I was looking at some of the other questions. And I think that Maybe the reason it's so hard to answer some of these because our parents are telling us stuff all the time and we're just not interested until so much later that's right that if you're lucky they're still around and you can ask Kinda. Here are some of the questions that we didn't do What was the name of your mom's grade school so I went to so many schools My kids would just have to pick one. I actually do. My mom went to A girl's school in Philly called Saint Maria ready and I do actually know that I don't know my mother's a great school. I know her high school. It's still there Hamden high school. How old was your mom when she had her first kiss while she was getting married and having a baby at seventeen. So I'm going to go with some time between birth. Seventeen between probably fifteen and seventeen What is your MOM's First job you may not know that about your parents even though they probably told you a thousand times 'cause they did it uphill in the snow with a bag over their head helped. My mom was a bank teller but was that I was her first grown up job. I don't I don't ever recall her saying that she waited tables as a as a girl or I don't know maybe she babysat I. I don't know but I remember. She was for a short period of time. A bank teller and then she became a dental hygienist How many cousins does your mom have? I'd I'd have to Ballpark it by guessing. Four or five guessing. Yeah Is your mom. Was your mom left handed or right handed writing. My mom is left. I do know that my mom's left-handed what is your mom's favorite flavor of ice cream. Kohner Cup I don't ever recall her eating ice cream. Are you kidding when you guys had birthdays and your family? You didn't have like birthday cake and I screwed up. Yeah we did amid probably never not. When I was thirty she served it and then went and cleaned up exactly. I don't recall her reading. That no Is Your Mama. Light Sleeper She would have to be because my father snored like that every night. How does she like Hoffy Crimen? So that's see that's something you can answer. My kids could answer almost all of these What is the best birthday gift? Your mom has ever been given me. Max You know I. I knew the answers to all these other questions that one. I'm not sure about. I don't know if my mother got the mink coat for Christmas or Earth. That my my guess is it was. It was Christmas this question.

My mother was when we hosted a family reunion. And I know that there's jokes that sounds funny but I I remember her being more bubbly more buoyant during that time than any other sweet in great that you remember that moment you were so right. I I wish that I had asked questions. And you know what this is. Just the guests in. It's a generalization but I think girls will do better at answering these questions. Maybe yeah really.

Wow thank you so much guys came into work today. fits in his ban. Were sleeping in their bus in our parking lot. The life of a Rockstar very glamorous. Oh people have no idea basically. It's like ten people sleeping in a tin can driving across the country like sleeping in these tiny little bunk beds and I'm six four and I don't fit in so it's an interesting life where where was the most. I'll use the word interesting Place the bus pulled over where you slept I don't even I mean it's it's usually know where that setting is like some random parking lot on the side of the highway and and do you get random people kinda coming up and banging on the door every once in a while usually after show. There's always some lake drunk. Dude that's like beggars is like. I'm like I am not opening that door so I want the audience through another story you and I already talked about it You had a a friend I think it might have been from what I read James and the two of you were talking and he said I know a female singer that would be pretty good and I know a couple of other musicians and you all got together did one rehearsal and then we're ready to go on the stage at the Viper Room or does that even happen. I mean look. I think you know everybody's in our band people. I've been in tons of bands before and it's really hard to find that right energy between a group of people one. Y'All have to like have enough talent have the same sort of taste and same work ethic and You know there was just something Serendipitous about all of US meeting. You put the six of us in a room together and it just sounded like we've been playing together forever and I recognize that from the first song I literally walked out. Book does so show at this place called the hotel cafe which is like a famous singer. Songwriter Place Walked back in and said we gotta show next next week. And everyone's like we've only played one song then we'd better get to work. We played that one show and you could tell the reaction from the crowd was unlike anything I'd ever been a part of before we played like think five or six shows. And then we got offered opening slots for flogging Molly Sharon Jones and the Kings Maroon five and we went from being a regional band to all of a sudden national ban. Just cutting our teeth with our live show. Which has anybody seen it knows. It's a super high energy show. It's a church of music kind of moment. You calmed up to to just let go and have fun with us and we really built our brand on that and toward our butts off for a couple years till we finally got enough recognition from the industry and got her first record deal speaking of Maroon Five. Tell me if this story is true or if this is one of those things that just kind of float so it's true it's true but go with. The Tattoo was getting a Tattoo Tattoo. Artist was like do. You should hear this played one of your songs. And that's how you guys ended up touring with Maroon Five. It's actually all true. You know we had been played on our local. Npr TYPE STATION IN LA and There was this tattoo artist visiting from New York. He was driving around in his rental car. He heard it. He went immediately and went and bought. The record went back to New York and happened to be Adam. Levine's guy for tattoos. Whenever he's in New York he walks in. He says Adam you got to hear this new band. Fitz and the tantrums. I'm obsessed. He plays it. He starts tweeting about us. We start tweeting back with them. And then a week later he was sitting at this little club in la where basically it was like three feet from the stage to the audience sitting on these couches in front and there was. Adam sitting in front we performed and a week later. We got a call that said you WANNA Open Up Maroon. Five on their huge college tour. They're doing we're like. Oh my God yes esther and then it was like dot dot dot wait. This is going to cost us a boatload of money to do because we're trying to you know six people in a van trying to keep up with these buses driving all across the country and so everybody went out there making no money. I took my entire savings and put it into the band and just kept floating. Us till we got to a point where we finally started to get some recognition and got her first record deal but so that's so interesting for the don't know how the music business works. A lot of a lot of us would assume. Oh if I get tapped by Adam Levine open for Maroon five. I'm rich here comes payday but no not at all. No I mean I was like you know you know for us. They were paying us more than we had ever been paid for single show. But not when you're out on the road and you've got to pay for van that can fit all of you and pay for gas and food and you got sleep somewhere every night. You know you have equipment it just the you know. The math doesn't work out when you're that small But I could tell you look. I spent ten years of being totally rejected by the music. Business by the music world had spent ten years of begging twenty five friends to show up at the local dive bar couldn't get arrested in music so when this band came along and we started to play from that first rehearsal I could feel there was a different energy. We played shows. There was just these magical things that were happening like. This Adam Levine moment and so I could feel I knew what rejection felt like and this felt.

