"Yes. A Hall of Fame quarterback? You know, in his retirement, you know, facing that kind of penalty. And that will be a gigantic story for you. I don't think you'll end up in jail, but I think, you know, worm his way out of it probably, but I mean, he clearly, listen, I mean, he did something there that is heinous. There's no, I don't think there's any disputing that at this point. So. That's a bad note to wrap it up on. Let's wrap it up, we should wrap it up on something, I don't know. Oh, I hear something. I'll do this. I heard the most insane take I think I've heard in a long time yesterday. Okay. And it came from Peter king. Who was on, who was on Chris mad dog Russo SiriusXM show. Not who I thought you were going to say. I know. And he said, well, he destroyed, he destroyed Ken Dorsey for flipping out in the press box after the bills lost. And said that if he does it again, the bill should send them to anger management. No. He said that. A football coach? He's throwing things after a loss. 40 plus years of covering pro football. You can see football coaches get it angry. Said he acted like a child, can't have a coach act that way, can't have a coach behave that way, and if he does it again, the bill should send them to anger management. We're doing. There's going to be a lot of coaches and anger management next week. Like, the team just lost and he threw some stuff. I think that's normal. Wasn't the Florida coach, Billy named Peter, who was on the field and holding him back the other day. Is that really football coaches? I was driving when I heard that take, listening to the show. And I wanted to pull over and tweet about it. But then I'm like, I don't want to tweet about it because then people take Peter king and then it becomes a thing that I'm just saying that was one of the wildest takes I've ever heard in my life. The funniest part of that clip was not the throwing stuff. It was the person who put the hand over the camera because they realized he was on camera. Since when throwing things are 5 seconds, oh, excuse me. This is a private moment of anger. You're in the coordinator box. Since when are we not allowed to see coaches be angry or covering up coaches tirades? We live for coaches tirades. What are we doing? It was a great piece of video. Yeah. It's like Tom throwing the tablet. Same thing. Oh, anger management for Tom Brady. Tom. Throw in a lot of tablets, right? We don't know. I'm glad I got to get that out of my system.

"It all we care about is Sunday Night Monday night Thursday night and it's Sunday four 25 is still the sweet spot. People forget. You know, I think I probably do the same thing because of course we're taking an announcers and all this stuff, but yeah, I turned that on on Sunday afternoon, one 25 here in the West Coast and I was like, man, this is great. This game looks great. It looks great. It's a huge matchup, two great quarter by the way. This is the game I want to watch, you know? But I was like, this is awesome. This is football. This is NFC. This is football to me. Yep. And I got 26.9 million for it. I read a little bit before we started taping. It sounds like live golf is going to buy airtime on FS1. I've said on this podcast and written many times that lives only hope was FS1, because CBS and ABC and NBC ESPN are all in bed with the PGA. And fox will do anything. They have no standards, so they'll get in bed with anyone. So this obviously makes total sense. How much do you think this helps live that they'll be on FS1? Do you expect people to tune in? I guess it takes a box that they're on TV rather than you and I watching it on Facebook Live. That's not happening. But I mean, when we have bet, I was trying to think about this this morning. We have bet that somebody would have said yes to them without them having to pay for airtime, like a Wilford Brimley, commercial. We'll forget getting some shrapnel. I never would have expected. Right. No, I never, ever would have expected CBS ESPN NBC to do anything with Liv because they're not going to do that to their partner. But somebody somewhere. Well, so it came out a couple it was reported recently, Daniel rappaport from barstool. He said, Apple was out. Once I saw Apple was out, then I was like, okay, if they can't even get the streaming services on board? Yeah. There's a problem. Because the streaming services need any content they could possibly get. So once Amazon and Apple were out, that's when I was like, um, they are really screwed because there's no other network that would do it except for Fox.

"Is getting people to understand the game's on Amazon only. There's no other way to watch it unless you're in a local market, which I had some more confusion to it. I actually think now though, I looked at it, the schedule for Thursday Night Football might be a problem. I mean, they have a great game this week with the dolphins and Bengals, and I'm glad Allen Kirk get that. That's a good game. But then they have colts Broncos, which is not great based on what we've seen from them. And then the week after that is commanders bears. So I think the scheduling, they get a good game, they get a ravens bucks game week 8. So that's a little bit of a nice bounce back. But then after that, it's eagles Texans. So, and then falcons Panthers. The schedule is going to be a problem, I think, for Thursday night. It's a good reminder that all the networks had Thursday football. And they all went, you know what? We don't want this anymore. We just don't want this anymore. And I remember talking to the Monday night guys before the Monday night package got better. Their biggest gripe was not that the game wouldn't be an a game because a lot of times you're not going to get it. But it would be just a random match up that would have no storyline to it. Eagles, Texans. What are you doing there? I mean, the eagles might be great this year, so that's cool, but it's just no storytelling to that game at all. Right. That's not a thing. It's like money and I football remember a couple years ago when the schedule was still really bad. They get the Steelers. Oh, that's good. Steelers are big audience, but it'd be steelers Jaguars and be like, what do we do with this? Yeah. Not division. It's just not that there's nothing here, you know? I was surprised because the rating for the opening game on Amazon chiefs charges was 13 million. And then the next week for steelers browns was 11 million. And I didn't think the drop would be that much, only because now you have two or one terrible quarterback in trubisky and one mediocre quarterback in Brissette, which is a big fallout from mahomes and Herbert obviously. But I thought the browns and steelers, those markets, those fans would not have as big a drop off because nobody cares about the Chargers across the country and they have no fan base, and week one. But they still lost 2 million viewers, and I don't know if it's because, you know, the quality of the game, the quality of the quarterbacks, I thought it was interesting that they would drop 2 million from week one a week two to week three, which the first week was week two. Or is it something we've seen with TV shows forever where people are super curious to tune in week one because it's new? And it's Amazon and it's different so they have an experience and then week two, it's a football game. And they're sort of judging by the quality of the game. I think this week is fascinating in terms of a rating for Amazon. Because they have good team, good quarterbacks, burrow to dolphins three and O surprisingly good matchup.

