"The united states as well. Yeah and that's that. Bush t shirt. The s and bush is in the shape of swastika. He also wore shirt often. That said George call george bush a war criminal and around this time. He said the way he said the following he said. I hate everything that comes from the united states. They hate it with all my strength. And that's one of the reasons why i called the article. diego maradona. The global south or comrade to the global south. I mean of course. Many people in the united states and europe sees diego maradona's a hero but he saw himself as a lines with the global south. He saw himself as a comrade to the global south and when he said that he hated the united states and everything that comes from it but he was really talking about. Is you mentioned. It was the bush. Years was the fact that at the time. Post nine eleven. It looked like the united states is going to invade country after country after country. Your bomb country after country country. And of course they did And but there was also a global resistance movement to at least keep them from going too crazy and diego. Madonna was really part of that resistance movement. Hugo chavez was part of that resistance movement able maradas was part of that resistance movement and that to. That's the found his his comrades among those who are under the boot of the united states. You know what. I also forgot to mention that as recently as two thousand fifteen as a as a means to try to promote peace in colombia he held a charity match in in order to promote the peace of they were taking place in colombia during this period between the government and the farc as well so is mine one one example after another that keeps popping up in my head here. United forgot about that. He took the streets during the argentine. Not so and i believe that was two thousand two. I believe Two thousand one. Two thousand two. Yeah yeah. I mean that that i mean people who are young. Don't know like how cataclysmic that was. And how peter workers we're taking over factories and and running them selves. I mean students were taking over university that mean pyre country was being turned upside down and the the people were you know local committees and neighborhoods. Were being put forward to run their communities and the people were putting forward alternatives to to free-market neoliberal capitalism. And donna was on the side of the people deaths right. Naomi klein describe argentina is that argentina is not a. It's not a poor country. It's a rich country that became poor during this period in time so this allows us to sort of stretch the conversation here by asking. How does maradona's passing in history of of these radical political views that we've just mentioned already pushback against the persistent wins of quote unquote keeping politics out of sports. That we still see today. I know this is you know one of the main things that you that you do with both the writing an in your in your radio work but again. It has to be stressed as insane idea of keeping politics out of sports. It just makes no difference in makes no sense during maradona's playing days and it makes no sense now in this day and age once again shows what it would ally that tro biz politics and sports not intersecting first of all. It's a lie anyway because if there were no political athletes. Sports is very political. You know it's rife with nationalism. It's right with militarism It's right with free market corporatism. So there is a politics. Sports whether athletes are political or not when people say keep politics out of sports. What they're really talking about is resistance politics the politics of people Trying to stand up for the been. Be a voice for the voiceless which sports has always had more than other forms of culture precisely because so many athletes have backgrounds. Like the eagle madonna. For the there there's a connection there And and they're handed a microphone because of their fame. Now oftentimes they just use that. Microphone to sell us products like shoes sneakers and low and sports drinks. But you have this tradition also of athletes who use that platform for something different. And what's so fascinating is that it's often our greatest athletes who have used this platform. I mean if you think about people like mohammed the greatest you think about bill russell arguably the greatest basketball player to ever live you. Think about jackie robinson you think about You think about. Of course. Billie jean king and her bringing the women's movement into sports you think about people like martina navratilova and lgbtq people into sports and highlighting the visibility and fighting for their rights. And then you think of somebody like diego madonna arguably the greatest player in the most popular sport in the world and this is a political person so for people say there shouldn't be politics in sports. They're really talking about the negation. The erasure of a great deal of sports history. And i would argue the most important part of sports history very pulse sports history so people i we should be very wary of people who echo that trope that. They don't want politics in their sports because sports is politics because sports is life and life is political. I would also add the name. Kareem abdul-jabbar in that conversation as well and even in brazil i would perhaps point out Madonna's more more polish we say equivalent in brazil as far as an athlete strong political views socrates during the seventies and eighties was also part of a great brazilian team during that period of time. As well so i mentioned earlier. That hearing him speak in spanish several times he was not the most polish person in the world quite a brutish and blunt in the way he spoke in a way he. He expressed himself let alone his political views. So do you believe since degrade debate for years. Now has been between madonna and away from brazil you believe. His imperfections made him the opposite of belay. In terms of corporate sh- corporate schilling sat out there corporate ceiling. Because you know. I've seen more pay late in commercials. I see during his playing days. And so