He decided to go for 1/4 and one and the Ravens did not allow them to even get that yard, so they're going to take over at the cancer.

They decided not going to sign him. They need some serious, serious help back there. I notice all your soul mentality. But if you're a team like the Dallas Cowboys, you may not have any choice to bring that guy in or think about bringing him in When people say that maybe that's not a good idea you run out of Seattle. You run out of Baltimore. The Texans have injury issues of safety. They decided not to Burt's assign him also. They have a massive need back there. Cowboys who just ate a steak.

Seattle, Baltimore Now, Houston all saying, Get out or No, Thank you. The common denominator is the player Earl Thomas. Ah, I think that's too toxic even for Dallas right now to bring him in. No matter how desperate Jerry Jones has been in the past, But Jerry I don't think is calling the shots as much now publicly, he'll look, he'll be out front, but I think it's more Wilma Clay and Steven Jones. That scouting department than it is Jerry making that call and he can overrule everybody inside. Help whether we're bringing him in right, but recently hasn't been doing that, okay. A guy. That girl Thomas can be very seductive until you actually bring him into your building because people always give you clues what you can expect.

I saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers team their first season where that organization lost their 1st 26 games. There have been no dumber teams than those two teams in the modern era of the National Football League, asked any Jets van about one in 15 1996. The Falcons with dumb for one play.

Boston - Bill Belichick's first practice impression of Cam Newton: 'He's a hard-working kid'
"Howard things in Foxboro know Tom Brady anymore for Bill Belichick, but he does have Cam Newton Maze All Walker's a lot. Information's been transferred to all the players. And he's worked very hard to say it's all our players have. We have, you know, hard working group not said certainly for all the quarterbacks at that position. Those guys have been locked in that focused work extremely hard. All four of them cans hardworking kid He really is in Fitz Simmons. Freddie Coleman, take a look at that relationship for coach Bell, checking his New quarterback Cam Newton camp is all about showing people that his time in the sun is still going to be there, not just being a quarterback in the NFL but a successful quarterback in the NFL, and if he's able to do that would build Bella check. Bill better does not need to send that guy a message saying you have to compete because I get the sense that this is exactly what Campbell wants to show people that he can't compete. He will compete and win this job. I think it's more than likely. That he's going to be the starting quarterback. But that Jared Stanton guy is not just going to give it to him. And I'm sure that a guy like Cam new knowing that this is potentially his last shot to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. He better realize that and if he does, that's not only going to be good for him. It is going to be really good for his dad calling camp doing the kid Bill Bill, check the coach of the Patriots. You tell me right now where Bill Belichick is a Sfar starting quarterback goes He's not bringing up everybody else's name, you know, especially stadium. Every time he posed the question about Cam Newton. It's for a purpose. Sending a message to camp. Save your job. You have to earn it. And right now, if you asked me that 60 40 cam is a
Toronto Blue Jays to play majority of 2020 home games in New York
"Last night at the Ronald Bluejays, where a major league baseball team without a home in terms of playing home games at a stadium on Friday, they found out they're going to play majority. The home games of Bubble New York, home of the team's Triple A affiliate, the Buffalo Bison's Anthony's Breakers, the GM the Buffalo Bison's can't wait to hear his take on this, as he joins Thank to show a pencil performance line. Anthony plane, but we believe that it's a Ronald Blue Jays would not become wards of Major League baseball when it comes out having any home games. But for those who don't know about your stadium where they're going to play What can this state and really do, even though it's a minor league field, but a major league team's about to play on it. Well, guys, thanks for having me on and it's Ah, it's a thrilled to be hosting the Blue Jays. That's assailant field, and you know everybody in Buffalo kind of nose and in the minor league baseball circuit that Our ballpark in is the biggest and minor league baseball seating capacity wise. Back 1988. It was built to become a major league ballpark and You know, thanks to a kind of that ability, you know, we we've got the space and the infrastructure to do the best we can, and probably best that any minor league team to be ready for a major team coming in to take care of them. What kind of changes to the specs of that yard have to be made, if any, to be able to host a major league baseball game. Yeah. I mean, there's there's certainly Ah, few things overcome here in a short period of time, But you know, we're confident we can do it. But you know, some of the things lighting has been has been talked about. As ah, major obstacle, but we feel we're going to be able to do that with some plans. We're gonna have some portable lights brought in and ever bulbs changed out. As well to sew. The TV games will be have no problem saying in the game and you know, a little bit of the clubhouse is well, it's you've seen, you know, with the social distancing Fenway model. Everybody's kind of calling it. And having teams in the suites were considering that looking at all the different avenues in the ballpark where weaken socially distance players and him a good home. Keep him safe, but also give him a nice place. To be inside of ballpark alone will be certainly a little unique. But you know, it's a majorly style ballpark. It's our facilities. Fantastic, the actual game on the field. I won't miss a beat will be ready. Anthony spread that you know, the Buffalo Bison's Their home field is going to be the home for the Toronto Bluejays in Major league baseball. This 2020 joining Freddie Coleman and if it's Simmons on Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN radio. I'm glad you mentioned exactly that. It's a pretty neat thing to have this. I know fans won't be able to be allowed into the stadium. But what does this really mean? For the city of Buffalo having it's around a Blue Jays, calling that city their home for 2020 I mean, it's it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. I think for all of us so we can come forward on this and host Ah Major league team here. I mean, we're the support we're getting from our local politicians. Byron Brown has been fantastic. Governor Cuomo has been a huge help in this old saying, Mark pulling cars are your county executive has Has really helped us. They've come and said Look any help you guys need We're here. We're helpful. Every one of our partners through this Even before we knew that they were coming. Everyone is excited about this. How can we help you help? What can we dio? You know, Buffalo, the city of good neighbors, and it is truly going toe. We're gonna show that everybody everyone's gonna pitch in. Everyone's going to do their part, and you know whenever that time comes, I know it's a little up in the air, exactly the first game that's going to be here. We're going to be ready and it's going to be really put Buffalo on the national map on the international map, too, because you know the J's are Canadians, the country's team. And I think everybody not just in buffalo, but in New York state is goingto see what What? Buffalo Khun D'oh. Anthony, What has this been like for you personally, You haven't been the GM there very long. You've been in the organisation for. I think close to two decades if I'm not mistaken, but you haven't been a GM very long. What is this? Hold? This is the last 4.5 months been like for you personally. You know, you have been with the bisons for a long time. Um, but yeah, only was ah named G. M a few days before everything shut down. Due to the pandemic, so I probably you know, in a few years, I'll realize how crazy this was. But it's just been one crazy step after another that every change everyday every week has felt like a year in a time capsule pretty much that I can't even really read my head around. What's what's been going on. And, um, you know, I've had so many different moving targets from you know, the starting our season to the PBA agreement was Major League baseball, Tio. Mark seasons canceled and the Jays they're gonna come. They're not going to come. They're going to play in Toronto. There, not going. I mean, they had so many twists and turns that it's hard to keep track of, Um And I probably don't realize how crazy it really has been until I go through a normal season GM but it has been AH, It's really been a whirlwind of emotions. And you know, I'm kind of left now with just Ah, whole lot of excitement that that we're going to get those that Toronto bluejays. Anthony sprayed the June that Buffalo Bison's
OBJ: 'The blond is back' and new attitude, too
"Newton Noto Beckham Jr had their own red table talk early on Tuesday. No Jada Pinkett Noble Smith. But that doesn't mean that both of these two were not going to say something that got people's attention. They both used the word humble but coining the context of tired of being humble. Cam Newton said that about replacing Tom Brady, the elephant in the room with the doing the Patriots and Noto Beckham Jr soak office hat and said the blonde is back and said he is tired of being humble. He is tired of playing that game. I don't know if we're going to Jada Pinkett joining them at any time soon, But Cam knew no Dahlbeck. Um do you have there red table talk, and it got plenty of attention, Especially way they use the word humble and the way they wanted to use it being tied of being that way to satisfy others. When it comes to playing football. I don't know if you can hear my eyes rolling in the back of my head right now, But when I saw that first I'm not going to be nice anymore. I saw that I thought was that broke version of LeBron's thing with a shop like that's what I saw, if if anybody wants to do Parody of this, with Victor Cruz leading the conversation, and you've got Odell Beckham looking smug, and it's weird jacket he's wearing Todd Gurley looking like he doesn't know what's going on one side of the table in Cannes, sitting with a cigar in these in these glasses of wine all over the table in the decanter, I mean, It was well done. I'll give him that Odo back him and his production company put this thing together. It was very well. I will say it was great to hear them. Talk about black lives matter Movement and what Corona virus That's very honest things to say about Corona virus and kind of the fear that a lot of people have of playing the season. The athletes at the center of this They are the product. They're the ones who make owners millions and billions of dollars every year yet I think that we missed the mark. Sometimes these were not necessarily considering all the health and safety protocols. Ah, when it comes to them, But so that's the stuff that I actually could get down with. But when the word humble was thrown around, I felt like you know, I needed Kendrick Lamar to come in and just kind of like, walk that back a little bit, because when you talk about the blonde is back and this that and the other thing with Odell Beckham have we not been hearing some version of the same thing for the last 3 to 4 years, Freddie Even before he went to Cleveland. I mean, it's every single season is new Year new Me New Year new Me But silence the haters. Got a You know, everybody wants to be labeled. We want to label something in society because we don't know what it is. And I'm tired of being labeled. Oh, my goodness. I'm tired of hearing this is every single year Put up or shut up, bro. I can't handle it anymore. By the corner. Cronin, Finn Fitzsimmons of Freddie Coleman on Friday and Fitzsimmons and ESPN radio. I said it's for the longest time and every time he does or says something like this without a Beckham Jr It further further confirms my suspicions. He still wants to be in New York. He doesn't want to be in Cleveland. Yeah, he'll say all the right things about the organization. But if he had his way, he still be a New York giant playing in the biggest city in the world when it comes to New York because his personality fits more in New York than it does in Cleveland. He doesn't realize that if he just goes out there because to me, he has way too much talent. So have that kind of mouth promising and making those false promises would come without backup Jr. I'm with you. I don't want to hear about humility I don't want to hear about the blind is back in. All of the nonsense stopped talking about it Be about it because you had that kind of ability and talent. But I still wonder I don't want any more. He confirms it every time Courtney Every time he opens his mouth. It tells me each and every time That he still wants to be in the biggest city in the world. Whether the New York Giants or in New York jet, Cleveland does not fit the personality to me in the mind of Odo Beckham Jr so and you're putting that out there. To me. It seems like he's laying the groundwork that if eyeball out in Cleveland, I want to go somewhere else where I believe my personality is going to fit that city and clear as a great sports city. Put it back on. Gina's realized that if he bawls out in Cleveland and leads into the playoffs and end of a deep run in the play offs, he could go anywhere representing him in a Cleveland Browns, but because he doesn't leave his personality Is suited for Cleveland. He keeps putting stuff out there time and time again to let everybody know I'm a celebrity, and I'm too much of a celebrity for the city that I'm playing it now because I did not want to be traded away from the city where I started my NFL career in the first place, and it's like we've seen the story play out. I said again and again, I mean, think about some of the distractions and think about what happened this offseason with him handing out cash Tol issue players of the national championship and You know, slapping the police officer on the Mac side in Superdome, and you know all of these things. It's like he was quiet for a little bit. And there were some trade rumors before that. I mean, like it or not, there was talks behind the scenes about him trying to get out of Cleveland. I have Pete. You know, sources that I've spoken with people close the situation. I know that it's been debunked allegedly at this point, but at one point that was actually in the works being talked about. It didn't just come out of thin air, so I mean I understand where he's at right now in wanting to wipe the sleep this late, clean because, you know, by his standards, you know he didn't you know, he still was 1000 yard receiving season last year, but he wasn't where he wanted to be. I think that he had different expectations for what his first year Cleveland could have looked like. But you know, the blonde is back. Does that mean that the celebrity and all of the distractions come with it to be as you'll remember? You know that last season in New York in 2018 there were a lot of distractions. There was an interview with Little Wayne where he was talking about his quarterback and essentially throwing him under the bus that created a lot of distractions in the locker room. So I mean, is that coming with it? If you're talking about the blonde is back, because, sadly, we know that this is one of the most talented wide receivers to ever play the game. But beyond that, you know, the blonde has kind of been the demise for him.

