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

No further explanation is yet been given by Cuban or the Mavericks, the league spokesperson. Said that under the unique circumstances of this season, teams are permitted to run their pregame operations as they see fit. The national anthem has become a point of contention and the in the country after Colin Kaepernick began kneeling as a form of protest against police brutality and injustice against minorities in the country, Of course. It has taken place now in pretty much all sports don't know if that has anything to do with it. But because of you said that the NBA just changed its course.

Does CBS have a responsibility to set a progressive tone with Super Bowl 55 coverage?
"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
"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

Interview with Calvin Baker
"Talk A lot about Colin. Kaepernick who of course has become far more than an athlete and more than any athlete of his generation has become super politicizing talk about how sports is a narrative of nationhood and definitely think that you could write eight the story of modern America on his last Assi What What do you? What do you? What are you? What are you thinking about? Colin Kaepernick. I think he's great. I think the truth almost didn't come to light. They. They suppress it for so long and so long and so long I think that it is. Emblematic of what's going on the country as a whole where you have this man and expressing is. Liberal belief. and. Becomes a lightly We tell ourselves we're in the twenty th century were everything is so diverse, and then you see what a lightning rod that becomes for. White. Anger. Someone expressing pride who is but also like. You can't kill black. That's radical athlete baboots how that's That's where we really are that. You can't say. Retaliates tally is wrong. Those are the hard enforces of racism, which I which I can chew colonialism in larger forces and patterns. How advanced how might and can the society be if you if it's if it's controversial as it was in that moment? Thankfully it's I think. As this moves forward. He's becoming raise established himself as one of a line of. Athletic spokespersons yet if you go back on tradition begins. Muhammad Ali's or the world and the Jim Brown's the world who's as like Oh as black versus one of the few people who is allowed any sort of visible Jackie Robinson in different. S. And that's end. And then he became corporate. Right. But the happiest people's right night. I talked about Jim Brown on the NFL who made the decision to leave NFL. 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

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.

"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.

