Maybe this podcast is influenced me a little bit as well loss loss. Everybody up here. Every single day goes into the office into the laboratory to try to cook up some great stuff you guys. That's why he's here from New York New York. You are listening to extra time driven by continental from my spare bedroom in Brooklyn Andrew. We be with my partners in soccer. Mattdoyle Kaelin car. David Goss. Who is under Sal Legend? Coming up on the show for some storytime the youngest player at the Ninety World Cup GonNa help us with the greatest team of all time bracket so to the New York City. Flax I have more than one bedroom internally for my incoming child day. It's just do whatever I want and here. It's only podcasting room for the time being. How do we directly? I assume what we say. The kid's name was Dempsey Obafemi whatever we had already decided on I think on the job adduce would have to be the one name the child I believe child. Yeah yeah we're thinking about naming him after a guy named oems Berg why Berg boom that's the MLS connection child isn't his name is not our. Her name is not decided to him. Out is not decided by a twitter poll. I'm going to be very disappointed. I would assume it has to be a former Miami fusion player. That's my assumption looking. I'm looking forward to the best. Eleven names collar. That's actually you know what that's a good idea that was written strictly for one person coming workshop. That's your by the way it did Leo Colin Point for Miami Fusion or was he. He didn't know. Miami's we're thinking about Leo to after I feel messy after Leo Cohen. That's the way my brain works. All right guys. Let's give people little hint of what's coming here before we jump into it because there is some news about return to play the Athletic Sam stace goal in Washington. Post even Goffman all over this one and we'll kind of run down what's going on. Maybe get quick opinion. Still we know about as much as all of you do at home still uncertain times still. Tvd's still it seems like clans in the we'll see what happens mode but things are moving ahead we're going to have the oil drink recommendation of the day. Did you do your research? Toil you have one for us. It doesn't need to do research. He lives the research. What are you drinking right now? Yeah that's probably. I'm drinking water right now but I do have a drink of the day okay. We'll get to that one. Of course this is Heineken. Rivalry week at EMMA SOCCER DOT COM remix on Friday four PM Youtube and facebook Seattle Portland otherwise known as the number two rivalry in major league soccer right now just messing with the out there. I did it number two but it is Dave and Kaelin and some fans From Seattle and Portland so check that one out. Espn foxsports all these different partners. The most where you watch games before. They're running old rivalry matches Dot Com for all those listings I've enjoyed those. I spent last night about three hours tune into those and my wife was like why and I was like soccer. I miss it. And she's like okay fine and just turned away and read a book so Let's get into a return to play. Here's what say school in Gotha reporting. Mls Molasses considering having all twenty six teams plan Orlando Confident. Bring stace go rumors Points to sunset midseason form right right. I'd forgotten all about that and I'm reminded a reportedly mainly the Disney Weiguo Sports Complex. Which if you're an MLS FAN. You're well familiar with from preseason passed and the All Star game last year the Skills Competition Yada Yada these would be competitive closed-door matches teams would travel out there in June quarantined. Basically kind of be like a bubble situation. I you start with individual training and go small groups and you go full training sessions and then the game start. You'd have some sort of tournament. Format does this peak your interest. Are you guys thinking? Oh Yeah Gimme that. I'll take that I need this. Live soccer in my life like what? What would be interesting to you? In this scenario what would kind of get your brain moving. What would you feel good about? Obviously the key here is health and molasses and every involved will have to make sure those is dotted and the t's or crossed But I don't think we should speculate about any of that. I think it's the competitive side. Anybody have thoughts or is it just so ephemeral that you're like I can't imagine until I see it It's kind of where I am. I mean it's obviously going to be different kind of season no matter what everyone decides so that means a tournament at Disneyworld this point as long as it is safe as possible. Which obviously that's going to be the number one priority been late. Yeah Alright Tournament Disneyworld summer. Let's let's do it you know and I'm sure the players are itching to get out there as well but we're we're talking you know month and a half away and a lot of things can change. A lot of things have changed in the past month and a half so for now just Kinda like legit get through the next day the next hour of this podcast. Big It up from there. Yeah mixture cocktail drinking. Whatever happens on the other side is still to be determined in some ways. I mean I think it's interesting because we've already seen the gap in training certain teams depending on what market. They're in already backed when individual work on the field and you talk the players here from players and they're saying hey you know maybe I thought I could stay fit on my own isolation but that just wasn't the case you have different levels of fitness coming in different levels of You know like sharpness. Of course I also I. I wonder what said Joseph Martinez is doing right now to rehab and how that works and how it would work but you're talking about Gargantuan effort to get a group of hundreds of people in a safe environment in Orlando to play this tournament. I know that I would tune in. I know that I would enjoy it if it happened. But I'm Kinda like you doyle in that in my personal life and in my professional life right now I can't see past about right here. Might come on Youtube my hands directly in front of my face like I just can't add in front of the microphone. He probably heard that. That's a good point. We keep a very professional. When it comes to these at home recordings so I don't know what do you guys think? Kaylin Dave any thoughts. We'll just see what happens. Yeah Kaelin W- If someone proposed to you when you were playing what would what have been your thoughts. Yeah I mean well look I know the guys will want to get back out there playing. And that's everyone does. The big challenge has been the part of the challenge has been that the you know. We spend two countries and across like the distance has been so difficult And that that was a challenge. Always with me was just the amount of travel that you'd have to incur as as a player and how that affected the game. Now it's everyone's in you know we already had all these different sets of circumstances whether you're playing in different environments or cultures or regions or languages or whatever and now it's like that that deals differences have been magnified based on. You know the different circumstances that people are going through right now and where they are in the world so the idea makes a lot of sense is to try and Get all everybody into one place and so you then are in a similar circumstance where you can try and just I guess I had former coaches of mine used to always say like focus on what you can control. And there's a lot out of our control right now so. I think the idea of trying to create an environment where you can control as much as possible who gets in out namely really nobody in just really corentin everybody together gives us a chance and I am hopeful about that so I think as long as my main thing is as long as we're going about it in a safe way that Ha- that looks at it for the health of the players the health of the the people that are GonNa be involved all the people that will be involved in in this sort of comeback to play That's GOT TO BE PRIORITY NUMBER ONE. So that's That's the most important thing to keep in mind and But Yeah I would love to see it if if if we can get there but yet it's like you guys are saying every two days. I see something on twitter whether it's with the Bundesliga and we're waiting to figure out how that's all going to go at it. You have to put one foot in front of the other. But it's a big idea for sure. It's a big idea and I think That's what it would take right now. It seems like just like everybody else will keep our nose down to see what comes out. What's the information was the official stands for major league soccer and go day by day? That's all we can really do at this point in the meantime we're digging of course having we do. We do know that doyle stayed match fit and wires. I lost fitness and doyle stayed chance weekend to get oil. I did break both of my feet for months ago. So we're probably not going to get out on the field. Is this the time to share that story? We keep that around working. I JUST WANNA say my my I was talking to my brother-in-law speaking of fitness and he was like man very fit guy works every day like gym rat and he was like. I've gained nine pounds. You certainly don't look it and he's like how are you doing and I was like well. I haven't. I'm exactly the same way that I was before. Which maybe tells you a lot about my activity level war kind of a shameful thing so like I feel like I have to lose weight just to prove that I have some semblance of self disciplined might not because I watch my girlfriend workout once a day so not working out and not being around to watching someone do it once a day. So it's it's it's pushing the creepy little bit creepy to the the way you phrase. That's good well. I mean the the other people on this zoom just hanging out yelling at each other to push harder and maybe I'll use my spare bedroom for some workouts. Meanwhile David Down his head and his feet touch both walls. He's been okay. That's enough for us. So let's get to Chris Anderson and get his memories bar. We've really enjoyed getting some perspective on the past but we can also get some on the president with Chris. Henderson the vice president of soccer or the Seattle sounders. He is much more than that though. Of course he was the youngest player at the ninety world. Cup played for a number of great teams in this league over the years. We've talked about him on this show through the Mount Rushmore series to the greatest teams of all time Bris. Welcome to the show beautiful beautiful chandelier. I just have to start saying thank you. That's My wife chose that so It's kind of a spot where I don't get disturbed from my kids but it's great to be with you guys. I enjoy your show to watch and the Banter back and forth entertaining monkey for you to have that SPA. I'm still looking for one of those. If somebody breaks in behind me you'll see the door open. It'll be my son. Cameron was just get started. Here we WANNA use your perspective both on the teams you've been on but the teams that you've built here competed against to help us. Better make decisions in extra-time greatest team of all time bracket we're trying to narrow it all down to the greatest team of all time it's been difficult has been heart wrenching at times. I still feel bad about that. Fire Red Bull's decision But let's start before that way before. Let's go back to pre nineteen ninety. You're the youngest player on that. First World Cup for the US. Tell us the story about how you got involved. What it meant that time what the team was like. Just take us down memory lane round. It feels like another lifetime ago for sure as a longtime back but You know it was a it was a time where US getting into. The world. Cup was such a big deal after forty years of being out and you know that group layers mostly college college players or just out of college I would say we were a bit naive going into You know to play Italy Austria Slovakia and really. We did at that time. There was no video really to watch. We're going into the World Cup like all right. Let's play our game and let's see what they come with. It is really limited in the amount of preparation you could do leading into the World Cup and You know just being there with that group of guys and being the youngest player and walking out in Olympic Stadium when we played against Italy and seeing all the guys that I had posters on the wall in my my dorm. Ucla Donate in the alley that that team was amazing. And you know I think knowing jet we had a chance to host the ninety four World Cup it was really important that group qualified and and it wasn't like in ninety four. We just were the host team you get in the World Cup And I think the growth from that ninety team to ninety four was was monumental like that that group of players in training every day together in residency was pretty amazing So great memories you know a look at the highlights of ninety being youngest and then missing out You know in the last minute on the next two World Cup team. So it's Kinda highs and lows with national. Who was the guy in that group for the Americans for on that squad that you were impressed by training? Who was the Best Player? Who STOOD OUT Tab Ramos said them the the most technique skill explosiveness I remember we were in Florence Training at a military base because of the Gulf War and protection around the team. I remember like thinking. Okay I got TAB. He's dribbling at me and I think I'm going to channel him and just give him this gap in the next step in and tackle and before I knew it he had loaned by me and couldn't like is accelerating was incredible off off A stop start And and the way he can control the ball and then there was Peter. Vermes who I always close with teams his leadership You know when all was coming through there So when he saw many players Desmond Armstrong was a good leader And then Gansler was my coach. For the eighty nine Youth World Cup where we'd lost in the In the semifinals to Nigeria an overage Nigeria So I had experience with that coaching staff. Ralph Peres Gansler so It was a great experience. Great members Bob are one of the classic interviews here and extra time down. You will always be our soccer GRANDPA. You said naive and I've heard a lot of guys on that team. Say That did you have a feel for how important it was. Did you have a feel for sort of the perspective and the the historical nature of it? And how did that manifest itself something about to myself in Nineteen College? I may not have had that and it may have been hard to have that given that the US just hadn't been there in so long. Yeah I think there's something at that age where you're coming through where you're thinking you're invincible. And you think you can do anything and you know when I when I got into games unlike. GimMe the ball. I WANNA take players on and dribble and get crosses in I think It's a strength sometimes when you don't know what you don't know and Obviously looking back yet. You make decisions and you don't know until years later when you look back whether they ended up being good or bad decisions and So I think I had a little bit of that. Maybe cocky nature and in confidence and Like I said at that point. It isn't like today. You can watch any game anywhere in the world At that time it was really hard to to to see games on a consistent basis and look at the top players around world. We kinda just saw what we have in the United States. What did YOU When did you? When did you like the moment in the game? The moment warm ups the moment beforehand and you had the posters on the dorm room. When did you know like oh? These guys are a different level? Well the first game when we walked out against Czechoslovakia when I looked over at scrubby and their whole team I mean just the physical nature. Their whole team was giant and they were thick and strong. And then I looked at our team and now like we look thin. Look like we look like yes and I saw them looking over at US almost like the Rocky IV on drag on where they they look over and they're like all this is GonNa be easy today and you know. Obviously we had that really difficult start. We haven't really seen any video on them. We didn't have any scouting reports just a completely different world. I WANNA talk about. Mls with you. But before I do this is always a topic with guys that have been in the national team because there are like you said the highs and the lows there the moments like ninety that you'll remember forever and also the moments you remember like ninety four ninety eight how do you think missing those teams change your mindset or the trajectory of your career when you think back on those moments now with all this time to reflect what jumps out to you. Yeah like I said you look back at some moments choices you made along the way. I chose in nineteen ninety four January not to sign what you soccer all the players signed. Who were staying in? Mission Viejo. It signed contracts with a soccer To to to step into major league soccer after the World Cup which was at that time was supposed to start ninety five instead of ninety-six So that's a choice I made and You know what did it hurt me or not? Make the team who knows But you know leading up to that I led the team in minutes ninety three and then You Know I. I think I was part of ten of thirteen games leading up to ninety four and then one week before you know borer calls in office says a Chris I make my list in your name's not on it was like. Oh how do we get it on it? And you know those those moments. I think you know I had to reinvent. Myself or to Germany in Effigy Frankfort and start over. And I think those everything through as a player. really Set me up for my my career now and it's almost like this is the career was meant to have What I'm doing now posts play And all those preparations being art of teams new buildouts new ownership new facilities. All the things I learned along the way have have helped me tremendously one of those moments. Maybe when we realized that people we interview are better than US says seventy nine caps but that was the preamble to his career. Now does the podcast either. If we were given cabs for the podcast though five hundred rolex I wish I wish dream about those days but of course you did end up a major league soccer ninety six until two thousand six and it started with the rapids and we talked about that. Run with the ninety seven team. We've talked about the two thousand wizards and of course we talked to two thousand one fusion with practice and some others are. I think Brian Dunne up to back to the rapids Mark John. He's been underrated guy. I just want to try to get from you a little bit of take care and I want to know what the best team you played on is because you are on a lot of good teams championship. Winning teams teams. That got the finals for you in your career. What's the best team you were on? Why on that's a good question It's between the fusion in two thousand one and the wizards in two thousand The wizards team was a team. That had something to prove it was a Lotta castoffs who are on that team. Who had something to prove Tony? Meola carries a bag and Peter. Vermes Bunbury at Nicholas Molnar. Who came over who played with me before in Germany and Mo. Johnston and Matthew was a tough T- tough tough team to be Chris Klein You know it was really good team and I think Gansler had something to prove as well in the in the way. The team played We ended up beating out for order. Shield by I think it was goal. Difference this Kaga Fire. Who had a fantastic team and we ended up facing them and MLS Cup final two and they just pounded our goal. Tony Played Amazing Meek. Lowes scored like he did every other game and You know Preki was was fantastic. That sees it too. He played such a good role within the group and the team But the Miami team in a one The Supporters Shield winning team played with so much flair and when we had teams coming down to Miami. We knew that the last twenty minutes in the humidity. We're GONNA destroy. We would keep the ball. A native Chicagoan was amazing. His first year Cerna top was like a bold run over people he just so powerful And then Preki inaudible traded away from that Casey team in two thousand and went to Miami And we actually both scored against them in the conference finals Good so that was satisfying. How did you celebrate the Iran over and I think I jumped on Jay heaps or Preki in Iran the to the stands Yeah it was a good feeling and you know Pablo Mastroeni was Deng Cow. Beckerman was just a kid Mickey was in goal right. Nikki yet. Nikki was in goal. Don't forget so many carson so many someone salty doom Rooney So you know that team was a you know and and raise our coach. He just he just said guys. Let's have fun let's play. He knew the talent on the team and he knew the right buttons to push And it was just. It was just a blast that I think we lost. Maybe five games a whole year and it was a confidence in the team. In the way we played I I would say. There's an edge to that team and obviously the next year we beat Casey A couple times But I would say that one. You should teams best team. I play Hulkah- oh one Preki by the way was on this show and he said he loved the team. You love the flare. He didn't love the defensive side for two thousand but I think what was his quote. Dave I wish I wish people were a little bit more. Was it committed as a matter? It's practice matter. Brian done on line and Brian was like yeah. We had hooters cards if I remember like he said it was pretty wild down there. So is your choice. Yeah the but ninety eight galaxy team for TUCK TALKING ALL TIME. Teams at team scored goals with these. I mean they were stacked so you know. I do remember playing against that team. They destroyed our Colorado team But that that that team was loaded to Okinawa me through. Sorry before we do this we so we've been talking a lot about the different. What are the different areas of? Mls and how you break them up and you know in ninety six there was such an infusion of talent off the bat of this work. Let's get big stars. Then it kind of seemed to have dwindled a little in the early two thousands and then you have the Beckham error and all that stuff did it feel like from playing in the League at the League better every single year or was there a drop then gain again in the middle of that first ten fifteen years and you know I think it was I don't think there was like a steady game. I think there were some some years. That were Hold on my man. You got the shirt. That's family abuse kindergarten. He's I know how it goes. Kids need that attention. They got nobody else to go to right now. Chris so you got to be the playmate and the in the parent. I'm in those those days too so I think the growth of the League is similar to the growth of player. It's never like this. There's times where you go backwards to go forward and you go sideways and I think there was some fantastic teams in the late nineties and there was a lot less teams in the league so the talent pool. I mean you look at most. Us national team players are in teams. And I think it's really balanced and You know now there's a lot more teams and you have to use more players and there's more foreign players coming all the time But I think that You know the talent on some of those early teams some of the early DC united teams Chicago Fire You know The galaxy early teams. I mean I think the ninety eight team had challenged. Jerry played in the World Cup. Cobi Jones Frazier Vani Athens. Ezra Art Reese Cashman. I mean guys who were who were Players who played it is International players and a balance of guys. Who were up and coming young star so There was a period. Maybe I I say it's may be pre Internet in homeware. You know that there was some years where we didn't know what was going to happen with the League and there was some unstable a- periods where three owners were owning most of the League So you know. Teams were getting a contracted so that that was a period of uncertainty. But I still think there were some if you took three or four of the top teams. They could compete with any of the teams today. So we have to make these decisions and they're tough ones. What advice would you give? Yeah I mean maybe depending we'll see who comes out on top as as we get the right team all the matters that final answer in so many ways or at least. That's what I'm telling myself like when you go back and look because here are some of the Games that were we're GONNA have to figure out here today so matchup like two thousand thirteen. Sporting Kansas City two thousand five New England Revolution or Two Thousand Three San Jose 2011. La Galaxy if you're doing this exercise on your own and you were pitting these teams together. How would you think about it? What advice would you have for us? What things should we value? What things should we sort of? Push away in Sochi. That's secondary are you rings. Culture is it all about the trophies only or is it style of play time like. How would you go about this? Yeah you know what I would look through Each team and find out like if there's a team that Landon Donovan was on you know He. He made up for several players on on a team just in his ability. His winning mentality is Ability to change a game at any moment so I think looking at the top players in each of those teams and the influence that they had on results similar to Chicago Fire TV cubic and Novak The ability for them to dictate the game and the way it was going to be played and when they wanted to switch it on whom the team optical or two because of the difference. They made moment So I I would look at those things and it's a little bit like You know for me like scouting players. Like when you're trying to compare lease you know it's very difficult comparing teens as it is comparing leaks. How do you compare the Irit officiate to the you know to the Premier Division in Argentina? Like you know being able to predict those things is difficult so I think if you can get some of those navy measurements and comparisons on players. Individual players could help. Who Do you think we should end up with? What is the right answer to this question at the end of this bracket who is the greatest team history because you've either built teams that compete against the ones in the modern era? Here you've played great ones before that well hang on. He built some that are in this. Yeah that's what I'm saying. He understood. I'm just saying I don't know for sure because today for sure in the conversation to be that fourteen. Sounders team Two thousand fourteen. When Oba Clint Evans Pineda Reorient Lonzo? Marshall I mean you go through that team on this this players but the ninety nine united team with Pope and Agoos and Ed Cherry Merano me. That was a that was an all star team It was You know you knew when you were going to our that it was. It was going to be your toughest game the year Bruce Arena. You know finds a way to get all this so That Galaxy Ninety eight team would be in the conversation for sure The fusion team Supporters Field Winter. No one but you know we didn't get past San Jose to get to 'em Alaska. It's you guys John. Yeah I've been having trouble when I'm putting my votes in on the twitter poll but to click this one but no no no. I'M GONNA GO THE OTHER ONE. I just can't. I can't quite wrap my head around some of the concepts Chris. I'll say you guys did a good job of making a lot harder because we got a lot of love for the two thousand Chicago team as the Best Chicago Team. Think they would have been a high seed except you guys beat them. Mls Cup finals. So thank you for making that. Yeah yeah now I do have a story. We played a ninety eight. We play the galaxy in the Rose Bowl in. You know they were far superior team to our Colorado team at the time And I'm sure they beat us by a couple of goals. Kobe was on fire. That you're preparing for a World Cup. Ninety eight and it was the first game. After the twenty two man roster was named for France Ninety eight Sampson named the roster and I was left out of the roster disappointed. But you know the league goes on so. I'm playing the game and there was a young player for the galaxy. I'm not gonNA name who it is but he was young player who I thought. Hey this guy's this guy's pretty good. I WanNa go go against him and see what he has because I liked him as player. Who's plan White Midfield I got got on the field started playing and from like the first five minutes he was talking smack like like it was like a NBA game. Like he's like a man you're a total has been you've just got cut from the World Cup team. Why can't win on? Yeah yeah and I was like the WHO is this guy and He he actually helped me for the next three or four years in the comments. That were made that game In they destroyed us that day and I was. I was getting out of my mind like I was going to do something. Stupid at know during the game Just out of frustration. I think but he drove me because I thought about okay. I'm twenty seven years old and has been and then it drove me you know that to supporters shield. Mls led the team in scoring in one of those years so it was great motivation. Back in the national team with Bruce in some of the qualifying for two so I think that young player at the time for talking smack for ninety minutes. You better believe Chris that we're going to be going through those boxes for and figure if you that's not what this show is all about your dead before we get what you're doing now. There's one name I know I've done so much research over the past two months more than I've ever done before in the history of him last because that's what we have right now. You don't have the present the urgency of the right now to distract you and you have some some good background with this guy. I just want to know more about him as a player. Because I can't find the highlights of Mark Chung anywhere. I cannot find any way for me as a person who was not watching the time to educate myself about Mark Chunks. So give me like the one two minute spiel mark. Chun's that everybody out. There knows the name a knows we was as a player. He four best elevens. Yeah mark at first. He's if he besides the soccer. He's a fantastic I We were roommates on the road. He he you know. Now the has his own business in the in the Jamaican beef patties and successful businessman. He was always talking about stocks. We're watching the stock market all the time when we're together and he had a sweet left-foot he he had a cut move that that he would use super allusive on the dribble. He had a great mind for the game reading the game. He show up on spots where he should be in the. He scored assisted Yeah I love playing with him. He was part of that group. In Mission Viejo leading up to ninety four We try and doubled as every day. He Sorber Room together For that for that period then Yeah he was great on the early. Kansas City teams I had a chance to play with him. Colorado he was one of the top Left sided players left-footed players. I think You know of that whole decade Through the ninety s and early two thousands and he was consistent. It was a guy that you can rely on. If you're going to have a team that was going to attack and go APP teams and And having a smart player. Who's like a coach on the field You WanNa Mark Chung of your group. Who's your best roommate of all time? I would say Robin Frazier I loved ruin of RAV. He's got a great soccer mind. He's so chill We had great conversations. He really helped through some tough periods and I would say he's the top But I had some some good ones. Chung was fantastic. I roomed with practice on two different teams. I get remember roommates. Tony Meola a room with him. Irvine's you got the legends coming roaming remain with goalkeeper Hash. Their gloves staying there hanging everywhere. But Yeah I had some good remains along the way that's good. I'll just say this. The research has been done. Nineteen Ninety eight galaxy verse rapids. I know what's going on. I guess it would be. That's all that's why he's near. Yeah I was surprised. But he had he had a great career Let's finish up here with you. Chris thank you so much for hanging out with us here and helping give a little perspective the decisions we're going to have to make after this. I'm just curious how your job has change and how your perspective has changed in the middle of this sort of unprecedented event. You know you're out scouting. You mentioned Argentina versus busy versus you. Know use ICU. Posted all those cryptic. Sometimes I drop in the dams and try to guess What's changed right now with what you do. How the organization is preparing and building and thinking about the first team and beyond. Yeah I mean it's changed in the fact that in you know when I came on in two thousand eight. It was all about one team. You know our first team. Obviously now we have the comb defiance and we have our academy system It's just The club is much bigger than when I started and You know the majority of my work is sense. Oh aid has been the build out of the team bringing the players and Trying to convince them to come to Seattle and molasses You know as as a sporting director I'm always looking at the short medium and long term as opposed to the coaches are focused on on the short term for the most part You know I still am working on a you know. Have the the Scouting Network Or Komo player acquisitions. I'll consultant advise with GARTH AND BRIAN. Overall philosophy and methodology of the club and then You know I think you know just showing leadership in where the club is going in the pathway for young players to come through our club because MLS teams need to have players coming through their own system. And that's going to be really important for us in the future To be able to bring layers through our system and have a pathway straight up to the first team and I think that connection now you know we have Danny Levens young players who are coming into our first team training every day and that is a big step and it's it's You now from from being a young player in my past history. I know how valuable that that is. And how much you can grow in those early years So you know right now through this period. It's watching players