"fitz" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"ESPN eight eight eight seven seven to nine three seven seven six. The debate raged on this morning. You can tweet me at Jason Fitz Hashtag. I take your thoughts on this. Is Patrick Mahomes the best ever. I know it's early. It's early to have these conversations about best ever. He's only obviously been doing at this level for two years. But I'll go back to something that Dan Orlovsky said earlier. We heard the most host unexplainable quarterback speaking of Ski. We'll get his thoughts in just a few minutes. But in the meantime if we're going to have a question in a conversation about best-ever part of that is going going to come into. What makes Patrick Mahomes CREPE? There was a debate this morning. I take about whether it's mahomes greatness or are the chiefs weapons. The reason mahomes is so great. Great I understand. The brother is great to be as young as he is that Moxie that he has flinging football the way that he he does choosing judiciously to know when the run obviously by himself Tom in the pocket all of these things are gifts from the quarterback position. He deserves credit for. But I'm going to ask you all again in all. Seriousness tyreek Hill. Sammy Watkins McCall argument. Damian us at Travis Kelsey. Excuse me if he didn't have these brothers what would they do. Let's stop. We can't have such respect and by the way I gotta take a moment to give love to the enemy. I talked about Any recall the place AIRBNB. Who should be a damn head coach in the National Football League? Get me started with that nonsense but the job that he has done as the offense coordinator for the Kansas City chiefs Ulta toodle weapons that they have at their disposal. And I guess the way I'll give it to you. I'll give it to you. Dan just the answer this for me. Tell the time in the modern era where you see one team. Have these weapons on offense together. I'm talking about together the last year with the rams when they had Robert Woods.
"fitz" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"Now we'll go to the shell pennzoil performance line what we're joined by one of our best and one of my favorites. ESPN football analyst. Marcus Spears joins US mark. Thanks for the time. How many how much crops should we be giving Jimmy d right now? Oh we should give him props. I mean obviously this situation man you heard about eight times. Nobody knows We WanNA see quarterbacks impact games like like. That's the story then carries today. Obviously well mahomes did Everybody's talking about it hot tremendous. He was the place that he made But to that point I think engy turned the corner from me this personally my mind when they played the same and I saw him go blow for blow a drew brees and they ended up winning that game. He may plays down straights Using his arm. So I don't think we're having a conversation about capable I think it really revolves around the fact that we know Kansas City. He's GonNa put pressure on you offensively because of how tremendous thing are And and Kenji may go below when Patrick Mahomes and obviously obviously San Francisco's defense has a lot to say about that but at the end of the day man we we like to have these illustrious conversations about the match of their quarterback quarterback. That's just what we have to do in football now. So you got Jimmy G.. Whose volunteers and purposes right now? His Labor was game manager because because they aren't so successful running football and then times we've seen him make some place but that consistency of going down the field leading drives passing the ball It's still sort of a question that we have but it's also tale. It's also paired with the fact that we know actually mahomes is playing out of his mind. That can't see his average and thirty three points a game and they hit We've seen them erase leads and not flinch As if they knew what the situation will be going into the fourth quarter. So is all of those things that they have of having this conversation about Jimi Jimi is capable. The bull are not in comparison to what Patrick mahomes those so it'd be interesting to see man we know they're gonna out score points. Defense is hard to play in the NFL. Especially when you talk about the talent that Kansas City has around him let alone he has the homes. Being one of the best we've ever overseen in a young career So far so is this a great narrative to talk about Jimmy G. Mash them production. Marcus magic anybody. He built plays to at least keep them there. So I've been saying all your markets and we're joined by Marcus Spears. ESPN football analysts on the Shell Pennzoil performance. I take your take Jason Fitz. I've been saying all year that there's A. Yeah but we've been waiting for some reason why we can't believe in Garoppolo because we haven't necessarily seen it and to your point we did see against New Orleans and it was so dynamic in electric to watch. So what are we supposed to make of a game. Plan devised by coaches. That essentially took the ball out of his hands. Because we're not used to that with a franchise quarterback absolutely but but I just wouldn't that be the same. I mean we were sent and said we're going to continue running. Obviously you don't have that much success running the ball. You don't think it's GonNa be that easy. Yeah I mean Green Bay them paperweight out. There the way they was trying to defend rush so You stay with it. If you turn out ten yards a carry more. There was doing then. You continue to run the football. So it's not an indictment on Jimmy that he can't do it. There was not that need to do it. What everybody is Kinda subscribing to is? Oh you open. She's going to have to do it in the Super Bowl. You'll have to answer the bail in the Super Bowl. Based on everything we've been watching from impact homes and you're not GONNA be able to run the ball that amount of times and get the money orders and things that you'll be home by running and he it's like it's like the NBA right if you shouldn't twos and you making them at a high rate and I'm shooting threes and I'm only two or three percentage points behind you I'm GonNa win the Damn Game. So that's what everybody is talking about. When you get to the point with that mahomes? Is that look. Yeah Jimmy may be great issue until you may be great. Neil Range Player but now you gotta hit threes now Steph. Curry is showing up. We Clayton Johnson. And they're gonNA force you to make three points and we we just WanNa to find out if you could make those shots as this game goes on you guys can follow him on twitter at 'em spears ninety six markets. You're the best. My thanks for joining us. Argonne man congratulations to on the show. Man Well thanks you know better. I guess than than Marcus Spears. They have on it. That's all I'm saying.