Sports Strike Against Racism
"This summer athletes have taken the lead by using their platforms to stand up against police brutality. The WNBA, has consistently protested throughout the year with numerous players even sitting the season out and on August twenty, six, twenty, twenty, four years after Colin Kaepernick began his anthem protests something historic happened athletes across the board streit and refuse to play today we're discussing reactions to this incredible moment in sports. This is the not. On August Twenty Third Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by police in Kenosha Wisconsin where we're calling this episode on. August twenty seven twenty twenty the day after the Milwaukee Bucks and players from the NBA WNBA NFL. Major League Baseball Major League soccer and tennis champion Naomi Osaka all refused to play or practice in an unprecedented strike in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake the NBA postponed the playoffs for two days. The first time that games have been postponed in this manner since Bill Russell led a strike in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, one after a day of deliberation players in the. NBA. Playoff Games pending further action. You're excited I. Know You're excited for sports to return obviously, this season has been one of a kind and unprecedented in. So many ways I want to know how do you feel now the players are using their platform in this way to be honest I feel this very strange sense of excitement. I need some really tragic kind of set of circumstances but I have been feeling conflicted after NBA Games kind. Came back I had been motivated by occurrences like kyrie irving standing in solidarity with Wnba players saying like Oh actually, I'll pay your salary. If you don't feel like you can play whether it's you know a reaction to corona virus or your desire to protest how support seeing. Lebron Kinda start almost every post game interview with a demand to arrest the cops that killed Brianna. Taylor. That made me really happy Siamese. Floor of the same energy that we have tours. Justice for Briana told, even seeing black lives matter on jerseys and in the court kind of made me feel a little better. I realized yesterday that this was the inspiration really been waiting for but now I'm wondering what comes next of course, how were you reacting to everything? You know I'm not like the world's biggest sports fan I do. I am a fan of black women and so seeing the WNBA protests. Throughout this year, but especially, the summer that felt released significant. Still I've always hesitant to look to athletes during these like highly political moments just because it's not the job that they set out to do. But you know as I started to see people sharing statements aerial Atkins from the Washington mystics we're going to say, well, we need to say and people need to hear that. They don't support us I'm fine with that. At the end of the day I'm GonNa make them good anywhere that I have to it basketball. It's not. Just what it is Chris Weber's telecast if not now when Not doing a pandemic. and. Countless lives being lost if not now when that is me in tears so lucid in that moment and so real and also just seeing how so many other sports leagues join them in protests were. Teased. Happen I mean it just shows. The hate people's heart. The thing is though is that as we were starting to develop this episode today so much has changed already in that the players in the NBA have agreed to return to playing the playoff season. Later, this week I don't think that all the progress is gone but I'm wondering what what happens. Now you know thought that same whiplash like I said, I felt like this was finally the type of inspiration leadership that I've been hoping to see from such a wide body players. Leaks, cross-border. It was truly abused beautiful, and I think now we need to do more I'm hoping that that since this is now on the table, players can put more pressure on owners to. Work with the people they are most connected to some of the richest and most powerful people in this nation are in the speed dial of most NBA owners even just the day if feels effective part of I, think resuming the season was the players putting pressure on the NBA to address the social unrest we've been dealing with all summer in some ways. So they started a foundation that's dedicated to investing in black causes. They're giving hundreds of millions of dollars they've given like you know the players, some approved protest phrases that they can use. They can put black lives matter on the courts and things like that and what I liked about this moment is at the NBA players were like that's what I usually do. And that's actually still not enough. So I'm hoping that we can see continued forward motion in that way something that I enjoy in this moment was seeing the NBA take the WNBA's league they have been holding it down all your curves pressing in. So many ways the thing is, is that WNBA, players, they don't make as much money as NBA players do they have really put their necks out there for social justice speaking up. Protecting black lives in many ways, it seems in some ways that they have more to lose by doing it. You know I am maybe two degrees below cautiously optimistic. That is a lot better than cynical, which is where I was before.

Forty Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick first to Caen in response to police violence against black people me ultimately is to bring awareness and make people know realize what's really going on in this country.

Back, we're calling for justice, Jacob Lick and demand offer beheld count I got this little girl here that we see every day his life matters he needs to know that he can do what he wants to do whenever he leaves his house as a black man as a former player.

"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..

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. 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.

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?.

Gawkers coming back from the dead sort of care plans to bring back a controversial website and these plans are questionable at best, but I, I'll. Apper Nick Knight. Definitely not our pension. We're going to talk about bonzes to the ad. We're going to talk about that. So we're going to figure out what it all. Nike recently made the civil rights activists and NFL player. I should say inactive NFL player Colin Kaepernick the face of it's just do it campaign just do it is the conic Nike tagline conic Nike campaign. And this year happens to be the thirtieth anniversary of just do it campaign. So the tagline for happenings, believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything at the tagline. An image ad in the video at the TV commercial that copper Nick stars in and a lot of people around up a lot of people who I mean, first of all, I should say the ad is encouraging to a lot of people who stand with cabinet in who stood with him throughout his police brutality protests, kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games. You know, it's, it's encouraged a lot of people. It's also irritated. A lot of people who wished that Colin Kaepernick would just shut up in play football or not even play football at this point needs in and you basically have a lot of conservatives across the country setting their Nike apparel on fire and. A guy who set his shoes on fire while marrying was not a good why he didn't just I should say shutout to that one guy who said his shoes on fire while wearing them and then did in fact share images of his feet at hospital skin peeled off in jarred. So that's where we're at right now. Makinen Colin Kaepernick and the protests and it's it's sort of getting out of control. Now the, there's a mayor in Louisiana who banned Nike heat Unilab read on this story a little bit. I know that he banned local facilities from buying Nike equipment because he was angry about the ad. Right? I do believe there is also a store in Denver that sort of decided to sell its Nike equipment at a discount because they were mad about that. There's been a lot of get on clearance sales. There's a lot of really weird protests of of the at. Right? And this is all because copper Nic, you know, is the figurehead for these the the protests that NFL games during the national anthem of players, kneeling as a statement about police brutality right says this, this iconic posts black lives matter form of. Tests. So why people are letting their shoes on fire. I don't really functionally have trouble understanding with this. I should say, sports fans have done this before, and then in more trivial contest. Remember they burn bronze, jersey NFL, like people accidentally set themselves on fire during that. But that was like a less political. I'm not gonna lie to you. I distinctly remember during like the bulls dynasty in the nineties. My mom got all these like Seattle SuperSonics apparel, and we stuff we like built an SuperSonics effigy and lit it on fire that had nothing to do with politics. We just hated the sandals. So why people have definitely been burning athletic equipment for dubious reasons for a long time, like I can personally attest to that. While burning it to oppose a protest. Movement against police brutality is certainly a height of burning athletic apparel Coulter. I think those people are gonna have to replace their Nike humanity. Yes, but it it, you know, coincidentally Nikki's online sales, at least sales in their web store up like thirty one percent since they unveiled the ad with cabernet, we'll unveiled the whole campaign happening, but meanwhile have is seemingly blacklisted by the NFL. That's sort of what makes this complicated to me rate is tapper. Nick is out of work basically. And so Nike has come along and said, well, you know, we gotta just do it campaign. We gotta run. You can be the star of that, and we're obviously going to pay pay millions of dollars to be the starring role in this. This advertisement campaign. And so in a way it's like tap has..

