I think they put it out tuesday. Yeah i'm i'm trying to remember all the different days And it was just telling a true story you know i went and played football at. Unlv didn't play very much But i got to go to school for free and the first place they ever took me on. My recruiting trip was about and then the next year. I think it was well that year and the next year in particular making eighty. I got the usher ali home in the backyard. There at caesar's nil days. You know before all these fancy stadiums and arenas around town. They would set up a temporary boxing ring. I i can't say precisely whereas i remember. It's behind the building in the back by the swimming pools. I think by the tennis courts and it was so fun. I mean what crazy thing. Growing up in little kent washington going to las vegas for school. Now i'm an usher at professional prizefight mohammed ali. Twenty feet away from me like those were kinda crazy times and to get to you know. Come back. I'm going back many many times both work and to visit. Unlv and speak at the school and do different. Things coached arcadian memorial service. Like i've been there whole bunch different times through the years and then you know it all turned out how it turned out. I ended up leaving. Espn and she's one of the companies that approach me not long after an here we are. I'm gonna ask you question before we wrap. Because i teach at. Unlv that i'll. I'm gonna ask you about it before we wrap up some heads up. I'm going to ask you if something in a second. But what month were you outside ushering. A boxing fight was that was it hot outside. I believe it was october. Fifth nineteen eighty. Because i broke my leg october twenty fifth. I don't know. I don't know if i'd either date per perfectly right My junior year. Nineteen eighty second-string guided. Larry gentry's the starter and started playing a little bit. Not a lot and up at oregon broke my leg. And i was done for the. I think that was like week. Seven or eight or somewhere in there But yeah we you know did leonard. Hearns leonard benitez. I'm forgetting kuni home. The next year it was funny. Because if you were. This was all legal. This is not admitting anything to the a. It was legal. We didn't get paid Just fallen volunteered. You've got to do a fun thing you know. It was pretty cool to be sure to fight absolute Yeah i think it was warm. I can't remember. I mean i was in a t shirt. I don't remember being cold at night. I remember kneeling. I gave up on my job as the big fight. Started like when the undercard going. you know. you're doing your job now filled in all the people there. I remember kneeling about eight feet away from jack. Nicholson that was that was my brush with greatness. Very cool can you joining us here on pushing the odds when you left. Espn you talk a little bit about freedom in wanting to have the freedom to do certain things in the press release came out for the announcement to you to join. Caesar's you talked about the ability to basically right the job description. What's that like when you're able to have that control over the content you're gonna produce well 'cause liberating for sure i mean i'm not saying i'm pushing seasons around by any. They were very willing to hear me out. What is it you wanna do. How can we do this together. And it was a very relaxed and you know just like a good conversation. But what's the best you know and the same allowing me to do other things as long as they don't conflict with you know. Obviously caesar's will be Knee only betting app. I'm gonna ever speak of in a positive way So they own me in that category but if you know if tomorrow i sell a tv show that somebody or make a commercial for somebody again. As long as it doesn't conflict you know they. They're not going to stand the way. In fact i i liked how they put it. They're like hey if you do other stuff besides the stuff you do for us. That's only good for us right if you suddenly you know have some other cool thing going. That reflects well on us. So i i like their openness and and actually makes a lot of sense. I would think what will sports betting fans see from the content. That kenny made gonna produce well. Hopefully we reach. Carry out the missing caesar's once but do it in a fun way right like they. Don't you know anybody can just read the odds chart or you know the the you know what i'm saying like just the boilerplate stuff. Hopefully i get new kind of some of the stuff.

In that market where they're competing against you know all sorts of other companies are trying to grab a piece of it. And i'm gonna try to do things that make things look good so that people are attracted to caesar's and You know by virtue of that. You know hopefully test out the up. I think this is great. Because i've talked a lot about the fact that you know picks and plays in what what i do is great. But the entertainment value that you're gonna bring is so valuable. I think because at the end of the day betting it's supposed to be entertainment. It's supposed to be fun. Insure there's a point one percent of people who are trying to professionals but the vast majority of people wanna put money down on a game to enjoy and just watch it and they were doing it. Anyway i mean at the school at unlv. You know how often the books were filled up with people coming in betting. So you've seen this up close and personal for a long time but how do you feel about the entertainment value that you're gonna bring from sports betting perspective that it's not gonna be about the.

"gentry" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"App download. Now gentry from tennessee. And we'll see you in a couple of days or a week or so. Appreciate you being here up against a break. Eight five five to four to seventy eight five. We are back with much much more listening to the paul finebaum. Show podcast. what we're back here in more of your phone calls. We have a bit a busy busy guest list so we haven't had a lot of time so eight five five two four two seven. Two eight five is the number. Let's get back to the calls and we check in with chris who is up next. Hey chris ball. How're you doing today. We are doing great appreciate it. I had a question for you You know it looks like a lot of god's or sawn and small dill's i'd say small local deals you know vo next recently saw with milos and What point will we start seeing these guy john on big contracts. I've win. Will they build to be advertised. Figure for nike under armour. Like at what point will that happen and real that then star. Really putting motivation and goss mind to say. Hey i want to build a brand for myself. So let's go to the school. That helped me build a brand and get that nike deal or that under armor deal or that donald stew. I i think what we've seen for the most part. So far is fairly small. And i know I've looked at a list of alabama auburn players couple of other ones and it's primarily social media. There's a couple of other things in there that the company is you're doing but yeah i do think you're going to. You're going to see big money deals. At some point we we have heard that the big companies are waiting there trying to trying to sort this out because this this thing did happen pretty quickly and any any big corporation does not make financial decisions overnight right that makes sense because i mean i'm just thinking like this year in college football i mean it's kind of a question mark. There's a lot of big name to left last year. And so but imagine you know what kind of deal. Trevor lawrence's of the world and the to christie you imagine no a player I mean going back a couple of years. I mean we've seen a couple of guys. Come out of nowhere and win the heisman. Johnny johnny manziel being one. And you know what happens to that superstar that the guy you've never heard of. He has a huge game on the first weekend and then becomes a major celebrity. Those are the ones you have to keep your eye on. Yeah absolutely because those guys. I mean you're talking about one. Big game can change make you can make some life changing money absolutely having a few good games and then how is that gonna affect players. Because i i mean. I've heard intelligent people. We just heard one. We've heard others earlier who have completely different views on this. And i think. I think the sec media days is going to be a four day event. On n i l. I think you're going to get coaches opining now. Remember these coaches may not be telling you what they really think. Because i don't think the coach can get up there and can afford to come out and be critical event. I l there's too much on the line right now. There's a players right now with social media. I mean they are all over the place. I just saw a player tweet. Something about a particular schools view of of marijuana and a player ended up leaving school. Recently i'm not going to get too deep into the weeds here pretty well known player and we talked about it and i'm assuming it had something to do with the drug policy and then another player just tweeted out If you smoke weed you don't need to be going to this particular school Now think about that. I mean this is not nineteen sixty five where you go to jail if you get caught with marijuana and by the way the got the tweet was immediately taken down. But that's that's not the point. I it's a it's a serious situation and you're going to see a lot of Conversation on on that front. So keep your eyes on this story. Let's let's check in with joe who was up next. Hey joe good afternoon. Joe you there. Well i don't hear joe. Maybe we'll try that in a minute. Let me try another call. How about bubba bubba. You're on the air go right ahead. Hello mr fane bomb said You know. I think that this is This an i. L. is just a reflection of the Society we live in where everyone is looking for something for nothing and it feels entitled to it. Now i'm not saying them boys that play. Football didn't shouldn't earn a little bit more money and have a little bit better life but you know the solution to that may be what the fellow down in miami did when he gave everybody on the varsity football team. Five hundred dollars. I think that an equitable way to to do this would be the schools to set up an amount that they're going to give their football players or their athletes A stipend for in everybody gets the same stipend and that would make imitable. Everybody and i. I understand where you're coming from but every player gets a stipend as it is. It's called the cost of attendance at couple of thousand dollars so that's already in the wash now. Universities don't have the don't have the ability to to make a unilateral decision here. These are this these laws the one in alabama where you with Involved in deals with the individual not the school so it's about the individuals and i know i'm just giving you the the by law. I'm not. I'm not saying. I agree because your point is a good one but you know that that that that that horses out of the barn already well. I just think that you know everybody's looking for a way to get something for nothing that they don't have now whether they're entitled to it or not. Well let me ask you a question though if you're if you're eighteen years old and you have a chance to make a couple of thousand dollars should you not take advantage of it in a heartbeat but does does one player who works his sandy l. Just as hard as another player would it. You know i. I worked for a big company. Somebody wants told me you're paid what they think you're worth nothing else really matters. Don't apologize for. Don't complain about it and in this case it's about whatever somebody wants to pay somebody else it's not about the team and therein lies the problem. According to many people. How about joe. Who was up next. Let's try you again. Joe yeah we hear you now. Yeah i i guess you had on earlier name and keep keep done. Yeah he's a. I mean he was making a lot of sets on what he said. Just like that What was his name terrance. The other parents more down to be like harbingers of bad news. You know you mentioned during the conversation. You mentioned nick sabin during the conversation right and he you you brought it up. Not him right. I mean that you know. I think You know saving is getting. You know getting on up there in age. And i think he's gonna take much for sabre into the set off and just walk out of there in a fit of rage. You know i agree. I mean listen. Nobody's adapted more to change in college athletics in the last twenty years in nick sabin. But this is different. This goes against everything All of his principles and he'll say the right thing because he he knows he's speaking to future recruits but how he deals with it as another story behind closed doors. I mean does he own a car dealership or something yes yes mercedes' eight probably get clearest to advertise for his car dealership right..