We'll read some of those also but you can get in triple eight say. ESPN eight eight eight. Seven two nine three seven seven six by got crazy dave in Ohio crazy dave real quick. What do you got man?

Buffalo Clinches Playoff Birth
"Your namesake team is in in the play offs. The bills I mean. I don't WanNa Brag Bill. Barnwell is a senior football writer at. ESPN he has consulted with NFL teams. But the bills are not in fact named after him. So tonight the buffalo bills beat the Pittsburgh steelers seventy ten clinching a spot in the postseason and bill. What's amazing about this team? Aside from being named after you Is that for most of the two thousands. They didn't even have a winning record but but now they have made the playoffs in two of the last three years during this rebuilding process. Where does this recent success begin in your mind? I think the simplest place for it to start is just hiring Sean McDermott. This is a coach. Who really seems at odds with with a lot of what? NFL Teens tend to do when they have head coaching opportunity. Pop Up Sean. mcdumber forty two wasn't like he was old but let's face face it every coaching opportunity. That's popped up over. The last three years has basically been. Let's try and get a offensive minded coach or someone who is particularly close to. Sean McVeigh and correct defensive minded coach the panthers weren't even coming off a good season they were six and ten and ranked twenty six points allowed the year before so the bills really took a shot on shark dermott top of that. The bills gave McDermott some level of personnel control. which teams are really it? Really Loath to do it. First Year head coaches but it worked. The bills had an excellent free agent period in two thousand seventeen and they earned their draft totally differently that year their previous previous GM Doug Whaley had repeatedly traded up in years past regrettable move. Sammy Watkins. Being the most notable one but damage first move was to trade down and and the first player he drafted was Davis White. WHO had a big game against the steelers? Last night tonight again squirts out of bounds around the twenty yard long. So why headed early picked in fact. We'll before McDermott joined the team in two thousand sixteen they had the twenty seventh best defense in the NFL according to football outsiders after that they started taking up up in now bill. It's one of the best units in the League. How did this defense gets so good so quickly? I mean just to keep it simple. They got rid of everybody pretty much. I mean. The fifty three players were on their roster for the final game in two thousand sixteen before Mcdermott arrived. There's three guys left in the Renzo Alexander Jerry News and Shack Lawson all front seven pieces. I mean everyone else. Fifty other players on this roster Aurora ellsworth point and the bills have drafted well. But I think what makes this team so interesting as they really go out of their way to get veterans from other rosters and saw seemed to get more out of those players in their previous teams games in their first free agent period Jordan play Mike Hide Jordan Philips for example comes to mind in recent years where he was a second round. Pick washout of Miami. The bills brought him in. He has nine and a half sacks this season as defensive tackle. That's really impressive. There's just a lot of players on this roster who either were good somewhere and have become great in buffalo or who really weren't playing very well at all or almost out of the League who have become regulars on this really talented bills defense so last year the bills. Roll the dyson Josh Allen in the draft trading up to take him seventh overall despite his lack of college production in his rookie season was pretty underwhelming warming. Bill Fifty two point eight percent. Completion percentage just five point four adjusted guards per attempt. It seemed to me that they approached this off season with a really concerted strategy to build around him in free agency. Signings worked out for the team. It's been really good. I mean it's really the same philosophy sophy we saw on the defensive side of the ball. Those have had fifteen players. I not on offense