"Him. Knocked him out embarrassed them. Baddest man on the planet. Nobody can beat him. Maybe the greatest heavyweight we had ever seen. All right, All right. You know what? You've got to get yourself back up on the map. All right. I'm gonna name you every fighter. Mike Tyson fought between Buster Douglas and finding Evander Holyfield now it was six years later because of the jail sentence. This is every fighter he fought after. Buster Douglas, Henry Tillman, Alec Stewart Donovan Roddick, who he fought twice. Peter McNeeley, Buster Mathis Jr Frank Bruno, Bruce Seldon, and then we get to a Vander Holyfield November 9th 1996. You guessed it. Hey, lost. He then got a rematch against the exact same individual and all time. Great. You guys know what happened? He bit his ear. Not once, but twice. Anybody is here because he was losing. Let's call it what it was. Ah! Vander Holyfield was given Mike all kind of fits. He knew he couldn't be Evander Holyfield. He got mad, so he bit Evander Holyfield. That's what happened. There's no other way to look at that fight. If you gone back and watched it, then what I just said Mike was getting beat up for the second time he got knocked out the first time. Keeping goes back. So fight Evander in the rematch that we all were waiting for. And he got beat up again. That's what happened. He got beat up again. All right. You know what happens, man. Real fighters lose so He's never been anybody good that was in their prime. So far in this Mike Tyson's story that we're going through. He lost in one of the biggest upsets in the history of boxing to a guy that we never heard of before. At one point and then never heard of since. His biggest wind up to this point after 39 fights. It's Trevor Burbank. That's his big fight. That's Mike's big fight unless you want to give him Larry Holmes. I don't want to disrespect Larry Holmes all time. Great. He fought the Tampa Bay Buccaneers version of Larry Holmes and not the New England Patriots version. I don't know how much that counts. But if you guys want to give him Larry Holmes cool, he be Larry Holmes. Were then fast forwarding after he got the beats by Evander Holyfield. He then has one more big fight in his career. You guys remember? Lennox Lewis. He was calling Lennox Lewis out. You remember? I'm the most brutal and ruthless champion there ever been. My style is him. You know the same. This is how we fights leading up to that. Francis both wah. Hold the North. Julius Francis Liu several Reese, Andrew Galata, Brian Nielsen. I mean he's fighting. All time greats. We then get to Lennox Lewis. You remember Tyson was talking big stuff heading into that fight against Lennox Lewis. He wanted all the smoke against Lennox Lewis. You know what happened Like what happened every single time. Mike was in a big fight against a real opponent. He got knocked out. I'm here telling you that Mike Tyson's career is a myth. It is a fabrication. It is a made up thing by Don King. It was handcrafted, this fighter who had incredible hand speed and incredible power, toe fight tow mater cans and bombs. To become The most marketable fighter. We had seen this side of Ali Boxing needed the star. They needed somebody who could sell it, Sport. That's not really what Larry Holmes Woz George Foreman was on the way out. They needed somebody like this toe help move units, and they saw this kid from Catskill, New York, who had the hand speed and the power and he had the ability to be a star. And in a W W E Vince McMahon kind of way I think the fix was in Idea or anybody. Will open up the phone lines here. 855 to 1 to 4 to 27. What am I missing with Mike Tyson? I'm only 32. So some of you who are a little older than me are very happy to call up here. We can have a good conversation a productive conversation and tell me what I missed. But any fighter that you name that is an all time. Great. I can pull up their track record. I can pull up who they beat. Think about how we talk about Floyd, and we talk about Floyd like he's ducked every fighter. Well, Floyd fought and beat every fighter. He be Oscar De La Hoya. He beat Canelo. He beat Manny Pack yell, He beat Shane Mosley. Say what you want about Floyd Mayweather. There's not these holes in his resume. And whenever he was matched up against somebody who we deemed to be an all time, great or somebody that you would pay to watch him fight, not just pay to watch, Floyd, But you're paying a watch Floyd Fight X Floyd comes out there and candles business. That ain't what Mike Tyson. His track record is telling me it's telling me he could get beat by somebody who was in nearly a skilled is him. It's telling me when he goes up against other all time greats. As in a Vander Holyfield, he could get knocked out once he could be on the verge of getting knocked out again before he gets mad and bites his ear. It tells me that when he fights Lennox Lewis, who's an all time great heavyweight, and maybe one of them or underappreciated heavyweights of all time, he got knocked down the eighth round. Point to me, the Mike Tyson win or winds that shows he's a great fighter wears his resume because any great fighter.

