"Okay. Jeremy. So you found these stamps. They're clearly very gay What what's the deal like? Where do they come from? I've never heard of this Gay Kingdom what is it where is it and how can I move there? Are you messing with this? Jeremy is even a real thing. It's actually real and I've been working all day and night to find out more. I've called experts from the United Nations. The Council on Foreign Relations. I've made burner phones. My apartment's walls are covered and post it. Notes detailing epic story behind this kingdom yarn. Did you connect them John? It's GonNa ask the same thing. Yes it's required and after lots of law sleep. I think I finally have some answers. Hermit sexual people have honestly endeavoured everywhere to merge ourselves in the social life of surrounding communities and to be treated equally. This is an excerpt from the declaration of Independence of the gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the coral sea islands. A nation created for life liberty the pursuit of happiness. And all things gay well technically. It's a micro nation. So we'll micro nation is a place that declares that they are a nation but aren't recognized by other countries So it's basically someone walks out into their front yard and they're like my front yard is a nation In their mind they are their own country but they don't really have any recognition or any kind of Legitimacy in terms of the global stage this is Derrick Thomas.

I kid you not that definition had to be like at your wedding you would need to say the words marriage. According to law in Australia is the Union of a man and a woman. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard in so romantic really but Derek said it actually kind of backfired and drew a lot more attention from activists about gay marriage than ever before Australia including one group in two thousand and four a group of gay rights activists who were attending the Brisbane. Gay Pride Festival Were frustrated with two thousand four marriage amendment act in Australia. They got on a boat.

"Here's Jeremy SCHAAP. We're joined by a two time superbowl champion. It also one of the Great Kansas City chiefs of all time is Kansas City. Goes to the Super Bowl for the first time in half a century is a pleasure to be joined by the six time pro bowler the first team all pro from one thousand nine hundred ninety three the Great Defensive Lineman Neil Smith Neil. Thank you for being with us. Thank you for having me appreciate it. You know what does it mean to you that the chiefs finally are going back to the super bowl something. They did not do in your nine seasons in Kansas City. Not that I'm blaming you. Well I'm just decided for those guys They finally broke that that That little Jinks we have for so many years you know playing in the AFC championship games and not having to get over the Hump and I think that goes Andy. Reid done a wonderful job with the coaches that he have have and also the great players that he have put together a great team to represent the AFC this year in the Kansas City chiefs. Neil you're there as I said for nine nine seasons eighty-eight through ninety six. You had so many good teams. You went to the playoffs six years in a row five out of six years winning at least ten games aged thirteen and three team. Marty Schottenheimer was a great coach yet. Joe Montana for a couple of years and Marcus Allen you had Christina Koi before that you had. Of course you're late great not made on Defense Derrick Thomas but as you said you guys never got over the Hump. Eventually you would win two super bowls in Denver after leaving Kansas City. But what was it like not getting to the pinnacle When you had so much talent in Kansas City yes we did you know? I think that Call Peterson when he came along with shouting Howard Beck in the nineties. They was on a mission to Change Kansas City forever. And what a great job they've done in both of those guys You know putting together Some teams in the nineties changing the Kansas City chiefs. From a losing franchise to franchise. Now you know fifty years it was later Winning excuse me represented They have see but I think that you know we had. We had everything taken out. We just we just didn't have enough enough at the end of this. Push it over the Hump So many close games and SC chips games one of the Games. We lost thirteen to three. I believe we played the colts and we lost The the score was like twelve to nine. I think we missed like three or fulfill goals. Right Jim Harbaugh was playing quarterback. Yes what I wanted. One of the coldest games I ever played in my life in Kansas City. But it was just that I mean it was just that thing you know. We'll get the buffalo and we'd be the buffalo bills that early that you're playing him again in the AFC championship. But nobody wants to go to buffalo in plays in in In late January. And and I tell you they. They had a excellent team. They had a better team than we did. And they beat us in and they went on to not winter so we bought would actually represent Four years in a row. That was a tough team name and everybody knows that was trying to catch up with the buffalo bills and then you know of course around the time when I was playing with the we just didn't have enough to just to get those guys arguably the greatest team that never wanted to super bowl. Those bills teams