"Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell and Jerry West and Oscar Robertson. These are the people that I that I grew up watching and then pinch yourself. You're I am they know me by name I'm interviewing them. That that has a different effect, think of it this way. If you. If you were a kid tumble of our age. Okay and let's say you're a Yankee Fan for the sake of argument. You meet Mickey Mantle, and the next day you meet Derek. JETER? Derek jeter is wonderful. Classy. Great. First Level Hall of Famer not going to have the same effect. And why de when you were ten of the great benefits of working in the White House is I got to have lunch with Bill Russell got to meet Sandy. Ernie banks came by and we had a great discussion about why? No one was in Willie mays his class which I thought was you know what I mean? Yeah you're right. You're totally right you also as time went on, you know must have must as as you've been here. You you were you used your platform. You're you said what you thought at times you probably made the network uncomfortable and talk a little bit about that what you know. A couple of things here and I appreciate having the time to be a little bit more expansive. Contrary to what gets out there and you know in a social media world certain ideas get out there on the repeated often enough and even people who think they're being fair-minded accept them as true. So this notion that. Cost? US I really liked costas but then everything became political with him. Ninety nine percent of what I did not just overall in my career. But in the last ten years was about the game or about the event and I never talked about these issues unless it was parenthetically never talked about these issues during the game or during the of that, but I was most often the host of the football coverage of the Olympic coverage. So there were little windows in between when stuff wasn't directly going on I would never do any of this stuff when Michael was about to jump in the pool or or when Derek Jeeter was coming to the plate now. But inevitably, a certain issues intersect with sports on anyone is even. Even vaguely aware of the history of it knows that that's true and when that happens somebody has to address it, and that somebody should be the host not the person who's calling the action should be the host and it should be done judiciously and I think that's what I did over the years and I think also people got confused. If I'm asked to be on CNN. And talk about some of these issues that's not during the game. I'm sitting there at nine o'clock in the morning with Allison Cammarata John, Berman in home. It's not the same thing but I did feel that there were times when these these issues intersected it's become obvious this past year but there's always there always been occasions when it should be addressed, it's impossible to have an Olympics without some political overtones having an Olympics in Sochi and not talk about louder Mir. Putin and not talk about the strong suspicions that the Russians were cheating with drugs how can you have an Olympics in China and not talk about China's rights abuses and the fact that there's no free press in China? How can the Israeli delegation come in London on the fortieth anniversary of the? Munich. Tragedy. The Israeli athletes and coaches were slain and the O refuses to acknowledge it in any formal way. Somebody's gotta say that. So when the Israeli delegation comes in instead of the boilerplate, here's the flagbearer and here's somebody who might be able to win. Win a metal in whatever event I mentioned that. But not during the event? No no I'm a I I understand the context and listen I. Think you did a great service by raising those points because you know sports is not an island. And there are real life issues you raised on. Sunday night football after a a player was involved in an emergency suicide about the availability of guns. Yeah. You Know David that's one that if I could have mulligan on it I, wish I could have it back. What I said and what I intended has been misrepresented there are people out there who think that I if I could I revoked the Second Amendment, take their guns away for the record. Now, if you need to use a gun to protect your home and family, that's you're right and in many situations, it might be the right thing to do my point was about a gun culture in Sports, which definitely exists and prior. To that time sports illustrated ESPN and the USA Today had all done pieces about a gun culture in sports, and if you were to google athletes and guns, you'd find a long list of tragedies criminality and folly associated with athletes and guns, and you'd be hard pressed to come up with one instance were a prominent athlete used a gun to turn a dangerous situation around for the better were you said to yourself goodness he? Had A gun could it happen in theory of course, has happened in society? Yes and that's a good thing. But that was the point I was trying to make and I did not do it as well as I would like to think I usually do I took it for granted that the audience would understand my point and I didn't fully appreciate how volatile the the issue was in retrospect I wish that I had said. Whenever tragedy strikes in sports. We hear the hollow cliche will out really puts it all in perspective but that perspective disappear in about five minutes. If we're really searching for some perspective here, then we ought to take this is an opportunity to talk about domestic violence to talk about the effects of football yeah, WanNa stop right there because you also very strikingly spoke out about the impact of football on the brains of the athletes. who participate and basically walked away from the game. And that was a I mean, that was a I think almost a historic event because you were so associated with Sunday, night football, and yeah, and so so talk about that I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable.

"Bob Costas invited me to do a game with him that involved by pirates one night chapters devoted to that the Easter Eve game in which the Islanders and the Washington Capitals went four overtimes, and my partner, Bill Clement took his Tie off and wrapped it around his head and did imitations of John Wayne, and we've filled of an intermission on ESPN, and it became controversial. One of the Hierarchy at ESPN didn't particularly like it, but other people did. There's a chapter devoted to how the players got through three periods and four overtimes. Aah! And you know lots of other things kind of like that. And The last chapter is called the Last Elevator ride, and when it was written, I had no idea that at last elevator ride with be in March, 11th at United Center following a game with Santo's A in Chicago and that Eddie Old check would be writing with me and driving me back to the Drake Hotel afterwards. That that would be the last time that we would be side by side working together. But who would have conceived of what the months the seven months sense would have been like? None of us would have.

Several times been charity things together and I think he's a magnificent actor. It's a wonder to me that he hasn't received nominations for best supporting actor because he's had so many wonderful turns in so many memorable movies but the Babe Ruth Story was not one of them. No and it really it really hurt John because he's he's an honest to God really knowledgeable baseball fan and he wanted to do justice to it and it just didn't work. It just did not work and that was even more ridiculous in some respects than the William Bendix version of frank and I were talking about this the other day there's one there's one scene where to show just how truly was the sultan of Swat he hit a pop up so hot. He was able around the basis of hauling back to home. Berle said to the.

