"Women like the men are obviously more important like they probably have this fucked up mentality that every woman in history has yes. We have all internalized the messaging of misogyny totally all of us. And then when this something like this happens is like reaffirming what you already know. Okay yes. I've been told my whole life. That women are men are superior to women and this is just the way things are look man. The discrepancy is nuts and it isn't just through the experiences a female student athletes. Here's a very clear example of it involving two white men. So gino auriemma is the head coach of the juggernaut university of connecticut. Huskies women's basketball team. They are amazing he has won nine national titles in his career with them and is considered one of the best coaches of all time in basketball period. He makes a little over two million dollars. This season as the head coach. Like one of the most winning head coaches in the history of ncaa basketball okay. Cool on the men's side duke coach mike jetski who's similar. Success makes almost five times as much at ten million year. Tell me what the difference is. Tell me what the difference is. Because i bet you just as many people purchase uconn. Women's huskies basketball gear. They purchase uconn. Men's huskies if not more because the women. The women's team is so good. I'm sure i'm sure you're gonna get to it but like the us women's national team as well like they went to countless world cups. Meghan re pinos jersey had to be one of the most sought after purchased jerseys in all of last year across the board last year the year before act. They are far more successful than the men's team by a factor of a thousand mencia missed world cup and far more well known. I don't know a single name of a single person on the men's national soccer team. I definitely know like half of the women's national. I think that that's a lot of america right now. Definitely know a bunch of players on the us national team and maybe like christian pu. There's no way. The women's national team is not more profitable in terms of sales and revenue right now than the men's team and yet they still make a fraction of what their male counterparts. We're tired. y'all. I can't imagine how women feel especially because like the. Us national team were fighting for the equality. They took it to court fight. Us soccer over how they are being treated from like planes to hotels to how much they were making per year. I i can't imagine law on your side on the sports reporting side. there's not similar discrepancies. An yes yeah. You're gonna get it's half. Do you know when you were like. I'm tired in my script and my outline. I literally have the words side caps. 'cause we know each other so well should we title this episode. We're tired. I know i just felt like it was a great place to close out our season because our podcast. You know it's just inherent in it. Two women talking about sports. I feel like there are so many moments where there are people who probably feel so small like those girls on either field hockey team..

"They'd held them off this entire grant. I'm gonna punch a hole into this wall. I know the main coach said quote. It brought up a lot of emotions yet. Did bringing up emotions right here and correct. She said first and foremost that's offensive and upsetting to think that because of your gender. Your sport is less. We work as hard as any men's team. We work extremely hard at a division one level. Ooh the university of maine field hockey twitter account addressed it as did their star player. Here's another detail. Rachel one of their star players. A senior forward named riley field showed a video of the fireworks display which my girl took place at noon more than an hour after the first overtime ended just a side note fireworks at noon. That is the most ohio thing. I've heard in a minute and i've gotta think it's a. It's a college fireworks display. I'm sure it sucked janke in a statement. The national field hockey coaches association called the incident unacceptable and extremely damaging. They said this felt like they were like going at them. In a passive aggressive way. Which i love to see. I'm just picturing this fireworks display. What are those things called the. They're like little robbers row them on the ground. Very snap picture bungee guys going on the field throwing throwing convers and it's like i feel like the national field. Hockey coach association was kind of like saying the same thing in this. This feels like a a little bit. Petty and i love it. They said quote while we understand that the fireworks were deemed to be an important part of ken state. University's family weekend festivities. It's like it's so lame. Little family could enjoy the firework. Yeah we cannot understand why the university would seemingly prioritize a daytime fireworks display over the competition of a division one women's field hockey contest the optics and the messaging to every field hockey program into every field hockey player. Are that while they matter. They don't matter more than pre game football festivities. Buchan poppers insane. You know the guy that was just like yeah. Go ahead kick off the field. He's the same guy. That's just like i could. I could probably kick all these girls is ass in the wnba like totally get. Yeah score and end this game in like five minutes.

And i'm like no friend. It is not literally was going to ask. It's very different sport so field hockey is somewhere between ice hockey and soccer watts. Ya so like the hockey of your people. We use this stick to move a plastic ball. That's about the size of a baseball but similar in weight to a hockey puck down the field to score net unlike an ice hockey stick. That's more like an l. shape where you can hit with either of the stick. The field hockey stick is more like a jay and it's flat on one side and rounded on the other. It's like a hook. Yeah exactly so an interesting note. Is that if you're left handed like your girl. You essentially have to learn how to play right handed because you can only played in one direction as a result. I now do other things like golf right handed. Oh you're like ambidextrous now a little bit. Wow did you ever used to like hook girls. Jerseys like with the huck me like no no. We do wear mouth guards because it can get violent so is that nothing people do get jade in the head with that stick. Is that what people call you get jeanette because a is that wrong.

Bakari Sellers talks about the death of George Floyd
"Are really looking forward to the next gas considering all the things that have transpired especially up in Minneapolis. Our next guest. We just played a clip from CNN. This morning is Bakari sellers. Who grew up in the State of South Carolina? His father a noted civil rights pioneer. He's been very close to the South Carolina Program Practicing Law for many many years and continuing to to this day in Colombia. And as we say hello to Macari I want to ask him about Certainly the news of the day but we also want to mention for just a second to his brand new book that came out the other day my vanishing country Cari sellers. Thank you very very much for joining us. It's great to have you on the program. Man I I love your show Thankful for this platform and thank you for having me today on. What is a a truly tough day for most of us in this great country? I WanNa talk about that but I just wanted hug for a second. About what compelled you and really push you to writing this book. I mean you're still very young man usually Mars for old decrepit people like me but still on your your early thirties. I'm really interested in how you got to this point. Yeah so you know I. I wanted to write a political book and I'll be honest which Paul that no one wanted to buy it. And so when I sat down and talked about my story coming from the Orangeburg massacre in February eighth to sixty eight where my father was shot. subsequently imprison all the officers. Who fired shots into? The group of students were charged and found guilty. Three young men died in Smith. Samuel eminent Delano Middleton My father was shot and imprisoned. I chronicled that all the way through my rise to being young black elected official in the country. All the way through Charleston South Carolina. Where I lost my good friend Clemente. I'm in the Charleston massacre and so I just highlight the ups and downs and the trauma that comes along with being a person of color and what I the reason I wrote. This book is so that we could All have some sense of understanding so we begin to have conversations about healing this country And you know your book comes out during a pandemic and it also comes out around the death of Ahmad. Aubrey the desktop Brianna Taylor. Now we had this death in Minneapolis. And so I think it's an evergreen book and You know it's a discussion. It's difficult but necessary to have the car. It's it's so easy for all of us to talk about. No one should act this way but I wanNA get deeper because in watching what you did this morning and really knowing you quite well and hearing you speak out on so many other issues. I really want you to get to the heart of the matter here. this is bigger than than an isolated incident in. Minneapolis or Georgia or somewhere else. Is it not it is and you know. It's it's not just myself but you see you see all these athletes you see Lebron James of the world you see. I'm all the list of NBA players goes far and wide and even young college athletes are taking span. Because Y- for me personally it's about what do I tell my black children in this country and I know a lot of your listeners are like here we go again a. Why are we going down this path? But it's the fact that I have to have conversations with children that others do not and you know the crime that was Allegedly committed was forgery of a twenty dollar bill. He didn't even know that there's evidence to say he didn't even know that the twenty dollar bill was fake But regardless the penalty should not be a death penalty crime and so now I have a fifteen year. Old Daughter should be fifteen on June first. Who is about to Get her permit. You wouldn't do. I tell her. What do I teach her? I'm raising twins that are seventeen months old and one is a boy stokely. What do I tell him in? So that pain and this is not new You know it goes back to Emmett. Till and mega rivers Jimmy Jackson in the Orangeburg massacre the massacre on the campus of Jesse Jackson State in Kent State all the way through The recent incidents that we've had and so the question is when will it stop and I you know. I think that we have to begin to have difficult conversations in this country and some people don't want to have but I'm pressing forward to make to let people know that there is a real pain in this country and and there's painful by a lot of people today particularly black people in this country and we have to hear that pain. He wrote the other day. Being Black in America is almost perpetual state of grieving. I I know I know you well enough to understand but I want you to explain to to those out there and