"Cloudy in downtown San Diego. Hopefully, seeing some sunshine pretty quickly. Coco two years time is 7 42 and it is a bizarre story. The suspect who was wanted in the fatal assault on a New Jersey federal judge, Esther so lost family is dead from apparently a self inflicted gunshot wound in Rockland, New York, he has identified his Roy den Hollander. Joining us on the cocoa news. Live line. Reporter time you J powers. Who is this man? And why did he go after this judge? Yeah, that That was the question on a lot of people's minds, and that's the booking investigation is centering on by the way, the FBI's leading that investigation. What we know of him is he is a self described anti feminist lawyer. He is known for filing lots of lawsuits with courts seemingly frivolous. Kind of lawsuit that a lead thought Tio do away with ladies night clubs or eliminate women's studies programs. Things like that he had a lot of writing was on his website, which has been taken down from what I understand. He is the person that police they went to Judge Callison home on Sunday afternoon, Her son answered the door. He was 20 with a junior in college. You answered the door and was shot by this person who was standing at the door in a FedEx delivery uniform, which police say was looked at Hollander, the boy's father, who was the judge's husband ran up to find out what the commotion was about. He was shot. He is apparently in the hospital. Now we're not not sure what his current condition is, but he is stable from what we understand. And then did Islanders body was found in Liberty, New York That's about a two hour drive from North Brunswick, New Jersey, which is where the judge's home is. It was apparently a self in self inflicted gunshot wound. They are looking at the possibility of it being linked to a case there in California. Where I am in The men's rights lawyer apparently was shot and killed earlier this month by someone dressed as a FedEx driver. They don't know if the two are linked, but they're looking into that. The FBI has also contacted New York State's chief Judge, Janet de Fiori. To tell her that den Hollander actually had her name and photo in his car. Not what we understand from different reporting, including a story in The New York Times about this, den Hollander had been hey had had a case last summer. In Judge Palace court. It was about the all male you know, draft law basically for the military, and he was challenging that he apparently gave that to another attorney and told that attorney He had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. And that is why he was giving up the case. Um, the investigators are looking into whether you know he had decided to, you know, make a list of people he wanted to harm. That is the reason you know they were, I guess, tying that to the photo and everything of the New York state judge a swell, but yeah, there's a lot of a lot of questions going on here. As to why he did what he did his. Like I said his website. You give some clothes. I'm sure the FBI knows a whole lot more. Man. I mean, it's just so convoluted and he was he was with men's rights, you said, But the case that he is conducting an connected to here in California, involves the death of a men's rights attorney. Yeah. The whole thing is just like I said, we were finding out more and more about it. But the thing that we know that was that hey, can remember exactly where. In California this wass But I know that he was, you know, As you know, earlier this month he had posed as a delivery person, apparently and This is what happened here in New Jersey and like I said the investigators are looking into whether that shooting earlier in the month. In which another lawyer was killed at his front door is the same guy. Now there's got a lot to look into. Actually seems very similar. Reporter Tawny J. Powers. Thank you very much for your time this morning, All right? Local news time is 7 46 How are Santiago beaches?.

"Well I think a chat for about two and a half hours in pretty good. I think That's pretty much you know. As far as the questions we add you much. Burn through that and some so. I think that was awesome. That's why I'm here was great. I knew I. It's a staple of the show going off. You know going off on tangents you know for US exactly. See retracting what happened. We were fully prepared for it because it happens to us all the time. And you doesn't doesn't doesn't stop us at all. We keep on truckin like he's sports but you know I think the conversation that we have the best sports which is like all this stuff but then like you know we we start talking about like. I don't know like the business part of IT I. I think it's fun and a lot of people are not. I think it or focus should be on the business side of things. Honestly you know. A lot of people see the sports in the FLASH AND THE GAMES. But they're like you've said of a bunch of times. They're not really focusing on how to do it right so I think the business aspect definitely should be a much bigger part of conversation and just how to like. Just just real quick. Is that like you know. Terms of the way that you know dramatic is run. Is that like? I've always thought that your fans your biggest fans should be your coaches in your players and not source twitter. Like you've not if twitter but like you know the reason how I've got like the League of legends to be self. Sustaining is that like I didn't I just don't you know. Yeah for Academy. It's different but for for for dramatic. I don't treat people like disposable parts. Yeah Yeah of course and it's just that like if they can't play anymore like do you want to do something would do whatever you want. You know what I mean like you know but deep down inside like I wish that was a big enough or Greg. Just pay people. You know what I want. And that's and that's the reason why I want the money. Light is not because like you know if I were very very simple like. She's scratched the the the the the furniture like no. Yeah so it's like the way we're we're very very simple. People like we like tiny stuff. One a small house you know. We live like in the game our house now for the academy team and we're dislike. We could not live in a house like this by ourselves. Even if we had ten rooms three floors. Screw that like I'm not gonNA I can't. Even you know like furniture in a room that I'm never going to use. Yeah but it's just that like I WANNA have like this efficient company. We start to slowly build ourselves up into starting from me like if I had an like you know I would probably choose like one game to go into and then piggyback that with like you know f g seat or rainbow six or something like that like I would get into league overwatch and then just kind of branch off another things in a very very small way. But because that's what I want because I enjoy watching the competition and I wanNA see the teams play at the highest level and stuff like that but the the money just doesn't really you know the prophets and stuff like that really. Don't industry as much as they probably should. It's good like Oh my God. I want to be a billionaire. I want this money so I can like have good. I've really applies people to like you know pay for staff in young players and scouting and stuff like that and to do our websites and do our social media's Kinda get all that sort of going and people they are you can just get like a volunteer like hate asking people to do something for free. Yeah I mean it's very uncomfortable for me. You know what? I'm sure like you know I do. Some of that stuff and graphic designers do suggest creative treated by disposable parts like a one is like like people have like no idea and he can design with whatever that gene is that God gives out everyone. I I don't I got negative of it. I would say my stick figures by like the people who have this this this creativity towards like making a you know like the character. The characters and You know the banners and stuff like that like man. That's that's just as a town that I don't have they should be compensated because line. Sales salespeople like you know like you know we can work off off of like you know you'll get paid when we buy us something because we're kind of used to but like these graphic designers like they put so many hours into this like from from from from the time they're in college graduate college. They told the same things. Like we can't pay you but will pay you exposure like. Yeah that does doesn't pay my rent. My landlord doesn't doesn't accept exposure box. Exact exposure yeah. It's but yeah they. It's it's their one of their wonderful people that deserve to be compensated course and rather have it not be done then have done unscrewing someone over. Yeah Yeah I get that so cool. I'm an will. Thanks for joining us. It's a pleasure. Yeah anytime I live social shout out. We'll put it in. I guess at Andrew Kendo on twitter. I say random stuff like wrestling sports. I E sports. I'm an emotional guy. I'll say stupid things from time to Hawk what he kind of tank it. What the hell like like you're better than this but it's like you shouldn't be saying that you know. I know I actually learned a lot of I even ask like. How do you handle is like as ignore it? I'm so yeah at. Kendo and dramatic is also at dramatic G G Yup And again these are socials. That probably should be should be updated personally might start streaming at some point to nuts like plug man protect bug but you know. I kind of want to be like that normal joe and just Kinda like people try that but it might start streaming at some point. You know terrible you know overwatch play. But I'll try old meteor game playing comedy one of those things. Where like you know. Maybe I could stream in you know have guests on or something like that or whatever and But yeah that's so it's at dramatic on twitter is or at Andrew Kendo On the on the on the twitter sphere and yes. I used to practice kendo. Nice mega years ago. Perfect well again yeah. This has been a blast. I really like I enjoyed it a lot and it took a bit to nail down but I'm glad I'm glad we did. I'm glad it's one of my news. Resolutions that were terrible which was like deer emails and stuff like that. I gotta be honest. Even though like I talk a lot I'm still very very insecure. And it's like even my wife is why you get nervous every time you on like you go for a M- it's like I don't know like what a it's you know. I really like even when I had to give a presentation like talk as much as me. You level like I so nervous just due to is student insecurity. I mean it was great so I guess I would. I would say just again and the best because I'm the first so the part too high here but I try my best. You know we'll have you on again. We'll keep going.

