"Good at this and if somebody loses that's okay and then at the end of it all. The masculinity is spilling all over the field because the ravens are dancing on the emblem and masturbating and pooping. On the emblem and you. You saw what they did right because that was a game. I didn't see them master. It was all of that it was a game also that it was a game of two dogs fighting and we all saw the masculinity of the sport there. Yes defensive struggle then thank you. To god's that's another way to say it instead of the way that i said it but just to be clear no one was masturbating right. I'm not clear on that. I think we deserve more clarity on it. i'm just saying symbolically. Somebody was masturbating on. The emblem and others founded disrespectful and then they argued about francesa said francesa did actually say this. Hey the ravens were the better team but that was classless. Oh you knew. He's still working. That angle is forty years now. The high saw myself. I wanted to take something out. But i'm like going hate the ravens. Wait a minute. It's the height of football. We're still doing this. Francesa francis that we're still doing it. The height of football a violent sport the ravens were great. But i thought they were classless. Hey because they danced on the speaking that game was anybody listening with the sound on. Because everyone on my timeline. And i heard the audience sounds like you said it. Did louis riddick say that shit is electric. Was that on nickelodeon. No that's on. Espn there was no. There was an f. word during the game on nickelodeon that no eagle eagle son. Nate burleson was fantastic in the In that game by the way there was an f-bomb that the mikes picked up there on nickelodeon but louis riddick while calling the game and talking about lamar jackson. It seems is out from the clip. That i've seen says shit is electric. That's great came out of him because he's got the enthusiasm certainly can't play the sound but can you guys listen to it in private and confirmed. Heard while you're talking about. I heard that same clip and he definitely said shit. That is great. That is a new kind of broadcasting right there. Do you think he got called into an office or anything. I don't think he meant to do it. I think you know the mark jackson will do that to you is. Electric is electric electric dispute. This you got me shitting on the titans emblem masturbating and masturbating. Get back to what it is that mike saying those got. So you're kareem hunt and that's the sport you play and you're a tough guy and here everything that happens in terms of working towards your dreams because you've thrown it away by doing the wrong thing makes you sob in a car. And yes mike. That's what i remember about that video. He seemed a combination of grief stricken sort of despondent and also looped up on whatever it is that he was using to to medicate. Whatever that pain was who knows what was going on inside that guy. And i'm i'm with mike on this. If you could get honesty instead of one of these mythological just sort of in it's a redemption story and he's back in sports and to get like really the deep darkness of a eater. Where were you there in in that moment. Where were you in terms of feeling like you had ruined your life where move more importantly where are you now. Because you're pretty quiet after your suspension and everyone thought you were clean and i remember it all my timeline. I'm like well this makes sense but it came as a surprise. Just because you didn't hear anything around kareem hunt. I'm worried about kareem hunt and now are you still dealing with that sadness that drove you know pun intended to apparently self medicate and sobbed to an officer. Because you aren't playing in a super bowl is it an actual redemption story. The problem with that is kareem. Hunt probably has no idea where he was at that moment probably unless he's done some reflection and spoken with therapist he probably has no idea why you're just a shell of a man you think that That what was inside there sobbing. I'm not understanding what you're saying. You think that kareem hunt if you tell him where were you in that moment zombie out. I think he sobbing because he's confused. I don't know how. I got to a point where i could do stuff like this. I think i think for for mentally ill people from what i've read and kevin love did a great job. You will self medicaid okay. It till that medication stops working and then you have to go seek something. That's stronger and something that's better to get you back to a place where you feel somewhat normal and so i'm not certain kareem hunt knows exactly what's going on inside. His brain is not certainly knew. Exactly what was going on in that moment. Okay so correct me. If i'm wrong guys you guys are listening to this. And does this feel as we talk about it as apologised as it sounds to me in my ears because many people listening to this. I'm assuming that they would just say all that. Kareem hunt. Do you did the wrong thing. Get the hell out of the sport. And he did. He had to get out of the sport for a while and he didn't win a championship with his friends. Because of that. But you can hear anybody listening to this to god saying. Oh gimme a break. What's all this humanizing of kareem hunt. How about you treat the woman like a human and not do things to a woman. That shouldn't be done physically. We all agree with that. Were sympathetic to to the woman. And i think you know you said it pretty clearly like hey keep your hands off. Women don't beat them. Don't do it. But i also think there is not enough. We don't know enough about mental illness. There's not enough sensitivity around mental illness to know. Hey did kareem hunt do that. Because there's something going on in his brain that you know. Did he do that thing. Okay you're linking the two things yes you're linking mental illness to the the the rolling out. That's that's what i'm not doing. Not ruling it out. It should be said that again. He wasn't arrested for. There's all he ended up being with cited for speeding. But we're all making those logical leaps because the car smoked marijuana. That was an open container of vodka in there..

Christina who I've known my God I've we we have a mutual friend. So, I've known Christina for like ever, and then it was weird because as I was prepping for this interview, I listened to what we did about the Walter mccollough documentary and like a true astrologer. Lake Sheep. Like the predictions. So you can have to give to confirm all this. Now I mean it's kind of UNCANNY. The things she was saying about the documentary in. And then boom.

So this is an extension of that conversation. But so I wanted to have you on because of that but also to talk about representation in general were it's going next your thoughts. Let's start talking about I about this. You know I think it was a sensation. When it came out I mean. Yeah. I mean talk talk about it talk about. It feel. Wait. A minute. So we launched on Netflix July night. Oh my God. It feels like he'd launched like. Okay. So it's Depending on, you ask I'm sorry I depending when you ask either it was six days ago or six years ago Leno. Yeah. So tell me how has been has been. Changing or creatively. Awesome.

In you know the whole journey was just really crazy but just really the the end of his you know we finished the dock. Sundance November I walter died November second.

And then we I I mean I say this with both humility and pride, and then we got into every vessel that we wanted to get into. Between what the funding With release and the world shut down with Kobe and And so Some of those most of us all those actually. To others got cancelled. So it's minute really weird I felt that in the age to yeah it's been really weird. Re experiencing this all from my living room like from my kitchen table. Yeah. It's so crazy but A. Every day with a new thing you've you've heard of either new famous person who's seen it or we've gotten a new message from another part of the world somebody who's discovered Walter it's been a little spin really surreal but I mean now how fun I mean we made the movie 'cause like Latinos we will say as Latinos we had the leverage in the honor to have walters part of our lives for decades, and we made the movie because we wanted to share him with the world at large to see that actually happening. It's wild. It's crazy. So you know it's funny. You say because when I did talk to Christina was around Sundance. and. You. Know you go out there. I mean you guys I remember. I saw the pictures of you guys were like, Hey, we are premiering. Hey, we're. We're in the CAPE'S HEY, here we are.

