They were you went through with your experiences and you were part of the Los Angeles teams there over at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and what was that experience like versus what you see now with this state of the art staff? Will. I went to Ucla played in La Coliseum for forty years, and I left at the eagles were six year came back home I was back there where I played football in college. It was great to be home. You know the history behind historical Los Angeles. Memorial Coliseum by had Olympics there had this yet. That USC played in a Ucla played. They're also. And but you know. It didn't take long to realize. How old APP stadium was you know? There was an emotional tie for me because of that's where it all started for me, basically would plan linebacker for UCLA. But you know when you when you're in your games over and. You hit to the showers, and not all showers work at the same time. If people standing in line and you would hear some of my friends. They came to the visiting locker room. Rely On. Craze man here. We are standing there waiting to get in line because this shower head wasn't working. Then when we get, there got a cup your hands for a couple of and you can get enough. Has You desperately base. There was a lot of things going on with that. La Coliseum and you know when I paid for La Raiders. Wasn't really are stadium I. Mean it was you know we played there? And so the USC also played there too, and now. The loss biggest rate is. The Davis family mark is mom. They have their own stadium now. That means a lot to me to know that that's. What I wanted. And it's there now and the beautiful Al Davis towards. Know that I've seen from social media and Davis Way, and so these young guys. Now they have their own home is their own home. You know then then you get to go to headquarters when I paid for the Los Angeles radio. We Will Elsa Gondolo elementary school at Al. Takeover, okay. We're sitting there talking about lunch dinner. Okay? We're sitting in the meeting the eight o'clock and reading here that food truck kit that Horne did. They didn't did they? Didn't he? In turn off. The projector re go outside and get are less I'll get our breakfast and it did the same thing unless. Nowadays you know the gentleman. He's done athletes. Facilities now they have their. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner. That's what they would like. They have own cafeteria, Curia and one of the big differences between. Kids nowadays as I call them young men nowadays than we're back back in day when I play. They have personalized things that are made for food for them. You know you get a blood test, and then you know they run a blood test on you. See what you'd deficiency. Just redid. Do you have your own? Concoction combination of things, did you have they make for you to make sure that your performance at the highest level so? That and you know, and here's an is exciting because. They're in a brand new facility brand new city. The the people, las. Vegas been waiting for the raiders to get their against what they ain't got to wait. No, they are there and. The trips that I've made you know doing appearances. For the raiders into Los Angeles Las, Vegas is at. As overwhelming dislike. Excitement. In anticipation of them coming there. I've experienced that so I can imagine what it's like now and here's the other thing. I people need to know that the raiders of always been involved with community. The always they love. They love their fancy appreciated bands, but you know ever. Since they made the announcement that they were going to be in Las Vegas, we've had alumni that are there and those that are up your northern California. We've flown in air to to do appearances and just get connected with the community because it's their team now is it is the loss biggest raiders and they've done a lot of great things anywhere everywhere. They've been and this whole thing. Vegas is really really exciting, so Jerry. I wanted to get your taking right now. On the linebacker core that the raiders have in place right now. What you've? Seen from the past couple of years now that GRUDEN's been back in the second run here with the raiders, and what you expect, now they have Rodman Ellie on the D. Line. They've got a lot of talent here in the linebacker core. They brought in cory. Littleton, who's really, I think going to be kickstarter to that defense and Nick Wykowski. Let's talk a little bit about what you current linebackers are going to bring. We know what to us. You did a great job I. Mean You? What you just said is exactly what I would say. I mean I'm excited about the addition Iran, Marinelli. You're talking about legend you're talking about. The man knows what he's doing. You know what the deal is when you're playing. When you plan a game. Is the coach's job to put you in the best position at you can be an to be successful in a play. Okay, and that's what we're nearly. US Okay is up to you as a ballplayer individual. Make sure you execute it. and. It is a great feeling. Is Welsh for me and I'm sure it's everybody. Every imprinted gave when you know that that deepest call. That's the deepest, but just in case is not. We have an audible. We have a check off. You know we have an adjustment. Do we can make this, so we are? GonNa always be put in a position to come out on top now. It's up to the individual to make sure that. He gets to hustle and proper technique, or you take care of your responsibilities. There's a lot of that mentally. Go into that and you know with the accurate. You know this offseason. Littleton and and and and I'll just GONNA call him. Nick K.. Has, people I'm excited to watch our defense I'm excited. Watch football team. 'cause. We got something going on often society. Is Getting even going to get even better, but defensively speaking, you know it's an attitude, the attitude that you have planned. You know and didn't play. I did play offense in high school and that kind of stuff, but I do know you have to have the right mentality and right attitude when you're playing defense and these guys right now on the loss biggest raiders defense, it should be extremely excited because they will all be in sync. Nobody play like a symphony orchestra. They'll be doing everything together in as long as they take care of what they have to do is going to be really exciting to watch their defense runaround. Fly around and Hippie. Running and flying that's GonNa well in in various positions. As you just touched on there that you played, you were wide receiver back when you started out. Yeah, and also nose tackle I. Think I had read. Sue Get them Heidi. I know I. Do my research. When when when you first started on then you convert it I believe it was jed huge. That is attributed to saint something like I'm going to make you the inside linebacker. You're going to be the play caller now and this roles and be important, because I think it was quoted as saying and correct me if I'm wrong, the people think black players are not smart enough to be the play caller. I mean Siamese music that lit a fire under his well. Can you tell us a little bit about that experience and how that just makes? You like feel on the inside way to go hide way to go great job. You know what? Yes? Because when I moved from wide receiver, tight end at UCLA and became the inside linebacker. My coach Jed Jed, Hughes Dr Jack Hughes you know. He asked me if I wanted to call us signature on like I didn't know I had no idea never played that position before he said with US inside linebacker called defense of cigarettes because he has to make all adjustments. And I'm like okay. He said we'll. Ask You said did say that you know a lot of people don't feel the black ballplayer smart enough to handle that position. That's why there's not many black quarterbacks. Remember going back into the seventies now women but I'm talking about. And in that position have untold enough to make sure that everybody's a right position and we eat only that they didn't. They lack ballplayers smarter play inside linebacker. That's when I just I buckled down and infuriated me. It pissed me off, and I had a point to prove. That I could do it now. Remember this. I never played linebacker before my lash right NAPA. Know and I was able with with his help to learn the position to be able to call it defenses, and I took a great deal of pride in knowing that I am responsible for making sure. Everybody's in the right position I have to look into the if somebody's out of out of place land. I'd have to walk up their sophomore. Bud or stream out whatever was and that right there I accepted that responsibility even though me, making sure that somebody is if they're out of position, I had to go leave my position. Put them in their position and sometimes the ball. We get snapped. But before I got back to my position, but that's okay. I found a way to get to the tackle. But. Most of the time. Yeah, I think that's kind of understatement of your career. We've got to take a quick break and we will be right back. Stay tuned for more here with Jerry Robinson. Healthy Gut means a healthy.

To create a better teasing experience, first time shooters. Drink a favor dot com. What do you think on the offensive side of the ball for the raiders? You're talking about these guys flying on the field on defense. Henry Rugs. Make for that. I I got so excited about that because it just reminded me of back in the day when I was a little kid watching the Oakland raiders. In the seventies watching. Clip branch just world class sprinter just speed speed kills, and speed was always important to out is important to mark to and to get the right of speed and the right person with the right attitude with a winning attitude, and I'm just I'm excited about our office. I'm excited about our whole team. You know we have people in position this year. We're another year end in an you know, and the more the more years you get in more familiar, become with the offense defense, and you know I, it really makes a really big difference because it takes less time to go through the metal adjustments and you know. And it's easier once you become familiar with your offense. A scheming and deeper game makes of that either, but you know there's a lot of. A lot of excitement, the words Las Vegas Raiders Las Vegas itself generates adrenaline. Man these guys are coming to the. They were part of the Lost Vegas Raiders. They're part of a new state of the art. Allegiance Stadium! They're part of the new headquarters. All I know is the big bad suck sitting out there I mean you know what people flying into going to be like Dan is that you can't miss it fine, and you cannot miss it, and I think that's the way it was always meant to be so that in itself all this new stuff and with. Jon Gruden and Mike Math, I mean I love that combination that you're talking about two of the hardest working visit he used to say back in the day to James Brown. Was the hardest working man in show? Business Will Jon, Gruden Mike May are the hardest working dudes in. Football and they're on the same page and they have a game plan, and sometimes what happens is you know? People may not like your game plan. Your Basma I like it because the results may not produce right away, but there's A. They're the reason that the steps have been taken. You know the ones that have been taken. That's why they are the way they are. And raiders are just getting better are getting better like I said Las Vegas you talk about an Adrenalin rush. Oh, I got. I can't wait. For these young players to experience the the fandom and excitement of. Course Ball Raider nation is already in Las Vegas, and they come from all over the world from London from Canada from from from new. York and that excitement in a brand new stadium that they can call their own is going to go a long way. I had read. They know you had these very humble beginnings Santa Rosa there were times where you didn't have shoes. And it leads you to become a part of the board of directors for shoes for kids thinking. Tell me I've just I've just been Promoted to. Vice President of shoes for kids now. I am president issues for kids and my co-host host for. The podcast that I do the podcast is called people doing good podcast Mariah Volk. IS THE CO host? and. She is the founder of shoes for kids and when they I was sitting there, I went to a fundraiser. Out Watching this video of this kid up there with. Like duct tape electrical tape when he shoe. And it just reminded me of. Me Back in the day you know not that we didn't have shoes, but the shoes. The tennis shoes that we got. We had to keep those tennis shoes all year long, which means that? Get in the beginning of school. You're okay. You want to play basketball. You'RE GONNA. Play basketball in those shoes or finishes fleshing have to wear those shoes out the basketball season and a lot of wear and tear on it and I. Just remember what it was like a child for me to get a new pair of shoes and shoes for kids. All about you know providing new nuclear shoes. You know shoes for for kids that. Don't have them to come from the low income, families of single moms and single families would. Parent whatever that may be and that's why I got involved. Because you know the kids. Are you know they are here and it? Just it just touches my heart and a smile on the kids like I said my podcasts. People doing good is another thing were Mariah and I decided bring positive. You know two people to listen because you know for the last several years and a lot of negativity, a lot of negative things, and now with the Kobe by team. And with the. Situation. With The justice system put it that way and police brutality, and you're all boy, and that whole thing right there People need to hear. Good things, but they need to your real things you know, and so we've had opportunities. You know this month we dedicated to black lives, matter and I'm on air. You know a couple of episodes on there will actually opened up and ensured my experiences growing up as a little kid. you know the racism and hatred that I experienced, you know. Trucks trying to run off the road me and my brother, and some friends and we're going to feel and. The only thing I remember thinking about it I just I was listening for a gun shot. You know you know we're GONNA, die or not in his truck for you know for the people. With a gun rack and a confederate flag debate that kind of stuff right there you know and you know so. Anyway people doing good podcast, you're GonNa hear some interesting stories and I had a chance to open up and the sheer things happen to me because it's happened to. A lot of people of color you know and you know, and and and the thing of it is now if you clean the sixties and twenty twenty. Everything's been videotaped We are people in the world is seeing what has been happening for years, and they're not putting up with it. I call it that younger generation that social media. generation and You know I love it when you see people. All Color Standing Together for justice that are done in A. Blatant murdering of certain. Of Black. People and I love it I mean there's wipe this. As native Americans are Spanish people out there, and they are making a difference, because also the platforms, the athletes nowadays and entertainers They're using their platform to make a change in their realizing that. The only way we're GONNA. Make a change, we. We can talk all we won't back into. A lot of talk you know, and not people got hurt and and and and abuse, but now they're realizing not only we're. GonNa Talk. We're talking about changing legislation. We're trying to change rules and laws and stuff so a lot of them were talking about this during vote. If you don't like what's going on, and you can't go along in this world, you know we have some some horrible time. We have covert nineteen going on an. Intel vaccine then going to be safe, so. Anyway. Those that are less not not vote. You know what you you know. If you're old enough to go out there and make a difference, make your vote count. You know if you don't like what you see, you know what get somebody in there. Whatever whatever branch of politics whatever it may be cannot do make a difference in our appreciate those that standing up and are willing to go through Stan. Hand in hand side by side shoulder by shoulder and Kiessling march in protest. You know to get their. Their point across, but there's always some knuckleheads coming in somewhere doing some crazy. You know you got some looting and you got some burning. You got this and that and it's not those people that are peacefully marching. There's people that mindset is already okay. This is my opinion here. You know we got a mark. Let's go start this. Go steal some. There's the group of people still sick out there, and that's not the ones that are protesting. What's happening in this world and in the side right now? Tyrel Williams. zeta-jones Trent Brown. These are just a few the raiders off the top of my head that have already been using their platforms, and speaking out the raiders. Themselves have gone into June, eighteenth official holiday. How does that make you feel inside the alumni of this organization that they've gone to do that? God doesn't surprise me at all I you know. Know. What that it brings great pride in? It makes my heart feel good, but you know what I know what it's like to be a raider I know what it means deep down inside. You just go back and start checking out without doing back in the day.

You know they don't see color well, they do see color silver black. That's what they see you know and that's the way it should be. You know they treat. People ways the way they should be treated, but I'm glad you mentioned some of the players names that are getting involved. From Different Sports, all sports, you know and his big thing. What is so different to me? I'm sixty three years old. Okay, NO MAKEUP BOSS! I'm not trying to scare anybody underlying brothers age. Twenty twenty back in the sixties. Things were different.

In a sport predominantly white. He's upset and frustrated with seeing all the confederate flags flying around and what it stood for. He goes to the head of NASCAR tells them how he feels. WHAT DID NASCAR DO? They banned confederate flags in their arena. Events that is a huge huge move especially, NASCAR. You're talking about basically down in the south, and and then what happened. Was You know the? There was a news to popped up in his garage. You know and next thing you know. Talladega down there at the race track you see him pushing his car and his competitors and his teammates. The amount of people that were supporting him. At that point was it was it was it was moving? It touched my heart especially when you know Richard. Petty you know the owner legendary Racecar, NASCAR driver, the owner of the Basic Chaim. Areas Eightieth Semedo and he was really concerned about ever coming outside with the Cobra nineteen going on, but he said. I am coming out today or tomorrow the next day because I want to hug my driver. And when you saw it on TV. Bubbles was crying. Everybody was crying. It was really emotional, and it was a big step considering the arena that they're in. You're talking about NASCAR I mean you got to flex land. You GotTa American Flag Cutter Competitive Black Climbing so to me. That's a big change. I'm older guy in any anyway.

How LAFC Made Los Angeles A Soccer City

"In for two all season true it's arguably the most anticipated game MLS history the wanders tomorrow night is the game that soccer fans organization because the fact that they've set all these records this season is even more remarkable if you consider that they've only been in the League for two seasons really driven this team in mentality and with play to heights that I think a lot of people felt like were impossible to reach in terms of okay so josh Elliott has done things this year that have just never been done before I think the best regular season we've ever seen from club see will face the galaxy in this new postseason format one win and you advance one loss and you're out this La rivalry it's only two years last la dodgers town the Lakers town but could be soccer town to from wondering and the Athletic Ninety eight galaxy had with eighty five goals in a season they lead every single offensive category in the league this year they were number one they also had the league low in the statistics numbers points left and right you see this team thriving and so I want to step back for a second and talk about L. AFC as so where does the L. AFC story began the story of AFC begins with the death of Cheese USA MLS Commissioner Don garber and outside Ed or tied they set the record for points winning the supporter shield their first trophy they tied a record that a lot of people thought would never be approached the nineteen AFC this team with celebrity owners a rabid fan base and a Mexican superstar that have set all sorts of records issue and all this has made almost immediately the people who became the driving force behind l. EMC said hey there's an opportunity here for us and she is a very famous club team in Mexico and the idea with them old but it's really intense and it's unlike anything we've seen in the league so far so today we're going to talk with the buttocks Josh Gross About Ellie new record thirty four this season he's the all time goalscorer for singles now with L. AFC he is just UNDERSCO Davidson it's Wednesday October twenty third and this is the lead it felt like aw in major league soccer there is the full time whistle on a historic afternoon for L.. AFC You can go up and down the list of the records they said I say this is our club but it never quite translated the league will be implementing a new strategy for the Los Angeles market which they were the second team in Los Angeles when they disappeared in two thousand fourteen goals conceded and you see that on the field and that's a direct correlation with their dominance no most every other category and they've of course been led by the incredible play of Carlos Villa lack bid for a hat-trick dairies bend to create like an American version of this famous Mexican team but it never really caught on exactly never caught on there were chiefs fans who also became fans of chief or so much I think there's a lot of that manufactured in America in the chiefs USA and the galaxy stories indicative of that so two thousand and fourteen Cheetahs Fold Aleksey and they had some rivalry moments there was some competition between the clubs on the field but it it never felt like in La Product at all owner Valley FC we don't use the word franchise we use the word club and we mean it he's an NBA guy he's doing data analysis for Espn about the NBA watches in Portland and so he felt like there's something real here you can engage a city engage a population that can really get behind the team so he's thing great was there is something about the emotion and the past we're not only business guys in a boardroom but were fans die hard fans who had the passion that a team like L. AFC needed Portland Trailblazers at the time that's where his love of soccer came from in the mls there are moments among some certainty why there's rivalry England's premium intercity joust never dims understand the history and the moments what what should we put forward in terms of what we're trying to say what we represent what should the team name be like literally the very beginnings of this thing and there was a couple of successful seasons that they had on the field but it never made any impact on the sporting community may always played second fiddle third maybe fourth fiddle to the fans would have never had a chance to sit in on any other sports franchise so there there's a pretty famous moment where they sent the group of their earliest supporters over to Germany certainly the the soccer culture in Portland Soccer City USA come out and shine in his first example of what America could be was born under his experience watching I'm fine people who have the same kind of idea that this is something that we can do we can bring in Los Angeles their whole ethos is collaborative and Germany and it's Kinda gets misconstrued of like Oh fans learn how to be fans by going over to Germany that's not how it was but the supporter culture is really the WHO is build a club that looks like a World Club a global club not an MLS club and essentially that also means the supporter culture has to be ingrained during the mission was go look at what this club is doing go look at what these fan base is doing now Dortmund is famous for having very passionate very passionate fans handle what's happening in Carson a fan base without a team a fan base without a team really and they included them in the collaboration process what should we look like from a color perspect- to really get off the ground and have any kind of meaning and they're actually listening to these fans it sounds like listening and and begging them to participate in meetings that immediately engaged the chiefs you have supporters who still exist who on their death bed will will never ever root for the galaxy there's just something about that they just can't yeah I think you'll see a lot of that sort of this force construction of a rivalry around MLS You know you look around the globe and you understand let doormat that's quite unique super high incline seats and so I think it was like we want to somehow replicate this in the city of Los Angeles what L. EMC is trying to as part of the club and it really is not just we're the club and you're the supporters and yeah we're GONNA come together on Game Day it's much more cohesive than that Sir Tom and as you mentioned some guys get an idea they see an opportunity you know the the main driving forces behind the early days Tom Penn who is now the president of L. FC in the no no leaders just everybody clapping and seeing but we gradually started incorporating more of an Italian or South American style with a Capo it gets this idea starts to build a kind of collaborative movement who are some of the people that he brings on board to help him with that the ownership group is a collaborative took club in Dortmund Roussy Dortmund who's one most famous clubs in Germany they sent their own fans over to Germany they sent their own fans over I just amongst the people who have money vested interest right I mean it's collaboration of how do we engage the population wash Angeles how do we bring that energy that was important to Los Angeles and so want to Madrid to CYO classical is one of the biggest matches in world football I look into why they're going to need so apparent and you don't have to dig much to find the real reasons why people teams that feel like you can be watching soccer in any corner of the world in Portland in one of those places we're very much an English style supporters culture Just mix of entertainment sports people you know they they really wanted to sort of have that celebrity pop you have figures like Magic Johnson just like girl I don't know what that means exactly but thank you please don't abduct me after this will Ferrell's in the largest reporter section in Europe it's known as the Yellow Wall Vast Yellow Wall nearly twenty five thousand fans stand behind the goal going to Portland Timbers Games and he's just kind of blown away at the support that they have any thinks there's an opportunity to create something like this in Los Angeles exactly he essentially is like he is all on board as one hundred percent in this he's in the stands screaming like the maniacs out there in the thirty to fifty two and then they were believing in this product they were building and then it seems like one really important decision that this leadership group ends up making is the location of the stadium and the design of the stadium so person who's involved I think what this team and what this entire movement is about as creating memories for Families Nomar Garciaparra and Mia Hamm or players remember when go to anymore and Tom Pen and ownership group saw this is the perfect location for their stadium and they managed to pull it off this is the home of La Clippers during some of the darker days of the clippers franchise in Los Angeles this was a place that meant a lot as far as sports went but we were able to turn the Lakers around into a championship team we're going to do the same thing with this great soccer team L. AFC Tony Robbins was an early fun with him from what I remember in the early days at press conferences and things like that magic and I have a a little weekend club where we drive around Los Angeles on mini excavators okay as things happen on you know in South La and that particular corner of MLK and hoover rundown it was not really a place where people wanted out he's actually invested he really wants club to move forward and be a part of the city and he's an SC guy no one was really playing a role here they were being themselves it's you know fourteen miles from downtown Los Angeles and that's not the slamming what's happening in Carson or anything else it's a great location it's a historic fight beautiful beautiful soccer stadium built specifically for that purpose in a part of Los Angeles that I think people would have felt like why would I want to go down there history I mean the sports arena was opened in the late fifties Mohammed Ali fought their ears clay entering the ring in Los Angeles California. I mean you're talking to step on the pitch it's beautiful but more importantly be that kid again every day when you walk in every game you walk into the Stadium Bank of California Stadium is a wide open facility it feels very airy and bright feels new but not overbearing it has plenty of Bank of California stadium is on the grounds of the old sports arena which is right next to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum really important part of La Sporting culture he's on broadcasts just relentless energy drive where does it come from I think it comes from Draymond Green. Tom Was a Portland based guy and he was working for the for new stadium which they've now couched as the Cathedral of soccer in Los Angeles so you just described the stadium a little bit and what it's like to be there for a game in piece of what the entire experiment was we're going to bring this really unique diverse community together how can we do that we have to have a place where they can congregate and that was bank of color occasion for boxing and there's been plenty of amazing moments for soccer and now the chargers play there in the NFL but it doesn't feel like Los Angeles and I think that was bells and whistles really but it doesn't feel that way it's not ostentatious any kind of sense the stadium does have nice areas there's a bar area with this Lazy Little Pool that have you know but it doesn't feel segregated any kind of way it all flows together you can walk around the ring of the stadium entirely the thing that struck me most from my earliest experiences there was close to downtown though and that was one of the that is one of the criticisms of the L. A. Galaxy is that they play very far from from downtown Los Angeles Yeah one of the pieces of the league they would they would kind of entertain the the media and fans at these hilarious press conferences we got will Farrell we got welfare eh early on was if you're GonNa do this if you're going to build the stadium it's important that it's in the urban center the Cultural Center of the city and Carson where the galaxy play is not it's a suburb feel that way especially what's happening the north end in the thirty to fifty to the thirty to fifty junction with the League but you know they are very keen on understanding that we represent all the best things of the city city together and I must say that supporters section Kinda looks like a huge party the whole game I mean nobody sits down for the entire match totally discreet way to get in touch with the real doctor who can prescribe real medication with Roman you can get a free online evaluation in ongoing care for E. D. mm-hmm experience it's absolutely city coming together sitting together celebrating this this team together I've been going to sporting events in Los Angeles my entire life and it doesn't that regardless of what neighborhood you live in Los Angeles you are sitting next to someone in the stands who either lives that neighborhood or live somewhere else in the city but you're all part of the scene choose the Los Angeles Football Club Supporters Group they're actually their own independent group separate from the team they govern themselves they have elections you know it's very much in the mould it's a big party and it's much more flowing free wheeling and fun now passions run high and things happen and if have supporters groups that you see around the world and why are they called the thirty to fifty two they are called the thirty to fifty two because that is purportedly the number of seats in the North End I think the number of seats technically early with someone that I think people really early on to like Oh what's the Will Ferrell doing around here and then you get the sense of he's just not a name or a face he's just not lending sort of his person Oh this is your home Peter Guber extremely well known executive in Hollywood associated with Golden State Warriors in La Dodgers and welfare of course welfare will will ferrell please a little bit different but maybe that's it was mapped out of his thirty to fifty two and so they sort of adopted that it's the spirit of all of us in this section together we represent the there are moments where their tempers flare up this is policed in house it really is thirty to fifty two governments itself in conjunction with the team let's talk about the team a little bit their first signing is certainly their most famous and best player cordless failure he used to be tough to tackle but now there's Roman complete an online visit today to connect with the doctor and take care of it go to get Roman dot com slash the lead is brought to you by Roman there are some things we avoid talking about because they're just uncomfortable in maybe all from the comfort and privacy of your own home if the doctor determines medication is appropriate for you Roman will ship it to you with free two day shipping I think he felt a responsibility recognizing that he is the best player on this team so the other leader of this team is the coach Bob Bradley who opens there and there's a beautiful sweets and all sorts of things that you would expect I've heard that there's like a bar or nightclub section up high to or a Lotta the celebrities to get started get Roman dot com slash lead Mexico who has all the pressure of the world on him to perform and doesn't seem to care doesn't seem to care about performing for anyone let alone himself with an edge of yeah very mellow and Bob Bradley was the coach of AFC wasn't immediately voicing the captainship unveil he kind of pass it around Ashley lead to get a free online visit and free two day shipping that's get Roman dot com slash L. E. A. D. for a free visit one of effort and yet he's beating people around the edge he's dribbling past people and he's lofting these gorgeous passes and knocking in these left-footed goals that are just incredible but everything because we're afraid there might not be an answer to our problem eady is one of those things but with Roman is easy to talk about Roman is a simple safe and the game feeling that collectively we we dictate the terms of the game was we created chances when you come off the field so you have seen this isn't a story you didn't read the athlete it stays with you parents there's certainly a nightclub section afterwards on a game night when they win which is most most nights that that stadium you have long lines to get in it does not so different than Hollywood different places but quickly it settled on villa and I think he welcomed that this was not an attitude that he would have had an in Europe this was

Los angeles native havi beset out was narrowly confirmed by the senate as the health and human services secretary yesterday on a near party. Line vote beset. I will be the first latino to lead the agency which includes the national institutes of health the centers for disease control and prevention and the food and drug administration.

Many pointed to his past comments and record as attorney general of having led more than one hundred fifty democratic legal challenges to trump administration policies in vaccine news data shows that nearly one million californians have gotten a shot in the past two days. It's a sign that the state's uneven covid nineteen vaccine rollout is ramping up. In fact according to data compiled by the times the last four days have seen the four highest single day. Totals of vaccines administered to date. It took roughly two and a half months from when vaccines arrived. Mid december until early march for ten million doses to be administered statewide the california continues to lag behind other states in its vaccination efforts to date about twenty three percent of californians have received at least one vaccine dose proportion that ranks thirty third out of all states and territories.

The company said it would provide an estimated one hundred million dollars for the hollywood skyway. The tram would have taken people on a six minute. Ride more than one mile up the back of mount lee to a new visitor centre. Supporters hoped the project would reduce traffic congestion in surrounding areas from visitors. Trying to get a glimpse of the sign but concerns about safety and feasibility proved too much for the movie and tv studio which is owned by a t for these stories and more visit times dot com. The news moves fast from stocks to sports and weather reports anything could be in the day's headlines but a scoop even more surprising state farm has surprisingly great rates on car insurance. They offer the coverage. You need at a wallet. Friendly price now. That's newsworthy mike. A good neighbor state farm is there.

Mason and Ireland (HR 3)

"All right. Time for fast track would you this every day? At this time I got questions for Brian. He's got him for me. They don't necessarily have to do with sports as always fast track is brought to you by Mason in Ireland, now we always begin with a ceremonial coin flip. Let's make it easy. Brian heads the Toronto. Raptors knock off the warriors and take a three one lead back to Canada tales Golden State bounces back. Call it in the air. I'm gonna go tales. I think with Klay back they'll squeak out a win. Yeah. It's tails, fast charity that means you get a choice go. You can go first or you can defer I will go first. Okay. All right. So yesterday, I spent the day at the Stanley Mosk courthouse downtown here a hill, and second, I believe it is a jury duty actually called in into the panel. So I did my one day of service and I'm done for the year and whatever but in honor of that I have a legal and jury themed fast track set of questions starting with this one, a witch. ESPN LA personalities would make the best and worst foreman were they to sit on your jury who would you want? And who you who? Would you not want? Okay. So I've actually been a foreman. I feel like I was I was very although I will say this. Am I crazy? Or did this guy do it? No, I guilty. I literally seven seven right? No. It's opened up the phone Ryan. I literally tried that. I said, okay, we go back in the room we elect to Forman I save nobody else wants to do it. I'll do it. I get named foreman. And I say, all right. Let me start with a question. Is there anybody in here who doesn't think this guy's guilty? And like half the room goes oh, I think he's good. And one guy like right out of twelve angry men goes, you can't do it that way. And I went what do you mean? He goes we have to deliberate. We have to go over the evidence. And I said, what evidence, would you like to go over that would indicate this guy's innocent, and he goes, it doesn't matter? We have to deliberate and he made us. So we've probably spent half an hour deliberating maybe go through, but we still found the guy guilty, including the guy who made me delicious was these a procedure guy. Yeah. So I think I would be excellent because I would get right to the point. I'm trying to Sodano so argumentative that I think he would take the other side just to be different like, wait a minute. I actually think there's a chance, this guy didn't like to this day Sodano insists the Lakers protest that took place across the street was a huge success because they tracked and TV. Karen, he will not. Mad because the TV cameras filmed that being a huge failure. He will not admit otherwise huge success. So I think I would be the best incident would be the worst Greg. What do you think I definitely do think you'd be the best, you'd say is this something or nothing? There's a knife in the guys. What are you, I would get us out of there? The fast. Definitely, would I think the worst would have to be see- wouldn't be Travis might be key. I think he can be argumented. Well, it's also soon what I actually think that LV would be the best because he can argue anything. And very very well yeah but you don't necessarily want want the other side being argh. But then he would be the worst. Person, my, the defendant or am I the prosecutor because if I'm the defendant, I want Trudell because Mike is overwhelmingly bent towards or fairness. He's so conscious of being fair and level headed and even and all that, that I think he would take on the right. He would be a guy who was your twelfth. Jurors who say we have to deliver, if I were the prosecutor, it'd be wide want key who'd be like let's get the bleep out of here. Right. Like if Ireland wide just someone who would be faster than me. Michael Michael would be faster than me because he would literally go. Oh, it's obvious. This guy's guilty as hell. Let's go. I gotta get home by five to watch wrestling. He would be the worst Roy's on tonight guilty innocent. I don't care. What are you thinking? Vile payments as guilty. Jay, who would be the worst. I think Michael would be the worst because you'd be guilty before you'd have. No check. Yeah. You have Michael wood, one of within look at the clock and go traffic starting up guilty. I don't care although they do give you don't they like provide sandwiches and stuff for the jurors. They're good though. Are you kidding Michael's nagging to eat a courtroom sandwich? Even if it's free. Yeah. You're listening to k SPN Los Angeles. Are what's your next question? What was it? That was it. Okay. The I series of known. Why do throughout fasttrack? They will all be legal team. Oh, good. Okay. All right. This kind of fun. A brand new purchase faded in the SPN golf tournament. Right. I did okay played pretty well. I had golf with Gregg before with the US open set for Pebble Beach next month. There is a Gulf website called actually the the US Open's in two weeks. There is a Gulf website called two inches short that asked an interesting question here, it is you get a thousand shots to make a hole in one on pebble beaches famous downhill par. Three seventh. Now, this is basically an elevated tee down to a green that's one hundred yards away. It's playing one hundred yards. Exactly with no wind. If you make it if you put it in the whole two thousand shots, if you make it, you get a billion dollars billion with a B, if you don't you go to a maximum security prison for one year. Do you try it? Hell no. You don't think you could make one out of a thousand no, Greg, there's zero chance in hell, I can make that shot j I would try. I would try to go to jail for for a year. If missed it days. You play all Fillion. I'd still try billion. I didn't make myself. Learn how to live in jails to join once though you get us out. No. I don't think so. You get a thousand shots over for like twenty years. Sure. They'll say it's over. It's over ten days. Nope. Nope. I would do it in a heartbeat. You go to jail for, for. Emmanuel prison. Your that opens up the door for it'd be like Oz for Mason, and Bergman go, John try it out. I'm going to play pebble at the end of June. Joining us on a comrades go supermax Sean Ireland I will report back to you guys on how I do, and that whole, I think, for thousand shots, I try and not only that I would bet a I would two thousand dollars or five thousand ten grand that you'd spend the year in jail. Yeah. What basically that I, I hold out. I. Ones of you at one. Okay, how many par threes? Have you played? I feel I've hold out. How many par-three's if you played probably thousand more than fails. Yeah. In the last week leading thousand but a hundred dollar around a hundred yards is not a hard. She doesn't matter if one hundred hundred twenty one hundred thirty how long fifty doesn't matter how long have you been playing golf John since I was in high school. Okay. Okay. You'll probably play ten thousand par threes. One hole in one hundred yards. All right. I'm doing it. Anyway, I'm Jay. All right. Well, you're send me postcards in prison. I don't think Jay's ever played Gulf. Yeah. He's still doing it a billion dollars. JJ away from other Jays home life. Isn't this what he wants to be here? All right. Sticking with the theme, we're going to play a game called name that judge. I didn't actually have to go before the judge yesterday to try to come up with a good excuse to not have to jury duty. Okay. So say name is your buzzer situation because you're buzzer situation show. I should be able to take should take score, which is John Ireland move here. I'm gonna get none of these. It's no, you probably will because remember, they're not just judges like actual jurists. It's anything judge related. Okay, so judged themed judge related got it. All right. So here we go. The first clue is this, this judge is noted for his roles in Beverly Hills cop as well as fast times in ridgemont, high would y'all. It's judge Reinhold John wins, judge Reinhold. So you, you I forgot his name that wasn't going to get that the point of the game, but I forgot judge Reinhold sorry. But you're buzzed in, you know, Jay okay? According to Forbes, this judge earned one hundred forty seven million Jay. Greg judge Judy judge. Judy sees. Attacks in two thousand seventeen making her the world's highest earning TV personality. The creator of Beavis and Butthead king of the John, Mike jed, Mike, judge very good. See it's not so bad, Greg. Yeah. No, I it's not that this six with seven outfielder Greg Aaron judge Aaron judge who very good very quick only twenty games a season this fictional judge. Also doubled his jury, and executioner was played by Sylvester Stallone in the nineteen ninety O J, judge Dredd, judge Dredd all. All right. Everybody on the board this hall of Famer for the reds, and Orioles nicknamed the judge was a regular attendees, Lakers game, sadly passed away in February. John John, Frank. Robin, Frank Robinson nicknamed the judge. I've never heard that, that either. But I learned that on Wikipedia, so how many how many of these are left? I've got one two three just let us know when you get to the last one and a half. He this judge was played by Harry Anderson on the John Graf. Oh, no. It's, it's judge Anderson, I thought, no, no. Yeah. Yeah. That's asking for the name of the character. Play on night court. Oh, I, I forget, either I was gonna just say Judge Harry Judge Harry, Harry stone. I'm gonna give no credit to anybody on that one. Because I probably should have done it. The other way around. Okay. He was first known as the, the best and judge Simon. Cal Simon Cal. Wow. How did you even know where he was going, sitting meanest Judd? Oh, but you said your name before I even got that out of my mind. Now, J reading sorry, you eating. Reading his point for this one, because I had to send him the sound the next judge is this guy. Oh John John Shmayleh's, George male. I, I'll give point to Jay gets appoint because he was. John has five Jay has to Greg has to and he is a current chief Justice of the supreme court. John, John John, Robert, John Roberts. No chance. Really, can you name any other supreme court Justice and now we'll fight? Wait a minute. There was just a whole movie about one of them. No. Okay if I say, our BG does that help Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Because that was my next. Right. Right. All right. The last one just to make it interesting. We'll be worth four points. Okay. Is otherwise, otherwise, it's Friday. This person had a cameo as judge William Morris in the people vs. Larry flint's. Playing the judge who presided over Flint's historic censorship, trial. I don't remember he played had the cameo as the judge William Morrissey, and the people vs. Larry Flint, the judge presided of shy stork trial. I'm going to say it was actually Larry Flint tacticly, Larry. And so because it was worth four and a half, John, I believe sets a record for a game like this. Ten and a half points. O J's to and Greg's three. I'm very disappointed. There was no Judge Ito fast. I was thinking too. You're right. I was thinking that was coming to. All right. Brian in the midst of the great depression in the twenties, and thirties. Yes, a banker named Pat Monroe notice that people were using their very last Nichols to buy bottles of Coca Cola at the time. The Coca Cola company was trading for less than that cash in the Bank and shares will remarkably cheap so not only didn't Monroe invest himself in multiple Coca Cola shares he urged many of the Quincy Florida neighbors to do the same. He was a trusted banker in many of them followed his advice at nineteen dollars per share. Shares were relatively cheap so Monroe kept urging and chances kept buying in the twenties and thirty nine thousand bucks a shares expensive back, but he kept telling people, hey, if you have twenty dollars buy shares and. Twenty dollars. Buy yourself some of this Coca Cola. Stock switch going to go up. I say has of this guy Quincy became the single richest town per capita in the entire United States, and at least sixty seven of its inhabitants were dubbed. Coca Cola millionaires. They amassed huge fortunes from those early shares which they pass down through their generations and families. Here's my question. Let's say you put in charge of finding a stock that would keep you and your friends financially safe for the next one hundred years. So think about your kids kids. All right. What would your Coca Cola be now in twenty nineteen apple Amazon bitcoin something, I'm not thinking of what would you invest in right now that you think will still be good in one hundred years, two words Showtime forum? Talking about right there. Bryan. You win. What growth stock the answer would have to be Amazon? Amazon. I have a different one. What Walt Disney I have Disney stocks have had it for years. I the problem with Disney never going anywhere. But it's content driven Greg. So you have to keep coming up with ideas. Amazon is is almost an accessory like everyone uses Amazon in there. I get like five packages a week from Amazon. I think the biggest the biggest thing is the number have to come up with any more ideas, they sell other people's the world, hooking highlighter will make a movie like they're able to find some kind of Disney Princess. I think you can make a difference of China. The difference between one hundred years the, the hundred years preceding this whenever they created the stock market with the next hundred years in terms of the churn rate of which companies come and go and crash in this, and that whatever is gonna be so different just because the world is exceleron. We'll a great Greg apply. I would pick Amazon of the group of the ones that you named to Greg's point though. I think in one hundred years Disneyland will still be around. I think that's timeless. And it goes up every year, you know, it costs like a hundred sixty bucks. It's night, we actually because we all work here can get employee pricing at Disneyland, and it still costs fortune, right? Yeah. They're doing a Lisa's family came out from Idaho to stay at the Disneyland hotel, it costs more to stay the Disneyland hotel than some of the Laker tells I stand. I mean, it's it is a very, very lucrative success. Every time we go to Disney I, I always point that's my children, because we're very lucky is Disney employees to pass. We can get in or discounts on hotels. I always point out, like what this costs for regular people who have to go right? And how we would never ever be able to do it. If we were action so be thankful. All right. More fasttrack coming up in two minutes. ESPN LA. Fast track rolls on in Brian. It's to you fast chat is okay. So the blues last night, one game sticking sort of legal themed things games one game five of these Stanley Cup playoffs last night. Two to one in Boston take a three two series lead and puts them one game away from the first title in team history. But it was controversial John because the third period officials missed a very blatant trip in the Boston zone by a blues player and Saint Louis was able to keep the puck in zone and scored and gave them to nothing lead in that goal was the margin of victory. So after the game a spokesman for officiating for the league so they don't comment on judgment calls like that. Other leagues handle it differently. The NBA, for example, has been accused of being too open to admitting mistakes in Bray in violations of their gain law. Right. So what is the right direction here? Do you prefer as a fan for the league to come out and say we screwed that one up at with? But there's nothing we can do about it or would you pretty, like the, the NHL one? We're just we're not going to talk about it. Well, I think the reason the NBA has become so accountable for lack of better word was the Tim Donigi scandal. Yes that they had a rogue referee who is fixing games. And they wanna make sure that they are being over the top transparent in explaining how they're not doing that. But if there was never a Tim Donigi, I never like, I'm a Laker fan. I never feel better when those two minute reports come out and say what Al ready new which is that they blew the call right? I probably would I. If I if I were so it's more annoying as a fan of be like, but you're, you're telling me, I'm right. You're telling me the my team got screwed. But you're also telling me that you're not gonna get doing anything about it. So how does this help me? Right. I so. I think if I was Adam silver for a day, I understand, because of the down east scandal why he's doing it. But I would eliminate the two minute reports. I would answer your question. Just not wanna know. How about you? Yeah, I just I much prefer the we're just not going to talk about it. Because then at least you can as particularly as a fan of the team that got away with it. You can come up with ways to justify the call. Like it was in this case it wasn't a trip or innovate like for people who didn't watch the game last night. Hey, you're missing out the Stanley Cups. The best. Is it is like you can't turn? This is the equivalent of the Nicole Roby Coleman. Play in the Rams. Saints NFC championship where it was just wildly obvious that a penalty was committed, and they didn't make the call. It was that blatant and that obvious and the Rams got away with it and the blues done away with it. So I, I just assume they say nothing because it doesn't help me as a fan. I I'm with you, and Greg. Why can't I find the Nicole Roby Coleman comment which is on some mouse? It, it is still Brian, I say to remember this was a game that happened in January, and, you know, now we're in June for my money. This is the greatest sports sound bite of the twenty nineteen year. This is Nicole Roby Coleman on his own Instagram page after the game. Won't get straight to the point. Nine call about last night. Obviously us met desires, put that boy on put that blown a waffle house, frontier. Will never be Tom track. It will never be topped. All right. Here's the story from AAA baseball, the Hartford yard, goats Headey combined no hitter in a game this week in the top of the night one out. Okay. Hartford was leading the Trenton thunder three to nothing Trenton laid down a bunt, which got a man on. No hitter Hartford. Got the final two outs in one the game. But after the game, ended Hartford thought it was Bushley the Trenton broke up the no hitter with the bun and the yard goats wanted to fight the thunder over. They all got it to the top steps of the dugout and called him out and wanted to get in a big fight. Who's on the right side of this issue? Is it Bush league to break up a no hitter with a bunt, or should the yard goats just calm down? I think the yard goats need to calm down. Look it's a three in a twelve nothing game bunting break up his lately agree with you in three nothing game. And also to go back and you look at it the guy who laid down the bun is like one ninety he's trying to get on base somehow to get to the major leagues or whatever it's a three nothing game. You stick up a lot of things to happen in it yard, goats calmed down. That was not Bush. I inventor of fact in three nothing game that guy gets on the next guy. Walked somebody run homers. That's not Bush league. Is it to lay down a bud? No only because it was a combined. No hitter though. If it was a one guy, matter. It does. Matter doesn't. Wait a minute. Last combined. No hitter. And who was in that, but I can't name the less regular, you can name people that have had no hints by no hitters. Our garbage and think they are combined no hitters in the minor leagues. Well, it's great. Let's go back to. Let's say it was one pitcher. Right. Is it push league in a three nothing game to lay down a bunt with willing one out? It's I never think it's look you better, you stop them. If someone wants to get on fine. I have no issue with that. However, if it was one guy by myself. It's a little Bush league like you're taking away. You know, it's weird to me. Get on with a real hit. Do you know what's weird to me? If it was a perfect game off my law pay great, if it was a real here, and listen out note, nonsensical my position is on this. If it was a perfect game, I'd have a problem with the but for ver- no hitter. I don't right? Perfect games are so rare does the perfect word differ, though. Yeah. It does. It's different. It's perfect. Yeah. But, but my position I fully admit that my position makes no sense fast chat. Right. Continuing the law and order theme in honor of my jury service yesterday. We will play a game called did this star appear on law and order. Oh, excellent. So I will give you the name of the person. Can you will say yes or no? J you may play J John and Greg. So, for example, I would say Jennifer garner, Jennifer garner appear on law and order or any of them, eighty dick war, or news, on order, keep in mind, the law and order SVU debuted in nineteen fifty two. Jammer garner. Greg very clear about this. I have not seen one single episode of law and order ever in my life impossible. Not really. So I'm just play. I've seen guess because I have no problem guessing. But Jennifer garner. Sure. Yes. Well, it'd be best your, your answer for all. No, no, no. I don't think so you want. We'll play the game integrity of. But I think I will agree to play if you don't have never seen the shy will agree with Greg. I think Jennifer garner, who was a struggling actress, who was once actually in the movie dude. Where's my car probably did appear on law and order. I'll say, yes, she did in nineteen Ninety-six. She played a graduate student Hudson university, where John, you know, all sorts of bad things happen at Hudson college at. Down for a yes. Do you think you're playing? I thought we were just skip the people who have a game that all three of you can play. So just play this one with me, Allison Janney. Man. So she's been in a lot of stuff. I saw in two and a half, men state. Yeah. C. J cregg. Yeah. I think she probably was twice in nineteen ninety two and nineteen Ninety-four your two for to Serena Williams. No. She was on SUV. Yes. Using the car sure I'm going away must Mustang very different show lawn. SUV. Serena was on khloe spires, and unwitted an unwitting internet porn victim in a case involving a black fraternity so okay. To correct. One wrong. Kevin hart. No. That is correct. This never appeared on law and order. Bryan, cranston. Another veteran guy who had a long career, play the dentist. And Seinfeld, I think Brian was already established enough by the time law. And order came up a poi-. He's a character actor. He so good. I can he soak? Yep. I'm gonna say did it. No did once appear on an episode of LA law. Bradley cooper. Yes. Absolutely SVU season.