This was a younger crowd, but still even if you're in your forties and fifties and your sixty seventies, this is something that follows people around, and if you don't start getting used to it now where you are right now in your life is not likely to change, you have to make change the way that this presents itself is that you think something and your frayed you're going to get a reaction that's not going to be positive. So because of that, a lot of people put on the brakes to what they really want to say. Just this week as an example, an anonymous op Ed in the New York Times, it was bold, but it was an onerous that doesn't have the same weight is when you put your name behind something last episode of talked about Colin Kaepernick, Nike very bold ad featuring Colin Kaepernick. Their name was on it. His name was on it. Lot of backlash on Twitter, but results matter, and here's what the results are. This is an article from time despite the back. Clash in the wake of Nikes endorsement of Colin Kaepernick the sports where companies reported a thirty one percent increase in sales. Nike sales grew thirty one percent from Sunday through Thursday over the Labor Day holiday this year compared to the previous year according to Edison trends, bold works, but you've got to put your name on it. If you feel a certain way, people are gonna find out anyway. We can't keep secrets in this culture. How long do you think that the New York Times op-ed guy has I give it till the end of the year. It's probably going to be before the election. We've got maybe a couple of months. I'm giving it four months max before we find out who this guy is. If you're thinking already, you might as well say it and if you're going to say it, you might as well put your name on it. When you do this on your podcast, you're going to attract the listeners who are also thinking what you're thinking. The maybe they're not saying anything, and maybe if they are saying something they're non Mus something related to this subject, a very well known broadcast.

If you've heard one, Dave Ramsey episode, you've heard them all, but is that bold persona the he has paying down debt, big deal, duh. They teach us stuff in high school, but this guy's had years and years of success.

