NASCAR allows limited audience for first time since coronavirus, Confederate flag ban
"A historic milestone for sports in America Nascar drivers on the track today, a small number of fans back in the stands for the first time since the corona virus outbreak, and now the band confederate flag not allowed anywhere in sight. ABC's Victor Oquendo is in Florida. Green. Card going full throttle. Spree quality, welcoming back a select group of fans, but not the confederate flag that company has done more in one week for racial equality than it had done in the past seventy years. Pass cars overcome covid. Nineteen fans are back at the track for the first time today. And battling social and racial injustice with a car, bearing the black lives matter Hashtag Bubba Wallace the circuits, only fulltime black driver, leading the charge for change. This is about our brothers, and our sisters that are that are are suffering through a lot and. You look at. The confederate flag and and how yes may mean heritage to most but to a group that is in a lot of pain right now. The community is in a lot of pain. That's a symbol of hate. It's an a veteran in attendance welcoming the new era. I'm happy that. THAT NASCAR has finally realized that there are so many other people that probably Wanna come to track, but they didn't feel comfortable, and hopefully now they will talk to your drivers like Jimmy, Johnson and Kyle Busch, taking their own action, cutting ties with the helmet designer over tweets about the confederate flag, but not all drivers are united one threatening to quit after the flag band, one thousand members of the military invited to the Dixie vodka four hundred everyone's screen before entry masks were required.

FOMO and Managing the Exceptions
"Here's the editor of Lens. Work Publishing Brooks Jensen. I WanNa talk today. A little bit about the pragmatics of equipment and equipment selection relative to what it is that we want to produce. It's a topic that we've discussed before but there's a new take on it that I want to share about the nature of compromise to begin with there appears to be one prevalent strategy for choosing a camera and lens system and that strategy seems to be driven by the recently coined acronym. That's made its way into the photographic lexicon Thommo the fear of missing out and all you have to do is go look at camera reviews on Youtube or in the current crop of magazines. And you'll see that this is a big one. It's the primary marketing tool that camera. Manufacturers are using the implication being that you might miss a shot if you don't have the latest greatest camera but the premise of this idea. Is that the cameras should be capable of not only the photographs we routinely WANNA make but the ones that we might possibly WanNa make no matter. How unusual the circumstances and if we don't buy the right camera that is the one with maximum capabilities. We might find ourselves frustrated when that rare opportunity presents itself because of the limitations of our equipment and so they tell us we need to buy a piece of equipment that will handle every possible situation. I'm not sure that's the best strategy. For the simple reason that it unquestionably over engineers. Most of what we do. It also fails to include an important part of the decision making process known as the opportunity cost. Now for those of you who are not familiar with the term opportunity cost. The opportunity cost is what you have to pay as a result of the decision that you made to buy something else so for example if you buy a very high megapixel camera that's GonNa cost you a bunch of time Time to copy the files over to your computer and hard drive space and etc. Those are all things that you're going to have to give up efficiency of time efficiency of storage. You'RE GONNA have to give up all of that in order to pay for the advantage of having a high megapixel camera and speaking of that crazy megapixel rat race. We seem to be involved in. This whole idea seems to me to be wholly based on the idea that we might. I repeat might want to make a large print. Well let's look at that for just a minute. As an example of compromise and how we might alternatively managed the exceptions if we don't have a high megapixel camera for example so the theory of having a high megapixel camera is that we wanna make really big prints but of course if you WanNa make really big prints you need a really big printer and so there's costs involved. They're not just for the high megapixel camera but for the printer and the paper and ink in its CETERA. Now maybe you you'll use a service so you don't have to own the printer but let's set that aside for now because it has its own sort of mathematics involved in it. Let's just assume that you WANNA make your own prince so you need a big printer so the opportunity cost of having the need to make really big prince. Is You have to spend money on a big printer which means you don't have that money available for travel for lenses for paying for models or whatever else you have to sacrifice in order to buy the printer so let. Let's look at a few of these numbers just for grins. And by the way I know numbers are hard to follow in an audio podcast. But I'll try to do my best to make it simple. Let's look at for example. Epson printers in their list price so seventeen inch printers run between twelve hundred and two thousand dollars. How many mega pixels do you have to have to use these seventeen inch printers to make say a Standard Sixteen by twenty print at two hundred and forty? Ppi well you need a whopping eighteen mega pixels? That's it anything over eighteen mega pixels. If all you'RE GONNA make is sixteen by twenty prints is really not necessary unless you do a lot of cropping and things like that and obviously if you buy a seventeen inch printer you don't intend on making any images bigger than sixteen by twenty so you really don't need anything bigger than eighteen megapixel unless you wanNA printed a little higher resolution like three hundred or three sixty or something like that which I'll get to a just a minute. Let's say you WANNA make even bigger prince so you invest somewhere between twenty three hundred and forty seven hundred dollars which probably more than you paid for your camera on a twenty four inch printer. Now you can make twenty by twenty four inch standard size photographic prints at two hundred forty P P I. How many mega pixels will you'll need? Well you'll need twenty eight Megapixel for twenty by twenty four inch print. That's it so why spend the money for the sixty year one hundred megapixel high resolution camera unless there's some other reason than a large print but let's say you're interested in really pushing the envelope so you step up to a forty four inch printer and all? That's involved with that in terms of paper sizes and Matt Sizes and frames and Cetera. So you have a forty four inch printer and you paid somewhere between five thousand and thirteen thousand dollars for it. You are serious about this right so now you can make a thirty by forty inch print at two hundred and forty. Ppi You will need a sixty nine megapixel image for thirty by forty inch print. Okay so now you can sort of justify those high megapixel cameras because you need sixty nine megapixel but wait a minute. The reason you buy a forty four inch printer and all that's required to make it successful including the camera is because you are in pursuit of excellence. You're really pushing the envelope. You WanNa make print that is so outstanding that it's beyond technical question whatsoever which means you probably won't want to print a two hundred and forty. Ppi because a print it three hundred PPI or maybe even some people say three hundred and sixty PPI is microscopically better. And that's what you're interested in pursuing is the microscopically better. Well what do you need in order to make a thirty by forty inch print at say three hundred sixty PPI? Well if you work out the math you need a three hundred eleven megapixel camera which doesn't exist. And as a matter of fact your sixty or seventy megapixel high resolution full frame camera isn't even close to providing that kind of resolution which means that it will require some sort of compromise and the compromise might be that you have to do some stitching multiple exposures piece them all together to make the three hundred eleven megapixel file or you have to print at a lower. Ppi on your forty four inch printer to get your thirty by forty inch. Print and this is the nugget of the issue the requirement for some sort of compromise. I would propose to you that. All of photography is some sort of compromise and with that in mind than the fear of missing out takes on a different kind of reality. It's it's not really sane to be worried about the fear of missing out. It seems to me the more reasonable policy. The more reasonable strategy is to figure out what the exceptions are and try to manage those so if we thought through our choice of equipment sufficiently. I think it's fair to say that our choice will be made based on the fact that it serves us well for what ninety or ninety five percent of the pictures we WANNA make in my case. That's micro four thirds and it's perfect for my needs. That is to say probably covers ninety percent of the photographs that I wanna make in the size that I wanna make it okay. Fine but what about the exceptions? I'm obviously compromised with that camera. And it sensor size in its resolution in etc and there are some exceptions that are going to crop up that that Kamara's gonna be a problem for me. So what about that five or ten percent of the time when? That camera is not sufficient. What do I do then? Well seems like two choices. I can either forget about those images and just don't make them and concentrate on the ninety or ninety five percent of the images. I can make with my camera and be perfectly happy with it or I can figure out ways to manage the exceptions and develop reasonable work arounds.