that went to four consecutive. We're speaking with Neil Smith six time pro bowl defensive lineman for the Kansas City chiefs. He was first team all pro nineteen ninety-three he had one hundred four point five sacks in his career. He was playing alongside for much at that time. Derrick Thomas one of the great linebackers rush edge rushers in the history of the game as well Derek died at the age of thirty three. He happened to die in Miami. After a car crash. That had taken place Earlier about ten days earlier as I recall in Missouri three on his way to fly to a game you were so close with Derek This would be a moment which he would be celebrated as one of the icons in franchise history as well when you think about Derek. What what kind of a player? He was kind of a man he was what immediately it comes to mind. Well we'll meet come to mind to me is that I don't think they're Thomas knew how great he was And you know the debt of Very Thomas this is one of the hardest death ever taken in my life. I lost a father about five years ago and I never had that feeling lost in their Thomas as a team your brother and as a as a person I would say that one of the most uplifting persons in the world and I say that you know on on the week of of Colder Granddad. What these type of players are these type of athletes mean community into? You know to the world. I understand that Kobe Kobe. Kobe was global guy. I looked at Derrick. Thomas Life then short even shorter than Kobe's that there is one of those guys that Who Look he was looking for that type of destiny that You know have to. You know that Kobe Brian had and what these people mean to to to to to the sports in itself Um he met he meant to Kansas City. What the NFL? You know that you know that they're did. He does some of the some of the things that I think. That was mind boggling. It was a great player. That definitely changed the game that can take it to another level And if he wanted to play if he really wanted to not be stuff. You could accused that guy and for that. I said L. every narrative. Daddy hit. I see the wind. You know he didn't practice away he play but you show play when he wanted when he wanted to He was definitely not a practice player. But what a fun loving guy and you know. It's not a day that goes by Even if I look at the clock see fifty eight There's not a day go by Thinking about Derek and what he meant to me and and how he came in and how how short his life was. It's been over twenty years the data at the Derrick Thomas this year It just SUPPO- funded that. It's almost been about that long since I came to Miami and Barry Derek and this week means Something special to me. Because I'm going to go back to the graveside for the first time and just happened that the chiefs is here is going to be just touching to me because I know so she forwarded to overload. They do with that Mitt. What that would admit to derrick Thomas? Because he you know we we put it on. We left it out there and and and borne or by God. We just fell so short so many times that you know that here. It is in Miami. That is hoping that this might be the bread that he's he ever no that we needed There's GonNa be a great game this week. We're speaking with Neil Smith the great Defensive Lineman for the Kansas City chiefs in the nineteen eighties nineties nineties. Who had win two super bowls with Denver broncos is Super Bowl thirty two and SU thirty three? Were speaking about his former teammate. The late Great Great Derrick Thomas who died twenty years ago this month after a car crash in Missouri I gotta be Neil Win. When I heard the news about Kobe Brian on Sunday I thought about thought about Derrick Thomas in I was covering that story when it happened twenty years ago and I thought also about another great defensive player from that Era Reggie White who died very young not not in a vehicle accident like Kobe? Bryant and Derrick Thomas But but very young too young And I've been thinking about what it must mean to the chiefs to be in Miami. Were Derek was from and for you. We're going to speak be be speaking Christian Acquai- as well. When are you going to go visit? Derek's gravesite well. I'm looking at here in the next few days I just got me on today. We're speaking on Wednesday. Yes and I'm looking to go here Here in the next few days and you know It's this disguises He he never wanNA leave me so I'm back now. I'm back where to be always thought that I would always return has been a candidate achieves and it was my intention to and it just just a Tommy was that you know they was not ready to accept me back. You know as a player but I live still in the Kansas City area and also so I actually took over. Derrick Thomas Foundation the third lung foundation where distance Derek Baby Boring. I mean his. He loves about the reader program for his kids and doing all the impact in the Kansas City area and when I took over there foundation I knew I had to give up my foundation Asian to do something for a friend that I know that meant so much time. So we're still there in the area. We're still trying to and will help every kid that that we can in this reading program and to excel and it's so good it's twenty years later. We got kids dentist program where they come back and they lawyers doctors I and and it makes you seem that while this vision. This is what he wants out for friend to give something