LADS#82 - Cristiano Ronaldo Allegations and Week 7 Premier League Week Recap
Oh. No, no. No, no. Hey, I'm Kevin Pettit and Martin Frazier, and we are allowed Americans Cussing soccer better known as lad. Guys, if you knew it is there is no beer cracking because we are putting on our serious hats today. We are being covering a very serious topic. So we figured we'd stay sober, not have drop drop of alcohol during it and probably have some beer afterwards because it's going to be a lot to go through. But before we get into all the Renaldo talk Martin, how, how the hell are you? I need to know that before we get before it gets really, really dark. I'm reaching the point where I'm gonna need to send you a status check every single hour of every single day, especially when you're not in plays because life is horrible. It's just put it this way. My emotional life directly coincides with how sports teams are doing. And let me tell you what last week was a doozy, the whole United drama and then United losing against RV and then drawing against. Though of wolf last week and then losing humiliating to West Ham. Then after that, Penn State lost to fucking Ohio State in the last possible second, and thank you James Franklin for calling Rome play on fourth and seven with not-i'm European shit. And now United has drawn another game. So cath, I'm shit. How are you doing. You know, I'm okay. Arsenals. Okay. I mean, they're on the the ups. I mean, they're tied for fourth just on kgo differential behind Tottenham eagles are a little slow, but I don't know. Man just been stressing over this whole Rinaldo thing. And you know, we've been texting back and forth about it so much about how we're how we're gonna cover this, how we just wanna lay out the facts and report this in an unbiased and fairway. So we are we jumping into this or what do you think. Let's let's get over, get it over with so guys. Basically, you guys have come to expect us to be drunk rambling fools when this comes to the podcast. But as of, I think Monday a pretty horrifying allegation has been made and it's it's taken up a lot of canonized techs and interaction. So can you wanna give some background on what's going on. All right. On September twenty. Seventh twenty eighteen a civil action complaint was filed in the district court of Clark county Nevada. The plaintiff in this case is Catherine may orga who is suing Cristiano Renaldo and is claiming that she was raped by Cristiano Renaldo. This is all brought to the attention in the media by the German newspaper out of Hamburg Dir Spiegel who did a whole. I think it's like twenty page piece if I'm not wrong Martin. Yep, Yep. Which me Martin both read. I've read it reached out to crystal winter Bach, who is the one of the main writers on the story. They've been covering the story for since there was a leak by footy leaks, which will get into more later. He was very nice. He's actually the one who I have this election complete sitting in front of me what is being claimed, what is not being claimed. He's been really great terms of giving information he has. There's also been, I've reached out to the attorney, Leslie, Mark stove, oh, who is the plaintiffs of Representative attorney in this case? And she got back to me and she's give me. I think it's her counsel or person working under her. LaRussa drew biter. I can't pronounce her name, but she got back to me in or she hasn't gone back to me, but I'm waiting to get a statement from the attorneys in this case. But guys, the the reason we're bringing this up is, you know, we're usually stick to sports guys. You know, we're not trying to bring it by think mean Martin both agree. This is a major story that needs to be talked about. And the reason we feel comfortable talking about this is because both me and Marin have worked as paralegals for two years. We've worked in toxic tort litigation in the civil field of. Am I wrong? Is that a good way to describe it? I guess, yeah, we, well, I work Kevin still works in the whole civil sector of litigation and especially given that background and the current climate of everything that's going on. We just felt that we've really did need to cover this really didn't need to put on our series faces and talk about it because these allegations are horrific. And if true, absolutely absolutely terrible and, and disgusting. So let's just break down what all has been alleged to occur. The complaint that Kev was talking about that was followed on September twenty. Seventh basically says that in June of two thousand nine Christiane were an auto and MRs my orga were had nightclub called rain, and this can be validated because there are pictures of both of them at this nightclub dancing holding each other. And then. The plaintiff, alleges that she was invited up to Rinaldo penthouse. Where Rinaldo encouraged her to join him in the hot tub with a couple of other girls. And at that point, missing my orga decline saying that she did not have swimsuits over Nolato offered her some clothes to change into an told her to go into the bathroom. And basically at this point Kef and everyone who's listening, this is where it gets down, right? Nasty. The plaintiff, alleges that Rinaldo walked into the bathroom where she was changing completely naked and asked or told her to give him a Felicia. And miss my orga said, no, she refused to leave, and then we're not proceeded to. Raipur has she screamed no, no, and stalled and Renault continue to do so and saw demise the plaintiff. So right there, that's. I mean, that's just a horrifying allegation and if it is true, that's I mean, I would expect the sports nation and decent humans everywhere to step away from annulled. Oh book. Have you wanna continue on how this having. Yeah. So I just wanna make sure we make it clear that this is all alleged in that Chris shown is claiming that it was completely consensual. The plaintiff again, when we're referring to plaintive there's a difference between civil and criminal. So in civil law, you have a plaintiff who alleges that someone else has wrong them, and that is she is alleging MRs my orga as the plaintiff is alleging that Christian or not, oh, who is the defendant has wronged her. So I just wanna make that clear and she's asking for damages and damages equal money. So just I, I think he's playing that right pretty well. Yeah. Yeah, that all the points that kinda defines what everybody is in this case, what she's asking for. So again, when we say defendant, we are not implying guilt that is just the title. Again, there's where this is all very much ledge. We're gonna get more into the details being claimed in the complaint and again, Macy one-sided because Durst Speidel article got her side of the story or an auto has not come out and given. Exactly his side to spy go. He's refused to comment on a coming out and claiming. It's all been fake news. And which, again, I hate that he said, fake news because I think that's annoying. That's, that's I, I don't know anyway, moving on. Following the alleged rape Christiano, literally the room saying that he was sorry and that he is a gentleman that he he's usually a gentleman. The plaintiff, in the case, my order says she suffered severe emotional and bodily injuries, including Nutley to ino- contusions, pusher medic trestle order and major depression. Following this, she left the. Penthouse suite and went in confided with her friend toward the sexual assault. She then on June, thirteenth the same day as the sole of reported this to the Las Vegas metropolitan police department. She then went to the University Medical Center where she was giving a full sexual assault medical examination. Where evidence of any type of sodomy was documented and photographed. During this, she claims that a nurse said that she would face public retaliation, public humiliated by Kushner Nado. She then went to go a few weeks later after this give report with the Las Vegas metropolitan police department where police -tective conducted an interview with the plaintiff who also she claims reiterated the same thing that the nurse said that she would be humiliate the victim as sexual. So in that Cristiano Renaldo end individuals socio with would further humiliate hurt by publicly characterizing as a woman who consented to sexual intercourse and because of his wealth and fame was now attempting to extort money from Krishna around now to by falsely accusing him of sexual assault. Martin is getting rough. I don't keep. I basically, I genuinely think that there is a lot of. Interesting things that were not as camp Rinaldo has either said or has not said Rinaldo. 