The Fate of College Football's 2020 Season
"Ridden Berg thank you for taking a little bit of time after what is zoom is an incredibly chaotic day to chat with me. GREAT TO BE WITH IT'S A. Very historic and like you said wild and crazy time right now in college football, we figure out whether there'll be a season if there is who way. Adam Ridden Berg is scrambling to cover college football including the big ten. conference. For ESPN. Adam I want to start by rewinding a little bit actually from your perspective. What last week looked like because as a Friday, it kind of looked like we were GonNa have some college football. There was this path moving forward on that front and so if you had to make a chart. Of how things stood last week of who is in who is out who was on the fence for actually playing college football what would that chart have looked like? It's like an optimistic chart going back to two marsh but certainly even last week I still felt fairly optimistic about the possibility of a season. We had Yukon that announced on Wednesday that they weren't gonNA, play but they're independent. They're not connected to these television contracts like others are even these these group of five. Leagues. And then Thursday into Friday. He was hearing from sources around the sport that, Hey, this Mac meeting that was on Saturday in the mid American conference that was to be significant. That, there was a chance that at least one school was not going to play and others might be in the same boat and the whole league might decide at that point to postpone the fall season and football. It Yo it became clear that we were heading a lot closer to a you know a national postponement or at least a large groups of the College Football Leagues deciding not to play this fall. And so Adam you and I are talking at about six Oh five pm eastern time right now on a Monday so. What happened today and it will I guess what was the first thing that happened today on your feet? Well, again a lot we reported ESPN and others that the the big ten presidents were strongly leaning towards postponing that was on Sunday, and then you're the news that broke overnight was significant that this crash tag we WANNA play movement From Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Justin fields of Ohio state. Some of the most prominent players in college football were getting real traction I mean this is your became the number one trending topic on twitter for a little while that was sort of the big story overnight and then today it's just monitoring. You know what's going on in the big ten. There's been reports that they've already canceled. That's not a at least as this recording that's not true. The Mountain West. Late, this afternoon did decide to postpone their seasons. So that's the second FBI's conference after the men American to decide not to play football and other sports this year. and You specifically cover the big ten that's your beat, and that's the conference. Everyone seems to be waiting to see what move comes next. So what exactly as we speak now is happening with the big ten this evening. Right. So it appears that the athletic directors are or speaking that's not a huge deal because they talking all the time now in the League but th, there's a sense of when they'll be a formal vote among presidents that hasn't taken place. I haven't heard from many sources that vote among presidents it's imminent but in theory I, it wouldn't take very long for that to take place if the League was ready to move forward with the postponement. So I think the discussions now are regarding timing whether some of the positions have changed around the conference. You've had a number of prominent coaches speak out about their desire to have. A season the big ten Pablo has always been a league. I I've covered it for a number of years that's been largely unified on the big topics and I can't remember a time where you've had a group of presidents that seem ready to postpone for the most part. But then you have many others loud voices in the league like the coaches like the players saying this isn't right. You can't do this. This is a wrong thing to do at this point and so that that's that's a unique spot for a conference has always prided itself on your equal revenue sharing and you're trying to be unified in its messaging.

Power Five conferences consider cancelling 2020 football season
"It stands right now I mean this is what we're looking at right at this very moment that it doesn't seem like there's going to be a whole lot of college football this season and so. We're going to talk about the NFL season. Our season preview issue has to hit newsstands tomorrow as it stands right now with a lovely story by Jenny RENTA's on the cover, which is very excited. Very excited to talk to her about that and a little bit but let's just I acknowledge the weirdness of the fact that we have no idea what's going to happen the impact that this is going to have. On the NFL season on, you know they're not going to have college football You know we've seen evaluators already saying that this combine is going to be monumental because you know there might be a ton of kids without any tapeh that you're GonNa get to look at transfers who's leaving early I mean this is going to be I think chaos sort of hitting the funnel right now and everything's about to explode. It seems like the decisions from Yukon and then the MAC conference for kind of the first two moves that really got the ball rolling for the power five conferences to reconsider the season and everything really came to a head on Sunday Nights You had indications that there would be no football season that conferences were meeting to discuss this issue and then you had players saying they, they wanted to be able to play but also would. Hope to unionize, which is another significant development. So it's been a pretty chaotic twenty, four hours for college football, and so then the NFL is kind of moving ahead as scheduled things came to a head I. Think Sooner for College Football for a lot of reasons we've had players who have had. Issues, after testing positive for Cobra had entire teams that had to be quarantined. The NFL right now is in this training camp kind of locked down tight mode it's it's not a bubble obviously, players are going to and from, but it's kind of the normal constraints of training camp, and so we don't really know yet if it will work for the NFL obviously they are in a better. Position Than College football because players are represented by a union that is the big difference here, work working conditions and everything that goes with returning to work in pandemic had been hash out ahead of time, and there were clear protocols in place across the board So we still don't know if it's going to work for the NFL, but they're certainly in a better spot right now than college football. Thought. Teammate. Ross dellinger did a good job of illustrating one of the main issues which was you know there were doctors on these conference calls with the heads of all the power conferences and saying you know their studies that are coming back from Germany that. Percents seventy percent of the people who get the corona virus and their asymmetric and move on still have heart issues you know and that impacts athletes significantly You know I mean if the speed at which your heart beats or the size of your heart or whatever's going on there I mean that significantly impacts someone who doesn't aerobic sport right and who has to worry about you know. All their conditioning and all that kind of stuff and how the heart's pumping and all that kind of stuff and so I it blows my mind that we've gotten this far already down the down the road with the NFL, where in everyone just kind of looking over at college football now and saying Jesus is going to be us and it's hard not to think that it will be right i. mean the NBA seasons kind of plotting along? I mean there's Some little signs of positivity here and their Major League Baseball seems to be you know stumbling and then recovering stumbling and then recovering but I mean, we really going to have such a better idea about this and three or four weeks than we do now at I really don't know. Yeah. On what you raise is such an important point that we don't have all of the answers on the long term impacts of covert and that's why it was so silly earlier. This offseason, the people discussing like, Hey, it's a competitive advantage of athletes. Get it. Now, they don't have to worry about getting in the fall when first of all, we don't even know how long the you would have immunity from getting the virus, and then secondly, we don't know the long term impacts on the body, and as you mentioned the research coming back as indicated that for some people, it can be severe and long lasting and we know impacts the circulatory. System has neurological impacts. Those are very serious beyond just a simple virus that you get over. So it was never a binary thing where you either have a, you know a fatal outcome or a mild case. There's a lot of outcomes in between and I think for college athletes especially who are eighteen to twenty two years old who are not getting paid who are not professional athletes making this decision who also have school to deal with there just are. A lot more considerations at play and I. Think once you had conferences saying we're stopping play because we believe that it's safe. Then it really put the pressure on the other conferences I think to say, well, you know we can't make the claim that it's safe. Other conferences are saying it's not

