That baba's going down or something pulling on the end of that line and Are that's one in even with a new adults and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before and yes. They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah.

That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really.

And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children.

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family.

Those times that we're in those events burn memories that they talk about still in. Those chips are really important with father and a son. I know with my dad. We had an annual trip that we would take to flaming gorge and that always meant the world to me because we'd spend five or six days out on the gorge just fishing and not worrying about all the other stuff you know.

It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it.

You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy.

Corner start getting healthy so. It may be a situation where the cowboys are kind of you know we're GONNA fight and we're GONNA get as best we can until we get healthy and that's not necessarily an excuse that they're giving. It's just this is the way it's gotta be, and we kind of make do a little bit because they are decimated in the secondary. They've had issues at linebacker they've you know had the issues along the offensive line they lost jar when they're starting tight end and So I, mean they've definitely. Had those issues the thing that they don't want. You, you can't really do anything about injuries. You just adapt as best. You can the thing they don't want his they can't have. Three drops and you know two and a half yards per touch from Zeke Elliott. They can't have Jalen Smith missing tackles consistently and still be sixty million dollar guy they can't have. Dak Prescott turning the ball over. They need to have him protecting the ball. They can't have you know some of these. Occasional Amari Cooper focus drops. You expect injuries you deal with those. What you can have is all of that and then along in the secondary, you can't have guys just making really low I q reads and busted covered just stuff that doesn't seem to be a factor of trying to learn a new defense. This just seems like flat out low I q stuff of not recognizing who's assignment is who's You know I think back to Jalen Smith's comment to a about. Throwing it out through a little bit. Maybe they need to simplify the playbook if our fans aren't familiar with that one, let's play that one real quick. People, find beams the defense could innocent the group. Absolutely. Absolutely. I. Believe. Allowing more allowing US more opportunities to Hound in on what? We're actually going to run in in our game plan. I believe it's important. That each and every player knows in and out what they have to do. With a smaller playbook, you you know gives us better opportunity to do that. And like I said this about as growing each and every week. On coaches are the same page, the players on the same page and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better. Each and everyone is that players that aren't capable of learning the playbook or is it possibly too complicated? I don't know but I, got to tell you for all the people that wanted Rod. Marinelli Outta here have been overly impressed with Mike Nolan's defense. Again, injuries are an issue, I mean you lose Gerald McCoy loosely Van Deresh. You lose your to starting Corner Anthony Brown, and Lucy, but even they were healthy in that first game. I didn't think this team look that good. No, and you know it's again it's one of those things where not even a mention he's been healthy for the season but Jordan Lewis missed all the camp. I. Sale. Yeah. Exotic Woods was a big part of your problem last Sunday against the seahawks but I think overall everybody's got to step up. You know it's funny. We had Had the funny line during training camp. When asked him do you think about opting out at all and he said, Nope, contract to your baby and there's a lot of guys back there right now in contractors Jordan Lewis Cheeto you've got exertive your woods is another one. And it's fascinating that they're seeming to have these issues not just with again, the adjustment or or or skill players opposite them it's they're just dropping the ball in terms of. Knowing really basic fundamental stuff that that should have been all ironed out already and and you can say, maybe that's a a an issue with you didn't have some of the same lead up time or some of the same work that you would normally get but everybody had those same sort of issues and and not everybody is having these same sorts of just busted coverage touchdowns. I. Think there's four already on the year that were just left wide open by somebody not knowing an assignment including three last week against the
The First Days: Genesis
"Audience. For Genesis, is crucial and particularly when we get to these first days, we've covered this a little bit already, but it'd be good to just circle back so that we make sure that the audience knows This is who the original audience is for the book of Genesis and so when we're talking about the book of Genesis, we're talking about kind of. Volume one of a five book series called the Pinta toot the first five books of the Old Testament Genesis Exodus Leviticus numbers, deuteronomy these books are entrusted. These words are revealed to Moses who is now the representative rescuer and leader for the people of Israel, and they are getting this revelation on the outside of Egypt. They have been rescued from Egypt they have been brought to Mount Sinai and goddess forming then to take them in to Canaan to the promise land that is the original audience. This is post exodus Israel hearing from y'all way creator of the world. So they're hearing a creation story. That predates them significantly, it goes all the way back not just before their time in Egypt but before father Abraham all the way back back back back to the beginning and why is this crucial for us to understand when we start looking at genesis one through eleven that this is who the original audience is. Yes. So one of the reasons Moses writing is because he wants to prepare that they're in that in between space between they've left and where they're headed and so he writes these first five to give them roots and