Robert Cahaly: Measuring the Generic Ballot

"My question My question is people don't vote generically when they're voting for their congressmen or their voting for their senators Is that generic ballot I mean maybe is that important You know we do it have to agree with you I mean it's not like we live in a parliamentary system and people are casting their votes that way And really there are a lot of these there's only a few competitive districts And the rest of the districts are drawn to favor Democrats or Republicans So I think we're stronger than even the generic ballot advantage of 5 But it's kind of one of those things that everybody just accepts And we all participate in it but I agree that there are a lot better ways to measure it And certainly the best sense of what's going to happen is looking at these competitive states and especially the statewide which aren't based on a special advert just based on an entire state

Robert Cahaly: Polls Suggest Good Signs Leading Into November

"About the midterm election sort of generally right now We're hearing mixed messages mixed polls the Democrats are holding out hope that it won't be a Republican wave The Republicans are holding out hope that we take the house maybe even the Senate What are you thinking I say nothing but good signs One of the things that really frustrates me is I feel like there's a lot of the kind of establishment some of the media polling firms some of the big university public firms they're trying to impact what people think of me Some of these polls are out there And I'm not sure that they're actually doing the job A poll should reflect the electorate not be designed to affect the electorate and I worry that the latter is what a lot of these polls are out there trying to do They're trying to create a narrative They just doesn't exist This is an excellent year for Republicans We have competitive candidates and I really don't see much of what they're talking about And when we start putting honest numbers out there we see these media pulsars who don't mind being wrong when they're all wrong together but they don't like it when anybody's right And they're starting we're starting to bring in a little honest to do them and I think they don't want to be embarrassed again And so you're going to start seeing them acting like a shift that's happened It's not a shift It's been like this

Keisha Lance Bottoms: MAGA Republicans Are a Danger to America

"Here's a Biden adviser. Keisha Lance bottoms. I forget she's an Orlando? Is she from Florida? Atlanta. That's right. She's the mayor. Was she the mayor of Atlanta? I mean, she's described as a Biden, former mayor of Atlanta. Mayor of Atlanta, she's on NBC, MSNBC's Sunday show with host Jonathan capehart. Listen to this. Well, I think it will be important for all of us who care about the United States of America to call out what we see. And what we see again with this mega Republican agenda is an effort to disrupt our democracy. So whether it be through November and beyond November, I think it will always be important to call out any effort there is to destroy essentially destroy the United States of America. President Biden has been very clear. He wants to work in a bipartisan effort. He has worked in a bipartisan effort. He's been able to get things done on behalf of our country. But when you have a maga Republican agenda that has no respect for the constitution that has no respect for free and fair elections, then it is important to all of us, not just the president, not just me for all of us to call it out for what it is. It is a danger to our democracy. It is a danger to our way of life.

Bob Frantz: The GOP Contract Is for Every American

"Of all, yes, I am a mega Republican. In fact, when Donald Trump even announced he was going to run for president before anything else came up, being a person that also ran a business of my own over 30 years manufacturing in that. I figured it's about time we get somebody in there that knows how to run things. All right. I don't want to take a whole lot. I like that. But anyway, I want to go ahead and I want to add on. First, I'm proud to see that the Republicans are at least going ahead and got this contract out. I think that's very important. Now the next thing, and here's the thing that they should add on to that. This is a contract like you sign a contract. He's signing this contract. They are with every American, whether it be Democrats or Republicans or whatever. Every American. That means that we're going to hold them to that contract. It's like a contract. And here's something that people are missing too in this whole system. We are the government. Everybody that walks around and talks about the government. No, that's you and I. If it wasn't for the money, we spend to put them where they are, then what's happening is the fact that they couldn't exist. So here's another thing that we have to keep with Americans first in war. In line with. And that is that being that we are the government, then that means we are giving you money to be able to do the things that we want, not what you want, what we want. So that's number one. Now,

Caller: Judging One Moment of Prayer at Trump Rally

"I saw the same thing on Facebook this weekend and they capture one image of a crowd raising their hands in prayer. And then they compared it to a cult and people Trump is just like Hitler and it just follows through people just don't have enough common sense to look past that. But I mean, think about how evil that is, you mean to tell me that the crowd was, they lifted their arms in prayer and Hillary saw that and compare that to a Hitler rally? It's not just, it's not just Hillary. Like I said, I saw it on Facebook yesterday with the same thing. You're kidding me. No, no, I'm very serious. I mean, I had heard something about music a QAnon music bed or something, where we go one, we go, whatever one of their phrases is, I don't even know what that's about, but you're saying it was more about raising your arms, their arms and prayer and then people claiming a heil Hitler gesture? Yes, think of them. They compare it to a cult. I hear that. That's the new word. I see that all the time on social media where they compared oh, it's a cult. It's a cult, but Trump called, look, I'm not a cultist. I'm not a cultist that I don't follow that. It's just the latest tactic that they have to do. And like I said, nobody has enough common sense these days to look past one image of something. They think everything out of context. And they see it and they go, oh my gosh, look at these cult that's following Trump.

FBI Raided Mark Houck's Home for a Misdemeanor

"In the shoes of this pro life leader, Mark hauk, who is a good and decent man. He shoved the accusation as he shoved a pro abortion activist who was getting in the face of his 12 year old son and saying all sorts of horrible things, and I suspect you, mom and dad would do the exact same thing. The federal court threw out a lawsuit, but now the FBI is cracking down and sending 30 FBI agents. Your tax dollars at work, 30 FBI agents, and an early morning raid on the family home. Over what is, in fact, on the books in Pennsylvania, a misdemeanor crime. So if you don't, if you don't believe that the Biden administration is using the FBI as a bully pulpit, you better wake up

Bob Frantz: What Is a MAGA Republican?

