"Welcome back to say we're coming to you. Live the heineken river deck at pier. Seventeen it's draft season in teams are making moves on friday started with the niners who traded their number twelve. Pick this year of i and with the Third round pick in two thousand twenty two and a first round pick and twenty three for the dolphins number three pig shortly later. The dolphins traded back up with the eagles acquiring the number six and number one hundred and fifty six picks for the number twelve pick number one twenty three and twenty twenty two first round. Pick a lot to digest there. A lot of numbers Take a moment. Hope that made sense. At least you have the full screen to look at max. Who's the big winner after these draft. Trains jets fans are the big winner after these after these trades. Because what all these trades mean is that miami couldn't get zack wilson. So they moved on so they traded down out of the three spot and got more stuff to build around who. I assume they liked. Because he's good. And i didn't watch a lot of that. Wilson college reminded me of of the four draught when all of a sudden towards the end of the year. I heard a lot about profitless. Perjure this big kid rothlisburger as we've started watching stuff after the fact he's good jack. Wilson's name pops up late and everyone's like he's going to go before field. What really before. Justin fields and i was defending field for a while but over the last couple of weeks. I've been watching a lot of zack. Wilson oh my god i see it i see it like you have to give it up at a certain point. This dude is allen did and when you look at the jets you know the type of thing. The jets would do throughout their history. No no we're going to stay with. Sam darnold yet. But what sam. Donald standard may wind up eventually to be a good quarterback can't rule that out early returns. Don't look so good. And he's going to be a great quarterback really. You're going to go with sam. Darnold going to build around him. You're gonna spend your wheels and probably waste jets fans times. No no clearly identified. Zack wilson as the guy and by the way guys they have more first round picks in the next couple you this year and next year if multiple third round picks and they could probably trade sam darnold britain lease the second. Just four i. What three seconds and three thirds to build around a quarterback was a real chance to be rate that has to make jets fans look good steven a. They clearly valued the difference between zack. Wilson and sam darnold the value data as every as beyond everything. Miami gave up to trade back because they obviously could have at least that the twelve th pick in the draft and multiple i. and that's the difference. The premium they put on. Zach wilson over. Sam darnold and i agree with them. I think jets fan should be happy to me. It's the forty niners and you know what because if you think about some of the things that happened last year after they go to the super bowl you let brockton getaway. Obviously obosa gets hurt. He's out he's down and out in. Your defense was compromised with some degree even over still an elite defense in the national football league. Jimmy garoppolo got hair. George kittle hurt. People samuel out a little bit earlier i forget. Which games did he missed. Or whatever but he certainly didn't play the whole season he's going to be bat. Okay jimmy garoppolo is going to be back. George kills going to be back. You've got this guy. Geoffrey wilson. You still got mostert. Has one of your running backs as well. Okay i'm looking at it from the standpoint that you secured the quarterback position because jimmy jimmy garoppolo aka porn star. Jimmy was not the most reliable do in the world you know. He was an injury waiting to happen. Which is the big indictment against them. And what did you do when jimmy garoppolo was gone. You struggled as you highlighted max in the lineup and healthy. He wins fall more games than he loses. Okay well guess what when he's not out. You didn't have anybody to replace him now. We're talking about whether it's zack wilson. Whether it's trae lance or somebody else you're going to get one of these guys aso. I'm looking at it from this perspective. You can talk about a quarterback you can talk about positioning yourselves to get a wide receiver. It does not matter the bottom line. Is you're going to upgrade either. You're going to get yourself a quarterback or mac ios. Because i like mac jones out of alabama a lot closer. I like him a lot. So i'm looking at it from that perspective. But i'm saying if you're talking about a forty to forty nine and you've got the number three pick in the nfl draft. You're talking about lance or wilson in all likelihood or even justin fields. Any way you slice it. You're you're you're you're buffering yourself at the position. You don't give up to future first round picks unless you in all likelihood looking for running a quarterback. That's what i think. The forty niners doing here. I think that it's the right thing to do. Because i think when you look at the rest of their squad. They've got a crew. It's just that at the quarterback swat. It wasn't reliable. Because you had a guy jimmy jean that just simply was not derby is becomes apparent to me here. Is that the jets. And the dolphins lezak wilson and say. That dude is different right. There's trevor lawrence just seems to me. And zack wilson in this draft as the ones that at least those two teams are thinking. Those guys for a cut above because miami reportedly was looking to trade up couldn't do it and then decided to trade down and look at how much they extracted just to go from three six. The fall the re slots you got all those picks. i mean. that's a whole lot and obviously the jets could have had that whole had. They traded out of. Zack wilson slot. The niners are the one team. That's thinking differently. Shanahan seems to be thinking differently because shanahan is looking maybe at mack jones. A lot of people think is the best comp is ryan right and if it is mack jones boy that's a lot to give up for a guy who most people think we'll go later on and you have jimmy g. as a mentor for a year. His my deal. I don't consider jets fans winners because they've got so many question marks and they've been allergic to win it for so long. I mean they have nowhere to go but up for robert sala we. I expected him. Oh do is expected. I think he's a damn good coach. And i expect them to do good things but still. It's a work in progress. As it pertains to the miami dolphins the fact that you found yourself involved in such a deal to me creates loss about two tunnel below. Now you may have ultimately reached the conclusion that he has a promising future. And we're going to trust him moving forward. But when i think about the miami dolphins they just seem to have more questions than answers at this particular moment in time even as it pertains to their quarterback and what i'm suspect like to all they're saying is other than zack. Wilson and trevor lawrence. We don't think any of these quarterbacks gives us a big premium over our guy right now they have the six pick build around miami whereas number three. So what i'm saying is if you re if you re if it was really about those guys right okay. Then why why move down. You obviously have more needs and you're willing to surround too but i'm just saying the question. You can't get wilson with the questions that we've asked about them. It just seems to me like safe example if they could have got back wilson by to though they couldn't i understand but i'm saying if they would have said by simpson. That doesn't say much. Look okay that's to me. We look at it totally different. You're saying of down on onto. I see them as being. Not we like our guy like the love. Don't love them. But i just but you just drew them the same way about him to just drafted him number. Six overall last year number five or six over orlando. So i'm like wait a minute now if you already saying. We like them but we don't necessarily love them. It seems to me if probably last year that can you should be in love with a top six. Pick at the quarterback position just drafted a year ago. You.
Is Zach Snyder's 'Justice League' a Good Movie?
"The very controversial for so many reasons for content reasons for formatting reasons i saw so many memes about the fact that it was reformatted. Four three zack zack. Snyder's justice league has officially dropped. We say dropped on the internet right. It's not like premiering a movie theater. It's just dropping on on. Streamers is fishy dropped on hbo. Max there's a complicated back story where zacks under had to leave mid production because of a family tragedy which is very sad judd app not try that patel just we took over just we apparently was a total asshole and there were all sorts of lawsuits. About what a dickey was and then you know. The film by many fans was not felt to reflects what zach snyder intended and there was long discussion of a zacks undercut image. Peo- max put in seventy million dollars to shoot a whole bunch more footage to make the zack snyder. Cut of justice league. Come out for years later. This is an interesting story because it is different. From a lot of directors cut stories. A lot of directors cut stories are ten years later. I'm grateful the studio give me access to the archive to rescan the negative and re-cut it is very rare in fact i can't think of an example where someone's like four years later. I got an extra seventy five million dollars to shoot additional footage to make an alternate movie like it is. Is there another example. That are missing where somebody got that. I don't know but what i do know. Is that in the history of film. There have been many many many directors cuts and extended editions and versions. That were revisited. We've talked about some of them here before. And most of our audience familiar with many of them It is not unheard of obviously for there to be something that prevents the original vision to be completed by the person who had it. And obviously there are many instances where somebody could go back and try and piece things together. Only orson welles. A number of times We even talked to. I talked to walter merch about going back in and recruiting and working on touch of evil. There are the magnificent emerson's with him as well. I think he's one of the early versions. Were early famous versions but bladerunner famously for anybody mir charles age And so much inbetween. It's such a common story but this one does stand apart because yeah he was given basically a massive feature film budget to make more of it his version of it and it is an interesting thing like will this happen more often. Will we get criminal. And saying actually i want to shoot a whole different ending too dark dark knight rises fifteen years later. Because i've rethought it. And i wanna go into a very complicated sort of relationship between the artists and the work when you remove the theatrical premiere and when you open up the idea of shooting original additional footage it is a it's vastly different so Full disclosure wasn't able to finish it have a two year olds. Get very sleepy very easily. Don't have four hours with two year. Old where i can watch the whole thing but universally in my social media of the people in my life everyone i know seems to have really enjoyed the new cup more than the last cut. I do not understand why people hate on sex neither so much. I genuinely enjoyed his dawn of the dead. I thought it was solid. I also am a like. I wanted to get into movies. Originally to make watchmen. When i was nice school. I don't hate his watchman. Cut like everyone else does. I don't understand whether so mad about it. I think people to hate sex. Neither for some reason that does not make sense to me. I'll also disclosed and then michelle. I know michelle is actually watched both right but so i have watched the new one. I watched the snyder cut. I did it. I made it through. Well di i not a big comic book movie fan. In general i have seen many of them though. And i did not see the original justice league so i had to do some research on what changed which was really interesting to me. I also actually really think highly of him from a visual standpoint. I find that even when he's not like a lot of the movies directed this one included. The material is just not great in my opinion but he's visually so committed to the bit that he does that his sequences really worked for me. And i think he's a great comic book movie director choice. Because i think he's really. His camera is like ballot. Check i think his action sequences are visually compelling. And i think his approach like to me the thing that felt the weakest about this. I mean obviously the some some major casting problems major script problems but all that aside i think it it mimicked. Some of what marvel does too much sometimes which i don't really like. They're some straight up. Like this is just an avenger. Seen but not as good. And i don't really love what it was in the first place personally but all my my personal take aside. I think filmmakers He is just he really doesn't. He's earnest he's not tongue in cheek and sometimes it gets a little silly and you might laugh. But i think his earnest approach to how dramatic he is with his camera like from dawn of the dead to the three hundred to a and tackling real quick charles before michelle I think that warner brothers is known to have some really tight released times. They don't have the same war chest that disney does for like they. They set these release dates. They they have to make them. I'm not going to get into the wise. And if sets really true but and that puts a lot of pressure on finishing something and delivering something. And i think that some of the the flaws in some of these dc comic book movies have to do with some of that some of us so anyway onto you. Michelle i f Well done on watching. The center is a endeavor. I i think i knew what the runtime was. But it doesn't click in my head until i was watching and the timeline at the bottom. It has like how long you've watched. And i miss read it. I thought it was much like when it said two and a half hours at the bottom. I thought that was a total Not they meant time that i had laughed and that was quite a surprise. So it's long. Don't don't kid yourself jack. Knifed mini series has parts could have been released in parts. My first input. If you will is i feel like i. Keep reading the quote snyder cut. That snyder wouldn't release in two thousand seventeen and i would argue that. I don't know this is i. Don't think this is at all what would have been released for so many reasons. It's a it's a post weeden post tragedy post. Hbo max snyder display. I don't think we would be able to release a for. I could be wrong. A four hour epic in a theater in twenty seventeen. I don't obviously say that. There are many teaser. There are changes are subtle there. Some people have pointed them out and in terms of very subtle and different. Like stolen changes. That i think are in there now. For example there's a billboard others billboard in the city at some point in the messages you're not alone and a lot of people have guessed that something that snyder put in in reference to his daughter. Like these little things that have been put in log away 'cause post years of reflection on it and i just don't think not content aside just the run time. I'm not sure how many people really yes for hours within a theatre. Let's do it. I don't know if we the same. i do. Think a really interesting experiment if anyone ever wants to ever play with this idea of same footage different story concept of how to edit something together. Because i started watching the josh sweden version the same evening. Don't do this same evening through off after watching case for a minute i thought you were. You said you meant side by side like you had to i. Four by three setup does allow you. I will say to have it on the side of my screen. As i was like doing some work so i will say the former three at least helpful in the arrangements of your browser window because like i'm not cutting anything off because it's not a letterbox or other format so the four by three is is is makes it easier to have the size. No i tried watching the conversion right. After some of the scenes giving away some of the scenes that feel pivotal in the story. Line are like thrown in the credits. The opening like oh i get with. This is going to do you. I don't know if i can sit through
Matt James Confronts Rachael Kirkconnell Over Racist Past
"Is the bachelor faceoff. We've been waiting anxiously for today. Daily tells rachel why they cannot be together and things got intense watch. Most disappointing thing for me was added to explain to you. Why what i saw was problematic in while assaults and so when i questioned our relationship it was on the context of you not fully understanding my blackness and what it means to be a black man in america and i just want what's best for you and i am sorry. This is the door even slightly open or relationship reconciliation. Don't go away overnight. You like this hurts. But then i asked myself like i don't want to be emotionally responsible for those two years. I didn't. i didn't sign up to have this conversation. And i knew that i had to take a step back for you to put in that work. And that's why we can't be relished. Oh it was so good. I stayed up all night. I watched everything became an ira but we saw was it was intense. You could tell for everyone involved except for emmanuel man. He came loaded. He knew the right questions to ask he was comfortable was not comfortable because he was in that suit he was not. There's no way he was comfortable. That button better call. It's union because that is not even mad at the suit or the turtlenecks or the button. It looks fine. I'm sorry but that job. It was distracted. I was looking at this price. It's the whole time as my stylist ashley. Said she was like. I would have cut off at least the sleeves on the turtleneck. Because you put a turtleneck underneath that already super dickie those all in one. Oh my gosh. But he did a great job. You know profit manual. I felt rachel also did a great job in explaining their feelings and a very difficult difficult Way to do it. They were very careful.
Kotlin Multiplatform with John OReilly
"Regarding a desktop and service. what did you start in. Like what technologies were using so simpson so as deputy so. I wanna finish college in one thousand. Nine hundred started with sort fulltime masters speech recognition. You're using your wall things back then. That was sort of. You can do that about sums watching the cotton. Dl talk yesterday. Where a couple of lines of code can do that. But this writing everything from scratch in c in terms of audio processing fifties and and i've been never confronted themselves and there was there was a need for something. Kinda graphical and i don development for awhile and answer. Windows three came out. I think you're on june nineteen ninety and i So cool your concern dusen. Windows graphical is from speech patterns. And mike you're next so forth down again more chance occurrences a low company was starting to do windows and said hey you know obviously not too many people doing that stage said hey. Join to join to join us so i saw that again. That's what started the decade of doing windows see transitioning cpas plus windows. St kfc com hiram. It's funny because obviously was been toying with a proposed for desktop right now sort of i don't know what you call it control back. Go throwbacks ecstasy. That's what's what's old is new again. So when when did you. When did you actually start with With developing kotlin than so. I'm trying to was the announcement. Okay oh in about five years ago now. Is it a country member. anyway there was a natural icon. I you know to be honest. I hadn't i know a lot of people being aware columnist stage. And we're very excited about it. I i was a little bit in the dark. It wasn't something new to me. I haven't even wear and to another coin spos- as in most companies. We probably weren't in a position to start using cotton straight away. You know And i have had. And i have an obligation to restore cocoa puffs. It's actually it's an aug project hasn't up hope people's find somewhat useful. That actually does but for me. Personally i use it i e kind of overloaded somewhat in terms of as a pop from try technology so when the under doctors coronas came up first of all Used to try goes out. And then went. Kalkin emerged start reggie microsoft katainen and similarly montecot from down the road and And then you know as is frequently. The case trying that out. There then became a platform. Say okay now in the workplace okay. This looks interesting. Let's start to use his here and then shortly after that. Then maybe down. The road asked announced. Maybe we start to use it working and we start to use a gradually in africa project and we ended up doing a for various reasons. We did a company rewrite of our project and we started from the ground up dan with cartoon or katelyn underdog extra bonus cortines and so forth. So so is this your first multiplatform project or not so does sage. i wasn't using work. Under gorbachev sort of had supposed to give you know a little bit more brought on their. You know like this. Be working on mobile for eleven years now and i guess over time like many of us you know we would have source accession cross platform. I guess there's always sort of cross pot from monty python but cross platforms kind of sounders. Right once so reproaches. The dab senator in reactnative approaches. And you know over the course of various projects in the previous companies in new product. Monday or somebody coming in that. Have read some headline. This allows you to do everything in one place all your code face. We don't need to have all these separate irish and each time you took sort of had to move. That weren't approved was an us. Disapprove that dickey. We're gonna do competitions. And we had to prove that this wasn't suitable for the type about. We were developing this platform. it's christians. We needed an end user experience. We need But i'm saying that is supposed as a segue to you know I guess what come interesting monte platform. Because when i when cosimo mantra was aware of it i think we're not to those nineteen towards the end of that. It's sort of immediately struck me as okay. This is a pragmatic saint approach finally to the sharing of code across multiple platforms mobile. I've been involved by the way sort of number of initiatives over the years for free. Willion superstars shared code into office. Which is at least somewhat more sane approach but. I don't know if you guys have worked with john. I had to work jay. You know unfortunately goldstone feel like. That's one of those topics that if you can you usually avoid it. I guess yeah if you can avoid using it as well as we various we had to use it in their practical use. And it's one thing using stateless knight ridder touch it can function as in which you maybe media engine i. I just wanted to say on the topic of jane. I think this is. This is going to become a bit more interesting again now. Also with With all the topics around compulsive for desktop because of a bunch of lake system integrations. I dunno things like global hot keys or stuff the. jvm just doesn't really expose. so i think some some of the people at the forefront. They're wanting to write libraries. Yeah they might might have to go that route anyway. Yeah you know if if you're using it. I robot michael state library that district district functions wanting using your compete shared logic with the framework with the training involved with life cycle aspects. Dot is a different story completely debugging crush reports of So haven't gone through. That in us was having seen the sort of attempts sort of pulling in pushing us towards cross. Platform frameworks cottam. Okafor's was immediately. You know the caught cartoon. The cartoon obviously was an advantage a positive from my perspective but more generally i think it was a sane approach it was targeting shared logic target. Had kind of a mechanism in place where you could sort of. This is critical. You could incrementally adopted you know you start putting in for some small area. And i think that generally by today's still is that you start doing that in you take some particular business. Logic may be may be remote. Api endpoint access or so forth and then graduated up from there. And you know there's another kind of a discussion point around how you socialize that how you get in particular iowa's developers interested in an accepting of the but it's the topic himself but certainly certainly from that perspective. At least i think it's very important. Start small and and as the key thing about the type forums. It appealed point was that it had that capability that it it was lended itself to that sort of adoption. Yes so so just to kind of to recap your point. You feel that the that the main difference between cartland multi platform and these other cross platform. Toolkits is is what exactly that you can adopt them. Incrementally that you that you stay away from From what part would you say is kind of the most interesting here. This quite a few different aspects. I think cutting across different areas You know on one hand.