shoots. He wants to root them in. This is where you came from and he wants to give them shoots. He wants to give them something that will hold them steady. In the place that they're going so it's it's the history and the law is the combination that you're gonNA. See there and we talked about in a previous episode about the sort of the classic worldview questions that that these eleven chapters in particular are asking and answering, and as you pointed out Kyle I think that they're not just asking and answering those questions in a vacuum. So those questions of. Where did I come from? Why am I here what's the problem? What's the solution those questions are being asked and answered within the context of where they came from and where they're headed so that they will understand why Israel is a nation set apart yeah. Yeah. That's really good and so. We the roots and shoots thing is that's very valuable. So the story is not just. Oh, you did. Okay. Great I am I. The only one here is not just add living. GOLLY shoot. Now. Yeah. I think that that's really good in it reminds me of something for end of the show friend friend of ours WHO's taught for us in different environments that roots and shoots. Things reminds me of what Jerry. Jones says jt you're gonNA love this quote. You remember it. If he says, your creation story determines the trajectory of your culture. The. Roots and shoots thing where like. Israel is receiving a creation story and jt through this word out in an earlier episode but it's important I think it's important. To capture this creation story, we could call that a cosmology. COSMOLOGY and they're receiving it in in a world of competing. Creation Stories competing cosmology. Jt isn't that right? Like Israel is not just they're not like Ginseng. Story in a vacuum. They're receiving the story in a world where there are other accounts of how this has happened at yeah. Just back up what is what is cosmos? Like? Why do we have the word cosmology? What does it mean? Are you asking me? Yeah, I'm asking you is used it so you should make him to find it. I don't know if he can but I'm pretty sure you know I'm just getting. Yeah. I mean it's just talking about the. Creation of the cosmos of the world like it's it's just a fancy way of talking about the creation account and how to make sense of who is the Creator? What is the creation? What is the purpose of the crater creation relationship? You'd say, yeah, absolutely I mean, in some ways, cosmology would be like theology cosmos is the world the Earth, right? So it's like study of the World Study of the Earth Account of the world words about the world whereas theology is words about God's when we're talking about cosmology or cosmology as we're talking about words about the world, the account of creation or how things came to. Be.
The Real Reason NFL Ratings Are (Slightly) Down
"So Dan. Let's start the story back in June is been ten days since George Floyd was brutally murdered. To actually. Listen to you. We had this prominent NFL players put out that video about black lives matters. Behalf. Football League. This is what we the players would like to state. Leave black lives matter. And then Commissioner Roger Goodell doing what the players had requested. We the National Football League emit we wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League Aleve black lives matter was their concern within the NFL at that time about the league. So openly embracing the black lives matter movement and concern that it could impact. TV ratings when the season began I think without a doubt. There was concern commissioner goodell made that video without consulting the owners many of whom in the past taken a hard line on kneeling intertwining politics, social issues and sport. We have more on the story that is dominating the National Football League the anthem protests Jerry Jones was Adam Sunday that any player that does not stand for the national. Anthem will not play Jones clarified that statement telling our Chris sentiment within the NFL that good for business is no intersection of politics and sports. Now that boat seems to have clearly have sailed not just in the NFL, but the rest is sport but I would be surprised if ratings fall, we don't begin to hear some voices from within the NFL saying we've gone too far on opening. Night of the season, the chiefs versus Texans, we saw players link arms in a moment of Solidarity Ladies and gentlemen please join us in a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight or equality in our country, and we've seen a number of players putting names of victims of police brutality on their helmets. What's bend the public response to those moves? Obviously in Kansas City there was some booing. Depending on which media outlet you read it was either a lot of booing or a little booing. But there was some booing and interviewing the fans who booed it's hard to know why whether they disapproved of the message whether they disapproved adjust anything interfering with sports but there will always be that voice saying we don't want is social issues politics intersect was fort. So after week one, there were reports that NFL ratings were down though it turns out those reports weren't entirely accurate and a whole bunch of analysis followed, Dan, what was some of the commentary around those early reports were obviously in a politically charged Environment, and there are those who want to scribe lower sports ratings to the political movements that have intersected with sports. So you saw headlines and certain conservative publications woken NFL ratings down sixteen seventeen percents the doubleheader on Monday night football, the Sunday night football game, the Thursday night kickoff game those were down monstrously large over last season. Why is that to me? The answer is pretty simple. My hypothesis is when you get woke, you go broke but everybody in this environment of trump versus bite in republican versus Democrat. Every wants to interpret sports ratings through that Lens football's boring as hell, it's just not the same pattern. Used to. Say could you keep it away from football game? Now say, could you possibly do it during football game? We have some free time when really the reasons for ratings rise and fall have very little to do in my opinion with the political news of the day.

Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

Dallas Cowboys Players Consider Kneeling During National Anthem As Season Opener Approaches
"Has been one of the more vocal owners about how he feels about the national anthem. Do we know if there's any sort of plans for the Cowboys players to do any sort of demonstration? During the games when they start up this coming weekend. Oh don Terry Poe, who they signed in March, their defensive tackle who? Obviously with Carolina. Ah, he has said that he plans to Neal. And so if he does, that will be the first player that the Cowboys have had that that has Neil during the national anthem. They did Neil together as a team before the national anthem Ah, few years back before they played the Cardinals in Arizona, and then they all stood together when they are handsome started. And so, but this is a different Jerry Jones. Now he hasn't mean he'll tell you. He obviously wants all of the players to stand at his stance. That's how he's always been. He's probably been the most vocal about that of any NFL owner, Maybe any owner of sports But you can tell that he is more understanding now than ever. He understands what's going on in the country. And he you know, he's more is the word he keeps using his grace. I'm gonna have great And in that way, almost another standing of where before it was thought. Hey, if you kneel during the anthem, your doubt cowboys player you're playing. I'm gonna have a job next week. Because this is like this is a line you just can't cross with Jerry Jones. I don't see that happening now you've seen ah lot more understanding to it now. He knows that you know that. Obviously there's going to be. He's going to hear backlash from fans, cowboy fans that that don't believe any players should ever kneel during the anthem. But He is adamant lately. He just wants to deal with it with grace and an understanding on seeing both sides and that just completely different than what we had heard from Jerry Jones, you know, last year and even 23 years ago.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects fans to attend home games
"For Jerry Jones to declare he's gonna have fans attended two Cowboys games this season because most states have rules preventing gatherings at stadiums and most owners don't want those headaches anyway. Most of the NFL's riches come from their TV mega deal as long as games or on television there Swimming and Scrooge McDuck money picks But the heart of Texas things are different. FC Dallas just held in MLS game last night with a few 1000 Fans. They all had to sign a waiver, saying they could not sue. They contracted covert there. Jerry could pull this off if he really wanted to. It's an enormous stadium with a vast array of luxury suites, private areas and entrances. For the question is, Does the NFL think it's worth the headaches for 1000 fans? I doubt it.
Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Says He Will Show ‘Grace’ On Kneeling During Anthem
"Seven o'clock right now Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones talking about how he's gonna handle players who wish to kneel during the national anthem as a way to protest Social injustice this season. Now, you knew the question was going to be among the first asked it yesterday's news conference. Probably it was the first question he But he didn't have any rials. Solid answer for about it. But he did say he's focused on showing his players Grace and I want to have grace regarding the people that are sensitive about our flag. Somewhere in between. There is the weeks as we get together with our team, as we discussed with the thing somewhere in between, there is how we're gonna handle it. So no firm decision at this point previously had said that Nobody on his team would be allowed to kneel during the national anthem, but that was in 2017. And, as he said yesterday, he said, quote that was then and this is now so we don't know. But it sounds like he might be leaning a little bit of making some changes, and we'll have much more of what Jerry had to say. Coming up in Cliff Notes
"jerry jones" Discussed on The Darren Smith Show
"Been. Has Anybody heard from Jerry Jones. I remember when the Commissioner Roger Goodell put out that video statement where he echoed the sentiments of many NFL players in the aftermath of the George Floyd murder. That we all sort of said well. Let's let's see what Jerry has to say. Because you know. Jerry is obviously a very influential owner. And that was early June now or the second week of July to my knowledge I, think Jerry's been pretty quiet, but Michael may have missed a an appearance or speaking engagement from Jerry Jones. Jerry Jones speaks a lot generally speaking he during the season has a regular period twice a week here in Dallas. After every game he's speak to reporters in the locker room, or just outside of it He's in every meeting within the cowboys, the cowboys whole coaching staff just about these extremely extremely involved in all things, team and league. He's been dead silent as it relates to black lives matters as it relates to racial inequality in this country is down to relates to Kobe nineteen There haven't been any however charitable. The cowboys have been over the course of you know. Jerry's ownership they haven't had some high profile. donation released to the scale that we would usually associated with it with franchise and so You know what you've heard from the team. Is You know they're? Monitoring things and you want you don't WanNa. Just make a statement for the sake of making statement or you don't. WanNa make a donation. That you know, is it strategically? Placed you know, we'll make sure going in the most impactful direction as possible, but we're you know several months now into to spend make, and we are very deep into hopefully will prove to be a time of true impactful change and the. Of Quote Unquote, America's team has been totally totally silence, and so that silent is extremely noticeable. Relative to WHO Jerry Jones usually is on seemingly all matters pertaining to the NFL. So nothing. Because I had wondered here on the show and I know I'm not alone in wondering how Jerry felt when he saw Roger Goodell talk about how they mishandled that situation. with regards the social justice and social injustice in the United.

"If that is your preferred outlet now Look the Ocho is a daily podcast. You know we give you kind of the latest headlines in cowboys land and sometimes got a record a little bit earlier and you know gotta just for life and whatnot. And so we recorded Tuesday's episode before the Libron News and look the last dance finished airing on Sunday. Something that Tony and I talked about with Charles Haley and I think a lot of people that follow the NBA closely. We're waiting for how Lebron would respond to you know potentially try to Put some attention back on on him. I don't know just these are things people have said and on you know on Monday night are excuse me. Monday night Time is just you time on Monday night. Lebron was online on uninterrupted Kind of talking about you know a variety of things and obviously the NBA's suspended right now and talked about the two thousand eleven NBA lockout. And how at the time of it? He was considering just alternative options. And obviously everybody knows. Lebron James Played football in high school and was very good and then ultimately went to the NBA and became one of the greatest players of all time. And he's talked about how he's had some dreams before etc and Maverick Carter. Who's very close to Lebron said? Something very interesting at the end of the interview and Well Watch just check it out for yourself. Not but I know. He got a contract from Jerry. Jones that he framed and putting his off so Jerry Jones. Apparently I don't know if we can say offered Lebron contract or gave Lebron contract But at the very least Lebron James Seemingly according to Maverick Carter has a contract from Jerry. Jones framed in his office now for four context. Here Lebron is a very huge cowboys. Fan Very very public cowboys. Fan Very famous cowboys fan. Obviously and he's been on the sideline at. At and T. Stadium we put some social images up on our social channels With some of the more famous photos of Lebron in a cowboys cap and whatnot. And so maybe that was more ceremonial than anything. I just I don't really think that There was legitimacy to Jerry Jones giving or offering Lebron contract or just kind of seemed like This'll be cool type thing but for what it's worth. This was the two thousand eleven. Nba Lockout. You might remember that very well. And The Dallas Cowboys. Pass catchers wide receivers and tight ends of prominence in two thousand eleven. A lot of people have suggests that if Lebron did play in the NFL it would be as some sort of tight end. Potentially this the cowboys are working with. If you know if you think maybe Lebron could have been part of that crew Dez Bryant and for what it's worth two thousand eleven Dez more season as this was pre blow up Dez. All right does really stormed onto the scene in the second half of two thousand twelve really kept it up through two thousand thirteen and then two thousand fourteen was sort of the peak of Dez Bryant at his powers so two thousand eleven days was not the Dez. You're thinking of Miles Austin in two thousand eleven The two thousand eleven version of Miles Austin is the one that lost the ball in the lights against the New York giants on December eleventh. We talked about that last year with that Valentine not fun. Times Laurent Robinson. Oh yeah that's right baby Laurent Robinson who got posed nude by the Jacksonville. Jaguars Kevin Tree and And Jesse Hawley rounds out the wide receiver group for the two thousand Eleven Dallas Cowboys of course at tight end Jason. Witten part of that. Rotation really kind of just the rotation and then Martellus Bennett. Who could ever forget Mardi? Btv and John Phillips so I don't know if and I know that we're not in the weeds but we're into a really deep hypothetical at this point but the point is if the cowboys could not properly utilize Martellus Bennett. I don't know how they would have utilized even Lebron James but it would have been cool. It would have been fun So whatever value putting that. Hey you know a good good for Lebron. I suppose that would have been cool. I think that would have been interesting at very least certainly had Lebron James Become a member of the Dallas cowboys but Yeah it is what it is but I don't know if he would have been starter right. Maybe not probably not definitely not and It is the time of year were different outlets are putting together Starting not really starting but predicted starter. Lists we're starting to see that kind of pop up all the national outlets starting to put the predicted starters for every team and obviously that includes the Dallas cowboys. Now we wrote about this. It'd be TB NFL DOT coms list projected starter for the Dallas cowboys. Of course all the obvious ones Dak. Prescott Zeke Elliott Amari Cooper Michael..

