"All right, get ready to hook up with my clips our 9 news Bronco insider live from LA as he gets set to attend tonight's game between the Broncos and the Chargers Monday Night Football. I asked this question to the 6 a.m. listeners. I'll ask you to everyone here. Listening, has the long mini buy giving you a chance to kind of recharge your optimism batteries. I think for me, more than anything else, I have looked at how bad the rest of the league is, right? And you're like, well, listen, you can basically go, well, they win this game and they're in second place in the division. And not all is lost. If they could just get some offensive continuity, like they could, they have a chance they should get some players back on the defensive side of the ball. Right? I mean, they should get Justin Simmons back. Yep. So, you know, why not? You're saying there's a chance. Right. All right, let's see if my cliff shares that same optimism as he joins us now live from LA, Mike, you've had about ten days to get over what we last saw last time the Broncos were out there, have you used the time wisely? Do you feel more optimistic about this team moving forward? I don't know if they've used the time wisely. They began by taking about three days off to rest the bumps and bruises. So that's good. Get the body's recharged. And then they had another 7 8 days to prepare. I suppose the coaches used to all ten days to prepare. And so I think they should and there's no excuse with this type of break. This is an advantage for the Broncos. They have three more days and then the chargers and they should be closer playing closer to peak performance than the Chargers tonight. And so, you know, I do think the Broncos can win. I even think they will win. And to go one step further, they, you know, I think they must win. If they lose this game, guys, you know, I just think everyone's going to kind of come to the conclusion that with the schedule on the other side and all the injuries that they've had that this team isn't going to the playoffs. They have to win this game tonight. In my opinion, if they're going to be a legitimate playoff contender. All right, so you mentioned the injury issues, walk us through it, like who are we going to get back? What do we look like from a health perspective going into this game against the Chargers? Well, the good news is all three IR guys, which is Simmons dulcich. And owes your moody should be coming back should be active tonight. And dulce will help in the offense. Simmons and osha moody on defense, especially with Darby down. Darby and Garrett Bowles, those are two big losses. Josie Jewell is down, but Alex singleton has played really well. So he'll team up with Jonas Griffith. That's probably the one injury where they have the best depth behind them. I think Calvin Anderson will probably be at left tackle behind Garrett Bowles. So I think Billy Turner, I'm not sure if it's Billy Turner or cam Fleming. At right tackle, but Billy Turner will be available to play. You'll dress, I'm not sure he beat out cam Fleming, if you will, in the last ten days to earn the right tackle position. Because Fleming has played well. That hasn't been that has not been their problem by and large Quinn miners back at right guard, I do believe. So they're healthier than they have been the last couple of weeks. So that's good for the Broncos. Mike, if you could reintroduce Broncos country to Greg dulce, take in with the 16th pick in the third round. What do the Broncos like about this guy? Well, first of all, they don't have another one like them. I mean, they haven't received much in the way of the past catching game from their tight end position. And that's what he gives them number one is a threat receiver. From the tight end position. And that's the reason why he was a third round draft pick. I don't know how he is as a blocker. They like him. I know they liked all such, but he's had a hamstring injury. That's been incredible. Incredibly hard for him to shake, he got it in the second week of OTAs, which is the first week of June. It was like June 2nd. And every time he tried to come back, he aggravated it and he has yet to play. And so I'm not sure how well or how much he's going to play tonight eventually. They hope to get them up sooner rather than later as a legit threat and even a starter at tight end. How much of it is the tight ends haven't been productive and how much of it is Russell Wilson in the offense, just not using them. Probably a little bit of both, but mostly, you know, Albert O is probably the one legit receiving threat. And he is not blocked well enough, and he's missed a few assignments to where his playing time has got reduced. You know, Eric sobered is a nice complimentary title. And that's what he's supposed to be. He's been cut by Jacksonville and a couple other teams among others. He's supposed to be the number three number four tight end and he's been their number one. So I think that's been that's been the problem. We're counting on dulcich and Albert O for whatever reason didn't come on like they had hoped. The coaching staff, he didn't come on for this new coaching staff. Maybe with the old coaching staff that drafted him, there would have been more Albert O but with this wide zone system, I just don't think they like the way he's blocked for it. So but Russ, yeah, you know, there's a lot of stuff out there that rust doesn't go over the middle because he's 5 foot 11, 5, ten, whatever. And I'm sure that's part of it too. All right, Mike, mister, we appreciate you have fun in Los Angeles tonight. And hopefully you can bring back victory. Well, I'm trying to sneak in on a trip to the beach right now, why not? One in Rome. Sure. And so, yeah. And so we'll see, we'll see about tonight, but again guys, they've got to win. Is this a beach day, like sit in the sand, toes in the sand, shirt off, walk in the surf or is this like just a walk along the boardwalk or something? Yeah, it's walk to see the ocean lamp in its about 61, well, actually, it's still a little dark here. You got the fog. Marine layer, marine layer. Yeah, they caught the brown hair out there, yeah. Speedo or Bermuda shorts. Workout shorts. Okay. All right. All right. All right. Thank you, Michael. Thanks, Mike. See you guys. All right. Leaving that image of Mike cliffs in a banana hammock for all of you. Right. That's what I do.

"The Dodgers. They spend money. They develop prospects. Right. Like you would hate the Yankees, right? They're not the same. There's not the same level of vitriol when it comes to not for me, but maybe for some rocky fans. They would look well now. I mean, come on, DK, can't get tickets to the rockies games when the doctors are in town. Good point. Everybody's in blue. I'll do it for the morning brew, bring that to each and every morning. At 6 30. It's a tell me why I'm wrong Wednesday where we give you a chance to assault. I told you so island and knock mark down a peg or two. Yeah, you guys are you guys ready? To start, we had a strong argument for the trade of Christian McCaffrey, but you batted that down, but it took some effort. It did take a little effort because I would love nothing more to have Chris McCaffrey here. I just don't think it's solves your issues right now. Tell me why I'm wrong next. You were listening to schlereth and Evans on Denver's sports station, one O four three the fan. All right, here we go. Let's get the armada. Out there and sail. You want to attack right now. I told you so long. I want to knock mark down a peg or two here. So here we go. Let's see if we can get Mark to me. You're not wrong. This one's from shaner. Nemesis. Nemesis. Do we figure out what the plural of nemesis? Hackett's a smart smart guy. Most of the time. So if he said nemesis is, I'm going to go with nemesis. He said shaner says this. You bozos made fun of my text on air before the season started, it said nothing has changed. Broncos brought in a washed up veteran quarterback of first time coach who is in way over his head and continue to ignore right tackle middle linebacker and often overpay for injured free agents. I wasn't wrong then. Tell me why I'm wrong now. And if thinker does agree with me, he has to start selling shaner sunblock on I told you so island to block out the memory of admitting my dominance over him. Oh God. I'm rooting for this now. I'm going to go to fight. I'm going to go to battle here for Shane. Let's go. One. What changed? First and foremost, week 5, it's a little bit too early for you to take a victory lap shaner. Washed up free agents, DJ Jones is playing as well as anybody on the defensive line in football when it comes to the inside position defending the run. The guy has been a dominant force. So I would say pump your brakes on sign up washing, overpaying, washed up free agents. That guy has been really good for them, okay? The right tackle position, you address it, you just, you try to address it with what Billy Turner and Billy Turner, I don't know what's going on there. I mean, obviously the guy still hurt and can't play. As far as the washed up quarterback talk, he is like, he is not playing well. He has not played well. But I'm telling you right now, the one thing that I will not stand for. And I will not put up with is, he's completely washed, he hit 33, and he's washed. That is such a bunch of garbage. Now, is he playing well? No, is he seeing the field? No, is he comfortable with this offense? No. Do I think they need to do exactly what Sean Payton suggested on the Sunday countdown show or whatever it is on Fox? I don't know what we call that on Fox. What do we call the fox based fox pre game show? Is that what it is? Sure. Why not? The Fox pregame. Sounds great. You need to have a little sit down meeting. And I hope this is, I hope the way he's played here recently, especially Thursday night is humbling enough for him. Is a point of humility to say, okay, I got to get back to doing what I do well, not trying to become somebody that I'm not. I understand that you want to become Drew Brees. You know you're not going to become you're not becoming Drew Brees. Over the course of an off season. That is something that's going to take a lot of time. So let's go baby steps on this one. But to sit there and suggest that he's washed up because he's missing, there's nothing wrong with him throwing the football. And when he does scramble, and he scrambled a couple times, you're recently, he's still looks dynamic as an athlete. So there's nothing wrong with that. To suggest that this is just that he hit 32 or 33 and now he's over. He's terrible. That is just lazy. That's lazy commentary. That's easy. Now he's missing stuff, Mike. Obviously, he doesn't he's not familiar or he's not good in what they're asking him to do right now or what he's telling them they're going to do right now. And at some point you have to come to you have a little come to lord meeting with yourself and with your coach about what am I going to do that I'm good at and let's put me in a position to win. And if that means going back and really dissecting what they did a lot in Seattle, get under center more. But we had brought you on yesterday, our Seattle whisperer. And he said, basically, don't pin this on Hackett and don't go start talking about how Sean Payton said you got to play Russ's best hits from Seattle. This is Ross. This is Russ, sure. This is what Russ wants. simply following along. And it's Hackett's marching orders to do what Russ wants to do. And this is all about Russ. Wanting to change the way he plays quarterback. And if you are somebody that believes and I believe it's strongly as well that Russ is trying to take on too much too soon in evolving into Drew Brees, it needs to be a more gradual progression and he still needs to hang on and still continue to do the things that made him Russell Wilson in the first place, but this is a Russell Wilson issue. It's a Russell Wilson decision. Nobody else is. Right. So that's wrong. Again, and here's another area that I'm available for. If you want to hire me as part of your team, I'll give you, I'll give you the straight skinny. I'll let you know when you're being an idiot. I'll say, hey Russ, that's stupid. I'm the optics guy. Arrest. If I were you, you know what I would do? I would play better. You know how you play better? Do you think you're familiar? I'm gonna give you a different title. Wow. Not optics guy. You just need to be Russ's truth teller. The truth teller, truthiness. You need to be his truth teller. You need to be the guy that says Russ, that tweets a dumb idea. Russ, pimping hats when your crowd is leaving in droves before an overtime game is a bad tweet. Russ, the kind of offense you want to run right now, bad idea. I need a truth teller in his life. What would that, what would that actual title be though? Not just that you can't say, I love truth teller. But Russell, what's your title? Here's my card. Just as Mark schlereth, Russell Wilson's truth teller. The truth whisperer I like truth teller, you do? Yeah, 'cause whisperer, truth whisperer is like, you're like, hey, you might want to do this. You might want to do that. No, no. Truth teller is, hey, dummy. The way it's going to be. Truth whisperer sounds like that little noid on his shoulder. Idiot. Don't push send. That's stupid. And he's like, what? What's wrong? Don't say let's ride after