Who is Alex Cintrón, the Astros hitting coach who instigated brawl with the A's?
"Brawl in baseball yesterday. Ramona Reynaud went right after Alex Cintron, who is the head coach for the Houston Astros, And this whole thing was bizarre to Maine. We know that there is a beef between the athletics and the Astros. Mike Fires used to pitch for the Astros was on the on the athletic still is on Lorraine. Oh, gets hit twice in the Siri's that the 2nd 1 I didn't see the first of the 2nd 1 was not intentional. But he was walking to first base is so John boy pretty much tryingto figure out what was going on. And I guess Laredo was trying to tell the picture had to throw the ball. Cintron asked, get suspended from saying his name correctly, If now I apologize, but the bench the hitting coach has to get suspended, has to get a lengthy suspension. Because he is basically egging on Lorraine. Oh, who's at first base? And it was gutless. What the hitting coach did he goes? Oh, yeah. You come over here You come over here. The guys 41 years old, if this is not A 60 70 80 year old heading coach. This is not who is the Mets pitching coach? That's your Phil Regan. This's not him or or the late. Great Don Zimmer with Pedro Martinez, where you see potentially an older person get thrown to the ground. That was not this. This a 41 year old yellow Nazareno basically, Tom come over and fight him, and he did the ultimate Gutless move off. I'm going to tell you to come fight me. But the minute when you take a step forward three for my players are going to step in front of me. And then I'm going to become Mr Hold me back, bro. Type of guy. That's the worst person in a fight. Someone that instigates the fight and then doesn't throw the punch and doesn't actually fight when someone comes charging at you because of you just being ridiculous in the dugout. That guy doesn't get popped if Joe Kelly gets it with what it was an eight game suspension. If this is it, the heading coach here for the Astros doesn't get At least eight games, then that's ridiculous. Albay have no clue how to figure this out. They'll mess it up. Did you agree with that? Then we have a heading coach, basically telling Laredo to come over and fight him. Or Laureano. Excuse me. To come over and fight him. And then he lets what 34 of his players take care of it that was weak. Yeah, it's weak and it's like extra dumb when the league is begging you not to have a bench clearing altercations, and then you instigate won as a coach, not even a player for seemingly I don't even understand the reason. And it even begins. So, yeah, you would think he's going to be in big, big trouble, too. We

Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League
"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.

"President of the United States signed two executive orders Thursday under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and a couple other justifications forbidding transactions with tiktok owner bite dance, and any transactions with ten cents related to their super. APP We chat. Each of these orders takes effect September twentieth. You might recall Microsoft has until September fifteenth to reach a deal to buy some or all of Tiktok from by dense. So there's a little bit of a gap there between win Microsoft's deadline is and when this executive order takes place. So that's the first thing to remember is they didn't ban the APPS they banned transactions with the companies which could cause apps to disappear and it doesn't happen until. September twentieth. So there's forty five days to figure out how this is going to work. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross will identify which transactions will be considered prohibited under the order. So that's going to change a lot of people are looking at the tencent order and saying, well, wait could this band transactions with other ten cent industries and so that will be important for the the definition from Wilbur Ross to decide is it really just we chat? The use of the emergency act is generally applied to terrorism or sometimes international trade and will likely be challenged in court. In fact, tiktok is pretty much said it's going to do that. The order claims the APPS access to user data including location browsing messaging payments, and search histories. Quote threatens to allow the Chinese Communist Party access to America's personal and proprietary information potentially allowing China to track the locations of federal employees and contractors. Bill dossiers a personal information for blackmail and conduct. `corporate espionage. This is considered in both cases, a threat to national security foreign policy and the economy of the United. States. So there's the justification they're going to have to find out in court. While, the order against we chat is likely to be narrow if it's not. It could affect ten cents non we chat businesses. In fact, some companies may just out of an abundance of caution decide to back off ten cents non we chat businesses just in case. And Ten, cent owns riot games, which makes League of legends they wholly own it. It's there's. Ten cent is also an investor in spotify snap. Read it.

Unikrn CEO Rahul Sood on Esports Betting, Cryptocurrency
"I have to imagine most of our audience has heard you to court at this point whether it was through the Mark Cuban investment ties to crypto currency, the websites, great content or the eastwards betting explosion. It can be hard to keep up with you to court at times you're doing so many different things. The company said Classic Eastwards. Headache has traditional sports. Offerings has ways for people to wager against their Fred has ways for Gabor's to bet on themselves by you. Mode at creates simulated competitions for potential wagers I know I missing some things even that log list what I miss about you accord that else that the companies also offer. well, I mean, look at you pretty much summarized that we are. We were at a sports entertainment platform. Basically, what we're building is the future of entertainment wagering like When you think about wagering in general, there's is various areas is. There, there's like casino bedding. There's. There's. Your typical physical location, you walk into a casino and you go to a slot machine and you do something they're on. So Las Vegas Type Entertainment, all of that is changing. and then there's like sports betting what does the future sports betting look like an online book making look like? An and Unicorn is effectively using east sports in video games to create this this new era of betting because people who play video games and who are into. East. Sports are not just you know they're not kids. They're they're getting older and you know people like myself who who's in. My mid forties. I love to play Games and I I love to bet on sports and so we're sort of building the future of this face definitely people betting on video. Fares log as video games have existed I. Certainly have bet ever since I had some money in my pocket, I was putting it down challenging by Fred's various video games being Iraq cade or back the Gabe Q. OF NFL street. If feels like a pretty natural expansion of what video games are, can you talk a little bit about? The ways that you give gamers a chance to better themselves so unique. Eastwards. Betty massive thing. I'm here base of us. Vegas. We've got monuments to the value of bedding. But. What does that intrinsic nature of betting that is provided by you modes of UNICORD's thanks. How is the company capitalizing on that? Shirt. So look you know when when you think about the different types of betting, there's there's essentially three different types one of the spectator wagering, which is like ords betting where you're betting against someone or not against your betting on a match on an event that's happening that you're watching. So for example, you're watching club nine versus whatever fanatic or whoever it is you. Can you can watch match and you can place a bet on it just like you can watch traditional sport, the seahawks versus the raiders place that on that that's spectator wagering and we do that we do that really well Then there's the skill bedding staff where where you can now bet on yourself in a video game on a game that you love to play. And no one's been able to solve this away Unicorn has The way it works is let's say you play a game fortnight or League of legends or Doda you can connect your favorite video game to the Unicorn Platform and we give you odds on yourself So you're basically instead of you betting against me met you're betting against yourself. Are you betting against the house really and you're betting on yourself and and we give you odds for you to be one of one hundred for example, in Fort Night and you can go and you can bet any can play that and that's considered a skill Within those two categories, we have different types of offerings that are very unique to Unicorn. So for example, on the spectator side, we have streamer betting where you can watch streamers and you can place bets on your favorites beamers. It's very cool. We also have virtual east sports where you can watch virtual matches twenty, four, seven of East sports and bet on those. and. Then on the skill side, we have you mode as you mentioned where you can connect your favorite video game the platform bet on. Yourself. Against the House but we also have money match where, for example, you can create a a game of NBA two K. or madden or something and then challenge someone on the Internet and and then just just bat and play. It's very cool. And then, and then the third type of betting is is casino betting, which is your traditional Casino Games. So you up those three. Unicorn has the most most breadth. of N depth of anybody in the space, we've really spent the last six years building building this out, doing it in a legitimate way doing it with full regulation mind I just thinking about where the future of of betting entertainment goes I. Think we built some some big value in the brand on and the company in the platform and is this next year is going to determine where that goes. Absolutely I want to talk about regulation a bit in the future as you