"What does a maga Republican maga of course was coined by president Trump in his first campaign, you know, he wanted to make America great again, which sounds all kind of reasonable. I've got no problem with that whatsoever. Make America great again, okay? But the left has turned it into a pejorative that means if you are maga you are all about Donald Trump and Donald Trump alone. You are pro Trump against all else against all reason against all common sense against everything that Donald Trump has said. I mean, it's just Trump Trump Trump. You are a member of the cult. If you're a member of the maga Republican community, you're a member of the Trump cult. And I would like to just kind of dispute that for a second. And you know who else I would think would dispute that maga is all about Donald Trump. You know, I think would be very, very adamant that maga and America first are all about one man about fealty about loyalty to a cultish personality blah blah blah. You know who else would say that? Donald Trump would. Donald Trump would tell you what I'm about to tell you. Maga and America first? Or not about one man. It's not about your undying loyalty to the 45th president. Rather, and I told this to an audience at a speaking engagement last week. Maga is about 330 million men. And women, and children, not one man. 330 million people, making America great again, or keeping America great. And I guess we have to go back to maga now, you know, for a while there, and Trump's reelection campaign in 2020, it was keep America great because we had done great things together under his leadership.

Preparing for Hurricane Impact in Florida

"The movie escape from New York. Well, I reversed it. Only dummy me escapes Florida to come to New York to avoid the effects of a hurricane. Hurricane Ian is bearing down on potentially the West Coast of Florida. You know, it's so funny to talk to a longtime floridians because I'm a relatively new Floridian. I've only been there a couple of years. People have lived there forever. Tracy and barbio. The spirits of Tampa, they always thwart a hurricane. It doesn't hit the West Coast. It always goes left and always goes east or west or north or it never really hits us. And this time they seem to be suggesting it could. So we had to make a calculated decision over the weekend, I don't love it. I don't love it at all. I'd rather actually be in Florida, but I got to be on the air and there's a little thing called electrical power that one needs to stay on the air. And even though they got a great generator system set up at Salem Tampa and I just did not want to flip a coin or roll the dice rather and hope to be and plus if the power goes out and I don't have AC now that's a catastrophe, okay? If I don't have air conditioning, we got a big problem on our hands. I'm not sitting around sweltering in the heat because the AC went out because the power is out. I looked up where my condo is, I mean a level a bright red evacuation zone for hurricanes. Because I'm literally on Tampa Bay.

To Joe Biden, You Are a Domestic Terrorist

"You know if you are now, I guess I should probably ask you before I make a declaration. Are you a maga Republican? If you are a maggot Republican, you are, by definition from the president of the United States, you are a domestic terrorist. You are probably an enemy of the state, you are hell bent on destroying this country. These are messages and direct quotes will actually those are paraphrases of historic quotes that he made in Philadelphia just a couple of weeks back. You heard it. He repeated them a couple of times on other different stump speeches where his campaigning for losing Democrats. All across this country, as we are now what? We're less than 50. I don't have the down of the number count. But we're less than 50 days from the midterm election. And so Biden has spent a great deal of time telling you those awful things of what he thinks about you as a maga Republican if you do count yourself as a manga Republican. So I want to start this broadcast. By asking, are you a maga Republican and if so, how do you respond to the allegations from the president and his senior advisers that you are an enemy of the state, you are a domestic terrorist, you are radicalist you are an extreme or radical and an extremist and you wish to destroy the United States of America.

What Will People Vote for in 43 Days?

"Thinks it'll be a big political tsunami, a big red wave. The polls are split with control of Congress hanging in the balance, registered voters do give the Republican Party the advantage on inflation, the economy and crime, Democrat candidates get the advantage on abortion and climate change. So what are people going to vote for in 43 days? That's what it boils down to. I mean, in our world and I'm the first to admit this, maybe tone deaf, I try to put myself in other people's shoes in my world if you were to actually go to the ballot box because you're revved up about climate change, wow. I gotta pray there's more of us than there are of you. And I don't say that to be dismissive. I just hope more people are concerned about the things that seem to matter to most people. Honest to goodness, think about that. Can you imagine saying, I can not wait to go vote for the Jane Fonda endorsed candidate. I want that Bernie Sanders endorsement endorsed candidate for the House or the Senate or gubernatorial. I'm worried about climate change. They're worried about climate change in Florida. Oh boy, there might be some climate change going on in Florida.

This is a radical Don't let her get off with this moderate crap It's all an act Yeah look the only reason some of these races are tight it's because these Democrats have unlimited money and my opponent has for example 90% of her money comes from California New York and they're showering in these small dollar donations And all these things our candidates got so outspent over the summer that they're buying these races They're recasting themselves this centrist a lot of our candidates couldn't respond over the summer and now that we're all up on TV and we're actually able to tell the other side of the story It doesn't matter how much she pretends like she supports law enforcement The reality is all the law enforcement that supported her in 16 when she was a former AG she got law enforcement They all flipped to me because they knew that during BLM and during the last few really tough years for law enforcement she was nowhere to be found And every major national vote where she could have made her third she voted with the Democrats And as she does for the economic agenda for the border policies and so they just are willing to say whatever it takes to win and we need small dollar donors And I know by the way I know it's a tough time And the inflation crisis is hitting our donors Much harder than is their rich donors from San Francisco and New York But they need to dig deep they got to help candidates like myself and Adam Lang sol dot com And these key races

Did a Fascist Really Win the Italian Election?