"He writes that Denver fan dot com how the Broncos lost in Vegas felt like the Fangio era except for one thing. So here's where it felt hauntingly familiar, Josh Jacobs trampling the Broncos and the miscues, the self inflicted wounds that Nathaniel Hackett says has been plaguing this team all on display, even the fumble by Melvin Gordon again, something we've seen before the inability to make a big stand on defense after they have scored the touchdown to make it 25, 23. Come on defense, give us a stand. Get the ball back to Russell Wilson. Couldn't do it. Raiders go down in score. So may says it felt a lot like Fangio except for one big thing. In mace's opinion, hey, Russell Wilson seems to be getting better and better. With all the focus on Melvin Gordon today, where are you at right now? With the evolution of this offense, are you encouraged at all? I'm encouraged that Russell Wilson, I think, was 11 of 12 in the first half. I'm encouraged that Russell Wilson was able to get his wide receivers other than not named courtland Sutton involved in the first half. I'm impressed with the fact that Russell Wilson went out there and threw two touchdowns. So I look at things like that, it looks like the red area woes, those things are a time of the past. But at the same time, I think everything around Russell Wilson, there's real problems around Russell Wilson, and there's only so much that you could ask your quarterback to do. Such as. Offensive line, the right side of this line, particularly. It is bad. Like Graham Glasgow showed you why the Broncos asked him to take a pay cut. And showed you why he willingly took that pay cut and did not say the heck with that, you know, let me go be a free agent somebody else will pick me up. Cam Fleming shows you why he was out there on the streets when training camp started. So we're all Billy Turner. He's the mystery man. Yeah, mystery man not ready yet. Not ready yet. Not mentally ready? Emotionally ready? I think with Billy Turner, if you're the real tell is going to be next week when the Broncos play the Chargers on Monday Night Football. Because now you get a unique opportunity to play Thursday. You get some extra practice days. You don't play the following Sunday, have Billy Turner's ever, if there's ever going to be a site in a Billy Turner, it would be next week. You're still going to have right big right side issues this week. Yes. All see a couple of holding calls. Bosey Holden calls. A scheme, I don't think Nathaniel Hackett truly understands his personnel on offense. I don't think he's put in this offense in the best position to succeed. You ran a starter pass on Crosby's second sack where you're asking Andrew Beck to go block him. That's the best player on that defense for the Las Vegas Raiders. I don't know why you would put your full back on him and now as Graham Glasgow to pull and block cam Chancellor off the edge on the other side. It's just a bad scheme running a stutter pass. All right, so you feel better about Russell Wilson, but you're really down on everything around him. Yes. Okay. All right. Fair enough. Well, Peterson writes about the good the bad the ugly. The good, Russell Wilson cooked, the bad, the Denver defense. Was bad after being excellent the first three games of the season and the ugly open Gordon stinks. All right, we've spent our time with Melvin Gordon. What about the defense? Boy, the defense better be thankful for what's going on with Melvin Gordon because they're allowed to skate a little bit. They were bad. They were bad. I mean, when you give up 25 first downs, 7 of 14 on third down, you're out there for 74 plays. They just you give up 212 yards rushing. I mean, that's just. That's just a mono Amano. Here we come. Can you stop us and they couldn't stop that? I mean, that's got to be as an offensive lineman. I know you love those games. When you were running the ball so effectively that the defense knew what was coming and they still couldn't stop you. What a demoralizing feeling that must be. Yeah. Just looking at this defense, Mike, they were bullied yesterday. I would think that defense was and that's why you knew that this game wasn't gonna go well early. Even though it was close, I watched the defense just play after play where the Raiders said, you know what? The heck with you, you're just too small, or you're just not gifted enough. And, you know, watch the type of runs that the Raiders did. They said, we're going downhill. There's none of this. We're not trying to get cute. We're going to get Josh Jacobs and we're going to put a full back in front of him. We're going to lead up and we're going to say, come make a tackle. I watch guys get pushed around in the run game. I watched linebackers have no idea where the ball was at. I watched the gap integrity of this defense really suffer, and then I watch guys get pushed around. Did you see the Josh Jacob late touchdown? A big 71 for the Raiders just said, oh, pat's retain. You need to go sit down somewhere and just push them down where that's what type of day it was and there wasn't nobody standing up saying I'm ready to fight. All right, so when Nathaniel Hackett comes out afterwards and we've played to quote a couple of times. I don't know, Johnny, if you have it handy in which he was asked about the Raiders run game in the Broncos difficulty in stopping it. Here's what he had to say and pick out the parts that have me as upset. I'm sure you'll feel the same way. Yeah, we knew when we went into this game. We were going to have to knock that run out early. And they do have very good run game. I give them so much credit. They came out and had a really good plan. They stuck with it throughout the entire game, and when you run for the over 200 yards, it's going to be detrimental. I mean, they had a lot of plays. I thought they had a good plan. They didn't want to get into long down a distance for passing situations so we could rush the passer and they try to slow the whole pace down and so I thought it was a really good plan by them. Oh, coach, listen, listen, I don't want you, first of all, out there praising their plan, giving them credit for sticking with their plan, all the while there was no adjustment to the plan. And it was just so what kind of adjustments could they have made? Or were there adjustments to be made? I think that these are everyone showed you that these are a little scared. And that's the problem with this Las Vegas offense. We know that they could push the ball down the field. We know that they can force me devonta Adam patser tame allowed catches yesterday, right? Devonta Adams had success, but then you see Darren Waller and now you know what he's been and how he's crushed the inside linebackers with the Broncos and I think no matter what this defense had to sit on their heels if they weren't able to generate pressure with the four guys. And that's where it gets interested. You know, Nathaniel Hackett talks about we knew the plan. You had to be able to stop the run and figure out how to generate pressure with only four russias. Broncos never did that. So now with the Las Vegas now and the Las Vegas Raiders were able to do whatever they wanted. Yeah, we could turn around and hand the ball off and we could run for 200. Oh yeah, we're going to get a guy had to have a hundred yard receiving game on you and by the way we're going to expose these inside linebackers with wide receivers and tight ends. So when you look at this football team as far as the Las Vegas Raiders, yeah, the record suggested they were bad, but they have weapons offensively and we saw that this football team lacks depth and we really saw how much we miss

