Negligence probed in deadly Beirut blast.

"Probing the deadly blast that ripped across Beirut focused on Wednesday on possible negligence in the storage of tons of highly explosive fertilizer in a waterfront warehouse while the government ordered the house arrest of several port officials. International aid flights began to arrive as Lebanon's leaders struggled to deal with the widespread damage in shocking aftermath of Tuesday's blast, which the Health Ministry said killed one hundred and thirty five people and injured around five thousand others. Public anger mounted against the ruling elite that is being blamed for the chronic mismanagement and carelessness that leads to the disaster. The Port of Beirut and customs office is notorious for being one of the most corrupt and lucrative institutions in Lebanon with various factions and politicians including Hezbollah hold sway. The investigation is focusing on how two thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. A highly explosive chemical used in fertilizers came to be stored at the facility for six years and why nothing was done about it losses from the blaster estimated to be between ten and fifteen billion dollars with nearly three hundred, thousand people. Now, homeless hospitals were overwhelmed by the injured one that was damaged in the blast hat to evacuate all its patients to A. Nearby field for treatment fueling speculation that negligence was to blame for the accident. An official letter circulating online showed the head of the Customs Department had warned repeatedly over the years that the huge stockpile of ammonium nitrate stored in the port was a danger and had asked judicial offices for a ruling on a way to remove it the head of the Customs Department confirmed that they were five or six such letters to the judiciary. The Congo had been stored at the port since it was confiscated from a Russian ship in two thousand, thirteen on Tuesday it is believed to have detonated after a fire broke out

The Congolese Doctor Who Discovered Ebola

"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it

"So we're happy to be joined today by Brendan Collins and Pablo Puentes of make path. Thanks for joining us today is. Yeah thanks. And you. So, let's start off with the the really broad question of what is make path. Path is a spatial data science. Shop we focus a lot on open source tools, and we bring our passion from various domains. To gs and we aim to build. Inclusive communities around you as tools, and specifically we have a project X. Ray spatial, which focused on roster based spatial analysis, we combine a rationalization pipeline with a set of universal functions which apply an. To Rosser data and also are named in ways that Gif professionals recognize things like surface analysis tools slow hill shade, aspect on these are the names of these tools in the s domain that people recognize. And we offer those tools As a python based library that anybody can access read the source code to and contribute to. We we take open source tools, and we help solve our clients problems by applying open source to their their specific domains. These these domains are very diverse working in areas from healthcare to environmental conservation. Finance Natural Resource Management. We know that geography and the science of of place is very important, too. Many domains and we find ourselves learning about these different domains as we apply open source geospatial tools to their challenges. We we basically bill. We love building open source, really powerful tools, and then if we have clients are like. Hey, what else can we do with these tools? Can you help us apply these really complex problems and what he help? So, how'd you guys come together as? Building this new path path. That was that was bad, wasn't it? Sorry. That's okay well. It's all good. We'll take it. So I WanNa talk about what you've been doing before and how we can. Yeah so I got involved in GSA in the mid to thousands being the S. lab manager for the Center for Sustainable, development, which is a kind of environmental science group in Central America. Working a lot with agriculture. And then moved on to work. As part of the team at the Nature Conservancy looking at site selection for projects in the red area red in this context is reduction in emissions from deforestation and I. Ever Dacian where Zeh countries that have high carbon output can find carbon credits in developing nations to incentivize them to protect vertically sensitive ecosystems, tropical forest is a great example of that, so a lot of these projects occur in in the main tropical forest areas of Brazil Democratic Republic of Congo Indonesia the top three countries for tropical forest. So using I was using DIS to help. Do Site selection to maximize dollars spent? Two or environmental protection through the conservancy We Pablo night. Live in Austin We started to connect in the music scene. Both of us are musicians songwriters. We go out and play open open mics and so that's how can Pablo and I met, but then we quickly realized that we had a lot in common apart from our music background, and over the years as we would spend time together and hard about things it just made sense to get together in work together as a 'cause. We were hitting the same problems, but Pablo represented us. More! Experience on what it is to create a company and create a culture and I represented a bit more of the technical side, and so we were good partners in kind of coming together, 'cause we represent those different areas. in filming kind of some of some of the. The rounding out the breath of our skills, really we we both. We both think we are easy to find and the other one is a really great fun. So I came out about I came out of Stanford about ten years ago, started a company So I had a lot of experience. Products Scaling a company and I. Really liked. What Brennan was doing and we teamed up and I bring a lot of experience again with the company building with a product design had to think about about by these projects and I've always had an interest I don't have a detectable background in jazz. She fired his. I've always had an interest in it. My Dad was a biologist and we would always go on these. I've been looking at maps since I was five, and and we'd go on walks in the new-look onto poverty maps and understanding vegetation maps so I guess I've been training for this for a long time without even knowing but done now. It's a little bit of my. Time and I love it the physical world and data to to solve problems in the s really exciting to work together and. We've been applying for some of these tools and really really interesting ways, and I'd love for brethren. Talk with it. This is a blog. A very big piece we're working on. That's coming out on the next, Tuesday! And it's A. It's a real world application vary timely of these told rags, these tools, a really cool powerful but the story of Man on the Moon is man on the moon, not N-, not necessarily rocket as cool as.