watching video being ready Going through player profiles to make sure we have depth in every position of targets. Were looking at and then figuring out you know one. When can we do it? Are we able to bring players into the US And Win will that happen? And so there's a lot of things that go into it and then then the salary cap is another issue being able to find players who can fit into what we have available expense. I always say this is my last question that I always have one more. And that is the case this time and I've got like seventeen and I mean that's the problem with these is one of the most interesting and one of the nicest WanNa know. What signing your when you think about all these signings back to two thousand one. What's the one that whether it was kind of an under the radar one? You found this guy or a deal. That got complicated. You didn't know it was going to happen but it did get done. He made a huge impact. What's the one that you kind of highlight and you go? We nailed yes that one the one they were just like Bingo. We got that. I'm proud of that. It's my favorite. Maybe it's obscure one. I don't know you define it how you want. Chris. That's hard I I would say over me. Morton's was a big change for us and that was that was a hard signing I think I flew to Spain over a two month period. Three two times And to be able to get that over the finish line He was fantastic for the club. Super Talented You Know Victor Rodriguez is another one who you know. We got him on a free and to get a player that caliber DP level caliber player on a free Was was great for the club. Because you know the Times you can do that it. It just spreads the money out. It helps a team but He was one of those guys who was playing in a low league team They were always defending against the big clubs and and it wasn't really fitting for the way he played. I thought if we could take that guy and put him on a good team that keeps all I think this could be really good And his character was so I think he was his steel for us There's other guys to just being able during that two year period. Pick up Eddie Johnson. Who was kind of looking is Kinda lost? Look into you. Know for something in way to prove himself Results fell on our lap through just relationships. Most of these signings and bringing players in our relationships and it's about building trust with people and you're hoping they're going to pick up the phone and call you guys. I in you know and every club has their own relationships. Were all pretty much doing the same things but I think we just want to try and be consistent and bringing in certain players who will fit into the way we want. Well that's Way like watching supplies Beth. That's appreciate everyone. You just name appreciated done. Victor Rodriguez worked out pretty well for. You're gonNA find as well Chris Anderson. The vice president of soccer is the sporting director as well as Seattle sounders and of course had an amazing career himself on the the rapids the wizards the fusion the rapids again the crew and then the Red Bulls as well we We could have done this forever. We're buying new beers when we come to Seattle. I'm hopefully that is very very insurace. Thank you for your time man. It's been a pleasure to chat great talking to you. Guys stay healthy. Aren't they? Said thanks to Chris Henderson for joining us. That was an absolute pleasure. One of the best guys in this league has an interesting career. Both on and off the field help us get a little perspective here as we dig into the discovery rights region and the Seattle region of the extra time. Greatest team of all time bracket We made a decision last time. I'm you know I feel pretty good about ninety percent of them still a little bit if you on that ninety eight fire versus a twenty eighteen rebels. I think I made the right decision but when Henderson talks about you know we was Kubik and Novak has gained complete game changers. I get a little bit nervous but we'll stick with it. You voted twenty four hours. Thank you to everybody. Who did it on twitter? Remember will keep pushing those out so keep an either add extra time give a follows you know when the show comes out but also to make sure you have your voices heard the rules in case you don't know I'm very simple. Four votes we have four devote. Has the fan vote has won. So either you'll be a tiebreaker. If you vote in those twitter polls or I'll be put on the spot or Dave or Kaelin or oil. I hope not me again West bend the number one seed maybe overall is two thousand nineteen. Elliot see only sixty five percent of the vote. Somebody's trolling us here for the play. In which Charlie Charlie's by our Charlie in Charlie's Movement Twenty Four New England or Twenty Fifteen Orlando got thirty five percent. Think we just rubberstamp this. I don't think we discussed this one. Everybody knows how much we talked about. Twenty invalid I'm Bob and everything they'd accomplish last year setting that point record your through two hundred ninety see all good there gears where it gets interesting because this was separated by point two percent the four seed twenty thirteen Sporting Kansas City versus twenty. Two thousand five. I should say New England revolution the Rams and the fan vote. They won the vote. Fifty point one percent of forty nine point nine for twenty thirteen Sporting Kansas City. That two thousand and five REVS team. That's twelve men that shall read. That's Roulston that's reese on and on and on twenty in Kansas City Was a team that. S. be in that frigid final and you have Beasley Ends Uzi and damned wire and Benny Nielsen and a really in Kalin etcetera etcetera first impressions. Did the fans get this right? Just barely is it that. Oh Five. New England team of course one of the teams that lost him last Cup or is it the cup winning sporting KC team. Where do you stand? Anybody gotTA take. I'll take New England team. I mean I played against both those teams so The early days when I came in I would go against those revolution teams and they were fantastic And I think when you look at that kind of quality overall because like that team also had Michael Parkhurst In the Young Michael. Parkinson the back. It had jay heaps. Matt Reese. I mean. That team was just flipping through Dempsey. Coming in I do that team. Was it's funny because they You know I think there are remembered more closer to like the buffalo bills in a way. 'cause they they didn't end up winning but that consistency it. It was a team of winners. When you look at all those guys who who played at that level I think they just kind of had bad luck and came up against Houston team. That was just a notch. A Notch better But but I think when you look at those. Those sporting teams excellent excellent group. But I'm not even sure that twenty thirteen team was the best sporting team of that era. I think they they were resilient hung around and I think the emergence of Dom Dwyer really pushed them over the top at times but Yeah I don't know some of those earlier sporting teams I found with Kai and CJ. I think we're in a in a different way so if I were to pick between the two. It's it's close. I think the the fans got right as far as how close it is but I think that that I would go with the reps team over over. Sporting remember sporting team earlier cells in that team. He was very good that year but is he better than showery. No and you have to think of me. Kaikai was gone. I believe mid season. That year was transferred. I think Roger left in that summer too so you have two huge parts of what made this team so special not there. What are we doing here? We said twenty thirteen sporting KC. We didn't save the team that played in the postseason. Like talking about a group where is in and downs at his peak comedian. Really but you can't because dom wasn't as peak when Kyle was there so those are two almost in my mind you. Those aren't the same team. Those are different parts of that team asked we make up these rules every time. I making them up right now. I'm really are you. Are you going to sporting? Kc Dave is that what you're saying right now. No Irish point devil's advocate a little bit. We talked about this before the show. We were talking about errors. And where teams satin. While two thousand and five probably wasn't the peak of major league soccer. I came into this league watching that revs team and the Dynamo teams that followed and so I have a lot of respect for what they did the way those seams were built. I think guys mentioned with Parker and all of this. The depth at those revs teams had on top of the top talent. And I think when you talk about spines you're talking about some of the best in major league soccer from Taylor all the way through to Matt so I I appreciate those ramps teams. I think they could play a few different ways even though maybe they're not known for that. And when you look at the ability to grind out results in big games and big moments you know. Playoff Games cut obviously not cup finals. But those moments I trust this rep steam on the flip side for KC. I think Kaylin just dunk it on them because he beat them when he played in the day. So I think there's a fair he'd be He'd be different team. Though you gotTa admit the twenty thirteen. Kansas City team was very different from the twenty eleven and twelve team. Because of and Benny Right they felt at that point. Twenty thirteen like Sporting Kansas City was never gonNA to get over that Hump and beat Houston but then late in the season. Both Tom and Benny emerge and suddenly at that time. You have one of the best number ten in the league and you have one of the best number nine in the league and then you add that on top of what was the best defense in the league and even without Roger. That midfield was really good You know we had a couple of overlapping fullbacks. I think it's really close. I think the fans were absolutely right. That this is almost a coin flip and you can't knock what the res- accomplished from. I mean the whole thing from two thousand to two thousand seven but really that five six seven group. It still shocks me. They didn't win more trophies but that like that. Sporting Kansas City team was legit. And I think if you had to put that Sporting Kansas City team up against that res- team. There's no way that revs back mind handles the press. There's just no way spoiling has the city's getting three or four goals just off of forcing mistakes out of that revs back line And I know that parkers was awesome. Parks was a rookie in two thousand. Five you know the other guys on that team that were okay on that back mind but if you look at it about every John Right now yes sorry. Talk veteran avery on exactly. Roca veteran a one zero World Cup appearance. I just think that I just think that stylistically sporting team would would be a lot. It would be too much for for that reps and go to doyle saying what sporting KC did mls because they were the first diagnosis and do that would be times five going back to two thousand five in what the Rams had faced and what the League was at that time. Yeah but let's go back to the depth argument like if this were playing a game here we haven't even said the name's Andy Dorman learn wet We haven't said we kind of Smith but we did not say Pat Noonan. I mean my vote's going to go for the Rams I think if these two teams played I think the Rabs win and maybe that's just me maybe that's me trying to push away from what everybody says is my Sporting Kansas City by but I think this team I think they can deal with it. I think that they have like the pieces further record. I hate both of these teams. It sounds like I only dislike this sporting team but those New England teams. That's sure when Chicago everybody. I mean everybody hated the roads back then. So it's it it was and it was partly because they were so good. It was out of respect. Yeah the reason. We haven't said Jeff Lorenzo because he played all of one minute that year. We so no. We be switched the rule so he gets Loretta wits. Two thousand nine Salamat team and Dom Cam trying to talk about a team. We're playing dumb. Never even played together. Like dumb was out in Orlando is not pick one game that year and that lineup plays in this. It is that year which we be too. That's SEC teams credit. They were they were really jibbidy players and still win. Mls Cup no no no. It's it's different than true. My my vote went to the roads though. So we've already made this decision. Kaelin was on the website. Yeah the fans by point. Two percent were on the website and so the revs. They're moving on the spacey. I was just making argument. Is this is a hard one to hear. And and to the next match-up Here's three seed. Two Thousand Eight Columbus crew against the. You're never going to be allowed to go back home. But I know two thousand two while probably never will be able to go back from two thousand galaxy. Forty-seven percent so the fans have voted. They say that awake Columbus crew team by the way both these teams coached by Schmidt the legend Oa Columbus Crew Henderson. Kinda run you through that roster you talking about Obviously an MVP and GPS. Marshall Hey do up and down that roster they had quality in two thousand galaxy was a great team as well led by Carlos. Res I'm going to go to you on this one deal start out. Do you agree. Do you think that? Oh eight crew team based on seating but based on everything they accomplished and were is better than Otsu galaxy team. The team that made history there and one the first cup. Yeah I do I. I think the fans were right to to make it close but if you if you look back at that. Oh to galaxy team They were just blood and guts on the back line and then Carlos Ruiz and hope to win by a goal in res was amazing that year keep the share of goals that he had both in the regular season and the playoffs and in the Open Cup because that galaxy team almost won the travel so they were incredible and they had this one very specific way to beat you and they did it again and again and again including on the road in MLS Cup. They played that cop at Foxboro in front of sixty two thousand reps fans and they won one nil Carlos Res Goal. But it was not I. Did I think the current just better? I just had more ways to do it. And even though they didn't have anything close to Carlos restyle assassin in the box. They I mean eddie gaven and Robbie Rogers on the wings. They had guys like know Brad Evans in Central Midfield Chad Marshall who was incredible onset pieces at that point he was maybe the best. Ariel threat I've ever seen in. Mls and this is before he got a couple of concussions. I just think that they just they had more firepower. And the center of it all was peaks Golo Golota I give a slight advantage. Two thousand eight crew and rest in peace. I wish he was here to talk for us too. Chris Henderson a little bit about it before we got on with him. Because Chris has worked with Gigi so long and he said it was tough when you look at it. You mentioned that Open Cup like the galaxy. Were a goal away the first ever treble on the flipside. Columbus did a double as well in two thousand eight and it's actually Columbus. Oh to who beat the galaxy at Open Cup final? I love this crew team and I think when you look at Ziggys teams and what they did. It was a lot of guys who were in the right roles. Not THAT EDDIE. Gaven is our world class player best. Mls player but he had the exact role he needed to be successful. And you had peak Chad Marshall and you have Brian Carroll battling in midfield and you had GB asked who is in the exact right role he needed to pull the strings create chances in all of that and they were head and shoulders above everyone else. Noaa which is part of my comparison for this all the galaxy where no two as well And then fell apart in the next year the galaxy they were really good but like you never got the feeling that they were overwhelmingly better than everybody else like. The Marines was was absolutely magical that year and it was wild to watch him go to work but it was never like oh man. This team is inevitable with two thousand eight crew. It would have been a genuine shock if anyone else had one. Genuine shock here are the five players for that two thousand and two galaxy team that played more than two thousand minutes. An remember a different era different number of matches. But as we're Hendrickson Danny Calif Simon Elliott and at the top Alexi Lalas and Carlos. Ruiz just interesting to go down. That path of Sasha victorine seem flare goes obviously in this team as well tyrone Marshall Kevin Hartman Cobi Jones but. Kobe was preparing for that two thousand two World Cup as well the Hanes Mall and I duNNo. I write young Chris Albright Young. Yeah under a thousand minutes for him. I think I'm think I'm I would lean toward that crew team as well. It just felt like they had more ways and Carlos reason was a hell of a way to beat you and he basically beat everybody that year because he scored twenty four goals and then like eight in the postseason Plus the game winner to to win the whole thing. So it's hard to vote against him and I feel like he's gotten slided throughout the Mount Rushmore and everything else for what he was in this league and what he represented but I have to go away crew as well but again I question myself because that's one of the first formative teams that I watched in this league. I obsessed with Guillermo Obsessed Kaylin. You play against that crew team in like what was basically kind of a rivalry game with the fire. It was offended by the fact that you said that you would be shocked. If anybody beats we went into Columbus to go to Emily Cup that year and And they beat us in and they They overwhelmed US They had I remember the the atmosphere I gameless insane at crew stadium fans were really behind them but yeah they had a really good Blend of youth and experience. That would be the way I put it. If you look at some of the young guys they had Robbie Rogers was impossible to deal with. Just blazing pace Yet Chad Marshall like you said in the back was just a nightmare I played against him since college and then I got to the pros and I was like I can't. I can't escape this guy and he could turn and run to at that time like he was he was He's a lot quicker than than people think because later on obviously basically just Marshall things around. That's a weird weird pun there but Yeah he And then you had you had. Gps and maybe a little more scrappers. Upfront Marina these guys that we're able to get goals but they pretty much ran away with things especially you didn't really realize it so much at the time but They they were dominant the entire season. And any and then I'm Alaska so Yeah I I would go with Columbus crew on this one. We got the seating correct. I think that's the big O fans. This is tough. I think this is even tougher than the Casey One. I think this is the toughest matchup bracket really see. Casey New England was much much tougher. Much tougher this understood talking about Galaxy team that won sport shield by six six points but they had twenty three more points than the top team in the Eastern Conference and they were plus twenty goal-differential and they were a goal away from a triple. They were thirteen points better than the top team is. Aren't in the complex. You're right it was. It was really good but it was it was a down year in MLS whereas by two thousand eight the League in started coming out of that sort of I mean it was literally the contraction year. Two thousand one or two thousand two rather so I I do think that well. It's a good argument. In what Escondido did that year? And what's he lousy? Alexi Lalas was incredible that season It shouldn't go overlooked but like crew or just a better team. The like the one thing. Pescadora Day was loosened the box in score clutch goals which is great. But I don't have a ton of confidence in that against Peak Chad Marshall. I just don't a Chad Marshall. Was that good math. All right. That's a fair. I'm looking back looking back in the twenty thirteen Sporting KC team and like trying to reassess the only only finished second. Here's the here's what the differences for me. New England had to which Wolman Kansas City had half a season of by just a little bit of Dom Dwyer because remember. He wasn't he wasn't doing any of that stuff. Mls until the very end of the year end of the playoffs top goalscorer was claudio. Bieler so I think we made the right decision on that New England estimated player. Cloudy wait. Yeah that's true. Makes you give them that deep in front of his name so I feel better about that? One not only did the research ninety out that I did. Yeah you know it was anecdotal before now. I got some numbers behind me. Ninety DC united's the two seat in the side of the bracket seventy-three percent over two thousand fifteen montreal. That's drug was Montreal. Since we get to count them for the whole season I think you know I think the fan votes pretty clear here in the united if they played. Maybe that's a slightly different story. But if you're talking about the greatest teams and MLS history Which I think I kind of lean back on when all is said and done like Google occupies those places in the Pantheon. It's gotTa be ninety. Ad Anybody GonNa make a case for Twenty Fifteen Montreal or are we going to just say if they played DC? United would win five nil? I mean the united team was ridiculously good and it wasn't just an MLS reminder like the year before Echeverri was the best player at Copa. America at Lear before at Gerry lead lead Bolivia to the final of Copa America. Which is insane like his Bolivia in this was during. You know the I'm our era. Argentina Rinaldo Rivaldo Era Brazelle. Like this is. He was at his absolute APEC from a apex from from ninety. Six to ninety nine. And I think this was his best ear. Disunited United Actually didn't win title in the League but then they had they played for the CONCACAF Champions Cup which is the forerunner of the Al. They won that one and then they played in something called the Interamerican Which was the Cognitive Champions Cup against the Copa Libertadores Winter and that was the Janine Yo era Vasco this unite but then they see these united be the Copa Libertadores winner in a game. That meant something in two games so like that. These united teams should be in contention right up to the very end as best. Mls team of all time and if you put them into a playoff bracket right now with peak any FOCACCIA Motza. Jeff Eggers Tony Sanneh at right back Marino and Etcheverry with Roy lassiter running just breaking every off site like this team would be a nightmare to play against even today. I want to congratulate myself right now for inspiring that doyle rant which was up on a mattress that we already knew that it was worth. That was great podcasting. This mantell team didn't do too bad Internet international competitions. Either for sure and this was also the year where they I believe mopped the floor with Toronto. Fc Three nil at home did he drove by in a one off match. I it's not going to be five nil that DC team would win but did you draw was GONNA get a goal or to that that is going to be. I mean do current a one off match. You guys are going to battle that T of C team was the one that would go on to become the AFC team that really defined the second half of a decade and MLS. And now you look at the year before and they walked into Montreal and a one off rivalry match. I know it's Heineken. Reverie weekend and just completely got ran over by this from the opening of the match to the very end Montreal was the better team and just walk right over. I do whatever we can't through malice and camera importer reference here. I should probably just name my son Callum. My Dad's names Calvin. It could be like a shot up. It'd be towel and Cameron. And then we got that perfect mantra impact connection to think about this at the pitch system for saying I defined the decades like the State lost twice the sounders and they also started. Ahmen Qatari who? I don't even remember Josh Williams at Centerback in that game but continued Sarda. Look we've gotten the discovery rights region it's set l. Afc is taking on two thousand five New England and then two thousand eight. Columbus will go to battle with ninety eight united. We got some really juicy match-ups coming into the Seattle region. Do you think Dempsey's going to elbow in the face and this match. That's a topic for the next show. I leave it. I'm GONNA guess now I'm GonNa leave it. I wanted to. Yes so yeah got thinking. It was a good question. We did Trivia with Charlie last night and Charlie seventeen weeks into US doing trivia installed count. Change the rules scoring changes goes back readjusts old scoring pass round so now we bees here an hour into show being actually. I'm just going to change everything we do. This is what happened this is this is what extra time has always been man. This is this is like the definition of the show. We just we just. This rigid show that stays on schedule. Stays on track has specific well. Let's bring it on laugh for five minutes about Let's get to the region ninety seventy nine and eighty percent over the twenty fifteen Vancouver whitecaps that I remember vividly. Just dragging in our post game shows because ad no interest and even playing in that postseason so yeah ninety seven DC. United is going to move through your thinking wrong. And they're all the time in my mind in Vancouver was actually outplaying Portland before concluding got hurt Anyway isn't that Pedro Twenty Six. Now he got it all blends together me. Sorry cavs fans for the slander. Either way. You're not moving on DC united. Think I'm doing a new video series it's called. Mls game-breaker is in our first episode. A couple of weeks ago was on L. Fonzie Davies doing a little bit of tactical breakdown. Our second one Marco Etcheverry so a little bit of cats a little bit of DC united for those who didn't see players like Etcheverry of some of the greats past. Bring to be digging into that one. Well you could find a twitter handle at mattdoyle. Seventy six and on molest soccer dot com. Kaelin was proud of that one as a proud plugger to tune. I've been envious over the years that everybody else has all the stuff to plug in. I'm never never really up for it. Late curator fix. That was well done. Okay DC moves on. We know that and this is an interesting one. Two Thousand Three San Jose in West Cup winners Atlanta Donovan. Great Team D. Rowe Joe Cannon. I WanNa say it was goalkeeper the year. Maybe that year. Twenty Eleven Ella Galaxy. That's you know Beckham. And second half keen and land in and Omar and on and on and on seventy six percent here this four and five seat. I'm surprised that twenty one galaxy got the five is this straightforward. Are you sprays we have you been on this show over the past month? I mean I'm just I'm just filling time all right Seventy six percent of fans for the Galaxy Galaxy. That seems very high to. Does anybody feel that? Sure about this neither way. What feels Heidi you on that. What do you mean like why? Why is that so surprising because well I played against both teams one when I was in college albeit but the two thousand three s can't vote against the two thousand three team and I can't take my own emotions out of this thing. Is this twenty. Eleven team mean. Yeah they were amazing team but I also I don't see it as that big a difference when you look at that two thousand three team in San Jose with Jeff Vegas and I believe his cannon and goal and then etching and and Land and upfront with zero coming off the bench a Baloney. Throw his name in there for sure. Moroney team with that team was really good. They want supporter shield that year. I know they did. They didn't they didn't win on the second. Yes they got an outline a-league team in Open Cup and I don't think Johnson teams started about fourteen games. He hadn't really broken through yet either. Can you name that a League team? The sounders man shot him out. Nah have out there but also this is the San Jose team. They beat the fire team here. And that's a dream that we've like lying. Yeah I think Kaylin for me. That was the biggest part of. They be a really good team. They showed they could do it in big moments but over the course of the season for this galaxy team to win Supporters Shield. And the other conversation is this is the one. Beckham keen land in team that we have in like what they could do in a big moment and I don't see it as seventy six percent to twenty three percent. That just seems like a way a huge gulf between those two sides and I. That's the only part that I'm taking Shula. I would agree with gala there. I thought that this was a little closer but it's hard. It was hard to find reasons to put the oath three San Jose team over them except for that they beat a really good Chicago team in the final. I feel like that's basically saying that. Are you saying let's go? Alexey team didn't beat a team in the final. I am saying that China's a change your starting formation and giving Kaelin a little more support would be talking about twenty eleven. Houston right now and I think the the the the reason we remember it as a bad final is because Only because Adam Christmas I watched that game and that was that was pretty. One sided that That La Galaxy team did not gorgeous soccer but they played winning soccer they. I think there's a league record for most amount of one goal wins. They have the best defense in the league over the past decade since that twenty ten our S. L. team. They won the double. They almost two points per game Donovan and Beckham were both best eleven as work Omar Dela Garza all year long. Sean Franklin was awesome that year two and then they added Robbie Keane for the end of it. The only is kingdom score. The plus keep did not score a goal the only two galaxy players who scored in the playoffs that year Donovan and Be scored in every round of the playoffs until until the file it came to a big moment. I mean not knocking Robbie Keane where they were so good they didn't even need Robbie Keane to score over the five or six games of the back line. I think of that error where you could cause age ain't got moved around so much. Leonardo to me is the worst starter and MLS Cup history so that space eighty got moved around so much because of needs and filling holes but for that one is still have done it and have Sean Franklin playing at that level it was big for them. Who was the second leading score on this team? In the regular season by way this galaxy team as we've kind of referenced they were not an explosive team in robbing get there so if we were playing these crazy rules and we were saying it was like April Galaxy. I think oh three quakes would have a great shout but if we're talking about MLS Cup Galaxy. They move on second leading scorer delight you. Kaelin Chad Barrett four goals all come Landon Donovan was many goals. Ceylan have that year can cost half the year couple in the playoffs. What in the playoffs. I'm moving on moving on. Here's a three six two thousand Chicago fire against Portland Timbers Timbers fans packed this vote because the twenty fifteen Portland Timbers got seventy percent to the two thousand. Chicago fire's thirty percent. Are we going to flip this on? Yeah yeah I mean the timbers? They had an awesome run but they like Middle September. They were below the playoff line. They got hot. They did a good job to switch to a four. Three three brought Darlington Nagbe the inside alongside Chara and and Valeri and the got hot. They won four out of five at the end and they got the job done in the playoffs but this is the same team that missed the playoffs in two thousand fourteen missed. The playoffs in two thousand sixteen didn't win any other trophies around there while whereas that fire team was arguably part of a dynasty So you know all due respect to the timbers and their fans turn out but this is the two thousand just GonNa say were. This is a fire team. That brought Josh. Wolff DaMarcus Beasley off the bench versus a team that started Lucas Milano in a final. That alone is your argument. So there's the gavel from Dave. We're moving on the two thousand Chicago Fire. Well done there. That was a that was about as comprehensive as you get in about two sentences and then this one's as head scratcher here's twenty eighteen Atlanta. We know they're going to make a long run here. Fifty four percent two thousand Nineteen Philadelphia Union. Forty six percent of their fans obviously voting. We thank you for your vote. We take your your voices heard you. I like that twenty two thousand Nineteen Philly team but come on now. It's twenty eighteen Atlanta. They're moving on so Out in that C. C. L. Region. We have got ninety seven united taking on the two thousand eleven galaxy. We got two thousand Chicago Fire. Take on two thousand eighteen Atlanta United. We'll tackle all of those next week before we get out of here though. Let's hit the MAILBAG Dave for one zero six zero s time into soccer dot com. What we got in here once again the go David David come again. He said that last week we were in the middle of our. Mls Mount Rushmore debate. I don't think anyone even recalls that. And we said four spots were too few we need a Mount Olympus rather than just Mount Rushmore. So here is your Mount Olympus Zeus the most valuable Olympian deadly with the lightning bolt that sounds like MVP award namesake. Landon Donovan Hera. Zeus wife never gets the respect. She deserves an often appears in the story. Only as the jealous afterthought of Aslan during that sounds like the fate of a Canadian soccer into respected so therefore it's Dwayne Day. Rosario Alexi Lalas literally doing you know not putting him on his last week. Hades the God of the underworld who better than Kyle Beckerman all time leader in fouls and yellow cards? Zoos next brother was God of the sea. All the thunderous personality and was known for creating storms. He was also a protector. Particularly those who lived at sea. That's three time defender of the year owner of his. Own theorem and crew and sounder. Legend Chad Marshall Aphrodite. He got US beauty. Come on David Beckham next question. Apollo and Artemis were twins and God and goddess of the hunt. This call Mind Fox in the box.