"Football team? Yeah, that's a good question, though. And I saw your tweet about that at the end of the game and it came up, we flashed it up on our postgame show with Rachel and D Mac and I, and I really don't know. I mean, again, it's easy to say, hey, cut Melvin Gordon, right? That would be accountability, and that would be the sort of the impact that people think is fair and just, but I also think he's a relatively popular player in that locker room. You saw after the fumble, courtland Sutton trying to console him on the sideline and, you know, it was a fumble that he had because he was trying to run hard and trying to get an extra couple of yards there and, you know, trying to make the most of his opportunities. So that's the kind of move if you do it, it could unravel the locker room. So I don't know. That's tricky. I think it's more of a, you know, what's said and what's done in the meeting rooms. I think it's playing time. I think the Albert O example is a great one because he's disappeared at this point because of his inability to block and then to really make plays in the passing game. So I think it's that the problem is they're so banged up and there are so many injuries and guys that they just don't have another option that I don't know how you hold people accountable. For instance, on the right side of their offensive line is awful. They can't run to the right and Graham Glasgow and cam Fleming can't really protect Russell Wilson, but who are you going to play? Quinn miners, you know, pulls his hammy every time he tries to get back out there. Billy Turner at this point, it looks more like Nathaniel Hackett's imaginary friend than the solution at right tackle. So there really isn't another option to go with. That's the one, I guess, oh, but long winded way of saying, I'm not sure because they don't have a lot of other options. Every time you said it, Melvin Gordon was trying to run hard, right? And he tells us he's trying to run hard, but what can this coach and staff do to, I don't know, assure him that, hey, we're not because it seems like the problem is Melvin Gordon is frustrated. He's not getting enough snaps or that, hey, I am very limited with how many times I am going to touch the ball. So can this coaching staff do anything or say anything differently to change his approach where he has extra ball security or out there because he knows that I'm going to get another opportunity because it seems like every time he touches the ball, he does things out of fear of not being able to get another snap. Yeah, no, that's the problem with running back by committee in my mind. It's why I didn't like the resigning anyway and I'm accused of being a Melvin Gordon apologist. I never wanted him to resign Melvin 'cause I wanted to see what Yvonne could do as the feature back is the workhorse I think that this is a situation that was set up to be problematic because Melvin Gordon has always been a starter. He thinks he's a starter. He was never going to be fine with 20% of the carries. And that was either going to rear its ugly head in one of two ways. He was going to be divisive and problematic, right? You put him up in front of a podium, Melvin will be honest. And that could be an issue if he wasn't happy with playing time. Or when he gets out there and limited time, he's going to be trying to do too many too much and too many things, and it leads to mistakes, and that's what we've seen. So, you know, I do think you make a good point that that is something the coaching staff could sort of reinforce them of, hey, every time you're out there, you don't have to make the biggest play of the game, just do what's coming to you, what's coming naturally, and you'll stay out there. He looks, you know what he looks like. He looks like that guy that barely gets off the bench in a basketball game. And he knows as soon as he misses his shot, he's gonna get yanked and put back on the bench, and you know what that guy does? He never makes the shot. And most of the time he never even takes one. He's playing like a guy that is, isn't comfortable with his role. He's also not used to standing on the sideline. He didn't get a carry until his fumble. That was 70 minutes after kick-off. This is a guy that normally is out there all the time and he's used to being a starter and he's used to kind of getting his lather going. That's a role that he's not comfortable with clearly. I'm not making excuses for him. I'm just pointing out the facts of the case here. So I do think it's going to kind of solve itself here. Oh, 'cause he's gonna be the starter and he's gonna get the majority of the carries and he's not gonna get yanked. So I think we will see a different Melvin Gordon.

"As he had been against those of his own age. Why discuss a hypothetical matchup with secretariat asked nehru? When asked to elaborate, he noted that a showdown with three time defending horse of the year forgo was actually a real possibility, and that it could prove something on the racetrack. Ironically, Seattle slew would finish fourth against his own age group in his next start after winning the Triple Crown. It was the first loss of his career, and he would go to the sidelines for the rest of the season. As a result, a confrontation with forgo never materialized, and Seattle slew never got the chance to prove himself against older horses during his three year old season. But none of that really mattered on the day of the Belmont stakes. And what an eventful day it was. Seattle slew was late getting to the paddock. Trainer Billy Turner said the huge strong of onlookers along the path from the barn to the paddock had caused the delay. The stewards find him $200 anyway. Finally saddled and with John kruge aboard, Seattle slew stepped onto a muddy Belmont park racetrack. The powerful Kentucky bred son of bold reasoning was two to 5 on the tote board. His opponents included run dusty run and San hedren, who had completed the trifecta while finishing behind him in The Kentucky Derby. And with a crowd of 71,000 onsite and millions more watching by television, Seattle slew and 7 opponents were sent on their way by the starter at 5 47 p.m. Eastern Time. Slough went right to the front and never looked back. Chick Anderson, with the call. They're coming on the turn with Seattle so still the leader. Seattle slew, one mile in one 38 and four fifths now leads by a half. Still on the outside now San had brothers taking over. Then it's run dusty runs swinging to the extreme outside iron constitution. In the stretchy comes and he's opening up again. It's Seattle slow and he's drying clear of the field. Sano slow ass for a long time run dusty run. It's run dusty run in second and San Edwin third. They're hearing the finish line it still Seattle slow and he's opening it out to far and a half.

"I believe she'll get in for sure. And not only get in, she should be unanimous choice. She should get every single vote. And both of them will get in, eventually, if they don't both get in this time, they're both great, great race mayors and tough things are going to. I think they both get in this time, but the older should be unanimous. How could anybody not vote for her to get in? And, you know, there's other things. Some of the other horses that are on the list and, you know, I've always, there's always been an argument about rags to riches, you know, the feeling that won the Belmont was when she beat kerlin and she had such a short career, people are saying she shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame. I mean, I don't know if I agree with that. I mean, she didn't, in a short period of time, she did an awful lot of good things. And I think eventually she should get in as well. Well, I agree there, but so few Phillies of one classics of any of the digits being yeah, yeah, and Timmy I agree with you there. You also get a vote into the Hall of Fame. And I'm the same way. I actually voted for rags to riches to get in last year. I thought so. Yeah. Yeah, she'll be in there eventually. There's no doubt. How about on the human side? You have trainers Christoph Clement Graham motion and congrats to Graham for making the ballot this year. Doug O'Neill and John sheriffs, plus you have Jackie Cory nakatani, who are among the finalists for this year, which of those individuals is most likely to be inducted if you had to pick a couple. Well, I mean, I think they should all be in, but not get Tony for sure. But not entirely his career is amazing. I don't think you want to Triple Crown race, but he's doing everything else. And he should definitely be in. And I want to train your side and put them all in. They're all my Friends. They all deserve to be in the worker. Graham's a good friend. We had a lot of fun going through history when I went to pregnancy when the Derby we had a good Triple Crown run that year. I'd love to see Graham get in. Well deserved. He's deal. If you were on the committee, there'd be a thousand people in the Hall of Fame. Hey, I'd be putting a lot of more in than they are putting in because I know how hard these people work. Richard hazelton would be at the top of my list to help beard. Even though they didn't win a lot of mistakes, they went thousands of races. You should be in. Yeah, now you look at these trainers. I mean, you look at Doug O'Neill Graham and Christoph Clement. And nothing against John sheriffs. But these three, it's almost like it's a photo finish at the wire with things that they've done. I mean, Kristoff was 11th. I believe in it's 11th in the career earnings. Ram is 15. Doug is 13. The thing that gets me is that they seem to put a lot of emphasis on the Triple Crown races, but this is a career achievement. And I think that Christoph Clement is got 256 graded stakes wins. 34 grade one wins. Yeah, he's won the Belmont once, and he's got his first breeders cup win less last year. But you've told me that Kristoff Clement should be in the Hall of Fame. And I think that Kristoff dog and Graham should all be in the Hall of Fame this year and, you know, Corey nakatani, you know, he's a hard knocking rider in his time. And I believe that there's only one Jackie ahead of him in career earnings in the top 13. It's not in the Hall of Fame. That's Joel Rosario. I think Corey should also be, how about John sheriffs, Timmy? You know, John sheriff's is devoted his life to this game, but I think he's always going to be remembered just for zenyatta. And is that enough to get him in the Hall of Fame? I don't know. I mean, he's obviously a great horseman. But he doesn't have the kind of numbers that these other guys have. You know, sometimes too, it's a bit of a head scratcher as to the people that get in and those that are left out and maybe never get in. A few weeks ago, if you remember we were looking back on Billy Turner, the trainer of Seattle slew after he passed away. And we all said, why isn't Billy Turner in the Hall of Fame? But outside of Seattle slew and Dale, I'll ask you, does Billy Turner have the credentials to get into the Hall of Fame? Should he be a Hall of Famer? He wanted Triple Crown train one of the greatest horses of all time, yes. Yep, that's enough for Dale Romans to put him in. And the other guy that I think should have been on the bells, Barkley tag. I mean, he has had a marvelous career. And I believe he's I think he might be the only trainer that's won each Triple Crown race. It's not in the Hall of Fame..