's lawyer has has not said that this is not true. Rinaldo himself said it was fake news, however, Rinaldo himself as saying that sex did happen, but it was consensual. And I think the most interesting thing about this is that Renault's lawyer basically said this was a blink a Layton and. What's. Invasion of Renault's privacy and for that to be their defense that just shakes the wrong way. But I think they're all these. Horrible allegations kinda can be validated through the medical examination that she went underwent as well as going to the Las Vegas police department to file this complaint and for the nurse and the detective to say, if you go forward with us, if you come public with us, you're gonna face retaliation from CR seven as well as all of his fans worldwide. He's the most popular player in the world and the abuse that she might were would receive coming forward with this would be actually it would be horrible because we see this happen every single day. So I think there are so many complicated parts to this, but it just there's a lot of inconsistencies with the responses that Granados campus given if that makes yes, I'm gonna continue on to the mediation that occurred. But yeah, I'm going to get more into consistencies which came out on the footy leaks, which will get to shortly. So there was a mediation that took place where MRs mortga the plaintiff, in the case, thought Christiana would be there. She thought she'd be able to confront him there. He was not present during the mediation during this plaintiff claims that she was erratic, not in the right mind, suffering from the traumatic experience from the alleged sexual assault. I believe the first offer was like nine hundred thousand dollars and there's text messages exchanged between the attorneys Renaldo saying this way too high. Ultimately the mediation turn to about three hundred seventy five thousand American. I believe the amount is about two hundred sixty thousand euros. I believe that's correct. Again, this led to a nondisclosure agreement. And now this is the biggest point of contention within this whole case is the NDA which stated that there'd be no mentioned Coronado of this that he wouldn't be able to. There would be nothing to be able to be filed against Chris, you're on auto going forward. What people have called this is that, oh, this is hush money for something he did Cristiano not camp would say, oh no, this is someone just making a false claim and just trying to make this go away. So I'm just trying to make sure we're covering both sides of the coin here. Yeah. And I mean, I think it's super interesting that this information was gathered by footy or footie leagues on them released by fully leaks, and they have hundreds and thousands of documents from communications from Renault's lawyers to miss my orders, lawyers as well as all the medical police report. So I think our speaker today, phenomenal job releasing the report of this remaining unbiased than showing everything that happened from two thousand nine up until the twenty. Seventh of September twenty eighteen and it shows that there was a NDA signed, and now that this was signed, technically neither party can talk about this. So I think the next steps that we're going to see in the coming days coming weeks however long this takes to be resolved. And the truth to be found out is the NBA's going to have to be design. Solved. That's no easy. But I mean, that's the that's the biggest point of the complaints that and that the plate of side, miss my organs team are claiming that the NDA is known void because in the because during the time of the mediation, she was not well, she was very vulnerable and that she was of not right of mine to be signing or dealing in that she had also at the time they're claiming the lawyer was an inexperienced lawyer who didn't know how to handle the case and that she was not in the right mind. Oh yeah. And. Allegedly the lawyer that handle the original NDA was a traffic violations lawyer, so that that kind of tells you there are some questions. However, notice camp is going to tell you that she went to work right afterwards. She went out with friends. She went out with family right afterwards. So if she was in if she was not in the right mind to sign a NDA, how could she be in the right mind to go to work to socialize to see their family and for them to have no idea. And I think that's, that's another argument that the CR seven camp is going to use to keep the NDA in place. So after all this, I don't think we're going to find out the truth if that NDA is not dissolved and discredited. No, I completely agree, but I'm gonna jump to the footy leaks, which release a bunch of emails from the attorneys during this mediation. One of them is another claim. NDA should be dissolved. It was a letter that missing my org. Wanted read to Mr. Renault of to Cristiano Renaldo that offend in this case and was told that this Email was read to Rinaldo, but by the defense attorney by renowned attorneys and the foot leaks revealed that there was forwarded to other attorneys. And he had said Pinocchio, which I intern imply that it was not. I don't know you can. You can interpret that as well as you want. But the one that the most damning document that was released was a set of I want to call them interrogatory because that's why I'm like familiar with it is the questionnaire Marnie know what I'm referring to actually looking at it right now. So in this case, they did not. What's it called? They referred to her as MS see in the questionnaire. There was no names like I believe. In the mediation Christine autos furred to as Tofa. His name is never ever mentioned in this, but in the questionnaire which is supposed to be from Rinaldo says, did MRI ever razor voice, Creamer, yo? And the reply is she said, no, stop several times. So that's the that is the big piece because up to that point almost seems like he said she said case, but that seems to be the damning for those. Who believe they'll to bleed the alleged claim seem to be the most damning evidence. Yeah, and it's it's very, I mean, that answer to the interrogatory is very dangerous for Rinaldo and his cat because it it truly does cast any doubt on his denial that it was was not consensual because if the plaintiff did say no installed several times Rinaldo admitted that she didn't say that, how can you call this fake news? How can you say it was consensual? So once again that that shows that there is reason to look more into it. So my organs lawyer actually filed a civil complaint that challenges the settlement and the NBA itself. So that's going to be the next step that we're going to see in the coming days. Yeah. So. With that claim despite their Spiegel I don't know pronouncing right. Try to follow up with miss my orga. She ran away the try to follow up with Rinaldo. They denied it. They said that this is all fictional that they would sued the newspaper for trying to defame. Mr. Rinaldo yet. Renault's lawyer actually said sorry to cut in real quick. But based on that whole defamation standpoint, we're all those lawyers said that this publication from Bigler is absolutely illegal and quote. It violates the personal rights and quote of Cristiano Renaldo. And so that lawyer never said it was a piece of fiction. He doesn't call it fake. He doesn't say it's wrong. He just says, it's it's too personal and to private to become public. No, no, yeah. You're absolutely right. Moving on. These are the actions within the complaint that the plaintiff is alleging. The first causes battery. The sexual Sammy, the plaintiff, five Bernado constitutes battery. They're asking for suffered damages, some fifty thousand the intentional emotional distress, which she claims that she has post traumatic stress disorder and major depression based on the traumatic incident that she alleges. The third action is coercion in fraud. So this is what this is a major one because they're trying to say they will worst her into the mediation that Renault's camp, which they are calling fixers. So this is the fixers of Renault's problem. That's what the play. That is what the complaint states that they were coerced. Because if they essentially saying if miss my Oga didn't comply that they were going to ruin her and because he's such a big superstar, that's why when she first went to the police and I, she didn't want to say anything. They want to say it was Chris. Kiara because she was a freight of his fame in his fans of his stardom essentially. Do you see what I'm saying? Yeah, yeah, I do. Okay. So that's that. Sorry. I'm just trying to flip through this thing is thirty two pages guys. I've read it twice now. It is not fun. Moving onto the fourth claim of voter, person of she's universal due to what occurred. Here we go to the fifth. 