We'll do ice cube. Sure, ice cube is not I t. Don't. Oh, don't confuse the ice as all people name ice lookalike vanilla, all the ICES Idris elba's that good. That was a trick question interests Elba. Sure. Yes. In two thousand and one so now we you're you're batting five hundred. We have to break the tie, okay. With. Any atoms Amy Adams? I'll say, yes. John loses today. House did not appear. Everything almost. SUV fast track. All right. I will. For the game. It's time for who has more. I'll give you guys to choices you tell me you has more Greg. We'll start with you who has more Twitter followers, Steve Mason or Michael Thompson. I would I would hope and pray that Michael Thompson has more J. Yeah. Michael, I like lavar ball tried to will this into existence. I hope it's Michael all three of you. Pau really close. Mason has fifty three thousand Michael is twenty seven thousand twenty seven. We're all the other people that are not falling. Michael, Tom is a great Twitter phone. That was head over Jay overhead and all these are close, by the way after that one. Jay, who is more career home runs. And I'm telling you, this is separated by four. Okay. So this is very close. More career home runs. Cody Bellinger, or Aaron judge. Aaron judge Brian. Bellinger, Greg break the tie. I am also going to say Bellinger. Jay Corrales takes the lead judge has Eighty-eight Bellinger as eighty four. Remember judge had like a fifth hit a home run. But he also had one of twenty I was looking Aaron judge to this for the previous game, he only twenty last year he's only played in eighty eight games this year. Right. All right. So Jay takes Jay takes lead. This went also close who has more career three pointers. Brian career three pointers made LeBron James or Klay Thompson. They're separated by less than one hundred LeBron, Greg clay break the tie Jay. I'm going to say LeBron Greg Bergman on the board, your volume Klay Thompson seventeen hundred and ninety eight LeBron seventeen hundred and twenty seven wow. Okay. It's impressive who has more career rushing yards. Greg rushing yards. Russell Wilson Cam Newton. Well Wilson slides a lot. I'm going to go Cam offense. It goes to J Russell Wilson. Bryant Russell Wilson. Greg Bergman takes the lead. By the way, Cam Newton has a forty eight hundred rushing yards. A Russell Wilson has thirty six hundred I'd who is more EMMY nominations J EMMY nominations, Kelsey grammar, or Michael J, FOX, they each by the way have five wins who has more nominations Kelsey grammer, Michael J. Fox gotta be grammar. Okay. Brian, I will say Kelsey grammer Greg. I'm going, Michael J FOX. He's been on a ton of different shows and they were all good. Greg. Sure, winning streak is over Kelsey grammer seventeen. Michael J, FOX twelve. All right. To left the scores. Greg to Jay two. Brian one two left. So everybody is in it with the last one being we're two and a half. But before we get to the last one which building has more seats Yankee Stadium or Dodger Stadium, Brian yessuey, and we'll let you know that these are ranked in whatever order one two in major league baseball. These are the two biggest capacity stadiums and major league baseball Brian, which one has more seats Yankee Stadium or Dodger Stadium. Dodger Stadium was huge. I will say Yankee Stadium. Okay. Greg, because Yankee Stadium is newer, I think they would make more seats. I'm going Yankee state. Jay, I'm gonna say say Dodger Stadium j it's a good thing. You did your stadium fifty six thousand Yankee Stadium fifty four to fifty one. Did you know that one Janice? No. She got it wrong on your head. Yes. When I was Carson who arisen Yankees fans I'm out. Was the score. No, no. Who jay? Got that right. Yeah. J. Got it right. Yeah. But you have one and he has three you're in it. This one's two and a half. And j has to go. I mean you get to go last Greg. You have to. Okay. All right. So here we go. The last one. Jay, who has more career Grammy awards beyond say or Jay z, the husband or the wife, who has more career Grammy awards beyond say. All right, Greg. We'll have feel the opposite way. I'll go Jay Z Brian. You're out of it law and order SUV. Winter is Jay Corrales Chile fiance has one. This is kind of weird beyond say, is twenty three Grammys Jay z s twenty two. Wow. Do you think she puts one in, in the house to display dominance and then gives side I to anyone who looks at them? I think it's like the contract that you and Mason have our Mason always has to make like a dollar more. Yeah. I know. I always have to make a dollar more. But his name comes first. That's our standard arrangement. All right. That's it for fast-track Brian. Kevin. It's key information pitcher ready for game four of the NBA finals next ESPN LA Mason in Ireland show. Brian Kamm in its key is in for maize. All right. So couple of Mason. I got into a discussion yesterday about. The guy that. The guy that. Was suspended by Adam silver. Mark Stevens has donated close to one hundred million dollars to USC and his name is on one of the buildings over there. We know of any of his kids want to be on the crew team. His well, it's interesting, you say like I said, I bit US he won't take his name off the building. Mason goes, well, give me one example ever of where someone is taken a name off of a building. And. Since he said it, I've been kind of keeping an eye out for it and two things just broke. Here's the first one. The university of Alabama is returning twenty one million dollar gift from its largest donor and taking his name off the law school after he called for Alabama, including the university to be boycotted over the new, you know, they have that whole battle going on about abortion laws, down there, but because they don't wanna be on what they consider to be the wrong side of an issue there taking his name off the building. And this guy was pro the restrictions are anti the restrictive elevate, it said he called for Alabama, including the university to be boycotted over the new abortion law. It's interesting, I think what they're what they're arguing about is the boy telling people to boycott the universe if he's telling people to boycott the university and his name is on a building. That's an idea in conflict. I could see that. Yeah. Now you just harsh you just mentioned, something like during the break just saw. This come up this from Libby dank men who actually used to work with KPCC NPR in Pasadena. I'm just reading straight from the article after protests from local veterans groups and push back from the commission overseeing stadium. United Airlines in the university of southern California have agreed to a compromise to preserve the name of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum starting in August. The venue will be known as United Airlines field at the university at, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. So they're naming the field and not the building originally. The idea was to rename gate, building now we'll just be the field and Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will still be intact as the name of the state. Okay. So I have a theory about this and tell me whether or not you agree, if you're going to buy the naming rights to an athletic stadium within being arena, a field, whatever. You better be I one in, if you're not I one in you don't get your bang for your buck, for example. I know. Tons. I grew up in Orange County almost everybody refers to where the ducks play as the pun pun for years for more than ten years. It's been the Honda center. Okay. What's the theater next door to where we're, we're working right now next door? What's not the no Kia anymore, but that's what everybody calls it. It's been the Microsoft theater for years if anybody ever staple center, which has been the name of the building, where the Lakers play has twenty years of staple center, let's their naming rights deal elapse, and somebody else like, like, let's say Nabisco buys it, and becomes the Nabisco center, everybody'll still call it Staples correct. You have to get in on the ground floor. I think United is wasting their money by doing a naming rights deal in any way, shape or form at the Coliseum because we'll always referred to it. We call they're not really paying, too. And by the way, the name of the place would have been the. United memorial call Simpson memorials still would have been in there. The only time they bang for their buck is, when ESPN or CBS ABC televised. That's why they're doing it and US's on TV all the time that building is on TV all the time and it's going to be used in the Olympics and it'll be on the on TV all the time. And that happens unite it'll be here at United field at the memorial LA Memorial Coliseum. And that's what they're paying for and the name will be on the building. And all that kind of stuff and you'll see on the fly over shots. I've always thought it's all there pave. It's not what we call it the matters. Yeah. I like the giants forever played it Candlestick Park K, and they changed the name of that thing like four like the new place. I'll call packbell because it's an entirely new building. Right. That makes a difference if it's if it's a whole new place. Okay. You know, it's interesting that it's not packbell, but right. But at least I got one of the. Yeah, you may AT and T either. What is it now, oracle park? No. You're right. Yeah. So that's what I'm saying AT and T waging TNT was because of a merger, but oracle park it. Orca wasted their mind because everybody's gonna as you just pointed out called packbell, Texas. They don't even exist anymore. Do they know they got bought out AT and T the greatest name ever for still paying the greatest naming rights deal ever? And it no longer exists because all the banks have gone through mergers. You guys know the Sixers now play at the Wells Fargo center. Okay. Yes. All right. But before and one point it was the Wachovia center, but before that it was the most aptly named building in the history of stadiums and arenas, it was known seep in mind in Philadelphia. How the fans are there. It was known as the first union center or the f- you center is what they used to call it in Philly and bake. Mergers cost us the perfect name for building the first union center, they used to even like the sportscasters today. We're back at the few center. Her. And I've thought they're not allowed to say that it's the first union center, but now it's been bought by Wells Fargo and the idea. Shame died in a merger. You're right. You just I just proved your point for you. All right. We got. We got purgatory coming up at about ten minutes. Brian's information? SPN LA. Hey, hey, it's purgatory sonatas in here in here getting after. And yeah, we're getting after hey Brian, I wanted to bring this up now that we charging, micro microbial duty. And I, somebody was telling a story, I'm trying to remember where I heard this, but a guy bet on Saint Louis to win the Stanley Cup. When did Saint Louis starts slow this year? We I play awful. Right. The NFL in early January. So it wasn't even that early. So guy. Yeah. Guy bet the, you know, he got tremendous odds. Yeah. Anyone any vet so? Yeah, that's right. Because he he's going to win one hundred thousand dollars. So he'd bet a thousand dollars right on Saint Louis to win the whole thing when they inserted Jordan bidding tin, the goalkeeper that's all of a sudden they took us. So someone is offered this guy. So he's holding a ticket blues lead. Three two, two going back to Saint Louis. Somebody has offered him Brian you first eighty thousand dollars for the ticket. So, in other words, he hands it in now to this guy, the guy pays him, eighty grand. He loses twenty granted one hundred thousand but if he doesn't turn it in Boston wins game five. Right. It's game seven. Going back to Boston Brian. If you owned the ticket try I take the guaranteed eighty you take Mike no way. You'd hang onto it, man. You're puck plus plus your it's feels good too. That you actually made that call at this one's you wait to get that money. George would you do? I'd probably take the eighty two. You already made seventy nine thousand dollars. Like you know what you gotta live with it. I mean, also the guy that was willing to go to jail for all in one, which clearly shows, you don't know anyone that's ever been to jail. Here's the thing home game six though. Right. And then you've got another one twice. I would imagine the math says you take the degree, of course. Say you take maybe, maybe maybe to chases to win, and you want to beat them mathematically, it's probably sixty thirty something, you know, sixty five thirty five hundred to guaranteed eighty this is the test is really like if it's my money, right? Then maybe I'm taking the eighty but, oh, this guy should definitely. Is he a blues fan? Does he have an attachment to Saint Louis? I of course, he does. Or did he just do it as an invalid did? No, he did. It was Louis loose fan, but I don't live behind a moat with a staff like Ireland does, right. Difference. I you know, I love where I live. But if I could find a place with a moat moved there. Yeah. For sure. Earlier today. Brian, we're seeing a Bryant son turns seven tomorrow, right? Yes. Okay. And we were talking about when I was little, I was like Alex p Keaton. Like I were tied. Brian, totally envision this and Brian sun is going down that road. Like he cut a deal with his brother to, like, hey, I want to buy something for seven dollars. Give me six six bucks from his older brother, others. Nice. Yeah. All here's advantage. It all. He's home from school today, six not feeling well. And he my wife said, we don't have any food. Now she what do you want for lunch? He said tacos. Okay. Where can we get tacos? Let's walk to the taco trucks will you're not feeling well, we shouldn't be walking around whatever in the baby's sleeping, and all that we maybe we'll see if we can order somewhere. He says, we'll just make sure it's a place that has five star rating. God bless some kid, don't get stuck in mortgage loan. Purgatory. Call HMS capital. They compete to win with the best home loan rates. Call eight three three to five five fifty six ninety eight or visit H MS, capital dot com. I led the show today. Mike and George with this thought my, I've had a chance to cover seven finals in person basically, all the Kobe final Mike. You've been there for the second half of this. You've covered all the, the Kobe, the, the Boston the Boston Orlando, Boston ones that just the two they one. Yeah. Okay. So, so my fourth finals was pistons Lakers in two thousand four and everybody thought the Lakers are gonna win that that was year. They had Payton and Malone. Right. So they had four hall of famers on that team a lot like the warriors do pistons one game. One game two. Kobe saved the Lakers without with a prayer that sent the game into overtime then the Lakers went it not. And everybody said. Oh, the Lakers have too much talent. They'll come back. It's what everyone's saying about the warriors. Now yet it was Detroit who won game three then they won game four and game five and we all look back and went while the Lakers were the much more talented team. But it was just Detroit was healthy. And they were better. Right, georgia. We sure all the raptors aren't the pistons from oh, four I'm not sure that they're not like I'm, I'm willing to say now that if the raptors win. I don't think it's going to be a surprise at all. I mean, they're the Vegas favorite right now, if you were if you were laying odds right now on the series, the warriors are the underdog, you, you get even money right now on the warriors at plus one hundred. If I if I gave you ten thousand dollars I said, you have to bet it. Who would you bet on to win the series? I still think Durant comes back. So I'd probably take the warriors, Mike. How about you? I'm hearing some other things about Durant that have that have been sort of troubling. I'm sure we'll spend a lot more time in that sonata show. But basically, like everyone sort of questioning it, this point, why hasn't returned and apparently, he's looked pretty good and some workout. I've heard that too, which makes me think that here meeting more to it than just him. And that. From the cleaner. Asking about perception. And if he if he's the way he looks the best is, if they lose he doesn't play, right? Cynically. Now, I hope that's I could never live with myself. I know I did that I know. And that's why people are like Ramona brought that up. We talked Ramona earlier and she said that you wanted to the injury. Is I guess both things can sort of be true, but it's either the injury is worse than we thought. And there were people who raise their hand when he was walking the floor. And they said, you know, he might be back this whatever in a week or two weeks or whatever like that, that's a six to eight week injury. And if that's the case and he's gonna miss the finals. Ramona said it's either that the injury was worse than people thought or like you said, Mike, basically something weird is going on. She thought it was more the injuries worse than but like you're right. The perception issue is huge. If they don't win and he doesn't play. Then he is kind of proves this point the answer to the actual question though, is that I have I've been kind of warriors stalwarts oh, you know. When he doesn't play me too. When Klay got hurt that change everything. And you had to bet it now put a gun to your head. You gotta bet it. You can't duck it. I'm honestly at this point, I probably would have to pick the raptors. Yeah. Wow. That's big for him. Well, I'm with him. I, I've, I've been wouldn't be it shouldn't be a surprise. I've been warriors in six look. It's based on the injuries. Really like in this course you say something for the Lakers now, new information we're healthy. Exactly you information. But Carl Malone was out and the difference, though with this warriors team. Well, man, I was gonna say the differences, the chemistry is so good. But I think this Durant whole situation and you never want to say that a guy isn't playing like if he's healthy. I'm not going to say that I'm just saying there are people there questioning that well, but that and here's my here's the parallel. That's a locker room thing. Here's the parallel people. Forget game five of the two thousand four finals. When Detroit knocked the Lakers up four to one was the end of Kobe shack. There was so much tension at that point between the two of them, including the. Finals where shack was pretty unstoppable. He was killing him. And Kobe was trying to do what Kobe does and win the game by himself that they weren't happy with each other when it ended and Kobe had to write to be a free agent. And Jerry Buss said boy, I gotta make a call here and, and he went with Kobe. And so that it could be happening with Duran. They went Durant to stay, but, you know, we were we were talking earlier, Brian, and I there's this free agency thing changes literally weekly. Well, it may be kyri whispering and you're going to worry. Don't play just come to Brooklyn with me. Do you think he does you need wants or go to Brooklyn? I think Irene goes I do too. Yeah. But do you think to rang? I think he's trying to convince I don't think drink goes to the Knicks by himself. They'll, I think they'll end up together on one of the what did George does this solve the Durant dren to the next thing Durant, and Kimba maybe waiting friend Durant, and Kimba. Does that get his choices kyri in Brooklyn or Kemba with the Knicks you go kyri in Brooklyn? But he if he doesn't. Want to go to Brooklyn. But this is the part that I don't understand this. This sounds a little it gets to a little bit of like the Laker fan clipper clipper thing there is zero reason unless you are just so dedicated to the idea of resurrecting the Knicks because you have a spiritual connection to that franchise, right? There is zero reason to choose the Knicks over the nets, well, eight basketball states just but his guys the rock nation guys. All those guys are Knicks fans. Like they're all they all grew up in New York. There may have the connection they spiritual connection to the French and they're trying to guide him in that direction, potentially. But here's the thing with Brooklyn. If and John, you and I've talked about this before kyri I think clearly got a taste of what northeast media is like in Boston and didn't love it. He knows that if you go to the Knicks, it's worse than that true. If you go to Brooklyn, it's nowhere near that, which, by the way, it should be an incentive for K D to do the same, right? Well, but, but in New York Mike, you know this because we've been there, so many times it's. The, the, the E, T S curse the, the jets the Mets and the nets all second class citizens that town is about the Yankees the giants and the Knicks all this, and I'll push back on the New York media thing a little bit. I mean, the media has there's so many national people now you, you included in that mix George like wherever the Lakers, go, like there's just as big of a media crowd in Brooklyn, New York. The, the crowd would for the Lakers in the ad. I it's not much like if I lived up there for you're in the northeast, it's not at the tax has been. Well, I'm telling I've been to games for, you know nets games against the Hornets and it's not the same as going to the nets game or the Hornets game versus the Knicks. It's not not the same. So when I'm going the, the Laker to makers different part of that is wherever we go. It's like the Beatles. That's probably. So that's the difference. So there's some of that there's one of the things I always try to explain to people it's like the clippers will never be a bigger deal in Los Angeles in the Lakers, ever correct for they could continue playing basketball with the clippers make the playoffs, you know, every win for the next fifth or morals. But then the Lakers miss it every year for the next fifty years, the clippers Welby big but nationally in terms of what's on the jump in terms of what people talk about on TNT and things like that the clippers can be as thing this Christmas this year. The hold on. No, he he's under something to this extent one. Chris Paul de'andre and Blake, we're playing. They were a bigger national story than they were a little story. That is absolutely true. But there's still weren't a big national. No. They were a big national. This is what I would use his evidence. Okay. This year. The clippers made the playoffs star starts. Yeah. The Lakers were thirteen of the top thirty ranked games all because a long run, right. I get that boat. I'm saying is when the clippers were good with Chris in those guys and the Lakers were having those awful seasons even though they had Kobe nationally people. The national outlets were we're talking about the clippers because they were in the conversation going deep into the playoffs, or whatever it was. So they got I'm not saying they were still getting more play than the Lakers is they actually got real plans, nationally this notion that nobody cares about the clippers maybe true locally. But if Kawhi Leonard, and somebody else, and Kevin Durant. Let's just never quite comes Jimmy, and they have another supporting guy, and they and the clippers are near the top of the conference, which, by the way, they would they're going to get talking about TNT and shows like that. Yes. By the way, that's an interesting. What Brooklyn secrets we, we keep hearing, these drumbeats that qui- now may stay apparently did a sit down with Rachel today. Nichols, where he spoke extremely highly of Toronto in the way they've handled them with the load management. And let's, let's assume for the sake of a conversation that Kawais stays in Toronto who becomes the clippers new target like they, they've been so all in on qui- there. I mean according to what I know it's. Colline K D other top two targets. So Bobby Marx was on my show yesterday. And I asked him we were talking about AD because he wrote a story about the teams and what they could give up for Anthony Davis. And I asked him about the clippers I said, you know, I guess they're package would be centered around. S G, A Shakeel just Alexander. I heard that those driving that, you said, I my understanding is that he is not would not be included in a package and Bobby marks has history with Lawrence. Frank is ludicrous. Right. And here's what Bobby said he was on earlier today with statistics in Los Angeles. No. But they're saying that he was on earlier today with max and this is something that Trudell and I can't talk about the balmy marks. Can here's what he said about that particular player where do you think AD ones up? I think he winds up in, in Los Angeles with the Lakers. I do I think if you ask me, the trade that on Boston. But I think if if you know, we talked about, if they don't if with the inserting with Irving, I think, I think, basically LA comes in and basically offers them, whatever they want again. And then later George he was asked city, this is five seconds. He was asked about another player. She may Butler. The lakers. So Bobby thinks the Lakers could get a huge hall here. He, he said yesterday on my show that he thought Anthony Davis is coming, he thought that. Butler could go to the Lakers, but he felt that if he were constructing the team that he would go use the rest of that money because you would only have about twenty seven million dollars to work with Anthony Davis after that points traded, so you wouldn't be able to Jimmy Butler would have to take away less, or you'd have to find a way to make even more, or you have to get them before you have to have the deal before for. And then and then get the track. But the problem with the trade later is. New Orleans loses control of some pick, correct. And the other part of it is, is that he's got a trade kicker, Anthony Davis. The money gets gets even worse, a more challenging again, but they've figured out what what's, but I do think we talked about was surrounding Anthony Davis in LeBron with complementary players. You got twenty seven million dollars to do that with you can get a couple of players that make a lot of sense. It's just one of these deals where like right now like today a week ago it was totally different. But today if stays in Serano, if Katie, maybe stays in Golden State, which your whispers of that, although. Seems like play. But like right now, things at the very least just strictly talking about Anthony Davis, you know, five years for Jimmy Butler in Philly where if they offer them the max, I feeling it's hard for him to turn feeling because Jimmy Butler, once you pay but just from eight trading. Anthony Davis standpoint that, you know, the Celtics do you really believe they're going to throw out all those guys at this point? Now, it really comes down at that point to the Knicks and the Lakers, Lakers can do a better deal than the next this, yes. Ever been that complicated, and especially once the Lakers moved up from eleven to four they just have the best offer. They, they really do. Well. Ingram's health clears. Then that's all that matters. That's that's either. I will. I will. I will. I will. I, I will tell you this, that people at the Lakers have told me that his health is one hundred percent they're not worried in the least. Yeah. But that's all that. I mean I mean I know until you see him on a court threats to the league. Right. Can't show me, the Lakers are very confident that he's going to be healthy like medical people. Right. And not I'm not saying the Lakers medical people, but medical people will look at that and they'll, they'll, we'll be able to tell right the pelicans in this particular case, we'll have their medical people on it, and they will make a determination and that because we know I was in Blake Griffin David Griffin likes Brandon Ingram. I mean he said it, you Br audio from my show from a couple months ago. He loves Brandon Ingram. Yeah. I wonder you know, when I was listening to that. But I'm like I wonder guys from now on, if they're going to be more careful when they go on those, Pat Riley sojourns to network TV where I bet you David Griffin Assane, damn. I wish I wouldn't have put that out there, right? It's kind of like a poker player. You know what he does when he gets back at king, it's almost well. Leveraged my friendship with into recovering him on the show and. Yeah, it might come back to bite him a little bit. But if he gets him and he likes number no. Hey, let me pivot here. You're listening to case fee in Los Angeles. This is purgatory trodellos here. Synonymous here, Brian Chemnitz. He's information Carson Wentz signed a huge extension one hundred twenty eight million one hundred seven million guaranteed. Yeah. Not only was Carson Wentz in the same draft as Jared Goff. They have the same agent. Right. Do you think this puts pressure on the Rams to sign Goff to an extension now rather than like, what you saw Kevin demos, said today, which is that he says that it doesn't change the way they're going to conduct their business that they're they've offered him the fifth year option? You know, they've extended that to him, and that they're going to sign him that he's part of their, their future. And and but they're gonna sign him when they're ready on their timeline. Good for them off. Well, I agree with that, too. I think Kevin's being smart, but there's a there's another argument here that Carson Wentz is going to he gets one hundred seven. Million guaranteed. Right. Patrick Mahomes is eligible for an extension at the end of this season. If the chiefs give him two hundred million, which a lot of NFL, people are projecting, then the price for Jared Goff, just went up. Yeah, if you extend Jared Goff now and give him the Carson Wentz, you can save ninety million dollars. Save a lot of money. Would you do that? I would try to make the deal now because they've already set the market. I also think this hurts the Cowboys reset, I do too. Yeah. I don't think Dak Prescott is a thirty one million dollar quarterback. But they're going to probably now have to pay him or not real, the two don't jerk off spinner quarterback dot Preston. According to ki ki ki had Goff third on his list, keys not a cough guys. I have watched a great deal of football. He's also not the NFL MVP, and I know that he was in the mix apparently early in the season. But, you know, Mahomes that we're saying, Mike is if Mahomes signs it, resets the market for young quarterback had Wentz. Look them up disagrees with that key had went Dak Goff. If you rank them one two three. It's a tough decision. I mean this happens, by the way in, in every sport, whether or not to extend a guy now and basically buy out his arbitration. I would do that. The dodgers are going to face this with Cody Bellinger, Cody Bellinger, Boris that ain't happening. Right. I agree. Just pay him. Whatever Bellinger is the best player in baseball. Almost always Scott Boras takes his players to arbitration, right? But you make you know, you could try and make the proverbial offer you can't refuse. The angels did it with trout worked. It depends on how much John you're right. The way that we usually look at these things. All right. What, what are the best quarterback? And then the agent brings that to the team look what look what guy x got. He needs to get this. I think what demo said was, we're going to evaluate him how we think offer them the deal that we think, and not just and not worry about. What's I, I get that can be unrealistic? Right. But unless you if you think the guys that good, and I don't think they think he's a top five guy. Then why would you choose to Mike on using when it gets tricky is if he leads the Rams back to the Super Bowl and they win it if he plays awesome this year? Right. Then it's an easy decision. And by the way, in the NFL they can tie off down. I'm I don't want to mislead anybody here they can take off down for three or four years. They can franchise. They can do they can do what, what? Cousins. Yeah. That's why that's worked out great. And that, by the way, screwed over the Vikings. And, and I said it before it happened and it, and it has shown to be and Mike, putting cousins case, it, it drove up is value. You know if the Redskins would have given him the Carson Wentz deal, then he never would have been. The real question with Gough is whether or not, it's really a referendum on Sean McVeigh's belief in himself and the ability develop any kind of anyone into a decent quarterback. And if he believes that he can take eight solid enough guy and make him good enough to to get by not Blake Bortles. But something like, that's because it's it's it doesn't really matter. If your quarterback is being paid twenty nine million dollars or thirty three million. The question is the benefit, you get a team as if he's being paid six million as opposed to the Russell Wilson Super Bowl deal. I think eventually, there's going to be a guy and I McVeigh fits the mold. I just don't know if he's willing to do that. Now if the Rams willing to this, but I think eventually there's gonna come a time where these coaches are so in control of the offense because the schemes in college. Now mirror what you're seeing in the NFL that I think there's going to be a team that's going to be brazen enough to do what they do with every other position, which is every several years after five years, they're going to be like, nah, we'll go get another guy. So that way, we can keep loading up at all. The other mills aren't loyal suggested the Rams are gonna do this with Gough over a year ago. Exactly what you're saying. It's Larry point to what you're saying. George to quarterbacks are getting better now right there. Like there's quarterbacks going all the numbers are right. Let right. There's pass it all these guys know how the system the play colleges, Sarah. So to me, there are only thirty two spots. Like, that's that might be the way that you can that any ball. This is. That's a market inefficient. I'm with you on. Yeah. I think I think someone's going to be bold enough to try that. So don't. Just like look there's ten guys coming up next year. By the way, I got I got another quarterback conversation. That Ireland text me about yesterday that I wanna get three meta purgatory trails here Sodano's here. Brian came in at ski I'm John Ireland will roll on next ESPN LA. Hey, it's purgatory. So John Sodano Trudell. Brian candidates, ski, I'm John Ireland. Yes, george. This was a excellent conversation. You had yesterday so yesterday from the Sodano shorty junior was my guest co host. And we were we somehow got into the conversation about ready very successful. Actor was was literally mentioned to be the lead in every movie for about ten fifteen years. Right. So I said, how come you never did a football movie. Like there's not a of baseball move, right? He was a pitcher. And I said, why aren't you any of these quarterbacks like, and he said, well, who could I have been that was like how about Shane Falco and the replacements and his argument was that guy? Didn't even wanna get hit, like I want to be before I before I reveal what my answer was greatest movie quarterback ever Mike who pops into your head. Oh man. I mean I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go with Lance harbor. I mean, I know it was just high school, but he had everything Walker. Yeah. Paul walker. Varsity cannon. Yeah. The looks like he was going to he was gonna go, d one where everyone wanted, right? Irc programs. Yeah. And he got hurt. But I'm saying, but like he in terms of skill plus good looks giving Freddie wanted to be. He said he could have done the vanderbeek role. I made him do Jonathan Matsen. Yeah. He wanted to do mocks, and he's still. I made him do the I don't want your life on the air. Yeah. Brian greatest movie quarterback. Because Davis Burt Reynolds is a good answer. In the original long is yard varsity blues, his great. I this good. All right. Tell me what you guys think of this Brian in my Walker doesn't hold up against prison. A number. Well, I think's prisons pretty easy. According to one year, I honestly, how much would you bet? Did you read you hear this coming into this conversation? I might laid out to quick and finish this after Pebble Beach. Seven toll is one hundred yards downhill from an elevated tee. Okay. If you could play it with no wind on a perfect day. So it's one hundred yards. Exactly. Downhill, you get a thousand shots. Okay. You get a thousand attempts. If you not one in the whole, you get a billion dollars. Okay. If you don't if you go for thousand years, the kicker you go to a maximum security prison for one year. Would you take the vet? Hell no. You started yours when, you know anyone that's been to jail. Not, not like real, clearly, that's the case, if I were if I were somebody that played golf regularly, I would think about it. But I do not. Shitting. I- shading shading that was the dean. Shading is I knocked in Gilbert arenas. I knocked in a ball last week from eighty five yards fifteen yards. Right. And but that's how many whole ones have you had in your life one that's it. But, but I've had more outside had one hundred yard hole outs. Probably five or six two, okay. So how many hundred yards shots? Have you hit in your life? Like, when ahead exactly hundred yards to the pin probably chosen no ever take one hundred fifteen yards in either two thousand well, you've had ten thousand John. You've been playing since high school. Yeah. Ten thousand this huggers yard showing where you are in your life question. You you've worked hard and done well for yourself. So you take a year in jail, you don't need. Crazy. What are you Billie million guys billion? I could buy an NBA team. Maybe like New Orleans. You and Timberlake partners of Bill. Veto, you have enough money at that point to be a guy. He'll tell you gonna series. I Mike Mike wants to China. You what would you do? Mike. I can't do it. You're joe. I'm going to well, how can we fail with the B? I'm going, I'm going your trying to. Yep. Me too. Now. Can we assume for the sake of the bet that they don't die in prison, like five, it, not part of the deal? You don't know any prison, move your TV show. Did you okay there see areas in which living through that year is actually worse? Yet. The products. See the problem is in California prisons, you have to be a part of a group. Right. Unless you're just by yourself all day every day. There's like a country club. Like, there's not one second of your how many ever many years on the planet, they prepared you for ten seconds here. Probably never got detention. We didn't get detention. Oh, yeah. A couple of times. Well, you know, why truancy no smart ass talking to. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Hey ireland. The smart thing to do with the is you pay for protection and saw do that on here. Yeah, you have money for that. I watched odds. I know it's bad. But come on. All right. So my crazier to those skinheads seem like bad news, eight let me she gets this, though. Mike quarterback. Oh, yeah. Go ahead. Johnny utah. That was you break, Texas, by the way, you didn't give him credit for this Patrick. Swayze said, Johnny Utah. Four touchdowns in the Rosebowl. Oh, that's right. Because we already talked about the beach. Yeah. For any argument was he only did the beach scene. That's right. Guys off in the beach talking to just Google this in NFL dot com. Yeah. Best quarterback. Sunshine for me. Ronnie bat. Yeah. Johnny Utah, second. You said the second Ohio State quarterback play by views was his best. Why better than the replacements hero? Shane Falco simple. Utah was injured in the Rose Bowl during his senior year. That indicates there's his Ohio State team, won the big ten Falco on the other hand played in the sugarbowl meeting, Ohio State did not win the big time. What do they do? They number one rentals flash. Gordon. That's joe. I would go running sunshine. He was really being shot up to he. Threw up though in the big game. But Donovan McNabb. Yeah. By the way in the in the big game in the big TC Williams game in remember, the titans. You remember it's not sunshine. The original quarterback, Gary Harris. They pitched it out. Yeah, too. So we may put sunshine in in in. No. He was quitting to. He was the quarterback and they put Reverend the slide right? Right. Sunshine blocked everybody, for right right, guess Jason street honorable mention for me for he got injured. Oh moon, Friday night, lights Friday night, lights. It's a show but not a movie. There's a Friday night movie free movie. The show is great though. Yeah. I didn't watch the show. I watched them. Move kiss. Black is the guy who plays the quarterback in Friday night lights the movie. Yeah. Yeah. And but the movies, good running back was way better than the court. It's interesting, it's like it's running off, if you did this, if you did this for other sports, like if you did for baseball, it's ROY Hobbs. Yeah. Yeah. I mean it for basketball. It's probably Jesus shuttles. Right yet. Jesus showed us what this guy, I'll tell you this, though. Michael would say Dr J in the fish that say he would. I watched the other day on cable. I watched this movie I was flipping around the guy and I ran into it, and I always stop on it, and it's a terrible cheesy rom com, but I liked terrible cheesy rom coms for the love of the game with Kevin Costner. The no hitter or the perfect game leads to win the game. Okay, fog is they gave Lyons biggest mistake of that movie. They needed a technical advisor. Yeah. You don't put color man with Vince, right? And I like Steve lines. But you don't put VIN with a color. You got a good agent. Clearly got him in the movie and John C Reilly was the catcher in moving good in that movie out. All right. Little known fact angels, announcer. Jose motive plays second base for the Tigers makes the diving stuff on that game. Yeah, yeah. I liked that movie. Yeah. Very, very well done and fan that eventually just has to tip his cap. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Okay. Dave. Chappelle chapel. Yeah. That was that guy in the airport. We were talking before. I came in we, we were talking about swinging. We were Vince Carter playing in four decades. And we talked about Kareem, you know, he played in three decades. Right. And I was joking. I one of my favorite movies is also forget Paris. Billy critical. So is the ref right. Throws out Kareem in his farewell game. And he says, you can't throw me out. It's my farewell game. Let me be the first bid, farewell. Yeah. He's having a nervous breakdown, Billy crystals. And he starts just a jetting people at the bar. Everybody out. Yeah. He's here. He gets his ended. Right. League suspends him for going crazy Leo mcgarry, John Spencer, one of his fellow refs in that game this. Yeah. You've never seen forgetting. But I did not put the I probably saw before I saw the west wing, you know, like wait. Okay. Yeah. Forget paris. Still good movie. What's coming up on the big Sodano ninety minutes leading up to gametime? So Trudell night, Trudeau's got a he always comes in with some sort of like, how would you call it like not a gripe?

The Sedano Show (Hr 2)

"Announced. La mama Momo's year two thousand hanging out. Dave mcmenamin goes stop by next hour. Also, sit three were checking with us talk. We'll Turney so the NFL can generally not necessarily happy with LeBron James explain in a second. So when Nina kinds was in here couple of weeks ago, we were talking about the Tonio Brown situation. And we were talking about how Antonio Brown one. Right. And it's rare that in the NFL player beats the system. Now granted few guys have the talent Antonio Brown has or the situation the leverage in the situation that he had to be able to pull that off. But I did love the fact that he was able to tell the NFL go shove it or his team in that particular case, and he now ends up being an Oakland raider playing for Jon Gruden your raiders old white power structure. Yeah. Exactly. So that would mean, and I were were seriously discussing, you know, halfheartedly was that if you're an NFL team, you don't want one of your players going on the shop because. The story came out today where NFL executives told the Monday morning quarterback that I'm sorry. Then tell the Monday morning told one of our guys at ESPN NFL executives several of them anonymously said they don't love the fact that Antonio Brown has basically ruined the system for them or being the system for them. Oh my goodness. So players are thinking for themselves and advocating for themselves. It's like, hey, guys, come on keep just just keep that down. Now, we don't do that in the NFL. We don't let players do what they want. Here. The dangerous, quote is executives worried and Tonio Brown may have set a way dangerous precedent out Ramona, not talk about things that are that is not danger. God forbid, somebody thinks for themselves and actually somebody gets something bid there. Not of you. Right. I mean, usually the threat of we can cut you no matter what. Because your money is not guaranteed is enough to scare players for and then on. The back end of that they get cut. And if you get seen as somebody who is not a company man, and doesn't know your place doesn't know how to stay in your lane. Then other teams won't sign you you kinda get what happened to capture Nick. And who's the other guy who was in that lawsuit? Can't remember, you know, we don't want somebody who's going to be a disruptor fig about this in the context of what we saw with us last week, and whenever the whole player versus owner ownership in management of the NFL. I was thinking about the NBA where at least a lot of these guys if they when they put their body in the line, if something happens that they're protected financially for a guarant- like guaranteeing, the NBA guaranteed, and that always bothers me in the NFL, and I get that some guys have the big signing bonuses that is supposed to make up for some of that. But for a game that violent and these guys get hurt. And then we don't even really because it's everybody we don't even focus on it that much when it happens because it's it's kind of like, well, yeah. You signed his contract three years ago. We don't think about the potential money down the line that there. Missing out on that the NBA players have in their pocket. Yeah. I mean, it's the only leverage NFL players have ever had is the the willingness to sit out to hold out and most of the time they hold out and end up in camp. Anyway, it doesn't just ended up costing people time and money. It's a good point remote. Not only that though they have to look bad. Right. Because they're the ones holding out. And then what happens is some of their teammates. Actually, like, we what we wish she was here. Like some turns though, right? It it starts out like, oh support supportive, and then there's a point there. There's a breaking point because the season's coming. They feel like they want to win and that this person's impeding that progress. So right all those things play a role in now. People say levian bell lost and financially. He did. But I also believe he said a precedent, right? And he was he had enough conviction to say, you know, what I feel like I'm getting screwed. And I'm not I this franchise tag is stupid. And I've been franchise tag multiple times now, and I'm not playing through that. I'm not playing with a one year deal. How much of his how much of his money is guaranteed, and do you know if hand? I can tell I think it's thirty five. So the one one get the I get the pure math argument about how he's left some money on the table. But maybe this is a dumb argument, but just go with me, he's essentially he's pushing the clock back a bid where some of the money is coming in basically a year later, and so it's so he he was basically able to just work on his body this year almost even recover from all the hits and stuff that he's taken previous years now assuming that you say in game shape, which I'm sure he does. And so that to me doesn't a hundred percent reflect a loss of money because he could tears ACL and not going to happen. And then and then he's going to have more guaranteed money now coming in if he gets hurt this year than if he would've just played out his deal last year and got hurt. Yeah. So he says, I make any sense. Yes. It does four years fifty two and a half million with the max value with incentives that can get him up to sixty one which then also includes thirty five million guaranteed. Yeah. Thirty five and what what had he had Pittsburgh offering him. I think it was. Rows over. But from the franchise tight, it was they had they had discussed an extension that was similar to that. But it was highly deferred money from what I remember reading that that the money on Levy on bells offer from the Steelers was like similar geared, maybe slightly less guaranteed money. And it was deferred. Like, so in other words, you're not getting that money for a while. Like, you get it years and years later, I personally have always liked deferred money. I think that's a smart thing for any professional athlete because one you're going to get it anyway, and you might as well, get yourself paid for like Zach Randolph has one of those contracts. He's still getting paid. Ten years Gillian and a quarter from the Mets not bad. Yeah. You know? I always think those are smart only argument against is does the simple if you have all of the money, then you can invest in the careers, but you have to be disciplined enough to be able to do that. And I think that sometimes people aren't like it's why lottery winners end up going bankrupt at a very high clip. With the what's the LeBron other than just well, exactly? I think it's the trailblazer that it's the NBA model and mean, and I talked about it that is prevailing into the NFL song. So LeBron representing the NBA model the player empowerment Mago and an NFL people are terrified of it as they should be. Because I do think it sets a precedent. And I think that again, not everybody is in Tonio around and can manage this the way that he managed it. But I do think that there's going to be a couple of more guys down the line that are going to do this. Julio Jones is coming up soon. He was a guy that was not happy with his situation in Atlanta. I mean, why receivers are gonna get singled out here. But I do think it's going to come a point where every position outside a quarterback. Yeah. Is going to want to look at this. So there's very few players who are good enough to have that kind of leverage because in football, the only players who who are typically worth it our quarterbacks, right? Who are worth that kind of leverage in. Basketball. I think this is what you get into. When we talk about the anti clutch sports as aviation anti LeBron sentiment of around the league. It's not so much that people hate LeBron or hate Rich, Paul it. I mean, they do I I don't think that they're popular amongst owners and and in the NBA, right? But it's the it's the precedent that LeBron and rich and that that idea of take less money or take less guaranteed. So that you have maximum leverage at all time ask for a trade. But with two years left on your deal that is very distabilise ING for an organization, and we've seen a lot of trades now in the last couple of years where where you can trace this like Jimmy Butler asked for trade, right and Paul George. He didn't ask retrea Kawai all of these all of these type. These superstar players are now making. In their displeasure known and taking their career into their own hands. Not letting it just be dictated by ownership, and that is very distabilise into a franchise, especially to a small market franchise. And I think the sense is LeBron and his has sort of started that trend coming up next LA's. Biggest sports moment was voted on. We'll tell you what it was all time this past year. I'll call we'll tell you what it was in just a moment. Plus, we're giving away an El Torito gift certificate. Right. We're doing that. So we're going to give that away. We're gonna give that away once the male tomato right now, we could meet then. Meet that orders to put it in the fridge permits, but I think there might some still being but we're gonna well thereto gift certificate. Stick around for that. That's going to happen. We're going to do it here in the next half hour. How about that? So stick around for that, mama, mama here. Trudell here's Saddam show. ESPN LA sit down show here on ESPN. LA mama Momo here. Trudell hanging out. Have you gone full sonata lately you've been very mellow and cool and chill and we need. Let's get after it. Oh, let's get after after Momo. And I had just before you walked in. We had a very measured conversation about where the Lakers are. And what their season has been like. But it was people. You know, everyone measure does not full Sodano. It's not it's been a bit. I don't know. There hasn't been anything. That is really like gotten me to the point where I'm like that like fired up like I mean, what is say you look you bought me a pop during the break your moon in west. Yeah. I mean, you're, but there's nothing that's been smiley every time. I've seen you lately. Yeah. And we're all kind of over it. My six month old sleeps. Now, that's what I was gonna say. I mean helps your daughter is working on her first hip hop album. I mean, there's just everything's going. So I just wanna see the full Senate will come out at some point. Something's got to happen. Yeah. Something's got to happen to get me fired up. Like that case big, you know, Catholic on that salads on how we doing solids now. Yeah. Yeah. He's loving it. I mean, we still get you know, he's still got the breast milk going on. But we're doing solids, and he loves it. He loves it. That's next week for me. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That's six months. Yeah. Yeah. We we could just talk about parents probably for the for the. It's the donnas like moved on. He's like onto the playoffs. I am. He has he's to be in playoff mode here soon, or are you going? What's your I I won't vote. We won't know until the last minute. Don't have any say over it. I don't I have suggested some place. I'd like, oh, look the reality is this. Okay. Look if you guys let me go. Now this works. I mean, the inside who's I Breen Jeff Van Gundy? And Mark Jackson that team will recess Saulters us. Sometimes they'll split her up as the analyst be an analyst. I join join them in the conference finals and finals. So at least salters is with that group. And you know, they get whatever game they they get Golden State or whatever, you know, whatever they want. So I'm not doing any warriors games. Like there's that. All right. So then the next group is probably a combination of either Mark Jones Huby Brown and. Izzy gutierrez. Okay. Maybe. And then that group will probably do the top team in east. Right. And then there's the group of Dave Pasch, Doris Burke and Cassidy hover. Yep. And then they'll get third pick. And then it's me with like Ryan Ruko and PJ Carlesimo and we'll get the fourth pick. Oh, okay. That's just kinda how it goes is. They're looking at like, okay. See, you know, maybe Portland Utah. Yeah. And then Denver Denver, potentially. Then out east, you you'd be looking at, you know, I don't think I think Philly would go to one of the better teams better broadcast teams or the more high profile broadcasts Detroit's that's not exactly. Yeah. I I guess you don't Boston. Maybe a possibility Boston in the enemy a possibility that can happen. So that's kind of what I'm looking at right now. Maybe Brooklyn in Toronto that could be I could see that one being thing. It'd be fun when I'd be I listen, I'm okay with Brooklyn Toronto to great city. Yeah. So like, that's the thing this spring selfishly. I look at that. I look at where what cities can I go to? And have a nice time. Yeah. So even though in Toronto, though, I'm going to have to use the Greg Bergman read it streams to watch American television. So you know, there's that that bugs me, it's not right? I mean, it just get your act. I a buddy moved there this year. And so I. House Congo, and he had the type of cable package where you could see most you can get a premium or not not the hotel. No hotels, you at the hotel bars, you have a better chance than in the actual room, and they had like five channels. They're just all playing hockey and curling. Well, there's and there's NBA TV Canada. Yeah. But it's it's not the same. Yeah. You gotta go do the Greg Berkman thing. I mean, that's like the most fun part of the playoffs is when you can you're covering the playoffs. And then on your off days, you watch all the other games. Right. It's fun right hotel room. Everybody goes out and finds a sports bar, go hang out team Bondi. Yeah. And especially if you know, I'm I'm hanging out with PJ Carlesimo during the. I'm getting the best restaurants on the tour. You know, every single time restaurant lists. Yeah. John black is used to have a great restaurant list. Every city like the best spots. Ireland gave me one mahogany in. Okay. See which I thought was very good. Yeah. That is a famous restaurant. Remember when Kevin Durant came back, and he wanted to have like a team dinner. Yeah. For his guys. And the owner of mahogany said sorry. This is a thunder restaurant. You're not welcome here. C A K D. Yeah. And then we'll there. Just showed up anyway. Right. And sat in the public section, right? For all to see. Yeah. That was one of my that was one of my stakeout stories. That was like I was covering this. And I got a tip you'll pay. Hey, katie's though tell we stay is right across the street from that. So I could just see mobile up there like with Benach. Operatic. I am the worst. Okay. You're loud. Am terrible at it. Yeah. You're laughing all the time you're smiling. You stick out like that? Because you're, you know, do you remember when Dwight Howard had meetings at his agents office in Beverly Hills. And there was a twelve year old kid or something. Anyway. So there was this. There was like a, you know, five or six teams we're going to be with Dwight Howard Beverly Hills. And I found out where it was the location was the approximate times where so one day Shelley Smith went down there. And she was there when the hawks came by remember hawks in on that. And then I went there. I knew what time the Laker meeting was I think it was maybe it was ten o'clock. And so I stood out in front of the building. It was just like a office building in Beverley hills, and my producer and the cat. Another camera guy stood in the parking garage. So there was like one way or another. We were going to get entrance in exits K, and I'm standing there, and I'm kinda like loitering, right? Like literally loitering on a street corner in Beverly Hills. Like, I mean, not exactly Pretty Woman style. But like just, you know, randomly standing there. Trying to look like I belong. Or pretending. A phone iphone, right? And I'm just like playing around on my phone to do and you know, trying to not look weird. And all of a sudden, I got a call on my phone, and it's my camera guy. He's like did you get them? I hope. I know who he's like dude dantonio Seve Nashes walked right in the front door right in front of you. And I'm like where are you on your phone in the notice, I was just facing the other way? And I didn't even see them like they literally pulled up in front of the building. I was standing there with like my back to the building or whatever it was. I just wasn't looking completely missed him. Thank the worst 'paparazzi. So anyways, the mahogany store. Yeah. Was when Kevin Durant? There was this big thing of his return back here. And he's still shows up. And I got a tip from somebody who is at the restaurant. Oh, Kevin Durant actually here. Yeah. After all that regard. He's public sector. I left the arena, and you went to mahogany hustled over to Mahajan right across the street. Muscle because I had to get there in time and I saw him. And I said, hey, Kevin. And he looked at me. And he was like Hello. And I said can I take a picture because I'm about to say that you're here, and I would like to have proof that you're actually here. And he says I mean, I don't really want all that. And I just did it anyway. But I'm so dumb. I had the flash on you. Fancy awkward. I was like I'm just going to go. So why did you hold on? Why did you ask? If you if you're planning I wanted like say, yes. And he didn't know. Do. Is weird. Or if you if you tell him you're going to sell much wear to ask him and then like. See the move you do there as bad my only stakeout Obama. I only stakeout was my my flash off in the restaurant. Like, oh, my last thing was Ray Allen, leaving the Celtics coming to the heat. And I I happen to live right down the street from the hotel. He was staying at and I was walking my dog and the pool area is right by the sidewalk and I saw him. So I snapped. I I walked past him. Yeah. I turned around and I snapped the picture, and I sent it in and and that so then they were like, oh, we'll find out where he's going next. So they always go to prime on twelve in Miami. That's what I staked out the restaurant across the street, which is fine minute talian. And it turned out they were on to me, and they went to another restaurant. So I'm with you. But I, but that's the move. You gotta take the picture from faraway, even you zoom in that. Would that be? Shootout just did it to visit. Again without permission. So Kevin seen you if you were just from a distance. Yeah. I I don't know. I thought I was just going to be a little more a front about it. And then it just got really awkward when the flash went off. And it was like oh for sure. All right. So coming up next. We didn't get to the L A L as Sports Council voted on their biggest moment of the last calendar year. We'll tell you what that is Donald show starts. Plus what's trending? No. It's actually it's not even in the top. Megan after we get after it nets savannah show here on ESPN LA get to what's trending here in just a second a couple of Kobe stories in what's trending. Yeah. So we'll get to that shortly. But I was telling you guys in the break Mason was making a big deal when you were in here Momo the last time that he wanted to beat me in our fantasy basketball league that I said, I haven't even said a lineup in a month. Like, I'm not in the money like who cares? And he called my pride out in front of you, Dan. Yeah. He did. Yeah. So I said, okay. So since that day about a week or so. Ago. I decided to set my lineups trying a little I was down eight I am now only trailing him by four and a half points in in just about nine days of actual trying. So I am I am I have waged war on Steve lean well looming though, we're both out of the money. You know? Well, there's there's no money in this league, though, we just we just play for pride. But Mason, look, I've a lot of respect for Mason, especially as a radio host. He is not as good of a basketball expert as you. I've literally taken last weeks off of this league one I will still probably catch it. But this league is a reflection of how much you watch basketball. Right. It's just it's super deep. They're fourteen teams. I know every guy in every roster. And I think so Mason, I think has that level of baseball intellect would he would do very well in fancy baseball being this league now Mason's good. But I I would have if you asked me before the season who's gonna finish higher Sodano where Mason, I would have said. Yeah, it's going to be Saddam. Right. She'll have decided to try again, due disrespect the fact that you have kind of neglected. He was almost six follow up into team. And I'm thinking about kicking out a league for that. But since it's your first year. Yeah. Mulligan wwl game. And I hope that you don't do this nectar hadn't done the rodeo thing in basketball. So it was very strange actually do it that way. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That way. And I think oh, no I have I went into this. I do more head to I've done for you. I like the road stuff better. Head to head to me it ended up especially with players resting all the time. You can have long involves lucky have weird we have to. Yeah. Romo is more of a true reflection of what's going on but skirts and life has luck involved. So I feel like that, you know, sometimes things like I remember in one of my leagues and not to get too far off the bench. You guys don't care about our leagues. But I think you like the the competitiveness between us. I remember I went like twenty and two I had the best team. And then I lost the finals, it just happens that that look the the Golden State Warriors blew three to one lead it happens famous. Well, so so this league though is a as offense to the should be the right? It's a mix of intelligence and effort says the same thing as real life. You have to know what you're doing and to put time, it's great, Doug. You'll catch up next. You're listening case be in Los Angeles before we get to what's trending Trudell is upset because he's not gonna finish first or second in the his own league. For the first time down the little dictator over. A ringer. His best friend hired. A winner says what happens the ringer? That's right. So so one of my best this I think is going since twenty ten and I've always finished one or two out of fourteen in part of that again, it is my job to follow league on a daily basis. And I watch a lot of game. He wants to win his only and I wanna win meiomi. I I'm gonna win digs league this year. Least well what he's making a push. But anyway, so my friend who always finishes middle of the pack. I notice I'm like man, you want a great draft that what happened this year? And eventually I realized that he has hired this guy who does analytics for the Vikings like a professional stat nerds who knows exact and those basketball and may start doing some stuff with NBA teams. And he has some system you probably had spreadsheets he has whatever websites, and he has been I almost all year. I thought I have tried to get Tom Harris show to go in on a team with me like from your guys he doesn't do fantasy basketball. He says, and I'm like come on, man. Just help me out here. One time. That right. Entice them. He's still not interested. He is a man of honor. He said. So anyway, let's get to what's hot and what's going on out there. What's trending is brought to us by a friends at the dudes brewing company with five tasting rooms in southern California.

Blu Ray film and a marvel marathon survival kit, so a company called cable TV dot com is looking for candidates to binge-watch there twenty marvel movies in just three days. Do you think you can watch twenty movies in three days, though, that's a lot? And it's only a grand I feel like there's a lot of people who could do that. And wouldn't have to get paid for it. You think there are people do twenty movies in three days? Several hours. I mean, look, especially anyone between the ages of say eighteen and twenty five pre kids. You know, this probably just playing video games all night. Anyway. Yeah. That's not that bad. Yeah. Fair enough. So they have it. So if you wanna do it you can enter their contests cable, TV dot com. That's where you find the contest I next we've got what? Oh, so everyone familiar with Bobin mar Ianovich there. John of each. Thank you. Thanks show. Apparently yesterday, he was he was doing a little Mamba mentality. He was taking shots, and he took a shot kind of a weird kind of shot put shot down run of the free throw line and yelled Kobe what he took the shot. Nice. And then he says now that he can make the shot. He will now transition to yelling, bogey. Yeah. He was sort of he was sort of fading as as as as like a seven three guy could fade because he's not jumping that high. So it's hard of a fadeaway jump shot. Just what's basically a set shot shot? He's he sort of did it was like a fadeaway set shot is how I would describe it. And then he L Kobe, right? So it's kind of dumb. But now he says he's getting now that he can make it. He says he's gonna start yelling. He might. He might be one of say five players in the league that everybody likes that. Nobody ever really doesn't negative word about bovin. Yeah. For sure day mcmenamin is popped into everybody. Show. The next story today is the anniversary of Michael Jordan hitting his famous shot in one thousand nine hundred eighty two in the NCAA tournament. He says that's when he went from just a Mike Jordan to Michael Jordan. What is the most? I feel like I know Dave's answer here. What is the best or biggest shot that you can recall in NCWA tournament history? Yeah. I know what had gone just go right ahead. I mean, the six first-half threes from Gerry McNamara, right? Seven thousand three go onto beat Kansas eighty one seventy eight, but it was really the block, right? Key more. Yeah. Getting the block on michelina corner. That's Edney ties at UCLA, man. First round gaming. Oh second. I think of second. There's only one there's only one answer this question later. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's where I was like ties Eddie coast to coast. Yeah. Very. And they go on to win at all if it's early like, you know, there's the Valparaiso price. Right. That's a great shot, obviously. But yeah, I'm only counts because they go onto win. Right. Right. Like if they would have lost the next game doesn't matter here. So to me like those pivotal type shots now. I was at a Julie game this year withdrew Nichols. Who hit a? Oh, yes. Or beater for Maryland. Right. That's we talked about fifteen years after hit the shot. Still being brought up next. We've got the Philly fans already booing Bryce Harper. He went over three in his hyperlink game. And they after after the third strikeout they were booing him already surprised or not surprised though. I only want to question the framing of this just for argument's sake. I I read I read an article that said that for the most part he got sheared wildly throughout the game. Right. And then he had the third ASO a couple of Bluebirds. But so it was it was people's loud. Did you hear it was loud? I heard the audio. You're the man. That's all right. Let me let me defer then to our Philadelphia native, David, Dave, what do you say for people? Great columnists, Mike C L ski in Philly. That's what became aware I became aware of it through through his rendition of it. And I trust that it was real buse, but get to know like your fan base. There's he knows you knows the great and awards. Already Jersey's top selling jersey by far according to fanatics website since he signed with affiliates. So there's some clear support coming his way, but their standards here. So it's okay. It's also kind of isn't that part of the thing? If you're if you grow up in that Phillies, sports culture, then it isn't even necessarily always a super bad thing. If you do. Yeah. Yeah. I mean draft day sort of the thing you kind of it's like a right of passage almost I think so. Yeah. And you know, he'll get all their love back by his performance hopefully this year day booth. Mike Schmidt there. What every fan base? Like, no, no anybody who's not been booed by their families Sadan over so yesterday. We I was on from my house happens every day on this show. I'm here. The people in their cars yelling. From my house during the dodger game and talking to Saddam about basketball and my son's sprint down. The stairs anti knows. I'm doing radio. She's trying to upstairs sprint down the stairs. Like daddy. The dodgers at six homers. And I was like I had seen one or two thought they were just exaggerating met runs. Yes. They literally eight inch in the time in like a fifteen minute period. That I was started. That was when they had the back to back to back. And I thought they were joking nothing like that. So that's that's the fun part. At least for me about the baseball season's the boys are reengaged again. The dodgers are mashing a million home runs. Now. Speaking of news out of southern California. United Airlines, did you know that they were trying to buy the naming rights to the Coliseum now familiar with that story. So they were and United Airlines offered on Friday to withdraw from sixty nine million dollar deal to change. The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to the United Airlines Memorial Coliseum following criticism that adding corporate name is disrespectful. To the facilities history of honoring troops who fought in died in one. Now, this was a deal that they made with USC because USC I guess, yes. He owns it. All right in their last deal with the they right? They own that stadium. Do you believe that there could have found a way to kind of make this? What do you believe it was disrespectful? Let's start there Ramona now, I don't think it says respectful, but I think, you know, this is kind of what happens now as United Airlines said that they did keep memorial in in the name on campus that was kind of their goal. I think that we are to the stage where nobody knows any history anymore. Right. Like people probably didn't even realize that the memorial that it was the Memorial Coliseum because of World War One, right, right and veterans. I don't I think probably people just didn't even have that sense or that sensitivity. And then when it's brought up. It's like, oh, that's something we need to care about right? And I think like that's just a function of our modern world where things change like, you know. All these times where somebody new will come to town and start talking about like David I've covered the Lakers for a long time. Mike you've covered Lakers for a long time. Like somebody will bring something up that happened like in two thousand eight and it's like revelatory to them. And you're like, yeah. I know I was there. Remember that? Yeah. Like if you were here, but like that's kind of how it is. With like, the younger generation that comes along, or it's also kind of outrage culture run amok. Listen, like, I'm not by any means not trying to disrespect what that intended to honor the fallen, right? But how about a tangible donation to a veteran charity right that that's taken from the naming room? Yeah. Take sixty two million Donut mill to the or something isn't that the knees solution here, everybody's happy? Now. Well, are you going to do better for veterans than you know, a naming right anyway? Yeah. I would agree. But I it clearly they go to the they've decided to withdraw at this point. They're like, yeah. We don't need the grief airlines. That's kind of their stance. Not I've been working on some some stories. I don't want. I don't want to step on this too much. But the whole naming rights thing, basically got started by Dr bus and the great western forum before anybody really thought of interesting, and they kind of thought of okay. Well, there's Wrigley field. But that was the Wrigley family. They used that ended up being kind of a marketing thing, but actor BUSTER sort of came up with that. And now every team is collecting millions. Turned into Washington mutual. Didn't they I believe as a Bank? Okay. So here, here's a even more to that story. So there was a what it was is like the Lakers were Jerry Buss has is a family business. He sold off all his real estate to go by the Lakers. And then the Lakers were their source of income. And there there came a point where he wasn't exactly flush with cash, and he says to a friend of his who I've talked to and told me the story like I need to find a way to come up with cash like I need to like create a new Reverend stream, and the friend said like, you know, when you fly over L, the the form you always fly over it. When you go into Alexa. If you just put something on top of it. It's very memorable from the top. So that's that was one of the ideas that they had is like Staples. Right. Put it on top of the building. Because you always fly over it. It'd be like a really good idea and one thing led to another. And that's how that deal got done with the great. We like great western savings and loan, but it just became the great western forum. That's what's trending brought to us by friends at the dudes, bring company speaking of endorsements five tasting rooms and southern California Santa Monica, Santa Clarita, Torrance, Huntington beach at Thousand Oaks door to hear from the source.

Mason and Ireland HOUR ONE

"Come on. No, you got to win last night modern day growl who in a row you got the football game on Thursday. It's big. Growl for both of us. Excellent. Yeah. I've blown out my voice growling on several occasions. So I do growl. But it's not as I rather. Sure. Like in your quiet moments. You said yourself totally worth it completely. I blew out my voice. The day of the chiefs Rams game. Actually, you are here yet. The chiefs ran realize I was witnessing history. Witnessing history known. I would have some sort of record xactly. Exactly. All right. So what's going on? Let's see John is out today. Brian Chemnitz key is in and the Lakers last night with a big win over the Detroit Pistons, we all wrote down predictions, including you Bris, Greg called me. And I he asked me in this morning's you did this before the game. I'm like, yeah. I mean, I don't have like a wax seal on it or something like medieval time. No, these these should. Yeah. Wax, not game of thrones, Ireland wax seal that would be something. Can work on. All right. So you're gonna give them to you. Or do you want me to read them? I will give them to me. I will read them, Greg, by the way, a very serious meeting with me today. Greg Greg came into the office. And I said, well, let's just let's do a production. Let's do a production meeting with Brian and normally John and I don't do a production meeting together, Greg, and I do it. And then John now, you wouldn't know arrest now. So today, I said, let's get Brian in here in Greg's like. Okay. Maybe we should talk. First you're doing this on the air. You really are. Maybe we should talk. I and I'm like talk about what a well. I've been boiling over lately. I'm like you. You've been boiling over lately. Yeah. I've been boiling over lately. And I said why you've been boiling over he said guys if you won't let me on the air. I knew you're going to rinse Representative. And I said I don't care if you're on the air. No. I mean, I know we had talked about it. I don't care. Yeah. But I mean, really, no doesn't matter. Yeah. But done that was it. I mean close, but yes that was that was a fair representation of the of the conversation. It was fair for the most part. But. Furnace to Greg all the other producers get talk like right Pearson. Talks a lot. I mean, he talks. I did. I mean, I do I mean rodgen and Morales in the mornings. Jeez. Get him to shut up. It's brand comes in here. We gotta talk. I'm like, oh what's going on? Just completely miserable. It's fine. Greg's been let go. I'm gonna talk. All right. So yesterday, we all made a prediction for by the way, these stand ease that around the studio like freak me out. All the sudden, I think somebody's on the other side of the window looking at you have you have one of your own now. Thought we weren't going to do that. I thought the whole idea was to make it. So like everybody got one mine was the last to be done. No, I like everybody got Langley Andy, and I would have won like Clapper sleeper. Like everybody gets out for you. What I proposed was making yours half size half size like short. Yeah. Like almost like look like Trudell life-size. Well, Ireland is his standing taller than he is in real life. That's done on purpose. He's wearing. Sure it is. All right. So we all put our predictions for this game in too hermetically sealed. Envelopes. We will assume yours is for Matic price. Waterhouse Cooper was our attached thirteen one hundred thirteen one hundred psi will start with Brian. Okay. Okay. Brian Chemnitz skis hermetically sealed. Envelope says. Lakers. One thirteen nail that part pistons one eight that's pretty good. That will be tough pretty good. It's pretty close. Jay corales. I believe Jay had the raiders winning this game. Jay's. Is getting the full this thing up. It's like origami. Lakers ninety eight ninety three case right now. I think Brian's is closer to being correct. Greg bergman. Host of the Mr. Rauch show. Oh, by the way, I had celebrities ripping off of that Lakers one away pistons one oh three it's pretty close. Everybody's got a five point spread. Yeah. You had one. Oh, three was the right number, right? No one hundred one hundred one hundred. Okay. So I'm gonna call. Who's closer? We're both equally. Incorrect distance. Yes, saved mine. Equa distantly. Incorrect. We've saved mine for last. We did. Yep. We now, ladies and gentlemen, witness hermetically sealed envelope. Not in my possession at any point since. I gave it to you is that correct absolutely verify. I can verify the not touch anyone else's hands. So he knows exactly what is. Pistons won eleven one. You had them losing losing by eight them losing. You're way off sell that. So I'm gonna call it a tie between actually no we have to declare winnow winner won eleven three. Put of one thirteen one await. I'm going to one eleven one of threes. Very close except you have the wrong team winning. No. He had won eleven I had one eight one zero three three Ryan had one eighteen I should get credit for actually naming score. The Lakers got an actual scores. So I'm right. But I was only three away from the gore and only gore do we take your mic privileges away. We gonna talk. All right. I wouldn't even the point. I on the air that wasn't even the point of the conversation. I want more might time. I've got things to say did cab. Brian you have no rights. I'm supposed to be talking about. Paid. Yeah. All right. So there you have it. That's the first medically sealed game this thing. Like, we doing this Reverend. We're going to do it. Do it for ramps. Cowboys hermetically seal picks for the Cowboys on the ramps. You can do on you doing today. Sure. By the way, lock coming up jar Goff gonna join us somewhere between twelve thirty and twelve forty five. Jared can't make up his mind, but it'll be somewhere during that time. And then at one o'clock over one oh five or something like that. Steve fezzet will do some gambling with the fest last night cow Kuzina gigantic night for the Lakers. Forty one points for coups. And I am beginning to reach the same resolution that you reached and we talked about earlier this morning, Brian it appears to me now. That coups MMA is the clear number two to LeBron on this team. There's no question. And and what's changed is ego back like December. I it's not that he scoring. He's always been stories. Well, Astor scored me, but it's all the other stuff. He he's averaging over seven rebounds almost four assists in decided that in December versus like, five rebounds, and under to assists in November and going back and more importantly, the defense has been really good like re especially relative to what he was before. He was borderline catastrophic right rookie and earlier this season last night. He was part of the reason that Blake Griffin only had sixteen points and for the first time in his career did not down. Yeah. Kouzmin is a guy you can put out there now and expect a decent defensive result. And that is a game changer. We've seen increasingly that his game does compliment LeBron's game. In a in in more away than Brandon Ingram game compliments, just retweeted this from Laker film room. Basically it it's a number that talks about. Kouzmines forty-one points last night came without an ice. Oh, and without a post. Well, so basically he didn't dominate the ball anywhere in that whole stretch. Which is basically unheard of an obviously when you're playing next to ball dominant guys like the Braun Ingram to some degree, whatever that's incredibly valuable because gotta remember too. They're bringing in another star in theory with free agency that I have a third guy like Koussa who can score in bunches, but doesn't on his hands, which is the most employees thing when you're dealing with LeBron. And in Ingram has shown that he does need the ball in the sense. He's a guy that needs the ball in his hands to be able to do the damage that he does he have really good game. The other night with twenty nine points last night at ten points nine remember, he's only played need him to score especially in the second half. I think all ten of his points in the first time. I mean when you when you get somebody going the way Kouzmouk was going on. Just just let them roll. Let them roll. Yeah. I think not to in a row without LeBron. Which is which is huge. And you're hitting a spot in the schedule where they've got three winnable games on the card in front of them at Utah home to Cleveland and home to Chicago on Monday before they hit. Maybe the toughest three-game stretch of the season, which I think goes at okay, see at Houston home to Golden State. But a chance to pick up a few wins here. Lebron supposed to be reevaluated tomorrow. Yes. I don't know that that necessarily means he's going to play be reevaluated here. So he'd have to oh. Oh, so valuation and get on the earliest he will play with the sun Sunday. I mean in that even that seems like a stretch like they the Lakers will likely practice on Saturday. And I there's part of they're not practicing today. Right. They're just going to travel and go to Utah, whatever. And part of me wonders if they're reserving that practice day in case the evaluation on the Brown is good. So that they can give him a little bit of a run on Saturday. And if he gets through it, okay, put him out on the floor on. So I don't think you want him just going out and playing, but we know this. I he's not going out on the trip. He is. I mean, I mean, I guess I don't see maybe joins not today. He's not on the plane today getting checked out here on Friday. By Dr right? So unlikely hops on a plane and flies for even if the doctor's like, you're looking good. You know, you can start doing stuff again. But that there there is part of me at least that just in connecting dots assist. Not like something. The Lakers told me, but you wouldn't wanna put LeBron on the floor in less. He's practiced in had a chance to run and then slept on it. And see what it's like the next day. So you need a Saturday practice to do that ahead of Sunday's game. They didn't practice today. And they could have some wondering if they're reserving that day for that. Okay. Got it. Why declaration? Yeah. Wild speculation. Which is totally five. Yeah. All right. Come back next something I heard Jay Williamson on the get up today. You know, the get up do the the getup says more big program. It's it's the show. I still from all the time I stole which William said a little bit earlier, and we'll play that for you. Coming up next. Mason in Ireland Brian candidates gained for John ESPN LA. Hey mace. Greg.

