Christen Brandt And Tammy Tibbetts Are Making a Difference
"Right now You're hanging out in new york Your working with is really interesting organization. That will dive into but This was not either of your original path or intention when you thought about. What you doing in your quote grown-up lives. Don't we sort of Start the story. Probably i guess it makes more sense with tammy and then we'll criminal ring you into the conversation. 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.

There's googly eyes. Isn't that cool yes i like it. You know the. Nfl is getting into a mega cast nickelodeon. Here's my point here ask any. Nfl nba nhl major league soccer wnba executive. 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. We're talking about the nfl. it's going to hap- it is the way of the world. Every marketer is looking to the same thing younger demographics. I get it. It's important it has to be part of the marketing plan. That's what you want. They're the people that are going to buy the products. They're the future so colbert or no kobe. This is the idea for. Nfl marketing for nl mlb marketing were baseball skewered older nba. They're doing a good job. They still need to get younger audience. Soccer soccer you know younger. People are invested now more in premier league soccer. What about mls. They need to get that so again. I'll say it again.

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.

How to Be a Better You
"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.

"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.

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?

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.

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.

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

Risk saying if it all goes away you still get five percent now. I don't know I have to look into this. That that's the only money players will get. It will come down to contracts. Are they gonNA play the Games but it was interesting to see that kind of an upfront payment of that hundred and seventy million so again? The key to that agreement for the players was hey. Let's just make sure we get service time and we'll see where that goes but I thought it was interesting in this time of uncertainty the major league players Association again seen as the strongest union. Not having a salary cap gets together with Major League baseball owners and say okay. We're GONNA get this one seventy million we're GONNA get service time. We'll see what happens. No one wants to cancel a season. No one wants to stop operations but they protected downside risk. Okay another rant about college. Sports people are not appreciating what the true revenues from college sports are. I know we hear all these rants about. Hey exploiting these athletes you know. They're exploiting all these student. Athletes Bring all this money into the university and of course. Nfl WE'VE had a couple podcasts. On name image and likeness but now we're seeing sobering information about college sports and this is what I try to point out and I'm not being defensive about the NCAA. I know. I work for an institution Villanova but listen you have to realize the primary revenue sources are in flux right now. The one primary revenue source is gone and that is the march madness full income from that. The other primary revenue source is in flux. And that's college football if college football goes away because of this virus we got a problem in college sports. It's not life as we knew it is no longer there because the primary revenue source for so many colleges is college football so listen. I understand you know. The shaming of the programs like Alabama in Clemson Penn state in Ohio state etc. That have all these great facilities and pay coaches ten million dollars just for the head coach and all of but they are the outliers and I don't know because I haven't seen the books. But they support all the non revenue sports so what we now have seen as the NCAA distribution to the Division One members division two members division three members has been drastically reduced because of lack of March madness. So where does that? Drastic reduction leave us. It leaves a couple areas vulnerable overall operations for athletic departments. Where we're seeing temple. Ideas talked about five percent across the board. We've SEEN ATHLETIC. Departments lay off people and then of course with the student athletes..