The Tech Guy: Emails bouncing

"In Pleasanton. Thank you Kim. Hello Jim I Leo. How're you I'm great? How are you? I got something here? I wanted to find out what time it is in by Kava Belgian Congo. That is to smoke. That is a blast from data. That's something I had saved to my computer back when DOS was only at three letters exactly. Yeah I started doing this show in the early nineties with John C John was little. Add he get bored. So I I gave him some sound effects start collecting them and that was that big ended up being his favourite. I think our signature sound effect for the longtime couldn't figure out where it came from was from an old dennis. The menace episode. Dennis finds a shortwave radio. And that was that was what he heard on his short rate. I didn't know where it came from. Either but I used to manage a bunch of Sun workstations and servers and I learned how to transmit audio to the servers and these guys would be sitting there doing nothing. I'd play that for. You are funny man. It has a life of its own. Well it's so nice to talk to you that means you've been listening to me rattle on for well back. Then was new. Yeah practically thirty years Lee. Moly IT WAS. It was different. Wasn't it in those days? It was windows. Three one one windows for workgroups it was dos and then we had things like floppy disks. And you don't we didn't have. We really didn't have the Internet. That's what it was. That changed everything. It was where I worked. We had Cloud service in Sunday. You don't know where to go when there's a lot of fun anyway. I'm having trouble. I WANNA keep you here but My female. I manage A bunch of People retirees from where I used to work in around me around four hundred people now and then getting messages from US Jimmy L. Which is fine but now. I'm getting measured. Says there was a problem and delivering your message and Known as recipients server did not accept our request to connect now. I have a question for you on that. So there's two possibilities was it an actual email that you sent or your clients sent. I sent but it is one. You can see the email that you tried to send because one time that happens to a lot of people and you may have seen this also because spammers or notorious for using your email address never going to use their email address in the return. Sure so when they send out a million emails and your in your address is the return address. You'll get a certain number of bounce backs. That's that's just internet background noise. But but if it's an actual email that you tried sending have you actually sat down and tried resetting that email and watch it and see it come bouncing back and you're sure an extra actually? It'll it'll do that over a period of days because it will tell me trying. Yeah it'll keep trying and you're sure you have a proper email address right. It's an existing. Email address is is one particular host you're sending to well I'm sending to There's four of them that gives me trouble. One of them is earthlink link. The other one's mind spring was Netcom. And then there's another one people peach or something but it's no accident that all of those are really old. Isp's yard that's right. That's right there. Seems to be a commonality. All of that. And we retirees your all of your. Yeah all of your email addresses. G Mail is of course run by Google and his run very well by Google G. Mail adheres to all the modern standards. So I I don't know why mine Spring Mind Spring. Wow there's a blast from the past earthlink dot com. I don't know why they're refusing mail from G mail it. It probably means that those people aren't getting a lot of males since almost you know everybody uses g mail now and you know if the other way around I might understanding because g mail in order to reduce spam a good inbound emailer. We'll do a lot of things like reverse. Dns they'll do some authentication things like SPF and stuff and they may refuse mail from a server that doesn't identify properly. You know doesn't records or something like that. Yeah that sounds to me like earthlink. Netcom and mine. Spring are miskin figured in some strange. I've done this for years and all of a sudden on me. This started to happen. A May fifth for whatever reason it sounds to me like I would guess because again. Google is very modern inch. And it's probably that on May fifth. They flipped a switch for some new standard that mind spring net common and earthlink. Aren't currently adhering to GonNa have to do some research. I think he emailed. Who Do I email that? Earthlink man earthly. Yeah Yeah admitted it would probably do it. earthlink. Yeah it's something they're doing and you know what if it's happening to you? It's happening a lot so they'll likely fix it. I'M GONNA I'm a little research. Keep listening if you

A very Canadian solution to a problem well hopefully never face

"At the heart of today's topic is a problem. That Canada will hopefully never face when you just have to look around the world to see how devastating it can be when it does happen in a muddy field outside on an army of bulldozers is breaking ground racing to build up thousand bed hospital to treat victims of the corona virus the Congo. This French train is far from the usual bags and suitcases. This high speed service has been requisitioned for medical use the makeshift hospital and the javits center now is taking patients and there is another field hospital going up this in central park. If covert nineteen spikes again and overwhelms our healthcare system. Canadian officials will have to act quickly. They will need to create a task force and develop a plan to handle the overflow. Who will put that plan together? How fast can they do it? Where will the building go? Where will the beds go where we'll the nurses dress? How does a field hospital come together while sitting on some of their desks will be a very Canadian document to help them? Figure that out because it turns out that almost every place in Canada from our biggest cities to our smallest towns as a facility that is ready and waiting to be turned into a makeshift hospital. I mean you can probably guess what that is. But I don't want to spoil the surprise. The story of how this plan came together and exactly what would need to be done to execute while. That's also very Canadian. And so right. After Claire gives us an update on cove nineteen in Canada. Today I am pleased to present a very good news story. Both because of the fact that this document exists and because so far at least it looks like it won't be needed so clear. How are we doing? Canada marked a grim milestone on Monday. Topping five thousand deaths from Kovic nineteen and most of those more than three thousand are in Quebec despite this schools in Quebec outside of the Montreal area have reopened with restrictions in place schools in Montreal are set to reopen may twenty fifth in British Columbia Phase. Two of the reopening plan will start next week if the cove nineteen situation. There remains as steady as it's been so phase two means. Some businesses will be allowed to reopen with some restrictions in place and people will be allowed to gather in groups of up to six people after the Victoria Day long weekend. Bbc's provincial health officer. Dr Bonnie Henry cautioned everyone to be patient and calm in the coming weeks. Ontario saw another day of decline in cases of covert nineteen on Monday and the province's chief medical officer of health. Dr David Williams said the province is anticipating whether or not it can begin the next phase of recovery. Despite this terrier state of emergency is expected to be extended today until June second as of Monday evening sixty nine thousand nine hundred and eighty-one cases of covert nineteen in Canada with five thousand one hundred deaths. I'm Jordan he's Rawlings. Is the big story. Kennedy Smith is the managing principal of an engineering firm called integral group and He started down a long process that led to an interesting Potentially Very Canadian solution to a problem. Kenny hi I'm doing all right thanks My first question for you is just. How did the group that began? This process come together. And what was its original intention in a weekend to work from home or a couple of weeks and I was. I was sat home one night and I just start thinking by you know. How can we respond as a design construction operations community to help what's going on in the world and and more locally within our