We'll have your next chance to win by the way open the phones because then any point today there could be a blind call if you happen to be a blind call today. Eight seven seven seventeen ESPN I'm not saying we're going to do it right now 'cause that wouldn't know blind. But when we do a blind call you win a Mason in Ireland shirt that's exciting. Hey mace. What if Greg was the blind call? Yeah. That's a good way. Just took the bid away from the break, and I would call. Yeah. Way to bring you onto the show, and he'd get a t shirt. Yeah. Greg double win. Greg does the the mon- is a called Monday night raw? Wrestling, Lakers, raw and Brian loves to make fun of the name. All right. So mister, raw what was your takeaway from last night? He thinks me. I really appreciate the airtime. Mesa. Thank you. It's this is all true dream, come true. Thank you know. I thought that this is very much what we've seen because Kyle Kuzma on the floor. With Brandon Ingram opens up so much that now it's you see a different team than when he's not out there because we're talking about a bunch in that last segment, but because of him they're winning games without without LeBron. Right. That was pretty raw. Now that was raw. Mr short. You know, here's what Jay Williams said this morning on the get up. What is quiz my as far as future non tradable asset? Everybody tell you right now if you're magic. The one guy not trade his how he's how bail on this team that can believe LeBron James we've seen LeBron James play with Lonzo ball games are very very New England and the March James minutes Erstad unit for a while. They struggle to exist on the same plan together everybody else's tradable asset except how. So by the way, that's recorded in a very very sophisticated way. It involves me holding my iphone up to the TV and recording the sound is that, but it's it's good enough quality. I think I mean, it's okay, I could go back and actually go to get up and get the actual sound so much better. You're so busy being on the air. I actually I this is producing I'm actually leaving this on because it's so much. Funnier listening to your phone than the actual sound. So this is on purpose there. Yeah. No. I do record stuff off the TV all the time. It works. It works. Yeah. So there's no I mean, cow Kuzina has emerged in a really big way. He certainly scores as you mentioned. He's filling up more Collins in the box score right now. But the idea that he is an untradable asset is ridiculous conscious. Like if somebody says you can have Anthony Davis. Right. But you gotta give Kyle Kuzma young Kaori clear. Caught. Jay Williams says that we can't do that even for Anthony Davis untradable asset. I don't believe there is such a thing as an untradable SF. Would you trade LeBron for Anthony Davis? Yeah. I mean, everybody's tradeable. Everybody's trading. Would you trade? Lebron for Anthony Davis. I'd consider it. Yeah. I would too just for the age thing. Are you on us? I would think that through oh for Jaanus. Yoenis was good last night. Twenty one rebounds last night. He's just good. Yeah. Shown up James harden. Although I still think MVP of the league this year is going to wind up being harden if the rockets keep doing this. But the point is that Lakers are trading LeBron or anybody's making these offers known everybody is tradable. Yeah. Like, the, you know, and it's especially like if you're talking about getting genuine superstars, I wouldn't put who's in a Bradley Beal deal, right? Like that's not enough of an upgrade. But for Anthony Davis. Yeah. See I'm very much in the same position as Anthony Davis is right now. I've got a contract through June. I have not signalled whether or not I'm going to stay or not there's a chance for you're not allowed to be traded to Boston yet. Can't can't Boston. Yeah. I think that there's no question. You would move cow coups my and the other three young guys in a deal for Anthony Davis. And I've been saying this. I'm sure I I got to believe this conversation is happened at some point somebody at the Lakers front office has to have picked up the phone. Call del Dempsey and said Dell we will give you all four of these young guys and Dell has probably said I want to wait until the summer. But if you wait until the summer, then Boston gets involved, it becomes a really different scenario for the Lakers lately. But that doesn't mean you don't try because the Lakers offer will not get any better between now and July the first they're not gonna have anybody else know this these four young guys are your tradable assets. So whatever offer the make the Lakers. Make today is the same one. They will be able to make Raja. Ally. The I if if Anthony Davis makes he's not going to resign New Orleans. The Lakers you you try to get away with offering less now. But it's the pelicans aren't gonna take that the only way you get him. Now is if you give them all of the things right all for the young guys, probably. Whatever she just all of the stuff. That's the only way you get them now. Yeah. What there's a lot lot. But saying today that call would have been made by now. I don't if I'm down first thing. I'm doing right now is talking to Anthony Davis. Right. I'm gonna find out from Anthony Davis. Anthony, let gimme gimme a heads up. You've been a really good New Orleans. Pelican we've loved having you here. We would love you to stay. But do you know if you're gonna leave or not and because let's face it after Davis can get the same money. Now as he can get at the end of his contract. Yes. More or less. I mean, you get about the same going to another team the money difference because he'll do that one year one year one year thing until he signs like another giant until the bird yet. He's he's going to be plenty rich like he says I want to win. About that plenty rich like what's the difference between a hundred and fifty million two hundred ten million sixty million. But the short answer that in a lot of ways is ego. Yeah. Yeah. It's true. From a practical standpoint probably didn't make much of difference in your life. Oh, it does make a practical difference in your life sixty million dollars. If you have a hundred fifty already sure sure it does there's difference between being rich NBN mega rich hundred fifties. Mega-rich? It's it's rich coming back next. Not like Jeff Bezos says wife, but no, it's rich. That's coming up next for you. Let's we expect your Goff. And I've got some encouraging numbers about the Rams and their playoff matchup against the Cowboys on Saturday, Mason, Ireland, ESPN LA. Hey, what's going on? It is two days before the Rams take on the Dallas. Cowboys at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Bryant Kaminski's in for John. You know when I was a little kid. Brian Little Steve little Steve run around. Hieaux? I was a Los Angeles ramps fan, and it all the sudden dawned on me when I was in L Salvador, what steered me to the ramps. Somebody asked me what Sinai was and I am an Aries. And when I was a little kid. I was fascinated by like reading the zodiac every day. And that's how that was the origin of be me becoming a Rams fan. But as a little kid in Ohio. My dad was my dad was a hard ass when we were growing up. Right. He was a challenge in guy. And so every year it seemed like the Rams would play the Cowboys in the playoffs. And so having like five times in like seven years late seventies in the eighties. And that's that's the golden era. That's when I was I was ten. Ten twelve years old and my dad was acting ten twelve years old, and we would really go after each other on this stuff. And and I'm not making this up. I would get sick for a week after a ranch loss. I would be sick for a week. It took me a long time to get over it. And so this feels like a return to my childhood. So let me Rams host the Dallas Cowboys. I'm sure a Pisces. Would you be a dolphins fan? Then is that how this would have turned out just an Aries is. So clearly Aram, right? But a Pisces is a fish a fish. I if you're Leo you'd be alliance fan how it didn't hurt that the Rams were really good in the guy. So that makes some serious, man. They were really good in the seventies. Yeah. Some kind of the stores fan. My brother was a raiders fan. My dad was a Cowboys fan. And I'm like they've got a team in every single year in the playoffs. I'll go with the ring. But you're not picking the one that they like ever ever go one of two ways they either pick their parents team. Yeah. Or they pick the team that's going to anger their parents the most correct? And so you went the other way. I was a contrary. Yes. Yes. And I am told this to this day. And in fact, a good idea when you're growing up in northeast, Ohio and northwest Ohio to contrarian. Yeah. Probably the you're you're probably gonna be on the right side of most arguments. The right base everywhere. But in northwest, Ohio, the big country, man. Yeah. So one of the numbers that has been bouncing around a lot is that the Rams allowed five point one yards per carry. Yes, during the course of this season. And of course, the Dallas Cowboys have got as equal Elliott. I would also like to point out that the Rams have made their hey this year a lot of it on play action passing and the Dallas Cowboys are twenty-seventh against the play action during the season. And so that plays into a ram strength. I think that the game is what do you think the game comes down to if the Rams get up early, right? Then I think you make is equal Elliott one dimensional. It's not that you take you. You can't take him out of the game. Because he's their best receiver Amari Cooper is really slowed down after that start. But what you can do is make it. So he's one dimensional. You're not gonna get thirty Zeki Elliott carries? Right. And where the so those first couple of possessions and the lake the Lakers. The Rams have not been a great first quarter team particularly defensively against the good teams, especially so you know, those first couple drives where you hold Dallas to a field goal. You keep them off the board. Whatever it is. Or you do something similar to what you did against AirAsia where you put up a bunch of points early down can't come back from that. And now they cannot and now the Rams playbook opens fully you can do the play action you so I think for me it's an early lead in early lead. Yeah. Because that way. Really takes Dallas out of everything that they do. Well. So the one thing that makes play action compelling is if you're able to run the football, I think they've got to find a way to get Todd Gurley involved as early as possible in this game. And that may mean throw into him out of the backfield. But at least to get him involved in the game because you're much more likely to get a defense to bite on play action. If your threat to run is credible, and it's sticking with right because there've been a couple games where McVeigh's gotten away from it quickly. And they haven't gone back to this is one of those. Okay, pound the ball three or four drive in rely on your defense. If you need to to make sure you're not behind by ten this process over because what you in the first quarter with girly is going to kind of bear fruit in the fourth. I think you know, the other thing is the since a key to leave came back from injured reserve. The Rams have allowed only two touchdown passes to wide receivers which means that if you do have to sell out and stop the run obviously to leave is done a great job back there. And you would assume that's a competition. But I mean, you look at what the did the beginning of the season with tha leap end of the season with delete. Clearly that combination makes difference Cup Titian, by the way. You don't see San Francisco had been playing much money of but come on. They've been playing much much better. Let come on. I think they'd won four of six but come on. I'm making that up just going to own it. I making that up San Francisco one something like four out of six. Hey, look that up. What it San Francisco? How many San Francisco perfect opportunity get some airtime? Yeah. It is a great opportunity. Oh break. We may never know the answer coming up next for you. I should've never called myself on it coming up next. Jared Goff quarterback of the Los Angeles. Rams will join us Mason Ireland ESPN LA, but we missed it missed it. ESPN LA Mason Ireland ready for Saturday night at the Coliseum. The Los Angeles Rams my beloved Rams hosting the Dallas Cowboys and joining us right now is the quarterback of the Rams Jared Goff. Jared. Thanks for coming on. How are you? I'm doing everything is good. Everything's good. So let's go back to last year. He played a playoff game. It didn't go our way. What did you learn more than anything else from that experience? I think about you know, our whole team and myself, and and I was different. We are this year. You think about that? And we talked about it today in our team meeting. How it's you know last year. We did some good things we were we to are. You know without without a better word. We were happy to be there. You know, we were we were very excited to make the playoffs. And and this year, we expect to win that we expect the move on the playoffs, and we expect to do all this stuff. So it's different mentality. And we feel good Jared. A lot of players kind of think of playoff games in one of two ways kind of generalized a little bit either. Like, it's the same. It's just another football game. And they treated that way. Other guys look at it is, you know, it's different. It's the playoffs. You got a you know treated a little bit differently. How do you approach a game like Saturday? I don't think I approach it differently. I think my approach the week is exactly the same and every game plan. I my career. My approach should remain the same. And I think what those change though, is is just understanding, you know, that there are some moments that are, you know, you have to gift to be aware of there's big moment. Big games. And we've had some big games. We've got the big moment this year. So we experienced stuff and this game different and the same breath. There's every playoff game you playing for forever is going to be against a good team. I guess you could defense against pass rush. And you have to be aware of all that yesterday. We talked to coach today, and he told us that Todd Gurley is progressing. Well, expect to see him on Saturday. But C J Anderson had a couple of great games there. How surprised were you about what you saw from him? I don't know surprises the word, but I think he's he doesn't get stuff. He's he's been a productive back in this league. And when we were able to sign him knowing that Todd was maybe a missing time, you know as excited, you know, he's he's a great back. And the guy was a lot of production. And what do you do the last two weeks was you know, indicative of who is sounds? I talked to Josh Reynolds about this a little earlier in the week. And and what it is to play without Cooper Cup. And it seemed like the offense got off track a little bit for a few weeks. What have you been able to kind of figure out over the last few without Cup there? And what changes when he's not available? Little things change such a great player, and we miss him tremendously and and stuff to replace. But I think with Sean this. Oh, well is he understands sending understands his players you understand how to put us in our in our best position. You know? What is what is Josh really good at? What is Robert? We're really good at. Let's Brandon really good. What's Todd really good at in winning plays that fit that? And then running plays that you know, I like, and I'm at in federal line is that that's what his best strength is. And that's what he's done. So you do you feel like the offense is kind of at a place now where I it is fully functional without without Cup. Because you've made those adjustments. Oh, no doubt. Yeah. No. I felt like you know, we we've been fully functional for for a while now without him and obviously miss him. But Josh stepped up really, well, you know, there was a little kind of stumble there during the final quarter of the season bears. Eagles lions to some degree where where you struggled a little bit where the offense struggled a little bit. As you look back at that. Now, obviously finished really strong as you look back at that. Now, do you consider that to be sort of a slump? I don't know you go through sixteen games. And if you can only pick out three then I think I'm doing all right? But you know, the the lions game we won. So I don't I don't consider that you know, anything that we want to change anything differently. We won that game Quincy division. I game and the bears defense manically this well, logging things, and I think, you know, we came out slow against again there another playoff team won the first round the playoffs and did some good things. But you know, side of that I'll say those two games I'd say, you know, I think played pretty well. I think we re well offensively confident feel good coming into this playoff game and excited to get out there talking with the Rams quarterback Jared Goff. The cool thing about playing the Cowboys is it's the Cowboys in like, you know, there's history in Rams versus Cowboys going back in the playoffs. And you know, it becomes you know, a huge game nationally because it's the Cowboys. The bad news is a lot of Cowboys fans are going to try to scale the walls of the calcium and getting into the game. When you think about what the atmosphere is going to be like in, you know. On saturday. What are you anticipated? Yeah. We're we're trying to plan for everything, you know. Obviously, we've done some good things this year and have built fan base more. So over the last year expect our fans will be there and expected to be loud for us at the same time. We understand they have a big down here and do travel well and expected to be loud for them too. So it's a little bit of back and forth. And we had some similar experiences in last year's games like that even this year with the Packers game the way they travel and the way they came out. And then we're loud for their team. And we really get through that and get to win. You know, I just looking at the LA weather. It's been kind of spotty all week long. The the weather for right now is for Saturday. There's a sixty one percent chance of rain at five o'clock in the afternoon as the game kicks off does that whether change by the way, and I you know, Pete Carroll was he would say there's a forty percent giants thirty nine thirty. Does that change your preparation at all does your game change at all? If it is raining. No it hasn't. No, no won't. I we'll see. I don't know. I'm not I'm not I'm meteorologist, and if it says, it's gonna rain it might might not. We'll see I know. It's been changing all we can. We'll see how much have you played in the rain. A bunch of college just being on the west coast and being up in Oregon and Washington, you know, even LA I played in ring game in college and playing some putting some actually my first game with my career was working came. Mistaken didn't win less need come up in interview. Cow wasn't raining when you did your workout Orrin. It was pouring rain. I it's funny. Remember that? Yeah. It was pouring rain and. Yeah. I thought I thought it performed pretty well. Yeah. No. I know I remember them saying they were impressed. They gave you an opportunity to reschedule the workout or wait until the weather cleared up. But you just went when a write about your business. Yeah. Yeah. You can't control it go about your business and don't expect it if it does rain to affect us much. All right. Well, listen Jared. We are all counting on you. We are. We are really excited about Saturday night at the Coliseum. I will be there. Bryan. You'll be there. Right. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Would not miss this for anything. We can count on you guys being there, then we're good. We we are there. You got. If it does rain is there somebody whose job is holding umbrella over you like well, keep you dry ten to you over there. We do have some people over there. Good yet. Somebody reliable this important weekend. Okay. We won't. All right. Thank you very much, Jerry. There's Jared Goff quarterback of the Los Angeles. Rams. Gotta you gotta keep Jared clean. You know when you stand there on the sidelines. I feel golfing, bro. I feel good. They're going to win this game. Good about we're going to New Orleans. If we're going how about we're staying home and facing the eagles. I don't feel good. I feel confident, but I'm not sure I feel confident the saints are gonna lose. Although Nick foles is a is a wizard assuming we win some sort of sorcerer and if New Orleans wins Norlin twins. We will be in New Orleans next weekend me and want are going to the game. That's awesome. Yeah. And we could probably squeeze a couple of days of shows out of that. Right. Of course, you can you do Thursday and Friday from from New Orleans. Sure, there's a ESPN New Orleans somewhere down there. And he asked him New Orleans. I'm sure they have a good time to I've actually been on ESPN New Orleans, and there's nothing more fun than hearing those people say Chemnitz no seriously, Ernie SPN Orleans than they struggle with with our last oh down there with the accent. Yeah. Right. Thick cajun. I can't even pretend to say it was not not accurate. All right. Coming up next for you. We have got some gambling with the feds you wanna put some money down the Fez's been unbelievable in his his best bets of the week. I think he ended up finishing twelve and three maybe twelve and four right. Zili used hot of the end like the forty Niners were. Yeah. Impr-? Hey, by the way, the forty Niners did win two of their final three leading up to the Rams which is not for of six. No. But to I knew they'd been planned better. Okay. They were peaking. They were peaking point they'd want to out of three. All right. The feds coming up next Mason in Ireland ESPN LA.

"The ramifications you're listening to Caspian Los Angeles a huge day for the rams as they go in and by the way the jalen Ramsey trade is for this year but it's also for next year and beyond you assume that they make that trade they weren't gonNA keep Marcus Peters this is why I begged the raiders not to Trade Khalil Mack. Yup I don't care how many draft picks you got chances are you're not going to and one guy who knows that better than us is the rams all pro punter who joins US each and every week Johnny Hecker brought to us by I five California Dot Com the occasion and and you guys especially in the second half felt like you were you were swimming upstream the whole time what do you think happened against the niners I mean cashing in on the draft picks the draft is a crap shoot this is a great move by the rams and the rams do this a lot they go for it a lot was unusual johnny in that the other losses you guys were in it until the last play like you guys almost all the way back against Tampa Bay we all talk last week that Griggs are light makes that kick nine times out of ten probably nine and a half out of ten in Seattle but this game felt different than niner seemed to really rise in Clay Matthews and now they're bringing in Jalen Ramsey does it does it feel different in the locker room to send a message to you guys that hey we're going for it and we're going for the rams definitely tend to move and nothing's really expected so it's kind of a a rams rammed his move but I'm really happy I think that in the Locker Room when it team brings in a big name guy like this and this you've been around for awhile since you've been on the team they brought in Brandin cooks this year connect couple of those deep balls overthrow pressure that doesn't allow those balls off you know we're we're talking a totally different game and some commentary football where we just missed on a couple of sequences you know it's it's difficult to really to really say but I never felt we were out of you know I think from an organizational standpoint I felt we were in it until the very end you know if in the coliseum before then direct so I I love this trait I think that it is a anytime you can get the best player at his position you do it you know it's GonNa position us to to really add some great players and provides them death three is that are hurting out so you know I do wish mark is the best new program in Baltimore he's been a great teammates I really just hope that he can continued success and we'll see him a couple of weeks johnny what's it like it do you notice the vibe in the middle of the game where you know we could've gone into halftime tied or with the lead you know and and you you see the things that you may just makes you sick now yeah definitely I mean it definitely tips the kind of the organizations had if you will you know kind of going all in on this season you know hopefully they can negotiate rei man I am I am great I am yeah doing awesome join this day off and and you know world wind of a day but I am you know they're great learning opportunities I think we're going to be a better team moving forward from them it it sucks and it stinks especially losing three in a row like that and it's disheartening but you know coming back into work on Monday we had a bunch of guys who were hungry lifted their butts off recovered the best they could and and we're really attentive meetings and and that's what you look for you know there's no office no guys hanging their head saying what was the hungry team and we're just gonNA look for every opportunity began to grow what was the mood like in the locker room on Sunday it was tough pill pretty good I have a feeling something was going to happen today I did I did not I mean this is you know whose house Ramps House thing I finally got my chance to do it would think did you hear it I didn't hear the let's go Johnny Hecker at the end but as we care about what we're doing we love who were doing it for and let's just do it together with come together and find ways to just be scrappy and win more games I told you I was going to do the you know it was you know definitely a bit down but you know I think we're mature team we realized that you know we can't let any any losses define us we gotta just move forward bring well we're talking reading and singing through this process with them you know we're seeing home every night and you know he loves it as much as ever does he have a favorite son draft anything like that nothing crazy nothing crazy we stick with them Sunday school hit Jesus loves me there you know Jesus loves me yes I know yeah it's something with Jalen long-term but it's a deal where we really see the importance in these remaining ten games that are season and we're going to go all right so the game Sunday running on the treadmill singing baby shark in your head you know

there was a key play in this game where it appeared that you guys we do more replay less replay. What's your opinion on on just how we could maybe make this better yeah I would love for there to be some sort of great trooper you know we're just making sure he's getting all of his fruits and Vegetables Guinness on a nice little smoothie Diet and you know he's he's a trooper he's having fun and then we'll fly over to London on Thursday I believe after the game so it's it's GonNa be a long trip way for us but you know thank goodness for facetime and the technology today I don't know how much outside football outside NFL football you're you're able to watch because of one year old but I'm sure you're wear this that that the debate bouma very much for coming on man we appreciate it hang time with Johnny Hecker sponsored by I five your baby's brain doesn't require fancy toys videos talking reading and singing are the tools you hey reminder my guy matt under the GM Alexa Santa Monica Intuitive Santa Monica he has top notch customer service and great specials right now yeah that was wonderful thank you thank you we're talking as we do every Johnny Hecker in sponsored by I five your baby's brain doesn't require fancy toys or videos talking Tober here a couple of mature Santa Monica you can lease the twenty twenty corolla hybrid with an estimated range of seven hundred miles in one tank for two sixty-nine a month now the ball and that's just illegal illegal motion and You know something that we talked about during the week but just a unique situation and a learning experience for us it really sucks we didn't get a turnover Santa Monica on Santa Monica both of them L.

X. lease it for three twenty nine a month need talk read and sing it changes everything to learn more visit I five California dot com hey say hi to jed-forest man I will you know a guy trying but not having much it's seventy one now greg the Molina just hit a home run that qualifies as a rally the cardinals in this series that qualifies as a rally yet fasttrack is coming up for you in just a couple minutes I got a good fasttrack written today excellent by the way the the cardinals yeah you know it a lot of stuff head shoulders knees and coach trying to get a moving his body identifying now most importantly johnny have you in if the nationals win it will be their first trip ever to the world series and it it did they ever go as the wash no they were never the Washington nationals You know booth review system a sort of accrue crew up in the booth looking at video angles kind of being able to to be an eye in the sky for the and this is how this could affect the dodgers angels and others if the nationals make it to the world series they have to Monday oh that's right a huge homerun dodgers from behind eighty one to knock the astros as I had that great team with Ellis Valentine and potential free agents that everyone else will want yeah one is Stephen Strasburg and the other is Ren don't Yep and Anthony Ren Dome they were the Senator David the Montreal Expos and the Expos never right right the expos came close a couple of times you know who broke the heart of the Expos procedural thing where a situation came up where we were communicating at the line took us a little bit longer to get the snap off and just it's a really it's a lot of earn Cromartie and I think Tim Raines was on that team and they Rick Monday broke their heart hit a home run in Montreal he said after that his luggage never plus tax for thirty six months with only twenty nine ninety nine down call Matt Unger set up a VIP appointment lexa Santa Monica and Toyota Santa Monica in showed up at the hotel and it just mysteriously disappeared most people think that the best Montreal Expos team was in nineteen ninety-four strike gear the and is somebody buster says the dodgers are interested in but if they win the world series they make a bunch more money and and I wonder if they use it Jeff Howe is jet johnny yet is great jet has a little bit colder Alice report working through the the attitude adjustment that comes with having sure he's been stadium looking at all the camera angles being out with you know affirm or disprove their calls and just keep the gay moving and keep things accurate because I think there's a lot of things that that don't need to be officials what they're watching down there is is madness it's uncontrolled chaos you know super fast too yeah when things happened it happened in the blink of an eye they have snapped it reviewed in certain things that caused that could be changed their on the spot there's just someone with a simple cameron up top all right hey johnny thank you this is kind of the nationals pushing all their chips into the middle and saying all right we're going for it and wouldn't it be strange if the nationals win the world series the year after they so the big news of the day is that the Los Angeles Rams have officially acquired Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars their division go out and win the world series. That's kind of weird yes it is and it's an IT lends itself to the question do you want the dodgers don't typically go all in and beyond and it was another example of a franchise that is willing to go for it you know this is the this is in addition to being for beyond this year this is an acknowledgement that they are in a dogfight right now and despite the fact that they are three and three day still bryce Harper Wok yeah you know they tried to keep him they got outbid by the Phillies Yeah Maverick the Phillies can win all in signed him it's not just going to be at cornerback form this year arguably the best cover corner in the NFL but who's going to be with them once they get to so fi stadium drake and they they never got a chance to To prove it I think Tim Walla con that Tina Tim on that team who later went to work for I believe that there are a playoff team and they're going to push that way there at Atlanta Monday our friend Vinnie bunch your has reported that Jalen Ramsey is corbin ten strikeouts through four innings including the first three wow wow yeah he's dealing all right x play still a decent amount and You know we just never trying to hang over our head just continue to produce the next time we get an opportunity Mike keep like you don't you remember that song from years and years ago we've got high I for some reason I like that song and I started singing it to them and Johnny I hate that the dodgers in in but this would you'll see you'll see some expos hats in the stands if if the nationals make it to the world series or sure now what's interesting Jalen Ramsey appears on Mason Ireland tomorrow on the other side of the coin we don't get no ahead head Ted he's coming Jalen ah it they gave up a twenty twenty first rounder a twenty twenty one first rounder and they gave up a twenty twenty one fourth-rounder for a Guy Cook Todd Gurley Aaron Donald Jalen Ramsey all in so now they're loaded it's a star driven town the rams have stars trying to be a super bowl contender when they go into that new stadium creamier corner and and I made this point earlier in the show they now have the at five different positions the highest paid guy at that spot jared Goff Brandon US Caesar's took a thousand dollar money line bet on Toledo too or was it did Bowling Green to win Yup Toledo to beat Bowling Green last Saturday now Toledo was favored by twenty five and a half to beat bowling green the better on his lost a thousand bucks serious question besides wanting to bring this up to two year bowling green horace what could in dollar bet had Toledo won the game would have made twenty five dollars o- on a thousand orbit instead Bowling Green won by thirteen and the better they have do you want to go back and look at all your kicks did the did the officials get that one right or could I could I argue that it wasn't yeah it was a penalty it was just beat superstition now I'm guessing he may have had a bunch of thousand dollar bets against the money line on a bunch of different tomorrow on the show he's showing up tomorrow we got a stylish fan okay news all right mace According to Darren rebel expected to be in uniform for them on Sunday and I love this trade I think that what you're what you're trying when you have all these draft picks is to find a guy like Jalen Ramsey uh-huh so I think having a crew in each stadium where they can you know buzz up maybe not New York because they're they're busy washing every game that's going on but you know someone that's there let's face it the rams had huge issues at corner a keep Ta- leaves out for the next eight weeks on injured reserve and Marcus Peters just wasn't grading out at well at all now they've got the simply been the circumstances of why somebody would make that bet to Betty money line bet on Toledo that would only pay him twenty five dollars traded to Baltimore Low bit earlier today Jalen Ramsey figures into the future for this team he'll play in the new stadium for the ramps Yeah I mean for twenty five bucks it's really not worth and yeah I just think at some point I would look at it and go okay I'm betting one thousand dollars the best case scenario is first of all that money to keep Strasbourg Enron don't buy the same equation goes to the Astros with Garrett Cole but the Astros won the world series two years ago they already want it right and let's see if it works but I think if you're rams fan you have nothing to but to be excited because you've got your better than when you woke up this morning that's for sure that's right I the money line bet means you're just betting on Lsu to win the game right better like the whoever Alabama's playing do you feel like Alabama's GonNa Leave Mitch Okay feel like Alabama's GonNa win that game okay put a thousand dollars on it you may not win a bunch of broader strategy half to believe it's part of a broader bowling green tea isn't that a rivalry game it is a rivalry game yesterday I think bidding US said Ucla right rivalry back there. Yeah so I would never especially strategy it's almost like investing and if you have ten of those sure winners maybe you wind up clearing a percentage of of the money of out there SOWS super hyped. You're trying to get the crowd into it Yeah Oh man you know and you know not work out like that a little disheartening but you know what we trapped find who is the catcher from Florida they stay Muto mood till they went out and gun judge Sikora varietal and didn't work yup and if the nationals who were you know can excel at the NFL level we know this guy can play at the NFL level most people feel he's the best cover corner in the League and and and beat no bowling green beat to leak out right yeah right so they were huge underdogs so the this Caesar's took a thousand dollar bet on the money line between straight next four years fast track Mason and Ireland Espn La here we go it's time for fasttrack and let's see one side of the coin John I'm so so little value but I mean okay so let's let's take what was the big game this let let's say out who'd Alabama play no no the the big game was these three hundred million dollar contracts do you need them or do they just let Strasbourg and run don't walk there's a whole bunch of decisions that need to be made it's well Notre Dame USC being game and then at the bay the really became was Lsu Florida okay so Lsu Beach Florida Yeah Forbidden If I would've been on bowling green that would admit I would've won twenty five thousand correct yeah yeah yeah so here's here's how money like that would have helped me last night had I during that I would never take a thousand dollars if my best case scenario is I win twenty five yeah I would just bet it on bowling so here's how money line bet is curtailed tomorrow we are at normal time three o'clock see then Mason Ireland E._s._p._N.

It's monday which means it's time for first and ten with your host vinnie. Bunsen your and sam gordon. What's up raider nation. Welcome back to vegas nation. I in your monday do For everything raiders are related. I know it's the off season but there's no oxygen in the nfl. Been doing this long enough to understand that cycle that. Nfl news cycle is twenty. Four seven twelve months a year at our february when second and all of a sudden You know we're we're we're talking about moves we're talking about trades. We're talking about free agency. We're talking about veteran players hitting the open market. We're talking about salary caps All of that stuff and the league. Your hasn't even started. Where about a month away a little bit less than a month away actually from the league year actually starting that kicks off free agency and of course. The draft soon follows so The nfl is Is already in full gear. And the raiders are as well working there. You know what's off over at the facility in henderson lineup. things to get themselves In position to to better make a run at ploughs next year before we get started. And before i bring in my co host Sam gordon just wanna let you guys know that. The show is sponsored by sam and ash injury law and presented by by blue wire hustle. Sam how you doing many though you'll well you can closer and closer closer to that. Twenty one league years exactly end You know it's it's almost already kind of started when Big trade last week that weaving we we we taped before the carson wentz trade went down Carson wentz obviously moving from the philadelphia eagles to the indianapolis colts What was it. We had a third round pick and a third round pick that could become a or a second round pick. I think it is I have to look back at the The exact details but certainly it wasn't a matthew stafford type deal There is no way that the eagles were going to get to first round picks for carson wentz. You're talking about a player sam Who needs some major Tender yup major tlc mentally or physically or whatever the case might be. The colts need to get him back in order And you know so you know while the eagles may have been trying to market carson wentz as the two thousand and seventeen carson wentz. The reality is he's twenty twenty. One carson wentz major work that needs to be that certainly is certainly. Is you take a look at what he did. Last season completing fifty seven point four percent of his passes and that's in a league. Now were these days. Many sixty two sixty three sixty four seems about the door when you at the top guys that are closer to the communists. Completion percentages are around seventy now so carson wentz on the lower end of that spectrum. Right he led the nfl. With fifteen interceptions against touchdown passes and that's despite only playing twelve games. So you figure if he plays for more games at number probably goes up. No quarterback in the nfl took more sacks than carson wentz. He took fifty sacks last year. Lost three hundred twenty six yards Do two sacks. of course his his record is records starting quarterback or three eight one and the eagles as we know. We're pretty much a disaster a total dumpster. Fire all around and it was pretty clear that there was that this marriage. If you will get. I was getting to a point of no return. A lot of turnover in front office in the coaching staff and in that game was turn over on the field and this and like you said twenty seventeen cars for months vinnie eleven a starter four terrorists terrorists in the upper thirty three touchdowns. Seven interceptions led the league in total. Qbr seventy eight point. Five hundred passer rating over a hundred looked like an up and coming. You know one of the franchise quarterbacks. And i think for the most part the talent is still there right. He didn't he didn't get any smaller. He's six five two hundred forty dollars. You can move around. He's got a massive warm But like you said it's it's so the kind of the mental makeup of him. I don't know what happened in philadelphia what causes to deteriorate. But he clearly wasn't the same quarterback or flying at the same level. So now you dobrynin situation but indianapolis or you have his former offense coordinator. Frank is coach. A dang good head coach. In my opinion you have a big time. Offense line was he did have in philadelphia. You have young emerging skill position players who have jumped to the backfield. You have michael. Pittman along with an established solidified veteran in. Cyo still think has a couple of good years left in him with a pretty good defense so situation speaking if carson wentz can't make this thing work out in a frank y and they can't figure out how to get this going. I mean what better situation is therefore him. This feels like the last chance. And i understand why the goals took a flyer on because the talent there so i can see you convince yourself. There's still some talented upside. You're right absolutely. And you know the the philadelphia eagles just did not do carson wentz right whatsoever and i know that you know you look at fifty sacks and you know i'm i'm thinking two things offensive line in shambles Maybe a quarterback. That's just hold onto the ball a little bit too long not seeing the field But i've seen carson wentz play an up close and personal and i go back to two thousand and seventeen at the los angeles memorial coliseum at shootout with los angeles rams And you had carson wentz Against jared goff and if you would've told me Then link was an october or mid even november. Might have been. I think it was november. If you would have even december but anyway if you would've told me then That those two quarterbacks who put on a show at the coliseum would no longer be with their team's perspective teams rear three years later or so. I would've told you you were nuts. But it just shows you sam The the the turnover in the nfl is extraordinary. sometimes I'm not quite sure that We see that as often in any other sport but it just seems like now the way things are stacking up in football now rosters get turned over a pretty quickly so but i do believe that carson wentz still has talent. I think you're right. I think he goes to a perfect situation. You really couldn't you know For him go to a better. Maybe maybe would have been. What like tom brady. Golden the tampa. Bay buccaneers Because that was a darn good situation for brady to go to. But when you're talking about the familiarity with frank reich arguably the best offensive line in the nfl definitely within you know the top two top three Offensive lines of the nfl emerging running game with the young running back and You know some weapons to definitely You know You know play with and then also this. This this upcoming defenses. well it couldn't have gone better or work out better for carson wentz and i do think that is a turnaround. That's that's very possible you put. I've seen it too many times. We saw with ryan tannehill You know you go all the way. Back guys like jim plunkett. Who looked lost Go to the raiders and win two super bowls. It happens. history has shown that that It's it's possible steve. Young was broken quarterback in san francisco now granted or be in tampa bay granite. He goes to. San francisco has sit behind joe montana for a few years but You know he ended up at a hall of fame. He's a holiday quarterback based on what happened in san francisco not for Not not down bay so history shows that it can definitely happen and You know. I think that the colts probably you know if if this workout. I'd be surprised if this is where i think. It's well worth the risk. There is a there's is he who what. How much better are you gonna do right. If you're the goldman especially at that price not having to give up for big multiple pace. I mean where the draft. You're probably not. You're not getting a big top quarterback can do you want to trade draft you know. One of these rookies. I don't think that makes sense from where they're at so to me. Feels like a kind of a perfect situation for that doesn't necessarily sure we're going to get the carson wentz twenty seventeen but if we do it's a situation like this that would bring out again so it really really really curious to see this thing kind of works out. How affects the rest of the quarterback market moving forward. Was that what what what do you see. There still seems quarterbacks that kind of playing out throughout the rest of the league as we get closer to a week you yet. I'm glad you brought that up because You know. I think in in some form or fashion The raiders are involved in all of that And and you know you look. I don't they're not going to trade their cards they're not going to trade derek carr unless you know again we've mentioned this so many times unless there is A backup of a plan in place that has to happen simultaneous to trading him in which they actually improve on him. And you know For for i. I get that. Their car is is kind of a polarizing figure in raider nation of the stats. Don't lie. He's a top ten quarterback by every single measure You can cherry pick one or two that might say. He's the eleventh best quarterback in the nfl but At that point you're just cherry picking if you cobble them all together. He's a top ten quarterback Who just oversaw a top Ten offense He's he's durable. He doesn't turn the ball over obviously last year there was a fumble issues But some of that was also offensive. Line issues is not much you can do when you get in you. know you. Hit from behind and swiped from behind on you know when when you have no chance but be that as it may. I don't think that the there that derek carr is going anywhere so take him off of the table But you know. The raiders do have somewhat of a commodity in in marcus mariota. There's reports out of new england That the at the patriots based on where they're drafting and what. Their quarterback situation is They're gonna kick as many tires as possible You know in terms of finding a new quarterback. I mean to me. Marcus mariota actually makes a little bit of sense in new england. I don't know what the what the patriots would would give up to go get them. But but you know his intelligence His style of play Where he would be going and who would be playing for. I think that makes the. There's there's a little bit of a fit right there. I think the biggest thing memorial any is finally healthy right. I mean this is a guy who felt like you never be in tennessee. Just never healthy always banged up playing in a system that wasn't necessarily conducive to skill sets in as we saw in new england with cam newton. Now granted cam. Newton play to the level that we saw him play at twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and so on so forth. You didn't have that kind of season. A what you saw. Systematic was a willingness from josh mcdaniels. Doing the coaching staff to buy into what cam newton does. We're not going to try to have cam. Newton run tom. Brady's offense right reelect him do. What cam newton's good at and kind of thinking these the believe that. If marcus mariota did wind up doing that they would adjust their system their offensive system to fit some of the things. He's good at some read option zone read some. Rpo's things of that nature. Get marcus mariota moving on the perimeter a little bit letting him throw the ball on the run doing some of those things that we saw him do that game against the chargers this past year where where he was very good for most of the game and gave the raiders are really good chance to win despite having a coming off the bench after car. Injured is going. So i think there's a little bit upside there in a given that the situation there rain i think is pretty low risk. I don't think it would be on the pot earlier if there is a train involved. I don't think he would take a crazy. Picks marcus mariota and in it would definitely be an upgraded a number of places. I think the washington football team now. There are reports a couple of weeks ago about them being interested out where things stand with that but he would be an upgrade their tunes of what the avenue. I think there's a couple of spots that where where it would make sense for them to for team to go get him. I think he's still the thing back. Mario have any he's actually younger than carson wentz. He's only twenty seven. He's twenty seven years old below the playoffs. Four has some success. Just hasn't seen to find the right fit so we'll see we'll see where he ends up. I think new england would definitely be an interesting landings platform at green here for sam. Nash injury law the only injury attorneys. I trust. I know if i get an accident.

Yeah they have a lot of money under the salary gap it just a one year deal. Yeah it's ten point seven dollars You know that that's given where most salary caps are going to be After everything all the dust settles in the number drops from last year to to twenty twenty one Even with all that the patriots are in an excellent position from a salary cap stamp way that they could easily absorb attempt seven dollar marcus mariota contract whereas others might not be able to To do that. So keep an eye on the new england. Patriots and marcus. Mariota there are. There is some Sense in all that granted. You know if. You're the new england patriots you take a flyer on jameis winston or ryan. There's another guys there's other players that are that are available. But i don't know You know I think marietta is the mariota that we saw Against the chargers look pretty good to me and look like he was ready to be a factor again in the nfl. I like jameis winston. But i look at all the turnovers and you know. Just i don't know i don't know if that's fit in in new england but anyway we'll we'll see where the quarterback carousel goes It's it's just starting obviously shawn watson. Plays a big part of this Not quite sure. What the houston. Texans plan is On all that. If i'm houston texas. I'm on my knees begging him to stay at what i gotta do to to to make this right again to make this work again because you let a guy like that. Walk out your door. That's one of those ones that you probably gonna regret for years to come. But they may be in a position where they have no choice and that's on them For creating that kind of a situation they had a chance with some pretty darn good players with the houston texans salmon squander that is just almost inexplicable really. See it really is but i think he kind of the home. The kind of dysfunction. They were dealing with You know from office standpoint and ownership standpoint in goshi standpoint where you couldn't figure out you had four years. I mean the was drafted throughout seventy four years to figure out. Okay how do we put our obviously star franchise amazing quarterback in a position to be successful to build a quality team around him. And we know that kind of the formula ready right like rosie rookie quarterback rookie contract. That's when you can be aggressive and go spend money and build a quality team. And i think it wasn't for lack of trying. Houston it's just that they didn't know what they were doing. And i'll be extensions left and right trading away. Their draft picks for players. That don't necessarily worth that kind of compensation i mean. It was just total dumpster. Fire if you white book on how to build a team you would be. It would be authored by the houston texans. Because they just totally squandered the first four years of his career in really trained the andre hawkins as he's entering his prime when he's in his fine Just inexplicable not getting any value proper value back for him so it feels some egypt and this is from afar vintages reading reading what we read in seeing the reports coming out. Houston that that that bridge has been burnt. That shawn watson seems pretty set on ways off getting out of there which which i totally understand but to your point i mean you get franchise quarterback at that level the top three or four quarterback in the nfl owes those kind of players. Those kind of leaders game changing players don't grow on trees and chances are through the texas. You're probably not going to get anybody that good at least anytime remotely in the near future shock hundred. Why they're calling from their position right now plus if they were. You know acknowledged public. We leaked somebody in that organization. The league that okay. We're considering trading shawn watson. I think that the value will go like they lose some of their leverage so it feels like like. I don't think we're i don't recall seeing standoff white like this in quite some time. It feels like us. We're we're we're we're at. The question is using a blink. I i would guess it's going to be used. And i always try to remind people this you know Standoffs in the off season are Are is a completely different world than a standoff in the regular season. that's when money. Nobody's getting paid right now. You don't get for anyone who is unsure how pay works in the nfl You get paid by the game. You know If if you're making twenty million dollars a year divide that by sixteen games so you don't get paid until the regular season starts believe it or not So you know for shawn watson as much money as he makes he makes a lot of money. None of that's being lost or made right now But when september first or september third or whenever the first regular season game is rolls around That's when you know you know. However much he makes per game starts not going his bank account and that starts changing stances pretty quickly. I don't know if it's gonna get to that point But if it does then there's probably a lot of damage that's going to be done On both sides you know so we'll see As it relates to the raiders. Obviously all so much of their focus is going to be On defense There's been some interesting You know Players that that have already hit the market we talked about. Jj watt cohen chartres for the carolina panthers boston the carolina after a still pretty good Safety looks like the panthers are loading up or loden. Now know you wanna put it In order to make a run at somebody. I don't know what it could be the quarterback. We spent about five minutes soccer. You know so what which would leave our guy teddy bridgewater in another. You know a on the outside looking at man i just. I feel so bad for teddy. Because i think he's one of the most quality human beings in this in this league. Everyone loves the guy and he can play But you know He keeps going into situations where you know A in minnesota he gets he gets hurt. Being new orleans plan behind drew brees and then he goes to carolina for a year does pretty well But oh what the chance that we can get to shawn watson. hey sorry teddy. We may have to move on from you to go. Get a better quarterback so anyway. We'll see what what's happening there. But you know some of those defensive players that i just mentioned Our guys that you know. I'm sure the writers. I know that the raiders are shouldn't say i think but i know that they're they're kicking their tires on and one thing to keep in mind. Sam is that you know as as he's players start hitting the open market and i know redder fans like trae. Boston should go get trade. you know. There's a definite need free safety while you know. Obviously you're thinking along the lines that the raiders are thinking. But i'm not so sure. Being hasty is the way to go here from what i've been told every indication that i've gotten sam because of the way the salary cap is going to go down this year. There's going to be a whole bunch of Quality players a hit the open market sim not because they can't play but because a salary cap implications put them in a vulnerable position with their current teams as their current teams. Try to create some space or even just get under the salary cap so i think the approach will be study up on. Everybody kicked the tires on everybody. But don't act in haste because what might be available today. could actually improve By a lot next week or tomorrow you know so so. I think that they're going to wait for to all kinds Come out before they start really making some moves. Yeah i mean. What's the rush right. I mean there's no there's no her either whole offseason. There is the drafters number of components before number of steps that need to happen before we get into training camps. And things like that. So i think it would make sense for the raiders. Trying to take their top serving the landscape. See who fits best kind of see. What the market dictates at who's gonna make in and and how that all shakes because like you seventy unprecedented year with the way the salary cap is going to move. Obviously we're used to going up up up up up cut coronavirus pandemic kesselman say about that. So it's gonna change kind of the tenor of allow these contracts and a lot of these deals and why wide russian and spend all that cap space right away. I don't think there's any reason to do that. See we see where things who's aware of who's getting what what kind of money is being made. What kind of money's being handed out what guys are getting and then evaluated accordingly. I in reassessed according to me. That doesn't mean don't don't go after somebody or two when the bell you know what the sound of the bell but but there's a lot of things that i think he'd be app that needs to happen a lot of players. I think that we're still going to see that are going to be released or cut or teams are gonna partways with my sensing. Hasn't even the current free agents. There's going to be several more. We don't even know who all is going to be available in. Maybe some surprises that the raiders could be interesting. Yeah absolutely and you know they will make moves this offseason. There's no doubt about it. And that includes some of their own free agents And you get the question. Well you know if they're gonna move on jimmy brown or if they're going to move on from You know Lamarcus joyner if they're gonna move on from you know Richie incognito or marcus mariota. Why haven't they you know already done. I think again. And that's there's no rush necessarily because Number one a. We don't know if they've told some of these players. Hey you know You better start preparing to look for another job because we're probably going to move on so that those conversations to some extent have already happened in some of these players cases We already know that. Terrell williams is going to be a is going to be a A free agent You know so. And they're also holding onto the player just in case there is a trade market out there. you know you don't want to be hasty in cutting somebody only to find out that you know Some team would have traded seventh round. pick six round. Pick whatever the as my be so you just be patient right now but but i think once the dam bursts as we get closer to a march seventeenth I think the dam is gonna burst in in a in a big way and i think that You know you're gonna start seeing some of these names whether it's on the raiders or other teams really start hitting the open market. And i think that's gonna get that's when it's obviously going to get really interesting in san we haven't even talked about. There's pending free agents like like free agents that we could already visualize look at In terms of who's going to be on the open market Know short of anyone that signs a franchise tag or with their current team. But there's a lot of good players That are that as we sit. Today are pending free agents just waiting for the new league year to start In addition to what we talked about there's going to be a whole bunch of other players Out on the market simply because circumstance due to covid nineteen so this is probably not a great seller's market I think that if you're a team that that you know if you're a team with a lot of salary cap you could get a turn around pretty quickly You know in a and from everything that i understand. Sam i think agents are more prone in this free agency cycle to sign. Shorter-term deals sure. Yeah to get their clients back on the open market sooner rather than later in order to take advantage of what at some point that salary caps going to go back up so there's better days ahead and maybe if you're you know Twenty seven twenty eight years old twenty six years old. You want to sign a to your gut deal and then get back out in the open market quicker. Bet on yourself right. We do that all the time across different sports event on resolving this based on the way the kind of market shaping up to be what wait may somewhere salary cap constraints that that makes a ton of sense in that. Would you know there. I say. I mean i don't wanna look Twenty twenty two but would make for a free agency there the next year as well so Just this mean this is kind of what what it is would be. This is the effect of the coronavirus. Pandemic out in the nfl we did. We did necessarily see it. I mean obviously. It played itself out during the season with guys mr james with the things that happened a baltimore tennessee in those teams were there were class sitting out but this is where the big ramifications really gonna happen was in the off season it. Now it's it's we're going to see you. This smart off front offices. The smart coaching staffs the smart executives are really going to have a chance to the show showcase where they gotta earn your stripes. And we're going to see some separation there we're going to see. The smart teams are going to have to separate themselves from the smart nassau's even more so even more than they already happened. I can't. I really can't wait for us to august. Started because just of the craziness that last thing before we get out You know word of caution to to Any of these agents or players wanted to the shorter term deals. I'm not sure if we got into this last week as well. But here's the deal on the salary. Cap you know i've been told by people in the nfl that if if the twenty twenty one salary cap was first of all just to explain the salary cap works this way. Every year at the end of each season the nfl counts up all the money all the revenue that they created a from the previous season so so once they do that and they they come up with. This is how much revenue was generated. From this past season they take off forty eight percent of that and slide it over to the players that forty eight percent represents the players cut a revenue. that's negotiated a figure between the players association and the nfl that forty eight percent that then goes to the players. You divide that by thirty two. And that's how each team's salary cap is based is created So it's it's it's just it's thirty two teams a cut or our salary cap based on forty eight percent of whatever revenue was generated the year before. Okay so we know that What i've been told by people in the. Nfl is if this salary cap was just strictly based on how much revenue was generated in two thousand twenty because of the dramatic hit that was taken due to covid nineteen no fans in the stands etc etc. You to that hit the salary cap. Should be either one hundred sixty million dollars or maybe even below if it was if it was all reflected by every dollar that was generated in two thousand twenty all right so going from one hundred ninety eight to one hundred and sixty. That's a huge falloff for a wet players are doing what the agents are doing is saying. Look we don't wanna take that big of a hit in one fell swoop in one season. So what the players are doing is borrowing against future salary caps in order to soften the blow this year. So when you see one hundred eighty million dollars as the floor which was announced last week when you see that figure understand that that means that the players are you know. are borrowing about twenty million dollars per team per thousand so so You know multiply twenty million dollars by thirty two teens at six hundred and some million dollars That's that's that's six hundred whatever million dollars. They're borrowing from future salary caps. That has to get paid back. It's not a loan. it's i mean it is alone but it's not a you know here have that money you know we're we're never going to worry about it so To to to further explain. Let's say we to next year And and by by by all rightful reasons by all revenue that's generated from the twenty twenty one season. The salary cap goes up by twenty million dollars. Let's say next year will the. Nfl is gonna say. Yeah but you have to start paying back what we just gave you. So that's the probably gonna drop if they if they pay haves and it'll drop by ten million dollars when it should have been twenty million dollars and so on and so forth until all of that money gets paid back so if you're thinking about a shorter term deal you got to also understand that this thing isn't gonna get back to where it normally should be for a little while because years. Yup exactly so just a little bit of a reminder for fans on how it works and what the players are doing right now. I get what the players are doing is a lot of these guys are like. I don't really care. Because i'm gonna be out of league by the time. This thing needs to start getting paid paid back up. So there's like a sandler's like eighth graders and ninth graders right now that are going to be affected by the issues that are being made today like literally. That's that's that's how that works. You know guys that are there in the eighth or ninth grade right now. They're gonna eventually be in the. Nfl are going to be feeling this pain When they when they finally get to the nfl. But that's a problem for another day and as some of these current player to saying sobe better than the me. so that's how it all works but anyway we're Obviously it's going to be. I think we're we're looking at a pretty busy week at the continue to see more and more players hitting the open market And you know the raiders are gonna sort through all of those names trying to figure out who fits who doesn't whether the weight whether the pounds But whatever happens we're going to be there covering it You can follow us At vegas nation on the app or go to vegas nation dot com To follow all of our stuff and to see all the great work that we're doing over las vegas journal sam you so much for your time.

