"NFL team formerly known as the Redskins is going to use the name Washington football team for the 2020 season Go football team go Thea Ultimate NPC team booth from ESPN. Effective immediately, Washington will call itself the Washington football team pending the adoption of a new name. This is not according to the story and you a final renaming and re branding for the team. This is the name it wants to use until the adoption of a new name. At some point it blows my mind that they weren't prepared for this that the Washington football organization that Dan Snyder in the ownership of that team was not fully prepared for the In a two least in my opinion, the inevitable name change that was going to happen. I mean, this has been going on for years and see somebody within the organization should have been able to figure out years ago that at some point Pressure is probably going to get to a point where we're gonna have to do a name change, or we might just want to do it anyway. You know, maybe when maybe as a as a as a rebranding, you know, Tio get people excited about the franchise again. So let's get a plan together. Let's come up with what name we want to use.

"dan snyder" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"When, he didn't have another name I, thought Dan Snyder's controlling. He's trying to prove a point. Hey Nfl I'm gonNA take my time. Hanging F. L.. I'M GONNA make it look strange. And I was very much. The media cynic, and then I thought to myself one thing that's missing in the media today and I think most people. This is what frustrates me about the media. Is that people jump to their initial conclusion. Don't do any homework and then add no context to it. They just throw gas on a fire. And I thought to myself. Dan Snyder has a resume that I should be skeptical about and he does. But I was thinking yesterday. Dan Snyder probably doesn't have a nickname yet, and here's why Seattle got a new hockey It's called the crack and people in Seattle don't like it. And they looked at twelve hundred nicknames. And people in Seattle still don't like, and they have an incredibly cool hype video and people in Seattle still think it's according nickname. They took multiple stabs. At the logo multiple dozen stabs logo. Seattle was awarded an NHL team in twenty eighteen. Twenty months later. Twenty months later. Twelve hundred different names. They went through this, is it? and. The city of Seattle was real hit missing it. Fifty percent percent didn't. The Washington Wizards decided the year was nineteen ninety-five. We don't Wanna be called the bullets anymore. I believe the reason was escalating violence and they didn't think the symbolism was good. Twenty months later. Eighteen to twenty months later. They finally unveiled the wizards. Could July thirteenth Washington announced. We're getting a new logo. Can we really expect on July twenty fourth? They have it and a nickname and I know what you're saying Colin Dan Snyder knew this would be changed. Noah, didn't. Dan Snyder said over my dead body. Will the logo ever be changed? We'll the name ever binging. He stubborn. We've seen it over and over again. And Stubborn People have an auxiliary. Plan, Stubborn, people don't have something else waiting. In case. Their plan doesn't work. He's a billionaire. He gets his way. He was stubborn. You'll never change it. So if on July thirteenth gets changed I. Think it's unfair to say on July twenty four. Why don't you have it where it is? Where is it? Seattle yesterday took thousands of names. Dozens of stabs in I thought the hype video was unbelievable. And people in Seattle like. I got Seattle friends are texting me I hate it I'm like videos great. They're like the videos. Great the names Corny, but that won't last for a year and I'm like it'll last. It's fine. And look at the time they spent with it. So, if you take out your political leanings and your belief on life I think it's unrealistic to think of football. Team In eleven days going to have it also up. It's a big city. It's a big issue. There's red tape. Bureaucracy folks in New York. It takes almost two years to get a divorce. I'm not joking. Look it up. It takes almost two years to get a divorce in New York. Stuff takes time. Lot of things to work through. So now my bigger issue with Washington Dan Snyder, I never see any leadership. They have a massive sexual harassment story a week ago. That came out. He hasn't spoken on it. I am in no way defending him as an owner. There's there's no correlation between rich and a great leader. A lot of people are great leaders and a lot of rich people are smart enough to hire great leaders. This organization has done poor with both. So Snyder to his bat, an owner as the NFL has but I think you have to be fair. As stubborn and his rigid as he can be. We gotTA. Give them a couple of months to get this right. How about how about six months? And by the way as an owner, he gets to sell this merchandise and the new stuff. And I. Think the I think the stuff they're gonNA. Use this year's actually. It's pretty cool. For now, pretty over now.

