come over here You come over here. The guys 41 years old, if this is not A 60 70 80 year old heading coach. This is not who is the Mets pitching coach? That's your Phil Regan. This's not him or or the late. Great Don Zimmer with Pedro Martinez, where you see potentially an older person get thrown to the ground. That was not this. This a 41 year old yellow Nazareno basically, Tom come over and fight him, and he did the ultimate Gutless move off. I'm going to tell you to come fight me. But the minute when you take a step forward three for my players are going to step in front of me. And then I'm going to become Mr Hold me back, bro. Type of guy. That's the worst person in a fight. Someone that instigates the fight and then doesn't throw the punch and doesn't actually fight when someone comes charging at you because of you just being ridiculous in the dugout. That guy doesn't get popped if Joe Kelly gets it with what it was an eight game suspension. If this is it, the heading coach here for the Astros doesn't get At least eight games, then that's ridiculous. Albay have no clue how to figure this out. They'll mess it up. Did you agree with that? Then we have a heading coach, basically telling Laredo to come over and fight him. Or Laureano. Excuse me. To come over and fight him. And then he lets what 34 of his players take care of it that was weak. Yeah, it's weak and it's like extra dumb when the league is begging you not to have a bench clearing altercations, and then you instigate won as a coach, not even a player for seemingly I don't even understand the reason. And it even begins. So, yeah, you would think he's going to be in big, big trouble, too. We

Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League
"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.

Trump Executive Orders Target TikTok, WeChat Apps
"President of the United States signed two executive orders Thursday under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and a couple other justifications forbidding transactions with tiktok owner bite dance, and any transactions with ten cents related to their super. APP We chat. Each of these orders takes effect September twentieth. You might recall Microsoft has until September fifteenth to reach a deal to buy some or all of Tiktok from by dense. So there's a little bit of a gap there between win Microsoft's deadline is and when this executive order takes place. So that's the first thing to remember is they didn't ban the APPS they banned transactions with the companies which could cause apps to disappear and it doesn't happen until. September twentieth. So there's forty five days to figure out how this is going to work. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross will identify which transactions will be considered prohibited under the order. So that's going to change a lot of people are looking at the tencent order and saying, well, wait could this band transactions with other ten cent industries and so that will be important for the the definition from Wilbur Ross to decide is it really just we chat? The use of the emergency act is generally applied to terrorism or sometimes international trade and will likely be challenged in court. In fact, tiktok is pretty much said it's going to do that. The order claims the APPS access to user data including location browsing messaging payments, and search histories. Quote threatens to allow the Chinese Communist Party access to America's personal and proprietary information potentially allowing China to track the locations of federal employees and contractors. Bill dossiers a personal information for blackmail and conduct. `corporate espionage. This is considered in both cases, a threat to national security foreign policy and the economy of the United. States. So there's the justification they're going to have to find out in court. While, the order against we chat is likely to be narrow if it's not. It could affect ten cents non we chat businesses. In fact, some companies may just out of an abundance of caution decide to back off ten cents non we chat businesses just in case. And Ten, cent owns riot games, which makes League of legends they wholly own it. It's there's. Ten cent is also an investor in spotify snap. Read it.

