"Hello and welcome to the arrowhead pride. Podcast we call from the podium. Where you get to your directly from your kansas city chiefs. I'm the editor in chief of arrowhead. Pride dot com. pete sweeney. No editor show today because of election day help. You had the opportunity to vote. But we do have from the podium for you. So you get to hear from chiefs head coach. Andy reid from his monday. Press conference and then on tuesday cheese president mark donovan joined the kansas city media as arrowhead stadium is a polling location. So i up here is chiefs head coach. Andy reid Thought over all good solid performance By the by the team a team effort again all three phases Contributed and and played well so that there are some nice adjustments that took place. Coordinators had a good game plan the then. They made a few adjustments during the game and that helps to so again without picking one person or one side by side overall. It was a good team team. Went under sam. Miller because andy. You guys had the fourth and one of the four yesterday. I'm just curious a little off the wall but his your calculus change in those situations about the quarterback sneak after what happened in in denver last year Honest with you br. I hate to admit but didn't work out so well so And i think we have other things that we can do We didn't do very well yesterday with it but For the most part. We're pretty good with good with it. Yesterday wasn't good enough to syringe. Petro goodson coach the fifth who are fake punt. I'm sorry for the first down. I know a lot of is. That'll be something that they you know. It's maybe just a hot call if it's out there. Was that something that was planned or was that something you know what i was calling from the sideline or is that just to read. The guys did on black. Yeah so we've had it up for the last couple couple weeks. It's a we were gonna do it right there so day. They've put it on and and so we have other. We have ones where we do. Read things but this one here was predetermined so connects to herbie opie includes good morning. Obviously the trade deadline is tomorrow. And so this is the obligatory question every year around this time. How how active do you think the team will be in hundred necas it this year especially getting cooler circumstances. Yeah i mean that's unique but there have been there's been movement and i don't know what takes place to the next couple of days whether it's here or anywhere else but there has been move it It's i guess it's somewhat unique and from the testing standpoint. What you have to get done before the player can actually get on the field so But we'll see how that goes here the next couple of days here in our state or so. It's gonna to adam taste good at handy. Their quarterbacks out there obviously can make a lot of big plays and they're saw who are good at voiding turnovers and other mistakes but very few pad who can do both of those things that are really high level. Can you can you. Maybe go to give us an example of some of what he does so well that him to marry those two things really well and brattle at one. Quick follow to. He's got a he's got a great vision And most of all feel in the pocket just An where things are happening and the pressures are coming from. And and then you know. Obviously when he's out in space it's great for young kids to watch him when he when he breaks pocket that his eyes are always downfield And to be able to do that with confidence you've got to know where everybody's ad and have trust in the guys and he does a nice job. I shot with that okay. Looks like you're going to be playing against christian. Mccaffrey on sunday. Assuming he's coming back this week. Which i think is what were your thoughts on him when he was coming out in the draft that year and what he had been guy. You may have considered had not been available there for you guys. Sure no he he would fit in the elephants. Well i think probably every coach would say at this lake. He was a heck of a college player and He sure doing a nice job in the nfl. So we'll have to make sure we know what's going on with him not the day you know there there are other runback is doing very well to fill an informed so they have a really along with the receiver that also plays running back so they've got three guys there that are really talented players by the way nice hat. I appreciate you break in that out. to erland. good air goes look at the stat sheet. it just kind of stood out passing orange almost at four fifteen running yards at at fifty with something. That new york was doing that kind of prevented you all getting what you wanted to click on the running game or was it. Just the adjustments george motor earlier. We know we can get these guys to the year. Now have one quick. Follow up you'll be on. Trump's follow ups So so what were what we looked at was coming in with a top five run defense and they're pretty stout upfront. Nice job. there scheme allows them to do that likewise and and so we felt like whether it's the rpo game or That was attached to the run game that That and or are throwing game at short intermediate game would be a good and so We kind of lean on those those areas and workout. Okay and follow busy. It seems like you very popular halloween costume with the the week. One outfit foggy face masks they. You can't let me down right lesson. that's all right that's a that's all. It's all good humbling. Right next to nate taylor going. You guys lead the league turnover differential right now plus nine. You're tied for having the most takeaways in the league with fourteen from your perspective. Just what of your appreciated most of your defensive coaches that out they coached guys be opportunistic and trying to get all while they practice it. Nate right you're out there. You see that. I mean they they hammer that point home and the guys believe in it and they're the ones executed on the field so they believe in it they some of. It's just being in the proper position to to be able to make an interception or not and and understand defense and so There's a lot of hours ago in from a player's standpoint. Making sure they they know that the scheme can take advantage of opportunities when the balls in the air. So you're done nice job. And then tackle on the football still formed tackling but sliding your hat to side of the ball You know has been helpful to next. Met derek goodman day coach. I do have my missouri tigers shirt on for you. But i think this might be a bit of an esoteric question for you on a monday. But you've never been shy about looking to other teams and coaches ri- is on offense. I'm just curious you know who do you look to. I mean is there anybody right now. You look at it. The college level or other coaches in the league and that there's ideas that you can pick up and learn from them now. Well i've got joe blair here who Does all the behind the scenes things With all that and spends a tremendous amount of time going through everything from high school to college pro and just a gathering ideas and then whether we rearrange the play or or we sneak it in our playbook as is and But it it stimulates something that keeps you keeps you live and current and and then also helps on the defensive side kind of knowing what's coming forward And the progression of offenses in this lake. So but i give a lot of credit to him and and how he how he goes about that and the hours any spencer time for a few more gas with the right down the line. Robert todman brooklyn but robert a coach. So we've seen chad henny a few times laying games this year and i know you're a guy that doesn't really take any lead in the nfl for granted. What are you looking for when you're trying to look to put in the second team into the game is at a certain score. You're looking ahead or a certain time in the game. Robert you know the last part cut out there say that one more time. Oh so what are you looking for. When you're trying to determine what time would wind put in the second unit is certain score certain time in the game. What are you looking for. Kind of movement on both sides Just where we're at the score obviously starts that thought process but are you. Are you safe doing that. And still You know being able to get those guys that opportunity to play and you never know when they're going to be in the game plan In a normal situation so And then listen they. All bus are tail during the week. And it gives them an opportunity to to feel a part of it and So that all of that kind of goes into the thank you day. Yeah todd lebeau good coach. I wonder if you could speak to how kinda your defensive backfield has had that works through lots of different things if you're with suspensions and injuries and and all that and how how well they ended up playing for you. I missed a this cutting out for whatever reason. I don't know what's going on so just give it to me one more time. Your defensive backfield with all the different changes and know suspensions and injuries and how they'd kind of battled through all of that and continued to kind of get the job done for you they. They've done a nice job. Mirrored sam They've they've they've done is job of keeping everything to get there and and teaching all the guys and the veteran players I think they've done. They've done that well. And the guys all trust each other and they've they've worked a man a little bit like what we talk more about. When andy heck lose the offense other do the same thing in the secondary so when a guy has an op jump in as not foreign. That's a The player feels comfortable with it and most of all the guys around him feel comfortable with it and they're at that position. You've gotta have great communications so that becomes very important. That they're they've trusted each other. Though bryn mawr for the last one good really. Good morning andy. I know that you've talked about this several times throughout the course of the summer but now that we are twenty four hours removed away from the election. And you're starting to ensure see that kind of the setup going on and it's becoming a little more real. Just how proud are you of your guys that they really led. This charged it to get that type of change done. Yeah so. I think it's it's an eight. They've been able to do it right here at the stadium and the there are a lot of things that had to go right to get that done and A lot of it had to do first of all with the players having a plan. Second of all presenting it to management and ownership and then the those people in ownership and management support him so clark han mark donovan gone above and beyond to support the players. And that's what teams all about. So there's very respect there. And that's the part. I appreciate The most just how everybody pulled together join. Get this thing done. This is advertiser content. We now have two point. Three million people incarcerated in america less than seven percent of them are incarcerated for violent crime. That's attorney geoffrey. Robinson director of the aclu trade center for justice and equality. His work inspired the making of who. We are a podcast by ben and jerry's and produced by. Vox creative who we are. A chronicle of racism in america is hosted by peabody award. Winning journalist. Carville wallace shirley. You knew this was a racist country. What does that mean for us today. The prison population in the united states has increased seven hundred percent since nineteen seventy lack americans. Make up almost forty percent of it. We didn't get here by accident. I didn't know these things. Because i hadn't been taught them. And then the question is. Why wasn't i taught them. Because this information it may be hidden but it's hiding in plain sight who we are takes historic look at the disease of racism in america and traces it back to its tipping points. This includes the tipping point. We're at today. I think. Americans are watching and thinking and looking at this issue in ways. They never have before. And that's why. I say this is our last best chance because if we don't get it right. This time were america is headed is someplace. I don't think anybody wants to go. How do we make our last best. Chance count listen to who we are a podcast by ben and jerry's and produced by box creative now streaming wherever you that your podcasts. You just heard from chiefs head coach. Andy reid and now we continue on with the president of the chiefs mark. Donovan thank you all the people who helped make today possible. A lot of effort at every stage of this process The election board in Specifically in just helping us identify the obstacles and then identify ways to get over those obstacles. i would tell you that I've been here since about five forty five this morning and it is absolutely. The most efficient voting police fishing. I've ever been involved in so hopefully for those people who are in line and can vote here. Go to cheese dot com. Check your zip code and come here because it's really efficient so we've been again good morning so far but that take your question. Let's go first to her bt. Ob good morning. Thank you for taking a moment. Some busy day. You open two zero six. And i'll i'm wondering general impressions and the feedback that you got from the crowd for arrowhead being a polling station and then lastly unnoticed coach. Andy reid was there at at six thirty vote. How many other people from the organization used arrowhead is voting place. So let me start with party. Your question So hundred you know. I haven't been a lot of polling stations as they open the gates but I don't think there very very many around the city around the country where people were tutoring as they walked in the door I think has something to do with being at the stadium It was a pretty energetic atmosphere out. There they were a lot of people in line. They they poured in One of the big benefits we have. Here's the space the fact that we can do most of our lines indoors And there's a lot of space obviously socially distance and then we With all the new machines we have over forty machines. That's what i've been doing. All morning is getting people from registration to the voting machines. And there's just plenty to to utilize so In terms of and others who voted here So i've been the one one of the team of people who've been taking registration devoting. So i've actually been able to interact with a lot of our employees and thanked him for voting we every level of the of the organization here One of them in particular was a security guard. Who literally just got off work for working the nightshift rolled-over got the vote. And you gotta here so really efficient and really working better than expected next to adam. Teicher go he mortar. Mark had a ticket question for you today on. Can you just give us a sense of how through four home. Games that syrian going from the team perspective any regrets y twenty two percent is the optima seems to be the sweet spot there and brattle one quick follow up to So the ticket process has been Very interesting for us. Because it's such unchartered territory. We initially proposed Close to thirty one percent capacity deduct archer again. Another person that we've really spent a lot of time with and again an educated Just how the medical side looks at this. And how do we make it as safe as possible. So through those discussions got down and twenty two I don't think there's a real magic number in twenty two to thirty one. It's really about being socially distance possible in the in the stands big big advantage. And we have a couple of actually. The first is obviously an outdoor stadium. which plays into it and then being able to test all of our suite holders was a big plus so that helped us with capacity in terms of the process there are a lot of learning's really proud of the team. We were obviously the first in the league to do this. Because of the first game but As i've said before we we knew we were on a stage that was being closely monitored by not only our league but other leagues on how this was going to work and to be able to do successfully as we've done so far Again to operate expertise in new space for us all That's been really the process one learning that we took away from it which I would tell you that we didn't really see this when we put the projections out. But it's been pretty clear to us is the pod. Sizes of each individual group has ebbed and flowed. So you know there's a theory at least internally with us that that'll continue changes people get more comfortable or less comfortable with spikes that we don't have spikes that for the most far will be feedback with god is. I'm comfortable in my podcasts. At four to six whatever it is and what are we. Seeing trending is positive have gotten smaller from the beginning. They're starting to get bigger. We'll see what happens at thanksgiving if we have any spikes after that but we do hope that those pods will continue to get bigger. Because i don't actually give us the ability to get even closer to that twenty two percent when you're dealing with pods and trying to stick them into places this social distancing create capacity issues for us so that's probably the biggest learning took away from it The final point. I'll make to that adam. Is you know the the clients and the adherence by our fans has been really good We there's always gonna be exceptions and we've managed as well as they possibly could But the key is that we're trying to faith venue so people can have arrowhead experience and cheese. Football live and in person and a lot of that is on her fans and we said from the beginning plan is only good is compliance. And they've done a really good job with and my next question is assuming there's going to be one or more playoff games. Played at arrowhead this year. Can you say definitively. Yet the tickets will be sold for those games. Whatever the capacity might be. I think in two thousand and twenty. It's hard to say anything. Definitively we fully plan and expect to be at least twenty two percent capacity. And we're working through a lot of different scenarios right now to make sure that if the opportunity presents itself were able to capitalize on that and get even more arcane in ireland. It's going to. Matt mcmullen go. Hey mark so there's been some planning in this like you like you've mentioned many people involved coordination trying to make today a reality but now that it's actually happening. You're seeing it in action. What's this mean to you. In the organization. The biggest thing that comes across the pride you know this is such a great example of an organization just working together to you. Guys have heard the story. We started with What our platform is gonna be to try to address covid and social justice it also converge same time on us and we would have players and said. Where do you guys want to focus our time where we want to focus our resources. What do we wanna make priority And we came out of that meeting with three priorities. The first voting The second being finding ways to support local minority businesses and the third being tried to do something more than we already do with city year and other programs in the education area just because of what covert is doing to those areas and that turned into Three tiers of focus specifically on voting. We started with a wariness. How do we make sure people are aware that their vote matters. And how do we get that message out there. And how do we support that with our platform both the chiefs platform and the players individual platforms that turn to once. You got to awareness and education how to register to vote so a ton of work done with rise devote a ton of work done with the league. I you saw the video of patrick and tyrant standing in front of our whole our whole team. All of our coaches during training camp and just sharing their personal experience and how important it was to them and really just sharing that they can be a part of this and everybody in the room should be a part of it and then you know all of those things were done early on and we can't sort of meeting and talking about things that we could do the idea of will could we vote at arrowhead came up in a meeting and that launched the ho- campaign to try to make it a reality. I will share with you that a lot of those meetings were great on paper. You walk out of there and makes perfect sense. Let's go to space. That's where the election board came in and a lot of different people helped us through that process. process culminated in not too long ago. The election boards saying that Although it's a great idea. They're just too many hurdles and we finally had to say what's it gonna take And that's really. What launched the idea of purchasing new machines and so we the cheese organization the hunt family and patch mahomes and his fifteen and the homeys Foundation came together and said that's what's gonna take we're committed to this point. Let's go so six figure investment by us that not only will legitimately impact the community today but will impact this community for years and years to come. Hopefully ten years to come with these machines. Continue to be used. And then i'll finally say for anybody who's been here today. Anybody comes out today. If you experience voting arrowhead. I think they're gonna want this to be only location for a long time to come next to nate. Taylor gordon eight. Mr good to see you actually answered One of my questions about the future. But i do have to for you i is do. Does the organization know how many people were to register through the program. And then i'll have to follow. So i'd answer that question. Couple one Late in the process. We really focused on awareness. Who could actually vote here. And we didn't want situations where people coming out here and not being able to vote and creating more problems. So that's when we got really aggressive on our website with information specifically if you gonna choose dot com slash vote right now. Just look at the code. If you're in those zipcode and you're registered voter you can vote here. So that was the first. Secondly we didn't do the math on exactly how many people could potentially those here We just said what we went to the election board and said what do you think the capacity should be and then we expanded beyond that. I will tell you that we've got plenty of staff. We've got plenty machines I haven't seen any lines out here today. And i i drove by a couple of lines at five thirty this morning and various spots where there are already out of the facility in down the street and then finally i would tell you i think Between five hundred thousand people have already voted here And like. I said we can take a lot more. So open people here that you cannot and then secondly mark a couple guys are explain this on zooms during the weeks of them. It appears as some guys voted. Absentee in their home states is that the case is there. A percentage of guys who would vote say today in the city missouri area or did most players already early in terms of absentee ballots. Have real specific on that one in talking to the players. A number of them are registered in their home states. So they've done What they need to do to vote absentee Mostly what i've seen here staff. Obviously were in game prep so You know and he was here when i got here. He voted and we had a few people. Vote then But then once we got into our normal game day schedule. It's going to be tough for them to get here until afternoon. It's next to matt derek. Good man hey mark. Thanks for your time. You talked a little bit about the future. But you don't specifically how do you hope. And envision this going forward is is arrowhead has voting place you think possible likely for all elections or just certain elections And you know it could expand further. I mean would you like to see all jackson. County residents being able to go to narrow head. Yeah we'll work with the election board On exactly how we can expand and what makes the most sense in terms of how many elections we actually were having that conversation earlier today. in between Voting activities. And if like. I said if if you actually come here and see what we're doing and how we're doing it. There's a lot of interest in utilizing this a lot more We'll come down the schedules. They look down to You know make sure that we have availability here on those days I think as you know. We've we've shut the offices today so all that conversation i was having with myself about Being game day mode actually not engage them today because we gave the get a day off. the The reality is we. We've already had discussions. We'll continue discussions about using it again. The commitment that we made the purchase machines is something we want to utilize so As much as these machines can be utilized. We want to do that. It's like we got former hands up. We'll go right down the line. Starting with darren go at their mark. I'm gonna take of journalists privilege on this. I want to thank you first of all for what you all did. No back in august when we spoke to press you on it and you didn't wanna reveal the plans about using era at the time but i. I'm thankful that you did and glad that you did But i have two questions. I'm asking i one i but the last time we spoke i asked you about the fact that hi v. didn't have stores in the third and fifth district. I would like to know where you are at with those conversations harvey regarding the food desert noon comes conversation. What does the organization willing to do to see any partnership where this heavy price chopper. Other businesses reflect. Not only the bottom line that she's but the fans and community calls home or should it be an organized boycott of hy-vee until they do and then i have another question for you or and you're in a lot of different directions there so let me first say. Thank you for Asking the question originally and getting that out there As i said at that time we felt competent tonight. We're going to have arizona's those location but given all the obstacles that we knew of and then if you add all the other obstacles they said we encountered as we go. I'm just really really happy. They were here today. in terms of the food desert and the challenges that Really are east of truth and and locations that we've done a lot of research on One of our focuses has an organization. Those three pillars is those local minority businesses so specifically to grocery and food desert We are in discussions right now. Two different organizations that we're gonna make some donations to talk our players about matching donations and doing things with their social platforms. Create awareness of some of these minority owned businesses and in some are food. Restaurant related That are in that corridor that you know have the challenges of competing in a business to begin with and then the challenge of kobe and what that does to so many businesses. So that's a real focus of those three pillars that i talked about And specifically the. Hi i'm just gonna reiterate what i said. The last time we had this discussion. Which is i know. Heavy and others have had a lot of discussions about making efforts in in the food. Desert in that corridor I was conversation earlier last week. Actually with john blue furred who a as a ton of work or truman former ceo. There was done a ton of work in that community. And i know there are a lot of conversations going on i am not privy to the decisions or plans hy-vee others having but I know in something as we are made aware of them. Were kinda find ways to support and and then last week. I asked patrick. What's next following the election to what you said and i quote we actually be. We are actually going to be able to have to me with mark donovan here either this week or next week to continue to strive to get more black owned businesses the support they need. I think what does meeting that we're going to have mark. He's already had a lot of great ideas that he's learned from people in the community. That are out there. I had to making change happen now. You mentioned earlier about support minority on business. Sometimes the political ear. My means you know white women because that's considered a minority. So what does this support. Look like have you made a. Will you be making spending commitment or policy to less in locally. Black owned businesses to make sure that patrick's words have meaning and action behind them. Yeah i think you make a very good point. And that's something we've learned as we've gone through this process that There are a lot of different organizations trying to support minority businesses. And then you get into civics and how you define minority and then what business are are getting funded actually been educated in terms of their certain businesses in the minority Businessworld that have the ability to get banked by normal banks. There are a lot of businesses. They don't and we're trying to thread that needle. We're trying to make sure that we're doing things to support across a pretty broad base of the have been made well aware of some of the Issues that have been raised in the community in the urban community about support organizations and where they're putting their money and we've been educated by the experts that people in the community so what patrick was The conversations that myself and sharp and others have had With leaders in this in this community who are in the space so We take it very seriously. We take responsibility to try to do it. The right way We are close to Finalizing two different donations to two different organizations that are in the community and those specifically we had that conversation talked about signed ways that we can even target. Our donations are support to true Local minority black owned businesses And that came up with our players. And that's something that they brought to us and said that's an important distinction and that's a little continue to focus to do three more. We'll go todd steven than sam. The closedown mark. You've been in this league for a long time. And i know there's been a few years ago. I guess i don't want where's your mouth about being proud or anything but how much i guess enthusiasm you see on the organization side across league not just in kansas city on actually working with players and coming together and doing some of these these things instead of being kind of adversarial like it seemed like it was a few years ago. Yeah clark said something early on in this process about You know there hasn't been a two thousand nineteen there hasn't been in two thousand and twenty times very different Than they've been in the past and we're we're all in a different space One of the things that really resonated with me and with others in our organization about the platforms we picked and specifically the voting platform was in this day and age with all the discord to find a platform that everyone in our organization can get the nonpartisan but is about getting people to express and use their voice to make their choice. And patrick really well the other day. I'll i'll promoting is go get registered and use your voice. Make your decisions for you personally. Use your voice And i've said this before we're an organization family and thinking about family is we and we're example this. We got representatives on all ending to the spectrum from a political standpoint from all kinds of different standpoint. so i'm trying to find some platform that we could all get behind Is not always easy. And this one really resonated with a lot of our players a lot of organization. I would tell you that it's your energy point You know the energy around this project in our building has been really charts and again in the space where he and right now when you got two hundred plus employees and many of them in that younger generation. They are looking for ways to be helpful. They're looking ways to participate and be active. And in that demographic we've got a wide spectrum of us this is a great place where they can come together at a time when it's really hard for us physically now to come together It's been there's been a lot of energy in the building and there's a lot of real joy Today in staff that have been working here since about three thirty this morning. Steve loss but steve. Hey mark thank you for doing You talked about guys using their platform into organization getting behind. You know those guys especially iran and also patrick but there there's been some some a little bit of pushback and i'd like to know what your messages to those fans who just want your organization in your players just stick to sports Because they say that sports and politics don't go together. I think our players who've done a job. And i could do on that point when the video came out This summer from the players. Really calling out the league You know the message. We provided that day is still the message that we live by. Which is we support our players. We love our players and we're proud him Know as i said to the point about family there are players in our locker at every end of the spectrum so we have the same discussions internally that are happening in in the broader media space And there's going to be opinions on all sides We respect those Men we're going to continue to try to find platforms like this guy that we believe are truly impartial and sam mcdowell but sam and nicer all. I wonder if you could give us a glimpse of what your day today. Looks like i mean you said to get out there. Five forty five. What are your sort of assignments would lead them out so interesting. I drove past my polling station about thirty. The place i typically go and the line was completely out the door all the way down the street so i was happy to come out here The first thing i do i voted And i actually go through the process. That i was going to help manage so i voted here and And then what. I've done is Become we're called election judges So i'm actually a part of a team of a number of people who are once. The person comes in registers. They get the ticket to vote. They give us the ticket. We then go to the machine. Explain how the machine works explain. How the ballot works and make sure that everything is correct in that process and then we make sure that that voter gets to the ballot box and actually put their own ballot in the box. So i've done a little bit of Walker on cheerleading thanking For the people who have been here a lot longer. And we'll be a lot longer than i am and will And i've done a lot of conversations had a lot of conversations with people who have worked numerous elections in this community in first of all. Thank them for what they do. But secondly just trying to get educated on you what. We're doing what we can do better. What's different and as i'm said pretty consistently on this. Call the overwhelming response. But we got to vote here more often.

Practical support and how to access it

"What practical support is available to me during the pandemic and how can I access it? Hello, I'm M abhi and Welcome to our coronavirus series of talking cancer a podcast from McMillan and Boots where I get to talk to experts to get answers to the questions. McMillan is hearing the most off today. I'm joined by McMillan's chief medical officer the brilliant Rosie Loftus and Boots his chief pharmacist Mark Donovan to talk about the Practical support available for those affected by cancer and now people can access that support. I know our colleagues really value their ability to make a difference in people's lives as they go through their experience with cancer will all touch on the latest government guidance and what it means in practice for people living with cancer. If you are asked to attend an appointment, please do keep it and feel confident in doing so we'll also be hearing some updates from Mandy things that keep you connected with people. It's not the same as in person, but it is a good substitute if these are your circumstances now, we know that these recent changes page. Make some people feel very anxious and worried. Please have a listing back to episode 2 of the podcast if you're looking for some guidance and helpful tips about managing your mental health during the pandemic. We're McMillan and we're kicking cancer Rosie and Mark welcome back lovely to have you with us now as in the other episodes we've recorded. I'm going to time stamp this and we're recording this on the 23rd of October 2020 and all the information that we talked about is correct at the time of recording in episode one we discussed what people can do if they're struggling with the new often virtue of two ways of interacting with GPS Specialists and Healthcare professionals, the millions support line team are still receiving some calls about this. So I'd recommend that anyone worried about that particular issue liquid back to episode one for more information loads of great advice there. However, for some people physical appointments and treatments in hospitals GP surgeries and pharmacies are going ahead but Standardly people may be feeling very anxious about the safety of this while covid-19 is still very much present Rosie what precautions are in place in hospitals and Health Care settings at the moment and how are they making these environments as safe as they possibly can for patients? Yeah. Thanks emigrate to be back. Thank you very much. And as you say we talked about some aspects of this last time obviously, it's totally natural to worry about going for appointments. All of us are anxious at the best of times where when doing this but of course now, there's all the added concerns and Logistics on top of that but you know, he was telling me that actually they're really reassured by all the precautions that they see once they arrive. So again last time we did talk about that shift from not quite so many face-to-face appointments and some telephone or video. So that does actually help because that means there are actually less people going through the hospital and of course when you get there, you'll might have a timed entry you might be asked to log In your vehicle until your appointment time and some places are even giving page or alerts out. I know one of our McMillan information centers that same close to one of the hospitals. In fact, right next door. They've opened up their car park to allow people to part there and indeed if you aren't traveling by car, they're also allowing people to wait inside and the hospitals just buzzing straight across when they're ready for the patient off. And of course, there's all the cleanliness precautions Jetta at the doors PPE and for the staff in particular and then the red and green channels in the hospital so areas where cancer patients would be kept well away from potential infection risk and deep cleaning is just going on relentlessly. So I suppose I'd say there are so many precautions in place. The most important thing is that if you are asked to attend an appointment, please do keep it and feel confident in doing so and one last thing just following up on some of the conversation we had last time about the challenges of not being dead. Take someone to your appoint. Yes. Yes. Some of that is lightning up a little bit in some particular circumstances not across the board, but it it's really important so do ask because it might actually be possible that you can take someone to some of your appointments actually from a personal perspective a friend of mine one for her yearly check-up post treatment for breast cancer yesterday and the situation about taking a couple had changed so so she was able to take somebody with her not all the way. That's great. You make sure you ask. Yeah. Absolutely you did just touch on that lightly not everybody is able to be picked up from the front doorstep and dropped at the at the door of the hospital her many people public transports. The only way they're going to get to these appointments and that has its own level of risk and its own level of anxiety as well. What steps can patients take to ensure they are traveling safely themselves really understandable that you're going to be worrying about this and actually you might be worrying about it and feel I really can't bother people. Hospital or my health care teams to talk about this but actually you absolutely should it may well be that there are options that they can do to modify something simple like Changing Times of appointments. So you're not traveling that busy times and might be able to actually organize things so that for example a blood test might be closer to home. So so please do ask if there are any options to explore if you do have to travel then definitely follow the guidelines travel in a bubble where possible if you've got to travel in a taxi, for example where a mass can open the window and not follow the guidelines which you will find online and I know also that some of our McMillan information centers have been linking locally to see what transport services are available. So again, just whereas to assist with this if you're worrying about this ask there's so much talk of what's online and there's so much information online and I know for for some people who maybe don't have access to computers job Or a little bit older and there are people on the end of a phone on there at the hospitals at appointments that and people are willing to talk and explain through the processes that you might have to that. You might expect them very definitely again. I can only reiterate that on that men and support line. Is there also and we'll be able to answer these queries a direct you to any of our local services. So absolutely people are available at the edge of a phone be that your health care team or indeed the mcmillans support line. So absolutely you don't have to go online that there will be someone at the end of a telephone line. And so please pick up the phone and asked I think you know, when you have a cancer diagnosis, it's again creating levels of anxiety. Very basically though. How does the shielding measure that one place in lockdown Mary with these the the new three-tier system that's been introduced by the government recently. So, I think the most important thing is that you do need to check the local restrictions and guidelines. For your area and if you've got any specific concerns about this, then do check in again with your health care team. They might be able to advise about any adjustments and be able to reassure you about precautions. We are advised that there will be a letter coming from the government to people who are on the extremely vulnerable list and to explain to them what advice they need to take and that length is is immanent but I think it's really important at the moment with the rapid change. We're seeing and different geographical areas that you make sure that you're up to date on what the local advice is Margaret. Yes, Rosie mentioned obviously for pharmacies across the UK the changing restrictions and tear system is meaning that you guys as well having to be quite reactive quickly to to make the experience of being able to get along bonuses or access to information from you guys available quickly and safely. Yes. I am I Rosie it is confusing isn't it? And t as in England firebreaks lockdowns in in school? Northern Ireland and Wales. It is very important that you stay close to the local guidance and guidance on travel but for pharmacies are open as as they have been all along through this pandemic and and we continue to be open for advice and you can access your medication and there are rules and support on on doing that. So so feel free not only need to access them physically on the High Street, but also ring ahead and to Rosie's point, you know pharmacies are available to advise. If you have any questions on on how to access medicine or get them delivered or how to help order your prescription with your GP too. Lovely. Thank you. If there was one starting point that people can go to what's your advice about the first starting point for God in your local area many people will have already been on the gulf. UK website which is updated regularly, and actually you will be able to look for your local area on there. What I would also say is we talked on the phone. When we were talking previously about the map milenkovic Hub, which has lots of information to support cancer patients through the pandemic and on that Hub. You will find the update option but also with a link straight through to the gov UK because obviously if things as we said last time sometimes things get changed on a Saturday evening at 10:00, but you can get to the gov UK website from that map milenkovic and Mark once again, you know, the Practical resources available to be able to access medication from your perspective where where do people go immediately to find jobs that well, you can contact your local pharmacy. Of course, they will still be access and support for medication access for food delivery slots are still available etc. For those people home building or a vulnerable. We also have launched recently a virtual boots McMillan information pharmacist, actually. So so you could go Two Boots.com forward slash McMillan & Pub. An appointment with a pharmacist to be able to help talk you through any concerns or questions that you have around medication or wider issues with your cancer experience and we'd be able to jump in that way which is something that we started to bring in at the beginning of the pandemic earlier this year and something that many patients have hand care is to have have begun to access. So it's another way of life some of that advice there's lots of ways and lots of support available. So look at MacMillan support helpline and website as well as the boots website to be able to access that support Boise. It's always a difficult conversation and subject matter, but we need to talk about a very sensitive area that people are struggling with which is palliative care and especially palliative care in the community and the the vehicle T in contacting the appropriate Healthcare professionals, what practical steps can people take to understand more about their own or family members palliative care options during this time? Awesome, as you say palliative care is so very sensitive at all times and even more so a more challenging with all the restrictions at present, but I think the first thing I want to say is that for more than thirty years as a GP a really can't emphasize enough how important it is to actually have conversations understanding how very difficult that is the actually it's really important and I don't mean they're just conversations with your health care team, but also with your family and friends it's not easy starting those conversations, but over the years, I've seen a huge benefits as a result of those very open conversations. So in terms of practical, you know you it's important to say that palliative care is still available whether that's through District nurses GPS and Specialists or or at the hospice and some of these Services may be doing less face-to-face visits right now and trying obviously wrong. You reduce the risk and the spread of infection, but they all still there. They are still accessible and they have so much to offer in terms of supporting with physical symptoms and also emotional and practical support. It's a very isolating times, you know, without the pandemic. So to to know that this is still available and with conversations and bought some some persistence and supports that that kind of level of support is still there. Yeah, and and I I just had that I think also be really clear when you're engaging with these surfaces off then we'll contact numbers or available to you and and you know, which ones to use for when in many instances there will be a 24 hour line for you to access for queries. So do it may ask, you know to to know where people will be at the end of the line. And again, of course McMillan website has lots of information relating to palliative care some of it that would help you start those conversations job. And of course never forget that you kind of course contact the support line as well. Thank you Rosie. Thank you. Mark questions about cancer boots and McMillan A by your side took the moment. You're diagnosed through your treatment and beyond our boots McMillan information pharmacists are on hand with Specialists support from helping you make sense of your diagnosis back to advice about living with cancer. You can find them in your local boots Pharmacy or online via video appointment visit boots.com for more information subject to Farmer availability. Amanda and I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and June first phase of code reader was classed as extremely clinically vulnerable. So shielded at home for a hundred days. We have much contact with anybody. I found it really hard to get a food slot start with but then through the local Council I was able to get a secured time slot on the supermarket of my choice and also they would check just to make sure and make me aware that there were local charity group setting up to do shopping as he needed it and the hospital how much they're covid-19 case on Point Break arrival clean masks temperature check kind of the questionnaire every visit temperature again, when you got to the department you were going to hand sanitizer of a sanitized within an inch of my life during that that particular. If there's a standard if you need if you can't find it you need to be able to ask someone you get quite resourceful as your cancer experience goes on to me. That's where my job I mean you all like the 50 mergency service you're on speed dial. It is developed making connections with people the online Forum on McMillan website for me there a secondary support groups stay connected with people things that keep you connected with people. It's not the same as in person, but it is a good substitute if these are your circumstances them some really useful tips there from Monday Mark. Now this episode on practical support you mentioned earlier a law, which I want to know a little bit more about cuz it sounds very exciting. It's the perfect opportunity really right now to delve into the wonderful support on offer from the partnership between boots and McMillan. So tell us a little bit off more about that. Well, yes the partnership started actually in in 2009. I was there at the beginning seems an awful long time ago, but I remember being really excited about this partnership as a wage. Started together McMillan's a wonderful charity and as a pharmacist the whole organization got behind the partnership and it was raising money through doing silly things of colleagues up and down the UK you through all of our different stores, you know, I at one time a number of years ago. I I even ran the London Marathon my legs are still recovering actually eight years on thought it was but but we were all behind this wonderful partnership and raised a lot of money over nineteen million so far with her boots McMillan partnership, this partnership has created found deeper connections than just a fundraising partnership and and soon after the partnership started sadly, you know, I had a real close up experience of the power of the partnership. My father was just diagnosed with cancer a mesothelioma, you know a cancer the lining of the lung developed over many years through exposure from asbestos and and he was diagnosed in the birth. And sadly passed away the following March and he was he was you know, my hero. I loved him so much and and lots of other people loved him too. And and he had a quite a complicated life experience of cancer. It was it was painful and he was in and out of hospice and there was lots of lots of messing around and and I had been a pharmacist that point for a number of years and I dealt with people, you know affected by cancer on a on a day-to-day basis I guess but it wasn't until I was on the other side of that experience. I realized that we could do better as pharmacists as pharmacists teens Rosie just mentioned it earlier about the power of conversations and and I couldn't agree more that didn't like to talk about things. He didn't complain about anything. He you know, he didn't want to worry any any of us really but I do remember having a conversation with him about dying, you know, and and like I said Rosie said it's so important. Have you know many of our conversations when he was going through? This was was you know, I've had a good day or a bad day. And then occasionally we we had some opportunities just to talk a little bit about deeper and I value those conversations and I remember a conversation turned out to be 2 weeks before he passed away. I promised him something then that something good would come out of this experience that he was having. You know, I I saw how much of a difference that his Pharmacy made in taking some of the hassle out of his experience, you know home is it's a whole load of things to cope with when you go in through cancer and I I know the pharmacy didn't think that they were helping that much and having that much of an impact, but they really were so long. So we we took that away and developed this boots McMillan Information Program just to take this partnership to a deeper more connected sort of level and and and then, you know recognition Using that beauty and feeling good is important for people when experiencing cancer as well. So we then developed boots McMillan Beauty je vais a role as well. And and as of the end of August, we we have over 2,000 boots McMillan information pharmacist. We have over a thousand boots McMillan beauty advisors, you know, they fundraise they advised they improve local connections with cancer teams and connect Healthcare professionals too. And it's wonderful to see it grow. It's wonderful to be a partnership that is more than just fundraising because I know our colleagues really value their ability and to make a difference in people's lives as they go through their experience with cancer. What was your dad's name? His name was Grenville Grenville. Thank you very much a legacy a legacy and home. Such an incredible journey you and melon have had together. Just tell us a little bit about as well that the boots McMillan information pharmacists another it's a very specific role that has been created. What could what can somebody expect if they are hoping to have a chat or an appointment with one of these guys? Will they get extra training for MacMillan, you know wider support or pharmacist own know about medicines and can advise around side effects and what to expect but you know, there's there's other things isn't there, you know, the fatigue the I was fascinated, you know that how to look after your skin if you're going through radiotherapy and watch soaps to use and you know, we we've trained our Pharmacists and our Beauty advises to to help on those more practical different areas that perhaps wage who who are affected by cancer don't want to ask their consultant about that they fear or they hadn't and they remember later on, you know, our boots McMillan information pharmacist said there to answer those questions signposts log. The services they can get identified by a little McMillan badge that they were in in our pharmacies or if you go onto a boots.com you can you could find your closest information pharmacist for you to go in and have a chat to really do you need to make an appointment to go in Marko. I mean if you're there and you see something I didn't know that about the that's how you identify boots my billing information pharmacist by the badge. I didn't know that so that's that's that's great. That's great to know. Yeah, and you can you can go onto boots.com forward slash McMillan and and you can search where your local store is and we took you whether or not that store has a boots McMillan information pharmacist or a boots McMillan beauty advisor. You don't need to make an appointment. You can just go and see them and they'll be able to answer your questions and sign post on and off further advice. And and like I said, you know through the pandemic we've developed the roll into a virtual information pharmacist. Now you do need to make an appointment with that of course, but you go online to make that appointment log. And and then we will connect you with a a virtual pharmacist. Like I said and you can talk to them through an application and see them ask their questions. If you age afraid of going out or can't get out you can still have the service and and a number of people are finding that really helpful as as you know, they struggle getting out and about at this time. Absolutely. I used to I remember when my mom was sick. She was she was so concerned with her feet not being really dry and an uncomfortable and we used to be in Boots the whole time making sure her faith Comforts those things. There's the Practical things isn't it? The little things they make a huge difference like a huge difference indeed Rosie McMillan has got other Partnerships as well in place to enable people with cancer to get practical support. What does that look like? What else is there that it might be worth exploring. We do have lots of other Partnerships as well. We've partnered with Nationwide for example for over 25 years and off. So Lloyds Bank Bank of Scotland and Halifax and the joy of this is that this is how we're able to help people with one of those worries Finance is a huge worry for people going through cancer for for lots of reasons. So and has trained the staff at these Banks so that they actually understand the specific impact of cancer on people's finances. And so that being trained in that they can then offer their expert practical advice in relation to managing finances personal banking mortgage has credit cards. So again, there's more information about these Partnerships on our website. So please do access them Mark Rosie as always just so full of information and great great advice and support package. If I'm going to I'm going to try and pin you both down to try and highlight the one piece of advice that you think is going to be the most useful for people who are finding themselves really struggling at the moment with practical support during this hideous job. And demek Mark. What what would your what would your piece of advice be? I'd say talk to people. That's what I'd say. I think there's lots and lots of advice around. Lots of people don't know what that advice is or supporters, but talk to McMillan talk to our pharmacists talk to you consultant. Don't suffer all on your own. There are people around to help Rosie opening. You're going to Waco that I'm going to work over there and I'm going to be really sneaky. I know you said you were going to try and pin us down him a but can I can I go for two and then you can actually to be fair it's because they're not really mine. They're both from a patient who spoke to me this week about her lockdown experience and as we know it's so hard also for family and friends when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer and often. It's such a struggle for those people to understand how best to help and support and at the moment it it that's again even more difficult because there are so so many fewer options off. And what she said was that actually she found it really helpful to just directly asked family and friends and ask for specific help. Okay, and she said things like can we have a telephone call and woke up her or an online couple or could you get to the shops and get me this and maybe if it was a treatment day, you know, could you cook an extra couple of portions of food and just leave them on the doorstep and not wishing to encourage any infection risk, obviously, so really practical things and the other thing she said which was obviously music to her ears and and great because that that that you know, that's what melons here for but she said the other thing she found really useful was what she described as many as clear and understandable information and just to know that Matt Millen was there and had her needs at its heart. So I suppose what I'd be saying is please do use all the information and support that MacMillan and boots have had, you know be that members online community for peer support all the support line and a nod See all the boot services that Mark has talked about and and all this information. You'll you'll find on the website. It's absolutely brilliant, and I just, you know, it's encouraging everybody to to pass this podcast around so that we can we can just get as many people to know about all the Fantastic stuff that is out there in this incredibly difficult time Mark Rosie. Thank you very much as always a pleasure speaking to you.

Cancer And The New Normal

"What does it mean to be living with cancer during a global pandemic? Hello I'm moab welcome to talking cancer. You might have listened to series of the podcast this year when I met with some really extraordinary people to have honest conversations about living with cancer. Well, things have changed little since we last met I. Think it's fair to say and at times it feels like we're living in a new world entirely. That's why McMillan have teamed up with boots bring you a very special corona virus series talking cancer to address some of your most common concerns around living with cancer. During the global pandemic, you need to feel empowered you need to look after yourself to would. You mind if my loved one who's in the car park on speakerphone all you know you can ask to record the consultation discussing it with your doctor or consultant and asking the questions. There are often options that you won't think of today joined by Mellon's chief medical officer. Rosie. Leftist and boots is chief Pharmacist Mark Donovan to talk about the services available practical advice. You'll need to navigate this new normal with cancer. With McMillan and we're talking cancer. Rosie mark it's lovely to have you with us. Really Nice to have you along. Now we're recording this on the eleventh of September Twenty Twenty and a specific about the date because lots of people are trying to give people some answers when the god is feels like it's coming from a frequently changing landscape sometimes on a daily basis. So let's start at what is the beginning of many people's experience with cancer we know. We know because lots of people getting in touch with Macmillan at the moment because they're either being diagnosed with cancer over the phone or receiving information about treatment vibraphone phone, and that must be incredibly hard to take in when you don't have a loved one or a care with you for support Rosie I'm going to start with you. What kind of advice can you give people who are preparing to potentially receive information about a diagnosis? Or treatment difficult treatment over the phone. Yeah. Thanks summer. As you say, you know we've had a huge number of calls to all support line about their son. You know as we all know receiving a diagnosis of cancer is frightening in the best of times you know it turns your world upside down in in a matter of seconds. But when you add on the extra precious of what's happening in the world at the Moment, with covert, this just amplifies all those feelings. So you know at a time when you're thinking, you're gonNA be receiving diagnosis. You might not actually have your head in a space where you might be able to think about some practical things I am but actually patience Taylor's that some of these things are really really helpful and sometimes actually give them that feeling of being able to take a bit of sense of control back. So I think some of the top tips we heard from people are you know making sure that you've got yourself a quiet uncomfortable space some people will be in house shares. So you know also do you need it to be confidential planning ahead for someone to be with you and again patients of told us that actually sometimes actually doing this in their own home has increased the opportunity for them to have somebody with. Them I'm right down you questions and you queries and what it is, you want to hear from from the consultation and really small thing. But actually again, lots of people said it to as is that an when hospitals phone, sometimes it will come up as one of those withheld numbers I am also used to those nuisance calls at home, but you do recognize that might be the case so that you don't miss the call. Ask them if it's possible for you to record it and remember the other person at the end of the phone, they can't see you. So they don't know how you feeling in response to what they're saying they don't know what you're hearing and actually what your understanding. So if you have questions, you don't understand stuff do feel free do feel empowered to us for that clarity mark from the pharmacy world's perspective it must've been imas be a very challenging time. For you to be able to keep track and keep up with the changing landscape and the recommendations has it been a challenge you to stay helpful to people receiving diagnosis in this time? Yes I. Think it is difficult. We understand people are anxious both for themselves for their families we have stayed open on high streets. Of course. I. Been Able to provide advice for people who are affected by Sandoz who accounting for people who are affected by cancer. and. We. Are. Navigating. A, new will to both of you have mentioned in the new normal this new world and you know I know as a former GP rosie video consultations of false becoming the new normal and that I may not has its own stresses you mentioned confidentiality. You know there's I'd be wary about that possibly But also you know there are lots of people that really aren't very tight tech savvy of the might be super stressed about setting is opposition light this all right through to kind of being able to. Talk. To somebody intimately a GP over zoom colored or a phone call about symptoms I'm Rosie. What she? What's your advice? How can you reassure people that that this might not be quite as invasive and traumatic as it sounds it's been an absolute sea change You know in a way of consulting I mean many of us. You know as you said, I'm a former GP for thirty years and I've been using telephoning in consultations for quite some time but but you know I in specific instances for specific. Circumstances. But the scale of the change in the way that we're we're consulting of the speed it's happened as just being as you say, quite quite phenomenal and it's a new way for all of us and I think we're really learning which treading carefully and there's no one size fits all you know. Some people have told US actually that they've quite appreciated the access to the GP on the efficiency and that it gives them but it's not gonNA work every body and it's really important. That people find their individual way. The video adds another layer onto that and I'm certainly not the most tech savvy person in the world you know I'd get a youngster from my house to help with that you might want to do a dry run with a friend. Am even I'm and I think it's still also really important to say that if it's not working for you, you need to tell the clinician it's not working for you. You need to feel empowered to say that but definitely feel okay to say look there are things I need. To feel I need to see your face to face at might we're working on actually on some top ten tips and we're working together with both patients and professionals so that we don't make it assumptions about what is working for people. I'm and we're hoping to put those on the website ready very shortly. So and do lookout for those have sounds up city perfect market I. Mean you know I it's coming to tragic cost obviously with key with covert and the pandemic are you seeing any benefits in in store with foams from having time? To speak to people, are there any upsides in in your world or I think Rosie said the way patients interact with? GP's and other healthcare professionals has changed quite dramatically patients can access the GP. Practice a slightly different way and and I think that has provided opportunities for pharmacists and GP's to work together and we would want to encourage that So so at GP's refer people into pharmacy, send their prescriptions, electrically how Aska pharmacy teams to provide at further advice or oh at feedback 'em into the GP. At practice some of the interactions away having through pharmacy teams on the High Street of course, and. During the heater pandemic, am we launched online boots, McMillan Information Pharmacy Service we have over two thousand boots, McMillan Information Pharmacists The can advise on a day to day basis. Any matter and we will work closely with Macmillan to refer them into the Macmillan website and support lines to and the boots McMillan Information Pharmacy scheme where we have over two thousand information pharmacies in our stores and over lockdown, we've launched an online boots information pharmacists service. Hosted by shielding pharmacists where people can make an appointment either through dot com forward slash McMillan or through the Macmillan support line and talk to some of our pharmacists online about their concerns about the support that they can get through pharmacy teens and where to find other support. As they go through their experience with Cancer Rosie. Can you maybe I'll give some clarity as well. on if you all going to appointments is there a? Rule at the moment about being able to take somebody with you or not or or that differ from from center to center hospital to hospital. Yeah. Really important point and again something we're being fed back on a on a regular basis because in in the main it is still the hospitals are saying that actually they don't want people coming through the doors that. Don't absolutely need to be there. However, of course, all hospital buildings are set up slightly differently. So you know that the the way that you enter them and the route that you take might vary depending on the location, and so it may well be that in some circumstances, those rules are slightly laxer, but in the main, it is the case you know I had. A friend who visited a hospital recently again, she was really worried about this situation, and then actually when she got to the consultation that was the opportunity to say look, would you mind if I put my loved one who's in the cop on speakerphone so that they can be part of it or you know you can ask to record the consultation or actually then also say again, I talked about millions cancer specialists who may be there and involved in that conversation and it. May Well, be that you could say you know, would you be happy to speak to my relatives have managed to take everything in that? You said to me today I'm an ask one tip is also just to make sure that when you're in that appointment, just make sure if there are any of these annoying bureaucratic consent rules that you have actually completed those so that actually not one will be able to talk to the professionals just picking up on that as well. Rosy. In those those guidance that that guidance information that you're likely to get when an appointment is booked for you. Would explain there as well what you should or should not have been doing. With regard to shielding measures or isolation measures before going into an appointment absolutely, and the most important messages that whatever information is sent to you for your individual appointment that you make sure you follow that because nobody wants the fact that your care your treatment couldn't be delivered because you haven't followed the guidance and the guidance will vary depending on where you're going what you're going full I am so obviously going to be staying in hospital and having. You know having treatments interventions. It may will be have to have a Cova test seventy two hours before may well be that when you come home, you also have to self isolate but I can't am I can't say highly enough how important it is you follow the guidance that is given to you for your individual appointment. Balk when you get a cancer diagnosis, there's new language there is new. Structure There's new retains as new buildings, this new doctors and faces and then as now new guidances we've been talking that changes on a daily basis is a huge amount to take on board. And I think as well. There are people who've understandably very wary about being outside in the public going to the pharmacy to pick up whatever they're picking up being in hospitals. What's what's your advice to somebody who sees this and just goes? This is only bit scary for me. While I understand it scariest part of my job to keep up with the guidance on today basis I really struggle with it to be honest It's really difficult so for. You know I understand the anxiety understand the nervousness everybody has a bit of that as rosy said hospitals and GP practices of of change to make it a significantly safer an enough Agassi's we've made significant changes to a for it to be safer to access as well and it's OK touring up. Ahead of the appointment understand the changes that you'll see and how you can prepare a that. Fall that. Appointment as well where he had to help a make you. As comfortable as possible and an, every healthcare professional will aim to do that. So I ask questions get prepared. Talk and share how you're feeling an people will be able to support you and I know with my GPA now reprieve prescriptions and online ordering of medications, and there's some delivery systems as well. So they're all they're all structures around. Aren't they you know which don't which means you don't have to go into a busy high street and a busy stole to be able to keep up with your medication to keep up with the information that you're you're supposed to be receiving. Yes, and we'll help will help people in in whatever way we? Come. Every pharmacist will do that I'm sure on every pharmacy team. So whatever is right for you. If you nervous, we can deliver the prescriptions to you. We can have the prescriptions transferred automatically from the GP at to a pharmacy on the High Street unsorted from there. We can also talk over the phone or indeed online for any questions you have about your medication to. So there are solutions mouth. That's great to hear just had in terms from you know obviously, this also support from Millen I'm quite early on in the pandemic will also. Set up a befriending scheme and you can look at the website to to see this this office you know connecting with someone who tried to match people. So the telephone buddy scheme and you'll get contact over twelve week period my dad. As being self isolating since about nineteen ninety two. But. That's decision he just didn't like people mostly. So yes, everybody is different. You did mention no market. It was really important. Glad. You've bought their that up. And this is wrapped up with mental health as well. Is that it is I. Guess at this time when you get a very overwhelming piece of news and they're all restrictions are changing on a daily basis, it would be quite easy to sort of retreat Rosie, the the benefits of staying active and communicating. However you do that I'm sure can't be underestimated absolutely I mean. I. Think we all know don't we the benefits staying active for all of? US an actually you know when you've got a significant illness, actually the benefits of exercise both for your physical and your mental wellbeing, and so for people who've had a constant diagnosis waiting to go through treatment or going through treatment actually keeping up your physical emotional strength is just absolutely vital and they're all things you can do without. We always say you don't have to jump up and down in Lycra um they're all things that you can still. Do within your own house but you know actually this is this a part on our Cova. Toubon on minimum website the actually talks about after yourself at the moment there is a video on their actually sometimes people are really worried about what is it safe for me to do people actually think maybe they do need to sit on the city 'cause they're going to do themselves some harm. So number one if you worried check in with your healthcare team and you pharmacists Just to reiterate, there are simple things you can do within within the whole and it's it's really vital that you do that and keep up your strength. Questions About Cancer Beats Mcmillan a by your side for the moment to diagnosed through your treatment and beyond our beats. McMillan intimation pharmacists are on hand when specialists support from helping you make sense of your diagnosis to advice about living with cancer you combine them in your local boots pharmacy or online via video appointment visit beets dot com for wit slash McMillan for more information subject to pharmacist availability. Now. We've talked a lot about people getting in touch with Macmillan because they've been diagnosed with cancer over the phone or had to attend appointments on their own, and we've got a short clip from an amazing woman called. Ruth who was diagnosed with breast cancer during lockdown just weeks after her little girl was born. She's got some tips for others who are in the same position as her. I everyone. I'm raith and I was diagnosed with breast cancer in. April. This year during the coronavirus Lobstein. It's difficult getting diagnosis during this point, not being able to take somebody with me, but it was a few tips that I find through the way that really helps. Me fastly if you're going into an appointment on your rain I, find it really useful to see if you could have someone joining on a coal radio and put them on speakerphone in the room I found this radio east for for moral support. But also bringing somebody else in that process Wiki, and then they're also able to take questions, take notes and the Perez when you getting a lot of information in what cases. Secondly, if you got an infra surgery find out whether against go into the tastes room fast or if you're actually walking straight into the operating better mentally preparing. Yourself for the latter can need a little bit more of thought and visualization just to get into that right head space walking yourself into an operating. Thirdly, take a good book or TV, shows to watch when you're on your own waiting really does help pass the time and then the final got ready is a lot of hospitals have security on the doors at the moment to limit the number of people going through. So give yourself time to get yourself into security in through with an appointment latter or tax just to help running as you go into your appointments and hyper guys. Of course. So many people are going through difficult situations like ruth, many of been writing into the Macmillan Support Line Rosie Mog we've been working through some of the most common questions coming through to Matt Millen Support Line but lots of people concerned about delays to treatment or two tests. which might not diagnose them with cancer treatment cycles being shortened. So what are your? What are your words of wisdom to give people who are worrying about those things? Will you right seeing more and more people come into pharmacies with a concern in symptoms relieved that they haven't been able to access? The GP your consultant and and clearly we would encourage them to do an I've had personal experience of this actually over the lockdown period my father-in-law sadly has been diagnosed with colorectal cancer at during lockdown. Yeah and put for weeks and weeks and weeks It turns out he was ignoring these important symptoms and in talking to him, he was thinking that the GP's closed we've already talked about that they haven't been and and Rosie was saying that is more appointments available after people to talk to their GP. Thought that they were too busy or. In fact, he was not allowed to go outside because he's he's over eighty but. when when we got to the place where he could access some of the support that is available, I was really impressed with how it was handled. You know the GP in the referral he had to have some Cova test before going into some of the appointments to have scans. Results over the phone like we've been talking about and. Then, talk into consultant about the plan of action and a discussion of. Go for treatment now whether to delayed a bit later, you know an an unease east autism treatment for for it but. I'm I'm fascinated by how many people who perhaps would ignore those symptoms which are really vitally important to raise and getting support. The healthcare system is still working and. There's no real delay getting access to what is normally then infect as rosy said earlier it can be quite efficient and quick But this clearly lots of anxiety, but you need to take the conversations about all options Radian all action plans. and An iding courage people who perhaps I think should I delay treatment or worrying about? How you can. Manage the treatment that currently in you know you have to make a decision which is right for you. Reading important and discussing it with your doctor or consultant and ask the questions being prepared like Rosie said, idiot and get an all the information together. I think that they're often options that you won't think of others will, and I think that's really important. I'm really glad that you brought that up actually mark and we wish your father in law a speedy and healthy journey. So rosy mark mentioned their you know a very personal decision. So some some people who have been going through diagnosis and treatment have had to make tough decisions about whether to continue or whether to to hold back and wait until it is inverted commas safer for them to do so. How is mark talked briefly about how can you add to how people best way up what's best for them? In that situation we all learning all the time we're learning much more about covert was certainly learning a lot as number of academic people up and down the country to enrich clever staff, and I'm learning about the interaction of covert and cancer and what is. Safer, what treatments are an aunt and safe to continue their all plans now for restoration recovery and all of the four UK nations and so were influencing you know our very own chief executive lender has has had direct conversations with my hand coke I'm about this. So we influencing at the top level and we're working with the workforce you ought tirelessly I am endeavouring to. Get as many treatments back online. But again, coming back to what Mark said. It is about those individual conversations about what is best for you and those conversations you and your healthcare team no yourself best and that's where to have those conversations. As you know with a cancer diagnosis, there is the individual, but there are partners children. Why the Family In this time what what's out there for people who are trying to support their loved ones I know Rosie, you can probably help with this as well. It's tough being a care isn't it I'm I'm for the first thing I say you need to look after yourself to, and there's definitely support out there. If you haven't found it yet, you know McMillan support line is a balloon resource and the website is a brilliant resource to but family members loved ones. You need to be a strong and be able to share the online community groups in an L. McMillan website, which you can gain support and strength from and talking to people about it is really important in our pharmacies through our boots. Mcmillan Information Pharmacists are an teams. We often talk to the carers actually rather than the people who are directly affected by cancer. The CARE is perhaps haven't been in the conversation need to understand a little bit more about what at treatments are and what these medicines mean so that they can ask questions where he had to help but I'm sure. Other healthcare providers are there to help to but it's important to look after yourself rosy. It's a relevant question I think in a relevant subject for us to end on. So there have been so many changes to the guidance enrolls Where's the first place? Where should people turn if they're really still not sure what measures them themselves in their family need to take a particular part of the minimum website which is corona virus hub, and we try to respond to the content on there in response to the questions that come through the support line I'm won't and. Dating on a very regular basis. However, we do also make sure that we've got the Gulf Dot UK links on there because you know sometimes as we now announcements made on a Saturday evening and again, coming back to you and your individual care be guided by your healthcare teams and the information that is being sent to you about any specifics and that relate to you. and. So I I think those would be the things that I would suggest in in terms of making sure that you have got absolutely the right information that is personalized for you. Rosie Mark Thank you so unbelievably helpful I really you know there's so much in there to take away it's been a pleasure speaking to you both take care. Thank you. Thanks. Thanks summer.

