"Defense to improve dramatically? But if they don't believe Russell Wilson is capable more than capable of carrying this team and he's proven it offensively, they average the most points in the league. When. It comes to explosive plays, they're right there tops the League they had the most twenty plus yard touchdown passes in the air as well as touchdown passes over twenty plus yards on the ground. So they know how they have to beat teens and that's offensively by putting points up on the board. However when you don't str- when you struggled defensively on third down as well as struggling offensively on third down, it puts a lot of pressure on Russell Wilson and The one thing we saw this previous week against the cardinals was him do something uncharacteristic of what we've seen all season and that's turn the ball over. He cannot turn the ball over with this deepens playing the way that they play because it's not complimentary of what they do. Now they don't get a lot of stops, but they take the ball away their top or in the league top five in the league with takeaways, which gives Russell Wilson and that offense extra. Possessions to put the ball on the board. So they do compliment each other weirdly enough in it allows them to be where they are sitting atop the NFC west. Greg every time I get an opportunity to let everybody know my preseason predictions. I'm going to take it right. So I picked the Seattle. To make it to the Super Bowl Pick Russell Wilson to be league MVP right. But I don't believe Russell is strong enough and good enough to carry this team to a super bowl because that is the goal. Now, can he win you ten gains by himself? The way he's playing absolutely. Need. This defense to be better through six games? They're the worst ever in NFL history. So Insert dunlap. He is disruptive. He's not a guy that's gonNA. Come in and get three or four sacks a game, but he's a guy that can be dominant versus the run. He's a guy that can disrupt in the past game. He's also a great guy in the Locker Room I love this pick. You also have Damian Snacks Harris who's probably a week or Two away from also come in and joining that defense line Jamal Adams coming back from that growing injury any day. Now, those guys playing together can easily take this team from the worst with genesis it to one of the not wanting the best but a good a good defense a capable defense now here's the issue though Greg it's like you playing against. The Chicago bears for nine years played against those dudes twice a year. They did the same thing over and over and over again they played cover too and they played three and that's what they did and everybody knew it. Their problem in Seattle outside of personnel issues is that they'd been running the same defense for years now, and we all know exactly what they're going to do in every single situation. The difference between Seattle compared to the Chicago bears is this you have Brian Urlacher on side Okay in-between possessing saying look we just said Pepsi Pepsi Pepsi when we say at Pepsi Air Rogers, Greg, Jennings Donald driver everybody heard it, and we went to cover to now they're on the sideline thinking that next time we call Pepsi's won't be covered too. So this time Pepsi is down I'M GONNA call. Pepsi, and when they think we're to cover two. We're actually going to three, and that's why when you say we're talking off line like man this defense, they perfected it but it was Brian Urlacher being able to adjust in those moments if you're going to run the same defense over and over again then you gotTa have that adjustment you gotTa have that quarterback that Peyton manning that can get you into different plays when you understand what the offense is about to throw at you. So the two issues in Seattle is personnel and skiing they gotta find a way to fix this because they have Russell Wilson this offense that is hot and it can lead you to the Super Bowl I agree with you to a degree I don't mind what they do. Defensively it's the personnel. If you don't have the personnel to back up what you do, it doesn't matter what defense you try to insert. It doesn't matter what scheme you try to draw up. You're not going to be effective because you don't have the personnel to actually execute what it is you're. Trying to provide an offense of look. So I understand what you're saying I agree to to a degree, not only the Chicago bears had personnel across the board at all three levels who understood how to do their job and I think with the acquisition of Dunlap you. He's GonNa apply the pressure. He's GonNa get in the face of the quarterback he's going to allow. Shaquille Griffin and all those guys to be able to cover a little longer bobby wagner opportunities to get off of the offensive lineman so that because they're covered up now by deepens of Lyman, it's all it all plays together and that's what they're not doing. Well but Russell Wilson has been able to put the ball in the end zone and quite frankly with this being the number one point scored ever in the history of the national. Football League in two thousand and twenty. That's all that matters put the ball in the end zone. So, listen. Everyone Loves Russ's playing and I wanted to give brandon credit for believing that. Pete Carroll was finally this year going to let him cook and let him show the whole world that if given the opportunity, he can put up these types of numbers. But I also want to give wild credit for continuing alarm on this defense because the Seattle seahawks are forty two inches away from being in last place in their division. One Yard against New England six inches against Minnesota and you might say well Nick but they won those games. Fine. Let's look forward if they lose Sunday and there are only three point favorites we could walk in here Monday morning and they would be currently on the outside looking in of the expanded playoffs. The margins are not big as great as the offense has been they have one I, know they lost a heartbreaker against Arizona. But they've won some very close. Games leading up to that, and the defense has to get better wilds because we saw for the first time all year Russell Wilson made some mistakes and his great as he is that's not going to be the last time we made mistakes and they lost the NFC is too deep and too good outside of the NFC east to be able to get by and get through the postseason with they legitimately awful half of your team, which is what the defense has been. Carlos dunlap is a huge difference maker but I do think Jamal Adams could be he's supposed to practice yesterday they expect him to play this weekend that to me is the bigger addition wild getting Jamal Adams back from injury. Yeah. So there's two things that I don't think we're ever going to hear from Russell Wilson one him say Mr Unlimited again in to have a post game press conference where he's like you know what? I had a bad game. Thank goodness for our defense. They bailed me out. We're onto next week every game they've given up twenty, five, thirty, thirty, one, twenty, three, twenty six, and then the cardinals scored thirty four. And scored thirty seven they finally lost. So Greg Champion I don't think when you won your ring it's like you know what we need. Aaron Rodgers to play perfect every single game you gotta everybody's human you gotTa have a little bit of wiggle room a little margin for error. So Russell Wilson could be a normal person and you guys can they can still win games are right now he doesn't have that luxury. while. You're exactly right in what I'm saying my main point is the defense does just enough I know number stats say that they're terrible they're horrific and yes, they need to improve. However when we won our defense wasn't tops on the in the League but they created turnovers they gave are our it's who was the strength of our team opportunities to put the ball Indians..

