How Do We Process the Alternate Reality That Exists in Our World?
"Yet conservatives and Republicans are still pushing the vaccine. Despite all the evidence around them, they say it's a pandemic of the unvaccinated. And I want to close on this note, Daniel, I want to be respectful of your time. How do you personally process how we have people living in absolutely different universes as if there's a different existence occurring? It's maddening for me quite honestly and I just decide just to keep telling the truth and keep moving forward. But when I see Republicans that are coming up this year, I know the vaccine is the greatest thing ever. It's actually it's preventing all the harm and suffering. Meanwhile, we look at the United Kingdom, 223 COVID deaths today, highest daily number of deaths since March 79% of the population 12 and older is fully vaccinated. How do we process this alternate reality? Within our own within our own world. And by the way, Charlie, it's interesting, England, as I said, same delta, as it was the first delta wave in May, now is very problematic. That's after the 5 6 month Pfizer leakage benchmark just so you know, so that's actually a very good example of what I'm talking about. Now they are getting a problem. They are, by the way, luckier than the American south because they got the benefits of the transmissibility of delta earlier on the cheap. So they do have more built up immunity. They're not going to have as many deaths as we did, but they are having problems. How do I square this? Look, you read the Johns Hopkins papers over the last decade. And now I'm getting into this. Peter bragan has an amazing book on this that traces the timeline. And they've been working on this forever. And at the end of the book, he literally is a timeline. And I'm shocked, like it is shocking the stuff. It's creepy. The stuff they talk about, they talk about PR campaigns. It's a scope. So you either get it or you're a victim of it. It's not

The Media Is Positively Complicit in Biden's Disaster of a Presidency
"Maddening is a hell crazed. Do you become when you see how complicit the media is in giving this president today a pass on a daily basis not holding this administration accountable for practically anything after the four years we had to endure of these hyenas and jackals going after the trump administration and everybody in it day in and day after. how how. how hard is that for you personally to witness this ben. Oh my goodness mike. I mean you talk about a contrast over the last four years to what joe biden faces every day. I mean you're right when when we were there in the white house. If president trump so much took less than five questions before leaving the room. This shouts from the press would almost be deafening. You wouldn't be able to even hear what was going on. Because they would continually asking questions claimed that he was ruining or tarnishing the first amendment or or getting rid of press freedom whereas joe biden can't barely be bothered to leave his beach vacation in rehoboth delaware to answer questions for the failures of his administration. it's total projection on the part of the press on the part of democrats. And i think it's so funny. Oftentimes what you see with the left in washington. Dc you know how certain people when they get defensive. They project their failures onto people they oppose. No no one has been more guilty of that than the democrat party with press freedom. I mean you think about for years. For four years mike they consistently accused donald trump of harming freedom of the press of damaging the first amendment of not respecting the rights oppress oliver the country. Donald trump was out there every single day during the cova crisis during whatever crisis was going on facing the press taking questions from them answering whatever they wanted to hear and the american people knew exactly where their president stood at all times and with joe biden. That's not the case you're you're right. It's absolutely banning the double standard but frankly democrats in washington would have no standards that they didn't have double
Contractors Used by US Companies in Afghanistan Stuck in Limbo
"I am reading from the last thing. He wrote at national review about the contractor. Who is sent you an email. That concludes about priority to program. Which i did not know about until i read. Your column lives are in danger. Evacuations are in chaos. Don't believe a dan word. Plenty american spokesman says there either making it up or they allying and the damn system for prioritizing our afghan workers cluster because the department of state can't manage damn email inbox. I'm been so disappointed and angry at my government than today. It is maddening jim. That sentiment is echoed by every congressional staffer. I've talked to who is overwhelmed by the good congressman republicans and democrats who are trying to get interpreters and now i guess priority to people out of the country yeah A little bit of background know on this reader or at least what he's comfortable with me sharing So he worked for a company. Did construction and afghanistan they built both us bases and garrisons and sports and things like that and they also did certain things for the afghan government Mostly relating to the military police institutions. He listed specific ones to me. I don't wanna get into those. He doesn't want to Call any more attention. I guess you could say to the specific projects but this company employs thousands of afghans. And it's just about every last one of them needs to get out of the country. I don't know if you saw the cnn report that they issued a death warrant for the relatives of translator so it's not just like you know if you're saying oh with the taliban really bothered with a construction worker. Yes they're going after anybody who had any work For the americans in any capacity and this pg program In addition to you know military translators and folks like that there were a of you know. Us non-governmental organizations are us contractors or even by the francisco media organizations who employed afghans and. These were folks who they kinda quickly grass every bit as much at risk as anybody else. And i could be better late than never about an august second. They created this program to say. Hey have your employer. Information will process. It will give you a special versus visa. We'll get you out of the out of the country
Americans in Afghanistan Experiencing a Wide Range of Emotions
"Retired. Army colonel mike jason. Thank you for coming on the newsworthy. It's a pleasure to be here to talk to you and your audience. So i just briefly describe for us what it's been like for you watching afghanistan comeback under taliban control. It's just been joining horrifying humiliating sad maddening. All the range of emotions for me two decades of being involved in being in the army. You know since nine eleven. That's the case for a lot of us but at the same time before we could even start to reflect or think about it we are faced with a humanitarian and really a real life crisis to people that we know serve with or fought with or friends there is almost an immediate shift to focus and attention to where to put our energies. Yeah i know you've been in contact with people who are still there in afghanistan you've talked with gold star families. What have those conversations and messages been like. They're all over the map. I heard a friend of mine you know. He's like there's a digital dunkirk going on and literally that's what it feels like all of us by peers. My friends my former soldiers in it's not just military because we've had non-governmental agencies. They're the press at huge bureaus for years so we all have people on the ground. It's a rush to parse through the chaos and understand what what's happening what the communications are what's the way out what's truth. What's not truth. who safe what. The processes are just sifting through candidate confusion because it all happened just so quickly right and really to help those people and gold star families. That's just a rash of emotions. How do you even begin to conceptualize that and so i. It's just sort of checking in just letting them know that you're thinking about them. They're heard and there's different takes to it. They're frustrated or others resigned to it or many ways. It's hard to put in the words.

Trae Young on NBA 2K Rating: ‘Y’all Ever Gonna Get It Right?!’
"Young apparently is upset and we hear about this every year. It's mostly mad, and it seems like Madden. Players get more upset, which is the NFL. Then players care about their ratings. They can't do. Yes, well, apparently Trae Young is fed up. He's really fed up. How fed up Not only has he taken to social media saying, y'all ever going to get it right over his 89 ranking on two K 22, but Apparently close to people who know he talked to his agency and asked, Is there a way to sue to get him removed from the game? Because he thinks his representation is unfair. No, there's not. It's collectively bargained with the National Basketball Association. Your name, image and likeness actually was sold off by the union. That's why you pay your dues and you get your money from this. You actually paid for this trip so now thinks he is a 94 or higher, okay? For those who want to know that the highest ranking in the NBA NBA two K is LeBron James. Kevin Durant. Steph Curry 97 Be honest, They're all in 96. Then in 95, you've got quite a Leonard Luca Donges. Nicola your Joel and be James Harden. Damian Lillard. So by the way, I put him right behind them.

