Michael Knowles: It's Disgusting to See Republicans Against Each Other

"In the opening hour of the show Michael I address this strange phenomenon happening even with people on the right way right now where understandably there are varying degrees of opinion about what we should do regarding this ongoing tragedy in Ukraine It's just bizarre to see some people on the right I'm not going to name names but they're turning on each other here and trying to use the same tactics as lefties accusing anyone who has an alternate opinion about the matter of being Putin Stooges I mean Mitt Romney accusing Tulsi Gabbard who is a Democrat nonetheless of treason for merely stating a fact about biological research facilities I mean this is a very very dangerous thing to become a useful idiot for that kind of stuff It is amazing that at a time when we are saying that we in the west have an open tolerant liberal society and that's what separates us from that madman authoritarian Putin And that's why we need to send Tulsi Gabbard and Tucker Carlson to go to The Hague and then to hang for having a different opinion than Mitt Romney does It doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to me And it's really really disgusting I think about just my friends here at the daily wire We've got what half a dozen podcast hosts and personalities here We all have different opinions on Ukraine Some people are much more pro intervention Some people are much more reticent for intervention None of us here are calling each other traders And it's also really astounding that we've got a situation now where half of the country is effectively disrespecting the American flag they applaud for BLM they applaud for Colin Kaepernick They kneel they sit down for the American flag and yet they tell you that if you do not want to go send F-16s into Ukraine that you're a trader I think they need to look up the definition of patriotism and treason

Enes Kanter Freedom Blacklisted for Stance on China

"Now, we heard a lot about when Colin Kaepernick was allegedly blacklisted by the NFL and couldn't get a tryout. And a lot of people said, well, it kills it just gone. I don't know NFL quarterbacks to the browns didn't need one. So I didn't care. I am, however, I'm not persuaded eNOS Cantor freedom has no skill set. I mean, he got 12 boards and 7 points in his last game as a Celtic. I've watched the Cavaliers forever. There's a lot of bad talent putting around at the end of the bench and he's not a bad talent. Does he think he's been blacklisted? I did not ask him that specifically and I wouldn't speak for him that will tell you what if you can get him on your show. He is, he's so eloquently about freedom and the importance of freedom. And also about what is family and turkey has been subjected to because he chose to speak out and descend the Uyghur Muslims.

Brian Flores says his Giants interview was for show to satisfy 'Rooney Rule'

"Bill Belichick, the coach of the New England Patriots, mistakenly text this guy, Brian Flores, congratulating him on getting the hit coach job for the New York Giants. The problem is, he didn't get the head coach job for the New York giant. There's another guy named Brian. So he takes the wrong guy, and by the way, it was three days before this Brian interviewed for position with the New York Giants. Apparently, complying with the Rooney rule, meaning they'd already decided who they wanted to hire. They already were going to hire another guy named Brian. Brian Belichick didn't Bill Belichick didn't know that. Congratulated this guy for getting the job. Three days before he applied for the job, interviewed for the job, which apparently had already been given to somebody else. Now, in the lawsuit, he says, I'm standing up against systemic racism in the NFL. Says this, the league is rife with systemic racism and it is akin to being run, he says, like a plantation.

The Most Insane Leftist Responses to the Rittenhouse Verdict

"Excuse me, the daily wire. Collected, they listed. We're going to post this, Mike online dot com. The most insane leftist responses. To the rittenhouse verdict. President Biden, while the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge the jury has spoken. What do you mean you're angry and concert? What are you angry about? What you wanted this kid's head on a platter? Is that what it is? Self defense isn't supposed to be self defense? How about Gavin newsham? This nutcase, governor, America today, he said, you can break the law, carry around weapons built for a military. Shoot and kill people and get away with it. That's the message. We've just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation. You see, newsham, these kooks never condemn the rioters or the looters. No, no, no, no. The guy that had a gun in defect was trying to protect a business and was defending himself. He's the bad guy. Not the pedophile trying to kill him. No, no. He's the good guy. How about governor J B pritzker, of Illinois? This classic. He heard about Newsom evidently instead hold my beer. Pritzker said, carrying a loaded gun into a community 20 miles from your home and shooting unarmed citizens is fundamentally wrong. How about the congressional black caucus? Here was their statement. It is unconscionable our justice system would allow an armed vigilante who traveled to Kenosha Wisconsin and killed Joseph rosenbaum Anthony huber and the wounded gauge grows gross Croix to go free. Colin Kaepernick. He said, well, but I can do you better. We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, ha, let the boy be black, he said, and it would have been life. Hell he would have had his life taken before this BS trial. Sad. House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler. These are not insignificant people. This is a very prominent Democrat. He said, quote, this heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by the Department of Justice.

The message was, it's disrespectful. It's pretty shameful and you got appreciate the country you're in. And you're not showing a level of appreciation when you disrespect the national anthem by getting on a knee. Hey lefties. That was RBG. However, Katie Couric edited that out of the interview. Because well, she's elderly, she maybe didn't understand the question no. It didn't fit the narrative. So show Katie Couric journalist decided to edit it out. In her memoir, going their couric rights, how she edited out the part where Ginsburg said that those who kneel during The Star-Spangled Banner are showing contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.

She has publicly advocated for support of this position By supporting the originator of it from five years ago quarterback colin kaepernick an avowed communist supporter.

I cheered for them because they were beating up on people who hate my country even though they were wearing the colors that represent my country. You see. I believe in the mathematical equation of a negative. Negative is a positive if a negative anti-american Like meghan were. Pinot is speaking ill of my country.

San Francisco 49ers trade up for the No. 3 pick

"The forty niners trade up to number three overall in the twenty twenty one draft. This was shocking. News to me. Came out right after my episode released on saturday or on friday after i sent over my episode but i normally just was not expecting Draft news to come this early. I feel like most years. The draft news comes a lot closer to the draft is still three or four weeks away but the forty niners did in their aggressive so they traded the twelfth overall. Pick a twenty twenty two third round compensatory pick and first round picks in twenty twenty two and twenty two thousand three for the miami dolphins number three overall selection so the dolphins moved to twelve where the four nine were previously listed. And now the forty niners move up to three. So what does this mean. First of all they swap a total of three first round picks. Is that smart to do. I think it is if they liked the guy. If they're convinced on one of these quarterbacks enough and they're confident that they can get them at number three. I think it's a great move because at this point the forty niners roster is loaded. They're trying to win now. And all they need is that future franchise cornerstone to kind of move that what roster forward and push them over the hump so they need to get the future of the franchise right while the roster and core are relatively young and talented like they are but overall. I think this is a great move by four hundred. Gm john lynch because he's been aggressive. He really inherited a mess in two thousand seventeen. They were coming off all the colin kaepernick drama Jim thome soula era. Which was a fun was which was really fun while it lasted Brian hoyer was his first quarterback when he got there he's made aggressive moves since he treated for jimmy garoppolo drafted. George kittle has fifth round. Pick one of the better draft picks in the past three four years. That's happened for five years. That's happened in the nfl. Just in terms of the value that he got that late in the draft

"So the game is going to be on CBS and, of course, will be the coverage of the game. They'll be all the pre games, etcetera, right? There's a piece in an opinion piece in USA Today that caught my attention. It's by Jared Bell is one of the columnist headline says CBS has a responsibility. Who set a progressive tone with its Super Bowl 55 coverage, and it goes on to first of all Rip Fox last year for They're Super Bowl coverage. Where apparently they Colin capper, he says, Well, Colin Kaepernick's name was never even mentioned. You know, even though it was his former team that played so the columnist is saying it was just terrible. They didn't even mention Colin Kaepernick, and they didn't talk about the various social justice movements that had had Royal The NFL last year. And so the columnist goes on to say, Look, this is this year, you need to have a more progressive tone. Um, the game's context includes the presence of four black coordinators. That would be offensive or defensive more than ever in a Super Bowl against the backdrop of the NFL, Sorry track record for heart hiring minorities, his head coaches and it says, Okay, what we should do is we should emphasize this. You know what we should be doing is we should be talking about again. The Colin Kaepernick issue we should be talking about how this Super Bowl is being conducted. Against the backdrop of the pandemic. And of course, she had all the social justice issues and things like this. This is CBS his opportunity to strike a progressive Tone and to use the Super Bowl and all the people that are going to be watching this, maybe people that otherwise wouldn't watch a football game. This is our chance for CBS is chance to again use this progressive tone to talk about it, perhaps influence issues of the day.