We will his fights with Bruce Lee. And he's one of the greatest basketball players of all time but he calls himself of writer who played basketball basketball isn't who he was what he did. Writing is at the core of who he is. For example I asked him if he was playing for the Lakers now would he neil for the anthem or something and he said I get my pen and my passion I I'd write about it. Try to get it published. That has always been. My answer to one express myself. Especially when I was at odds with a number of the fourth reporters. Because I was thinking stuff beyond sports and the issues that were important to me were things that they didn't want to talk about. But would you do something on the court or no? No I wouldn't. Do It on the court. He's a writer at his core. That said get it. Twisted Kareem has always been down for the protest.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat: From Champions to Breakup to NBA Finals Opponents
"Brian Windhorst you have spent I think the last decade of your life trying to establish successfully establishing by the way that you are a lot more than the Lebron guy after knowing and covering him longer than any other human being in our business dating back to your high school days in Akron and then even through the time you famously up and moved to Miami to cover him there. So I just want to begin by apologising for pulling you back into the orbit of the same son we've been worshiping for now seventeen years well I wouldn't be here but for Lebron I, extraordinarily fortunate to meet him when He. Was Fourteen years old his move to Miami in open the door for me to come to ESPN. So I, Oh, Lebron immensely, and while all of us want to spread our wings as we get older certainly would never shy away from or or tire from looking at this this guy because he's been influential character in my life and thankfully and influential character in the history of the NBA. Yeah. That was incredibly well said but now it's time to get super messy because in this case in this series where there are so many different interesting storylines and angles, it does feel like past might be prologue. I want to go back ten years now. It is July ninth, two, thousand and ten and Lebron James is introduced to heat fans for the first time along with Dwayne Wade and Chris. Bosh introduced to the NBA really for the first time as this big three and Lebron is asked about his plan for winning championships in Miami. Three kings came down here to win championships. Not One championship to Lebron. Tell us about that not too on. Now. Now by. Not. Fix. So at that moment. How did the Miami Heat See Lebron era playing out? Pat Riley thought that that was. The Greatest Dynasty team that he had ever been able to be a part of. Better than magic and Kareem and James Worthy. Better. Than Shack and Dwayne Wade better than the hopeful teams that he had with the next with Patrick Ewing and Allan Houston John starks. He thought this was one of the greatest teams in the history of the NBA. He saw a horizon for a decade where they would be in the finals year after year after year and maybe they wouldn't win it every year and maybe they wouldn't win five six or seven Lebron said, but they would rack up. It was going to be his sunset team. He was going to ride this dynasty out and then go into the sunset and it was an incredible for years. It was one of the most prolific four year runs in the history of the NBA, but it wasn't that dynasty and Pat. Riley, has never one hundred percent ever gotten over.
Nick Cannon out at Viacom, keeps deal with Fox
"I'm Kim, masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as my usual banter buddy on the business, Matt Bellamy and Matt this is very unfortunate situation that has developed There's a sort of a back and forth in the black media world, their business antisemitic incidents most recently I think is nick. Cannon was on a podcast, endorsed some clearly antisemitic views about Jews controlling the media, and whatever the these are old tropes. I have to say to her credit. jemele hill weighed in saying this kind of talk is unacceptable as did Kareem abdul-jabbar and a column in the Hollywood reporter, but this nick cannon incident he led to him, being fired by Viacom CBS a, he initially clapped back, and said you know. The CBS was treating him unfairly, and then seemed to have major change of heart and apologized and said he was gonNA learn, and he was sorry for the hurt he had inflicted, but. What's interesting to me? Is that while he fired? He had this show on vh. One called wild and out and other things going on CBS. He also is the host of the mass singer on Fox and you know. How surprised are you that Fox said that apology is completely acceptable. We're hanging with you on the mass singer. Yeah, I mean this really does point to an interesting dichotomy that's emerging especially when you look at a lot of the heightened sensitivity around these issues of hate, speech and inappropriate comments that have really come about over the past six to eight months. Fox seems to be an outlier here and a lot of people have put it in monthly. Yes, a lot of people have pointed to Fox News, which obviously is the home of many incendiary comments? Tucker Carlson was recently forced to go on one of those quote, unquote preplanned Fox News vacations when it was revealed that his lead writer was revealed to be posting anonymously on racist and homophobic and sexist websites. This is always been you know. The Fox News is separate from Fox Broadcasting Corporation which is run out of La. It's all owned by the Murdoch's, but Fox's always positioned itself as we have the LA operation. And then we have this Fox News thing, but here you have. Have a very specific incident on a Fox show with the host of not just a Fox show the most popular show on Fox and the Murdoch seemed to be okay with it. It sends a message that this isn't just Fox News separate from the La Company. This is all one company in the Murdoch's seemed to be endorsing a very tolerant. Shall we say view of this kind of speech? Yeah, the MURDOCHS ARE GONNA Murdoch. You know they they run the company. It's theirs and. Walk is possibly even more conservative than his father Rupert I'm not saying that a person can't apologize. Learn but I think when you make comments like this that nick cannon made. You. You don't just return with no without missing a beat. It's like okay, thanks. That's great. That just feels to me like it needs a little bit more of a pause. And why don't you go away for a little while and seek the truth and come back when you you feel that you know there's been a an interval I. Don't know if you reversed the situation and he were white host. Making these kinds of comments about say black people. That host would still have a job. That's an interesting question I. Don't know, but what is also interesting is just the state of the. The Fox company now because until last year Fox owned a movie Studio Television Studio a lot of businesses that have traditionally more liberal and more creative types in them. Now they've gotten rid of all that stuff to Disney and the Fox company is Basically Fox, news sports and the Fox Broadcasting Company, and it really has allowed them to be insulated from what's going on in the rest of media, which has been very attuned to these issues and very intolerant of this kind of hate speech. Fox's now kind of sewing its own path. Yes, now it's a little more obvious. Thank you, Matt! Belen former editorial director of the Hollywood. Reporter joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters, and this is the Hollywood
Documentarian Cristina Costantini