"It begins with an Anton chekhov quote. it says I am in the condition of transplanted tree, which is hesitating whether to take root or begin to wither, and it looks like you took root page. So tell us a little bit sort of set the scene about this transition for us. Well. I. Think in the beginning and and certainly when when I didn't know whether I might with her it was it was very hard to leave. my old garden I'd been there for thirty four years. my husband join me for the last fourteen of and and it was. A place. Created over the years with just tremendous amount of love and passion and and to just walk away from that was was difficult But. After much searching and and lots of. Panic when we really couldn't find anything right away we decided to move to North Western Connecticut and we found a plot of land that took my breath away and. Because, it was full of fields and woods and wildland and a view. Of the Berkshire Hills and It started me on a new adventure and I think that's when. I realized I wasn't gonNA weather. We didn't have to irrigate. Don't worry. She's GonNa. Be. Okay. Oh how how did so so you had been at Duck Hill. For those thirty four years and so you came to start again in said, this piece of property was breathtaking. It took your breath away and. But How do you know where to begin because? Both of us, we were much younger gardeners much less experience crash when. When we began our where I still live around same time as when you went to kill and where in your your work at Duck Hill. So we were experimenting with different things We're at a different stage in our as I said in our experience. You know. Like what lessons? Where did you begin? How did you know what to do I when you got to this new place? Do you know what I mean like what what did you say? I've got to DOT DOT DOT? Yeah. Well, first of all, they were remnants. Of, a garden. As sort of cottage garden in the front of the House and and. And although it, it crossed my mind just wipe it all out I didn't and it was mostly just peonies and. So. I knew that I wanted to play with that and that would be my. Perennial Garden you might say or place perennials. and. Bulbs and a place we walk through every. Time. We go inside and out. So So it would. It would be a fun place to have that sort of a garden. But I realized. Almost. Immediately I didn't want a garden like I had Kale Duck Hill was Full of hedges and. And Boxwood topiary and. It was a series of rooms and it was very enclosed. And this new place where we lived was open to the sky and open to the fields and open to the view and I realized I didn't want. hedged. Garden anymore I wanted something that related to that wildness. So I I think I knew pretty much right away that I wanted a lot of natives in the in the in this. Little. Garden things like M. Sonia and Baptista and astor's and so on. And But then at the same time, I was thinking about what to do about this little garden. I was starting to explore. In the woods we I think we have about eleven acres of woods. And I got so excited about the woods, we have high rocky limestone dramatic woods on one side and low rich. Damp. Woods on the other side and I got so excited about. This wildland that all of a sudden. We were the stewarts of. that. I was almost torn. Half interested in creating a new garden. Half of me just wanting to start walks start pass in the woods and start cutting down the invasive. and. So that was a whole new world that excited me right from the beginning