Bob which I was telling you about we talked we'll talk for a minute about these bad bad bio plans and Gilbert's particular bugaboo is the bad. What would you call it Gilbert the bad bio-pic. Seem Oh. They're always scenes. Any bio pic where my favorite my all time favorite is one about. Bobby Darin. Beyond the sea and John, Goodman is Bobby Darren's manager and and Bobby Darrin. Goes Well Kevin. Spacey as Barbie. I might careers, nothing and John. Has. To stand there and go are you kidding bobby? You've won seven Emmys five. Academy. Award. Your. Dodge. Triple Platinum, which is never been done before and. A whole listing of every fact of Bobby Darren's career. I never was a soap opera fan but my mom when I was a kid, my mom would watch soap operas and even then and like eleven or twelve I figured out what they had to do. They had to catch people up. In case, they had missed a few episodes. So so here it'd be some some woman sitting across from the male lead lead say, and she said, well, you remember how difficult last year was for me and then he'd say, yes, you're daughter left home and you haven't been able to find her new fell and had him Nesia for six months so You missed that portion of your life, and then your husband left you and you took up with the bartender but that didn't work out very well. So yes, of course I recall how difficult one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, three was for you. But here we are now in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, four, and you started a new job your general. Hospital? It's not the normal kind of dialogue that people engage over lunch I. Love when I two characters sit down and one says to the other. Okay. You're Bob Lane and you're a doctor. Lost Your job as a doctor because you're up your alcohol. Now me. I'm a bank robber and. supported. There's some pretty bad exposition like that in the Babe Ruth Story, which I watched again. Nice to see. Fred. Mertz by the way turning up in the babe. Ruth Story. Fred Merge William Frawley played the first manager be. Baltimore right there on the trade. That's right. Yeah. That's right and has aligned when he's when the. Pumpkin him and they tell him to put his arm in the in the the little luggage carrier on the right on the train and he says, don't you realize you're pitching a game against the world champion Connie Mack's Philadelphia as later to. Ask like seventy words. You're among the dog rescue seen Oh. Yeah. That's one of the movies that are so bad. Okay. It's so bad. Yes entertaining in just because of how atrocious it is will William Bendix the suited whether Babe Ruth really called shot at Wrigley Field in the world series in one, thousand, nine, thirty, two. You know it's kind of depends on your perspective. Some of the last remaining survivors had different ideas about it, and then some grainy old film showed up and it made it look like he was sort of motioning out toward the pitcher and then motioning toward the cubs dugout but not emphatically pointing out into the distance center field. But if you watch William, Bendix step out of the batter's box and he pointed zippy was pointing toward the Moon, not just sort of feel bleachers and then of course, he he homers out in that direction but my favorite scene actually the early scene links to the later one. He hits a line drive during batting practice and who knows why. But there's a little dog on the field. Ball the ball strikes new dawn. Okay and naturally the babe being the open heart thumb that he was runs to the dawn's aid scoops up the dog forgets about the game and sprints to the nearest hospital in full uniform to try and save the dogs light. So he walks in the doctor says, Babe will do the best. We can. They patched the dog up and the dog survived now fast forward fifteen years or whatever it is. Nine.

"Pitch it and close the doors. I doing it a show like this. Big Star. Now now. This. Now, you're talking about the last time you spoke to somebody maybe. I. Don't know four or five months before his death. I'm in a restaurant in Beverly Hills. Restaurant where I had had dinner with Don and his and his wife Barbara who were very good friends with Allen and Linda Michael's. So anyway on this particular occasion, I'm with my wife Jill and another couple and we're to the front of the restaurant and we must have gotten there well after rickles and his party had arrived. So he's at the back of the restaurant, the last kind of booth or alcove before you go down a long hallway toward the restrooms and his back is to the rest of the room. So I get up to go to the men's room, and as I'm walking toward the corridor I, see the unmistakable figure of rickles you don't have to see his face, just the shape body, his head. From behind right. So so I come up behind him and I tap is shoulder I don't remember he's eighty nine years old at this point whenever I tap on the shoulder he turns and in a split second has no idea in there in a split second he goes I say this as a friend people are getting tired of you.

