San Francisco 49ers trade up for the No. 3 pick

"The forty niners trade up to number three overall in the twenty twenty one draft. This was shocking. News to me. Came out right after my episode released on saturday or on friday after i sent over my episode but i normally just was not expecting Draft news to come this early. I feel like most years. The draft news comes a lot closer to the draft is still three or four weeks away but the forty niners did in their aggressive so they traded the twelfth overall. Pick a twenty twenty two third round compensatory pick and first round picks in twenty twenty two and twenty two thousand three for the miami dolphins number three overall selection so the dolphins moved to twelve where the four nine were previously listed. And now the forty niners move up to three. So what does this mean. First of all they swap a total of three first round picks. Is that smart to do. I think it is if they liked the guy. If they're convinced on one of these quarterbacks enough and they're confident that they can get them at number three. I think it's a great move because at this point the forty niners roster is loaded. They're trying to win now. And all they need is that future franchise cornerstone to kind of move that what roster forward and push them over the hump so they need to get the future of the franchise right while the roster and core are relatively young and talented like they are but overall. I think this is a great move by four hundred. Gm john lynch because he's been aggressive. He really inherited a mess in two thousand seventeen. They were coming off all the colin kaepernick drama Jim thome soula era. Which was a fun was which was really fun while it lasted Brian hoyer was his first quarterback when he got there he's made aggressive moves since he treated for jimmy garoppolo drafted. George kittle has fifth round. Pick one of the better draft picks in the past three four years. That's happened for five years. That's happened in the nfl. Just in terms of the value that he got that late in the draft

Dallas Cowboys fire defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula

"Do have some breaking news on friday afternoon. The first friday after the dallas cowboys season ended an unfortunate start the new year for their staff. That dallas cowboys. Making some you know some obvious news in a bit of surprise news the dallas cowboys announcing that defensive coordinator. Mike nolan defensive. Line coach jim. Tom soula have been let go. Have been whatever you wanna call it fire to buy the team. They will not be back in two thousand and twenty one. Mike nolan obviously oversaw. One of the worst defenses to ever live ever played in the nfl. And so we'd heard. Rumblings obviously had been reported different instances over kind of the last month that it was likely he was not going to be back although mike nolan. If you're somehow unaware is is rather chummy with mike mccarthy dallas cowboys head coach mike mccarthy they go way back in case. You forgot mike. Nolan was the head coach of the san francisco. Forty niners in two thousand and five and mike mccarthy offensive corner at the time that was of course the year. The forty niners took alex smith with a number one overall pick. Ironically the quarterback that won the division that they were together here. This season with the dallas cowboys. Jim thome soula was a head coach of the forty niners at one point in time himself albeit for only a year obviously following in the footsteps of jim harbaugh who got an extension today of all days again with the university of michigan so lots of symmetry going on here and so. Yeah i mean my canola thing. I think everybody saw coming a mile away. The jim thome solo thing is a bit of a surprise austin on youtube. Says i thought it said mccarthy and was like whoa still good to get rid of nolan and this is how every cowboys fan feels. And let's be frank. Let's be honest. We don't enjoy talking about people losing their jobs. People getting fired or things like that but this defense was among the worst again in the history of this game. The dallas cowboys last week. With their season on the line against an offense that had been anemic for most of the season the new york giants that was incidentally again. You talk about all. The irony here led by former dallas cowboys head coach jason garrett in the giants offensive coordinator who again to go kind of crazy circle reportedly had an interview today on friday with the los angeles chargers for their head coaching vacancy. But the cowboys new york with their season on the line and they got run over. I mean the new york giants before last week against the cowboys. The previous four games. The giants had not scored more than three points in a single first half in each of the four games. The giants played before the cowboys. They went into the locker room at halftime with no more than three points. They put twenty up in the first half against the cowboys. And that was kind of what the season was for the cowboys right. This never ending display of imperfection this never ending run of records getting broken records getting set and i just you know this was inevitable. I mean shutout. Of course to the all encompassing thanos. I mean this truly was inevitable. Reality a lotta people myself. Included wondered what took so long this week. It's a pair at the mike mccarthy and his staff overall were evaluating things doing kind of the final walk throughs and assessments in whatever time just came for them to move

Yeah, Jim Thome Soula had his own drunk idea. He was being interviewed at Redskins training camp and they were talking to him about like how to how to drink beer.