How Russia Is Trying To Boost Bernie Sanders' Campaign
"Last month senator Bernie Sanders acknowledged he'd been briefed by the intelligence community about Russia's efforts to boost his campaign efforts that are unwelcome NPR's Tim mak looks deeper into what Russia's campaign to boost Sanders looks like Russia's campaign includes an ever changing number of targets based on Russian strategic goals including reportedly the reelection of president Donald Trump but its support for Sanders in particular has become an attack line take this example from former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg during a recent presidential debate Vladimir Putin things that Donald Trump is should be president added states and that's why rusher is helping you but you'll have Sanders had this response Hey Mr Putin if I'm president the United States trust me you're not getting into it anymore American elections the Russian government's apparent campaign to aid centers would mostly be hidden behind the anonymity of the internet but there are ways to look to Russia's public messaging to see how they're supporting the senator Clint watts has been monitoring Russian interference as part of his work with the foreign policy research institute he says Russian state backed media was more neutral on Sanders in the fall but has begun to mirror pro Sanders talking points for scene four years ago but what's really come on strong just in the last thirty to forty five days are very similar narratives that we saw in twenty sixteen about Sanders on Russian news agencies RT and Sputnik what's noticed that Sanders received substantially better coverage than his opponents Sanders received a higher percentage of positive coverage two and a half times more than any other democratic candidates surpassing even president Donald Trump by that metric and Sanders received far less negative coverage than his rivals Jessica Brandt who works with the alliance for securing democracy has also examined Russian narratives about Sanders those tend to be that the corporate media and that the democratic establishment the DNC and elites are breaking the system against him and you know endeavoring to deny him a win another way to gauge Russia's support for Sanders is by examining social media accounts linked to their efforts in October Facebook announced it has suspended Instagram accounts with apparent links to the internet research agency a Kremlin linked troll farm based in St Petersburg Facebook share this data with graphic a social media analytics firm which said that four of the suspended accounts had a focus on praising senator Sanders he was the only candidate on the democratic side there was a focus of these fake accounts in some cases these accounts plagiarize memes and content directly from the centers can paint one post read quote millions of people in America want to get an education and Bernie Sanders is their last hope the centers can paint says Russia is trying to do their best to sow discord in the race not elect Bernie Sanders and campaign co chair congressman ro Khanna points out that the senator has been a fervent advocate of solutions to foreign interference senator Sanders has been at the forefront of election security what we need is paper ballots what we need is an investment in our election infrastructure what we needed is smart regulation against disinformation campaigns but Sanders is disavowal of Russia's efforts haven't stopped them we can yeah is the vice president of the national security program at third way a center left think tank that opposes a Sanders candidacy one of the things I think Russia looks at when they see Bernie is that he's someone who's talking about a rigged system he's talking about delete aren't with you with a long election campaign ahead this year the sense among experts is that problems with foreign interference are

My children are more aware about not just sitting at home between four walls. No I go out and work now policy. That's done your water for the past three years. She's been baking sour dough.

Smells just amazing and sledding bagels dipping them in great molasses and then covering them with sesame seeds and caraway seeds although their neighbors relations between Lebanon and Syrians haven't always been positive. Tensions have been exacerbated since the beginning of the war in Syria in two thousand and eleven Lebanese blame. The one million plus Syrians who sought refuge in their country for burdening and already creaking infrastructure and failing economy. Syrians blame Lebanese for discrimination and racism. So that's where the breadcrumbs and Brent had already started a small NGO in north Lebanon. He thought that by getting Syrians and Lebanese to bake together. Prejudice isn't fears might have less space to grow. My name is Brandt Stewart American from Las Vegas originally and I came to Lebanon about seven years ago. I started to realize in order to really support a community I needed to address the needs of everyone in the community equally. Not just one segment of it just to help foster these ties. 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.

The Steph Curry comparisons are unfair to Trae Young, but they won't go away
"We now safely say the trae young is the next steph curry. I if you want to. I don't know there's so many other things that I have to worry about. I don't if you WANNA do that. Go ahead you'RE NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa Yell at you and go. He's not the next steph curry. I do like this though the approaches. Yeah but does he play defense? Can we stop with this? How many how many guys play defense in the NBA? But let me stop somebody in crunch time. Can anybody stop him by being declared the next anybody? You're already less than them. Because that's your title like Steph. Curry was the first do it that way and so the next curry means you're automatically below them. You're an imitator. I mean it's great. He's fantastic player but he's basically modeling his craft. Well that's why you don't want people were there. Everybody's looking for the next Larry Bird. Mike member Keith. Van Horn as the next Larry Bird now. Luca Danni checks next Larry Bird. No LUCA IS DIFFERENT THAN LARRY. Bird he might be better than Larry. Bird a when it's all said and done on out there we keep waiting for the next Michael Jordan. Kobe became the original. The first Koby we keep going. Oh He's the next and and you're not who is ever the next. We love comparisons. We love cops but it doesn't always work that way and usually if it's a white guy who's good then you find another white guy who is you know got similar skillset. Glad Yeah. Googles is the next Larry Bird UNC. But until that person becomes the first they're always going to be on next you know because you haven't seen it yet so it hasn't even been identified. When do you graduate to? I'm no like when did Kobe. He's not the next Jordan. He's Kobe did he. Oh I think he did well. No he wasn't the next. Nobody's the next Jordan. You can't be now possible now if you want to say. He plays like him great when Kobe went black. Mamba then he became the original Kobe. And he wasn't the next Michael Jordan. Because we realize there's not going to be another Larry Bird just not. There'll be players who might be similar. Might be better. But there's that's the original Muhammed Ali. This not the original. Might be guys who turn out to be better. But they're the originators. Yeah pulling yeah like Koby Bryant. He he appeared to watch documentaries he admittedly modeled everything after Michael Jordan and he came up about this short of having an equal career to Michael Jordan. If you look I mean considering how close he was to the time of Michael Jordan. He over and he was really close to having an equal career.

