36 Burst results for "CBA"
A highlight from Part 1: USAs World Cup Collapse, Basebrawls, Jets Optimism, Life in The G-League and The OC 20 Years Later | with Gabe York and Zoe Simmons
"Coming up, an unexpected two -part podcast cameo from me. It's next. We're also brought to you by the Ringer Podcast Network, where we turned over Sean Fennesey and Amanda Dobbins' big picture feed to Brian Raftery. It's a narrative podcast called, Do We Get to Win This Time? How Hollywood Made the Vietnam War. You can find it on the big picture starting on Tuesday. And it is an idea I'm really excited about because it came from a class that I did as a senior in college in 1992. Me and my friend Horgs talked a movies professor into doing a special Vietnam War movies class where we watched basically every Vietnam War movie that had been made up to 1992 and then tried to write a big picture term paper about it. And the thing that was really fascinating about that class and something that stuck with me was just that whole concept of Hollywood reinventing the entire Vietnam experience under the premise of, Did We Get to Win This Time? So we got Brian involved and he turned the idea into an awesome, awesome podcast. I even went and dug up the term paper that I wrote 31 years ago. I thought it was gonna be horrendous. It wasn't bad. I was kind of proud of myself, retroactively 31 years later. Anyway, Do We Get to Win This Time? How Hollywood Made the Vietnam War. It is gonna be in the big picture podcast starting on Tuesday. So that's one piece of business. Second, new rewatchables on Monday night. It is the 300th movie that we've done. It's a special one. We're doing National Lampoon's Vacation. It was time. Meet Chris Ryan, Van Lathan. Yeah, and Van was pushing for it because we wanted to do Christmas Vacation during the holidays and you can't do Christmas Vacation. If we do National Lampoon's Vacation, super fun. Can't wait for you to listen to it. And we'll be running the video at some point on the YouTube channel, youtube .com slash Bill Simmons, where we put up a whole bunch of rewatchables podcasts in case you missed it. Boogie Nights is up there now. Goodfellas, Independence Day, just a slew of them. So if you're bored and you wanna throw on some rewatchables and watch us make fun of each other, there you go. Last but not least, I don't wanna say this is the most important, but it's certainly the thing I spent the most time on. Our documentary that we did about the G League with Religion of Sports and Ringer Films, we combined, and it is premiering on Tuesday, August 8th. It is called Destination NBA, A G League Odyssey. It's really good. We immersed ourselves into the G League season. We followed Scoot Henderson, Gabe York, Ryan Terrell, Mason Jones, and Denzel Valentine. And the big question was, what is this world like? What's it like to be in the G League? And I am really proud of where we landed with it. And we even have, much later in this podcast, Gabe York is gonna come on. He's one of the five that we followed, and he's gonna tell us what it's like as you're holding on to your dream in your late 20s. We try not to spoil the doc too much with Gabe, but I really liked him. He's probably the guy that jumps out of the doc in the most sympathetic way. So look forward for you to watch it. It is prime video, Tuesday, August 8th, Destination NBA. A G League Odyssey. You love basketball, just watch it, it's good. So there you go. This is gonna be part one of a two -part podcast. Gabe is coming up later. My daughter Zoe Simmons is coming up later because we did a whole bunch of OC stuff on the Prestige TV podcast. I was even on two of the episodes. But I ended up watching season one of the OC. And my daughter was watching with us and loved the show. And she was born a year and a half after it premiered. So me and her broke down season one from the perspective of what is it like when somebody 18 watches the OC, a show that is now two decades old. The anniversary was actually August 6th. And what she liked, what she didn't like, what people aren't doing anymore for her kind of audience. And we just dove into it. So that is much later. First, coming out of the gate, I'm gonna open a six -pack because we have a lot to discuss over the past three weeks, all the stuff I missed. So that's gonna be part one. And then part two, which is gonna go up later on Sunday night, me and Rossello doing this evergreen idea that we've always wanted to do. And this seemed like the perfect time because nothing's happening in basketball. So that's gonna be part two later tonight. Part one coming up. First, our friends from ProJax. What's up? All right, I'm taping this. It is Sunday afternoon Pacific time. And I'm gonna open a six -pack. There's a bunch of stories in sports and culture that happened over the last three weeks. I was just writing stuff down, things that would have been fun for podcast segments. I was just like, man, I wish I could have given my thoughts on that. Just gonna rip through them. So I have six and then maybe a couple bonus ones at the end. The first one, the biggest one, was the US women's soccer team, which lost today in penalty kicks to Sweden, scored zero goals in the last two games, scored one goal in the last three games, and that was off a corner kick. You could feel from the beginning that something was off with this team. It was all the ways. You knew in a checklist of what are the red flags? There were just red flags galore. And the only person who was really calling it out in time over and over again was Carli Lloyd, who was doing the Fox studio show. And she was the one person in the horror movie who knows the house is haunted. And everyone's like, shut up. You're not being patriotic. You just wish you were still on the team. She was right. She was right from the get -go. This team, you could see it before the Vietnam game when it was like, look at the new Nike suits. Look at these new suits. And they're all like styling as they head into the locker room. And they're running commercials. And every player has a commercial. There's players who've never done anything of that commercials. And the vibe was just off. They only beat Vietnam three -nothing in a bracket where goal differential was gonna be super -duper important. And that was a huge red flag. And we did the usual thing that we've been doing since 2019, 2015 of, oh, well, they almost scored a bunch of times. Oh, well, if that had gone in or some bad luck. There was just an arrogance to this team. Like they were carrying themselves like the defending champs, the same way like the Denver Nuggets would go into next NBA season. Like we're the champs. I was like, yeah, you are the champs because the season just happened. The World Cup happened four years ago. Everyone's four years older or wasn't on the team. And you could see they wanted to build the team instead of around the identity of, here are these new up and coming awesome stars that are gonna be in your life. They were really latching on to Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe. Alex Morgan's 34, Megan Rapinoe's 37. I think one of the differences between the discourse with women's sports and men's sports is that in men's sports, we grasp for angles. And if somebody is disappointing in some way, we really go nuts. Like think of how James Harden's been treated over the last 12 years. So he's one of the 35 best players ever and has taken just an incredible amount of shit. Oh my God, the playoffs, look at his game log. Oh, he choked again. Alex Morgan, who scored twice in her first two games in the World Cup in 2011, she scored once in 2015 in seven games. She scored six times in 2019, five against Thailand in a game that was 13 to nothing, one in the other six, and then scored nothing in the four games this time around. If you take away that Thailand game, she has scored two goals in the last 17 World Cup games. This is the striker. This is the one who's supposed to be the most dangerous player in the field, who's supposed to produce goals. And she hasn't produced goals since the mid 2010s on the national level. And yet it's Alex Morgan. She was supposed to be the next one. We got to keep propping her up and pretending she's a superstar. She's not a superstar. She's really honestly never been a superstar. She certainly hasn't been as impactful as somebody like Abby Wambach was. So you have the team built around her. She's got to play. They play her the entire game, game two, the entire game, game three. She plays like 95 minutes in this game today, and they don't score goals. And the announcers just won't talk about it. It's like being on an AYSO team that your kid's on, and the coach is playing somebody at striker, and everyone's like, why don't they play Sally at striker instead of the coach's daughter? It's like, oh, you know, the coach's daughter. She's got to play there. So you have that, and then you have Rapinoe, who's 37 years old, who's just, unfortunately, great career, legendary, true legend, huge big time player. And when you hit your late 30s in soccer, it's a wrap. She looked like Yudana Rapinoe, not big Rapinoe, and comes out for the last 25 minutes of this game and can't do anything, and then misses the penalty kick. That's the thing. If you're beholden to past performance, you can't expect to succeed in the moment. And I did feel like, what were this team's strengths? Speed. They had Sophia Smith, who really was bad the last three games on the left wing. Like, she just, she couldn't even connect passes. Trinity Rodman, who's a beast. Lynn Williams, who's super fast and athletic and had some really nice moments the last two games. And then Alyssa Thompson, who's the prodigy, who's the, you know, potential tiger or LeBron of this team. 18 years old, best high school player I've ever had. They won't even throw her out there. But this was not a team that could connect passes. They weren't, like, especially creative. The coaching was just bizarre, and we'll never see that guy again. But it was like, the one thing they did have was speed, especially the forwards, and they just threw that away. And Alex, you know, couldn't do anything. So now they're out. It's the most disappointing finish of the last 25 years for the women's team. And it reminds me in a lot of ways that 2004 Olympic basketball team that we had, the USA team. And I tweeted this, I think after the second game, because that was a team that was between eras, like this one was, where all the best players on that 2014, the ones in their primes, weren't that good, except for Duncan. And Duncan was completely banged up. He'd played so many NBA games the last couple of years. I think his knee was hurt. But, you know, it was Iverson and Marbury. The talent, it just was a between eras. And you had guys on the bench, like LeBron and Carmelo and Wade, who were four years away. Kobe wasn't on the team. And it just felt generationally, like we caught that team in the wrong time. The style was wrong. And we learned all these lessons and we moved on. 2008, we win. There's a documentary about it. But this team felt like it was between eras. The Alex Morgan, Rapinoe era, which was basically done. And then you have this era coming up with Rodman and Sophia Smith and Alyssa. And, you know, it's just four years from now, we'll probably be fine. But they need to re -imagine this. And I think if you're gonna learn any lesson from this, it doesn't matter what happened four years ago. It's the World Cup. It matters what's happening now. So that's one thing. Second thing. So Jaylen Brown gets this huge contract, $304 million. Some people seem surprised that it was that much money. Chris Ryan even took a shot at it when we did our library watchables. Hurt my feelings a tiny bit. Mainly because I didn't really have a comeback. Rosella did something on his podcast about how this actually makes sense. This amount of money, when you think of how the salary cap has climbed just since 2015, and it's gonna keep climbing. And there's this world you can go into where you think about just how much everything is gonna cost in the NBA four or five years from now, that Jaylen Brown at $70 million isn't actually gonna be that intimidating. The same way we feel about Tobias Harris for $40 million now, or Klay Thompson, $40 million now. Yeah, you don't really wanna pay $40 million for Klay Thompson, but you can survive it. And I think that's gonna be where the Celtics land with Jaylen. Here's why they had to do it. They're the favorites on FanDuel right now. They're plus 470. The thing that made them the most special and has made them the most special for the last five, six years is the Jaylen Brown -Jason Tatum combo. They've been incredibly successful. The team itself has made five conference finals in the last seven years. They came super close to making the finals last year. I have now gone into the what if zone with that Celtics team where what if Tatum doesn't hurt his ankle on the first play? Do we beat Miami? They were close is the point. And when you're that close, you can't fuck around. This is not Bradley Beal resigning with Washington for 50 million a year when everybody knows you can't get past the eight seed with Bradley Beal. This is different. You're trying to win a title. You're trying to keep all your optionality open. The thing that's a little scary about it, nobody seems to totally know if he wants to be in Boston. This is something we've discussed on this pod. It's been floating out there. The fact that he wasn't happy about landing in the Kevin Durant trade rumors a couple years ago. And just in general, where the league is now, where as Woj called it, the transfer portal, where people get their contract first and then they decide what they want to do. And I think for the Celtics, they know they bought themselves a year with Jalen and they are still one of the favorites to win the title. And a lot of it's going to depend on health and Porzingis. You could also, I don't want to make the case, but you might be able to make the case that Brown had a fucked up hand last year. Cause he did. Cause he sliced his hand open. It was bleeding even during the Philly series. And maybe that was why his ball handling went sideways. Listen, you got to do the contract. It just breaks your brain. I remember a million years ago, Sports Illustrated and Inside Sports say every year they would have like a salary issue. And they would talk about these guys are making $1 million a year. And it seemed like so much money. And now where we're heading with the money, plus the NBA is the meteorites deal. The moment any of these guys becomes unhappy, what do you do? Because you're paying Jalen, let's say you're paying him 55 million a year. Plus he is the trade kicker, which the team has to pay. Right? So if he decides after a year, you know what? I'm tired of being the scapegoat. Everybody loves Jason. I'm like the middle brother of this team. I want my own team. I want to go to Houston or Atlanta. You got to trade me. What are the Celtics going to do? On top of who would want out, you don't have a lot of options and you turn into what the situation Portland's in with Deem. And then on top of it, it's so much money. It's impossible to get any sort of a fair trade for the guy. So they had to do it. And optionality the that comes out of it is frightening. I remember in the early 2000s, when the first time the contracts kind of went nuts and you would see that people get signing like six -year, $100 million deals, seven -year, $110 million deals. And the Celtics really, really stupidly traded for Vin Baker. One of the worst trades of the last 30 years for Boston Sports. A trade so bad, you knew it instantaneously. And I wrote a piece that you can probably find somewhere in the ESPN archives about it, where I compared it to the end of Thelma Louise when Harvey Keitel is running toward the cliff trying to stop the car from going off the cliff. That's how I thought about the Vin Baker trade when it happened. Then it happens and you just had this salary albatross. It's a salary cap league. And you're like, wow, we just threw away 20 % of our salary cap on this trade. There's going to be a couple of those that are just franchise killers. And whether that leads to them bringing back the amnesty clause, who knows? I wish, I've made this, I've had this idea before. I wish that they had a rule in there that if you drafted a guy, every year that he stays in the team, you get rewarded in some way from a salary cap luxury tax type thing, right? So Jaylen was 2016 draft, this would be his