"Of statements. Here's a statement the arizona cardinals play just about the most exciting games. You could. You could have this one. With the vikings thirty four thirty-three off the rails another bonkers game for tyler murray who making use case or with the guys we just talked about most exciting player gave but minnesota had older on the foot of greg joseph before leaks wide israel. What's the statement from this one. Very similar to what the raven statement is is. We've got a quarterback that's going to keep us in or let us win every single game because everything else is pretty confusing. Last week against travis. Henry basically didn't let him do anything on the ground this week against dow cook. Let them run all over. The place dare camera. Excuse me and obviously with the late field goal that the minnesota vikings should have gotten there. You're looking at this entirely differently if they make that and just a little note here kirk cousins. Technically technically outplayed. Cuyler mary here if you look at. Qbr and rating but obviously column is going to keep you in any game. It just makes me wonder just like that chiefs defense. Is this cardinals defense. Good or his tyler moore. You're going to have to do this all the time on his way to winning. Mvp kevin blackstone statement from yesterday afternoon last season. The cardinals came up a little bit short right and now they've won a game that they shouldn't have won. That should've that was a thirty seven year old field goal. You consider that a chip shot in the nfl. But now they've gone to two and oh so you look around the league teams to and no one you look at the percentages that teams who are to anno- since two thousand get to the playoffs extremely high so that's the way they've got to be thinking about themselves right now and is absolutely right. I mean you. Look at colin murray. We saw what he could do last year. Now you're seeing even more three times right outside of the pocket hitting for scores. Did that five times all of a year ago. The guy is getting better. And that's gotta be scary. Repeat that stack so in two games. He has three touchdowns hitting guys when he's outside of the pocket. And how many did he have last year. Five that's what the steps that doesn't that doesn't really compute to me. They are tuna last year kevin blackstone and miss the playoffs. We'll go to pablo tori now on. Israel's said that kirk cousins technically played better than kyle. Murray i'm gonna do my own research on that tony. I'm gonna go find the fact independently. I think on that subject but beyond that the fact is tyler murray is doing stuff right. That looks chaotic. He is scrambling around his running backwards on a fourth down and he heaves it up there but the reality is this is planned. And it's not as improvised as it looks. They know what they're doing him. Christian kirk have his bond through two weeks very clearly where they know exactly where they need to be that was a cover zero blitz. They read perfectly. So as much as tyler. Mary feels like the human joystick. And i totally get it. He's so fun to watch. He's he's under far more control. I think than we may realize. Dunno tony that. Play that pablo's alluding to that. We saw the video of kirk. I mean when you think about the the skill that it takes to to get that pass off off his back leg right throwing it. Basically across his body practically as he's lobbing it up and getting it on the money. Like i know kirk to stop for a second to try to get that thing. But considering the pass rush he was facing. That just goes to show you the growth that kyle murray has had for one year to the next because he was fantastic last year. He's even better now. And i think because of his growth this arizona cardinals team. Maybe a team that could get into the playoffs despite katie's floor to stat earlier before we sit down. You had a real problem mike zimmer. In the way they approach that field goal from thirty seven yards. I mean dude you thirty five seconds left. You could have ran a couple more place. Get your kicker closer. We've seen kickers. Miss extra points including one intended tennessee in seattle in tennessee seattle game. So that's not a gimme third. Because i love with the dallas cowboys. Did at the mike mccartney say rotate.

It should be women should know they're attracted you know. I follow lindsay on on Anthony lindsey baseball on instagram. Follow you on instagram. And i will say hopefully doesn't offend you you are.

Wouldn't they get more criticism for that than than what. I intended it to be. Which was a compliment to jackie. I think so because especially a word like great that could mean anything like she looks great as in like she's doing a good job on tv you know i think the blowback would be. Why aren't you writing that about kevin blackstone. Who's on the panel with jackie. You just wrote that. Because she's a woman. But i like i sent me. I sent them mcmanamon attacks yesterday. Mcmanamon was wearing all black. Yeah okay and. He was in phoenix for the finals. So i sent dave. This was private. I sent him a text. I didn't tweet it. But i wrote to him going all black including a sports coat in one hundred and ten degree heat is a baller. Move way to go now. If i wrote that about a woman. I'd probably get hammered. I i was like you know. It's so weird these standards. Now that i don't. I don't know where the line is. Well nobody i think nobody. We're all kind of feeling it out because the woke stirs are are everywhere right and and this one is just way way crazy that you're not allowed to say somebody's pretty when you see them on. Tv apparently not apparently not at least according to her. I are by the way they'd be different. I mean there's so many levels to this would it be different if you because you're you're out.