Is this phrase intelligent luxury we. We're taking the latin origin of intelligence into lego to try and understand what luxuries about. I think when you can do that when you question what for your clients especially when the context off our clients has changed so i recall when we opened back in the nineties. The people who had come to us were largely the landed gentry that inherited that wealth. Living in foams of big states though. Jerry have access to fresh air. Fresh foods face privacy and then that changed you have the internet revolution. You had the emergence of the brakes. Brazil russia india china reaganism factories. Over the last forty years. The successful have become urban. If you look at the sunday times rich list mighty percents all self-made oven longer. The landed gentry and so what. The successful took Granted in the pause is now wrapped that bit of fresh air is a scarcity in beijing closed schools for three or four hour weeks of the year. It's the same.

But that's essentially what people want and we find the nowadays most of our clients a spending more money on experiences than products.

This you know being able to get attention in the program but again if you're gonna if you're gonna get those players that you're gonna cruise bill the football program you have to be invested in it and you have to be willing to commit the time to it and i'm not saying that any george isn't it i don't think he he's a pretty sharp guy and i think he would have thought through everything before he. He followed through with this. But i think in any situation all when you're looking at head coach of a college football program. It's a tough thing to do. If you've never been a coach before. And i think in most cases is with that ludicrous. It doesn't just because it's eddie. George in its nashville. And it's such a fit here and it's going to generate so much interest that it made sense for tennessee state to do it and see what happens but let me let me ask you as a columnist at the largest newspaper i think in the whole state and you mentioned national and you know spring right now this is an outlier but in a couple of months everything will be back on. The normal clock in tennessee state will be playing at the same time as on the same weekend. Tennessee and in alabama and the titans and at some point in the fall of the predator. Start and i've only pass through national but it seems like most of the attention between the predators and the titans. There's really not much left to go around I mean i agree. I i think that You also have an mls soccer team that'll break going into possibly the postseason about that time and that all kinda hit at once Last fall. I think You know i had a question followed the conversation. I was having earlier today. Wonder who's going to sell more tickets this fall now for their football season vanderbilt or tennessee. State there with the first year coach. They've been struggling a lot lately. The fact that that even comes up as a win for tennessee state. And i think with any george their their games are gonna start becoming a lot more of a thing to do then they they have been. I think that that's there's no question about that But as you know you've been in nashville. I mean on saturdays. The fall stay in natural dislike in knoxville. It's about the it's about. The team wearing orange usually jittery limit. Let me take you know. Hopefully it won't be that that would be bad. News for for the for the tennessee. Hiber lending let let me chisel down on what you just got through saying. We had kansas story. Leon here about two weeks ago. She announced the three hundred million dollars. Infusion and you can't help it admire her and and give credit to that university and the president and chancellor trying to do something different but once you step away from it. What does that three hundred dollars. Three hundred million dollars really mean to a program that is diminished by. Its losing and everything else around you know i. I tend to agree with you. But on that note they had to do something The facilities at vanderbilt had fallen so far behind the rest of the league. Here in the last ten years There's really been an arms race at thirteen fourteen. Sec schools here when it comes to football if you see everything that everybody's done across the league except vanderbilt. They kept kicking the can down the road and they still have to a degree. They're not like they're not building a new football stadium but they are doing much needed renovations to the existing one they're addressing their football facility. They're addressing their basketball facility. They're they're doing things that quite honestly they should have done years ago. And what has changed with candidate story lee and also they new chancellor who came in last summer i named daniel beer meyer. Who is made a sincere commitment to athletics that people in his physician in the past. I think were reluctant to do. And you promised this. The former athletes who've been promising this fan for for a number of months now and that rollout was their way of saying. No no. this really is happening so to me. i think they'll be a tangible impact for sure. They needed help just in terms of facilities but i think that particular issue was more symbolic than it was anything at getting his own people on board with. What's the fact that you know. Hey vanderbilt cares about this stuff too. And i think that's really what that meant but it's just one more conversation to have to deal with when we get to the fall with everything we've already mentioned now. Eighty george a to the to the rescue gentry for that conversation very very important very interesting and we will talk to you. Hopefully very soon. Yeah you bet take care for great stuff and and jen gentry makes a really good point you have one more person to the national scene and and what does it really mean to vanderbilt. Because there's only so much attention and so much oxygen for sports we will take a break mortem more of your phone calls right ahead at eight five five two four two seven two eight five listening to the paul finebaum show podcast on a monday afternoon and mitch is up next.

The story coming out of the tennessee state about george and who better to talk to than anyone who lives in the state of tennessee gentry s.'s. Joining us to columnists from the tennessee and and gentry good afternoon. And i'm i there's so many questions here about you know. Are we seeing new trends here in college. Athletics juwan howard. Now nowadays george bush first of all just the news of this we. We all know how popular he is in that area with his days. At the titans. So what do you make out of it. yeah. I mean no question. I think you know the obvious. Comparison was dion sanders at jackson state and Dion said today that he did speak to eddie Before he made that decision. So i you know obviously some similarity there. I think we're this is different though as you mentioned. Is eddie's following in in the city of nashville. He has a an extremely strong brand here. Mostly as a result of of the titans and everything he's continued to To do around them. I mean even before home games last year. Paul you would have. Eddie did the motivational message. That they showed on the big screen for fans and players before each game. Always kind of done things like that. The surprising this is. He's never really.