back. This is what I gave back to Derek and this is what I will continue to get back to their as long as I live great testament to his vision and his passion speaking with Neil Smith. Neil this this chiefs team which has been so impressive oppressive last couple of years with young Patrick Mahomes at quarterback The things that he's doing just just astounding What did you like watching this team society? You know football change. You know For the best I think You know with with with the not too hard. Hey I mean the hitting the you know the head across the boundary and and and and you could see the athletes come out of guys even more The way they try to protect you know you guys getting hits and it's Kinda different for me because you know I was never taught that way. Now I just don't understand it but I'm not the only one that played in the newer allowed to I heard quarterbacks you know exactly I mean you know. We was always seeking to find and destroy but I you know. I think I could've learned if I could've learned to tackle who also with my shoulder I dated but I you know when I was on my way out they was trying to make a statement and that randy how fast because When they started to change the rules news? That's when I was on my way I I just didn't understand what they were saying. I didn't understand what I was doing. as far as you know make attack with doing it forever. I was getting personal fouls I was getting fine enough and I was like okay. I think it's time for you to get out because I am not doing what I'm doing and that's more than twenty years ago. I don't think of. It is changing the late nineties. The way you're talking about it but it was even then. Yeah I actually played up to two thousand and so they were trying to change it was it was it was making the effort to change The game so and and I knew then that you know I can see where it was going but but it's still fun still fun to watch I just don't like all the scoring. I just don't like all the penalties against the defense. The Guy can actually do anything but and you know what there's it's still it's still. It's still one of the funnest game to watch on Sunday.

"Either off missile with L be they have to really good tackles guys that are that one of working out with Denver right now another one is going into junior year, and he gave them some problems early on their quarterback wasn't as mobile UNLV's. He probably would have three or four sacks that game. He's a guy that can get out get to the. Quarterback and create havoc as well. Get out and run with tight ends. If that happened as well, I really like to stay in the sleeper pick going forward. I did too. I don't I don't know what he's going to be. I don't know what you know, what role is gonna play with the raiders, obviously, he's gonna be a guy that's gonna try to get out to the quarterback you mentioned special teams and something that he could do. But what I like about this pick is the fact that this dude was willing to change from a wide receiver. It's a a D N A Y receiver to a D N not a wide receiver to a defensive back. But a D N that's impressive to me. That's one of those situations where hey I want to get on the field. I wanna play I know somewhere I belong, and I'm gonna figure it out and have the the hunger and the the want to to get better and be that guy. So for him to be able to make that change. That's what I get excited about. Because then I know that he's a coach, dude. He's a guy that Gruden Mayock. Gunther can go to say, hey Quinn. This is what we need from you. Hey, this is how we need you to do this. This is the kind of Ben we need to see from you. And he's going to go and work on that and work on that. And. Not just when everybody's watching. He's going to do that before practice after practice off to the side. I mean, he's going to be that guy that again gets there first and leaves last that's the kind of player that I get excited about because and I'll root for them. Again. Don't know what he's going to be not saying even gonna make the team. He's got to go out and earn that in trying to Kip. I mean, look is sounds good. What we're talking about these players on paper looks great all their all their highlight. Sound good? But now they gotta go executed during training camp to assure that they have a spot on this roster. But he's a guy that I'll be pulling for because I know he's got that in them. He's got that burning. His belly to continue to fight and fight and fight and earn his spot. Nothing's going to be given to him. And he's not asking for anything give it to him. Even though he's been around the NFL how to father played in the NFL had played for the raiders. I So. mean, so. I am. I bet Arkell. Yes. So he's not one of those guys that thinks, hey, this is this needs to be passed onto me. No. You gotta go out there and make your own name for yourself young, man. And that's what I'll be rooting for. I would like to see him in barrel, really become close, friends and work with each other. So I think that could be dynamic duo, and you have Crosby out actually like to see Bill moved to the outside of outside backer in a rush backer. You know, us a lot a lot of ways that Derrick Thomas was used with Kansas City right back in the day recipes, you know, where your your wrist and peace sad story would him phenomenal football player human being across the board.