Serena Williams, Martina And Kevin Blackstone discussed on Around the Horn

"What a win mean gene for Serena Williams Kevin Blackstone wow more accolades Serena Williams. I mean it's just unbelievable that she just continues to dominate her sport. Now at thirty seven years old will be the oldest woman ever to be in a major slam final s remarkable that she's come back from her pregnancy giving birth having a life threatening situation in terms of giving birth and not only that I think really really cool thing is we started out this tournament talking about cocoa golf who by the way talks about her her mentors or her her idols being Serena Williams and Venus Williams and the fact that she looked up to him and said that when she beat Venus that's the only time she's ever cried in a met so you're not gonna see her greatness but you also see early Greg I sold as it would say Wimbledon. Miss Williams is dominant. She's all the way back. She's made it to a vinyl since giving birth but she's she's is in better shape right now in today's match she she won all but three points off of her first serves. She's getting her per serving and if you're not getting yours in it is over because she's going to jump all over that this is dominant as she is looked in about five years. It's going to be very difficult to beat. What's amazing is after all this time? She's the greatest ever she's still the best women's player on the tour. That's what's remarkable. Bob Ryan with all due respect to Martina. I don't think there's much doubt any longer who is the women's Tennis S. and Franken Serena Williams. She is at such as level now going doing what she's doing and commanding attention that she's commanding for all of us that you're going to be. We're not we're getting real close to the following. What was the name sister? They were hers again. You know we're almost there and I mean she's setting yourself apart that that is an incredible statement. I just made but I'm standing on your steady gone so you think she's left Venus so far behind we can just let's not let's be Venus behind. She's hid has had an incredible incredible career but we're talking about Serena here Clinton Yates and specifically coming back after the pregnancy last year the life threatening condition during the pregnancy last year. She didn't get the winds in those finals last year. How important what is it for her to finish the deal this year I think is relatively important but I think what all this shows that she's doing this for one reason now reason that's important which is for her? I think for a black woman in a position she's been in a leadership when she's been in such a spotlight is also very very difficult for people to realize that this on the human individual. Let's not forget what happened in that final. She cried on the court in front of the world. It was something that was a very emotionally riveting moment

"Brought to you by shakes coming to you from the seaport district Pierce seventeen. I would fade old on your your nuggets. One twenty-one. What's thirteen Denver over Portland? That's just when you thought we were done talking about players talking about referees. Blazers are unhappy here. You'll catch thirty seven nine six. He's averaging twenty five twelve nine this postseason. What is the lesson? You learned from game one drove. Well, you gotta add three steals to block shots, which makes him only two third NBA player in history. Let me give you a couple of names, Dr Chait and LeBron James he's never going to be confused for those guys. But he they can't figure out how to stop it the way you play. I don't want to give you blazers. Something is that you played straight up because what you leave play. You're gonna get the past anybody think would he fades just gave the please your something? And if he did in fact did what he and this is the reason why the blazers beat the nuggets. The series. You're going to be hearing it from your your your readers move on Phil. Keller show. Go jackson. Terry Stotts is going to be so grateful. Series. My favorite thing about Denver is just now people are watching them play, and the realizing that Yokich is in fact, the best point guard in the league. That's where he spends all his time out of the top of the key. And it is tough fade. I don't know what's left to say after when he's chalk talk. But I guess I will add this much that the blazers need not worry about complaining about the rest not play so sloppy and think about putting someone other than his cancer on Yokich because it doesn't seem like he's the right man for the job offensively. Great defensively, not so much which is going to be a conundrum series would a store for the nuggets as young as they are where they were last year and really everybody doubted that they were a number two seed in the west until you see them play. Now Yokich is a real almost sounds like you're speaking from experience here Kevin Blackstone in downing the nuggets all season long. Yes, we'll move by yourself to quote, I think sometimes adjustments and all those things are actually somewhat overrated. Mike wooden holes or Celtics books..

