"Of the next fresh air political strategist, Stuart Stevens. He spent decades helping elect Republicans. Now he's working to defeat President Trump in his new book, It was all a lie. He condemns party leaders for what he says is their cowardly support of a man they know is unfit to lead the country. Join us Join us for fresh air tonight at seven o'clock. Here on members supported the FM 88.5 San Francisco and Kiwi I FM 89.3 north Highland Sacramento were streaming online at dot This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro. There will be no college football in the Big 10 or the Pac 12 this fall. The athletic conferences both made their announcements this afternoon, citing the covert 19 pandemic. Conference officials say they are hoping sports start up again in the spring. Kavita Davidson is following this for the Atlantic and she joins us on Skype. I there Hi. Thank you. I'm at the athletic, by the way, just does that tell you I'm so sorry. I misspoke. There. Tell us more about what happened today. What did the Big 10 and Pac 12 decide? So it wasn't that surprising given the developments that we saw over the weekend, but it's still a stunning so the Big 10 announced this morning early afternoon that It would be postponing fall football until at least the spring. Now. The Pac 12 followed suit after after a meeting among its president's not only announcing that it would be postponing fall Footballer all fall sports. It would be postponing all sports through the end of the calendar year, and that includes basketball. Now the Big 10 Impact 12 or two of the five power conferences. Where did the other three stand? So the big swing vote If you will. Among the three remaining is the is the big 12 there. They've kind of been on the fence throughout this entire debate. The SEC has said all along that its medical advisory committees say that it's safe. It's Tze OK to go forward with football. And that it would be keeping an eye on what the Big 10 in the Pac 12 we're announcing, but that it would make its own decisions. So where everything's kind of up in the air. We're still kind of waiting for the other three dominoes to fall after after today's announcements from the From the 1st 2 conferences, it does seem like a dramatic about face. Just last week, the Big 10 announced that it would play a reduced season, but that's still a season. So this is the biggest question, I think is exactly what changed has been six days since the Big 10 released its fall schedule, and they're really haven't been any great answers to that to that. And even though the question has been asked repeatedly, Ohio State's athletic director was just on Big 10 network today and basically said the science came out of so fast, but the fact of the matter is the science. The science that they're referring Tio when it comes to the long term, heart and lung consequences that can potentially arise from contracting from contracting Cupid that science hasn't actually developed very much in the past six days. So I think that that question is one that these commissioners in these university presidents will still have to answer. Have you heard any reaction yet from players? I mean, just yesterday On this program, we had defensive lineman from Washington State Dallas Hobbs saying he wanted to play. What do you hearing now that the plug has been pulled I mean, these players are like they're they're the biggest victims in this entire college football fight, right? I mean, they have said that they wanted to play. They have been given absolutely no leadership throughout this entire thing on DH. They haven't really been given any assurances that the protocols would be in place or would suffice to place to place safely. If that's even possible. So you know you've seen Ohio State quarterback Justin feels just kind of tweeted shake my head like I don't think anybody really knows what to do with themselves on the questions going forward for these athletes are what happens to my scholarship. What happens to my transfer Eligibility on DH? What happens to my potential future in the NFL and beyond once I'm losing this season. It is Kavita Davidson of the athletic. Thank you for speaking with us. Thank you. Children.

"From Wilmington, Delaware. And our next guest. The Reverend Leah Daughtry is a former chief of staff of the Democratic Party. She was CEO of the Democratic National Convention in 2008 and 2016. And she joins us now to talk about Camilla Harrison. What she will bring to the ticket. Reverend Daughtry welcome. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. What does she bring to the ticket? In your view? Why is Kamala Harris the right pick? Well, you know, she brings obviously the ability to run strong campaign she served in the Senate first time Senator from the state of California. She is understands the criminal justice system, which is so badly in need of reform. Right now, she brings the ability to connect with various communities that the Democratic Party means and she brings vision to to the Joe Biden ticket to really help and support and uplift. The things that Vice President Biden wants to do it. She's going to be an excellent fantastic running mate. And, of course, the thing that I'm most excited about as a black woman is that she brings all of us that her lived experience to this ticket. In a way that is historic that we've never seen before. In this country. Not something to get lost in. This is that this is for the Democrats, the first woman to be to run for vice president and the first African American woman, So it's not the first woman we had Geraldine Ferraro II bigger partner absolutely right, correct, so to follow up on something you said, though, which is which is her ability and what you can do in the campaign in terms of turning out vote, she ran an unsteady presidential campaign. I think it's fair to say last year She was also a rival to Biden Exchange sharp words, How did they manage to sort through that? Well, I think the level not novice. Neither is a novice politician, and we know how campaigns go after all of job I ran against Barack Obama. In 2008 and was and took some hard jabs. But in the end, you know they were able to come together and recognize what each brought to the campaign and the value that Joe Biden would bring The Barack Obama in the value that Senator Harris we're playing to Joe Biden what's while her campaign in the cast of thousands Didn't necessarily break through. What we were able to see is empathy and the way that she connected with people on the road as she was campaigning and end the debate. She's a sharp debate. I can't wait for the pence debate. She's also she knows the issue. She knows the policies and when I said she brings voters, I mean the millions of African American voters that just got really energized. And are ready to go out and work to make Joe Biden, the president in November. We have a minute or so left, and I do want to follow up on something else you mentioned, which is her track record in law enforcement, a track record that has already attracted a lot of many questions. How much scrutiny are you expecting on that front, particularly in this moment when there is so much focus on the question of law enforcement in policing? The I think should get appropriate amount of look, look see, as we also, we know a lot of it already from her presidential campaign, But there's so much more that we don't know. And so I'm looking forward. People really learning more about her. Ah, work to get people's records spun so that men could have a life after law enforcement deal with truancy and a decent and fair way on. I think it's a conversation that this country is ready to have, and I think she's the best person to have it. Is Reverend Leah Daughtry. She's a former chief of staff of the Democratic Party. We appreciate your time and congratulations on what I know is a big is a big day for your party. Thanks very much. Thank you.