As well as your four minutes of World Cup Action Bafokeng red-carded home face this the god of the forge and fire renowned for his skill in making the gods around him look good. That sounds like Hymie Marino who in addition to being one of only two hundred goal in one hundred six guys also picked up six red cards Athena Goddess of wisdom is represented by Eddie Pope. It wasn't just pope's athleticism that made him grade is ability to read the game. Hesse was the oldest of the Olympians and goddess of Earth and home that's our goalkeeper nick. Ra- Mondo who played until he was forty guys. This incredible I would crowd to have written this column like it would be my best piece of work the entire year. The Messenger of the gods brings to mind.

Words On Water #169: Lynn Broaddus on Her Perspective and Priorities as WEF President

"The word part hi. Welcome to words on water. Podcast from the water environment federation. This is the host travis loop. I am delighted to be joined by the new west president. Lynn broadus lynn. Thanks for coming on the podcast. Always great to be here. So i wanna read a little bit about your background. Also you formed broadview collaborative in two thousand fourteen as a platform for advancing sustainable resilient practices in the water sector you serve as a strategic advisor and facilitator for private sector nonprofit and philanthropic clients throughout north america and are well known for bringing new ways of thinking to the environmental challenges of our day. Those are some of the reasons that we are so happy to have your leadership in the year ahead beyond that kind of snapshot could you talk about your background and water and how you got to this spot today. Well sure it's been. It hasn't been a straightforward path. I'll tell you that my career has been interesting. The hallway and i kinda liked to joke. That i got my start in water probably around eight three when i had a near drowning experience in my my mother rescued me from the pool. I had decided to walk into with all my clothes on and She made sure i learned how to swim. Boy that was for sure. My mother was my swim teacher and later taught me how to rescue myself from a canoe had overturned so my mother always made sure that i felt comfortable around water. Give her credit for that but professionally school. I guess you know my first big chunk of work. I taught school for a while. And then my first big chunk of work post graduate school was with the nature conservancy. And of course that has to do with water but not the way most west members think of of water necessarily and then the next chunk of my work and where i really became a water person was when my family moved to milwaukee wisconsin and i kind of had to start over again and figure out who i was going to be in this new city and i ended up All milwaukee river keeper and it was there. I didn't know anything or very little about the clean. Water act time or can water versus land conservation and As i came to understand the role of my role with the river and also understand that the are how citizens interact with the clean water. Act and that water belongs pla bus. And of course i was dealing with. Us laws but more. Broadly more conceptually we do think of water is something that none of us really owns even in places where you kind of have property rights around water water. Something's very much shared. you can't hold onto it. It flows between us and to me. That was a very empowering realization and i realized i'd kinda come home when i started working in water i just That sort of small democracy that went with that was really meaningful to me. So i worked in that citizen advocacy world for about six years before i went to an entity called the johnson foundation wings spread where i was tasked with a really interesting job. I can joke. I felt like i was cinderella. Who had put on the glass slipper at this incredible opportunity to work with my own budget to work with the best minds around the united states. And it was. Us focused around the different issues whether they with agricultural water energy and water urban landscapes in water. You name it public health and water. And i got to do that for six years. We became known as charting new waters. That sort of effort as hall and it was absolutely fascinating and a great education as well just because everybody that came in. I learned something every every one of these meetings that we did. But it's that's where i met west. That's where i became involved with west. Because west members were often a part of those discussions and but early on in that time. And i had maybe been there a year or two and matt reese said to me. Are you a member of west. And i said no and he said well. You should be and so. That's that's how i came to wealth and It's been a wonderful place for me to be in especially since leaving the johnson foundation to still have this large kadre of like minded and people who are pursuing similar interests no reached doing way and with our with our particular job. Of course now it's an international scope not not specifically. us focused. But that's kind of how. I fell into her float into to water. Well fell in literally back to that story when you were three You know it's been really a quite a year. Twenty twenty right with the the coronavirus pandemic has turned the whole world on its head. The water sector has not been immune in any sense It's been an incredible year seeing utilities. Push on and show how essential those workers are laugh itself has really had to adapt and have events and have a blue ribbon panel to learn about wastewater worker safety and all these kind of changes. I'm curious as you step into the presidency here. Kind of how you envision with continuing to operate in this really different challenging time. Well i'll tell you. I have huge amount of credit to west staff. They pivoted in no time to what it meant to work. Virtually and really kept the The the home machines running. It's very very impressive. Actually and and then to the west members who really stepped up to the plate to help each other i think of the west issue that the w. n. t. issue that came out in january before which you know means that was being planned in october was all a epidemic a water based epidemic and Although we didn't know that corona virus was going to come down. The i shouldn't say water-based epidemic that the water sector would have to respond to that And here we were. I mean that just shows how well prepared are members were. They didn't know about corona virus. They didn't know that it was going to be coming this year but they knew that this was something we had to be prepared for. And so the water sector has had to step up in so many ways not only in thinking about the logistics of running a plant on the the whole operations that go behind that In in the time of the pandemic but also what does what. What are the safety issues around the the the water and sewage itself. You know we didn't know that. I we've come to now have great understanding and But then also the really exciting opportunities of wastewater based epidemiology. You know that that now. We've kind of defensive posture. How do we keep operating in this situation to a very different role that the wastewater sector has in public health in helping us to monitor and predict and control this particular epidemic. And i think it's very exciting and of course opens the doors to all kinds of other ways that Our sector can play a role in proactive public health. Work of course we were born in public health. But this is just a reminder this i think you know we had this incredible opportunity with the partnership with xilin to bring on a chief medical officer. Dr sanderson has been just a tremendous iraq for us a rockstar iraq. As as we move forward. Obviously he'll be with us for a while. But i think it's allows us to really think about what is our long-term role in working with the public health sector and communicating issues around public health and water in it So that's a really interesting opportunity. I think that as we've learned to operate in this virtual world obviously in two thousand twenty and the first whatever months of twenty twenty one we will continue that but once that fades away or you know when we get the vote the pandemic under control and most of us are immunized. And all that sort of thing we have an opportunity to really rethink how we provide our education and outraging connection among members. We now know that there's a balance there. There's there's real benefits to being in person but there's some incredible benefits from the virtual world. We get to reach a whole lot. More people for a lot less money people who normally couldn't afford or didn't have the the the standing within their organization to travel to west tech or to one of our specialty conferences. They can come from wherever they are you. Whether they're on well you know. I won't name all the places around the world or just in the evenings in the united states and canada where anybody can come or even if they're a You know entry level. Employees westpac and our other educational programming is now accessible to them. Where i'm especially excited about the opportunities is with how we can use these virtual platforms to allow people to connect with each other. Maybe informally with panels Interest groups things like that that maybe now we realize we don't have to wait for the big event. How can we use these to allow smaller opportunities. Because we but. I think that one thing the one that really has hit home for me during this pandemic is that. We always knew that wes was important. This pandemic has really shown how being stronger by association really is true. I don't know how we would have made it through without this. The connections that we have through association were better and stronger together in advancing the information asking the questions together advancing that information so i certainly hope that as we come out we it will be a reminder for why we really need to stay together this pandemic is not the only thing going on thankfully that we there are a lot of other activities. A lot of other really important issues out there. That the west's involved with and the board is involved with I love to hear what you're ucla has kind of the other. The other priorities and focused areas for this year ahead. Well yeah i can. Certainly it's a good point place to remind ourselves. The the board president has an important role in all that but but really the overall strategy is set separately from your set years ahead. And we're not going to do anything to disturb that But i think one of the big things that we have to grapple with this year is our business model. You know our business model west business model and anybody who depends on in person conferences and educational programs. It's been sort of turned on. Its head and so how do we. What is that business model looking forward. How how do we continue to provide value in a way that can also sustain the operations of the organization. So we'll have to go. That's something that will much be working on and along with that. It was time for us to be launching a new strategic plan. Anyway and this just exclamation mark around that particular item of the things. That web is already working on certainly strengthening our as our management associations that we member associations that we work with that that's continues to be really important work. The important work that has been doing for What two or so years now on diversity equity and inclusion that will continue to be really important. We've we've brought on a consultant to work with staff and with the with the board and that will help us. Continue down that path And there's lots of different levels to that but to me that that's incredibly important the But for me personally you know. Every president bring some of their personal favorites to the table and gives me an opportunity to really put a highlight around issues that important me around those facing small communities which are often under served Small communities are not just small versions of large cities. They have their own needs in their own approach that that needs to be taken into consideration and we want to make sure that wealth is is meeting the needs there as well but also i have a very strong interest. In distributed infrastructure distributed water infrastructure. More and more. You hear leaders in the sector talk about different sizes scale and innovations that we kinda collectively called distributed infrastructure. That those are going to be part of our future. And i wanna make sure that is at the table for that in leading the way for that not that everything needs to pin it all at once. But we need to be incorporating that into our way of thinking and making sure that that the entrepreneurs and innovators who are putting these in place on the ground in cities like boston and new york and san francisco and portland and wherever that they've got a home at west So that's that's my personal big interest were interests and that i hope to see incorporated. And you know given an airing here at west so that we can figure out how it fits into our work moving forward and so one other bit of recent news that i know you are also really excited about was west being recognized as a partner of the united nations water. And so i'd love hear kind of your take on what that means for wealth and our members. I i think when people see that i always talk about ourselves as a global organization. This really underscores that we are recognized as a global organization. And i wanna to make sure that your listeners. Our listeners understand that this isn't something where you pay subdues. And you get your name on that list. This was a very rigorous application re required. Also the recommendation of those who are very engaged on a global level at with water and so. I'm very proud of that recognition. I think it also gives us an opportunity to To think more globally about the needs in in other countries but also what we can learn in other parts of the world that apply in north america and places where our membership is as a bit stronger But i'm really excited about the opportunity there and kind of curious to see where that that leads for us as i said we are really excited. Delighted to have you as the president of the board this year looking forward to a great twenty twenty one year for waf- a time of change but that's you know. I think we can handle that. We can move on all these great opportunities. Well yet changes a lot. More interesting than stasis especially when it's changed for for good for the good. I do think there's just incredible opportunities. Nee we all live in interesting times and we certainly do great. Well thank you so much. Thank you travis word wop.

