"Produce energy, which we don't have enough energy right now, because of all the claims change regulations on power plants in the California area. But apparently United Nations just issued a report warning that raw materials used in electric car batteries air highly concentrated in a small number of countries where environmental and labor Laws are weak and non existent. And so therefore all you virtue, signaling liberals driving on that freeway, saying I'm so much better than everyone around me because I'm saving the planet and everyone else's in gasoline powered cars and they're destroying it. Actually, you're basically even slave little Children whose fingers get chopped off and the environment and destroyed in other parts of the planet Because Of the production process that to use so little secret. Yeah, that's a dirty little secret about electric cars for all you know, you vanity energy people. You know, those batteries are made with pieces of raw materials that are mined in parts of the world that you would never ever go to. You would never take your Children and you would not be able to tolerate watching videos of how these these minerals are mine. Congo because you know the liberals love going on safari. Oh, I'm going to spend $25,000 from me, and I'm going to spend $25,000 for my domestic partner or whatever you're calling him. We're going to fly to the Congo. What are you going to do? We're going on safari. Well, while you're there, Why don't you check out where that little Tesler was made? Who do you mean? Well, I have an appointment for you to go to one of the various cobalt mines that they have in Congo, which provides two thirds by the way of the cobalt for The car's on the world market of all electric batteries in car. Exactly. This is not a small little you know a place This is the This is the you know the mother lode of what's necessary to have on the current conditions. Imagine if they're no more gas powered cars, how hard these kids would have to work. There. I want you to meet with the Children that yeah. Children. As as young as eight years old. I want you to see them scrambling around hand dug methods for mining cobalt in Africa, so that you Can feel morally superior. To everyone else that you're driving down the road. Ah, today on your in your electric vehicle, you could just feel morally superior to everyone else. Please check it. The thing about liberal policies, Lou is that they basically sit there and say Our policy will give you good employment and a clean environment and everyone will benefit When you actually dig deep. You find that their policy not only doesn't work, but it costs more. It destroys jobs and actually is either as bad for the environment or far worse for the environment. And when it comes to social Equity. No people are still getting screwed and the people the top of the pyramid continued to profit. Typically, it's the politicians Along with their labor union bosses. And, of course, a lot of the billionaires that invest Oh, yes, right, So they have investments in the Congo cobalt mines. Imagine that. But CPO limousine liberals they drive around in their fuel, fuel efficient vehicles, their hybrid vehicles and they're so proud of themselves. What do they say that the hybrid vehicles are the leading cause of smug? You know, they just smugly drive around thinking that they're doing so well, but they don't realize the dirty secrets behind what brings a lot of these products to market. But they're happy because they feel virtuous here in California, not realising that they've contributed nothing to the planet in the Bronx is another factory just on on an electric vehicle. Which vehicle produces more carbon emission, okay for for production. An electric vehicle or a conventional car. Well, the gasoline in a car only accounts for 17% of the car's lifetime carbon dioxide emissions so only 17% of emissions. Of carbon from a car from the gasoline. It's the production, the manufacturing that's very carbon intensive. For a traditional car that's gas powered. It's only £14,000 of carbon dioxide emission. But for an electric vehicle. It's not just double its more than doubled its more than £30,000 of carbon dioxide emission for an electric vehicle. Oh, slow. Clap, you smug liberal. Oh, look atyou. Nobody knows that You're a fraud because they don't have information like this. But this is the Congo. Leeza manufactured the thing the gas powered engine. Would that make them feel a little bit better is that is that is that what way Which you can get out of sight out of mind on the part of the Liberals. I I guess I mean again. They like blissful ignorance. They like to say, Well, I voted for Democrats. So I'm a good person and I voted to raise taxes on millionaires. I'm a good person. I can't look at your charitable giving. Oh, I don't give your charities I don't believe in it. I've paid my tax. Really? I see That's interesting again. Do as I say. Not as I do.

It's a significant public health risk given the cove in 19 pandemic if covert comes Keeps the immune system busy or overburdened. Then my first worry is that tuberculosis in those people could activate an estimated 25% of people worldwide are already infected with TB. So Dr Vala far says, we can't get complacent about the danger TB and covert have together. Dr Valle Afar says all it takes is for covert 19 to make that person cough or sneeze and there will be a much higher risk of tuberculosis transmission. Dan Noone kogo new researchers with UCSD sake over 19 has created a gap in how Americans want to vote, the report on mail in voting from political science researchers found before the pandemic, there was no difference in the rates at which Democratic and Republican voters cast their ballots by mail or in person. The national surveys done over the spring and summer found a greater preference for mail in ballots from Democrats than Republicans partially due to the pandemic, the lead author says. Despite those differences, most everyone supports greater accessibility. A majority of Republicans and Democrats are in favor of not only mail in ballots available to anyone who wants them, but also sending balance directly to every registered voter, regardless of how they intend to vote.

AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial, shares slip on rollout doubts

"No Work? No pay no food coronavirus lockdowns have forced many people all over the world to wonder where their next meal's will come from according to Matthew True. Scott Oxfam International's head of Humanitarian Policy About one hundred and twenty one million people have been pushed to the edge of starvation. This year not of course is across the main hotspots you would expect Yemen Democratic Republic of Congo of Gunston Venezuela, south. Sudan we're also seeing hunger coming up in otherwise middle income or developing countries. India South Africa Brazil CETERA. Look at a situation in the world where you have about sixty sixty, one percent working in the informal economy when that denied that daily income forced to stay at home they no longer get that income and that forces them into some of the negative coping strategies and that's what makes this crisis so unique. People. Couldn't travel to work which meant they couldn't make money and they couldn't buy food but this isn't just a short term problem. Is it Yeah and it has sort of long term impacts where, for instance, if you take people who are living day to day selling milk, if they can't sell milk for a few days, it gets point whether then have to do something to have food and income then have to sell their means of income. So selling the cow which had been providing them and then conquered back to generate income and same happens instead of urban areas where people who had been, for instance, taxi drivers after. So long of not being able to take fares and give taxi rights eventually then have to start selling off assets to cope and that's where we're really. Seeing potential long-term structural breakdown, and as you say, this is a problem that existed before the pandemic. So how do we tackle it this time around does it require new solutions? It does with sort of proposing three solutions. The I of course is that we need to increase humanitarian aid drastically the U. N. Global Humanitarian Appeal has called for about ten point, three billion dollars in humanitarian aid. But only about twenty, four percent of that is funded. So less than a quarter, the second thing that we can do is cancelled some of the debt that could free up up to a trillion dollars, and then of course, the final thing is. Exactly, as you say, we do need to change how system works. We need to build a more fair and more robust food system. We need to build a system that's ready to deal with the climate shocks that's able to produce sustainable food.

Interview with Rough Translation host Gregory Warner

"Hi and welcome to the PODCAST Brench Club podcast. My name is Adela and I'm the founder of PBC today. I'm so happy to be joined by Gregory Warner host of NPR's report translation a podcast about the things that we're talking about in the United States are being talked about in some other parts of the World Hi Gregory thank you so much for joining us today. So rough translation is a favourite among many podcast ranch club listeners, and we've actually included episode in a listening less. We did last year called looking for love but for those who aren't familiar with their show, can you just give us a little bit of an overview? Sure sure. We'll. Our tagline is. Stories from far of places that hit close to home. Our original tagline and season one folks have listened back that far was things we're talking about how they're being talked about in other places but both those ideas are. Sort of around the the idea of we're going to tell stories that. Take place in some other. Maybe, some other countries, some other culture that's but but it's GonNa feel close to home. It's GonNa. It's GonNa hit you in some way it's it's not that we're specifically telling non-american stories or it's them and us but just we're gonNA take you places but it's going to feel that it's GonNa hit you personally got it. Yeah. It feels familiar but it's a from like maybe a different perspective. Yeah. So I'm curious about your background and how the idea for the show came about. Sure. So well, let's see so. Terms of my radio background. So I went to Salt Salt Institute for Documentary. Studies that was my. First taste of radio I worked in some local worked at a local station called North country public radio. Up in very northern New York and then after that, I went to Afghanistan So which was not as much of a leap as you think because I went from one very rural area to another very rural area and the stories of actually quite similar in terms of the story of the economy as well as the story of. Loneliness and and and all that. So I spent I ended up spending about two years on and off in Afghanistan. Let's see that was from. Two thousand. Six to two thousand eight. And then I left for a number of reasons. But also because that period two dozen sixty, thousand eight was was you could do a lot of reporting then. That that you just couldn't that was a lot harder to do after two, thousand, eight kidnappings it started in a massive way and then I was based after that in in Rwanda, and also some in Kenya, an eastern Congo. So we spent some time in in Africa again as freelancer and then came back to the US started working for marketplace as a staff reporter kind of learned. Later the art of grabbing tape and making a same day story, which is when I ended up getting the job at NPR's the international correspondent in in Nairobi. Sort of it is a you have to use fast twitch muscles but. What's Nice about that job is that there was also a lot of potential for storytelling feature work. and so he was in in Nairobi actually actually in Ethiopia that I came up with the idea for this podcast country that you've lived in. And it. It came about I mean came up through a number. Probably the simplest story is that I had done a story for for radio lab on their on their episode call translation and it was it was an episode about an incident that I watched that I I was I was actually following the secretary of state then John Kerry he gave a speech and this Ethiopian reporter in the room stood up and asked the question. I remember that episode yeah and Yeah it was. It was like this very brief I mean honestly the whole incident really the question and the answer which was at the end of this conference which I mean in the story we talk about how this there were all vetted questions until this one guy got up because carry decided to be generous in this one moment anyway. So this guy asked this question but. It was it was such a mistranslation around this one word and because of this one word. Secretary Kerry seemingly. Totally. Misunderstood the question answered it. In this way that was very unsatisfying and the guy ended up taking a quite a great risk to to ask this question on Ethiopian state TV. For nothing but it was this opportunity to learn about this one word serious, which has such a different meaning in east Africa.