"Your, First Film Science Fair at Sundance Wins Big award. The audience loves it. What did you learn from that first foray into directing? It's a lot more fun than investigative journalism I would say No, but I think I learned kind of the power of a hopeful story. I think hope and love. Are you know in short supply right now? And these kinds of stories can really change the way people think of the world and think of themselves, and so Walter came out of that in a way. I was looking for another story. That was also from my childhood. You know I started thinking what other worlds do I know really well. Not Everybody knows what other worlds made me feel warm and fuzzy as a kid and I think Walter Metadata was part of that. World for me, I grew up watching him every day as a kid with my grandmother and you know, he reminds me of my grandmother in many ways. He's the same age as my grandma there they have the same Hairdo, and so I started to wonder whatever happened to him, and you know in many ways he was he is. He was one hundred years ahead of his time. The first person I've ever seen that was gender queer. What we'd call now. It's just inspirational looking back. It's like. Could you were doing that at that time? You know nineteen forty in Puerto, Rico. You were being Walter McCullough. It's it's. Really. Inspirational so that's when I set out to find him. You set out to find out. What does that mean? So I started asking around univision and fusion and. Nano actually told me not Avila told me that there's a producer new. Who's also obsessed with Walter? Who you should talk to about this? Maybe he knows something so I called Alex, and he's like this is the weirdest thing I have. Another director who I'm supposed to talk to in ten minutes about doing a documentary about Alternate Telo, and I was like who is this person and his name is creamy taps, and he directed a film called. Dolphin, lover, which was a big fan of it's about a man who falls in love with Dolphin in the Florida like seaworld. And I had loved that film and I was like Oh amazing. I can't I mean I would love to talk to him. And we decided basically a ten minutes later on a phone call that we would all do the project together and yeah. It's been incredible experience Kareem track down. The niece of Walter through an estate sale, and then set up a phone call with Walter and it was. Yeah it was after the suit was. It was really insane to talk to. Walter Mark on the phone for the first time, and he said yes. Well that unprecedented access is notable because he is an has always been intensely private. So, how did you three persuade him to allow you to make the film? We rehearsed for that first conversation for hours and hours. What are the possible questions you could ask us? How would we answer it? You know what is what? What's the best angle on all of his questions? And we got on the phone, and he said Okay I. Have One question for you and we were like Mrs it. It's GonNa be really hard, and he's like. What are your astrological signs and so he went around. And like I'm a libra careens libra and Alex's deteriorates, and he said okay. That's great sounds good. I would love to do this film with you, so he was. He was in like in in from day one. He was psyched, but his idea of a documentary realized very quickly was very different from our idea he wanted. He was in front of a lens for fifty years. He was the most cameras trained person you can imagine. It's truly insane, and he has fifty years of rehearsed answers. He knows what he's going to say. To every question, you could ask him, and so it was really a process of spending a lot of time with him. At first, he thought this was going to. Just you know he was going. Going to be in full makeup and just telling the stories he always tells and I think it took a lot of time to explain to him that this might be different that this is you know we wanna see who you actually are without your makeup. What you do in your normal life and talking about bad stuff, particularly offensive to him. He did not want to talk about anything bad. You and that is the story of his life. You know he a lot goes wrong. He loses everything and even to get him to talk about. That was very difficult, so that was a big stumbling block for us in the first. Twenty interviews that we did with them so We've probably chat with him for like thirty five or forty days, and whenever we the cameras on kind of turned into an interview I remember. We told him once that we just wanted to. What he? What would he be doing if we weren't here? And he said reading a book, so he opened a book, and he started reading it, but he it was like onstage. He's A. He's a strained theater. Actor says like stage reading, or he was like having a conversation with a bunch was reading with his is.

"kareem" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"Black lives matter. It's it's. It's mainstream now Jacoby the the. Cancel culture into reality of watching a human being like George Floyd get killed with this need to his neck with people were dealing with the coronavirus under a pandemic is forced to Washington for nine minutes has been a unique awaken in in our country. They even Roger Goodell. In the NFL have to recognize if you wanted to be genuine. What they should have done P.. R. One. Oh One. You should gather about ten or fifteen owners and do a version of the video that the players did if forced you to do it. s would have showed me something. And, you say systemic. You mean ownership. GM's presidents coaches people in decision, making position empower not many blacks in your league. I WANNA see it. That's the action, not the words. And I also feel that everything. He said what he didn't say. It was one of the most important things he said. We didn't listen to NFL players. He didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name Colin. Cabinet this literally cost him his career to fight against social injustice, and I personally feel that he deserves to be mentioned because he. He said we didn't listen to. NFL players with the NFL players are still NFL. Players and it cost. Cowan cabinet. His career I think he definitely should have been mentioned by name this video. Don't you agree? Absolutely and the civil uprising with people from all racist from all countries, all sides of the world. Jacoby London The Netherlands Africa, this movement has created such a groundswell that forces the NFL to acknowledge that they were wrong yet. Still Kit acknowledged Colin Kaepernick by name. Couldn't acknowledge him by name that that's the step to admitting you're wrong. Is Acknowledgement still didn't happen in so I'm disappointed by that. Well there's a really interesting twist to this because if you sort of admit that you're wrong that you should have listened nfl players when you condemn them kneeling during the national anthem. What about this season? Adrian Peterson a veteran. Here's what he had to say about potentially kneeling this season, he said the following quote. Just four years ago, you're seeing cabinet taking a knee. And now we're all getting ready to take a knee together going into the season without a doubt. Yes without a doubt without a doubt, he plans on taking a knee. Interesting, he went on to say. We've got to put the effort in as a group collectively. Are they going to try to punish us all? If not playing football is going to help us save lives and change things than that's what it needs to be Jalen. Do you see in nfl where you see a majority of the players taking a knee from the anthem? I do and it's going to happen. And this power and platform actually existed for NFL NBA. Entertainers of US for years ago. The difference is when you look back a history. A lot of us are going to be on the wrong side of it. They can column probably shouldn't take is protest to work. That's the biggest stage. That's what people are paying attention, so if I'M GONNA kneel rather do it. It on Sunday at work. They don't Tuesday or my day off. Especially peacefully now the players have been emboldened so the swell of people that did it before. See the groundswell of corporate. America happened to recognize our voices legitimately, and so now is GonNa? Give other black athletes, and why athletes in the NFL the freedom to actually feel if they wanted to kneel MP's that they can actually do so. One of the most powerful athlete voices that we have ever seen in history joins us right after this Kareem abdul-jabbar join Justin just. Treat me. Accusations! We'll be right back.

What exactly did you mean by that? You have to just think back about how life in America has affected you as a black person? And for me, it's It's had its ups and downs, but it all started for me back in one thousand, nine hundred. Eight years old one. Emmett till. was murdered and I didn't understand that and. From that point on I tried to figure out what I can do about it so. I, think my life who's reflected them? Indefinitely.