Which is The Best Streaming Service For Good Movies? Batman, Lisa Joy, Zack Snyder, Hot Wheels, Us

"Hello, everyone and welcome to slash home. Daily for Wednesday January thirtieth two thousand nineteen today's episode. We're talking about the latest film and TV news. This is slash editor in chief Peter Surata JD mantis pike cast as slash foam writers, squadron buoy everyone in Chris Evangelista who that is. Right. He is back all the Sundance is back from Sundance and later this week will all gather in a room and discuss the best things that you guys saw at Sundance. So none of that for now. But Chris how would your Sundance? It was good. I had a really good time. I enjoyed doing it. It was fun. It was it was a funnel time at the movies. How does it compare to like the Toronto international film festival? I think I like tiff just like a little bit more because I said this before, but I like sort of knowing when I'm getting into whereas with Sundance everything is like a crap shoot, and that can be fun on some levels. But I like the I guess you could call it stood. Tiff but other than that. I had a really good time. Yeah. We'll we'll talk about that later this week before we get into the news. There's a couple of things that are on the site today. They wanted to plug. Fred to Pell has an interview with Rawson Marshall Thurber about Ryan Hanson's solves crimes intelligence, he's in to which worth reading. If you're you're watching that show, Jack drew has a great interview with James badge Dale, and he shares stories about working with Michael bay. Some some hilarious stuff actually, Martin Scorsese and more. So you might wanna check that out. If you're you're fan of Michael bay stories. I would check that out for sure and Stephen prokopyiv has an interview with the costume designer from Black Panther Ruth Carter talking about how her third Oscar nomination in how the links that she went into in making those costumes not look like. Costumes, and of course, we have the last of our Sundance reviews, so all of that is linked in the show notes. Want to check that out there? It's all good stuff. But let's get into the news. And before we dig deep, we should touch on this this news item that I think would be of interest to slash film daily listeners, and that is that floor sqi one of the films that made our most anticipated movies of the year list to Chris's dismay has gotten a new title and that new title is long shot. So Chris I need to get the official the official word from you is long shot a better title than than far sqi. No, it's not floor skis and a good tunnel. With longshot is really boring. So I'm gonna I'm gonna say no, you could have done better here. Or like, I said at the beginning, you could just cancel this movie entirely. Never release it. The movie sounds good though. And I know the year, Chris I will refuse to admit that I will lie if that's the case. But h what do you think what was the better title for skier longshot, honestly, fire ski because it's just more memorable and punchy, and obviously it incurred the wrath of Chris so long shot. Just. Yeah. I don't really feel like it does sound kind of political which is what this movie is going for. But it is very generic. So I don't think it's great. Would it is at least Representative of it's gonna be a long shot of Chris likes this movie, right? No, okay. Let's talk about the real news for today that we have a bit of news about the Batman the Matt Reeves directed Batman movie Christie wrote about this say wh-, what do we know about Matt Reeves Batman foam? Yeah. So Matt Reeves has been working on this standalone Batman movie for a while. Now. In fact, the movie itself has been in development since at least two thousand fifteen when at a time Ben Affleck who will was the new Batman was supposed to write and direct it and eventually he left at least the director's chair and while it's not been confirmed yet. We're all pretty sure he's not going to be Batman himself anymore. In the meantime, Matt Reeves has been developing the film, and he's been a bit cagey about what it's going to be in what he's going for. But in a new interview, he he's given a maybe the most detail so far in that. He he says it's going to be very much inspired by a film Noir. It's going to very much play up the detective angle of that because you know in the. Comics Batman is quote, unquote, the world's Grey's detective, but we haven't really seen that in the movies. I mean in some of Christopher Nolan's Batman films. He does do a little detective work. But based on what Matt Reeves a saying. It's going to be like a full blown detective movie with Batman, which which is definitely different. But we haven't seen before. And he also says that there's going to be a rogues gallery in the film, which suggests there's going to be more than one villain. He doesn't say who's going to be in it. But the fact that he points out, you know, he says, quote, unquote, there there will be a rogues gallery more or less confirms that you know, you can expect to see several of batmans iconic villains in this film in some capacity. And he also plays up. The fact that you know, the one brothers movies are now they're taking a step back from the whole shared universe idea. And they're they're being they're very much their own things. So he says, you know, the Todd Phillip joker movie is very much its own thing. The birds of prey movie with Margot Robbie is very much their own thing. And this Batman movie. Is very much its own thing. So you probably shouldn't he doesn't say this. But it seems like he's applying that you shouldn't expect a much crossover here with those other one brother movies in development yet. Does he mentioned Ben Affleck at all no that does not come up? But like, I said, Chris. It's pretty much a done deal. I think at this point that Ben Affleck will not be in this movie. Yeah. It's interesting. Well, first of all having a rogues gallery in a movie kind of scares me because I in the past having a lot of villains in a movie has not worked out well for for comic book movies, but I do have trust in Matt Reeves, and but hearing this description almost reminds me of there was this miniseries. A few years probably like fifteen years ago called Batman hush. Chris. Did you read this one? Yes. I did read that. Yeah. Yeah. It was it was written by think like Jeff lobe, and it was drawn by Jim we I don't know who inked it or collard it. But Jim Lee's are is just incredible. Jim Lee is overseeing the the university now in the movies. So there's a connection there the that comic book series kind of like had there was like this. Steriods stalker named hush who kept on like sabotaging Batman from far. It was about Batman kind of like going on this hunt. This kind of like trying to solve this mystery of who is hush in one of the cool things about this comic. Book was kind of featured like all the Batman villains. Like it. Like every issue. Like, I if you're the bunch of them for fans use it was kind of cool and also explored the remain tick potential between Batman in cat woman. And I'm not sure if this is something Matt Matt Reese, would do although I feel like this is more of like kind of like the like a graphic novel. That is good in comic form. I don't think it would translate to move is not a great story. But it's fun in the art by Jim Lee is incredible. Do you think there's any chance that this could be hush? I don't think. So. But you never I mean, I could see a drawing some inspiration from it. Like in the ways that Batman begins drew on bam in year one without being straight. Batman, you're one application, but I really don't think they'll add like hush as a character because characters kind of. Yeah, it's really obvious who he is. When you read the book, I mean, it wasn't a mystery. It's like the introduce new guy at the beginning of the comic. And then at the it's like, well, obviously that guy is hush because he's care. So yeah, it's a fun roller coaster ride. There's not really much depth to it is the thing. I think I'm trying to say let's go to our next story. Let's talk about Lisa joy who is one of the show runners Westworld she's married to Jonathan Nolan. The the brother of Christopher Nolan they've run Westworld and she's directed episodes of Westworld, which have been incredible. And she's going to be making her feature film direct toil debut with it with a new sci-fi thriller each day, tell us about it. So Lisa joy is writing and set to direct a sci-fi thriller called reminiscence, which is currently in talks with Hugh Jackman it and Rebecca Ferguson to star. And this will Mark joys feature victorious debut as you said, and it's this ambitious sort of sci-fi thriller slash romance. Which is set in a near future world where technology has enabled people to recapture or relive their memories. And Hugh Jackman is at to talk supply the lead a PI who whose client who for his clients. He recaptures their memories or tries to find their memories of some sort and record. Ferguson is one of his clients who vexes and intrigues him in. They end up falling in love before she mysteriously vanishes a very excited about this. This because you know, lease joy seems like a very smart woman. Number one, number two. She has shown that she has the chops to direct good good stuff. He she directed. An episode of I think Westworld season two called riddle of this Phoenix at this Finks. And I remember that being one of the best episodes of that season of I think vulture call it the best episode of that season. I think she's very talented. I think if you watch behind the scenes interviews with her and Jonathan Nolan it's very clear that she's like the brains of the operation, he just sort of sits there very quietly as she talks about everything in sounds, very intelligent. So I don't wanna undersell Jonathan Nolan because he's written things I really liked. But it's clear what it comes to this show. She sort of taking the lead. Yeah. And this seems like a passion project for her as well because she wrote the script a few years ago, and it made the blacklist several years ago, and she. She is set to again, right in direct it and bring it to in front of studios for a to view later or the deal rather. And it will has not yet been picked up, but it will probably be in a bidding situation, especially with Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Ferguson attached for sure let's get to a bunch a bit of news the hit after we recorded the podcast yesterday in that is that Zach Snyder is going to be making another movie, which is kind of interesting in itself because he's kind of in directors jail at this point. But he's making the movie for Netflix. Not Warner Brothers. So he's leaving his home at Warner Brothers making a film for net flicks. Where he's going to get probably complete creative control. Chris toast about this film. The film is called army of the dead, and it's a heist movie, but it's a heist movie set during as ambi- apocalypse or zombie outbreak. So there's going be operate in. Loss Vegas and a guy. Assembles a team of mercenaries to help him go pull off this high. So I guess it's sort of like ocean's eleven but with zombies, and like you said, it's gonna be on Netflix. And you know, it might turn out really well because Zach Snyder even though I haven't liked anything. He's made. No, while I am really big fan of his dawn of the dead remake, and that of course, is Asami movie. So it sounds like this is hymns were returning to that. And if he can sort of recreate what he did there. I might actually enjoy this. I've been reporting on this movie for over ten years originally net or came up with the story. And I forget someone else was going to direct it. I don't remember who. But you know, now, he, you know, he's taking on this on this the store that he created. I think he co wrote the script and he says in this interview with Hollywood reporter. There are no handcuffs on me at all on with this. One. It will be the most kick ass self-aware. But not in a wink to the the camera way balls to the walls on be freak show that anyone can ever has ever seen. No one's ever. Let me completely loose like this. Now, H E. Does that excite you or scary? More of the latter. Although I admit I have not seen his Don of the dead. I must movie I know I haven't seen. I've only seen the earliest film of it. I think I've seen of his was three hundred and which was surprisingly good. And then like they progressively got kind of worse and bogged down by his directory flares, but I do see why people admire him sa- director. And I feel like he would probably excel this kind of genre. So maybe it'll be good. I don't know. I don't really have any expectations for it. But I willing to be proven wrong. See I feel like I like sex Neider. I love his films. He's been very good at faithfully adapting other people's stories to the big screen like, you know, three hundred watchmen, those kind of things in really the only thing that he has done the has been kind of original. From his own idea was like sucker punch, and even then that was very it was castrated by the studio like you. You could see directors Erlich a extended, which I don't even think is the director Scott because if you read the script, it's like a whole lot different. I I will say this. And I think if said this on the podcasts in the past if you look at any of his extended cuts or director's cuts on DVD or Blu Ray, they're always better than the studio cut by far. So I'm interested to see what he does. Without those handcuffs says he says, and you know, what that actually is going to be. But I I do think the the concept of zombie film in waas Vegas could be interesting. I don't. Now, Chris Christie of run like, I mean, you have seen a lot of horror films. A lot of time becomes has there ever been before that took place in like a casino? I can't think went up, but I feel like there has to be something like that. But off the top of my head. I don't remember anything like that. Does that does that concept interest you at all? I I mean, I'm not. I'm not like a huge casino laws Vegas guys that I don't. But it definitely it sounds different. I guess it depends on how he doesn't. If it's going to be a lot of like on the no shit where it's like, oh, the zombie pulls the slot machine and a bunch of Shane's falls out and zombie doesn't know what to do with it. Like, I I don't want. I'm just picturing scenes like that. Where like the thieves are running through the casino. And they'll be like the zombies are playing craps, but they're throwing like eyeballs into dice. Like, I don't do that. Please going to be that. I hope it's not that. I mean, the thing that excites me about Vegas is there's a lot of like, you know, these confined spaces of the casinos in interesting venues that you could maybe do interesting things as ambi- that have not been done before. And and obviously, you could also take the peop- all those horrible tourists that go to Vegas, and you can make them does ambience. I feel like there's there's something you could maybe do that's like. Inciteful there. I'm not sure if I expect decks nattered be the one to do that. Well, I just I just googled this. And there actually is a two thousand eleven film called remains which is actually based on a comic book by Steve Niles, which is about people trapped in a casino was ambi- outside. So there has been something like this before. But no one has seen it. So there you have it. I feel like you need to add that to your watch list. Yeah. Shaking out stars starts. Mico Hughes who is the kid from pet cemetery. The original pet cemetery Nate fading, Chris. How do you top new story about sex matter doing zombie movie in Vegas, you top it with news of a live action? Hot Wheels movie HD what is going on here. One of others has announced his partnering with Mattel to develop a live action. Hot Wheels movie it's finally making its way towards the finish line as you might say after years and years of li- legendary attempting to make this film and bring it's the big screen. They have been trying to make a Hot Wheels adaptation for nearly a decade. And most recently had tapped just Lynn to helm the film back in two thousand sixteen but the rights expired with legendary and it went back to Mattel, which is making its second partnership with Warner Brothers after the Barbie movie starring Margaret Robbie and Mattel and the Hot Wheels live action film will be. Be that that collaboration through doing know anything about this take like what is the Hot Wheels movie? We have no idea. It is happening. And that Mattel is currently using it to try to boost their new founded studio Mattel studios, there's two ways you could go about this. There's a way that it could be like a fast and furious kind of copy or it's about racing cool looking cars around cities and exotic locations or could be actually a boat these small hot wheel cars as if it's like Toy Story in our world where they're like on some kind of adventure. Which would you be more interested in saying, I would probably more interested in the ladder because we already have fast and curious to take that sort of that first type. And I mean, it would the latter would probably fall it'll bit to similarly to cars, the other Pixar film about talking cars that kind of has some terrifying. Implications for the world at large. But but this would be tiny cars. Tiny cars, and that's cute and fun. The that may not appeal to the demographic that the trend is shoot for which is just like young boys who want to crash cars into other. So I don't know. I could see the ladder more like or even something that's akin to the transformers franchise and. Just with cars. I'm thinking this. Now, if this movie does not have those like those orange or yellow like roadways that you could build into loops and stuff, then I'm not saying it. Chris do you have any interest in a Hot Wheels movie? Absolutely. Not please don't make this. Did you play with Hot Wheels? As a kid we need to know. I I'm sure I had a few. But I'm sure I had like a hearse if they had that I brought up. Get me that hearse but other than that. I don't I have met big into them. I'm sure they sold like the munsters car, which was which was a hearse. Right. I think you know, it was the Dragulescu. So yeah, I'm sure they did sell that. Yeah. Okay. Let's move on. Let's talk about Jordan PL something more up their alley. Chris, you know, when Davor field the trailer for us. I admittedly was kind of surprised they didn't seem to have like the interesting hook that I expected from Jordan Peele, but he's been out doing press. And he's been giving us a little bit more insight into you know, why he chose the story at where it came from. So what do we know about us? So Jordan Peele as we all know is leading the new twilight zone reboot for CBS all access and apparently the the twilight zone influence on his work extends beyond that. Because he also told Rolling Stone that us his new movie is also inspired by the twilight zone. Specifically inspired by this episode called mirror image, which was an episode of the first season of the twilight zone in in that episode. There's this woman and she's in a bus depot and his late at night. And she starts becoming convinced that her d'appel ganger is somewhere in the bus depot because people keep telling her they saw her doing stuff. She has no memory of doing they'll be like, oh, you left your suitcase here. And she's like, no, I didn't what are you talking about? So there people in the bus depot keep claiming they've seen her doing stuff. She knows her. A fact she hasn't done. So this makes her believe there's someone here who looks exactly like me. And you know spoiler alert. It's true. But they all think she's crazy and the episode ends with them like hauling her away to the looney bent, like get this crazy woman out of here. And then, of course, the last minute you learned that she was right and listen to her. So that's what us is partially inspired by obviously if you will ask the trailer to us there's a lot more going on than what was going on in this twice. Lights episode. But it seems like that was the the launching point for the movie does knowing this make you more excited about the film. I mean, I, yeah, I'm already pretty excited about this film. I love you know, the twilight zone as a show I love that. Jordan Peele seems to be really invested in the twilight zone like not only is he doing the reboot. He's he's drawing on it for his film. So yeah, this this makes me more excited. Yeah. Also, I think Jordan Peele was talking about what sets us apart from get out h e no you didn't write this up. But what what did he say? He talked about how forget out. It was civically a commentary about race. But us he says, and I quote, I can't say it's not specifically about race. But I don't wanna go to deep into his meaning because it's there for everyone to discover on their own, and it goes on to talk about how this is a film that's about of black family a horror film about a black family. And that that's something that he has never released seen as far as he can remember in that was something that was important for him to do. And so he says there's a presumption in the industry that black people are the lease in a film in has to be in some way about race. And he wanted to push past that with us and while so we kind of you know, dances around whether this is about race or not because the race of of the family at the center is obviously important to him in the story. But he doesn't want to go. So far to say it's about race as much as get out was weird because he kind of says it is about racing. Any goes back in his leg. Not everything has to be about race. Know, I feel like there's something he like that. We just don't know about this film yet. He is holding some secret close to his chest. So we will probably find out once this film hits theaters. Chris is he wrong is there other horror movies about black families? I mean, they are they to exist. Obviously, they're definitely not as prevalent, as you know, Harleys about white people. Because that's you know, what Hollywood is always done because they don't want to they don't care, but for a long time, they were just like, you know, in their own bubble. But yeah, this will definitely be one of the most mainstream where most, you know, in the spotlight films about a horror films about a black family that isn't explicitly about race. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Let's move on to our final story in. This is something when a hit yesterday we were in our slack channel. Being like this can't be true. And if finally came to the realization that is true. So someone put together the numbers and found out that net flicks right now has more certified fresh movies, according to rotten tomatoes than any than than all of the other streaming services combined H E tell us the numbers. Simple to note that this is not Netflix original movies, all the movies that are available in net flexes catalog and of those movies five hundred ninety six movies are certified fresh at of three thousand eight hundred three nine in net flicks. And that is more movies than the two hundred thirty two on Amazon prime that two hundred twenty three for Hulu and a thirty eight for HBO go slash now. And this is pretty remarkable because prime video has about four times the amount available movies stream seventeen thousand four hundred sixty one to be exact in that makes Netflix just the overall much more impressive in terms of it certified fresh films. So according to this you get a lot more variety of movies on like a service like Amazon prime four times as many movies but on net flicks. If you just, you know, randomly hit the lake through those tiles on the screen. You hit play on one of the movies. You would have a lot better chance of hitting a movie that was well for. Yeah. Well, reviewed by critics right f. Yeah. Chris I know you cover the streaming services for us in a column on the sites. Is this surprising to you? It is a little bit. Because when I, you know, obviously, Netflix has some great stuff, especially in two thousand eighteen where they had Roma and a few other things. But usually when I think Netflix movie, I think boy junk, but apparently not apparently they're better than I give them credit for paying I feel like I don't go to net flicks to look at movies from other studios anymore. I I nowadays. I go to Netflix for the Netflix originals. And I don't know what they have on there. In terms of like a catalogue from other studios. You take it from someone who rights to different streaming columns for slash home dot com, it's becoming increasingly difficult to find quote, unquote, older stuff to recommend on that looks because more and more every month. Netflix phases out other people's content to just make room for their own. So, you know, I know everyone has Netflix. Next is sort of like the gold standard when it comes to streaming. But more and more. I'm finding like Hulu and Amazon prime are the places you really wanna go if you wanna find other people's movies, whereas Netflix is slowly turning into one hundred percent Netflix. Selection of movies has been shrinking for a while. Now to back in two thousand ten they had about six thousand seven hundred fifty five movies available available to stream. But now that's have basically somebody else that kind of surprised me here in a maybe doesn't surprise you Chris because you cover the streaming beat. But I was surprised at how many in not only how many movies who has available, but how many good movies who has available because I really usually think of who is the place where I I just go to watch, you know, network television stuff. Yeah. They were pretty good selection. And like I said Amazon prime video especially has an excellent selection, especially if you want like really obscure older stuff they have like a lot of like horror movies from like the seventies. That no one else has so. Yeah, I it's I feel like no one realizes this. Because for one thing Amazon's interface is terrible. I wish they would get it together, and you know, up their game there. But I just feel like people are just so used to Netflix kinda 'cause they were they were the first to get there to become the popular streaming service. I just think everyone immediately associates them with streaming. But the fact is there are services out there that are better are for wonder because net flicks tend to have newer movies. They don't really have any movies like earlier than nineteen eighty-five. If that affects their certified fresh rating rated movies because rotten tomatoes also doesn't quite go back that far either and the newer films tend to have a higher run to mate. Ios and ratings in general, so maybe 'cause prime has a lot of older films that don't necessarily have all those the reviews required to create get that certified frustrating that possibly as affecting as well on. Netflix is newer catalog as well. A really good point because certified fresh means that you need to have tomatoes meter score of seventy five percent or higher. But that also means that you need to have at least five reviews from top critics in have a minimum eighty reviews, if you're a wide release in forty reviews, if you're a limited release, so you could be right because a lot of like more older films have less reviews on run tomatoes and might not get that certified fresh rating, the the other thing that's kinda surprising to me here is I traditionally think of HBO maybe because I grew up with HBO and HBO was the place where you went to see movies. I thought HBO head a wide selection of movies. On their service. But according to this had has only eight hundred and fifteen movies available. The stream that's like one third of who. And I can't even do the math of how like one twentieth of prime video. Like, that's insane. To me. I I for some reason there was a lot more there and Chris final verdict. If you had to only subscribe to one of these streaming service one of these four net flicks. Prime video who are HBO which one would it be man that's tough because. I don't know. Because like I said, even though other things have better older, something Netflix. I do like some of the Netflix originals. So it's really hard. But if I guess if I had to pick one I would probably pick Amazon prime video and just because I do think they have a better selection of older films. But it's tough. I'm glad I don't have to make this decision. Let me put it that way. Yeah. It c which would you pick actually I'm leaning towards Amazon prime video to go. Because they I think they have the have the eight twenty four a lot eight twenty four films, and they have much more films that are easier. Find from other studios than other that aren't networks, and I feel like I'm starting to use our to net looks to just because of how much they're pushing their original content, but it is kind of a central notch just like have a net. Flicks streaming account 'cause they have so many things see I feel like like, you know, the things you mentioned like the twenty four movies. I'm gonna see in theaters anyways. And what I want. I guess what? I want from a streaming service now looking for less MU I'm I'm looking for more, original content and Amazon releases their movies in theaters their original movies. Netflix does not for the vast majority of their original movies. So I feel like if I had to decide one it'd be net lex because of my purpose of subscribing is for virginal content in probably not the back catalogue. But I'm wondering what which one would subscribe to if I if it was about the back catalogue, I guess it would have to be prime video. Yeah. I dunno. Yeah. Actually also today. The it was announced that the criterion channel is launching. What April Chris second. Yes. April eighth. Yeah. So that's exciting. If you like older movies, and, you know, a more interesting selection of films I'll link that in the show notes as well. Chris your back working people find you online, I met slash home dot com, and I'm on Twitter at sea evangelist of four thirteen HD.

It will see you tomorrow. What if they? Okay. So there may Warner Brothers is making this Hot Wheels movie, and they're making a fun co pop movie what if like the next movie in that that chain is the fun co pop hut wheels movie where the Funke pops like break out of the house using the the hope now God. The Toy Story. Well, have you seen the secret life of pets? It's basically Toy Story would. That's what they should do. They should make it like Mad Max where it's it's after the apocalypse and the Hot Wheels roam the earth like tiny tiny cars driving along like burnt out wastelands. I would see that that'd be kinda cool and people keep stepping on them like freeze. He's Hot Wheels. Here the apocalypse, but it isn't it basically what the cars universes like like people theorized that it's kind of like that whole Pixar theory. Urban theory. This would be blatant like the Hot Wheels will be driving over skeletons and stuff. So you there'd be no deniability that the world has ended. Maybe he's definitely not made for kids made explicitly for Chris benge. Lisa in mind. What what's wrong with that? More movies for me. I say.