Could his his his off society kind of do what he thought was best to to help out his community and I am the world as he sees it. Let's go to advertise. You're going down. A Pat welcome back facility. was just curious. Particularly in light of the Larry's decision, what is your a level of concern for your own personal safety through all this and also I'm just wondering. How will you've gotten to know? Quite Edwards Hilar- through all this, so I'm wondering if he was maybe those off season practices, you kind of put together. You can go into that as well. I mean to the first part I definitely there's GonNa. Be a little concern. I mean you. Can't you align to set? You have no concern, but at the same time as I've been throughout. The facility now the last night in a little bit today and seeing all the protocols all the safety things that Rick and all these guys have put forth. It's really kind of made me. Feel even better than I thought he did knowing how much that the NFL. NFL PA is really into making sure that we can be a safest we cost the can't be and so that's kind of put my mind at ease of knowing that I'm GonNa be in the best possible situation given the time to be a safe in his healthiest ospel, and it would Cli- Clyde has been throughout through some of those workouts and he. He has been out there. I've got to meet them. Talk a little bit and obviously stay in touch throughout the whole process in general, as guy knows, is a hard worker. You could tell by his demeanor, Intel, by the way he's out there in what he does. off the field on the field, so I'm excited to have him involved in the office. Now get out there more and more the bills from chemistry. Let's go to San McDowell when Sam. At Patrico, qualls, law man! You mentioned last season that you thought about the way that the twenty eighteen ended throughout the off-season. Wonder what the feeling is coming into this year Sam aside from all club would stop just as football wise list of feeling from end of this camp. Yeah I mean not the owners. I'm ready to get back after it I, mean I think that's the. That's the biggest thing once you hit this first day and it's all it's all star Dover again and it's a it's a different off-season. Obviously started with the super it'd be on a high level Dila was a pandemic in other movements that have kind of went throughout our nation. You've got to keep your head on. Straight diligent in the best way possible for you and the community around you and so now I'm glad to be back into facility back with the guys that are that are my teammates guys that we built this coast together announced the restart the process doing over again and we understand somebody harden. Get every day to day process regard their the mindset of the best team that we see every single day. Let's go to Pete Sweeney Update. A Patrick, thanks for taking some time with us a couple of your teammates this week Chris Jones and tyree in particular they made these national waves for not only wanting to repeat as champions, but have five and six and seven super bowls as the leader of the team. Do you like this type of talk to you? Encourage it or is it something where you say okay, let's. Let's just focus on this day today, and maybe getting this one one I hear I. Mean it's a little bit of both I. Mean You love the guys have? The goals may want to be in Kansas City for a long time that they wanNA. They WanNa win championships, and they don't want to be average. They want to be great every single year, but I think other. Other than that you know these guys in how they're talking to other than just the quotes that are talking about the day to day process. They're talking about how hard it is to be on the topic to get to the Super Bowl. If you look at our our season this last season we had a lot of adversity, a lot of sit throughout the season and in. In the playoffs and so I think I. Think the guys have that mindset that they have those long term goals. They know that they're not to go out there every single day. Prove that there to go out there with the mindset to be to be great every single day, and if they go through that process every single day, they'll never have any regrets their career. Petra Answerin Pat I wonder. How you feel going in all the time, you guys lost actually on the off field now that you're there. Ilab, your speculating that you guys will have an advantage because everybody is back, but how far behind you feel now taking a step on the field since you guys haven't had any. Yeah I mean personally I don't feel that much behind it all. Thought, the virtual meetings were went will trade attendance. We had guys. was there guy was paying attention? Everybody was aimed into the meaning country desk. People questions every five minutes. You'd better be into and so having that ended as well as any ways to work at home. Obviously, you haven't had that time on the field. You're used to think what the NFL PA NFL come into this acclimation period. That's GONNA. Get guys ready to go. You guys prepared their body so that we can cut cut those injury rates down. From, not having not as you WANNA make sure that everybody's ready to go and I feel like. Guys have been the. Guys are ready to be back on the field around. Do whatever it takes to make sure their bodies. Already ready for whatever that first Games. Going to be kissel going to, be. Curious your thoughts in other news is come at Laurente. Rene Tardy deciding to basically skip this season to stay up in Canada and help. Your thoughts in spoke with any of your teammates about that as well. Yeah me at prayer by the Oslo Turbine respects the decision. One hundred percent I mean Larry. The Guy who who loves bobby also loves his is other Pasadena doctors is extremely important especially at this time that we're at in this world, and so for him I know he's it's difficult for him. He wants to be out here with us you to be a part. Part of US he wants to be part of the guys but at the same time he wants to make raced doing something to make the world a better place. Not believe that he is doing that. He's seen it firsthand and he understands that he needs to be in that place now. We're GONNA. Respect it and give them as much support as we can. To Michelle Steele Hey Patrick. Thanks so much for the time today. I just from a conditioning perspective. if the season started tomorrow, feel like you could play, and is there an area that you've identified an area of your game where you'd like to improve? Albums luggage. Non, Disney tomorrow, the season started tomorrow, but I mean I. think that comes with the it gets. Get full team led eleven. Rex for you're ready to go against NFL, caliber players so I feel like conditioning. I'm in I'm in great shape in the best shape I've ever came into camp, Ashley and so often I- conditioning, wise and health was a great spot announced about getting those reps ns things are improving each me at every single year. It's fundamental spot going out there. Many sure I can make the place within the party just as place from outside of the pocket in the mental game. More reds more rested idea I'll be. I'll get better with mental side of the game. and I'm GonNa make shoplifting south. The best quarterback team could be every single day it. Looks like we have three hands up left, so we'll do our final. Three will go Danny, Herald then Darren go ahead Danny. Thank you so much for doing this first off with all these changing protocols in everything. Weird, it's going be what's it been like just walking back into the building today? Who Have you spoken with ones? That protocol kind of been like then also, how much of a difference is it going to make not having those preseason games and being able to have that acclimation period before you go into the regular season. Yeah I. Think I mean first off with all the protocols have been a good job of getting all the players on the calls to make sure that we were prepared to be in the building, and prepare for everything was going to Intel with that and so being here today. You just see that the NFL PA are really taking this thing seriously. That are really taken. The distance seem wearing a mask everything like that seriously so that we're not hurting each other or hurt anyone else out in the world with being here together and trying to build something and then the note preseason games on August, I. Don't know exactly how that s going to be a club. Never done it before going back to college. I think you know that there has been talk to those first game. It serious you gotTA. Make sure you go. Go out there and try to win football games so I'm try to lean on that as well as I feel like you have his acclimation period will help guys build up and make sure their bodies were prepared. Thought that was what was most important. Other than the preseason games are are some that helped a lot of guys out the health of the players in a hemicycle major period. Get everybody ready to go so that when we do build a radio. SKRELA HERALD GO? Patrick. Good morning doing well or early afternoon or whatever it is, but hey, lot NBA players have recently come out.

I mean they're doing a great job of the example, especially being one of the first organization go back. It'd be a part of of planned this. They love, but also part of staying with the movement and not lead. Their the left the smart effect that their mind in their motivations of of support, the moment but with the voter registration stuff. We've actually had a lot of talk with mark. Mark Donovan.

And the Executive Committee on on how the outlook of this agreement with the NFL was Yeah I. Knew that resveratrol I think is actually been able to kind of stay in college. Who teach me tell me more even as as someone. That was a a leader of the team last year. He was a great guy and it's Kinda. Helped me and gave me advice and stuff like that, but I was on. All the PA calls listened I. I gave my questions out because we there was a ton of since the calls were long, but they were worded I. Mean we're in a a time? We want to make sure we really really cross T.'s dot the. The I's and had everything the right way in the way we wanted to had thought the executive committee gut did a great job of getting a first off protection for the guys that that went that her high risk decks with the guys that voluntarily opt out and protection for the guys that are on the field, dominated a good job protocols that are in place and done to economics of power. GonNa go about this season, and so I thought that they really pushed up things that gave us the comfortability to to approve the proposal that was sent to us yesterday. Ave really laid it out for every single person. Everybody understood before we made the boat. We appreciate you taking the time today. Hopefully, we get to see soon. Thank you.

In here for really the first time that we've had a chance to see him face to face and. We. Appreciate that appreciate all the hard work that everybody done. Set up this campaign. Make it possible as safe at the same time so Mitch and Rick. Rick just got done talking hairston crew and Rocco. With facilities they've just gone above and beyond. Again Mark Donovan as overseeing that made sure the things are working efficiently there. And it was all grace by by Clark Hunt. So those those become very important of appreciate the League the Union and them working out. An agreement where we're football, go on in a safe manner and and and we can look forward. To a season And then listen air, we sit. We sit with the young players. Now have an opportunity to work with them. Excuse me work with them. we start off with. A few days here were. Were there though lifting? Conditioning and then. Will ramp up into. Some other things in gradually get ourselves in the pats in will cooperate the fats once again. We'll give you all the detail to that. down the road here when it's all categorized and and. Mastered here by the coaches, it myself so Other than that listen, it's. What, what again? What a great opportunity! It's is a very unique time we. We think we're going to put the players in a position where. They're they're safe. It's it's a responsibility though at the same time, so it's a responsibility. For the coaches for the players anybody dealing with the players to to take responsibility. Follow the those. The format that set for us to fight. This is the virus. Is Operatives played football so? I will continue to. With the players on that the players again y will work together on that. There's GonNa be a give. There's got to be a little. Give and take situation going on here. Responsibility I guess would be the term. We all leave the billions, coaches and players that we handle ourselves properly. and. Keep ourselves safe again as we possibly can and and that be w important for the season again to move forward. But again. Is a neat setup I. was you guys at the opportunity of seeing I'm sure you've seen by now, but the setup is is tremendous. We're going to work in the stadium and down in our facility here, majority of meetings and and Then food will take place stadium dressing room at the stadium and. LAB PRACTICES DOWN here will lift down here also. I without tigers. Andy. How you doing today new great, thank you good. Hey, a couple of things. I wanted to ask you first about your reaction to Larry's decision to opt out this season. And also was wondering what you're not. The guys are back in the building every day now and you're cranking this thing up. What's your? Level of concern for your own personal safety is. You know so listen. Larry I'm a huge Larry. ONATE fans so. I I also was raised by a doctor, so I understand dedication that it takes to be a doctor. We're all blessed to have doctors in our lives. The they're they're givers takers. They're givers and their healers, so they want the best for you, and so Larry has that quality and you're seeing it to the. To the utmost here I. Just think it's tremendous. Dedication days profession, what is future's going GonNa to be and in May late to the people that he gets to help and so My heart goes out to Greek. Talk with him. Great visit with them. His players support him. the veteran players support him in the coach's support of men that we know we understand when football's over this is going to be one of the greatest doctors, so it's We appreciate that the great thing about doctors are the ones that I've been. In touch with over my my life here like I said I raised by one and. I've got three of my closest friends are are doctor so They're givers mandate. They and they're not the taker, so they're very humble. That WanNa, help you, and he'll you and and they're not out looking for like Larry. They're not out looking for the PAT on the back that they're doing this or that. They're not looking for attention I. Mean Larry is buried in. He's not looking to do interviews and all of this be buried in trying to get the work done that he needs. To to heal people and and man I mean what a dedication that is and a love. That is I. I'm so happy problem. As far as the setup here and. feeling like we're in a safe environment I think. Great ends to do this. were as safe as you can be here like I said on this. Oh! Dedicate the dedication. And and stain. Disciplined when you leave, this facility will be important when you're. Here is a safe environment, and so you've got to continue that once you leave here and so that that ends up being imported and we have a plan for that, too. So that will talk to the players about him and. You know so I feel good about it myself I feel good about it. That's to hurt Goin' Herbie. Coach you. Looking good is your own pleasure to see. Yes, thank you, herb I circle. Coach in hindsight in light of Elliott decision. How big is the selection of Lucas Dang? Now now that you look at that? And how much do you anticipate him? Starting off Cam, getting reps at right, guard. Sure so let's get a mid Air I I mean. Let's get practicing Will game adjusted and see how he does? remers another one that we picked up with was a good football player, and we've got good players here right now, so we're be. We'll be okay and. At the offensive line, and obviously the add him into the mix. Um works cited as SAM wheat. We get a little chance. Is, to visit William so our excited for that, but yeah, I think we're in good shape while all the way around Will we love to add Larry Absolutely, but we understand is caught. Absolutely understand that to. GonNa Pete. Sweeney beat coach. Thanks for taking time with us this morning. I was curious. Your lauded as the most creative playcallers, if not the most creative play caller, and the the NFL with the virtual off season this ramp up period. No preseason games I. I just was curious. How much you think that is going to be impacted a as what you're able to yearly was for his almost having a new offense seemingly every season. P We try not to let that slows down in that area. A number save August so we have been able to go on the field but. We're going to and we're in the way that new The way that the league and the unionist put this together. WE'RE GONNA end up with enough added practices where you can go full speed, and then are the shell in and. Padded shirt practices where we should be fine for tiny purpose. Right as a throwing league right now so. It is important as a running game is at timing again. I N throw game becomes important because it takes hours or so. We have an opportunity to do that with the with the new rules that have been put out for us. It's going to vie goodbye. Andy just one more thing about the RAW Obviously, it's a momentous decision but I, but I actually wonder if you were even surprised by it. In just a side point also you see I know you were alignment. We all know were alignment, but do you see a little bit of the linemen protector ethos in in kind of how what he's done along those lines? Yeah you take me right in the great philosophy there i. I I do. I know Larry though I'm not been with a mirror now since since he came into the national football league. so I I get it. I mean. I just think it's a what a tribute. To him and to the profession. If I didn't know how doctors are wired well, but I know I've got it I know exactly how they're wired in the love and dedication that they have a to that to protecting. And Healing and so their their natural givers, and and and healers, and so This did no, it didn't surprise me. No, it did not to the desert question like I said I had a great visit with them A. Unique situation. GOING TO SURRENDER PETRO, goodson. Coach. Rick was talking about that was about nine weeks that in putting everything together to Kinda. Create the the environment. You guys have got theory also detailed how you were. Kind of the League coach on how this was all going to be put together. Can you kind of explain how you guys are working for nine weeks yet? The agreement just came together a couple of days ago. Like how you can get everything done. Did you have to go at the end and switch things around? Because things, the NFL PA ended up wanting how how is that out of those timelines? So there massage. assange going on between. The the League and The Union they asked me to. Step in as a coach kind of. A neutral figure? To share. Some of experience of the experiences I've been there through the lockout. I think this completely different situation than the lockout as you recall, the lockout was the the organizations versatile player where coaches were allowed to talk to players and so. Therefore we weren't able to check on the players, the other working out or do virtual work any of these things that we've been given when really the factor out there that you're working against right now is the virus, so we have all these virtual as we could see, who's working out who's not talk, communicate with the player. And in some cases, do virtual workouts with player so It's a different communication. Process took place. And and I think that will help the players coming in be in better shape than maybe what took place again was a head. Coach is what took play is during during the lockout time so. That's I think it's a different starting point I. Think the setup though is tremendous on how we're giving the players opportunity ramp up and get themselves ready to go and you know. My hat goes off to the league. I said was just a narrator inherent not between the League and the Union and I appreciate both let me and. The meeting there and I think it all worked out. All right guys. We got time for a couple more here. WE'RE GONNA go to raise and then close it out with Sam McDowell goods risk. Coach, thanks for doing this whole thing will with you. Thanks Hey. One thing that always interests me is when you win a title, you certainly go from being the hundreds of the hunted I could see Patrick is already pretty motivated hung by the way, but just from your point of view. What is the message to make sure the focus stays on winning because you're gonNA, get every teams best shot every single week. How do you keep God's focus on that mental challenge of knowing? You're going to play better against you because they want to show off. Absolutely we, you chairs that part. You've worked very hard to put yourself into that position. And so I understand that, but you also understand you've got to go through the process. And IF I. If you're not willing to do that and been good, things aren't going to happen. The guys know that so and then you. You gotta be blessed with good leaders, and I think we have good leaders on this football team and I I mentioned this to the rookies I said. Take your notes. make sure that your study makes me come prepared to meetings and a practice and I said. One reason is when you see the veterans do that's how they roll, so you better, you better come in ready to go and if you don't. You'RE GONNA fall by the wayside and Bam won't change I. Don't believe with the football team, but listen. It's still bay by day. That's how you have to go about it. It's not what you did. In the Super Bowl here. It's what you do. Go on four. And so, that's Will work for that message there. Okay Sam. Out. Andy. Clear that you're confident what you guys have set up at the facility. And you touch on a couple times, but obviously you're going to have a Lotta guys go their separate ways once they leave. The facilities is a fair to say that once you start the season. That responsibility is gonNA. Be The most important thing to finishing the season absence. What what instructions are giving players? And how confident are you that? Three guys in a season or or sixty guys season are in abide by those. Yeah so again I take it day by day. I I think we're all doing that with this virus. We've learned that through the pandemic things, change and so We're GONNA stick by what the experts tell us. And you know the I mentioned this before to you guys, but the simple parts of that we can do is where mass when the we can. Wash our hands. After contact with people are so then Make sure we use social distancing again when we can't so those are portent things that are based fundamentals with this. We're going to do it, and then they've got the set up here Whether it's plexiglass between lockers. Whatever all the different things that they set up here. was separation within the meat in rooms. And so on so. We're going to try to buy it by that. We're going to try to teach the best way we possibly can. And then we're going to trust the players and the coaches. I'm one of those right I'm included in this that we write things when we leave here and that's A. Really that's all you can do than. Than you go play, you focus in applying. Appreciate the time today. Thank you, okay, thank you appreciate. A Clyde. Curious about the Patrick had mentioned that you've been involved in some of the private workouts with the guys and just curious to know. How did that go for you? And once you do get into? You know these practice sessions next couple of weeks one. Are you expecting to learn about yourself? And what? What are you wanting to learn about the NFL? So, really most importantly I. think that we just wanted to get down. Is simply you know work on little things of timing? And that was that was the biggest thing and just get comfortable with you know. Even Having your poll passes and everything else was floors just time just getting comfortable with standing next to paint and everything else. Was Great. But we were pretty much working on. Other than that coming in and. Trying to buy than cross my ts. And do the right thing as a soloist to stay to stay on the right right Pan would have I missed won't do it. It's Pete Sweeney at. Clyde I. was curious. As is, process has gone on you really unique experience with the rookie, not really being able to get in person. How much are you looking forward to this? And then when it comes to Andy Reid in the breath of all, he asks running back to do. Are you handling taking in the playbook as compared to Lsu? Ultimately. I was I'm just. Happy to be here of this is my. This is my happy place I've been doing this. I'm only doing. It hurts. The twenty one years. Football says I was five. So this is what I do. and this is I'm I can't wait everything. The setup everything about everything here is just perfect for me and I can't wait. A dog playbook it was you know as far as not having to to school and everything goes to play book I. I feel like it's easy. I I've had offers a coordinators. Multiple offices. I had to learn your out so mountainous. This is nothing just learning to office in a justice in players around. Aaron the LAD. Go ahead Aaron. Glad I appreciate the time I'm curious what it will look like off the field with you kind of rules and regulations we're seeing now is that there could be fines possibly for going out and excusing protocols. Would it be difficult for you to spend you know three or four months protocol at home when you got all this newfound. Infosys. Ono Not at all I. Mean You can literally accident? A A college probably went out. Five Times account one hand on many times. I went out so I'm not a I'm not a party guy out a stay at home, a ultimately mom uses about myself. I'm doing anything probably It's GonNa. Adam Tyson Adam. Adam you willis. Sorry Eclie just wanted to talk to you about your your level of. Your level of concern for your personal safety through this time what? Can you explain a little bit where you are with all that? Right now I'm. I'm absolutely audible took over. Over. Ten, Kobe, nineteen of all came back negative. The way everything is displayed here and the way everything is set up here. I'm I feel absolutely safe of with my mom, being a being a nursing and pretty much running our veterans song back at home, and dealing with Covy, nineteen and everything else I pretty Iran, everything by her however will settle in i. mean if she's absolutely comfortable with it being a I responded and someone who's on a front line door during this pandemic. I can be comfortable with it so. I'm I'm completely off is ready to get to work, but. Walls go ahead Steve. Hey what's going on Kyw. Over the past few months, we've learned a little bit more about ourselves I retired early. Say that he's never worked out so hard. His life I'm just wondering what you've learned about yourself over the past few months and his tons of certainty. been able to to press pause button is slow everything down for somebody that was. A went on US fifteen run in the national championship immediately house right back training. To combine draft and everything, and then everything was just a whirlwind, so ban it was just pause stop and being able to focus on. One mental health, and just you know to my body, just get everything straightened and into also they do what I love. Guys looks like. If we got four hands up left, we'll go right down the line. Let's go. herald goals. Help You well. My question to you, is you kind of alluded to it a little bit earlier, but without the preseason games. What's your level of concern? You can kind of get in sync with this offense with as much moving parts and Andy. Reid has that you can get it done? In the time that you have that mission period. Off the field two regular-season to be ready to go. I said absolutely coughed of Obama to meet. We did install before everybody had the online stars, and I was able to and do things from our playbook beforehand so coming in ultimately my thing is to. You know I have I. Have a lot of guys Guys who've been here that I can actually learn from their brain so. I have their disposal in and I'm just GONNA be a team player. Hey. Clad the question that I have for you is is simple. Your Mama's in the is in the industry to health industry. Mom is well. What message would you give to to fans? You know those who let's just say. That's on the other side that that doesn't take this virus serious. You know now, because obviously people are going back and forth by wearing a mask in and you know we know about the agreement a lot. A lot of teams can't have fans in the stands. What would what would your message be to fans out there? Who are against warring wearing a mask? For me. is on my mom. She was She actually had Kobe and then my little sister she took. She has more school district so me way or not me wearing a mask and keeping everything just in into intone an and keeping everybody safe around I mean she She was born without a lot of different difficult, a real difficult situation. ultimately gets it. Is it pretty much be fatal? So for me? It's a personal. You know where this is something that you when you go outside and interact with people. And stand six feet apart is is is the making software mass? They sixty four in ultimatum as we should be able to to knock, disturb down. I mean everybody wants to be in. The stands. Aren't going on a Sunday Monday Thursday, so let's just make it happen. Just wear masks Think BJ KISS A lot of follow up questions on related jump glad. Club, we spoke a about a month ago about your sister is WanNa follow up on that 'cause you're getting ready to start your NFL career. What kind of inspiration she's been for you? And some of the stories that you shared with me, regarding you know when she was younger, you kind of looking out for in having to. To. Play A. EMERGENC- doctor at different times. Can you speak to that and what kind of motivation she's been for you. The biggest thing is She hasn't even been able to pretty much get there to even see you know just whatever's going on because I? mean the the nervousness of. Of her coming out here, and possibly contracting a Kobe, just because you know, you have people around it. Can't simply mayors go? Do the simple things She, she hasn't anything yet so ultimately. This is is hitting home so. Just rubs ready to get all these road. Island let's go to our final one Saran. You're. Allowed times we'll. We'll hear maybe year or two down the road. Running backs have come through, and they don't play, and then they start playing and coaches. Don't really say anything about why they're not playing. After the fact, say well. He really kind struggled with the past protections. Are you talking about the playbook not to have school football? Be Your focus that it's been. Been Pretty easy, but they do they come at you right now, I'm curious what they tell you going into a. we hear that after the fact now that you're going into it. How much do they stress the fact that you got to protect the quarterback that the locking part of the equations as much as what you do with the ball on your hands? I've never I've never looked down. Own Path protection as has learned half of my job. Ms instilled in me since since I was younger and. Ultimately. This is something that I knew that I would that I would have to do an NFL something. I'm going NFL. There's something about practicing trained for every day day in day out in college. So smudge up I'M GONNA. Execute and GonNa do do need to do is force.

Lucas, it ed been a little while since we spoke with. You know one of the things that they bred. Visha told us that had you know caught? Our attention was that you played predominantly tackle at college all tackle and that he thought you could work guard just curious if you've had a chance to kind of look at both those positions and what you've been studying and what you like about potentially having diversity to slide in if that's what's needed. Get drafted, and we had a conversation at combat about myths, touchable mcgarvy symbol of God. China get comfortable. I can be versatile as possible. It's GonNa. Pete swing the. Thank you for taking some time with us this morning. Right after you were drafted. You joined us and you just made a point to say that your health was ready to go i. just was curious as this off.

How much easier is it for you? From a technique point of view of the goal from right, tackle the right more. US A our both left outright com ca snow are starting to be ready to play a new online, but. I. Think it'll just help avenue, Cam combat and stuff that I've been doing tackle had guard. It's GONNA Viagra gory and go ahead by. A thanks, Brad Hey Lucas I'm just curious regarding. What you heard about Ron decision and how that struck you. In of a big picture since.

Hey look. My, question for you is is I. Guess kind of to fraud. Obviously, this is the first time in NFL history that they've that. They're going to have that. They're not going to have a pre season as a rookie. Coming in you know what challenges are you? Do you feel that you're GONNA? Face another work face without having any real live game action practice started season, and do you think that's going to be a help or hinder someone in your position? It depends on. How high goes through personally but A. Every rep is going to be more important than previously because you'll have those preseason games to gone, show it show your stuff breakfast. You can make any mental errors. Any mistakes 'cause there's gonNA McConnell lot more. It's GonNa Manning Mullen GonNa.

They gave me support with the infectious. Response Team and I'm grateful that only Kansas City and grateful that I work with that leadership I've got to give a shout out to my staff, so Tiffany Morton craft, Julie Fryer David Glover. They have not had a vacation. They did not leave Kansas. City did not leave this building because they were attached to me and it was the only way we could get through. The cogan policies as their support. Now we had a few guys in this summer that or the spring winter spring summer doing rehab and we did that in the morning and that we were Kobe policy the rest of the afternoon. There's no way there's no way I could have done this without them and once again. Let me go back to that championship team. Mentality is championship organization, and when it comes to Kobe in. That's how we acted and. Once again I'm super super grateful for that. As far as the protocol goes, I think everybody's focused on testing. And the NFL's hired out by a reference labs to do. The testing in were well underway. Testing is one part of what is going to keep us safe so there. There's a bunch of other things other than testing now. Really really important, but I think the you guys the media. It's not your fault. That's the focus because that's what the NBA everything was testing testing testing, but you gotTa know that so wearing this little device on whether you could see. That's contact tracer so everybody. WHO's testing? And they come into. The building has to wear that contact tracer that contact trees let you know. With who you're around and then if Tomorrow got a positive test. They would know that I spent five minutes with Ted Cruz or four minutes within six feet of Brad G. They would go back and trace that, and then we would put our protocol in place based off of the tracing, so tracing a it's a huge deal connects on us the company that's doing the tracing It's a lot of manpower, but everybody's accepted it. In fact, I'd have veteran player today. Saying what am I getting tracers? So they understand they understand that it's testing tracing than the other stuff was social distancing and sanitizing. I can't thank. The facilities people at Arrowhead and here to practice facility enough Rachael Selah and Brandon Hamilton. They've gone out of their way to make it right for us. They've worked through the night. Apple ties to make sure that we were. We had everything. We've taken the stadium and converted over four. Training camp. We're using the concourses for meeting rooms that are very socially distant. We've changed our cafeteria. Our cafeteria policies where we have social distancing in and tables that are spread out with only two or three chairs at a table. Everything's to go no buffets. We had to change. All that and Aramark was was a big help in that Escorted sanitizing golf's. Group here. The practice facility right now and going onto the stadium with With. A training camp. They look like they work at Disney because they're behind you all the time wiping. Door handles and wiping touch points, and you know we. We have these Mr Guns. Their Electric electrostatic sprayers that sprayed chemicals every time. The team leaves the locker room. They clean it every time. They leave the weight room. They clean it. Were you know This building is clean. The stadium is clean and my hat goes off to that group of of workers that are working tirelessly to make sure that we're safe. You're going to see some changes when you come to practice or when you view practice because hydration more water in a guys mouth. It's now all individual bottles. There's no more towel sharing You're going to see some changes at practice with. How we go about it, you'll see equipment. GUYS WIPING DOWN PADS IN BETWEEN REPS. And all players will wear the tracing device at practice as well so this is a very serious very big undertaking, but we feel good about it Are, player so far have bought in our coaches body and the staff has been with me the whole way, so the staff that's been here. They bought in and they're anxious to know. One of the big pieces to the whole thing is education, so we educated the players that are been in. We've educated the staff on three occasions three separate power points. We will educate the veterans when they get here and the really neat thing that we're doing. We're educating the families of all players and staff that are going to be in these tears, and we want them to know that we're doing everything possible to make their loved one safe and. I came here with Andy Reid for a reason because Andy Reid cares about his players I've been Andy. Reid loves football and he loves the. Pageantry of it. He loves game planning and all that, but he loves his players more, and you can see it when those. Talk about him, and because I head up our health and safety and medical group. India's instilled that Amita love these guys and love them like family. And that's how we approached this. This pandemic and I've been on the phone with on trying to assure them getting their feedback with their words are and. It's been an interesting time for me. I will I'll leave you with this, and then I'll take a few questions so. Pandemics aren't fun. Crisis aren't fond of that. There is a silver lining in this one for me working for the Kansas City. Chiefs. Anat is that I've learned so much about the people in this Organization while doing this unbelievable task something that I had no idea I was going to have to take God, but you find out about trust. You find out about loyalty, and you find out about reliability, and if you take those three words at trust, loading reliability, and you go back to the twenty nine thousand nine season. That got us through. And that also will get us through this pandemic so with that I'll take questions. A Herbie I go at Herbie. A recovery. A two part question here. Phenomenal what you've been able to put together their. Degree that even the best laid plans of mice and men can often go awry. AM positive tests could happen here in the absence of a Bac seen, what is the acceptable agreed upon percentage rate for positive test or tamp, and then secondly? What are the protocols on the handling positive test during the regular season especially on Fridays. Yeah so answer some so good some of lead up to the NFL to answer just because I feel, it's their answer. First of all to slow education, the fastest act seen in history and world history is four years, and that was for the mumps. We are right now at about five months. So the you know, everybody asks that question. How do you play football back seen, you know there's viruses out there like HIV. That never got a vaccine. The common cold doesn't have a vaccine. Herpes doesn't have vaccine right, so we have viruses that don't have vaccines. There's no telling that we'RE GONNA! Get a vaccine for this, so we can't think like that. We've got to go to the next step. If we get the vaccine great, we've got to go to the next step of testing. Every team's GONNA positive tests. We know that society I mean we're. We're testing positive at seventy thousand a day right now. We know that what we hope is we limit our tests are luminaries are positive tests in when we get a positive test, we act. Accordingly with the CDC to get those people isolated, get him healthy and get them safely back to work, and there's a whole lot of protocol that would take me an hour to talk to you about because it's a lot of its own, not an individual basis, but an individual case, so it doesn't matter whether it's Patrick, or whether it's me. We've got a follow the guidelines that are. Positive test symptoms days antibodies all that kind of stuff to determine when it saved for that person and come back to work and I think the NFL released that eventually. I'm just I don't think. I've been cleared to release the actual days. Certainly, all of Boston do healthcare for the NFL and the coaches and general managers. We've asked a question about Friday's before games right now. We don't have games, so that's a good thing, but they're putting some protocols together as we get closer to game, time and. Listen. It's not going to be normal. This isn't going to feel normal for anybody in this building. Any of you guys because you know what it's not normal, so we've got to adjust and. I go back to the twenty nine thousand nine season. No team adjusted as well as the Kansas City Chase. We're going just and we're. GonNa. Make it happen, and we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. GET POSITIVES AND WE'RE GONNA. Take care of those guys when it's safe to come back to work, they will. We're going to get positive tests within the staff. We're GONNA take care of them and their families and get them back to work when it's safe. Were were chasing unknown right now, which is okay, because there's a lot known, but there's a little of a it's I wouldn't say. We're chasing something invisible. There's a lot known about. It's not unknown. We're chasing something invisible my wife the other night. How are you doing this? And I said Hey. We're Jersey memorable. When we had water in the basement, she said Yeah. You didn't know where it was coming from and I said exactly. You don't know this I, mean you? You've gotta take universal precautions in and and do your thing. But you just don't know who has it, so masks masks mass. SANITIZING GLOVES PP. All right guys, we've got time for a couple more, so we're going to Adam Tyson and then we'll let be J. closer sound, go and Adam. A Rick. Hey a couple of things first of all now the guys are coming back in the building. How would you describe their added whether it's apprehensive or wary or just generally speaking? How would you describe that and also? I know you've seen a million things just about everything since you've been an APP a trainer in the NFL, but you haven't seen anything like this. What's what's it been like for you to get your arms around this? In that respect yet to to really good questions, Adam and is the first with our players are so respectful of our staff, and that's led by Andy. You know he's kind of created this culture in the building. and. They build it. I worry about and I reached out to many off season to find out how they felt about. Certain things so that we can put protocols in place and and one of the to to the things that. Just in side stuff that came across my desk. When I asked the players, they were worried about their families. and. They said the people that they Know that had cove itself guilty. So automatically we instilled a an education program for the families, and there's GonNa be a testing available for the families that was I took that to the NFL, and so did others, and then with Sean tyrants on our staff. That's why he was on. On our infectious response team, because so many people get covert feel guilty and Um. The players are worried about the what if I get somebody else sick? What if I get the coaches sick? What if I can't play? So we have bad as part of our protocol. Now since they come to the building I'd say, the response is pretty pretty positive. They're like Whoa, this is this is pretty impressive with facilities done. They see the cleaning people they They see the testing. They see what we're going through to make sure they're right. They're wearing their tracers around, and they get that so the rookies and ED. Of course I got. Pat Met and. And Chad here you know so. They're veteran guys and then. I've had four guys rehabbing that. They've been through it too, and they're like man. This is way better than I thought and I gotTa Tell You I. Keep Bragging about the organization. I had fears about this how we would pull this off in how we go forward with it. It's been I will say it's Slough because this isn't Laurel Right? It's not smooth, but we haven't had the issues that I thought we would have because the staff has embraced it and people were all taking responsibility one of things that patch and I talked about doing process and I talked to paddock bit about it. He was like root some of this. You can't handle. This has to be on the. The players and I said. Are you an you and the Badger gotta take care of that. And I talked about they said we got. You will make sure that we WANNA. We WanNA really run back. We want to be in Tampa and you. Only way we can do is everybody's healthy, so they got to take care of themselves in the building, so there's a little bit of peer pressure there Your other question. How did I I take this on? A much sure. Overload period of time all of a sudden, so this is two weeks and weeks and weeks, and I kept telling Ted Brad and my step I. Don't know whether we're ever going to play football. And all the sudden boom were here, and it's in place de costly change and. I've embraced it because I see the silver lining it and I see the good in people see how much they care about each other, and that's very fulfilling to me, It it's something not every NFL team organization has, and so that's made it easier for me. It's been it's been a a really tough ride, but it's been a good ride and I'm proud of the people that have worked on my team to get it to this point and I think we're anxious to see where we know. Certainly we don't want to get anybody sick, but we still WANNA play football. They all love the play football. You guys love football and that's where we're at. Our IBJ Glenn closes out. I Rick David Coley told me years ago. That one of the things he loved about working for coach is that he can tell you on any given day any particular day of the year exactly what he'd be doing because of how much of a creature of habit coach was now, we instilled that in all of his assistance. How's it been like for? For you as long as you've known coach working through this environment where he doesn't have a playbook to kind of get through what this looks like, and he's relationship you guys have and how that's helped. You guys and how you've helped him. kind of set stage for. How can you know structure this trying to get the team ready to play September tenth? Yeah bj In your ears here you you've really. Captured the lotion of what coaches about what about with coach so i? Think told some people on the call before there's two. There's two men in the world and I'd take a bullet for once. My Dad once Andy Reid. He's a father figure to me and he's been awesome in this process, but he's also been a big red-headed bear ties because of the unknown, and he likes to lay things out, and he has a scheduled ready in May and we're in July, in the schedule's not. It's just being finalized today because we just got the scheduled protocols I felt like this was a chance to get back to Andy. Reid is giving me so much and taught me how to be a a a good athletic trainer, and I often feel like he and I are very close, but I walked in his office on Monday mornings with problems. And this is one of the rare times of my career that I could actually give them solutions, and so he was struggling with. The unknown from the League and I was getting information earlier because it was all medical before involved the coaches. General managers, but then they started bringing Andy and so he knew what the questions were going to be going into his meetings, and he would call me and we had some late night converse well, they relate for me. He was on the West Coast so it relate to me, but we will go through. You know Phantom schedules like and when it was all said and done, it came back and I said all right now that we're done doing that, it's moving forward. How many schedules yeah, but he showed me on his IPAD. He had like twenty different schedules. Because every time they would throw us a when a ball, but it was a change in a protocol. He changed his schedule and. He's got a greedy mastered I. Mean It's amazing because last night i. get the same print out that I've gotten every year. For Capri was just in July, instead of May, and then we had to put it tweak on this morning, but he's. He's a master at organization that I felt like this was the first time where I could give back to say okay. Coach what the rule is going to be! How are we gonNa do this and he would say a got. In a call me twenty minutes to go. What do you think about this? So this is a I'm telling you this was fun three, but it was different for me and my ability to assist coach in the. Enduring, the protocols was very very fulfilling to me. The fact that he was the main coach on all these calls also gave me a little thrill, because I was giving them information that we work stuff out before you get on the call and. He's he's. He's beautiful. Mind I mean he's. He really has a focus on what to do. The right thing to do of send us. Guys before is is dead. Was An artist is Mama's a doctor? He's got art and science like nobody ever seen. And I've been on calls religiously with science people, and then you get to andy who throws the art into it? It all makes sense and I've gotten off. Calls with the medical people said I don't know how we're GONNA do this. This and I'd call coach and he'd say okay. We're GONNA do this way. That's the art of the science that Andy Reid so good at that. We never see because we re basically joy Sundays. Whereas art is unbelievable. You know so I know a lot of people out, but it. It took this whole village to get today. It's GonNa take the whole released against a September tenth, and it's going to take even more people as we head to the ship to get us through February. But. I. Thank you guys in I know. Very few people say I miss seeing you guys around I really do I really miss. You guys, so thanks for the time.

From the Podium - Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid and GM Brett Veach discuss contract extension

"What's up everybody Pete Sweeney here with our pride dot com and the podcast channel content trained continues this time. It's a celebratory edition of from the podium on Tuesday afternoon. Patrick mahomes chief General. Manager Bret each and chiefs head coach Andy. Reid joined the media via Zoom Conference Call to talk about Patrick Mahomes ten year contract extension years in total that will make him the quarterback of the Kansas City chiefs until. Until Twenty thirty one. We have these zoom press conference in full, and you're about to hear right now up by welcome everyone to this guy's zoom today. It's certainly historic day for the Kansas. City Chiefs Organization, a great fan base that she's kingdom in really the entire NFL I, if there was ever player that was truly deserving of the largest contract in US sports history it's is definitely patent homes pat. Exemplifies excellence both on off the field yesterday when I was with at and his family and his agents kristen lead. We just talked about how amazing this relationship has been really how we've come full circle in three short years started back in two thousand seventeen. This organization Clark. Hunt a mark Andy. We had a belief in a vision that that was going to be the next superstar in this league and. In really do things Li hasn't seen before. And after a twenty eighteen season that saw pat throw for five thousand yards and fifty touchdown passes while being named league MVP. Following that up with a nineteen season that saw him bring help us bring the first Lamar Hunt Trophy to Kansas City our first super bowl win in fifty years, and capping that off by being will MVP. Here we sat at the negotiating table. Now was pat and his family putting that same trust and same belief in our organization in deal. This lanes doesn't get done unless Patrick. In the vision of the hunt family The trustee has for coach, Reading His outstanding coaching staff. In Our in our personnel staff I think when you take a step back and look at this contract though I think the most exciting thing of this contract and I believe pat would agree with me. Is is that this contract shows just a a total commitment and love for Kansas City. Pat Wants to win. He wants to start a dynasty and he wants to do all those things here in Kansas City, and it's extremely exciting for us in our fan base so before turnover coach read real. Quick I. Do want to give special. Thanks to his agents Chris Cabot. Lee Steinberg further really their open-mindedness, and certainly we're all in this together they wanted protections for Pat, but they also wanted to make sure that pat was surrounded by talent, and it's very important I. Mean Pat again is a is a long-term thinker, and Pat understands the long game here, and then on on our end my staff Brandt. tillerson crochet just for their creative thinking. Certainly, there's a lot of obstacles and hurdles to to overcome on Guinea dealing on doing a deal this magnitude in those those two were outstanding and again the effort they put in. Just want to thank them so much. For everything with that light turnover coach. Thanks sprint. I'm so happy for for Pat for the Kansas City Chiefs Organization and Rally for the city Kansas City for Evans opportunity to have. A true franchise quarterback here in Kansas City one that was drafted here which hasn't happened. For almost the duration of the of the chiefs organization so. And then I I. Think Brent did a phenomenal job of organizing this and bread I mentioned before had been instrumental in helping, bring pat to the to the chief see I joked that he were Dorsey and I out, but bring the brilliant pat here glimpse of. Instead, he was the best player ever say. And so that's kind of come to fruition for all of us to witness like bread head. but Prescott, a great crew, all of his older scouts guys work with them, but in this particular Christian and Brandt. Tell us really I think Brandon, a phenomenal job of organizing the numbers for this, and and the plan along with Brad of setting this up in those happens without without Clark Hunt obviously That's a that's a bold move. We we've. Gone above and beyond and found something that is phenomenal for Pat and his family, and also for that Kansas city cheese apples so so aware of of the surroundings like he is on everything of making sure. Not only was his deal done, but also almost to a t resent that he wanted he wanted the organization have an opportunity to beam Brian Player, and that's a this day and age. That unselfishness is a tough thing. The final time, so my hat goes off to him and his maturity in this whole thing and. And then you ought. Brad mentioned Chris Cabinet, and the the time that he spent on the last few years here. A couple years of visiting Hart building was always here. And went above and beyond there to make sure that this all worked for. for patent, his family, and also the chiefs and then Lee Steinberg. Tremendous history with quarterbacks in this league Manson awesome so. All in all I think it's a great thing very seldom you come out of a deal and go you know what it's a win. Win A win for the player and also a win for the team, the organization and so I'm. I'm I'm one happy guy. Put on my best Tommy Bahama for all today just to celebrate this man. This is this is a big day and it's. It's an awesome thing and. Again Retina I just appreciate everything that the hunts. Do we've got a great president and mark dive and Artas on everything, so it's. It's a nice. It's a great great event here. Over Mass, celebrated so with that enough said I'm a turnover to the man of the day here and that's that's bad. Listen as we get to the questions. Let's really focus on directing the questions at. Four Pat, and and not the Brittany are going to be there, but we want him directed more on the presence this situation, and not making this just a all in all the press conference here in a press conference form patent in this day in his life so. With that panel over to you. Yeah, thanks, coach, obviously a very exciting time for me me and my family. I WanNa give thanks to the so many people always earth crashed WanNa. Give thanks. To God for put me in this situation I. Mean truly an amazing situation where I'm surrounded by a lot of great people, lot of great players are a lot of great, just being to who have supported me my entire career so far in I'll talk about my family with with with Britney. Mom and Dad muscle fourteen that has of with me the way, and that they still have continued with me and treated me the exact same Thank them. The chiefs organization like I said earlier on the tree breadth each Markdavis Clark, hunt everybody I mean it's been a team effort the entire way. That's a special thing about this organization is that. Like v Centers Trust, amongst everybody are as much as I trust in them. They trusted me. We're able to go out there and get this contract on the right way. That's not only gives me the security that I've always wanted, but also allows opportunity for the team to be around me. The entire duration of my career and I fully trusted. Things will get handled the handle the right way as we go throughout this career, and that we will be in a position to win a lot of football games mostly when a lot more championships as my career goes on a other people are gonNA. Think that she's kingdom. Obviously, their support for me has been has been tremendous the day. I, I got drafted the fact that. That they've been been behind me and supporting me has been truly special one of a time thing I knew the moment I stepped on the on Arrowhead field that that they were going to that. This is the place that I wanted to be for. My entire career reiterated that my entire career that I did hear can't wait and then my agents, my support team I mean. For them to go out and do it do this contract and do it the right way. I told him what I wanted from the beginning. They brought me I mean different options were in hand-in-hand with the the chiefs, the entire time, and Vj, his team and coaching, and all the coaches. They pretty much just put it out there into the best way that like I, said that we could be a great a great team. Team, moving forward and obviously have security that I want It's an exciting time. I'm just glad that I get to continue building this legacy in Kansas City a obviously with everything going on in the world with with with Kovin at all this different stuff to have this this stuff, this disability go into the community and be able to give back. I, I can't wait not only build this legacy on the field, but also at. I'm excited for the future Ed for not only the Kansas. City chiefs in the communities that brought me up so far. All right guys. We're going to open it up to questions now I will start with Bj Kissel. Go ahead BJ. Brett my question is for you and versus congratulations getting this done. I know it's something you guys have said. You've been working on for a while. Question would just be the the timing on a contract like this the amount of work that goes into get it done Can you help us just paint the picture of the framework and the amount of communication, and how long it took for the framework to come into place, and then obviously the the more details and are going back to the Super Bowl. Clarke had mentioned that you guys had been in discussion just curious when it kind of ramped up and how that process went down. Or really you know wheat, and it's Kinda been set out there that. Going back to I think the first free agency that that I was a part of back in eighteen we had the mindset to structure deals to prepare for for an extension, or pat again it goes to the level of belief and faith we had in patents is before he was a fulltime starter. Now one thing that's favor is as the seasons went on to number kept getting bigger and bigger, so we were planning for the normal quarterback market back in eighteen for NC will went back gets to this point. We'll be right here and then. It took off so You know that certainly was a good challenge to have? But you know there it goes back to you know my initial statement, just brand Tillis in Chris J. You know I remember when the trout deal came out. You Know Brandt coming down to my office and said this is that's going to be a baseball contract. I mean that's how good this is. GonNa be, and and you know we need to start thinking like this and the cool thing about it is in coach alluded to this where you know the maturity level of Pat in this day and age. It's it's. Certainly You know you look around in three or deals for your deals, but. You know patches with so committed to the city and wanted certainly security like every player does, but also wanted to be here in into win and and and. Establish a dynasty and he said she let's be created. Let's figure out a way to do this and I want to be here for the rest of my career. And I WANNA win and so the discussions on this contract of really been years in the making. Go to Adam Tyson. Go ahead Adam. We. WanNa. Ask You. With. Regard to this contract a lot of times when you give a contract like this magnitude or a big contract. turned. Larry APP give. This. Whole whole rat little bit. You're like. Wow, there's risking ball. What what's your? You're feeling in that regard on this contract. will be taken care, but the franchise will get his minds work on this deal. Well, you know a again. It starts back from two thousand seventeen, and it starts from the initial stages. When you know we saw this kid, we had a vision and we knew the pairing. Pat With coach read. was going to be something special, and they were going to be able to accomplish. Things at the league seen hasn't seen before, and again you go back to you know Li MVP performance. Performance in two thousand eighteen and then what he accomplished last year and helping our organization when I first time fifty years, and it's coach Pat will tell you there's there's still a lot of improvement four PAT and his game, and he still growing and learning, he's hungry but the kid you know, listen, he's he's on the Lacolle her, so it's it's a little awkward Bam specially special kid in. At such a young age, she's so mature, and he understands big picture thinking and he understands that. There needs to be a sense of You know long term. Thinking and I want to win a longtime here in Kansas City. There are only a certain ways that this can be possible and this is what's important for me. I know I'm going to be taking care of the rest of my life, but I want to leave behind legacy and Kansas. The place I'm going to do it, so again. It's just a special day and it takes a special kid to you know to you Adam. You asked about our level of confidence. In Patent in in this contract and I think it speaks for itself, and people can look at this any way they want to, but. I mean this contract is is a ten year extension, and this is something that you know. We believe that there could be another small one after it because that's how confident we are in this kid. Let's go to San melander. Go at Sam. Brett So obviously, this contract is because of the player in the in the dollar amount involved, but I'm curious. If the negotiation was different, based on just the comfort level of the relationship, you had with hat, but also with with Chris, Cabinet and the agency then. Yeah I think that. I was. That's true I i. don't think you know so many times. It's it's. In every every aspect of the NFL is competitive and and deals are are no different is. It was unique in the sense that there was never a sense of. We need to win. This or we have to win this this was. How can we get this done? And again that goes back to pat because ultimately. Kristen Lee worked for PAT in. That s the the have again I. Keep repeating myself this long-term vision on on what he wants legacy to be but there was never a sense. Again seen in all different forms fashions with bigger deals longer deals. There's always a contentious point. I don't think it ever reached that because we were just all on the same page. We are all committed to making this work. Certainly, PAT is deserving. Of the largest contract in US history but how can we get creative to recognize him to set those benchmarks, but also find a way that we can surround him with talent, and he can go out there and have fun, and and do the things that he's capable of and You know I think Sam to your question. I, think that having that relationship and again going back to two. Griffin I talking about his vision back in seventeen, and and now that we're here, let's continue to sin in. How can we? Turn one super bowl into three and four and You know continued at that's. What's going to nate Taylor go ahead make. Lo thanks guys for doing this. This is I guess two questions. I have one is four. Bretton in one is four, Patrick. For Brett for you just how much of this when you alluded to the fact that this is going to be more baseball structure on how much of that was designed around the idea, even thinking back in when thousand eighteen of trying to figure out the best way possible to create more flexibility for you guys to build around a the rest, the Ross around accurate in Patrick. Given your your background. I know you alluded to this in May. Learn how contract negotiations are handled through your father understanding of the baseball historical context the contracts with this magnitude. How much did that give you a perspective as to what you exactly wanted in terms of having long-term security with the organization? While I'll jump in real quick on my end. L. Toe his structure was something that was fluid we had. Envisioned certainly With Pat and having the tutelage of coach Rada a really good player so When we started doing freezing contracts in eighteen, we did so with the mindset of structuring on those deals to allow for. A deal of a franchise quarterback level now the the bigger or broader concepts you know. The the baseball type contracts was something that you know as the eighteenth season went along, and as we turn into the th season you know brand, tell us that was an ongoing project for him. And he was literally down my office in in the spring of last year and talk about thinking about this. I'm thinking about that Hopefully you know we can refine these ideas and concepts, even more than when we get to the stage will have something to work from and so a lot of credit to those guys, but This was something net. We talked about different forms of this and as you know, pat success, continue to climb We'd geared more towards this type of concept so again just a lot of good foresights from the staff that have worked for me. To, answer your question at me. I I would say it definitely played part I mean. Obviously being able to talk to my dad about it, be able to talk to letroy about it and him going into the process. They didn't sound that long term contract. They saw players you did, and they saw players who went about it now. They kind of got that that long term security. We're able to go out there and play free knowing that they had the security that they all had always wanted. A deathly was something. Something that I was able to talk about and get a lot of information from them and look I mean you. Can't I mean there's no can't do this? With every single organization, the organization with the stability in the culture that we have in the chiefs organization. I felt very comfortable out of trust that I could do a contract like this. Knowing that we're going to have that. Thanks ability, but at the end of that contract. Let's go to Sorrento go instrument. I thank you for the time. Guys I guess for Bredon and I'd be coach. Read as well on this. Just kind of you've said a number of times you know. Maintain the ability to go out and put talent around Patrick. The numbers huge right like what what is there any thing you can point to as to how that is? No, that number doesn't just can't allow the ability to put players around. How can you have you know? What kind of uncertainty do you have with the cove environment on what the salary caps going to be right? This isn't just a big commitment. It's a commitment, not knowing if you're GONNA have fans in the stands, not knowing if you're gonNA finish season, and not knowing what the economic environments going to be so, how much does that hang over this contract and and really putting the team together the way you're talking about? Well I. Think when you talk about these you know A. These are common. Though when you have a structure like this, I think one of the things that's beneficial for us. Is certainty certainty in regards to what we're dealing with every year when these things don't get workout and you know you're running into the final year. Your deal or you know there's tags here and there and things go up. Up and then comes contentious. I think we're dealing with a known factor. Now we know we're going to be We also know that there's potentially tough time ahead of us and none of us know exactly where the cap is going to be next year, with of prepared for that to some degree but again until you know southwards. You don't have the final numbers, but we're dealing with You know no numbers known figures it prepares us for the future allows us to plan and prepare every year. And you know like I said you know when you have. Structure and stability that we believe at least success, and and you know again this contract the way it's laid out. It just allows for us to have a defendant working number to work from every year, and within his contract. We can do certain things you know to create cap space, but now we're dealing with something that we know as the unknown, which is never good scenario for teams encounter during an offseason. Around I'd probably the. Branch said, so he covered every base on. But I will tell you though Pat. He was very conscious about the whole Situation about being able to keep players, so I mean that was in the dialogue there and emitted known us. I'm here who we can work that out. We can do it. Then read and Brad Chris got together. They just mastermind. The thing may at work. And and so they came up with a plan. And? Presented it the Chris Cabin. Between at Chris had some ideas of a twain of the. Formulate something here, but. I'm just saying Clark who is brilliant has his. He's. GonNa phenomenal mind. In particular business of business line so. Also has named oversee this and understand it. Put in whatever input he had on it. And he's more aware of. Komen situation than e by being the owner of the football team and so. He felt comfortable with when it was all said and done that. will be able to Be Able to go forward and snow. Signed players even if the cat does a decrease alert. I will I will say this that if the ownership doesn't work out. For Clark, he'd be a great guy because it was It's funny how you know we're. We're so buttoned up and we've been working on concepts and ideas for this for multiple years and again this deal can go as smoothly as as it could have gone, but. When we did run into a couple different hiccups. It's amazing how quickly car can answer and You know it's a as coach mentioned certainly brand Chris Paul legwork there, but Clarke has always a few tricks up his sleeve and he's extremely We truly appreciate his oversight on. That's for sure. Let's go to Bob. VESCO BOB for Brenton Patrick. Both what was your expectation? When the conversations I started about, get a long term deal done in Kansas City like what did you both kind of have in mind? How did you think it was going to go? I'll have PACO. I mean. I think coach. He's already kind of touched on it a little bit and I I've said it a lot and some press conferences that I've had in the passes. obviously the security to take care of my family, and my and my future generations of family also wanted to keep really good football players around me I. Mean I'm not GonNa sit here and lie and say that Admiral Grateful Ball team around me doesn't help. Help me when I'm on the field, and so I wanted to find the best. Best way that I could do that. Not The like as we talked we as Christian. In all these guys Chris Mejet in all these guys talk that they came to me with this this idea, this concept of obviously making me financially secure, but having the ability to go outside these recent all these guys in like returning twenty or twenty, one twenty two starters on knew that this was the way that was the right way to do it where we can accomplish votes, those things that are so important to me. I would just add that We were a little how the game just because of the ongoing dialogue that we've had for a year plus. Sometimes you get into these negotiations and. Both teams are starting from scratch and ideas and concepts are. are from Learfield but because we had a unique relationship. Dating back from before the draft process to I mean almost every home game as coach mentioned Chris always always being here and You know there was a lot of times Chris spent the pregame discussing the things that actually came into play right before they the assigning, so we were ahead of the game Bob in that regard because we had so much dialogue leading up to. Let's go to Hervey GOP. Go ahead, Herbie. This questions for coach read includes some. Great quarterback and head coach Tandems Radi check. Breeze Peyton Far Holmgren. What is this contract? Do For you and your coaching shelf life. When you know you got mahomes in Kansas City for the next twelve years, and you're going to be in your young seventy. So, what does it do for you? A young seventy. Listen! I haven't got to that point mentally where I'm thinking about retirement I love doing what I'm doing. One of the great things about this job is as when you look forward to coming to work to deal with guys. The players coaches in unlucky enough bureaucracy players. And coaches, and then this guy here. At it, even better science he, he has A. We always talk about the great quarterbacks making random greater so and he has unique ability to do that with with his teammates and. I. You know the Honey Badger is part of this, too, so he? He was the first guy texted myself and Brett when the deal got done, we got tax from. From Tehran, he said Hey, where a great thing you did, but they both those to make our jobs very enjoyable. come to work and have two great leaders like that. Along with the other guys love to play the game, so listen. If it takes me under my seventies much roller. Be Bad gone I'm ready to. Say Honey, badgers takes like five times. He's message me on Instagram and twitter am. Typed up for sure. All right, guys. We got time for a couple more with coach and Brett before we let them go and roll with Patrick. Let's go to Sam McDowell Sam go ahead. On this this is. Patrick I wonder at what point during the conversation. To delinked really settle sort of exclusively on on a longer term was shorter term deal like four five six years never discussed in what was the motivation released what side sort of drove the conversations to to focus more exclusively on something like ten years. Listen I mean you know Chris? In Lee and I don't want to speak for packages might take on on this was they wanted you know they had two big once, and that was protection for Pat and then. Surrounding Pat talent in you know coach. I know as well as anybody that if you. Homes is healthy and they're around. It's unstoppable and so you know the the framework was. How can we get him? you know the most in protections at the same time continually to allow him to have greytown town around him, so he kind of started in the longer term on again, and this goes back to. Agents working for the player, being very mature for a young age and understanding that. I have a great city. Great Fan base, great ownership, a hall of fame head coach, it GonNa be hard to beat this And how can we Put You know how pat we put patent. A position where he is is playing in the game, which is and on top of that do so in a format that. Will continue to allow us to you know, have town of and so again I. Give Credit to their staff of just wanting to do a legacy deal, and not just a cash deal, and that's what people have to understand in saying that it's easy to say that but you have to have special in a unique person like we have in to understand that it listen. I'm, GonNa make more money than I'll ever know what to do with an I just I want to see organization reward, other players and I want to see Myself surrounded with these players like the Badger. And tyreek and all these guys so you know. I joke with Chris is said it's almost impossible to do the biggest contracts or history an avid player look you know unselfish, but somehow a again is able to do this unique way. Where is highest paid player in the game and we'll be for a long time yet does so in a way that allows us to reward teammates along the way it's very unique in I. Don't think the city. Should, take that for granted I. Know They won't but again I think back to my opening statement that this this contract in the length speaks to pass loving commitment. to Kansas City. He wants to win. Any wants to do here against. Yeah I mean I also get second, said he probably hit around the head I mean. Like I said I win there I went in there with open mind I went in there was like those two concepts. I to keep great players around meter in the opposite reward them for being great players and support, and being a great teammate and everything like that and and I wanted the security that I've always talked about and I feel like Once the once these this concept came to me. I was all aboard was all about the details at that point, and I thought. The cheese organization did a great job in i. a lot of phone calls with with Chris. In lately Inam interrupted a few golf games about every single day and so It was a I went in with the. And the concert came to me. I love the idea in and we've got to do it the right way at besides the future had. Guys. I know by has a question for all three of us will close out coach and Brent with questions from hey. Hey, guys, congratulations on this so much just. Trust in all this and it's obviously courteous. Essential I wonder if Patrick, you could just describe going back with Ambien Brett. How you became to trust them so much, and if all three of you could just speak a little bit more to that point about. How your relationships make this drive this. Yeah I mean I think. Trust is something that's built it like with my three years. I've been in the chiefs organization. You see the trust that everyone has within each other everything that that coach Reid says everything that the says and everyone in the organization says that those things happened in a put in the work every single day, It's like a challenge of I can try to Be Co. tritter beats to the facility one one of these days. I mean they didn't. Didn't as much effort as anyone in. You have a culture like that from the top down for Clark, hunt all the way down to the Sarma box mark to the seventy fifth seventy nine years. Whatever it is man on the roster I mean that's that's the that that trust. Culture is up not wanting to be a part of at its. That's built every single day and I. It's been built every day. I've been part of this organization. MOMMY JUMPING So by I would tell you that when you talk about team. You talk about trust I think it's one of the biggest factors. Where you're dealing with an organization and a team of. viscount trust Mark Donovan Clark. I can't trust breath. And then the players and keep an open book. With everybody in the group here then Y'all problem. You're not gonNA of sustained winning and So we've tried to strive for that and not only do pat a we doing. Coaches do with their players and and. and. Don't don't say something that that you can't back up her that you don't me and and so we. The players eventually takes a little bit time. Their albums glares eventually. ended up. Trust in that. You'RE GONNA. Do try to do what's right for them, and and then likewise in the organization. We tried to do the same thing a one. We. Shall, be as honest as you can with able, so they'll trust you. Sometimes honesty's thanks for in this day and age, but. When all this technology! There's no better time to be honest and right now so. You're you're held accountable for everything that you say so? It's best to. Be Truthful don't say anything so anyways. That's kind of how we roll breath. I'm I'm sure can add onto that, too. Yeah, it's you know unless we. Both and I got to learn from the best and coach. Read, but look when when I come into the facility every day, I know impact though is that there's not going to be a team. In the NFL, it's more prepared to play on Sunday and coach, and I know that when we're in the building that there's not going to be a quarterback that is going to be more prepared to play in lights. Thing about coach know that draft that you our our staff will be ready to go and be prepared, and and again it's just accountability. It's knowing that you know. We trust the guy next next to us to do their job and we feel like we have some of the best in the NFL. Do it and it's that trust is. It's infectious Oh. Then it's. It's breast, everything, breads, contract, negotiations and layer relationships but everyone knows that there are really no egos in business. It's hard to really aboard, but you know. Everybody wants to see each other succeed and were able to upper those guidelines in coach. Read is one that sets the tone for that and we just follow his lead. Brett, coach. We appreciate you guys joining us. We're going to let you hop off and continue on with Patrick. Thanks guys. Do. All right. We're going to start with BJ Kissel for Patrick Go ahead. Thanks again I know you've heard it before Patrick. Congratulations on getting the deal done. I'm sure lots gone through your mind lately, but. For, you going back to high school and the decision that you made to pursue your passion of playing football and college. You're playing baseball to. Turning down more than a million dollar signing bonus. How does it feel now in a chance to think back of just what it means to you to kind of bet on yourself in that way and win from a financial perspective, but also the message that you can now share just about telling everyone to trust in yourself. Follow your passions all those things that you preached that you've kind of lived it now. Yeah I think. The I haven't really reflected on I think yet honestly, but I think the biggest thing is like you said I just how always I've always been billed as I always thought of myself as just a follow my passions, and do whatever I can. The Best of my ability at that was still instilled me the my parents, when I was young. Presto bleed the same things today and it's never. It's never been about money to me. Me Obviously it's it's it's. It's awesome, and it's exciting time for me but at the same time I've always done about being the best person, the best player that I could be every single day, and this is another step with our staff journey. That's just the beginning and I'm excited that we have this done and I have that security wrong out there it'd be the same flair that I was and that that same person that I was. The day after Nestle. Let's go to Pete Sweeney the. Bad, congratulations, thanks for taking some time. I was wondering you know I. Know that you had been tweeting and is a couple interviews over the summer watching the last dance in Michael Jordan's career, and what he was able to accomplish, and you have had one of the most outstanding starts to any NFL career, and I was wondering how much maybe that legacy idea of you wanna put together, not only good year or two, but a good fifteen years. How much of that went into? Okay, even though I'm going to make this really big number I'm still allowing this organization to surround me with pieces so that maybe I can achieve things that no one else ever has. Yeah? I mean I haven't even before that I mean I. Think watching the last dance watching. Watching Michael in all the stuff that he did. Net that he's he's done and successfully as Affirmation I mean it's something that I've always believed in those things about the legacy about going out there and being the best player in the best teams around me. And it's not. It's not about one person. It's about the team and I think that's that's the biggest thing that you see that with our whole entire team. As you see, we have laws guys coming back. That WANNA be a part of this part of this culture that will be a part of trying to build a dynasty 'cause. Those things aren't easy to do, and we understand that, so it's GonNa take a lot of hard work at a lot of dedication. We have two guys. We have in this locker. Let's go tarez. Go ahead, Chris. Thanks for doing this Patrick Congratulations. I. Thought it was really interesting what you said about Your Godfather in your. there, certainly, some people around leave did want you to tie deal percentage at a cap, so but I'm curious exactly what Letroy in your dad told you about. Why was important to build a contract that was beneficial for both sides and wouldn't be a super just negotiation. Yeah I think I. Think the biggest thing that they kinda they preach to me is kind of same thing that I had already thought it was good to hear them this that you want to have great players around you don't WanNa. Be a guy that that takes up the money, and then all of a sudden you're you have the sign different guys that will take cheaper deals because I. Mean you want to? Those guys need to be rewarded as well. It's not about one person there, and I truly believe that I know the situation that I was brought into, and how good of a situation it was the city here. Here behind a great quarterback taught me a lot and I got to play with a lot of great players that moment stem suboxone in so I understand that a bigger perspective I guess you would say Outta how to go out there and obviously the security that I want but at the same time reward the guys that have helped me be the person that I am either player that I am and I. I feel like with the contract, and in how how it was done I got both of those things is. I wouldn't be able to reward. Players allow these guys around that. Build a culture even before I was here. And at same time at the security down, know that Matthew generations will be able to have. Let's go to Harold Koontz Herald. Patrick congratulations. That's really big. When you hear number, five, hundred, three million, and all this kind of astounded. We heard number when you hear that and everything you went through. What does that mean to you and also you know? How do you push this forward with all your off the field stuff? And how do you use your name? Your legacy to push everything that goes everything you do amazingly off the field as well. Yeah I think that's the. That's the main thing obviously in the time. Time that we are in right now, I mean there. There's so much opportunity to go out there and trying to help the world become the best place. They could possibly be enough to like having this security distrust within the organization, obviously the financial help I'll be able to do that and not, and not only in the Kansas City community were as much as I can as quickly as I can, but hopefully around the world and so. To have trust in the organization to be behind me, not only on, but Austin field as well I'll be to make a huge impact in this world and many ways, and I'm just excited for the next step in the continue doing whatever I can to help achieve that. Let's go to Steve Walls, go ahead Steve. Congratulations Man this. Do Push you in a League company, not only in football, but in all of sports in your mind is ever as the pressure or its rotation in your level of play, and can you also can you walk us through when you receive the golf from the ORCAS saying that the deal was done? Yeah. I. Don't think it raises the pressure. Honestly I mean. That's just to mean money. Never never was the main objective to me. It's all about going out there and winning football games and winning with your teammates. Your brothers are and the culture that that you've been a part of them. That's always about I mean last year I felt like I had just as much pressure on myself to go out there and win at all Nancy Championship game that year before. Going into next season we'll have the same amount of pressure of going out there and showing that it wasn't a fluke. Trying to find a way to go back to back, which is so hard to do in the NFL but It's often where I. It's not about the money to me. It's about the going out there and winning not only for myself, but for the guys around me and then. I got the call actually on July fourth. And that deal I mean there was minor minor details still had to get finalized, but Chris called me told me that. That the numbers were were they were at? Obviously, you've all seen that we had gotten the guarantee. The guarantees guarantee mechanisms that were cut of one of a kind that we haven't seen so far. That gave me that security so I knew that. I knew that once that was in place that after that it's just the little details. And so we. We got I got July fourth on July six, so it was It was a great great Forcing the fireworks in the backyard with my family. We've spent a lot of hands up here, but we're running out of time. We're going to our final three, and we're going to go Adam Sam and Matt Derek. Go ahead, Adam. Congratulations! On. Earlier that wants this concept came to you, or why were you willing to go so many years on contract rather than sight for a shorter period. See what things look like that and also. Are you gonNA. Make sure any stays around. Seasons. Yet I talked to him I. Think before I signed the deal, he he's really said y'all. He had no thoughts of the retired anytime soon so. Obviously it's a huge part in it. I think I'll having bret. Each a a young general manager who has done a great job at drafting didn't couldn't a lot of great players around me was definitely another huge a huge. A boost of confidence of time tenure extension, but yeah, I mean I think there's positives. To either or contracting Simon short-term contracting, kind of almost like that that bet on yourself type thing, but also I mean you never know what can happen in this sport? Asked the biggest thing about football. So me, having the tenure contract knowing that. I. Mean Things Obviously can happen? The economy could boost, but at the same time I mean you look at the world today and stuff can happen that way to is as I just wanted to have the security of knowing that I'm a candidate chief for a long time. I'm obviously going to have enough money that I'll be able to help out future generations, my grandkids, their grandkids and everything like that and at the same time. I mean I think. We did a good job with Chris. And Bread, and all those guys have enough money to pay all the guys around me and I think that that was what the huge the biggest thing of the deal that I loved about it. We're GONNA. Be a good football team for a long time. It's about going out there and just executed as a win. Gold Sam. Patrick congratulations just like you're hearing from everybody else. Look, I know. You have a lot of trust, Chris and Brett and what they do. Austin you're very detail oriented person just curious like beyond. I wanted to here for a long time went team to have money to pay the guys. How into the weeds? How into the details did you get in this negotiation with them? Yeah I I was pretty pretty beyond deep in their with told. Chris talking about Chris Column. He called me pretty much every day that he had a conversation with the chiefs to get updates and everything like that and so I mean these these these deals take a little bit of time, and they've been talking for a long time about these deals in I felt like I was very on what was going on, and I think the biggest thing to me, was those kind of guarantee mechanisms in the later part later years in the contracts. That was a deal Ciller. Of knowing that they have full trust in me and that the cheese are GONNA do whatever they can to the best team around me every single year until hopefully into my career. Let's go to Matt Derek go ahead. Patrick congratulations. You and everybody talking about the ability to add talent around you and Brett referred to the fact that you know this puts firm numbers, and you've got flexibility to make changes later. What is your expectations about whether? This is going to be a firm tenure Geel or you expect to have a team. Come to renegotiate times to move money around for cap purposes than how? Do you feel like this gives you an opportunity to put a voice into WHO's around. Join A team. Yeah I mean I kind of leave that to beach coach for most part a them. They've done a great job. building great teams wherever they were that was in Philly or if that was in can't say they built great. Teens pick the right players, so I mean obviously they come to me sometimes in asking a few questions here there i. I give my input, but it all comes down to to them pulling the trigger and getting the right guys and so obviously with the deal, and how we out with structured web, a lot of room to move money around and get and keep teams around and obscene. A lot of great quarterbacks do that in the recent years with with Stafford all these guys who do these different types of things. I wanted to have the flexibility to do that because you WanNa, you WanNa have a great team you don't want to. Be in the play-offs every year. You'RE GONNA be competing for championships, and that's my goal, and so have flexibility will be will be key to having success in your any of your out. We have one more guests and I think that wants to congratulate you. Not David. Can you hear us, yeah, guys? I gotta say. I'm a little disappointed. There wasn't a one smart ass. Question asked so I? Guess it falls to me. You know Mister Mahoney I'm sure you have a rich appreciation for NFL history in all the great quarterbacks and I consider you one the great quarterbacks. You! Probably know this. Johnny Unites. With the Baltimore Codes Colts in the off season worked at tile store now with this new contract. You feel like you are in a position now where you can stop working at the store in the off season. I think we'll take a few years before out to give up that one. That's A. that's a stable job that I will I have to have a steady income so I don't know if I'm GONNA give up on the Tau store I mean if plus you free towels, who doesn't Love Free Towels Mueller shower a nice dry talev. You are a good kid. One follow up question. The cheese have a lot of employees and there's. It's a standard thing. Everybody has to do so. Are you going to be filling out a weekly time sheet? I don't know about that honestly I. You know Altogether coach read Anga get a valid answer for you in all up and Brad you can get to you. Okay One last question you know these deals are tough loudon negotiating going on, and they incentivize them a bunch of different ways. It's been reported and it's just a rumor that at one point there was a higher you guys were looking for a higher cash incentive, but then you would also have to take ownership of the Las Vegas Raiders and that was look. Keep your price actually lower because you refused that deal. I think that information, but I heard that I'm GonNa get a lot of ribs out this deal and heard that I know a guy that as rid place out out in La that might be able to help me out with that. It's my house I work out on my porch. Come on! Can. Tragic we appreciate you joining US hopefully? We get to see you soon.