"Jason Mcintyre in for Colin who. I guess partied really hard last night. He told me he would be listening this morning though. Hope everybody at a safe phenomenal New Year's Eve My parents always love to joke that Jason New Year's Eve amateur hour in never want to go out on New Year's Eve. So what did I do. I started New Year's Eve by playing eighteen holes of golf. Yes something I had not done. Jeez probably eight or nine in years. It was a little taxing. My back is hurting this morning but always look love to try. New Things ended the year with a bang and today. Oh boy we got. It's a Fireworks Ladies and Gentlemen Couple Bowl Games. Although I will rue the demise of New Year's Day College football remember when it mattered when there were like like eight bowl games on New Year's Day just sat there flipping the channel. That's no more. There's just four games today and they aren't even really good which means you'll probably be listening to the show so we got a lot today. Couple of great guests to break down the chaos of the NFL. Coaching Carousel We all wait with bated breath on Jerry Jones to make a decision on Jason Garrett. I play a lot of Texas holdem with my buddies. And I like to say a poop or get off the pot and Jerry Jones. Come on what are we waiting for. You know. I can't imagine a scenario where Jones keeps Garrett but again folks we're talking about about a seventy seven year old billionaire. You know. This is a guy who loves the attention and there was no way he was gonna fire Garrett or part ways with Kierra whatever you WANNA call it. He was never going to do that on black Monday. Jerry Jones needs his own special time for that he needs the attention and all the focus on him. I've got a mind blowing. NFL playoff stat. That you have to listen to. It's coming up in about eleven or twelve minutes I know the heard audience loves to gamble. This is the most important stat for wild card. Weekend I will give that to you shortly and finally got some great advice for Baker Mayfield. I recently signed my third grader. Ah for Jujitsu and I sit on the classes. I bring my computer and I watch and make sure you know. He's having fun and the the Jujitsu teacher are offered an amazing pearl of wisdom. That's GONNA apply to Baker Mayfield. I know you guys saw the video from the bengals game so stick around for that but I I want to start the show here. You guys are aware of what happened in Cleveland this week right. Obviously Freddie Kitchens gets dusted there's a parting of the ways with the general manager. But what the media's not telling you is that the nerds are taking over football and I'm not saying that in a bad way. That's not a derisive. Ace of word. NERD is cool. I love to nerd out now. Okay whether it's College Football Bowl Games. NFL drafts whatever. Vert is being a nerd. Now is cool. It means. You're probably pretty smart right. It means you're maybe rich or building some wealth. And there's a decent chance if you're a nerd. You're you're dating and instagram model. Because that's kind of how the Internet works right now listen. I don't think I could have built a website sold it and then pivoted to radio on TV. If I hadn't nerd out on sports so there's nothing wrong with being a nerd but the nerds folks right now are taking over football and the football guys. They're kind of being shown the door. That's what happened in Cleveland. The story behind the story is show me the analytics. And if you don't I'm gonNA show you the door. And what went down Cleveland. This is going to be a thing moving forward in the NFL. We've already seen the nerds takeover baseball okay and again being a nerd. That's cool sabermetrics. Hello they made a movie called money ball which was phenomenal okay. It flipped baseball on its head and analytics politics have taken over baseball. Anybody who's playing baseball right now. At a high level in the majors is winning because of sabermetrics analytics really spreadsheet baseball. Now you can argue whether or not. That's that's good for the sport. That's another discussion but the nerds of one out and then you look to the NBA. Right now folks. It's a three point or a layup. That's what the efficiency numbers say. That's what the robots and the computers are telling teams shoot. Three's shoot layups layups. Don't do the mid range we'll pull you out of a game if you shoot a mid range jumper. I actually went to the Lakers. Mavericks Game Sunday night out here in. La and You know you get. If you get the media credential you get to go on the court beforehand and I'm there with a A guy who works at a rival network. He's a big gambler. And we're courtside. And Jared Jared Dudley and the Lakers are warming up. And I know Jared Dudley a little bit 'cause he came through F s one and I talked to him And if you guys listen to my Saturday radio show On Fox Sports Radio Radio. You know I'm a sponge when anybody coach player. GM owner comes through the building. So I got to be friendly with Jared Dudley and he comes over damps me up on on the baseline and talk a little bit about the NBA and the holidays. And my buddy says to jared Dudley. Hey I saw you working on your floater. You floater game needs. Some work worked. Say Jokingly and Jared Dudley of the Lakers says who cares about the floater. It's all three layups baby. That's what analytics has done to the the NBA again. We can discuss if that's good or bad but hello Golden State Warriors. Hello Houston Rockets. Not In the playoffs but analytics is taking get over baseball and the NBA. Football's kind of pushback. However the Cleveland Browns Front Office debacle this year it all came down to analytics versus the football guy? Okay now guess who survived in Cleveland. The analytics guy who just happens to be Paul Depot Desta if you saw moneyball which I referenced earlier he was the guy that Jona Hill played very nerdy very very by the book. Okay this is a guy who went to Yale. He's a slave to numbers. He survived in Cleveland. The football guy. John Dorsey Lifelong football guy. He got dusted folks. If you're not on board with the analytics if you're not on board with it's spreadsheet football and the algorithms that make up all the stuff you're in trouble okay. John Dorsey was football lifer I I looked him up just to get some background on John. Dorsey the browns. Gm who got fired and this guy was an Alpha football player who played linebacker for four years drafted by the the packers. Okay gets a job as a college scout is in the Mike Holmgren tree or family. If you will. Mike Coleman leave Sir Seattle John Dorsey he goes to Seattle with and then he goes back to Green Bay ends up in Kansas City. But what happened in Kansas City to football guy it was a bad communicator. There was a story that They ended up cutting Jeremy macklin a wide receiver and John. Dorsey did that by leaving him. A Voice Mail Great Communication John Dorsey. Anyway he comes to Cleveland and bills. It's amazing roster and this time last year right. The browns had finished strong long in the regular season Baker. Mayfield look good okay. And then they add Odell Beckham and everybody says this is one of the most talented rosters in the league if you Google most talented rosters in the NFL in two thousand nine hundred the browns are top. Ten heading into the season built by a football guy. So what happened this season. Well the Brown did not do very well okay. They had a ton of talent undeniable but their coach was abysmal. Okay and Baker Mayfield regressed. They lost a lot of games. So season comes to an end in the owner. Big Money Guy. He's got a decision I just want to make. Do I stick with the football guy. John Dorsey who built this awesome roster or do I stick with the analytics guy who loves a good spreadsheet and he says he was successful in baseball. Okay if you've seen moneyball hey deeper desta and the as built something awesome. Didn't win a world series. But he did very well went to the dodgers. Turn them around and like one year they hadn't been to the playoffs. I think in like sixteen years depot Desta thirty-one-year-old GM. I'm not being mean calling him inert already guys nerdy and guess what he wins instantly so this guy has been crowned and this is where we're headed in sports. Okay if you guys follow me on twitter her instagram and all this stuff you know. I'm big on gambling. The biggest thing I learned this year and I'm doing the gambling guy at F S. What I do these videos for college and NFL picks all the time Go unlock it in the gambling. Show episodes all in on gambling and the biggest thing I learned in sports gambling in twenty nine thousand nine was if you don't have an algorithm or a model. You're going to be in some trouble. I'm not saying you're throwing darts but unless you've got a machine behind you trust me the Vegas sports books they all do. You're going to be in some trouble the analytics the robots are taking over folks so the Cleveland. Oakland Brown's decide. Well I go with the football guy or the analytics guy and you know what made browns owner. Jimmy has limbs decision a lot easier. He looked in his division. And did you guys notice what happened in Baltimore. I'm sure you guys aware Lamar Jackson and the Ravens Best Team in the league super bowl favorite now. But what's the story behind the story in Baltimore well this year. John Harbaugh the coach of the Ravens. who was on the hot hot seat last year? Remember with flacco struggling. He brought in a twenty five year old Yale graduate. Who Majored in Behavioral Economics? Okay a twenty five year old Yale graduate to make all of the fourth down decisions all of them. How do you think that worked? They just GONNA ask cash. How do you think it worked out fourth down for the Baltimore Ravens in the twenty five year old Yale Grad? Wow Look at the Baltimore. Ravens were the best fourth down team in the NFL. Seventy percent conversions. Ladies and gentlemen they hire a nerd from Yale he bangs it out on the spreadsheet. What are the analytic say? Go here. Don't go there the Baltimore. Ravens had the most fourth down conversions in the NFL. This year. Seventeen there were seventeen and twenty four seventy percent the robots are coming for the NFL. The robots are coming. They're they're winning and it's not a negative that this is happening. I just want a lot of football is to wake up out there. You've got to get.