community My wife is a is a narcis sick kids. So I also start getting a bit of fear around if if additional facilities or temperatures were needed in if they're if they're put up too quickly or a certain way it may actually create another area of risk for people working within them. So I just started thinking about you know. How can we respond for the right reasons as a community? And I reached I. I'd just can reach site to some some people in Lincoln and made an open call just to whoever was interested. Whoever was willing to put forward their own personal time adds to help right across our industry. So everything from architecture engineering fabrication construction operation. Everything just kind of put it out there. And the response was fantastic. And a lot of people responded. I think I think people were kind of looking for an opportunity to help in any way they could. And and this gave them this this platform to do it So a lot of people responded and we just kind of kicked it off and started from there really moving beyond that we we started speaking to some people on the on the user side trying to understand the actual needs of healthcare professionals the hospitals. And I'm the timelines 'cause you know we're we're used to designing and constructing sewer lengthy timeline. So you know right off the right out of the gate. They told us You know these things if their needs Would NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED WITHIN. Can of two three weeks so a create this very very fast rapids requirement. We realized that we essentially had a week to try and pull something together with team. Yeah so then. We kicked off and started going. What was the first step? I guess In that process. And what were you considering as you sort of looked around at what might be available? It was it was quite crazy. I mean I think usually you've got some more time to really reflect and gather ideas across in many different groups in this scenario you've got a lot of people That have amazing ideas but you also have to make decisions very quickly to to try and move things forward so the first step was just kinda committing to a building type and kind of moving forward with a design and construction at a church for that building type. How many different kinds of buildings did you look at? And what was the that you had? So I think initially we. We started thinking on a large scale when you saw what was happening across the rest of the world in the UK in the United States where there were retrofit saying no major convention centers arenas airports we we. I started thinking about that and then after speaking to the healthcare user groups of Front we realized that maybe a more scalable solution would be better based on the on the needs as they came in so something that wasn't necessarily a too large scale Something that was more medium scale that we could actually implement some better measures to control the The clinical functions of space and air movement. Things like that so we first started considering large and then we started thinking what is a good can building type. On that museum scale that could be easily replicated first of all locally but an essentially anywhere in Canada we thought about hotels. There is a really good opportunity with hotels for People who couldn't self isolate People who couldn't get into amp shelters Could you know accommodate the needy and The people that needs to be helped on they could safely self isolate but in terms of a clinical function. It's Kinda hard to and I'm with the constant Clinton and maintaining the conditions in that space. So yeah we landed very quickly on arenas and then very quickly on ice arenas and you know is very Canadian response They are located all over the commune insane over Canada and the buildings themselves. Although there's there's there's variations of them the main components of these buildings don't really differ that much so you have the kind of ice arena where the WASHROOMS are entranceways Asi. Tin Area Zamboni entrances. You know these. These are all things that remain pretty consistent across any facility so if we could create a designer or sponsor runs one it could easily be replicated across any so. I think that's that's how we can have whittled a dining came to that as that building site so I think everybody listening can kind of picture either a professional hockey arena or their own local arena with the same kind of characteristics. When you're starting with that what do you then have to do? In order to convert it into something that can really help patients and also maintain safety like what does that actually look like on the ground. If you were to put this into action I mean I mean the first thing you've got to consider as what are the clinical functions you know what's it going to be used for? What do the healthcare professionals need in that space? And then can hide you separate out the building to maintain separation between kind of clean and clean supplies or supplies. 'em Hygiene tain separation between people and processing people can come in and and and leaving so we very quickly came Syria. A consensus with the team with some amazing healthcare plan ours. About how do we can chop up the space and very kind of basic terms to separate and maintain these functions so it was really using that main ice arena space to to have patients fitted and embeds comfortably? That could be checked on and could be tended to And then some of the exterior spaces could be fitted for the healthcare professionals storage of supplies and and then maintain some of the base building function so still maintaining the washroom areas and the change rooms for healthcare professionals and patients alike and then in the exterior spaces at most of these locations or surrounded by parking There's there's usually space around them so we had opportunities to also include four temporary trailers or additional spaces to store equipment and to put in additional mechanical equipment to maybe have some some temporary areas for doctors nurses to actually get some downtime and to hang out so You know we could kind of add to it like Lego blocks and as as where needed with I really doing too much to the existing infrastructure. Yeah I've taken a look just at one of the little plans you kind of sketched out yet. Looks Amazingly Just like a hockey arena only It's been transformed. Did you game out? How long that would take you and how much it would cost. And how quickly you can set it up. Because I know we've heard things from around the world of you know how quickly China has thrown up field hospitals or quickly. New York has transferred stuff. So what's the timeline in the cost there so I mean the cost is something

You'll rested rollercoaster tycoon talk now billy yes that's me he played the version which the only version really available right yeah. I've looked to see if there's like actual video game versions of non. PC and I haven't found any we talked about this yesterday today. I wasn't honestly quite sure which game you're talking about and then it. Kinda just hit me. Yesterday I saw tweet about it with a picture and I was like Oh my God I do remember that game so I feel look. I can help more with this conversation. Great the more the Merrier I made the sickest rollercoasters and would go underground and I would get the shovel all I know in make things high and I would make things low but also I was an evil evil bastard so when my park was full then I'd start doing construction and I would lift like certain parts of the ground round like just like one person who would be stuck like walking in a like a three by five square for the rest Sivy Tornado words and then sometimes I would start construction on a roller coaster or I would open a roller coaster. That didn't have a loop clothes and people wouldn't meet. They're fiery doom. Don't act like you didn't do it billy. Everybody's done it. Put It on the poll. Have you killed innocent. People playing rollercoaster tycoon billy looked me my eye and tell me that you didn't murder people for fun in that game no well look. You're looking at me and the I I mean what's the difference in grand theft auto. I was you know I was a terrible person does feel it does feel different because rollercoaster tycoon supposed to be innocent. These people have entrusted me people auto or innocent to when you're just like cruising the streets not doing all that time. Let me see