When a tim wellens lotto all the king amounting king of the mountains elect gil mata The astana pair. Alex ambu and the spanish channels louis leon sanchez. Our audio diarist. Nick shook submitted and scott within their with his teammate. Rob standard mark donovan and robert power of sun web. The former world champion. Marie kosta and jose joaquin row row half of movie star and mattia catania of decoding quickstep. And he was the last man to be caught with your three kilometers to go and that setup tricky sprint finish with a pellet omen that was splitting up as a consequence of the cold and wet as much of anything else. I would have thought and in the finnish straight. It was a win for twenty two year old. yes but philipson man from mall. Which is tom his hometown. And it was a bonus sprint really. A powerful finish was all shoulders and quotes on the uphill slightly pill run to the line and he was pretty convincing. Win ahead of pascal. Four hundred and yannick steamroller of to current quickstep in third fred. Right the young british rod with bahrain mclaren was fourth and while four primoz rogue late was another day just ticked off without too much incident. A tough one in the saddle and the cold and the wet but he is one stage closer to repeating last year's welter successively meaning to the ground tour by the cycling podcast brought to you by walker flexible loans bill for small businesses.

And we'll also hear from daniel. Free later talking i while the stage was going on and when it looked as if the the breakaway would away m you would. There was a strong break and they had a big lead am but daniel had been surprised this morning to hear a few writers talking about possibly coming into a bunch sprint. Because it didn't look down on paper and bought not is clearly borough hans grow and others wanted and not the quickness of the as you mentioned lionel. They're young sprint. Who was up there. But sam bennett was dropped in. One of the claims and sprinted was the aspirin philipson his first his first grand tour when he's very promising. Young sprinter maybe a bit more than that m. he is stepping down next year. Moving to absent phoenix dropping. The world tour although ops in phoenix. Are you know all all bought world tour. And they are. They're stepping up so it could. It could actually be a good opportunity for him there and but it was a very good sprint and he got the line right like yesterday. Getting the line rate was important. He had a fantastic at lido as well from evil oliveto you a team members michael moore comfortably good job for steam lab steam. The went a different way at two more markov which may be Ruined the i was surprised. Backroom ackerman was kind of Outmaneuvered by philipson. He gobbled physical and bite doesn't seem to have the speed that we've seen in the past at for ackerman may be subject to late in the year from. I don't know about well taken by espa philipson. Yeah indeed them in you. You mentioned around the was well for me what you want stage what we know how we want it. Actually you know you want it on paper but it. Yeah bit big disappointment new you would have fought you know With banner t would be by by far the leading. False in in the sprints and it was. I mean yeah philip we know we knew what philipson could do. And if you saw the celebrations on the end of the stage with a matching and all the guys from the us team well you know embracing men kissing a miran. They really you know the expected this to happen one day unfortunately for them he is leaving at the end of the season but I mean it is been one of the fool As you said you i dare not say sprinters because as you say is probably more than this but he still needed this great i Grant victory and what what next i mean. There was lots of discussion on on french tv body's ability as abilities in the in the classics and the world. The french french eurosport's consultants jackie. Do all should know. Because he went a couple Said he e y so indu the willing in flanders classics more than in the dense classics. But well it's a little bit early to to to say but yeah he belongs to these twenty two year old generation went through a famous Team you know that the from from which lots of the under twenty three riders come from I mean he's following the pattern that you know. They did the current the up and coming stars of cycling. Have been through so you'll be exciting to see. You want to see what he does. Another little thing that the jacket you pointed out in the in the finish is that because of the rain today as some writers were wearing rain. Jackets and or jackets and the others didn't send them. According to john the fact that philipson was just wearing his jersey for the era. But if you an advantage in the sprint who knows yeah you mentioned philipson. Came through axel. Marx's dumb team hagens berman action sought did his lead today new olivera. If you think back to last year's tour de france rich he was in The uae team lineup and he and christopher alexander kristoff were sort of sharing sprint duties whatnot and philipson had a crash on the day that Julian felipe one to epinay the champagne stage and i think of crashed again and pulled out of the race in When it reached the mountains But i must admit when you look you a team members and until obviously tied i gotcha winning the tour de france. You would have thought philipson would be the kind of ride that they would be very keen to hold onto sort of successor in waiting to alexander kristoff similar in at a sprinter. Who can probably tony's hand very much to the classics. They obviously got mattaya trenton. Arriving next year as well so maybe it's as simple as not enough room on that particular compartment in the team when perhaps so much of the resorted will be focused around supporting pugachev in the tour de france. A cough apart from what much in what was the nonda's was saying on on eurosport It's it was philip since choice to to to go to our senior not you. The party were wanted to keep in. Who knows you know. I mean he's he a very good team. And which i think this year has proven that. They're they're more than just matthew vander pol and one. Somebody asked me on twitter. Recent she whether the repair along with borough hans groer when they signed pizza gone a lot people thought they would be a one man team and are certainly not not that opposite. Phoenix seemed to be going a similar similar direction. They've got a very good year and definitely more than just the the vander polls show and they're stepping up again next year. May well be to france next year as well. Yes so guys. I'm exciting sprints In a way. I mean maybe not what we expected but he was interested in in the finale. But under french cornerside today. I mean the big news was obviously that jiomart and now in if he doesn't crash or anything you know and timely happens before the before we reached they reached madrid Ill keep the polkadot jersey. It'd be the king of the mountains and is kind of become its achievements for mata with women. Cena all along you know how improve This year and it's funny because it's it's it's it's it's become a kind of the french specialty. Your french property. The the us polka-dot jersey in the wealthier. And it's also become kind of coffee these specialty because remember the vindman coochie when it. Four times and nikolai won't once send the and now guillaume motto is also a coffee this and and of course the other winners of the king of the mountain jersey in the french wieners. Were lukla leblanc Laura baron lasser show flab usha so it s quite jersey. obviously that's really coveted in france. A little bit different blue instead of red dots but once again i was given the season his head. Think you know gigi yomata really deserve to to win something and you all well. He has definitely stepped stacked up this year. An it would be nice win a stage. He probably deserves a stage when the welter well. Maybe on saturday the crowning final mountain stage in the king of the mountain jersey. Just on the coffee this link as well francois that you point out it's probably quite an important competition or a good way. For days to make an impression in the welter of course coffee. This has been a longtime partner of the welte sponsored the race for Think since two thousand and nine and his just lost years extended for another couple of years. So it's a long standing partnership that between of welter and competition of course when the right is crossed the line the the word they see on on the finish line is the is confidence isn't it. But i'm i'm not sure i'm a fan of the irregular-sized blue polka-dot and it does i. I'd much rather the polka dots. We're all the same size and in not knowing. Nice neat rows like the tour de france is now but Now just normal sized. Aw what do you may well. I'm looking. I'm actually looking in front of me. I beg picture of bernard the polka dot jersey in one thousand nine hundred six and it's A classic of the zone remain the two of the fraud. Anyway the the. Yeah yeah sure sent mentioned this before people people who may have heard this before but back in the day in the eighties when the classification was sponsored by cafe de colombia. The colombian coffee producer. The polka dots are actually coffee. Beans brown very dark brown or black coffee beans. They got where they throughout the throughout the a few years and of wealth for years in the wealthiest talking about it on the tour de france. All sorry sorry. End of enough welter. Yeah yeah yeah so know. There were slightly in one thousand nine. They were a feature to them today. Not the polk adults. Oh yeah well now. You're in my territory. Stefanos of red polka dots with little mountain profile of famous to adopt the mountains. Drawing on them Very attractive boever russian here from the right question to which i don't know the answer but he is. Why are the dots. Blue in spain It's it's quite probably two to be different from the tour de france but yeah maybe there's an explanation. Why yeah thanks. Daniel should know. At least he must have an idea. Well let's hear from nick schulz. Shall we are audio. Diaries from richland scott. He had a big day today am and he liked. Most of us must have thought that break had more than reasonable chance of staying away to the finish i say. Another super stop Coupla guys wayne early very intent on controlling that and looked set to be a control date which would be not corral. Mr they started chasing came back together and they can take off again Which took us into two around the the point where there was a cat three club where i was super attentive in mocking mocking moves in and trying to get into a bigger group. It didn't go there. But we went down to the senate and it was a little a little kick off of that and her group of us went way on ended up being thirteen or so rod as i think really really strong group. Some serious names in god's with breakway experience Certainly going at knowing how to pick it and and we thought it was. It was actually going to be a breakway. That went to the lawn with a sort of caliber. I also had a team in the aaron enrolled standard which was really good to have. Both i have have two different bases covered If it were to go the distance i would've been able to cover the moves on the klein's towards finish with rob saving himself for the for the spring to sweep quick. We discussed that as we did. Think the break was going to go on but ultimately It didn't happen and to be on a pretty divided are you. You do a little work. Longest sage of the race wasn't ideal. Conditions was a cave wind And yet to sort of to to get into break first of all and then work your whole day to them with fifteen katie go. It's not but Just feels like wasted but ultimately mockery breakaway heating cycling. Generally the bunch decides and Tonight i decided that they wanted to bring it back and how hard you ought upfront. You never going. To reduce a charging peleton backup in india and smith and callum. Cin gave him an awesome laid down into the finish and he was able to get v Which is which is just awesome. Awesome results A little bit weird coming into the finish because There was some oil on the road so they decided to stop all all the tons at three categories so basically once we hit that three go the botulin to was small group gone to who went to the stage and then the the rest of the bunch shorter road safely in it was also soup. Cold that point Ridiculous off one of the. The coldest margaret sullivan had on a black Off the top of the loss kwan. Descending down into the finish it was but Another few days to go and Okay trying and looking for that opportunity and see we'll shoot Shoot that i do. I think cost team car. The back of the tax lease the. Pk the voice of radio tour. The tour de to remind us to tell you that the episode is sponsored by locker which is a community of cyclists or cooperating to provide insurance cover for bikes equipment. And was that kind of thing and well. We've got our own cycling. Putt cost a community within the lack of community. Haven't we richard people sign up and enter the code. Tcp they can become part of our community as well as the wider community and lack also doing crowd funding effort to fund the next stage of the company development and checkout locker dot co dot uk for details of that as well because they're offering equity anyone who invests in the minimum investment is a very manageable very reasonable ten pounds. Well laka are cyclists. They want be phased by expensive. Bikes are fancy. Kits when you Take out your insurance premium. You pay goes up. According to other claims. There is an upper limit if this sounds like the kind of bike insurance. You might be interested in go-to locker. Dot co dot k. And use the code. Tcp when you sign up but don't take our word for it. Let's hear from a satisfied lacquer. Customer muslims blocks a cup saw cling to start the two years ago as part of a challenge to land's end to john a growth which we didn't september nineteen started out with very by bike. Didn't even consider insurance because of the relatively low value of it once i started realizing sucking was going to become hall of my life got more expensive bikes and eventually decided to end to get some insurance and through word of mouth really I came across. Aca found the embassy. Knuckle pretty good on. The audience fluctuates in premiums by stone. The of claims in saving the box is useful lands end to join approach scott crack in it at nine months after we go back a when originally down the warranty route with scott as scott said that they weren't gonna cover under warranty that's the claim aca and he couldn't have been a simpler claim processed and sent in a couple of photos of crack and then had an email from them to ask more about the circumstances and when it happened and i didn't know exactly when it happened because i heard the crack happened when i was out with a rod so i just guys in that information about where happening when they pretty much immediately agreed to pay for a replacement frame which came from scott to the show where originally bought from And they should to me. And i in fact had the payment from actor before i actually hide out to the bike shop so yeah it was completely smooth very quick scotland replacement frame. Interestingly they even from actively offered to pay for any labor costs it would be involved in swapping components from the original into continued frame. Ten dollars dining to do that myself. Anyway very impressed lack themselves. Were quick as i could hyped in fact kept chasing me to say. Hey which was surprising. Really welcome once again to sign up to lock up insurance go to lacquer dot co us l. aka and use the code t. c. p. That will put you in the cycle. Podcast community within laka. Well donyo. you've made it to the finish time pueblo. La celebrity blah. The celebrity are really close. really close. i'm a picture somewhere else but you baffled. The headwind four i wanted to ask you about is you know in your role with. It the wealth to interview the the main the main british interests of a couple years ago but simon. Yates this year. Hugh kerr. Tom field today fun. I've lost two weeks. Yeah yeah he has he has. He's a great character but you coffee in his own way. Your favorite interview Siamese or hugh carthy and we know what you can get with with. Simon yanks always pretty much him down to the last syllable case necessarily with your coffee. Although like i'm starting to decipher to figure out what it is is likely to get the kind of response you want. This i mean guys down. Best is the the laconic slightly cheer start. Steinbrenner's he'll yeah not version if you listen to the doctor podcasts. Last night rich and very good. Listen i did headed back to back to the previous mitch. Done with hugh coffee quite fascinating. A different side to him. Definitely i suppose tamar donovan the other day as well the young british who trains quite a lot with you carthy and he spoke cover of another site where you really get him to shut up. He's he's he's a big talker and new suppose and understand what the buttons that you press. Because i mean your job is you know you've got to ask him pretty focused questions. You avai long and you can hear and then she with me docker. He's an interesting guy. There's a lot going on there. But it's quite difficult to extract that from him or site of sorts of you. Yeah well we've mutual friends. You caught off guard some mutual friends. You probably like on talking about rich. Have who has among pace helped me a little bit and give me a bit of a primer on what slightly set he caught the 'em along both of them topics that m may be quite comically completely foreign to me of course like the campus preston bus stations bus station. I don't wanna give away while to disclose anything that might give aways. Identity your identity her. Yeah so yeah biscuits you know. Someone will m producer. Director will probably get me asking about t- sooner or later and os subjects. That are very much while they not report. My lexicon new. I guess when. I think why siamese carthy and both come into my head pollock because they they're similar in away way. I think earlier. Siamese always had when you did these interviews are when i did these interviews run. Anyone interviewed him the sense he was thinking. What's this for. Why am i doing this. And i and i had the impression myself with you carthy as well at times but as he is. I mean in the position. He's a non he must be quite in demand the sense that he is coming into that and understanding. You know what is required of him. I think so. I'm over the past few days. He quite His media duties while enjoy at least in the sense that he's been very viable very amenable team doesn't have a attache at the race of the riders. After a failed the seventy in the mix in the morning they got stein on and then when they come off a couple of people working for the wealth is a who should have direction but forced to come into the mixon. It's on other teams. It has to be the prices of funneling them towards in coffees case us at liberty to say no which he did at times In rice by loss he's been coming in every day and he makes along the line. The i get the sense. He very much enjoys that in spanish interviews. I'm thinking enjoys swell as we head. Mitch's podcast a enjoys Being in spain speaking spanish is the all you this morning rates. Raise a question that you saw that a couple of times about whether he feels he becomes a different person. Money's in spain and short every good response. Not the sort of abrupt florida responses. Hoping for a sense. I've had and I think i may be. Maybe i'm speaking out here but I get the sense. He's enjoying how much everyone else he's enjoying. He's passed in the house and he can he can see the he tickling people on You know there's been stuff on social media doesn't use social media himself. I'm sure he's aware of some of the people. Were astonished to see him as a bit of an extrovert an unusual character yet. And i think He's quite quite conscious of that and on not to say it's contrived because that i think it is but tim. You know eight. Possibly someone being appreciated for being appreciated as they are and being comfortable in their own skin which is which is nice. I suppose and you know. I think the one thing that hugh coffee gives off an exudes really is the sense of someone who's gone their way throughout that life. You know i was interested to learn a bit more about his background in an m. his upbringing in in preston. I mean i think the various interfaces with citing the know it's not as he discovered sucking out of nowhere. Some of these pros do. But i didn't think he's still eight ten necessarily either and but then suddenly as he got older he definitely went his own way. You know when he joined kara row which is really fascinating decision on the fascinating pair create on and you know spiking to people have lost you days about how affected him. And you know it's difficult to imagine a what would have happened if he'd gone down the alternative policy. It's difficult to imagine him here. Hair the vuelta. Riding free niaz is the second or third leader and how that alternative version of events could have played out the year from compensation. Mitch's well how unlikely is. He's in this format the vuelta. Am you know the the you know. He was given the choice not to ride it and he was pretty broken after the tour and the world's and flesh will own so yeah fascinating that's not. That's that was a really interesting here by as well. How about the race itself and daniele em quiet quiet few few days really before saturday m we spoke to earlier. Now that you're on the final straight ho is gone. I mean from covid point of view. It's obviously been very successful event. Yeah i think from point of view to the last week and thought that it was it was going to be of an anti-climax. But i'm i think all of these was three to backstage. We're in the middle one at the moment Which throw up the possibility of well a spring Breakaways there's an outside chance day or some energy action and i am. The wealth has been out the cutting edge off of providing New blueprint for grand tours have lost Fifteen twenty years. I think the told franz has been heavily influenced by vuelta While the identity that the his tried to give itself and You know this year on eighteen state. While i'm not necessarily suggested in the other won't go down that in the future and that's been interesting on just how few nailed on sprint finishes. There have been You know even today. So we've got sixty sixty clumps today stagich this morning when i spoke to the bar and heard from a couple of other people in in sprint teams when they said that they might work for sprint. Because we'd sort of written a stage off was a has a breakaway stage and them. You know when you're on the ride built and you see a profile this very difficult to interpret. I think is to really good saying that. And we've had it sort of drummed into us. The sprinters are entitled to seven or eight nailed on opportunities for granted. But that sir. Adult mother may be will increasingly question You know. I think the total frantz in the jarrett's who sentenced and this year we will. We will blessed by the points jersey competitions which which made a lot of very interesting stages out vase that could otherwise have been quite routine with breakaways but But that and the police details sprint finishes here They might trump someone to to evaluate the the place in the grand tools tapestry of grindstone narrative that sprint finish should half Well as we watch the the break 'em might not be You know guaranteed to stay away. I've told so long way to go watching our diets. Nick schulz there. Another writer who came through kawahara went a different different route. Like hugh carthy. And but it's by no means certain they'll stay away we'll We'll leave you to get the finish daniel and for some verbal jousting with hugh. Carthy sounds quite daunting. I'm slightly nervous. Every time every time he sidelines over. Yeah yeah well. He did say he could have been a teacher. Has the the the arab. My mr carthy in las lays episode. What would he even say and what he would take city chinese question say about that was me. Teach maybe spanish or history. Or something say his history would be would be a good history supposedly woodwork. Were quite quite far apart. M yeah maybe would work or history of woodwork.

We soundly lost a writer to their guy. We've heard a bit from an who daniel mentioned there. He was a lantern. Rouge wasn't abe hurry. Tan field had to pull the wealth. Today well yeah. Let's hear very briefly from harry unfilled. He'll be flying back to the uk. I think from spain tomorrow. A struggling with A muscle injury since the rest. I had been hoping that the rest. I and a couple of days might help him get through but sadly not to be So yeah just finished. Stage steam of This year as well sir and Has lost so Flying by kits moral it was Pretty hard there. How the for three hours. That i was on the bike anywhere Struggling quite a bit with my vm. In my like from From last week it was all right yesterday. Came home today. And back combined with bob legs as well which they were pretty broad yesterday but today was just relentless headwind and also the moment you know in the peleton You lose a lot of time pretty quick and then yeah as much as i could ride three hundred fifty watts noam at a time. Co- even without and Must've was her. i couldn't really eat. I'll just completely broken to be honest. So i do a pull. The pin harry tan field and a corrections coroner. He wasn't launch. He was launched last week. But am i kind of hadn't been keeping my eye on that. That part of dc and he moved up quite a few places thanks to very good time trial The other day so start today. Stage one hundred and forty fourth with four other writers behind them on jesse but he's either race in say sad news. It was his first grand tour and he is He's out of the contract the end of the year isn't he so It's not great way from finish vuelta Sounds like he didn't have a choice in the end and a writer who is very much. Still in the welter and raising. Well he's been in a couple of breakaways and he was up there on saturday. Stage is mark donovan. A young writer at team son web am and you know he came through. The team weakens seth up. He's he's good friends with them. With james knox who of course kept a diary for us at the jiro recently They're from the same partner. World the late district and in fact they. I think they still live together in toronto. They shared apartment in girona am. He's only twenty one mark. Donovan and i caught up with him on the rest ages to find out how his first grunter was going. How are you finding your first grown to ho ho. Hos the body recovering. Yeah i mean obviously Yep pretty tough. I mean it's a a big big big race Lots of good guys and It's been a big fight pretty much everyday ready to get into break. It's been Holidays yeah being coping with it. Pretty well i mean with two weeks into it now and i'm tired but i'm not completely out of it yet. Still be happy to be Dinner ride like like. I did on saturday in almost two weeks into into the rice candidate. Really you know I ground told didn't really know what to expect in how the body was gonna react. Yeah i'm real happy with house going. Is there anything about the racing as well. That's different this taking me by surprise. Not much really. I mean i think yeah i mean it's just maybe maybe just the the amount that you know people. Are you know people really getting these breaks now. The inova she jason guys. But i'm pretty much everybody else's so aiming for aiming for a bit of a lucky break Yes never easy and you'll end up with you. Know real real strong guys at the end niagara as an easy rarely. I mean you're you're still very young rider. I mean it wasn't so long ago that guys your each only have done half of our grunter. Things have changed completely now when you look around and you see so many young writers doing well including guys on your own team. I decided make you feel design is out of pressure or does she create opportunities for you. Yeah so it's a funny one. I've been thinking about bit I guess in a way of people now expecting you to sort of do a bit better. Maybe a few years back. He never really expect someone in the first second is to be you know up the app. Now the there's released young guys doing crazy rides winning in a winning the toward front since that saw stuff Connecticut's it gives you motivation. And so if you feel like you can. You can kind of do that. But then also yeah i guess it is a little bit more pressure. Kind of good good so oppression mean. I was a tiny in l'avenir with here. And then just this year. You see him the toll on it's like. I was racing with these guys. Know vitally ago and racing with them set so Yeah pretty Facing very well. After after french corner earlier. This is a bit like british corner. Isn't it because the other the other an thing we wanted to mention in tonight's episode was the retirement announced today of in stunnerd rheumatoid arthritis unfortunately has has ended his career. He's had a very good career. He's been team sky not many Right from the star real store that team. I think they've really missed him. Actually in the in the classics las couple years when he's not really been performing as well as he's done in the past. They've really really missed him in a lot. Their results in the classics over the years have been entirely done to him and so our saad way for him to end his career but obviously as health comes first. Yeah you mentioned there richard. He's been with team sky team since the very beginning. Can you name any other ideas a been with the team. Since the very beginning who am guarant-. Thomas yep yep What are all spoil it for you chris through often. Don't look up for pretend that it's just tumbling forth from your nervous breakdown. Yeah okay yeah.

Just be guarantee thomas. Well joe was a rider in the first year still on the management staff bunk. Yeah installed i mean. Well what can we. I mean the one standout moment has to be the he completely mugged quickstep. I'm richard weren't you in only pet news blood and i mean that was a heck of a performance wasn't it was firmly stacked against him in not running and he pulled off absolutely brilliantly but also on the podium act powered by and a just a real strong team rider Reliable and Yeah i'm sure you know he'll be missed and particularly to to have to retire and and deal with rheumatoid arthritis. I mean. that's not something that particularly compatible with being a world tour cyclist. No and you know am he. Yeah i a collection of very strong placings in racism as you say one hadn't used by twice not second one was particularly memorable interview the following morning. The quickstep boss who he was really not didn't see the funny side of it shall we say a lot point But yet he will be missiles say that his team have of really they need somebody like that m who also creates opportunities for other writers just by his very presence because although he didn't win one of the the big you know the major classics he was always a contender always a favourite and always somebody who was a very good foil for other writers. They really do miss the moment if they want tough success in going back right to the very beginning because it just occurred to me. The standard and guarant- thomas were were warsteiner was second. Thomas was first in the junior power by way back in two thousand and four. And if you think about the kind of the genesis of the british cycling boom There that was still in the air when people were saying what. It's very well winning medals on the track. But what about road success. You're not gonna. You're not gonna make road riders by concentrating on track events. And i think both well certainly you know they were going off to get taught results in what admittedly at the time was still young if the first edition was only held the year before. It's i. I suppose it become much more of an obvious pathway Especially when you look at the round of winners Sort of the start of this decade. He has stolen floor on finish. I'll much pederson among others but Rice that had as also had a very strong british presence over the years. Lewis asking and tom peacock one recently. But gareth thomas and installed were the the to trail blazers in that respect. And i think that's actually quite an important step on the british cycling journey in from the outside he was the typical tough guy. You know a little bit. Like like know english defenders as we saw in france the old days i mean the guy. Yeah i mean. The guy doesn't look much but you can you know you can't get past him. I mean he was And also to to keep with the football comparison you know there are guys in teams. Were you know you. You don't really know what they're doing with went when they're in the team. The team wins when the not in the team. The team loses in you know from Outside britain that. That's that's a little bit. Did the kind of a rider astanin appear to her to us. You know really really tough solid guy. And i think kind of character then squint to be missed and the the other thing i wanted to say about it. Is that the beginning of this trench season. They will few stories saying you know discussing or elaborating on the the downfall. And maybe the death of a british cycling and of iran blah blah blah. But when you look now okays case. Tunnel is giving up. Fortunately and but. But i mean the the baton has been passed as you were mentioning before ariane film and i mean pitcock. I mean all these guys. I mean obviously gig in the half these are baton has been has been passed pretty quickly and handed pretty quickly and well unfortunately british cycling francois i feel like an old british central defender terry. Butcher of the peleton tarry. Yeah yeah off the ldp. Feel i was a great fan of feel kneel. At a time you know about it. I mean yet at work. It doesn't teammate. In grand tours. I mean easy to kind of overlook. The he's played but he was. He was a finisher in three of chris. Freedoms to a victories and increased rooms twenty seventeen vuelta victory and So that bears. What you're saying really there francois. He was also in the chris. Frames two thousand eleven for elsa victory. Okay cool down. He actually he route. Ten is only failed to finish one of wealth into those and ten. I know whenever. I saw him racist. He's a big guy. M looked like a rugby player. Actually more than a central defender. I was always amazed that he go right. Only eight thousand three kilos. Hope for us all so you can start in paris having made it right down down over the office. I really anyway and Part to weight ratio through the roof. Anyway we should wrap things up for tonight. Chops and france was or voire and for nine. Vern i i mean i did.

AP Editors Show - Reacting to Chiefs statement, offseason update, best homegrown Chiefs player (Ep. 14)

"The. And Away we go. It's another addition of the Arrowhead Pride editor show. My name is Pete. Sweeney I'm the editor in chief over at Arrowhead. PRIDE DOT COM join once again I'm esteem, deputy editor, John Dixon. It's a Friday June twelfth edition of Era had pride. Editors show happy. Friday to you John I'm glad to be here on a Friday. As the saying goes any Friday above ground is better than any Friday below grant. That is a little morbid. I gotTa say, but you know what. I like that energy one more day above the roses. I am excited to be here it. It's been. Really a historical week with all the things that Andy Reid said and Patrick Mahomes said entire and Matthew said it caused us to reshape the schedule of the era. Had Pride editor show this week? Wanted you to hear their comments in full because it really felt like one of those zoom press conferences where you come out and you say all right. That way that Andy Reid was. I'm going to remember forever. I agree with that I. Mean I. IT struck me. More than anything else about what he said. was his attitude about it was almost like we were back in training camp in two thousand eighteen, and he had that spring in his step, and that glint in his eye, because he knew what he had and Patrick Mahomes and he was happy and he was excited he was just the same. When he spoke to the press on, Wednesday was like he was talking about one of his grandkids. Right that it. You know the picture that he just put on his refrigerator, his pride in his players was. Right, there on his sleeve, you could hear it and everything that he said. So, you stand you read now I think sometimes you can forget that. He's been doing this as a head coach for two decades. I mean that is unprecedented. He's been in the NFL for like three decades, so he has seen this thing change over time, and probably had all this pent up feeling to say I wish this were different. Came off that way to me and just pure pride in his players in Patrick, mahomes tired Matthew for stepping up and being a part of that video for Patrick. Mahomes being the first person on that video to say black lives, matter and tired Matthew again just being a part of it and cool for read to just come on there, and you could play it a lot of different ways. And he just was in full support of his players and. I had a feeling that he felt this was a long time coming for even him. Yeah, and you know I hate to beat this drum being guy who's the same age as Andy Reid but I really identified with lot of what he said. Because you know, I, grew up in the sixties. I wasn't. It was kind of my older siblings decade. You know I was what thirteen and nineteen seventy. So I wasn't really a part of the big protest thing that was going on I wasn't in college. I wasn't marching, but identified with all of it. And I really haven't seen that kind of. commitment out of young people ever since. And as the guy sitting on my porch, saying, get off my lawn. You know I feel. that. That's something that they've been. Missing is a commitment to care about the world around them. And the ability and willingness to do something about it. And I think that was part of what. Read found so exciting because I. Find it exciting. You know again. I'm just put my own spin on it as being a guy of the of the same age group. But, I haven't seen this for fifty years. And to see young people, and it's not just young people. Let's be clear about that. It's all age groups, but to me. It's very very very cool to see me so many young people choosing to make this something that they want to stand up about and do something about it. It says a lot about the generation. Always a pleasure to be joined by the Great Clint Eastwood on the air. Head pride editorship show. That was funny. is we thought after fifty years? Seeing a super bowl would be cool, but I think that's eye. Opening that you say after fifty years. It's cool for this world Lee thing to be happening and and where in another. I think part of history that. I I'm not trying to be a cynic. I I want to see what happens after this, but it really does feel. Like it, it is different. needs to have that payoff and Eerie talked about that. Patrick Mahomes talked about that and Matthew talks about that. If you WANNA, hear their comments in full. Please go back to our last podcast posted from the podium. I encourage you to do so. This is I think an episode that you really don't. Want to mess on this episode. We'll go through some of those quotes that I found to be critical. As we move forward in our second segment, we'll continue with some chiefs news. Update you on the chiefs off season, and then in segment three we'll wrap up with the chiefs, top homegrown talent, and my favorite chief's thing of the week we talked about Andy Reid my question to read this week in your. If you listen to the last podcast was. Are you have Roger Goodell? Finally? Admitting the League was wrong. Read Spin in the League for thirty years. How does the League come out of this better? Admitted that they were wrong before now no! I think Roger a stud. Right there I. mean that's a move. That's a hard thing to do to say I was wrong. How many of us have a hard time saying that and listen? Time can do that to right, so we've all been in that position where things change, and it's changing right now. How great is at? Every generations changed in some way to get us to this point. Now we get the put. Put it down and end it. And Like I. said I'm big on this, so it makes the NFL better. It's GonNa make our country better is, is we? We live in a great place man. We are so lucky to be here. My guys told me that every day. They know that. And now they get to make it better. They do if you take that and you take what we do at team in what we talk about all the time is. How can we become better than we were before now you might have to take a step back to be greater to take a step four right so that's what these guys believing and they and their. You're seeing it now. You're seeing everything that we see every day and and and why? We still fired up the talk, you guys. And deal with Y'all got to get over that prejudice when you guys. That's that's, but that's how we that's how we feel we're. we see this and it's so exciting man. It keeps by said it keeps. Me Young so I appreciate. You hear right there Andy Reid voice, just reaching an octave level that you don't hear I'm. Just very subdued he I think usually is very. Thoughtful about what he gives to the media and I I compared it only to after the Super Bowl. When there's nothing left to hide, there's no more games to play after the Super Bowl that you had something similar to what we got the other day, just a really raw version. Of Andy Reid, and and you could hear how proud he is of his players and what I love about Patrick Mahomes, entire and Matthew's involvement in this thing is just what I said about it feeling different. They're taking action. They want to promote voter registration in the area. It seems like Clark Cons President Mark Donovan Andy Reid are all behind this and here was tired. Matthew talking a little bit more about that. You know could sit here all day and. Talk about a lot of different things right and and most of those topics are very sensitive to have been very tough conversations, and I think voter registration isn't wonder. Lose conversations, I think impacts. Everybody I think everybody. Should you know be apart? like a mentioned. You know if people could really you know even God like myself. that and more guys like me. We can make cool if we can make that trendy thing than you know were really we're really changing the future, really setting these kids up for great shooter. Louis allow these chairs to you know access to more opportunities you know offering these kids as occasion and more resources than thank the way to do that is to put people in office that are going to do that and one of the one of them of most important banks to vote, and so a lot of folk don't think that's cool and Maybe maybe we could make that. Maybe we can make that a cool thing again. So you go tired Matthew probably accidentally running into make voting cool again but it. I think makes a Lotta sense there, and and do you know exactly what I mean I think a lot of people are out there wondering, what can they do registering the vote and keeping track of one elections are and educating yourselves on who can potentially make things better will be a huge first step and I think it's been good for both Patrick mahomes entire and Matthew to recognize that and mahomes particular emphasized local elections. and. This is the the forgotten thing about the way our democracy works. There's a saying among politicians that all politics is local and we get ourselves worked up about. Who the president is and who the majority leader is, and who's in control of the Senate who control the House? But most political issues start at home. At the school board at the City Council. Those kinds of offices and we don't as Americans tend to pay enough attention to those issues, so I appreciate that. Patrick, mahomes understands that. And that tyronn Matthew understands that that it's mostly about. Changing your own communities. In a way that? And getting the people to do the jobs you want them to do. And it starts with I. Think watching the news too. I know it's boring. I never was a guy who watch the news and I finally in the past year or two made sure that I'm just keeping myself updated on what's going on in your area and I'm biased here. I Love forty-one Action News and the job that they do I think they do a tremendous tremendous job of not only keeping you updated, but also presenting it in a way that is also entertaining. It's not always going to be bright. They covered the protest. Protest really well. If it bleeds, it leads that still of course exists in our world, but you leave I think at least in my opinion forty-one telecast, and you are well informed about what's going on in your area, so not only with this emphasis, okay to vote, but make an educated vote, do your best to find out okay, who can change things in a positive manner, and I think by paying attention to these things both on a national and a local level. You can start to maybe take those steps to change the world. World or also seeing the NFL starting to take steps over a ten year period yesterday. They announced they'll be donating. Two hundred fifty million dollars to this cause and I think more than the monetary amount which you could argue with the NFL. It could be even more than that. Maybe they'll be other efforts as well, but ten years is a long time, so not only. Is it just going to be over the next month to show a good face in front of the media? This is something that they want to devote a lot. Lot of time and effort to over the next decade, and so I think that spoke volumes to me. You're seeing where the NFL just today said that June thirteenth the end of slavery that will be a holiday that takes place next Friday that's now a company holiday for Vox media as well so you're starting to Steve these little things, these little signs I think it just takes now continuation of some of this stuff and really community, involvement and community, participation and community attention four, some of these things to begin to be accomplished. Yeah I. This is different than what we saw four years ago. I know the question on everybody's mind when this all started among the NFL players. was. Are there going to be players kneeling this fall? And I've been thinking about it quite a bit, and I'm not sure there will be. I think the players may understand. That would Colin Kaepernick tried to do didn't work because his method distracted from his cause, and I think NFL players are. Conscious of that and I think that they're going to try to avoid doing things that will allow that distraction to occur again. So I would not be a bit surprised if we don't see any of that, that will see players doing things like mahomes and marriage. You're doing. Trying to find. Issues that we can all agree on. To help bring some positive change to the situation I. Respectfully, of course, disagree I I definitely I know you do. You'll see players kneeling and and. I'll give you an example I mean I recently had a conversation with someone who I love a family member and. They're upset about the manner in which folks are kneeling and my question. Was Okay. What would have caught your attention? And their answer to me was well. Colin Kaepernick would have donated money and I said. Did you know that he'd donated money? And also I'll give an example. He donated suits to young men of color so that they would have a better chance to win a job in job interviews and you know my loved ones said now I didn't know about that and I. said that's why they're kneeling. Because they have your attention, and so I just think especially given, the gravity drew brees. Turn I think you'll see a return to that. I don't think every player will do that. That, they'll be trying to have some efforts outside of what would be a peaceful protest in order to get their message across remains to be seen of Patrick Mahomes plans to peacefully protest. That was the question I asked him, and he answered back to me. It's not about necessarily who kneels, but more so the right to kneel, which is I, think in a small way a manner to see how things play out here to your point. John Maybe things do change as we get closer to September. We won't see games for a while we'll talk about. There's been a cut to preseason game, so we may not. See this as soon as we thought that we would, and I think that's the grand message right there by Mahomes. He's right. It's not about who peacefully protest. Not Missing the message and will be really intriguing I. Think you're right to see how this thing plays out. Mahomes himself put a nice bow on where he is on all of this toward the end of his press conference, it was kind of a accumulation of seen all of this happening in in wanted to stop and wanted us to find a better way of preventing this these instances the. The happen, and it's not one of them was more significant than the other. It was just off of it happening and then me feeling like enough is enough of we gotTA. We gotta do something about this, and I was blessed to have this platform. Why not use it and I feel like I've I've got no got not enough. I know I'm still young I've learned a lot in. that was one of the things. Is I know I have this platform? I know everyone will agree with it, but I'm going to do my best to to to make the world a better place, and this is the right moment to do it. Patrick mahomes wants to be the best football player in the world. There's no doubt about that. What landed in this lap? Because of that drive is platform and you could get the sense from this press conference to me and I talked about it even before they spoke. Is this was a measure decision? He talked to a lot of people. He mentioned talking to his Godfather, Letroy Hawkins. The former pitcher has father. Father Clarkson Andy. Reid just this whole group of people I'm sure. The agency Leigh Steinberg. Show me the money. He talked to all of these people and made what was a conscious decision to say all right I truly want to be a part of this because I know my presence here will make a difference and you've seen that in the days following. Yeah, and you know again. We disagree on this. But because he did that. Is why he chose very carefully not to make about kneeling. skilfully deflected your question there. I have to say and say when he said you know this isn't about who's participating and WHO's not. It's about the the the thing. We're trying to get your attention towards. and. Because mahomes talked to so many people. He had the opportunity to get some ideas and possibly from people who knew more about it than he did. And could give him council on the best way to approach it. I think that's what's going to happen. Among all the league's players right between now and September it, and let's not forget. We have a little ways to go here. You know three months could be a long time for players to figure out what it is. They want to do the way they want to approach this. To. Get the message out there without having. It turned into something else altogether. Up So I I understand your point the point you made the you know because of the way they did it because it. Gotten People's faces and upset some people. They got the attention that they wanted. But. I think that in some ways. That attention. Turned out to be a problem, too, so we'll see. Right and the feeling I got from a homes is that the jury is still out I don't think he's decided whether he's going to nealer or not, and he wants to see things. Play out, and I can't blame him for that I just. Being a journalist again I know it's a question that a lot of Kansas City chiefs fans have whether we agree or don't agree Ryo. That was my thought and trying to present it in a matter that was respectful. I think he gave a good enough answer for May I. Know a lot of people wanNA know definitively. What is he going to do or not for me? I just? You may be right. Maybe there's some discussion on for there to be zero players kneeling peacefully. Protesting this fall for me feels like a stretch, but again you're right there there is. A lot of time here, so we wrapped up that one thing I I would plead you to do is to go back and listen to. Not Us Yep the raw unedited comments make your own judgments. That is your right as a fan I. always encourage get as much information as possible, and that is served up you right there from the podium podcast coming up next on the Arrowhead Pride Editors. Show will update you on the chiefs off season. WHERE DOES TRAINING CAMP STAND LAWSUIT? Talk about? Why have the chiefs not signed? Any of their draft picks? That's next on the AP. Editors show. Back here on the Arrowhead Pride Editors show the chiefs offseason continues, and we have an update officially. No in-person mini camps this offseason. This seemed like every day became more and more the direction that the league was going in, but it was confirmed by NFL networks Tom Perez Cerro there have been some dates being floated out. ESPN reports that the chiefs and the Houston Texans don't forget. They play an opening night so there before everybody else. Their report date for Training Camp Is July twenty fifth else who plays three days later? We'll be July twenty eighth, and then with that earlier report date by a few days to less preseason games, and that allows teams to sort. Sort of start to acclimate from contacts is my loose understanding of this that way they can adjust their bodies and I. Don't know if even the NFL exactly knows what they're doing. Because this is such a unique situation and unpredictable situation, but that's where we stand right now. No minicamp and age ally twenty-fifth report date. It was interesting that they I talked about perhaps moving the beginning of training camp up. We had a report to that effect last week and then this week. They're talking about canceling a couple of preseason games which I know, a lot of fans would prefer. Most fans aren't too crazy about preseason games anyway. Especially, those are paying for tickets for them. But both of those would accomplish the same thing. To give teams a little bit more time to work their players from the virtual off-season into some kind of a reasonable facsimile of an. Of a practice. Let's be honest though. Corona virus or not, it should be two preseason games forever. You get preseason game three and four and you're like. What are we doing here? This is a waste of a lot of people's time and money and so I hope this is one of those changes that just stays forever I. Don't think you need additional preseason games. Oh, you get no argument from me on that. Andy Reid interestingly enough mentioned. He doesn't know where training camp will be I've been saying this. I think the jury is still out on this from everything that I've gathered I'll give you my gut percentage here. I think you're out about sixty to seventy percent. This happens in Kansas. City thirty percent and Saint Show, but I still believe that it is that much I really think that the League is still trying to figure it out. I probably would assume in this scenario, the league starting to feel well if we allow one. One team. Should we be allowing all teams to choose and opening up would be that Pandora's box. That's why I still think. The chiefs having it in Kansas City I've been asked before. Okay, does this mean it'll be in Kansas City forever? No, I think as soon as the chiefs are allowed to happen in Saint Show, they will again because Andy Loves Saint Joe for a lot of reasons, but right now that's where we stand I think the jury is still out on where the chiefs ended up having training camp. Yeah the thing is that it's not really fairness issue. Those because teams always had the ability to go elsewhere. So that isn't really part of the equation as far as the NFL is concerned I think if they the only reason I can see to prevent it from happening is that it necessarily exposes? The team, the players the coaches, the staff. You know that whole unit. To more people, you can't go to a remote location and not exposure yourself. To more people than you would if you were doing it in your facility. I think that's the NFL just thinking about what's the way that we can minimize the possibility. Of. Covert infections among each team. The chiefs would tell you from what I I believe is happening here that they'd be better off and be in contact with less people at a quarantined saint show training camp than they would keeping their guys in Kansas City when right now you can really go out anywhere. I mean you could bring the team to Saint Joe. And like you're seeing with the NBA bubble and say now now you're staying on campus and you're saying just contact with your fellow players and coaches. You'll see your family's in a month and keep them there and the. Thought that you get from Corona virus experts, and there's a wide variety of them. That's why it's hard to pay attention as to what exactly to do is as time goes on, you'll know more about it like anything, so a month passes. Maybe things are in a little bit better place I'm a little worried here as we're starting at different reports of new waves and things like that, if by the time we get to the end of training camp. Is this thing GonNa be prevalent again. Who knows we day by day with this thing? We're taking the Eric Berry approach. We are so day by day with this day. We don't know how it's going to play out, and we just have to pay attention to the updates, and that's how we're handling it. As we run, this shaves website I I know the NFL chiefs are probably taking it day by day as well Ravens head coach John Harbaugh just last night said that it'd be humanly impossible. Impossible to have training camp under the current restrictions, so there's a lot of conversations going on. I think that is something that we can say with absolute certainty John Do. You have any more comments on this, or are you good to to move on here? Well I. I loved her buzz comment yesterday. It's rare that you see NFL head coach. Make a statement that strong about a policy. The League is considering you know. They tend to tread pretty carefully. But in this particular case harbaugh just he went there. If there's one head coach, do it. It's the guy who's going for it on fourth down right ready to give Patrick mahomes forty yards. Fales. Want to move on to something. You explored this week. John why haven't the chiefs signed? Any of their draft picks? You have some more insight on us. Well I think that most people assume that it's because they don't have the cap space to do it, and that's just not true. It takes like bread beach told us recently the about generally speaking three to five million dollars to sign your draft guys, but the more important figure is the impact it is. On your cap at the moment that they're signed because when players. Are drafted they automatically go on the salary cabinet, NFL minimum salary, and under top fifty one rules. They don't count because there's plenty of other players down there who make that salary at that that low salary. Including all of your undrafted free agents, and they just don't count against the CAP. At this point, they will only count against the CAP. When they are signed to their contracts. And then their impact on the cap will be their contract less the contract they replace. On the top fifty one contracts. And in a couple of cases, the late round players, they will actually make less. Than the NFL salary the NFL minimum salary for an undrafted player. So they will actually have a positive effect on the CAP. It works out to like about one point eight million dollars in cap in. When the new players are signed, and the chiefs have that much. But, I find it amusing when I see people say well, the chiefs just don't have earned sign their players. Well Yeah. They do right now. It may be possible that at the final cut down. The chiefs might have to release a player or two to keep their rookies that they wanna keep under a cap. Because at that point, all fifty three players will count against the CAP. But the issue right now is not the salary cap. The issue right now is that they haven't been able to bring the players in the facility to get physicals, and that is a big part of the process that we don't really think about. Is that you draft one of these players you're counting on them being physically able to play, and if they come in the first time, and they meet with your team doctrine. The Guy says on out this Guy Gameplay. You're not going to sign that contract. That only happens rarely. But a team isn't going to tie up a draft, pick and A. On a player that. Isn't able to play that season. Just not going to happen. I think it was kind of telling this off season I can't pinpoint the day but bread beach. At one point we were on with them. Ask Him questions probably around the draft talking to bread beach and we asked him about the salary cap, and he kind of laughed. The constant panic among chiefs fans, I see this. But their love things you could do. The cap granted a little bit different, or you're talking about Patrick Mahomes and Chris Jones. By the way Monday will be one month until the Chris Jones deadline. Happy one month tell the chiefs fans. So, there's a lot you could do, and and so what I would say is don't panic yet. We'll see how it plays out once we get to that cut down date and have an understanding of where it's at then you may, as we've talked about on episodes before. Enter a situation where you're not in a position to sign some free agents throughout the season. That would be a bummer, because we know how big those row players played last year, and the chiefs, Super Bowl run, but right now I think it's not time to panic yet. There may be a time of the future just. You're okay. Everyone can breathe I. Think at this point. What, talk about tire and Matthew before we move onto the next segment. He's doing this really cool thing. I WanNa make you aware up with bleacher report and a series called. The landlord was so guys I'm Tower Matthew also known as the landlord. They called me the landlord because I own the field and I take care of Kingdom right now. My social responsibility goals much. Thank you. Thank you. Nobody ever done anything like this. Landlord coming soon to bleacher report this week on bleacher reports twitter account. You can find it five minute episodes of and Matthew. Contacting people from his hometown of new. And, saying, we're GONNA pay your rent with all the struggles throughout the corona virus and the sponsor that Zell ends up matching another month of rent so two months rent get paid for all these people in need. It's a video call with Matthew and the recipient and really a cool effort by matthew something that was pretty warm hearted. He is the landlord and he's paying rant I. Wish my landlord would do the same probably not going to happen, but I've been enjoying the episodes and I. Encourage you to check them out. Who would have predicted during the Senate? Fell off season that tyrod matthew would be his best Ed McMahon impression showing up on people's doorsteps with the big check from Matthew Clearinghouse. Second time. We're talking about Matthew this episode and has nothing to do with his play on the field, and he's a really good player on the field so Kudos to. He does a nice job. He's doing a nice job with this team. Not only bringing guys that are really really strong players on the field, but the best of guys seemingly off-the-field, we come back on the era, had pride editors show? We'll talk about the chiefs top home grown player, entering twenty twenty and the best chiefs thing I heard all week. That's next stay with us. Back here on the Arrowhead. Pride editor show wrapping up this Friday June twelve edition as you start your weekend. Hope you're enjoying your time in Kansas City or elsewhere. Let's talk about the chiefs best homegrown player this week John you actually covered this in a blog for US NFL dot com covered Greg Rosenthal, and he mentioned McColl Hardman as the chiefs top homegrown player entering twenty twenty. What was your reaction to this? Well, a lot of people were confused by this. You know most people would immediately pick Patrick Mahomes, but with Rosenthal was looking for was a young player. Who could make a significant difference the most significant difference by? Their game to the next level and also be a homegrown player. And McColl Hartman is a good choice I mean he certainly is someone if he took his game to another level. Who could make a significant impact for the chiefs offense not may not be entirely up to him. You know the problem from Hartman is going to be getting targets right? Even if he improves as a receiver, he may not get the opportunity to seriously impact the chiefs production. So my theory was. In order to get the biggest. Turn. From step up for a second year, player or players, some are some of the ones Rosenthal picked were third and fourth year players. You're going to want to have a player on the side of the ball. That needs the most improvement so for me I would be looking at the defense, and maybe a player like. Colin, Saunders, or a player like Rashad, Fenton or a player like ten. You! Or Bruin speak. You know these are all guys that we're watching very carefully because we went to see them, take that next step and be real contributors on the defense, and if any one of those players takes a step up, it could make a big difference for the chiefs defense. Yeah couple takes on this for me. We've entered a period in Kansas. City where questions just wouldn't be fun if you don't say Patrick Mahomes is not involved in this so a lot of times when I'm asking fans on twitter, so you can't pick mahomes, so let's just take him out of this conversation. He is obviously the best chief homegrown player. With no restrictions to me, you take out mahomes. I would pick Travis Kelsey since in the mix for the greatest tight end of all time, sure following the rules and following your recommendations, John I think Tanto passenger was the pick, and it is because he took a huge step for me last year now he can take an even bigger step and even greater step next year, especially with the fact, that Emmanuel Octa is no longer here and Alex Okeafor even when he was healthy, was not necessarily the player we saw in training camp and see Spagnolo really likes him, so I know he's going to get those opportunities. He did mention Brooklyn speaks who. Actually like him as a person on the field, he's dead to me, which means he's going to have to have a resurrection in training camp. If I'm going to even consider him for this, that would be a nice story, but that's all it is. He's in that Tanno Paseo last year territory where we are saying he's going to be cut so ken like Paseo. Paseo did is Bro. There can he have a resurrection in training camp and get on our radars again? I don't see that happening. I think there's a very small chance of that happening I hope it does rocky start to his career for speaks high hopes least high hopes, really really low production a had a suspension while he's already on injured reserve, which is. Not a good look, I I wish the best and I'm eager to see what he brings to the table. If I'm him. You have to look at this training. camp is your last possible chance. You gotta come on tiptop shape. You GotTa do whatever the. Coaching staff tells you. You have to show that you deserve spot because right now based upon what you've put on table ready. You don't and so. We'll see how that plays out. What a move on finally to the best chief thing I heard all week, and we know that that is Andy Reed's words. His entire press conference. I've done a few times. I encourage you to go listen to it. Andy Reid was the best chief thing I heard all week, but taking him out of it for something a little bit lighter. Max crosby on bleacher reports. Adam left coach show. What are you doing? Max I. HE talks about Tyreek Hill, which is nice and then. You'll see where this thing gifts. tyreek hill. He's A. He's a different breed. The dude is so fast and quick. It's just like a second. Not I've never seen anything like it so whether he's coming in motion. You know you have to. You have to pay attention. Don't even a quite still slow on the defense now if he's lineup. Why'd you can't let got have out some type of over. That's optimistic case, so you know having a guy like that. That is such A. Game Changer in just a factor you always have to pay attention to address than most often a lot of ways, so I looked in your ten sacks. I saw you got drew lock. I saw you got a bunch of other guys. How sweet would your first sack of mahomes be because we haven't gotten one yet? Yeah you know I. I've faust goes a few times And it does me off. You know pretty much. Every. Every second that game over both times now Blah, Blah Blah whatever, but you know he's. He's a difference aflame to. He's one of those guys it's just like. He backpedals. He'll throw the ball weird angles like it's not like a regular quarterback, so yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to sack. needs to happen. This is definitely going to happen, so I just. To give him a message for you. Are you. Can do whatever you want I don't care. How does such? Coming No We took Andy Reid out of it and I'm still going to bring up Andy Reid Andy. Reid does such a good job. Of Not Providing Bulletin Board materially hates Y Y. Give players extra motivation. So here you have a raiders defensive end young guy able to ten sacks last year up and coming Max crosby. Struggle with Patrick. Mahomes. You really do Europe ten nothing and blink of an IRA down twenty-eight, eight ten, and here you go onto left Gauche show. And CRANFORD. Adam served it up for really did he did well. Let's admit that, but why say you're definitely going to get a sack? Just say he's a good young player. You look forward to playing him and you hope you can get one. Take that advice. There's no reason to give the best player in the world. More motivation, a whoop, your ass, which is what you just did. You just did it. It's over. It's out there. He's going to see. These players read the website as much as you guys pretend you don't i. know some of you probably even less than shield you read it. You'RE GONNA. See it. Why did you do it, Max? Why did you do best chiefs thing? I heard all week, but on the other hand. Don't you love to see that on the player that Brash self confidence. I mean I. Don't like to see it on. The raiders player of course, but. You WanNa see. That's the kind of player you want on your team. One Who's brimming with self confidence and wants to get out there and make the plays and do those things, so it's hard for me to criticize him for it, but you're exactly right because it could blow up in your face. Well now you just set yourself up for disaster now you have to get the sack right because if you get through two games as an Oakland Raider, probably even the one game we know our chiefs fans. We know our community. They'll be looking up that twitter handle. We'll have. What are you doing savings? Save yourself the trouble, my friend. By the way I thought of reiter instantly when you said someone that you wish had confidence, and that's Eric Johnson. Forget about that. To wait in good way to and let's turn the page. What a week!