Will there one in three in the league but I think okay I think two wins overall and I could be wrong about that okay. I'M GONNA go colgate here to shock the world at home in the Bronx is the center of the College Football Universe obviously with Yankee stadium hosting the new pro bowl and I don't know if you notice I did put a new purple sound in did not see that sound downfalls. It's okay we can. We can play another week or played in the recap There's something there's something about the Bronx I'm GonNa Take Fordham here. I'm GONNA take the the Fordham Rams and by the way if you are going to the Bowl La Mirada for Mexican food. La Morada M. O. R. A. La Mirada really good oaxacan food food OAXACAN. Oaxaca is an area to state Mexico very specific style. If you like Malays like we've talked about. No I do any ingredients sure. Yeah Okay try you does. Oh Man I wish that in an old blue apron spot you had to read off that you could make playas t. l. a. y. you. Da Great Great. Yeah so I'm going in that direction also retie before we stop before we hit. Stop on the show. I'm actually going on the lead. which is a terrific? Show that wondering does it's It's a daily sport shell. They partnered with the athletic interviewing different. Writers is based on the story of the day. So if it's a big. It's a big day for the Lakers. They talk talk to the whoever's covering the Lakers for the athletic if it's a big day for the Denver Broncos for whatever reason they talked to the person covering the Broncos and so I'm going on the show talk about Lsu Alabama so. I figured let's let's get to know the lead a little bit more before we go since they do a terrific job. Doing daily sports arts show Osthoff every morning of the week for your commute. Have listen and now before we go on very excited to take a take a nice look ticket dip into the pool of our friends at another wondrous show and it's Kavita Davidson and alters. I said alters unders Celts L. Because I what I did was I combined your names But they host the lead for both agree and the athletic. And if you have not listened to the lead first of all shame on you. You're we're doing a poor job with your digital audio consumption second of all as you probably know. They do a daily sports show with the athletic in one degree so every morning you wake up you get on your way work and boom. There is an episode of the lead. They're talking about the biggest sports stories and talking to experts at the athletic. Not that they're not smart. But how can you know about everything in every single-sport you might as well lean on the experts. So whether it's the Lakers the broncos or Florida state or maybe the Minnesota Wild. I don't know I don't know and I would like to know so Kavita honors. Thank you for joining me. Thanks so much for having us in. What an intro? Oh Gosh I've been working on that all day so so. I think I did the concept justice and part of the reason that I'm having you on besides that I'm just fans of the show is also I'm appearing on the show to talk about Lsu Alabama so. I figured we'd make this official go both ways Tell me about how the lead works how it operates. WELL IT IS A. It's a heavy left but it's a lot of fun and essentially we just dive into sort of the biggest and the most fascinating sports stories stories of the day and like you mentioned were hitting all sports And all kinds of stories. We tend to do a lot of profiles of really interesting. Athletes Beats or people of note in the world of Sports But we're really just kind of curious about what's happening out there and trying to find surprising thing and compelling stories and then to find the best people in the best sports reporters to help us. Tell them yeah. I think that that's you know if you follow what we do over at the athletic when I came over to the podcast from Being a sports business reporter for the athletic you know we've got so many reporters who have just been covering these teams for years ears. Who are on the ground there and you know if if something happens in New Orleans we've got like four people that we can call on a New Orleans to come on and talk about that and that's that's really cool to us us so it actually does bring up a question how do you? I know you're leaning on the experts but you have to be able to ask smart questions. You have to know context to bring information out out of these experts in various cities. How are you able to download con- like I have to know about dozens if not hunt over one hundred college football teams and that's already a heavy heavy left? How do you jump across sports to the to fully understand contacts to bring good information out of your interviewees? We'll all answer that because the the answer is often Kavita an encyclopedia of sports information and we lean on her quite a bit. But you know it's also very much a team effort we've got A team of producers who are amazing researchers who create prep sheets and outlines for us and prep us for interviews and talk through story ideas with us and you you know. Research is is a big part of what we do yet. I'm just GONNA jump in and say and I appreciate that unders. Thank you You know like I've covered sports for six zero now and I'm a generalist right like I. I've covered all sports so I have a pretty good baseline knowledge of you know anything that we could talk about. Ah Without going as deep as these experts go you know. That's that kind of sets the foundation for you know when we do these deep dives and that also kind of helps for us that that you know we do. Have this incredible staff of of people who not all of them are sports fans so they can kind of filter out. You know the stuff when I get way too much into my head and I'm like wait. You remember when this happened in nineteen eighty seven. Nobody else remembers that. I don't either because I wasn't born and I would also just add real quickly that you know we we're both we both love. Sports were very curious about sports but we try to get out of the way of the story as much as possible like the. The show isn't about us. It's about the storytellers that we bring on and it's about the stories themselves so we're not there to try and impress anyone or like validate ourselves with how much we know about sports. We're just there to try and help. Tell these really powerful stories We have completely different ideologies than because I love no one myself and taking some credit. I know maybe we do our little more of my Beta. My final question is and I know that this is probably more appropriate to you. I think you're a bigger college football fan but do you have strong. LSU Alabama the thoughts now going into the game. Is there a part of the narrative. The Story Line of the game that you're particularly interested you have a pick. Do you have a hot take out. How are you landing with this? It's no match up of the century Well first of all. I think that we've bandied about the idea of the game of the century and how many times we have had the game of the century in