"To breath their disassociate myself from the preceding remarks Chris Wallace. That's a new one like that. That might be the best that might very good. But I want you to keep working on it. I know what percentage of your you. And your staff's creative juices. Do you think is spent coming up with introductions to me? I would say how many hours in a date twenty four. I would say twenty okay. Twenty days a week in the words of Paul McCartney right who never really amounted to much Frank Bruno. By the way, deserves a lot of the credits. He's his voice his creativity as well as Eric work it on that Eric who I've never met seems to be do a great job. He wants me to stay in the studio. Not go beyond the glass. I think a lot of us who you know. Don't don't touch the animals the fully. Hey, chris. What was it like seeing Bill Hemmer? Do such a great job as your replacement on Sunday. Not that good. I wasn't. I was not pleased. I've watched about five minutes of it. And I said, well, this isn't any fun. Let's be honest. I mean, I'm sure you're you take a ton of time off, and you see how the people sitting there. And you must hate it. When you think will that guy could replace me in all seriousness I ever ever watch. When I'm not on almost never invest. If your ears. Is it is it because you're scared that somebody is going to be better than you. I don't honestly they did a study and it's impossible for that to happen. But for somebody better, I'm gonna tell you the story about my father. So, you know, Mike Wallace and everybody thinks that he legendary and one of the things as you. Well know is nobody is more neurotic than those of us in on TV. I mean, we're all we all are completely nuts and completely convinced that we're hanging on by our fingernails, no matter how successful we are. So my father this was early in his career that early but certainly earlier than sixty minutes. This is back in the mid nineteen sixties and he was doing the CBS morning news. And there was a fellow named read Collins who used to be on the radio for CBS news. But when my father went away, he would he would substitute for him in the CBS morning news is I say back in sixty five sixty six and my father was in a swim. It every time that read Collins was going to replace him. And they'd take him off the CBS news and put on Reed college read Collins, had no. This great deep baritone radio voice by father was just aired to death of them. Really? Yes. Did he come home and say that or later in just mind meld, it how do you think he obviously communicated it to me? Well, that's interesting. I think it also shows most people say who have watched sports if you listen to these superstars you have a chance to talk to them, they feel they have proved themselves every day that Astro. And I remember the one example, I always give because I coached for longest time, and I will bring in clips, and I show Derek jeeter on gay Mike sixty seven have a fly ball into the stands. He runs by the third baseman and dives into the second row and makes the catch and he comes up bloody throws the ball in. And I had questioned. I said why did he do it? They had a question for you do because that's where the ball was not a guy I make twenty two million dollars. It's not even my ball is a meaningless game in one hundred sixty two. But that's where the ball was. And you have to have that attitude everyday someone's catching up to you and every day you have to prove yourself. So why do you not watch the people who replace it? And I will tell us honestly. Some of them. I think this is a lot better show with this replacement for Brian right? Your tweets, Chris. And I know that for sure I'd never listen you that's alive because I don't tweet. So a couple of things because I think about what a missing more in the news. And every time I take off for about ten years something significant would happen. I remember I took off today. Cle- shake Mohammed was caught every time before during the Trump days. It was something happening with there was impossible to forecast that I had to take off. And it'd be something going on the news, and I'd be rolling my eyes spiracy. I remember the CIA, you know, they they run the world. And they look at all the stuff that trilateral commission Bryant's off. Let's let's a little bit less story at Henry zone or maybe Pete hegseth on. So let's we'll give some news to great anchors in their own in their own way. But they're not mad and the other thing is I've member booked to cruise with my family, and I'm looking forward to it. And all of a sudden, I get a call, and they say can you hold for? Can you get an Email? They say we and the my Yahoo is rest who's who's they it was the White House. So I'm going my goodness. George Bush, the white what do they need? So I call and they say the president wants you to MC some military event on the on the south on and I go when is it? And it was the day I'm going on the cruise. So for you when you lives by their so big deal for me. I don't think I had even took it a tour at the White House by that point. So that was doused part of the island will never watch that show. So that's