your political commentator. You're you're you know what I'm referring to. How do you explain that to the rest of us? You know. I I say that before you turn me off turn me down I say? Why don't you turn me up and let's have a conversation? Where is listening and understand and I come from a place where my father was literally shot a law enforcement and I had the utmost respect for law enforcement officers. My that was literally shot. My father was taken away from my family because he was actually arrested. For that night I father became the first and only one man riot in the history of this country. He was charged tried and convicted of rioting because he was a member of the Civil Rights Organization. They denied bond and they housed them on death row. My mother had to carry my sister my oldest sister their oldest child. She carried and gave birth while my father was in prison. And so when you talk about that trauma that emerged from my father went through the burden of being a black man in the south with felony. You carry all of that. And I'd had a great deal of success in my life and my job is to make sure that others are able to get access to those blessings as well and then I lived through the Charleston massacre. Paul like my good friend. Clemente painting he was was murdered in Bible. Study You know he let somebody come into his church. He set them beside him and he was shot in the net. And so when you think about all of these things and you think about the fact that I'm now living for them and there's no one there's absolutely no one in their right mind. They can lie to you. They can call in today until you that amount all day deserve today. Brianna Taylor. She was an emt worker. They served been no knock warrant. Went in and shot her and they can't tell you. The George Minneapolis deserved I either. And so that is what I'm saying. We have to begin to understand the reasons why and before you turn the conversations like this down. Let's turn them up. And let's have an honest conversation about how we move forward to broaden this because you of all people know it's twenty twenty. The political season never ends and a lot of people bacar just already made up their mind not so much the election but about everything this conversation. We're having the pandemic and I want you to try to take us there because I preach on this program. I don't want to talk about politics. But you can't get away from politics and especially at a time like this one hundred thousand people who died Do through the growing virus The overwhelming majority of these individuals especially in these large cities. The data points are are people of Color. I mean we have to talk about that This season is upon us. And you know regardless I want people to exercise their right to vote their right to vote safely You know you politics part of everything we do in life and you know I ask. 'cause I'm a big game cut fan and I was like the way to get you know my game friends and my. I don't have any clemson friends but you know the the people who go to school at Clinton though the way you get them to stay at home and stay inside and say that if we do not stay inside we won't have football season and so we're living. A lot of people are living through a great deal of trauma You know we're we're pausing we aren't able to go out. We aren't able to be with loved ones. If you get sick and have to go to the hospital you have to go by yourself
Paul Finebaum reacts to Michigan president's comments
"Was some very important news yesterday. Out of the University of Michigan where the President Dr Mark Schuessel? Who has an immunologist by training? Not The most common thing you see for a president a State University made a lot of news by tapping down some of the positivie about college football talking about how there would be no college football unless students were on campus. He referred to his training as a medical doctor. Phd In relation to doubting seriously that there could be college football fans in the stadiums and they also broke down the importance of college football but in the context of the University of Michigan overall. Dowse a little water on that as well saying that the university stand on its own. This comes in some contrast to what Jim told us last week on on get up when he said he would be okay with football. As long as he didn't he said he would. He would prefer fans but it would be okay without fans who better to talk to you than Giannis. Bacon was written callous books on the University of Michigan and certainly among the very leading experts in the world the on that subject John. Thank you Happy Memorial Day and first of all great to have you on with us and we hope you've been safe and well over these last couple of months Always a pleasure Paul and so far so good. The only we need is forty hours of daycare for weeks. My four and a half year old kid if you've got a babysitter send them up For All you've done for us I'll I'll give you some good recommendations Thank you. Let's talk about the this. I thought was a really fascinating comment first of all. Let's talk about President Schnitzel in terms of who is he what his credentials are then. They're incredible but have someone like that. Move into the presidency at school at the University of Michigan. Well his background is Brown University And California cal Berkeley so the pedigree and all that he's got a PhD in some former science probably immunology say as well as an MD. So you couldn't call them stupid He's probably also not the biggest football fan in the world. I think he probably loves the Brown model. Where you play. But it's not Nearly the importance as it is in the big ten or the SEC and so on But also knows where he is that Hundred Thousand People Disagree and they love it quite a bit so he is definitely on a high wire there But clearly his roles immunologist took over in his latest. Talk as you said if you days ago and I guess yesterday sorry And Yeah you say is very clear about this that if all the students aren't on campus. We're not going to have intercollegiate sports of any sort at least at Michigan which is not to say the big ten goes along with that or the rest of college athletics. But it's pretty hard back back down from that once you've said that and as you pointed out Paul that goes counter to what Jim Harbaugh said a few days earlier that he'll take football and almost any form Fans in the stands or not. Some graduated schedule some sort of Not Black or white but Modified approach would be fine with Jim. Which I'm sure is almost all major college football coach so I see a conflict there and I'm pretty sure I know who's going to win it. Yeah I mean there may be some school football coaches that have the clout to go head to head with the president. I doubt Jim Harbaugh wants to do that. Unless it's twenty minutes after beating. Ohio state I I I WANNA ask you. I WanNa ask you about about his comments about the budget. You know the school inside and now obviously I mean. I don't want to translate for him but he seemed to be saying that you know we we would this football but we're going on with or without it. Yeah and Miskin can right now Now the catch that is not all the big ten can goes out football Sunday. The MAC you can't. I mean look at Eastern Michigan Kent State places like that Miami of Ohio so the separation between haves and have-nots stronger not weaker. Now its biggest. Cost Ball is of course nationwide and gets all the attention at Michigan. The budget for the entire Athletic Department is around one hundred and eighty five million dollars which is almost doubled in ten years which says something right there and yet the budget for the whole university assist seven billion with a B. dollars so and half of that as a medical school on the health system so the football budget is big. It might beat us That's what they spend on rubber gloves at the hospital. So it's not that big a deal to the president. John you have a pretty good pulse on the The Michigan Fan base. I asked gently what has been the reaction about what the president said yesterday. Some folks feel yeah. Maybe there's mixed generous maybe it is It is going to be hard to argue though without students on campus having football. You're talking about exploiting the students who are in your student athletes who are not paid etc. I was become a hot button. Issue the last few years as it always should be I think That becomes greater when you're perhaps risking their health When you're not risking the other students health To play football. So that's one point of view. The flip side of course is that stadium is both the hold one hundred ten thousand people and if not for nothing of course so obviously people wanNA play football In any way she performed they possibly can Go Back Paul and nineteen eighteen when Michigan played the first game during the pandemic early October. And it flared up nationwide thereafter so they did not play again until November The team went five that your politics and on the big ten which counts as big ten champs and yes five Cowan as national champs. If only if only we're talking to John Bacon The New York Times bestselling author. He's written countless books on the University of Michigan. I WanNa take a break here because there are many issues beyond what the Michigan President feels. Although his comments probably going to be heard pretty loudly and other ivory towers around the country. I WanNa talk to John when we come back about what college football faces in trying to open up more comments from the esteemed author John U

"You're listening to a special episode of Two broads. Talking Politics on the fiftieth anniversary of the shooting at Kent State University and Battle on May Fourth Nineteen Seventy Round twelve twenty four. Pm on the campus of Kent State University about a dozen Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire on a group of students who are protesting the Vietnam war over the course of thirteen seconds. Sixty seven bullets flew four. Students were killed and another nine were injured also on the campus. That day were to students who are very special to me. My parents Stephen Terry pollick over the years. I've talked to them about the events of May fourth many times. This is the first time that they've sat down on the record and talked about what happened that day. So I'm on now with my parents. Steve and Terry pollock. Who were at Kent State in Nineteen Seventy and just sort of talk through a little bit about their their reflections their memories and how it shaped their lives a little bit. So thank you very much. I know I sort of browbeat you guys doing this so thank you know you never brought me. Nope nope numbers so. I don't actually ever remember a time when I didn't know about this happening. I'm sure you didn't tell me when I was a toddler or something but I just sort of grew up knowing that this was something that had happened. Let's set the stage a little bit for people who aren't as familiar with it. So in May may fourth nineteen seventy eight. You were both sophomores at cuts. So is the end of your sophomore year.