the last Tenth of a century It's it's the best I'm excited to see. First of all is to a playing. Do we have do. We have that confirmation his supposed to play play he is going. He had a little procedure. Done the tight rope procedure on his ankle and supposedly will play. What percentage of fully healthy to he'll be nobody knows which by the way if you guys watched online videos of the tight rope procedure? No I don't know if I want to recommend. Oh you do it or not but you will not be able to see it or feel it. Do guys have a pig to have any strong thoughts. I think it's GonNa be. LSU's year man. I mean they've lost. They've lost for eight straight years. They finally have the team that they've been working towards for a number of of seasons now. They've got the quarterback that they need to finally break the the Nick Sabin curse and even though they're on the road I don't know I just think this is the third year. Did we do the calculation at some point in preparing for your the two of your episode that. We're running that like Nick Saban. In the course of this rivalry is like fourteen and four. No matter which team he's coach goes right. Yeah yeah you'd be silly to bet against Nick Sabin if you go by the odds but I'm going to go against the odds nick. Sabin and math get along quite well. That is the lesson here. All Right Kavita unders. Thank you very much for your time and again anywhere aware where podcasts can be downloaded and subscribe to do that for the lead from wondering and the athletic. Thanks again you guys. Thanks very much Dan all right Dan cool. Thank you good stuff. Check out the lead. Another great wondering show were happy to be part of the family and and happy to they have the lead in her feet every morning. Good stuff yeah.

If you had a black and you knew it was the blackest of all the blacks you wouldn't just call it the blackest black you give it a cool name cool black named like to Challah or Roy and every of the color gets its own name. Mahogony isn't called super it. Maybe isn't called dark as blue. You wouldn't call Emerald Green. It in black is black. They don't even sound like a real thing sound like a slur jussie smollet Beta the cult meet the black is black people yeah but still my sandwich also trevor. How can we know oh for sure is the blackest black they tested it did it go to an Hvac you? Does it go to church for six hours. Can't it make Real Potato Salad Alec. You don't call yourself the blackest you gotta prove yourself what Roy Moore. I think you confused. This doesn't have anything to do with culture all right. This is about applied science. It was basically an experiment experiments in physics. You saw that car. BMW meet the coast cost so black. It's the only card is prone to diabetes. Which is my point? I don't want a car that has to deal with the same systemic issues as me their car so black even if it was self driving get pulled over -scuse excuse me car. I'm going to need you to step out of the car. Would you ever more women right back. I showed my guest tonight investigative reporters at the New York Times who won the Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of Harvey Weinstein the new book is called she he said breaking the sexual harassment story that helped ignites a movement. Please welcome Jodi Kantor and Megan twohey welcome to the daily show and congratulations on a book that I think takes us behind hind the scenes of one of the big stories that has ever hit any country and that is the story of Harvey Weinstein You you wrote the book and You titled It's. She said which is often times when people say oh this is he sheds. He said she said we can't figure it out. Why use that title well? What we really wanted to do was bring you with us? On this investigation. The events of Metoo have come to mean so much to so many people but we can finally tell you the truth of what happened behind the scenes we want you there with us during those first conversations with actresses as they're very nervous even though these are some of the most famous women in in the world to tell us their stories but there are actually some keys in he and she says well for example we want you to meet the kind of deep throat of the Weinstein Investigation Asian Harvey Weinstein's own accountant who had worked for him for thirty years while telling you the stories of what happened in that world seems like it would be extremely risky for anyone who's involved in that world because when the Harvey Weinstein story broke when you broke it it was it was so intense like how hard he worked to prevent anybody from speaking out against him. So how do you even begin to convince somebody to speak up. When the up against Harvey Weinstein well there were so many reasons for these women not to speak up and not go on the record and one of the cases that we made to them was we can't change what's happened to you in the past but if you work with us and we are able to publish the truth we might be able to protect other people from getting hurt by other people in the future from getting hurt xactly because hobbies stories span decades? I mean you have people who are saying this. This was big part of my life. This is what Harvey Weinstein did to me sexual allegations though we've learned remain in this world where people say oh it's murky and and women men versus this that nobody knows for certain UA journalists your reporting on the story but you still have to investigate the women who have come forward with these stories. was there a conflict in how you how you report on that was the is this something that you just have to click into mine and go like I'm investigating the story and that's that well what we were looking for with evidence this had all been in the realm of hearsay and part of what we want people to see in this story. Is that fax ax really how can have social impact when they're carefully gathered so part of what we're explaining here is what our secret settlements. How did we find the trail of how Harvey Weinstein paid off women for these allegations for many years? What other kinds of manipulation did he use to essentially make these women's stories disappear when you look at the obscuring of the truth when you look at how Harvey Weinstein did did it doesn't speak to a large issue in society Eddie you know because everyone's talking about hobbies like that's the worst but is this something that we need to be looking out on a on a larger level? Are they more hobbies out. There was society a Harvey Weinstein. This story story goes way beyond Harvey Weinstein and with additional reporting we were really able to this really turned into an x ray of abuse of power. I mean we were able to pull the curtain back on the machinery that was in place to silence women and cover Weinstein's tracks we push into the question of complicity the individuals and institutions that got glimpses of his wrongdoing and basically look the other way so these are questions that apply to workplaces across the country to individuals and