yeah. I mean this is something about maradona's personality and this aspect between the the rivalry between the student cannot be ignored in my opinion. Oh i mean as genius never going to be in question when we do have mattered on being the greatest soccer player ever. The discussion is always mad on or is it palay. That's the question. And because of that palay who's eighty years old. So he's twenty years older than madonna. They had their series of viewed. Their verbal feud verbal jousts over the years and some of that is about rivalry between argentina and brazil but it's also because they are very different characters of people. I mean they both were born very poor. They both rose on the backs of their incredible talents. But pay as someone who has never really as would would sell anything that wasn't nailed down. And i was in brazil for the world cup. Bend ayla commercials every commercial palay sitting on a throne with with You know with our crown on his head talking about the low low savings at at a supermarket. You know. so that's how. He has chosen to use his fame over the course of his life. I mean he has done some political things like that. We shouldn't discount. Pay does have some of that history to But it's it's very different a matter donor with somebody who stayed true to a certain political ethos his entire life even through all the ups and for mental downs of his personal life But you know palay who chose a different way to use his fame and again. I don't want to denigrate. Palay and every athlete has to make a choice about whether or not they're going to be political and i don't believe we should be Tearing down athletes who don't feel like they're political people and pay like i said Does have some examples of his life of of attempting to the us as bad form to do political things there. The reality of the matter is that you couldn't be talking about two more different people when it came to how they saw using their fame and their platform. Yeah by no. Would anyone consider you know. Pay to be reactionary or counterproductive in whatever political believes. He had i do wanna point now that there's an interesting documentary on the new york cosmos team back in nineteen seventy s where the owners of the new york cosmos in trying to persuade palay to come to play in new york among the people that they connected with to try to convince him to come to. The us was henry kissinger. Who was the secretary of state you know. During this time in the seventies and who's who's dark history and len america you know speaks speaks volumes volumes to his criminality. if maradona. Consider this if maradona was being convinced to play in new york and among the people to try to convince was henry kissinger he probably would have again not being a polish person that he was probably would've cursing out room and said no thank you. I'm not cloudy with a walk out of the room. No question about it. I mean that meeting wouldn't have happened and madonna. Of course there were efforts to get him to try to play in. The united has never going to do that. Never ever oh yeah you know what i remember that there is recently is ninety. Six hundred ninety seven there were attempts to try to bring him to the us but you know his his skills were domitian diminishing by that time so i forgot all about that. Thank you for pointing that out and doing the courses conversation. You know. there's another story you know. In and of itself that's an hour long program and that is our tina's first title in seventy eight which was played in argentina and this was during the military junta's dictatorship and for all intensive purposes reporting and documentation of disseminate eight world cup. You know pretty much says that this was used as a propaganda tool by the junta to try to whitewash in criminal actions and the barbaric things that were done during this time but military junta it would have been nothing short of having egg interface. If they had somebody like maradona on this grand stage speaking out against a hunter during this period of.

He joins us today over. The phone is a pleasure and honor tabby on the shell dave zairean. It's great to be here. Thanks for having me is good to have you with us today and it's been a whirlwind of emotions both for me personally requested passing donor. Because i don't know what to began its <unk>. Figures that for me personally. I thought we would continue to live on in a way. He'll continue to do so. But you know we started this program by quoting water galeano and you wrote not one but two articles in the nation magazine on the donor and the first one did you did. Last week. Actually called it galliano as well. So let's begin their liberate on what you call it from galeano last week because you know for no other reason that it's a shame that gagliano is not alive. Today to perhaps best crystallize the importance of madonna nominee in the world and he probably best crystallize this. This passing perhaps a better than the both of us combined. Yeah i mean. I guess i would start just by reading the words of galliano about diego. Maradona eduardo gagliano is just the absolute master of words. Somebody who can make poetry and prose intertwined with one another and produce something perfect but this is what had wow diano wrote about diego maradonna that i quoted. He's written a great deal about maradonna. But this is what i quoted. No one can predict the devilish tricks. This inventor of surprises will dream up for the simple joy of throwing the computers off track. Trixie never repeats. He's not quick more like a short legged bull but he carries the ball so into this foot and he's got is all over. His body is acrobatics. Light up the field in the frigid soccer of the end of the century which detest defeat and forbids all fund. That man was one of the few prove that fantasy can be efficient and inside that praise of maradonna. somebody who's as the ball sewn to his split because <hes>. gagliano put so expertly.

As more and more countries left reflected an indigenous style of play and more countries started to play like one another and teams played like one another in a way.