"That was always as impressed with him. As i was anybody. So there's a case to be made for for a program in indiana are are even just another high major program to want to take a chance on rick pitino. You know what you're going to get. He's only been at iona for a year and they are the nine seed in their conference tournament. Out of eleven teams and coat win the thing. They went four games in a row. They've had four. Ish stoppages the season because cova in the man still wentz and he hasn't been the tournament. And i think it's a stretch to think they're going to have a whole lot to to challenge alabama but if you're alabama. You probably rather be playing a coach rick pitino to start the term gentry i. There's too many names even mentioned But they're all pretty well known in in relation to ncwa issues and their current jobs but is the standards so low in college basketball. The people people really don't even care anymore as long as you get somebody in there that can win. Let's say you this. I remember being on your show of years ago when things were heating up quickly around. We'll wait and he had been suspended. And at the time we kind of went back and forth on on whether or not we thought he was going to remain the coach at lsu. And i i thought at the time that there was a good chance he would because he wins. I mean that's obviously how things work. If you have a coach that is winter. The school will do everything they can to support that coach to fight for that coach and keep him around. And you've seen it with will wade. You've seen it with some other coaches in group. Pearl auburn is a guy who got a second chance because of how good a coach he has and then you see the flip side of it with a situation like jeremy. Pruitt the football coach at tennessee. You know. I mean he the school's not going to support you quite so much when you're not winning so rick pitino had lulu. I think he saw a little bit of both of that. I think they did support through the one. Nca case over the the sex parties luther crews and then when you had the fbi thing on top of that. I think that was that was too much at that point capital last straw and they had to clean house but louisville really did try to keep him Years because you you just don't get rid of a hall of fame coach like that. It's he's too valuable to successful. Yeah i don't know you tell me you you worked in in the state of kentucky. What made patino happier today. The fact that he's in the ncaa tournament or the duke and kentucky art and isn't either don. I knew he was gonna. Yeah i mean you have a situation where the entire tournament is in the state of indiana and which right by kentucky and kentucky is basically being represented by moorhead state The state of kentucky is. You didn't get louisville kentucky. In rick stanford's western kentucky team got closing lost in their conference championship game. So it it is an interesting dynamic to think that kentucky and louisville both don't get in the tournament and rick pitino does out of nowhere. Hi there this is julie..

"There's not much to say. Thanks for the call. We're up against break much more to come right. After the and listening to the paul finebaum show podcast closely. Watches the bama game against aiono owner. Yeah we know that von no coach wants but what about rick pitino. He's now the coach. Rick pitino is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the nc double a. tournament. Our next guest has written about patino for many many years. Gentry joins us from tennessee and gentry. Thanks for being here. And i thought rick pitino had been buried in in it was long gone and here. It is back in the ncaa tournament. What's going on here. I mean no question. I haven't given you know given how nasty the end west for rick pitino had even at that time. He said he didn't think he would get another coaching opportunity. At least not in college. He tried to go to the nba. He tried some college jobs. It just wasn't happening for him. He goes in coaches in. The opportunity comes opening. I take a chance on a guy who you know. The the situation louisville with the fbi investigation hasn't been resolved yet from an ncaa standpoint. So this is a coach. You still could conceivably face sanctions over result as a result of that. But you're seeing the the reason why you take on that baggage there in the ncaa tournament. They're playing alabama in the first round and we're talking about owner right now looking past this game eh. Because potato i he he's he's one he's one the first week and second week of march he and patrick ewing. But you think some other school and there's a there's another major opening today Indiana there will be other openings all week long do you think somebody else will will gamble on him or is the bar still too high to introduce rick pitino at your press conference outside of a small school. That really didn't care what the rest of the media thought. Great question i. That was my first thought. When i see. Indiana is firing. Archie miller as well rick pitino. He's from that area was about two hours away from bloomington. You have to believe. He's only the eight and he point in a press conference and self this weekend of i feel forty eight and you know. I think there's a message in that he's sending people like okay if you wanna if you wanna give me a call. I'm gonna listen. You know. look for everything you want to see about rick pitino and there's been scandals over the years and and all these things the man could coach and and no one has ever really argued otherwise. I've been around a lot of basketball coaches in my career. Some very very good ones. And i'm not sure anywhere better than rick pitino when you saw him. During the forty minutes of a game the decisions he made the adjustments. You make the what he would do during time outs. That was always as impressed with him. As i was anybody. So there's a case to be made for for a program in indiana are are even just another high major program to want to take.

"The legal theory of assuming the risks usually ask if the titans injury and action that led to it would have been anticipated by a reasonably cruden. Person aka would a reasonably prudent tennessee.

Two thousand in contrast the acc has won ten. The big east has won. Four in the sec has won three but it looks like they're the strongest conference this year I'd like to know the over and under You know on vegas or the bad guys you know if the big ten school will not win the ncaa tournament for the first time in twenty years but something I'm a skeptic Big time at heart. You may remember me but the bottom line is i noticed that Obviously the tournament is being played in the state of indiana. Indiana has got five venues to the venues are big ten home courts. Purdue and indiana university and out of the nine big ten schools that are playing. They picked their venues The nine big ten schools that are playing in the opening games. Five of them are plan on either. Produce or indiana versus home court. I've played a lot of hoops High school Point guard Never got much Intramuros carolina excetera. But i do know. Each floor is different. And i do know that each room is is tighter than some other rims and background in. All gyms are all a little bit different for desk perception. I find it. I want to keep an eye on if you will How many big ten schools play on indiana's home court or produce homecourt. You're not never gonna convince me that. Their familiarity with those gyms is not going to add a little bit to them. And when you got you know all the big. The sea is based in indianapolis and they've got a lot of big ten graduates working for the ncaa new. Let me say this cavern. I have not gone deep into the we're everyone is playing but i'm sure they have considered that. I hope they have. I'll i'll double check. But i'll have our student resource set overnight as he prepares for for moot court.

