"And the strange thing is, is that my understanding is that Kyrie's people got together with him at the beginning of the year. It said, hey, you're about to be a free agent. People have really forgotten what a great basketball player you are. Let's make it, let's make this year about that. Let's not have any distractions. Let's not let our social media posts. I don't know if we said that directly that way. But it was basically, let's get back to playing basketball and put all the other stuff aside. Though that, there's a market for you when you hit free agency. And that apparently did not sell on deaf ears. I will also say, I have not been overly impressed by the way that Joe Tsai has handled all of this. He's been rather erratic in his decisions too. One minute he's supporting Steve Nash. The next minute they go two and 5 and he is and he's being fired. So that's where it takes a lot of people to create a mess like this. And it appears that quite a few people have pitched in. Rick, I'm going to get to basketball in a second, but just to tag it. When we talk about the nets and how they've reacted to all of this stuff, we talk about the league taking nearly a week to issue a statement and don't use kairi's name in it. And then all the people that are normally up in arms about anything in terms of human behavior and how we look at other fellow men and women have been curiously silent during this entire episode. Well, I think one of the things that we've become numb at this point to all of this stuff. And there's a feeling like, okay, let the news cycle turn 24 hours and see if it's still around. Or is it just going to go away? And how much do we have to address? So we know it's wrong. Everybody knows it wrong. Do we need to state that fact? Or does everybody get it? That what Kyrie has said, whatever the case may, whatever the issue may be. Like, do we have to react? And I believe that's why you saw the delay in part because it was, and some of it is trying to work behind the scenes. Trying to resolve things and not have to go out there and make statements because in or take action. Because in some ways, making statements and taking action only breathes more oxygen into whatever the issue is. And this is the kind of issue that there's no you would think you would hope that Tyree or anybody else would look at this and say, well, this is just wrong. And understand that. They wouldn't take punishment. It wouldn't take a statement and to that end. I mean, we have all these we have NBA players who were very quick to talk about Robert sarva. And Donald Sterling and take stands. What's been really quiet, obviously the MVPA put out a statement. They didn't put out a statement and named tyrese specifically.

"To thank for him is this is who he is. If you want to make another comparison to the other end of the economic spectrum, it's kind of like when people start talking about, hey man, this cold thing, COA, L Cole. It's over, man. Y'all need to get in here and start learning how to code. But they're like, yo, but this is what we do. This is who we are, right? Dan Snyder, who he is, is the owner of the commandos, right? That's who he is when he walks in all these rooms. That's the reason why when you say his name, you don't have to explain who he is. His identity is firm in that. The other thing is, it's not like he'd be selling high, right? Like, yes, in theory he'll be selling high because he paid like $800 million for the team and now it's worth over 5 billion. But he would be selling in shame. He would be selling because they told him to sell and he don't want to sell. Like that was the thing when Donald Sterling where they made him sell the team. They're like, oh, what a punishment. He gets these billions of dollars. Huge punishment for that man because that's the man that don't sell nothing, right? Like you never going to be able to bring these rich people to they knees unless you throw them in jail. That's not going to happen. But with him, he does not want to give up his team. You're like, yeah, well, you got all the money, but what I'm going to do now, right? Where am I going? What room am I getting into? And so for the league, I found this to be interesting because the point that they bring up and I don't think that people think enough about this one. He's dragging down the bottom line. Like, they think about this, right? They built that stadium and they built that stadium in 1997. I want to say is the year that it opened. It's too big. It built it with 90,000 seats. 90,000 seats is too many seats, but it ain't like they never sold a bad boy out before, right? Capacity at that stadium now has been taken down to 64,000 seats. In a top ten market, they can only sell 64,000 tickets at most to an NFL game. That's it. That's it.

"A lot of folks, when they saw the way this played out, naturally drifted to thinking about what happened with Donald Sterling. About 8 years ago. Where he was caught on tape saying some terrible things, some racist comments. Why can't you be walking publicly with black people? Why? These are the best to you? Does it matter if they're white or blue or yellow? Yeah. It matters. And was summarily banned from the league by Adam silver for life. There's a couple of things here that I should point out. One, the NBA and the owners did not force Donald Sterling to sell. There is a process that exists to force NBA an NBA owner to sell. You would need a three fourths majority of owners, basically to vote him or her out of the club. But a vote was not taken for Donald Sterling. So he was banned for life. And so he could have in theory continued to own the team, but not been allowed to have any connection with the team and not been allowed to show up anywhere until he had passed away. Banding is different from being forced to sell. That is a big distinction that Adam silver has made. That's true. His wife, Shelley, went through a court proceeding to have him, I believe, declared not mentally capable of making his own decisions. She won that court process and then she sold the team essentially out from under him. And just to be extra clear here then, our collective memory about how Adam silver kicked Donald Sterling out of the league, which is a popular conception. Kicked out of the league after three decades. Well, you're saying here is that that didn't actually happen. Not not literally in that way. Yeah, he didn't take the team away from him. He just made sure he would never be seen again. You know, you hate to try to go into this shades of gray, but like, there is a difference between the scoundrel that Donald Sterling is. And the jerk that Robert sarver is. And it's the difference between the two of them that we're trying to reconcile with and that the NBA is trying to reconcile with. In the case of Donald Sterling, it was without question worth it to put financial and reputations on the line to get rid of him. In the case of sarver, it is for some people and it

"Scrutiny, minor league baseball players become union members and Roger Federer Cole to the career and piers Tom Goldman joins us John, thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me. I want to begin with Robert sharper, who owns the NBA's Phoenix Suns and the WNBA's Phoenix mercury. He got a one year suspension and $10 million fine this week. After an investigation, by the league concluded, he had committed workplace abuse and repeatedly repeatedly used racial slurs. Can the league force him to give up the team? Well, Scott, there is precedent, 8 years ago, the NBA and commissioner commissioner Adam silver banned for life LA clippers owner Donald Sterling and essentially forced him to sell the team after Sterling's racist comments came to light. This week silver said the situations involving Sterling and server are dramatically different. Silver said Sterling exhibited blatant racist conduct directed at a select group of people. He said servers language and behavior was indefensible, but it was not as blatant and silver noted two things. Removing a team from an owner's control is a very involved process and the investigation report said servers conduct was not motivated by racial or gender based animus. But if you read the report, what he said was reprehensible. Yeah, exactly. I mean, server several times used to slur for black people when he was recounting how others use that slur. And he kept using it after being told he shouldn't. He made crude sex and sexist jokes. He yelled and swore to employees. And the fact that he's retaining ownership for now has prompted critics to say, and nothing new here, Scott. Being a rich man allows you to play by a different set of rules. And what about reaction around the league? Anger that the punishment didn't go farther, players like LeBron James, Chris Paul, a player on server sons, spoke out, a minority owner of the sons called for server to give up the team, and at least one major sponsor says it won't continue its relationship with the sun's if sarver does. The NBA is considered the progressive major sports league, but this is a challenge to that image, especially with the growing criticism. Here's you this week, minor league ball players now have, you know, they've said union union. And this didn't seem to be a possibility until fairly recently did it. Yeah, that's right. You know, but in the last few years, thanks to minor league advocate advocacy groups, media coverage, pressure on MLB, including from Congress minor leaguers have made gains and now that historic moment of union under the umbrella of the powerful, major league Players Association, minor leaguers will collectively bargain with MLB. Hopefully this off season. For much of