"I got all that. That's all happened and we completely. And I'm trying to just saying for him to give any quarter to Colin Kaepernick here shows that I think Colin is winning words or whatever, whatever. I'm just saying that we haven't ever gotten any kind of moderate statement like that from him whatsoever. Skew on this issue. Have we the mecha- question if I tell you I'm gonna do something for you, and I never do it. What? What? What? What? What? What good. On my words, why did the NFL issue that that's, that's that's shocking. I'm surprised by how fitting why pay to him in a very positive light when they haven't done that. Normally, when you hear Colin Kaepernick is about the protests about the anthem is about the military, nine ING. I will give you that Wallace winning, but here's the winning over Tom Brady. I don't know why would Tongo out of his way to like four things that are Nike connected. I don't know, maybe not. I mean, you're dug in on their side. I just don't. I just don't know how much to do from. Like I'm not political like you are. So I'm, I'm more I'm more from a distance about this and what hit me yesterday was g. this is kind of a moderate reaction as opposed to a visceral ugly anti rea- there is still that Al they're burning thing. Right, definitely. That's where I'm going there. Still some of that out there. They're still and you're going to get get. Everybody's gonna be happy, especially when you're fighting for something that you deem appropriate. They're always going to be pushed back because those that are impacted by this, what what's going on. Okay. Why would you wanna do that? And and so you're going to get the pushback from there. The surprising part for me of all this of the reaction is, like I said with what the NFL said, because we hadn't seen anything like different from them skip in this painting Colin Kaepernick and very. So I am. I'm happy that the league that I've represented fourteen years playing and not cover the league. Like to think I'm still a Representative of that league. I'm very proud because the collusion case hasn't even begun yet, really. That's why I'm even more surprised that they would even chime in on this maybe night. Maybe Nike being big sponsor of theirs get because look, the NFL has a lot of sponsors, but Nike is the only one that when you watch that team on the field, usually you see that logo? Yeah, Pizza Hut is official sponsor the NFL and people that logo on jersey, no decals on the helmet. So if this I mean how everybody's looking like, well, why would I do this? We gotta ten your deal. We know in Philly. What we know about the NFL's give ain't giving back no money, no, but it was also widely reported yesterday that Nike gave the NFL no heads up on any of this. So that was good news to me that, hey, they opt, they operated completely independently of the NFL and said, we are going to do this whether you like it or not. Because what would happen if. Didn't runabout NFL. What would have happened to you? Probably more times than not. They shot it now. Sure. But it shows you, they're not incoherence with the this isn't some clandestine partnership that they're trying to pull. We'll well, maybe this is why they did the deal in March and had this on this all along because I'm sure they've done run the marketing data. Okay. Started as you saying a mauling towards Colin Cami, because if you remember getting Nike will be one of the first official apparel outfitters the NFL. But what they were doing, they were doing independent deals, the NFL got upset when that was guess what they did, they gave the whole thing. Yeah. So the NFL doesn't take into you doing things without their permission, so, but they got ten years. 'cause you say this, this contract between Nike and the NFL run through twenty. Twenty eight? Yeah, they got another ten years. They good. So right away early yesterday morning, Nike stock to a hit and soda Dita's and soda, Puma. Although it was reported that they had gone to the bargaining table to try to sign calling also..

Actually, I'm wearing. You're wearing also wearing? No, that's a fake news. Actually. We live in a post Trump America where not everything is the way that it appears, and these are not actually easies with Swoosh on front of them because I don't want people think I'm super cool.

