"brandt" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt

"I think that's an interesting quote. Okay so where are we john. Gruden's gone you. Don't mark davis. Of course it's resignation but mark davis asked about it yesterday. At the raiders practice said. Don't ask me as the league. Which tells me they told. Mark davis fire him. Which of course is now resignation. But jon gruden had say fifty million dollars left on that contract reports about one hundred million true. Do you think he's walking away with zero now. Of course not that. Resignation should mean that but now they said are john. You're going to go and he said fine. I know a lot of these emails Where the bodies buried and they probably said. Well we'll give you pick a number twenty million to go wet and not talk about and structured payments to make sure you don't talk about. I just think there's a lot going on here. And the fact is. I just mentioned this before. Transparency breeds trust. There's no transparency here about this. Six hundred fifty thousand emails about this issue about why we're not hearing anything about the washington team. We're hearing everything about a coach of the raiders. Who's been deposed. What what so. Transparency bridge trust. We don't have that here and the end the opposite of that breeds this kind of these comments. I get about the. Nfl owners being kind of a mafia. Like the just there's a code and they're not gonna turn on daniel snyder and they're not gonna turn on other people affected in these emails but they'll sacrifice grew coaches are expendable unless the coaches are in good graces. But this guy's not clearly and now it ruined piles on gruden. listen again. sometimes. I just feel i gotta keep saying this. What he did was repugnant. But i just think it's interesting. A lot of people are coming out piling on rudy about. Oh yeah i knew. I knew i'm like come on. Never said across word about gruden until a week ago. Now you knew he was like it. I just lose you know to me. You lose credibility with those contacts so where we are. And they'll be a drumbeat as i've been doing to sort of see more but nfl owners probably know am. I'm not sure they're right but it probably know this. There'll be some other scandal next week. I'll be something else to talk. And the games. Of course now. The monday night game got hijacked this news because of the timing. But there's always games there's always games there's tonight you know the eagles in the bucks which i'll be streaming for on twitch please come to my twitch stream andrew brandt live police do but the nfl owners know that there's always drama. I said this this week. The nfl is full of intrigue drama an interest and then there are the games. Not the games are just a front for this crazy business. Okay.

Lawmakers Continue Police Reform Negotiations

"May of last year, lawmakers in every state and the District of Columbia have introduced more than 3000 police reform bills. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports. That's double the number introduced in 2017. Theo U. S Department of Justice is investigating the Minneapolis police and other departments. And brought civil rights charges against Derrick Show. Vin and the other former officers involved in George Floyd's burger Cities and school districts have responded to Minneapolis public schools, joined districts across the country and cutting ties with police. And Minneapolis City Council members made headlines when they promised to defund the police. That's provocative shorthand for rerouting public safety dollars to social services that can reduce crime. And it's also something we have really heard from the general public. I asked my colleague, Minnesota public radio reporter Brandt Williams when he knew something was different. Well, I guess Anjo like many people, when I first saw that bystander video Usually there is a situation between a police officer and somebody there's a officer makes a split second decision where they fire a weapon. It's over in a second, but this happened Over nine minutes. We heard George Floyd pleading for his life, and we saw the reaction of the officer Derrick Show Vin, just not changing his expression, and he kept the pressure on. So I think that's when I knew as a boy, You know, it's gonna be really hard for this just to be pushed under the rug or just kind of forgotten about. During the next news cycle. And Brant the response from city officials that was swift as as well different than than what we've seen in the past, starting with the quick firing of officer direct Children. Right that that was different. I mean, usually there's got to be an investigation or there has to be due diligence done here before we make any disciplinary decisions. But this was the next day chief Mid Air. Arredondo came right out and said that this officer is no longer A member of the Minneapolis Police Department, and he fired the other three officers involved as well.

Live Streaming a Podcast: Is It Right For You?

"What do you think it means when we say we want to livestream podcast. Yes a real way. Means is just livestream. The actual recording. Now i know for example. Ross brandt told me that he's been talking about that For for years and he says many podcasts. Don't wanna do it because There's then you can't produce it right. You can't edit out things so what you say is what you say now. Of course on the back end. I can still edit things out of a podcast. Chances are that. I actually will edit. Anything out is pretty slim to none. Even though i do that sometimes mostly for technical problems which which which do happen but really just you know instead of recording your podcast on zoom or whatever you stream yards and you know livestream at to all the different channels and that's really truly how simple. I'm going like this in quotation marks. How simple it is to pull that off now. I stay simple in quotation marks. Because as i mentioned there's all kinds of things that can go wrong. You know your internet might drop out. Something isn't working. The guest internet might drop out. Something else isn't working. One of the channels isn't taking your your signal for example who knows so so. There's a lot of things to consider. The other thing i've found is it is actually. It takes a little more prep for a lot of people to go on video right so if you do audio only you can sit wherever even though. I would recommend a lot of times to stand. I'm sitting today. Just because of the way the camera is set up But standing if you do a lot of talking is actually better But it takes longer to get ready so even though you guys might be laughing of screen but this is how i look when i'm dressed up you know. This is as good as i'm gonna look if you're listening on on audio version. I mean you. I gotta pull on an an an hat still an sweater because it's still kinda cold but it does take more prep time in my opinion to go on video. Now when you don't when you have some hesitancy there you can also just do audio version riot. Just put up the logo like you guys had at the beginning when christian started talking. And just do that. I mean just you know. Don't start with everything started to a phased approach.

Britney Spears' conservatorship, explained

"Justin timberlake publicly apologized to britney spears even though their relationship ended like twenty years ago. The apology has a lot less to do their bygone romance and much more to do the reckoning over how this country treats its famous young women and britney spears has gone from something of a villain in this story to something much more closely resembling a hero. The freebritney movement deserves much of the credit for that transformation. It's a fan driven campaign which hopes to liberate brittany from her conservatorship constance. Grady has been covering free brittany for. Vox so a conservative ship is illegal solution for what happens if you're an adult but you can't make decisions for your life in your best interests. So this is something that is used if you have a mental health condition or brain injury You're developing dementia. And you're unable to care for yourself. So accord will assign someone to do that for you. So britney went under conservatorship in two thousand eight and under the terms of her conservatorship. She's not in control of her finances or business or personal life so for about two years now going back actually to the point that the conservatorship was set in place in two thousand eight but most intensely for the past two years and especially now since the release of be new documentary framing. britney spears. Fans have been speculating. That the conservatorship has left britney spears as a prisoner in her life and that she might need to be rescued. Okay well let's go back to two thousand eight and talk about why britney spears was placed under this conservatorship. If you think back to two thousand eight you might remember that. There was just nonstop goth coverage of britney spears that year relief and in two thousand seven especially as well. They're repoprt ati following her around. All the time would like wait outside her limo when she was going to clubs to take up strict photos of her and then the entire internet would discuss her underwear and she was starting to react back to them. In increasingly bizarre ways she started yelling at the paparazzi in a british accent once he attacked hover car with an umbrella. Please please seed saved her own head up. Which was all photographed by paper off. They're very famous pictures of her sort of grinning and holding up a to her scalp. She went in and out of rehab. A few times that to the pictures were all over teams. The press helps them now and is performed at the emmy in two thousand seven in this kind of infamous performance where she was sleepwalking through it the press discussed whether she was fat now lot there was a lot going on for her. It was not a good year. Fears has lost so she fits under psychiatric hold twice. What does that mean. She is put in a mental hospital and not allowed to leave what happened. I think that one angle of what happened to britney that we have to hit here. Is that the media industries incredibly sexist straight and even more so when she was coming up. There's one subject we didn't discuss. What was that. everyone's talking about it. Well you'll breasts. There is that whole narrative about whether britain a real virgin and that some like ruin adults would ask her at press conferences. And my of virgin. I think especially when she was with justin timberlake and they've never really cared about justin timberlake's virginity because who would. It was just about britney in her schoolgirl uniform. And you know each. She actually a good girl. There was this intense very sexualize focus on her life. That just wasn't there. In quite the same way for her male cohort. No matter how famous they were. It's hard to imagine that that did anything good for her. And then why does the conservative. Come about a month after the second psychiatric hold. Her father says these are not working. Long-term go under a hold. A doctor will say okay. You're fit to live your own life. Now she'll go out and then she'll spiral and it happens again. So he asked the court for emergency temporary conservatorship over brittany the courts. Brandt that order and then it becomes permanent.

The Freedom To Be You

"Now. The topic i wanted to discuss in this podcast. Episode is the topic regarding the freedom to be you and this actually comes from the last four to five weeks in the podcast community. We've been talking about this weekly. And it all started with a discussion around the concept of branding so when i graduated from college i my first job. I interned at a company doing marketing. And then what am i first. Jobs was at an advertising agency. And i learned a lot while working at the advertising agency regarding marketing regarding branding and this specific agency that i worked for was known for coming up with the brand of what happens. Here stays here for the city of las vegas. That was one of our a. Customers at the advertising agency was the city of las vegas or the the It's actually the city. But they're they're ministry of tourism. Or whatever the acronyms for the entity responsible for getting people to visit las vegas so they had the agency had come up with this branding campaign. That what happens here stays here and I'm sure many of you have heard about this. It's it's a very popular Brand for the for las vegas. So branding is a very important aspect of marketing. But it's not necessarily the same thing as marketing. Marketing is what you want your customers to do for example in advertisement that convinces them to call your phone number to hire you for Air conditioning repair or whatever. It is but branding is something a little bit. Different brandon is everything that you do to evoke a certain feeling from your customer. So that when they think about your company they have a certain feeling and many large brands focus heavily on being consistent with their branding. Apple has a certain. Feel a bmw. Audi ford radio. Any major brand has a brandt. has what's called branding. And all of their marketing revolves around the brandon and it starts with something as simple as their mission statement so think of brandon as what a company wants you to feel about them and marketing is more what a company wants you to do and because i spent so much time at an advertising agency and learning the ins and outs of marketing. And the ins and outs of branding I started to think more recently about how we as individuals actually do the same thing. We have the story that we have about ourselves and then everything that we do when we interact with others revolves around maintaining the brand that we want them to associate with us and as silly as that sounds. I think it's very real right. You may have a story about you. Which is i am an intellectual person and look at me. How i read so when i post a picture on social media of hey check out this book that i'm reading and that's all part of my subconscious branding effort to make sure that you know that i am a person who reads therefore i'm a person who intellectual or things or things like that The clothing that we wear the way that we do our hair the Type of vehicles that we drive the sports and hobbies that we participate in. All of these things are involved with our personal brand. And i think it's important to understand this not because we're necessarily trying to eliminate our stories or to eliminate are brandon but our effort is to understand ourselves. Why does this you know when someone does or says something. Why does it affect me this way. Oh because it's inconsistent with the branding. That i have about myself that i want them to perceive about me. Now i've encountered this firsthand in my own practice with When i was going through my transition faith and i had this story about myself. Which is that. I am a good person. I do good things. I i'm not the type of person who's Going to intentionally do wrong Or i guess in its broadest sense. I'm not a bad guy. I'm not a bad person and i. I liked to be known as someone who's nice and friendly and who does the right thing. That was part of my personal brand. Or i guess is part of my personal brand

