"AIR TRAVEL passengers, Delta Airlines would like to remind everyone having to change their flights due to the moving of the All Star game in Georgia about proper air travel procedures. Please don't forget to show your photo ID, even adjusting travel plans and never, ever bring up. Bottle of water through airport security. That is all. Thank you. Okay. Drink water. Oh, that's what his wife is, Um, what is racist? You know what else I find a little unusual about Major League baseball. I believe it was the day before or the day after. I'm not sure which one happened first, either the day before or the day after they canceled Atlanta. Uh, Major League baseball went ahead and ink the deal. That means they signed a contract they extended and expanded their Com tracked With Chinese telecommunications giant tinsel Remember Tencent? Yeah, I do. And that was the same company that briefly Dropped in B a. Remember that because basically, this is the Chinese Communist Party television and Major League Baseball. Has expanded their involvement with the Chinese Communist Party. At the same time, they bore day after one way another that they told Georgia they just being too mean to people. Huh? And we got our values now understand the Chinese Communist Party slave labor. Is responsible for an estimated 100 million unnatural deaths since they took power in China did 19 and 49 natural death Now that that's a conservative figure 100 million people have died because of the Chinese Communist Party that probably wouldn't have otherwise, at least not Right down. Major league baseball say they find with the Communists they find with Cuba and China. But they ain't down with Hotlanta. Have you ever heard about how in China the bodies of political prisoners will just disappear? And there's this theory. It was in NPR years ago about the exhibited cadavers that are on display at that. Traveling museum exhibit called Body Works. Have you ever seen Love Bodywork? Okay, so bodywork started off. They're like dead Chinese leaders. Yeah, well, that's what they claim up or body body worlds or whatever is a body worlds that years ago that started off it was this guy. I think he was in Germany or Austria somewhere in there in the middle of Europe. Started this exhibit where he would take people's dead bodies, and he would sort of make them plastic like Esso. They could be used as an exhibit right and it became so popular that they needed more bodies. Now, according to a 2006 exhibit article from NPR. Some of those bodies were political prisoners from China. And the most interesting thing about that is a decade or two ago, liberals actually cared about the human rights crisis in China. Remember the Tibetan Freedom concert. I've members something about that back in the new love the concert would probably suck because I've heard Tibetan music. There's a guy Oh, and then he had gone. That's not much of a concert, is it? Well, as it turns out that Tibet Freedom concert was actually like a bunch of rock bands and not to bet band. Yeah, it was like the Beastie Boys and R E M radio had rage against the machine and just bad. Well, they were wrong. They were big in the nineties is the point. And so they had this big concert, and the whole point was that these live Roll, affluent people from Hollywood. We're really concerned about religious liberties being violated overseas in China, and all of those people today are still alive, and they think Trump is wrong about China. And we're being unfair to China and you shouldn't criticize China for the coronavirus in China. Jiang Jonah, I know all those people are still out there right now. They still have careers. Pearl Jam, The Beastie Boys. Atlantis. More said 20 years ago. You guys all told us to be worried about China. Now you're okay with China. Of course. What happened? Trump Derangement syndrome. That's it. Trump doesn't like China. So now you like child's exactly how this game is played, sir, But some of these were huge bands you to sonic youth. I'm just reading the lineup right now. I mean these air Not obscure rock bands by any means, many of them still at the forefront of the industry out there the problem with him Well, you know, Major League baseball hooking up with the genocidal maniacs like the Chinese government? Yes, not to Chinese people understand? We cool with Asians were all right. You good? I'm good. Why would think that if you're cool with visions than being concerned about the oppressive Chinese government, exactly. The government is their problem. Yeah. I mean, who do you think it's treated worse by the Chinese Communist Party? These people. What is the answer to that us Getting involved in Chinese politics would be kind of like the president of the United States getting involved in some little local city ordinance. Oh, that happened, though, didn't it? Oh, well, yeah, Biden did. But you know much presidents matter fact, Biden is the first president in U. S history to bring officially bring economic sanctions against a state. For local legislation because he doesn't like it. It is not the president's job and never has until this guy. To say, uh, we're bringing federal your economic sanctions against a local state. Is this about the racist roads? It must be. That was the thing got racist rose and another question. A lot of black people have is. Why is he picking on Uh, a state and the city majority Black city like Atlanta, But he's leaving Houston and Miami alone. Is it because of the Hispanic population? Well, we'll never know. We don't know. But he is picking on Houston in New Orleans, He stopped a road construction project in both cities. As he claimed that there was a racist control. Yeah, the racist road now New Orleans. That was the other one earlier they were gonna have a highway expansion project there, and Mayor Pete came and he was like, you know, this'll disproportionately affects minorities, and that makes it a racist road. I felt that cute little Mayor Pete on TV yesterday, dressing like a grown up and acting like he's like a whole big man and everything now. But For the life of me. I still can't figure out what he has to do with transportation. Well back when he first got that job. You said he was going to use it to stop the spread of racism. When I know that's what we all want from our department of Transportation and a lot of us thought, you know, just, you know, he's the transportation secretary. He still hasn't really got a clue. What does that have to do with racism? Well, now we know he's blocked Tonto. I think there's another one in New York, you know, but not a skybox on racist roads, racist roads and coming up After this racist trees, 866 W. J, Who's been on, hold the longest.

That's a Dr Pepper tastes better If you have coronavirus that Coca Cola does. Is that the silver lining Now our listeners in Central Texas will tell you there is a Dr Pepper Museum in Waco, Texas, among other things, and wake up and I'm not gonna be the guy. I'm not gonna be the guy who points out that just like what a burger it got purchased by a bank in Chicago many years ago. Don't be that back to me. I won't visit the border. Not.

Look ahead to those games a little bit later on. Welcome indiana all going to feel. It's off native. Anouar anna craig. Burley to the show craig. Another good champions league tie today. Yeah absolutely and that goal from bellingham and he how good was he over the two legs for one so young but that goal just put the jails on minds on mindset of was going to be another story again but there were patient. Who a patient and the pastor and the got the job done. I don't think it was brilliant from them over the two games But it was certainly good enough. And i think dortmund can have many complete. I mean you can complain about the decision false game when the referee chopped off the bellingham goal but over the two legs. There was no surprise. We'll just a little bit too strong. But i thought they made a little bit work of the one hundred and eighty minutes then then then it should have been. I think when the draw was initially made made them we thought this is a bank city. We'll get through. No problem is craig said that made to work hard for it. I wouldn't necessarily say it was a banker but realistically call it. Favorable draw but the way that cities basically gone through this game here. It's been since about what had been like so far. Twenty twenty one. They don't always below teams away but it tends to find a way to win
What Should the Atlanta Falcons Do With the 4th Pick?
"Talk about another quarterback order player Who people these days. Certainly no. and that's matt ryan about that for a transition Terrific quarterback for very long time. 2016 was his best year was the mvp of the league with the falcons and took that team all the way to the super bowl and then from that point forward it has been sued of a steady decline for the team despite making the postseason in two thousand seventeen. They've won just eighteen games over the last three years and with that regression the falcons might hit the reset button in this draft with ryan being almost thirty six. They have a new head coach. And arthur smith they have the fourth pick. Overall general manager is teri faulk no and he said quote. We wanna stack good quarterbacks. Its prime time to do it. When you have a player like matt ryan because when you can get in the white quarterback you don't have that pressure play them right away so it opens up so many possibilities and we have to make sure we're evaluating those positions and we feel good about what we where we are there a lot of different ways to take that it certainly what i would say if among other things i wanted someone to come and try and trade for my fourth pick in this draft so teddy. I'm giving it to you directly here if you were the falcons right now. Are you looking to bring in players to help matt ryan try and win a championship again or are you looking to draft his eventual replacement. Said like i said about the smokescreen season. There you go right there you make everyone think that you're okay with draft a quarterback in developing under matt ryan. But you gotta take advantage of the quarterback desperation which is in this draft and everyone one maybe sneak up if they're guy falls to four and go ahead and get him because i think they should build and they need to usually head coaches come in. And they'll want to stack pile not quarterbacks but draft picks in terms of building a foundation model for their team so i would say definitely take advantage of the fourth overall pick trade down. Try to see if you can get some building.