"Michigan span base is all because i've been good for one hundred giants cornerstone franchise n._f._l. And let me tell you something. The those old fans defended eli to the end and they would call and complain about benching him. They're not gonna call anymore. If daniel jones i mean everybody's talking about how good he looked now. The players are the worst case scenario for the giants and pat shurmur. Daniel jones have the preseason that he had because he had looked iffy or like he wasn't ready and you would feel comfortable okay. He needs a year to sit behind eli. Maybe at the end of the year. If it's a disaster you start getting them out there against some reps but this is the worst case scenario where the team is behind it and he looked good and and the fans are going to be watching to see does finally the cowboys are still stocked with her three top opposite players looking for new deal. L. seeks been holding out of camp and zach amari were bennett camp but they're going to open contract extensions for them are open to contract incentives for them even when the season begins ends but when asked about how he is working to get these deals done jerry jones admitted that he prefers to deal directly with the players when when you cut out people in between the money and the player we all know that agents attorneys all have their agenda by the way they're all taking money yeah the pie too when they're there and so the straighter it goes from the source to the one receiving nine times more official court of course there's more fun of course jerry wanted agent course. It's also not legal so this is from an anonymous n._f._l. Agent he said the team team that is notorious for trying to go around the agent going right to the player and getting the player to believe hey. It's better to be a dallas cowboy and take less money here in this case the differences ezekiel elliott and even dak and amari cooper. They're not buying it. Maybe jerry jones is starting to get a little frustrated because some of his old tricks aren't working so dealing directly with players who are represented by agents agents violates the c._p._a. It also violates federal label labor laws. You have representation. You can't go around them. Obviously we could all jerry admitted did he. He does this. You know here's the thing is that it is illegal and you and i both had a and both had bosses. It's one of those things that's illegal but companies still have a way of letting you know things are getting uncomfortable and they have certain budgets every i mean it's like this is why jerry by the way goes out and talks publicly match his way of connecting with the player through eliminating the agent just come out and talk about that piping and that's probably another reason that zeke's six agent has him far far away from jerry and far away from the team because he knows i'm joe. Johns can be very compelling. Everyone talks about how charming and great jerry is at what he does. I mean he is the best where he does. That's why he's jerry jones. I bet you zeke's agent has him at a hotel that doesn't get american television and when they asked you to u._s._a. Today in the morning no we don't want we don't want to u._s._a. Eh today delivered to our komo hotels him bunker down. I mean this does make perfect sense and obviously like you said if he's a company or jerry jones working working directly with the player. You're going to be able to influence more. That's why people hire agents. That's why you pay them because they get to be the bad guy and they know all the ins and outs of how these contracts were right so <hes> <hes> good luck with that but it could be why he's frustrated because that is an easy way to get things done and jerry jones joined with the news well. That's the news and thanks. I heard peter. King is gonna join us in about five minutes. I was talking about schedules and i said that the patriots are amazing but they do get a scheduling break because they go five and one in their division evasion that gives them a buying a home field advantage in the playoffs..