Say the lions have if goff's good great if he's not okay they're rebuilding and they got a couple of extra number one's coming up at smith point final. Say something about the super bowl. Here we are. We made it the covid World the cove season that some of us. Even you know in including this guy. I was so concerned. I didn't say the. Nfl should not play. But i did say as you've heard so many times. I'm like a really doing this and we did it. Reports a record this on monday of super bowl week we've got a couple of covid I don't know if they're positives or contract traced players already for the chiefs not a surprise. I mean it'd be neon naive to think it'd be different right. It'll be naive to think things would be different With the way it is now so we've got a covid situation with the lions. I mean with the chiefs. We'll see what happens Am i like said to. The game is obviously you know. I think the chiefs have such explosion which every team wants but where there's no concern at all being down ten ten plus points were other teams. There would be concerned to spend every other team Because of the weapons because of homes because of their quick strike offense. I said this two years ago when you have the combination of andy. Reid won a more creative minds in the history of offensive football with patrick mahomes and the speed weapons that he has. Yeah it's it's pretty lethal. So i do favor them. I am impressed by braiding. The bucks Going to catch up to be on the road. Somebody now i thought that bay obviously. But i think now it's going to catch up to him. Even though their home in the weather the travel to washington and to new orleans and to green bay and before that the end of the season they were traveling to the last three weeks. I that's tough you know in the winter is going to catch up with him. In my opinion. I just think they have a good defense but this is different. You know this team is different in less than sabe. This is not a slight on brady but this came up with stafford. It just seemed like overnight. Staffer became this really good quarterback of the same people that say that. Hey look at this quarterback. He didn't win ex playoff games. He didn't make it to super bowl. He only won one super bowl. Li like rogers. It's like embrace Would stafford seemed to become a lot better overnight. Going to a team that could win. But i thought it's about the quarterback..

Then we'll just sorta like dive into the whole mix. Tammy i know one of the things. I've heard repeat over and over in different. Conversations is that you grew up as a kid. Shy how curious. I know you said that. What i'm curious about is how did actually show him in your. You know what's funny as after this conversation. I actually have an interview with the editor in chief of my high school newspaper. The viking vibe which is to be the editor in chief bub. So it's like a full circle moment. But that takes me back to. When i was seventeen when i was in high school. I dreaded speaking up raising my hand in class. Standing up in front of people to speak was my worst nightmare. And i really found myself expression and some confidence in writing which is why i was drawn to journalism and decided that when i went off to college i would be a journalism major with the dream of one day being a magazine editor so senior year of high school. There is the tradition of the superlatives in the yearbook. Many of us can remember. That and i was voted in a fairly large senior class of a thousand some students. I was the one who is most shot and i remember posing for that picture in the yearbook. They asked me to stand in the lobby of the high school. And there was this hiller and they asked me to hide behind it and pretend as if i was just scared of the world and in my head i was like this is a terrible thing to be known as most shy. This is ridiculous. But i went along with it and i just silently promised myself that i would make this most shy title a great irony one day and i would be anything but and i would go off to college and i would go where no one knew me and become the young woman i wanted to be. So that's kind of where everything changed for. Me is when i began my journey as a first generation college student. I mean i'm curious also whether soc is interesting word and it's a loaded word and it's also really impress ice word these days right because you know it. It often speaks to this spectrum that ranges from severe social anxiety to introversion. And what's interesting to me about that. And i'm curious about how you experience it is you know we. We have looked at generation -ly Shy or introverted was the functional equivalent of broken. There's something wrong with you. the has to be fixed. I think susan canes quiet hope and so many people's eyes including me. Because i'm definitely more than the introverts side of the spectrum and really made i think a lot of people wake up to the fact that is there. There's this sort of like spectrum and it's not there's nothing wrong with being on the more introverted side of it you know unless it manifest in exile or things that actually stop you from living life. You want live. That's why i'm curious how you actually experience it like. Did you experience this as just this. Just the way i am. And i'm actually pretty good with it but for the social reactions to it or was it actually more of leaning towards like a social anxiety type of thing for you so i am an introvert and i think that is different from being shy and a christians and extrovert so i we complement each other. Really well An introversion has actually been a great strength in this year of twenty twenty. You know it's made me very well equipped for quarantine and and given me a lot of resilience But as a kid as a teenager being shy. I was really afraid of judgement. That other people would make me. And what i had to say and i no longer identify as shy because i i think i realized that i had to make my voice matter and stand up for something and when you do reframing and recognize that you can push yourself to To speak up and be a leader to serve others. That was my way of overcoming. The fear of Other people's judgment was i socially social anxiety would label it as that Because i did have friends. Who like the studious. Quiet bunch who. I had good relationships win. But i never went to a school. Dance a Ironic we can talk about this later. But i i. I worked for seventeen magazine before starting. She's the first. I would be part of a magazine that i never felt cool enough to read because i didn't feel like my clothes were stylish. I didn't wear makeup as a teenager. So i think those i think my insecurity came from what now. In retrospect piece it together this way of seeing these images of what a cool confident girl looked like. And i didn't think that aligned with who i who i was at the time.

What their number. One challenges going forward in marketing their product and you will hear this answer attracting and maintaining younger viewers. That's it you know old people were. We're easy you've got the old folks and if you look at all the league's demographics they got the older people. How do you get younger audience. This is one way now. I'm thinking younger in terms of eighteen to twenty five but nickelodeon get the seven to twelve. You're great you know that helps too so kudos the nfl for throwing this out there. It's fun and the other part of this is the future mega cast where you have an event. You have a a coach's channel you have another channel. You have an inside channel. You could have a betting part of it and the kids channel makes a lot of sense so as we go forward. I see more of these deals like the nickelodeon deal.

Welcome to another edition of the business of sports with andrew. I'm your host standard. Brandt where abeille produced by brian. Neal and my music producer. Unders is sam brent. My son neon blooms that new Apple music got out. You're going to get into rants today. Got a few rants about the. Nfl wanted to get into the nba. A little bit as kicks off and of course business of sports is always most evident before season. And that's happening with the nba's that come out of the bubble into the new season without a bubble but we're gonna look at a couple of business moves going on there so got a few rants today and the brand addition of the businesses sports. Let's get right to it first of all carson wentz know been talked a lot about this and since we talked last we've had an interruption in the carson wentz saga meaning that his backup jalen hurts second round pick last year showed very well against the new orleans saints in seemed like something after one week obviously extremely early way too early. It seems like a viable option for the future. That complicates things. But here's my point. No matter how what hurts performs doesn't change the fact that they're stuck with carson wentz at stake my ground i'm sticking it again carson. Wentz is not going anywhere. Until at least twenty twenty two whether he's a starter whether he's a backup whether he's competing for the job et cetera. And it's all because of the contract. We talked about this before. It's a massive investment beyond the draft choices. The contract requires so much for rationing dead money. That is just it's prohibitive. He's cheaper too key now. I know it's cash the let me just get the pet peeve out of the way when people say well he's traded he gets thirty four million off the cap cash but three four million cap so it's a wash it is not a wash it is not a wash that you don't have the player it'd be like having the highest paid backup in the league. But he's not there. It's one thing to have the highest paid backup in the league. And they're because quarterbacks get hurt and jalen hurts is runner. It's gonna get hurt. It's one thing to have because if he's not there not only do you have his number. But you have another quarterback and say veteran. Say you're paying him. Seven eight nine million plus the thirty four million dollars so let's be clear it's a wash. Now here's a couple of things. I haven't talked about wentz. Should the eagles have extended wince when they did you know before two thousand eleven you could extend at any time since two thousand eleven new. Cba you have to wait three years. The eagles way those three years in as soon as they could despite some injuries in the two previous years from whence they extended into this massive deal now should they wait it. And it's all hindsight it's all. The eagles have been the most active team in extending players. Early forever. i won't remember way back in the day. Joe banner four. You could wait. Three years would extend players one two years now. They waited three years in. It's no surprise. They jumped in on wednesday despite the injuries. Despite having nick foles it let him go. They jumped in an extended him. So did the rams which are goff soda. The chiefs pet mahomes after three years. So did they would texans with the shawn watson but there's some other examples where teams waded way back. It sounds like way back not that long ago andrew luck end candidate. The teams waited the fourth year. Not the third year the fourth year and then teams awaited even before the option year which is the fifth year to get the deal done and of course we know dak prescott who only had a four year deal because it's a first round pick compared to. I'm sorry. he's the low round pick compared to a first round pick which has which has five years after four years. They did allegedly engaged in a lot of negotiations but of course he's locked up only one year so they're different models for this Should the eagles have waited in if they waited one year with the prices have gone up. maybe maybe they'd be doing it at the time to john and patrick mahomes radio deals. Maybe they'd wanted the alike. I'm patrick mahomes which is long term but lower early money. The fact is they didn't so. I don't think you can jump on the eagles for not waiting on the wind deal and put him in position. They did what you can say about. The deal is the structure because they did the traditional bonus out structure where huge bonus than. It's an option bonus than you have a roster bonus coming up that's guaranteed so basically you have a ton of future paraded money which when you have a change a trade or lease to accelerate all that ties bonus. That's what gets you entrapped cap trouble now. I said about the eagles being active in in early extensions. They've also been active in cap money. Doing what i always say is. The best way to manage. cap is pay-as-you-go. Try match up cash and cap but it seems like lately. They've been doing more pushing out the problems. And that's catching up to him here. So the winds deal is not structured in a way where you'd take early frontloaded cap to match the cash and you don't have problems later on. We'll who would have thought your problems later on carson wentz here you go contrast that to what the forty niners did with jimmy garoppolo because in that situation garoppolo deal was heavily heavily weighted towards first year cap. I think garoppolos cash first year. You know not not. Exact numbers was something like forty two million garoppolos cap first year. Was i believe thirty. Seven million so what you have with garoppolo contract. Is you have a lot of frontloaded cap because the forty niners put themselves in you get ahead of the curve. Have a lot of money have a lot of camp room and they could load it in what that does for you as guard against future problems and who knows what will happen with jimmy garoppolo but if they get.