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..
Jimmy Johnson to enter Hall of Fame, but not in Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor
"Really truly believe. It's embarrassing for the Dallas Cowboys. That Jimmy is now a pro football hall of Famer and that it actually took this. You know a specific centennial annual class for him to get in and that he's not in the ring of honor that's it's it's a shame it really truly is yeah it is And and you know I don't know we don't know you know the behind the scenes of of all that but it certainly does you know put Put their among you know on the front of the The world stage just to you know. How do you explain this right? Yeah and the guys in the hall all of fame because of what he did in your organization. Yeah he's not what dozens yeah. Yeah no exactly You know so yeah I mean I I you know I agree with you and you know it's also you know kind of you know how like we always talk about things you can't plan you know the the same very same week that Jason Garrett Leave the organization. Mike McCarthy joins the organization and then Jimmy Johnson gets inducted into the pro football hall of fame. I mean you just can't plan that I mean and you know so here is McCarthy now you know he's now he's got you know quite a high standard To you know to shoot after and then you know I I wish him the all the success and hope he surpasses that but you you know. That's pretty high standard now. Yeah I WANNA get your. We've got a criminal out into the end here but to finish the tai-bo on the Jimmy Jerry. Thing it you're right like there could be. I mean because you know there's an infinite amount of possibilities or I guess it's technically fine but I mean there is potentially a reasonable or at least somewhat understandable reason. Why Jimmy Johnson's not during a fire like that possibility does exist? But you said it I mean you. CanNot it really explain this in all this does is really make Jerry. Jones look poorly. I don't think you know I think that you look at it. I don't believe leaving Karma that's not like you know our faith or anything but I do think it's at the very least interesting that you know so you know because people say Jerry's there is only in the hall of fame because he stood on. Jimmy shows whatever but. I think it's funny that you know denied that Jerry was celebrated with cowboys fans at Agency stadium. Liam for going on you know when they give them their hall of fame ring. That night was the night. They lost to the eagles in two thousand seventeen. That's literally the worst loss ever in a ged stadium sister. You know what I mean. That's just a really funny coincidence. And you know you look at Gil Brandt who also took way too long to get him to honor and he just barely got in there before before he got into the hall of fame and at the time the writing was on the wall that he was going into the hall but Gil Brandt went in the night. They beat the saints in two thousand eighteen. You you know what I mean this like incredible night everyone will remember forever or as Jerry went on this one that everyone wants to forget and it just I think those are funny things that automatically you know make paint Jerry in a poor light or whatever he did release a statement And he said were so happy that the hall of fame has recognized. Jimmy Johnson. Awesome for what he is. That's the first sentence and it's just like well. Then how have you not you know. It's a really unsettling thing and I think that like like throwing a boomerang. Yeah it's a really a hypocrite. I don't know what word to use but it it looks really badly on the cowboys organization. That that it actually happened. I mean great for Jimmy Johnson. But you know you know. Somebody tweeted at us on the block on the boys camp. It said that Jerry should inductive an I vehemently disagree superior that the moment should belong to Jimmy and Jimmy alone because he did he has not gotten that do in cowboys fans. He should bathe in it all in his own. If he wants have his players you know like we talked triplets. Think that would be cool but this you know. It's a really really really bad season for Jerry. Jones the owner of the cowboys. And this is kind of the. You know the closing of that circle so to speak. Yeah no I totally agree and and the yeah. Yeah I mean I I think that You Know Jerry Has Been Very very kind of to due to Jimmy in terms of you know whatever success cowboys have had in terms of including hammer recognizing them for that in fact you know may have even gone out of his way to try tried to leave him out of it but You know this it's here is something he cannot ignore it. I mean it It's very vivid. Part of You know with the cowboys success is is due to and And Yeah I think it's Jimmy's opportunity. I'm you know Going there and enjoy the moment with themselves by you know himself on on a standalone basis as a as a dynamic coach that You know did some some pioneering things to change the game and I do believe that firmly