"And agnes right ignace and then you had. I was named arena. Right the the dragoon like we are. She like she should have been a playable character because she was bleeding. She's she's bad ass. And so that was the one thing that was missing from fifteen. Because I thought the story was great. I cried like a baby at the end it was like I thought the whole setup going at the end when you had the theme music playing a game when you going into the final battle like it was. It was awesome very well put together. That the world was great Maybe a little plane at times but I bet there was just enough to do where I kept myself busy but you know but I think playing a game on because even now like final fantasy fourteen when I play it on. Pc like being able to get two hundred playing even the new now. Oh my God like I have yet to get my hands on it but I've heard it's fantastic. It's on I was on it before the sale. Because that's how my life works but you know I think a lot of developers are seeing that so. I think you can Chris thing like you can buy a PC and you're probably going to spend more money on a what biannual or triannual basis on upgrading every year. But you're just going to get better performance. Yeh so I don't know what the PS five or the xbox XS Guy was. I was going to ask you to what your impressions on because I mean based on everything I've seen on paper. They're essentially a five hundred dollars. What I'm guessing is going to be a five hundred dollar. Pretty Powerful Reisen based system and their targeting four K. With a maximum one twenty not saying that every game is going to get four K. One twenty I mean if they can get a handful of games you know the real popular ones hitting four k. One hundred twenty. That's essentially computer. It's better than my computer. Currently it's playing skyrocketed like a really high end as opposed to playing like a PS four. And extra here's like I like consoles like I have my. I only reason why I bought a ps four was because I got the final fantasy. Fifteen collector's edition like that. That's why I got it and I and I got the remake on it like there's no other reason to own it but you know but I'll always buy that for xbox obviously halo is going to be on C. Now too but like I would I would buy it for Halo and you know also I think I what did I do? I do like assassins creed and the UBISOFT Games on xbox for some yeah last voces lasts only on. Ps four it's only NPR or his ing. Which which which I think is probably one of my top five games of like of all time if encompassing story the atmosphere everything that it was supposed to do with did and The mechanic is it was really really really well put together and you know again but but like PC comes into play type of game. Where like you know. It's kind of like playing tomb raider on a PC. It's like you get the quality in terms of the the the environments. But like it's not necessarily necessarily needed right. Yep like the last of us is like that but if you play like a game like sky rim or something like that like you know yeah you want that on like the ultra you wanted and the fact of the matter. Is You know game like skyrocketed modding enabled. It's allowed the game to stay alive for so long because your people have added the crap out of it and they've they brought a game When she cheese I I should know in two thousand ten was two thousand ten thirteen. I 'cause more than two thousand seven right. I should know absolved my head but I put many hours that game. But they've essentially allowed a game. You know with bonding to to look just as good now as it did you know comparatively for when it came out in the technology had now but you know the modding scene so high that you can make that game. Look like four K. models everything like that. It's it's crazy. I mean game lit up a lot of doors when it comes to two games on jeopardy and stuff like that does and the thing is too and it's actually kind of funny. Where like you know like there's nothing worse than like a steam sale? It's like everything. Every game they ever wanted is on sale. Like I think like every once in a while I'll tweet like this is your this is your quarterly reminder that sleeping dogs three dollars by Alexander like sleeping dogs for like a derivative grand theft auto meets Shenmu awesome. Gay really good really did well. My friends told me I should check it out by our. It's really really good. And and a game like quantum break which I think was a little bit before it signed because like obviously quantum break awesome. Yeah it was it still like and that was on sale for like ten bucks. I'm like aw man like that's a you know. And that's the game that I played in xbox. I'm like you know what I really want to check this out on the 'cause like ten bucks so I i. It's funny because I got to. Here's the thing is I got the end but that's when it started playing PC games. I can't aim what the controller anymore. I need the keyboard and mouse. I mean that's like we made the jump to probably four years ago at this point when pudgy before pudgy but like Pudgy was a big big driver for me to get get into PC gaming before that it was all all console. And I you know. I played all the duties on council. I can't for the life of me. I console playing. Cod blows my mind. The most embarrassing thing that I've I've done one was trying to shoot a basketball twenty years after playing high school basketball. You wouldn't know what to do and it was so sad. Where like that mean that goes around these high school kids shooting baskets and like not like fifteen seconds like a couldn't hit the rim. I wouldn't even know how to judge me trying to aim on a controller. Right now rock just like. I can't do it because I never. I never completed grand theft auto on PS four. But then trying to aim and shoot and everything else and then I get used the left bumper to like switch here but that's not the same and it's like I I need to get this on the PC. So I yeah. I can't aim on a controller anymore. I can't do the point and you know that's we which is actually a really good debate because I think both sides making argument between like duty. Pc colony console right. Yeah it's like it's like the I mean that's probably not the same thing I think the aluminum bat and the wooden bat. Yeah I guess because I I was going to say something about to competitively. Because there's you know the the Amos's such a hot topic like from a competitive side of things because everyone's yelling about it in fort night and then even like the most recent war zone Wednesday a lot of the top teams remaining towards tournament. We're all their controller players. Not Saying that. They were playing on console. But they're all you know whether it's controller and or they're actually playing on console but they're they're all using controller which is interesting. I just I look at it as a as as a hurdle I feel like that they. I don't know about a hurdle but adversity to the competitive environment because you know aim assist is obviously prevalent in a lot of games. There is the youtube clip of the of the of the the CS go player from India. For optic got torn on rip off stage for using an aim. Bought 'EM ASSIST PLAY. Right but why is that not allowed but it? Amos's allowed in controllers so it's again like I get it again. I'm over the market is going. I think. Part of the issue with the call of Duty League is the fact that it's not on computer. I mean I that's not this I I'm sure like I'm sure like all them could could very easily pick up. A you know a mouse and the keyboard do really well. They could probably be on a controller right. Can you imagine him nature play? You Know Stream. They they do beat most of the people they play against anyways so says name. What like I guess thing like like I think there should be that option but but I think that you should take off the the you know the The -must because I think that again it assists with with the aim right. It's like you can't cork the bat. You know I don't know like you can't curve you stick you know. Basically it's like allowing like like you can curve a like in curve a wooden stick but you can't curve a Without you can curb the wooden sticks because they're heavier but you're not allowed to occur curve the composite X. because they're lighter. Yeah it's it's it's like it should be straight across the board But again like thing like aiming on on a controller. I WANNA say either control. It was much more difficult. I I just think it is so it. Probably have the Amos's because it probably is literally impossible for like the normal game on Azure. It's but you know. I don't think it's the master race but I think that in terms of like money and advertisements and stuff like that. Where like you know you want to have a pc and stuff like that. But that's just me I mean I you know I again like if they move over to the NBA Two K. League. I think is on. Pc technically but you can use the controller. I could be. Yeah I think I think so. Yeah so you can still have the controller over to. Pc that's moving to pc but you know it's a it's a man or is it going to be like one team was allowed to keyboard player keyboard and keyboard it. So it's IT'S A it's A. It's a very good debate you know if I wanted to. It's probably one of the better debates in sports right now. Which is you know. I think that PC is better. It has better performance and stuff like that an estimated especially now than some some of the more popular games are now coming over to PC. I think it's kind kinda solidifying it. Yup Oh You know so. That's where it is but Bentayga it's so hard at Avon on controller. I do it. I can't even on keyboard mostly remind no I I. Yeah I drive a war zone every now and then because like during during the week with the whole quarantine you know. My my girlfriend uses my desk so I can't play my computer so I'll drop in on on my xbox and my buddies and I look like a child learning how to swim. I'm just like I can't look at the same time I used to be so fluent at it and said you this before I used to think I was a pretty good player like I played a lot of overwatch. I played a lot of call duty when we played Kaduna Council. I was always in the top of the team. As far as kills you know in public matches and stuff like that and I. I can't even fathom playing that right now on the controller. I just lose it so quickly. I never thought either buddy. I played a lot lately. I tried for the first time on council ick couple months ago and I just felt like an absolute new can do anything I can never do. I will say the lately I. I've been plugging my control or into a PC and playing on my pc trial to Amos's because it is pretty strong and caught right now so it it's definitely there and that thing is like you can still use it use a controller on. Pc like you know the the you know. The xbox one controllers are optimized for or if I have the do gore steam controller is okay but you can use xbox controller even a PS four controller. Watch Nick Merck's he does things on controller that I can't even do. It mustn't keyboard it's didn't didn't the DACA disrespect too extreme on controller. He played blackout a lot on controller. Actually two also doing modern warfare or a few times on the controller is his background console. Right when he played like cotton and stuff like that so he has he has. Yeah yeah he was a level designer too. But yeah it's it's Yeah. It's pretty crazy watching some of the high level controller players just roast people because I I can't even do it on mouse and keyboard and I know for a fact that mouse and keyboard is superior so all the props to them for doing it. Yeah IT'S A. I think consoles are going to die because I think John this multi multi multi media computers and stuff. I mean they're integrating everything so like Microsoft is into integrating everything so nicely into the xbox that you can do everything all off the xbox you know you don't get like the sweet overlays necessarily but I mean if you WanNa just start out streaming in an xbox great way to do it because everything's built right in.