"The best in home meal delivery my third rant i wanna talk about carson wentz. I'm not the expert on the field. I hear about a lot. You know everybody's talking about always gotten to be such a terrible top bottom five quarterback from being a top five quarterback couple of years ago. I don't know the answer i know. Doug peterson well. I think he's a good guy. I think he's a good coach. Choose a great assist for us in green bay backup quarterback now only being breads best friend would be in a coach on the field. I'm a fan carson wentz. I've been a fan. i am a fan. I think he does things. That other quarterbacks can't do physically. I think he has the abilities that we've seen has to what's going on. I don't know but my expertise is the business. And i'll say what i've been saying all along there's no clear in the nfl. Not with the investment. That team has made into a player as carson wentz. Because as i said there's some players who been invested with top picks. There's some players have been invested with hundred fifty dollar quarterbacks but the combination is right there the only one mediator close who'd be jerk off so in terms of getting rid of him. No not gonna happen. I mean the idea of next year. Sixty million dollar cap charge. Untenable won't happen. He's there people have said that a trade is a different look on the cap side. I have to research that again. I'd the way i am taught with a cap. Is that whether a player retires is traded or is cut. It's the same kaplan -cations which is the anathematise. Bonus accelerates right away assuming before june first and their different ways and they're not going to keep a gun on the roster after june first that they're going to trade their a trade obviously so I see it the same way now. I have to be convinced that it's different. And even they're talking about thirty four million or thirty something million of dead money in two twenty twenty two which be disastrous dress and the problem when people talk about. Well you get rid of the salary so it's almost a wash. i hate that. that's not the case. It's not a wash because you don't have the player okay. It's not a wash when you don't have the player. So that's the prob. You don't have the player so i you know again. I don't think they're gonna do any thing with carson wentz roster wise whether replace partially by jalen hurts or not. We'll see whether replaced fully next year will see they may be hosting a playoff game. I still give them a chance looking at the schedules of the other teams in the nfc eased and daniel jones is heard in washington. Got a terrible schedule ahead. So we'll see and they play my packers the squeak. I don't think they're going to get a win. There the eagles but they do play washington and they split with new york. So we'll see what happens there aright for this week's edition businesses sports podcast. Thanks for listening my soapbox about the fact they should be playing this game which is now played by the time you hear this and hopefully no more covert positives. The businesses sports rules.

"Hello and welcome to another episode of the duct tape marketing podcast. This is John Chance. My guest today is Brandt menswear. He's an inspirational Speaker Award winning musician and author of a book. We're going to talk about today called black sheep unleash the extraordinary. Awe Inspiring undiscovered you. So Brandt welcome to the show. Thanks John Great to be back. I have to tell you missed a huge huge opportunity in the title I know what? You're going to see a work on the you're. GonNa say I should have said you with an e w well. Inspiring. would be amazing. In fact, I only your L. now if you want, I got it today. I love it. I thought about it and I'm like. Laugh me just straight out of the conference center if I come here with the how she how much she pun can somebody. You know another thing I thought as I was reading your your bio award winning musician I wonder how many? Of these speakers authors our. Music, I mean you did it professionally but music oriented or songwriters or I bet you, it's I. We were talked before I started recording I was talking to Henry he's actually songwriter and he said in his in his comments. He said, you know the older I get the less I need to know and I was like. country. Song right there. True. I'll tell you it was the hardest honestly the hardest shift. For me was was moving from writing songs to writing books because when you're writing songs. You know if you've got ten words in can say it in five you say in five and with a book, it's like if you can say intense say in twelve and make it make it a little more descriptive. It was top out for me. Yeah. So. Let's get right to the hardest part I. Think about this book is the you claim we've been lied to about purpose. I believe that the biggest lie we've been told about purpose is that it's something we find in. So many of us have spent decades. On this Indiana Jones like quest searching for our crystal skull and purpose and. It just is not true purposes. Something we choose and the question is, how do you make the right choice? and. That's really what this book is about. It helps you get started by choosing purpose in alignment with the things that matter most to you. Does away put more responsibility or accountability on. US. Like can't find my purpose I don't know what I'm supposed to do in life. That's like you gate on that for a few years ago. Yes. Idea that if I have to accept it I get to choose it will then on not. In the net SORTA harder. Well I mean you know at least in my experience, it's a fraction of a fraction of a percentage of people who have done the work to discover what they're non negotiable czar and can tell me what their lives purposes in one or two sink sentences and so. because. Of that, I'm very busy man. Thank God but but the truth is most of us are weighing it and and we've been successful winging yet. So why would we want to actually do some really hard work to see what's possible when we're comfortable where we are? Well and I would suggest by the way I I made a note here that I I loved your explaining of where the term winging. Comes from I was not familiar with that people waiting in the wings you know getting their lines actually to sub for somebody. In the wings. That make sense That's exactly right and that's how we've sort of adopted our lives. Now it's like I'm just GONNA I'M GONNA sit over here in the wings and when something's thrown at me I'll do the best I can in the moment but we don't actually learn our part well enough to not be looking at the words but what if it seems like we are I mean like you know I don't think people go yeah I'm just GonNa wing it for a while I, mean I think The. Best. I can you know I'm getting along here this seems like a good place to be right now I mean. How do you I mean where do you get the leverage then decided? Started I'm going to change I'm being intentional John. The way that I try to describe it, the people is being intentional is putting a destination in your gps that's being intentional. But knowing every turn, you're going to make between here and reaching your destination while that's acting with liberty intention, and there is a monumental difference between those two things. Can come back to that. But first I want you to explain to me why black sheep Obviously the title in you're talking about these being your core values there's a lot of negative associate with black sheep so Help me reconcile young couple hundred years worth of demonization why not put that in the tide I was forty seven years old when somebody finally explained to me the actual reason why black sheep or not valued like the rest of the flock by farmers and when I found out the truth I was so incredibly shocked that I had I have lived forty seven years without knowing this that it led me sort of down this path which led to the book, and so the reason that black sheep or not valued like the rest of the flock is because of black sheep's wool cannot be died. So in effect, every black sheep is on hundred percent authentically original and when I heard that I'm like that's that's my whole life goal is to just be the hundred percent authentic original that I was I was created to be and so when I when I sort of started to to think about it I said you know we actually all have the. Surf, five or six. Deeply held personal core values that have been developed over the course of our lives that outside of a catastrophic event in your life, they rarely change. They are like that black sheep's wool. They are the things that no matter how much someone wants to try to twist you change you. You simply will not be moved in and that sort of the premise of discovering your flock of five black sheep values.

But three months without access to the outside world in a physical sense. That's hard. So. You know Jimmy Butler and Lebron James of the headliners. There's all these coaches and players staff their players that never play everyone's going through this So it's It's interesting I. Think it's cool matchup. Jimmy Butler talked his way or did something get his way off of Minnesota and Chicago and Philadelphia? But he just seems like A. The last laugh now, right? He's the one that. Kind of leader on the team he kind of bought into the whole Miami heat system they seem like a cohesive group they've got players, they found players found. that. Got It going. But then of course, the Lakers have a two best players in the Bronx and Anthony Davis. And now we'll see if they're gap between two and three. can sink against the heat. I kinda like the heat. In the series. So anyway, that's not really business. Is. This is great for the NBA, but there's a rude awakening without fans with this lost revenue, their caps GONNA go down smart decisions there. NFL'S CAPS GONNA go down. This is all things we're looking at twenty twenty one not knowing whether Kobe is still going to be an issue going forward baseball as well. Baseball doesn't have a cab but reduce caps for base- for basketball and football make some hard decisions.

"In a normal year, we don't have any players opting out. and. Choosing to do something else besides college football and college football by the way is going with all these schools but we have several top first round talents the line minute Oregon. The receiver at Lsu Caleb Farley had Virginia Tech Michael Parsons at. Penn State even though Penn State's coming back. He's not and think about it. The most we've ever had, we had some Bowl Game Mrs we have Nick Bosa got hurt three or four games into Ohio state season one year, and of course, he took the whole year off. That's as much as we've seen, it's getting no attention that these players at the top of the draft several of them. Aren't gonNA play and we're assuming they're gonNA be drafted where they would have been without playing, which is basically saying they didn't need to play to solidify their draft. And I don't think this is why no this has never happened in numbers in a as far as know, Bosa is the most it's ever happened with playing three games. So all these players. Are Going to be out of college football. So it really is interesting to see this happening college football not be the same old affect popularity college football. No, it just shows you the brand. Is more important than any individual players unless of course, your top quarterbacks I suppose. But we've got players from Penn state from Oregon from Virginia Tech from Lsu that are opting out they're just not playing and it's really interesting to see that I don't think gets a lot of attention maybe because the brand is bigger than any players in college football. That's one issue a now we turn to the pros. We've got an outbreak, a mini outbreak in Tennessee as we talk four or five players four five staff members. That's an outbreak Tennessee. Titans are closed down through Saturday. We're hearing they're gonNA play on Monday against the steelers if not Monday maybe Tuesday what we're hearing is that, hey, competitive inequities it's going to happen everything in football everything sports is really built around competitive balance the draft why competitive balance the cap why competitive balance restraints on free agency why Competitive Balance and the? Reason is we want a level playing field. We don't want money to be the reason we don't want competitive inequities. We don't want competitive imbalance, but now in the year of Kobe, that's a thing competitive imbalance and everything imagine the titans taking the field on Monday or Tuesday it could be having not practiced adding to bring up practice squad guys to replace frontline players and the question becomes is that fair in the question? The is it doesn't really matter the NFL's not going to disrupt based on one game because I think they think. They're going to be more disruptions. It is absolutely deny. I. Mean.