"Port district here seventeen. Another reason why we bowed before Damian Lillard and Liotta laugh in the face of the first games last night. We're bringing beatdown it was eighteen to three and what twenty three to two in the other. Magic. Nets peace in the Middle East now Toronto and Philly and all that gravy, you guys. Call it sauce. We call the gravy in round two Bill Blass who showed you more in dismantling last night was in better position going into this series. I think it's Philly. Finally there revamp starting lineup playing together. Finally, Butler fits finally Tobias Harris fits the outskirts, then that's one forty one to seventy when the starting five was on the floor in the Billy. Would he page? With philadelphia. Also prior to the playoffs. They're starting lineup. It only been together for ten games. They're still developing that talked about that last night. They're coming together as a team, and we saw that after they were challenged early by the nets and some people in his panel will wrong about how they. Better every some people who live on the coast about you, Kevin Blackstone. They've gotta find starting five, but their problem going up against the raptors their lack of bench is going to show out there when you got a Bacha Norman Powell vanfleet coming off the bench for the raptors. They've got a lot more lean on. And also just the fact that Kawai lynyrd that's killed in Simmons issues. Boy, Frank, I still have. I was at that beat down Philadelphia. I do think that the nets kind of health galvanized to Philadelphia seventy six, but Kevin mentioned the name Leonard. Leonard is thirteen lifetime against the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers. He played nine games last year with San Antonio fell off the map looks like the superstar player again Toronto's information from Frank they'll giving Kevin credit for coming with the name quite letter might be a little bit much. Josh. For that. Let's move on buyer sell to nuggets one away. Spurs ninety just a glimpse of knowing what we can do. That's what Jamal Murray said just a glimpse of what plash key can be getting later on this points for this one right last night. What he your nuggets or the eighth youngest team in playoff history. They still need to go to the coast San Antonio to win this one. But what do they show you? Of telling his last night that he wasn't Bobby Fisher. And he coached more like Jeff Fisher with the Rams the point. Is that Malone has been better this more superior coach in the series? He made the move and took bar out of lineup and made him a six man in Craig gave more defense put Harrison white. They're totally out playing out strategizing, Popovich and scary. Well, the far more efficient. I know that in replays showed or what I'm talking about. All those passing all the assisted. They had the fact that they can get multiple people in double figures to be threats all over the floor and not just have to rely on mammary. That's the difference. And that's why I saw. Mike malone. Roll the dice after game three call that his team was calling out Yokich Jamal Murray. Both of them responded. They have the lead. But you know, what's going to happen? San Antonio's winning at home that's going to go back to Denver. Woody. Make sure you're at that game. So plash. Dantonio is not gonna win at home Denver's won out Yokich was playing tremendously they hit after many weapons again Popovich ran out of moves. And he admitted it how many times a team so versatile. They make pop run out of ideas. The nuggets you're gonna go ahead and make a chip Fisher with the Rams reference what he page tell me it's going to matter game seven nine. That's that's where this series will be what we'll move up. Fill three seven to Swedish words in the English language, if it's like, San Jose in Vegas, baby. Not so like Boston Toronto. But here we go. Kevin Blackstone, your chance push the break canes have had an entire year of awesome bunch of jerk extracurriculars who you got tonight. And why and how you know what's for the last few years? We we start talking in detail playoff and someone says home ice advantage. You say. Everything. The home team is one. And that's what's going to happen here guy Sola. Sola? Yeah. And the Cavs outscored them fourteen to five at home. This is the.

It a statement game. Cappella dead, Tony scoff at that Clinton by herself sell that being statement game. I'm selling this in terms of the rockets. I don't understand why they're taking this so poorly. It's a sign of respect you dominated the warriors. The last two season. It should be a statement game. There are more said the entire purpose of the team was to beat the warriors. You are independent of power. I don't understand what they're doing at. All.