Connections between people who drive on the road saying those calls writes yes. Of course, it applied to the mini didn't really apply to the latest cool tate and Orlando lots of colds.

"Related to recovery, although really I, think everything is kind of related to recovery. This is still recovery podcast and will remain so but. I also didn't get sober so that I could stuff down my feelings. I didn't quit drinking to keep being a people pleaser am I'm definitely not in recovery, so that I can stop learning. But. Here's one thing I need to get off my chest with you guys. My listeners because I love you. I have a responsibility to every single listener to try and represent your stories on the podcast, and if you're experiencing trauma from racism that contributes to your drinking, or if there is a lack of representation in your recovery than we need to talk about that.

And if you're listening, and you don't see the connection between recovery and racism yet I'm inviting you to learn more because the two are linked closer than you think.

"Does any of this Bryan seemed viable to you? I mean it certainly convinced me to go quarantine biggest but I know I actually think in terms of practicality if you're going to do this sort of bubble kind of concept it makes more sense to do it in Florida than it does in in Vegas just because you have realized you know they open up the spas as you have a much easier time. Keeping the public out of places at Disneyworld is a giant piece of private property. There's more ability for the athletes and their families presumably did move around and not feel like they're seeing I realize big hotels and whatever but you're still feeling isolated in one spot if you can go from this part of Disneyworld to another part of Disneyworld and you're on the bus and you like people who have been there. It is a massive massive property that you you literally have to shuttle around from place to place I feel like the sense of isolation would be far less. There is a much more easy much easier to bring your kids of the two places. I think that's the more viable option. Well even Ramona said when she was on earlier that one one reason she's going going south on the bubble concept. Is that these guys. These players don't want to be apart from their families. So anyone any one of these proposals has got to be welcoming to families and it sounds like both that they both are so which makes sense. I mean you don't WanNa be away from your family for that long but It depends on your show. John John How do you feel? Do you feel more optimistic or do you think this is just going to be. There's so many challenges here. I've been optimistic the whole time because I think that you're going to. You're going to see sports coming back like this Korean baseball starting up next week Brian. You Mentor I think as you mentioned Nascar Golf coming back what this looks like a month from now we'll be different from what it looks like now so. I'm optimistic that something can get done but after listening to Ramona. I'm less optimistic about the bubble. I'm not sure the bubble is a way it gets done. It may look more like what the Bob Nightingale Baseball proposal was where you play in your own stadium with no fans. I'm starting to think that's the more likely scenario but no I'm not I'm not pessimistic. I'm not bill plachy Allen who on your show last night and thinks the world is ending. Some sort of bills always glass half empty. Kind of guy wonderful dude but I mean if there's you know he's not gonna come in and just cheer up the room. That's not bills. Things got no allan put on and then you had that. Jabbar young on last night too right. Yeah that was a little dazzle. We just trying to kill the general enthusiasm in the city was. Was it like the Downer shirt sleeve goes down in the cans special. You know what it is John. Actually more than anything is. I've spent a lot of time. You know plain out every scenario and talking about and really being optimistic as well look the NBA. Obviously Adam silver the players. You saw the Bronx tweet yesterday. They WanNa make this thing work but when there's other angles to it. I am curious. The Jabari young part there was he had some decent points in their the one thing that I just completely disagree with is. Let's just shut the season down right now. I don't I don't understand who would hurt if you wait thirty more days or if you wait sixty more days like why do you have to make a decision right now? Can't you just kind of kick the can down the road and see what happens? His angle was. It's not safe so it's not safe. Why would you do it? The point I was trying to make was waltz not safe today. They're not saying they're gonNA start it today. Obviously a different angle. Everybody has their their opinions on it. All right let's bring back. Alan Suger was hanging out with Brian Information. Espn LA seven ten basically ensure winding down. We're getting ready to hand it off to sleep at sunset Alan. What do you got coming up on the big extravaganza tonight Hit on a log this NBA stuff. I'm actually the part of delaying the twenty. Twenty twenty one twenty. I just don't want their season until next season right for next season but doing it either way right like that's the idea. The conversation is about that either way to do it. I think that part's interesting. And then John Orange from the sports business journal on some ideas the. Nfl has to shake up the schedule if they need to about delaying the season. I'm actually Brian talking about earlier. I'm not against starting next season. In December it may happen out of necessity but I think a lot of things are going to be born out of the corona virus that they're going to try just because they have to and let's see I mean not going head to head with the NFL and moving the season deep into the summer. I who knows it until we try it. We won't know what it is. I wouldn't be against that. What you John. I think what? It is I'll kinda use this as an example if a big NBA. Fan like you and I and BK K will watch anytime right. Like literally doesn't matter. They could start the season anytime of the year. And we're all in it but I think for maybe that more casual fan that Christmas or that December timeframe of starting the season for the NBA. I'll think it's a bad idea at all. Like you said is going to be less competition and again. That's probably more for a casual fan. That doesn't watch the NBA. Like we do Brian. I'm sitting here okay. So I've talked about this on the show before I have east coast feeds at my house because I have direct TV. They're getting rid of them. I'm not going to be able to hang onto it for much longer. But I've had them for like twenty years and it's great so tonight on ABC. They're running a special on Phil. Hartmann the late. Snl COMEDIAN. Ooh Watch that. Yeah so it's going to be on later. And so I've I've had it on in the background with the sound down so I can hear what's going on but one of the things that they're showing is that Phil Hartmann was once a winning contestant on the dating game remember the old dating game show or you'd have three is and they're showing other clips of people who ended up being famous. Who were once contestants on the dating game? I never knew that Steve. Martin George Foreman the boxer Gregory hines and fill Hartmann where all contestants. I know that I didn't know that either. That is