Baseball's dealing with that and good for baseball. They don't have any outbreaks beyond the marlins right now but let's get back to football. As I've said in its on hobbyist point the definition of practicing in football is APPs is the diametrically opposed to social distancing. There will be contact as the NBA. but there won't be bubbling. So it's going to happen. The odds are in every team is in the analytics in statistics and quantitative models that always suggests there will be infections and you know I think we're coming to realization how hard this is going be to thread the needle. As, do with whether I or anyone else wants football loves football to see it happen I, mean those are silly stupid comments by people. But. Can they throw the needle on this? No. I don't know. I'm not optimistic that we have in uninterrupted sees. I'm not optimistic that the NFL can thread this needle.

Speaking instagram to Sean Jackson puts it out. It is a quote about Hitler about from Farrakhan. It's obviously NFL towards Jews. It's something that you read, and you say Oh my God. He's basically calling out Jewish people in a very dramatic way and. You know first of all. Desha Jackson is not twenty four years almost thirty four years always thirty three years old. There's not a lot of excuses for that He knows who Hitler is. He knows that Farrakhan has been an anti Semite. This is something that just doesn't seem where he can sort of. Apologize it away and say now we're GonNa Learn Your GonNa. Learn that's great. But this is This is more than. I think other people saying things that they are totally ignorant about. You know, it's hard to be ignorant about the word Hitler I, just think. It's Horn what he did. It's vile and. Now, we get to the eagles. What are they gonNA do well.

"Okay encourage you to take my Patriot page for more content for more access. All those good things I think it'll be a nice thing for both of us. The listeners who WanNa jump in and myself now to the news of the day. It's been quite a week. I want to talk about race. give you some personal background. I grew up in Washington DC. I grew up in. A Nice Area Across from me in Chevy. Chase Maryland was a park called candy. Cane Park I used to go there all the time. Dribble my basketball down. Wait to get picked to plan a five and five and I was usually one of the only white players, and probably the shortest one of all, so it'd be the last one picked always in some team would begrudgingly reluctantly take me on. We play five on five and. I think one of the moments that stands out in my life is when I made a move in somehow Juke, my way through the whole team in made a basket over the trees. And laid it in, and it was just silence. And then one of the author guys said Hey. Shorty can ride. Shorty can riot. when I'm when I'm not doing well or when I think I can't. Think to myself short can ride. It's the way I. Think about things. Anyway grew up working for my dad in the summers. He's a general contractor I. Didn't work for him in the office. I work form at the at the pit. Whatever house he was building whatever housing development he was building building a hotel one time. Holiday Inn in Alexandria Virginia. And I would be on the pit, and I would be the only white kid and they look me. Call Me Bj Boss Junior. They'd be doing out here with us. Why aren't you Dan to pool warranty and air conditioning? And I said this is what I'm doing. You know what I did and I had. I was a labor helper, and I got them tools I got them lunch and I'd hang hang with these guys. And it was just a great experience for me again. I'm not bragging only white kid around, but it was just an experience. And then I, didn't make my varsity basketball team so played on boys. League team I was the only white kid on my team in one of two or three in the whole league. Just just telling you my experiences, so my point is. I didn't see race. Black people minority. I didn't see black people I saw black. People's a majority in my experiences. And it's just a different way of looking at things because I just felt like race was something that was there. And I was the minority in a lot of situations now in other cases that go to school, which was primarily white, a suburban school private school the Maryland. My best friend was a black guy. I was Jewish guy. We were both one very few of.

Go on and on about me me me me me me me and I'm down myself thinking you have not shared with me. One thing you will do of value for this business. He's talked about is how this business will be good for you so I think you and I are a nice little Van Dyke Brandon with art. Early Roy Name Union so interesting because my assistant at Green Bay. No we're GONNA talk about our lives in the NFL. But my assistant in the packers was a woman and who came into. Green Bay Packers. Now she knew who? Brett farve and the packers were but ask her to name five players on the team and this is for someone living in Green Bay. Ask Her what a football play look like. She probably couldn't go into that but she had a skill that was so important for me. Which was data analysis? She came from a trucking companies Snyder. Trucking and she could call eight the reams of data. That is you know better than anyone came in from the NFL every night in whatever it ship it out access or Microsoft whatever and collate and collect and organize and categorize for me. The way I'd like to see every morning was perfect. She had the perfect background to do that. I didn't care that she didn't know football plays I didn't care that she didn't know stats so for the jobs were talking about. Everyone gets caught up in sports. The Games it. What draws its romantic. I get it but you're applying to do a special skill as you said to make the job easier. Whoever you're talking to and that will usually involves segmented narrow approaches to things. That aren't the sexy things out there. And yes maybe you'll be brought in on Goshi conventionally. Maybe you'll get to work with a player eventually but if you're going into it for that kind of Glamour. Forget it because it may happen down the road and it won't be that glamorous or sexy and then you're just doing a job and especially say this to people wanted to be agents because if they think it's a cool life I mean it is all recruiting and it is all trying to present to twenty one. Twenty three year olds when thousands of hundreds of others are doing the same. And it's a rough life. It's a rough life and whether you are an agent or a team executive when that phone rings at three in the morning it is never a good thing so to your to your point about the life that you lead just know. Those halls are gonNA come in at three in the morning. Whether you're working for the team or the client and you're going to have to deal with it You know one other note will make while we're on. This topic is unseen times during interviews. You here or you know now that I'm not interviewing for positions in the national football league but in other millions on the team player. I'm a team player on a team player. Well let's talk that through a minute because being a team player means you never get to say. Well that's not in my job description or that's not my job or that's not what I do. Not No no no no no you told me. You're a team player. A team player means when something needs to be done. Roll up your sleeves and help out your co-workers. Let me tell you something. If you're the left guard and the left tackle was having trouble blocking you're gonNA slide over and help. The safety and that corner has playing man to man needs some help. You're going to head over there and help so if you're in the front office. The same rule applies in the last thing. I'll say on that sort of the interviewing trying to get a role in sports thing is. I'm an maybe this describes me as much as anything amy. I'm I'm fascinated by people not really resume not really degrees. Not really what they write you know or say or quote I'm like are you interesting period. Are you interested. I want to work with people who are interesting. And it's funny because I'm watching Lance documentary. And he's predicted he's prickly but you know what he's interesting and when. I look at resumes sometimes way down the resume you know after all the degrees in the fancy jobs. I'll see something like you know. Worked a summer camp taught swimming to Developmentally Disabled Children. And a look at the person the man or woman say. Tell me about that. Tell me about that about that. Forget all the degrees in the fancy jobs and then once in a while you'll see that person eighteen twenty twenty five thirty years old light up light up like it was so great these kids and they couldn't swim at all and they were disabled in this. And by the end of the summer this in a connected with this one named Jeremy and he's from Chattanooga Tennessee. I'm Mike Guy and I'm like yes. Yes that's who I want. Because they're interesting they're passionate. They got something. I want those people around me. I don't want fancy degrees weather where they're boring so when I interview. I'm looking down that resume like all. Tell me about that. And that's where you see what people are made up. You know what not only is that beautifully stated but it provides a wonderful opportunity to talk about a fancy degree at a Fancy University Stanford and I will note right now for all your listeners that our respective colleges Stanford for you cal for me. Pac twelve rivals. Although when we were there it was the PAC ten and I do want to be very clear. I was not there. When it was the pack eight pack twelve rivals and Andrew. I enjoy our good natured. Good spirited teasing and bantering about our rivalry and did I mention. We have the axe right now and yes. I know. It's the first time in a Lotta years that I had to mention it. All that all that good natured teasing rivalry aside. I have tremendous tremendous respect for your school Academically IT'S ATHLETIC PROGRAM DOESN'T GRADE ADJUST. I think the world of David Shaw had an opportunity to work with him. I won't go on and on and on about that. I won't said ask you this question again. Your background at Stanford you have a law degree agent team executive professor all the other things that you do at this moment in time would colleges exploring if and how and to what extent. They want to resume intercollegiate athletics. Do you believe that? Anyone is appropriately representing the interests of the athletes or the schools looking after them in. Your mind is the NC two A. Looking after their best interest in your mind or should they be represented by someone or some ones or someone else or a body. It's a great question. Amy and a full disclosure and I have to answer it this way to begin with. I am an employee of Villanova University. I work closely with our athletic department. We have twenty three sports. One of which is well known. Nationally are art. Men's basketball program and I address these issues with our athletics department often. I think that there has been a clearly a power disparity between the NCAA and the athletes. I do think programs are in the process of recognizing athlete rights. More than they ever have and I do give credit where I know. A lot of people don't to the powers-that-be that in recent months have worked on this name image likeness recognition in college sports where they're going to allow players to develop income based on their name image likeness as long as it's not done by the school as long as it's not as long as they have guardrails that they're going to try to put up to say it's not a guy is for recruiting are giving packages. That shouldn't be loud. It's just more based on the talent of the player and going out and getting frankly. Endorsement Third Party endorsement. And I'm involved in sort of working on those guardrails with Villanova into larger extent. The Big East conference but yet the power disparity has always been there. The question is what a better model and I've talked to. Jeffrey Kessler talked others. That say the model should be. Hey have no guardrails. And if Joe Chevrolet wants to pay. Joe quarterback a million dollars for driving their car. So why are we look into whether that's unfair whether that's illegal whether that shady or not I understand that argument and I understand free market obviously studying collective bargaining but I? I do think that college is different than the pros. So my point is whatever concept of amateurism we think of and I know there are people that think amateurism instead. It's just a sham. But I have a different feeling so I'm a little more conservative here. In the last thing I'll say getting back to Villanova is I mentioned. Twenty three sports and I mentioned one that people know of that. One is the only one that makes money and not a lot of money. So those other twenty two sports have to be funded somewhere and some of it comes for men's basketball. I don't know what it will look like if the guardrails are off. That's my my concern. In other words will twenty twenty-three Sports Become Fifteen? Sports and the hierarchy is always basketball. Football Women's sports and non revenue. Men's sports seem to be the most at risk so I do wonder about that. I am a huge proponent of college athletics beyond football and basketball and that is my worry. If as I say the guardrails come off well first of all in response to what you just said. My overwhelming thought is shame on me that I failed to know your Villanova responsibilities directly when posing this question as opposed to simply indirectly by having noted that you're associated with the school This is my very very first time leading an interview so you were just an absolutely magnificent teammate. You're the linebacker the Middle Linebacker who just realized I didn't understand the signal and you fixed it for me. So thank you very very much because I miss that and I appreciate that you disclose that at the outset and the information you shared was very very thought provoking and interesting. I I appreciate it and There's a lot to be thought. Through most instances like this. I'm of like mind with you. That there's not a simple answer and that things need to be thought through and we always no matter what we do whether in this instance or any other need to give thought to the law of unintended consequences and it sounds like that's exactly what you doing in your role at Villanova which is looking not only the consequences of actions but any unforeseen or unintended consequences. And I think that's terrific anyway. Thank you my Middle Linebacker for saving me on that. I got home my interviewing skills. No no worries and again pre rain here. The one thing I I'm looking at right now Villanova's this spring. Sports student athletes that had their seasons canceled are given another year of eligibility by the NCAA. Now of course the says will okay. We're going allow US schools. Figure it out. Figure it out. If they're gonNA have scholarships or with the recruiting is for the incoming class based on the old the fifth year players coming back or fourth year players so that creates some logistical issues. I'm talking Villanova about. Hey maybe we'll do a course for these springs for student athletes coming back. Who a lot of them have finished their coursework. So they'll get their extra year eligibility and again. We're not talking about basketball. That's a winter sport but we're talking about baseball and field hockey and Lacrosse and soccer and and those kinds of sports. So you know it's interesting to me. I I getting back to your earlier question. I am a big of high school in college athletes. When it comes to working sports I just think they bring it discipline. They bring us understanding of sports. No matter what sport so you don't have that ramp up period to get people and knocked and knocked whatever. The word is inaugurated into the business of Sports. So I am partial admit to a bias fully admit to bias when hiring or even my research assistance having a background in athletics is a real plus to me. Well add to your point about coursework for those eligibility has been extended. I will use an example from your car. Your Mater College Grad School Law School. That is And I use this example all the time and other Stanford man for whom I have the highest regard and tremendous respect Richard Sherman. Richard Sherman had completed his undergraduate degree and had eligibility remaining so went on to begin work for a master's degree while still eligible to play at Stanford. I love the idea of additional coursework. And if you're able to do that your students in those athletes will be tremendous.