It's happening any day now, not just any weeks any day now they're gonna get notice of allegations. vilely coming down in their situation and you have to be a genius to figure that out I mean that's just logical. I'm really amazed. It's taken this long the reason take long at Lsu I think that forty wrote about today is the fact that they've requested to gold funded. US. What they call it there's a new kind of deal we get independent resolution process long, and that takes time you invest the time my source tells me no, some of the people at the NCAA at the pandemic has slowed down the process in investigating and getting. People to go out and travel and do all the stuff. But they've told me the information source told me that they have level one charges against those schools and the reasons coaches survive is one reason if they were mediocre at best with their records where they're both coaching, they'd been God, the data stuff happen but they're there because they have one they have recruiting and I'm going to tell you the sad part. I had a couple of coaches. Tell me circle you guys think about this you both coached how do you feel that you're in? A battle with Arizona players, and here it is they may get dale big time by the NCAA. But in the meantime you're losing products and a similar issue is that fear I think the length of time that's taken just like the length of time taken to determine NC upsets me and I get I can fired up about this the time it's taken a determining eligibility. A somebody's kids will light the waivers that should be done before classes store classes of a really started and the kids are for Libya Kentucky, which I think you'll be declared. But he has not be clear jail what what is it brain surgery I don't understand how that. You can't room a couple of guys. Let's go this kid this kid and Al and al I mean, come on let's get these kids lives hanging there warriors wondering. You know it'd be eligible not eligible and you're in school a glass of. That should be determined prior to distort a school. Dick but one thing I will say is multiplied that length of time. By five to ten when you're coaching at Bowling Green as opposed to coaching at Indiana I mean. And it's no different kids lives in Kentucky is one thing but the the kids life is no different at amid major I mean. Absolutely, I agree with a Jerry Kid I. I know and that's what that would really really frustrate me. And the other thing is coach cheating out a victimless crime because guys jobs because other guys and you're playing with non even plainfield and and that's the thing that people. You know people say you know taking care of the kids that's all trying to do. You know they're doing the right thing by taking care of the kids at sheetings on a victimless crime I mean. You to think about this you know we we've mentioned. We'll wait here since you just brought up about sports sportscenter and not heard that, but you know it. Out there say they will we will wait is on Rick. I. Mean. He's talking about by employers I mean, how do you university tolerate? That's an embarrassment to your university and embarrassment and and yet they stood by that I don't understand could don't that. Do you think part of it.

I, don't know what the legal situation would be with getting rid of we'll wait or getting with of Shawn Miller, I just I just know this in my world. You're a coward I think you're a fraud I think you're insecure. If you cheat I, just do I just think you don't trust that you're any good at all at what you do and you have to cheat people say well, have to cheat to keep up. Well, I'll be honest with you. Whether I like Kim your guidance, she got plate right? About night I, mean I'm telling you I got. fired. Ron Felling and I didn't communicate. We call back in the day when you can only call a player once a week he this kid I called the same kid later in the week, we got pulled off the road tonight and I swear to, God we were going to be fired for one frigging Mr. You know what I mean, and these guys are tape talking about buying players and and. It infuriates me to no end. That's all I'm going to say today really does. It really troubles me too and you know think about this if you WANNA fired him at all. But what about this bruce prerogative five year show cause for having a party at his house where he lied to the NCAA that half but not having a party and they had a party I mean it wasn't buying players was. As Hamburgers hot dogs right now you guys talking but you just read to me Dan what sports in a said about bought by and going after offering lethal to eleven kids.

Of course don't you think? They have any. Again these are allegations. These allegations are true. Then they, there's not there's not a choice to be made I think what they Say what you just read.

I just. Can't believe it I think probably I've worked harder this year than ever because I was afraid you know fear subtypes could ya I was really afraid to go in virtually and not having the emotion of the crowd nine hundred people seeing the youngsters dare I speak about who cancer survivors the meet all the celebrities sixty seventy, dot com every year not having that I really was toll. You probably goal five, million forget about it. You know you look at a million to and that'll be great well, that just motivated me guys you know we just coaches a it's in our blood. We get somebody tells us can we like to go to extra mile and I worked the road? So, much that I finally got to a point that I call my buddies in I have no people to call on Gimme names Gimme people there's to be people you know and I'm telling you I worked in work twenty, four seven, and now I feel so relaxed that we're going to be over seven billion dollars. Two years ago. So people understand this I went a couple years ago we were at dickey's vs house. After the Oak Ridge boys were playing or something and I gotTa tell you and this is a fact I sat next to you on a chair by Your House and you were wiped out man you put so much into this. And people just raising my no, no, no, no. No. This is life blood for our friend Dick Vita and I'm sitting there looking at you and you're like man this. And you do you, you put everything into it and frankly. Part of the reason, my wife and I started a bike thing with with kids in Indianapolis is because you isolated if coach by doing this, my sorry ass needs to do something and I thank you for that hey boss. What do you think about the started college basketball where you at with that? Well you know I basically. Talking about a bubble bound terms of doing these tournaments like let's say example. It's not a bad idea. You get the Maui Tournament you get the Bahamas Tournament participate and you do save pattern. Didn't he? NBA. Play the bubble situation if that's possible let's do it if not I don't know. I. My gut feeling is when you talk about play I think maybe January might be a safe thing. Every day, I. Mean you just keep reading these numbers are unbelievable scary as heck my daughter granddaughter right now is at Notre Dame when she started to give a lecture about doing all the necessary things that you know the distancing social distancing the face masks and some kids didn't didn't follow it they went off the parties or campus and came back now I just read it over four hundred. Four hundred and fifty some people that are are, what do you call it have the have the virus in you know they're not doing things virtually at the campus for two weeks and the president give a great speech father jackets he told them he gave speeches and we'll go to go virtually the two weeks we're going to give trial you'd want to be. On campus but I'm telling you now if we find out anybody anybody violates what we do like some people who who very selfish wanted party, and now they came back over fifty came back with the with the covid nineteen is spread it on campus he said we are going to discipline big time meeting you may be put out of university and I think that Responsibility Accountability is vital. This is not something to be screwing around with one hundred, seventy thousand people dead. Families it's not a big deal. Those families it's not something to be really concerned about. So again. I. I just don't know what do you feel football plight seems like they're all the SEC said they're gonNA play, but there's a lot of people talking about that. Push comes to shove. That may not happen I. Don't know about football but I think we're gonNA play I actually think that sooner restart the better I think once once the students leave campus for Thanksgiving I really believe there's a chance that students are gonNA leave on Thanksgiving and not come back to February one and we're going to have a window between Thanksgiving February one where we can create our own bubbles are pods, keep our guys healthy keep them in a safe environment. Hopefully, we'll have some therapeutics in some vaccines. At some point and I. Just looking at at Dan Gavin. Four four potential starting dates I really believe Dan and I were just talking about this earlier. I think we will have a plan any protocol in place for all four of those, and then he's going to have the patience which is third. To decide which one makes the most sense I like the. Planned Protocol patients. That's kind of like something you would do dicky. Well I'll tell you one dan G- average doing a great job with that and I I saw the four potential dates and I agree with you we have time on our side obviously football's gotTA. Make some quick decisions in a pressure on the purchase. Really Think about the ACC sec the big twelve because God forbid man You know what they did. Let's face reality the Big Ten and PAC twelve they think they wanNA play football. Of course they do but it's different conflicting reports obviously make that decision on their own they went to help experts and you've got one side L. experts say one thing another sites. So like the political world that. You listen to one side. They say, well, one thing another site says another thing it's crazy. It's crazy but I'll tell you one thing it's got to be absolutely sure that these kids are safe because health and safety takes priority over any dollars being raised by having a football season of collegiate level. NFL's a whole different animal. Those guys paid music dollars this much college kids I'm telling you something they better be sure what they're doing. Coats couple of things. What do you think so far on the court of the NBA Player to Oh God I I'm blown away by the young stars the Adam silver the other day visit he got a permission to leave Orlando to bubble and he came down to spend time with me went to lunch the whole bit Tim. Corrigan about former he's a member of all drivers team, but we'll drivers tedious get. When I started here, and then I still work in all those years I had drivers pick me up when it would come to the airport the whole bit and come in and so my drives George table is a guy working in the mailroom became the president. I had guys like Tim Corrigan pretty good. All fame now NBC producer for Sunday night football, and I had some crew that drove me well, Timmy came down and we were talking and he's the executive producer for the NBA bubble. He said the job they dug near off the charge. He said the preparation and you gotta remember this and and certainly a seth, they spent one, hundred, fifty, million dollars I mean, we could talk a little bubbles we want. Zone happen. Those bubbles don't happen without a lot of. Money but how the NBA I think it's been great I. Think the play offs have been very competitive. See some performances when you watch Murray Against Mitchell Kentucky Louisville kind of match. He goes from fifty one Mitchell. The other kid goes from fifty in a one point game, and then the performance by don-shik is one of the most elite performance. I have ever witnessed in a clutch playoff situation to do what he did without. What is star teammates for singers didn't play he's got an ankle problem yet he plays goes for like forty three I Think, once seventeen thirteen and hits the clutch shot to win it at the end against that was cupcake city the clippers clippers play with a chip on his show yesterday though they came out I didn't see the final score. It was like one fifty something I mean they put a show on, but you know seeing these young stars, it's amazing. Amazing. Somebody young calendar. Future's really really bright. Something just kind of broke as we're talking coach, you caught on twitter. You've caught a Lotta hell. about you basically saying sources have told you that will weight's going to have a serious problem will let me read this sportscenter on twitter just said the NCWA says, Lsu men's basketball coach will wade either arrange for our offered infamous payments to at least eleven, potential recruits or others around them according to documents obtained by ESPN, s mark, Schlabach reporting.