eighth year. Maybe like after the seventh year, because that's usually like the third contract. The guy stays in the team, maybe each year after that, he doesn't count for 2 % of the luxury tax, up to like 30%, something like that. The point is the Warriors should be rewarded for keeping Draymond and Klay and Curry from a tax standpoint, that they were that smart to draft those guys, keep those guys together. They should be incentivized, the players, to want to stay with them because there's some luxury tax stuff that the team gets. And the team should want to be incentivized to take care of those guys because it's also beneficial to them. I just wish they figured out some version of that rule. Anyway, Jaylen was always signing for $304 million. Talk to me in a year, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Next thing, I missed the running back pity party. This was crazy. The running backs all got together and they were really upset about how much money they made. And I don't know what to tell you. There's too many running backs and not enough running back spots. And I don't know if you're trying to build a responsible salary cap team in a collectively bargained era, why would you spend $30 million over two years on a running back unless the running back was awesome? Nobody even wants to spend more than $11 million on running back. So I knew that this was crazy when Damien Harris, who was on the Patriots, who I thought was really good. He's maybe not an elite running back, but a good running back, right? Somebody that if he had been on the Chiefs, he easily could have started for the Chiefs. And he signed with the Bills for like one year, 2 million. And when that happened, combined with Pacheco on the Chiefs' seventh round pick, they won the Super Bowl with him. It's just, this position's devalued. I work on this player, I've been actually working on it the last couple of weeks where I try to rank the players for blue chippers, red chippers, pink chippers, honorable mention, and have this whole point system. And so quarterbacks, Mahomes, who's the alpha of that position, he's worth 10 points. And you could even see this in the point spread. If Mahomes gets hurt, the Chiefs are 10 points, nine points, whatever, less than what they would be as a favorite. They'd switch to an underdog. And you go on down the line. Jalen Hurts, I had him as an eight. I had Joe Burrow as a nine. And you go on, you keep going down, and it's like, Geno Smith's probably a two. But then you look at some of the other positions and you have to value them the same way the salary cap values them and teams value them. Guards, they aren't worth that much. Running backs, sorry, they're not worth that much. My top running back was three points because ultimately running backs don't really matter that much. In the last like five, six years, I would say Derrick Henry was the only running back that you could definitively say, this guy almost won the Super Bowl. Like he was that good. Other than that, you know, it's plug and play, quarterbacks, it's receivers. It's much harder to find the number one receiver. Every team needs one. It's much more tangible if you don't have the number one receiver. And it's much easier to just kind of scrap together the running back position. And yet people went nuts about this. We ironically had this in the NBA with centers. You know, Vucevic, who's a really good offensive player, he signed for 60 million for three years, 20 million a year. And Jaylen Brown's going to make $52 million a year. Is Jaylen Brown two and a half times better than Vucevic? No, it's just, he plays a way more important position. You can only play one center at a time. You can patch together the center position. You could have like Isaiah Hartenstein for $8 million. You could, you know, get Robert Williams for 16. You don't need to spend what Phoenix did on Eaton where they're paying $8 and $30 million a year at center. And you don't really need to do that. You kind of feel obligated if you don't want to lose the asset. But I think the NBA is going to go this way eventually where unless it is Jokic or Embiid, the center or Bam Adebayo, it's a bonus. You could argue that was already an overpay. They gave him a huge extension. The Lakers just gave Anthony Davis $60 million a year as an extension. I would argue that's a little frightening. I feel like you could patch together the center position. What really matters in basketball is having the creator. And this was the argument five years ago with Luka versus Eaton for the number one pick. And I made this argument. It was like, go look at who wins the NBA title every year. It's always the people who have the creator. There's somebody who's on the perimeter of the ball in their hands. Even Jokic, who wins the title this year, he was a creator. He's not a typical center, right? He's basically their point guard on offense who could post up. So this happened in the NBA. Nobody went nuts. And this is happening in football. And is this where football is. If you want to make the most amount of money playing in the NFL, I don't know why you would be a running back. I would be a cornerback. I would be a wide receiver. I'd be an edge rusher. But if you're a running back, you know your shelf life's probably like five, six years. You know the money is not totally gonna be there. Now they're in this, like you have people like JK Dobbins, like, I might hold out. It's like, really? You didn't barely even play in the field. Barkley said he was gonna hold out. And then, you know, probably looked at it. And the money for Barkley is like 10, 11 million. That's unfortunately the market. So you can't fix this. They collectively bargained it. And until we get to the next CBA, I don't know how you fix it. I thought it was really weird. It felt like people had nothing to talk about. And it was like, ah, let's feel bad for running backs. All right, let's take a break. And then I'm gonna finish the rest of the six pack. All right, picking up on the six pack. We're gonna talk a little more football. I talked about the running back pity party. This is a different kind of party. The Jets optimism, which has just been stunning to me over the course of July. I have Jets fans in my life. These are people that usually have no hope and are very reminiscent of the pre -2004 Red Sox fans, just assuming the worst at all times. Why does God hate us? All that stuff. And now they have this crazy optimism based on the fact that they brought in Aaron Rodgers, who I did not think was very good last year, just throwing that out there. I wouldn't say he was bad, but for Rodgers, he was bad. I mean, we thought Rodgers was, he was the reigning MVP and we thought he was still one of the five or six most impactful players in the league. And I don't wanna read stats to you for the next six minutes, but deep balls, he was bad. Turnovers, he was bad. Leadership, he was bad. And the case for Rodgers coming back would be, well, he's gonna be rejuvenated. The Jets, New York City. This is his team. He got away from Green Bay. He's got Hackett back. I get it, but he's also at an age where we've really only seen Tom Brady succeed at a high, high level at the age that Rodgers is at. I was trying to figure it out. I have my QB ratings and I had, you know, the top tier is Mahomes and Burrow and Allen and Herbert and Hertz. Those have to be the top five. Then it drops off and it's Lamar Jackson and Lawrence. And then Rodgers, probably a hair underneath him with a chance to play himself up with those guys. But from what we saw last year, I'm not ready to put him there. So he's the 10th best quarterback in the league, probably. 10th or ninth best quarterback in the league, probably. Well, they have no offensive line. And I don't understand why people keep glossing over this where it's like, hey, Rodgers and Garrett Wilson, he's one of the best receivers in the league and Breece Hall's going to come back and the defense is really good. And it's like, yeah, the offensive line is terrible. Beckton and Dwayne Brown, sure tackles again. And then you have Robert Salah as the coach, who I cannot say I thought that Jets were crisply coached last year. Whatever he was doing with Zach Wilson was insane. No idea if that guy's even a decent coach. So I'm already worried about your offensive line, the age of your quarterback, and the competency of your coach. And that's before we get into the hard knocks curse, because for some reason they're doing hard knocks, the incredible Super Bowl hype already. And then we have the schedule, which is the AFC East has just got screwed by the schedules this year. The Jets, just for quarterbacks in 17 games, they got to play Josh Allen twice, they got to play Mahomes, Herbert, Hertz, Dak Prescott, and Deshaun Watson. And then they also have to play Miami twice. We'll see what we get out of two this year. And then a really good Pats defense. And then Denver, who knows, they might be rejuvenated. So Danny Dimes, they have to play him. It is a brutal schedule, so you have that. And then on top of everything else, you're the Jets. I was there with the Red Sox before 2004, and this is probably just as bad, where you just think the worst possible things can happen is all the time. You're not allowed to have optimism when you're Jets fans. You can be cautiously optimistic. There was an entire Curb Your Enthusiasm episode once, season 10, episode seven, about being a Jets fan. And it was called, I think, the ugly section. Nick Kroll was the maitre d'. And part of the episode was about, he would put these people in different sections of the restaurant, depending on how attractive they were. But there was this other plot, Larry's buddy who loved the Jets, kills himself. And Larry becomes convinced it was because of the Jets, that the Jets killed his friend. This was only a couple of years ago. So now they get Aaron Rodgers, and everything's good. And they're gonna win the Super Bowl. I don't see it, guys. I don't wanna step on my football stuff too much, but I'd be shocked. And Lombardi points out the defense that everybody's ready to compare to the 85 Bears. Lombardi said they had two turnovers over the last eight games last season. So that means something too. I am dubious, to say the least. If you're gonna tell me a tortured franchise actually turns it around this year, I want a tortured franchise that doesn't have expectations. Because the Lions are another one. Everybody's ready to put them in the Super Bowl or close. And the only case for them is just pretty explosive offense. They couldn't stop anybody last year. And the NFC is terrible. But that's another one where is that a fan base that should be super excited and have a ton of hype? The one that's kind of lurking that fits in this group is the Browns. Because the Browns are actually super talented. They're in a winnable division. Burroughs already hurt. And I think they're four to one to win the AFC North on FanDuel, something like that. Their over -under is, I think it climbed up.
Fresh update on "cba" discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
"Lane there. We're seeing some backup and Northbound 5 through Olympia and Lacey. We are still seeing some backup there due to an earlier crash that's on the shoulder. Your next Northwest traffic report at 454. You're listening to Northwest This Week with Mark Christopher. Welcome back. With the respiratory virus season nearly upon us, the State Department of Health has launched a new dashboard. Kathy O 'Shea of Northwest News Radio explains. Before COVID 19, two viruses flu and RSV were the main causes of severe respiratory disease during the fall and winter months, state epidemiologist Dr. Scott Lindquist says the DOH has launched a new comprehensive dashboard to include those viruses. This is a respiratory illness dashboard that gives us a snapshot of where we're at for emergency visits, hospital admissions, and even ICU beds, but it's for three viruses, not just COVID. Lindquist adds now is time to prepare for respiratory virus season. This is the time for us to pull out all those lessons we've learned about mask wearing, hand washing, all the respiratory etiquette. The new dashboard will be updated weekly through April. Kathy O 'Shea, Northwest News Radio. With police departments doing more with less, WPD turning to technology to stay in touch with 911 callers. It's called SpiderTech and it's capable of sending text messages, even emails to people on the other end of 911 calls. isn't But this a one -time interaction. We're told the fully automated system is designed to keep victims informed throughout their case. As police chief Wendell Shirley put it, we're here to protect and serve and SpiderTech will ensure crime victims have the important information they need. But this is also a learning tool. There will be surveys about the experience, what worked and what didn't during this interaction with Bellevue PD. SpiderTech debuts next week. John Lubertini, Northwest News Radio. Now for the citizens of Ballard, 12 more years of taxes is reason to celebrate. It's because they fought for and won the right to continue a successful neighborhood improvement program. A week ago, supporters of the Ballard Business Improvement Area packed city council chambers to lobby for an extension and expansion of attacks on neighborhood businesses. CBA is critical wondering we have a clean, safe neighborhood and I'm happy to pay that tax. VIAs are found in neighborhoods But council member Dan Strauss says Ballard has been uniquely successful in promoting street safety 50 and beautification sponsoring public art and staging commerce friendly events. You do government operations. You do problem solving for small businesses. You create neighborhood vibrancy. The council has agreed to expand the Ballard BIA for 12 more years and to expand itself to encompass the retail area known as Ballard Blocks. Corwin Haake, Northwest News Radio. Speaking of neighborhoods, trees of historical significance might soon be protected from removal. It's under a new proposal before a Seattle City Council committee culturally modified trees are those altered by local tribes nations ago with things like markings used to help people find their way. The Snoqualmie tribe was among tribes assaulted as this bill was crafted after Chairman Bob De Los Angeles said there was no discussion with tribes when the previous measure was passed. The CMTs are belonged to the sites and as such are protected under state law. It is critical that other CMT archaeological sites are protected within Seattle limits and beyond. would Builders be subject to a verification process before any tree removal permit would be issued. Councilmember Alex Peterson wrote the measure. We did talk to the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation of the state and they're to ready respond quickly to any requests like this from the city. Peterson asked to fast track the measures placement on the council's introduction and referral calendar, a move that won a narrow 5 -4 vote. Ryan Harris, Northwest News Radio. Urban birds are developing smaller eyes according to a new study we heard this past week from Washington State University. With city lights, street lights and even headlights illuminating what would otherwise be a darkened area, urban birds appear to be developing smaller eyes as a result. It really does seem to be light specifically putting this selective pressure on eyesight in these urban core birds. Researcher Jennifer Phillips with Washington State University says more rural birds tend to have larger eyes, presumably to allow them to see better in low light conditions. She says more research is needed but this appears to be another indication how of urban sprawl is having a significant effect on the surrounding environment. The study appears in the journal Global Change Biology. Jeff Pojola, Northwest News Radio. You know we have to get to the story. You've probably seen the pictures on social media. What's eight feet long, 300 pounds and on the shores of Lake Washington. A giant dead sturgeon washed up on the swim beach at Log Boom Park in Kenmore. It was found September 6th. A research scientist with the State Department of Fish and Wildlife tells the Seattle Times it couldn't have been dead more than two or three days. He says the female was between 60 and 80 years old. This is not the first time this has happened. In 2013 a large sturgeon was found on Mathews Beach and in 1987 a whopping 11 foot long 640 pound sturgeon was found in the lake. Manda Factor, Northwest News Radio.