Somebody who could play with the efficiency that's needed the modern game but also had the ability to make you dream about what the possibilities of a human being could do and be <hes>. On the soccer field and so in addition we encourage everyone to check out the writings of eduardo. Galeano as it pertains football because it's not just the xs and os. It goes way beyond that. Now even in regards to to madonna but the game itself as well. I'll just say on us. Wrote wrote a whole thin book about soccer called soccer in sun and shadow <hes>. Of course if available in spanish and english and it's the most beautiful faca writing that you can imagine. I would recommend that this month for anyone looking for a good book to read during the holiday season. What can you tell us about the poverty. Madonna grew up in that perhaps shaped his political views later. Because you know we we just mentioned the the professionalization of football as as a global sport in how it's become sort of predictable and cold as you mentioned there's galeano mentioned but he grew up at a time where it's still not as polished as we see it today and this is very important and understanding you know his views later in life correct. Oh absolutely at <hes>. Giggle maradona like to say that. He was born in the mud and never forgot where he came from and when he said he was born in the mud literally it was mud he grew up in the badio ueno status and he was the fifth of eight children and he grew up without running water or electricity and that always feel as if he was a kindred spirit with everybody on earth who lived in poverty in this globe.

There Will Never Be Another Maradona
"So add. We've seen this incredible outpouring of support for diego maradona's since he passed away last week to say goodbye to donna. Filing past the coffin and coming out the side crying country declared three days of national mourning. There were massive crowds showing up to see his body at the national palace in windows holidays by maybe about a mile from the of maradonna. And i'm not sure if people here in the us really understand how massive figure diego maradona is argentina. To explain that to people. I've been trying to explain it this week. Two americans and the thing that i landed on. Was you know you hear a lot of the mythology about the american dream right. But are essentially the argentine dream. There is not social mobility for people who are the visions which is kind of argentina equivalent. Savannah's there is not the social mobility for those people to rise and improve their lives except for one thing and that's football and diego who was born in visa theory which is very poor neighborhood. He is the proof of that. My father works such a lot to supporters. Eight of us children that made us. It made us very strong. It made everyone strong. Not only did he. Rise from the bottom rung of society abject poverty but he rose by fifteen. He was given an apartment by the club. He was blamed for argentinos juniors. He was supporting his whole. Family's whole family were living in an apartment. Thank god the one who could reach the highs until he became the most famous washington person probably apart from the pope. He austin on the world stage in a way that almost nobody ever could three. He's adult way he's beauties is something that was immortal. Seems like a lot of the mythology ising around. Maradonna comes from this idea of lp bay. Ed can you explain what that phrase means and its importance in. Argentinian culture. At the bay. Essentially it's it's the talented kid argentines in classical stories grow up playing on portrayals which are small kind of dog pitches and that's kind of a natural home of the p. bay which is this talented youngster. Often you know when i was in argentina i did some coaching with kids. And if you watch them play competitor like watching english kids play anguish. Kids play english football. You know it's been rough and they play in a very kind of permanent fashion the kids. They're all trying to dribble ten people there all falling over there all diving around in the peabody is essential oftentimes number ten. It's the guy around which the entire team operates. You essentially put several plus outlet who just defensively minded to make up for the fact that you've got this one super talented guy who's going to create everything and obviously every team that diego maradona was in was built around him. Put him in the middle. Give him the ball and just let something great happen quite often it

"Are you all familiar with the movie. Necessary roughness stephan josh. Yes dude of course. August twenty six th two thousand and nineteen fats after ball about women kickers after carli. Lloyd took some kicks with the yeah mentioned in there okay. Ireland played lucy. Lucy draper yep For the for when this movie came out in nineteen ninety-one texas state university did not actually exist. The program was based on smu. Which at that point had just gone through the death penalty but it was filmed it. If you're from texas knew it was filmed. It was then known as north texas state university and they were the same colors and all that good stuff. But at any rate they welcomed on lucy draper. Who was a female kicker. Who was also you know kathy ireland. Who is a sports illustrated swimsuit model and so on. I don't think people know who kathy allen is at this point probably not. Yeah she's been awhile maybe younger listeners. Do not yeah. They probably don't. She was a big deal in the late eighties and early nineties but at any rate she played the great lucy draper in that movie and so in honor of kathy ireland. And you know the game-breaker lucy draper we're gonna name