Mark Jackson is the reason why Mark Jackson isn’t an NBA head coach
"Joe. Lake. Up after mark was let go had a bunch of quotes This was one of them that I found co part of it was that he couldn't get along with anybody else in the organization and look you did a great job. I'll always compliment him mini respects but you. Can't have two hundred people in the organization, not like you. Okay. and he said when I say the organizations whole I don't just mean the team just fifteen players that are involved in the coaching staff I mean everybody there's two hundred employees here. So we look at the organization going forward and the kind of coach we want and not just the performance everything else all these factors matter. We took all of that into account. So we have the player part of it. We have the owner part of it. We knew the front office didn't like him when one of the assistance. was busted for recording Jackson in meetings to play for the front office, which again that actually becomes a pro mark Jackson part of it. The Mark Jackson staff was not good enough the ownership in front office told him repeatedly, the staff is good. Enough Mark said we have the best staff going he and scalping apparently got into it and scalloping he was reassigned the front office didn't like that part of it. So we have the players have the staff we have the ownership we have the front office. Let's also talk about some of the other stuff that's just let's face it. Weird Jackson's Amana Faith I. Don't question anyone's faith. I just say to you leave me alone and I'll do my thing That's the way I've always operated and that rubs people wrong way when he was a head coach but also would find time to get to La whenever he had a convenient off day to go and do that. It's tough to tell a man of faith. Hey, you know what don't be that interested in God? That's that's an almost impossible conversation but if I was at ESPN or anywhere and said, Hey, you know what? I can't watch football this weekend. Because I have this higher calling eventually it worked they'd be like, Hey, you know what? Man Like this is all part of the job being availalbe around is very difficult in tough thing to navigate as I'm not even hundred percent comfortable doing it but I'd have to say employer at the time being frustrated by it actually makes a little bit of sense and I think there's other things that just bumped people out when curry had his ankle issues he was brought up in it was kind of a playful thing curry's brought up they put the holy oil on his ankle and. Jackson's wife at the time and Pete Jackson was like look like he had chronic ankle problems and now he doesn't. So you figure it out. That's one of those things where people like wait what Jackson also had some issues off the core where he was caught up extortion deal and I'm not even really getting on his case for that because I think a lot of things happen to people that are public figures that goes on normal people's lives. But the public figure becomes the of jokes on and on and on. He also said when asked about Jason Collins availability years ago. He said not in my locker room. So it came off as if he was a homophobe because there's evidence that he is, and then when he was asked to clear that up, he said look I know Jas I know his family and I'm praying for them right now. Hey, man you save your fucking prayers. Okay. That's the kind of stuff that just doesn't play no matter who you are and I think the. Most important part of all of this because I guess I'm still maybe a little surprised that he doesn't have a job because other people have been on TV and not been great on. TV. I've looked at other coaches that haven't had great runs and there's been plenty of people that have gotten second chances by the way both black and white. So when I see people out raged that he's been blackballed or as. Shannon Sharpe said White Bald or Kendrick Perkins recently, just saying like all of these things that I just going off on the idea that Mark Jackson doesn't have job it really feels like, okay. Are you informed and but yet you've made up your mind decided not to change your mind or are you uninformed and I think so many people screaming about this or like Oh wait that's right. You know maybe either moments you had just now listening to this like Oh, that's right. I've nothing personal against Mark Jackson. He's one of my favorite college basketball players of all time all-time. You guys know how huge of a Saint John's Fan I am and I actually was you know as a little kid be like dude I can't believe he's going this late in the draft is GonNa be awesome and he was awesome in the knicks I felt so vindicated I was. Like and I could refer team right one day I love Mark Jackson and I was right. But when I listened to him on the broadcast Van Gundy I, think him being on the broadcast Van Gundy chances of getting a job because if I was worth a half a billion dollars or more and had the opportunity to own a team or owned a team right now and I'd go. Van Gundy's on all of these little things like, Hey, look at how they blind me Anthony Davis on free throws already have them on the other side of the court. So he can seal for Deepak smaller offender will there be an adjustment. Hey, what's going on with the substitution? Hey, this rule's actually wrong. Why are they doing it? This Way Jeff Van Gundy will say, here's Hey Jason tatum something's wrong with him. He's the first pointed out it happens multiple times every single broadcast Jeff Van Gundy is easily the best NBA analyst in the game right now. Mark doesn't do any of those things and I. Don't know if that's just him not being comfortable in that role but he's a coach. He's a former player and he doesn't do any of those things. He'll say, Hey, this guy's not just a great score. He's a great individual. He's a human being. Okay. So and so doesn't get enough credit for shooting. Okay. In everything is results based. If the shot goes in, it was a great shot at the shot doesn't go in Hey, that's the guy that shouldn't be taking the shot. It's very. It's very minimal depth and when. You have people that make these decisions. You're almost instead of looking at the resume in Golden State which is on its surface again resume. You'd say Yeah. What like six years? Nicholas gives Scott his shot young team garnered play defense that's hard to do. But I think being next to Jeff. When Jeff runs circles around him on the broadcast. It it might remind go wait why why is this one guy way better talking about the game than the other guy so I think the best thing market do would not be on the broadcast with Jeff and who knows what might happen. So I just think the more we look at it and hey man trust me this is not white guy decide to push back on racism segment because I've. Probably done with those the rest of my life. I'm seeing specific to this one because the NCAA numbers are atrocious. The ABC's the head coaching. Diversity that we have in the pro sports leagues still is not what it needs to be I'm not pushing back on any of those things. But when it comes specific to mark Jackson, there are the informed in the uninformed, and hopefully if you've resisted this, you're more informed now.