And many of us probably guilty of this impulse buying on social media sites. Just how much are we spending? Stick around more of Northwest News this week coming up. So what are you reading? I'm checking out the ratings on the new TVs and it looks like Samsung, LG and Sony got the best scores. Just like last year. What about those new high dynamic range TVs? They got the highest scores all of but their prices are really high. Did you check online? Yeah their prices were about the same. Well there's one place where we can get a hot deal on those top rated models. Where? At video only. Check out the ratings on TV stores. I see video only scored better than the others. So if you want the best deal on the best

"Was that he likes being the main attraction. He was not in a hurry to share that with somebody else. Even though Portland's not part of a big three. Right. Right. And even though Portland, I would say is in the bottom five now, as far as cities that NBA guys are going like, Hey, where do I want to go? Portland's pretty low and he seems to be pretty cool with the whole thing. So I think there is, you know, when you said like, you know, if the front office or whatever, if there, if there is a group out there, the way people are talking about that front office, I'd imagine that they're not, you know, gonna just go, yeah, cool. Like, let's, let's just tip our hands here on everything. But Charlotte's the one that I think that's that that's the one I was talking about with, I'm not convinced they're going to execute this correctly because they show no ability to do so really for 20 years. Yeah. Cause the NJ part of it, like, I, I have no idea what happens there other than the end result hasn't been all that good. But the other part of the Brandon Miller thing coming off the miles bridges stuff where there's still a basketball decision to be made on that. Um, I brought this up on my pod. I have no idea if it plays into it at all. Like if Brandon Miller and Scooter, a tie, just scoot lose the tie because it's a positional thing or does Brandon Miller lose the tie because the off the court stuff, which I feel like some teams throughout the process are like, not great, but we're okay. Have you read and heard some of the team reactions? Like he he's been, I wouldn't say forthcoming about what happened. And I also there's been some stuff about how he lost some weight cause he was sick and doesn't seem like he's been playing basketball that much. So when we get to the workout part of this, he might actually just bomb and I think Scoot's going to kill the workouts and people are going to spend time with Scoot and they're going to be like, Jesus Christ. So I think Charlotte will end up taking Scoot, but they should make Portland think they're not going to take Scoot. And we never seen teams do this ever cause Portland's going to panic. If, uh, I'm sorry, Charlotte, they have to make it seem like they're gonna take Miller. Cause Portland's going to panic if they think Scoot's going to be there at three. Cause then it's like, well, okay, now do we trade Dame? Like they're going to have to do something. Right. And is Scoot good enough? And you do that to, this is the stuff that I think is worth bringing up. I'm not sure how much I would worry about it, but like imagine if you're trading Dame cause Scoot falls, do you? And then there's all of that on this kid who entered the G league at 17 years old. I argue that based on the people that know Scoot and they all fucking love them that he'd be like, all right, whatever. And we saw that against the Wemba Yama showdowns. He granted, he got hurt in the second one. It's my favorite. The first game against Wemba Yama where he was like, I know what everybody's here for, but I'm going to make sure they recognize who I am and what I can do. And even the talk about him having a down year this year in the G league, which he did, there's just a lot. Well, I think people felt like he was coasting a little bit more, but there's the cop that I made was the Halliburton stuff. When you watch Halliburton in college, you could see that he saw things the other nine players wouldn't even think about. They were just like, what? Like they must've watched film. His teammates have been like, what was that? Like, how did you even see that? I'm not saying like Scoot's that or Jason Kidd, but for somebody that's so good off the ball knowing, oh, hey, they're going to blitz me. I'm just going to dribble right past you. Oh, the guy's coming up and he's not dropping. I'm going to pull up mid range. Yes, it looks a little Chris Paul -ish, not going to lie. There's another play where he just tries to absolutely humiliate the entire league. By the way, Kenneth Fareed out there, Mexico city G league. Shout out. Poo Jetter, 39 years old in the G league. Still making it happen. Poo's in our G league doc. Oh, there you go. 39. Still making it happen. Here's the thing with Scoot. There's a durability piece to him. Like he's just got such an unbelievable athleticism and such a body. Like I, you know, there's certain guys, like Westbrook was like this, where you're like, wow, that guy, that's like an 82 games a year. Kind of dude. I just, I just, Scoot to me almost looks like Donovan Mitchell. If Donovan Mitchell was just built like Saquon Barkley or something, you know, I think he's, he should be the second pick. And if I'm Charlotte, you know, maybe the you don't even need to do the chicanery cause the Miller workout stuff is going to be kind of shaky enough that people are going to go, and you can't even pretend. But if I'm them, I'm building around Scoot. And if Lamello can fit with him, great. If not, I'll figure it out. But he's, he's got a higher ceiling than the mellow for me. I'm, do you think are we positive Lamello is a winning player as much fun as he is to watch? Like, do you actually see him in a game like the one we watched last night? I don't know. I think he's a lot of fun. He's their star despite having super fun. Right. He's he, he's been hurt, you know, but when I watch it all, it's, it's fun. The vision is incredible, but I there's, there has to be some like real basketball growth for him. Yeah. You know, I think the numbers are great. I think the plays are awesome. I think he could actually play with another dude like Scoot, like Scoot could initiate Lamello. I think as a fun teammate, apparently they're both friends. But then I just told like Lamello, everybody likes Lamello. Lamello likes everybody like he gets along with everybody. But yeah, it's some of that winning play shit that I always talk about. I would argue it's, it's lacking with him, which happens with a lot of the young guys. Wouldn't call him a good defender. No, I just think the being lost stuff is what, what frustrates me more. Like it's one thing to get upright and get beat off the dribble by another NBA ball hand.
"cba" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Cause I'll be like, how is this? Cause then he'll have a dribble in to traffic where I'm like, what is he doing? And then his legs spread a bit and then he just drains it from 17 feet. And you go, okay, this is the reason why he's all NBA. This is the reason why he's going to make all this money. And this is why he's actually, I would think profiles to be better than Caleb Martin the rest of his career. The surprise in this has been in my tracking of like, all right, how many dudes do you have something goes wrong that can find a way to get you a bucket? Because everything, all of your first, your second, all your counters, they're all gone at this point. It's just drive and find a way to get a shot off and make it. And he's, he's one of the rare guys that can really do that. And then Miami found another one in this series and Caleb Martin. I was thinking that turnover should almost be, you know, we have so many good stats now, certainly more than you and I ever thought we would have 15 years ago. I even remember writing a column about it, about the Sloan conference and how there are all these numbers. I wish we had them, right? I know the teams have them. I wish we had access. Glad we have access to them. It feels like turnovers, there should be like unforced error turnovers, like in Venice, because smart and Brown, it's, they're not just turnovers. They're like Brown, like, uh, in the game five, like where he just throws the one armed out alley pass to Robert Williams that hits the shot clock and you're like, wow, what was that? Are they trying to get Williams? Are they trying to get him killed between smart? Trying to blow it as an ACL. Uh, they have more. What is that? Turnovers, those two guys than anyone I've ever seen. I was texting, um, with somebody about it saying like, if Jalen Brown was a tennis player, he would be the guy that he's up 40 love in the set and double faults. And all of a sudden it's at, it's add in. You're like, wait, you're just up 40 love. And the other guy didn't even hit a shot. Why did you let that guy back in the game? Um, but it's just part of the package. And, you know, it sounds like we're always complaining, not you and I, but just like all the Celtic fans are complaining about this team. It's just, we've seen, we've seen over a hundred playoff games with this nucleus. And you say it's like a marriage. You start like, oh my God, my wife's so fucking annoying. I can't believe she did that. Oh my, uh, oh great. She had three glasses of Rose with the girl. She's going to come home and start yelling at me that I left the TV on. Hey, you're just, it's, it's the ebb and flow of a marriage. And that's what it is with these guys, which doesn't exist in the NBA anymore. It's like the Warriors have this and the Celtics have this. These guys that have been together for long periods of time. And you watch a series like this and you think like, yeah, this is why you don't trade Jalen Brown. It's cool. Like they had that video at the end of the game last night. They had like the celtics .com, they had Missoula gave his little speech and then they're all celebrating in the locker room and Jalen and Tatum were just like hugging and then they were looking at each other and they put their foreheads on each other. Like it was the fucking end of Rain Man with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. They just like, like forehead touches. Like there's like real love with those guys now. They've been in a lot of battles. So if you're thinking this summer, and we're going to talk about the CBA later in the pod, can you pay these two guys 120 million? It's like, that's why, because there's real DNA with those guys. Now there's a real partnership as frustrating as they are sometimes. When we were talking a week ago and I didn't think they were going to come back, but what I would you, what signs were there that they were going to come back? No, but that's why they were so confusing. And that's why they continue to be so confusing is how can a team almost blow last night? How can they look like they quit in game three, which they did quit. They quit in game three, blow game two after you just blew game one and you're supposed to be the better team. You were just in the finals last year. So this is not some team that was put together. It's like, Hey, you know, he's having a great season. This team, they won 57 games. You know, but do we have, like, I have a hard time in basketball with any team that hasn't been around for a little bit. You know, a success out of nowhere usually doesn't happen in this league. So I'll admit sometimes being stubborn, I can miss on something. But when we were talking about the Celtics a week ago, I go, you know, the weird thing is, is that here they've quit, they've blown those two at home. And yet we have real evidence of them fighting. It's, it's the strangest combination of a personality the team could have. It's like, don't count them out. Except, but don't trust them. Right. Perfectly set. Yeah. Yeah. It was weird to hear their confidence in game four after game four. It was like, well, we stuck together. We knew I'm like, I'm glad you guys knew. I thought I, I've never seen a team roll over in the third game down to nothing. And show then signs of life. I don't really fully understand it, but NBA history says usually when you roll over in the game three, then the sweep comes in game four and then, you know, it's the one, two, three Cancun. Grandi said one, two, three Cancun, four, five, six Celtics. Pretty good line. We're going to take a break. That is a good line. I want to talk a little Miami and then we got to, uh, we're still, and I've done a lot of work on the CBA and I have even some thoughts I haven't shared with you yet, so that's next this episode is brought to you by game time, buying tickets to your