They use advanced technology to help you reduce risks and achieve long-term results so invest in a doctor. That's invested in you and your long term health at go forward dot com that's go forward dot com And away we go into another edition of the arrowhead pride editor show. I'm the chief of our head. Pride dot com. Pete sweeney once again joined by my esteemed. Deputy editor john dixon john. Now that training camp has tied of gone. How are you feeling. I'm i'm ready for this. Yeah i'm ready for things to move on. I'm tired of being in the doldrums. Tired of all those things. It's time we got things moving. And we're just i know i think there are so many hypotheticals that go into the kansas city chiefs off season. And they're all building to finally get to this week and the thing. I like about this week is we are finally going to have some concrete vigils some concrete information to discuss and evaluate. I put my fifty three man roster out. We'll be able to change that have multiple versions this year. Don't forget last year. We only had the one version because we didn't really get a look at this team change and so now it'll change week by week. We're taking a step towards normalcy after the corona virus pandemic and. I'm happy about that before we get into the news which we will in a second. I want to tell you this. Please rate and review this podcast. If you enjoy we will take each review into account. I read each and every one of them. Five stars preferable. But look. that's up to you. This is america. This is your right greatest how you wish but please leave us a rating and review on apple. I tunes after we go through the news later. Today in this podcast. We'll go through our day. One thing we'll be looking at for training camp we come to you on the eve of what will be the first full team training camp practice so john and i have each come up with three things will be looking for on day one but first let's talk about the weekend rookies quarterbacks injured players descended upon saint joseph. And the thing that stuck out to me about this where the idea that. There were three veterans in camp. Cornerback de'andre baker safety one thornhill and defensive end taco charlton all took part in at least two training camp practices. One thornhill did end up getting monday off. Because he is the greater veteran. Probably of the three here in this camp. But i don't know if we necessarily expected this. And i thought this was a good thing john. Yeah and they talked about it. That way Thornhill said specifically. He appreciated the opportunity to get up there and get some early work in Without a whole lot of pressure these are pretty light practices. It's not like there was a lot of full-contact going on mostly seven on seven drills right and i think he appreciated the opportunity to do something light before yes to put the pads on on wednesday and make sure that he's okay He said over and over this was a mental thing for him that it was just about feeling comfortable with the knee last year and he got better at it as the year went along. But you know once. He's back in the off season. You your mind can play tricks on you. I think i just wanted to be sure everything was cool. Yeah i think of the three right. Because you have the andre baker who broke his femur in that week seventeen game taco. Charleston was in the middle of the year with the fractured ankle. These were injuries suffered last year. What was different about one. Thornhill is there was no official unofficial. Re injury lashed year. This is just a player you had that torn l. in week seventeen of twenty nineteen and he decided okay. I want to still continue to get additional wraps before the other veterans get to town here was one thornhill who was quite candid with us over the weekend Honestly i had to play it off a little bit. I wasn't one hundred percent but it was just more about the mental. Like i tell myself okay. It's gonna hurt but you gotta play through it. So that's why when the end of the season game you something make them more as just because it's more mental and i just push must have that mental block and add started better so we'll talk about one thornhill in the second but did you hear that in the background out of golf cart which means we are finally recording back in person. We're not in an office. Where not on zoo. We're back in person the elements around us. You would think maybe hey they wouldn't drive. The golf cart doesn't matter. I'm happy about the golf cart. That's a good thing because we're finally normalising as we lead into what we expect to be. One hundred percent capacity to arrowhead stadium back to thornhill though candidate right john quite candid and honest and saying look. There were some limitations with his injury last year but he confirmed to us. I'm one hundred percent now. And that is a huge boost to the defense seventeen full weeks if he can stay healthy seventeen four weeks of the wand thornhill not that we saw maybe at the beginning of last year but that rookie season want thornhill. That was starting to push that pro bowl level. Yeah and you know what's funny about. This is that we kinda had indications. This was going to be the case iron. Matthew talked about it quite a bit last season about You know how his injuries had taken a couple of years to get where he felt fully comfortable with him and he spoke about that specifically with regard to thornhill. We all just kind of forgot about it and So i'm glad that we. And then when when andy reid said on friday that thornhill was injured. Were like what. What who and Maybe we should have been a little more prepared for this. But i think most of us weren't that That we weren't going to see thornhill a one hundred percent right from the beginning. But i'm glad that he spoke about it because we hadn't had much directly from him ryan. I'm glad that he was straight with us. That was great and that he's gonna be fine. It's it's exciting to to to think about thornhill. Being all the way back to things that that jumped out of the two aspects. Jump out our. I expect now that he feels okay on his feels one hundred percent quicker to the tackle when a player is in front of him. And then i think there's going to be a quicker jump with him on potential interceptions definitely think that you see an uptick in interceptions thornhill this season so long as he continues to stay healthy all right john. Next piece of news the chiefs signed long snapper released a wide receiver. You jumped on this for us yesterday. What happened well. It was weird The chiefs That sheaves announced that that's the last sixteen months just in general. Describe it weird then. She's announced that they had Waved a player Chris pinky the slippery fox the slippery fox and signed a a long snapper and alex oak. Afford of course we knew oak afford been signed last week that we got word that that was happening but sometimes we get that information before. It's actually officially transmitted the nfl. They wait until they have a player that they can release to make room so you know. They announce three transactions. And they're still at ninety one player. So what's going on here. Well he didn't announce immediately that they had put james winchester the teams Long snapper on the reserve cova list. So we've found out about that after they announced the other transactions and now it all makes sense. The team is it ninety players. They've got this drew scott fella Who was originally from kansas state. Yeah came here. By way of the raiders and cowboys practice squads over the last couple of years. The chiefs actually gave him a workout A couple of years ago and so they've got him here for training camp and You know after all winchester's going to be a free agent after this season and he's going to be thirty three years old when next season begins not this season but next season. So it's good that they've got a guy to look at I feel bad. That winchester is on the list right now but These are the realities of the nfl. Right now. I think you're scott's probably fill in for winchester all the positions of the fifty three. I think this is the one you worry about. The least winchester's been really good for you chief so it it does continue to be worth monitoring the rules for vaccinated players which we believe winchester to be right now. He needs to negative tests. Twenty four hours apart to return. And so we'll see whenever that comes through a we know that the chiefs are practicing on wednesday. I think probably the earliest you see. Winchester would be friday but this is completely unknown. We don't know we'll keep you updated at arrowhead pride dot com for now. Your long snappers young kid at a kansas state. The wildcats drew scott some other transactions to know. I said it already. But chris the fox pinkie which is one of my favorite nicknames that we have had in kansas city in a while he left practice over the weekend and appears he's to injured to continue. He was injured waived after getting hurt at. She's training camp or money watts who we found out john and you may want to talk a little bit about this. He has been added to the p p. We found out from andy reid and this was new news to us because he had been absent from offseason programming and that he had a fractured foot. Yeah we didn't know anything about this. And and of course when. The voluntary portion of the off season program is going on in a player is absent. Everybody assumes that he's doing. So because i want to be there you know we have this this This common reaction that well. He's just sitting it out because he's a veteran and doesn't nikki needs to be there. Well you know. The possibility could be that. He's injured and this turned out to be the case with watts. So i'm sure there's some folks who were saying bad things about him. You'd like to take that back now that they know he was injured. All this time but we just didn't know and so now He's on the the pup and We'll see if he gets better before the season begins and if he doesn't then we'll miss him for the first six weeks maybe more. Here's the deal with the a. As soon as watson practices at camp. He has to come off if he remains on the pup. P fifty three cutdown is out for the first six weeks of the season but who knows is on the era of pup and so he could be back before we know at some time during training camp. We actually don't know the timetable. Exactly on this thing. Other news to know maliki herring. Who if you're really are die. Hard with the chiefs about tim. Ward darius harris and how the chiefs signed them as undrafted free agents believe now two years ago this is essentially going to be a redshirt year for the defensive. Emily carrying ended up tearing his acl during senior bowl week which know about from the draft process. So he's on the non football injury list. Well you might ask. He was injured playing football. Why is he on the nfl. By while it didn't happen with the kansas city chiefs so it's still technically considered non football and so he's on that list he won't wants to fifty three man. Roster comes out be counting against roster. I imagine he's going to be put on. What is the injured reserve at that point. And then we'll see about him for the two thousand twenty two season let's get into the next update and this is the biggest update but it's one we repeated a number of times. Here's patrick mahomes. On his now i think there will be no restrictions. I've been training running throwing Doing everything that i i usually do. And what was so good about going not as new and those things are tested there. I realized i was good. And then when i got back with body started training in the off season with him I was able to do what i normally would do. talking about. Bobby stroup his personal trainer who was based at a tyler texas and we recently found out. We'll be moving to kansas city. You gotta go where the golden goose is and the man with the golden turf. Joe patrick mahomes. He says he's all right. I actually had the opportunity to watch him over the weekend at rookie quarterback camp and there were times when he looked like he was midseason. Patrick i just i. It's amazing to watch where he flicks his wrist and never gets old or entering the fifth training camp patrick moms where he flicks his wrist and the ball just sales out of his hands. And you don't understand how that is happening but that's the version of patrick mahomes. I saw and we expect them to be a full. Go for training camp. And yet andy. Reid may try to limit but you can only do so much to protect patrick from himself as they say and i think i think he's completely to go still wrapping my head around that fifth year of training camp for patrick mahomes. That's it's hard for me to even believe it's we've been through four seasons with the guy. Now i just i guess just because it started off with the the red shirt season essentially where he played a year. That's tough to remember. But yeah i remember that we were at training camp during that time and alex was going to be the starter. He always was and we would see him. You'll be like oh my goodness this is going to be something to say. Yeah he ended up having as a starter. The best possible start you could ever have to. Nfl career so far. And it's just another reason we're talking about the fifth year here enjoy it. I know it. It's gonna go by fast just like life so every moment that you have an opportunity to watch this kid who again it was had the greatest start in. Nfl history enjoyed because it may go by faster than you realize. And we have the biggest new year. Congratulations are owed to a great career to a horse. We know and love war paint. John you cover this our pride dot com warpaint will be taken out of the mix starting in the twenty twenty one season. Yeah it was almost a throw away in Mark donovan's remarks on monday That he announced that they were going to retire. Warpaint from Team activities and something. They've been thinking about for a while. Just another of the things that chiefs have done over a period of time to try and take the pressure off them. about the name cheesy rice and The chiefs continue as donovan explained on monday. Continue to work with native american groups down of a working group. They've had for almost a decade now and And find ways to get common ground with them so they don't have to eventually give the name of the team or the stadium but some of these other things will fall by the wayside and this is one of them. You may be wondering if you're out of the loop or anything of why this is coming up again. I think for a long time. The kansas city chiefs were in the back burner because there were other teams in front of them where they just were worse. The washington football team. We know their old name. That has since been changed and very recently. The cleveland indians changed their name. To the cleveland guardians. So now the chiefs are in the forefront of having any semblance of native ties. Here's what mark donovan said. We have a really good american indian. Working group provides us real good guidance feedback and perspective on this issue. Obviously we knew about the cleveland decision a year plus ago so we knew that was going to happen but it doesn't really change our approach. We're going to continue to create opportunities to educate and create awareness and work exactly as we have for the past eight years now with the working group i saw some comments on arrowhead pride dot com and elsewhere that some people didn't even realize that were paint was still a thing. I saw other people complaining. That war paint had bit their mother and during a visit and so for a lot of reasons probably good to stay goodbye to war pain and we know that the chiefs are continuing to work again extensively with these native american groups in the area to make sure that they're doing the right things. We saw them ban headdresses and native american garb last year. I think we all agree that it's going in the right direction. We'll see as time goes on again another thing the monitor. If they will end up keeping their name right now it feels like they're okay for the twenty twenty one season but this is an ever changing thing. We'll see where right well. And and i i think they're doing the right thing by talking to the people to whom it matters right you know I think a lot of the outrage. It's being manufactured about the name is coming from people who really don't have any reason to be outraged and they wanted to be outraged of them. Have others but the chiefs are talking to the people to whom it matters. And i think there's hardly a better way to do it. I just i just think that's the right approach. Yeah we'll continue to keep you updated as the story develops over the years. I think that's going to be more than yearly to me than something. That'll have daily or monthly updates. Something like that. Of course at arrowhead pride dot com when we come back. We're gonna get into the football of this thing. We are twenty four hours or so maybe less by the time. You're listening to this of the chiefs first full team training camp practice of the twenty twenty one season. The points to watch coming up on the arrowhead. Pride editors show support for this episode comes from forward. Most people go to the doctor for the one offs like rashes and colds. And your annual flu shot but doctors can do more. That's why you need forward. Their doctors go beyond every care in an effort to catch top killers like cancer and heart disease early. They use advanced technology to help you reduce risks and achieve long-term results so invest in a doctor. That's invested in you and your long health and go forward dot com.

April two thousand twenty one c five g. device coverage and access details at team although dot com back here on the arrowhead pride editor show. Pete sweeney john dixon. We are excited. That training camp has finally commenced of veterans arrived to training camp in saint joseph last night. Anthony hitchens mccoll harmon orlando brown. Junior spoke to the media. You can get that on from the podium. Right here. On the arrowhead pride podcast network. We also covered that with written write ups on arrowhead. Pride dot com. We know that the first chiefs practice their first full team practices less than twenty four hours away. And we're going to go through three points each that we're watching on day one of training camp and i'll start with this and to me. This is the most obvious one. This has been the most talked-about subject of the chiefs off-season. How will the offensive line. Look the top team offensive line. Look with patrick. Mahomes goo are going to be the players. I know we know about orlando brown junior. I know we know about joe tuning. I think i'm about eighty five. Ninety on crete humphry at center. Yeah wide open at right guard to start tomorrow and the right tackle. Expect to be mike. Remers will trey. Smith start at right guard. I tend to think on day. One laurent juvenile. Tardif will be in there. What do you think john. I think the chiefs will give the the returning starter the opportunity to win the job. Especially because kyle longs out of the metric right right and it might have been different long had been in there and had played very well And was healthy at this point but since he isn't i think the returning starter gets the opportunity to show what he's capable of but i also think that they're going to give trey smith plenty of opportunities over the course of training camp It'll just be interesting to see how they approach it on day one. I think we're all agreed that that'll be a very important thing to watch a lot of times when they're trying to figure out the offensive line there'll be a split of reps as practice goes on and this is something that will be watching and going back to when mitch moore started at the center position when he came to the chiefs. I remember kush probably got the first three or four days. Getting the first crack before there was a switch. So i'm wondering if the rondini tardiff goes until about saturday ish and then we see trey smith taking most of those first team reps all right. John what is your first day one thing to watch at cheese training camps. How often do we see. Chris jones playing on the edge. I mean this is another thing that we've been talking about constantly over the off season. You want me to bring my counter. My pitch count counter training camp. So i can keep dragging the little hand thing. The jets the button on thickly quickly. Maybe we need to do that. you know. Last year he. He played about thirty percent of the snaps on the edge. According to the data that pro football focus keeps And so it's not really gonna be that much of a change for him to play more often on the edge but it all could still be smokescreen. It could be the chiefs saying this stuff. So the teams have to prepare for Looks that they might not necessarily see. I think you've mentioned before. Pete that You know we may just see this as something that occurs against specific Alignment specific players. And i think there's a good chance of that but it'll still be interesting to watch and i'm sure a lot of people will devote Inc and electrons to it not to mention airtime talking about how often a chris jones is on the edge. Starting tomorrow yeah. I think it says more about the interior that maybe even the edge position for the chiefs. Because yeah you just have some solid players along the interior jarran reed changes the game. Andy reid who usually does not even care about the media has been begging us at press conferences to talk about sharon reed that acquisition and you pair him with derek noddy and i think by keeping chris jones solely as a tackle. You gotta take one of those guys off the field and gonna take off. Read who i believe was seven or eight million dollars that he signed for derek. Nadi is a salad player so to keep the best four right. We always talk about the best five on the offensive line. Do you want the best. Four and chris jones has to play elsewhere. I tend to agree. I think that it's going to be more of a hybrid type of deal. But that's the best part right because you look at that from the safety position with tyrod matthew the fact that he is such a hybrid player where he plays in the box. You can play dp can light up as a cornerback eakin blitz. You don't know where. Chris jones is gonna be rotating all over the line that's gonna make it more difficult unopposed. Offense is i think ten plus sacks or chris jones and ten is my floor just because there's going to be so many times when he's my just be lost because you have guys like january derek. Nadi on the field. So i'm looking forward toward that. Certainly all right my next point. John are frank clark entire in matthew on the field for what it's worth ninety nine percent. Sure that they will be andy. Reid said he expected. Frank clark to be there when veterans arrived tired. Matthew is the ultimate team player. But they're reasons why maybe they wouldn't be right. We know about the off. The field situation. When frank clark we know about tire and matthew and the contract situation he is now we believe in saint joseph without a contract extension going into the final year of his deal. We know that he had a desire davin. A contract extension. It does not seem at least at this point that they've been able to come up with a new long term agreement. There is still time before the regular season begins but he should be on the field we think tomorrow entering the final year of his deal which i never thought would be a possibility john. Yeah i agree I think we both thought that this will get done before. Training camp I think we both think that it's a negotiation. That's ongoing. i think we both think they'll get it done before the season begins. But i wanna change my prediction right. Okay let's just here on the fun because it looks like he's got a practice with with no contract done. I still think it gets done before week one. But i don't know at this point you don't really know what's going on. Well would be particularly in the end of the world on our next podcast and if necessary will change our predictions as events dictate but Yeah i think. I think they're going to get a deal done before the season begins But and i think he'll be and playing the way we expect him to regardless of whether the deal gets done i do too and men you know a message that sheaves you're playing with fire but matthew and not having him locked up because i just feel like he is going to not that he doesn't give max effort before but isn't he going to be more motivated than ever to be the defensive player of the year like if he gets to week one job without a contract in place. You know where. I'm going to maybe not our friends but to the raiders. Home las vegas. Because i'm going to be placing a one hundred dollar wager on tire and matthew to become the defensive player of the year prior to the season. So we'll see yeah. I think that. I think it gets to be a better bet. At that point. I agree It's still i think a long shot but But but that's why it would fun. A good bet to me is ten. Tend to go to defensive. Ends and defensive tackles at this point but it certainly don't sign tire matthew deal. Couldn't you just see ten interceptions in that little box on. Espn dot com. By the end of the i could and then all of a sudden. He's we'll say frank. Clark i wanna go back to your original point john and you made it while this was in the beginning stages and i gotta give you credit for that we might be on chapter one or two of what is like a ten to fifteen chapter book when it comes to his off. Field situation of frank clark. Meaning doesn't seem like the. Nfl is going to take action right now until the legal process plays out now will see. It's a felony to our knowledge that could include jail time which certainly changes the game of bat. Were to play out but we may not get any type of league discipline for a long time. Maybe even the of next year when he has a different uniform on. And i think that's a good point to remember. It just seems like when. Andy reid spoke about this. It was business as usual. And i do expect frank clark to be on the field as a team takes practice on wednesday. Yeah i mean. He's a free man right now. it's not like he's sitting in a jail cell in california or anything. so there's there's no real reason for him not to report to camp. He's not being restrained in any way. And i think that if there was going to be any kind of league discipline or team discipline it would have happened before now. Yeah and otherwise. I think it's just wait and see And see how the legal situation plays out before either the team or the league does anything and As you say that could be a year from now before we get any kind of resolution in terms of what kind of suspension he might face if any at all so Yeah i think we're gonna see him on the field Starting on wednesday agreed all right. Let's go to your next question for day. One of chief train again. How often do we see clyde edwards. Allaire catching passes now. He caught some passes last year. It's it's interesting to me that we look at the numbers from last year actually caught quite a few passes compared to some chiefs running backs who had preceded him but he didn't have big production as a receiving target and it seems to be because he was almost always used as an outlet receiver there weren't like wheel routes where he was the main guy for the play. And so i think this question comes down to are the chiefs planning to put some plays in the playbook that are specifically designed to make edwardsville layer of passing target. So it's not just. How often do we see him. Catching passes but how often do we see him doing that. Because that was the intent of the play And of course our our expectations here Are dating back to the beginning of the season when we didn't know they were going to blow up the offensive line and put five new guys on there And it may be that. The chiefs are intending to using the same amount. They did before and just hope they can get more out of him in the running game with this new offensive line so that will be one of the things. We'll be watching during training camp. Starting tomorrow is how often is. Edwards layer getting the ball as a receiver. Right three points on this one. And you're gonna hear things that i've repeated throughout throughout the off season. But that's just where we're at because we have not had a full-time practice right. But i think so. Much of a edwards allaire. That was disappointing in twenty twenty came from the crazy expectations. Eleven hundred yards. Thirteen games is a ridiculous number for a rookie. Didn't have an off season to learn the offense so mad. I think the sky's dilemma for them this year. They've already been talking about how they wanna expand him in the passing game. I think he's about more lanes to run through with this bolstered offensive line. I think that number is going to be higher than eleven hundred. I think you're gonna be. Gmc territory like. I predicted last off season. I'm predicting it again. Whatever greg lewis is. The running backs coach is the former wide receivers coach a former nfl. Wide receiver. I think that was an intentional move. That had to happen. Well because deland mccullough moved on so there was a big nc at the running back position. Why not put greg lewis there who can help quite original air in the passing game and then the final thing one thing that raised my eyebrows and this is something i haven't really discussed in detail. One thing that raised my eyebrows. This off season was the fact that edwards allaire talked about being out wide. We talk about the variety and the hybrid heart of tarn matthews game. And and now chris jones potentially clydes allaire. You put him on the field with another running back. Dour williams's suddenly the back and you have clyde edwards layer on the line. Doesn't he suddenly draw your attention. What does that do for your attention with a guy. Like noah gray who might also be on the field cornell pal tyreek hill and travis kelsey. Suddenly you have the defense looking at clyde edwards allaire. Who's lining up out. Why it three or four times a game. Good luck what are you. Who are you gonna defend when you have that type of situation so yeah. I think that's a great one john. I'm glad that you came up with it. That's going to be a huge part of what. I'll be watching a training camp. Not only how many times has he catching passes where they pudding net and because this seems a little bit different than what we saw with him last year. All right my next point. How are the three cornerbacks lining up in the nickel. I think we know a couple of things here. We know. Trevor ward will be one of the outside positions we know jerry sneed will be on the field who will be the other player. And where is jerry sneed in these. Nickel looks because i think in the base. I think it's going to be snead and ward on the outside when you have three cornerbacks on the field is snead's still shifting in or does that go to a mike accused how does rashad fenton fitted. How does the andre baker who is now healthy fitted. We're finally going to get our first signs that we can report on in training camp starting tomorrow. Yeah this is one of the most interesting Position battles that we're going to see in this training camp. There's not much doubt about that And i don't think the chiefs have any idea where it's gonna go I go back to what spagnolo said the last time we talked to him where he said You know we'll see which guy Rises to the top. That is if a guy rises to the top certain that they have a player who will rise up to the top of that group and he left. Open the possibility that snead could go back and forth between Being outside corner in the slot corner and then so we could see somebody like Well any of these players including rashad fenton becoming outside. Cornerback in those situations so yeah this is going to be very interesting to see how it plays out and And again. I think that the chiefs are going to try and keep this card hidden as much as they can. Because there's one thing spagnolo likes to do it's to trip people up with different formations and And and give them looks at. They're not anticipating so. I think that we'll get some idea how it's gonna play out right but not the final idea. No i think that's legitimate. And and steve spagnolo of the three regular coaches. We get to talk to you. Andy reid. Eric vietnamese steve spagnolo espagnol is the most forthcoming with legit information white. Typically i mean there are occasions where he'll say i can't tell you that but more often than not he'll give us something and you're right during the offseason. He was very clear about the idea. Okay we're still working through this. This is what we're using the offseason for and so like that she's figuring out who's going to be a witch offensive line position. This could still be something. They're working on and something to watch on day. One n beyond because who's in what position may change as the days of camp go on leading into would be week one. The preseason game. We'll be another time to watch. Because that's when you really know we are are trying out these guys in these positions it all starts on on day one tomorrow all right john. Let's go to your final point to watch. On day one of kansas city chiefs full-time practice is another one. That's pretty obvious is how are they to use. How are they going to use Willy gay and nick bolton In the second level of the defense Wants to see willy. Gay out there Getting more snaps than he did last year. He's a gifted athlete. apparently didn't absorbed the defense quite as well as he might have If he'd been in a different kind of season one where there was a full off season program that full training camp so we didn't get to see much last year we're hopeful that will Get off their other opportunities to see him on the field this year with an improved off season situation and then of course nick bolton Who seems to have been drafted as the heir. Apparent to anthony hitchens. So how do they use these players How does that relate to what's going to happen after twenty twenty one. These are all important questions that were going to be watching very carefully for for clues To to inform what we think was gonna happen. Anthony hitchens is in a rather interesting situation this year where he was going to be tasked with training his replacement to save the team. Eight or so million dollars. That's just reality of it and matt derek. A friend of our site. Anthony hitchens on the zoom last night about the idea of having to prove to the coaching staff and team that he needs to be a part of this team in twenty twenty two moving forward and hitchens essentially said he just needs to prove it to himself. He has personal goals that he doesn't share with anyone but himself and he's going to accomplish that he's going to try to play to the best of his ability. He's done things like losing four or five pounds entering training camp. We wrote that up at our dot com. Where he realizes okay you know. There's eleven personnel three wide receivers on the field a lot of time. He's gonna be chasing guys like tyree. Kill and travis kelsey and noah gray and cornell powell during the training camp session and he wants to be a little bit more fleet of foot. He wants to be quicker to the ball. He's doing everything in his power to prove okay. You don't want to move on from me. And we know that steve spagnolo loves them. We know that the new linebackers coach. Ken fl joel. Who called him. High speed internet loves anthony. Hitchens and anthony hitchens too so important and getting everyone lined up. He is so in tune with steve spagnolo. When the defense. I think there is a scenario. Where the chiefs say man hitches. You played so well this year and you know we don't. We're not sure about nick. Bolton i think we still have some questions about willie gay granted and have the the off season last year. Where maybe the chiefs do end up keeping hitch for the final season. But what. I think is really admirable about the player is. He's training his replacement. And in bolton. And i don't expect he holds a sliver back and that's wild to think about in the sense that like you're basically doing your best job to give the team and opportunity to cut you next year. And but but that's just the player in man that he is and that's why i think the team and coaching staff loves hitching. So much well on the team. I think is loves him a lot. And you touched on that. And i think that's an under appreciated aspect of of the situation. Here's how much The chiefs value him specifically spagnolo because Spagnolo's defense is one that requires an intelligent guy. You want smart guys playing in that kind of defense because it adjusts on the fly. It's not just a question of the ball snapped and you go find the ball and tackle the guy. that's not the way it's designed. That's not the way it's run. You need smart people doing it. You need smart people leading it. And i think that That's a thing that's under appreciated by some vans how much they value hitchens and So i i thought his remarks yesterday very interesting in that respect he. He wants to show that he's still has a place on this team and You know we might not see nick bolton starting in that position after Twenty twenty one I think they're thinking about the long term there as they should be and But we it's i think it's distinctly possible. We could see hitchens for another year so wednesday as a season ticket holder. Day at training camp. If you're going up per day one. These are the things to watch. We just set offensive line alignment. How much do we see. Chris jones on the edge. We're frank clark entire and matthew. How often is clyde edwards. Allaire catching passes. How are the three cornerbacks lining up in the nickel. And how do willie gay. And nick bolton get used in this defense those will be most pertinent to us if you see me at training camp. Say hello. I'll be wearing a mask. There are very strict rules at training camp. But i would love to talk to you guys. I know that the full first team practice opens up on thursday john coming up on the arrowhead. Pride podcast network. It's another addition of the arrowhead drive on wednesday.

Don't Start Over w/ Brent Loyd

"Into kelly's for me honestly was one now trying to like don. I'm not trying to be is one of the difficult things you could actually doing. Okay good i think yose went through it with like a broken hip or something like i mean. A lot of people go through with injuries. And i had some stress fractures that i knew i had some other problems. That new a habit. I just know there's a metric you get if you don't make it through the league or most of hell week. You have to start all the way back over. Oh nobody wants to do that. As your donor. Shopping out is not ringing. The bell is not an obstacle. You're limping at note. You raise the bell. That's not even the equation. As far as i'm concerned i. Do you ever seen anybody do that. Anybody thinks about been that's wreaking. We'll go now some rabbit holes later. You're listening to the he fluids podcast in. We're having candidate and actionable conversations about your health relationships business and ministry and now here's your host. The second chance coach firm. In michael david huey welcome to another session of the heath phones podcast. Of course a nother rainy day here in central florida. I'm actually looking out. My guest brent. Now were just chatting catching up a little bit. Because we haven't had a chance to talk in like two years because he's been serving our country and i respect that a love that i just love being able to catch up with people And recently it's it's so funny I met i met my guest today. Brennan a mastermind that we were in together. My friend nicholas barely mastermind. And i can't believe it's been like almost three years ago that we that we met then and i remember i remember like yesterday and it's so funny My friend mark donovan. And i were talking about this not too long ago nicholas kind of likes to do some challenges during the masterminds and It's funny. I saw daniel lim doing a A plank challenge And it brought back to memory of being the mastermind and And nicholas in the middle of. I had been struggling with some elbow problems. I wasn't going to try to challenge brent anyway but everybody was like oh come on. Let's do it and they all jumped up and mark my friend mark. We decided not to do it right. Because we knew there wasn't anybody was gonna be brick. And so so brent drops down the floor and he's underneath the table k. And the table has a draping over it right and every once in a while. They were they were. They were doing stiff arm. Planks right and every once in a while brentwood stick his head out underneath the draping to look and see if anybody had was still staying up right and it was hilarious like so fricking funny and we have kind of inside joke. We always say hurry up right when we were training when i went down in in Being part of the navy seals we did a beach navy seals training and it wasn't anything like brand through with how weak and the things that he's done but it was four hours of brandt and joost like hurry up. Your your. your team is waiting for you. Oh yeah funny things that we now laugh about because it was like hurry up. And then we and then me and my friend frankie. We just stole that. And so we use it all the time and i will take it every once in a hurry up. You know your team is waiting for you. You know and so it was funny. And then and then in that internet stiff arm plank challenge daniel lim was like the last person to try to be brent and brent stuck his head out and he said daniel. You probably should quit. Because i'm not going to give up right me and my friend mark. We're laughing right like we're just branch. Just he's he goes back underneath the table and at out and he's like daniel. Have you quit yet. And it's just hilarious. And and i think nicholas started trying to push it by counting off or push ups. I think they add on. He started happening to shift from the. Yeah yes the this streak plank lose a little bit of his team. Yeah and of course annual sweating like crazy and brinson. He was in his mind was there. I knew his mind was there. And i wasn't going to be able to break them there. You know what i mean. He was in the zone but see the thing that brent took was his bringeth state underneath the table. So daniel you could. Brent was like in and everybody was looking in brentwood. Still he'd stick his head out from underneath the table and he just had his sit as almost like he was pushing the table up he was so stiff like he wanted to try to make it a little harder and it was just funny because you now when we were talking before we got on earlier is that we were saying. And what we were saying was is that You know I always good to be able to kind of watch. How people's mindset is when it comes to those types of things and what. I learned even in that four days of training. Because i knew that the next time we met at the mastermind and britain doesn't even knows because he was gone serving in the seals and and and britain know this but i went and got myself in the best possible shape that i could get in because i knew i was an athlete. I at that time when when we were doing it before i had been in a car accident had twelve herniated disc in my neck and back and i was told and i i beat it like right now. I just turned two years old. I'm in the best shape of my life I actually did thirty miles on my bike today. Did a ninety minute workout afterwards. So i've been. I've been getting to one. I love it. That jude fires me up so much. And that's why. I just wanna say something because i'm resonating off of it so hard when i met you. I was in the shape of my life mentally physically emotionally. Whatever you wanna call it. I was just. I was a little bundle of toxicity and over last year like it all came to a head last year one of the worst years of my life that i can really remember right but through all that was how i started getting back healthy right and how i started just fighting bore me and my space in my mental health and where i mind needs. You know what i mean. That might my physical health and bro. I can fit into clothes. That i couldn't do since that i got two thousand eight. Let me say something about lightweight. I'm sorry but i'm like. I no let me let me say something about that. Oh so so that shows you his mindset so even like a seal if you know what they go through when they go through hell week. It's like you you either make it through or tap out right you either make it through your tap out and it was funny when we were doing that training down on the beach like there was people throwing up and and people you know there was people that didn't make it through right and so the next year we ran a mansion and i knew yose was gonna take us through brutal right and so i prepared myself. There was thirty guys that were in the house. And of course i was the second oldest person right and i said look. I'm going to be in the top five every day out of all these thirty guys. I said i don't care what it takes. The first morning we go out we're doing this circuit training and llosa's these ten exercises written on the board. And how we're gonna do it and it's going to go into circuit and we're gonna you know. And i knew i knew i couldn't chase. And jimmy coleman twenty three years old twenty five years old you know. I was old enough to be. Their father was twice as old as them. And i knew. I probably wasn't going to beat joost and i knew i probably wasn't going to be nicholas but i said i can beat the rest of them right and both days i was i was fifth right on on and then the second best. I'm going to try to beat. Nicolas right that's awesome and so that was awesome. And so i. I i knew allen jr that you'd already prepared for it you'd already prepared for you. It exceeded the metric. You'd even set so you're like what am i going to take down next. Yes yeah and so i it. Because brantley arted brent. Brandt is the founder of the mountain. Movers mindset and k. And what i like about. That is brandt the day. When you heard brent say that he was a physically unable to do what he thought he was capable of doing because he was out of shape. And i mean. And and i can just look at now because you know i can see what he looks like. Now he looks fitter and healthier and and and it's really starts with the mindset of that and so i just want to welcome to the heat phones. Podcast my friend brent. Lloyd thank you for joining me today. My brother awesome to be here. Awesome to be here awesome awesome. We get to catch up. Yeah right and it's funny. We were catching back up. And i think we probably could have caught back up for the whole time that we were going to do this. But i figure we should get this end because it's really funny. I've had a lot of these that we've been doing i've had Some just amazing people on the podcast and is really funny I mentioned my friend. Frankie before And you know since brent's been gone you know Frankie really dedicated himself to god And got married right and medicine met his wife a man. They moved to san diego just a couple months back. Money tied him down exactly so break down that that man yeah close. Yeah and we were just talking about actually going to have him in june now on the podcasts. In a couple of weeks. And frankie great. Frankly got a job. Yeah he got a job was startup. company Making probably about a quarter of a million dollars a year doing sales because he's gangster at sales end. It allows his wife to kind of do what she does an influence her and they just have a god centered. Marriage which i. I really like so brand since you and i just want to. I'd just want to say thank you for serving our country the way you have An and you know there are some things that we won't talk about because we're not allowed to talk about him. But i've seen things that brent has went through in his life that shows his dedication to his country shows his dedication to serving. And i mean anytime you go away for a couple of years and it's only supposed to be short period of time that you're going away you know that that calling upon your life so why don't you do us a favor. Tell us your story. Let people hear kind of what you've through what your journey has looked like we. I kind of feel like. I know you a fairly well but i would really like people today in the short period that we spend together to just get to know who you are where you came from things that you've done how you served our country. What the seals was like. It's really funny connected brent. With a friend of mine. Tim tim douglas. Who's going to have brett on. His podcast also has been interviewing a lot of people in the navy seal rem And he's actually doing a retreat with several of them did one last week and he's doing another another one this week but i dislike it that we have the access to have relationships with what i would call. Heroes heroes brandt and to have them kick are you know what's that one day for four hours. I didn't really like him in at that time. I have that effect on buddy was but he was really funny and an and in an after that obviously we you know when we went back and we were swimming and doing the funny things that we were doing. I mean i remember. I remember joost getting everybody up next day. Mako people jump in the pool. And i think the poll was like fifty degrees or something like that and it was just crazy but so bryant tell us a little bit about your story in about where you are and things that you're doing heroin and yeah i mean one thing i would like to say if it weren't for people like joost that cadillac back me up a little bit. I probably wouldn't get very many second invites so thanks for having me on your show. I'm really excited to be here. So i'm going to try to keep this. Reader's digest version. I'm not really sure our time frames right. No you're good. You get good time plenty of time. What's an hour long cool. And i'm pretty new to this whole realm so a little bit about myself. I'll just press it with. I'm one of those people that just kind of like see something that they wanna do and then just dives in in figures it out for a long time. I beat myself up over that and said that it caused so many problems so many mistakes and i let myself getting some negative self talk. Well i've been flipping the script on a lot of that. That's just how i operate. So i'm gonna try to give myself some grace where i need to and just accept the fact that sometimes i'm spontaneous and i don't have all the information but i just go. This is what i'm doing you mentioned mountain. Movers mindset. i'm rebranding. It and relaunching. But where i come from. Personal history is best. I can reader's digest small town southern illinois cornyn cows Just kind of grew up on all those warbucks war histories. Both my grandparents were drafted and one served in the korean war. One served in vietnam war in a very interesting capacity. We didn't see combat but it was still pretty interesting Long story short. None of my immediate family members was in the military but I just had draw had this. Just since a duty obligation responsibility whatever you wanna call it and as i grew and developed and kind of had that passion i refined how i wanted to serve But of course. I wanted to honor some of my commitments to god and i went on a season my life and i gave it to him and i entered a period of service center collection as well and just all that so foundation What ended up happening was i didn't get. I was eligible to join the navy period. Whenever i had this dream of being in special operations or whatever so i had to get some waivers Process eventually i couldn't join as as a contract for special operations. I had to choose a different job in maybe get there eventually. Long story short. I finally with bat is in all kinds of other things. I shouldn't have even been in there. Had a whole my heart. One kid shouldn't have even been in the navy. I made it through somehow and then in fourteen years. I did seven deployments with them. So i'm still trying to catch up all of that so that's where i am right now but this slowdown that i've been afforded unintentionally. I didn't expect to be unemployed. After seven deployments you know and so as all of my job options that i applied for and set up started falling away in every bit of safety net that i had just crumbled around me. I just kind of had to ask myself some serious questions. And what alternately decided was while. i've done seven deployments. why don't i do eight. But this one's for me. If i was going to deploy myself with my experiences on the world what would i do. How'd i do it. And for what in state. And so. Since i'm in a process of self healing in all that that's where i want to start so i wanna start with healing and healing is much things around me as i can and i don't know what pace i have to go at because i've never tried to do this before so i'm getting started with the rebrand. I'm watching a podcast. I know nothing about podcasting. Luckily i've made enough friends. That have gotten me kind of started so again i'm loving it. It was something my dove right in. And i'm gonna we're gonna to have a lot of fun dude man. We're gonna have a lot of fun. We're going to do a lot of good and i'm super excited. So awesome awesome limousine gas. I know that much. No now shaping up is coming together as we speak so thank you for entertaining. The on your podcast. As i'm growing into that fired up let me ask you. Let me ask the question. Why the seals why the seals will. I grew up with the the frogman books from vietnam. You know devils vases. And for whatever reason the seal stories appealed to me the most. Of course. I always always want to go deeper sight. Read some of these other government agencies. The different lights startup like special operations units and those were super cool too. But i didn't really understand how all that worked as you know a kid. I just knew it was interesting. I guess but i grew up in southern illinois. No ocean no real water. Corn cows woods. And so i did boy scouts. I did some young rain programs and stuff but that's before it had young boy scouts. And that's when i started like doing like the orienteering and all that stuff like well i feel comfortable on the land like yeah. I could go green berets army rangers. Maybe the air force stuff or do they have special operations. What what. I mean like going down these rabbit holes in my head and i was like well. What would challenge me the most. I don't even know if i asked the swim test to just get started with those guys. So yeah why. Don't i do that one. So that's what. I chose that one buick swimmer swimmer before i did when i was a little kid. I think my parents took me to the pool. The have me half swim lessons just that they didn't have to babysit me for an hour. But that was when i was like a little tyke. Toddler age Actually a really good buddy from high school. He's helping me out. Start my podcast. I lives a little bit down. 'cause i'm staying with my parents. Were a little while. I get all this sorted out. But he lives right down the road he was a big swimmer in his was a big swimmer. And they competed. I think his mom was a college competition swimmer and he just competed like in the ymca swim league. Will he took me to the rec center early in the morning in just taught me the strobes coached me and then that got me to pass my test. And that's kind of how we started getting back to spinning. I guess awesome. That's awesome so. Let me ask you this so one of the big things because it was really funny. The i talked about the four hours that we did this. You know frigging pushups and stiff arm planks in the sand running and lunges and swimming and locking arms together right down. The beats headphones was going right. Yeah yeah so so. I've always been fascinated by that. And i know i know we can go into detail and if you if you save at it stuff out and stuff like that but but tell me your experience that you went through because i've always been fascinated. Heard joost talk about it so much like like if you give you give joseph couple beers. He'll talk to you about it for like who up three days right up. What were some of your experiences and things that you went through when you went through. Okay can i put a pin in that. Yeah remind me of that. I want to relate this to the experience where we met. Okay perfect in then will die back in there. Okay so whenever. I was asked by nicholas just to open up his mastermind and all he wanted me to do is do a seal fitness workout on the beach. Or whatever and i'm like you have any idea the legal issues with just that alone. Like and i'm like okay. The military is going to come and kill me. And i'm like okay so now. What's your demographic like who's in your group like. Are we talking. Like i know you own a you do a personal coaching business. These are like top athletes or own. No and i'm like. How long am i supposed to do this for three hours gore hours and i'm like how do i not kill any of them so that was a personal challenge for me. I wrote it on my little board that him trying to get me to challenge each and every one of you guys to where you guys each and every one of you almost wanted to quit or thought about quitting. Yeah that was a tough nut to crack. But i got back than i did it. So y'all are welcome under percent. He did do it. I mean people with serious health issues. Medications all the way to like frankie's as jason jimmy coleman and has got it was. It was hot. Chris man but it was a good challenge. Good challenge challenge accepted. I had fun with it. And i'm glad i met some really awesome. People are now personal challenges. That was the question you asked me. I believe as i go through the training or just to get to where i needed to be No surprise the water. Obviously water was. I barely passed the swims love. How how many days is it. It's like four days right. Oh are you talking about just halley. Yeah i was talking about the whole seal trading by be hell week base for me. Do halloween for me. Honestly was one not trying to like. I'm not trying much is one of the least difficult things you could actually do in butter. Okay good it's it's i think i think joost went through with like a broken hip or something like i mean. How do you do a lot of people go through with injuries. And i had some stress fractures that i knew i had some other problems. That knew i have. I know there's a metric if you get if you don't make it through or through most of hell week you have to start all the way back over. No nobody wants to do that. You're you're shopping. Out is not ringing. The bell is not an obscene. No you're limping note. You raise the bell. That's not even in the equation. As far as i'm concerned i. Do you ever seen anybody do that. Anybody drink horse wreaking we'll go down some rabbit holes like that later but you get across that finish line however you crawl across it but you get there because you don't want to have to go all the way back there so of course you go through with broken hips or whatever so can't believe that blows my mind but yeah but i mean. That's the thing about. Halloween though is honestly if you just keep going and put one foot in front of the other and put out and you're not like curbing other people by being a burden at times somebody else is going to have to carry your weight and some evolution. Because it's designed that way but you don't wanna be that guy that every single evolution or mostly evolutions. People are carrying your weight. See what. I'm saying absolutely you have to carry carry each other but you also have to perform you have to have that team mentality but if you keep going forward and you have that mindset. Were okay. We're going to work together. And i'm going to go all my effort whenever you need help. And then whenever i get to that spot gave you a little nudge. Yeah so that's kind of a member. I it's funny because you told us you showed us a video one time. He said no recording. Because you know you can't record it and then go and show and you. You showed us one of your operations where you were where. I was actually scared for you. I am actually tell this story brent to you know i was glad that you said. Hey you guys can't record. This phone's out reports you know he's and i remember you. Were you were in a in a in a dinghy boat with a bunch of other seals. And you told me. I ask you a question and i said so. How much are those packs that you have on you. Said they weigh about ninety pounds. I was like ninety pounds. Like you have your body weight at ninety pound. Pack on your back. And the the scenario was brent climbing up this ladder. Right and the dinghy boat is kind of floating away and he's just hanging and i said well what happens if you fall off. He said you die. I might as well watch what happens. He said usually somebody on our team does the same thing they go over after you right you know and i was like wow. Why really like that really. That really gave me a lot of more even more respect for what you guys go through because you know in in in the i mean. The boat started. The dinghy boat came back because it was floating away and then it came back. Thank god if anything what happen we would of went back down in the boat but if there was there was a little bit of time in there where he was hanging on and banging up against the side of this of this frigging big tank right and i was like bullshit. He's not only is he gonna be fall off the freaking bang his body up against his fricken ten or twenty on anchor right and so just the just the just the the tresser appearance and the mindset in the things that and that's why i've always said i even accidents brent when we were in a breakout session and i said hey look when you come back you can teach people how to have a better mindset and of course now you know. He's going to be going into the process of teaching people. Because i teach a lot of my high level plants. And i just i just recently radically raise my prices because people coaching with me for a year and saying i've got my value in the first three months and i was like wow and then you know when they sign up they say. Are you going to keep the same crisis. You're gonna raise them up. And i raised up and they don't flash that right and so two to your benefit the mindset that you had going through that lifestyle so so let me ask this question when you think about the word accountability k. What does that mean to you being in the seals being. What does accountability means you count. Ability to me is very multifaceted. Good i mean first and foremost i'm on this whole like boundaries kick in this whole like a cross s improvement in self-improvement kick. And i'm just. I'm doing this crazy thing right now and it's fun and you guys just keep staying tuned because it's going to be really exciting I got to be accountable to myself right. How do i stay accountable to myself. What are those metrics. What are those tools for infrastructure environments that enable that right and then i got to be accountable is some type of value or values or character traits right to god yes like right so if that's value a relationship with god higher power right okay. What am i cal. They're i'm accountable to being guided by him. Being used by him being an instrument for good feet okay so accountable self accountable to values higher powers right so we can get into lots of different ideologies and branches from there but we're talking accountability and my perspective on accountability. So how are we doing better. Good how are we doing. Whatever so basically deployment. Brent is i i. I'm fighting against toxicity. That is where. I wanna start whenever i start talking about healing. If that's how. I can fight something. I want to buy toxicity. And that's what. I am going personally so now that we've moved from self and god and we're moving into other relationships families parents children spouses communities work environment accountability on all those levels related to value honesty accountability. Haven't myself on. Even where i'm at and what i want or need before i can start. S- could honest or accountable anywhere else. So this is a personal thing that i've been growing through and i'm still going through. I don't have. I wouldn't say the answers but i've gotten like my low warning order. I believe my marching orders from god on. Hey this is what you need to do this deployment eight go and so this is what we're doing. That's awesome that's why that allocated relationship with the sea. So i keep some metrics on me or around me to remind myself some of those humility pieces in the gratitude. And i could not be here with this conditioner this power by hat and gone through the craziness. That michael was just describing. You know what's funny be is you you. You can't see it but you gave me a sticker before you left in. It just finally wore off. My computer asked three years. And let me tell you what. I've learned stuff about getting swag. Now that's benefit. You remember the sticker that you gave me you remember the stick right. You didn't know what the difference between matt finish. you've final. Any of that was when i was ordering stickers. I was just trying to cool things for my friends whenever we know what it did. And alan publicly. Say this to you is it it. You can't see it but it was right here on my computer on my laptop. Probably right way this whole time you were gone a time you were gone so obviously to wear and tear. It warned it. Just kinda peeled off because it was it wasn't like the The dell symbol. That still on over here right. That's that's how. I randomly found a few stickers. Check it out. So i'm trying to like. I said i'm trying to give myself some good anchors and productivity things because my brain's all scramble and it's hard for me to stay focused course big challenge but i know the sticker because i found like that's it the alpha sticker. That's it and i had to cut it down though because the edges were like all ground from like dirt being stuck in there from where you know what i mean so i bought a few extra ones but guess what the is are all going to be fun little things. 'cause like i said we're we're going to have a lot of on with that allowed me to pray for you the whole entire time you go. I appreciate that. I need so many prayers in like the support network in the network that i've had my entire life through my parents and my family's and everybody i've met. Hey don if you see this part it's kind of Brett kinda just faded out. I don't have kinda you faded. Are you still there. You faded out your frozen now. Hope you'll come back still there. Hello okay there you are there we go. You're back no. It's just so now we'll start back recording now through here. Okay i have a guy that and stuff. So i just had you know was talking a little bit about you. Know being able to pray for you while you were gone. I think it's great and you just said you know. Thank you for that. But i i just wanna say thank you for You know just remembering those things i just. It's amazing that that that that stayed on there for almost three years. Yeah i and i. And i actually kept it on kept trying to press it down and i got to the point to where it just didn't want to stay on their union more. But you'll just have to send me some new ones when you get these new ones absolutely. Hey i got a couple of things for you right there. So when i get those big gratitude flows where it's really coming from my heart like there's been a trend that the technology starts failing course. That's how that's how the devil works. He doesn't want to. He doesn't want us to Get our message out in agree. Yeah i wanted to call that out here as we move forward or salish that as an anchor point in true. Because i was wanting to say keep praying pray warrior prayer warriors because doing works and while i might not have seen it in those moments in time now that i have the perspective and frame to look back i have seen the answer to your prayers in unique situations that i've been overseas. That's awesome you know and you know what that just brings a memory back as we as we finish up here next ten minutes or so I i i just wanna share listeners. You know it's funny. My dad spoke death over his life. all his life he said you know i'm just going to hell with the rest of his friends and i would constantly pray for him and believe his salvation and and and and doubt little over thirteen years ago on My wife woke up and she said your dad's gonna get saved it's gonna come to know the lord and your prayers are going to be answered on tomorrow and literally that next day. My dad had a pass their come to the hospital. My dad was sepsis. He was in the hospital and my wife. Prophetically told me that. That was the day i was going to get saved and sure enough. The pastor said that he told me you know my my stepmother told me She said you're dad. Said he did not want to go to hell with his friends that he wanted to go to heaven with his son and so thirty thirty plus years of of praying and believing that my dad would come to an understanding That god had plans and purpose for him as came to pass. So thank you. For sharing that so brent. Let's let's let's share. That's finish up but this talk about some of the things that you have in place that you are getting ready to do and how people can connect with you so I know we've had some breaking up and it's still back and forth a little bit but hopefully you're still able to hear me and we can and we can make sure that this goes forth and i think i just lost you. I did all right. You back i am. I an get the devils aligarh so so let's just let's i'm going to restart back at him and say i'll just restart your brett and don can can edit so thank you so much for your transparency and what you said about you know. Faith is a substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen right as a shared with you about my dad. Just gonna go I wanna know now as we close up like some things that you are are in process of working on your rebranding. You're you're wanting to share a little bit with our listeners about your vision in your planes and things that you wanna do now that you have kind of. You're in a new season in your life. So talk about that awesome so one thing you share that about your dad really angers flat point home that we both wanted anger in. I'm all about establishing those reference points for myself and i do it verbally to to reinforce it more gratitude in knowing that those prayers are not in vain. So i'm saying that hard for me mostly for me. Maybe you whatever okay so now to answer your question on mine. New season well as result of deploying seven times in fourteen years. And you know kind of growing up through that whole process from being young bunk right out of high school nineteen to now thirty four. I did both really good on most things. But if you think kinda fell through the cracks you know what i mean but we're putting those things together but the pace of that lifestyle the the magnitude that you would have to perform at on a day to day basis. It doesn't come without a price tag and sometimes that's spills over long story short. I guess moving into my shameless plug. I had a bunch of jobs lined up. And i was expecting them all to start and i was will the savings that i had saved up on my last couple of plants to kind of be my emergency fund but i thought as walking straight into employment with a month of leaving between anyway pandemic happen. Praise the lord better head space. But it doesn't change the fact that i went through all my emergency on putting together this old pot gas in his old grand lodge all on credit in all on good faith so in the future what. I'm looking for affiliates. Some good affiliates to where we can get some cross promotion and branding in or in the short term. I'm gonna do a crowd. Funding donation based type structure tree. And i've got the framework doubt. So i'm also a might do some ask for as little as just doing like an online scavenger around. I'm trying to make it fun. I'm trying to create a digital playground with my brand. It's all about my story coming back from. Fourteen years of service seven deployments in that timeframe in the special operations community now unemployment number eight to heal and to help. Okay so i'm going to start some of it's going to be. Some messy story has not been for all audiences. I'm going to flag those okay so that any listeners can know that if you see some of these tags might be mature content only go pure mature enough to go down some weird rabbit holes. Don't know what they might be. Because i'm gonna be real okay to be. We gotta tackle some serious issues. Some serious one issues as not going to be pretty so red meat. A lot of grace okay. So let's just be real an upfront about that. But i'm it's going to be about kind of my story getting to know america as it's changed all around me. Well not me cartoon that. I'm creating a cartoon that i'm creating that's going to be the radio host. That's going to be some of me and some story me and some alliteration allegorical. Whatever a cartoon character whatever tune he's going to be the host there and he is going to be learning about america as i heal through some of my experiences in the background and promote the podcast and the good charities and businesses that have a similar message. But it's all going to be around. Be d who is trying to become a good distiller a whisky distiller. His dream is to one day. Be a master distiller. Any wants to start with bourbon because bourbon is the only true american exports spirit. I not laugh laugh. I'm not laughing at you. I'm laughing with you. Because i want wanted. My and i'm gonna do connection with with him. I have a new Is a is a believer. He's a strong man of god He owns a company cup macro missionaries. So and he's jacked up dude. His name is jesse dale and he is a bourbon connoisseur together to learn about bourbon to urban. But i don't know much about it the way. He is a genius when it comes to give me an attachment. Yeah and and so. I'll i'll do connection with you. Cool of a what that looks like and so so. Let's do this. Let's finish with this. Is there any if people wanna connect with you and want to get to know you and know more about you know more about what you're doing and in the process of how can people connect with you. Okay like i said i'm spontaneous. I dive right in. And i just kind of figure out as i go. I started our conversation with that. I don't know if we're recording or not an honest so well i just actually ordered some whiskey through a distiller way more than i actually needed because i thought i was going to get some work that i didn't end up getting and then i figured well how am i gonna pay for this order that i just ordered while podcast. Obviously do i know the first thing about podcasting. Do i listen gasoline. No some of them weird ones that you probably wouldn't even be interested in but that's all i know about. You're honest so funny. You brought that up rent because then you can convince is that i interviewed this guy couple weeks ago and he said that his new motta was that he had to be honked and he said he had to be.