Can you file a lawsuit if the COVID vaccine causes you harm?
"Take a moment and slowdown here. Challenging the constitutionality of a vaccine mandate is one type of legal action suing over an injury from a vaccine or an adverse effect is another type of legal action related but not the same a constitutional claim normally with a bodily injury. Person would bring a claim for damages in state court vaccine. Injuries are rare. But they do happen. The centers for disease control and prevention issue warnings about vaccines. I talked with a half dozen doctors for this story. Here is one of them. Talking about the first rotavirus vaccine to hit the market when i was in residency The rotavirus vaccine came out um which is a a virus that causes diarrhea and kids and after they released it they found that there were very small percentage of kids. Were getting Necrotizing necrotizing client s so their was getting not getting enough blood supply because of various stuff but they found it out within a very short period of time and so the vaccine was removed from the market. Gone another dr paul off. It is director of the vaccine education center at children's hospital of philadelphia. He co invented different. Rotavirus vaccine one. That's in use today. His motivation to make vaccine goes back to his childhood. He had club feet when he got an operation. Well he will always remember what he saw a polio ward. And i remember those children and traction those children in our lungs. I think it certainly drove me to pediatrics. And it drove me to child. Advocacy's bashes about childhood that become air drives as adults covid. Nineteen is a devastating virus. That is especially serious threat for a certain segment of the population. The elderly so far the covid nineteen vaccine appears to be effective vaccine of saved their lives and for the most part of saved our lives safely for the most part. Vaccines are safe but not for all vaccines help. One group of vulnerable people but could possibly harm another vulnerable group. Recent news reports have revealed that some people are reluctant to get the covid nineteen vaccines because of potential adverse reactions. A few moments ago we introduced vaccine lawyer rene gentry today. She is the director of the vaccine injury litigation clinic. She identifies some kinds of injuries. Vaccines can cause. It has everything from a nfl access to encephalopathy in death. The majority of the injuries that we see today are the shoulder injury. related vaccine administration and gambari syndrome following the flu shot. But it runs the gamut. We see immunological or injuries. We see neurological injuries occasionally cardiovascular injuries and things like that gentry represents people who have suffered an adverse effect. She says as soon as people hear that they automatically characterize her and her clients or rather mischaracterize. Once you save vaccine injury automatically characterized as anti vaccine people. Say that all the time your client back to my all. My clients got vaccinated. They're not anti backs. i like. They got back. Stated i'm on antibac- i've been vaccinated mary. You just explained that lawsuits for bodily injuries. Normally take place in state court but vaccine. Injuries are not treated that way. An individual with a vaccine injury cannot sue. The drug company for damages. Drug companies are immune from such lawsuits. You're not allowed to sue a pharmaceutical company for a vaccine injury for covid vaccine instead. Those claims use a different process. An injured person must go through the v. I c. p. the vaccine injury compensation program gentry says vaccine court as it sometimes called came about in the nineteen eighties after some children develop seizures because of the dtp shot it requires filing a petition with the united states court of federal claims. It's an actual court an actual court setting. You have a right to counsel you have the right to appeal your other evidence and things like that. If the person proves a vaccine injury they receive no fault. Compensation pay the claim without admitting blames caps on pain and suffering. And things like that. But it's full medical care for the future of past etc but only some vaccines are covered under the v. Icp covid nineteen vaccine is not one of them again gentry. The covid vaccine is considered a countermeasure and by the prep act that was established by congress in the early two thousands. She said countermeasure countermeasures program is a different plan. It limits legal liability for a product device. The government puts in place during a public health crisis. The co vaccine was put in that program instead of the vaccine program. is a much worse program. There's no right to counsel. There's no right of appeal. it's not a legal process. It's a one year statute of limitations. Is you know there's no pain and suffering. It's it's it's a terrible program. In other words. If mandates come down and someone suffers an adverse effect that person has little legal recourse if any and with the in nineteen vaccine. There are still a lot of unknowns. That has another component to mandates with so many question marks. Is there enough information. Does it offer lifelong immunity or will it be a seasonal vaccine. Will the vaccine against mutations of this virus are there long term effects of the vaccine. Who knows we're in a real time epidemiological. Study
Louisville police move to fire 2 officers involved in Breonna Taylor raid

He says these officers were wrong and should be taken off the force. They skipped over a lot of protocols. And we don't need that now. If other charges criminal charges come up, That would be great, but you can't walk him out until you have taken that first step. Like many others, the grand jury is keen to see what the ongoing federal investigation into the incident produces. The FBI's Louisville Field office has been looking into the shooting since May.