spectacular news. I I love things like that. There's also a famous serial killer that was on the dating game in one. That's not good to wait. He won so they they sit women out on a date with the serial killer yes they did see one and then after the backstage interaction after the fact like he was like super smooth and convincing and had all the like the right words to say on the show but as soon as they got backstage. They started talking. I guess the woman said like she got a really bad creepy vibe from them and she used the word creepy and she said she didn't feel comfortable so they like lied and made something up because they were worried that this woman felt that creep out in unsafe and he ended up being a serial killer. I'm glad they made that choice. I would I was wasn't exactly the dating game but I was on A. I was a bachelor auction when I lived in San Diego for Children's Hospital. So a bunch of guys who were single at the time agreed agreed to do it and And so I can't remember. It wasn't a ton of money. Maybe like twenty five hundred bucks. That works John Good work. Well no but it was. You know there were guys. Don't want for way more than me. Let's put it that way but the only reason I agreed to do it is because my friend Greg champion will now call out personally agreed to do it with me and I go okay. So we're selling this as a package deal right whatever. Our date is in the people from children's Hospital. We're great okay. What do you want to do? And we've put together like a package weakened in Vegas we're going to show and it was and we had a bunch of fun stuff set up and so we we each get bought by women in the audience and the money all goes to children's hospital and the trip is two weeks later so like three days before the trip. I called champion my buddy and we already broke up I go with. What do you mean you already broke up? You weren't even supposed to go out with her until we left for the trip. He goes. Yeah we had. We didn't have sixty seventy five John. What do what do you think what goes for an auction? Well it depends. It depends Alan what the charity is if the charity. If we can put you in a bachelor auction for a good cheerio real like that one. Like like children's Hospital of La Mason. And I would make sure that you did not get left standing up. They're going for low money we would. We would take it upon ourselves. Perso- personally to get you a very sum guaranteeing that anyone that bought the sunset experience would be handsomely rewarded. Yeah you'll probably get asked to do it. At some point it just depends on what the charity is Cuba. Charity that that you've never heard of don't do it. But if there was some for children's hospital do it because that's a really good one is that is children's hospital the one that how he's always do you know how power do. Saint Jude's which is interesting too. So here's the Saint Jude's yelling you are correct. He did some stuff when he was with the Lakers he. He did a big thing where he went and learned about like surgery. And all that kind of that was children's. You're right and he was the greatest celebrity I've ever seen. He was more. No one of my filters. I've said this before Brian. You covered him to was the most normal famous person. I've ever met completely unafraid. Palca Saul was completely and still is unaffected by fame. He might be the most famous athlete in Spain. It's either him or Rafa Nadal. Who's friends with? Maybe some of the soccer players but if he walked up to you on the street he would have a ten minute conversation with just the greatest guy and so all whatever. Pows involved in I'm in and he. He did a ton of stuff for Saint. Jude's and Brian do remember that he did step for for Children's Hospital Villa too so good for him. All Right Allan. The weekend is upon us. I'm handing it off to your you ready. Are you set for a big weekend? Have you guys seen? La Originals on Netflix. What is l. a? Originals is kind of a breakdown estevan. Oriol will come on the show a little bit later and the cartoon if you guys know who that is a famous photographer and a famous tattoo. Artists that kind of set this whole culture for for La.

"Don't forget how to make the gravy PROB- probably and that's you know families have that thing. It's like Warren always brings the prawns. You know he always goes the fish Mac and he Dr. Shell Lebron's Warren Schilling. The prins is at a do it properly you know and in this song is a really beautiful picture of Of of that sort of a of distance and being denied that gathering. And it's a very powerful a beautiful song and I think that's it taps into something about Christmas that some that's very resonant and true and it's and that's that Christmas is You know something that distance. Aw just that we've lost family. There's always people who may may not I'll be there for one reason or another and dumb and it is a real reminder of of a family loved ones. You know it's funny. Isn't that when when when everyone's especially happy or joyful that can be a a a real time of Thinking about this but I do also think you know the thought that a life is lived well in our found that that's the goodness of life be it along law for for a shorter life is You know that there is comfort in that in my my dad's not with US anymore. But he was with this phone ninety one years and And and he he lived his life. Well we had that time so this is something I find. I can draw out of that rather than thinking about. He's absence so much which is always you. You know something that's lingering but also to think about the presence of those who are they and think. Well how am I really nurturing and celebrating and enjoying the presence of the people who are around you know and I think that's part of getting older and And just the sadness of of Saint People Go. It's it's sort of. You can use that to drive into the joy of presence as well rather than the the sadness of absence. You've released a number of Christmas albums A couple of keys and another one. That strikes meal a release that you had is the twelve days of Ozzy Christmas Christmas which obviously is a wonderful contrast to the Christmas songs that we get about snow in the northern hemisphere experience. How important to you is? Is it that we Australian is at Christmas experience. Where you sort of asking the Ozzy Christmas Guy in Ah tell me what? You've done a lot of these ozzy songs. Yeah it's funny really look it all began and you know you radio guys. I have a lot to answer for I was asked by an Richard Gava who who's on. ABC Radio and in fact. I'm not even sure that he had his regular program I think he was filling in On on ABC radio In Sydney and was doing Christmas Missa lead up to Christmas. I it was a live show in the big hole at the ABC Ultimo Centre in Sydney and And said there was an audience there and he'd sit look. Can you come along long seeing seeing a Christmas song. And it'd be nice to have something sort of funny and you know and he he's always been a bit like right is a Song Song Colin and even whenever I do his program. He's the expectation is that all have written a song for the occasion which is which has not been an onerous task on this occasion. I just said ahead the thought that no I. What if what if I fiddled around with jingle bells and it was like dashing through the bush a rusty halden suit and it was virtually driving in there? This was coming