'cause racketeering and civil conspiracy. Now, this is a big one that I think needs to be addressed because what is being alleged here is essentially because they went through mediation, they try to. Stop like the process of the police. I guess that's that's kind of what they're trying to say here. That the investigation by the Las Vegas police kind of went away because they tried to just swipe under the bus with this mediation or hush money. Do you see what I'm saying? Yeah, yeah. I mean, but in a civil in a civil case like this in a settlement case like this and we've seen it before in the history of America is that this kind of bypasses any type of punishment or any type of accountability for the defendant if set allegation is true, if they settle out of court, then it's done. So they're basically saying that they conspired to make sure it never reached the police even though the police were already contacted. Yeah. Well, they're trying to say here is the activties and conspiracy 'cause where the delay or prevented the criminal investigation and prosecution of cushy our not for the soul that code on June thirteenth, two thousand nine. My NPR voices on point right now by the way, also defamation of character. That's the six calls of action. I don't need to get into that. And then the seventh call is abuse of process, including alternative dispute resolution, including me is a legal process recognized and protected by Nevada statutes. Let me see here. Sorry, I had my notes written here. Okay. All right. Well, that's a seven. 'cause I don't fully understand it. I mean, if you guys wanna go through this giant three, two page complaint, please do so. And then the causing action essentially saying throughout the NBA all so this can complete, can like go through uniting. All right. So that's where we are with all this stuff going on. You guys, you know what the judge always says. In every case that I've worked in you guys or the fact finders were just here to report what has been reported that is the complaint that is stuff from the dirt spiral. Article and you know, we think it was important to, you know, cover this very sensitive topic is a very sensitive issue. But I think my personal opinion is if any of these claims are true or even if it does go to court, this could be bigger. This could be the OJ Simpson of the twenty th century. This could be the OJ Simpson case of international world. The thing that I draw most parallels with is the whole Koby. Bryant thing that happened in the early two thousand. So I think this is huge news no matter what happens and no matter how this is resolved. I'm what is found out because it is a serious allegation. Rinaldi's camp has pushed back on this allegation. So it's, I mean, it's horrible to talk about, and it's just something that we wanted to tell you guys about. We don't wanna shy away from anything. We wanna be, you know, pretty unbiased when it comes to incidences like this and. If you guys find anything incorrect with any of our statements Cleese you know, let us know and because we want to keep up with the store and we wanna know about this story and we wanna make sure that we give you guys accurate information. So if y'all know any any extra details or have any opinions reach out to us, we can talk about it on. This has been a really tough way to start. It podcast. Diving right into this, but we think we owe it to you guys. So have you want to move on to something a lot Cyrus. Serious? I I do. I just have one last thought the fact that you know, we've never backed down from talking about anything. I think you know, we've covered racism. We've covered all sorts of other things on this podcast. This is probably been the most difficult because it's it's a lot. There's a lot information to go over and I have one more thing I wanted to say Marin. I'm so sorry. Oh, and the other important thing is because of this, the the Las Vegas police department has reopened the nation, which means they're opening a could be looking into criminal charges which is different than civil, where the state of Nevada could sue Cristiano Renaldo. And there are no statute of limitations in the state of Nevada with sexual assault. So I just wanna make that perfectly clear. All right. And one more piece of. You know, judges and courtrooms and lawsuits and everything. And luckily, this does not have to do with anything about Rinaldo, but a kid in la- do Mississippi did not make his high school soccer team. So his mom and step mom sued the school and tried to force the coach to, you know, bring the kid onto the soccer team that's fucking humiliating. And that's the type of news I wanna see in the soccer world. A hillock opther parents suing schools because their kids fucking shit at soccer. I didn't make this soccer team my freshman year when I first tried out, guess what my mom did not sewage school. She told me to keep practicing. I have no faith in our younger generation in terms of how many hillock our parents there are, and. Why? Why would you sue school? Why would you put your own kid through this shit? Embarrassing that shit is. I mean, for me, my dad says, just not in the stars for you. So he. Shut you down. Yeah, he set me straight early on sports aren't for you. Just stick to the books and that also didn't work out. So drinking charm Kev I can open my beer now. I'm fucking so ready to drink my God. Yeah. Oh, okay. I'm drinking. I'm so sorry. The cyber leaf I have right now. That was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do for this podcast. Assize like hear my own voice, but like I'm drinking dogfish Ed sixty mnay drank it before I just needed something that I've had and like I'm used to. And I was like something comforting after going through that whole Rinaldo shit. So. Okay. Fuck helicopter parents. Can we talk some fuzzy? Can we talk about the weekend. Oh, God. Damnit. The first game on the list is United West Ham. Let's end the pot here. Let's just be sad. We don't have to talk about anything more. We're done. Okay. Manchester. Lost three one to West Ham at home. You gotta love that picture of the bubbles around Josie. Marino. Skulls by Anderson, Linda all own-goal are not of it. Who was definitely pissed that we talked about that people were talking about how hot is wife was the week before. Marcus rush, got a consolation goal, but it was pretty much wrapped up by then ruin Ono. Our notice came in the seventy four th minute. So then it was wrapped up restaurants and seventy. First minute. So the sea like seasons, cancelled, rape, we don't do stir fucking fire. Let's let's just lay out some facts. This is the worst start for Manchester United team in twenty nine years. This is this was the semi second game in a row without the same squad without the same team. This has become a group of players who do not want to play for Jose Marino and every single thing every single problem every single crack showed in this game hosing Marino said today before the Valencia game that Manchester none lost its dignity with this game. Manchester United has not won a game of soccer in September nineteenth. It's almost been two weeks. They've been lost their dignity at this point in time. If the players have given up on Jose Marino. The fans have given up on Jose Marino Jose Marino needs to get the sec. I will say there. There is no way this is a cohesive team under hosing, radio seventy, two games without the same team kept like what? Fucking what team has ever done that. You stick with the players that do well, and if each individual cannot even make it consistent start, how the hell are they supposed to get better? How the hell are they supposed to know what hosing, Reno once in every single game, if they can't even start three quarters of the game together, it's it's absolutely it's an absolute farce. And I'm so fucking pissed at Jose Marino. I mentioned not at this point. I think it changed needs to happen immediately immediately. Yeah, there has to be something. I think it was Paul schools e or someone said, this could be the worst season in mentors, United history, which I was like, whoa, okay. Ginger, this is pretty bold claim shadow to West Ham, getting seven points out of nine, I believe with Chelsea Everton United. That's wild for them. Good for them. I think we could start seeing. We were trying to like, say that West Ham, we're done. For the season. I e them like this is like pretty good stream of form against him, pretty formidable. You know teams. But yeah, dude, I think renews had to have lost the locker room. I'm surprised he's still there now, and you guys drew today, so I'm just, I don't. I don't even have that much to say. I'm just pissed because it's my first time betting on Manchester United. I went to for two or the weekend. I bet. Man u which fucked me, and then I bet on Liverpool, but it was a draw. So I'm like, okay, but I got lesser in Tottenham rate. So both. I bet Brian for like two bucks just because why the fuck not. But so yeah, I've never betting on mattress United Martin. Thanks. Trust me. I don't bet on United. I I do the calling cowherd approach. I bet on my team, so even if they do better team. So even if they lose at least make some money. So I'm happy and going to your thing about schools, the schools he said today at halftime of the Valencia game, that quote, Jose Marino is embarrassing Manchester United. I think his mouth is out of control. If you got Paul schools who does not like media, he does not like attention to start speaking out against you, you you done up a wrong like he Marino has completely lost locker room. United has had a horrible run inform in the last two weeks. We're starting twenty