Goodell condemns racism, admits NFL wrong for not listening
"Responding to the unrest in the protests after the death in police custody of George Floyd NFL commissioner Roger Goodell issued a video statement Friday apologizing to players for not listening to them about racism here's ABC's Steve osunsami Roger Goodell says that without black players there would be no NFL and says the player protests have been mishandled by the league read the National Football League believe black lives matter I personally protest with you I want to be part of the much needed change he is responding to this video posted online by some of the NFL's most successful athletes like Patrick Mahomes with Kansas city and Odell Beckham junior with Cleveland urging the league to support them in their effort one of us to be worried about police brutality but the commissioner can only do so much to influence owners and the players noticed that the words Colin Capra Nick never passed his lips the quarterback who started the protest it hasn't worked in the NFL sense could also said nothing about his thoughts on players kneeling this season during the national anthem New Orleans quarterback drew Brees has said plenty on the subject I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America he spoke for many but has since apologized his own teammates were publicly upset I wish I would have laid out what was on my heart in regards to the chores for mother some model three the years and years of social injustice police brutality the first so much reform change I'm sorry and I will do better and I will be part of the solution and I am your ally in Denver NFL coaches and executives with the Denver Broncos took the stand with their players joining them in a March and protest players Kareem Jackson Todd Davis helped make the event happen so very strongly about what was going on in our country also is important for us to get out there together on the show that no matter what race ethnicity you come from you know the shop this locker room what you're you know wanting to kind of talk about things because another thing for us actually no get out and put some put a plan into action and that's what we wanted to do we want to make a and not an impact in our community currently the NFL has no rule preventing players from kneeling during the national anthem okay that's the most of zombie for maybe see yesterday president trump called Goodell's statement interesting and asked if it could be even remotely possible and quote the commissioner was signaling it would now be okay for players to kneel during the national anthem a move trump says disrespects the country and the flag
New charges in George Floyd's death as protests sweep nation
"Minnesota's attorney, general announced new charges today in the death of George Floyd tonight I spoke to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. He says his office will prepare. Organize and put on the best case possible, but quote at the end of the day. It's really in the hands of the. The jury joining me now is NBA Legend Kareem? Abdul Jabbar so much for being with us as I said, you wrote a piece in the La Times a couple of days ago that he just thought was was really done and I just wanted to talk to you about it. I of although I'd like to get your thoughts on the news that the other three officers involved in Mr Floyd's death his murder had been charged, and that officer a former officer Chauve in. His charges have been upgraded to second degree murder. Is that a step toward justice in your mind? I think it's certainly a step toward justice, and I think that Just the fact that the governor and the mayor really acted quickly and decisively and set a tone for how we should react to this horrible incident. It's so interesting to me how? Different people in this country seat react differently to nunnelee. What are you know what they saw in the video of the killing of Mr Floor? But also what they see in the videos we're showing right now. Protests on people protesting on the streets. You wrote in the La Times and it's a bit of a long paragraph, but I just think it's a really important one that I want to read read. It's you wrote. Yes, protests, oftener uses excuse for some to take advantage just as when fans celebrating the Hometown Sports Team Championship. Burn cars and. And destroy storefronts. I don't WanNa. See stores, looted, or even buildings burn, but African Americans have been living in a burning building for many years. Choking on the smoke is the flames burn closer and closer racism in America's like dust in the air seems invisible. Even if you're choking on it until you let the sun in, then you see, it's everywhere as long as we keep shining light, we have a chance to cleaning it wherever it lands, but we have to stay vigilant because it's always still in the air. Can you talk about how? Different people see different protests, and and why you wrote that paragraph. Well I wrote that paragraph because I I tried to. Set up an analogy that that people could understand you know I. There's another way of describing it. It's like you know. The United States is this wonderful bus. With great seats in the front of the bus, but as you go further to the back of the bus, two seats get worse and the fumes from the exhaust leaking and. Really Record People's Health and Their lives. But the people at the front of the bus. They have no complaints. I it's. It's kind of like that When I describe the the dust in the air and then just accumulates in the lives of black Americans and I. It just eliminates all of the mechanics of democracy. Democracy doesn't work for us we are last fired her. Last hired first fired We have a different. Set of expectations from the criminal justice system. So many ways of of American life discriminating against Black Americans. And finally I think we. We've come to a moment of clarity here where. It can result in such a horrible incident that we saw with with Mr Floyd's death. President Obama spoke today about Y- and I I'm paraphrasing because his words are former eloquent than than my memory of them but. Essentially channeling the energy that we are seeing this extraordinary outpouring and sustained outpouring to real. Systematic change and I'm wondering how you think that is possible, I mean. Do you think it's possible you know? Marching in the streets is extraordinarily powerful. Where does it lead to? That makes real change. I think as possible, Anderson. If it leads to forming a political will within our country to do something, something has to be done. It's It's not enough to say that was terrible. And my thoughts and prayers are with you that that that's not getting anything done we have to. We have to change the circumstances. It's been almost thirty years since Rodney, King Incident D. did you see that as a routine traffic stop? If any white American had. An a relative, get drunk and get stopped by the police in relative beaten. Those people would be up in arms. But Yet Thirty s pass. Nothing has changed. There's been a lot more other dead black Americans and guide really for no good reasons misdemeanors. Eric Garner died because he was selling. Cigarettes illegally You know these are triple things to take someone's life over and we have to. We have to get to the point where we have to do something about that and I think. This will cause the political will maybe to to to grow, and maybe we can get something done. I mean. Yeah, you talk about or Garner Mr? Floyd was accused, not convicted for anything accused. Passing Counterfeit Twenty Dollar Bill and and the man is dead. When you. What was that about the passing a bad bill? You get killed for that? That's horrific.
Who Will Be the Broncos Defensive MVP in 2020?