"Say, well, we're going to stick with bob. They be saying to me, write a race and it calls for a Derby for bob sources. Who knows? I don't know, but I think that it's just a bad bad bad situation and it just leave it a bad taste and everybody's mouth. It's obviously become personal. And that's what bothers me. It should all stick, this is business. And it's big business. They should stick to better. You know, you don't have to announce things like I'm taking off his plaques. Really? Is it there's a multi-billion dollar company in the CEO, I have to go tit for tat with Bob Baffert. Let's let it go. Let's let it work itself out. But it would be interesting if Derby comes around and bob's got the two best horses. And they just say, we'll wait for the pregnancy. I mean, yeah. I don't think that's the attention. So I hate to Derby being used as a weapon. And that's what has become the derbies, the sacred part of this game. It's the engine that drives everything we do in this game. And they're the stewards of it and they have a major responsibility to handle it properly. Yeah, bob got a bad test, but really, even on paper, let's just say he's guilty of everything that's known. It's 22 people grams of illegal medication that was an overage. It's not like he was caught with heroin and horses system. Our cocaine. And everybody gets away from that with all these conspiracy theories that are swarming around. And I hate to sound like I'm always defending because I'm really not I'm defending due process and what can happen to any trainer or anybody who works on the backside. These are multi-million dollar businesses. These guys have. And for someone like Churchill, because they got mad at you to yank it away without you even having a hearing. I mean, but Dana is still The Kentucky Derby one. And we're going to talk about that a little bit later the show, but the whole thing is frustrating on both sides. Somebody needs to take the high road. Let's work it out and see what really the problems aren't fix them. Yeah, well, I can tell you this guys, the first 50 point race, meaning 50 points to the winner is the risen star at the fairgrounds on February 19th. That's about a month away. If there is no decision made by then. And I find it hard to believe there would be. Timmy, do you see trainers saying, okay, forget it. This is the stakes are getting too high now. I need to make a call and move my horses somewhere else. Again, we're talking about the owners here and I think that it depends on how loyal they are to bob and how long they've been with them. And I know that a lot of these owners have been with him for a long time. And one thing that just makes me shake my feeble head every day is that why is this taking so long if Churchill downs wanted this to be done? It should be done, shouldn't it? Let me correct you. Church wise, nothing to do with it. That's the whole that's my sticking point. The racing commission panels all legal and all rural issues. Churchill has not have a say in any of that. And the due process is a steward sharing if it loses that he will be sanctioned there and appeal to the racing commission. The full commission certainly have a actual hearing and a judge outside judge come in here to case. Then if he loses there, it goes into the court system. It's not a regulator. They are not a regulatory body. And for this, so they just jumped over all of that and became their own regulatory body without a hearing. And the reason it's taken so long from what I understand, it's on bob's side, he got an injunction to where he could go have more testing done. They have not, I don't even know if there's a date yet for the first Stewart hearing for it to take place. And that's what's frustrating about Churchill. In my opinion they shouldn't let regulatory bodies handle it, and then decide if they wanted to do something more after the fact if proven guilty, if taken down and losing their Kentucky Derby. Look real bad. For both sides to get into paper and nit pick and announce things. If you're going to file a lawsuit file a lawsuit, why you got to come out say file lawsuit? Why do you need your name back in the paper about publicity? And why search don't need to come back and nitpick. They should have never said a word. Let bob talk all he wants. And do what they're going to do. We don't need to. That's the new world. It's social media. That's the president's everything. We're all going to talk about what we might do. Or what we're going to do. Instead of just doing things. Yeah. Well, there's a lot of layers to this, and it's going to be interesting to see how things play out over the next couple of months here. And if Bob Baffert does indeed go ahead and Sue Churchill downs, much like he did with the situation in naira. Where does that lead us and again, it comes back to the owners, how long are the owners going to stick with Bob Baffert as their trainer? And are they willing to bypass The Kentucky Derby if it comes down to it? We'll see. Are you hate? You hate to think that somebody would buy past a Derby, a set of presidents and maybe soften the importance of the Derby. Yeah. Yeah, all right, we're gonna see. All right, let's move on. We have a few more things to get to, including this next one. Which last week, each of you had requested that we spend a few minutes talking about Triple Crown winning trainer, Billy Turner, who passed away on December 31st. You also requested that we debate which horses should be named three year old champion of 2021. I think we all come at that from a couple different angles. So let's talk about them now. Let's start with remembering Billy Turner and Dale as a trainer, I'm going to go to you. Well, when I was 9 years old, I went to Kentucky Derby, my first one, I haven't missed one since. And Seattle won the race. And I just got so enamored by that horse and followed him everywhere and I have talked to the angel Cordero about writing. I've talked to what's now brain freeze jacked up or not in the French kid. He's talking. And but one of the greatest things in my career was I was in the Belmont..