To Fight Climate Change, Bank on Soil
"Carpenter and Yoko Kamara were showing us around their tiny farm in Connecticut. It's called Asa Waga. I met Alex originally because he sells their delicious veggies at my local farmer's market and I started chatting with him and learned that he and Yoko are unusual. Not many farms are fully. No till I think no toe captures it pretty well. We really try not to disturb the soil at all. So you know we try to move the soil very very little literally pulling up a carrot to harvest it is as destructive as they get and the other thing. Yoko Alex do is. They tried to keep the ground covered. So the soil doesn't erode and carbon doesn't escape that way you don't really ever want it to be bare soil so even between plantings you want that to be as short as possible. So that's one thing and then another is to have a diversity of vegetables so my plan for next year. I'm trying to have an each bed at least two different vegetables so instead of having a better carrots you can enter cop carrots and scallions or something like that this multi vegetable farming plan. Yo called it inter cropping and it's great for a number of reasons first. The diversity of plants helps keep away weeds and pests because there aren't any huge beds of just one type of Plant Alex. Yoko don't want to spend all their time weeding and disturbing the soil. And they also don't want to be applying pesticides herbicides. Inter cropping helps with all that also having a diversity of crops means you harvest them at different times so interrupting means that even if you're pulling up one crop the other still there to help keep the ground covered plus the roots of one crop. Stand the ground even when you pull up the other up and said they keep pushing carbon into the soil and feeding microbes informing those great carbon storing clumps. You Know Wendy you see bare ground in nature It's only after a natural disaster usually so when you're tilling you're basically creating a series of natural disasters over and over as though I is the polar opposite of a natural disaster the farms in a little clearing in the forest and it is really beautiful. It's full of life. When we visited there were birds and frogs in a little caterpillar. Turning into a butterfly we walked carefully on paths between the beds that of course we wouldn't disturb the soil and we got to snack on some Chinese Broccoli right off the stock. It's so sweet. At this point I was getting serious vegetable. Nb WHEN ISO my veggies at home in my little container garden I dig a hole for the seeds or the seedlings but that disturbs the soil. Obviously so how to Alex and Yoko get their seedlings in the ground? Alex showed us this cool tool they have. It's called a paper patrons. Planter stood of growing in a plastic tray. Starting the season it we start them in A. It's like an accordion paper. Sell so then you start them. They grow and then when it's time to transplant. You put them on this and you walk backwards and he pull this and it unwinds the paper chain and puts it in the ground for you. The paper bought transplant. Carves out a narrow space in the soil and just lays the seedlings right in there but wouldn't the ground be covered with all those great living in crop plants. Where's their space for the new crops? That's the tricky part on notes L. But there's a few ways around this problem. Yoko told us that some of the plants they put in as cover crops get killed naturally by frost and turn into Mulch so that's great for if we need to put a plantain early in the season next year. 'cause it's going to be dead already. There's no need to kill it. The ride that were sewing now. That's not gonNA Winter Kill and by. May It's just GONNA be Super Tall. So what farmers do is they cramp down. I mean it's just as simple as just pushing it down. Alex and Yuko have a tool. That does that crimping and just pushes the plants down and then their space for the new crop some farms that are lower no till just kill the cover crops using herbicide which seems to not be the greatest solution. Alexandra coup still. There are clearly ways to farm without disturbing the soil. But here's my question isn't the whole point of our whole system of agriculture. That annuals need disturbed soil or at least really prefer. It necessarily prefer it as much as they are very opportunistic and when there is a disturbed ground they kind of like leap on it and they're like on the first one there. Yuko says annual plants might take advantage of disturbed soils but they do just mind an undisturbed soils to and anyway annual plants like Broccoli and tomatoes and peppers. Do love good nutritious soil and carbon rich soil. Certainly is that okay? At this point I was about to sign up for the cult of no till Alex Coca. We're making it sound so sensible and so simple. But Tim and asthma told us. It isn't quite as easy as all that it is among the most sophisticated in challenging and dicey in some ways methods of agriculture. Because a lot of things have to line up in terms of the weather in terms of getting out there to do the work so that you don't miss a window that's critical in organic no till the implementation of it is very challenging no I. It's definitely intensive in terms of labor and management that has to go in not just intensive. But also you'd require knowledge of how to manage soils in these sustainable waste and so it's definitely not necessarily as easy as intensive production systems but I think the number of farmers that are practicing regenerative. Agriculture keeps growing. And that's a demonstration that it's doable. It's probably more labor intensive Will it's different intensity? It's a totally different way of thinking about it. And I think for a lot of farms that have learned conventionally. It's not easy to switch the entire way that you think about a system. So is it more work. I don't know if it is. I think that over time it gets to be less work actually are inputs become less. Were not working. The soil We we'd in June. We read very minimally and Alex told us they take off each winter. They go away often to Japan. Where Yukos from so? That's pretty nice. Of course the rest of the year is kind of full on nonstop work at the two of them on the farm and they do literally everything and they both say it's not easier maybe even possible on a bigger form you know I think There's a big benefit for us having a small farm because when I just explained to you micro plan for next year having inter cropping almost every vegetable. That's really hard man as I. I don't even know how we're going to share but yeah I think I don't know what the scale ability is but it would be amazing if there could be a lot of small farms rather than very handful of large farms of course if Yoga's dream of lots of small farms were to become a reality that would mean. We need a lot more farmers than we have right now and there are all sorts of challenges and roadblocks to making that happen. The other thing is that Yoko and Alex growing veggies that Asa Ouaga veggies are something we could all use more of but really our diet is built on a few commodity crops big fields of wheat and corn and soy so canot till work for those crops to. There are a pretty amazing group of of growers in the Mid West. Especially who are practicing no till but with a great deal of cover crop implementation cover crop cocktails and only periodically using herbicides. So they're not what nozzle heads where they're just spraying spring there judiciously hitting cropped just to break a cycle after maybe two years even and then resewing and in my mind that in terms of managing a broad landscape is very
"kamara" Discussed on ExtraTime
"All right ten minutes with ola kamara of DC united all i want to be a citizen of the world because i look at your resume norway austria germany norway austria norway columbus LA shinsen now DC man you've been all over you've seen some things yeah i've seen a lot of cultures men so it's it's pretty cool kid that's three years old and those three years he's been on three different incontinence so that's pretty incredible i think so i mean i it's an amazing way honest what do you as a traveller as someone moon who's working in those different environments was the perspective that you try to bring with you because people talk about harvey open mind or trying to tackle a day by day day but three different continents three years i mean it takes a different mindset for when i was young i thought i was right about everything but then SEC different cultures different countries continents as you say then understand the people think it'd be different than you and you're not always right on an for me it's been been cool to to see how people live you know and also but for me to be honest i like the united states it's pretty good here we will dig into that you're wrong about what did you think you're right about that you were wrong about i mean maybe not wrong what did what have you learned what are the lessons that you they reflect on the stigma of these like for example americans are like this or the chad this is how china is for temple so i mean how we european sees the american is not the same as living here and experiencing americans for yourself i don't think i want to know how you seem to be perfectly honest with you maybe we'll dig into that maybe i want to talk about china tell me about