"No, at a high level, know it's not different at all. Your your audience has different expectations depending on what else, they're they're familiar with. So, you know, Sports parallel, Sports analogies are going to work better with, you know, audience who plays Madden, you know, for for League of Legends and products like that, they, they may bring in other Inspirations into their program. I mean, I'll give an example. As there's a lot of, you know, I'll say like anime or Asian cultural, influences and wage of Legends because that, you know, the audience is a little more Global, a higher concentration of of players in Asia. Whereas, like I explained before, you know, Madden is not very, very American. So, you know, at the other day, you're, you're, you're entertaining people. You're giving them challenges or giving them something to Aspire to, but just how you, how, you, how you dress it, how you. Dress it up, is the difference, you know and and we're in and how you inspire audience and get them to believe in the message cuz you need to make it need to make the experience. Feel native to to their life experience know. And it's it's wholly. American like you said, so that's where it's tailored towards. And I personally I enjoy that kind of product towards a certain community that more than trying to be this Global Outreach kind of thing. Because at that point, you try to disabuse you try to please everybody into disappointing, pretty much everybody, right? So this is the perfect way to talk about it, but Matt, Mark, you hear? Of course, commissioner for the Madden 2021 season here. Tell me what is the future of this competition? Be on this Madden. Bullet, draft Edition, what's going on for the rest of the season in the competitive scene for Madden? Yeah, this is this is the culmination of the Madden 21-game. So we took the end of of this year's Journey, but you know, we're already starting to look forward to, you know what we'll do in future years. So like I said, this off, this event is a one-of-a-kind new experience, so we're going to be we're going to be learning a lot from it and You know, identifying the best parts of it and figuring out if, you know, if it makes sense to replicate those in the future.

"Taking the results, across the entire Madden year and bringing together, you know, a Tournament of Champions bring them together to find out who, who is the the ultimate Champion out of out of all these players who've won, tournaments, and cash and prizes. So the Madball tends to be. It's it's a, it's a mostly an Invitational, then we're inviting players who've already achieved something throughout the year, but we also have a track that we call the last chance. Qualifier where again truth-in-advertising. We we allow a couple of players to it's their last chance to get in this this tournament. So typically we want you know this year's been a mix of open competitions where you know, anyone can qualify via the the game, the online ladders we run off. But we've also, we've also run a fair amount of Invitational competitions where we're recognizing people who've accomplished something over their their career or over or off. One another tournament very nice. And once again, the 2021 Madden Mobile draft Edition, beginning, this upcoming this upcoming Sunday, April 25th, $150,000 worth of projects money just up for grabs. This is not like a, you know, little backyard competition. Like I was like, I had when I was a kid growing up and sleepovers, you know, you have a an eight-player bracket double-elimination and I thought that was kind of our fun sleepover thing. This is more like a literal serious competitive scene and not unlike FIFA who I had the chance to talk to Alan Avi of complexity gaming, who talked about the FIFA competitions found in Apex Legends as well under the umbrella. What makes this different from other other scenes in your opinion. How did it really get started? Yeah, so I'll go I'll start with this event. Specifically you know what makes this a different is? We made all the other wage almost all the other competitions and the bad shape Series history have been one-v-one. Competitions, we made this a team event. Hence, hence the wage subtitled draft Edition. So we brought 24 of the best players together and we could accomplish meant eight of them became captains, and those captains did a snake draft of the other sixteen players to formulate a team. And we've, you know, we've gotten, we've gotten, you know, we got the feedback from our community, you know, our community even though Madden is predominately at 1 to be one game. There there have been a number of faith in competitions. Sometimes they call them crew crew, competitions and bring your crew in people, you know, playoff and in in in, in a situation. Um, so we decided to, you know, take that, that that concept, that that history and formalize it into an event. And, you know, I it's kind of an experiment, it's really exciting. We feel that there's enough kind of history and precedent to where the Madden Community will get this. We also feel that, you know, you've been given the the timing of of of April and the NFL draft, we feel that this competition is also understandable to a broader football or Sports audience, so it's a job. Really cool. Blend of a lot of history and you know, we're we're we're eager to see the reception to it and you know, kind of to understand if it's something. We should bring bring back for future Madden's very nice. I mean I'm excited about it and I'm I'm just not hearing about it for, like the first time this past week and I was thinking, this is insane to me. First, got FIFA competitions and now we have Madden. That's all I wish. You had more of it happening in, in, in to see it kind of grow into this, this this real competitive seen.

So, the past five years is acted as a, a pseudo organizing body of of competitions to give the community a regular set of competitions.

So do you just compete through the online rankings and then at the end of season, you know, if they will contact you say, hey want you compete in this, you know, Regional Tournament really quick. So how do players get involved? Yeah. So to to answer that question and go back to your question about the draft, you know, this was a little bit different, we've had to make, make adjustments to our series structure. You know, all events are online, and we've had some different offices on, on the game modes, we've used in Creative traditionally. The, the Madden the Madden Bowl in April is about.