Back to school remember he's he's sitting in a hot tub, right? He's like A. Seventy year. Old Guy who's come. Out. In the hotel and these these three coeds go walking by and he says, Hey, honey, what's your major? She says poetry goes poetry well, the JOPPA here and helping out with by longfellow. That's ridiculous. It's quite resorting. Back to school is is coming out and NBC has the January Nineteen eighty-six Super Bowl between the berries, the Patriots so I'm hoping the soup. and. The ideas that dangerfield will periodically appear during the pre-game show and the idea is he can't get any respect. He can't get a ticket to the game. He's in a fleabag hotel outside New Orleans and he's he's soaking his feet in a tub of ice because he's been tracing up and down Bourbon street trying to score tickets for the game and his friend Bob won't help them out. But each time you'll mention something you know. Tough High School Bob on our team. We after we sacked quarterback, we went after a spam. kind of trying to attack. Iraq. Football. I had this guy. You know he was a guy who specialized in playing old decrepit guy. He was on Letterman allot a really skinny guy couldn't couldn't have been Carl Oldie Olsen because I. Sounds. Sounds right that sounds okay. So he played in he played the Bellman. He kept coming in with fresh cold water to pour into this bucket is but that dangerfield was soaking speeded and each time he would give the guy a tip. So he goes. A little something for yourself. Walks out that come next time. Some something for your wife and he walks up third time something for your kids and he starts to leave and all these earns back because I don't have any kids interested religious backgrounds ponder but huge WANNA goes. Get yourself some kids itself had. So now. So now dangerfield and I become sort of friendly through this and on Hbo I, Guess We must have been around two thousand five was whatever year Rodney passed away. And this turned out to be his last television appearance and we had a segment called nine and ninety where a guest unknown to me would come out from behind a curtain and I would have to hopefully recognize him or her, and then he or she would come with nine questions. I would have to answer in ninety seconds and it was usually preceded by some sort of banter between me and the guest. So I have no idea it's going to be dangerous. Rodney comes slowly shuffling out and the crew goes nuts seeing Rodney dangerfield and well, they're hooping and hollering he says to me under his breath. Asked me if I've been to the beach and I'm thinking well, that should be my first question is like an eighty five year old guy who's white as a ghost I'm sure he's finance. Fire. So. So I say. Rodney. It's summertime committed to the beach. He Goes Oh. Yeah. Bob I like to hang around a nude beach and then a crew goes nuts again every time he says something it punctuated by them. Cracking up the hang around a nude beach. Oh. He goes yeah. You're on the day a guy came up to me. He weighed a hundred pounds I go skinny guy. Yeah he goes. Yeah. A hundred pounds and that was in his testicles and now the the crew's going nuts up. That's That's rather interesting. He says, yeah, he came to me Sir I'm depressed I said GonNa depress you nuts. So. Far, as I know, that was the last joke that Rodney. Dangerfield. Ever told on the air and like a lot of great comics a lot of great comics it isn't remotely as funny unless it's told by Rodney. It's it's like you roasting George Tocchet. It isn't just a setting that you can get away with it at a at a friars rose like that. It's material that only works for Gilbert Godfrey, but it works to attend on a ten scale for Gilbert Godfrey. Same thing with Rodney Dangerfield, he had created this persona. He created this character if you or I just sat down next Johnny Carson and rattled off these jokes not only would it not be good? It would be awful. Would bombing never by? Those Perfect those Carson appearances were so great because as Gilbert says, you got two sets, you got the set when he came. And the set in the chair. And I. Always. Sit in a chair was even funnier even better. All Johnny say how you been, right. One, the transition was. I'm all right now my last week Owens and Ben last week and shape all in this thing was. Hey Johnny gotTa, Gordon's Dr. You, know my doctor, Johnny boombats. Avenue. I mean just just wiki three cases of Indian his office I mean he's on right now but. I think one of my favorite Vinnie boombox jokes was doc I got yellow teeth. What should I do over.
Washington NFL team says it will retire Redskins name, logo
"90 years. Washington D. C is pro football team is retiring the controversial Redskins mascot comas, Bill Swartz remind us of several schools in our state that changed racially offensive sports nicknames. Fight song and logo filled with stereotypes and insensitive words. Washington football team owner Dan Snyder announced the Redskins mascot is being dropped. He and coach Ron Rivera will find an appropriate nickname and logo going forward. Seattle's Nate Burlison played for the Seahawks and is a host on the NFL network. Just about time about time. There's been a lot of pressure on this organization, not just from the players, the fans but also now we know the sponsors, so This is a sport situation. It's a business situation, but more importantly, it's a humanity situation. So I'm glad that they decided to make the change Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Costas, not a fan of name changes, just a suit political correctness, But the Redskins had to go get yourself a dictionary. By definition. Redskins is an insult sports teams with Native American references date back to the 19 twenties in our state, the state normal school in Jeannie called its teams the savages until 1973 when now Eastern Washington University switched to the Eagles.

Now called the Red Hawks after a push from the Snoqualmie tribe is Aqua High School in 2003 moved from Indians two Eagles While many people have tried Renton High School remains the Indians curator Sarah Sampson, with rentals History Museum says the mascot was originally a tribute to a Duwamish tribal member and an outstanding student athlete Henry Moses. It was quite rare to see a native American playing on a team with all of the white boys. It was very rare, and they obviously did not react well. Toe losing, and so they started calling them the Indians. Henry's teammates took on the name and said, Yeah, where the Indians Moses widow, Christina, wrote a letter to the rent in schools, explaining the source of pride Indians still has for her family and the tribe.

"I like rob Manfred very much personally. I respect his intelligence and his intentions. But there have been some things over the last year I don't know that people's reaction to his punishments regarding the Astros were completely fair I think he was limited by circumstances and so a lot of the grief that he caught I thought was disproportionate, but there is that in the minds of many, and now there's this and no matter how you apportion the blame. The guy at the top always gets more of it. He's the Commissioner of Baseball. Baseball's in a bad way. if they can't salvage something out of this, not just in twenty twenty, but all the things we talked about going forward and twenty one and twenty two, then it's going to hurt his legacy, but the story is yet to be fully told, so. We still got a chance to turn that ship around. Dacoven nineteen and everything that's transpiring. How confident are you? That will even have sports, not fully confident. The NBA and the NHL had the best shot because they only have to complete. Condensed period of time, and in one place complete what they started, but even then that's not assured as you see that there's a little bit of wobbling regarding the NBA This past couple of days we find out that eight or nine phillies, five players and others associated, and we're talking about the whole Ross or not twenty five or twenty six people with. They've got more people than that. gathered at the moment or together eight or nine have tested positive, so we know that even if a given sport does everything right there up against the set of medical circumstances. Circumstances are unpredictable and perhaps uncontrollable so I think that basketball and hockey have the best shot at it, although it's not guaranteed, but football and baseball have to play some semblance of a regular season before they get to the payoff of their postseason, and there's no guarantee they can ever get that far. It's a tightrope walk and knows if you get from one side of the ravine to the other. Bob Costas for this year by there was talk about at least initially with Major League baseball about creating a bubble environment much like the NBA Mls Nhl, but clearly that wasn't going to fly with the players. How would you have felt if they were going to play in that type of environment? Would you feel better? Well, I think fans in general would accept almost anything as a one off under these circumstances when you start with not having fans already you're into a unique situation so altering the playoff format playing the world series at a neutral site, isolating and only a few places, but remember those laces initially were Florida and Arizona. Then they had a Texas those are three states that are surging right now in terms of the corona virus I think that people would have accepted. And the of those circumstances as fans. But going back to what I said a moment ago. Baseball and football have to get in a regular season. Even if it's a shortened regular season. That's a whole lot different asking people to isolate that way. There's a whole lot different than asking. NHL Players or NBA players isolate in a nice enough location, Orlando or Vegas for for a sport that. Plays. Indoors? With no fans Not Dependent upon weather in any way, and for a relatively short period of time. A lot of players are uncomfortable with even that but to do it over a long period of time. I don't think the public would bind it, 'cause. It's just a television product off for the time being, but the players and I think that would be a big problem. Bob Costas legendary broadcaster. Of course you can check out his work at MLB, Network Bob, an absolute pleasure and an honor. Thank you so much for taking the time. Stay healthy. Stay safe and thanks again.