what I can on top of a high building and just like picking people off. Oh Oh my God don't roller coaster tycoon. We're GONNA talk to you. GTE another day but Roy Roller coaster tycoon Sim city routes uh-huh Your Sim City Guy in just downloaded the Sims on xbox one yeah just yesterday yeah no not because Ed won't give US Credit No. I actually did that a couple of months back because I had not played the Sims beforehand. WanNa try it out ever yeah ever wait. You just started playing the sims now like in two thousand and nineteen yeah it was it was the new version of the Sims the Sims four whatever I couldn't get into the Assim. I thought I'd like living someone else's life but I realized mine was better so I just didn't want to know like real life was better and I was just like checking on a giga pet. Essentially I'm like why don't you found the man I like. Those in. That game takes a lot of dedication. Your lifetime essentially have to live someone else's life in real time and it's just just like Oh God. Can I just kill innocent people with my roller coasters already my death traps so I made one entire park that was just designed to be a death factory factory like you were talking about like the yeah but this trumpet death this takes like the Lemme change the speed on rides to a different level when and you just made a part to injure innocent people. Everybody's done it yeah. I don't know that everybody's dead billy that billy you dedicate a park into the no but you dedicate a ride. You didn't want to see what would happen if the problem was that when you did that then you're park ratings would go down and it will affect attendance and stuff so it's not like a long term success plan yeah but you could always create a new user profile so I had one user profile that was just built up to have enough money to make a park of do I would have a roller coaster that was at the edge of a pond and people would just be catapulted into the sea. Yeah what we're talking about the drop of fear I would have a drop that would shoot them up at a high rate of speed. I would go up so high the sweet spot if off the thing there was a sweet spot though that it could fly off a land back at play which was that was needed to get the exact speed right yeah but I wanted to push it to the limit yeah and so you you know they would shoot up in outer space and then I would just start taking away as like transient man. What a fiery death. Jeez it was great poor. Little digital people were just going to have fun with digital family. I'M GONNA make a request from corporate and then we just have like one. Pc from Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and we just put in rollercoaster tycoon deluxe and anytime someone wants to just go and loved to see that email. I think it's could do a lot for the Camaraderie in the studio thought of a potential grid of death punishment yesterday asking for I finally put together fifty all right. What did you think the Bristol Yeah. You didn't think of that. I thought of thought of it based off something I was doing doing. It was a team effort. Someone go to Bristle now you just because in Bristol we found out Alison was recently in Bristol. She said that she said that sitting. Sitting is the new smoking as the thought process so a lot of people spend most of the day standing standing desks. They don't sit you have to stand so then we yeah we came up with the punishment burst or you just have to stand yeah billions of it. Actually I think that's cool. I was standing yesterday. A lot hopes that Dan would come to me and say why are you standing and I was GonNa say sitting is the any smoking yeah so.

"What I blame is. If anyone around the team says Oh this is the type of guy we really need around here and then Rojo says I love these young players and I can't wait to help usher them into when new winning era in Marlins baseball that's just completely disingenuous all right very informative our continues with this most recent episode of the David Samson Show David. We'll talk to you next week. Thank you so much guys ladies and gentlemen. This is Congo number two. I'm in on Congo number two and I'm going to campaign. The Jordan. Peele makes Congo number two. Let's get some calls because we've talked about a lot on what that means. You'RE GONNA campaign. I'm just going to send a tweet okay. Du Congo number two backed up to him yeah. Hey at Jordan Peele to Congo number number two before we get to the calls. Did you see what Amari Cooper said about the dolphins no. What did he say that. They're not that bad and I'm just like stop mocking mocking us all right. Mary Cour Amari Cooper according to John Mocatta the Athletic Mark Cooper said when I was on a team that probably got be like that. I didn't feel like we sucked sucked. I felt like we had a good team. That's how I feel about the dolphins. I don't feel they suck. The report says so you're not looking your chops says I'm not. They have a pro bowl corner over there. Yeah you had to grow up at Dolphins Fan. Why is he being nice. He's from down here and he's not gonNA give them any bulletin board material and he is going up against the one good player the Miami let me dolphins have so Amari Cooper nice quote you that this team would be motivated by bulletin board material and not losing by forty five points every week and being completely defeated the entire season. It's an excellent point. I'm just saying Amari. Cooper doesn't want to be the guy to actually say something and as I take. It's last week. We never got due to a last week. Chris's trap games of the week. It's trap Thursday but I already gave out this week's trap game like and I looked at the schedule tried to find other ones. They only trap game. This week is the cowboys against the Dolphin. No first half it was plus eleven and a half earlier in the week hopefully locked it in because I don't know what it is. Now I assume after this tip malign will oh strength because of all the action works. If everyone bets the guys in any survivor pools. Yes yeah you know. I'm confused by your trap game of the week because you have it being the track of the week but the cowboys still winning I mean the spread is so huge s yes. You're talking about insurance. I remember what we said the weeks ago a real trap game is the first half is where you crush a trap game. They get they get in the half and the coaches start throwing clipboards and they motivate them like. I don't care about the next Sunday night. You're turning usually with a Mario Pass. What would you say you used to be a high school baseball coach. What would you do to motivate your player. The thing about baseball is you don't can't don't have a halftime what a baseball team has though this doesn't happen in the major leagues in High School and college the way you really motivated team in game is when they're coming in from the field. Let's say they had a bad. Any of the other teams got five renting. It's five nothing instead of just having them. Come into the dugout like normal. You say no everyone out here. Let's go go right here and you have a little team. Huddle right outside the dugout in between half innings and you just you know sometimes a leader of the team gives the speech sometimes the coach. You have to get in there and give the speech. I've have learned the speeches. Don't mean a lot because it doesn't like you know you give a really big raspy and then your team strikes out all three batters so you're still alive in your survivor pulled. Yes you do the thing where you buy multiple entries or you. Just go with one done that in the past this year. It just went one. I almost lost week one with Seattle. They won by one point against the bengals. That's what I want to talk to you. So I went shock last week. I went patriots. It's been a pretty chalk season so I have two entries in survivor poll. I'm so alive with both entries week like one. I did the dumb thing and I took the same team with both entries which is not something that you want to do but I was like I will straight up die. Zach Taylor and Andy Dalton marched into the twelve man and win week. One Seattle was sweating at won that game by one point so I'm still alive and then week two last week. I took Kansas City with one which is a road team so little tricky Kansas City and then Baltimore against Arizona with the other. You didn't go patriots. I think Patriots I'm saving the Patriots for when they have a tougher game. I would