They create their their objects that they break down so that you can buy more. So the thing like marriage. Well, you tell me. So my point is that like you don't go where the shoes just burn them and buy them. All right. When we didn't start the fire. Okay, I'll explain this. So Colin Kaepernick is the football player that would kneel during the national anthem. Right, right. So a lot of people in the middle of the country vary offended about that. People who have families that are veterans or whatever very offended about as well. Right. Some people are not not. Everyone is thinks the same. But then Nike decided to sponsor him which just lit the firestorm of all over again. So everyone who I'm sorry. Sorry about that guys. That's my way of kneeling during the national anthem a- sneezing on the podcast. So everyone was upset about it and people forgot about it, and then Nike decided to sponsor him. So it just looked the whole firestorm up again. So people responded to it by lighting, all of their Nike gear on fire as a way of protesting company for sponsor here. I mean, I just want people to get more creative iron, how to destroy their stuff, you know, like, yeah, it's always a fire, isn't it? Yeah. When are we going to drown our Nike's? Exactly right, or throw them in one of those. Like, you know, there's a YouTube account where it's like, Kim, we shit, yes, smush it Bush or like put him in the washer and put them in the dryer. Yeah, put him in the dryer and then push the dryer down a cliff. I've been destroying my Nikes by just wearing them every day for the last year..
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Did it took about two days and I was wrong on that one. Where Colin was. Right. Okay. Forget Colin Kaepernick gear. I'm gonna buy Malcolm Jenkins gear for the eagles. He's become my favorite player. I said last week, Malcolm Jenkins came out and said this whole thing in our locker room. This this like a banner on our locker room is stupid. We won the Super Bowl. We got win, and again this year, that doesn't mean anything. And I said, I love Malcolm Jenkins. That's how winners think winner celebrate rarely and grind daily and Malcolm Jenkins by coming out as a leader in saying, I hate this stupid banner. Doug Peterson, took it down. I am buying Malcolm Jenkins shoes if they're on the market. That's what leadership is leadership is not like. Due side, big pliant pod. Say leadership is a signed a big client, the accounting firm, everybody going to be here at five, forty five in the morning, ready to work tomorrow because that trophy is not doing your prep tomorrow morning. Malcolm Jenkins is a real leader. I liked him during the anthem protests. I didn't think he was divisive. I thought he was grown up and I love him calling out his organization and they're smart enough and build Elvia to go. You know what Malcolm jangled is right, where Colin was raw Odell Beckham junior, got a massive deal with the giants. I'm surprised a, he's a perimeter player. But here's what really surprises me. He's fragile physically, and sometimes he's fragile emotionally, and I've always struggled pan guys. If physically and emotionally, I'm not sure what I get, but Bucky Brooks guy respect told me last week on the show. He's were six points to me. Odal Beckham's were six Advil for all the headaches all have with him. But in the end, if he's worth six points than I admit, I was wrong. Odell Beckham is worth the dollars and the New York Giants. I thought they figure out a way not to Pam figured out a way to pay him where Colin was right finally said last week, once Sam darnold proves he's good enough to start. You gotta move teddy Bridgewater. There's the jets don't need the best backup quarterback in the league, what they need help in about a day later, the jets traded teddy Bridgewater is that once you could see that darnold was ready to play again, I'm not saying he's better than teddy Bridgewater today, but he's good enough to start in the NF. Fell. Sam darnold would start for about ten teams in the NFL including the jets. Okay. He's not starting for land is desktop for New Orleans. He's not start for Carolina, but he's got enough start for the jets. Then you've got to trade teddy Bridgewater. There's no value in saying, you know, we got the best quarterback threesome in the league. I mean, we got three guys who could win. Darnold can win without defense, Josh mccown, going with that defense, get a draft pick and start rebuilding that offensive line. We're calling was right. We're calling was wrong. And with that, I think actually Joel Klatten I have been defending Jim Harbaugh, but tough one today for me. Let's see how Joel Klatt response to that. Well, you said, are you doing. You said he has to beat Notre Dame? Yeah. Well, isn't Well isn't it. when you're in this business. Sometimes you're going to take some lumps and we're taking lumps today taking lumps. One hundred percent. I'm right there with you. It was ugly. It was ugly, and and the frustrating part for those of us who have been watching his teams for a long time is that they didn't have an identity on offense. Normally, that's one thing that you would hang your hat on is that they had an identity on offense. And generally it was surrounding quality, offensive line play, and maybe not even just quality, offensive line, but dominant offensive line play. In particular in the run game, you gave the stat a little bit earlier in your where you were wrong. One point, seven, six at one point, eight yards per carry. That's terrible. Terrible. In fact, only one other power, five school average less yards per carry last week. Oh my God. I know who it was, who Louisville against Alabama..