"The deaths of four students at Kent State University on May Fourth Nineteen seventy shook the entire Nation newspaper headlines and nightly news broadcasts across the country featured the shooting as their top story questions began almost as soon as the first reports emerged from the campus. Why had the Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire? How did the protest reach the point of requiring lethal force? Why were those four students? Dead further details emerged as well of the four students killed only two of them were part of the protests. One of them a girl named Sandra Scheuer was simply walking to class over. One hundred thirty yards from the Grassy Commons rumors began to fly. That students had attacked the soldiers or that a sniper had fired on their ranks. More speculation claimed that the alleged student attacks were a story manufactured to justify lethal force against the protesters as gossip and attention. Grabbing headlines gripped the nation the mystery of why the order to fire was given if it had been at all was never solved but most historians agree that the tension on campus between the protesting students and the authorities sent to disperse or arrest them had reached a breaking point by the afternoon of Monday. May fourth students were wrapped up in the nationwide anti-vietnam war campaign the conservative local public including the military and government saw them as agitators. Who simply wanted to incite violence against law enforcement regardless of the cause. They claim to be supporting. They saw proof of their fears when the students burned down the ROTC building on campus the weekend before the shooting the National Guard was called in tensions kept mounting the two commanding officers of the National Guardsmen General Sylvester del Corso and Robert Canterbury comments to the press about the violence encountered during Kent State protests. Del Corso had said like Ohio Law says use any force that is necessary even to the point of shooting just before the shooting. Governor James Rhodes said in a press conference that the radical student protesters were worse than the Brown shirts and the communist efforts. They're the worst type of people that we harbor in America. Even after the shooting as graphic photographs of dead students were splayed across televisions and newspapers. The public sentiment about the violence remained split. Some were horrified and saw the deaths as unacceptable state violence some were more ambivalent as one of the Kent State. Professors wrote a month later. The violence on campus was a rather tragic series of events which added up the wrong way. Still others argued that the shootings had been justified that the students had escalated things themselves. This final seemed to win out at a legal level the US Department of Justice decided that there would be no federal grand jury investigation into the shootings. The families of the four slain students were crushed and petitioned to have the case reexamined. Millions of students went on strike across the country then three years later the victims got a second chance. After the Watergate scandal broke the Justice Department reversed its decision and convened. A grand jury. Aid of the guardsmen were indicted and brought into court on March twenty ninth nineteen seventy four. However the result was anti-climactic. The trial ended abruptly the following November with the acquittal of all eight soldiers. The families of the Kent State victims however still weren't ready to give up. They decided to file civil lawsuits against the Ohio. State government eventually consolidating into a single suit against the governor. The plaintiffs sought forty six million dollars in damages. Their trial lasted fifteen weeks. But once again the law fell on the side of the National Guard in the end the judge ruled that the slain students had not been denied their rights or been victims of want misconduct or negligence. The case was dismissed. Several appeals eventually reached an out of court settlement to support the needs of the wounded students but no culpability was ever assigned for the four deaths after the trials. The Kent State massacre faded into history as a final benchmark of the tumultuous Vietnam War era. The shooting became a shorthand for the bitter divisive politics around the war and for the widespread exhaustion that was starting to set in by nineteen seventy. The growing apathy of the American public was encapsulated by the lack of outrage about the massacre in the ensuing years media debates about the shooting faded. Little attention was paid to the lack of legal justice for the victims and ultimately the events at Kent State had little effect on American foreign policy. The media moved on to cover other scandals throughout the early nineteen seventies but some echoes from the massacre continued through the decades. A Kent State Journalism Student named John Filo one Pulitzer Prize for his photography. On the day of the shooting specifically for a famous image depicting a young woman screaming over the corpse of one of the dead students that image remains a haunting iconic symbol and to this day? A memorial candlelight vigil is held annually at the site of the shooting. Reuniting survivors and victims families..