"From there. So I'm very optimistic for where things are going to go. They seem to talk. Yeah, I think this is a great sign and hopefully this is just, you know, okay, best case scenario, there's a few tweaks that give us something to sink our teeth into. But other than that, we just continue moving on. They sign this thing, get it done, and we move forward continuing to give us. Absolutely a lot of money at stake as one of my favorite settings sayings is that around that half a watermelon in the whole great. If you could change anything in the CBA and I guess it depends on what perspective you're looking at it from whether it's the ownership side of the player side. But what do you think needs to be changed the most right now? I would like when you're on the ten year max contract. So the 35% max. Without changing the money, overall total money. So let's just say it's 5 years, $250 million, making that that's not what it would be. But let's say that's what it is. I would like to see them be able to flip that. So that you take the bigger hits in your one. And then it goes down. You can't do that because you get front load of contract off of max and go down. You can, but the player would lose too much money that way. Go above their single year max. That's the only circumstance I would want them to be able to do that. Because then that way, James Harden, for example, maybe you feel a little bit better from not paying in $60 million in year 5, but I'm paying that in year one and that goes down to 42 million in year 5. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, so the contracts and the cap are going like this right there. They're going opposite each other. That's what I would like to see happen. Ultimately, with that because I think that is something there. And I don't think that hurts anybody because the players still getting the same amount of money. It actually frees up player movement, makes it better for the teams. So that's a change I would like to see. Yeah, I like that. I like that. That would be a good one. I wouldn't mind seeing some sort of a tweak to restricted free agency as well. I know there to cut down how long teams have to respond and everything. But it feels like when you look at free agency, the restricted free agents.

"The uninterrupted, the shop. That's where he came out. He directly said, I want a team. I want on the team in Vegas. So I want the theme in Vegas. So this isn't anybody but no one's reporting this. There's no one speculating here. He directly said this. So that leads a lot more credence to it than just a random report. Well, and he said this too, like, keeping in mind the Vegas is not that far from LA, correct? So if he's based in LA, it just makes all kinds of sense for him to go this round. So it'd be cool to see to see it happen. And personally, I'm with you to see gotta be Seattle first. And Dan Vegas tilted, get him two more west teams, rebounds, things a little bit, figure out how you get whether it's Memphis, Minnesota, whoever, blow the whole thing up and redo all the divisions conferences some way. One way or another, I'm fine with all that. Like we'll back and I'll get sorted, but yeah, get two more teams out there. It's an east coast fan who watches games in that tent and ten 30 window. It sucks sometimes when there's only like two good West Coast teams because then you get stuck. I can't tell you how many kings in dry Lakers years. Those were the only games on the middle of the night. It's like, come on. This is what I'm doing. Usually I just the east coast fans complaining that the games are on so late. 9 a.m. or 9 p.m. local start times. That's crazy. I get why they do it, but even the warriors gather like this sucks. Like you're all out of rhythm. These guys prepared in January play at 7 or 7 30 or 8 o'clock. Local time. And then you push it back to 9, which is really closer to like a 9 ten tip, but yeah, that's a whole we don't have enough time..

"Riding on game four on this one. All right, let's move to some news. On the jazz, willing to listen on trades for Rudy Gobert, but not so Donovan Mitchell that is pretty consistent with what we've been hearing. That they would consider moving him. Of course, Rudy Gobert's contract is something that teams will have to factor in four more years. Max deal, that's some teams will be willing to pay that, but still very, very high impact player. There's going to be suitors out there. It feels more like we're going to push towards a Gobert trade being executed here this summer. Maybe it doesn't happen. Maybe Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert are both on the jazz next season, but this franchise, the coach changing over, it feels like there's more change coming to this team. Yeah, you know better than anybody how I feel about this stuff when there's a lot of smoke. I tend to be all right. There's something here. We're hearing. I mean, it's now getting to be just about every day. We're hearing something about Gobert. Part of that is, I mean, whether you put it on him or the people work for him, then he doesn't exactly always keep things closest to the vest. I will say, though, when he does make moves, they generally tend to come a little out of nowhere. So Gobert is Chicago, the vucevic stuff that we've heard, I don't know about all that. But it was a surprise at all if he gets moved. It wouldn't shock me if there's some different team that jumps in on him that we haven't heard even worried about. And says, hey, yeah, we think he easily guy. I do think though it's going to be important if you trade him. It can't be for like a rebuilding package because you still got Mitchell so you're trying to still be competitive and keep him happy too. So we'll see. But I think you're right..

"Hello, everybody. Welcome back to the NBA front office show. It's official the postseason is here. We've got a lot to get into. We're going to talk a little bit about the plan. We're going to talk about some news, some injuries, things of that nature, where we do though, just coming off of LeBron's exit interview. Keith, you said they should have been recording this from fantasyland at Disneyland. The stuff I text you on the show. I thought it was funny. It was a good comment, especially when it came to the salary cap stuff. Well, when he talked about not salary cap at CBA, he used the CBA as his shield for why he couldn't say whether or not he was extending with the Lakers and I went, that's not right. Keith is gonna laugh about this. That wasn't the only thing I laughed about throughout the course of that person. The one that really got me was the comment about why him rust and AD weren't because they were on the floor together, 'cause we weren't on the damn floor together. It didn't look very good when you were on the damn floor together. But then, yeah, yeah, did CBA stuff Trevor is referring to is LeBron basically said, oh, we can't talk an extension yet because the CBA doesn't allow it. He's a Lakers player. There's a lot of way there. He's not even a Lakers. It's not even like he's a free agent and he's always becoming a free agent. He's still under contract until next summer. He could talk extension only once. Yeah. He can't officially enter into any agreements, nothing can be signed into, I believe it's August 4th, or something along those lines, but yeah, the other one that just kind of made me laugh is the season's not a failure because we came to work every single day with our hard hats on. Really cool. I mean, come on, man. That's the good job good effort. It's the participation trophy. Yeah, exactly. Thanks for your effort this year. When I was in my corporate job and they'd come and be like, you guys did a great job on this. Here's some sandwiches. Well done. Thanks for that. Wow. We worked hard today. But yeah, I mean, I didn't expect much different. I thought he was very candid to be more on the reasonable side. I thought he was very candid about basically saying, look, once we were out, I wasn't going to chase the scoring title. And I thought that was good. Especially considering you know better than I do, the number of people. You only care about stats. He's pushing on all this stuff. It was a little concerning to hear him talk about the ankle injury that he did make it worse in that game. He came back and played and that he's now that's going to take him several weeks of basically staying off his feet because he's a four to 6 week period..

"Show where we explore the big money issues in the world of sports I'm Michael Bond I'm scarlet fu And I'm Mike lynch Coming up on the show opening day delay on We'll get the latest on CBA negotiations with MLB network's John morosi but first let's talk wealth management for professional athletes I need to call this guy too According to a report from The New York Times Milwaukee Bucks point guard drew Holliday and his wife former pro soccer player and Olympic gold medalist Lauren holiday They have joined two NBA players in a lawsuit against Morgan Stanley A former broker alleging inappropriate distribution of money The holidays allege that the ex Morgan Stanley broker was entrusted to make basic long-term investments but steered millions of dollars to dubious individuals losing most of it in the process So let's talk more about all of this with Noel la Montaigne He is the director of the pro team at Verdun's capital advisers and a former offensive lineman for the Cleveland Browns That's where I know that name No welcome to the show sir Thanks for having me I really appreciate you all having me on Well let's start with that because we did the setup there about some of the players that are saying hey we were scammed My question to you is if this is true is this something that's normal that happens in the business Unfortunately the more that we have helped provide the types of services that we do for ultra high net worth individuals into the athlete entertainer space the more we're seeing a lot of questionable things being done with the assets of these types of individuals And I think it boils down to there's a lot of athletes and entertainers who have so many other things going on in their lives that they're asleep at the wheel when it comes to their finances And whether something nefarious or just something maybe unknown agreed upon but not a 100% aware of what was actually happening here I can tell you that we're just seeing too much of this There's too much of a lack of awareness in this space with these types of clients They're not paying enough attention to what their advisers are doing with their money why they're doing it how the mechanisms actually work They're giving up control in ways that they shouldn't be giving up control And in the good old days people just wanted to stuff all their cash into mattresses Unfortunately that would actually be a better outcome than what a lot of these people are doing trying to get in with these fancy boutique groups and individuals who really just aren't looking out for their best interest Well professional athletes are definitely more vulnerable than a lot of ordinary investors There was an Ernst and young report last year quoted in the times that said professional athletes reported almost $600 million in fraud related losses from 2004 to 2019 So certainly there's a trend there and it's troubling But the folks who say they got scammed here they did what a lot of ordinary investors do and what they should do right They relied on a big name brokerage Morgan Stanley and it's not like they went and found someone dodgy They found someone that is attached to a firm that has a reputation for doing things properly I mean how could they have gotten around this You actually just hit a really key point in my mind is that that study that reveals those statistics that individuals like athletes or entertainers are more susceptible Everybody is exactly equally susceptible There's nobody that's any less susceptible than anybody else What it boils down to and it's something that we preach we're extremely proactive when it comes to the transparency side of things And I think in the athlete entertainers space you really have to be proactively transparent You have to sit some of these individuals down You have to show them exactly what you're doing You have to show them why you're doing it You have to meet with them more often You have to educate them because if you don't the psychology I think of a lot of these alpha individuals is to just not want to be perceived in any way shape or form as weak or not intellectually on par or not understanding something They don't want to ask the question So you have to force them to see the answer to the question that they're not asking And that's something that we've really focused on And I don't necessarily think that's unique to athletes and entertainers And it is scary that this was a big box firm and this was somebody who you should be able to walk into this group and know that this adviser is held to a standard and they're not going to do anything that would be in any way shape or form perceived as cross the line Unfortunately if you're not paying attention to exactly what's going on with your assets anybody can do that to anybody Hey Noel it's Mike flinch up in Boston I know we spoke about this a couple of years ago I'm involved in this financial literacy program in Boston called credit for life where we have about 1200 high school kids come in and they pick a profession and they go around to every booth and they have electricity utilities they have automotive they have housing they have education they have a vacation and they try to fit it in their budget And it's stunning how eye opening it is that most of these kids don't even know how to balance a checkbook I can only imagine the lack of empowerment that some of these athletes have financially when they come to you Do you feel like you almost have to be a mentor or a true tour at first before you become a financial adviser And this goes across the spectrum of whether it's a young athlete or even a veteran because what we've seen is just over the course of time there really is a lack of literacy in this space And the problem is is that they don't even want to recognize it They don't want to acknowledge it They don't want to pursue it because listen finance and the handling of assets and all the different things that go on especially when you start getting into really complex situations with individuals with a lot of a lot of assets who are building a lot of wealth It's very very daunting So when you do educate them when you do help them become literate in this space it's extremely empowering to them And if you start with them at the beginning of their careers or when they're younger you can see it build over time and it's really impressive when an older athlete who you've worked with and mentored and helped educate over say 5 years ten years 15 years When they come to you and somebody in the locker room or somebody walks up to them after a game and presents them with the next Bitcoin they've already asked for the right documentation They've already asked the right questions They've already in a way done some of the preliminary due diligence and you can have these conversations as just say okay you know what I've actually given this individual the skill set to defend themselves to protect themselves to protect their wealth No you are the man Thank you so much for joining us And you give great advice about money I mean it's right in the name Vernon's capital advisers He's built right in the name so that's why you're very good at this Thank you so much sir You're welcome You all are very kind Well you should see lynch on a Saturday.