"I have been in the last day or so just elated at the result of the Italian election and I keep showing W you know social media segments of the winner of that election. This is Georgia maloney. And Debbie goes, man, Dana, you're really obsessed with Italy. And I'm like, yeah, I am a little bit, but the significance of the Italian election. Now the media is saying, well, it's this far right candidate, Georgia maloney, very disturbing because there are echoes of Mussolini. She's the new Mussolini. Well, she's not the new Mussolini. She is in fact the first Italian woman who is going to become the prime minister. And she actually is a conservative. She's center right. And I suppose the only thing she has in common with Mussolini is that they were both nationalists. Well, this hardly proves that she is Mussolini or that she some sort of a fascist. Why? Because nationalism is a very common label, embraced by people all over the world, pretty much every leader of every country. Today, as in the past, is a nationalist. A nationalism comes from the left and from the right. Let's think about it Fidel Castro was a nationalist, Stalin was a nationalist, Mandela was a nationalist, Gandhi was a nationalist in India. So being a nationalist, hardly makes your right wing, it hardly makes you a fascist. People who say such things are uttering complete nonsense.

I was raised in a lower middle class family. My dad was a high school dropout. And at 17, he got in trouble for drag racing his car too much, and he kindly judged that you're either going to jail or joining the navy. And so my dad joined a navy, and it completely radically turned his life around. My dad used to say Doug, I was a punk until I joined the navy, and it gave him discipline of focus. And he went on to become one of the most hardest working men I ever knew that he went from working menial jobs all the way up to being a senior manager in the air products plant and he did quite well in life.

Arizona Man Sues Clinic Over Abortion Given to His Ex-Wife

Arizona Man Sues Clinic Over Abortion Given to His Ex-Wife

"I want to talk about a case involving a woman who had an abortion, turns out to be four years ago, and her ex-husband, a guy named Mario villegas, has found an ingenious way to sort of hit back, not at the wife, but really at the medical establishment at the abortionists at the abortion clinic. So what do you do? He couldn't really Sue as the husband because in an era where the woman has choice. It's her decision. It's her decision alone. Now interestingly, if she has the child, the husband is responsible for supporting the child and becomes a sort of partner in paying up, but in the decision about whether to have the child a woman sort of reigns supreme. It's her choice. So the husband in a sense could not make a case and say, I'm gonna agree husband I want her to have the child. So what he did ingeniously was he created an estate for the unborn and now of course deceased child, a child was in fact aborted. So he creates an estate and then on behalf of the estate, he sues not the ex-wife, but he sues the doctors and the clinic that provided the abortion. Basically, Arizona has had, and this is even, this is even while roe versus wade was in effect. Arizona has had a kind of a law that requires the state that requires people providing an abortion to provide a whole bunch of information to the woman. Medical information like all the risks associated with the procedure legal information and there's also a 24 hour waiting period. So basically what this man Mario villegas charges is that the clinic failed to do these things in a precise way with his now ex-wife. They failed to provide her with proper information. They did not tell her all the risks and therefore the clinic by going ahead with the abortion in violation of Arizona's informed consent law has an essential wrongfully killed. This child

"I remember the day. My phone got locked for almost the whole day. It felt like the most unbearable day in my life. I felt incomplete agitated and out of touch with the world. I'm sure most people can relate to this. Whenever they lose their phones. You feel like your world is over why this feeling thanks to technology we practically live online contacts made up a family and friends are all stored on the phone only be able to communicate with them. Virtually other important information like account numbers and phone numbers are all stored on it. Losing your phone is almost like losing your very self. This is what technology has done to us. It has integrated itself so strongly into our daily lives that inaccessibility for even a day feels like suffocation. This of course is trivial. Compared to what is truly important life makes us so busy that when we get out of bed the first thing we do is to check our phones for miss calls or messages instead of taking time to thank god for taking us through the night and sparing breath for another day we are gradually losing the essence of acknowledging god's protection and provision by concerning ourselves more with what our mundane workload demands. We forget to spend time with god in prayer and in reading of his word. Because we care more about what is going on in cyberspace. Technology is part of life in the twenty first century. No doubt but never should be a competition with our time spent with god during the day. Remember all things will pass away. But god's word will never be a thing of the past so let's always hold fast to what is essential to our relationship with god and always appreciate the eternal nature of his word. So let's do first things first the same way you'd feel like you're missing part of yourself whenever you lose your phone or leave it at home. It should be a priority to feel it within whenever we skip quiet time or prayer time or any other time devoted to god it is what keeps our inner man alive and strong enough to escape the traps of the enemy.