colleague and it really does speak to just a broader abuse of power it really is an interesting conversation about how because in the book you expose women who helped Harvey Weinstein maintain you know his his secrecy and doing these things that that I mean must be you know I think heart wrenching not just as a journalist but as a woman as well finding out how many women help Harvey Weinstein do what he does. This story is filled with surprises about who helped and hindered and Dan you're right lisa bloom famous feminist attorney who's on tv all the time has represented victims and very high profile cases actually crossed lines and to help Harvey Weinstein and she crossed to the other side basically an in the book we reproduce in full a memo in which she in her own hand lease out. It's a kind of audition job memo for Harvey Weinstein on what she's saying to him as they're worried about the rose McGowan allegation that came very early on tweet that name name Harvey Weinstein and Lisa Bloom this famous feminist is saying I will manipulate on your behalf. I will smear on your behalf and here's exactly how I'm going to do it it. It's it's a really heart wrenching story when you read through it but at the same time it feels like it ends in a hopeful full place which I don't know if I'm interpreting the book correctly. Is that what you were trying to achieve well we actually the the last bit of the the last thing we did and of course the reporting was a pretty extraordinary group interview. This fall were mark the three year anniversary of the Access Hollywood tape the two year anniversary of the Weinstein Story and the one year anniversary of Christine Blasi Ford testifying about bright cavenaugh. We brought together in one room. Women who were central in all all three of those stories that helped shift the culture and we ask them what was it like on the other side and it was clear that for all of these women this had been a transforming Ming experience and so ben and there it was clear that it wasn't nobody could be sure what was going to happen next and where the metoo movement was headed but there was there's a consensus that by speaking up they had all helped bring about change. There's no doubt that the METOO movement has affected American forever but has it actually changed society a have you noticed through your journalism the`reporting even your personal experiences that there's actually been a change in what happens in the world. Oh well what's so confounding. Is that everything nothing has changed and nothing has changed on the one hand. We've seen this sort of wave of mass firings. We've seen corporations. Take this more seriously on the other hand. We've seen that the basic structures and systems are still in place and it's not clear that we have yet found a way to solve this problem but we can contribute as journalists sts is you can't solve a problem. You can't see and for a long time. Nobody saw this problem fully and so that's our job to help everybody see it what do you I hope people will get from the book what I hope people will get from. The book is the idea that stories matter you know when Megan just described all of these diverse women we had in this room last January talking about the experiences of coming forward it was everybody from Gwyneth Paltrow to a McDonald's worker to Christine Lousy Ford and what I a woman who had come forward about trump many years earlier Rachel Crooks and what I think they all saw is that these personal intimate stories from their pasts once they shared with other people they had consequence beyond what they ever could have imagined coming together to try and fix. What's happened in the past? Thank you you so much for coming on the show. It's an amazing book. I hope everybody reads it and hopefully the happy ending will will come through banks being on the show aw is available now jody Catherine Meghan everybody.

"kavita davidson" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt

"A brand's rance addition of the businesses sports as we hit in early part of the NFL season it's usually time turnover he really talked about the games players but the business continues to run on and i'll do another branch rants will get into some more guests in future weeks but i wanna talk about at least three ranch here the first one i wanna talk about this idea now with jalen ramsey wanting to be traded and hear you're about to number one picks in the trade make fitzpatrick to the steelers number one pick what went on with our friend antonio brown what went on with zeke elliot went i went on with david clowney so many people are asking me is this a template is this something that's going to happen is the player empowerment become a real thing in the NFL and people are even comparing it or suggesting a comparison to the NBA so i wanna address that sort of put a kabosh on the ladder thought first of all yes while we're seeing in this year and i would say last year to cause that included aaron erin donald who tried it two years ago came back tail between his legs did not get a new contract last year of course did khalil mack as well last year and and then we get into this year all different circumstances you have a zeke elliott staying away going to kabul but coming back with a new contract you have melvin gordon staying away still away record this coming back maybe not coming back but what if he does it'll be on the same contract you david clowney a franchise tag stays away gets traded you have jalen ramsey his i mentioned were with the team but there seems to be issues there may be traded and make a pitch patrick the trade of the star safety to the steelers now that's a different kind of thing and we'll talk about that idea that the steelers might i'm sorry the the dolphins might be tanking a word that gets me upset we'll get we'll get there in a minute is it a template and here's my answer yes and no and really yes if you are special now that's the caveat you can play this game you can leverage teams you can in use your power antonio brown is part of this as well but you better be special and i mean elite like truly elite if you're gonna play this and and what is this this is agitating a front office to the point of them doing something now there are a lot of front offices is that if you try this no matter how special it's not gonna work try this with bill belichick even if you're tom brady good luck with that now the t- the players that have been able to do it you know have you gotten out of their situations by being pains can you know what like brown or have extricated themselves because of an organizational strategy like fitzpatrick and and we'll see what happens with ramsey the players have gotten paid like clowney hasn't gotten paid yet gotten traded got themselves out but the players has gotten paid like brown which we thought was a big contract in oakland that turned out not to be and of course elliott yes special elite so i guess the question comes down to are they empowered yeah with a huge