Unikrn CEO Rahul Sood on Esports Betting, Cryptocurrency
"I have to imagine most of our audience has heard you to court at this point whether it was through the Mark Cuban investment ties to crypto currency, the websites, great content or the eastwards betting explosion. It can be hard to keep up with you to court at times you're doing so many different things. The company said Classic Eastwards. Headache has traditional sports. Offerings has ways for people to wager against their Fred has ways for Gabor's to bet on themselves by you. Mode at creates simulated competitions for potential wagers I know I missing some things even that log list what I miss about you accord that else that the companies also offer. well, I mean, look at you pretty much summarized that we are. We were at a sports entertainment platform. Basically, what we're building is the future of entertainment wagering like When you think about wagering in general, there's is various areas is. There, there's like casino bedding. There's. There's. Your typical physical location, you walk into a casino and you go to a slot machine and you do something they're on. So Las Vegas Type Entertainment, all of that is changing. and then there's like sports betting what does the future sports betting look like an online book making look like? An and Unicorn is effectively using east sports in video games to create this this new era of betting because people who play video games and who are into. East. Sports are not just you know they're not kids. They're they're getting older and you know people like myself who who's in. My mid forties. I love to play Games and I I love to bet on sports and so we're sort of building the future of this face definitely people betting on video. Fares log as video games have existed I. Certainly have bet ever since I had some money in my pocket, I was putting it down challenging by Fred's various video games being Iraq cade or back the Gabe Q. OF NFL street. If feels like a pretty natural expansion of what video games are, can you talk a little bit about? The ways that you give gamers a chance to better themselves so unique. Eastwards. Betty massive thing. I'm here base of us. Vegas. We've got monuments to the value of bedding. But. What does that intrinsic nature of betting that is provided by you modes of UNICORD's thanks. How is the company capitalizing on that? Shirt. So look you know when when you think about the different types of betting, there's there's essentially three different types one of the spectator wagering, which is like ords betting where you're betting against someone or not against your betting on a match on an event that's happening that you're watching. So for example, you're watching club nine versus whatever fanatic or whoever it is you. Can you can watch match and you can place a bet on it just like you can watch traditional sport, the seahawks versus the raiders place that on that that's spectator wagering and we do that we do that really well Then there's the skill bedding staff where where you can now bet on yourself in a video game on a game that you love to play. And no one's been able to solve this away Unicorn has The way it works is let's say you play a game fortnight or League of legends or Doda you can connect your favorite video game to the Unicorn Platform and we give you odds on yourself So you're basically instead of you betting against me met you're betting against yourself. Are you betting against the house really and you're betting on yourself and and we give you odds for you to be one of one hundred for example, in Fort Night and you can go and you can bet any can play that and that's considered a skill Within those two categories, we have different types of offerings that are very unique to Unicorn. So for example, on the spectator side, we have streamer betting where you can watch streamers and you can place bets on your favorites beamers. It's very cool. We also have virtual east sports where you can watch virtual matches twenty, four, seven of East sports and bet on those. and. Then on the skill side, we have you mode as you mentioned where you can connect your favorite video game the platform bet on. Yourself. Against the House but we also have money match where, for example, you can create a a game of NBA two K. or madden or something and then challenge someone on the Internet and and then just just bat and play. It's very cool. And then, and then the third type of betting is is casino betting, which is your traditional Casino Games. So you up those three. Unicorn has the most most breadth. of N depth of anybody in the space, we've really spent the last six years building building this out, doing it in a legitimate way doing it with full regulation mind I just thinking about where the future of of betting entertainment goes I. Think we built some some big value in the brand on and the company in the platform and is this next year is going to determine where that goes.

Now, a melancholy trails today Anderson the great sports columnist of the New York Times died today at eighty. Nine years old. Dave Anderson is one of only four sports columnists in American history to win a Pulitzer prize. I worked with David the New York Times, and I know I speak for generations of sports writers. When I say he was the kindest, most generous of us all when you were new to the beat and Dave met you for the first time, even if you didn't work for his paper, he asked if there was anything he could do you anyone he could introduce you to. He was a great and gentle man. I know this firsthand.