"As a matter of fact there's a couple of coming to this this game. The dudes been text me every year and we met him like three or four years ago and they always make sure to come back. And that's a is that makes not sound corny but I one hundred percent meanness that makes it worth it because we will yes. We wouldn't be shit without the people that came to hang out with us and so I'm just a I'm just an idiot. That could afford a trailer and to set things up in. I like meeting people. That's that's my only skill in this game and it's just happened to work. No it's a great. It's a great thing I mean I'd go with my wife and I wouldn't see her for eight hours. You get caught up in it. He he just got Comey. My buddy come through the. Hey Hey more shots and you just get caught up and all of a sudden it's six hours are gone but you've met fifty people you connected with them. I've got people that I met probably seven or eight years ago friends just from all in one afternoon in a parking lot so I'm super happy for you guys man. That's awesome. I appreciate that I was. I was joking with my like a couple of friends going to the JAGS game and I didn't get to talk. Hang out with them and I had like one and a half drinks. I said Dude. This game was a wedding you know. I didn't even get the finish two drinks because I was talking to so many people. It's fun work. It is fun work. Yeah and I'm going to say this and I mean this one hundred percent and anybody that's ever been there knows this that I could not do this without the wife because she usually runs the bar area and that woman is going nonstop and the other thing that we we really appreciate her for me and the other guys call her the mayor. I've actually had her a Jersey made for her. That says the mayor because anytime the parking people come over to fuck with us or any time the cops come over to fuck with us. We always direct them to her because she has a way of talking to people and she usually more than the rest of us and she also won't let up when she thinks she has a point so lovingly become. We call her the mayor of town. There you go. Yeah but I couldn't do. I couldn't do without her. Honestly she's she's amazing and people love her people love meeting here. People come just to hang out with her. So it's great dude. We gotta get you out here sometime. I know some I gotta go back one second because you talked about the dark game. I was hoping it wasn't the one I was thinking about because I saw one online recently. Where you you sit in. You Know Lake chairs that you have collapsible chairs that you put a strap in and pull them out like fresh kids soccer game. You'd sit at that height and there's a little bored in front of you with game with a beer on it and you know like cornhole across each other and you're throwing darts to try and hit that beer. So that's yeah and they're selling this product and I'm not gonNA name it but I think this is the worst idea I have ever seen and they post videos all the time people playing hit the can this is. How are you not in fifteen lawsuits? That's crazy like I kind of concern about this one honestly but I mean this one seems. It seems a lot it seems. I don't WANNA say safer because it does seem safer. I mean you're at least standing up so that if if someone throws a dart you're not just right if you if you're sitting down you're going to catch one of the balls real quick. I don't need that at all. Okay so go to de Hyphen darts dot com these guys. It's honestly it's a blast. It's a lot of fun. My Buddy at work Chris he loves the PODCAST means pissed off that we weren't recording for a while. He played it an absolutely loved it. So Oh yeah like. That's a Nice Board Soon. Really well done. They're solid is L. Definitely recommend that if you're looking for new game the BUZZER. Oh my God. Just just fantastic it. I think part of it for me was like it was kind of a Nostalgia. Effect I guess But just so great and then the other the third one that I I sorta talked about. We actually won this from the tailgate. Connect people because we were weak. One we were the tailgate of the weeks and this counts every pro team that they have every college team we we were that we had that big of a week. We won this thing called a dual ring. Daddy have you seen those games like at bars where they'll have like a hook mounted on wall? Yes and then you swing the ring towards it right. This is like a mini version of that. It's like a tabletop version. But it's got two sides in two rings in two hooks and you play. It almost looked up style where you know teams go and go and go and then the last person you know whoever finishes last so our finishes it. I rather do will ring Daddy. They sent us. It's pretty damn cool to thirty bucks. Yeah not bad right beautiful so probably made in the USA. That's it but I do I'm site fireball is. They're coming out for the chiefs. I cannot wait for that one. We've never had a rep come out. They always they're always amazingly generous with. We have ten by tens. We have all kinds of shit from them all kinds of giveaways. They gave me an awesome cooler this last year. One of those ones where you put the bottles in it and keep it cold and dispenses it. They've they've stepped it up so I'm super excited to hang out with them on Thursday and hopefully the rest of Rocco's country and I guess chiefs whatever the fuck they are coming with us and you'll have a friend my wife at least and I'm sure that I'm sure the bandwagon rolling heavy so there'll probably be quite a few people there. Oh yeah awesome awesome awesome. Yeah thanks for letting me rant there. I know I'm excited anymore. So I lived through you at this point. I sound excitable about it but it's because I'm truly as cornea sounds. I'm very passionate about it and I just love doing. I mean we did start a tailgating website so I guess we're we're allowed to get excited about tailgating. That's it. Well I gave you access to our picture. Dropbox you can. You can live through US until I get them posted awesome. Yeah Man all right. I'll let you ransom more here because this is really You know this next segment is you're kind of involved this more than I am. What do you play these days? Well so actually. I haven't been gaming that much lately because you know like I said we had the surgery so I gotta been focusing on her as I should but before that a couple of games came out that a lot of the guys on dischord have been playing ghost. Recon breakpoint which. It's getting some mixed reviews. I like it but I haven't played a ton yet. I don't know you probably haven't played a lot of the newer ghost. Recons IF AT ALL Y. Wildlands was the one before this and they're more open. They're more open world than the grocery cons that we used to play together so really big games. You know pretty much meant for like cooperative. Play which which we're so good at are so great it co-operative play. We still have not played anything. Meaner the Whitey play this together and we have a good time. So it's it's a fun game and then the other one I've been playing a lot as borderlands three. I'm a huge fan of the series in general. This one's pretty fucking awesome. So that's that's it for that and I know that some of the guys under discord there playing Madden League that they keep running twenty and they they run at fantasy style. So you pick your team which basically gives you like your uniform and shit like that and then they do. They do a little draft and they go through fantasy style and draft their team and they play seasons and they they have a blast with it. I haven't joined them yet because I'm terrible at Madden but they love it so you wanNA connect with any of US check out our xbox club. It's called the old man league and then we do have a discord that I will make sure. I put the link in the show description. Come come chat with us. It's a small little family not the most active place in the world. But we like connecting with the guys and talking about. I mean just about eighty subject. You can think of so awesome. Yeah what do I even need to ask? If you know how night I lost it again and I got it back and I lost it. No I don't know I was GONNA take. I did see this. Unnamed Goose game today that interesting but unnamed news. What does that is something. Apparently your goose and you honky people when you steal things on xbox on the switch on PC. But the headline I saw was that somebody apparently went in and stole everything. Put it down a hall or something like that. I don't know but let's unnamed goose game that reminds me of Goat Simulator U. S. Do some of the Games that we got back in the day when so we used to review video games on tailgate and we would go at the indie developers and some of these things they tried. They tried what was the. What was the worst one? Would you say that we had the bear? Remember bear game. That made me sick. Oh my God naughty barreled naughty bear yes. Whatever graphics engine they used. I was getting motion sickness. I descended to you. That's a teddy bear that went around killing people. Yeah that's exactly what it was. It was awful and then am I dreaming or did we have something that was like my virtual girlfriend. That was wasn't an APP that you had to try. That's it that's it and then but didn't they reject you again a couple of months ago or something you know. I don't know that's I don't think they reach out to me again but maybe I don't know there's still going but yeah I kind of those days are some cold out there for your time but most were just district pitch and you did a very good feedback today actually with the sending madden to the the same..