Being influenced by people and not have that line of thinking of influence thought process. If you're going to be the first year, you find it what I is, and you stay through that you stay. Stay on that that soapbox standpoint, if you try to be the second somebody else, then, people can be able to see through that and they're gonNA.

We want you to be authentic you, you just go, be authentic, and you're someone really I mean from the first time I heard you. But it's getting a little trickier these days to be yourself because there. There's so many critics out there there. There's so much toxicity on social media I mean. Do you pay attention to what people say about you not at all? Here's why Paul because if you weren't. If you want doing really well in your profession, paying attention to you, people don't criticize nobody's. I've yet to see. See that whether it's been social media or even long before social media came along. If somebody's doing a saying something, that's having an impact then you're going to get that kind of reaction.

You have the Ivy League announcing mere minutes ago that they're not gonNA. Have a fall football season that not only affects their conference, but also Patriot League schools that are going to play against them. Northeast Conference schools that play against Ivy League opponents so I. Don't think anybody knows exactly where we are. We know where we want to be. Because we know how important college football and really football is going to be for I'll fall, but there's. There's going to have to be an adjustment period because there's going to be a different kind of season. That's going to happen. Cursory, said on our show about three months ago and people took him to task saying how can you say that? There may not be college football in the fall well now that steering us in the face because we're getting closer to the middle of July and the next thing you know Paul also off is going to roll around what we're in the same boat then that we are. are in now than what kind of decisions are going to have to be made in terms of maybe moving college football further into October only having a conference only season, maybe two college football season next year when it comes to spring and the fall right now we don't have any answers because the question is still out there that don't have answers to them. In terms of concrete answer, exactly what kind of fall we're going to have when it comes to college football and what kind of football football that we're going? Going to see especially in this country in front of you, said something really interesting it was. It wasn't march when when we're. Kirk, said what he did to you and I was being interviewed by a reporter day, and he he actually drew a line to that moment as what changed everything. Nobody wanted to say anything negative after that so everybody just say yeah, we're going to have a season. I don't care how we do it. Because herbstreet I'm still not sure he's come up for air, he. WELL HE I don't know if he's coming for hair, but at the same time he back away from that because I'm so very very easy to say that that was taken out of context Paul. He didn't do that at all. He said you know this is what I believe in. Here's why he had so many different example the why he believed that we really be careful in terms with covert nineteen, and how this really affect the fact that we may not have college football in the fall, so many people want to speak into exist and believe me. You and I know exactly where those people are coming from because we WANNA. We WanNA, make sure that this spoken into existence when it comes to football, but we can't ignore the fact that Em- plenty of states that have football that believe in football whether it's Florida or Texas or Georgia South Carolina Kobe nineteen, von Corona vars case are increasing each and every day, and so now we're going to ask our young men, and really in any other sports, all young women to go out there and be on the front lines and risk their health for.

We're starting to see signs of Man. We're GONNA have a different kind of season, or we may have to face the fact that may not be fall fall football, no matter where it is in college football, no matter what division. It's going to be when that standpoint. Be careful front of you're speaking truth here today. I tell my wife all the time Paul. The truth is never terrible. No matter how you deliver it and believe me kirks Kirsty say. Completely completely wrong. He didn't say that I'm hoping to be right.