At least 47 arrested in Seattle protests that police declared a riot
"Protesters against police violence packed the streets of Seattle again this weekend, and on Saturday, things turned violent on Capitol Hill Seattle police declared a riot and arrested forty seven demonstrators. Annika Carlson is a public defender in snohomish. County, and she was at Saturday's protest as a legal observer with the national lawyers guild decked out in a bright green hat invest that are well known to Seattle police. Carlson told me she believes her team of observers was targeted by PD, so I was actually sort of off on the intersection with maybe a I'd say most fifteen to twenty people around me. several press people several clearly marks medic people myself a couple. Other observers none of us engaged anything that could be misconstrued as as interfering at all. When they began pepper, spraying and throwing We're blessed balls, which are essentially sort of flash grenades with pepper spray inside them throwing those and one of those directly hit and burst on my ankle. So cutting over mangoes, tearing through my clothes and All of that. And what did you think in that moment i? Mean it, you say, burn through your clothes. What was that like in that moment I actually honestly thought that they had broken ankle. It's that kind of thing, so so the personally for it was incredibly shocking. For twenty years and never had to happen to me before I'm in twenty years all over the country and never had that happened to me before, and you say it was shocking. You don't recall anything that happened in the moments leading up to that that would have led you to think that's. Keeping their use of the forest, so I was standing there with my camera videotaping what was happening? We as a policy, do not engage. Obviously, we don't speak with officers. We don't speak with protesters. We you know so I was standing there silently, clearly marked as an observer, fairly simply filling the use by multiple different officers of multiple different tools that point, but I think there's you know several videos out there that show, just a wide use, the at that point to move the crowd, and absolutely indiscriminately firing into the crowd. Toss the crowd. Annika you out. There is a legal observer, but you weren't alone. Can you tell us more about what happened and who was injured? I was there as the supervisor of about twenty other Ellos, legal observers stars who were there throughout the day and I. WanNa. Mention that it's not just myself who was injured while doing this that there were multiple reports from other observers on the ground of injuries that they were suffering throughout the day, multiple observers, having blackball thrown specifically in their direction being. Being targeted in that regard, multiple os having officers, either use their hands directly or bike to push them out of the way one of our observers sprayed at close proximity in the face with pepper spray so many issues throughout the day that I started to lose track of of who was getting injured as they were there, observing and again I want to. Remind folks that we were told that we would be safe while we were there and that we were clearly identified. It was a violent day on Saturday and Annika Seattle police have said that nearly sixty officers were injured on Saturday that rocks and bottles were thrown at them that they were hit with projectiles. They've posted a number photos of what appear to be a variety of injuries. And eventually they declared a riot, and so I'm wondering from your perspective. What you saw was the response by police. Saturday was necessary and proportional. I would say that it absolutely wasn't necessary or proportional, and in fact I think their response is essentially fueled things into a bigger and bigger situation that they escalated every step of the way in terms of using force in terms of going after people all things that made the situation worse and in terms of the officers injuries. Some of the injuries pictures I've seen are consistent with the injury that I have from speedy myself and I think it's important for people to understand that the officer speaking about explosives being thrown at them. oftentimes you can see in the videos. It's the explosives that they're throwing at the crowd. That is bouncing back at them. I saw several officers drop explosives onto the themselves that they were doing things It's that indiscriminate use of those items in the first. First place that brings them into the picture. The police brought those weapons to the scene, and then through those weapons out into the crowd. And when it bounced back, they were injured I. also think it's important to know that we're talking about police themselves who are in full riot gear throwing those same items they're now saying hurt them out into a proud that is not dressed for riot. People who are wearing t shirts and shorts, and that sort of thing. Annika, so many people are following news coverage of these protests, but they haven't been there in person to see for themselves so as someone who's been there on the ground. What do you want people to know about what's happening? But I think what's important to know is that it is a situation in which everybody in the crowd is being punished the same way by PD so regardless of what individual protesters are doing regardless of what actually has been happening by Cisco individuals. People who? We don't know why they're there what they're doing It's sort of a Kintu if you know that one kid in the class sheets on exam and you're failing the entire class and the situation. Individual protesters are doing certain things, and the entire crowd is bearing the punishment of that. Annika Carlson is a public defender in snohomish county and a legal observer with the national lawyers. Guild Annika. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us today. Thank you reading.