"Us at seventeen zero four three three six seven four and we do have quite a few voicemails and texts. I've not even bother looking at the dates because it doesn't matter at this point but they're gonNA get played in red clear out the closet. I mean it should be actually Kinda Fun. It's going through a fucking time capsule at this point. Oh good good. Good all right so our sports here. Yeah our favorite sport is here even though you know I mean it's still your favorite. It's still my favorites. I'm enjoying it for other reasons and I'm not falling into the goal of our our last win. But you know it is what it is. It's football's back. It's it's been a unite. Were talking the other day. It's been an interesting season for a lot of different factors. I guess yeah I mean what's what's one thing that stands out to you this season so far. What's got your I M Y? What has my is that. It's it seems like there's a lot kind of going against the grain you know we talked a lot. I think it may have even been our last episode we talked about. Oh you know Cleveland is going to dominate. And they're just they've got a lot of holes and they're not look I mean. Baker is not looking great at all. You know the. There's a lot of guys that have stepped in for injured starting quarterbacks and then there's a lot of third string quarterbacks that have stepped in for injured second-string quarterbacks and in some cases it's working out like you look at Minhsiu. I thought foles is GonNa do really well in Jacksonville. Misuse tearing it up so to me. It's just there's a lot of a lot of things I thought at the beginning that I'm not so sure of anymore including the other night. The colts taken it to the chiefs. Schumer boy I mean did they. Show us the blueprint. Do you think I came to you with that initial while moment and you kinda backed me off and look injuries and his ankle. I'm not yes I think it's because they they came out that night and I said we're going to run the ball down our throats and it worked. You know the Ravens tried it last year but they had to get away from it because you just can't stop them from scoring fifty that doesn't work and for them at work and the thing is they were losing. Db's I mean they were. Even the colts were banged up and they somehow slow the train down enough to get it done yet. Worked AND KANSAS. City's banged up now and it makes me think you know yeah. They're really injured. And that was a huge factor. But they're defensive line was questionable at best and then they just lost their best D. Lineman and I'll admit I've said it before I'm a Mahomes Fan. I like the guy. But he's not the same when you take away even a little bit of his mobility and it showed bigger than shit this last Sunday right so so fine to me. Believe me. It's fine with me too. You can keep that up. You know a week from tomorrow. That's fine by me. What about you what are you? What are you feeling from this year? So far I I like that. Some of the teams like okay. I have no attention to the forty niners. I think it's pretty damn cool that they're doing what they're doing at some of these legacy teams like the bills foreign one. I mean that's they're still chasing the Patriots but it's just just to see some different things happening I mean the AFC North as shit show AFC south. We thought to one year. I didn't think Texas we'RE GONNA win the division and the culture outnumber set comes in does what he does so. I think it's it's nice to see some refreshing names and talent and different things happening. I mean even the to your point. You know watching the Ravens steelers game. When we I think we saw Mason Rudolph soul leave his body. David third-string guy from San I in Alabama come in and he doesn't miss a beat and it's like these no name guys are just they're doing it and it's just something different now we've been. We've been blessed you and I have come up in the golden era of football quarterbacking but at some point. Okay can we do something different now and get a dose of in Baltimore Jackson but just give me something new some new battles the same teams in the top of divisions? But it's been some good moments it gets old. I mean I'm sure when your team is not old but it's like a little parody doesn't hurt you know that's the one thing that I honestly Eh. One thing that I will always love about hockey is every year is different. And even though there's always like one or two good teams when it becomes playoff time. Anything can happen literally and lightning last year. It was bigger than Shit right. Didn't we like three one seed? Go down or something like right was it was crazy and you know as much as I love basketball in the NBA. That's a turnoff. Because you hate seeing the Super Team. It's like the. Nfl is sort of getting that way with the Patriots. It's I just WanNa see somebody else. Something different when my team blows? I WanNa see just good other football when I'm watching it and and this year has been pretty damn entertaining honest right now. Even that I got the Skins Patriots game here on Sunday and that first quarter quarter and a half. They were putting them. I mean you the Patriots were. They were shook. So maybe we start to see the cracks and Antonio Brown is now. He's on twitter today. Begging follower to get in touch with the Patriots and tell them to bring me back is all that the guy's a clown but I've said it in our discord he. He needs professional help. I mean he's not he's not mentally okay he's clearly just reaching out for something because he's attitudes. Yeah I feel for him. He's gotTa get something something fixed up top because it's not clicking on all cylinders it's not while that's it puts in perspective how long it's been because we were talking about the raiders. We're making our predictions and we both said it's a matter of time before it blows up and and so far we're we're right player wise although they're not you know oddly. I think it's made the team come together a little bit. Oh yeah they're fired up and gone so good. That sounds good fucking scumbag though like you know I would never wish injury on anybody but if I watched that guy like shred both of his knees on live TV. I wouldn't even have an ounce of sympathy because he is that big of a piece of shit. Yup and I couldn't believe it I've heard at least two or three. The talking heads defending him. Yeah let that set at. Your silence speaks volumes. I actually read something that they were complaining that he was being targeted. It's like really okay. Well you kind of earned that bud if a if a player suspended and double digit numbers. He's not a victim. No I'm sorry is not to touch on something. I honest to God when Mason. Rudolph went like unconscious in while he was vertical and he just laid there. There's a I know you said this honor discord. There was a part of me that I thought to myself. I just watched a man die on national. Tv during a football game. Like He. I think I could have just been seeing shit but I thought I saw his hand twitch it did his right hand was just he lost a nurse control and it just went straight and it was. I. I wasn't joking I really. I thought potentially that it was over. I mean the way he went down it was it wasn't that hard of a hit at least didn't look like. I mean he did slamming his head on the terrorist. But when you hit the front I mean it was a solid shot but nothing that I would have expected that the lights went out. I think it just caught him right on the gym at the right spot. I hope he's okay because that shit was hair re yeah. He went home that night but he needs a little time off. Well Okay and so this actually brings up Elsa so first of all what the fuck is going on in Pittsburgh did their carts networking and this poor fuckers. GotTa try to walk off the field. Oh but then they even said there's a backup car on the other side. He didn't need it. I will do the same thing. Yes and the. Nfl came out later and said that he didn't need it. Did you see that? Come on? Yeah I know where he was. Oh if you can't physically walk off the field by yourself. You should be on a car. If you're going straight to the hospital you should be on a car or at least at least go back to the old man game really ambulance out run through about fifteen steelers and pick the boy up or put him on a Goddamn sled and slide. 'em offer something. I mean I don't know that to me if I'm if I'm anybody that's ever had a head injury in the NFL exhibit aid. You know what I mean. That's that's you're covering my medical for the rest of my life because Shit like this unbelievable. Hey we one. Yeah you switch back third string quarterback but we did it. You went into your. We're about to lose to Stanford quarterback and then you guys won. I thought this okay. Unless you're right here I think if there was any other field besides Heinz field but that wind Tucker's kick misses that thing that the English on that kick he doesn't. He doesn't Hook kicks. So I was sweating with last-second wasn't even cheer after the game. It was just Kinda really mine was a cheer but it was also like a you know. Yom Happy but still you know it it. It's a win is a win. At least we at least we WANNA fucking game. Finally I will say this. Amazingly FLACCO is not our problem not even close. He's not even like top ten of our problems. He's actually pretty steady for us. And it's we've got so many problems but you know they seem like they're growing in certain areas in our problem is we're sending an IRA every week. So that's not gonNA work out real well. So what about the other candidate? Nfl The kind where we pick players and root for them. I'm so we switched it up this year. We do have our old man league fantasy league traditional foreign one. Thank you very much. I gotTa if you knew that yes I had to defense in and on I should be eating you handily. So yeah so honest so we switched my league that I've had for fifteen years. This is the first time I could not get everyone together. And we have one role you have to draft your own team. We just couldn't do it so I thought okay we're GONNA try to handle and I had some people that were. I don't WanNa do something new. Then we got on. I love it. I don't know how you felt about it. I know you've been Fan Dole player for a long time but this is your first time doing a league. I think right yeah. I'm having a blast with it. Honestly it's it's as much as I miss a traditional league. It's a nice way to mix it up honestly because I'm in three. Other leagues in years would have been the fourth and sometimes there's a lot to manage so for me. It was a nice mix up. I like it. I like to have a different perspective. Sometimes I can get McCaffrey and cheer him on Wednesday scoring six touchdowns whereas I probably wouldn't have him under a regular league so it's I'm getting a root for different guys and it. Drains draws me into different parts of different games. That I really wouldn't care about an most circumstances. So you're you're in first place am I had no idea. See your six hundred sixty six points. Six forty five. I'm on your heels. Abed the thing. I like about vandal. Honestly is I get like a certain amount of satisfaction from picking the guy that was like super affordable but like sort of like not not diamond in the rap is probably the wrong way to put it but he was affordable and sort of a steel and then he goes off. I love it when we have. Those moments will fuller. Oh my God did you have him no no. I didn't know I agree.