For programs at that level as we know the high majors, we know the high mid majors like you know I call Baid. Mid Major Leagues. They're gonNA have the resources to do whatever they have to do. But I at least one you slide. Let's face it. When Stanford's dropping sports we have issues when Nebraska is dropping. You know furloughing people for three months in and eliminating positions. It's going across the board because those places have money those places raise money real money. But those mid-may dry low major programs man they survive on guarantee money and they're not going to be getting guarantee money, which is to impact every sport and every athlete on their campus. Well, let me ask you this. If you start at the normal time, why aren't they getting the guarantee money? Why wouldn't schedule to stay? Because I'm not sure we're going to see I. Think we're starting all the time but I'm I'm not sure they can see road games. I'm not going to because I. got if you're were you're Kentucky. Fairly scheduled play Kentucky. Are you GONNA play a? You'RE GONNA play Fairleigh Dickinson not knowing their protocol and they're testing. Well.

Yeah that's a great question and I don't know I. Here's the thing though I would say this about bowling green and I. Soon, this is everywhere else I.

People just didn't associate me with him. most people, even people I knew fairly well had no idea that I was any relationship I had any relationship with James dickey, the poet and author of deliverance, and after a fifteen or twenty years of doing that I felt very much that I'd become my own man so it didn't. It didn't bother me. It's easy to say, and it is probably true that my father told me. About, his War World War Two and he made it up, and I went out to cover wars, who I couldn't make anything up and ultimately no matter how cautious I wanted to be had to go out into combat and and see. See. What was happening? If I wanted to tell the truth about the experience? so sure it is a reflection of Mo-. Some of the kinds of things with my father was interested in, but he had no idea what I did. He had no idea what it was like gathering the truth and going out and experiencing these things first-hand seeking out. Combat and looking for confrontations, and then trying to find the truth. Behind what caused the situations? That just wasn't his Michio. Did your father have any objections to writing a book about him? Well I sort of broke it to him gradually. He knew that. He knew from the start that I was gonNA make a write a book about the making deliverance. and we and we would talk about that and then I. Gradually expanded as we would talk, and we would tape record long conversations about this. I would gradually expand the subject matter. So that by the summer of ninety six I think he had not an explicit idea, but a pretty clear idea of what I was doing. Which is why there's a scene fairly early in the book where I'm helping him up and down the stairs at our house down on the coast. And we're talking and he knows exactly what I'm thinking and what I'm working on and. And we have a whole discussion about truth and lies poetry and. Making things up and he says. that he wants me to remember what What he was to him. To me! And that he wants me to remember what what he says is remember what I was to you. And and that really is what the book is about and I think that he would understand that. Christopher Dickey I. Want.

The Yearning for the Unexplained
"Colin dickey joins us now from Brooklyn his new book is called the unidentified mythical monsters, alien encounters, and our obsession with the unexplained Collin. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me on I want to start by talking about another book when it came out pretty much a hundred years ago with a fairly lurid title. What was the book of the damned? Oh the book of the damned, so Charles Fort's as the author of the book damned, and he was a, he was a writer who I think he was. He was on a path to be a kind of I. Guess what you would call a crank writer somebody who had the sort of wild elaborate theory about how human civilization was controlled by radio, being sent from Venus or something like that he unsurprisingly didn't get very far with that particular book and it's it's. It's been lost. It was never published a it got rejected and immediate he he would spend his days down at the new. York Public Library he lived in Manhattan, he would walk. The New York Public Library, and he would just spend his morning reading various newspaper, and scientific, Journal articles about various strange planed things that that he came across everything from ball, lightning, two frogs and fish, falling from the sky, blood rains, just various bizarre things that nobody really could understand. Understand, or how good kind of idea what what was going on here? And he just started collecting those, and what came the book of the damned was this oddball collection of these unexplained phenomenon, and rather than advocates, some kind of theory, what makes the book of the damned so great and strangest? He just kind of puts it all out there and says we don't really have explanations for a lot of these things you know, hence the idea of you know the. The the book of the Damn these for fourth. These are damned facts. These are damned stories because they're. They're excluded from from science and religion was like the early x-files. Yeah, exactly, it's except without going so far as to even say that you know. Aliens are behind it. It's sort of I mean in his later books for it would kind of try in kind of offer a thesis, but those are usually kind of its weakest moments when he's at his best. When. He sort of just kind of throwing out these ideas without necessarily. Of having to answer them, just kind of putting them out there on the table for the rest of us to kind of marvel at our physical copies of this book still around Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah, it's still in print. That's actually in public domain, so they're they're you know you can get lots of different editions of it? I got this this Great Hopi Dover Thrift edition of all four of his books, which is like twelve hundred pages in total and the massive unwieldy thing that kind of falls me from apartment to apartment. All right well, we'll talk about your book now. which will explain why a? Book of the damned might figure into things. Let's start with your subtitle mythical monsters, alien encounters and our obsession with the unexplained. Give us a sense of what territory your book covers. You know enlarge party grew out of the two thousand sixteen election grew out of a lot of the sense of misinformation conspiracy theories, and all these things that were were floating around, and a lot of which was being attributed to social media which I. Think is fair and accurate, but I also. Wanted to dig a little deeper into the genealogy of where some of these beliefs come from and. What I found again and again is you know? Just simply telling somebody, the factual truth about an a given incident or conspiracy theories is usually rarely enough because these beliefs are operating somewhere on a kind of more primal level. I really wanted to understand how we became a culture. That is kind of yearning for the unbelievable. That is yearning for something that is beyond the reach of science and religion, and so ended up going back to crypt the bigfoot lock ness monster chew copper things like that as well as the lost continent of Atlantis, and Maria and an aliens in and UFO's sort of these these three threads that really define the modern particularly in America kind of the twentieth century America's attempt to find something, magical and mysterious. Scientific Rationale Yeah I was GONNA. Ask about who the we is. I'm curious are Americans. Especially Gullible do we have a particular history with conspiracy theory and this mass, hysteria or mythology I'm not sure it's goal ability, and first of all I mean I think that in some sense, there is an almost conscious decision to believe the unbelievable that that runs through a lot of this. It's not entirely exclusive to Americans. I mean certainly loch ness monster is a you know a denizen of of Scott, London, and the UK certainly loves Nessie, but I do think it is a by-in-large, a function of a kind of modern industrial age culture that has kind of tap out the world prior to. I Dunno, the you know seventeenth eighteenth century there were still literal monsters. There were still things that were unexplained. There were still hearts of the globe that that Western nations hadn't experienced a reached or whatever, and so you could still believe that there were strange things out there.

Sending Group Text Messages with Blind Carbon Copy
"Rick in Glendale he wants to do like a BCC taxed? Is there such thing like email helped him out? Thank you thank you thank you. Hi Rick Halio. I'd like to claim the position of being your eleventh biggest fan of the list. Been listening for thirteen years since your debut on your flagship station here in southern California. And you're right. Yes thank you. Go Go to guy for all questions tech related and this is probably so obvious but not obvious to me. That's why I'm asking you and I you know I as Kim mentioned I know on an email. There's a feature called BC which is an mosh to those old enough to remember carbon paper. Carbon copies stands for Ya. Isn't that funny? I haven't seen that same teacher on text messaging when my family sends me a group text. I can see all the people have gone to. I want to be able to send out a text like ten people and not have them no. I've sent it to ten people so they can each reply to me if they want not thinking. This was like a mass mailing as a way to do that. And text messaging iphone or Android It's android yeah I'm on a So there is as far as I know no way to do it in the Iphone MESSAGES APP But there are and I don't know if it's possible in the android APP dickey Google keeps. It's a moving target isn't it? Google keeps changing the the first of all the APP itself and the second the features on the APP so the current android messages from Google. It might have a BCC what this just. Everybody knows this right. In fact I hope people know that because I still get you know you send out a message to a large group of people and what you're supposed to do is put your own address in the to field and then underneath it there's this. Bcc blind carbon copy. And you put everybody else's address there and then when the people get the email it looks like you dressed yourself but they don't see everybody else's email so you're not violating People's privacy. It also has the advantage of somebody replies. They don't get to reply to all right because that's the worst thing. If you reply to all on a on a on a male thread with thousands of people in there they all get your reply. It's so embarrassing. Can you take me off this thread? So there anybody out there in your chat group has any answer. I'm happy to download a third party. There are Third Party. Apps that do it And so that may be the best to do it. There's a I can I? I could see if we can find a list of all the third party apps we is there anything. The problem with doing this of course is everybody has to use the same APP although actually with android sometimes some of these apps you can designate. Is Your official messaging APP. And then if you do a B C as you go to everybody so Let me let me just look here. there are. There's like text plus Textra there quite a few third party texting APPS. I don't know if any of the main ones I bet you telegram. Does that would be one to look at I actually am a big fan of telegram. That's a three names to search. Yeah let me just see if telegram does. I'm pretty sure they do. They have a really robust Group messaging features. I think that they do blind carbon for For for telegram. I would try that one. The problem with it again is if everybody's using telegram it'll be a BCC if you send something to from telegram to android messages not clear if it will stay invisible and that's the issue right. You don't want it. Secret leaked by accident right so you might have to experiment a little bit. Yeah to save time. I'd like to if I've got a hundred people. I WANNA tax. Break it down and send him attended time. I know I could copy paste into a hand. Yeah Yeah so by the window before I go let me just mention whatever you're paying cameras your screener is not enough. She is just outstanding. I agree Yeah you know. It's nice because I come in here and there she is your smiling face and it makes just makes me feel good to see her so she's great. She helps. She helps well. It's not much of an answer. It's something it's a start in a text message as opposed to you know how to do it in email you can. There's a field you can add to that but You know I just wanted for experimenting. So many messaging APPS. I actually have a folder with messaging. App says signals. A good one. I really liked signal that's fully encrypted telegram not quite so encrypted but has more features there's Facebook Messenger. Can you do facebook messenger? Figure it out