A Turning Point: Race Relations In Sports
"It has now been more than four weeks in George. Floyd was murdered nearly a month since we all watched him. Take his last breaths. It feels like so much is different, but real actionable change that takes time. Many who took to the streets in protests have now resumed their daily lives, so now seems appropriate to discuss how sport will handle affairs moving forward. As North American teams and Leagues Continue Their Return to play processes. It is vital that the conversations and promises made when the racial issue was hottest that they do not go away. In a few moments, we will welcome in our panel to discuss how that should happen, but first a look at how we got here in the first place. He will have color have been argued about beliefs, and that's not right. That's not right by any was standards. The point he was making gut twisted from the start. The beginning when Colin Kaepernick I made is public protests peacefully heap I sat on the bench during the national anthem to bring awareness. There's a lot of things that need to change once one specifically police brutality. There's people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. It was the summer of two thousand sixteen, when he bursts truly used his platform as an NFL quarterback to speak out against systemic racism by police in the weeks leading into that preseason payment. San Francisco capper Nick had watched. We all had. To white officers pinning down Alton Sterling. And pumping. into his chest and back. He saw the traffic stop in Minnesota when Philander Casteel was killed in front of his girlfriend in charge. And captured it could not understand how mental health therapist Charles Kinsey could be shot by police when he was lying on the ground with his arms up in the air, people of color have been targeted by police. Cops are getting paid leave. For killing people. That's not right. That's not right by anyone's standards. And yet from the beginning law in. pre-game gesture was misrepresented and downright manipulated. The Christ came that he was disrespecting the flag that it was a slap in the face to military personnel. But when active soldiers pointed out, they serve to provide their citizens with the freedom of speech that capture nick was exercising. That narrative quickly was quashed when army veterans who had been in battle, echoed that very sentiment out of national football league buildings team needs I would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem personally. I, look at that as a salute to the people who have paved the way for us. Our Organization believes that. You should. Respect the flag and so you'll save those individual decisions to expression show. On individual form. And that became the prevalent message. Don't do it here. Stick to sports. The underlying tone. How dare you protest without our approval we're. Do you get off? Colin Kaepernick criticizing anyone in another uniform. Right the men and women lead for this, I- scenic. First hand. For. Somebody do that to get paid millions of dollars. It's ridiculous. Cabinet remained undeterred. United States Army Bet. Nate! Boyer who did tours of duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan encouraged him to kneel and not sit. By, taking a knee voyeur told him you show your respect for fallen brothers that way. So capture nick did. And then more NFL players followed. And yet the public and political conversation in the US would not steer toward police brutality. No matter how much star athletes peacefully attempted to. And the leader in America's biggest chair. Amy Shirley Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners? When somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a job appealed right now out each fire. I! Capture Nick became a source of division for standing up against injustice. He hasn't taken a snap since that twenty sixteen season. And at this year Super Bowl USA. Today's jared bell minced no words on why that is I. Think it's pretty obvious. He's been blackballed for Colin Kaepernick not to have a job is just. It's the worst look for the NFL. No conversation was more dominant inside NFL. Locker rooms that season than the Kapernick one teams are made up of players of all ages of all backgrounds of so many ethnicities. If you actually want to listen to different perspectives. If you're an athlete who would want to hear what your peers had to say, there would be no shortage of takes to soak in. But fundamentally the want would be to understand capper knicks fundamental point. After George Floyd one of the League's biggest stars reminded us that many still didn't I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Maybe that was the crossroads moment because the reaction to. It felt like something had changed almost as. That won't cut. It anymore drew. brees in the rest of the NFL were told right away, the new. Orleans quarterback came under fire. The players in the league had just about enough of the establishment silence. They had captured message. They were not gonNA. Let owners and Roger Goodell get away with it this time. Would have other Jewish Knowledge George if I was. I was George Void. Jewish. And say hi in. Regard. To me right. Breezes all pro receiver found Dallas's bruising runner and Houston's electrifying quarterback, and Kansas City Super Bowl Mvp. And Obi. And they all let you know. We. Condemn Racism and assistant. Matic oppression of black people. National League, admit