We've all done things that we're not proud of in it, just so happens. I was a seventh round draft pick. Can you imagine that came out two weeks before the draft? And we have so humid has now they will say we're shedding he'd drive speed number down the interstate. So I can't beat him up too bad skip just hopefully he learned the lesson realize that your bone -able bad thing can happen. The one difference between your situation and this one you were on the interstate. He was on what I call surface, streets or neighborhoods. Yes. Right. One hundred who scary that's fast, and he blew right by the policemen. And the really the reason why he got in behind him because there was on the lookout for Bank robbery suspect as they fought somebody's go right there. Well, maybe going on. Oh, he's you. He was going hundred in a forty five you're going hundred eight seventy or at a time, maybe sixty five k sixty five so in by the way, his ticket was only three hundred sixteen dollars which doesn't seem like all that much compared to what I got to mild with over seven hundred.

If I told him, I had a brother in charge me more. They might have. So I'm with you. I'm not one to talk. I'm no angel issues before but I do agree. This is one of those moments of reflection where you sit back and say how many what what could have happened. I e prime example, his very teammate throws them a bunch of those passes. Yeah. He got him a motorcycle with no helmet on about that. Now in over the hood into the windshield. So when when you when you're young the skill I used to never until nineteen ninety nine I had never want to see Bill ain't gonna happen to me. Never Warsi Bill to a good friend of mine got into a traffic Derrick Thomas came paralyze. So now somebody that I know that I'm sure he thought the same way. I can't happen to me once they did. Okay. That could happen to me. Learn my lesson dangerous because isn't those fancy car? You don't realize how fast you're going. Sometimes. Yes. Yes. And you just take off. Now, you know.

"I actually think it shows a lot in the man when you can cry front of your peers that's harder to do than not to cry. It's really hard if he did cry. Who cares? That's an emotion that he showed in for him to come on defending lease myth like that. That's a good thing that shows that one he's told me too boss on the kind of kids as a little bit. So we stay cool. He did more catches off. Just the fact they're not winning when when you don't win the quarterback takes a lot of the blame. When you do. Well, they get too much credit. It happens. Who cares if one hundred percent of the teen cares for Derek Carr is long as Jon Gruden his Aaron dare cars a quarterback. They better care for them or you not going to beat her. So it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter at all Marcellus. I'm agree and disagree with your point about your tactic. And I say that this is going to be very that. People. Don't think I'm cracking a joke, but I'm actually just being very serious. I don't need to face because my performances spotless. And it has been since nineteen ninety s I came out of college. Check my resume go to Wikipedia, Google, whatever my performance weeks four. So dear car struggling he needs his teammates to lift him up. If I ever haven't that kind of struggle performance. Drove I would want you to publicly defend me. But as long as my performances mindless, we'll need to finish. My work speaks for. Dear cars are here throwing interceptions losing games. But I will I will say this football, and this sport. Right. That's what I love about the game. And you can't do you know, the thing I love about playing offense of line. You know, what the thing I love about that is five guys from different parts of the country from different economic backgrounds. Come together and become one unit and all five of us can be doing the wrong thing as long as all five are doing the wrong thing together, it's gonna work where he just going to work. But when two guys are going one way one to do one thing and two other guys are going the other way meant it is gonna fall apart. And so we are interconnected, and we depend on one another to do our jobs and right now, you know, what he's depending on the rest of that team to do their job and my coaching staff to do their job, and guess what? They failed him. All right. Well with car struggling in the raiders in a fire sale moat. There's been a lot of speculation that the quarterback could be the next guy shipped out of town yesterday. Jon Gruden was asked if there were more trades in the team's future and didn't exist. Slam the door on the idea. I don't see us making any more trades. Just make it a trade the other day. I really did. But sometimes like, I said, your plans change, whether you like it or not you don't know who's going to call you what they're going to say, you really don't. I don't see us making any more traits. But I'll never say never again to anybody today. I don't see us making anymore treat, certainly I don't see his trade quarterback. And so that's me gets me to the final point here. Not all the smoke around Derrick Thomas. I mean, a Derek Carr. That's coming from Jon Gruden. He's fan in the flames because he wants their car to be tradable. And so I I don't buy this. Well, unless someone makes an incredible offer we're not trading card. That's what I heard, and I think their car is on the trading block. And I think Jon Gruden and his little minions are the people that have poisoned the whale for him far more than any of his teammates talking about it..