together so it was real Bus ticket sort of June. Where Rod got their chicken was finishing the song that sort of that sort of thing and And I sent saying it. And it was like they'd recorded it and they started playing it it on the radio and people with. What's this song so I just read? This is back in nineteen ninety-three snotty three. I think so I I. I had album just about to come out and we recorded that song with the band just popped it on the end of the album and Two two zero fanfare and probably probably some scratched heads because it was a country album and then at the end of it was was Ozzie. Jingle bells but Tom and I just thought I I've seen this on connect so A little bit lighter friend of mine and I were talking Champs Greg Champion and I said I think there's an album of songs we should ride. A whole lot of Australian is D- Christmas Christmas songs and we jingle bells can sort of be the flagship and And let's. Let's make an album called Ozzy Christmas with back our champs and I'm sorry not in ninety four. That's what we did. We released it. Christmas ninety ninety four and down and that was the beginning of the OSCE Christmas Avalanche for for us because that album went platinum that year it was an unexpected success and And it was Dick the shed with bits of wattle and frosty rusty. The Elbow Santa Claus has got a new truck. And I think it was just that sense that We love those Christmas. Dismiss traditions the something cozy and and reassuring and familiar about them. And and the song's about snow and so forth you know have a certain charm to them. mm-hmm chestnuts roasting on an open fire. And I think they just ozzy sort of shared the jerk that Actually that's sort of not not only. Is it not happening here. Not really hot but it has zero cultural sort of two in reality so it was not it. was that sort of irreverence reverence that That made Ozzy Christmas really get traction and it's become one of the CD's that sit in with the Christmas decorations and it's like gets pulled at the November. The eight also. And it's like Oh let's play Kurt Spas and So it's really become this institution I I I was. I was contacted by Scholastic progressive who really the leading kids picture book. produces produces in Australia and And their boss Andrew Beckett said Lagarde Think it'd be great to do a children's book on Ozzy Jingle Oh bells. Is that something you'd be happy to do and And you know it absolutely. Yes and so. That became the beginning of a number of those songs from Ozzy Christmas Back on Champs that that that got either adapted adapted into children's picture books and and in a number of other ones as well which they say we we've been thinking it'd be nice to do x y and attended to be seasonal records and astrid dried in that they like to inject in the in the picture books a bit of a story to to to it so that was a different sort of challenge so shared with bits of Waddell. It became a story of ALMETCO woman who had decorated. He's he's shed and then a big blow came through and destroy Roydon while I was asleep really dejected. All all the animals can I mean and redecorated with with bits of Bush blooms and so forth and AH big surprise. And that's what I think. So so that's been nice. Because they found their way they've had a musical element to them. And I've twelve days of Christmas too and they found a way into Preschools schools and Christmas pageants and PSI. Force are sort of Bannon. Yeah I've just been In the Christmas Christmas Guy In some ways you know hold the franchise or anything. It's But it's been caught a over the years quite a big pad of Yeah Yeah my my songwriting catalog. And it's been a NAS NAS contribution might that's very cool. This podcast is trying to improve some some of the world's most pressing problems one of them. Obviously I've talked to you about Christmas and yet he's I think because Christmas is the most incredibly stressful time of year when it comes to navigating shopping centers end of year concerts and Christmas parties and even the stress of getting together as a family and catering battering it can be a nightmare times so I came to ask you. What shall we do about Christmas? Colin how are we going to make it. Less stressful is for what stresses you at festival. Well you know. I think you've summed it up a little in the questions that just that deadline. I mean it can be hard. You know what presents to buy What what do people really need? That's a very that's that's stepping into the The underworld underwhelmed there. If you if you now culture and acid side you start asking that question you pretty much come up with the answer. Actually we pretty much need almost nothing thing and And yet we're buying so much for each other so look a few a few helpful hacks. Christmas heck's away Pam we do the the by for one person not by for lots of people I when the key amongst the adults are families a bit bigger So Oh in the extended family. We pull names out of a hat and I just by Roddy Suzanne and so it's like a hundred dollar present variety Suzanne rather rather than five twenty eight fifty dollars presents. So I actually sort of saves money as well but you buy and you you buy what Auntie Suzanne says I actually I really liked this this gym gear or something so I so Uh that's that's what I I mean. Some people say oh. I like giving presents to everyone and I wouldn't sort of hard and fast because families are different but but that's sort of helpful because then you know people are not necessarily opening things I think. Oh goodness what do I do that. I needed green green handbag handbag. Just calling Yeah So so we do that. I also think The Non Christmas Day family gathering can take the pressure off. We've had some really good two weeks before Christmas Day. Christmas gatherings and an quite quite loud that the traffic's not as crazy you because that's that's horrible thing about Christmas Day in the city In Sydney it's you could be stuck in a traffic jam on Christmas. Stay as you think. What are we doing here? What are the what are these people doing here? And then you think on. Oh I'm one of them Yup My My sister buys ham on Christmas Eve. At you know whatever SUV market might be. But she just goes in you know at at nine o'clock and And they reduce all the Hams and And she's got superbug Ans. That's been of a risk though. Because he might know hands correct. Yeah Yeah Ed's I think it's more I wouldn't try that at the butcher but Our arm inclined to think Yeah generally generally. I think the one thing that I've noticed don't do it with casted. There was a world custard shortage a couple years back. Everyone's talking about it. You know it was basically hit the headlines but yeah I know what you're left with is like Pinnacle Lada custard left there and can you imagine turning up with Christmas dinner and then you wake the cast of neurons and out to dive in and you've got the Jaffa custard. Everyone is what is this. What have you done? uh-huh sorry there was no regular chunky custody laughing so yeah it's a by a cast it early but I reckon you can probably get away with you know you'll you'll end up getting a a ham sixty eighty percent off because I don't want to send the Cabinet and Look if you can shop early. I mean planning always pays as off because it's those last couple of weeks where I out at local big shopping center They they've opened up the sort of the school next door.