We dissect the biggest stories in pop culture and of course, we give you our unfiltered sports opinions, so listen to us every Wednesday wherever you get your podcasts. A little bit more on general Burgess here who apparently is running the auburn athletic department. General Burgess is also connected to Jimmy rain, who is the president of the great southern wood company. That's yellowwood for those who don't speak the parlance of auburn football. And in fact, in July of 2020, general Burgess, he's a retired lieutenant general. In the U.S. Army, filled the vacant seat on the great southern wood board of pat die, following coach dies, death. Let's get back to the calls. And Daryl is up next. Good afternoon. Paul. Why are these boosters still like they should have so much control over these football programs? Especially at Albert, I don't think I don't understand. I'm not only pumping a bunch of money in there, but I mean, would you not agree? You gotta let this guy do his job. Would you agree with that? Well, that's the way you're supposed to do it. That keeps you out of trouble with the NCAA and other organizations. But I guess that has not worked for auburn. Has never more problem. It kind of like always been like that? Yeah, I mean, think about some of the people that auburn has fired three coaches who have been in a national championship contention. They fired chiswick who won the championship. They fired malignant who played for it, and they fired Tommy tuberville, who was undefeated. In 2004. Let me ask you this. This guy said he has only one plan, right? There is no plan B could it be. Could it be that coming from all the state, he had a, I mean, what he's trying to implement at auburn, I'm just going to tell like he is, okay? He's the athletic ability is there, but to be able to retain and be able to do these complex schemes that you probably want to put into place. The players just say picking it up. I think it's even more than that. And I've heard this from people down there. I think he I think he is. I think harshin has had a challenging time relating to athletes from a different part of the country. And you can figure that out any way you want. But southern football players are different than those who play in North Dakota. I heard Kirby said he has bored all the time, okay? He said that differs in this thing, the 2021 team and past and past teams is that he had to dumb down the playbook. He was his ag words. He said, we had to dumb down the playbook and then it be more wrapped around our athletic ability than run all these complaints schemes because they just wouldn't get it. So we've done it down and of course we've got the result we were looking for. I was wondering, maybe coming from ballsy, I was wondering maybe if that's what it is. I think there's a lot of things there. Bow Nick said, I'm out of here, the coaching carousel. I think I don't care what the school does with him. I mean, they can fire him or not. I just think auburn is coming off looking bad in the way this is going down. And they're trying to be transparent, but they're frankly not being transparent with these bogus statements. They keep releasing. Will he survive? No, no, I don't think so. You know what he'll be the coaches coming up here for all the no. Wow, man, I thought you know what, I might be all the least give you guys go by a year one. Y'all at least give another year to do his job. Let him do his job. Say another way, but then do his job and just go from there. But if they get rid of it, they might just go on backwards and my opinion for Albert. See you all. Well, it really, I would say, you can't put a judgment on this until you see where they're going next. And they have dumbed down the expectations right now, or they could bring in Bozo the Clown. And he would probably appear to be better than this. Dave is up next. Dave, you're on the air, go ahead. Paul good afternoon. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. I just wanted to share just some context. I'm not an auburn fan. So I'm not someone's got something in the game on this, but often heard a statement that stuck with me throughout my career. Wise men learned from their own mistakes. Wiser man learned from the mistakes of others. And if you look at southern cows, Texas, Nebraska, Miami, recently, Tennessee, and not so long ago, even Alabama. When you are the one consistent is the power brokers with the money, but you see these schools, they change presidents. They go through athletic directors. They change their coaches and regardless of how you fall on debating this particular case with..