I don't know where the time goes but We so great to have you back on the program. Good afternoon. Paul. It's funny. You mentioned that because I was talking about that with my wife Denise today and I said goodness, and I've known each other for more than a minute, and it seems like just yesterday when you had a chance to have their first official meeting and we talked like we have been friends for years, so it's always good to catch up with you. My man well. I feel like I. Don't I'm out of there we're just bumping into different hours, but so great to have you in and I I want to ask you if somebody who's done radio ESPN and a lot of places for a long time where we are now four months into this. utterly bizarre period in our lives What's it been like for? You? especially on the air well. Personally I think it's a great description. You use utterly bizarre because that's not just a sports, radio or sports thing, but definitely in everyday life sort of thing where so many things have been turned topsy turvy, because of corona vice pandemic, but the one thing we always talked about without show. Is that even though live sports aren't going on? That does not mean that sports stores now going to be out there that we can't sink our teeth into, so we've been. been able to do that and try to not try to provide live entertainment, of course, also maybe not having a sport aspect to everything, but at least we're giving people something to hold out hope that when buys sports comeback. It won't retard our progress regarding sports or keep us further back than we already are, but it has definitely been utterly bazaar time. There's no doubt about that, but if anything, the creative juices have been able to come out even further and further because you have to be more than ever before with these things that are going on right now. In. Friday, we we we, we're. We're two three months into the the pandemic, and then another little literally mind boggling story occurs with. George Floyd at You know by itself it. It's one of the you know the most epic stories of our times but it, but it also moves into the sports world with so much reaction I'm really interested in in the approach to that, and and and what you've seen and heard. And how do you feel about it? Well? One of the things we talked about that we have to say. The days of sticking. The sports are probably over because so many athletes, and even so many coaches of school administrators. They were not just stay silent on the sidelines and believe me. I completely understand how some people are going to be out there to say you know. Why can't we just leave one over there and Lee? Sports over here or an athletes are having their voice. Voice and not just restricting their voices, restricting their emotions about what's going on in society, whatever issues are out there? You can't just turn a blind eye to that now you have to find balance. Of course you have to find the right way to approach it and certain things that you can't go near because they're going to go beyond the Pale, you have to stay away. Away from, but when you have primetime athletes, no matter what sport they play, no matter what discipline part of Paul speaking out on these things you have the Mike Gundy into the help with the Oklahoma state head coach, or drew brees, saints quarterback. You can't just turn a blind eye to those things because plenty of people talking about those situations that are happening involving other college. College Athletes College coaches, pro athletes and coaches, so finding that balance has been really really hard, because there's a certain line that you can get to, but you better not cross that line, because then you take it to a different level once you're able to stay there and give people your most. How you feel about things they can talk about sports and issues and sports. Continue to blur those lives more than ever before. Talking to Freddie Coleman and and Freddie you. You've been in this industry at a really high level for a considerably long period of time, and there's a lot of conversation going on today. I think because of the. Earlier in the day from we're, we're we're you sit on ESPN radio and I am wondering because it. Longevity in any industry is extremely difficult, especially now What do you think? For especially young people listening who who want to get into this business, what do you think are some of the keys and important things about staying in a job As long as you have well, you're somebody that I will use an example because I. Tell people all the time Paul. Finebaum was the first Paul Finebaum. He wasn't trying to be the second Howard cosell he wasn't trying to. To be the second Verne Lundquist he was going to be the first tem, and that's what I always tell. Young people all the time I wanNA break into our business. Whoever you are whatever you're going to be, then you be that first person you'd be that, I someone from that standpoint. It's very easy to be influenced by the Steven Naismith of the world and the Paul Finebaum. Cal Calva. Calva or going back to our time, the Chris singles and the curb galleries, and the keep Jackson's, but they were the first themselves. They want to be like somebody else. And I think that's a key to any kind of longevity. Yeah, you have to have the talent and the know how and also people want to listen to your content. There's no doubt about it, but anytime somebody tunes into. Into loosening eupol their Guinea Paul finebaum anytime. Somebody listen to listen to me..

"Mobile smartphone system April is no contact. And You know it's the end of an era at least for me, when I was a kid. I was fortunate enough to go to a lot of Alabama game. father got season tickets got a lot of paper tickets and I held onto those their keepsakes loved them. And as I got older, especially when I got into college and a little bit after college. If, the ticket was out of my price range I found it. A convenient to use those old paper tickets and go to the upper deck gates, and usually at twenty dollars handshake would give me in the upper deck. And so that's the end of an era for me. I that's not available anymore so I feel safe till this story because That's not going to be able anymore so that is you ever realize that's amazing? That's really you, know I I. I like you I. Still have tickets from countless games concerts I. mean those are such a big part of just throwing on the desk and five years later you know, have your wife say? Is there some reason why you're saving that ticket? Off Yes. Exactly and I got the idea from my father who grew up in Birmingham, and with the Legion Phil Gang, kid and he said you know sometimes they weren't able to get into a game. They would do that so I tested my luck and I never got turned away. Even the another caller mentioned the game of the Century for eleven I got ten people into that game using that little trick I even my father used a Alabama baseball tickets to get into that game. You know, attend our handshakes. I will miss those days, but you know we gotta do? We gotta move forward with football of this there. Hey. Thank you for sharing that. Great Story. Really did appreciate. We're up against a break. Freddie Coleman from a ESPN will join US next, and we'll continue having the conversation with.

"Football leaves here the. Paul Finebaum show our three podcast. Walked me back second. Half the program is live and underway. It's been pretty pretty busy so far by the way there is a pretty big news out today WELP repenting on. Your view of things, but the Ivy League. Has. Put off all fall sports activity that includes. Not only football but I'm sure crew and. Whatever else they do, at Harvard Yale Princeton they did not say today they will definitely play in the spring, but they did indicate that they will revisit the issue at some point down the road. I'm sure as the. The semester comes to an end about by putting off all sports. I guess I. Would I guess that would include basketball until the end of the year there are there are basketball games and I think in fact. Alabama was playing Yale. Sometime in the early part of the year so That is a big story. What does it mean? That's a question that people are not sure about It's going to send out a signal that the IVY. League is far more concerned about safety. and wallet is not does not directly correlate to. The others What are the optics going to look like for the rest of? intercollegiate athletics we'll continue with that with guests and more of your phone calls at eight, five, five, two, four two. Seven. Two eight five. Let's check in with Paul next. Hey Paul great to have you on. Hey Bob. How're you doing? We're well, thank you. And I was just GonNa. Ask You What are you GonNa your opinion on? I guess the lack of response from a everybody onto Sean Jackson's comments. I don't know if you're familiar with that is A. INSTAGRAM Post. You did the other day. Some really antisemitic material that he posted and At the very end of it i. mean it even said Hitler was right and I was just wanted to get your opinion, and I must say it's been covered not much ear, but I know it's been covered. on the morning shows I've seen a lottery I have not. I have not I mean I'm just kind of weird to say I. Haven't paid much attention because I. really don't care what he thinks about anything But and I, don't mean that because I, I don't I? Don't really I mean he's just another athlete. like a million other athletes who have who have opinions and it's obviously a fairly uneducated. When I did read today where he met with the owner of the team and he has apologized like everyone does when they say in post. Silly things I know a lot of people are upset about it though. Yeah I mean I think the the more disturbing thing to me is just lack of response. Mother athletes compared to yeah. Responded to the situation, and it just it seems very hypocritical to me, I had to get very or anything, but it just no. I think you're you have a fair point and I think this is one case when. There is a lack of outrage whether it's real or not. In drew brees, case by the way a guy who. Even though I personally and you probably agree, made a terribly ill time comment considering where we were. It's a guy. A Guy that had well earned a mistake. I mean considering what he has contributed to society. Paul before we let you go I'm just going to tell you. This is the first time ever listen to your show years man. Just cause work and everything but The first time I called in it was back in two thousand eleven was a freshman in Alabama and It was the week four outbound play, Tennessee. And we had it was a big game against Lsu. Game of the century was the week after. And you had installing zone and I call the and Asked what you thought about the possibility of You know if I guess I was looking at for Lsu game. And asked what you thought would happen if Alabama and unless you played a close game, the loser of that game. Could possibly meet the National Championship. They continue to go undefeated. which is of course what happened? But Mr stollings didn't like that too much. He was upset with me because I was looking past Tennessee and that was. Funny Little Memory. That's money, but he you talk about I mean he was the personification of the old school I haven't talked to coach in a while. would be a really good idea to check in with him Having. Evan, the big man get upset with me like that, but yeah, about having been at the other end of that was coach many times. I mean he could do it in in a way that I mean you I mean you. You really did not know what hit you. Slice your arm off. I. I. Fall I appreciate your man. Oh thank you. You're probably time to go to Alabama. Appreciate the call and. I bet so the story. Is this the Ivy League Story They have They're the I d. one conferences suspend football. They won't be the last so their president's essentially. Put All sports on hold into at least January. we're talking football, basketball, cross country and sailing of course. and. the asked. This according to the New York Times asked if about the prospect to play football in the spring. Princeton coach Bob Cereso said one word hope. It's not guaranteed They are hopeful and That is where they are yeah I I, think a lot of people are going to interpret this. In in different ways I know the arrogant approach is who cares what the Ivy League thanks, but I would not say that's I think I think it's important. I mean we're I? Know this is not the Patriot league. It's the Ivy League and it's it's not. It's not the they play there. It is schools that are involved in A. It's interesting. Remember I'll never forget sitting in studio on that Tuesday. And we we, we read the story that the Ivy League had canceled its basketball season. It's is basketball tournament and there was outrage. players were upset. Everyone was upset and two days later. The entire sportsworld had been shutdown. Scott is up next in Texas got. Hey Paul. How are you doing, man? We're doing great. Thank you. So I had a comment. You know going back into this college football and You know NFL and what? We're. GonNa do this season. Everybody keeps throwing around these different ideas we keep talking about and everybody keeps talking about it and one thing I was. Thinking about this actually suggested this a long time ago, even before this corona virus thing. was just space the Games out. Every two weeks put. Let's take a car NFL DO AFC on odd number weeks. NFC on even number weeks. And that way you get two weeks in between now. If there's any quarantining or anything these to happen now, people have their time to take care. Do what they need to do. Sanitize the stadiums. Do whatever you have a home game two weeks almost four weeks later. You have an away. Game seems like 'cause. You're only playing every two weeks and now. Playoff ballgames, everything ends up dragging out the season. For another you know, let's say thirty two weeks which promotes NFL and college fans. They want more football. They you know come December January. People get depressed when football starting to wrap up well, this may be an opportunity now to space things out players now he'll better, because now they have a little bit more time in between gains to rest you can actually you know what say after Corona? Virus the NFL decide. DECIDE THEY WANNA put a a whole division in Europe. Well now you've got two weeks between games. They can actually travel around and do things. You don't need by weeks anymore. You don't need preseason games, and now we can have super bowl in May when it's beautiful, outside and most of the country, and not having to worry about having a super bowl in New York in February where it sucks, and you know the weather's terrible, and it's raining I, just think. There's a lot better ways to do this and said it's everybody's trying to cram it into the first three months in the fall and trying to figure out what we can do. Actually. My opinion, well it it. It's a pretty good one by the way and Yeah I, I will, I'll take that question and. I'll ask some people about it's got I never thought of it but it's a really good idea. Thanks man. How often listen to some comments back? You got to hear from you. Let's check in with. William in in Alabama Birmingham had. Hey Paul! Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. Yeah. I don't know if you've discussed this or mentioned. Eh yesterday's news, but the University of Alabama has suspended paper ticket. We they are going to.