"Well, well, you know what's interesting about that before his how bad the Mets are. You know, the Mets are just so why won't they call up Tim tebow since they're so bad, he's injured. We probably I'm going to here. Yeah. So if the dodgers are tied for the wild card or wouldn't be the end of the world, they don't win the division as they get in. But you gotta play that one game playoff. I don't even know pitches at Kershaw is soon. It'll be still be Kershaw Kershaw still the guy. He's still the number one starter, but now you have Walker bueller who's right there and he's looking great and has a little bit of time rest time in between. The by the way. Okay, so I'm I'm, there's two things on the show today. I'm gonna blatantly steal from get up. I was up early this morning watching. Get up Michael. You like you like questions like this, Greg questions like this. I got one of the three, so Mark to share and by the way, BUSTER only affect baseball. BUSTER only drives at one thirty. Mark Tisch era was one of the co host. Get up this morning. They brought him in. He was in studio with Greenberg and Jalen. To share a plate from two thousand and three to twenty sixteen okay. Two, three sixteen only three players had more RBI's than him during that span during that thirteen year span, I only got one of the three pools. That's the one I got during that time Robbins thirteen. You strike one Miguel Cabrera very good. Michael. I did not get that. That is. That is a nother answer. I guess I'll give you my wrong answers that may help you. I guess a rod which is wrong. And Jim Thome, which is wrong. Right? So you've got to that holiday? Nope, Nope. Nope. Two strikes. I don't know. I'm Michael obviously better at this than I am. It's a huge name. So huge name, two thousand three to sixteen a gigantic name. Who was your? You'll beat yourselves up when you don't get this two thousand three to six, nine notes ter- was it the east or the west? Sorry, the Ayler I now AL and by the way back guessing berry. Oh, hold on one second. Sorry, it's through last copy. Right? David, Ortiz, big Papi on the outside, but I thought, man, you think of all that time you wouldn't put think Mark to share would have more RBI's than bonds or Tomi or forget those guys overtired five, six years ago I thoughtful had Guerrero might be a possibility. No, but it was just it was just those three guys, but I think in by the way, Greg, you mentioned Walker, bueller. I think Walker bueller is probably if the playoffs started today getting a start in the postseason. Here's Dave Roberts talking about Buehler who had a bad start the last time he was out there, but last night was really good. Walker was very good. So each of his last three starts, they progressively got better. The life in the zone just is curve ball was really sharp tonight. I thought he, he attacked guys and seven punch. No walkie he was. He was great tonight. And Buehler has been kind of Mike Leigh's Humphry big. He's kind of built like me or Tim Melinda Colm. He's kind of a slight guy, but boy throws one hundred miles an hour and Craig wasn't there a time when they were absolutely was a highs..

Jim Thome e is right there and I'm an and hit my interactions with him. We're always incredibly pleasant and I have no of no naysayer. If anyone here knows of Lawrence, Thomas MIT of you ever heard anybody personally, say a negative word about Jim Thome you the man supposed to guy who at the six hundred and twelve home runs. I wanna hear about it because I don't know of any such person. This is look I, it's it's lower here in Chicago. He was here with the White Sox for four years. The owner of the White Sox. Jerry Reinsdorf said that Jim Thome is one of the three greatest people that he's ever met. That's how beloved he is in the White Sox organization. And he's just one of those guys where when he would walk into the clubhouse always had time for you always had his story was always pleasant, and I don't think that there's some guys you, you can see through the facade.

You never heard anything bad about the one thing that he did that you won't see anymore, like Jack Mars fighting to stay in a game. He negotiated his own contracts and did several of them while he was actually practicing like he did. He did one with Bill joy where he was out on the field and legit came out and throw a number out of it. What do you think? And he took grounder and he said, yeah, that'll do. And they shook hands and his contract was done, and I don't think we're seeing that anymore. Think about how many guys won't even talk about a contractor, they're not negotiating during his season? Yeah, I think anytime you can actually negotiate contracts with the glove. On your hand, you're doing something that's going to last for long time with very predictable and an admirable that he would use his time. Time to make the case for his double playmate Lou Whitaker. Okay. Before we shift over to the NFL, let me tell everybody today's show is brought to you by simply safe home security. If you've ever looked for a security system, you know that it's tough.