Which last week, each of you had requested that we spent a few minutes talking about Triple Crown winning trainer, Billy Turner, who passed away on December 31st. You also requested that we debate which horses should be named three year old champion of 2021. And I think we all come at that from a couple different angles. So let's talk about them now. Let's start with remembering Billy Turner and Dale as the four as a trainer, I'm going to go to you. Well, when I was 9 years old, I went to Kentucky, Darby, my first one, I haven't missed one since. And Seattle won the race. And I just got so enamored by that horse and followed him everywhere and I've talked to the angel Cordero about writing. I've talked to what's now brain freeze jacked up on in the French kid. He's talking. And but one of the greatest things in my career was I was in the Belmont. And I don't remember why, but they were having something pressing downtown. They sent a limousine to Belmont to pick me up and go there and put going. Billy Turner, which I put on a pedestal as a kid and kept in there, got into the limo with me. He and his wife were with me and Tammy was just the forums. And I had him trapped in the limo all the way from Belmont to Manhattan, which you know sometimes can take forever two hours each way. Doing nothing but talking about Seattle. And it's one of the highlights I was back to 9 year old kid thinking about Seattle slew and he told me everything about him from the clinic where they got him from and he was just such a class act to the game. And one of the biggest injustice, of course, miss Jessica horse racing is that once it fired Billy Turner, after winning a Triple Crown, that he never got a breeding right to that horse. And I don't know if people don't know what how that goes, but usually it's customary that every time you train horse retires to stud, you get one or two breeding rights and it gives you allows you to breed your mayor or sell it to someone else every year. That would have been a costly owner's nothing. It would have been money that would have changed Billy Turner's life. And I think that I'm sure he was very sour about that. It's usually, if you don't have a contract, it's just a customary thing. But I thought he was a class act. I think he's only Triple Crown training out in the Hall of Fame. And I want to start the campaign to put him in. Yeah, Timmy. Yeah, very well said, Dale. You know, I dealt with Billy many times on the back stretches in New York and you know the thing is usually you would talk to him whenever it's a Triple Crown on the line, you know, because you know he was the guy that the last surviving guy that did it. And he was always so humble. You know, it wasn't like you were there talking about his horses that he had now. But he was always just a great storyteller. I mean, he told me stories, you know, I remember saying and where with him for like an hour and he was outside his bar and told me stories about this horse he had that was the meanest horse in the history of horse racing that actually killed somebody and is one of his stalls. I'm not gonna mention the name of the horse, but this was years ago. But they were just he was just a master storyteller. You could just sit there and it'd be like talking to your uncle. I mean, he was just a very pleasant individual, always polite, always courteous, and just a class act individual and I remember when American farrow was going for the Triple Crown. That would have been the time when I think Dale went in there with Billy Turner because they had the thing at Rockefeller center and they had a photo op with and Billy Turner and Billy couldn't have been nicer. You know, taking pictures with anybody that I don't have a picture taken with them. It's just a very, very good human being. And he's going to be sorely missed. Yeah, very smart. All the time. Yes, yeah, one of my favorite trainer talk episodes we have done here in the network was when I sat down one on one with Billy Turner before American pharaoh won the Triple Crown in 15, and we sat in the broadcast booth at Belmont park. He spent an hour with me. And then took time afterwards to take pictures and spend more time talking with me after we wrapped up the show. It was one of the highlights of my entire broadcasting career to get a chance to sit down and talk with him and spend time with him. And Dale, maybe that same feeling that you got when you went back to being a 9 year old kid when you were spending time with him. I think I kind of did the same thing. It was just, but what a treat and he is absolutely going to be missed. And I can see the Hall of Fame drum beating now. We should definitely get that going. Yes, we should. Yeah, no doubt about it. And he's from Rochester, New York, my hometown. There you go. There you go. All right, how about three year old champion, guys, from last year. I think most people are down.

"Seattle snow, one mile and one 38 and four personal leads by a hop still on the outside now saying that for us taking over. Then it's run dusty run, swinging to the extreme outside iron constitution. In the stretch here it comes and he's hoping up again and Seattle slow and he's drying clear of the field. Sand also has four links on run dusty run. His run dusty run in second and 703rd. They're hearing the finish line and still Seattle so he's open it up to four and a half. They run dusty running silent run. And the great Seattle slew pulling off the Triple Crown back in 1977 cruguet aboard for the winning ride that afternoon as he was they had a great relationship and it's nice to see them be able to reach that Pinnacle together. It was all because of trainer Billy Turner and he is with us now on trainer talk presented by facing tipton really enjoyable visit in the first half of the program and Billy hearing that race Colin and hearing Seattle slew, get the victory that day and do it so easily has to bring back just a flood of memories for you. Oh, it does. And whether the satisfaction of getting him to go a mile and a half, when you've got the fastest horse in the country gone short and to get him going mile and a half, that was the biggest concern I had and well we got it done. Let me read some of these names to you. And I know you're very much aware of this, but sunny Jim fitzsimmons. Ben Jones. Max hirsch, Lucian Lauren, larrea, Billy Turner junior, the nice list, isn't it? Surely is I was lucky enough to be around when mister Fitz was still training. He was training for the phips and the used to be that it's a serotonin that jump and race would be the third race, and the fourth race was usually a two year old race. And. Mister Fitz had a horse in a race just because he had a lot of, and what they would what he would do is when he wrote because he was stable at the far end of vocal Homer. He would come and after the race, he washes his horse in a far corner of the state of the paddock area at Saratoga, and then walk him home by the time they got home he'd be just about cooled out, which made good sense, but the old man would be sitting there on a bench. So I'd come out of the jacks room, go over there and I'd sit down on the bench. And then I'd quietly ask the old man a question. And I was lucky enough to ask him the right question a few times, and when you do that, all of a sudden he light up, and boom boom boom boom boom. His mind was like a steel trap, and he he would get he gave the information is it just gives just a pleasure to listen to. Yeah. So I was lucky. Because he looked like a decrepit old man, but he wasn't his mind was really sharp. Yeah. Yeah, I believe it. You had the opportunity to make the trip to for sales Kentucky to three chimneys farm after Seattle slew was retired, and he had the chance to go down and visit with him for a while. I know on a couple of different occasions, tell me about that. Well, one of the most memorable one was I had been there in ten years. And when it is a rotunda area, where the horses stallions stars are sort of spread out around the outside and then it'll walk in area in the middle and whatever. And I'm talking to the farm manager there and this table manager and the old slow, you came from the back of his stall upper to the front, and he gave a low necker. And his surprised everybody had never ever seen him show any perfection to a piece to a human being ever, to thence to that to like that. And that really, really moved me because shows that because he I was never lovey David with him. I just trained him and left him alone because he really didn't he he wasn't a lovey dovey kind of horse he liked people, but he was the boss horse and they stand a little bit aloof. And you just let him be that way. Then you can tell. Oh, yeah. By their mannerisms. Oh yeah. Oh yeah, he was the boss horse. He was the kind that if he was out in the range, he would be controlling the herd, and anybody that came around that didn't belong there, he'd kill him. Wow. You know, that's the kind he was, but he wasn't mean. He wasn't mean at all. But that's the kind of horse he would have been. Earlier in the program we talked about how there was a time when you had Seattle slew that sometimes you were criticized for being too patient with him and that is what eventually cost you Seattle so he was taken away from you after the Triple Crown and that I can only imagine how difficult that must have been on you at that time. Well, there really is a the reason it broke the whole thing up was Marge Everett put on a race out there and Hollywood. That there was brand new, and it was just for slow. As you get slew out there and so forth and so on, and she put up a bigger person and the Triple Crown races and all that kind of stuff. And I wasn't prepared for that, and so I was adamantly against that move. Because it just wasn't done. And after the Triple Crown, you gave your horse a little better break. And I'd told a world where we'll probably run him back in the traverse.

"To win the Triple Crown, all those years ago, hard to believe it's been that long. Billy, didn't you spend some time in those early days working with the great burly Cox as well? Well, of course he was the family called the Lewis ledger moved from Long Island down to Pennsylvania Lewis ledger was he was a he was a top notch lawyer, and he graduated with one of the best records that ever came out of Yale law school or some simple thing like that. And he practiced some law and in the city and so forth and he had some heart trouble at one point. He was 6, 7, and a wonderful man, while he decided he did get out of New York and go down to Pennsylvania so they bought a farm down there. And. They bred a few horses and so forth while I was just a little kid I'd help him by get the hay in and then fill the silo and all that kind of stuff. It was farmer. I loved it. I mean, I was loved to have the opportunity to do it, and so forth. Well, they had a they had a three year old cult that was out of a mayor that had won the Maryland hunt cup which is one of the toughest people chasers in the world, and he wasn't he wasn't that sound, so they thought, well, so they just gave him to me. They had a big family argument over him. They gave him to me, because I was just a little kid, and I was riding pretty well. So, and the rest is history he turned that horse turned out to be a very good timber horse, and burly tax well he didn't see, but his wife noticed that the first race of the horse ran in, he ran a brilliant race and finished third, and the only reason he was third is I couldn't control the horse he was just completely out of control. I wait about a hundred and about a 105 then and the head to carry they had to carry about 65, so I was making it up and wait and this and the other thing I was completely out of control. So I was over a good friend of Burley's barely son and daughter were more or less my age and so I was over there at the house and he said to me, he said he had no boy if he needed any if he should have a hand with that horse. So I said, sure, I'd love to have so he took the horse over training. And he just blew him away the next couple of starts and with me riding him. But Burley wrote him himself. For any only let me write him in races. He never let me breathe he may never let me galton. I couldn't do it. There's just too much horse. What ultimately led you to decide to give up writing steeplechase races and then get into training thoroughbreds. Well, I knew that I had no future in it. I loved it and all that kind of stuff and I was very good at schooling horses and getting in a gone well and all that kind of stuff, but I was too big and I had to reduce too hard and I knew that if I had to lose X number of pounds before I ran, before I raced, I didn't ride as well. And so I said, there's no future here. And at that point, Burley Cox was just taking off again and starting to have got a very good stable of steeple chasers. We went from a small stable of while I was there to a big stable, and it had two year olds, and brilliant wanted here about the two year olds. So they went to went to me and foster found rather been so forth and started coming up with one two year old after another that could run. And so that was where it all took off. And it becomes addictive, doesn't it? Oh yeah, oh, yeah. Yeah. What do you remember about first getting started? It was a difficult. Well, no, because you had other good two year olds. Well, no, no, the thing is, I just had his horse. Yeah. But the thing is, then the power is to be in those days. They looked around at the talent. And when somebody needed a trainer, they just said, well, this boy do you. And I got very lucky the James P mills, who became Hickory tree. They were just early in the business, and they said, and so they took me as their trainer. And at the same time, Jonathan shepherd was at the working for Burley or he beheaded the year before he'd been there. And he went to George strawbridge. And then that whole thing took off, but they all came from the nucleus at burleigh. And, of course, before, before us, with burleigh, was Mikey Smith, who came what really was the greatest craner of Steve wood chase was at the country's ever seen. He trained more different kinds of horses for more different kinds of people. And for the one every race known to man. And that kind of stuff. But he was Burley's best student. I have often heard Billy Turner described as being a true horseman. What does that mean? Well, what a hoard of horsemen can do is be given a horse and you figure out you figure out what their capabilities are, and then what you think that they're best effort would be and you try to figure out a way to get.