"You Can Imagine. Grab a drink and stay off the lawn. This is the man league. Welcome to episode five of the old man league. My name is Mike and unle- and we are back after Once again a holiday screwed us up. We had fourth of July last week. So it's totally acceptable but we're back anyway. I mean there's always a good chance. One of his kicked the bucket in an off week so probably update the twitter more than we do well especially with a holiday that involves booze food and explosions. Hey guys good we're alive. We're here what are you drinking tonight? Oh so I I in your honor tonight. I've got a ten percent double imperial milk stout with toasted coconuts on called oats and coconut and stuff. Nitro jailbreak brewing company. Here in Laurel Maryland. God that sounds fantastic is a good at it. It's got like a bourbon like almost like an oak aged taste to it. I mean it's motor oil so jeered body. God that sounds great. Well you know what's funny about that and we must have missed each other so much that it worked out this way. I actually chose a beer tonight in your honor and for the listening audience. We did not plan this for the record. You know that I don't really enjoy as at all. Yeah well tonight. I'm drinking one. It is a lush puppy juicy from bootstrap brewing. I have no idea where they're from. I think it's here but it's six point three so not too bad but it's tasty though honestly. I mean it's a little hoppy more than I would probably prefer but I think it's good to how does it look. Is it that hazy. Kind of arms juicy look to it yes that's exactly what it is and as a matter of fact it tastes like orange juice. Like it's IT'S. It's a very very very orange juice citrusy and I like it. I mean I got a six pack and I'm glad I did because I'll enjoy all of these sure. Oh yeah some of the. I don't think you can almost classify some of those as IPA's anymore. It's more about had some the taste really just like orange juice which. I DON'T MIND DRUNK. Orange juices great But but yeah there. Are I think if you if you enjoy that? You're going to be part of the part of the club now. Body bad addiction. I'll give these ones a shot. I mean you know what's funny is like the happiness of it almost makes it tastes like grapefruit ish. So it's it's good. I like it. I'll admit that I'm glad you keep going. Well you know I will. I can't leave a six pack. Not Drink Just to get the business out of the way. Of course we're sponsored by TAILGATE.

I have to tell you we have quite the treat at the end of this episode when we went into the when we get to the voice mail text portion. That's all I'm GONNA say so. Independence Day was good for us. It does seem like the last couple of weeks. Not just for us but Some some of our people they really took advantage of our our voicemail line and I think we're going to have fun with about their time. I mean how do they expect us to fill all the time without having to other people's content won't make our jobs easier? Well sports is sort of jump right in yellows do it and say how much we don't care this time of year. I don't honestly I mean there's the World Cup that's a big deal but I'm going to save that one. Okay may have a little bit of a rant on that one. Women brought it home. So did you watch any not a second. Highlights of just. I just don't like soccer. I mean I'm supportive and everything I just. I can't get into it. I think it's cool one though I would hope. Yeah you West Say USA you and your chance. But now I really do think in Premier League kicks back on soon and I really think you've got to find a good Denver sports soccer bar because you will love knowing how much you love tailgating and that experience you will absolutely love a soccer bar on Saturday morning and bonus. It's a Saturday morning and you're drinking well eating and whatever else you WanNa do so I mean truthfully? There is a bar that I know. That's like a big soccer bar and they happen to be like Hawkeye Bar. Also so maybe I'll check it out sometime. Yes at least once. Just go into the atmosphere. You don't root for anybody just Yell Your Ticket Guy Chanson. Yeah you'll be good. Go Blue Team. Just be careful. It's not a red bar okay. When we don't have blood decrypt type deal here. Oh that probably is important not so much here but it can be over there over there being like in England. Somebody's I mean there. I think it gets less civilized as you go east into some of the old Russian territories and you know like Turkey and places like that they get a look at some of these videos. There's one called. I can't remember the stadium but they're opening ceremony for the fans is called the ringer fire. It's like welcome to hell. All the fans have flares which is allowed for some reason and they all light them at the same time so the stands are basically on fire but like road flares. Yes Jesus Christ. How is that Okay Youtube that at some point? I think it's called welcome to hell soccer or something and you'll see Turkish team or somewhere over there. People have to die right. I mean they let it happen so oh my God okay I will I will google it. What about you any good sports topics? I don't have anything right now. Not Real Cocoa Nino. She was in Wimbledon. The fifteen year old. That was pretty cool Yeah I mean baseball. Are you an awards guide? You Watch. Espn at all anything like that. I did not watch the. Sp's no but did you see what Odell was wearing so it's it's Prada which ellesmere it's very expensive and something could never afford and I want everyone to pause the pro. Podcast go to Google and find out you know. Go Odell whatever the comment so it says Brown. I don't even have explain it. It's like a vest with a pocket in front. It looks like a label like fishing of honestly one guy says you look like a backpack bre. You could fit three pounds of candy and going to the movie theater. He looks like the Employee who works behind your account of your favorite hardware store that's great or Corduroy cruise ship lifejacket. I mean it's it's it. Looks like he's stole the cover they put on you dentists before for your x Ray all my God. That's awesome. Oh a girl scout troop leader a baby. Bjorn yes you guys you guys have to go see this but the thing is he dyed his hair back to you know regular collar to be you know mature mature Odell. He's wearing whatever. This thing is so great. Go GO CHECK IT OUT. And have a little giggle. Yeah Way to fix your hair. And then when we're we're frigging like granules outfit to the don't even know. It's probably ten thousand dollars on Ballpark at that point but feels bad so so I mean all the NBA moves. Just yeah. I mean I've had. I'm happy with the nuggets. Did but now I'm not happy with the Knicks. Did but Stevens bear improved over last year. So you can ask for right. Who needs a superstar? I feel like the Knicks are like the Oakland Raiders of the NBA. Where it's like you know. They always they. Do they throw so much crap at the wall all the time that I think they're just playing like the law of averages that eventually it's going to work out it just get enough picks and keeps hit a lottery but if you can't get the number one because of the new whether lay this thing out and then you mean how they fix it. Well I mean Cold Lopes. That's great but what they had a twelve percent chance the first pick with almost abysmal record. Nambi so taking a drink to that. Okay actually so can I say something. That's probably controversial. And I and I I'm probably wrong. Ooh We don't WANNA lose sponsors. Careful bigeye no no this. I think you're GONNA you're GONNA like this. I don't think Zion's GonNa really amount to all that much I don't know I just don't I don't think he I don't think you can sustain how he plays in the NBA. I just don't I don't know I think yeah he could be a bust. I mean there's there's that fear because he is just a human tank right so you take that kind of a beating night in night out. I don't know it does get us. I don't know I really. It's it's hard to tell. Yeah I I think you could be right on that. Well I can tell you why I say that is because I. There's no doubt the kid is just a fucking freak. I mean I I like the way he plays I like him. I have nothing against him. But he's it's like being the best guy on your college football team. You know that's great. You're dominating guys that just are physically inferior to you and that's awesome but when you get to the NFL. It's like when people have that. Old Could Alabama beat Cleveland. No they fucking couldn't not even on their best day because Cleveland even as bad as they. They're full of guys. There were all the best guys on their team in college. So it's like that's what Zion's about to run into is that you know he's a big kid and he's a monster and he's just a freak but he's going to have the you know the biggest guys going after him he's GonNa have guys that are going to want to do nothing but prove him wrong and I don't know I it. Just it takes a super special player to overcome that. I think he's built for sure. I mean six. Seven to seventy to eighty. I mean he's got the frame for so he's smart you know he's GonNa be fine but they are gonna come at them I mean. No one's had this much hyped years in fuck do so. I guess I'll just leave it there. You go so there's my call. I might be wrong and people will call me bad names but I just. I don't think he's going to be a bust. I don't think he's going to be as good as he was. I.