If you're not in it. You know. Find Somebody to root for root for your friends or not even against them. That's even the better better just list that that like Ruined the guy like rooting for other people You know sometimes you have to. You know that. Make you smile. Sometimes we have one guy who went really deep in a league last year who who was always a doormat. He was the constant. He's the nicest guy in the world. I'm like our to see him we I I can't win it. Let's see that guy in losing the semi finals. So he didn't help him. But you know it makes you feel you could present Christmas spirit in your or something. I don't know I will say this. There's certainly people I want to win more than others every league. That's that works usually just prefer somebody different life for some. I'd have multiple titles like Oh gosh come unbearable with one Yeah one of our main league's leagues. I'm going for number four. Yeah Greg One championship belt in here. I was almost insulted. Almost insulted if I didn't no greg better never. NFL One of those before four four out of ten years. He has a pretty good pretty good run. That's not forty percent of the time Greg Champion. Well done well done. I'm zero rope. Acidity champion zero percents. But maybe that'll change this year. Because I'm in one leaks still. I'm still in a family greg. I beat my poor dad being in my poor old dead but I want to ask you something Greg say you have a trophy for league. You're in and save. The winner lives out of state. What do you Mellon the trophy? Do you go through the trouble of melanoma trophy. Aren't they want it. Maybe maybe take it out of the Jews who pays for that. Do I need to start putting them. They do yeah. I think so because I don't want to pay ship. Yeah I think so. You mentioned the belt that abroad earlier we talked about engraving the The winner of of each each year into some of the side plates and we talked about. We're GONNA added into the dues. That way it covers at every single year is be like a couple of dollars extra and that way every single new year we can go in and in grave the winner of that year live team name or last name in the year and so something like that. Yeah you should you cover you cover the entire league. Yeah absolutely we do have name aim plates for the trophy. I think the winner has gotten that each year but you know that that's not mandatory. Of course yeah. Yeah so if you're in a league where I commissioned get ready get ready to cost cost going up trophy tax greg. Let's do a triumph in a regret from week fourteen. From the first week of the playoffs I went one in two. So so you know I have lots of regrets. Yeah I'll start with my triumph It's just believing the Pittsburgh still that they've just been lights out. I stash a couple of leagues and starting them into. You can't go wrong with those guys right now. It's it's crazy I will be going against them in my last remaining leaks so excited about that. My regret oh no sorry my a triumph of the week fantasy theater giveth and fancy theater takeaway and last week I championed to different people and one of them was amazing. One of them was terrible but the one that was amazing is going to be my triumph. Aj Brown Mr Yak himself five catches one hundred fifty something yards two touchdowns if you started on. It probably swung the contest. So that's my triumph of the week. He's been he's been looking great he really has And for my Regret Grete. It's I'm one apologize to all the fantasy world here because I wasn't on this train and then I got on the train and now he's hurt. I'm sorry fantasy world. I'm sorry are devante Parker for Miami I was I was held out as long as I could in this week. I finally started him and I. I'm sorry I'm sorry everyone and devante Parker who sit out the rest of the day Parker. The poster boy for the breakout year. That never came and then it did come and and he's on a three win team. Hope you get healthy Devante Walker. My regretted the week. You know you should never say that a player is dead to you and fantasy because at the right price you can drop us about anybody. But I'll tell you what Greg there's some people that are just going to be off my draft board next year and I'm talking about Oh dow bail and Michelle. Yeah the dead to me dead to me. Odell can't play through little code. K played through little cold. I Guess Stop Blah but I'm Paul Hotel Beckham just costing me weeks in the I lost by less than two around two points in the league had ahead Odell. What Odell can't give me seven? You can't give me seven seven points. The new the new Tony Brown. That's what he is. I Hate Adele. It's so frustrating. I wouldn't even shake his hand. Wouldn't caleb tried to do a show. Well we got next Greg Oh speaking of Gado never had one name to your list of our refuse a draft again. Having Coleman Oh yeah as soon as you expect excellent guy he lets you down. At least he wasn't like top one or two round pick but he is that guy who just let you down along the way but now completely unstoppable completely droppable. Yeah can we drop most has taken over that backfield and I've even think they said this week. That is most backfield now and I think I last week. I said that there are a few back. Those void forty hundreds is no longer on that list simply because they look like they're going to commit to one back and said if somebody named Jeff Wilson junior taken every every second. Carry But Yeah so you start. Mo- certain semifinals this week. If you got them if oh yeah Oh yeah definitely. I think he's definitely start. They have once they have a pretty easy. The Atlanta this no then San Francisco plays the Rams Gabbert the play the rams at home and then they're at Seattle. I like most of the rest the year at least He's just going to get the ball out and he's one play he's at big play guy and especially I wrote down hugeness especially on the players. I got hurt this week. Like he may be. It's GonNa be a great flags with this past week. Was Sunday Bloody Sunday. It was it was. It's been rough. How many players went down candidate? Abacha really an independent. Basically if you survive the first week of the fancy play Oss through all these injuries than you're doing great because a lot of people didn't. Let's look at the playoff picture. Greg WanNa talk about the playoff picture in the AFC playoffs you got about eleven. Teams are still technically alive. But but Brown's raiders colts and broncos. They face a incredibly difficult road to make. I think it's pretty safe to say that they're out to agree. Oh yeah any of those coming back from six seven five. Eight teams looks like a seven team race for those six spots Ravens Patriots steelers. I know let's do sorry Ravens Patriots chiefs all feel safe. Yes we can agree with and chiefs have already