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on Build A Big Podcast - Marketing Podcast For Podcasters
"Talk about this Nike ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick. It's a black and white close up of his face. The bottom of the ad says, believe in something even if it means sacrificing everything. Lots of talk online about this. Lots of talking newspapers, television, radio, mostly people taking one side of the argument or the other. I want to talk about how it relates to your podcast. We'll give you similarly the situation to bring you up to speed. The headline from article I just found on CNBC says, nyc shares fall as backlash erupts over new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick here the bullet points. Next shares fall Tuesday after company revealed in new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick the news of capper Nick becoming the face of Nike's marketing campaigns, sparks some backlash from consumers on social media. And the reason for that is in two thousand sixteen, he decided not to stand for the national anthem to protest. Racial injustice, hashtag Nike boycott is trended on Twitter with some people saying they were going to burn their Nike sneakers. Now, what does this have to do with podcasting? Let's look back to that. Initial protests. He decided not to stand for the national anthem to protest racial injustice. That's my understanding of why he did that. That's what he has said. Yet. People wanna make it something different. It's about the flag. It's about disrespecting veterans. You've heard those arguments that's big lesson. Number one people are going to miss understand your message. You can be crystal clear about it. You can spell it out. You can put it in writing. You can say, this is what I'm trying to do. People are gonna put their own spin on it. Knowing this you've got three options. You can put the message out anyway, speak your truth. You can soften the message, try to make it a little bit more palatable, so it doesn't have that kind of backlash, three don't say anything. That's what most people do. Everybody's got an opinion. They lived a spouted on social media. They love to remain anonymous, talk about it in their homes. But when it comes to a podcast, how many people are actually saying anything, not many. Big, listen, number two do not. She's in that first option. Speak your truth. What's the point? What's the point? Let's say you've got a religious broadcast a Christian podcast. You're Christian, you believe in Jesus. Are you going to say you believe in Jesus? Are you gonna talk about a higher power, soften that message, make it a little bit more palatable. Bring people in who may be are offended by Jesus. What are you going to do? Higher power is not going to connect Christians and if you're Christian, that's not your belief anyway. Now I could give you a million examples of this, but I'm not here to give you examples. I'm here to have you think about your message. What is your message? I'm here to let you know that it is okay for you to repel people. That's big lesson number three here just as many people love Nike today as eight them maybe more. When some people saw that ad. This man, Nike gets me, Nike gets what this guy's trying to do. He gets how I feel and they love Nike even more. Was it risky? Hell? Yeah, it was risky. Anything worth doing is risky. You're gonna put your voice to a podcast, put it out into the world. Once it's out, it's out. You don't know who's going to hear it. Maybe some people going to hear it that you don't want to hear. That's a risk. Some people are going to disagree with you. Some people are going to leave you bad reviews. Some people are going to send you a non emails. It happens even at a small level, your podcast go into podcasting, Facebook group, people get into arguments over the dumbest things. Now that Mike sucks. Don't use that. Mike. It sucks. Who cares? The right? Mike is the one that you got in front of you the right Mike is the one that enables you get your podcast out, who cares about microphones you people get into arguments about them. So imagine when he gets into something important, something that really matters, big social issue, something like injustice, police brutality, health care war people are opinionated about those things. And if you talk about any of those things, you're going to get backlash that Christian podcast that I mentioned. I see this happen all the time with Christian authors. They are in a hard place. You think you got a bad magin being a Christian author get Christians on top of Christians. Now it's not Jesus enough. He didn't praise God in the way I wanna praise God. You got the eighth yeast in there. This is to Christian too much Jesus. You can't please anybody. You got to please yourself. You fly your flag. That's what Nike's doing. We'll pay off. We'll see too early to tell today, their stock dropped a little bit, but now he's been around for a long time. Thirty years of the just do a campaign that's his call and cabinet campaign is about. He's not the only athlete involved in this new campaign. Just the guy getting the most press right now from a business standpoint, I think it was brilliant. What did indeed is due today? It's too late for them to make a bold move like