COVID-19 Vaccine Ethics: Who Gets It First and Other Issues

"US government's. Warp speed is ambitiously trying to create test and licensed vaccine for covid nineteen in less than a year compared to the five to ten years typically needed for a new vaccine. The program is borrowing strategies from a crash effort undertaken in the nineteen fifties against polio. Arthur caplan was seven years old when that paralytic disease which had been terrifying parents nationwide came to his town. Last. People. In America. Get. Polio in the Boston outbreak of nineteen, fifty seven, that's where I'm from. Saw Kids in our loans on kids die in the floor. It's one of the reasons I got interested in medical ethics. The Polio vaccine developed in the fifties it saved millions of lives and brought us tantalizingly close to eradicating the disease altogether. But in the haste to produce them researchers and manufacturers occasionally made mistakes and crossed ethical boundaries. Experimental vaccines were tested on intellectually disabled children, for example, as well as millions of people in the Belgian Congo and the Soviet Union who were not given the option for informed consent that today we consider indispensable. Medical ethics come a long way in the past sixty, five years. The World Health Organization has already set up a working group on ethics and Kobe Nineteen of which Kaplan is a member. They have started thinking through many of the tough questions ahead as companies race to test experimental vaccines, and we hope eventually ramp up manufacturing of those who succeed to billions of doses. Worldwide these questions include how can we make sure vaccine trials don't exploit people or enroll too few participants from black native Latino communities who are disproportionately sickened been killed by this disease who will get approved vaccines I and who will pay for them and what if anything should we do about vaccines being sold on the black market? The most immediate questions involve large-scale clinical trials those trials will take months to produce results. Can says, one reason is if I give you the experimental vaccine. Then, I have to wait for the. Virus in nature to infect me to see whether I'm going to do better than a group that didn't get vaccine usually have a placebo control group were you don't give them an active agent and you sort of monitor one against the other. If, you're waiting for natural infectivity with Kobe we have a problem because the Degree to which the becoming infect is very slow. So you'll notice that people are starting to recruit subjects for trials right now in hot spots, they may be looking at Brazil. They may be looking at Atlanta it could be looking at a region of the country that has. A A big outbreak. But at the same time, morally we have to try and tell people who sign up for vaccination studies they should not get themselves infected. So it's a sort of moral catch twenty two, you can't really. Encourage people to be reckless and get themselves. In fact, an the problem is you're probably not going to take sicker people because it makes it difficult to assess whether a vaccine is causing an adverse event or an underlying illnesses causing events. Most of the people who come into these big vaccine trials are healthy volunteer still they're younger. Is An effort underway. In the NIH sponsor trials to try and get more diversity ethnicity and race but a lack of transparency in who is being selected for the vaccine trials has raised concerns that historically underrepresented communities may once again be overlooked. Kaplan says that the preference for healthy volunteers is also one of the reasons that vaccine testers probably won't turn to one otherwise logical place to recruit participants prisons where corona virus has been running rampant, you can't use a vulnerable population because you worry that they can't consent. They're gonNA try and say I'll do it because they want to get out of jail or get parole the other main reason why Is prison populations usually have two or three underlying diseases. I know MTV everybody's at the gym looks such Arnold Schwarzenegger. But in fact, hepatitis HIV drug abuse is a bunch of reasons why they're not a best subjects for for any beginning studies

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

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.

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.

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.

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..

"congo" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

"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.