"It's just everyone feels because they're giving your body your soul, everything about it. You'd think that you built the team Earl probably feels like I built the Seahawks. I know there's others, but I'm one of the mount Rushmore of the Seahawks I did this. You respect me and when you don't respect me, it just so personal. Nobody ever leaves the game, happy or respected, and no one in the middle of their if they don't get the contract, they want. Everyone probably feels at that time. But that's when you got you got to rise above it. He let it. It's like watching your Ferrari and you're, you park the car and you come out in the morning and there's oil over the place. It's like, yeah, you're Ferrari, but you leaking oil bro. You can't get it. It's not gonna help you in the long run teams don't wanna see that you gotta be bigger than it. I'm gonna press my look defense for one more question Khalil. Mack has been so great so far that the word, the letters MVP have come up as a quarterback. Did you ever think defensive player got guys? You played against LT singled Terry. Reggie. White you ever think offensive player could be the most valuable player in this league? I think it's possible. It's so hard to be the most valuable player on the field when you don't punch the football. But if you're thought of in that way without touching the football that is pure dominance. That's why you can only say two or three guys and three or three plus three generations of football clinic qualified and of Khalil Mack can start can start that conversation that tells you how dominant you need to be to be in the conversation. I tip my cap to Cleal MAC as well. We'll get you out of here on this. Is there anything in particular you'll be looking for tonight when the colts play the patriots? Well, two things come to mind. First of all, I loved watching Andrew lucked, throw the football in college. I told you guys, I had season tickets at Stanford over and I just beautiful. I mean, it was like a piece of art and I just sit there and stare them like, how does he do that? It was amazing, and it's a beautiful thing. He's got a shoulder injury and he's not throwing it the way he did is that. At eighty percents eighty five. It's not ninety five one hundred. I hope it gets there tonight. One key I'm going to watch for is can he'd drive the football? Like hasn't a best because you know, you come up with shoulder surgery. I think it can get better. I want to get better. It better get better. And I'm hopeful that tonight. And the other thing is Tom Brady at forty. One taught Michael Tony. He needs to start showing it. You know this pliability and green drinks and everything. It's like one forty one. I can't. I can't take it anymore. Some show me aside forty one. I just wanna see it. He's not forty one. Thank you. He's not forty one. Thank you as always the pleasure cross. Thank you funded me with. Let's take one last week still just come. Does Nick Sabin have a legitimate beef with Alabama students? Vancouver could not smart. The ban their players from fortnight. Everyone is smart Tea, Banh anyone from fortnight. Do you even know what this is about to know? Sounds too.

"I look like really all of fame quarterback Steve, meet those people. Some people might say, I'm very grateful to hear the. Let's start with Pat Mahomes who has received almost universal praise. Are there any vulnerability so far that you see that you think his opponents can take advantage of Tony? I spent the whole, I I don't use. I usually go back in the truck and watch some of the game, but I just sat on the sidelines just wanted to see the kid. I wanted to feel what I ended the game, and I said to myself what I saw tonight he can replicate for fifteen years. I don't know. There's got to grow. He's going to have to face adversity. There's going to be bumps in the road. He's going to run out of. He's not going to have as much tolerant of at times. You won't get the protection here and there, but I just some guys, I think have those tools that that that are, you know, you see over a period of time. It's not just a flash. It's not Dak. Prescott had first big year and then he couldn't. You know, he's got a gain some momentum. I just, I just felt like this kid has a factor that the force and the Star Wars the forces with this kid. I gotta feel we'll stay with quarterbacks and go to Arron Rogers. They more established quarterback than Pat Mahomes. Obviously, some people felt he was taking shots at Mike McCarthy's game plan on Sunday. You were a quarterback is publicly calling out a game plan. Anything that you felt comfortable doing? I my game, my play callers were Bill walls, Mike Holmgren, Mike Shanahan mardi Morgan, Steve Mariucci like I had guys, and I remember with Mike, Shannon said to me, Steve, I'm gonna call plays and you protect me. And so I loved that the, you know, just like symbiotic relationship with like he trust me so much that he's going to go crazy and I protect him on calls that aren't so good. I love that relationship might McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers have had a tense. Relationship. It's always been that and teeters between creative tension. I call it and toxic tension, and there's moments when it gets into toxins. And then it comes back and it's creative. I think in the end you can see that they've done played great music together. The fact that it bleeds into the public you, that's when you get a little bit nervous because that says, you know, I'm so frustrated because they know better. You know, it's a quarterback if you're going to say publicly, that is a sign that I am. I'm I'm raising the Defcon five and I don't want an end that Hoxha creativity. That's when you have trouble. And that's when teams devolve when there's toxic tension, you gotta watch that very closely. All right. I'm the one on this show always has to insert defense into it at some point, Tony, never would Steve. You ever feel like flipping off the sideline, your own sideline. Earl, Thomas thing ever feel that way. Michael, you know, everyone's frustrated. Everyone feels underpaid, no matter what it is..