"Have you heard all that this week? How did he get to eastern Washington? How do you become one of the best wide receivers in the league? That's a great story. But do you always hear that Cooper cups, dad played in the NFL? And the Cooper cups granddad played in the NFL as a member of the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame. Again, that doesn't diminish it because he's awesome. And he earns everything he's gotten. But it's part of the context. And if we're taking out the context, I don't think we're really telling the story right. You haven't mentioned an ESPN commentator. And I will tell you this, Brian, I sat about two years ago with someone in his office overlooking the east river and about 30 minutes contract was up and he had not been renewed yet. And I thought this guy was maybe about to be unemployed and it turned out he ended up making $12 million a year and is the biggest name of ESPN, but he was telling me the same story. Steven Smith. I'm this poor guy. I mean, anybody respect him. He doesn't get his too. But I think that's just part of the nature of all of us, in some ways, isn't it? It's Michael Jordan, right? Michael Jordan, you know, down to the end, was talking about that coach who wouldn't put him on the varsity team. And again, I don't fault anybody for using stories like that to maintain an edge. But I think when we're media members, we owe it to the audience to tell them the correct story. And to put everything in context, you can take that story in context and tell a broader story about an athlete or a coach whoever it is. Let me get your thoughts on the Super Bowl for a second while we have you because Joe burrow is a pretty good story. He only won the Heisman was the number one pick, but we've been down that road, but just being out there in LA, watching this circus unfold in a city that is not exactly short on celebrities. What does this week look like as you peer ahead? It's very interesting in Los Angeles because a lot of people don't know this, but Los Angeles is a college football city. You know, and I think when I've talked to people before about what do people in LA read when they're reading the newspaper website, it's really the LA the Lakers and Dodgers and numbers one and two. And then USC is number three. And if you're here on a Saturday, it is a big time college football city in the fall. And the rams by virtue of having moved away for 20 plus years really don't register all that much. You know, I've seen a lot more U.S. new jerseys that I've seen Cooper Cup and Matt Stafford jerseys over the last year. So it's certainly exciting. I think the city is embracing the rams again. But they are far down the power rankings of the teams this town really cares about. And I think that's kind of interesting. Finally, you have a home team Super Bowl again for the second straight year. And but it's with a team that LA is still kind of embracing re embracing after so many years. It probably won't start the glitterati from showing up though, will it? No, absolutely not, especially here on radio road Paul because I know all those sports radio hosts are so easy. They're such a big so put them on and let them plug whatever product they plug in, you know, after doing ten minutes of interview. Yeah, I was about to tell you to dig deep in that. I'm sure for those who miss brought a couple of years ago mentioned this program and a piece on the grief counselors of COVID. And I don't know how many of those radio interviews you're going to have to listen to. I guess all you have to do is walk up and down, but this might be the worst example of our business on an annual basis, isn't it? Yeah, but for a media reporter like baseball, this is my Super Bowl. Not the Super Bowl this right here is my Super Bowl. All these media people, oh my gosh, it's amazing. I know you did something with Al Michaels the other day. He is doing we think his final Super Bowl. It's just a whole idea of where this game has gone and the fact that it coincides with the rather sparsely watched Winter Olympics from Beijing. It really does. You know, I was looking up some Al Michael stuff. I'm Michael started doing the prime time NFL game of the week in 1986, which was in Monday Night Football. And a game from the 1986 World Series ran against Monday Night Football and crushed it in the rails. Now that tells you how long ago L Michaels has been calling football that a World Series game could actually interfere with our NFL fandom, even for one night. What happened anymore? But yeah, you know, back in those days, that was the old ABC Jim McKay, Olympics days that was such a thing. And now we're talking about does anybody watch the Winter Olympics as anybody plugged in or are we just reading Joe burrow interviews and Super Bowl hypo league? I'm just wondering why Mike Tariq had to go to Beijing to sit in a in a studio with a roaring fire that he could have found back in Connecticut, but I'm glad he's getting the frequent flyer miles. We've got to get the daylight ball. You know that. Of course. As a journalist, you just identified the secret of every grizzled veteran of scribe, just show up so you can put the dateline about where you are. Brian, so great to see you. Enjoy mediae and I can't wait to read what's next for me. You're one of my favorite writers in the world. Thank you so much. Pray for me, please. Just trying to survive. Be careful around those radio guys. Brian Curtis live from radio row. And yes, the Super Bowl is Sunday..