"So. This story arose on tuesday afternoon. That us soccer has offered identical contracts to both the us men and women On the surface you would look at that and say oh well the. Us would have been asking for equal pay and it appears as though they have achieved that they do not see it that way. No they don't they issued a tweet from their. Us national team he eh. So players association us pr stunts and bargaining through. The media will not bring us any closer to a fair agreement. In contrast we're committed to bargaining in good faith to achieve equal pay and the safest working conditions. Possible the proposal. That usf made recently recently to us does neither. Now here's where we have a problem. what i would say is knowledge vacuum. I don't know what was in that proposal. I don't know the ins and outs of the pause. meg From the athletic. Who just great on this she tweets. Us soccer just issued a statement on the us women's national team on us mnt cba's it states that usf has offered identical contract proposals today proposing single cbs structure with revenue sharing usf believes best way to achieve these important goals is by the us women's national team players association on the us ns tpa negotiating together. That's the men's association however this quote marks this is from us soccer if the players association's choose to continue to negotiate separately as they have to date us.

Whatever the cards are you want to write those outdoor type them out in evernote but if the suits are important make sure you include those like a h for ace of hearts ki.

Something like that. Of course record the player type. Like i said maniac fish tag lag. Recreational new player. Whatever you wanna say and make sure you use positional shorthand for For the positions right c. o. for cutoff bt and for button bb forbid blind once you do this a few times and you get some practice with the shorthand. You're going to become much better. And then you're shorthand notes might only contain like five quick lines. But that's going to be enough to take that hand history to flop zillah and really analyze your opponents ranges in their post flop

"He'll be eaten alive. And I was terrified because he is. Yeah. So after that incident, was he hospitalized? No, he was not. So we coincidentally had an appointment with a psychologist at the very next morning anyway. As I mentioned, we're very close family. The entire team there, including the BCB came in, everyone knows how close we are. They brought me out as soon. Jake went with his teacher, his teacher, actually, at the point came in and brought him to go get his bag and all this stuff. And the B cba came and pulled me aside privately with the principal and said, you know, there's certain things we're supposed to do here. Legally speaking, but we know you. And we've known you for years now because it had been the same DCA for I think two or three years. I had I was home. I had left I had been forced to leave my career. I was missing too much time between phone calls and needing to leave for emergency situations with him. You know, we had had a situation, the final straw for us when I left was my mother in law, my poor mother in law, and my mother used to alternate days picking him up off the bus. And my mother in law. It was her day. She was walking him home from the bus stop. In first grade. And the beginning of first grade, they were walking home from the bus stop. He wanted to do something. She said, let's go home and get a snack first. It wasn't what he had pictured in his head. So he lied down in the middle of the street and would not get up. And would not move, and she called me at work, you know, I'm 45 minutes away at my desk. In a meeting with a student, actually. While your child's lying in the middle of a road. Unable to move.

"We're gonna roll along with our division preview series. We have the afc south today but we had some big news in the nfl this past week. And we're gonna touch on some of those. And i think the biggest headline of all is the fact that we have now had two people correctly. Guess why we are doing the divisions in this order and listen. Those people have been contacted at this point and we are. We are sorting out. How are we going to split up the various prizes that they have earned mostly whether they want a bunch of junk mail to their house. But that's up to them. You can continue to send in your guesses it. It'll be like play at home and you can. I don't know you can reward yourself however you want we will give you a a shout out on the podcast. Maybe when this is all over I guess it correctly but are not among the to prizewinners but Yeah it's it's over long. National nightmare is over. Two people have discovered why we are doing the divisions in this order. It's amazing that people have gotten it almost before. I knew the reason that we were doing it. And i found out last week. So kudos to people who were not in any of the dozen production meetings leading up to this and still found out about the same type. Good job yeah. I think the guesses roldan almost simultaneously. The two people sent in the correct response in the same day and it looks like if one of the winners chooses. Well if they both choose to have something to them but one of the winners it looks like we could be shipping. Something overseas so really exciting developments here at the time. Qb podcast They're getting stickers or getting business cards maybe some surprises that we Dig up around the house that we want to get rid of but Yeah that's that's the big news. We almost don't have to do the rest of a show but we will anyway because we had Really some interesting developments last week is someone we knew or coming. And they didn't surprise us too much and that's just the way it goes but this is kind of the first year that the new. Cba is in place you know. Technically you was in place. Last year but cova year and and train casserole the different it's cetera et cetera. This is the first year we're kind of having somewhat normal training camps with this new. Cba effect that for all intensive purposes it removes the chance of an actual holdout. Correct me if i'm wrong I know you will. But essentially the way this works is the fines are now mandatory and they also can't be waived afterwards they used to be you get a fine but then once the contract was worked out team would waive the fine and in sort of a show of We're all friends here. But that's no longer possible. The fines are mandatory. And you get fined if you don't show up so that's why xavien showed up. We'll get to that in a second but That's also why maybe aaron rodgers didn't make the packers sweated out a little bit longer. Yeah the fines were raised in the new. Cba to fifty thousand dollars per day unless you..
Squalene, Squalane, What's the Story?
"As you can probably tell square lane has had a little bit of an identity crisis so let's start by setting the record straight squad lane and square lane are one in the same potato potato tomato tomato squad lane scaling as long as your pronunciation of choice ends with lane. You're talking about the same skincare ingredient. Now here's where things get convoluted that's because lane has what you can think of as a fraternal twin. Lean since this is a podcast will spell it out for you. That's s. q. U. a. l. e. n. e. square lean is naturally produced by the subconscious glands in our bodies along with triglycerides fatty acids and wax esters components of cba which helps hydrate and keep our skin barrier intact. Oh and by the way if you're not sure what a skin barrier is check out our episode on ceremonies anyway. Your body's production of squalene remember. That's with an e starts to slow down significantly after age thirty. That means your skin is less lubricated aka traded which can lead to dryness dullness in the appearance of wrinkling. So just slather on topical squalene. Right problem solved so fast. Here's dermatologist. Paul jared frank square. Lean is a great natural. Oil lipid found in the skin. But it's not always so useful in skin care products. Of course we want natural ingredients put into skin care products to help maintain the balance and moisture but the logistical storage and penetration factors of these natural substance is always so simple thus the invention of square lane with an a square lean and square lane are molecular quite similar and offer the same benefits but as dr frank alluded to square lane penetrates. The skin bar more easily and square lane is also much more chemically stable. Meaning it won't degrade when exposed to air or when used in skin care
WNBA Preview: Seattle's Dominance, Ionescu's Return, Rising Rookies
"So shantelle. The wb is about to begin. Its twenty fifth season on friday. You know every sports league has taken a pretty big hit the pandemic. what's your sense of the state of the wnba. As the twenty twenty one season gets set to tip off. Well i think there's a lot of ways to look at that question in terms of the on court product. It's better than ever. It is the toughest league in the world to get into in a typical year. There are one hundred and forty four spots. Twelve teams twelve roster spots. That's it but because of the new. Cba and salary cap numbers of teams are only going to carry eleven players this year. So we're looking at maybe one hundred and thirty eight one hundred thirty seven. Maybe one hundred thirty nine women in this league and so the on court product is amazing. What they're doing off the court their initiatives the social justice council. It's important you could make the case that they were a leading reason. Why senate seats flipped in georgia. They're really important. League twenty fifth year is now also falling in an olympic year. And they're going to be back in front of fans and it just feels like there's ton of excitement coming into this year and we've seen over the past year as viewership has declined and a lot of sports. More people are watching women's basketball than ever before more people are asking for coverage more people are tuning into the games. The ncaa tournament for the women had its best year yet. So i think there's a lot of excitement and momentum in women's basketball right now

Because of the kind of things dave roberts does. So i'm gonna day roberts. My club awesome and with that just completely off the wall going to go. I'm going to bring in crazy lane kiffin to round out my staff. He's just gonna tweet and just talk shit to everyone else.

"I think it's very easy to just say. Oh janke money easy It's not there's plenty of teams that a lot of money who don't do as nearly as well as the yankees but more importantly to do it. Brian cashman has done and to survive in that gig for twenty plus years in that the market with a good reputation still is a remarkable achievement and then tells you about his ability to kind of navigate that side of things as well. It's it's i think he's one of the more under executives in history the sport. That's a great one. I will go with a executive slash coach fingerprints on everything. Not who people might think. Because i'm not going. Bill belichick i will go gregg popovich either. I think george. I like break. Yeah as a coach as an executive but maybe most importantly as someone who is willing to take a stance on things he believes in his organization believes in and things that are that are really really important to His coworkers or his employees are his fan base his peers just his fellow human beings. I think he's he is startled and snapped at me a couple of times. But he's just a nominally kind and thoughtful person and he is just a elevate coach and again a lot of modern talent evaluation. What the spurs started to do in europe and internationally so gregg popovich. I've always found know. One of the great challenges in the front office is people can figure things out and then can look at data and learn things and one of the toughest things to do is to find that conduit if you will between the front office in the players You know thinking. I want to have someone who understands. Players that are scheduled players go through an early advocates for the players And so i'm gonna go curt flood. Second actually stay with saint louis. Great on as kind of my you know working in my as my player advocate. Someone who understands the players understands what they're doing understands what they're going through and can help keep the front office In some ways in line you know. I think there's a i think as both as front offices as well as media who has been influenced by front offices it a lot of ways Needs to stop referring to players assets human beings and and and this is the kind of guy i could could help remind the front office of that and also help Understand players better as opposed to just seeing them as assets or as sales on a spreadsheet. That's a great one can argue with that and again very propo- of what's going on right now all right. Let's see i'm gonna try to pull something out of thin air. I will go to the college ranks sand instead of taking anyone that i really didn't ever see doing anything..

