"The briefing on monocle 24 high on the list of things and newly elected government does not want to have to tell the citizens of a wealthy and orderly nation is that they'll have to switch their lights off of an evening. Australia's new energy minister Chris Bowen has found himself making just such a request of the 8 million people of New South Wales, asking them to avoid using electricity for two hours every evening if they can. It follows the suspension of Australia's main wholesale energy market after a surge in prices. Let's get the latest from Canberra with the Saturday papers Karen Middleton, Karen, good evening. I did want to ask first, has the same request been made of the nation's capital. Enclosed as it is by New South Wales, but an awful lot colder at this time of year than Sydney is. I was going to say Andrew, I'd be worried more worried if they told me to turn the heater off this in the last couple of months. At this point, yeah. Look, interestingly, the capital is in the Australian capital territory and the government here has a objective of 100% renewable energy and in fact it's sort of almost got to that now. And so the ACT market is a little bit insulated from the problems that are going on in New South Wales, but really the entire east coast of Australia, the energy market that reaches from Queensland all the way down south. Is affected by the problems we're having in the market. Western Australia interestingly operates on a separate grid and has a gas reserve system for domestic gas use. Which is helping it in this situation. But the problems we're having on the east coast are very complicated relating to a number of different factors. And the result of that you've just discussed is sort of the consequences of a sudden cold snap very early in winter that wasn't expected. As I'm sure one Sydney side at least has muttered to themselves as they sit at home in the dark. However, Australia is a colossal exporter of energy resources, coal, LNG, et cetera how is it possible that Australia finds itself in this situation? So as I said, it is a confluence of circumstances that are a bit strange that have come together at one time. We are still quite reliant on coal fired power, but we are seeing a lot of those coal fired power stations becoming very old and needing a lot of upkeep. So we have this combination of scheduled maintenance taking those powers, some of those power stations offline. And unscheduled incidents where maintenance is, well, power stations are breaking down. So they're getting old and the owners of those generated generates are not wanting to pay enormous amounts of money for upkeep on old infrastructure that we all know is sort of phasing out. So there's a problem with that. Normally we would have fall back on gas, but the war in Ukraine is seeing the market from gas change quite a change quite dramatically because people don't want to buy gas from Russia. So there's a huge market suddenly for Australian gas. The price has gone through the roof and a lot of Australian gas providers have long-term contracts anyway. So extracting some of the gas for the domestic market is proving complicated and expensive and that's where I mentioned the arrangements in Western Australia are separate from the east. On top of that, we are transitioning to renewable energy, but we haven't got enough renewable energy in a dispatchable form with battery use to fill the gap. So we've just got the situation where a range of things have come together, including this very cold weather, that mean that we don't have enough energy. Now at the moment, we're not actually seeing blackouts in Sydney or anywhere else. So people aren't really sitting in the dark or a lot of people have turned their power down and turned off appliances as requested, but we haven't yet seen blackouts and hopefully won't, but they can't tell us when the takeover of the spot market that the government, the government regulator initiated in the last couple of days we will end. And when the cold snap will end. This is obviously a large and unwelcome test for the new federal government of Anthony albanese. And I know this is a hypothetical question for which apologies, but is it possible to sort of assess how different his response has been to how his predecessor Scott Morrison noted coal enthusiast might have responded. I think it's not easy to say how they would have their response to this to an immediate crisis would differ but you can certainly assist their response in the medium and longer term and certainly the new government is a greater advocate of the transition away from fossil fuels to renewable energy and is arguing that had we made that transition sooner had we had greater certainty in our energy policy and on climate action generally over the past 9 years that the previous government was in office. They say we would be in a different position now and we wouldn't have faced the crisis at all. Now the old government now in opposition is saying the problem is that the Labor Party now in government is pushing renewables too quickly and that they can't make up the shortfall. So take your pick who you believe, but really we do know it is a fact that the previous government did take a long didn't act on climate change and didn't implement an energy transition policy. Now whether that would have absolutely prevented something like this is not clear and it's not really clear whether they're responses with different dramatically. But it's very hard for either side in government.