nine years. I absolutely believe this could be if they the Manchester United board is stubborn and sticks with hosing Marino. This could be the worst year for mentioned. However, with the fans, the United fans or still so supportive of the majority of the players that play a lot of the hate doesn't seem to be focused on the players. It seems to be focused on Jose marina which is well deserved with the exception of Alexi Sanchez because a genuinely thing, Manchester people are going to run him out of town with knives and pitchforks. Yes, going to be the frigate side effect for sure. I don't know what the hell going on with Sanchez. I mean, Mets ozo- has more goals for arsenal than Sanchez started like, that's, that's that. What. I don't know, man, I don't know what needs to happen. I don't know. It's just Marino just you just like, you know, dump the whole team and start fresh, you know, I don't know. I do. What are your? What are your thoughts? And I heard sittings Adang today said, you know, there's rumors every day zillions coming to Manchester United, but today saying, oh, he wants to go back to you Ventas and coach there and take over for Pellegrini's or not. Pellegrini maximal. I agree. Sorry, I got the, I got the agrees green mixed up, so. So what are your stance you want Sadan or what do you? What do you want to have have changed United going forward? I mean. Cut it off at a Ted. Cut it off at who's Marino his comments towards the players over the past three years. I've been embarrassing to say the least downright fucking mean and at their best, and and he's obviously a problem. He's obviously lost the locker room. Paul Bunn himself are giving each other death layers in practice. None of the players really have that cohesive mentality where they respond positively to this manager. Nuku hasn't scored in five games, defenses, absolute shit. So and it's not an individual thing because each of these players were brought into Manchester United for a specific reason. They did very well at their old clubs, so it's a management thing, get rid of the head of the snake, and it's not going to bite you get rid of Jose Marino. And at this point I don't give a damn if sedan comes in right now or if he comes in next season or if he doesn't come in all get a coach that is going to make the players respond positively and turn this burning fucking dumpster fire around. I. It's it's genuinely simple Jose. Maria does not have the players respect trust or the locker room at all. Get him the fuck out. He's not gonna. Do anything better. Yeah, no, I think eloquent really poetry in motion where your words Martin. And I think it's ringing throughout all of Manchester. Onto you have so much a embrace embrace hate Martin. I, she, we should make a shirt Manchester, United, embrace hate. Tottenham wins against the terriers. Shocker for me, you know, Huddersfield's form. You know, I keep thinking this is going to be weekday, bounce back. It wasn't Tottenham with a brace by Kane and the twenty fifth minute and the thirty four th minute with a penalty. Yeah. I mean, I don't really have any crazy things really say about this game. But asides, you know, seem sue of a really recovered from a slump. Oh, yeah. And I think it's super porn before they go up against Barcelona tomorrow to get that win against Huddersfield. Again, my only criticism is they kinda still or missing edged that Chris passes, and I think that can be boiled down to know Ericsson squad. Once he comes back, I think it's gonna elevate the whole game system, but him does. Tom has kind of come out of that slump they seem to have recovered some of their old form Pocchettino positive. However, there's some huge has injury concerns for them, especially going in the Champions League tomorrow. And then this weekend. When they play Carter city, they are missing deli krizner IX and moose them. Belay yon, Tongan, and surge Hoyer. And that's that's a huge part of their first team. So hoping that they get back into the squad quickly and that bite that edged that taught them had all last year. And most of the time is going to come back but positive for Taunton fans. Worldwide is the drunk driving Hugo is back in goal, and it's no more form. Yeah, he looks very sober during the game that was good to see. I was worried. Thirty one game win streak coming for Martin. Is that what we're calling now? And that's how they win the league. I think so because each time type these notes and each time hunters loses are just take one away from the winning streak that they're going to go on next week. So yeah, big thirty one game winning streak. And if they don't win this coming weekend, you know, it's going to be a huge thirty game win streak. So I still got faith in the terriers still going to win the league still my champions. Yeah, my champion moving on to arsenal versus what furred we have an own gold by Kef Kat and eighty first minute, and then a goal by oats. Mets. It ozo- and the eighty. Third, I was very impressed Sharma another week or low key coming up baby. Martin. All right. I got your back. I lost you there for baby. I was worried I didn't. I couldn't hear you. I was really worried reaching out my hand to grab you and you were there. We're there. All right. But yeah, we're not Emory is really been like, I don't know, man, this is like I am. I getting false hopes might getting that whole arsenal feeling again. Like we're back is arsenal back. Can I say that. I would agree with you and it takes. It takes a lot for me to give arsenal some credit where they deserve it, but I think they do deserve or snow under United. Looks like a completely revised team. You know, like this game last year, in my opinion, as you know, kind of sort of or snow hater like I like ours, no, I don't hate him like Liverpool or anything. But I feel like last year they could have lost drawn this game this year. They're going to find that late goal unite. I'm getting the max, the maximum effort, the maximum results out of these players that kind of were in a slump in wingers later years. So do I'll go ahead and said arsenals kind of back. Oh, we're back. It just it's, it's just fun to see. Man just doing well. It's almost like we're just carefree because we don't have expectations of winger right now. You know what I mean? And it's just so fun to see fun attacking arsenal again, it feels like I've seen in the past couple of years, but it's been like, you know, almost synthetic like not real. I don't know what the word is. I wanna use like just not genuine arsenal attacking football too. But if you'll like a new look for them in like really writing the ship, and also show Leno for getting his debut because better check just, you know, had a little dizzy didn't. He had little little little. A little banana slip. The bowl, and you know out bowls dupay just they broke Peter check. He tried to go for goal kick and you know what the both had on. You're gonna tear your hands during. Actually, I don't know the severity of the injury, but I mean it was, let's say, hamstring we'll say hamster, right? Right on it was cool. The first reported here. Got it. Listen here, heard it here first, but it was cool to see Lino getting his debut. And I think that once Lino gets comfortable into or snow system that they're going to be a better team with him rather than check because Leno can really play the ball out of the back and it's almost city. Like in the way you guys played out the Tiggy talk football is actually back and working well when you play it out of the back with Lena. But on the flip side of things, what for did not disappoint in this game, what for hung in there. The majority of the game and they were taking the game to you at some points. Like I said last year, I think what I would have gone the wind. So we got questions about this. And last week's part is what for the real deal, and I'm gonna ask you is Waterford still real deal because even though they lost, they did not look like losers. No. I mean, they played really well. I mean, it's just kind of unfortunate with the own goal and you kind of seeing the wind taken out of them. You know what I mean? That I think they're good t- I am making the top ten, you know, I, I don't. I don't really have that crazy amount of doubts about them. No joy. And right now they're in six. Please sitting two points behind arsenal. So you know what we're going into week next week and what this still hanging on the cusp of the top six. Well, they are in six. Thanks to my team being intent, but I I'm kind of impressed by what furred and I'm super impressed by or under United unite. Yeah, I'm Brian. This Emory trae man, top four. Okay. All right. Well, I'll keep you know which is just sad top more. But like I thought we were gonna get like, get like other. We're going to be like in the six place. So this is this is a win. This is a win for me. So let me have this. Let me have this. Got it. It's going to be tween. It's going to be screened UN taught him at the end of the season because Chelsea city