won the division. Yep then you got four teams for those final three seats. It's you got the bills steelers Texans and titans. Yeah what do you see happening Greg. WHO's getting those spots break? I'm GONNA stick with the Titans. I still think that defense wins right now. The tines win the thing is when division so they and I think that the steelers l'urss and the building with wildcards wrote much first team out would be the Texans okay all right so it's almost division or bus. Spur Texans and titans the schedules. The Titans beat the Texans on Sunday and by the way is getting very hard not to smile a little kid when the titans are these days. It's a weird feeling great. You know what's weird feeling is when your quarterback drops back expecting something good to happen. Yeah you people are spoiled Loyd. Yeah I've never felt this. I'm like which draws back. I'm not nervous at all right now. Mike he's throwing heat check passes Greg as as in like let me do this. Mahomes Ish. I'm telling you and he's running a enough to keep the defense honest he has. He's putting up a good many yards on the ground and he. He is apparently great at tackling because even after interception he he is sticking guys tackle. That's one of the things that encouraged me. Most about him is he's had it's not like he's catching every break. Because he's had some tip balls and he's come back from all that he's had a fumble and he's come back from that. This is not Tannehill centric. I mean even even the fantasy He's been top three quarterback domes- several weeks. I mean he's he's he is league winner if you got him at the end of this year before nothing you got him off the scrap heap him and Derrick Eric Injury yes the only reason I still. I traded for Henry Week seven in that league since week. Seven he's been the second rb. NPR VR right behind. McCaffrey best decision. I Made Yeah although during that game After that he'll heard that Tanna he'll hit that other guy so hard that somehow coroda actually separated his shoulder so he he is questionable even for backing up this week. I wish you well Mario that won't take part in bashing you won't do it. I refuse to do it so but it's almost division bus titans or Texans because if the titans win this Sunday the Texans play the buccaneers next Saturday in Tampa. If the Texans lose that game which is very lose. -able bucket is. It's been pretty hot. Then the titans beat the Saints Their Division Champs. That last game doesn't matter they're not going to be the saints. This is not going to happen. I just I just don't I just there's nothing you're a little nervous but there's no I have no no I. I feel like the the saints have a better chance to Louis against the colts. Then they do think they have a loser home at home to the colts. I do. That's ridiculous I think one of the most overrated stats in the. NFL is how good the saints are at home if you look at if you look at it. They're actually not as good as Mosul Games at home this year. Yeah so I mean so. Most people think they're undefeated home every year. That's not the way it is. They usually lose about a third of their games at home and allows divisional opponents. And now I don't think they're gonNA lose either game but they also got. beat by the Falcons you know that it is a it is still the NFL. You never know which teams. But I just allow the Times I think that the the titans and the saints matchup terribly for the Titans. I really really do. Wow Wow that's shocking greg shocking you know..

It's a great conversation. One of the things that we did did is as we were kind of talking about it. You know we got into the conversation about rock bottom. What meets other people and how you know can mean different things in different ways to different people and we're we're having a great conversation about it and we wrapped up the episode and then as we're wrapping up and we're getting to close everything down? Greg starts talking about Out His own recovery story and his own rock bottom. And I'm like wait a minute. We didn't talk about that in the episode. We got record this so we went back and recorded it. And I and I edited into this episode so you could listen to it. I think it's great story. I think you're going to really enjoy it. I think it has a lot of useful information and It's just great to hear that so. Let's go ahead and start the episode. Hello everybody welcome to the victim. Mind podcast my guest today. Is Greg champion and he is going to talk about rock bottom so greg you want to introduce yourself. Tell us a little bit about you. Yeah Dwayne thank you for having me on your podcast. My Name's great champion. I am Co founder of startup recovery here in Pacific Palisades the transformational residents residents that supports people through career passion and other entities. That are what we call the recovery playbook and a little bit about me is in in November. I will be Twenty five years so I got sober in my mid twenty S. I hit my rock bottom. Which obviously we can talk a little bit about when we get there but you know the one thing people get twenty five years? How do you get twenty five years and years? I remained willing to be willing and what I mean by that is in the first year I get everything old school. A went to meetings in the steps got US got commitments in ninety and ninety and then as I got to the fifth year the tenth a year or the fifteenth year of again adding a breath work began adding sound back. I began at an Alanon to playbook. Whenever I got the stretched ashed in my disease someone would always show up with a tool for me to try out and so that has been my secrets by drug of choice was alcohol? I would drink an anything suggested to me after that I would do and I never did those things without alcohol being in my system. I and I'll simply say this in my experience. Paying Childhood Trauma Sub Sorta drama happened to me and many of us to which I didn't want I want to tell anybody or could not tell anybody and so I found a solution with drugs and alcohol to quiet those secrets in you know as well as I hi do. There's an old saying you're only as sick as your secrets and so for me in a wrap up here. Is You know my first sponsor said to me Greg. Big Plus Drugs and alcohol equal jail and from age twenty two to twenty four and went to jail eight times and this is a college educated kid who went to private schools news of a nice middle class neighborhood. You know and it was Greg Plus Drugs Alkyl jail. Here's what he says. Don't you try taking drugs and alcohol out of the equation. She how many times do you go to jail. And so what I can tell you with nearly twenty five years of Sobriety Duane. How many times I've been to jail right? I zero zero see. Jail is whether it's a bad relationship or bad money problems or whatever take