for at least twenty percents of the snaps. Twelve of those guys are new into the roster. It's both running backs. All three of their tight ends five of their six top offensive. Lineman you know in a League where so many times you hear here that a team should sign a player or they actually do sign a player because they know the system quote unquote the bills. Sort of realized. Hey we have coaches who we pay to teach each player's the system. We should just go get those guys instead and so many of those players are playing in a high level and I think. It's really been perfect for Josh Allen Alan who even going back to Wyoming. He had to play hero ball. He had to sort of make big plays for his team to win. And we've seen a totally different quarterback this shear. I wouldn't argue. Allen is finished product but he's been productive quarterback this year a using his legs to create opportunities. He's hitting a lot of intermediate passes when he didn't do that last year. And he's avoiding turnovers man after throwing four interceptions in that really frustrating loss the Patriots week for this offense. Turn the ball over four. We're times in nine games. That's incredible for an offense that really just turn the ball over at will last season and they turn the ball over twice against the steelers last last night but they still did enough on offense to victory the snap just gonNa keep it off. He will sail. into the end zone touchdown touchdown buffalo. Josh Allen from one yard out and the bills are on the scoreboard early in the second quarter. Do you think there are any lessons. That other teams can take from the bills rebuilding process. Yeah I I do think so and I'm GonNa make a comparison that I'm sure. Bills fans are not really gonNA love but there's a lot of patriots in what the bills have done in their philosophy. The bills have been great at Pro Scouting and they've really found a way to bringing those players like I said who were struggling elsewhere. who were just guys elsewhere and turn them into much better contributors with Buffalo? They've done great work with undrafted. Free Agency have a couple starters in their secondary from there as well. They built their scheme scheme to really accommodate their players. And that's not just the Patriots thing but also way ravens thing where we're seeing that with Lamar Jackson and all the great stuff they've done on offense The bills don't have a scheme that throws the ball up fifteen times a game downfield. Just because Josh Allen has a strong arm they create better throws for him that that play to his arm strength as opposed to just trying to hit a big play because Josh Allen has in his arsenal I think in the big picture. There's just this idea that you shouldn't blindly follow what the NFL does with their trans so the bills are in the playoffs. Most likely as a wildcard team and bill while the defense is he's one of the best in the league offense has been up and down they really didn't produce very much against Pittsburgh. Do you think that that's a formula that can and work in January. I do not. I think they're a team. Nobody's GONNA WANNA play this postseason. It's very different from twenty seventeen eighteen where I don't think it's fair to say. The bills sort of meant the playoffs by accident that year. When they benched tyrod Taylor Nathan Peterman in mid season and kind of just rent a hot streak into the playoffs over the final month of the year? This team is way better on defense. They have more faith than Allen and I think the playoffs actually line up pretty well for for them as a five seat which is most likely where they're gonNA fall. They're terrible matchup for the Texans who they really really gave a tough game. Two in two thousand eighteen only for Nathan Peterman the throw too late interceptions to hand the texts victory and then they gave them our tax and Fitz. When they played last Sunday? I don't think this is going to be the last time the bills are going to be in the playoffs with this court. They're really opposition to be the best team in the AFC east. If the Patriots slip any further. And I am. I don't think I think it's too far to say that I'd be the best team in the AFC east right now