Liverpool just look in a different class to everybody else. So yeah, I mean, I think taught for is a good place to finish for a first year manager after a couple years of just depression. So I mean big ups to unite them big, big ups to system because do like we made fun of United. We're lent literally for going to PS Jian Shan how we completely cracked under the pressure and lost in the Champions League multiple times. So it's it's good to see you doing. Well, it reminds me of his days back in severe really challenging the top. Three. And eventually, I think if this progression continues or slow within a couple years, going to challenge for the title at self. All right, don't right slowdown are moving on trying to jinx it. Dude. I'm trying to jinx it. So you guys start sucking starts doing well. Piece of shit. All right. Moving onto the wonder wolves, what Harry wolves and Wolverhampton aka Saint Luke FC what? What? I don't get that reference. Tell me the Saint Luke FC reference in a second. They'd be Southampton to know and I took Southampton to play devil's advocate, never picking Southampton again goals by Cavallero and Castro auto Oto. I don't have pronounce his name. I didn't watch this game Martin. So tell me how they do the watering wolves. I mean they're continuing their good form so doing well. Yeah. I mean, granted goals came the super late part of game seventy. Nine hundred eighty seven th minute and. I think the wolves are in a similar situation as where are they real deal. They keep proving that they could be. So yeah, they did well under Nuno Sanchez. I really liked this team under Mick McCarthy, three years ago. I hated this team, but the wandering wolves in Wolverhampton. AK, Saint Luke's ESI. I think that they have a lot to be proud of. I think they are by far and away the best team that came up from the championship. We said that before, but to jump back to that Saint Louis c. I love the fact that it's other Wolverhampton Wanderers or Wolverhampton wolves. So I'm just changing the name of the club every single week and I'm doing research on Wolverhampton. They used to be called Saint Luke FC. I'm gonna change the name of next weekend because I just I love the wondering what was in Wolverhampton love them. Okay. Well, God damn Saint Luke FC. Fuck him. Also, you know what? Fuck Southampton to. I'm so happy they lost even though I didn't bet on them, but like I'm just happy. They lost because you know, Claude, Piel, all right on to Lester who I did bet on. Let's go boys, defeating Newcastle, two-nil, making breath of. Nita's sad. Once again, Jamie Vardi it's already party with the goal in the thirtieth minute in big old blockhead Tobey Maguire I was kidding our boy blockhead McGuire seventy. Third minute. Marin. I mean Harry Tobey Maguire God. I love his just giant big block of dome head. Yeah, he's pretty fantastic. He's by far, much ever defender in the print. The Amine Lester just dominated these this game itself, and now they basically establish themselves as look at toppy top nine team. They're going to run train on Newcastle one day this this game. I think the biggest news from this game is one blockhead Harry Maguire scoring because God bless that man and to Newcastle was fifty. FOX Newcastle is fhu cct. I mean, what a shame I would hate to see Newcastle go back to the championship. I would never say that on the podcast, but it would be a real shame if they went back to Newcastle of what we. Seen before, but I don't know less. There's flying high. I just love that lesser. I think we can officially say is a staple of the Premier League like I was so worried that they're going to get immediately relegated after winning the Premier League. And it'd be like one year wonder. I feel like they're here to stay like, you know. And that makes me so happy because now they're just like they can just like rub it in so many teams faces and be like, you know, we won the, you know, like like three years ago, like you guys like, who are you like? I just love that so much. And if they were in the championship and you'd be around, I mean, I guess it'd be big brags and the the no in the championship as well. But I think it's so much better that like lesser players like, hey, Liverpool arsenal, Tottenham sub guys. Yeah, I just I just love Lester always have since there. You know, relegation defeating Neil Warnock, save it from saving the club from being relegated on the last day. And then the next season winning the championship and both human is kind of thought that Lester would be relegated in the next couple of years. But yeah, midtable establish team and I fucking love it. And on the flip side of things, Newcastle is shit. The owner is completely delusional and now Newcastle fans are starting to blame Rafa Benitez. This is the first ever or worst ever start for them at Saint James part. And I have a solution for them. They need to bring in sentient newness from the movie goal because he'll go Nunez was sick and he played for Newcastle, and I think they actually be Chelsea in that game. So bring. Sentier go Nunez and Gavin Harris, and you will have a title winning club. That's my message to Mike Ashley, the owner of Newcastle. If you're hearing it now find sandiego newness. Okay. Well, I'm gonna get rocky and I'm gonna get him the fife Floyd Mayweather so he loses his undefeated. We'll get some fictional characters and we'll solve all these issues in our lives. Is that what you're saying? -absolutely but son Santiago? I can't even fucking say his name. Eunice is not fictional documentary. He's my hero Kevin, don't you dare disrespect him by bringing rocky? I've never seen goal, but I mean, I've been telling you for year that you need to see and you still need to say it. It's probably hot garbage, but moving on to Manchester City versus Brighton, the unofficial capital of England. Dammit. I really wanted them the wind. I put two bucks on them. I would've won fifty bucks but razz with the goal in the twenty nine th minute rare with the second goal for the sixty. Fifth minute. Oh, what a go by guero. I mean, I was at the tier nog Irish bar and grill with all the man city guys because half the bar is main city at the bars, Chelsea. So I figured I'll go for the Chelsea Liverpool match there, and I got there early. Yep. Just reminding us there really, really good. Really good Martin. Yeah. I mean, Aguayo strike was just, you know, kind of indicative of how fucking amazing. He really is. He's got one hundred forty, seven goals in the Premier Li. And I think I think Brighton put up a decent fight. They're going to prove that they're not gonna roll over. They did. Well, we talked about this last week. They did well be Manchester that they did well against Tottenham and Liverpool. But in this game city fucking had twenty eight shots and they remained city remains the only team that I never see panic in there even when they're down to zero. Even when they're never going to win a game, they still play. They're saying system, they are calm. They're cool. They're collected a private prioritized passing and creating gaps in the defense rather than just long balls like some teams do United. So a genuinely thing that city is back in business in the English Premier League. The Champions League is a whole nother story. We'll probably have another podcast about that later this week, but yeah, city just showing everybody why. Top the table and why they're still champions were champions last year. Yeah, I always. I'm like, it's almost like the patriots down, like, when are they going to suck? And they're just not. And it's like. Like, I just want you to be bad, but you're so good and you're so well coached, and you're just like, so good all over. It just hurts man. In fact, the ever hime guero Kevin to Brian is not even playing, but he's back in training now like. I mean, just made city is just like every team in the Premier Li should look at me and sitting like, what are they doing and just emulate it like you should be like taking notes, like what is pep Guardiola in this team doing? Because that's the future of football. They what they're doing as way above what everyone else is doing. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And I mean, granted, they only had two goals, but they had twenty eight shots. And it wasn't like a panic. Shelter wasn't shorts that were wayward. It was shots that challenge to keep your challenge the defense and they just do this time and time. Again, the thing that I think stands out most about city is their consistency under in their way of play and the quality of play. So yeah, city with another great weekend and they are back to the top of the table with Todd with Liverpool who will get to psych tied at nineteen point. So yet good weekend for city fans. The only thing I will say is it kind of cracks me up that the city bore is shared by the Chelsea bar and both are faked logs. So why. The low bit of happiness, tiny, tiny, low bit. Okay. Well. That's fair. Moving on. To Everton vs Fulham Everton with a route of Fulham, brace by gifts occur Tsen former swan and Icelandair giant Inigo by tocine and the Sieff minute. What a great weekend for, you know, men in blazers in with the bears Everton. So that's pretty pretty great for Raj. Cigarettes were living up to his price tag Morton. Now he is. I think that they found a good midfield. Midfield part for him to play. He's playing with gay and Tom Davies, and he does look after a couple of struggles earlier on this season that he is worth as price tag. He's playing some brilliant bowls. He's scorn goals now at this point. So, yeah, I think this was a dominating show by Everton and just pretty easily dispatched Fulham, pretty damn measly. Yeah, I was like really surprised. I thought full really give, you know something like some type of lake friction or some type of competition. But I see in your news, not a single shot on target by full. It's crazy. Yeah, it was. It was actually a horrifying performance from full in Fulham, especially with the fact that Metra vich has been scoring will over the past three weeks Paseo, really. And for them not to muster, a single shot on target really shows that. Was that just lucked for Fulham with that? Just look for major vich or you know, maybe it's not. Maybe this was an off game. I wasn't off game because full more fun team to watch. So, yeah, I think pretty dominating tactical performance from Everton this week. Yeah. I mean, definitely see that they're trying to get back on the right foot, but let's move onto the game of the weekend. Chelsea versus Liverpool God, what a fantastic game, whatever you if you're a Chelsea or the pool supporter, I mean, or whoever supporter, you can't emit that these were two fantastic sides. Like just just to heavyweight boxers, going back punch-for-punch for punch like this was such an entertaining game, though. The scorelines only one. Both teams were just going for it. You know what I mean? And goals by Eden hazard with some magic in the twenty fifth minute. And then. Daniel Sturridge with the most ridiculous goal. I was just like what I watched it. I'm like, I just felt like I had like an aneurysm in my brain because I was like that that does not seem like something Daniel surge would do in that moment. But I looked at his goal record as substitute. He's amazing. He's like jerus-. He's just great off the bench. What what are your thoughts about this game are in and it? I think it's a good draw by Liverpool's very happy with the draw Chelsea's kind of gutted with the late goal that they couldn't, you know, move up over Liverpool in the table, but what are your thoughts about this game? I mean, I agree with you. This was the most beautiful game. I've seen all season and by far it's just to attack minded coach is going at each other with sorry and clock. So we just got to see the best of their forwards and pretty damn good defense. I might add because only one one and. Jesus. I'm allergic to something. But yeah, if I was a fan on pretty devastated, I thought that they kind of deserve that win and to let it go so late in the game from a audacious goal by Danny storage is disappointing. But I think the thing that people are figuring out the season about Liverpool is that Salal has taken a serious setback. He had a pretty horrible game against Chelsea. He's been awful season, and it seems to me that for menial is the one that's pulling the strings. It's for menu money that's doing the bulk of the productive attacking. And then on the flip side of things for Chelsea, I thought the best player on the pitch as well on Chelsea was. He didn't has managed just absolutely on fire. And same goes for Kovachev. I did not know how Kovachev would fit into sorry system, but he looks fantastic. So with the attacking players has. For me. No Kovacic law Monay Jerudong Pedro. It just created a fucking fun game and followed thing. Then I had my doubts about, sorry, I'd doubts about, sorry, coming in to the English Premier League from Napoli, but the man is just loving thing Premier Li like he's dominating English Premier League. We always talk about this. I don't know how Choshi how Roman Abramovich can choose that one perfect coach to come in and just dominate the EP. Oh, because that's what sorry is doing. He's in the conversation in my mind. For one of the top two coaches in the Premier Li right now, this season, I think it's him in pep. Yeah, the fact that he came in so well, like, you know, and just like a mealy flourished. I think Amri as well. I mean that those at the cable like. Claw. Yeah, but then you got the wolves coach. Then you've got Nuno Sanchez for the wolves, Marco Silva who moved from Everton last year to moved to Everton biz past summer. So you got a bunch of new coaches who are playing super entertaining soccer. So I think this is a really good year for the coaches with exception of hosing radio. So yeah, Souris just dominating men. Yeah. I mean. Back to has are I mean easily PFA player of the year contender. Like number one, like I couldn't even tell you who would be second, but like the Sears, I saw what he was doing, how he to go the bowl, and I was like, oh, he's literally score that same goal like four times this year already just right across the keeper. It's just he's just ice skates across the fucking like pitch. He's just the way his movement were each just so great to watch. And if I'm any Chelsea fan, I'm telling Abramovich open of the books, give him whatever before reiterated comes and comes knocking. After the hazard goal, we called each other, and there was a picture perfect representation of his goal in the care about coq against Liverpool. So I totally agree, I think, has the best player in the Premier League right now this season by far I don't think anybody can compare to what he's doing so far. Not just with the goals that he's getting with performances that is putting in so hazard was easily my man of the match and my man of the season so far. And I think that is the story system letting has are just go at players telling him to attack attack attack, go at their feet rather than kind of pass around them. And I think that's where hazardous most dangerous. Oh, sorry is getting the most out of them. Yeah. I mean, he's just been like Joe, like what's been going on like, why can't I just like go forward. So we got the two last games. We got the Sunday game per in the Cardiff and bore myth Crystal Palace over the Monday matchup. I really don't have too much say about either of these games. I watched the Burnley card game. Burnley played the most Burnley game ever with her three shots and winning two one. Like it's the most just literally Burnley like they're going to Dr Tuesday take. They're gonna take them, but they're gonna make like literally like three of them. Pretty much. I did not expect again, though. I expect that shit against light Lester born watt, furred west hand, not against a team that has won a single game. Sean dieters just like. All right. We know how to take advantage of this team. They're gonna come really at us. We can hold steady and you know it just sucks card because you really thought like, you know, this could be their first dub and victory Al for Cardiff. You millennials? I, I'm with it. You know fortnight. Yeah, so much. Okay. We want the next game. Yep. Joe. Okay, me. All right. So win. Weird, awkward pause. Yeah, we're really good to one. Chris palace goes by Brooks van hoped, STAN loss, cherries. I mean coming big on the Monday night game. I kind of figured this win. They've been great form in the top ten right. Am I crazy right there in the top number seven, actually? Yeah. Oh, shit. I mean, just the tales of arsenal anyhow, really wants that job really well job back tied with watt furred, but I'll go differential. Okay. I mean, Eddie. How rides a tight ship, man. I'm a, you know, as much as I love crystal. I don't really care for Christa palace, but you know, I have a big anyhow sport because I thought he was going to be my manager at arsenal. I'm very impressed how Eddie house already just like starting off on the right foot and putting his teams in the right positions. Yeah. I mean, I didn't watch this game, but I did watch the highlights. The first goal by Brooks was just a fucking strike and and Stanislas winner was also a gorgeous stripe. So yeah, I mean, I think born myth under anyhow, has a direction, a positive direction, and these individual plays are just making it look better and veteran bore Muth is you know, in seven and looking quite comfortable this year and to go up against Crystal Palace who I think is dangerous in certain aspects, but to get that win to play on Monday and get that win. That's that's good for born mental fans everywhere shutout to the pop and cherries. Alright, guys, I have one more thing to say congrats to at nj will six or being are fifteen nineteen winner. We did a random name randomize. I don't know we we had like forty something retweets and Blake's where he put everyone's name in there. And then we just picked.