"Our stories we try to find as much good in the world we possibly can and we look through the news of the day that you'll care about also your favorite country. Artists are always stopping by hang out and share their lives and music to wake up with a bunch of my friends. I Ninety Eight Point Seven W. MC Q. in Washington D. C. Or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. Welcome back and welcome back to the eighteenth century because we are just apparently time traveling all over this episode today gas. I say eighteenth century because this is when we see the origin of the word Dickie and when. I say that it's spelled D. I C K Y in the context of the FASHION ITEM. That we've been talking about so far. It's usually spelled d. I C. K. I. e. So during the latter portion of the Eighteenth Century This were dickey with a y. Was really used to convey and describe something that was almost over our whether I guess makes perfect sense. False shirt is almost over but not quite exactly and so by the late nineteenth century the term is used to reference not only menswear but also children's wear and women's wear and detachable sailor callers on young boys sailor suits which were very popular at the time were called dicky's and also the lady equestrian was advised on her riding attire by Ladies Home Journal in Eighteen. Ninety three quote adjustable dicky's and cuffs which button to the jacket with tiny flat Pearl. Buttons are sometimes used. They're made of some contrast in color hunting. Pink rich light red being the favourite shade and while the Silhouette had changed greatly Bhai nineteen eighteen with more and more women. Giving up the corset. The fat for Dicky's remains strong rates. Women's wear daily and their November. Twenty ninth issue quote Dicky's of contrasting colored class or made with narrow flat saucer collars which fasten in back and are used in place. Waistcoat ON CARLA LISS JACKETS. Which have their friends meeting at the neckline and cutting away gradually to either side to show the full deke front so fast forward just a bit in the nineteen forties may have been the heyday of the Dickie. Because CASS when I was going through like all the primary sources there are the nineteen forties like. There are so many references to dicky's in the fashion press at the time and especially during the warriors and I couldn't help but think that this rise perhaps in popularity during the nineteen forties had everything to do with the make do and mend movement. You know because you can change the look of an outfit simply by changing your neck. Wear or you're you're under thing and you could use Dicky's under suits and you could also wear them under sweaters so in nineteen forty four. Women's wear daily even did a really interesting feature on coordinating printed sook gloves and matching dicky's and while those were certainly considered luxury items at the time as silk was rationed during the war a quote unquote dickey day were recommended domestic servants to share with their uniforms at the reasonable price of what would be six dollars each today. I have to just say a dickey day. My mind totally just wanting to get her to but one of my very favorite primary sources that I that I found on dicky's was actually in Seventeen magazine and it was in nineteen sixty four because they had these little advertisements in the back where you could mail order. Dicky'S IN MADRAS PLAID FOR THREE DOLLARS. Which would have been about twenty five dollars today and I happen to realize that. Nineteen sixty four was about the exact same time that my mom was in high school so that she probably was the target audience for this advertisement. So naturally you called her and talked all about Dicky's Oh I had totally. Did we had a whole conversation about Dicky's yesterday and she really had nothing but really great things to say about them. She was like. I'm quoting her here. She says they were more convenient than our shirt that they were easy to put on. There were no hassle and they were cheap and she said that the draw of dickey was that you could have a lot of them and so you can change your outfit. Which is exactly what we just talked about. And she also said that there wasn't a lot of upkeep some of them could be cotton and like very fine cotton and very expensive but others were just like really simple knits and they were cut to look a turtleneck and she said they were easy to store she was like underneath all these other garments. They were they were comfortable. There's no extra bulk. And she said that any at any given time during the nineteen sixty two probably owned like five or six of them and she said that she really likes look. She said they quote looked sharp. And I'm sure many of our listeners. Were wondering if you're wearing a false shirt. What are you wearing underneath? Yes and this is question that I also asked. She said that you just wore your bra or a slip perhaps But of course this also meant that. If you're wearing a suit jacket you couldn't take it off ever right so I I was in my mind. I was thinking how many times woman accidentally forget that. Maybe she wasn't wearing a full shirt or full sweater underneath and maybe put herself in a rather embarrassing situation by starting to take off her jacket. I don't know maybe this never happened. But that that was a scenario reading through my brain and so the popularity of the Dickie began to wane in the nineteen seventies and we see significantly less mentions of them in the fashion press the end of the decade which is also the same time. When dickey's the work wear brand begins to pop up a lot because people had begun wearing the brand in a fashion context after the company began offering their pants and overall in more than twenty four colors they even started advertising and rolling stone. Yes so this is like dicky's the work where brand now transitioned into fashion. Which is kind of interesting. So the late nineteen seventies seemed to be the end of the era of the neck. Where Dicky but I did continue to find a few references moving forward to it here. And there for instance the December nineteen ninety one issue of good housekeeping had an ad for deluxe dicky's Day and evening. Wear because I have to say kind of the whole thing kind of comes off by the nineties. As kind of outdated fuddy-duddy maybe like older lady fashion. Although I have to say that I did a Google search. I don't know if you if you did as well but there are actually some dicky's that are alive and well in high fashion. Today you went down wrote that I did not explore. I want to hear all about this Well the luxury fashion brand of Ron Beard has a dicky's of so you google decades. There's a dollar ninety nine versions. You can get them all the colors of the rainbow. And then you have one hundred and fifty to two hundred fifty dollar versions by the luxury Fashion Brand Veronica beard. So for instance they have a Hoodie. Dickey to achieve the desired layered. All Leisure. Look without the bulk. So apparently they're still quite practical too. We don't necessarily see them as much. I'd I definitely do not have one in my door. Just say so and we hope that answers. Your question about the history of the dicky's seems we have been wearing this historic style for much longer than that does it. For instance address listeners.

"dickey" Discussed on Dressed: The History of Fashion
"With over seven billion people in the world. We all have one thing in common every day. We all get dressed. Welcome to address the history of fashion. A podcast where we explore the WHO. What went of why we wear? We are fascist. Aryans and your house. Cassidy's Zachary and April Kelly Cass. I have a question for you. It's very personal question. Did your grandmother ever tell you about the very first time she got a Dickey for those of you so inclined. Please get your mind out of the assure you. This episode is safe for work and your kids in the car. Because today's fashion history mystery is not about what many of our collective grandma's referred to as necking. But it's about neck wear that's right because today's fashion history. Mystery question comes to us from listener and man who wanted to know about the history of the dickey and thank you and because I have to say I personally have worn a dickey or two in my child Cashier many are younger than I am. So did you ever wear a deke growing up? I did not wear too key curling a but I do have to say anytime that I hear about a dickey or my go-to reference for a dickey is national. Lampoon's Christmas vacation which I don't know if you've seen I have but I remember I don't remember the Dicky's so cousin Eddy. All His glory wears a green dickey under a white sweater cousin Eddy. Yes yes I mean as a Kid. I hated wearing them. I was really confused by what their purpose was. And you know despite the fact that Dicky's are indeed the subject of today's episode. I'm going to have to admit I'm still a little bit perplexed. Defense. I know and just to clarify. We are not talking about Dickie's brand of work. Where styled pants are overalls but rather a form of undergarment which women's wear daily neatly summed up in nineteen forty five quote unquote? Flat Net queered aware under coats or suits. Which in my mind I immediately evokes the thought of a scarf but dicky's for Oh so much more than that or maybe we should even say. Oh so much less because really how I would best describe a dickey is that it's a false shirt. It's kind of like a fake shirts. Kind of part caller part BIB and dickey's were a caller was attached a front flap. That kind of came down over your chest and then it generally speaking. It had a similar flap which covered the center back. And the point of a dickey was to create the effects of wearing a shirt beneath garment when in reality there there weren't any sleeves and and it wasn't a full shirt because it didn't really envelope torso. There was nothing there right. And while this concept may strike many of our listeners particularly I should say are younger listeners as a bit odd and reality versions of this garment have been worn four centuries dating all the way back to the Middle Ages. Most of us can probably conjure up a mental picture of a nuns habit. So you know. The curved white panel covering her chest is indeed this type of garment and it dates back all the way to the Middle Ages called again pe and attached to a high collar which covers the neck against simply ties at the center back draping over the chest and shoulders. Yeah and fast forward about five centuries and this type of garment is still being worn. In the nineteenth century it belonged to a category of dress called Paradise Sue in French or kind of like under things in English. So it wasn't quite lingerie it's not quite an accessory either And during the nineteenth century these sort of interchangeable and also cuffs were frequently used as quote unquote fillers. And we've talked a bit about this on the show but nineteenth century fashion was strictly ruled by its appropriateness for the time of day. Yeah and I just want to interject here really quick that that this intersection of fashion with time is actually going to. The theme of the upcoming exhibition was going to open at the Costume Institute. Here in May and I'm super excited about this cast because I have always said and you've heard me say this before that if I ever went back to school my PhD. That this intersection of time and fashion. That is what I would want to investigate. As my course of study. I digress a bit. We were we were talking about fillers and the time of day during the nineteenth century afternoon and evening called for distinct forms of dress which gradually revealed more of the body as the day progressed so in the morning a woman would wear a dress with long sleeves which covered the arms down to their wrists and she usually had a high collar that covered the neck. And then come afternoon. She may change into address with it. Three quarter length sleeve anymore rounded caller that reveals more of the neck and then followed by evening engagements where the body could be quite more revealed with copious amounts of Taj being revealed. The chest on display was short sleeved. Bodices that barely skim the shoulders. And if this sounds like a lot of changing of one close to you listeners you would be very much correct because it was not uncommon at this time for upper and middle class women to change their clothes up to six. Maybe even seven times a day during the nineteenth century. I mean cast. I'm doing pretty good if I change clothes three times a day you know. I've got my gym clothes. I've got my day clothes and then I have my pajamas okay. Maybe four times a day. If I'm going out for the evening some thing else yeah and of all those changes of clothing you better bet. Many women looked for a way to simplify and our economies their wardrobes and this is where these so called fillers came in with a bit of additional coverage. A woman could really adopt her slightly more revealing afternoon dress into humble perfectly appropriate to wear in the morning. Yeah and they would and they would do this by adding half sleeves or cuffs on the lower arm of an afternoon dress so that the army be fully covered. They could also add what was called a Schmidt Zetsche which was kind of the nineteenth century term for dickey would basically just suitably cover the neck and the collar area and this this whole purpose of this was to style your afternoon dress more conservatively. So that you could wear it in the morning and then as the day progressed you could kind of just take off these little bits and pieces of filler instead of changing your entire outfit At some point in the day December nineteen thousand three issue of Harper's bazaar recommended dicky's on their list of holiday gifts for this season saying pretty lace dicky's are made of alternate strips of lease al-Sham. Do which is you know insertion or something placed between two things and lace embroidery and are useful with any of the variety of low cut gowns. Now seen however this nineteen three mentioned is far from the first mention of this term dickey in the fashion press as early as eighteen fifties. We see this term used in reference to children's wear particularly for young boys and the magazine Home Journal. Wrote this really kind of cute article about age appropriateness in fashion for boys in eighteen fifty one and they say quote around twelve the rage for frock. Coats and high dicky's commences so all of a sudden at this age. I guess our boys being interested in fashion. That's what I took away from that. But by high dicky's what they're referring to here is almost certainly false shirt fronts. That were worn by many many men throughout the nineteenth century. Yes so for reasons of economy or ease of care rather than putting on a clean shirt each and every day beneath your suit it was more common. Perhaps for men to switch out a clean caller which into the shirt below or a false shirt front and that simply tied around the waist. These false shirt fronts were especially popular for evening wear under Tuxedos and I mean really out of time when you could never let loose and remove your jacket. So no one would have noticed the difference writing Yeah for sure. And so this false shirt front. This terminology seems pretty straightforward. I mean it's describing exactly what's going on there with that garment accessory or whatever you WANNA call it but why do we have this other term dickey? We're going to learn more about the origin of this word. Right after a brief sponsor great. Hey guys it's bobby bones host bobby bones show and I'm pretty much always sleepy because I wake up at three o'clock in the morning a couple hours later. I get all my friends together. We get into a room and we do a radio show which are alive we tell.