Built the built sold a bunch of companies in the regular internet land I company was a god put summer camps online back in nineteen ninety nine and then you know how to fashion startup thousand six but in in Right around when bitcoin came out i saw early. Read at posts and whatnot and Was fascinated by it and I read all the posted. All this stuff. And i didn't quite running a business at the time and quite have the energy to really put up minor unfortunately back back in the early but You know kind of kept tabs on on the project that was declined back in the day and slowly got more and more into it. Invested saul invested sold but started getting really into technology and seeing what the technology can do right around the time of the cerium. Ico where i started doing some consulting work for other blockchain projects that were commercial. Land trying to do concept's flory be credit card companies and things like that helping. I'm a product guy build technology. I really know how to make products for the enterprise and helping you know various early projects and companies apply. What i know into what they know and make things it might might start in in crypto. Just have a firm belief that you know. Blockchain's are as important as Intervention as like the transistor was And like the same gonna take a long time for that kind of integrated change society but the cooler and more fun stuff that exists after. It'll happen so i find it interesting. Because i speak a lot of people in these conferences and it seems that this is a pretty common background people who are serial entrepreneurs who who were involved in the early adoption of the internet days building things on the internet and it seems a lot of those people people are now also in our building on blockchain and has been endless. Powerless draw between the two in terms of growth in the early days and adoption and the protocol layers. And this and that Do you find you mentioned you compared to two transistors And that's more of a tradition obviously a hardware but that that spawned obviously the computer age. And it's interesting you go back that far. I mean most people. I find compared to the internet. Why why did you feel Why do you view it as transistor and as the comparison for that more so than kind of this connective technology of internet. Yeah a question. So so the way. I look at it is the transistor was like the beginning of no allowing like automation With with basically build like to restart replacing humans with technology. Old computers were like rooms of people that had different that like that. There is like a person that they said caters. The here's the problem. We're trying to solve when break it down and give it to like this department. Solve this equation is that and then the output will come out some consolidation. That was a computer is a bunch of people and the same way. Like what we can do with blockchain's which is automated trust transactions and Whole slew of other types of automation. It's foundational piece in like beasley humans to do more Now that's how. I view it in that way there. So you know. Pcp is a layer on top of what transit software blocked our software. But it's cryptography itself as math and it's kinda you it's it's hardware you mentioned early on in this conversation that you're the product guy and i think that's a very product Answer very product focus. Answer now i think it's very fitting unique perspective on this industry and obvious technology because i mostly You know talking to the dreamers. But it's nice talking to the doer. You know definitely get that. You're the founder of the man network of. You're wearing any matt hive sweating to break down a bit. What is the madden network. Yes so so mad network is kind of like the is like the way i vision products and companies and things like that is like You know if. I'm going to be successful at something i need to kind of hold onto it kinda. Pull myself into it and the team into it. Right and ran network is a envisioning how organizations interact with each other in a in a high speed trusted way so You know the the way My my co-founder. Tom and i look at it. Is that that the advertising industry kind of paid for the internet to be built. You know google and facebook and all that kind of stuff like that like what we have now. The internet was largely the infrastructure built out because it was commercially viable to do that. Other months the government's they only go so far. And we kind of see it the same way for for blockchain right so. The advertising industry is kind of decentralized in the business version right. You're a media channel tons of other media channels. They're not. We're not all own jet by one company off the author interact with each other in pseudo trusted ways or else it all falls apart right and so you come up with all these standards in ways and you know in television sign affidavits and we go to court semi like a testings and so all that can be done with cryptography. We save a lot of times. They a lot of money. Smaller media channels can make more money. Less money goes to the intermediaries all the blockchain promises that we seen over. The past bunch of years is cut out the intermediaries and blah blah blah. We need we need application need actual place. That would actually happen. We saw. I've is a commercial entity that you know builds. Enterprise software for advertising. Mad network is the underpinnings of a new way to transfer to do that. Business and the goal is to kind of like overtime a bridge. Those together you know and and not just build something and hope people adopt it but actually build product enterprises that happens to us. Blockchain's yen this problem with this problem that you're providing solution to isn't at the forefront of most people's minds you know the the the average consumer or consumer of media isn't noticing this issue. This is more if you have a media company this. This is something that having behind the scenes behind the screen even like kind of break it down for viewers people who've never even thought of this issue because you're provided a novel solution to its gonna break a little bit of what was the old way of doing business here and the ad network in house different now because blocked not different yet It's starting to be There's an immense amount of momentum about you know close to like three to four hundred billion dollars of a mental every year that powers the existing wet right and so the existing way is basically people trusting each other and we all here especially the united states with our president. That's very concerned with ratings. Waiting is right and what a rating is is how much viewership a media channel gets right and so who and is this one application but something. I think that the person has not totally indoctrinated in the media. Space with understand that you know who makes the ratings and and so you know in the united states abroad. There's a company called called nielsen in that. Probably a lot of people have heard of that. Creates these These ratings at site. How many people are watching in the way that they do that is that they have panel of fifty thousand people or so states that are nielsen homes. All that data goes to nielsen. They crunch it and they say you know this show and this station had this much viewership and what that really means is that now. what the charge that advertising. That's why like the super bowl is like so expensive. The eighty five percent of watching super bowl and probably globally as well And so but now we're and that was a model built in the nineteen fifties. That worked really really well when there's like six media channels are less four really now that we have like thousands and thousands If there isn't a very simple if there isn't a way to price your media properly you need to like hand over your keys to like the kingdom to accompany that would like one of the major social networks are one of the major search engines companies like that. That can do that for you. And they'll happily do that for you. And taking a thirty to seventy percent of your revenue as well in order to like.

Snoop Dogg rage-quits game, leaves Twitch on
"It. Losing those frustrating Nobody likes it. But when you're hip hop Ogi, you probably have a much lower tolerance for getting your ass kicked than most regular gamers. Du That's why this week are failed. It goes out to Snoop Dog who ended up rage, quitting a Madden livestream after playing for only 15 minutes. I get it. I totally understand what you're playing like the computer again, somebody against other people. Alright, Fair enough. Fair enough. That's new dogs. Still the man in the while he's been known to talk a little trash about his mad and skills since he's a pretty good player. This time the trash was talk to him. Listen as he pulls the plug and bails obvious dream life. Oh, man. What the because you doing cause What is going on him. Snoop never quit out of the stream entirely and let the stream apply for another 7.5 hours while he went about smoking weed and playing classics from James Brown to Bruno Mars, his home stereo literally didn't not just rage quit out of the game.