Well, I love me statement game a wing tonight when I got nothing else to do. But this is not a statement game for the wars or playing without Durant. They should have made a statement against Phoenix as Dame Tony said they're going to Houston Houston one nine in a row. They're about to pass the nuggets, and they might actually. Catch the warriors. If the war is don't watch. I don't see a statement tonight. I don't know. What a statement game is anymore. We dismissed the gun zag say Mary's as a statement game. Then why wouldn't this be a statement? The warriors part of go. There's a difference team playing in their conference championship days before the March man is selected Sunday. March game in the NBA, but your rockets at Reno against the warriors this year and everybody wants to sit we would happen in the Western Conference finals last year until Chris Paul got hurt. And that's and that's how the warriors advanced what he paid. Kevin Blackstone thick and a seat to watch Clinton gates in that very numbly sweater and Frank lifestyle.

The the thing is mounting mounting and nothing and I did like about last night's game. In this world of three point mania is that he had fifteen quote unquote blow buys fifteen times taking it to. He was eighteen eighteen from the free throw line. I you can't ignore. And also, oh, by the way, tennis. This is not this the third time. I think he's had fifty tennis says I mean, you can't ignore it. You have to give them do. I'm giving you you do James harden you being in the store. There was chuckling chortling when I've exam Maury called him the most dominant offensive player, or at least maybe dominant wasn't the word. But you can correct me if I'm wrong there. Bob, do you give that more credence now? You have to acknowledge the numbers are there. The numbers are there and he's doing with Jordan dead weight. Now, he's I'm not saying he's Michael Jordan for a career. I'm not saying, I wouldn't take Michael Jordan. I would of course. But my God. I mean, how can you best offensive player of all times, our Lord, that's we laughed about that a few months ago. Now, he's putting up the seasoning similar to Jordan did thirty one years ago. And this is a little bit awkward. We're going to Kevin Blackstone who has a beard as well. Bob. Hope you're okay with that. Go ahead. Katie. The beer don't always fear the beard. Remember that you know, what he having a year that you as Bob said, you cannot ignore. And the fact that he's doing it as a complete basketball player will leave the defensive part out of it for right now. But a complete basketball player in the offense of part of the court his team falls behind. He brings them back to victory. He hits the big shot. He gets to the free throw line. He hits the three pointers. He makes the assist. This is this is not something we expected to see from him. Remember, he got there as a two guard. And now he's had to play a lot of one and he is excelling at that as well. So I don't see how you can ignore this guy when it comes to the MVP and Keller Shaw the numbers are historic. I mean, you can't deny that. But I can't get past the volume of shots. And that's what creates all of this. You have to remember. He's a thirty six percent three point shooter this year barely over the league. Average, Paul George suits forties. Steph curry shoots forty four. Those are enormous differences. If that was on base percentage slugging percentage, we'd make a big deal out of that. But we just in basketball. We look at the total points thirty six a night. He's got to be the MVP in my mind..

"I did not win which means it's rigged. Anytime. I don't see you or Kevin Blackstone win. I feel. Shoot up. The showdown good enough. But we talked about the Lakers, and what we like to do on the show. Sometimes it's been called after the horn where we let you chime in his war and additional panelist on the show. Here we go you've already gone around the horn. But what happens after the horn find out now on Spain? And fits the losses are getting bigger. And the trade demands are getting an 'Arge or Sarah. What did you learn last night about Lakers? Well, we've learned over the last couple of days that they never saw swingers. You don't just keep leaving you have to at some point get called back. Otherwise, you're just making deals against yourself. As for last night. I mean, if you want to try to convince the pelicans or any other team that the pieces besides LeBron James on the Lakers are worth getting they might want to do better than getting blown out by a team without Ola depot. That's on the second night of a back to back because LeBron as one piece and everybody else over here getting heckled. This is looking uglier and uglier for the late one deduction. We are now calling the back. Back Fronta back on around the horn, we go Israel Gutierrez. How about you? I can't help. But think of last year I was at a game in Cleveland. And it was just when everything looked incredibly messy it with clear. Lebron didn't want is Ahah Thomas as a teammate. And he just wasn't saying anything in time outs and was just sitting there, and I thought to myself, well, this has to change. There's no way they can finish the season with this group of people and what they do they made those changes they made the finals at cetera. This Lakers group has to change by the trade deadline, and if this Anthony Davis thing doesn't happen that I don't know what Magic Johnson's going to do to be able to salvage this season. Because then it's just on the brawn and these guys that he didn't even want around to make the playoffs because if you don't make the playoffs what makes them attractive to free agents going forward. This just looks like it could get really messy. They put all their eggs think Israel, something has to happen in the next twenty two hours. You cannot go forward with this roster. You've destroyed the cod young players, Bob. I was looking at your face when Israel said that and to use one of your words. I've got smacked judge smacked, please go ahead. The floor is yours. Here's the easiest way. I can describe this. You know, sometimes you go to a party, and of course, extensively it's happening in the living room. But by the end of the party, all the cool kids are in the kitchen because that's where the dope stuff is going on. That is what we saw last night, and they all sort of venture moved away in the Bronx just sitting there kind of like nobody wants to join me that aside what we've gotta realize what the scenario right now is then maybe this is a dirty little secret. This was just a bad idea. Trying to get LeBron in LA and get all these kids wasn't going to work out because of the stage he's into this career. He's missing all these games. All those kids that they have. I haven't been able to develop the way they wanted to might not have been so smart. All right jump in. All right..