a may give too much information. Okay. Yeah. It's okay. For the cruise kind nodded off there for a minute. But I'm so ready for this. Sure. Here is will William Barr yesterday. Cohen you're not suggesting though that spine occurred. I don't well. I guess you could I think there's spying did occur. So with that so many were beside themselves. I was not are you surprised about the uproar? No, I'm not. And I think if he had all to do over again because he kind of at the end said looking back on this. What I'm really saying is that there was surveilled that went on which is probably a better word, and we need to say whether or not it was legitimate. But there was a I guess the word they use is sufficient predicate for it of sufficient basis to to have that surveillance. And, you know, look, I think it's an absolutely legitimate question. I think that should be fully investigated. You're going to have the inspector General Michael Horowitz of the Justice department and independent person who was pretty tough on the FBI on the way they handled the Clinton investigation supposedly according to William bar by may or June. They're going to say whether there was anything improper in actions by the FBI of. And the flies aren't and all of that in the handling of the Trump investigation. And if there's something that he doesn't panel or he was unable to come up with because of limitations of his power. Then you know, maybe we end up. I hate to say it with another special council because I think we're all tired of that. But I think that bars rhetoric, and I know a lot of people have grave doubts about it. I'm not saying, I don't I'm just saying I think he got a little bit ahead of himself. And I think to say there was surveilled that were actions we need to investigate him. I concerned about it. I don't have any problem with any of that. I Chris UI show is good great on Sundays and white. So different is because you study the the things that Trump did wrong and makes them vulnerable towards this mother investigation. And you also look at the other side and say what the heck was going on with these text messages in his Peter Struck and these any McCabe who. Had a criminal referral and Komi. And what what do you want him because his interesting things in both storylines, and they're Chuck Todd's, and the others have no idea, what is going on that it is not some crazy. Tinfoil hat series of stories that Donald Trump feels like he was spied on do counterintelligence investigation from July today, and they don't understand still to this day. What legitimately started it. And why he wasn't informed of it. The other side does not even have interest in it. So when he said spying, they said, are you kidding me about Chuck Todd talked about gas lighting, America? But by talking about spot, I agree with you. I think that you have to have an oath. You have to have an open mind about this stuff. And I think you know, when I criticize people on both sides, you have to have an open mind did the president did the people around him do anything wrong, and you also have to and just because you may think you know, two things can be true that people around the president did something wrong. But the FBI also, you know, went over the line in some of the actions, they took so you have to have an open mind, and you have to be willing to accept at least evidence. Listen to evidence on both sides, Julian Assange, arrested hold out of the Ecuador embassy in Britain. It looks like we have charges on them. We want him extradited. They have problems because he violated a bail deal where do you think this story's going, and in your mind, Chris from what you know is he a hero or villain? I I I don't have an open mind on he's a villain. Thanks. I'm concerned that I know at lot. Thank you. I agree. But honestly, a lot of people. In the conservative world think he's a hero. I don't get it. This is a guy who published I think one hundred thousand pages is something of Chelsea Manning's. Documents some of which endangered national security. You see he was a he was a an accomplice to the Kremlin in some of the information that you can sit there and say, well, I'm glad that the pedestrian formation came out it came out because the the the Kremlin or the Russian intelligence hack did. And I I don't see how this guy is a hero. And as far as I'm concerned, he can spend a lot of time in prison in the United States and Pam, and I will say what is this? Superficial of me when I saw him being dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy, and he did not look happy about that. I thought you know with kind of bald head and the David Letterman beard, I thought. Wow, Pam Anderson was attracted to that right now. That's very real of you that is that something that's not going to be in the teleprompter on Sunday. I'm sure, but it's good of you to give his share with us. I want you to another which I said something stupid, and you couldn't be happier. No. It's a conversation. Hey, eric. Where's that cut of Jay Johnson this morning foam homeland security secretary, President Obama when he talked about Assange can we hear that