"Meant the Olympics and Sunday night football I had ambivalent feelings about football overall for quite some time but I was able to rationalize doing it because they gave me some places where at least I could get some of my misgivings and some of what I thought were the important points involved on the record and I hope that that had some value It always struck me as odd when people said. Yeah yeah he made a bunch of good points about the NFL and he was the only one that was doing that but if he really felt that strongly then he should have just quit. Well those are the same people by the way or like the same people who a generation ago would say. Hey except for Howard cosell Nobody ever in network television ever criticizes anything about Sports. They're all a bunch of housemen so that indicates that they wanted somebody to take an independent view then somebody did take an independent view and their take was. Well have really felt that way. Why did you quit? I could have said the same things on. Hbo OR ON CNN. Or whatever. And I did when I had my opportunities but the fact that I said these things on network television in front of the largest possible audience gave them a greater impact and influence. Which is why I felt comfortable doing it at least for a while but now circling back to answering your question. I I was well aware even always still had the energy and the ability to do it. I was well aware that when I started out many of the players on all of the executives. All the coaches all the managers all the the people in in in television. They were all older than me and then I was practically the word. Irreverent was practically attached to my name irreverent newcomer Bob Costas Fresh fresh approach and then all of a sudden it's snuck up on me and then I was the venerable Bob Costas You know I I accept it. It was it was a better place for B. Two B. At Hbo And some of the other things that I have done and will do again. That turned out to be a better place for me over the last decade or so Then NBC but that's not solely Richard because of age Allah Michaels is a decade older than I am roughly still the gold standard. Mike Emmerick is in his early Seventies. Fantastic on these hockey games. What's the difference? They are attached to something that fits who they are fits their interests and their abilities. It's the personification of who they are. No fault of their own. Nbc No longer had the things that personified my interests and whatever. My peculiar abilities may be if you go back to the eighties. Nineties early two thousands the combination of things that I did both in and out of sports and on HBO and on NBC Taken Together. That was a pretty good A pretty good indication of where I was coming from as both a broadcast on a person and then that became less so because the circumstances didn't align as they once did and that's why I chose to reshape my career over the last over the last several years and and not have to not have to worry about About the number the ages a number.