Yes yes I mean as a Kid. I hated wearing them. I was really confused by what their purpose was. And you know despite the fact that Dicky's are indeed the subject of today's episode. I'm going to have to admit I'm still a little bit perplexed. Defense. I know and just to clarify. We are not talking about Dickie's brand of work. Where styled pants are overalls but rather a form of undergarment which women's wear daily neatly summed up in nineteen forty five quote unquote? Flat Net queered aware under coats or suits. Which in my mind I immediately evokes the thought of a scarf but dicky's for Oh so much more than that or maybe we should even say. Oh so much less because really how I would best describe a dickey is that it's a false shirt. It's kind of like a fake shirts. Kind of part caller part BIB and dickey's were a caller was attached a front flap. That kind of came down over your chest and then it generally speaking. It had a similar flap which covered the center back. And the point of a dickey was to create the effects of wearing a shirt beneath garment when in reality there there weren't any sleeves and and it wasn't a full shirt because it didn't really envelope torso. There was nothing there right. And while this concept may strike many of our listeners particularly I should say are younger listeners as a bit odd and reality versions of this garment have been worn four centuries dating all the way back to the Middle Ages. Most of us can probably conjure up a mental picture of a nuns habit. So you know. The curved white panel covering her chest is indeed this type of garment and it dates back all the way to the Middle Ages called again pe and attached to a high collar which covers the neck against simply ties at the center back draping over the chest and

"dickey" Discussed on Small Doses
"I'm dealing with one of the most ridiculous humans known to man right here Dickie and I connect because we are both somehow oddly silly and serious very serious but very silly in like extreme intense amount was the amount of thoughts and sentences that we try to put together. They don't always match up so you take your time and it's just like but guess what this this because there's so much there's so much and you have an. I don't so that's how we work well together because I'm like that's it that's it I that's it So I met Dickey when I was shooting the pilot for a show called hip hop. Pov TV the executive producer was tiffany. Lia Williams me by the way you scared me and I will tell you the story. Yes your presence. God we go into here. We'll salon dicky comes over dicky's like hello. Hello Hello I'm never been a salon girl. I've never been there so it was very like. Oh my God. I don't even know how to carry myself. And you're Dicky what he does when he does consultation. He says in front of the mirror he puts his hands in your hair. He talks to you. He rubs SCALP. He asked you questions he very much like. Makes you feel comfortable about not only where you are but about like his knowledge and he wants to understand what you about your hair about taking care of your hair etc so I do nothing so in that moment I felt very like ou embarrassed so ticky is also very good at what we got you. This is a safe space. All the people in the air capable and we got you. He told me we're GONNA do is I had like blond highlights and he was like this won't do we're going to give you a blonde halo around your crown to lighten you up to lighten your energy up which is slightly offensive. Then he said we're going to give you lowlights and highlights. I didn't even know there was a gradient. Okay so Catania get to it so sets forth on this journey with me so what happens. Is You get your color then? Go sit indicates chair and he gives you a cut now again. I am very like not savvy about this process so I'm not used to my hair being cut or being dealt with etc so my hair has split ends things going on dickey guys my hair and when I turn around I have a very small Africa. But that's what you saw. That's what I saw what you saw. I cry now. You should also know that I have for crying. Thanks for telling me. My mother went through this when she told me to get my haircut in tenth grade and I said I like a line like to my shoulder okay line. It was a move when she cut it to my Chin and it was like. That's not what I asked for and driving home like I was crying about it and going about it so much that at a red light. My mom turned me and said I will drive into this and I said do it because at that point my hair was so bad. It's like whatever I got to go to school on Monday or lake smart ass so I just remember feeling so panicked. I hated you I was like I love when women share pletcher after the fact because these things that are shared with me in the chair I get that because we you know we don't share them for me. 'cause we respect you but we respect you and it's your shop. It's you know what I mean like. It's intimidating and also I was there for work. The member like tiffany brought me. They're like as a makeover before we did a show. So I felt like I was being ungrateful to not Be Legs at happy. Yup I went in. I went to the stairwell. They have like a stairs and cab to Harlem so my hair started to grow out though and then you were assigned so then the show got picked up five minutes later and you were the hairstylist on the show. Don't remember I I remember that. Don't remember your account just now. Okay what we what we remember what we choose what? That's I know I was just coming. I was the face coming through. All right whatever so I could totally see that but for me it's like. Oh my God I'm going to here with Dickie and here is all thing so when we get to MTV. You're the Silas you had Another Silas was named not mentioned. And and you all were working with us on the day to day and I just started to get more comfortable because you gave me knowledge about my hair and me being just me being the negative. I am my comfort. Level lies and information like inconsistency so the two things that make me feel comfortable information consistency. And you just like made me no more about my hair about what what it can do about this whole like natural hair thing and I think that women really like your clients are not people that just like come to your shop like you have people that show up and you have people that have grown up at your shop. I have grown up at Harrell's 'cause that was two thousand twelve. That's why you act like that when you come yes okay no. I totally makes sense now. You know men DART. We're real basic so you don't take down the hole but it's funny you find these things out afterwards as like. Why is she acting like that? How are you know like you? You are really comfortable in the fact that she's jumping around and she's making other people nervous she's not me but I'm like leave her alone and so are being the way she right but half of it is listening. And I'm I'm that Nigga I will fight you if you fuck my hair up. I don't want no problems as I know how far ago but I know that ninety percent of it is listening and people just want to be heard. And if you're not and if they don't feel like they're being heard not only. Are They not going to trust you? But you're not going to really get the right information because ally the right and hairdressers are known for lie for lying. It's a very gimmick driven industry. Which is why when you go to hair shows half of that shit that you see it. A hair show ain't no client going to ever walk out there out of this long looking like that so hairdressers. Because their lack of knowledge in half of the textures within the texture spectrum they weren't given any information on so the the the even the term kinky curly. There's no mention of the word Kinky or curly in any textbook across the globe for any hairstylists who wanted to go to school to get a license to do hair. Your taxes not mentioned. That's GONNA cost problems. Yeah so hairdressers loved alliance. Say They can do some shit when in fact all you're doing is just being dishonest. And she's not even if you don't know remember Tupperware Mary. Kay Yes are you gotta do is tell. Just take your client by the hand but about what you don't know and and have a Q. and a. How have have a hair have a natural air. Meet up and talk about your. That's why they were so huge back in the early two thousands natural hair meet ups because women had found the worldwide web not the industry professionals because the consumers much smarter than the professional no professionals know what they know what they know and they're the baddest AD and they and they make the they've they've made a lot of money off of using your hair as an anchor for other hairstyles and or yes chemicals. That you're you did you. Had you know that whole term? I go get my hair did. That's the term. Yeah it just means that you got your hair. Did nobody talk to you about it now. Thirty years later. You can't figure out why you don't hear and you went through menopause. I so you you weren't even able to see how your health or your age did some changes because of this thing that popped up every four to six weeks and you were like you told you thought it was bad or ugly. So there's just this whole experience or lack thereof for myths and mockery surrounding women and their natural hair texture that cause women to walk in the Salon and want to Want someone to give them information. Yes right out. La I'm here in l. a. Now right Doing a kind of natural hair out is not like it is in New York DC. It's interesting because you know I hate to use the word Transplant or or migration black folks fled the south care to to to La so black people. Here they don't get relaxers they can do some country ask presses. Oh yes but there's a lot of us is what fucked me up. Remember that yes so as I'm looking at your hair preserved in its beautiful self. Because she was like no. You can't do that to my hair literally. I didn't know better And I just got my hair colored and it was the first time that I had someone else. Color my hair outside of hair rules since I started going to your salon so but they were referred by you so I was like fine but I did a show the next day and the girl who did my hair. She pressed my hair to the God. God's but because I had just gotten it colored I didn't realize that the two can be a lethal combination and the next week I did a photo shoot and typically I dislike cough and my hair curls. Okay so like I got. I got to the photo shoot just like spray. Some water on my hair like okay. It's time to get right. Am I. Here looks at me like bitch wears it was like genuinely like you know when cancer patients lose their hair talk about how jarring it is alopicia patients. They talk about how much it hurts. And if you've never gone through that it's hard to truly understand like what is because it feels like a tear superficial. I did not lose my hair but even just losing my curl like depressed. The Shit I right because you're used to seeing yourself a certain way and now it's just not and it's not by choice and I call Dickie in a fucking panic like I think reload no I definitely was teary eyed. And I was crying I was like I don't know what to do when you come to New York. I booked a flight that weekend came to New York and we gave his Jewish. But you're like you're GONNA have to back out and we were doing like I was doing Bigger it took a year to book by. Its back and now. I'm growing my blonde out so I can let my hair gets like a full natural organic base before I colored again. 'cause this hasn't been there since. I was thirty and you also you do. You're in You'RE IN TV now. Getting yeah and also the styles that you wear protective styles. So you don't have to beat it up anymore. What do you mean they protected thousands of a slick back? That's site is really because you're you're particularly for your hair you don't but he's on it right and they're great ponytails or great braves them long now. I wash my hair every night. And so those are those are those are styles that don't require you to have to like. I don't know if you remember there were just Several years ago when black folks coming up in the in in in Hollywood which is coming up just a few years ago where you were either you were. You had to wear a straight hair you had to wear. We've or have straight hair. I was told when I got an MTV. A friend of mine who you know you get advice from good people sometimes but he was like now that you're on TV right you need away and at some bullshit and we know that that doesn't really sell it was all bullshit and now you were left ball headed and fucked up because because who knew. I mean and also. I don't know if you remember. The Standard of beauty was not yours. A few years ago I went through an entire industry fashion and beauty industry and my life where the standard of beauty was blonde hair and blue eyes it was Christie Brinkley. Yes and it was beautiful but it was fucking boring and it's like and you knew particularly moving to New York from the West Coast and you know no disrespect. But I'm from Seattle and our idea. I moved from Seattle to Arizona to San Francisco and then to New York in eighty nine. And it wasn't until I got to New York in eighty nine. I was like Oh shit but prior to getting to New York I was like there are black people. There are white people. There are Mexicans in their Asian. But and that was the version that was diversity version. That was never diversion diversion because I had no fucking deal what the hell diversity was and then I got to New York and I was like Oh shit. Black people are from the islands. Wanted this red man. I'm proud I knew exactly what he was talking about. How come this? How come this does brother is speaking French right? How come Hey Dominicans Dominicans with asking me if I speak? I'm talking Spanish to me because I don't speak Spanish. And and and Dominicans are not Mexicans. No they're dominicans. Puerto Ricans and they're not Puerto Ricans.
The Aldi Haul Episode: January Edition
"All right now? This is the hall but their brother. It'd be their brothers store. Career Joe's has just announced their version of plant based Burger. They're calling them protein patties and the box. It looks pretty much like the beyond Burger packaging like the almost exactly the same just with with their own name on it It comes What has eighteen grams of protein made from a blend of protein sunflower oil beats and seasonings and for the package which which comes with two? It's a four dollars and forty nine cents which I believe is significantly cheaper than beyond so I thought why don't we try them. So I went to trader Joe's to go get them and and I did not come back with them. The stats are crazy. High Two hundred ninety calories a patty and twenty grams of fat. That is very high. Weren't aren't they calling them. Protein patties. It should be called Fatty Pettis. No seriously I have to say like I. I would have tried them so I think we should try them. But I don't understand. Like I am a big proponent of plant based Patties I've been eating the Boca patties and the Morningstar patties forever and I thought they were amazing. Doing what I love the most about the original Boca patties. They were seventy sometimes eighty calories. They tasted a lot like burger. There were very low in fat. All all of these new patties are there just loaded with fat and a lot of them with saturated fats. And I don't quite understand why I think they just trying to add so so much fat and flavor and intern calories. They're just trying to fool people into thinking. This tastes as rich as full. Fat Fatty Fat. Now they call them like the bleeding patties. Is there supposed to be like juicy like real burgers. How many calories are in our normal hamburger probably around the same as a lot of these impossible burgers depending on how thick the Patty is? But they're pretty thin. Kim I mean if you go to a restaurant with a big thick burger your pet. He's going to have a lot more but these are not gigantic patty so I would say typically I. I'd be shocked if there was more than three hundred calories and twenty grams of fat in a thin Burger. I honestly think less because think about it even regular ground beef. What to fifty to sixty four ounce portion Kevin probably yeah? I don't know it's upsetting but we'll try. You've ruined everything. Mike Saving the day by not making your try it and now you want it thank you. You're very thoughtful and I know that if there was peanut butter involved in some way we'd be eating those patties right. I found out that it's not today that this podcast airing today that we're recording it. National Peanut Butter Day. What wow law? I hope we get to celebrate Pyotr. You can have more all right. We're GONNA jump into the Aldy Hall. We love all the all. The is a sister store to trader. Joe's I don't know if you have an all near you. I feel like it's even more inexpensive offensive than trader. Joe's there are some fun cool things. What are some of those dickey things? I don't get to go to all these as much as So everything that they have. That's it's their own brand. Looks like the real stuff. So like frosted flakes looks like frost. The other version looks like frosted flakes are. I'm trying to think of some of the healthiest like their their protein. Eighteen bars mirrors and what about checkout again. There's something crazy right so checkout you you have to bag your own groceries. Jamie thought it was kind of funny. Aw I thought it was weird. Because she's putting everything into our cart and I'm thinking if I just open a bag and put it in the car. She's doing the same amount of work. Oh she won't put it in the now we have to take Out of a cheese but she picked up each item and put it in our card so I just wanted to be like. Here's a bag of weight. And so so wait. She won't let you just take it has to. I put it in the car and then you have to go to. Mike said No. You have to go to the bagging station and I think it's efficiency because there are things that go through that line really fast. So I think it's an efficiency thing was inefficient. Whatever it is? They're able to sell things very inexpensively. Mike actually has received today so he may rattle off just how inexpensive some of these finds are truth be told I had nothing to do with picking these products out. They were brought to me. I am being surprised with all all of them sometimes and fake it. I'm sorry like a lot of more new but some of the things we have to talk about this so we did a good job. I hope you did