apparently aided and assisted in the leak of classified information. Now at some point there may be debate about whether he is legitimate journalist, and that was legitimate journalistic activity, but I do not regard him as a hero. So either do I, but this is the thing if you some of our colleagues do, but but here's use equate. Here's a journalist question. If you get this information that reveals America tactic Saudi Arabia's relationship with Iran, how we might have been working with Saudi Arabia against on all these things as a journalist. Chris wallace. Do you publish that information? Do you care whether a jeopardize national security if you have a big story there. Well, of course, you do. I mean, look there's been. Well, I I mean, I think of course, a responsible journalist does that doesn't mean, you don't publish anything. I mean, and in fairness people who've gotten lakes like that, whether it was Fox News, whether it was the New York Times, whether it was the Washington Post, you usually go to the authorities, and you say, I've got some information and explain to me why you think I shouldn't publish it. And then you end up making the decision, you know, obviously when you it's not you personally, it's your entire organization. The editors the lawyers whatever, but I think it was pretty clear in the case of Julian Assange one he didn't want to listen, or even, you know, take consul from authorities until he didn't care that it might have.

I want a good exam nother new years down the drain what I'm talking about. Which is Frank Bruno had crazy muscular physique, like we've we've talked about the Mike weavers of the world guys that just had these crazy. Ken Norton had crazy physique. But Frank Bruno quietly may have had the craziest of all the physique of crazy muscles. Just and again, the beauty of boxing is most of the time. The guys are little smoother in the physique one not the guys with the big biceps and lattes, and I don't know why. But the smoother guys traditionally seem to do the guys who built like Muhammad Ali would beat Mike Weaver and Ken Norton. They beat those guys for you'd never think about your making a movie wouldn't cast it that way. But Frank Bruno was a big, dude. He was he was you know, is interesting because I was watching him fight. At one time. And I'm like, yeah. This guy's fighting guys that are easy and he's look slow too. But what I found is different kettle of fish. When you go in there. You know, it it's like going there. You think it's going to be easy? He he actually got me upset in the fight because he hit me, and I didn't like it. So I reacted with a left hook. And at that time is when I when I gave him the fifteen punches out of that reaction of him hitting me and me in back. So so Frank was big in the UK. Yes. You said I'm going to leave Canada after the Olympics, and I'm going to the UK and start my career there. Yes. Well, what how old were you when you were near when you win the title about. Twenty seven and when was the Bruno fight how far into it where you then. Embarks? Can't remember?

"Powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in. One hundred twenty countries, I'm Susanna Palmer. This is Bloomberg. This is the business of sports from Bloomberg radio with scouts Michael Barr. Evan Novi William. Thank you very much for joining us. We hear each and every week were you at the same time talking to the biggest names in sports. And today, we're speaking with Frank photo partner at sixteen w marketing, he's a leader in the sports marketing industry, having consulted for more than half of the teams in the NFL and negotiated record-breaking partnerships in sponsorship licensing and merchandising Frank. Let's talk about one of these upstart professional sports leagues, the XFL relaunching. They're playing in the spring. So they're not competing with the NFL, but they are playing in NFL cities New York, Tampa, Houston, L, A, etc. Is that the right approach? I actually had a conversation with offer luck about that. At the national football foundation, college football, same dinner, and he said Frank, you know, I asked him about it. And he said, you know, we think our fans are going to be the die hard football fans. And where else would you find die hard football fans? But in the cities where NFL was played. I think that's questionable. But we'll see how they are going to play in the spring, which is great. I think there's still a desire for football, particularly in the month of February after Super Bowl ends. But I think the F going into markets that are, you know, great cities and good football cities. But not NFL cities is a smart move. And I wanna talk about something about the emotion of a product that you were with you assisted the New Orleans Saints post, Hurricane Katrina, and you hope secure millions of dollars in revenue during that time and the future of the team was in doubt of being in Louisiana, not because the city didn't love him. But because of all of the horrific stuff that was going down there. Can you take us through that time? What that was like. Yeah. You know, I'm getting choked up again goosebumps