Frustrated with fallout from his weekend gathering, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott clarifies, says fewer than 10 people were at house

"Back to us. Dak Prescott held a social gathering over the weekend. No social gatherings right now. I don't care you know if you it under ten overs over ten just Nixon. Everyone else is eating the poop right now. You do too Mr quarterback anyway. He held a party. And Zeke Elliott was also there and Dacca's upset because he thinks it's been blown out of proportion by the media and by idiots like me saying it wasn't more than ten people it wasn't out of control it wasn't a ranger But Steven Jones says Tuesday in an interview with the fan in Dallas that he talked to both Prescott and Elliott about not conducting gatherings while most of the country remains under quarantine. Here's what Stephen Jones had to say Blah Blah Blah Blah. And then do press got released a statement. Where do you come down on this March attack? Angry with them furious furious. I think two things Jane slater followed up to report that some of the images that showed the swanky bizarre looking party center was actually a a local restaurant called Nick and Sam's that she's been to and they actually took their own photos of the spread. They sent to Jack on with all these things in general. It's like if if someone were to from a PR angle examine what I did from age. Twenty to twenty eight. It would be a horrific story for the nation to follow along in general. Let's try to stay. Let's just like not get in our own way while the entire country is gripped by the biggest Health Related News. Story of our lifetime and your deck. Prescott and Zeke Elliott hanging around eating lamb wings or whatever it is eating. It's just why this wings when they don't know what was on the menu. I might be right. I have to stop. Lamps brings to stop going to my neighbor's front yard every day at five o'clock and sitting eight feet across from each other here. You're sitting across from each other not having a party inside your house with all having dinner at the same table. He said less than fewer than ten people right. I mean it's hard to keep track of the rules and get a handle on severity when the messages so mixed from layers at the national state and Cable News Levels. Dr Ci Telling People that Hate. Take a swing on tinder if you need to. He basically said it on that podcast. We mentioned if you're if you're willing to take the risk. Go down the Tinder Avenue. She said shoot. Your shot is basically what he said. So it's a dangerous time in the Corinthian because this is kind of a screw it time. Meaning some of my like. I'm sick of this screw. It like I am tired of doing this. I'M GONNA have my friends over. I've been doing this for weeks. It's tired and I WANNA see my girlfriend. Whatever IT MAY BE. It's sort of the screw it period and I think maybe that's what that got into my question. Why is Dak hosting anything? He shouldn't be hosting a heap. That means he has to pay for food and drink and everything. There's like six different people on the cowboys. That should be hosting party. Zeke should be hosting the Marcus. Jalen all of those guys who have been paid I picture. Dak and his front door charging twenty dollars a Solo Cup to come in. He's the last guy who should be hosting. They should be hosting him. It's not the end of the world but it's also west like days after he's out working out with Dez Bryant and everyone's got their arms around each other and at some point. Yeah you're young and you make mistakes again. It's not the end of the world. But you're also like an example for everyone tracking Dak Prescott in the state of Texas and like if it's cool that he's just going out like basically living his life as normally does and other people think that they can't do

I started to see that my role as a manager of this profit is to use various common goals in order to bring people under the same in the same space and so we don't come together and talk about. Let's say peace building or community building what we have in common and what we don't have in common. We actually just focus on the common goal and I've seen through that process whether that's baking bread or whether that's education in the classroom these barriers. They break away and they fall down and people. They focused on what they have in common instead of focusing on what they don't through baking bread with her.