Well you've made quite quite a few and very loved records and recordings throughout your time here on the planet. What what was the reason? What was the impetus for deciding to go the route of music at all as a child or as the young adult what what guided you there? I mean I think for a lot of musicians. It's not even the choice as just a necessity you know. He's part of our tagline. Did I also you know it's just never for me. I've always needed to be creative. And I was always much to my parents chagrin driving them absolutely bad shit crazy was always singing would never shut up um started out doing some musical theater and stuff like that when I was in grade school owns the data and then I want to this Annoying private school in the valley here in La and then they had just opened up a los. I'm just county high school for the arts which was the first public arts high school in all of La. And I applied there. And I got in and that was great because I was you know after your today was academics and the other half of the day was just doing your art and I got into the music program was in require You know and it's funny because I spent every day making music and I was singer but I still even to this day. Don't see myself as a singer even have made a career out of it but had when I was at that school there was all these young kids that were amazing singers. I mean you know their balls had definitely dropped and they already had like a five o'clock shadow and they were singing Luther Vandross and I was just like this little white kid just with a cracking voice and so I was very intimidated by all their skill. You know they do crazy runs they could just really really nail it so I sing in high school but it wasn't until college edge that I really started got into having my own bands and and doing that thing but to be succinct. I mean for me. It's never been a choice. You know I I thought for a second. Maybe I wanted to be in the movie business growing up in this town so I worked as a PA on movies and stuff like that and I just came back to to music. You know I I went to film school up. Cal Arts Amita senior thesis that took like six months to make and like fifteen eighteen thousand dollars to to shoot it and then I got my first home digital recording system. I woke up in the morning. I made a beat but some cars down wrote wrote some lyrics sang. A song. Burned to CD when you still burning. CD's got in my car. Drove past play and I was like. That's it from my. Add type of personality that you know like return rate is four or at least eight hours later gratification. I suppose six months journey Indian having to rely I think also moviemaking is such a group community effort. You know you need so many people to to make it happen and with music I didn't need away for anybody. If I wanted to be creative in the moment I would just wake up and make something now in in the music music that you're making though it's you have quite a big band right and so the collaboration aspect is totally necessary. Or do you do your own writing and bring it to the band. It kind of depends on everything. We have six people in the band and we've gone to different phases. Where a lot of its collaboration? Some of it's an idea that get started started by one person and brought in But I've also found you know six people on a room a really difficult creative process us now. Because it's like wrangling. Cats you know you know pop music. Popular Music is simplicity. You know now it's It's a real. You know a lot of times when I'm writing songs Khazal so right for other people and produce other people's tracks and stuff the a lot of times what happens when you writing a song of sitting in room as you basically come up with the some chords that move you and then you have. Maybe a little backbeat happening. And that's it for like five six hours in the studio and all were focused on is is writing the best melody and lyric. That means something and and connects. And that's you know kind of antithetical article to the way that a ban wants to. Everybody wants to start play and clouding the space up and taking up every poly rhythm there. Is You know but what you really need to write a great song that simplicity that open air. And then you find for me at least in terms of China ripe songs that are memorable terrible. Is You need that. Open Air to really let the lyrics and the Melody Flourish Find Your Rhythms. What you're doing and then everything everything comes around it to support that idea? Obviously if you're doing more experimental music or things that aren't trying to adhere are are not our. I'd say aspire to like one. Listen just get stuck in your head in a kind of annoying way which is my fascination you know that die kind of music is you need that space and so it's difficult for six people to sit around a room and not do anything and and show restraint you know so mhm jam sessions for that move tried and we've come up with some ideas but I find that I I. It's a difficult process because it's kind of working backwards than are you trying to fit the lyric melody into a tighter box. You know so you know to me was been the greatest successes says is paring down to smaller grouping of people write the song and then everybody comes in and then there's some experimentation and then there's the recording and the the creativity of creating I mean there's now new courts to be written. They've all been written. There's only twelve notes in the western scales. So you know it's really he to me now about the the Sonics and the the the choice of the Color Palette that you use to dress those chords changes you know because like I said everything's already been every corner has already been written. Most melodies now are pretty derivative of every other melodies already been written written. So it's like what is that that landscape and I love that what I've always loved about music from the get-go is that it transcends ends language you can play three chords on a cool old cintas eighty cents or something and it just takes you somewhere right and for me. I'm very visual and cinematic and it creates landscape and emotes something and yet there's no lyrics or melody even even on the song onto me. That's like this magic thing. I forget. What famous philosopher said all art aspires? I think it was Nietzsche. Maybe all art aspires to the condition of music That's beautiful you know and to me I I feel like I have to commit to a word on paper yet. You have this thing. That's that's almost leading me when I find stumble on some chords that I like. And then you're SORTA looping back and it's taking me somewhere I'm sure for you. You know I love that. Not a single word has been spoken and yet is sort of giving me a compass of where the song wants to ago. It's telling me almost what it is right right. That's his your favourite part. You think of of music is the songwriting like you know. There's the live aspect this recording studio their songwriting. Do you have a favorite or is it all inclusive. I mean they're so different. I Love I love creating. I love that moment moment. Look songwriting as his arduous than hard. Sometimes but when you're in that moment when things are flowing and the musical gods odds are are in your favorite day and it just comes together magically like in like five stops and you're writing with what's your band or another artist or something and is just flowing and you feel that everybody's energy starts to like nobody can sit down in everybody starts standing up and dancing to the beat or whatever that to me is is like my crack you know. It's it's my thing. Ah I wish.