To suggest that they actually can do this for you. Those are the sorts of questions that you want to be asking. You'll mortgage. But what I would say is beware. Going directly to the bank, because we said this many times throughout history podcast, but we'll just double down on the first principle here that the bank line of you the best product I've got, and I went necessarily some people within banks will do this so I'm not generalizing the specifics, but as a general business principle.

Originally started as Mogi breaking business did yes, that was my original. Original qualifications and Chris Bowen referenced you that. At the National Press Club breakfast. Yeah, it's the the the the lead story on the Fina Review of that day when we're dividing negative gearing. Mortgage breakout. That was what I also want to to let. People know that code is a of changes that have been happening. Around. Digital identification and digital processing a mortgages, so we are seeing more and more banks and lenders adopt. What we call lie. Doxycycline is one of the brain knives at had, but effectively it's an encrypted signature. That has been in in terms of residential spice and and a lot being tested in court, and holds up some of the commercial wet signature stuff not yet, but certainly in residential land and in. An insane agreements. These digital signatures will become more and more prevalent in a court of law and develop contracts, so we're saying mortgage contracts. Now being able to be issued with digital signatures. Were saying identification programs which are getting better around. Because, it's part of the chi-wah now you'll client requirements under those subjects. So, what does that mean well for many many years brought? We've been handling people from overseas with being. We handle people all around the area you know we sort of submit around fifty million amounts in in lending. The moment, so you can sort of understand. that. Whereas in the past, a lot of people wanted to have a face to face meeting. In this Kobe world was saying that you know we've got a really Dan here. That normally has forty seven people in it.

Transacting through encryption of supporting documents and all of these movements and and uploading. Documents onto platforms that are encrypted and that he's getting better and better so what we have noticed through cavities digitalized age is really moving quickly into mortgages. We've already saying it. And a year ago, we had. We had picks up on the podcast picks the. Digital conveyancing? That's going on, so we're catching up to what's happening in the UK where all todd did you live with? The world is moving digital, and so if you're thinking that well, I leaving Darwin.

New opportunity to boost Indonesia-Australia economic ties - The Jakarta Post
"Few international problems in the post world war. Two era have proved difficult for our nation as development of friendly policy towards indonesia. Just think about it. Jakarta's annexation of west papua in nine hundred sixty to the attempted coup d'etat and successful counter-coup by the indonesian army that was nineteen sixty five the invasion of as. Taymor seventy five. The dili massacre ninety. One the east team or mission in ninety nine. And who can forget the controversies over terror. Attacks live cadillacs bullpens successive wives of boatpeople this spying revelations and drug trade and of course those executions so has president jarkko daito or jacuzzi or jacoby as he's known has. His visit marked a new era in australia. Indonesia relations this week to cowie was only the second indonesian leader to address a joint sitting of parliament and he came to camera bearing a gift. He's approval of the trade deal between our two countries. Greg feely is associate professor of indonesian politics at the australian national university's college of asia and the pacific and diming kingsbury is professor international politics at deakin university in melbourne. greg damian. Welcome back to our in. Thank you now damien. Does that you kelly visit this week. Does that maka a dramatic breakthrough in australia. Indonesia relations look it's a really positive sign and it does mock an improvement in relations but i don think in itself comprises an entirely new relationship. It's just a step in the right direction. Okay so the the relationship still presumably dogged by bitterness and suspicion but it was obvious support and even warmth towards education from both sides of politics gregg fairly. Yes that's right i think The y.`all would characterize it is the jacobi visa was building on the breakthrough which is the comprehensive economic partnership agreement. That was signed early last year. And what saw with dakota's visa was. He's personal preparedness and preparedness. He's government to really put its white behind the agreement. I think a lot of people think the agreement in pie terms is very good but the question is canopy implemented properly. Can the red type be cleared away in indonesia. Can we persuade australian businesses to invest more Generously in indonesia and i think the jacoby visa guy very positive signs for that still a lot of things to done for that The potential of that agreement to be realized but it was really good. Move in that direction. Again it's been said that. The many lingering suspicions profile in jakarta indonesians still resent l leading role insecure in a team os independence because it was more than twenty years ago. Yes i think One of the ironies here he said indonesia now has very good relations with east t- more and he's teamer leaders Fighted in fact when i go to jakarta and the strata is still has this legacy of suspicion towards indonesia. I think you have to back. Partly in history this great saints vulnerability