drugs now all out of the equation and yeah I can make it a same promise your jail not have you know so. That's kind of my overview. I will say how I got in this. Business is for years ago. I was speaking at a meeting and I was telling my experienced ranked the no I was saying. Hey I got sober my twenties. I began business in my thirties. I've been toward a lot of twentysomethings. I was able to teach entrepreneurship at USC. I'm a father a husband. It also comes into the heat you would make a great group facilitator guilty and I went to my phone and on my group shelter and no idea what a group facilitator was. And so I began being grouped acilitator at her Rehab of Malibu and the short amount of time I began going for one group to six groups in the second year. I had a private practice which was doing recovery coaching with people in their first Third Dude Fifth Tenth Year people that were stuck right right. Yeah and then. Two years ago my partner Geoffrey van and I started startup recovery. Here the Allison's we have the two homes and so for we really again I think you're a big proponent at manifested puts up out there when told my what it sounds like what you were saying just to Kinda go back a little bit you know you said the first part is your willingness to be willing right. That's a key you have to really just say. Hey I'll do anything right. And then though you know what I also noticed is you have that. Continuous mindset of that continuous journey going forward always looking always working on on your healing always growth. PAIN IS GONNA show up on your doorstep and I'll give you an example. I dealt with the mother who died of Alzheimers. Hey I did awesome. I'd assist or commit suicide three years ago. I did that so I've been divorced. I did that so and so these are life problems that are painful and I get through them through sobriety but also the whole recovery network. You know wanting that has served me well. I have three three wise women and three wise men and alcoholics anonymous. And when I have problems in that sort of area I go to. And what's great about archrival. dwayne is that all three women will give you the same advice right right like audrey mental give it a role tube writes writes. I would say like in recovery. You have to live a life of feedback from others trustworthy others otherwise you know with addiction and addiction mindset and in trauma. We don't make the best decision makers all the time we need other is on us saying. Hey maybe that's not the best idea or yeah that's a good idea or just someone to listen and move moved through it. We need a council life as on our own. Yeah ourselves will show up and when pride and ego show we do not make good decisions right totally. Yeah I mean we need that definitely so let's kind of I mean we had talked earlier about talking about rock bottom so I I have been really interested in talking to you about that and I think the listeners out there addicted mind you know. I think this would be a good topic for them to understand. What is rock bottom when we say that and someone hasn't heard that what is that me well for rock bottom for me again? A working was a ton of people whether it's spots or clients or even family members. It's to a point to which they have reached their fetal position. Dan Drawn the drapes in the fetal position. You're watching Jerry Springer. You know what I mean by that that can be around a divorce that could be around childhood trauma it could be around a crack addiction or or be a guy who's a barfly right where again. It's the first powerless over blank. And my life has become woman managed. You know that's really the tone for Rachmat is doing things that you said you never do right. Think about that. I would never hang out people like that and it's a lane you're hanging out with people in I would never stick a needle in my arm and suddenly you're sticking on your arm when you do the I.. Nevers and those. I never become a constant. You are in Iraq right and you're alone yeah. Nobody's hanging out with you when you're at your ball right you're alone you're betraying yourself. You're at that moment of like. Yeah what am I doing. This is the worst it could be but I would also say. Sometimes that rock bottom doesn't always he's worked for everybody. Listen we have people who are functioning alcoholics. They don't know how bad they're high functioning drinking or using as S. The kids don't come home for Christmas. You know the wife is in the other room down the hall and they just think because they got the big house in a nice car runs that they don't have a rock version of Rafah right. You know so as helping professionals we're helping professionals one of the things I kind of think about when I'm working with individuals who are struggling with some kind of addiction. It is helping them. If they haven't reached that point of where we're you were saying that willingness right that like okay. I'm ready to do everything helping them in a way. Get to that mental rock bottom. I don't know if that makes sense like this. Is it look at your life like you gotTa do something something you know what I think is one of the cool things about approaching somebody when they're at the rock bottom associated with a nineteen year old. Who's college the parents are in? Shame around a your failure to kid kid clearly as compared to spare you know. We live in instagram world. Where they go John You know? I'm not as big as this. I'm not hanging out the Hamptons and and so what I can say. Rhonda's Nineteen Year old is. Here's where I think you would have the advantage. Parents can't go and help the kid because the kid. Here's this go to your room. You're grounded take stuff from when they were thirteen. Fourteen fifteen years old but someone like you and me can be the big brother or be the fun uncle and deliver the same message saying hey. I'm almost a complete stranger to you but having having been in your same shoes this is where my bottom as you compare your bottom today. Bottom he said look. Let's say play the cheap if you continue you to do the same actions whether it's harming yourself cutting yourself or hang out lower companions the same result and worse is going to happen. So big proponent words play the tape and what's happened is it gives a person a choice which you talked about. Gives him a choice to sit in it. Ha's known a great. Aa Pause Pause ause. And then you can decide. Do I want to continue down that path for more pay or do I want to start something new. And if so I'm supported by family family and friends to start something new and that's the why in the road so actually being able to get them to slow down enough if you can be that person to them like I understand. You know family members might not be able to do that because it just.