have thought that I would have been the week to go both but I am going Dallas with one so I'm fading the dolphins with one and and I'm in the other one. I'm going Minnesota over Oakland Aiding Oakland once again so who you going with this week. I'm also I tend to go with the theory of of just take the biggest favorites hope it works out and deal with it at the end so I I'm Kinda leaning cowboys. I haven't really looked at the schedule too hard. Who are the biggest sprays cowboys and the Patriots Hatred so the biggest bread so basically I'm asking myself. How many times am I am. I going to be so certain the cowboys are GONNA win a game and if you look at but if you have to look at the Patriots schedule like not not every game that they play is going to be obvious win for that. I WANNA use Patriots against the jets when they're on the road see I like using them occasionally like a really good team like if I'm GonNa go with the road because occasionally I'm GonNa have to win a road game in this process. I'M GONNA go down with Patrick Mahomes. Tom Brady right like late in the season. You never know what the Patriots I feel like the Patriots one of those teams. I felt like with the motivation of the dolphins being the last time like that's why I took the Patriots well. You don't know how many weeks you have Antonio Brown with the Patriots so different team that you pick him. Let's go out to the phones and this. This guy became star on the local hour caller seen last week. We go to big Phil Big Bill. You're on there. What do guys how you live in. Were doing great the Big Phil now that you're in our lives oh good to hear good to hear I I WANNA. Give a shout out to you guys for honestly making my mornings that much better so shout out to you does couple of things. I want to talk about today. we got so. Is there a certain song that you guys have that you've got a couple of drinks wingspan you. You're still in a little bit. You're feeling yourself that you only saying during that occasion you know I I wasn't listening because I I was talking into the other guys. I'm like you know what I made a mistake. I thought big Phil with somebody else. I thought you were from North Carolina and then billy correct me. That's Tubby so big. Phil's now I gave you such a great interest the good name though brought the appropriate energy but I missed tubby. You're not tubby. I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm not going to be don't be sorry. It's not your fault all right. Can you say again because we weren't listening. Yeah no for sure so Is there a certain song that you guys sing when you get a couple of drinks in you when you're in a little loop see little little Pitsea Z. that you'll only saying when you're feeling that way versus opposed to just any other time of course all the songs what Song No scrubs I'll get down with some no scrubs and they get a couple of drinks. I'll go on that song all day all them. I'm probably more inclined to sing. The guilty pleasures like the early two thousands late nineties. These boy band backstreet boys little elephants low ninety eight degrees. I mean hell okay. We'll go five like there's there's other boy bands out there. I know we only devote our time time to the big too but there were plenty of offshoots from that so I'm kind of an expert at the children and the TRL era Roy. What's your song when you gotta learn and get a little tipsy because your because I kind of I was thinking to myself. I I'll bust out some lyrics even when I'm not really drunk so I was looking at role. Roy seems like a guy who needs a little liquid. Kerr's starts singing Roy. What's your song I don't really have I didn't have liquid courage when I was doing karaoke with a mean so is that you didn't have any union drink tonight. No Oh you're fasting. That was a fascinating though you just want to have a drink no you you didn't want to have a drink was supposed to be you like your Scotch Big Phil. L. Says it's no scrubs. You got anything else for as big Phil Yeah I want to know what you guys have. Pet peeves are real big pet peeve of mine when people so you you know how people say like. I don't know intact messages and they'll spell it out. I D K. I really hate when people actually say that in person or like say. Id k. a or something like that do you guys got a pet peeve. That just really irritates you guys. The first thing comes to my mind is just driving I. I'm very you know everyone says I'm very happy and very lighthearted but for some reason when I get in a car and I see someone doing something stupid. I just gets format and I ran my steering wheel so hard. It's usually when someone doesn't maker you're right at a red light and it's like you honk them and then they all of a sudden remember. Oh yeah it can make a right here. It's like what were you doing. Why don't you remember that you could make that right that that that would be my number. One got mad yesterday because I was making a left hand. Turn you know when the light turns yellow and red two cars moment to a two car rule so sometimes sometimes one car stays at the very back line and not the median of completely making it mathematically impossible to cars to go so but this person yesterday went up to the median allowing me to Tuck in behind them for the two car ruled the happen so I call it makes a left some dude no some lady on on going the opposite direction who was hugging the curb about to make a right decides..

"I prefer that explanation because the other one that billy had I think you're kind of pointing the finger at yourself because you're the one that put the expectations on a million. No no I oh I think I think that he thought that yeah he was a prospect and I think he really wanted to be here and lead the team and it's not too late. I mean and I mean why Lewis Brinson wanted to be here. I know you think because he's from here and loves local lows the MARLINS because the marlins had a path for him to start getting major league service earlier than the brewers did yeah but David it could be a little bit of both I mean come on like he could also wanted to play in his hometown now one last the question before we let you go obviously it's happened in the NBA for a couple of years now and now player empower minute sort of making its way into the NFL with what Antonio Brown did with with Jalen Ramsey demanding trade with what Minkah Fitzpatrick just pulled down here Miami. I know how you guys have handled it in the past but times have changed say superstar superstar player or just even like a middling player comes up to you and demands at trade. How would you handle it as Marlins team. President David Samson matchy about to talk about bad on another venue so I will only say this and I'll give it to you straight. It's not called player empowerment. It's called owner pushiness. Those are two very different. Things may write. US probably shouldn't put it that way. The players do not have a right at all to demand trade trade and then get traded absolutely no right under any collective bargaining agreement was owners are doing. They're scared to have players on the team who could be poisonous in the clubhouse because they're happy to be here as bad as outrageous. Christian Yelich did it and now he's brewer all he said was hey derek. I really don't want the air with no leverage. So how would you have handled that you would have just told them you know hit the Road Jack now I would say on the Road Jack now now. You're in the lineup tonight batting third later. How often did that happen while you were down here like with players like I want to I don't really can't name any players who demanded a trade. We were always believe it or not. We were trying to win when we traded the guys and five I've and brought in the young ones six. They were happy even in two thousand twelve when we traded them brought in new players they were happy when you sort of hold the carrot over a player's head hey listen. We're trying here. We haven't done a lot of winning but we're hoping to get better. It's like Miguel row house right. Now is rumored to sign a two your extension and what everyone is saying is he. He's such a great leader. He wants to be here when the rebuild is over. He's all excited. It is the biggest crock. I've I have ever heard and we go row houses. A great guy what it really means is he's never gotten a long term offer before and he has a chance to get security for his family and guaranteed..