Those guys aren't getting in the that's what I see from today. Now, things can change cheap mind. Edgar Martinez started at twenty five percent and ended at eighty five percent. So you can make push. But there's no baggage with Edgar like there are like there is what those other steroid guys. So in the end, it's a very tricky situation.

You're not getting so Tim when you look at this hall of fame class aside for Mariano getting one hundred percent of the vote. What else stands out to your mind that history will remember to make this particular class special? Well, Mike Messina should have been in his first year eligible for me pitches entire career in steroid era. He pitches entire career the American. League East a D H league.

That's how great he was one of the smartest players have been around and ROY halladay to go in on the first ballot. I thought was wonderful again over two hundred wins with a winning percentage that high like ten other guys have done that also and one of the great BULLDOGS ever.

"See more action from the league next benefits Spain and fits it fits on ESPN radio the ESPN app and siriusxm channel eighty Sarah. Spain Jason Fitz watching the Monday night football game. Watson the Seahawks. Make one of those plays that everybody loves but have that moment where you're like. I don't think you're allowed to do that. And that happened is Bobby Wagner jumped over the line and blocked a kick. And I was sitting there thinking, I I know exactly how this goes. Because sat in that rule seminar at ESPN with the NFL came into the showed us how the rules are going to be officiated and what everybody needs to know. And they showed us that play over and over and over again, not just with the running start which has been made illegal. But they can they repeatedly told us. It's not safe for the players to allow them to jump over an offense of line. Because the first time somebody misses as alignment stands up, the the guy jumping head and all of a sudden or or they trip over it and fall headfirst right round. You're going to have head next serious injury issues. So I looked at that. All confidently said that's a penalty. They through the flag. And I said good official. And then they they huddled. They talked about it. They pick up the flag, and they say no penalty, and I screamed Batta fish. I don't understand why the officials don't know the rules better than I do. Yeah. I would like to claim that I knew them as well as you. But that play always confuses me. And I haven't been able to keep up with what's okay? And what's not? But my husband has because he walked and I said well, check out this play. And I rewound it for him as they were, you know, looking at the penalty that they'd just thrown. And he said yet, you do that you can't you can't use your hands like that. And I was like really and then out comes the ref. And and you know, says we take back the flag. We're both very confused.