To me that Bobby will watching that movie was probably very wistful because he thought, you know, this is what my life could have been just a young man from Canucks Berg with a his God is wardrobe and good going to say this. Zik country music show. He could do some work in that. All right. Let's do some work in mid week. How do we want to handle this? We just go bullet point because of a lot to get to Ravs. We have Bruce Arena. Here's what you need to know from him off mid week, new timbers DP brand Fernandez scored on his debut, twelve minutes into his first appearance in Houston against the dynamo who had been up there tops points per game, a Major League Soccer ball over the top. He's direct. He's honestly casual in the eighteen. He makes it look easy. That's what you want from him in his debut. He seemed to enjoy it as well Atlanta. United five games, five wins five shutouts five instances in which nobody could doubt Frank de Boer. They could doubt there's still room this room for doubt. But they went to Vancouver went on a road trip kept some big guns at home and got a win right now. He's needs to points just to get them up in the standings while he has time to develop what he wants and it's perfect for by the way to go on that point up in the standings. Twenty points eleven games. DC leads division Eastern Conference. With twenty four from thirteen with games in hand. They could pass DC United United after that tough start. That's a big deal. Trying to see Bobbi. They had the shooting boots on thirty five times. They tried to put the ball in the back of the net. Thirty five times they failed to put the ball in the back of the net that isn't MLS record. That is the third shots taken a game ever. Never have more shots taken and no goals scored Josie outdoor. They need him. He had a heel injury. That's why he didn't play in this game Jordan Morris, the Sounders need him. He was one of the best wingers. We were saying the first two weeks. Well, he bricked and easy header. And then he went off with a hamstring strain, and we know what that meant in two thousand seventeen that's no good Christian Predas, your boy for the timbers. He left early. Let's admit a knee injury. That's no good Rodriguez back from injury and he grabbed a goal and ashtray in the YouTube comments. Section says I listen to this whole show for the twenty seconds. Maybe just maybe you mentioned Vancouver every week. I'm a relatively new fan of the show. But it definitely seems like we have. Favorites and others. Get more coverage than the other. So do you have a Vancouver nugget for me anything? No, I will say now, no, Bobby do you have something? Can I say, we they say we don't talk about him enough, then Cougars eighth in the Western Conference, arguably and also, by the way eighth in the Western Conference would put you in tenth right now in the Eastern Conference? You're arguably the sixteenth best team. Major League Soccer. We talk about Vancouver to the sixteenth best team in major league soccer's mounted time she you are getting your portion. We I shot a guy goes misses a PK. We talked about Wong in being arguably the best passer in this league we have talked about Vancouver as much as they have earned to be talked about, and I have no problem with any fan wanting to hear more about their team. I've got no issue with that at all. But we're they stand right now got it out a couple results, but they're not doing anything special. We interview Marco centers, we're really pumped for what he can build, but it's been three months. There's nothing impressive yet and there's nothing really unique it. About what he does you bring this heat for the Vancouver Whitecaps, and you don't feel the same way about Jackson, Maine. I don't care about Jackson main. Yeah. Just just leave it this. There's there may be a reason why you don't like bits doing a bit, right? Yeah. This is a bit. You didn't need bits of the open Cup though. Bruce Arena, coming up, our lines are real very real. It was amazing. Florida soccer soldiers. T- ide-. I'm forever a fan. What I mean? The call by the way, boys. Can I just? That call on that game. I've watched it probably five or six times Bobby is just so pure. It's so pure. Oh, no, no. What are you doing? Hassanin dumb. Don't pass it back. And I can imagine what you guys were like calling. That thing. It was awesome. I it was over. But it's awesome. Because it's not like they got it out or result. It's like they controlled the game for like forty five minutes, this team that started a thirty six year old and thirty two year old central midfield who played professionally in Venezuela, like five years ago, and they're playing right behind a nineteen year old at the number ten position who's done of Argentina's twenty fourteen World Cup manager. I'll hundred Sabella like none of that makes sense. What I just said to you, and the Florida soccer soldiers. And they. And they're able to get this result against Charlotte independence. They played better against the US L championship team than they did against an NPS L team last week. It's, it's the beauty of this sport. It's why we love this tournament because it has that opportunity. And one of the things that you're seeing is along the lower levels of this of the sport in this country, the way it's been for over one hundred years. By the way, the San Francisco league, I found out was established in nineteen o two has run continuously as you have teams that are built out of different pockets, whether it's populations or ethnic pockets or specific immigrants from certain areas and then those teams can represent those communities. So this was a largely Venezuelan group living in south Florida. Some Argentines Colombians as well, and then you've got like Wilson Addis up top who's from Pennsylvania, and played at Columbia University. And then they go and they beat up fully professional side. It's been a lot of fun forward Madison the flow. Mango, everybody's full Mingo now they knocked off pass a motive, and they didn't just knock them off a win to El Paso, and work them. Josiel Nunez pure sauce. Pure intent on embarrassing anybody in front of him. I enjoyed that game so much. It makes me sad that far. Alito is out to the villages are out North Texas out there. Have you been to boxer stadium in San Francisco, like literally, the shot came up, and I was like this looks like Mexico City are like this is a gorgeous view. I wanna play soccer there. So we should organize something I agree. Pick up, there would be don't maybe Jimmy Conrad can help us out. He's a Barry guy. Riddle heat out Cosmo's out Kelsey out in twenty two teams cut it down to eleven then MLS teams will enter. We have nine US CB nineteen years old championship teams just one from USO one. That is Ford Madison, one from NPS L Orange County, f c who won the battle for Orange County against county SC and penalty kicks. And then it's not soccer is football, one of the local qualifier, and that as the Florida soccer soldiers before I do a little bit of a rant that I've been working on feeling for. Impersonation. I hope it's not pyramid station. We shall see Bobby you call these games as well. It's a joy to listen to you do it. What was what was the moment that brought you the most joy from this, this match day in the second round, you've gotta say the Florida soccer soldiers, man. When Sabella got onto that backpass that misplaced backpass tries to go around the goalkeeper, it didn't work at first, and it was such an incredible up than down than up because you said, this is going to be an incredible moment. Then he'll Moses mrS it. But then he regained composure dribbles around the defender and scores. And I thought David nailed it, it was a it was a cool experience to be a part of, and also they were man down and goal down one hundred nineteen th minute at that point. And they're amateurs this. You don't get rain train every day, it was a gut it out. They got it. Okay. Awesome. Here is my take feel free to let me know. If you agree, disagree comet section on YouTube 4._0._1., two zero six zero MLS, extra-time, MLS, soccer dot com for the sake of the you. US open Cup guys. MLS must enter this tournament earlier it has to happen. I know that organizing the open Cup is not easy. It's a jumble of teams of locations of expenses travel, the format changes year by year expansion of Major League Soccer across the board the upheaval in our divisions. It makes it really hard. Everybody has their take everybody has the I'm the smartest person in this room idea to fix the open Cup tailored woman, does I do too. I'll give credit to a whole host of people for this one. Jonathan Yardley among them on Twitter, noted US soccer. Uber nerd and walking Concha pronunciation guide. This is not my idea. I do not own it, but I'm believer. Here's a problem and I have a big problem with this twenty one of thirty two teams in round for from Major League Soccer that is absurd. I watch MLS versus less every single week. You can watch us a championship virtuoso championship every single week. Why in the early stages of the US open? Do we need this? Who does that serve, and I don't wanna copy England oil would like bury me six feet under if he thought I was. But if the English Premier League can enter teams in the round of sixty four in FA Cup then so can MLS teams use open Cup had eighty four entrance this year. Ninety seven the year before this FA Cup has a hundred and twenty four they cut it down from seven hundred MLS should never play MLS teams in the round that they enter in for that matter. I think it's USO championship as well for expansion next year. Twenty twenty twenty three of thirty two teams if they keep the same we'll be from MLS twenty twenty one twenty four of thirty two teams. When Austin comes in after that, you've got maybe Sacramento, Saint Louis, then it's twenty six thirty two. After that, when you get all the way to thirty presumably, it's twenty seven of thirty two that's five teams not from Emma less. Well, in that round you have to change in expect. They will at that time. But here's my solution going forward next year. Inner all in teams in the third round sixty four teams. And US championship in the second as league one to expand -ympia sell. They've got a ton of teams we can set up a more inclusive tournament. A larger footprint there were only eight glow qualifiers this year. That is not enough. It is objectively better when they're here and make runs and get that shun Florida soccer soldiers everyone so twenty twenty two twenty three MLS teams of sixty four in the third round that's one before the current entry point. So for everybody saying, well, MLS teams don't wanna play too many more games. It's one extra game Cindy reserves. I don't care the second round to get there should be this way, twenty-five USO championship nine USO one fourteen USO to ten. NPS L, Twenty-three, local, qualifiers, or give it to more NPS. Oh teams or more yoursel teams there's a lot of them. I think NPS L right now ninety team you can find teams and and besides division winners. They do pick the next few entrance like it's not just division winners that get in. So they're already have a system set up to select the point is that we can figure this out the qualify. Meth. Third, we can figure it out. They have to change it every year already. So. Yeah, you might be saying who cares a small potatoes to open Cup. I don't really care. Well, that's maybe the point here this matters. And he said, Dave, it's the oldest ongoing competition the US we talk about our soccer culture and dole does this ramp better than anybody else? Like at some new thing we have roots. If we don't celebrate them if we don't strive to improve the tournament and heighten its performance its importance, every year, we're ignoring those routes. So this is the battleground our chance you're talking about that field in the bay area that you'd love to be at. You would never have been exposed to that without the OPEC up. You would never have seen that nook and cranny of soccer in the US we I wanna see L far. Alito riotous, caliphs EFC, Wichita, last Shimon menace. I wanna see across divisions between pros and amateurs. I wanna see head to head matchups that we can't get in any other way. Keep these teams from the same leagues apart as long as possible, and then make 'em less than USS championship go on the road. So that part I don't. No. I agree with that. And Taylor has said this a lot every MLS in US L championship team should should travel because it is a strain for a lot of these lower teams to host in their facilities. And now with the expanded broadcasting some of these places aren't set up for those things. I think it's positive I'm okay with still having a draw of who hosts, but the cost needs to come from somewhere else for these lower division teams. And for an team if you say, hey, we don't wanna travel guaranteed. Then you should have to pay for some of the travel of the lower division teams to come to play, you, and as expands, it's going to get easier because you've got a larger footprint, as you're adding more teams you at Austin, now of a sudden, the, the Laredo heat antiques, Rados, they have a closer team to go to you add Sacramento, potentially to molest, and now you've got closer trip for L far Alito. They don't get the San Jose earthquakes, all those things like that, it just gets easier as you go completely agree with all those points. Mike counterpoint is that has an opportunity and USO championship and everyone involved in the professional game has an ops. Opportunity to give momentum's to places that may not get that opportunity. Otherwise, give those teams riotous FC, Wichita calisi, far Alito, whatever it is, give them the gate. Give them the money that comes in give those communities, a big moment. Give those players those coaches the fans the chance for an upset because when you're at home, we know you're tuned to win is so much better. It's a small sacrifice and I have a big affect on the overall soccer ecosystem. I mean, and you better tournament, it's better stories. It's a richer. Overall soccer culture that we're building in this tournament can and should be a big part of and you mentioned send reserves if you don't want to we talk to every molest coach every academy director in every team and they say, we just need good competitive games for our young players to get better as endless academies, grow this. First second round third round open Cup games is the perfect place to put the kids that you think are your future to give the kids who are playing for US team because they're not allowed to play in open Cup. Keep those. Kids and opportunity to play against to playing games where it's winner go home and everything matters. Because when you're teaching young players, you're teaching them, philosophy and style. And what you want, but you also have to learn how to win, and that's a whole different skill set. This is the perfect place to do it. L far Lucho, put a player out in central midfield, and Heywood are S army Haywood, who has five caps for Panama and his thirty four years old. Imagine for sixteen or seventeen year old academy player to have the chance at a one game knockout to go up against the guy who has that type of experience. Then when you get to see L then when you get to account for a Cup qualifying you have that experience, you sort of know what you're gonna face to a better level than what you're getting right? By the way in the open Cup. You do have limits on the amount of non-americans that can play for the professional team. Yes. So that's where you can go to hear academy. And that's where you put it. I love this tournament. I watched him less mid week and objectively speaking, the open Cup games were more entertaining took my attention more than those games. And that's because it was win. To go home, and it was our tournament. It was the United States. It's what we've built over the course of a century and this year's been incredible. I thank my lucky stars that they're bringing in people like you guys and others to actually call these games and give the early rounds the shine that they deserve. There's more work that we can do. That's my only point. Let us know what you think announce I've talked about the reps. Can I have one quick shoutout to shutouts it? We didn't mention caliphs didn't make the run this year. Like they wanted to place face off against Vegas. Eric Wynalda against the team, he created kief Coskun ran that team. They played some gorgeous soccer. Dennis Flora's is back in that side coming back from Leyland that kid can play like, there are players out there that I hope MLS in US, L championship coaches are watching like, we need to get that guy into our team. And those are the teams that if you expand this, they start to get a little bit of shine in that they jump start their careers come back to us. Bobby come back to us, do Dow is beautiful. That was are you crushed. I appreciate it. Then I've been getting riled up about this a better than stars born. Come on. Let me and Bobby have been locked in about this about three days. I don't know where not not start born about you. Got you. I couldn't figure out which one I soon both. Let's talk about the evolution the timing alluded us a little bit here. But the news is pretty straightforward after less than two years a year and a half. Brad Friedel lost his job as the head coach of the New England Revolution. We've talked all about this year the problems that they're having between results in motivation. And everything else might burns has been with that organization for fifteen years, the last five or six, I think as the GM he is no longer. The GM is no longer with the revs, Bruce Arena now holds the soccer keys. He is the sporting director and the head coach just two teams in Major League Soccer have those monikers he's the Kalisa he kind of liked that. It has it all now he's gonna spoil it, though. Don't hire tyranny might lead to the Ron direction. Those tame signings aren't gonna get better under a Lancaster. We're gonna talk about it in just a second. But I had an opportunity to catch up. With Bruce earlier on this Thursday. Let's take a listen to that interview it is time now for AT and T. Call to the field. And we are going to Foxborough and Bruce Arena, new sporting director and head coach of the New England Revolution. Bruce, welcomed extra time, thank you. You have me on. It's nice to have you back in Major League Soccer. Let's keep it real simple. What brought you back? Well, I'm a coach and that's coaches. Do they coach teams? And I've been offered the opportunity and in conversations with the ownership and management. They convinced me that the revolution going to be positioned to be more successful. And I think it's a great opportunity. I think Boston's just a great sports town with great teams and championship teams and we want to elevate the revolution, two point where we can challenge championships as well coach you say, was there ever thought for you after Couva the US national team that you wouldn't come back or was this inevitable? No, it wasn't inevitable. Because before we started. Speaking last week, coaching team wasn't necessary necessarily on my mind. I've been enjoying my time away from the game and wasn't considering getting back into coaching anytime soon. But when the call came, and we discussed in detail the opportunity, here, it made sense. The need to take on this project. At least in the media, I've been to Manhattan beach, I've seen sort of the life that you can lead. There is really nice. What sort of ambition does this club have what did they sell you on what have had to be in place for you to say you know what I'm going thousands of miles away and I'm getting back in the game. Well, simply the fact that they're going to get behind team. We have nutrient facility, theme bills will be completed by the end of twenty nineteen. There's a stadium down the road, I inherited team that's not been shift Scheffel today. So in my view, we can only feel you can only go up, and that's a great opportunity to step in. And I also know from the past Boston's just a great city when not only sports, but a great city to live in. So another new experience in life, but coaching coaching. And, and it's another challenging opportunity. And that's what excites coaches when you have a challenging opportunity, and certainly, the revolution will be challenging off. Unity in just one second. But I have to ask, and I think I can imagine what your answer might be to this. Maybe you saw palton Oreos article at the Affleck's, some anonymous, folks in there basically saying, the MLS changed a lot in three years, and they're not sure Bruce Arena can adjust what, what would you say to folks who say that? Well, that's. Everyone's entitled to opinion. But I, I don't believe that that said, even close to being an accurate statement. But listen, only time will tell we know in this day and age. Everyone has an opinion and that's fine. And I look forward to the challenge. Let's say like the last year and a half. Do you have a four box screen set up in your basement, you just main lining ESPN plus like, I am going to games or is this been an actual breather for your little more casual now I go to games and I've been a games in Los Angeles? I, I watched games for out the week. I have a son that happens to be with the team that give me some insight on on the things that are going on inside the league. So this fight with some people may think that I I'm, I'm pretty confident this league is fast me knows this league historically, like you do what's changed in these last couple years, because the growth has seemed breakneck to a lot of people and not just the money, maybe certainly this expansion. There's a the infrastructure and league. And by that, I mean, the stadiums, and the training facilities have certainly been upgraded. And this this. Clearly more dollars invested in players, but nine any more than, you know, than than I've, I've handled in the past, and I think it's actually a, a better situation in terms of going out and acquiring place from abroad. There's no question about that. So again, it's all about getting a right players. Position in the right places on the field and get Nassar, gaming day in and day out in your environment and trying to create a winning environment. And obviously having to get the job on each and every game and getting three points. Obviously Bruce, hear what you said about ownership getting behind you and folks are the fourteen million dollar rumored move at the deadline that kind of fell through there. He said in your press conferences morning that you don't think any club in the league needs to spend like Atlanta's spins to win championships that struck me as pretty interesting given the galaxy kind as you lose two. There were not exactly penny pinchers when you were winning them Las cups a few years back. What's the budget that you're looking at on the players side? How should that affect expectations? I've not put the pencil for the pay front and firms of a budget that'll be. Healthy discussion office with management and ownership. Just look at reach history Toronto did when a championship, but they also did not win championships with the, the biggest budget in the league and fell to make the playoffs last year. New red bull, one is supported shield with a of budget certainly below a number of top spender. So there's not a direct correlation from spending dollars and and being successful on the field. Certainly it helps. There's no question about that. But it's still about being smart about your resources and you know, getting it done day in and day out in your environment. Because some MLS teams frankly, have not used it, smartly. And, and I think the revs might be one of those. Well, the, the easiest answer to that question is get the right plays the town money, and that means you have to be smart about how you scout in how you evaluate players. You know, one of the flaws of ten is it simply a there was some place, salaries inflate because of it, and is able to tame close to him. So there's this the plus pluses in the minds of that system. But the end of the day, all successful team, and we'll successful organisations, of successful course, the people that are there, and I need to surround myself with good people. I need to do good job. And if we all do our part it'll add up to be more successful. And certainly that's our goal. Bruce reference the rebels in Toronto as kind of guides me into this question, pretty seamlessly here, we talk, a lot about identity on this show, a Major League Soccer and the red bulls with their tactical side, as well as the academy. Toronto of see you were on a aside, where they were spending big on some big name players there, if all goes to plan here at the revs, and I know it's early days. You just took the job. How will we be describing this club from an identity perspective in, let's say three years while I can't answer that question how I can probably answer it in for years to early to tell, you know, we, we don't? I don't go into a a project with a lot of ways on how we wanted to sing who? You don't in you evaluate. You have both on the field and off and empty do that. Then, then you're able to develop a personality that will hopefully be consistent and physician your team and your club to be successful. And that's all I'm gonna try to do and hopefully, three years from now, you're going to say this is a real solid organization and they can compete for championship. Stadium. We're all waiting with baited breath on that one as well. It could completely change soccer in New England. There's the academy they're scouting, their sports science, you know, sporting directors a big job here. Where's the most work to do as you see it right now? And I know you said you gotta evaluate but there are places that stand out, we need to invest here. I have to focus here. I need staff here now. Well, it's a little bit of everything. But, you know, I, I know we need to get caught up Steed in terms of sports science side of it. We need expand our scouting and, and, and do a better job there. And we need to better a coach, we have to select the right players, and we have the phrase using coaching coach up position on the successful. So that's going to be the job of the sporting director and the head coach. From experience these dual roles. I remember when I first started covering this league you looked around there were a lot of guys doing this. And now it's Peter Vermes, and you how is there enough time in the day, Bruce helped me understand how you can do all this? Surround yourself with good people as well. I, I don't claim to be doing everything. I'm not going to sleep in the floor in the locker room serving meals that we're gonna have a lot of good people can share all the duties and responsibilities that we have, and perhaps in time, I relieve much one of those responsibilities, but in the short term. I'm going to do everything like chance to move this administration in the right direction. And hopefully that'll naval successful was thinking about this interview, and what I wanted to ask you, Bruce, one of the things was about coaching, and I don't want to parse words here. But sometimes that's the job, you mentioned there that may be one of those things might come off. Your plate is coaching still your passion or could there come a time when you step back into the front office. And let's just say hire someone to take over that side of the gig short veteral possible. But if it's not if it's not a passion right now, I'm pretty stiff it get myself all project. So certainly it is. You know, we I think when you're a coach never leaves you. And, you know, I said today in a press conference I've become an expert of last year and a half, I've been able to sit back, whether it's at home watching games on, on television or sitting in the stands. I become an expert. I know everything now. So. I'm good physician. I in followed all the sports going on country. I've I I've done a lot of bucket list stuff that I've really enjoyed through sport and other things. So I've really I've really position myself well to take on this responsibility now. And the passion Kochan is certainly still there. And yes, perhaps one day, I would just move into a front office. But right now, the responsibilities I have at the revolution. I'm quite confident that I can take them on and be successful. You'll probably recognize it. It's from you, Bruce, I could learn much more from Bill Belichick as I could from the manager of Manchester City. Is there a dinner on the books of red wine some nerve any yet, but one thing I would say that was a really accurate? Because I think today, I would still say the same thing, I think, coaches are, are very similar, and I've had the unity of the years, especially in Los Angeles. I've sat down the coaches the Lakers or the dodges. Over the kings, and, and, and we share a lot of things that we experienced day-to-day in coaching, and it's really been beneficial. So now being in Foxborough around arguably the most successful coach in the history of the NFL, and perhaps in the history of our country. So if I get an opportunity sit down with him, I'm sure we're going to share experiences in and I can learn awful lot from them. Well. Age cross guys, you know, I'm just wondering here who is the are you the soccer Bill Belichick or e the football Bruce Arena? I'm trying to figure that one out. You can fill roll your eyes immune. I, I don't think I should be mentioned in and same sentences still Bella chip, but I'm honored to be here, and, and hopefully, you know, we, we can be college as well. Bruce, I'm glad to have you back glad to chat with you here. I do have to India with the question on the national team. Everybody's still thinking about this. You got criticism for not qualifying for the road Cup that was going to happen. Everybody knows it. You told the sim stace goal that you felt like you had nothing to redeem yourself for their no regrets here. No second guessing, nothing in hindsight at all. Disappointed that we didn't qualify. But I thought our coachie stiff and our players put in a tremendous effort and twenty seven and when I took on that responsibility, we realize that we were going to go down to the last day. And, and yes, we fell short. But unfortunately that sport on that day thinks it and go our way. And you know, when when teams are successful you know, whether you agree with this in that you don't it's not the responsibility of one person, the responsibility of a lot of people, and we all fell short and to this day and still disappointed. But that's also sport, if you look around the in, in, in a variety of sports at all different levels in our country over the last couple years, you'll see very Shimla situations. You never happy with it. But hopefully it's an experience that US soccer faced that they can learn from and hopefully. The next time around, which is a qualifying for this one twenty two World Cup. The US team will be there. You all goes eight a US octopi stronger and the experience that, that will face the technical staff will be be such that you can learn from it. So I see nothing but positive things ahead for US opera and MLS. Busy schedule here. Excuse me, will let you go and look forward to seeing what you build out there. Thank you, appreciate the call. All right. Those are the words of Bruce Arena. What are your words? What do you make of this? The whole thing revs top to bottom, and we can focus on Bruce, or you can rewind back the freedom burns, if you know there's a lot going on here and we've talked about it now over the last few days because we didn't have time to talk about on the show. So it started to solidify a little for me. There are question marks around, and you ask those questions and everyone else, you mentioned palton Oreos ass where BRUCE'S at in terms of MLS where it stands right now what his job is what he has to do. I think Bruce is a good leader in terms of setting up this organization to move forward in terms of building out the front office, building up the scouting network, the academy. Those are the things that are taking MLS team to the next level around the league that the Rams are catching up in, and I think Bruce can do that. But the biggest part to me is one the sign from ownership that they care, and they want this to change by bringing. Bruce Arena in an I think, Bruce Arena is the one guy in US soccer landscape that can hold the crafts attention that he can. He can convince them this is what I need. And this is why, and they'll believe it because they've known him for thirty years. He is the most successful coach, but not just the most successful coach. He's the big name you brought up Bella check. And. Yeah, that's the whole you know, ridiculous compare different things. But Bruce Arena's the biggest name in US soccer he's the most successful national team coach. He's won MLS cups. He's just been around I still remember when the galaxy fired route heart and he was in the stands, and they caught him on ESPN. And it was like the energy from everyone like that guy can turn this around, and I don't know if it's that here, but I think he has the gravitas to go to ownership and say, this is what it takes to win in Major League Soccer, this is what this club needs. And I think a guy at Robert Kraft level, who maybe as an always involved in the side, 'cause he's got his son Jonathan who more organized will understand will respect. Bruce Arena because of his resume because of their relationship and get involved, and it feels like his task is more than winning. Like he is a charge other than just winning a championship. He can be successful, if he does things other than just win on the field, which is take that franchise to a new level. It feels like a reboot in a lot of ways, and you talk about MOS originals. And I was a front front row spectator for sporting Kansas City's reboot, not equating the two or say the same. There are a lot of different circumstances there. But it was a club that had fallen on hard times it wasn't as relevant as they wanted to be. But still had support and still had some financial backing. I think it's important again to parse BRUCE'S words and also Parcells actions because he said this came quickly for us, we'd had conversations of the past. But this came quickly, which says to me that when he said, we need this as far as finances, headcount resources to be successful. Maybe that new stadium. You heard him hinting an awful lot about that. They all have about