Minisode: Mob Dogs and Remembering the Kent State Massacre
"Subject line gives it away so I'll just read it. Greetings from the Mid West. Let's get right into it. It was the mid eighties and my mom had a wild perm and my brother and I were not yet around to drive her. And My Dad Bananas Bananas premiered last week on the great network from code murder. My parents had just bought their first home in a suburb just south west to Chicago. I just did that with a Chicago accent Chicago. One day the real estate agent that sold them. Their house showed up at their door with the dog and asked them if they wanted to keep it. My Mom being the Animal Lover. She is happily took him in without question. How it doesn't happen to me. I want that to happen to me. Ding Dong yes. Do you want the best dog ever? Yes he was a beautiful amber and red golden retriever. That my parents named Duke rolled up beautiful being footage stock. The famous talking been`do apparently the real estate agent. Let's call her. Peggy was in the process of showing a nearby home that had belonged to a Chicago mobster. Who was recently murdered? The man had left behind his widow as well as his dog. You may see where this is going. He noticed that the mobster's widow would leave the dog tied up in the backyard all day long and did not seem to care for him at all so one day she took matters into her own hands snuck into the ladies backyard all my the dog and brought him to my parents. As far as my parents know the woman never went looking for him which was for the best. Since I would imagine it'd be it'd be bad to piss off a mobster's widow when I asked my mom to tell me more about the story she also mentioned that Duke was supposedly a gift from one mobster to another. He was purchased and Likely a pretty expensive present. My mom adopts all her pets from shelters so duke was the only purebred dog. She's ever had my parents say the duke was one of the sweetest dogs and I can only wonder what kinds of things he saw before he ended up with them. I hope you enjoyed this story. It's one of my family's favorites. Thank you all for what you do. And for keeping me company as I run up and down my stairs in an attempt to exercise from home seeing you in Milwaukee last May was a dream come true and I hope to see another live show when this is all over. We do to stay. Well S. T. G. M. A. That's a great story. That's a great story. I WANNA mobbed odd little lot lately. Dangerous that real estate agent was a very brave woman. The AC for her bold okay. This one just goes hi. I just finished the latest episode about the Kent State Massacre. My husband's from Kent and his whole family has a connection to the university in one way or another. The first time I went back with him his mom was driving us around showing us things in town when we got to campus. She drove us to the now parking lot. Where the massacre happened and began to tell us her story of that day but first a meet cute. My mother-in-law was in the first nursing class at Kent State. And My father-in-law drove for the campus. Bus Service several times a week. He drove the nursing students to Cleveland to complete training at hospital there after a few trips he and my husband's mom hit it off and began dating. I'm not sure the amount of time they were dating before the massacre but it was enough time that he knew her family well and had been to her parents house many times on the day. The massacre tensions on campus were high and my mother-in-law was in her dorm just behind the hill. Where the shooting took place. She watched from her window. As students came pouring over the hill following the gunshots. She then got the order that everyone had to be off campus immediately and got a ride back to Cleveland to her parents. House with some people from her dorm this whole time. She knew that my father in law was somewhere on campus but had not been able to get a hold of him all day. She worried as she sat at her parents house. Not Knowing if he was okay or not as they were getting ready to eat dinner. A bus pulled onto the suburban neighborhood street where her parents lived. She was relieved. As my father-in-law got out of the bus and exhaustedly sat down to dinner with them. Turns out as soon as he heard about the evacuation order. He began filling up the campus bus with students and drove back and forth to Cleveland. All Day it's about I know it's about a forty five minute drive to get students to the airport and other safe places. They needed to go. The whole family was so relieved to see that last one at pulled up on that little neighborhoods street. This story struck me in this time that we are seeing how people who do jobs. We normally wouldn't stop to think about can be realized as essential in the wake of the tragedy my father-in-law knew it was essential for the students to get out and realized he had the ability to do that. He kept working for the campus bus service and eventually went on to run it for a few years. He and my mother in law spent the rest of their lives in Kent and raise four kids. Who all went to Kent State? Not a May. Fourth goes by that. My husband doesn't take a moment to recognize an important part of history. That day is even though it happened before he was born. Stay sexy and flirt with your bus driver Rachel. Oh I love that so good all I know so good luck for the helpers. Everyone is Mr Roger
"kent state" Discussed on Here & Now
"Issue. The students did not leave. They were unarmed. They hurled rocks and soldiers opened fire for students. Were killed a number of others injured. In what's known as the Kent State Massacre Robert? Giles was managing editor of the Akron Beacon. Journal back then. He is the author of the book when truth mattered the Kent State Shootings Fifty Years Later published this week. Robert Charles. Welcome to here now. Thank you nice to be with you. The Kent State shootings happened during a time when there were more than nine thousand protests from August of nineteen sixty nine to August of nineteen seventy the protests were about the Vietnam War more than fifty thousand young. Americans had died in the war by that time Ken state though was the only campus were students. Protesting lost their lives. You as we said. We're the managing editor of the local newspaper. You're put in charge by the big boss. He was out of the country he said to you. Don't screw up in not knowing that something as monumental as this would happen. Can you tell us why this particular story in your long career has stood out and kind of haunted your memory since those days can stay was a national tragedy? The students were protesting the Vietnam War and particularly president. Nixon decision defend. Us troops into Cambodia In those days people trusted their newspapers. They trusted their newspapers. Give them the best available version of the truth and we had been covering Demonstrations at Kent State campus for a long time. We were very well prepared And we worked under great pressure and it gave the public a truthful account and Wintry battered is a powerful reminder. Of why truth did matter in my view party. The issue here is that there were different versions of what happened in different newspapers. In Your newspaper the Akron Beacon Journal happened to have the story correctly in the first newspapers that you put out whereas the big newspapers around did not have correctly. What were the differences difference was that we are well prepared? We had a a young journalism student who just graduated. Enjoy Dr Staff and who knew the layout of Taylor Hall which is a big building where the shooting took place and I found that he went into the Dean's office found Margaret Brown. He he said. Can I use your telephone? She a secretary there. She was the secretary and she held the phone. She said well you hold the phone for me and so she said okay. I'll do that. And then the young student and now I reporter Jeff Salad at the moment of shooting. Jeff came in and began to report over the open telephone line to our newsroom in Akron and by the time our last edition went to press We had all the names of the dead and the wounded and complete explanation of of what had happened. So you're attributing that to the fact that you had a reporter who knew the campus very well. Who Do the people there well enough to be able to get the story? When when some of the large newspapers were reporting that for instance to students had died and two national guardsmen had died. That was not correct to you. You had correctly that it was four students who died when that news came out. I mean these are people who when they hear that both students in national guardsmen died. This is part of the national. Tragedy is enormous story. And so I know you wanted to make sure that you got it right. Yeah the reason that there was this conflict was that the UPI had a reporter who overheard telephone conversation on the guards telephone. That said we've got two dead here. And he assumed the two dead were guardsmen and it was very troubling to us because we knew that it would feed into the impression by many opponents of the students on that the riot and the shooting was in in fact started by students so we had our own reporters eyewitness account and pretty soon The correction was made by UPI. And that truth that there were four students killed held up who was it who asserted at one point in the aftermath of this. That one of the students was acting as a sniper in. That's what set off the fire. From the national guardsmen. That came right from the Guard. Commander and the guard kept using that trying to make the case that the students the protesters were to blame one of the reasons that that version was used was that next to the shooting site was a metal sculpture and there was a bullet hole in the sculpture. So we found we got a piece of metal we got the sculptor come up with an marksman and we did some test shots and it actually proves the reverse that the whole was made by a bullet came from the direction of where the guys working we published that story and that has pretty well diffused sniper argument kind of went away so let me ask you this then you call the book when truth mattered. The Kent State shootings fifty years later. Truth degree still matters now. But what's the relevance to what happened then to now? Well there's a public hunger for truth today there was then and the focus is really on Forgetting accurate information. It's and trusted so much more critical than ever. And if you think about the truthful story that we're trying to dig out today. The best reporting comes from people reporters who are relying on the experts. Well that was true back in nineteen seventy as well that really cuts through those. Who Want to talk about conspiracy theories and other things that simply. Don't hold up to the to the light of day. So there's a parallel there that I think holds up from nineteen seventy two two thousand and twenty Robert. Giles was the managing editor of the Akron Beacon Journal back during the Kent State shootings. He is the author of the book when truth mattered the Kent State shootings fifty years later. Thank you so much for speaking with us. Good luck and thank you and good luck to you. Look your listers say safe in Italy? There's more bad news and a glimmer of hope. The number of corona virus deaths is now nearing fourteen thousand but the rate of new infections is rising more slowly every day the term plateau is being used a lot but authorities are desperate for people not to let their guard down.