"Podcast. All right as I said at the top Bob. Costas is not really much of an introduction for the listeners. Here is one of the most iconic voices in the history of sports broadcasting. I mentioned some of Some of his long resume at the top of this podcast currently calling games for the MLB network hosts specials for that network as well. He is here obsessively on behalf of the Concussion Legacy Foundation. We'll get into some other stuff with Bob as well. But he has been instrumental in launching and developing What is a sort of outreach? I would call it outreach. From media which is to Is the first and only concussion. Reporting Training designed specifically for sports media professionals in Layman's terms. It's to help media people. Learn how to be more accurate about concussion reporting. And I'm pleased to be joined by. Bob Costas Bob. Welcome to the sports media podcast. Thanks Richard happy to renew acquaintances Baba. Let's start off here before we get into Before we get into anything else and that's just What is your experience been like with Cova Nineteen? And how is your health at the moment? How's your family's health? Well quote a friend of mine who said to me at the very outset of this. You know we're fortunate. We just have to adjust other people have to figure out how to survive so luckily me and my family were in the former category or all safe healthy. And I've tried to do what many many people have done. contribute what I can to any sort of covert nineteen Related causes Auction things you can do a whole lot these days. I've discovered I'm a notorious technophobe but I know how to zoom. I know how to facetime. So I've been able to go on the air and various places that way or to make announcements that are used as part of auctions where people in sports of auctioned off experiences to help raise money and Some of these Have really been extraordinarily successful. The all in challenge that. Lon Rosen of an executive with the dodgers helped the launch is into the tens of billions of dollars and probably heading over one hundred million before all of a sudden done. So I've been happy to be involved in in some of those things and I think that's much different than My colleagues around the Sports World. We all try to do what we can with our physical limitations. You can't go much of anywhere but luckily the technology now makes it possible still way in but here. You're you're the health of you and your family is is good. Let's let me just sort of ask him like a sort of a macro question. How would you define your relationship with the concussion? Legacy Foundation quote. I was always interested in the issue. The New York Times going back a decade or so did a whole series of stories articles ongoing investigative pieces about Concussion crisis in football specifically but it wasn't limited to football I became interested in the subject. I went up to Boston and met with doctor. Ann Mckee and Dr Robert Cantu and Personal Wenski former college football player and former professional wrestler. Who himself has gone on to earn a PhD Christner? Wenski started the legacy foundation and now in cooperation with Dr Robert CANTU. They put together an educational program which is just one of the things that the concussion legacy foundation does. So I've learned more about the issue through my association with them and I can't take any credit for putting this curriculum together but I can speak to people like you and help to make people within the broadcasting and journalism community from Aware of it so that they can Tap into it if they wished it. But one of the things about What is doing is. It's pretty user friendly right for a media person or even someone who just wants to learn more about the accurate terminology to use when you're sort of publicly disseminating this. It's a it's a fairly. It's fairly user. Friendly course correct to sort of. Go through and get certified. Yeah and hundreds of broadcasters specifically have gotten certified including some bold face name like Andrea Kremer and Sean McDonough and Bob Lee Lesley Visser. We've come a long way from the days not all that long ago when ESPN actually ran a regular weekly feature called he got jacked up and one former players professional broadcasters total like Frat boys over the kinds of hits that we now know Lead to terrible consequences The terminology used the awareness throughout the media is much better than it was But if you WANNA make sure that you've got all the I's dotted T.'s. Crossed to get the certification. You can do it online as you were indicating Richard going to concussion foundation dot org slash certify concussion foundation dot org slash certify and and this is really impressive. Only in the space of a few years. the workshops which they teach have become part of the curriculum at prestigious universities that have very strong reputations in journalism my Alma Mater Syracuse Northwestern University of Missouri Arizona State and. Why You Boston College? The list goes on and so When the world turns to normal and people are back on campus or If do we get remotely as has become more and more the case? If you're interested in one of those workshops if you're an educator is interested in one of the workshops then it's concussion foundation dot Org Slash Workshop Concussion Foundation Dacian Dot Org slash workshop. Bob Do you think there should be a requirement at networks that air any sport that potential and I guess maybe it's every sport but the sports where concussions are really sort of a regular part of those sports? Yeah I think it's about as important as knowing the rules of the sport and knowing the wise and wear for of anything you might have to cover and comment on in a responsible and knowledgeable way It's not something you need to within the context of a game broadcast harp upon or deliver lectures or opinion pieces about but but you ought to buy now eliminate the notion all he really got his bell wrong or that was just a Stinger. That's that's out of bounds. Now there are better more informed ways to refer to these circumstances and you need to be familiar to with whatever the League or whatever the college conference or that universities policy is for dealing with With injuries that involve head trauma. And I I find I I. I don't have a comprehensive view of this. You can't watch listen to every broadcast but in watching NFL Games. I find that the are generally pretty much up to speed when it comes to what the concussion protocol are around the NFL and naturally because of the NFL's wide visibility and popularity and because among the team sports it is the The sport where the risk of head trauma and and its consequences is greatest. That doesn't mean that it doesn't exist in other sports. For example baseball in recent years has put in a special concussion injury list so that if if someone goes through a concussion protocol and it appears that he should not go back into action they can go on the concussion injured list for as little as seven days but longer than that and when I say as little as seven days that may sound like they're soft peddling it but the idea is to discourage people from hiding and injury. Catcher gets a number of foul tips back into his mask. He's having some symptoms. Maybe doesn't want to lose his spot in the lineup. We know that that's something that has long range negative consequences so baseball has its own concussion. Protocol if it turns out that these symptoms are mild. If it turns out that under Doctor Supervision the player can return then. He's on a shorter absence than being placed on the ten day or fifteen day injured list which covers all other types of injuries. The idea is to make sure that the players and the medical staff are as well informed and aware as possible and that the normal competitive instincts which so often have led athletes with a warrior mentality to minimize what they're experiencing it's one thing to minimize an ankle sprain. It's another thing to minimize head trauma and I think moving in the right direction. We all the way there yet. Probably not but we're a whole lot better off than we were just a few years ago but very few people. I think who could provide insights answering this question? Are there limits to how far rightsholder broadcaster can go when it comes to discussing head trauma to his or her audience if if they're a pre game show host or a game announcer for the National? Football League. I think the Glib answer here is not quite as far as Bob. Costas went but but I was. I was at a point where the issue and acknowledging it was more important to me Perhaps than what the consequences might have been career wise But maybe I was in a different category. I think that if you're talking about a game broadcast all you need to do is be well informed and sensitive to the issue you don't need to editorialize within a game And if the networks says appears to be the case don't want any of that in the pre game and halftime Unless it's a direct factual report but somebody has quit because of repeated concussions. That's just a factual news report. They clearly don't want too much editorializing around it because it reminds people of the darker side of the most popular and profitable property that the networks have But there are other places. There are places apart from the Games imprint programs. Hbo's Real Sports ESPN Does a wide variety of things but it includes substantial amount of journalism which they do very well when they turn their attention to it. So I think that there there are lots of places apart from the games themselves where this tent where this issue can get the attention. It deserves within the Games. The broadcasters and producers just have to be aware of what the science is what the best present understanding is. What the League's Concussion. Protocols are so that they cover these situations when they happen right in front of them they cover them accurately and intelligently but you You mentioned the word editorializing Leads to a question. I wanted to ask you you You did a lot of essays at halftime for Sunday night. Football TO BE PART OF THAT BROADCAST THERE. Obviously a couple of them that Went to a place where you received a ton of criticism accusations of over politicizing issue etc etc etc. My thought is that heading forward in both the short term and perhaps long-term no one is going to be in that kind of position again on a national football league broadcast where they offer those kind of essays as the person who did this. I wanted to get your perspective on that. That kind of take well. It's probably true. First of all the person would have to have the ability and the inclination to do it and be at a certain stage of their career. You know I really think that. Nbc didn't quite know what to do with me toward the end They hadn't had baseball Since two thousand they hadn't had the NBA since two thousand to the Olympics came up only once every couple of years and after I'd done a dozen of them. I made it clear a few years before I did my final Olympics that that would be the end but real in twenty sixteen would be the end for me But I guess they sort of wanted to keep my name on the.

What's what they want what they can't have therefore Trevor Lawrence Man. He's unbelievable Joe. Borough just gave you the greatest season. A quarterback has ever given to a team in college football history much better than anything Trevor Lawrence on. We're just not quite sure how what the ceiling is for. Trevor Lawrence Lawrence is only lost one game entire career. He's not lacking for any success. Is He a great quarterback? Oh yeah great by college standards. Yes okay I mean only lost one game in two years. I've gotta prove something I know. He's at the NFL. Play I mean Greg. Mcelroy probably didn't lose too much at Alabama drew. I mean boroughs got pros all over around him too although he did. Elevate that team a lot. I mean to a two years ago was the hot thing after the title game for the dolphins were tanking for two so I think a lot of times. We get these quarterbacks and it's new and you go oh my gosh. He checks all the boxes there. He's six six. He looks like a quarter value. Strong arm feels like he's Andrew Luck though the one exception that goes wire-to-wire Trevor. Lawrence is the the new Andrew gets compared to like a lot. He's been since ninth grade. He's been the wonder I think but maybe not I mean I always think that UNOM always wrong. I thought Matt Barkley was a top ten pick. I think so did met Sam. Darnold two or three but people are still waiting for that greatness. I know new kissing disease out. You Know Yeah Paulie Trevor. Lawrence doesn't have that rhyme like suck for lock you know tank for to a that you need a rhyme on his name. Trevor Lawrence too wordy I would say todd. What rhymes with trevor? But it won't rhyme with Trevor Sever for trevor like several years. Your attempts to win games but if it's not a rhyme thing but it's just losing for Lawrence it's alliteration right yes McCullough.