Companies Get Political

Companies Get Political

"Lee newman ceo of advertising agency. Mullen low you ask. Thank you for joining us So the first thing. I wanted to ask you. Was this change that we've been seeing in. How companies are handling kind of the political events. That are happening right now. I mean in the past. I guess in the before time. Say a couple years ago from what i understood. It was always sort of conventional wisdom for companies to kind of stay out of politics. I think that's exactly right while they're there may have been things happening behind the scenes and certainly political donations and watkiss to the public facing. I generally speaking brands were. Were trying to remain neutral and stay out of politics. I'm wondering if there was like a point this year when you started seeing a lot of companies coming to you about how to approach politics I'm wondering was it around the the murder of george floyd yet that was a watershed moment. Because i think that there was a growing realization corporate america that you couldn't simply opt out of the conversation that silence was Complicity and you had to say something. And i had vice that we were giving over and over again as whatever you say should be backed up by actions in terms of what you're doing within the walls of your company but also How you're given. And i think that that's carrying over to this past week across a broad spectrum of companies. What was it about that moment. I guess that caused this shift because all these companies i mean there were the ones like nike which you know made a lot of sense given colin kaepernick and things like that but also there were brands like i remember gushers fruit snacks. You know they came out with the statement and everybody kind of chuckled about it but you know they came out saying like we support black lives matter like this company wouldn't be what it is without black consumers and workers I mean it seemed like all these companies were all kind of stepping out in a way that at least to me it seemed like a new like a new thing absolutely and i'd like to start with a positive and believe that there was a genuine desire to create change and so i still all these years in the business world than i still start with optimism there but it's not. It's a good thing. I feel like you know that's it. I'm glad to hear that. Visit the world of businesses not always compete a little cynical. Yes please. yeah. And i don't think that's the only reason i mean i think it's also a direct reflection of the political views of of the leadership and then the third thing which is really important and should not be underestimated is the power of employees to put pressure on a company to use their influence. And there's a talent war going on and when the real heart of a company a talent of a company raises. Its voice in unison management. Oftentimes reacts to that and then the last reason talk about is people's ability really search and know how companies are behaving how they're donated and businesses are aware of that. I think that the last point businesses knowing that that people are paying attention Is driving a lot of the behavior. We've seen most recently in the past week. Were you surprised to see so many companies kind of speaking up in the last. I guess week or so. Did it surprise you to see so many companies kind of coming out with statements. It did surprise me and surprise me to see a lot of companies that I would view as as as more conservative actually using their influence to to make a stand. Why do you think those companies did that will. In a lot of cases. I feel like Companies were doing it out of a business. Need you know on wall. Street loves stability and what we saw. This past week was the opposite of stability. And and so i think that a lot of ways these companies felt like they were protecting our democracy

WNBA players celebrate Warnock's projected win over Loeffler

"Right. Before the insurrection at the capital there was two senate runoff elections that the country had their is on in one of them. The reverend raphael warnock defeated the incumbent. Appointed senator kelly leffler in georgia. Kelly leffler for about ten years has been a partial owner of the atlanta dream of the wnba. She's now the majority owner but she's been around the team for now ten or eleven years and you may have heard her own players and much of the wnba is diametrically opposed to everything that leffler stands force. It was a very interesting situation to see everything develop earlier this week. And then how it works in the team dynamic for more on that. Let's welcome and renee. Montgomery actually a guard for the atlanta dream. She joins us this morning. She's actually rejoining us this morning a second time. She's been on with this. Good morning to you so i guess the first thing i gotta ask you is being a member of the team and understanding everything. That's going on on the floor in off the floor. What's the reaction of you and your teammates to misled losing this election. So i'm just gonna speak for myself and the reaction is. It's not even just her losing. Its rafael worn off. One and i wanna make sure that the messaging stays clear because there's some things that happened on january six is trying to take away from the fact that a black man is going to send it a jewish man from georgia's going to send it and we won the presidential race so i would say for me. It's a sweep. it's a three no sleep. So the the the feeling is happy. Rene speaking of january six. What are your thoughts on everything that occurred that day. Yeah you know. It's kinda like we all felt something was gonna happen. I was worried after november. Third ominously like when when the number started tied and we could see that joe biden. Really my win this thing you know. We all started to get a little nervous even here in georgia the aquarium shutdown coach color. They all boarded up their their buildings because we were all expecting some type of reaction and not a good one so then to see what happened on january six and see the lack of policing that was there it was it was disappointing and most call a spade a spade. It was terrorism. Domestic terrorism is the term that we should use for that renee montgomery innately. Sorry thanksgiving i was going to say what is say about the platform that the wnba has like you guys like even a month before. Colin kaepernick took a knee in two thousand sixteen. The wnba pre-game conference about police brutality. You guys were black. Lives matters t shirts before it was even a thing. Guys always been the leader at the forefront say about the platform that you guys have in the work that you guys have been doing you know. I hope people start to licking because a lot of brands. A lot of sponsors. They don't see the value in in women would say 'cause you know. I think i saw a tweet. From china robinson that said of sponsorship for women athletics how chow especially now knowing the impact that a women's league not just so a player but a whole week and have i don't understand why there's no interest but i do hope that just seeing how things transpired and how everyone to see what's going on. I hope that there is some value added to women now. Renee montgomery of the atlanta dream is joining us. This morning on keyshawn jay williams zubin were presented by progressive. Insurance and rene is with us on the goodyear hotline to robinson by the way. Espn women's college basketball analyst shaina. Yes shoutout. I want to ask you this because people may not want to go back to leffler because i think this is just so fascinating with how clear she's been in how clear you guys have been She used to be for people. That aren't aware that maybe don't follow the dream on everyday basis. She used to be a constant present. at games. a practice you'd be a team functions. He was always be sitting in the front row. She was very active owner. Obviously things have changed when she went to the senate got other responsibilities. I just wonder what your relationship is with her. The team's relationship with her you know even before the senator race i would just fear before the games. We've been to her house. Where team function. But i mean any of the players know you're not usually best friends with owner in general you know you typically would talk more to your g Even when it comes to contracts and stuff so we did see her there and we would wait and she was you know. I know that she released herself. From you. know day to day duties as she became a senator but she was president and the wnba. I know probably the letter was her trying to distance herself. Thing is how she's republican and the wnba. Is you know highly majority. Lgbt in black and brown community. So i can understand why she's trying to distance ourselves but it wasn't the case beforehand. Rene we're kind of personal discussions if any at all have you had. We'll often about social justice nine. I'm you know this was a typical owner-player relationship. So you know. I never talked to my minnesota on her about social justice. And i know that this time is is different but by the time that all of these things try Started to unfold. You know it was already. She was already too far. gone by. then how do you feel now that everything is transpired and she still co owner of the team for me and this is gonna be unpopular to say but for me. I'm sure she's not the only owner. That probably feels the way she feels. And so i hope that the wnba and hope that you know even her you know i. I've already posed the question. I don't know why he would want to own a wnba team. If you have to write a letter to the commissioner opposing. Everything that that team is standing for you know. Our team is the atlanta dream. And i don't know if people know that's from martin. Luther king's dream speech. That's how we got our name so if you oppose everything that we fundamentally stand for. I don't see how you can build a relationship there. I don't know why you'd want to be there