just says you're talking about. Not that I have tremendous emotions about that whole entire experience. It's one of the reasons, frankly, I really believe firmly that Paul Tagliabue's should be pro football hall of fame. But that's another subject Paul was instrumental in in in making should happen for the saints in for the dome. You know, I was on the first plane down with Roger Goodell who was sued Commissioner at the time, Paul Tagliabue, and gene Upshaw. Mr. Benson was gonna move the team to San Antonio because up to that time. It didn't have a hell of a lot of corporate support the city of New Orleans all of its key business people. And so on just said if the Superdome goes dark and the saints move away, our city could actually die or city could really go away. Because it'll send a message to the world that our our city is dark, and our city has has died, and what went on inside that stadium which was horrific. It was horrific the police actually left because they feared for their own lives. So what went on? There was just horrible. But I'm Paul stood on the floor of the stadium and said the dog Thornton. Can we need to have this open for next season December and he wanted to make sure he wanted to get an open by September. And doug. Just not possible we have holes in the roof. The place was just the all the the floor was ripped up. The place was destroyed and Paul said, well, what if what if I go to all the NFL owners, and I get them to kick in. So we can get this Sparta, and Dr well that would help a lot so Paulin all the owners had them contribute a million dollars each to get the renovation started. And then we worked with FEMA relentlessly after that, and ultimately spent one hundred eighty million dollars to renovate the place, and when we reopened we couldn't get it. Open for the first game this season. It was a little story that just shows you some sometimes scratch your head. I was working with the NFL folks who are in charge of network broadcasts. And I said, you know, we gotta get their first game on television on Monday night. And they were like, well, they're not so good. I was like, are you kidding me? Wait a minute. Wait a minute. You telling me the TV people at the NFL didn't understand the compelling narrative of getting the saints game on TV still work there. No, okay. Good. That's what that's what I'm telling you. So little known secrets, but I want I won't name names with your probably look up the dates anyway. But we got Monday night, and you know, well up with New Orleans performers in. You too in just the whole thing and the return when we were outside that stadium. People started gathering on the concourse four or five hours before the gates open just in tears, just so excited, and you know, one of the most emotional times in my professional career. I was there with all the folks outside and it was just tugging celebration. Just one of the greatest days in my in my career. So we there Miami when they won the Super Bowl. I was absolutely absolutely. No. I'm a big New York Giants fan, but I've got a place in my heart for the saints forever up next our conversation with sixteen w marketing partner Frank Bruno turns to.

"Sixteen w marketing on the business of professional football. There are many reasons why they could be much much bigger. The fact that live sports still hold such a place in all of our hearts the big deal. Stay tuned for more of our interview with sixteen w marketing partner Frank Bruno. But first, let's look at the top stories of the week before we do that. I got one. Policing. We talked about it. Yes. We know the money doesn't go to go. Did anybody say anything that would have led the listeners to believe that we thought the money went to politic? I had mentioned that Seventy-three million dollars was like a NBA journeyman salary, which may have led to the confusion. Yes, that's a transfer fee. Transfer fee. Even it doesn't go to him. It's just that number will be attached to the therefore the pressure is on him to live up to the amount. They pay for him. We just wanted to clarify. Well, let's start first of all the NFL and attendance the ratings are high. But attendance at the games abrupt why? Well, first of all there's a lot of caveats on this one. And there was a team that was Mexico City game didn't get played. So they went to LA last minute someone to London, but on the whole it's down that a bit concerning if you're an NFL owner, but the huge money from pro football comes from media, and you can scale media seats in a stadium are finite number. Let's remember a majority of people in this country. Do not live near a stadium, and we'll never go. Its how do you scale your product and sell highlights, how can you slice and dice and make money from the media is how you scale. So do you want your buildings filled? Of course, you do. But I'm not pushing any panic buttons. Because there's a little slip in turnstile numbers have you'd given. Roger Goodell the option before the season. Hey, we're gonna make your TV ratings on five percent. There's going to be a different attendance. Where do I sign? Yes. Yes. Yes. Looking at the