that Many asians feel that logic countries or large countries around them at trying to split up their country to conduct. Bulkin is it and the ace taymor. Even though he's team always not part of the original borders of the dutch colony. Die still feel that as team will confirmed that Other countries have these designs upon the country and upon its unity and after his team. More focusing shifted to papa. This strategy may still want to divide papua dining. You've written a lot about west papua and at the heart of the standoff in two thousand and six paul showed that something like seventy five percent of australian supported independence for the former dutch colony. This why the indonesians are uneasy about estrada's position. He certainly one of the issues in the makeup of mistrust and complexity in the relationship There's there's been longstanding depths in jakarta's to either strang government doesn't do more to acquire pro-separatist Sentiment in australia. They believe the particularly the ngo sector has played a role in stirring up separatist sentiment in west. Papua and there is Continuing concern that australia has too much of a focus particularly on eastern indonesia which is also the poorest part of the country. Well how then do we bridge. These divides greg. I mean to. What extent is this new free. Try deal. This is the so-called indonesia australia comprehensive economic partnership agreement. Ten years in the making to what extent does that he'll these divisions. I don't know that it heals the divisions poseidon. I think many of the the list of things you you sit out at the beginning of the interview. I think we have always had the potential. I knew things like that to occur but one of the consistently underperforming parts of the bilateral relationship has been the economic ties and so this comprehensive agreement will hopefully see much more economic activity between the two countries and that in itself might provide some kind of deepest ability but if the economic relationship expand by site thirty to forty percents in the next few years diamond. Wouldn't the free try deal really mocking important development for the relationship a look. There's no question that it's an important step in in in strengthening relationship. This guy is back to what gareth evans was talking about in the nineteen eighties. Where he said we needed to add ballast to the relationship unbalanced. He meant if we can get a strong economic relationship between australia and indonesia implies than the rest of it will follow behind because there will be a an upfront primary interest in preserving the economic relationship. And that's always been a difficulty. In the relations destroy and strength companies have invested in indonesia but not to a great extent. The head found difficulties. There this free trade agreement certainly opens up more opportunity for investments and tried but again and again as greg has alluded to. I think the question will be. How much strategies is to take out this opportunity and whether or not they say the the problems of doing business in indonesia over combat is free trade agreement whether or not there's going to be impediments to a greater degree of engagement. My guests greg. Feely from new in camera and damien. Kingsbury from deacon in melvin. And here's a little fun fact. This is according to the australian this week. It was chris. Bowen the library from benca podcast on iran and between the lines. It was chris bowen in his shirt who walked away the most chuffed with these brave. Jacoby interaction we he. The president complimented bowen's flawless fluency in indonesian. Little known fact chris. Bowen speaks indonesian now. A few years ago china's president she addressed indonesia's legislature to great fanfare. So the fees guy. Now what's the nature of the relationship now between jakarta and beijing greg. There's a lot of similarities between indonesia's relations with china and distributors Janis niger economic partner for indonesia. It's also niger investor in the country indonesia's increasing the Pot of china's belt and road initiative. So it's getting a lot of development money. These increasing penetration of lodge chinese corporations building infrastructure for example hospitalized row link between the capital jakarta and the regional capital abandon So there's a. There's a lot of economic activity happening and president. She has very good personal relationship with prisoner jacoby but they're also tensions. One of the tensions is chinese fishing boat incursions into indonesian territorial waters In near the south china sea in the name of the island of tuna and that causes a lot of angst in indonesia sometimes confrontation between Nio vessels of both countries. Another problem is a fairly high level of underwent lying suspicion towards the chinese in indonesia so this often bubbles politically to the surface in indonesia and people say that indonesia is at risk of losing some sovereignty to the chinese and so this is always a break for a leader. Such as jacoby who badly needs chinese investment and the development expertise if he saying as Ext doing that excessively will then he will be attacked for that. Well could chana's rise than i mean. It's obviously threatening. The integrity of sovereign states around the region diamond could could china's roz helped draw camera and jakarta even closer. Yes look there's been a discussion now going back several years in canberra about a closest security relationship within the news yet it seems to be a natural hartman in the region Geography i think determines that to a large extent but our strategic interests similar in relation to china about countries want to have a strong economic relationship with china We want to have