"Yeah I aged Dylan definitely got some buzz in quite a few Derrick Henry comparisons in the pre-draft process simply because he ran four five at like two hundred fifty pounds i. mean he's got just freakish size speed ability, but I mean you mentioned is yards credit profile? Was not very good. It's not good to be a aback. That doesn't create many yards on his own in his reliant on his offense of line, and that's sort of what Dylan ends. I mean he was number. One in this class Boston college was number. One in this class and yards blocked pretend. In Dylan was near the bottom second from last in the yards, creative pretend he was also last in this tackles forced per attempts You know I really struggled with Dylan because to me. He seemed he just seems like a guy who is always going to get the yards that blocks for him, but not much else. I did not see anything remotely close to what we saw from Derrick Henry on tape at Alabama. I thought I thought Henry had better burst I thought Henry had just enough wiggle to get past. Guys and we've seen that in the NFL. I don't know Dylan has that. Certainly very fast and straight line. Certainly powerful runner can grind out hard yards in between the tackles, but yeah I did not expect to see Taylor go off the board in the second round of the NFL draft and. Definitely a little bit of a perplexing pick because. Jones. Every time we've seen him. He's been. Ripping off strong plays in it's been one of the best. And most talented runners. In the NFL since he's bleak, so I'm not really sure what Dylan's role it's. GonNa be. It's GonNa. Be Interesting it'll be. It'll be interesting to see how many carries. He doesn't actually taking away from her Jones. Our last one for you Graham and again encourage everybody to check out graeme on twitter at Graham Barfield. He is part of the fantasy points crew, and there's a lot of them and we love 'em. You have no Benjamin as our be ten. You have them at the top of tier three right after the aforementioned keyshawn Vaughn I headed. Guys like Antonio Gibson Aj Dylan Josh Kelley, etc.. Yet. Benjamin was dead last in the class at less than three point, five yards created per attempt. How do you? How does that happen? How's IT happened that a guy is so bad at your metric yet you have them ranked higher than these other guys. Yeah I mean I had. I've had so in that article that was before the draft item and rb. Ten I've got away lower now. And I had him in that here with Antonio, Gibson and AJ Dylan..

"In Keyshawn Vaughn just going to the bucks with Brady and what you thought of him. I think everybody's interested in in Vaughan and what's GonNa? What's going to happen with this backfield? I liked what Keyshawn von was was. One of those guys were like I watched the first four or five games, and I was Kinda just like yeah I mean he can do everything pretty well. A, but he doesn't have really wants standout trait in the more that I watched. Actually went back and watched a few more games after I finished has yards credit sample just because they're landing spot? He got drafted a little bit earlier than I expected I kind of started liking him a little bit more. Simply because he played Kinda like camakers, he played on a really bad offensive line. Of there over there, Vanderbilt. Last year twenty two percent of his carries were stuffed pinal scrimmage for a loss that was like way low in college. Football is like one hundred tenth in the in the in the in college football in. He was contacted behind the line of scrimmage on a twenty seven percent of his carries a came makers. Was the most in the class. Use context behind long scrimmage on nearly. A third of carries, but keyshawn von was still very creative granted. It was kind of an boom bust way sort of similar to Tevin Coleman. But he was second in class yards, critic attempts, and the the thing I come back to with Vaughn the Ross in one of the things that I think Ronald Jones has a little bit of an edge over him. Is Is. Joe Is definitely more a laterally allusive. Eighty four percent of keyshawn vons missed tackles came from either just running past a defender or going through them with power. He just doesn't have a ton of wiggle. And ton of agility I think Ronald. Jones is certainly better in that sense, but. Manam Yvonne is. He's got the size. He's got the speed and attacking running style to be a feature back in the NFL and I think. You Know Bruce Arians. Heavily investing in Vaughan, kind of shows you. where he wants to go with his running game. Graham one of the more surprising picks of the NFL draft was of the Green Bay packers well other than than drafting a quarterback in the first round, it was then going back in the second round in the deepest wide receiver draft that we've seen in years and taking a power running back when you can make the argument that the running back position with Aaron Jones and Jamaal, Williams was the strongest on the entire team last year of the strongest position. Position on the packers roster I mean, and then they come in, and they take. Aj Dylan, in the second round out of Boston College, and I know he's a player that you personally struggled with when you were watching him. Matter of fact, you would think that Matt. LEFLORE would probably views him as a Derrick Henry type of runner and looking at their yards created metrics. Graham shockingly similar between AJ Dylan in two thousand and twenty and Derrick Henry Twenty. Number One, can you make sense of the packers Jay Dillon pick, and did you learn any lessons from charting Derrick Henry when it came to watching Aj Dylan trying to rationalize what the packers did with that pick. Yeah so all of the packers picks in. This draft were surprising. Very surprising..