How To Stand Out At Soccer Tryouts
"Back everyone to another edition of the soccer specialist. Podcast i apologize for not getting the on episode out last week. We are actually into a league season for the first time since spring of nineteen as you know. My girls are high school aid so we don't have a league season in the fall. Two things have been a little bit hectic but we are ready to go. I've just got pretty short one here for you today. I know. I say that would probably be in twenty minutes. But i just wanted to go a little bit over some tryout stuff. I know that's a popular topic in terms of preparing for tryouts. It's that time of year in most places. So i did want to go over that to some simple tips and things that you can do for you can numb us to prepare But off the top my head. Some of the things that stand out to me. There's a lot of mental stops. You can listen to other podcast episodes for that of because all that applies to anything gained practices. Tryouts wanna give you some specific tryout stuff give you a little bit of a viewpoint from a coach who's been watching them for a long long time and also some things from the player perspective as what you can do in. Look lots of players. They're right everybody's nervous. You're worried about making mistakes making the team whether it's your current team or a new team and so a few little differences that i think you should focus on from tryout to normal practices or what have you is things like hiding. Do not hide. This is so important tryouts. It is about standing out. It's about getting the coaches attention. It doesn't mean doing anything crazy. But to many players from what i've seen when it comes to the small side of gains and maybe some scrimmages they tend to hang back on defense even whether or not really typically defensive player on their on their team and they don't get involved too much they get the ball. They get rid of it quickly. They make just a simple pass because they're so afraid of making a mistake but if you play like that coaches trainers whoever's doing the evaluations they're not even really gonna notice you. You need to catch their attention if you hang back and you're not involved. How do they even know evaluate you. They don't really see you on the ball and it doesn't mean don't defend. Don't get that. Don't get me wrong about that at all but it does mean get involved in the game.

"league" Discussed on Hotline League
"Nuanced as we're having right now is that you actually do. It does bring up a bunch of interesting conversations about you. Know the nature of of talent with north america. how to solve it etc etc. And i think like what i would love to see from the community is some sort of consensus around. What is a sufficiently a leak. Look lake you know. Is it for example. Is it to imports right. So people like straight up coming from like china korea eu and then one person who was a naturalized residents. Someone who's been here for a while but they started somewhere else and then to people who are native to the us canada and oc. Like i don't know i. I think the answer is a little bit different for everyone. But i think that would be healthy conversation to have like between actually riot team owners at the community but more that the team owners can actually build consensus with the community and sound like the actually listening right and they'll have interests aligned. I think the better estate we can get to that. Been my frustration on this like it is actually so hard to have a dialogue around us like i would love to. I think mark united touch with a little bit host like a roundtable discussion with multiple owners. Somebody from riot like have a broader conversation about this rather than have it be the singer. You've got like owners who in a lot of cases feel like they're dodging the question. Don't wanna like exactly say what is going on right has been just like absolutely silent on all this stuff. I'm not trying to like call people out or whatever but it is disappointing to me that it feels. We can't have an open. Transparent conversation around it and sets everyone. Just like you know. Stigmatized deleting tweets in reggie saying imports imports imports and like all. This kind of weird stuff has spawned out of it. So i had. Yeah i had a gm message me And i won't i. I had somebody message me Gm for one of the teams and say like. Hey i love if you could get the owners until like an actual conversation around the stuff. I think it'd be good. And i'm like yeah i'd love to do that But i like i. I can't nobody wants to do this. You know so. Yeah but what. What are you guys make. I do think something that is kind of glossed over a little. Bit is the global impact of this right so if we just if we just take it as a given for the sake of argument that whatever is done in an a will get married in other regions. I don't know if it's immediately. I don't know if so here's so like do you. Do you guys think there's even an advantage north america. If this becomes a global change will hear something kelsey. Moser pointed out on twitter. That i think you saw to maybe retweeted. Ldl salary caps l. p. o. Has a salary cap kind of convoluted. it's not like from what i understand from talking to her. Its complicated where. There's like a soft cap. Part kept some exceptions or whatever but in a world where north america does not have a salary cap. Because there's no way to legally do that it we could potentially spend more to bring players over and potentially beat out l. p. l. teams on on building these rosters and grabbing talent. And that's where it does get kinda weird on a balanced like now. Suddenly we have more capital to build these types of of big teams and then the field is. I think i think It really depends on the implementation. Because if it's like a no-hold-bars totally lifted kinda thing. I think that'd be disastrous for every league. I don't think it actually benefits anyone a like you. We talked a lot about connection from fans to players in north america but for regions like e you and korea. You're just gonna get weaker straight up like your pounds coming over here. it's going more. It's going to china for korean staff like you're not gonna see as many hype matchups domestically and you'll have to wait to get them at international competition and even then like it's just going to be for at least for north america probably full care matchup verse full care match if they would have been seeing if the rules say the same a couple times a year in korea. Now you're seeing it once a year internationally. Know like i just i think it would not be any any better It's fully floodgates. Open anything else requires kind of knowledge. Like what what. What are we talking about here. Yeah i do go ahead if you if you want to have a final point. Oh no i was just gonna say. I mean so a minimum right now. What we kinda have is an equilibrium. Globally where okay. Even in china like they have some korean players. Like you have the rookies. Who from what i understand is popular in china korea koreans in china who Who feel like they're part of a local culture who are accepted. You have a good mix of this scary jensen's and impacts and a you have like the jose de otros coming from south america so right now. There is an equilibrium. But i think going forward in the future like what i can see from the owners perspective is a lot of these naturalized guys are gonna leave and unless there's some like green card path that's like pretty reasonable and can help replenish this group. Once they all retire like na is going to start to trend downward relatives to some of these regions so that is a problem. that needs to be tackled. But i don't think any i. Maybe there's a few team owners who are extremists and like we have no import rule. I think that's like a really awful idea personally but there. There should be clear path. And one thing. I'll say to with with the conversation the fact that there's been not super good clarity from the team owners about what each of their stances are. It makes kind of easy to assume the worst. I think for a lot of the community And it's on one and it's like well if you don't think it's full dissolving. Then why are you not saying what you think. It should be And there hasn't been really anything put forward. That's like super specific of like. Hey i think they should be this and so it makes it really hard to engage with the team owners. Who feel like they haven't really given what they what. Their vision is other than well. Let's start a conversation and then they don't really offer what they want and then when you get them talking. They're like insulting the players in their own league like that. That's another angle to the players. I assume are not happy with the mcdonald's memes. You know it's kind of like haha but it's also like man. Fuck you guys. I think there's like an undercurrent of it in the feeling like if tsm's owner you know is talking to a nine player. Who's arguably the best residents support in in the league. You know it's like wow. This is not a healthy conversation right now. Guys absolutely not so mark. I don't know if i do. I do want to talk about the players stuff. I don't know if we're going to have a collar about it so if you do see any colors maybe it'd be good to talk about it because i i've had an interesting action trying to get statement out of the players association But if you do see that. That's cool i let you. Here's let's you you start pulling folks for the calls and haven't been an active night in discord already so i don't think we need the prompt. Okay we i'm not gonna say we need instructions or anything that i i do address one thing though because i see somebody named postmodernism in the chat talking about like. Is this even a thing. Is there any kind of concern around this and travis us manufacturing it now. I mean a video that went up right before. This that i think is is quite well crafted. And because i had an editor in sweden work on it overnight sort of talking about the mechanics of this how this works internally with politics round. Na team the global team how has to convince folks I tried to get postmodernism. Talk to watch it. He said he wouldn't wanna be click baited again. So i guess i just have to explain it here. So here is why. There's a couple of things one. I just want to address the people out there. That are saying. I'm click baiting this arm trying to do this. I am not the the videos that i am making.