numbers here. It's amazing. And and this is true every year, but Dallas so far ahead of everybody else. Dallas average almost ninety two thousand people per game the next closest the jets at seventy seven thousand imagine if the judge. That is why you know, the Cowboys are are the a one leader head and shoulders above everybody else in local revenue. Our next story from the dynamic duo right here NFL signed Caesar's as a casino partner looks like reaching toward betting view. Yeah. The NFL didn't go as far as as we've seen with baseball hockey, and the NBA this is a casino only deal. So so Caesar's is not allowed to advertise it sportsbook in conjunction with the NFL marks. However, you know after decades or years decades of objecting to the possibility of legalized sports betting objecting to gaming as a whole the NFL is jumping in with the casino partner. According to our sources almost thirty million dollars a year. So even without the sports betting, the NBA got more data more than the NBA deal with MGM, which wasn't exclusive in this is. So, you know, there are some differences there. But you know, this sets the NFL up in the future. If it wants to either from a data perspective. Or from a Justice sports betting marketing perspective for a much bigger contract in the future is going to be knocking on the door at MGM. I might give Caesar's and I don't get this contract with the NFL. I am one upset puppet. Yeah. It's worth mentioning Caesar's a partner in the Las Vegas stadium where the raiders will play. They're already working with. I think eight teams already. It's clear that Caesar's is doing whatever it can to keep its relationship with the NFL are going to get his room. More than necessarily. Moving right along with from the NFL going to college football, which kinda plays into the first. Or we talked about about attendance tickets for Monday nights, college football playoff title game between Alabama and Clemson have never been cheaper. So your Alabama, obviously, east coast, Clemson, South Carolina, east coast, and we're playing this game in Santa Clara home of the forty Niners. That's not a one hour trip. And sorry, Clemson. But most fans would probably say what's the line? Evan six and a half six most people probably the Alabama faded complete. I mean, some sports books even paid out Alabama as champions already. I can see why they're not. They're not filling the stadium and the prices have to come down. Yeah. This seems like a mix of a lot of factors this guy. You just mentioned that these two teams are both twenty seven hundred miles away Levi's stadium in Santa Clara. The of that area is not a hotbed for college football as it is. Is you know, you can question whether this game should be played on a Monday night or maybe a weekend. But as we talked about with the NFL same kind of thing, this is a TV property, I and in-person property second. And if the ratings are good, and I imagine they would be they got to slam dunk. Best teams in college football this year. That's all they really care about searches next year. Finally, we have to say goodbye to wrestling legend. Madison.

But because of all of the horrific stuff that was going down there. Can you take us through that time? What that was like. Yeah. You know, I'm getting choked up again goosebumps just says you're talking about that. I have tremendous emotions about that whole entire experience. It's one of the reasons, frankly, I really believe firmly that Paul Tagliabue. Be in the pro football hall of fame. But that's another subject Paul was instrumental in in in making it happened for the saints and for the dome, you know, I was on the first plane down with Roger Goodell who was satanic Commissioner at the time, Paul Tagliabue. And gene Upshaw Mr. Benson was gonna move the team to San Antonio because open to that time. You didn't have a hell of a lot of corporate support the city of New Orleans all of its key business people. And so on just said if the Superdome goes dark and the saints move away. Our city could actually die or city could really go away. Because it'll send a message to the world that our our city is dark, and our city has has died, and what went on inside that stadium which was horrific. It was horrific the police actually left because they feared for their own lives. So what went on? There was just horrible. But Paul stood on the floor of the stadium and said the Doug Thornton, you know. Can we need to have this open for next season December and he wanted to make sure he wanted to get it open by September. And Doug just said that's just not possible. We had holes in the roofs. The place was just there all the floor was ripped up. The place was destroyed and. Paul said, well, what if what if I go to all the NFL owners, and I get them to kick in. So we can get this started and Doug so well that would help a lot. So Paul went all the owners had them contribute a million dollars each to give the renovation started. And then we worked with FEMA relentlessly after that, and ultimately spent one hundred eighty million dollars to renovate the place when we reopened. We couldn't get it. Open