"In we can get into that too, but. By and large I think it's done a pretty decent job of illuminating. The most talented runners in the runners that are forcing the most miss tackles. Get into it for this year for the rookies. Who who's the WHO's the king? WHO's the guy from this year's group that set out to you in terms of? Yards, created. Yeah the number. One guy in the class was probably no one that you would expect Ross. Who was actually Anthony McFarland he? He led the class yards. Critic pretend at five point nine. That's actually right behind what Zeke did. We we can talk about Mcfarland a little bit. Wool will kind of transition flip back to the top five of this class in I'll start with with Jonathan Taylor for. Running back for the colts now he was fantastic at Wisconsin I. know that's not necessarily a bold take at all, but are doing my study I kind of went into it with. Guess a an idea that Wisconsin, offensive line the badgers kind of you know opened up more yards than you would expect in. You know. Taylor was a little bit of a product product of his office of line at scheme there but I kind of wasn't the case. Wisconsin actually opened up way. Fewer yards blocked per attempt in pretty much every back in this class like aged Dylan de Andrea, swift jk Dobbins Collider Brazil all had better off into blinds Taylor. In Taylor was dominant yards created. Fantastic. I, think he he's an underrated. Guy In terms of the not necessarily like a make. You miss type runner like lead over layer of. Christian McCaffrey was coming out, but certainly is strong in this tackles forced and. His credit metrics were fantastic. I mean huge, actually more efficient with out full back on the field, even though Wisconsin at afl back on the field on like a third of his carries an in this class, Taylor ranked third in yards, critter attempt shotgun, and he was first when Wisconsin had a quarterback under center so I I thought Jonathan Taylor was clear rb one coming into this class. Excuse me coming into the draft I expected him to be. One of the first two running backs off the board obviously play out that way, but I still went super early still went to a great landing spot. He is my number two running back in this class for for rookie dynasty drafts. Well let's get to the guy who I think's number. One gram and that's got to be quite Edwards Allaire and now play behind a really good offensive line I, think the LSU offensive line might be near the top ten. In terms of what you've ever charted, but even though his yards created metric is is mediocre, compared to some of the other guys I think according to your charging..

"This time Graham. Barfield, who is known for the yards, created metric that he has founded, and I want to get into that because that was interesting, Joe was telling me before the show. How you grind to get that. He is one of the do debt. Fantasy points DOT COM I. Don't know that we've ever met Graham. But just looking at your twitter profile I really don't like you very much because you have awesome hair like you've amazing hair, dude. Thank you so much Ross. Yeah I, don't I? Don't think I think this is our maiden voyage. It's nice to nice to meet you. Thanks for having me on Yeah, yards created has been. It's definitely a grind. That's certainly one way to put it Yeah, it's been this project I've undertaken now in the last five off seasons where? I basically chart any college running back coming into the NFL and. Try to find out some some fun things about how they how they went as players and excited. Talk to you guys about it today. Okay so let me dive a little bit deeper into that. Because, I've heard of this before but I want to have people understand what you actually do like. What does yard created mean? And how do you go about identifying for each player? Sheriff, yards created is the amount of yards running back gets on his own after the offensive line has or has not done its job, so the way to think of it is. On every play, the offensive line is opening up or not opening up holes in gaps for running back to get through in after the running back gets through the initial whole or creates behind the line of scrimmage to to get past the initial wave of the defense. Those are the yards that weren't back is creating on his own in the NFL when every player is. Super Athletic Superfast the margin, fair and the whole out small, even college football. There's something to be said. For players that are constantly creating on their own constantly you know making yards making moves on their own and enforcing the tackle, so I'm literally charting every every single play every single snap for six.