"He knows a thing or two about the Triple Crown. And that's because he's won it. How about that? He's one of only ten trainers to have successfully guided a horse through all three legs of the Triple Crown. He is trainer. Billy Turner, the 75 year old native of Rochester, New York in 1977, he went on a very magical ride with the great Seattle slew and Billy joining me for the full hour on the program here tonight. Billy, welcome to the show. It's an absolute pleasure to be sitting here with you. So now to be here because you're going great things for the game. Well, I appreciate that. You've done some amazing things as well. Can you believe it's been 38 years since Seattle slew? No, I really can't. I really, really can't. I thought that after slowing affirmed and secretariat, I thought that, well, it might be ten years, but not 30. Yeah. Yeah, how great is it to be able to tell people? Yeah, I won the Triple Crown. You wrote really never say it that way. I just don't, because well, I had a phenomenal horse. And he overcame everything. And still won the Triple Crown and all that kind of stuff. And I've just considered myself very lucky to have such a horse and of course people come up to me and say, well, when are you going to win another Triple Crown? And I said, well, if I can find a horse as good as Seattle slew, it might do it. What made Seattle slew so special? Well, he was a phenomenal talent. He was not only he had he had all the angles to make to be a running racehorse. He had the buddy had a brilliant mind. And he and all he wanted to do was run. There wasn't you never had a class problem with him in a race because he really knew that he was the dominant horse. And the other horses knew it, too. And horses didn't want to run with him. Yeah. Yeah, when he pulled off the Triple Crown right here at Belmont park, that afternoon was extremely emotional for you, wasn't it? Well, what it really was was a total relief because I had said I had said after the after the champagne, I told a couple of friends and I didn't know what I was a reporter. For the daily news, but I just said well you know if I can't win the Triple Crown with this horse, I haven't done my job. And he wrote it. So the heat was intense from there. That'll increase the pressure level just a little bit. Oh, did it? It really did because well I wasn't worried about winning the Derby and I wasn't very winning the pregnancy but how in the world was I going to get this big wild running son of a gun to go a mile and a half in the Belmont. That was a very, very serious thing with me and when I put him in training at the beginning of his three year old year we were stable at Hialeah, and we'd take him out there. We trained him one hour every single day. He is he never got a day off, because he had so much energy you had to just control it. And I'm always I'm just thinking how and world am I going to get him around the Belmont mile and a half, because I know we can do the others, but the rest of it is going to be a going to be a problem. How did you do it? Well, first of all, we started out jogging him down at Hialeah and they have a three 8th of a mile shoot. If you've never been to highly, it was a wonderful old race track. In fact, it was one of the premier race tracks of all time. And they had a three 8 of a mile shoot where they'd run two year olds in March. The three eighths of a mile straight away. And we'd go back into that shoot and we jog him jagan left for ten minutes and write for ten minutes and so that's 20 minutes a jargon you've got a long way. You're going about four or 5 miles by then sure. And so we do that and then we take him out and go around the race track jogging. And then we got to the point where we start him galloping and the last part of it and we're galloping half a mile no more and pull him up. Because he was so big and strong and that. If he ever ran off, he would. That would blow his mind he would be ruined. Okay. And so we worked it out and increased it a little bit and finally got him so we could gallop him a mile and 8th in all that kind of stuff and then the rest was history. We raised him twice. And 5 months and ran him 7 days of a mile at Hialeah, and he beat he ran against a horse that had had the same record he does three wins three three stars three wins, a horse called white rammer. And he was a fast horse and they came out of the gate together and went down the backside little ways and then slew just drew off and folks track record. Yeah. That stood till they close a racetrack. I can remember there were times that you were actually criticized for maybe being even a little too patient with Seattle slew. Well, no horse in the history of the Triple Crown had ever been trained like that. And but I knew the horse and what we're trying to do is control control his energy because he just he fed off the crowds and the more the crowds got around the more the more he fed off it in a stronger he got his just like one of those weightlifters and all the getting ready for a match their muscles just keep building and building and building. And that's the way slow did. And he looked insignificant in a star by himself. But when you brought him out there, when you brought him out there and put him in a competitive situation, all of a sudden he was massive. And well, so we had to figure out how to control that and well, wound up in the Belmont wound up being as easy as race. Yeah, I read a quote from Jean cruguet, his regular rider who had said that if it hadn't been for yourself and his exercise rider Mike Kennedy, he would have been in that case. Right. So I think that has to mean something when you hear John talk about the work that you did with him and that Mike did. What was Mike's role? Mike algin Mike wrote him all the time, and. He was a steeplechase rider and it came over from Ireland and he started out writing for the Raymond guest who brought.