my after balls after lucy. Trae today so steph. In who is your lucy. Draper in one of his excellent columns on diego maradonna roy smith of the new york times noted that there have been countless new maradona's or next maradona's maradonna of this country or the maradonna of that region or city or town. You're gay haji was the maradonna of the carpathians paul. Gascoyne was the maradonna of and the website beyond the last man counted fifty three soccer playing maradona's and a few in other walks of life. The indian maradonna the coptic maradonna the caribbean maradonna the maradonna of the alps the bosphorus the caucasus. The orient the nile the desert the east end. But the list is missing at least one. Maradonna the maradonna of greece. He is bicyles had zepa. He's he was still playing. When i lived in greece in the mid eighties. But i'd never heard of him. I didn't follow the greek league that closely. But now i wish i had had zip on a has a crazy story. One that requires a short lesson in modern greek history after world. War two greece. How to civil war between the us backed government army and the east bloc backed military arm of the greek communist party zip by parents were communist sympathizers and after the government won the war in nineteen forty-nine day along with tens of thousands of others fled greece as political refugees. They wound up in tashkent in. What is now. It was belkessam. That's where the greek maradonna was born in. Nineteen fifty four. Local clubs competed for him as a kid. And he debuted in the soviet premier league at age seventeen hudson had a low center of gravity insanely quick reflexes and that magical ability to make the ball do impossible things. He faked defenders out of their jocks. He spun in pivoted and juked and stuttered undiluted. He was dubbed nuryev. He was mesmerizing unstoppable to play. In the soviet league hubs ivana geese had to become a soviet citizen. He quickly made the soviet national team and played in four qualifiers for the nineteen seventy six olympics. but not the tournament itself where the. Ussr won bronze because he decided to return to greece. What happened was that in. Nineteen seventy four. The military junta up. That had ruled greece. Since the mid nineteen sixties collapsed. Political refugees were allowed to come home. How geese was greeted by a huge crowd at the train station in the northern city of thessaloniki. A safe landing for former refugees joined the club lease. It was a mid table team. Never a match for the big boys. Olympiakos panathinaikos eieck down in athens. But has he been a. He's was transformative. Time at least won the greek cup in his very first season. Big european clubs came after him arsenal. Porto lazio stood guard. The cosmos in new york did too at the same time that barcelona was paying three million pounds to acquire maradonna from argentina. Panathinaikos two million a year but he least refused all offers on was too valuable and he had signed a contract that he tried to but couldn't escape. He was stuck in thessaloniki until his last game. A uefa cup match in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. It was the only european tournament game of his entire career. How's he uses. International career was equally star-crossed. Shortly after arriving in greece. He joined the national team for a friendly against poland. But because of those olympic qualifiers for the soviets fifa wouldn't let him play for greece again. If not money we're the showcase of the world's best leagues are the chance to plan a world cup hudson on a he did at least get recognition in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. He joined franz beckenbauer. Mario campus and other world all stars in an exhibition against the cosmos at giants stadium in front of forty thousand people a third or so of them. Greek americans in two thousand four. He was named by uefa as greece's golden player of the previous half century. But in the end the greek maradonna was a victim of politics of business of the rules of the time during which he played. I definitely believe that. I have paid for my father's political ideas to the end of his life. Hud's on once said in my career. Everything was a mistake. Many say that others took advantage of my talent without me.

"Of the sec network. Narrating the moment before vanderbilt sarah fuller took the second half kickoff in bandies game against missouri becoming the first woman to play a major conference college. Football game a soccer goalkeeper. She helped lead her team to an sec championship the previous weekend. She's on the field for the vanderbilt football team wearing a play like a girl sticker on her helmet. Every one of the team's regular kickers was prohibited from suiting up because of covid nineteen contact. Tracing on that kickoff fuller knocked the ball thirty yards down the field mostly on the ground was a designed squib kick intense vanderbilt. Lost forty one to nothing. She did not get a chance to score. No field goal attempts. No extra points steph n. What do you make of the whole sarah fuller episode experienced. How was covered talked about thrilled for her. There's zero doubt that a soccer player like sarah fuller could learn how to kick a football and kick it. Well make field goals make extra points. No doubt in my mind. Vanderbilt was put in situation where they needed to find someone to be a rostered. Kicker had to already. Somebody pointed out on twitter had to be clinton's former. Nfl kicker. shayne graham. Who now coaches at the university of florida he said had to be someone cleared by the ncaa to play in a game. Had to be cleared by protocols. And there's no man's soccer team at vanderbilt