Good kid takes a lot of hits runs around. But you always felt well this is the second here. Hey for what they're paying Garoppolo. He better be a first year guy. But I thought it was good tonight. Is a great double header though. I think sometimes I don't think it's going to be a great double header. I think it'd be to blowouts. I dunno. I just well, that's good. No, I think you buy point. Is you get to see the forty Niners play in Detroit. I wanna see that kid Donald play for the jets. And I think the raiders played at home. They were on the road. I'd agree with you, but planet home, I think at least at the outset they'll be a little noise. I think we both think the Rams are going to are gonna win obviously. But this is a lot of pressure on you know, money is money. I heard some guys say, well, there's no pressure on Grodin. He's already got the guaranteed money. Well, more power to you. You just traded the guy who had the greatest defensive individual effort. We may be have ever seen. Okay. If if that wasn't if what Khalil Mack did last night was not the greatest defensive game ever played by an NFL player. What is? All right. Derrick Thomas may be against Seattle. Sex or. Six. I'm trying to think of maybe maybe nine. How many sex Derrick Thomas have against Seattle when he just went off? It's either six or nine, but you know, where the games where we talk legends. It's in postseason play. So I don't know how much you remember like even the greatest Roger. Well, I'm just trying to think offhand when you when you raise defensive effort ever in the history of the NFL as as far as an individual today lost. And then the. Derrick Thomas, seven Rogers came back on them in the fourth quarter. So I think that maybe, you know, softens the the great the great. Play. What are you talking about? When you talk about the greatest play. Just ever played. They lost the game. He lived in the back Yuliana fumble recovery. He had a pass defense. He had a picture, right? Roger scored twenty one points. Great. It's a team game. It's a team. Oh, I think it's great defensive performances. How about half and half? What's better? You got one. That's better. I I'm just saying that when you lose the game, I think that disqualifies. Great as he did enough in that half to be you know that. If he died at halftime that would have been you. He would have staked his claim to the great guy. But they also took me incredible. Jerry who totally dominated his may also set out a lot of plays. He was on a play count. You know, what I mean, they tell you the guy who's really should be embarrassed from last night. It's Matt Nagy the offense the head coach of the Chicago Bears. First time head coach in the NFL. You're up twenty points in the third quarter. And at the end of the game. You're looking at a box score that saw you run it twenty seven times and throw it thirty five times you're up twenty in the third quarter at the very least you should that should have been reverse. She should have thirty five runs and twenty seven passes. But to have more. You know, you've got more passes than runs on a game that you led by twenty points in the third quarter, and you have Jordan Howard. I mean, come on run the ball run the ball, right Nagy got a little pass, happy and burned them in the bottom line to you. Don't eat up time on the clock. Hey, go. Go ahead, Richard. And vallejo. You say the forty Niners. Look good to you yesterday. You're on KABC. Yes. If it wasn't for the four turnovers they won that game. I'm excited about what they did. In terms of specially defense. They stopped the one with the best in the past. But on the other side of that is when you have four turnovers. You know, it no minus three on the turnover table ratio-wise. You're you know, you're not gonna do you can't turn it over four times. It'd be minus three on the day and beat anybody. And yet they were within a touchdown of beating a Super Bowl favorite in their place, Richard. What's the Rams tonight? Again, if if they're both if they play as well as Larry, and I think they're going to play then you're going to see there'll be a wide margin between what the Rams put out there in the forty Niners put out there. But nonetheless for a for a first game in Minnesota against an championship contender pretty darn good. Go ahead. Dave in Stockton. You're on. Hey, Gary, and Larry how you