So that's what proxy has going all the places in Colorado and Sun Valley in Miami and stuff are prettier than park city because they're more remote but easy to get to it is records is a cuter town though. Oh Yeah I mean. That's everything about the Callao towns prettier better everything. Actually all has is the easy to get to. Oh well has more than that but for the I was a good to talk to another mountain. Did we actually have a long comment.

FACEBOOK Grew up in Sun Valley located. No kidding wow were you on the scheme in high school and I mean pre high school I would ask and then I'm sure with you.

We do Which is have my credit card debt and then set money aside for me so are are kind of ethos? Is We set very high bar for what automation means. It's not recommendations it's not advice. It's actually doing the thinking and the work so so that you can have your feet on the table. So everybody at tally. When you join you get you? Get a pair of tally sucks. I love it and we got into a little bit of of of tally there. But like let's let's start earlier in the background. Like where do you up in cool. Ski Town Kid You WanNa like go to a big city for college like I want to do. What's going through your mind? Will it was for me. Actually I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur actually I've a little flyer that my mom saved. She showed me a couple years ago but I went door to door offering would stacking and poop scooping services when I was nine and actually when I was a freshman in college I started my first company which I ended up growing to four hundred employees dot. I built a one of the largest residential house painting companies in Massachusetts so I actually moved moved to To Boston to start this company. Anthony as a teenager and that company got acquired and I built a a couple of other companies thereafter. So I've just always been in love with the idea of You know taking an idea that you're passionate about from scratch and turning it into something and At least for me tally is the thing that's been closest to my heart. Because growing up there was just a lot of There's a lot of anxiety in our household around money and my mom in particular. Is this really dynamic eccentric. SMART person she works. It's really hard. Runs her own business and despite all of that She just there's just a lot of A lot of financial financial stress and she really hasn't been able to reach Chennai ever financial goals. So I was just like man. I want to build a service. That's capable of taking the load off of people and allow them to live their lives lives and so my mom. She's an exercise and she's a Ravi again. It's like you do all that okay and we're GONNA pay all your bills and manage everything for you just like if you had like a team of five. I people working for you and I want to build that into software so that we cannot take take all that All that off of off of the human experience plate and allow people to just do what they love right so this is an interesting kind of play. I always get to it so you grew up in an entrepreneurial family like this was instilled in you from from day one it was never. I'M GONNA go work for some big bank or something you know any my parents were Were Very Encouraging that we we should charter on path. And Actually I was home schooled for the first All the way through sixth grade and end you know I mean even my mom. She's like. Hey what do you Wanna learn and I was like well. I WANNA learn about taxidermy. She's like okay so she went through the yellow pages and cold. Called taxidermists is and found one that would let us camp out in their workshop for a a week or so and like we'd go there and you learn about the taxidermy business in all the chemicals they use and everything things so it was just this idea of. Hey the world is your oyster. You just have to be willing to go you know make phone call or knock on the door and go explore and you can learn anything. You want You just have to be willing to go after it so Feel really really fortunate. It's really empowering way to to educate here's some crappy don't Wanna learn learn it memorize. Yeah like learns actually care about exactly and it's just that that intrinsic motivation. My parents were always. It was all about curiosity and chasing your curiosity so for me. I was never at a point where I dreaded school like I always like. I couldn't wait to go to school like me when I hear my friends talking about. Like the next game of thrones. I haven't watched that here. It's over but when they were talking about the next episode that excitement and anticipation. That's kind of what I felt going to school because I was like. What am I gonNA learn? And what new ideas am I gonNA the House. Oh yeah that was definitely thanks to my parents okay. So then. What's the start of this of this house painting company? Yeah it was just I mean when you're eighteen years old old end Wanting to start a business I was like. Hey I want to do something. That will require a lot of employees because I really wanted to learn about leadership and I wanted to learn about on just like the actual people side of running a business and so that seemed like an accessible thing for me and the first year I had about Fifty employees and then ended up going from there to About four hundred when I sold the company and honestly I mean I I did eventually get an NBA from University of Chicago. But I learned more in those couple years running house painting business than I. I haven't any other point in my life and just just a complete crash course in you. Know recruiting in hiring firing managing on challenging situations on creating a management structure. All all of that was It was just this really really stressful. Suppose the most stressful point in my life but it was the place where I got A. I don't know if you've heard of the ten thousand arose but I I got a good chunk of my ten thousand hours of of building. It managing a company in the in College Shar so you started it in Colorado or Massachusetts in Massachusetts so I ended up going to school Boston University and I went the two classes at Bu but other than that. I was working the entire time. So I don't know a single person from view at least that did you graduate. I did I'm a buckner so I I graduated highest honors but literally. I'd be sitting in the back. I'd have my laptop open. I'm like sending emails like dealing with issues. And then I'd have my notebook on the other side taking notes so it was a very multitasking signs. Do you regret that. I do not I did go to business school for the reason that I wanted in intellectual vacation and when I was in business school I really enjoyed myself. I worked at a venture capital firm. I wanted to. I thought for a little bit I wanted to be a VC. But I realized that. I'm an operator Raider. But I took like a machine learning courses like I just went like super deep in finance and I just had a blast in college or I'm sorry and business school so I made up a little little bit for the sacrifice. Is The path Painting Company Sell Painting Company business. School no I started a new company after the painting company when I graduated. And we It's called Bass Dot Com and We ended up Boo Shopping the company. All the way till seven years in The only money we took was twenty twenty million for maybe S. capital partners after it was already very successful and You know kind of more to the private equity stage but we actually actually wrote our own screen sharing software so this was way way back in the day and what our vision was is that you know. This was in the birth of spyware and like people's computers were constantly having issues so he said we want to have a PC care subscription service so that any normal consumer Ken Press a button and have remote tech support instantly without having to talk anybody and then every quarter. Our our technicians would remote into the computer and maintain it to prevent issues like changing oil in the car. And so that was our our brain child right out of college in down built that up and then I was like. Hey you know what I. It's been a lot of hard work. I WANNA go take this vacation Chicago and it was. It was wonderful two years. That's actually where I met my co-founder from next to company so awesome and so you said you intern. During between years one and two the I did YEP in Chicago. Ah note was in Silicon Valley so there's a A Pacific Northwest Venture capital firm. They do a series they investing called Voyager capital and. I actually really was just supposed to intern. But they kept. Were having me look at deals and do work when I went back to Chicago. Yeah so it really taught me a lot. I learned a lot about fundraising and how bad most pitchers are. I learned how painful it is to be on that side of the table when pitches a really bad And I also learned that. It's I mean no offense to anybody who is a V. V. C. but it's a very passive sort of world you're like you're trying to identify and pick value creators but you're not like creating value yourself in for for at least my disposition. I just love