"His contract. Couple more at least like at that point. You know we're talking get close to half some days. Career is in north america. I think for a lot of fans. They probably warm up to him pretty quickly and stuff so like i think to that point if there's a way to increase the number of imports but it's through like this means i don't think fans are as worried about that like i don't think people complain about. I haven't heard any fans complained about team liquid. You know despite being four out of five quote unquote non fans throw it in our face whenever t. l. performs and they go well. Listen there's four whatever. But like i don't think any fans care. I think we're proud to have core. Dj jensen those types of players. Who right in san turan. And that's why there's more to me is not that like someone can put us down for using imports but like that fans can connect with them and feel like they're part of the community. Yeah like. I don't think there's anything wrong with na's as brand being like hey. We're international melting pot right and we have like straight up imports like people who like god-like player from korea. We have guys who've came from another region but have been here for like five years or whatever like sundays of the world and the feel like an players and also people who are destroyed up and a you know they are citizens or whatever and they started in the league. Like i think finding the right mix of that should be the conversation as opposed to no import role versus import rule. Right but even even all this aside we do have to recognize that. Like yeah okay. Right is judge jury executioner on these matters. But probably what's eventually going to happen is whatever change happens in the nee has to happen. Globally i don't see a world where they just moving unilaterally so i think the the owners have to reckon with in In an a is hey okay. If this change got nobody would we actually be getting an advantage from this or would it actually just would all elite cream players go to china right and they're like real scenarios drawn. I don't know if you guys remember. I think it was in two thousand sixteen. The team like a samsung read was rumored to be put together. It was like who amid didn't like gum. Sue top rosser of like five korean players. I was supposed to go to the er and there was. Oh who is a wasn't mad life supposed to come over at some point. Was he part of the team or maybe it was a separate one but it might have been supper team but there were legit lake five import teams that. We're going to be coming over and that's like that's that's right like no. I don't think anyone now this is before franchising to be clear. So it's not. It's not like that you samsung. Sat couldn't just go send like a sister team to lcs now unless they bought one of the slots or in obviously there's restrictions around ownership and whatever but to your point. There are real scenarios where you could have. I mean those those five players get together and approach team owners as ayman wanna you know like some team owners gonna spend on that. Yeah sure for sure. So i think we definitely need some sort of protection against that but i can also see the argument that hey we need some way at least a naturalization that is more reasonable like charles you mentioned you can just get a green card. I don't know the implications are getting a green card like why hasn't gotten green card. I think they've been working. People have been on so it might. It might happen. So i've i've heard mixed things here so like empire on the chat He has he has said that It's much easier green card. And i've heard that recently too. Is that whatever in the us. For whatever reason lately it's been easier to get a green card But it's i don't know it is. It's it's interesting because we might see a lot of it this year. It it might not and it might the whole conversation my kind of fizzle out because maybe it's actually easier gig green card and theoretically if you can get a green card in less than four years. You actually have a path to being a resident in north america faster than you did underneath the rule that that system replaced right. Yeah and i would also say that there's going to be probably some bright stuff to like you can't just keep in your residency so a green card to north america. You can't go like sick all sit here for a little bit. Maybe i'll get back to korea. Maybe i'll go you know. I think there's probably a limit on the amount of times that you could do something like that i would hope in riots roebuck if they do make an easier path naturalization. That people aren't just. I'm in four different. I'm at four different regions. I'm all four of them. Yes because like crowned is played brazil. He played e he played same core. Jj they played all over the world. Some of these guys that same with ole and stuff. Yeah i mean in the rules. It says you can only be a league resident of league at a time so i think that does that leads covered up and i actually wonder hearing about this card being easy to get. I don't know what the definition of easy is like is actually a loophole. That's going to get exploited by teams evangeline mail order. Brides bring with this. I mean if you if. I don't know well if you think about it if you think talent like if you're a team owner you think talent is very valuable like you. You're you're pulling somebody over. Who's like farmer champion or something like that. Your best strategy. Assuming you can get a green card quickly is to sign up to a three year deal immediately. Start working on the green card the moment that you sign that teal and then get them as a resident so that they can either stay on your roster or suddenly you have under contract a player. Who's like amazing is a you know imported player. Who now doesn't take an import slot has a green card. That now you can now. You can flip that players contract for for quite a bit potentially if you if you wanted to so. It's i'm very interested like that is part of the xiv enjoyed. This conversation is because. I do think it is bringing up broader topics like we won't even talk about this probably on this episode but carlos is out on twitter and other people from l. e. c. I think ben spoon saying that. North american e you should merch into one league And there's like a whole conversation to be had there there's conversations around the how the green card system like the thing that i am enjoying about this conversation whenever it.

"It before. It usually is a lot harder to complete in traditional sports. There's like thirty teams and divisions and conferences and stuff like that so it's not that every split at some point you got a circle of second in league but i don't think it usually happens around one or first round robin move. Certainly we have a saying cycle. I think i might circle Either way michael. That's just the reason i said that was because that's actually the term that the golan guardians Up head of e sports hunter used whenever he was talking about the import role. Where he's like he feels a lot of. This is part of the the cycle of suc- Where in loses. So whatever it just just to be clear way. It's always it's a circle of sock. What's happening oh circle so what has happened and we should not be putting term out everyone. Everyone beating each other is the circle of suck led lights talking about that the traditional sports term. I didn't invent it. Google circled soccer. Okay i'm taking your words. History of circle sucking yes. Okay anyway I the at the lincoln that the twitch chat so that. I'm i'm vindicated on this exact. Yeah to point capulets okay. This went far went far So that happened But man it's hard. It's hard to think of too many other things. Brock's came in. Peter done less like hype or whatever the a player physically being on on the broadcast. But peter dunn. Who is edgy coach. That was. I think people really excited to have him come to. He's now here's while he had a bunch of visa issues And i think most of that like there was some news abroad but a lot of it was was obviously the import stuff. And so that clearly having a primal on this episode is i think part of the reason why It's it's great to have a modest because we're covering that stuff. I'm talking about it so i don't know. Should we just dive into it. Do you want me to do callers. Do you want to do a little of us. First and then into callers. Let's do a little of us first and then callers okay. I mean at least for me. I feel like i've we talked about it. A fair amount last year so rather than talking about. Hey we think that this like well first off. Why don't we get primal. Take because i say i know you've had some tweets but you know people might not know your stand so it'd be cool to hear from you especially given your your background. Yeah so just context travis. Talk about is Actually wrote the rule the original in two thousand fourteen off the updates to the role in two thousand sixteen for left riot So i was. I was super passionate about this when i started at right. Especially because i come from the starcraft sea-knights seen what happened there. So i think the problem with this whole conversation is that a. It's like it's not being presented with any nuance right. And be where really fixated on just north america. I think the first thing we have to recognize this is a global rule right. Global role with regional implementations so even if team owners wanted to lift the import role. And i'm not saying they want to completely lift it. We'll get to the nuance of what it like. They're saying in a second day could not just lifted in north america and everything else remains fixed rate. So let's say you abolish import rule. Eighteenth can have five imports. That means china can have five imports. That means brazil have five imports. That means you can have five imports. So it's kinda complicated right. Because if the assumption is that lifting the rule will make any competitive or more competitive relative regions. We have to recognize that every other region is getting that quote unquote advantage. I mean theoretically right could do whatever they want. They could lift them. Port role for north america and not lifted for the other regions. They could an in reality just knowing how team owners interact with the league right like imagine. Imagine saying there's any chance. Carlos would ever let that happen to be clear but like i've just saying it is. It is true that like there's no legal reason. why right is judge jury and executioner. Here they can do whatever they want. Technically true they could do whatever they want. I would be hard pressed to conceivable reality where anna gets to do this and other regions. Don't get to do it. But in theory they could all do it but i think one of the nuances. That's being losses. Eight first of all. I team owners are being painted as the great in here like. Oh they don't care about north american thailand. Oh they you know. They don't care about anything but their bottom line but we should recognize team owners are incentivized to have the league be as popular as possible. Right and up. A component of that is certainly who the players are right and do the fans have an affinity for them now. The affinity come come from a number of reasons. Shared nationality is one of them right. So i think the question is not like why do why do the team owners like dislike north american thailand or why they against uh I think the the broader the more interesting question is what is leading them to believe that having league potentially has more imports that we have now is actually a more fun experience for fans and is actually better long-term. Now one one argument. I could hear and i haven't heard any team. Owner really comprehensive arguments. Really hard to refute. But one argument. I could at least conceivable that could maybe make sense is that they think. Hey north america. Having more imports means better. Performance.