"Papa. John RIC flair was doing companies commercials. But it's the older and they did their timers like we're talking about like what is player GonNa do. The God forbid age of twenty three. You're going to do for the rest of his life because he has a good like like God forbid you've got sixty five years left of his life to sort of figure this out so so it's like the the market has to sort of dictate. What's the afterlife going to be right and and again like other? Sports had kind of have that same stigma which is just that like if you retire like you know what does it become a salesman lawyers. They worked for dad or mom. You know they open up their own business or have a gambling problem or whatever the bad side of it like you know. It's being being able to set up these players that like you know yes streaming is big can make you a lot of money but still such a small percentage that. What else are you going to do? So that's where going into colleges is that they should be or even. The developers themselves are the companies themselves should be out there like explaining some of the opportunities as looking for. Because here's the thing like you know a lot of the big east sports or the ones that are the ones that are successful. You know when they hire like lawyers or accountants they look they hire lawyers accountants they hire lawyers and accountants. But not like someone who read a COUPLA books but really loves video games the someone who you know who knows the Contra Code you know what I mean so. It's so it's like you know a lot of these east. Sports Org are going to be looking for management or back office nine sexy stuff but you know. Liking Video Games is not a requirement. It's barely a prerequisite if office at some of these awards right. You know. It's like okay so you like video games. Can you design a website? You can Kenya manage team. That's great you know. We all played being and she had that background. But how you around how you're on people and like that's like a Lotta. These kind of players have to kind of set themselves up for. Which is that like. Maybe the big opportunity then. We'll be coaching right for these colleges know be you know these ex players should be hired for these collegiate positions right yet like listen. You're successful. See US go. You're successful league. You know you're retired. You know a college should be hitting this person up throwing money at them please. Run might eat. Please run our sports department. Because we don't know what to do we have that and the and as much as I love the athletic directors like you know. It's it's different right. It's very very very different. It's different crowd right. Yeah and and so it's like you know. Have their own sports wing in their own sports department where they are You know where they can relate and then that will be an attraction to your college because yeah I mean every college is building land centers right now but you know if you have like player. A WHO's like an ex pro and he's running your sports program. I'm telling you like you'll have more applicants than you can handle wanting to play for your for your For your team. Yeah Yeah And then it also comes down to real quick when it comes to colleges. It's like you know. How good are these college teams like you know? I can these college teams like obviously you know. College teams can't be professional teams in sports. But it's just that like you know. Are these up and coming players or are these players that are you know. Basically retired pros or now playing college going bad so and most players would rather play for their for T. three orbs or tier to play for colleges right now. E- e- even with scholarships because when it's happening is that you know they can get a full scholarship to college a right but you know that whole team can be grandmaster. But there's not that many grandmaster collegiate teams out this probably like waiting and Pike Condom on your hand. Maybe right but if they're playing against like like like diamond players they're you know they're you know carrying this team or after amongst diamonds and they're just carrying this team through. Testa or whatever know Yes sports arc may look at that but there are dislike. I mean he played against much classmate anyone's GonNa look good so you know. But what if we put him around other grandmasters playing against grandmasters? He hasn't been gregory or she. Sorry she or they don't have against higher higher competition which which which. Which makes you know kind of scouting for academy that much heart. Even harder as well is that you know. Look at them and screams and they look good or the on their team but like you know how they against like amongst their like their actual peers or their peers would be an NFL contenders setup. And it's kind of a kind of a crap shoot so sure I can imagine. Yeah that's I mean it's crazy to crazy. Thought I mean I just I would have never have seen gaming get to wear his now. Like you mentioned you view Games. Where always I think. Your Games are always going to be popular but yeah the everything else. That's kind of spawned from it from your younger than now is is very interesting. There's nothing wrong with taking the conservative approach. I mean it's not sexy but like for example you know. I can't speak for them but I'll speak from. My experience with the kraft group is like you know the reason why we still have an academy team is because huck values academy team and sees the value in investing money into a tier two team that will hopefully turn into tier one players. Because when you save money on the back end from from scouting and God forbid time right. 'cause it's fun but it's a lot of work in terms of with with with just trials and everything else like that and try just like. Oh my gosh it's like but like you know midseason. It's cheaper for a team in terms of like an intern. The cost to go out and call up a player like for the Red Sox and it costs less to bring them up than it is to like give draft pick or give up money or give our trade Semenov Twenty five or twenty man roster to go get you know a third line winger or to get a third a third guy in the rotation that there's a cost that's involved with that so like if you're off tank struggle I'm not saying specifically but I'm saying like if you're struggling you know because this is a really good academy system like fantastic and teams and they they value the value it so they they're like okay well. If our juggler is not doing well then we need to call up. Our Juggler use a sub. Been stuff like that and so I think that's where Huck sees that value now. Unfortunately this year with covert situation. You know in the horrible. It's horrible thing so again. You talk about the Toy Department here right in terms of Eastport so will preface that. But it's like it's that much harder for players to or teens actually make changes to make changes now to their teams because Cova because the lack of of the possibility of actually getting Of getting visas right. Yep Yep Kinda Sorta y you know Vancouver had a stick with basically what they had was because okay. We need to get the cheapest easiest way to get six players on here. He players went not because we can't go to Korea because it's GonNa causes this amount of money so they if they had an academy team right and as off the situation for everybody involved. They could is called up the next six players if they had if they had an academy team. So you know so. The way the kraft group approaches. That may not be may not be sexy and you know this year. We're all kind of struggling. But like the idea of the academy team is to invest in the future invest in future prospects and because they also have the revolution and because they have the the Patriots they know. When it's like right the practice squad players I believe get paid but it's like a stipend but per day. I remember in like you know the the academy team for the revolution and stuff like that. You know AAA for the Red Sox like that. Like there's a reason why they exist is up because of the owners of the pawtucket. Red Sox right can make money selling tickets for ten for you know and Free Family Fun night. The clown in the jugglers Hawaiian in the in the in the YMCA kacoos players at the seventh inning stretch. You know it's there because like they want you know. They hope that they can actually bring up. The future. Red sox players down the road and I think that's that's why yet this many Teams kind of contract. They're they're KADEMI teams is because they didn't have that same outlook. They're just like what we're at making any money so we're just going to get rid of it and I'm like well it's never gonNA make any money getting rid of it you know why. And it's like yeah. It's a lot of money. It's a lot of time and stuff like that but just like yeah like and here's the thing like no one cares if the if the if the Bruins win the Is the caller cop guy? Ruins the cares if the If the Red Sox win the international series like no just matters about the big team. So I'm hoping this off season. A lot of our teams look look at everything in reevaluate and be like you know again I I'm not going to disclose but I'm telling you to run an academy team. It's not that much money. It's greater scheme of things at all that much money so I want to move away a little bit but pc or console you. What do you play on most? Wow she's really staff elections coming around following off. So here's the correct. It's the it's the only correct answer. Final fantasy belongs on for you buy a PC and that's my answer and that's the thing with me. It's just that like you. I and I up playing console. I stayed away from PC. Because God forbid I couldn't afford one that same exact boat and the many ports right. There really weren't that many like PC games. Like I grew up. I think like the first game I played in. Boy Am I. Dating myself was like deja. Vu for the MAC right. You're the point game. And a couple of things and and the arcades were big too. That's why I played like mortal Kombat was in the store during the Walpole which is now just the most depressing place ever is bad because I walk the dream machine. I'm like man. I used to play like street. Fighter was over there. It's virtual fighter you know. It was all here but the turtles and time but but the correct answer is this is that is that if you can afford a PC and by God. You don't have to spend that much money anymore. Md's really ABC napping kneecapping with that. So I mean I. It's funny because like I am a sucker for marketing. So it's like Oh this by by this by built like a NBC's like Fourth of the price. And I'm like why now? But but I he so his thing so serious like like you buy a final fantasy on. Ps four that's right belongs. Okay other than that. I think you can buy console games for games like Yokosuka Tomb. Raider got a war halo stuff like that maybe Halo but when you when you play your F. B. S.'s. On on like this thing like I I have Yuccas Zero Yakuza on the PC through steam. And I use a controller for it. Obviously the switch to the second greatest invention or if not the greatest invention awesome. It's awesome which is great so you know consoles alive but I think when you play a game on keyboard and mouse I think that's and you see just the it's just the environment that you're end right up to the TV. I know nowadays. You can put your ps four on your computer monitor but this is something about that where like you can just blown up the game and go on put in a disc anymore. You'll have to do all this and it just and the graphics are better like you're not second sixty second. You know what I mean like. You're not stuck in stuck at that where it's like you know. I'm sure if I played final fantasy fifteen right now on the. Oh my God. This is like the greatest thing which I think it's up there. It's just I loved. I loved fifteen right but then when you play seven remake or you play thirteen. It's just like the one thing that fifteen had against it. Would it really missed was like was like a female? Protagonist you like listen this is not a PC thing like I loved. I loved the group. Like you know like the whole group. The knocked gladiolas pro and agnes right ignace and then you had. I was named arena. Right.