"Welcome to another edition of the business of Sports with Andrew Brandt Howard through now with a cold that I see picked up when I was in Miami last week teaching the class at the University of Miami now dealing with his cough and congestion but I'll power through. Try to look into to nasal for you. Music key here is is lifestyle Sam Brampton Bryan and we're presented by that online lights which book experts their exclusive partner. Podcast Win Sports Net. Use that Promo Code podcast. One get fifty percents bonus today bet online at agr. deuce rats haven't done that in a couple of weeks or few weeks the Brandt's entrance edition of the business of Sports. Obviously some football with luck going on there as we transition to the championship games and personal thoughts on the packers being in it which obviously will increase? The packers are also in the Super Bowl. Talk about Kinsley. An obviously will transition to the baseball major league baseball dealing with a massive cheating scandal. orchestrated by the. I'm sorry. Go Crusader by that. Houston Astros for quite a dime with tentacles existing. All over the place. We'll get to that in a minute. My first rant is first of all a follow up to the coaching decisions I talked talked about this with Joe. Banner on the podcast last week. Quick Things Number One on Dallas Mike McCarthy who I hired fourteen years ago I was one of the people that were in the group that hired him in Green Bay. Two things that were outstanding to me in the search was that two teams called me neither one loving the cowboys so he had some interest and it was clear that Mike wanted to coach not worried about personnel. Not Worried about scouting out worry about cap management perfect for the cowboys in the Jones family. These teams all asked him as. I'm sure the cowboys did about relationship with Aaron. I've said it before what I saw. There was a close relationship with Aaron as a young quarterback developing him. It obviously changed over the years. It became stale not afraid but I think stale and that's not uncommon. Tom For relationships that lasts that long. Don't think there's anything to worry about their the one thing I will say about Mike is is that I just think that he had a rough year. I lived in Green Bay. Wisconsin not aflaid with packers for a few months. It's not bodies you know. That team knows everyone. Everything's involves the packers especially if you used to work for the packers Mike at Young children there. His wife is from Green Bay. I feel form arm. So I'm glad he gets out of Green Bay now and goes to Dallas and they needed that they personally knew that he needed to coaching new to get out of green bay. I I had enough of the NFL after nine years and moved on other things coaches. I think different. It's in their blood. They want a coach and they probably wouldn't coach at the highest level to again tougher. Mike Personally I'm glad he's Outta that into Dallas terms of the giants in panthers deal with them collectively. They were both after Matt. Rural Metro had extraordinary leverage. Is One of those is play like a free agent player. Went to one place on the way the next place. I placed boxes a man and makes the deal. That seems to be what happened. Although it seems like real pick pick the panthers over the giants have a billionaire owner. WHO's not only billionaire but seems to be into allowing for different things understands? There's a salary cap for players but not for other expenses. That could give an edge in all talk about an edge more when I get to the Astros but they give an edge on spending on sports science spending on data spending dingaan analytics spending coaches spending on extra people to help your team get ready. Why not if you got the money and you WanNa be successful slowly? Spend it now from an outsider's view. The giants are bigger name-brand than the panthers. The giants have a better quarterback situation up in coming Daniel Jones versus influx influx situation with camera Cam Newton's injury and not knowing about Kyle Alan. So we'll see what happens but matt rule is they're they're gonNA spend money. I think it'd be successful. assessable is Joe. Banner talked about this guy was successful temple which never one was acceptable Baylor issues and now he gets a program at the highest level with the highest biased in Clem owner. Besides I guess the Crock family in the Allen family so good for him in terms of the giants. Joe Judge who knows does I like everyone Joan I talked about had to google. The name will see if it comes. I don't know much to say about judge I don't wasn't that impressed at the press conference because it was all platitudes and cliches and anyone can say that. So we'll see how it goes with the giants. I know they got a lot of work to do there. As for the final team the browns had talked a lot about them. I wrote about it. I talked about on the podcast. Seems like they have picked the lane of analytics. Kevin's the fancy was a favourite apology pedestrian. The analytic senior executive. Not once but twice. They finally got their man and I hope as I keep saying pick the lane in the lane is analytics or statistical quantitative analysis. Great go with it and go all in and get the. GM buys in just like the coach and that'll be good so I'm glad they've done that. I'm glad the browns have gone. All in is supported. The browns when they went to the analytical model than they hired Hugh Jackson Axon they hired Freddie Kitchens. They Dorsey. None of those fit the analytical model so we have a lot of that going on when you talk about. Who's going to be successful? The browns may be successful. They may not be successful but they've picked a lane and good for them. That's my first threat. Second Rant of the week is about Luke equally. He retires at age twenty nine eight seasons in the NFL all of them stellar pro bowl player. One of the best inside linebackers in the history of the game may be a first ballot hall of Famer and here he walks away. Wayne it was a very heartfelt emotional social media Post you put out there the other night I feel for him. You almost felt that what he was going going through was. Hey I know I can play. I think I can play. I WanNa play but I just can't maybe Dr Zimbabwe with their trainers involved. Maybe their health professionals it was about. Maybe the girlfriend in the family were involved. But that's the decision and I see him like Andrew Luck like around cow ski. Like Calvin Johnson Johnson in the class of eight nine years seven eight nine years and like okay onto the next and people say these early retirements. They're not early retirements. These are not early retirements. So let's get that out a lexicon early early retirements or like Chris Borland. The player played at Wisconsin. Then went to the forty niners played one count on one season and then he was on onto the next chapter of his life. That's an early retirement but seven eight nine years you know averaged careers three and a half. So that's double all of them. mm-hmm each of them have their own story With Gronk of course Andrew lucked story a lot has to deal with pain. A Lotta map to deal with Rehab a lot of map to to deal with not want to deal with that anymore and they've also made a lot of money which puts them in a different category with your financial security going forward. But I think the thing with Keith to understand is he's on to the next and whatever his life takes in might be. Coaching might still be in football but he had a career. Here had a great career hall of fame career in a coffin. Career doesn't have to be fifteen twenty years and if anything comes out of this I don't think we're at a trend because only one or two of these a year but if anything does come out of it I think we readjust our thinking on career length. In other words you get the broad forearms and paid manning's and Tom Brady's that play twenty years but doesn't have to be that way and all the people I just mentioned quarterbacks and they don't get hit like these players they don't get hit like tight ends they don't get hit like middle linebackers. They don't get hit like wide receivers or running backs running backs always those links are imposed on them and that brings up my point ninety nine percent of NFL players are retired. They don't retire. They are retired in voluntarily cut and they move on to the rest of life involuntarily only hoping that someone quote unquote unretired than these players are the chosen few. They're the elite they leave on their own terms Look back and this idea that they'll come back. I don't think anyone's any of the ones I mentioned. We'll come back. I don't think Ron comes back. I know Andrew Luck. We'll come back and I don't think keithly comes back. I really don't this. This is where we are. They play a eight nine year career. It's a lot of wear and tear a lot of pain and they're thirty. I always tatum players football. or any sport professionally specially football career side. Karoo it's a head start on on a career. They have fifty years of life. Left fifty years of life go do something else now. They're financially secure and it may be hard adjusting but the adjustments adjustments probably easier thirty than it is thirty five or forty or forty five so I commend look equally for walking away when he he did. I hope it was all in his mind to do so. I was all about him. And that's where we are Good on him good on Gronkowski. Good on Andrew. Look good on magnetron. Good Patrick Willis. Football is not necessarily something you need in your your life so many players I wish they played seven eight nine years in the NFL. They couldn't and again I last point on this when we talk about seven eight nine years that's just. NFL right four years of college. Some two three years of college four years of high school three four five years before that so all of this pounding and I don't WanNa make all about concussions and all about Cte he worries in risk of that. It's also the body itself. It's also just the feeling of doing something else again. I get back to me. Bringing myself in nine. Years was enough for me. That's a career that's a length. Sam Do something else and I just get the feeling these guys are like all right. I've been the grind the NFL grind. It's like being in a submarine for six seven months and Enough enough so good on. Look equally those. You don't know Major League Baseball. The Astros caught with aside stealing scheme. That basically had a camera in center field relaying to the replay booth and then players would either here baths or there's something about a wire on their chest becomes it becomes very sinister disturb. The more you read about it major league baseball suspends the GM in the coach gives a huge verse round draft picks et Cetera. The owner then fires the coach and the general manager. This is a massive scandal but tentacles going out further. The new the recent coach of this red talks was part of the scheme at the Astros. The new coach at the mets was part of the scheme at the Astros. There now both gone. We don't know where this will lead next. We don't know what the next iteration of this is going to be It's not going to be pretty. So what are we think of it. I think we have a fundamental issue in sports about cheating and I see people come out and say well. It's you know they're they're they're mad at the whistleblower you know this is the woman on. ESPN were black. Mad at the whistle blower. It's not the right way to do it. When not much said about the cheating itself you know in baseball hesitant culture of cheating sort of the sign stealing allowed if it's manual if it's old fashioned if it's Old School but not new who school. That's really where we are so I look at it and say yeah. They need to do that. The commissioner needed to come down hard. People don't think he came down hard enough. There's there's a feeling about the astros that they're invincible. They arrogance that they can do whatever they WANNA do now. They've been struck down. This is every bit as big a deal. Deflate negate certainly more or spy gate both of them combined and is getting the attention even though. NFL dominates everything. It's getting a major attention as it should. Because listen a commissioner Manfred Goodell Batman Silver. It's all about the integrity game and if Integrity Games upset they gotta do something. Think about it. And here's what they did. Do we as a populist lose faith in baseball with us. If it's unchecked. That's a good question. Steroids were allowed to exist exist with a wink. Wink for ten years and Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa and mark mcgwire walking around with these. The Paul Bunyan arms..