Sometimes sometimes things are cheap for a reason you look at you look at Energy Energies at Nineteen Times trailing you look at Apache Their fifteen times and the reason is that they are or just having tremendous troubles with a really key drilling that they're doing down in Suriname and not making. They're not making any real effort. They're not they're making a lot of effort. They're not making any headway there and they're having troubles elsewhere which is to say that they are having real production troubles. How are you gonNA make money? If you can't produce produces sixty dollars stock five. This is genius. This is not. It's not a cycle energy. Call you say this is a broken company broken company. Okay now Victoria do I understand is the Houston resident on this panel. You are sending an oil and gas dock also back. I am at least part of it right. I'm not thinking you have to completely sal. Exxon Mobil that's our peck but it may be trimmed. The position a little bit. Not because we don't like it is a holding for the long-term but really because we think that it's a better use of some of the funds. We have received from out over the past year. You look at that chart year to date on pricing. I mean from the end of the first quarter. It's just spend downhill all the way we think there were better uses of funds than keeping an Exxon AAA credit rating. It doesn't have a lot of debt relative to its cash flow. It's got five percent dividend yield. Well that's why long-term mm-hmm I think it's holding but trim some of that position while it was doing the steady decline down use those proceeds higher quality name in your portfolio. That was doing better this year. Okay Okay and a final returned to sender from Dan Nathan. I Would Victoria says really important is better uses of funds right now. We don't all have finite amounts of capital like you. Their guy I mean I need but what I'm saying is so. Let's go back to Apple. We have an infant. Yes apple and just to put you know I've been wrong in this thing for the last. Let's say ten percent over the last month or so. The thing is gone parabolic. I think the last time it did that was in summer into the fall of two thousand and eighteen and had a twenty plus percent return almost in like a straight line over two months over the next few months it dropped forty percent drop. This stock has had multiple thirty plus percent peak to drop decline in the last five years. So the only point I'm making it. I'm not trying and get you out of APP on your broker. I'm not your head familiar for you. I'm just telling you that this stock is the biggest. One of the world has a tendency to lose a third to forty percent of its value. Every couple of years and it usually happens after you have a parabolic move like

"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.