"Can I spend as much money as possible on myself in this product? That a bunch of money. Evan hasn't invested me because base. Because that's what ends up happening is allies investments. Go to the owners and they blow it on you know. I know it's a family show. But they'll spend it on drugs and alcohol and other such things like that person the front from Who is the person actually was uber? Right like the guy was like in Korean. Yeah hookers you know what I mean like people that people like really really eight but it's a sound business people that are going to be the ones that are going to have this long term life in the long-term looking sports like okay. You know how and then. That's the goal of dramatic. Is that like listen as much as I want to make money Yada Yada Yada last. I just WanNa make sure this this this and and I tell everyone in blaming the catch myself sometimes like every time there's a new sports organization that comes out the twitter Hadas Saito the biggest badass upcoming email. Me At gmail.com for business inquiries right now. It's like okay. Here's another one or they look fancy. Look a lot more fancy than I do you know they. They went to you know company A. For their jerseys jackets and stuff like that but they have no players that still figuring out their players situation and but then they'll get a league team. I says every time every time in like a league with like you know ten teams as soon as they flew those first two games. It's like we're going to stop it. We're going to rebrand we're going to change. Your colors happens all the like. I'm just GONNA outlast these people because like just because again we're sports fans. I know it's like you know the red sox will finish in last place one year when the woman and infinite them then when the just the way it is it's just an and I think that sports hasn't really painted that picture yet or or one of the paint that picture because the industry wanted to get too big too fast where our getting the stupid crazy money but the unsustainable Monday just like. Listen if I if you can't make you know. Make me a return on my five. We'll make sure they were going to give you ten. Speak Speaking about East Sports Gaming. Just getting big and all this money one. Did you ever see you like this coming in? All you ever see Sports Gaming Ganz Popular and has mainstream as is day. 'cause I we we come from the family. That's turned that game off. You can't make money playing video games. Go aside and do something else. That's where me and my brother come from. So did you ever see that million? No nope just because the fact that I thought that it's like a video game being popular right but just not like people are actually going to fill stadiums where people are rockstars out there and like the streaming or gaming realm right. I didn't see it courage. Courage was just in a Justin Bieber. Music video so I mean you're looking at people you're looking at streamers and people not even professional players like in front organization looking at just streamers personality personality people really starting to permeate into kind of mainstream pop culture in every day you know wrecking name recognition right which which. I THINK IS SMART. Like longterm for the player or for for their brand or for the individual. It's basically like you know stand up. Comics are are popular but but comedy but comedic movies aren't and again like I. This is just me like I can't remember the last time. I saw a like a a comedy. That was actually funny. You know very very very few and far between like the hangover was good. Actually felt like twenty two jump street. Twenty eight twenty one and twenty. Two Jesse. Were very funny. I actually thought chips was kind of funny. I know it didn't really do so. I thought chips with money. But you really see so. It's like yeah but you have like the bill. Burr is the the the the the gym? Geoghegan's Jim Jefferies to some extent. Amy Schumer right like so stamped comedy. Even Jerry Seinfeld's new netflix specials. Really good it's like you like the individual comedy standup going. Let's go out and see a comedy show is actually probably a better salary. Now then like you know another You know a Sitcom you know which is bit may do out by. It's all a DVR now. Yes yes you might see. People Cook committing more individual brands. Then you'll see like committing to which is which is fine. It's like the music industry right. There are more you know. How many bands either now right. It's basically all individuals right like there. Aren't that that that's probably one of the reasons why like. I missed like nineties music because it was like there was such a variety with random one had banned but man really good memorable just like the same fifty songs and I love her like the same fifty songs from Taylor swift ensuring the dowell and stuff like that. But it's just that beyond say like they're all good but it's just that like I I just want to somebody else for once so but I didn't really see again this big at all by it but apparently it was even before this like Dona was doing well and You know the the Korean market in the Chinese market when it came to League of legends and stuff like that was already baked so I think now than she starting here But I think that it may not catch up to them until like the actual Because they're the the The foundation of this is what it takes to be. Yeah a yeah. I think a lot of people like as much as I want to do that. I don't like losing so I just want to become a streamer so I could just win and lose. It does yes. Yeah because I'm telling you like that's the one thing that like I see about e sports when you see like sixteen and seventeen year olds at sliced probably the equivalent of like you know like high school football like Texas or Pennsylvania or whatnot. Oklahoma wherever is pick it? It's just that like you know on these CEO. Fifteen sixteen seventeen year olds like the whole like like the the town's integrity is on the line. You know Those big and figure those big Everett versus revere your Rivera Games right or ever. You're ever in Maldon to the so but here where it says that you're taking someone who who's not used the team environment. I'm in you're putting them into a situation where there's a crowd of fans cheering. They know who they are and if they screw up you know the EMP or if they screw up an alternate that like you know the twitter you know like like the twitter verse in the interwebs started just ablaze of like go. Kill yourself and stuff like that because you know like people in in very very calm cool and collected so level headed. It's unbelievable level headed. It's just like you know it's funny was it was. It was at Fred. Toucher the headache. I just went on one of his rants and he said that like we we as a society is not ready for. Twitter is not ready or not ready for this endless police. `less you know conversation platform. We can say whatever we want and only that but say whoever we want with like you know your real name is Bob but you really whatever at whatever and you're going to hate and it says that like what's someone's getting like come to your house in a rescue those block out and guess what very easy to make another email and you'll make another email another thing and you're saying you're saying more stupid stuff so it's but that one present saying stupid stuff is infuriating a real person and then they're going off and then just no one cares about the person the faking followers they care about the real person who said something stupid and then everyone's going on them and so it's like you know a lot of this is actually a lot of pressure for for kids no matter what you're playing whether it's football hockey or or or so for sure so streaming is a lot easier and a lot more understanding because then you can sit there but yourself and chill and everything else like that now. I think what's what shouldn't be happening. Is that you know. Kids should not be skipping school and should not should not be bypassing college and Shit I passing highschool to stay at home and work on their stream. You know Where where like it's like? It's like a lot of people growing up like people didn't like drop out of high school but they had their after school bands. They had stuff and I think he has a thing. Parents aren't really individual gains. But if they're like in a rock band and stuff like that and they are getting good grades and that allow them to do it but like you said that like parents like you know. Stop turn the Game Not GonNa make many many off. There's no future inside of it. You're putting a lot of fights and go read a book you know and I and I'll challenge someone that like this probably more opportunities in video games than if you're and no no offense against the oboe. Play the oboe every day all day every day for the rest of your life. I'm telling you this be more opportunities for them. Yeah legalizing them but playing the oboe agree. Yeah I mean the problem too with video games is such a very secluded you're interacting people but you're interacting with with them over the internet which is very different than interacting with them in person. So you kids who decided to forgo college and just locked themselves in a room for twelve eighteen hours a day to stream. They miss out on a lot of a lot of social development. I you know I feel like and you can't stream for the rest of your life so at some point you're going to have to get out from behind the computer screen. And if you don't get that social development you're going to be very successful in anything else that you do once you step away from the screen so I think that's where a lot of these job opportunities and I'm saying for like say for example right. Stop the grind right now again. I. I'm just going to go off of like I don't know what his agreement is. The Knicks era case. I don't know. Is it a five year contract? I don't know you know if he decides one day to like you know. Hang up the mouse and keyboard secret probably show casting or you know acting or something like that or what I mean like he he he could have that but again. It's just like anything else. Where like the same percentages are like in regular sports or music where just like such a small percentage actually go and make a make a living off of this. They actually go off to go out and find something else thinking about that today. You know I was thinking about swimmer. Thank God somebody's Gonna. Shell Casting. Because if he wasn't are good at streaming like what a swimmer. GonNa do and I think it's GonNa it's GonNa Happen and he's thing it's like it's not like you know what is what's what's Shaquille O'Neal to do at the age of forty two when he retires in the NBA. You know you know he's GonNa make he's GonNa make commercials for like Generaux.

"But it's just that that's where the money is made. The money is made at the end of the season right at. Is You know until you have like you know universal profit-sharing like these sports leagues have Right. Which was at all the owners are talking about which was just like. I can't compete with team. I can't compete with the Yankees. You know. They have too much money. They're fine. I'm not right. Because they're selling Yankee hats in Beijing Iceland. For example right like you know like in that town that has twenty five random letters right. It's you know I can't but I can't sell them much merchandise and I'm GonNa Really Poor Market for hockey. You know for for baseball or in Florida and general right. I can't make much money. Do this basic when it comes down to is that you need a universal profit-sharing for everyone to get involved and that takes a lot of selfless ownership and a lot of selfless basically selfish management from the top. Yep The developers on down. Make sure that because his thing like me from I think a lot of organs and developers of leagues are looking at profitability before they look at sustainability right. Yep on like you know. I'm this age. I want to go to a cocktail party until everyone like how much money I made this year. And it's just downright you know we're like God that's fine. I mean Goodell is the commissioner is making way more money than you lean on for one hundred years and still growing right. You know. In fact I shouldn't even know your name right. How good is your league are the other thing is is that like you know these other organs are having to sell off having to you know merger worst disclosed up shot because like the market. Just got way too big way too soon where like this. The non endemic money is coming in which I think it's that big good for the market. Like Oh yeah. It's really cool. They look at the team a WHO plays football there now invested in sports. Yeah but the thing is that they don't care about sports prophets if that team is not making money. Guess what you know what they're gonNA do. They're just like well. I'm going to slash costs to like the bare minimum right which goes back to. Why are there? Aren't that many academy teams a lot atop they don't see the invest the they don't see where the investment lies in an academy team. If you think that academy teams are there to offset expenses from your maintain than you got really dumb people working for you l. told you that it's it's and I'm not gonNA names nor the college budgets. How you like? I was talking to one college actually. A friend of mine's was talking to a college. Administrator are the get to invest whatever how much money and also pay him by the way to get there sports programming. Okay well may ask the smart question. Okay where's the money? Come from this up. Just asks donors right. Yeah ask owners like okay. You want me to ask my donuts for how much money now you know they are. The donors will take care of it. It doesn't work that way right. Yeah really work that way and people will give it to you. It's that easy. Ashwani people give you correctly right so so so yes so so if they can actually get together and make sure that everyone is working at the beginning so then long-term we'll have this long-term view of lake. You know like Apple Microsoft. Ibm Guess Nowadays. We're talking about the Amazon's right and everything else like that. Google's and stuff like that you would you say this day and age you know I know. Microsoft is only one thousand nine hundred eighty whatever. But it's like you know they. They started every company. Start small the that like think big and think of the big picture in terms of like. What can we develop? That's going to be so kick ass going to last for years to come like do the fire festival you know again..