china's investments and tried to sell into china but we also want to limit china's expansion in the region strategic rich particularly in the south china sea and In relation to them turner islands which is at the southwest of the south china saying there is neither lapping climbed by china and indonesia. And that's what to the tensions of mid january this year. What we're seeing though is. Indonesia is welcoming china roman hand but in terms of economic growth and development but in terms of china's growing strategic runyon ambition. There's a great deal of skepticism. I think in indonesia as the reason chinandega familiar story. Now let's turn finally gentlemen to indonesia internally. Let's get your reaction to something. The indonesian journalist. Julia sirak osama. This is what she told my. Rn colleague andrew west. This week joey. His record on democracy and human rights has declined and in fact now many activists think that not just activists observers think that democracy indonesia has lowest point in twenty years. It is ironic since when we had the reform era after suharto stepped down. That was supposed to be the beginning of democratization in indonesia but that has opened up a pandora's box and released all the traditional religious conservatives and mainly religious groups has sacrificed human rights. And what he says in a book phobia and intolerance for the sake. Offline call stability. Indonesian journalist julia sura kasama on iran's religion and ethics program. This week diming kingsbury. Look i think that Jacoby has moved in a couple of areas which have raised eyebrows. About his commitment to a plurality and human rights particular around the issues of religion and religious tolerance and so on. But broadly. I think jacoby is an inheritor of the reform tradition particularly that started by cecilia among indiana and that he really is deepening and embedding democratic practice.

Some of the things that jacoby has initiated have really harmed the quality of democracy and there are several things that are being discussed by. he's government wrought now and by the parliament which if implemented could be a considerable reversal. He wouldn't stop indonesia being a democracy. But it would reduce the quality of the democracy greg damian and important discussion. Thanks so much again for being on our end

game I think I'd like to settle a bit earlier as of yet to beat the golden knights it's crazy to think about but that's also is a pretty small sample size has only been two years in the league so it doesn't really feel like you know the whole night the ritual six cold nights but are never read them so all afternoon even a lot of fun because I'm talking about on this program that we were we are working on a new segment that's gonna be a recurring segment called the ultimate Chicago movie cage cage match and successfully taking sixty four teams like March madness but instead of teamster Chicago movies and they're going to pit I got number one seeds to seeds three see all the way down and the idea being that coming up here in December right after thanksgiving we'll have advocates for the movies in here the be arguing and the people who are listening to this program to find people listeners texting call will be the one to choose whether or not these movies move on to we finally crowned the ultimate Chicago movie now what does that mean and that's kind of where we're at as we try to figure out what the rules are and we talked about this before does that mean that it shot in Chicago does that mean it's about Chicago does that mean that it's set in Chicago we kind of danced around those topics and we decided that we would just let let it all in right the idea that perhaps if you had a movie that was shot in Chicago about Chicago going up against a she's a movie that was set in Chicago yeah that could be part of the argument debate on which is the better movie like for instance the reason we should just call this the dark knight exception right Batman the dark knight shot in Chicago iconic Chicago shots lower Wacker drive everywhere around Chicago but it is not set in Chicago that is Gotham City yes sweeping shots of the skyline between in the transition between row and you coming on Jeff curl and dry rose producers in here and he was throwing out his bracket musical man I got dark knight gone a long way like now yeah here is so you're stickler your purest you found yourself because today you were you were looking a production notes you got mad at Christmas vacation a great example he would say that's a Chicago movie the commercial field in that movie that he's always warns bears had them knows that the Grizz walls live in a Chicago suburb yeah that movie is shot on the Warner brothers lot there are maybe a couple exteriors in Colorado or something but that is no where near Chicago and so was that Chicago movie now if you've followed the pizza Herman religion says no but it's on the bracket actually pretty high seed to and I had a couple of people today who gave back the racketeer WGN WGN staff they've had Christmas vacation the final four even getting to the championship as a number I have is a number four seed that's good that's a good seating so there's four divisions there's the Wacker division there's the Wabash division there is the division street division and then there's the Maxwell street division Diller for different divisions for this tournament and what I'm trying to do is use the WGN staff to get through the first couple rounds of the first two rounds so we start with the broadcast with the Sweet Sixteen does that make some because otherwise we would be here every single night going all right everybody what we like to we like high fidelity or do we like night elected Jimmy Reardon and I