"Up next we meet one of ireland's finance jeff's kp mcmahon based in galway the michelin starred chefs. Culinary accomplishments include any restaurant and anne robotic cookery school as well as his. Release the irish cookbook. One of the most beautiful cookbook releases off. Twenty twenty till's the story of irish feud and how it has evolved over thousands of years showcasing the richness and variety of food from this green islands with its five hundred authentic recipes. The author jp mcmahon jones me in the studio back in march to discuss the book on how irish food is about so much more than just lamb stew and potatoes as was initially. It was a bit apprehensive because there are many many irish food cookbooks in the twentieth century. But i suppose. I found that a lot of them had been written for an irish audience or perhaps people travelling to ireland. It was important for me to try and give an international dimension and was one of the reasons why publishing with fight on made a difference because they have a global reach and it was in order to try and change the perception of irish food. I think also because we have a restaurant called a near which is will mission star restaurant. We've had it for ten years and we've been investigating irish food for ten years and i felt a lot of the things that we've been doing over. Those ten years weren't in cookbooks. And some of them are very old things like using seaweed using wild food in different ways. And i wanted i suppose that a record of that and that was the start i think the initial for doing it was a had traveled a lot to different places and taking part in chef events and i realized that are affected that we had really good produce in ireland. I'm we just weren't singing about it now. I took part in events in mexico in america and canada in europe and we were always celebrating the cuisine of a particular area. And as why are we doing this. And why aren't we kind of like saying well. We have really good food where shellfish or or whatever so. They were kind of the driving forces behind the book. Now what do you think. Ireland has been so modest about its food on its culinary legacy heritage. I think there's a certain humbleness modesty to irish people and they're probably not the best people at selling themselves like i think we're frustrated capitalists and we want to do things but at the same time we don't want to come across as being bombastic. I think that's worn element. I think the second element is the famine and the subsequent diaz before that happens. I think that impacted irish food particularly of the twentieth century and on the one hand you had people that did not have that much access to food in art and even though there was a lot of food and then the second part you had people who did have access that is food. Who were i think. Predominantly from the anglo-irish irish element and some has be would call the west brits so the people who would be associated with england and these people who had food. I think we're not considered to be irish often. This kind of tension between the tradition that it goes all the way back at least a thousand years between people on the island and people who have food and people don't have food on who we consider irish what we consider irishness tried to take a very broad perspective on it. And so when you go into the archives of the recipe books that you find are from landed gentry anglo-irish aristocracy mostly on. I think when became independent in nineteen twenty two. We kind push that assignment. But that's not really irish. You talk about going to the archives of research did you actually conducts to gather all these five hundred recipes. You having this book. Some of it was looking at best. Baseball's cookbooks from the nineteenth to twentieth century and looking through tried to pick recipes that i thought represented ireland in that respect i found stuff like say pollen is a river fish that is almost forgotten and offend a wonderful pollen recipe. I think in the nineteen seven book and interest. Enough are fishmonger had just been talking about pollen and nobody easing it and it all goes to europe and his fish from nee in northern ireland. That was one thing. I think looking ass older manuscripts was wonderful thing. Because i love history as well and looking at how people wrote recipes and how they i suppose. There was a certain assumption in recipes that the person who was reading new it already so the method was very very scant and often the recipe books were household management books. That would be passed down from mother to a daughter to a granddaughter so people could be able to cook the recipes. Were very interesting. A lot of pickles. Stuff a lot of preserve stuff because there was no frigid. So a lot of salting like i suppose. There's almost like how to live because if you couldn't do these things then you in trouble. Did you come across many recipes that had been practically forgotten already. Yeah like one or two some that we probably would not eat now. One was pickled herring. Which i thought was really interesting because i did a story and friend of mine because i thought didn't they meant herring and she was like no. That's terron lake orion and i was like wow because there's one heron galway and flies up and down and if anyone was to pick them i be in trouble but the interesting thing was that it reminded me of like an s quebec spanish dish where they cook fish or chicken and they covered in vinegar and wine solution and essentially that was the recipe and the recipe started off was like chopped the heads off one hundred hereon got and viscera them. That was the start of the recipe. And i was like wow. That's already a big mess. Some of the other things that are still useful. I think i put it in was quincy and quincy eric. Something that are not native to ireland but there was a lot in the seventeenth and eighteenth century that would preserve a lot of quences and so preserved. Quincy was what i would call mark cross again and again and again and also recipes would almonds. The irish were obsessed with amines. Which again is one of those interesting things to think about because again. Do not come from ireland.
How Will Stan Van Gundy Fit With the Pelicans?
"Was a few weeks ago in the ringer NBA show that at the very tail end of the show I recall you saying. Keep an eye out for Stan van Gundy and New Orleans and since we last spoke That came to fruition Stan Van Gundy was hired by David Griffin and the New Orleans Pelicans I think when this all started with the pelicans ouster of Alvin gentry. Through the. Face Tyler had a former relationship with David. Griffin, we talk about my Tony possibly because he had a former relationship via the Phoenix Suns with David Griffin but they do land on Stan van, Gundy as their next head coach when you saw that news come across the wire, would you think great I'm happy I think he could bring some accountability to the team in terms of how much they need it on the defensive end of the floor they were horrific. On defense this season in San Andy. Of course, infamously famously I'm not sure once said build an effing wall and that the Pelicans need to do and I look forward to see what he can do now that he's back in the NBA but by the way like he failed in Detroit because he was coach. Angie 'em now he's just a coach right and he was always a good coach. He was good basketball coach and it was one of those cautionary tales of. It is two different skill sets number one it also in many cases can be two different motivations right if I am if I am the general manager and the coach now let's say I make a poor signing or a poor usage of money will sometimes I may want to use that guy to prove that I was right about this guy right and I know that you Still get into that with with a front offices and coaches anyway, right in in everybody wants to be responsible everybody wants to be right about the move they made. But when you then you're not doing the scouting of every other team on a regular basis, I know you have scouts you're certainly not doing that with college, but it's just a very hard job to do twofold and. Another cautionary tale of taking that over I mean everybody wants that power but I think we've seen two of these guys. Now fact three of these guys. Now, all of which I think you would say were subpar to very below average in that role but. We respect them as guys that are on the sidelines as basketball coaches. That is their expertise in that is doc rivers who took on that role Tom Thibodeau who took on that role and Stan Van Gundy who took on that role and yet got hired as coaches though it didn't go well at their last stops. I mean doc better than the other two but we thought. Hires because these guys are good basketball coaches who were miscast trying to run everything for sure absolutely and ultimately it's another good opportunity for him when New Orleans area there even though they have Zion, they have ingram granted these a restricted free agent. He'll likely back matched any offer sheet or whatever This is still sort of A. Team right now that can go in many different directions depending on how David Griffin wants to build it out and I look forward to seeing the ways in which Van Gundy, Utilize Zion and the ways in which he tries to get him going off because remember you know before all the three point shooting, we've seen the last ten years or so that has. Exploded with the warriors and the rockets and all these teams shooting lot of threes, the magic, Dwight Howard at center and four shooters around him in the late two thousands with anti head coach and they went to a finals. We're going to be lost to Kobe and the Lakers The had some good run they some really strong teams and in with Williamson. With the New Orleans Pelicans, I know they want to add another they don't want to go like all small Wall. With Zion at the five all the time it's it's just went to work but I, think van Gundy's pasts and what he could do now with this roster, it's kind of exciting to think about the possibilities with the different ways in which they can use ion but most importantly though and again, this is like with all the coaching hires we talk about I am more interested in the personnel changes who they draft, who do they try to trade for? Who Do they try to sign I am WHO's coaching the team, but you know I'm excited to see if they're able to get. Zion, going and creative ways that they weren't able to do as much during the season despite his success he posted up a lot man I. WanNa see some more pick and roll with Zion I wanNA see some more creativity with him, handling the ball and running pick and roll, and that will largely come from other personnel changes that come to the roster that allow that to happen. But Hey, man SVG had success with some different types of teams in the past and I look forward to seeing what he can do here with him, and that team has a good roster they under performed badly. Made sometimes teams underperformed because you look at their roster and you go man aol have the goods like that team underperformed I. Think so too. I think of course it I mean look I mean Lonzo I think Lonzo hit one shot in the bubble well, even though they're young that defense was bad even though they had good individual defenders, they've jrue holiday one of the best perimeter guard defenders, Ingraham and Lonzo. They were good defenders of the Lakers. They were the last two years. They were good. They were not good defenders last season with New Orleans. And Zion I, mean he was horrific. He was so bad on defense. It was it was really sad to watch. This is the guy who is blocking three point shots closing out from the opposite side of the paint at Duke just a year prior, which is why people wonder how much of it was fatigue coming back but season how much of it was the injury limiting him how much of it was effort I? Don't know I don't know what it was but regardless. He stunk on defense, and all of this needs to change next season for this team to be anything that have any chance of actually getting into the playoffs it can't be all
New Louisville Police Chief Takes The Helm During Tense Time In The City
"See its third police chief take office since the police killing of Briana Taylor in March. Yeah, that Gentry will serve on an interim basis and will be the first black woman to lead the department. She previously served as a deputy police chief with the force before retiring in 2014. Gentry takes on the helm during a tense time in the city. There's been protests over Taylor's death for months, followed by anger over the lack of charges for her killing. And now a delay in the release of grand jury recordings, which her family and others have demanded. Chief Gentry joins me now Welcome to all things considered. Thank you for having me Well, let's start with the killing of Rianna Taylor. There's been a lot of criticism about the actions of the officers involved at night to remind listeners. Briana was asleep with her boyfriend when police arrived, and most witnesses say police did not identify themselves. Taylor's boyfriend says he shot towards the door and self defense thinking the police were intruders. Taylor was shot and killed after police opened fire. How do you characterize the police activity that led to Brianna's death? Well, that is the part that we're looking at. Now. Take over tomorrow. I've had just 1 ft briefing yesterday. So everything I know about the Briana Taylor case really is just as a citizen getting information from media. I am too anxiously awaiting to see what the G presented because what's important to me is that the proper scope of the investigation was done. People want to know from start to finish what happened in that case, and I certainly want to know that I think the public and the family deserves that as well. And the officers who are out there on the front line. How do you view your role In this moment? You've been in law enforcement for a very long time, and you've decided to step in At this pivotal point in history after being in retirement, right. I gave up a whole lot of comfort because I could see a lot of people both invited agency and out here protesting that really were uncomfortable with the way things were happening. And so I feel like I was best suited to stand in the gap. I know the agency. I know the city. I know a lot of the inequities that have taken place across the city, and so I can come in here and make sure that we create better conditions for people. So that they don't feel left out. And they don't feel angry all the time and disenfranchise because I know how that feels to be a black woman that have lived in various parts of the city over the course of my 15 year life. I'm curious that the department come to you, or did you step up? I really had more community people coming to me and some police officers, But I had a lot of leaders across the community that came to me is that you've met. I believe you're the person for this time, But the more and more that I thought about it and, you know, I'm a Christian person will believe in prayer and afraid about it, And I thought about the sacrifice of some of my co workers over the years. Other black women across the city And so I said, I know the systems and I will come in here, and I believe that even for a short time I compared us in a direction that is gonna make Louisville better place. Black Americans make up about one quarter of Louisville's population, but only about 10% of the department officers are black. What's the disconnect? I think a lot of it is pushed back again. The community. I mean, if you look at any of the videos from some of the protests and some of the way that the black offices were portrayed as traders, you know a lot of the things that happened in the media and also happen on the streets every day really make it a very, very tough sale for African American officers. One of the officers involved in the shooting. John Mattingly sent a letter to his colleagues calling some protesters thugs and saying criminals were being canonized. How widely do you think his views are our shared in the department? You know, I still wholeheartedly believe in the overwhelming majority of the police officers here. There is a lack of discipline. You know, I think we had several commanders kind of getting on. Social media and different things and putting those comments out that are very disheartening, inappropriate and they send the wrong message to the officers are on the front line, but we have to deal with that lack of discipline at the top. You have spent 20 years with the department, including several is deputy police chief. You heard from your community who said they wanted to see you in this role. For people who feel like the department hasn't done enough to reform. What is the case for putting you in charge? You know, the reforms are going to take a life of its own. But I will tell you this. I'm not a fan of taking a lot of tools off the table because the reality is it moves deadly forth up, which is supposed to be the overarching goal that we're trying to prevent. So I think the important thing is to focus on recruitment to make sure we have the right person because the right pool in the wrong hands is always going to be a bad idea. So if we get the right men and women in here, then the schools are going to be used appropriately. That's Yvette Gentry, who starts his interim police chief of Louisville, Kentucky. Tomorrow, Iraqi leaders say Secretary of State
The Mystery of Woodchester Mansion
"People have lived in the area of Gloucestershire share. Now known as would chester park since the Romans invaded Britannia but the site of the Winchester Mansion itself began as a hunting lodge in the middle of a heavily wooded deer park. The ducie family purchased the Land Law in Sixteen thirty one renovating it into a Georgian. House called Spring Park. The ducey's kept the house in a near constant state of renovation added several landscaping features to the sprawling four thousand Acre valley including a group of art official lakes in eighteen forty. The second earl of Ducie inherited the property from his recently deceased father. The Legend of what happened that fateful year would be the first indication that something wasn't quite right at the would chester estate. It's no wonder that rumors of full body apparitions, disembodied voices, and the strange smell of extinguish candles persist. Not when the initial occupancy of the mansion turned out to be so very, very strange. Henry was grateful that his father and past he would never say so loud but he could not be happier. He had long toiled in the shadows of Thomas Reynolds Morton look first earl of Ducie. While the reward of inherited title was a nice reward for his time. It wasn't enough Thomas expected a lot out of him henry heated the permanence near the Thomas War around his son the constant lack of approval had driven Henry to dark thoughts. It was unfair that someone who had so much could feel as though they were nothing. He'd contemplated killing his own father regularly. It wished for his father's death a thousand times. But wishes weren't enough. At night he trump of sneaking into his father's room and crushing his windpipe Thomas, Cole ties would stare back at him in defiance but Henry would only press harder. He would steal every ounce of paint from his father that he could. He would revel in at even. This was the retribution he deserved. But by the time, he finally summoned the courage to act on his feelings fate had intervened. His father was dead and Henry would be able to keep his soul free at sin. He should have been overjoyed, but there was a part of him. That was disappointed. Henry had wanted to watch the life leave is father's is. Instead, S. he stood in the church on that summer morning he saw the corpse of an older man that felt nothing like his father. This husk of a person wasn't even the slightest bit intimidating. He was justice Shell Serene still. No fire behind the size no disapproving sneer. To the best of his knowledge Thomas Reynolds, Morton had never looked serene is life. Death was as the saying goes the great equalizer Henry didn't WanNA. Feel equal to his father he wanted to feel better that him. His shock at being robbed of the chance to end his father's life was eventually swallowed by his own greed. He held the title and the purse strings that once belonged to Thomas. The legacy had been passed onto him and he could do whatever he wanted with that power. His first act of filial disobedience was going to be a party. He would holden enchanted forest themed masquerade at his father's last real estate acquisition but converted Hunting Lodge in Winchester Park. It was still under construction, but the ballroom was mostly finished and the incomplete designed would really add to the atmosphere. Henry woke with a sense of clear purpose on the day of the party even though he held the title for weeks, this would be his entrance into high society as an earl. The people would give him the respect they never gave his father. A. Played softly as Henry mingled with his guests, he welcomed as many people as he could bobbing out of conversations whenever he grew tired of the subject matter. Most of these guests were more his father's friends than his. He despised them, but he couldn't resist the chance to hold his new title and the imminent chaos heads. He outranked nearly all of them now. Though the event was a masquerade few visit guests had been particularly inventive. There was fun and trying to guess who everyone was. Something always gave them away the gate, the bone structure, the laugh. There were at least four uninspiring looking deer and far too many rakish second sons had decided to come as wolves. But there was one person Henry didn't know. A strange masked man was weaving his way through the crowd. He had never introduced himself and his body language was unfamiliar. Henry tried to get closer, but he struggled to even get a clear view of the masked man. The pushed through the of gentry ignoring their complaints. Finally. When the crowd parted they met. The mysterious man was standing still gazing out one of the large glazed windows to the forest behind. And redrew closer and put one gloved hand on the man's shelter. The did not turn around.