Is This The NFL's #MeToo Moment?
"Can you give us a sense of the build up to the publication of this report? So there's been a lot of drama swirling around the Washington football team, but suddenly started to get all of these dots that you could start connecting. There's a lot going on within the front office. That really doesn't add up firings in retirement in July in the NFL. Rarely happening tonight. We're! And we're too high level personnel executives who were abruptly fired and Alex Santos in Richard. Man were fire. No reason was given as to why they were fired. Then today, longtime radio announcer for the Washington football club Larry Michael announcing his retirement, he spent sixteen years with the team, the man who had been there the radio voice, he abruptly retired without any sort of official comment from the team, and he started to hear this buzz rumors flying about a potential bombshell report on Washington's football team and owner Dan Snyder. This is absolutely taken over social media with speculation running rampant then by Thursday afternoon. The Washington Post dropped the story. There fifteen women who went on the record, alleging widespread sexual harassment within the Washington football organization that spanned just about Daniel Snyder entire time that he is owned the team, so these were women who works across the organization in marketing and ticketing and finance in there were also two female reporters, one who formerly covered the team for the Washington Times and Rianne and Walker our colleague from the athletic, who also went on the record to accuse one of the men who had? had been fired of sexual harassment as well. It was the sprawling account as you mentioned fifteen women accusing sexual harassment in Washington. Can you summarize some of those accusations? Yes, so it was a lot of the very classic cases of sexual harassment things from making lewd comments about women's bodies about their breasts about their rear ends about the the clothes they were wearing to very overt sexual comments, propositioning requests to go on dates, just a lot of overall inappropriate workplace behavior. Behavior from superiors directed at female employees, and it did not seem to be a secret. Some of these women who went on the record with the Washington, post talked about how the other people who worked in the organization knew about it. They talked about it amongst themselves. There were places in the building where women were advised not to go. Specifically, there was a stairwell that had basically transparent stairs and women were told. Do not go there because there were men who. Who would stand underneath that and look up? Their female colleagues skirts all of these things that are blatantly inappropriate and wrong and workplace environment, but had been persisting for more than a decade, all fifteen of these women went on the record, but one of the few who allowed her name to be published is a woman named Emily applegate. What was her experience like working inside the Washington Organization? It was miserable it really most people know times a comment on my appearin. Screaming at you for something that you, it's not your fault. And then somebody makes a comment to you about what you're wearing and it just snowballs from there. she cried at work regularly, she felt belittled, imagined us being called stupid on a daily basis, and then also almost in the same breath being hit on for your appearance. It's a miserable work experience. Experience to the point where she no longer wanted to work there anymore and no longer even wanted to work in sports, and we should note that Emily applegate's former boss Mitch Gershman who was the team CEO at the time both denied and said he didn't recall conversations referenced by Applegate, telling The Washington Post quote I can't comment on something I can't remember. But Lindsay what actions has the team taken in response to these accusations from emily applegate, and the many other women, well many of the men who were accused in this story, all ready been fired, and we're kind of fired in the process of the Washington Post. Reporting this story, the team can say that has taken measures to address this because some of these accusations date back to the early to mid two thousands, so some of these people no longer actually work with the team and then some of the people. People that had new allegations have immediately been fired or left the team. They've started their own investigation. They hired an attorney Beth Wilkinson. The name might sound familiar over the last several years. Wilkinson took part in notable cases involving Hillary. Clinton Brett Cavenaugh and Michael Flynn and she told us we can confirm that our firm was retained by the team to do an independent review of the team's culture policies and allegations of workplace, misconduct and Daniel. Snyder and his wife sent an internal email to everybody who works organization to. To apologize for the culture, the statement saying in part, the behavior described in yesterday's Washington Post. Article has no place in our franchise or society. The story has strengthened my commitment to setting a new culture and standard for our team, but without specific apologies to any of the employees into these women, and there have also not been any public apologies to the two female reporters who were not team employees. The team has not publicly addressed them as well