I haven't been this enthusiastic for an episode of hotline league and some time and it's all because of the crazy games that we had this week and we're gonna be talking about that. They're all episode nothing else. There's been no other news. Nothing has happened of course. Fourth imports imports imports imports. Imports imports imports adults. We're talking about the global economy on this episode. Okay so first off shot at our sponsors alien hotline and gainesville they both power hot league and We love we love them. We'll talk about more of them or both of them. Later on as we get further into the show But first off. My constant co host is here mark zimmerman. How's it going. It's going good. I feel like you have a different angle than you normally do on the show. I mean maybe. I have more like i dunno. Okay okay good forget crotch shots but how how you been mark would bring along with you not much actually just finished like working through the audio book for the fourth harry potter book. It's really fucked up. How audible it doesn't let you pick what narrator you want and so like day living the. Us suggest jim dale. I think his name is no. I don't know the guy. Maybe he's good but he's just like some crusty old down in american dude in like i cannot believe that this is hogwarts. When there's some normal ass. American guy in so i had to try and find the stephen fry version. Who by the way. Stephen fry's incredible but like you can't do that because apparently i live united states so i had to go find some but i don't think it's audible. I think that's probably the publishers right. Like there's probably somebody who owns the rights in the uk and somebody who owns the rights and the us. I mean i'm not here to politics. Travis i'm just saying it's busted that i have to find some janke work around to listen to stephen fry. Tell me about harry potter. What's wrong with homegrown. Native tr- Narrators what do you have that mark. I'm trying to get to the the the originally wanted airport anyways and i watched the movie. It's it's good. You know i know. I know we don't jk rowling for very good reasons. But god damn some of that stuff magical is overrated anyway. Do you wanna open that. Can of worms right harry potter but like i dunno i. It's like It look it's good for what it is which is like a mass market thing. But there's so much stuff in there mark wound they use the time turner just in the other books. That seems like such a great way to defeat people as just flipping back time. Yeah sure it's fucking incoherent as hell wasn't trying to be like this insane thing exactly and that's not an ncaa mickey mouse cartoons and be like well some of the logic here just Doesn't hold up this children's book. I don't like how listen man it grew with its audience in a way that no series ever has ever will again it capitalized on the changes that you go through better than anything else. You connect it to the reader because jim. Dale is from england. well. I don't know he sounded american. Anyway we've got that's primal on as well first time on the show. Welcome that's primal to shake primal calling primal man okay. I i I've known you for so long. And i'm just i'm just reteaching myself anyway Let how how you doing. How's your week been doing fantastic. You know i don. I don't know what kind of slander you were throwing a harry potter. Because i actually disconnected mid statement. Or you're still in my book. I was actually considering. Just leaving We got you slanders terms but yeah i'm doing fantastic. Men grew gets to be alive. So we have you on the show. I think mark and i had talked about reaching out to you Towards the start of the season when you join the lcs broadcast And because mark. And i are terrible at putting any effort into actually making the show Despite the fact that it's the crown jewel of trafford industries We just hadn't reached out. And then this past week i realized it was the perfect week to reach out to you Because i know you did this. You mentioned this sort of at the very start on the very first day of lock in a lot of people don't know your background. They're just like oh he's just like a dude. They brought onto the lcs broadcast They don't know that you were formerly at riot before leaving and now returning in this capacity. Do you want to explain a little bit about your background. Yeah sure So i guess. I mean it depends on how far back we want to go. I've changed my real name and my my summit name gamertag whatever you wanna call it about. Well played dot org. Yeah yeah okay. So when i was in college i got really into starcraft to during the beta and became pretty good at the game but just also got really involved in the community and also starcraft at monitor moderator started organizing for fun and those tournaments for the time they had great production value for online tournaments organization eventually made a company out of it called while played and we produced tournaments for like msg and we did our own stuff and from during well played. I transitioned from starcraft into league of legends. I really fell in love with game when i graduated college. I interned actually riot right before i graduated graduated went back to riot and then i was there at ride for seven years started off doing league operations so disciplinary action..

"In one environment a import player coming over is offseason hype news. It's this new player that were like almost like a big shiny toy like this awesome thing. We just got in the world like that. There's a limited number of times as that's happening in the off season. I think it's a different environment. If you're talking about a four teams could just be imported or something which is more of the concern that people have for for me. Like i don't care in those examples with ak- or ryo mars from people who have gotten flack from the community. I think people are upset. That north american talent wasn't being given a shot over them because they didn't feel like there's a big enough gap to qualify that. But i don't think that's really the same argument that will be making. The entire league was facing a potential situation. And i don't think the entire league would like seems like guardians would not be able in their current financial situation. Just go grab a ton of imported players or stuff like that. But i think the concern for fans is in a situation where the top three teams. Your league have zero north american players. And they're the ones that world's how do you as a fan connect with that and it's not about understanding them. I bet these teams would pump out a lot of content around them. I'm sure they would do interviews and csm legends team liquid. Whatever the hell it's called now marvel sell out. I don't know like the content was still happen in that they would still do well. I think both of those conditions that you're talking about would be met but in this new environment there's zero north american players potentially on your best teams not the entire league. But just the ones that you're actually sending competitively that you want to rally behind that you're gonna pop off liquorice of semifinals. I don't think people will connect with them. And i think that's where a lot of fans at least in the polls that chavez's insofar have said that like i would not connect with a team like that i would not connect if t. l. went out and bought down one because their pockets are deeper something you know or like a situation like i mean we. We don't have to go too far to see how this works. See nine in their first year of being an overwatch league got the london. Slot created london spitfire. A team of Full korean players and was just what they want. Want the one. That's the year i think so. I think the first year right. So i think i think of that stuff and yes. You're right that. I think they may content. Like i've heard i think bjork's and is a pretty good example because i've seen people say like well bjork's in is an import and like he's really popular bjork's sin came to a team that was odd one Who is on that team. Ottawa diafoirus especial. And was it not. While yeah i think. Part of the reason bucs and became really popular was because he was placed on that team. Obviously he's really great. Obviously a lot of people who watch league now don't know any of those names but creating that player and environ. That's actually why love the import rule the way it is right now is we have cordray. Jay can come in to a team that like double if on okay jackass and had some of the highs following in the league. Jack we should talk about the stuff. Jack if you wanna come on the next highly let me know. I'll see you in the loop the media interviews tomorrow i was gonna say Oh yeah according jake coming to the league doing really great but also being on a team that has Wft on it has players who have been the league for quite some time Those players have those players helped. I think quarter jay become more popular than he would have. I think i i. I think mixing this the players in having this sort of rule where you have a little bit of both is actually what's best most ideal. And that's why i've never arguing against having in the league Or players that come across different reach. And we've gotta figure out a better terminology. I i always feel weird. When i'm called them imports but ended up. Okay sponsor okay. So i have no take on this but i just want to ask you a question and this is a genuine question to the cola is fbi successful. Import is import. Cool so gino. The gap between fbi and the other eighty carries in the league was not the same gap between ryo mama and the admit other midland is the two year that fbi went to msi and go pick up. Golden guardians ryan was considered so much better than every other midlander in the appeal. That like it was like if you did not throwing two or three bands or specifically craft a strategy to take this guy out that the bombs the Was on was just going to run over the top of you whilst respect everything saying like the fbi This is ryan inherited is so infuriating as van like told me like he didn't come and perform well but to say that this was just like a shot in the dock that one hundred days to look like was shit or whatever like is just incredibly infuriating as a nice fan. Because everyone's like why didn't they just got another great. Owes import like fbi and it was like domestically this guy was like fbi plus of midland. It was like so good. And that's why all those fans will always get pissed off when he gets thrown in the bannon bookcase. And like i do think you do miss a lot of context because fbi when he can't be golden guardians was like incredibly underwhelming. He actually was put back into academy then. He had to grow his way up at the london. Couple of things and ryan so far in economy. This year i think if using considered one of the best molina's kademi.