wrong and silence our players from protesting. Also. Black lives matter black lives matter. Like loves. To Have Patrick Mahomes the next superstar the NFL. Front and center. That was massive. And the very next night the commissioner uttered the words you never imagined would happen. We the National Football League Immune. We were wrong for not listening NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League believe black lives matter. Progress. Probably a step forward. You want to believe so. The day after the commissioner changed his tune, breeze went to social media again. He'd already made his hollow apologies without actually saying sorry, and he finally seemed to be listening to what some teammates had to say, and after all of that even drew brees somewhat stood up to the president. It won't Change Donald Trump of course, but maybe it will make others think. Perhaps it will create more uncomfortable conversations to allow for a greater understanding among all of us. And at the very least it has given others throughout sport. To have the freedom to finally say their piece open believing they may at last be heard. Or country is in, trouble. Basic reason is race. You're seeing an example of future. That's fighting for you for you. Right now a fine for you got a grandfather that march legs. Dr King in the sixties. And he was amazing. You'll be proud to see us all. Got Pushing? Forward Doing Casey marched with his family. Members of Detroit's organization. An NBA coach using his voice. Over in Jacksonville Jaguars personnel were among the demonstrators. North Philly's finest. He walked. Kyle Lowery's we can. Priorities were set. This though. This is just the start. To silence of countless elites spoken loud. Until you see action from an, don't forget by the leaks themselves. We wonder what the real commitment to progress actually is. What capper protests was about from. The beginning can no longer be debated. And it is now crystal clear to all of us that no athlete should just shut up and dribble. Nelson Mandela famously said. Sport has the power to change the world. Since George, Floyd perhaps we have learned that change can come more from our sporting icons using their voice platform in pursuit for justice than any jumper were swing. Or goal or touched them. Stick to sports. Sure let's stick to sports bettering the world in a new way. Let's start hearing the real message now. And most of all, let's not get the words and actions like Hafer. Knicks twisted. When he tried to begin the real conversation. Before US AGO!
"blackballed" Discussed on The Full 48
"A lot of people in the film. Make this Jamal Hill Todd Boyd others make this point that sterling had been around a long time in this league and it was kind of known based on the Housing Discrimination Lawsuit which I would point out was settled out of court but still the the discrimination lawsuit exists Elgin. Baylor's lawsuit that there was a picture that we kind of understood about Donald Sterling was but that he had survived this whole time and people. Associate that with okay. Well it was the David Stern Ariza's Adam silver. I I I think I think there's some conclusions people draw their that. Maybe you're not entirely accurate but I'll get to that in a second. You had adam silver in this which Kudos to getting Adam who was also very honest and very heartfelt in just in the way. He presented how this unfolded from his perspective. The things he felt he had to do. Did you ask Adam at any point? Because obviously he was David Stern's deputy for a couple of decades before assuming the commissionership himself did that. Come up in your conversations with him at all about. Why did it take this tape? Yeah it did but those questions were were out of bounds on so We had to rely on the commentary from like. You mentioned Dr Todd Boy. A professor you have see who is a specialist in this area of research expertise to sort of speak to why this era of Donald Sterling was tolerated for so long and the ways in which Zairean also comments on this particularly the ways in which he ran the league at that time periods. I want to believe that if if if David Stern was still in the commissionership when this tape came out that you would have had the same outcome we'll never know of course but I wanNA believe that I think you'd probably have arguments on both sides of it really good arguments on both sides of it. It'll be interesting to see how history traits the narrative around you know the the David Stern Arab. I think he did a lot of right by his players. A lot of times and yet of course should be rightfully criticized for the ways in which he tried to sort of police the players in the League at an again when you're talking about black players and a white commissioner white ownership and his beholden to the white owners that you get in some really. You know uncountable thorny territory around what? He's actually trying to police about the players whether it's the dress code or Making sure that there's you know. Sort of a palatable emerge on behalf of mostly white audience at the time you know during the height of his era and the explosion of the NBA at the same time he should be commended for bringing the NBA to the heights that he brought it to. During that time period you know making at the global phenomenon that we know in love about the NBA. So it's not really for me to say I don't. I don't know enough about the different. You know nuances of running the