Does it mean anything to these guys? Because he's like always terrible passer rating. Well look at Daniel Jones. Yeah Mitchell trubisky.

He didn't play well on a average team. Mitchell trubisky played okay on average team. I still like what I see. I still like when I go all that guy. That Guy Teddy. Bridgewater doubts about him.

Somebody also liked the fact that we suggested fritzy suggested flipping bowling pins that were on fire today and we're all for that. We wanted to get bowling. Pins and set them on fire and let. Fritzy juggle those. I don't know how to use a lighter system that is true. That was an amazing piece of video. Not the most of all the different things. You've seen on county not be able to do you you. You can't do any household chores like if you were left alone. You know when you can't leave a child at home for any extended one of those braces like. I'm on and can't get up kind of like a pet. You can't leave the pet there for too long like that. Your wife must say. Hey Todd I'm going to be back in four hours or you're going to be okay. No candidates like Dan open one of those things with the ring where you can just pull it open. But but pretty couldn't use a lighter. You eventually got it but I only was able to hold it for like a half. It took you over a minute to figure out how to use a light hours looking at it like it was some kind of NASA but the fact he used a broom like it was shuffleboard. I Did. I can't wait to describe. How pathetic wasn't a bit that you didn't know how to use a Brune? I wasn't looking for laughs and I was looking for pity. I guess I was genuinely and then we were cutting down the nets when we left the scissor by no. No no no we were cutting down the nets and FRITZY got up there. Because I wanted all of us to cut down the nets symbolic that. We're leaving the old man cave. Todd you couldn't do it. You couldn't actually cut down. The Nets took a very long time. With a righty says instead of taking the righty scissors and putting it in his right hand he kept it in his left handed. Dexter stuck with the left hand but ultimately that was very poor. Everybody did it like a matter of like a second and a half and it seemed like it was several minutes before I can even make a dent in the netting nevermind actually cutting a piece off. It was bad it was it was very bad. Yes it was sad as it wasn't bad it was just sad. It was it was it was. It was very unfortunate. I have such a limited or showing that now we're fritzy's up there and he then he claimed whether they're Right handed scissors. That's my hand. I could do this. I can close the gap by thanks for reasons. But there's no excuse for that poor netted cutting performance but there must be reason why they make left. And you didn't know how to do. The tongs either did not like Tatyana unlock. It didn't realize they will lock on Tom. You some kind of thing you had to turn to actually remove some kind of band around it to to be able to freely open and closed. You know. We're showing that now to pick it up and go at my own length of space that I need to talk to professor. This is definitely its own. Tv show just asking todd to do like hey. Can you like this lighter and then just film it? Yeah a member when he was cutting police birthday cake. And it's like D D. I don't do it yourself can't do yourself. Is there anything I can do on his own? Now we're showing him cutting the cake so so he he leaves it in the box and he's going to try to cut it but he can't get the knife all the way down hawks in the box.

That game if you WanNa do it and you want to do a live reality TV show L.. Where the manager in the American League and the one in the national gets to pick WHO THEY WANNA play or whatever it is? I'm fine with that. Let's go ahead. And then they get to tell you why they did it or they're going to avoid a team team and then a team uses that as a rallying cry and all right. Fine Gimme Gimme something and you're okay with expansion to some extent you you know I mean baseball feels like it's already there where you go. Okay do these games. How much they mean?

New England already has their spot in the playoffs for the next year. Solidified too easy for him to stay New England will Dan. Yeah maybe maybe. I don't know how much they're going to pay. But if you go to the chargers there's a lot of upside aside there. I mean. Imagine if you pull that off. Let me see as a packers fan living in Boston. I laughed because I experienced this drama with far had the same fan. Denial Radi joining. The colts would be the biggest middle finger to Pella check. Also if you want super bowl with the colts he would hold that overmanning his biggest rival during his career. This move to prove. He's the reason for those super bowl. Titles keep up the good work and suck at front row. That's from Peter Here's one from will lead for the Carolina Panthers in the market for a quarterback they are but then or do they already have one with Cam. Newton that's a big mystery though because what's Carolina do at their position in the draft. Where are they in the draft mclovin seventh and okay? You'RE GONNA miss out on borough to UH probably Justin herber new owner. Would you try to make a splash. That's where I thought. Carolina China would maybe make an offer for Joe Borough for the number one pick in the draft damage but are tanking a rebuilding. That's some thought that they lost keithly well Christian. McCaffrey was with us at the Super Bowl and he said that they were rebuilding. Yeah y'all you know. Miami's been piling up draft picks at five Carolina's at seven. Those two spots could be enough up to get one of those guys in Miami can move down to spots and get another first round draft pick maybe a couple seconds what. Yeah but they they have to to decide if they really want to. Then you take two. I think somebody's going to go up in front of Miami. That's that's the gut feeling. I have either the giants or the Lines Yama Club. I find Miami. I'm not I'm not heartbroken if that happens then you wait one more year just to a full that terrible the way. Well unless you know if the guy is there you want. I don't WanNa take a quarterback because that's the the next quarterback up or the next best quarterback you know the positions to tricky. It's different like running back or wide receiver where you can go okay. We didn't get that guy. We got this guy. This is different with a quarterback and either either get the guy who fits me suits me or I don't take a quarterback but you'd have to say this everywhere next year's class has be better. I mean we got to headliners. The boroughs got one year under his belt and to his hurt and Herbert is considered a radic. I think next year can beat that. I don't know we'll have three years. There's assuming comes out after next year then fields. We'll have two years as a starter right very this. This class is kind of odd because of injuries and stuff. Well I. I don't know I got one year with borough. That was the best way probably ever had at that position to has shown signs of being a great player overall a leader in history ratings the record for the best passer rating ever. And you know what that means anymore and Justin Herbert looks at times. Like he's a Troy Troy Aikman and then and other times. You don't know. He's the best quarterback on the field like it's an and you can't have that inconsistency Yep I'm fascinated to see who jumps uh-huh above Trevor Lawrence to be the number one pick quarterback next year because the odds are it's going to happen to Shawn Watson dropped two drops mostly because injury but joe borough probably wins it anyway. It's happened almost every year. Sam Darnold NOCCO. I and these are all for sure thing first pick well mclovin and I have a bet one accepts it. Is Andrew Lock who went. He's at eleven or something yeah. He was wire-to-wire. That's very rare. Do we have a shower. Shame or wheel of punishment mclovin. They get to showers. Shame on Trevor Lawrence. We could do wheel. Punish Brood over onto Shawn Watson. Why why he should have gotten number one that year? I don't know I know. I think it was Joey Bosa. What sorry about that? Yeah Yeah sorry about thank you. You're on record. You Got Trevor Lawrence going number one overall right now. I'm okay trevor. Tall people like tall. No no he's supposed to be the prototype. He's the next Ryan Tannehill. I'm joking I'm just joking there. Let's make way for Bob Costas Hall of fame aimed broadcaster Major League baseball network host announcer and spent forty years at NBC. Bob Joins us. Good Morning Bob how are you. Hey Dan how you doing. I'm doing okay. Ah I was talking about my days is a little league. Did you ever umpire. I am hard a softball game. Once and I was wearing a baseball cap APP and it was some time in the eighties. So perhaps I wasn't as well known as I wound up being at one point and the pitcher did not at first recognize me and he was vociferiously Disputing my calls and you know softball slow pitch softball. It's tough to umpire. Because of the Ark of the pitch coming in and he was calling me everything everything in the book and then as the happening end that he walked off and he was giving me another piece of his mind and he got close and he goes. Oh Yeah. That's that's right you bleep. Right is just a game. Well it's just a game and baseball is making it a little more interesting. And the proposed changes by the Commissioner. Where do you stand on this? Well let me preface this by saying that no matter what I do no matter how nuance the point. I made there are some people who just want want to say what check with Costas is going to explode. He's a purist my objection to the first wildcard way back. When was not that it changed baseball baseball but that it changed it without foresight I set it at the time? Forgive this little history lesson you're GonNa have situations where what used to be. The most dramatic matic games have no meaning at all and not played out constantly where at the end of seasons teams. That would have been vying for the most important thing head to head. Didn't care at all because one or the other was already assured of a wild card. They'd rather get their pitching in place and there was virtually no difference between being wildcard and being the team with the best record in the league even if the wildcard came from the same division as the team with the best record in the league. Well if you can get to the the LCS forget about it. We start all over again that disrespected the meaning of the full season and it took some of the drama away and that wasn't just an abstract thought it played out time after time when they went to the second wildcard. I approved of it because it addressed at least some of those concerns. Okay now we have this proposal from the commissioner and we're not going to run down all the complicated whys and wherefores of it. But I think it's very interesting and it has a lot a lot of merit. I like it. I'm okay with it. I don't think it messes with the integrity of the game. I like now. There's two things here. If we add a couple more wild card burst.