"NFL teams that choose to attend in Atlanta and it. It will be his first showcase in almost three years as he's been saying he's ready. He's workout hard which I'm sure he has and he's going to put on a show for the NFL teams that show up. Whatever level person shows up to see him on Saturday in Atlanta as we hit week week? Whatever we're in eleven of the NFL season a day before game day? So much unpack here first of all my initial reaction couple all things one the NFL is putting it on the teams. They're passing the buck to the teams that if Collin Cabinet continues to make an issue of the fact he's not signed and with an NFL team in all these lesser quarterbacks have been in there reasons beyond football on its political etc the NFL can now say hey we scheduled a workout for you so now the NFL has put it back on the team. So I translated this on twitter to say. Hey if you're not signed anymore. Don't come to us. It's not about us not about. The League is not about Roger Dallas not about the NFL vel. It's about the teams the teams because we went out of her way to schedule workout. And that was for you now that that is the part that really confounds made the fact the NFL is scheduling a workout for a free agent player. I've been thinking about that. In racking my brain certainly certainly the ten years that I was with the packers never saw it happen. Never saw a situation where we get a note from the NFL. The League the Ivory Tower Our New York. That doesn't deal with players. That's our province saying there's GonNa be a workout whether on a Tuesday on a Saturday in the off season. Never ever happen happen. I can't think of any time since we're the. NFL has acted as a pro day for someone like college. Dues like agents setup for players the NFL is in many ways acting as Colin Kaepernick agent with a twist that they allegedly or reportedly. Excuse me gave him a couple of hours to agree to this that they're calling. NFL Medias saying hey you better be ready to report this. I don't know and I don't understand so before we get to the I don't understand part. We're at the policy part. And there's so much policy and precedent involving Colin Kaepernick to begin with because when he first. The story broke three years ago in August when he sat or kneeled. It didn't become a story and then it did and then there was a firestorm then the NFL tweeted out its policy. It's precedent in that policy in present was simple as this. We encourage but do not require players to stand for the anthem and everything sense sense. In terms of that flowed from there wasn't about the flag it wasn't about patriotism was military's about a policy. That allowed allowed for players to not stand for the anthem unlike the NBA which required them to stand for the anthem and the anthem got conflicted. With a lot of other things in the kneeling was take us this or that or not about racial inequality which was captured. Point is about all kinds of other things are. We've been there done that we get to the football part in and there was collusion action against the NFL. By capper. Nick and Eric read about not being signed and collusion has high legal standard. which is is that two or more teams and or the League in combination with one or more teams has colluded has decided acted in concert to keep capper apparatchik out of football? That case never went to conclusion. That case never went in front of an arbitrator to its full extent. We heard from Mark Era Ghost the attorney representing representing Kapernick. Who's been known to be a bit hyperbolic say smoking guns? Which of course? He didn't complete if they did. We would have seen. Mr Heard About him and he wouldn't have settled but there was a settlement. We don't know how much reported twenty million reported. No million reported one million. I mean we're never going. We know that the true amount of cabinet settlement but that's done so the NFL had no compulsion to set up a workout. Why did they do it? One reason is what I suggested. Put the burden on the teams. Pass the buck. They set it up there being good to capture nick all this stuff about him not getting signed and put it on the teams now. But why now what's going on. What's the backstory? Why is this happening in an awkward time tryouts are usually on mm Tuesday's trouser? Usually for this kind of player in the off season best case scenario for Cabernet best case is someone signs awesome to ride the bench. Latter part of the season probably a bad team so he can learn the system next year comeback for offseason workouts in April and be part of full offseason learning the system being part of a new team. That's best case scenario. Signs now second-best is he signs in January two one of these futures contracts does everything I just talked about without being on the team the latter part of two thousand nineteen but to suggest. Someone's going to sign fine him and even consider playing him having learned zero. It's not a running back that just runs it's not a cornerback. It just covers not deanne that just rushes the passer now. This is a quarterback so suggests there's you know he's got this workout where it can play. No He's not gonNA play this year. It's just not gonNA happen. Could someone sign him. I guess I doubt they will. I guest the largest feel like okay. We got our look. Maybe someone signs him to futures deal in January but I listen. I've been on record on this podcast. I just don't thinking happens and I I feel bad saying it because for two years. I did think it was going to happen but now I don't I just don't I just think for a backup player which everyone sees him as they'd rather go with an anonymous guy. who was you know before the season anonymous guys like? Kyle Alan. Legge Gardner Minzhu like Brandon Allen like whoever instead of con- Catholic because his a backup player. You don't want to deal with all this stuff around. I know that from teams. It's the Tabo affect in a much different way if Tiba was a starter of course they deal with the circus if cavern was a starter. Yes if it was someone like Cam Newton doing capper nick. Yeah they put up with it at least before this year. Malcolm Jenkins starter good player. There's no issues there you know. I mean this is what happens where Colin Kaepernick his seen as bringing baggage teams. Hey Baggage for backup players. That's a problem. That's why say this doesn't happen doesn't happen Now whether happens in January then teams can say we looked at it. We're going to go different way. And it gives them cover just like it's given the NFL cover right now saying we pass. Pass the buck to the teams. We acted as caps agent basically an organized a workout at our behest. The problem with the team said the league acting as agents sitting up. The workout is something. I predicted the first thing I so I had two reactions number one. Okay the NFL's passing the buck. It's not not their fault. If he doesn't scientists teams fold number two the policy in precedent of what they just did. Oh my God they set up a workout for a free agent player that that is going to be a problem because every outta work player and agent that feels like they got a raw deal not because of politics whatever whatever whatever they should set a work for them why is he so special and that's a legitimate question to ask ask on twitter today. A player named Sean weatherspoon. Same question that's going to be asked a lot veteran players players that played as much as capture nick players that have been around longer players that played more recently than capper. Nick players that play less recently than capture nick. You know what what is the criteria for the NFL to set up a workout for a free agent player where there don't do it for all other free agent players others. Listen Roger Goodell's not a lawyer but Jeff Passion in a lot of lawyers around there the lawyers. Everything is precedent. This is a bad precedent. I don't I just don't get it. That's why I think there's much more of the story we don't know. Will we find out. Maybe but this just it doesn't stick as the wrong word. It has an ulterior feel about it. I don't get it I don't get why the NFL forget about how you feel about cavern. How you feel about politics how you feel about him getting signed or not tae feel about him as a player forget all that why is is the NFL acting as the agent and setting up a workout in inviting all the teams? How is that happening? They've never done it and I don't know if they're gonNa do it again now if they start doing it great capper. Nick broke the mold on that. Every player they set up for now is going to ODA cabinet. Great Awesome Awesome. But they're not going to do that. We know that we're not gonNA have Saturday as tryout day by the NFL. Where's the teams have Tuesday as their trial day? The League has Saturday in Atlanta in the afternoon. Is there trial day. Well maybe God that'd be great but they're not GonNa do that so I just don't get it. What is in it for the NFL to do this? Is it simply mollifying Kabir Nick. Even after settling the collusion suit is simply checking the box for capper. Nick not even realizing the ramifications sounds of setting this precedent. If I'm a player that's been out of work for the NFL for whatever reason and put in a good resume now again for players that haven't had time in the NFL. I get it you never gonna think about doing that. But why him really. Why Him? Because he's got more publicity elicits than me because he played quarterback and I play right linebacker whatever it is because my agents not as good as his agent. I mean what is going on on here. That's a reaction that has not been that I think the NFL ozone answer on again. They don't want anything but the problem for the NFL. With Roger Goodell's disciplined. These things has always been this. It's not too harsh. It's not too late it's too arbitrary it's too capricious. We don't have criteria Syria. We feel like they're guessing we feel like they're making up as they go along. Why don't we know why they're doing this? It feels feels arbitrary. It feels capricious. It feels made up as we go along. It feels like a nod to capture nick for what to get them off their back. What what I don't get it again? So listen we'll see how it goes. You know my prediction is he's not getting signed. Is You know if it hasn't happened by now. Seeing him throw and run and catching he's GonNa look good. Of course it's been working out is in good shape. He's a great athlete. Yeah look good. So what what. Why our team's GonNa sign him now when they have resisted for so long saying they're happy with who they have is a team GonNa cut hut a backup quarterback? I mean come on that. They've invested time and because they go to work in Atlanta on a Saturday afternoon in late in the season. Come on it's just not going to happen. What else can I say about cap? Listen you know you know my background. The packers he was a packer Kryptonite. That guy killed us But for whatever reason it had been there awhile and at at the time he stopped playing and then of course everything didn't happen form and I just don't think it's going to happen now and I'm left scratching my head that a the NFL's pass in the book of the teams if he's not signed. Don't blame them. Blame the teams and be what the heck is president. I totally totally get any player with any kind of resumes asking the NFL to do it for them and maybe they'll find out the reason why they did it for capture nick because when the NFL NFL Says No. We're not setting up a workout for you. We don't do that. We did it. One time for cabinet because Xyz. That's what what we need to hear on this as my ran out of the week. Hope you enjoyed it. I just I don't have answers. I got a lot of questions. Scratch crush my head over cap now word from bed online. We're in it now. Nfl College football NBA..

"A brand's rance addition of the businesses sports as we hit in early part of the NFL season it's usually time turnover he really talked about the games players but the business continues to run on and i'll do another branch rants will get into some more guests in future weeks but i wanna talk about at least three ranch here the first one i wanna talk about this idea now with jalen ramsey wanting to be traded and hear you're about to number one picks in the trade make fitzpatrick to the steelers number one pick what went on with our friend antonio brown what went on with zeke elliot went i went on with david clowney so many people are asking me is this a template is this something that's going to happen is the player empowerment become a real thing in the NFL and people are even comparing it or suggesting a comparison to the NBA so i wanna address that sort of put a kabosh on the ladder thought first of all yes while we're seeing in this year and i would say last year to cause that included aaron erin donald who tried it two years ago came back tail between his legs did not get a new contract last year of course did khalil mack as well last year and and then we get into this year all different circumstances you have a zeke elliott staying away going to kabul but coming back with a new contract you have melvin gordon staying away still away record this coming back maybe not coming back but what if he does it'll be on the same contract you david clowney a franchise tag stays away gets traded you have jalen ramsey his i mentioned were with the team but there seems to be issues there may be traded and make a pitch patrick the trade of the star safety to the steelers now that's a different kind of thing and we'll talk about that idea that the steelers might i'm sorry the the dolphins might be tanking a word that gets me upset we'll get we'll get there in a minute is it a template and here's my answer yes and no and really yes if you are special now that's the caveat you can play this game you can leverage teams you can in use your power antonio brown is part of this as well but you better be special and i mean elite like truly elite if you're gonna play this and and what is this this is agitating a front office to the point of them doing something now there are a lot of front offices is that if you try this no matter how special it's not gonna work try this with bill belichick even if you're tom brady good luck with that now the t- the players that have been able to do it you know have you gotten out of their situations by being pains can you know what like brown or have extricated themselves because of an organizational strategy like fitzpatrick and and we'll see what happens with ramsey the players have gotten paid like clowney hasn't gotten paid yet gotten traded got themselves out but the players has gotten paid like brown which we thought was a big contract in oakland that turned out not to be and of course elliott yes special elite so i guess the question comes down to are they empowered yeah with a huge caveat you better be top fifteen player because look at what's it's happening with the LA chargers melvin gordon and this is one of those careful what you wish for he wants an upgraded contract they say okay you're making five this year we're going to give you a deal long term it's gonna average ten double what you're making this year he says no way that's not good enough that's way below top a market i'm staying out they say good he says i want to be traded they say good get us a good trade he tries no oh they say we're done come or not come that is usually what's going to happen now melvin gordon is a really good player but he's not a leaked so there's your template if you're not elite that's probably the best it's going to happen you're going to get an offer but it's not gonna be the offer you want so with melvin gordon careful what you wish for i think the the compared to the NBA is off because NBA players a have fully guaranteed contracts which makes it so different than NFL contracts even the elite of the elite NFL contracts we talked about julio jones just getting that it's a five year deal for jones and everyone talks about almost three those years are fully guaranteed great that's a great deal for an NFL player only only a handful of players like his teammate matt ryan like kirk cousins have three fully guaranteed years but NBA players have all that NBA players players can nonleague dictate terms of the contract cannot only extricate themselves from old situations to new like antonio davis i'm sorry anthony davis sorry but they can bring along players with them NFL players don't in have that isn't happening so to compare now i mean the one comparison is yes NFO players with extraordinary talent went are leveraging their way out of situations okay NBA players with extraordinary talent are not only leveraging into the situation they want they're bringing along they're buddies and they're dictating contract terms where we find out kawhi leonard and paul george not only extricated their situations to get to to the same place but only signed to your commitments an option after to go somewhere else it's a complete dictation of terms as if they wrote the deal and maybe they did so this is where we're going that's my rant right on that two things primarily can NBA players can our NFL players more empowered yes if they're elite truly elite super elite special special and are becoming like NBA no 'cause NBA players have massive advantages they been the players league since lebron's decision asian nine and a half years ago and that is only getting stronger while NFL players are just getting that point probably aren't even at the point of quote unquote the decision decision in the NBA in two thousand and so that's my first of the week there's a new daily sports podcast from wandry laundry was called the lead is for every type of sports fan wants to go beyond the box score it's every weekday morning it's going to bring you one big story from the all star team that let their local or national reporters could be terrible a call from last night in the NFL it could be whatever's going on it's hosted by sports rutta arctic kavita davidson over well about award journalist andrews couto they'll take you close this story that comprehensive reporting fascinating clips exclusive in reasonable hear anyone else so stay tuned the end of this podcast for preview of the lead don't forget to subscribe lead on apple podcasts were you ever you're listening to this right now okay next is about the quarterbacks i am seeing what's going on in the NFL l. like everyone else you're sort of wondering what is going to be the fact of not having superstar quarterbacks in the league we had quite a weekend in this past weekend were two of the market quarterbacks the most marketable players in the league went down one beth rob ben rothlisberger with with the pittsburgh steelers for the year for the year that's that's drastic and then of course drew brees is going to be gone we think for six weeks maybe more maybe less with a thumb injury these are massive departures when you talk about players like that and word comes out that a player player was told not to hit tom brady too hard by the referee listen everyone's asking me i'm the business guy how have they impacted is to lose these quarterbacks and obviously it's not good and i'm partial to green bay when we lost aaron rodgers to the last whatever years you know is a bummer it's a bummer for fans it's a bummer for fans of the league the brand is lesser without rothlisberger without darnold for few weeks without breeze for a few weeks potentially cam newton for a few weeks yeah it's tough but it is a brand it is not the NBA we go back to that discussion for teams are the brand not the players teams are really the brand i think the issue becomes which could happen to pittsburgh definitely may baby new orleans if they get bad that's the problem the problem is not losing the stars it's if they get bad now some people would say that's connected obviously got mason rudolph instead of ben rothlisberger quarterback you're gonna be bad that will be a problem especially as we get later this season listen in the record becomes out of play for the playoffs you know again going back to rogers a couple of years ago it was one thing to lose rogers on the packers but then they started losing if somehow they kept their head above water with whoever the backup boys brett hundley or whoever could be in there yeah there wouldn't be that much of a drop off in interest at least on the packers side but you need to do well so a bigger issue and i know people say these are inextricably linked losing your star quarterback and being a bad team but as long as they keep their head above water they should be fine the problem is really the steelers there are marquee brand if they go in the toilet if things go really south i know it's its own too but it's early early if things go really south that's going to be a big problem you can have more than a few of those because the overall interests in the legal drop off if you start getting marquee team's not doing well so a couple years ago again the packers got bad that's going to hurt the league so it's it's it's twofold so i'm saying the leaks fine it with losing these quarterbacks and lessen toll one is not bad had but a number of teams go south because of those laws quarterbacks can the saints keep it alive until breeze comes back what's gonna happen to the the steelers are they're going to be other losses market teams but if you lose a rogers if you lose a deck prescott if you lose obviously a brady you you know if you lose them a homes of course you know it's gonna have a huge effect because those teams may go south are the patriots gonna go south without brady radio that god forbid that would happen well you know we'll see maybe not with teams in their division who knows in a gun darnold it was obviously a marketable name for the jets he's gone for a while so we'll see what happens with that.