And that's what we're about to get into Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio the ESPN app. Siriusxm channel eighty Sarah. Spain Jason Fitz before we get there. Doing a quick correction Sarah on on trae stats on teams that are under five hundred after week thirteen. Yeah. Trey you misled me, and I'll never. Trust you again, I blame try apparently it is not one hundred six out of one hundred seven teams under five hundred after week thirteen missing the playoffs. There are nine teams. Not just the two thousand eight chargers. Eight others that have managed to make the postseason despite that sub five hundred record after week thirteen. So it's a little bit less dire for the eagles in terms of winning tonight's game. But still nine out of one hundred seven not great odds. I think the most important thing out of that was hashtag blame trae. You can hashtag blame trade to him. W? I N G O Z hashtag blame trip. Sarahspain Jason Fitz ESPN radio and look there's no easy way to change the tone as we talk about Kareem hunt. But the there's a an important conversation that has to happen about how the league cannot let this happen again. And you know, that some of the reaction to how it's Kurd and how we got here. That's fine. But we also have to. At it and say what moving forward is the best course of action for the NFL. And and really for how to handle Kareem hunt, and how to handle this when it happens in the future. And that's not an easy question to answer. Yeah. I was talking on well Cain show about this. And there's really two thoughts and the one that many have our guidance Lobski intimated at it. And Jim Trotter has said so on Twitter, and this were visceral natural response to seeing some of these things is you're out one and done. And in fact, during the Ray rice incident, there was a group of female senators who were calling for a one and done. And when I spoke to experts about it at the time, they sit it's actually really a difficult way to approach it. It's more dangerous for the victim who is less likely to report it if she believes or he that the loss of livelihood and job will make the family or the children are the relationship more difficult in. It's also more likely to continue the behavior because there is. No, then impetus to find his way out. You will now be jobless and in a similar situation. If they have any intent to work on their relationship and stay together. She might be blamed for the loss of the job and patterns will remain the experts say that male peer to peer rehabilitation is the strongest. It's the most incentive. So if they can create a group in which they're our fellow teammates coaches people within their team and system that are close by. They can help them understand how to take accountability desire to make a change change their behavior understand the root of it and get better than they are motivated to do. So because they want to remain in the job, and they want to you know, prove themselves to these peers that actually matter to them, not just some therapist. The only problem, of course, is that the NFL is not particularly well suited to do that right now. A lot of what we've seen has been. How do we spend this PR wise to make it look like we care without the? The action and the group and the reinforcement of proving that they actually care and putting into place ways that they can be capable of handling issues like this, which is an interesting spin. When you look at what the NFL those care about. I mean, I maybe call I'm not usually a cynic, you know that. But maybe call me cynical. I don't think the NFL really cares about anything other than protecting their brand. So there are two different conversations. Here really does the NFL wanna help the people that play for the league..

"Jason Fitz. Sarah Spain, hanging out. We're obviously Thursday night football. We got a lot of football that we will continue to dive into tonight, but the sir we haven't had the chance to hang out for a couple of days and in that amount of time, as is always the case in the world of Twitter in the world of sports media rumors flying around everywhere. So it's time for us to break it down to decide, is that nothing or is it something and we gotta start all of it with Kevin Durant because that's gonna either way. I'm not gonna allow that is that is I do kinda feel like shaking it every time I go on and the world is glad at that point that we're on radio. So the the rumor mill is not going to stop churning when it comes to Kevin Durant and all things Durant as a we've. We've been here since July that he's going to be out. He's going to go. One place is going to go another New York Post, put up an article a couple of days ago. Again, talking about his future with the New York Knicks is he's going to get out of the warriors and wants to go out and create his own destiny for Kevin Durant with you. When you hear the rumors, is it nothing or is it something. Well, normally I would say and also because I want to hear the song again that it's nothing, but I have to say that this time and the reason I wanted to talk about this on the show is I actually think this is something that's right, and I usually don't like talking about this stuff months in advance because like you said, we're going to be talking about this all season long and we're going to be talking about it in the off season, but I think it's interesting enough and compelling enough and believable enough that I just want to address it now so that we haven't discussed an out there last week, Kris Haines, who used to be an ESPN co worker Vars now is at Yahoo, was undisputed and said, the Knicks have a quote, very good shot of luring Durant away from the warriors. And then this week, Marcus Thompson of the athletics did a radio interview with k. n. b. r. and said, I feel like he is gone. It does have that vibe like this is it. This could be right here. Those are two informed guys. This is a. What some people are saying sounds a whole lot like when we started to hear about LeBron James making his way out of Cleveland and these guys are connected enough that for me, first of all to have a specific team that sounds like it. And then for someone to be feeling the vibe like he's gone when you're on the best team in the world, but you've gone through so much in terms of criticism for the way you got there. I think it's something to say that these guys are going out on a limb and believing that he would leave Golden State. You know, the the couple of pieces of that really stand out to me in the peace and I'm really dug in on the reason. I don't think he's going anywhere is because I don't think the Durant narrative changes, no matter what he does. If he goes somewhere and win two championship, he's going to have to have other pieces with him. So they'll still be he's not going, go beat Golden State by himself. So he'll be part of a free agent market that goes to another city, and they'll all sort of share that glory together and they'll still be a question about what his legacy is. I think people are already so dug in if he goes somewhere. Any fails, then it's only going to make the roar of, you know, he needed Golden State even louder, so I don't see a huge win for him other than a monetary one. If you choose don't either..