"Talk about andrew luck. The world was a twitter and that's a pun intended on saturday night when news came out that andrew lock had retired <hes> <hes> and then of course later he did that same evening. It was a shock to the system. Certainly you have andrew retiring. That is a massive story korea. You know i like everyone had look at adam. Schefter make sure it was one of not one of those fake tweets and it wasn't and it was true. <hes> my immediate action was like everyone else. Why can't believe it. He's only in the league seven years. He's still young. How bad is the injury. What's going on with this injury and then of course just reading all the blowback on twitter one of the worst things about twitter israelis interpersonal sniping within your time line. I didn't need that. I mean again. Everyone's kinda waiting to pounce weather whether it was doug gablers someone else i disagree with those guys too but i'm not gonna why ruin and ruins too strong a word but y mar a big moment in sports with all the sniping i mean let's talk about the moment and the magnitude of it and as you know it'd be one of those where where you win won't moments in thinking about sports stories and then of course he goes off the field booing. I don't give too much on the booing because some knuckleheads probably drunk. I didn't hear a ton booing <unk>. You know your your few yard birds that are always around at the end of games wants to get in fights in parking lots in alcohol's involved etc but but i just didn't like the personal sniping but anyway here's the story so it took me a while. I was actually in new york had gone to a funeral in boston for colleague. Don banks sl colleague beautiful service overlooking fenway park infantry park overlooking field grave remembrances from peter king in another in a good don banks was just we lost a really good one there to new york so my son had dinner and then komo <unk> planes trains and automobiles so on the train home i saw the news and what news it was you know but you start thinking about in processing zing in an here's some thoughts on andrew number one. I don't know where to start. I'll start here. My name is andrew through. I went to stanford and i'm a bit of an odd duck and so you know those. Things are all the same and why say i'm not duck. Doc is i never have hopefully and never will let sports what i do. Define me and you know oh. I think that was a big part of me. Leaving the packers now got it was mutual you know they wanted to understand me a little better in new that my heart wasn't in it and said that i had a nice run it was time i agree so i walked away and i've never looked back on being the n._f._l. Life is a lot fuller in my mind now again. Everyone's personal. Life is fuller without the n._f._l. Being a dominant part of your life it's part of my life absolutely now now and talk about it all the time but it's mostly on my terms. It's my terms what i write what i talk when i say liberated in terms of what i say <hes> you know i'm not with a team anymore. So my terms andrew luck. You know. I was at stanford. <hes> first of all. This is a guy i who was going to be the number one pick in two thousand eleven draft number one pick any state. I don't think we made a big as big a deal that is we would now as we would anytime why he chose to stay at palo alto and stanford rather than go to the n._f._l. Which would have been charlotte and the carolina panthers. That's what he chose. He reminded me of my former client. Ricky williams who had filled out the paperwork was all set to come out in the draft in nineteen ninety eight and he decides last minute. I was ready to turn in the paperwork. He's an agnus dei and i said you're gonna stay next million dollar. Fee drop to the ground and i'm like what he said yeah because here's the deal next year. I gotta go but this year. I'm gonna be drafted by saint louis or chicago and that was of course you know who's take running back first top five picks and he's like now yeah. I don't go there. I can stay austin university of texas. Why would i leave austin to go to one of those places aces if i don't have to and of course i talked to other financial in the risk of injury and all those things and he said yeah yeah yeah. We'll get insurance policy. So he stayed d- end people thought he was crazy or maybe people didn't know about it like i did. This guy stayed. No-one pony was crazy but it didn't get a big mentioned action then because i don't know why so he stays end you know what can happen injury wise but he was of course the number one pick next year. Now one tentacle of this is that he stay turned down the number one pick. I spoke at stanford on alumni weekend that year eleven two thousand eleven a no what was so crazy because i met the student union never forget this. I look over in the corner. There's a kid slumped over his computer eating whatever i think he was eating pizza actually and books and calculators and papers were a straughn stroz that the word stone all all over the best the table the dining table and i move closer didn't want to interrupt but move closer to see who that was because i thought it was it was andrew luck okay. This was the presumptive number-one. Pick the next draft the presumptive number one picking the last draft and potential potential heisman trophy winner and was playing the homecoming game. I believe in two c._l._a. The next day god that's sandra luck. Andrew luck never used a smartphone think about that in this day and age whatever it was flip phone whatever andrew luck didn't in use a traditional agent never u._c._l._a. Rosenhaus joel siegal or octagon or any of the big big name same agents now his uncle was agent that was uncle has since joined a big firm wasserman but not before alkyl local negotiators rookie deal number one overall pick and the big extension a few years ago is uncle his uncle's mother's brother so and andrew luck never appeared comfortable with the trappings of being a football player. I mean people talk about him. Sort of saying good job when <hes> when people sacked him you know some some quarterbacks have said that but it was a little more with andrew luck he just had in a different mentality and i've know people at stanford the nome and this is all this is that the message is i've been getting these past few days and i know quarterbacks that have worked with them like my affront hasselback of course who thought the world of him and how he would go over every minutia all the time and he was work for backup quarterback. The backup quarterback job is to support the starter and that's work with henry luck. You gotta know that <hes> listen. He's a different