"Mean after this game we. Kansas city wins. I'm picking them to win but will be looking at the browns. Oh oh they're tough. And i know everybody thinks they're going to be tough already but the browns will leave the game feeling like we can beat them. We can read them and everybody else watching will be feeling like they might be them. They might beat them. So they're gonna play on. I think that will be the statement. But they won't beat them. The browns are an excellent team. But they've they're they're not gonna come into arrowhead and make close they. They were getting beat up last year in the playoff game against the chiefs until mahomes went down and yes. There is a blueprint on how to slow down the chiefs offense. It involves patrick mahomes playing on one foot. that's just a forgotten storyline. He had massive surgery in the off season because he was got injured in the browns game after already being injured prior to the browns game. And that's what happened in the super bowl and have the chiefs have as cfl caliber offensive line. If those things happen you can beat them. Unfortunately for the league. Those things aren't the case right now. Homes is healthy. The offense healthy they have a rebuild offensive line. I the browns are an excellent team. This isn't shade on the browns. But the prior to the super bowl the chiefs with mahomes had won twenty five of twenty six games the beating the chiefs was such a big deal. That the team that did it. I think they're hanging a banner in their new stadium. I know they took victory laps around arrowhead before their season went off a cliff after those victory laps. Like we've seen this team with a healthy patrick mahomes and a healthy offensive line lose once in twenty two months once the idea. The browns are gonna make it close. No you know. Make it close. Jenna teams later in the year when the chiefs are bored. Would that those people will make close and this isn't me being a homer. This is just a cogent emotionless analysis of the team with the best coach the best quarterback wide receiver the best tight end safety and arguably the best home field advantage in the sport and this games in arrowhead back with fans again and a mediocre defecit. Proof guys it's full back here at greg jennings shocking our top story day cowboys down in tampa taken on the defending champion bucks. Last night. i think we all wondered how was going to look right that first game back since since the ankle injury last year since the shoulder injury this year Look the dallas cowboys quarterback silence all of us in a great game rate night. Forty to fifty eight for over. Four hundred yards threw three touchdowns. Now the cowboys falls short in the end but their fans can maybe take a deep sigh of relief that their quarterback didn't miss a beat. Here's duck rush dot after the game. I'll never questioned my health or Being able to throw a fifty times or How it fill out there. I know all the work that i've put in Over the off season Through training camp just everything That i expected to go out there and be able to Leave it all out on the field and do whatever i need to do to help this team or Give us a fighting chance. We came up short Line obviously We fought hard. We fought all the way to that. In the end as a football team they were planned They got us fill. Go right there. We've got to be better situationally In the red zone Defense did a great job giving us chances when we Didn't convert touchdown field goals and getting us the ball right back They did incredible job and We'll get better because of this. One obvious lewis tough Tough anytime you don't. You don't win as assessed expectations for for this team for myself and Yeah came up short. Says all the right things greg i. It doesn't count in the column but can can you call last night on more. All victory for the cowboys. There's no more victories in every player who or competitor who competes against an opponent knows it. There's no more victories. But there are takeaways both positives and negatives and the dallas cowboys have a lot of positive takeaways to walk away from this game with dak prescott being the number one takeaway. We all know what he went through last year. And then even in the ensuing training camp shoulder injury and for him to throw fifty times which we knew. Or i'm not going to say we as a as a as a ball guy a wide receiver and one who knows mike mccarthy and how he's going to look at his opponent yes you don't you want established around but you know what the tampa bay buccaneers upfront. And so you know going into this game. You're going to have to throw the ball. You're going to start a bunch of times and that prescott. It's a credit to him in his work off the field in the classroom. His diligence to be a student of the game even when he couldn't throw the football and preparing himself as approach. This is not an easy task to go into raymond. James stadium against the defending champs and perform the way he performed after missing all of the games that he missed last season and even training camp so the dallas cowboys do have a lot to hang their hat on. However you gotta remember like this is a team that has shown signs to be great offensively but then fall apart in the waning moments of the game. So i'm looking forward to seeing how this can be a stacking of success that mike mccarthy often talks about an alludes to or can it go the other way sometimes. It can go the other way. But i think the dallas cowboys new what they had in back prescott all along and he more than anyone was confident he would be able to perform at the level he did last night. I would expect that from from you greg. You're former player. you still have that athletes mentality. No moral victories. And i get it so i don't expect you or the cowboys or their coaching staff to say publicly. That was a moral victory but komo inside. They know they know now that they are capable of something special. And i get that every team every player even guys for the jaguars are saying we put on our pants one leg at a time just like everybody else. We can win right. I get the optimism after cease and last night the cowboys. I may have missed up. Messed that up. Whatever last night the cowboys sof they can play with the defendant. Super bowl champions. They saw that there were no threat. And there's nothing going on with with that mentally or physically it regards to his ankle or his shoulder. He is back and he is back better than ever. They saw their defense could hold one of the best offenses in the league was weapons. Galore in the backfield on the on the sidelines or on the site is everywhere. There are weapons and they held him to ten points in the second half. They forced a few fumbles on them. So i do think this was a moral victory at the very least the cowboys fans are saying. Oh this year could be different. So yes nick. Moral victory well listen. Who's the most famous cowboys fan. Maybe in america are skip bayless. He i mean he was celebrating after the game. So i do think cowboys fans are happy ish with the result one quick correction broussard. There's the jags players don't have any problem. Putting on pants turtlenecks. Some of them have issues with. But that's neither here nor the more important point. Bert horton point. There's one way for the cowboys to be great this year. And that's have an elite top foreign passing offense. And i think they can. So in that regard they should feel really good and dak prescott. It's unbelievable these numbers if you look at the last five games that he's played in full so the four. Angie played last year before he got hurt in this game. He's averaging averaging fifty bassett tim's bringing in the last.