"Visit in the preseason people love that stuff and he will be joining us in the one hour from now joy taylor. It's here as always joy. How are you great good morning. Good morning everybody so <hes> the cowboy hold out. Those two holdouts do great running backs the one with the chargers in the woman. The cowboys not a shocker the biggest brand in the n._f._l. The cowboys the one getting all the press zeke is considered better than melvin gordon but this is what it happens when you're the cowboys. Every holdout becomes the story in the n._f._l. We've had two huge stories before the season starts. Andrew luck's retirement zeke's holdout are the top two by a mile and jerry jones first time sort of hinted that they may start the season without ezekiel elliott which i've been saying for months. Now i am okay. Hey with this. I am okay with this. I think it's smart for a lot of reasons. I'll get to those reasons next but here's jerry. We may very well apply without a player that is not coming in on his contract. If that's the case we just play and we'll play. We'll play well. We've got a marathon here and we won't zeke when we get to the playoffs. We won't zeke when we're in the dog days of this season as you well know you have to plan your personnel and you you have to <hes> manage a player <hes> the caliber of zeke. We have to be prepared to play without any given player okay so the two cowboy contracts that we really deeply care about our zeke. That's the most important because he's holding out and number two is dak. We like to keep that number thirty to thirty five thirty six. You can kill two birds with.

Jones is an on twitter and WH- Somebody Asks Jerry a few years ago. Why are you not on twitter? He had the best answer he goes. I like the fact of deniability he goes. He goes if I have every one of my comments on twitter. I can't deny it because I like to be able to deny stuff. I'd say that I didn't do daddy goes to twitter and I don't want myself out there that much well Jerry Jones yesterday today. Sit Down Interview. He picked a station. He picked a person he said. I'm going to do a one on one interview Nice. Shea Jerry's got the cowboy hat on. He's got the branding already. This was very classic. Jerry make sure you can see the cowboy logo. It's a one on on one interview. There's nice shade the cameras all tied. It's just Jerry and he had a message to deliver to one Ezekiel Elliott. You don't have to have a rushing champion to win. A Super Bowl but Emmett was the first one to do it and that's one of the dilemmas at running back is that the League knows that you can win super bowls and not have the Emmett Smith back. There are not have Z. back there consequently Bentley when we are looking and putting Zeke's contract in place. We've got to realize that the ultimate goal is to win the Super Bowl okay join. I have been in T._v.. Too Long. That interview was not your typical training camp interview. Jerry had a cowboy hat and a cowboy shirt. The lighting was perfect for an older gentleman the tree behind it wasn't so serene it was serene and calm Jerry pick that spot and the logo to deliver a one.