Yes, you can do both warning this product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. Short to critical calls when against the Cleveland Browns disappointing. Three to one zero league has all this money. Why don't we have fulltime Wirth's Christiano Rinaldo denied allegations that he raped a woman fake fake news. This is not going away. College is when the earth is flat. No more talk, let the kids play. How about that new pictures and everything welcome to the Friday for your on outside the lines. I'm Ryan Smith in for Bob Lee, the first week of October, every major sport is in play. We've got LeBron wearing Laker gold pucks have been dropped in the NHL. The dream match-up Yankee Sox's is upon us and in the NFL things are looking up. Yeah, we'll explain. So joining me here back undefeated Clinton gates, spotted flip his bad at ESPN softball game. Does he says, let the kids play. ESPN senior writer, Don van Natta spotted at the ESPN, the hotel. This amending, the ways major league baseball just can't catch a break of the turnstiles and Jerry shop who apologizes for nothing. Even though he was spotted in Seattle, having the three hour sushi launch instead of doing a big interview. Nice to be you gene Goodall. Yeah, in the wound, I know and she knew soccer. Kidding. By the way speaking, things are going well right now in October and speaking of things going. Well, things are really looking for the NFL these days ratings up by three percent over last year. New stars like Patrick Mahomes are shining and the games. They just see better. Take the last week, six fourth quarter comebacks mom week now that's not all that glitters is not gold. There are all those pesky rules. Roughing. The passer penalties aren't the only story by the way according to ESPN's, Kevin Seaford, illegal contact penalties up threefold since last year. So let's get into guys NFL. I gotta say they took a lot of eat last year ratings being down. I remember being on some of those calls and they question after question. Why are the ratings down now they're up, especially for the afternoon games. We've got better matchups. We've had better games and everybody who is saying games getting too soft. That's going to have a detrimental effect on ratings and interest. You're ruining football. You're making a man's man's game into something. That we can't recognize well, looks like right now based on the evidence. So far he's got nothing to do with what attracts people to football. It's not about. It's not about reckless violence. It's about the physicality, and and you know, this is good news, weekly, and points. Physicality. Then why are they about the points years ago? Was Pete Rozelle said we want parody now. It's just want points. I'm pretty remarkable that Goth cousins, Rothlisberger and car are all on pace to break the season the the one year most yards thrown record. It's this is what fans want. And you know, even the controversy works to their benefit, there's a lot of inconsistency in the calls and we're still talking about it on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, we're replaying those calls and going through it and and they love that, you know, and any controversies good for the NFL by the way that hate you over and over again. Andrew luck not call. That's right. Let's not forget. They've gone to overtime every single week this year. So we've had some tight games differences in terms of what we're talking about competitive wise and also the story lines. Turn it over. Thank God Steelers. Not that great patriots. We've seen them sort of Cumberland back story. There are new things to talk about in a league that people already want to like in terms of what's happening with the Browns for God's sakes. They game. That's insane. You mentioned and the. Rams are fun story with McVeigh out. There's just new stuff on the slate, which is a good reason to get back into it is America miracle likes offense. You know, I mean, that's what it comes points are being put up on the board yardage. It's like pinball out there. It looks like the arena football league from nineteen Ninety-seven is what people want. Yeah, I feel -fensive players, but I love it. Everybody in America seems to love it. It's just growing in popularity and gotta say, feel bad for defenders. Richard sherman's not. He won't be happy for a long teaming. Good either. Yeah, that's right. Okay. Let's move on to our other big story. Very big one. The world's most famous athlete Cristiano Renaldo under criminal investigation a case reopened in Las Vegas by woman who alleges that he sexually assaulted her in two thousand nine. Now, according to a complaint filed by the lawyer of Catherine my orga, the soccer star assaulted in her hotel room claim that she reported to police at the time. Now eventually my orga and Rinaldo agreed to an out of court settlement with my orchids signing nondisclosure agreement receiving three hundred and seventy five grand, but she claims she was coerced into that agreement. And now Portugal's World Cup captain has been left off that country's national team for the next two games of the club wouldn't say if the absence was related to the investigation. Now, Renaldo deny the allegations in his Instagram, live post after thirties, announce they were reopening the case. Fake fake news. You want to promote by my name. It's normal. They want. They wanna be famous to say my name. All right. So that's his response. I think the biggest question we have, we talked about it this morning are meeting, why wasn't this bigger straight talking about the biggest athlete in the world during the metoo generation and the movement? Why was this story that was around for a while? Not bigger? Well, if you look at the time lines, it was a little before the movement really took hold in terms of what we're talking about from a timeline standpoint. If somebody sent this to me and other journalists by two weeks about a week ago and said, yo, have you seen this? Although stuff? And I said, this is an old story because I remember when this was first reported on, but because of the way we've moved as a nation. This is looked at differently now in terms of how affected his reputation. Now, number one thing is, I'll tell you this if you're addressing alligators like this, do not talk on a camera in your non mother tongue. You sound not smart, and you sound like you're not taking it very seriously. Learn out. Fake news. There is just a very bad look. But you see Nike's getting involved. E sports is getting involved as well in terms of what this looks like. And this is a tough scrub in terms of his image. When PR standpoint. Away from a lot of things forget about the specifics of the case. And I mean that in context of over talking about not in terms of its importance, this is going to be very difficult thing for him to deal with because he is everywhere. And if this does not go well for him, you know, so to speak from an image standpoint. In the next six months, it's going to be very hard fall for a guy was not only one of the greatest players of all time, but also one of the most visible people on earth. Both Nike NEA sports saying they're monitoring the situation. It's also interesting. They're not getting a lot of backlash from this despite the superstardom of Renaldo. That's right. There's a lot of dark clouds here for an, although I agreed that glib nature of that Instagram post did not help him Nike saying these are very disturbing allegations are very bad. They are disturbing allegations. The lawsuit that the woman filed in Nevada actually has an allegation that there were fixers high paid fixers that Renaldo head that actually intimidated and coerced her to keep this quiet over the last seven eight, nine years. That's very, very serious. You'd be makes Gatien's at the police time told her this would be very difficult. Case to pursue that they said your word against his. He's a big star words affect that. She says, dissuaded her from pursuing this further as a criminal case. At the time we have to remember Rinaldo is innocent until proven guilty. We have to remember this does go back nine years. This would be difficult to prove it for, but but here's the thing we live in a different time. We know that they're events going on outside of sports where people are being accused of things and people who support those people are taken to task. One thing that surprises me and all this, you know, you've got these allegations out there and, and these companies are saying we're monitoring it has home club is supporting him. Are you surprised that more people aren't saying that's not enough? I don't know. You know what we should expect at this point with Rinaldo I think you know, because there was the initial release of these documents is Clinton said more than a year ago. It hasn't hit as a title. Wait, wait, might have. Otherwise, it's been. So there was a year ago. There was the first story surfacing. The difference now is that Katherine may orga who accuses Rinaldo of rape. She's now out talking about it, which was not the case when the documents I came out from just say there's been a lot of heat on what I'll just call soccer Twitter for not being all over this the way that they could have been listening. I don't think it's fair to single out specific sports media because they weren't as on this as many people. There are plenty cases that is just across plenty sports for a lot of different athletes. The fact that it's being discussed about now is a start to something. Let's not spend this time. Blaming people who've been trying to report on things for a long time and simply missed. One thing that actually happens to be very big. You had to put a clarification on all of this. This happened back in two thousand and one of the questions out there. Well, why is this a case police are looking into she actually reported this to police back in two thousand nine and they are reopening the actual news on did not name him did not name Renaldo. That's important and didn't even say where the location was where the incident occurred. Well, but she did go and get some medical attention. So there is a rape kit. And so there is some evidence that the police that have now in Las Vegas reopened. The case can go back and look at a lot of states changing their laws when it comes to statute of limitations on sexual assault. All right. Well, we're going to be keeping our on that story up. Next are under reported stories, and our villains stunning revelations on NCAA basketball and champion runs on his own time, like this guy champion of nothing. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom. My first experience with jewel. I do remember being like this, it's good. It's it's, it's like a cigarette, but not. I don't miss smoking at all.