15 women accuse former Redskins employees of harassment
"A bombshell report on Washington's NFL team. More than a dozen women who used to work there say they were sexually harassed and verbally abused. W T. Opie's Mike Murillo has the story. 15 former female employees tell The Washington Post that between 2006 and 2019 they were sexually harassed and verbally abused by team employees. And little was done about it, claiming some incidents were even Condoned by top executives. Some of the allegations were against Larry Michael, the voice of the Redskins, who was accused of making derogatory comments about women. He announced his retirement on Wednesday and didn't comment on the allegations. Alex Santos, the club's former director of pro personnel, was accused by six women and two reporters of making inappropriate comments about their bodies. Richard Man, the second former assistant director of pro personnel, was accused of sending inappropriate text to a staffer who says he told her to expect an inappropriate hug. Santos and man were fired this week. None of the employees filed formal complaints, according to the post. There are no accusations against team owner Dan Snyder. Former general manager Bruce Allen and the organisation says it takes issues of employee conduct seriously and has ordered an independent
After 87 years, Washington's NFL team changed in two months
"World turned upside down on its head with the announcement that the Redskins after what a century have decided to Finally change their name and Ah ah image and likeness and you know a lot lot into the store because still a lot of the decisions that have to be made. Let's head out to the wait for Dotcom hotline. We're joined by then. Fisher covers the NFL and Olympics for Sports business daily. You can follow Ben on Twitter at Ben Fisher s V. J. Ben will appreciate time and thanks for spending a few minutes with us here in Atlanta this evening. Have you be there? Anytime. So then let's talk a little bit about this decision. Do you think You know, part of the You know, whatever the internal review and things like that, that they had a pretty good idea that they were going to change the name. Do you think that they probably hired a firm? To already start to put the wheels in motion of coming up with new name, new image and things like that. Well, somewhat surprisingly, I don't believe they have That there's an obvious question the sort of thing you'd almost always bring in 1/3 party, um, agency or since consultants. But it appears by all accounts to be a very narrow circle there. Dan Snyder and a couple other people and not many others. Um, I guess makes a certain amount of sense because they know the more people you bring him more likely than a leak conceit. That's about but I'm not sure they actually have gone through a lot of those traditional steps. You would expect that of somebody doing a big rebranding. How much do you think if you just had to even kind of estimate? How many millions of dollars are we talking about from? I don't know. Hiring a marketing or PR firm to help with You know, with all of this, plus the actual creation of a name and logo and, you know, obviously will be merchandising and all that kind of stuff. What kind of money do you think A team gets into when when this kind of process takes place? What? Um I'd say all in and the big cost there, I think would really actually be the the lost merchandise and the things that you've already created, Or you like to be the Mari created there now useless. Um So I mean, I'd say 30 million. Mark is finished. I mean, that's a very uninformed guests. You know, I have to check a lot of things for that Sounds right time. You got your professional thieves, illegal fees. He spent a lot of time in court. Even if no one really fights trademarking, gotta go the European Union and get those trademarks and all sorts of things you and I probably would never consider And then you know you've got what do you think of all the products in this world business cards, Coffee, moans of sign anywhere that has a Redskins logo or a name. We gotta go be replaced in very short order. And the reason that 30 I mean, 30 may be high, but we're all going on the assumption that they want this happened very quickly. And just like constructing an office power if you need it done extra fast. You're paying overtime and your pain for things that you probably rather not. But That's the cost of expediency. Ben Fisher joining us here in the wait for dot com Hotline covers the NFL for sports business daily. Then talk to me a little bit about on. I don't know. I don't know if you know this. You know the process by which We know the league wants this to happen, and Roger Goodell has supported it. But what any idea what goes into league approval is if the owners in a certain percentage About the logo aboutthe name. You know, I mean, any idea about how that process works, at least get that step done and over with Uh, yeah, We don't need to approve it on and that's ah vote of owners. But other than that, it's it's actually it's not entirely clear, not on. There's not a detail procedure in public. And that is public knowledge on exactly how that happened. But the league certainly does have rights over this. You know each of these 32 teams the individual business for certain purposes, but The league knows they're going strong in its weakest member, and they don't want to be placed. One problematic became with another dude. Definitely I'd say so over that, But you know it's a bit of a black box exactly what they would be looking for, or what? Where the where the possible problems spots are on that son. You know, Ben, when the AH When Houston moved the Tennessee I believe it was Was it two years that they played with the Oilers marker or year year and 1/2 for something that they have the moniker before the seven? Okay, so they had them so they had the order. So my point is, is that it wasn't like the day that they moved to Tennessee, they become the Tennessee Titans. How long do you think this process plays out? And maybe compared from, you know, financial and just, you know, is there some comparison to how long it took with the Titans? Even though they knew that they were going to, you know, end up changing this. Can we kind of compare the situations about how long it may take for all of this to finally come to fruition? Well, I guess there's no reason you couldn't compare them because that is the last time a team change nicknames. Um, without you know, part of Ah, relocation or, you know you could talk about the ground Reagan's thing, Whether that was technically an expansion people, whatever but It was the last time you standing franchise without moving cities of changed his name, but it's so long ago. I mean that the scope of their websites but sort of your very basic, just digital properties that the Redskins will need to rename are so much bigger and I like being all that got so much more complicated, but that there is a good four compared to because that was a situation where The name change was part of a broader strategic vision and means that happened, But it wasn't necessarily important that it happened. By given bay. They were able to do things sort of under normal business. This is something now that it is completely different because there is a sense of urgency and we don't know exactly when they want to set up a new maid. But all indications are reporting is basically as soon as possible. And this is not something that you know, most business experts say wise to do. It's possible There's a 1,000,000 different things you get wrong. That re brandy. You want to make sure everything's perfectly buttoned up. So it probably doesn't take. You know, two years it took the Oilers to become the Titans, but it surely would be taking more than the two months that it would take. To put up totally rebranded team on the field in September. So my supposition that the season is going to be something of a neuron period in regard to the Washington football team name, and the more I think about it, the more I think that they might well play this year, just like known as the Washington football Club work. Burgundy and gold uniforms that simply don't have any luck. I'm not predicting that I'm saying that maybe the most likely explanation for them trying to do this this late in the summer. Amid everything else, the NFL is trying to say You're out with the pandemic, of course. Ben, talk to me a little
"dan snyder" Discussed on The Lead
"Stadium where the team played so far to franchise has declined to comment on Fedex's requests. Other sponsors like Nike or also being urged sever ties with the team last night, and you have Nike pulling merchandise off of their website, and the sources from monkey that I spoke to save. The team is not going to have any merchandise on their site until the team name is change. That's a lot of money to lose again a situation where there's a potential that there will be no NFL season. They can't stand to lose revenue when they're already losing it in other places. And, then you have Pepsico, another major company coming in and saying we've expressed that the team name needs to change, which as we Pepsi has a huge influence in the NFL. We think about the super, bowl commercials. This is the first Pepsi on the Moon. What. Okay fine. This might be the first Pepsi on Mars. Big those commercials are. That's just too much money. Lose if you WANNA. If you want to continue to be stubborn and the fact that matter is that. NO BILLIONAIRE WANTS TO LOSE MONEY THEY GET to the point because they find ways to make money right, will I think Dan Snyder has enough commonsense to see that. If these three companies in and of itself count for major portion of his revenue are saying. We think you need to change the team name. We want you to change the team name. Your merchandise will not be sponsored on our companies paid until this team is change, the writing is on the wall. They played to retire the team name and logo completion of review that coming out his statement today I Washington DC. Finally Reopen. The team won't announce a new name yet. Because of trademark considerations, what are the some of the names being considered? And do you have a favorite those? So, they have two or three names. That I have A. They will not tell us. Of course they won't tell us the name because this is all fun of the reveal and stuff like that, but some of the names that if you between the tea leaves, and from what we can derive from the statements that they put out they wanNA. Have some that honors the area they WanNa have something that honors the military. If you look at that particular statement than there's two or three days, you could say you look at. You've got a team like the red tails, which if you're familiar with obviously as a reference to tyskie airman? Warriors, but there were some concerns about it. Alluding to native Americans again which the team is trying to get away from then there is the red wolves who are a member of the navy. That's their association. In that something that they're an endangered species are native to the southeast part of the United States as well to fans of really really really rallied around that one in particular, because it would allow them to say things like Oh war from the cells with the sheep, but fans are actually engaged with this conversation. I will say that they're very engaged. It's a new coaching staff. It's a new era you to leave all the things that have happened in the twenty plus years prior to this with Dan. In the history books. Hopefully you can turn the page hopefully. We'll be able to turn the team around I'm not saying that for myself I'm saying in the Fan's perspective. Hopefully. These things good things for them. That's a lot of what I'm hearing from. Fans and people signed the building. Is that maybe this is? A rebirth? Made this new opportunity for them as an organization and yes, there is a lot of money to be made a lot of issues to no longer have to deal with moving forward simply because they're finally doing the right thing and changing the game.