"Under rated part of this graph is doc rivers. Wants this graphic fired into the sun. What do team jordan. Jamal crawford blaker and chris paul have having common. Who for some of those blown series leads. Docs like ooh boy. Where it's the old simpson's retreating into the hedges me. Why god don't let me fellas. But so. Here's the thing chris you and i agree that the top five point guard list in our minds. Maybe what. Chris is actually competing with his guys. He played against like historically russ and harden who are point guards the way he is but just talking about like you know. Greatest players of the era rawson hardened both have a couple of things. Chris doesn't scoring titles. Mvp like but chris paul's he's the better team guy but hardened could win title before it's all said and done i'd only russ will. What maybe he will. So maybe that's where. The ranking thing does but brandon mentioned contracts and wild. I'm going to throw some to you hear zoe. Golf robert the owner of the sons. I knew you did you. And i didn't talk about this. What i knew this. Would this would make up for stealing your take yesterday. So robert starves the owner of the son. And he is. What's the word notoriously cheap. They were competing for championships during the nash era. And he's like. Hey you want my first round pick all sell it to you teams like you don't want anything back. He's like yeah. I do want something back bad. He's cash no players. I got stuff to buy. If chris paul's bad tonight and they lose and it looks like i broke down a bit at the end of the year that you know maybe as surgery on those allegedly turn torn ligaments. I think the three years hundred million dollars that reportedly. He's looking for. If the ops out might not be there for him from phoenix. Robert server might say you know what guys we're going to give eight in the max. We're already gave booker the max. They'll pretend they're small market. Even though phoenix is the biggest city in america. And they'll and. I do think it could end up with chris paul on the move now. I know where you want him. Do and where. You'll take this but i do think what's on the line is does here. Does he not get the contract extension. He wants from phoenix. He'll get it from somewhere. But what do you get it from phoenix. So i could actually see it going both ways right so if he loses and it looks like he broke down like you say or if they win and there's a little bit of like okay job is done. I brought a championship here. Maybe i go to another suffering big market team. That would that would make me a hero to a major metropolitan area. I'll just pick one out of the blue agent now runs team Let's just say new york just said just for the sake. I could see him in new york. Here's the one sort of Under the underlying narrative of chris. Paul's legacy conversation. We've been having the chris. Paul might have better yesterday's than tomorrow's for about a decade. I went back and tried to look up some stuff like twenty eleven knee issues could potentially hinder future. Nba all star. Chris paul i remember when he had his meniscus and then he had like it's not torn to take it out and there's bone on bone. Is he going to be able to play defense. Yeah he's fine. He's been five or ten years then another bleacher report. This is chris paul's last chance to win on his own terms. That was with the clippers and it was with the rockets. This last chance. And then aren't i guess he's just gonna shuttle off to oklahoma city. Maybe take alec nope. He had a chance to make the playoffs there. He had a chance tonight so. I don't think that that the chris paul story win or lose tonight is anywhere near over. I still think we see another chapter of his playing career and is my bonus take i think he has a magnificent bill. Bradley asked post playing career. But i don't think that this is the end. All be all for chris. Ball tonight for sorry well you you talked about him. Going to the knicks that would be such a nixon wealth. I mean how many how many superstars have they brought in past their prime and granted. Chris was great this year. No doubt about it and again. Obviously i hope. He calls it out with a championship. But how much longer is he gonna play this way. I mean he's thirty six. He's a small player already this year. Talk about an aberration. Him being healthy the entire year has kinda been aberration. Not getting hurt to the point where he couldn't play in the playoffs. So the knicks where there was steve. Frances whether it was penny. Hardaway larry johnson. All the older players come on man even if they win. This brought up to three years hundred million. I'm leery of giving him three years. Hundred million in phoenix. Give it twelve rather tv's with giving the three minutes. Here's what are you talking about. Here's be listen hold on. Here's my question. There's four guys in nba history. That have made three hundred million dollars on the court. Lebron cagey the late great. Kobe bryant and chris paul. he's made the fourth most money. If anyone ever. Chris paul has been rich and know what being rich feels like for a long time. Chris ball just got his very first taste of the nba finals. And i'm not saying this is going to happen. I'm just saying. God dogging. I wanna go back. They the money's the money. But i'm gonna i'm gonna die with hundred million leftover no matter what what i want is to get back to the finals and win. Where could i best do that. If phoenix isn't gonna give me my hundred million well is it new york no. It's not new york. Is there a name that maybe needs a point guard. All we don't want them. We don't need no to the player knows recruiting income resigned. That position i'm just saying that. Maybe just maybe if they're trying to play center lebron power four and they don't want to give shooter one hundred million bucks like maybe a little sign and trade schroeder. I don't know. I'm just saying there's chris ball lakers possibly maybe think about it. Leaders need to do something happens either way. Whatever happens chris. Paul's going to be out there. In milwaukee where it will be in for game six. But let's dane wisconsin talk. Some aaron rodgers will be in green bay next week when the packers camp convenes. We discuss next thing. I rolling on the most anticipated reunion of the summer is here john. Cena returns home to smackdown. It's the summer of sina. Friday night smackdown eastern only on fox for the wonderful from our national pastime. Marlins spot in five starting pitcher. Jon lester at the play. Four hundred nineteen foot blast fourth career.