You have to bring them back to consciously competent and that is really hot to during a stage game because you actually just want place in flow state. Which a lot of. The time is consciously conference so as kelsey. Scientists crews will really really good at teaching series because that's when actual learning happened mechanics my favorite periods outside of just be the early season before matches start and are basically the the times where there's revivals because that's like a two week period where there are no matches and you just basically are able to say today. We're going to drill this concept and then the next ads today. We're going to drill. If you're preparing every week for match a lot of times you don't have that opportunity which makes development a little bit difficult because you're basically compartmentalizing development into two days minimum maximum. The next few days are preparing for the matches. And so that's why. I think it's it's a i can't imagine a situation where i basically have two days. Where one days off a screamed in the rest of the week are matches. I can't imagine how you would plan development and that kind of situation. Well the thing is right and this is really interesting kelsey because this has come up with a lot of things at team liquid has talked about. And i've talked about in the past the only way you do it. Well if you are willing to lose games and this is just like Like even though like this will say like a cop out. Never hate steve pate. I can just say twitch jeff subscribe to travis pay state like going nuts right now but did you actually just have to be able to spend scrimps. Getting better and that concept is gonna stop against two of the opponent. Play that that maybe you just let. Maybe you just need to get better at riff. Heralds data spend like twenty games of the week like at seven minutes long that are you gonna do heroin. Join the team fighting either winning or losing the thought and then just you know being able to raise up again fighting secondary you wanted to But like that isn't going to always Conducive to winning the games on the way it will win the games in the future. A minute when you get again struggling so i want to wrap up this so that we get more community colleges but is there what what would you guys say would be the thing that you'd like to say to see instead. Is there like a simple solution to this. Who think ari kind of mentioned it very briefly but drop tournament wonderment and i think that will help a lot in terms of the economy. I azam economy coach. Like i said was really interested in this idea of a month long boot. Camp and academy dislike randomly season. I thought it was a really cool idea that i know that. A lot of other academy coaches an academy players have expressed the idea that you know that means. There's less time where where like playing matches. We don't feel like there's a goal. I just think just challenging the idea of what structural stuff can you work on during that time and it gets really cool But if we want to do that. I think making entrance into the key ones optional. Is good idea may get a little bit difficult for tournament organizers but if we can do that i think that would be cool to hey kelsey anything you want to shut out before we go onto the next caller support evil geniuses are price teams. Doing really really well. Economy team hasn't been doing as well but hoping that they have a really their opportunity about act with the second tier one tournament and then then obviously the elsia is great.

Kind of like that run aleutian. Top won't be one every thursday night to determine who doesn't want it personally. Because i think that's more of an indictment if it if the system is just not working for you so like for next the playoffs or something and you really have an issue in the top line or if you just have an issue of how your team works with your top leaders in yet and that to me. That's a good band aid solution of like trying to mix and match the challenge. The but i think. Gsm would hate for them to do in the first five weeks. 'cause then you just have no stability it. It would be as bad as like. I think last year when. Tsm was just trying a new flavor of the month every week in terms of like compositions that were running. Yeah i i agree with her as late if they don't let who and you get enough time to you know get started. It's you called. Were saying they need to take him out. And now burn i if they're going to stick with uni like i'd just sang in certain matchups at probably a better idea. Meanwhile chat trying to bait us into talking about academy nice race bond Blaine thank you so much for the call. I hope your team does well. This is here. what what do you wanna to talk about or sorry. What do you wanna shut out here at the end. I wanna shout travis and mark. I've been watching for years. I time on the show love it. I'm shattered alienware. Obviously yeah said pretty much shot cloud nine. Let's go let's go boys thank you call. Oh no problem. You guys are arguing. I should get form of compensation this for the dubs that i am taking all right. What are you taking over changes position to my position. He was all all these callers. Res- they're like there's very few that ever call in and are like actually. I'm gonna stand by this because we get people that call in there. Like i think that the lcs should actually just stop competing entirely. And that's how we'll win and then mark like that doesn't make sense for xyz and then they go you right. I guess. I should have thought about this a bit more. So like whatever you convert of or caller. You shouldn't feel that great feeling. Pretty fucking good travis. Don't tear me down like you. Do the rest of the league tracks out the league. I traverse haired out of the league. That's all you do. We i i i have about people think i am bland in game and have no personality or opinions. Somebody said earlier That i was the person i got picked last in gym Because that's all these alphabet bully people like what it is here. Bt where you calling from from.