"He's a West Point Grad got his MBA at Warton and has been crushing it with Ambi. We're GONNA talk about how the Falcons look to the future. Their businesses the strategy behind cashless transactions inside the stadium and how they built their fan base and community all extremely valuable conversations. We will not be talking about corona virus because when I record this interview three weeks ago it hadn't really happened yet. So take a break from all the chaos learn more about sports business. Find your focus. See if this is a sign of the industry that interests you because we will get back to normal hopefully sooner rather than later and you want to be prepared so learn a little something from today's guest Gordon Barfield director of Business Strategy for sports and entertainment. Hey Gordon how's it going today going? Great how are you? I'm doing really well. I'm really excited to talk to you about everything. Happening at a NBC sports entertainment and your background in the military and some of the things that have really launched you in your career. So let's jump into this Before we get into your world of business strategy and all the steps you took to get where you are now. I WANNA go back to that military background a little bit and the synergy you find between the military and sports because I find that we have a lot of people in our audience who are from a military background and a veteran veterans that are looking to transition into this world and that seems to be very aligned with your background. You're a West Point Grad an active duty. Army until two thousand fourteen. Why do you think that is? Why is there such a parallel between active military or retired veterans? Who are looking to transition and seen the sports world is a fit. Yeah absolutely so. I've spent five years in the army entirely in the entry You know we're not transitioned out. Probably some of the same reasons that a lot of other veterans have and. I knew there'd be some things that I would have a tough time finding outside of the military and I think you know top ones that come to mind. I knew I'd missed. The Camaraderie shared sacrifice the fighting for something bigger than yourself. I think those are things. That many veterans come to mess especially after they get out and out for a little while I think many vets are drawn to sports and sports business due to some of those close similarities You know it's the people culture that shared purpose of achieving a common goal that you find in both military and sports would you consider yourself a competitive person. Is that part of it as well. Absolutely something I really was drawn to just in the business world To start with but then even more so in sports you take a you know world where winning on the field dries success but also winning business and kind of put those two together and it was just a perfect fit in business and sports. Absolutely everybody I work with. I share that same competitive desire competitive dowdy. Yeah I always wonder if that's an essential component because I've been in the industry for twenty years now my background's in the sports media and I just felt like it was a very competitive world and I thrived in that world. I love that and I find most people. I talked to have that kind of a competitive spirit and I just wondered from your perspective is. That is that you've identified as being essential for success in the sports industry absolutely and it goes all across sports business landscape so even just creative people who are doing graphic design by everything. They're doing and they want the they want to be the best at it. They want to have the best marketing campaigns. They want to be the most innovative team most innovative stadium who's competitive nature seeing across everything that we do And it really permeates through all lines of all bold and all types of work in the company. Yeah I love that personally. I love that drive to always be the best and that is something. That's really essential in our industry so I found interesting in your background when you were at West Point. You're you're in mechanical engineering. Which doesn't necessarily translate to the sports world quite as well and then after the army you got your MBA from wharton. So why this step? How did when did you hit that moment? Where you're like okay. Maybe it's not the mechanical engineering thing. Maybe I need to really enhance my business. Now this is the right. When did you hit that moment? Where that was a realization. You want to pursue right. So got my Undergrad. Degree in mechanical engineering really had no desire. Jeopardy engineer would sounds kind of silly for that. We're joined and went into the army. After West Point I went to the infantry And Years Pretty much none of my engineering abilities or skill set so you know I. I did because I enjoyed it. I like the problem solving approach. Critical thinking that those those traits are things that are taken with me. Well decided to leave the army I knew I wanted to get into the business world and I wanted to myself out best for success in the business world and so to me getting an MBA at a top school. Felt like a natural choice. Then I was blasted except to have opportunity to work after that at McKinsey and Company And really throughout Montana. Both Work Nam Mackenzie owes able to develop skills and some of the capabilities that I think prepared me very well. The transition to into my current job here. You said something really interesting in there that I latched onto. You talked about problem solving traits. And that's something I think we probably don't talk about. Enough is just the ability to Zia problem and solve a problem and as it