this. They look like followers same thing for your podcast or you're going to lead or are you going to follow? We all want listeners. We all want the people to love what we have to say before people want to lead do you. You need to act like it. That means taking. Stand. Are you gonna repel some people? Yes. Hell, yes, you're going to repel some people, but some people are going to love you even more the Nike Swoosh it means something different today. And while there are few people that are burning their Nike stuff, making a big deal about it. There are other people that are going out to the mall to stores like Amazon by Nike stuff, and they're going to wear it in a totally different way. This is a long game just like your long game. We're not going to be thinking about the stock dropping for a couple of days if you years from. Now, we're going to be thinking about who took a stand on this issue and maybe they lost money, but it's a big company they can afford to lose money. You can afford to lose a few listeners by speaking your truth and keeping the listeners that are really into you and making them true fans speak your truth and focus on those people.
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"There is a little bit of butterfly effect here to Colin Kaepernick. He his girlfriend who. Was in northern California if he takes the job with the Denver Broncos and he wins the job as their starting quarterback and whatever you think of Denver and legalization in Colorado of marijuana and what an inverse different than suburban Denver's very conservative in John Elway is super-conservative. I believe he wrote support for for the president on Denver, Broncos stationery, right. So there's probably a little bit of hint of that, but but my thing with the butterfly effect is you do wonder if capper Nick would have taken. The stance would have been power to take the stance if they would have shut it down, they would talk with him early or even he would have been as politically active if he was out of northern California and playing for the Denver Broncos fighting for a starting job. Right? You have no idea. And if that he had not taken any reporter hadn't asked him a question about taking any, where would it be? There's a certain interest in like the whole butterfly effect to it is fascinating to me. Totally. I mean, who am I to say this? But I feel like he is found. This other calling in his life. I mean, I'm sure he wants to be back playing NFL. There's no doubt about that, but he's the voice of so many. He's standing up for so many people right now and. Actually that's more doesn't. Actually. He doesn't actually say I'm not disputing the level of importance that somebody in have he's found another calling in his life. Maybe it wasn't always to be an NFL player, but it's supposed to be, you know, a social Justice warrior, whatever you wanna call it. Right. I just I do think that one thing that that that Elway touches on but doesn't go all in on his. There's more than just the protests people forget that one of the reasons he lost his job when he's with the Niners was he had the headphones on, and he was not seen to be a leader that guys liked there was the struggles in evolving as a quarterback. There was the fact that he knew he was going to get cut by the Niners because salary and he was offered a parachute, albeit with less money with the Denver Broncos there are there are other things can ask you one thing, though, horse. Do you think that if the kneeling didn't happen, the protests didn't happen that he would still not be laying in the NFL. Because I think that well, well, hold on. There's the assumption. We talked about this little yesterday where people think that backup quarterbacks are simply he's better than backup quarterbacks. And that's why he should be playing STAN. Actually, the way it works. A backup quarterback. One usually usually is a lesser version, like a pocket version of the starting quarterback. Right. So you don't wanna have to dramatically change the system. He's not like most guys. On the other hand, you could see him replacing Shawn Watson numbers as his backup other athletic quarterbacks, but but he's never. His mindset has never been to accept where how the market sees him. He doesn't see himself as a backup. The Seattle Seahawks brought him in last year. Instead, he sees himself as a starter and we see him as the starter to. We just don't need a starting quarterback. Like I don't think his mindset matches the salary matches what the job actually entails. If you're a sales manager, like I'm a salesman like now this is for a salesman job. It's. It's different. He gotta get out there and get the connection. So I don't think people forget his. The peak of of cabinet was two thousand thirteen. He's had multiple surgeries. He's not the same player. This is part of it. I'm not disputing that. This is part of why he's not in league, but there are other factors could have done himself some favors by maybe not fighting for that starting role. Which one with Seattle Seahawks or with Denver, he's not going to beat you're coming into Seattle. You're not going to be starting corporate that Russell Wilson's want to start with. He's a starter period stop. So I would guess that in the conversation that he had, he didn't get off the plane. Go like, listen, I'm here for one reason and one reason only to make Russell Wilson better. That's that's my job. Yeah. And that's not only. And you're talking about this yesterday too..