"As we get ready to draft. We are going to pick four people that if you were starting organization. Today any sport doesn't matter don't have to specify you would want these four people to be involved in terms of getting the thing going getting it off the ground running it's Four people they could be coaches ex players players front office members whoever commissioners you want these people in the mix. You know what i'm saying. Is that make sense. It does but you're in trouble. i don't know if you'd like. I literally only follow baseball and sumo wrestling. I can name. I can name less than ten. Nfl players okay. This i can do this. It could be athlete. It could be a coach. Could be a. you're picking four people. And i'm saying that you're starting in organization so easy you don't need for you know former gm's use any mix of people and You can You can have the floor so you have the first pick. Alex pro whatever Including store yes and sumo wrestling. Yes okay i'm gonna start with branch rickey. Great one man. We're spoiled in saint louis to have the connection and get to hear a lot of the old archived audio jack buck talking to jackie robinson for two hours take halls from people. Yeah it's unbelievable Great one man. Great one what do you is there something to pinpoint about. I mean it's impossible to pinpoint one thing about branch. Rickey that would really strikes me as he was the first guy Think about having a pipeline of talent constantly feeding your big league teams opposed to constantly turning a roster if you will invent finding good players. He was the first guy really. Think about sny's signing young guys in finding out who's going to be good players as opposed identifying good players. The first person to identify who's going to be a good player and to think about things that way. He invented the scouting scale on the forefront of player development things like that i. I've always kind of wonder what he could do with modern tools. If you're not a great one right branch rickey off the board. This might just be flying too. Close to the sun. But i'm gonna go with marvin miller. Good that's fantastic choice especially with what's looming and especially with like the way things were always done right kevin. It'll be really special for so many people to see him go go into cooperstown albeit A year late and Unfortunately without without marvin. But marvin probably wouldn't have wanted to be a part of it anyway. So i'll go. Marvin miller and i'll know that things will be interesting and there'll be a lot of smoke breaks as well. That's good to me. Yeah that's great My second choice. I'm gonna go this. I'm sure there's going to surprise you with. Brian cash And have brian cashman. Be my general manager I think he's the most underrated general manager in baseball..

"Yeah they're on twitter game. Like i don't see we need is to stop the twitter play-by-play that'd be there's plenty of things. We need to change about twitter. Right man you're right but you're getting away from the the two paragraphs of what happened the seventh inning. We all just saw it You know by the story within the game. And i think we've seen A lot of beer's become really creative A lot of really good out but by getting away from that part of the repetitive. That's just the the standard game story. Start writing when someone scores new edit ear. Inn there during the late innings. And you have it ready for a deadline because you have to know a lot of the beat writers first of all. They're deadline some of them. Don't work for newspapers anymore. These people are beat writers for something like the athletic And they can take the time to really craft a story about the game as opposed to writing your standard newspaper Beat writer game story which are and they're boring and repetitive and just of a recounting of the facts. recount the facts. You got a couple of quotes ago. Habob you pitch pretty well. How'd you feel and he goes. I felt pretty well. And you you quote. And then that's it so i do think contents getting more interesting because of that and i think the availability of video A lot of the data. That's out there now. Even in the public sphere is allowing people to create more interesting and compelling content About what's going on. Am i do hope everybody gets shots. And we're in a position where where riders can get back in the clubhouse and kind of i think that helps them with their stories. oh yeah know but at the same time. I think it's good that we get away from some of the way we used to do things i always. I think it's fine to say l. That's how they've always done thing. That's fine because how they that. That's that's that means. A process has been developed and had been tested. And it's you know warm. But i think it's also find to say well. Why do they do it that way and find out if it's really the right way and to challenge those notions and so I think the fact that you're baseball media times has been kind of forced to challenge those notions by the situation. Where all in is a good thing. Yeah and you're seeing the cream rises to the top right like if you have been around for instance and and have relationships like we're going to see like you can tell for instance in saint louis like derek gould like the work that he's done that you don't even see inc because of what he was able to do this spring and last season right. It's like you put in the rap so that you know now you've got to kind of go through your whole arsenal. You need to rely on the relationships. You build the access that you have yourself. So as i say that for kevin goldstein is the story within the story for this year. A d. u. n. -ticipant that. You know it'll be largely the Upcoming negotiations looming over. Everything will be the fact that we still don't really know like all the rules for both. What right now for you kevin. Do you anticipate being for For this season's cycle the story within the story. I think there's two that really come to mind. I and one is when you talked about. We'll get to that in a second but the other one and it it it it. It upsets me to say this is..

"To do. It can make your front office better and in so Alexa it's really. It's a long way to go. Obviously some good things happen. You know obviously with command getting hired there's still a long way to go As far as seeing more Young black people at the top of front office executive level It's it's not in a good place. It's just in a better place. But yeah i think that it's it's you know something that just society in general has defied and that is the well. We do it this way. Because that's the way we've always done it right like if it's remedial perspective. It's like well every day at three o'clock pre pandemic on the clubhouse and you just stand there while the players ignore you because that's just what we've always done or like you know the pre-game show we've always formatted it this way just because we always have so to bring it now down onto the field Do you as a now someone. Back covering the game Encouraged at all that even if it was because of the pandemic in necessity last year Do you kevin goldstein. Think that there will be any positive discussion. Any maybe positive. Churn from all of the implementation of stuff Again a lot by necessity but but maybe we won't just do it the way we've done it because we've always done it that way and maybe we start to see some of that. I i'd hope so you know it's it's it's a real hard thing to do you know. The change in baseball is is not Is turning a cruise ship. It's not turning a bicycle It's a very very slow process and Like anything and i think like you know it's not just baseball like any business near the old business adage of no one ever gets fired for choosing. Ibm it's real easy you soon. You're still nielsen ratings. From power hilson books in two thousand twenty one and so young situation where i like said like a pre game. Show like this what we do. We introduced the game and we have the taped interview with manager. And then we take a call and then we say the starting lineups then we do a transition with the play by play. Guy them we go. I mean you know. it's that's how we do it. That's how we done it since one thousand nine hundred seventy three p. c. matt bolts is always forward forward forward most board that I'd so you're right. I mean it's hard to change things. And i think it's been interesting to see. I think some of the media especially written media Not in my world But more of just the pure beat guys you have gotten away from the classic game story at times and i think it's really good thing. We watched the game. We all know what happened. Unroll on twitter during the game..

"You're if you're in the middle of hope stand because you're showing up to work at a normal time nine o'clock and new putting in a full work day and then you're staying for the game You know then game starts at seven gay. Men's at ten welsby more realistic in these days. Ten fifteen ten thirty If you are a member of the front office who has game day duties. You probably walk now. Maybe eleven thirty right now at twelve fifty an hour day for some of these people during a home. Stand so yeah. It's an office. There's a there's a fridge with with with rotting leftovers in it. There's a coffee pot. That people gathered around and ruined rumors a water cooler. There's hr people it's an office. Kevin what would you say if somebody asks you what the climate of of working in a front office like. Because i think it's you know a reputation and think it's one that perhaps at least in recent history is is fair but that you know. In in sports there are cliques. There are certain types of people that are hired that are given opportunities. Especially i think that's something that has been paid attention to in baseball. But if someone were to ask you about that about the clicks that maybe are like cliques in any office that people would work or opportunities for people that generally have not maybe had opportunities. What would you tell them. Are things moving in the right direction in a different direction. Or what are your takeaways on on that front. After again. Spending time in houston. It's definitely like you said it's a well earned reputation It's it's very slow in that. In that case side of it hundred million. It's very much a a you know. Baseball front offices are overwhelmingly white guys. I mean the dishes on a level but that does not need old white guys except me a lot of younger analyst and computer programmers and things like that but the first part. It's it's it's it's white guys on a level that is certainly not mere any portion of our society anywhere and it's something that baseball is trying to change. I think some teams are being proactive and trying to take steps in and have done some things and those steps are good things But like anything that those steps are small and they're still very very very very long way to go And so you know. It's it's good to see you know. At least the the the car moving in the right direction but as far as making things. Riots barely out of the driveway There's there's you know it it's one of those situations and yeah it's it's a it's kind of a cultural issue By think teams. You know. I don't want to say every team. I think most teams want to have a more diverse staff. And i think you know a i think most of those teams beyond the importance of doing that kind of on a social level december. Pure baseball level. You know when. I ran pro scouting tried to have a very diverse staff of people of various ages ethnic backgrounds. Playing history notes with stuff like that. Just because i think that kind of diversity creates better thought and creates a more diverse opinions in more diverse thoughts about layers about the actual work involved in a front office. Help you make better decisions. And so you know beyond the importance of doing it could threatening.

Houston Texans' Deshaun Watson Could Lose Millions if He Sits Out the 2021 Season
"Okay. Let's start our. Nfl news with shawn watson. This thing is getting uglier. Who is it ever so they just let him go all right now just break up. Well he's got the no trade he just can't okay so as it appears to shawn watson is never gonna play for houston again obviously and if as it is also appearing the texans. Do not trade to sean here. We go with a holdout right so different numbers have kind of come out. Regarding just a huge losses that watson would incur. Okay so we're gonna try to go through this piece by piece the full scope of these consequences if he exercises his right under the cba and not playing twenty twenty one. So i if the two thousand twenty one off season has a mandatory minicamp and if to sean skips it he will be popped with a fine in the amount of ninety three thousand dollars. K secondly if the sean skips training camp he'd be fined fifty thousand dollars a day. Okay so alleged. Day day day day with forty days in camp and six mandatory days off. That's thirty four. Days that sean would miss at a total fine of one point. Seven million bucks crews k. Thirdly sean would be finding amount of the regular season game check for each preseason game that he misses so at a base salary of ten point five. Four million bucks. That's about six hundred twenty thousand dollars a game. If as expected the twenty twenty one season has three preseason games. He would lose another one point. Eight six million bucks okay. So totaling up for the entire offseason including training camp and preseason to sean would incur just over three and a half million dollars in fines if he does not show up. Now if the sean then skips the season and if the nfl like they've been throwing around are going to be rolling seventeen games for the regular season. He'd lose another just over eleven million dollars in base salary on top of that calculators out guys because this is just racking up skipping the season would also allow houston to recover to sean signing bonus allocated for twenty twenty one. That's at five point. Four million bucks in money that he would have to basically just give right back so you do the math correctly. Skipping twenty twenty one would be total financial loss of over twenty million dollars for him