"Said we do have a poll question up right now at KOAA Colorado on Twitter who will be the Broncos defensive MVP in twenty twenty von Miller drill Casey Bradley Chubb Justin Simmons right now von Miller winning this poll Bradley Chubb is you're right there so pretty close I voted for Bradley Chubb by the way okay I voted for Justin Simmons the only because he sees the field the entire the entire season and I I really think you even thinking badly troubled well they they see the field was a ninety percent just the same as a hundred percent I mean pretty much yeah so I mean we're we're splitting hairs I I actually think there's argument for all all four of them I think there is I think you'd even throw in like I said Kareem Jackson I think we can have a argue about Todd Davis will likely leave we can at least leave the team in tackles there's there's there'll still be harassed kit comes away with with big plays batted passes I mean there's there's probably argument for anyone of these guys yeah other then then yeah I I could totally understand that just and you know he's good for the show and you know I enjoyed enjoyed talking to him from time to time but I'm not you know I I look at and and you know we're all big fans Justin Simmons B. last year before all this went down I was like he's going to become a household name by the end of season sort of maybe all pretty but you know I look at these guys and I'm just for my own personal thing and they have a bounce back season knowing how Bradley Chubb is is kind of Courtland Sutton on the defense enters the attitude work ethic all that kind of stuff and he was where it was interesting get to talk to both those guys a buffalo wild wings last year because it felt like it was kind of a new unified narrative between the two you know Courtland brother has sent a lot of the same things very similarly it's interesting because they're off the side of the ball so it's it's it would it was kind of fascinating to you know to see two guys have the same approach would be different sides of the ball that aren't necessarily in the same same meetings and
'The Last Dance:' Debate over Michael Jordan's trash talking on 1997-98 Chicago Bulls
"More discussion this morning. Of course about the last dance the legacy of Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teams of the nineteen nineties and whether or not the way Jordan governed that group demanded of them held them accountable. Some might say bullied them was fair. Michael Wilbon who covered Jordan Bulls and knows Jordan about as well as anyone in the media. This side of a moderate shod. Join Max Steven A. And discussed the question was Michael Jordan. Too tough on his teammates. What were your thoughts when you heard. What Charles Barkley had to say about Michael Jordan In regards to his treatment of his teammates. Well look everybody's gotTa take on. Michael and how? Ruffy was teammates. Select Selective Prosecution. Was the words he used select. Prosecution said look everybody had a different leadership style. Reason part of the reason for this documentary reasoning exists is because Michael decided okay. I'm going to be able to sort of control the conversation in terms of why I did what I did and how I did it. I it comes out and says hey you know you've had this conversation with them. He wasn't trying to adopt anybody else's leadership style. He was going to do this his way. And when it worked then you had to. You heard him during. I thought the most effective part of the last dance department made me reach for a notebook and put my reporter hat back on his when Michael Said you know. Winning has a price. And if you don't want to buy into the mentality. I am using here. Get out it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be hell for you. I think was the phrase. And so you see all those teams that you see will produc- Winnington and those guys say at the time that we did it. Seem like he crossed the line. Yes as went on. Did we think he was a great teammate? Yes this is not look you can have whatever take you. WanNa have on it and I understand Charleston's take because it was different but nobody else in their time as much I mean magic and Kareem on the way in but it worked and so I even sit. There does interesting mom watching in real time I have not. I did not watch all the episodes of advanced like most people in our business. I wanted to watch in real time with my son. Who's a twelve year old basketball player and his eyes so big? When Michael says certain things to his teammates we are watching the unedited version The watch the PG rated version of the DEUCE and he's like. Wow Dad he has to do that with his teammates. And I'm like I don't know if he had to but it worked they won and that's the bottom line right. There is the quote that tells you at all they won in Jordan's way worked. Max made a great point during the you know there was no Celtics Lakers rivalry. There wasn't because Jordan he was Roy Jones. He was so good. There were no equals. No rivals
Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?
"Kirk. So I I swear. I promise we're not here to debate. Mj versus Lebron. At least not until the end of the interview believe me I have my stance. It is locked and loaded. We'll get to that. I don't want to alienate half the audience before we begin so over the last few weeks. Those of us who have watched the last dance have borne witness to the greatness. That is Michael. Jordan and that greatness does inform the Lebron debate insofar as it has reminded us of how dominant Jordan was but of course he was playing a different era. Basketball was very different from how it is today which can make it hard to compare those two players or to evaluate how Jordan would fare in today's NBA. So let's start here and established that point of comparison. What was the league like Jordan came into it? Well Jordan came into the in nineteen eighty four and it was a very very different place. The best players in the League at that time or Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson Larry Bird bird again. Larry saying the crowd here. This is what came to see. Kareem abdul-jabbar was still really good Long story short meaning the the NBA was run by big men just as it had been since its entire district and eight of the ten highest play players by the time Jordan even retired centers Jordan was drafted in Nineteen eighty-four just to give you an idea dominant. How valuable centers were sixteen of the twenty previous? Mvp Award winners heading into the one thousand nine hundred four eighty five season worst centers so Jordan entered an MBA. That's fair to characterize as a centers -ly And obviously it's very very different than what we're describing here in twenty twenty. So how big of a deal was it? That the best player in the League Michael Jordan was a shooting dude. You can't overstate. How big of a deal. It was really weird. I mean magic had showed us that point guards could be great. Bird showed us the power forwards and shooting. Forwards could be great no. Mvp had ever come from the shooting. Guard position nobody had really ever dominated the leak or won championships from that position or in that way and again one of the main things the makes Michael Jordan's such a special character in NBA. History is that he deformed the various static of MBA greatness. disrupted to use the term from from Silicon Valley. What it meant and what it looked like to be. Nba superstar love deformed as a verb because it sort of implies that he bent the League to his own. Will he did that man? I mean he came in there and it was violent and it was beautiful and it was for the betterment of the future of the sport a couple of weeks ago. You're at a piece about why. Michael Jordan was such a transcendent score. Can you explain what it was that? Made that dominant so unusual. Yeah well it starts with the fact that he's a he's a guard and again to contextualize it against what was going on in the eighties. Nineties is is shooting guards in wings didn't dominate the NBA. We had the occasional superstar like Julius Irving. So I'm not GonNa say that he was the first star wing but he was a jump shooter. Long Story Short. He was a jump shooting guard. Who could attack the Rim and boy could he attack the rim? So the early part of Jordan's careers. Obviously marked by these highlight jump. Man Silhouettes the dump contest leap from the free throw line and Chicago. Stadium can picture that in our head along Dominique to Michael Jordan but by the end Meena Jordan would beat teams with just incredible mid range shooting And if a majority of buckets in the last dance season in that second repeat came off of the mid range jump shots that either came from post plays Dribble pull-ups quick stops just an endless array of mid range jumpers. Mj On the way away. Jumper and one scout told me a really stuck out is like I've been watching the last dance for eight hours now. I haven't seen the same move twice. It's not like he had to go to move over and over again. All those phase pretty close but man he he did it all but he did it in this area that we don't use very much anymore. Aka Amid Ridge and he's also very difficult shots right thinking about it this way. If you're going up against the Bulls in his nineteen ninety two or nineteen ninety-seven and year in opposing coach. Year number one objective is pretty clear If you can stop or slowdown Michael Jordan. You have a chance. If can't you don't So almost every night the Jordan played he would get the other teams best defender. And that person would WANNA play their best game of the year because everybody in their Rena was watching it and so he did. This eighty two games a year to put up the best sort of scoring numbers in the League against the best defensive performers in the league so you made a heat map for Jordan and then in the same story you made one for harden and you put them next to each other and trying to comparison it almost looks like urban and rural America right or like to to heat maps. That are just wildly different. Almost like people playing different sports one hundred percent in hardened deserves all the credit in the world for becoming the best score of this era but this era is dominated by sort of this moneyball dogma efficiency efficiency efficiency and when you look at James Harden shot signature. You see a guy who shoots near the hoop. He's great Basket attacking guard like Jordan But then away from the painting of the student only shoots threes. He avoids the Mid Range just like he avoids a shaving cream. And and then when you look at say Jordan you see almost the exact opposite remember that old image of Pan Jia and how the continent sort of fit together these two shots hearts kind of look like South America and Africa. Where Jordan is one shape all mid range and then a hardest jump shot activity is sort of surrounding that all three point airs. Jordan didn't shoot a lot of threes.