"That is his two year old son of not this time out of a mare, get this named werewolf. His name you just heard is howling time and he is running tomorrow in the street sense stakes at Churchill that will be his second career start after that maiden breaking win that you just heard from Travis stone. And don't forget a few weeks ago, wilkin was talking about seeing a ghost in his house. So that seems like the perfect way to welcome you to a Halloween edition of I ask, they answer with trainer Dale Romans turf writer Tim wilkin and guys, I'm gonna tell you, we're gonna have a lot of fun talking about some Halloween topics later in the show, but I'm gonna kick it off and start with a couple of questions that we received from HR N listeners this week and here's topic one. HR N nation wants to know who was the first horse to catch your attention and make you guys fall in love with the sport, Dale, why don't you kick it off for us? Well, that's a tough one for me because I don't remember seeing the first door. So I told you I went for four my mother said when she took me in the bar and I was 9 months old. But I think when I really realized what racing was all about and what drove racing, The Kentucky Derby was Seattle slew. That's the first Derby I ever went to was 9 years old, my great uncle took me and I haven't missed one since. But I just fell in love with Seattle. And I told this story a million times, so. I just followed him everywhere he went and listened to everything. You could about him watch all his races of talk to Billy Turner to get to spend two hours at a limousine one time going into Manhattan with Billy Turner he told me I was loose stories till he was sick of me. So I got sick. And so I called over to pharmaceutical I've never really seen live can not come over and I'd like to see him. They said, come on over. And I got in a car drove over. They had him all shined up. Probably mount studied him in the middle like they do showing him off. I went up, petty him on the neck. There's somewhere in grandma arm and wouldn't let go. Good to hell out of me. So you don't like me as much as I like you. You know, it's funny you bring that up, Dale, because the listener who submitted this question to us on Twitter, he actually said that his story, his favorite horse that got him hooked on the game when he was 7 years old, Seattle slew. How about that? Well, that's pretty, that's pretty good Seattle. And I'm sure that American feral hooked a lot of kids when he came and wanted a Triple Crown or justified. But that's when I realized what a big deal the Derby was in racing was. Timmy. Well, when I was growing up in Rochester, New York, I didn't know difference between a horse and a cow. I mean, it was I was basketball player and all through high school as a basketball player, but I kind of got hooked a little bit watching secretary and Triple Crown. Then 5 years later, then late four years later, Seattle slew was a Triple Crown. And then I'm in college. And I'm still playing basketball, but then I realized I wasn't going to play in the NBA. So, in 1978, when affirmed an alley that came around, I got really, really hooked on that. And from there, I thought, well, geez, after a firm one the Triple Crown, I said, this Triple Crown thing, they're going to have a Triple Crown winner every year. So I just started following the races in the spring, figuring out who was going to win the Triple Crown every year. And of course, we didn't have another one until American pharoah. So I would say that my aborted basketball career sent me into horse racing. I became a huge fan and I decided that's what I wanted to do. I wanted to write about horses because of my journal my major was journalism because there was no math and journalism and I couldn't count to ten. So I became a big fan of affirmed an allied out of that rivalry and that's how I got hooked. Yeah, I can't relate to those stories of the 1970s, guys. I was 6 in 1977, and I was 7. In 1978. So you've got to rub it in, don't you? I can not relate to those. I can't relate to EZ goer. That was the horse that got me hooked when he won the Travers in 1989. I was along the rail at Saratoga. I was hooked for life and then holy bull came along and that was it. It was over for me. I think easy go hooked a lot of people. And racing. He just kind of took America by storm, especially in New York. I mean, they hated fat day outside of New York because we're getting beaten the Preakness in The Kentucky Derby. You know, fat days might really good friend. And he told me if he had one too over race to ride. If he could go back and do one race over, it would be the easy go with pregnancy. Yeah, he'd like to have that one back. Yeah. That was, to me, personally, that's to me that's a great story so I've ever seen. I think those were two great jockeys. They were playing each other. They were both real great races. They were two great racehorses and Sunday silence and easygoing. I just think if anybody hadn't seen it, it's a new to the game. Go back to watch that you will be hooked. And that's when they say the Sunday sounds savage, DCR, right? I don't think sourcing that day, but they were they went at it back and forth. Pretty hard. I thought they tried to bite them coming down the stretch. He may have I don't remember that part that he may have, but it was two some great jockeys and great horses and I mean that'll make a lot of fans. You just go watch that race. That was such a great rivalry too, because it was east coast West Coast. And it was so divided, you were either easygoing or Sunday silence. There was no in between..

Super Bowl LV: The Goat vs The Future

"Well a ref- last time. We talked to you wild card weekend with six playoff games over two days and you pretty much didn't have any time to eat or sleep this weekend. We only had two games both on sunday. So is your home. Look by comparison on a weekend like this much cleaner. I can say that and not only do i have time to eat. I have time to cook. I'm very excited. That's awesome well. Let's start with the early game. The bucks beat the packers. Thirty one to twenty six tampa bay went up twenty eight to ten in this game. What was the key for them building on this big lead. I think a lot of it's just the pressure they were able to produce the packers reduced to having lucas patrick and billy turner on their offensive line and it gets shaquille barrett and jason paul. There really isn't enough. I mean they're used to having a top three offensive line in the nfl. In fact both of those teams are and without that aaron rodgers is under pressure much more often that affected a lot of throws and of a lot more often than we typically see second and eight jerseys. Jason pierre paul. I think that was a big part of it. But also i mean as many times as tampa bay receivers willing to drop the ball. I mean they are better receivers than the packers have in that secondary in that easy pretty good secondary. A huge storyline throughout this game was also the bucks on third down conversions. What did you see from them. So well under pressure a lot of it is just the packers third down defense was just not very well designed and this has been a typical problem for mike patton and his defenses. And i think the that the buccaneers kind of organised out of their game plan around what they would expect to see on third down and so you ended up seeing like for a brief period of time. They had one hundred percent success rate on third down and like a ten percent success rate on first and second down it was kind of nuts. But yeah i think for the most part. They anticipated some blitzes. This saw man coverage they decided. Hey you know i. I think that chris godwin. Or mike evans can beat this guy and this guy was usually kevin king but they were able to win a variety of throughout the game especially on third down where i think things were just a little bit more predictable for them in the second half. Tom brady three interceptions on three consecutive possessions. Third down to brady throws it under pressure. The packers failed to convert the last two of those into any kind of points. How we're the bucks able to hold that lead after three turnovers. Some of it is the individual talent of the players that they've gotten a secondary thing. Carlton davis is really put a stamp on the nfl especially in the postseason. But he's going to be one of those rising players to watch next season that will be identifying and he's played very well but i think some of it is just to have an enormously fast defense and i think was the kind of got a feel for what the packers were attempted to do offensively. They just had a better understanding of what needed to be done. We're the players needed to be in how to hit those landmarks because they weren't really being ton of their defense. From a schematic perspective. They were just kinda getting to their landmarks. a lot. faster. Whether against the runner of the pass the defining play this game was packers coach. Matt leflore making the call to kick a field goal on fourth and goal from the eight yard. Line down by eight points with just over two minutes. Left and tom brady on the other side of that ball. Instead of going forward here on fourth and goal makes this a five point game again really surprised by that decision joe. I thought that they would go for it on fourth down a reef where you land on this decision by matt leflore not to go forward on fourth down. I think it was a really bad decision. And i think you know based off of what my twitter timeline is saying. That's fairly universal agreement. Interestingly wasn't as strong analytical decision to necessarily go for it on fourth down versus kick. And i think you take a look at some of the calculators that are out there and you know it was better to go for it than to kick it. But given the fact that they had three timeouts plus they were ahead of the two minute warning. There's a little bit more time than you. Typically anticipate so from an analytical perspective. It doesn't seem like as bad of a decision. But honestly i think that you take into account some of these situational factors like the fact that the packers have the best red zone offense. Nfl history as far back as her. Dagoes which i think goes all the way back to like. Thank you ninety. I think that plays a role. I think the fact that tom brady is on the other side of the ball with a bevy of weapons and a healthy offensive line. I think that plays a role. And i think kind of every additional bit of context that we add to this decision makes those analytical models a little bit more often favor of going for it instead of kicking that field goal because they needed to have those two scores. It just doesn't really make a lot of sense of the was

"Get in the zone. AutoZone, the Buccaneers just punted. Radios thrown a touchdown pass seven. Nothin bucks. Green Bay will be at 10 after the punch. First in 10, Rogers is squinting into the sun in the gun. 1st and 10 at the snap takes the head up. Those passed laterally caught on the five by the tight end, Tommy in quickly grabbed by two takes them on his shoulder to the far sideline and out of bounds carries him like a mule. About 12 and picks up to on that lateral throw to the far side by Rogers. Huge part of the Packers game is the R P O almost every run. They have has a pass option to it that they're just pulled it quick screen to the tight end. But now this, can't we missed him his block on the outside or would have been a much bigger game second down from the Packers, 12 shotgun snap, the Rogers left tackle, buckle was hit from behind him. We go check for a second time back at the five set by Jason Pierre Paul jumped on his back and wrote him down loss of seven on the play the second set given up by the Green Bay offensive line back to the Green Bay five in a matchup to watch all day long. No couple weeks ago, David Bachtiar e one of the best left tackles in the business. Suffered that knee injury. And now Billy Turner in that spot against Jpp be protected. Aaron Rodgers blindside didn't do it very well. Right there. Now. Rogers will be in the gun five yards away from his center, but he is standing in the end zone to our left. Swimming into the sun. Third down 15 Rogers in the gun looks into six defensive backs belt high shotgun snap. Got it rolls to the near side rolls to the sideline at the goal line goes down the sideline, leaping to any catch at the 29 on the sideline by his receiver Lazard right in front of his coach, right in front of his bench below us here, 28 of Green Bay and on 3rd and 15, Kurt Warner. Packers get a completion of 23 from Rogers and a first down to their 28. That was just an interesting play. They roll to the right hand side. They have three receivers over there at three different levels. Nice job by the receiver to push up the field and come back right down the sideline and a great throw by Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers is under center from his Green Bay 28. Moving left to right, not the snap, drops back and throws a quick lateral pass by Adams 30 step on his way. 35 579 40 runs up the sideline ones on a real estate of the 43 Green Bay runs right into the Tampa Bay sideline. Across the way. Adam's a catch around 15 a packer first down to the 43. Another one of those are pose. They just put Davante Adams outside in a stack position and so tough Press because he's so quick off the line. So if you play.