"gentry" Discussed on The Free Agents
"They were uninspiring in the bubble they were uninspiring I thought most of the season you know it certainly helped when Zairean came back but it's been the story for the Pelicans for the past five seasons, everybody talks up their talent and the fact that they could be darkhorse playoff contender and they fall a little bit short. Yeah they absolutely were not inspiring in the bubble. What sober especially defensively, they just looked like they didn't care and. I'm always want to support coaches and say, Hey, it's on the players. It's on the players, what was the coach supposed to but really when guys just aren't moving on defense, they've had the nineteenth best defense, the twenty two teams down there, and we're willing to give up bucket after bucket after bucket just not rotating. He didn't motivate them at all really They weren't buying it to no one was running through a wall for Dave for I'm sorry maybe David Griffin I don't know. But now for Alvin Gentry and five seasons is longer than coaches generally get and I understand. Williamson factor it was. A bit of a ranch into things but at the same time. That's that's the dish she has been served as coach. Alvin gentry had had sort of involve him and get the guys to rally around somebody WHO's coming in and out of the lineup and it wasn't working. So it makes sense that David Griffin would move on whether they finished five and three or whether they finished two and six in the bubble and. That's it. It's five years it was was a decent amount of time. He also I mean this happens to coaches. So it's like don't cry for Gentry, but there was a ton of injuries over those five years a ton of turnover over those five years I think in that breakdown from Woche Gentry, Gentry was forced to use a combined one, hundred forty starting lineups in five seasons. which is the most over the last five years by the in eleven more than the next closest team taught at is a time. So it was always somebody banged up and they had to go out and now he's forced to try and find someone else's to plug in there. So that sucks but. All of that said I'm with you guys I mean. The the promising the are a promising young team and they should have been better down there in the bubble. It should have been better even in the regular season than they play for their playoff lives down in the Bible and it was inspiring. Yeah. That was the. The real under an inspiring part for my couch was that they didn't seem to be really. Just, enter that basketball and yet eight games. You know you look at the Blazers in what they were and maybe it's Leadership on the floor, but I don't know I think if there was one guy running through the wall, it was Jj redick trying to prolong his playoff streak but he looked like he was going after it but the rest of the guys was just Ingram was pretty new is. It was great offensively younger by Ingram's Outta very good season. I think generally just gentry zip some credit for that for getting him to really. Fulfill, a lot of his potential that he the we sort of soaring alive. He wasn't able to really break out of it. So he does some credit for that. But sure. So who's going to coach the team then is it going to be Lou I mean it's got obviously a relationship with David Griffin. He's sort of at the top of the leaderboard I think for the PELICANS. Your Jim Boylan is available. Money. On Jim Boylan knock it. I don't know you're worried about I on conditioning. What about? Practices and push ups all day you guys going to be even more jacked. Good point right really accurate Jim. Just get, he's going to release a new DVD workout series. The Jack Would Jim Boyle though it's a good time to be a coach viable because there's the nets job that is probably going to go to save. Tyler Jason Kidd and They. Got Kevin. Durant. Jacques von. He's GonNa keep that job. He may five data, but he he's not a good job. I guess so far And then you're going to get zoe on an ingram down there in New Orleans there's some pretty interesting opportunities out there. which person thinks the right fit I think Lou would be a good fit for the for the next job myself I. Think it's a little a little tougher with that that one down in New Orleans because you've got the young guys that you have to monitor when you're going into a situation ready, that is not going to be super easy there in Brooklyn getting them to Mesh together. But at least you got the proven track record day rather than having to try to bring it out of the younger guys whoever? which will be the job for whoever takes over in, new? Orleans? I just got an email I. Guess it was a couple I. Guess it was yesterday I got this email I'm sure some of you did to this weird some sort of change I get like, Hey, these odds may be of interest to you and. It was the breakdown for all these coaches Jacques. Von Lead the favorite to be the Nets full-time head coach Lou right behind him. Then Mark Jackson three to one odds. Bulls fulltime head coach trae want to guess who's the leader in a according to this bed online what do you got? Adrian Griffin newly he's second Kenny's third lose fourth. It's a name that's never been a head coach officially league, but he's been a longtime assistant. The. Former. Mayor DOCO email doke. That's a yeah. He's the favourite right now for the bowls and then coach Lou for the Pelicans two to one, and then kid right there behind him. So a lot of the same names are on all these lists but you also have. Six to one chance for the next bulls. Head coach to be Michael Jordan so. Launch. Going on that and consider that one a little bit later. But. Yeah. So we'll see. Coach Doc. I saw something the other day that the nets again to try to get Popovich of Shovel Monson. Connection? He's on this list to they put everybody on it says, L. is here actually five to one odds Popovich at shoulder Jordan is the gouge the Bulls. Air Lovey. Lovey giving you was it. I did see Popovich where the heck is. Popovich. They've screwed this up. There's an error in this email just says three hundred fifty. But I think it's supposed to be three. It's basically three and a half to one odds that's to well, that's ridiculous. Okay. Darvin Ham also in the mix on a couple of these becky Hammons, all the names you know all the names you know in love. All right next one here. Hey, no deadly Dinka renews first of all, thank you. For the awesome content you guys have been putting out, keep grinding Chris Paul James, Harden Russell Westbrook, and Damian have all had hall of fame careers to this point without a championship as they finish their careers without a title, which of these four players do you think would be the quote best player to never won a ring? Thank you. That's from Gail in Austin Trey. What do you think Chris Paul James Harden Russell Westbrook and Damian Lillard who would be the best considered the best player to not actually wintering if they do this is a nice force them to choose from for me. It comes down to between a James Harden and Chris Paul. No offense to Lillard and Westbrook they are hall of Famers Likely, Hall..