181: The Grandest Tour stage 26: Waiting no more

"You're listening to the grand tour by the cycling podcast brought to you by Walker. Flexible loans bill for small businesses I W. OC. Dot Co Dot, U. K.. Should I'm with Lionel Bernie? And joining us once again. The oracle of cycling lizzy banks. Jala. Richton Lionel Lizzy. You've had a busy Lizzie. I have had a busy day. It wasn't planned at all but somehow. I find myself at Preston bus. Station. Ordinary People won't believe this. How did you? Find Yourself Pro Preston bus station. I can't quite explain it myself but you know I actually found myself having tap past lunch in Preston parking rest at bus station, which is really quite unbelievable and no it wasn't planned at all but I was traveling and. I've begun to get very very, very hungry. We couldn't find any good to eat, and then we were very close depressed, and so we fill Why not? Just Preston bus station see if we can find some lunch over the question why Butter Pie why toughest? I mean. Of course. But yeah well, that's the thing I I was googling was good to eat and Preston and then I google tap and the first thing that came up was a picture of chips number get so. We didn't go that never thought I would get in the spirit of the. And go to the very, highly rated top restaurant in. Preston for anyone listening to the shocking for the first time in wondering one earth is going on he coffee who going very well in DC. Pregnancy is was present buzzing with talk of Hugh Kerr on hobbies gay on it. You know what? When I was driving into Preston the traffic was rammed and I can only assume that it was because everybody was driving to the to the bus station. I didn't. I didn't see any hugh coffee flags or signs around Preston which was quite disappointing but Preston was quite busy, which is surprising thing is it's in. Lockdown but no that seemed to realize. Oh, well, I'm what will this is this is an escape from mold talk of lockdown as. We are refuge from that for everybody every anywhere who might be a finding their their. Freedoms are being restricted once again but. The wealth of goes on on the headlines Today Lionel with a mountain stage today and felt like an order pass before tomorrow. It. Did really didn't it yes. Stage eleven of the welter to Fowler Polaner. A modern classic in recent Vuelta History We've seen Alberta Condo in a few years ago. is arguably where Kristof room. Broke through at the Welte, in twenty eleven as well. Isn't it as Daniel explained last night and anyway no more waiting for Davidge, go due to win his scranton stage I think. That, we should retire that Pun. Now we should retire and never say again. Okay. Okay. Gert, I'm we had a showdown the climb between the Twenty fifteen toward eleven year winner mark. And the thousand sixteen we're not avid go do solar. Of course, already has a state winning this welter to his name but had no answer when go do opened up his sprint for the line, the finish and it was a really impressive state win for the Frenchman and also very well played by his team. If Dj who had got his teammate Bruno amid I into the break to be fair though they wasn't the only team that played the numbers game very well today because mortgage star had both solitaire and Nelson Olivera in the break and Sun web had the young riders that Ozzy Michael Store on young. British. Ride at Mark Donovan in there as well. It was actually Tim Wellens of Lotto Sudoku who kicked off right at the start of the stage, and though there was quite a bit to and fro before the break. Oh stablest. We had a strong group go clear with Amish I don't have in store olive at Wellens a Nicholas. Egg of trek in it before go. And the King of the mountains leaky or ma. Tango acrimony Lionel. Tonight. He's good. Isn't Nicholas. Walk Nick You. Jokes and we can have another dodge joke. He's a good egg and it was Gary Okay goodness. Goodness me I. Mean, that's St riot me that that really has. Anyway but the crucial thing was Sola bridged across to that group when the break was a couple of minutes up the road. So that strong ride from Solaire ticket across. The PELHAM letting him go which was also quite interesting. Surprisingly Tim Whelan. percent dropped but that was offset for the day really and Yamba visa while they had numbers all day in on the front of the Peleton and they kept a reasonably tight leash on the break without ever really looking like they had incentive to completely do the whole job and catch them. So it was decided on the final climb and it was really one and done wasn't at one series attack by Solaire. Go do with him and then we saw them sprint out for the line store and Donovan took very impressive third and fourth places for some Web Martin was fifth but he is extended his lead in. King. Of The Mountains Jersey apart quite considerable margin. Now, fifty points I think plays twenty four set cushions in second place behind that the race didn't really ignite. Did it. Perhaps. That was because of. Business of your strength I don't know. We'll see whether they were waiting for tomorrow Dan Martin Henrik Mash Richard Calapan premium chocolate all finished together, Hugh Carthy lost a few seconds seven to be precise. And so the top five is as you were, but Solaire has moved up to sixth two minutes forty four behind wrocklage tomorrow it's the angry route. One of the steepest climbs in world tour cycling and. Even down mortimer saying before the stars Taye stage that perhaps people would wait to see if they could make more of make more gaps open up on that climb rather than today, which was a quite a bit easier but the angry whites. Is. Interesting. Though isn't it? Because there aren't all that many opportunities left in this welter to to make time, and of course, everybody's looking to tomorrow and. The feared and revered anger ruined, they want to save their legs but really today tomorrow and then the time trial. On Tuesday, some of the any opportunities to make. To make big gaps on your rivals and I would not have raised the stage like that myself and I really think today was a great opportunity for you visit any trouble in and everybody else as well and I'm I'm I'm. A bit gutted that they didn't do that but they seem to have taken over the old team skies. Way of riding really haven't they wore the question was going to both wars. Are they making the same mistake? They made at the two-day Franz? Yeah I. Mean it's it's a second game at the moment and what they could have done today over the course of this weekend today and tomorrow as they could have made minutes if they. had. The likes to make those big time gaps today. Tomorrow is where you're gonNA make them and you're not going to have the opportunity to make those big time dabs and we saw what happened to the fronts if you if it's too close than you can lose it all in the time trial something or crash or puncture or something ill-timed some misfortune you WanNa take the opportunities when you can I don't really understand why you wouldn't take these opportunities today.

I'm the IT manager I Walker and I'm in charge of making sure that all of our dear I walk ins have the right tools and technology to get the job done whether they can externally. I, mean everyone knows how how tough it's been for everybody We we very quickly picked up on sort of mantra within. The Department that we've moved from looking after three offices to three hundred just to keep some perspective on on how we go about our jobs. Obviously, everyone's house is different and everyone set up at home is different. So we definitely had to upskill the team in how to. Get around the remote sort of household issues. We can't just drop by people's desks anymore to to fix a network issue we needed to make sure we understand what the typical person will have in their home and how Wifi works and an also introduced new problems for those people are home in normally they may have just used their wife for. Using a tablet to browse while they were sitting in front of the television whereas now they might be having to. Work out the small back sort of closet room which had no WIFI access. So we get quite creative and and really sort of start working to make sure our staff had. The skills and and the facilities to to get working productively. If you'd like to find out more about I walker to I walk dot co Dot U.. K.. That's I. W O C. I dot co Dot. UK. We'll hear more from James Tomorrow, what was a really excellent win by Davigo? Do we've been? We have been waiting for a big result that from him and he's he's a hugely talented writer. He's got great finish remember fleche-wallone. Two or three years ago and almost almost winning it, and when he was the first year prue and so I he was definitely a favorite for the finished with Marcella especially after solar had breached across and I mean once those to weigh in Solaar attacked first and go up to him. Am I expected solar? I wasn't sure whether Solaris was writing for the stage or g because he's already goes stage when. And in a it, you said earlier lizzy the the is perhaps didn't. Exploit their numerical advantage today. Am We'll talk about that again a bit later on but movie star have been doing that really well, and Em solaar gained a little bit of time back 'em. He's up to six overall to forty, four nine and I think he's going to be consistently there but they do have quite interesting Carson play with him and Valverde 'em by team going for the stage win and go do 'em the rents them in the end didn't a a great victory for good. Do 'em shimmied Francois on tonight for a bit French corner with the on. God do 'em. Michael Store, Mark Donovan. Third and fourth too young son Web brightest. Donovan's only twenty one am an an a really good climber and that's a great performance by him So early in his career son Web, you know the keep producing these writers don't learn writing in this interesting way to writers in the break again am I mean I described it as Bevin Darfur tomorrow's a staged to the Angliru and well, let's hear from the shoot shall we are audio diaries because it's really interesting to hear what he says in the context of some of our comments already by the stage stage? Alive. Absolutely. Ruutel. Day today from Columbia two zero. To the end Yeah for sure the Hottest Day when you it was going to be really hard, it was not stopped, which is always. Probably one of the most intimidating things as A. As a cyclist his a has not like that So. Yeah. Took a little while for the break to go was sweeper aggressive. In it. it finally went and then Martin. Mr Tim Williams is in there and I've got a little battle for the Komo Jersey. So coffee straight to the front. kept pretty close. and. Then on the first cut one climb of the day about forty odd kane at stage it was. On like, don't you call me again so So that game I could get across in and get some points. So that kilometers ridden full gas came back and just before the top a small group run away which is. The group that contested the staging. was also an eventful life Ross On the second loss the day. Quality. Tough on Esteban punctured at a at a bad moment. The pace was sort of getting progressively quicker. So he punctured go to wheel change. Callum who still there that point helped him a little bit and then are dropped back in and helped him back to the Peleton. and at that moment there that's that's spending a lot of energy in. at a really bad moment. So that was quite unfortunate. just just at the time of the rice it was it was super I'm lucky. which then us into the final climb after descent and He was a little bit little bit todd there, and then it was just a matter of pacing. Up the. Finish to limit losses and Yeah. Tomorrow's another super hot day and the rice isn't over so. we'll continue with the same goal. Very, interesting to hear nick shoots account of the day and he made a big deal of the work that coffee did keep the break on a leash. So that Gilmore Tanka bridge across and I suppose that was as significant as the move later on from Selena to get across and thinking about the finish rich. The the race between Goto and Salah Salah didn't have the legs when it really counted in the final five hundred meters but he had also of of all the ride in the break. He and Martin had probably made the biggest effort to get into in first place and perhaps paid for that. Yeah, I mean it's no surprise. He looked precooked after that effort to get over there because he came over latest you know and. then. He had the shortest amount of time to recover from that and it was a huge effort to get over there and yeah, these are pretty hot climbs today. So I think he did a pretty good job and. He made up time on. And he got six. I can bonus on the line as well in such take him up into sick. Yeah, it's a really great job, and then obviously he's guys teammate and fifth as well. So let's see what they can do tomorrow I. Hope. It would be nice to see one of them try and go for the podium rather than both of them try and get a menial top ten result. Okay. Yeah. Of course. Top Ten in the grand tour isn't a menial result, but you know what I mean, what's the point in being fourth and fifth if one of you could be third Don't forget. Valverde mean they've got three in the top ten I and they are. Linking this to what you were saying on there. But you Buddhism the writing in a very aggressive way movie star and I don't think they've got the firepower that movies Ma have an unwary of of being critical of the writers for not. Invite. Comes racing harder today and but you did say that it was perhaps an opportunity for visa to their the numbers kind. A finally George Bennett still up there am. I on he probably does have more firepower than volver. deion unmarked Salah. I really think so I mean I mentioned this yesterday and I really think it's a missed opportunity and everybody's listening to tomorrow. But the thing is you have to take the opportunity when it comes and okay yes, it's it's Rug login the Rutgers Jersey and it's not carapace but my director always says to us if you want to get the right off the chat, you have to go and do something special and you can't just you can't just sit and watch. And wait for these riders to win another race. If we just sit and watch and wait than enemies, just GonNa, win all of our racist because she is such a great writer and she is just so strong. So what you need to do is you need to go out there and you need to do something totally unexpected and you need to take it to the other teams and you can only do that. If you've got the Manpower Yamba, abysmal have the manpower. flicking on today because I was traveling. So I wasn't able to watch the whole stage live and I flicked on when they're on the penultimate climb and I think I think it was that point for him was still there and the bunch was massive and I just thought like what are they doing you know? About. Six writers here. Why didn't they hit a tempo? Drop the other riders, sendoff George Bennett, and they could have done that three times out. They could have sent him off miles out. They've really got nothing to lose because what's the point in having an three and a half minutes back on Why did you send them off per? You've already put any US on the back foot by by having him and having only carapace amador then yeah. You've still got six writers. You send George Bennett. They've. They're the ones that have got the chasing and yeah all the others like Martin. Hugh coffee that just kind of sitting that not knowing what to do because they didn't have any manpower to bring these writers back and then suddenly you've got George Bennett and the virtual Red Jersey and everybody else wondering what to do so yeah, I think it's a missed opportunity and I think that. We don't know what's GonNa Happen Tomorrow Rogue Lynch is looking really really really strong but if this rates comes down to seconds on the final day again and and and then somebody leases it because they have a mechanical, they're really gonNA regret not taking the option today I'm inclined to agree with you loosely. Because I mean photo is tough enough climb to make some more significant differences than we saw today and well. Car, repairs had the last man with him was Dillingham Bala and Bam Bala survived. AMADOR Shargel. Lost Yeah but. After a long time. But he was he was struggling he was swinging for a long time. I'M ADORE Not able to. I'm adore went reasonably early but he's been he's been. Carrying a big wait I'm a door. I totally agree like I said yesterday he's doing everything for the team and he can't do everything for forever because you know. When you do that day after day after day. You really start getting tired and you go so deep domestique you really do and then you dame republic because he's still got to get to the top of the climb. That's right. We saw amador sort of forty, five, fifty K. to go with bottles down his Jersey coming back up the the group or not from a huge. Distance Eight had to draw back but nevertheless, it's still an effort and really you're carrying bottles when you're going up the client is So hard a couple of extra kilos when your way that writing a temper war kind of threshold EPA climb don't underestimate how hard is. Tempted to agree the To Vima, there's really no point having four five riders still with rogue Lich with four five. K to go on a climb light that really shred it down and put people on the back foot and really make a race of rogue lich against carapace because at the moment isn't a simpler there is a bit more to the Dan. Martin is a threat he carthy. Okay and hasn't. Brilliant on the last two finishes but still close enough to be a threat and Massey's is quiet enough at the moment to think that Perhaps he's just been biding his time maybe who knows and and you Mbo visa with the Tour de France. So recent in memory when you think of how dominant I looked and we did feel that it was almost processional wasn't a rich from require early in the race. We didn't really start asking the question whether they've done enough until co until it was plunged developing exactly exactly. The thing the thing is with a tactic like that it is pretty extreme and everybody's got to have the balls to say yet I'm going to go for this and the director has to have the Bulls and so the writers. Sometimes, it's the director that comes up with it and sometimes it's the riders, but if everybody's not behind, it doesn't work and the thing is so often writers and directors are scared to because they do not Wanna put everything on the line and but yeah, if you don't put everything on the line, if you don't risk it all, then you don't make these huge gains. But if you risk it all, you do risk losing a lot more. Richard that the ultimate climbs today, they were both nine percent. If you're full gas and you're hurting every single other person is hurting you get absolutely no respite in the wheels and all you're doing to the other rider around you is you are giving them one of mental thrashing they're like Oh. My God, this team is going full gas and where sixty seventy k. out they must be so strong, I'm suffering but because they're the ones on the bag, they don't realize that the people in the front of suffering you earnestly the back of the riders you don't see faces when the absolutely swinging. It's it's it's a mental game as well as a physical and sometimes the bravest man wins. But if nobody's brave, then you don't make the gains. The cycling podcast is supported by science in sport.

That's a good question I think we're doing the London coach and we'll be we'll be riding box hill. I. Mean a good excellent. Am Lizzie just had a tweet a tweet. From Brian Cookson former Yusei president of course, in response to your tweet about. Visiting Preston bus station. He says, this is what I call proper journalism I am available to provide local expert comment. He's another Preston. Person We missed I of our list of distinguished Chris Doing ins but yet Bryan cooks from there as well. Isn't he? Lizzy to say as well that I'm I'm Richard My name's Richard and the other the other guy. I'm the I'm the friendly Scottish one and the other guy, the other guy is Lionel. There is A. Mistaken identity in lots part. I was getting so passionate about the need for Yamba mature as aggressively that I got confused and I was thinking of Richard Kluger, which actually got corrected a few seconds of game because I called him Richard Plug. Soi Don't you worry about 'em anyway on on with the on stage. And Ju just I was just looking down the list of finishes day for even Souza. Who should be up there I mean he's a he's a climber normally hundred. Finish thirty, six minutes I, I mean in the group paths with today obviously something not right with try and find out and what and Daniels obviously on the ground there may may have an idea as well but what's going on but you know carapace has 'em looks always very aggressive and dynamic on the bike but he's not really being supported at the moment in the way that he would. He would like an it's funny. Isn't it because we come from the Jiro? And where we saw such an impressive team performance from any Oscar deers and something m sort of stark contrast to that. here is yeah interesting. But the other notable event today was the the right of protests at the Star M which seemed to be well, it was a by the. Not so much the decision but the the deliberations taking. So long after yesterday's state of the site weather and there was a gap that was at. An. Actual gap in the Front group yesterday whether it was a stage merited a three second gap. That you know them dictate whether it'd be a time difference in writers I e the this are ruling that we see on flat stage or just one second gaps between writers for time differences and eventually decided on the latter and so the Red Jersey switch from a car repairs to rogue Lich but the rightist. Some writers were unhappy in several teams. Stays of protest this morning led by Chris Frim. It broke down a bit didn't. The was the point made with the point of being heard. I think the main point being made here is that The time taken taken to make the decisions the lack of clarity. And Yeah. The confusion around the situation is unacceptable. Yesterday, the decision was. Reversed and then reversed again, and then that's two days in a row that live coverage has gone off air and then commentators like us reporting on this race for the fans we only found out who actually on the first stage who'd actually won the race on the first age then on the second day was in the Red Jersey we only. Found out an hour later who it was, and so I really don't think that's acceptable acceptable that we don't even know that there's a jury deliberation taking place if we understand okay the jury deliberating this, it's going to take a certain amount of time. Their results will come as soon as they can. That's fine but then the needs to be care processes. Explain the rules yesterday about. Why it's a three in one second gap. So please go back and listen to yesterday if you haven't already but. I think, really yeah. What freedom was complaining about was the fact that the in the manual it said this was going to be it was going to be applied as Aspirin Protocol Day today yesterday. Sorry. And then they changed their mind and in his eyes, that's not and I do completely understand where he's coming from. But the other thing is that there is a rule a UCLA. That essentially says, Commerce says decision is final and the commerce can't make any decision that they want to you and I do actually think that is an important rule because there is always subjectivity you know. Often, in cycling things in clear and so is important that the commerce has and the Jerry I able to. To make a decision and not be overruled in certain situations. I'm not sure where I stand on that. Really am you know might woods made the point? Didn't he that? They've been told before the star it was gonna be one second, and then the sorry they were told that stars can be three seconds and then the end obviously ended up being one second. AM. Should decision not be take should the right is not be aware of what the rule is as they're racing m that the I you know I understand I found the stunned the need for flexibility but. That that seems like something that would be quite simple. There'd be no recourse than to complain if if you knew what the rules were before you start. I think it's difficult because you don't always know how it's GonNa Finish like I said yesterday I was always surprised that yesterday stage was ever down as a mass sprint finish because. Glance at the course and I thought oh well, that's going to be small groups and I do think that sometimes you may be thinking, it's going to be a small finishing it ends in a bunch finish. Therefore, if you think it's going to be a one second protocol than actually the three second mass brin protocol needs to be applied. So it's the other way around really the way it should be is that If it's if it's a day where the three kilometer crash rule applies, then it should be the three seconds aspirin protocol and any other uphill finish or mountaintop finish there should be no three kilometer crash role and there should be one second replied yeah. That's the way I would do it if I was the race organizer. No. I also know that. The VUELTA deemed certain races to be Mass Brin mass sprint protocol stages. Sorry. Certain stages to Mazarin protocol stages and the actually overruled certain stages. But stage ten wasn't one of those stages. Yeah Complicated complicated issue but at the end of the day. The bottom line is that. The the whole issue could have been avoided if Richard oposite being further up the road and not far behind. As really the essence of bike racing. Off, the back a bit or a lot. Then you're the mercy of the the regulations interpretation of the regulations and the clock, and that is what stage racing at all about and. I think that really the way to avoid having an issue is to not finish that far behind I mean that's the whole of the. Of course he was trying to be as high as he could look the gap and. and. This happened. At the end of the day it's actually probably better for the. Grenadiers. In the Red Jesse today because can you imagine if they had to? Take the front on a day like today they. have been out of men maybe maybe it. will be joined the protests this morning. Some relief however, the rug has. Come back into the Red Jersey from the Green Jersey which many felt was. clashing. Terribly with with everything really I wasn't a big fan of his green socks. He likes to socks with the Jersey doesn't end the Green Song. To`real disaster with his yellow armaments. The jalen as well with the. When? He puts his July over the top, which is also not even a standard you mbo visible Gla because she's Slovenian champions which introduces even more colored I mean by the end he was starting to look like a court jester. Well Don Martin will wear the Green Jersey tomorrow and Ragas still heiser by rights but Martin. Went over let leapfrogged Richard carapaces on I think I think Martin. Pre- pretty sharp today and he he should. He should enjoy angler should they I think he he could go wild tomorrow. Now he's having a great welter and it's It's really great to see him. Yeah. Performing at the highest level and. Well apart from his his little crash earlier in the. Remember, which stage it was when the strange late one when he had a little tumble but thankfully was on the same time but Yeah. Apart from that he's not only misfortune so far. So I wish him no misfortune. And the rest of the race because. So often that has been his downfall really and. Yeah I think he's he's really got the legs and I hope tomorrow he's going to have a day but he seemed Infallible Sofa what one thing I wanted to just note. Was that thought a studious we were in. We weren't we today absolutely beautiful and one thing that always surprises me about the welte although it shouldn't I is just the. You know the fact that these these big mountains exist outside of just one or two mountain ranges, which is more the case and. In in France and Italy perhaps you know the the mountain ranges are very famous in Spain you've got these huge claims is dotted all over the place and I thought the the countryside daily absolately spectacular. The light was beautiful and they've been blessed by reasonable weather. Haven't they haven't been the questions for the Vuelta that there were other Jiro by whether the weather might. have an impact on whether the. Red Rock late show Mr almost lost the race by not being able to get range. The world's say there was the. But generally I mean today looked great loot. Lovely. So I'd have to agree with you. It's definitely fueled. My Zairean, ride along the north coast of Spain, and and I do love this autumnal evening lightly you'll gain on the end of every stage and the way kind of lights winners faces they crossed the line every day it's really quite beautiful and I'm not sure. The pilot on will be keen to move any of the grand tours into the autumn next year, but it's it's really nice to have something a little bit different than it feels quite special in what's been very difficult and challenging year so far east of welter of the long shadows and it does look nice definitely. Well the Richard of you ever been there I have not Lionel. It's You. Fat You flipping somebody didn't you frontier? Was it? Well. On the organize I was GonNa say, well, hang on. On the organizers were laying on a minibus to take journalists from the pressuring, which was down in town. Probably about five or six K from the bottom of the angry up to the talk about. Veterans of covering of Welter, tip me off that basically what happens is they set off in the box and then get maybe a third of the way to climb when the gradient really starts to buy, and then then they kind of create some kind of drama and they give the journalists, the option of either. Getting out and walking to the top or staying in the bus and going back down to the pressroom and no intention of taking the. Up Sort of twenty, one, twenty, two percent gradient because basically not to put too fine. A point on it minibus wouldn't make that so. We dumped out and we had to walk. It was really quite a long way probably about five or six K. Up the Angliru but it gave me real impression of just how steep is in places but I did manage to break away from friend who was covering the well to with us on that occasion and. I find this section on in our book a journey through the site career, we got cycling podcast. I I Yeah Whoa here we are am. I decide I have to be in the early break. So I set off with barely glance over my shoulder. We may be teammates me and Fran, but it's every man and woman for themselves. Now I leave him laughing chat thing and I think eating a biscuit apart from wishing I also had a biscuit. I have no regrets I straight up a very steep section realize it's going to take me a long time to walk the talk up ahead I see a woman pleading with the passing vehicles to give her. Lift she's having the luck until she decides to walk in the Middle Road, which forces the next vehicle small white van Covington Vuelta logos to stop behind her she waves her accreditation driver the driver shakes his head, but she's not taking no for an answer manages to open the back door of the van for he can drive off noticing there's room for not. So small one I get into whereas Ron. Who knows who cares I am Warren Bar Gil He is Wilco Kelderman. I've got ages to get my story straight. There we go with shocking shocking moment in the history of the cycling podcast but you've got there you've got. A friend there in the end as well. I know not how? To. The top of. Every in the flashes every bit as spectacular as it looks it is. Yeah, I mean is ridiculously state. The while is Steeper than the Motorola is not in places I think it's it is one of the steepest climbs in. The world tour I mean it's it's like the murder he but it's a proper mountain. It's not just a Coletta climb out in the back of we a end flesh while on its So it's spectacular and it does sort out. The, riders doesn't it we we may well see some some gaps open up tomorrow. Well, the last time the race went up there who finished second on the stage. Lionel while polls while polls could he be the man tomorrow who knows now? You're probably right Lizzie, but we try to inject a bit of suspense into. Yeah. Thanks for that. I. Hope He's listening. But I saw you'll be you'll be. As well as. Oh, my goodness substitution for tomorrow. Thanks very much for joining us. Again, you will be joining us again tomorrow night. Won't you? I will be indeed looking forward to the fireworks and I have to say I didn't give them enough credit they have been. They have been put on a show for everybody. So yeah not quite sure what they're doing maybe they're just. Really. Cement Tomb that team classifications but I have been enjoying that writing. So Yeah I will see you tomorrow when hopefully we have a love attacking to talk about. Well. Thank you, Lizzie. Thank you, Lionel. Thank you, Richard. Thank you, Lizzie. You're just creating more suspense. Bulls.

My name is Pete Sweeney I me editor in chief of Arrowhead Pride Dot Com as promised. It's a jam packed from the podium they lot of zoom press conferences nine to be exact. If you WANNA check our description, it'll have exact time stamps of when you can find these interviews but I'm going to read the order for you right now. Offensive Coordinator Eric be enemy defensive. Lineman. Frank Clark cornerback Rashad Fenton was a quick break then we'll hear from special teams coordinator Dave Toe Punter Tommy Townsend quarterbacks coach Mike Kafka our second break will happen. Then we'll hear from wide receivers coach Gregg Lewis Defensive Backs, coach, Sam, Madison and finally linebackers coach Matt House again check the description. If you want to hear from an exact coach right now, we're going to start with the chief offensive coordinator. Here's the enemy to a good morning. Good Morning. We've had some guys competing asses off training camp. It's been a great ride so far. We've asked him guys come off off of injuries and contribute got a few players down but you know what we understand hey, next man is up. It's been a very competitive can't guys are having fun and I'm just enjoying the energy and the competition between both units spend a lot of fun to be a part of and there's just been fun to watch. So with that said fellows inequalities to start. Let's go to Steve Waugh Steve. A. Good how're you doing st not to yesterday coast to Coast Madison share with us the Andy always allows his players have open dialog even more. So now everything going on in the country being a former player. How much have you share with some of the guys of your experiences not only being black athlete but also as a black man on and off the field and also your thoughts on guys using their platforms, bring awareness to social injustices in this country. First of all coach read has been the same ever since I've known him. Since plan for him in Nineteen, Ninety nine, he was always that way he wanted guys to allow. He wanted to allow guys let their personality show. He wanted the true man to sit there and shine if you had something on his heart known as mine one thing what players they've done a hell of a job of just expressing one. Another have an open dialogue and I'm very proud of the fact of what we're doing. It's about time that we start having voter registration about Kudos to. Pat Kudos to tire you know about having a back of the organization were Clark Mark Donovan also with vh you know just a testament to the environment that we have and like I said the chemistry here and you guys have heard me say this before it's a unique situation because the guys like each other we may not always agree but you know what? They find a way to respect one another in come together with the decision that's going to be best for the Organization for US moving forward. It's Pete Swing. Coach I. I was curious about Clyde, Edwards Alaria we know a lot about the team returning so many guys. But when it comes to Clyde, a big obstacle to getting on the field earliest pass protection, you guys feel confident and where he's at their now within two weeks to go into the regular season that it's GonNa be okay to to protect patent. Oh Yeah. In fact I say this dealing has done a hell of a job and I'll tell you what he has a great room of people to work with. Okay. So Clyde is not only received some coaching from from dealing he's also received some coaching from Nevada and WHO's been helping him out tremendously, and then on top of that, you know we got a bunch of boxes as played a little while. So young there are ways has been outstanding in helping him with his technique and just teaching him all the calls and the things he should expect versus coverages starting at he see so. Am I go say he's perfect. Now he's not perfect but I've enjoyed watching the progress that he has made each and every day. Then when you got a kid that can explain to you why he made a mistake that's when you know he's getting it. So he's doing a heck of a job. You know I know he's going to do everything under the sun to help us to do better than what we need to, but also to he. The importance. If you don't protect that quarterback, you can't play. Darren? Smith. Good. there. Hey Thank you so much coaching. Glad. Man doing good doing battle over look forward to seeing you again real soon kind of following up on what Steve has a little bit about what we're asking you know how how has it been on question? How has it been trying to You know see the players in I guess in the live atmospheres prejudice. And then what you're seeing in training camp knowing that you're not going to get a preseason game and how you make your decision out who makes the final cut, and then also of course you know looking back of course you you are a black man is that part is obvious but there are NFL players who have talked about possibly boycotting the first game of see. Now I don't know if the kids are GonNa go to that extent but if the players decide to take, will you as an individual as a chiefs coach along with your with your? Colleagues. Taking the with them. So I ask you a question about training camp. I guys have done a heck of a job. It's been spent a little different due to the times we're living in with the pandemic and everything but the thing that I guys have done a heck of a job love just improvising and adapting one thing that we've learned here together Lee together collectively as a staff is remain flexible as one thing that you have to be when you coaching would were coterie but also to our players have remain flexible and they've been poised under pressure and they've adapted to the schedule and they've caught on. A David. Sale they've been working their tails off I. Say it hasn't been perfect. There's no such thing as. One thing that we always want to do, we want to strive for perfection in order to achieve excellence and I think guys have the focus and the mindset to do it the right way, and we've got plenty of vets who guidance and leanness now. Talking about what's going on in the world I mean, there's a lot. You know I'm fifty years old this year I've seen a lot I've been around a lot but here's the thing that I love that I guys doing a great job of there's nothing that gets me more excited than watching what pat entire have done. What voters registration deal I mean that is as outstanding at is huge at a huge step. In the right direction, we got players don't eight money. In the black community making sure that not only the the finances can make a change but also be in there. Okay. We got a number of guys who understand the difference between what's right and what's wrong and I'm GonNa say this again. Okay. A bunch of guys on his team that like each other they care about one another, we have a great culture and it starts from the top. Starts with a great owner Clark Hunt. Okay, and it just trickles down it trickles down the mark Donovan giving guys voice. Okay. It also trickles down to Brett vh in the things that he does making sure that these guys are confident in ashes and what they're doing and what they're saying. But also to you know more pointedly it's with coach read allowing these guys to allow their personalities to show and understanding that regardless of what decisions that we're. GonNa, we're GONNA make them together. Those guys are GonNa Take Care, and we're going to support our players one hundred and twenty percent in everything that they do. We've got three hands up. Let's go right down the line Herbie Ataman the nate's go ahead Herbie. Pleasure who you're well. You mentioned. You mentioned the you mentioned the cooled environment and you know. To here how surprise are you or how pleased are you that you are able? To, get to this point where you are one day away from wrapping training camp and then on the training camp. Well. Players jumped out to you in the surprise you on offense. Well. So to go back to the covert, let's spend a long season. It's been a challenging off-season. It's been one that you know. I. Mean Been Challenging Not only to us here as Kansas, city chiefs, but it's also been challenging to everybody that's experienced in this in this country and we wanted to be very sensitive to everybody's issues and what's taking place Yes it has been tough. It's been tough with the families. You know what the thing that I'm proud of is that the organization is finding ways to do it the right way for us to provide a way you know I think what we're doing is is a great example for for many others to do around the country and to be here. And a have an opportunity to do what we love I. think that's just a blessing you know and just the accountability so far. So good everybody has been doing the right thing making sure that they're staying out of harm's way because everybody has different issues that they may have to have to deal with that just goes to show you the love and the trust that we have from top to bottom k., and then just talking about what the players were training camp. These guys are working tails off you know I know you guys have heard me yelling being loud and vocal yelling all positive good things and. Being very supportive but these guys have worked their tails off and I'm proud of them and we're less than two weeks away from Game Day I couldn't ask under the circumstances for guys to come out and do a better job than what they have. Now we'll continue to work we'll continue chopping wood we all continue grinding on these guys because when it's all said and done, would we wanna be at our best when we kick this thing off and less than two weeks on Thursday night? It's GonNa. Adam. Tyson. got. Adam. Eric, how you doing today? Adam how you doing good. Yeah. We've heard yelling once or twice turn practice Oh don't worry about it. We came through loud and clear. A couple of things for you just wondering with all the unusualness of this season does this felt like camp to you number one and number two on WanNa go back something you said about, Edwards earlier you said that Paraphrase and a little bit he said. He can tell you at the end of a play maybe something he did wrong on that particular place, you can give us an example or two of maybe something that he where he did that. So. Talking about camp has it felt like that. Now it's felt different. It was an it was an adjustment to start with especially with the rams face and you guys gotta understand what creatures have had. We've done it one way here. Since I've been here and then you guys got Understan- Every organization primarily that I've worked under comes from this background and so when you're used to doing it a certain way, sometimes change is hard and with everything with the schedule and how it all worked out. It was challenging not just for the players, but it was challenging for coaches making sure we get. Schedules right. Making sure that we keep in our guys involve and understanding that, hey, they have to remain flexible schedule. So it's been great because it's helped us to grow. It's helped us just like I say it's helped us to remain flexible through it all and to learn how to improvise and adjust as we know things happen in life you got to be to. Navigate your way through that course when things ain't just such a straight narrow but Your next question here about Clyde The thing that's important. You know when you're talking to because certain times technique, he'll go in there and not utilized the the the proper technique and that's not what I'm talking about. It's more about, hey, understanding what did the quarterback witted pat tell you what did the Senate communicate? What did the defensive front tell you what did the rotation in the secondary tell you and so he's starting to see all the net and that's when you know. Okay you know what he's starting. To get it. You know I'm watching them have conversations with those guys. I'm here in a conversation in the answers that feedback that he's given to me, and the important thing is not only is he talking to me but I can him talking to Sherm and talking to young when Daryl and those guys they got a nice chemistry and that's that's the thing that you want. You want those guys have an understanding on how to fix it and how to make it right doesn't always have to come from us. And that's the beauty of the environment that we have. We have a great culture. These guys are working their tails off they understand that hey, regardless of WHO's in there? Okay. We all got to be accountable and we all have to know exactly what we're doing and how to do it. Going to Taylor for the last one KGO eight. Eric I have got two topics for you. You may not know all thirty two owners obviously but but what do you think makes Clark such a model representation for the league should go in terms of ownership right now based the things that have gone on and secondly. Speaking of the voter registration if the chiefs are able to have early stadium, be a place for people to vote what emotions will that. Invoking you if you do see that come to fruition on election day. Gay. So. He asked the question about Clark I mean just look at the history. I may have a me when are you? Originally, AFL teams look at the names of the people that was drafted here. I mean a lot of those guys came from historical black colleges. A lot of those guys represent themselves. We have represented himself not only as excellent athletes on the field, but off to feel as a commendable citizens and they're in the hall of fame as well. So that says a lot not only okay about Clark but just the family that he's been. A part of and that's one thing that we appreciate the hunts understand exactly what has been going on in this world because they've seen it. All right. They've inherited right and I guarantee you will Lamar Hunt was alive blesses. So during a particular time, I'm sure he experienced a number things when he first started off with those particular players play for his NFL. So that's what Clark has and Clarke has lived through that and what better person to be a role model, and then as you talked about, you know trying to get the stadium here for for as a place where people could come and vote that would be. Just historical you know why? I just remember growing up as a as a young kid you know. When I turned eighteen. I do a few things I. To, go. I had to get a job I had to go to school I was going to join the service but on top of that, my mother told me Yo ass is going to vote okay. You are going to vote because we fought for this right I in how `bout that these guys have stood up. and Said Hey let's make this. Right. Let's make it where everybody can have an opportunity to come to the stadium and vote this is I'm proud of the people that we have in this building, but I'm also proud of the people that have provided the light in a way for them. So they can come out and be free to be who they are and and speak freely to the world about what's going on and making the change. Coach we appreciate your time today. Thank you. Thank you. You guys. Take care. Frank, how we doing man? I Don Goodman just want to ask this question of actually all the players You know a common term around you know any anywhere you see is a lot of black men said that they're exhausted. They're tired. My question to you is simply are you tired you tired of everything that you see in sports kind of provided a little bit of a distraction for you? Yes I am. I got I got a family I got kids man and they are you know they're going to be forced to learn about this stuff and I might to explain it to at some point in their life and that's the most difficult part because that's the most difficult part that I have to deal with. You'RE NOT GONNA only speak for myself is because I know one that might explain this they're going to ask and I got really explain it's a point where they understand and That's the most difficult part because a lot of this stuff is going to be hard to you know there's going to be hard to you know keep a ruined explain them because I wasn't educated like I should have been you know growing up on these things that was happening in times in the past you know Rodney King and stuff like that. But not just having to educate my kids on this stuff in you know literally have to you know. On the Internet is a world where everything is on the Internet. Now so they're going to be able to see it on the Internet and see you know not just was going on the day, but it ended up going on the last few years to be specific. So yeah. Let's go to nate nate. Good to see you man. Kind of following up on what herald just magician. A Lotta guys on this team. That's sort of acknowledged sort of the historical moment you guys are GonNa have to raise a banner on opening night what that means for the franchise. But also you're gonNA play the first major football game in the country since the Super Bowl I just wonder how much do guys understand this significance of what you guys are GonNa have in front of you less than two weeks from now. I. Mean. Some guys don't have to because you know must have played on opening night not I mean you're you know you got guys that's filling in roles in coming in plan in big games you know though is going to be a lot of pressure on them but to that I can say that you got just take it all in. You know you coming off a good season where we won a super. Bowl not not as good as we should've started this season. But on you know when you finish won the Super Bowl, takes away all the bat. But on, we just want to start strong. I feel like we came off last year on starting kind of slow off the success they had the year before. So and then myself coming in you know with everything distracts again, paid you knowledge stuff going on. With the injuries and stuff me starting slow me being a player who I am me non who I am you can't afford to star slow you know 'cause I know it can jeopardize my team and then what everybody else is just pushing our offense to get you know not letting them get complacent settlements you know that complacency thing and Dan for us. This is humbling ourselves understand that it's more work to do. You know we understand that we got a great offense but you know we wanna be even better defense. You know see some more flash to what happened. Towards the second half of that season, rather than you know the first half. McDowell going Sam. Frankly Salama. How you doing. I'm wondering just what sort of conversations you guys have had for us players as far as potential demonstrations or protests on opening night. Man Yeah It's it's too early for that. I. Feel I felt like I mean is it conversations of course but? It's been a lot of a lot of focus football to honestly We spent so much time away from this in dealing with this is that we're gonNA continue to do it. That's understand I. Understand you know to our country. I. If they think at another back man isn't going to get killed by police officer I. Feel like everyone is confused. You're not for like if we don't think that is gonNA happen again and continue to happen. Few is just at this point, we have to do something about it. and. Like you said it's just it's just we're going to be confused is this Is Crazy. Pete Sweeney. Be. Morning Frank to questions for you. First thing I was wondering you had a sickness at the beginning of camp and I know you had some issues with stomach last year and even dating back to Seattle I. I was just curious generally speaking how you're feeling and then number two now that you've been with two franchises and you can kind of compare the two after year. What's the best thing about being a Kansas City? Chief. Nothing like the competition a- practice just how hard we work and I've just I've been bartered mini football programs. You know what? I mean I many but you know college in High Level Program. Man. We worked so hard. We work Andy Reid. He's a Helluva coach and he pushes so hard every everyday as guys who who practiced through injuries and do things that they probably shouldn't do because you know in this all based off us not one at this point coach or us not one you know God there and not be have our teammates back and I feel like that's important when you got everybody bought in and everybody believing in each other, you know from top to bottom from the coaching staff, the front office all the way down to the players staff under US and Even. Genders and everybody just this all started to go in this all the same go and this all just aiming one and AFC championship. We've got three more. Let's go Darren Stephen Todd going there. Hey. Frank, how're you doing my brother Couple of things I don't think you really answer. Of course I know you've had like you said stomach issues what is the cause of that or you know and how to? Work on that and then the second part look I I. I gotta ask this because I am an all that others but you know you see cheese fans of course they cheer you on when you're you know winning and you're leading Yuli Organization to a Super Bowl and they want you to Kinda like Lebron James Shut up and dribble but you know. But when you. But when you decided to take a stand you know and and you you speak out black lives. Matter and you and you're you know you're doing what you're doing, what the voter registration what you do with with the four day we talked about a few weeks ago. What would you say cheese fans who who, who, who, just want you to stick to football and and and not do audits quote unquote political stuff as though you're like you're on like you wanted to do it but it's being thrust upon. I just says it's a place for everybody mind and sometimes this guy staying you place, you know everybody don't have the platform to do what we do. You know everyone doesn't have that that platform that can reach most people and new two things that we do. So I just felt like that you know you just gotTa stay places certain things Matthew a fan of the game, you a fan of the game. The Fan of the person. Fan of that person's personal preference to. Aside I. Would movement or what's politically you know I feel that's a lot of people's problem because they feel they still too strong about how another person feels and they should really be worried about their own business but I'm on my on my on my. Thing with the injury of is just Yeah, it was. It was frustrated because my stomach man is You know you I, have surgery a few years ago and Just. Battling through a lot of people know of course I. Don't I'm not. I'm not about to go around 'til nearby my stomach hurt us on said. I'm sick all this stuff man but you know I, it just takes a lot. Outta me this. Physically, it takes a lot out of me when my stomach star act by episodes basically it's like I have real bad acid. So when acid is a Food that has asked and stuff like that. That nature just build a and I gotta take my acid blockers and stuff like that and my my pills in all these different things and I gotta Eat Leiderman I gotta hydrate and duties things more. So it's just kind of one those things when I when you get of course when you get out in can't. Go from being at home all day to you know all of a sudden we out there bussing our ask you know eventually things like that are going have on. Sometimes you know my dehydration is different from the average persons dehydrate I give you hydrate amount might need a hospital because I'm needing some IV. On the I need the right fluid. And things like that so Just. Men of the past that honestly I got past that and I had little. Every once in a while the last one I had before then was before what the Patriots game so I just had little episodes every once in a while if I don't got my right medication but. We got all that under control. Staff up here you know they do an excellent job with taking care of me man in hats off to rick and his staff up here. Oh, Julie. Too. That's my dog. She hold it down but They they did a hell of a job or just making sure you is good getting you back out there. You know non I'm rolling getting my feet up. And I'm ready to go onto the season. At the last two. Let's go stephen and todd going Steve. So. What you breath not much man You said you you have to worry about your your stomach You also have to worry about explain to your kids what's going on today's society. Not, only that it Kobe's still out there training camp. Just the racial issues in most recently Kenosha Kenosha Wisconsin. Yes. So just how hard is it as a black athlete? For you to go out there and focus on what you need to focus on the field as you prepare for Thursday night football game. I mean, it's hard because all they want us to do is play football anyway you know what I mean but. Today I'm. You know you have a job and you have to. Ensure duty to. You have a contract and you have a job and a job and you have a contract, you know should job. To finish that. So whatever pertains to if they tell you gotta be somewhere they take, I, do some you've got to do it. The frustrating part is when you want to speak out about certain thing or you want to use your voice your platform to speak out about certain things and you don't have the courage to because of you know House on Internet organization maybe we're in or how you may. Feel you know so it's Kinda hard. But like I said when you can take small groups that you can take your people who who, who can reach certain other groups do not I mean you can educate your children you can educate you the people who might not understand your homeboy in the hood who might not be watching TV or understand what's really going on. You gotta understand I mean you can You can make them understand it a little better from. Your point of view on the level of which you are. You know I think that's where you start us controlling what you can control ness the person next to you know. For the last one, it's A frank, you've been in a league long enough and a couple of different organizations here. Do you think the the League is in a better place as far as the social justice issues go than it was when you first got into it have you seen any progress last year's and are are you hopeful for the future? You see you see actions, people doing things and try to do things and. see protests seem peaceful protests. You seem every different type of protests you can see, but it still hasn't been changed I felt like that society is going to be hard to see change when you know to action to start in the. Lead up into a doesn't change. You got a lot of laws in place that protect certain groups individuals but at the end of the day like I said before. You can control got to do more to. Frank, we appreciate your time today. Thank you. I appreciate. Thank you. Sean, how you doing today and? What about you so good. Thank you. just wondering what parts of your game you feel come a long way since maybe. Last season you feel like there's some areas, your game that you've really worked on and try to improve and and it showed up here in camp. of course just. Letting the defense, get a better grasp better defense and how everything is flowing, not just my parts but also the the other players on the field with. Let's go to hell couldn't go herald. EERSHAD, I'm going to ask the same question to pretty much every player today obviously in light of everything that's been going on with the not only. Jacob. Blake shooting everyone that's happened in the last you know hundreds of years of society obviously. There's a Commun- expression around at everyone says that I'm exhausted I'm. Tired. Tired of. You you you know you. To Tie you know what I mean. Just. The fact that that can be my father that can be my uncle that can be me. What means so just putting that that that into perspective of treat everyone equal manit on the why. So how was discussion now to give treated affairs? SCURVY Herbie GOP. It was shot. Hope you're well. You saw some action on defense last year you saw some action on special teams I. Think you played like thirty percent of special teams snaps fast you're you're probably in line to see a lot of action the start the year with the shop Greeland suspension. How do you feel your time on special teams helps you as you prepare to probably assume bigger ruled this year. SP-, special teams helped me get my. It helped me fill out the energy. It just helps me a defense wise and you gotTa start the game off and finish the game with special teams so. That being on that don't that special team, your special, and it just helps me. Like I, don't know just bring out more few after you at the done did a special teams replicas did anything special teams was is great. Todd libra good. You're a younger player in the League. When you were in college and this the demonstrations and things for star the National Football League with Colin Kaepernick, what were your thoughts about that as a young player and how much have you kind of moved through evolving your thoughts on those things as you become a pro you? What do you think's GonNa Happen when you guys hit the field on that Thursday night against Texas I am young player who Mika was was demonstrating type of things. I was an University of South Carolina and it was some things going on there as well. They still had the confederate flag at the State House when I was a freshman at. Carolina. So it was a real Alpina I'm coming from Miami Florida wears a real diverse places. The melting pot everyone treats each other equally there and that's how was born and raised on. Down there is is hard to point fingers at anyone because your parents wasn't wasn't even born here. You know what I mean. So it is. This is this. Goes to say. On. Whatever you WANNA represents a free country man I can't hate one man for being different than me or demonstrate anything different. If that's what you feel you need to express your cellphone as a man, you should be able to do so without any judgment and as go a long way on and just the go with us I'm I feel I team is built on I. It's a unity. We are a brotherhood and everything we can strong with what's going on in society. So I feel like everything just goes smoothly it won't be too much of a a chaos here I don't think we will have the same vision you. We've got time for two more quick guys. Let's go pete and Sam go ahead beat. Morning Rashad we had an opportunity to talk to Sam Madison yesterday and he said that coming into camp, you knew that you'd be more of a dual guy inside outside you played a lot of inside last year you're going to be a critical part of this team considering you're doing both things just how has that gone this training camp? What's made? You feel confident that you'll be able to pull that off going into the regular season. I is going to my coaches prepared me for this moment I mean, don't get me wrong off season why the? Of course I had to take things into my hand off season but just eyelash your with my numbers God I'm going do my job well done from Miami Florida. Unprepared for for whatever the coaches have For me. On, we're going to be caught I'm be ready to do it to the best of my ability. That's all I can do. To Santa Claus One Sam Shot just to build off of what Pete just asked yet. But he played a lot of slot cornerback last last year where the different challenges applying inside compared to you know I know you plan on outside in. College. You just mess with different receive with different frames on got to be more cautious. Of course when you're cornerback split some just. Will Ball Hashes on. This is more. So just understanding the game on a different level when you corner and of course, if you inside, you gotTa whereby run game and etc.. Just those little experts just gotTa be more cautious about when you're. Rashad we appreciate the time today my friend. Thank you.