After A manhood battle with art modell whose the owner Cleveland browns and direct line and one of the things on everything. We think we're saying there's historical precedent for it and the function and the horses ourselves. Insane. And so right. You look at that the and you look at what's happening feeling I'm not the first person. Say This I long chop wanted to contextualized story. And also like yeah. Camp is doing civil rights work. In the resistance that he faces shows you how much of this country is still against the most basic expression of civil rights what do you? What do you make of? The NFL along with the NBA? WNBA. Others. The institutions of sport have seemed to have come around to say you know we're going to embrace black lives matter. We're going to plastered all over the field or the court wear whatever you want. Neil. However, you want like you know we're fully supportive of the movement and yet gaps still doesn't have a job. So he still sacrificed his dream. Surely, it was his childhood dream that he achieved And then had that taken away chose to go after something bigger, and now that the the sports world, the NFL in particular has come around to his side of things. He is still left out which for so many of us for you to. ADDS a hypocritical sheen to all of it. I mean, I don't know I can't fully embrace what the NFL is doing until he is welcome back into the fold in a serious way. I mean, one of the. made the final cut I. Don't remember off the top of my head but wasn't Michael Vick can chilidog and still have A. Job in Colin Kaepernick, can't say. Shoot people. And not have a job. That's what I think. First of all the NFL. Lost me just I mean. There are a lot like their lot of sports. I. Love. I. Love Sports is you know and but there's always another sport and league baseball loss during steroids. Haven't been back. Haven't really looked back. I might watch catch on the corner of my eye, the barbershop every once in a while. The NFL. Because they are so far on what you say what you think the man like Avenue you know Muhammad, Ali's spent. Eighteen months in jail for Kosovo Vietnam War. I don't remember how much. Much of the baby actually did. Athletic careers. sports and they end when you're still a young individual with a lot of life ahead and as you read it as Jim Brown realize can't stop. By many miles at. And right the dream of NFL would it looks like it might be over I hope that it's eventually someone will give him a shot maybe but. And will air. We'll find the next stream. Nets like life purpose. That's always the challenge of being an athlete. It happened to him in a prematurely it's not fair but he's shown himself to be larger than that lead

Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

The National Anthem in Sports: What's Next?

"If you got an a time machine four years ago and set it for twenty twenty, your eyes would get wide for all kinds of reasons and the site of full teams superstars kneeling during the anthem with support from their coaches and owners and leaks. That would be one of the most startling. Players coaches. Game officials alike, all taking me in Orlando, our full moment before the game during the national anthem all of the players wearing black lives matter shirts most of them taking a knee including Naperville Central Alum Casey short and team made Julia. Earth's clearly emotions running high for both of them in that moment with a moment of silence here and respect pre-game in support of social justice seventeen different Texas rangers players took a knee during that moment including meadow door Robinson. Torino's NFL is kicking off tonight and whether you cosigned the venue of his protest or not Colin Kaepernick did prove something that both sides of the aisle can agree up. There is no ritual more sacred in American sports than the. Star spangled banner. It would be crazy to underestimate how it makes us feel. Fans as citizens on all kinds of levels, and if you're a musician performing the anthem, I'm testing the microphone check one, two, your the one who channels almost emotions and identities in that pregnant moment. Can you hear that John Batiste is from New Orleans. Say Julia. Grad. Who among many hats leads the band for the late show with Stephen Colbert. His latest take on the national anthem played before the first game of the NBA Restart in Orlando back in July. When players took the court amid questions of how they keep the focus on social justice from inside the bubble. Tonight's presentation of the national anthem has been recorded by musician producer activist and Louisiana Native John Booties. This great to be here. Thank you for having me. So I wanna know what went through your mind when you're contemplating how to perform this particular song at this particular moment. What did it mean to have this opportunity to remotely address this community amid a broader social movement in our country? Asking these questions of how we fit into society and what? Society owes us in what society continues to maintain the status quo have been questions that I've been wrestling with prior to. All of the social unrest that we're seeing. Wrestling with these questions in dealing with the dice, sport influences of black music and really chronicling my own personal experiences, a black man in America and as a musician from the south, and you know this this moment presented itself. And it really felt organic to step into it. The anthem really being this combination, this historical document if you will in our country. There's also there seems to be a flavor of like to my on educated yearly southern rap kind of feeling the beats that you put in there. There's the orchestra sound of drums. There's maybe some Hendrix. So I just want you to clarify what went into your arrangement. Era Pablo you heard a lot. So many strains of the black American experience. Me Bay from the south ahead of bounce being. That is something that I grew up here in all over the streets in New Orleans. I. Picked up the Guitar Midway through with this kind of nod to Jimi. Jimi Hendrix version from. Woodstock The Blues Music which came from sharecroppers and slaves that then evolved into rock and roll and RB. Adding that to the anthem with the classical timpanist and the cello being the counter line to what I was playing on the piano. Gives it this epic quality that I feel? I ask for a deserves. If. They were musicians. What kind of activism would my heroes portray in a moment like this o'hare? And Counter John Lewis. Out Gradually, but we wanted to be free now. mlk My poor little children. Will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of skin but by the content of character, I have a dream. Now, John Is there a particular rendition of the song throughout history that resonates with you. is so many but you have to pick Whitney. You know come on man. Yes. This was at ninety one super bowl at the beginning of the first. Gulf War. In ESPN history of that performance says the NFL wanted Whitney's version sped up and re recorded but. Whitney said No. WIT WITH KNEE HOUSTON. Sings the anthem the way that it should be saw. Law. John I gotta say the Marvin Gaye Nineteen Eighty three NBA all star game anthem that is the one song I have played at a party and people weren't immediately sure what it was, but they were down man it took like maybe ten seconds you realize wait a minute this is the star spangled better I-. Marvins version of the anthem shows you. that. You know. I will culture and tradition to make lemonade. You. Could take something and you could filter it through the black. Experience. And what comes out on other side is just as soulful and is refreshing and as completely dope as anything.

"Victoria with my school stories, school the school days Good old rotten school days yesterday. Posted. When I have my Facebook account, there was a story of a woman who lives in a community north of Boston. And she said her Children off to school and sending him off to school meant sending them into their bedroom where they all had desks and they had laptops. So that they could participate in the first day of school. So the teacher instructed the mother to not necessarily hang around because the Children had to learn on their own. So the mother went away. And then, after the lesson was over later in the day, the Children came to tell the mother what the first thing was that they saw after school that started Apparently, this teacher played a video of Colin Kaepernick taking a knee. And a video of black lives matter material before there was any English before there was any math before there was any science. Before there was any anything taught. The Children were shown these videos, and this is what I've been talking about. The advocacy stuff from teachers these days is obscene, This kind of stuff, whether it's gonna Maybe some of you know of this same sort of thing happening in your system. Is no place for it, no matter whether it's the first day of school or the last day of school that is advocacy crap that doesn't belong in any educated public educational institutions. Whether you agree, or you don't agree. That is not an educational experience that needs this is an era when kids don't know howto Balance checking account. They don't know how to communicate their how to write a sentence..