League and during that time period so I just relied on those guys and and silver was so willing to be open and honest with us about how he handled this that I felt like again. Let's just shine the light on on what he did? Because you know because David Stern really wasn't a part of this you know so and it can be talked about. In retrospect when it comes to celebrate this was SORTA silver's moment to sort of say. Well this is what I did. Did you make any attempts to get David himself before We did not know so. Yeah and I can't remember if there was a reason why we stopped short of that. I think it was such a A. We were so fortunate to get Adam. Silver and we were so up against the clock time wise that it just consolidated around his interview. Yeah and I don't think David ever did. I mean he obviously was you know he was he was around he. Was You know there was a lot of things? Even more benign issues. He wasn't in addressing after he had stepped down from the commissionership. So I I can't imagine he would have ever agreed to talk about sterling. Anyway I will just say knowing David in the way that I did and also just knowing his track record and also his pre NBA experience and the fact he fought as a lawyer to end housing discrimination in New Jersey and New York. Like there's no doubt in my mind that if David had been in that chair and that tape it come out. He would have done the exact same thing for a bunch of reasons not least of which is to the point of the documentary the player uprising or the player collective voice and how powerful that was anybody in that chair. I think would have had to have moved swiftly and decisively but I also know what David was about and and when people try to reconcile that or say well he allowed sterling. There were a lot of weird things about sterling. There were stories and yes there was the this Housing Discrimination Lawsuit. That was settled. But it's not the same as a smoking gun of audiotape. And it's a distinction. I always try to make only because I think that seeing this as as being so cut and dry Adam championed the players. David protected the owners. I think is far too reductive and I don't think is is is an accurate portrayal who David Wiser. His leadership his values. I think it takes a smoking gun. Unfortunately sometimes and it's hard to get rid of an owner. Look at all the things they had to do. Just to get rid of sterling even with that tape out there in the public record. So that's a great point. That is a really great point. I mean that whole take is is really thoughtful and I think super accurate and you know you have a much deeper understanding of the different eras in Commissionership. And so you know. Thank you for that insight and yes. Let's not forget that like getting rid of an owner. I mean what he did. It's like it's not against the law and in fact what she did was technically against the law. Recording say no. You're not allowed to record someone without letting them know so like it was a real gray area in relationship to legality here it was really more about shame and then really more about you know standing up for what's right and not necessarily what you have the legal authority to do and so you know that's why. I want to believe that that the same conclusion would have been made Regardless of who was in the commissionership just because the table so regis and it was an opportunity to say. I think we have enough here. That we can get rid of this guy and we're not really sure transactional. Yeah that's GonNa work which we cover in a as well as does Ramona in her in her series But they were just a little bit in like unchartered waters around how to do it. You know it hit. It had never happened before they had never just had to remove owner and again to the complications of it that side from the legal part of it. You have to have the other owners on board the or at least a vast majority of them and you have the clip from mark. Cuban who says look too slippery slope. I'm not endorsing anything that Donald Sterling said. It was important but everybody says something behind closed doors. And that's all owners are going to think that way to an extent we. What am I going to be caught saying that was You know hopefully not of that nature but something else perhaps any particular people that you really wanted to get for this that you couldn't or any particular question that you really hope to answer that you could not you know I have great producers And really was put in such a position to succeed because of how great a job. Everybody did in getting everybody. We wanted And so I feel like there were. I mean Blake of course Blake Griffin would have been really great to sit down and talk to on but he just on Ramona's podcast and so he felt like he had he had shared given his side of the story so so he chose to not sit down with us. I would have loved to have her. You know what he had to say about this but aside from that no. I feel like you know we really did. A A my producers such a great job of casting such a wide net and getting such a great cross section of the people who experienced it firsthand the people who can serve contextualising from a basketball perspective on the people who conceptualize it from a race in America cultural perspective. So No I feel like we were able to really get everybody. Of course you could continue interview people about this all day long. I'm continue to get great stories but you know when you're packaging this into