"Hi, Marty, Larry, joined, by Dave Flemming Dave a great class going in, I, just get some of your thoughts about some of the players going, Jim Thome Jim Thome e You know when you look. At the all time home run list he is so high up there and, I think a lot of people forget. That Jim Thome. Is known I mean he was known I think her while. He was playing as the nicest person in the sport Jim Thome me has a great personality he's another gays got a great personal story of kind of an underdog story somebody who was never considered a great. Prospect and just with hard work turned into Charlie manual raves about Jim Thome me and all. The hard work that he put in with him to become a better hitter I. Think of him in that Cleveland uniform get a lot of home runs with the, Phillies may his career lasted a little longer maybe than, you think you think of those his Cal buyer Indians teams that he was a part of that were so good and he was right in the, middle of that order but he hit the. Hundreds of home runs, in, a Phillies uniform and, managed, to find a place to. Play defensively wasn't just a d. h. Jim tell me one of the, great homerun, hitters I almost I almost feel like watching him was like must have been what. It was like watching Harmon Killebrew or somebody like that from the sort of the golden era of baseball who wasn't an all around talent the way that maize was or or. So many of those great players but was so good at one thing that he became one of the all-time rates so you can walk, also RBI's everything he had the whole game day Fleming great stuff this is awesome Slater of the San Francisco Giants now back to the pre game, show with Marty Laurie on KNB are six.

Just act like he, had no fear and no worries in the world when he was on the ceiling in the clubhouse and you guys that just enjoy playing with and with Jim Thome as we always call him you know the big comb dome you know he was. Basically one of the one of the biggest guys that. Didn't know, how strongly, was or, how good he was playing with Cleveland and again with Jimmy he was just one of those guys that just he just, inaugurated and we saw it on a daily basis how he had, a good, eye at the plate in you just had this strength that was just unbelievable There's really not much debate on these guys getting in and Chipper for one would mind if the guy he says is the best of all time was able to join him as well I have no problem whatsoever Saying they're very Barnes the best baseball player ever seen on a uniform I have no problem with that I think he's a hall of Famer whether. There's a cloud of suspicion Or not part of me. You know says that if he gets into this. Class you know he's going to. Be the focus of the rest of us are going to be forgotten Well, all right so that's his point of view, now actor Kenny Lofton and again seventeen year former all star outfielder with Cleveland his take on it Decidedly strong and different, from Chipper wow I thought, I knew a little bit better than that but for me knowing the game playing the game and. Being around that game and I just for me I've, always been outspoken about it and it just irks me really bad when guys talk about drugs 'cause, I know I played the game the right. Way, and I, kinda got off the the hall of fame ballot because. Of guys using performance enhancing drugs, and then you got people like Alex Rodriguez, yeah Alex. Rodriguez they're. Praising him on ESPN about the game, of baseball you cheated the game of baseball but you being praised on Sunday night, baseball FOX TV I don't I can't even watch it because again I just can't praise a guy who cheated the game that I love. So, passionately and. I put my heart and soul. Into the, game to, get there, and watch guy who cheated and I'm playing, against guys who cheated Competed. Against.

Pitch that bounced way before the, plate, and hit into like left field for for a base hit when he would swing, at those just horrendous hitches what would you think well I think this Puerto Vlad's talent you know this guy had just great basketball skill He's. Strong ever seen anybody swing the bat so hard at square balls up like flag could and I think when he saw the ball good and he's just swing he. Put a swing, on sometimes these pitches. Would be shin high and sometimes they would, be necktie but he would badge they? Hit him hard I think the outliers of the ball bounces obviously he got a little those pitches but it just shows the talent he had to be able to put the bat on the. Ball and still you? Know, be able to make contact and. Got gotta, hit on a ball the balance that's That's something special what is your, favorite Guerrero memory I don't.