You know, Michael Jordan could have done that hit that shot against Utah Jazz. He retired from moment came back with the wizards. No offense. Kevin think when people think about Michael, Jordan. They don't think about that time with the wizards. They still think about that last shocker here over Brian Russell when he probably pushed. There's a horn.

Jason Garrett game gets you twenty six seven this year, Alvin Kamara Zeke Elliott saquon Barkley Mike Evans, play defense. Jalen Ramsey played offense scored the last touch out of the game, Jason Witten broke a trophy. Does it all and up to something? Good or something. Well, it adds up to something that people want to watch over a million people that's more than some playoff games. In other sports. There's still a strong appetite for this even though it's not particularly good football. Now, it'll never be good football because of the nature of the game. Which is why I think they should focus on elevating the skills competitions making them more like NBA dunk contests. Something people really want to watch. If you put it official NFL light in your refrigerator three million people would stay for three. No sense whatsoever. Stick a fork into Pro Bowl, it's done. Do you want to have an event have those guys come over from the senior bowl two week before then play against did if L pro bowlers that would be worth one.

"Welcome back around the horn coming to you from the river decades. Pier. Seventeen. Buy or sell time with ice and stone in the lead show. Mr. Bob, Ryan, some work to do. Here's by herself one Jon Gruden senior bowl really talking. Kyla Murray and talking whether size matters for quarterbacks anymore. They come in all shapes and sizes nowadays. Usa matter lot. Now doesn't matter so much tip. You believe collar Murray's an object of affection. Do you believe he could go for Murray? And what does he do with? I think they definitely could those three picks, you know, the Cowboys embarassed picks turned out to be pretty low. But they also have the fourth big. And I think Mario goes somewhere in the top ten teams are going to fall in love with him that's becoming more like the college game. And they save a lot of money if they got their car. So you think that's a possibility? This is about Cuyler Murray here Kevin Blackstone, you'd think the raiders can go for pilot Murray. Absolutely. For one thing. We know that gruden's been divorcing himself from David Carr ever since training camp, every you know, with this guy, Derek Carr, and you know, with this guy out there looking great as does Murray. You gotta go for you got draft picks. You gotta get a quarterback go for the best one. Three the first thirty six picks you mentioned car they released by June. First they save fifty million dollars. I thought it was interesting that Gruden mentioned the names drew Brees. Also, Russell Wilson Murray a little bit smaller than that's what we concern me five. He's five nine. I dunno. Can you win the Super Bowl or the five nine Jon Gruden says size? Doesn't matter as much as it used to or at all anymore. Bob. Well, number one, let's measure him. I then we'll see you the professionals who still talking to same way. But anyway, I think that yes, they could see him doing this. If he falls in love with with Mary, and the model would be Wilson, I think wouldn't breeze because of the mobility factor s option thing, I think that's where he puts into the modern before he said, it doesn't matter as much anymore. They come in all shapes and sizes, they always came in no shapes it size. And if you're learning more who's in the baby that whole QB quarterback camp that he ran maybe everything he was saying there was by ourselves over your jurisdiction Cal show. Veasley tweets the front office pushes who they want to get the ball to. I haven't been in a huge priority in that regard. So maybe more come my way in the two minutes. Nothing is planned. Kaby fire self. I got to sell this. I mean, I don't know what he's talking about. First of all, they got a guy named Cooper their. Now's a pretty good wide receivers that's gonna take some pitches and catches away from you. Anyway. And why are you going after the front office coaching staff sold? I I agree with Kevin you get the, you know, the combination of that diva position the NFL wide receiver and social media. Those are things you say, maybe your family members your agent in private to the coaches. I don't know if you go on social media and let every now. Flies to slot receiver. I don't think I'd thought about that one before how about you about right? I think the guy maybe knows something that we don't know these something we've got the cowboy Allah just over there. We'll be able to enlighten us. But I think there may be something to this. And then we team operates differently than now. We turn to that cowboy allergists as you said, Bob, Tim, you hear him say the front office is making the call here. But that means Jerry that means Stephen Jones, what do you think of that? That's why I've got to stand firmly on the fence on this when Tony. Sixty five passes. That's a lot for a slot receiver by what he said regarding where the power is in this organization, and the fact that the head coach doesn't always seem to be calling the shots. We'll move on by herself wreath Duke beat pick last night eight Zion Zion. As is want to do and Jay z. There took it all is he found a rock nation. Frank solar, you pick this trip was business or pleasure. I think every time JC shows up someplace it's about business. But I also think Zion Williamson is a guy that people wanna see play..