relates to business or industry or anything that you're involved in and having a vision for solutions is that something that is just a intrinsic thing with the new or is that something kind of developed over time. I think it's something you have to have. I think a lot of people want to be problem solvers. I'm but they don't necessarily have the in the background or the skills or really the training to get to a point where they're truly effective. I think something you see at all levels across all companies big and small and there's always a need do better and better job of solving problems quickly. Efficiently effectively Company that I focused a lot on and like it's been a good skill set to have especially in the sports world. It's true I remember when I had a staff staff of thirty five and when people would come in and to my office with the problem instead of just coming up with a solution for them I always say back to them. Alright Gimme two ideas you know. What do you think we should be doing? How do you think we should be solving this problem? And at first it was like you got all this pushback people were like well. I don't know that's your job. You know what I mean. They wanted me to solve it for them. But as soon as you start to get into that mentality and pushing people and saying give me two ideas. Give me your thoughts. And then they present their two and then maybe I'd say that's not bad. Let's what about this though. And you get them thinking that way and challenging themselves way next thing you know. They become problem solvers. So it does seem to me like that's something that can be trained or at least expected of staff. Do you agree Absolutely I think there's some things you can do. Your example you gave you gave a little bit of structure is that I come up with some ideas what structure. What's what's think about. What are the possible outcomes? Where the possible scenarios we can we can go down. And then you can enable and empower people to solve problems themselves of rely on one person to do all of the all problem solving and idea creation and execution and all that so right at this point in your career. You've got your Warton. Mba you're at McKinsey. These are great places to learn and educate yourself did you. Were you still kind of figured out who you wanted to be when you grew up because it's still pretty a pretty big jump into the sports world. We're still searching for your long-term fit or did you kind of have this is for eventually. I want to get to the sports world absolutely so I think I'll still looking for that long term set when I was at McKinsey and just given the nature of consulting you're bouncing between different companies and those are all inherently short-term opportunities but didn't know the types of things I was interested in that new the types of work I didn't WANNA do And the types of companies I would like to work at and just so happened that NBC sports and entertainment and Sports World Accu most of those companies bidding. Like what I wanted to do in my career so natural fit and the timing was right. Yeah so you joined a NBC sports and entertainment just about two years ago. It's a parent company for the Falcons United Mercedes Benz Stadium and some other other Arthur blank's ventures a tough one. You join them as director of business strategy and this was your first true. Gig In sports were there any eye opening moments when you first got started with. Am Be like did you look at it and say Whoa. This is completely different than I've done before or anything. That kind of stands out from that that those first couple dancer year yeah. There's a few things that stood out. I think one is the the core values that the entire organization truly lives now. It's something that Mr Blank and our top leadership did put a pretty passionate focus on and there was something refreshing to experience especially coming from Mckinsey working with large corporations. Another thing that I think was was eye opening What was your organization's commitment to invest in not just and things to make money but also invested in the stands investing in the community and then really invest in the employees. We had his bench here. that our company has you know. Has It pretty unique for land of being highly profitable but also pretty small and it's got a pseudo startup stays with the United Mercedes Benz Stadium? Only being a few years old and they're still a pretty big focus on innovation and growth that combination of things. And it's just something that's you don't get a lot of other places knows just hoping to see all of that will come to fruition and come to light there over the last few years. So what would you say is the main thrust of your role with the organization? What does it mean to be the director of business strategy because it seems like a pretty broad title in cover a lot of areas? How would you define absolutely not that way? Pretty Nebulous title a so. I'd say you know for me and my team. We have a handful of responsibilities. I pulled in a lot of different ways but I have a few primary functions I lead and manage strategy development strategic. Planning I manage keys. Projects Ashes a thought partner with most different departments in the business that spends significant time working on on ways to further improve our business. So that includes things like growth strategy initiatives towards improving. Fan Experience cost-reduction programs organizational health building etc. So it sounds like an away. You're always looking towards the future what's needed next. What's happening next? Is that is where you have to kind of? Keep your creative lens on is is were. Where can we be going absolutely.