Inside Washington's Name Change
"John How's it? Goin'? It's been a little bit busy. You might be having the busiest off season well, always busy right now to all the deck Prescott stuff, but but you pretty busy. It was on? July six and a couple of things happen. I told my wife said. I'm about to work in eighteen hours a day on July six. NFL. Opposite in what is going on, and it turns out. That was actually probably a pretty good day in hindsight. John covers the Washington DC based NFL TEAM FOR ESPN Since. We are talking about names I. Do feel it's necessary to point out your John Crime I- Amina climbs two different names not. Although I will say had some relatives. Years back did like genealogy, and at one point, it was kind real in Europe, so we could be related I. Just want to put that out there well. I do get mistaken for you. Know I think there's a similarity so. So back to the name at hand. John The Washington football team announced on Monday after much speculation many reports that they will be retiring their nickname and logo after completing review that began on July third. This has been a conversation for a very very long time, but the team's principal owner Daniel. Snyder has been on the record. Saying the team would never in all caps literally change its name, and then here we so before we get to why this happened. And what's GonNa Happen Next? I just want to ask you as a beat reporter. Did you ever think this day would come? Well. Let me let me step back from that pre. George Floyd, no, because in the past. We've had a deal with this topic many times over the years especially in the last seven. I think the rise of social media has kept it alive, but during that time the plan the strategy here for the reds for Washington was to write off the storm. Just weather the storm. Go go to reservations connect with native Americans and do something like that then when you saw the social unrest this year. You started to seep in your head like they're gonNA. Come after them again and I'll tell you when it really really thought they work to be about. Run at this time was. There was a stretch it about a week where George Preston Marshall, who original owner of the of Washington? And he named the team, and he moved the team from Boston, to Washington will statue was outside their old stadium are k. well. They removed the statue, not the team, but a company in DC that owns that land, so you tweet that out and I'd say. Say Ninety percent of the mentions after that on twitter, where about what about the what about the name? What about the name? The next day team says they're going to retire bobby? Mitchell's number only retired one of the number in their franchise history, so they tweet that out and I wrote a story. Put out there. What about the? What about the name? I've. There's just becoming way too much of everything. They did route this. If they put out a statement about George Floyd about black lives matter, it would always come back to their team name. It was to a level that I hadn't seen before. It does seem though at least from the outside that the true catalysts the thing that pushed this over the edge was the teams naming sponsor Fedex and Fedex asiyo. WHO's a minority owner coming out on the record against the name? Yes and I'm going to back up a couple of weeks before that because there some parallel timelines that led to I think this occurrence and one of which was Dan Snyder had reached out I was told by multiple that he had reached out to the League a few weeks before that, and had already started to engage in conversations with the NFL, Roger Goodell about a possible name change along that same time there's the group of eighty seven shareholders and investors were combined six hundred twenty billion dollars in the lead by investor advocacy groups, so they're the ones who targeted Fedex Habsi company Nike Bank of America. It wanders sponsors. If you don't sever your ties here, you know. That's what they want to sever their ties, and so that's what they're pushing. When Fed, ex came out with the statement. That's when when people I've talked to said. That's when they knew it was over. I WANNA to talk about those groups. All of the activists who've been working tirelessly on this for years, but I thought it might be helpful to break down why the name exists in the first place. Where does it come from? The name when it first. Started I guess or was mentioned throughout history was about refer to the color skin and there is. I've got her who worked for the Smithsonian magazine, went back and researched it and found that it was way that native Americans would refer to other to differentiate themselves from. Whites or blacks or whomever else was here, so they referred themselves the redskins than it seemed to segue into a negative connotation, which you know, you'd see posters or read about posters, offering rewards for bringing fifty dollars for bringing the scalp, redskin or bringing Redskin, in which meant the scalp, so it certainly segue into something. That was a negative connotation. So how did it come to be the name of this particular NFL franchise? That's a great question, so we go back to nineteen thirty two and for anybody listening I was not covering the team at that time so nineteen who? Shared a stadium with baseball's Boston braves, so they were called. The Boston braves the following year. They moved to Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox, so the story that that no his come about from that is that they wanted some sort of. Alliteration with the Red Sox, and so they went with the Redskins, but they also had a coach Lone Star Dietz and several native American players on the roster, George Preston Marshall said he was naming it basically in part because they had a native American coach. Now there's controversy over long star deeds whether he was actually native American up, but that was the given explanation at that time.

Would be able to come back and I mean I'm not saying that he doesn't WanNa come back, but four years is a long time to be away from the game I. Don't know how it thirty to come back and then away from the game for so long. Just listen to how they talk about Cam. Newton Cam Newton has been playing consistently for the last.