"It's interesting that you know. Colleges tend to look at those sports differently. But the other point about the differences is that there are two types of sports on a college campus, they're generating revenue generating sports, basketball, and football, and their expenditure sports, which is everything else and those two revenue generating sports pay for the existence of those other sports and those revenue generating sports are predominated by black males, Shaun Harper. Who's now at USC did a brilliant study that which he updates from time to time when he was at UPN, which pointed out just underscored for everyone that less than three percent of all graduates on major college campuses are black males yet they make up fifty and sixty percent of those two revenue generating sports, which means back Ladimir point that the primary reason that they're on a college campus in the first place is not to be educated, but to generate revenues via athletics for those unit. You know, we've just got less than a minute to go here. And I know we've focused on the NCW and this last half of the conversation because obviously it's a huge issue. But but Kevin we started by talking about, you know, the NBA WNBA, we should've mentioned the NFL as well. I mean, these are huge or powerful rich organizations. I mean, don't you think that we're gonna see pushback from the organizations as well. Oh, there's there's no question ever since the eight mid eighteen eighties. When John Montgomery ward. As a baseball player tried to organize his his brethren to fight against ownership in management for for better treatment, we've been dealing with this and the WNBA is a players associates is going to be in a fight. We're going to have the NFL agreement expires soon. They're going to be in a fife everyone's going to be pushing back because this is a fight over dollars.

"How often do people lie on dating apps in a robots taking over our jobs? I'm Cardiff Garcia co host a planet. Money's the indicator. Where everyday we tell you a short story about the economy get it on NPR one or wherever you get your podcasts. This is on point a Meghna, doctor Bardi, we're talking with our with Kevin Blackstone, and Robert Keough about this idea of athletes pushing back against what they see as exploitation from major organizations like the NC double A or big sports leagues that they play four and Robert Keough pick up your thought that you were beginning with before the break here about wanting to reframe this entire notion of within the NC double A, whether or not athletes are exploited. Sure. Yeah. And I want to do so by fully agreeing with Kevin's concern that athletes take charge of their life and fully embody their sense of person, hood and agent. See I mean, I'm I'm all for players getting the best and best deal the best and bet, you know, better invest opportunity for their life. But I think as was raised earlier in the discussion their ways in which this conversation can get muddied when we use words lake collusion. I mean, Kevin brought up the possibility of collusion between the college in the NBA with the one and done rule. I think the one and done rule is is a real mess. But it's also a rule that's principally enforced by the NBA players association. And so in effect what you have is a labor union who would rather not compete against seventeen year old or eighteen year old athletes for a spot on a team. If you're nearing the end of your career, and you see the opportunity to make even if you're at league minimum in the NBA your salary increases every year. And that's that's a lot to be looking at losing to somebody who might come in an organization could say we can pay them. Half or or considerably less and and take a risk on their future. And so I just think it's important to establish some clarity on these things because where? The the system in many ways is broken and various systems or broken. I think in our athletic and physical culture from youth all the way up to the pros. I think it's really important to establish where and how it's broken and then not necessarily capitulate to the broken nests. But to find a real concrete solutions to the problems. Well, let me get Kevin Blackstone responses that what do you think? Kevin. No, I agree with that the collusion that I speak of isn't necessarily the NBA in college officials being together in a dark room over this issue Roberts heavily right? The w the the NBA players association is protecting its its membership behind this rule by keeping out restricting potential new labor class, however colleges also benefit gr-. Greatly from this and are less likely to fight back because they get this high school superstar talent like Zion Williamson right now who's the highlight reel for ESPN every day at as a freshman at Duke to to to promote their product with. So that's the sort of collusion that that I'm talking about this is this is something that both sides see as good for them. And in the middle, of course, the teenage athletes get squeeze well. You know, I want to talk for second about collegiate athletes as well here. So let me just play some tape. This is you're gonna about you're gonna hear Shabazz Napier who now plays for the NBA's Brooklyn nets in two thousand fourteen he was yukons point guard, and he told reporters he didn't always have money for food. I don't see myself as so much of employees..