Excavate tunnels thinking that the copper scroll treasure and made that I've met with orange got valued friend at this point. And he he he says that he couldn't speak for days after Donald set.

Can't you can't put a price tag on it, especially since we're talking about potential temple furniture vessel. But just the precious metal alone.

So when when does this retired firefighter from Oklahoma City Jim Barfield, enter the the race for the copper scroll treasure. Right. So Jim Barfield is he's such a unique character. I mean at this point I've been following his story for a decade of my life. And so at once I think in the beginning, I tried to write this story is an investigative journalist, but tried to, you know, following someone closely for ten years and not feeling, you know, like an attached tear leader. And so yeah. So he Jim Barfield a retired arson investigator from Oklahoma. What makes him really interesting is that you know, he'll self deprecating lot and say that you know, he has no formal education and the only letters behind his name Murtaza, you know, that he's certified to drive a fire truck.

Sex lived at comb run. So super fascinating an interesting, the copper, scroll the dry inventory. So it didn't have any spiritual significance for him.

"Mention before we bring our guest Jim Barfield into the conversation at midnight that calendar change in its eleventh. And of course, you know, then the night I was walking I took a late night walk and was walking by the churches and Cooperstown because you do a loop. You see all the churches and their people were out putting flags and this is late night. Why why are these people putting flags out on the church lawn and at several different churches, and I realized as I was walking to try figure it's Labor Day anymore. It's certainly not Memorial Day would and I realized it was to commemorate nine eleven which, you know, again, even though that was seventeen years ago, which in itself is hard to believe it's still a day that you know, we have to take take pause and remember not only the people that we lost on that day. But the reason we lost him and things we've needed to do sense to keep our people safe. And it was it's one of those days that you'll always remember where you were on that day. Never forget it. I was on plumbing, coal and just God blessed. Everybody out there. It's just a scary world really is it is. And like, you said, they're the interesting thing is there are people now that are reaching adulthood that weren't alive when that actually happened which is hard to even fathom in my book, you know, it's just time flies. It's just unbelievable. Anyway, let's bring our guest in. Jim Barfield is a director of the copper school project. He has a personal interest in bible study led him to learn and study about the Dead Sea scrolls, and he came across the least understandable of all the Dead Sea scrolls, which is known as the copper scroll. Jim welcome to the program is great to have you on beyond reality radio. We'll thank you, sir. I'm glad to be here. Thanks for coming up. We I don't know if you if you want to share with us, your thoughts quickly before we get into this topic about where you were when you heard the news about nine eleven we, you know, this is the day we commemorate that tragedy that unbelievably horrid day, but we all kind of have a story as to where we were at the time. And I'm sure you have one as well. Yeah. Actually, I do just gone into fire marshal's office off few months prior and guys were in the other room watching TV because they had heard something that happened a on New York, and I was busy. But I heard him, you know, really getting excited I walked in the same room where they were at and as a walked into the room the second airplane hit the second building. Well, yeah, it was just unbelievable. And that's when that's really when you realized that it wasn't an accident. And that that's what happened to me. I was doing plumbing job and the lady came downstairs and said a plane just hit the World Trade Center. And so I came up I was watching the news with her. And that's when the second one hit and right, then and there I knew this. This wasn't a mistake. Oh, yeah. I mean that was as that all unfolded a national TV in say almost everybody was glued to the television. As these reports were coming in. And we were watching these trad this tragic, I mean, uncomparable tragedy occur and unfold. I mean, it's it's it's surreal it you kind of liken it to what when JFK was assassinated. But I almost think there's there's way more to it. Oh, I'm in complete agreement. I was alive for that one too. This is a matter of fact, and I remember it very very clear just a little boy and newspaper guys pulled up in our neighborhood because we live in pretty poor neighborhood. And they were hollering for the kids. You know, we need people boys go downtown until newspapers and like nineteen sixty or sixty one sixty two something like that. Don't remember the day. But I certainly remember very clearly what was going on that day. So yeah. Very memorable event man tomorrow, very memorable. If that matter of fact, one of the the fire Marshall called me, I was assistant fire marshal at the time. He called me all the radio a little bit after that. I had to go take care of job. And he said Jimmy you need to come back to the office. So I said, okay. So I turned around and got back when I got in there. They were they had grabbed my my best. My bulletproof vest and had me put it on because they've been getting calls. That they were going to shoot me going to kill me because they thought I was a Raigad is what they call it, they Muslim Muslim, and it wouldn't it at all. I studied Hebrew. And matter of fact, that led to the governor scroll in all the time because my studies in Hebrew, and from my Jewish perspective. So it was just a minute. Just all of a sudden became very very personal for me. And my family that moment. Well, we've got about two minutes before we have to go to our break here. Let's take those two minutes and tell us how you first learned of took an interest in the Dead Sea scrolls as a whole. It became important to me. At a point. I cannot even tell me when it began. I just knew that they were important, but I knew that for my biblical studies. Which was my passion. I had no I had to know more Hebrew. And I had to know more about the Dead Sea scrolls, because as I studied it tell you there's there are things in the Dead Sea scrolls that they're not telling you either they just haven't seen it or they're not telling people their stuff in there about I call him, your shoe, you calling Jesus and I used to call him Jesus, it it gives his date of birth date of John the Baptist birthday because the date of the crucifixion. It gives the date of the destruction of both temples first temple the second temple or here. Instead will actually so there's a lot in there about about the Christian and Jewish faiths tremendous amount. And people are just not seeing it yet. A buddy of mine on the other day matter of fact, the first day you guys got in contact with me. Listen to you guys always like to check it out and make sure they're not couch or something like that. So listened in on you guys. Great show handsome. Thank you. Yeah. He he's a great guy. And I encourage you getting back on again. He's he's not only really intelligent. He's funny. And he's is great to be around. Yeah. We had a great discussion with Kennedy. Remember that very very well. And Allison remember asking him about you. And we're very very happy to have you on. We're going to go to break here now. But when we get back, Jim I really want to get into the differences between the Dead Sea scrolls as body of work that was discovered and then specifically the copper, scroll why it differs more than just it's got copper in the name. Our guest is Jim Barfield director, copper scrolls project. You listen to the Jason and JV beyond reality radio. We'll be back after this..