Cb tell us about what is absolutely so this'll be actually started with with conversation Two years ago I I had a dinner with a good friend of mine. Who is actually an expert in hardware design worked on like no chips for a well known phones etc and we were speaking about like. What is he doing this particular sector? And he was like not that much like particular like busy stunt for printed circuit boards so basically those ships that you will find with all sorts of Consumer Electronics Products Iphones Speakers Bluetooth etc and You know the situation in that market was that auto routers basically automated systems to connect the different components like built. Basically the electrical secretary have been going on for many years but they were not that make and we were like. Hey that sounds like an interesting problem to to look at. We started looking into it eventually. This good front now. Be True was now meeting or hardware team joint steady and we've worked very hard on this project and we're very proud to have been able to achieve goals and in November last year we've released it in. Beta form and it is a world first for the first time we have a system that is end to end fully deployable and scalable on the cloud capable of understanding how to route chips essential and now last time we spoke we. Our conversation was focused on the work. Your company was doing applying reinforcement learning to logistics is deep be also based on reinforcement learning absolutely and this is a very strong commonality and like design philosophy between or or products. So in a sense. Let me give you an example. We've we've continued to do great work in logistics and the recently last September. We've won a major contract for example with that. Chaban the German railway company and to give idea this is about routing trains on a large scale talking about ten thousand trains a day and some think on some thirty three thousand kilometers of railway but downs out their communities between routing trains and routing chips on a board and so we realized that the projects and the type of research that study is doing is actually applicable to multiple fields. And when it comes to imbed Ziegler printed circuit boards. They're putting compelling so. We went full speed ahead and this turned out to be office product. Alrighty so when you initially met with your friend your mention that they're you know while this these auto routers have been in place or have been in use for many years. They were not without their challenges and problems. What were some of those challenges and problems? And what was the opportunity to introduce? A I think Reuters have been the they've been. There's been a lot of great work. Donald Reuters but in terms of like design philosophy. The design philosophy is all about essentially using ristic's to solve problems and we spoke a little bit about this in Bester conversation so it's very similar to let's say what was the status of software for chess before out. Fazio came out the systems which were very well actually but still are built on your way. Sticks fought for the hardest problems. Ristic's have limits and a system that can essentially mobilize learning can. Learning get scale can get better results when it comes in particular for in the status of printed circuit. Boards it is actually incredible and we are in twenty twenty that actually complex sucrets still designed manually and the reason why people design those Mandy is because auto routers essentially a failed to deliver the goods to the degree of quality which is expected by high quality customers so we see a really compelling opportunity with modern built on the latest innovation. Some of it actually developed in house we actually have patents on the work done for the. There is an opportunity to accelerate the design cycle of products. Because it's not just about quality you mean. Engineers do absolutely amazing work and have amazing intuition. It's about the speed. Human engineer could take in certain cases multiple weeks if not months to completely root complex with more than we do believe instead that this timing can be proud to twenty four hours this if done at scale it would be tremendous for the industry and it would accelerate the product cycle. We are using consumer electronics to have a cycle every six months of the year. There's a new version coming. We believe that any I could actually accelerate A. That's that's a that psycho and as a consequence also make it easier to design new products and experiment and ultimately unleash more human creativity and mobilizing gay. You mentioned complexity of the boards as being one of the challenges. What are we talking about when we talk about complexity? We I'm assuming we're measuring that in for example number of components but having worked with circuit boards before there are also issues like the number of layers and things like that when you talk about a complex board. What exactly are you talking about? So about really consists in basically an. Kyi's that we need to connect and as a consequence like those guys they can be what needs to be connected so you have fairs of components essential get need to be connected and they could be thousands of those and as you mentioned rightly there could be multiple layers simple designs start with two or four layers that you could have a lot more and the more you have layers the more components you have to connect the heart of the problem. It is an empty heart problem and so this is where I can help. But you can you when you're looking at the most difficult designs that we take human engineers significant amount of time to solve
"kareem" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Three years at at Ucla Kareem abdul-jabbar. In my opinion the most disrespected basketball player. Maybe athlete of all time. He's got an argument to be the greatest NBA history. He certainly the greatest player in college basketball history myself. Get US rolling here. Why is Kareem abdul-jabbar so disrespected man? No-one Kareem abdul-jabbar have the last decade. It's me I will say this. He has this cocktail of being a genius being aloof. And I had to go into that before I give you the Cherry on top. Which really makes them most disrespected athlete. All the time his genius is such that when you talk to them you realize all a bit stepping up. I better go deep into these pages of whatever I'm discussing because Corinne is an intelligent young man. Now let's talk about who. We is in terms of being aloof. He doesn't really care if you don't care about what he's thinking or you don't care to agree with him so that's really important to know that someone says something and they're not trying to move you as much as just tried to enlighten you. But the Cherry on top is that he did all of his greatest work the peak of his powers as a teammate of the most likeable player ever Magic Johnson. And I think that's where it really went wrong for Corinne because he didn't invest his time energy trying to recover any relationships that he may have lost throughout the process of being on the meanwhile magic was doing nothing but trying to get these relationships going and foster in great goodwill in the community and with others so is this that combination man unfortunate but his genius and his distance on top of being with the most likeable player ever really makes people kind of from Karimun his greatness. The number one thing for me is there's a certain amount of recency biased but that you can't trust anything when it comes to the Internet and people who are voting on on ESPN. It's one outlet so to suggest that that is a reflection true reflection of where anybody stands. Historically I think is a is a is an error. Bersell makes a lot of great points. I I hand know what a prickly personality Kareem was. When he was playing and look pictures are more powerful than words and video is more powerful than pictures and we essentially. You're not seeing a whole lot of video of of Kareem abdul-jabbar certainly at the height of his powers when he was playing at UCLA. And so the Michael Jordan. Not only that you see in college but being colored by what he did as a pro all of that is going to influence the voting here but we really look at it wholeheartedly. At who was the better who had the better college career who was the better college player. It's not even close but I think that this is a reflection of the voting the voting process in who is voting as opposed to even the personality of Kareem. I think that was a factor. He played at a time where he was a bit of a Social Justice Warrior. That was a brand new thing and it has his his message. Had to be carried by what was predominantly white male reporters. Let's face it. He didn't get along with them. He didn't look to cultivate those relationships. Those would be the guys that would be speaking for him now and I dare say you don't have a whole lot of them doing that. Yeah I I think we would be remiss. If we also didn't mention his name was lew alcindor change into Kareem abdul-jabbar. There is a biased. I believe against Muslim people here in America. I don't think there was a lot of comfort particularly at that time with him being a Muslim and so I think some of that plays a wrong. But most of this I because again the prickly personality Bill Russell's got a prickly Michael Jordan's got a bit of a pregnant personality and is a bit aloof and those things and trust me Bill Russell Bill Walton Kareem abdul-jabbar Magic. Larry Bird to me. Those guys all had more historic Hollis careers where. I really blame the media. Though is the way we leave. Karim out of the greatest. Nba Player discussion. And there's a lot of us fifty and older who know damn well Kareem abdul-jabbar has might there some of us? They BELIEVE IN I. I honestly do believe this. The Kareem is right there with Michael Jordan six time NBA MVP. We sit around and talk about who the best closer was in basketball in closed this guy and Kareem abdul-jabbar and the reliability of that it was tossed the ball into the seven footer. He dropped Skyhook on you or he kicks it out to someone else because he could make the right past or he would go to the free. Throw line after getting He shot over seventy percent from the free throw line. Kareem abdul-jabbar is the greatest closer in basketball history. And so I don't think we give cream his proper respect as NBA Player. The all time leading scorer somehow with all the championships the MVP somehow can't get in that conversation and that's on us. Yeah I think it said he played with magic and magic gets the lion's share of credit. Or what those teams did. And we didn't see him in Milwaukee Right. It wasn't until he got to the Lakers that we really paid attention to him and again. I will say that that personality next to magic one of the most beloved and gracious when it came to the media when they were playing like it or not. Those were factors. Yeah man you know the and it's not just limited to the Internet I'm glad we're highlighting net. It's media people. It's people who are periods of the sport still look at career with disrespect and look at them in a proper lives. And just an example of this Columbia my Alma Mater was in the hunt for new head coach and Kareem abdul-jabbar. Who from New York City could not even land that Gig because of this perception or misperception of how he relates to others especially the young kids? Eighteen to twenty two year old. Who would've never seen to replay obviously and as we've stated has seen enough highlights of Korean to even give him the reverence necessary so it Kareem K. Get the Columbia job as a basketball coach. You know this stuff is not being looked at properly. It's his greatness. Thanks.