Welcome back to a rather long edition of from the podium we continue on with chief special teams coordinator Dave Dope. Doing here. I know when when you guys make Rosser decisions this time of year in the next week or so that. Goes into that but how much? Of that factor preseason games what you see on film preseason games in a typical year. Really. You know when we had preseason games that was a big factor especially on specialty because that was the only time that we really went live and so somebody tackler block live. But now we have to make decisions off a practice like I said last week and we meet every night as a staff and we go over each guy we evaluate each guy, we put grades on them. And you know and we're really really I mean obviously doing looking at practice and that's all we really can do and you know everybody's in there but here's where each guy says. So we know where everybody stands. Let's go to hurry hurry. Coach along those same lines what what Sanders asked the fifth or sixth wide receiver position often comes down to their ability to contribute on special teams. What specific traits do you look for in order before determined they're pulling away from the rest of the pack. What we're looking for guys like pringle. Guys like camp guys like Peter. I mean we are so fortunate are wide receiver crew and cores is really really really good on special teams I mean. All the way down the line from from Damarcus on down so It's it's a solid group. You know I, Love McCall I, mean, I love all those guys. The only guy we really don't use as is fourteen. You know I mean besides that everybody has a role on special teams and and every one of them is it brings up to the table. Let's go to Saran. Goodson. Coach around the League. Number of teams choosing not to practice today coach we talked about the conversation that was had yesterday I'm just curious and you know what the tone was whether or not. There was a conversation today what your personal opinion is a modern teams not practicing. Well. I mean, I really feel for what's going on I mean it's a shame that you know we're still dealing with this that's really how I feel about it. But you know our our team is a solid group. They love each other we talk all the time. I. Think Coach really has a great handle on the whole situation. you know he talks with the leaders of our team and. And if some said, you know behind closed doors, I don't hear about everything that goes on you know. But I know there's a Lotta great conversations going on within our football team right now. Pete Sweeney. God beat. Coach thanks for taking some time. I have just two things I was wondering if you could provide some insight on on what you're seeing right now at the governor position and then I was just curious about what Rodney clements pick could potentially bring to the table. The positions looking pretty good i. mean we we have some good solid depth there. We brought a Antonio Hamilton in from the giants who? Probably was the giants number one gunner Last year, we put the tape on, he made a lot of plays for men. We're really happy to add him know to the mix. So right now I I probably say a Antonio is in the lead with with pringle obviously pringle was gonNA roll year last year, and then we have a number guys behind by them I mean can't he was he was starting gunner for us and and he's really looking really looking good this this all season coming coming off his knee injury he's looking good and. Other guys that can play Robinson COMPLA- it. And complaint I mean there's a there's a number of guys a complete goner for us in in some of these guys are good to you know the you know the needs of the world and Bobby keys I mean they're all Contributors and they're all GONNA help us this year. Time for. Go Adam and then nate go at them. Hey Dave how you doing today. Good Hey just along the lines of what we've been talking about here. Do you have a feel for some of the your younger guys on what you have you mentioned snead a little bit but I was wondering about snead a Willie Gay Darius Harris those kind of guys. Feel for what what you're GONNA get auto them when the season starts. I mean, that's a great question I mean because I mean really you see you see what's going on in practice and you see good things. But when when is live bullets just not going to know until we get in there and play you know I know there's going to be a period of a learning that go on in the first two games with these young players. because. You can't match the speed that you're going to get. An all you can do is talk about it every day we talk about it every day when we watch we watch. Regular, season tapes. So they can see how fast it is, but it's hard to mimic that in practice. So a lot of these guys are going to have to learn on the run and. I think we're in a good position right now we're getting a lot of practice in. We're getting plenty of time to work on things We just we just hope that you know if they do make a mistake, it's not a huge one. But everybody will make a mistake and You know we just move on and don't don't make the same mistake twice I mean that's what we try to do on special teams. Let's go to nate. Taylor finish off at night. Dave. Thanks again. I know you mentioned earlier sort of the discussion going on with the team in relation to everything that's happening in the country another other choose obviously not pricing today, I. I, just wanted to follow that in as you could give perhaps an example that. SORT. Of the unity and sort of the conversation between players and coaches as you guys move closer to opening night considering that you guys are to away now from that being of not being the case about how you want to move forward. I just know more teams close. You know and I know I know we you know. We talk about everything I mean nothing nothing's really. kept kept a secret. You know I mean we. Coach reads one winning sets the table for that you know he he says the table in meetings and. When you know when we're behind closed doors and without talking about everything that we do there I'm just I'm just letting you know that it's an open conversation and everybody. Is Free to say what they want to say. Culture we appreciate the time today. Thank you. Okay. Take care. Morning Tommy Web and talk to you in a a longtime just generally speaking wide net here. How has training camp gone and what makes you think you're ready for your first professional opportunity here A training training camps been awesome. So I mean, it's super exciting I mean it's my. Mind my rookie season, a rookie training camp and. Obviously it's not how I would've expected my rookie training camp go as far as you know like the the Cova precautions and stuff like that but you know. Our south and doing a great job of. Keeping US socially distance and keeping everybody safe. But beyond no training canceling going great and you know I'm really excited to get going to the season. Go to Todd Leo. Tommy been asking a lot of questions of players about the social justice issues. You've probably got a unique perspective is white guy was a young guy who hasn't hasn't been in the league. What sort of conversations been like we heard coach Madison say a lot of conversations run lunch tables and stuff you guys are all having. What have you learn what have you kind of people about Europe bringing and and kind of you know getting along with everyone? Has it been eye-opening for you yet definitely know the biggest thing for me I think is just listening and learning from a for my teammates. You know it's it's always good to step back and learn. and. I think that's that's something that's been happening a lot. You know recently and our our vets and team leaders have been doing a great job of you know bringing awareness in doing everything we can to to start moving forward and create change. So you know that's something I'm looking forward to just keeping this the discussions going and just continuing to Larne. Harold Harold. It's I'm hope you're doing woman My question is pretty much the same question. I've been asking a very player and that is you know you see the news it's hard to kind of stay off the social media Stuff that's happened with George Floyd Jacob Blake and Everything that's happened last four or five years. A common expression, a lot people uses how tired air how exhausted they are. Tired of you and how exhausted our you've seen all this in the Will you know this is this is something that's very new to me in. It's something that is you know a lot of light being shed on it now So I mean I think it's it's definitely something that it's it's sparking inside me. That's making me. WanNa go forward and create change in and do what I can to help out A lot of stuff going on. It's just it is tire aiming even the short period of time that I've really been seeing on social media. It's it's exhausting to see in. You know I I hate CNN I. Hate. Seeing how it affects my teammates and how it affects their families and You know it's obviously not right and it's You know something that's we gotta do better on. We gotta change. Dow Going Sam. ITAMI from the outsider's perspective is seems like punish job making the transition from college fell doesn't really change all that much but you're living at right now what does change when you make this next up here you know the biggest thing is scheme You know in in college, we usually have spread ponts but you know we were using the profile of pro punt formation. So it's it's just a bit different I mean I'm I'm used to having shields in a couple alignment is blockers. You know seven yards in front of me announced a little bit more open on. In also just the speed of the game you know everybody in the NFL super talented in you know the great players play hard so So I think that's you know that's the biggest difference is just you know talent all across the board it's just it's tremendous. So it's just a you know just just being ready in stain on my toes. Got Through Morris Adam Than Lynn go ahead. Tommy how you doing today in great you good. Thanks a couple of things real quick. First of all. You got here. Obviously that she said, Tar Newsom as well. What was it like when you heard that the chiefs of let him go and you're going to be the only guy left here in camp and number two claimed. Baltimore here in a few weeks if johnny sticks around, what's it to be like played against him for the first time I think right. Who Mom and dad gave you root for that day? Yeah. That's a good question Take. A couple of steps back to answer your first question I. Mean nothing really changes for me. I mean, I'm still preparing the same way. I'm still You know all my toes just trying to go out and perform the best I can just keep getting better every single day You know since like I said earlier, the NFL's completely different You know I'm just trying to learn as much as I can as fast as I can and continuing to progress in In, in everything I can do whether it's putting her know holding with a working on my holding with with James in Harrison in. So yeah. Just just trying to continue to move forward there. But yeah, I don't know we'll see what happens when it comes to to Baltimore I. Mean, I'm definitely excited for that I. Mean we we had a little bit of a little bit of that. Back in a back in twenty fifteen, I want to Tennessee my freshman year in a we traveled down and we played out Florida. So we I got to play against Johnny then So so that was that was a cool experience, but you know I'm excited to see what happens it. It wouldn't be a bad thing if I saw him on the field but I can't say my parents would. Go for either. Of US I'm not sure I think they'd be. Split between them. Both they're both tremendously supportive. So Hano, dad might be in one. Jersey might be the other who knows. Lynn Jennings the close out Atlan. Tommy Dave told talked to a couple of weeks ago about how you was on your you're on his radar during the combine, but he also talked about hose impressed with you working with James and Harrison how important has been for you to work with those guys and developing that relationship in in some of the things that you're benefiting from from James Harrison whiff you learn from most guys working with them. Yeah Yeah that that's been the biggest thing is just learning from them. You know they're they're both veterans in the NFL. Now they're both they've been superspy success will what they do So it's just yeah it's just sitting back and learning as much as I can when I can. I mean I talked to James Every day about what you know stuff that I can do differently when. ponting and same thing with talking to Harrison just trying to figure out what what I can do to. Help him out the most than a helping make make him the most successful kicker you know he can be So. Yeah. It's just you know it's it's a process of continuing to learn like I said as a rookie. So I'm excited to keep progressing and keep moving forward and you know take it into the season. Domino. We appreciate the time today. Thank you. Thanks. Appreciate it. Hey coach. Good to see you again. You've been working with Patrick since really the moment that you guys got the Kansas City. I'm curious in the film room. How have you seen him develop as someone that can evaluate evaluate sound, and is there any story that you can remember about an incident where Patrick saw something on film was able to apply it on the field? Yeah, that's a great question Pat. Pat Does a phenomenal job in the film room watching studying tape. Very, intricate details of of defenders enter indicators. A one one example that comes to mind was last year against Denver, they had brought one pressure. You know this, we were playing Denver late in late in the season they had brought pressure maybe. The early in the season and really it was only one time they had shown it and we had watched it. You know we'd watch throughout our blitz come up but them only bringing it at one time. Powell's able to diagnose nationally brought in a game I think we hit tyreek on the sideline one of them but he was able to at least see at co snap identify I get the ball out of his hands. And ended up being a big play. Big Dot conversation for us. Look Good A. Good. Morning Mike. I. Know a lot of folks outside the organization have kind of put a spotlight on. You is potentially being this. This next offensive coordinator candidate I I know that probably comes with a lot of flattery and yet you're honored for that I was just curious as you learn from Eric, the enemy and Co treed when you are able to finally get that opportunity what what type of things that have they shown you that will stick with you in that maybe he'll take on and when you get that chance. I think the most most important part is. The attention to details that coach me coach they bring to the offense. Really no detail is spared as far as what we WANNA do on offense from. The receiver room running back and tight ends quarterback. So it's very well thought out You know it sound to to the offense of mine and we put it into where we can give the quarterback answers and allow into play freely and Give. And kept ball carriers answers as well. You know. So we try to build that into the system and that's one thing I've learned since being here over the last several years. As being able to give the quarterback answers and give our skill players answers and within the offense. Threatened Petrograd Serene. Coach I'm curious what you know quarterbacks lose what what's what's the biggest loss they have 'em tickle your backup guys right. They're going to get a lot of the reps not having these preseason games. What's the part that becomes the most difficult to to either get them ready or to evaluate You know maybe a younger guy like town yeah. The the game, the game situations and being out there with the live bullets of is definitely the biggest part. For the It's everything's faster in the game, and so you really can't replicate that. To a certain extent practice, we try to whether it's drills or giving the quarterbacks. You know fast mental mental games and mental drills throughout practice to make them think fast and and shoot the ball fast. So you try and stimulate that as best you can throw practice. But at the other day one game game going and you know it's we're we're rolling on offense you gotta be able to make quick decisions. So there's It's tough to replicate and practice. Let's go or less to Nathan and Hervey coordinate. AM. I wanted to follow up with What Matt asked You earlier Being a former NFL quarterback understanding the awareness in the vision you have to have on the field whether it's watching film Patrick or this off season or just impersonal in live moments. Just what impresses you most about a Given, everything that's required from the quarterback position. Yeah I think I think Patrick's get to the point of the offense where he kind of knows. Whereas answers are he knows all the bones are buried on the play. So he's able to kind of anticipate the counter moves within the offense to where okay. If they're going to do that if defense does this. Kind of puts this play in a bind. Well, I know my answers to get out of it, and so I think that's where he's kind of grown the most from last year to this year and going going into this year really is really know where the bones are buried in the in the in the weak spots in the plays are. Go to hurry with the last one. Good. Hervey. Take him back to your playing career. You always had the opportunity around the likes of Tom Brady Adrian Peterson even J. Green Year stint Cincinnatian obviously, they're all mega superstar. You now have one in your own quarterback room and Patrick Mahomes what are some of the similarities for the mental makeup on on how they are able to handle The the spotlight hungry being a mega superstar. No I appreciate that question and to be fair I probably wasn't around those guys long enough to really give a great answer to speak on them personally but I think. The thing that pat brings is his competitive spirit is is is incredible He he I think he's he's able to lift and build up the guys that are in that huddle. Built himself up as well with confidence. I think that right there is Competitive Spirit of confidence spirit. That's that's what separates them, and that's what makes them great. I think. Let's face it.

Welcome back into from the podium we're finishing up with some chiefs assistant coaches we continue want which wide receivers coach Gregg Lewis. I wanted to ask you McCall Hartman when you guys departed for the off season. What kind of things did did you tell him that you wanted to see him in proven work on in the off season and how efficiently feel like he is not not that you've seen him in Training Camp I want him to work on just becoming bigger more explosive a obviously he was explosive last year, but he has more in them and just understanding all facets of the offense and he did a wonderful job this off season of doing those things and coming back prepared and ready to get to work. So I'm excited where he is right now and what was to come with. Go to peak twenty. GO AHEAD PETE Gordon coach. Curious about the system and I, know there is an emphasis put on learning each position in the offense and I like almost similar McColl how do you balance okay? We want you to learn every position but at the same time, really hone in on what might be something particular that you really want them to focus on. Well I it's a juggling act with all the receivers that are involved here. my big thing and we're coach preaches to me is make sure everybody knows every position because in a game situation, you never know who could go down and whatnot and we need to continue to put put guys in position to be successful. So understanding everything is big and then just technique wise. Just make sure everybody's on the same page and able to do the same things and some may be better than others, but we're able to get the job done with is out there. Let's go to Robert Winston go Robert. Coach, suppose Jodi Fortson is a guy that's had a great camp this year What do you think is the big difference was the biggest difference that you see between him last year and this year Understanding the offense jody came in as a tryout guy and we released them, and then he came back and this he was planning tied in any moved to receiver. So just really being able to focus on one position understanding what's going on with the offense at the receiver position that made it that's allowed him to play faster and play more physical and let his natural talents show and I think he done a tremendous job of that throughout this all season and of the through train camp does far He's a guy that that's a workaholic he wants to be great He's going to do everything possible to give yourself the best opportunity to be part of what we're doing. It's GonNa, threatened Petrograd in. Coach Sammy Watkins had a number of interviews during this off season and one of the things he said was the coaches want me to get a thousand yards. I'll get a thousand yards right What what how do you take that? When you when you hear that comment from from one of your players? What what do you think he means by that? What? What was your reaction hearing? That nothing I didn't have a reaction to it whatsoever I'm around. All the guys a lot I, know their personalities I I know how they act how they react to different situations and Sammy's attained guy just like every other senior within the group is team oriented in Sammy's called upon he's ready to answer the bill. It's Tyreek is called upon ready to answer the Bill Sandwich Dean Rob Sam McCall and on down the line with everybody that we have. So everybody in the NFL all players want to have success. That's why we're here. We're competitive and they WANNA be shown that way but at the End of the day, we're all team here and that's our guys approach it, and that's what they believe in and that's what got us where we were last year and last year is last year obviously but we had the same mentality of whatever it takes was to be successful. That's what I'm willing to do, and you saw it in the first game last year Zandi three hundred yards, and then in the playoffs he's he's dominating Each playoff series are each playoff game that we had. So when his numbers called, he's ready to answer. To more let's go Natan Than Adam. Coordinate. Greg One guy that. I'm sure you were real Dec- in have gotten about a week. Now, to get to evaluate as markets KIP he appear to be on his way to make him a roster before injury Just what are you most appreciate s what he's done to get back in what I've seen so far in this year's Cannes. Will you personally I was devastated so to speak when when Kim got hurt last year because he's got his were consistently every day since he's been here and he was having a tremendous camp last year I believe he was on his way to make it a team like you said, getting them back. It's been awesome and it's been awesome. He he knows everything he's a guy that works and is not any questions about anything he's going to be diligent with everything you has to do any brings a special teams value unlike any other. So it's exciting to have them be a part of the room again, and we'll see where it goes from there. To with the last one. Good at him. And Greg wanted to ask you about tyreek and what's the next frontier for him what are there areas of his game you want to see him expand as opposed to maybe just general improvement from last year to this year? Well, I mean, he didn't get all the last year and he has some. And Whatnot, and now he has a full all season. So to speak, would would everybody else has and training camp going I think that he's right where he needs to be his mentality is continuing to get better and progress and dominate at a high level and I think he's doing that with his work ethic in the classroom and then in the. Training Room in the way room and then on the field, and it's all translated to positive place for him when he gets those opportunity so I'm excited to where he is I, see growth and development I've seen each and every year that we've been together, which is positive and I'm just looking forward to the next step for him developing and becoming. More of a dominant player. I was curious about Antonio Hamilton and now that you guys have been able to work with him for a few weeks, you see him more as an inside guy or an outside guy. Maybe a little bit of ball just was wondering evaluation. You know since two Hamilton has been here. He's very smart. You know we talked to a lot of people where where he came from the giants and just understanding that his his strong points but you know right now we're us limited in multiple roles. You know we use them on the inside we're using on the outside because he's had done both. In his career so you know just trying to find the best pieces to the puzzle the put out there on the football field. So we can win some games, but he's definitely going to have opportunity to be able to help us to in multiple positions and you know that was something the same thing that Kendall Fuller was able to do last year. Let's go to Steve All scored Steve. Hey coach. Steve. What's happening now? Much man. With everything that's going on. Wayne yesterday and today teams boycotting for change causing gangs be cancelled across sports and some NFL teams cancelling practice being a black coach Pro Sports with you to come in today and also have someone to conversations have been like within the last twenty four to forty eight hours. Yeah. You look at his team and you know just plan on the coach Ryman. I tip my hat off to coach. He really you know open up, you know the the locker room as well as the the coaching staff you know to be able to communicate about this issue and just seeing what in the NBA players don't around the National Football League just listening to our players, our leaders who who we have a number of guys on this roster that you know put their best foot forward. Over the last couple of months really to to talk about this issue I. It just something that we're open to where very open to understanding and making sure that we're doing the right things and making sure the guys are able to express themselves about the situation. So you know 'cause really been really good about that and and the players they're definitely doing their due diligence and. Making the right decision for our football team. But as a whole as a group as one playing in this league for for twelve years in the past, I really tip my hat off to these young guys you know for really taking step four against the organizations understanding and finally seeing the things that we've been able to talk about over the last fifty, sixty years and now. Starting to come to the forefront. So does really hope that you know as a country you know continue to pray and hopefully you know be a one accord. But as of right now you know our players, they're doing their due diligence coach read is giving them the opportunity in the platform to be able to do that and be able to express themselves as well. He's got a great. A Sam. Really. Appreciate this man I have two questions for you. One is about he seems just improve. Since the moment he sort of came to you guys just want to see from him in his growth in the secondly sort of following up with what you just said. You know I, know coaches given guys the ability to communicate what they, WanNa. Do on opening night if guys choose to express themselves or to choose to do something similar to what we've seen over the last week, what do you want bands and just the general public? No. About the men that you see every day before they make such a gesture I go. Yeah. I'll talk about fitting. Right I. You know since we're short has come here from South Carolina Year you know late round draft pick you know he's just been working extremely hard. You saw later on in the season Co spags was able to develop him and allow him. You know to play special teams but yet and still continue to put him a position where we played him a lot of nickel last year. And we did move him out to the corner a little bit and he he plays some there. So you know coming into this camp, you know he knew is that role being able? He was going to be a dual guy. So you know he's playing faster you know, and now have an opportunity to mix them in with the ones the twos playing corner plan Nikolas wouldn't a lot on his plate but yet and still making sure that he understands that he's going to be needed in those. Roles later on during the season. So you know with him he he is working hard every single day. I. Really like his work echoed ethic that he's putting in he's making some place. He's around the ball, his quickness he he shows some burs throughout the course of this camp. So he did a lot of work on the off season and we just going to put them in the best position to be able to make plays for us, and you know to answer your second question You know whatever it is guys come up come up with throughout whatever they do. In the first game you know coach Reid is definitely going to be open to it. We will have discussions that we have team meetings where we're opening up and having guys had the opportunity to communicate and talk about the issues. and. So look for Diet to be on the same page and throughout the course of the day when when the cameras are off and these guys are working you know is is a one team. You know these guys throughout the course of the last. Couple of months. Last couple of weeks these guys have been communicating. You could see them sitting around the dinner table around the lunch table having discussion. So that is really good. They're having these discussions and both sides understanding where they're coming from but you know they're doing a really good job and with the issues and but yet, and still coming here getting good work but still doing work behind the scenes of what's really going on in today's world in our society. Go to hurry hurry. Echo pleasure to see you what's up herb how are you? I'm well, thanks. I don't see the pine trees in the background there. Yeah we back in camp found. A couple of days ago we watch Jerry sneed stay with tyreek hill deep down the field, and if you remember that he was able to turn around and knock a pass away last minute. With the exception of his his obvious speed what are you seeing Jerry assume That makes you think that this guy could potentially contribute immediately if he's called upon. Man Does, looking at him as a young player and just trying to make sure that we develop him because we any guy that comes into this training camp that came into this camp we're looking for them to be able to help us down the road and you know jared he's picking up the Lingo is he picking it up as fast as we want to know? But he is working at it, and at this point, you know he's feeling comfortable. So like I said before being able to rotate him in with the ones with the tools when you're with the ones, the ones all they do is communicate Tire Matthew he tells everybody what to do. He knows what he's supposed to do and having somebody communicate those things to you that quickly. Now, you can go out and play fast I didn't have to work. We didn't have to work on him with his foot speed or would his quickness being aggressive at the line of scrimmage he came with those tools after being able to watch films and the scouts you know put an ad in front of us enforce about opportunity to make a decision to be able to. Bring him in. So with that, you know just having the opportunity to put him in those positions to understand you know the speed of college versus the NFL in having to do it over and over you don't have to go to class anymore. This is your class work every single day. So being in that playbook being an IPAD, understanding the different calls and the different situations. That, coaches trying to put you in as well as code reporting in those situations and then going out and executing. So you know to be able to see him run down veal in for when he was at the combine, have an opportunity to talk to Him and knowing what he likes to do. You know it just was a pretty good match for us. So he just got to do it every single play every single day and just learn how to become a pro and the national football league. Our guys we've got run out of time and we'll get to more up. Let's go serandon an atom going. The coach. Thank you for the time like dovetail off what Taylor was talking about their about the players in demonstration. Bill O'Brien the Houston Texans earlier in the summer said. If his players choose to kneel, he will neal. What what will you personally do have has there been discussions as a coaching staff as an organization about whether there's going to be we're all in this together a support you you said, they will all be together when you're talking to the players, but the organization be there and be of art of any demonstration or. Didn't mean to cut you on your good coach read like I said one of the best coaches in national football league and he's giving these guys the platform. To be able to open up able to express themselves you know at this time. So whatever the the the organization meaning, the players, the coaches, the administration they choose, and we're going to be one we're going to be together on all the issues that's going on right now. So once we get to that point read is GonNa. Sit Down they have meetings with the with the with the player players, group and I'm pretty sure they have those communications and coach will definitely lamb to us and I believe every last one of these coaches on this culture stab will be INC in Being solidarity whatever the players choose, and just like did watching these guys throughout the course of the day you know on the practice field off the practice fill in the locker room in the training room they have a lot of respect for one another and you know just having it like I said, before planning his league, you know you always have your brothers back and I think everybody will be on one court. So we'll doesn't wait to see exactly what these guys want to do, and then I'm pretty sure the coaches will follow as well as the organization as well. Let's go to Adam for the last one. They say I, WanNa ask you about of a short and obviously you guys, GonNa losing him here a little bit. What's your advice for him for those four weeks between the time his suspension starts in that time he can rejoin you guys on just keep his mental in check. You know last year we had a guy as well in that that was. In a similar situation and religion is looking back on what he did. He was always engaged with the players being able to have opportunity to give them those little tidbits up what they should and what they shouldn't. Because we have a lot of young guys out there that's going to be playing that. Don't how many years in the League so we're going to need to his. Veteran presence and his voice, just as much as if he was here. So you know for him just continue to stay in shape because once he do come back, we're expecting him to come back and be that veteran presence be able to come in and help us out. So on a continual basis just want him to come out there be a leader like he's been. So far, and helping these young guys because he knows that his reps are going to be limited, he's continued to get his work on the side and and staying after practicing, getting, running, and so he's doing all the right things knowing that you know that this is a merit on just nodded sprint and he understand because he's been through it last year before. So Just being there mentally for our young guys but yet, and still keep his mental in in check as well in knowing that he is a part of this organization, but he just has a four game suspension. He's go. He's going to have to do it and we're GONNA hold him down until he comes back. We appreciate your time. Thank you. Thank you. Guys have a great day you to. Waster joining US eight how you doing well doing well I. Know you are. Not, technically into Texas we just yet as we got some camp for looking at the tape of last year, knowing the Texas personnel, knowing how you're trying to work with Willie gay is specific sub package. Maybe you don't want to give away mess what it is, but is there a certain sub package or role that you think you may be able to? Contribute on only honest with you were in the very preliminary preliminary deal with the Texans and were careful not to flip the script too quick. You know what I mean because two reasons one we're still we're still evaluating we're still competing to improve and to we don't want to get stale by getting into it too quick. So we're still working through that process. Touch goodson. Coach, I'm curious how much you lose not You know I I, know you guys. There's a little bit of one what the other side doing right when the offense stops and says, hey, run it again and all that guys can kind of cheat a little bit. You get to know your opponent when you play them every single day. So how much do you lose in the evaluation process not getting to go up against team you don't know what they're doing their personnel. Yeah. I think you definitely lose the aspect of. Guys reacting but that's one of the advantages of going against our offense day in and day out there. So multiple. they do so much and they challenge your is. they challenge you with different personnel, groups, multiple formations, shifts, emotions so to be honest with you were very fortunate. To be able to compete against that offense as compared to some teams. GonNa Adam Thais Regard Adam. He man how you doing today. Good. How are you man? Good. Wanted to ask you about Darius Harris sincere didn't practice for you guys all last year. What have you anything you've learned about him in the few weeks of practice you've had you seen him now and practice field. Yeah. I think he's you know he's like some of the other young guys he's trying to knock some rust off. At the beginning and as as we've got into camp, he's slowly gotten better and better every day You know certainly for guy that hasn't played in a year there's there's some. Pains, but he's definitely improved throughout the camp. Sweeney. Morning Coach had. A question regarding? Your mic linebackers it'd been mentioned among the staff with spags that Willy Gay would be working as the backup Sam and I was wondering who among your younger guys might be fit for for more of that micro. Well, you know the one thing that we try to do is we try to train those guys multi roles because especially in the situation we're in right now you don't know who's going to be up and who's going to be down. You know hitch in Ben of the majority of microbes but we've we've wrapped a variety of guys in that position just in case that we forced into that that realme things and we've been in a game week, we got adapt and adjust. We've got two more questions, guys. Let's go Herbie and then Matt. Hurry. It coach. Katrina said last week to the the biggest thing he seeing on a Ben Nima is. Some last year this year is a strength. What are some of the things you're seeing out of been as we get ready to close out Cam because he's been? Out there. Yeah. I gotTa agree with coach strength and then also just the confidence I think last year Z. developed a bigger and bigger role grew more confident in this year being in a second year doing similar things his competences improved. Derek had. Hey. Matt. Good to see again I how are you? Good. Up with Herbie about been even. His show lots ability for even being able to play multiple positions. How valuable is that and how to have a guy like that behind ish that can be your quarterback out there I think it's huge one.

Is the fate of Big Tech starting to come into focus?

"This marketplace podcast is supported by we work today takes new ways of working new measures toward health and safety dedicated to flexible terms and purposefully designed spaces. See what's ahead for we work at Weei DOT CO slash future. Hey, thanks to you. We met our fall fundraising goal. Cheers to all of the listeners and marketplace investors who make our work possible. Your support goes a long way toward helping marketplace, raise the economic intelligence of the country. Thank you. Could big tech companies get broken up in the style of the old Ma Belle. I'm David Brancaccio. There is intense scrutiny on Capitol Hill. Now on what to do about big tech companies overly big say some lawmakers a House subcommittee is wrapping up a year long investigation and details are beginning to leak marketplace's Nancy Marshall Genzer in Washington Nancy. What do we know so far? We'll David the house, Judiciary Committee's antitrust subcommittee held seven hearings over the past year at you may remember they had the CEOS of Apple Amazon Google and facebook in the same room testifying at one point in committees finish up an investigation they she reports and there's one from the majority. In this case, the Democrats and one from the minority Republicans. The majority report isn't out yet but the minority report was leaked and I gotta look at it. It was written by Republican Congressman Ken Buck of Colorado he agrees with some of the majority's conclusions that the big tech companies by startups to kill off competition and used their power to quote control how we see and understand the world. But there's also disagreement absolutely congressman buck says these problems can be solved by beefing up existing antitrust enforcement agencies. He doesn't like proposals to eliminate arbitration clauses or suggestions that Congress scaled-back these companies. This matters because of Congress is so inclined to can take this far. Congress can break companies apart remember what happened with at and T. David. The government divided it up into eight different firms back in the nineteen eighties. Them were days thanks nets. The stock market is mixed in early trading the Dow up sixty one, two tenths percent. The Nasdaq is down four tenths percent the S. and P. Five hundred is down two points but ten and thirty year longer bonds fallen in recent days with yields upbringing the benchmark ten year interest rate up to zero point seven, eight percent the highest since June, let's bring in Geoffrey Geoffrey Cleveland is chief economist Payden and Regal in L. A. Hi there. Good Morning. David the grand scheme of things long term interest rates are still like vanishingly small, but there's been an uptick on the ten year yield thirty years well. I think there are a few things brewing one I would suggest is that the economic recovery is continuing and you know in the old days would would've said, okay, economic recovery is happening interest rates should be rising sort of things we've together that has been disconnected if you will by the Federal Reserve promising and pledging to keep interest rates low four years to come. The other thing that's brewing I think is capitol. Hill. If we get additional fiscal relief I think you could ask David, how are they going to pay for that and the answer would be issuing more bonds and as investors if you're going to issue a boatload of more securities, well, we want higher interest rates to to compensate for that we want more yield and so that pushes up interest rates all else, equal.

We call from the podium where you get to hear directly from your Kansas City chiefs on the editor in chief of Arrowhead pride dot com Pete Sweeney Wednesday again, which means the chiefs are back to practice and preparation of their next opponent this week. That's The New York jets on Wednesday. We got to hear from chiefs head coach, Andy, Reid quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, tight end, Travis Kelsey, and Safety Dan Sorenson so on the front half this bad cast, you'll hear from moms and read, and then we'll take a quick break and you'll get to hear from Kelsey and Sorenson. Right now here is the chiefs head coach Andy, Reid as far as practice goes. Armani watches sick. You won't practice today shorts and Sammy Watkins are getting better but. A little practice today so Far, the job to plan. The jets. Football Team, well, coach and. We've. Again, we've got a good week of practice. Time. Go. First Dan Smith go there. and. Coach good morning to you you. Obviously, election day is coming up next week just your thoughts your causing Godson on when. Lewis success what's wrongdoing with the water that under started find in using earlier? As a location location does Tuesday. Yeah. So let's I am proud of our guys for. Having the wherewithal to come up with. A plan and then for our organization Clark Hunt. Mark Donovan to. Work with them to get it done and I mean, you don't see that all the time. So that that respect for the for the players and the players respect for our ownership I think is. Very, important. To have and so. To actually have it here. On campus per se but right here narrow hit I think is a tremendous tribute to all the were involved in getting it done. Going to Sam McDowell Good Sam. And you've obviously had a lot of guys play against her former teams jus just generally speaking you feel like you get a little bit extra guys when when applying against team the cut him. I I suppose. I I. Don't know that. I, think what's a? Once, a wissel blows and it's time to start I think he kind of put that. In the back of your mind if that was kind of your plan, you just you're playing, you play the best of your ability and. That's what that's what you end up doing so. anyways. That's that's where I just. Haven't done it for a couple of years of watching guys go through it Think that's what happens. Next to hurry T P buttery. Includes morning off the football field. City. City is making a push to lure Toronto. Here if you can make a pitch to the rappers, a White Kansas, city would be unique for them. What would it be? Well I mean it's a phenomenal sports town I guess are really dumb and. Not The Toronto's not I'm not. Saying. that. they're good people. I've been. Toronto too so but I believe we'd love to have you and let's go. Let's roll. November sports place in right here. It's going to make Taylor coordinate. Andy I know we're getting travis here in a little bit. I wanted to ask you just in terms of production consistency. Even. Improving has a run blocker from when he started just were you most impressed with what Travis is done the season so far? He's obviously I can play player pro pro bowl player, all pro player recordholder, all those things but every day he comes to work and that's the part I liked the best and he tries to get better at his game I mean he diligently works with PAT diligently works with Tom in the run game ask questions wants to get right all those things I mean And Wants to be the best I can appreciate that absolately. Next Petro. Coach I know. Breast the guy that's that's Lynn you know looking around what's going on in the league but just in general. Teams are much more aggressive. It seems that the trade deadline now that. Ten years ago it was like, Hey, we you know it's too far gone. We can't fit him into our scheme. They can't learn what we're doing but more and more we're seeing guys do that why? Why do you think it is? That guys are now able to change teams in season and be effective or is it just about maybe young general managers like Brett beach that are much more aggressive than maybe the old guard. Might Be I. You know I'm not. That's a good question though Sir and I think just with the way free agency sets up, but it's world today and the salary cap I think people are a little bit more flexible you have to be with bringing people in letting people go and So I think just time here. That's. ENDED UP causing people to be a little bit more aggressive and feel more comfortable bringing people in but. I, I can't tell you the success rate right off the top of my. mind here but I could I could tell you before free agency wasn't a high success rate I. Can't tell you what it is bringing is in. On the trades but I it seemed like it might be even a little bit more successful than true free agency. We've got two more questions we'll go with. and. Tommy Boca. Good. Morning coach since he arrived in Kansas. City. Le Vian. has just been really I think outward with. He is to be here near is how has he been a fit inside the locker room and why is Kansas City been such a good fit for him. Well I think the offense fits him and I mean he gets his. And what he does best show up You. Know in this offense he can. He can see before you got here and then he had a chance to show here the other day so. I think that for a player that's a positive thing and I can't tell you how he felt one to New York I don't know that. So but I think he with ours he could it and We you know we put them to work. So I think that's what he wanted. He wants to he wants to play. And I. Think He. He Clyde a good combination right there they. He's a good person and we have daryl too so. You don't you don't forget about Darrell who's a good football player to and And so it all works out. You know well for for us in that position. Go to Toledo with the last one. Good tough. Coach from the outside people will look and say the jets don't have a chance. You Know Twenty one point underdogs best up haven't won a game when you address the team, what do you tell him about the jets that's dangerous and how what about their scheme or their personnel can can provides endanger to you guys this week. So. This league is Is been all about parody that's what the league strive for. And so it's never as good as you think never as bad as you think. whether striven by. The gambling or whether it's driven by the media, you know whatever it's driven by the PR- present those numbers I don't pay attention to them I, but I you mentioned them to me. So I I go off of what I see on tape I go off of it every week somebody gets picked off. That was one of these favorites or whatever, and so you go back and you focus on your agenda. And you study the opponent you respect the opponent and then you get yourself right to make yourself get better every week and if you lose focus on that, then you have a problem in this league. There's just these are good football players and coaches, and so that's in the world right as you look at it. So you you don't lose focus on that. Patrick just a question off the football field and I know you took the social media and they made a pitch somewhat to Toronto Raptors. But with the city yesterday, not making a fool pitch, what was your sales pitch be the raptors to come here? I mean, obviously can't say it's a great spot for any franchise to be at. If you look at the support that the royals have a chief sporting KC and everyone else at plays out here I mean the fan base is crazy and they and they love sports they love the be here in. Just down the road at Lawrence and you see the way the hawks they pack out that place every single week that you know that The t mobile center whatever be a great spot for any basketball. Franchise, to be up. Next to Adam Tyson go down. Patrick. I want to ask you something you said after the game you made reference to yourself as the young Patrick would've force the ball down or do you remember talking about a certain play in the Denver game and wanted to ask you now that you're an old man you think there'd be a lot of plays that you'd look back at from your early early in your career the first few games and say boy I wouldn't do that now or you think there wouldn't be a lot of places like that and Brad have one quick follow up to. Yeah, we'll to answer your question I. Think There's plays when I watch back I mean he watched by games me playing early in my career there's some throws of that I I wouldn't have made because they were done decisions at the time, but there's some throws that I hope that I still do make. Play with that fine line of being aggressive as you possibly can but not being overly aggressive and so. I try to look back on every every experience and learn from it, and I think there's a lot of positive of long as negatives I can learn from. Okay and on the second matter. The jets showed some interest in you when you were coming out in the draft if I'm not a steak and you went up there for a visit before the draft. They had a one of the top ten picks that year did you feel like they were serious? Did you feel like there was a significant chance? You might be going to New York. Yeah definitely there was interest there I mean whenever you get those those visits you know that they're pretty interested in doing their due diligence. So I mean I, definitely, there was interest there but. At the time they drafted a great player Jamal Adams and I mean, you can't can't really argue with that one. It's going to skirt a good day. This is sort of an oddball question to but. Curious, who in the paint off your dog's feet on the gender of year and kind of more. Importantly, why is it important for you to? Put yourself out there for your hands in the public away from the field in your fiance too for that matter. Yeah well, the pain I it was like this water base paint I guess that they got that was very easy to clean. It wasn't it didn't affect the dog Britney's pretty pretty mom like already with those dogs, you don't want anything happening in happening to them that way and then for me. It's just it's just being who I am and I want people to show that I'm just a normal guy just like everybody else I just I just get the play football, the Kansas City chiefs, but I'm pretty normal off the field. Sweeney good. Patrick. So obviously, with the records you guys away better record right now the New York jets just what ways are you saying on top of guys? That's the loudest voice to make sure we don't overlook this game. I think people understand that in this league, you can't overlook anybody. I mean if you watch the tape and they'll look at the record, you understand that this is a good football team two team where a lot of guys who are making a lot of plays and they have a lot of guys made plays and other spots on other other teams, and so you understand that it's GonNa be a great challenge for us, and we have to go out there and play our best football. If we WANNA win and I think that's An overstatement that's that's true and how this league works. Darren Smith good there. Bedrick, first of all congratulations on your tiling people registered about. Again. Arrowhead of the polling location later, a question for you that I have a follow but have you had a chance to get out and vote you. Election. Day and then also what does success look like for you the entire what you ought to? Follow. Yeah we'll. We'll first off thanks and then second off I have gotten to to vote and I got to send my vote in absentee voting. And everything like that, and then for for I, think for US tonight, success is the continue to move forward. We actually are going to be able to meet with mark here either this week or this next week, and the continue to strive to get more black owned businesses support that they need and I. Think it's the continue to get the conversation going up until election day, and then even past that with different things that we can help out the community with and so I mean, it happens made people. Vote is obviously the first the first step of right now how important this election is. But but the next step is to continue to help our community and help out the people that need need help the most and I'm glad you said it could that was where I was going would in re in regards to everything happens for a reason we had the economy. Shut down due to cold. We saw what happened to George floated. Obviously. You got a chance to speak gotTA support a black lives matter what an had to happen if you would have had the ripple effect that we got right now with you support. You don't avoid anything again you mentioned. The third. What? The you know how do you plan to continue? You'll have your you're watching your platform to affect change not only an African Americans many committee at. which will Yeah I think the biggest thing is keeping the conversation going and then going out and taking action and I think with with this mean that we have with mark has he's already had a lot of great ideas that he's learned from people in the community that are out there firsthand making and making change happen and we'll be able to as the chiefs organization go in with these with our players and do whatever we can to help improve an impact those communities and and help out as many people as possible. The temper couple more guys will donate learn. Sarim Petro. Good Nate Patrick? That, Travis. Right, now in terms of receiving yards for titans, but I'm wondering when you watch the tape of your teammates, just what comes to mind beyond just catching the football in receiving yards yeah. I. Mean. He he does it all I mean I think you've seen it more and more as as we haven't had term these last few weeks he's really stepped up blocking and and being that got guys blocking. From the backfield to do and stuff like that, and he just he's hard for defense to account for, and so when you have tyreek and travel and these guys can get mismatches for other guys it helps the entire offense and I think that stuff kind of whenever you don't see these huge receiving yards, some games you don't understand how much they're impacting the game by being the players they are. Glycerin Petro. Goodson. A Patrick and talked a lot about taking the what the defense gives you. That's been kind of a theme in how teams have been playing in. You just said earlier that you know they're so throws air that you hope you'll make right the the bad ones you want to get away with you know there's some throws there. How much do you remind yourself is is It a process of now's the time to take some risks like we're down which Miguel much this year obviously. But now now's the time to risks versus like maybe happened to settle yourself remind yourself that, hey, we're up big or you know everything's going well, how much is there like an internal conversation about risk reward I mean it's it's before every single drive is for. Every single play you have to know what how the game flow is Do you have momentum in your favor if you have a big league or if it's tight football game and yet to make those decisions, split-second decisions and decide if you WANNA take that risk or if you want to take the check down and just try to do what you can to. Keep the chains moving and it's a battle that I have with my nature I want to take the risk every single time, but games like the other day. When we were up a lot of points on, you've got to realize that don't have to take that risk whenever whenever your your defense is playing like they are doing what they, what they do and so. Whenever we whenever we get these type situations, I'm sure I'll be able to take the risk and be able to flip the right back around. We appreciate the time. Thank you. Thank you.

Twenty. You just heard from chiefs head coach Andy Reid, and quarterback Patrick mahomes continue on with chiefs tight end Travis Kelsey. Travis A. Happy Wednesday everybody. Without we'll get started with nate Taylor coordinate. Good to see a travis Actually Patrick just mentioned this but. I know you would love to have Sherman out there with you in the huddle and on the field but given his situation what was it like to go to the game plan involving buffalo to be sort of that fullback h back back? Oh, blocking in and how much pride you taking excelling at that everybody knows how good draw receiver. I. Mean IT'S A. At the tight end position you're asked to do so many things play a lot of different positions essentially as you'll see, me split out wide singled up like a wide receiver. Liking the buffalo game in previous games, you see me in the backfield. I've also played in line tied into the to the kind of like the h back tight end. or The adjusters, we call it in this offense It's where you just kind of move me around and put me anywhere but it's It's prideful man it's I'm technically the utility guy on the field whether you need a plumber electrician man I'm here for you and and whatever the coaches and the and the guys on this team need me to do I, feel like I you know throughout the week I hone in on those fundamentals. I, focus in on on on my job and what I have to do to help make this this offense click and whether it's playing fullback playing white outer getting back there and running a wildcat and playing qb I'm ready for it all and I get excited for it all and it's a it's thanks to my coaches for giving me the opportunity to to. Showcase my skills like that. It's going to break her good. Travis the plumber electricity role is something that's evolved or have. You always felt that way Of tight end positions always been that guy. Home. Over the course of the probably the last ten years i. kind of mentioned this the other day to somebody who was it was I think two thousand eleven, two, thousand, thirteen where A. Gronkowski Jimmy Graham had those had like the the blow up year where they both had thirteen hundred yards or twelve hundred yards and a over ten, ten, twelve touchdowns a piece. I. Think Ron had like seventeen that year. had. One of the best years ever as a tiny that really brought attention to the position in a in a and what it didn't league wide and in the college in the college ranks is a it made offenses. Think that. Hey, I gotta I gotTa Athletic Guy I head and put him in these positions and have some success and is just east just keeps evolving more and more every single year and You know it's just it's it's it's a prideful thing. You know if if the more I can do is to help the team the more I want to help the team and this is the mentality that you have. It's going to St walls with these. Drives. Coach. said that last week. He said last week. Clad and levy on or like thunder and lightning. See these guys together which one is thundering, which one is like. I was just trying to differentiate the two men that both Kinda got a the the dual threat thunder lightning package man and it's It's just the ultimate weather storm out there and you end you with the different types of runs that we have built, inform both You know they can give you that one two punch or they can give you the thunder lightning whichever one you want on that play and It's just a to have a two headed monster back there, and then you throw in D Williams Darryl in in in. In an Andre throw all those guys in there. We got one heck of a a running back room in you know as a blocker that gets you excited man you got somebody that could take it to the House any point any point game man you want to make sure that you get your Guy that much more. Handful we'll right down the line starting with Harold Harold. Travis to part here I was watching inside the NFL last night Ray Lewis Brandon Marshall Discuss Titans is being divas, but the smartest onto fill that just want to know your thoughts on what they had to say about that. Also, a Patrick Mahomes has just mentioned You know he might try to put more into black owned businesses I. Know you've been invested into community as well after of course, next Tuesday when everything. Arrowhead Stadium and voting is done your last thoughts on that and what's next for you guys pushing for adult community. Well to to answer the last question I think everyone kind of just has to take a role in and find their lane and find what they feel comfortable with. What I tend to feel more comfortable with is attacking the youth and making sure that systemic. Racism. Is is eliminated and and try and give the advantages to the inner city onto a lot of the minorities that don't have those advantages and don't have that much. Effort being given to them, you know at our focus being given to them on. That's why you see me out in Kansas City area trying to help out the kids as much as I can and trying to hit these the areas that have poverty and. to move on to the to the in question in this offense, you definitely have to be smart football player no matter what position you're playing and the tight end position tends to get moved around a lot more than others which means you got to be that much more locked into the game plan of what we're trying to get done in terms of divas. I think I think there's a lot of personality in the tight end room you get both the the being electric in an enjoying having the ball in your hands. But then at the same time you gotTa have his physicality to to be able to get after somebody in the run game and and yeah, you'll you'll see a lot of personality in the tight end Rousseau I necessarily say I disagree but. I I appreciate them at least acknowledging smart football players. Going to Adam Tyson Glenn. Travis, it seems like you have a better thing going in the red zone maybe you've had in the past just wondering is there's some you can put your finger on there as far as why maybe that connections better in the red zone this year Brown will have a quick follow up as well. I think I think a lot of is just having the right mindset, the right focus And just being on the same page. It is what it is. I've I've I've been plays where I haven't been in the in the in the right place at the right time and this year it's just. Making sure that I finished drives the right way and and and being there for my quarterback and making plays when the ball is in the air that's the biggest thing is when you get the opportunity, you gotTa make that play and You know what I think this yours just been that much more of doubt in in in that much more successful because it. Also have a chance to talk to you since the game, but you were unhappy on social media after that game you kind of blamed yourself for for what happened that day? Why were you so unhappy with yourself? What what what do you feel like? You did that day or didn't do that day well Definitely have moved past it is I still get frustrated watching that film toward later towards the game I got a little frustrated trying to make more out of a play than what it was and I was running routes that that that weren't called and then I I screwed the team doing it stuff that you won't see on film. You won't see on the stats but something that that I take that took personal and it was just me being frustrated and trying to be there for my quarterback. Doing the right things which I wasn't doing and and and I gotta play within the system and and and run the place that are called You know we have a lot of freedom in this offense to try and kind of go out there and make plays and it's it's it's it's it's a it's history of having success. You know sometimes it works in you know at that point the game I just It's a there was no leeway. To I couldn't do that and I screw the team because in the ended up path throwing pick in the ball going all the way down to the two yard line and You know what It It put two-point to score game sixteen points. It's not just A to score game. You got to put up to extra her two point versions and things like that. So it's just You know learning even though as year for me still trying to make sure I'm not doing too much into being myself in helping teams that are hurting the team. The last Tom Liberal and Saran? Good. Travis how do you avoid overconfidence when you have a team like the jets have one coming in what ways are they dangerous and what are you have to be aware got to focus on ourselves. That's the biggest thing and I think we can take that from every game that we played this year is that when we play to our our ability when we we let the game come to us and we don't try and do You know too many things offensively or trying to go above and beyond we have all the players that we need we got. We got the best weapons in the National Football League right here in this building, and when you have that plus the the quarterback, they can swing it around in a and and get the ball in everybody's hands and make the right place and make the right decisions on. You know you just gotTa kind of trust the Justice scheme entrust what you're doing is good enough and play play your tail off and as long as we focus on ourselves and how we play the game of, football, got got a lot of confidence will go in and take care of business. With the last one. Good. Travis lot of conversation about how defenses are playing you guys that they're wanting to take the top away and Patrick's been you know making a smart decision and taking what they're giving them and everything but your your numbers. Are Typical Travis Kelsey numbers right very good numbers. What are they doing anything different that they're doing to you or why you're you're still putting up the the normal numbers We got a lot of weapons and you gotTa, you have to be able to cover everybody you can't You can't just focus in on one guy because pats known for for moving the ball around and getting into everybody's hands and I. Think. You know a lot of that has to do with the playcalling and and and the design of the schemes weekend and week out to put us all in positions to succeed and I think from there. It's just you know. Kind of getting lucky with with what the defense is presenting and and you know just being there for pat whenever the void is airing the balls in the air. Transport appreciate the time. Thanks for joining us our guys ever going. It Dan you've lit up the dirty Dan reputation recently. Had some flair to it. Recently, one headed interceptions tackles the other day against Denver just I guess general what's kind of gotten into your play recently, you really you really stood out. So what what's really got into you and entire Matthew said you study alive your student of the game he deserved. So what do you think of those comments as well? It's. A law goes to the leadership on the team got tiring in our coaches that just. To push ourselves during the week during practice in the study hard and to to practice hard and you know you know those plays in place. The other guys make their just a reflection of the hard work that everybody puts in during the week. Couldn't. Dance he been here a while now. What's your favorite thing about the secondary right now this year. we're probably as close of a unit as I've ever experienced my seven years and a lot has to do with You'll guys coming back. We've got the same. You know pretty much secondary that that we had last year for the most part and You know we know each other really well, we've been playing together for a long time a lot of games now and I think you know there's a lot of continuity their. Next to Taylor. Dan Why do you think Steve Spagnolo is a good coach or better yet a good teacher in terms of related information for that weeks upon us. Yeah, he's very detailed and I love his meetings It's just packed full of information He feeds us as much as as as we need and you never feel like you're unprepared going into a week or practice because their preparation, the coaches preparation, and the way that they they teach it to us is is the best that I've I've ever had and You know when you when you have a coach like Steve Spagnolo that that's willing to do that and you've got players that are willing to put in the time to to learn and into digest what he's what he's teaching and coaching us Then you've got a recipe for success. It's GONNA be Sweeney A similar vein to Nate's question you've been here for seven years. As you mentioned, what do you think that we're a year and change into tyrant being here? What is he injected into both the defensive broom and then the defensive backs room? There's a lot of that that that the tyrant does One is his energy. I. Think that's the one thing that probably stands out the most is he has the ability to create this energy and it's contagious. It's something that rallies everybody on defense you WANNA be a part of it you you grow from it everybody leans off it and then his football intelligence is off the charts He's a very intelligent football player, very smart his understanding of the game, and so that is able to translate to other players on the team as as we get to play around him, it elevates everybody's game. It's GONNA advertiser. Again I'm. Is it zone area? You feel like that? You can grow. You mean team the chiefs can grow on defense in other words, Zahren area where you feel maybe you guys are right around the corner from making an improvement. Yeah there's there's probably a lot of things that that we are still chasing in improving You know things we really Liked the idea of being a stout Defensive Team as far as stopping the run. and so that's something that we're going to be chasing and we're always going to be trying to improve week in week out and then always you know it all comes down two points right for the defense s that's all that matters. Right is points on the scoreboard in. So know just keeping those those points. low enclosing games out. You know you can play good defense for three quarters right and have the game in hand but still don't want most points to creep up on the scoreboard in in. So things like that were always chasing. But you know within the skiing you know it's it's always you're chasing improvement for self for mastery of the scheme There's a lot of things that were chasing to improve weekend. Scholastic Petro Goes. Hero. Quick. When I get done Dan. Deepens got so much better over the last two years. You guys are playing with confidence. You know how much does that you know is it the confidence comes first and then he played better as the playing better and how good you guys has been really since mid season last year when everybody got healthy is that what what feeds on which which one seems to come I? I think confidence comes from the hard work that you put in and so. You know that's what we try, and do we week out we have a solid Wednesday Thursday Friday practice in solid preparation and film study and everybody's locked in that. That's the confidence that we carry into the game and then that obviously translates. Into you know production and and playing well, and so I think I think it even goes a step further to say it's it's the the work in the preparation that the ultimately you know produces the success on the field. And I I remember a long time ago Brian Waters told me hey, listen no matter what's called? We gotta run it right so we're GONNA even a bad play we're GONNA run a bad play and everybody being in on a bad play better than everybody trying to freelance and do their own thing. But he said when a coach that gives you a chance to succeed you're much more committed. To it I'm just curious does that you know these seemingly is kind of call the shots he said, Hey, in training camp last said judges in the second half. That's when it's all going to come together it all came together this year and can't be saying things like you know the next is for takeaways we gotta take the ball away more your second takeaways. How much how much is these back? And His whole coaching staff, right and their ability to make sure that they're maximizing what you guys do and put in a position to succeed how much does that add to the confidence level. It adds a lot. I think there's been. Enough time for us to get to know one another and like I said, we've been a group coaching staff and players included for a long time now, and so we're very familiar with one another and in the coaching staff does a really good job of like you said, putting guys in in a position to make plays in preparing us. So that when we do go out there that that we have the tools in order to to make plays in you know you've probably seen that as a as a result of all those turnovers and. We're just going to what? What? What spags as has been preaching to us is improvement and we're going to do that weekend week out. Thanks Dan appreciate your. Time.