sort of ninety minutes and then cutting it into chapters. There's only so much you can do as far as getting interviews. No question and you got. You got great voices there. There's always for any of us. Who are storytellers? There's always another interview. There's always another voice whatever and yet Blake Griffin. Has a pretty big name there. But the guys you've got Chris Paul Matt Barnes D. Andre Jordan Doc. I mean they they told the story very well. Michelle Robertson and Adam Silver Silverware both excellent in this as well there was certainly very quality firsthand accounts their last couple of things. Before I let you go. There's not much basketball in this. But you do have clips of of as they're progressing through the series which they end up losing and they felt like it was one of their best chances really to to break through and they lose to the thunder and Chris. Paul had a terrible couple of minutes there with a couple of turnovers in a decisive in. I think it was in game five and I don't know if he has been on record as things before but he. He really expresses some serious. Just regret about the way that that went regrets. Maybe not the right word but he he he really he talks about how much that. Stung. So that was interesting that that there wasn't basketball going on around this too and while none of this none of them attributed the loss to sterling and at what they were going through. I don't see how from a human perspective. It couldn't have affected them and that it couldn't have seeped in somehow to to the way things played out in that series. That's the way I saw it as well. Especially you know you brought up the CNN Anderson Cooper interview that that Donald Sterling did a which was supposed to be an apology right and instead it becomes this like awful doubling down where he just says even worse things about magic and says he expresses even more uncomfortable darker truths about the way he felt about black people and it was just it was horrific. Will that interview was like a day or two before that game five and the players had been through so much just emotionally and you know the play offs right they require so much of these athletes physically and emotionally and I think when something like this happens over. The course of of a playoff run can't help but think that it didn't affect them in some way shape or form and if you WANNA take like a spiritual level of the fact that Donald Sterling although had been banned was still an owner of the team. Here he is casting his shadow or even casting his curse on the team. Still you know and I of course admire the players saying like Donald Sterling nothing to do with that meltdown in o'casey but I'm with you. There's just no way that just emotionally just with all of the distractions that it didn't affect them in some way shape or form You know so who knows it? I do and I and I really do admire how open and honest Chris. Paul was about sort of owning it and saying like I felt responsible. You know for the awesome fell terrible. Even though there were a couple of weird calls it was fluky. It's one of those weird. Fluky clipper moments yet no question Last thing th the the piece closes with Brown Wesley Morris who are great throughout this but kind of musing on the idea of if the tape doesn't exist as Donald Sterling's still owning the clippers. Today your your gut feeling on that. I think he absolutely would you know. I think it's still own the clippers. I think you know that would still be whispers. And there would still be an eye on him for sure and maybe there would be in a hopefully people waiting for him to to mess up like this in a more public way. You know maybe there would be more publications around some of his previous transgressions that get more attention but I think it would be very unlikely that he'd be gone if it wasn't for that tip coming out and they even joke about it. Ram In west that way on save the NBA..

That's when everybody jalen doesn't this drama from this off season. Make it harder to root for the self made man. I think thank your fantasy football fan still gonna take them just not as high so that's the change that i've seen in antonio brown from a fan dan perspective here's a guy that always went in the top six and sometimes even went number one this year fantasy he going into twenties. That's a real the thing for his value that just lets you know that people don't anticipate the he's not going to be as productive as marcus said he wants was he doesn't have have been there isn't a jew on the other side like he has to find a way to make this thing with derek carr work and that's what makes him worth the drama uh-huh because the guy that they gave a hundred million dollars to to be under center. They have to see if he tagab moving forward just like dallas. There were dak bringing him amari. If cars going to get paid is because antonio brown of course he found a way to put up big numbers.

Don't allow the defense to play physical like the game was meant to be so you know. Gorgeous offers like that. You have to introduce that physicality to own because they don't wanna do that. You make it your mission to run that kind of office out of the n._f._l. Pretty boy football doesn't allow the defense to be physical. Is that an insult or a compliment marcus all but that's where the league is going in certain earns situations the only way you can get column murphy to be successful as in that offense but one of the mortgage joined.