"For this? Could it be over? Do you do something in protest here? But I do understand what the commissioner is saying about Donald Sterling. Now, what I would want to know is if we didn't have Donald Sterling. And I know this isn't a fair question for the commissioner, but I would still want to ask him, if we didn't have Donald Sterling, that situation. And you just had Robert sarver because we're comparing it with Donald Sterling and the clippers. Well, it's not the same. I agree with that. If you just had Robert sarver and we just looked at that and didn't compare it to Donald Sterling. Is that enough to then start the process to get rid of that team? That's what I would want to know. Because there's racism, there's misogyny in here. You are the owner of a WNBA team. You have African American GM African American head coach, a lineup predominantly African American. And he's joking about these things. $10 million is nothing. One year where you can't be the owner. I mean, I'd loved it for the commissioner to go, you know what? You can't make any profits this year. Phoenix Suns don't make any profits this year. Okay, this isn't a $10 million fine. Now I know that that's the max, but pay your employees, but you're not going to be he's still going to benefit. You still got a really good team. Revenue sharing. So okay, what? I don't get to go to the game and sit with my buddies and high 5 players, okay? That doesn't seem like a pretty tough road there. You got to walk down. Yeah, Pauly. Do you think the commissioner over the past couple of weeks when you knew what the investigation was wrapping up and what it was going to show? Reached out to owners to gauge the room if we decided to have a vote or is that dangerous to do? I would say you probably have off the record comments with a couple of confidence. Confidantes. That people you trust and then you're able to go, hey, where do you think this is headed? Where should this be headed? You also want to go in there and go, hey, let's do a mock press conference here. Ask me these questions and then let's try to formulate answers. Because I'm going to be asked these questions. And I want to be ready just so it sounds like we're buttoned up. Yeah, you can't go into a vote like that blindly, right? Or you can't initiate that just on your own. There has to be some kind of process there, right? I would think so. He does say that the owner of the Phoenix Suns Robert sarver is on notice. Did anybody ask him what's on notice me? Like double secret probation? Silver goes, I think what we saw in the case of Donald Sterling was blatant racist conduct directed at a select group of people. While it's difficult to know what's in somebody's heart or in their mind, we heard those words. In the case of Robert sarver, I'd say first of all, we're looking at the totality of circumstances over an 18 year period, which he owned these teams, and ultimately we made a judgment I made a judgment that in the circumstances in which he had used the language and behavior that while, as I said, was indefensible, is not strong enough. It's beyond the pale in every possible way to use language and behave that way, but that it was wholly of a different kind than what we saw in that earlier case. See, I want to take it away from Donald Sterling because it's not Donald Sterling was saying to his girlfriend on audio, I don't want you hanging around with black basketball players. And he was known as a slumlord, so he did target minorities. This wasn't, hey, I'm having fun, and I'm quoting lyrics from a song or I'm saying something to a woman walking down the hall. About breast enhancement. It is different. But separate it from Donald Sterling, because you can fall back on that and say, well, it's not Donald Sterling. Well, you're right. It's not. Therefore, I can't take away your team. Yeah, time. Can you envision a player boycott season right around the corner, something beyond angry tweets about the verdict from the commissioner? I guess? I don't know. I mean, it's not my personal battle. If I played for him, I would certainly get together with my teammates. If I'm the head coach, I would get together with my players. And I would say, let's be professional. Is there a way we can go about this? How do you want to go about this? I would be inclusive with my players if I'm Monty Williams. I just think about this. The punishment that he has to stay home is actually counterproductive. What if the NBA did the opposite? No, you have to be on the sidelines for every game. You have to answer for this. You have to be at the game and if a fan wants to come and talk to you and give you their opinion. Yeah, you have to be on the sidelines. You can not miss any games. He gets to sit in Paradise valley and kick back and watch his 8 inch TV and keep the money coming in. Like you said, there is no punishment here. Zero. Yeah, it's almost like making where the scarlet letter put him out there in the public. He gets to hide his house. Yeah. Well, the commissioner and I do like Adam silver. I think he's very level headed, but I would like to know what that means to be on notice. And if you separate it from Donald Sterling, because I have to look at just him, not Donald Sterling, this. Because if you do that where you go, well, it's not, it's not as bad as that. Well, okay, if you start handing out discipline based off of, hey, what's not as bad as ray rice? Not as bad as Ben Roethlisberger, I mean, these are extreme moments there. LeBron James was not pleased with this. No place for misogyny sexism racism in any workplace. Don't matter if you own the team or play for the team. We hold our league up as an example of our values and this ain't it. Chris Paul had some things to say. The conduct, especially towards women, unacceptable, and must never be repeated. So now you put the pressure on the players to do something. At one month for the season starts. Final hour coming up, we'll talk about the matchup, chargers chiefs tonight, Chris Sims are good buddy. Pro football talk will join us more phone calls as well.

"Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Is your team number one? Probably not. Not my fault. If you're a Seattle Seahawks fan, you might enjoy our newest T-shirt that I think is up on the website. Go to Dan Patrick dot com. Got a lot of great stuff there. Adam silver met with the media, this after making the announcement that he was going to find the Phoenix Suns owner Robert sarver $10 million in suspend him for a year. Met with the media and I think the media wanted to try to tie Robert sarver with Donald Sterling in what happened when Sterling was running the clippers. Here is Adam silver the NBA commissioner. It was more than nature of how we learned about it, how the public was aware of it. The way it was disseminated so quickly over the Internet and I think there was a realism to it, you know, that exists when you have audio of something. And that's the key. With Donald Sterling, you had audio. And it felt like what he was saying. He's not joking. You know, there are, there's testimony that Robert sarver in his own world, his sense of humor, he was joking about this, or he was quoting somebody else when he used the N word. The semantics of it, with Robert sarver, probably lean towards him as opposed to Donald Sterling, didn't get that benefit and didn't deserve one. Then Adam silver was asked, what about taking away the Phoenix Suns from Robert server? I don't have the right to take away his team. I don't want to rest on that neat legal point because of course there could be a process to take away someone's team in this league. It's very involved. And I ultimately made the decision that it didn't rise to that level. Okay. The commissioner Goodell kind of hid behind this too with Daniel Snyder. Hey, I can't take away his team. Can you start the process? To take away his too. Like, that's what I'd be curious about. And I would have asked him, can you ask the other owners here? You can't, you can't take it away. They can take it away. Now it's going to be the onus is on these players. Whether it's the NBA or WNBA, with Phoenix mercury in the Phoenix Suns, now what do they do? Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns. Former NBA player association president. He had things to say. LeBron James had things to say. What happened? We're a month away from the season. What happens? Now the pressure is on the players. Are you going to stand

"If you're called a racist, be fighting this? Yeah. When it comes to removing an owner, does the Adam silver have exclusive decision with that? Is it a two thirds vote? Do we know I could reach out to the NBA? I'm curious if that's a unanimous three quarters vote who, among the owners, how does that work? I don't know. Why don't you ask? Don't you look at? I would imagine you would have X number of owners who would have to vote in favor of getting rid of you. It has to be a three fourths vote of the ownership. 75% or more of the ownership had to vote to remove an owner. And the commensurate can put that together. Just like with the NFL, is the NFL, the commissioner puts that forth, then the owners vote. Yeah, is it going to be more pressure on the sun's players? Or the NBA itself? That's the only thing. I think the players. I mean, Chris Paul, former player association president. Yes. I think it puts them in an unfair situation because now those players are going to be asked, you're going to do anything? Hey, do you want to play for him? Remember all the players had said, I don't want we don't want to play for the clippers. We don't want to play for Donald Sterling. You know, I don't know if that's going to be the case, but you do now put the onus on the players, and that's not fair. And Chris Paul was on the clippers during the Donald Sterling situation, so he's been through this before, unfortunately, so he's probably got to, but everybody agreed that Donald Sterling needed to go. There wasn't a dissenter there. I don't think they'd say, you shouldn't, I don't think you should lose his team. It felt like everybody was like, yeah, of course he's got to go. The president is weighing in. Jordan's weighing in. LeBron and Kobe.

"Their report is going to validate what was in the ESPN report. And if that's the case, we're leaping several steps forward here, Chris, but if the NBA in its law firm that it's hired, can validate confirm even 80% of what's in that story. I don't see how Robert sarver can possibly remain as majority owner of the Phoenix Suns. But we're really from that. See, that's where, I mean, my mind immediately goes there, right? Because I think there's going to be some kind of penalty leveled at Robert sarver. I don't know what it is. Short of expulsion. Short of expulsion. I mean, look, expulsion, it's a big step to take. All the things Robert sovereign being accused of are reprehensible. I find it disgusting, despicable. But in the absence of audio or video, I don't know how you can force a guy to sell the team. Now, internally in Phoenix, there could be a revolution of sorts amongst the minority owners that are there. That could you could see something like that and uprising internally in Phoenix. But the idea that the league could force Robert sarver to sell his team based on what we've read, it doesn't quite line up. You remember something Mark Cuban said in the aftermath of the Donald Sterling expulsion. Cuban said it was a slippery slope to start doing this. I think Cuban probably knew that there were Robert sarver out there that, you know, owners have their owner's behaving badly. Quite frankly, in the NBA. So I can't really see unless something new comes out. I can't see a scenario where Robert sarver is forced to sell the team by the NBA. Because one thing we've learned from this Howard is that Sarah's gonna fight back? Like Sterling didn't really fight back like he kinda knew he was cornered on that when when that came out largely because the audio was out there. But sarver has been pushing back every step of the way. And I can't imagine that he'd go quietly into the night. So my guess at this point. That's all it is, really is a guess because the NBA is going to go through the motions of this investigation. Is that we're going to see a substantial either financial penalty, loss of draft picks. I don't know how it will work, but I think we'll see something level that savor that comes short of being forced to sell his team. Well, let's not forget a really critical element of that Donald Sterling saga several years ago, which is that not only was there a smoking gun, the recording of Donald Sterling saying these horrific things, which helped expedite the entire process of removing him because there was no ambiguity there was no he said she said there were no anonymous sources. It was a tape. It was clear as day, and it did enable the league to move forward in a very judicious manner and expeditions matter..

"I think once the cat is out of the bag about how he gets down on his personal life. That might not be good enough for the dodgers to want that guy to wear their uniform to explain it or for teammates to feel comfortable with that guy. Well i think. The teammates is a valid point because when they go into that clubhouse those teammates have significant others girlfriends or wives. And do you think when one of them goes home and says well look He wasn't really charged with anything. So they're going to bring back any of those women are going to say that's okay. That's i want you to associate with that guy. No and i look at it like this rob. You know. I have a lot of kids Because i'm very prolific less. I have two daughters or children but that's another story. Yeah thank you. And i wonder this if i took my daughter to dodger stadium and they announced and starting on the mound is trevor. Bauer are they going to stand and give a standing ovation for the dodger pitcher. That day all be disgusted right. And that's the that's the issue that you have. And i want to give you one other comparison or or is donald sterling who owned the la clippers frail. And you know story very well. He's on a private conversation. He was taped by his side. Piece right she leaked a tape. We heard on the tape. Him used the n. Word talking about black players in the league or whatever what right what what happened to donald sterling banned for life and forced to sell correct. Did he break any laws. Fred no he really didn't he didn't break any laws you can. You could say whatever you want. He didn't break any laws. It wasn't a criminal case was nothing but once they got out in the public and people heard him talk to way he did. It poisoned him. Correct yes and. I think that's where we are with. Trevor bauer i. I'm interested to hear he wins round. One is still a long way to go in this but once you find out how somebody does things on their own personal time. Does that matter to you. Does it cloud the situation. Can you imagine people that dodger. Stadium cheering him. What if he goes on the road. Fred and other teams and parents have to explain to the kids. Why are they booing. That guy. he didn't even put doa pitch dead. He didn't even pitch at you. Know everybody has a right to work everybody. Everybody has that opportunity. It just comes down to. Do you want that person to work for you right. That's really what this comes down to. Because if he doesn't catch another game for the dodgers. I don't think you'll pitch this year. No matter what i agree but i think you'll change somewhere else if if he doesn't pitch. Would you be the team to sign him right but other guys who have had bad things have done bad. Things have gotten second opportunities. So i do believe that. Thanks for listening to.