the process leading up to you deciding to obviously take your family to china and to take your profession there too i'd did you make that decision i think i think the offer was a very good one it was it was simple and i knew it was the very good city to live in how to a norwegian player that was there already told me great things about it so for me was kind of total package where where it felt right to to go there on after that i mean it didn't sort out be the the best best transfer but i mean i'm glad i did what was what didn't work i think how how how the team played this style of play was wasn't right for me and also think from my family didn't enjoy the time that much so they they moved back after just one or two months in when you have a young kid you wanna wanna see him grow up and be there it's it's it's tough you know so for me going back here was a good choice and what was the thing that surprised you most about china maybe the culture i think beyond the field i think to around us like coming there ann's having robots greet you at the airport and like how far they come with technology that was for me unbelievable to see and it was a cool thing to experience we always hear about not being settled and family family such a big part of that too how does that change your life as a profession your family's not there i think you know overall all happiness is is very important because i think especially as a striker to you have to be very confident about yourself and if you start doubting stuff it's kind of a transparent to do your game on the i fell especially in in china that was what happened i think i'm very comfortable here in the united states it's an in the league and that's why it's been easier for me to to play well here do you like about the US you said it you think it's just easy easy lifestyle you know and the way the vibe of everything and of course i've been i've been i feel like i've been lucky with my teammates in how been welcomed of course but in general i really liked her how about this what is is it like to be a number nine who plays on a team with slots on for me it includes a lot of running but i mean it was of course as i grew up it was slot on his one of your idelson else in all it is a big person he's he's a great footballer so for me it was amazing to play with a guy but playing with the guy was was difficult you could see that not on the field that he is such a massive personality has such a sort of weight of expectations is that he demands so much from others that it may be sometimes hard to play with them did you how did you find his personality within the team because we also hear behind the scenes it's much different than on the field i think for me he's very funny guy he's he's he's a cool guy and his way but he's he's specialist is you say he's he's demanding personally i think it's not easy for everyone to be around a guy with that kind of winner mentality so it's its pros and cons what did you see in training from him that you've never seen before because i see the roundhouse kick goal against tronto see you see the things he doesn't games after imagine in what he's doing and training him in most players in the world i feel they have their skills that's pretty normal by he can do stuff that nobody else can you know like especially where he's fee can reach you know and it's also his technique and some of the offensive things vision that he has it's of course on another level than everybody else the galaxy five stars on the chest you new club DC united has four you're a club with a lotta history big signing edison florida's you were a big signing for them last year this is now in large part your team to score the goals it doesn't very offensive for the season i wanna smash everything yeah i mean i really i really want to score a lot more golsen i've i've done before now and i want to prove myself and i also want that extra star for my team so f- so it's an exciting year from what have you envisioned for yourself oh for this team when you think about the addition of mill assad with flora's coming in what has been told you what do you expect i think defensively simply solid last year and now we're adding some offensive pieces that for me as a striker is very exciting so you have a lot of the people that can give me assist smiling these days no doubt give me one travel suggestion before we get chatty rolla where would you send me as a citizen of the world to experience something new something different that i've never experienced before norway where norway the mountains to go skiing go skiing there so i can't believe okay i'll tell swedish producer about that now i'm just norwegian he's no reason ola kamara thank you big year for all the camara and DC united how many goals you think he got them ola ola doing this a lot yeah how's it the over under sixteen and a half that's exac going to say i'm gonna go over brilliant unmatched meanwhile in the same way attends the intellect but say over under over the right side eight of sixteen and a half say i'm going to put him at eighteen eighteen yeah i think what we think are the chances he goes over.

Bat Soup, Anyone? How Viruses Transfer From Animals To Humans - Yahoo News
"Let's get back to the interview. Fresh air's Dave Davies recorded yesterday with science writer. David common about the new Corona Rona virus epidemic which broke out in Wuhan China. Kwame ince's the corona virus is just the latest example of how were increasingly contracting dangerous. Viral infections since from animals in his book spillover published in Twenty twelve kwame attractive viruses spilled over from animals to infect humans with HIV West S. Nile fever anthrax. Bola and another from the corona virus family SARS severe acute respiratory syndrome which also emerged in China China. You know you're right. That as scientists tried to track down the source of the SARS virus back in two thousand three and four. They focused on this practice in southern China of eating and in some cases raising wild animals. Not kind of things that you typically think of as food or or where we don't want to just explain this trend and how it figured you're into this yes There is a vogue. There has been a vogue for eating wildlife wild animals when I was in Southern China researching searching the book only briefly. I got to see some of these markets. Where all form of wild animal were on sale A lot of the trade by the time I got there had gone underground because it was suppressed after the SARS outbreak but then it gradually came back and it had been allowed to continue in you again and proliferate win this new virus began but if you go into a live market and you see cages containing bats stacked upon cages containing porcupines stacked upon cages containing palm civics stacked upon cages containing chickens and hygiene is not great and and the animals are defecating on one. Another it's just a natural mixing bowl situation for viruses. It's very very dangerous situation and and one of the things that it allows. Dave is something that we haven't mentioned. I think so far and that is the occurrence of of amplifying hosts hosts that are not the reservoir host the permanent hiding ground of a new virus but represent intermediates between the reservoir of our host and the human population for instance those horses in Australia. From the point of view of a horse they were ultimate hosts and they were being killed by this virus but from the human point of view they were amplifier hosts the virus got into them it multiplied abundantly it caused them to froth and Chauque and bleed through their nostrils veterinarians and trainers. Were trying to take care of them. They amplified the virus. So that One trainer in one stable form and got very sick from that virus in the case of this new corona virus. One of the questions is was there. An amplifier host in that wet market where these cages are stacked are called wet markets white wire called wet markets. Well assume they're called wet markets because the animals are alive alive rather than butchered and in dead and refrigerated They're also wet. Because there's there's water flowing everywhere. They usually have seafood as well as as wild mammals and birds As I said hygiene isn't great. Animals are being butchered on plywood. Boards blood is flowing down into the gutters in the water and there is just a great Liquidity Mix in these markets at at their worst now when scientists were trying to track down the origin of the SARS virus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome which was associated with the virus in in the early two thousands. They eventually focused focused on something called the civic cat What is that? That's right the civic cat is not really a cat. It's more accurately called the palm palm civic the civic type of mammal that belongs to the to the family of Mongooses But it's a it's a medium sized animal and and it is both captured from the wild for food and captive bred and raised for food And it was the first big eggs suspect of In the SARS outbreak It was found that some of the people who got sick very early on had eaten a butchered civic and so in the civic head though the the antibody for this this virus right and they and they tested him civics and they found they found evidence of the virus. They found antibodies. Antibodies or fragments of DNA A. R. N. A.. In these civics