"This message comes from NPR sponsor Capital One offering variety of credit card options with features for a range of customers from foodies to travelers Capital One what's in your wallet credit approval required capital. One Bank USA in a from NPR and WB. You are. I'm Robin young. I'm Jeremy Hobson it's here now. And I am in London where Prime Minister Theresa may is about to start a news conference at ten Downing Street, Robin, the cameras are trained on her podium there. She has just tweeted out that she has made decisive progress delivering Brexit with her new plan which was unveiled this week. And this after another day of drama that sought to senior members of her cabinet quit, including her breaks at secretary and a member of her own conservative party. Jacob rees-mogg is calling for a leadership change. He was asked today if he is plotting a coup. I think a coup is Len you use illegitimate procedures to try navy ton somebody who is in office. This is working through. The procedures of the conservative party is entirely constitutional. And now, I save Newsnight coup is the wrong word. So a lot going on today, Robin, and we will follow this story throughout the show. Jammie? Meanwhile, in California to huge fires continue to burn a week after they started the Wolsey fire in the south is more than halfway contained but private boats are ferrying in supplies to some of the coastal areas affected and in Thousand Oaks funerals are still delayed for some of the victims of the country bar shooting a week ago as more news displaced outside the town in the north the campfire, the most destructive in-state history is still burning colleges in Sacramento and San Francisco miles away a closed because of air quality cadaver dogs are searching for a Maine's in Butte county in the north where at least fifty six people have died teams of national guardsmen are going house to destroyed house after every search they huddle with a chaplain. Authorities have released the names of about one hundred people who are missing but say they're only releasing names in batches so detectives aren't overwhelmed by calls from relatives. And they will be more names this morning. The Butte county sheriff's office said the number of missing has risen to above. Three hundred the town of paradise as we know is devastated by the fire. Thousands of people homes and businesses survivors are scattered since shelters are full many of setup a tent city in the WalMart in neighboring Chico. Well today, we want to zoom in on the story of one man from paradise who was able to escape and now has to try to bring his flock back together. Sam Walker joins us. Now, he's pastor of both the First Baptist Church and the congregation Herrera Shula in paradise pastor Sam you say you didn't get any official call to evacuate paradise. When the fire broke out you heard an evacuation order on a police scanner online. Just take us back Thursday morning, seven AM. What was it like getting out? Well, I had to go. Get my mom and dad who hasn't been able to get out of bed for the last two years. We had the load him in a truck. And while we were doing that it had gotten so dark that all of the lights were clicking on the whites normally tomorrow at night, and you could hear. In the distance propane tanks just exploding implement distance. Well, and now you're in this flow of traffic. We've been hearing about this. You know, it's a a former old gold mining camp. There's I think three roads on the ridge where you lived you. You you're noticing people trying to flee driving on one side of the road. And you said wait a second. This has got to change. Well, I put my emergency blinkers on unite went down the other side of the road. And so I'm going like sixty miles an hour down down the road. Whether it's bumper to bumper traffic on the right side of the road. And I looked behind me, and there was a whole line of car following down the wrong side. And I hope I doing that. We took some of the traffic so people can move forward. It's harrowing these stories are harrowing. But now, you know, the number of deaths, and do you have you lost anyone? Yes. We know for sure we've lost at least three people some the messianic Jewish congregation. I lost a very close friend, though, they haven't released his name, but we do know that he's gone, and he was like a dad to me, and that's really hard because I felt like if I had just gone down to street in one Kim somehow. And so that's something that I know is going to be hard for me the rest of my life. Well, you know, just want to ask you more about, you know, this friend because we understand it was a very popular retirement places quirky filled with character former goldmining town, and there were a lot of people there, you know, and. I don't think you're going to be the only one wishing you'd gone by an older person's house. I mean, are you anticipating that I think it's going to be a lot of elderly who didn't make it out. I know there's going to be many people that are going to sell that way. I know there is a United. It's a type of situation that you can't describe I mean. I don't know very few people have have lived through stuff like this, and you have survivor's guilt to you. You know, you're like, why am I here? Why is my family? All here. Why our church is still standing I don't I don't know. You know, my house was gone like so many others. Yeah. What else to say about that thing to say, although you're going to have to because that's your job. You know, you're the past. Yep. And you know, now, people are scattered everywhere. And I'm sure that the community is gonna wanna come together when when when burial start are you thinking, how do we not just you? But the whole religious community, and how do we, you know, are you thinking about that? Or maybe not yet. Oh, yeah. Actually, I was the ministerial the president of the ministerial ridge of the pastors up on the ridge. I just got elected. So you know, we we have hoped and as a pastor. I absolutely believe that there is something beyond this life and. I am going to be ready to talk to people in just encourage them and say you're gonna see your less one again. That's Walker pastor and pastor in an resident of although displaced from paradise California. Well, Sam pastor Walker. We wish you and your flocks the best. Thank you so much of it's been almost a year since the Republican tax Bill passed in many accountants are still trying to figure out how to advise their clients even with six weeks or so until the end of the year, they say there's still time for most taxpayers to make any needed changes. Colorado public radio's Ben Marcus has the story from Denver for accountant tra- show. Connor the timing of the tax Bill was awful. It was days before the end of the year. So a few weeks later clients were wondering how the changes would affect them. They don't pass legislation and download it into me. Like, I'm a cyborg. I have to learn it has been a CPA for decades in Denver. And she says one thing that struck her about the new tax law is how radically different every individual's situation is there are a few common denominators for particular groups of work. Cours businesses the new laws complex and O'Connor says many of her older CPA friends have decided to quit they decided that it wasn't worth it. To learn the new tax code for somewhere between three and five years worth of practicing. That's part of the reason it's getting harder to find CPA's to prepare taxes outside of the big chains. Like, h and R Block the tax cuts and jobs act is the most significant rewrite of the tax code since the nineteen eighties. It broadly lowered taxes on corporations and individuals. But the Bill was fast tracked through congress. So the IRS has had the hard work of interpreting and filling in the details for CPA's that makes it vising clients challenge. We are what ten months in. Now. We're still learning about the section one ninety nine a and how to put it into practice. She's referring to the qualify business income deduction, which is essentially a twenty percent tax cut for some the devil. Of course is in the details. It favors certain professor. Over others. Sorry, lawyers and accountants Ray, engineers and architects, but it's still not totally clear. What counts is qualified income. What if you have multiple businesses the need for guidance is immense? That's Ed Carl with the American Institute of CPA's. He says when he worked for pairing taxes it took years to figure out all the details of the nineteen eighties. Tax bill. Carl agrees that many older CPA's are calling it quits rather the Marna brand new tax code. But he says that opens doors for others because it's a new in. There aren't noted experts yet. So they're huge opportunities. People probably think, I'm crazy. But I think it's really fun Mary Gallagher's at Denver accountant who was able to take on new clients because an older CPA. She knows retired after the new law passed as she poured over the details of the new coach she noticed something. This could be bad for charities. The standard deduction is higher which means many individuals will no longer benefit from item. Deductions and therefore won't get a tax benefit for donating to charity hate to see the charity suffer, but I don't know how many people make charitable contributions because they're going to get a deduction, and how many people just do it because they believe in the charity. So hopefully, the charities won't be hurt as much so charities may get more money one year, and none the next depending on changes to the individuals income, and whether they itemize there's one other issue keeping accountants up at night, many tax payers could end up owing the IRS more money in April than they realize. We have six months before your tax bills. Do you get six months to be made aware of the fact, you might have a tax Bill coming again, Trish, O'Connor, she says because of changes to withholding tables, many people are seeing their tax cut in a small increase to each paycheck. That means they may end up owing or not getting as big a refund as usual, you're expecting a refund because in your mind, this tax legislation has been sold that it's tax savings. What you didn't connect with was. Was you've been getting it all year long. You didn't pay attention to the fact that your net check was just hire. And now, we're gonna hand you a tax Bill and everyone's going to be surprised she's done the math and many of her clients will probably end up owing more than they realized for some big clients. That's tens of thousands of dollars more either way O'Connell says there's still time to prepare yourself. Even if the CPA's may not have all the answers right now for here. Now, I've been Marcus in Denver. This is here. Now, I'm Jeremy Hobson, and I am coming to you from a cafe on the streets of Paris right now, we're looking at Brexit all week. And we wanted to come across the English channel to France to see how Britain's exit from the European Union looks from here. This is a country that could have a lot to gain from a Brexit. It could also have a lot to lose. As the birds devour some bread crumbs next to a beautiful fountain. Just off the Senate river. We find Winston teary to ask what he thinks of brazen. It's nothing. Good thing. Not a good thing. No, not the toll specialty falls English people, but choice business to say. But we regret I think you say. This choice, and I'm sure that the mic addictions today. Maybe will it be okay. For the books it. What about for France? Do you think it's bad for France full fronts? Nuts specially. But it's about for Europe on I think, you rope is a good thing which could go ahead, and it's very sore is that great country like England thinks that he can do a lot of things alone out of Huron because we all very smooth. And when you think to the state so to show to China, it's not just the Dow just FRANZ who can do something by himself. Do you think that Europe should hold a tough line with the UK and make sure that it doesn't look easy to exit from the European Union? No, I don't think so it should. So it's that the English people have always wanted to do things in zone interested, but certainly a normal but want to share they want to go they go out, but it must be doing in the right to what is your biggest fear about Brexit? When it happens if it happens in March. I will tell you something. My father is a richest on the as the British do sale consume retirement engine, pension, and in fact. Is a pension is getting lower and lower because of the bricks it what not far away we find Doan. Jello outbreak seat. I understand. Vit- return? But a Europe is Europe under it's better to. Let's see no to stay in Europe to stay. No. Thank you. Are you worried about the implications of Brexit for France? Larry what she's wearing invites Malibu beyond for costs for friends. Not bad. I think the because for French dependable. We're in a Great Britain, April do for me. No difference tone difference for me. For europe. What's always was stake since the Brexit referendum in two thousand sixteen was will the European Union without the United Kingdom a managed to stick together and be pursue. It's process of slow gradual. But in some ways, relentless process of integration. This is Francois Heisbourg of the foundation for strategic research in Paris who thinks about things like Brexit for a living the chances of the European Union sticking together, and deepening its integration are higher today than I think most people would have cared to forecast at the time of the referendum result in two thousand sixteen and why do you think that is why because within a matter of days after the result of the referendum the twenty seven members of the EU, my well, minus. The United Kingdom, of course, where in basic agreement on their stance or posture towards the eventual Brexit negotiation, although the British government may have hoped or expected that the European Union could be cherry picked that this country of that country at yet another country would do it sort of side transactions with the United Kingdom that has not happened. What kind of relationship, do you think that France is going to have with the UK after Brexit? How important of a country will the u k b to you. If there's a deal things will get back on an even keel because much of the strategic and security and political activity between the UK and France is bilateral in nature. So they'll stand even this. So if there is a Brexit agreement and. A United Kingdom which will presumably be able to function as a reasonably competitive economy. I won't be as competitive as before the fact of no longer being a full member of the single market of the EU customs union will competitive disadvantage to the UK, but still it shouldn't be massive and therefore Britain will be pretty much the same sort of partner outside as when Britain was inside. If there is no agreement the British economy would presumably sink like a stone. The Brits what spending the next twenty years trying to sort themselves out? It would not be a great situation in which to do stuff together. It sounds like what you're saying is this is probably going to be bad for the UK. But that Europe will be alright without them. We would be better off with them. Mm-hmm. But we'll do essentially okay without them. If there's a deal if there is a deal, and if there's not a deal if there's Mel to deal, then it's bad for everybody. And it's cut a straw fic- for the British one of the areas where Brexit could be most catastrophic for the British is finance Marianne. Barbara Leonie is CEO of the French banking federation. It's something that the French of financial institutions did not desire. We will not in favor of Brexit because we have a very long term and very important relationship with the UK and UK friends in in the financial sector that being said we were not the ones to vote. And so now the main we have two main points first of all to prevent preserve the internal market, which is the fact that if you are financial institution located in Perez or in Frankfurt or in the bean or wherever in the UN currently in. In the UK as well. You can be active all over the internal market with the principle of freedom of activity everywhere with just one entry point in inau market. The counterpart of that is that obviously you are all applying the same regulations under the control of the same jurisdiction. And that is what we call the integrity of the financial market. We need to make sure that since we are all acting on the same basis all over this market. Everybody has the same rule and under same jurisdiction controlling them. But not including the UK after Brexit after Brexit. It will depend on the type of agreement that will be I hope concluded between the UK and the EU. There is no agreement of your Slee British financial institutions with lose. What we call the passport if they lose. Passport, of course, that will be a third party country with which doesn't mean that they will not be able to conduct business, but on a different basis like US institutions, for example, if they are acting from the US can obviously do business in Europe, but on the different basis, she is watching closely whether British Prime Minister Theresa may can get a deal for a clean exit through parliament, no deal. She says would be worse for everyone, but deal or no deal that will be a hub somewhere for all foreign institutions currently using London as the hub. And we hope it will be Perez and Perez will win this little competition. So you could benefit from from all of this in Paris in a way. I mean, the first point is done. It's not good news. The second point is how to deal with this bad news and make the most of it. And from that point of view Europe needs to reorganize itself and have new financial. Hubs and Peres is clearly the one at at least in the banking business, but also in asset management and insurance. It certainly has all the advantages possible to be this new hub. Back on the streets of Paris. We found a man who called himself simply el-avia and went even further than Marianne, Barbara EMMY in describing Brexit what I think it's it's it's a good thing. Because. Mandela's is is not a good solution globalism globally in. Yes, we have to respect. Nationalities. Because it's something natural. We we own needs voters that doesn't mean that's the old friends with the others. But if everybody is the same there has not I and the other do you think France should also exit the EU? No, you you're up this change. But France next stay in inside of Europe. Ladies and gentlemen, did he touching as it? Currently takes less time to take a train between Paris and London through the channel tunnel than to take one from Washington to New York connection that was created when Britain was trying to get closer to one of its nearest neighbours at the moment.

And let's check in in Florida because it's a critical day in the Florida recount to determine the next governor. And Senator a headline in the Tampa Bay times says it all we'll know today. Maybe that's definitive see there's a three PM eastern deadline for all counties to report their machine recount totals. But Palm Beach is struggling to meet that and this morning. A judge said several thousand voters whose mail in ballots weren't counted. Because of mismatch signatures could have until Saturday to fix them by turning an affidavit, let's get the latest from NPR national political correspondent, Don gonyea who joins us outside the Broward County elections office. I Don Kay. How are you? I'm good. So what do you think is this counting going to get done by the three pm deadline? I I I don't make predictions about Florida recount smart, man. But but but look I so I'm in Broward County a big county. They do expect to make it. I was just you know, in the room where they're kind of going over ballots, and and checking things out we can watch through a bunch of windows, and it seems pretty calm in there. And they do seem to be on track. Got we'll see. But, but as you said Palm Beach county is the big question, Mark the election. Supervisor there has said she will not make the three pm deadline. A federal judge does have the power to give that county and extension, but we don't have that extension. Officially yet. There is a hearing in federal court this afternoon where the election supervisor will be asked why how much more time what's taking so long all those sorts of things, and we'll know more the key to today's deadline. Is that can then trigger the manual recount with a deadline for that's this weekend. Oh boy. Well, and we're hearing that the machine recount is thought it to settle the governor's race in favor of the Republican Ron to Santa's over the democrat, Andrew gillum. Whether or not Palm Beach county has finished is that not true. Again, I don't want to say definitively, but the margin there has been large enough, right? What triggered the machine recount was a half of one percent difference less than that separating separating the candidates, but for you for you'd be eligible to trigger the automatic hand. Recount you have to be within a quarter of one percentage point the Senate race looks like it would probably be within that narrow narrow margin. But the governor's race is is well outside of that at this point. Okay. And just a on that Senate race governor, Rick Scott, the Republican does lead over the Democratic Party and come at Bill Nelson. And you're saying what we might get some resolution in that. Well, that one that one is more than likely to go to the hand recount would be within the, you know, one quarter of one percent as it has been all along. And at that point. They would do the hand recount not of all eight million plus ballots cast, but of those that are irregular in some way that having over vote, meaning you can't tell who they voted for or an under vote, meaning they left some some things blank and try to have to determine if that was that was what the intent was because the machine didn't read it properly, but it's all of those kinds of ballots. That would be counted manually in the hand recount and does look like the Senate race would go there. Okay. Don, gonyea, NPR, national political. Correspondent in Florida as the counting continues, Don. Thanks so much. All right. We'll be here. Thank you. I'm doing the show from London today. Which means I've spent a lot of time underground station, the London bridge chain for the Northern Line and national rail betters London is famous for its tube. It's the oldest underground rail network in the world, but it's also very crowded for than five million people used the tube every day and at peak hours up to five hundred and forty three trains are zipping below one of the world's busiest cities. That's why Londoners were unhappy to learn earlier this year that the cross rail project had been delayed cross rail is one of Europe's biggest infrastructure projects a fifteen billion dollar moonshot that will cut down travel times across the city and bring relief to commuters. The project is held in such high esteem here that two years ago. Cross rail was renamed the Elizabeth line in honor of the Queen. Claire Perry was a minister for the department of transport. She made the announcement before the house of Commons in two thousand sixteen she has long. Been associated with many aspects of this nation's transport. I'll clean opened the Victoria line service in nineteen sixty nine the fleet line was renamed the jubilee line in on a hearse twenty five years on the throne in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine and she is the first reigning monarch Mr Speaker to travel on the London underground the Queen will have to wait another year to ride the Elizabeth line. It's now expected to open in the fall of twenty nine thousand nine which means Howard Smith is a man under pressure when I met the director of operations at crossroads high rise offices in London's Canary Wharf neighborhood. I asked him what the vision for the project was so the Elizabeth lines about physically building some new tunnels. So about fourteen fifty miles of new tunnels across the center of London right through the heart of London. But those tunnels actually connect the existing lines that run to the main line Termini in London. So. For hundreds of years one over one hundred years people in London. In fact, you most you'll repent cities have been used to coming to the edge of town in a big train above the surface. And then doing something that's very old when you think about it, which is to go on an escalator down and getting a small trying to finish off the journey across the central London. And that's because over one hundred years ago, you couldn't easily build tunnels because he was steam trains fit very well with tunnels. And also there was law that stopped railway. He's coming into the very center of London, and it will go from where to where the Elizabeth line in total will connect Heathrow, apple the West End. They area just used for the Olympics at Stratford so all of London's major areas or connect you for one more. And so give us an example Americans. If they've come to London before they've probably flown into Heathrow airport, and they know that right now if you were to get on the tube and come into London, it could take you almost an hour to get into the center of the city, forty five minutes. To an hour or something like that. You can also take this fast Heathrow express train that will get you to Paddington station in about twenty minutes from either. But then you've gotta get to your next nation. If you are taking cross rail the Elizabeth line how long's it gonna take you to get from Heathrow airport to the center of London just over half an ally. So to get from Heathrow to somewhere like, let's get delay circus even Lisa because just just the half an hour. So you come into them Cole road that would be less than half an hour wouldn't change from that if you were coming to Canary Wharf right over the other side of town at the moment that would take you nearly now that will take you about forty minutes, and how did you build these tunnels without disrupting the city if you tried to do this in a US city people would be complaining that they were being traffic. Nightmares? All over the place to build the tunnels with the tunnels being dug across London a fairly deep than not cutting cover tunnels way, you go down from the surface. They're actually use tunnel boring. Sheen's eight huge 100-meter-long factories underground tunneling under London. So there are about thirty forty meters below the ground the reason they're able to get through and have a good alignment is. Because actually the route has been protected on the planning regulations for decades. So the route was planned and then the tunnel boring machines settle from the edge of town and essentially worked towards each other. How long did it take to do that? It took about four years to do the tunneling those tunnelling machines, wait a thousand tons each and had very dignified names like Victoria, Phyllis so FIA when they were finally done chewing up the clay below London in two thousand fifteen prime Minister, David Cameron went underground to Mark the occasion, this feat boring. Twenty six miles underneath the streets of London it ranks alongside the channel tunnel ranks alongside the great western railway line. It's an. Engineering triumphant everyone who's been involved should be huge deprived. I asked Howard Smith. How many things the machines ran into along the way in terms of tunneling incredibly very very little in the way, and that's down to the planning. That's been done over the years. So if you're building a big building, you'll not allow to do is on the route if you'll putting something in the ground you have to take it back out. So they were couple of incidents where tunnel boring machines actually came into contact with things being placed in the ground decades. Go and well known about. Little parts of the route had sand or water. But tunneling these days the engineers are incredibly clever, and actually you can get round most of that. But how for all those many decades were those routes able to be preserved and somebody didn't come along and say, oh, they're never going to build this thing. We can we can put this building right on top of this route. It'll be really great for us up here about grad crush Raoul's been under planning depending on how quite how you wanna call for over a century. The regents canal company actually had plans for an east west railway across London back in the nineteen th century, something we Abbott crumby report at the end of the second World War lay at laid out London's future transport links and included something that we'd recognize his cross rile today. So actually the history of these things even things on the channel tunnel. All the good ideas. Don't go away. What has been the biggest challenge of cross rail many challenges? Cross Ryo and I've been on the project for about fifteen years. Probably the first one is actually to get fifteen billion pounds together jointly funded by the city in by government, huge challenge and then the real difficult bit. But I'm slightly biased as the operator at the end of it is actually bringing all the pieces together. So something as complicated that connects up existing roadways brand new as new systems old systems. That's the real challenge at the end of the job. Now, we're here in November of twenty eight teen this was supposed to open next month. Right. So why the delay? Why is it not until next year? The holidays of the job is to bring all of it together. So old a new systems the train the signaling this three different sorts of signaling. So you have to bring those together and test them, a nobody wants to open something that isn't reliable. You would never open. Something that wasn't safe. So we continuing to test. Go trains running up and down in already there in the tunnel. I went through actually in June from end to end in June. The Shia but continuing to test individual trains than groups of trains them, bring the staffing and then test passages. How do you test passengers higher actor again we bring in? A lot of African relations suspect when the time comes friends and family exactly like I as was done many years ago, for instance, on channel tunnel, and you bring the main, and if you won't practice getting them on and off trains, even a small number of them, actually, taking them off trains and tunnels. That's how you do it. Now, you might hear this and think why doesn't my city do something like cross rail. The US has never invested in passenger trains the way other developed countries have phase one of the second avenue subway in Manhattan took about one hundred years to pull off it costs four point five billion dollars to build two miles of track and three stations. So what's the difference? Loins like this really big high capacity, expensive lines only make sense in really big cities. So that narrows down the field of begs, right and the other challenge which does apply in Europe know, quite as much as it does North America is actually bringing the various funding streams together North America. You end up having to assemble huge number of different funding. Streams often tight long time to to bring together because I dependent on different politicians, and you don't have to do that. We had to do that for cross Ryo, but we had to do that simply between the London mayor and the government. The Elizabeth line will end up taking a little more than a decade to build when it opens next fall by all accounts. It will be a huge upgrade to an already impressive transportation system. But will it be good enough for Londoners Londoners? Nice speakers. A lifelong London would always find something. London's transport. I would say in the thirty odd years that I've worked on public transport in London people's expectations of risen. But actually, I think people's understanding of the complexities as risen to. So that always be things that people don't like. But I think a love the Elizabeth line. When opens we'll see if you can't wait to write it for yourself. You can find pictures of the Elizabeth line at here. Now. And it's hard to believe, but we are already heading into week eleven of the NFL season with a highly anticipated matchup Monday night between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are nine and one. So we may be seeing a preview of the Super Bowl who knows here. No sports analyst, Mike Pesca, also hosted the daily podcast, the gist is here. Mike. Hello. And I there's a back story here. The Rams are from LA and some players had to evacuate their homes because of the fires. Yes, players coaches in fact in their game against Seattle. I seventy coaches players staff had some sort of fact, including vacuum Shen so this week, and there's a backstory that will get to about the scheduling of this game this week. The Rams have been training in Colorado training at altitude because the game we're talking about this Monday night game was supposed to be played it out to to Mexico City. But it's been rescheduled. And so there is I think depending on how you look at it either a lot of upheaval or it's also been reported that a little bit of a respite from these troubles because they're at pretty nice resort. And they're staying with their family. And so maybe to some extent takes their minds off what's going on back. Home players have said they recognize how lucky they are. Because they have the Rams organization to help them and their families out others. You know, don't have that. But you mention Mexico City the Rams and the chiefs were supposed to play in Mexico City, but they switch back to LA because of the port field conditions at the Mexico stadium. Apparently, a combination of rain soccer secure concert. Going there in the first place. Well, first of all, it has been widely reported that it's secure, but you know, her concert was in October. There was in concert last week. So hips don't lie. But I think the New York Post may of when they blamed Shapira on this one. I it's part of the NFL's outreach international outreach to play games overseas. And they've played over twenty games in London and they've played games in Mexico. Mexico City's metropolitan area twenty two million people potential fan base. And I think the NFL looks at the NBA and the NFL is a bigger enterprise in every way, except international outreach and football American football, as it's called is a really American sport, much more. So than the other big team sports, and the NFL says if we're going to grow this sport, it will probably be internationally considering that levels of play domestically are actually going down. What with caution concerns totally a smart move to play there. And I think it was a wise move to pull up stakes because the field is just terrible and potentially dangerous. But going back to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum won't there be still smoke issues. Yeah. And at the at the game in San Francisco last week, there was also a smoke issues, but it won't be so oppressive as to be anything other than maybe a small nuisance from what I'm told the teams let's get to that chiefs averaging thirty five points a game Rams about thirty four which players. Should we be watching if this if you're just tuning in the chiefs have a great player at every skill position? And they're young quarterback Patrick Mahomes who was on its way to being maybe a baseball superstars father was a major league player and he throws like shortstop from different angles. He so creative and fantastic. And they have such a speedy receiving core and running back corps that it's so hard to contain them. Like you said over thirty points. In fact, we should note that the over under in this game, which is the which is the total points that both teams will score. According to Las Vegas is the highest that anyone can find. So this should be seventy. Yeah. It should be. It's it's going into it. It's predicted to be highest corn game ever it won't be. But you know, just that alone. There's another stat about offenses that both of these teams are averaging over six point nine yards per play. And you know, it only takes ten to get a first down. So that highest. Yes, there's never been a team that's done that. Now, we have two teams averaging six point nine yards per play. Okay. So good game. You want to venture guess, I. So if you look at all deferred, a loss Angeles, the Rams were favorite when it was to be played in Mexico. Now that it's a home game is technically a home game. But it's an actually home game in their home. Let's Vegas is saying they're more than a field goal favorite. But I don't know because I wonder about all the back and forth. All the chiefs did was stay in Kansas City train, and they were gonna fly. So instead of flying the Mexico, they're flying to Los Angeles. But the Rams have been to Colorado, they were going to go to Mexico. Now, they go back to Los Angeles. I think we're teen is really important, especially when you're playing a great great team. Like each of these are still because of that I might pick the underdog and this one I might pick the chiefs they'll say that I don't know what the stakes are necessarily because I think both of these teams are all but certain to make the playoffs and like you preview they could meet in the Super Bowl. I just want to add in the few seconds. We have the Rams have already given out thousands of free tickets to first responders survivors of the. Fire survivors of the shooting a week ago in Thousand Oaks where some of those players live. They could have the emotional edge. Mike Pesca here. No sports. Analysts also supplied cast the gist. Mike. You're welcome. And here now is a production of NPR WBZ association with the BBC World Service. I'm robin. I'm Jeremy Hobson here in London. We want to say, thanks to our partners at the BBC. We had special help from Alex Griffiths, rich Preston and on the control board, Wayne Moses are Brexit broadcasts were produced by Alex Ashok, Peter O'Dowd and mixed by James trout, Robin. Prince William was here at the BBC earlier today, we tried to get him. But with Kate. He wouldn't come on the show. I'll check ups we are about to Brexit. Now back to the US as we keep watching this.

"A football Friday, Thursday last night, my goodness foot, my Thursday, basketball Friday, Magic Johnson coming up. Seven thirty nine thirty chance to sit with magic yesterday key. Yeah, he almost hire me. Yeah. Yes, you do. What oversee Luke Walton like a foreman. Make sure you don't screw it up. That's what he wanted to tell me. I said. Button, somebody didn't screw. It was Baker Mayfield. Good. Well, you may have a serious question kisha. How far did tyrod Taylor set us back? Talk to him and you wanna know what to do in Houston. Was that superintendent? Texas is very excitable. He was already around withdrawals. Yeah, he probably likes Baker duty. Did tyrod Taylor nice knowing ya. You know, he's never going to get back on the field short of injury. Not if you ask you. We'll here for a minute. It's time for publicity. You know, it was look. I wasn't here with you when we were going through the draft. I wasn't part of the show. At that point we were, we were analyzing. We were trying to figure out not only the show, but we are also trying to figure out what this show would look like in the future. Yeah, and we had you pinned down as a quiet pick. I would. I was late round sleeper. Yeah. We didn't want anybody to know. What a gym you could be here. Right, right. So let me ask, was there anybody on this show prior to my arrival that was all over Baker Mayfield. I would probably say Rosh was hyped by Roz more where hidden by where hairband like that boy complain. I told you, I tried to tell you think maybe Elsie I don't remember because Elsie would have lie all line. No, I didn't like him. I mean, I I knew actually I've met him we he worked out at my training facility out and. Okay, so I, I understand. I got it. I actually set in it, talked to him for several hours to prep him for the draft. This is not fake news not made up. This is not something that if you ask Baker Mayfield right now, if I did that, he'd say, yeah, yeah, he wouldn't say, oh, I don't remember. But even with that, I was like, coup, I do Raj. That was it for me when I looked at him play on playing the rose voice on play a lot during the regular season and that that he wasn't a Georgia beat him up. Yeah. And he look, he's a nice player at Oklahoma, but I'm thinking first pick overall. I don't know if you can draft a guy that's that's. Meet meet either, but I'll tell you what he was awesome last night. It wasn't just that they won for the first time since Christmas Eve of twenty six hundred and thirty five, six hundred and thirty five days. It wasn't just that the second stepped on the field. There was energy. The second he stepped on the field that never mind the people in the stands who clearly were energized by his presence, but the people on the field, his teammates were energized by his performance. The everything looked crisper faster, cleaner, everything about him translated to his very first appearance and only extraordinary. You know me I'm Debbie Downer Marino parade through a few balls behind guys, you know, but he didn't like tyrod. He didn't throw all his guy, his nose behind rod, four of fourteen for nineteen yards woops and yesterday in Keyshawn Johnson fashion. I decided to eat somebody's foot. Shove. Mouth. When I went on Stephen, a Smith show shortly after our show went off the air in Stephen and I were talking and he asked me about the Cleveland situation Baker Mayfield time. And I basically say Baker Mayfield it tyrod Taylor is the same quarterback is you know, well. Would've would've minute forty left in the first half. So I apologize may field as well as Stephen. But it just you could sense, like you said, any air something totally different teammates to you could just sense it? Yeah. All of a sudden. Joris Landry became Drovers Landry of the Miami Dolphins before he was just like, Jarvis Landry. That was it. He became the guy that they traded for big plays in a drive, lead a field goal. Tough catches down to the one yard line punch in a touchdown. He just was a different type of player. Baker Mayfield his first career completion to Jarvis. Landry Halloway goes out why the left three receivers here set of the right bakers, got two shots on his left hip tread or will snap it back. I attempt deals Scott Baker back Baker, looking Baker, low t. throws Landry gut it. He's at the forty five. He's at the forty eight yard line that Paul had a lot of mustard on that is exactly it right there. That courtesy of w k an art it had it had smoke on it. It was one of those throws he looked, ooh, okay. Okay. This is this is interesting and all of a sudden one throw news, career key, everybody in that stadium and on that field which just like, let's go this. Is different. This is new and one of the things I really liked about him when he got there and especially saw it on the field last night, it felt like at least from a distance watching from a distance that everyone else specially quarterbacks that had been drafted to Cleveland over the last seemingly ten or fifteen years. It was a damn. I gotta go to Cleveland, whereas with Mayfield he was excited to be there. He's excited something and it it translated ran into the field from the very first throw. I, it really did, and it was interesting as I tech somebody last night after the game. And I said, you were scared and he goes, yeah, with the other guy it. So I knew right then near just watching a game. I could tell that the particular person ticks did have the confidence in the other guy, just watching them run around. And then when Baker went into the game after game, wind of texted him and I'm like, yeah, he was scared. And he was like, yeah, and then our conversation obviously went on, but I won't share with you on air. It was just you could tell the difference. So the next thing we know rush, you know, Baker Mayfield he's one in, oh, he's got a beard. He'll be getting shaving commercial. Next we standing there with the shirt off some jeans rolled up. Demeer shaving. We got the underwear commercials, Baker Mayfield, you know, he's the next coming. He's already got like height. Machine is rolling. Gonna steal your thing a little bit where you're talking about over through some guys. I mean, he was growing overthrew eight. He wasn't as accurate as he's going to be a reason is because it's live bullets in a regular season game next game in the next game. After that, if you watch c. as a receiver, I watch a lot of different stuff when he throw the ball, it was a lot of twisting. Attorney was no run after catch really in. That's because he's new edit in once he gets in rhythm, the balls will be like handoffs opposed to pinpoint in guys having a twist and turn and get tackled at the same time seventeen to twenty three for two hundred in one yards. No touchdowns no interceptions a quarterback rating ninety four point. Nine sounds like how much of it key is just this is what he is and how and I'm not trying to throw cold water on it. But is there a little bit of a sense of lightning in a bottle that he came in and just had a great day and he's still going to go through the. Bumps and bruises, and because we saw Sam darnold last night. He sacked, he got sacked and fumbled. It was a sack fumble his offense. Alignment picked it up and run by that guy way. He got about twenty. Run the Cleveland Browns season. The office alignment. But I think when you look at it, it's not necessarily lightning in a bottle. What's going to happen here is they're gonna go back and watch the tape, and they're going to see some of the things that he did will and some of the things that he didn't do so well in, they're going to scrap the didn't do so wills the things that he did, what are going to try to continue to increase that formation wise, a row wise combination wise. They're going to say that him sales, okay, this is what he does. Well, so let's continue to ride this, but I think he, you know. The clock and his hand when he got sack holding the Baltimore, that's pretty common for young quarterback. It's not even that it's first time, especially, yeah, as time goes on, he probably will get a sense that this dude is chasing me now for the backside get rid of ball. Here's the silliest. In most obvious in you knew this was coming the question about whether or not Baker Mayfield is going to be the star from this point forward. Here's Hugh Jackson, I just I like to watch the tape. Obviously, Baker this great things. I mean, again, we don't play until Sunday. We got some days. Let's not get into those debates tonight in Oslo what he did tonight was outstanding for the football team force teammates and just the way he competed. But again, I have to watch the tape and then we'll go from there. I get Jackson is a head coach, and he's going to sound like one and talk like one, but the debate about tyrod Taylor and Baker, there is no debate on who the quarterback of this team is. Now for for anyone that for imagine running tyrod Taylor back out there. Next coach did. Coach, did they go back and watch the tape and you'll see what he did, what he did, and I never heard that 'cause I was sleep by the time. He. Okay. Key question for you. If tyrod Taylor doesn't get hurt, t t t t doesn't go down. They got pills for that. Does Baker? Yes. Getting on the field last night. One hundred percent LA? Okay. If t t stays the same into the third quarter four fourteen if he stays the same into the third quarter, I promise you, okay, Baker may feel was warming up for four what Assad at halftime to win this Reagan's fired. No, that's what they went. Told Hugh. The coaches staff would win told Hugh and little huddle is he, we gotta go with the guy, man, what's wrong with you wake up and he would say, yeah, you're right, you're right. We're going to go the other friend of the show, Hugh Jackson coach me in high school. So you know, it's what he's like. See an executive Pepsi one date. So when he was recruited me at ASU when I was in juke. Oh, he. So he coached anyone ASU. Right. He's recruiting me. He goes. I would. I was running from him because I didn't wanna talk to a issue 'cause I knew all these coaches. So he comes in the locker Rupe. He's looking for Beagles. I don't know why you're running for me. Let you sit your ass now you're not going to disrespect me old me more than. I was like. Top ten. It was the funniest thing. Really liked that voice. It's hard for me to explain how much I like that voice, Magic Johnson. You got a chance to sit down with the after his press conference, and one of the things in the press he was talking about Lonzo in. He is big on Lonzo coming into this season. We'll get into it next, it's the morning show. Keyshawn l, z and Travis has away feel. Bad me to sleep. Day, how big steak who are, is it him on in his no good for the all feel. It sounds like bar steakhouse somewhere. Right? All Brown with a bat panel. Dark too. Dark dark, yeah. Yeah. Red booths reading booth. Never played us again. I like it. Never. I like why? What's because you look like you're still in the bar baby. What's wrong with this? I won't early in the morning. Never do it again. Thank you. All right. So you went down of Silla yesterday. Got hit with magic places. Amazing. I have. It's amazing if the Lakers championship just based on a facility. I mean, did did you get tour the whole? Did you go through the whole thing that I didn't go through the whole thing, but I saw the see the play, allowing ear in interior portion of the stadium. Yeah, I mean the gym, and then I saw the sweets up top for the executives. What do you call it? The the. What do you call it? The south bay league Lakers. A. g. whatever you g. league? Yeah, I saw that portion. Chris was there had me there for three hours early better. It was fun and got a chance to sit there for three hours to be prepared better to be within late. He wanted to make sure we were not on time on the Travis program has not even the sweet tea. You're on the Travis program getting somewhere in our early. He figured me Elsie would be late. Wanted to get there early along with Amanda, but it was fun. It was good. It was. It was interesting hearing rob hearing magic speak gave you a lot of energy, at least it did for me that the Lakers are certainly looking bright in toward the future. Yeah. No. I mean, the enthusiasm and the energy is a as high of a pitch is it's been in years in USA since really, probably seven or eight years when there were legitimate championship team that LeBron's here, the young players that they have here. And quite honestly, the fact that magic in rob Pelinka the ones that are calling the shots and magic was talking yesterday and among other things that he was talking about was that Lonzo ball, and he said that he's ready for a breakout season after tweaking his shot, and he talked about how you know the Lakers didn't say you need to fix your shot. They said that Lonzo was the one that wanted to get in the gym. Lonzo was the one that wanted to work on and prove the percentages and all these sorts of things. And. Regardless of whose idea was it's, it's a good one, whether it was Lonzo or magic or rob or saying, hey, let's work on this Lonzo needed to address that and that he did and that it looks better than look smoother. It looks a little more orthodox. That's great news and thing is coming away from the press conference. You know, it's not a knock on Mitch Cup check, but it is in nocco, Mitch, Cup check. I don't know that I could set to oppress Kaz for actually Rogers. You know this, this was the first press conference I've ever been to outside of me thought of behind the my being behind the might have a, you have a notepad and a little Clark actually says. Right? I try to hide all six, five of me of six. Four. I was trying to hide. I was trying to hide. I'm like, hey, man, let me go upstairs. So I don't want to be around these people. I was just like, I don't want to just felt like Travis. They just felt like drivers, Sheila shot at a press conference room and you see kisha sitting there. But to note Pat, I saw him on the balcony. Unite. You're not mingling with the people. I did not want to be with handed chemists, Brian Eski. All dues bites your sales that look like. He's happy at a press conference with a no question. That was a not for me right sitting there going. No. Put me up top where have to talk for forty five minutes about nothing. We will hear your conversation with with magic coming up at seven thirty and at nine thirty. So a couple of different chances to get to hear that in Suissa great about that. They'll Travis is listening to magic. Those is said about Mitch Cup check. I just felt like listening to hit press conference in for sitting from the sweets. You just felt good. It was just weird. It was like, you know what I'm saying? Like you just felt good man. You felt like, oh, Lakers they rolling. He sold it to me. I'm buying hook, line and sinker. They got floor seats available while bottom. You know what? It is key. I, it's not dissimilar what we were talking about a minute ago with energy with Baker may. Baker Mayfield comes in and there's energy and there's enthusiasm, and there's maybe more than both of those things. There's belief, there's belief in what's about in with me. I don't know if there's anybody that's able to translate their own enthusiasm, their own energy into the belief and other people the way that Magic Johnson able, if magic is invested in something, if magic saying that something's going to work, people believe it and, and it's from the moment. He got there from the moment. He got there in the middle of the season. Two years ago, there was energy, there was belief and now you're finally starting to see the fruit. The results of all of the work that he's done LeBron is here lonzo's tweaked his shot that magic and sit at that press conference and. Sell it and it's real. No, it is in it. It was it. You know, I just thought that some of the things that he was saying as you say, before I spoke with him, we're gonna play that at seven thirty. And then again at nine thirty of for the listeners to get an opportunity to hear Magic Johnson, basically in a one on one interview with me and just it was it was fun. Being able to sit down and talk to him and talk to him about basketball in understanding how they wanted to build the Lakers what it is that they want it to do to make the Lakers great team. Again, it just it's just one of those things men. When you walk in that building is you just felt championship not maybe this year, but at some point in the near short term, full Siebel future, whatever that means, do you think that Lonzo is ready for a breakout season because to me, listening to what he was saying, reading what he was saying. It felt a little bit sales many in the sense that we. We've talked about everybody the LeBron we've talked about coups we've talked about Ingram, everybody got on Josh heart for a few weeks because he tore up the summer Li. It's been all of these guys. We talked about all the guys that come in Rondo and Stevenson in jail, Mckee and Michael Beasley. We spend all this time talking about everybody and really not Lonzo, and it felt a little bit like, hey, don't forget about the guy that we just pick number two overall. He's still a big deal. He's still a big part of this. It felt like a little bit of a pep rally for Lonzo to, we'll see, not for me in my wants it now with him, it wasn't that way. He, he, I thought he was honest about Lonzo in what he saw in where he believes Lonzo is in terms of moving forward, it didn't feel like that at all really didn't. He did not over praise him. He did not underselling. You think that the breakout is coming. What's break, what's a breakout? That's the quite the breakout set that the breakout is. Does he go to the hoop more? And when does he when he goes, does he finish? Does the free throw percentage get somewhere out of the forties and way north of that? Does the three point percentage get higher than barely above thirty? Does he become something other than a guy that you don't have to guard? He looked the numbers, ten, seven, seven, great numbers you do. You need to guard it? I'm assuming you didn't hear the end of, you know, not to Sam, Houston come in early in here. That is a correct assumption. So we'll get about not gonna. I'm not going to answer that for you. Allow you to sit around seven thirty. Yeah, in listen to Matt. Stuff to do for the next hour. You know, I want you to listen to what Magic Johnson really had to say about Lonzo high understand we said at the press conference. But what he said with me is a little bit different in what he said, which might Wallace on the guy where you like grilling him? No, it's just that you know, just athletes athletes, you kind of have a different conversation is just as what it is. I keep trying to tell you that we speak a different language. You know, what's the language? It's truthful. It is what it is when you have front of oppressor you, you know, you give them a little twenty million guys with their no pets guys. Near waiting, hit a a cold, hot dog, a cold hot dog, and some warm soda. He was depressed pox the cold out of soda. You don't seem like you're that excited about a member of a member of the media. Walked. I walked in yesterday as Chris in Amanda sit there curbside waiting on me and l z. I had no press pass. None zero. Escorted. Probably more than one list. I we'll stick with this. We'll talk about a breakout season for Llandough Alonzo Inwood. Magic also said about Luke Walton and whether or not he needs to get off to a good start that's coming up next. Don't don't. Don't don't. Don't. Don't. Don't. Don't. Don't don't. Don't. Don't don't. So Lonzo may or may not have a breakout season. You will hear your conversation with magic that's coming up at seven thirty cities. Very matter of fact wasn't overselling wasn't under promising. No, just Mary real Magic Johnson telling it like it is. You know when a guy like that sees a player that he's drafted. He knows what it is. He understands. Yeah, I, there's a little bit hesitation me and that because there are a lot of really good players that have turned into executives that Michael Jordan's not very good at it. Michael Jordan player different. How so? Because I think Michael's ego it knowing Michael been around Michael as a young player, New York City in Tampa Bay, and being able to just sit down with Mike at times and joke would even have fun with him. I think it's a different type of executive. I think Michael is more about his eagle in turning off players. His knowledge, basketball obviously is high, but. A lot of players that he's. Going after in terms of the draft, they've been less than him. Everybody's less than him. Yeah, but I mean less, you know, magic, go after a player or two this deficit. They're going like less than him, but not feeling threatened in the process. He's not afraid to. Gotcha. Young superstar. Well, I felt like I feel like MJ is like, man, I know he could play. That's cool, but I'm not trying to get to. Lonzo ball. I'm not trying to get to Foltz Tate. I'm just I'm cool with being where we're at. I, it's weird because Michael Jordan, I think still for most people, I'm on the LeBron side of this equation. But for most people, Michael Jordan is still the greatest player of all time. Yeah, it's interesting because it seems like an an correct me if I'm wrong, but if I'm if I'm hearing you right, it seems like when Michael was picking and Michael's evaluating Michael's deciding what it is he wants to do with his team, like he's almost threatened by by challenges to his greatness where, whereas Magic's completely comfortable in what it is that he's done in mass completely comfortable in his accomplishments in his place in Laker history. Yeah, championships that he won and whether it's drafting Lonzo, Brandon Ingram or anybody, he's not threatened by anybody that's coming in. He just wants everybody to have successes. MJ is not threatened by anybody coming in either because obviously he's one of the top three player that ever fade sure you know every his. World, it played basketball. There's no question about it, but I just think his his thought process is such that it's like. You know, I'm not gonna chase do. Yeah, you know, free agency. You sit there and you go, will free agency comes, you would think a little too cool for school. Thanks, Charlotte. Charlotte is going to be able to attract one of the big free agents. Right? Because it's Michael Jordan? Yeah, but that's a role like town. He's doing why not hustling j. j. made up talk. Your with me, you roll it with me, not. You find MJ magical hustle, magic magic. Let's go. That's what I'm saying. I get that. And the idea of Lonzo having a breakout season and hopefully it is nothing more than his evaluation of what it is and maybe maybe it is we'll find out. I wonder though if there wasn't some sense of Lonzo this off-season in Lonzo having a knee procedure and Lonzo missing as much time as did last year and Lonzo look fairly or unfairly. Lonzo got passed by a bunch of guys in that Laker. Situation in the sense that the guys that we talked about, obviously LeBron goes straight to the top of the list Kouzmouk past Lonzo, Josh Hart, at least close the gap on Lonzo. Brandon Ingram probably jumped back ahead of Lonzo again. And I wonder if this idea of him having a breakout season isn't something like, hey, let's not forget about Lonzo. He's an important piece of this. There's a little bit of ego stroke that goes in this. I think when when breakout season. Could be a lot of different things. Breakout season can be. He's improved his shooting, percentage, breakout, breakout, seizing may be. He's playing better. Defense, breakout season can be. He is. Take in the passing game any Volva to a whole 'nother level. It just depends on what he defines. His breakout season breakout season doesn't mean twenty and ten, twelve sure all the time. I think we'll break breakout season means especially coming from someone like magic is you are playing the number two pick. Yes, in our numbers as just like the impact is like a breakout season, you could say Tatum already had his Celtics. Yes. If you listen to my interview at seven thirty here in said about Lonzo tell you another piece of it could be he could break out season for him is he could be on the floor, important minutes, important games xactly that that could be breakouts. Absolutely. Because it feels like Rondos going to be that guy at today's. We sit here what today? September twenty. First. If you had to close your eyes and visualize the five guys on the court at the end of a close game, I don't think lonzo's out there, but maybe by the time we get into September November December, he's worked his way back. Talked to Irvin Magic Johnson in my exclusive interview right here on ESPN seventeen in the morning show. No. He talked about Rondo in one of the things that he did say about Rondo you here at seven thirty which is again a nine thirty in again at nine thirty. Which is interesting because he brought Rondo up. I didn't mention Rondo. He brought Rondo upside. I sit there and I was like, okay, and I just let him go, let him be magic. And it was interesting to hear what he had to say about building a roster, building the team in how they arrive to the point of building this roster and building the team of all the guys. They went out and got this off season. Hey, gopher other than LeBron obviously Rhonda was the best pick on is going to be an important part of what they did this year God. Yeah. I mean, magical, explain it to you at seven thirty and nine thirty. Magic also said yesterday, talking about Luke Walton because one of the questions that we've all been talking about is how quickly does it start? We saw when the Bronwyn to Miami got off to a slow start. I think there are eight nine to the first seventeen games when LeBron came back to Cleveland, it took a minute for that to come together. And of course, in all both of these situations, they ended up going to the finals in both of those years, but he doesn't have those sorts of players here at least we don't think so yet in the question about whether or not the Lakers get off to a slow start, what happens with Luke Walton because we remember LeBron and Erik Spoelstra at the beginning, we're not on the same page. The story goes, it LeBron went to Pat Ryan said, hey, I'm not feeling this and Riley, get back down there. He's the guy. Well, I sensed in just having a a. Conversation with the great one that Luke Walton is. Okay. I since that that he'll be okay because one, he played anyone in that respect level. Even though he was a a contributor voice, Larry start woke row. I I like to use contributor because role player just sounds weak. I certainly didn't mean it like that. No, I know. I'm just saying I contributed contributor. Yeah. Certainly contributor mad it talking to magic. It just felt like LeBron was okay with him as a coach because he respected him as a contributor on championship teams. So that's kind of, you know, the way I felt, you know what key, I don't know what's going on, but the more and more that you think about what's going on with Luke Walton. I just I'm I'm excited about it and I'm excited that magic said what he said about how he doesn't necessarily have to get off to a good start that he's going to be fine one way or the other. Because as I was talking to Luke, we said, don't worry if we get off to a bad start. That's what magic said. We have seen that with LeBron go to Miami. We've seen that when he came back to Cleveland, he's going to struggle because they're so many new moving parts, but eventually we're going to get. We're going to be a really, really good team. Trouble in the streets. Man. It's a two car crash blocking the right lane on six. Oh five. That is the thing. Abra freeway. Some you from Los Avezzano north at Rosehill roll back up to severally boulevard, say, you know, little congested effectively probably twenty minutes, twenty minutes Rosemead boulevard over if you wanna get into downtown Eric. Most of our listeners are coming from that side in the downtown LA as you know or they're coming from northern or the I eat member to kilt coming from the i. e. a lot of our listeners travel to six, five, zero five. They go from ten five ninety one. Those are all freeways here. Here. Again, it's a two car crash, blocking the right lane. Thank April freeway, which is six. Oh fun. You gotta know that the job. Touching me. Helicopters getting crowded. Oh, man. No, I together no one's ever been in ice that move rose, meet before road, rose, Hill's roll back up to Everley boulevard. You're right. The copter we'll get you to work. I travel. Thank you. Jesse for about twenty minutes. You gotta get. That's a good way to work your way around it through the San Gabriel freeway. These six five. Will she the heads up key everybody on the road. We'll get to work a little bit faster along the way you SC dying. Is it gonna get at the Coliseum. The night was zoo is in town. We'll get into next morning show Keyshawn Elsie and Travis. Vulnerable. Hey, BelAir birthday key where you don't see it. What Tom I wear on man. What's this? On the. There you go there you, sorry. I was thinking, jazzy, Jeff is what I was thinking or will call in forty seven years old. He doesn't even get the respect of being called Fonda. Nah. Fasel what's Ribeiro Ribeiro remember on silver spoons. Did you ever watch a already. Already had the, the magic are not magic, Michael Jackson commercial to the Pepsi. Yes, that we're burned his head up magic. You mean. Poisoned your brain right. Joel concert where he let himself on fire. Yeah, because it was at the Shrine Auditorium, I remember. Yeah. And we were little kids in. They needed to seat fillers or whatever. So they came into the neighborhoods and stuff like that. And did you think it was part of the show or did you know? I had no idea. Yeah. Just was just there enjoying myself as a kid. Michael's Alfa l. a. little do Ana, figure it out in my forty seven years old call to the fines. Oh, his birthday brought to you by Jaguar, Land Rover, Newport Beach off the seventy three towards the seat caught in Saguenay Hilton funds. That's like a hybrid, whatever may visit Land Rover, Newport, beats banks, Alphonso repairable. I don't wanna see what you're going to do to fill when it's his birthday when it comes around again, check. He did very very, and it was reincarnated as Michael Collins golf. Yeah, yeah, that's not. That's not bad. Got it's trying to figure it out. Key clay Hilton clay Helton has. I would argue the biggest game that he's had to coach in a very long time, biggest game of his coaching career. It very well might be is one into with bad losses to Stanford in Texas, coming off of a season where the other teams that he played Notre Dame, Alabama and so on. So they just Ojo state, just put it on him. And now he's looking at a Friday night. Then Friday night games are weird. They start late your little bit out of your rhythm because it's a Friday and not a Saturdays, college football player, and you got a freshman quarterback who hasn't looked great. So far you've got a running game. That's non existent. You got pressure on your offense coordinator and you've got a team in Washington state coming in three now and played anybody. But Mike Leach is one of those because he's gonna find a way to score points. The interesting thing about Friday night is JT days. Used to plan on Friday. So his body his clock and hope. Mine hopefully will be, oh, it's Friday night. Interesting thing about. This whole episode is going on in I, the Coliseum is if clay Hilton does not win football game, and I just remembered that watch the state beat us last year. We can't lose the Washington state twice. Shouldn't lose to Washington state twice in a decade, much less twice in a row. It just we can't do that that that would be embarrassing. You know, it's embarrassing, but I feel much much felt last week they have to know the sense of urgency as a coaching staff in a football team. The how important it's going to be to win this football game to get off to a fast start to get Stephen to touches that he needs to make sure that the football is being distributed across the board, not to one guy, Ross Perot not to one guy. You have to get it to everybody. You don't have, you know, in, they have to know these things t Martin has to know that he's going to get five. Why? Why does he know now when he didn't know last week or the week before or last season or because you're right. But my question keeps coming back to this beating wash. States should not be a moment is sale at exhale. It is all right, we're, but it. But it shouldn't be. You know, this better than its US USC beating Washington state should never be who, okay, we're, we're, we're okay. We're back on solid ground. This should be. This should be a defacto by for US. That's where we are. Now. That's the scary part. That's where we. We are right now. We can beat our chests. We can play arrogant. We can be foolish if we choose to do so Washington state Cougars now walk into Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, is that what is still called feeling like Washington state from thirty years ago, it's not doesn't work like that anymore. They feel like USC is sorry, and we getting ready to kick him right near rear. That's what they feel. The reason it doesn't work like that anymore. Nothing to do with Washington state has everything to do with USC, and that's why I think the clay Helton t Martin era is so alarming because it's not that Washington look every once in a while, a program that used to be not very good, get organs. Perfect sample Oregon for thirty years was blowzy. They were never a good team. They'd have a good quarterback once in a while, but they want a team that you really sweat. And then all of a sudden they got the program most because Phil Knight started throw crazy money at it. They started to get better players and the program became a team that competed for national championships. And now. Oregon is a football program that's legit. No, it is Washington state that didn't happen there. SE came back to the pack more than anybody went and got him and UC playing Washington state in a must win game. It doesn't even add up in my brain, and it is. You're right one in three how their sale just like you said one and two. It's like, Ooh, I like one in three at one of you still want to the game. I mean, like seriously as a season ticket holder or you still going to used to walking around with show USC sweatshirt. Oh, fight. All. Yeah, you still screaming at because I won't be a promise you want you will for the big games, right? Like no, will be able to do it. MAC. UCLA SE tickets away yesterday, to be honest with you showed the Rose Bowl him away. I'm not going to be update UCLA sorry. And so are we can't. I can't. I can't even. I can't. I can't do that. I'm not even gonna go to the game tonight just because I, I'm not going to be able to do you have to be able to do. You have to ask yourself if you're in ministry at SE. If you're a fan of SE if you're a booster SE what are we right now? What are we USC the way that when when I think of your Trojans, when I think of the Trojans that I kid where they don't want emit heat Carol, they went USC. You saw that uniform come out of the tunnel and you knew you were about him. We're barest and we don't want a minute because we are SE and we're again, and we feel we, you know, we do what we wanna do, how we wanna do it and it's not like that anymore. No, it college football. It was not that long ago in college football USC in in. Beja programs, coaches, Rockstars. Not a guy if you know they just right. Okay, is getting work out? No, no, they're rockstar, yes. The coordinators or Rockstars. They're looking to become head coaches in a year two. That's what that's what the coordinators looking to become head coaches in a year to even he loses a coordinator every year to another type of job. He had an eyelash. The office coordinator common NFL team because he just says, well, Tosh the coordinate Alabama. He'll be a head coach, two years, guaranteed. Kirby smart, same type of we can't how come we couldn't go get Kirby smart, right? That's what you're saying. How come we couldn't come because it was overly cautious that the reason, because the guy at Clemson Brent Venables sangam assistant, the defense, the defense coordinator at Clemson has Brent Venables believe I'm saying his name, right? That's the type of guy that you need to go get. If you're looking to do somewhat head, coach, you need to go get up day, were debt do. They were gun shy because they went from kiffin to Sark and it was just had been bad because he fire kiffin on the runway. And then Sark has his problems that he goes through what he goes through. You got to blow him out because it's embarrassing university. So it's almost one of those look. I can't have another situation. I just need somebody that's not gonna put me in an embarrassing situation. Somebody that can I can put him on TV. I can put them in front of boosters, can put them in front of the kids, and I can put him in front of parents and everybody's gonna feel good about it because he's a good guy, but that has to stop that. I couldn't agree more is whole notion of you. Gotta have a west coast coach coach your team that that's that's a bunch of nothing. Oh, we gotta get a west coast guy. One of our guys coach the team, no man, you go get anybody. Would you not get Lincoln Riley right league around find one of those guys. I'm not saying this rush. Is this the segment for someone to run down gotta, say a baby people awaiting Sean will talk about the NFL. No, no, no keys not going to pull back the pig skin. Maybe he will. It's coming up next.