Let's Not Talk About Politics
"And now on to the episode about yeah. Let's not speak about politics and I hope this gave those of you who don't want me to speak about politics enough time to stop listing if what. I'm about to say offend you because I am going to talk about the P. Word Politics and so here we are again. Elections politics divisiveness separation tribal rage. Yet it feels. We have never had even a moment out of this boiling pot. Since two thousand fifteen it's been a tumultuous time for the US The UK we've had tumultuous times before in this country in the world but for most of us alive today and for what. I imagined to be the bulk of my podcast listeners. We haven't witnessed this level of unrest distrust and anger before I have though and those older than me certainly have. It was a time of major unrest in the nineteen sixties when I was growing up with protests and violence all around US stemming from reactions to racial injustice and the Vietnam War. This is the time I was growing up. I lived in a small town in Ohio man away. Ohio located about twenty minutes or so from Kent State University where protests and riots over the Vietnam War ended in the unspeakable the May fourth nineteen seventy massacre of four unarmed college students by the Ohio National Guard and that was fifty years ago. It's hard to believe because it's very real time in my memory. All the color sows emotions are right at the surface and looking the other way and politely. Not Speaking of the things of the world was not an option for me at that time and it isn't now either and long before these times of distrust and questioning and long before Kent State University. The massacre we can recount multiple times. Were OUR COUNTRY. Our government and the world was a real scary place to be. It's as old as human history. It is a part of who we are as humans we cling to ideas of self and the world and these ideas that we cling to are largely formed in a cloud of ignorance in views. Not based on things as they are and it is from that ignorance mistrust fear anger tribal rage and wars begin yesterday. I decided to talk about the sticky subject of addressing the world in its politics head on although I've touched on it a bit up in episode twenty to release your cows which initiated a few negative podcast reviews in emails and also an episode. Fourteen prost protesting. What's in your mind and experience with a follower? This week led to the seed thought of this episode. I wrote a bit about it on the Public Facebook Group for Everyday Buddhism. I said sometimes. People request friendship with me on my personal facebook page in addition to joining the public facebook group for. Everyday Buddhism and as an. Fyi I have to say I'm in a very. I'm a very imperfect human being just like all of us in Pure Land Buddhism that is referred to as bamboo nature meaning were foolish beings and we always do things right. It is actually wonderful to understand except that about ourselves because it helps us have compassion for others and actually it helps us have compassion for ourselves. All of this. I'm talking about now. Is to introduce something that happened this week. Someone who follows this group? The everyday Buddhism facebook page was also a friend on my personal facebook page. The person message me through a private message messenger and then quit the private group saying this. I was hoping this would be a place of peace and kindness and not political posts now. My first thought was political. Posts are not necessarily unkind. It's all in how you do things. It's about skillful means. But I replied saying that. His her reaction was to my personal page and not to the public group. Typically even on my personal facebook page I avoid politics yet. Sometimes I will post something funny or something. I have a excuse. Me Deep Personal. Concern about that intersects with political life. Which which it's hard not to in this current world. We live in but I do not post these things on the group page the everyday Buddhism group page. Nor do I approve or my other moderators approve such posts? And when I do post on my personal page I always make sure. It's not devicive or mean-spirited or filled with anger so even if this person considered my own personal facebook page A. Place a public place which it's not. It's my personal page. I try hard to make it a place of kindness. All this is to say that. What makes us react in the way? This person did is our expectations. The world is political and its financial and it's warring and it's all sorts of things we may not want to talk about or even look at but the beauty of Buddhism is that as a part of our practice. We try to see things as they are and not as we hope or would expect them to be and that includes seeing people are Dharma friends and all people the way they are but with kindness you will. There's two truths but the two truths are one truth in Buddhism. Some Sarah is Nirvana Nirvana. Is Sam Sahra? Form is emptiness and emptiness is form this is from the heart sutra if you are a friend on my page remember. It's my page a foolish being and not a Buddha. So that's what I wrote on the Public. Everyday Buddhism facebook group to to sort of talk about what just happened in a way to reflect on those things how I see them from a Buddhist perspective but I need to say more one of the things that distinguishes Buddhism from other spiritual practices and religions is that it is very much about being in the world and not about a scaping it
Early Bowl Games, CFB Playoff & a Conversation with Jim Delany
"Joe's I'm Stewart Mandel L.. Joined by Bruce Feldman for our Christmas week episode Bruce a really special guest Pleased to have the outgoing big ten commissioner Jim Delaney on this show here a little bit. He is down to his last ten days or so on the job. But I How is your house your viewing experience first weekend of Bowl Games? It was good I got to see most of the Games. It was one thing I'll say is it was three. NFL Games. That ran on Saturday in those games. Were more competitive Than some of the bowl games I gotTA admit You know hats off to Fau. They had a coaching change and even without the coaching change. I think a lot of people would have thought okay. You have a bigger group of five really good team. SMU AGAINST A smaller group of five and it turned out to be a blow out but not the way. Yeah probably a lot of us would have expected so hats off to the owls. I thought that was a real head-turner The other one that jumped out at me. I think is Kent State it considering how bad that program was Not long ago I mean Sean. Lewis has stepped up there and really made a a huge impact. They are a fun team to watch they at their first bowl win in school history On the first first day of the bowl games it was one of those reminders of what I think because they had to really scrap just to get to be bowl eligible. I think that they are a great example of Y. No there aren't too many bowls it's five hundred team that got into a bowl game. They were impressive how they handled it. And it means a ton to that program Graham and I think Those players deserve the spotlight. Yeah I got that one wrong. I picked Utah State to win by like thirty. Whoops that's bowl season for ya the SMU ONE SMU Fau? Definitely surprise me as well. I think that that. SMU's one of those teams that got a lot the hype because they were doing things they hadn't done a long time and then it just kind of unraveled You know their their signature win was TCU and then TCU doesn't end up making a ballgame So hey that crazy shootout with memphis though You know it's interesting. There was a time when everybody was lobbying for their respective team. Conference for the Group of five New Year six bowl and Michael Rescue was furious that at one point. SMU is ranked behind Appalachian State. Obviously Mountain West. People were furious. That Boise State didn't get more credit Compared to the AC and then both SMU eastbound Boise State Mountain West Champ gets blown out by Washington honestly a Washington team. That wasn't all that great this year but I felt like nick and kind of I think you had the same hunches. Well and Chris Petersen's last game that they would. They would come to play and they did. That was a Thorough domination and now we all wait to see what Jacobson do. Yeah look I mean this is now Jimmy Lakes program. There's already been a little staff shakeup. Bush Hamden the offense coordinator. WHO's there for two seasons? He is already out as well as One other offense of assistant so one thing to keep an eye on and I'm GonNa have a story on this on the athletic Later this week is there's a lot of sizeable offensive coordinator vacancies out there. So Bunch in the PAC twelve oregon is looking for an offense coordinator as his Washington. As is cal- I think there's going to be quite a few more coming There's you know look. There could be a few big ones in the south as well as the ones that already have had coaching changes. This is where they're looking for guys so it's an interesting subplot to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks Again as we mentioned a few weeks back You you know. We both have a lot of respect for Chris. Peterson thought it was cool. To see the way he went out We'll see if he ever comes back to coaching or what he does next. He's somebody I would. I'd love to have on the podcast at some point down the road Just because I always thought he was one of the more interesting people in coaching even though sometimes he didn't always WanNa show oh you his hand publicly so hats off to him stew before we get to Jim Delany though This is probably our only chance to restore at least on the audible to talk about the semi final games. And you'd think it feels like they're way off in the distance but as we're taping this They're less than a week away. feels like the right up on us. Does I mean to me. The teams arrived working on this part on Sunday night and the teams arrived. I think a couple of them at least arrived in Phoenix already. It's nuts it's It's playoff semi final week already. So how do you break this down. I know you didn't want to tip your hand on what was going on especially in Europe ballgame. You're going to be covering the one in Phoenix covering the one Atlanta for the athletic. So Oh