"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..

"I mean, I think that, you know, you're a galley -tarian streak hero, actually is the warring down the luge of quality. I don't think has to be a balance between when you're talking about Superleague. It cannot be Europa league. You're a beleaguered is a geography lesson, right? I mean you go tool. This country said you don't even know existed. Ed, it's okay. It's fun. You know you end up playing but coup and places. Like bed, which might be fun for someone working on TV. But to me, the Super League is not about geography of the reciprocating. It's about getting the best quality teams and if that means that you're going to have in a ten Spanish teams in ten English teams in the Super League, but you have the best twenty teams in the world. That's what happens. And and you know finding a way to multi Baid teams to become the best in the world to be part of the Super League. I think is what makes sense to me, rather than a criterion of geography dispersion in the reciprocating. So I will like bore you know, I go a little bit against your galley -tarian push. And like to be more of an elite kind of selection criteria. So and how does that. How does that evolve from one season to the next? I mean my concern is. I don't think be stagnant. It can't be the same eighteen or twenty teams every season. But and it can't start out. I don't know to me it feels I understand. Yes. The appeal of saying, let's go and get the absolute best teams but to just kind of cherry, pick and say, well, we'll take let's see maybe Juventus, and NOP Alie, and maybe inter-milan from Italy. And then we're going to take, you know, these five teams so we'll take three teams from Italy and five teams from Spain, and five teams from but only two teams from France. It feel so it feels like when you watch kids at the park, and they're like, they're like, you know, I brought the ball so I get to decide and it's like we'll just because you have them, you know, you're really going to face a situation where it's the twenty richest teams in Europe. So why don't we have that be the criteria? How much money you have? That is the thing you know, this is a narrow were, you know, everybody thinks they are above average, like leg begun here. Everybody's smart everybody. Scancen everybody's above average in. That's not the case, right? I mean you're going to have. Teams are above and teams are below average and the Super League to me is about all of the teams that are about average, and it's not fair and clearly the teams are going to make to the top or the teams that most likely are the ones that have the biggest checkbook, you know, my I'm not Super League kind of guy and for the reason why you wanted to mention the risk of the looting the quality of the domestic leagues, but it means the champions leagues goes away, right? You're gonna have the Champions League and the Super League in peril. I don't think that that would happen, isn't it, it wouldn't the Champions League be like the equivalent of the FA Cup. I mean it's just it's, it's been knockout round tournaments that partners the Super League you. I mean, that's, that's a good view. I mean. You know, I always thought that in order to keep some domestic interest the teams in the Super League, we're still play their respective cups in their own countries, is what I mean so that they would steal remain an attachment to where they came from fair..

"But I like to start from an egalitarian point of view. I don't want people coming in. We create this Super League and they say you know what? This is totally biased. You know, look, there the let's let's pretend the Netherlands, where the tenth ranked team but, you know, look at acts, they made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League wide, aren't we included? So here's my. Here's my model number two Willie. Same beginning premise two teams from the top ten leagues. We got those same twenty teams to start in this model again I like the ten. Team. Relegation it feels right. To me. So every at the end of the season, the bottom ten teams bottom half of the table. Boom, you're gone doesn't matter. Now, you know, doesn't matter where you finish compared to your other nation. If both teams from England finished in the bottom ten boom, you're both gone. Now, the ten teams to replace them or will always be the, the champion of each of the ten domestic leagues now. So you get the taint those same ten leagues reinforcing the, the Super League but only with one team. But what I find so intriguing about this give it a few seasons. And I think we can come to an equilibrium state, which will be fascinating constantly evolving, as to what are really the best teams out there because if the Spanish leagues Spanish teams are always finishing in the top, and never getting relegated. But then they're consistently getting one additional team every season, the Super League is going to start to. Really reflect the power of the domestic leagues. And you might find that the Super League does have five or six Spanish teams in it. I don't know what are your thoughts on this one? Kilifi were six teams from one league. But I do like what are you? I know that, that, that, that's in, in your gene, the galley Teheran kind of guy, but let's just from a place where we're saying that Europe. European teams they all have something to offer. And if you have five or six let's say the two teams finish in the top ten right? I mean so now next season, you're going to have three teams if the three Spanish teams all finished in the top ten you'll now have four Spanish teams. So that's how it would over time. One time. Better because I'm gonna tell you. Let's say that rail Madrid Barcelona are the two Spanish teams and Barcelona, gums in second, right to, to Real Madrid. Not second as in first and second. But in your description, just below Real Madrid's ranking. And so you lose Barcelona in the Super League and you actually keep an Andrew lack from Belgium..

"I don't think was a player as well. Know I think that has a lot to do with how players respect you whether you actually suffer on the on the pitch. And you know what it means to really get kicked than get kicked card funeral getting injured than than you know all of what happens on the field. He to me. In order to really be a great coach of anything. Certainly soccer of being a player really matters. I thank. And so, you know for me club Dino. On the you know, Allegra are really great player. I mean great the coaches, you know, there's e-van obviously, as a magnificent player ride would offend tastic player. He was. I don't know if he's a really good coach. You know, he came into Real Madrid as the time when Real Madrid could do most no wrong circling Champions League. I'm curious to see what he's going to do in the next couple of years with this rebuilding of the team. I don't know if I can put see then really on the top list of, of coaches at least not yet, but Wardi Ward all. Yola and you and I have talked about this embarrassments of riches in terms of how great the coaching isn't the Premier League. Right. So if you think of, of the top four five six teams in them in the Premier League all being coached by terrific coaches. What I like the word Yola is just his vision for soccer unite. Thank his little bit stalbur n- or released Auburn. And sometimes, you know, certainly the Champions League in this two game series he's not particularly willing to play defensively to, to play to win by playing ugly. And I think that's a weakness of his, but it's hard to argue max with the fog that were you'll life think has changed. The way we think about sauger and how much she has been imitated across the board. Yeah. I think you're right. I agree with you that it seems to early to really speak to the Don. I agree with you. I do think he kind of was at a point where. Things were very much in his favor. I don't think it's necessarily gonna work out the same way the second time around, but we shall see, you know, it'd be very interesting to see, you know, he's already got some big signings underway. Maybe he will very well prove himself to be a truly outstanding coach, you mentioned enchilada. I have so much respect for Ancelotti. He's a coach that I think, you know, any team would be super lucky to have and then Marino, I think his legacy is very much at this turning points where it's, you know, endanger of kind of going off a cliff, but at the same time you look, you know, he's had such a turbulent last few seasons that it's you forget how much that he's a chief as a coach. And even if it's kind of ugly, and horrendous along the way you can't argue with a lot of those results. And so you say, well, let's see what he does next and that will be fascinating. You know, if he can redeem himself and kind of rea- cheap. We've never felt further. From the special one. So we'll see what he does. His Trumpian in a way, you know, he is really a figure that. Is so driven by media. He is. So a wanted to scandalise people. He wants to get on the people's skin. You know, his guy that understands the media dick impact that coach talking about Sarry earlier ride Marino, is basically the anti feces of a salary, you know marina likes everything about him. And in a way, that is not always pleasant the knife, find that, you know, this this, Colt of his personality. The fact that he wants to be so in your face really detracts from anything else that he goes on the field. You know though he cut off infested season with Chelsea, and he had a fantastic season with Real Madrid every. Thing else around, even when he was at Internacional and, you know, they lead they want everything..