Boston. All boston. Nobody says Foxborough that those things were coming in. It wasn't a question. Yeah he has the resources he want. Now he has to figure out how to build this into something other than what it is right now. Which is rudderless now trying to get at him with that with the identity question. Like what will this be anything smart of Bruce, not to stake, his claim and right now and I don't think we're going to see anything that's as obvious what we see with Peter Vermes with what the red bulls have built, maybe even with L AFC is building, because I don't know that he has this one DNA that he's going to build in. It's just going to be smarter. It's going to be more intelligent about the sport. And I think he's going to use lean on a lot of other people to maybe run sessions, because that's not going to be his role and he's going to have to have some insistent GM's who know the league who understand Tam traffics, and all those things that are moving around, because he's not going to be have time to look at either of them. And I don't know that Bruce Arena where he's at in his career is really going to be the details numbers guy on it. But in general, he knows how to talk to players and sell an idea to them to come in. He knows what talent looks like. And one thing he's done a best in his career is to trust talent on the field, and set them up in a way for them to be confident to go out and play. So it won't be as detail oriented, maybe and clear, but it will be more successful feels like the best way to break this down. There are two components with New England Revolution right now. There's what happens on the field with him as a manager in winning losing games. And there's what is going to happen? Maybe what needs to happen off of the field. Right. It feels like be what's going to happen off the field? Bruce Arena is undoubtedly the right guy. The cloud he brings the notoriety. The respect. He brings everyone involved is key. And he's probably the best person for that job. But you also have to ask about a and I think a is a much tougher question. Because if you look in twenty thousand nineteen that coaches are successful in Major League Soccer, and that are successful around the world, they are the guys who are up on the sideline shouting. They are the guys who try and control. Every little thing that happens all around the club and specifically on the field, they are incredibly detail, oriented, that wasn't Bruce Arena. And he was incredibly successful. He was the right manager for what was the timeline nineteen ninety six until two thousand fourteen his way of managing was fantastic. But it's different than what we see from Bob, Bradley and Peter Vermes and Lucci dollars. And I think that's a real question as whether his style of being a head coach still works, and how much a impacts be if he isn't a successful head coach in two thousand nineteen of his method doesn't still work in should add, I did text people who played for Bruce, and they said, that's what he did because it was the right thing to do in those areas. He's a smart guy. He knows how to coach in multiple ways he can adjust he will adjust. So I'll put that out there, but I remain skeptical and I do wonder how much does a impact be if he doesn't win on the field. Maybe isn't going to earn hurts him in his mission to get things done off the field. I don't think it will because I think B is more about his ability to attract talent and not talent in a player since talent in the academy director since the scouting sense. Assistant coaches all those ranks and I'm not sure that there's anybody in US soccer that can snap his fingers and have people say, I want to work for that guy. I want to go to that organization. You talked to anybody who is in LA to enjoy the good times and get pushed out. Yeah. It's like a cult the gal I mean, I don't want like actually wanna back that phrase up a little bit. But it is, they're all very passionate about one thing, which is how awesome it was to be there. How much fun they had how much success they had. And how Bruce is the figurehead and driver. Mostly is for the players to. I just wanna add that it's similar for the players who played under him through those years. The one thing I wanted to mention you talked about Kansas City I lived in New England or I lived in Boston for four years. I went to games which is pain to get to when they're good people show up when they promote people show up, like we talk, sometimes about markets that struggle for relevance people care about the reps. The revs have struggled as a team on the field over the last few years. People show up to that stadium and go to games if they're any good. So it's not he doesn't have to hit a bullseye from five hundred yards away on this one. If he has a competitive team out there in twenty twenty more fans will show up twenty nineteen and I don't know that that's always true for every team and the stadium would be amazing. If the revs build a stadium in downtown Boston, it will be packed every single week. It'll be one of the best atmospheres and Major League Soccer it'll be one of the best cities, even without that it will still be a good market for Major League Soccer if they can put a competitive team out there and this is Bruce Arena's job right to prepare them for perhaps that moment that stadium. In Boston happens. We've talked about it for years, and no news here, just reading between the lines. They're saying if not get that organization, a place where they could make the jump or be successful in Foxborough because I remember that Eastern Conference championship before they went to enlist Cup. I mean, that was rockets that was crazy that atmosphere with Syrian NRI in that stadium packed and Jermaine Jones. In the crafts on the field afterwards. They inter member interviewing them and they're giddy their jacked. They do care about the team. It may not always folks from the outside looking in seem like it. But I think this decision is a doubling down from them to say, yes, we care. Yes, we will devote the resources. Yes. We see a big future for this part of our sports sports business. And people say, why do it. Why come back, of course? He, he said, I'm still passionate about I still want to be a part of this. But feather in a cap for Bruce Arena. I mean, if he builds this market up and leaves the league better place because we see it, you need strong market across the league. Can't just be Seattle. Right. The has to you have to have push and pull him priva- leans trading that, like we're the new thing where soccer city USS, if he can build this up and it's not just Boston. Right. It's the New England region and you start to, to, to build support there. And you, you may be restarted or reenergize the robbery with New York, you've got Toronto and Montreal right there as well. If you can do this, this would be a huge. Final chapter for what Bruce Arena did for those who knows men. He, he kinda hinted at it. Maybe he has the passion for coaching now he says he'd be dumb to take this job if he didn't. But he left it open that may be in the future. Who knows things happen? He might be willing to back it up and let somebody take that spout way dream of team of Matt Reese Reese. Matt, Matt Reese, I think, is in Columbus, Kinney arena. Elliot see who else was a part of these squads. Where's where's yeah. I don't know. We'll, we'll see where staff comes from because they kind of scattered did their own thing while he was waiting around Bruce Arena and the revs for a one zero six zero MLS extratime minimalist. Soccer dot com. Says he's not sure yet when he will take to the sideline Mike Lapper the interim coach will handle things Intel then we twelve was due it. What's your ESPN plus game of the week of Partito this month ago? I so it's runoff see you mentioned that record setting shots. It wasn't actually a high expected goals from them. It's frustration to me. It's not we're creating a million opportunities and we just can't finish its shots through traffic shots from distance because they don't have that final killer instinct now without Josie out store, and this team, I think is good enough to compete in the Eastern Conference. But they can't do it the way they're set up without Josie. And they're teetering. They're, they're five five. Winless, they had a four game losing streak going into the home drug DC United. So this is a huge game for them. Even though it's a tough row chipped for them to go. Mid week go from mid week to oursel- on the flipside oursel- Sam Johnson scoring goals. That that's Toronto. No, he's getting the bone is putting the ball in the back of the net oursel- hosting thrown three PM eastern on Saturday has been plus not people's game the week we have to mention at San Jose, Chicago three thirty PM eastern on Saturday, would be shown, or free for you. On Twitter is mattdoyle actually Matteo Mehta's puppet master, I ask that because Matisse omega is basically going straight to the dole ham book here, armchair, we'll see probably wrote this on, like what when was he drafted probably twenty sixteen to wrote this stuff. Basically Jackson you'll is one of the players with the practice futures in this league. He likes his personality. He thinks he's going to go to Europe. He's teaching him. He's a great player. We love him. He's a national team player. I feel like somebody was on this bandwagon. I though I just can't think of who it was probably you Dave knows Doyle. We'll give it to it's all right, right. Do this right now? You can't you don't want to do this bit can't there for okay? I don't ever remember you being, you'll guy before Doyle, just there's literally evidence, the evidence the evidence they are things in the either on the internet that are very go on the dark web. And say interesting posts, there's no, there's no. American domestic player who played a teenager that Matt didn't claim right? Like, who could you not do this over there? L just throws it out there. And then he goes, well, we all know Doyle, plants contrary. He actually planned to this Fisher basically, based run down ten years. The question about Doyle is how if he's truly the puppet master from Matteis Mehta. How would he look in backwards hack his Patel, Mehta is rock in the backwards ball cap during training every day? And like ping, upper ninety balls and spin it, it from crazy angles basically doing f- to trick shots after training with his hair flowing in a backwards cap, and it's extremely admirable in Waco, or anything I will ever do. There might be plus game of the week, Josse Artis now a designated player going to Minnesota PM eastern on Saturday, Minnesota, we talked about on the Lascaux last nine games, haven't exactly gone how they wanted. They have not been winning at home, at least not enough to quench the thirst of that fan base, and Adrian heath as your pin just fell. I drop it was it was a little bit of no paper to write on Columbus. If we're talking about form, Columbus is not a team. Mm that we want to talk about foreign with them. One win in their last seven game six or ELS Minnesota needs W. So this is you don't wanna say must weigh in it's MLS early like there's more opportunities millions coming up, but this feels like one of those moments for Minnesota, to like able to take a little bit of a breath after what agent he's gone through over the last month and a half now at this no offense, Columbus, Chrissy is not the Manchester City of less. What's your Elliott? You're like what during heat has gone through. Yeah. Agent heath Ghandour match oil's been complaining about him. That's like as stressful thing is you can have, by the way, we didn't mention this yet will trap go. Check out his outfit for pre and post game from this weekend. He's wearing this like, Impala NCAA, khaki pants. He's got just like Gregg Berhalter. No. He's got a white button down with jacket on and the button-down on its collar has, like golden stripes. It's amazing really. We'll Trump Gus what we'll have Bradley say, probably got a hold of him. They're actually stole bobby's ESPN plus game of the week those wondering about. I made a mistake. In actual game of the week. Is Philly Seattle? Now you're just going to do. I'm doubling up because Bobby doesn't wanna be typecast got nothing to say you know, I would say I'm just generally flustered. By the last few minutes of the show. Good. Have you exactly where I want you, then Philly their role in top of the easy thing found the picture acres Golding? Golding Tigers cameras in here. Yeah. That isn't they can't him they can see it though. That is not the sort of swag that I expected from willed, I respect. Well, tweeted from the ETR, absolutely respect Philly Seattle. Seattle got a good win mid week against Orlando railroad is back, but Jordan Morris is out. And now they have six of seven games on the road. It gets tougher. Their pace is right there with Elliot. See right now. I think just two points back same games played, which is pretty incredible given how much we have drooled over Elliott Philly have a great opportunity again. To say it's not just a little bit fluky in the bean of the season. This is who we are. We are one of the best teams in Major League Soccer interesting match appear chevelle co against that back line because he is dominant. He won every single battle against Ronald FC last week, he is what that's your thing that you do say, belco has been dominant as a backup as putting his back into defenders. He wins every single because defenders get locked into contact with him. And they don't even track the ball. And it was. Mavinga semen Zabaleta who are pretty good physical defenders, and they lost every single one of those fifty fifty s with him. Bobby can't talk about Philly we'd be so we have to move on red bulls. Atlanta Sunday f one five pm eastern. I hope you didn't have anything good to say leave the show. I think that I had a vision of how the show is going to go and it's zagged at every opportunity for it's like media coming into the locker immediately post game and getting in your fans. We'll see we'll see how do we feel about that? By the way pity Martinez very strongly about it. It's that it's bad or it's good. I feel very strongly that it's one of these moments where people say there you go to the butcher shop in though, one's pressuring. You is not enough pressure and MLS. And then they're like, it's kind of uncomfortable to have media in the locker room right after a game. It's inner space age difficult to deal with. Yeah, you say all the time there's not enough pressure and it's not hard enough, and then you find this difficult, but it's different than the difficulty, you, you find in Europe. And in South America. And it's wrong, and I think that's ridiculous. First of all, every American professional sports, which gets as much coverage if not more than a ton of these soccer teams they deal with it. So it's not impossible to deal with and on top of that, it's something you have to answer for your results. These are the moments you are trained as a professional to do. It's hard. It's uncomfortable. Yes. That is all you complain about to make players better. I think part of putting Martinez point. And I agree with you. By the way, was that it's like a it's like a sacred place, even the coaches and supposed to come in there. I don't disagree with them you to said, but what you just said, was completely off base from what the original point was, which is he doesn't. He's not saying that he doesn't wanna face the questions. He's just saying they don't they don't have to face questions in a lot of countries. First of all. Face the. He actually says. Want to respond to hide from the media and not have to deal with them as much, and that's his choice, by the way, if the media comes in the locker pretty Martinez or whoever can say, you know, I don't want to talk to their choice, and then that's your communication. Then anybody can make what they will with that. And they can talk about the fact that you're not talking, I think back in maybe say, this is a dumb reference to like, wizards, two thousand ten Aaron Holbein throw that one back. Now, we're done exit mistaken his one game he plays he sits in the locker room for twenty five minutes in answers to it. If Aaron Holbein can do it point wasn't about answering questions or not answering questions. It was about the nature of the locker. To you. I personally, don't think locker sacred in a certain way to American athletes, but it's not sacred in the we don't take questions in it, but that's just different cultures. It wasn't about taking questions or not taking questions. It was about what the locker means to you, culturally understood. But part of the protection of the locker room in other countries, they then can control how much they have to deal with the media, when they walk out, and there's a mixon that they walk through they can walk straight through it, and don't have to stop. They don't have to deal with media. If they don't choose to when Boca Juniors loses they can walk right past the media. When Stoke City or mentioned United loses. They can walk around Stoke City because when Shek are losing. Aktar would always answer because my number one squad just part of the whole environment. I understand what you're saying that it's for the team at sacred, but you have it's not open the moment the game ends you have time and no one's going in pre-game. So it is your space to operate by being eastern on Sunday. Just want to make this point. You don't read Bozell United for us. You don't podcast from a bathroom, right? There's, there's places you do things there's places you don't. It's not that you don't podcast. It's not that you don't do radio. It's that you don't do it in a certain place. That's what this is about. It's about the action. It's about what a certain place means to you and your culture. Okay. Let's say you think for a one zero six zero s into the mailbag grilled cheese from Andres in the control room, the impact, or their sore new real cheese sandwiches named after players. The Evan Bush is mozzarella cheese pickles mustard in a hot dog bun. I didn't realize it was. That's that's sacral buns are different in different places. They're more like roles. Into Rana this weekend, which is in Canada. And I had a veggie hot dog. And it came on a roll. Okay. The of is Gouda cheese. Smoked meat and mustard in a hamburger bread. Another inch Macari Sonya the triple cream Brie, cheese and awry and Nacho pro Vallone thereto in a hot dog bread, which of those sandwiches, would you pick? And one of the best sandwiches, you can come up with based on MLS players. We'll do the players later because I want to hear what you have to say, I'm going to be probably Evan Bush guy. Sounds a good sandwich. I'm definitely pickles. And mustard in my grilled cheese. I've never had a girl cheese with Brie, but I love ri- bread. And I respect backer dips, so okay, because Bobby, Kenny me, and you're probably not gonna be Theresa now. And I'm not gonna go meet either. So I'm Evan BUSTER back. Let us know sandwiches, none of these none of these are Greer a big. Guy was good. Under says this is also the best produce show on MLS channels agreed C N wanted to Email in though, and say, we do make mistakes, which is shocking mattdoyle wondered if a teenager is ever scored double digits in MLS before on Monday show, and he said, Diego goon as in twenty thirteen for the revs. I looked it up because he said, he's pretty sure, he's still a teenager. Eighteen years old. He's thirteen goal. I still remember seeing him score rebel arena, and thinking this guy's the truth. Like this guy is going to go a long long way. Some of the momentum has been, what is that a is that what you do when you watch a player and you say this guy is the truth? What do you mean? Did you not notice the action what I do give a little bit with, like a thrust? It was a this guy. True opened up the chest. Yeah. Guy James has been amazing. Good massages. I mean it's just that new flexibility that I had speaking of your personal life, Andrew, we have a fan, who emailed in Doug Everett from Washington, says your father, too young child. How do you explain slots on his act? The last few weeks to came after threatening new and choking Johnson, his actions are inexcusable. I don't care how many highlight reel goals. He scores a father of an eight year old soccer attic, Zlatan, self centered attitude and violent conduct. I mean the one and we won't watch in our houses, the LA galaxy hope the discipline committee agrees in nobody has to watch him for at least two matches. We don't know yet. What's going on through this committee? Those decisions have come out, but as we've seen in previous instances with things like this, where there are peels. Sometimes there's backchannel stuff going on. And we'll see what happens was lot on. I think that he will probably be suspended, as you said, on instant replay Bobby, I think he should be. He choke, slam sunshine Johnson. It was pretty intentional to me as a father of a young child. I mean Cameron's. Yeah. He's a ball ball ball. There's a bone scream cool. It's a teaching moment. Like Zoltan and there are people in life who behave like this. And you can't go around pretending like it doesn't exist. You don't have to like it. I'm with Doug that he, he doesn't have to let you let his kid watch this. But you can't point to say that's not how we do it in our house. Don't treat people like that. And there's a lot on the flip side. Step back and says be successful. I'm successful. I know the game. I am shown Johnson said a clever boy and get away with this stuff all the time. This is what Jack's me up. This is what gets me motivated. You can disagree about the right way to play the game. But I don't think it's set in stone universal this is moral this is ethical, this is not in the sense, saw Tun did something I think he should be suspended that will be as punishment. That's a good teaching moment for your kid. And if you don't want to watch him don't do it. All right. Moving on last one we promise Mike Molinaro, we'd give him a little bit for his Rapids fan. Get yourself on a couch. Can you help Wayne what looks like four hour Rapids? We also had another Rapids fan who pleads burgundy say, who do you see as a coach for them? So give us a little bit. What do you see in the future when you look into your ball type romo's was thrown as possible name, you spoke to tab, we kind of tease that gave us a bit opportunity go download the episode that interview from Bobby worship about the twenties with tab was really good. Bobby crystal ball, time Rapids. I think tab will get the job. I always prized at this point if he didn't get the job, unless there's a materiel Maeda out there who's gonna pop in at the last second. I mean if you look at resumes, if you look at what you think the Colorado, Colorado, Rapids one, which is developing young talent. But also bringing in some higher price names, that seems to fit what Tab Ramos can do. But yet multiple names come off the books after this year. I do think that they continue to get cold Bassett's sev- Anderson, count Akasa. They have that nice young core four or five players. And then they add the three three new DP's come into next year. That would change a club new coach. Big spin on the decide it's hard to details. But there's reason for optimism like you should not feel down about the long-term view of the Colorado Rapids. They had a bad three years. I made some bad signings. They're coming off the books and it's a whole new time. All right. That's it from us. Big thanks to Bruce Arena for calling the show his era in New England begins right now. Big thanks. You guys for jumping off a plane coming here doing extra time for Gus Bobby warshaw. I'm Andrew, we will see on Monday, everybody.

Though for that classic father move where we took a break before he leaves. Mike WHO's screaming? Why are you screaming this house? Charlie is bothering techniques are interesting and I've stolen some of the one where there's a fake boogeyman outside. But should I need? It went away. Just MR BOOTS IS MR boots. Made an appearance their teams boots and also I have been key boroughs. That's the guy he's walking back. Who's the five aside for Boogeyman? That Charlie's terrifies kid with. We'll do that on a later. Episode or maybe in the mail bag big S for you today Marcelo Balboa rapids legend and just have to Dave. I saw you back away from the camera and you know just come a little closer as we can see your face when shall be. Joseph won't be here with us. His Internet just wasn't work. He's at some swanky cabinet in the middle of nowhere in New England and he's been in adding matic existence his entire career especially me trying to follow him so it actually just fed into his are as a human being was that he just. He said he'd come tried to but then it was like now be back in Boston later. Tantalus with the grapes for you just like just out of reach all this. It almost makes it better though when you finally get. I was going to say you're craving even more I was I talked to showery. He says he still wants to come on. He wants to talk about the old days and what he's doing now with Grenada and you saw so better. Be Ready to break. I have my full roster for Grenada thoughts position. Changes in formation. Are Back last really. Good right centreback clean on the ball controls the game so I'm ready to NATO whenever? Yeah we got that. That's a two hour podcasts. We may not put that. We might just pour some drinks and just chat with Charles. Shorey on our own someday Yes New England. Colorado coming into their Mount Rushmore. We're almost done just this week left. Sporting Kansas City in Minnesota to come we have Preki. We've asked four for Kansas City which should be dubbed storytime with him. That means there's nobody better to talk about the loons that Miguel even though he's not there anymore One thing before we get started and this is because I've started either torturing myself actually I don't know it kind of feels good to know what we're missing out on. I've been looking at the schedule for the first time. In about six weeks Miami Toronto would have been this weekend. Chicago L. AFC BOB. Routers returned to soldier field this weekend we would have HAD ORLANDO ATLANTA SANDS JOSEPH. But maybe with his trash talk via social media. Maybe the lions knocked off the five stops. Probably not probably not. What do you miss about the game right now? Guys what is the thing you know you saw that tweet. Probably that was like what the very specific thing like. Dig Straight down. Dave what are you missing? I mean a lot but the biggest one the biggest to would be from a work point of view one of the things that I love about what I do and I'm lucky is to cover the game kind of on a lot of different levels so we're talking. Mls every Monday. Thursday I'm researching US L. teams. In between that I'm doing the g. A COP. I'm doing nations league so just like learning about new players new places new clubs. What's going on around the world? I feel like I can do that. But it's hard when there's no endgame it's hard to get yourself motivated like. I'll just do random research and then have it in my brain for whenever I need it. So that's been difficult and the other is to go to a lot of games. I love going to games. Obviously the atmosphere everything but I get to walk around normally pre or post game concourse outside the stadium and talked to fans and you know they're memories. They love what they're mad about. What DOYLE COMPLAINT? They have what ran? India is easy theory about life. And it's not. There's a guy who rips we be to me. He's like he's jealous of your life almost shot up like what can you do about that guy to house all that? What about you? Doyle actually responded to the tweet I I miss it perfectly weighted through-ball like the just like that moment. Where it's you know Valderrama type pass like I miss that in particular but like on a kind of bigger picture it's like we've all watched a lot of soccer like there are a lot of things that surprise us on the field but sometimes there's a moment there's a player who who hits a pass that you did not see coming you. You had no idea that this was coming and it opens up a whole game and like those moments still give me goosebumps getting a little bit just talking about it and thinking about it when when that moment of genius that moment of Magic Happens. I miss that and then the US national team picture. This was a big year and it still could be a but like this is going to be a huge year with the Olympics. With a again you twenty qualifying more good young players in the system right now getting minutes for their teams and I miss watching those guys play because I was really really into wanting to see what the next step for so many of that was going to bait throw gimmie three players and mls when you think of perfectly weighted through ball that I love how it comes off his foot or how he just anticipates that run Ladera especially when he first got here right. 'cause he didn't need the last couple years he's had to do so much of everything else he hasn't hit as many threw balls but in the second half twenty sixteen especially he was just carbon teams off putting those through Puzzle Halo is one hundred percent that guy in like in he just has that sort of like the grace and that ability to be like. Oh He's moving so slowly he's not gonna hit that pass Suddenly like somebody is in the open field with the ball the ball on his foot. And then Jackson you'll and Jackson you'll like one touch out of nowhere just suddenly like the quakes are off to the races and I didn't know he was going to be. That kind of player in him was that was one of the fun things about last year watching him. Become that guy the Asian drink. Maybe listen to this this morning but could be different time for you. I love me some Jackson. You'll to I missed before we get yours Charlie. I miss that that moment. That you the seat when the announcers start talking a little more excitedly or there's a little bit more There's a little bit more minutes in whatever the move is maybe the build up got to the right position. Maybe the balls out. Why but everybody's thinking. Could this be a goal? Could this be a goal? And there's so many moments like that in a game and so if you goals you don't know how it's GonNa end up but that to me is what soccer is all about is the maybe will this be magic. Will it happen this time? Willey find that interest-based. We'll you get the shot off? Will the defender come in for the block? And I'm missing that sort of Crescendo. That build up whether it be slow or quick you know Turkey Taco or lightning-fast counterattack attack all these different ways. That we get to the same important that are all special and unique and I just. I missed that moment of starting to inch forward on my seat in that moment win the cross comes in in my brain says goal. And you don't know whether it's GonNa go in or not but your brain wants it so badly that it just it just kind of like. It's it's an utterance kind of from deep down if you're feeling of what could happen. I'm just missing that. What could happen? We're just getting that right now. In Old Games do it for me a little bit. Especially if I haven't seen him but even just looking at the schedule. Honestly Kinda got me jacked up. I could imagine this. Imagine what we would be talking about. I could I could sit here and like think about what Bob Bradley's halftime and postgame would have been like in Chicago. How they started him. Whether Miami was good if Orlando he'd be in Atlanta. This weekend we would lead the show at that right. Probably I mean how or we don't have that so I get a little symbol of that. He's my imagination this weekend but it honestly felt good Atlanta if we're Orlando ibn Atlanta this weekend we would've put them straight on the Mount Rushmore. Great Esteem of all whoever. They wore the straight up in their into stone. Charlotte would you miss them? We'll get into it. I miss coming into the broadcast booth right into the. You know the stadium my partner Brad Feldman setting up. You're setting up the booth getting everything right and then you see the fans trickling into their seats. Men Right when that national anthem hits everyone stands up. And it's about to be go time. That's what I miss that. Feeling Right. They like all you can hear the the fans getting ready the chance Mike all were about to. We're about to have a game today. That's that's what I feel. I'm like let's go. How about that moment early in the season when the lineups come out of the hour headline quieted them? Where we know for sure who is who is going to be like who's unformed who's injured. Who won a spot? What's the matchup going to be the next hour of chatter on twitter chatter in the office or in the group chat or wherever it is? We'd be stopping you. Give me give me back soccer traditions. Or whatever moments experiences is when a lineup comes out like Champions League mid week when everyone's watching one game World Cup. Whatever it is when the lineup comes out an hour before and like the whole world descends on that and like pick it apart and complains and does this and that and here who has an injury and didn't know about all that stuff. I love that part of soccer and I'd say week one I think the first game was. Dc Colorado was like the noon or one o'clock game before everything that gave me a lineup came into the lineup. Like it's refreshing twitter right at sixty minutes before again. I love that man. I missed just complaining about lineup graphics. Even stupid stuff like that. Look we got a while of course trying to. Piss me off by recycling tweeting and so they're like this was the lineup that day. It's like even four years later. You couldn't put it in a formation Batman very big side big side if you let us know what you're missing four one two zero six zero s extra-time soccer dot com. Of course the Games will not be back until the very very earliest Junaid. That remains the date. There has been an extension to the training moratorium. That's through may fifteenth. So that makes Junaid look like probably not gonNA happen because there will be a little bit of preseason here that takes us past two months that may fifteenth training moratorium because March Twelfth. Is that day that Thursday that we came in and mls shutdown just like basically everybody else in the US and around the world so still waiting still hoping hoping you guys bring well Chattanooga Blackman by the way before we go any further.