so the blowback has been that this was a publicity stunt that it's not really meaningful but the reality was it was a reasonable choice by the vanderbilt football program to reach out to the soccer team and to our fuller to do this and it was also terrific public relations on. This was a great thing for them to do whether women are going to play football or not is to me beside the point the fact that they did this is a great message to soccer players to girls who wanna kick who wanna play Sure why not. I think no harm. No foul in terms of them wanting to do it. If even if they're accused of this being a publicity stunt which. I didn't think it was vanderbilt seizing on the positive. Pr fired coach. Derek mason the next day not not content to win the new cycle their all. Well i mean you know. I thought about that and i don't think anybody really cares about derek mason getting fired i got an. I don't think it really takes away from sarah fuller. Great i mean the thing is. Is that if you took any pleasure. Joy inspiration from sarah fuller's performance on saturday. It happened amid an absolute. Ask kicking from mizzou. You know what i mean. It wasn't like they lost. Forty-one did nothing to alabama. So i mean you're looking around you see the program you see what's happening out there. So yeah i mean derek mason. Getting fired a day later. Under those circumstances they got to have the positive press and they're moving on with their program in the way that you would expect an sec program too. I didn't watch the game. Because i don't make a habit of watching vanderbilt football if i can help it but i just against another one of those things without being too much of a broken record here it was. Predictably an opportunity created by corona virus man and so we had to be honest about. I'm happy for sarah fuller. I'm happy for anybody that took inspiration from it but it also has just again. A massive failure massive institutional failure that created this opportunity. And like she shouldn't have had to be out there because of the because of this. But i'm glad she was. But i mean if you wanna talk about like winning. The news cycle losing the news cycle. I mean this all happened because vanderbilt fucked up. Yeah and i think the other reason to be slightly less sanguine about this moment as like You know they had heard go out there and kick the ball a lot across and You know that created this kind of cognitive dissonance where you are. You know you listen to that big buildup by dave neal. She gets out there. It's a great moment. She squibb's the ball. And then we hear that this was like this great achievement for womankind. They didn't really let her try to kick the ball deep. And maybe they assessed like you know she wouldn't have kicked very far in the air and maybe it would have looked bad for her and they didn't want to embarrass her. I don't know maybe she would've have kicked in the end zone. This is all just conjecture and speculation but stefan. I think there's a little bit of a risk there in over praising what she did on the field while making sure that we talk about how great it was that you've got this opportunity how it is inspirational for girls. How women clearly have the ability to kick a football. If given adequate time in preparation and training we can believe all those things and think all of those things without looking at that cac and say like you know that was amazing as an individual moment on a football field guy was very circumspect thought in my introductory comments there because of the reality was that i did think that the predictable right build up and overreaction by conventional media was a little bit i rolling and counterproductive. My problem as a fake kicker. Is that your your america's favorite fake kicker. Thank you is that yeah. They sent her out there to do something that wouldn't necessarily make her look good as kicker and there are reasons for that one. It's hard to kick a football just because you play soccer just because you're a goalkeeper just because you can punt the ball sixty yards does not mean that you can kick a football off of a tea or off the ground and do it as well as a as a as a trained kicker. She had no training. She had a couple of days to go kick some balls with the team. Could she made an extra point. Absolutely could have kicked ball into the endzone. Probably not kicking off his really hard. It takes a lot of work. It takes a lot of practice remember last year when carli lloyd banged a few from fifty five and everyone was going crazy. We'll was taking like a six step approach field goal. That would not happen in a football game. This takes training. It takes wraps it takes practice and their own in fact there is not. She's a woman. The relevant fact is she's a soccer player who's never off layer never kicked a football before two days before this game also. It wasn't what she was a standout soccer player. Either which was actually kind of surprised to me. Like i did not know the like. She didn't actually have a much of a collegiate track record. Before this season and soccer you know what i mean like. She had barely played up until this season. So we're not like every other are deficient one athlete. She was incredibly good on her local high school and local club team. Doesn't she's not going to be on the. Us national team right right so the problem to send her out there and have her kicked the ball. Twenty five yards or thirty yards and punch it the way she punched which is a very soccer motion is what she utilized and the coach said afterward that was designed. We wanted her to feel comfortable to kick the ball the way she was used to. Kicking it. and you're right josh..