you know just to go on and on and on because the sixty four different movies and there are plenty there got a minute yeah and John Williams today he said where's windows which just came out last year after great film and Deadshot Chicago and I'm like he did to act I it was sixty five he said he would that would have been against top for sixteen or something yes I mean there's a lot like that a good example as well would be the movie Glengarry Glen Ross did not make the tournament why because the movie shot in New York the script and the book that it's based on by David Mamet all about Chicago so not sure that that'll Alec Baldwin scene put the coffee down coffee for closers that's not in Chicago it's not a Chicago movie and what about love movies where there's just a scene another one that we all made it that they came in at like number sixty seven it was tough and I made the call because it alright planes trains and automobiles not a Chicago movie it has a scene in which Chicago is in it but we determine that is not a Chicago movie another one that would that got a lot of people angry and text of a a bunch of regulars here was the movie midnight run great with Charles Grodin Robert deniro put a great movie that it's right shot partially in Chicago I think it starts or ends that movie in Chicago or maybe the pastor at one point not eligible didn't make the cut so there you go someone wrote in the Senate you better have road to perdition sun list a list of some saying I think we did a really good job you could try to stop us in different different ways but I feel like I've done a good job of getting sixty four Chicago movies of all sorts of genres and all sorts of back also generations on this list I think I would have put planes trains and automobiles in there before when Harry met Sally see that's the one that I feel like I wish I didn't put it in a couple of people have that going couple of rounds and that's that's still and I mean that's the contradiction I'm just I'm just like the NC double a I'm just like the selection committee how could you say that all that stuff you just several planes trains and automobiles and then turn around put when Harry met Sally when everyone knows that's a New York movie and the reason it's a Chicago movies because there's a scene in it or they they meet in Chicago versus Chicago mmhm and it's gonna be said about that right I I'm I'm already tripping I'm contradicting tripping over my own rule except movie couldn't have taken place he would not have met Sally so wasn't for Chicago so maybe it's about the plot point in Chicago so it's not a good example transformers we all transformers a shot here but it never mentions Chicago now transformers dark of the moon which I think is a third a fourth one that one mention Chicago that's the one where which is essentially Avengers before the Avengers for the aliens are coming down and they're gonna destroy Chicago and I think it's on top of the Tribune tower where they open a portal being I think in that movie they travel to Chicago for the battle of Chicago that makes sense in the transformers movie where it's all on Michigan Avenue a like a stuff I think it's a nondescript city if that makes sense so transformers dark of the moon is in the tournament transformers the original one is not all right we good yeah no my favorite because again the WGN staff is just picking the first couple rounds in a and I'm doing it I'm probably gonna at this time about fifty brackets that are out and people are doing them and then we'll decide if there's upsets it'll all be a composite the my favorite one so far as Bob calling who's in sales great guy he actually had a role he was in the movie ordinary people yeah everything the movie ordinary people with Donald Sutherland company so she has ordinary people going away personal for one's personal it is the and it's also interesting to see some of the younger staffers who maybe don't have an affinity for the movie the untouchables right I think that's that a movie that's that's the number one seed he'd think about the untouchables at such a huge movie Kevin Costner the whole bit maybe not to Ellis they'll now like shooting a delay the last dance better right right right so the so and I think that there's some some truth to that so I got a lot of text coming in about movies will get to him right after this break three one two ninety one seventy two hundred if you want to weigh in I'll go over so we're at a give you little for

I'm getting my second TV set up. And then all of a sudden, I hear my phone going off like crazy. I'm like what the hell is going on here. And it's multiple texts from a variety of different people talking about Chris Mullin, and Kris Bolin who couple of days earlier, you heard from Saint John's basically saying he's our coach these reports that are out there hogwash, she's going to be coaching the team to the nineteen twenty twenty but Jon Rothstein all over it. That Chris Molin is now planning to step down at Saint John's said coach two days after the school said the same and it's supported him. And it was a looking for another head coach. So what do I make this whole situation? I think it's very simple. And Chris won't wanna contract extension. I Chris Bowen wanted to rip up the deal have no one and go from there. Based upon his work the last four years. And considering that Chris Molin has two more years remaining on his contract. And he's four million dollars on that contract. Say John would be insane to extend insane. My question anybody out there who would say well, you got to extend him. He's alleging he's not you have to separate Chris Mullin the player and what he meant to university at Chris Molin the basketball coach. We all know. He's the school's greatest player.