"Jones Jack Morris, Jim, Thome, Alan. Trammell Todd Walker Nicole Briscoe I added those two names just to make. Us seem a little special. I don't. Feel special special. That's all that's always good you had what more than a. Decade in major league baseball how many of these guys you? You, play with her against yeah I was called up at the end of nineteen ninety. Play through two thousand seven. I played against Chipper Jones when I, got to the National League I start out the. American League with Minnesota? Twins you know what time I think we're going to call a quick time out for Second got a. Bit of problem with your. Audio and. We want to. Be able to hear you because you know those things are. Important in the whole radio world so let me give you? A, second you've got all these guys who made their Mark on the game lad would. Swing at a ball in. The dirt made you feel like he, was part of his family you've got Jim Thome. Who sort of is? The of the the baseball we see today I back buddy Oh it was Volume must have been done. On this machine I'm a rookie. At this stuff that's two rookies on one were just absolutely in trouble if that's our star. In the. Show all right let's start with. The initial question how many of these guys did you play? Against. Were with yes so I was in the big leagues nineteen ninety six to. Two thousand seven I started out in the American League with, the Minnesota Twins but eventually got into the National League played against Chipper Jones played against Vladimir Guerrero and his. Montreal expo, days Jim, Thome of course, was with Cleveland which when I got caught up in, nineteen ninety six I three games. Were in, Milwaukee you know in front of, four thousand, people you. Know rainy Milwaukee and I, thought to, myself you know I can handle this, is big, leagues you know but. No big deal we went from Milwaukee to Cleveland in. Nineteen ninety six and that's when. They were rolling they had Jim Thome e, Alamar Kenny Lofton all these great guys all stars and I tell you, what I mean. I was stunned I was at, third base, just you know. Is wide open I've got to get my attention just to focus on what, I was doing but I couldn't believe how many people, watching. That, game Jim Tell me part of that group and played with Trevor Hoffman. In San Diego so I've played. Against those for the other two guys Alan Trammell Jack Morris little older than I than I. Was but. But very blessed to even get. On the field you know with these guys tell me six? Hundred. Twelve home runs a few that were were deep when you were watching him. Play on the other team which what's like the most memorable, homerun yeah so Jim told me we saw a lot of home runs as you mentioned six hundred twelve we. Were in, the Metrodome, and everybody that, watches falls baseball knows that you know the old Metrodome, when they hit the ball up. In the, air you really had to follow, with the, minute the. The the the guy made, contact with, it when it got up into that, roof it, was hard to see. So Jim Tommy crashed one one night and we knew. He hit it but nobody saw. It nobody knew went and key of course, did because he didn't go running right away and then we turn over, to the right. Field over the baggy and beyond, well beyond, the barrier those. Banners that are hanging down and then one of them just fluttered so I, mean it had to be a five hundred foot home. Run Killed it but that's the last we saw that ball you know just. We never saw actually from the time I left his bat but that ball was, hammered but he, had a lot of those what was your favorite it's hard to say. Favorite when you're, playing against them but what was your favorite Chipper Jones You know. What's great about shipper he was nice to everybody you know we get we get a chance even, though you don't really know. Somebody it's all a fraternity in so, Chipper I was playing second base if Chipper gone on sagging. He'd say hi you know and you know it asks about your family or certain things and what I always, liked about, him as he was always just kind of seemed, nice to everybody just generally a good guy and when you get to that level that's what you really start paying attention to because everybody's talented so now you start paying attention to. Personalities and whether or not guys really are genuinely nice to, other people you know and and Chipper was. Definitely one of those guys you know later on in the show you're gonna hear Mike so that the angels are playing the Mariners tonight, and Blad played with social out Anaheim for for a number of years and I got a chance to talk to. Him the four they they get ready for. Their game, tonight and I was saying one of my favorite memories was back, in two thousand nine when, the angels were playing the Orioles and. The ball the pitch? Hit what five feet before home plate and Vlad decided, to swing on it and the balance And it turns into, like a single into left field. To me, not only, was he the, guy that he kind of felt. Like you could just invite. Them over, to your, house and like give them a hug but like that's in. My head that's how I think of. Ladd how do you how do you think of him. You know, what's, cool about, that is that I teach these young kids look when we. Walked to the plate every pitch this coming in we're swinging until the ball dictates that it's not, not the other way around. You're not up there tentative you're going, after every pitch and you hold up if you recognize that. It's a ball will at blue Amir's case he could hit any ball at any moment and hit it a, long way, if I swung at the ball at his own, I was generally out but he could hit them off the ground like cricket or he could hit it above his head and it's still keep that zone that level level Swain to. Where he could really hammer it and so was great about, flat first of all he was just strong. Stronger and everybody else but Secondly he had that unique ability to hit balls out of his own one thirty pm eastern that is when, these ceremony begins from Cooperstown tomorrow those six men Guerrero Chipper Jones Trevor Hoffman Jack Morris Jim Thome me Alan Trammell, they will be enshrined into the hall of fame when you've got a guy like glad.