"I said I wasn't gonna say that name, pardon me. Pardon me. I said I was gonna say that name, but just a magin that backfield. Just imagine a verse Timoti in the skill set of each all of the guys have good hands all of the guys can run pretty well between the numbers and Kareem hunt is twenty three years of age cream hunt is now a free agent. So all you have to do is pick up his rookie contract, which is minimal. I mean, you have the issue that he's on Commissioner's exempt list. But you don't need Kareem hunt in the immediate. You don't meet Kareem game one. Let's say you get Kareem hunt game seven gang eight. That's when you needing you need even the stretch run when it's getting cold, and you can start pounding football teams of magic and Kareem hunt to the mix with Connor. And let's say the Steelers continue to execute like they did in the red zone this year that combination is like pas case it back in the day in a famous. Hip. Hop song in the eighties a good combination the milk and the geeze a good combination. Bit been Kareem. A good combination. Now, he apt IX of not gonna lie of Kareem in been raffles burger with their issues in the backfield would be rather curious, and I don't wanna make light of either situation big been situation or Korean situation. Kareem hunt situation. It would be an issue. But you don't think that the Steelers could deal with the blowback your think Steeler fan would just say here. Who I don't know? But yeah, we want to win a seven Super Bowl in so fortunate that it comes down to that it comes in. It's unfortunate that it comes down to you're going to look the other way because of guys character possibly to to win another championship. But the reality of it is if national football easy to go is to try to win games. Now. There's an issue that he's being investigated for a couple of other things in there could be a third thing. But look it's worth the risk. Even if he doesn't play for you. You just wave the guy again. Or or maybe you wait it out. Maybe wait it out entirely. So this guy when this guy comes back, but either way what you can't argue is if you add Kareem hut to mix the Steelers are much better football team. You know, maybe this is the type of play that the Steelers need to make to jog them out of this fog in this missed that they're in that they have to do things a certain particular way. Look man, this is it's Berg the goal is winning championships. And the last time I checked. There's a two headed monster up north. Debts on the Steelers booties on their fannies on their ills in if the Steelers want to be the first team to win a seven championship. They need to go out and make big moves. It make splash moves in one of that would be or one of them would be signing. Corinne hot. So yeah, I said the Steelers should go out and get Kareem who's one of the best young backs in the National Football League. Twenty three years of age has some baggage absorb the baggage bring in one of the best running back to the National Football League. Couple him with your Pro Bowl. Ryan back in James, Connor. Aka John Carter. The Terminator had the best young backfield in the National Football League because with ABM his shenanigans. Who knows how that's gonna work out? So you need to fortify your backfield. And I would love having the two best two of the best running backs in the AFC which would make Steelers have the best tandem of running backs in AFC argument actual football league. So once again, yeah, I said it the Steelers should Cy Kareem hunt with that we're going to tune out and get out of here against support all the programs support the standard is the standard the flagship show behind the curtain support. Jeff does a fantastic job on the burning question. Support the website support all the podcasters big up to all of you for making this R s have our biggest month in January..
"kareem" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Well, the the most remarkable thing to me on the whole thing was you just don't see it. When the player comes out and says, I was wrong in the organization was right to do what they did. Now, whether that's just a PR move on his part. I don't know. But it was it was almost unprecedented that you hear something like that. And I think the guy will be back in the game. I think it'll be by next year, depending on how long the Commissioner suspense him or whatever. And I think a big reason will be that people are pretty forgiving when you when you come forward and say that the other thing that struck me is clearly from what they said one of the things that really upset the chiefs is when they first went to him about it. He lied about it, and it amazes me in. I don't care if it's sports politics or anything else. The lie is worse than the. Yeah. The lies always worse. It always gets people in trouble and people still don't learn that lesson and still think they're going to be able to lie and get away with it. I mean, it it's incredible. I'm curious what you make as a man who has learned from his daughter about women's rights. What you make of what the NFL is trying to do which is the unwinnable position of being a moral authority on domestic abuse that supersedes even the government's law enforcement arm like you, you do what with the idea that the NFL very badly. Wants you to believe that it is a pioneer on domestic abuse as these things keep happening at simply PR on their part. And I get it. I guess, but but look at to me, I would rather have it handled by criminal Justice. Authorities people who are qualified become in and doing investigation on what went on. And then go through the system, and you know, Levy what other whatever punishment is is due and get the league out of out of this. Because it's hard for the league's because they're only concern is public relations. I mean, I I'm not going to buy that Roger Goodell. Really cares. A great deal about you know, what is players are doing off the field or anything else. And so let's get it back where it should be into the into the criminal Justice realm, and whatever happens to Kareem hunt happens, and then we'll move on from there. I mean, you know, whenever he's eligible to play again to me he should be able to to play. And at this point. You know, I mean, obviously, there's video and everything else. But the guy has not been convicted of anything I there's a little bit of a rush to judgment. Would you be brave enough to claim him off waivers stem? I mean, I again, I don't know the entire situation. But I the biggest thing to me. Yeah. I would the biggest thing to me would be the, you know, what really happened, which I'm not I don't know the whole thing. What's his history in what's the league gonna you know, what's the league gonna do because you're not going to claim a guy off waivers who can't play? No. But he'll be able to play. Eventually you've got the rights to achieve contract. That's valuable San you're looking at this this when you're looking at his business cutthroat mercenary stuff, but nobody claimed them and it made me wonder yesterday, whether the league told people, hey, do not claim him because Washington got in trouble for public relations trouble for trying to defend the claiming of Ruben. They're also investigating another assault now with woman, but with man and nightclub. There's there's other incidents around. That's what I'm saying. We don't know the entire situation and as far as accusations and stuff like. It's really funny. I mean to me when it just at the level of of accusations that who we don't have a problem putting a couple of people on the supreme court that were accused, but God you should not be able to play in the NFL..