"In other words, if that works for the patriots, even with their defense being bad this year, I will back away from my gloomy pay. Four thirty one ten. How about that? Okay. All right. We gotta deal with some thuggish hockey behavior for the second straight day. Tony, you're capitals after raising their first championship banner last night here in DC. I've really excited about that. Oh, awesome. The capitals had their way with the big band Bruins to the tune of seven to nothing, but that seventh goal and the subsequent celebration. So agitated Bruins, tough guy, Brad Marsh, and then he went after a non fighter. You boy LARs Eller. Yeah, pushed him in the face several times Dane with afterward quote, his celebration was unnecessary, so I just let him know that was cool. That's a great quote on quote, and as a result in each else should do to Marsh. Okay. So there's got to be a little bit of context here in the sense on this show. The irony that yesterday we dealt with a commercial commission by major league baseball, which which tries to say gin rigmaroles, get rid of some of these unwritten rules like the bad flip. So in this particular. Case the waving at that point violates the unwritten rule of, no, don't flip the bat and hockey. Don't celebrate too much by the other guys, you know bench in hockey. The context is this. They've just raised a banner. They won the Stanley Cup. They just won this game seven. They had two goals while I had my head in the refrigerator in the first minute, and they had two goals in this game. I think Marshon totally overacted. What do I think will happen? They set Wilson out Tom Wilson, Tom. Linka games twenty. At twenty at the end. Of thugs behavior, get rid of the funds, thin ice cereal rent play RCN into five times for bait and Wilson has been suspended. Okay. Also, we defend yesterday. No, I don't feel more sent out for twenty to twenty five. If you want to get rid of fighting, you wanna get with a thug. They they get rid of it. They don't want to get into the league was he? They wanted to fighters to go together. I didn't if you'll give twenty one in the colts game where I'm gonna take the under on twenty on this. That's the one I'm saying you people didn't think we could go all week without Jimmy Butler. Did you the typical to guard who told Wayne into soda? He had no interest all reaching for them and gave them a list of other teams that he would play for? Well, guess what? He's still finds himself in Minnesota. His coach there, Tom fiddle still wants and ancient lows and rouse give ESPN now says, Butler doesn't plan to miss any regular season games. So we'll von. Could he play from Minnesota?.