The baseball hall of fame induction ceremony is Sunday. It'll be Jack Morris, Alan Trammell Vladimir Guerrero who mentioned earlier who would be wiffle ball player. Jim Thome who'd had a can o Jim Thome e who should be on everyone's all time. Looks like you should be on your softball league team Griffin, rip Chipper Jones. And Trevor Hoffman. And we're in the funny Marty when you get to certain age, it's like the guys you watch their entire career another. Yeah, it makes me feel really old. Like what those guys are going in. The hall of fame, right? Trevor Hoffman was the I was he liked the first real closer. I guess maybe Dennis Eckersley might have been the first real closer, but Hoffman was at the guy that I remember that came in and just therm nothing but smoke. Yeah, and but then like got crafty and he's of the group. He's probably the most is numbers are crazy, but of the group. He's the one that people seem to have the most reservations about, but he was there man like there was who else were the lease? Myth lease myth hall of fame, John rocker, John rocker. John rocker lasted a second, wasn't he closer though? He was starter was who's closer goose Gossage hit Googlers. Goose was the first goose was the first one of my life that was just was like just came. Just came in throwing smoke and. Yeah, but those closers were the best, but then but then you had the guys that were like great and then weren't so great. Like Bruce, Bruce suitor closer, Billy Wagner. Billy Wagner was the man son? Yeah, Billy Wagner grew up near me. He's from tazewell Virginia. Went to Fareham college. The little teeny, tiny Fareham college, of course, Moran Rivera, but goose was the one hour reduces the one that came along and I thought and then other ones, though there's some other ones that are scaping me right now that. When unique personalities when we look like maybe not kids. But as we were getting on towards high school college, they were some guys, I'll think of it as we go. I'm still working on joslin. Trying to think. Francisco rodriguez. I mean lease myth, I love Lee Smith lease. Myth is a really good call man. He's tall. Yeah, right. Eckersley was the guy probably though. Yeah, see. I'm so old armor when he was was a decent starter, but. Why didn't he? Yeah, you break. I want to Braise about small malts basically two different careers, which is wise in the hall of fame so. So bring up del Murphy because of the peace right Thompson road and full disclosure, I'm sitting in my office right now with a framed portrait of del Murphy, like standing in front of the American flag, holding his golden glove. And so, yeah, if you grew up in the part of the world we did and this is the super station era. And I, I knew so much about the cubs and the Braves, both because you watch them on television every day. You watch cubs in the morning. Watch brazen night. I went to a cubs cubs Braves game one time with the church youth groups that with girl, and I thought she would be impressed at my overwhelming knowledge of both teams and all scare. I mean, because if you watch both of those teams every single day all summer long, you know, every summer of youth it became will you know when Rafael Ramirez the plate and I'm going well, you know, he really struggles on so.

Creepy. Man he was so weird and, creepy and some of those memes were and I know the screengrabs and, stuff but there are like full gift files of 'em just making ridiculous snooty, faces The private Pyle comparisons I thought were very good yeah yeah yeah At least early struck me as a guy no pun intended as a guy just so ingrained in a culture of unaccountability that he, really, he went there and he testified? With this idea. Of like yeah what are you going to do I'm Peter Struck I. Work for the FBI do. What. I. Want Well and that's exactly I mean in the end unfortunately you're right that there may be something to that I if history's any judge these people, they, go they they have their their? Public hearing there. If they if they choose to testify in congress Public And then by and large things have changed Andrew McCabe and Jim Thome, ethos got there was some there was some What your not the right we're consequences to the, rapture but but if. The IRA scandals and the teacher. Can happen right there was no accountability all those folks got for you Testified some. Didn't but there was nothing happened to Lois Lerner Sarah hall. Ingram in them so Peter Struck is. And this is what we, talked about on Friday right and it's very clear the Democrats are, willing to protect this. Guy at all costs and so Can you can go. Up there and engaging in in this odd behavior and there's. No accountability On these the these things don't happen the change doesn't happen overnight we we all know that and I don't think any of us. Had, any expectations when it comes to a guy like Peter Struck that of getting anything more actually I think we actually got more than I hadn't even an -ticipant out of that hearing last week I. Didn't, expect any any any accountability or you know any sort of who ordered the code red moment moment Yeah yeah, yeah no I I never expected that but, the fact that he did show is hand, in in many. Circumstances and you did have people like Trey Goudy who did, stand up and ask the appropriate the appropriate questions all of that is to say that at a bare minimum at. Least the word is out that there is a possibility that this stuff can get, exposed at, a bare, minimum if you're in the FBI at least maybe you're. Gonna think twice before you start you know, going blabbity blah over texts to your to your to your lover maybe Listen I think maybe I think there are two things that sort. Of come out of this I think number one you're right is implemental change we, would not, have known, about any of this Hillary Clinton president really clear about, that I think the. Other side of, it is is that it also one of the great things about Thursday's hearing do show that the Democrats are totally in the. Town for, this that that this guy. Was not an official operative of the Democratic Party then you know he was an adopted operative of. The Democratic Party given given the depths to which they were gonna go to protect this. Guy I mean that's, that's also, a three that. Was the most important thing out of all this. Other side of it is an I Puts honest right Truly a trial and Peter Struck was the. Descendant intrigue out he, was the prosecutor I think if this was, a record setting I think we would have had our. Code red moment, I think unfortunately a got like three outings hamstrung by the by processes are under which is house, hearings operate well and speaking of not knowing, we wouldn't be we wouldn't know about these things if it wasn't for, Trump getting elected let's move over to.