suggesting that they had been infected with the virus and That didn't prove they were the reservoir host but it made them the number one suspect until a couple of Chinese scientists did further work and they established that in fact virus was not living permanently in the civic population in the wild or in captivity. It was it had a different reservoir host it was living in bats and it had passed presumably market somewhere it had passed from a bat into one or more sits and they became the amplifier host. Right and the the Chinese government I think decreed that all sits in captivity would be slaughtered. Right that's right. Thousands of sits in captivity were butchered an an electric electrocuted and and smothered and drowned In this I panicked blind reaction in China to the SARS outbreak. Now when you were looking at you actually went to China with and spent some time in the field with people who were investigating this right. Tell us tell us about that experience. I I went. I went with a fellow named Alexi. Kamara was working as a researcher for a group. That's called ECO health alliance based in New York A group of disease scientists who study see these emerging viruses these emerging pathogens in animals around the world. They generally have cross training in Virology Veterinary Medicine Ecology combinations nations of skills so Alexi was one of them Alexi and a number of Chinese colleagues and I flew to a city called Gua Lynn In the province of Guangdong southern China and we went out climbing into into caves that caves in the karst mountains the limestone stone mountains and hills outside of the city of Gwynn Looking to trap Various different kinds of small bats insectivores bats not giant fruit bats Small bats at lived in these caves including Horseshoe bats which is a particular group of bats so that Alexi and his colleagues could draw draw blood samples and test those for Looking for the SAR SARS virus that point or or any other virus that suspect unit. Just describe a little bit of what what it felt like to be trapping bats and these caves well. It was a little bit claustrophobic. It's not for everybody. Had Castle Castro. We climbed through. We climbed on our bellies through a very low hole to get into one of these caves. We had we had to squirm down and then and up through this whole to get into the cave and then the cave opened out and Alexi and his Chinese colleagues had essentially pillowcases and butterfly nets. And that's how we caught these bats. The Bat started flying around and they would catch them in butterfly nets and they were wearing gloves and and they would untangle a bat from a butterfly net and then Drop it into one of these cloth bags that were like pillowcases. And in this case as I recall they they would tire tied the knot often then handed to me and I would go over and and hanging on sort of a clothesline. So that the bad dangle and we were doing this I don't know if we were in there for a couple of hours oddly enough. We were not wearing masks of any sort we were not wearing with the called. Personal Protective Equipment has met suits or anything and and described this in the book. I asked Alexi. Why the hell
"kamara" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Fighting with the AMA Caveman again. It's about the tenth Hanser Twelfth Time over the years that we had a back and forth because any time any of us in the mainstream get near their sport they I always wanted to be a part of the mainstream but they want us away from their sport because we don't know as much as they do because every time you reference anime fans you call them cavemen or knuckle knuckle draggers It's not all of them. It's just the loudest ones that object to things like calling it artistic cockfighting. If it's some sort of insult gladdy changes Qatar cockfighting. which but I've always I've always supplemented the human cockfighting with the idea that I respect the arts? It's that I love the sport even though it's barbaric I love the sport because it does. I appreciate the part that they want me to appreciate which is as the pitting of arts against each other in the in the violence sphere but I am not just those things like I can't they don't allow you these people. I speak week of to merely like the sport and appreciate the arch. You have to like it exactly the way they do which comes without ever calling it human cockfighting or are pointing out any of the things that make the sports so uncivilized. It's that simple though. You have to appreciate the sport and see the artistry in the sport the way they do. Don't they just want their sports grow. That annoys me. Hold on their own home but they wanted that for years. What I WANNA see okay? But here's the thing I understand that. That's your viewpoint on this because you're the guy who says my temperatures the way the temperature has to be. I'm saying that in these conversations that I have had with all of these people it starts with me just wanting to have a conversation to appreciate the thing that they do as well while also talking about where it's cracks and flaws are and what ends up coming back to me is some version of insult. Always like that's the way the conversations go they do they're not conversations and so I will continue to do it here and they will continue to do it where they do it. Launched at me and I will continue due to Create these you know. One of the websites put out that this is the point that me and Stephen Smith are missing on. Joe Rogan's Wiggins criticism. I'm not aligned with Stephen a Smith on this. I understand why you wouldn't want the guy who comes in with the polarizing strident opinions of so in so shocked or so and so's equator. I get why you wouldn't want that and you're fighting sport. Everyone who steps into that octagon stripped down to just their vulnerability that it is unbelievably brave. Just getting in there and so we don't want the normal analysis of Oh. The Spurs are soft or some sort of criticism that you're swiping. It's heavy handed Stephen. I some with boxing to like it is in the absence of profound expertise. which is what some of these guys have hat? Sometimes you hit them with the side swipes. That are the paint by numbers. This is who I am. This is the guy do on television where I'm the guy who argues with with another guy and the thing that we do. Is We question. Someone's character manhood questioned some coaches decision. Something else and and then there's the back and forth that happens there I get Stephen Smith would tell you himself. He is not the expert of many of the people watching. I would tell tell you myself that while I like the sport and follow the fighters. I am not the expert that you are but you don't get to appreciate this sport more than I do you just because every once in a while I have some benign criticism of it or because you were there I right now. I want to just let that sit. And I'm hoping that that's the clip that goes viral today. I'm hoping that we I want one of these clips today means go viral. You Look Great. I've been sitting here marveling at you. I mean your dress. You're serving a death punishment on just for Super Bowl Week every time. Hi My come in here in one of these costumes. You guys say you need to make this year look. This is incredible. You dress like a member of the black hole. And it's honestly one of the best like raiders fans costume. I ever seen. You do have a resemblance to eazy e a little bit. But it's more like greasy up up. Put It on the poll. Guillermo does Dan today have a resemblance to eazy e And also put on the poll. was there any circumstance that that you thought. Dan would ever have a resemblance to easy Some a little swollen for those of you who do not know. I'm wearing a bit of a cemetery. -tary shoulder pads on my on my shoulders And the goal of today's show and I was supposed to do this yesterday but that would have been awkward Because as you had all the Kobe Bryant stuff going on and and it would have felt a disrespectful. That was a good call. On your part that would have also gone viral though and I would have been less comfortable trouble with that character would have been assassinated. One of the one of the goals Whenever we do these grid of death punishments is we want one one of our segments to end up spreading on sportscenter or somewhere else with no real ability to explain why it is one of the participants here is dressed the way that he is so look for? The places is of what it is that I could do if you have some important. Social commentary anywhere that that I have to give or just anything. Super Bowl related The good thing is Alvin. Kamara going to be on with us today if we could break news with one of these guys. That's the easiest swayed do it. Hey are you going to hold out do you WanNa be traded the NFL Really you know what you gotta do. Do you have insight tell us. Yeah you guys it is. Yeah you guys got robbed last year. Are The reps out to get you but you feel like maybe you accomplish your goal today with your UFC. Stance may don't know I don't no. I'm just explaining to people that that's why I started the show talking about that for four minutes because now what I would like them to be arguing with that. I want them to argue. I want that to ended up on the EH blogs and then it spreads and then people are arguing with someone who looks like this and hopefully they can realize. Hey