"diego maradona" Discussed on Slate's Hang Up and Listen
"Yes our friend. Nate jackson pointed out to me over the weekend that he wonders whether the broncos would be in the situation if pat bolan was still the owner of the team that they've got a muddled ownership situation right now. The league isn't particularly happy about either. And that might have made it easier to make an example of the broncos and make an example of these players to broncos also are good and aren't going anywhere so it's not like losing. This game is going to change their status and in the playoff race. Orson welles certainly benefited the saints competitively and write their chances of getting home field advantage in the playoffs. If there are playoffs right yeah. The saints is division. Rivals probably would have a lot more to say about the imperative advantage here right because they're the ones that you know. They they took an l. Because the saints basically got a week off. And i can totally understand them. Being furious about that. And the other factor. Here joel is that it's not just. The competition was de legitimized here. The game was a joke at some point is dangerous to put lesser athletes on the field competing against the fastest strongest most ferocious linemen and linebackers in the play football. Kendall hinton the quarterback who stepped in wasn't going to get killed out there but he didn't belong out there playing quarterback. How many players are the baltimore. Ravens gonna play with if they play on tuesday night they had twenty guys who were sidelined by positive covid tests or exposures. This doesn't trend in the right direction. And it just makes the nfl look bad. It does affect the competition and at some point it does put athletes at some risk. Kendall in wasn't upset about getting to play rita's quotes. There was a good story in the athletic tiktok about how he found out and what they did to prepare. But he couldn't do anything to prepare couldn't take any snaps. He was reading. Plays off of paper and watching video. That's insane to try to do that. And compete in the nfl on no notice after. You haven't played down as a quarterback in like two or three years. I mean the. Nfl has already decided that there's an acceptable amount of risk that they're willing to put their players through by playing in the first place. I mean again. People have talked a lot about it. But the jaguars have a running back. Ryquell armstead. who's been hospitalized twice after testing positive corona virus. So they've already said to themselves. We're willing to risk our players and the and you know for what it's worth. The players agreed to it. I mean they. They're the ones that reach an agreement with the league to play under these circumstances. So i'm torn. i've been torn all weekend about whether or not the broncos should have been made to play that game or not. And i still haven't really figured out. Why fall on it because the broncos signed up for this. They said that this is what they wanted to do. Roger goodell had worn them early in the year as josh pointed out that there would be competitive disadvantages and the games will go on in spite of it and the broncos knowing all of that and their quarterback room knowing all of that would not particularly diligent. And i know that that's a human nature thing you know. It kinda reminds me of like my parents. They just think that if you wear a mask and you go someplace like that protects you for all time that that's just like oh you know everything's fine. I got a mask on but people are not still taking the same sort of precautions that they were earlier but the other piece of it like you said stephan. That football is so damn dangerous man. The phillip lindsay is the running back went out in the second half with a knee injury for the broncos and yeah i mean just imagine being a bronco that day like everybody was compromised because that sort of competitive disadvantage puts a strain burden on. Everybody else you gotta offensive line that has to perform against a defense knowing that. There's a lid on the offense like they're basically going to be run blocking all day long so the defense is prepared for that. The running backs are running into eight. Nine boxes the receivers are turned into essentially glorified tight ends. Then you've got the defense that has to be on the field all damn game long because their offense can't keep the ball can't sustain any momentum they can't put a drive together so the defense is out there all game long so it. Just i don't know man. I the thing is is that it's all your picking from bad decisions all the way around right like there's not. There wasn't a good decision to make. I guess cancelling would have been the right decision in the whole scheme of things. But that's not what the nfl in the nfl. Pa have signed up for this year. So you can kinda understand how it happened right well when you started off toll and saying you know the. Nfl has made peace with the fact that they're they're willing to put players a lot of danger. I thought you were talking about just the regular. nfl. I think there's something to that that like. There's kind of like a you know. Buy the ticket. Take the ride aspect for all of this. It's like whether you're player or a fan or a team like the whole concepts of professional american tackle. Football is that you're willing to buy into injury. Risk both long term and short term and so the way that they've handled cove. Ed is unsurprising given that larger context. I mean like what would you expect that the nfl man. We really cared deeply about the idea that a player could possibly get sick or injured gossip. Stage these games now like that was never going to happen but you know i think you could make an argument in isolation and what the nfl did here was with. The broncos was justified in keeping with the logic that they had laid out at the beginning of the year. But then. I look at the ravens outbreak. And there's a story about you. Know i think i read this on a story and espn dot com. That says the ravens outbreak. Which as of sunday had resulted in confirmed positive tests for at least twenty players and staff included a strength and conditioning coach. Who didn't promptly report symptoms were consistently wear a mask. The teams disciplined him. Needless to say protocols designed to minimize spread won't work if they're not followed. I mean that to me suggests denials. On like okay. you're going to obviously. Every outbreak is going to stem from. You know somebody getting the virus and maybe you can look at that person and say they weren't wearing a mask one hundred percent of the time or maybe they should have known what their what their symptoms were. But like that's just what's going on everywhere in america and to act like unusual like how could we possibly anticipated that the raven strength and conditioning coach wouldn't consistently wear a mask like that's the whole reason that there's an nba bubble. That's the whole reason why you know if you have people go to work or you have restaurants. Oh ben that the virus is gonna spread and for us to just like sit here and accept this idea coming from the league office that like well. It's not our fault that like you know. Obviously it's your fault right. I mean where does it stop. You know it's not the ravens. It's not our fault. It's the ravens fault. It's the raiders fault. It's the titans fault. It's the broncos fault. we're already at what. That's an eighth of the league who are to blame. That isn't the nfl's from the nfl headquarters. We should also note. The saints got fined five hundred thousand dollars in the seventh round. Pick for celebrating after a game without mass ave five out of thirty two. And there's more that. I'm sure i have neglected to remember here. Clearly i mean. I think it's clear at this point. Because if you're the if you're roger goodell on the nfl. You're.