"The owners for Sports Ball Right? They all made their money doing something else. Yeah they all made you know. So it's like and here's the thing and and again maybe out liar not saying I know everything with this just my thing. There's only so long. Any company can go by just solely surviving off of investors. Eventually they start hiring fat Tony to come by are looking for their half right. You know what I mean looking for and then once you're not showing profit Daytona other investment eight. Listen nothing really going on which is Kinda Slow Down Eight. Listen this was actually really cool. What'S ON ESPN? But Not really making any money you know. So that's why we think SORTA Kinda slow down right now. You know the crafts you know they have. Oh Gosh I the fact that I can't remember their name And something Oh God. The paper company that they own. Oh Jeez I can't remember the name of items. I should know that they don't but they made their money off of paper. John Henry made his money off of what soybeans? So it's like you know and then and then you have. The owner of the Washington. Capitals US went the owner of comcast or something like that. Anyway it's like they all made their billions and millions millions. We're talking aliens whether it be with a B. Okay Oh like Oh you received a ten million dollar investment from you know such and such for your sports team that's laughable because like ten million dollars just off of soybeans last month you know what I mean so so so. It's like you know. They have that flexibility to handle stadiums to handle payroll so we handle all these people that these sports solely that all people are behind the scenes that they sorely need but they can't afford them because they don't have that much money and they can't get that much money not making that much money so at some point probably going to go back to the to the old days right. I mean it's probably going to crash but it's probably going to crash right but that but that doesn't mean he sports is dead. I just think it's going to readjust itself back to what it was before which was basically the traveling salesman the how can I say this like the PGA tour or the The the the the wrestling league stuff like that right. Hey One minute were here. You know we're in Boston this weekend it this week and we're GONNA BE IN MINNESOTA. We're GONNA be traveling to Syria. I feel very much like Standup comedians they. They grind on the road hard like that before they get real big so I think that's that's a decent. That's a good parallel to yeah and again. I'm not trying to be pessimistic or a stick in the mud about the whole thing but I honestly think that just reality that no one has really accepted yet is sports got too big too quickly and now everyone scrambling trying to figure out. What's going on right now because you know we were told by you know. Abc indeed that this is going to be. What's that stupid number? They make it up every hundred million. Two hundred trillion. I this year by that date. You know the the Mayans for the end of the world by the year twenty twenty. You know it's it's like you know it's like people had their and I think it was slasher put up a really good Really really good thing about balance. It's that like like you said like the most disappointing about Valerie does that people are symphonic. Because I think that's next thing that's going to make money. Not because they actually like the game. Yeah people already wanting to go pro you know in the Beta like these kids are already like I wanted to. Key was to like showcase their skills and yeah but it's like just love the game. I and the other stuff come behind like every other sport. It's just like the the ones and there are. Some exceptions are so nationally. Gifted the don't even have to like it. I think we can all name like one athlete from each sport. But it's like you actually absolutely have to like love the game and commit the game and to be able to go through the ups and downs of the the game you know to be able to withstand this. So it's like you know as overwatch having having a tough year probably but there are a lot of athletes that have had bad years. Statistically go don't let the ones that are retiring probably don't like the game anymore and maybe weren't going to grind it out. You know to begin with or are they just became so disenchanted from you know. Listen maybe it's maybe it's the travel. Maybe it's the fame just all these things where they just didn't really like it. It's like if I just want to do something else. You know the whole break in May and in crowd control probably in the two probably just kind of put it over the top that broke the camel's back by. I think it just came to like I was getting paid to play this game but like you know. I think it's too here in North America. I think that there is a huge emphasis on streaming on earth brands where people are more worried about streaming than they are worried about actually being a successful player because his statistics showing that you probably could make more being a streamer being professional player you know but no shredded. I talked about that. He's like I prefer streaming over competitive play. It's just it's it's easier to be a streamer than competitive players. What he says. It's much much easier you know. We're like win lose. Who cares if you're putting on a good show you basically Which is why like competitive fortnight as such like such a phenomenon where it's just that like you know what was it like. Ninja like barely even qualified. For some of these tournaments. He stuff like that. Never really have like a bunch of bunch of big named streamers. All his kids behind the scenes were grinding competitively and whatnot on the tweets to actually be good at the game and exploit you know so so whereas in other countries it's like maybe the Solo Q. Environment is is different but like you know like in the Korean environment if ever watched like a like these high level like players play Solo Q. And stuff like that. I watch some vodka faker and stuff like that you. Nobody's typing in chat. Now you're listening one everyone's Ping Ping Ping Ping Ping Ping by go here. Go here. We're going there we're going there. Here's my cool down this what they use boom done like like. That's everyone says like the environment here is different where it's just like people are having a bad day. So they're gonna like you know hard. Walk the TORP able now but these is pretty cool. But it's like you know they're hard lock is because they whole like facility day. They want to make their other teammates. Have bad day. Everyone life as miserable. So maybe there's just not enough tried like the actual competitive play. Maybe it's like it's all about the streaming and their personal brand and stuff like that. Because here's the thing like like like double streams too but he seems like an off days or when he's not competing rafters competing. I subscribe to Penghu from our six and you know and the reason why I like watching him and I like watching shroud and even double his is because like I feel I can just have them on like in the background. I feel like I'm I'm just like chilling. What someone watching them play Games in? Penghu has like you know very very smart when it comes to business but he does. He started doing like these drawing things. He's talking about maps and entries like he'll break out the the What the Microsoft paint only draw Abbas awesome? It's like you know painting with Penghu with so funny and it seems like that like extra tickets. He seems to be like someone who's like a huge for a lot of platform games. Or He li- he loves tomb. Raiders and the assassin's creed and stuff like that so I think he's got like it's voices to just chill just gives me a nice chill mood with listen to him in the background and if a feeling feeling a little spunky that day I'll put on OCTA disrespect who's also he. He gets people around. He's yeah very personality driven thing because like I can't stand watching. I hate his personality. I can't stand how he approaches like situation. So it's like I. You know as much as I might like to game that he's playing. I just can't stand watching it like listening to and watching him. So yeah it's you got to find the right personality especially you on depending what day your you're feeling too so where it is and it's funny because I think video games work that way to where it's just the game. They can relate to the young people. Watch the streamers that they can relate to the most and and and I like just a chilled laid back. You know streamers that are just kind of playing and chilling and just like you know reading chat every once in a while answering thumbed. Something's in it's fun and I think and I think that we we just don't have it yet but the one thing that I wish that they would do. And who knows? Maybe I'll be press that they need like an east for its abundant. If you know what I mean you know it's to be that person who really is a in a non mimi way to kind of point out some things that need to be correct and I think slasher of does that in certain ways which I like reading reading slasher Is Pretty good too? I don't know if you he's gotTa Youtube Channel. He was a he's an owner wasn't owner of an organization to I don't know is his background a lot but he. He's mentioned a lot in some of his videos. He's mentioned a lot of stuff you talked about as well so you guys are definitely on a very similar page. As far as you know sports and kind of smell looks and trajectories and stuff like that and the thing is is that I think i. I don't want people to equate like there's just not that much money being. There's not as much money out there as people thought they were going to be because the market very inflated market if it just all if you tell me that it's going to be like a ten billion dollar market and like you know nine hundred ninety nine ninety nine nine million. Whatever is all ten cent you know. You know what I mean. It's like a like a number of very very very very inflated off so it's like because his thing and the only reason why I say that is because like I seen it and have noticed it kind of from afar and stuff like that because I think a lot of people you know I think when it comes down to is that you know whether it's college programs or even e. sports or I think they really need to do with start to kind of like you know they always like what like. How can we make more money and they always? Yeah they did the same thing we need more. You know twitter stuff and you know. We need more You know social media. We need any more content. We need content content. Oh you need a team. That's good for got to play more than five games. That season right. Yeah Yeah like the reason why Doda is so is so big is because people put millions and donate and contribute millions of dollars to the final when it's og versus liquid right or Oji versus secret or whatever or whoever decides to be it's og right. The one that decides to you know to to win that week or wherever the second place match to. Oj right but it's just that that's where the money is made. The money is made at the end of the season right at. Is You know until you have like you know universal profit-sharing like.

"Wrestling event. There which was very very video game centric. You know like what's his name To be was there whatever he you know he was there obviously because he's the CEO so he was air wrestling and and so that that's what you do like. He just had you know up since everyone is here. Let's do something. Let's invest some money into like an event here and kind of help get started a little bit. Yeah I saw on your guys website that you you had the dramatic. Beta is that. That's I read a little bit about it. Basically working with high school students and college teams to to you know help match together. Like what do you see is like the outlook of like high school and College? Sports like programs. How is that something? That's up and coming as well. I haven't really looked into it all that much. You know. Obviously I've seen a some universities in the area offering sports programs and he's sports scholarships but I haven't really kept too much of a pulse on development of kind of that area so in terms of like dramatic baiter and and it's changing a little bit now to like just because of our relationship with them with with vector gaming and Robert at gaming. You know who You know he invested a lot of money into into space and good good friend of mine and we do a lot of work together and some stuff that's going to be coming out in. The coming weeks obviously came out sooner by everything going really pushed a lot of a lot of things back so you know the. There's two things at play here. I think there are two. You know a two obstacles at play. One is selling the idea of this to administrators chair. Because what happens is is that you know you run into administrators. Think every game is not every game duty they think every game grand theft auto so I. It's tough where they think that this is to Violon Yada Yada Yada. You could tell them till they're blue in the face. You know what I mean in terms of like you know what this means the community that brings you know. Trust me like you'll have more problems at your. You Know Ed. Your College Football Games. We had the call. Insecurity and underage drunkenness. And stuff like that and fights in the stands like you probably won't get that at any sports event. Yeah you know and only that but how diverse you know the the the the game popular. The the the Gamer population is on on campus. So you know they're always trying to like. How can we bring only more people together but people from different backgrounds together more diversity? Perfect for that. So that's one the other the other thing that that that's plate here that another obstacle is the start up costs now in the greater scheme of things have startup. Costs are less than would cost to like you know. Build the new hockey arena football field. I mean heck I mean even laying down you know like it costs. Millions of dollars even built a track. Yeah it's crazy it's crazy so we're we're talking like a very very minimal investment and so the idea is is like well you know they can. They can build these things because they can sell tickets to it and they see the money that they don't see their return in You know an investment and