Still unsigned baseball without any Chato. Bryce Harper just isn't gonna look right. What you see change your perception of any sporting events. Yet this. Welcomed outside the lines. I'm Ryan Smith the pitchers and catches reporting this week. Why is an all-star roster full of players still unsigned question servicing about what's happening behind the scenes with MLB teams. That's coming up. But first our big story broadcasting legend, Bob Costas on football, you know, in many ways, especially in the ratings department. The NFL had a banner year and fell season ratings were up five percent fan interests in the game continues to grow even now with the alliance of American football with ties to the league. The games will be broadcast on NFL network, by the way, opening week af games average, two point nine million viewers. That's higher than the NBA's. Okay. See Houston matchup on Saturday night, even the Super Bowl numbers, which were initially thought to be down had a strong showing viewed by over one hundred and twelve million people in the US the pinnacle of the NFL season used to be hosted by Bob Costas who for decades was the face of NBC sports a year ago. Was planning to host the Super Bowl yet? Again, when surprising to many it didn't happen now in this exclusive outside the lines report Costa's tells Mark Famer WADA about his removal from the biggest event on American television. In multiple interviews conducted over the last year us maintains it was all about challenging the most powerful entity in American sports. Counts back at Madison Square Garden. Resuming our coverage over a career that has spent five decades Sixty-six-year-old Bob Costas has worked just about every major sporting event. Eleven Olympic gains ten NBA finals seven Super Bowls. I Tommy seven World Series on the infield. Derek Churchill Downs, the Kentucky Derby, you name it. He's covered it. But no sport has proven more complicated for Costas than football. For more than a decade. He was the face of America's most popular sport on the most watched program in all of television NBC's Sunday night football, even as he grew increasingly tormented by the games violence. The game is unacceptably brutal. This game destroys people's brains now for the first time cost us reveals how and why is tortured relationship with football lead to his removal from the Super Bowl one year ago, and ultimately to an abrupt and unexpected end to his forty year run at NBC. What exactly do you remember being told? I'm being told that now I can no longer host the Super Bowl. I think the words were you've crossed the line. And my thought was what line have I crossed. Sports. Kostas is America's most versatile and decorated sports broadcaster had perhaps what is distinguished him as much as anything? I think he deserves to be bad. Baseball has been willingness to offer his opinions on controversial issues instinct, the owners collectively of told Colin Kaepernick to get the hell off the field. But no issue has proven more difficult for cost us to navigate then football's concussion crisis in one thousand nine hundred four at just thirty two. He was named the host of NBC's prestigious NFL pre-game show. But the Maury was around the sport. The more uncomfortable cost says he grew with its destructiveness in the early nineties when I would be at practices was standing on the sideline at games the sheer violence of the game. And then the some abrasion of that violence, even before CT became a specific issue. I just didn't feel comfortable with that. So in nineteen Ninety-three Kosta says he asked NBC to let him

Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers discussed on Mark Levin
"From from ESPN they had the dodgers winning last night's game six two zero. And then even after you know, what we've been seeing from the brewers the had the dodgers winning tonight six to three. I mean, oh, you know, you're you're seeing you know, a lot of the the narrative that can the brewers have can they ride this hot street and beat you know, this huge Iran's run spurring dodgers team. Right. And and it's like, you know, we were very hot. I mean. Absolutely. But this is more than just a streak, and this is more than just, you know, October walks. Yeah. Let's look down the line lineup. Yeah. Let's look at this. Okay. The brewers play in a tougher division and the dodgers do up and down. They play baseball. You've got this unbalanced schedule. So the brewers they're playing the cardinals. And they're playing the pirates and they're playing the cubs all teams that are well over five hundred that's the toughest schedule in the National League. And the brewers won four more games than the Los Angeles Dodgers with their two hundred twenty million dollar payroll did. But of course, they're not on anybody's radar screens because well TV the TV people live in Los Angeles where they live in New York. So they're not paying attention to the brewers. And and it can it's just I guess, I am venting. I admit it. But and maybe I've got this chip on my shoulder. But this is a great story and people should be talking about how exciting this team is to come out of nowhere and be doing all this great stuff instead of well, they're lucky the riding the wave or whatever. Absolutely. And. I think what's interesting is. You know, you bring up a good point the Milwaukee Brewers don't give as many nationally televised games. So all writing a little bit under the radar. If you're not around the area. But I mean, you look at our partitioning staff, which has been given great, you know, actually been given the respect. But even even with our pitching staff, you had you had traditions that you know, the dodgers bats are just too high. It'd be starting to Iran's. But then you look at past two games. And it's just not. Exactly. I mean, look is it possible that LA's going gonna come back and win the series? Yes. I guess it's possible. I I respect them. They are a good team. What I am frustrated with is the lack of respect that our team is getting a team that had a better regular season record than the vaunted dodgers, and at least as of right now is leading in the series guaranteeing that you know, worst case scenario there's gonna be a game six in Milwaukee, and candidly, candidly were it not for you know, one bad pitch in one bad inning. Dodgers would be trying to win tonight to avert. A sweet this has been the dodgers have been at least in my opinion completely. And totally outplayed by the Milwaukee Brewers. But don't expect to hear that if you tune into the national coverage, here's a text. I'm sick of hearing the national media keep on insinuating that the brewers are over achieving lucky and that NFL likely. Manager of the year Craig counsel, supposedly doesn't know what he's doing. Absolutely, absolutely. And I mean, this I guess this is what you come to expect. When you have this great local team that's on the national stage. But I'm frustrated with four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. Let's talk to let's see let's talk to Dan in greenvale, Daniel WTMJ good afternoon. Hey, Jeff, I think it has a lot to do with the west coast by Fania. The market out there. You know, I don't think I don't necessarily think their their dog and the brewers just they're really hoping for the dodgers in their for their ratings are greater back on what Kansas City won the World Series. Great World Series of very low rated. Yes. Right, right. The the ideal dream of the networks is Los Angeles. And now that knew it would have been Los Angeles and New York, but now that Los Angeles, the Yankees are out of it, the dream is the dodgers and the Red Sox, you know, two of the larger media markets, Houston and Milwaukee. Oh my gosh. That's flyover country. How can you know? What's that gonna do? So I think you're you're probably onto the brewers were. Okay. Sunday night. Baseball is ESPN's featured thing it's it's sort of like Sunday night football. The brewers didn't play on Sunday night baseball. They weren't scheduled any time. This year mean seriously how many times can you watch the Yankees play? The Boston Red Sox four one four seven nine nine one six twenty Mike in Waterford micro WTMJ afternoon. I definitely agree with what you're saying. And I think part of the problem with the analyst, especially as of yet don't know how to analyze a team like the brewers. They're completely different. They do the analytics like who who announces the bullpen as the starting pitchers the brewers. And so these guys that have played traditional baseball traditional cities with traditional teams with the big starting pitching what to say about him in the first place. Right. And they still can't grasp the fact that they're winning that way. It's almost like when the west coast offense came into nobody believed that the San Francisco forty Niners. We're going to be that good. Because how can you do this with their stink and drive and no running game and stuff like that? I go way up playing baseball. And I agree with you, Mike, except I'm willing to make a prediction if the situation were reversed in the brewers were the more conventional team with the starters that went seven innings and the dodgers were the ones that were pushing the envelope and all this stuff. My guess is the spin would be how incredibly unconventional they're rewriting all the rules. This is the future of baseball look at where visionary Dave Roberts. That would be the big the big story. And and I I don't think they like the fact that this new way of playing baseball is coming from Milwaukee. Yes. Absolutely. I think you're exactly right. They resent it. They don't understand it. And they okay. This is not the way it's done. And here you have this little team out of Milwaukee to been able to do this. And I just look I understand inventing. But but somebody who's been a long suffering baseball fan for a long time and a huge brewers fan. I think this is a special season. I do and. And it is frustrated me all along that this team isn't getting the respect that. I think it deserves outside of Milwaukee. Now as long as they keep winning, it doesn't matter and see. That's that's I guess the bottom line keep winning. And you know, who cares? What anybody else thinks? But I think the coverage of the brewers and the national commentators, and then blessed the left the the left coast bias that you've seen towards the the dodgers has been just appalling, I understand that you can pick and choose and somebody that's a great game or or whatever. But just just watch the criticism of the council gets for the different decisions. He makes that did end up. They end up working did end up working because what the brewers are doing right now is something special looking I fully understand dodgers. Could maybe go ahead and win three in a row. And then they go on to the World Series. And Welby said even though it's been a great year. But I mean, this this is an incredibly good story. It's a wonderful story. And it is unfortunate that that story is not. Being told to the national the national audience on a better basis. So luckily, the answer to all this is of course, just to turn down the sound turn up WTMJ and listened to Bob and Jeff do the call. That's of course, the answer to it. But it doesn't change the frustration that I have listening to a lot of the commentators who don't know the brewers don't like the viewer. The brewers don't know anything about Milwaukee and desperately want to see the Los Angeles Dodgers win. Well, maybe they're going to get their wish. But I wouldn't be surprised if I don't know every once in a while the good guys win. And maybe some of the announcers the Joe bucks of the world the Bob Costas of the world. Maybe then they'll even have to figure out how to pronounce the names of some of the brewers players for forty-nine, Jeff Wagner WTMJ. Twelve