Inside The Russell Wilson-Seahawks Rift
"Years russell. Wilson has been wanting to throw the ball more and at the start of this year. It finally happened russell. Wilson was not good in the first half of the twenty twenty season. He was excellent deep cap touchdown. Seattle you run down there and set in his answer. Any better than that was fourth in yards per attempt. Weeks one through nine i. In passing. touchdown percentage was second in passer rating. Wilson keeps as default talk. He was legit. The best player in the league madden gave him a ninety nine overall rating during the season because he was cooking notion as he throws an accident. Edi feeds defensive player of the years like russell. Lula's legitimately the best guy in football games of the season then week nine arrived and they had this game against the buffalo bills that you recently wrote about. Can you tell us what happened in that game. And afterwards what happened is russell had to cook in the kitchen. Just kind of just caught on. Fire his paycheck wine with a sack at a takeaway from russell wilson. I actually watched that game with a former cr defensive and cliff april and teased talking me through it. And he's like russ's off he's trying to do too much and i think turned it over like four times. He threw a pick on the goal. Line throws for the jordan with tyco. I think that really turned the tables for the whole team. After that loss where they gave up forty four points and turned it over a bazillion times and got embarrassed in buffalo. Well what i would tell you that. I don't recognize that game. We haven't seen the look like that and it's a game that i don't have any place in my brain for. He told us he didn't even have any space in his brain for that game. That's very important subjects right like the fact that he considered that not seahawks. Football was influential the rest of the year. Well the following week against the rams things. I guess only got worse. Wilson throws and the other one four darius williams second game. I know that there are better days ahead. I'll use a baseball now but sometimes you go up to the plate you know and you don't have your way today mike. You and our colleagues. Mike sando jason jank's wrote about a meeting. That happened shortly after that loss to the rams can you take us inside that meeting room and just explain what went down russia's meeting with the coaches normal game planning type of meeting and he has suggestions he is giving input usually does and his suggestions just weren't dismissed. There were dismissed in a way that russell didn't feel appreciate it. And i think that is really important. I'm sure they disagree in every meeting ever but in this particular instance rust belt that he was not being appreciated so rushed stormed out was basically this idea that. How dare anyone in this building. Be dismissive of my ideas. I am of the quarterback was almost like kevin durant warriors when he was like no way up. I'm kevin durant russell wilson and he rustled perceives him to be someone who has succeeded. In spite of what's been around him not because of running for his life making the pro bowl with battle lines perceive that to be like the story of his career. And you get to week eleven. And it's like do. Just chill out. We got this no. You don't don't get it. I got it and that forced him out the door. Russell in the second half of the season was which is not himself like he was twenty eighth in yards per attempt in his final eight games he was sixteenth. In a touchdown percentage nineteenth in passer rating. These are bad numbers. These are not just like below average twenty nine yards per attempt man that was lower than the cincinnati bengals. Even when the circumstances are bad around russell he's been good enough to elevate situation still played inefficient level and twenty twenty was the first time it was like. Wow he's not able to elevate the lack of talent or execution of preparation around him and it produced like some of the worst numbers of his career certainly produced the worst playoff game of his career against the rams in the wild round sitting meeting big. Who's going into other sack four sacks two takeaways the interception return for the touchdown and floyd now all right. Let's fast forward a few weeks to the super bowl. The seahawks have been knocked out by the rams in the wildcard round and russell. Wilson is at super bowl. Fifty five in tampa bay sitting with none other than commissioner. Roger goodell mike. Tell us what you found in your reporting about russell. Wilson's experience at the super bowl. You know it's really interesting. Because i tweeted during the super bowl. That antonio brown caught a touchdown from tom brady in front of russell. Wilson there is the pass for the touchdown. What drive a super bowl. Winning drive that brady's only done throughout his whole career. I kind of just said it like star cast the as a joke. Not really thinking about how russell fell and then as our reporting i was like okay so i i was right like he is really upset. And it's so many factors. There is the fact that tom brady is in. The super bowl is the fact tom. Brady's they're playing pine. A good line is the fact that tom brady is playing in a system. That gives him some atonomy like got to pick players gronk. Antonio brown is the fact that mahomes is there again laying for again in a system that like essentially like his talents. The last time also played in the super bowl loss of tom brady seven years later prime many years. Tom brady's back. I suppose in a soup. Kitchen fuming so during the superbowl. He's texting his quarterback coach. And just close. Friend jake heaps. He's a local radio guy. Here jake to set it on the radio. He's talking about how russ was missed during the game texting him. They'll look the he had was in reflective of the text messages. I was receiving russell wilson. Just ultimately the overall sentiment was that he was mad that he was not lying in this thing and then russell spoke to the shortly after the game show. What's up with our line. You see that. Winning requires a good line and the gist of peace response. As far as i was told is about faith. And just you know we got this. And that just wasn't good enough for us
Twitch's Recent Sports Properties Show Longterm Plan for the Platform
"On Sports properties and recently we've seen big moves towards that goal. I'm a dream since the Esports minute from E Sports Network, which is of course the home for Esports now will always be the platforms origination. But clearly the platform has been evolving firstly. There is a massive rise in just chatting as a category and in a lot more casual games and politicians using the platform. So there's that Evolution but there's also the evolution towards traditional Sports and we've seen this as well during the time when Twitches found Newfound competition, there are major leagues and major creators that are moving off platform over the last two years while the mixer experiment Network YouTube live has snatched up the CDL and o w l will also grabbing some big streamers in the process, but I honestly don't think twitch really cares that much they still are the dominant force in the mark. And command the largest audiences plus they have these grander plans. This isn't really a super controversial take twitch has been experimenting with more traditional sports events on the platform for the last few years. Most notably Thursday football games Coast trained with creators from the last few weeks two pieces of news have shown Twitches interest in traditional Sports and how it's continuing one was FIBA and the other was the kickoff of the fan control football game. Let's start with viva viva is the international basketball association the Federation dial international basketball amateur is where the FIBA acronym came from and now it's just the international basketball association today. They signed a multi-year deal with twitch people as far away from the NBA when it comes to viewership or relevance, but it does around the qualifying tournament for basketball at the Olympics as well as the bass World Cup and the World Cup and Hoops is definitely not the same as the World Cup in soccer, but it's still an important Sports property as part of the deal with twitch feeble broadcast 600 hours of basketball games on Twitch every year wage. Also be lighting up deals with Co streamers and creating more interactivity during broadcasts that interactivity is what twitch could offer and is also makes the fan control Football League pretty unique. The FCF is a new property that is not a few weeks on Twitch to pretty good viewership. It's cool because fans call the plays live during the game literally they vote on them and then the team runs them fans also have control over branding and player decision as well. The FCF utilizes Twitches ability for interactivity to basically play Madden in real life. Even Johnny Manziel is in the league for now. These are basically see tears Sports properties, but they show a month for twitch going forward the next time the meteorites come up for one of the major sports leagues Twitches definitely going to be having discussions. They've already cut in by having some of the NFL
How Lessons From Esports Past Drives Esports Future with Repeat.gg CEO Aaron Fletcher
"This audience. So Eric go through the companies you found it quite a few there are plenty of starts across this industry. What advice can you give to some one of the first steps of fouling their own Esports or gaming company that you wish you do when you were starting out darn raised before you have Mom don't do anything until you have markets it it's it's that's it. That's purely it. I guess there's two things and don't be a dick but the the biggest one is definitely until you have some formal Market 5th and you can find out if you go to market fit pretty quickly just talk to people ask questions find the right people finding users find those things find out how much they willing to pay find out if they're willing to basically walk or use your product find out all these sort of things and grow that first before you start thinking. Oh, this is amazing. This is going to work cuz I think there's there's and and then I guess the other one actually is learned from birth. Past experiences and a lot of people don't do that, especially with a t Sports because the history have a have a chat to someone like either myself or have a chat like don't talk to someone who's a consultant that's been in the year in in the game two years talked to someone who's being in the industry for twenty years because they will tell you a lot more valuable information than someone who's been in there for two years and only knows about the currency because the current scene it's all about raising this big money about raising this big capital and you don't get the history of like the companies like tournament.com the raised a hundred million dollars and went broke over six months. You don't have seats need a CDL or CTS. I think it is that raised a hundred million dollars as well and we're broke after a year-and-a-half. You don't have all of these kind of things and we're play verse was as an example before they became what they raised what they are now off and that that you kind of could find on the internet even though I know the history there and there's a lot of other companies like that that you'll that you you only get from the perspective of people that have actually been in the industry because people have a game Get it either scrubbing the internet or it's just hard to find anything that isn't relevant now absolutely agree. It's the same advice. I give to student journalists. I talked to quite a few classes about hey, what could you do any sports journalist? What if we want to get involved in this space? And the first thing I tell them is get to know the history of the space get to know everything that happened with Major League Gaming from 2002 to 2010. That's where the start get to the creedy sports Association how this developed in Asia and that will guide your accurate reporting on this space if you understand what happened long before you probably got involved in it that was the case for me cuz we got a school, you know, I was in the 2015 2016 range was like, oh massive Madison Square Garden League of Legends. This is crazy thing off you go back in time and you're like, okay, let's look at the Madden tour bus as like an example of where it's these things that happen is sports over the time that I think are really crucial job. Like understand how we got to the place where at today and then helped give you those guiding lessons to make sure that the same mistakes aren't made. Well MLG an ESL at two really good examples of understanding their Acquisitions why they happened what happened with the issues they ran into especially MLG with God Frank cuz they had a whole pile of litigation issues with God frag when they did their acquisition why they got acquired by Activision and wage. It's it's an interesting story. That's probably better for another time. But in terms of those sort of things and that history that was kind of built there is actually really important because getting a quiet is a skilled gaming platform different platform broadcasting platform any of those by a publisher is a huge problem from both illegal Nightmare and a whole pile of other things because the skilled gamer is 18 plus as well as the tournament system requires 18 plus or Parental Guidance cetera, et cetera. So it becomes a Minefield on those sort of things and then you've got ESL same thing going through their acquisition and the different times they are now with mods. This group and and the difference in the kind of the company structure cuz everyone says he s l and they see these companies and they're like, they must be making it a billion dollars and I'm like, yeah doesn't look like that. It may seem like that from the outside cuz they're doing these large events and they're doing these things. But in terms of the revenue is not driven as much as you kind of think from that. It's really driven through the Publishers. Yeah, if you're done if you're not the publisher gave and you work a t sport chances are the money is not flowing your exactly there's only a few Outlets the kind of work and I've been in basically every single facet of that because I used to run events with the young. I used to run a lot of those sort of things with them for a long time. Actually u c l e s w c w c g a lot of the events around those and running those Live Events is is great. But it's like a break even marketing cost. It's not a it's it's what you'll use to fuel income elsewhere. Not what you're used to make money lost leader marketing basically at this point. Yeah, exactly. That's it's a funny industry to be it especially as we look at where these Sports organizations are going. This is totally off topic. By the way. Just the I had em for this wasn't for a podcast but I talked to Jason Lake in Andy Miller Jason Lake complexity CEO Andy Miller NRG CEO for audience. I do you do that. They were basically talking about hey, we're going to make Revenue eventually with our religious the Publishers of Olives. That's that's what we're counting on to make money in the mean time. We're going to keep building our brand up in whatever way we can we're to keep trying to capture feds. But really we just need to log get to a point where Publishers need us to enter the game because that will bring fans that will bring the marketing there looking for and then the Publishers have to reward us for doing so and that's kind of just walk the biggest eastwards organizations in the world see this space right now and that's it tells a lot. I think it will you actually have a look at most of these Sports organizations or actually converting from competitive Play De comme Recreation almost all right, converting over to that for Revenue basis cuz I've talked to a lot of these guys you have come like you've got Team Liquid as an example of trying to push in the text side of things cuz we've talked to him a few times about what they're doing for Thursday. We also consulted with the guild who raised with David Beckham, or they paid David Beckham to re it was it was a debacle. It was a drastic they they they are doing a good job. I think they really heavily like ninety percent of the money that they raised is purely attack. It's not to do to build out the team and build out anything on that account on the arm competitive site is secured purely build out both the content side as well as a Tech play on them because of the end of the day all this content and everything that they're creating in these fans and these users they need to figure out a way to monetize them and monetizing them generally comes through like merchandise. It comes through tourneys to come home a brand deals. And unfortunately, if you're the best game in the world, it doesn't mean you have a massive following you may not be entertaining to watch. So therefore content creation becomes king for this and which dog And fuels Brands which in turn fuels everything else and like I just talking to so as as Consulting with IDC, I think like probably a couple of weeks ago. I was I was talking to them cuz they're doing metro sports at the moment and it was a pretty interesting conversation cuz they're one of the first companies that isn't Yuzu that isn't that they're doing it. They're doing Esports Revenue a very different way. So Esports Revenue right now is off late. It is how much so it's like one point two billion or something. It's basically nothing compared to the publisher revenues like a hundred and sixty billion. So and that's where most of the revenue from E Sports is actually going. So what they're doing is they're doing a bottom-up kind of approach and looking at all of these other things that are kind of skewing it. So right now Esports revenue is calculated with just brands that are paying for events and advertising and all the way around that around which basically whereas they're looking at it from the other side of things and they're like, look, there's all this gambling Revenue that's also generated on top of Like betting on these matches and all this this looking that's that's showing any sports revenue and you've got companies like skills that their revenue alone for skills is bigger than the revenue of every single e sports team exists in the world in his voice. That's