If you go back on YouTube, or whatever and you watch all touchdown pass with what you're gonna see on five of the thick. They were either.

There's a little bit. Beacon of light year though, for the mystics who while you mentioned they're down to in this series, and obviously the shot incredibly poorly in game two. As you mentioned, they only lost him to by two points and they had the opportunity to win that game in the fourth quarter. So to think that they were in that on a night where I think they'll look back at it and say, they didn't other than brianna. They didn't particularly play as well as they like to play. I'm looking at that saying, even though it's, oh two in the series. There's a lot of hope for the mystics coming back to their home court.

So it looks like the skunk made the statement, many raiders fans made saying this team stinks. Yeah, that's gone. Wanted to come in and be like, let me just hammer this home. Figure it out. I wanna make blatantly obvious using absolutely no nuance whatsoever that you guys stunt this join up just like I'm about to now figure it out. Clean up. Me, injure game. Can I can I also give some love the skunk. I gotta give some love to the equipment guys on that team and girls. They do a lot of work, the people around the equipment stuff. They do a lot of work cleaning that anyway. And so now you've added postgame funk is now being added to post game skunk funk that does not sound like a fun thing to try and get out of the jerseys and the pads, and just the stink on that has got to be unique. Have you ever been? Have you ever been sprayed? Most have not been sprayed by a skunk, and I'm knocking on wood that none of my dogs I've ever been sprayed by a skunk and had to go through the oatmeal bath or whatever it is..
"fitz" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"You before because you didn't feel like they handled your calls right then maybe there'd be some sort of easy way to explain this. But as such, it feels to me very fishy well, and I have to go forward and say, think about the statement that could have made. If if this is the real path they want to go down, this is the way they want this thing to go down the statement. They could have made it the next event. If they all came together to the WTA and said. No, we won't get in our chairs because we don't think you guys got our backs and you don't think you guys support us if all buyers can do that, even without a union, if all of them could do that together and come together and say, we are not going to any events that are WTA until you guys issue in a policy. There's a lot of force behind that. There's a lot of there's a statement behind that by coming out and just sort of leaking. They're considering doing it around Serena. Specifically. They've taken that statement, they've taken the strength behind it away from it, and they've also turned it into a very singular statement about a singular person. They've lost power in their argument in handling the argument this way. And Spain fits their Spain and Jason Fitz romo's did get wholehearted backing from the International Tennis Federation and I'm not sure how what they feel as a group were Romo specifically about the US Tennis Association or the Women's Tennis Association, whether they feel like those groups are skewed because of their direct connection to Serena Williams, right? Serena, the biggest name of the WTA one of the biggest names of all time for US Dunn's so they might feel like they are unbear- or that they're too biased to to speak correctly on this issue. But again, if their issue is with not being supported by the federation's, the natural be the core of their argument. It shouldn't be a one on one battle with a player insert. Can we acknowledge the fact that if this is the path I wanna go town, if this is the way they wanna fight this fight, if you're the any tennis organization WT US it does. Matter if you're any tennis organization and the come to you. And so you know what? We won't a match that include Serena, who do you think side they're going to take in that? They're gonna. They're gonna. Umpire, right? If I'm sitting there and I'm saying, oh, it's just a Serena match. The one that's gonna get all the ratings that everybody's going to be fired up for. And now you've given us a perceived bias in that match. Sure. We'll go find. We'll go find somebody in a heartbeat to do that. I, it makes no sense to think that they have more power in this discussion than Serena does because they are not a Brandon. She is worth noting as well that if they're trying to downplay the possibility that there is an undue amount of criticism for a woman when she shows passion and anger during a match, I don't think threatening to boycott her is the answer. Right? Right. We're saying, I'll everyone's overreacting. There's no special treatment for women. Women can be angry. Two are going to treat you the same. No. But when she gets mad at you, you're gonna threaten to boycott the match. Right? I mean, you are walking right into prove everything that we've said worth noting to. They also did say that they maybe should think about. Simon of the t. said, maybe we should think about making coaching legal because you know, further review is needed of how we can regulate this. And maybe that's part of this conversation that hasn't gotten enough either is that it's a flawed rule as much as it is the problem of the official or the player itself. And that's a conversation for another time, Sarah, Spain, and Jason Fitz it straight. Talk brought to you by straight talk wireless nationwide coverage on America's largest.