caveat you better be top fifteen player because look at what's it's happening with the LA chargers melvin gordon and this is one of those careful what you wish for he wants an upgraded contract they say okay you're making five this year we're going to give you a deal long term it's gonna average ten double what you're making this year he says no way that's not good enough that's way below top a market i'm staying out they say good he says i want to be traded they say good get us a good trade he tries no oh they say we're done come or not come that is usually what's going to happen now melvin gordon is a really good player but he's not a leaked so there's your template if you're not elite that's probably the best it's going to happen you're going to get an offer but it's not gonna be the offer you want so with melvin gordon careful what you wish for i think the the compared to the NBA is off because NBA players a have fully guaranteed contracts which makes it so different than NFL contracts even the elite of the elite NFL contracts we talked about julio jones just getting that it's a five year deal for jones and everyone talks about almost three those years are fully guaranteed great that's a great deal for an NFL player only only a handful of players like his teammate matt ryan like kirk cousins have three fully guaranteed years but NBA players have all that NBA players players can nonleague dictate terms of the contract cannot only extricate themselves from old situations to new like antonio davis i'm sorry anthony davis sorry but they can bring along players with them NFL players don't in have that isn't happening so to compare now i mean the one comparison is yes NFO players with extraordinary talent went are leveraging their way out of situations okay NBA players with extraordinary talent are not only leveraging into the situation they want they're bringing along they're buddies and they're dictating contract terms where we find out kawhi leonard and paul george not only extricated their situations to get to to the same place but only signed to your commitments an option after to go somewhere else it's a complete dictation of terms as if they wrote the deal and maybe they did so this is where we're going that's my rant right on that two things primarily can NBA players can our NFL players more empowered yes if they're elite truly elite super elite special special and are becoming like NBA no 'cause NBA players have massive advantages they been the players league since lebron's decision asian nine and a half years ago and that is only getting stronger while NFL players are just getting that point probably aren't even at the point of quote unquote the decision decision in the NBA in two thousand and so that's my first of the week there's a new daily sports podcast from wandry laundry was called the lead is for every type of sports fan wants to go beyond the box score it's every weekday morning it's going to bring you one big story from the all star team that let their local or national reporters could be terrible a call from last night in the NFL it could be whatever's going on it's hosted by sports rutta arctic kavita davidson over well about award journalist andrews couto they'll take you close this story that comprehensive reporting fascinating clips exclusive in reasonable hear anyone else so stay tuned the end of this podcast for preview of the lead don't forget to subscribe lead on apple podcasts were you ever you're listening to this right now okay next is about the quarterbacks i am seeing what's going on in the NFL l. like everyone else you're sort of wondering what is going to be the fact of not having superstar quarterbacks in the league we had quite a weekend in this past weekend were two of the market quarterbacks the most marketable players in the league went down one beth rob ben rothlisberger with with the pittsburgh steelers for the year for the year that's that's drastic and then of course drew brees is going to be gone we think for six weeks maybe more maybe less with a thumb injury these are massive departures when you talk about players like that and word comes out that a player player was told not to hit tom brady too hard by the referee listen everyone's asking me i'm the business guy how have they impacted is to lose these quarterbacks and obviously it's not good and i'm partial to green bay when we lost aaron rodgers to the last whatever years you know is a bummer it's a bummer for fans it's a bummer for fans of the league the brand is lesser without rothlisberger without darnold for few weeks without breeze for a few weeks potentially cam newton for a few weeks yeah it's tough but it is a brand it is not the NBA we go back to that discussion for teams are the brand not the players teams are really the brand i think the issue becomes which could happen to pittsburgh definitely may baby new orleans if they get bad that's the problem the problem is not losing the stars it's if they get bad now some people would say that's connected obviously got mason rudolph instead of ben rothlisberger quarterback you're gonna be bad that will be a problem especially as we get later this season listen in the record becomes out of play for the playoffs you know again going back to rogers a couple of years ago it was one thing to lose rogers on the packers but then they started losing if somehow they kept their head above water with whoever the backup boys brett hundley or whoever could be in there yeah there wouldn't be that much of a drop off in interest at least on the packers side but you need to do well so a bigger issue and i know people say these are inextricably linked losing your star quarterback and being a bad team but as long as they keep their head above water they should be fine the problem is really the steelers there are marquee brand if they go in the toilet if things go really south i know it's its own too but it's early early if things go really south that's going to be a big problem you can have more than a few of those because the overall interests in the legal drop off if you start getting marquee team's not doing well so a couple years ago again the packers got bad that's going to hurt the league so it's it's it's twofold so i'm saying the leaks fine it with losing these quarterbacks and lessen toll one is not bad had but a number of teams go south because of those laws quarterbacks can the saints keep it alive until breeze comes back what's gonna happen to the the steelers are they're going to be other losses market teams but if you lose a rogers if you lose a deck prescott if you lose obviously a brady you you know if you lose them a homes of course you know it's gonna have a huge effect because those teams may go south are the patriots gonna go south without brady radio that god forbid that would happen well you know we'll see maybe not with teams in their division who knows in a gun darnold it was obviously a marketable name for the jets he's gone for a while so we'll see what happens with that.