Grinding away at the setup the divisions temporary realignment there grinding away at the transition rules. All of this stuff and you know basically people have been telling me it's endless. Zoom calls trying to figure it out and the players in the league decided that they're not going to touch their ask ro. They said they weren't doing that. But in order to to a greater deferments they said we consider certain things one was not this upcoming season but next season which is twenty one twenty two extra five hundred thousand dollars on the cap. Another five hundred thousand a year later and the league wasn't willing to go for that. I know they suggested compliance buyouts but as long as the players didn't have to pay for them and the league wasn't going for that. I think that one thing that also had been talked about was could individual players. Say yes we're willing to defer even if the whole group didn't agree to it but that was way too complicated and it didn't go anywhere so they didn't go anywhere on the financials and now they're you know they're grinding away. All the other stuff taxi squad. How big the is going to be if the ross twenty five people. How does that affect the cab house. The realignment gonna work first. Minnesota was in the pacific and then saint. Louis was in the pacific. Minnesota was out and then they were talking about saint louis and minnesota going to the pacific and dallas going into the central division. Apparently dallas has said. You know we'll do whatever but they laugh the pacific a few years ago to get back into that that central time zone so they're happy With doing that. I know the players were hoping to vote end of the weekend maybe beginning of next week and the league sort of middle towards end of next week. I think that's what everyone's kind of aiming for so as you mentioned off the top. They're the latin packing that you mentioned that they're not touching the financial some conversation about it. And will you do this if we do that. But ultimately that remains the same and they move onto the return to play. All the protocols involve is this the rare case. And we'll do this all under the umbrella of the current incarnation of this. Nhl goes back to. Oh four zero. Five and bob good now and the salary cap etcetera. Is this the first case that we've seen where the nhl pa dug in its heels. Didn't give in didn't budge and one. Here's why i'm not giving you a yes sooner or later. This bill is going to get paid. I think this generation of players could say yes we won. We stood strong. We agreed to a deal. We didn't move from the deal. Though thing that the commissioner is right about from what he said publicly is that it's a fifty fifty deal yup and at some point in time the bill has to be paid and the biggest issue. The owners have is cash flow. This is why some of them are really upset. Cash flow is going to be down in the league. Because there's going to be no fans in the building. This year will not be fifty fifty. It's going to tip towards the players. Probably the most ever. It's going to tip towards the players and the escrow that's going to be collected is in no way going to be equal what's going to be owed. Yup it's possible. After this year the players are gonna. Oh the owners more than a billion dollars as a matter of fact depending on who you locked talk to. It's not just possible. It's likely i'm just being careful. 'cause i'm getting my math from everywhere else and i haven't sat down and done it myself. But it's likely that they're going to owe them more than a billion dollars and the problem. Is that the schedule of that. Pay is slower than the owners would like. So there's gonna be some cash flow issues so they're unhappy but what it means is. Is that the cap is not going to go up. Maybe for the entirety of this. Cba yup so that affects the players and the other thing is at some point in time. This money is going to become do. And what's that going to mean like their owners right now. Who are saying their concern. Is that this six year deal. There's a time where it gets triggered to seventh year if the losses are at a certain amount and they will be so after seven years the players are still gonna hold the owners money and that's going to become part of the next cba and what that's gonna mean and this might send us all into retirement. Jeff is that six or seven years from now there's gonna be one hell of being negotiated all because the owners are gonna come into. Its saying you owe us hundreds of millions of dollars and the players are going to say well we think part of it. Some of that should be forgiven worried about this. This is a long term thing. But i can tell you the owners are thinking about it now and the league is thinking about it now so the only reason. I say it's not unequivocal. Yes for the players is that there are some players playing now who are going to be hugely affected by this. What was the line that you used on me on hockey central. Oh this is Travis ajax sang jack hughes. Yeah you're going to pick up this bill and that's definitely part of this so i think the current players. It's a win the guys who won't be playing in six or seven years. It's a win but the guys who will be it's not a win historically though is just as an aside. I mean bob. Good no talked about this in the four. Oh five negotiation salary caps always pit player versus player. Because you define a pie. Everyone fights for their piece of it so it shouldn't come to any surprise that again. This is the players association. Saying you know what if anyone's going to get stuck with the bill here. It's going to be the kids. The rookies amongst all the players that are capped. And everybody is the rookies triple capped. You know there's a team salary cap. There's an individual players salary cap and there's a rookie salary cap as well. This is the history. This is the history of Of the of the nhl or and happens in in every sport is always the guys that are coming in like. Listen shane right. Hasn't played a single game in the nhl. He's affected by this decision. Yes absolutely and you know if go back. Fifteen years. The highest paid players in the nba or the picks glen robinson number one. Pick think nine hundred nine ninety five sixty nine million and the people in the league were like we're stopping this. The veterans are said. This is crazy so they came up with the nba rookie salary cap. You look at the nfl. The quarterback so used to be taken to the top of the draft. Anybody got taken to the top of the draft huge deals. The veterans said. We're putting a stop to this and they did. That's the way it works and it's not just like that in sports there's unions all over the world that do this kind of thing they take care of the current worker at the expense of the future. One it's not unusual and that's exactly what happened here sooner or later. This bill is going to become do okay so you talked about how this to the grind time right now in the nhl in the players association trying to get this thing hammered outs I'm curious about a couple of things here on vaccines in a second But in the summer players were allowed to opt out. Now is a much different time. We didn't know as much about covid. Nineteen as we do now. We knew the we are heading into unknown. But was the bubble entire landscape. Can we just didn't know there were questions. And there were certain risks as some players opted out in. Everyone said no problem we understand. How much is opt out an issue right now boy. That's a great question. I think we could see some retirements. Yep i think the other thing is how comfortable do some people feel like playing if you watch the news and don't live in a cave or read the news. We are two or three months away from the vaccine. starting to have a real positive effect on society. We probably won't have full fans until next season. Dr fauci said a week ago. The next league to begin its season with full fans will likely be the nfl in september but were getting closer however these next two months. They're going to be ugly painful
Light flare spotted in black hole merger
"Scientists using Celtics Vicky transient facility may have sputtered a light-flare it's associated with a black hole merger. Now, if confirmed, it will be most surprising is black holes and emerges and only dot to the electromagnetic spectrum. So where did the lively come from?

There are a number of different environments in which the system to black holes could formed and the disc of guests around supermassive black hole is one of them.

Seattle Kraken: NHL announces name of 32nd franchise
"These story of the week the Seattle thirty two's have a name. They are the Seattle cracking before we drill down and getting some of the. Pacific says a Sandy Atlantic about this. How important was the events of this week for Seattle for the NHL? Like how big a deal is this for the League? It's a huge deal and first of all. It was a fun topic Jeff. Life is hard for people right now. And that was a fun couple of hours. The reveal the video, the look at the Jersey. The name like whether people like the name or didn't like it. They were kind of laughing like Whoa. That's really off the board and I know you don't like it. Because of the nicknames that can come from it, but I love it. It's different. It's different for hockey. It's a step out of the. The normal, it's bold. It's it's a change. It's a try it something new, and I think hockey badly needs that. There were a couple of interesting things I've found out in some conversations number one when they were talking about the Jersey with the people from Adidas one of the things they were saying is we have to imagine what it would look like to lift the Stanley Cup? In this Jersey we can't think that it's going to. To look terrible to lift the Stanley Cup in this Jersey and I liked the Jersey. I liked that way of thinking i. think that's very big. The other I heard that was interesting, was that they chose the name crack and I, and then they went about the identity, the logo and the Jersey and the like the story line of the cracking, and there were some people who heard the name and they were like, are you? You, sure about this, is this really a good idea? And then they started to see the logo and the identity behind it, and they bought in and a lot of times when expansion teams come in. They won't reveal the name the logo end the Jersey at the same time they'll do maybe name and logo at once and Jersey later. This was a win because they did all three at once and I think that's sold people. I think they had to do it that way. And I I think you're right and to the point like we've talked about before I, wanted sasquatch. Works on a whole lot of levels, but again as I pointed out on this podcast before I've realized, and I've been dragged kicking and screaming into this realization that not everything is for me, and that's okay now. I don't want to I gotTa WanNa shoot an Arrow and then paint a circle around it after it lands I. Don't WanNa. Be That Guy Oh. Yeah I, liked it all along cracking his great. Oh a homerun tape measure, but at that reveal. I didn't hate it. Like I love the colors I love you collars look great. The colors are great. The logo looks great. I can get used to crack in and the one. You're think is a good one. It is different. It is distinct and the one expectation that I think we all have a bow. Seattle at this point is that everything they do is going to be new is going to be progressive is gonNA surprise a lot of people whether it is the name which is very nontraditional, whether it's the first you know green arena climate pledge arena. Everything they do is going to be different. We expect that they're hiring policies progressive the way that they are going to do business as progressive I. Just hope that it doesn't stop now I. Don't think that it does but what does do Elliot selfishly since I have conceded sasquatch. Bang the drum for different colored ice for Seattle Oh my God. I knew you're GONNA. All all our producer I wrote down actually I got to tell you I wrote down. When does jeff come up with the different colored? Ice Oh my God yeah. I'm telling. Pretty, it'd be this early. It will put it this way Jeff. If one team's going to do it, it's going to be this one well. They WANNA. They're promoting. They have the green arena, so do green ice here you go. Here's your chance. I'd love to see if the NHL allows this you know. It reminds me a lot of the raptors. When the raptors came in new, there were a lot of people didn't like raptors and I remember. John Bits of doing an interview on the Fan with Bob McCowan and John. biddle said Bob. What do you think of the name and he goes Bob? Said I hate it and John biddle said good. That means that you're not in our target audience so I! Don't care what you think about it. And the other thing, too, is you talk about the team? Look at their twitter feed now that we have a name or strategizing all the ways to draft your favorite player. Yeah, like there are people in the league. Telling me I'm sick of these guys already sold. The rivalries are building. Yes, rivalries are building so the other two Jeff I I'd heard was. I heard the amount of meetings over the small details were unreal. The color of the is how many is you know I didn't realize I saw the video. When you look at the logo, the S has tentacle through it. like that black line is the tentacle of the cracking, and there was one person who told me that They weren't so sure about this until they saw that video and I have to say identify with that. When I saw the video and saw that that's what that black line was supposed to be. I thought that was really cool. What are the things about the whole reveal by? Seattle is the security around at the secrecy around. It the lack of leaks. I thought for sure that by the morning of the announcement it would be out there and confirmed by somebody I'll tell you the one thing that I learned from one of maybe if not my favorite movie of all time jaws. Is this Don't show the shark. Secret that movie is they don't show the shark until much later on. Don't show the shark and the one thing that Seattle did in this entire process is. They didn't show the shark like sure. There was a temptation there to extend the metaphor. Show the shark, but they didn't do it. Even in that video as everybody is going through this pruder's style frame by frame by frame, trying to look for clues I gotta give it to Seattle Man. They didn't show the shark at all. One of the big conversations I heard after they decided the name was. What's the Mascot GonNa look like. Well and that's when you get the rivalry about DETROIT WITH DETROIT. Yes, it looks too much like a traditional octopus. It won't. There's no way it will. No of course not, and they also said like the Jersey, the crack and has to look. Not like a WIMP, it can't be a wimpy cracking I. Don't know enough about mythological creatures. I'm not sure there can be a wimpy cracking. Does it exist I? Doubt it every movie I've ever mccracken. They're pretty nasty, but they definitely talk about that. We can't have a soft cracking. So the jerseys were revealed the branding is revealed and Tim Leiweke, who's a CEO of the Oak View Group was on hockey central with us. The day of the announcement and he let something slide. Let something slip. That was pretty interesting. We spent more time going back and look at the Metropolitans. In the fact, they won the Stanley cow, so we spend a lot of time looking at that history and tradition. I won't spill all the beans, but I'll tell you. There's a third and Fourth Jersey coming. Eventually wore on her that legacy in that tradition. Hundred Seventeen team. Of course when the won the Stanley Cup I would imagine that if they're winking at history that hard, and I think that they will. That will probably see Abana raising on opening night while you're going to do something special rate. I think they'll do a number of the special things on opening night I would imagine that would be one of them. Yes, and you know a nice touch too here. We are here here. He goes, SEATTLE. Here's here's a million ideas here on this podcast. HAP Holmes was the goaltender for that Seattle team homes played on a number of Stanley Cup, champions real good goaltender born in Aurora in the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame, died relatively young I think it is early fifties in Florida, but he wore a baseball cap. I think it might have been the first goaltender in the NHL to ever wear a baseball cap. It would be nice if they did something with HAP Holmes and abate. I don't know what it is I'm just doing this off the top of my head, but if someone is wearing a hap-. Maybe it's whoever the goaltender is for. The opening ceremony wears a HAP, Holmes baseball hat that would be a nice touch for the. Hockey nerd like me out there. WHO DIDN'T GET SASQUATCH well? One thing I looked up was to Seattle have any retired numbers and they don't. Remember when Ottawa came in had an old retired number. Frank Finnegan, and they honored it. But Seattle, I can't sense that they do. Okay, so now. Seattle's job is to make this team to create this team out of nothing not unlike what Vegas went through most recently. Do. They have a friend in the flat Cap Seattle All I. We talked about this last week. I, think they're a huge winner. In the new CBA their job just became. If easier is the right word, but I they gain some real advantages and. A few teams have said that to me that the mistakes Vegas they were going to avoid them now. Circumstances have dictated that someone's going to have to make them, and it's a huge advantage for them. There's no question from a financial point of view Elliott. We just mentioned the flat cap here second ago. Given the economic realities NHL NHL is going through now, and we'll go through in the next couple of seasons I know. I opened up by saying how important is Seattle team, but I'll ask it again from an economic point of view to this team, not just become where the more important teams in the NHL team thirty two new infusion of money. Well there's no question that that's true and new infusion of enthusiasm to the Batman, and daily made it very clear and their negotiations with the players that ownership cash flow was very important. They got expansion money that players don't share in from Vegas and there were some owners who thought they didn't get enough. In terms of the system stuff, edgy arbitration that they wanted, but one of the things they could be sold on was that they've expansion money coming in, and that's their win, and that's cash, so there's no doubt that Seattle's big for a lot of reasons, and the other thing too is even before this. There were people who were predicting. Predicting that Seattle would be a top ten revenue team in the NHL. They're gonNA need that. They're merchants already hot negative. That's one of the reasons. It didn't get out because it's not ready at right me, you can order stuff, but I learned through this process that one of the ways that logos and names get leaked Jeff is that you have to share them with vendors or you presale them to vendors and things like that. They didn't do it this time. They didn't do it this time day. Kept it all close Alright talk, congratulations, seattle you now have a name in the NHL has team