"This week's green and gold Friday reward Third in about four snap to Roger's blitz on Roger's Lofts it deep down the middle. Get a man out there. It's M V s and he is gone. 10 5! And zone touchdown. Green Bay Packers 72 Yards Packers with a lead they would never relinquish. From that point on, they thumped the Bears 35 16 in last night's regular season finale, one that assures Green Bay of the top seed throughout the NFC playoffs, not to mention next weekend off joining his life. Voice of the Packers, way Larrabee and Wtmj. So let's start with the week off win. There's there's the school of thought that says, Well, you know you're on a roll. You want to keep playing. There's the other school of thought that says, Take the week off. Enjoy it. Put your feet up. Relax. And men which way do you come down on the bye week? In a normal year, I would say, Let's say happy bye week, but in the covert era and not quite the same, you know, players don't get the same break because they're not going back home. They're not traveling back to college or whatever, you know they're not doing those kinds of things. So this is going to be an interesting week to watch how Matt and his staff handle it. With this football team. They're going to get a few days off, then they're going to kind of get back to work at it back into a routine. You know, this is different This year. This whole season has been different. And it's been all about survival. Wayne, I believe we just wrapped up watching the greatest receiving season in the history of a green Bay Packer. Do you agree or disagree? Well, e. I agree. I mean, the numbers say so. Yeah, He's been that good. How dominant has he become a guest and you sort of competition. And you know how much does that open up other guys? You saw MVS make a big play. Obviously another big drop. How key is that? For the rest of the receiving options on this team. That Devante is damn near uncomfortable. Yeah, You know, he draws a lot of attention, so that means a lot of these guys will get, you know they'll get single coverage. There's no doubt about that. I thought that was interesting about yesterday's game is that you know Aaron Jones, relatively quiet. 11 carries 42 yards, 3.8 yard average Davante Adams relatively quiet, They got him going a little bit in the fourth quarter, six catches, 46 yards and a touchdown. I mean, that's usually a quarter for Davante Adams. But the Bears did a good job with him in the Packers had to go elsewhere and they were able to do that, and I think that's the beauty of this football team. You know, everybody was concerned is Aaron Rodgers have enough weapons? Well, when you know Dominic Daphne caught a touchdown pass, Hey, was the 13th player to score a touchdown for Green Bay? That's incredible when you think about it, So I think really Yesterday's game in a nutshell, showed the versatility of offense that they have and the people they have running it and You know, it's also interesting when you look at this game, and the Bears held the football 11 minutes longer than the backers did. They ran 74 plays to 44 plays for Green Bay. The game was hanging in the balance in the fourth quarter was 21 to 16 little over 11 minutes ago in the game, and the Packers went out of seven minute drive, resulting and Aaron Jones four yard touchdown run. That's what championship teams do. It's not that they blow everybody out from the word go. They get into these dogfights, especially against the divisional opponent like Chicago. And when it's there comes a point in time when they say, Okay, enough of this. This ends now, and that's exactly what the Packers did. Wailer be with us here on Wisconsin's more than use on WTMJ. Wait Gina earlier this morning, we're talking about the defense and how it feels like we haven't had these big gaping issues over the last five or six weeks. Is this defense plan? Good enough to win the Super Bowl championship? Yes, it is, um, you know, and again, you gotta look at these teams in each year. Do the Packers have to be as good as Holmgren Super Bowl Championship team and 96? No, they don't even have to be as good as the defense was in 2010. They're not. They don't have to be as good as the 2014 team That should have won the Super Bowl. But if not for that mishap in Seattle in the last two minutes of that game on the championship game, But they only have to be as good as the era that they're in the season that they're playing. This defense is good enough that we've seen it. The last two weeks in particular, but I've seen it over the last I would say month maybe five weeks of this defense has started to play at a different level and the thing the biggest thing is, the florist said yesterday they're rallying to the football. There's more energy on that side of the football the last few weeks and that's what they'll need carrying forward. Guys, do you realize how long we've been talking about? The Packers went over the barriers yesterday. It's been almost five minutes. We haven't said a thing about the offensive line and the fact that it was thinking David Bachtiar E. It's amazing how well that reconfigured offensive line played yesterday, giving up just one sec for three yards win. Yeah, exactly. And the Bears had their people. I mean, Akeem Hicks played in this game. Obviously Khalil Mack. He got that sack you're talking about, but beyond that, you know, And it's the person till itty of personnel and an offensive line Now don't get me wrong. They have talent. They have three Pro bowl caliber players. I'm that line when David is healthy, but the strength of that line all season long has been its versatility. And you know Bachtiar, he was out for three games. Earlier in the year, Billy Turner moved over there to left tackle and did a pretty good job..

I pointed out the a few minutes ago that if you're born on a leap day you celebrate a birthday every four years. Are you really eighty? Yes this is my. I never dreamed it possible because All my peers. And and so forth. And Sean have all passed away. Well thankfully you are still here with us in. You're able to join me here for a few minutes this morning. Yeah how are you gonNA celebrate your eightieth birthday billy Very very Very quietly and you know when you get to my age you don't you don't advertise your speech thankful for what you you're here billy when I say the name Seattle slew. What are some of the first things that pop into your head well just just a phenomenal athletes phenomenal Al Animal Very intelligent and Phenomenal speed and he could and there was just no quitting and yeah he was ultra tough. You know we talk about horses today. Billy some people say well you have to train them differently than you did. Back in the seventies and the sixties and the fifties and there are different types of horses but look we've seen two triple crown winners in recent years ending a long drought How how do you? How do you get a horse? Ready for the triple Crown Billy. What's what's the key. Well the thing is I was scorch obvious enough to be surrounded by some of the greatest a couple of the grave. Well couple of number of the greatest trainers of of our times and one was sunny. Jim Fitzsimmons in the learning. But Assad Ben Jones and Van Jones as you know we changed for Kalua met and five Derby winners and two triple crown. We're at all that kind of stuff and and the same with the FITZSIMMONS and One thing that That a pointed out to me quietly on the side is Then Jones exercise boys role hundred and sixty pounds or more and I yeah that's a that's a lot and he said They said well. You said you know you You don't You you you You don't doubt the hell out of him every day but you sit on them for an hour and that's one thing both Fitzsimmons in Jones. They would the horse would go out and be ridden for an hour. That is not done today. At all and What that does is it. Just get some strong without putting any undue stress on their on their legs and so forth but it gets their back strong and the the It's the back that vic collapses when the Horse Starts Tiring and it kind of collapses enough so then that puts all the pressure on the ligaments and then you start getting bowed tendons and all that kind of stuff. Well you avoid all that if you have a horse. Well conditioned and taking them out and Galvin and two miles is a waste of time Just things like that and Fitzsimmons said. Never give him a day off. Never get well. He said if they're sick or something like that but but never given the day off and Maybe if you're getting a horse ready for the triple crown and Those are those things are are But that doesn't mean you got the hell out of them everyday document trainer Billy Turner here on the Horse Racing Radio Network celebrating his eightieth birthday on this leap day here on February twenty-ninth Billy when you sit there today on your birthday and you think back on your career in all the success that you've had obviously Seattle slew is always going to hold a special place but is there another moment or two that. Come to mind that when you think back on your career that for whatever reason you're never gonNA forget well They probably right after she had US knew. I had a horse called Czarevich who is One of the first news agencies to Race on dirt in this country and And He was a. He was a very very tough for us to To to to handle because he he walked to the racetrack on his hind legs. Just like command and I I thought well I don't know anything about the case but I'll I'll just let him do that and He turned out to be a good horse. You only ran three thirteen times but he he won eight and he was second in the others. So there you go billy. I remember a few years ago when I was Belmont. Cover one of the triple crown. Say I guess maybe it was even American Feroz Year. You were kind enough to spend a little time with me in the radio booth and sit down for an interview and I told everybody you won't find a nicer person in horse racing than Billy Turner and you're kind enough to spend a little time with me here this morning too so I appreciate that and it was great to hear your voice and happy eightieth birthday.