And neither neither of those clubs has a clear top five team of all time in. Mozambique singers thing. Coming Adam shots fired. Let's say interesting. Take doing so I think. I think you could argue that two thousand eighteen Atlanta were top five all time right with our top seven which which is top seven. Which one did we pick two thousand fourteen last year? I think we picked twenty fourteen as they were doing over. The course of these. Last Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey at their peak are in the conversation as best players like. They're not far off right. This is fun. This is going to be the fun we're going to have to cede that before we even do the match ups so has this step back.

Let's get to it New England revolution. You have some male. I think Dave to get US started to call. We have a fantastic email from Narciso Valencia. Who SAYS I hope you're well and save during the same youtube? Thanks for putting the show we do for you baby. I've been following since nineteen ninety-six. When I was eleven born and raised in New England live forty five minutes from foxborough. My revs Pantheon is below number. One Taylor number two shall read number. Three Steve Ralston and number four. Joe Max Moore coach. Steve Nichols is the two thousand five group. And then he's got plenty of honorable. Mentions in here if we need a little bit more brain food for you guys going along so get. Us started there. Yeah I have Joe Max Moore my list. I think I think we just start this. One with kind of a universal statement which is show retailer and Ralston in done. Anybody GonNA disagree with that. I mean in. Shell re you've got a guy who was an mls best eleven four times. Almost nobody's done that in this league. He has more than two hundred games of the club. Amir disagree with their three third automatic. You don't have Roulston as an auto no. I don't think he's not a real stop. It automatic I do not. I do not think I think Max is an automatic November. Long Matt Rees Automatic. Now anyone explain why you think that Charlie because educated avary. I've got more to go pick up in the revolutions best years. As as a club franchise are from two thousand and four. But it's really five six seven or their strongest years back to back to back appearances. Matt Reese was at his best in those During those years okay. Roulston Steve Ralston had a in two thousand five one goal in six assists and two thousand six six goals in five assists. Those are not big numbers. Now in two thousand and two he had nineteen assists. And most of those were Taylor he had one unbelievable season and he played. You're not you're not going to mention that. He had four goals and fourteen assists in in two thousand seven. Yeah Okay So. He had to unbelievable seasons to. I wouldn't say unbelievable but one unbelievable season one very good season. Okay regardless Matt Reese was phenomenal has was an. It's not only just on the field off the field. What he meant to the fans he had one of the best relationships with our fit the the main support groups here the midnight riders in the rebellion. So and you throw in the marathon. The marathon What he did for the Boston marathon what he helped how he was there. And what the impact. The Boston Marathon had not only in Boston New England the country. The world has to be number three. It's it's it's show Rian Taylor You can debate. Who's one in that? Because there they both were unbelievable and both are so impactful when it comes to the fan base the club. The performance both wanted to three. It's gotta be matterease. Four you can throw roulston keeps Joe Max Moore and it can only be those three for that fourth position. That's so I'm fine with Charlie here because I have Matt Rees Online and I. It's Charlie's point four time goalkeeper of the year runner-up in that span. Two time best. Eleven view all stars humanitarian of the Year award as Charlie said like and I think culturally to the fans and I spent a fair amount of time sitting in the sports section for the ravs little bit after his peak but being around those fans he holds all the things. Charlie said. I think that races on there. I also think Steve Ralston. Lock on there. That's your four. Jay is not in this conversation. We're talking about a guy who was arguably the best goalkeeper in the League. We're talking about a guy who's an assist king and now you're GONNA put in. Yeah longtime did things for the club after but that doesn't go on the same level as long jeopardy and top quality success that the other four. You're talking about the reason why I look. I I think your your mattress argument is a very good argument. Charlie I would say we all tell him of either leave Matt so after we like you know got the got the knighthood on Roulston because he has to be here. There's no doubt that he is here. Is what Taylor woman was saying. Was it mea new doyle on that remix it was the DC New England? One and Taylor was talking about how the guy who bridged the gap between the young kind of up and comers shall re Dempsey all that and the old grizzled vets and the guy that made it all come together and sort of made it okay for everybody to exist and be themselves in that locker room. Which Taylor is a very difficult with Steve Ralston? There's more than just the goals in this is what he represented the club. There's what he meant in the locker room. There's what he was able to do to get them all pulling in that same direction and her. We Know Steve. Nichol was not a super hands on sort of coach. No you had to have that leader with all those egos with that sort of disparity in personality. You had to Steve Ralston for the seem to be as good as they were. Steve Ralston is so good is so good guy. I never said he wasn't there great guy. He's not he's not one two or three. Okay I'll I'll accept that logic. That's all the Jacob Slavic from the area. Jay Heats gets a nod. I'll tell you that. He had long metal man loitering forty three games for the club. He represented the club. The Anna a relationship with a club right became a coach has nothing to do with it but he definitely deserves a shot because he was always respected on the way he approached the game just like I mean. The guy was crazy athlete basketball. Duke I mean how many guys can play at Duke when a Hermann Trophy on the soccer field and men's in the NCAA you be on the court right but be on a team like do with coaches Jetski. Props couldn't good enough props for being an athlete. But the way he competed didn't it wasn't the most skilled player but everyone respected him. Because you knew when you play against them. It was going to be helped because he he really gave you. Everything tackled was rough was physical would pound the ground. Is Fest like he's on the court but it was just fiery. He was one of those guys who made the locker room. He was one of the guys on the field that you respected. He gave you one hundred percent in. You need those guys to have success. He was one of those guys that didn't get a ton of credit because he wasn't the most skilled goals or assists but you needed players to have success just like the way he played the game. I would love to see him like you know back in the day. The checkup basketball. The Guy who like slaps the floor bringing the ball. Toil with your perspective. This you've Kinda sabotage and listen to arguments. I think Ralston's in automatic He he was the league leader in assists. Twice with the reds. He's among the all time. They're all time leaders in games played and all that he was a huge part of all four of those teams. That made it to you made it to. Mls Cop he was and he did it while people don't really remember this but he plays a wingback seaver Austin wasn't actually a wingback winger or really midfielder. But he ended up going touchline touchline for like eight straight years even to into his thirties and it was like e sacrificed for the team. He should not have been playing that position. They would have been a lot better off you know. He had a more sort of a purely attacking role or facilitating role because he played inside an eight as well but he didn't And the fact that he was able to do that and still be among the league leaders in assist and still delivering huge moments. Time and time again. I think Ralston's automatic I'm not sure reese is. He's probably there for me. Lee Wind deserves a mention Lee. Win was the best player on the team that made it in two thousand fourteen to mls copy was MVP. Finalists that year. He had another year where he was. Eleven goals fifteen assists yet at seven ten year even as things were sort of falling apart within that Organization for various reasons after that twenty four TNR on kept producing. Didn't end great You know which is not unusual for the revs from the Mike Burns. Gm era. But that's how it goes but leave win. I think he's second all time leading scorer and I think he's second all time leading assists for that team and he was. Mvp finalists slowly. Wind deserves a mention. I can't put him in there over Matt race though. I think it's those four guys I I think. It's Taylor showery Ralston and race now. Michael Parker says a shout here too but we did put him on. Atlanta's so I think that probably negates him because when he got there that's when they went on that run of three Straight Cup Finals. He was one of the missing pieces. Just throw some other names out there. Not Saying they should be in there. Your Joe Max Moore got the mention I think Joe Frenchie no. He captain them in some of those kind of hero. Yeah never get there. I throw it out there Clint Dempsey. Nobody said his name. I don't think he jumps into that top four but he's certainly has a massive place been if he wasn't in Seattle's we have to plan and another one who's playing the wrong physician era like the people who don't remember. Mls in the old days. Clint Dempsey came to the revs as a rookie and played as like a box to box midfielder or sometimes even as an offensive midfielder so different times at different times different play. Did you ch Charlie? Did you hit up showery and see who his forward? Yes and they were exactly who we thought they were. Nice legend but this is how how he worded it which I think is is great. So he's he said matterease Steve Ralston Intel along with myself. But if I had to pick a coach it's Michael Parkers. He said it's a lot harder than you think. As a former REV 'cause you leave Clint Dempsey who I think was the most talented player to ever wear the reds uniform tough? I'm honestly you know I'm honestly mourning the fact that shall reason that didn't work because I spent like an hour and a half last night. Just coming up with things that I wanted Ashaari about and we will make that happen at a different point we will get him on the show and do a story time so I think we're set with our four. Everybody feel good about that. No Lady Trees. No second guessing. You go shall we you go Taylor. Ego Roulston Ugo matterease. There's your Yup. What's the best team. Two thousand five for me why. They had a goal differential eighteen. They finished first in the Eastern Conference. You pick it can only be these teams two thousand and two five six seven or two thousand fourteen all model. It's those five teams that that's it right. And so of those five teams. The two thousand and five team was the best regular season team and they carried it into the final night. Think that's the one they. They should have one. They lost a Houston. I think in that one in five then walks they lost to L. A. on that Pondo. Romero okay yeah. So they had they had fifty five goals scored and they had a goal differential of eighteen eleven. Two and three at home for me. That's the best ribs team in history. Obviously I have a bias in twenty fourteen but that was a tale of two teams. I mean it was halfway through. Yeah Germain for that. Final third of the season we were flying or the most dynamic teams. You could probably play on a definitely probably the most dynamic team but two thousand five. That's that's the team has to be a team of Clint Dempsey in it I would say that's that's the teen. Here's this lineup. For you matt. Recent goal Jay heaps Parker is Frenchie no Riley on that back line James Riley Dempsey Daniel Hernandez and there shall be an Roulston the midfield and then Newnan Taylor twelve and Pat Noonan made. It doesn't get enough love but he had some really really strong years. There was a big reason why they were so good. And then your bench you have on the bench. Has It can sail on the bench Doormen is on this bench so I just didn't happen for him in this final any final. That was the second straight one against the galaxy. That just was so painful. Two thousand two of course was was released. And then one hundred seventh minute panel Ramirez again to just Gut Punches. For the reds. I I agree. I think it's two thousand five because I'm with Charlie in that you need to have Dempsey there. And that was the best regular season team in Osimo for remembering no way no way we really so I understand Taylor said it was. Oh seven two weeks would we did NOJEIM. We did that. Remix Taylor said two thousand. Seven was probably the best team because amateur. You talk by now. Charlie timeout yeah because we did for the Galaxy we said was twenty fourteen even though it may not have been the best roster because it was the best group that the best soccer and I agree with I was trying to make sure my memory is right in backed up and Taylor backed up. That seven was probably the best group and you also when you mention names. Because we've done this this whole time. You have to remember who Jeff Lorettes was from five to seven Andy. Dorman was from. Oh five seven. These were players that changed their roles change their quality which changed the group. I know it's not a superstar but Wells Thompson in. Oh seven was a big part of what they did offensively and my the legendary John Obviously Shadow warriors and it was also the best final. Maybe I didn't know if that was dating my memory of the quality of that game but I I put a vote in for seven Taylor backs output among twenty four teams ahead of seven five fourteen. Two Thousand six seven. Oh two there's there's only one reason came on the side. It's because connor. Smith started that Most Cup John and that ball from kind of Smith to Tailor. Our that was no that was actually the sickle kind of Smith with an on the run inch. Perfect through ball to talented. Some big moments loved Smith those early once every eight game. He was huge when he was on. He just made people look like they were statues. It was it was incredible. Got like going when he looked like he was saying. I mean. Just shoot up the ground. Yeah all right. How do we come to? How do we come to an agreement here? I mean you had a Gambian you twenty saw yes. Sending Asi L. Just showing up at a U Twenty World Cup and was like I'll sign these doing I remember when those guys got signed and they stuck around for a long time to the twin about this. Yeah talking about Clint Dempsey. We're talking about the twin brothers named Zanny Santa Fe. I'm here I'm I'm half Gambians. All my brothers all of them by the way that was I was thinking about making that a trivia question but now I know that I that was too close to home for Charlie Musalia see but Wednesday night extra time Trivia night in Los Instagram. Live some weight. You know why they call them. Kenny Nasi don't all right. Well we'll do that for another trigger that anymore. By that Nicotine Palmera came up with all these nicknames. For can you remember Kelly? Do Bay right for say do be do be doing commercial. They'd come up with all these things and the name stuck with most of these players. I feel I feel for all the young players had to go through that locker room. Because it was like a gauntlet you had you know. Some of the most respected experienced players of all time in History and coaching staff. Right all top top and you gotta trying go through as a young player whether it's in training or professional games where if you are at a certain level because the expectations were super high. You're talking about one of the most successful runs for nmls Mls team from two thousand four to two thousand seven just competitors so the best players and expectations for a rookie to come into that locker room and just perform on an everyday level. If you were offered by an inch they were GonNa let you know they were going to let you know Taylor told us. They were a whole. So that's what he said pretty much talk about it though is that they drafted so well you know like they gave the rookies a lot of a lot of trouble but they drafted showery and I know he came after a year. They drafted Clint. They drafted Parker's they drafted Reynolds. Like that's pretty good drafting right there. The NEWNAN as well. Look I feel like I should defer to Taylor but I tell Taylor he's wrong all the time two thousand five that steam. Charlie's got it right. I'm fine with that this to you. Charlie knows better than I do. In that sense. That was the year before I really got an emmy last so I missed that team live. Can we real quick have Charlie Gut gave us a pitch for twenty fourteen? Twenty Fourteen Jermaine Jones anti the end product so Germain Jones comes into a team where Lebron is probably the most skilled American player that I've played with E. could eat whatever he puts his mind to do. He's he's so skilled as I. Touch is awareness. One one player that caught the eye of PSV at a time where they're playing Champions League and they're competing for the trophy gusts hitting said is guy as gut something special for young American kid. That is rare. He's one of the best players ever played with skill skill. Wise and then Teal Bunbury who who redefined himself as a winger in Lhasa was always a number nine Jay heaps put him on the wing and he thrived. He understood okay. This is how I'm going to have success with this team. And then you had Kellyn row in India for goodness both swing off. On the left both capable players both skilled understand. The game could affect the game in different ways. And that's why we had depth. We had two players. They're up top and my my goal was just hold up the ball start the press and then get on the. Nfl stretched defenses. And when I would make the all those run behind I was creating so much space for Lee Underneath Germain could come underneath. And then Scott Caldwell was the perfect player for balance. He provided that that stability in the midfield because Germain eager go anywhere anywhere from box to box end line to end line and Lee was was more attacking mind and so you typically like to push underneath meetings. Sometimes I'd look in. He's level with me. Scott was the player that gave us balance. He would pick up the loose balls. He was incredible at winning the second ball and getting it off his foot being option tyranny. One of the best left backs in the league. When it comes to service he could. He could put the ball wherever he wanted except pieces. Free KICKS CORNER KICKS. One of the best left. What's Ivan replayed with centre-back Josie Galvez Torque twenty thirteen? I must have dinner the year. You can lock you down. You understood the game while but he was. He was an athlete. Where those guys all men you don't WanNa mess with him. When he hits you feel it and then beside him was. Aj source who probably is the most under appreciated centre-back that I've ever played with covered ground. Well great technique very under appreciated and a great locker room guy so he's a guy that everyone looked up to didn't speak much but when he did speak. Everyone paid attention. Because it was usually men gallison up because what he's saying is right and then right back Andrew Farrell is. I think it was a second year so we had some experience under his belt. Fast could get down the line but you knew he could. He could catch. Plays plays broke down teams. Got Him behind us. He had that recovery speed. And then you had Kevin Allston who was probably the best one B. One defender. I played with so you could swift Swap him in with Christine could push Chris up to left left forward. And then you had car coming Austin so you are a little bit more defensive on the left side which we did against. New York rebelled to shutdown Lloyd. Sam so that revs Demon Bobby Shuttleworth in goal. Who's is is stable as they come as dependent and you could you could put him across the board of any. Mls cokie as just a solid guy. He's not Gonna. Love is not going to be a world beater but as far as making solid saves that you need to stay in the Games. That was Bobby Shuttleworth. Fantastic good locker room guy and we just had a belief that we could step on the field win any game. It was one of those feelings. We we are all excited. Come to training because we had great banter locker room but when we played teams were afraid of us because we could counter better than anybody and then we also could play in the Attacking half key possession and put on their. He'll so we could we could do. We could play any way the game kind of Demanded so it was. One of those things were flexible. We had experienced guys. We had youth and we had depth. Twenty four team was a very strong team. We just ran against this. La Galaxy team. That was happen to be also a very strong team with Robbie. Keane Lending Landon Donovan's last season. But that was quoted Agency those but that was a team that that obviously you know knocked off one of the best Seattle the probably the best Seattle sounders team in history talent experience the whole Shebang. I feel like when I look back at Ramstein twenty fourteen. That should be a team. That's holding up in Moscow. The question skilled because that. Oh Five Team. They had years to come together. You guys had all kind of faded away. Are we good with two thousand five? Okay I just wanted to try to run through. Because that from depth point of view an quality point of view of the Nice things when you talk about like tyranny specialists guys who did one job guys doing another job. It was a good team. So we have our Mount Rushmore. Unfortunately they didn't have a great number nine if they had like Taylor word man do that on another level. Adam Chris. I could've done. We go all right enough about the New England revolution it's time to Colorado rapids. Nobody better to do it. With than Marcelo. Balboa one hundred and fifty one games played for the club from ninety six to two thousand one you know the US national team from the national soccer hall of Fame Ballot Marcel. Thanks for joining us. An extra time meant. Thanks for having me. I think this is my first time. I'm excited Constru- believe this is the first time I can guarantee this. He was on extratime. Live Guy Hung out with you. I think at FC Dallas Univision as always riding doing working for every every language. Just enjoy my life man enjoying my job. That's so we're going. This will be the first time we'll try to pull as much out of you and we can about the rapids and other. I have to ask you though ninety two. Ap So Colorado Foxes. This is a team that comes up from a lot of different angles when I do research about the history of the game in the US because there were so many on. That team had big careers yourself. Included Robin Frazier. Tom Soehn Chat Tech Mark. Dodd Kim Rob. People may not know that name but a Wichita Wings Fan like me does give the MVP the League to. And I don't even know who Deanna is. Tell me about the L. Tell me about this Fox team. That won the treble. It was it was a bunch of players who are ready to go to. Mls The this is the only place we had to play. There was only amateur leagues. I the plan and I went. Listen I've from the nomads? Before when I was in college I played for the nomads. I played for the San Francisco. Bay Blackhawks where we won championships there but This team they were missing few pieces and then in the ninety two season they basically came up to me as we played them in. So you interested in coming to here. We got this. We're trying to build all these wonderful things and I'm like I mean it sounded like a good challenge. I knew Robert at newmark died. I knew a lot of players already with the Fox's so it was an easy to come over what was sorry Prix Imola. What was it like that league? Well listen we played against everybody. Albany remember playing Jean Harbor. I remember the tricky. I remember a lot of these guys that we played with Tampa Bay. There was just a lot of the players. Didn't have anywhere to play. We had this kind of lull between ninety and ninety. We didn't some of US didn't go. We didn't do well but it was a surprise that we made the ninety World Cup so nobody really was taken. Chances are except for a few a few player so the most of us had to play in domestic leagues which were amateur slash semi-pros throw at the time. So that's why we that's why we made a living. You mentioned there are few guys did go overseas obviously Peter Vermes and other guys. Did you obviously know Internet? You can't just reach out to people in Video Chan to figure out where to go. Did you think about it? Like what was the lifestyle for guys who were around the national team at that time with Emma last to say am I gonNA play here or overseas? We all wanted to. The problem is is who's GONNA open a door in the nineties. Think about it. It was Peter Over Tab. It was over there John Hearts but who is really going to open a door. We didn't really we surprise people in the Ninety World Cup. That's it people looked into. They didn't get killed by Italy so that was like the big thing. Nobody's just be an honest. Just being honest so no one really opened the door so for us was making a living making between five hundred thousand dollars a game. They gave you an apartment. I remember we had so much time on our hands at David. Dirt was our coach. Here he caught me. Rollerblading rollerblade down down the street. Because I was part of the exercise. We had nothing to do. So we were waiting. We were waiting. We were begging for the star here. We are begging to get a chance to go to Europe South America Mexico to at least be able to play at the level that we that we could you had ninety four and then you go to Leone and you get to the rapids. Walk me through sort of that professionalization in your life as you get down to Mexico and then you get assigned to Colorado. I always curious about the stories of how guys in ninety six got certain teams because there was a lot of sort of back railing Take back step. I was in Olympiakos in Greece. I just finished going over there trying out. I literally landed. Watch the practice and as we're watching practice the week before Olympiakos lost so all of a sudden you hear boo boo and everybody kind of starts giggling. And we're like I'm like okay. What's going on. The fans were throwing rocks over the fence because there were so upset at the players for losing the week before so I went building Yoccoz. I played there. We went to play. Redstar started played about seventy minutes after the game coach. Offer me a contract so I wasn't going to go to Mexico. Mexico was in the plans and then I believe it was the center forward from Nigeria. Ninety four and I think it was. I'm a catchy. I think yeah and he was fantastic. The problem was he didn't WanNA play anymore in Greece. But he didn't want to give up his contract so sat in. Yuccas for about two weeks and finally senior glide calls me and says hey there's a team in Mexico that want units but you gotta unlike Racan equivalent. I take that back boy blah. Sound like great. I go to Mexico. I try out there for two days. They WANNA sign me. The money wasn't anywhere near what we wanted. So we're getting ready to leave and I swear to you if we believe in the hotel and burning by to say Hello Bora. It's like. Yeah like he goes. You got any interest in staying. I'm like of course I do. He goes on is looking for a center back to route. Jetties NOT GONNA play for the looking for centreback. I'm like okay hopped on a plane went. They're trained that next day. I signed I signed with Layla. It was it was a protestant. It was a process when we were playing. It wasn't like hey. He played in the World Cup. Let's take him. It's like okay. Can you mix in with these guys and let me be honest with you? My first day at practice there was another Mexican centreback. He came up and he two footed me with studs written my shoe open. He nailed me to prove his point. That I'm here. This is my job. If you want it come get it. You guys kind of no Ma'am kind of a calm relaxed guy. I lit him up five minutes later. Two foot in the air