We WanNA use them to shape I married like capita slashing the League. Yes, touchdown, only four interceptions. We'll talk about the completion rate, but he completed rate even when it was going well, he led them to the super. Bowl what we saw what we've seen happen with Colin. Kaepernick is unprecedented. We've never seen a young quarterback. Take a team to the Super Bowl get released from a team in his prime and never get another opportunity to play. It is uncommon as unheard-of. unheard-of so obviously there's something else that was at play, but for years removed from it, the constant controversy and the polarization. It is associated with them. I don't believe he will get an opportunity to play in this league, even though he is still a better player than a lot of the backups that are in the League I. Just think it's easier for people to just. Move past and try and find somebody else how how `Bout Cam Newton in New England? What do you make of that? And it will he not be Star I? Don't see how if he's healthy. He wouldn't be the starter. Are we off base? Menu I absolutely love the move I love him going to New England. I'm love with Bill Belichick was able to do. Because obviously, he got him on the cheek right. He waited them out. You bargain shopping and he got him so now. What you have to highly motivated people you bill belichick with motivated to prove to the football world that he built the Patriots, and he would have success with without Tom Brady, and you can Newton who had to sit and watch chase Daniel. Daniel and Marcus Mariota and Blaine Gabbert and countless others get paid more than him. A former MVP who also made his seem to the wall I? Think you can get the best version of Cam.

He is cheating is Patriot way cheating. He's going to take on treating. I mean, but some people say if you eighteen you try. Chander.

"What's up, brother? What's up? About two favorite jobs doing. Good to have your man and. I want to jump in Chris Right away and just talk about what's going on in Washington DC with the potential name change of that franchise. What the sponsors did. What Nike did! What? What's your reaction to all of this and it looks like it's a done deal like this could happen even as soon as this season. I think what we're learning and everything is. Money talks and this situation since the Joyce story thing since we've seen like the protests and everything have seen like the power that people have athletes and seeing how corporations have the power to win that changed, and so the Western reds games really forced to make a change. This is something that's been a long time coming. It has been something that has been bandied about and talked about for years and years on in, but when Nike and Fedex and Pepsi and people who are contributing millions and millions of dollars to the organization when they when they begin to chime in, and they began, decide on the side of right. That's when you begin to see change, so it will be interesting and I think the thing that is. I mean I don't know I think it's so remarkable about the the the watching and deal is anyone who knows I'm from North Carolina, a lot of family in south. East DC man, day, ride or die. Yeah, THEIR SQUAD I!

Just, be interesting to see how it plays out with the the the name change, whatever because it didn't work out well and my opinion for the wizards when they change from the bullets. Yes, though is a little different because of the racial implications and things go along with it, but it's just in just take a while for us to get us to new name, but it's something that was long overdue. But one thing a lot of people wanna see as well with all these changes that are occurring. Is Colin Kaepernick back in the League now? Are you hearing anything that leads you to think he will be? You know besides all. That's out there in the public. Are you hearing anything from talking to people that lead you to think? He will or won't be in the league this season. Ticket over for Colin Kaepernick as a player I think a four year gap in between playing with all the other stuff that have come along with it like I. Just don't think He is going to ever play in the National Football League again. That's it I think he will go down With legendary status because what he did at a time you don't see many people sacrifice what he sacrificed. To take a stand, and I think he will be recognized and appreciated in the history channels much more than he would be in football, just because for whatever reason people couldn't get past what he.

You have what I get into these arguments with the few people that remember the bullets like I remember the bullets. I've always thought on these lists. That Elvin Hayes should be ahead of WES unseld. And I think you'd think the opposite which is fine And he is ahead of Wes. Unseld on the list. Elvin Hayes forty four and unsettled as fifty on this list. Do you know that Elvin Hayes and I didn't know this. A caller pointed this out or somebody tweeted it to me. Do you know that on the all time career scoring list for the NBA? That Elvin Hayes is still number ten ahead of him. Moses Malone Shaquille O'Neal Wilt Dirk Jordan. Kobe Lebron Karl Malone and Kareem all nine of those players ahead of him. They're all in the top nineteen on this list. Elvin Hayes is number forty four but let me take it a step. Further on the all time Rebounds List Career Rebounds List Elvin Hayes is still number four behind wilt Russell and Kareem ahead of Moses ahead of Dunkin ahead of Malone while I was shocked by that I knew that Elvin Hayes accumulated unbelievable numbers during the course of his career because he played a long time and my God he played like forty eight minutes a game like he never came out. He was a true ironman but he's the fourth leading rebounder of all time in the tenth score of all time might the criticism of Elvin Hayes. Is that number one. He was not a great teammate. He was definitely a sort of a self involved player but they other criticism which is totally fair. Of Elvin Hayes is that he didn't play his greatest. In the biggest of circumstances he wasn't very good in the seventy five finals against Golden State. Rick Perry completely outplayed him and the bullets. That's one of the biggest upsets in NBA history. They didn't win a game they got swept by the warriors. And Elvin Hayes wasn't very good in seventy eight when they won the title at Seattle in game seven a he didn't have the greatest of series B. Fouled out a game seven. He was on the bench. When the key moments in that game took place or twelve points out twelve points eight rebounds and fouled out of game seven in the postseason that year and so that is legitimate criticism of the big. By the way. You know In this game exists on Youtube he played a game against Makhdoom in the seventy five playoffs before they played the Celtics before they played the warriors and I think mcadoo had fifty. Hayes had forty eight in the game. They beat Buffalo in a seven game series. Beat them in seven. Actually you know. I've got the box score right here. Elvin Hayes in that game. Oh my fault. It was the next game mcadoo. Fifty Elvin Hayes had forty six in this one. But what a match up. That was Makato against as you know in a series yes but L. Elvin Hayes is a top three to five power forward of all time and no one ever talks about talks about him and no interest very gun and in. This list was based in part on numbers. And Elvin Hayes is fourth leading rebounder career all time and tenth leading score which is really blew me away. I mean I knew he had big time numbers. I didn't know that he was still that high up on the list Anyway that's that's all I got. What else you got on this? It's all I got okay.