Search magath battery pack search on amazon. And one of the first ones that comes up is anita and there's this five thousand million hours now. I believe apple's is like eleven hundred million powers talk seven hundred much. Sorry i thought it was twenty three hundred or something. I thought it was. Just follow the anchor one okay. I'll i'm looking at a website. That doesn't even actually. I don't see that information on the website. The people's figured it out because it says on the fine print in the on the battery itself. No it is. It's it's fourteen sixty fourteen sixty million hours. So it's it's it's small. Yeah that was one of the things that surprised me. I'm looking at story right now. macrumors is a breakdown of it and so the anchor one is was at one two three over four times or just guests Just under four times as powerful so with the younger one which is only forty six dollars. I mean so. I just kind of i. It just seems kinda odd. It seems like an odd thing to me. It's like you can get the one for Forty six bucks and it's way more powerful or you can spend twice as much and get apples just kind of seems like it just seems like an odd mix of features for specific products and they have a ton of other ones if donald sterling doesn't have an apple logo well that is worth.

"The Clippers during the eighties, when Donald Sterling was owner. And you went to cool. In no sane world you get to coach the Boston Celtics the next season. That's not how that world operates. You lose. You're out. of the Yankees. If you can't win a baseball game, you're coaching the mud hens. In fact, you'd be lucky to be in Triple A You might be coaching a team in some country. Where the dictator is wearing sunglasses in the official portrait and wearing a funny hat. That's what happens to people who can't Do their job. Well, they can't win games. You don't fail upwards. Unless you're in the government. And that's what happened. Flip flop was consistently wrong. The fake doctor was consistently wrong. But what do they always say? Whenever they're proven to be wrong, or they Flip flop on a subject. Well, if you disagree with me, you disagree with science. And the science changes. As new information comes in, we learn more and we have to revise our positions. Well, guess what? You may change your mind. The science doesn't change. Either you get the virus from surfaces or you don't And if you said that you get the virus from surfaces you were wrong. And it wasn't the science that changed. It was you If you said that You have to shut schools down. Or you're going to have outbreaks and communities. And then you changed your position. Eight months later, it wasn't the science that changed. It was you But he wants it both ways. Because if you buy into that narrative, even when he's wrong, he's right. And subsequently if you buy into that narrative, even when people like Dr Kelly victory or right, they're wrong. Think about what he said. If you're angry at me, you're not angry at me. You're angry at science. So if you disagree with Fauci in his world, you disagree with science. And if you were right It doesn't matter. That is irrelevant. It's like going back to junior high school. Where you're given a math problem. Used to always drive me crazy. They give you a math problem. You figure out the answer. You put the answer down. Well, if you didn't show your work And you didn't follow the steps that the teacher prescribed. Then you get dinged on the answer because you didn't show your work. Who cares how you get to the right answer. As long as you get to the answer. You do it your way I do it mine. But that's the attitude that they had. And Biden is still listening to flip flop Fauci today he has yet to be benched. The fake doctor is still employed by the county of Los Angeles and the Department of Public Health. Dr Marc Galle is still advising the state of California. So those people aren't going away. But the development that happened today. Is an important one. Because now Even though we're still outnumbered, And even though the flip flops of the fake doctors of the mark galleys of the world are still the ones who are going to be on the official payroll, and they're still the ones they're going to put up by the mainstream media as the The Virtuous doctors who know what's going on, and we should all listen to We've got one very important person who's listening to someone who understands reality. And that puts us in a better position today than we were in yesterday. More important than the lawsuit, and the lawsuit is important. Because we shouldn't be censored on social media, especially when we're right. Think about that people were taken off social media for say the virus came from a lab in Wuhan. There were 100% factually correct. Yet you would be D platform for saying something like that. Do you have any idea how dangerous that is? Because that was a position that went that flew in the face of what Fauci was saying. That wasn't allowed. That wasn't Debate that was encouraged on Facebook and Twitter and YouTube or allowed Let alone encouraged. So we went through the year. Without having an honest debate on the subject because one side of the story was prevented from making their case. So allowing an honest debate on all of these subjects. Is very important and you have to have the debate where people are And people are on social media. If you don't believe me, look at the car next to you, that's what they're doing instead of paying attention to the road. They live on that stuff. So we have to make our argument there. It's important to make our argument here and cable news and The newspapers and everywhere else. But there are persuadable people all over the place and you've got to make the argument to them. To win the argument. If you are not allowed to make the argument, the other side winds But more important than social media more important than that. We now have a voice in President Trump's ear. That will give him the ammunition. He needs the same way that Dr Kelly gives you the information you need. To make the argument to your friends and family. She's now doing the same to President Trump. So as far as I'm concerned, if we've got Dr Kelly victory, and they have flip flopped, Fauci, that ain't a fair fight for them. And I'm fine with that. Politics is a pendulum. It's not a continuum. So flip flop Fauci maybe riding high with the mainstream media today, and he may have been riding high for a long time. But now voices that understand that that man is a fraud. Now have the ear of.

"We talk to Roy Wood Jr of the Daily Show. Talk about a lot of things involved in quarantine life. Also talking about Roy's trip to find his roots. Today and Golden Junior. Look at what Aaron Rodgers did. He had an M V P season and now he's put his team on notice. And now you're seeing a lot of quarterbacks sort of have that sense of urgency to win now, and I think seeing what Tom Brady has done, it's amazing because it's not just football Junior. It's also look at what happened in the NBA with LeBron James and the Lakers. You get a piece, and within a year, two years you win a championship. This sense of urgency is high. Whether it's Shawn Watson, Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Sort of brought all those feelings, especially with Super Bowl 55 to the forefront general, really starting to flip on its head. What used to be the old power system to that? And because to do all of that, you need enough influence and enough cachet in the building and a big enough paycheck and guaranteed dollars to be able to go out and flex like that.