doing very good, sir. Hey, guys. Love listening to your show fortunate enough to be off work today. So I call in just a couple of quick things, Richard. You gotta be kidding me. If it wasn't for four turnovers. They won the game. Four turnovers. They would have beat Dallas back in the nineteen Ninety-two championship day going back. Second of all guys guess performance. I'd ever seen rod Martin in the Super Bowl. Yeah. Three three. Yeah. Three picks by a linebacker and twenty. I think that one Trump's Khalil Mack a little bit. Yeah. That's pretty good. That's pretty good defensive player. Didn't Chuck Howley win a defensive sue the Cowboys Super Bowl MVP? Yeah. But I I think so. Yeah. But that was in that game where Jim O'Brien kicked a field goals. Alz. Dave, very good knowledge. I take take off work more often and participate much respect for Larry in Gary. Thank you, sir. On these sports later much love, Gary and Larry on knbr six eighty the sports leader clear cleaner sharper. Doc. Execute.

"And he's able to come back but Greg you lose it to it every single day we. Talked about. The brewers all, season long there's been some sort of adversity some, guys getting injured some guys slumping whatever it might be how are they going to survive whatever's being thrown at them. And they have survived every single time it, is remarkable that they've been able to do that halfway through. The, month of August waiver wire is, open to the brewers make a move is. There, a needle moving move. To be made yeah I. They, they do and. I think they'll find, a bullpen pitcher before all of a sudden you know these these moves that are made in August are all about finding guys with bad contra Acts and taking on those bad, contracts, or at least working, out, a deal where you take on some of those bad contracts because the guys have to pass through waivers so basically every other team has to say I don't want this guy and his contract. And there's bad contracts out there they, get signed every offseason so whether it's a starting pitcher you're not gonna you're not, a blockbuster deal but don't forget, last year Neil Walker he was. The guy, who was acquired in August nobody wanted deal. Walker's contract and they were able to work. Out a deal so I would. Be very surprised if, there's not, a, move or two made, before this month comes to an end does Matt Harvey or Sonny gray represent a better option in. The brewers rotation than any of the guys who are currently in it does I don't think Matt Harvey does Sonny gray I, think absolutely does. I love to see Sonny gray with Derrick Thomas? And, they already, have a. Relationship because the Vanderbilt connection and I just think they're Johnson is so, good at helping, guys find and at their best self so the best we've seen from Sonny gray I absolutely believe could come back very quickly in Milwaukee the best. We've seen for Matt Harvey the best Matt, Harvey we ever saw New York clearly he, would help out but is he. Able to reclaim that this. Year I have a lot I, I don't I'd. Be surprised if we saw, that so I'm a I'd, be much. More intrigued by Sonny gray joining the team the. Matt Harvey will graze contract continues Harvey's expires I think gray is just more. Miscast in New York I think he's kind of a quiet guy saw spoken guy fit in well in Oakland they. Don't pack the seats there, the media's not breathing down your neck he goes to New York it's a total one eighty I? Just don't. Think he's comfortable there no I agree, I, agree one hundred. Percent. I think he's a perfect candidate for change of, scenery and for him to get into Milwaukee where he's, already comfortable with somebody on the coaching staff playing in front of a just a fantastic fan base. That's going to support him through everything, I Think if. Somehow some way and I don't know if he's cleared waivers. Or if you would clear waivers I think a. Lot of people would probably be maybe interested in him. As he it's not a horrible contract, things on right now. But if somehow someway they've found a way to get, Sonny gray I think that could be a real? Game changer for this team, some stuff. Man appreciate your time tonight brewers or. The day off, tomorrow they continue the road trip on, Friday night in Saint. Louis against the cardinals met will second if you. Down the road appreciate it man I getting particulate paulie..