Mvp shohei otani a bona fide stars. See the biggest attraction in sports. Today and lebron and chris bosh. Oh what a nice embrace at the space jam premier. Good tuesday morning. Welcome their first things first. General dick right brandon martius. Kevin wilde's snick wherever you like three feet to the right back then and you already gotten walked the red carpet on where you were. Cowards off i had to cancel my flight. La to fill in for him. So i couldn't go portly genetic. What's on your forehead. What happened you saw me. Because i sell on the worst. And it's why we love you nick rice. We we start this morning in a very loving way With a story. That really should not have been a story team. Usa basketball once thought to be a lot at this summer's olympics. Hey look now. we're not sure we're not so sure. So many big names on their roster and yet they stumbled out of the gate next edition. Play losing to nigeria over the weekend and losing again to australia. Last night and that australia team led by joe ingles and patty mills breaking beating. Katie dane tatum bradley. Beal slough of other stars team. Usa head coach gregg popovich took issue with reporters level of concern after the game. Take a listen. Healy also answer. Their question asked the same sort of question. The same family of question last time where you assume things that are not true. When you just mentioned you know blowing these teams out. That's never happened. When you make statements about in the past blowing out these other teams number one you give no respect to the other teams and i talked to you last time about the same thing. We've had very close games against four or five countries in all these tournaments so the good teams do not get blown out. There are certain games that might happen in one of the tournaments in the world championship olympics. Were somebody gets blown out in general. Nobody's blowing anybody out for the good teams so when you make a statement like that it's like you assume that's what's gone on and that's incorrect. Are nick yard pop. How worrisome is all this. Oh it's more than moderately concerning and let me defend joe vardon. Who was the reporter there. That was the subject of gregg popovich scorn. First of all you know the most concerning part of that whole little press conference was when gregg popovich was able to reference. Joe vardon's question from the last time the us lost as a massive favourite two days ago. He's like we went over this two days ago. Yeah buddy we did. That's why there's the concern here. And kevin wild wanted us to talk about the us. Nigeria game yesterday. And i was like who cares. It was a one off. It doesn't matter. And then they get beat by the boomers who i think wild futures bet on for the olympics double credit to him there as well. I listen hot to this. Part of this is popovich the. Us had lost one exhibition game from ninety two to win. Pop took over as coach after twenty. Eighteen twenty nine thirty now. They've now lost three exhibition games. So that's odd in somewhat concerning also in the two thousand twelve olympics the us one by an average margin of victory of thirty two points in the twenty sixteen olympics the us one by an average margin of victory of twenty two points. So yeah there were a lot of blowouts. And i know folks are going to say the world catching up. And that's true would agree and the roster is not that great and that's true degree but can we show the top five guys on these two teams and you're going to recognize the top by australian guys 'cause they all have. Nba experience if the team on the left were an nba team. It would probably be the favourite to win the title if the team on the right. We're an nba team. It would be the worst team in basketball so this should not happen. I don't care about fatigue. Lack of continuity win. When you've got your tatum is your worst starter or your forth worth started picking on draymond and the other teams best. Starter is joe ingles. Should he lose and so brand in all of a sudden while. I'm not buying wild australia. Futures bet my slovenia blue gudang futures ticket y fifty six to one. All of a sudden feels a little live. So i know the. Us is a lock for the gold anymore. At this point. I think it is somewhat concerning. Well listen i'm kind of torn here. I mean i go back to two thousand and nineteen. Kobe bryant saying look. It's not about the rest of the world catching up to us. It's the rest of the world has already caught up to us for quite some time. And it's on america to embrace that and understand it and we're going to win some moving for and we're gonna lose some. That's from the great late kobe bryant. That's what he just said two years ago. But then when you look at it and then you have a point. Why is he has a point. This is reminiscent of the team nightmare. That's what this is reminiscent of and you know who led that team. Nick nick writes boy. Bron james two thousand and four. That was the worst team we've ever seen. And this is close to that you look at the roster all do liked the roster but they really embrace small boss for this this team. Usa team in this roster but at the end of the day man losing to exhibition games back to back. That is a problem and like i say is reminiscent of team nightmare. We went from dream team. Two team nightmare to the re redeem team. And i don't know what you want to call this. So i'm kind of torn here while. Okay so i let me get out my obligatory ben. Simmons should play on the boom squad and it would help him immensely in his development and confidence as if he was with this australian team. I just want to get that out. I'm never letting go. It's the right move. In ben. simmons made the now that that's gone. I will tell you why. I am wearing all right. You hit workout. H i think there's too is i m hit worried and here's why number one.

"To time. Did she wasn't seeking him out. You wasn't you. Don't like a dare sharper highlight reel and you're not gonna kiss him or not but but back to your point like it still goes back to the principal like there are professional football players basketball players that have beat up women that are still playing football playing basketball right now but once. The charges are dropped. That whatever's going on we don't think about that no more because we're watching him. Dribble the ball. We're watching him score. Points fire favorite team. So was the difference between us like couldn't a blind eye to somebody like tyree keel. Which i know. I'm not a fan of his football team. But i i still watch them. Play beat up his fiancee nomex charge for and he's still playing football. And nobody's saying nothing about it. You know what i'm saying. So if you feel that. Way about our kelly or whoever like who just said in my opinion you gotta do what everybody you gotta go go across the board. I ain't got time for that. You know what i'm saying. So it is what it is for me talking about separating people from the terrible things that they've done art his athletes etcetera. Are you able to two separate than they've done terrible things you know. They've been charged and unlawful things or immoral things in separate that from what they do in in the public eye. Oh wow i came in. Highlight you off might be. He doesn't go off about a lot of stuff. But this was diesel. Schnitt now i mean a councilman sam going off about him saying what it is. Just kidding I think it on what they're in trouble four. I think it's levels to it to be honest. I don't think any celebrities perfect I think he gets hard to differentiate than from their craft or art skill. Set when what they're doing hurts other people sell as long as you're doing stupid stuff to yourself. You know you got a who is Robert downey junior who got in trouble at a whole bunch of like being on. Drugs is a breeding spears. People who do things themselves. I think is okay there. Being a person is forgivable is some point When you when will it starts affecting other people in like a literal life or death situation. And i think that now you've made it so where people have to look at your actions versus your skillset Even with any of us in a job. You're going to get fired if you do some crazy stuff so i think you know we. We're not celebrities. But you do sign a code of conduct when you get hired somewhere if you do certain things that you get cancelled professionally. So i guess we shooting that simple. Everybody knows when you're high-profile the everybody's watching but it's a real problem. That's not even enough to deter your behavior and you have way more resources to help yourself or get help or whatever the regular people do. So i do think you're going to be held to a higher standard A you should be held more accountable for some of those things. And that's not even making it personal that's just regular. Hr she besa right off. The street and just came in st. Because room was named know. Because i have kelly today i was out. I mean it was like. I don't wanna make separate diva which on streets she do.