you know it's hard to convince a college that may not be bought into it right away that like you know and again in the world we live in nowadays and I forget what it was like you know. Some country was talking about north. America works where life operates on on a on a quarterly basis like life should be like on a yearly basis. You have highs and lows and everything else like that but here it's just like what have you done for me lately. You know like I mean you had great sales numbers but tomorrow you fired because you didn't sell anything so take that you know where it's like. Listen you probably looking at like five to six years and they're just like all right so telling me that like I'm not going to see money or any sort of return until like Bo. Basically people who are like juniors in high school right now. We're GONNA be seniors in you know in college that so it's kind of hard for them to really see that. Return because at the anomaly that in an and their defense you know every day they're getting calls or requests from every club that you know whether it's the dance club the you know the The the movie club. The AV club you know all the different clubs that occur you know on campus. They're all kind of looking for you. Know for money and a lot of these colleges. Don't our in most colleges that are getting into? Es Sports Very Very Small Colleges. That honestly don't have anything else and they do see a program from some college. I've never even heard that college performing. Well let's it's nice doing by some not with us is because because outside of the big ten because like here's the thing like like the the you know the big ten like the Midwest essential part of America is so far ahead in these sports. You would think that that's where he has his worst like what's going on in Boston. What'S GOING NEW YORK? Why is like Ohio and Michigan and Texas? So far ahead of us just because they they believe like in the community where here. It's just that like you know it's GonNa make us any money like I don't know probably not you know I don't know you know maybe maybe not but like we're we're looking like ten years down the road and you know Also ends up happening here. Is that like up here. Because he has so many colleges that like let's face it like you know they're all competing for the same students but none of them are struggling for students right between northeastern the BBC. The be used the Harvard's the The MIT's the bentleys I know probably forgetting GonNa hate my guts but again like like northeastern doesn't need any sports team to increase popularity BC. Bu Did doesn't need in these team to increase their popularity or visibility right. There were focused on football and hockey or BC is and then everyone else's as high so they don't need it so they don't really feel the need to invest in it unless you know the big east or Hockey East's are ACC. Whatever it is in the Nazi the problem too is the big. Ten's the big ten big ten. You know they thrive off of those rivalries between the states that Michigan's Michigan State's. They thrive off of that. You know here you know there's BC BU northeastern and as everybody else and then everyone north Notre Dame fans basically so. It's so long story short like I think colleges in terms of college is being like I. This is just me and I and I'm not. I want to be as positive as I can be. I still think college is years away. Just because the fact that people who are how can I say this like colleges are spending more money on these key? Awesome land centers right land enters right. Problem is is that they're putting like the first person that comes into them with with with the Smiley face and a resume since I heart East Sports. You're no more than a year hired. And it's like what like the spending zero zero money in terms of getting the right person charged like what will like they. You know hire the first says. Oh my God. I'm a huge. Tom Brady always had a run. Your College Athletic Program. You know with no experience whatsoever. The hiring managers in our coaches in most colleges can't even get the name right for the title calling coaches right. I think coach I think bill. Okay manager I think you know Or President or whatever I think cam nealy right Don Sweeney. You know what I mean. I think that you know this. This whole sports ball thinks so they call someone a head coach. Mike. Why does he goes now well? He doesn't coach. He does say oh so. He's a manager. I'm just back from the burning car there. Is that putting someone who has no experience dealing with people no experience dealing with personalities. And you're putting them in charge of a of a whole wing which you know what the issue is that. If you hire someone who? How can I say this They don't have those skills yet to know what it's like to separate the real world from like from how can you say this Like the managers. I've heard of a lot of nepotism that's been pine their friends they're friends will get the primary will get the most amount of time in the land center though you know their friends and or the girl that he ends up dating and stuff like that like now. She's on the team or he's on the team or whatnot and it's like you know you don't have that person who is to be that authority figure. That is totally disconnected from emotion. Lambie only okay. This is what we need to focus on. What's good for the business more? So what's what's good for them to have on kind of personal personal fund. At the moment issue that colleges have to is that they want someone to run their run the whole program but to work for minimum wage right. Yeah so that's the other thing too and I would say to a big deal a big thing. You mentioned obviously the administrators. The age of administrators at this point in time is a drawback to just because they didn't really know anything about video games either so like you mentioned. They're they're hiring people with with no experience but at the same time they don't really have much you know grounds to really stand on as far as knowing what he sports are. What Video Games are so? I feel like no one really. Yeah Years Progress. Right now as the years. Progress in those administrators turned over to people who are younger who have more experience. You know doors will start to open a little bit more at that point two. Yeah and and again. I think it's going to be interesting to see where sports is five. Six seven eight years from now like are we going back. Are we going to go back to the good old days that I like which was just like you know you had you know brands who put teams together that you know it with very very other with very little like financial responsibilities put a put upon them from developers do? Mesa where it's just like. I'm sure a lot of teams would love to get an overwatch. You know but the regionalization. I'm sure a lot of people would love to get into college duty. But they're not GONNA get into it for thirty million the CPA steep asking price. I mean very few ords afford the first thirty million reminds Jack million. I mean so. So it's like you know they I. E that's why Leagues Franchise was at like ten million bucks. And I know when Echo Fox had sellers at sold around thirty cents like the market price but the thing is is that how can I say this.

"You know. Maybe they just need a break from the game and then when he come back to it you'll have this new found love for it because I still think that deep down inside you know people want to like this game. He had visually appealing. You know it's very bright. It's fast like you know if you play the game you watch it being played like you know what's going on and it's snowing that but when you play when you play it. It's also very rewarding at the same time you know because again it's not like legal edges where you have the same map you have different maps different objectives. And everything like that. It's fun so you have any inkling of like what's going on the game like you said you know watching those good like those solid pushes with all the team chemistry and getting everything off at wants to get like a massive like really important team wipe. It's it's it's very exciting. You know it's it's very similar to watching. You know your favorite team. Throw game winning touchdown. It's it's very it's it's on that same level for me at least and like bringing back to the game. I if I high Tier Overwatch Game Play. I think man. I woke up and tried to do that myself. Actually watching it executes the perfect so beautifully it just makes it really driving back into the game because it just looks so nice and so well done and there was a book that came out and I forget what book is. One of the very few sports said that I read. The restroom does like You know it is what it is but you know it was actually more into like the psychology of like why People Watch what people do they. What do they do whereas like me? You know when I watched Tom. Brady play like the first thing I'm not going to do is going to go home and start throwing the football I can do. Yeah Yeah I could do that and you know. He's he's definitely faster than me. Well maybe not but I don't think it's funny Like people say Vince. Wolf would races like. I'm pretty sure he did Vince. Wilford fast move could move man. Yeah still I still think random. It's like of all the draft picks that were like the most important in patriots history in certain time. Vince Wolfert is definitely up. Like Richard C Mo. Yeah Vince Wolf type came at a time. Where that defensive tackle position was all about stopping the run in the middle of that line and just three or four started coming in and it people like. Oh you know all you need to Washington news like this this basically a mack truck like no you need someone who maybe a little thinner than Ted Washington could run like a four or five forty but anyway so it's water on the topic of what's your thoughts on Brady leaving the Patriots. I guess well I I'm shocked. I'm shocked that he left even to this day. She also Brady. You know it's like no brady and then the kick in the gut no Gronk to I now and it says that like you know. It's I actually thought he was going to stay beyond because I thought that lake it was. I think it was like Michael. Faldo said it like you know you'll think about it. You wanted to say like Josh mcdaniels. But like at like at the eleventh hour early twenty third hour if you keep the Europe time you pay whatever it is you know that like it was like you know. I just want to go back but like seem like that. He just wanted to challenge. And it seems like that like you know. Belichick has been trying to move on from him for a little bit and it. Sorta GRUNK is sort of alluded to ballot. Check just sucking the fun out of football and one of his most recent interviews to which I can see I mean and I understand to an extent but at the same time you know it is your job like you're there professionally to play the game as your job. But you know for someone like bronchitis that impacted probably his decision a lot more and I was always of the mindset. That he was going he retired. He was going to do all the things that nfl you know terms as illegal to get back to one hundred percent and he was gonna come back to the Patriots. Obviously this whole Brady GonNa Tampa Bay. Kinda threw a wrench into that yeah. It's I thought that he was gonNA take a year off. You know kind of do the we thing a little bit saying and then she did doing obviously the current a virus kind of stopped a lot of that. Because he's definitely something he he's someone that needs to be in front of a crowd that's what he thrives off of which again like even watching wrestling now because I still watch them five years old. It's still really. It's so weird watching without a crowd because we talked about this a couple of weeks ago I think on one one of our labs because I was scrolling through the channels and the same thing happened to me I popped onto like I think it was just like wait. What the the wrestling. There's no crowd. Oh it was. It was just so bizarre. Can stand up comic with No. Yeah no one laughing jokes again. Take that little Jimmy Fallon could but he's but But it's it's funny because like I was talking to a friend of mine I usually go to him for a lot of things and he put it raises. You know it's GonNa make the regular season relevant again because we're actually going to have to fight for stuff is true and which is GonNa be a little fun because usually it's like joking like remember the last time. Remember like well. I guess maybe like the dolphins the obviously that that the dolphins game like last year the Eh just took a knee on you know but very rarely are two regular season games really mean anything. It's like okay. Well even if we lose this game are GonNa Win Twelve cares you know but it seems like this year like maybe we're probably GONNA have to do a little more fighting this share. And here's the thing like I know stood him didn't look too good in his regular season debut but if you look at the preseason it seem like he looked really him and Harry had like headed had a lot of good chemistry. Going on you know for some reason Brady and new receivers just couldn't get a line. He never like when when Harry caught some catches you know. In the later in a ending parts of the season I was like man he. He's got it but bray just wouldn't wouldn't give it to him like He. You know unless it was like one hundred and ten percent like he just wasn't say he wasn't safe in feel safe going to him. I'm like man he he's got like this kid is GonNa can do it in just and what sort of ironic that like. The biggest play of the game was the element drop. Yeah say the big lie or or even the Welker drop years ago. It's like you know it's tough to because like when you lose two superstars like that. I think it's hard like in any sport and I think that we're we're going to find out this year is like how good Tom Brady. Rarely was yeah check system. If here's the thing like you know there was that easy transition from five to Rogers from Montana to young. So you know. Let's hope that you can do it. And like and here's the thing like that and I think that you know most teams won't do it. I think what the Patriots have done well with that like a lot of other teams that had some success like Atlanta Gosh Atlanta San Diego stuff like that even which is like the running game action to start becoming more and more important but teams. Because there's no better way to keep your your your quarterback healthier than actually make sure the balls on his hand you will. Yeah you know what I mean. So it's like so again is it is it. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous throughout like really stupid money at running backs because like the the shelf life on them. Not everyone can be Frank Gore. Frank Gorge forever I man. He's just chugging along just chugging along and he takes them pretty big he's and if I remember he's not really a big either like he doesn't mean is not yeah. I wouldn't say he's a massive guy in in terms of NFL standards at all. But he's durable and he just that guy that just six there so I was like I think you'll see a lot of teams start to run the ball a little bit and I think that the patriots have kind of already sort of set up the past few years which is more of an emphasis on the run. We're not gonNA spend a lot of money on running backs even though we may draft someone rather high and then Kinda rebuild the offensive line. A little bit you know James James Devlin and up retiring you know I. Obviously I not laughing at it but I was like. Oh my God lost James fullback. Whatever are we going to do? But she's he's a guy but he was such a huge part of the past days and like you know once you lost him in there and let's face it there aren't that many fullbacks out there and and we had who's going to win to a Seattle was right hollister was here and they went to Seattle and then Kinda played that tight end. Fullback did really well and then the tight end that we drafted this year where the fourth round is basically that tight end fullback. You know hybrid so it's a friend of mine who you know. He's a big Michigan Fan. He went to Michigan. He's loves the the LINEBACKER that we got. It tells you know about it. And so it's it's you know it's a bill's been kind of building up this by building a defense and building a running game and just we had those injuries in the offensive line. Really do anything about it so hopefully like if you can keep them upright and this guy managed the game and we'll sort of figure it out and then you know it could be one of those things. Where were they to see how he does it or does yet again? I think the one guy that I think that we have our eye on. If things don't go correctly would probably be like Dak Prescott right now with Andy Dalton in the mix. Yeah because he's a guy that I think is a really good game manager. You know he is going to be that guy. That's to be like the Aaron Rodgers the Mahomes area. That's going to like win the game for you or the Course everyone forgets Russell Wilson for some having Russell. You know it's like is he that guy but he's a guy or if you could put the right the right weapons around him. Yeah right running back with with the right defense. I write coach with the right coach. A lot of I mean a cowboys problems. Come down to coach aime. Garrett just couldn't manage a game to save his life so funny for for like an owner that Jerry Jones is really stuck with really really double down on on Jason Garrett but yeah it's it's GonNa be exciting like in. I'm pretty I'm pretty sure the seasons that season May may start on time. Anyone else but you know. I hope I hope so. I I really do because I am like you said how you know. Regular Games haven't really mattered a whole lot. Recently I kind of thought found myself falling prey to that where it was just like. I Hate People who are bandwagon fans and I hate people or or fans only because they like teams winning but at the same time the kind of I've been a fan for a long time. I just haven't past couple seasons. I haven't really watched a lot of the games either. 'cause I've got something else going on or they're gonNA win like what I don't care like. Why do I go? I do love football and it's just. It was always at the same time I was like but I got something else. I'd rather do are playing video games or something like that but now it's like some. These are going to be exciting. Potentially you toss up. Toss up like even last year where it's like. I feel like complacency web dislike like I can make this Lego more little more out of reach for the red zone. The Red Zone Like it's funny too because like I have like I just really. Adhd so it's like anything with the red zone or life PD around every five seconds of it really really awesome. It's so great like the fact that you. It's part of like the Sports Package that makes twenty bucks extra month so I it's still I feel like I'm underpaying really will use this whatever you need to. There's no price that I will not pay for this but have you so. Obviously you guys work with craft and his group. Have you met craft? I did yeah. I met him in March nice and it was funny to where like I woke up that morning. I really wasn't feeling well for some reason and you know I I told I say wealth Mike Mike Mike you know. I think I'm taking I. I think I'm just not really or is it. February was February. It was wasn't more. I guess you know the. I've no sense a timer data. I know that day like away like listen. You know. I'm probably GONNA come in a little later today. Or maybe just not at all like. I'm just rundown and everything else.

"Is. Andrew is the founder and owner of Sports Boston. He is the president of dramatic gaming and the general manager of Uprising Academy Eastwards Boston. Just for a little background. Multi-platform Competitive Sports Company based in the Boston area encompasses dramatic gaming. So it's kind of sort of like an umbrella centrally and then there's many teams fall under the East Boston. Umbrella LEAGUE OF LEGENDS AGENCY US. Go or night and overwatch which brings us to the next accolade. He is the general manager of Uprising Academy. Which is the KADEMI team for the Boston uprising? So the Overwatch Lever. Anyone who doesn't know and yeah that is pretty much it you know. We were very glad to have you Andrew Yeah I mean. It's our first guest so it's Pretty Awesome episode number twenty as well for the for the podcast so sending-off Bang Episode Number Twenty and twenty twenty. It's pretty cool. Yeah so I mean. We'll we'll just go hang. Starting I mean like I said we're we're both pretty new to this interviewing thing but we'll go ahead and kind of slide into it so all that stuff that I just mentioned. This is cool. How'd you get started like? How did you get into these sports gaming? Like the world of sports. I guess it's always interesting. I feel when I when I see things or see people interview. Erico you know. How'd you get into it? And it seems like a really boring question but I guess it's a good place to start is. I don't think you know ten fifteen years ago. Anyone who's really thinking that sports would be where it is now definitely something different than the usual. Yeah so it's interesting to see every perspective on how they got there. I guess that's a really good question. So it's funny because like when I first heard about sports like like most things that Wanna hear about like new and exciting. I'm always just like here. We go. Here's something else that like. You know what I mean like every go you know and so I I I. Obviously I grew up. You know group game. I grew up playing like you know my first system was actually it was clicquot vision then television and then got my first and ten zero and then it kind of went on from there and so you know. My background is sales and management and all that fun stuff and you know when you when you when you work in retail and sales. It's like you know you said then you think like cheese you know. What else should I be doing? What else should I be doing in life? I guess and it was just something that just came to me one day. We're just like you know what you know because even before the my wife and I were discussing about career changes was just like maybe I'll coach baseball or referee. We were even thinking about as well. You know something like they did get out and do something else. Where it's just like not always all about me and just help others and I used to. I used to teach golf for a little bit when I worked at a golf course just like kids and stuff like that. You know short. We make sure they don't like walk out into traffic. Basically get kids golf. You keep thank you know. But it wasn't like I was like developing the next tiger woods ever. Shall we always make at you know kids get lost so And I and I like that so then I'm just like all right. Let's let's just explicit a little bit. Let me see what type of games are out there. Let's see as like again. It's just that like as much as I like watching all four sports or you know soccer. I watch every keep score. I Probably Watch. It probably probably could only really you know coach. Baseball maybe basketball. So it's like I had you know. Look up all the Games and see which interests me you know which ones a popular you know. So you know I went out and I you know I bought it like a gaming laptop because I decided love. Portability does love. You know. Want to be able to take it someplace you know. And of course I by the gaming laptops like a year too early you know where like before like they started getting like no battles one forty. Four you know. Megahertz minds like seventy five megahertz. And I'm just like I was like one one year too early but whatever and it's like seventeen inches so it's like I had order around a lethal weapon with you. I think I had. I had a buy my like my my whatever my got a little carrying case from like Iceland or something like that. I couldn't find it anywhere so it's illegal legends was when it Sorta Kinda piqued my interest. I thought it was like interesting again. I've never never played a poor. Never even saw it before. Like I I knew of like and again. I'm just kind of rewinding back to what I knew. I knew about world of warcraft. Trae UP I knew about counterstrike. Nuba duty obviously and this because I did play that on the play the campaign modes on my On the on the consoles though I just one day just went to just went to one of the supermarkets up in Burlington put up an ad because I I again. I don't know what discord was. I didn't I didn't. I didn't know where to find. People like an ad up somewhere and then You know I know someone Sar in him and his friends are like a five stack and you know and again like I. I still talk to them to this day but I did. I know I didn't know you know they're like average. You know probably low platt line cool. Yeah I am. What do I know? And so we just kind went went from there. You know so then. They knew someone who who wanted to see us go team and so That was what three years ago? And now you sort of like fast forward to where we are now where we have. You know Li Legends Obviously we have the you know the the partnership with you know the uprising with the uprising academy our we're very heavily invested also an F. D. C. Which is an awesome crowd and Where just finalizing our Valerie team? Right now oh which is which I'm going to tell you it's actually. It's it's pretty good. I'M NOT GONNA lie like it's it's pretty good we Team like what has like their their little one off tournaments and Atta recently at of one hundred six teams. We finished top. Sixteen so where? We're pretty good. We We we have some household names. You know we're doing really well. Where a good team you know again we have you know significant You know overwatch pro background but they they have the CS go instincts. Which is going to be very very important in valor. And where you really need those ceus go instincts and you can tell you know. Know when you strafing and you're holding those angles you hold those corners. When you're going around the corner are like the cross care place that you can really you can really see you know who's really adapting to it and and who isn't and ask you know so we have both coasts. It has the overwatch background. We also have a coach that has that does have that. Cs go experience and stuff like that. So it's a little different where I get that. But in terms of the in terms of that. Yeah I mean where you know. We're kind of chugging along here You know obviously you know I would like to kind of improve our social media presence but like my day goes by so fast Russia. They're like oh I can imagine I gotta get a graphic designer and the thing is this. It's so weird where like You know I. I believe in paying people for their work. If that makes any sense and it's like I would rather have it not be done than have it be done by someone and screw them over or not being able to pay them like I would rather have it not be done and so I try to do. What's ever in my means I can. I really very well could do might do the website. It's just that you know.

It's definitely the owner of an ORG is the I don't know it's I think. Being a player is difficult but I think getting is is almost as difficult if not more because you know it comes down to like you know managing the personalities and that you know making sure that You know owner kind of sets the tone the culture for everything where like a thing like our our league wing is basically self sufficient. I don't have to in which is great. You know like Jacob just knows in our coach Jake of. They're just knows what to do. And just knows who I want. And whom looking for and so. It's kind of like an extension of me but believe me you know. I'm a sports fan too. So it's like I ride those high highs and lows like everybody else from gaming feeling. It's such a good bonding experience to whether you're playing competitively or not like if you game with each other you know making the decisions to either let people go or stuff like that can be harder to because of the fact. I like you. You build such great times with each other gaming that it's like Oh man. I don't know whether you guys play you play with any of your teammates or any of the people on the teams casually but I can imagine that could be an issue to potentially. Yeah it's the worst part of the job especially With the with the KADEMI team. Yep We're like So basically my job there is I. I basically do the back end. The contracts the the Messenger a few L. Hawk will you know is the obviously overseas everything under him. You have the coaching staff. That does a lot of the recruiting. The KADEMI coach also helps out with five reviews in the recruiting.