"Griffey albert pool halls jim thome as sammy sosa frank robinson mark maguire names that just jump out at you there yeah and wrong reason than him yes yeah so he's sort of in he's he's passed the steroid era but he's still attached to it it's a little bit of a lance armstrong kind of feeling like everybody else cheating but he's the one guy who is doing a better than everybody else not cheating it's interesting his career stats and sammy sosas kristaps power wise are very similar they're both in the early six hundreds with home runs but sosa was like a b player and became an a plus player out of nowhere for four sosa averaged sixty home runs for four seasons yeah and and pools was the opposite he was an a plus player with turned into an a b player the last app is greater and the difference one's one of the hall fame was not gonna come get a sniff what are the cubs won from sammy sosa what is this that they're asking for so sammy's allowed back in the good graces there with the cubs i know sammy wants a statue i think statues are stupid but you know if you win a title and you wanna have a statue great but if the cubs are waiting for an apology from sammy sosa didn't comes benefit from sammy sosa greatly benefit from sammy sosa so what is it that sammy did wrong yeah yeah you steroids but the cubs certainly cashed in i can't tell you the number of games i went to just to see sammy sosa had wrigley i don't know what the cubs are waiting for or would sammy has to give them but i find that interesting that you know he's not allowed back in the family until he apologizes i'd here's another thing i brought this up yesterday and now people are you know that caught wind of it and that is the reaction of the pro football hall of fame to not showing up i told you this yesterday what what their reaction was is a he's he's gone and forgotten outta sight outta mind if you choose not to show up then hey we're not going to acknowledge you now in my opinion tarallo may terrel omens has his reasons for not showing up and part of that is the pro football hall of fame voters that they didn't put him in and maybe this is his way of saying i'm not gonna show up you know you put me in i'm not showing up because she didn't put me in sooner maybe i don't know we haven't heard from tara loehmann's but the pro football hall of fame can't be petty about this he's a he's a hall of famer who got elected who chose not to show up it feels like you're holding him accountable for something that has nothing to do with his election he doesn't wanna show up okay that's terrel owens being terrel owens what i'd like to see him they're being honored yes i would what i think it would be an interesting ceremony even more interesting absolutely but when you say that you know we're not even a knowledge ing you i think that that's wrong polling we were all discussing over there if we knew a specific reason why tarallo ones is not showing up sherwood help his case it's very vague his statements they're not not giving him the honor he still gets the honor he gets the plaque they're not recognizing him there his name is not mentioned well he's not part of the presentation he chose not to participate in the president and they're not gonna waste twenty minutes on a person you don't have to make weighs twenty minutes you can waste sixty seconds on him but he deserves acknowledgement to that crowd that he's part of the class at twenty eighteen i don't care what his reasoning is i'm going to guess it's because you made me wait and i'm gonna make you wait in look nobody wins here i'm not surprised the terrel owens would take this route and make it about him but the pro football hall of fame they should still aknowledge you you.