From the Podium - Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes wrap up the 2020-21 season

"Hello and welcome to the podcast. We call from the podium. Where you get to hear directly from your kansas city chiefs editor and chief of arrowhead pride dot com pete sweeney. The kansas city chiefs dropped super bowl. Fifty five tampa bay buccaneers on sunday and on monday chiefs head coach. Andy reid and quarterback patrick mahomes joined the media via zoom conference. Call true reflect on the super bowl with the off season now ahead. This marks the final press conference. We will hear from the kansas city chiefs for quite a while until we get into. What will be draft season. That also marks temporary end from the podium. So i do want to take this opportunity before. We get into the andy reid santa. Thank you for listening to this. Podcast route the year. I hope it wasn't effective way for you to stay in touch with your kansas city chiefs. Let's get to this final episode now and here is chiefs head coach. Andy reid so obviously the outcome of the game wasn't What we anticipate going in nor wanted i will just reflect just a little bit on and thanked the fans for a great day. Works out the season during this crazy time. All of the department heads here With the cheese and the effort that they put forward whether recber polder given up his summer to do this With the protocol. Mitch reynolds kerstin crew rocco all all the people that just You know really dedicate a ton of time to it and then mark donovan obviously overlook that so like all teams Where we'll get busy here going down the road. We'll take a little time off and then in ourselves back and and refreshed and back and ready to attack this next this next season so You know the they'll be things that we can improve on We'll we'll still have a good core of players coming back with some new additions. Oh team stays the same obviously. Today's nfl so Well we'll do that part for the game Not much different than what i mentioned last night. i'm not going to go back and hit all the things that we did. I talked about last night. But i think the obvious was it. Oh we can't have as many penalties we had just hasn't been us can't be as inefficient on on the offensive side is what we were in particular red zone thoughts big red zone thoughts Likewise on the defensive side red zone was an issue so Third downs or shirley close which is a critical situation. Not there was good enough nightmare. Good enough both teams are pretty close on that The one that really jumps out is a hundred plus yards eleven eleven penalty so that's too much Hard to overcome those types of things when you're when you're going in the wrong direction so anyways with that time jewish dot. I hurry tailpiece but herbie echoes. Good morning you mentioned the entering the business side of football here shortly probably in the next month to got through agency. But you also have a coach. Who's a free agent. Who who's scheduled to be eric enemy a two part question here. How close are you to new deal with the enemy. And what would it mean to the organization to have him back again for another shot at the championship. Yeah so ab. And i've talked about about that. Now keep that between us and then we'll get everything worked out as we go here. Which coming off on this. We haven't had a whole lot of sleep. Obviously getting back here when we did so We'll get all that settle this next week. And we'll see see where everything goes. San miguel and How much would when you do get together with brandon. His staff and you guys discuss what you wanna do this off season. How much will you way how it ended versus navy. The first eighteen weeks in our the things rides over the course of the season so that that's what's important here about stepping back for an inching. He can kind of reflect and think and scheming valid. Do those things and we'll do. We'll get right on our personality. Vows here With the coaches this week and make sure we knock that out and then put that give that to brett important that when we do that as coach is give our reports two breath that we we do. Just what you're saying. Sam that we look at the whole picture and and not necessarily making off off one game just curious. What's your advice is to pat now as you guys had into. This extended break here. So i'll talk to him. I haven't had a chance to meet with him on that yet. so i'll leave it at that but you know he. He'll continue to grow your. He's really you know. Were talking about four years and going into your fifth. So three years is a starter. And he's been very productive and hard out last night But like all of us you know. Obviously it wasn't good enough. I mean none of us Starting to make and sit here and say that we really had our best game so but issur has a great foundation and great drive to be to be best. And so you know we'll regroup and we'll give them a few things that he can he can work on and i'm sure he's got his mind to dr sweeney coach heading into the offseason. Now that mahomes is is with the organization for it's expected to be the next decade. How much is that change. Considering he is a little bit older you know each other well where maybe he can potentially get more involved in in the plan the personnel plans with you and brad and some of those talks in in the offseason here or is it just not at all. He's just going to focus on play. Yeah so i mean that's kind of where he's ad he likes. He likes doing that In the guy he's kept it that way so but again we talk and bread. Breath got a great relationship with them and and if necessary to talk i mean. We don't put a wallet there by any means so I think i think most of all that pedestal trust that i do and and brett and how he goes about doing so now go to. Nick jacobs go nick. Indium curious for you. What lessons do you hope the players learn from last night in the season overall. So i'll start to get here. I'm proud of the guys. I mean i mentioned that last night. The it's not an easy road getting back. That's why most teams don't get back and if you do most stadiums don't now is not is not always a guaranteed when they were better than we were yesterday. We've made to me too many mistakes whether it was me calling the plays Put guys in the right position or right down the line as you go so You make that many mistakes against a good football team and they weren't making as many mistakes and you're not gonna win this level so You gotta you gotta come to these games. You gotta be sharp handy. Excuse me a bit. This is a little bit related to same dow's question earlier about sort of you know dividing what just happened last night versus the you know the first eighteen games but the the offensive line. You know. I'm not going to harp on last night but like going forward. How many of the solutions are in house. You guys had a ton of injuries. How much of that was was strategy. How much of that is you know personnel upgrades it that you'll look into this offseason abso. Listen i'm not obviously point my finger at the at the offense line Guys are moved around a little bit. And they take great pride in their work and busted their tail so With the guys that are injured that are potentially coming back or opted out or potentially coming back Whoa kind of get all that covered here in the next couple of days I don't think the outlook is bleak by any means We should be. We should be good. they're just And then brett will obviously keep an eye on. That isn't he. Does everything and see how that how that works. But i'm optimistic going forward and i'm probably the guys the effort that they gave last night petro. Excuse me coach a questions. If i could i. I'm not gonna ask you to go back on on the officials and say this is a good car back. I'm just curious if you do like in a moment like this wanna to say. Hey let's take a look at this What is the process for. You know like sending things to the league just so fans with no hey. Here's the step-by-step. i know it's not going to the outcome of the game. But just the course of a business how that works and then you go ahead. I'll give you that polyps. Listen yeah we have. We have the opportunity to voice. Our gripes To the to the league and they do a good job on responded to it You know so. Really for whatever i think or what. They think the calls were made. And it's obviously. It's a shame that way had that many in that big game and possibly were that close of a judgment call and then kind of we're sam. Both the sam's We're we're talking about moving forward. How does it get more difficult. When you're this close to make the decision. I remember covering the chiefs in an organization when you were with philadelphia. Used to point to the eagles and say hey the we gotta get to where the eagles are always a step ahead. They always get off the train before it goes downhill with their personnel right. And that was that was you and and your operation there in philadelphia. Does it get when you're here this close to say to make those difficult decisions and say. Hey maybe this guy's we've gone too far. There's too many injuries too. Old does it. Does that cloud your judgment when you've been in the super bowl the last two years. Yeah i i don't think it does. I think he'd come in. And you evaluate step back. First serandon Pump the brakes for about a minute and then and then you go ahead and And you make those kinds of judgments. Those are tough calls. You know that's a tough thing to do But it's also part of the business and coaches know it and players know it and It's all part and so so we'll do that. We're not going to change that part of it And we'll be with our evaluations as we as we do that. And as real as we can be. Taylor coordinate and you thanks for taking the time I know you didn't mention Brit specifically last night. But i was just interested into knowing if you had been able to talk to him since the incident on thursday night and and how he's doing After what appears to be sustained some injuries in the accident. I better chance to talk now. I have Yeah my heart. Goes out to young lady. I'm also a dad. So i i get. That have concerns. Obvious on both sides and Bread did have surgeries. He's doing doing better now. That little girl my heart goes out to you. We appreciate your time. Thanks joining us. Thank you thank. You just heard from chiefs head coach. Andy reid and we continue on with quarterback patrick mahomes. We'll start first with aaron land. Appreciate the time here. Tyreek talking with this yesterday said todd bowles and the game plan that he had was kind of the. Mvp of the game. Could you kind of describe us what was different from his game plan. And how was it so effective. Yeah it was a good game plan. they did a good job of kind of take away our easy stuff with a cornerstone. Press down to the outsides. And then they made sure to keep people over. The top of our speed especially tyreek in linebackers did a good job. Assigning kills over the middle of field. I'm and they just rallying to the ball and then tackled And then on third down they they. They kinda played to manage type. Tai-bo look but they they really pay attention to the travis and to tie read so i mean it was. It was a good game plan. I mean we we have some plays here and there but overall they did a good job of finding ways to kinda stoller drives out especially as we got closer to the fifty yard line. Next out of teisser go down ca. Can you just give us a sense of what your next say couple months will be like before you guys maybe get back together again and battle have one quick fall as well. Yeah i mean the. I mean today today. I'm gonna do whatever. I can to kind of look at the look at the film and try to find ways to to get better. I mean obviously with our offense and the success that we've had When team see that different plan that he had and how well it worked there obviously going to try to do the same thing. And so Tra find ways to combat that and kind of I've aleutian of our offense or we're gonna have to do better things and be more efficient And that that really goes with me and not always looking for the big play but just finding ways move the ball down. The field imminent. Just get back after manam. You've got to prepare yourself Found ways to better yourself physically mentally be gotta be become a dad. So i gotta i gotta work on becoming a better data even though i haven't even became one yet in and also kind of along those lines. There's specific things you going to be working on this offseason as opposed to just generic improvement of their parts of your game. Whatever those might be the trigger be working on sale before the started camp. Yeah i mean. I thought they did a good job. Towards the end of the season of being more efficient obviously didn't do that in the super bowl. But i'm gonna try to find ways to better myself that way may just being more efficient taking what's Especially with these to these teams playing such deep coverages against us. Moving the ball down the field. And that's it's kind of battle with such an aggressive nature. One add the big play but as a washed a film and really studying myself out the to get better at that and so that i can kinda become a better better quarterback At the end of the day connects to gop. Herbie it. patrick andy. Reid was telling us destroy Hopefully within the next week he hopes to have something done with eric. The enemy would mean to you to have him back as your offense coordinator is as you look forward and trying to get back to another championship. Game yeah i mean to have him back in the leader that he is In our locker room It just kind of sets the tone it sets the culture and obviously i mean he's gonna continue to. He'll continue to improve our offense. I think that's what's made our offense. Oh good the last few years if you look at the things that we ran two years ago the offense now i mean it's it's it's it's gotten better and better and it's it's changed so much and so um we can't just rely on the same things the same place the keep keep getting better. We keep getting new plays keep Just keep progressing as a unit and i think. I haven't him back along with the along with coach reid Coach cast all these guys. we'll keep making us a hard offense to stop in today Orient goodbye patrick guy. On this day a year ago you were going to disneyland. And you're getting ready to have the parade and all that yet for all that stuff. You obviously had a great drive. This season great incentive grade attempt to repeat i. I wonder if you have a different sense. Already of how this will motivate you now the feeling of losing the super bowl stead of winning it. Yeah we'll definitely motivate you if your competitor and you get so close to your ultimate goal in the fall short on it's up that will motivate you for the rest of your career. I mean it was a it was a bad feeling in that locker of the game. you don't want to have that feeling again and so Luckily enough level of love the same guys back And we'll obviously new guys and and we'll we'll set set the tone from the beginning of the year beginning of the season that we have to be better. We'd be better than we were this last year in order to to go out there and win. The super bowl connects to san miguel. Good sam at patrick. Connor related to that. But i'm wondering if you could give us a a sense of the mood. Just in the locker room and Was the conversation more about what had gone. Wrong was already looking ahead to next year. And how long do you anticipate that this will sit with this group. Yeah even like the first five minutes. It was quiet. I mean Guys were gaza taking everything in In short and then it just turned into. We're gonna we're gonna get back. I mean we're gonna we're gonna be back in that game and it's not there's not the in. It's not the end of something. It's going to be another another chapter another chapter where we're going to continue to drive to make ourselves better so that we're back tonight game. Petro goodson patrick. Coutry talked a little bit about the personnel side of things. You just mentioned it. There'll be some new guys. He was asked about your interest in being involved in that. You have to play a role right to where you wanna go with the ball and that kind of thing. So how much do you want to dive into the personnel and have input and talk about those things to me to me. I mean i. Just i just go out there and play i mean i obviously i will you look around you want. You wouldn't have guys here and you wanna have guys on especially gazi built relationships with today. We have a great Staff of guys that really scout and really look at players starting with breadth each. But i mean going all the way down. And i i have a total belief in them That they're going to have good players on this team every single year. And that's that's the reason. I signed the contract that i did is. I knew that We're gonna have a great roster every single year of here. next of lurker. Glen haege patrick. I just wanted to get you to recall which remember about the the incompletion their williams late in the game when you were a parallel to the ground is at a. Is that a pass that you might not have attempted unless it was worth Worth nine or whatever it was but just your recollection of that play. Yeah definitely pass the only attempt on fourth down But i remember. I was scrambling and i was trying to get out to the past last guy on that edge there. 'cause i knew if i got passed by enough time to hopefully somebody could get open. And obviously he kinda clipped me And cutting my feet. And i wasn't going to go down without giving giving somebody a chance and i saw i saw red jersey. I didn't know it was daryl. I saw red jersey. And i knew how to find a way to throw it and give them a chance to catch the ball and so i just put it up there Mana obviously came up short. But i mean he battled for the ball and we were trying to just like the whole game We we we didn't make the place but guys battled until the varian got three more. We'll start with tarez trees. It patrick thanks for for doing this. Quick question It's been a lot of talk just about the team's reliance on five-man protections gets a great front last night. And i understand that football game at shift so that doesn't mean that couldn't work right but From fairly truly football standpoint maybe share some light on on what needed to happen for the reliance on five protection work. yeah. I think it's a combination of a lot of things Obviously i also wanna we wanna be ourselves. We we really hadn't been really stopped with what we've been doing all year long And so we wanted. I mean obviously. We gave chips and we gave little extra protection. Hits and stuff like that But in the day we want to use our speed and use a what we what we've been doing In i thought the guy is a good job. I mean we just we just next to a high of nine enough level. I wouldn't on the same page with the receivers on someplace someplace. I got the line going in the wrong direction And then and then at the end of the day we didn't we didn't execute and i think that's the biggest thing in a lot of times it gets it gets it gets put on that line because i'm scrambling around but if we're not executing as far as me making the right reason getting the ball out of my hand to the receivers on time Then the nothing's gonna work So They they get that blame Sometimes but it's not deserved. 'cause it's i mean of it's on me people. Just don't see it that way last two hilton and todd. Good here Two quick questions. Why would you hurt to. He said last night's lots that the wildwood return to after loss. Like that. and it also who you turn to for a fatherly advice As far as who turned to. I mean i just talked. Just kinda keep it within the locker room. I mean we have a lot of great leaders on this team and being a competitor. You're gonna lose games but yet it's about how you respond and I feel like we have a lot of good guys in this locker. That understand that and they're already ready to get back after it And then As far as of the fathering part i got. I got a lot of role models in my life. I mean of of people That that that has been role models to me that. I'll continue to ask questions to Gunfire literally all the coaches. That i've been. I've grown up with And there's a lotta great role models that we have I have around me. And i just gotta talk to them and learn learn a lot and including players on the team that have are dad's on the team Luckily enough being in the locker room like this a lot of people that go to the same things as you do. Um yeah you're able to ask them Many questions we'll ask cuddly boca patrick. I don't even know if you can answer this year. What can you do now. The season's over you made all the protocols. Can you go back in the facility and work on film stuff at this point and just what are your thoughts about possibly what this off season is gonna look like virtual as maybe again things like that. What would your what would your choice. Be there as far as going back to the city. I believe he's still if you're going to be in the facility used to other tests I think i think that's what the protocols are. I'm sure they'll give us a full detail thing today in our our meetings but Yeah i'm gonna try to be here much possible as far as that goes And in this ars virtual or non virtual. Ot as just kinda you just going with open mind either way. I mean there's no like the other. i'll be ready for either one To better myself either way Nothing that's a we had to do. And we've kind of learned in this covert world is you gotta have to have the the the mindset of whatever kind of challenges or thrown your way you have to be able to accept that and that that goes for everything not just not just meetings so all have the same mindset of accept the challenge. Whichever way it is we appreciate your time. Thanks for joining us.

We got to hear from chiefs owner clark head coach. Andy reid safety. Tyronn matthew an offensive lineman joe -tuni- so we'll listen to clark to end andy reid. We'll take a quick break. Then you'll get to hear from the players. I up here is the owner of against the chiefs. Clark let me just say that. It's great to be back here in saint joe missouri western Talking to both players and coaches on the field One after another commented how this really feels like training camp and this is where we need to be to get the twenty twenty. One season kicked off obviously accomplish things last year. But we came up Over the short at the end That's all in the past now and we're we're looking forward to twenty twenty one. We've got a great group of both veteran and rookie players Who are excited to take on the challenge trying to get back to the super bowl with adults from robe. You good thanks to this disappointed his appropriate or at least any see you ever. Yeah knowing pat. I do i. I think he's gonna take the disappointment of super bowl and races game to another level. He obviously had the rehab that he was working through in the off season But he was there for every o- ta really one hundred percent available during though. Ta's and i know he was year to get here and get camp going because he's looking forward to getting back on the field. Just that type of mentality the type of competitor he is. I think you'll use experience and be better for murray. I'm great you're per any repercussions tyrant. Matthew i wanna play football for you as an owner. Would that be voted. The contract is well tyrants ultimate professional and really has been his entire career in the league in indefinitely during his couple years with us I know he's going to be at. Its very best this year. I've heard tire and say that he would like to extend his career in kansas city. And we feel the same way about that. Hopefully that will work out. The timings obviously uncertain processes ongoing. Probably say but when it comes to ira coaches our overview around the scouts. Thanks how do you have. Amy specifically individuals my background. Yeah well philosophically. I let the leaders within our organization hire their staffs whether that's mark donovan on the business side Bread with the scouting saffir. Andy with his coaching staff That's something that's really up to them. I'm obviously aware of who they're hiring. But i let them make the decisions in your phone away. His tiny power with a situation. Yeah i. I've not had a chance to speak to frank about it There's obviously a legal process there. At some point. The nfl may may get involved as well. We'll cooperate with the league on whatever they need to spend. Obviously you guys do on. Trial made sure that has zero. Yeah that's been a real focus of the league over the last five to ten years And in fact it led to a requirement that teams have the appropriate resources. Both internally externally Her coach read mention doctor Who we brought on a couple of years ago. He's a great internal resource for our players. And it is something. I think we have to be more cognizant of as an organization that maybe ten or twenty years ago. You got your back and say joe this year obviously ever not having. What do you think. The team gained energy wise. You from getting away from kansas city being here the guys you know. Talk about What they believe that game by being here is a team. And the and it's basically the bonding experience that you you have a training camp You can obviously get the work in just as easily in kansas. Says you can't hear but you can't replace spending three weeks dormitory eating all your meals together. I think that's really valuable for bringing team together. And we have a number of new players this year Particularly on the offense line. So i think the chance to be here at camp is really going to benefit that unity and the entire team. Look in your crystal ball. Can you predict going to be like. Are we going to be able to pack the stadium in kansas city own different areas. Yeah well some that. I've learned over the last eighteen months is it's very dangerous to try to look into the crystal ball because things change very fast route. We're seeing that right now. We're definitely planning on having a one hundred percent. Pass david at G. h. field this fall But you know. It is a dynamic process and we'll work with the health director in kansas city. Like we did last year sort of Disappointment and the number of vaccinated players he had guys mars threshold over on that process. Just said when asked the question about letting your leaders that role. You're there try. What was your message to. Andy and bret hart how you wanted to approach machinations on his. Yeah well I wanted to say at the end of the day. It's an individual decision as to whether they want to be vaccinated obviously the nfl working in conjunction with the players association has come up with protocols and they're different for vaccinated and unvaccinated players. And there's no doubt that it will help the teams that have higher vaccination rates. I think your your chances of maybe losing key players or losing physician groups throughout the season will be diminished. I at the end of the day. It was really a function of our team leaders Not so much. The coaching staff or red feet but You know patrick mahomes and other leaders on the team encouraging their teammates to get back. I think that's why we have such a high vaccination rate off woman the backup of your saint joe and fans. Fear is not necessarily the same as also new over there with a better vantage point house. Johnny cash back provided more. Yeah well first. Of all i would say. We really appreciate the enhancements. That missouri western has made over the last couple of years in anticipation of us. Coming coming back for training. Camp in this berm is one of those and I know the the players and coaches appreciate the work that was done in in the dorm dormitories as well. And it's so great to be able to have our fans back at training camp I can think back to my experience as a kid coming from camp with with my dad. Just how special that is and so it was great to see somewhere between three and four thousand of our season ticket holders here day enjoying train training camp and as i said earlier about The games as fall. Hopefully we're gonna be able to be at a hundred percent When we get back to g h field. Welcome back as far as injuries go We've got a couple of coverage here so darwin thompson and winchester. They're both in the covert protocol. We'll just see how they finish up here. Leak herring as Acl nikai back spasms along the tibia making good progress and that's it Tweaked his hamstring. Just a little bit today. Go to get the guys back. Then they great energy and We look forward to working with all the new guys up here. No more condensed work and And media scheduled for that time jerusalem law here so yeah you're probably get back at some point we'll just see how he does here Very similar to what Sorenson had a couple of years. Go into camp the heat i also make sure guys hydrated and test them prior to and after the and then we continue to give them water breaks during practice And even if it's in between even join a series you know we get number applies guys. They'll run in and give them a little water off. Nevo consistency done a nice job. I mean not that. It's our percent perfect young guy but Showed enough to legitimately be in that position for right now and then he's got to compete so we'll see how that goes but we get them kisser. Your got lady like birds out to the pressure got. You're ready guys such expectation that actually the old straight championships. You noticed that. Is that something you have to focus on their relieving pressure. Got all your past. Yeah so i listened to the league does a great job at talking about that with us. they've got films that we went through yesterday with it actually And then we keep a close eye. Doctor t. here who's fulltime staff and he meets with every player throughout the year. So and his door is always open. So we we keep that Nobody's too big Not to step up and say listen. I got problem. We've all got him. My hat goes off to the young lady man. She's a she's a beast stud absolutely. So and she'll she'll be better for when it's all said and done and that's the most important thing quick questions here about one of your former players. Sixty eugene show. What is your reaction to question your reaction to all the news about being electorally. Told he's not the right to work. Yeah so listen. I'm a big eugene chunk fan. So i think he's brilliant and he's a good football coach she didn't i a helping doug get roll trophy And so And he's real. I mean he's going to say what he says. And or is that you know we're in this right now and we've gotta get we gotta get through it and everybody's got to pick it up together so there's been a lot on On the topic of racism. And and i always feel blessed to be in the national football league. Where it doesn't matter you come together and you play and Probably the next thing Like that war. I mean you really don't care who's the foxhole. He's gonna make sure that you guys are all working together For a cost. And that's what we need to get As a country. And i think that's probably what eugene was saying. Let's just bring it together. It doesn't matter what color you are. let's bring you together. We all have our issues. But let's let's work through it quite rhythmic clock on monday and he said i'm sorry your feet of her from the head coach is leading specifically mentioned you. You offered him support for you to this. Oh you guys. And i've talked i've eugene played for me and and coach for me and And so we talk all the time and it's not always about that. I mean that's one of the things we talk about. But listen he was put on the spot a bit out there and he. He said what he said and he was real with it. And so You know people take different sides and how they approach it. But i think he's bringing light to it and and that can be positive long-haul days ago said the aussies. He's watching film of guys like ben laboratory. Thomas john ryan guys who wasn't a year that well he loves the game and so he goes back and he studied as a positive to do that. But it gives them an idea of how we how we roll here and He's blessed have a great coach. And andy heck who played fourteen years in the national football league. So he's got that first hand experience at his position so he he's in. He's in a good spot right now. He knows that and he's willing to work. That's what it tells me. He's willing to cover cover all the bases as he goes. Do just wanna see these first few days before you know what defense as a team. We gotta come together right. That's that's why up here and we've got new faces. That's what's so unique about the national football ever years different. And so you you build this saying. This is the foundation of it and you kind of work from here. So i expect to see that from the defensive side just just like the office of side. Let's Get to know each other. No the man next year no his job and responsibility to everybody else's job responsible and most of all your job responsibility. Let's go play games per day. Just guys yeah. So yeah really. It's just what you said. He's more comfortable in the defense. The scheme he's worked very hard at that so we look forget. Thanks from willie. Off for every category ripping and recognize related. What the vendor. Both as we can get better at I mean those are a couple spots that we can work on which we have and they all season. We'll continue to do that here so They work in well-balanced you know being able to do when you want to do them against Whatever mismatch you can create is the important one year. You said different every year. We come out day one this year. What were you looking for what you want to see from this team wants to see you wanna see execution especially when you before you get pads on one install is in. Let's see let's the execution whether it's chefs emotions. The snap count. let's see that. Let's make sure we're not going backwards. We're going forward a stay outside on the defensive side when the staff counts a little bit longer than the first sound so and then assignment football on the back end along those lines of cancer looking forward to this year. Maybe it's really tradition. You're getting back to this year. The weren't able to do last year. I always get fired up with the seven-man sled breaking it out. I pads school football. And and then we go from there. Were from call on league. He's ready for bigger workload. That's what you guys out. Yeah i like mccalls work that he put in this off season way handled himself. I like the way came out today. And what he did here. I i look for good. Thanks so up. Sure you've been judge base monday. That the tally as long as sincere early groups on it might want this. I mean that's if you're taking steps back that's problem so you shoot yourself in the foot. It's a that becomes a problem similar mentality to the game of the camp. Yeah the yes i do. I mean there's a there's a certain foundation that's been built over time here and you bank on that up to ask about a couple days ago talking about the giving said that he didn't get a chance to sing with patrick. Mahomes vance how. How important is it or or maters overrated the idea. Those guys get most russell awesome. Yeah no i mean. I think that's important. He'll keep getting better as he goes here. This will be a big camp for so deal happening right now about this season off. He knows he. He said it when he came here. I just wanna play. That's where he's at. He loves it here.

You just heard from clark. And andy reid and now we continue on with chief safety. Charon matthew followed by offensive. Lineman joe tuning. Here's tyrant your contract situation. Now it's going to be a big question here but he wasn't done before the start camp disappointed at all I think most people know me. They know i love the play football So i have another chance to do that. So it's all about my teammates So what about the guys around me. just me continue trying to beat the person i have so and not letting anything outside of that kind of influence you know operate day-to-day today heading the whole team back together. Like you do a whole lot more than than a great day. The first day So you got to work through some things. But i mean it's a blessing you know to to be out here. You know especially canal fans You know to to be able to interact with each other simply each other. You know a team I thank camp is extremely important so I think to a good start. I just be called now. Trains can't things listed. Like i don't know i don't think we'll probably have to Fell out the final matter filling that role for us but we missed cope with for sure. Did you set aside no not really I think most players would like to have things you know done before. They get to the season but like i said I'm all about ball. I love ball so Pork from me to stay focused on that and you know let other things. He's having themselves last tiring. Atari versus you felt like the after. I guess i mean it. Great you know obviously is great work. You know competing against our offense going up against pat Tyreek you know travis Miko we're loaded so requires all of us on the back into really strain on really put working so Like i said we're going to get one of the best office in the league and so every day we work with each other you know. Someone's going to make us better in the point but on the subject can't you set them up and go get just one civilized soon so confident it will get done and is there. Tom or comes to the season at it does get to where you don't get it out. Maybe i mean that's the most important thing is not letting anything become a distraction. Donna thing on my mind right now is getting off to a fast start making please continuing to lead my group. I think anything else takes away from you know who i am. Yes by a huge opportunity for you guys when you learn about and naval about well he's been growing consensus first-day. Ota's you kind of see him growing. You can see him understanding the scheme understanding the players that he's working with so miss a poor family continue to kind of the next couple of weeks to continue to get better within a scheme. And i think he has enough talent. You know thank god can play. You know he's a he's medical punts you know got great ball scale so i think most importantly is all about the scheme understanding. You know where he's supposed to be what he's not supposed to do and then from there is is football. You know the ball. They'll try to make a play abuse. Jerry's much rich. Paul excited her. I mean that's the most important thing you know. I think a lot of guys coming league with with great upside great potential any kind of it kind of fades away. You know I think the most important thing for young guys is to continue to take the next step. I think every year you play in his league kind of requires you to take the next step. What are your twelve year veteran. You know third year player in this league You know so I'm proud of him for the stuff she's been taking Some the practice that they continue to get some extra work so You know he's kind of understanding that he's you know one of our better corners. Then you know he's going to have to kind of lead that group for sure time this talking about mel in light of what's no miles going through that. Pay attention to any of those. Could you speak to this important mental health. Maybe extremely important I think we all have different influences. you know some of us some influence you know spreads far beyond you know the country we live in so and i think most people don't necessarily understand the pressure So you really mostly you pray for those people you pray for the people around them hoping that they can continue to you know. Get the support that they can get but You know i'm proud of her. You know. I'm proud of naomi front all these women who have kind of stepping up Taking that initiative to kind of put you know meant to help i. I think that that is the most important thing for natalie allen. That's what you guys for two years into do this on you. That allows guys to get off those. He's really coach. Our leadership that that that we have From all our coaches you know our coordinators and position coaches Thank all of them. Kind of really strain as they. They stretch us They require us to put in a lot of work. You know before we actually get to that first game and so i think all those things pay off you know the meetings coaches being hand on detail I think all those things work well for us and you know. I think that really helps us. We're one of the best condition teams in the league too. So we run around a lot and i think all of those things help get off to a quick start four that you know everybody on the team position. Talk all on. I mean we for the most part you know every day and probably say you know we talked mostly about where he's gonna stay at when he when he brought a house out here so i kinda suggested to A couple of areas women move into. But i can't stand next to him for too long he he's way bigger than me. So of good to have them around the nate. Close it out your shirt my job. That's fact is yes. But i think it's important for you to of take your job. I didn't understand you playing with ten other people so we all kind of have to work off each other. Help each other Some of us have to do the dirty work guys make plays an and vice versa. So i is not just about your job but it's also about kind of helping teammates too. So that's what my job plus comes up a point to let it right now. The top twenty nine hold. We'd all agree with that here. What is the prime you think for accident lakes. And where do you physically athletically at twenty nine others. I think most of the guys. I've looked up to that. They played in his league time. Rondi bob dion sanders. Charles woodson So you know champ bailey. jonathan's also when i was in houston. He played fourteen years outside. Cornerback that's pretty tough to do so I think for the most part you take care of your body. The plan is leave fix leader for the guy but so what do you want to get out of this. You tell your we'll see how the guys come along with me. I don't think it's all about me. Making all pro look valued a couple of other guys in my room to to kind of be all pro via pro bowl or even be a household name. Guys want to see them play every sunday. I think that's the ultimate goal for me That's patrick peterson. Provided for me Just that vision to to to to be special to be great no matter what people think You know so. I see that for those guys that we had a couple of guys in our room that that can really be all frozen solid. But he's up to those guys to believe in that putting tyrod. Hello everybody about the chemistry. What lady salons greg group You know hang out off the field and locker room always talking about the joke in. So they're great group Watergate is and Yes just you being out here. There's just kind of an isolated bubble and it's great to spend time with the guys and you know. Just keep building every day. Can you hear watch. Cnn the hangover mind He's enjoying strong. He's physically smart You know he says his playbook really hard You know it's everyone's communicating up there on the line and He's doing a great job and Yeah just scraping for this group. Cd communication accurate. Now that you've been eleven on eleven passed along yeah Oj's were great to get a lot of reps and a lot of time with With offenses a whole and You know day one out of here. It was well and i think we're building and They're doing a great job. Creed also get us. Playbook a lot and You know patrick knows you know every know so much so It's it's been great talking about the chemistry coming together and getting reps. And i know that this franchise under readers success when guys go down hoover loud. What get into wetland side covered the net right but what has made what what about. How does thanks so successful when guys do go down being able to put it all together. Yeah you always want to be able to play multiple positions Senator guard tackle or You know three and You know. I think coach just do a great job. Coach heck has done a great job of getting guys you know different positions and You know because like you said you know football it's It's a physical game. You never know what's going to happen and Scott have you know the next guy ready to go. And i think everyone room just wants to work together. Work hard and You know just just do the best. They can follow our physical aspect of change in the positions in the different type or the mental side of digesting knowing nice combination. Both i guess I guess it depends on the guy but like for the communication mental. Everyone's talking the whole time. Everyone's trying to communicate. It'll be on the same page and Physically you know there's a little different from each position on the guy s heat. I mean training kids supposed to be you know. We have wonderful hundred sixty degrees today. Feel it offense dripping but you know it's great You know. I know didn't realize this hot. But it's it's It's been great and everyone's just grinding out there and The train staff and always near kiemes well hydrated. And i'm doing a great job and See aspen great though. Aren't doing to source the costs. Yeah you know like. I said earlier being in this kind of being you know here on campus and we spent so much time to get it always talking always palestinian which other explaining. What do you mean by this what you know so just just talking to each other and You know using our collective we own brains to try and you know totally be on the same page and So it's been going well tremendous resonated that you still says as a new hire team you have to prove yourself a little bit. Yeah always you know. I mean you know can't see chiefs were tremendous organization where great guys especially You know recently the success that we've had in her you know yeah super bowl multiple times and I just want to in here and do my role it'd be best. I can be to contribute. Most i can to to this group and You know just excited to be here. And it's been great so far and you know couldn't be happier joining an offense that gender probably four to key to run the football and I think everyone's going to be on the same page in regards to the defense and the blocking scheme and You know i think just comes down to execution and trying to play hard for the whistle and there's You know it's only j. one attorney camp you know. I think we're all trying to get better each day and keep trying to progress. And i'm you know it's a process and yeah mitchell hanging out with typesetting with relief guys opposition.

From the Podium - Andy Reid, Eric Fisher, president Mark Donovan

"Hello, and welcome to the Arrowhead Pride podcast. We call from the podium where you get to hear directly from your Kansas City chiefs. I'm the editor IN CHIEF OF ARROWHEAD PRIDE DOT COM Pete Sweeney it was another training camp practice on Wednesday and after it was over chiefs head coach Andy Reid left Tackle Eric Fisher and team President Mark. Donovan. Spoke to the media via zoom conference call. So we'll hear from reading Fisher on this side take a quick break, and then we'll hear from Donovan Right. Now here's the chiefs head coach Andy Reid listen as far as the injuries go. Kind of the same guys I mentioned the other day tyreek digging some work today. So that's he's headed in the right direction as he did the other day other than that. It's the same guys everybody's making progress and. was good to have the guys out there that were out there working. Listen I'm. Just put. Put My ten cents. Jacob situation. Listen I'm I. I think you guys know I'm GonNA team I'm into. A piece and and people getting along and so right or wrong. We all need. We all need to join has man here and and. Make this world a place where we can go on each other's neighborhoods and be comfortable and that we appreciate life and how important it is hard. It is create life something that. Really, none of us are capable of doing in a test tube. So it's a it's a precious thing man it's complicated. It is precious and we need to. At this time, we everybody needs to come together and Join hands like I said and And love each other for for what we are and the privilege that we have on the short period of time that we're on earth as opposed to walk into fear to walk with strength and pride and make this country the greatest place ever along with the world we do. That will be a great example to the world. So but my my heart goes out to. Jacob and his family, and that situation I don't know the whole story but I just I hate seeing the way things were things are going right now and We're better than that absolutely better than that and we can like I said, we respect each other and we're going to be a great great place. anyways with. That time. Jurors. anti-seizure. Anyhow. Hand. It certainly looks like that. You all despite the unusual circumstances or getting. A lot of good work in practice just wanted to know if you feel that way whether u how you feel about what you've been able to accomplish to this point camp. Yeah, no I I listen. I'm proud of the guys in the way they're pushing through. They're doing with a great attitude. And and so we're getting better and We gotTA keep. We gotta keep going with this and finish up. The camp strong because we have a great a great challenger, our first game and With, with taxes. So we understand that and You know we know how tough they are so were were preparing. For the season still we're. Not. Returning necessarily for t right this minute as far as plays go were. However still doing our training camp plays and and work through those. Herbie Herbie. Coach in light of what you just mentioned about the Jake for blades situation, the Lions yesterday canceled practice and the whole team meetings about it all I'm curious how much thought went into doing data on your end and then did you have a team meeting with the players to discuss their feelings on that situation? So, hurry whether great advantages I've got here is I have a great locker room the communicates in. So maybe it'll talk guys and get a feel with the guys There's obviously concern and. not to where. We felt like we needed to do that. We were able to go forward but on this, but we also understand where things need to go and and where we all need to work real need work forward on this and. again I think. That, we're all we're we're we've got great people in this country and and. We need to bring that part out in us as opposed to the negative and get ourselves right. Me Taylor. And Heath. Thanks for doing this. Follow on purpose question with the guys coming to you about a certain situation that has occurred this summer whether it's with Jacob or previously just how does dolts conversations go with those players? Just how valuable is it from your perspective to hear what players say they feel when a certain incident occurs in our country? I mean that's what I do I tried to do to save my kids and people that come in contact with I mean it's no different I. I can learn from everybody and and so and then there's concerns right now and so They're being addressed and things the changes always a little uncomfortable for people and our business where we have a lot of change, it's constantly happening and and so but you gotta you gotta listen you gotTa sit and make sure that You know you keep open communication with it so That's I'm lucky like I said I'm lucky to have a lock around the desert and and players at talk about it and guys that listen to each other and so and if we can just put color aside and enjoy each other's culture man, we all come from different places. We're all wired a little different and we can just bring it together and enjoy each other's what we're all about as opposed to taking the negative and throw that out the window and. Get the sing right. Same Knowing Good Sam Andy that's all really well said I've got I guess kind of an off the wall football question for you though you've talked a lot we've asked you a lot about you know sort of Patrick's experimentation on the field. You not see what he can get away with what he can't. I don't know that I've ever heard. You talk about the genesis of that. I don't remember you saying that with Alex for instance I'm just wondering if that part of. How you direct Patrika practices toward a let it fly. Let's see. What you can do is different than than quarterback patent past. Now, let's say anything with Alex I. Tried it now I mean, we're we're GONNA ask a few different things of you. There are some things that even analysis long career that he had before he got here are there might be some things that you haven't you haven't tried before, and so let's see what you can get away with and Alex was great with it. I mentioned I believe during training camp. So you know Saint Joe that. When I first got here I was asked about interceptions and I. Mean that's they're they're ones where guys are working on. Then there's ones were guys scramble around they just they throw it up the sloppy interception. So the other ones you can judge and see that they're trying to. Work see what they can get away with what the play I think. So Important I. and Mike Holmgren. If I got from somebody, that's how I got it from so We've got three more hands up. Let's go right down the line. We'll go Darren I. Good they're. Very much coach. My question because I don't know if you specifically asked her it but. What the Detroit Lions canceling their practice what was if there were any conversations with you ask the defending super bowl champion can't selene in regards to protesting because that cares a lot more weight than Detroit is doing it, and then secondly, we'll what took place where brilliant neo season the police as we continue to see shooting unarmed black men that are being shot by them what have you and your coaches either set a time side or set a time conversation to have with your players both black and white in regards to interactions with the police. So Derek Way, we actually I mean has a at a time when we we've been having meetings throughout training camp on it and the League and the and the Union of done a nice job collectively Brian this issue and issues together I think they've done a great job of of of teaching and and so that's where that's where we're at right now it's a matter of doing and and getting getting this done and. Where people really respect each other and i. see it every day. I wish everybody could see this I. See it every day of guys coming in and they respect each other respect each other's background they're willing to listen when we've had these joint meetings about this about situations on racism everybody contributes whether they're black or white, it doesn't matter You know there there's nothing holding back the communication and I think as long as we do that I think the. or No better has what we are the young people in America right now because and understand chain they're going to demand it and and so listen you. We keep working at it or we're going to get this right. And you know that's that's that's where we're at. Our file to in and then Herbie to finish it. Good. Coach. Mike Panel. It's announced it suspended for the two gains First of all, can you? Tell us how that process works for you. When do you become aware of that and start your planning like I assume you knew? Far before we did right and so how long you have to be working that in your mind and then it's going to be two games. The first two games without to pretty important pieces to that defense I came to get in the second half. How much does this set you guys back then without bree Linda amp and Elena's first two games. So listen, they're good football players so but you know how we how we operate. So everybody has a chance to get into compete. We expect backups UH. Not to to be able to step in and play and and one thing breast and he's he's brought competition here to for that reason not. Of So something goes wrong then you can fill it in and with a good football player. So that's where we're at. And we'll keep working on as far as the suspension go when they let us know. I listen and I it's it's not as a process they. They might let you know that something is going to potentially happen. Then they let us know what it does happen so. Hurry. And controlling experience. From coaching mega superstar over your career from Brett Farve Te'o Brian. Dawkins what is it about cats mahomes his demeanor and in this character that hasn't been quipped to handle being the face of the franchise and even the new face of the NFL. I'll go back to Reggie White who is a phenomenal hall of Famer Right. So and really Brett Farve, these guys when I was young in the League. I just noticed that the great ones want you to give him one more thing to even be greater than they already are. And they're very humble that way and they always they always continue to learn and that's That's the process in which Pacos and he wants you to coach. I guess as maybe the best thing Herbie I can say and any little thing that you can give him where his game can be better he's willing to listen. And and then on top of that like I mentioned the other day for the young guys young kids out there that are coming up as quarterbacks you look at it me always natural. We'll know he he does have some natural ability. Yes but he works at it he he's not just complacent with where he's at he's always working on his game. I. Mean The hours that he spends going over the place when he's away from the building. As I mean it's a tribute to the kid. He's completely dedicated to it and I just think for for young kids that are coming up college kids high school. the Youth Leagues. This guy goes about it the right way and it's fun to watch you know. Hey fish good to see a man. Curious I have two questions for you. I is just how did you spend your off season after getting a chance to celebrate the Super Bowl and going into the virtual program? How did you kind of stay in shape and get ready for the season? And then secondly, I know you got some time to go hunting and fishing during the offseason. How important is that to you especially time like this to be able to kind of to kind of get away and enjoy some time like that. Yeah. So When the Super Bowl and Debt and then I'm from Michigan. So I go back to Michigan do I live and it's kind of in the middle of the woods secluded and I spent my time there and then fold full gym in my garage and So in the whole Kobe thing happened you know to spend a Lotta Time Up there and working out and staying in shape and doing my best to just process everything and you know Be Responsible and you know take my part society. you know everything that was going on You know protect my family at the same time and and then yeah doing us upon ingestion on undulated bonchamps efficient and just spending time. Kind of to myself and with my family and. Join join what What's Society was presented? Good, a nate. Taylor Gordon Eight. I'm sure you wash these guys on film before but what's it like having? Mike remers with you along with collection similarly, what have you learned about those guys at how are you trying to help them get prepared for the season to play alongside you Yet school. This is the first time since I've been here that we've had like a super veteran lines have a bunch of Eight, nine, ten, ten year guys You know it's kind of awesome to just see the knowledge that they've gained from other places and you know coach is a great job of getting on same page and You know obviously beverages doing a great job bringing guys in here to get the job done and so getting to know these guys it's been a fun process obviously different different scenarios this year with everything going on just in the camp life. For for me for seven years, camp was the same exact thing and So I thought we've I. Think we've been doing a great job was the time with allotted getting the work in and getting prepared for week one. Day Go ahead make. A are just wondering how you're feeling and how the concussion happened and if you've got any concussion issues in the past. No. Over the years I mean have been playing football while now and probably had a couple in the past but you know it's not like a normal thing for me just routine rapid Sometimes, you just get hitting the right rate spot at the right time. You know what happens but I to the protocol to do what you told and You know make sure you're honest with your symptoms and you know. Did that and. was able to get back into it for a few days and backswing and now. Let's go to hurry hurry. Air Good to see you as always. You mentioned having the veterans on that breadth, each Baden, and I'm curious because you didn't have the off season to gel but. With so much with such a small window. Now before the start of the regular season having this is it to have those veterans come in and kind of like being a plug and play type option. Yeah I think. The coolest thing is like you know we got most of our guys back and I think that gives us. Step up on everybody just you know we win the Super Bowl and then we kind of. Jump back into a few spots and i. mean the majority of this team has been in this offense for quite a few years So I'm pretty excited about that. But yeah, these guys coming in their catch on veteran guys, they've been multiple systems. And like I said, go checks great job this skin them up to speed and. The guys are bringing in though that they have natural chemistry I mean it's you know you know some you there's either chemistry chemistry and that's one of the Nice things with. Mike, Qalacha like it's just like you know veteran guys who who know how to do their pros pros and Alan we're just rolling out there good stuff. I guess we got time for a couple more. We're going to go from the top. And then Pete's quite certain. Eric. You've been fortunate enough to have the continuity, the same coach, same old line coach and everything, and they always talk about like when guys go down the offensive line that hey, you know we're ready to plug anybody we talked Mitchell Schwartz. He talked about taking a couple of reps here and there being able the move up and down the line but two things one left tackle. Do you take any reps anywhere else or is that the one spot where you get to take all the reps at your spot and then if you could just kind of breakdown what the challenges are you had a couple of different left guards next year. Last year what what? What what the challenges are, when a guy does come in and it is a change maybe mid game. Yeah. I guess to your first question I haven't taken a rep adding more but left tackle for six years So you know getting that down pretty pat and and then was other questions. Yeah when you look at my situation last year, you know. Mid Week injury then in surgery I go down Great Games plug in there that's just life on the offensive lying it's it's. We don't want it to happen, but it's definitely a possibility in. I. Mean what we do in the trenches isn't easy as isn't easy on the body and sometimes stuff happens and Got To keep moving forward I mean that's just kind of the way of life. You. Can't. Dwell on things you got to. Figure out the situation make the best of the situation and keep bunk keep on moving forward. It's going to eat sweeney to close it out go pete. Eric. I understand. This is a general question but when you go into year eight, what goals can can you set for yourself to make sure you're you're continuing to challenge yourself? With all this time last season I've had a chance to reflect on you know. The girls I've had my career going from the first overall pick, and then worked my way up pro ball win in the Super Bowl. Obviously the all pro tickets out there you know. So I think. Obviously. The number one goal is get to the Super Bowl and win the super bowl of AF- residence individual if I could you know, find a way to another mother pro bowl another or to have my first all pro year You know it'd be some special something I'm working four. And then just to keep building and being consistent you know staying on top of my staff get complacent not saying, okay. Preached my potential. Just keep building on what has been building on for eight years. As. We appreciate the time today. Thank you now. Thanks Brad. Hannah. Fans Dak Prescott here one is spent Sunday afternoons with your favorite teams and players switched to direct TV and get NFL Sunday ticket included at no extra cost I'm talking every live out of market game every Sunday Sunday no matter where you live.

Month applies twenty four month agreement activation, other fees, terms, and restrictions apply you just heard from head coach Andy Reid and left Tackle Eric Fisher and now we continue on with team President Mark. Donovan Doing. I'm well. Good. Thank you. Couple of things mark What is it about Arrowhead or the chiefs or Kansas City where the chiefs felt comfortable selling tickets to the Games where? So many NFL teams in other pro sports. Teams haven't felt comfortable at least to this point and also at twenty two percent of capacity. How many tickets is that? Exactly. Let me take that backwards or forward to roughly sixteen thousand. Tickets out of seventy five or so. We typically would have. I, think what makes us comfortable is our plan and I'm late and I apologize for being late. I was on a League call and we were talking about that and I was asked to present. To the League on our plan and our success this past. Saturday and our plan for Saturday and our plan for the day for opening kickoff and you know we are very confident in our plan. We said this numerous times and we'll say it again and we will reiterate it. That are plan is only as good as compliance and the folly of directions following protocol for our staff, our players for coaches for our fans. It's it's critical that everybody's follow the protocols. But if they do, we feel pretty confident that we can do this. We're not alone. We are definitely in the minority when you look across the league I think they're. Five or six teams go with. With tickets and vans in stands for the first week, and then I know six to ten are contemplating after week two or three. AM beyond so We take their responsibility very seriously. We understand and I said this on the call that I was on earlier. We understand that you know we gotta get this right and we've got a very diligent in our processes and our protocols in order to be successful in order to have another game with fans, and we know that other teams in other leagues are GonNa be looking at us. I would also say we're not alone in sports, right? Last sporting here in Kansas City hosted fan successfully far as I've heard. And other teams in other markets are hosting fan. So we're hopeful we're confident in the plan and we appreciate on support. We've gotten from medical experts who helped us put that together. At Herbie. Thank you so much world taking a moment to chat with us. You mentioned. Disciplined for folks but there's also that element that you always have to conserve concern yourself with. So what kind of system is in place to ensure that the people who are charged to ensure that the safety policies are being followed are actively identifying and correcting violations. Such as not wearing a mask or when you're inside the stadium. For those of you who are at the stadium I, hope you'll agree with the statement. Talking with Dr Arnn. About. His what he has heard about our vent last Saturday. Protocols were followed. I was very impressed with our fans and their ability and their compliance with. Putting on their mask as soon as they are approaching someone you, I was very impressed that parking in tailgate area they were wearing masks for the most part it, and this is not an excuse and I wanted to be crystal clear on this. We have to do a lot more to your question to continue to communicate to make people aware that is really important even in your seats to wear your mask. But for all of us in Kansas City I used as example, Doctor Sills from the NFL, the other day and he he actually felt it back to me. That's the exact same situation in Nashville. About our experience over the last few months where we're going out to restaurants and we're actually interacting in public, we're going to schools You know my experience. This past weekend in the plaza going to a restaurant with my wife is very consistent with our experience across any sort of public interaction soon as we put our mascot. And when we're traversing to the restaurant, we put our mascot. We see the hostess to get our seat where we ever Mascow we walk your table, we have a mask on, we sit down and ten, we take our mascot. We don't put it back on in between eating and drinking. Right. So our normal process is that and I think that's one of the things that came across on Saturday was you know I talked to a few season ticket members and I said I need to enforce this. I need to reinforce the importance of wearing the mask in the stands and the dad looked at me and said mark. I wore them ask everywhere you told me to. I'm sitting in seat. There's no one within ten feet me and with my family who I. Sleep with an eat within and spent all my time was without a mascot I appreciate it but it's ninety five degrees in hot. I took my mascot for a minute. And I said look I hear you I, hear you loud and clear. But as we get more people in his, we're closer together we had more interactions more. Cross traffic we all have to be disciplined, and that's really where we are. So to your question enforcement, we'll have more people will have more staff will have more messaging will you'll see some stuff this Saturday, which is very in your face seionage. You know we're GONNA walk up and down aisles with little sign that says, Hey. Where your mask even if you're sitting so we got a lot to learn a lot to work through and we need a lot of cooperation from our fans to make this accessible. Go to nate Taylor. Go. Ahead Nate. Mark, thanks for doing this. Again, I have two questions as well. for FC DALLAS FCC first game the team made a decision to make a gesture during the national anthem. They received a booming from fans. I'm just wondering how that's what a situation has an impact on the chiefs if players wants to make a similar gesture before after the national anthem and then secondly to go to what you guys have done with indigenous people and try to understand how to better position do organization a correct manner I. Think you mentioned earlier how a purple heart was sort of a denomination in terms of understanding the situation just what did you learn yourself from those communications and then what would you try to express the fans who may also? Not. Follow that rule if they come to the games that season. Two Very. Different angles on questions. So the first one I would say we learned a lot from the Dow situation I think I would across sports learn a lot from that situation and we take all that learning into what we're talking about here. I think to your second question about the American Indian. and what I've learned. I'd say I've been rebid redundant on this. So I apologize what we've been doing this for six and a half years. This isn't a new issue for US and I shared some personal stories of you know the first few meetings Johnny learning reached out to take. We have coffee and he explains Sorta here's how this is viewed in here. Some of the issues that we should be discussing we set up a a larger meeting with people and got into the depth of that and I walked away from their first meeting you know a little bit embarrassed about my lack of knowledge. And a little bit inspired about if you have the knowledge, it becomes pretty clear. Now, everybody's GonNa have opinions on all these issues and I respect that. But for me. Personally. I didn't understand what a headdress Orban's was. represented. And to have. American Indian explain the sacredness of that and how every single feather is earned and what it means in their community. It's a pretty easy answer. Let's educate people. Let's share that story. Let's create awareness around that and you know the great thing about her working group is that there's good discussion about how do we do that and then how do we have set a realistic goal? and. The realistic goal we had was if we can just explain this to Fan Messina Parking Lot, he's wearing a headdress. We feel confident we'd convert them into. You know you can face you can paint your face. You can wear crazy how you can wear a wig a headband. You can wear jewelry you can. You can create your own character do all that a fan. But. I understand you know just throwing the headdress on because you bought it at a five and dime store. I think it's cool. It's not. Going to Blair sturrock off grid ler. Mark and just following up on that the You All I. Guess. Last week when you announced a headdress in the face painting also surged the. You're looking at the head shop as well. Understood what what goes into those discussions. Along the lines. Of the discussion we had around headdress and War Bonnet. And Face Bait. Education. Again. Redundant on the story but. The drum came back to arrowhead as part of trying to bring the traditions and honoring the divisions that were started municipal. We've all seen many of us have seen that black and white footage of cheerleaders banging the drum players came down the walkway through this stands in municipal and we were trying to figure out ways that we could bring that back again a little bit embarrassed and inspired that we didn't realize the sacred position of the drum. In the American Indian culture. When that was explained to us, we went to them and said, okay how do we make this work? What are our options? What are the things that we can do and that's where we came up with the day came up with the idea and share with us the idea of blessing on the four directions blessing the drum itself acknowledging were isn't can creating again awareness education So the drum has become a very big part of the era experiences become a very big part of the opening of our games We've we started to work and start some discussions about. Trying again to educate and make people aware of the secret position of the drum in American Indian culture. But also that it's it's seen as sort of the heartbeat of that culture and you know when you hear things like that, it's easy to latch onto that and say, okay, it's kind of a heartbeat of the stadium to and we can debate that right people can argue. Otherwise. But is a way to unify our fans. Anyway is a way to bring people together at that moment and other moments throughout the game. So how do that now we do in a respectful way and that's working on right now I think one of the best things that has come out of this for us as an organization and the groups that we are working with. Is Understanding that it's going to take some time. This is an overnight is these aren't things that we're going to be successfully changed one way or the other overnight, and we're going to continue to work on that, and that's that's the communication we had around the drum. Darren Smith Dan. First of all mark. Thank you so very much in. Glad. Our attorney I kinda got three questions I'm asking quickly but the organization what what is the justification doing these pandemic times to quote unquote price scout four, hundred, fifty percent on the ticket prices, for example, or the season ticket member who complained about their ticking for forty dollars to sixty dollars. Now it's two hundred and sixty dollars for that same exact seat second I know you all partner with a High V. has it been? Any discussion with them about why they don't have stores in the third district, and since you all reside in the Fifth District I know both Patrick entire enough credits you would spearheading voter registration drive I'm more interested in specifics not generalities on this but again, you are reside in the third district I appreciate everything that you all are doing nationwide however as a voter as a resident and a former committee man someone who's around local and national campaigns what have you all done specifically To this point and who are some of the powerbrokers within the third and Fifth District that you've met with a regarding registered voters because I? Haven't seen anything personally I've offer my services to help a registered voters because I've done that before and then finally within that we seventy days until election day what can we expect from the organization and a team? On. Election. Day that will help African American voters in Kansas City in third and fifth. District. Get out to the polls because it's not necessary in overland. Park Olathe Blue Springs North Kansas City. So I like some specific able to give that. Okay I might ask you to remind me. Let me start with voter registration. And I probably disagree with you that it's not unnecessary in other in other communities because. Suppression Suppression less registeration in photo engagement. I personally believe is very important. and. The people exercising the right to vote I personally believe is very important. To your question what we're doing and how we're doing it So I, think Patrick Tiring others really proud I personally and I know we're really proud to be associated with those guys in in their efforts I appreciate the they've mentioned that we've had those discussions and I've been in those discussions. We have some plans to do things in around this election that are going to be focused on number one awareness. Of the importance of voting. Number two creating awareness of the ways people can register to vote the ways people can engage and doing that through the experts in that space rise devote some of the League is working with somebody we are actively working with today they've met with us as organization, their male our players are going to meet with our staff as well as our stadium staff to make sure they're maze aware of the opportunities they have to register to vote and to vote. To your question on third district I think one of the most compelling things we can do to address that directly. Is We've got a plan right now, which is not final and I'll share with you all were committed to doing it. But, it has some challenges. We WanNA make arrowhead a polling location. We want to create an opportunity for people to come to Arrowhead and vote. And in addition to that with awareness, you're GONNA see a lot of things around the highest points of awareness for us as an organization they're getting focused on voting and the awareness of voting and ways to vote one of the reasons that I personally and I think this organization believes that that's a that's a platform that we need to get behind is the beauty of the vote. You can have different opinions you can vote for different people but vote, and that's really what we're trying to engage in. Your question, a heavy we've had a lot of discussions about harvey and their expansion plans I. honestly don't have a specific answer for you on whether they've looked at those districts We've been working for many years since I've gotten here with leaders in the city on the food desert issue, and how do we create more opportunities to create healthy options within those communities. And your first question was about as you put it price gouging. So. Let me just say this on on that issue because I've seen some reports on it. What we did in putting together our plan for how do we take a stadium from seventy, six, seventy, five, seventy, six, thousand seats down to sixteen thousand seats and equally, and fairly distribute those tickets are season ticket members. As you can imagine when you do the math, it's pretty quickly you can't. So what we did was we said all season ticket members will have the opportunity to move their tickets to twenty one. There'll be benefits and incentives to do that. We've locked in their pricing flat pricing for next year, they have the opportunity to win free tickets to games on. There are a lot of different benefits that are in the season ticket. Sales staff has done a great job on. And then we sat down and said, how do we make this fair and equitable in terms of the tickets we do have. On the pricing issue. In May when our schedule May winter schedule was released. We announced our single game ticket price. In May. When we announced those prices, we are assuming we're going to have seventy, six thousand people in the stadium and those prices were based on a lot very complicated algorithms and data. We use to understand the market and understand what the value of those tickets are in this Martin. Before we reduced to sixteen thousand seats before we went through any of these changes. We set those prices. Those prices. We haven't changed those prices. They're exactly what they were. Those are single game prices and they're based on the value of those tickets in the marketplace. I know there's been a lot and we completely understand and expect the response because it is a significant jump. Number One. Value having season ticket having season ticket plant. You have the benefit of those prices, those ticket prices being much below market value, but you're committed to the full season. Single game option gives you the option to pay a little more in some cases a lot worth because you're buying one game. So you're not. You're not obligated by the full season you're buying one game in you're paying with the market rate is now a defend market rate and I think most of you who are in this. Interested in this issue, probably have already done research. Were Cre-. Good from a data standpoint and algorithm standpoint and our team of understanding what the tickets really worth. And being below that number. So even though again, acknowledging that their significant jumps. PERSON BUYS A TICKET TO OUR HOUSTON TEXANS game today at the price that we're selling at. Can put that in secondary market that Mitt and make more money hundreds of dollars more. based. Location in some cases, you know four hundred dollar ticket is going thousand dollars on the secondary marketplace. So we're trying to do is be fair. But represent the market. Let's go to Tarez pay interest. Hey Mark how you doing. Thank you for doing this here. you know. Just. Kind of following up on the pricing model how have sales been going for? You guys you not like I asked you that every year but with these prices being above the norm at high sales been going in. One more the the passion of your fans as it kind of wherever's set does that kind of speak to that as well the passionate glance. Well to to your first part of the question of how sounds gone exactly as we expected. And I I get the data center parents saying things like that but it's really our sales team. Tyler Kirby. Tyler at the people who are in that department for us, they really know their business and. When you look at what the projections were going to be as you can imagine her as united had enough discussions to know kind of how I'm wired on these things. So there's a pretty high expectation pre bar and exactly where we're going to be and how we're going to be our projections has to be right exactly where we going to be. The demand is. It it's an interesting way of doing it because we're doing tenure going back to the point of fairness we had to figure out a way to give every single season ticket members an opportunity, but we've had longer tenured. Georgia tenured season ticket members. So we've gone in waves and allowed the longest tenured season members the opportunity to buy I then the next. Then the next thing we're probably I won't have exact were probably only thirty percent through. Our seizures and take a members and The interesting part at least looking at the data is you've got a lot of people longer tenured. season-ticket members again, it's a mix but if you look demographically could have some people who may be medically challenge may have conditions maybe in our older demographic and maybe less likely to want to come to a game where they've got to go through all these protocols and do all these things We believe that as we get our projection show as we get closer to the newer tenured season ticket members, the percentage of people who buy within those pods are GonNa be much higher. But we really set out our model set out a goal which is going to be tough to achieve what we think. We're GONNA get there that every single season ticket over whether you're a fifty year plus season took remember whether you signed on with US last year for the first year will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to games this year. When you talk about seventeen thousand tickets, sixteen thousand tickets. It's it's tough to figure out where we feel like we're trending towards that. All right guys we got time for a few more questions of SCO with Sam knowing you're next. Good Sam. Mark thanks for doing this. With. The the pricing is for follow up on some. Your focus is the health part of it. Right of you know getting the protocols in place and all that, but there has to be a financial this tomb just wondering, was there sort of a standard that you guys had to hit on? You know making this worth it for lack of a better term making sure that that you would have enough money to make this worth it. Yeah. I know that question has been out there nationally as well as locally. The numbers don't pencil out. You can't. You can't really make the numbers work. We talking about that that amount of tickets. So, this isn't about that. This is about creating an experience and continuing the experience at. Arrowhead. Giving fans the opportunity to be there for some really special moments. To some may sign sound a little bit. Contrived but but honestly. We're raising a banner. On September tenth and we want our fans to be part of that. We're really struggling with fact that only sixteen thousand are going to be able to be part of that in live and in person but that's a that's a lifelong memory and it's going to be different. It's not gonNA be exactly what we wanted. But. It is. Something was really important to says a franchise and I will speak for family on that I mean that was that was a big driver on figure out a way to get our fans in safely. They need to be part of this, and that's been a big driver for us as a business. San. Mateo and San. Marcus don't this just to take from from your leadoff thing about the fans you mentioned that it's GonNa take compliance to make this work what sort of the process of enforceability for those that aren't being compliant in the stadium. Yeah. So we'RE GONNA continue to learn and continue to. Try to understand. How we can better force that. As again again, I'll I'll say the you'll see some new things. This weekend was sign aging with more staffing focused on that issue specifically walking up and down the aisles making sure they're they're just reminding people. To put their masks on we don't want to be in a situation where we're. Evicting someone or arresting someone or anything like that. But we think that we have enough systems of communication place where we can enforce that. It's to protect all of us. And we can get into some science conversations about. Distance and volume in one of the big things we have to advantages we're an outdoor stadium. but we also have to listen to the experts. The experts were telling US yeah you're outdoor stadium but you're not just sitting eating dinner you're standing and cheering and yelling and screaming, and those are all things factor into the risks associated and those risks are significantly decreased if you were a mask. So those are the kind of things refocused on. Closing out with certain Petra Gladsden. Mark thank you for the time. Like everyone said, we appreciate you taking the time out today. I'm curious just specifically, you touched a little bit on the subject of you know when the question was asked about the Dallas soccer team kind of the reaction I spoke with one reported the other day who said that he has spoken with the Players Association and that they are definitely planning demonstrations that they are coming. Assuming that's the case. Are you going to be working with them to be a part of that demonstration? We had bill Brian. In Houston say he will be meeting with his players are are the chiefs coaching staff the organization Clark Hunt working actively to be a part of the demonstration or is it simply going to be a case where you stand back and say, okay whatever you guys WanNa do do it. I'd go back to. Some of the things we said. When all of this started to become as big an issue as it's become. And is definitely something that needs to be addressed. It's definitely simply needs our attention. If you go back to what end of May beginning June. A We as an organization. We sat and talked about this as an organization players, coaches, football operations staff, our own executive staff, and we made a decision to shut our website down. And and just say right now, the important thing is to really one of our principals unite our community. Unity is more important now than ever and we need to continue to do that and that's been our theme. When the players video came out early on in this process, I was really proud to be part of the team that said we gotTA. We gotTA support this. We got to go out with a staving with the first day I believe the first. Team. In the National Football League to respond to that video and. Most proud of the message we sent that night and it was late at night and it was Clark myself and a few others on phone call just saying. The message. We want people here in the message. Want our players to here is that we love. And Support Them Were part of a family just like any family Barra passions on all sides. And what we said is in discussions that I've been with our players with Clarke and with coaching with Brad than with others. But slutty other with support each other and let's respect. Each Other. And that's really what we're GONNA continue to do we. We're GONNA meet and have more discussions about this. And you'll be hearing more from us as we go but that's that's really the the the approach that we take to issues like this. Mark, we appreciate your time today. Thank you. Thanks guys. Appreciate it. See Guy soon.