I said, would you mind if I give the dogs little piece of cracker with some hot sauce on and without and see what they choose hidden brain, a spicy podcast about science psychology. And why people do what they do. This is on point a mega truck Roberta. We're talking this hour about athletes, and perhaps more of them taking agency over their own value in the context of the leagues that they they play in and whether or not this could be a disruptive trend in sports, Kevin Blackstone, who's an ESPN panelists and professor sports journalism at the university of Maryland has written about this. And he says it could be disruptive. He's with us from Washington and before the break, Kevin, and I were talking about a high school sports, and how we we've got a handful of very talented high school players such as Darius Baizley who are going their own way rather than playing for a year in the NC double A, and then going to the NBA. So let's look over to the w NBA now because the WNBA players union has opted out of its collective bargaining agreement because of over revenue sharing pay equity and transparency issues. So for example, let's listen to Los Angeles sparks star and WNBA players association. The president's Neka Agoo McKay, she appeared on ESPN in November to talk about why they're opting out of their contract with the NBA for us. It's about the overall player experience the game isn't a game without us and foundationally I think we can work together with the league to create some infrastructural changes now really enhance both the player experience and the game. We'll joining us. Now is Terry Jackson. She's with us from New York. She's executive director of the WNBA players association. Former director of law policy and governance.

"He also writes sports commentary for the Washington Post, Kevin Blackstone. Welcome back to one point for you. So you are definitely the inspiration for this hour. I have to say because at the tail end of last year, we caught your sort of prediction for twenty nineteen that you wrote in the Washington Post, and I have to say most of the time kind of like, yeah, I'm not sure how much stock to put into predicts with especially in this day and age, but you wrote this very provocative couple of paragraphs where you say that could there be a r-. Rise in the number of athletes or associations that are pushing back against being exploited by leagues and teams. What do you mean? Well, I just think that collectively athletic talent is starting to understand their own agency and their own power. And the amazing thing is that that's always been the case with the professional ranks, and it slowly has become the case with a college athletes. But now you start to see a drifting down to high school athletes, and one of the reasons, of course, for all of this is the amount of money that is involved in all these sports. And when you think about high school, you say, well, it's not much money in high schools, but in fact, over the past few years, there's been more and more as shoe companies like Under Armour and Nike have invested in in. In high school sports as a high school sports leagues have have cut contract deals to be televised on places like ESPN. And then as those athletes have been shopped around to colleges for more and more money. You kind of understand how people start to take a step back and understand their role as cogs in this college athletic industrial complex. So I think because of that and because of what the examples that have been set by some others in previous years. I just see this becoming more and more of a conflict, right? More more of a struggle as these athletes start to to coalesce and fight for what they believe is there's against ownership and management. So so you mentioned high school athletes, and we played that little bit of. Tape from Darius bays lease agent. Just a second ago. I want to hear more about Bazeley story. So in October Bazeley agent Rich Paul told ESPN that Darius was going to forego college. And instead take a one million dollar internship. I mean, you were talking about shoo Comey's before he's taking this one million dollar internship with new balance. So let's listen to a little bit of that. We're talking about a system here and has been broken for a long time and these kids and the families need option, and for me, I come from the athlete side where I'm always trying to find out. How do I do was best for the athlete not necessarily from me per se? And so, you know, the the comments are, you know, again, he's part of a system. Part of a system that they've been able to control for a long time. That's Rich, Paul. Darius bays lease agent. First of all tells Kevin tell us more about Darius himself. Who is he obviously, he's a basketball finorm, right? He's a he's he's one of a number of of high school aged basketball fee noms in this country who was being recruited by all manner of of colleges in the country. He was the number thirteen prospect on ESPN's twenty eighteen recruiting lists. He had originally said that he was going to play for coach Jim boeheim at Syracuse. And then he said in March that he was going to instead play for the NBA's minor league system known as the G league. And the G league recently announced that it was going to increase it salary for. It's most marketable talent. Like, maybe a Beasley to one hundred twenty five thousand dollars, and then a little bit later he came out with Chris with Paul who happens to be a LeBron James agent and said that they were working on this new deal where he would actually be an intern for new balanced train for a year and then declare for. For the NBA draft in twenty nineteen. And remember there is a rule between or a collusion between colleges in the NBA which says that a player has to be of.