"That yes. i think that's probably. I think for canada like it works for us because again. We're not the biggest country in the world so it works out nicely for us that fan expo and toronto earth can exist and be a pretty decent size for everybody whereas in the states. I mean it's three hundred million people so you can imagine it's gonna be a nightmare. The depends on the experience and the german. You have at the event so at just do yourself a favor. Don't say the e three can't be a good experience if you haven't been no i get that but from what i have see three is more of li- said no no no. I'm just i'm calling out like you're taking anecdotal storytelling and not having your own experience. You can't say oh. I think eg lx and fan bar great but he three sucks when you haven't been to eat. I'm just saying that like as a buffer sucks. I just say you set. It must not be a good experience so that it sells are over. What we've heard. Is that like out. What mike from night. Wealth came to our show us on each three. That it's more about the big name Developers like nintendo sony lad. No but what i need is designed more for them. It's designed more as a business and shareholder event light and it is an event. I understand that all saying is that you can't say that the experience must be bad because you don't have an experience like i'm not going to say the three must be shit to go to because i would no i just i go. I go and watch. Watch the streams. And i'm like ooh this. This game looks cool. All that's holy shit. They announce that. That's that's my three. So i can't really say anything bad about it. I just know from what we've read that. They've been struggling for a while and more companies been pulling out. So i'm not saying that it's a bad experience. I'm just saying it's it's survivability is starting to go down yeah absolutely because the thing is is like let's face it if any if all of us got the chance to go and sit in on this press conference fighted to go. Oh my god. We'd fucking go. Yeah like the press conferences. In person i think would be mind blowing. Just because they're such hype thing and even if it's like they're announcing arose in which case we blew the entire time and they get kicked out. Yeah that's true. Yeah because diplomats confused..