"You up until five forty obey the warm up show with Al and Jerry. Live from Atlanta. It'll be a boomer and geo at six where else the fan right here in New York City, and we're going to start the show. With through through twofold. I with the lead up in the buildup to Super Bowl fifty three down in Atlanta. And we will get to Chris Mullin in the Saint John's third store men. I gotta admit. I was just nauseated by the site of hearing Tom Brady and seeing all those patriot fans as they are having their pep rally before they deport for Atlanta. Brady and his suit all dolled up Gillette rock and shake in starting the channel of where still here, we're still here. We're still here. If that is not something you don't want to gag listening to or watching or hearing. I mean, I don't know what. Well, because eight speaks to the dominance in which we've seen annoying the patriots dominates sport for the last seventeen years, and he was a more troubling and to me disturbing count from Tom Brady. And of course, this is coming from an anti patriots way of looking at things Brady speaking to believe it was Jeff Darlington over ESPN when he was asked. Okay, Tom, this is Super Bowl number nine for you. If you now win your six Super Bowl as quarterback is there. Anyway, you could walk in ride off into the sunset and Brady made it as clear as day. No matter what happens next Sunday for you jet fans few dolphin fan. You bills fans that will may be fantasizing. About the idea of Tom Brady. Sayonara. Think again. And I know it's going to be sickening storyline for many of you. I know I'm right there. Raising my hand acknowledging I'm sick and tired of hearing about these two gentlemen. Ballot. Check in Brady but aides greatness. You can't deny that what the patriots have been able to do for the better part of seventeen eighteen years in the NFL in a sport in which this is not supposed to happen. That's by any means. You will look back at this run a greatness and rest assured you will never in your lifetime. Sports fan. See this in the NFL ever again. I don't care how many great players coaches. You may see down the road. Find me the team that's going to go to nine Super Bowls. Go to eight straight AFC title games have a chance to dare. I say win six Super Bowls. Never going to happen again. So I'm sure that's the storyline. That will get a lot of attention. The pats ran subplot to the first Super Bowl these two teams played kind of kicking off. This patriot dynasty is going to get a lot of play. And of course, it's going to be the wizard of Bill Belichick and his greatness going up against the hotshot, and Sean McVeigh, and whether or not it will be changing a guard. I know that's what you think. And if you Iran's fan. But if you're a patriots fan, it's the idea of relishing the fact that yeah, you're having another send-off in front of thirty five thousand fans in to quote Tom Brady, and I believe them they're not done yet. So that's your story is far as the buildup in the lead up to Super Bowl fifty three. Now I woke up today. In a little bit of a depressed state, not gonna lie. The first Sunday since what Labor Day weekend that I've not had NFL football my life and DVR beauty. I was able to roll out of bed around twelve thirty twelve forty and boom I was able to catch up with these to Saint John's and Georgetown and Madison Square Garden and think about the sad state of affairs in New York sports. The Knicks who will get to later on shell enough said dumpster fire epic proportions the nets playing well. But again, the nets they're not going to move the needle same way. The hockey does not have the Rangers plan at a high level islanders playing well. But again now move the needle you don't have the true fixtures that you used to seeing that really you're not used to seeing. But the Knicks are used to seeing what the Rangers. But those teams right now couldn't be more relevant. There was a real opportunity for Chris Ballin at Saint John's to stay in the top twenty five to be atop the big east to be a program that had serious serious. Sizzle and momentum dare I say heading into the monta March. Well, the more more you look at Saint John's, let's be fair the more and more. You continue to be underwhelmed as Saint John's is a seven or eight point favorite at home against a mediocre. Georgetown team loses the game. They can execute down the stretch. And there are a lot of warning