"You're right and high with two points. I did take those points back tried to get out your door that commercial break. Tim Keller show the last night, tectonically shift to college football landscape. This was a seismic shift. Tony we've spent years exalting saving exalting, Alabama, rightfully so as the greatest of this era, and maybe the greatest of all time with those five championships they've put together. But now you kind of step back and look at the last four years to national titles for Alabama to for Clemson fifty five wins for both teams in that time. And Clemson with the just the thrashing last night. You look at the youth on that team. You look at the fact they play in the ACC which is sorry easier to win than the SEC west.

I would say it's a shift to the only other option we knew it could possibly be which is Clemson beyond that what we got to see was a culture situation from Ned team from Davo that is actually somewhat likable. You don't have some guy scowling around the sidelines making everybody feel like they're barely worthy of his presence. Davos, the guy who apparently have fun even though I don't agree with. Every single thing. He does he handled the Kelly Bryant situation. Well, when it comes to the transfer of that versus Jalen hopes hers dabbled to me just looks like a guy who makes college football fund in any way that coach can was way different situation. You would call it a cultural shift to the landscape of college football, very interesting. Kevin blackstone. Well, this is just merely a pendulum swing. I mean, I think I think Tim touched on it. They have gone back and forth with this championship trophy each of the last four years, which is why I wanna see a fifth in rubber Mets and see who really is the king of college football in this new era. But this just meant that, you know, for this particular night that Clemson got the best of them. They got the best one particular on defense on still waiting to see Alabama's offense do something in in the last forty four minutes of a game. That was unbelievable. But you know, what they've also made a shift in terms of talent Justin was stolen, right? I Alabama is knows in Alabama. When the few times that a top rank play. Has gone from Alabama to pause for a second. Kevin Blackstone said just this particular night. It sounds like you're saying this is just one night and one game Frank. How do you respond to that? I think the ship probably happened when they won their first national championship under Davidge Sweeney. And maybe we didn't acknowledge it enough because really Alabama has dominated college football. But like to mention both teams after four years fifty five and four and when Clinton talks about the cultural change when Alabama loses it's a lot like New England losing well their way of doing it. That's over with was Alabama their players having fun when they won the last two national championships. This is one game. We tend to be the prisoner of the moment here, Clemson is outstanding Alabama ally show wants back in please go ahead. Yeah. I mean, I just look at these last three the three times they played for the national title over the last four years to Shawn Watson and Lawrence averaged more than four hundred yards passing and rushing through ten touchdowns and one interception. They have owned this vaunted Alabama fits for a while. We kind of ignored it said Kevin Blackstone Frank sold. Her underselling thrashing that we saw last. I let me ask it. This way was the difference bigger talents or coaching or was it the culture. Like, you suggested Clinton aides because you had those guys. I mean, it was so great after the game guy taking the microphone from Davis and recruiting with coast players. I mean, I think that's what you're getting to the point. Leesville? You wanna come to program? You gotta worry about your coast. Karoo? Go ahead Clinton Yates. What was the biggest difference last night in the domination? You saw I think the biggest difference was that the talent led to the coaching disparity being extremely wide at this point. I mean, listen saving doing that fake kick..