Oh. That's that show that shows not I guarantee not that the ESPN anime twitter accounts GonNa put this out there. They're usually great about clipping anytime anyone talks. MMA on these platforms. Okay so hopefully they just cut it before we Pulled back the curtain and said what it is that the effort was but I am but I am interested in the conversation though because the criticism of Joe Rogan is. It's bad for the sport. Have Stephen a Smith around it and I just think a fairer criticism is if you're going to come to the sport then then please do so in a way. That is respectful in your analysis. You cannot call Sironi some sort of coward. All Stephen. A Smith said was that he didn't show up but every area was in studio with us last week Aerial Hawaii who is as you've called them like one of the most respected if not the most respected respected journalistic voice in that sport and he said the criticism was absolutely valid moreover this was a criticism that those MMA fans have been saying for years but the fans what what they do is they simply reject and this is not up for Dispute Ariel told us they rejected Gus Johnson just because like they don't want but gosh I mean come uh-huh so what would fight. Slow what would real van say about. What ceremony did that night? Because he didn't show up the walk to the octagon for Connor was longer longer than the actual. Okay apply now. That's all I'm saying is that I understand the criticism when it goes from. You could say didn't didn't show up but when you start with the inferences toward cowardice that doesn't exist in that sport the moment those guys get in there. That's not something that's making an appearance and so I understand why they would find that offensive even while the while. The criticism is valid. I get why m a fantasy saying. Don't call our guys coward. That's a D. That's a decorated fighter like chocolate. Lost the end. It wasn't because he was a cowardice because he was kind of spent Conor McGregor took out a guy quickly who was there and present and wanted to be there and present an excellent and just wasn't yappy how can you call the winningest fighter in. UFC history a a coward. Stephen I know. But that's the part but that's the part that's where the criticism I understand it if I understand them saying but he also said Connor didn't in show anybody enough and I don't think how connor could have looked any better really about tarred who Sassy Stugatz sexy when you're seeing these live at our show with those two guys on. ESPN radio. So I'm getting a barrage via twitter. If there's any take I care about less than Stephen a Smith's it's lebatardshow. His last name translates to the bastard. or so I'm told. Oh you don't get the show. Lebatardshow is just as big a troll as Stephen a Smith. He's a contrarian hoping just for people to get mad and.

A Place Where The Opioid Problem Is Upside Down
"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply all right here in the United States too much access to opioids has led to rampant addiction and overdose but we're going to hear from a part of the world facing the exact opposite problem a lack of powerful pain medications in the Gambia in West Africa. Doctors want greater access to opioids. They say they can help speed a patient's recovery. NPR's Jason Bovine traveled there recently as part of our ongoing look at treating pain and and the story does contain some uncomfortable medical details. It's mid morning at the Gambia's only teaching hospital orthopedic Surgeon Cabot Marina is talking with several nurses about two operations that they're about to start. I just bring it into the United States. It's not going to be perfect. MARINA IS A fit thirty seven year old. He's pulling on scrubs. He and his staff are looking up an X. Rays of leg bones and a light box on the wall. A curtain divides the operating room into on the left is a fourteen year old. He fractured his knee in a soccer game in a collision goalie. His parents say he almost scored on the right is a twenty nine year old man. He was in a nasty car crash a week earlier and Tibia is now protruding coming from his Shin Doctrine says operations like these pain is unavoidable hammers and saws and Gills and things like that so so afterwards old patients expected how some pain but in the Gambia managing that pain can be difficult. I the Gambia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Many medications including painkillers are in short supply and even if Moreno can get powerful opioids for his patients nurses on the general wards aren't trained to administer or monitor them. Dr Moreno spent the last thirteen years working in the United Kingdom. He says one of the striking things about returning. Home is the contrast pain management everyone I I end up. I have to leave the world when they were doing dressings because I couldn't handle the screams but you get used to it which is not great but it's what you have to do. In order to survive in the environment lived in the operating room. Dr Moreno does have access to anesthesia for the two surgeries on this day. Each patient will get a spinal block. It makes their legs. Go numb highly effective. You've at one point the fourteen year old asks. What's my leg doing up there as a nurse moves them around on the bed patient on the right is getting a steel pin driven vertically from mm-hmm is need to almost as ankle to stabilize his broken? Tibia in the UK. Both these patients would be completely asleep under general anesthesia but not here. That's partly because this country of two million people doesn't have any anesthesiologists. The only ones working in the Gambia are doctors on loan from China or Cuba so ninety eight percent of Anaesthesia Services Don byas Mahmoud El Moussa borrow heads the College of Nursing at the American International University West Africa in the Gambian capital bright across the country all had facilities well rations stick. Please where what you find the semester these specially trained nurses. I can do many of the procedures that full anesthesiologist would but there aren't many of them and they tend to work mainly in surgical operating rooms they aren't present and labor in delivery wards leaving most women here to give birth with no pain medication at all back at the surgical ward doctrine just finished resetting setting the bones and the teenagers knee he twisted the leg back into place drilled three hole through the top of the knee and secured the joint with wires sitting have to open the skin off but it still we'll be painful think you saw how. I had to bend it back into place the start and he will be sore afterwards. If I have been doing this operation in England the boy would have gotten a local anesthetic around the joint ease the pain as he wakes up but again not here the pain meds that are readily available in the Gambia are generic versions of pilot and advil an aspirin. The only narcotic clinicians sometimes dispense is a synthetic opioid called tram at all. It's considered less powerful and less addictive than opioids like oxycodone or morphine. Meanwhile the operation on the other table is continuing north comedic surgeon from China is literally hammering Rod until the twenty nine year olds leg first couple of attempts didn't go so well. I may have to back out the Pan A. and try again but doctrine is confident. It will all work. He says these pins are highly effective before they made up and walking and they usually went home. even the next day broken leg one day walking out onto the streets of London the next but only because their pain was well controlled with opioids doctrine doesn't predict such a tranquil post surgical recovery for this guy. The patient is clearly uncomfortable gripping the table as the hammering continues and he still under under the spinal anesthetic off in about six hours time then there's usually some screaming on the words and and it just takes some getting used to the patient and stuff as well in the absence of a strong pain medication. It'll be several days. Maybe a week before this man can put any weight on his leg. These patients are also likely elite experience flare ups of what Dr McCall's breakthrough pain in the UK Moreno with treat this with oral morphine but morphine isn't available on the wards here for the fourteen year old who just had knee surgery his recovery starts on a trip on a Gurney to the pediatric ward. The Children's Ward is actually sleep in another building across the street from the main hospital. There are no rails on the Gurney and he slides around as the orderly pushes him through the potholed streets. Finally he arrives at the crowded kids ward. His legs are still numb from the anesthetic during surgery his father Hassan Manual. Camara says they know his recovery will take time where they were. Just try to support him as much as possible. Kamara worries about his son being in pain but he recognizes that he just had surgery. He doesn't expect his son to be comfortable. Dr Moreno wishes he had stronger pain meds for his patients. This teen will be hurting for the the next few days but despite that Renna says this operation was a success is now he's going to straight Meghan into suffer the rest they may not have access a strong opioids but Dr Moreno and the other caregivers here have confidence that their patients will heal and eventually the pain will go away Jason Bobi.