Zion leaves NBA bubble for 'urgent' family matter
"All right one to turn to this story from inside the bubble, and it's a big one the Pelicans announcing yesterday the Williamson left the NBA bubble yesterday morning. Because of under undisclosed urgent family medical matter now Williamson intends to return at some point here's this coach Alvin Gentry. Don't know anything right now from the standpoint of. Coming back and you know obviously us. We've discussed supportive. Amina's family and their privacy doing this time right now, you know. We played forty four games without him and. You know we have top stretching, and we also had a stretch for. We won twelve out of sixteen. Without Him, so obviously, he's a great player that we'll miss, but the one thing that we've always talked about even when we went through times is that. Next Man. Marc Spears joins US live from inside the bubble at Disneyworld mark. Seems a little unclear as to why he left. What are you hearing about that about why he left at this point? Look the PELICANS are keeping it really really close to the vest, and they've been like that all all season. Way Him, you know this is still a teenager very very protective of their future star, and it's a family matter so I certainly understand that, but when it comes to him coming back, Ryan is really complicated. Absence of seven days or less, he s a quarantine. Four days upon return to the bubble with negative tests needed each day. Longer than a week. He has quarantine for four days. If he has a negative test the final day seven days he has gone. Without a required COA testing he will quarantine for ten days, so the Pelicans will debut. On July thirtieth they're one of four teams that play in the first day to resumption. It's not a lot of time between now, and then they have their first criminals, and just a few days, so yeah. The PELICANS certainly have a lot to worry about in their hopes of trying to get back to the playoffs, Yeah and we certainly wish Zion Williamson, and is it well with this family matter I mean that's first and foremost here hoping they're okay, but I look at this as well and I say without him. What are their chances of moving far into the playoffs structure? Like Alvin said you know. They played forty four games without him. Brandon Ingram the all star. He played most of those games at power forward. Without Zion, but once I came back. He only missed one game, and they have a stretch for by the name of Niccolo Meli. Not Not too hot says Zion has not the game design has I think the average is like seven games seven points a game. He would likely replace Zayn at power forward with Ingram staying in the small force spot, and I. Think drew holiday, said it best. He said you know. As much as it hurts to say, we've done it before in terms of playing without Zayn.

That's rare I don't know I you're in a League of your own For those people that raced to one million already to motherly. Maybe yeah I know. You're you're the Mount Rushmore.