NFL playoff game between the rams and the saints and wire listening please subscribe to lean on Apple. Oh podcasts or wherever you're listening right now coming up the lead in last season's. NFL Playoffs as every football fan remembers the New Orleans Saints were on the verge of a trip to the super bowl breeze that come for one of the burst calls in sports history going crazy as there's no right on the sidelines all anyone could talk about for days. The bad called call had saints fans screaming last night a glaring case of pass interference one of the most obvious case you'll ever see and it wasn't penalized and it led to an unprecedented it ended response from saints fans billboards boycott federal lawsuits against the NFL including reports of a possible class action lawsuit against is the NFL filed by people who lost big money betting on the same the issue even ended up on the floor of the US Senate. The state of Louisiana is outraged because of what happened in the Superdome last Sunday today. We're going to talk with the athletics. Larry holder are a football columnist who lives in New Orleans about why saints fans have taken their quest for justice to new extremes and we'll hear why neither the rule change that came from all of this nor yesterday's rematch between the two teams has changed how saints fans feel from wondering on the Athletic Nick. I'm Kavita Davidson and I'm unders Kelco. It's Monday September sixteenth and this is the lead. It felt like something great was there is something about the emotion and author of the past matter because it's good. This isn't a story the athlete it stays with you Kavita. What's up founders well before we get started. This is the very first episode of the lead and since you and I are the hosts. I thought maybe we should just quickly explain what the show is so. The lead is the show. I always wish existed an alleys wish I could have listened to you. I'm a sports writer obviously but I was a sports fan. I and it's really all about great stories great stories from great sports reporters who are all over the country on the ground. I mean these are journalists who live in these cities and no these teams know these players but you don't have to be a fan of of those teams or those players to care about these stories for example in this first episode you talk to Larry Holder who has covered the New Orleans saints for Almost fifteen the years about why this terrible call provoked such an unprecedented reaction yeah and talking to Larry. Really helped me understand understand why saints fans did what they did. It's really something anyone could identify with so. Should we get to the story. Let's go for it so Larry. Let's start with a very basic question. How important is football. All is the game of football to the city of New Orleans. I'll just put it to you this way. When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans August two thousand and five and of course everyone is recovering from the storm people. Are Literally taking their female checks to by Saint Season tickets. That's how important the saints art to this community and I'd say without the saints returning to the city at that point. I don't think the city would have ever actually rebounded so I would say unlike many if any NFL fan base within the League all right so let's go back to this incredible no call its last this year's. NFC Championship game the saints and the Rams are tied in the fourth quarter and the saints look like they're about to score and book a trip to the Super Bowl. There's a good chance to saints are GonNa Come Away with more points on this possession three what happens next. Tommy Lee Lewis was really kind of an unknown receiver within the saints receiving even core. He's not one of their top targets. He's basically running. Free down the sideline. Quick snap breeze and then Nickell Robey Coleman absolute desperation flies basically headfirst into Tommy. Lee Lewis as drew brees has a perfect pass incomplete. I believe no flag Tommy Lee Lewis to officials are looking at each other. One looks like he's about to take the flag out and throw it a second one on basically says no no no and it's not pass interference or a helmet to helmet call which is also of course illegal in the NFL and the play just goes on so you're you're in the stadium when this happens. How does the crowd react. It was utter a gas crowd's going crazy as there's no flag right on the saint sideline and then Dan course the replay they put it up in the on the big screens in the superdome and everyone loses their minds in all he was doing was was staring down. Lewis in just playing the man and you add it all together and it became a complete and utter debacle the rams get the ball back. The same defense is probably a little bit in Shell Shock. The rams drive down the field they they kicked field goals. Send it to overtime cease. Get the ball first in overtime. Drew brees is hit throws an interception which means when the rams get the ball back. All all they've got to do is kick a field goal. That was a preview the first episode of the lead to hear the rest of the episode listen and subscribe to the lead on Apple podcasts or wherever you're listening right now..