Emma Thompson talks new movie and
"Thomson she's in a movie called late night. It opens this weekend. She also took on a Hollywood titan who has fired for sexual harassment and then quickly got another job and late night. Thompson plays opposite Mindy Kaeling. She also wrote the movie Mindy Kaeling script was one of those strange things immediately, good upon first reading just great. She had a good idea. And she really knew how to bring in for you. That's a. Plus, she said, I wrote it for you. So of course, you haul things, anything God is going to be bad going to be bad, because it's not going away anytime soon being earnest and kind so luckily, I wasn't I was in a blazer with looked back here being incredibly mean most of the time journal, just had our second baby Taylor adorable. She takes to you. Thanks, so there's just a lot of expenses at home right now and I think it's time for a race. I see. This is actually very exciting to be really great because what you're describing is the most clear out example of the classic sexist argument for the advancement of men in the workplace you're asking for raise not because of any work related contribution. You've made but simply because you have a family, and that's why in the nineteen fifties family men were promoted over the women. They worked with never encountered is in such a clean teachable way. How would you describe Catharine Newbury? She is a late night host. She is successful. But maybe the future doesn't look as bright. Well, she's someone who was so driven right from a very early age. We did shoot a little bit of heart doing stand up in London. And when she was very young. And actually, we used my stand up from tally, the I did in nineteen forty five. I remember when forty six can't come on and. I remember so clearly that feeling of whenever I did stand up in my twenty s of being one of certainty. If not the only woman, then one of two amongst great load of men, who were often quite standoffish didn't clearly, expect anything view, so. Spoke to me on every level, we took that piece out because it just didn't help with the story actually in the end. But Mindy understands that, she understands what it's like to be the one who's different not only because of being a woman, but also being a person of color in a fuel the only one you're going to feel different, and that's not comfortable, a lot of the time, it just simply isn't comfortable, and we're not very honest about not. I don't think and she's only about it. She was a diversity higher. She's written about someone who was a diversity. I if that hadn't happened, maybe we wouldn't have this movie. So go, diversity reactively talked to the director of the film Nisha Ghana Tra and she talked about Catherine, as one of those women who came up in the entertainment business. When women were made to believe that other women were their adversaries, not their allies. They were sold this idea that there's only room at the table for one. And if you're here, then you better make sure nobody threatens your position here. And any other women coming up may have been seen as a threat to that position rather than adding to the workforce. And so I think what I love about this movie. Is it sort of breaks up myth? Yeah. I wonder if just women who had, I don't think of men is being enormously generous and warm, too young men, who coming up and might take their position. I think that it might be not only women but just the nature of the power structures that we have created. Do you know what I mean? Like I didn't think of, of blogs coming into writing room and everyone going. Hey, your great. You're a young thrusting blood, a guy like me. I can't wait to give you some extra airtime. I didn't think that happens with mine, iza. And I think that's a problem of power. Right. But I think there's something more to what Nisha sane. And that is that if you're a woman coming up that you are so aware of how limited the opportunities are obsolete that you start to see other women not as your peers. But as your. Arrivals, and that becomes an inch hawk sake. Talk sake. Absolutely. The, the conditions of power do not make it possible, especially for people who find it difficult to get into that position in the first place to be generous will be welcoming will be mentoring or want to help. Movie that you chose not to make. And this is the animated film luck that was at sky dance, which is David Ellison's company animation comedy, paramount and you decided not to make it because guy dance had hired John Lasseter has been fired from Pixar for the way that he treated women. And you wrote a letter that I have described on the air as the Magna Carta of the metoo movement, is one of the most beautiful eloquent, and well argued letters about this whole notion of the way women are treated the way men are forgiven that I found profound, and I hope you would share these two paragraphs with with us right now too. If a man has been touching women inappropriately for decades. Why would a woman want to work for him? If the only reason he's not touching them inappropriately now is that it says in his contract that he must behave professionally. If a man has made women his companies feel undivided and disrespected for decades. Why should the women at his new company think that any respect he shows them is anything other than an act that he's required to perform by his coach his therapist and his employment agreement. The message seems to be I am learning to feel respect for women. So please be patient, while I work on it. It's not easy. What motivated you to write it? What gave you the ability to write it. Very good questions. When I left the production, and then I wrote to Lindsey Durand about it, and in these one of the most brilliant, women, I know, said, Phil, can you talk to some women about this? I'd really be interested to know what's going on. And in fact, that letter is the work of many voices is not just my voice because those questions, very much came from those women. So the dots what's wonderful about it is that it is a collective voice, and I sent it to sky downs and didn't receive a reply, and because I showed it was quite a lot of people because of the issue, being very pressing, a lot of just as you go to publish it, and that was quite a big decision because it's just a public, but the. Vision turned out to be the right one because. Those with the questions that needed to be oft and to this date of not been onset in any way. I've had no response public or personal back from sky don's an dots very disappointing. Because they only way we're going to get anywhere with this own going issue is by talking to each other. It's not just a public thing to do its thing that potentially, and this is what has happened over the last couple of decades, that has kept women silent is they fear that they will be punished that they will be blackballed. They won't get parts that people will rise. They're absolutely really. Why were you able to I'm sixty on thought too old not to woke my own talk time is very much marching on.