"And you're saying hey listen total recall with arnold made one hundred million dollars if we bring in Colin Farrell and Redo it. We've got a chance to absolutely make money and then you it should be green lighted. We promise how do you Green Light Congo number two well. It's not Congo number two. It's a reimagining of the original Congo Congo number precale so they're just going to say no because no Congo has like a terrible legacy. No one's going to want to see it. It's box office poison like if I try to pitch like hey we're. GonNa do speed racer but this time we're going to do it right. Everyone's GonNa Forget about the two thousand eighteen version. They already have were rebooting the entire. The idea they're going to laugh at me because speed racer was just box office poison. The reason they laugh at you is that you've had box office success before and you're a Newbie. If if you were in there and you said about speed racer and your Steven Spielberg then maybe they would be light it so Jordan. Peele can get a speed racer movie done. You would think no. I would not want does not eight Jordan Peele. Gordon peeled can call his shot right now. He can do anything he wants. I guarantee you if he goes to a movie studio and says the next thing I want to do is speed racer or Congo number two they're doing. He's got a better chance of doing away Mama number five so I don't agree with you. He's had two great movies. Get Not but what else what is what's his resume. He doesn't even have a Mount Rushmore Josh more yet. That's a good point but he's got the twilight zone. I mean get out was one of those projects that everyone said that he could call his shot and you're telling me he can't can't get Congo number two done. No economic will agree to disagree LE. Let's have a day well. This isn't postseason David. I'm looking at a headline right here of last night. We're seal stares down. Walk off single in the tent. Who's The cockiest athlete you guys ever had with the Marlins like a guy that even guys on the team were like dude. You'RE GONNA get us in trouble with the way you act jose. Fernandez guys guys have anything for him. There you big at you. Were that's interesting but like so guys on the Marlins. Were even a little dude. You're going to like you know. They're going to be retaliations nations for how you're acting. I would have thought I wasn't going to thank him. That's interesting now. When you say cocky I say self-assured and I say the cocky he comes when you're being self insured during an inappropriate moment. That's what cocky is. He was mostly self assured with occasional moments of cocky when they're cocky players like let's say. Aj Burnett he was just a guy who would there would be retaliation because they're just the eye rolling early in his career. Before he matured award he was the type of player who people would just look at it not actually take seriously at all but when you've got the talent of Jose it was a different story when when his selfish ordinance became cockiness people would sit sit down and say hey you know someone's GonNa get hit the Noggin here David. I'm obviously you've I've seen the trump ski stuff. That's going on in Boston where the grandson of cars Stransky is now in the major leagues and he made the major leagues you see the Blue Jays have a bunch of sons of former you know. MLB players. I'm wondering how many when you were running the marlins how many draft picks you guys did just kind of as favors to people like you're in the thirtieth round or something you know what let's take cody. Ross's nephew because whatever it's the thirtieth round yeah we actually draft Griffin Conan back when he was coming out of high school in the I don't know twenty eighth whatever round it was just as a thank you to Jeffco nine and and so- Griffin we a new Griffin was going to college at Duke so for us we were happy to use the tech because there's no limit on picks every I'd say every few years the owner would call all in say. Hey draft this kid. You know the son of a friend of mine or the brother of a friend a cousin of a friend and it's no problem it doesn't cost anything you don't give a signing ninety bonus to the to the player to the player to the person who gets drafted and the person just gets a certificate. It says you were drafted congratulations by the Miami Ninety marlins and then they go onto technical school plummer school or law school so it happens way more than you think wait. What do you mean. There's no limit on picks you like so so there's no penalty. Obviously you draft him. You know he's going to college but you draft them. Just you know to be nice suggest CONAN but then you don't get some sort of replacement pick for that too you no but there's so many rounds. It's not like the NFL NBA where there's limited rounds. The draft basically ends when teams keep passing. It's almost like in a AH poker seven twenty seven when everyone passes on a car that's sort of the end of the game and that's a little technical for Thursday morning in the draft. It's the same sort of thing I think the limit maybe thirty eight thirty nine or forty round but it generally stops when thirty teams say okay. We've had enough no more favors I for. What is the benefit for you guys to do that favor. Why wouldn't you just take a chance on some guy that you scouted and he's still there so he's probably never going to be anything. But why wouldn't you just go for a guy that potentially could do something for you as opposed to just doing a favor because there's not necessarily room at your minor league level. I mean you're not GonNa get when you draft forty players. You're not adding forty players into your minor league system that that month right the draft is in July or I can't even remember what month but you're not adding them into your system August September. That's not an issue. It's not like we pass on our to house to draft Griffin Conan when he was eight games. This is amazing. I had no idea that's the major league baseball draft. Wait hold on could the marlins then or any team. I guess technically like your by around thirty four and you're like I'm gonNA take Jeffco nine nine son and then everyone else seems okay. That's enough and he's like no. I'm GonNa Take Jeffrey Loria. His nephew and it's like okay well we can. I know I'm going to take David Samson son and one could just keep keep going over and over if they wanted to over and over and over. This is one good way to stop tanking. If one team just stays on the clock for several years there is still limits. The