"And I I like that message as a fan, and it doesn't matter who you are. And that's that's the beauty of it. Because this is the rushing champion. This isn't your third running neck does this Damian Williams. Frank zomba. This is the rushing champion from last year. I understand it's not Todd Gurley. But it might as well be you know for the chiefs. Yeah. I mean, no, this certainly sets a precedent that will certainly send shockwaves throughout the rest of the team. If we can't let's talk about the football aspect because there certainly is a football aspect in this, obviously you're losing one of your best offensive players vied to give a ranking of the guys on the offense. And maybe the easiest one to overcome. I probably will put Sammy Watkins number one just because you have tyreek. And because you have Travis Kelsey, and you have Chris Conley. Damarcus Robinson Kareem hunt would probably be second just because of Spencer ware and the position Spence aware. I think is a capable number two. Now, I don't know if he can be your number one. I think we saw what happened. He's the number one. But spencer. Away or with this passing attack? And then you sprinkle in a little Damien Williams. Maybe you pick somebody up off the scrap heap. I don't think this damages the chiefs the way maybe maybe it would appear on the surface of losing a player as talented as Karima. I think this is something you can manage is given how dangerous or passing attack is it's hard to say that about this situation this podcast. And I want to say you understand the gravity of what happened today now that being said and you turn to page the football. What's funny is last month? I watched Spencer where you know. I forget what game was might have been against the Bengals. But I tweet it out. I said, you know, what this guy can start somewhere. He can't be on the chiefs next year because he can start. I think you have a starting running back behind Kareem hunt. So that's fortunate in it, and you mentioned Damian Williams, I think that's maybe your third down back in passing situations where he comes in. And he's a threat at through the air as well. I think you see both of them. I think he spent where more, but Damian Williams will definitely be in that mix. I believe it was the game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Because I remember thinking if you're going to let Spencer ware get screenplays on third and twenty no chance of winning this game. Yeah. You have no chance of winning this game. He's good. I got confidence and Spencer where like maybe that's certainly part of the situation. So we talk about like, maybe the gravity of the decision of if we gotta make this move at Kareem hunt. We feel really confident that we have a backup that can stop right in certainly the understanding the importance of what happened. But this is a position that you at least have a capable backup. Like the next man up mentality. You're going to lose something. I haven't Kareem hunter's lying that. But Spencer ware is probably what eighty percent of what cream aunt was eighty five percent of what Kareem Karimojos when you couple that with the passing attack. You're certainly capable offensively still. Yeah. I like I said, I've just really liked Spencer where in the way he's rebounded from the injury. I mean, he missed an entire year and came back and in his limited opportunities. This year has looked like a starting back. And now, you know, he he he does the right thing off the field. He's a guy that you can rely upon and you re insert him into this lineup. And I'm excited to see what he can do. This is not the end of the season..

"It's Friday night, you hanging out at the radio station. No, no place. I'd rather be right. I didn't wanna tell you guys a little bit behind the curtains. It is nine fifty two PM on Friday. I came up here. Peak came up here. We've been talking about this for the last thirty minutes. He wanted to give you guys this content. It's going to be on my YouTube page. Thanks, you so much for checking it out like in subscribe. It's going to be on Arrowhead pride. Yeah. You you're also probably listening on the Arab pride podcast channel, which is on Spotify tunes things like that. So let's just start with this Clark. Aunt today. Released a statement. I'm sure, you know, at this point if you clicked on this video on this podcast the chiefs announced Friday in a statement that they released star running back Kareem hunt. Here's a full statement from chiefs owner Clark hunt, quote earlier this year, we were made aware of an incident involving running back Kareem on. At that time the National Football League in law enforcement initiated investigations into the issue. As part of our internal discussions with Kareem. Several members of our management team spoke directly to him. Corinne was not truthful in those in those discussions the video released today confirms that fact we are releasing Kareem immediately. Let's start with this. I'm surprised that he is released. We were talking about this on the show earlier today. I thought this was at a minimum four-game suspension. Maybe something like the Ezekiel Elliott scenario. We saw last year plaid south Al for the Dallas Cowboys. I didn't even really allow myself to think that Kareem hunt was going to be released in this scenario. If this was a lesser player. I think he gets released in February whenever this happens. Like, you're not good enough to do this off the field. But the fact of it's one of the three best running backs in the NFL five running backs in the NFL. If we want to be really generous without good Kareem. Aunt was I didn't think there was any way that the went to release them based on the video that we saw chiefs did it in eight hours. Yeah. And it was a surprising move and. I was just a surprise as you mentioned. I think that more talented. You are the bigger leash. You have which makes this so surprising Kareem hunt is a rare talent a rare, rare rare talent. So you look at this. And and you look at an incident and you've seen incidents across the league. So your your your gut is telling you, okay, there's no way he gets released. I said to myself at the beginning of the day when this all started to develop in the afternoon when TMZ sports released a video I thought it was possible he got released. But I thought that was a far fetched final decision that she could make. I gotta think there's more out there to the story. I kind of think there is a digital information for Kareem or there's more to the video or there's something more damning and the chiefs kind of wanted to get out there front of it because they're at least is a precedent set four four game suspension six game suspension. Now, maybe the chiefs now have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to abusive situations and assault concerning women. Hey, I'm four kudos when it comes to that. But we can agree. It would have been easy. Maybe that's not the right word to use. It would have been easy for the NFL to say there's a policy in place for violence against women. We're going to sit cream on down for the next for the next six games. They even could've sat him down for the rest of the season. And he just wouldn't came back at the beginning of two thousand nineteen and would have had to be quote reinstated. By the team February of twenty nineteen for them for there to be an outright released to this either. You have a zero tolerance policy for it. Now, or to me, there's something deeper going on and you wanted to now get out in front of it..