We got to talk to people before during, and after film shoots the thing, the clever thing about anybody who's going to bully. Is that they'll do it, not in front of someone who's going to say you can't do that? They'll do it in secret or in quiet or in private. And it's very difficult, for instance, for someone who's a runner, and who can be replaced in five minutes to say anything, bad about someone who will cost a lot of money to replace an all of these things.

After walking out of the place inside the club owner was fuming and he played the Instagram video on the club's big screen. Pete offer to do the show for free for anyone in the in the crowd, but they were pissed he was like come outside. I guess I'll be standing in the parking lot. Oh for crying out loud. You hear someone yell f you Pete? According to club goers, Vinnie did mention Kate and Arianna only because he was asking the crowd not to heckle Pete about his girlfriend's. Then he says those are the ground rules Pete wanted. They. Agreed. Anyone who did shout out anything like that would be removed from the club? It seems that.

The true story of an 'undercover' horse who won races for the FBI
"Recently spotlighted on the thoroughbred racing commentary website the episode happened in nineteen eighty nine at finger lakes. Upstate New York. The FBI had gotten a tip that the drugging of horses and fixing of races were going on at finger lakes naturally. The bureau wasn't going to just go in there and announced that they were investigating the matter. So they had to go undercover. Now, we all know that race tracks are full of Damon Runyon ask characters, and it wouldn't be that hard for an FBI operative to become one of those characters. There was just one problem in order to have credibility. The agent had to have a reason to be there, basically. He had to have a horse and the horse had to have a trainer. The horse was a four year old filly named Zack regard Z A C H R E G A R D all one word and once she was transferred from Kentucky up to finger lakes. Her trainer was Robert field house, and we are pleased to have Mr. field house with us here on the gate to pick up the story. So let's start where you enter the picture tell us about how. And by whom you were approached to train this Philly. Someone called me and asked me if I had a an empty stall, I could ocean. And I just happened that have one I said, gee, I've got stores where we got this horse coming in. Would you be interested in training GIO? I guess so so it kinda started that way. And so I got the horse and a couple of days later, I met the the owner supposedly owner, and we had a good talk the Lima my rates were and this out the other thing and filled me in a little bit on the horse. And then we went from there. Now, normally when you have a new client, I presume, you wanna get to know that person. What were you told about the connections? Yeah. He I wasn't told anything actually he represented himself. And I told him, you know, you have to get the set of colors, and you have to get your license usage it on no problem. He says I grew up to to the secretary's office in put in for that stuff. Now says all have colors or veggies. So we can run the horse, and I'll give my license and all so you'd be all sick. And you didn't really ask about who. I what he did very came from or anything. He told me says, I he says, I'm from mobile Alabama. And he says I have a business with I think it was like spare airplane parts he says I have airplane parts that I sell believe went by the name of 'em. Grace is real name ended up being Mike glass. My okay, he did go Mike grace is what he was introduced to me as what did, you know about the horse? Nothing commend. She looks aound. I checked over. She didn't have anything wrong with it. Did I could see? So I just started galloping and checking her out to find out what you know, what class I'd have to racial in that you told me off air that use. Served for eight years in the air force during the bay of pigs. So tell us what you did in the air force. I was a hydraulic mechanic mainly, and I got in the outfits with the people that were gonna run into bay of pigs thing, and I was still hired just as a mechanic, I drive person. But we did go to bottom out to work on the beach sixes and things like that. It was an outfit that was fifty sixty people while you were in a for probably four years set everything up, and then of course, after the bay pigs, and so you served your country for eight years. So what would you have thought had the FBI actually told you what it was doing on behalf of the government? Well, of course, I didn't know. And I think that's the way they wanted it. But. If they would have come up and ask to me. And I don't know what I what I would say at the time. How could that be? Well, it just something, you know, it's a strange thing to ask me, maybe in the first place. If I if I was doing something like that and other people at the racetrack knew about it. I'd kind of be blackballed real quick. You know, they watch this guy. He's working for the FBI. You know, that's the. That's not a very good deal. We're talking here on the gate with retired trainer. Robert field. House who trained filly named Zack regard up at finger lakes downs in the late eighties sack. Regard was being used to lure potential race fixers. So they would have to deal with the Phillies