"Awful at some point, and they're also expressing concern about the patriotism of the Guards personnel. By the way, I've heard people say over and over again. Guardsmen, Guardsmen garden. Nobody says guards, men and women. They just say Guardsmen. I guess that's okay. It's like the X man even though it's a female, and I guess that's okay. All right. I just wanna make sure Expressing concern because the speculation is that most of the guardsmen voted for Trump and therefore they might be less likely to guard the Democrats. Questioning their patriotism, calling them traitors. Basically. It was a call him in The Washington Post. You know, one of the owners of the co owners of a W. N B A team is the Georgia Senator Kerry La Flor, who's no longer a senator going out. She's co owner, and she Publicly said he was joining the effort to challenge the election that was led by Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz, by the way, still try to challenge the election after the House after the riots. And after the riots, she pulled back, But Ted Cruz kept going anyway. She Is persona non Granna in the WN Ba and The Washington Post column said she should be getting the Donald Sterling treatment You know, Donald Sterling was drummed out of the NBA because of his comments made Captured on tape by his then girlfriend. Comments that were deemed to be racially insensitive, if not outright racist. So she should get the same treatment because, after all, supporting a legal effort to challenge the election makes her the equivalent of a racist. According to this Washington Post columnist. That newspaper, as I mentioned, has not endorsed a Republican in its history. Never I'm not suggesting that they hire people who have the same ideology, but I am suggesting they probably hire people who have the same ideology. What is Joe Biden know about the $15 minimum wage that a bunch of economists don't know. All of this and more but first There is a flurry of activity that is being planned by the incoming bite administration, not least of which is an executive order to legalize the alleged 11 million illegal aliens. Who are here in the country, I say alleged, because a Yale study puts the number at twice that, but A migrant, traveling with a so called caravan that left Honduras explain exactly why he was heading north. Want what you want for your people are beyond some. I'm here today because in my country with a with a hard thing that we had is kind of terrible. Have you got a president that he's not helping the Polish in On Vienna. Bad bad situation. I'm coming from way way far away from brought in and your family, my family. I left them home. I know the kind of robbery because I don't have no Internet. So that their contract me and see what how we're doing. And I'm here today because I'm dreaming to get to the us what is happening now, with the panda MIA notice, he said, I'm dreaming. That's not an accident. No, the dreamers. I'm dreaming. They all know what to say the language he used day because I'm dreaming to get to the US what is happening now with the panda, Mia? Well, the pandemic. It's messes up a lot. I used to work tour guide tourism and we on the island. We're not receiving no tourism because from now on from rotten born in race Islander And that's where I will live. What do you want for your people? What I want for my people. I just want patient and past that we can get to the U. S. Because they haven't a new president. Worse fighting. He gonna help all the rust he given us 100 days to get to the US and give us legal mental paper. So he's giving us 100 days to get to the U. S. And get legal papers by Agnes Mission and past that we can get to the U. S. Because they're having a new president worth fighting. He gonna help all the rust he given us Ah, 100 days to get to the US and give us legal mental paper so we can get a better life for our kids and family. Now this man has just Publicly stated exactly why he is Ineligible for asylum. He just described It is here. Because he lost his job. As a tour guide. Because of the pandemic. That is what is known as an economic migrant by definition, not eligible for admission, but the point is The new Biden administration has singled entirely different incentives. That's why you have this. Remember when the new Trump administration came in, and there was virtually nothing going on on the border. They were intimidated. He knew there was a new sheriff in town. They were gonna make dramatic changes. And then little by little not not so little by little. They found out that everything Donald Trump did. We're gonna be challenged in court. If he expelled gas in the White House pantry, they're going to file a lawsuit. So everything you try to deal with tied up in court, and as a result, the things that Donald Trump wanted to do took a very long time. And that's when the migrants formed. And then Donald Trump dramatically changed the rules and regulations that most notably that you have to apply for asylum in the first safe country that you enter in Mexico has been designated as a safe country. Donald Trump pressure the Mexicans to put their military on the border. And, of course, the wall is also at the advice of the Border Patrol agents has also stemmed the flow. What happens is the respond to incentives and the incentive sent out by the incoming by an administration that Donald Trump was neat and cruel and nasty to illegal immigrants. This is going to be a new administration. And Joe Biden has a very short period of time in which to do all these things he wants to do. Including issue issuing an executive order. They'll probably include people that entered the country at certain kind of date, so let's get up there real fast. While we have a window of opportunity, that's what's going on here. And the reason that the Democrats don't care.

Spike Lee and James Dolan are having a silly feud over which MSG entrance Lee can use

"Area obviously the fallout continues on from Spike Lee having to sort of be re routed or potentially routed from the entrance he's been in all these years and it upset him greatly so we went on first take and then the next the next released a statement saying it's laughable that he's playing the victim card and actually posted footage of the VIP entrance and then a touching of hands in some way shape or form with Knicks owner James Dolan and Spike Lee as he was upset about he could use the app is used for twenty four years and about how you feel about that part of it which I understand if the Knicks are trying to avoid that I get that it was handled clumsily I think that's an easy way to say all of this correct yes it was handled in a way that seemed almost designed to draw attention to it yeah after after by the weight Leon rose as the team present the first came with him they beat the rockets right the Knicks are not a good team and they beat a good team and yet this became the story so obviously someone having an issue with James Dorn is a nothing new but be it reminded us of someone else who very recently had a very public issue with that is a square garden and James Dorn that'll be Charles Oakley who was escorted out of the building by executing was told in twenty seventeen by James Dorn you'll never get into MSG again even if you buy a ticket so of course we were gonna have Charles Oakley on the show this morning to talk about what he thought of the Spike Lee situation of what is going on under James Jones ownership and let's just say Charles did not hold back it is a plantation whether it's good bad people won't talk about is real bad over there someone may have been but I think it was twenty years old ten million dollars in new quick about it because though that bill what what is this mail problem bottle control you so much of a control freak then he heard the whole NBA them all immediately this guy hit land every month or every other week with something that don't have many women together with individual people life we should be going to live with them days will be cold with this control freak in all this that if the court would be in the business you have to have people to work for you so you have to go with people to succeed in life you got into trouble operating business you need people to work he was in distress are working every day wow I mean he listen it was a hell of an interview no doubt about it and and and I guess he he kind of gave an answer by saying that he thinks in all honesty the league should take the franchise away from him but that's not gonna happen but he can he compare him to Donald sterling he said because we've pointed out this on numerous occasions that none of this changes while James Dorn is the owner we don't expect some metamorphosis from him and his point was this is so bad for the lead we saw another very different instance but he pointed out the comparison with Donald sterling saying the league stepped in then he believes the league should step in now I I just don't see them doing that and just like we all don't see no matter who the coaches the GM is the president is good likely on rose that it doesn't matter because players are not you if you're gonna build a team what what Charles Oakley said you're not the building through the draft when you draft somebody to come there because big time free agents are not coming to play for the Knicks yeah what happened this past summer they cleared all the cap space in two point prime free agents did they just didn't go to the next they went to the nets and Stephen A. Smith is in on this as well basically saying the culture of the next sadly is still the culture now I can't he can't he can't help the Knicks win and winning you will accept already and still make the culture that you can get that part the only expense but the only person that can fix this culture change though James Dolan have stopped thank hi guys that that's in Charles Oakley brought that I mean you you you you're in New York you have to have a little bit of a tougher widely I mean okay we can bring that up what do you think that's going to happen if we don't we don't there's no chance that we think that's going to happen this guy owns the most or the franchise won the most in all the NBA one fifth in all of sports right in that area four point six billion dollars he is not as we talk about money should make you treat people assert what you treat people but this guy ain't changing no well that's I guess that's the issue and all this right is you look at it and say unless someone else does step in James Dorn is gonna own this team for as long as he wants a life is about what's incentivized writing his behavior based on the numbers that you just said has been incentivized it is been shown Hey this is a lucrative for you it may not win you basketball games but it's going to make you money you're gonna get to feel important and do all the things that come along with owning the Nixon owning Madison Square Garden and yada yada yada on down the list but what can we count on until that is an endless loop of things like this what an endless loop of Fruita futility so much so that if the Knicks are other good it's going to be completely on accident yeah yeah it's going to be just because within the body of a long period of time a broken clock is right twice a day