"kent state" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Okay so the the shootings things just happened to the crowd has been quelled the dead and wounded and taken away in ambulances and now we've reached the aftermath idiot and otherwise yeah President President Nixon wasn't Super Compassionate. He had earlier been overheard calling them bums. This wasn't in his press release obviously but it definitely played got out in the press did not bode well for his reputation and he said when descent turns to violence it invites tragedy fed was the official line. That was the official line which is pretty cold. That's the president like yeah you would you. Would you pay for much. his vice president agnew. He said it was predictable. also not. Super Compassionate no considering this these were Americans were shot and killed right two of which were just walking to class he called them a bunch of scared kids with guns the national guardsmen price speechwriter for Nixon yeah which is true yeah so basically the whole the whole gins gray. You know it is like they probably were scared for sure and and yeah. I think that's fair. I think also though it's it's one sided to like he's he's saying and then also the the other side were scared angry kids with rocks yeah like the only way you can even remove the gray but you'd have to find out each person who shot and what their motive was CA. Some were probably scared out of their mind reacted there has been some some people later on that said that they some got together and decided to do this some of the guardsmen right so when they they had been pushing the crowd back onto the practice football field apparently while they were loitering there have been allegations that a couple of the guardsmen said. Hey when we marched back up the hill we're going to turn and fire right. It's never been proven but a few more than a couple historians have level that accusation there was also so immediate word that the guardsmen said they were acting in self-defence because they there was a sniper on the rooftops in the air being fired on they found out that there were audio recordings of this and that was quickly changed to well. It was self defense because these people were throwing rocks at us. Yeah there was a presidential commission. Obviously they concluded it was quote unnecessary unwarranted and inexcusable and then in an F. B. I. Investigation and found that the guardsmen fabricated their defense and they were not intrude danger that was FBI so the a presidential commission and the FBI investigation both said like the shouldn't have happened in like it's on the guardsmen but that wasn't a mood of the nation for the most part there was a Gallup poll that was conducted uh-huh shortly after the majority of Americans said that it was the protesters fought for protesting. Yeah I mean it went to trial two. It wasn't just like like oh well. This happened in. It's Super Sad in federal trial it was dismissed because of what was called a weak case by the guardsmen and then league grand jury in Ohio put the blame on the university officials and the protesters and not the guardsmen and then there was a civil trial in nineteen seventy nine settled out of court where the victims and families got a collective some of six hundred seventy five thousand dollars collective some meaning. I guess that was for all of them right yeah. They'll split that and no policy was apology was issued they did issue a signed statement expressing regret. You want to hear it yeah so this is the sign statement that the that was that came out of the civil trial that the Ohio National Guard released to the families of the victims in retrospect the tragedy of May Fourth Nineteen seventy should not have occurred the students may have believed they were right in continuing their mass protest in response to the Cambodian invasion. Even though this protest followed the posting and reading by the University of an order to ban rallies and in order to disperse these orders have since been determined by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to have I've been lawful some of the guardsmen on Blanket Hill fearful and anxious from prior events may have believed their own in their own minds that their lives were in danger. Hindsight suggests is that another method would've resolved the confrontation. Better ways must be found to deal with such a confrontation. We devoutly wish that means had been found to avoid the May fourth events culminating in the guard shootings and the reversible deaths and injuries we deeply regret those events and are profoundly saddened by the deaths of four students and the wounding of nine others which resulted we hope that the agreement to end the litigation will help to wash the tragic memories regarding that said day apology no sort of like we regret hindsight being twenty twenty. We might have should have done something differently saying we regret instead of. I'm sorry sorry is yeah. It's a big flashing light. It's a big diff- and for many years they the university itself wasn't quite sure how to handle moving forward in Memoriam and otherwise in the seventies they the officials at Kent State failed. They tried to you but they tried to commemorate it just once every five years instead of every year in everybody who held the visuals like well then you have nothing to do with this and they kept showing up every year right right like what are you. GonNa do call the National Guard and remove US yeah. They went and deal in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. There were hundreds of arrests because has the university to bulldoze the place where it happened to build the gym that didn't happen and it took all the way up until nineteen ninety eight to keep cars from driving over the spots in the parking lot where the students were killed and then finally in the mid to thousands the university is finally reverses position and just kind of goes with the flow and in two thousand thirteen they opened a visitor center that is all about out commemorating this event as a historical event but also I get the impression from the the descriptions of the visitor center a Kenner the spiritual spiritual aspect of the spiritual aspect of tragedy that just last year wow now the university they say is the nation's leader in courses of nonviolence in democracy in peace studies in conflict resolution classes. Were all established so they you know we're trying to lead the way forward in at least being a symbol of you know peaceful protest right and people are still trying to figure out what happened. There's still lots. That's a debate Oliver Stone. unsurprisingly favors a theory that the government placed a sniper in these protests and that there were government government plant agitators who pushed the protests over the line. in this idea is supported by the fact that there were policies by a governors and the president to crack down on dissent on student anti war protests so there definitely was a policy that was like if you. WanNa get thirty we'll we'll we'll send goons to beat you up yeah but a lot of people think that the presence of a sniper's totally unsupported but then a cassette emerged fairly recently. H- An actual audio recording of that day that says supposedly you can hear the phrases get set point fire which means that this wasn't a surprise knee-jerk shooting that there was an officer commanding the guardsmen to shoot yet and it also you know with modern analysis. They think that there may have been a shots fired before full think seventy seconds before the guardsmen fired. There's a CA- state student named Terry Norman who is a photographer on campus taking pictures and he also had a hand gun a loaded handgun and he denied that he discharged it but he has been accused of triggering this by firing shots and I think they found evidence audio evidence that there were shots fired. They think it may be have been Terry Norman. Wow that kicked it all off and cume as carrying that around no I could not and then chuck this is a lot of people say that Kent State was the beginning of the slide toward Watergate for Nixon. This is like the beginning beginning of the end for him yeah and then I we should also talk about what happened at Jackson. State 'cause race relations in this country are so messed up yeah that everybody talks about Kent State where four white students died and no one talks about Jackson state which happened ten days later in two black elect people died black students yet and could have been a lot worse like they basically riddled a dormitory with a hail of gunfire yeah so ten days after Kent State State at Jackson State University in Mississippi they were also carrying out antiwar protests but there were also also protests based on racism as well and when the students were doing a lot of similar stuff a lot of the same stuff that was happening winning or head happened at Kent State. They they were riding. They had burned a building on campus down and when firefighters came out to put out the flames flames. They started to get worried that these protesters were going to harm them so they called the cops. The cops came out tried to disperse the crowd. The crowd didn't disperse they opened fire fire and like you said they riddled the building that served as the backdrop to this protest with bullets. Something like four hundred sixty rounds hit hit the building alone. There's no telling how many one on the sides or anything like that four hundred sixty rounds and he said every window was broken on every floor with bullet fire on the on a crowd of crowd of students and amazingly only two people died yeah Philip Gibbs he was a pre law major uh-huh and a father of an eighteen month son and James Green he was seventeen years old and he was a high school student walking home from his job at at the grocery store which again the fact that he's not involved in any way instill died makes it so much worse yet and this one also. I don't think we pointed out started out because is a misinformation. There was a rumor that the Mayor Mayor Charles Evers and his wife had been shot and killed assassinated basically oh yeah it's not true a relative of Mega Evers Verse Right Yeah he was his brother and so that's kind of what sparked everything in addition to like the antiwar protests right and.