Thousands of people congregated in streets and in front of the studio sao paulo to sing swap stories and mourn. He was the first power figure that united the world of football says kantor everyone regardless of their nationality wanted to see him play because of his magic. He made argentina famous around the world. He made napoli famous around the world. It's very hard for any reader to understand what he meant for. Napoli the very poor southern city in italy that no one paid attention to and suddenly this kid put napoli on the map playing soccer and rebelled against the industrial north and beat the powerhouses of milan and event events. An inter. who were the more important and powerful teams not only in italy but in the and europe especially maradona hailed from a shantytown on the outskirts of buenos aires and made his professional debut with the club. Argentinos juniors when he was fifteen. I was in the stadium for his first game. Says in reggae mail. A florida psychologist. Who grew up in buenos aires. Now that's become a myth. A million people now say they were there. But i really was. I promise mel talked to his niece in buenos aires on wednesday she said the streets were eerily silent like a cemetery during the day of madonna's death but nineteen eighty six argentina england world cup quarter-final the game in which maradona certified his legend carried particular significance for argentina following the nineteen eighty two falklands war england prevailed in the military conflict with argentina over sovereignty of the archipelago. Some three hundred miles off of argentina's southern coast maradona scoring the first goal with the hand of god and the second goal being the greatest golden history. It gave the argentinians some type or redemption against the english says kantor on the world cup stage and donna could not replicate the nineteen eighty six title while he was still brilliant at the nineteen ninety world cup. Argentina lost to west germany in the final in nineteen ninety four in the united states. He was kicked out of the tournament for testing positive. For ephedrine better donnas demons were well-documented. He struggled with drug addiction. Voracious appetites before wednesday. He dodged several near death experiences. Diego had died so many times before. Kantor it's incredible that he lived this long despite his imperfections. Maradona will be mourned. The world over champions league games had moments of silence. One coach recommended that madonna's number ten be retired throughout world soccer. The vatican announced that pope francis was keeping madonna in his prayers. Undoubtedly for me. He is the greatest player of all time says cantor. He played in an era much different than today. It was more physical game. He was butchered in every single game that he played and he excelled.