"Is saying that. The i don't know if mark myself or raza experts on epl so it's hard to discuss specific worsening people are saying the epl literally has a british quota is true or have you heard of this all i think the lower end teams do if i'm correct and it has changed over the years because there are probably some real hardcore like championship level teams that championship rule. The league teams that know about that but they have had restrictions as far as quotas for british players. But i mean those. They never have a problem with that because no ever not really get fined by except maybe you know like i think manchester city usually gets fine by it because they always break the rules. But i mean that's practically twist says all of them have rules matic issue the problem. Is i think this is okay. So honest go to the probably the best example of it which probably the nba right. Nba has a lot of foreign allen. Right now coming in one of the best player than league right now. Ydanis entered the campbell in general. If you might thing is if you just open up the I'm not against having an open league to like and no restrictions whatsoever as long as that's the case with every region and then you have to recognize the positives and negatives to that. Where do the players want to go because the nba is thriving. It's paying most. It's an ideal destination for people who wants to go and not only make the big bucks but also live in a hospitable place wherever they may be right so you just have to figure out which country that's gonna be and now you've got to figure out if you open. The restrictions around the globe are people wanting to go to north america or people wanting to go to china or like or europe maybe north america. But that's going to clash with regions. Put it what their needs are guy. You're probably going to take a if people wanna go to north america. You're going to take a good fucking shit load of european talent. You're gonna like that whatsoever. So maybe north. America maybe you or of your opinion would be like yeah. I'm down for that You're going to be number by quite a bit. So i i think just from that basis from that from that viewpoint i'll be against it That that'd be my take. I mean here's here's a question for you you fast. Do you think like let's say a eat was. Epl's was called in purley anyway. Whatever let's say one of these soccer teams From europe they announced tomorrow that they were gonna have twentyfive players who had never competed in the league before all from a different region. Outside of europe all come inform like a team. I get the feeling that that would not be popular among fans. Maybe because i agree i agree with that and that usually never happens because he only teams that actually bring in that much Much international talent are usually top level teams but then they have their bottom teams which are not even bottom feeder teams. They are actually competitive with you. Know with a time of local talent. And that's that's the only thing. I my argument with this is is. I don't even think if the restriction was lifted. I don't think there would be a team in the lcs. Save one or two that would fully import but there were still be tons of bottom teams would still try to sell that. Were local talent and they would have tons of fans because of it citation needed For this conversational. I'm landing on. This is like if we're gonna use a real world example. I'm fine with that. I actually love to look at a real case. Study for this but pretty much every league in the world where. There's a large amount of importing at least the popular ones that we're talking about that. League is the premier version of that league like the nba is siphoning talent into it. Because it's the best reach like best spot in world to play and these players are getting an opportunity. Same with the mlb. I just looked it up. There's twenty eight percent from twenty nine hundred twenty five percent of the players two hundred fifty one eight hundred and eighty two. Mlb is the biggest in the world. So that's where there's a lot of like the importing fine there because you were already like you don't need to preserve spots for american talent because we're already the top of it so like is there a case that we can look at where the region that's doing. The importing is actually not the leader in the world. Like there's turkish leagues that will get like up some pro players from a from a nba. Excuse me like and stuff like that. I know some turkish leagues have imported like brandon jennings for a little bit when he didn't wanna go to turkey. Forget where he went exactly nieva. Spain fucking no but like brandon jennings there for a little bit out of high school but like i can't think of a league that has the money like we do to take from the premier league's in the world and then bring it over. China china brings people over like but those are usually like kind of washed pros going there. At that point you know like stefan marberry whatever played and was like dominating china for like the last five years of his career. Whatever the fuck you was doing you know like that happens. But it's not like it's not like china just suddenly bought michael jordan or like could ever get lebron or or like that. That's why none of these examples work because like there is a possibility that you know you could get a dumb one..

"But italy he you want on your team but whatever so perhaps you can pay people less because the supply potentially goes up rate. I mean for instance the lcs like the norton. Mcken make sense if you think about it. Because the native north american players would now have to compete against other players from other regions for their spots. They wouldn't necessarily guaranteed x. Number per team and so as supply goes up. Demand goes down which would lower the prices for some of the salaries on these players. I think that's part of the the reason i think others just other reasons are people. Think like hey we need to win. We're not gonna win if we don't if we can't import these players i don't know But i mean again. Stephen and jackie think talked about this thorn show so people can go see the reasons they listed. I don't know if there's a variety of different reasons or not but Would be very interesting to see if this ends up changing at some point in time this year or not. I don't know what right it's gonna do. What do you have a instinct on You like this idea got reaction. I don't mostly because every other region is whole to the same kind of rules and restrictions. I know some regions like l. p. l. is much harder because i'm getting a green card is higher Things like that And also i think it comes down to trust factor in picking which players you deem is better than domestic talent I don't have that trust in teams. Picking a player that they deem is better than North american players that we have in the academy system. I think we made a huge leap actually this year With the amateur system. Bring people up and i want to see that you know continuing. I think it would be a bad decision to open the gates and allow for a players who you know. I mean it really does depend on management. Maybe it doesn't mean too much. Because i'm looking at the roster's right now and a lot of rosters. Don't even hit the to player import You know rule. But i just don't like it. I don't think that it's You know healthy. For north. America bringing you know for north american talent and also just in terms of fairness with the other regions. I know people will always use fairness and the other city. North america has never done that north in international events But if you start importing players who are not able to make it to elsie. K teams or l. p. l. teams. It's not like it's going to change. I don't think he's also changed at all. Yeah i think I think there is a portion of the fan base. Who wouldn't care and just be like cool. We get better players. I get to watch but you can watch them right now. You know if you wanna watch. The highest tier league legends. Watch went on one. Plays watch when fbi jianye plays You know go watch them right now just like the shy comes north america. You know like you could just you watch him in l. p. l. against higher competition so i don't think it's i think it would not really service those people who are down for it because they are already are being service in that regard. If i'm going watch the best play. Danny would piss off a lot of people to offense not be happy about watching multiple all imports squads. I think People tie elm q. Q. is remembered pretty fondly in the community but they were an oddity. In that regard they were the only team that managed to do it quantified. They busted out on mash. Pull it off. They went to worlds and they disappeared after these changes and stuff but like they were pretty funny like they were honestly a decently interesting group of guys to watch and they were good and i think like what you would see there be multiple teams like them not all of them have as much personality and it's not all of them would be good in. I think that would add on a. I think it would get old really fast. And then even if you do see success with import squad like is just like the naysayers are just loaded up with ammo. Young like right now is even in a world where like let's say a tactical was somebody like we. You can build these rosters right now where it's five players who are not Not all people that were born in canada or America however you want to describe it but people who have moved over here to play league legends overtime become part of the system Through either grandfathering or otherwise Those that like if if seen earth pl l. one right now. I don't think people would be being with say there'd be some naysayers but they wouldn't be like wow t. l. one. Msi like it doesn't count because but like if if next year we just had five new players who had never competed in league. Before three months later they win. Sorry who never competed in the league. Right before the lcs who three months later go would win an msi trophy for. I think that would feel very strange. So obviously that's like an extreme version of this. But i think that's why there's there's kind of a slider on the import stuff By the just iran a poll little bit ago. I think it was like four percent. I don't care Nineteen percent That they they said no but the vast majority everybody else said. Yes so what that tells me is by the way because so few people very voted. I don't care this is something a lot of people care about Not that i think my twitter chats necessarily representative of the audience. But you get my point so like after you take on. This first thing goes the other way around. Yeah most people voted. No they don't want the restriction. Sorry if i go backwards. Yeah you you said at the most people do not want the import rule restricted. So while travis is receiving the goods. I think i will. I do believe that there. If you open the take away the restrictions for sure like you can build teams. That are objectively straw. I believe if if the general managers make the right. Decisions related teams make Ownership makes the right decisions in terms of like picking players from You know either. Europe china or korea. I'm sure you can build pretty strong. Roster you can have an objectively stronger elsie. S like but for me. The one thing that i kind of push back on is that i don't necessarily believe just from decisions that have been made the previous years that that would actually happen I think branding matters a lot. So if somebody has a large of kind of let's say save the world And regardless of the level of play that they showcased They might have a high chance to making a north america. That's what i'm concerned about. That's the that's the first thing that i'm worried about margot explain what the whole thing. Sorry last thing. What the how explain treadmill of. Apparently i keep saying wrong. So i know what the pollsters. I can't correctly tonight apparently And last thing for is. I know that there is. I've always been concerned about the whole xenophobia of foreigners come in etc taking our jobs and all that and i don't want my opinion to be an echo of that because that's literally america by the way like the land of opportunity a lot it's a nation of immigrants so people coming into the country defying a new home and etc. That's really with the is about. I know that's a philosophical debate. Now go on forever as travis by himself. He's blue on his food. But like so. I wanna push back to that. I do think that it's a gray area and for me. I think that we have a lot of great players. They're coming up in an amateur and academy that aren't the level A lot of talents that you know ownership would probably end up big bring in and i also think that the bottom five teams. Don't even.