Yep Yep I got you on the thing. The zip-line supply okay. Every time that commercial comes on and when I say every time I mean every single time the commercial comes on at the end of it. She belts out a little John. Yeah but she doesn't really poorly and it makes it makes me laugh every time in so I challenged everybody call in and leave us your your best or worst littlejohn impression and I'm proud to say that this week we have two of those so okay. Yeah it's better than nothing. I would like to open it up to our listening audience. Call in and let's hear it. Let's will eventually pick a winner. Awesome so yeah. I don't even think he does it in a commercial though. Now he just he just talks in his voice and says there. Little tagline kind of a letdown. It is all right. Yes I'll tell you find a so happy father's Day. Yeah you too man. Yeah I had quiet weekend. We really didn't do a whole heck of a lot Hit a barbecue joint. Hit a brewery. Really don't get anything else on father's Day so that was good so yeah did that not a rant but I got that stink artem the wife and the barbecue place well and my sister and brother in law ended up there too and they got pissy as well so we get there at one on a Sunday. You think I'm going to go house. Some smoked meat. No they had their brunch menu. So you couldn't get all the things that were good and I I got really shitty and Pissy like a little child. I wanted smoked every hour brisket and pork barbecue sandwiches right so I thought I was in my right to throw a hissy fit in the middle of a restaurant but apparently that's not acceptable. Okay did you. Did you throw the fit at the people or at Gillette? You're just a me just stopping at my chair. I can like you know a six year old. Who got his toys taken away? I mean that would piss me off to you probably. Yeah we drove a half hour up there. It's a great place and I just wanted what I wanted. I couldn't have it so when you put it like that. You do sound a little bit. Ruka saulters yeah. I am even worse. We were there after two o'clock so other people started getting the real menu as I'm finishing up not what I wanted and it didn't make it any better and it was a buffet. Two o'clock smoke. Smoke meets inside. I couldn't have okay. So not only did they say no. You can't have this then. They showed you what you weren't allowed to have in walking out the door. Y- in bounty like it was a free for all Chili Bar Collard Greens and you know brisket. Cutting station ask wasn't real happy. That's fucking awesome. I'm sorry but we got over and I was. It was all all good sadder better than could have been a disaster but I wasn't a total child so yeah I mean I would've cut shit over that too but I still probably would have thrown an equal fit. Yeah so anyway. How was your day? It was good. We went so the oldest birthday was last Thursday. And that's why we went camping. She wanted to go camping birthday. Snow Thursday Friday came back pretty late Saturday and then we kind of celebrated her birthday Saturday so Sunday morning was slight recovery and then it was great it was it was just pretty chill. I just grilled some stuff at home. We welcome to new pet into our house ago. Yeah so it was good honestly. It was just nice and chill. Yeah the pictures of that dog. You've got an ox on your hands but it's adorable. Yeah she's she's laying at my feet right now. As a matter of fact he's awesome the rescue thing good job. Don't white pet store animals people? Don't don't do rescue where you can for real. I mean I'm not. I'm not even like an activist and it's just it's the right and smart thing to do. There's just so many animals out there that need homes and probably aren't in the best situations you know. The word rescue is legit so we get to spay neuter. Yeah did okay so you have to hear like. That's Oh yeah. Yeah Yeah I think they all do. You can't yeah. They're not going to give you a dog. It's not fixed here. No make it worse. Go contribute to the problem. Yeah you have to like before they even let you do anything. You're on the phone making the appointment right there and they actually follow up and if you if you blow the appointment off they come take your dog. Oh I thought they had to do it before you got ours was now they were. They were pretty lenient but they also very clear you know if we find out you fuck around and and don't do this. We're coming to get your dog. So and they chipped them so they'll find it out. Chef get yeah all right so well. Good good weekends all around. It was great good so we'll just skip over the NBA finals. No no hold on. There's only one part that I want to touch on. Actually two things here is A. I'm free of baseball talk because that's right for past the NHL Finals now. I no longer required to talk about it I thought for sure that you remember that part I was just GonNa keep going stanton down now. No chance I have established down is that I was fucking a right like right on the money. Yeah Yeah I got game one. That was about it. I called Raptors and six. I'm surprised we're not listening to audio right now. But no you nailed it. I I give you all the credit in the world. They they stuck it to them just had a feeling about quiet and the way he was playing and I am not at all upset the SEGALLA. I mean I will say I didn't like that guy's got injured because I don't like seeing that no matter who it is well mostly but it it was just. I think I don't think it would have mattered. Honestly I just I just don't I don't think eighty was himself. I just think that their time Kinda had come and man how quickly this thing is crumbling. Oh Yeah I mean it. It's going to be not funds eason. No now the Lakers doing making moves. And it's it quick overnight. This thing just fell apart you so get your quick impression of what of what the Lakers gave up for for Davis. What are they gonNA baller? Yeah they got rid of a baller. You know about this. I'll make you wh- being worth it to you or no. I think you've got to go all in you got a window. I mean it's right there now. You see Golden State. Just the medical ward at this point even Katie Stadium. It'd be back next year but I think you gotta go for it..

"Let's bring it back. Let's bring him back. Anyway, I do like to building on what you're saying though that about sedan that I imagine. I kind of imagine that anytime his team is down at halftime. He's just like, brings everyone in is like told you about the time headbutted a guy in the World Cup. And you just kind of inspires spies everyone through that one story time and time again. All right there it is Manchester United. Any any final thoughts. You know, I think that they are. Renew can right this ship and get these players playing together. They have the talent to make it far in this tournament there they have some a great collection of players, but they're just are not playing together as a team right now. That is really the worst thing that they just like there's no chemistry out there correctly. Yeah. And so we'll see if that could change. Does. I am very low on them. You know, maybe maybe it's the wrong pairing a certain way where I don't know if we'd see the forest from the trees. We came off very dour on this on this group because we live it and we are not happy with the current reality. But as you say, I mean pulp Oba Kaku Alexis Sanchez. These are world class like some of the best. Literally some of the best players in the world. So, and you've got a coach who for all his faults has a certain talent for winning knockout round tournaments, not necessarily the prettiest way, but he's got a formula for winning then that has proven successful in the past. So those things combined and you say, sure, why can't Manchester United going win this tournament or make a super deep run, but it's it's the chemistry aspect. That's that's keeping us all. Sad. Yeah, I'm very excited to watch these matches because it's going to be roller coaster. I can already tell, and I think for all their fault and for all our faults in the league and everything that's going to be, these players are going to be at their highest on Champions League day. Now the question is, is Marino going to just try and spite everyone and cut off his nose despite his face and start MC Tomei Andres Pereira Marcos Rojo and jogo Deloitte on on Champions League day just to show all the other players that he can. That would be a shame. All right. Let's talk predictions here. What's. How you see this group. So I've got young boys at the bottom. They unfortunately don't have really have a chance here. The hardest choice is between second and third. So should we should we do this in sandwich style. You've got young boys in the bottom. Who do you have at the top of this group? Read event this. I've got you vent, so the top. So we're on the same page here Juventus at the top young boys at the bottom, how we have second and third playing out. I cannot in my in my right mind, say Manchester United Argo are gonna be bumped out the group stages. I can't. I can't do it. They have to make it if they don't God, that is just a colossal failure on everyone's part. If they get knocked out in the in the Champions League in the group stages, I can't imagine like players like Paul bar Lukaku stain, they they'd have to leave or or radio will get fired. I mean, it's just insane. It's insane to think that so they're gonna finish second version. Third, it could easily go the other way though easily. Yeah, I, I agree. Manchester United, get knocked out. In the group stage, I think Marino gets fired. Then. Assuming we're not like somehow on undefeated run in the in the Premier League. But those both happened, I would be very shocked that we are somehow undefeated and getting knocked out in the group stage. I got a faith in Manchester United. I have to I. So I agree with you. I agree with you. My heart and every I dunno, I, it's all their Manchester United in second place except for the fact that our players just seem unhappy and if for no other reason than I hope it's just to not jinx it, I'm saying Valencia in second place..