"greg champion" Discussed on My Favorite Murder with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark

"Great the neighborhoods canvassed and her friends and family are questioned their eliminated mandated suspects and the first expensive. The investigation are spent on tips that go nowhere and testing of d._n._a. Men and it goes nowhere and fortunately in this town. The average homicide rate is zero to one per year wow but because of that the homes and investigators don't have a ton of experience investigating these kinds of crimes so they're not prepared. They're not experienced. One of the two lead detectives put on the case jared furman who gets like fucking decimated for the story in and so many of the articles he had been a high school parole officer but not pro you know like he had a truancy officer now like a security officer walking around in which is like a fucking noble job nothing wrong with it but then to then go to homicide detective is hard rape to understand okay so he had almost no investigated investigated experience at all. Meanwhile andy's mom carol is like determine it's cold. It's months and months. She's like i'm gonna find leads on my own and she starts to question angie circle of friends and go to the places they all hung out and in january of nineteen ninety seven one of those friends a guy. I'm ben hobbs who was possibly one of the things that he was the last one the last people to see angie alive and there's video of him carrying flowers at his at her funeral aw <hes> so he's like close to her. He gets arrested in nevada on suspicion of brutally raping a woman at knifepoint. Oh no like connection yes right obviously xlii so hobbes denies being involved at all but when police start interviewing hobbes's friends there led to a twenty year old high school dropout named christopher tap he had been a juvenile delinquent in the past seems like he was on the straight and narrow. Maybe just a hang out guy but none of taps d._n._a. Matches with samples taken from the scene or the semen found on angie police ignore this evidence and assume he's involved somehow so over three and a half weeks. Tap is interrogated nine different days for for over thirty hours total. He's given six polygraphs and question for more than forty hours yeah. He's just as skinny twenty year old kid. It doesn't have a high school education. He is not ready to like fucking spar but he like cooperates because he knows he didn't do it yet. So he's cooperating in coming in every time they call him. In so they start worked to lie to chris tap to to get him to confess they tell him that <hes> his his friend invest to the crime he said that that hogshead not only confessed to killing angie but that he had also implicated tap in the murder so they're lying to him and you know and it's videotaped the like which i guess she couldn't do yeah couches so <unk> like crazy they tell him that he had likely suppressed his memory of the incident when he should trust them because they'd be able to prove he was there anyways anyways and he'd get the death penalty he doesn't confess and they and they still take him to trial and find him guilty which they said they could totally do then he's getting the death penalty so oh he might as well start talking and they can offer him immunity. That's what they tell him which they can't do <hes> and they can help him. He'll just go home. It's the second classic story yeah. That sounds like brendan dash yeah. There's a show called the confession tapes on netflix just hard to watch because it's these cases over and and over again it seems like using subterfuge to get a suspect to admit something like a good idea but there should be limited yes the idea that you could suggest asked that someone is repressing a memory yeah and basically fuck with their own like the way their mind work and be like and we have the proof that you're repressing your memory marie. How do you go what if i'm impressing my memory. He says exactly that he's hooked up to the polygraph machines and he's like. I would know if i did it right. I would remember right like he's he. He is he clearly trusts. Here's the thing he went to the same school where <hes> the investigator was the a cop the school so yeah trusted this guy to and he's like why would they wanna frame me. I'm going to work with them. Maybe why would they lie there right. He trusts them. Yes you know so sorry but when you're in that situation you can't do anything else but tell the truth because if you didn't do anything all you can do is keep on repeating being exactly what you know about what you did right introducing the idea that you don't know what you'd be yeah is really fucked exactly and tap trusts furman it because he knew from high school and police interrogators threatened tap with the gas chamber like quote the gas chamber and or life in prison. They attacked his memory summary. They feed him information. Which when you watch the video of it it's ridiculous like they're even like <hes> and that's when you cut her and then he goes and that's when you and like let let him finish cut like it's so fake so they promise immunity and threatened to take it away they pushed aside taps claims of innocence and they offer leniency in exchange exchange for a confession at first kristap denies any involvement but over time he's coerced into telling six different stories which is a red flag on itself. I would think there should be one story. Eventually investigators assured him that if he cooperates in admits he was there he can go free like lie and tell him that so he agrees to cooperate whatever version of events police think happen they feed him the story and he confesses to detectives that he and two friends included not dude hobbs who had been brought in with him had gone dodgers his apartment on the night of her death and that <hes> after fighting with her kristaps says he held her down while his friend killed and raped her <hes> so he just like puts himself there <hes> but neither hobbs nor kristap match the d._n._a. At the crime scene they it doesn't match them. Oh yeah so chris tap than tells. A third tells them third friend who is there. He says he could only remember the name mike like he invents a fucking person. Yeah it's beyond red flag yeah and we're into this is like a mountainside in tibet where it's just red material flapping in the wind everywhere the i can see that's right horrifying refine so this guy hobbs maintains his innocence. He is convicted of this case in nevada rape at night point so let's fucking crazy but he's let go by the idaho falls investigators that even though his d._n._a. isn't at the crime scene and there isn't any other evidence pointing to him police arrest chris tap on his confession and charge him with murder his case goes to trial and nineteen ninety eight where he recounts his confession he pleads not guilty which upsets carol <hes> dodge of course carshield like just distraught <hes> and on and it sounds like they coerce someone else to <hes> to a young woman police had manipulated her into a false testimony claiming she had heard chris tat mentioned his involvement in the murder at a party now the west memphis three ships right. Oh god how they got her or maybe they were like hit. Gotten her on some evidence and this is how she got out of it. Maybe at the trial. He testified that the admission had been coerced and at the d._n._a. Clearly shows does that. He's not the killer but prosecutors withhold videotapes of his confession they only showed little bits and pieces of it that you know cooperate their story right unknown twenty-eighth nineteen ninety eight the jury convicts chris christopher tap of aiding and abetting rape and murder and sentenced to life in prison with a maximum of thirty years and at the time idaho falls this doesn't happen they are freaking out they want and it took a couple of months for them to finally get someone who is like. They said responsible yet. They needed to close this case. It's pressure. I mean it's the story every time is they're always working under massive pressure and the fear that the the community has is when it's a small community and people know who the victim is. Yes yeah that that creates that pressure cooker but but still well. It's just like a as as the people in that position as the authorities along those lines knowing full well you are. You're putting a young man in jail a person in jail bill that is going to be there for the restroom label even though like in in this <hes> keith morrison investigates show when he interviewed them in twenty twelve they won't they won't won't go on camera anymore. We interviewed. They're like they just keep saying look at the tapes. Look the tapes where it's like yeah. We looked at them and they they believe it still owe because they they don't realize they were coercing. They don't realize they were feeding in the story. They didn't understand so they didn't know the procedure. I knew that they in their minds knew that he had done this thing and they were helping hand him to get off his chest.