"Way that they took the brave seriously because the Braves were in the rebuild a little bit longer and they got a not necessarily an MVP become able to great player in FREDDY Freeman that he's the guy that everybody knows. Yeah, look, I think I think that's the reason. I think the dodgers are better club, not just the more glamorous club but a better club. But you're crazy to overlook Atlanta. Because they were all year long. Maybe they would go in the pace of the tortoise, but they went steady the whole time thinking about the dodgers. And I been sort of rooting for the dodgers Tony when when the cubs are out of it. They are so mercurial. I mean, we pay a lot of attention on this show and others when they get hot and they will six out of seven. I got honestly auto took him so well, here's how I one hundred. They have streets that go the other way and they lose five in a row and they lose six out of seven, and they have those periods. And I don't know whether they're hot streak is over the when they got them including the single game, playoff the division title is that over and are they ready to take a dip? It's tough to the last year and this year and when they are good, they seem to me to be much better than every team in the National League. Are you concerned at all that Kershaw will not pitch game one? Do you wanna throw him into game one because I would not. They've learned their lesson. I think the dodgers have seen Clayton Kershaw on short risks, including at the hand of my Cubbies, get his butt whipped in the postseason a couple of times and they stopped at stupidity life and near. Now we'll feeding Clayton Kershaw the way he should be. I think there's a greater lesson lesson. He'll go sixth grade and be. On the seventh or he'll go five greatly better than the sex. Don't be afraid to take him out. Don't leave the other than that's imported less from both are needed to be learned. What was once the greatest rivalry in the AFC will be renewed tonight, the colts and the patriots, though it has been a dud lately, the colts heaven beaten, the patriots in their last nine tries Angelakas personally, Owen five against them, in fact, looks worse stats against any team come against the patriots. But last Sunday luck threw for four hundred sixty four yards and four touchdowns we'll which Andrew lucked you think we'll see tonight. It doesn't matter whether we see Andrew luck or John United s- with that uniform and helmet on the patriots to whip their butts and the patriots have on the field at the same time, something they don't get the Tom Brady doesn't get off it. He has element and you gronk out there. The patriots got tired of hearing after two weeks what they weren't. They went out there and just throughout the team last Ed theme, that's okay. Dolphins dolphins were undefeated at the time. If you're a good thing, the Indianapolis Colts gonna go down and they're going down hard and you know. So let me get to the game the edleman and gronkowski thing, which is interesting. The last time they were out there together. There's a great stat week, twelve of the two thousand sixteen season. Yeah, which means the patriots have been a two Super Bowls without them both on the field together. I differ from you in this regard. When I looked at the number today that it was Indianapolis plus ten. I thought that was an enormous number ten points. You think this is a creek here? Well, it doesn't matter the patriots are going to beat what you said. Was a betting man and that drove with you out to your other state of Delaware community. We can sit down and we could make a bet, and I would take the patriots tonight plus twenty two my stammering or Steiner's twenty. When I say plus to just the patriots are going to win this game by three touch to my point out. One thing what I have offense, it's not a gated community. It's not it's not a gated to me to try to cry savory drama out of the know when I've seen and gronkowski being on the field at the same time, maybe the launching pad..

In today's episode, Julian Edelman is bad, Brad, Marchand, jaws laude, and Jimmy Butler, and they'd played from Minnesota after all. Like I said, we begin today with the result major league baseball wanted last night, the Yankees eliminating the as in the wild card game. This means MLB connect sale because the number one drawn sport will be on display for as many as five games. We'll on the Red Sox have eight more wins than the Yankees and home field. Are you? Sure they have the advantage. They have the advantage. It doesn't mean they'll win. I mean, you want home field in this. You know, my concerns about the top of the Red Sox rotation, say with sail alone, Maceo alone since July because I know what happened to him in September and October, which is nothing. So the Yankees when you see the Yankees hit him out, even when they go to hundred and forty feet like the ones that you know last night, not last night heated far. He hit a DP hit, whatever that he did. Is that your boy says? Yeah, so they both hit them last night? Yeah, but you know what? Tony, they gotta go to the ballpark and they gotta go there as many as four times. So I still think the Red Sox. Five, five, three times? Yeah. Okay. I think the Red Sox were better team. I do, but and here's the, but the judge homerun last night may have changed the whole arc of this. You went crazy over this last night? Yes, because I'm sitting there and I watch it. I didn't have to see. I heard it and said out loud that's out would just hearing it not even seeing it. If you remember with Ron, darling said, does yesterday he called Aaron judge the heartbeat of the team, and he said, if Aaron judge gets hot, that changes everything he's talking. I think he's talking the entire duration of the run. You have two small ballparks here Fenway in Yankee Stadium. By the way, the Yankees were, I think one in six in their last seven at Fenway they got some, Mike. They got judge Stanton both hit it out. They got Taurus. They've got Sanchez, they got, they got guys who combine it out three times a game. They can put down the Red Sox, Tony. So and inspect. I'm saying you could be. The games? Yes. So in those cases, if the top of the rotation for bowl team is not dominant and you get into ten eight, either team, the bullpen is your clear and decided advantage there. I don't think with the scores of these games, home runs flying out. There were going to get to the bullpens and fairly early again, small parks and can bang it. It changes everything that home run that has to be such a boost for judge and his teammates. 'cause they're wondering, can he come back from the injury you fired up? I was. I was. I'm not even the Mets guy. Andrew told, you know, the Atlanta Braves, win the playoffs. I did the team of Ronaldo kunia Ozzy Albee's it might Fulton image there in the playoffs. I knew that and they're in a match of we're so accustomed to seeing with the dodgers, but because the Braves have lost, get this eight consecutive postseason series is like they don't even exist and the dodgers will turn out there famous vents in winning the walkover. So you wanna cop to completely overlooking Abrego because because I'm an ads fan and the NATs collapsed opened the door for the Braves and the NFL east, which is the overlord Phillies too. But we have to fill. Nobody took the Phillies seriously in the.