"kent state" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Hey and welcome to the podcast? I'm Josh Clark in those Charles Chuck Bryant and there's Jerry and it's snowing outside which means that stuff. You should know snow condition snow addition. I know and we're like we go to record. Get Out of here because Atlanta snow kills us. I just mainly don't want to be locked away from the snow. No want to be able to look out the window and see it. I can't now but not as well as I like to for me. It's just a traffic thing like people are probably leaving work right now. People have already left office here well. Maybe everyone will be gone by the time I get out there. Okay you'll be the lone guy trudging through the snow right Vigo Mortenson in the road yes although he was not alone and there wasn't any snow just nuclear ash other there was because Charlie's there and kills herself by going out into the snow but that's before everything really a downward spoiler alert retroactive the spoiler alert Chuck Yep. Are you familiar with Kent State Yeah Man. I've been seeing that Neil young song all day. How can you not a you cannot by having never heard it like me. Shut up. You know that song never heard. I never listen to Neil Young. You've never heard the Song Ohio. No I know the pretenders pretenders Song Devout Kent State. I'm chocked okay. I mean you don't have young without like no. How's it go- hulme form now. I'M NOT GONNA. Maybe I have heard it. Ten soldiers and Nixon Coca Yeah Yeah. I didn't know that was about Ohio four dead in Ohio Okay and I I had no idea all right. I didn't know what that song was about. Just like Neil Young Really Oh man get ready to hear it. I'm sure it used to it by now. You're bulletproof well so you're familiar with the Kent State. Shootings sure may fourth nineteen seventy. four students were killed. I believe in other eleven were injured. Including one was paralyzed like some pretty severe injuries injuries and this is a big deal that would be a big deal in and of itself if it was just some sort of campus shooting or something like that like it'd be a very big deal the days but we made the Kent State shootings for those of you who aren't familiar with them. Such a enormous deal was that the shootings were carried out by national guardsmen yeah they were Americans Eric Firing on Americans Americans on one side of the equation firing on protesters on the other side it was one of the darkest points in American can history modern or otherwise yeah it was I think what's so upsetting. Is it was random it. Wasn't you know that guys coming at me with a bottle all or a brick shoot him. It was random shooting into a crowd. That's the kind of thing that would happen in countries under like dictatorships not here in America but it did happen here in America and not just at Kent State. There was another similar incident just ten days later that will talk about as well it gets it's overlooked but yeah it was very dark moment in American history and it came out of the the tensions over the Vietnam War initially I I think it was more than that. It was also we should say that's the kind of obvious thing that led to it yes but also there was a a real tension and also between the establishment and the anti-establishment yeah and the people in control and the people who are in control students elders. There's just a lot of tension between two sides in the dividing line. The obvious dividing line was the Vietnam War yeah in I think if you're not of that generation you may not know the full story. You might know that four people were shot in a protest and that's about it. Maybe even if you're from that generation. You may not know the full story story but we're about to tell you okay. Let's take back a little further nineteen seventy all right Vietnam a country which had won its independence independence from France in the fifties. Have you ever seen we were soldiers. He s with Mel Gibson. It's like a snuff film. It's one of the most graphically violent yeah movies I've ever seen in my life but it's about that transition from France leaving Vietnam and America coming in yeah go ahead well just initially serving as advisers right becoming embroiled in the war forgot all about that movie yeah you know an apocalypse now now there are some deleted scenes of the meeting up with a French family in Vietnam like having dinner really yeah. I remember when I heard about that. That was like what why the French and then I did a little more homework. Oh Oh yeah if you Vietnamese food very clearly like yeah influenced well. Most food is yeah sure so anyway in the fifties they split between communist North and non-communist South Vietnam and America didn't want communism spreading throughout Asia now we had a policy of containment yeah and so Richard Nixon when he won the the sixty eight election part of his promise was something called Vietnam as ation it's kind of an awkward word and that meant to transfer the combat duties from from our soldiers to the South Vietnamese. That sounds familiar doesn't it does but what what happened was at some point. He said you know what in nineteen seventy ebony in April he said I want to send our soldiers in Cambodia and that 'cause sort of a firestorm because it was a bit of a reversal of what he said he was going to do and it really embroil this in the middle of things well yeah he he escalated the war in Vietnam which is already a very contentious issue in it was a war but also as a war that Congress never openly declared war so that's a historically speaking. It's referred to Vietnam conflict right in so. Nixon gets elected partially because he's saying I'm going to get our boys out of there. Were Not GonNa let the Communist we're going to prop up the Vietnamese but we're going to get out of there and instead he escalates things by invading Cambodia where the Viet Cong. We're stationed in that lead to immediate protests that was April thirtieth nineteen seventy that he announced that we had invaded Cambodia yeah and the next day is when the first protest takes place at Kent State Yeah and Kent the article points out that it was not the most likely place because it was a little more blue collar than like say Ohio State nearby the Ohio State University and man and I'm sorry what is so stupid sorry. Osu alums and fans and students but it is stupid and everyone outside of Ohio state. It's stupid they take a lot of pride in that the I know which I think just kind of fans the flames of derision yeah I can just go start saying the University of Georgia. That makes a little more sense yeah. Mine was the difference the Ohio State University of the the University of Georgia it just it was the University of Ohio State. That would make more sense yeah a little more to me to my ear. I gotcha my ear right there. Yeah that's very nice. Thank you at any rate. can't say it was a little more blue collar. You wouldn't think there would be like protesting but there was protesting testing it schools all over the country and you can read between the lines here. Kent State had lower hippie population than Ohio state. Can we come right out and say it right but there were protests there there's a protests on May first and it was a standard war protests yeah three days before the shootings and it's GonNa win. Things got kicked off right right but these kids were still pretty good. They were at school holding a protest in the Commons. I believe which was the Aka the quad or like the big grassy area between between in the middle of campus and they said you know what this went pretty well. Let's take the weekend off in. We'll meet back here Monday and have another anti war protest because we're we're really steamed about. This and everyone said okay. Let's do that and for tonight. Let's go out and hit the bars in Kent. Yes what they did. The first one they buried the the constitution Russian as a symbolic gesture. Oh yeah the second one that got drunk right not at the protest and later that night right so that Friday protests is when they buried the constitution constitution. Yes this is like a real protests not just walking around. There's stuff going on. I think there's symbolic acts. It was a real protest yeah in if you combine alcohol. Kahal and protesting things might go rowdy so bonfires broke out they start throwing bottles at police cars breaking windows. It's for the little rowdy. I mean that's pretty that's a riot when you sit light bonfires in the streets and like throw bottles at police cars that you have just basically said. We've drawn a line in the sand. What are you GONNA do caps that is one way to look at it for sure. the Mayor Leroy Sam said this. This is an emergency situation people. I need to call the governor James Roads. We need some help. I'm GonNa close the bars which you know isn't GonNa make anyone very happy. No no and it had a an exacerbating affect apparently because that meant all the people who weren't riding in the streets were busy drinking in the bars or now suddenly in the streets three two and joined the protests and the AK the riots right that's right in the police were called in these tear gas and said go back to your dorm rooms basically get back on campus and that was Friday. Now we move onto Saturday. Yeah and there's obviously a little jumpy. He's hearing rumors circulating circulating that they're going to be another the scene from the night before is going to happen all over again on Saturday so he calls the governor of Ohio and and here enters the person who a my opinion is single handedly responsible for what happened at Kent State.