"Player now. He's productive for both teams, but he is a productive professional athletes. I I did not like James or Mariota. Coming into the draft I I. Didn't think I didn't see what everyone else felt like. They saw I just felt like Mariota didn't have that it. Factor and I felt like James was inconsistent, which pretty much matched how he was in college. So to me. This is not a surprise that he is now in the situation that he's in now. Maybe he's, he's learned from all that inconsistency and obviously he's taken major steps to extend his career going again. Look like everyone gets really like everyone freaked out about cabinet going Vegan and people always freak out when you hear vegan listen. I'm not going Vegan unless a doctor tells me that life depends on. On it, no intention ongoing begin fame here unless that is the option, but everyone is different, and everyone's body is different. What works for you doesn't necessarily work for me? So if he needed to lose seventeen pounds, Vegan was gonNA help him do that great. The laser surgery seemed like not going to happen done that before. Yeah, but take the actions in the steps that you need to to make the. Call and we'll never allow a raise. A laser in two places is you can figure out the other one, so the NBA has figured out how to finish the season, but what about starting the next one hawks GM? Travis Link said that the League is eager to stay as close to its original schedule as possible and to do this. They're considering condense scheduled for the twenty, twenty, one, twenty, twenty, eight, twenty, twenty one season to fit all eighty two regular season games in. So they're eyeing December first. Start the next season Christmas. That's what the report is now now that's not a whole lot of time off, or whatever team goes to the finals, which would end on October twelfth right so essentially a little less than two months. The that's fine. To team. Yeah, yeah, so it would be a full two months off. That got knocked out without any I. don't mind them starting December I. Like December first or Christmas doesn't really matter to me, but that's going to be an intense season I'll tell you try and get all eighty two games in there I'll tell you though. It's strange. This virus this pandemic. His been mostly bad. We would both agree on that. But we've said this whenever a country goes through a crisis. There is. Something that. You know, air safety today is better than it was pre nine eleven like the the quality of the. Security after you have to make major adjustments and sometimes you wouldn't have those opportunities. That border crisis unless forced to make those those changes I think the NBA is much better served to be a late December to August I league. Get Out of this once. Betting got legalized the NBA NFL. You don't want to go up against him. It's just not even college football to Saturday's like. The NBA She. Just go. You know what start a month later start to six months weeks later and six weeks later. Are you going to tell me I'm not because it's July I'm not gonNa Watch the in the finals. Of course, it's too hot to go outside and most of the country hotter. You're on vacation like just because you're on. WHAT DO PEOPLE DO VACATION? They relax at night. Right so this idea that you're on vacation. You're not going to watch television. It's like what are what are you doing? I watch more I think I watch a ton of TV in the summer. Often I'm in California right? You're in the south of the Midwest or the northeast, very hot outside, and you're just. You're going to do stuff all day like you. People are People Still Watch TV I. Agree With You I. Think this is an opportunity for them to justice season. They would really benefit them. Good stuff joy with the news. Well, that's the news and thanks for stopping by. Heard Lie Darryl says the media doesn't like James. Harden I say he's just let us down too often in the playoffs and we don't consider him next level. If you don't want in the playoffs were not interested in the rest of your career Colin Kaepernick I think it's interesting again, but four years off is the NFL quarterback even a backup now, nick right next good thoughts. It's the hurt. Be Short. Catch live editions of the heard Weekdays at noon Eastern. Not Am Pacific so Malcolm Jenkins said, listen Yo capture. Nick and apology or you assign him to a football. Football team. Well, we don't. There isn't really work that way in the NFL signing. Guys to a team, but it is interesting. Let's bring in. Nick brought to you by Mercedes Benz, the best or nothing, the host of the first things first. Let's bring on Nick Right, so it's interesting I. I was saying this in my life. Nick and I I am football guy more than a basketball guy. There are a basketball I've never seen this much talent quarterback I've never seen this much young town at quarterback. Virtually everybody drafted in the first round, not named Paxton Lynch works. Next year two more superstar quarterbacks I don't think Cabernet is starting quarterback anymore with three and a half years of inactivity. Is He a backup I'm here I'm here for it. I think it's GonNa. Be Fascinating. I. Don't think we should walk on eggshells either apologize tryouts. Let me just ask you. Is he good enough to be a quarterback in the NFL after three and a half years off in your opinion? Won't listen I think he's good enough to be one of the seventy five guys. That's on a roster. I mean week I agree. We're in the golden age of quarterbacking, but the backup quarterback for this upcoming season for the defending Super Bowl. Champion Kansas City chiefs is Chad Haney who has thrown five passes since cap was a starter in the last in the last four years. Cat might of missed three of them. He's still made it through three hundred and thirty passes those four years. Heaney's thrown five, and we are also seeing shifts stylistically to where more and more quarterbacks play cap style, and early on in his blackballing we were. Well? He can't back up this type of quarterback because you want your backup to be rg three to Lamar will there's a hell of a lot more of mobile quarterback, so you would think that would open things up for him, but I'll tell you what I told cap when I sat with him two years ago. He's never. GonNa play in the NFL again. It's unfair. It's not right, but the the. The NFL did I believe blackball them, and now it has been too long now. Would I be happy if my chief signed him, might chiefs who have made it very clear. We don't actually care about anything off the field. As help us win shore I would, but this is a sacrifice. He shouldn't have had make, but at the sacrifice he didn't make and I want to defend the NFL in. In this regard because I had someone asked me yesterday. Can you take the NFL's and Roger Goodell's apology seriously? If cap doesn't get a job, I, I think we will see by the NFL, and by the owner's actions, contributions tangible acts how serious they are about this issue. We're dealing with I think we can give them credit if they do those things right while also acknowledging that listen cap got. Got Run out of the League for something he was right about and shouldn't of but I. don't think he ever plays again. I think it's unfortunate, but I think it's the reality. By the way your point stylistically is actually a fascinating one. The League is moving toward Kapernick style. That's that's actually a very interesting point that a lot of teams, the Arizona's and the Baltimore's. He would be perfect fed. All right I just knew this topic worked up, so you Daryl Moore's your friend. He's my friend, but you know this blame. The media on harden stuff and I'm like collide doesn't talk to the media and we love him in K.. D. is prickly with the media and we love him in West yells at us and we like him. Harden is just simply disappointed us in too many big postseason spots and Michael. Jordan ruined it for everybody. If you're not good in the postseason, we don't care about you. You're just not good and I make. Harden style is problematic by game ninety. He's worn down in my unfair. Well I think he has shown that he wears down a bit in the postseason. Thank your when you say. Do you have hearing? Colin Coward say the media loves Russell Westbrook will someone to tell Colin Coward. That'll be great news for Russell Westbrook to here. I don't know that I think the media loves Kevin Durant either now. He did a lot of that to himself. Here's the deal on harden. Here's where.

You're doing wrong to cup, shoot arrest you. But people should lose their lives and be on on and not a threat to the police. That's what we witnessed. How, how could you turn a blind by? Thank you Colin Kaepernick. Thank you! He tried. He was condemned Brian No. You know what he was saying for years ago. This is wrong. He was trying to save George Ford's life indirectly. No more war. Yeah. How can people see that? I, hear you listen and. Here's the. Thing is if I get pulled over. I'm not fearful of my life as a white guy. What peop- black people feel the same way, and you can't feel that way right now you know and that's horrible, but I think it's important for white people non black people to understand what that would feel like you're speeding. You run a red light with. You're fearful for your life that you're pulled over. You have to really. Stop talking. Shut up for a second. Just listen and really think what that would feel like because you gotta understand people what they're feeling to understand what they're saying also real quick ROB G.