"Hey everybody this is Richard. H welcome to the sports media podcast. My Producers Always Patrick Doc Antonetti this week going a little different this week but I think you're gonNA find. It really really interesting. Our first guest is Garrett graff. He is the author of the bestselling book the only plane in the sky and oral history of nine eleven I can't recommend it enough had Amazon and check it out and Garrett wrote the book basically that expands his amazing piece from the Fifteenth Anniversary of nine eleven where he wrote about all those who were on board Air Force first one with President George W Bush on nine eleven and sort of everything that was going on with a focus on Air Force One that day and now he's written a book full length book that tries to capture you knows best anybody can what the national experience was like on nine eleven and it's an oral history of that really really fascinating we get into how how he put the book together how he did the research white chose what he chose couple of the stories at least at really hit home with me and at the end just how sports played into that day as well so that's Gary graff I they are he. I should say is followed by two of my colleagues at the Athletic Catha Davidson and Andres Kelt. Oh they're the CO host of the lead that is a new podcast from the athletic the first daily podcast for the athletics basic and they're going to try to sort of WanNa know if you can duplicate the success success of the New York Times daily. They're certainly gonNA try to approach it with the same philosophy in the sort of same high end when it comes to storytelling and journalism and and we get into what the lead is and why it exists and what's GonNa be on that show and the first episode came out as we're taping this today today on Monday. September sixteenth is really good. No company Manning here. It's they did an awesome job in that first episodes about the saints getting robbed basically in last year's. NFC Championship impeach game so Garrett graff. I followed by Kavita Davidson and Andres Kelso all coming up on the sports media podcast art as I said at the top Garrett graff is a former editor of Washingtonian and political magazines and if you are familiar with him and I imagine you you might be if you follow me on twitter he certainly written for many publications wired New York Times etc for the purposes of this podcast his book the only plane lean in the sky in oral history of nine eleven is absolutely fascinating. It stems from a piece that I recommended a couple years ago that he wrote for politico. Go I think on the fifteenth anniversary of nine eleven and it just struck Whitney for the quality and depth reporting the way Garrett presented it and Obviously you know as a New Yorker and doesn't really need to be New Yorker but just a day that nobody I think in America will ever forget and Garrett graff joins me today on the sports media podcast Garrett. I know you don't do a lot of sports podcasts. I appreciate you you making the time for this one. Well thank you. I appreciate it and I've always been very appreciative of how supportive you were at the original article you gotTa. I'm not asking about the book let's Talk About Fox and CBS NFL NFL production so the first time in my life I will ever have any contact with sports so all right so to give people a little bit of of background I think chronology is right about this. You published a piece for the fifteenth anniversary of nine eleven about being aboard Air Force One with the the United States George W Bush and at that time you spoke to twenty eight of the people who are around the president that day it ran and political magazine and it was it was to me the absolutely one of the most fascinating things I've read can you can you then take me from that piece to to to what now exists and that is your book the only plane in the Sky Yeah you're absolutely right so this this grew out of a piece that I published for the Fifteenth Anniversary of nine eleven that was about the president's the president's Day that day which people's probably roughly remember he starts in Sarasota Florida in the morning and is reading those of those elementary school students when word of the attack arrives he's hustled aboard Air Force One which sort of keeps him up in the air for most of the day away from Washington until they determine that it see for him to come back to the White House goes to Barksdale Air Force Base off at Air Force Base and finally back to Washington around sort of four or five pm afternoon of Tuesday the eleventh and and it during the final leg he is the only plane left in the sky over the United States alongside the uh-huh fighters that are escorting him as all of the other planes have been grounded reaction to that piece was sending it was just in a couple couple of days. It became the most read article in politico history and I got all sorts of letters and and respond to this ultimately dozens that first day and by the end of the weekend you know a couple of hundred and you know is a writer anytime you get like five emails from readers. You're like oh man like just things really taken off and so you know getting a couple of hundred was was really overwhelming. We're welcoming and there were two that really stuck out in my mind. one was a letter from a you women mother a veteran who had two children seven and nine at the time and she wrote how she had printed out my article and set it aside for so that one day when her kids were old enough to to read it she would be able to help explain and why why their mom had left them to go off to war and then the second was also from another veteran a younger guy army who wrote that he was in middle school on nine eleven and that he had done two tours in Afghanistan one in Iraq Iraq and had never really understood the trauma that the country faced until that day when he read about out the day through President Bush's is and those two reactions really stood out for me as I began to realize how we were seeing this transition to a new generation that had new real emotional connection to nine eleven itself and yet we're living very much with the impact and the consequences of that day you know we're you know especially when you look at the generation who are now serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. You know this year. The eighteenth anniversary marks the the first time in American history that we are deploying people to fight in wars that are older than the people who are being sent to war and so that inspired me to turn that original piece which just focused on Air Force One into a full oral history st of the Entire Day and this book now with the same title the only plane in the sky focuses on the full a a morning tonight coast to coast and teachers about four hundred eighty American ads they lived the day and and you know not just in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and Shanksville but in air traffic control towers in the White House bunker with Vice President Cheney aboard Air Force One with the President on Capitol Hill and then sort of a host of other unique perspectives I mean I talked for the book into one of the men who guarded the tomb of the unknown soldier that day and sort of what it was like for him as he continued to March and guard the Tomb even watching the Pentagon burn on the horizon you know the book opens with the Story of of Frank Culbertson who was the one American off the planet earth that day aboard the International Space Station and follows his day as he watched nine eleven unfold from space so the goal is really to get beyond the facts of the day A. and tell how America lived that day with I I think it's important to think and then one that leadbeater be tonight oral history format to talk to people and let them tell the day in their own words the the attempt attempt to capture what the national experience was like on nine. Eleven is really really a big task and you know certainly better maybe than anybody that your book like sort of theoretically philosophically. It could be fifty thousand pages because you