113: Stage 15 | Ceret Andorra la Vella | Tour de France 2021

"You are listening to to lifland cycling. Podcast i twenty. Twenty one to powered by super thespians and engine management for committee athletes and coaches stage. Fifteen today waiting on the la. Bela where are we. Kate where andorra angora anymore detail the not we. I'm looking forward to your architectural criticism of andorra in tonight's episode. Yes toronto unfortunately will not be hearing your tale via you. Were going to do. Not but you've passed that responsibility back to me with many regrets. I offer my condolences. Well anyway i'm going to offer on the architectural front. I could see you taking all of as roma nintendo very impressed by you in the car. Today this is the last time you'll be joining us in the podcast. We will be hearing your audio diary. The last installment of my diary francois tommaso as well there. Hello francois louw kate. I was impressed by you today because as we were put on dora. I said to you kate. Do you have your visa for working on door. Your work fees already. I knew that. Not flicker atoll said you said nice. Try shots down like a dog. I was very impressed with that. Anyway you don't need a work visa but we have the left fronts and it does feel different doesn't it. This is one reason why lionel's not here anymore. He doesn't like andorra. francois your fan I guess you get used to it. It's like it's not like monaco like a cheap monaco in the middle of the mountains. You know because at least in well. I'm in the architecture. I don't want to overlap them. The you know architecturally is pretty similar. And you've got the same luxury shops and boutiques but but only monaco newcomb afford anything. Whereas in dora while you can you know it's duty free so people actually come here to buy cheap stuff you know. So what we heard from jelavic in last night's episode of how he loves under and obviously lots of writers love andorra thirty-eight of them of the rightist is starting. This of franz. Live and underrun. I'm sure they live here because they love it. They love it. Charms it's mountains. It's his allies. There's nothing to do with the tax situation airtel house you're driving into under a. We actually drove past joe. Laverick 'em he was. I recognize recognizes team kit and he was standing outside a an apartment block which she said was home to ten world through a pros and coming down the mountain into the capital here. We can't passing professional writers who are training or going to see. The children fronts one of the other things that i think scores against door me on for line lists every time. We're here as you can probably hear. The traffic is horrendous in the capital city here. But that's probably because the francis here if we were here cited. The turtle franz obviously wouldn't be as busy as but you've always got sense of it being very clogged up anyway. Unexciting stage today. Let's hear oh a by happened. Cates not doing it i will. We started in france and seri and we came out to on dora. La laviola with can share responsibility on this. If you on do you want to chip. It was fifteen hundred. Ninety one point five kilometers a really really difficult lots and lots of claiming and the first attacker of the day. Was thomas again. Who else what form that. She was not so much a breakaway. It was more a split in the pendleton. Venar said at the finish. He had no actually intended to go in the break and found him south there by accident. We did wonder about the of his team tactics because they've of course only got five writers left than the race. Is this going to be. Your chip boby is obviously like i know the the. Yeah the ins and outs but it was interesting. Yes because they left yona's bingoed. Who is their guy in the part of the peleton with only my tuna soon which was kind of perplexing to me. Because i don't quite think they're the same size so that if something happened to yona says bike who's going to anyways. It seems like kind of an move. But actually i think things kind of coalesce as time went on when they had of course like not to spoil. What happened at the end but Accessible day for them suspended at the same time you know while came back to help eunice in the end obviously but so were they disorganized or was this actually just part of the plan or do they have a road. Captain that was. This is actually quite an interesting question. Thing is you can reverse engineer. That's true we can sit back at the end of the day and reflect on an absolute massa cost visible because they fought on three different fronts. And really you can. Argue came up trumps on all three fronts. Three writers in the breaker. Which as you say. Kate was perplexing with you on his finger goal in the fight for the podium left. I mean with might tennis but you could say isolated behind the climbing domestic now accent or click with venar in the move at the farm. Was stephen cries. Quick onset koos from team. Any aus- grenadiers were jonathan. Koster vehicle and dylan van barwa. Don martin might woods. Were there from israel. Startup nation vince vincenzo. Nearly jillian bernard kenny out of soul from trek. Afraid her amusing comment from a belgian colleague of ours who had phone edward tunes the other night on that. He was asked who he was sharing with. He said lewis squall. The shark to shneebly apparently it across the room. I feel more like a goldfish in this third of france. So they were well represented in that front group and there as well no the right that we find some one hundred already them groupama. Fpg who've not done an awful lot in this. Maybe because few of them. I think have been suffering from stomach problems including w. kadewe and bruno ameri. I saw him in real pain at the end. Have pr test and he was doubled over with clutching his stomach and luton pain. He did an awful lot of work. I mean there was a moment in the race where group home after he really took responsibility with mirai and medina's fallon valentine wass Who were obviously working to help at wwco do try and win the stage and there were other writers there including catanha obviously in the fight for the kingdom jersey as polls. Who was there too and michael matthews research. Try and get points in the green jersey competition so that was a bagel group at the front behind that. You forgot barring victorious. I wasn't in the name everybody because it was there was. This is instrumental in the fight for the king of the mountains. Sorry kate sorry you're right. My motto more rich was there. I think that's why he wants to me. That's because no it's because polls was there. And he sprinted for king in the mount he's now in the king of the mountains jersey because he sprinted and while pulls was there didn't they yeah but he was there with lots of other people yes he yet held he had helped so front burner more. Was there i needed to say. Oh surgery and i was there on tourism so in coverage everybody a lot of people there where teams small team. Let's let's say team. Let's upfront that you know. Had instrumental roles. Asian presence was significant. Absolutely right while you were going to do it. and as i say drew palm. ft she took control and the got to ten minutes behind you. Eighteen memories seemed happy for for them to go. The big norwegian art stake along and was a familiar presence at the front of the bunch. He led for a long long time. Wow it's really noisy. Here's an m. The main interests upfront was kingdom mountains competition. It's become a a real focus of interest in this. Because we've got some really strong writers in contention for might was the jersey today. But he's being he was being challenged by what he was dethroned. Polls and neither can tana and surprisingly and those they were really Going for a knocking lumps. I of each other and art when it came to the sprints was obviously pretty powerful and he was i over the cold we moran we moran anymore and he was first out the top of the pe- finance and i had a polls and woods contaminate a big move on the port the end value era the highest that claim of this third of france and therefore the only garage prize for the first over the summit. He reached the top. I really impressive windy. Windy conditions out. There he went over alone before beinart. Polls and woods and a leading group of seventeen. form the descent gear martime. Meanwhile second overall is starting the day after being in the breakaway yesterday. He was starting to struggle and he could not hold onto the yellow jersey group behind. There was a big descend before a six to claim and they called it betcha lease and which the writers kind of they they came almost into the the council here under la la and then this claim and then another descent back into the the competition and it was a really interesting quite short very steep watsa hairpins climb and there were. There was interest in front. And behind can tana attack that group but It was go do followed him. He'd been setup oversea then set coups and alejandro valverde and cousteau verdy emerges the strongest on the climb but koos spot a weakness involve verde pressed home his advantage and a little gap. He's right twenty. Five seconds clear over the summit. I fancied valverde to watch him on the descent. He didn't the guy kind of held the same and koos came in to win the stage through his sunglasses into the crowd. I was just a nice gesture and Well a great win for him and a great win for you. Move is ma am already held on for second head of polls he's a guinea and good arrow who finished and the minor placings behind them. We saw some really violent attention ban. O'connor whose after his stage when kind of yoyo with a little bit he had a go m audio diaries. Of course we'll no doubt here has kind of stage in our next columbia zero. I was very impressed by you. On his bingo on the climb he was taking it to tiny pug hr. It was really struggle. nevertheless they were having a go. It was interesting. Because i made the joke to To richard i said and this was in reference to also to julia. Zulia basque country. Where he did something similar said may we all find someone who loves us like yoenis finger. God loves sucking the wheel of taddei. Pa- gotcha well he He did that but you also had to go and that was it. Well yeah i mean. They're they're scared to have a go even so rigoberta iran have we go. We need to mention any oscar. Because once again they made the pace hard they did manage to isolate pagon. Char found ball and kosovar could be in the front of drop by to help without effort. And there's lots going on there. There's a fight for the podium. As well as the the fight to topple forgot charter. Flight is indeed possible. But you know we saw all of those writers counter pas finger goal iran o'connor they all had to go today. Paul gotcha was prey on them. Fight yeah martin. Was the big loser. He dropped seven places. Ninth overall. Paul gotcha remains seattle rigoberta roundup to second bingo up to third king of the mountains polls is now in the polka-dot jersey with might rid second contam- third and von art an accidental.

Happy and i can submit responses in audio. Well that would be good. That would be good. Yeah three cup copies or we can just we can just ask you so listen we i mean invisible. Where the where the talk of the day. I was messaging our friend. brian nygaard. Who joins us at the jiro. Of course a pro dane and he has been quite unhappy. It's fair to say The way that you movies have ridden and support are in support of unicef finger. Who in the absence of premature chocolate has emerged as move vista's main contender. I suggested last week that they were deliberately playing down his chances in order to re remove pressure from him not put pressure on him and perhaps to somehow implicitly poop pressure and chuck. I don't. I don't think that's the case i it is like they are fighting this tour on different fronts there. No it's not old for finger certainly van however at the finish he did say he didn't mean to go in the breakway that once he was there he thought he would go for the king of the mountains points because he was there and he might as well he also said his coach is not in favor of him writing the tour the way that he is making it really hard from south with tokyo and the olympics coming up. He doesn't think he should be digging. So deep in chasing stage wins king of the mines points etc etc and. He said that he starved disagrees. He thinks he needs. It's hard three weeks as he can possibly get which is why he's giving himself and i mean i was surprised to see him going full goss for these kingdoms points today. Actually the finish also said something. I know that usually strategies are actually decided you know afterwards after the stage you know you look back. That's what we're trying to do when actually in real action you know you have no no plans whatsoever but while advance suggested that defied that yet three guys up up the road men that one could wait for unicef in a gun in case of trouble. They didn't they didn't have to do that. But if you if you look at what any gonna. They actually did that The of euro and borrowed and fumbled actually stopped at the top of the climb to wait for the carapace group. So obviously this was a plan move from ineos grenadiers. So there's no reason to not to believe that you movies at this option. Might as well that evan. To three guys in the front men won't could let himself get dropped in case of trouble and go back to help us vinegar in which case whatever the outcome is what it is we so while you butter. It's outs in the climbs for the popular jersey and we so sept- koos go for a stage victory saying the end being the window. God always in the same place in third looking like one of the most serious. You know rivals for polka tra. Sep cus wins the second stage win for movies men in this in this race and in the end almost perfect scenario for this is perhaps controversial but i think part of i think the honest bingoed is kind of built up of the same composition. The same kind of disposition as taddei for gotcha and he's very calm. Very level headed very much an aggressive writer who stays in the wheel of who he needs to stay in the wheel of and so they're probably more comfortable leaving him to do that. Than maybe someone like la chew has sort of a more strategic slash team oriented way of controlling things. It's just kind of interesting to see. Maybe perhaps it's like a generational thing. I think it's more the he doesn't probably feel that he's earned his stripes. I i watched his body language. Finished we'll hear from him. In a moment i. I watched greece near men. Come in and give him an embrace him and say you know great job. And i am the way they i don't think bingo himself has any issue. I i think he is pinching himself. The position that he's in he doesn't feel entitled to deny to clip the wings of var or set koos and like. I say we can look back now on a phenomenally successful day for visceral but they gambled i mean they gone. Donald hugely is is okay. It's fine to have have to writers up the road but set. Seppuku says a guy who could have been a great ally for fingal in the in the yellow jersey. if he's ten minutes up the road and bingo has a puncture earnings. A bite change. That's no good the ten minutes up the road. What would have been the point to have set goose wassenaar and soon cross bike in jersey group helping you. Venus more conventional tactics oppose it is aggressive one for third place in paris. I mean this is not now we think of his mar- are really. I don't think you will vis main goal These days is stage. Wentz is of course is not juicy positions so they went for the stage win. Which is what every team wants. And if on top of it Vinegar finish finish this on the in paris then fair enough well. Let's hear from being got the finish. Let's hear what you said. I tried a few times. And the yeah. It's like nobody was stronger than the other in the favorite group today. So but at least i drive in. I came in together with the best guys. They're still to really are mountain. Status left invest. If it's a bit of changing minds when when ramos went out of the door and the and yeah. I mean. I think i'm growing into it. Yeah i didn't expect to be like especially on the moment to states. I didn't expect be having that great feeling especially in the second week day by day and we'll see what is going to be indian podium odium if it's a place it's no i take it easy and we'll see what it's what it's going to be. I was it to be in that group today. With all the attacks going fast attack on a tech so stop and go and of course it's also nice to be there and so what the what the from you when he just sell each other after the race he said congrats with the wind up. So that's really really nice. I guess we're going to celebrate a little bit tonight as you say the i league was probably one of the worst you could have. We lost three months. We lost three guys. We lost robert. And also don't eat but and we lost our main. Dc guys so so. Yeah i mean we lost pretty much everything we're fighting back and i should say it's going well with statesman. Keep going if. I would have any problems. That two guys out the front. And so yeah i never congrats. I never felt like that was yoenis bingo very happy and i think he should be happy because he looks strong. He's prepared to take it to char- when he attacks. I'm not saying he puts sharon difficulty. He looked sprightly. You know he's he's obviously recovering. Well he's he's he's going i did. I did laugh the finish because some of the teams tonight were having to basically one hundred hundred meters beyond the finish line. Look at that. There's a metaphor visit my car on a breakdown. Laurie i mean it would be. It would have been a great man. Oh daniel free would have been a great metaphor if they'd had about day as a is agreement for anyway not it'd be daniel off to find the football in. The pump is to be a man in a hurry. Yeah hundred meters beyond the finish line. There was a tent with pcr test. Covert test for some teams and after polling their their asses two hundred kilometers over the mind since four four and a half five meters a climbing. Some of them had to go for a covert test immediately including bingo. Who emerged from the ten shaking his head. As though he'd highs his brain tickled which is a feeling that we can relate to those of us. These horrible cova tests. But yeah i mean. He seems to be perfectly relaxed about the situation. An interesting contrast. I mean another writer. Fighting for the podium out to second overall nine is the rigoberta iran and we did see around attack which is very rare which is quite rare. He also two of his teammates were on the road in the pilots. And ruben guerrero. Who wrote very well again. I suppose the pilots finish and asked him whether you know. There's obviously a parlow there between i mean e ef got more writer still in the race but the fact that those guys are being allowed to go up in those kind of moves is quite interesting to. It's been a pattern on these stories. It's quite interesting with the breakaway but usually in who breakaways you. You really have. We know ambitions whatsoever. The breakaways with heads in this in. This store has always been massively. Impressive with john could have been juicy containers guys with ambitions for the focal jerseys. Guys we real. I mean who were really worth. I mean book in malima sept- koos. These are not guys who have that day. You know that our guest amply these know that these guys can win and will win grant osagie so the pattern and this has been really exciting and most of the of the teams is funny because we got this small little yellow jersey group of about ten guys. You know like five or six minutes down and other franz every team and including the teams at two three guys which is very interesting. I think it speaks to just how strong and how dominant pa- gotcha is. He's got a five minute lead on everyone else at a certain point. If you wanna walk away with this from this tour with something you to put guys in the breakaway. You have to take risks. You have to do those things and it paid off for yumbo today but it easily couldn't have i mean there's some very strong writers who are still in the hunt for something this tour and that's why the stations don martin said he thought was. The strongest had ever been indeterminate friends. I put that to nielsen pilots at the finish. Well up the road today in bay that move of big hitters super tough super tough As soon as i came up into the breakaway. I could tell that it was going to be a really really hard day. And honestly the headwinds on the on the last couple of climbs Did make it a bit easier. But over the top of inva- lira and then facials were just incredible. Pace was so high and we spent a lot of time up here in Apnea indoor i have an apartment in so resident here and i knew the climb super well In that is by far the fastest. I've ever gone up. these climbs. it was insane is interesting. Your team onion vizma oversee guys place highly overall but also men in the break as well. It's not just a sign of how far pocket charters ahead of everybody else that you're allowed to go for your ambitions as well. Yeah i mean. I think no matter what position you're in Even if we go was only a few seconds behind pogue. hr in dc. I think it's just in our interest to be in the breakaway to if we need to come back because we wouldn't be able to follow rigo and pull him off the front to to get away from pogue. Hr in the stage. So if he does that in his own and we're ahead and then we're up there to help him. Then that's just a clever strategy if you can pull it off. Yeah so what. We see more of that in the final week. Yeah we hope we hope All we can do is just keep raising our bikes and Folks on our race and hope that rigo just Continues to stay solid nielsen pilots the ef education nipple writer i also spoke to mark donovan. The team dsm writer making his debut editor. Franz he vuelta last year he found himself in that very distinguished company today. Not not big break away. They've got a really tough tour team. Dsm but he seemed quite happy to finish. Don martin just said he thought i was the strongest break they've ever been in the third of franz. It's not what it felt like. Yeah pretty much. Yeah looking around. When it's a form that was like we've got about half of these guys can win today or more. Yeah it was pretty crazy. Crazy schoenberg. I was looking. I felt really good on the and i On you you're just Just to get in but yeah it was nice and i felt good day but just didn't have the legs on the final climb and then i had to be unlucky. Punter slow puncher. So i took a while to change your bike so it wasn't ideal much in the end the conditioner. There's a whole day in strong wind as well. Yeah it was just constantly ice on the back of the neck water all the time. It's kind of nice being because the car and the fumes behind you all the time and then yeah it was There was a time when After the break. I formed on the returned onto the main road as a few attacks going and no one wanted to take control but then luckily after took control and they just about auto into a headwind so that was kind of nice for everyone else to impress. You mean in the big names and strong writers but who particularly impressed you. Oh i gotta say The two french guys who worked for go to i'm he was in both my first the brakes. I've been in the ulcers well then also Address as well. They just pulled all day and then yeah i think everyone else is just Pretty happy to sit in the world. Are you feeling being into your front. Yeah i felt really good to that every as for it. How did they unlucky Trying to get into break so many times. It's just not quite worked out but today it's really did and hopefully going into the final week i can kind of build on. This is the third week. Yeah definitely the first half of the first week some of the movie. Some big fights Yakusho i mean. Got nothing to lose as well try. Science book is supporting the cycling podcast at the twenty twenty one. The science in sport fueled by science. Thank you very much. Indeed to sciences sport are longtime sponsor and we have been running our super sunday competition. Lionel is in charge of administering guests. The winner of sunday's stage today and if your name is drawn the slight can podcast casquette. You will win eighty pounds of scientists for goodies. Lionel has not let me know yet whether anybody named koos as a potential. When i'm sure they did so i'm sure we'll have a winner but i'll probably say who is in tonight's episode economically the competition by going to the cycling podcast dot com. And you'll see. The details are about to guess. Who will win next sunday stage in paris and well. Maybe it will be marked kaunda's because he survived today's stage. If you want twenty five percent off your scientists sport goodies to scientists board dot com and enter the code kate. Katie sleeping saw space looking at twenty five k. Shacking mariner phone. I'm looking forward to your architectural highlights. And lowlights dora kate but yeah cavendish made another tough day for him. He was off the back early. Got back on. Well looked after by michael. Markov and tim clark and others lost another rival today. Nasa were nassar behind finishing on the podium. Well a few times. On the francie. You abandoned as they say so. Yeah i mean once again. If the more calf gets near paris the less opposition will have on the last day. He was behind him. Struggling in front of the broom-wagon for a little bit and Eventually called a day. A biggest is actually one of the stories of we weren't going to cover at some point. The the rebirth of behind him. And we've been so focused on cavendish but behind me has also been really close to stage when this tour back to probably his best which is kinda gone. It's a story that's going on told in a way and maybe we'll ask. Connor swift are direst For more a by behind the and his trip he's like the race sonically. Well today i mean stage went for sap koos a guy who has often promised a result like this. You know it's another classic case of roget's was still in the race. He wouldn't have been in a position to win the stage. He's somebody's capable of for a long time and but when the responsibilities being given to him he sometimes struggled to deliver you know when he's given team leadership or when he's been given opportunities he really took it today and i was really impressed. With the way that you held off valverde. A wily was there was an interesting pattern again. Actually kind of explains what. I was saying before about the new patterns with these breakaway groups with lots of strong guys in there. There's really been a divine our thing in teams between the juicy. The real jesse guys. I mean the real jesse guys not the guys might ever transfer one day become a juicy writer and the guys who might have the potential to jesus writers don't have the mind for it and for stage wins. I think there's a case for sabco's if you don't give him too much responsibility you don't put too much burden on his shoulders and he goes for the stage. Wins is yeah. He's the kelly. I the long interview for fidel over with all and tell told me that the first five or six years of his career had been a nightmare because he was considered as a potential jesse container being the best young rider in twenty eleven and the five years. That followed said. we're nightmare you're under pressure. Every day you fear in the crash you fear into. Let your teammate sound. And he said the day when jonathan voters told him. Forget the gopher. Sage wins if it was a newborn rider and enjoy the job again. I think that most of the guys wear the front of the type of writers. you know they. they're great. writers are going to win a stage. Major to sage thoughts energy writers sept- coups is absolutely this type of rights. I had a message from lizzy banks to say nice to finally see set coups trying now the rest of us when we are not trying. Because i've said on the podcast before that. He just often looks so easy for sap coups when he's been lieutenant rogue lich there have been moments where he's sorry rug which has been struggling until this wheel and kucice just writing on air. You know he looks. He looks so sublime moderated by his task of servitude. He's a classic climber. You know who when things are going well for him and he's writing. Well it just looks so so easy for him on. This is a yeah. This is a success. That has been a long time coming. He lives in under. He's one of the many lives on. Jury said his girlfriend was on the climb on her parents think she's from barcelona and not was inspiration for him today. Don martin was actually very emotional. Finish talking about his wife and twin daughters being near the finish as well. So yeah you really choked up talking about that. We're seeing a a really interesting. Bothell for the king of the mountains are kind of long. Discredited competition is like a consolation prize. Either a writer on the podium as one almost banks or it's been one by somebody a modest writer really targeting. What we're seeing here are early four kentuckiana polls was on venar baffling for real quality writers. Our houses it's adding luster to this. Competition is one of the real interesting points in the race. Now there's mountains until wednesday. I'm in until almost thursday. So most of the last week will still be mountains so more excitement on the hills on the climbs and and given that. Now it's it's it's one of the most interesting conditions and that all these guys and all these teams are going for it. I'm sure we'll have really animated racist from the start and we the kind of crit- with today is probably going to be reproduced in in in the future stages which is which is rather exciting. Well i spoke to the man now in the polka-dot jersey while polls finished. Here's what he had to say quite a battle. We're seeing for the kingdom jersey. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. It was a veteran for the most exciting race. At the moment. You're in jersey. Just now i mean a good day for you today. Yeah i know. I'm really happy rated the goal to get jersey back then we made it but still everything's really close chauve To focus on Six more days of racing six mondays gas and then hopefully we can keep it might. We'd said last night. You know ho matzos efforts costs here. The top of is almost as if you have to decide between jersey or stage with. It's how you feel as well. Yeah for sure like every spinach like maybe twenty thirty seconds and if you do five on a day at the end you are sprinting. Two minutes for gas and then the final climb Maybe committed with short. But the thing is if i want to go to the mountain jersey. You have to make sacrifices and it means you have to sprint and it also doesn't make it easier for match sprint so Yeah this is what. This is. The big rival. Do you think for the jersey. i still think Fanatic hoots container depends also with of course with out into finnish. Get points what you we. If they keeping giving the stage away your progress goes himself final question. We get on the stage when or being the kingdom of jersey. Well that was what pulls the man in the polkadot jersey interesting. You know at the to see von art going for and he was sort of looking back on that with a rueful expression Because you know it's funny to see a sprint. At the top of a climb between our polls woods catanha. I think he's going to be a realistic. And i was puzzled as to why he was putting so much into into snuffing. Those points really could be proven wrong of course while it still there. I think he just wants to keep himself in contention but yeah pulls his interesting. What you said about the how much those efforts take. You might would set the same last night. They these guys do really have to make a choice. King of the mountains are a stage although they all say they still won't both. I mean another writer today. You want to mention. Francois is the old dog alejandro verde. I was watching a french tv and they were quite confident of already would come back to couse there. I mean is the same generation. I was about to say and you'll for various reasons in race in spain and have been in. Net environment is obviously fan of alabama. Valverde i mean. There were two seven so in french on dollar ye means actually phonetically means. Put the old to sleep. You know but obviously yeller style. Obviously this stage didn't put the all men to sleep because he he. It came very to that. Eddie made it. Had he bitten koos to the to the line and wonder stage. I mean i said that. About gripe all the other as well but i mean this water can close. He would have been the the second oldest win over to the front. Just pinot me. I say pinot ceremony and not chair army in italian because he was belgian. In case you forget so yeah forty one and something would have been made in the second oldest win over to the front state. The other little thing i wanted to seize but yomata who you know who lost time in second place on lasted one. They like ben o'connor after gumbel. No after obama. If you look at the juicy tonight with actually well got back to normal. It's exactly the same. Today's before with deal not in the same in the same spot but is closer to the to then he was to To the front nine something down. Today's ago is now seven something down and actually made the kind of a break in ninth place in you know the because we bow is now a long way way so probably bouncer is seems to be out for his best results. Many cumby become be too disappointed about what happened. Today we move onto architecture. Kate now we drove into an indoor and these dark stolen can dominate their apartment blocks as we came down the hill into the county. Of what what your impressions though. You're you're an award-winning globally. Revered architecture critic what awards have. I won any words. No but i did give keynote lecture at yale which i guess counts ted. Talk as well. That's true that's true. A real authority. Yes of course but so i would say with architecturally. It's funny because remember when we were in tina. We talked about how ugly tina was which it is. I mean tina is like overblown chalets shell as inflated to the size of apartment buildings which show which is not a shell a. and should not be interpreted as a shell and should not be imitating mitch allies but i would say that within dora. It's a little bit interesting because it was like. Francois is like the glitzy architecture of monaco. But mixed with kind of a ski lodge vibe and it's all governed by this really dark stone that is to the region which can be quite lovely as a floor or something but whenever he building is covered in it it does create this kind of closed in oppressive effect at the same time. Andorra just kind of feels like a big tax free mall in the middle. What it is in the middle no good. In the middle of these like resplendent. Mountains. it's so funny to me to see like forever. Twenty one architecture or agm architecture as instead of like old beautiful resplendent agents things and so. It's this kind of mix of like high tech high gloss. Tourist living mixture with a penchant for the outdoors that doesn't quite penetrate the surface like a dozen tina where it's very clear that everyone here everyone in tina's doing outdoors tourism. They're skiing they're cycling. Whatever but here that kind of frost beneath the surface and that's why it looks more like a mall. It's not about historic place. It's not about place making. It's not it. Kinda can be anywhere. Were it not for this vernacular stone that exists that actually gives it its regional quality. That actually gives it. This are of a place that exists and its own kind of weird architectural style and also everything is new. It's like brand new curtain wall Ground floors granite tile eighties nineties. Two thousands twenty tenths new. Because if you look at the they've got really really work on the tourism side and in all their leaflets and publicity. They really advertise the old heritage. They have stood that they're very beautiful. Twelve eleven and twelfth century romanesque chairs. And make the make a big fuss of it and you know so obviously the try the must realize that the general architecture is a little bit to. How could i say trends transatlantic or transcontinental. Or whatever you can call it i guess you could call it global or global some let's say faceless and so because of it did they would make a real you know you can tell them make lots of publicity for their churches I guess that was an ambulance. There was a local not local firemen late for the the football much. Suppose anyways yeah Well obviously english guys are guys A little culture. Is there some culture francois. Well not all of it would be on endore. That's not actually lots of. We're having our photograph taken an actual photographer here an award winning photographer. I mean we talked about under a lot of good. There is culture here of course but we looked We overlooked totally. Siri the place where we started from two today. And actually if you happen to be in the area. Which is french catalonia Syrah is an amazing little place. It's called it's called a mecca. It's it's called the mecca of cubism. A fan of k. Just walk past and shouted. I heard her twitter moniker. That was quite extraordinary anyway. Sorry exact contextual. Serious called the The mecca of of cubism. It sounds strange. But actually it's it's it's a little town very little town but In in actually in the in the early twentieth century the guys cubist painters they were looking for a place to to go on holidays and ended up insane and this guy whereas workload deal do they would civic frank bertie avalon and manu and the funded place so great the the ask a good friend of of there's too good to come to syria to spend holidays with them. This guy was pablo picasso and so after picasso in there yet one gre- kissling picabo generally get a signal zach at unlock soutin. Chagall all dubuffet jiffy. All guys can to leave in in siri and and paint later. You had also poets like mexico or guillaume apollinaire. And so this place. This little village became actually known as a mecca of cubism because for decades. Lots of very very few were famous. Painters went to syria to just spend good sign Drink catherine wine A fun and paint and as a result you. Have you have a big museum now in in syria with worse by all these guys so you know very unlikely place for You know to be a kind of a struggle of of the greatest painters of the twentieth century. That that you are so if you happen to be in the area while domiciliary domino's museum it's a it's a. It's a pretty nice place to go. She's of the day so well. All of you have been on holidays in. Catalonia down to barcelona no have tried motto. You know mottos of fresh cheese may sometimes made of goes milk. Sometime makes goats mil With no salt added and is usually served with honey and so it's now the kind of traditional emblomatic cadillac desert now known as meli motto on lots of menus. If you if you go to anywhere in catalonia or in buffalo now on the menu will fundamentally motto. And you know it's it's one of the which bitch motto and honey which is really simple and really tasty very tasty as someone who say very nice as my catchphrase fry. Well we won't go back to a endara in the capital of one of the new capitals of of citing and the reasons why I become the kind of a capital of a second for many many many Pro riders. i mean. As i said i probably already yesterday when i asked matt white about it. He said he said tax heaven. So well i if he says it's while it's probably true The there was a tourist fact of the day on the on the stage today. Dipoto road at kennedy fifty through a little ton called pod and the mayor of this little town was totally unknown like three three years ago. And it's called junk sticks. And it was named by the president macro and the man in charge of the fight against governor nineteen and it it did so well at least in microns view. That is not the french. Prime minister is has been since july. Twenty twenty and the funny thing about Tax and the fight against in nineteen is when he became prime minister enjoyed. Twenty twenty in september was in the in some scarring yet and he was forced to stay out of action for more than a week because qassam them was tested positive for cuvee and was on the race today. They say he wasn't put off by the experience. We'll see tomorrow. You know what yeah. It was just before arrestee the last last year as well. It wasn't it when he joined the race. Absolutely so yeah. The little known mayor of a small town in the area is now the french prime minister. There was a curious fact of the day now for the song of the day. Well are we going to. We play with the song of the day before we do. Let's hear a little bit from andorra. Well he's not resident base being here for few weeks we heard from last night. Joel laverick who is also keeping all the atari for assis- year Which is being released as a a friend. Special to other writers read walters marilyn golo are also keeping on diaries and we've at least two of their episodes already for friends of the podcast. If you want to sign up go to the cycling. Podcast dot com. But here's josie cone of his day watching the twitter fronts today and he wasn't incredible event is to go and watch the tour. I mean it's everything you expect. More truly is a circus and especially in door. It shoots the whole country so i wrote down i wrote the bash. Elise awesome atmosphere absolutely incredible. Hundreds thousands of people got like fifty meters to the top and was turned around which was a bit of a problem because then the police letting ride down. So i'd like i'd ride hundred fifty meters get told by the police. I get told to walk. Then i'd ride wait till they're outside. Ride new to injure meters and just repeat that over and over again until i got to the bottom went down into a door that and watch wochit realized. He's quite difficult to watch it from a good viewpoint near the finish line without one of those special yellow line yards which are which richard and co have died. Unfortunately don't so back to the bottom of beverly's. I ended up watching him with a couple of the grenadier staff which was nice to chat some inglis guys. Just just. yeah the tour. I mean everything is. He's everything e don't see this side of a bike race when you're when you're competing you don't understand. The roads are close hours before. You've got to plan in advance where you want to be. I mean i feel like. I could write a whole like article on guy to watch that order. France i mean. I'm such a rookie. I i miss many things. I didn't during side and take water same thing. I didn't take food. Sorry just seventy things but the see. How quick they came asked was i. Just another league is is that it's the little things that's four helicopters always in the sky. There's a million more motorbikes and then the caravan i've never seen in my life i was kind of like a kid i wrote back up and then the team hotels au pair and kind of action is relatively recognizable. Jerseys get nye beach on the team. 'cause ours guy. It's just. I mean i kind of live in a race. I raised these worlds teams. But there's a part of me which was just like joe. Three years ago would have found. This insanely cool. I'm on his jaren. Twenty twenty one still finds it. Cool the car actually in a massive car park outside by my apartment. So i can see all that but now yes sorry richard. Invite me to to record tonight. Episode of the podcast put unafraid. I've got a date with with football coming home.

Nfl year after back to back seasons of five hundred plus yards the only difference in twenty twenty. One is a big one. No more sammy watkins on the club as he signed with the baltimore ravens this off season. No sammy means more potential.

So we'll see. If a similar off-season regiment allows hardman to take the next step So did a lot more film guys that i was a little bit unfamiliar with like thomas on looking at a little bit of keen dunlap film. Gaza coach read has worked within going back and looking at some more than organisms. Films will You know there were stains to take from john ryan as well on from backing back in philly It was a lot of things to take from those different different players.

New left tackle orlando brown junior discussing his off season film. Study of former. Andy reid left tackles trade. Thomas and king dunlap eagles who read worked with throughout the early and mid two thousands kudos to brown junior for talking the talk.

Nick bolton is now on this roster and bolton actually recently called hitchens the smartest football player he knows perhaps this idea of coming into camp lighter falls under that category as the league trends more and more pass i every year hitchens wants to keep up. We made some significant changes last year. which we believe the right things to do probably a year. We look at one changes implement this year. We feel like it's time to retire A lot of reasons for that is the right thing to do More will be running at arrowhead anymore. Continue the conversations.

The COVID-19 pandemics global ripple effects

"So here's where we are in this economy. Tell me, would you if you disagree? One step forward. Three maybe four steps back. From American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles I'm Kai Ras Monday today. The thirteenth of July good has always to have you along everybody we have come upon. In these strangest of strange days. What might well be the strangest corporate earning season? We are ever going to get over the next couple of weeks. We are going to hear from publicly traded companies how they did. April through June or virus speak in the worst of the crisis so far I. Guess I should say and honestly. It's anybody's guess. There is no crystal while for this. That's Andrea. Is felt an economist at the University of California Los Angeles and a state of heightened uncertainty, usually investors, sort of you know worry for the worst, but here there's sort of hoping for the best in the face it has to be said a lot of evidence, the latest, which came this afternoon from California Governor Gavin Newsom, ordering some of the reopening in this state to close restaurants, hair salons gyms among them a lot of the things that we were worried about like reopening too soon on having to shut down again. As a lot of epidemiologists and economists were telling us was going to happen one more thing to remember about all the earnings reports. We're GONNA. See the next couple of weeks. It doesn't take into account anything about the investment spending you know that has surely declined precipitously so even if we have demand. returning. We haven't been investing in future growth. Future growth is GONNA come. We should be clear about that. It's just a question of when. And of how much directly related to that future growth that is although I will tell you. We didn't plan it this way when we were putting the show together, but directly related to that future growth. Is this country's mask problem? Science tells US wearing a mask is our best defense politics from the white. House has tangled that message badly in. It's become more difficult than it should be to get the. The truth out, so local governments and companies have turned to the magic of marketing and advertising to try to unmixed that message marketplace. Kristen Schwab takes a look at whether the fine art of persuasion can get people to mask up back in May New York, launched a competition for ads persuading people to wear masks. There were more than six hundred entries. The winner is a rift on the famous is heartening. When we show up into mask, push each other show your love for. Has Major. You Californian Oregon have put out similar public service ADS and the Austin Chamber of Commerce recently started sending this message. Mask on each of us is a win for all of us. Edward Russell Professor of advertising at Syracuse University says PSA's like this can work seatbelts don't drink and drive smokey. The bear for forest fires take a bite out of crime. He says those campaigns changed public perception of certain issues, but masks aren't forest fires, which everyone agrees are bad. The battle over masks has become personal so Russell says the messaging has to be personal. The message has to be fast and simple. There has to be something in it for me. He says facts can be convincing showing how the virus spreads from one person to the next, and how masks can help prevent that. That's the focus of Uber's news commercial. The add shows a series of people's masked faces with text underneath saying when you wear a mask, you protect Gin Gin protects. Chelsea Chelsea protects Rafael the final line no mask. No Reid gymnast is a marketing analyst at Forrester certainly brands do see an opportunity to strengthen that bond between them and their customers in between them and their workers, who, in the end have to enforce the rules and take the heat from customers who don't want to follow them. I'm kristen trump for marketplace wall. Street on this Monday in the land that time forgot. Everything was fine good, even actually until California put on the economic breaks. We'll have the details when we do the numbers. I don't know if you saw that. The new. York Times gotTA TANS ON SOME CDC data a couple of weeks ago. That showed among all a lot of other really troubling realities. That black and Latino people are three times more likely to contract covid than their white neighbors are and twice as likely to die. Once they do get sick. One of the many reasons for that is that black and Latino workers are much more likely to have jobs that can't be done from home. Think bus drivers and healthcare attendants grocery clerks as well. Brownsville in Brooklyn in New, York City where eighty percent of residents are black, has been hit especially hard marketplace's jasmine. I went and spent some time there. Father. Edward Mason remembers when he realized covid nineteen was going to be devastating to his community and Brownsville. It was back in mid April in the local public housing complex. A lot of seniors weren't answering their phones. And whether it into the bill, when until you, farmers? They found ten seniors who had passed away alone in their apartment. Predominantly black with a heavy Latino influences well, since then, the virus has killed dozens of his parishioners to lodge sectors employment for community for the men. It's close stores. And for the women, it's home. Health aides in the health field. Both, of which were essential workers who kept working? So you had launched of population. Most of whom live in apartment buildings high density buildings. Having to go to work every day, Andre Palacio forty-one is one of those essential city workers in New York's homeless services met with her at her parents house. Her mom was frying fish for lunch in the kitchen while her dad watch the News Palaccio. Remember going to work with people who were getting sick. She asked for guidance from her employers and got none by late March. She was sick to the body. Aches it just. Took, over my body and I could not even. move it took over my chest and I had to stop the I could not function I had to call my supervisor and tell her I can't wait Palacio describes it cove. Nineteen came into Brownsville like a wildfire soon. Her entire family got it. Her Mom and her dad, who is nearing eighty. Her next door neighbor fell into a coma. Her uncle died from it Palacio says it wasn't just the fact that she got infected. It's the care she received. That makes her upset. I remember going to the the health clinic in this neighborhood and the insole. If you feel sick, why did you come here? You WanNa. Get me sit. You want to get other people sick and we were scolded us an essential worker like myself. Some essential workers say treatment like that made them feel. Disposable Carmen has worked at a hospital in New York for nearly twenty years in close contact with patients. That we not use her last name. She's worried about employer retaliation. We meet on her stoop and Brownsville on a hot summer day. She points to all the people who died here. In the last few months. We lost the people in the supermarket. We lost people that used to sell food outside. They hiring in the day pass away. Because they were letting the people that. She's in her fifties. At the end of March, she asked for some time off since her husband has heart condition that makes him high risk. And she was being exposed every day. Dating approved me to stay home so I asked full-time off the dating uproar. She eventually got sick. She says it was very hard to find testing here when she finally did. She tested positive. She was told to go home. I have played a rope a church. So we pray on the phone, we prayed twice a day. Then an assault, the moon when. Have mercy on us and the whole war. She, eventually recovered from the virus and is back at the hospital now working. Round Villa's colmer now than it was back in March and April neighbors are cleaning up their garage. A big graduation sign hangs on someone's porch. A car bumping music drives by. But many residents here wonder about the second wave of infection and how much New York and this neighborhood can endure. I'm Jasmine garst from marketplace. same day, deliveries become kind of a thing in this pandemic, not so much from Amazon, which has been doing or trying to do it for years, but from companies that leaned in hard once people stop going to actual stores targets a real good example, catches most of the shoppers who picked up from target stores and get it to you. Don't work for target. They are GIG workers at a third party platform, and they are protesting their pay structure this week because of setting a rate per order that they get paid, an algorithm takes into account stuff like how busy a is or maybe how bad street traffic is! Before figuring out how much people are GonNa? Get paid from the workplace culture desk marketplace's Meghan. mcardle Carino has more on how algorithms are increasingly ruling. GIG workers livelihoods. Most users are familiar with pricing where prices vary depending on demand, but that's just part of a complex web of algorithms that affect everything from which jobs a GIG worker is offered to how much they get paid for them. I really compared to the wizard behind the curtain, and was evolved Carlos Ramos has been a rideshare driver in San Diego for three years. Goff is happening back there and you have. have no idea what's going on. He's noticed some patterns like the first logs on, and he's offered a lot of shorter less lucrative rides until he decides to call it a day and head home, and I'll get a request and hundred mile trip and the other direction. This has happened kind and time again. He thinks it's because of lifts algorithm, but he can't be sure because companies keep their software secret. Secret, we have no idea everything that we know about. The Algorithms is based on what workers tell us they experience. Vena Dougal is a professor at UC Hastings. College of the law, she surveyed hundreds of gig workers to tease out how the algorithms work and she's concluded they're designed to keep workers logon for as little as possible. They therefore cannot predict their income on any given day or any given shift. Shift. These systems caused financial uncertainty that puts workers at a disadvantage, says Kate Crawford the CO founder of the AI, now instituted nyu these hours. Nick Systems are essentially increasing the Palais symmetry between workers and employers to quite an extreme degree. She says well. Each platform has its own unique algorithms. They all have a common objective to maximize profits often at the expense of workers I Megan McCarthy Carino for marketplace. Coming up, we started getting more goods in, but that's when our Reagan businesses started slowing down. The perils of misaligned supply and demand but first. Let's do the numbers. Yes kind of a wash the day. Basically, except for one I'll tell you about it down up. Ten basically flat, twenty, six, thousand, eighty-five Nasdaq Down Two hundred twenty six points, two point, one percent, ten, thousand, three, hundred ninety s and p five hundred down about nine tenths percent, thirty, one and fifty five there. Kristen was looking at the value of campaigns to encourage mask-wearing. How many people are wearing them now? Well here is what P research found in June survey about sixty five percent of us. Adults said they mourn masking stores or other businesses, all or most of the time about fifteen percent, said some of the time nine percent said they hardly ever wear a mask. Or a mask you're listening to marketplace. This is marketplace I'm. Kai Ryssdal crude oil the US benchmark West Texas. Intermediate to be precise, closed down a percent and a tenth day, just a hair over forty dollars a barrel. It's a long way from the negative tumble. We saw that day back in late April. If you remember that, but also a long way from where energy companies can make a profit. And so those companies are trying to cut costs, which means that if you run, a business, died the oil and gas, like for instance one that sells sand to drilling companies to use in fracking. You are not in a good way. Three FRAC SAND COMPANIES HAVE FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY SINCE JUNE! Marketplace's and dealer looked into how the faltering sand industry is hitting the small towns sustained by those sand mines. Sand is an important component of fracking producers. Mix It with water to blast oiling gas from shale. San Kept Marcelo Maldonado quite busy for four years at CNN J. Energy in Houston, he says when oil was selling at one hundred and twenty dollars a barrel a few years ago, he was buying sand from Wisconsin and shipping it down to Texas Lee standards to bring it from up north used the rail do a coach to the Wales. They've been mining Sanit Wisconsin for one hundred years, but fracking caused a boom Thomas Pearson at the University of Wisconsin Stout wrote a book about it. Many of the mining companies assured residents that this. This was an industry that was here to stay. Those promises were shown to be both because when oil was trading below thirty dollars, a barrel in two thousand sixteen, many San mines shutdown and to save money. Oil companies started buying sand closer to the wells Marcelo. Maldonado says one town in West Texas Kermit reap the benefits we shall a boom spike in job demands. A lot of people had to get hired to do operate plant. He says that lasted for a couple years, and then covid nineteen hit and oil prices tanked. Michael Weber at the University of Texas at Austin says when energy companies in San Minors proposed setting up in rural towns, local leaders often jump at the prospect of adding jobs and tax revenue, but there are always consequences. I think that's toys. The tension is how do you get the economic development without the volatility volatility is really difficult planners, and for people, the latest FRAC and company to seek chapter eleven. Protection is houston-based high crush, which operates minds in small towns around the country, including in Wisconsin and Minnesota. The company's is cut sixty percent of its workforce since mid-march. I made the Euler for marketplace. A little bit more than a week ago. President trump signed an extension of the paycheck protection program into law and move the application deadline out to August the eighth, because at least in part, the small business administration says there's still something more than one hundred billion dollars left in that program. In also far there have been almost four point. Nine million loans made under the P. Here is how some of those loans have played out in one place I'm Laurie Stewart, and I'm the president and CEO of Sound Community Bank, which is headquartered in Seattle, Washington. We've talked to Laurie Stewart a couple of times since sound community bank became one of the fifty four hundred lenders in the program. You're the end of June. June we had made eight hundred loans, and they totalled over seventy two million dollars. We've seen thousands of jobs jobs like quite a few coaches licensed architects veterinary assistance, racial staff who maintain the pool, estimates service, representatives or doing reception work, and then we also have your lifeguards. That's Stephen Fry gang. He's at Wave Aquatics nonprofit in Redmond Washington that does swim lessons and water polo. That kind of thing Bradley Corey also. Also the founder of an architecture and design firm in Seattle. Call to be nine architects and mark. Donovan is a senior partner at Seattle Veterinary Associates. All three of them got P P. loans through community bank. The bank that Laurie. Stewart runs loans that helped the three of them combined. Keep two hundred and thirty five people on their payrolls here. Stephen Fry gang from wave aquatics again if we had not gotten alone. Alone we would have had to lay people off probably on a permanent basis today we do have everyone on payroll. WHO elected to return meanwhile Bradley over it? Nine architects had some projects postponed. Some disappear altogether. I was concerned. How would support my staff and how I could maintain stability for them? And so the loan We've been paying primarily staff salaries same story from Donovan and his partners at Seattle Veterinary Associates. Not Successful early received a p P. P, loan they would have been extremely challenging. If not impossible for us to keep that workforce intact. According to the Census Bureau's most recent survey of small businesses, seventy five percent of small businesses tried to get P. P loans more than seventy two percent of them got those loans tess Thomas. Though was not in that number. She owns Emma's barbecue in south. Seattle sometimes when you don't have that a one eight plus credit rating. Works against you and it can work doubly against African American people I've not always been so fortunate in the financial area, being able to put those things together and especially so during the covert. She said she looked into getting a p loan. Start the application process with her bank, but looking at her credit score, and all the documentation they were asking for finally I. Just gave up even trying. Those things were were barriers and I. Know that I'm not the only one that has gone through this in African American businesses here in this community, so she's cut hours for her staff. She's only opening her restaurant three days a week now and just trying to hang on to the economy. Most of the virus. The same thing. It ought be remembered that for all the grim virus and attendant economic news here. This is a global crisis in one of the things that's been disrupted. Is Global Trade and that in turn brings us to our latest edition of. What's up? That's what's up world. World Today, the traded commodity of choice, is textiles and apparel, according to the latest data from the Department of Commerce the total value of US, textile and imperil imports in May. This year was down twenty five percent from a year earlier. That is of course the aggregate you break it down by region and country. and. It becomes a lot more tangible textile imports from Honduras down forty two percent from May last year, which is not good for companies that depend on the American Market Eric Jew is the general director of United Textiles of America based in Coloma Honduras Eric thanks coming on. Thank you for having me. So, first things I I. Suppose what has pandemic life been like in that economy down there I mean there lockdown or you out and about? How do you? How do you? Can you do business? It's been challenging to say the least The the government has put a lockdown in place and they've been. Dealing with varying degrees of openness and balance I guess the health of citizens along with the needs of the economy and I. They implemented a broad. Lockdown across the spectrum shut down the entire economy, but then they lifted in piece by piece and allowed essential industries to start operating with the United Textiles. We manufacture raw materials for. Personal protective equipment, which is considered essential industry. can we talk supply chain here for a minute Where do you get your raw materials? and has that been impacted by this whole thing? Yeah we bring in most of our raw materials from Asia and We're in the business and China really dominates the mall yesterday industry in China in the country alone manufacturers more polyester than the rest of the world combined at this time and. Initially when Covid nineteen started happening, China was on lockdown, so we weren't able to get our goods in and the rest of the industry around us was asking us. Hurry up and keep delivering as. The retailers and brands in the United States started panicking. Trying to keep the flow of goods going, and then after China, start recuperating, we started getting more goods in. That's when our regular business started slowing down. As you look around. At your plant Do you have worries that you're? GonNa have to lay people off. Are you going to be able to keep hiring people? I mean is it? Is it a? Is it a day to day? Thing now I suppose it is right. It is very much day to day thing. We actually had a surge where we hired. A few temporary employees. The US government through the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA. They placed a large order for hospital gowns and face masks, which really bowie industry here since then program sunsetted, and they've transferred over to the Defense Logistics Agency the delay part of the Department of Defense, and there's new bids going out, but things are very uncertain I. think that both agencies have been overwhelmed by the newness and the complexity of dealing with so much need a disparate supply chains. This is gonNA sound like a naive observation, but it's kind of wild to think of something like Fema and their decisions reaching a textile factory in Honduras. You know I'm just as a layperson. Yes I mean we're living in a globalised economy? and. Some small decisions by one government. Official can have global. It's very. Interesting world we live in today. Yes, it is. What quickly. What's the? What's the mood? I mean what's the? What's the general vibe on the streets when when you talk to your workers or when you go out and. I don't know. Just try to get some fresh air or something. There's certainly a lot of fear about covid. But here at United, textiles were very thankful that we still have work to do were hoping that some additional business will come out of the the delay. Programs were hoping that it'll keep things going because. People are. Having difficulty feeding their families down here, a lot of the economy still shut down so I. DO EXPECT THAT IF Things don't go well with the larger economy errands. We'll see some more people trying to. Illegally migrated T, nited states again. Thanks a lot. Hair Hairdo is general director of United, textiles of America we got them in or near I, guess his factory. Down in Honduras Eric. Thanks a lot I appreciate. Thank you. This final note on the way out today. It's a quickie because we're a little bit tight. The Treasury Department released numbers on the federal deficit for June this morning we spent eight hundred sixty four billion dollars more than we took in in a month thirty days. The policy case to be made for it of course, is that without all of that deficit spending to deal with virus related economic dislocation, things would be orders of magnitude worse right now. Are, we gotta go, but not without another nugget from that deficit report here you go the federal deficit for the first nine months of the fiscal year two point seven trillion dollars all right.