The buccaneers Pewter Alternative Vapor the number four the buccaneers white vapour the number five the buccaneers red and the number six. The buccaneers red eye uniform. Four he has four of the top ten selling uniforms. Oh by the way number. Ten is buccaneers pewter alternate so he has five of ten crazy four five six in ten. Or Lindsey together. Let's I'm kind of thinking to I'm thinking to hear I heard his Jersey's really popular. Okay let's go to to a number one and number two Dalwin into one and two dolphins aqua to as Aqua Jerks Aqua Jersey number one and number two is his White Jersey his dolphins White Jersey. So that means the top five reads like this number one number two number three number four Brady number five. Brady number six brady. You're just missing. Seven and eight seven. The Guy who has seven also has nine and then you're missing eight so you've got two of the four case a one guy's got to in one guy's got one correct okay. Was there anybody else in this draft bow? Who's the other? There's two in the other quarterback in this off. Yeah no borough player ticket borough Joe Borough there jober number eight his bengals. Black Jersey Joe Boroughs White Jersey is also number eleven soon. You're only missing the person that has seven and nine seven strikes. Okay could it be a cowboy cowboy? Jalen hurts now. I don't think so. I don't think. Jalen hurts just thinking quarterbacks Any other quarterbacks change Tinos any quarterback shapes fill rivers. I don't think they'll rivers would be there. He Changed Teams. Let's let's take a shot at. Let's take a shot at Justin. Herbert Charge forget it. No Kate so no oh yes. Let's do good good good strike one but it was a good guest. Justin Herbert's new charges. Jersey is ranked twelfth. Okay so you just outside of the top ten but NOPE. That's only one strike. That'd be a Charger Jersey on and does not have to be number one though it. It will not be a charger jersey. Lindsey read the room read the room. Sheffield he was he was like last year he watched last year. Is He a little post type? Let's try Baker Mayfield strike to Baker. Not In the top twelve. You have one guest left. Okay I think call how. `Bout the how `bout jared stem. Yeah quarterback Patriots. I feel like a lot of people though are still not running out buying. Because they still don't overcharge starry right. The Jersey is a hot item. Right now okay. Let's let's throw throw out. Hick yourself when you mean we really yes. I don't think so. Mason says yes and you have struck out all right guy. I think huge name change teams number. Seven and number nine belongs to Rob Gronkowski about him. Did THEY EARS. Future alternate is number seven and the buccaneers read is number nine. You guys actually did very well. They're unable to come up with GRONK. Yeah that's it all right. Let's see I'm going to do this one. Let's do this. Okay John. In that one America will usher in an era of spice spaceflight next week and discovery and the science channel are offering a front row seat the networks will share live coverage of the May twenty seven launch of space XS Falcon nine rocket with Crew Space Launch Live. America returns to space starts at eleven. Am Pacific Time from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral among the guest lineup for the program are for some reason. Katy Perry and a bunch of former astronauts. The show will also feature an interview with an astronaut. Who's on the International Space Station? Where the SPACEX mission is actually headed. Do you think so think about this. This is the first time that we're sending somebody to space in a really long time. And they're offering a full access. Look at it this is Elon. Musk company. Do you think many people will watch the live? Launch of the SPACEX flight Or is it just people just not interested in space? It's a great question. I'm not interested in space so watching but Michael Thompson will be watching for sure. He loves rockets and planes and stuff like that. I'm going to guess this does do a fairly big. I think more people care about it than don't I just don't think it makes for great television. You're just kind of sitting there looking at the inside of a rocket ship and there isn't a lot of of action there so that's why I wouldn't be into it but are you going to watch it. Yeah I mean I will have it on here. I'm I've got my house set up so got a TV. In front of me. As I'm getting ready for the show I can certainly imagine that at eleven. Am On the twenty seventh. Which is next week? I will put it on. I want to see what it looks like. By the way this is the first private company. Never do it. They've been launching rockets space. X This is the first time Elon. Musk is actually sent people up and they're going to go all the way to the International Space Station I actually. I'm kind of intrigued. By the whole thing I will definitely put it on now if he puts Katy Perry in the spaceship news. And it's like a reality show then I'm all over it like I have. I don't have a good answer for. Why Katy Perry as part of the coverage because she's Katy Perry? It's like four four as rats. Katy Perry she has five million twitter followers. It's putting Kim Kardashian on the show flow. Lindsey said something interesting are Elon. Musk and Katy Perry friends. They are right now. Could be the reason I know Katy Perry's having a baby with Orlando Bloom. That's her boyfriend but I don't know if she's friends with Elon. Musk their friends boyfriends husbands. Whatever our friends Something all right so anyway. Katy Perry part of the coverage. I'll have it on. Its next week. We're going to space again. All Right Punch fast. Track all right. Mace former Major League baseball slugger. Jose Canseco posted a series of tweets. Last week about how he is going to be. Teaching Dream Control seminars. Here's what he said quote. I'm going to teach dream control seminars. After you get your masters in dream control you'll be able to enter facility where you'll be put in a coma induced dream state for whatever time you choose and be able to do whatever you want with no restrictions whatsoever can. Saco later Added FIRST LESSON IN DREAM. Control Ask Yourself. Am I dreaming as much as possible? Once you ask that question while you're dreaming you will know what to do. Limitless power in dream control a gate to another life and quote. I have many questions here but I'll ask just a few. Would this even be a good thing? A lot of people dream big. But then you wake up and you're back in whatever your life is. Would you want to do this well? It reminds me of a couple movies inception. Obviously which is a fantastic movie by Christopher Nolan where they put themselves into a dream state and then they fight these battles. While they're in their dreams total recall. That was the total recall is another one Flatliners is the third one where people would actually die from it and then see what the afterlife was about. I don't think I would be the first one in line for this. This sounds a little bit. Dangerous inducing yourself into a coma so I would not be up for this. Well that lead to myself to the second question. Is there any possibility? Even a one percent chance that can Saco knows what he's talking about here or is this just a money. Grab like would you trust? Jose can say with your mind I would not trust Jose Canseco I think that much of his life was a science experiment using PD's and various other stuff. I'm intrigued by the idea. I'm not saying I would never do it but I just wouldn't be the first one in line to do it right and even if I did agree to do it I'm not going to. The Jose can SACO Dream Center. I think I would go to. Let's say an actual doctor. Why would I trust? Jose can SACO to put me into a sleep induced coma. I may never wake up what I will say. This can take out. Do you remember dreams? You don't sleep much. No but here's an interesting thing about dreams. Do you know you always dream in black and white and do you know that did it? Okay you do. You always dream in black and white and no dream ever lasts longer than thirty seconds. That doesn't seem possible angry. Google theory none. I mean these are White House that scientifically proven it. Will I mean I I actually did? I googled dream experts. And this is what dream. Experts say came up actually says while most people report dreaming in color there is a small percentage of people who only dream in black and white twelve percent of people dream in black and white. Everybody else has color have really boring dreams. Because I'm always dreaming of black and white but what about the thirty second thing? Is that also bogus? We're getting this information uber facts. Well that's wrong. Dream airy the dreams may occur during stage asleep over these things missed less visible. The drink can vary. They may last for a few seconds or approximately twenty to thirty minutes. So they'll do perfect lied to me. You are are passing along unbelievably fake facts about dreaming. Jose Canseco story was real. He actually believe that Dream Center. I remember my dreams very clearly and you know I often go back to exactly the same places like my dreams like. I definitely go to New York. I have a lot of dreams where I'm living in New York. I have a lot of dreams where I'm at Bowling Green and exactly the same place so I dream at the same places. It's always different story for year. Old Sleeping Love Sleeping and I love dreaming and I remember my dreams really clearly for years my recurring dream was I showed up for a final completely unprepared like I got there. And here's the final. I'm like what what are you talking about? We have a final a day and then I woke up and found out. It wasn't real. I have no idea why that was a recurring dream for me but it was a lot of years. I would say for probably five years after I got out of college and the whole time I was in college so I found odd dreams fascinating. I love. There's an episode on Netflix. On that What we learned serious about dreaming and there's all kinds of theories and whatnot. Nobody really exactly seem to know what's going on. But most people believe that. It's your just your subconscious thoughts that you can't actually dream of anything that you've never seen before. Now that's interesting by the way the recur. The A lot of people have the recurring finalist dream. It's very common that you either forgot. You didn't take the course unprepared. I I'm not. I'm not sure what it actually means. I'm not sure alive. I'm in school or I used to. I still actually like recently. Had A dream where I'm at the radio station and I forget how to run the board and how we have to go the air and a totally forgot how to around the board. I don't know how to get us on the air because something crazy like my my mind was fried or going to school and not like you said not knowing. What's on the test or even that we had a test? I've a lodgings about school interesting all your dreams I think so I think when I come in the middle of a dream I can make myself go back to that dream. I'm always when I wake up in the middle of a dream. I'm like Damn that was fun. What the hell why. Yeah no serial killer chasing you you get yourself out of it. No but I had the whenever you run where you're running down the dark hallway and you just kind of our loss. I don't know what that indicates that one I have. I have one when I lived in New York. I always wanted to go to the Friars Club. I was never a big enough deal to go to the Friars Club. I often have dreams where I'm at the Friars Club in New York. How do you can hang up but you know what it looks like if you're not a lot in it I've an image. It's like a big bank with shine there. There is a seinfeld episode about this. Was there or Jerry goes to the Friars Club. And he didn't bring a sport coat and he has to wear a sport coat and then he loses it and it becomes. That's basically the episode. But yeah maybe that's how you knew more coming up next for you may look seventeen. Espn I rolling on with fasttrack and thought shits to you fast. Track all right. Wfan in New Yorkers reporting. A Yankee Stadium will become a drive in movie theater in the summer. It'll be a combination of a drive in movie live music concert and a card nine in the festival. Like event will happen every weekend starting in July. They also say that the sage will be lifted an emcee and hosts will stream from a PA system to dial go directly in the chew cars. Now guys would you be down to go to one of these if the if they was local at dodger stadium now man. I'm looking for stuff to do. Now wait a minute. You won't go to a restaurant but you'll do this. I'm in my car. I'm in my own car. You're completely socially distance. You're in your own car. You bring your own food. No I think that the idea was you would get food from the people a Yankee Stadium. Sharing probably should the option to buy concessions. And if you don't want you have to like food trucks out there. Maybe and then if you WANNA buy something from out there or would you go to a food truck no no? I'm going to bring my bring my own food to see the concert. It's like the Hollywood bowl tra I don't want to go out and mix with people right now. I'm not mixing what was socially distant and you had a clear path to get there and they were limiting the number of people that waited in line. Like possibly I'll say possibly what if they brought it to your car. Yeah Oh that's another thing. Yeah what if Brian Good idea? Well I was GONNA say if they're bringing into your car. Aren't they violating social distancing? That's what I do now. I go drive to pick up food and they have everything set out on the curb and they just hand it to me. I think it is a fantastic idea though to see a concert or to see a movie in a gigantic parking lot with an elevated stage. I'm I'm all for that. I mean whether food food or not I'm GONNA bring my own booze. I'm going to bring my own. You know what I'm going to bring my own dinner and I'm GonNa have a party in the car while I'm watching Bon Jovi. Or whoever springsteen perform or if. I'm seeing the the new James Bond movie I'm all for it. Yeah I would be willing to give it a try. Sure why not. I mean who knows? I think we've got to be willing to try stuff that we maybe never would have considered before car. You're naturally socially distanced. Yeah I would do I would you? I'd love to do it. It sounds like something. That goes on in sermons ballet all all the time. It's called Cinema Park. Basically where they go to different parks and we put on a movie. But it's just your cars. Hey by the way it's being of people handing you food like if somebody walked up to your car and handed you food you get somebody that this is something or nothing. There's a there's an urban plates right around the corner from where I live. That's that I don't know if you guys have one of those by you but they're really good and so I walked in there to pick up takeout the other night and I I had a mask on and the girl behind the counter I pre-ordered so my food was all in a bag. The girl behind the counter handed me my food and she didn't have gloves on. She had a mask but no gloves. I looked over to the where they prepare the food right and those people had gloves on. Is it something nothing that the people handing me? My food don't have gloves on Nothing there's all kinds of research that goes back and forth on this because a lot of people say well. If you're wearing gloves constantly throughout the day you're being less cognisant washing your hands and your any germs that you may touch with the gloves you you could be spreading onto other surfaces. Because you think you don't wash your hands as much so that's why. I wonder why I hadn't been wearing them. Because it makes me super hyper aware I bust my hands. Okay even if I agree with all that my thought would be if you're handling food in any way shouldn't you have at least those cheap plastic gloves on but the package not the that? That's that's how I justified it when I ate the food. Yeah she's handling money actually not supposed to be using gloves because I prepaid so I picked it up. Yeah but yeah. No I think I think as long as she's not handling the actual food she's okay with no gloves to actually hand you a package. Like I'm assuming one order GRUB or somebody to come over here. They're setting a box down or a bag down on my front staff and ringing the bell so I know it's there but I'm assuming they weren't wearing gloves when they dropped off the bag yeah permanent. Yeah all right Lindsey fast check. I had a little bit of the game free is. We've been talking a lot about this squabble between the billionaire owners and the millionaire sometimes couple hundred thousand air players on my found a recent article that had a list of all of the all the MLB owners and how much they're currently worse. How much the team is worse. As far as the the principal owners of the teams on. So I'm GonNa ask you guys which one has more. This is the book of paycheck. John Ireland's book and I'm GonNa give you the name and the team and you guys tell me who has more. I'll start with you Steve. We'll go with John. Fischer of the days or John Middleton of the phillies goad John Middleton of the Phillies Okay. I also will go. John Middleton of the phillies French Milton Phillies. Okay they're all right even though it's close by a Billion Johnson which billion apart when you look at all these these billions numbers together. It's kind of funny when you consider them close all right. We're going to go with the less than one billion dollar bracket okay. These guys are considered quote on for four hundred million dollars. Yeah Hunt couple hundred millionaires. Let's with Ron Fowler. Padres and Stuart Sternberg the raise old. Both cheap I will say Ron Fowler has more run fowler the PADRES has more I'll say Ron Fowler of the padres says more French padres owner. They're all incorrect. On that Ron Fowler is a five hundred million dollar man and Stuart Sternberg of the raises an eight hundred million dollar man boy. They're both cheap couple of war as we'll we'll take out of the blue collar working class. They just broken a billion give or take. These are very very close. We'll go with John. Stanton the mariners or John Sherman royals owner. I will go John Stanton. The mariners didn't the royals just get sold. I'll go with the royals guy. They did just get sold. Yes Anti Chow Go. Stanton futch and Mace are incorrect. Janis Right Yeah. You gotTa have a bunch of money to buy a big point. One billion one billion okay. Let's do one more one more here. Here's never liked my games pursue one. That's for all the marbles from the one percenters bracket okay. Now this one's really close. We're going to go with Charlie Johnson of its and Ted in Mark Lerner. The nationals was nationals owner. All right I'm also going the nationals owner John. I can win it because I'm ahead if I go to the nationals owner. But what fun would that be? GimMe the giants guy. You're actually right anyway. The giants has point one billion dollars more than chatted Mark Learner of the nationals. How much would that be point? One billion one hundred million a hundred million guys talking about their lack of money losing money and much in this again just because it bears repeating the guy who owns Amazon. Jeff bezos is worth a trillion dollars. That is a thousand billion dollars. A thousand billion dollars than remember sane amount of money fasttrack coming up next for Mason and Ireland seventeen. Espn I roll it on with fasttrack and French to me fast track Raucous Texas beach event known as go topless jeep weekend ended with two people hospitalized. The nearly two hundred others arrested on various charges. The Sheriff said charges included assault driving without a seatbelt. Dwi public intoxication. The brought together thousands of jeep lovers and four wheel enthusiasts along with people who joined a bunch of topless women by the time the gathering ended more than one hundred and nine hundred ten had been in custody. Numerous unrelated chargers Texas reopen. The beaches may want after shutting them down because of the virus. Pandemic of video from the weekend's festivities showed many of the attendance partying drinking and topless and not practicing social distancing. John have months of Quarantine. Made us just frigging crazy. Is it possible that this is post quarantine behavior why are you hating on go topless Texas weekend? What is wrong with you in? What do you have against the top list of Texas? This is an attack question on your behalf and I won't scan for it. I as always stand for the topless people of America. What is wrong with you so they got into GPS? They took off their top and they just let things chance. Who are we to say? No Yeah I think there is so much pent up craziness. I in no way endorsing ignoring social distancing and all that stuff you're Texas topless weekend. I'm afraid they're going to be more events like back. Go Topless weekend in Florida. You've made it up no totally totally real totally real in Texas go. Topless jeep weekend did happen. Yeah I am a little afraid that there is so much pent up energy. That stuff like this is going to happen all over the place Lindsay what do you think will this be duplicated anywhere else? I think it will and I was actually just going to jump in and say I heard a clip of I guess just the news report of what happened as far as the go and what you hear these people talking and just whatever they're doing out there on the beach it's makes me feel like. I am Dumber for having listened to it. I guess to find so if you are hitting on jeep total Polis Texas weekend. I'm not hearing on it. I just think that the people that they chose to put it in this video might have been a little too tops or something. I Dunno a pretty yeah fudge fast track or guys next week the NBC. Sports channel will air a series of old Saturday night live episodes all hosted by athletes. One look at the schedule. And you see a ton of starpower Michael Jordan. Lebron James Ronda Rousey John Cena Tom Brady. Peyton Manning Eli Manning. Jj Watt. Andy Roddick are just a few of the people who will be hosting shows. These are all old shows obviously but there are two athletes. I haven't mentioned one has hosted three times and another is hosted four times. Can you name them both? Go hosted quite a few times naming peyton manning. I mentioned Charles Barkley Charles. Barkley is one. He's the one who's hosted three times and the other one. That's four four times more than any other athlete. Ever four-times wow. Tom Brady is hosted it. But I don't know he probably was. I mentioned Tom. Brady tell us what sport it would give it away. But let's just say I'm surprised Lindsey hasn't gotten it. Oh interesting so it is Brian. I mentioned Lebron. You mentioned on one of the shows. Yeah Lindsey hasn't gotten it so it's somehow Cleveland Related Lindsay. I'm grind play I. It's not Cleveland Related. I would also think funchess would come up with this. Nba No no all right. This guy is now known more for being an actor than an athlete. But you know it's John Cena four times YEP has hosted for no no. You're right it's the rock. I'm sorry John. I mentioned Johnson. The Rock is the one who he's mentioned four times. He's one of four times the rock by the way every time he hosts. It's funny each hilarious. He's unbelievably funny. Yeah in boy. He's now known more for being a movie star than he is isn't he? Suri is absolutely is one of the most bankable stars in the world if his name is on a movie it sells worldwide. It's Johnson that way. That's why mixed them up for is not as big. But I'll tell you different. Yeah he's a totally different comes from a completely different area era of wrestling to whereas Iraq was the top of the world and Seino was the WWe in general as a whole wasn't nearly as popular Al- popular as it was seen as it was during the rap. 'cause rack which is everywhere. I think San is getting there so the ultimate compliment in Saturday night live hosting is if you're in the five timers club. Yup and the Rock. The next time he host will be in the five timers club that is reserved for people like Tom. Hanks Steve Martin Alec Baldwin. Those type of people and one more and the rock is in yet. Cena's in a really funny movie called blockers very and it's funny. I also thought was good as Amy Schumer Boyfriend. Trainwreck entrance very funny. He often plays that character. Either that or her ROIC action here. That doesn't have whole lot of wines. I don't think that he is anywhere near the amount of talent as far as an actor. Does I agree with the rockets. The is one of the single most charismatic actors. There is right now. He's he's so frigging good all right fast track. It's time time for mystery voice. It is Lindsay versus John Terrible Office.

That was good That game supported. If you lost. He would be disappointed. Chat devastated all right in Spain. They've invented a robotic bartender. The ideas that it can pull you a pint without the slightest concern about contamination. The robot made its debut in the city of Seville began enjoying new freedom. Spain's the two-month lockdown with bars and cafes and half the country allowed to reopen their outdoor terraces sitting in the middle of. The bar is the gigantic robotic arm with a Captain Hook pincher smoothly reaching over to the dispenser taking a Plastic Cup. Spinning it around to hold it at an angle under. The tap gradually straightening the cup as it fills the robot then places it on the counter for the customer to pick up. The biannic Barman has drawn a steady stream of both customers and curious. Onlookers John. Do you think robot bartenders could be a real thing after this pandemic is over? You just said the key thing I think before the pandemic it would have been a novelty wears off after a couple of months but now all the rules are different. I'm not so sure that robotic bartenders like we were talking earlier about. What do you do in a stadium? Okay what do you do in an arena? What do you do if you go to a concert? Well if you were pre ordering drinks and robotic bartenders were making the drinks or even putting your food on the counter. Wouldn't you be more inclined to buy it if there was no humor if it was what they now refer to as contactless food purchasing? I I think that now this thing. There's a place for this thing don't you? I absolutely do Although you know. Here's the thing about bartenders when all this is over when there's a vaccine when life returns when life really really returns to normal. Don't you WANNA be able to have human contact with the bartender? I mean think about this in history when we think bartender. It's somebody that you can talk to somebody that you can You can unload your feelings on John. You were a bartender. Human interaction is part of being a bar isn't it? It is but people like you are won't even go into restaurants. No I'm talking about when all this is over when there's a vaccine when when everything is clear don't want to get your beer from a person. Sure but in the meantime until we have a solution. Do you think. There's a place for the ROBOT BARTENDER. Anna probably is. I think it sets a bad precedent for people in the service industry. I mean I put myself through college paying for everything working like sometimes three or four jobs like waiting tables and bartending. So I just feel like it's one of those things where a lot of these to go. What are they called casual? Dining restaurants do everything on the touchscreen now and that's eliminated the need for a lot of people. Sit down. Restaurants. Are doing that too and it just makes me nervous because essentially good great industry. I it was always good to me and working and you obviously you have your Weirdos but I think it's a good thing to be part as far as you said with the Camaraderie and bonding with people. Even if it's a complete stranger who serving beer eliminating a job. There's no question about that. It is limited and a lot of our automation stuff is eliminating jobs. That won't ever come back so I think we've got to be careful with some of this stuff when we think long term horizon after a vaccine and after this thing is all over we still want people to have those kinds of jobs district appreciate this. When I bartended in college we bartended for this guy who owned two bars and a bunch of fraternity kind of handed it down over the years so for about a ten year period there were probably twelve of us that bartended for the sky and picked up most of the shifts and so he was noticing that some of the bartending shifts were making less money than the other ones and so he brought in somebody one of his friends. Who'd been in the bar business for a long time to come in and watch and see could figure out why on some Thursday nights the take was really big and then the following Thursday. It wouldn't be as big and so they call me into the office after this guy gets done with this report and any of my friends will tell you. This is one hundred percent. I had no idea even like deny. They said John of all the bartenders. Here you know you pull in the least amount of money really and I said why he goes only one person the whole time. He said you're too talkative. He is you talk to every he said. Your tips are good. He goes your tips are comparable to everyone else's but you'll stay in one part of the bar and talk for five minutes. That's four minutes of sales that you're giving away by trying to be a Nice Guy. You've gotTa talk less and mix more drinks and all my friends could so. Can I tell you that from beginning? Ireland's Park we've ever had because all he does. It's not a restaurant was it. One of them is still there. It's not far from where Mason lives. A place called the San Francisco Saloon. Oh Yeah On Olympic near Barrington and the high the same owner Marshall Sutter's. That was on the corner of it. Might BE PICO. Come to think of it. San Francisco might be Pico in Barrington and the other place near Pico and Bundy get depends on the type of place that it is because there are a lot of places where you know when I had bartending job. One purpose where it was really high value fast paced slain drinks as fast as humanly possible thing and then the other one was like a slower hole in the wall bar where you might have one hundred and the amount of customers but if it's a guy who wants to come in and sit there and tell you life story and he's GonNa tip you really for the most part. You wanted to know who those people are regulars and they really well for it so I had. That was one of the best jobs I ever had. I had money my pocket all the time. They finally had to come to me and go. You need to stop talking. So yeah well you know. It's funny when Richard Schiff was on the culture. Podcast your friend Richard Schiff. He told me that the thing about playing golf with you is that you never shut up. No it's what he would tell you is is that I do. I basically do a running soundtrack of his game. That's what he said he said. When you hit good shots he he would tell you. It's great because it feels like you have a real announcer calling your shots and when you hit bad shots you're like John. Shut the F. But he's right. Yeah I have a running commentary. Da- you are talking your guy. I'll write coming up next for you. It's time people time of the evening when we do some cross talk. Mason and Ireland along with Alan Leeway. Because we're right on the verge of Suihua at sunset seventeen. Espn I ta Seventeen Espn Mason and Ireland. Is that special time of the evening rolls around right around this time every weeknight time for that man with that one room apartment the Murphy bread full glass of Gin full glass of Gin full. Las Sleep at Sunset Balance Lee was here sleep. What what are you doing man? What's going on guys? You said this is the second best. Show that you've ever had yup second-best after a show I did in nineteen eighty six and you ask John if you remember that show and John Response had met Mason in nineteen eighty six. I was why you gotta realize that doing the show day. No I was doing the show with somebody else. The best show ever did was with somebody other than Dan. Whitey from the La Times. Yeah just just Posted a story to the website about the NBA coming back and he said that at one point staples center expressed interest in hosting the NBA's return with La live acting as the hub with hotel and dining options and direct access to the arena. But serious conversations never materialized. That would have been fun. Oh that would have been great amazing just games at Staples Center starting early in the morning and run all the way through the night and there's a secret tunnel that runs from La live to staple center. Yeah just you just went through that. Yeah and it boy. That would be awesome. I know that's the first I've heard of that. Do you guys ever heard that before. No not staples I heard. Houston was What they said initially they said there were multiple cities that were trying to submit. But they just kept mentioning. That Vegas in Orlando where the two Weiqi said. I'm just quoting coating Dan on a single location might be the preferred route for some though. There are other options under consideration. Secondary location could still happen with an NBA partner MGM resorts putting together a second spot or Houston is also reportedly being considered as a hosting site. So I it sounds like nothing is finalized but all these things are possible. Yeah it sounds like it's not officially vegas. It sounds like Disneyworld is for sure and Vegas may be less. Sure as as the second sight if they're talking about Houston boy. It would have been so fantastic for it to be at Staples Center. I don't know why they wouldn't consider that pre preference wise. Don't you think all the players would want me? There's one see the difference under different circumstances not like to go enjoy. La like they would if everything was open but a lot of the players also. If I'm right John. Lott these players live in L. A. Too. I mean there's a ton of them in that Manhattan area just coastal in general but. That would have been amazing. Here's another story that I may want to react to this saints announced earlier this week that they're looking for a new naming rights partner and Cata. What's currently known as the Mercedes Benz Superdome? Yes starting next year The VP communications. For the Saints Greg Benzel said in a statement that they're looking for a partner to represent our city state region as a leader to better our community and to bring positive change shore region our city and state. So everybody knows that. New Orleans is a city that has struggled economically. Yep a company has offered fifteen million to rename the saints home calf. That company is stripped chat. Oh come on. Which builds itself is one of the world's leading adult. Webcam sites but they're willing to pony up fifteen million. Let's say for the sake of discussion that nobody else even offers ten. But stripped chat is offering fifteen million Cam. The saints consider stripped chat. That can you think they can't make no circumstance whatsoever. I may let me make the argument for him. The Strip cat the Strip chat communications director. A guy named Max Bennett said in a news release. In our opinion New Orleans is the party capital of the United States. I'd like to think that we hear it strip chat embody some of New Orleans character and flair as one of the world's leading adult Webcam sites that averages over sixty million visitors per month we know a thing or two about having a good time Absolutely not by the way we're Sadi's was paying ten million a year so this is five million more. But they're offering fifteen million a year for how long nights Genius Marketing Right mace-like I think a lot of times. They just throw this out there and I never heard about it before. And now all of a sudden he may say the term it says announced a fifteen million dollar offer to rename it as the Strip. 'cause like so-fi paid four hundred million dollars over twenty years is strip chat ready to pony up that level of we we're in market to. New Orleans is like market thirty to vegas. They named what's Raider stadiums. Allegiant your allegiance stadium. I mean if there's any place in Vegas I mean what's Vegas non for. They still found corporate five hundred company in Vegas. They're paying twenty five million per year elite strict chat strip chat superdome. That is that is just remind way if this is Alan suggested if this is just a marketing ploy by brought up the number two market world. It's super smart. Yeah Yeah you. Did you know that Mike? Tyson is supposedly INDIGO. She or maybe even already has bought the naming rights to the of the stadiums in Barcelona where the soccer stadiums for cannabis companies called Swiss x were. Here's the thing if you you don't know it was company by the title stripped chat. You know exactly what it is but Mike. Tyson said that he wanted to name it. Instead of Swiss ex new camp it would be Camp Nou Blake. You gotta try that. He wanted to go with but case. What if porn hub came in with with the highest rate bio the porn hub superdome? No you can't bring your kids to a state. Twenty five million to go to the porn have superior to enough awkward questions. I'd been you and I have been to New Orleans. That whole town is drunk. This porn hub. Superdome completely work part of tried to buy the naming rights for the stadium on the Miami Heat built a new one. That's right that was another one. I'm starting to wonder if any of these porn sites are really serious. They're just throwing it out there to get free coverage like this is doing. I know I I think that's the correct answer by the way. Can't we get Mike Tyson on the show? He and I have so much in common. That four twenty every day. Yeah let's have them on Sunday at four twenty. Can't you get Mike Tyson? He's he's got Tyson ranch where he's grown weed. I'm working on. Publicist is a big fan of guy. Since one of our other times with recently on our show so we're working on. Hey let me let me also say this naming rights. I made this speech for many years. You have to get on the ground floor with naming rights for example we're going to call Staples Center Staples Center even if staples bails out now. When I do the LAKER Games the Lakers will instruct me to call it. Whoever BUYS THE NAMING RIGHTS? But you guys don't have a responsibility are not paid by the Lakers. To do it will always refer to it as staples center. Won't you like Mace? Where did the niners play four? They moved to San Jose candlestick park. Right you know. They've changed like m. but the rights to that to candlestick park and nobody ever called it. Three M Park. It makes no sense. You have to get the naming rights for the I if it's very true like like I don't people that still where the ducks play the. They call it the pond. The pond right. It's been the Honda Center for like fifteen years. So look this is this is interesting on is San Diego County credit. It's one of those qualities. When were there wheel called Jack? Marin right Ag says there they have a lifetime naming rights deal for staple center the chain promises to pay almost one twenty million dollars to put its name on top of staples for twenty years. When would twenty years be? It's happening now now. It opened in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine so I don't know if they've renewed their deal but if they haven't like yeah. They bought lifetime naming rights. Let's say that like So-fi we're going to call that stadium. So-fi gives it up in five years and somebody else takes the naming rights most are already know it is so fi. Yeah yeah somebody maybe most of these naming right deals though are for like twenty years right. But here's an example like United Airlines. I think bought naming rights for the coliseum but nobody calls it anything but the college well no but it's United Airlines field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Mace. I didn't even know that right but every time somebody in the middle of the country watches a game that's being held at the Coliseum. United Airlines will get an impression. What's known as an impression right? They'll get that every single time. You can't put a naming right on the coliseum because it's so a store but you can't do United Airlines field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and that's what every announcer when they introduced the game's going to say that's what all the impressions are going to be when people watch stuff on TV it has value. Then you're thinking well but our impressions on the as good as as as the person remembers like for example. I didn't know that and I've watched made fifty games at the Coliseum. Since united made that deal mace the play on Ireland's point dignity health. I think a lot of people still call it home depot riots and and I think what John is saying is there is this Kerryon because they were the first that because they got into the ground floor you typically still refer it to the original name so yes. A new partner. Advertiser comes in. But it's true. John. A lot of these. I mean I think the first and correct me. If I'm wrong John you might. You might know better on this than I do. One of the first naming rights deal if not the first naming rights deal was at the Great Western form. Great Western was the bank. Sure that places the forum. Yeah I just referred to as a form to By the way John the other thing United Airlines is paying for is they're paying for the exposure for the twenty twenty eight Olympics. So that's a that's a worldwide brand everybody who's GonNa see United Airlines field or United Airlines stadium when they watched the Olympics around the world. So that's what that's what they're paying for more than more than anything probably allies. I always think when they name the field or the court that it doesn't work like for example. Do you know. Ucla plays their home games. Where Alan Basketball Pavilion right? Do you knew the courts named after John. Wooden right it's John and Nell wooden court but everybody refers to their homes. Pauley pavilion I look. I think there's you WanNa be the first one in. I mean is going to be there for twenty years Staples has got a lifetime deal now to be the naming rights for the building that AG owns In downtown Los Angeles Some of them are less prominent places so the pond will I mean. Sometimes I guess I do call it the hundred center but mostly it's the pond. Angel Stadium was briefly. Edison field the now back to angel. Stadium Right stub became allegiant. A field. Right allegiant no where the radio city health. Yeah so I'm help and Banca California stadium. I think will always call that the band right because they got in the ground floor right right so the second one. It doesn't get nearly the value right so whoever whoever from staples cut the deal to be the initial ten? An unstable center was a genius. Because that's that's GONNA be staple center forever. Yup All right so can i? Can I ask you question? I don't know sure? Yeah Please Allen. Ask Away ask Ole Miss What. What do you think this this whole? Nfl thing where they're incentivizing teams. Higher minority candidates is. That is that one of the most disrespectful things to do that way. They gave it up but no. I don't think it's disrespectful. You don't think you didn't think Alan. Why is it disrespectful if a player for minority if there's only four minority coaches in the NFL right so hypothetically speaking if a minority? If an African American Guy Head. Coaching job or he got a general manager role. I think a lot of people are going to look at not. He got it for his merit. He got it because they incentivize the teams that bothers me. How's that different? Though Alan from the years of affirmative action that were required in order to get universities to ten more minority candidates. Okay and Alan by the way. Also answer this if you change what? You're what the Rooney rule is now. What's your plan to get more minorities hired because what you're doing now is in working what. Dungy said I think is perfect. Dungy said that. They know they have to do something. This just isn't the best thing to do that. His right. Yeah but what is your his or anybody else's suggestion you can. You can continue to say. This isn't a solution but that they've tried everything. These these owners these old stodgy white owners will not offer these jobs for minorities. I actually think mace that. This may have been in ingenious play by the NFL offices to say to. Just start the discussion to say look. We're trying we're GONNA put something absurd out there so so you people realize that this this is a real problem and we have to deal with it but but it doesn't work out but Allen. The problem with your position is it doesn't fix the problem. You can put it this way. Did you ever problem with affirmative? Of course that's exactly what we're what did you say. Course you did not no no listen listen let me let me go back to one. St Year Tony Dungy or Anthony Lynn. Okay African Americans in the lead. Tony Dungy want a Obviously want a super bowl if they had come out and they had if they didn't bother Dan let's just say hypic hypothetically as long as we're getting closer to the right solution that it makes sense. I'm looking at it as I just don't it doesn't it doesn't leave a good taste in my mouth that they're incentivizing. I want that coach that African American coach we all know metoo calms did a study. I think back in two thousand and sixteen or she did a research after that two thousand sixteen professors from George Washington our readers July position coaches in assisting fell on more than twice as likely to be promoted to a- coordinator than their black counterparts regardless of their performance experience or poking around. So and. So how do you fix that. So what's your what's your solution to address it by the way you're one hundred percent right if I have a solution if I'm going to have an opinion on something I should have a solution that part. I don't disagree with that all well. The other thing is I don't think that is the solution right. But you don't have one when Mason ask you about affirmative action. Your first response. Was You have a problem with it? I don't I you know I mean. There was a time when affirmative action was necessary. And by the way I'll give you an example. I went to UCLA UCLA now because they will give you. I'll give you give me an example. Ucla right now it. It does not allow you to be wreck. You're not even allowed to put it on a form. What your nationality is okay. It's strictly based on grades. That's it so the end result is the only African American students at UCLA. Are The guys on the sports teams? It's less than five percent of the school when I was at Ucla because they allow different things. You got a full college experience. I wanted to go to college with people that were black and Mexican and Asian and white. I wanted a full colleges should prepare you for the rest of the world when you get out in the world. Everybody's not all white right now. Ucla's pretty close to all white. I would welcome them a chance to go back to those days. Were so afraid of offending people. And you're the wouldn't you brought this up. You said this is so offensive. Okay maybe it is but it's not. It's not a fake problem. The problem needs to be addressed. There are no black coaches in this league and they're not being given opportunities there. Would you eighty percent black right? But that's the whole point like I'm not disagreeing. There needs to be more African American minority coaches for general managers. That's not the point. I'm making so. I hope that the Rooney rule working. Apparently it's not right. Correct twenty take out. Apparently three of the last twenty head coaches in the NFL have been white. And how is that possible to link? That's eighty percent black and Alan part of the problem. Is that some of these coaches. When they get an opportunity they get blown out after a year. Like Todd Bowles did Downing Downing Arizona. They gave him that trump. For when you're in and who was the guy or was it balls. It was with the jets. The Guy with the guy with Arizona. Steve wilks Steve wilks and todd. Bowles both got one year and one year and they'll probably never get another head coaching job. Some of these other guys like when Adam gays got blown out he got another job right away and did you guys and you guys heard you guys heard what Angelina and set right coach. The chargers you did you hear it. Just it's all just a small piece off of it and this is what These are the main things that stand out to see if he is saying he said. Sometimes you've been do the wrong thing while trying to do the right thing continues a. It's out of desperation. You're right and they won't have a solution so they're obviously looking for a solution. If Anthony Lynn or Tony Dungy if I felt their comments. Were meant what we're we're on our way to something here. This sounds good. I would feel good about it. I'm just I'm obviously not African American American. I can't relate to it but I can look at the numbers like you are makes you mentioned. Eighty percent of the League is African American. But it's such a small percentage that are represented in a GM role for a head coaching role. It is an issue when I say that incentivize. I see what you guys are saying about well. At least they're putting more coaches in there like it if you get if you move up six picks in the draft ten picks because you hired an African American general manager african-american coach. I'm assuming the way you two are looking at it saying wall. At least you have more African American coaches more African American. Gm's is out the way you guys looking at it. Yes now. I'm not in favor of this particular plan. I think some variation of this plan could conceivably work. I ever serious start this conversation that we're having right now. I think there should be a plan to incentivize franchises to invest in minority hiring. It's I honestly you can interview as many people. I think the now you have to interview at least one minority candidate when you have a general manager opening and you have to these the new rules and you have to interview at least two minority candidates when hiring a head coach. I don't think that's GONNA change anything. I I think that's just cursory. I don't think that's going to change anything. I don't think you you've substantially changed the structure that prevents african-americans from elevating themselves to head coaching positions and general managers in the NFL to me. That's just that's just a lip service. That's in part of the two guys in. This is a broader discussion. But if you look at the guys that are getting promoted a lot of times it's offensive. Coordinators or quarterback coaches and very few minorities are in those jobs. So if you WANNA take a broader. Look at that you say okay. Let's identify some guys that could be quarterback coaches or offensive coordinators and put them in the pipeline and act like there are two guys now. Byron left which and Eric the enemy or the two guys that are offensive coordinator's right now who are African American right. So if if one of those guys doesn't get a job so it's just it's it's there's all guys hiring people that look like them. Yeah yeah or in the case of the RAMS. It's young white guys hiring people that look like them. Yeah all right coming up next. Alan Sleep is going to read something.

I n last the podcast. Wild football game last night Seattle. Green Bay Packers. Seattle seahawks. Pretty entertaining back. Do people listening on the west coast? Right. I'll probably just now. Get the bed after celebrating that one up in Seattle. Lots of talk about their allot to talk about throughout the show. Whether it be that football game, Carmelo Anthony the turmoil with the warriors college football and Oliver getting into an argument with major Applewhite on the sideline over at jacket. I mean, we got a lot to do on this Friday morning. Good morning to you. I'm Craig Sheba for Mike Golic junior. This is first last on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. ESPN radio's presented by progressive insurance. With more than thirty unique coverage options available progressive knows small business. Learn more at progressivecommercial dot com also all callers throughout the day. They morning will appear on the shell Pennzoil performance line. And you can tweet the show using. The one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed. Go ahead and follow me atrophied. If you follow me today. I'll follow you back. I'm in that kind of mood. So follow me at Craig ESPN. And for the morning is over with. I will follow you back. That's at Craig ESPN. We could be friends on Twitter. All right. We're friends here on the radio to thanks to and again here on this early Friday morning. Let's get it last night that football game. Strange start for Seattle those Seattle and the Packers kind of season on the brink. Right. You lose this game. And you have a really really big hole to dig out of. So the Seattle Seahawks. Come back and win this thing. Twenty seven to twenty four even up their record five of five Packers fall to a four five one whole all sorts of reaction back Packers actually look good early on. Seattle's a mess yellow had a turnover early on four full starts in the first half in a home game. When the crowd is supposed to be quiet when the teams on all of us that's inexcusable. On her off. And he just couldn't get out of their own way and fell into a fourteen three hole, but they came back. It was entertaining ballgame in the second half and the ended up with Russell Wilson funding. Ed Dixon with fifteen yard touchdown play late in the game. Here's the call seven ten ESPN Seattle Davis was single attack from the shotgun with three out. Outfall the snap. Back on. Really play. So both of these even though the the Packers are kind of. Whoa. Is me right now. I as both teams are playing a lot better football. Both teams got off to really bad starts this year. We all remember with the Packers. They had that that close game. Which Aaron Rodgers got hurt and beat the bears early on turned out to be that. That's a real quality win bears are better than expected, then they tied Minnesota, then they lose to Washington they'd be buffalo. But almost everybody beats buffalo. They lose to Detroit where Crosby couldn't kick the side of a barn. Missed all those fields so sensitive been playing well and putting up a lot of points pensively, but they have to put up a lot of points given up a lot. But but anyway, the offense the last five games put up twenty four thirty one the seventeen twenty seven to thirty three point. I'm going to put points on the board. And then on the other side, you got Seattle which started on at the dreaded into with Denver and Chicago, then they went to the next three. Three. And then some wins against Oakland in Detroit. Now, they're even back up at five and five but early in the season. Russell Wilson was scrambling getting killed back there. They'll live was terrible. But they look a lot better right now. This is very interesting turnaround for the Seattle Seahawks afterward Carol their head coach said, hey, Thursday night was kind of a wild ride. Well, it's kind of loud Thursday night. Really really happy about this win for guys for all of us twelve that we're waiting for us. And we took us a long time to get going the first half just didn't play well at all. But it does show you that that you know, that doesn't decide the game guys went into halftime adjustments that he put some stuff together to turn the game around really stops Kip getting and just played it entirely different football force. And it was just a great turnaround. Russell Wilson was key place. Twenty one thirty one hundred twenty two touchdowns. No pixie was sacked three times in the game. Couple of passes sailed on early on and carols trying to coach them up a little bit. Here was his reaction. Russell just kinda just need to find his rhythm a little bit. I think he's fired up. You know, I think he was pumped up. You throw a couple balls over the top guys that generally it's and it came back and found did a great job. I said some Tony says I'm gonna be all right? I'm going to be all right, which he was exactly right to shut up coach really what he said. But he didn't P Carrollton it players coach Aaron Rodgers for his work on that. I twenty one of thirty three hundred thirty two yards two touchdown sex five times moving around there and being chased throughout the night. Now, they said early on they sit there at four five and one digging themselves in a hole and he was asked by reporter yesterday after the game. If there's any hope left. Hope left for the season. We're kind of questions. Can't win on the road. What what are you going to be able to do? I don't even know how to incident supposed to say. Of course. Of course, we believe in each other just gonna take one galvanizing moment. So whether that's a speech practice or some of the game. Got to get this thing going. I thought I thought we had moments tonight where that was the way we're going, you know, the defense injuries offensively. We lost to me guys battled. So nobody gave up. You know, we just didn't play well enough and we end to play well enough. So are galvanizing moments real. I mean, does it does one speech really turn a season around is one play really turned the season around perhaps reminded of a few years back when the Packers got off to a slow start in Aaron Rodgers told everybody to relax, and I believe they made the playoffs that year. Maybe maybe that was it the speech the were bowl it down to one galvanizing word, relax, maybe something like that needs to happen here. But at the end of the day Aaron Rodgers not having any fun just watching, you know, except for the play here, and there with that goes, well, you, you know, you celebrate or whatever. But a lot of times the season. Like, you're having as much fun as I remember watching in the past that feel that way to you. What do you what do you think might be on Winning's about of fun? We haven't too many back to back wins and one on the road yet. So that part's fun. My teammates. I love to beaten. But losing it's not fun. Now, I wanna get to another important part that may be under reported throughout the day today at a lot of the country in the eastern half of the country may have missed this. Because the game was late people have jobs got to go to sleep. Sometimes people will stay up and watch these prime time games to the end Seattle had just gone ahead. Twenty seven twenty four and there was a scenario of fourth into for the Packers with the ball four twenty to go and a time out left and Mike McCarthy opted to the ball away pundit to Seattle and the Packers never got their hands on the ball again. So basically Aaron Rodgers never got onto field again. And they try to rely on the Packer defense to stop Seattle. And the Packer defense has stopped much anything this year that is going to be a call that is questioned. It look like aired rush speaking of that sound bite, right? They're not looking like having fun. He didn't look too pleased at that decision. There have been numerous times over the past couple of years where you look at the relationship between like Carthy at Aaron Rodgers. And you kind of wonder gotta wonder, you know, air it is really happy with play caller. We know he hasn't been at sometimes he's made comments on it before. So did Mike McCarthy make the wrong call? They're probably probably put the game in the hands of his defensive couldn't stop Seattle, and they never got it. So there's two games on the west coast that the Packers have lost that they were in that they could have one there's this game keep the ball and Aaron Rodgers hands take your chances. See what can happen? There was the game two weeks prior against the Rams where all they had to do was taking knee on a kickoff in Aaron Rodgers gets about twenty five except that never happened member. They ran the ball out and fumbled it away Aaron Rodgers again another game end situation where he never got on the field. There's two games, right? You're sitting at four five and one I'm not real good at math. But that could be six three and one then they're looking a lot better. Aren't they? I mean, let's face it. Aaron Rodgers is among the best ever in the final two minutes of the game. I mean, he's a walking hail Mary. If you don't even give him the ball. You never get a chance, you never know. So it could cost them decisions. Like that can cost you the season could cost you the post-season, Freddie, Coleman from Freddie and Fitz. Simons on ESPN radio says at the Packers missed the playoffs could be guns over Mike McCarthy if this Packers team does not make the playoff. I can't see Green Bay bringing him back. You have to wonder it. Manage was going to say this is not working anymore, and we're not getting rid of that guy. No. We're not getting rid of the quarterback that coach is going to have to go. Freddie. Komen also continue to elaborate on something that I just talked about a moment ago at Mike McCarthy and his decision on the fourth into who's really trusting the defense or Aaron Rodgers with four minutes to go. The look on Aaron Rogers face walking field spoke volumes as he said, you've got to be kidding. You're gonna trust out defense. Over me. There's not one person on this football team. You should trust over me fourth in eight. I get it. What the five I might get it forth into. And your dude is Aaron Rodgers that made. Absolutely, no sense. What did you have to lose? As it turns out the football game. Fact agree with Freddie hundred percent of that one. And that's what people are going to be talking about today. Get happen real late last night and a game. Maybe a lot of people didn't know about it. But that's going to be a discussion point that's going to be. Snowballing through out the rest of the day Packers next at Minnesota a division rival and the Seahawks at Carolina Panthers. First and last podcast. So I could tell you that the rockets and the warriors possibly possibly the two best teams in the Western Conference played each other last night. I could tell you that the rockets one what oh seven eighty six. But that's not the interesting part. That's not. It's everything that's going on off the court between these teams that is the most amazing part about. I'm Craig Sheba for Mike Golic Jodie here on I last on ESPN radio and the ESPN. Hey, celebrate fall birthdays and anniversaries with multicolored roses from what eight hundred flowers dot com right now. One eight hundred flowers is offering a Boca of twenty four multicolored roses for just twenty four bucks to order. Twenty four multicolored roses for twenty four dollars. Go to one eight hundred flowers dot com slash. E S P N. All right. So let's get into this. Yeah. There was a game last night. Yeah. It could be a preview of the Western Conference finals or a postscript from last year's Western Conference final Soviet. Both teams making a lot of news in the past twenty four to thirty six hours off the basketball court. Let's start with the rockets Carmelo Anthony it was announced after being out the last several games in limbo. He was sick, quote, unquote. Now with team whatever the deal was. He's going to be going. He's not gone yet. Technically, he's still on the roster. But he's been informed. He does not fit the rockets plans. Now, here's the deal because he was a summertime acquisition. They actually cannot trade him to December fifteenth. So they could wave another team could pick them up, and it's two point four million dollar veteran. Minimum salary, whatever. The case may be come L. Anthony is not going to be missing anymore. Three pointers for the Houston Rockets. So that's a done deal. He's gone. Just a little sidebar here. Why how much gentlemen in the NBA make five mil somebody? I'd like the standard going rate because I think I could be gentleman journey NBA. Piece of cake for one I could've told you that this move with Carmelo Anthony would not work. But the thing is I can't really claim credit for that. Because I think ninety nine point nine percent of all the other people in the United States said the same thing and yet Daryl Morey was insistent on bringing him in. And it's also amazing that guys like Chris Paul join Wade LeBron James all of Carmelo Anthony's buds they all because their buds. They all say good things about him, and he can still play. Clearly he cannot play in the NBA anymore. Unless he wants to accept the role coming off the bench for like ten minutes. Breaking some shots. That's about it. I told you I could've told their Lori this off season, why do the real emit? But now, I will say on the flip side. Not to pour all on Carmelo here. But you know, the loss of Trevor REEs Luca MBA Matei that that that. I think is what is really hurting the rockets here, but they did win last night. My dad, Tony said afterward that we've tried everything and Melo was professional throughout the whole deal. We hit a home run and didn't work out. And he tried everything. He could he was great here. And just didn't didn't work out for whatever reason, and you know, just thinking professional good, you know, he he tried. He went to the tried everything to make a work and just didn't work out. Dan, Tony did each did try to work it out. Remember, they had a bad past Dan, Tony was his coach in New York. When things go inside one of many coaches in New York as things went with south. So I was kinda surprised. He's open minded toward this experiment. The first place. So he's asked if you feel bad for Bill bad for him that he did do everything. Yeah. I mean, anytime you par- ways with the player that when things quite fit as the puzzle because it's a puzzle pieces are different for every puzzle. And in this one wasn't fitting together for whatever reason wasn't from lack of trying or lack of one on both sides. All right. So monitor average success with Denver. Let's see the Knicks disaster. Oklahoma City didn't work out. He was with the hawks for a minute right for the buyout Houston. Did. I forget anybody who else is left. What does the future hold for him? According to Adrian Welsh, no Ascii mellow has played his last game in Houston. The organization is parting ways within they will let him stay on the roster for now his agent is out trying to canvas the league get a sense of where his next stop could be the best play for mellow in. The short term is patients. Allowing roster situations develop around the league a lot of executives. I talked to believe at some point this share. He will find another team. All right now on the other side. We have the warriors what they're drama, and we don't green thought he'd take a game winning shot loss of ball over. Kevin durant? A superstar was unhappy like pre Madonna the heating get the ball spill over into the bench spilled over the locker room. Draymond green. Sits and things that he probably shouldn't have regarding Kevin Durant. Having one foot out the door and free agency. Yada, yada, yada. You're all caught up. They're not getting along. Kevin Durant in the press conference was asked about his relationship now which. Out here. Actually about the. Don't ask me about that. Again. I mean, come on could paint, a prima Donna, you know, the question Espy as we all saw an app in. About Draymond green for his react. He says been an emotional couple days around there on that. That. Lisa motion. That any impact on how group everybody played tonight. Think it's possible to say. Also, it's kind of impossible to say those just is what it is. We didn't play our best game. Those emotions I will cause us those snob. But. We're not panicking. Outta grade team. We sorta best league and we go win more games abutting games. And go in another championship. It would be fun. It'd be fun c katie's very sensitive Draymond green. He'll tell you. Tell the way it is. And last the podcast if you're a smoker. Switching isn't easy. You've tried vapes.