David Stern's greatest act as NBA commissioner was supporting Magic Johnson after HIV diagnosis

"When you think about sports that have massive worldwide appeal their soccer of course and there's basketball wasn't necessarily always that way specially when he came to the NBA and back to the early nineteen eighties we can say the NBA was flirting with extinction David stern took over the reins as commissioner and grow it into a five billion dollar per year industry during his thirty years as commissioner former commissioner David stern died Wednesday afternoon at the age of seventy seventy had suffered a brain hemorrhage on December twelfth never recovered earlier on the who collected podcast with Brian Windhorst are Jackie MacMullan I've met a lot of amazing people in my life but he is the smartest person I have ever met Brian I he had an answer for everything now they also might not have always been correct but god forbid you challenge him which we all have done from time to time he was just here the sharpest sharpest mind in a very very sharp edge to him as well which I think he very freely acknowledged throughout his you know his tenure as a commissioner he had some blind spots of you know you talk about the blocks the people that supported him I don't know this for a fact that you've got to believe that Donald sterling was one of them because why else would he have looks the other way the way he did yeah I know that's that works landmark Georgian also so you know he he's nobody's perfect of course but I just what I liked about him was there were when things matter to him like supporting women in being fair to women and whether it was a woman reporter or these W. NBA players weather was being fair to African Americans and making sure they he was so fiercely supported in the other the other example I always give is magic listen Magic Johnson was HIV positive none of us understood it in fact even urban himself when he right before he was a how to go on stage to tell everybody this is what happened to be internal on and once in one rose in his agent months Adam you know what you're gonna say something you know what one of just going to tell them I'm just gonna tell my have aids and lan said home urgent you don't have H. you have the virus that causes age I was in seventh grade or something like that right in our sole so none of us understood the severity and and David stern was up late at night Colleen medical experts all over the world to try to stay one step ahead so he could understand this crisis that he was dealing with and of course you know when Irving retired the first time and then came back and retired the second time and then you wanted to come back when you want to come back the first time that's when everybody starts it will win and I the all star game Jackie right right right we also right but that was that was accepted because that deck didn't count no one was going to you know that no one was going to play too hard that was sort of thing is a one time thing will will and you know that was the Dream Team but then when he wanted to come back following that Brian that's when you started to hear the complaints wait a minute I don't want to risk my life there was and their owners saying Hey I am not in support of this I don't want to do this and and what David stern told was all right listen I'm just gonna tell you right now if we don't do this first of all you can expect a lawsuit and we need that kind of bad publicity the we won't let it H. I. V. person and then the second thing and this was the hammer this is the hammer David stern news and I don't think this is been reported very widely was widely was this okay if you're not going to let him in and we're gonna have mandatory HIV testing for everybody in the NBA and are you all sure that you don't have anybody on your roster that's HIV positive because I'm not sure and this is the kind of and he just he was going to do the right thing by Irvine not because he loved Ervin Johnson because you did because it was the right thing to do and those are the moments when I admire him the most when even though there was I mean his legacy was at stake there imagine if that had gone badly in the attic on rock and remember we know now all about HIV that is treatable that you can live a full life with it but you can't you can't get it from exchanging blind or or I mean exchanging you know some live or or but you know blood if you you know all these things that all these scary things that back then in that climate because I lived it everyone thought will if I get near him and hugs him I might get aids we have aids but this but David store was one step ahead and he was telling everybody you bet I'm you know I'm going to fight this fight and if you aren't willing to I'm warning you these are the things that could happen and now I mean Magic Johnson told me flat out he gave me my life back he saved my life that's what I've been told me and I believe on to saying Wednesday he was devastated quote David star was such a history maker when I announced in nineteen ninety one that I had HIV people thought they could get the virus from shaking my hand when David allowed me to play in the nineteen ninety two all star game in Orlando and play for the Dream Team we were able to change the world David stern died Wednesday at the age of

LeBron James continues fight against NCAA, announcing support of 'Fair Pay to Play' Act