could you could you could essentially almost interview anybody anybody who had a role who is alive or even who wasn't alive because they all have a reflection of it so it strikes me that the real sort of the challenge for this book is to how do you figure out narrative to make it work to capture the the experience and how do you probably pare down from the thousands and thousands of thousands of potential sources our voices you have so what was the blueprint for you how did you he loved doing that. the book is a mix of my own interviews and stories that I've collected over these last three years as well as a number of a primary source our table oral histories done by various institutions and museums and stories and journalists elsewhere there was a really there were a number of institutions after nine eleven have the good sense to go out out and to try to capture some of these stories and understand that you know this was history that needed recording so I ah the first step in this project was you know looking at a lot of those and you know the nine eleven memorial museum in New York the nine eleven tribute center in New York the Pentagon historian the Capitol Hill Historian C. Span the story core and the library array of Congress the flight ninety three national memorial in Shanksville a number of other places Arlington County Public Library in Virginia an old. I was working through this with the someone from the nine eleven museum and oral historian named Jenny Pachuca Okay and Jenny and found about five thousand oral histories that we began to ah to sort of try to sort through in in various archives across the country we ended up with a pile gal that was about two thousand that we collected and read carefully or listened to and one of the things that was really remarkable is that while a lot of these institutions had had the good sense to go out and collect these stories most of the oral histories had never been touched or read or listened listened to basically since the day that they were collected or transcribed and so you know we we actually ended up having to I do a lot of the transcribing ourselves that some of these things that had been done you know a decade ago and that that pile of two two thousand we you know sort of sorted through to end up with about the four hundred eighty voices in this book which represents talked about four hundred archival sources and then about seventy five or eighty of my own work and stories and you're absolutely right. That's sort of part of of what is so amazing about that day is it is so inherently dramatic that you know the the first draft of this book you know even after all of that whittling down you know literally twice the length of the finished book and I'm sure that if if another journalist or historian sat down with a pile of the two thousand transcripts that I started with you know they could write another incredible incredible book of that day you know without a single overlapping quote. you know there are so many stories that I I didn't include in in so many details that I didn't get the chance to include other sort of four hundred eighty people. There are probably only maybe two or three dozen that you follow throughout the day you know most of most of the voices in the buck sort of come and go just as sort of their own role in the drama in the story of the day unfolds and you know they're certainly a number of people who appear only once you know to deliver a single fact or a single observation or single description and and you know there are some absolutely incredible stories that I just didn't have any room for at all. Gary can can you for my listeners because obviously there's a lot of people who listen to this podcast who are either writers broadcasters work in digital. How did you when you have all this kind of source material. How do you go about like literally like the specifics of it. How do you go about figuring out a way to put it in some kind of Order Eric. Do you have a like a gigantic spreadsheet with all. The people are all the sources. You've talked to and then a word doc that you've transcribed door a history. Do you use some kind of story board in an office how did you how were you able to sort of find some clarity to put this project together. I it's a good question and and this this is I've written a couple of books now and sort of every book I finish. I say to myself you know. I don't have any idea how people wrote books before computers. I mean I just sort of literally can't fathom Adam what it was like to write a book before computers and the Internet both in in terms of organization and in terms of being able able to track down you know details and facts that you need to include i..

You ain't got the booty, man. I'm sorry. Here you. I wanna feel like the Queen of Kanda too. I don't get it. I think this is. So you know, I'm working on a document. I talked about it. It's called unplanned. It's about their first Air Jordan sneakers and how it was conceived house released in the marketplace. It's gonna come out in February and just the idea of institutions banning athletes from wearing articles of clothing, does nothing to actually ban the athlete from wearing those go. She's going to be wearing the cat suit at the French Open. More players are going to start wearing. The catsuit is going to completely bass fire and just going to wear it anyway. Absolutely. Humane play. She's like, you know what? I've won that tournament six hundred twelve times. I don't need him, I guess, is that she'll just find something else that's fashion forward and uniquely her and where we've seen her at other the US open. She usually goes pretty fashion forward in New York where she's worn the shorts unitards and she had that denim skirt with the knee highs, sneaker, look. And she had like animal prints, she's she's done a bunch of like kind of, wow. Fashion forward stuff. I think she'll probably just find a way around it. I'm just wondering exactly what the dress code there's going to be because he said they're not gonna go full Wimbledon where you have to wear almost entirely white, but they will have certain limits. And my guess is she'll just be creative and work around them when he says, you have to respect the game in the place that implies that that she just respect. She doesn't respect and she doesn't respect that tournament in that place. And I would say quite the contrary, this woman who has done so much for the game of tennis and not only just the game of tennis, but just for sports and just for for people who who are not be, they're not supposed to be the certain athletes playing over sport if you were like she is broken down. So many barriers on for women for kids from the inner city for for so many athletes and people out there when she says things like I wanted to inspire other moms and be fierce, like we look at her as a cultural leader like beyond say or just so so many art. Tests in enter -tainer 's in who are creators. And that's what she is. She's a creator. She's an artist and to hold her back or limit her on any level is so out of touch. I think, also, and by the way, Spain and fit Sarah Spain, but was always been lions filling in. I think also it's feels like the policing of women and people of color that has been rampant not just in tennis, but in sports, we've seen it aside when boxing I became a sport for women. They forced him to wear skirts in the world championships before they end up walking it back because people were so mad about it. There's a dress code for badminton the Badminton Federation, made women wear skirts or dresses to play at the elite level. We've seen stuff like member when Cam Newton, I know Kavita Davidson. Our old ESPN w colleague was was tweeting about this earlier Cam Newton got bench for not wearing a collared shirt and tie. Even though he was wearing a really dapper outfit or Alan Iverson being the prime example of everything that's wrong with the NBA because of the way he dressed. There's so much. Instances of women and people of color being policed because whatever it is that they're doing, doesn't feel right..