I know you got to kind of rear remind yourself. It's it's next week. It's here, and we have more details on how this broadcast is gonna go down. Hey, good morning to you. I'm creek Shimano for Mike Golic junior on I last year on ESPN radio and the ESPN app for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones. Best networks, no contracts. All right. Here's the deal. This match had been rumored for for years. People wanted. And it finally came to fruition here. But it has changed remember in the spring. I think back in may may or June. The news came out that we were gonna have this match. Tiger versus Phil. Now, originally, it was gonna be tiger versus Phil for a ten million dollar bet in the desert in Las Vegas, like the other guy was gonna whoever lost was going to have to take open up to get the crowbar out. Get the wallet out and pay the other guy ten million dollars that was that was juicy man. That was tantalizing. That's what I thought. This was going to be. And that's what all of us thought it was gonna be. And that's not what it is. And I've talked a lot of different people on this to try and get the exact details of it. So really, there's just this nine million dollar prize out there winner take all now, they may have some side bets on this on the side for you know, fifty thousand here or there L big pot or something like that I presume that would be out. They're all Bahgat, but I dunno sponsorship prize or whatever much providing nine million dollar prize. Now, it's still big deal. If somebody wins one Gulf outing in wins nine million dollars on the spot. That's that's still big deal. That's still exciting. That's not nearly as exciting as what this was originally billed to be that the other guy was going to have to pay the winner out of pocket ten million dollars. So that that's disappointment number one. Now, we have some other details here regarding this some of this is good. So this how the broadcast is going to go down to TNT events, Ernie Johnson, who you know, who doesn't outstanding job with the TNT NBA studio. Coverage gonna do the play by play for this thing. He's going to be joined by their and Clark the open championship winter two thousand eleven and also Peter Jacobsen from the golf channel and they're going to do like a three man booth and do the play by play and all that Shane Begum for Fox Sports and the fomer LPGA golfer. Natalie Gobas will be there as well. That'd be great. All right. So that's a Cording to Turner sports. They made the announcement yesterday. And if that's not enough before they t- off before what's Mickelson Samuel L Jackson and Charles Barkley and three-time PGA tour winner, Pat Perez will join Adam left co for like a pre-match show. That's cool. If there's one thing that Charles Barkley is good at is. He can he could form himself into whatever. He's doing. I've seen him show up on Stanley Cup. Final broadcast wing it and be entertaining. Jones. Barkley is always entertaining. He's always good TV. No question about he's great at what he does with the NBA. And I always laugh when they they ask them to do the NCAA where it's clear he's never watched a college basketball game in in his life. And he goes on there, and he's an analyst pretty good. It's pretty good. He could pull it off. So anything that Charles Barkley does. I'm I'm all in all right? I catch that. Here's the deal. Also when this thing was I put together, right? We assumed presumed. It would be just over the air TV it's not we knew a long time ago that this is going to be pay per view for the longest time. We didn't know how much it's going to be nineteen ninety nine and that's not news either that's been out for a little while earlier. I think they were kicking around a higher price. I don't know if it's forty nine ninety nine twenty nine ninety nine whatever they came up with nineteen ninety nine. My question to you is well, first and foremost number one, are you still interested in this golf match Gulf has lost its momentum? We haven't seen any golf since the Ryder Cup, and it's kinda outta sight outta mind. Tiger was the story all year. It was fun to watch. We had tiger competitive. On sundays. We had tiger went on a Sunday. So that part was good golf was great this summer. I watched it all sorted. Most of you Cording to the ratings Phil who was supposed to be Tigers arch nemesis and rival throughout the years. Never really panned out not a lot of head to head in their prime. So that that's what this is supposed to, but they're not in the prime. Now. I don't know. We're tigers. It's going to be a tiger is after this long delay where he has a play lot competitive golf, and certainly things we're looking at Phil. L- started out the year, pretty good. But he was horrible at the end. He was horrible at the end right through the Ryder Cup. And I know if that lens as much sexiness having studio now, they'll be entertaining Philo have personality, and then decide bits and all I get that. But my question to you is were you interested in this in the first place. But are you less interested now either because of the time to since we saw competitive go, or are you turned off by the pay per view? Are you one of these people that you know, you just feel nickel to die with everything whether p your current cable package your phone plan or this or that and now tiger and Phil who you're used to seeing for free. You're used to seeing over the airwaves you're used to seeing your cable package now you gotta pay for it. I'm curious. I'm curious if you will pay if that's a turnoff for you like to take some phone calls on that by the what? And I will be extra sense. If I know it's it's morning. It's Friday you're trying to get going and get to work. So get you on and get you off eight say ESPN that's one eight seven to nine three seven seven six eight say ESPN like to get some called kinda gauge the people of America coast to coast, the interest in this again, it's two fold because we've got a gap since we saw meaningful golf and does the nine hundred ninety nine tearing y'all or you think Craig is no big deals twenty bucks. You want to go. See it could be the case. I mean, there are some of you that we're used to paying for things in sports. I get it particularly boxing match a matches UCF, whatever the case might be that's part of the deal. But I also know a lot of people. That I've never paid per pair of you event. The you're always the one, you know, if my Buddy's paying for it. I'll go over there and see it or I'll go somewhere else and see it. You know that happens to something wrong with there's nothing wrong with that people are turned off by and large by pay per view. And I'm kind of curious if that has this affect here, they are not going to have any crowd. There are no tickets to this event. I think that's a missed opportunity as well. Because what's one of the greatest things in sports? Roar. It's the tiger. Roar right now, you put it in an informal atmosphere where everybody I'm fun. Maybe if you pops kind of like the tournament out Scottsdale every January. Gets rules might be something that would be and everybody loves Phil to. I mean, these are the two most popular golfers on tour. These are the two most popular golfers in person, put them all together. Get a live crowd in there. That'd be great. But it's not. I just wonder if it's gonna come off as a little sterile. Or tiger and Phil really gonna ham it up with the personalities because they are going to be miked. I'm really curious to see how this plays out really curious to see if this will be a success, and I'm really curious to see if you the people of America a willing to pay for this something that you use stick getting for free between these two I have a little extra something some to it because they're wired, and they might the mics are on. They might have subside bets I get all that is that worth nineteen ninety nine to you. Eight say ESPN that's eight seven to nine three seven seven six love hear from you on that topic here this morning. So this is going to go down on Friday. It's a week from today. It is here. And you could get it through Turner's live platform direct, TV AT and T U verse and others all that. So you can get it. It's going to be out there. No question about it. But a bit of a different form, and I'm going to leave this into my next conversation. Next segment is well. About what you are willing to pay for because I got some news for you those gonna come day. We have to pay for it all all going to be pay per view. Eight say ESPN, eight seventy nine three seven seven six go to the phones. Brian in Nebraska. Welcome to the show. How are you? Welcome to ESPN radio. Are you? I am good. Call this morning. So what do you care about this at all in the first place whatsoever? I love I love to play golf Nebraska. We care about the huskers. We care about either the Broncos of the we we don't have a professional team in our state. But yeah, we go, but I'm guaranteeing seven out of ten guys. Can't stand watching golf on TV. Ruin our culture here. And then been Nebraska at least. Okay. So even on a Sunday afternoon. When Tigers leeann major that has no interest whatsoever. I rather be out. Clays or something else? Wow. I would tell you. And I appreciate your opinion. I think it'd be in the minority of sports fans though. I'm willing to accept that. Yeah. All right. So you don't have this isn't moving your needle at all. No matter what. And so they're definitely not going to let me ask you one other question. Do you or have you ever paid for an event boxing match? Anything like anything like that in the past have you ever paid for sporting event? Wartime paid for a UFC my favorite fire. Check Ladele biting. But that was. And years ago. Yeah. Okay. Would you be will do you like sports general football basketball baseball? I love you. Would you be willing to pay for those sports that you do like that you used to getting for free? You know, but interbred cordo skiers I probably will. Okay. All right. Thanks for sent me up for the next topic. Bryant pre phone call have a great day out there in Nebraska, first and last podcast, try let's go we got the weekend here. And a crazy star two week eleven in the National Football League. Packers and Seahawks last night Thursday night. Good slate of games throughout the weekend. Monday was supposed to be in Mexico City. Now, it's not now in Los Angeles. Couple of nine to one teams going head to head and apparently Patrick Mahomes lights catch up on everything. That weird, but we'll get to that. Just a second little teaser. I'm Greg driven ever. Mike Golic junior here on first and last on ESPN radio and the ESPN at ESPN's presented by progressive insurance. I'll call appear on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Now, forget you could send us a tweet at the show at one eight hundred flowers dot com onto Twitter feed. And in fact, go ahead fell me on Twitter at Craig ESPN. And I'll follow you back today. Feeling like doing it. Suspend the holidays around the corner. Yeah. Follow me on Twitter at Craig ESPN. And I will follow you back. Speaking of the holidays next Friday, which I will be here in this seat next Friday as well. Next Friday is black Friday, right? But apparently, you can get a jump even on that. Amazon's black Friday sale is on now. That's right deals in every department low prices free shipping on millions of items shop now at Amazon that get a jump on the jump. All right. We're gonna get into this more at the bottom of the hour. But the Packers blue Aleve Seahawks. Win last night twenty seven to twenty four a lot of questions about the Packers start to feel good story and Seattle to turn their season around. We'll get it all that. As I mentioned Monday night's game between the Rams and the chiefs is supposed to be a Mexico City part of the NFL's. Plan to go global. We got all the games in London. We throw in one in Mexico City every once in a while. But the field was horrible didn't work out it on Tuesday. We found out that the NFL six that plan. Got move it to loss of back to Los Angeles. It was a Rams home game. Anyway, technically and play in the Coliseum. Sean mcveigh. I know this thing came down Tuesday. But the coaches started speaking to the media yesterday about it the finally media finally had access to them. So Sean McVay head coach of the Rams talked about the changing of the venues. Yeah. You know, we were excited about the opportunity to play in Mexico City. But I think it's a great demonstration of the league's consideration for players. You know, when you when you talk about all the efforts that are being made to take care of them to put them in safe atmospheres and environments, if you're talking about putting them on a on a field that could potentially put them at risk. This is clearly the right thing to do. And I think the players feel appreciated about that. And it's something we feel good about and more certainly not gonna complain about getting chance to play at the Coliseum in front of a great atmosphere on Monday. Now, Sean McVeigh is known for his offense. And he's got this offense with the Rams clicking. He has now for the last season and a half. No question about it city money even steal a couple of place from another guy that's known for his offense. Andy Reid in the chiefs, stick listen. Oh for sure. Yeah. I think you know, like you've heard me say before miles really are coaching staff is a whole fan of the game. And there's so much good tape and with the ability to easily access it week in week out. It'd be silly for us not to be able to look and see what the heck they're doing and every single week. They do something. He's pretty good. You know, and guys are making great plays. And I'd be lying. If I said, we haven't stolen some of their stuff this year. So they do a great job. You'll have to wait and see. Flattery man copycat league. Meanwhile, Andy Reid, the head coach also talked to the media yesterday about now not playing in Mexico City. You know, we we look forward to that as a whole NFL. Did I think just enter fan? So otherwise, we're gonna travel there. So great people. And we'll be back. I know the National Football League will be back. I just. Might say care about, you know, her neighbors, so probably not much of a distraction to move the game within a week of the game eighty Reitox about the changing venues, not really a big deal at this point. We ain't got that far. Really? Right. So. But the extra day with a Monday night game. And we were gonna pro flaked we normally do, but we we really never even got to that to that point players are a little bit resilient. I mean, they're gonna just coaches we just kind of wherever you put us we're gonna we're gonna go and do it do. So you kind of prepare for for the team. So that's what we spend our time doing. Yeah. Well, Dan, it's a road game. Anyway, whether the travel to Mexico City or Los Angeles still road game. As far as Patrick Mahomes quarterback of the chiefs. He's lighting the NFL on fire were all CNN. This would have been an opportunity for fans in Mexico City to see him in person. Maybe some other time he talked to the media about not playing in Mexico. It's disappointing for sure just because I'll just seeing that environment and seeing the fan base and how excited they were for the game. And you wanted to get out there and be in front of all those people and be able to show them the American football and everything that we're doing here, but we're still going to be excited to play on Monday night in LA, and that'll be another great environment for us to get to go out and play against a really good team. One other per to Patrick Mahomes big year this year's you might be get some more endorsement deals one could be from Heinz fifty seven and catch up and steak sauce or who knows? But he started talking about what he puts catch upon and then Heinsohn. Well, you know, don't for Heinz fifty seven fifty seven on the bottle tell you what you throw fifty seven touchdown passes. This year will. A hook you up for life, Patrick Mahomes. So talking about what he puts catch upon. I don't think it's that weird. But I put it on macaroni and cheese. But people seem to think that's a weird thing. Some people think that's disgusting. Good to mean. Not really do Saudi Hinds. I do I do it. All. My favorite probably is the Waterberg catch up on this, Texas, people know that. I've known people to put catch up on scrambled eggs. I did that when I was younger. I don't do it. Now like good scrambling by sell. Let's see catch up a macaroni and cheese. Ruined the cheesy part. Let's see what about people will put catch on a steak or steak sauce or something. You know, they say if the steak is done, right. You don't need any sauce or catch up for that matter. All right. So chiefs in Rams both night and one Monday Night Fever at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Other games of note this weekend to me anyway, keep an eye ravens rookie quarterback. Lamar jackson. He may get his first start. You'll be ready. If needed didn't practice yesterday and a bit of a stomach issue. So it was RG three taken snatch. Joe flacco got a bad hip. It's looking more and more like he's not going to play. So we'll keep an eye on that. Vikings and bears. Vikings of five three and one bears at six and three dalvin cook full workload come back from a hamstring injury. Looks like he will be good to go in this game. Eagles and saints eagles at four and five saints at eight one saints look like the cream of the crop now in the NFC don't they equals. Don't even though the defending Super Bowl champions of four and five check vis out at four their remaining opponents the rest of their schedule. Forty one and twenty three combined record six forty one winning percentage easily the highest in the league. No other teams remaining opponents combined winning percentage over six zero zero. They have the toughest schedule left in the NFL. I read yesterday. The patriots have like the second easiest just watering chiefs in Rams we're talking about that one. Of course, we're ready to go on Monday. And it could be a Super Bowl preview. Who knows let's see what else we have the caught my eye from this weekend. Oh, this bad for you guys. Motown right things aren't going well for Matt Patricia there and his first year, you know, the years started out where some players were complaining that he ran them too much in practice and maybe the locker room was divided before the season started. Then they go into the jets game on Monday night and get blown out look like they were rebounding a little bit. But now they're falling to the wayside now. Apparently, this colts doubt the most of the country is experiencing right now. There was a little bit of snow falling and in the mid thirties and yesterday map Patricia decided to have practice outdoors. Players did not like it. And they were vocal about it. You guys like they're your slate said look man, we play indoors the rest of our Ponant s- are indoors Sunday at home against Carolina Thanksgiving Day and home against Chicago. They play the Rams December first then they traveled to Arizona. Before they play at buffalo. December sixteenth the lines going, wait a minute. We got an outside game in buffalo in a month. Why are we practicing outside? I tell you a lot of complaining going on around there for tina's. That's not very good. They ought to pipe down. And just do whatever the coach wants now. Listen, there are people that say that Patricia hasn't really found his way as head coach yet. And he's rebelled people the wrong way. I kinda like it. He's like, look we got an opportunity. It's snowing today I wanna practice it outside. Maybe it'll benefit us a month from out. Maybe it won't. I don't know. But if I were the lines down a little bit. I think these players that start complaining after not having very good results gonna find themselves being shipped out and not there anymore. Maybe looking for a job. Josh Norman, remember what he said was about a week ago. He complained about Redskins fan says Redskin fans better on the road. But at home, and they get booed. Everything says, it's the lack of a home field advantage complaining about that. That's not a way to make friends, but. Norman he he went to the Redskins any purchase fifty tickets for Sunday's game against Texans. And he plans to hand out to fans at various spots near the training facility a little goodwill. That's good move. Good move. And Jalen Ramsey with mixed signals this week for the Jaguars. Remember, he was the one that ran his mouth and the G Q magazine article ripping all the quarterbacks rip it some of the receivers and telling everybody how Grady was then the Jaguars started losing several games in a row, and he had a pipe down. Right. And then there was the tweet. Hey, y'all got miss me when I'm out of here. Where you going doesn't to be there anymore. Well, he had to answer to that. Too says well, I wanna play for one team my career. So I guess he's staying we'll bless Jacksonville with his presence. There you have it. Quick preview of what's coming on around the NFL.

Mason and Ireland HOUR TWO

"You know, we were saying yesterday the Vegas has the dodgers as the favorites to win the most games in the National League with ninety five released their futures. Yeah. They released their futures. No other teams how many teams are ahead of the dodgers. Can I guess? Yeah. I'm gonna say the Astros are ahead of the Dodd the Astros are number one at ninety seven point five. And I'm going to say the Red Sox are ahead of the dog. The Red Sox are third with ninety five point five. So who am I missing? Kind of it's an obvious one. This Aster they were in the playoffs last year. Can't be Milwaukee the Yankees, it's the Yankees yet ninety six point five. So it goes Astros nineties without gregorious. Yeah. Astros ninety seven point five Yankees ninety six five Boston ninety five five and the dodgers ninety five then you have to go. It goes Cleveland ninety one five and then the cubs eighty nine. So those are the over under numbers, according to Caesar's, you have the whole listen for new. I do. Okay. Are the angels even above five hundred let me let me guess I'm going to see the angels are like barely above five hundred eighty two eighty three. They are. You're very good. At this game. They are eighty three point five eighty three point five yet because they're in the same division as the Astros. The Astros are just a wrecking crew. Are these the worst team in the National League West the giants worst team in the National League? West the D bag. Seventy three. Diamondbacks are seventy seven. So the giants are the worst ones. Yep. They are the worst. By the way, I'm looking at the the pop quiz here for fifth row Fridays. Tarred it's tough. It's the hardest one. I think we've ever had. Yeah. So okay. So you'll like this story. Janice Garcia who runs? A lot of our promotion stuff. She's fantastic. When my favorite. We love Janice. Janice, always brings the fifth row. Friday winners over to meet, Michael. And I right. And they are they're so I've met every one of them they they like they're so happy to be there. They think it's a coolest thing in the world. Except this last one the guy who won who is a super. He was like a huge listener to the show didn't even need to take notes. And I guess I wasn't there this day. He was the first one you guys took and he just rattled off all five because he listens to this show so closely so he brought his sister. And this is the first time I've ever seen this app. His sister knew nothing about the show zero. Yeah. Like, he goes, this is John. And she goes, wait a minute. Who are you? And I go, I'm John. I'm one of the guys that he won the tickets from. She goes, I don't understand. I said I do a radio show. Your brother listens to it. Anyone these tickets, and she goes, he listens to you. You talk on the radio. I said, yes, I he'd listened to my show. This girl. Janice works with me. That's what that's why you're here. It just went right overhead. She goes. Oh, this is really fun. But I had no idea probably got these. Yes, she sounded very impressed by the whole she's really tractive down. And it was funny. He he just he brought his cute sister to the game. And she was just taking it all in. She had no idea what he SPN LA was. And I don't think has ever heard our show. God bless her. Yep. That's hey, it just goes to show you, you know, somebody might be dating the head of Google one day. Sure. It's true. You're listening to Caspian Los Angeles, by the way, notice you you might notice if you're flipping around. This is the only station that's actually doing show right now. Everybody else is running commercials purpose. Yeah. That's on purpose. So the dodgers have traded Ronnie brio and Andrew Sopko. Have you ever heard of, you know, one of those people be honest. Nope. They traded them to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for Russell Martin. No. Yeah. Russell reorienting. Yeah. Cool. Okay. So maze. Could Russell Martin be the everyday catcher his age. Well, he's let's see he's thirty Russell Martin started with the dodgers and was an excellent young player for the dodgers for for years. He was he was really really good. No. I I mean, here's listened to his batting averages. The last four years to forty two thirty one to twenty one one ninety four I still considered a good defensive catcher. I don't really know the answer that is he he's considered a good framer and way and part of it is that he is on base percentage. Those last four years you were talking about is three twenty nine three thirty five three forty three thirty s there's gotta DC some based Greg if they if they can't get any like, they don't trade for real Muto. They they don't sign any of these vegtable catchers could they live with batting Martin eighth and letting him catch five days a week. Well, he's probably going to be backing Austin Barnes. According to Ken Rosenthal. He says that Boston Barnes has been working with the hitting coach. In the hitting coach is really gotten them either really happy with what they're seeing from him. So it's it's more of a stopgap for Will Smith stopgap for either Hebrew is. And that Austin Barnes is going to be the starter. And he's just back. Right. They got two guys. John and Diego cartography Burt Rohe's and Will Smith who are coming really fast. So I don't think they're looking at down the pipeline. They're just not ready to play in the Will Smith got to triple a keyboard. Ruis actually had a great spring and then played a AA this year. But those are the guys the catchers of the future. That's why I think they've you Russell Martin in Austin Barnes's possibly a stopgap unless one of those guys breaks out in the spring one of those guys could break out during the spring. So I think that's probably it for the JT room Muto talk. They can they can just walk away from that now. And that really hurts the hurts the Marlins right because the Marlins now don't have can't say, well, we'll you want Bellinger. We want Walker. Bueller? We don't think they were ever going to give them bell. No, they weren't. But now they can't even ask for it. So that means that. Now, there are very few DJ LeMay who who I thought might sign with the dodgers signed with the Yankees today. That's an I think by the way, that's the precursor to the Phillies getting Manny Machado. I think the dodge the Yankees are. You know, they signed to Lewinsky they've got DJ LeMay, Hugh, and they've got gregorious coming back in a year. Right. So I so. Soom? You're right. Let's assume Manny Machado signs with the Phillies who gets Bryce Harper us. Really? They'll go. What's the contract? Look like. It's it makes them the secures. They go as high as six. Yeah. They can go to six right? Yeah. They can opt out after three, but they're not going to do it. They and I don't think Bryce Harper's camp wants them to do it either. Apparently, there's there's I think it's Ken Rosenthal. Also says that three hundred and fifty million dollars plus going to from the Phillies is being offered to arbitrate price. Harper goes, I think Harper ends up in Chicago with the white snow. I don't think so I think that's he has friends. But but keep in mind. I mean, they're going to be awful. They are he's going to use. Hey there or he goes, you know, what actually I'll take it back. I think he stays with the nationals. They've got they offered him ten years. Three hundred million Allred restaurant. And I'm more. He wants to be in Los Angeles. Yeah. He lives in Iowa counts. As friends went one them to be in Los Angeles. He wants to be here. He thinks he can become a bigger star here. I don't understand why the dodgers will not pony up. Here. We moved Puig. We moved camp. We're not gonna get JT where Muto now we're gonna get honestly the dodgers their season comes down to this their off-season. They basically added Russell Martin. They added Joe Kelley reliever they subtracted. Yes. Yo- Puig and Matt Kemp, and that's their off-season. Although Greg pointed out to me earlier today, they do get Cory Seager back. That'll be there. So would the dodger or is this too too much money with the dodgers off offer Harper? Harper wins ten years. What if the dodgers offered him six years two hundred and forty million? That's what I that's what I just jotted down six years two hundred and forty million. I think it's more about the amount of years and the amount of money. He wants more than what Stanton got he wants more than that three hundred and twenty five million. But if he gets six years to forty with an opt out after three I think that's in it really just becomes a three year contract for forty million a year. It's three years one twenty and then he goes back. He'll become hill have the highest average salary of any player in North American sports history. And that's the dodgers point of view, and that makes total sense to us here in LA and maybe to Andrew Friedman. But to Scott Boras and Bryce Harper, I think they're dead set on making that giant number. This is their chance in their mind of getting the ten years, plus the Greg anybody. Gives them ten years. Well, really, I mean, supposedly there's the ten year three hundred million dollars is out there. Plus, okay. But pretend you're Harper. Yep. On you have that you have ten years three hundred million from the nationals in your left hand in your right hand. The dodgers say here's six years to forty. What's a better deal? I mean to me the better deal is six years to forty million ear instead of thirty million a year, and you could go back after three years to get an opt out, you could go back and get more and makes total sense. But I think the the perception of having that beating that tenure three twenty five spite your face the perception shouldn't out rule what the better deal is in the better deal. It'd be forty million a year instead of thirty million talk to Scott Boris. That's just what he's got it at the end of the day of those were his two choices Scott's pretty practical and pretty smart and a port. And according to all reports also is that that first ten year three hundred million was not the first deal that was that was only the first deal they actually offered more on top of that later on and just hasn't been reported out. So I kind of agree with? With Dylan Hernandez who said that the dodgers. Oh their fans Bryce Harper. I think they do. I mean, you know, what the driven town, man. The one thing about UCLA was he I four eight a totally solid season last year both defensively and ofensive -ly. He had a really good postseason. He hit that big home run in the Washington series. Not the Washington who who's the first on the Braves series and won that game. And he was the guy who was the fun. He was the guy who is licking his bat. He was the guy who is running. I third. He was the guy that was making laser throws mean he was one of the guys you wanted to see and was fun to watch. And he's gone now. I can't say that any of the current dodgers mean collectively, they're fun to watch. Because it's a really good team. But there's no real star in the bunch. I mean Walker here's another question. I have for you guys. I agree with that. By the way, everything you just said. I think Dylan and you're right. If opening day was tomorrow. Who starts Walker bueller or Clayton Kershaw? Well, I think I think Walker Buehler's got better stuff. But I do think there's the the dodgers would would start Clayton Kershaw. What do you think? Greg. Clayton Kershaw will be starting in my mind. Yeah. It's weird that everybody thinks what Mason just said everyone thinks it Walker Bieler has better stuff at this stage of their careers, yet Kershaw gets grandfathered in you know, it's weird. He started basically every the last seven or eight opening days, and he's still a guy that you need to be believed that he is the ace and he's still teaching Walker Beulah. But sooner or later, I can pivot to something that kind of has to do with this or we up against it or we are three minutes. Okay. So I want to I'm going to do a pivot here. Okay. Did you guys? The second round of all star votes that were released by the NBA. Oh, yeah. No. I didn't see him. Okay. So here's the front court in the Western Conference Chen. Number one, vocab her LeBron James, two point seven million votes. Number. Two Luca Dante, wow is captured lightning in a bottle to point to number three Paul George who's having an all star season one point eight. So the fans get fifty percent of the vote than the players in the league get involved, and then they decide on starters. But if the fans like if it was like, it wasn't the old days if the fans got to decide or like it is in baseball. It would be LeBron Dante and Paul George on the frontline. Wow. Kevin Durant is fourth. Why why has Kevin Durant dropped in popularity? Why do you guys think? Well, I think Donncha which is the new thing. I I think in very by the way, the fans that are really good job here. Paul George seven a great. You're good for him. He's right there near the top Durant. I think we take for granted what we see all the time, by the way, Anthony Davis v. I think don't you think the more we see a player the more. We take him for granted. But I think when he moved to the super team he became less popular if like, oh, really you're going there. And then add in the fact that while Steph curry was out they were losing games of. So his value for the team. All right. Let me throw another. Let me throw another one at you. Kate here are against so you get three front courts, and you get to back court positions for the five starters k the guard leaning back court guard in the west is Steph curry number two is Derrick rose who's having a really weird like breakthrough season high fifty points. Number three is James. Harden, who by any measure is the best player in the NBA this year. Yep. Why is he third? Why don't people like him? I think there are people that don't like harden because he gets too many fouls. Yeah. Because a he fakes too many fouls. He's a foul faker. And by the way, he's only he's less than two hundred thousand votes ahead of Russell Westbrook. He's almost fourth because he's on the ground every other play. He's fouled every play. But he's a pretty amazing those three pointers where he kicks his legs out. And then draws the foul all star games leads the NBA and scoring. He's second in assists. He's all he's the MVP of the league. Right. And this is only half the this is only half the equation, right because the players are going to have their. But this is the one that gives a barometer of what the public thinks. Yeah. By the good sign for the Lakers. Lonzo ball eighth in the west. Wow. And Kyle Kuzma eighth in the west at in the front court. So coups is a head of Draymond green. And almost as many as Nikola Yokich, so people recognizing all this stuff kouzmines doing. All right. Hey, coming up, next Scottie Pippen said something really interesting on sportscenter today that it's about the Lakers, and I wanna get your reaction to it. That's coming up next. All right. Sam Lagaan wants to know what time I will arrive at Rams house tomorrow for the game. Yeah. I would imagine about this time tomorrow people are going to start rolling. Oh, yeah. We will get there early. The great thing about a night game at the Coliseum is everybody's drunk five fifteen kick. Yeah. Five fifteen kick everybody. Everybody's drunk. And that makes for a wild environment, and by the way, vivid seats, let me see if I've got this here, vivid seats has come up with a number. There were one of the secondary market sellers. Number for what percentage of the crowd will be Cowboys fans in attendance for the game, vivid seats is projecting. Saturday's game to have seventy one percent Rams fans and twenty nine percent. Cowboys fans. Can you believe how many people are worked up about that particular question? Like every time we talk about this. I get ten tweets from ram fans and ten tweets from cowboy fencing. What are you talking about ram fans will tell their tickets? What are you talking about? I think it's going to be closer to fifty fifty. See, I don't I don't I think were underestimating. I think you're underestimating ramps fans. I mean haven't been there all year long. I can't imagine a stadium. That is fifty fifty. I just can't. And by the way in New Orleans eighteen. Scent of the fans will be eagles fans in Kansas City. Nineteen percent of the fans will be colts fans and in New England twenty percent of the fans will be chargers fans, according to vivid seats, and again twenty nine percent cowboy fans seventy one percent ramps fans. So they've got some sort of scientific research study that they've done. I assume they know what they're talking about. Well, it's going to be a big narrative for FOX. And and I think that they're going to talk about it a lot and show it and you'll see after a touchdown. They'll pan the whole crowd. I think that will know we'll get we'll get an honest answer to this question by the end of tomorrow night. And here's the here's the thing. I mean, one of the fun things about going to Rams games is they're always teams for the they're always fans for the opposing teams yet. But the Cowboys are different animal. The Cowboys are like the Lakers everywhere, we go there tonight in Utah, right? There will be sections full of Laker fans. Now, I would say tonight it's going to be said. Seventy five twenty five jazz fans but still for regular NBA game. It's like ninety five five see that's what I'm expecting seventy five twenty five or so or so tomorrow, I think you know, what it is John. I think everybody is struggling with the credibility of the National Football League in Los Angeles. You know, because there were so many questions when the the NFL returned LA does does LA care LA doesn't need a team L A. And then the both teams had bad seasons to to start here. The Rams had a terrible season to start last year twelve and four this year thirteen and three two playoff berths. I mean, I think people are underestimating the commitment of Rams fans to the team. And you're right, Ed. But by the end of you know, I'll send out some Instagram videos tomorrow kind of showing exactly where I'm sitting. I'm sitting on the ramp side. But but getting an idea of how many are. Cowboys fans, and how many Rams fans you generally know when you get in line at the game to go into the gates exactly what the percentage is going to be. So, but it it's it's going to be fun, regardless. No matter what. And I I am just it will devastate me if they don't win. Well, it'd be because it'll be two years in row of earning a home earning. A by this year last year, they earned a home playoff game. Yup. And then not cashing it in. Yeah. They've been great in these two regular seasons. But let's face. It. People are paid big money to deliver in the postseason. And that's why the Rams went out and got all these guys and tomorrow, we find out whether it was worth it. Yup. We all knew they were going to make the playoffs. Like, you know. Can we say that now that at the end of the I mean, there was never a question. If this team was going to the postseason, it's it's what they can do now starting tomorrow, and it just blows my mind that if they win tomorrow just to. Years removed from Jeff Fisher. Yup. There one game away from the Super Bowl. If they win tomorrow, you know, I told the story yesterday, but I'll repeat it, you know, when I was a little kid. How many times did the Rams play the Cowboys in the seventies in the playoffs? It seemed like every single year. It was the Cowboys the Vikings and the Rams and the Cowboys and Vikings always got over on us. Always got over until nineteen all boys. Played the Rams in LA. Now. My dad knew as a huge ramps fan growing up as a kid. So my dad took me to the game and the Cowboys won twenty eight to nothing. In LA. It was oh that's terrible. This tomorrow payback. Yes. So I came across this this little video clip of Scottie Pippen. I think it's from sportscenter Greg from the jump. He goes on the jump alive. No, it was it was with Kerry champion. So we're supposed to champion. So it's sportscenter. All right. He made a bold prediction for the second half of the season. Talk to me about your bold prediction for the second half of the season while volt predicts my over Dixon really would would be for Anthony Davis to get moved to the Los Angeles. Have you? I'm looking at. Here. Okay. I see this happening. Really because stocks to me New Orleans is not having a very good season. And I think LeBron James the superstar, right? I do believe that that's something that Lakers have to be working on right now. In terms of what they seen the first half of the season. How much the Braun has been able to bring his team up in the fact that they realize in terms of being some of the better teams, Golden State, Houston rock rockets, even okay see LeBron is going to need them though. The superstar onside him. L A as you age. Yes. Yes. I mean, I'm just saying I'm not telling. So there's your bold prediction AD to the Lakers in the second half of this season. Well, first of all I disagree with both of them. I think Anthony Davis could move. But I don't think it'll be during this season. The pelicans just don't have any incentive to move them until they can get the Celtics to the table. The Celtics can't trade for Anthony Davis while they have kyri Irving under their designated player exception. It's a contractual. Do you guys can look it up. So they would have to move some things around in the summer in order to make an offer to the pelicans. And if you're the pelican, Steve and you want the most return for Anthony Davis, and you've got him under contract not only this year. But next year, why wouldn't you wait until you see if the if the Celtics would be willing to give up Jason Tatum? But see that to me indicates. The Lakers aren't going to get them. Ted disagree with that too. Here's why. Okay. On one hand. Let's we the Lakers. Make the godfather offer all the young guys. Yes. All the young guys. Okay. And then the Celtics make an offer that includes will we can put anybody you want in there that that includes Jalen Brown, and even Jason Tatum, and let's say Al Horford and they've got three number one draft picks and picks. Okay. Do to lottery picks. Are we sure that of all those players? That kyle. Kuzma is not the best one. No. I think Jason Tatum is the best one. Maybe. But I don't think they're see. Here's my thing. I don't think the Celtics potato and the deal. If you listen to like, die hard Celtic fans Bill. Simmons says no way they will not put him in the deal. People that talked to you Ryan russillo. People you use worked for the says Tatum is not in the trade. And if Tatum's not in the trade, I think it's advantage Lakers. But to get back to Scotties comment in order for this decision. Even to to come to the pelicans, they have to wait till the summer. Why would they trade him? Now, not Anthony Davis says I'm I'm not resigning with you guys represent going to say that to till they make they can't give him the supermax until the summer. That's when they'll know when they offer him the supermax, and he turns it down, but they can't offer to them until June. Yeah. But if you're Davis is it all about the money. If he turns down the supermax of the answer is no the answer is no what you're saying is Anthony Davis would walk into them. Now. And say, I'm not reciting. I'm not resigning the supermax. I want a Great Lakes. Now, I wanna go I wanna go play with Brown. I want to compete for a championship. And she came said giving no indication that that's what he'll do. Right now, if he does that then all bets are off. But I mean, I think if you get to the summer, it means we're not getting Anthony Davis because our offer can't get any better are offers. All right for the forty s and let me let me ask you. This are offer versus the Celtics offer without Tatum. What would you rather have? If you're the pelicans. I'll tell you next. Yeah. I mean, you get know star. If you take yourself any trae, oh next. I'll tell you. I'll tell you'll tell me I'll tell Danny trae hill. Next. Hey, it is monster night tomorrow at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum as the Los Angeles Rams host the Dallas Cowboys and one of the guys you always see at Rams games. And he's often the guy that yells whose house is Danny trae ho Danny thanks for coming on. How are you man? Thank you. Great grades Rams by three bread seven. But they're only going to win by three. It's going to be a really tough game. But we have the two best running back to the movie. Why Guinea I said twenty eight twenty four Rams. So I'm in your neighborhood to I think it's going to be a close game that the Rams win dating to five fifteen kick. What is the appropriate time for fans to arrive at the Coliseum tomorrow in your opinion. What time should they get there? Well, I get three I'll get there at three to five clog game. I just. I liked the whole ambience of the college. You a sneak into the gutter see him fifty seven fifty when the Rams played. And so it's like to me is just Deehan there. It's like doing we get to have any vet every Saturday or Sunday when the Rams lay wait a minute for you for real you were sneaking into the Coliseum and fifty seven and fifty eight absolutely. How old you wait a minute. Are you right? You were born in echo park. Well, I I was I stayed in echo park. Lies about thirteen. And then my mom and dad to keep me out of trouble movie to coin. Yeah. It was going to say that did it work. Potentially glass. It was. In. I didn't know that that you were coming on today. And we had Bryan Cranston on earlier in the show you play Tortuga on breaking bad and your first appearance was in season to Mason. I love breaking bad to both of us. It's a top five show of all time. Did you know when you first did it in season two that it was gonna be what it turned out to be? Did you know it was going to be this monster hit, you know, what you get? You know, what you get one that? That was the number one show they had that season. That was like that wouldn't just blew up, and I became we'll famous as the guy who's head was on a turtle, right? Yes. And so I I remember when Gloria my agent at said, hey, you're gonna do one of Hollywood's first what's that he says uterit- across the desert on a turtle. I thought it was going to be like animation. That's why the big turtle just well just your head. Okay. Cool us though was great, dude. You've got like. Two hundred credits on your page. I the guy. About three hundred something. Yeah. You man, you work a ton, man. A ton the one I played at my movie theaters was machete kills. That's now. I see there's going to be a machete kills in space. Is that right? You know, what we're waiting for Robert Voy? We'll wait for Robert Rodriguez. I I really like have people sending him emails and stuff. When are we doing what chip it's kills in space? They'll be great. That would be like conic like the like moon raker for the double o seven member. Oh, yeah. We're we're talking to the great actor Danny trae who's a huge ramps fan, and they'll beat the Coliseum tomorrow to watch the Rams and the Cowboys Danny are you more worried about the offense and the way Jarod Goff played towards the end of the year or the defense because the defense tends to give up a lot of points. Well, you don't we got that big ninety nine? I mean, we've got we've got some unbelievable defense is going right now. So I just we have to establish that running game. We got the best running backs and the NFL them to and girly is just massive. He's back. So right now, the the the spread seven, and I'm thinking that I think is going to be about three, but we will win. So we establish that running game. And then golf can throw anything he wants, you know, Danny we've been talking about the convoys travel. Well, there will be Kabwe fans there. No matter who the Rams play. There are fans of the. I think it's going to be like seventy five twenty five ramps fans. What do you think I think fifty fifty Danny? I think there's going to be a lot of cowboy fans there. I you know, what it's going to be you don't want to win. I think it's going to be like fifty fifty really it's going to be unbelievable because we've got so many ram fans. I mean, so many a Dallas cowboy fan, you know, we used to have a lot of raiders fans, but they've been turning in their reader jerseys for parameters memorabilia. Right. And the Rams are slowly converting the city. But I just think these cowboy fans are going to pay like Mason would never sell his tickets. My guess is you wouldn't sell your tickets either. But to an average rampant fan if some cowboy comes in with a big cowboy hat with hundred dollar bills and roll and offers what did you say? Your tickets were going for in your seats in the seats in my section going for nine hundred bucks. I could conceivably. So my seats for nine hundred bucks a piece, and there's no way I'm going to. But Danny some people will if you can get a thousand dollars for your ticket. Some people are going to do that. Don't you think? Yeah. I guess they've I wouldn't you know what I mean? I pull out my role to go by you're getting giving somebody. Now, are you the guy that's going to be in the end zone tomorrow? Yelling who's absolutely man. I'm there every time they play. Yeah. I you know, it's a lifetime. And I'm making my reservations where land, you know, we're going to the Super Bowl. Absolutely, absolutely. You know? It's my lifetime dream to be the guy that yells who's in the end zone and Rams game. Cool. When they asked me to do that. So yeah, you get him in. All right. So what's what's your feeling for the way the game plays out tomorrow? And a final score. I told you about right man, you're about right? It's going to be three points twenty eight. He's going to be close. You know? Yeah. I think it's going to be twenty Danny said three I think it's going to be four Mason. You think they win by ten thirty one Twenty-one ramps? Thirty one twenty. That's that's ten point. They'll beat the spread. Yeah. Spread beat the spread. Hey, listen, Danny great. Having you on really fun. We will see you tomorrow at the Coliseum. I will be looking forward to hearing you yell. Go Rams go whose house. You've got it. All right. Thanks, dan. Do you think you so much? All right. You bet man anytime. Thanks for coming on. All right. There's there's Danny trail. Yeah. He breaking bad when he's heads on the to-. Yeah. Right. I'd forgotten that that's his head on the turtle. Great. He's in heat to he's an everything. Yeah. That's why the guys in the rewatch people say would this movie better? If Danny trae ho is. Machete kills in space. That's one I'm looking forward to. All right. Got fasttrack coming up for you in ten minutes. I John, you know, coaches are being have been fired and are now being hired in the National Football League left, right and sideways, and we mentioned the trend that five African American coaches have been fired. And so far six white coaches have been hired and Dale Hansen. Who is one of the most compelling is in the world has been in Dallas for thirty years did a commentary on exactly this subject on white privilege here is Dale put a lot of criticism of the Zona cardinals hiring cliff Kingsbury, their new coach, even my guys Mike and John have been questioning that higher, but Kingsbury fits all the criteria to be a head coach of the NFL. He's an offense of genius. He's young and he's white and not necessary. -sarily in that order. There have been six new coaches hired so far all white and two coaches of color. They are replacing Stephen Wilkes fired in Arizona after just one year. Vance Joseph in Denver after just to the Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is in his ninth year, apparently because he wins so much a lot of people don't understand how Kingsbury can have a losing record at Texas Tech. No NFL experience and get one of the thirty two NFL jobs, but getting fired at tech doesn't eliminating from moving up. At least it doesn't to me. I've had eleven jobs at my life been fired from eight of them and moved up every time. And I am Merigan enough to tell you. I think channel eight was right to give me another chance. But I am the product of white privilege in America. And I've never denied that. I wasn't either. If they made a poster by picture should be on it getting fired at one place and getting another chance at the problem. But young talented coaches have covered not getting the chance that. It's a huge problem. The covert racism of the NFL ownership group was so bad the NFL had to make a rule. So that minority coaches could at least get an interview cowboy secondary coach Chris Rashard has been interviewed. And there are reports saying he might get the Miami job after what he's done with this Cowboys defense. How could he not unless it is true? What black parents have been telling their children for decades? Now, you have to be twice as good to go half as far. I dream that the day when those parents are wrong because now they're not. So there you have it Dale Hansen. Any makes really good points there. I played that for Lisa, my wife, and she said the same thing's true about women. You gotta be twice as good. Yeah. To make it half as far. Yeah. White white men. And we'll the world you, and I you and I both are white men. We do suffer from or actually enjoy white privilege that would be the way to phrase that enjoy white priv. We're fan we benefit from it. It is it you can't walk in and say hire me, I'm white guy. It's just inherent particularly in the NFL. I mean, you, and I were talking to you today about the fact that the NBA has the same percentage of black players that the NFL does yet. They have black coaches left, right and sideways. Yeah. But in the NFL, and you told me because I I haven't seen any articles about it or anything did the Rooney rule. Just go away are all these teams following the Rooney rule. Yeah. I've not heard the Rooney rule even mentioned. I I'm wondering if the black coaches association has made any statement about this crystal shard, the guy Dale mentioned who coaches the Cowboys used to cover at USC USC football player is a black guy. Yup. And and he's the favourite to get the Miami job. So, you know, let's see. Yeah. No. It's a we've nothing to complain about where white men in a culture where people of color and women are disadvantaged. I think the phrase he used have to work twice as hard to get half as far, and you know, the big problem in the NFL is especially with this move towards offense. Follow this. What what race white guys are most likely to be quarterbacks. Right. Not as much as before. I mean, you look at Cuyler Murray when the Heisman Trophy this year to shine Watson. Lamar Jackson won the Heisman in won the starting job. So it's getting better. But most of the quarterbacks are white. Okay. But for many many years quarterbacks have been white. Oh, yeah. You won't go back ten years, even so who what people are getting jobs right now guys who can coach quarterback I shoot can coach quarterbacks and a lot of times you'll see defensive coordinators defensive position coaches being African American but on the offensive side offense of coordinators and a lot of cases former quarterback's offensive mines. They tend to be white. And so this trend towards offense of coordinators and quarterback whispers has put a black candidates at a real disadvantage because they don't have the opportunities. I mean, I'm trying to think if there is a black offense coordinator in the NFL. There may not be. Yeah. We'd have to go through the whole the whole list. Hey, let me ask you weird question. I'm just kind of thinking out loud here. Okay. Good. They think. So for twenty six years I worked in TV news. Yes. Your license. You're FCAT license. One of the components of it is is that you have to follow EEOC regulations, equal opportunity employment conditions regulations. So one of those things is your on air staff needs to reflect. The community. In other words, since Los Angeles has a very large Hispanic population. A certain percentage has of your audience have to be Hispanic. So that's for years. I worked with Sylvia Lopez and David Gonzales, and you know, thirteen percent of Los Angeles is African American. So you you'll see Pat Harvey and Jim hill, and it is a requirement. If you don't follow it. You lose your license. It is you know, what I don't like about. It is I I'm always very leery about quotas. But in TV it works. It just works. I mean, you get really talented people and every every station I ever worked at look like the United Nations, we had Asian people and white people and black people, and it just I don't know how to explain it other than just say it works. I don't know. I would hate to put a quote is in because then you can't always hire the best person for job. If you tell somebody you have to hire a white guy or you have to hire a black guy, then the people that aren't black or white get ruled out, you know, what? What I mean? Yeah. But could something like that. Work on an NFL level. Like that your staff or your management has to reflect even your your. May not necessarily your roster. But maybe your community would that work. Well, first of all, I I know you've said this a bunch of time a bunch of times. But there act the EU rules do not require that on air personalities be people have different colors. I'm reading I'm reading the EOC. Well, the way it was me. My may station manager one year was that we had to have. I think the way they phrase it is your on air staff has to be Representative of the community in which you broadcast in. So there's a wide interpretation there. In other words, if you were in San Francisco, and you didn't have any Asian American people on your staff, you the ANC might not or the FCAT might not renew your licence because there's such a big Asian population in San Francisco in southern California. It's hist. Spanich? We have we have tons of Hispanic people. So that's that's the I look at this the opposite way. John. So I if I was if I'm in business, right? If I'm in the business of TV yet. And I know we have a large Hispanic population in Los Angeles while I just want Hispanic anchors. If I we have a large black community in Los Angeles. While I want African American anchors. I want to be able to touch in every community. That's that's actually watching the day actually require. It is the difference. You're just using common business sense. By the way, let me let me jump in question who had earlier Eric b enemy is the offense of meter for the chiefs and has been mentioned for some jobs to. Yeah. And Byron left which was promoted after Zona fired Mike McCoy, but he got fired. But now is already already got a second job so left which and be enemy are two examples of black offense coordinator, and by the way, I I'll say this too about you know, it wasn't that long ago. When you and I were working for. The mighty six ninety where it was a fleet of white guys. It was all like guys. What's funny? Seven ten is the opposite. Yeah, we're the option like you look at where the one show that has to white guys the morning show has two black guys and Travis then we've got a black guy Stephen Smith. Then we got me in you. Then we got George Cuban. Yup. Work. We we we in LA is like the United yet. We we reflect the community where we work, and I think that's one of the reasons why the station has been so successful. I kind of next as fast track. Mason Ireland ESPN LA.

I had chicago last night. We welcome you back with that to another hour of upcoming you live from above the heineken river decade pier seventeen seventeen u._c._l._a. Full house here this morning and we are ready to go on a football friday. Were getting up with a defensive struggle at soldier field the n._f._l. Season opens with a throwback literally and figuratively full highlights and reaction in a minute then forget lasting the season will make it to the season in oakland. We just talked to rose and you'll hear from that interview in just a few minutes hand. She is back with another chains once again serena in a slam final with history hanging in the balance. Let's get up on on a football friday starting right now. What the thursday night opener the one hundred season pro football in america starting with the oldest rivalry of the sport there's khalil mack and the bears hosting aaron rodgers plan to the first time ever under that man that look and it would start terribly the bears defense all over erin look. That's a bull rush folks. That's how you take offense at guard walking back into the quarterback lap and just plant them right on the quarterback. I mean that's about as good as it gets. That was the first drive. Here's the second khalil mack look. He's very very good. I and i know that sucking news everybody. This guy has this. He's a freak of nature. He's going to have a big big year. Minus twelve first quarter yards for the green bay offense but then i was play of the second quarter they get it going. They finally give rogers some time. Any finds this man you didn't realize in the second quarter that this would be what the side of the game that play right there the bears quite tough the whole game but roger found the weakness that drew the down safety and now you just don't away from prince amukamara cornerback forty seven yards to marquez valdez scantly is you see rogers can can still air it out and if you notice this touchdown drive spoiler alert the only touchdown of the night a lot of plays. It looked like they just made up here. On the touch vantage. Just fifty fifty balls dump vault get caught behind jimmy graham in the end zone and he boxes you out like he's playing basketball like a used to at the you get our going on. It'd be now you happy. Just get settled so that's bad fundamental defense on the part of the best seventy four yards on four plays for an eight yard touchdown there for jimmy grant third quarter same story for the bears. There's often just terrible one of nine on third down make it one of ten is to bisky overthrows cordeiro patterson that may issue the field attempt here. Maybe they only have three points on the board. They're gonna go far in the fourth. They are not going to get close. The crowd is leading the chicago team here at at home now four minutes on the clock third and ten midfield. There's desperately needs something to get going here. They do they find alan robinson. He put for al robinson all night. Nothing alan robson's. You're on offense. That really played a phenomenal gain. You have to find him early and find him so can they punch it in. That's the question and the answer is no trubisky. See this one coming the whole way. You stare down your primary receiver. Tell jeff when you're going with the football littlefield saint just going to read your there is just like he does here and that's exit amos who used to practice against mitch trubisky because they were on the same team. That's what happens. You thought it simple covered. It usually doesn't end very well. Bears were get one more chance and that didn't end well either on fourth down. That's all she wrote packers over the season with a ten three win. It wasn't pretty but it's a road victory in the division for greenback greenback. Obviously i hold myself to high standard and i didn't play <hes> didn't play great tonight but the watch defense like that. It gives you a lot of confidence about where this team can go in a game that most people thought we were going to get probably trounced. Obviously unacceptable starts with me so this this <hes> just told the guys there. This is not who we are. Three points is ridiculous. There's no there's no excuses the every fan that showed up from chicago today. That was a chicago bears fan should they should be upset. Trust me they are a main from green bay. That defense was much improved. Thanks to the investment the front office they spent a combined forty eight million dollars in guaranteed money does daria smith preston smith and adrian ammos who was able to make the game winning pick and so that green bay defence look great and i feel like we've talked a lot about that this morning and rightfully so that was the story of the game but jonathan. Let's talk about the bears for a moment here. High expectations made a made the deep playoff run last year if not for the double on the field goal and you come out and lay an egg like that in week one. What did that tell you well. It tells me the way that they prepared in the off. Season was a team. That's it's been there done that or so. They thought didn't understand that you have to continue going and can continue preparing now. Mitch trubisky this too and the offense and i can't find a single play. They ran where he looked comfortable. I can't find one time where he said okay. I can scan the defense and i know where to go with the ball having outlet. He looked inaccurate. He looked ansi he he frankly looked like he was still in college and this was his rookie year getting beat up now give credit to the packers and the defensive line the pressure and a secondary but i need to see something more more from that offensive from mr bisky but he didn't play at all in the preseason for whatever that's worth so maybe they're kicking off roster. Whatever but we had the sound bite earlier from the green bay defense saying we wanted wanted to make mitch play quarterback well they did and he did well what they did was. They forced him to sit in the pocket and throw in when you do that. There isn't a scrambling ability. Mitch trubisky loves to get out and scrambling picks up those third downs with his legs spy on them last night. Only eleven scramble yards twenty three per game last season. So who was it like he was able to get out there and get comfortable. Sometimes quarterbacks especially funny guys when they're moving around a little bit that allows them to develop that rhythm but give green bay a lot of credit. They designed and a great game plan. They rushed four a lot of times and they were able to get home how to spy didn't let them out and that's why they're able to have success and remember this greenie. The last time the green bay packers had a top ten defense two thousand ten in one super bowl. I mean aaron rodgers generally wouldn't he gets the help and maybe this is the year where they finally got it for for a much primary. Takeaway from last night lewis yeah. I think you're gonna have to see matt nagy really get mitch mitch comfortable and get him comfortable early and football games kind of the same way quite honestly pat i did with daniel jones's preseason start to progressively push the ball down the field but make him have some easy completions early and then get them more comfortable in the pocket and not what with his legs not designed rollouts not athletic plays but actually quarterback plays as the green bay defense said. We make you play quarterback. We don't think you can win and they we need to develop that competent. Here's what's bothering me right now. We had matt nagy on this show a month or so ago and he said this is the year we're going to open things up a little bit more for mitchell trubisky. Give him more of the playbook. Give him an opportunity to be a little bit more aggressive and it certainly didn't look that way last night. It didn't look that way but it's because he missed her and when you miss early as a quarterback in ever get into a rhythm now bear in in mind the bears were without their top tight end burton who's also another phenomenal gadget player that they're good at using but trubisky like like vilma said you just can't start off that rough and start off that bats specifically greenie when you have a defense that is dominant. The game was never out of hand. It's not as if the beers ever had to just start passing fifty sixty times to get within reach. The defense was dominant initiative guests to help show vilma help me put this into perspective for fans in chicago in particular who are waking up upset this morning in one conversation we can say well. They didn't play at all in the preseason. September timber is the new preseason all of that. How concerned should a bears fan be about how bad their offense look last night. Wow very real uh-huh real quickly because you mentioned opening up the offense that tells me that they didn't focus on the other plays the core place that they can fall back on and that's what happened yesterday. They were no core replace that chicago fall back for risky because they're trying to open up the offense. They have all these plays in there and they can't run any of them well so it'd be very concerned. I think just like from year one year. Two players make jumps from game one game two players make jumps coaches make jumps. They see some things in real time for the first time where they can go back and say okay look. Let's let's rain this back in it was i guess we're trying to do everything i think you know. They put out they go out and land negligent again then going to hear me calling into some chicago hi. It's not it's not a criticism. It's a statement traded up to take him ahead of patrick mahomes andrew shawn watson. That's just what happened and it was was it tough start for him according to n._f._l. Next gen stats the bears quarterback was four of eleven under pressure and five of twelve throwing into tight windows. It was even worse on attempts. Ten plus yards down the field total q._b._r. Fifteen point four was the third lowest in a single game in his career remember. This is a guy who had the third highest q._b._r. And the entire sport last year so mark we're talking about how they made him look and feel uncomfortable. Take me through that when you're a quarterback. What do you try to do to work your way out of something like that. Let me give you some perspective effective. I used to play against this guy. Every day. Mike patton our games and our practices and training camp looked like that game it was so frustrating he shows you simulated he later pressure. You think something's coming then at the snap of the ball you gotta change your whole way of thinking and try and get back on track he. He wasn't comfortable all night but this isn't the end from the bears. There's this isn't what what we saw is too great defenses. Yeah it was a war of attrition and the fifteen year veteran knew a little bit more than the third year veteran to be clear yeah. He's the new defensive coordinator in green bay and he used to be the d. coordinator with chats under rex. Which is why you would have been practiced off against him. So you still have faith. They said they wanted to force them to to make make plays from the pocket and he really wasn't able to do you still have faith. He'll be able to do it. I absolutely think he'll be just fine as the year rolls on but they're going to have their work cut out for him. They have to road <music> games coming up right and they're going to have to steal a win in green bay later on if they're going to fight for this division title yeah. That's maybe the most important point to make here. If you're a fan and chicago the cargo trying to decide how upset you should be even if you start playing better you just lost hongda in the division and what figures to maybe the tightest division in the sport so it it could wind the one that you regret. Even if the offense starts to look a lot better okay we have much more on this game as we continue but next to the other huge story of the day add another chapter her the soap opera that is antonio brown's tenure in oakland is the team is now reportedly planning to suspend brown after he got into a heated exchange with general manager mike mayock doc on wednesday jon gruden yesterday i think for the last four weeks we have been practicing without him and preparing to play <hes> no matter who's injured you have to adapt and <hes> unfortunately we had to adapt again today but we're really excited about our receiving core. I'm emotional about it. Hope you opie hope. You understand why. I think a lot of this guy they antonio is a great receiver and i think deep down. I think he's a really good guy so i'm. I'm frustrated. I'm not gonna say any more about. I hope it all works out <hes> but i don't have anything official to say about anything else until i get all the facts and that's one of the do by add another chapter to this wild antonio brown saga in oakland. It started in july with those feet. He went on the non football injury list with frostbite for may cryotherapy session that went wrong. The month of august was consumed with brown's grievances with the league over his outdated and now outlawed helmet never even reports. He was considering retirement armant over the helmet issue now. He's got a new helmet and he's back but then things come to a boil this week when a._b. Went on instagram to publicly complain about the fifty four thousand dollars in fines james which he received for missing so much time in camp that led to wednesday's confrontation with the g._m. Mike mayock now the fifty four thousand dollar fine. Maybe the least of his concerns if the raider suspend him for week one his twenty nine million dollars in guarantees we'll be void which could pave the way for the raiders to release him without paying anything if he's actor for week one then the fourteen eighteen and a half million dollars for this year is fully guaranteed. We had his agent drew. Rosenhaus live here with us about twenty minutes ago. In tonio. <hes> right now is working very hard to get everything resolved weaken team without his suspension. Hopefully being being able to come back practice and play as soon as possible. I've been working diligently with the teen over the last twenty four hours i to get this situation resolved. If it's up to me if it's up ten tonio he'll be back immediately and we can put all this stuff behind him some communications. We'll continue today tomorrow. Hopefully we can get things resolved where he can play against the denver broncos. That's that's their game monday night again. Louis riddick. You'll be there to call that game. It was about a ten minute conversation. We had withdrew. He did not want to get into the details of whatever provoked the confrontation. He describes the relationship between antonio brown and jon gruden as being really good and you saw john they're talking about. How emotionally is about this. He didn't want to get into the relationship with mike mayock at the end of the day. This is jon gruden show. It is going to be his team going forward to matter what he's the guy with all the money in his contract and everything else. Do you believe jon gruden. Make sure one way or another other. Antonio brown is back with this team. Jon gruden does because it behooves everybody for antonio brown to be on the field jon gruden benefits a benefits and we all have to remember solid football play they cover a multitude of since many athletes have done much worse but as soon as he gets on the field starts bawling again. We'll start to forget all the offseason drama. Antonio brown has over. We're fighting more than five thousand receiving yards then the receivers combined. That's five thousand the bad man he has to get on. It just feels like they've they've been trying to get into week one if they just get him on the field. Maybe things start to turn mark a quarterback <laughter>. What do you think derek carr is thinking is all this going. I think that's the key. Is you gotta get them on the field field. I mean how hard is it. Just it's very hard. Market is obviously very hard. At a certain point you reach a threshold and it's a point of no return in some ways is is it better now to cut ties and go get derek carr some help before the trade deadline. It might be a loose. You've been around them a lot leading up to the game coming up here this money's what sense do you get from the people you talk to their of how they're reacting to this. And what do you think is going to happen. You know what's interesting. How people react until the players seem to really like gabi. The players really get on with him and the players who that i've talked to him that we've talked to really seem to like his energy. They obviously respect his ability on the football field with we all know ultimately is what we really use to judge whether or not a guy if someone were gonna accept into the locker room if you can play with guys we know oh that don't even make the news who were doing stuff that many people would say. He's doing what you need to cut him. Get him out of there doing things much worse than arguing with the g._m. And i'm not trying to downplay arguing and with the g._m. On the practice field it's not something you want to be doing but look you paid to win football games in the n._f._l. Sponsorship i use the word. He has it in jon in gruden jon. Gruden is the one who virtual his contract gets everyone else their security because they know they've got ten years to get things right with him and he's got a great relationship with the owner. He's he's going to make the decision about whether antonio brown but lose what what kills me is. The raiders made their bed. They knew what they were doing. Sign sign richie incognito neto you signed volunteers perfect all hughes personalities who have had a lot of drama. If you didn't think you could handle the personality don't bring him in here and that looks bad for everybody. Mike mayock you g go huge personality analogy huge. He's very dominant a._p. Huge ego all it is is a tug of war of pride and egos. That's what's coming. This is going gotta do is gonna test john's leadership ability to the maximum right now because i don't mean that i'm not trying to diminish. Mike makes influence on this football team but you know who's driving things out there. John's going to have to be the one who says look. This is how we're gonna handle this going forward a._b. This is what i'm going to need from. You're gonna have to give it to me mike. This is how we're going to generally manage manage this player in particular because otherwise without him on the team. We look much different. He's got to do it in front of the team. In a way that guys can respect. I one hundred percent agree. Listen isn't the end of the day. The one thing that i think you have to take into account here. Is the raiders gave him everything. He wanted all right he wanted to pittsburgh. He wanted the new contract. They brought him in really make him. The centerpiece of the entire offense right now is behavior is not that of a person who wants to be a football player that just sort of what you see. It is the reason why they're going to be hard pressed to let him go. That may very well be the case. Let me get up and go because i have a lot of other things on the menu this morning. Including ezekiel elliott is contract extension. It's now out of the way the big question big d is when the team will come to terms on a long term extension with dak prescott that though isn't letting that talk become a distraction listen chester contract extension for the rest of his career. He's so sweden. I mean obviously i want to see it done. The put a timeframe on. I think i've said this before. I'm not gonna do that. I don't want to blow my mind myself any bits <hes> with thinking about those talks for thinking about what's going on <hes> when i've got enough on my plate to handle so i'm just focused on. The giants got people to take care of that mark sanchez. Did he have to have a new contract to play this season he should i love the company line. Though the guy's got his head down he works as off. I was locker room with them. I just appreciate that sure you gotta pay the guy he ultimately. I believe we will get paid but they don't have to if they don't want to. He's there and they could play out and see where it goes from there. Meanwhile get up and go to los angeles where rams coach sean mcveigh so there will be no restrictions on running back todd gurley when they open against the panthers on sunday lewis. What are your expectations girly with. My expectations are whatever todd they would ever saw mcveigh says right now. I'm going to believe him and take him at his word until proven otherwise. We'll look toddler. Thug really's a horse. He is a dynamic three down player the n._f._l. That makes this team markedly better when he's on the football field so until proven otherwise. I told you they're gonna open with the loss at carolina this to the u._s. Open the other dominant performance by serena williams cruising in straight-sets pass number five seed elina spit alina six three six one three two on to the final worship play bianca undress q. saturday as she looks time margaret court for the all time record with twenty four grand slam titles i would definitely still we plan if i had had already passed it <hes> but i've had so many chances to pass it and a lot more so but it's cool because i'm implant an era with so many five errors with so many amazing players you know i think <hes> you look at at the span of the career in the players that i've played. It's amazing that i was able to get this another day another history setting record for serena williams with that win yesterday she will be making her ten th career u._s. Open finals appearance that will break a tie with chris evert for the most finals in the open era <music> out here a patrick mcenroe and mary joe fernandez. Serena williams dropped the set in her second round match. Mary jo she's just picked up steam continue to do that tonight against a top five player in spilling who get to the semis of wimbledon as well. She looks absolutely dominant today to his incredible. The last two matches have been the best imagine. I've seen her all year. She looks fit. She looks like she's moving better. She's dominating on sir even though she's not hitting that many aces but she's placing them well and she just looks focused. She looks like this. It's she is ready to win twenty four if you're watching she's been absolutely dominant. Meanwhile you can watch the men semi's they start four eastern. Turn on e._s._p._n. You will see medvedev against dmitrov in the first match and then rafah will take center stage as he will take on matteo bertini in prime time man men semifinals today on e._s._p._n. The women's final tomorrow a great weekend of tennis on e._s._p._n. All right as we continue he promised is to you'll be better going forward a closer look at the ups and downs of aaron rodgers debut performance thursday night in chicago plus will the cowboys disappointed in two thousand nineteen eighteen stephen a smith live in dallas to discuss that antonio brown and a whole lot more. It looks like in dallas right now. Remember following us is at ten eastern. Stephen max. Molly and company are there. They'll be live with tara loans demarcus ware and that crowd of fans coming up on e._s._p._n. And back get up you wanna see an incredible play. This is division two football minnesota duluth against my not state okay so that's a freshman corey carrigan. Oh are you watch. What's the cake now. He's in trouble for safety says watch these fluids he could tackle. Oh wait for the block at the end. Though where's boomer watch the blakeway sort of black right back down. I do that with bo jackson and that was pretty much summed up the wrong end of that mine. Athletic career tried to do athletically coming about five minutes away. Don't miss stephen and a cowboy hat as about as good as he's down there and donald. That'll take us through the college games this weekend and we picked big games on the sunday n._f._l.