"Compared to like so much better. Than what are you gonna save on. I was gonna say i'm sure you. You had millions upon millions of dollars coming in from high level investors as well. That's my fault. Even iraq out. Obviously a couple of things like an automated channel Politically political travis. Stralia today right now. There's a lot of unhappy about that And i think they should just change the goddamn date. So say that Respect to the fest. April of australia And then the second that doesn't make sense to any of the north american. The australians listening yet I maybe look it up and get informed like if you not and if you wanna and then the second thing is shout jenner. who's by ana. Before i came here and i think maybe this on my son was diagnosed with autism Just before i got on the plane to come here to north america and gentlemen honor is just like incredibly supportive. We also have like a three month old son at home as well. And i just like packed up american to book so i shall not general shape. She's really my rock and just doing good and stuff side. Just shout out my family very good. That's very sweet. Thank thank you so much spun for coming on and being so wholesome. I appreciate it My shoutouts listen. My interviews have been fucking sick. Go look at them. I wish that the broadcast like was picking up some of these storylines and some of them. They are shout out to the broadcast for picking up the ones that they are. But there's still so many good stories that are coming out. And i don't even necessarily think it's just me it's like there's some really interesting stuff going on the and some really great stories so please take a look at those the impact one is gonna come out to create the perkins insane and And i'm gonna interview captain flyer soon about his decision to to stop working with mark as much i think is what is he went freelance because he felt no he wanted to do more.

"American very jokey room. So one of the things that i love is i was talking to. Who was i talking to. I did an interview or something with somebody this weekend. And people were just calling him where they. I think they were calling brandon. Because i think that's his name is his real name. Yeah so they. Just all apparently call him brandon internally. And i'm like. I told them i'm trying to remember who it was was at diamond and every diamond i was like. Please don't ever call him brandon again. Jose devoto is such like this epic name console. When you're like. Oh yeah. I was talking to brandon. I'm like no don't do that. I wanna hear you say so either way it's It's been very fun to see him. Hem join up Chucho what do you do. You think that they'll be more people who watched the lcs now because of his inclusion it thinks. Oh yes they also pushback. The latin america league a few hours so they don't overlap with the elsia so think that may also killed. That's cool. is there anybody who commentators. Lcs in in spanish. Don't think so yeah. I know that they had mentioned that. an there is a semi who asked that in like a press conference with commission really because obviously in are sorry l. e. c. They translate the the league into so many different languages. But there are a lot of spanish speakers in the us and then obviously with latin american. All that stuff. You would hope that they would be able to start a a spanish language stream of the better. Allow those people to watch this in the future. nineteen ninety seven into twitter. Chat show wants to know if latin american viewers are mad that he left her. Lcs at all. I don't think so. I think everyone is being released We went wonderful to do good in one of the major leagues. Yeah that's cool. That's cool to see that Or or spun enough. Know if you guys have any takes on jose iota or anything he wants before we wrap up the call not me. I'm excited. I think i think myself and a lot of fans of just are happy. When one of the minor regions has a player. That pops. I think everyone was like oh sick. Fbi's dope and i think you saw how much of an opportunity i mean. Obviously a lot of that came from the fact that the p. l. a. Got shut down and they got made any resin set like there are a lot more chances given to opium prospects. But i don't think it would have been quite significant if if fbi didn't have a great split right before that happened If newbie does well. And if jose dod well can expect more of those kinds of players like rainbow seven they were so dominant for so long. I bet some of those players probably should have been tried like imported earlier and given given the chance Either way Chucho thank you so much for the call. I'm glad we got our jose. Iota take this this week. A brand take. Is there anything you want to say. out you shows.

"Reddit was like terrified that they might not have a a eighty or a support or atop leaner Because it was like we might not have soared art and may retire and so. I think it's very funny now that one week after you know I not now. But i think it's very funny that one week after you know people were freaking out about who knew. They were begging for who need to end up on the team because they might have not had anybody starting. Yeah it's a good point. Honestly i'm trying to figure out what the original take. So you're saying that you are upset. You think that this is an upsetting offseason outside looking in for time. So i'm saying that for a team that is to the caliber of i'm like this is one of the top awards. I think that the offseason should be had should have been a little bit more smoother. I don't think this would ever happen to see nine or i would say. I don't think things would be a lot more smooth and maybe that's easy to say until it actually happens but yeah my concern here is that you said that we should be giving them the benefit of the doubt because a lot of these things are unlike unknown. Like the whole taxation thing. Sure i the way. I saw it kind of like what we've arctic to kind of. Wrap it up from what i've been hearing which is like yeah the. Dsm went for something ambitious. Probably one of the more ambitious things like Probably the most ambitious not think about it because even rookie going to the l. pl even that huge that was like it's probably not as big of a competitive shock is to just going straight towards north america in comparison to like carita l. p. l. While you still believe like you can be a champion a championship winning winning team internationally. This one is a huge change. And it's worth six million dollar deal. You know like among two years right this for me. That was insanely ambitious so for them to even go for something like this like. I don't know how much of a rocky road. But this is a big win. The dab sort me the reason why. They had to spend so much because their backups. Were like your second option was no longer ignore because he had been signed. It was now like ziesel or hawk or something like that. And i think that's why sort was able to you know. Get bank one of the reasons. Of course the world's finalised right so this is my fear. Is that like how based speculation that is because like sorta was. I was what i would imagine like the original run forty s like the. He speaks the language. She is a world finalist support. One of the best now in the world like a somebody that you would wanna go. And i think deserves said the asking for this kind of money. obviously gsm fans will be having some ptsd because of the previous supports that they've had in yellow star in committee But i think that they should be learning lessons from like those days and sorta it is a different person so like i just think that this is for sure a really good pickup for them and i think a lot of the idea. I don't know about you. But i'm just saying the of like questioning from the fans come from loss trying to fill the doublet and lost is a really fucking good eighty gary. I agree so the fact that they're able to have lost sort are this is all speculation once again. Like on the rest of the ross. Because i don't know actually how much has been revealed or like have been announced. I mean i don't know. I don't know shit from where i am right now but like they would have be speak a new knee like. That's a top d roster or four depending on how under thieves go. I the way. I see this is that i think everything is really good from this team except for like obviously the question mark in a top line but if you look at the whole pool of top lanes in the in the next next year i think it's gotten like significantly weaker or at least like just based off of How do i put it like Experience obviously a lot of the players coming in like a good examples. Like you have. God revenge Niles fudge. a. Lotta these players that you can say like a few them. Fudge is a great example of someone who has already shown great strength. but he's going to have like rough times in premier league for the first few weeks. So i think that whom he actually at least with first few weeks look really good and this team. I think should be able to play. I'm talking about the sim should be able to play whom he style. A sort was on a team that was actually planning towards their top side of the map so like it feels as though even from a stylistic approach that they can play stop and they have a really strong coaching staff in fact that the coaching staff aspect. I think is really strong. So i think you're right like i would imagine that getting all of this together. It'd be really difficult because of the how ambitious getting sort was But yeah that's i thought. At the end product was still good. I would agree with that too. Even though like i totally agree that i actually do think they have a good rosser but i think that the way they got there was not a really smooth off season. I guess is what. I'm trying to say and also for all the people in the chat saying. Tsm hader make up your minds guys like two weeks ago or three weeks ago i was. Tsm fan boy. Now tsm hader make up your mind guys.