I'm sorry but Magic Johnson's better than number five I get laughed at by my kids when I try to tell him. That Magic Johnson was a better player than Lebron. A Better winner than Lebron look. I'm I'm starting to understand the Lebron James Greatness. I don't like Lebron and I've never been a fan of lebrons There have been moments where I've been. You know awestruck you know I think about that first series back in Cleveland. When they played Golden State Nia Timothy Mazda van Iman Shumpert Shumpert Matt Della Dove on his team and in nearly beat the warriors in they won two games and he was just brilliant. And you know. I don't know that there aren't many examples of of a guy leaving team that was in the Eastern Conference finals and won sixty some games than the team go wins. Thirteen Games.

People don't want to include Wilt Chamberlain in the conversation because he did things that are so unbelievable. Basketball fans can't conceive of it. They can't conceive of a guy averaging fifty points a season you know. It's like an inconceivable thing for them so not just the Tommy. It's not just the fifty. It said he averaged over fifty and also simultaneously average near Twenty six rebounds a game yet while playing forty eight minutes right. You know so. He's he gets taken out the conversations because he was so astronomically. Good I mean like like like Like we'll say to Jordan once you know for you. They changed the game to help you for me.

I watched Kareem's entire career a great offensive player. The average eleven rebounds a game and he was seven foot three. That's almost criminal.

I don't think that Kareem had more than two seasons where he averaged more than four blocks well to be fair. I didn't start counting Recording blocked shots for a long time while true. I forget when they started it. I mean because they never recorded during Russell's career They just didn't record those statistics. Is You want average. My fault allies one average four point six blocks a game in eighty nine ninety averaged over four blocks a game four times in his career. That's a lot of blocks. Just so people understand no now. From rebounding standpoint allies one was at eleven point one first career to but you know a lot of those rebounding numbers that Russell and wilt had I think started to come down Tommy in part because shooting percentages started to go up. Am I right about that? Why were those rebounding numbers so outrageously high in the sixties? Well Yeah I mean that is part of it but You know it was. Also I mean because centers. I mean senators work played inside almost all the time. Then I mean that's why that's why they got so many. Yes shooting percentages Got Better as the years went on and that more the the les MIS shot rebound.

"Or charitable commitments. And he's done a lot of things I know. I've heard behind the scenes personable personal compassionate things that he's done behind the scenes. Okay but I call this the mob boss car wash. I mean this is this is like the mob boss who this is the corleones foundations. You know creating a hundred million dollars grant you know. Charitable grants you know. This is bob loss who builds a wing on his hospital. You know and it's like this is awesome of every hit. They've ever remind the car wash Galante in the name of so so I'll need. This has nothing to do with what we talk about in terms of dance. Night edition nothing. No one's calling into question then Snyder's commitment to community or charity. Let me tell you what I don't care about. And it doesn't mean that I can't you know appreciate and say. Hey that's really great. You know and it's better that he's you know a charitable person than not a charitable person. But but I'm a fan of the team. I don't care about that. It doesn't mean anything to me. You know all of that stuff when you haven't won a playoff game since two thousand and five doesn't mean anything it's nice. I mean from a human being standpoint. Great but I pay attention to the only reason he's a part of my life is because he owns my favorite football team and the only reason that they're my favorite football team is because at one point they were really really good and I want him to be good again. That's all I want. I don't give a shit about any of the other stuff. I just want them to be good. And I don't know that it can happen. But I do like Ron Rivera. Look bottom line is they could hired You know another stooge a coach that we didn't have any confidence in or no name that you know we probably would have felt right from the jump was going to get trampled Owner but you know the fact that Ron Rivera took this job and you know and seems to have some level of autonomy. I'm all on board with that for right now and I hope it turns around I do. I wouldn't bet on it but I'm hell of a lot more optimistic today than I was four months ago. Five months ago six months ago you bruce was still here much more I know let me just say USA. Today you've got somebody with your name on it writing some embarrassing material. I know you don't particularly maybe care about journalism much anymore but this is embarrassing have to I mean. It's it's a very short story here. I mean it's the title. The title of this story is is is probably the worst part of it. Yeah I mean it's not a long list of things you can praise Dan Snyder for At least football related there none no name one thing that you could praise them for from from football standpoint professional staff professionally. How could Gimme one area? GimMe one compliment. You know you don't want to fall back. He's like you mentioned. He really wants. No I disagree with that premise. If you really wanted to win a win and do what he does. He wouldn't have fired schottenheimer he wouldn't have taken the. Rg Three side against his head coach. That's not somebody who really wants to win. No but there is nothing. There's nothing that he can put out his resume to be proud of as as a football owner. Nothing I mean. He's a good salesman and in his role at selling his organization when he's desperately needed a player or coach. He has delivered a few times. He delivered with Gibbs he delivered with Shannahan You know even he messed it up and he he's I think he's delivered with Rivera. I that would be. I guess the one compliment. I would give him that you know when when he reaches these. You know low depths of of gist depression. With respect to the franchise. He's been able to pull a rabbit out of his hat. You know he then basically starves the rabbit am but he. He's able to pull a big time. Hire every once in a while out of the hat there you go. That's the one all right. Can we talk about this? Nba list? Which I started to talk about and got to a little bit yesterday on the show. The top seventy four on. Espn which you know. When I was going through it yesterday I said that you were going to be really incredibly upset about one ranking This is getting a lot of you know. Of course there's nothing else to talk about. This is getting a lot of run on social media among sports fans in NBA fans basketball fans in particular. And what's funny is it's like. I think they just did a list like this two or three years ago. But it's the top seventy four by the way because this is the seventy fourth season of the NBA But I went through it in more detail last night and I have additional thoughts that maybe I didn't share yesterday in the podcast and I wanna get to those and I know you didn't see this until just before the show so maybe you haven't had a time had time to go through it closely enough But the the here are essentially might Mike Cliffs notes on this number one is that Jaanus attended. Compo should not be number twenty seven on this list. It's a joke okay. He's accomplished nothing. He was absolutely embarrassed last year. By kawhi Leonard The Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference finals. Is he going to be one of the great players at some point down the road? That's possible and by the way he's an exceptional talent. I would never dispute that but he does not deserve to be in front of will. Let me. Just start with this. One will read. Who came in sixty? Let's off? He does not deserve to be in front of Isaiah. Thomas come on people you know. He doesn't deserve to be in front of John Stockton. Are you kidding me? This is a joke. The the Greek Freak should not pin number twenty seven on a list of seventy four greatest players of all time. It just shouldn't be Secondly and I'm not a fan personally of Isaiah Thomas but if somebody said is Isaiah Thomas you know a top fifty player of all time of course as I say at Thomas. Top twenty five player of all time. I would say well. Yeah of course. Is He a top twenty player. Yeah you're you're right. You're now you're in the neighborhood but yes probably somewhere around twenty or so. He's number thirty one on this list. You can hate Isaiah Thomas Personally. All you one. Isaiah Thomas is along with Alan Iverson. The two greatest small men in the history of the game. Since I've been watching Tommy Oprah hit me with no tiny archibald larger hardship on this list but but archibald is great read the League in scoring and assists. Yeah when he plays for the Celtics. Yeah he's not he did not make the top seventy four so I I have. I have a problem with Isaiah being there because I think is as a better than that and I think it's I think that's a big with Cou Leonard's at twenty five somebody might say well why do you feel that way about Yoenis and not feel that way about quite Leonard will because quite Leonard Spin a two-time finals? Mvp AND CO. I Leonard embarrassed the honest last year in Eastern Conference finals. So Quiet Leonard at twenty five. I don't have a problem with him being there right now. But he's moving up the list and by the way honest is going to move up the list. I I'm sure but he's going to figure out a way to win eventually. The next problem I have. And IT'S A it's a. It's a smaller issue but Charles Barkley at twenty three Their players ahead of him including Scottie. Pippen and I'm not GONNA rail and Scottie. Pippen here Scottie. Pippen Tommy in terms of the lot of a lot of the follow up to this was really criticized. There are a lot of people. Think Scottie Pippen just jumped on with Jordan Scottie. Pippen in terms of a combined. Offensive and defensive player is one of the great players in history the game when you combine offense and defense. He's had twenty one on this list. I don't know if I'd have that high. I do know that I'd have Charles Barkley in front of him it. Who who would you rather hat? Okay exactly.