"first things first" Discussed on First Things First

"First things first. I'm John Wolf. This is Nick Right Chris for joining us this this morning. We are down here in Miami for Super Bowl Week. We came here to talk football but in life sometimes plans change and unfortunately today is one of those days. We are continuing to process the news of Kobe. Brian Steph his reach so much farther than just basketball as a father and husband has been an NBA legend and Oscar winner. So much more nick. I know this was hard on your was hard on every sports fan. How are you processing all of this morning? Now that you've that is second to let it sink in. Yeah I think processing is the right word and I don't think it sunk in I. This is the first one of these for me as far as unlike broussard. I had no personal relationship with Kobe. Bryant and I've never had had a celebrity death that registered with me the way I know so many have with other people. I remember the outpouring when Michael Jackson passed. Ask and I'll be totally candid. I didn't understand it. I understood people appreciated Newsweek and appreciated his career. But I didn't understand the grief reef people were feeling and now I do A. I am still in a stage of disbelief. Chris Chris I win. The news came across my twitter. Feed is I think was so many people I said. Well that's it can't be right and then as the news seemingly the only got sadder and sadder and it was confirmed and then we also know his thirteen year. Old Daughter passed away along with seven other people. I don't even know how to wrap my arms around it and I am in true shock that these it it Kobe Bryant Nineteen Seventy eight to twenty twenty that that we are not going to see Kobe Bryant sitting courtside Laker Games. When he's old and gray and that we're not going to get to see this next phase of his life that he seemed to be so excitedly embracing over the last few years of his retirement? uh-huh yeah like everyone. I mean. I was in shock. I was actually in the air when I found out I was flying to Chicago in in roots are here somebody at texted me. OMG and I shot back a question mark and they say Kobe dive and it just I was like this. Can't be Kobe. Bryant Kobe Bryant question mark and they said yeah and I began seeing other stuff because we were about to land in the news and it was like a gut cut punch and as you said I mean. I've seen tragedies. I was very little kid when Roberto Clemente died of a plane crash Thurman Munson. I was older and could understand when he died with the Yankees Magic Johnson when he came out got HIV people on a die. Hard order. Roy Halladay and more recently the great pitcher. But I haven't experienced anything like this in the world of Sports Ford in my lifetime. This is the most tragic for me that I've ever seen and there are a lot of reasons to be devastated but one was that Kobe. Head transition so smoothly to life after basketball which surprised me because because he has such tunnel vision as a player that I actually was one that thought he might have trouble transitioning because basketball was such so much a part of his is life and really was his life but he I mean I haven't seen a transition this new business ventures a venture capitalist won an Oscar. Oh for his movie dear basketball bestselling author for the Mamba Mentality Book and a family man a tremendous family win. That's why we didn't see as many laker games because he was spending time coaching his kids. Ironically the last time I saw him was about a year ago at the mall in Newport New Newport or beach where he lived and he was with his family and we spoke for about ten minutes he seems so comfortable and so just comfortable in life after basketball and so. That's one of the reasons of many. That is most devastating than me. All Jenna that the what Bruce Archer right there is was my immediate reaction. Once you start the process it is. There are certain guys who really do worry about wants as their careers over. No matter how much money you're famer accolades. They have. What will they do and will? They always be trying to who've reclaimed their athletic fame and I would have thought Kobe was going to be tops on that list because he was such an amazing competitor and he seemed to have a just a almost animalistic need to compete to defeat you to have there be some Scoreboard that he was on the top of but instead he went a totally different way. He embraced he totally room. Self into I would. It would appear the things. He may be always had a passion for but deprived himself of because he was so focused on singular greatness as a basketball a player and so he gets into films. He's always reading a different book and she gets his sports fixed through his daughters. And that's the part that for everyone to me is so jarring about it and it's a makes makes you honestly reconsider all your decisions. It makes you like all of us. I you know. Spend time away from our families for career. We're very focused on broussard. If I may your bi-coastal and I spent a year and and a half living in a different city than my wife and kids and going back and forth and it makes you think like is any it does any of it matter other than the things that actually matter and Gobi was finally getting to do the things for him actually matter and to have that stripped from him and selfishly for all of us to lose getting to see what the next fifty years of a savant a brilliant person I and that was trilingual person that could show the ability to get to the top of multiple fields. What he would've would've done the things he was already trying to do for women's basketball? It's it is a tragedy. Unlike I can remember in the sports world in my lifetime so for me I was at. I was at another network when the news of the Michael Jackson passing happen and I was just starting my career. When when when Princess Di Tragically killed those were the only two that I can remember that had such an incredible global reach but we didn't live really in the time of intense social media as we do now where you get the immediate impact of of how much he has coby Bryan has touched everyone? I mean far. I'm from just basketball. You scroll down any of your feeds and he has affected just about everyone and I know you both touched on it but my question to you is how much bigger it was. Kobe Bryant then just the basketball accolades which in and of itself are tremendously impressive. First of all basketball wise on a world stage he was as big as anyone anyone because in Asia he was arguably the biggest NBA player. There you know so yup basketball wise. I mean his impact is second to none and that includes does Michael Jordan and Lebron James as far as worldwide prominence and being a face of the game but Ko Nick Kamen touched a lot of athletes even if they go on to do some really good things after their playing career the best part at least to the public of their life life was going to be their sports career. I'm not sure that was going to be the case with Kobe. Bryant because he I mean he's I've been retired with three or four years three years and a half years and he's already done so many tremendous things and so what what he was going to do. Do I mean. I don't know if he would've ever delved into politics or whatever he obviously was intelligent enough was well respected enough to do things like that but he he was gonNA do some tremendous things off the court and again that is one of the things that makes us so tragic in my mind and and I don't know if this makes it Satur- or makes it I don't know more palatable. Probably somewhere in between when he was in the public you right in the public is Saturday night the night before because they were the Lakers were in Philly and Lebron passed him in the scoring list. And so what you saw from Kobe with his tweet after the game with Bill Flash in the LA Times wrote about today was. Kobe was truly at peace and was no longer engaging in the heavy stuff that I find myself engaging in all the time of this player versus player he was so confident and satisfied with what he had accomplished in basketball that that he had. I don't want to remove yourself from the fray but he was warning now just to lift others up and to move on to other phases. This is so you're glad he got that piece but it is for Kobe's family..