Former Steeler James Harrison says Antonio Brown is 'looking really selfish' after Raiders drama
"James harrison fifteen years in the n._f._l. Undrafted out of kent state cut by the ravens went overseas to the x._f._l. Europe and then became an absolute legend multiple super bowls multiple pro bowls defensive player of the year all time sack leader for pittsburgh at eighty and a half to pleasure to have you in. It's funny when you watch these camps and you see these you see a lot of stars that are drafted high and undrafted stars. You're a great picture of what the n._f._l. Is undrafted. You didn't never linear route and you end up being an absolute legend so i wanna talk about somebody who i think's a legendary talent antonio brown the helmet issue. I get it's equipment. What do you make though of a second grievance filed. I think it's time to to to let it go for me. I believe it comes down to him wanting to be right to win. <hes> i think since he got his way in pittsburgh he got out of there. He wanted to get out of there where he got to where he wanted to get. I'm feeling like this is maybe a situation where he wants to have it his way even if he wins which he won't. You're gonna get your helmet for another year at best but you won't win that because the c._b._a. Says that anything that roger goodell feels like he wants to to do.

Cleveland Browns quarterbacks have refuge in training camp RV
"Lewis and Logan show The Browns are on. Hard knocks this season And it looks like. Baker Mayfield a rookie quarterback has an RV Training camp and the RV would be considered part of. His home, so he, can go in. There and escape the cameras interesting concept smart idea very smart idea I like that The, the, training Berea Ohio. That. Is correct? Yeah where's that It's it is. South, of downtown. Cleveland down seventy one south they hadn't, Columbus yeah but not but. Not, nearly that. That. Far, south it's, a, suburb of Cleveland oh it, is okay. Yeah Middleburg heights, Berea Strong's Bill that that area nice area. When you played Where'd you guys trae reinstate a, Berea Berea now we trained to Ken state of training camp but we are are home, during, the, regular season was. At. That facility Okay All. Right. Yeah Oh they're having training, camp there now that's the difference when? You were there attorney camp was, at. Kent state correct and a lot of teams practice at colleges back like the Broncos practice UNC and and, even before that if we're couns gotta be much better having training camp at, your home facility it's a lot easier for the players stay in a dorm room and you still stay in hotel room some of. The single guys but I mean you have much easier access. To your. Family Right Training camp back in the. Day you were so secluded in training camp went six. Weeks It was it was. A marathon today's in both practices in full pads, in, a lot of times full go so you think about how they. Treat players now I'm I'm happy for the players just a couple of minutes ago here what do you think about what Jerry Jones has been saying about the the anthem Yeah I find the way the NFL told him to stop. Talking about it has worked and now his son, is, is talking about a two are the I think it is Jerry. Jones way honestly of sending a message to Roger Goodell this is my idea that You know, you may have beat me in terms of me trying to get rid of you because. I did I tried to get rid of you, as the, Commissioner the league other owners said that's not. Going to happen Jerry stand down so I, did and it, cost me but I'm still not in your camp and I'll speak my mind whatever I want to and if you. Want to do something about it especially publicly let's have at, it because now he's not Jerry Jones is taking a very popular sites certainly in Dallas certainly the state of Texas because I. Would say the overwhelming majority of people there want the players to stand up so. He's, he's playing to me playing to the home crowd but it just illustrates the issues the league will have and trying to. Come up with some sort of resolution? To, this thing I don't know what that's going to be in a satisfactory way for. Either side yeah it looks like a mess that they just can't, figure out how to get out of, a couple of other football notes NFL related. The San Diego now sandy Geico the LA. Chargers, of had a couple of key injuries already Jason Brits down for the year and hunter Henry down for the year down. For the lost another tight. In, yesterday Thank backup down for. The year as well So chargers in, just a couple of days, of, practice, already, some holes. In the lineup goodness Virgil green you, don't you don't want to see anybody hurt but you would think that. May help his cause he's? With the chargers. Did they. Bring gates back not not yet not yet. Not yet to think he's probably coming back You know that Philip rivers wants him so Yeah And speaking of old players may become a, back Matt Holliday sign Matt Holliday to a minor, league delete thirty. Eight What where that's, going maybe, they want him to retire Iraq I don't know no I don't. Think it's that high I think the you know whether he's convinced them or whether he didn't have to convince them but I, think both sides have. An interest in, seeing, really what you have left in the tank. Sort of as a pinch hitter sort of role I don't know, Matt Matt had big years when he left here, he went to Oakland initially and that he went to say Lewis and he put a big numbers for the, car but I don't know what he has left, at thirty eight Josh Fogg former Rockies pitcher tweeted, today about that like hey I could probably throw, an inning Rockies if you wanna bring me back to yeah I don't know how will Josh Fogg is now but I did similar age did tweet out to the Cleveland. Browns hey you know I. Can run. A hitch, pattern and you don't have anybody. In the team that has better hands than I do now so that is very true. Damn straight you know you're going to catch the ball I, just can't get away from anybody anymore and you. Don't, wanna, take that big hit not really looking to take a little hit at this. Point On a little hill so Matt, Holliday almost a career three hundred hitter has over three hundred home, runs, over twelve, hundred RBI in over two thousand hits he's been a really I mean if it ended today he would have a really. Productive major league baseball career. That kid. I remember, seeing him in learning of him. When he was a quarterback in high school in Stillwater in fact he played for his. Dad and I think he went to the elite eleven camp Talent playing, quarterback and obviously picked the right career because look how long he's. Lasted make more money in baseball he's healthier that's for sure at thirty eight is still trying to. To play, baseball and we'll see how, that goes for him speaking of the Rockies Rockies tonight Against the cardinals Rockies are a game out of first. Place behind the dodgers in his hot is the Rockies have been the dodgers of injustice hot and the. Diamondbacks to they're, all three, of. Those, hanging hanging, right in their D-Backs a half game out Rockies are, one game out Rockies nineteen and five since. June twenty eighth, this is one of the best. Runs.