picks are actually done at that. Round of the draft picks her being done every three seconds it. It goes very quickly. There's no time in between the inbetween picks. Could you draft anybody or do they have to specifically declare for the Major League Baseball draft because I'm guessing round around four hundred and fifty. How great would it be if you just went up there and said we draft Lebron James. Yes there are there. Are there are ways that you have to register a a person so they get a number and the way the draft works as you say into a conference call we draft player number four or five to six nine six nine nice and then how does that work. How does this work. What's the like. Do you have to pay a fee to be eligible for the MLB draft like what's to stop me okay so what's to stop me from making myself eligible next year for draft. I WANNA get drafted well. You're eligible. It's the it's the teams it's the MLB. There's there's a pool of players. Griffin was not a pool boy not that there's anything wrong with pool boys. He was a player who was signed to go to do as a the top hitter in high school. We just knew from nine or that. He was not going to skip college period unless he was the first or second round pick which he was not going to be out of high school so it's not as though that that we were taking someone like you or me who couldn't hit a sixty mile an hour fastball down the middle that was put on a team. Could I potentially be drafted if I were to convince a team could I be drafted in the MLB draft no why not because you're old no SOS Tim Tebow practical the reasons. I'm not talking about practical reason I'm talking about like in terms of the rules could be drafted with the rules that are set up wow. I think you're a younger than Tim. tebow are younger than Tim. Tebow mom year older. Look what's going to be the team the draft me. I don't know you need to start campaigning for this right now because team. I just do this for you know public relations remember like the huge impact he made with Lewis Brinson all star campaign. How did that go the Lewis Brinson eligible wolfer comeback player of the year this year. He didn't hold up his end of the bargain this year. I mean how it went was during our campaign was his hottest stretch in two seasons. As soon as we started our the campaign he actually went on a little heater. That is true. I I am silent because you can't see me. If we were video podcast. You'd see my eyes rolling to the back of my head honestly though David he has I think his best two or three months stretch was literally during our campaign. That's not an exaggeration. Everyone was saying quit making fun of the kid right ising him. We boosted his confidence in all honesty. I feel bad for how all of that played out just because I th I Lewis Brinson was the centerpiece in the yellow trade that was coming back and he was someone that I think that this community could have gone behind and rooted for because he wanted to be here. He's from down here like if that would have worked out differently. I think that would have been a really good story. Unfortunately it just didn't happen and I think the part of it could. It'd be just the pressure that was put on him or that. He was putting on himself just to live up to this expectations and bring the marlins back to something when it just wasn't possible with what they had there or maybe they scouted him wrong. He actually was never as good as the brewers made him out to be because a really good team promotes players in a way that makes them seem that their way a better than they are..

"Back to the local hour. Although it's a podcast. I shouldn't say welcome back to it. I don't think he went anywhere if anything he might have just hit like podcast. Ford thirty on your on your podcast and then you went too far and then he went back fifteen. That's the worst when you're skipping ahead in a podcast and it's like Oh. I went too far then you go back. Can you where you were. It's like how do I find the middle ground. You can't do it. You're often hear you might have heard this part three times in trying to get it perfect either way. David Samson joins us back from Spain and Disneyworld Peres simultaneously. I duNNo. I was confused by that last week. David welcome aboard how you doing today doing great. Let's get your review you out of the way because we're approaching baseball playoffs questions. We're approaching baseball playoffs. We got all sorts of baseball questions and I'll check out so so tell me what you're reviewing to well. I'm going to be quick because an article came out two days ago that absolutely made me crazy that they're thinking about doing a remake of the princess bride and that is truly inconceivable to me that they would mess with perfection their lack of creativity in Hollywood right now and original idea is hard to come by so they just do all these reboots and starting with these new streaming services that are just gonNa reboot all the old good series. How about one time having some writer later. All of them are out of work in WANNA. Write good things in many of whom do why not take the time to read a good script and actually give the money to produce it because I I don't care what stars they wanna be. In the new princess bride it can't be redone and listeners of lower who have not to call it lower by the way yeah it's a combination of local on our lower love it for those people listening right now to lower if not seen the princess bride pause not thirty seconds pause for the one hour and thirty six minutes right now and go watch the movie that was the beginning of Robin Wright has in Sean Penn's wife ex wife but this was maybe the most beautiful princess ever to appear on screen. The humor applauded Sean and his one liners and the beauty that Andre the giant can act and act very well by the way It's it's one of my favorite movies of all time and I got incense yesterday whenever I read that article because I I realized that when you mess with perfection you don't get cloning. You get imperfect. Nobody could ever do what Andre the giant did with like. Who would it be hypothetically early. I Kill O.`Neil Offset. That's a pretty good one. I saw someone. I wish I could credit them. I saw tweet that made me think why are we just remaking the good movies. If we're GONNA remake or reboot something why it should just be bad movies because classics asks could stand on their own like why can't someone remake Congo or attack of the killer tomatoes right. Why can't we just redo the bad ones and make I'm good..