"kamara" Discussed on The NFL Show
"Respect Alvin Kamara by because we're not talking enough about that. So that is the side of it that I feel like if you play man coverage against the saints. They're going to get destroyed because those linebackers are not built and are not good enough to stick with Kamara. If you're going to sell him remember that the touchdown the taste health through the came back. If you're gonna use him vertically like so many good coaches have done over the last two years. Think about girly think about what the chiefs have done all of that. Then I think that it's going to be a problem. I think he is going to be the most important offensive weapon. They have despite what Michael Thomas one has done all season and two did against the Rams the first time around do you remember when there was that weird thing that went around ten years ago, but how Reggie Bush was most important Saint because of what he did to defense or something. And it wasn't true at all at that such an eight. NFL live meme was like we got everage Bush in the field, and it showed that Reggie Bush. When he was often field was significantly that. So, but I actually think that that is actually true of Alvin Kamara he is what people thought maybe someone like Reggie Bush would be which is that the entire defense has to account for him. And they changed looks and without someone without someone dynamically that in the backfield Michael Thomas getting very different looks. This was not a matter. The eagles were not just letting Michael they knew Michael Thomas is not letting him get those sort of matchups just because they wanted to that was not by choice. The saints defense gives you a lot of looks than give Michael Thomas favorable matchups. That's how you have a ninety percent comp- catch rate because you're getting favorable books. All the time because Sean Payton is good your breezes. Good Alvin Kamara Gooden on offense is good. They have such. I mean, I I wrote about I talked about this play a little bit. But talked about Zack lime yesterday. We were just discussing the one concept where he was like third and thirteen and breeze moved the the the cover to corner with his is this item. Thomas kind of drifted into that spot. That's a type of stuff it. You just can't count for. There's nothing to do. You can run the per-. Perfect defense, and they're going to beat you. And I think that's why they're so dangerous to me is because you can dial up the right call it can be the right thing against that route combination. And it doesn't matter if you don't get to him because he's gonna find a way I would like to talk briefly. It's kind of funny to me. I wrote a story on dot com today about sort of the this generation of older quarterbacks. And what they mean for team building. How they got here. What they mean for offense all that allowed Jess and one of the funniest points that was made was by Matt Hasselbeck, and he said, basically becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. When you start talking about quarterbacks we've seen everything drew Brees Tom Brady, and what ends up happening is defensive coordinator say, well, he's seen everything. So we can't blitz. He's going to torture this blitz. And then what happens is you end up getting blitzed a lot less than you. Should you end up getting more maybe vanilla looks and you stay healthier than you should. And you just keep going. That's that's part of it is defensive coordinator is not exactly sending the house. That's so true. Just think about. All the kind of the numbers and the rates for like getting blitz because people like well the way to beat Brady's. You could only bring four and that's rooted in truth because at one point it was the way to do it. But those things just kind of endure and kind of a way that's really funny. Well, it's you just hear like, it's all very anecdotal. So so yes. Oh, you could never butts Peyton Manning. There was that story that Jon Gruden told years ago about times hit he sent the house against Peyton Manning and payment through touchdown like fifty or touch any walk past Jon Gruden. So are you kidding me?.

Quicken Loans apply simply understand fully mortgage confidently. We'll continue our NFL conversation. Sam Monson pro football focus lead analyst Sam how you doing? What's going on buddy? I'm doing great excellent. You know, it's funny this week. I heard I don't know if you heard this. But. Greg Williams who to me. Why don't really work in Cleveland locally in the week? And I have no desire for Greg Williams to remain the long-term coach Gregg Williams. I think he's about as old school is old school gets and he referred to some advanced analytics this week. And I almost was brought to tears Sam because well, I think I think that all sports need to have a good balance between old school scouting and new school analytics you'll so many old school football guys are so hesitant look where we are in baseball. Now. Right. The sport is completely run. Everybody has an analytics department in basketball and football is dragging their feet a little bit more in some organizations, but the here an old school coach like Greg Williams referred to some advanced analytics. That was that was wild for me to hear it must have. I don't know if you heard it. But it probably would've made you happy. If you did. Yeah. I think you're right football is behind baseball. And how that kind of stuff is gone, but everybody understands that it can help you how you present it to all of these people know, so head coaches are often the last guy to get on board. But it's because you need to present it to them in in the right away. Now, there's a ton of ways that say the PS database can help is those guys. But if you come to them initially where you know, something they don't wanna hear they're not going to buy. But if you immediately show them something, you know, a fancy pretty grasp the chosen exactly what they've been saying for years, suddenly they're all on board. So I think a lot of teams the league you're just starting to sort of see this time where the analytics guys or people that have been using the stuff within the Bill. Building for years are finally starting to figure out how to present it to coaches added presented to general manager is and you know, the guys bad again in front of the media. And that's when you're starting to see this filter out. I think it's been used a lot within the building for years already. But now we're starting to see those guys use it on a daily basis and get the headline stuff sent to them in a way that they're they're much more comfortable with gesturing at an and actually taking it on board. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analysts Sam. Baker Mayfield has had a tremendous season. As a rookie as put up some big old school numbers if you will. But when when you went from a pro football, focus perspective when you guys run the numbers on what he's done. How would how does he great out compared to some other rookie quarterback's of the past? Yeah. I think you do need to go to quarterbacks with a pass because he hadn't shoulders above any other rookie season right now. He's a top ten grade quarterback in the NFL. He's tense overall. Just one physician behind Russell Wilson. So you're already talking about it really really well graded player right off the five. And obviously pro football focus was very high invade your Mayfield coming out were the guy is the winter by for him saying that he was the best prospect in this draft in it really wasn't close to the next guy. I think so far. That's that is being born out. We have seen better performances in the past rookies. I think that twenty twelve season was a pretty incredible year for rookie performances. Obviously it didn't last because RG three in particular had a phenomenal season that year, and then tours and really hasn't been the same player since. But you know, Baker Mayfield is looking as good as we've seen any rookie quarterback. Look probably dating by twenty twelve season. We're seeing some really impressive play