But I'm not really active in any of the scouting you know but I kinda do handle the the the other part of it. The visas excuse me the boring stuff but you know but also when you sign people you're also in charge of letting them go and head coach. Bill Yeah I can do it. I mean listen I sign him.

"American revolution. mark Leff then show call in at eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one. you know it seems as if Elizabeth Warren is now the New Democratic Front runner yes overtaking Joe Biden amazing right big debate Thursday night welcome back to the mark within show the great ones off tonight Hey rosh Hashana event rich is the only from his hometown of Philadelphia the morning drive host on the view PhD great to be with you tonight a fellow of the night so was with Warren is had a number of nicknames over the years obviously pocahantas foca Highness I actually to me she reminds me of America's mother in law which is what I've done here America's mother in law because every time I hear her she just always seems to be lecturing somebody about something that is the kind of it reminds me of when the mother in law comes into the house and just starts telling everybody to clean up around thanksgiving and turn the game off and come to the table and I I write that just struck me and it just took it and I just said all right now she's America's mother in law well she's also the woman who's going to shut down and no offense to mothers in law in general she just happens to be America's mother in law but I mean you can have a great mother in law but I mean everybody knows and talking about and you'll understand Jewish you hear her lecture I mean here's a great example of this Elizabeth Warren has told you chill IT companies using carbon based fuel which is well pretty much every utility company out there bits over she becomes president cut twelve Bernie Sanders has endorsed the idea of the public ownership of utilities arguing that we can't adequately solve this crisis without removing the profit motive from the distribution of essential needs like energy as president would you be willing to call out capitalism in this way an advocate for the public ownership of our utilities. gosh you know. I'm sure that that's what gets you to the solution. I'm perfectly willing to take on giant corporations I think I've been known to do that once or twice. but for me I think the way we get there is we just say sorry guys but by twenty thirty five you're done you're done to be using any more carbon based fuels that that gets us to the right place and if somebody wants to make a profit. building better solar panels and generating better battery storage. I'm not opposed to them how well that's very nice of you thank you for the clip on yeah see see guys you're done that's what I mean about America's mother lie just the idea of everybody sit around watching the game on thanksgiving and walking in take the remote control shutting it off the going sorry guys you're done come to the table and if only you put down the beer maybe would have so much fighting at the table I worked very hard I missed dinner that she said that nagging to me I can't stand by the way it's nothing about the fact that Elizabeth Warren is just she thinks she's smarter than everybody but that's it she's gonna tell workers sorry guys you're done has anyone told this candidate that there are people that work in the fossil fuel industry there are people actually dig for shale in their people extract these things has anyone told you their jobs behind this yeah this is the exact same mistake the Democrats made in twenty sixteen when Hillary Clinton told the call people that she was going to put a lot of them out of work and then she had to go down there to coal country and beg for their forgiveness and she did this fake accent talking to this call guy go and I know Bo I know how hard it is you have every single Democrat who is now publicly come out and said they are against the following natural gas fossil fuel and coal that's a lot of jobs right there it's also because secretly a match with the first guy who asked the question of Elizabeth Warren you can hear him talk about these answer the capitalist measures they want to get rid of this stuff for capitalism they don't like capitalism they know that without fuel yeah it's hard to have capitalism they they know that so that's really his first point of that and then she gets into sorry guys but you're done you're done by twenty twenty five no more carbon based fuel you know natural gas for example is the reason why America's output of carbon emissions has gone down more than any other country on the planet because the natural gas and in my state of Pennsylvania where I'm broadcasting from right now. there are a lot of people that work in the shale business who are working on extracting natural gas there are a lot of people that work in the coal business too and there are also people who live in towns that those towns exist. SO fracking and shale and coal these towns literally exist because of these the resources. magic ideas we're gonna give you we're gonna let you go try to make better battery storage and disposal of batteries and I don't know what that even means another Democrat the other night at the C. N. N. climate town hall I think was the guy Andrew Yang. they came out and said he was a century now going to confiscate any car that runs on gasoline do a mandatory buy back program and then make you force you to go out and buy an electric vehicle. I just have to ask the question do they not know how electricity any batteries required charge that charge requires electricity and that electricity I don't know maybe these cars are all gonna drive at night so maybe they'll be wind powered cars I don't really know but I do know this. nobody who works in the following industries coal natural gas or fossil fuels wants to hear that a candidate is going to take away their job. nobody wants to hear that and if this election is about the jobs and the economy as every election is. it was also interesting to me is that Joe Biden is supposed to be their great hope right you know Joe Biden was the one who could relate to the union guys I mean here's a guy from Scranton Pennsylvania he lived there till he was eight. but whenever he needs to he is from Scranton so you know just run with it right and he was the one who's going to relate to everybody and he's going to capture back the union workers. no the call the head of the coal union said the other day. how to call you and came up here and said to these Democrats you better stop with this talk of getting rid of coal because we got a lot of union workers here we get a lot of people who vote a lot of people if either family because a call and you guys better quit I was the head of the coal miners union. I you know if Joe Biden really thinks that he can be the guy who can relate to the working person you would think maybe he would be smart enough to not jump on this extreme green bandwagon right maybe Joe Biden would just kind of ignore it but nope this is a primary where you're gonna go far left on the environment here any said he was gonna get get us out of coal user error already said he's going to get a set of natural gas now he's also going to and fossil fuel is well cut number four but what channel I want you to just take a look okay you don't have to agree but I want to look in my eyes. I guarantee you a guarantee you we're gonna end fossil fuel and I am not going to cooperate. I guarantee you all right. so that's what I mean in terms of how far left these Democrats are going in now Thursdays their next debate. and in this debate it's interesting because they figure they can maybe take out Joe Biden finally is the front runner and if he loses if he doesn't become their nominee and I've been predicting for over a year he won't be. it might just wind up being Elizabeth Warren it might just wind up being America's mother in law as the nominee for the Democrats in that I don't know about you but I can't listen to that lecture I just can't I can't listen to head for four years and I don't think any other person who works for a living a man or a woman wants to listen to that for four years which is why I think she is probably one of the worst candidate the Democrats could nominate. she's always trying to be the smartest person in the room. I know look it's not a sexist thing because I think the Democrats have a have a I mean Tulsi Gabbard would be a great nominee for them they hate Tulsi Gabbard may actually hate her they despise her interestingly enough she came out and she pointed out the fact that Democrats it's all about identity politics with them we have been saying that for years that we not we have been saying for years that the Democrats are all about dividing us identity politics your this pronoun of that pronoun you're in this bucket in this basket in that box and we're not United. it's also Gabbar is running as a Democrat she has zero chance of becoming the nominee for so many reasons but in particular they pay her workout videos which are all over you too but Tulsi Gabbard slamming the Democrats her fellow Democrats cut eight. he so patronizing yeah and and blatantly so and I think that the identity politics that are being used again to further divide us to further drive separations between us and purely for selfish political gain is a real danger it I've it I agree it undermines that unity that we have that doesn't come with group thank or single Hey we're all exactly the same we think the same way not at all no it's actually is still see Gabbard says what they're trying to do which is to divide people. and coming up on Thursday night you know for a lot for some of these candidates just might be their last shot this might be their last shot meanwhile in the house of representatives the Judiciary Committee led by chairman Gerald Nadler who used to be known as fat Jerry years ago because he used to be a have to your guy no I mean president trump you succumb fat Jerry back in the day but now he's chairman Nadler and as I've said to you before hell hath no fury like a former FAQ I scored so he's going to try to come after the president and what he's going to do probably tomorrow or Thursday is begin the impeachment yes to begin the impeachment of president Donald Trump threw his committee in the Judiciary Committee. now as you heard mark within explain last night that is unconstitutional because it's the house that begins impeachment not Jerrold Nadler not his committee it's the house of representatives they're the ones who impeach the president if the president's gonna be impeached. and I and I've told you this before and mark within a soldier this market said this before to V. absolute Fiori the Democrats are doing with this phony impeachment. and there are no adults left in the room. now you might think Nancy Pelosi you'll be the only adult laughed because Nancy plus he's been around for a very very very very very. very long time so will the speaker of the house shop this down tell Jerrold Nadler Hey your committee doesn't do this this is not your job your job is not to go through the exploration of impeachment that's not how it works. she has been against impeachment in the past because she knows it's political suicide for Democrats she knows this but suddenly now Nancy Pelosi has decided that she's going to join the what Democrats and say what the heck let's go in on impeachment cut fifteen do you support the resolution madam chairman now there has. I think that you should. we have to do and we all together. did you say. thank you no thank you so the Democrats are going to hand the president a huge gift showing the twenty twenty. just to try to impeach him. now as you know because you're very smart person that's why you listen to a van and surf why you understand the constitution it's easy to impeach ME just need fifty percent plus one so that's not hard but the Senate is where you try the president the Senate is where you figure out if you're going to remove the president from office and there's a zero chance that's going to happen because what is even the charge what is even the charge that they have. but this is political stupidity I've never seen before. you know it's funny too is I was playing on my morning show in Philadelphia the other day I was playing the clip of Rahm Emanuel I think he goes by the godfather but I don't call him back because it's one of my favorite movies I'm certainly not gonna credit him with that but rob Emmanuel is a smart guy and he helped elect Barack Obama and he was out there saying there's nothing Democrats are saying that relates to people nothing and the one guy that they thought you know what the one guy who they thought could maybe relate to the union guys a blue collar guys bring him back into the full Joe Biden has come out on record saying he's against coal he's against fracking he's against natural gas I mean all the things that in a state like Pennsylvania..