It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit <hes>. Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now <hes>. The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title <hes>. There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back <hes>. Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian <hes> jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen <hes>. Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us <hes>. Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level <hes>. clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football <hes>. On monday madonna was <hes>. Was an absolute exception. He was <hes>. Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most <hes>. Amazing play on the planet. He was a <hes>. A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was <hes>. Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy <hes>. Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very <hes>. Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his <hes>. Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and <hes>. What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples <hes>. That people will never forget that. So imagine today <hes>. You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with <hes>. Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days <hes>. Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits <hes>. And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace <hes>. the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big <hes>. Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty

"At very young age he goes to Naples essentially because they're the only team that will by him but Napoli Naples are the poorest city probably in Europe probably the highest murder rate and crime rate in Europe and high up there in the world massive kind of Comoro gang warfare going on at the time. They've never won anything and they get the most expensive player in the world. Naples is full of streetwise characters and GEICO GEICO finds his element. He finds the city that made for really and he does incredibly well with the team and he brings the team up to the championship. The only time they've won they've never won before foil and they've never won since that's why he becomes elevated as the good like character. We're talking with US capacity about his new documentary. Diego America people who are supporters of England would remember probably very unfortunately the hand of God goal in one thousand nine hundred six World Cup clearance Camara Donna with shorten the hi. I'm Donna celebrating and the polls going to be given but what people forget in that game the other goal he scored which is considered one of the greatest goals in the history of professional soccer aw it's in the film that to love and hate and to know jiggle `Maradona is to see those goals and you know everything about it yeah in way football. There's a saying in England and it's a game of two halves and so the film is about a two sides of the Eggo in many ways. It's about the beauty and it's about achieve. He's he's a genius. He's a devil and the whole thing about him is his character as these two sides to him and you need one to have the other. You can't basically separate him. You know you've got this. He's a really loving friendly guy really really lovely sense of humor but he's got an incredible darkness through personality as well and so yeah the idea of that match really he's achieved the law in his career but that game against England is a reason why he's loved and hated there is obviously tremendous amounts of footage of Diego Maradona a plane football or we call it. Do It do it. Do is cool football but there's also archival footage that you have in this film that makes the movie. How did you come upon this footage. Who collected it? And where did you find it. In the process of making this documentary somebody got in touch saying there is footage out there that we have gone John Potentially access to filmed by to Argentinian cameramen who were hired by Diego Maradona's agent in one thousand nine hundred eighty one when he's really young and this guy I thought Maradona is GonNa be a star so I'm going to film it starts filming him with two cameramen who follow him from Buenos Aires through Bacelona. They go to Naples on the Pitch Hitch of the pitch. They're in the car when he's traveling. They're the guys filming him arriving at Annapolis Stadium that amazing footage when he's walking into the Coliseum. The cameraman got fired never got paid. It probably went off with the tapes one hour outside of Naples. There's this guy with a room full of you. Matic yourself video format for natives u matic tapes of Maradona have never it'd been seen before how many hours hundreds of hours my producer kind of went through and he came up the number five hundred but it could be seven hundred half of the footage we found out set of Naples news then we realized there's more it wasn't all this and then we had to figure out who's good and we found Diego. Maradona's ex wife had it in a trunk in their apartment in Buenos Aires said shots shots in the film where he gets out of a car and reverse show we found on the other side road in Buenos Aires. So what does that give you as a filmmaker. If you're trying to reveal some version of a mirror Donna that's not known I would say that the onset in these films we've we've sent a amy and we Maradonna is. I love to kind of study them. When I'm doing the research I'm looking at it is I'm looking at here face shape their body shape and trying to guess what year resists were what period of the life when they happy when they smiling. When is the light go from there is what happened? Something's gone wrong. They're lying and you can see what a tells are and so me what the footage gives. You is the opportunity and the way all of my films have been made is to stay in the president at that particular moment in time to follow the characters and to see their faces and really the audience can just understand a story by looking at them because you're seeing the real kind of on on an unfettered version of them. This isn't material that was shot. Even though the idea was to make a movie is not the kind of social media of now where people go back and look at their phone and satellite away away my face looks delete this was shot and forgotten about so he's thirty years old thirty five years old footage some of it and you're looking at it and you gain. He's ignoring the camera sin as naturalism realism to him even though he's one of the most famous people so that's what I'm trying to do is trying to get a naturalism characters to show the story and then to give you the context through the voices the interviews I do to understand what's going on people who I think no Maradona have this image and it's a visual image in their mind of him as overweight struggling with addiction and yet. There's a period when he's playing in Naples where he is as fit as any athlete on the field he was the best. There's no denying denying it. What what he would say is just imagine how good it could have been if I had trained like everyone else had kind of that level of professionalism but that wasn't him. I mean that's the the important thing about this film. A lot of people know the ending they know he became a beast and he had a cocaine problem and various other things. What I'm interested in is the journey of where were they before you know the version of the egg on you've not seen or you don't know about that's not on twitter or on instagram but actually the soccer player when he was at his key prime prime years when he became the best player in world what he achieved even though he has a massive presence in an ego he was an incredible team player and took a not a great. Argentina team and they won the World Cup and he took a very ordinary Napoli team and beat the strongest teams in Europe and the world at a time which would northern Italian teams richest teams in the world at the time. There's there's footage toward the end of the movie about Maradona very present day and it's it's difficult to watch to see what has become of him when you were thinking about how you wanted to end the movie and what what Maradona might take away from the film. What was it that you were focusing on. I mean it's a real challenge because he's the one of the reasons for doing the film was it was very different to Tamie. They tragically died very young spoke to a lot of people or biographies and Writers and people who've spent time moving saying the minute. You presented a publisher on a minute. You send you know this is the film that I've made about him. Something will happen tomorrow way.