All about Section 230: What It Does and Doesn't Say
"Hi everyone welcome to this week's special episode of sixteen minutes on the news, our show where we cover the headlines from our vantage point in tech, and covered tech trends, offering analysis frameworks, explainers and more I'm sewn. All your host and today's episode is special, not just because at three times sixteen minutes long, but this is our very first time on the show now thirty two episodes in bringing on a special outside guest. Our topic is section two thirty of the Communications Decency Act, which makes sure. Sure that interactive websites are not liable for their users content as their distributors, not producers of content, and so we also cover the recent news around twitter and the president's tweets, and the subsequent Executive Order Unquote Preventing Online censorship all from this week, which is also all bang out against the broader, more profound cultural context of George Floyd. Minnesota and way beyond and this episode we do a deeper dive on the technology and Policy Aspects of platforms and content moderation, including an explainer on the evolution. Evolution of section, two thirty, and all the key nuances of the debates around it and content moderation to understand, my special guest is Mike Mas- nick, founder and editor in chief of tech dirt, which is a leading tech news and analysis website and my longtime go to source for these topics he also by the way, recently launched new section, dedicated to tech and covid coverage as well as a new form with different voices, called the greenhouse, which focuses on tricky tech topics and lots of the. The trade offs involved like privacy and so on you can find both of those at Tech. DIRT DOT COM, so that's the INTRO and why? This is a special three x episode of sixteen minutes. Let me now kick things off by asking Mike. Since the premise of the shows, the tease apart. What's hype? What's real and to break down and explain what section to thirty does and doesn't say especially since the Broader Communications Decency Act Mike has been around since one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety six. The laws actually very short and very simple and very straightforward, and I should note that the Communications Decency Act itself did have. Things that I did, but all of that was determined to be unconstitutional. So the only thing that survives is section two thirty. There was a big lawsuit ACLU versus Reno in the late nineties, and that throughout most of the communications, Decency Act is unconstitutional. The thing that remained was to thirty so what section to thirty does it really does two things, and they're somewhat related, and they're both incredibly important to the functioning of the modern Internet the first thing that it does is it puts the liability on the person actually violating the law, so if someone goes onto. Onto a website and says something that is defamatory or otherwise violates the law, the liability for that action belongs on the person who is speaking and not the platform or site that is hosting that content. The second thing that it does is that it says if a website chooses to moderate its content or anything that is put on the site. Then it is not liable for those moderation choices I'm so glad you're bringing that up because this is the number one thing I wanted to start with which is the flip side of it, not just the protection. Protection, but the fact that they can moderate whatever they want, so can you actually break down Mike? What does that mean so where it came from? Which I think is important is to give sort of the history very quickly is that there were series of lawsuits in the early nineties that tried to hold Internet services that had moderated some content, and the were defamation cases effectively brought up the most famous one is stratton oakmont versus prodigy, and as a little fun aside. Stratton oakmont was a financial firm that was immortalized in the movie The wolf of Wall. Wall Street, that's a fun fact. Yes, and Stratton. OAKMONT got upset. Because people in prodigies message boards were accusing the company of being up to no good, and so they sued prodigy, and a court said that prodigy was liable for the libellous statements, because prodigy positioned itself as a family friendly service that would moderate content, and because it moderated some content to try and take down cursing or porn anything that it felt was inappropriate that anything it left up according to the judge, it was now liable for as if it had written that content itself and that. FREAKED OUT! People in Congress namely the time to members of the House Chris Cox. A Republican and Ron Wyden a Democrat, and they put together section to thirty to say wait, that's crazy. If a website wants to moderate content to create for example, a family friendly environment, it shouldn't get sued for the content that chose not to take down. And so that section of CBA two-thirty is designed to make sure that any website can moderate content how it sees fit in good faith to present the content in a way that meets with the goals of the service
Jeff Passan on MLBPA's Return-To-Play Proposal
"The negotiations between Major League Baseball and the Players Association to start the two thousand twenty season, Continue Jeff Passan reported. Reported last night that the player Ford a counterproposal on Sunday, in which they suggested a one hundred and fourteen game season from June thirtieth to October. Thirty first, which Jeff wrote is expected to be immediately dismissed by the League. The union remained steadfast. The players should receive their full prorated salaries. The Union did suggest possible salary defers than acknowledgment by the players that amid the coronavirus, pandemic and unrest. Flow issues could prove problematic for the owners The players proposal also included the idea of an expand class for two years major league. Baseball's proposal suggests one year postseason that goes from ten teams to fourteen a salary advance of one hundred million dollars split among players during the second spring training, additional commitments to players, wearing microphones in the field and other broadcasts enhancement, and there was an offer to hold events such as an off season, all star game or Homerun Derby to generate additional revenue. This was a hopeful Development Sean doolittle, the nationals. Reliever tweeted out that the Washington major leaguers will provide salary relief to minor leaguers. Who saw their salaries cut last week? Covers baseball for ESPN, and Jeff we just went through the details of your report from last night. I think the most important question this morning is what's next? It's a great question buster because I think what's next is going to be the most important element of this entire thing in that is. What's the reaction of owners after the unions first proposal? And I think you did a great job in your Sunday, notes column of pointing out the fragility of this on account of there, being owners who don't WanNa play in two thousand and twenty. If this proposal angers the the League side owners in particular enough where what is a relatively small block of honors, now suddenly starts to gain a little bit of political traction in trying to convince some of the more moderate owners that this is a lost cause, and it's just not worth playing the two thousand twenty season. Then I think they're actually in trouble, but if if the. door being cracked open for furrows which it was done in this proposal leads to something more substantive and productive. I think something can come together on relative quick order because that's that's how it has to like. If they want to play this year, something needs to get this week and it's on owners right now to come back and really facilitate that after the players offer. Deaf I'm glad that they're talking I. Mean it's a good thing that they're talking because there's been so much time that's passed in the last Three and a half years since the CBA of two thousand sixteen, in which they haven't been talking, but my God they are so far apart. It's incredible to me. The what this is shutdown lake March twelfth thirteenth, and yet it still feels like to use the football comparison. It's like we're at the one yard line. There's about fifty eight seconds to go and there ninety nine yards of field ahead of them when you're talking about the financial issues. Either the safety protocol, and then the challenge of pulling everything together which I'm sure you're hearing the same thing from general managers. That I am like this is not something you can just execute overnight. No in regarding that latter part I assume that that they have known for awhile now. What the expectations are going to be and I I know some general managers that I've talked with said they're. They're trying to get their facilities in order, so you know secondary, club houses and a lot of the things that are in the health and safety protocol. They've at least been trying to start, but let's let's look at the logistics of getting everybody around the country right now. between coded and. And and the civil unrest that's going on travels knock going to be particularly easy and getting people from place to place city city. You don't even know where you're. Joe It half the time when it comes to either get into the city or are you going to be your Spring Training Facility? I mean these these are all open questions right now. but yeah I I would say instead of the one yard line. You've got like both sides in their tunnels right now or in their. I mean that that is how far apart they are, and and the biggest question to me has been.

"The big news yesterday in the NFL in terms of what happens going forward should the schedule B. as it's supposed to be about you again they say it's going to they're offering the promise never full regular season full post season the vote happened yesterday to basically that it was a rubber stamp as we was gonna happen to allow the two more playoff record about your team plans to use a seven seed in each conference which means they'll be three games a wildcard Saturday three games while card Sunday including one on Nickelodeon by the way summer Sanders this text me back she's all in team summer will get you in the mood for that game absolute done but then the question becomes is that the most significant change what happened yesterday or is what happens in the regular season the more significant thing because by adding that extra wild card they've eliminated the two seed and the benefits that go with it because now only one team gets the bite each conference the number one seed and remember Kansas city got a by by being the two seed last year and they got to host the AFC champs of game because the ravens lost right to the Tennessee Titans so in your opinion what's going to be more impactful the idea of a seven seed and maybe them find a way to get to the Super Bowl which hasn't happened since Super Bowl forty seven or the flight to make sure you hold that number one seed down the stretch without question extra team in the playoffs for me extra team in the playoffs because we see wild card teams win the Superbowl it can happen just get in you can't win the Super Bowl if you're not the playoffs yeah I I think it's it's much more likely on the other outlook while Khartoum island wild card teams as the league as presently constructed right hand women anymore I think when we the last time we saw it was really back before the new CBA taking it back in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve when the effects really started to seep in I don't think with the current constraints teams constructed like that having to deal with this can win a super walk I'm with you on this one so again well greeted they will fight tomorrow yes I am a hundred percent on this because not only that but it make sure that you have meaningful games played unless you have a four game lead right right right it does I know he's lost all seventeen games this season and eighteen weeks next year with a seventeen game season because again the seventeenth game with the new CBA won't start till twenty twenty one C. right price all have a regular sixteen game regular seasons over seventeen weeks the amount of such significant football that's going to be played down the stretch to make sure you hold on to that number one seed I think it's going to be buying a whack and it's still one of the great things that last week when you have all those division games in there but to me as I I again I speaking from a former player there is way more teams involved now they could have a chance to get into the playoffs and I'm all