"None of that matters on the road. At night, none of it. Does why e from his fearful for his sons? And Black Mothers and sisters and brothers are fearful when this stuff happens. If. You're doing wrong to cup, shoot arrest you. But people should lose their lives and be on on and not a threat to the police. That's what we witnessed. How, how could you turn a blind by? Thank you Colin Kaepernick. Thank you! He tried. He was condemned Brian No. You know what he was saying for years ago. This is wrong. He was trying to save George Ford's life indirectly. No more war. Yeah. How can people see that? I, hear you listen and. Here's the. Thing is if I get pulled over. I'm not fearful of my life as a white guy. What peop- black people feel the same way, and you can't feel that way right now you know and that's horrible, but I think it's important for white people non black people to understand what that would feel like you're speeding. You run a red light with. You're fearful for your life that you're pulled over. You have to really. Stop talking. Shut up for a second. Just listen and really think what that would feel like because you gotta understand people what they're feeling to understand what they're saying also real quick ROB G. Joe Borough chimed in I would love for you. And then we'll hear from the listeners about athletes getting involved but Joe Borough. Went to twitter rob. You have the. To twitter earlier this afternoon. This is what he said. He said quote. The black community needs our help. They have been unheard for far too long. Open your ears, listen and speak. This isn't politics. This is human rights. That's what it's about and I. Get it. No one's asking everybody to be an activist.

"And Fox sports radio producer. He will join us for that. If you missed the first hour of the show we did talk about. Athletes and their voices, and using their platform to voice things Brian. We know what's going on in Minneapolis, George Floyd the death. What a spark riots and And all of the. Stuff that we're dealing with currently and you know they've been stuff all over the country, different cities of broken out in riots and looting and fires and destroys destruction of police, property and cars. People frustrated mad about what's happened. and. I know a of people think. I don't want my athlete I. Just want him to play ball. I just wanted to hit home runs for me I. Want them to run the football. I just wanted to score twenty two points. And that's all I want for my athletes. I just don't think it's that simple. And I think when people say that. Even like the NFL. People say ell. It's only about four Paul early about football here. Brian No, can I remind you of a circumstance and I want you to tell me if it's Paul. or about social issues okay Okay Yep, in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred eighty nfl took away the super bowl from the state of Arizona. Do you remember that Brian Yeah? And the reason they took away the super bowl and told Arizona that it wouldn't never get another super bowl. If they did not have the Martin. Luther King Holiday as a paid holiday. Do you remember that? Yeah, I do? Remember that was that football? Brian was `social. That was definitely not football it's. Wanting -ocial so the NFL win after even though the people of Arizona voted not for it to be. A paid holiday. Despite it being a national holiday, right? They decided that it wasn't. And the NFL when against the vote of the people of that state. And threatened them without a super bowl. Guess what happened, Brian No. Things Change Real quick! Wow, the next time. who was on the ballot I guess he got changed, and then they got the super bowl back. What a shocker! And my point bringing up that story is there is a moral obligation sometimes from people who have a platform who can help. Change. Wrong to right. Out of what the athletes go stumping for every. Politician and every Senate, race and every. The. Any any kind of a situation where where it's. Pitting candidates against each other. But in big moments where things can be changed, and you could have a positive impact on people. I salute those people. Yeah, that's that's why I have more respect. For Colin capper today than ever before four years ago. He was willing to give up his fame his fortune, his job and career, and the NFL to say what was going on was not right, and he could sit silent. Brian most people can't do that. Most people aren't leaders enough. Most people can't keep can't sacrifice especially for people that they have no connection to Colin Kaepernick did not those victims, those unarmed black men who were being killed by police? He did it because he thought it wasn't right. and. He wanted to bring attention to it in a peaceful way. All the people who condemned to were wrong. You know why. Four years later. We saw the death the murder of George Floyd. The same thing Colin Kaepernick was protesting about. Indeed athletes who have a platform. And can help cause change in a positive way. Should use that platform I. Hear you man and really think about it this way to. If you look at a guy like Joe. Borough number one overall pick in the NFL draft. If, he's speaking out and saying the black community needs us right now, right? I don't know how you don't have any opinion whatsoever as a prominent black athlete. When it comes to a situation like George Floyd being killed right like the way you set this up initially, if a media member sticks a mic in front of a player's face, and says hey, what do you think about? The the situation with George Floyd. If that person says you know what I just want to keep it about football, right like that's just never going to land well. You don't have to be an activist to the nth degree in. Ten lives is there's nothing but activism. It doesn't have to go to the nth degree like that, but if difficult, if there are white athletes like J. J. Watt Joe Bro Speaking Out I. Think is a prominent black athlete. He would least have to offer your two cents instead of saying hey too hot button. I can't touch that it goes way than just football and you know what you just said it like. Hot Pardon you just saw a guy murdered by the police or Armed. In handcuffs it comes pin. Yeah, what? What? What? What? What is controversial? What can't you speak on? Brian, tell me. You saw that in. Oh, I can't talk about that yet. But what? How could you not have an opinion on that? It was horrifying. Anybody who saw. How did you watch that? And not think it was horrifying. Yeah, and I think you can say that and have a reasonable stance and speak out against injustice and not tick off a ton of people right. If you say that was inhumane, it was incomprehensible what happened to George Floyd. That can't be the country that we live in. If that offends people I. Don't know what to tell you because that's the truth. You're offended by the truth at that stage. So if there's a prominent athlete that has a platform that says just that I don't know why you would. Say A little too hot I don't WanNa get near that. I just think that's wrong to do. So and Brian said this my whole life. The, only people worse. Than the people, committing crimes and hurting people and killing and maiming and Robin all that. All the good people who know right from wrong who turned the other way? And and don't do anything about. Yeah. Those, are the people who how can you do it? How can you allow yourself to turn a blind eye to it? Even if it's not happening to anybody, you know or your family Bryan that doesn't have to be your cousin or your uncle or your father there to have compassion for that man, does it? I wanted to pick your brain real. Quick Rob, because I think this is important. When you think about what happened to George, Floyd and for someone who isn't black to have an understanding of not only what that feels like, but also the aftermath we Ephraim from Salaam on the show, and he explained it. He's like I've got a couple of young boys I'm thinking. Could this be something that they encounter later in life right and he also brought up when you've got people with guns outside of. State buildings upset that they can't go out in public, but we don't have the same thing. After the George Floyd incident it sends the message that either people don't care enough or they flat out. Don't care at all, so. When it comes to those things as you receive it a member of your race, and it just seems like people either don't care or don't care enough. How does that make you feel and I think it's important for people that aren't black to understand what that feeling is like. No, no doubt about it This is just an important issue for a lot of people. And I I I think people have to I really. I don't understand. Bryan as as a black guy who's been stopped by the police. It's a terrifying experience because and I've told you this before Brian earlier in the show. I have cousins family member to New York City cops detectives law enforcement's in my family. My brother was in Atlanta Cop. He's an FBI agent. So this is not an anti cop. Thing, okay? 'cause I not a good cop state there in my family. But, there are bad cops to. And when you're on that, brody and there's nobody else there Bryan. And you get pulled over terrifying. I don't know what's going to happen. I don't. They don't have a masters degree from Columbia. They don't have a national radio show on Fox sports radio. They don't know pal was skipping. Shannon that fest one. A column for Deadspin..