"It Simmons I'm Freddie Coleman to gather we are parading if it's and it's on ESPN appetizers excel AT and them against us by to hang out with us and share the knowledge they're here thanks to sell pencil foreman's line so eleven fifty nine fifty nine AM on Monday that is the doctor has the time NFL teams that they have to designate a franchise tag player which would be the winner goes a long term deal open until July fifteenth each day in Dallas that brings the cowboys close attacking quarterback dak Prescott his rookie contract is expiring all of M. S. cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman has a warning with this quote I'd hate to think what might happen or how that might feel at the end of going the franchise tag route I just don't think that's going to be the best interest of all parties and ultimately I don't think it's in the best interest of the cowboys it could have damaging effects in my opinion so hopefully they'll get a deal done in court that's what he told Sirius XM NFL radio on Wednesday let's bring I met Todd archer does a great job coming to Dallas Cowboys part of ESPN NFL nation he joins us here on Friday Fitzsimmons Todd I know you've heard that quote from Troy Aikman ad nauseam what are your thoughts when he had to say about if the franchise tag happens that could be the result between dak and the cowboys yeah yeah I wrote this back when the cowboys leading into the game against Minnesota that if you put the tag on the quarterback your festival in any place if you don't reach a long term deal you're effectively starting the end of the relationship with quarterback in some ways and Kirk cousins is an example I want to say send the tax systems that in place in the early nineties I think Lincoln three quarter of two quarterbacks that played on the tag and Kirk cousins did it twice I believe drew Brees with the other he was gone after he was out on the tag in San Diego course they drafted Philip rivers I believe it's timing at all office out that worked out but yeah it you have to start wondering about if the is on the tag it's going to show up for the offseason program I will be there for that mandatory mini camp in June now if I've been a project if I get a good fine or anything like that but at that it's not the best way to going to a new with a new coach if your quarterback in that home and they've never contract now there's no way to look at it and say that played for two million dollars last year if you get tags could be twenty seven of thirty two thirty three million this year why would you play for that but I think you know what the cowboys all time we want to have happen what Jack wants that to happen if we believe all these guys if they work out a long term deal it just isn't going to be by the time that deadline that you laid out you want it could be that you start small but I've been to a deal and you're not waiting till three July eleventh talk again about a long term contract you want to start momentum now get that going so five six one accomplished artificial rocks you can program the quarterbacks in the building archer we we gonna talk for years and years what you know as far as when when the Jones family says a deal to get done publicly Dan traditionally a deal gets done and even when you have Ezekiel Elliott and Thabo right indeed the Jones family dig in their heels and guess what he became the highest paid running back in the National Football League when it comes to the terms and what is preventing dak and the cowboys and Todd France dax agent and the cowboys from reaching a long term contract from everyone you talk to what is it it's all the above it the length of the contract if the guaranteed money if the average per year I mean they're there they might be close in certain aspects of those three things but if you're not close at all three dot balls and all three you're not close to a deal and this is been something that they've been trying to bridge this gap insurance stocks when they start talking about this thing last spring right you know it and they thought they were close the cowboys did they thought they were close right at the start of the season right around thirty two right around data because you want the others though that number out there not the specific number but its contract right and then what happened yeah I got a great start in those first three games cowboys three no idea Levin touchdown passes maybe one interception and all button numbers changed and they didn't talk again until they they got the combine so you know you're you're talkin a good five months without really any conversation it's hard to believe that they could close that gap between the combine and here it is this upcoming deadline to think they can get a deal done even once even Jones tells us all the time if both sides are motivated to get a deal done that they can happen and and hours if not minutes the only other time I remember it happened that quickly for the cowboys but actually last April when they signed the market's Lawrence this five year hundred five million dollar deal that's right sixty five guaranteed that was a situation where Lawrence had shoulder surgery that he needed the cowboys knew we needed to have ready for week one and they hammered out pretty quickly and hammered out this way the market's losses on the phone with Stephen Jones I think that has to be the way that this thing would happen with that is that there's direct communication between the team the player with the agent and not just leaving a player on the outside the cowboys have done their big deal here lately from are the markets where Terence Newman Tony Romo Jason Witten and even now lately with the markets Lawrence and Andy Kelly it this is a situation where the the players were involved back Martin other one he said I want forty million average and forty guaranteed the deal was done pretty quickly after that great so by Todd archer ESPN info nations cowboys reporter joining Freddie and Fitzsimmons on ESPN radio as soon as I can tell eighty now dak Prescott told USA today school do you USA today sports that if he gets that he said and I quote all this is the same message that this your set but obviously I want to win I'm so by that a gallon gambled on myself my whole life end quote what kind of message was he sending to the cowboys with that yeah yeah I think you know he said it a couple times where what is that you can be around the facility can be and you know he's got it left the door is not completely shut the door and being around but he's got a lot of you know that Hey this is a possibility that it's a situation where you might not see me and the last time that happened for the cowboys but the franchise that was in twenty fifteen with Dez Bryant showed up sparingly the offseason program didn't sign his contract until minutes before that July fifteenth deadline and then what happened today yeah early on in that year really what Dez Bryant that whole season and maybe not the rest of his of his career so it's not using his side of the leverage W's mares eventually if both sides said they want to get this done it should be that hard I'm forcing threatened Hardbody thank that month that archer what about Amari Cooper I had the sense that they believe they'll be able to get something done with Amari before free agency opened in outlook there correct the whole if the CBA classes yeah one dag if it doesn't pass gets you tag structure on these contracts is kind of tied into what happened with players vote but the sense what Amari Cooper is that they believe that they're going to get a deal done my guess is it'll be a shorter deal than we see in the cowboys do with their big time stars you know for five six years I don't think will be a deal that would be that long with this locking with a new head coach and it's really not adversity my opinion with dak Prescott because Todd Indian you guys right it's going to get a deal done with him it's going to get a deal with a mark Cooper so we're not gonna have this kind of cloud hanging over Mike McCarthy as head coach but now that they have with the town at his disposal what is that going to be like because we know he's the anti Jason Garrett but do the cowboys realize exactly what they've gotten into with Mike McCarthy yeah I I think if you look at the resumes of the coaches your available at the time it's hard to say anybody had a better one in with the nine playoff seasons for NFC title game but obviously the Superbowl thirty one at the at the cowboys home stadium in Arlington Texas so that is clearly what the cowboys wanted an upgrade around here forever yeah well you know since Parcells left right at a guy that has to close ranks as one of Superbowl knows what it takes if the quarterback not around it might because you said this the the this program is designed around the quarterback do you have kids that and everything else follows if that's not here I'm not one to make a huge deal over offseason programs and and all that but if you thought here for whatever tweaks will be in this offense because those languages in a largely be the same Gallimore gains the play caller but if he's not around but that's I mean I'm no not breaking news or that's not a good thing that's not the way you want to start a relationship between the the head coach and the quarterback through no fault of either guy like you just this is just the the business of the NFL that that's got to get in the way archer there's no basketball and hockey what are your hockey guy right there's no baseball yeah what are your kids that have little league is that how you're tying up your time right now well that's been canceled through my daughter plays flex soccer and and their stuff is been pushed off to the side for a couple weeks as well so I help now what I guess like I gotta hop in the peloton a little bit more I got rid of we are real quick I don't know what the total time to give to you I get from a family member it was a birthday present from my for my wife to me so settle him as a result of that is that you love but okay all right we've not made a commercial so we're going forward we are holding when it comes to Todd hi Sir yes municipal job with reporters always give him a follow at