"And by the way i'm fine with the mound visits i thought that'd be a big deal it's not been a big deal that was a good change so is the intentional walk that's fine too but then nothing nothing nothing you don't really change anything they don't make the game more exciting d h in the national league one hundred fifty four game schedule third three game first round of the playoffs stead of the one game wild card doubleheaders limits on on patriots on a roster these things will make the game a lot better and outside of padding d h in the national league none of dramatic changes and for national and i think the american league has had the had more dominant teams i think a lot of that is because of the definitely factors in it's time no other league did the two divisions hockey basketball football did not separate rules for each league you're playing each every day every day when i hear people are update guys say nationally an interleague i think to myself why are we even saying interleague anymore just just give the scores interleague game every day marlins orioles today every day rockies rangers today nationals bluejays today every day you got to have the same rules it's absurd joe in washington disagrees he's next up on cbs sports radio gel.

"Maybe more than that but guaranteed two of them will not be playing in the american league championship series what does that mean it means you know they might have big payrolls and knock every warded so even when you're my point is this even when you're really good even when you have a really good team it's no guarantee that you're going to get foreign enough to make all that money back that you spent by getting the world series or even the american league champion national league championship series to me if you're a final fourteen you've had a very good year and you probably made your money back with the success that you've had if you're less than a final four team there's a chance if you're a high payroll team that you didn't make your money back so playing the odds and not worrying about winning and losing it's easier to be to not compete and not have that heartbreak then to compete hard and risk the chance that you spent a lot of money and still didn't win and there have been examples in baseball and always will be examples in baseball of teams that spend a lot of money and still didn't win the mets don't want to be one of those and no one can argue that that's still a possibility the spend a lot and still lose it's a possibility but you know what if you don't spend a lot well then you can't lose a lot and i think that's the mets philosophy know we all spend too much even if it goes bad we're not out that much that's not great for the fans but it might be good for the organization we'll wrap it up get you set for hockey coming back on the fan pros know a lot about painting it's why they're called pros but they're secrets out and.

"And so i think actually even though the initial legacy of the players league was that the national league returned to power even stronger than before the american association went out of business various soon after the players league folded mid nationally had really sold supremacy over baseball for a time it wasn't that long later about a decade later that the american league was formed and i think what the players league demonstrated is that there was room for a league like the american league there were opera tunities for at least if not long term short term gain for people who might compete with with the nationally of course the federal league about fifteen years after the the american league emerges as a rival league to to the national league so yeah i think the players league certainly was instructive in that in that regard for investors who wanted to make money that you didn't have to use said in in house your illustrating with your your show and so many other different sports you don't have to get into the big league the major league necessarily to to start making money off of the sport i will as we round third base in and head to home in view here not to strain in analogy but why don't maybe you can give us a little bit of your perspective as to the legacy perhaps of this league it's clear right that not only in baseball but sports generally this issue of the player as labor so to speak versus oftentimes different perspectives and motivations of quote unquote management these are issues that are about as modern and current as they were oddly back in the day have things gotten better or worse there any sort of learnings and door things that can be taken from this very interesting chapter in baseball that are either you know that are applicable today or perhaps being ignored as they say people nor history are doomed to repeat it.