"I just think that this is a backwards way over protest situation give the guy the security, and they say go flex, and if you don't like and not giving him the security because he doesn't wholeheartedly believe in Jason Garrett is the players, but it get myself. I think the difference is the Dallas dynamic and cultures different. I don't think Jason geared ever the gotta flex the gather does all the flexing Jerry Jones. And so when a player books up it's going to be Jerry, the goes, insist down and talks to him and Jerry has that kind of relationship with players like, hey, man, we're all in on two thousand nineteen we're trying to be in the two thousand twenty Super Bowl. And we can't have this. You know, what I've done for you. You know, we're trying to do. And he's got Zeke in his hip pocket. He stood behind Z in his darkest hour. He. He has stood behind back when the whole media everybody thinks this guy isn't a franchise quarterback. He's got the two most important guys then he's got offense lineman. That's where they've invested their money offense. And they we in about this ain't Pittsburgh. So and then what what TJ said the what does he have some problematic? Maybe DeMarcus Lawrence Rainey, Gregory, some problem children on the defensive line. I think he feels like they can handle that with that coach Chris Rashard and rod Marinelli. I just think the dynamics in Dallas are different and Jerry has so much leverage over the players that he does need to put a gun to Jason geared. And like, hey, man, you got to perform football's a great game of skill greater game. Will you just cut off a lot of the buying a lot of players not gonna have the same by with a coach that the owner I like Kelly Moore to coordinate or he's going to do. Well.

"For twenty percent off at Jerry Jones. I, this is really interesting yesterday. So Jerry he was talking about, you know there, there's roughing the passer penalties or that every year we have like a rule and people freak out in for a couple years. It was the catch rule that in preseason it was the was the helmet rule call. Now everybody's freaking out about the quarterback calls the roughing. The passer calls in Jerry Jones went on Dallas radio. He doesn't love anything. The NFL should be more physical. He had this to say. Our future is I see a real serious emphasis own of youth football, amateur football essay reflected at the high school level. And I see a collegiate game that certainly has a lot of finesse in it, but is a great game and makes these kinds of adjustments we're talking about. But when it comes to pro football to use a boxing term, that's when you put the six outs club so you don't rob fight with those ten outs or are you don't fight with those head years. Everybody's being really paid to go out and incur those type situations that have more risk at him. If I very interesting quote, basically, Jerry says, once you get paid millions of dollars, part of the deal is you take more hits and that it's more physical and you get hurt more at the NFL letter level, but it it's funny, it does. Sound. I think there that's how he sees the NFL. You're not going to get paid in college. You're not going to get paid in high school. But once you get the NFL you put the big boy gloves on this. No headgear for boxing. This is where we pay you to get hurt. I don't know how that land for a lot of people, but that's what he's saying. But the other thing is what I notice in pro football, and I think it's I see more and more. It's the opposite is that Bill Parcells used to always say as an NFL coach, I can only do with what college gives me. And if you look at right now, the leaders in the NFL on some of the most explosive offenses, they're using college offenses, the Philadelphia Eagles Kansas City Green Bay Carolina. By the way, Cam having a very good year right now, they're using what they call run pass option. That's college stuff. RPO's sound real tricky. It's not. It's basically the quarterback runs there. Some option stuff run pass option. That's a college offense. The flow of information now goes from. College to pro football. When I watch the NFL now I see college football all over it. When I watch college football, I don't see pro football over it. The tunnel has shifted that the NFL is now copying college football, and by the way, college football is getting more RPO friendly, which is college now takes the best athlete and put him at quarterback, the kid in Alabama. They take the best athlete, will that what's going to the NFL is guys that can run it used to be the best compliment. You could give a college football quarterback. This was the best thing you could say. He plays in a pro style offense in college. Nobody cares even the big twelve now to Sean compla- Baker compla-. So it's just the template in Jerry Jones is is, is worthy NFL? This is how the game should be played, and the other stuff is amateur. And when you get here, you got to change your game. But when. I.

"News quote, I made the presentation. You can see how I did. And quote Jones actually believed that a longer regular season in the shorter training camp preseason, we're result of fewer, not more concussions. He says, quote, I can make the case that we have an uptick in concussions. In the preseason Jones said, if you look at it, I would contend there would be less exposure. There also would be more money a lot more money. It will provide more than one billion dollars to the players. Jones said, it's certainly worth considering it would direct more value for what the plans expend to the players. Laser gentlemen. Grab a hold of your seat belt. I one thousand percent agree with Jerry Jones. The preseason should be lessened the regular seasons should be extended. And as far as I'm concerned, and as a simple reason. When you out there is a football player, it's costing you anyway. Practice on that turf cutting, jabbing, tackling, etc. You're putting yourself through the physical exertion anyway. You do it in any anyway. So if that's what you're going to do, why don't you do it when the games count. And if there's more money because the regular season games are obviously worth more to preseason games and you're jeopardizing your health, your well being in your career during preseason and practice. Why not minimize practice? Why not minimize preseason games, and if it dilutes the product to some degree, they sentiment that's only the first few weeks of the season. That's only the first few weeks of the season. So what you got to look at guys look a little bit sloppy. So what you gotta look at guys not look. You know, like their a games are there with them. So what. The games should count more often eighteen game season. Then you got you got people that I know they don't believe that they believe do away with the preseason. Keep the sixteen games. Gonna have to buy weeks in the season and probably extend e a playoff team in each conference to eight games as opposed to six nam opposed to that. Opposed to that. I'm saying, you know, make the regular season eighteen games, make the regular season count that much more. But in the same breath, you're not really jeopardizing anyone from an extra perspective because, again, ladies and gentlemen that jeopardizing themselves anyway, when they practice this is football. So almost like boxing, you ain't shadowboxing if somebody is punching you upside the head just because in front of a live audience or pay per view, doesn't mean you ain't getting knocked upside. Joe. So if you gotta go through and endure this stuff anyway, you might as well make it count more. Have more money thrown into the coffers of all of that and call it a day. That's what you might as well do this. What I would do. I'm wouldn't hesitate. This is a no brainer. Jerry Jones is one thousand percent correct on this issue. Plain and simple. The procedure should be completely eradicated as far as okay, but if you wanna keep it two weeks, fine. But outside of that, let's get down to these games. Baby eighteen games AT games I completely and wholeheartedly agree with Jerry Jones. Y'all got me a green with Jerry Jones for crying out loud. Edit eight. Say ESPN it's editing seven to nine three, seven, seven, six. I completely agree with this man when he's right. He's right. On a different subject. That's far more sensitive. I wanted to transition before we go to break to something that's on my mind because yesterday. On my television show. I take on ESPN. Are we discussed the topic of Tiger Woods talking about respecting the office of the presidency. And obviously because there's a lot of vitriol out there towards our president commander in chief. There are people that while Paul by what Tiger Woods had to say. I was not one of those people. Although I will openly confess. That although the black community support off Tiger Woods as a golfer is evident because we don't root against him. There is a collective level of discuss. Due to his on willingness to recognize his quote unquote blackness from years ago when he called himself. Keble Asian, whatever. I think that's what it is, what it was. And people had a problem with that. So when you hear him speak on social issues when you hear him speak on anything other than golf, you kind of have a raised eyebrow towards anything that comes out of Tiger Woods mouth..