S. soccer federation Carlos canal but I remember after the night that the United States men's national team failed to qualify for the World Cup Scott van pelt on his SportsCenter show asked me if I believe that this could be fixed and I answered this I said my heart says yes but my brain tells me no soon very few times in my life my brain is being correct and yet here we are March twelve twenty twenty hello Carlos Cordeiro steps down as president that's fine who's the next leader where is the leadership going to come from how is this thing going to move forward that was two thousand seventeen and yet you're asking me a question about a federation in a twenty six hundred page legal filing saying that biological sciences the reason why men should make more money than the women you've got to be kidding me and yet I still look in the camera right now and I ask everyone that is following this what's the board of directors going to do now the onus is on you to find the right leader in to get this ship going forward versus backward I just didn't think we'd still be having this conversation on March twelfth twenty twenty but the reality is we are and the fact is the women more often than not or more visible and have been more successful for the men but here we are having a sports centre head talking about what biological science this is where U. S. soccer is at the present moment it's well said biological science in the filings they just mentioned that the speed and the strength that the men play with and that obviously set off a lot of alarm bells so the next step for the women is this on may fifth there's gonna be a huge trial that's going to take place in the winter looking for sixty six million dollars in damages a lot of legal experts are saying they're probably not gonna be able to get that that particular about as they fight for equal pay gender discrimination pay discrimination but what should we be looking for as we move toward that date in court for that amount of money zero but Wednesday I on my show digital show on Twitter Facebook you tube in the ESPN app it's called banter with Taylor Twellman and I mentioned that the crux of this situation is this it is thirty four million dollars the difference in the FIFA competitions for the men and women that is not on U. S. soccer to file that that is not on U. S. soccer to come up with that that's a fact that's not an opinion however their incompetency in the way they've covered this it's probably going to cost them more money now that sixty six million that's it in combination with other stuff but U. S. soccer right now on March twelfth twenty twenty is offering the women the exact same contract as the man here's the issue the men don't want to renegotiate their deal until the women do because then they're going to follow it up and say well no no no we want ten to fifteen percent more you want to put the nail in the coffin and knocked is dead both representations of the many women walk why didn't write any U. S. soccer federation you negotiate the deal vaccine quality not trying to warn each other up but that sixty six million thirty four million the thirty four million civil support number for the average viewer to understand that is the fee for decision that is not a U. S. soccer decision and anyone arguing that U. S. soccer is in charge of that when are you open up a whole nother can of worms saying wait a minute U. S. soccer's now the responsible for FIFA's viewer racism that's not true features had their head in the sand for the last thirty to forty years U. S. soccer doesn't have to pay that thirty four million because FIFA is incompetent it looks at women on equal to men that's a different common conversation if that makes any sense that is Taylor Twellman on SportsCenter Cordero is going to be replaced by Cindy Parlow Cohn who had been serving as a USSF vice president that's gonna do it for sports center all night go look in the window next it's ESPN radio figure out a way to allow this season to have a champion a playoff system that is fair based on what's clearly going to be games lost the regular season that they're not.
What to make of Blackhawks moves on NHL trade deadline day
"And talk a little bit more about what the Blackhawks did we bring in Charlie a room only autos from Anna corona hotline from N. B. C. sports Chicago Charlie how are you tonight Fred you nailed my last name they're not a lot of people can do that on the first try well I've been I've said it three times during the show so I try to get it right it is actually the more you look at it the more it is exactly like it's spelled sell it all but that is I'm I'm sure I'm sure you've got a letter from cap though well yeah well I in everything we've all got lessons from cap have only let's be honest yeah yeah we generally did did the Blackhawks get get done what they wanted to do today I think the goal and Stan Bowman even said this in a conference call it should basically recruit some of those graphics that they gave up for the end you're salty on it and try to get a you know they got a goal tender in return in a defenseman prospect but I think if you put them on a lie detector test or some truth serum okay perfect probably would have loved to get a first round pick out of out of today is that the reality is the market wasn't really to their favorite like six six first round picks removed in the month of February and neither one of those picks removed for rental so the Blackhawks moved to other youth expiring USA then they got a second round pick in the end plus prospects and then a third round pick forgot to send in a little bit underwhelming but you know that's what the market dictated it's interesting you bring that up Charlie because I guess the question at this point that is do you think the hawks waited too long in determining whether or not they were to sell it because obviously they had a little run there you know in the end of the at the end of December and January what it felt like they were getting hot do you think they maybe put too much stock in the fact that they were playing well but you know at the same time they they were still on the outside looking in it when when you're finally you know got around to the trade deadline here yeah it it's a good point and you wonder if the the blackouts could have gotten more for robin Lehner if they had treated him earlier but at the same time went when they come out of that bye week and they come out with a big win against Arizona like if they had it really had quite off type vibes where this team was close to knocking on the door and then you go on that five game western Canada trip and if you take care of business there like you're you're probably gonna be about a playoff spot if you pick up six seven point six or eight points on that trip and and that the fact they only picked up a few things started to spiral then obviously the we saw a lot of trade happened last week where a lot of defenseman got moved in and you wondered if the Blackhawks were gonna pull the trigger on America if it's been deleted get out in front of that but they stayed patient and I don't know if they were trying to package and Eric Gustafson with another asset like a robin letter to try all the packaging of the return and try to get that first round pick that they're covering but unfortunately they weren't able to make it happen Charlie you mentioned letter there and I think a lot of hawks fans are wondering he he will reportedly he was willing to consider a three year deal with the hawks now you know I don't know if we've seen confirmation of that report but it's out there that robin Lehner was willing to potentially talk a three year deal with the hawks do you think that something that was truly in their interest or do you think they just don't want to be locked up long term with robin Lehner due to maybe a quirky history to say the least well I I'm not sure about it because robin Lehner is on record saying that he didn't want to take a discount like you felt like you wanted to be paid market value and and he deserves that what whatever he was asking for he deserves what he wants and if the Blackhawks were gonna offer him he offered what he wanted like he had every right to take it to and and has every right to take it to the summer and get exactly what he's looking for the the fact that if you know the Hawkins did offer a three year deal letter would have been willing to take lasted it do a three year deal I feel like the team would have pulled the trigger on it because I I don't know necessarily if they were looking to try a lot of money and term to to robin letter because that's just not exactly how they operate in it we see all around the NHL now teams are very reluctant to give big contracts to goaltender than in the Florida Panthers are seeing it right now they they find Sir David Gonski two an eight year contract worth ten point five million dollars and he has been performing this season so I think maybe that's also what is scaring off the hawks and wanted to have that type of security with the goaltender another couple minutes where's Charlie Roumeliotis from the Blackhawks insider at NBC sports Chicago the guys they get back for a for a letter is is that yes they need to get some names back or is to Bangor to be their back up for the rest of the season or what you know what's going on yeah I imagine so I read in Markham Sudan will be the Blackhawks is back up you know barring any injuries and I know the Blackhawks do have calling deleon Kevin Lincoln in downtown Rockford who have both been playing really well like Kevin like that had a really good start to the season that now his play has tailed off Collin Delia really struggled at the beginning of the year and now he's been really good so if you have two young goaltenders in Rockford but I imagine now comes through and it's probably gonna be grooms here said to either be the backup going forward at least for the rest of the season and then we'll see beyond this year Charlie do you think a Jonathan Tay's will finish his career with the Blackhawks there's been rumblings are speculation mostly from fans that you know he could be somebody down the line the hawks might consider moving if they they were able to get a hall for him but to me Jonathan tapes just seems like the type of player who gently down the Blackhawks want retiring in a Blackhawks Jersey yes absolutely and I I don't blame Patrick Kane Jonathan three Duncan Keith those core players I don't blame them for being frustrated like they want to win in Chicago but the the problem is if they don't want to go somewhere else to win another ring like their soul that and they have no movement clauses in their contracts read that they want to spend the rest of your career here in Chicago and they want to win the Stanley Cup again in Chicago so I don't see that it man it would be if thirteen is out of date senior retired Black Hawk that it wouldn't feel right if they if they went somewhere else Charlie one last quick one for you what is the biggest need for the hawks this offseason to try and get them back on track and into the playoff conversation next year yes hi it's tough because you kind of want to see how this you know they've been battered by injuries particularly that of the blue line with Calvin Han and Brent Seabrook and then Andrew Shaw you know I would I would sail and it is those guys need to get healthy first and then you want to see how your developments are going with Adam vocalist and Kirby dach but to me ideally like you need you need another top six winger like you need another top six four they have Jonathan Tate and Kirby docking Dylan Strome and and obviously Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat but they don't have really that photo type scoring winger that can help balance out the lines and I'm not saying that the Blackhawks have it all made on their depth on their defensive group because they tell but you look at the reality is they have five guys under contract for at least the next two seasons after that and that's not even including Adam vocalist and potentially Ian Mitchell so I want to say a top four defenseman but it just didn't seem feasible because all the they have all these guys tied up Charlie I know it's been a long day we appreciate jump around for a few minutes no problem guys thanks for having me