Slash sports warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. Outside the lines is brought to you by Geico. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. All right. Welcome back to the Friday. Four. Let's talk under reported stories as we all eat off with the college basketball corruption scandal trial that's going underway that's underway in New York. Now, this is really shocking. We when this story came out about a year ago, the scandal broke a bunch of guys rested in relation to recruiting violations, but it was a federal crime. Now, the case is going on in federal court in New York, and the revelations coming from this about recruiting in the NCAA are just stunning Brian bow and senior testifying about his sons recruiting process. His son was the one who sort of led them to Louisville and kind of broke open this case for the feds leads Rick Pitino firing, eventually, although you can debate whether or not that's belated or not. He talked about how his son got offers from multiple colleges, going upwards of one hundred thousand dollars or more implicating Arizona. OSU Creighton, Texas. Of course, they've denied some of the allegations made. But this is laying bare everything that's wrong in recruiting in college basketball, and it is flying under the radar by the way, not there, Mark, Emmett. Now, I don't know. Maybe his lawyers, other people are there, but that is also being noticed as why is he not in that? You're right. This is a huge story and it's not being covered the extent that perhaps it should be, but stunning is one of the ways we could describe it shocking his not. That's right. It putting it. None of it is shot. All right, Don. My reported story is major league baseball, attendance down four percent this year, but even you take a wider view and in the last ten years, it's down ten million fans a year. There's plenty of seats available. The optics are bad. Somebody noted last night at Dodger Stadium. There were some empty seats for game one which makes absolutely no sense. The excuses major league baseball gives bad weather. There were more horrendous teams this year. Those are excuses. This is an issue that major league baseball has to wrestle with Twi. We've all these crazy ideas to speed up the pace of the game to appeal to millennials, but it's a problem that is not going away and worsening for major league baseball. And this is a sport in which the attendance really matter in a way that doesn't matter football in a TV sport, like the playoffs or your Speth, the seats to be full when the games actually matter. You're not just going to the hundred six games long. Yeah, Flynn young woman making history Haley Degan fun seventeen year old driver on the NASCAR Canaan series. She wanna rates. This race is not yet aired. So if you get a chance to watch this ears. I'm not gonna tell you what happened at the end. We'll tell you what. Passes in the last laugh. Haley actual personality on the NASCAR circuit. This is why this morning. All right. All right. People just looking at the cars, people are just looking at, you know, the sponsors very rarely do we get people. And now the deals not really there the way that it used to be. You got an actual person. NASCAR don't mess this up. Got a star on your hands. Promotion promotion. Talked about this with Mike trout. I know it doesn't have personality but still get the stars out there. Right. All right. Let's talk villain. Sarwar skipping you on this one. That doesn't look upset. All right Clinton, you take issue with the Yankees. How dare you? Let me tell you fan really does a situation that we also unfold on Twitter on Instagram yesterday, where during. Not anyone under ninety. Sam on guy throws a look at this throws a beer in the Cup on that dude. Let me explain something to you, right? If somebody does this to me, we aren't going to the club after as these two. Another person might be using hero. Let me explain something. This is not. Okay. Forget about what my reaction would be. Do not throw beer or anything at anybody at a ballpark. This is embarrassing. I realized that they made it up and they went out together. But the initial point here that is totally unacceptable on every single down. You wouldn't want to get beers dumped on their head. Let me tell you something. I'm Philly guy. Don't try that in Philly shell. Janki fans don't have to worry about that. Of course. Look at the, I love the reaction to look at the your stick. Compr-. You're okay with this just saying. Loneliest I feel that would be your reaction of beer was a slow turn. Like what exactly what's. Oh, boy, anyway. All right, Jeremy. Jump back in the circle might. So kyri Irving, of course, famously more than a year ago insisting that the earth is flat despite all evidence to the contrary this week, however. He kind of revised his sentiments on the subject. Let's take a look where he had to set the time just didn't realize the effect. I was definitely at that time, beacons beers and tell me anything. I'm sorry about all that science teachers, everybody coming up to me like, no, I got to reteach my whole curriculum softened college is. All right. See, this is why he's my villain. I mean, if you're going to stake out that Terret era go, okay, and you're gonna make it into a big deal, and you're going to refuse to back down for as long as he refused to back down, then you don't apologize. Now you taking that position. You have to be willing to die on that flatter hill. And he wasn't taking this to the end of the earth. Anyone much closer. It's flat. It just to me, it reminded me of the famous words of John Wayne in the nineteen nine was she wore yellow ribbon in which he said, never say, you're sorry. It's a sign of weakness while and to me, that's your loss of wasn't really assign a week this, but I wanted to quote John Wayne and he didn't even sound sincere either. Donka. Right. Didn't actually say that he doesn't believe Ari is not flagging. She didn't. Out there that is along the lines of the earth being flat is the wrong stance. I don't care how close or far away you are, right? If you're anywhere near that can't be on any team of mine. Okay. So rear serving. I can't have somebody like that. Who's even entertaining that notion being on the impact on the team? Apparently, are you afraid that everybody else will think. Think. That's what I'm afraid of your the point guard on. All right. Okay. It's okay for Senate. All right. Let me give you. Let me give you my villain. If I may, it's the Charlotte Hornets. Okay. My tongue firmly and cheek here. I want you to take a look at something. So this Charlotte owns happens all the time and organization to handle this thing when it's everybody's birthday, look at what they did listed wife and girlfriend. Now you may be saying, okay, maybe it's a wife or girlfriend? Yeah, that's or maybe. And and how is that coming off to the people who got that Frank Kaminsky put that up thinking and when it's really or how do you know it's. Because they wouldn't just saying maybe some folks got blown up with Frank community. A little bit of commenting gone, probably stop. Yeah. He had other comments in the morning, not sharing. Okay. Don. A horse champion runs by villains or the trainers of super horse name Chautauqua. This is from Australia. This horse never seen it. You've got us. Out of the game. From an Adam Sandler movie.

Mighty talk was ready to head enough and eat million. Did he get zero and the trainers give up and just keep trying to run it will not better. Good. Type of my heroes of even dollar to talk should be a hero. But coming up, we got more heroes sportsmanship making a comeback when sports marketing goes right. Wow. Time to seaward side.

A great gentlemen, a great journalist. He was generous with everyone in when he when he gave you a little bit of time as often did you felt special and just sorry, seed, Dave go right as we all are. All right, Clinton, where your junior they put out and by major league baseball put out an ad for the postseason recently in which he discussed the fact that many players these days like to actually celebrate and have fun when they play, he put his voice to it. He put his face to it. Very cool at of him very. They said we are. Stop and stare. Thirty feet into the air. To do something you do not do baseball. No more talk. Let the kids play. Cool. Yeah, love it. Right. Dont my heroes are the cubs social media team. They moments after they lost the Rockies the other night they put out a tweet, congratulating the Rockies, wishing them the best of luck in the division league series, and the cubs fell really hard really fast at the best record.