'cause I've been wanting to get your getting alone but I'm the dead very I'm at the back. Starts all his stuff. The backyard And then they real and again I've had on the show nice and Earlier during the year and we talked about what it was witnessed startup field. We do we were almost in two years and your Guy Ashraf there is like the don't watch and he was like are. Are you guys doing a podcast. Yeah you can see it right. You're doing this event that the mean aerienne sprout kickstart. This guy breaks my. Oh my gosh you break my buzz. We were getting motor arguing apart. Yes we're right in the middle of those funny okay. How does one race? A six million in dollar series eight five. Not a lot of people at least in this country has reached series aid because people always die in between seed too serious because of premature poor scaly. Yeah that's where people fuck this up a lot. Because they think they have so much money they make it rain next thing they know right Dan. How did you guys get due to be eligible To raise a series so I think that comes down to maybe our backgrounds so alex is from very small like she was employee number one in the start up before sprout. I was in a company where we bootstrapped all the way through so I especially that experience was was kind of critical I think Queer bootstrap so and we bootstrap to business from zero to like last year private equity company invested. I don't know I don't know if they've come out. Whatever over over billion into the country a lot allow freaking out for a portion of ownership just portion not even just the acquisition portion so so we grew that business a lot From an always bootstrapping so I was used to keeping of like doc look at the end of the day and this is something that I think startups need to get their mind around Like you're building a business. You need to have a good business fundamentals. What are those fundamental? So you need because you can always say I need that bundle mentors. I might good in economics the unit. Let's deep dive on that economics in terms of metrics. You know your costs to the to the detail to the very last ship man hours whatever the fuck it is what. What are those for you? `economics for so unique nominees will really depend on business for for SAS The things we super look out for your LTV CAC in your lifetime value customer. They don't Know Tossing Acquisition Austin lifetime. Value Customer Yeah. That's one of those things I'm churn like in SAS. It's your turn you live and die by churn And that was something that we like. Watch like a hawk and just like we over invested and we just spent so much time making our client's happy because in the early days we're all every contract was month to month at anytime. A client could just cancel it right into annual there's no continuity radio we are left with this team because he scale lastingly as you grow right and then your costs are fixed. Yeah in order to serve that right any any enterprise that are B2B would have that and then if you turn and there. There's a lot of attrition. Did they leave. There's no security for you. What do yeah right yeah? It sounds like it's easy. Close beauty contract the life cycle of a close lead to bitch to close six months right to imagine you hire the resources you spend time training them then you deploy them in the field they start pitching and then they closed deals that that is like six months so your investment is like six months of any kind of revenue. So you'd have to be super conscious of that kind of thing so we kept. I think what allowed us to raise series as that we didn't get get WE'VE BEEN PRETTY CAPITOL efficient. We didn't get too carried away. We only right in the seed round. We raised one point six million And we saw big big seat for a Filipino company. I guess so I guess maybe in in the higher and avert respective Wiessee Company got invested on recently pay Mongo. Yeah yeah got around to three. But that's coming out of the valley. I from local one one point six. That's huge yeah. Yeah so mm-hmm yeah I guess. Yeah so really watching unit economics. I think one thing that we that we really did early on was that we did things that don't scale in. This is Paul Graham. I see eventually have wife slapstick. Don't care what does that mean. Well so I think a lot of startups get kind of trapped and trying to build the perfect product the perfect processes right from the get. Go like okay. This is our architecture gonNA be okay okay. If one million people hit the system at the same time when you only have five people hitting the system. I mean. You're really solved for problems that are there Yeah so for today's problems go. This goes back to Patrick and churn so we really really spent a lot. hand-held clients really took care of our because sometimes you gotta also bend over backwards backwards or just to not lose them again. The biggest problem of them all and and please say Amen. If people don't fucking pay on time delivery fucking meeting about I don't know what it is. Your fucking Er invoices has been sitting on your ship for Classic Classic. Yeah Yeah Yeah do things that don't go like I think one that one of the lessons of that philosophy is like basically having a really keen focus on what problems to solve So like don't solve for a problem that you don't have yet because you can't can't afford to as a startup correct like Anna for us. We were always solving for growth and retention everything. How do we grow faster? How do we keep all all of our clients How do we get clients onboard faster because like hr and payroll that whole? There's a whole on boarding game there. That's really tough to play But yeah absolutely okay now question about building teams because now you also here so the one that I'm really impressed with your invest or had community development guy. She got him got him from kickstart to work with you. Yeah Alex Alabi. It'd be so again chat out and I'll tell you why such a crucial to how I wouldn't party foul was dying my life I started. I was already like no you know no money. No people whatever sick dude. I'm so down to do smoking like three or four or five cigarettes in it back then and we were smoking on what to do and I don't know I'm just I'm I'm at WIT's end and Alex says just write it down just like a normal. Don't joke this of true Philly Guy. Just write it down and don't don't do don't post it or not are don't don't share it. Yeah I wrote it down put it on medium the thirteen lesson from startup purgatory. I wrote my heart out. I was crying fucking written with that Doc. All the failures that did it viral. Somebody fucking dug it up and I was part of that. Listen Twenty sixteen of depart start. Upset died that year just like go list. You don't ever want to be part of yeah right but it's because of that. I also accepted my failure faster because as I wrote it down so again thank you Alex. Good shout wisdom from is the wisdom city. uh-huh okay. So how do you now able to find better people to keep for attack because you know sometimes the court team is not what you need to skip Jack. How are you able to identify those? And how do you get the member. Good question and I don't think.
"gentry" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Sometimes like that deer in the headlights, I block, I haven't heard much of anything about this guy at all my question in the headline of this episode guys is will Zac, gentry even make an impact in two thousand nineteen. That's what I wanna know. So let's with Brian will this guy even make an impact? Will we even be talking about, I'm not that he's not gonna make the team? Will we even be talking about that gentry come? September. I think this is going to mostly a redshirt season for Zach gentry, but really, you know, I'm thinking that this guy is going to surprise you with one touch down. Maybe maybe lucky to have a hundred yards entire season, and then but this is all going to be the build up to be ready for year. Number two, he's gonna play sparingly remember young guys, it takes a long time to get that get that rhythm with Ben Rothlisberger in. You have to earn his trust any of a lot to do so. Lehai said, I think this is going to be a learning year for them. I think he makes the fifty three you can't stash the sky on the practice squad. But it's gonna take a lot for him to get in there. Eating what are your thoughts on? Zach gentry? As of right now, the third T spots, basically handed to them, unless the Steelers decide to do something else to make a trade. He's really what, what there is. It's. It's interesting these a fifth round pick 'cause I don't know. I don't really have the numbers to back this up put it feels like the Steelers liked to take fliers on guys in the fifth round that possibly remind them of somebody else. That's exactly what the did with Brian Allen. He was fifth round pick corner out of Utah. Well, he's tall. He's athletic. He's almost like a he's almost like a Richard Sherman. Okay. Let's see if you can develop into that. Well, we haven't we haven't seen that, but he's still sticking with the team. You know, some people see the size and everything of gentry all when he was a quarterback when even came to Michigan. It's, it's I feel it's a flyer. I feel it's a it's a it's a pure flyer. And we'll see if that, if they hit on one of these, so I don't know enough about. He had four college touchdowns to junior to senior. He did not have very many yards receiver in college. But get him on a pro team, get him with the right body type. I mean how many titans do we have in the NFL that were basketball players in college? You know didn't even play football. So it's it's a project. So I think I think Brian's, right? He's going to make the fifty three but it's more of like a redshirt cheese. Yes, it is the question that was posed both in the headline than what I said, was, I don't think this guy is gonna make an impact into those nineteen if they're ever gonna run the three tight end set. He's probably not even going to be on the field build row in extra tackle out there before they put Zach gentry on the field with Vance Madonna in Xavier grumble unless there's an injury, I can see him being a game day inactive every single week. I actually wouldn't be shocked if he gets cut, I don't know. I, I just feel like he's gonna have to show something that isn't out on the market right now. That's possibly vailable or maybe one of these undrafted free agents or I don't know. It would be really interesting. Bucky Hodges was still on the team because he was a guy that a lot of people liked and looked. Okay. And then they just they caught him. So I don't I don't know what happened there. But I'm gonna say that he does not make an impact a guys you have any stats or anything a day. Have you talked to touchdowns VP else you wanted to go over with, with gentry? I know I gotta be professional. I got myself. Yeah. He had. Well we came in as a freshman a quarterback, he didn't even play tight end until he was a junior and in nine games, yet, he had what seventeen catches for three hundred and three yards..

"Back to back alvin gentry went off on the refs after the game because he thought there was an officiating imbalanced houston had eighteen free throw attempts and versus twelve for the pelicans but it was fourteen to six in the second half and i think what the big point the gentry was getting at and we saw some of that in the boston game was just ad can be hard to officiate and we've seen this with big men going back to shack or far far earlier than that that dominant physically dominant in eighty and a different way albeit big men oftentimes get shortchanged by officials it's just they get hacked all the time and it doesn't get called and so i understand injury only got fined fifteen grand and i think he kinda got his money where money's worth to a point but the idea that ad is not going to get the whistles you should is to a certain degree just a fact of life for the pelicans skill bruni watching the boston broadcast and he said oh l elvin really got his fifteen thousand worth like other making his calls for a d you know he ended up six out of eight free throws which was probably fewer than you would normally attempt a lot of games but i didn't really care for that opinion psycho see you like because they made this one call that i don't agree with that means that is i mean you just again i said this many times fans broadcasters players coaches unless you have data from the entirety of the season showing that your guy has bad calls against him more so than other players decided that there's something intentional that you're getting into the refs heads that there's all this gamesmanship that certain players just get screwed over i mean it doesn't matter who you talk to in the league every single executive every single coach if you ask them what think that their team's not getting a fair shake from the rest.