"Only way that it survives. Would it have to transition to be like that for fans. It would almost have to be like another packs. I think that's the only way they can survive at this point. I agree with you but it. Will they actually do that. I don't think so. That's up to the themselves because they are aboard of game industry executives. So it's really up to that. It's up to what they wanted to be if they want to do. If they want to be able to make money off of it you transitioned it into a fan of because i think people are getting tired of the the format because like you said it's just trailers like we can just wait for the vaud and just watch it. Watch them whenever we want. We don't need to be there for especially when they're not giving you anything or you're not giving demos if this digital event is doing that that maybe there is an incentive now that people pay attention to e. three because now they can no. Oh shit this. Here's the trailer for this game and they'd be like demo out now all of a sudden on the playstation store there's stem. Oh really oh then it gives you reason but like otherwise. Yes just trailers. You don't have to watch it that day. You can just wait for aegean or whatever other place on youtube. Just post all the trailer separately. And you get your fix that way and i really just. That's my thing three before like when we were younger in high school that man. I wish i'd go to eat. Three manager sounds awesome as we got like a three just a dick measuring contest. It's really yeah. What's going to happen when they have a digital stage. How are they gonna photoshop a mclaren f one car on the fucking stage just to make it seem like it's still a normal ethan. Wait what is you all man. You solves dance. Numbers going to be even better because they're going to have proper fucking video formatting for it. They can make a proper like museum. All our listeners are out of canada each. Lx is a gaming convention that accident toronto annually before fucking corona and chris adamant i have gone there a few times at. It's just fun it's like it's like five to ten percent the size of e three. It's mostly any developers. There is some eastward stuff. Because i think it started out as as an e sports convention yet. But it's kind of evolved into being a little bit more than that but it's it's it's a very small in comparison festival and it's just there to either go watch people breakfast. Should i be fighting games to go. Try some indie games or by some fucking merch. It's it's pretty.

"He yeah he could the one he did but the game didn't register it if he got so is off. He returned to game if while he traded it in young. Yeah that's i feel that pain because tales of graces f on ps three. I got the platinum for that game. And it requires you to beat the game Almost i'd say to half times so you go through the whole game which is already like sixty hours getting all this stuff. Then you have to play through the whole thing again you have to reach level two hundred so if you ever think getting to level ninety nine in a game is ridiculous level. Two hundred is a lot further off. Holy shit you have to look at like throughout the game it'll tell you to hit like the select button whatever that's called now and on controllers to bring up like a little cut scene where it's just some dialogue between the characters. There's an achievement to get every single one but the thing is is that they're so easily miserable because you'll see one pop up you walk through the door and when you walk through the door at little cut some can never use say get a trophy for cotton into every character on the game. Eight no for listening to every cut scene so throughout the game. I don't know come up. In the video i saw. It's come up a couple of times it'll show the select button or like a little image. In the bottom left hand corner. You hit the select button. It brings each person's up portfolio picture up Profile picture and it's they have a conversation about what's happening in the game. It happens every time you walk through a door or like something. Somebody says something new enemy for that. He experiences every little bit of dialogue. That's on the game yes there is. There's like something like four hundred of them or something and and if you miss one you don't get it and i've already missed one. I saw i walk by. She added.

Originally was torn between getting this on switch and p c Pc just because obviously i'd be able to get the best resolution and all that kind of stuff but then with these games being as big as they are having it portable switch. It's kind of lake. That will help me. Beat this even faster But it was on game. Pasos like okay. You know what. I'm gonna load this up on xbox I wanted to play this and dragon quest eleven this one only because it was on game pass earlier so i assume that means it will disappear from game pass eventually earlier so probably play this one. I i thought this would be something. I just kind of play in between other games. Because i have to be like so many games a month and everything that keep track with my goal and everything for the year. Oddly enough. this game has kind of like absorbed a lot of my life. Just because as i mentioned in the discourse talking to you guys in anybody else. Who's been in the vcr podcast discord It's like party that you should join. Yes please please. Everyone just go immediately It was it's just like i turned it on and it was like going and visiting an old friend and it just like i had a smile on my face. It just made me feel all warm inside. It's just that type of game where the tales of games haven't changed in so long like i played Symphonia says syria Tales of graces. And now this one and like they're all the same game. He engine changes a little bit. But not that much. The characters are all different. The locations different the stories different. But i mean they all have the same. The same. Approach the ridiculous. Jr pg foggin tropes and stereotypes. Oh my god the amount of times that like somebody will see somebody walk by that go. Is that him.

So what you're saying. It's always just been called bitch bid rich and i was like b thing this thing. This and i've podcasts. With both of you there was two swearing now. I don't believe that i won't believe there was. I think there was too much swearing in a movie that really didn't need much swearing because there is no such thing as too much swearing. Inglorious bastards needed more swearing. No that's a. I'm so happy. You mentioned that. Because i lost my god and that it was a bad it was if tearing tito made a bad romcom Romance movie it literally was just two people arguing on top of the entire. I feel and tearing j. deo made of romance chrome i'm not gonna lie. That sounds awesome. Actually your point if territory though made a made a A love story. It was just two people yelling at each other for almost two hours. I literally at the only say zendaya in a john. David washington did a great job in the acting. Part of this movie and it was not unlike the yeah. Yeah it did it just all my faulk is so i'm going to ask the ultimate question. Then which was worse this or the last air bender fucking allegory. The last air vendor. Because we watch that movie theaters and we paid money to watch it. And don't give me your bullshit outside reasons just as a movie which one's worse technical you paid to watch that movie probably because you probably thought on netflixif something you paid for it now really thinking think you broke. You don't want. I will actually go with the last heir vendor good answer because the nerves here that Malcolm unreal had no source knows source. Material were the last air. Banner had a fantastic source material. Said they saw. It was a bad movie up against a bad movie. That ruined childhood memories. Okay that's one hundred percent logical and all in all fairness when the last winter came out. I was definitely not a chalk hill. That was in my late. Yeah imagine imagine watching the last air better series and then watching the movie now now that you've really enjoyed the animated series. Imagine watching the movie now.

I would stand and take my hat off and hold it to my chest for fucking random bullshit like that. I would stand up and look at any flag. You put on top of the stadium for rick.

I had this talk with my family about this. That really the national end. The for a lot of countries isn't really the country song so for example for israel the song that people know about is not la la it says i love how you pronounce the song and then proceeded to sing it properly.