MLB playoffs: What a Game 4 rainout means for the Yankees and Astros in the ALCS
"Six so your mother nature won the battle when it comes to Major League Baseball American League Championship Series no game four on Wednesday that was expected game four is going to happen on Thursday night eight o'clock eastern time on ESPN radio and ESPN at both managers had to speak on in terms of the benefits of a post poll game first AJ hands of the Houston Astros gives everybody if they often have an opportunity collectors cells before gas for changes are pitching a little bit how beneficial it is probably easier to answer after I see how guys perform and how the pitching plays out but I guess it's kind of a wait and see but I does solidify who we starting game for game five without having to go to a bowl game and Yankees manager when it comes to a player coming back that'll be another conversation even though he hasn't been able to go yet I gave you and then the potential option off the bench in the heating situation if we like something so I don't look at it as were entirely twenty four man right now I do believe we have as bad off the bench right now and whether a situation for that arises we'll see but will continue to evaluate the best smartly as we can move forward to do you some Giancarlo Stanton who believes will be another battle of the bands I firmly believe this whoever wins game four will win the ALCS I think the Yankees the win in six I'm not going to back up that prediction I think the day off could help both teams if you the ask George W. pitching if you the New York Yankees get a chance to maybe get a little mo Jo back at the having a bad slow down losing game two and game three either way took the toll the after the better team but I believe were wins game four win ALCS I think with that team is going to be the Yankees may because I picking the winner six I'm not going to back down from the production right after those in seven sticking with the Astros in seven I don't care who wins game four the is starting pitching to me is the key to any post season team surviving in advancing as a great Jim Bob on a one seven kind came the NC double a tournament surviving advancing in M. L. B. post season all about starting pitching to me and the the best rotation the best horses on the hill goes easily with the Astros and wears game seven in Houston if we get there that's it that's the kicker right there for me is if the if the giving gets to Houston and then for the Yankees in the E. if it goes seven that's their long relievers and when they become leverage real relievers when I never heard of that before tonight before you mention that four different stories I read today will leverage really quick what noted is is is is like mold management became part of it and yeah looks at this and everything in long re yeah leave our yeah or just read the verse they haven't had to use on and three more than three figurines all season now you can ask them to go for for the first time ever with everything on the line and you put that pressure on you also we about stress innings right in stressful pitches in well this is a little bit more stressful than they've had to go through the entire regular season so to me it's all about the starting lineup Yankee fans they don't want to hear it but great he has not been good the post season but I got some guy even if you win game forty Riverland there in five then another duty may have to face call Gerrit Cole who is like the modern day version of sandy Koufax right now you've been unavailable since may so he scuffled by his standards with five walks in seven innings that's coupling is scuffling but the Yankees lineup will make you sick awful I don't believe the Yankees are intimidated or afraid of these guys now I agree with that as well then we don't have the Yankees getting in touch with their inner symbols cardinals and the national back like Houston Astros because the national thoroughly intimidated the Saint Louis cardinals that team was beat up on the feet of the metagame for even got started they had no chance of winning that game even they tried to make a comeback at the being now seven nothing I think the Yankees fully believe having a day off would be the perfect a mixer for them to get everything right because there's not a pitching staff that they don't believe that they can't handle no matter how terrific those guys are lander Reekie as well as call he's if it's in the Freddie Coleman Freddie if it's Simmons on ESPN radio Sirius XM channel eighty of the yanks are going to knock a who was sensational the start this series in game four but he doesn't go a third term through the line up because the analytic geeks say well when he goes through a third time in the line up they they're hitting three oh nine if the guys in a groove right you mean the mother figure out what he's tipping or what he's missing in that third time through you have as many brains watching all these stats and in every game figure it out but in this situation may have to knock a is it in a groove you leave him in there but they don't want to do it they haven't done it and now Freddie it's one that drives me nuts you know right you got this guy who's who's dealing through sex you probably because the numbers say so that that drives me insane the Astros don't do that even though there is number geeky is anybody maybe even more so than anyone out there right now to get involved with trying to steal secrets on the cardinals when they used to work for them all about **** now that'll to do holes what two hundred articles on again but AJ Hinch is one of those guys that's also eyeball if you're rolling man you're sticking but I'm a sticking with you so that's why I like it the Astros you no matter who wins who wins tonight I think that that that that night all this postponement favors distros because now you've got green key Enver lander both on regular rest and then you still have even have great he has gone up the skirt a couple times obviously the post season you've got overlander and coal Berlin under in coal you got to win two games I would put my money on those two over whatever the yanks so out in a leverage relievers and then you want to throw at the astronaut I look at it this way by the way we had read Ryan the present Houston Astros he joins earlier on Freddie if it's Simmons he knows exactly how good these Yankees team is and he knows this service is far from over you know I love it it's it's a great great route your current kicks back to fifteen we played in the wild card it obviously seventeen we win the World Series but what what a great seven game series the home team won one all the games and this year we we took four out of seven from home and you know we won three at home they won the first it was the final game of the season that that you know we ended up winning and here in New York and so all of these games get their nip and tuck it's a dog fight and just because we're out to one side does not mean that that this thing is over if it were a cruise control because that team their Yankee Stadium they're stacked we've got arms they've got power they've got great players all over the place cash did a great job with that club together and looking around and got a couple of stood on the bump and that we got you got you can swing it pretty good it was amazing that when the Yankees won game one everybody's like while they beat the daylights out of the Astros which they did in game one no doubt winning seven nothing the Astros win game two in game three the Astros are in control of this series of bacon all on a second control be three one to me yeah two one they're not in control of the service as I was yeah that me it if you're gonna use that tack with the out of being in control is saying that the Astros are in control my god Ian watching the MOB network watch ESPN and others forgot the baseball people on TV and was on radio all many **** how control is there's a two one you'd be amazed how many times I heard that today they got the point us okay I'm I'm not gonna be part of definition sandy with this kind of stupidity going out there get that one game in the series means you're in control no it doesn't I think this thing's going seven it's going to be epic then the only reason I like the strokes is because of what we read Ryan just mentioned there those two horses they've got on the hill Enver lander and cold at the Yankee still have to face what is your major league baseball you need this to go seven the NASA took care of business if you got a potential rivalry like this with the met in the playoffs two thousand fifteen two thousand seventeen and now two thousand nineteen you get a seven game series and now you have a cross country robbery so to speak was not these two teams in the same division or two teams on the same coast you got the big Ole boys in New York City and a good Ole country boys down Houston colliding in the series if you have that kind of heat that you can generate you could potentially have your latter day forty Niners cowboys or paid many versus Tom Brady because you got a big city I got a bigger city without a baseball city when it comes to Houston if his goal seven it could do Major League Baseball a world of good that they could have never imagined and never even had to beg borrow or steal if the Yankees Astros give us and Major League Baseball with the looking