to the first game this season. It was a little story that just shows you some sometimes scratch your head. I was working with the NFL folks who are in charge of the network broadcasts. And I said, you know, we gotta get their first game on television on Monday night. And they were like, well, you know, it's the same thing. They're not so good. I was like, are you kidding me? Wait a minute. Wait a minute. You telling me the TV people at the NFL didn't understand the compelling narrative of getting the saints game on TV. That's sad. No, okay. Good. That's what that's what I'm telling you. So little known secret name names with you probably look up to date anyway, but we got Monday night, and you know, well end up with New Orleans performers. You too. And I'm just the whole thing. And the return when we were outside that stadium. People started gathering on the concourse for five hours before the gates open just in tears and just so excited, and you know, one of the most emotional times in my professional career. I was there with all the folks outside it was just tugging and celebration. I just wanted to greatest days in my in my career so Miami when they won the Super Bowl. I was absolutely absolutely. No. I'm a big New York Giants fan, but I've got a place in my heart for the saints forever up next. Our conversation with sixteen w marketing partner, Frank Bruno turns.

"This is the business of sports from Bloomberg radio with Scott Sasha, Michael Barr, and Evan Novi William. Thank you very much for joining us. We're here each and every week were you at the same time talking to the biggest names in sports. And today, we're speaking with Frank Fono partner at sixteen w marketing, he's a leader in the sports marketing industry, having consulted for more than half of the teams in the NFL and negotiated record-breaking partnerships in sponsorship licensing and merchandising Frank. Let's talk about one of these upstart professional sports leagues, the XFL relaunching. They're playing in the spring. So they're not competing with the NFL. But they are playing an NFL cities New York, Tampa, Houston, L, A et cetera. Is that the right approach? I actually had a conversation with Oliver luck about that. At the national football foundation, college football, hall of fame dinner. And he said Frank I asked him about it. And he said, you know, we think our fans are going to be the die hard football fans. And where else would you find die hard football fans? But in the cities where fellas played. I think that's questionable. But we'll see how they are going to play in the spring, which is great. I think there's still a desire for football, particularly at a month of February after Super Bowl ends. But I think the going into markets that are, you know, great cities and good football cities. But not NFL cities is a smart move. And I wanna talk about something about the emotion of a product that you were with you assisted the New Orleans Saints post, Hurricane Katrina, and you help secure millions of dollars in revenue during that time and the future of the team was in doubt of being in Louisiana, not because the city didn't love him.

"You gotta keep coming back to that. It's a big part of his life. I don't let them live it down. Well, I do think I do think there'll be a developmentally for the NFL. If one of these new leagues doesn't happen to turn into that. I think eventually the NFL will develop their own developmentally actually gonna ask what when you look at it seems like certainly this year and in the past couple of years, there's been this huge push for for a number of different types of investors and entertainment properties to try to create an another professional football league in the US from a marketing standpoint, kind of where do you view those and their potential likelihood for success? Well, we know many people have tried and failed. But I think they all made some critical mistakes, and they tried to take on the NFL. You know, it's really funny. I was part of the US L being launched by Bill Hambrecht back seven eight years ago, and initially I still believe that to this day. I initially I think there is room for another professional football league. But not to go up against the NFL in the fall really to be to be developed as a feeder to the NFL and to be played in the spring and to be played in markets where the NFL isn't. And I think there's tremendous potential because we know that there's an incredible talent level out. There. There's thousands and thousands of really qualified college athletes coming out who could play ball at a very high level who for one reason or another just don't get the chance, and I can get into that in many different respects in terms of. If you look at the first round draft picks that people have failed on and then you look at the Tom Brady's draft sixth round. You know, a kid playing for the Washington Redskins quarterback these last few games who is actually on the roster. One of the new league's rosters in the spring. And he know he did pretty damn well, stay tuned for more of our conversation with sixteen w marketing partner Frank Bruno,.