"Dan Snyder. And how it's warranted. He said he's also deserving of praise. That might come his way during the teams rebuild and culture shift. That praise is coming. Yeah I mean I I wouldn't write that And I like some of these fan websites you know. I do because I think they are. Actually you know they're that they're plugged into the team but nothing gets by them in terms of what's going on and they're passionate and all this fan site some of them are good. Some of them aren't I I don't. I'm not familiar with this person. I just pulled up the story that you're referring to I don't know this person. Zachary Neil There's no real iheart at the FOTI person. I've no idea I can tell you this. There's no way in. Hell that you'd get me on radio to say that. Dan Snyder deserves some credit for the recent culture shift in Washington because first of all I don't know that there's been a culture shift. I'm I'm hopeful. I'm hopeful that there might be a culture shift. He talked about culture on the happy. You know the day of the happy Thanksgiving introductory press conference for Ron Rivera. I think he recognizes that the culture under Bruce Allen wasn't very good but the problem I've always had and the reason I'm not jumping head. I like some of you have which by the way some of you always do. And I I'll I'll be the first to admit that when they hired when they hired Mike Shanahan and even Bruce Allen in two thousand ten Tommy and I were doing the show together i. We're all lynn and I I was. I was lecturing people. If you recall in that first season that they wanted to see change so quickly and I said look if you can't handle it go antiquing with your white wife. Stop Watching football and we'll let you know when it's safe to come back in but but the real men are going to hang in there and watch this thing change and we. I was wrong. You know dead wrong I like Rivera. I think Ron Rivera is a really good higher for them. And I think he's a you know a leader in a respected guy but so is Mike and so is joe in so you know so is Marty and you know I i. I don't know that there's been a culture shift. I'm hopeful that there will be. But here's the problem. I've always had when I WANNA get more optimistic than I am. And that is the belief that I have that there is a a true personality flaw for the organization and for the owner and it is the. It's the combination of incredible arrogance and not having any idea what he's doing and because of that. I don't think he'll ever ever admit that it's been him that it's his fault. I think every step along the way you know it was spurrier's fault. It was Vinnie's fault because he hired zone it was it was high on Mike's Fault. They were terrible people. It was now finally To the realization. Oh my God. Bruce has been effing me here for the last several years. He's really screwed me. You know he brought this terrible coach back kept in a kept him for five and a half years it was bruce's fall and I just think that's a personality flaw and I also think you get to a certain age and when you're not self aware you're not all of the sudden gonNA become self aware and they if you haven't developed some level self-awareness especially when you have the money where you don't need that's right part of it. That's part of it now. You know somebody with that kind of ego has definitely been embarrassed here. You know he'd he doesn't think it's his fault. And that Hashtag Bruce Allin probably emboldened him in the feeling that it wasn't in that people weren't you know sort of you know they. They weren't they weren't going after him for the failure but he has to been embarrassed to look out into his seventy five thousand seat stadium and on occasion. See No more than fifteen or sixteen thousand people in the stands more than half of whom were rooting for the opponent. That had to really be a major major wakeup call. That's a little bit different from what we saw. In previous rock bottoms. You know not to mention and we've mentioned this before just the sinking television ratings but again the thing that always worries me is I think and believe that. He doesn't believe he's responsible for any of it. And I in that means that you know he'll be. He won't resist jumping back in if he feels like it isn't going well. I think one of the things you've said and I've sort of heard a little bit. Is that while? This isn't an ultimatum from him but that there is some sense that Rivera needs to prove pretty quickly that he's competent in that it's heading in the right direction. You know if they were to have a foreign twelve season this year. And he you know the fucks around with the quarterback situation and puts Kyle Alan in there and he stinks too. You know. Dwayne isn't any good. You know that could be problematic for him. The way the way to hold off Dan Snyder is to be very successful early. And then become very popular. I mean and and and Ron Rivera popularity. His straight you know if he if he turns this around quick he'll become like an a redskins icon just like that fans will love him and it will give him the power that he needs to fight. Dan Snyder if and when they have to over internal politics this is this article also pointed out what I call the mob boss car wash. It talked about how Snyder deserves credit for his public actions in response to the virus. How he move quickly to suspend travel for scouts how we opened up Fedex field to The Maryland government so they could use it for a testing site and also.