"A break from the movement to find a new coach at auburn for just a second and head out to LA where the Super Bowl is going on and we're one of our favorite guests. Brian Curtis, the editor of the ringer joining us. He's just written a fantastic piece saying the doubters are running up the score and he makes a point in this that everyone's an underdog all of a sudden. Remember we were talking about that with Alabama Bryce young's feeling disrespected and so is everyone else on that team. And everybody's an underdog in the Super Bowl and everybody's an underdog and everything Brian, thank you very much for joining us. I mean, I couldn't stop laughing reading this because there aren't any big bad wolves anymore. We're all just little kids trying to slay the giant. How are you doing and what's going on out in LA, anything happening out there? Well, I'm on radio row here so I'm among your kind Paul today, all these sports radio hosts of the universe. I should probably be keeping my distance here. But yeah, I'm really glad you mentioned Bryce young. I mean, that was the one that really got me for this one. Because I'm thinking a wait a second, he's saying all these schools and college football coaches didn't want to recruit me when I was in high school. And then I looked it up and one of the recruiting services said he was the 6th highest ranked quarterback recruit. They had ever scouted. Behind only guys like Trevor Lawrence and Vince Young and guys like that. I'm saying, wait a second. If that's nobody recruited me, this story has really gone to a strange place and maybe we shouldn't be repeating this as much as we do. And we all love to. And I don't want to crack on my colleagues up and down the TV dial, but TV people are the worst because every story, Tom Brady was an underdog because he was what picked in the 6 round or whatever it was. We all love to do that. I can spend a half an hour telling you how I've been disrespected my whole life and still am. But the point being, why are we also gullible or is it just such a great story of someone wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth? Well, I think we all love to fit people into boxes, especially a sports writers. You know, we have like three or four profiles we like to write and we try to fit the athletes into them, even when they're not fit when they don't fit. Tom Brady is a great one. You know, he said before, I wasn't really recruited coming out of high school. Tom Brady played for the 1997 national champion, Michigan wolverines. So you can't be that lightly recruited also play for the national champs. And I'll tell you one thing I think doesn't form this call is college players are really hard to write about. And they're really hard to get your mind around because these guys are 18, 20, 22 years old. They're young, they're somewhat unformed, or at least many of them are. And so we're looking for something to say. And often what we wind up saying is the recruiters overlooked him. Remember Joe burrow, Nebraska wouldn't offer him a scholarship. What is they did offer him a scholarship? So it wasn't that overlooked. And we just write the same story every time. Well, is it just the state of journalism Brian? I know that's one of your favorite subjects. Journalism and broadcasting. But we are back in the day and I far outdate you. I mean, you would turn something like that in and the editor would throw you out of his office saying, I'm not printing that. Nowadays, there's no such thing as an editor, is there? Well, I know you're an editor, but that's beside the point. Well, we do have editors some of us were lucky to have him. No, I think so. I mean, I think television is part of it, Paul definitely, just in terms of getting heartwarming stories onto the screen. But look, I just think it's incumbent on all of us writers as it always has been to dig deeper. And to think like, what's a more sophisticated way to tell this story? You know, maybe somebody was overlooked by a recruiter or a draft expert or a coach. But that doesn't mean it's necessarily the defining event in their life. That doesn't mean necessarily. This should be the first paragraph of the story we write, or the first sound bite on the TV thing we do. Maybe there's another way to tell a story and it's just about us working harder. We spend a lot of time here, as you know, you want to know why you've been forced into listening to this show because of your work. And will Anderson junior who is one of the best players in college football this year, tried to sell us several times on Alabama's being disrespected. Alabama is an underdog, and I'm thinking they started the season ranked number one in the country. On the final day of the season, they were ranked number one in the country. But is it coaches and is it sports psychologists who try to drive all this into the player's heads? Well, we all try to tell ourselves as you said that we're underdogs and we're disrespected. I know when I'm trying to finish a piece and I bet you know back in the day when you were trying to grind out a column that you thought of that one editor in your life who had disrespected you and you could picture his face, oh man, I'm gonna show him by writing this lead in this kicker on this column. But you know what? Just because we tell that story to ourselves, that doesn't mean it's the story of us. And I would say the same thing about Alabama or any of these athletes. Just because that's what they're telling themselves to get up for a game against Georgia to get through another session in the weight room. That's not necessarily the story sports writers and sports media people should be telling about. But in your patient, you mentioned Jamar chase, you mentioned Steph Curry. Now, in fairness, Steph Curry, he's got a legitimate story to tell. A lot of people did not want him, but he is a rarity, though, among the greats of all time. Yeah, and he looks Steph Curry is him coming out of Davidson and becoming one of the greatest NBA players of all time. I wouldn't want to minimize that at all. But it's very relevant to the Steph Curry story that his dad played 16 years in the NBA. Cooper Cooper come, by the way, is another one..

So that your number one guy does not get into a negotiation where you have no alternative but to sign the number one guy at a huge giant for you mean when they gave romo all this money and you can see that you're gonna see fox's doing it right this year going a different direction with the second with a second crew wide said it's been a two year plan right waiting for waiting for olsen and yeah you have this now with nbc getting brees. Let's say they're not legislate making breezy dame guy right and getting him getting him ready. You want that number two guy. I think you want forget the succession plan. You want a really good number two guy. Just in case right troy aikman decides to go off and be a gm as he's hinted that he might wanna do at some point. You want to have somebody ready to go richer not desperate and casting around and be like what do we do now so that to me should be the lesson. You're getting ready. But it doesn't mean you but that's also in fairness that's hard to do because if you have a really good number two who can be another one who can be a number one another networks gonna plunk him somewhere along the way to keep the but that's like a backup quarterback in football. That happens all the time in football on the go. Get another backup quarterback. You get somebody else reading like. I wonder since i mentioned earlier. Like i wonder how long. Cbs can keep i-in eagle in the fall designs and number one guy but gymnastics always going to be at cbs. But is it going to be number one in basketball and so in other go right. You don't think there's there's not that many jobs right right. That's true we're talking one. Two three four five with amazon is five number one. Nfl jobs right. You know it's kind of like the supreme court like you don't they. Don't open up all that off and those guys. Algae those guys don't leave..