"What he defended easy q elliot's so now it's a problem he's the feeling his player what's wrong with an owner stan enough whereas players he's not supposed to do that and what i'm fearful of or what i would be fearful of our over the lee they're gonna make jerry jones a sympathetic trigger because again i think it goes to tjx point if if he's been fine because he was too vigorous in his defence of ezekiel elliott that's called play re that's what play real world with the players jerry jones is defensive ezekiel elliott in the player's mind and maybe some object to people's mine was something to be applauded and if this is any part of why he's being fine i think the ownership that is pushing roger goodell to do this this could backfire on them and make jiri a sympathetic for could i make the argument who were the two people goodell 's been toughest on the patriots and the cowboys this is coming from the other owners there is resentment among the other owners and by the way jerry is not the only guy that pays roger goodell roger robert kraft is it this feels like rogers feeling heat saying the patriots are in the super bowl again ritz move of those football's jerry gets more plugged in every but he sues so so we have to pay all his bills this steals again you're gonna marinade on this tonight this feels like a bunch of owners resenting craft crashed now rockstar jerry's a rock rockstar in america this sounds like to your point jealous billionaires of those two owners jerry's already in the hall of fame and i could see some other nfl owners say.

"I mean i like you just can't okay i i think you have a hard time selling tear team that you're trying to win are we tweet base if you if you go back to them now that's all one other thing i want to get to before you go and this is sort of came up as we were setting up topics and we talked about it over the last few weeks i just wanna hit it here with you guys know are you guys are going to be in a car wednesday going wherever for the holiday and so this is going to be a big talker over the next few days jerry jones did tell usa today's joerg bell that he will not be suing the nfl if the compensation committee goes forward with the new contract for roger goodell in particular he won't be suing those individual owners who are on the compensation committee that's arthur blank bob mcnair bob kraft clark on art rooney and john mehra and so that's a good positive sign what will be interesting now to see is whether or not the compensation committee your exercise is is the power that they've been granted by the other owners to move forward and close a deal uh or if they will honour jerry jones's request which is to have an open discussion before they finalize the deal among all of the owners so this dances in over but does feel at least to some degree of the rhetoric spent toned down a little bit and needs to be because it's can overshadow a great month of december football where there is going to be awesome playoff races and it's going to cloud the playoffs and i think as they found out in deflate gate in some of the other issues that the nfl's had to deal with leads finally cleared the way for the discussion to be just about football for two months the nfl really truly needs right now they need from thanksgiving to the end of the super bowl to be as clean as it can be so they were not talking about the all fields.

"Like that is that is the flashpoint four jerry jones i a few notes here that i want wanna point out one no matter what you is a football fan thank of roger goodell this would be really bad for the sport and for the league if this if jerry jones gains any traction with this or jerry jones is successful in this because you can't i understand the coverage league's most popular team the most discussed team they're the most polarizing team they cannot be disproportionately so the most powerful team no matter what you think of goodell i do not think people believe he is tipping his finger on the scales when it comes to the competitive nature of the sport and he if anything else he seems to hold some of the stars and start franchises to a higher standard we saw tom brady go through that we're now seeing ezekiel elliott go through that now i don't know if you're holding zeke to a higher standard of the regular center but regardless he is not playing favorites amongst the teams and if jerry jones were already has outsized influence if this were to be successful it would be the cowboys league and that's not right that's not good for fans in kansas city or in jacksonville or in houston or in los angeles like we don't want that to happen right now cc tell me if i'm wrong there's about six owners that have they are kind of the upper crust of ownersh yes does always been a group that was kind kinda that led the nfl in they gave a lot of information and had influence on the other owners it's the hunt family yes jerry jones tomorrow's it's the row it's craft it's bob mcnair seems to have elevated himself within it the rooney's like that is those six teams in those six owners i'm okay with that 'cause you always need kind of a power structure i'm not okay with one team or one owner being at the top of the class but my final point on this one could sisi i'm curious your thoughts on it.