Don't know is no this, but Eliza Milano at Scott Beore beefing on twitter and ultimately ended up with them blocking each other, because they have different political beliefs whatever. My problem is I'd always thought they were on the show together, and it turns out. I was thinking that Tony Danza the entire time, not Scott. But either way. We're GonNa do this topic anyway. Because I was really proud of it when I came up with it. What's wine TV Sitcom either friendship or relationship or family? That have you found out in life? They couldn't stand each other that it would really bother you. So let me let me start off with Brian now because he's new to the show Brian. What are you got?

If there was a falling out. There was a beef, and both will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff blocked each other on twitter. The world might stop revolving. That can't happen.

"Reason only I can't stand, and it makes my skin crawl when teams with losing records make it in the playoffs, if one through sixteen would eliminate teams when losing records making it in the playoffs, then I'm forward. Problem. I hate it. Here's the problem. When you when you start to get rid of CA- conferences and it's the travel part that Brian talked about and then also imagine if you had an NBA playoffs, where team from the East Coast War and involved, and it was basically I'm just saying you add a Western heavy playoffs where twelve of the sixteen teams came from the West. That's what you also don't want to be a part of yeah, and I do I love the tradition of it to rob where goodness you think about the last dance where it starts off. Even before the ninety s bowls where the Pistons they couldn't get past the Celtics and then the bulls. They can't get past the Pistons and the story lines that come from that. If you have one through sixteen every year, you just don't have as good of a chance to have that same story line play out and I think that's unfortunate. Definitely, Joseph in Virginia. You're on the odd couple of Fox sports radio was up Joseph. Getting Unit! Sellers rabbi. See why you'd be angry all the time to work at a team man you. Always. HEAR ME AND ALEX and Steve to say. Rob. So, Rob and crispus. Aw, man. They got the life. I appreciate you big time, but I gotta say I I would have to go with the twenty two teams I feel like if you put those twenty, two and I mean that extended out at least in the western conference. You get teams like Sacramento. New, Orleans and Portland, that those are young exciting teams as far as what Sacramento in New Orleans those guys were kind of getting together getting it together at the end I think there's a lot of there'll be a lot more I. Guess you could say narratives that would come out of it if you few expanded it out, I know it's reaching for I on, but we're in a a pandemic in the NBA. Hot Topic Right now, so yes. Shouldn't be about one player and trying to squeeze him in they should. I'm serious. That's the one part that I. Don't like is as you dollar. Ants GonNa be a tough out, though John Line what you noticed is about the Pelicans you know it is ins. On Brian and my right. It's a big part of it. There's no doubt. That the what the plan is that they hit us with whatever it is will tell us what they're truly thinking. If it's all these teams that are invited, they're if they're playing about eight games. We'll then. It's the TV contracts. They're trying to appease that if it's hey, we need. Four bubble teams in the West. That's going to be Zion right, so their plans will tell us what they're thinking. Now I agree with you but I I'm always like. I'm always like suspicious because I think the NBA had little W.. W.. E. In it and they love that stuff all right Brian California. You're on the odd couple of Fox sports radio, what's up Brian. Okay what about Marty in Kentucky Martyr you're on the Fox, sports.

"You sort of ratings for Michael Jordan's documentary, right? Through. Everything that's on except for Lance Armstrong's documentary. Well. Everything. That thing go to know. We don't care about cycling any louder than that thing, Bob. Put You got my point is that you have a captive audience you don't have all we need is games. We don't need whipped cream and we don't need newfangled clowns coming out of a mini car. We don't need any of that. Just give us some good basketball. Some good match what used to seeing and we will be there and we'll watch I. Know it man. It's true you're right. Were starving right now? If you're starving for a meal and someone throws. You I don't know some ramen noodles which I love by. That's going to feel like a five star restaurant right season seven course meal. That's what we're at for sports, so yeah, you don't have to have some crazy new format. It's bad basketball. At least it sports back on the TV you know I agree, but it feels like they're trying to put whipped cream on my fried chicken. I don't need whipped cream. The fried chicken tastes good just the way it is okay. I'm going to get you out of your comfort zone because. tweeted this out where? You've got Adam silver. His final recommendation is expected to be a twenty two twenty two teams invited to resume the season. So if there is some sort of play in tournament, or let's just keep it simple. Let's say there are twenty two twenty two teams. That's what they decide. What do you want them to do from there? In terms of a play in or a postseason format? That's a good question I. Just don't know I. Mean I don't know I. Don't have the stand in front of me. Are there teams that are instead of sixteen, or there are teams that are half a game out or one game out, and they feel like it's not fair to those teams or they. You know I mean that. That's that's what it would have to be, but to me those teams. I still would just take the top sixteen to eighteen from each conference, and it would just have to be tough. Luck to the teams that are a few games out or whatever that's. That's what it sounds like to me is that they're trying to pacify the couple of teams that might only be a game or two wild and thought. Maybe we could make the playoffs like like the Portland Trailblazers who were in the Western Conference finals a year ago, right? Yeah, right now, Brian near on the outside looking in right. Yeah, they are I agree with you rob. I would just the top sixteen teams, but if they say you know what we're GonNa do twenty teams. What I would do in this option has been discussed I would take the four bubble teams in the western conference because they have better records than the nine and ten place teams in the East, so I'll take those teams the. Blazers designs I'm sorry. The pelicans actually, wants ion. Ordinance Slip Yeah. Yes are the kings and the Spurs I would make those. I John In. You know that all day. Absolutely I would take those four Western Conference bubble teams. If they insist on twenty teams right I would have them do it out. Whoever emerges from those four teams then they would play the grizzlies best of three series. That's your eight seed if they insist on twenty teams the grizzlies. Advantage for being the current eight seed, they shouldn't have to jump through all the hoops that the teams below them have to jump through. That's not fair to them. No, they're they're. They've played well enough to be in the top eight. When the season stop right. Yeah, I just don't understand why that would be fair. Coming up next on the GEICO studios. We want to hear from you. Are you on board with the NBA play in terms of plan? If it's up to you, what do you want the full? The postseason format to be his up eight, seven, seven, ninety, nine on Fox, eight, seven, seven, nine, nine, six, six, three, six, nine. We'll continue the conversation with you next.

"It hasn't stopped. Where is the NFL now? We're both people. Who thought that Cowan Copper, Colin Kaepernick was being American. Yes, right I see. This is what I'm talking about. All the people who said he shouldn't project like that right? Why those? Nothing to do with the sports yeah. This is the reason. He's protesting on that stage because this has been an epidemic in this country for us. For. Decades upon decades, and that is the problem. If Colin Kaepernick doesn't sacrifice his career to bring awareness, it doesn't stink as much as it does today. Point Hoping. That's exactly the point, so I've always said look. You can't tell a person how to. Right right, you can't say Oh, do it a different way because protests is supposed to make you uncomfortable to sign a light on something that needs to be addressed, it's like. When you when you blocked the fall five. Were you get their attention? Will people figure out what's going on here? What's how? Oh yes. When you disrupt normal life in in the flow of mice with pain, and and and and protests, people have to pay attention right. The world has to pay attention. They arrested his man so fast. They understand it. It's already lit. The product is lit. Can't put out match. What are you going to do now? What are we doing now? Is this GONNA. Be another case where the officer. Feared for his life or whatever they want to spend and look I'm not anti police. I'm not anti police. I know you're not anti police rob. Your whole family is in law enforcement. Agent I know I know and and and when I'm speaking I don't want people to think of anti police because I believe we need relief. But. Police also need to be policed. Right, where are the people supposed to police them? Those are people who have been letting us down because hey, if you take five. You can pick them five random. Killings of unarmed African Americans over the past two years. If those penalties for those officers were headed down, and they were served Veer Yup. This would change the mentality. That's the problem. Hey, from one last question, I want to jump in here. What about God's we know?.