guy and so what i'm saying is when you step back and look at it at all then. You're feeling like okay. It's certainly not expected affected news but maybe it's not as striking shocking astonishing eye-popping mind-blowing news as everyone thinks it should be our everyone wounds thinks it is this is andrew luck. He's different different is not bad. He's a nerd nerd is not bad. Okay okay. I've known this kid since he was a toddler oliver. Luck who's now commissioner of the x._f._l. And no andrew it's not going to the x._f._l. Was is a gentleman alvarez's gentlemen to the franken galaxy. When i was general manager of the barcelona dragons this is back in nineteen ninety one to andrew look was. I don't know how old then was. He twenty nine now so he was just born was a baby so you know i remember as a baby. <hes> known that long now known my just said som- as a baby way back in the day and i know oliver well overnight speak together on my talk regularly never about andrew <hes> rarely just what's going on with them but yeah i. I'm not shocked anymore. By this news. Especially we talked with the cycle of pain gene and i know people talk about pains and natural part of football but it doesn't have to be you can step off the train and people talk about this fascinating early retirement early retirement well. I think early retirement like chris borland one year. This guy spent seven years in pain. Seven years is over twice the average n._f._l. Career so i you know i guess early retirement in we'll talk about the money in a second but yeah i mean the sandra look thing is big news because you're seeing something here you don't see people the potentially the top of the game absent injury walking away oy the absent injuries a big part of this but my point is gonna bring it back to me. Since i left the packers i am not made anywhere near that salary even cobbling together salaries from villanova salary from sports illustrated salary from e._s._p._n. Salary from podcasts salary from <hes> now vein associates now getting closer but my life is so much fuller. My life is so much fuller. The n._f._l. Is all consuming even though it's only twenty games a year. It's all consuming so i get it now. An andrew luck is is going to one hundred percent one hundred percent going to lead fuller life and i can say pretty certain he's going to be happy an unhappier right happy earlier than he was as quarterback of the colts as one of the best players went healthy in the n._f._l. I see it. Didn't i see a guy thirsty as book club. He's gonna travel gonna read. He's gonna live a full. Life is going to have children with his new wife. Wow okay ah i get. He'll help out his father word can with the x._f._l. May be go to some camps. Teach the quarterbacks talk to him. Whatever but listen. I get it now and this might be a different. Take on andrew lock. I don't know if it is or not but i get it. This guy's different in a good way. This cousin nerd in a good way. This guy will enjoy live okay did team aspect of this one part of it it is i was involved with the maybe the best transition from franchise quarterbacks that a fan base could ever ask for or front office from far too rodgers now. There were bumps along the way. I've documented many times in even taking aaron was a a disaster getting call getting booed by fans getting calls from both sides three years of wandering on one side. If if errands ever gonna play on the other side of brett's contestants live with his future replacement. It's no fun all those kinds of things but we made it and that transition happened in another way i'd say number two on that list has to be peyton manning andrew luck now that happened through fortune or misfortune three next surgeries to peyton manning <hes> <hes> in no small part due to that the colts end up with the worst record in football in the number one pick and they have a grooved path to andrew lock and peyton manning is not only not sort of shepherded like brett farr. He's cut he's cut ends up on denver's we know but wow so they grew the pets andrew luck and you have that transition one of the biggest in sports history if not number one or two along with the packers so that ends that ends now they go to jacoby percent. We'll see how good he is. He's not injured luck of course he's my neighbor left so we can. I put that in that but for whatever years peyton manning <hes>. I don't know twenty seven years of andrew luck. I know injury-marred they they had that transition packers are already up to what sixteen afar and twelve of rogers thirteen rogers so you know that's we're into to getting towards two generations right there again so the colts had that luck pardon the pun and now that luck luck has run out. Pardon the pun again okay before we leave. This ran about luck. There's so many areas just probably missing some but we gotta talk about the money and we don't know the money. I'm efforting to find out about the money yes. The colts could have gone after <unk> amortized parade bonus us what that means is. Luck got a huge bonus of course with his extension. It's campuses whatever it was and they did a renegotiation to. It's always parade over a future years. Luck had many futures left in theory. According to football law the colts could have gone after that in what has been reported they will not he will keep already earned already paid of course his signing bonus and renegotiate bonus from his previous contracts. That's a massive win for luck that the colts don't go after that because then it'll be grievance like barry sanders like matron and they have to win the money back and that to get the money back in the whole thing the other part of it is there were twelve million dollars roster bonus for this year. Supposedly have paid earlier half paid to come tom now again. We're not certain what the settlement is. We know that six million that's been paid. I don't think he's paying back question is is he going to receive the next six months. That's we'll find out. He's also got nine months salary this year. Now you could say well of course. He's not getting that so you know again. He's hurt but if he's honored serve injured it really be hard for him to collect that so the money that say that that is is not owed to luck is a lot here. I'm sorry that is not the culture not gonna go. After from lock is a lot of money. It's a win for look doc. Now we can say well look could've stayed on i r but then he's only making the nine million that is due this year and just sort of rehab this year but the nine million is less.
"brandt" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt
"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.