That's indeed dot com slash get up terms conditions and quality standards apply back on get up and it was not a pretty debut for evan rogers and his new offences. He and the packers took on the bears starting the one hundred season of pro in football opening drive. There's defense all over and bear in mind. This was the number one defense in the sport a year ago that was the first drive and then it would get worse here. Comes khalil mack rogers injuries and his offense negative twelve yards in the first quarter and he was asked afterwards what he was thinking after those first fifteen minutes. What's your thought process. After the first two sessions where the plate things can't get any worse about right and in fact they would get much much better packers. I play of the second quarter play action. They finally give him time to throw and he can err it out. That's mark has vowed a scant ling bacon making the cash for forty. Seven yards and the packers are in business. Three plays later is rogers. Surveying watch the little wave of the left hand the sort of throwing it up in a school yard fashion in for jimmy graham an eight yard touchdown wham boxing out like he did as a basketball player packers seventy four yards on four plays. That's the only touchdown of the the night as the packers wind up winning and to put a bow on the game. The two teams combined for thirteen points. That's seven fewer than the first time they net which who's in nineteen twenty one demands in black and white on your screen. That's george halas who caught a touchdown it that very first matchup so that was the thursday night opener as far as sunday is concerned. Bob carpenter is with us here and you've identified. Nobody three critical matchups you want us to watch the cleveland browns and tennessee detains in myles garrett and what he's going to be able to do on this week. Vargas various should be concerned to see him speed and power to great assets of any any a pass rushers. You see right here. It's the speed the dip and written by myles garrett jeff driscoll is now not down. The field now walked on myles garrett as you watch him here. No chancellor almost pairs his arm off. Take another look. We're going to go to the power element with myles garrett because no matter how many guys they have out there tight end back office attack. Oh he's going to avoid the chip and then institute a little bull rush here all into shawn watson. This is a bad look for you. Ooh slammed to the ground markets mariota not something that you're going to have to deal with this week now the patriots and steelers steelers using more dime wash your against tom. Brady struggled allows them played more band demand coverage underneath underneath as you watch. Tom here drops back. There's nowhere to go with the football tight coverage p._g. Watt coming off the edge. He has to throw the ball away not able to complete a pass. That's on critical third down more the same two more defensive backs underneath locked in on coverage again. Tom brady going to drop back probably pressure the same lays we see t._j. Watt only four guys coming one with pressure nowhere to go with the football tom struggling again against the dime defense. Something steelers did not do in the previous meetings until last year now kansas city and the jags and jalen ramsey on tiree kill. He is the eraser he's big. He's physical pat holmes favorite target and nowhere to go always we watch him right there. Lock him down little staredown afterwards. We get an up close view. He's six two on a much smaller body him off the line to see him him playing some off coverage. You give tyrod some room to build up. Usually it's gonna crush a defensive back but not so with the speed and height of jalen ramsey is it would attract the ball down on the field. He has to make up speed in the safety over the top able to get his hand in their break the football up and unfortunately for pamela homes. It's going to be a difficult day and i like that that could be sneaky. Matchup down there greeny in jacksonville. It can be a little warm. Mahomes might be without his best player. If jalen ramsey is locked they you say he's going to be covering them all over the field but it's not something that we always see corners. Do when the sport that much anymore look kansas city. Jacksonville is a fascinating week one matchup and we will see more football well as we go but we won't forget about the baseball races. That's run the bases twins and red sox out of the final play last night at fenway damn to one with two outs and a runner at first bottom of nine that's j._d. Martinez off the monster eddie rosario will throw out the winning run or the tying run to end twins win it by a score of two one twins have been sensational of late and they hold on for the win nationally comes a big ten five win activision rival milwaukee kyle schwarzer the big blow with a grand slam tapas. The six cubs have won three straight. They've won seven of nine. They remain two and a half back of the cardinals in the national league central by the way those two teams outscored the packers and bears braves the big four two home win over the division rival nationals liner lithuania junior went two for four with his thirty seven on the season solo shot up stephen strasburg our braves baseball's best twenty three nine since august i their current seven game win streak the longest in the sports. Here's a look at the standings. In the national league braves continue continue their stronghold on the national league east now eight games up on the nats. All is not lost however for washington they will enter the weekend still holding the top spot in the wild card race. We will take a very quick time out here as we continue the trap games coming up on this weekend's college schedule. Don't get set to watch your favorite team name and tells you which favorites may go down and much more from the national football league as we will pick several of the big games on this weekend schedule back more as we we get up with you on e._s._p._n. When i was a student at florida in nineteen ninety seven the punters were not very good on the football team so i decided i was going to write an article for the student newspaper. Wondering how difficult is it to average more than twenty yards a punt and steve spurrier decided he would let me come out to practice and punt so i can see for myself so i jog out to the field was steve spurrier and he starts giving me coaching tips and he said the one thing you have to remember ratliff chick andrea just right left kick so i kicked the ball and it did not look very good but steve spurrier wanted to make sure i got the maximum amount of yardage on my pont so i could prove the point in the column and maybe embarrasses says hunter's a little bit thirty five yards was the longest that it went and i was recently in gainesville and ran into steve spurrier and we had a good laugh about about that time i was able to punt with the football team. We continue here on get up in twenty minutes a day. Get underway from arlington texas. I take getting you set for all of the week one n._f._l. Action including the highly anticipated matchup between the cowboys and the giants and here he is back in his favorite habitat amongst his favorite people stephen a smith surrounded by cowboys fans steve. I want to get you to dallas stuff in a minute but first i have have to get your reaction to the latest with his business with antonio brown. What do you make of all of this craziness. That's going on here. Well i think unless we find out that he's having some mental issues something that's going on with them or whatever the bottom line is his behavior inexcusable. Excuse for it. I think he deserves to be suspended what he does action. Since you've been an open rate has been reprehensible and i think that jon gruden and mike mayock could be should be complete supported and all of the people of the notion that they knew what they were getting. There's nothing antonio brown's history that indicate that he's not going to show up for work with the exception of the last game of the last regular regular season when he was accused of being able to pittsburgh steelers outside of that customarily what we've heard about him is that he's an incredibly hard work. Can he be devesh. Absolutely leap prima donna of course as most receivers are and have been but the bottom line is. There's never been a question about his work ethic his commitments excellent and in in this particular case since he's been with the raiders. That's all been a question more from the bad feet issue to the helmet issue to his perpetual petulance. It's unacceptable. It's embarrassing ought to be quite honest with you. I think you should be ashamed of himself and i think he should be suspended and so. Where do you think it goes. I made the remark earlier stephen eight. We've seen situations like this. It's in the past and they always end badly. How do you think this ends for. Antonio ran in oakland based based by his behavior unless he gets his act together. I could see the rate is elected to let him go. I don't i don't anticipate jon. Gruden is going to be anxious to do that. He traded in third and fifth point but he got rid of amari cooper. He got rid of khalil. Mac are not only exceptional players but individuals whose characters have never been questioned. It's never been brought into question. You got rid of them. You want an antonio brown. This is the player player that you want to so. I think that jon gruden is gonna hold on for dear life to him but ultimately unless antonio brown's behavior changes. I don't see him making it. Through the season and i see the raiders doing everything they can to get out of this contract eventually okay now. Let me have a little fun with all those folks behind you yesterday. As we were making super bowl picks the most most popular pick a month our analysts to win the n._f._c. and go to the super bowl. Were the dallas cowboys stephen a smith. What is your reaction action to that well. My reaction to that is that i respect all of my colleagues at e._s._p._n. All the n._f._l. Aficionados that we have and opposition but for the record. I want to tell each and every one of them when it comes to their pick about the cowboys. I don't give a damn what any of them say that doesn't mean anything to me but get get these people game once in nineteen ninety five. That's about twenty four years going on a quarter century. Walk around like america's team. Hot thought america america was synonymous with greatness hut thought america with anonymous with excellent but we would've creme de la creme for crying out left and this does america's team. Please sit down. Nobody cares. We have a situation where we have n._f._l. Analyst working in our state just a at what they do. I understand it and i understand looking at the dallas cowboys roster why everybody would assume they're the favorites but i keep reminding y'all. He's zona dallas cowboys. We're talking about here. Why can't go wrong will go wrong gene greening. I have no idea it could be somebody in eligible to play because they can't stay off the you know what it could be somebody with nicotine injury my goodness it coppee. Somebody gets in trouble because they're robin department store or some cologne pair draws. I just know when all is said and done dallas cowboys poopie home. What's in the super bowl like the rest of us the thought of the song. I know you can book it. It's it's who they are. There is nowhere to go from that besides to say that we are very much looking forward to the starter the first steve c._e._o. And fifteen hundred the max kellerman great okay watching stephen ate during the break. Is it more -taining than anything else. I might to what i'll do. The best i can anyway fifteen minutes and i take that's phenomenal again a reminder. They're on the way ten eastern okay. Where do we go from here college football. We have a can't miss college football doubleheader on a._b._c. on the e._s._p._n. App it's number one clemson hosting number twelve texas a. and m. in death valley alliott three thirty eastern and then it is six ranked l._s._u. Taken number nine texas at seven thirty so those are the two huge college games on the schedule this weekend and we've got a boat so we're looking forward to that tomorrow. We're going to get to those games in a minute but first out show you have your little feature here called trap games. We take a look ahead to some big boys. You think might get knocked down and we start this week to me with a surprise in michigan michigan army. It should be no surprise. It's supposed to be michigan's year patterson a quarterback. He's a fourth year senior last last week. They were great and patterson. He did clicky at three touchdowns. I'd get jim harbaugh. Don brown on defensive coordinator called a phenomenal game so michigan they should be able to handle them but you know green i logged onto the army's website and it says serve and protect but it doesn't say we will reap the brakes off you but that's what they find a way to do. Second longest winning streak in college football football ten consecutive wins copen hopkins junior at quarterback slash running back so michigan fans on the wolverines keep in mind that could be trapped gain good good one nevada and oregon oregon. What scares me here. Is they have such a tough loss last week so nick salaheddin him he became a hero not only did they get mentally they. They got beat physically so i'm just not sure that just in herbert can lead those boys back and rally the troops they say in football. Don't let one loss beach twice in my fear is it can because because nevada's feeling great they win against perdue last second field goal not perdue off and many thought that purdue represent the west in the big ten championship utah assault game winner. They were handing out scholarships after the games like oregon fans gene keep in mind. That's a trap game and how about this one ohio state and cincinnati so this is so tricky because the cincinnati head coach spent about ten years as the ohio state defensive coordinator code federal coordinator. He knows that team very very well and you're talking about cincinnati team team that won eleven games last year as well. You better believe they're gonna be mad justin field he bought last week. Everything was sweet had five total touchdowns. I get it but it's not going to be so sweet week this week. Justin feels because you've got players angry. Brian has been great thus far but this is his first speed bump is a full time head coach so buckeyes. I'm not saying you're gonna lose but it's for sure a triad okay okay. I like those picks very much now. Get to the two huge games on the weekend schedule lumbering sanchez and vilma over here to talk about these come on guys. I want to get all of your perspective but i will start start with you. Joe texas a. and m. and clemson for weeks. Months people have been pointing to this on our show as the one spot clemson might get tripped up. What do you expect expect specked clemson to get tripped up early trevor lawrence. We haven't seen him struggle since he played clemson last year. I think you'll get tripped up early again. Georgia tech he did not look good at all so how will he do now trying to rebound off of last week's woes and a._m. Kellyn mom looked like voller but i do think they handle business. We all know what do you think here. I think eighteen is a key travis a._t. And the running back for clients let's in he is one of the best back not the best running back in college football and he's gonna get the run game going once you get the run game going. It doesn't matter what happens with trevor lawrence running game. He's going to be there. Clemson's gonna roll easily easily. You think clemson roles either role you agree with that. Mark think it's their toughest test until the college football playoff but he's right. I think they will will eventually just edge out too good. They know how to win even last week they want ugly but they're all bought in either tiger heart of a champion. He's got all all the cliche. I'd the more into the superstar. Quarterback did not look particularly good in their opener. Do expect him to look much better in his second game. I think he'll look much better. That's it looked like the packers bears game last night. It was just a little ugly. He looked a little uncomfortable got. A couple different looks that first drive he saw three down fronts. He saw corner cats. He saw a bunch of defense so i think it'd be just fine. That's the beauty of college football playoff games that are taking place early in september. Another one is l._s._u. Texas l._s._u. Head coach at orange iran recently comparing hiring texas quarterback sam etlinger to tim tebow. Let's start vilma with you. Just how good is ellen. Go under is not tim tebow so let's start there. Okay allegories this good and he's a good quarterback yeah. He's not looking at all. We can talk about all the big games. Eleanor has been in his not dot had tremendous performance. He's at either interceptions and key moments or he just didn't he didn't play well period. Come out and he's one title. I'm gonna say this day m._s._a. This etlinger sure sure heisman moment game. They haven't been in austin in ten years but stadium. The ticket is the hottest ticket in the last two several years at least in austin. It's the hottest ticket. Maybe he ever melander heisman moment. You got to step up because the whole world is watching. You got haters like this man jonathan vilma. Let's go back to maryland. He threw an interception in that game big twelve championship during the necking. Let me let me give you one stat. I have to cut me off. Guard twenty five touchdown passes sixteen rushing touchdowns the only people we see that in the last twenty years tim tebow marcus mariota. He's not till march jackson lamar take video cam newton john heisman london's giving okay. Let me talk about the other quarterback in quickly mark because there's a joe borough l._s._u. Offense which is we've seen what it's been in years. Path is not been sort of a newfangled offense are they. Stepping into the new era with the good quarterback opened up the season in an empty formation. He's going progressions. He's running running dr basic check now. He's throwing the ball down the field joe brady from the saints. You know joe brady this. He's got this team clicking on all cylinders. Finally l._s._u. Has his quarterback. We're talking about that happen. Who wins this game l. s. o. l. It's who's going to win twenty four. He's gonna win tech l._s._u. What's the score twenty four twenty. One acho is excited ever seen anyone any entire fiction. He's ready to go very interesting weekend of college. Football is ahead of us. Meanwhile we will be here to recap at all with you you on monday morning on get up everything you need to know. Following the first full sunday.

The crew was collected and we're ready to go. What's the end game. What's the goal here. I i really don't know nobody has any idea sports. Minister smells like a disaster. How spectacular was jalen hurts. This is a tryout for the n._f._l. I'm i'm old enough to remember when justin verlander was done is he right now the best pitcher in the sport he might win the cy young the sheer ezekiel elliott has agreed to a six year ninety million dollar the contract extension. What can we expect from him realistically this sunday. They're going to put them out there earlier. He plays well. They're going to keep writing. I expect him to play and played pretty well but i don't expect kerry eli manning more or less than ten and a half starts for the giants killing my inner grammar nerd here. It's fewer now if you're a fan of the miami dolphins. Your team is going to flat flat out steak. I can never say anything better than that. I agree right now. Being the head coach at oklahoma is better than being the head coach of the dallas fitness the prediction for tonight packers packers packers beat the cheese good stuff so those are the predictions who made yesterday we will wrap up this this week with bold predictions looking ahead to this weekend both college and pro and we start with you bobby carpenter.

You know greenie. There's a game called speeds and in spades did you can play nil. Nil is where you'd be objective not win any books book and it's such for you.

Mason and Ireland [HR 2]

"Espn La Mason and Ireland guys doing any minute now Johnny Hecker will join us rams punter all pro can flip field like nobody else one of their one of their best weapons quarterback in high school and they often they actually lined up on a fake punt formation at least once in Carolina John Fossil keeps them guessing keeps them guessing. He's completed a few passes in the rams of course this Sunday will be involved in in in what is shaping up as a game too I. I can't remember a game this early. In the season that matched up you know a lot of times they'll we'll have an opening game where you'll do a rematch of of something that happened the year before that that's kind of what they were doing with the Patriots and the steelers to heritage franchises in the hundredth in the NFL or with the packers the bears but these are the two best teams in the NFC over the past three years they have the best records that have the best offenses they they met last year in the NFC championship game and of course there was a an infamous moment where there was allegedly allegedly night. I didn't see it myself. Nickell Robey Coleman laid a guy out on a waffle house frying pan allegedly there was a pass interference call that was missed. I didn't see it. Did you see it's debatable debatable but it did shaming play like really big bang but it didn't change all of the pass interference rules and by the way okay so Pete Carroll uses the new rule says I can I can throwdown treiguts pass interference at the end of that Seattle Cincinnati game they called on this guy clearly looked like it wasn't yeah even after the replay they refused to reverse it so now even with the new roles you're gonNA get controversy of course like everybody is one hundred percent sure if they had reviewed Nicole Roby Coleman would have been called for a penalty. I've seen angles of that. Were they might not do it. I've seen by going straight to the point call about last night right. Uh Nicole obviously smack designs boy Ono put on a Waffle House frontier take that is the best that is my favorite quote of twenty nine thousand nine hundred and I would just say there were many calls that were debatable in that game. Some of them went against the rams to the rams didn't get some calls. I think they deserved that. Call was debatable. Yeah Yeah and you know what Sunday at the Coliseum there will be lot of saints fans. It'll be a really fun environment. It was the last time New Orleans was there but there'll be a lot of saints fans wearing those Ref Jerseys and I'd say just let it go guys. Let it go over her did you did you go to the preseason games. This is the first time you're going to see the twenty one thousand nine rams. I here's how I feel about the preseason games. Yes Safeway Sean mcvay he does I I've given up preseason football especially with the rams and makes no sense to go. We're not GONNA see anybody buddy no you would've you would've seen Gerald Henderson. That would have been fired. One of Blake Bortles Yeah No. I got to see those guys on TV. With meaning Andrew Sicilian broadcast. I think the only in one game calcium right because that other game that home game is in Hawaii Him Hawaii was the cowboys game Denver was the WHO is at the Coliseum and then what support Houston Houston Houston in Houston. There's only missed one game away to pay for one preseason in game. That was a good deal but okay so you saw last night. Special teams is probably going to have a role in this game coming this Sunday. Absolutely we'll let has as a biotic leg you you saw the fifty eight yarder to win it Yup without Greg's arline the rams don't win the NFC championship last year and the line is such a great weapon and Hecker is an all pro punter every year and such a great weapon so I mean these are two teams that have figured it out you know Jim Mora who radio with not not the UCLA coach but his Dad Dad used to say you you won't win a ton of games on special teams but you can lose them Yup for sure so the rams have been really smart in investing in Hecker endure line because as they know they're covered with great punt a great kicker you're listening to Caspian Los Angeles and joining us right. Now is the all pro punter of the rams presented by. I five life Johnny Hecker Jonny Hardy Man. Hey guys I'm doing great. Thanks so much for taking the time have we appreciate you coming on and we'll we'll talk to you about. I five in a minute but Johnny I it. A lot of people said well. It wasn't a perfect Game Carolina. I think when you go down to that stadium in that environment in week Kwun and get out of there with a win that that had to be happy plane flight right. I know it wasn't perfect game for you. They got their hands on a couple of months but overall. I would imagine you guys. It's just we're happy to get out of there. yes and no I mean of course you look back at it and you're so happy to come away and be able to learn the lessons the really tough lessons that we learned in that game to look at those from a win no is it means a lot and special teams. We didn't do a good job of helping our eighteen. We really kind of one in spite of some of the efforts that we had so we got a really tough week ahead of us but to look back into be one and elderly and those lessons means a lot we just you know our defense led lights out getting the ball back on offense scored points and it was just you know the contributions were enough into went on the road like you sit down. There really hot muggy day. We did a great job pink hair my body so ready to get back into coliseum on Sunday. You talked about lessons. What's the biggest lesson from the game man? It's just about relationships ABSU special teams you work with a partner close quarters. You know what's blocking online scrimmage your relationship and distance and timing of the person blocking next to you means everything you know you're GONNA so instead. It's wide and Kinda like offense of line work. You know someone's that's why Lee on island here. You're much more fully. Get beat so I think just he's learning that kind of stuff and just doing what we can do to to stick together and just make sure that our relationships are found throughout the week and then when we go into a game we don't just kind of when you have those moments where we have left them. Judgment we sticked with our training and let muffler account takeover did Johnny you you mentioned that I I mentioned that. They got their hands on a couple of points. If I remember correctly I think in the first half they partially got a hand on one of your plants and then they something we almost never see with you. They blocked. I'm curious. Do you know right away like when you walk over to the sidelines after play. Do you know what happened to you. GotTa look at an IPAD and talk to people to figure out what happens bins when on those rare occasions when they're able to block morning your plants yeah I have no idea it'll happen so fast and I mean it's it's really a flash I catch the ball long I don't look at anybody else focus on the ball and only the ball so on a body kind of flies in front of me and you hear the Double Sud which is probably the worst sound pumping something blocking it but you know you gotta kind of look at the video boards are field and see if they show anything usually their stadium they'll show a few times but NBA You'd go back to the tape and see kind of what happened and and deadly move forward and try to erase any of those collapses you know last year's. NFC Championship game was a gigantic game it was it was somewhat controversial. There is a little bit of controversy. Now remember exactly I don't I don't remember what happened. I just know that some from saints people were upset. is it. Is it too soon to say that that there's a rivalry between the rams and saints Oh man I mean every Sunday the rivalry windsor so hard to come by and get to highly competitive teams that are considered by many that the tops and in the conference once you have to you know really kind of sack of the week it's going to be you know you gotTa bring your bring your heart hat and you fail to work and really get after it so it's the rivalry. I'm not sure not sure about that. Could we plan to different divisions but you're the last few years when we have played they've been really really big games and and it really entertaining the fans. I'm very excited for they. Call Him The Sunday. Johnny Hecker is our guest rams pro punter. He is brought to us by.

Run was already decided right arm just another work but incredible to watch him make new connections and you know we're doing to wear Waldo books and he's loving that so it's just kind of funny very very He's he's high energy and he's got some good athletic genes so he's he's been fun to hang out with but it's too early for him to know what daddy does for a living right yeah I think so my wife said actually when they were watching a game I came on the field and he said that he and I'm not and then she said a couple of other times when the offense is on the field said daddy few times so I'd be a little confused but he knows that that knowing that when the horned helmets on TV that could be daddy's Bourbon for the great job at talking to let them know that daddy daddy that's jared Garrett or if somebody else so he's learning more and more every day hey I was thinking about that. I knew I was going to get to talk to you and at least once you guys lined up in point point formation and because you have a quarterback background I know sometimes they let you throw passes and you guys came out of punt formation and it it made it appear like you might you were considering a fake punt does does your special teams coach John Fossil call that do you see a certain formation and if you think to formation might bite. Do you call it or how does that evolve. How does that happen Johnny? Oh man you're asking some proprietary information here but you know I it's it's all caught on the sideline and we go to the field and we have you know like you said it's just an offensive formation you see things in the defense anthony you either like or dislike about the play and and we had the opportunity to run stuff or or get back into the punt formation with the play clock going down and and get a punt off so and Janis this Janis a threat man. You're like you're cure your. QB rating is super high and I was thinking about this too. So have you ever ever done like it sounds like you have at least if you see a formation that you think you can you can take advantage of that. You can go for it. When what's the like off the top of your head? What's the percentage of success on that? Does it almost always work. Is it about fifty fifty or or looking back on it when you decided all right. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA throw it. They're in perfect formation. We're GONNA throw it. Does it normally work. Oh Yeah I mean if I don't short hop the ball or the wrong guy. It's it's going to work every time so I mean that's the thing we just we make sure that we put ourselves in advantageous situation especially on the other guys they usually don't you know they don't anticipate it coming so that's why the QBR is hi guys. They're usually wide open because the other guys thinking they gotTa Run Ninety downfield stopping at ten pretty tricky because I've been a season ticket holder since the rams came back to town I I tried to explain to people the transformation it in the coliseum the way the crowd was at first year and the way the crowd is now the atmosphere is great for rance games now right yeah. It's it's electric. You know it's been definitely the homefield advantage has just been and you know just a exponential curve. You know the first year we were here didn't have much data fans. Were excited. We were a new team back. you know and then we've had the success. We've got hundreds schantz aunts. I think you know it's GonNa be really special to see our you know our first home game of the season against a rematch of the NFC championship. It doesn't get better than that so we're we're excited to the impact out lasting for Jenny. You know we saw will let's kick fifty eight yarder last night. I'm wondering you you spend a lot of time was early line at practice in your own head. What's his number? What's like if you see him is like if they let him kick a sixty five yarder in your head you think he's making it absolutely one hundred percent how you will? How are you willing to go? If we're friendly bet for dollar. How how would you be willing to go independent conditions great in Greek and hit seventy? It's it's not not a joke nothing to shake greg. He's incredible during warmups. I I mean he hit at one time. Thanks sixty one and it was into the kicking net. You know it wasn't a yeah the upright so yeah I mean it was it was going don't want he's. He's got incredible talent and you know we're never going to put them out on the field plus we know he's he's a good from the distance and that's pretty it gives off and a lot of freedom knowing that wants across the fifty you know we got a shot of of getting the kickoff all right Johnny listen.

ESPN LA dodgers underway they have a chance to clinch the National League West last with victory in Baltimore Walker Bueller on the mound for the dodgers versus tie block who used to pitch for the giants for the Lowly Baltimore Orioles Orioles it is the top of the first dodgers two runners on and cody bellinger at the plate all right. So what were you gonNa tell me about Lebron oh so so. I don't know if you heard this or not did you. Did you happen to hear this. I don't know okay Chris Anes from Yahoo Lebron on has reportedly as the dodgers take a one nothing lead gone to the Lakers Front Office and coaching staff and said it is important that Anthony He Davis be the focal point of the Lakers offense this year he says quote Anthony Davis says quote. I've been kind of a focal point player my whole oh career especially in New Orleans but first off data guy like Lebron someone of his caliber go tell management and ownership and the coaches that he wants me to be the focal point is as an honor. What do you think I love it because we know what you get Outta Lebrun yeah what will make or break this season is a d. and and I think it will bring consistent about this since we try to give his number and he would have given him his number had nike not said Hey? We just need more time that may eventually happen anyway anyway but but both players went to do at the Lakers were okay with it did Nike said No. No you gotta wait. This feels very much like a passing the torch sort of feeling why tells trail time that this magic Johnson was obviously known. I'm from a really smart player but one of the smartest things he ever did was even when he was the best player on the team. Yep He would always defer to Kareem sure sure people would come to magic and say well magic. This is your second. Mvp Award winning this one and he goes well I play with the Captain Captain Right and I play with the best player in the history of the NBA he goes if all I gotta do is run on the court and throw him in throw it to shoot the Skyhook and scores you'd have a lot of assist to to defer yeah and he was he was incredibly deferential. Even when it was obvious that magic was the better player and this was taming the checking Kobe never really worked out in time shack eventually figured that out and check would like when I was doing sidelines for Keiko Shack would say to me three or four times Kobe's best player in the league right everybody taking a page out magic magic magic was clearly the best player in the league he would say all the time creams best player in the League right and he I think that kept those two guys I mean he was incredibly you use or differential. You could say respectful respectful. I think I think what Lebron is doing is elevating Anthony Davis in a really smart way and I hope he takes it and runs with it. Yeah Davis I. I did sleep with show last night. I this is the one thing I'm really excited that show well the Laker Talk Yeah I didn't. I didn't hear it. You know I didn't well how do you I listen. I drove home. I heard the coach mcvay show. I didn't make it to Lakers talk. They should go in immediately in your house. Ignore Monday night football and turn on Lakers but I was telling him this that the the thing that most excited for for Lakers fans. I'm not sure Michael and I've done a ton of Anthony Davis game. Yes this guy is one of of those people who was who is doing exist kind of like when you see a great musician. He's doing exactly what he was. Put on earth to do yeah. He is a spectacular offensive player but he might even be better defense. You saw decide about defense to right. I said I WANNA be the defensive player of the year. I think I'm able to do that. I can help this team win. The offensive end will come around but offensively. I want to hold myself teammates including looting Lebron accountable in order for us to take on the challenge of being the best we can defensively in doing so we'll have a good chance of winning every night I wanna make sure me and Lebron or on on the all defensive team and for me personally I WANNA be defensive player of the year if we're able to hold teams under a hundred points which probably unrealistic but it should be our goal. I think we'll have a shot at winning the title and think about this okay so let's just say he's right yeah that both Lebron Anthony Davis around the all defensive team and yeah okay gene who won the defensive player of the year four times do I doubt right and Javale McGee was on his way to being in contention for maybe not the first team but he could have been ribera is like a lock at at first team defensive of center because he's so good but Javale McGee was making a case to be the second team center before he got pneumonia right so now all of a sudden. You've got these ridiculous post host Defenders Yup. You've got Anthony Davis you've got Dwight Howard and if you've seen the pictures of Dwight Howard he's in ingesting. Are you saw I saw at the espy awards on the red carpet. He looks unbelievable. I mean he is he is so leaned up by the way cory Seager three-run homer dodgers lead four nothing to away top top of the first in Baltimore so it looks like Champagne may be opened for the ninth inning. The Champagne is on ice there yeah but he looks great and by the way they add Danny Green who's who's a tremendous defender and gaining green was on spectrum ranked the second best defensive shooting guard in the League and he also I just saw this of all the players you know they keep stats on everything yeah the best player shooting from three last year when he was left open so they they can constitute as open looks was Joe Harris. I'm Joe Harris who won the three point shooting contests was number one number two the whole. Mba Danny Green wa so I mean he I think he might be the biggest beneficiary of the fact that you have to Lebron and you have to the Double Anthony Davis Yeah so then somebody's left getting left open aside from Ad. I think Danny Green is the most important ship that they were able to put on the table this off season right because he's he's good at defending and he's good at hitting open threes and they're going to have open threes Casey head games last year. We didn't Miss Open threes I I. I'm really afford to the season I think that I I think everybody stays healthy. The Lakers a legitimate chance to go back to the finals and win the title and that's the way that's the first honest you know before we needed like all the young players to come. I'm of age or we need something unexpected to be able to say that now. We just need help. Flynn's Media Day wins media. Today is September Twenty Seventh September twenty twenty seven th this year. We're doing something unusual for media. You and I are going to set up camp at Media Day which is like noon that ear that day Yup and then we're just going to interview Lebron Anthony Davis Frank Vogel whoever we can get and then running on Mason and Ireland continuously between three and six thirty yes so that'd be really so we will bring you all of Media Day starting at three o'clock on Media Day this year which is Friday the twenty seventh coming up next for you see Jerry Rice said about Antonio Brown yeah not sure about this. I Love Jerry sure is but not sure about this kind of lean to Jerry on this. we got that coming up next for you Mason and Ireland. ESPN I the raiders win last night. Big Surprise surprised big yeah. You Quite Raiders Fan. You Bet against them. Yeah vid wouldn't you didn't you. I did Legrand not raiders span. UCLA into. I don't think they're going to beat Oklahoma Yeah but you're not going to bet against tomorrow. What's what's that spread you my bet again of of course Samantha go money? It's just it's just money all right so obviously they win despite not having Antonio Brown Tom and Jerry Rice was a ninety five seven the game earlier today. Here's what he said about Antonio Brown. We all play play man. We did you know I I'm going to be honest with you because this guy he contacted me and he he He told me that he wanted to you know play ball here Bayer. He wanted to be part of the San Francisco Forty niners so I I bought into it you know because I I can only take a man that Oregon stuff like that but I think this it was pretty much already planned. He had to take a different direction. first of all I I think when he asked to be released a fillers he wanted to go to the Patriots he wanted them to trade him to the Patriots and it was no way a that the steelers would trade him to a rival so he had to go a different route and he decided to come through the bay area. So do you buy it no by that. This was the plan all along that this was Antonio Brown's master plan no because in order for that to work you it the raiders would have to be in on it. I mean they'd have to go for it and and the raiders made every attempt but don't you think he was trying to get out of there. He was trying to escape. Don't you think drew Rosenhaus at some point had a conversation with the Patriots and knew that there was a potential deal there so let me ask you this guy. He's leaving fifteen million on the table to do it. Would you do that for fifteen million less for a ring for championship now he doesn't have it yet as opposed to his navarine yet. No but I mean he's going to a place that gives them the very best possible opportunity to win a ring Nafta. You're lifting millions fifteen minutes to say. Where do I WANNA go to wintering this year? As much as I hate the Patriots it would be the Patriots. Maybe they've who else would it be rammed you. You would say right now you you would favor the rams to win the Super Bowl over the Patriots because I love you for I then I'm on your side. I have to see it play out yeah. I'm on your side but I think the rams will be better if they meet the Patriots in Super Bowl this year and I lost thirteen thirteen to three patriots are so very scary. They are saving and scary. I mean you were there. When the best Patriot team ever the seventeen or not yet lost I was there? That was the tyree right so I I don't know do I think he planned. You don't really believe he planned it. You don't think he's that smart. I hope he's smart but I wonder if drew Rosenhaus. Is that smart. I wonder if you're Rosenhaus knew that that was a deal in the hand. The Patriots were lying dying in wait the entire time and the time they got to the raiders not giving him his guaranteed money which is apparently what happened that at that point ain't Antonio Brown was going to push it over the edge and hit the eject button and drew Rosenhaus already knew he was going to be a patriot. Why always thought he was going to go to the Patriots if the raiders this cutting but do I think it was like Jerry Rice's suggesting it was the plan all along? No I think he went into Raider camp. He was okay playing with the raiders and when he got there they didn't like it. Particularly didn't like mayock and he realized okay. I don't think he wanted to go to camp. No you definitely didn't want to go to camp and then forever and when he realised Oh. I don't have a guaranteed deal all right well if I don't have a guarantee I'm going annoying. You think this would have happened without hard knocks. I think hard knocks fueled all of this frigging nonsense don't you isn't this a good reason as a not to have hard knocks at your training camp well the NFL assigns heart back but I'm saying don't you think that hard knocks fueled all this Antonio Brown knowing that he would be in every single chapter of hard knocks and somewhere in his brain. He said this is good for my brand. I went to your question this this way yeah. It didn't help yeah now they had helped but no. I don't think it like was the reason I think it fueled it. I think fueled it that that hard knocks this year and I've watched every episode hardbacks ever thought was was average. I love it. I love it best. Part was Kellyanne that part of it was Caliendo on Wednesday sir yeah apparently he had one while I was gone that was spectacular with you and Michael Use reheat. He was great the old season but it Gruden you know the one thing I'll say about Gruden the thing I loved about last night and I'm not a raiders fan but I love the fact that the moment they won the first thing he did was run to the black hole in start high fiving and hugging or you know why that was the last Monday night football game ever in Oakland and by the way you're going to be in the coliseum last year or this year for the final four what will be maybe the last game ever played the last game played at the Coliseum and will be the NFC championship game. Well I hope so and but but just like Greg my right or my right nope you're gonNA see championship game game at the Coliseum final game to be played at the Los Angeles. Memorial Coliseum Greg will bet against the ramp win. Yes because that's how I win all my money inside ranch the rams you are such frigging translated the raiders this year. I don't think they do not and they certainly won't see them pay. They're both WANNA. I know they certainly won't see them. In the Super Bowl remind every taste. There shouldn't run that Raider game. I say it was the highest rated game of the weekend Monday. Didn't we run money football. Now the rights to correct yeah yeah but what if the rams rams have replay on Monday night we'll run the ramp right off the ranking. Did they do but running daily ever Sunday night game. They have a Monday night game. I think they have a Thursday night game. Yeah I think isn't the Browns owns a Sunday night game so you think the browns are going to be competitive. I think the rams on Brown rams are a Sunday night game. Is that a is that a commend the Coliseum are in Cleveland in Cleveland and that gives them a better chance but cleveland a better chance. I think the Rams I'm picking the rams to win. You're GONNA distrust me. I'm picking the ranch to win every game. Well Cleveland Shun mcvay against Freddie Kitchens. Come on man. I Cleveland Playoff team yeah. You're out of your mind. You bought the hype sober. Yeah I clay. I've got him Jay whereas watch he when he's playing. He needs to know what time it this way. He said he said today. He's wearing yeah he's going to wear and they're gonNA find him and he's going to wear and he said well. They shouldn't find me because I've got a plastic casing plastic case How's it worth two hundred thousand dollars with the Velcro band with a velcro band at least lasting case yeah seriously what the B. J. where his watch well? He's going to wear whether they find him or not. Yes they say he's being targeted. He says he's targeted because he's Oh. BJ target because he's wearing why there's nobody swear to watch right now.

Espn Mandalay hey what's going on if term microphone on their time of Day so happening people afternoon drive Mason Orland so here's the deal John Today our friend Momo Shelburne has been trending world wide Hashtag Doug Momo. It is everywhere and I think it has to do with the Donald Sterling podcast. Donald Sterling podcast has become such a sensation station wide trending insurance and something else no it's Hashtag Momo and it is everywhere. She has become an international national sensation. Our friend Mamo is a star. I what I'm GonNa do a little googling ruling here are you. It appears that the Momo that is trending is not Ramona. What what do you know about take a pop star Band O K pop in all my favorite K pop and is you know any K pop ban? I favor tamous second pop band. Oh that one with all the guys you're the with the the age of course with the guys don't no no but is so they're all from Korea in girls can girls being yes Asian girl right okay yeah it's all but it's Korean pop okay poppies and there's one with and they have so many people in these bands. It's like there are like twelve people dancing. It's like it's like in sync on steroids man and there's a band called twice and here's a little of their music so wait. That's Ramona singing Yup Ramona. I think you've got this voice. I think think think you've got this confused lead vocalist for twice Ramona. Are you aware that the word Momo is trending we she must be using one of those recycled cell phones. We asked to give away in the early days of Mason in Ireland so there is a a member of twice who is named Momo male or female female really yes. This is her. Yes I very well. Could it'd be pop as well as I guess I should do. We want to give it another trashy just yeah. It sounds like she's breaking up the the big thing about this is I think this is very fitting for our Ramona Shelburne. The nickname that memo has from among the K pop is the dance machine so we present to you ladies and Gentlemen Dance Machine Ramona Shelburne Earn High Momo. Hey you know I've been trying to just diversify right like Oh podcast caper one word video you. We need video of Ramona the dance machine now Mama when I first saw it. I thought Oh man that Donald Sterling Rolling podcast is blowing up. I saw Hashtag Momo. Did you think even for a moment that might be you awesome moments. Yeah maybe like I was like well like there's like a party or that's like Oh did I get hacked and then all my like text messages or DM's or something they are now out there and I'm in the middle of the only person that hacks you is us yeah that's true but like if somebody's like hacked me like you could totally really be trending worldwide and there are secrets in my phone right if so challenging people throwing on the garland not that's always like did I say something and you know. The story of the woman who like tweeted something horribly leaving God on a plane from Australia ended nineteen hundred right here and she found out she made a joke about HIV that nobody that was funny. Yeah like that was kind of like a half a second like Oh. I do anything stupid. Oh God did the baby like tweet something from my phone when I wasn't looking then. How did you go about researching who Momo really is? I decided that it me accepted it. Pay that it's me right. I run with him. I you know trust me. You know if it was Hashtag Mason real matter what it was it would be me absolutely and I I think I probably embed the link to that song in my bio so that people are surely confused. Well you know Momo's nickname right. I know the dance machine deaths and when I remember when I think of you I think you know what you should put on your twitter page right now the dance machine could ESPN NBA insider heider mom wife dance machine do it right now. That is an excellent awesome all all right so right now while we go on the phone Kevin Durant just will not stop what is now. It's he can't stand the circus life of the lakes to engage in social media. Yeah you know it was interesting when I read that story what I love about totally true like he apparently is very self aware of exactly what was wrong and golden state like he wasn't part of that group he totally never was and he does was Kinda hate the NBA seven-time because of exactly what we're talking about he engages in social media and social media is a worse and then he lets it affected tim but doesn't he realized that he feeds it and that's part of the reason it becomes the circus. Yeah that's the part. He is not quite owning up to uh-huh okay. The twitter bio has been updated awesome yeah good job yeah if you Mike Yeah so I think I think he feeds it. I think he's not quite owning up to it like there's this skill the other day. We gave some quote Gosh where he was like. Yeah my trainers keeping me 'cause you never never know and then the next day he tweeted you know all these are out there like you yeah right. You're the one that created it like I think sometimes it's like lack of lack of recognition of or at least owning up to like your the one who did it and like I can really 'cause like I you know how we complain about getting aggregated. Yes Yeah I did aggregate it and sometimes it's that the creation Saddam's Asian and like but I did still say it so even if I get aggregated poorly. It's like still something I said so okay. Hey Dude. I don't say anything. Do you think there's any chance Raimondo that durant plays this year. I don't think so just because because of like he literally got hurt because it came back right but like any somebody can play this year would be him I I've. I have heard the optimistic type projected. Maybe we'll maybe it'll depend on how like if you are in the missing link at he's the guy that like while they could actually east hey maybe he pushed back but like but he is in his career like I wouldn't get that. Would you know why would you risk when you just came off would you. We will absolutely be talking about all year. It'll be like you know the same the thing with Gordon Hayward when he broke his ankle the first game. You're talking about all your Swedish. I talked about the grant quotes. You know to see how that was playing. The warriors lint Lynch mob. Was Kinda like okay with it. He was like yeah you know like I understand he's coming from and he has a good relationship with Kevin and it was like striking to me. How different different his exit from Golden State was compared to Oklahoma City like the warriors are not mad at him? There's like pictures of him and there were arena they. They're going to honor him by retiring history whereas like you know he has some pretty pointed comments about you know how things were in Oklahoma when he came back. I think that like I was hoping you would have a little giving vent part of it like a rivalry here but I think they're kind of like yeah. Whatever but they you know they miss him but it's not gonna be this hate thing? They're going to be kind above the fray and all this stuff yeah. Yeah I mean think about it. Honestly is just you know kind of how and why he left left where you know Bob Bob and I talked about how he went to go visit him. The last day of three agencies it was June thirtieth and retreated start six o'clock our time so it'd be nine o'clock eastern and they went to go or with sixty six o'clock eastern six. It was three three cartons so he kind of visit him a couple of hours before he touch types. It wasn't like you know while all but but he went to see him and Kevin is told directly. Here's what I WANNA do and here's going. I'm thanks for everything and I'm GonNa go do my own thing thing and it was like I'm just like stunned at at the way that Bob and took it where you know here's a guy they gave everything that they promised to be delivered. entrees won championships together leaving for whatever reason and it really they were too broken up about it like it's like they were like get out of here. We obviously going to miss him but I think they all kind of understood because all year long felt like he didn't really ever really fit into that group like steph curry married with three kids. It would always buried with kids. It's clays play like that would've been Klay but you clean like friends with like it's not as Pachulia and his high school. Nobody's and he's also that he's a different person. Durant then I like. I don't think can't really had to make close friends on the team. Quinn quit cook was probably his closest friend quincy the Lakers. I think he's when he says that he didn't like he's like do you. It feel that way more on the way out. I'm GonNa play your theme song and the updated twitter bio reads senior writer. ESPN DOT com doing pretty good for girl Hashtag the real dance machine tax solely. That's awesome Momo.

And cincinnati as we get the first nationally televised foisting of one patrick mcafee on any football loving nation. I can't wait to hear pat tonight and it's grad can't wait to see you know i just i already texted. Him can't wait to hear him say the word nipper which is the name of cincinnati's is home stadium nipper stadium hat drop dropping the word nipper as much as you possibly can <hes> matthew hasselbeck part of that crew he's calling in in the middle of our program man who's teaching sports media class at boston college can't wait here at the syllabus is all about their and as you know one of the more if not the best <hes> backup of the andrew luck era riley also played the super bowl but i'm trying to also make this a little bit more germane to the professional football world. This guy's locked in on andrew luck. Doc is probably anybody else's and i bet you he was just as surprised as anybody else was so matthew one of our favorite guests in the history of our podcast then the show and then prior to that that had on n._f._l. Total access will be fired seahawks camp for him way back in the day. He will be on this program. Maybe it's tonight 'cause this is it we're here. We've made it be every single year i come to you and i on tuesday after labor day and i say to you what i proffered that i'm going to say to you again. This tuesday is maybe the n._f._l. Should start on labor day weekend. I don't know because college football gets the first batch of fireworks. Do you really want <hes> both on labor day weekend. I'll nano but it. There's a very large platform of football. Oh viewing and watching and people just getting back in the first bit of juices. That flow is college football field. You're missing out man. This is going to every every year i turn to you and how was that we can hold on a second. We are a couple of games into the college football season already. We didn't even discuss the way that arizona lost to hawaii last week right on the one yard line with with their quarterback. Is it trying to look for a hail mary into the end zone to tie for the opportunity to tie and deciding. You know what there's nothing there but i do see the red sea opening up. I'm going wanna try and run it in and got as far as the one yard line. That's college football for you and the final score was forty five to thirty eight. It was also a little too you early. I mean august is a little too early for n._f._l. Game so them waiting until after labor day. I think is okay so i'm wondering like maybe this is the welk we've made it that's tonight. You've got michigan state hosting tulsa tomorrow. Wisconsin starts at south florida in raymond james stadium this weekend. It's a whole host of very famous big time programs mostly taking on people that they're paying to beat up ohio state hosting a part of me.