"College sports yes you're listening to caspian los angeles lebron james has this thing called the shop right this show on HBO and gavin newsom the governor of california has been talking about newsome awesome was a baseball player at santa clara yes so he knows that they monetize student athletes all the time so you do you have this i do okay this was newsome with lebron maverick carter on the uninterrupted deciding whether or not to sign a bill that would allow college athletes to be able to monetize their name and likeness and to be able to make endorsements our cash here's gavin newsom i don't want to say this is checkmate this i don't want to say this checkmate but this is a major problem for them to be brought the maverick carter put pen to paper right now what is going to change and what's it gonna do it's going to initiate initiate dozens of other states introduced similar legislation and it's going to change college sports for the better by having now the interest finally of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions now we're rebalancing that power arrangement let's do it let's do all right so he actually signs the bill on tv cowboy this this is this is number one reason reason why we've created this platform to be able to have moments like this where we got the governor of california signing a bill to allow athletes in college in here's a little bit more from lebron sure i don't wanna say this house opinion about it went off to any one of these big time colleges where i'm pretty much that twenty-three jersey would've sold all over the place without my name on the bag but everybody would have known the likeness my body would have been on the NCAA basketball game two thousand and four and the sosthene center would have been sold ought every single night there so coming from the this me and my mom we didn't have anything we wouldn't have been able to benefit at all from it and the university of neighbor to capitalize on everything that i would have been for that year or two or whatever so understand and with those kids are going through i feel for those who've mcguire that's wild personal in that obviously was today at training camp mason and orland ESPN LA lebron james there you heard from gavin newsom to me this is the silver bullet solution to paying college college athletes it is well first of all let's make a point here though this particular bill does not authorize colleges colleges to pay athletes what it allows is for them to make money off of their name and outside agent and to be able to be due to endorse somebody or something like to endorse nike if you're a top-flight athlete and this to me is a very fair way to deal with compensating college athletes because those athletes with a high profile will make a bunch of money those athletes without a high profile won't necessarily make anything so to me this makes perfect and complete sense if you are as he said lebron james at the collegiate level last year if you were zion williamson you could have been a nike endorser by the time you were a freshman at duke and it would have been totally okay the biggest stars would make the biggest money and and that's the way college sports should move forward this is insanely overdo it should've happened a long time ago ed o'bannon was in the room and ed o'bannon was the guy hi who originally filed a lawsuit against these guys because he was the face of a video game that made millions of dollars and he got zero from it when when he when the national championship at UCLA the NCAA which if you listen to the show you know i think a bunch of phonies and i wish the whole organization organization will go away but the NCAA makes billions with a b. often these kids billions and as brand points tout the kids often in the case of of some of these inner city kids come from poor households come from single parent households could really use a little bit of what all this money that they're making and and let's make no mistake here when lebron stock would not allow us ed oh man manning is an example when obama was at UCLA they sold a number thirty one UCLA basketball jersey in the student store that sold out as fast as they can get it in their UCLA was ranked number one in the country ed o'bannon wore number thirty one and they were all wearing it at the games how do you make the argument that that's not his name and likeness of course it's his name and likeness and if he is being marketed and sold like that he's entitled to a percentage uh of the prophets and the funny thing was mace they wouldn't put his name on the back so his actual jersey would say o'bannon by the students store would just be number thirty you're just get around paying him and lebron's one hundred percent right yep that that this is something that that should happen a long time ago i'm glad that gavin newsom here's some stake in the lead on this and your next thing's going to be well the NCAA is threatening to keep teams from california out of let's say the college football the playoffs are out of the NCAA tournament the way this bill was written first of all it doesn't come into effect till twenty two twenty three correct so nobody that's a student now is going to benefit from it it's it's gonna start in twenty twenty three and they've written the bill in a way that the NCAA can't do that can't can't single them out that's how they've prepared the bill how's that we'll read it read the LA times article today it explains it in detail they've written the bill which basically soclean prohibits anyone from in indemnified these kids from being ruled eligible for this for this specific so campaign NCWA keep a school out if a player is making money i don't think they can well that's what that's what the NC double a. threatened has threatened to do but the way this is written is that it would make it illegal for them to i would compare to the donald sterling case donald sterling when he sued the the NBA his shelly had already indemnified the the sterling's from being able to so he was an essence ensuing himself off the NCAA if you read the times article today it lays out in detail how the NCAA can try they can try and and do this but the way the bill has been written is it would not threaten their eligibility now the NCAA rules they try and change the rules but andrew how they're going to do it with new awesome i think this is going to it's going to force the other states to what is it going to go on like i i can imagine a world where if california's by itself and california schools i would imagine since he NCW becoming an advantage owns the college football playoff and runs the NC double a. tournament i can imagine them being excluded however this bill is now picking up steam in south carolina it's which would affect clemson it's picking up the contrary very to you know dabo sweeney who says the day college athletes get paid he's gonna walk away so this guy with one hundred million dollars guaranteed state of new york is now pushing this legislation nation i think the reason why twenty twenty three why in five years this goes into effect is to allow other states to catch up to the state of california when you're which by the way other states are always catching up to the state of california right well think about it if the other states don't follow suit it gives the the state of california a tremendous advantage in recruiting and other stuff they have to follow suit or their kneecapping their own teams is the the interesting thing to me is that so many people at the NCAA we are now trying to say no no no this this is a bad thing it's a bad thing because of course they're going to say that it puts them out of business it takes money out of their pocket but you know what you watch all the conferences are gonna come out and they're going to say they're disappointed the twelve does say they're disappointed in the past passage of SP SP to a six believes it will have a significant negative consequence for our student athletes and broader universities in california well of course they're going to say that larry scott by the way makes five point three million in dollars per year and he's not good at his job now he's terrible terrible it is a job okay so the bill and it was the person who brought it to the due to the floor was a state senator named nancy skinner she's a democrat out of berkeley and here's what i was talking about with you before present sound too liberal prohibits hits the NCAA from barring a university from competition if it's athletes are compensated the university of california system the california l. a. -fornia state university schools stamford in USC all opposed the bill saying they feared it would increase costs to ensure compliance with the law and lead defines or expulsion but the bill specifically prohibits the from barring university from doing that so let's see how it all plays out now he's newsom said that that presidents and boosters urged him to veto the bill let he felt strongly the state needed to address the racial gender and economic injustices justices that exists now in college good firm decision absolutely the right thing let's see where it goes