"And then I think it's probably gonna be Jesse Lynn guard, which is fine maybe. And he's like this player who's just tip toeing around making that next big jump in his career, but likes to kind of retreat back into anonymity. I don't think Juan Mata is the guy as you say. I just I think he's a good player if anything drop him a little further back. But if you need like some goals and you wanna play him in a more offensive midfield role, but I don't think he's, I never. I just don't think he's the winger that we need. So I mean, obviously I would pick. I mean, I want to start rash verd- is other than Poca our most important asset, and I think he has all the everything. We need to be a fantastic player, but he needs needs nurturing, and he needs playing time. And yes, it's true that he was naive to get that red guard. But you know all not handled in the best way by Maurino either. We've got multiple childish people foot. I don't know if you know this read, but he has won three Premier League titles which is more than anyone else currently in the Premier League by two and everyone else has zero. So suck it. Yeah. Well, that's not doing anything. I want to get your thoughts on one thing real quick here there was the big there was the big to do over the summer. Everyone. Everyone hoping Manchester United lure in Zindedine Sadan to be the coach. Would you want the donnas your coach here for Manchester United? So the way I feel about Sadat's kind of the way I feel about Carlo enchilada. He's one of those guys who just like, gets everyone in a in a room and says, you know, let's just go have fun. You guys got there and play. He's not a tactician. He just wants to he's amendment ajar. I mean at this point I wouldn't be upset if za Don came in. I mean, okay. I think he's one of pub idols. I think it would be a lot of a lot of fun to, I think pull will be be out there having fun. And that's one of the things that's really important. I think it'd be good at a good inspiration for the youth. Inspiration for you. But I think that he, you know, he probably bring a good staff with him. I think it'd be nice change. I doubt it's going to happen, but I agree. I was going to happen. I'm going to contradict myself because I agree where I said, just bring someone in to make punga thrive, and I agree with probably do that very thing. But to me not to compare in tactically to to Marino. But to me, it's similar in the sense that I don't think is ever going to be a coach at anywhere for more than three seasons. And I think he's going to be a specialist in winning knockout tournaments, which is frankly, what Marino kind of specializes in to a certain extent. I don't think I don't think the Don showed a tremendous affinity at winning the for winning Lalita. He showed very talented at winning the Champions League, which, frankly is the most important thing and this what the show is about. But I just don't see that as being a building to the future. You know that you're ever going to get another ceramics Ferguson, but you need a player a coach. I think gonna take on that role for more than three years. And I don't think Saddam's ever going to do that either. I think you know, rightfully so he's going to get kind of worn out. He's gonna put everything he's got into it, and I just don't think he's going to have that long jetty. And I don't think he's necessarily have an eye to really building a future for the for the clubs. So to me, it's it's the more current successful version of the same thing we currently have. Well, David Moyes is is still billable. Bring him back. Eating rumor the rumor that he is potentially going to be the next US. Men's national team coach. I read that and immediately walked out at my brain. I would be a tremendous mistake, please that, but I, yeah. David Moyes, never got a fair shake..

"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..

"It's not necessarily the most pivotal position, but they did lose their right Bhagwat consul to Juventus. One of the many talking points of briberies here. I think that's a big loss. No question about that. And just because our other co host, the professor Willie cats Baril will would be upset if I didn't mention it. They have. They have lost Simone Zaza fans of the game. If you were around in two thousand sixteen for the euro's was a crucial penalty. Miss for Italy in what can only be described as a a dance. Maybe in the run-up to his penalty kick, it took an eternity. It involved many, many little steps and then just a fun during miss. So I think that's actually a benefit to this team to lose our good friends. Simone Zaza considered one of the worst penalties in history. That's pretty much always known for at this point. Hey, you know what? At some point, you gotta look at your career and say, what's the way I get into the history books? And if it means, take the worst penalty of all time. That's fine. Also, of course, losing on a free transfer, Manchester United legend. We know you got an idol to them in your back closet. Read Noni back to sporting. So there you go. Came the prodigal son return from Wednesay indeed. But there you go, I think. But I think this is a good team. They certainly have the potential to be good and I don't count this team out for sure. Agree. Let's let's skip on over to what would probably be the favourite of the group you would imagine Juventus new, the new home of the man. The myth legend the quads. Cristiano Renaldo after his hundred five euro one hundred, five million euro transfer at thirty three years of age has yet to score a goal for Juventus in his first three games. I'm gonna be. I'm going to be honest with you. Read I like Juventus chances not just getting out of this group. I think they might very well win the Champions League this season. It's very apparent that they're all in after this acquisition of an, although they've got. Under Allegra. They've had four doubles in the past four seasons and so domestic successes simply not enough. Yeah, they're measured now by their ability to win the Champions League. So of course they bring in the specialists Rinaldo who's become sort of a master of the Champions League with five cups to his name. They're in a real window mode. You know, he's thirty three, but obviously he's in peak physical condition. His role has changed over the years. He's not that speedy winger that we knew as on Manchester United. He's more of a. Stay stay, stable. Number nine, target man. Yeah, but he's very effective in that role berry..

"You might get just a full on breakdown of what's going on with Manchester United right now. So we'll say that till the end Juventus obviously big dogs as well of this group, so we'll get to them in a moment. Let's start with those young starts at BSE young boys. Now, if you're like me, you wanna learn about more about this team. I give you full warning right now. Joan just start go typing in young boys into Google. You're gonna get into trouble. I think the FBI is now monitoring by my search. But anyway, the Swiss champions read how long's it been since young boys been in the champions the it's been a long thirty two years since the young boys made it to the Champions League. That's my first fact I have about them. Tell me second fact is they play at the door stadium. You. You would have that as a fact. You know, young boys winked or if I mean the jokes just right themselves of this team. You know, if if you're going to call y'all get your reads IP address. I don't associate with. I've never really been friends with him. I don't know how you got on this show off the grid is just only the dark web. Yeah, Turk with. Goodness, also not a safe place to be. All right. This was team? Yeah. I mean, not not the Swiss, not the Swiss champions of lates. We're used to seeing basil appear in the Champions League, but. All credits to the young boys, and that's not going to get old and I don't necessarily have all that much to say other than you know they're in for a fight in this group. It's not going to be easy for them. No. All right. Well, if you're if you're a big fan of young boys tweet at me and tell me what I need to know about young boys, which young boys you should be looking out for. Oh yes. I'd like to know law Swiss young boys, but you know, there's a, there's a few others in their one one, couple Irish, young boys. You know, I want to move on. Cut it out. Just in show's been canceled anyway. Apologies if offended by all that it's it's late at night. We're getting a little loopy here. But anyway, this this team certainly in for a fight. I think we're going to be a little bit out class, but I'm sure they will be extremely excited to be here and to welcome the likes of Juventus Manchester United in Valencia to the Wankdorf. All right. Let's talk Valencia Valencia. As you say, it's. Severe, not in the Champions League this season like they were last year, but Valencia, you know, you always have that kind of next level to your Spanish team and they always complicate things Barcelona, Real Madrid, even let's go Madrid, usually a class above, but teams like Valencia severe. These are talented teams and Valencia are not to be taken lightly. Valencia has been kinda out in the wilderness. The past couple of years they've gone through some changes haven't been able to keep a manager been able to lead them to sort of arrow stability who can who can forget the Gary Neville era of Valencia. Whoever thought that was gonna work out that like Gary is going to lead you. It was going to lead them to glory. I mean, like, yeah, he could barely speak English. They, they're trying to get him to lead a team in Spain. I mean, come on. But they've got Marcelino in there and he's kind of brought them back given some stability to their squad. Their transfer business. The summer was good..