K. spending her childhood on the south coast of England now he's the coach for the US women's national team Jill Ellis will take the American team in the World Cup semi finals against England Nancy armour USA today earlier on ESPN radio all right now she Jill they grew up in England she was born there live there tells you about fourteen her father was soccer coach over there with them back there for the football association which is England's national federation on but then came in the face and and she's and coming to America with him was what gave her a chance to play in a lot of people don't realize that that women were actually not allowed to play soccer and England from nineteen twenty one to nineteen seventy one so she was never able to play organized soccer and in England and she said you know had she not come to the state Jenna where she she certainly wouldn't be coaching but when somebody said to her the other day about phone again against your homeland shoes very quickly said I I'm a US citizen for years so she has new English roots but she is very much an American so you know I don't think there's any any kind of question the split loyalties or anything like that how did the Americans avoid any sort of let down after that big match against France that was sort of billed as the biggest game of the tournament and how does the area and the crowd seem to be for this upcoming match after the you know the bubble burst on the home team and they're still in the interests and locally which I think is is tremendous and I think if the organizers and people actually did a really smart thing by having both semi finals and the final here Leon which is it is the epicenter of women's soccer made the Olympic Winter Games team and eight other the Golden State Warriors women's soccer here and I'll be back on the Toronto raptors now right people here laden soccer they loved women soccer and there's a vibe around how which is great I wondered if there would be kind of a let down after the French came but the women have shifted shifted lines that pretty quickly and I don't know if it's moving city that allows them to do that or what but you know and even just the focus is that they've got you know I don't think that there's going to be any kind of that a lot against England US in England Tuesday in the World Cup semis three o'clock eastern time Netherlands in suite in the other semi day from now straight ahead how is the balance of power shifted in the Eastern Conference that's next for general my continues its ESPN radio this field where you want to be here why because we know what we're.

"My in for infant Simmons on, Freddie Coleman of freddieandfitz Simmons on ESPN radio, I'm not dismissing that at all. But I'm on record by saying if there's going to be a formal meeting and wants Magic Johnson in that meeting if I'm Jeanie Buss, I'm not letting Magic Johnson that meeting, I can't stop Magic Johnson and having a conversation. Nobody can it's a players Lee to your point, the players are going to get what they want how they want when they want and everybody is fine with that. But if I'm having having a former meaning if I'm the Lakers and Jeanie Buss as an ownership, no matter what I think about rob Pelinka. He's still my general manager. I'm not going to support Magic Johnson in that meeting over guy. There's still an employee. A former employee of the Los Angeles Lakers. No clock. You don't want it's not true. Because if you're going to have a former meeting the Brian James going to be in that meeting, of course you want. If you really didn't want to why then genie buses just talking to them and having no, lebrons James, no gentlemen, rob Pelinka. That's really just a smokescreen genius. Look, you don't wanna be here anyway, or we don't want you here. I'm just gonna show up. We'll have tacos then you're going about your business. That's not going to be the case. If you're Jeanie Buss to me, if I'm her as the Los Angeles Lakers. I'm letting them know look, this is who we are now this is what we're going to do going forward, a guy that's only hear informally is not going to be a part of the future that we want you to be a part of. That's the most important thing is not a part of it. So what is the Lakers? He's not the Lakers, now based on what they need to do. He is not the Lakers. Now. What the Lakers right now is LeBron James. That's wild land. It's going to be playing with. He's that'd be playing Magic Johnson unless he pulls for the music video and dies back into the past. They play the Lakers Showtime, that's the only way they're going to be teammates right now. The Lakers all the Bron, James businesses basketball team, Anthony Davis, when this becomes completely formal. He's the Lakers that's going forward. That's, that's what on selling the collide Lynn. If I'm Jeanie Buss now, believe me. I live on planet earth. There's no way that if they're going to have a meeting and Magic Johnson is going to be there and it wants to be there that Magic Johnson is going to be there formally or informally. I'm just saying if I'm Jeanie Buss, if there's a meeting and it's a former one and he wants Magic Johnson either. I'm not letting Magic Johnson in there based on what he did going out the door. And we even when he was there, he wasn't doing that much for the Lakers, will clearly the Lakers can't. If says, I want to meet with Magic Johnson informally. Nobody can stop that right? Right. To me. What I'm saying is Jeanie Buss would be wise to say magic. He wants this meeting the happen. Please say nice things about our organization. If I'm not if he that flight in LA and says, listen when I step off the plane, I want somebody holding a giant bag of skittles, for me, and I want you to be playing to pocket the airport, you can do it, although rob language, probably say, hey, I know to park, I play golf with him every week. But Magic Johnson as an informal component of this situation if you're the Lakers, you do not discourage him from meeting with Leonard because you may not get a formal meeting if that doesn't go, there's a reason why literature saying that's the guy wanna hear from. And you're right right now, the Lakers on the Bron, and if they're lucky they'll have Anthony Davis for the next decade and his prime and then Davis will be the Lakers and maybe quad comes aboard and. He's the Lakers, as well for the next six seven eight years. Magic Johnson has been the Lakers for forty years. This guy is an icon. That's why qua- wants to meet with him. And if I'm the Lakers, I am not discouraging. I'm encouraging that and saying, listen. I don't care if rob link gets his feelings hurt. I want that man to do whatever you have to do to help me get the guy who was the most coveted free agent on the market right now. Magic work your magic. Jeff New Mexico at eight seven to nine three seven seven six. Jeff would have to say about this on Freddie and Fitz, Simons with Freddie coming in my Metcalf. My friend. Well, the first thing is all credibility as an owner and any semblance of control of she lets magic in that formal. Camping. Go ahead. Go ahead, Jeff. I was gonna say the second thing is he said that he wanted to be magic. Right. You want to be able to taxi call players and say, congratulations without getting fine. That's part of the reason why you said he left. So let him go meet with fly informally. But you said let him go. Chicago's. And they can talk about how to an edible working seventy five percents paycheck advocate show, how to work only fifty percents. Jeffrey win hitting a three fan and his face the buzzer from that standpoint and believe me, I hear what you're saying about magic being icon but other than the basketball floor as a player what has he really done in a front office capacity? What his you can't say that Brunton LeBron James LeBron is gonna Lakers, anyway, you could have Johnson Magic Johnson Johnson there. He's still have gone to the Lakers from that standpoint. So magic didn't had that much sway in my opinion with a broad James during the Lakers. So realistically, when you look at Magic Johnson him being missed a Laker. That's a basketball on the court thing. That's a public relations thing more than anything else, especially not the Lakers. You need somebody who's gonna let somebody know that, hey, he's always going to be part of this Lakers organization. The great Magic Johnson, but going forward to make sure that we're not still in the same abyss collide, Leonard, we needed a per, but those two guys over there, and Anthony Davis LeBron James and be these Lakers and can't be about the past anymore. It can't be about icons anymore. It can't be about the jersey. The raptors anymore. It's gotta be about. We need you Leonard to get us out of the abyss. No matter what Magic Johnson says. No metal kind of informal meeting, you two guys are going to have. Yeah. I wonder what happens when rob pulling could call kuwa- is number even saved does he think it's spammy probably assumes that some spam, call, you know, rob lake's number to call these answered every no, no just think I just think that if it becomes down to feelings and ego and pride. I don't care about any of that collide. Linnet is a generational talent. And if he wants to talk to magic before he makes the decision you encourage that if you're the Lakers, you do not discourage that keep weighing in about this one. The kid Wayne is on the phone number. Triple eight say ESPN eight, eight eight, seven nine three seven seven six. Magic Johnson informal meeting, former meaning Coalisland Los Angeles Lakers. But a straight talk wireless. Everything for less only at WalMart. He's my Metcalf and for infants Simmons. Freddie coleman. A Freddie and Fitz Simons as I mentioned keep. Weighing in on this at triple eight say ESPN, eight, seven to nine three seven seven six. And the Golden State Warriors are determined to be this historic team. Keep it here on ESPN radio..