Inside Donald Sterling's Clippers Era

"Grew up in los angeles in the eighties and i remember watching clipper games on t._v.'s a kid. The games themselves weren't weren't really anything to talk about. I mean the team almost never won and yet the voice of the clippers ralph lawler. Somehow made me care well. That was my job and part of the craft. I just felt that was my job to find a way to keep people interested did in a game. That very often wasn't very interesting because we had a lot of those lottie years. That weren't very interesting but there's always a story to tell if fifteen win season there's some young player or players that you've got a story to tell about them that that humanizes them. That makes people likes them makes people root for them. How rookie was a master at making the clippers likable no matter how much they lost honestly think a lot of fans tuned in for ralph more than the basketball because god knows there was no one at the actual arena except for penny marshall and billy crystal. How did you become a clipper fan because no one was a clipper. They asked me to play. They said listen. We only get four guys tonight. Can you still dribble sports arena. Yeah i had tickets for awhile and we they were great but there was no challenge you know and then a friend of mine calls it's come on. Do you want to go see the clippers play as a all right. There was nobody there. I mean it was a triple double meant. There were three couples. Uh at every level the clippers screamed not showtime but that didn't seem to bother donald sterling or at least it didn't seem to register register. He got a lot of negative press but it was attention. People knew his name and he liked that. That's kind of all. He really wanted to be the center center of attention. That's why he started throwing his party's. They were fabulous donald and shelly sterling's infamous white parties so called because i guess we're expected to come wearing white. Everybody came in white except for donald who got to wear black. L. is just fabulous. It was just a big white party. The biggest white party took place at the end of summer as a way to kick off the basketball season. We'd have the players there. They'd get up on stage and a lot of the fans and a lot of ticket holders. Were there down in the white. Show intel tell don casey attended the party's when he was a coach for the clippers westie cups like this high so you can't drink too much wine little hotdog sticks in a multi-million ekberg. His bailable white party is notorious after uh-huh one time with my wife i i was never allowed to go again. It wasn't quite my style anyway but was so seedy an oily about it is he'd have forgive me but it's true he'd have like grade c actors and actresses. The hangers on the people wanted to get back in show business but he'd also mingle mingle with people who were stars. Billy crystal was one any hired more than just impersonators. There were some lovely ladies walking turnaround. Donald called them hostesses. He had them at every party. He threw he'd actually advertised for them in the paper looking for california model types but they were glorified. Call girls there to look good and entertain. The male guests and shelley had to smile and endure it another public humiliation at the hands for husband too much one. The shelly said maybe not enough. There was always a photographer roadster. He had to have a private photographer for everything everything he did. Give a hand to america where he were walking around him. His voice was talking. He was like yes fabulous. This the mirror quentin richardson was drafted by the clippers in the first round of the two thousand draft he was from chicago played college ball there and then declared for the draft after his sophomore year he was barely twenty years old when he landed in los angeles inexperienced his first donald sterling party. We know we were there whereas the is is his guest athletes but then you had i guess you would say his friends and his normal guest is like you know definitely not the same type hyper looking crowd is we are and so for us. We will kind of standing there and just check everything out and it's like you know. This is for a lot out of us the first time this is the first preseason team type owners meaning or house or any of that. We've ever been to have been involved in so i'm i'm dislike. I'm be respectful say will serve because then i'm over here may want it all and we wanted with player los angeles. This was the best part of the party for donald sterling showing off his players. Don't need have the individual players. Stand up and tell why they love l._a. One of his favorite questions and so you'd have all these guys standing ended up you know danny manning and charles smithson yom mark jackson and stand up and say why they i love l._a. And there's a lot of beautiful girls aren't there and i'm you hong. Come on please. I remember four wilt chamberlain who was getting up there and he was almost at the end of his life and he looked very rail thin to me but he says what what am i doing here. I see you you tell me he goes. I don't even know this guy. It was almost heartbreaking. I was just like okay. I'm ready for somebody to make the first move so soon as somebody else leave. I'm gone like i just don't want to be the first one to leave but from out of here he would hold your hand and just would not let go was it was really really uncomfortable. I mean all my god you. He just wanted to someplace else. The thing is as awkward as these parties were. Donald never seemed happier. He got to be the bell of his own ball and for a few hours a captive audience had to at least pretend to think it was really cool that he owned the worst human basketball because in real life no one was donald sterling so donald found ways to manufacture that for himself to force the conversation to the fact that he he owned the clippers whoever happened to walk up he would ask him advice about the team he would go to the airport after a game and the baggage handlers i would say donald sterling over to me and said. Do you think we should trae. Danny manning you talk to the waiter to restaurant talked to usher at the games is famous. This thing is what i think of my coach just as likely he'd be listening to a cabdriver as he would be to a general manager a scout in bach loud he would call me sometimes was late at night. You know i'm roy firestone. You know everybody. You've watched all these interviews. Tell me about larry brown and why he should be the coach of our team. It's ten hindu eleven at night. It's the owner of the clippers. I'm not a basketball coach analysts. He goes roy. Your opinion matters you know he called billy crystal said. What do you think of larry brown. If you say i should hire him. I'm hiring them. Billy crystal must've told him to hire larry brown because he did and it was a good higher in one thousand nine hundred and again in nineteen ninety-three brown actually led the clippers to the playoffs for the first time since before donald on the team but then

Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged in prostitution sting

"A multi-billionaire Robert Kraft owner of the most successful football team of a generation is caught soliciting sex in Florida. Yes. And part of a human trafficking sting. Bob Kraft is charged with two counts of soliciting someone to commit prostitution in Palm Beach county. And the cops say they have videotape of him paying for the axe inside this Asian massage parlor, the orchids of Asian day spa in Jupiter, Florida. So there's been a months long investigation into all of this. There were ten total spa. Shut down as part of this thing in Orlando Palm Beach county on the treasure coast, again Coffman looking into this for several months showing that women there were in sexual servitude. Boy, terrible terrible situation. There were two hundred arrest warrants or somewhere in that ballpark issued in recent days. More are expected and Robert Kraft was among them. It's one thing that if you're talking about him soliciting some Hooker when it's part of a human trafficking sting. Oh, yeah. And that gets into the spotlight because that is a problem across the country across the world. Yeah. Then what does the NFL do with that? You wonder you. You would think I mean come on. What's his name with the oh, I just blanked on his NBA team owner got caught on a hidden recording device. Shoot man, always the clippers owner now, I forget his name, sterling. Donald sterling. So that guy. I mean, he he was booted essentially, right? I mean kind of iced out of the league for that. Robert. I mean, yeah, I mean it was that. I mean, there was a lot of things that led to that. I mean, he was known as the worst owner in the NBA had done a lot of stupid bad things over the years. Robert Kraft has this great reputation. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But this is a criminal. I know and especially like you said if there is human trafficking going on. Man. Oh, man. And my goodness. So as the nine it right now. Right as denying it. Although the police have confirmed now they have video evidence not only have been paying, but allegedly capturing what went down. And the mental image that comes to mind. Immediately leads me to another thought, which is cops work in. This case aren't getting paid enough. Whatever they're getting paid. It is not an oh boy. It sounds like a cheap shot. But it's true. I mean craft before what are you talking about, you know, investigations things like that that he wanted to see hard evidence. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. We expect hard facts as opposed to circumstantial evidence. No, he's not talking about. This story is stories from the past. I just saying that's Deflategate, right? Or was that spy gate? That was Deflategate. Going by gate is different eroneous story coming out was really harmful. And what bothers me more about this story is where it went throughout the country where people don't know us as well. Well, they know you pretty well down in Jupiter. Don't they I think they do. They won't see this retraction. But people who know us know what we're about. Oh,