"The monday night football scenario now at the alternate broadcasts peyton and eli Someone reported yesterday believe or the day before. The schefter is a possibility to be a host with those two. Wouldn't you want someone with a little more personality to be there with peyton and eli or or new york. Somebody who's more of a facilitator who's well. I think you'd want someone who could banter with them. Like i'm thinking like obviously he works for another networks. This couldn't happen but like an iron eagle. Yeah who you know not someone who's just a dry reporter somebody. I guess we have to kind of see what the show is you know. Do you want somebody who's who's kind of setting them up like. Oh hey here's a big play. Watch this you know while we're talking to right in the in the part of this right that they bring on interviewees. Hey wait wait wait. Here's a big play. We need to do to say something about this is so i guess i want to know what the show is. Yeah i just thought that the person who would be the perfect host for that show. Okay can remain. Oh living now. Sorry about that whole thing. Sorry about the sixty one percent pay cut but we're paying eli and peyton. God knows how much you actually actually would would be good at that. Yeah that would be a good spot for him. I still find the whole thing very instant because as long as limited twitter after it happened people's. Espn finally got their whitewell. Peyton manning and i don't know they they kind of did but they didn't get him as an announcer who they're sending on the road. Seventeen weeks a year and they're producing stuff. They became the co-producer of peyton manning. Show which is a different thing and it's probably closer to payton's places than it is like what you know. Chris collins were this doing on. Nbc and will only be airing ten out of seventeen weeks. Yeah so it's like you got him in this way of you know this very new. I think there's this whole class of athletes now and this probably always a case right because a super superstars charles berkeley did not always go to television after they retired. But there's a group of ethics that looks at. Espn is like. Oh that's i don't want to work for them necessarily but that's a place where i could take the show that i come up with an bel air. It essentially or co produce it with me right in all kind of do whatever i want on there. That's actually very different thing. then hiring. Somebody isn't announced right. I couldn't agree with you..

"Made for advertisers It may be made for producers because it's got all these clips going on and all this other stuff in your whirling around us. Up is not not for people watching tv so like you said to. If you're gonna do that listen your espn. You've paid and astronomical amount for the nba. You wanna make your money back. You want to make halftime nothing about commercials. Okay do you want your. Espn knowns going to not watch the game. why do you have for people on there. That's what i mean. Maybe it's what if it were maria and jalen and jalen at one point right. Leave us with one thing. I'd rather him have more than let's see thirty seconds tunnel but just just tell me like i remember when charles barkley with the bucks he had that one thing like the bucks are really dumb. But they're going to win the nba. Title he came back and had that point halftime. I haven't forgotten that right. I forgot everything that was on. Espn within ten seconds. Somebody center right but even the post game where they do have time nothing ever resonates. I mean i feel like every time. Charles kenny shocker. On after a game there's something comes out of it. I mean you'll you'll have charles after game like i can't believe america sat through that game. It was terrible like you know is penn would be like a code red if someone went on the air and said that on there i mean i think a lot of it is the mba. The that espn espn tnt. Both partners the nba but draws will say what everyone's whereas i guess espn they don't ever want to say anything negative about the leak which doesn't help in terms of getting some now not in the charles way anyway. That's right you know. Yeah and it's just you can tell i remember talking to the the inside the nba crew. They were in la right when the whole hong kong china thing happened and they said this big discussion on the air and it wasn't scripted. They didn't even rehearse it mean about like the most the trickiest topic for somebody who is has a rights relationship with the nba to talk about it and they just went out there and did it and ernie was like no. We didn't. We didn't even talk about what we were going to say with. Espn no but you can just and of course you're not going to do that every night. Something that heavy. But you can tell when it's rehearsed and canned and you can tell when it's people talking to each other and having an actual conversation and there's no viewer that likes the first thing but at the second. It is amazing for all their success. I mean they basically run. Every sport in america like they have not been able to get one good. Mba studio show going. I mean from the days of magic was there and then the it's it's pretty amazing. They have a bit. And i do wonder if i wonder if it's a little unfair just from that. Like no matter who they put on there are always going to be compared to tnt..

This is nice. You know. I i got i got i got it. I saw the big. I saw the big gymnastics and swimming moments and industry. That's how i've considered my producer tells me i.

So named from what i've heard though what you just said you watch the prime time regular. Mb see that's where the ratings have taken a big hit which again to me makes sense. It's an old fashioned idea. Right there were all right out at eight o'clock right and watch a host. Take us through a day in the olympics including results. That have already happened that are accessible elsewhere. Yes now i will say one of the greatest things to happen because of all this though is did you see the tweet from jaanus yesterday. I don't think i did okay. So obviously jaanus is like the biggest superstar in the world right now just went an nba title. Got his fifty piece. At chick-fil-a goes on twitter and asks what channel i assume the basketball game is on so right right off the bat. I love that you know you.

They are pleasantly mediocre right. Now they're watchable. That's exactly that's a change. Yeah last night's game so much but mostly they're watchable. I should have had. I should have had you on early in the pandemic because it did seem like early in the pandemic. Everyone started watching the sopranos. And we know you're the sopranos aficionado. But we'll talk about the sopranos a little later. full disclosure. We're taping this monday afternoon. You normally i tape on tuesdays or wednesdays but allen wanted people earlier because he's getting his second covid vaccine shot on tuesday so i think that's tremendous and i just my dad. Got his second shot he had madonna. Everyone said you're going to be sick. The second shot my dad is in his seventies totally after a second shot in fact it is on her more after his first shot which is bizarre so nothing but a good vibes for you. There and glade. I hope i can follow in your father's footsteps but i've i've sort of moved everything in my week around under the assumption that i may just be curled up into a ball for a couple of days. It's funny most people want to know if they have an illness. That's not serious. I'm not trying to save. People want to get sick but the people who people who work everyday at their jobs. You know like a two day mini illness so they can sit in bed and watch. Tv all day is sort of such a dream for them but you watch tv for a living so when you're sick like sitting in bed and watching tv all day. Do anything view. Or i feel like if. I'm even in the position to be watching anything. It might be a movie. But more likely i'll just like you know. Have a book or something. If i'm too sick to work like i said this february is the dead time for sports until sort of march madness gets going so i think people are looking for things to watch so who better than to discuss that with then you and wheels of the golden.