Team Liquid Collabs with Naruto
"It's a bit of a slow news day in these Sports as America celebrates The Unofficial holiday that is the day after the Super Bowl but there's no apparel collaboration that e sports fans are stoked about first a few thoughts on the big game besides Brady winning again which is absolutely absurd we saw him or big gaming personalities intertwined with the game this year off nadeshot appeared in a commercial for Rockstar and last year we saw ninja and fortnite World Cup winner Booga appearance Superbowl commercials as well in the stands ninja and dr. disrespect were featured with cardboard cutouts at home Here's game. The NFL is clearly aiming at a younger audience. They streamed previous playoff games on Nick and on Twitch in this game. They brought in Nickelodeon slime cannons for part of the broadcast, but they didn't do a tire simulcast on Nick like they did with the previous games the legal keep tapping into gaming influencers and channels with the goal in mind of capturing younger audiences think they're realizing that just a focus on Madden isn't should be enough of a gaming push the NFL could look towards e Sports organizations for how to connect with their target audience clearly Team Liquid has their fingers on the pulse. Anime is huge with Gen Z and Naruto has been popping over multiple generations and multiple series liquids new clothing line with the popular anime is going to sell absurdly quick the shop will open up on February 12th at 2 p.m. CT. And if you want some of the collection you'll likely need to be online at that moment exactly or close to it liquids ongoing partnership with Marvel has also been very successful, especially on the merchandising side. There's clearly a huge opportunity for home. organizations to pair with other popular media when looking to expand their merchandising operation while Brands like thieves and FaZe Clan have built up streetwear with just their logos collaborations are a large part of how they got their liquid is taking a little bit of a different path with their merch strategy but it's one that is also working well and I'm sure this collection is going to be a huge
Matthew Stafford Blockbuster: Will the Rams Massive Gamble Pay Off?
"Bill barn. While i am sorry. I off retold you on friday explicitly. You'd have this rare sunday off from your job making a smarter about football. But just when you think you're out espn daily always pulls you back in pablo. I was ready to record at one in the morning to talk about the madden pro bowl. So this is slightly more newsworthy. So happy at least we have more something something more compelling perhaps talk about here with matthew stafford trade bill barnwell is a senior writer for espn and the host of the bill barnwell show podcast compelling but also kind of the closest thing football gets to a video game transaction. Two starting quarterbacks getting swamped. We have matt stafford. Go into the rams jared goff plus two future first rounders and third rounder. This year headed lions. So when you got the adam. Schefter claxton on your phone saturday night. Your first reaction was what. What my first reaction i would say that the rams really hate traffics and want to get rid of them quickly and efficiently as possible and then my second thought was that the rams really were done with jared goff and wanted to move on from him and weren't going let anybody beat them to the punch with an offer. We knew that a deal was coming this week because there were reports on saturday that the lions were expecting to get a deal done by tuesday which is essentially when it comes to the nfl their way of saying. Hey get your best offers end because we're gonna make this deal sooner rather than later We knew the rams are questioning their commitment to. We talked about it over the past couple weeks on. espn daily. Even though his four year one hundred thirty four million dollar extension has not started yet. And then on top of all that brad homes the new general manager with the lions just like the rams after i believe eight years as their director of college scouting under less need. It was the other. Gm who made this trade so put all that together and the rams made the most sense as a possible destination for stafford but the fact that the deal was announced late on a saturday night probably tells you that the rams were not especially proud of how all this went down. Just given up on the quarterback they have been propping up and defending public years while giving up two extra first rounders justice upgrade under center

"madden" Discussed on 5 Questions with Dan Schawbel
"My goal is to extract best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just by questions, I guess today is fashion designer an entrepreneur Steve Madden Steve started his first company back in nineteen ninety with a mere $1,100 selling shoes out of the trunk of his car and today is company is worth over three billion along the way he struggled with an alcohol addiction and went home for over two years for stock fraud Steve's story at both success and failures captured in his new book The Cobbler which we discuss in this podcast episode after you dropped out of college took a job as a traveling salesman for a shoe company, but didn't have a driver's license because you had so many DUIs this didn't stop you from being successful at your job though. How did this early experience shape you as a business person and Ed. The foundation for your future company I left school because you know, my father was paying for school and I wasn't, you know, I wasn't taking it seriously and you know, I was pretty wild and stuff. And so I went to work in a shoe store in New York's came back to New York and went to work in a shoe store and then got various jobs along the way and and then by the end of the eighties and went into my own business, but I work for a wholesaler. I worked in stores and I really learned the the business my work ethic has never changed. I work as hard as I did when it was my business when I worked for someone else. I worked the same way never changed just the anxiety went up working in a shoe store is invaluable working in a store you get to see what women want and you really get to see it cuz that's the action it would be like a general in the Army like having basic training, you know, like being able to see what it's like as a private club. Corporal themselves invaluable to me. Yeah, it's like being a waiter or waitress and then maybe and then and then only restaurant. Yeah. Sure. Yes, and you have a degree of empathy to you can relate to George struggles which is under important role of relationship building. That's very well put that is very good point. You see people working in your store and people tend to like get a little sniffly about that..
"madden" Discussed on LAN Parties: A Video Gaming and Esports Podcast
"I don't know Mike. Do you follow the CO D. League at all? Not. Well I've heard of seeing obviously of it and me and my brothers are huge fans and. I think we've actually come into contact with a few of them because we've got killed by some people sport in their logos and stuff unless it's just man. I haven't honestly paid attention to it much. Again too I think this is part of that. You know what I mean as far as generating. Just, Fan base and popularity unless you're really invested you know what I mean in a character or or person within a team. I. Feel like you know having this season this long it makes it kind of difficult to keep up with it I. Guess it almost reminds me for me anyway like baseball the seasons are so long I just can't. Follow it is too long. You know what I mean. It's like I'll I'll come in when when playoffs happened you know but otherwise I don't really I'm just like. Okay. It's a game here there but I'm not really like super invested. And again, this is this is you know it's really about building that fan base four team and and you know getting getting fans energized and and you know looking to root for their home teams or whatever I I'd Kinda like to see them do something and I know as they are trying to. Really. Make these events bigger and stuff like that. Obviously has been a lot more difficult that a lot of these are now taking place online were not an actual venues or anything like that. So. Definitely brings on a new challenge for growing this league. Definitely. Like they're want some of it because it looks like they would kick my butt any day. But rather than the one time I did they were out, you do that. Spray and pray. Around. Yeah you don't run you make a good point and we we've talked about this before. It's how do you expand the popularity behind the core base of this game and you know baseball's a good example I always joke with my friends at all attention to baseball in September when the playoffs are going at least in a normal season and the wrestler she is I don't really watch that much just 'cause it's so Dang Long. There's so much else to do that. You know your engines going. To be ten for ways in a seemingly meaningless match, you know in the middle of April, win the championships not going to be for another three, four five months. It's hard to bring that average fan or the not hardcore fan. So this will be fascinating. You know eastport has put its foot forward in a big way through covid. Now it's who can extend that beyond that and whoever gets there. First, I mean that audience is GonNa be even more massive than the numbers seen right now. Yeah I agree and again. This is another great opportunity. Where everybody is really having to utilize the digital space for them to be able to capture some of these people that they haven't been able to. Before the we'll see how it shakes out but I mean ultimately, I just wanted to say congratulations to the Dallas. Empire. Getting a dub win the championship gee. To the team sifting years a little bit I don't know I this story makes me laugh I know there's a few you guide out here that lifting you guys originally were asking us about Madden twenty-one I think this story is is is not surprising, but Madden twenty-one has now come out to the lowest user ratings scores on metacritic..