Police: Robert Kraft paid for sex act before AFC Championship
"So on Friday involving Robert Kraft the patriots owner the allegations. But no charges were out. There about him going to a place in Jupiter Florida and engaging in sex acts in the words, sex trafficking was put next to him even though people not putting him in the same box with that. Then on Monday charges have been filed against Robert Kraft in terms of that he visit eight massage parlor the morning of the AFC championship game. And it was the second visit by him to that parlor in less than twenty four hours. Let's bring my friend TJ Quin ESPN investigator reporter who is here. Thanks to shell Pennzoil performance line. What kind of lawyers or what kind of expertise is he going to need to give them underneath this. Orange. Know exactly what the evidence says. Because I haven't seen was described. I spoke to people from the prosecutor's office today. Basically quite confident of what they've got. It sounds like the kind of case. Very hard for out of Scott police identifying here is coming out of there after the cheese. What they do this. Yeah. They did they were over on a pretext traffic stuff related to this massage. Parlor, so they could get their ideas to video they adjust recorded in this spot. So they say that they got a crash ide- that night. They say the second night that it is crystal-clear Simona video. If that's the case, I don't know how you get out of charge. Like this even if it is what kind of jail time. Could it be looking at if any probably not? Both full offender baby aggravating. Says things like this really expect service. Call diversion. That teaches you about human trafficking. You have to tell you the fine could be like five thousand dollars. The least also Kim Barrasso and. The video. There's a very good chance of Florida has very liberal sunshine was related to the release of the documents. And that video is a public document. So it worked the whole. Pixellated or maybe the ended out there the worst products. But I would imagine that's challenges those high-paid baller. Would imagine trying everything they could to keep out from coming out practically everybody had the question why when it comes to this and Robert Kraft what question the TJ Quinn ESPN investigator reporter had when you heard about this on Friday. That was his exact question. Those resources gonna strip mall eight miles away from his house. I don't even know how many other places like that. He'd have to pass again. But what I asked for some people. It's not just here. There's serious high rollers very wealthy accomplished people who were also going there. And I said what is it? It about this place and was. They don't know what the answer. That was the big thing today. And also another thing I was curious about of course, was the age of the women that allegedly service, then one of the things I figured out a couple of different documents to Weber identified as being which have our forty five and fifty eight years old. People to others who was a question or the women. Rage. And one of the two women. The forty-five-year-old was actually Charles. Four. She actually ran the place. So I don't know how she got to this country or how she got into that. But in this case, she was wearing the show allegedly and was charged with four different counts related to prostitution TJ. Gwen ESPN investigator reporter with Freddie Cohen on Freddie and Fitz Simons on ESPN radio and ESPN app. You can follow him on Twitter at TJ Quin, ESPN the minute that I heard about all this on Friday TJ, the first thing I had in my mind was okay. The NFL situation because we know the NFL they don't do things according to the law or the court of law at a law public opinion. They're going to do things according to their law, and they've always been big about protecting the shield in holding owners to a higher standard. Then the players with this information. If it turns out to be true with Robert Kraft, how much trouble is he in with the NFL. Well, I don't know. Portray myself as an expert on this. Really other people I've read and just looking around. It's the best comparable case with the earth. Say something embarrassing to the league, probably a whole one. But it seems unlikely to be more serious than that certainly not as some people were speculating guessing mostly dolphins and jets fans that he would somehow be forced to sell the team. I can't it doesn't seem like that could possibly be the case. After the Super Bowl victory. Number five. That trophy except for a little more because of what they went through with the fleet date. So there there is no loss. What could Robert Kraft say about this whole deal TJ, man? If I knew that I'd be charging. I heard from a spokesperson was he didn't finally laws. Now that's up for a question of law. He did. Actually, just being careful. They don't want to say something. Avenue. Fight them. It's true. Great stuff by TJ Quinn. ESPN investigator reporter with Freddie Coleman on Freddie and Fitz Simons, an ESPN radio. I can't wait to hear an actual voice, meaning Robert Kraft because at a certain point he's going to have to have a have a press conference. It has to go beyond statements asked to go beyond that. I'm sure the NFL is paying close attention. But how close to the NFL PA the NFL players associates to be looking at this closely to see exactly what kind of punishment could be coming down for Robert Kraft. You know, but the but the league I imagine the question they weren't says by cancer, these well, somehow, the only two kinds you went there get he go to other places, or there are other women that are possibly waited younger was she aware that there was any trafficking place. Those are the bigger questions of the NFL is first I is to figure out what they don't know an award to question craft extensively because the biggest thing that they were to avoid another situation where they ask turns out that they nest of information out there like rice. In other cases, we can take out. That's gonna be the biggest thing is making sure that they know the entire story. The state attorney in the state of Florida TJ is going to have a tough job because as you put on Twitter, you had asked him if the wealth and fame of craft would mean different treatment, his response was I can assure you our office treats, everyone the same and that they hope to send a message by prosecuting people like this in this situation realistic TJ, how tough is that going to be for the state attorney in the state of Florida to hear them say it, they think the evidence is so overwhelming they're not gonna have a problem again. I'm an attorney. Away, by your legal opinion. Right around enough. You go after the evidence could argue that he was trapped. Well, sure that et cetera. I drove up who is observed walking anymore. Could you argue that it wasn't him? Well, they've already got sworn statements. Officers that they identified and positively out of there, and they say that is criminal. I gotta find that video. That's the case. I don't know. I don't care who your lawyer is. That's.

Colts' Andrew Luck takes 'big step' in return from injury
"Andrew luck is actually playing tonight for the Indianapolis Colts play against Seattle opening him to have a Twitter. Account I don't know if Andrew luck houses down it would take a waste of time that block. Anybody he has better things to, do but I. Digress but he's actually out there right. Now the colts have the ball inside Seattle's, thirty seven yard line facing a fourth down in. One I'm glad to be wrong because I still wonder if he was going to start the season and be under center for. Week. One I'm thrilled to be wrong because my Andrew luck, fan I enjoy watching him play and I miss them playing out. There I know colts fans missed and playing because that seems a lot better with. Him then without, him I'm not telling anybody any kind of news, here but just seeing him out there spraying the ball around being do dishes when he decides to run getting, down It's really really cool to, see a guy out there that I did not think that we're. Gonna see it all in the preseason or definitely to start the season when it. Came the week, one you also had some people wondering why are, they playing Andrew luck here in preseason game number one when the dress rehearsal is until preseason game number three He hasn't played folks in nearly two, seasons, so as many reps as that. He can get back to shake in some of that off -solutely I think it was a smart move to have. Him, out there and get as many reps as. He possibly can because you can try and simulate so, many? Different variables about an NFL, game the one thing that. You. Cannot simulate is game speed true true game speed can't. Do it and so. I thought, it was very smart by them to say to put him out there start getting some wraps again start seeing that game again at live speed you can try and simulated and camp doesn't. Come close right or you can, come close but it's not the same yeah and so any I. Guarantee we also have strict instructions anybody comes near you Airmail or get to hell down and I think it's great s-o-f-i has them at the Seattle seventeen yard. Line, on his first drive he has looked razor-sharp. So far just like Dak Prescott he's donate touchdown pass, with. The Dallas Cowboys and it, was not the number eighty. Eight.

The winners of, this year's Super Bowl according to. Simulations that a lot of people say got gotta writer got it wrong and I said, it's just a video game relax but it also shows that when you have.

Big Bank and it was used in mad nineteen and Colin cabinet part of that song and the song, didn't have that as part of. The soundtrack EA said in a statement. On Thursday evening I'll read it word for word we made an unfortunate mistake without mad NFL soundtrack members about team is, understood the fact that while.

It's all he's ever really had a passion to do. This gives them a chance to stay active as a coach and the person to be involved in a game it's a golden. Opportunity to get on the field and be involved in who knows where that's. Going to. Lead he is still delusional about that That somehow some way that if he was. A championship in the American football Italian league than an NFL team accountability team say you know our brows learned. His lesson let's bring him back Come on Johnny Manziel on the, other side many people wanting to see exactly what the second act is going to be. Even visit even if it's in, the CFL the ratings. Would gain I guarantee you'll be buffalo, because of you know who. Basil said it's good to be back. In here I feel like the thing I've been missing even over the course of this year and a couple of years. Is reps and as you guys have seen the last couple of days a chance to give the ones meaning the starters and get some reps is what I feel like I really need and what I've talked to a lot of. People about so I feel very blessed to be in this position to be back in a situation where I'm, starting again. It's good it's a, quick turnaround but at the same time I'm excited for the opportunity, in quote I root for I root for people to overcome. Their demons Lord knows. Johnny Manziel plenty of, demons plenty but he was getting his. Party all maybe he has finally come the realization that if I really love football, that much I better devote the time enough to make it work. For me At least give it, a shot to be completely clear and not like I was before Plenty of people don't the, NFL they have long memories if they believe they have. An inkling of doubt about. You that may be too many mountains for Johnny Manziel overcome I wish him the best they're going to be a lot of people that'll, pay attention because when you're former Heisman Trophy winner when you were. Celebrated like he was you're going to get people's attention, even as only for two seconds if it is with two seconds for Johnny Manziel sake I'll hope is. A good two seconds because previously it has not. Been a good hour for.