"The throws throws you decide not to make Garin. Riders has an advantage there. I've annoyed coach. Someone's Real Patrick. Mahomes I've turned into an Aaron Rodgers. Hand it's one of the greatest accomplishments. It's the answer is obviously the right. Answer Tom Ryan Patrick Mahomes and they told me to be quick here. Everyone knows why the need to explain. The answer is obviously the right answer. The folks over pro football focus released in article named Carson Wentz the best quarterback that 2016 draft class doc was second. Jared Goff came in third. Brian Best quarterback from that twenty sixteen classes blank. I'm GonNa win and I think for the reasons that you know. He's big. He's strong. He has all the ability to do it. Also he's getting better. I think deck has improved the entire season this year compared to last year. We'll see how things change in Dallas for him with a new coach coach and things like that but I think Carson Wentz has a consistency of Doug Peterson his head coach. Still there. He got better with the health. He'll be a much better quarterback as his career goes on it to me it it. It's that he wins in every statistical category including winning and health availability and then you also look at the fact that the way. He's he's received by his teammates. And that's one of things that has been talked about with Wentz. He's he's been well received there and he's the greatest value a later on draft. Pick the value part though unfortunately unfortunately for the cowboys ended the final game of their season. This year I think wants his better. I understand that I'm a numbers guy. And the numbers say it's very close and that actually we might have an ed certainly on the totality of their careers. But when I watched them play I look at cars once and I say oh. That should be a top five quarterback in this league for a long time If he can stay healthy Dacca. I don't see that with him and I think a lot of those numbers at least this year came in games. We didn't play well early and then accumulated a lot of yards words late for a lot of reasons I see Carson Wentz this exactly right though. Golf is third of the three. Even though he's number one pick of the draft cutch. Thanks for hanging out today. Hey appreciate you oh you tomorrow. Lee Will. Tomorrow's another challenge hopefully mark.

"Celebrate on the plane probably but I'm just happy we've got a great raw going on right now he's gotTa keep going. You know when you get to the super bowl the thirteen th. There's so many things that I like about him and then dusty told me this morning he went around and learned. Everyone's name on the entire security staff. Everyone in the building still really great guy and he seems to be handling the moment very well. NECAS anyone beating the Ravens in the AFC Ravens right right now. Are the best team in football. This sees I don't think anyone would object to that. A they're on an eleven game winning streak if you like the. I love football. Outsiders they have really smart albeit nerdy. Stats Devi Oei. Says this is one of the top ten teams through fifteen games of the last thirty years that this is a few spots. Behind the undefeated patriots. the number one team on that list is the ninety one Washington team that this is right now a team that is playing like an all time team. Is anyone beating them. I think can't sit. He's got the best shot of anybody. Can City was my pick before the year in Kansas City. Right now is playing. Its best football of of the season bar. None the Ravens defense. The last three months two and a half months has been exceptional the chiefs defense last five weeks in the best defense in football and they still have that guy right there and I do wonder to me there are three legitimate questions for Baltimore. One is after last week's game. Health is was marking working room. was that was that a cramp or is that a real capturing neither immoral I think MD MRI today. He is a critical component to their offense. Another mark. Mark Andrews got banged up and we saw Lamar pop dried up. Lamar took a big shot. As a big hassle. One question is health. The other question is how much will the layoff hurt them. I'm sure Baltimore. Wish they could just keep playing. They've won eleven games in a row. They haven't really even aside from the San Francisco game been tested into ended the fourth quarter and most of these games. They now the week seventeen game. We don't know who's GonNa play but we know they know doesn't matter then they have a week off. Then they're going to be coming playing a team whomever it is just WANNA playoff game and seemingly is feeling good about themselves and the last question and this one is not. Because it's Lamar. It would be the quays as for any young quarterback that either has no playoff experience or their only playoff experience as bad which is how will lamar in the postseason. Those are two me three real. Oh questions the chiefs on the other hand right now at the healthiest. They've been all year. They are the hottest they've been all year to go along with Baltimore but they obviously you're going to have to keep going keep playing because is there seatings not yet settled in. They could get the buy and we know Patrick Mahomes can perform in the playoffs for all those reasons. The chiefs are still my pick taking nothing away from Baltimore. Baltimore probably be a four point favorite in the AFC championship game at home. And they've earned that given what they've done. This is easy to make the case of Baltimore. I mean among the things you mentioned but also John Harbaugh. He is a proven super bowl. Champion coach Andy. Reid I like Andy Reid but a lot of people I think he's a Mike Dantonio in the NFL. He has not gotten it done in post that he has been to. The Super Bowl would obviously hasn't won. So that is a question mark but I I do think you can make a case for the chiefs. Another question with with Jackson that you didn't bring up or Baltimore General. What if they get behind? Okay okay. Now they were behind the Cleveland yesterday as you six. Oh but as you said. Cleveland made some dumb mistakes and play calls stuff. Time management at the end of the first half. Kansas City won't do that. Kansas City is also that team that can put them in a hole with him in thirteen. Whole a twenty seven whole something like that with their offense so if they get behind obviously you gotta start throwing the ball as well as Lamar has thrown it? He's been throwing it with the threat of the run when you know you've got a pass because they're behind and time is short. How is he going to respond you? You talked last week about they have. They still don't get their receivers involved. Who knows is mainly two running backs and tight ends and so that's another thing that Kansas City with their new defense playing playing well as you mentioned great against the past hops in the League against the past lately they also seven in one on the road so this is a team that can travel so I do think there's an argument to be made? The Kansas City can prevail. Let me add one other thing for Baltimore because even if you're watching right now you're like I don't believe in the chiefs chiefs are gonNA lose to the titans the Ravens are gonna Costa whom ever comes out of the. AFC is going to be in for a monster opponent in the super bowl the right now in the in the NFL of the six best teams in football four of them play in the NFC. One of them's playing tonight. We saw one of them yesterday with a big comeback against the titans in New Orleans. Seattle obviously fell on. Its face a bit San Francisco with a big comeback into the rams so whomever comes out of the. AFC is going to face. What I think is the best team of the Superior Conference in the Super Bowl whether that's Baltimore camp but I definitely think of those two teams and I'll even throw in New England as a third team? I think those Oh street teams can play with whoever comes out. Thank you for listening to the first things first.