"You're welcome to the program. I'm good brother. How you doing doing good Brian No win for Chris Broussard, and from we were just talking, and we do out a question about athletes, obviously with all. That's happened in the country in the rioting and George, Floyd being killed. For Athletes? Do you think athletes have some not all obligation to speak out? We even heard Joe Borough on a tweet today. The number one pick who's going to go to the bengals and everything. Come out and voice his opinion on what's happening the country. How how much should players be obligated or feel obligated to do that? So this is this is when things like this happen by the. The incident that happened in Minneapolis. And, people automatically are livewire athletes are why aren't athlete speaking out? To Me Goes, pass the sport, right. This is A. Like this is this is something that's happening in our country, so as Americans and as citizens and and people who have the right. To you know, be arrested and not kill like whatever that is, it goes passports me right. I'm not just an athlete, but I'm a person right if I if I see something I, don't agree with. I have the right to speak out without work in a bank with a work, Eleanor football, team, basketball, team, or any other thing, just like everybody else in this country has the right to so I. Implore Not only athletes, but I implore everyone to speak out when they see injustices. When this stops becoming about old, black and white and starts becoming about. US problem. Right it if a white person sees what happened to this young man and his appalled. Not Be I. Mean You speak out? You say something about it because it's not just us. It's what's happening in this country right, so if something I, if right they, they abolished slavery because it was flat out wrong. Right, but he wasn't his black people saying it was wrong. If that was the case it would have. Nothing would've happened the same with the civil rights movement. It didn't get ramped up and intensified until white Americans on the West Coast, and in in middle, America got to see on TV what was happening to African Americans in the south with the dogs police brutality. The war to hold is by. That's when they join the fight. That's when progress was made. Big Man I'm just curious since this went down on Monday. Just what has been on your mind on your heart as this weakest played out, how have you been feeling just in terms of what transpired on Monday and what? The result has been throughout the week as this is played out. I don't know how many times my soul. Right, my soul can chipped away from me. I didn't know this brother right. I didn't know him at all. I didn't know any of the people who have been killed. But the fact of the matter is this is a systematic. injustice that has been going on in this country. Since the founding of this country when you want to really get down to it, so the fact that. I'm an African American. Man I am raising two African American boys. And I couldn't even imagine them being in the situation when they get older that something like this can happen to them. This is my thought when I see things like this because. Over and over again this country and and the judicial system and law enforcement has turned a blind eye. We're finally getting police officers on social media speaking out about what they saw right. This has been something that that you know you protect your own you. Quiet. called the Blue Wall or Blue Colin. You're on a distance yourself from an Arnold WanNA speak I don't I enough is enough and what I'm telling you. I'm telling you like. The fact that. This is happening the way it is now during the pandemic. We're suffering pandemic and epidemic at the same time. And people are heightened their emotions and empathy or heightened, because we've been locked inside for three and a half months. Right so all you're doing is reacting. To what you see, that's an injustice and my question to the American people is all those people at the guns and the flags, and and and marching because they wanted haircut. And and and go take salon. Where are those people because what we saw that happen? Was Against American people. It wasn't against a black man. It was against us and our freedom. So where those people because you can't sit up here and tell me that was justified, so we're all those people who had a are fifteen and I just WanNa. Haircut and get my nails done. Where are those people with those guns at the capital? That's what I WANNA know. His name is e. from Salaam guests here. On the couple of course, a former NFL Bet Fox sports radio weekend. Hosts e from. From this earlier and was, we started the show I talked about Colin. Captured and I just talked about this is what he was talking about. This was the injustice that he had seen when he decided, he was going to put his football career in jeopardy. Do whatever he had to give up the money. Give up the fame up football. Whatever was to bring light to this here. It is forty years later. And the people who condemned him trying to tell them when you suppose the protests and how you supposed to protest. This was what he was talking about. It hasn't stopped. Where is the NFL now? We're both people. Who thought that Cowan Copper, Colin Kaepernick was being American. Yes, right I see. This is what I'm talking about. All the people who said he shouldn't project like that right? Why those? Nothing to do with the sports yeah. This is the reason.

If Colin Kaepernick doesn't sacrifice his career to bring awareness, it doesn't stink as much as it does today. Point Hoping. That's exactly the point, so I've always said look. You can't tell a person how to. Right right, you can't say Oh, do it a different way because protests is supposed to make you uncomfortable to sign a light on something that needs to be addressed, it's like. When you when you blocked the fall five. Were you get their attention? Will people figure out what's going on here? What's how? Oh yes. When you disrupt normal life in in the flow of mice with pain, and and and and protests, people have to pay attention right. The world has to pay attention. They arrested his man so fast. They understand it. It's already lit. The product is lit. Can't put out match. What are you going to do now? What are we doing now? Is this GONNA. Be another case where the officer. Feared for his life or whatever they want to spend and look I'm not anti police. I'm not anti police. I know you're not anti police rob. Your whole family is in law enforcement. Agent I know I know and and and when I'm speaking I don't want people to think of anti police because I believe we need relief. But. Police also need to be policed. Right, where are the people supposed to police them? Those are people who have been letting us down because hey, if you take five. You can pick them five random. Killings of unarmed African Americans over the past two years. If those penalties for those officers were headed down, and they were served Veer Yup. This would change the mentality. That's the problem. Hey, from one last question, I want to jump in here. What about God's we know?.

"Of George Floyd, and the officers around him if that doesn't hurt your heart. I don't know how I don't know how it doesn't. Just hurt you to see that, and it's one of these things rob, where if you relate this to the sports world? We say this all the time in sports, which is if you wrote that as a script, it was a movie. You wouldn't believe it been unbelievable things that happened in the sports world. You could apply that to the George. Floyd thing I would hope in the year two thousand twenty, if someone was handcuffed and detained on the ground. If you saw that new movie where there was an officer that was kneeling. On that guy's neck on the ground for nearly nine minutes, you would be like that's not even realistic. And he had happened Ted actually happened. Here's the worst part. US wanted to throw this in the worst part. Is that. This is a new. We saw Rodney King on tape handcuffed and be like like a dog. Do you remember that was one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one? There was videotape of it. Luckily there was some guy on his balcony. Who caught it all on tape? And guess what those four offices got off. They were acquitted. Would videotape proof that Rodney King wasn't making a move or being aggressive? He was just beat like a dog. And here we are in twenty twenty. Brian No. It's still going on, yeah. It is, it's insane and that officer. Derek Shaven he was charged with third degree murder today in manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, so if you're looking for changing, hoping for change and obviously. Even if you're not black in this country as a white guy, I'm hoping for massive change where things like this are a thing of the far distant past. Hopefully, this is a step toward that. Be Interesting to see how the case progresses, but. My heart goes out to his family and anybody else. Who is troubled by it because you talk about something that's beyond troubling the video of George Floyd and the guy kneeling on his neck. It's just words can't describe it. HOW INHUMANE! How INCR- comprehensible that whole situation was Brian, we got robbed G. An athlete's chiming in. Some athletes don't want to get involved. You know some people and everybody's different. Everybody can't be an activist. Everybody can't stand up front. That's why certain people's our leaders and heroes right? Everybody can't be that guy, so I'm not knocking people who who don't want to do it, but there comes responsibility sometimes when you have a platform, and you can reach many, and that's the case and rob G. You have some tweets and stuff that you want to read and I think these are. The. First one you're going to read is pretty strong. That's right. You talked about earlier in the show you thing you open it up with it Joe Borough. The number one pick an NFL draft now the quarterback with the bengals. He tweeted as a few hours ago, said the black community needs our help. They have been unheard for far too long. Open your ears, listen and speak. This isn't politics. This is human rights. Hold on now,.