from him. And I think his play generally has been better than even the statistics suggest because you had one of the highest rates in the NFL right five and drop rates. And unlike most of the times when a receiver drops the ball, it's an incomplete passes. It's not doing that much damage to your passer rating, or whatever but Baker mayfield's have multiple assets that have been hit his receivers and my hands and ended up as interceptions. So those are taking a sledgehammer to operating over the course of the season. It's ninety three. Point four right now. And this is a season where passing is exploded operating ninety three point four is nice great at the moment. But it's his performance has been way better than that. We're talking with Sam Monson lead analyst pro football, focus Sam, let's talk about another rookie and that saquon Barkley who probably be battling Baker Mayfield for rookie of the year. From an offensive standpoint. There's been other good rookie running back but saquon Barkley make over two thousand total yards this season. How does he compare to Todd Gurley Leonard four nets and some of the other big rookie seasons from running backs? Yeah. I mean saquon Barkley just moved into first edition CFS running back rankings. He's the the number one guy right now through the through part of the season. He's been incredible. He's been everything that everybody who was championing him saying he would be coming out. I think he's been better than we thought. He might be there. The idea that he was a perfect running back prospect that don't think really holds up work holes in his game in particular. This tendency to to be a bit. Reggie Bush in terms of wanting to balance everything outside to look for that clay, but he's gotten a lot better in his first year at not doing that at taking ugly yards when they're there. And that's all there to be had. And it's still maximizing goes explosive plays getting huge games. Those are there. So he has been fantastic. I think again he's been as good as any rookie running back the receipt for a number of years. Really? He's I guess he's played as well. As Alvin Kamara did last year as a rookie on he's done more fulltime base. So he already has you know, two hundred more snaps than Kamara managed all last season playing that same kind of rate is Amari Cooper. Has memorial Cooper's play been much better. Or is just a the players around him made him much better. I think it's a bit of both, you know, playing wide receiver it so difficult to play. Well, if the ball isn't coming in your direction off the ball is coming in your direction in attachable manner. Having you can do about it. There's only so much fancy route running against air. You can do if the ball isn't coming your way. So I think we're seeing Amari Cooper was always a quality route runaround player that would get consistently open. And now we're seeing what happens when you target that guy. He's still a very good player and I play put up big numbers. And obviously, that's that's meaning that his greatest better because he's being given the ball and that talent is being maximized. So you know, I think that that was always there that that talent that play was always inherited his game. Even in Oakland. The raiders just weren't making use of it. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analyst. Sam. I know you guys today had an article about projecting Cuyler Murray's pro potential. I'm curious because obviously he's a top ten pick and major league baseball. He's giving compared to Ricky Henderson. He signed a four and a half million dollar bonus. There would have to give it back obviously at a even a better year than Baker Mayfield did this past year in college, which is hard to believe. But obviously, you know, people make a thing about the thing about Baker mayfield's hike, which I thought was over rated. But obviously calamari isn't even close those big as as Baker Mayfield. A what is his potential d do you think he could be a good NFL quarterback? I think he could be, you know, you're right people that the highest the big question Mark because people did make an issue out of Baker Mayfield. Tighter on Baker Mayfield is short for an NFL quarterback. But not, you know, it's not unprecedented. We've seen quarterbacks Baker Mayfield type successful in the past. They're not obviously, not as many as there are as you know, six with three quarterbacks, but those guys have existed and they've been good in the past. I don't I don't know that we've ever seen quarterback that is Kyla Murray's Hite house significant success at the end up, right? You know, he is going to be when we get the official number on him. If it ever gets that far he's going to be significantly shorter than even a guy like Russell Wilson. And you would be in legitimately uncharted territory. When it comes to that. Now, if you're going to do that, you have to be there has to be something else to say, well, okay. That's not going to be a problem because of this and his grading has been incredible. His is great this season at Oklahoma has been basically everything is as as good. As Baker mayfield's grade had been on that was the best we've ever seen from a quarterback, right? The best seasons we've ever seen at college with one of his own. So he has a level of the best play. We've ever seen coming out of college from a college quarterback. And we've been doing this going back to two thousand fourteen but we've seen some pretty good quarterbacks over that's fine. You know, we went back, and we also graded James Winstons freshman seasons. We have got Carson Wentz you got Jared Goff. We've got right. And they got all these guys and Carl Amari stacks up to those guys. Sorry.

"What a Sunday and UEFA nations league, so many great matches. But we gotta start at Wembley England and Croatia winner-takes-all England wins. They win the group. Croatia wins. They win the group draw. Spain wins the group everybody got that. Yeah. Yeah. That second minute trouble here for Jordan Pickford onto ravage though. Take advantage pick for something. He can pick it up since the ball is coming from bell. But ravage doesn't take advantage of the opportunity eleventh minute nights past year. Harry Kane Raheem sterling Hellenic the big stops. What we see from him stealing a lot. These days taken up a much more central position using these pace to get behind finishing in the final Ha's improved. And it just. In the ensuing corner. Kick Harry Kane point blank reign. Why it open, and I mean, why open Harry Kane nut good. Extinct minute. Beat sterling to the ball. Harry Kane no goalie per staffer denied then is another big stop ripple from Dell on these reconfirmed, stealing noses pasted by six or seven goalkeeper takes head can publish. It are taking the touch the FOX them. The jazz was growing nil at the half fifty second minute. Marcus rash. Furred sterling another stop from the Croatian. The only sterling has got to take it for time. He doesn't know pretended to goes away if seventh minute and many Croatia highlights, here's one. Andrei Kamara dancing around can't find a window. He found one little help. But he found one say once normal you take that many touches invokes going wait from goal you really get the finished. But monitoring what the space. We'll join stones on on his backside and just opened up from though Croatia winning the group at this point in the match in England relegated. Seventy eight minute long. Throw ingesting lindgaard.

New Orleans Saints most likely days away from signing Brandon Marshal
"We got reports during the week that the saints worked out both Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall. Member. Brandon Marshall started this season in Seattle was cut by the Seahawks last week. Well, now, according to reports out of New Orleans Brandon Marshall is going to sign with the saints probably tomorrow or Tuesday. So they'll turn to him and give him a shot because they really are thin. I mean, yeah, they have they have Mike and Alvin Kamara Mark Ingram is back. But there's still there's they're thin.