What's going on man not much just out here in l._a. Right now i wonder if some rehearsals tang ourselves for what is going to be a big weekend for kind of kicking off a kicking off our big noon kickoff for fox sports. Okay who's the biggest. Yvonne set so far brady who come <hes>. That's a good question. I mean who is urban demanding room temperature water her and a certain inam. He's probably like low. Maintenance is possible. I would say so far fi rob stoner reggie. Bush is like one of those two right now that a hair product situation as of right now. Is that a hair product situation. Is that what you're saying. When you see right now okay okay. That'd be my issues the hair product. I'm gonna steal as much as i can from lighter mop that he's got. He's got so much stuff in there. There's not really much leftover communities so after after the game in which reggie clearly pushed <hes> matt liner into the end zone to beat you brady. If i'd put all three of you together to say one day you'd be on the same television set for a crucial venture for fox sports and college football. What would you have said well now that you put it that way rich. There's no chance against that whatever happened. I never really thought of it that way but <hes> the old memories. They don't really sit too well. <hes> and i'm constantly reminded of that. We've got a couple of segments where we were reminded of that throughout the course of the year so little foreshadowing to what you can expect to see but <hes> you know reggie bush was the best college football player that i've ever seen and and i say this all the time like i. I tried to recruit him to come to notre dame right committed. I called him. I kinda told him kind of pitch the plan we had a great class <hes> coming in that second year time willing umbrellas i four year recruiting and i tried to give my best pitch to them and i really feel i. I tell them this to this day. Had he gone to notre dame. He would have been a two time heisman trophy winner because because he would've played right away and with the notoriety and everything else from it and as good as a player he was. I think he would have won it twice <hes> but you know obviously if they didn't work out that way liner gets his teammate and kind of the rest is history but <hes> you know the funny thing about that game you know those guys are very unapologetic about what they did in order to win the game and i can't blame them but it just seems like it's so status quo for some people right now yeah so they do so. It's now out in the open right. I mean they fully admit that that was a shove. <hes> that's clearly <hes> beyond the right. It was illegal. Now it's legal. It was illegal now. It's legal you see it actually often now and i think that's that's what makes them feel like. It's okay 'cause like well. It was illegal but now it's legal. We were just behind the times back then so when you say there's going to be segments when he's trying to talk about who should be win the heisman. We're gonna call that bush's push. Is that what you say or <music> gambles and green ribbon rich. Let's not let's not green room and i know you turn that you're very familiar with so you gotta tune in to watch all what comes out from i i actually i use the term. Save the gold. You gotta save the gold. Save the golden given you gold. I'm trying. Oh look <hes> you know. Obviously you've got some talented people at fox oxygen figure this whole thing out for for yourself <hes> and then you know there is a conversation in urban actually took to his twitter account to try and tampa <hes> well. I shouldn't in say tampa down to reframe that. He never really said trevor. Lawrence is the most talented quarterback he's ever seen. <hes> walk me through what he did say and what he he means and where this all sits right now brady yeah. It was actually hilarious because i worked for c._b._s. On digital platforms side and when i was going into work after we had been out and and taping that show <hes> producer it hit me up and said hey serban thinks trevor lawrence is the best quarterback ever and i said well no chance that's that's right whoever whoever wrote that or or or things that he said that at some point 'cause it's always gonna be tim you know tim. Tebow never relationship the still very close to this day. You'd be hard pressed ever refined someone that whatever surpassed him in that light so when when he showed me the clip i'm like well i can understand how people could see see that he said ever instead of saying however but when we were on set it was very clear you know he said trevor lawrence's the best quarterback in football however and and then he went on to make his next point he didn't say ever and that's where in this day of you know media and journalism unfortunately it got misconstrued that he said ever and then people are running with it <hes> when it was actually pretty inaccurate yeah he said however what about the rest of the team so let's continue that thought right now i things i you see the best quarterback in college football because all i know right now is n._f._l. Teams are salivating over the chance to draft tool next here and then you gotta get up an oregon who is no slouch in his own right. So where do you stand on that subject yeah i. I think it's interesting because you're asking me what so you basically projects to be as an n._f._l. Prospect and what is this a college quarterback. I mean those are two different conversations right because i think to maybe a better college quarterback. If i was a betting man i'd probably say to. It's probably going to win the heisman this year and i could give you some reasons for that but then when i watched to his game and i break him down down on film versus trevor lawrence i think trevor would be a better prospect prospect for the next level so you know they're kind of two different answers but i would say trevor is right. They're neck and neck. If not <hes> you know this year has the ability in sophomore year to try to be better <hes> but but to is pretty darn good. I mean it's really tough when you watch them on film and some of the special things you could do to buy time and create plays and make you know awkward throws. It's just i mean i i. It's it's seldom seen in college football. I mean it reminds you a lot of russell wilson <hes> but obviously as left-hander even with all the talent he's he's got so oh i would say they're neck and neck edge the two right now but again i wanna see more of trevor lawrence and maybe that'll opinion opinion will change this year brady quinn here on the rich eisen show from fox sports sports <hes> yeah i mean in terms of an n._f._l. Prospect you mentioned russell wilson obviously in baker. Mayfield is a guy who's <hes> heights was discussed prior to being number one overall and then <hes> waking up dangerous <hes> pretty much every single day after that. Don't you think we need to see what cuyler maury looks like this year because if he does perform to the manner that the cardinals and cliff kingsbury hope he can perform that might make to a full-on bright bright shining n._f._l. Star prospect of say trevor lawrence's level when you say brady sure sure i mean and look it had cooking's very not been take us to head coach in arizona you know calamari probably doesn't go number one overall and and reason being he's the perfect fit for what cliff wants to do and is trying to bring due to n._f._l. It's another team. That doesn't have that sort of system. You know they might not look as favorably towards colin murray so so who knows how the draft would have worked out if kingsbury wasn't there and they didn't go all in on this vision of what they want their offense to be a compared to what it was last year but there's no doubt that people people like i mean even drew brees being short quarterback you know had started to pave the way for the russell wilson's and obviously a baker mayfield and now collar murray and i think the n._f._l. Is getting to a point where for me. I think what makes cholera berry so special forget about the height for a second. If the fact that he can make a bad play culet could you could turn something. That's really not gonna work into a positive gain and they're the biggest mismatch right now. The field is the defensive line versus the offensive of line. It's getting harder and harder to develop findings offensive linemen and that's why you see darts now being taken in the top ten because they need to find the best stud they can't affront run to protect these guys and if not these guys have to be mobile enough to be able to move out and and create some plays with their legs and so if collin murray special doing that which i think he is um you know you can then look at taking shorter guy because he'll find a way of finding space to make throws regardless of what is hype and then let's finish the thought again that spark mark this whole conversation with urban meyer however what about the rest of the team meaning clemson so what do you think yeah no. It's it's to me. It's in alabama. Those are the top two teams in college football and it's kind of everyone else and there's some teams. I think that you can make a case for every conference with with the exception of clemson clemson ascend is by far and away the best team in the a._c._c. and then syracuse is ranked now. I don't know what they'll do this year. They've lost the pieces <hes> their quarterback too so that's going to impact the moving forward but you look in the s._e._c. Georgia's probably right there l._s._u. Is a team that's going to compete in the s._e._c. West with alabama you go out to <hes> pac twelve. It's oregon and utah saw a big tennis ohio state michigan every conference. I think pretty much has two teams that are distinctly the best now with exception of the a._c._c. but i think an overall on college football. It's still bama clemson and we're probably going to see them. In the college football playoff again this year as the poll question of brady who since it's kind of dove tailing into this conversation is cristiano brady. Who do you got to win the championship however clemson alabama the field. I'll take alabama. Why just i i feel like this is one of those spots spots where it's like a revenge game for saving and it's a revenge game for to <hes> those guys are probably looking their chops and i know they're just lost you know doing those their linebacker. They recruited well and and i think they'll be able to overcome that. I mean there's there so gifted at the wide receiver position too. I just have a hard time believing that anyone who wants to try. Try to face them. In a track. Meet is going to be able to cover any of those guys. I mean jerry. Judy's astounded water <hes> rigs. You could go on down the line but these guys are all studs. They've got so i i just i think it's gonna be kinda. Revenge factor this year for them and and people can talk about the transition coaching stuff but i mean nick sabin dealt with this before telling built in the patriots and all the guys they end up losing. They just kind of replenish reload and they go in the a._f._c. east again. I i think that's kind of what i foresee happening with alabama this year. Well outbreak win here on the rich eisen show. You know why bella checks able to do that. Brady right bella check is able to do that every year blue point that just made us because he's got a michigan man as his quarterback brady. He's got a michigan man under center at sometimes shotgun i. I think you know where i'm going with that whole thing. What do you what do you consider a successful season for notre dame for your alma mater. What is a successful season that starts monday night at louisville well thirty louisville i mean i think they need to get the bad taste out of their mouth. From the semi-final i mean honestly that game game probably until we saw the national jam ship game where clubs and just wipe the floor with alabama. Shed a bad light on them. I mean the last time there in that position two thousand twelve versus alabama but that game didn't go well so there's the thought of all they're not in a conference. They should be part of the you know the college football playoff and then you see the national championship dander going okay. Maybe just clemson's that how much better than everyone else this year and so. I think for this year for them. It's about going out and kind of proven that they they do belong to be a part of that conversation every ear their schedules extremely difficult you know that at least they've got a bye before they've gotta go san auburn play michigan but georgia before then they've got to go play them down in athens. They gotta play stamper at the end of the year on the road and they've got seventeen. Come out buys and they got to prepare for and so you've got seventeen now two weeks to put in wrinkles that you don't have the opportunity to really beck adjustments to until you know maybe the first second third quarter of the game so their schedules tough. They do have a great nucleus coming back. I think their defense has the potential to actually be better than what was last year and then in book could take the steps that i think they're looking for him to take be a little bit less cautious and take some more shots down field. They can continue to open up this offense and i would say ten plus wins as expected and you know if if you if you go into feed it i do think that would warrant a taste based on their schedule what they went through being a conversation with the college football playoff couple more minutes left with brady quinn here fox sports now one one thing that i i every single time i work with coach on a set as you're about to do <hes> i always look at him and see how he reacts to watching games and the juices beginning at flown and it's never out of a coach even mariuchi right now i. I don't think he's ever going to coach again but even then you just see it in him. Urban is still a relatively young man here <hes>. Is there any sense that you get right now that he's i still just can't shake it. <hes> maybe a little bit just because i i think that's that's born to do and they co coaches. Feel feel that way as as a player you feel like that <hes> and so. I'm sure there's gonna be moments where we see this season him getting the it's don't want to be out. There and i don't know if it's going to be i don't know where they're struggling <hes> or when that moment is going to come but i think he's got a good spot right. Now i think he's he's trying to figure out his process now of how he prepares the pair's themselves for this career and for life outside of football and you know we'll become a moment. There's an opportunity. I'm sure there will in the future because he's is that good but you know and what will happen at that point. Your guess is as good as it but you know my whole thing. I just want him to do whatever makes them happy. You know i think that's for me. The biggest thing is you don't want to be working with someone who's not enjoying what they're doing and hopefully he enjoys our crew enjoys what we're doing and this transition in into this kind of different world of of broadcasting. I know he's done it before and i think he's been open and set up before you know they he do. When he stepped down from florida that he would probably get back into coaching you know that it didn't feel right and this time around maybe feels different forum because of where his family's at him as a grandfather and just where he's personal yeah u._s._c. plays plays notre dame right in the middle of the season. That's going to be something on your set. That is going to be amazing. <hes> are were you yeah. We're talking about some potential ideas for so for instance pets and then what we're going to be doing for that so it should get interesting here in the next few days as far as well we come up with i know and just if you enjoy working with urban meyer notre dame beating u._s._c. might <hes> eventually cause you to lose him off the set brady you just got to think of that would be a tough one to swallow wallow and and when that comes off the then but across i mean that's the thing is britain. I think you'll see will be better than what people think this year okay there or at eight plus when team maybe nine one so we'll see what what that conversations like. After this year all right brady i really enjoyed the chat. Good good luck with the with the new digs exist in los angeles in the studio. I'm sure you're gonna have a blast and hope that means. I can get you physically in my studio very soon yeah. I would love to say we gotta do some ambition issue well brady. If you'd like to do that i am all in. You won't talk about revenge games. I'm telling you i am ready for that. One that is going to be just absolutely amazing. That's gonna be a saturday night affair. <hes> i am all in so. Let's figure that out for that week. Let's do it good excellent. Brady quinn take care of yourself. That's brady quinn of fox sports and it's not going to be the usual avatar business. I want him wearing something on fox. Oh yeah yeah.

Note of brady comes back with you have to put a notre dame helmet on the n._f._l. Network set.

His bulldogs will kick off against the florida gators and for once richt is brimming with confidence. Both both teams are now five and two so neither is really in national championship contention but for richt. This is still the most important game he's ever coached. It's it's chillier than usual today. In jacksonville the city that's hosted pretty much every florida georgia game since the nineteen thirties jacksonville is supposed to be the neutral game site but it doesn't feel that way to richt it's in florida for crying out loud and a game called. The gator bowl is played here. How could could it be neutral rick things as he looks up at a sea of orange and blue gator fans. The gators brought the bulldogs to heal in five of their last six matchups chops. It's given florida huge mental edge and made the buttoned up georgia coach desperate enough to do something crazy at least for him something with swagger. Maybe a little arrogance something to get some fire in his squad's belly. Even if it pisses off some football purists something in other words very sorry unmarked rick lake in seven seasons at georgia richt has built a reputation as a man of faith. Who's quiet. Decency stands out in the a cutthroat world of college football for him. It's simple you win with integrity. You lose with integrity. It's the georgia way. That's what makes this right now. The most off the wall moment of mark ricks entire career as kickoff approaches rick makes his way back to the cramped locker room stands before his players and reminds them of his plan to snap their losing streak he tells them if you don't get a celebration penalty after our our first score you'll all be doing early morning runs welcome to jacksonville and the seventy fifth encounter at this site between these two bitter rivals however you need he to compete if you're going to have a real rivalry and georgia has lost as we said fifteen at the last seventeen almost nine minutes into a scoreless game with georgia face this in third and goal at the florida one yard line star running back no sean marino takes a hand off and jumps over the pile of lyman in front of him marino up over the attack. Georgia touchdown and here comes the entire team. Watch this for excessive celebration. We may have fifteen handke's amir on this one. I can't believe it was playing. This was absolutely plan. Ric decided that he has his team. He's tired lord calving psychological advantage. He's willing to give up the penalty. Nearly every georgia player on the sideline rushes. The field penalty flags this fly in every direction the c._b._s. Cameras swing to the other side line anticipating a reaction from the gators. Tim tebow florida's phenomenally talented wanted sophomore quarterback looks confused sodas tvos coach urban meyer meyer is frantically waving his florida players off the field to to avoid pointless penalties. Meanwhile rick takes it all in happily and knows his plan works. The gators are rattled as the second half unfolds unfolds. Georgia's still doesn't give away its leave their stafford marino touch the bulldogs match every tibo touchdown with one of their own and win the game forty two to thirty for the first time in years. The florida georgia game lives up to the hype. A rivalry career. That's been uneven in the last decade is incredible once again. George's full team touchdown celebration quickly gets a nickname in the media. The gator gator stomp richt is thrilled but he's created an unexpected new problem while he made the rivalry competitive again he also adjust encouraged urban meyer tim tebow and the entire florida team to spend the next three hundred sixty four days plotting their revenge approach that was just a preview of sports wars to hear the rest of the story subscribe to sports wars on apple podcasts wherever you're listening right now let's not but steve austin austin college football has officially arrived.

SF Y tells you what you need to hear and not what you want. So welcome aboard buckle up and enjoy the ride. We begin with the Mar- Jacks I joe. Tessa tour Monday night. Football football nailed it last night. When Jackson tossed his fifth touchdown pass test shouted Jackson? Five reference. The King of Pop Michael Jackson in two thousand nineteen football is the king of popular culture. The number one show on Fox. ABC CBS ESPN and the NFL network. And the mark or Jackson is football thriller. No rational person can deny the Mars ascent to the top of the NFL Matt Mountain after last night. After Lamar and the Ravens ransacked the Rams forty-five six inside Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. No rational person. Not Even Ozzie. newsome the man who drafted Jackson at the bottom of the first round in two thousand eighteen can say they saw this Jackson doing this and as twenty two. He's the best player in football and he's reimagining the way we view the most important position in sports in two thousand eighteen it would have been off. The Wall to predict Lamar would be thriller in Two Thousand Nineteen. I mean off. The wall was a nice little album. It's eight million units domestically. Don't stop till you get enough rock with you classic. MJ songs but off the wall did not not foreshadow thriller and truth is thriller wasn't Thriller Until Michael Moonwalked on Motown twenty five yesterday today. And Tomorrow I remember at the Pasadena Convention Center in One Thousand Nine hundred three Michael Reunited with his brothers and did and then did a solo performance of Billie Jean. He moonwalked and became the superstar of all superstars. That's what happened last night in La Coliseum Lamar moonwalked on the Rams House Lamar is thriller Thriller Night. And no no one could save the rams from the beast about to strike after Michael's Moonwalk. He developed a massive cult like following. Every high school in America had a Michael Jackson. Impersonator Lamar's the Ravens and the NFL's new Pied Piper is built for him and You know we built around the mall and We go in the mosque. One of the guys as competitive and accept losing I with five games left in the season. The marris tie with Russell Wilson and at twenty four for the most. Td Passes on draft day. Two thousand eighteen. Did anyone legitimately believe the market lead the League in passing. Td's CAM looms looms. Never done it neither Randall Cunningham Michael Vick or John elway the only threat quarterback to do it with Steve Young. He did it. Four Times between the ages of thirty one and thirty eighty seven. Lamar Jacks it is on track to be better. Iteration of Steve. Young Young's career didn't span long enough to be in the goat conversation. But but in my opinion young his best was the best quarterback in the NFL history. I'll take young's best season nine hundred ninety four when he had thirty five. Td Pasa Assa seven rushing TD's ten. I and completed seventy percent of his passes with only a small handful of quarterbacks completed sixty percent back. I'll take this season over season in. NFL history the MAR is threatening. Young's nine hundred and ninety four season. Lamar is GONNA throw for thirty five hundred yards thirty five apt. Td's rushed for twelve hundred yards and ten td's this is thriller all over again. We've never seen this. I joining the desk now or Fox sports. NFL analyst analyst James Harrison and Lavar Arrington Marcel. So I'll start with you yes. Is this the best we've ever seen a QB play. Ev Yes we've ever cease and I will tell you why and I. I am not a prisoner of the moment. You know I've been saying and this guy is next now for over a year and I'll tell you why because he's redefining the position we could talk about excellence. We could talk about near perfection. We could talk about efficiency but one thing that changes the entire conversation is when you redefine line which you do what others do your revolutionary. This takes me back to when I was a young officer player growing up and defensive player and I heard of a guy by the name of Lt. And I'm not talking about teammate. I'm Lawrence Taylor. Remember here rookie of the year player. Two years I two years and then also everybody everybody who was playing deion and Richard Getting these kind of guys and they were like l. -til because he's doing that differently and merging being what we thought which was conventional football into something of imagination. Lamar Jackson is doing right now before our very eyes. I've been saying this for a long time and I'm glad this time has finally arrives. Every was onboard. We'll Lamar Jackson doing redefining. That position. Definitely I can't agree more. He is a athletic as we've ever seen at that position. He is now developing to where he's reading defensive offensive schemes. He's seeing where he can get the ball out where he needs to get the ball. He's throwing the ball a lot better than he was last year. He is a generational. Yeah no talent just as we had with Michael Vick except he's out here about to crush the numbers that Michael Vick did. This is something that you're not gonNA see everybody's going to look for for this. But you're not gonna be able to find this. He is the best quarterback that we've seen so far originally I said yes but as a fan of of the game in a pure of the game it would it would not be wise or would not be good for me to go. Oh with saying he's the Best I've ever seen at the quarterback position don't change the question is this as I've ever seen Huby. Ub Play Right now. He got again looking his body of work so far. The things that he has accomplished and achieved is is mind. mind-boggling the the athleticism. The I q the maturity. I love all of those things but then I start thinking about. When John Candy was sitting there eating popcorn corn and Joe Montana leads the forty niners to a winning drive in the Super Bowl? I think what Steve Young has been able to do. Tom Brady or even a Dan Marino in the level that they played at. I is amazing as he is. Playing Lamar Jackson is. I'm not prepared just just yet to say this is the Best I've seen in terms of play. Why ever though? Why not conventional thinking again? I I think I'm a living conventional thinking because again when I look at how Dan Marino play in his primary rushing yards Marino again but is it all based upon his rushing yards on he's doing physician period combined combined or compared to what a quarterback is supposed to do agree yes. He has a set of talents. That you can't get from pure pocket. Pass I agree with that but does that. There's nobody yes we want to talk about a pure pocket passer. No He's not the Best I've seen you talking about his play at that position. Guess it's gotTa be okay. You know what is optimizing. The potential is taking you from what you have seen to what you can see. And this is like to me beyond even Thriller Ruler in our lifetime. When I've been at an age where I'm like I felt impact of something? Revolutionary this is like the smartphone back in the days days. When I had a question I had to go to the library to the dictionary? Then I had to say Ari said that this is the world in your hand. This is not assist say. I'm Dan Marino stationary. I'm darting you from the pocket. This is saying if the partner Kobus are out this I'm still ineffective passer but your cares. Here's what I I would like to say. Is this the best we've ever seen. QB play yes. And so and and I get Marcellus his point about revolutionary. But but I don't even feel like that's part of the equation because those whether it's a revolution not that'll be told later all I'm trying to evaluate is like we're ten eleven games into the season. This dude is completing sixty six percent of his passes. He's on he's only thrown five interceptions. Since he's leading the league touchdown passes he's going to be probably be in the top ten in rushing yards his the Baltimore Ravens. He was to me or clearly the best team in football. He's given this team all these things and so if he just completes this season out on the tractors actors. Yeah and I'm GONNA be like. Oh that's the best I've ever seen a QB play whether or not because the my previous standard is Steve Young nineteen ninety four and he rushed for seventy completed seventy percent of the I think the second closest him was completed in sixty two percent of his pass. I've seen dual threat quarterbacks. Come in and play really really well. He's taking it to another level and again whether he ruled revolutionizing we'll have to wait and see but I just at this point. Eleven Games here I just can't we're still. We're basing it off of dual threat capabilities. And I'm saying quarterback who can. I'm not prepared to say that that. What Lamar Jackson is doing is better than what? I've seen peyton manning at his best. I'm not prepared to say that. I'm not prepared to say Joe Montana Onto Anna at his best. I'm taking Lamar Jackson over that. I'm not prepared to say that. It's a recent see effect because we're able to look at at Lamar Jackson real time. We're able to look at him. There May and I don't want to get off topic but you can compare pass rushers right now. You mentioned Lawrence Taylor at the top of your your discussion Russian point you could say look what Khalil Mack is doing. Look at what von Miller is doing. I'm not prepared to say they're better pass rushers than guys from different Aurora and again for me. I just look at the purity of what this sport has represented and I'm just not prepared at this moment with no super bowls no no MVP notch yet. I'm just not here to say I've seen rather I rather wait. Let's change the question of because there's two quarterbacks we last year we were kind of having the same conversation about Pat Mahoney right. Who would you rather have? Lamar Jackson. Are Patrick Mahomes. That's easy for you. Come on you ride the bus you on the bus come on. I was on the bus pass that was coming to. I will say by my description by my definition which I'll give you. It's Lamar Jackson is simply this civil was this. I know what Patrick Mahomes to do. And all of those attributes I can imagine Lamar Jackson doing but everything Lamar Jackson could do. I can't imagine that Patrick Mahomes can do it. So when you make me say pick one I'll say which one can't do what the other okay. And if anybody has argument to refute that waiting is as much as I am passionate about Lamar being playing that position the best vest that he has. I'm still going with practicing homes because packing the home. Is that conventional quarterback that you're not going to be able to get a Lamar Mark Jackson everywhere you go and for me. I have a way to defend Lamar Jackson that I believe they haven't got to yet so I don't think he'll be able to continually do that. Once they get up to speed on what it is exactly all you know away. Philipson Bella check in all the monitoring is this. I'm going to do as Dick Lebeau. Hata's do we used to play against when we played against three. You know we did reference point. You hit the quarterback as soon as you go to their run read option you give that the quarterback loses all protection. That means I no longer have to wait to see if he has that ball or hose. It in my job is to smash that quarterback. Yeah and after you hit him about five or six times he's going to say you know what let's get out of that. Let's start playing. How am I supposed to play quarterback Walter my refutation would be as gear? I thought Steve Young in ninety four was that was the best I've ever seen and he did it once and he had another season. It was close. We you want another MVP. But I've always contended until Tom Brady got his six super bowl. John Elway as the best quarterback I ever saw and he was the best player here I ever saw and the reason why because and this is where I think. Pat Mahomes has a slight advantage over. Lamar Jackson Pat Mahomes with his arm. Can touch you anywhere on the field deal. And that's what John Elway. I don't believe the Mark Jackson can touch with his arm. Can touch you anywhere on the football field. Patrick mahomes makes you defend the entire entire football field with his arm arm. Stripped conversation are accuracy. It's both arms length and accuracy Lamar's more accurate than glasser in VP season. He's more accurate right now than MVP. I don't think you can call accuracy just based off completion percentage because that's a two-man deal. The receiver has to catch gets the ball. A lot of things can affect acting. I think Patrick Mahomes is a more accurate. Passer than Lamar Jackson. The look just there passing attack and and how much they feature the tight. End the running backs and stuff straight over the middle ring. The hashes had where Patrick mahomes is touching you outside. The has his own any place on the field. SAFETIES are scared to death to Patrick. Mahomes difficult and defense coordinators are scared to death. Lamar Jackson no question but for different reasons. And I think to me I'm achieves homer and I'm a traditional quarterback homer to some degree and Patrick Mahomes doesn't doesn't come close to running the way. Lamar does but Patrick Mahomes will walk. That's the difference maker for. I'm not looking for longevity at this point. I'm looking for results. Because you don't know where your longevity exists in these days. Tom Going with Lamar Jackson. The balanced because these coaches are have decided to write it up as we're going to build around around what Lamar Jackson skill sets are is the reason why I look at Lamar Jackson as being the most impactful player that I want on my team. You're talking about balancing run on pass and play action. And if you have a quarterback that has the I q that's throwing the ball and delivering it the way to Lamar Jackson as but pulling it down and running at the right time signed. It makes it difficult when you're saying well. We're GONNA hit your quarterback when we come off that ball. It makes it very difficult to proposition that because he's going to get rid of and then play action comes into it. Now you got mark Ingram running for four hundred yard game. It is very ability in the point in the military. Not GonNa take it away take it away where you just hitting him. Every time I don't care care must have somebody to have to get that though you gotta bring the team to that point to be able to make him to make him get hit at that thing. I want to add because ah is a different layer. We have some meat on the bone and another time. I talk about this. You said there are not a Lotta Lamar Jackson out there. I just want to let everybody know that most coaches are guilty of that being the reality receiver you. They're all we all saw it to being a cornerback. Running back and receiver Randall. COBB and look you know what comes to mind this summer for everyone who doesn't know what happens in practice all the time. We're done with practice or quarterback challenges a cornerback and a cornerback. Bag throws someplace. Damn he could throw Odell Beckham went to Ucla this summer into a ball I ninety yard and we were sitting there like. Wow you know. We're all the other Lamar Mar Jackson's are at other pants other positions so they are coming because Lamar has lifted the lid off of that mentality but that mentality was all being supported by close-minded conventional figures blamed yourself. You don't see a Lotta Lamar Jackson out. LAVAR ARRINGTON is back. We're joined now by Fox. Sports College football analysts Reggie Bush time now for big story sponsored by KFC's twenty dollar Phillips Order ahead it or get delivered at KFC DOT com. All right let's return to Monday night. Football where the rams totally embarrassed themselves. Losing forty five six to the Ravens. Jared Goff was totally inept. In fact fact he finished the month of November with authorities single passing touchdown. John McVeigh was label with a genius when he took over in. La But right now the rams will be lucky to even even make the playoffs since the epic Monday night showdown a shootout with Patrick Mahomes last season golf has been downright horrible throwing more picks than TV's and a passer rating in the seventies after the game we invade took the blame. I don't think it was anything to do with the effort. Lenzi I think you know certainly You know I feel responsible for not putting our players in better positions really in all three phases and we'll go back. We'll look at it. We'll see what we can do. There's going to be an element of execution that that entails as well and you know we're all in this thing together but but I feel as responsible as anybody who looks worse right now Jared Golfer. Sean McVeigh Genius this. He's falling from Great Heights Sean. mcvay saw McVeigh was on a trajectory greater trajectory of greatness than not only Andy. Ariba Bill Walsh and talk about success early success taking the team to the Super Bowl and your third year as bill did more wins than a Bill Walsh. No one's saying he is bill WAAS but you gotta understand who we was in that moment. Bill Walsh I three seasons to win six wins. Thirteen wins. STURT season goes to super bowl last week. We were having this conversation about how to stack up your numbers for perception trajectory. So now you look at a Sean McVeigh. Who's WHO's having his worst season in his third year whereas Bill Walsh has his worst season in the first year so it's going to be perceived differently even know? Shaba McVeigh has more wins. We don't know which way we don't know what steps they're going to take forward to rectify this situation. But in terms of Jared Goff who he was is this Jared Goff the Jeff Fisher version of Jerry Gulf who we all saw who was not good and we can say he's returning to form versus. Sean McVeigh who no no one saw anything else but greatness. So he's the one who's fall into most or the first question I gotta ask is what has changed in these last two years. Right because for Jared Goff off he still has the same weapons so todd Gurley one of the best running backs so that the same receivers back there so to me I think more of the blame is on Jared Goff Oh For not getting better every year like one of the things that I saw from Lamar Jackson from last year. They did what he did was he. Reinvented vintage himself this year. He knew he had to get better as a passer in he went out and did that. But Jared Goff has the same weapons. You got the same coach. You got the same play. They calling you got continuity right if he had a new offense coordinator or he has some new pieces to the puzzle on offense then I might say okay. Maybe maybe something is a little bit different. That's not his fault very similar to Zeke. You'll Elliott which everybody's asking what is different. Why is he not playing at the same level? Well Oh Scotland hands not there right. He doesn't have the same play caller so there is a little different change in the scheming. And what's more important than even the coach on Assad. I is a offense allied now. Last year his office allies started every single game together to a super bowl. Run this year. Four different lineups already in short season. They've they've been mixing and matching up front. If you WANNA play the argument of nothing's changed the most important thing change the guys up front now protected but to that to that. I would say that a quarterback back is always the greatest equalised right. You got a battle line or good offense align you can get rid of that ball fast right you can dial up some things that protects your offense offensive line right now. I was at the game last night. They was channing. MVP Lamar Jackson Hole Stadium. WHO's more it was more popular when you play your ladder? The more popular truth me easily though Bush. So I'm GonNa take your argument. I'm use it against you. Go where the the running UNIM- bags position has been diminished so much in the national football league. The reason why I'm putting it on McVeigh is because you have a lot of elements that you had last year now not having the line the way that it needs to be right now currently is suffering and the running attack their twenty fourth and the running attack they were ranked. Third last year has C. J. Anderson and you had todd Gurley handling handling their business into running the game and you know just like I know you have a popular running back played away. Data talk early plays in the way that. Cj came in and played it takes a ton of pressure off a jared Goff perform. I put this on the coaching staff. Because what regardless of anything even with Lamar Jackson you have a you have to. Other weapons happens in that backfill. That can run that ball being able to run the ball brings a lesser of a pressure to push the ball downfield and control the time. I am a possessions. The way that you do. It's a lack of running game and I put that on somatic as the bag though Jerry Goff has a bag. He's the highest given. Yeah that's that's that's a decision. WELL THAT'S A. GMC coach is this is. This is why it makes. McVeigh I think they pay golf. Because McVeigh's ego and we all gassed up McVeigh's Ego all last year. He's the greatest thing since sliced bread. He created Jared Golf. Go ahead and give Jared Goff more guaranteed money than anybody in NFL history and is blowing up in Sean mcvay race face and so to me is both of them. Look horrendous mcvay look slightly worse because he's part of the decision making that that again I was never nothing compared to these football coaches but I was just never all in on Jerry Golf. Great offense line great run protection looks good looks looks like Sam Bradford running a throws and so I didn't like the decision to overpay Jair Golf that's a byproduct up. Sean McVeigh Sean mcvay now. Has You know revealed himself to look no different than Zack Taylor. And any of these other guys that got jobs because they look like but you paid ager back early right. Yeah it's weird. I I agree with you. I don't have the same sentiments about Sean. mcvay I think Sean mcvay is a great coach. I think Sean McVeigh has done on a lot of great things one. Let's be real. We don't know what that would tug early. Is He hurt. Is He not good tar girly once before I remind people had at twenty five of twenty six games under a hundred yards before. Sean McVeigh even said hello to todd. Gurley what was that. That was Jeff Fisher in the saint. Louis it was Ramsey intolerant girly. Now we're back to that Todd Gurley again just like we're back to the jared Goff who was own seven under deficient. That is the missing. So if you look at Sean McVeigh. He is inflated those guys to levels where they both got paid but then those same guys are not performing. But we're going to blame. Sean McVeigh I only say Sean. mcvay looks worse because he was the genius. WHO got everybody here? But unfortunately he can't keep you there if you don't want to be there and I don't no no what's up with Jared Goff and I certainly don't know what's up tiger. We've seen jared goff struggle when he's had to be the one to win the ball game. You know what I mean last last two years they were great when offense was hitting all cylinders when Todd Gurley was had to play action because you had to respect the run game. Now it's on Jared Goff in the pressure Israel.

In fact it's the best start to any season for Lebron since he came into the League. Meanwhile in Dallas Luca donkeys is putting up crazy numbers in his sophomore season. He's even starting to draw. Lebron comparisons comparison for just how well rounded. He is when you consider what Lebron is doing as thirty four. And what Lucas doing at just twenty years old. It's pretty amazing. GonNa see how similar they are this season. Lebron Luca are sharing the ball as well as they are. They are the top two in assist. Are The question here is is it's twenty year old. Lucas Dunkin's more impressive than thirty four year. Old Lebron James. No no I'm going with Lebron James Right now now. Much respect to Luca dockage dockage is doing but the game plan and I'm not just talking about on the court I've talked about to the organization the game plan and how we're going to endure this Barrett down differ for Luca than it is for Lebron. Let's be real expectations. Were Dallas Mavericks. This whatever the hell the Dallas Mavericks can find out bigger out and do versus win in a championship restored. A roar of the Lakers brand and Lebron's doing that would've shared experience. You Got Allow Anthony Davidson others too shy shy but primarily Anthony Davis and we all know how chemistry comes into it could be a tricky thing when your asset for no reason as is an asset. But he's not allowing Lebron in a one on one battle versus Luca Danni kitchen his year to flex fully because it was out there by himself and having to put up those numbers. You wouldn't see the suppress score. The brand is now scoring at the same rate he could if there was. No Anthony Davis there where Lucas on the court and look we know zinc apiece but still coming from. The injury is not the same just yet. Hookah has the keys instead. The floor is yours and I think that's a different experience. Therefore you're going to see even even better numbers for me is who's been here. I'm GONNA say is impressive for both because expectation level of Luca coming into this year. Wasn't these numbers by four. It was. He'll take a jump based on last year but the jump that we're seeing now and probably not too heavy expectations of where the Mavericks would be. I thought the the Mavericks Compete for that Seventh Eighth Position Coming into the season for the playoff. Just because of a healthy an improved down cage and also an approved proved lineup here. Here's the thing that you keep in mind. It's just like when Michael Jordan play. We get so accustomed to his greatness that we don't appreciate the Bron Ron James and what he's doing a year seventeen you know in thirty four years. Oh sometimes it gets lost in the shuffle. Luca is the shiny new toy. Yeah okay okay. So he's going to be perceived a little bit differently because what he's doing he's the shiny one now we look at it and say Is he the next the best thing because what the bronze doing a year seventeen is impressive in itself. Now that doesn't take away from what Lucas doing an ear to and the position Russian and what. He's put the Maverick. Because if you look at both of these two two men parallel the impact winning by scoring the basketball rebounding plan. Well I'M GONNA say Defense Defense is better on the Bronx but assists wise. That's the key to both of these players to me. So they're both both impressive in their own right but it's a little bit different for Lucre because we didn't expect to see this year to from him look I. The question was framed for thirty a four year old because the seventeen year deal is is a hard thing Zach a hurdle to jump over and so the the reason why I'm going to Lean Lucas as Carl Malone I think won. MVP thirty five. And so I've seen someone at thirty four thirty five player to eat level. We've never seen a twenty twenty year old play like this ever and includes Lebron James. I'M GONNA look him up. Twenty thirty based ten rebounds. Nine point eight assists. We've never seen this from a twenty year old. It's incredible and and to to your point Marcellus about Anthony Davis I think Anthony Dave is like and I'm a magic Johnson homer. I still think he's the second best player of all time. But he had the great benefit of plane with Kareem. And I think having Anthony Davis I'm not calling Kareem but I just think that creates floorspace that creates opportunities easy assists a bunch of other that Luca could donkin playing. Were pour zing. That ain't a D.. I think having another great player alongside you actually benefits Lebron and makes him able to do this at age. Thirty thirty four. I think what I didn't expect this from either one of these guys but but what what you're saying Jim kind of what I agree with if I had to bet before the season can together. MVP sees I would have said yeah based on his chest based on our. Here's even in seventeen. What I could Luke Dhaka's at twenty two years old? have his point jumped nine. His assist jumped four. His rebounds jumped two and a half and two and for Dallas to be winning winning and like who knows where they're going to end up at the end of the season. This is mind blowing with this twenty year. Old Kid is doing and they're not empty. Numbers is what you're talking about Habitat Lucas putting up now. Let's peel back a little bit. We know the Brown played in Eastern Conference. He was able to take your team. Two thousand seven to the final. Yeah okay okay. Lucas Path is going to be a little bit different. Because he's in the western copy at heart. There's GonNa be a lot harder so we can't judge based on Kennedy's his team to a championship. Because that's it's an unfair comparison based on the conference teams that Luka has to go through compared to Lebron but that is an accomplishment in itself or a young Lebron James at that time get the cast of characters he had to the final. Now let's compare it a little bit too. Luca Kenny get his team to Western Conference finals. Okay that ah now you can start to look at the parallels a little bit more in regards to putting up these numbers because again. These are not empty. I saw Luca last year going going into preseason in China had an opportunity to take a look at them and my thing with this young man has maturity about him in a news going to be good maybe not as good but I said once achieve figures out the speed of the game how to get by because he's not athletically gifted but he has a savvy bottle. He figured that out the second part of his rookie year. And now it's taken on the sky's the limit for this young man now. He has a hard a path to take because of the western conference. So it's incumbent upon the Mavericks to build off that Roster Bo what he's doing now at twenty years old the legal change yes. Three point boy is more relevant than it was when the brand came McCain point three attempts three point fourteen when Lebron's second you compared to the thirty three this year. Okay that's totally different game. But Luca in itself self. You can't take away what he's accomplished right now and what he's doing in regards of impacting winning for me. That's why I don't WanNa go apples to apples. Apples the numbers because the Bron- o-for-5 at twenty years old is averaging twenty seven points for shooting threes. Okay I'm GonNa let that go. The thing is what we're doing is overcompensating. What is impressive to us? which is a meiring respected? We're Lucas doing because we really undervalue. Oh you who was as a prospect. Now that's on us. Not only him. He came over here. Said Wow it's easier to score NBA. Because I've been playing all we had it was big man clogging the paint and zone. He's like this is easier so trust me if you don't think these points are coming. They're coming because the game's going to slow down. What I love about about Lebron is there's no surprise and he's still meeting if not exceeding expectations with the adjustment of someone who can carry the load? But I'm I'm going to share the load so I understand that at the Davis gives you moments off because you could just give it about Anthony Davis but when the moments on Lebron he still doing doing something at thirty four with the mileage that he has at thirty four. That's for means more impressive than Luke. What was I? Don't have the numbers in front of me. What but Michael Jordan was pretty good at thirty four? He obviously took some time off. Didn't have the miles on his odometer. That Lebron does I just. I'll go back to a I thought there was a possibility of Lebron being the MVP a small possibility. I was not someone I did not expect this but it was in the back of my mind. Lay You WANNA be critical. Lebron Watch out because he could put a clown suit on everybody and he is reluctant and refocus. But but I don't know where this kid's landing point is if he can do this at twenty years old right whereas going. Where's where's this going right? Thirty Point six at twenty. I don't think Kobe did this. And he played shack. And so maybe there was no opportunity but who does this at twenty. This may average forty one year. I don't know this. He's a bit more to say he's the first player player. That's ever blow my mind more than Lebron James. Well he's a product of what the game is today and you can't be mad at everybody. Wants compare what back in the day. This was so what these approach these young men right now. They're playing the game playing at their time so now they're benefiting from the new rule changes the three point line freedom of movement. You can't be mad at that and and for him to be able to come in again. His maturity level is what strikes me because at fourteen fifteen sixteen he played against Rome in Okay and Europe. He came aim here understanding how to play the game mentally best. Lebron and Luca has is the mental side of the game that allows them to be effective at thirty four and at twenty years old. Reggie Bush Lavar Arrington her back time now for Dardanelles question of the day our takeaway homeboy. Yes sir go back to some Monday night football opposite I was at the game last night. I ain't got a little heated after the game. He's Sir just a month ago. Two rows move markets Peterson raise gave a mobile first around Jackson. They could get pro bowl. CORNERBACK Jalen Ramsey. Last night peters got surveys with inception Ramsey big highlight with his brutal effort on the tackle of Mark Ingram at the end of a long run after the game fans got heated. And I hear Peter's giving Ramsey the business I want to ask you guys did the round screw up trade for Jalen Ramsey. Yes in my opinion. ooh Wow jalen Ramsey. I think they're going to have to overpay for him. I don't think he's dead valuable. Oh no they messed up getting guy. He's special one especially especially in himself that alone. His impact is being for the rams despite what we saw last night as team ever deal more in great for the Patriots. It's like what we saw the same Ravens Ravens offense. They got bombed Morris as well. So here's the thing. This team was leading the League again. NFL scorned defense. Once they acquire Jalen Ramsey before they had issues bingles and hey man patriots play Klay bombs to and then all of a sudden historical three items. You've got to be you play again. This is bigger than Jalen. Ramsey is bigger than the. Where am I ain't nobody daughter? Go out there and pay our quarterback jared Goff that must damn money and then todd Gurley deserved it but has he rounded since that point. So don't this is safety. NFL replay. We talked about yesterday. You do something wrong the wrong idea when you finally do something right. We still think is is wrong because there's so much long before this is not about daily Ramsey's about they're mad at Jira goal early. Don't Jalen Yeah. I'm not blaming blaming Jalen Ramsey on his jalen Ramsey is still a dog on the field. Obviously last night didn't really showcase that but thank God. None of us are judged based off a one game because having was wouldn't be here where we are right now and I still think Jalen Ramsey is a great talent but if you play in his league long enough. It's only a matter of time before you get got. It happens to everybody. Everybody already has some of those games. Right Marcus Peters play great last night and I love. I love seeing the smoke like that. Because you don't see that anymore too. Many Guys WanNa get autographed jerseys. After games it won't be buddy buddy. I love seeing every because here you did too. We got the Jersey we see another marcus. Peters highlight Pixie. Talk about about it went. What does Jalen Ramsey? I hear the team did well against the bengals and some of these the other garbage Pittsburgh Mason Rudolph whatever can I get a highlight moment from Jalen Ramsey at some point. If I'm watching my Wassef who's a Eh highlights day. I'm a summit up. Jalen Ramsey is rocky out there he beat Apollo creed. You know what I mean God. The accolades You want to get paid. You feel like you to star but you looking at a dude and Marcus. Peters whose clubber Lang and he. He's hungry angry that do try. He's he's out there you can tell. He's playing with the tight would of boulder on his shoulder right now and so. I don't know if that's spark. Mark leaving the ram sparked him playing and feeling the way that he's filling. I wonder will it spark and make Jalen Ramsey. Step up his his level of play after being called 'cause that that was almost like he Sunday League Randy got called down. He's Sunday you got caught and when you're ultimate competitor in a do who like Marcus. Peters does what he did to Jalen right there in his house right which was my former house. You got to respond. You can't be no quiet church miles else after that you now see. This is why this is why we can't get caught up in the smoke son any of all elite and receive on Modem Baltimore Ravens Ravers have fifty four yards and wasn't even their best receiver Jalen Ramsey. Would he supposed to do on the football field. He is not a part of the front seven. Don't throw today why we didn't ask them apportion. Don't put this. Oh Jalen Ramsey shutdown what. He's both do. y'All want him in the run game. They're shutdown these five all these numbers that one no Jalen. I'm saying this only feel XS and os wasn't Jae Revie to since he's been traded he has to interceptors interceptions peters got traded. He has three interceptions. y'All lose some but still three Ailing the only reason they got into it after the game we all. I'm not electing evidence. If you don't like been getting getting underway. He was replaced right then when he got to pick. He's calling now Jalen on the Ceylon. Is it after the game. Jalen Abe rough. I'm right here. You Ain't gotta say across the field. And then they went at it. But that's still unclear thing. Marcus Marcus Peters was scared now. It's not about scared affordable. Neither wanted to fight only one do separated them. One person on any large gay demeter upset is good as this team is and listen. I want to defend job. But it's going offend you. I'm not trying to be in Baltimore over Los Angeles. I'm sorry so Marcus Peters is upset. He's in Baltimore. I'm balling and I like my team. But I would rather be ball. Say Well let me just say Casey they got flights from Baltimore to La. That's fair when this man goes and collects a super bowl ring no flight to go catch the Super Bowl. That's a toy. I go good points. Take in and be a real. The thing is Jalen is art. WHO's a better corn island? We got smoke. Take Jaywalk who wouldn't overnight. I'm saying hey jay live. That's fine but I just. I can't wait to see Jalen Ramsey Ramsey Ramsey involved with winning. Yeah because that's what the game is about. He's about a corner. They wanted Alex. They should have beaten a win win win and he played out. The man is on the best team in football right now. Yeah I know it looks like a storm. That's GonNa win the Super Bowl. I've never seen jalen rammed part of that. What I've seen? Jalen Ramsey apart is discord dysfunction laying down not playing games. Get me up out of here and now here here. He comes to Los Angeles. Hey that's great. They got some great numbers on defense but they want squat and they fallen apart jalen Ramsey until he's a part of a winning coach consistently and he's a part of their culture. Marcus Peters got a three Baltimore who the Baltimore. With Joe. flacco transitioned to Lamar Jackson. You think Lamar Jackson but this whole we know marches who mark speed is. He has something to do it. I respect at that. But don't put the losing of the Rams on Jalen Ramsey. I'm saying you're doing the flip to over correct for Jalen. Ramsey is a better player but like this. If jalen Ramsey played for the ravens right. Now thank you wouldn't be making the plays Marcus. Peters as mega the join again by James Harrison Bar Arrington time now for the most of this conversation of the day are let's hit the Dallas us where the cowboys are preparing for Thursday night football class for the buffalo bills while the world wonders how committed Jerry. Jones is a head coach. Jason Garrett I say say not very committed I say Garrett is the Turkey that could be carved lake Thanksgiving night if the cowboys lose so the three bills in fact I believe it will be fire fire Thursday night or Friday morning if Dallas Loses to buffalo on Sunday in the wake of Dallas's thirteen nine loss to the wounded Patriots Jones Laced Into His Dallas coaching staff. He said the cowboys. Poor performance and special teams was a direct reflection of poor coaching today. During his weekly Radio Interview Jones was asked whether he considered firing Garrett after the Patriots Gay. The answer is no and But When your general manager curve which I am those coaches are out there at my Ultimate decision is very much within my round of Purview if you will basically Not only be standing there as an owner but be standing there as the general on a manager that staff gathered again with and so it's People seem to think that it's Particularly harsh to Have criticism And they think that when you Look at the side of the field and call a job. Well done that might mean that. That's extraordinary criticism of the job that you've done Over on the other side of the field. I don't hear any part. aww Jerry's answer as Garrett a safe for the rest of the season I hear it as Jerry wasn't going to fire his head coach during a short week of preparation fire and Garett after plane lane on a on a Thursday makes much more sense. You have extra days to adjust and restructure the cowboys fall to six and six on thanksgiving. Jerry will be serving Garrett's body body parts across the Dallas area Friday morning. That's a pay your mortgage guarantee all right guys marcellus rolling will geer be fired if the cowboys loosened loosened bills on Thursday no absolutely not From one cowboy to another cowboy and Dak Prescott who even disagreed with his owner. Who still yet to pay humor by saying that? Their loss last week to the New England patriots was a setback and I agree with Dak Prescott. It wasn't a setback. And even if they lose to buffalo so who is a good team only three laws. That won't be a setback. Losses Aren't setback. No because it's all about what does it change in terms of your opportunities. Think about it. They have even if they lose the buffalo and half game up on Philadelphia which means not only can we still win our division but we also still win the Super Bowl. WHOA but it's a setback in not set back in traditional terse? Set back to the tune of Jason Whitlock and others say fire Jason Garrett. He's a lame duck coach which that means postseason success. As Stephen Jones actually came out record say look going judge ourselves based on what we postseason wonder. If you need to get to the postseason postseason first before you can judge. Oh you do so. This is a team still on pace to make it to the postseason. You allow him and his team the opportunity the either go out there and make some hay or go out there. Hanging themselves after the buffalo game is not the point I agree. He's not fired thirsty. But I will say this. I think he's already fired at the end of the season matter. What's in November? Would come on. He goes deep into these playoffs. Here it gets to appoint a NFC championship game. Appoint then he is gone. I believe he is fired now without that happening is no way he can keeping you can morale he doubled down. I'm Jim but coach has got the ultimate call. Whatever they're out? There coach across the way did a great doubt. I thought it would taught the Bible say thousands not covered another man's coach. That's what he was doing. Cover the mask. Oh okay do I think he fired at the end of the year. That's very interesting. I agree with you guys in terms of he doesn't get fired Thursday but it certainly it will happen Friday it will oughta be around a facility. People still be dealing with the Sierra Fan and all that stuff and he'll be able to clear out his his office office and peace and quiet. Nobody sitting here given what are you right. That's that's real. I think if he loses to the bills he's done and here's yeah I do because here. We say lame duck coach. You're saying base it off of the postseason. You're saying at the end of the season. Now that he is speaking of Jerry Jones is speaking out and clearly showing a dismay towards the way the coaching is. I think that it now sends a message that you you can only go so far with the guy that you had leading the team again. We had the conversation. If you have a group of players that can make excuses based off of what the owner slash. GM saying about the coaching staff. You've already lost the ability to be able to effectively league team and tell them what to do that. A ship has said I'm never going out. which way right better dead defriend tomorrow? Let me tell you what this lose your job album your day. Oh look if you can still go where you WANNA go. What's your aspirations? Were in the beginning of the season. What your goals were which is win? A Super Super Bowl. How is this fatal to lose? I can tell you know what you want. But it's not. This is nothing but a a moment that you have to respond to this is basically we all going to hang and our Uber's coming and they right before we're seeing one minute it cancels y'all go. We ain't going nowhere we can't do and I was sitting there saying this island. Another thinking Uber. Talk to trying to raise. You know what we got next week and we sit in the first place and guess what we still. Don't get to this team who your circumstances. Don't change you seven giants and I'll go back in time when they were struggling to make the playoffs and they ended up making the offline beating a man. Tom from the Saint town called. They try to run out of town a couple of times before. Okay respect hear anything you have built up the versity. That was him fossil that we love against. It's all lives but we hate when the odds are against us. This is the moment the odds are against him. But this is how you set up a moment of against all odds and they come out. Victorious played out out. The movies now has paid a super bowl caliber football team. He does opinion and they can't win the big game now. Why would you expect? But they're making the play offs because size horns. I I would agree with this thing. And if Jerry Jones said anything like like that but Jerry Jones the team yeah and Jerry. Jones isn't saying hey all our goals are still out there. This isn't a setback. He's not saying that he's saying this. This is unacceptable. I didn't like the coaching and there's and he's undermined this guy's ability to lead this team and so we can all have our opinions. I'm just looking at what Jerry has done. He's undermined Jason Gear and so if they lose to the bills on Thursday who. Oh he doesn't think is as good as the Patriots and so he's like we better win bills game. What's HE GONNA say? Do you think Jerry Jones believes that Dallas can still the super bowl this year. No but I don't care about that but if he if he does care that they can't win the super bowl this year and he's playing super bowl dollars. Then why would it be rhetorical to say he's GonNa lose his job because they saw jerry can also be surprised. Jerry can also be wrong. Jerry Jones was wrong Jimmy Johnson. So so if I'm using Jerry. Jones is rationale Wuzzy. He hired him. I don't know what he did. It take for him to win a super bowl. No Jerry you should not dismiss Jimmy Johnson Ford Credit. That's what I'm not into those details. The point of it is if that's your rationale to get rid of a coach who just won two super bowls that fast and then rushing out to say. I'm going to fire this guy before we lose far less less but more than bill parcells before less Far Orleans why not finish this season is my conversations giving up. Hope he does not sound like he's lost. Hope he's lost faith. Ah which you have lost the team and you're thinking you're leaving your team. Say I disagree with you Jerry. Jones Dak Prescott went on record. That's smart because he knew I. Hear Ezekiel Elliott. I agree with the owner. Where you ain't got a contract you listen? Listen smart with the with the head coach because that's the man ever. I mean that's fair that's fair. It's a valid point. Would you looking at me even disagree with you if a AH disagreements jared. I'm a agree with depot lear when he leaves disagreeing again Telling you all the team is with Jason Gerry. They even arts responding. It pushed him back because they are the reason why he's on a hot seat zt to begin where they play well enough to keep the man off the hot seat Jordan. Look if I was a player I would be with Jason geared to because once Jason Gears removed. All he does is like now the burden is on you. There's a new coach we. We ain't got no excuses. I found me a new coach. Coach is on you. Guys in the next people will be put on blast. Is You players. If I'm DAK PRESCOTT I want no parts of anyone saying one thanksgiving. We're six thousand six quarterback really isn't that good audit we got somebody could say to with locking Wiley joined once again by. Hi Jane Harrison Lavar Arrington. Let's return to the NFL where Baker Mayfield went from snapping at reporters to throw in some darts. The browns won three straight and during that span mayfield is throwing seven touchdowns to just one interception as it stands right now. Cleveland is just one game out of the play offs and they still have two games remaining with the winless. bingles are the question question. Here's you bind the browns turnaround. I'm buying a turnaround obvious it really. But I'm not buying the making the playoffs so benzel how you want to parse those those words right there but basically this team is going to look better the second half of the season they are than they did in the first half of the season when they were two and six top ten in multiple offensive and defensive categories if you talk about scorned total offense points per game to allow Total D. Physics Center. But it's not gonNA be enough. I feel but I respect what they're doing. They found a different formula. They turned a corner in terms of the futile efforts and production that we saw before. But I think it's a little uh-huh bit too late money back. I'm buying your old. No money combine it so they were losing to the dolphins but they ended up beating Dolphin. That's the dolphins. Dolphins Mason Rudolph Gate in foreign assumptions. You this team right here. We can beat a team if we get four all linemen right here okay. You're in Buffalo. A little came in there. They probably just surprised him and got him by three points. And they didn't even really fee Frank Gorlic they should so I'm not buying this at all. They're going to go up here to Pittsburgh and they're going to be back to Cleveland browns. We got duck at quarterback. And that's what we do. All I gotta say to that is you gave me all the teams they played against. Therefore you're not buying it. But then I tell you the teams they're going to lay bengals BINGOS. steelers car are knows that you're saying about the steelers. I'm not buying it that. They got the quarterback there. There is the best is to do that. He's he's Nice but the point is if you're gonNA use schedule against them you gotTA use schedule form. They also got to play the Ravens. That's going to. They beat up on the on the Ravens. Now that's one of few teams that has success. You be buying it. I'm buying it and only I'm not I'm going to buy it until I don't buy it it anymore. Because they have the talent that that represents them being able to change it at any stiller's this weekend they're having lost is to the steelers yet and and again I'm buying until I'm not buying it anymore. Because again they have the talent that is representation of a team that should have two and six but being at three and since we turn says to me that maybe for one strange moment in time we could. I'd say a team had an opportunity to start to jail. I mean God forbid are fast food industry our fast food society diety that a team doesn't have an opportunity to learn one another and improve as a team moving forward so I'm buying it until I'm not. I'm not going to buy it because because I think this weekend I think this weekend is Mike Tomlin. I'm going to get him. I Mike Tomlin won't win coach of the year this year. Uh but he may be is doing the best coaching job and I expect their defense and Mingka Fitzpatrick. TJ Watt and Bud DuPrey to put something something on Baker and and the Cleveland browns weekend duck. I Mason Rudolph was killing them. I think going to hodges is they had no choice. I don't think he's going to hurt him with the turnovers. And I I just think the steelers defense and Mike Tomlin is GonNa have this team on at the ultimate level emotionally. I think it stops this week and once they lose to the steelers. It doesn't matter what they do. The rest got everything to fight for number one Allo all this. We noticed six seat. I got a lot of friends over there. So it's sort of like we turned French. Sometimes when I talk about today handily beat the browns Nebraska browns handily beat the steelers I inner and and they have more than enough reasons to play hard core the steelers. This ain't no rough burger out there. There's no James Connor for sure jaw. Sean Fitzpatrick got there. My point is just a push back. Can you not that point was not my. Here's my point this go ahead you can get some face. This is why they turned ended around three at home and now the three zero at home owner last since week ten they WanNa last week to you know what Baker Mayfield has been doing since they went on a three game. West less commercials only second to Lamar Jackson and serves a passing touchdowns. Think about Audie. So y'all WANNA say turn around putting Baker on Lamar's love we love our show. We always the handlery since we acre Becky to Lamar Acre the head Baker Mayfield. ARGH DUDE say second. I don't think that the browns are going to be fueled the steelers dealers are I love I love I love that Stiller's about away. I love that. You don't say steelers. You say steelers alert because you you kind of just Lurs. If you don't think that the browns are going to be pumped up play in this game you are sadly oh me. You're sadly mistaken okay. Let's say this there. We have to highly emotional team one coast by Mike Tomlin. One one coast by Freddie Kitchens follow talent. Which one do you think all of the town we overcharged and do gum follow the tally? I'm following the talent to tell you they've been doing nothing for. How could Jimmy's here? We'll get to Lamar Jackson a second. But first WHO's your India. Surely the guy can't be me really big dummy today. You're here go to person said if the Dallas Cowboys Lose News on Thursday Jerry Jones will carve-up Hasten Garrett and serve him to the Dallas area nephew. You ever stop thinking about food. No let's return to the march on his main first appearance on Monday night. Football was one to remember. He threw for five live. Touchdown passes this week. Newmar faces the top defense in the NFL. The forty niners Marcellus. Yes you think. San Francisco can slow Lamar Thriller Jen. No I don't think they can. They have one blemish one loss and that was to Russell Wilson who Oh same style of play. Here's a mobility but not even as is good and as exciting as more Jackson Tooth. Remember Caligiuri Gate Him Fits second-half especially perfect second half against the same for the United Defense. So no I don't think that could slow him down. I don't think you can slow me. These only hope to containing uncle Jimmy. Hey you have any thoughts on the Mark Jackson unlike you nephew. I'm able to admit when I'm wrong. Aw last year I came up here and made fun. Lamar Jackson. I said he was playing candy. I said he was making fun. I said he was calling plays look like he's saying laugh now he just I'm a- stirred up in here he he just fairmount. Airman you say is Michael Jackson Thriller Michael Jackson Thriller. OJ Simpson coming out with a self entitled album. Call all killer. It's unbelievable this is Dan. Fairytale Lamar hold auto clarify Lamar Lamar Jackson's a fairytale. Lamar Jackson is a fairy tale and at the NFL. Don't stop lying to these little black kids. Look okay man. They got every little detail veon Jenkins in the in the City Jeff Causey Outrun a dog and a brick. He can be a quarterback in the NFL. That's not how this works. I told you before wasn't Jimmy too old of a cat to be called by kidding seat. This BEFO BEFO Lamar too good to be true. Yeah I think I played okay remember a few years ago during the BT awards and they say the winner is to cool down except lost you guys because we had never seen a Hallelujah Graham before a Hologram Lamar's Holly Grill. I know what he's like an inner city kid with a fancy. I told me one time I was six years old. She told me she'd go into my Daddy. Oh Man. They're seventy nearly as disappointed disowned. She told me bar base. He told me he's going to have a menagerie. The former birthday pad me. I'm in bed. I'm waiting room. He had awesome scantly. Lingering has pass some SAM had a cart.