"The nfl obviously brett and brent was involved in all of it hosting or studio or play-by-play so But i would gather that brent thought he was more valuable than cbs. And that's why they couldn't renew. I mean there's brent sort of has an ego i guess would be sort of the way to put it. Well he wanted to do everything and they. They came out he and his his giant which which was his brother. Another very interesting feature of the story they wanted to work. I mean prince thing was. I want to be on television and when i was thinking by the way. You're right we are old and this is what our parents sounded like when they talk about rock and roll had to their nineteen sixty five. But you kind of had to be there in one thousand nine hundred ninety understand this because he did he had the same job. Generally speaking is nancy joe now but he was just all over the place he was every was almost like a cable news anchor when you turn on their on at noon and there are at three. Am and they're on their primetime show. And you're like when is that guide not on the air. That was sort of brent in the eighties doing sports networks so much bigger jimmy right in one thousand nine hundred eighty that works at ninety percent of the primetime three channels had ninety percent right though. If you were big in the eighties you were just bigger than anybody now. But yet to go to your to your question yeah. He wanted to do everything you wanted to. The masters wanted to the. Us open irit. He would always renegotiate his contract and he would get more stuff so he became lead college football guy for a time. He became lead college basketball guy which he was still doing at the end and he wanted to work and i think. Cbs looked at it. And said we've got young. People like greg gumbel at that point jim nance and we just want to break this up because when somebody does everything when somebody makes a ton of money like that they get really really powerful and they become you know hard. Excuse me hard to control. And that that's i think from what we can tell if you look at it and i've talked to people from that era who were at the network around that that is really what it was you know. Brett set himself i they. They thought i got too big for my britches and they wanted to take me down. Yeah and you know i. It's hard to it's hard to imagine. Cbs pulling that trigger And i'm thinking about something else in that article when you talk about. Just an astonishing where he talking about nance at once romo money which is seventeen and a half million musburger peaked. At what three or four million with with cbs. And at the time that was a fortune. Yeah that was an absolute fortune. Announcers were making that kind of money in the seventies and he has.