signs with this basketball team. For those who want to argue while they're fifteen and five you could take that record and stick with sunshine Saint John's play cupcakes city through non conference they played nobody before the start of the big east play. And by the way, the big he's not that good this year. This is not your old school big east with Connecticut and vintage Georgetown, Syracuse and uconn whoville. No this big east right now. It's two teams. It's Villanova Marquette. Saint John's is supposed to be a top that big east. Eight days to prepare for this game came out as flat as can be you have the head coach who has been outcoached in so many games. I've lost cow the optic dove ham on the sideline. Tying his shoe as one of his assistant coaches is drawn up a plan huddle, you're gonna tell me that's a good luck for Chris Bowen, it is not. Then you have the fact that Chris Bolin does not have a time out over the final eight minutes of the game. How is that possible? Chris. Thank you first year coach in the big east. Four. You can't go the final eight minutes to this game. Without having a timeout. That's unacceptable. You can't sit here and tell me as a Saint John's fan that your confidence is at a sky high level decrease ball is going to be a big time head coach here, and I all time great all Famer great story coming back. Brooklyn guys have very high school. I love at all except you have to wonder can Chris Bala coach. And right now, I would say the answer that question is, no. And we gotta stretch games. Coming up at Creighton Wednesday. At duke. Good luck Saturday at Marquette who I think is going to be in the top candidate. How fifteen Saint John's doesn't find a way to get one of those games. This season is going to be. Pretty much left for dead. Because they play nobody at the start of the year. This was their chance to really move the needle in a big way have Madison Square Garden had buzzed. When Villanova comes to town at the end of February. Once we're turning our attention in college basketball. To beat three and five initiators big east. No, no, don't tell me. It's the old big east where he get to five hundred and conference. You're okay, come tournament time. Not in this league. No way. No how and it's not the Saint John's does have talent. They have a ton of talent on this team. They should not be this back. And I think a lot of people make the argument. That if this season goes down the tubes in Saint John's is not back in the NCWA tournament because malls coach and his team now four years. That if they're not the NC double A tournament, some more get any to make change. Now. It's going to be very tricky though. Because anytime you're dealing with the iconic figure, and that's why I cautioned the Rangers not to hire more Bessie. It'd be the head coach I cautioned the New York Yankees when I was doing radio in Syracuse New York that they should hire. Don Mattingly the next manager because when you bring that iconic figure of your team your program and put him in charge. If things don't go the way, you want them to go. And the results are not what you expect them to be trying to say goodbye in China, Paul ways can lead to a sticky sticky situation. Saint John's still has Tanisha to turn their season around. But I thought we have a full month February with that. I was planning on going out to Villanova game. Still am I wanna see villanovan person? But I was thinking we have some fun at the end of the year big east tournament and instead death home losses to the Paul and Georgetown, the three and five in the league right now to me they're on the wrong Saudi NCWA tournament bubble. I did not think we'd be putting bubble Saint John's in the same sentence, but we Super Bowl. That's where we are not go for Chris Mullin to sixteen here on this early Monday stage chassis Stransky guide you to the overnight right here on the fan. We got a lot to do. We'll get to the Knicks any triumphant homecoming in the stands for one cardinal. Anthony. We got a lot more on Super Bowl. Fifty three between the Rams and the New England Patriots. And yeah, I'm kind of sick and tired of hearing Tom Brady and the New England Patriots tell us. They're not done yet. Again, it wrong with your calls right here on the fan. Hockey fans joined greater Fort Lauderdale for the ultimate pre-game party with cakes and one oh six seven the fan at clydes of gallery place at.