"kamara" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"He only had a hundred and sixteen yards instrumental from not maybe only had a little much, but he got the idea. He didn't have like a two hundred yard game like Micheal Thomas, but in terms of his split in terms of the Kerry, and touch but for him. He got twenty three touches in this game to Mark Ingram. He had a ten excuse me. Ten touches. He did fumble. Kamara had the three touchdowns Ingram had that incredible pass block that basically backdrop on Dante Fowler near the goal line. But in terms of touches twenty two for Kamara at ten for Ingram is that the sort of split you think the saints should try and aim for over the the rest of the season. That's just real question. Kamara last year, so all kinds of records at the ball outsiders for for what he did give him the the volume of his carries and volume of catches virtually unprecedented. And of course, he's he's fallen back this year just because he had to. What are you sort of the top? There's nowhere to go. But the middle of the pack. So he's been human this year and Ingram is you know, the veterans you've got more of a track record. So you can't take it game by game one, you know, one game at a time when played at time on I'm not going to question. Something's dumb player usage. He he he's better at this than I am. So I'm not gonna quit will that too much. Now that said you if you asked me if I had one play where I needed to pick up a first down to win a game. I'm going to have more on the field every time. But I like I say, I'm not I'm not gonna question. What what something was doing? Yeah. That's fair. And I I do think that there's got to be a balance right in terms of how you use Kamar. Like you said last year. There's gotta be a balancing you also want to, you know, use it talk about you know, making sure the quarterback stay safe already Mexican bigger bigger than the quarterbacks. And you know, the us. Guys to make sure both guys are available in January. Yeah. And I think they helped drew Brees in different ways. Right. Where where marketing can have that terrifying? Pass Baca total back love of a pass block. But Kamar is going to scare team simplicity and sending pressure at drew Brees. Just by being a threat in the passing without ever having to touch another defensive player and Ingram. Catch the ball as well to me. That's a little too simplistic. But you get the idea said Kamara last year six point one yards per carry ten point two yards per section this year only four point four yards per carry eight point four yards per reception, his his individual deviate numbers down. But of course, still playing and an extremely high level and still an extremely impactful back when it comes to this part of the stance offense. Now, I brought up Michael Thomas numbers are incredibly even heading into this game. He had like five or six incompletions all seasons nNcholas and then this game targets twelve catches two hundred eleven yards. The game sealing touchdown for the saints. And of course, you not when I'm going. To ask you that incident. He scored a touchdown. He went to the end zone. He grabbed a flip phone in a similar fashion to Joe horn from two thousand three the seemed to spark a lot of discussion on Twitter did this bother you given the game situation. And given the fact that it costs these saints fifteen yards and will likely cost. Michael Thomas, several tens of thousands of dollars. Oh where to begin with this? First of all busy, play bother me know, what a non I think, it was awesome. Joe horn, somebody got a hold of him and asked him he said, it it moved to tears. Let him know that people still remember him. You know, what life out of the white, Mike hard Brexit NFL players? And you know, that little that little, you know, a lots of Joe, I think it's really really stupid..
"kamara" Discussed on GSMC Football Podcast
"So the focus coming into the game, of course was on the offenses but in particular Todd Gurley in Alvin Kamara Todd Gurley thirteen carry sixty eight yards a touchdown six receptions, but only eleven yards for Todd Gurley as the saints did a really good job at stopping him at limiting his effect on the game. But on the flip side Alvin Kamara nineteen carries eighty two yards two touchdowns and four catches for thirty four and a touchdown Alvin Kamara he definitely outduelled girl yesterday as. We know what goes into it. And these performances blocking quarterback play and things like that. So what did you take from Alvin Kamara and Todd grows matchup yesterday, Allah Kamera is just a beast. Like, he's a huge part of that offense and that saints, and that's not then that's on a given credit. How good he is. And without him. I don't see this saints team being as good as it is right now, he is such a I think I think he did that much better than Gordon. And did you see that Watson the tight end for the same? God announce he has he his wife's pregnant with this touchdown celebration that awesome breeze at four touchdown passes to four different receivers. We know that's the kind of quarterback that drew Brees is that we know that's the type of offense that the saints have. So I'll say I'll ask you right now. Jeff are the saints the best team in the NFC. Yes. Better than the Rams Canada's prove the red of the Rams, they put it home. But do you do you think that they are better than them on a neutral field?.

So how concerned should I be? Do you think I, this is me if I'm you, I'm sitting tight. Okay. I kind of like the Alvin Kamara. Fantasy prospects.

"Association. For Alvin Kamara special until proven. Otherwise I know that's more. Than one word but after what he did last year. Look people are gonna soon he's going to do it all over again we've seen guys have a rough second year just from wear and, tear or the league is starting to figure out. What he does but I mean what a threat he is both is a runner and as a receiver and. The temptation will be to, use him more while Mark Ingram is out Sean Payton has said repeatedly they're not going to do that and I wonder if. He's saying that. To, protect, himself against giving, into the, temptation, to use more but that's. Going, to be the key you don't. Want to overwork a. Guy. Like that and ended up not having him at all Yeah I'll go I mean you're you're great he is special I'm going, to?

Offensive player of the year I think. Almost how not having Mark Ingram early, in, the year could be. A blessing in disguise and a lot of. Ways I thought there was a lot of plays last year Mark Ingram define player don't get me wrong but where I looked at. It I was like oh man if Alvin Kamara got this carry this would have gone to the house instead of going for a fifteen or twenty yard gain so I think he's gonna put. Them in the conversation for for.

"kamara" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"There is a big workload that that's is pulling rights and you know, honestly, Alvin kamera's efficiency cannot be discounted of the same way that you know Jamaal Charles used to have. You know, just low two hundred carries and he was fine. And he was obviously a stud fantasy football player. But I do struggle with that. Right? Like if I'm on the clock and Leonard for net and Alvin Kamara, are there. I mean, album chimera projects to have more fantasy points, but I still worry because I am always going to be an opportunity over talent type of guy. And if I know that someone's going to touch the ball, an extra hundred times. You know, chances are it's going to be better for that player usually. So I, I would say Alvin Kamara is a stud because of his officiency, but I'm not very excited right now in the first round to have him. Do you have anything you wanna add, Mike? Do you want to weigh in at all? I agree with Jason that he, I have him projected high. I've I've even recently pulled. I went, I took another look at his projections of fresh. I I took them down a little bit and he still is my fifth ranked running back. But he of these early guys in in the first round. He brings me the the the largest questions out of curiosity. I just checked all of the draft rankings elver at fantasy prose across over one hundred experts, and I am the highest on Alvin Kamara. Nobody hasn't been one and I am too. So there's only one only one other that believes in. In and I get it. Look, I push comes to shove in a mock draft in any draft. It's harder for me to stare down Zeke and chimera and make the choice of Alvin Kamara. But I do believe you wrote an article the case for Kamera early this off season..