"High Alexander Functions. Tennis podcast thank you great to have you on board are I. Came across of the Alexander Voskan Tennis University as I saw on bags around some tournaments. I saw some coaches walking around two bags. I'd never heard of it before and I was always curious so I went off and did some research and this was last year so I've been falling ever since I've posted some your videos. I have you on our academy our top academy lists so it's great to finally speak to you. Thanks for that like just going to your resume. So you've worked with some cray players to pass speed caregiver meltzer Haas Bryan Curtis and even. Now you're working with some great players on especially let's say on the juniors who working with Yoenis four Tek who won grand slams last year such a great junior strokes are amazing anytime we posted on functional tennis. It's really amazing on. You're also working with a couple of the players on the Belgium Davis Cup team lower still lower Bella Mons on. Yeah few more. You're doing you're busy not me. We are a team here. So it's it's not me. We're working together with a couple of professionals here. So tennis coaches fitness coaches therapists. It's always a team effort here. Tell me cut me. Where's IT based in Germany? We Are Approximately fifteen to twenty minutes from Frankfurt Airport which is in my opinion great location as the International Airport. Gets you anywhere in the world and mostly direct flights? So you're in the center of Europe with Germany and Frankford is the center of or the middle of Germany so it's easy for us too excess anything here in Europe and even long fights I mean everything or usually everything has direct so we save a lot of time. By by this and also frankfort spend my hometown. So I've been I grew up here. I know the area Illinois everything here. So that's why we here. It's great to be in such a central. He'll be juniors playing tennis Europe term and Sir. Itf Tournaments Futures Challenges could hope to be. There's so much going on in Europe and also for the flights as you mentioned but tell me about Your Academy your facility. How many courts you have. What's your setup like? They're always thought of two thousand and ten. I started very very tiny. We had one player and one coach We built this from scratch. We are here working at the Federation. We have four. Indoor rebound ace courts we outdoor rebound escorts and then outdoors. We have also a five day. Courts we have a gym. We have ten rooms to sleep For people that come in for a weekly base now. We have other options for our long-term customers that can save an hour to you house. That is a bit outside of the sites and Ben. We have other apartments as well so everything is basically here on site visit therapy and everything that we need. The restaurant So yeah it's it's not the largest site we can't compare this to the large European academies like more talk no and Ross. We look for very high quality on our courts I think which even that so far I think the small academy the Smaller Academy sorry not too big more look more commercially cutting small and seem to have a better more family atmosphere on something you mentioned. Is You like to build character in the players? You work which can you tell me what you mean by building character with your players. You know if you're getting young people in here. Having a lot of influence has left rights errands media friends other players and so on at the end of the day. I believe that's building a good character and I'm gonNA come back to. That will make them successful people. Nobody can guarantee professional career of them making millions of euros in stuff like this but if they are hot working if they are focused if the discipline if they work hard on reaching their goals if they take a setback if they take a loss get back up on their on their feet and try it again and again and again and again. This kind of character will succeed in life so I think that our number one priority or our number one job is to create personalities that will succeed in life and then they will always be happy that they've been here No matter hulk with a end up in Tennessee great. And how do you do you give me an example? So we set clear rules It's also a lot about talking to the kids making them understand why we do certain things and for ten years. I've been busting my Thoughts to get an atmosphere here where everybody works hard and all the kids that we have now and I'm really happy about this really into getting better so you can always spend your whole day playing computer games. You can spend your whole day going out at night drinking Blah Blah Blah or you generate an atmosphere where everybody works hard and if there's one kid that does work hard the other kids don't want to practice with him because it's it's also for their benefits for their practice so I think that we Getting there that the intensity here is very high that there's a clear plan of how they play and that they really spend time with their game. They're strokes and a half to write a journal of what they've learned throughout the day. They have to visualize nights what they've done and the next steps that are there. We make individual plans for them. We make individual schedules and at the end of the day. You also need to have time for for the if you have fifty players to take care of at the same time. It's a zoo. So our coaches have four to six players that they take care of and I don't think that they can do more so that they have enough time to to talk to the plan to also know what kind of personality they are and what. They're struggling with what they're all right. Now tell me if somebody if I want to apply to come to your Kademi what you look for players that send you emails to say they. WanNa come train with you. What we don't do is we don't sign any contracts through the Internet. We don't do that. We have to meet the player. Find out if it's a fits. We want to see if we really like working with that player and at the other on the other hand the player has to tell. I mean usually. It's the parents that also behind this The player has to say this is where I WANNA be. This is the best place in the world. I don't want to go anywhere else and we can find a way but I I want to very very clear and strong commitment for this and this place is not perfect for everybody. I mean this other academies out there that are doing a fantastic job and Certain personalities will like this here and other personalities will prefer something else through your right if you try and fit everybody in. I think you're structures all over the place. I agree if you WanNa make you happy. You're going to generate a mess. They're going to have strict rules. I mean we are German so if you come one second late for practice your practice is over. It's it just doesn't happen you run for today. Yeah we also worked very early in the morning at seven thirty. We organized in structure. As Germs. Do Things and this is a strength. We are probably the worst dancers and other countries. Show us. How the Party will we? We're good at other things one of my best friends. Fabian is a chairman on definitely knows how to party. I didn't learn. Jeremy travelled a bit so definitely did a stint in the states. I think that's re- picked it up so you start early tomorrow to. What's a typical day so for your? Let's say for your teenagers. There's no real tip of the day because when you run a period as Asian you have weeks where you work really hard. And then you have weeks where you worked less and you regenerate more so we work up to ten sessions a week if the players practice full than they have a Monday and Tuesday where they have two sessions into fitness sessions on Wednesdays. They have Tennis session one session. Thursday Friday again to each Saturdays one tennis and Yoga. That's a tough week here but again we also have other weeks where we watched that the players are doing more mobility or region more stretching more. Physiotherapy it really depends on what's a but the week is planned for them. Take a lot of boxes there. The one thing I know. Is that the coaches care here. They really work hard. Some of them travel twenty to twenty five weeks a year with the players to tournaments. They really care. And that's what I really like Nobody here looks at the clock. All the time and says Lesson is op. I always say don't teach lessons. We coach players and different thing for me. So Time. Watching a bad characteristic. If two people are counting the time I know one player we feature quite a bit in the past two years is Yoenis four tech. He trains with you and he was world number one junior last year. One Grand Slams. How long has he been trained in? What you almost six years now. At that time we didn't really have a junior program and he was recommended to us and we had to look at him and I fell in love right away and I knew that this was probably the best hand eye coordination that I've ever seen in my life. So yeah just jump in there. Did you see the video with the wooden spoon? Yahoo hasn't I mean one of the most popular videos intenders. I would say so. You know what I'm GonNa send you a video just for you and you can post it on your side. Where he hits were the wooden stake now. Oh yes that is amazing. You can see on that. Looks like and then we have another junior now. Who's twelve and he was hitting really well with it and he did it with. Jonas and Jonas told me Alex I think the guy's better with a wooden stick me now because I haven't hit with it for a while so I think that was quite