"Than the west coast could recover <hes> which again again. I believe i'll get those numbers but the culture sign not to do that. Now are the colts caught up in the heat of the moment and he's he sacrifices body so much they feel great about adam and will they make that decision to pay off the six nine. That's what we're efforting on. The other side of the money equation we are if we are suming coming that whatever leg calf injury that ended luck has he would recover from weather this year or in the off season and get back to form then the amount of money. He's leaving on the table to go to retirement and i don't think he'll be back. I say that with a lot of certainty this guy unlike other players. We always speculate relate. This guy's not coming back he potentially and this is a number that i'm just thrown out there. That i think is not unrealistic. He eap potentially is leaving behind half a billion dollars. These quarterback contracts are gonna <unk> close on two hundred million now again you guarantees. He's not going to be that. We'll see but say he's got ten. More earning years left say he's got twelve. More earning years left at twenty nine with the market going with the cap approaching two hundred million. We're gonna see forty million dollar quarterbacks okay if we're in the forty million dollars quarterback range by next year or the year after and he's got ten years earning left yeah he could be approaching approaching the half half a billion number of the rest of his career so he's walking away from that so i think i guess my point is to such the money argument here number one the colts colts are forfeiting a lot of money that they could have as per the c._b. Asked for the rules. They can get back money from lock. A retiring player omair maritimes bonus goes back to them. They have to grieve for file a grievance in but they'd win on the other hand. Luck is walking away from future contracts will certainly this this year they would pay him if he just said i'm hurt and then of course future contracts that could total again who knows were to be but three hundred four hundred close to five hundred million dollars while and i sort of return whereas started that's fine with andrew luck you know again. This is a different cat and again. I don't wanna get into well. It comes from upper middle class family. That is made a lot of wealth to me. All that is ser flu <unk> superfluous. I don't get as arguments. He is who he is and i think he's you know he lives is i've been told pretty frugal life with apartments that he buys and of course not even a flip phone no accoutrements in his life so i don't get all that you know. He lives a pretty pretty <hes> abstemious existence for guy. That's paid what he is so again all the stuff and eventually find out the financial settlement if there is one about luck doc in the colts but they're still money around the business of the n._f._l. Is really all over this one one. You have the colts not getting getting their money back but the future earnings potential for andrew luck who made ninety seven nine and who knows how much he's making this year of that twelve mine roster so he's over a hundred but wow what he's giving up in terms of generational wealth but that's okay. That's who he he is. He's different. Leave it where i started. Andrew luck is different and i'm a little different too and that's okay andrew jackson nerd i'm. I'm a little nerdy too and that's okay in a good way. That's my appreciation for andrew. Luck okay. Let's hear from our sponsor bet online. There's only one place. Has you covered the place. We dress part.

"A._g. Before we get to andrew luck and talking talking all about that deep diamond him first a word about the business of the n._f._l. In the toughest week of the year which it is right now i live this for so many years as an an agent first and then of course team executive where the teams are cut on labor day weekend. It's so ironic that the n._f._l. Labor force is reduced by about thirty percent percent on labor day weekend when we're supposedly celebrating labor. It's so tough and i say this every year but this is really stark and you need to let this sink in there are i don't know ten to twenty five players on every roster the n._f._l. That came in sometime in the spring started off season workouts in april went. Every workout went to every practice <unk> not unless they were went to every training session went to every meeting went. Every lift session went to every meeting with whoever the team brought in and played in preseason games practice did exactly what the coaches asked them to do to and from the point they entered the team until this weekend they had no chance in god's green earth of making that roster and this is the inconvenient hard truth of the n._f._l. You need ninety players. I mean they allow you to have ninety players and of course every team's gonna do that that every coach wants more players every scout wants to bring in look at more players but the vast majority of undrafted and guy signed off the street which can be again ten the twenty five team now even go to the low round picks it no shot is we get into training camp and really say there's fifty three spots from plus practice squad you know about fifty of those fifty three kinda locked up and when you get down to it you really arguing about <hes> numbers rather than players in other words when you have those final meetings cutting the team you're arguing about whether he keep a fifth safety or ninth offensive lineman whether it keep a six wchs receiver or fourth running back whether to keep a fourth tight end or tenth defensive lineman i mean these are the kind of questions russians you go through and it's not so much about town at that point and then the waiver wire and then you think you made the team but you really haven't made the team because they bring in someone they liked better from advanced scouting on other teams teams. It is just a hard time now. People will say the tweet at me. Will these guys have wants lifetime. That can tell your grandchildren. They were out camps. They met this player that did this. They they busted their butts but again. It's a cut and dry business and i'm not saying don't get into it if you're a football player but get into it with eyes wide open and sometimes agents winston teams in recruiting and blame teams as well. They sell a bill goods just trying to get a player in they're concerned about their own self interests and not so much the player but i've been there and it's so hard because you're bringing all these guys up and you're saying a by but i will tell you this learn more about these guys in their sendoff exited they did during their time there some were bitter and usually they focus on the guy you kept above them. You know again. That's the nature of failure often often man. I've been there will be focused on someone else instead of your own performance and you focus on better than that guy that guy's just new when you hear that so much but the other part of it is you see the professionalism the impression that some people leave which is spectacular and i've seen it now these guys you never heard of. I mean our member of a member of safety we had that we cut that end up in washington plato while they're tout out france if our a._n._z. in cash i mean he made me feel better about cutting him. <hes> just some guys that they come in. They go. I get it. I understand you have a job to do and then they usually you know the ones that impressed you the most come up and say i really appreciate the opportunity. Shake you your hand. Look you in the eye like wow wow that will leave an impression and to me more than whatever they did on the field how they handle the exit because it's a bitter time it's separation. It's being told you're not good enough and when you can handle yourself like that in face of that that's impressive. I try to hide from the from the turk the guy calm the names to come in and turn your playbook but you know it's extremely hard and what happens is coaches are now onto game planning. This is friday saturday this week for the next week especially in green bay in chicago where they're preparing for games third a game thursday night and it's just the coaches will come out of their meeting. Shake your hand good luck. That's it so after what could be six nine <unk> april four months snouts soon after four or five months of intense time to try to make the team as i said every practice every game taken these reps so the stars don't have to i mean this is what happens and it's unfortunate but it's the reality. Is there a better way while you have low arrest or sizes during camp. Nobody wants that. You have more time in the off season to really evaluate these guys better. I guess no one wants that from the players side. You could cal allow more players on the roster that may happen. Especially we go seventeen or eighteen games. Go from fifty three to fifty six or sixty nos <hes> two way players. I practice squad and back so this way that things could happen but listen. It's the coldest week in sports business football. Certainly i can't speak for all sports through telling ten twenty thirty guys forty in some cases. They can't be with you and they busted their button. They've done everything they can and then they see players xichang tonio brown. You know guys that are just high maintenance but they have talent. You know they see players. Get away with things. That could never get away with again. It's not equal to democracy but they're not treated equal now jimmy johnson. I believe said that the cowboys about the cowboys so this is where we are. It's a tough weekend in the n._f._l. N._f._l. I'm glad got him. I'm glad i'm not there because you know it was the law also as everyone is listening now. They know it's the last weekend before kind of we're kicks in school kicks in all those things in i had a cottage up north of green bay and that was the last time i really could get up there. So all i wanna wanna do is get away and not have to sit around cut guys but you know i had to be around which god i don't miss that at all on of course from the point of view you don't miss it. I remember having hasselbeck with the packers we celebrate made the team after final cuts and then guess who got cut in chicago game rick mirer who always had the eye of coach mike mike holmgren myers in matt's out practice squad so these things happen. You can never be safe. Things are going to happen so fast and furious so here we are <hes> approaching labor day weekend where the labor force will be cut by thirty percent now before i get to the andrew luck ran.