It's okay pretty rainy out. You know if well what do you What do you want to talk about on the show tonight. Yeah so. I wanted to talk about a summer. Twenty fifteen i guess double its first title. You know what it meant for the league. At the time. Like i felt like it was such a momentous thing for all of the fans who have been following him for so long there was the his trophy case. Was also the biggest. I guess the first real Like large event held in new york. And so i got to see it live. And that was the biggest thing for us over there. We've only had a couple Events since i s. kt rocks world. Semis was also there but like seal. Gts in madison square garden was like dude. I don't know who's the most hype event ever and to see double left really like i think. They were almost relegated in spring of that year. If i remember correctly like they almost lost to azure cats. There were in relegations in spring and so two to come from that two to three. Owing in one of the most historic venues felt like not only like a really great moment for for double if but also for the league think the cats thing was earlier. But if you told me that they were in in threat of getting relegated in spring of two thousand fifteen. I would definitely believe you for yeah to help us time line because we actually played c. g almost every single off postseason curse a little bit. Yeah as curse. We lost to them in the third fourth place match in spring two thousand fourteen summer. I think that's when they came back from their career boot camp and got destroyed. And that's when they they. They played the relegation series. After that one spring we played them again. And that was the piglet series and the auto spacing meam and twenty and then twenty fifteen. Summer was when they won the championship. Yeah and so. Yeah no i mean. I is. Soup agree sorry. Was that your first. You were there at madison square garden. Yes yeah it was my first league event. So definitely spoiled. I mean it was great. Were you. There is a sealed g fan. I was i mean not so much anymore saying but mean that must have been crazy for you because i talked about this a little bit in my the event got rick fox to buy into the league. It was back of an event. I and i think massive square garden too. I think they came in years later in part because of the experience that they had it at msg when the event was there so Better for worse. The i mean. I i remember specifically just the build up i so many league fans will not know like the the the legacy of sealed you just losing constantly and like always being this high team. I mean calvin if you wanna talk a little bit about that but it's like it always felt like sealed g was supposed to be good at the just like something would go wrong would either head towards relegations or just lose sadly or whatever. I don't know.

"league" Discussed on Stoppage Time: Champions League
"So I thought that the FAA Cobb for the British team for the English seems would be the way to still have a presence locally, but I didn't see the Champions League as apparel but it's a good point. And maybe you know the seeding of the Super League if you want to make it a little bit more on court. Married base should be the sixteen teams that made it to the knockout stages of the Champions League. Interesting. And, and that so you start the league, you know, and so they're the Champions League will take a an even added interest in the will be more interesting for to watch now. You know, could you have actually the Champions League three year and parallel with a Super League you're talking about already right players that are so overloaded? I'm I'm not sure that you can sustain that base. This would be the question where I think it would you know that's the balance where it's like all if you're playing a league competition every week. And if you did the champions as well you're you're playing in the mid week, and how do you how do you properly, train for that marathon, if you will, because that would be, you know how do you balance the fatigue? That would be so interesting. Well, but that's why the rich teams will do so much better right. Because it will have like twenty. Thirty players that are, you know, two hundred and they will just rotated like crazy and the teams that are poor cannot make their now that to me, you make that Super League it will really drain that Super League will attract all of the talent, I think it'd be very hard for a player not to be tempted by Super League presence. Right. So I really think that the Super League will eventually suck up an out all the talent from European leagues and. It will be like a like, yeah I league be in all the domestic leagues. It will be very hard to keep think, and interest. I like her much in your proposal right in your first proposal to make two teams and one that goes back to the National League the next year. But you know, I just think having twenty teams of which ten of them come from countries that I mean country's just leagues that are not particularly powerful. Not all that compelling to, to a Super League. Faye? Conflicted abo- Super League. I think you know, I think the parts of the problems of the premise of Super League. Right. I do think you need a little bit of diversity, and you need a little bit of that culture. Clash, right? I mean you need a team from Turkey playing team from Italy. I mean you know, not to in any way of disrespect to Turkish teams. I mean they've, you know, for they're not heights right now, but they've made deep runs into the Champions League before. But I think in any form of Champions League you need to have tremendous turnover because I think if if the Super League exists, and there's not a very real threat of not being in the Super League, or she me of being in the Super League next season. Players are going to get super apathetic, and you're gonna see the best players in the world start to perform poorly, because it's like, well, you know, so I think you need some sort of system that sees a lot of these teams going back to their domestic leagues and therefore those domestically battles are vital to the next season of who's going onto the Super League and who's coming back and, you know, something along those lines because I do agree that a Super League by itself, kind of its own semi closed off entity that, you know, I don't know gets reevaluated every couple of seasons or something like that is, is not in anyone's best interest in the, but it's again it's I agree with you. It's always really fun to have this, like a Turkish team the talian team. Right. I mean for the fans is phone. It's, it's really interesting. And I get the question is, is a Turkish team. As you said, respect to to the Turkish league. But is the Turkish team sort of a punching bag for everybody else in the league? Right..
"league" Discussed on Stoppage Time: Champions League
"But if Cristiano Renaldo Impala deba- can just find a way to play off each other. Well, like we so good. Yeah. Yeah. But we'll see. I think Rinaldo is coming into this understanding that he's the old dog. Yeah, that he needs these other players in order to make this work. You can't just do it all himself like the early days, a Real Madrid, so expect to expect to see a lot more link-up play a lot more patience from Rinaldo. You know where he might have just been very frustrated early. I think that there's going to. He understands that there's going to be a learning curve to get this little workout. And I think it's everyone's best interests that it does work out because you could see the the crowd and Turin turning on this team. If they just can't score, you know the, are they gonna start. Booing Rinaldo see happening. I think you'd have to go number of more games and I just don't think Christiane let's go that long without scoring. If nothing else the winning penalty at some point, just let him take it. Just like cool things down, but will. I mean it's how they started the season. We'll see if if it comes back around if they stick with it, but just on paper, if Cristiano Renaldo playing Moore's number nine and deba- behind him and then Douglas cost an Quadra on the wings. Like, are you kidding me? God terrifying. Yeah, just a real quick. Looking at the the Italian papers from from last week they've already started late. I know you which I know you have delivered to your home on on on a daily basis. I'm a huge fab, longtime subscriber. Tuttosport of course, slammed as the nowhere man already. You know, it's only been a couple of games, but they're not afraid to turn on him, you know. All right, let's do something I, you know, he's, they were all very excited to see him and you know, yes, he's looked a little bit. We're getting to see a little bit of that. Temper tantrum Rinaldo and his frustration which is never a good sign, but I'm, I just think he's too good oklaho- bounceback once once the Champions League starts, he's going to score four goals on Manchester United. He'll be fine, and that's really all that matters for them anyway. All right. Let's talk Manchester, United, are our beloved are struggling, Manchester, United finish second place in the Premier League last season, having a tough time, tough time keeping up with pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team. But this team just. Really playing. Super great. The first thing I asked myself when I was looking at Manchester United was, are they any better than the team that was swept out of the Champions League last year by severe. And what conclusion did you come to? Absolutely not. If anything, there just seems to be more chaos, less cohesion. It's like the defenders got worse as. If you can tell very down on on how can you not be? I mean, you know, it's just as you're a hundred seven, right? Which is that? I mean, we came out of the World Cup, and our good friend does Marino is just been like wining and crying. Since literally the minute the woke up was over. He was been, oh, this isn't a terrible season where things are really rough and I don't even know. I'm gonna find MARCY. Like I understand things happen, whatever you have crunch issues, there's no worse look than finding a player for spending a few extra days with his newborn child. Yeah, when the preseason in Los Angeles and like it's irrelevant and you're finding this guy for being with his his new baby, like. He's already had a tough summer. He was left out of the French World Cup squad the year. They win the World Cup. I mean, it's just things were going well for him, and he's kind of become the scapegoat a little bit this year. Now that Luke Shah's is playing out of his mind. Marito's punching renewed the new punching bag and Marshall's become that guy and breaks my heart. I think Marcial is such a talented player. I think if you're not if you gave not saying he's most consistent player in the world, but I think he's one of those players that the more he plays, he's going to play better and he's just not playing. So he's playing worse and it becomes self filling prophecy. I think he could be a world world class talent..