Traders expecting lower volumes throughout the day. Then bit of movement coming through in terms of US equity futures higher. You've got a bit of movement on the ASX two hundred straight up about eight tenths of one percent. Other than that. It's pretty quiet on the equity side in terms of the handover overnight. We did have course, they Tekere innings more generally with apple but also a little bit of a well, it was a weight on the shoulders from Google corporate earnings and develop the trade conflict between the US and China remain front and center, that's for sure I mean, running through some of the currency pairs here. You're looking here the Bloomberg dollar index. That's just barely about the flat line here quiet on the Major's front. So I mean, pretty much all of these pairs unchanged. Eurodollar one twelve twenty Donnie in one hundred and eleven fifty and cable is up less than a tenth of one percent. Short of one thirty fifty five commodities are on the pressure a little bit. Brent crude Coney down six tenths of one percent. We have higher inventories out of the US and the initial data overnight. Gold is lower by three tenths of one percent. So the metals on the pressure let me run through some of the news as well. In terms of the corporate earnings because we are getting of course, quite a few fast and furious start off with Sainsbury's fiscal year revenue at twenty nine point zero one billion pounds. You're looking here at fiscal year sales of thirty two point four one billion pounds to final dividend. Shares going to be seven point nine Pence. Few notes on guidance year Sainsbury saying the consumer outlook continues to be uncertain and that they are well-placed to navigate the external environment. So that's on the Sainsbury's front more retail input from next currently first quarter retail sales coming through a negative three point six percent. The market was looking for actually more of a contraction here down six point two one percents of slightly better than some of the analysts had pencilled in. I go to online sales eleven point eight percents the estimate heroes for twelve point eight percent. And so a little bit of a little bit better on the retail sales. But a little bit short of estimates on the online sales on guidance. They're still seeing fiscal year pre-tax at seven hundred and fifty million pounds and still see full price sales at up one point seven percent. And then also on the economic front. We've got some UK April house prices. They're up zero point four percent on the month. That's the nationwide. Up zero point nine percent on the years that is some economic input as well. So that's a bit of a flavor then on what's happening with these corporate earnings. Let's get now to some of the stories we're watching very carefully starting off with what's happening with the United States and China. The White House is ramping up pressure on China to reach a trade deal in the next two weeks. Bloomberg daybreak Asia anchor Bryan Curtis has more from Hong Kong, the US said once again, he would walk away from the talks if no deal, Mick Mulvaney, President Trump's acting chief of staff said negotiations would not go on forever. So the administration is making its impatience known a slight shift from the earlier more optimistic messaging still going into talks today. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the US side had a nice working dinner last night with vice-president Leo hub, two of the quick notes. The F T says the US is likely to accept a watered-down commitment from China on security that to speed up a deal and.

This fed meeting is widely expected to be a nun event except for that little possibility of a rate cut. No, not a policy cut to the fence target. But an adjustment to the rate of interest. The central Bank pays banks on excess reserves the effective federal funds rate traded a record five basis points above the excess reserves rate Tuesday most traders blamed technical rather than policy issues such as a rise in repo rates on other securities that suggests the fed doesn't need to do anything others note, though, it's been an ongoing problem and forecast a slight cut in the rake in Washington, Michael Mckee, Bloomberg daybreak Europe. And as the central Bank meant to weigh monetary policy. Donald Trump sought to pressure the fed to make drastic moves to boost and already healthy US economy in a pair of tweets Tuesday. Trump criticized the fed for having incessantly lifted interest rates and wonderfully low inflation Colfer steep interest rate cut and the resumption of bond purchases as well.

The former chairman of the banking committee said he thought the proposed nomination, quote has some problems Charlie Pellett. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. That's something singing. Singapore where Mark Cranfield and markets live team joins us, Mark. Let's start off with the mlive question of the day. The fed odds in terms of the likelihood of a move very contradictory and not really in line with what we're seeing the job market. Yes. Good morning, certainly the market by some as strong as it's been since the nineteen sixties in the United States pretty healthy condition. We've also saying some pretty good wage growth as well. Even though it hasn't really fit injuring flation too much. So Fava certainly in the GDP data from Las week, as well already know the picture is pretty healthy economy. We go to started go to the payrolls not becoming up on Friday, and the fed will certainly be thinking about this as well because it probably reinforce this very strong picture of job market. So when you have that in the background certainly makes a bit curious as to why the mock is getting so excited about the polls. Not of the fed may take the opportunity to to try and rain the market back in a little bit and try and get them back more to a neutral territory because of that. Let's talk about the greenback. It's climbed against all but three of its group ten currency peers and twenty nineteen to folks at TD North America point out that any further strengthening any wheat test of some of those twenty eighteen is could mean trouble for stocks can be trouble for high your credit and currencies as well. More. Generally. You're seeing that dollar bears can return to hibernation after the FOMC run me through your thinking. Yeah. So we had a little bit of softness in the dollar towards the individual pro, and that's not unusual this month and maneuvering which goes on. And it's quite often the case where people are just have to tidy things up in the came off a little, but the fundamental case for is is pretty hard to ignore right now, particularly against the emerging market currencies. You've got short term rates in America, which are very high in comparison to other g ten currencies relatively high compared to the emerging market world. Plus as we were saying this pretty strong background of data from the United States. And they made it very. Clear it's on a long-term polls here. So he's not really going to be going anywhere. We've monetary policy at the same time. There's other countries that want to lower interest rates in in Asia. We've had India of moved already we've got to Malaysia looking at it, South Korea looking at it Philippines, Indonesia, they're all heading towards lower rates environment. So that certainly from an investor's point to you. They're probably thinking that the fed is beginning to look like a high yield currency here. So we could save it. If a rebound once the fed is out the way people start looking ahead to Friday's jobs report. It's always a pleasure catching up. Thank you for stopping buying. It's Mark Cranfield.