"Say if things look back from the outside. They're usually much much support behind. The scene was say for Urban Meyer. Basically who I I'm thinking is on the Redskins Payroll. I'm thinking he's not doing all this stuff for the redskins for free you know. So for Urban Meyer so to rip them and to basically exposed them not that they needed exposing but when you have an insider with with a level of credibility that urban Meyer had validating it. I think it really hits home and I even though it's tell us something we don't know it's when you have somebody with his credentials. Say it. I think it's another thing. Yeah I mean given the fact that there seems to be some sort of relationship between him and the team now. Scotland when Zaven Scott had urban Meyer on on their show last week. Scott ask them like you consultant. Are you getting and he said no? He said. But I've got players here and I and I. I've gotten to know Dan. Whatever so a lot of people's follow up on on what? I said yesterday was he's really referring to Bruce Allen and what the culture was which to which. I responded with okay. That's that's fine but that doesn't mean that it's not going to continue to be a hot mess. You know again if you force me to wager Ron. Rivera is going to have great success and turn the redskins around. Or you have to wager on the opposite. That Ron Rivera is gonNA fall by the wayside just like every other great coach came here. Mardi GIBBS SHANAHAN DID. I would wager on that. That it doesn't work out now doesn't mean that. I can't be optimistic for a half second like I was when when Shanahan got here like I was when Gibbs was here you know and and hoping that Snyder changes his ways But you know there's been a theme here people. The theme is the been terrible out. I mean this head years before Bruce. Out For God's sake the the theme is it hasn't worked for anybody under this owner period now. You can't debate that when people say well. Things are different now. I would say well. He's been on the job for four months. They're not playing football. I would hope things are different now. I mean how much screw it up. Can you do in a.

"But that's interesting that Dan Snyder made paid six. I think he's made it before I'm sure he has how can we make paid six? We'll be great if we made paid six wouldn't have anything to do with a ninety meter yacht. Nah. Wouldn't although it would be great to be on one. Yes. And be invited to one. All right. So. Breaking news sort of just over there looking for a sponsor. Yeah. I mean, I would think given that they want a new stadium, you know, opened up by twenty twenty seven at the latest. Right. That's when the the the lease you know, doesn't run out, but that's when they could get out of it, or whatever it is. And I'm sure companies are walking the gangplank lining up to be a sponsor for the Redskins new state. That's that's more interesting aspect to the stories just how marketable is a Redskins new stadium. Yeah. For advertisers. You know what's interesting for lotteries. Yes. For a lot of reasons it's interesting that the learners have still never sold the naming rights in. That's part what do you even get for naming rights, these days because I think I read something not that long ago that, basically the studies on stadium or arena naming rights essentially proved out that it wasn't that worthwhile. I never thought her name got. Reaction. I never I never on NBA because of that the prices for it came down significantly years. That's probably the case. And that'd be great, if it stayed that's park and wasn't named you know, seven eleven field or shake sack stadium or something like that was the, the ravens stadium was PSI net. Was that what it was that company was like, basically, a startup company company in the Dulles corridor, think and internet, you know, company, and they basically make went out of business before spending as much money as they did on the stadium really impacted their business a negative way. I think I could be wrong about that one in be thinking about another one. But some of those early naming rights deals were huge deals for the teams but I don't think they really penciled out for the advertiser for the title sponsor. I naming sponsor. I don't think they did. But I don't know. All right. What else do I nothing else? I got nothing else either back. Tomorrow will do some draft stuff going to have trying to couple people on the show to talk draft, Tommy will be back Thursday and I'll give you the players that I would love the wizards to consider in the players that I don't want the wizards to consider. And at that point, by the way, we may know for sure that they're picking it nine 'cause there's still a chance between now and Thursday that they could trade Bradley Beal to New Orleans and get the fourth overall pick in the draft. They're not trading Bradley. I would trade Bradley Beal for the right deal. And listen, if I if I was the new if I if I was a new GM, which they don't have I- trade, Bradley Beal, I think, but they're not trading may come down to what Ted Zach think there may maybe woods Zach things then they're not dealing. It's not an attractive job right now. It just isn't. It's a start over really. I think they should give jobs. Steve buck buckets, metoo absolutely the job to buck. Yeah. All right. Thank you. Tommy, thank you. Erin. Have a great day back tomorrow..