Brian Welcome to the odd couple, but hey man. I'm happy to be your number. Two Guy Right like that's. It's an honor that I carry with me. I got a question for you. How come you don't do the? Thing that Chris. BROUSSARD's talented I'm just. Good Okay saw I guess. If you worked at the New York, times? You can pull that off. That's true now. I heard the golden pipes. You're showcasing yesterday with the Singalong stuff so I know you have it in. You don't WanNa. Take away from your guy. Broussard I get it. You know I'll let him have that, but Bryan we're ready to go. I'm excited to do the show with you on this funky flashback Friday. Let's welcome in the odd couple of crew could. We wouldn't be able to do this. Fine radio program without them. Of course rob G is our producer. Alex is our engineer and the pro's pro. One of the best update anchors in all of radio history. Mr Steve Sager So I call him a friend of America Rob. Say about here that so there you have it and we have all of we're in full effect on his funky flashback Friday Brian. No Gimme a little elbow room to unpack this. Because this has been boiling me all day, we already know what's going on in Minneapolis and the riots and the burning and and people protesting and protest broken out all over the country. In wake of what we all witnessed the horror of George Floyd, who was killed in the hands of the police with the police officers? Knee cutting off his air. In his neck and people have reacted and people have responded athletes from all over have also chimed them, but here's my point, and this is the point. I to get through. I think people were so far off base. When Colin Kaepernick decided to take in the. To draw attention to what was going on in this country, which I e was mostly unarmed, black males killed by police. There was an epidemic at one point. It was awful and we were seeing it the difference between years ago and now we had the videotape we saw. There was happening at an alarming rate. That was four years ago. Think about it. And people pooh-poohed him. Take that somewhere else did out of the way of my NFL game. I don't WanNa. See that I'm only here for four Paul. That was the cry. They were so wrong Colin Kaepernick was right. He saw the injustice. He saw the crimes being committed. And refused to be silent. The only people who are worse than the people perpetrating the crimes. Or the good people who turn away and don't say anything and allow it to happen. Those are the bad people because they know right from wrong. They know it's wrong and they don't stand up. You could talk about all you want Alcala. He couldn't play anymore. He gave up his career no big deal with a backup. He gave up his his limelight. He gave up his job as NFL quarterback. who was making millions who had a good live? Who could easily turn and said I'm not getting involved. It's easier not to get involved. He got involved. He was to prevent. More of what we continue to see. In George Floyd. That's what he was against. That's what he was trying to stop. And people condemned him. For non violent protest, he didn't make anybody else neil with them. He did it on his own. I have so much respect. For Colin Capture Nick. When this chapters, we we right, what went on? He will be on the right side of history. He was selfless to give itself give up itself his famous fortune. To help people, he didn't even know they were family members. They were just people who look like him or had the same brown skin color. Why are we so afraid to do the right thing? And contempt condemn people. It was like nine, hundred, Sixty, eight, eight with John, Carlos and Tommie Smith. That was their moment. They won the battles they could have just accepted and and gotten their medals and gone home. They raised those black gloves and protests the black fist. To bring attention to what was going on back in the states. And the riots, and what was happening to black people, those are American heroes. And people who don't understand. How this country was put together, you need to do a history lesson. 'cause it is when people take the streets and can't take it anymore. Go back and read about the Boston Tea Party. And, what was done through the tea in into the harbor and said they won't take taxation without representation, and the king could stick it. That's what they did. They didn't do anything polite or write a note until the King of we're sorry, we're not gonNA do. WE'RE NOT GONNA pay the tax? That's not what they did. And I close on this. For the athletes and the other people of prominent will willing to lend a voice and the athletes especially who are now chiming in and saying this is right. We need to listen to this Colin Kaepernick. What's right to bring attention to this and people who have a platform who can? Help with change that platform I, get it. You want to sell pizza and sneakers and Soda Pop. You're willing to send out messages to people about that. What about sending out a message about what's right and wrong? And what's going on right now is wrong. And, thank God you're other people out there and other athletes who are chiming in saying enough is enough. You know is crazy. Rob Is if.

"Cold. That is until I start researching it. I'm standing right. Portage Pass and Alaska. My Name is John Wall Zach and what I found is one of the strangest stories. You've never heard. Did he indicate what was in the suitcase? He said it was a bone. So join me as I travel from Arizona to the Arctic Circle trying to crack this case. Listen to missing in Alaska on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you find your favorite shows we have all been watching. The protests which included parts of Minneapolis burning as people are outraged about the police. Brutality The killing of George Floyd In Minneapolis and now the National Guard has been requested to come to Minneapolis to combat the looting and the rioting amidst the protests Colin Kaepernick recently spoke out about the protests. He posted That they just don't get it because all the national discussions have not stopped the horrendous killings of black men so it's time to ramp up the protests and not worry about keeping the peace. Well this you know what does that. That's a Great State Colin. If you're going to be out there with them disrupting the peace and putting your life on the line and you run the risk of getting shot murdered and going to jail. That's fine if that's what you're going to do but less not those of us who are not going to put it on the line like that. Protest is wonderful. I'M IN TOTAL AGREEMENT OF PROTESTS. But we cannot send our folks out there without a game plan to just go out there and start doing acts of violence because now that that violence allows them then to used a form of violence which they don't need a real good reason for anyway. And I'm not a proponent of sending our young people out there streets if you're not going to get out there in them streets with him so no I believe in protest. I think there's a way to protest. I don't want to promote violence. Because I don't want their hate to get turned back on which is all they do. They're to bring a national guard. And just start killing folks and then the distraction will be beyond that and not on the real issue. She s just like no. No College campus the officer. Who Killed Him yes and I understand the anger and they have every right to be angry and I understand that when you take the pressed and you keep pushing them and you're not listening to him. I know what it turns into. I was in the riots in Cleveland as a young boy. I was in them. Riots I went up there and when my parents told me not to go up there I watched all my neighborhood bird in Cleveland. Soit and that was back when in the seventies or sixty eight. Yeah we're still going through this. We're sourcing people are so mad right now. And but now for a man like Colin Kaepernick. We have to be careful brother. And I and I love Colin Kaepernick. I love the kneeling. I understood what he was doing. But they flip the script boning but now this right here man. We cannot send young people out in the streets like this without an organized plan. Now we won't big but put you force them out there when you don't listen to them. So data voting data went on. And ask you to pay attention. Not a sense stuff on five. That's what's happens when you take oppress people and you keep pressing them and don't expect pressure busted pipe charge for ten charters yesterday. We look at this video and we're saying in this moment. What else does the? Da Need to see why this law investigation they. They say they fire the four officers right away immediately. He did what the judicial system. Here we go. Now Watch these here. We go and investigate it now watches. Then we're going do a convene a grand jury when a black person kill white person. We don't do grand juries. You ask going jail immediately. We saw him with his knee on his mas- neck. As as Benjamin crump said for nine straight minutes two point what is white man so comfortable. He put his hands path. Come on and screaming remain helped me have the situation under control. You have no fear of your life. You're not in any danger you're in your pocket and this man is pleading for his life and you ignored him. That's murder that's murders. Yeah go Joe. Hard to watch them with that press conference yesterday. Those bleed leaders of those particular counties and areas. They were all white. No minority representation up there in that moment so not calling the national guard. Yeah you serious right all right coming up next. We're going to switch gears here Nephew Tommy in the building with today's prank phone call. That's coming up right after this. You're listening to hardy morning show..