Stefon Diggs on trade rumors: “There's truth to all rumors”
"But we will start in Minnesota we we stefan digs and his current situation the vikings white out missed practice for undisclosed reasons yesterday and it led to speculation about his future with the Vikings today today dig said he has not requested a trade but did admit there is true to all the reverse. He said that he's unsure. His agent has talked to the Vikings and what has transpired can't sit up here like everything is everything is okay his obviously not but but I can't say at this point it just trying to work. Do I feel like there's no matter how you sit up. I won't be saved speaking on that off off. Everybody's known to be rethinking the next one that team guy always predicting but for myself. I never made it just about me. I've never been that kind of so my resume persona kind of speaks for itself. I've never been to got to kind of be off. Be like me me me and wanting to have success. I WANNA have team. Success is always what I've been pushing them always without push so my language was stated saying whether I'm giving many opportunities not not not a lot. Have you asked for trade if you haven't communicated anything more so the conversation has been about teen and China had success food ah I haven't spoke to them you gotTa talk to play Sunday. hopefully then you play. I like football. I want to be part of I want to the apart play football on Sundays on CBS practice today you anticipate house and I feel a little bit better as to Yeah Courtney Cronin joins us now from Minnesota. She was there when dig spoke and Courtney. You heard him say. There's there's truth to all those rumors. What's your take a what exactly he met. Wendy he kept repeating that phrase multiple times throughout his media the reliability this morning and I think that that's him not completely closing the door that we're all he did say when I asked him straight out dicky requested trade you want lots traded and he said I had not communicated that and then obviously you have to follow up about his agent. You didn't fully close the door saying that no. I wanted to be your completely like that. Is there some uproot that there might be some validity what we've been hearing me Hainan seeing that this has been something that's been brewing probably for a little bit of time now so. I think what you were. Each phrase wants to continue to say it while he did say walk this year and he's been here for five years. He loves everything about teammates. I think he's questioned what you have to bring his question about whether he's feel value. He does have a role in the offense but it is minutes role than it was US last year and obviously you've been obsolete. I come in the steam because that kind of brings things to a head to where we're at right now. Wondering are we've seen the end of the era. Is this the beginning of something that we should be more concerned with or just going to blow over eventually because feel there's fire. I'm Greg it courtney. Thank you yeah I think in this case. It's fair to say there is some fire that smokes coming from Joe Joe. I'll ask you first of all about attentional trade market for digs if he were to move on well. I spoke to a team last night that I know would specifically definitely be interested in step on just because they expressly told me that and then last night I think an inquiry was made in they came back and said that they were told that Stefan was not going to be on the market and I see we're hearing during that today in terms of other people following up on the reporting what we do know about stuff on digs at here's a career worst three catches per game and five targets per game and and even though he's coming off a career-best production with over a thousand receiving yards and nine touchdowns his production in the two years prior to this season. It's still been under Adam Adam feeling and you know he's working with the new offensive coordinator and Kevin Stefanski and prior to that obviously was Pat Shurmur. WHO's the head coach of the giant so I think talk. You're looking at a receiver who feels like he can do more. You might even feel like he's the best receiver on the team and he's right. He is not a Mimi Guy in terms terms of how he portrays himself publicly. I've covered him a lot of times. I was there for the Minnesota miracle of so many of his games and by comparison you would definitely not put him out there but off in that sense but just listening to his words and the fact that he did leave the door open with certain things that he said he is letting you know that he is frustrated in that also think that that it fits within the era of athletes right now this season and last season being more vocal about their situations taking more control of where they feel like they can best flourish and I'm getting the hint although I have not talked to him directly or his agent that he's trying to let people know that he feels like everything is not completely kosher dill. It's funny you say that Joe Joe and I think Steve Young. You made the point two weeks ago with the genie sort of being out of the bottle I this is another example of a player. I think trying to sort take some control of a situation a situation that from his perspective is not working the way he'd like it to work yeah. I think it's a direct reflection on the quarterback play that that's been in Minnesota. Obviously his diminished role isn't because of injury or lack of talent. It's because the quarterback isn't getting everybody the ball right. Now I think last ask year when you see how everyone was involved in Adam dealing was getting the football step on digs with everyone was happy. Everyone was performing. Everyone was getting the ball. There were schematically. There were in situations where both of these guys were making big plays and that's what you're used to seeing from the Vikings and I think this year those players just aren't there and there's plays aren't there for those plays aren't necessarily there for Stefan digs for any of those past catches right now because of the quarterback play and I don't know if that's schematics. I don't know if that's simply the quarterback but I think he's unhappy with how he's being utilized and he's taking things into his own hands and to his credit. I've known for some time as well. He's never ever been me guy. He's never been so. This isn't necessarily about putting himself before the team I think at some point he has to look at his career and where he wants to go trajectory wise and make a decision and listening to talk. You almost felt like he had a little bit of emotion coming out when saying I'm a team guy and I'm not a me guy and I'm just trying to put the team. I listen as a football player. I know you can you've experienced this. We only have a certain amount of years and we only have a certain amount of time that we can go out there and play the game so you don't WanNa feel like that. You're wasting a season and I think that's why a lot of guys once they realize look. There's no chance for us to get to the playoffs this year. There's no chance that we're GONNA win in this division this year and teams on the flip side of that. I understand okay yeah. This season is pretty much over so let's try and get some value in some of these guys that are good football players and that's why we're seeing that more this year than maybe in years past. I thought the most interesting thing that he said Real quick when you're asking me if he was going to practice US I don't know I hope so. That's that was the less you know that he has expressed something to the team and he's maybe worried about how they reacted to. How that's what I'm thinking yeah I mean he he clearly was not one hundred percent sure you're next and Steve Young joins US now Steve. We have talked about this before given our conversations and I'm GONNA assume zoom. This doesn't surprise you that we're seeing another example of someone stepping up and saying this isn't working for me no players who are going to continue to demand what's going to be interesting. Is there is is there going to be a market and I think the Jalen Ramsey and if this situation does go forward and these guys are able to get to new teams I I think the ice will break because there are a number I mean everybody in the League has had moments star player now this star players that can do this because they're they're not. GonNa risk career other. You know non star players are not going to risk their careers to demand a trade this cut and so the star players going to say. I know there's a better place for me. I know there's a quarterback it'll throw me the ball and others office coordinator that will take care of me and that's going to continue to grow and I think this is a this is really the really important time Wendy right now awesome because of Jalen Ramsey doesn't get moved and digs does not get moved and the kind of kind of chill this whole thing and can stop it then this market will not not be kind of a burgeoning market but if they start to be able to be moved then everyone the legal realize I can make my way out of here and I wanna be somebody somewhere else and to the to the point just I it was victor. Rodman raw made it but the average career is three point two years in the NFL players are very aware of it. If I'm going to be great I'm going to be great right now. Well there's no question is a pivotal point in the league. We'll see digs by the way signed a five-year seventy two million dollars extension last year the thirteenth highest paid receiver currently in the

Popular fact when you're when you're very, very positive. Days. I looked to wait it the way to tell how a person's wired is two things. Fuck something up, royally and see how they react and go out go, I'm gonna go to car wash and then come back and go. I told your car and see what the reaction.

It's the guy who sits and talks to people about their finances and looks really Ernest as a beard and his sitting there with the fucking loser Cup on there going. Well, we've worked for a long time, but we've only saved eighty nine thousand dollars. I know that doesn't sound like a lot and he says, hey, that's your money. It is a lot. And then he inexplicably talking to people about their finances and looking very concerned took a long time I want that guys can't can that guy.