"Le Batard Woodstock Gotcha podcast is brought to you by the capital one's ever card or four percent cashback on dining and entertainment Ju- percent grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases now when you go out you can't Jim what's in your wallet terms apply. I just gotTa say I would never go in a hot air balloon. I was just looking up at good morning. America and they were interviewing a couple that survived the hot air balloon crash and at some point you just got a hold up both hands and say risk versus reward are going up and down and I just feel like the risks. Wchs are way worse than any reward could ever be what are the risks and what are the rewards. The risks would be dying and I feel like a diet anytime slightly higher. When I'm you know floating on in a balloon that could not see. I think we call it a hot air balloon. It's not like it's not easy to pop you think balloon and the like a little pin would pop it stronger than your average balloon is it. I acknowledged that but what are you guys feel alone on this. I mean I would not go on a hot air balloon either. I don't think but I I don't know how many people die on hot air balloons. I feel like more people die taking showers then on hot air balloon. Let's get into the the whole thing thing of more like everyone. Take showers exactly as very percentage. Why shower probably killed less people in hot air balloons but I would think body count showers have a lot more more than hot air balloons. I have some numbers for you guys from the time span of two thousand to two thousand eleven in the United States during this sort of twelve year period they were seventy eight a hot air balloon tours that had crashed those accidents involved about five hundred eighteen occupants. Those were ninety one serious injuries injuries and fatalities so in like roughly ten years so it's like seventy or seventy and eighty year crashes at the it's not that much which but I'm still terrified of it. I wonder how many hot air balloons they're like rides. There are annually for saying that a lot of people will to God's crash hot air balloon. He crashed into a tree. I still don't know if he's telling the truth or if he's just telling us an episode of Full House that that has to be alive combining things. There's a hot air balloon at downtown Disney or Disney springs average safe. That's tethered. It doesn't go up that high. It looks pretty high compared to some of these other who no you're not like two thousand feet in the air and it's tethered no matter what how does that work in two thousand feet in the air because I would imagine the is pretty thin up there right like do you get up. There and you're like debris. This is obviously coming from someone that lives in Florida. That's flat lake op- like people live in downtown areas wherever broncos playing stadium. That's yeah hi yeah I I would. I don't think I'd do well. I don't think I WANNA go to Denver because of that old steelers player that couldn't travel to Denver because Clark so Ryan Clark Ryan Clark is the player with sickle cell from ESPN ESPN's Ryan Clark was couldn't play in Denver Yep Really Yep and I. I'm not speaking out of turn. I believe Dominic Foxworth found out after the fact that he might have been playing with sickle cell. He told us about that yeah. It was a story that might have got cut from his nominee oriented year revelation elation yeah he actually played for the broncos with sickle cell. I'd rather not go the Denver then go to Denver and find out. I shouldn't be in Denver Right. I guess it's kind of like a hot air balloons white people can't get sickle cell really yeah. It's just it's a genetic disorder that only affects African Americans I could have potential issues with heights and it affecting my body Okay I. I've been bothered lately. There's this they're dolphins. Twitter is really up in arms anytime someone like Mike Greenberg or even Dominic Foxworth who had pretty good town yesterday on on get up. Do we have that sound Can we play it. you played it on the national show yesterday. It was pretty good. I WANNA play one more time here on the local hour because he makes a good point and then I wanna counterpoint that with something that I've seen from from dolphins twitter. That's been bothering me. Here's Dominic Foxworth. You haven't really heard this was courtesy of get up. It's unethical and morally reprehensible as far as I'm concerned because we understand how dangerous football is game putting guys out there in this type of dangerous the problem but you can put that aside I think as an employer you have an obligation to provide a safe safe working environment as you can also provide the people an opportunity to succeed these young men have committed their lives to get into the NFL and the expectation expectation is once you get to the NFL. The team will do the very best that they can do to make sure you succeed. They are not doing this. There and that's not fair because these guys are physically paying the price. The guys are putting bad film on tape because they're not trying to win and it's going to shorten their careers and you know who's GonNa benefit from the owner general managers and maybe the potential future coach. These gas going to benefit from it. They're going to be out of the League. Having their careers ruined by selfish team like the dolphins now the bad film on tape. I think teams break you down individually. Ah to hear from Dominique ex exactly how certainly if other parts of the team are weaker. It might have a direct effect on your position and you might not be putting up the best numbers so let's take that point and stick it to the side. Dolphins twitter's very upset because one of the things that I'm reading a lot is is nobody complained like this when the browns were tanking no now the media is all up in arms just because it's a dolphins as if there's this huge. Miami bias chemically are this up for are you. We knew the browns were tanking after they won one game in two seasons that was a result in hand to season's worth but going into of those seasons tanking was not the plan yes. They knew that they weren't GonNa win but Sashi Brown got fired after two seasons of one win if the expectation was to lose every game like it's being reported from reputable people in Rich Eisen. I was watching his show yesterday. Rich Eisen said that he had heard when the draft was in Dallas after to a came in as a sub that the dolphins had the rise onto a this is different. If SASHI Brown's goal was to lose every game he wouldn't have been fired. I texted did with Chris Mortensen and Chris Mortensen when I was making all these points about the browns tanking fans sure going into seasons thought man. We're trying to lose because we're making these trades and we don't don't have a good team but Jimmy has thought those seems. We're going to win six games. Jimmy has them wasn't in on zero wins. This by all accounts the the plan here is to lose every game to get yourself in the best. STRA- draft position and to trade players get even more draft picks yeah. The dolphins are going thing hard at this like other teams like like the browns have kind of done this in the past but nobody has never been this blatant and I and I get dolphin fans for kind of just being in in their bubble and thinking that the world looking at them but you know the browns yeah I agree. I think this is unprecedented right. Look the browns were obviously historically bad teams but if you go game by game they were in those games they didn't come out the season with can blasted by the Ravens and Patriots and Losing Games one zero to two ten aggregate this is they were what the browns in the past bid. What the kind of jets are this season trying to win but then they end up owing two and then they're like you know what this is offer. All seasons go off. The rails player checks out. They knew they weren't going in the season's going to compete for a super bowl but they didn't go this extra and Dolphin Dolphin fans. I think you're doing a bit of a revisionist history on what those browns tanking seasons were because it wasn't this overt you doing something that that we've flatly never seen before in the NFL. Don't get all hot and bothered especially when you're the same people that are all in on this tank okay. These are some of the consequences that go along with being sold over by it. You're just GONNA have to deal with that like this is tough because I've been pro tank and then I hear what Dominique says and he makes a Lotta sense like I get that you know these guys are more endanger football player even though they're already endanger even when they have a fully healthy talented team. These guys are in danger every week. It just enhances. Hanse is more when you have no talent and like the guy protecting you is someone who probably shouldn't be starting in the NFL so I get that but then the other side of that from from the fan doesn't the team have like the owner has a right to choose the direction of his team. Yes so that's that's the tough like that's the debate there those the like should should the owner always have to put the best product on the field for safer to enhance the safety of a player when the League gives it benefits you to go to Alaska Alaska. You get the first pick so I just don't. I see sides of this argument. Yeah it's a moral conundrum and we'll see how this plays out. I do think that the NFL's going to try to do something about this this week's mystery crate they're going to do well this week's misery crate. David Samson who's going to be joining us next myself and Chris Wittingham talk about promotion relegation Gatien and it's tied into tanking and we try to find a solution for what the NFL is facing with the Miami Dolphins and I think we've found some pretty practical ideas ways that the NFL could look at this example with the Miami Dolphins and maybe try to avoid it going forward coming up next so the David Samson show Stu gods here. This is supposed to be an ad for advance auto auto parts but they're not selling anything they are offering cassettes your car battery for free which is good because winters on the way and car batteries don't like winter.