"Right this week for sports jog. We'll be talking about the madden curse. Now, I don't believe in ghosts spooky I don't believe in bigfoot. There's probably aliens though so. I don't believe in Salad Thing. But I do believe in the madden curse and its powers. And it might not get you the first season that you're on. But it will get you for sure. So let's talk about the madden curse. So we're talking about the video game. The Madden video game has been around since the late eighties nineteen eighty, eight I think is the first John Madden football game. I love men. It's one of the best games that we're GONNA play that we've we've played and we've played most of them since it's came out. Based on age like the perfect. Age Group. For that sort of the euro is born. You're playing as a fetus I heard It's the best top five percent in the country. So the reason that Madden Kinda. Took over as the main football game because we had a bunch, we attack mobile which Wakeman football we add quarterback club. There's a bunch of Weird quarterback club was that was a good one. John was really adamant that had to be real football. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight. It was very, very difficult to make a football game those eleven on eleven but he's like, yeah, we're not doing unless you figure it out. GotTa be eleven on eleven aim we're GONNA teach people how to play. We're going to have actual football place and play books from the teams. It's going to be awesome and they're like, I don't think we could do that. Figure it out nineteen eight, they figured it out. So a lot of people learn how football works from playing John Madden football. figure out what a sweep is called. You figured out what a cover to cover three defense was You learn a lot of that from playing madden, not not even watching football, but just from playing the game, people aren't all that stuff. So it's been a really popular game. And it's all based around John Madden early on. Is A guy who likes video exactly that gentleman John Madden is on the cover of the game from the inception of the game. Until nine, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine is the first time they like. You know what? We should put players on the game. Players GonNA play. Let's give them the honor of being on their Gianni Versace like eleven times. Let's change it up and we'll pick somebody that had a really good season from the year before. No good to be on the cover, it'd be great. Spoiler it was not great for most people they on the mend cover two, maybe three. Debatable maybe maybe three at the most. So, the first one that's on there as garrison hearst. Forty niners running back. At one of the most exciting playoff runs of all time elegant ninety, nine yard run. He was pretty good on that team the Jeff Garcia teams. Well, he was on the Madden, cover. The next year. He breaks his ankle in the playoffs. This is before we knew that there was madden curse took a while to figure out. Well, not that he broke his ankle and they went in and try to repair it and something went wrong in one of his bones actually died. I didn't even know your bones could die. Yeah, and then I don't know what happened. But I know that he missed the next two seasons I guess they brought CPR or something on the bone. Brought it back. It's sort of like an Indian burial. Thing. And they okay. They actually got the GAL bones? Picks they broaden bones and mom right becker. We came back up to the two seasons never quite the same again. That's a weird worn off. For the first non John Madden person on the cover at the time. Next year. All right let's stick to the more mainstream names. There's no way. This one can go wrong. It's not go deep tracks every year we'll get Barry Sanders. He's the best running back in the world bright. Troy tells what happened In July of Nineteen, ninety, nine after it was announced it very good me on the cover of Barry Sanders. Football I. Don't want my bones to die so. Very Sanders is like I'm going to retire early and I'm not gonNA tell you why. But I just I have a feeling this bad and curses. Thank. He was sick of playing for a terrible lions team. And I think he sends the curse early on. And he just I don't want any of that amount. No dead bones from get Outta of here. So you retires in July, the game normally comes out in August. So we had an alternate cover, we had Dorsey Levens. Accurate and. He was alternate cover and. Also the European cover, they had time to switch that one out. He actually had a decent season. And then in the play offs against the I, think it was the ravens. They gave him a little. Swing Pass bobbled it pick six other way ballgame. In the next one maybe. Dorsey Levens was Kinda he was like his last year. He's added the league shortly after that he was the replacement Barry Sanders Jinxed it. Next year is two thousand, one Eddie George. Oh that guy I was wondering for minute there why the packers were playing the Ravens in the playoffs I was thinking the same thing where you going with this, I need to play more story. Two Thousand One and we got Eddie George. I believe this is. Right, after the super bowl against the rams. Would been the year after that, right? So He's in the super bowl really running back. And true. What happened in that game against the?.

There's a ton of people that are saying no. Don't don't worry about you know entering the horse. You're you know what I want to raise him. You know I'm not gonNA take a significant discount on you know this individual horse. I'd rather just see him in my silks and you know Orel fell. You know it is a two year old or something like that. So there's kind of a wait and wait and see game but again you know the the pin hookers or are vital to the market. You know whether you're selling foles or you're selling yearlings or You know and it's it's just a we rely on each other you know and those guys they the two year old guys need to get liquid you know before they can come into the yearling market and Really have a you know a a bit of cash to to buy you know. So it's like You know kind of the dominoes the dominos fall. You know it We need those we need. You know two year old participation you know. People abide repent hookers We need their participation at the yearling sales. And you know Need all the help we can get. So yeah those those racing you know the the people that there are selling two year old now and everything I think that I'm really really rooting for those sales. You know obviously to kind of stay. The course and I know they've been pushed back and everything but really rude to to come through again. Wow all makes sense to push back. You know the yearling sales as well has. Has there been any you heard of of people utilizing we've had regular visits with a between Gen Shah from Dean Doran and Keith champion and a Alex Waldrop. We've tried to keep everybody up to speed on the progress of the two initiatives. There's been two waves so far At at the farm community is is eligible and and just the conversation. We had Monday actually It became there was an added Layer of monies available for for farms. If you heard of people that are are taking advantage or trying to gain some you know some advanced monies to tide them over to be honest with you. I haven't I haven't Haven't had to too much dealings with all of that but man I'm rooting you know. I'm rooting for everybody to you. Know they need it and want it and can apply for. I mean that would be. That'd be fantastic. You know for for the you know the equine businesses the whole you know the small businesses and people like that you know it's it I would be rooting for something like that. That'd be great. Well it's out there and for those that haven't been aware for one reason or another I imagine most have but At at the small business administration page The paperwork the the emergency loans as well as the The the payroll protection program and Then we know of the number of of horsemen that have Been able to get some help and insulate and tide them over They don't the ones that they've got to be strained. Are those that expected to clear horses? in you know in the April sale at you know. In retrospect you know we talked to two Thompson Torah a couple of different times through the you know through the BS effort. And in retrospect I I mean that was courageous and it ends up. Probably being a incredibly valuable lifeline for you. Know plenty of people that Were able to turn over some merchandise essentially so They gotTA gotTa make it through into June. Now for the the June sale at at O. B. S. and then of course set to mow NEOM as well which phase tipton combining. And you know. Then there's the matter of getting that stock to out into the racetracks and the racetracks getting their two year old programs. I mean certainly. Those two year old programs are going to be delayed. I mean getting to this point. The home breads and such are in the hands of some. I know there are two year olds. That are out there training but I mean there's a lot yet to a lot of dust to settle on that front yet. I'm absolutely absolutely well and Zach Madden with us from from Buckland sales and I was intrigued by and a little surprised yesterday with Boyd I. It didn't really occur to me that and I think of farms and being them out you know out in the open and it didn't occur to me that they couldn't be doing their inspections. Their normal inspections You know to assemble their catalogs. That came as a surprise to me yesterday but I you know I think at this point. We're we're inching closer toward you know getting getting a flow so those guys are you know like you said I you know they live and die by their selection process and and you know those their group of of of You know guys at select. Those horses have a really really good. I and have a good obviously pulse on the market and everything and Yeah. I mean that that really I think hindered their You know no question and.