stood over the top of him and said. I'm not going anywhere in Spanish. I told Joe Make Michael and he just lay there so you had you then. It was just yeah. Let's say you have. You had to prove yourself back then in ninety four listen we had a great World Cup but it was still. We're still Americans. You know what I mean so I had no problem I let him up and I got the respect and the important thing was. I got the respect of the coach. I got the respect of the other centrebacks but I got the captain data and if you guys remember the guy that got the red card in Argentina Ninety Salty. They came to my side and like okay. This is really wants to be here. So that kind of brought everybody listen we. We were not friends at any point with this guy because he got he got moved on next year. But listen I never guys going to back down. You WanNa come after me if I if you don't break my leg I'm coming after you. Soggy dog man. Those Clinton flying then in ninety six year with the rapids was that A. Hey this was a Fox's Guy. He has a connection to the community. Why did you end up in Colorado? Ask Phil answer to my friend. Inland Plains to kneel come K. and and this was hilarious. Go to his hotel. Were sitting there. He picks up the hotel phone. He's I have someone that wants to talk to you. I'm like Great Mike Under listen. We didn't have the sense factor. And there's no way I was going to Google somebody in two seconds he's like fill and you want to talk to. You. I'm like okay. I turned around. I was like okay. Who's philanthropy seriously at the time? You know you're in Mexico you're you're integrated Mexican league in what's going on there. It was the owner of the rapids. So he proceeds. We have a little conversation and says hey Phil Wanted Utah Marcello where he told me and he says okay. He says listen. He goes the only way I'm going to have a team in. Colorado is the guy who did the funny overhead kick plays on my team so winning owner didn't mine didn't say. Hey Marcella guided the over funny overhead kick. I want my team. Listen I was having a great time in Mexico. I was getting ready to rumors. Were flying that I'm going to get sold a cruiser soule but let's be honest man Since I started playing in the ESL in college the dream was always to play in. The United States in help built this week so we all sacrifice Coulda gone easier. Could've gone in played for cruiser sold for the next four five years but we knew the dream that we all had was. Start this league here. And we knew we wouldn't be here when it was a hugely successful as players but we wanted to make sure we laid the groundwork we wanted to lay. That Foundation without any cracks always has little cracks but we wanted to be a part of something big and twenty-five years later man. I can sit here and tell you that We played a small part on it. But I'm so proud to have been a part of this twenty five years. We all know the famous names from ninety four and obviously the famous but you say we who was like how much in touch you with the other national team guys as Melissa's coming onboard. How we of a group was it between yourself and and Peter and Taban and hearts and whoever else what I say we I guess I say we as I include everybody everybody that decided to come to the to the United States in help this league out from from Beckham to be vulgar. Rama could have gone. Some integrate could have gone somewhere else. Marino coulda gone somewhere else. You know what I'm saying and you look at guys like Vanco could've gone some strange Kafka gone somewhere else so when I say we I put us all small community and We've all done a on our part to make this league succeed but back then I think once tab because we were Tabas at Mike sobers whereas Puma and I was at Leyland and courtesy Alpha was was in and out of Laon too and when we heard tab signed. We're like okay. You know what I mean everybody. I guess we're all waiting to see who was going to be the first guy and then if it was going to steamroll a little bit who else would sign next lexi sign. This guy signed so once you saw that everybody was serious. Not just talking. You know some guys. Yeah Yeah I'M GONNA sign. They don't everybody that said they were going to sign. Was coming back Tab meal everybody so at that point it made it much and made it easy for me when I says I want an owner says I want to do. The does the overhead kick. How do you say no? And I've lived here playing for the Fox's I knew I loved it. It was going to be a place that that was home for me as you can see with the long hair and the beard. I belong in the mountain so good I mean I have I. That's probably the best decision. I Made Career Wise Marcelo. It's such a different era and you talk about responsibility and sort of the structures in place in the. Us Mule sacrificed to do this. How how much of a knowledge financially or whatever else you know where you were comfortable at that time and just building something scratches hard how much those conversations are being had or internally are you thinking man I is this worth it or was it just immediately we know. And how did you know what was inside? You said I know. We all make sacrifices. Everybody here you guys all four made sacrifices for this league to do what you love to do The sacrifice was okay. Do I do I wait a year and see what the League is. GonNa be like and do I go play in the solar right. Stay at Laon for another year and see how it goes at initial year or do you take a chance and try to be a part of something special. Try to be a part. That's going to make something special in different in the United States and I think that It was an easy decision. You know what I mean because again playing in ninety four just made you realize what the potential of what soccer could be in this country and and we all wanted to be part of some specialists and maybe people don't remember us in fifty years from now. That's that wasn't the point of all of this. The point was to get something in line. Something was going to be here for a long time. It's GonNa be something that I can take my grandkids to that. I can take my sons to. We can have a blast. We can watch it and I can sit on my damn couch at eight years old and say you know what I'm frigging proud? I helped start this lag. Even though maybe people don't remember and that's not the point the point is we help. Start something big. That's GONNA open up a lot of jobs a lot of opportunities in it's GonNa put us on the map of soccer in Lee and I think we're getting a little by little we'RE AMERICANS. We want it done now. But it's getting there the right way getting their little by little so you're you're an icon you know especially to me as a kid man. You are one of the one of the players who signed my first ever autographed soccer by Nineteen Ninety seven when you guys played here Mexico. What was it like traveling back then? In the first couple of days were score is like the road trips because the players the players today don't know the struggle so let us let us hear some of those details. What was it like try? You know I had a little bit of this conversation with Pam Perkins. Today we were talking and We I was telling about we went and played. This is just national teams. To start with. We would go play in Morocco. And we're GONNA play their first of all. We all have middle seats so imagine going to Morocco in middle seats so then some of us are laying on the ground in the aisle sleeping as one guy would sleep on on that. Some three chairs one would sleep on the floor with a blanket. It was it was not easy. It was not easy but we didn't care. Listen we played in a World Cup for for fifteen thousand dollars and we laughed. We laughed because I thought they're gonNA pay me to play in a World Cup. I'll pay them. I repeat US soccer to raid that team and played in a World Cup. They're paying us so we're like right. Mls MLS was like okay. Boys we have a seven o'clock game this this this will see you guys at four thirty in the morning like what on the flight leaves at six o'clock in the morning so it was the cheapest flight the earliest flight we would hop on it and we were gone so it was sometimes. If you play early enough you caught that eleven o'clock flight that red eye home but it was not the only good thing is we got those little tiny meals back in the piece of bread and butter you can smear anywhere kind of thing but we it was again. Listen I think we were just happy to to. It was a big let me take. It was a big transition because in Mexico. We bust everywhere. These beautiful buses. We chartered a flight. When we'd go to a longer distance to go play Veracruz in those kinds of things but it was different. You know I got used to Mexico. We'd all be concentrated in the hotel the night before and the doctor. You wouldn't leave your room. You'd go to dinner go back. The doctor would go to room to room to room to check on players treatment. If you needed an injection or if you needed a shot off when we come back here to Colorado and you know when you walked out and you've got a double wide trailer and that's your your locker room. The next one was the shower or put it. Put it back into perspective. How hard we were going to have to work to help this league. Get to where we thought it was. It would be respected around the world our those first couple of years in Colorado play at Mile High Ninety six. We don't have to talk about the record from ninety six ninety seven. You're making a cup run. Those first couple of years like I got it was it was the first year was difficult in and the reason was because the style of play with play. If you watch this plan they just replayed our very first home game. We were very direct. Put it this way. You had Denis Hamlett in yet IAN BUTTERWORTH TO CENTREBACKS K. And we played four in the middle. So you're next to they're supposed to be creative were who centreback and Balboa who is the midfielder's so it was long ball or mean treat had a run pass gene harbor in Shaun Bartlett on flicked it that is our strategy so it was very difficult coming from a from a more technical soccer you knock into around you know what. I mean to boom run run so it was a was a hard year because it started off well and little by little people were not overly thrilled with the soccer. Where you're playing ninety seven you know what? I think we were just pissed. We were just pissed off towards the end of the year. No one gave us any credit. We saw some of the things that That Kansas City put up in the locker rooms when they were playing us. If you look if you go back to the last two games we played against Kansas City. We lost I had a horrible game was awful and And we got into it. You know it was. It was something that almost needed to happen. Mood started mumbling a little bit to rene and I jumped around instead. Be more specific. If you're going to get mad at somebody were min up. I'm like tell us tell us we suck at it. I'm okay with that. But it was everything was it was very generic. We needed to no no no. No I saw said Marcelo suck today. I'm a big boy so it kind of blew up at dinner and this was towards the end of the season and again we're going from Kansas City Denver then San Jose to play one more game. Some which has another team meeting and we go out it again and we finally got men where we talk about it later. We took care of it but ever since that happened. That whole thing we were like. Let's just let's just do it. Let's just go out run our if we don't make it we don't make let's go out at least fight and scratch and being so we played pissed. If you watch US play we ran and we fight and we didn't leave any by. We had a stranglehold on every team. We played we let him breathe and then Henderson with fantastic bicycle kick Kansas City. Not Practicing a day or two before they played us because they thought it was going to be. An easy game will congratulations. We made a final and unfortunately we ran into the machine at home. Take me through ninety seven though the final because it's DC in DC. Now we have home L. S. CUPS. But you didn't wile and the atmosphere like. I've watched that game multiple times and I would like to know from ninety four World Cup experience that like the atmosphere. What like what that day was like one? I'm still pissed. We played at their place. You know what I mean. We were the underdogs we should've played in Colorado. No you go back to that team and They're on national. Tv players be Bolivia the US nationally him up and coming players. Like Eddie Pope. Tony Sanneh what they had a roster and a half. We were happy to be there. I'M NOT GONNA lie. We were running we were. We had our equipment manager and somebody else running a race the day before the game. I think we were just so shot of that. We were I think. Mls wishaw everybody was like okay. Dc's Blaine who you know what I mean. So we had a good team there were there was no doubt but it was a it was reality. You're playing DC at home. We were more worried about the blizzard at home. Our family's couldn't make the game Manley's made the game. After once. They blew the whistle. Our families got to the stadium because they couldn't get there because of the blizzard in Colorado. So there were so many distractions for us that we hung in there. We hung in there but again it was. Dc At home in the rain and we just again just couldn't find that Pablo gets her early. He gets taken out of the game. So it's just a lot of the the better team. There's no doubt about it but to have played in that stadium with their fans Even we played with national teams. La Barra. There was just spectacular. Every time you look over and you see him bouncing you see the whole bleeds. You're up and down there e minutes and it's not what you live and breathe. Charlie's been there. He knows what it is. It is at that time and that was the place I mean. The crowd really honored Charleena big moment his life as well. I'm looking ahead here. And we're GONNA get the The Mount Rushmore going Marcel. You're just GONNA go right up there. We're not going to give you a choice here. You straight up my man but it's so weird because I'm doing the research that you were with the metrostars for like literally five minutes. How and why? How and why you know. Let me let me let me put this in in in ice way away there but there were there were. There was a draft. Miami was going away. They were looking to find players. I had surgery. The surgery didn't go. Well the doctor that did my meniscus tear gave me a bone bruise so I was coming back from that and the drafts going on. I'm in the locker room and the raps going on this is Colorado just made a trade. I looked over and I said that traded me. And they're like no no no I go yes. That mother traded me. I knew as soon as I said it. I go that he traded and ten minutes later. I get a phone call You've been traded to New York. I'm like you've gotta be kidding me so I got traded. They forgot to inform. The coach at the time forgot to inform that had surgery. The surgery did not go well. I was injured. I wasn't ready to play all those little details. Got Left out of the Hayward Trading Marcello. He's good to go so you know what I mean so I got there. It was okay I got there. The doctor looked at the surgery. And he's like what did he do can then he showed me? The meniscus tear you had is still in the same spot he some. Un and fix something completely different so he basically ended my career. I went. I tried to play in every day. Got Worse and worse. I had a bone bruise at had just enough of a little nick. They got bigger and bigger. I got to a point where they put me on crutches for almost two months so that piece of the bone would heal itself so if I would have kept on trying to plant snapped it and I could have ruined the knee. I would have been hobbling so at the end of the year. I got healthy enough that I think we played New England and I got to play like literally thirteen. I felt so bad I felt so bad because we're not giving myself to a team. I give everything I have and I couldn't give I couldn't give the metrostars anything because I went in injured and just couldn't thought you know you get those feelings in a career you just. That was probably one of the worst feeling I've ever had fourteen because I just felt like I let that whole team down the fans organization. Everybody off a off a coach. Who was lying to the other teams that I was okay and I was ready to go. Should mean yeah so it was it. Was it hurt my heart because I just sat around? CouldN'T DO ANYTHING TO HELP TAB. Paid key jolly all those guys were there so I just it was. It was a rough year. Take us back to the club. We're talking about your associated with the Colorado rapids. You're there mile high. We mentioned it. They've opened their own stadium. Now over the last twenty five years. How have you seen the club change and for people who aren't from Colorado? What is the club mean to the city to the region obligation? It's a it's a club that started off slow It little by little. We've had problem with us as we've never been consistent. I think writing Charlie. I think you guys have done enough. Mls that I'm not throwing anything out there not beating my team. We just never been consistent. We haven't been that perennial playoff team. That just makes the playoffs. Five six seven years in a row. We make it a year two years. We make it two years. We don't so consistency. I think it has been the problem that we've had but But people you know I love it. I love it because it's I hope I was the first part Chris Henderson regularly. We helped start this team into where we were in old mile high to Dick's sporting goods park to sponsorship people. Talking about it You know it's not la. It's not a huge market. We're not when we don't pretend to be a layer Chicago New York but I think that we've gotten it right over the last year. I think we started off this year off. Well with two wins you see the speed we have. I think it's finally. It's that balance. We finally found that balance between young guys older style. Robin wants to play. That's almost a running gun old late your style. We'RE GONNA GO AT teams. We're going to smell them so much pace so but it means listening means everything here because the fact that there is nothing to Caribous was really at the Fox. Says we're a really small team. We were little part of it. Wherever you go now. You'll see a kid in Colorado somewhere on a soccer field. You'll see somebody wearing one of these yellow shirts or the white shirt or the burgundy shirt they even have the green ones that are out there. So it's like I said it's been a bumpy road but I think it's finally starting to for us. It's finally starting to level out by the Yellow Jersey one of my favorites the colors of the state flag. Let's talk about some of those old legends. You mentioned his name Chris Anderson. I always think that people who started with this league like post Beckham or even more recently. There's so many of those. We don't do a good enough job of reminding them how good the guys in the past right. Now Chris Anderson's just the guy who helps sign players for the San is one of the best executives in the league. But he's he is on the Mount Rushmore for meat for me for the rapids. Do you agree. You know it and Iran. You guys said we were going to do this. I went back and kind of looked at a little bit of the history. And I keep going back and I'm like we've had some pretty cool AINSI. You forget about Terry. Cooke one of the players in assists beaver Valdarrama Or Dely Valdes. We've had Peter Vermes Matt Mitcham. Steve trittschuh Marcus Hanuman. Tim Howard so I I guess I didn't know what the what the prerequisite was of getting on the saying but I have my boys. Fourteen boys right now are doing. I like them to know the history of where they represent and they're fourteen years old they're gonNa Represent Their club so I've had him go back. They can't do current player player so they've gone back in history and I've got guys that have done things on on a Mac Moscow. Chris Henderson they're doing. They're doing their homework on history. So this is this has been the fun part but I listen. I I tend to agree. I think Henderson everything. He's done national team. What he's meant to this team. I think it's one hundred seventy eight or one hundred somewhere in there. Something Games I agree I think he's probably if you look at it. The People Forget about him. I think he belongs. Her told me about him as a player. So people out there know gotta hated him because we would come back from preseason K. And we would go run to back then. I don't know if you guys remember this. We'd have to do the the Cooper test. Two Miles in twelve minutes chai exact. Listen I made a one time one. Time is a coach. Lettuce wear headsets. And I put on us and I literally had a dive across the line person or negation. He ran ten minute. He ran in ten minutes. He's afraid he's a freak of nature of the way he listen take away. We know he's technical. You Cross bright left foot. He ran but his work rate was unmarked. I I didn't know anybody at that time. That could run like she did and still smile at the end of the game. I did it one game and I think I pulled my hamstring in the mix. I couldn't do it but he did it with a smile on his face and he just took care of himself but his stamina was ridiculous and then with the speed of the double step over and he'd take you inside crosser one quick step that left in cross just the end people forget about those kind of players but what a what a fantastic player you us. I gotta go ahead. I was saying what's the rest of the Mount Rushmore but I think we already limited to one that the it's not even it's automatic. It's not even a question so we've got yourself in Chris and then feels fairly safe to say Pablo I been. I've been looking at the comments and it's been a toss up because they said Connor Casey Pablo Myself. And they're having a hard time with the fourth one because it was drew more Was Chris Henderson is it was it. Was Paul Bravo. There was repeated. That's the fourth one has been the biggest debate. But you guys just killed it. You guys agreed Henderson. So you tell me. Yeah I mean look I think Pablo has to be there and what a blessing to the rapids of a couple Argentine flavor yeah team so Pablo got to be there for what he did as a player certainly and then the coaching stuff is just a different sort of beastie might even be the coach also coach of this team but then it gets tough cause connors. The all time leading score drew or is among the most decorated players in this league. History has an up and coming which makes makes a massive difference in just saying that. It's a tough one because there there's been a lot of quality players and then forget. Listen I'm forgetting vicinity Sanchez. I'm forgetting I'm forgetting it's quality like tim how you could throw Tim Howard in all these players that quality it's overall it's everything it's it's impact on the field. Maybe Young Chevy to keep your hands like the fans. It's everything four guys that you look at Colorado rapids like that is the definition of Colorado. That's who people think of when you think of Colorado rap yeah so Pablo. That's a tough question because everybody looks at different every. Listen this people out there that hate me. There's people that love me just say. Hey Charlie they love Charlie the way play. It's just reality. I agree I think Pablo I I I. I still think conor Casey for what he has done in everything you know what I mean. He went from the coach Assistant. Coach took over the team saw again. I think it comes down to like it like I said Connor Casey. You guys said me. Pablo and then the last one. It's the last one it's Chris. Anderson drew more people Valderrama there. There's a lot of guys that have been really really liked. It just depends on you know what I mean. I'm always a fan of going back and appreciating what? A guy like Chris Henderson did because I think guys like that. We're not the big stars they were. They were the hard workers. They're good players. There were national team players. But when you talk about the rapids it was revealed around you know what I'm saying. The CINTAS Sanchez. It was those players but Chris. Without Chris. I don't think we would have done half the things we done. Because he was such a distraction because they worried so much about him on the outside that had opened up a lot for Bravo for rescinded for for Delhi. Bow Dez. So yeah kind of kind of agree that I think drew. Moore's right there. Don't get me wrong. I think drew. Moore's right there but I think Henderson to me because also seventy nine caps with the national team. I mean it's all around that figure that you say he's he's e- he's done a lot for this game. We're going to have to debate. This are among ourselves. We gotta just battle this thing. Maybe in the locker room scream at each other a little bit. I got a template Charlie. That's not happening. There's no I got one question Marcello. Yeah over the course of your career was the toughest guy to defend it. I'm lost for you because you made it look easy but who gave you trouble every single dime and like. I blamed everybody else when it wrong. No listen I I think that I think there was quite a few. You know when all that was always difficult to mark because of what he did Moreno was harder mark. He was a different type of player. Louis Hernandez when he came into lake because of his pace so the only difference between then and now as I can kick the crap out of him back into foot. These guys and I'd get worse. I'd get a yellow card. You know what I mean but you know. That's that's A. that's a tough one. Because even going against John Spencer in practice was was difficult he was quickey was just very agile. Mama do the all owned by Lord? Was he a monster to mark. You know what I mean. So it's it's there's been quite a few in that in that league that you would put in that that chewed three because everyone had a little some different when all the head deceiving pace when Alderwood slow you down I two steps he could run by means saw and then again who was feeding them the ball it would put it in behind so there was there was there was there was quite a few that Her tato that was difficult in recent pfleger stuff. Democracy always buzzed around everywhere. But Yeah I would say that I mean you look at that for me. Miranda was not easy was not easy Tamar. We've seen a lot of the mark you Charlie. I was happy. Hey coach me now. I got the coach Marcello. We're GonNa let you forgot. We were GONNA. Charlie had a bone to forget about that roster. And so I'm one of the last guys cut. Okay and Marceline rack is bringing Zinger Schmidt. You Got Marcelo Balboa. John Harkes I mean this is Peter Vermes. This is the ultimate coaching staff. Neil I feel good. I scored a hat trick in that last week before the decision right unlike hope my ticket to the Utah World and I'm one of the alternates. You don't why I can sleep at night Charlie to be honest with you because I was not involved in that decision. Okay it was done between Ziggy Peter. Vermes and John Hartson. I think those three went to the World Cup. Yeah so I was. The I was the we needed a fender. Can you work with the defenders? Can you help us defend? But I was not tart of that conversation and more than likely not but listen. He knows this because Kevin Anderson. You know that I was a fan of yours. I loved what you did. And how you play. If I would have had a say you would have been on that roster because there was no one else on that team that can do that. Had to pay a you. Did you know what I mean the end the things that you could bring to us saw but I was lucky. I didn't have to make that decision. I walked out of. There amounts. Good Charlie Charlie is going to have to find the next guy to pick them out right now. We have Peter. I'm asking the question from Charlie's you twenty days Marcello. Thank you so much for the time in. This will be the first time it was the first time. I guess it won't be the last. We'll get some more stories because we barely scratched the surface so much more I fellas thank you for having me appreciate it. Good luck debating on that last last piece of the Pie and joy to chat with Marcello. That was awesome stuff from him. And I think what we settled on those first three doyle or pretty locked in you got Marcelo Balboa he's got to be there in my opinion then you've got Pablo Mastroeni and you have connor case. He was the all time goal leader and then it gets. It gets tough because then it is Chris Anderson who had two stints with the club probably not his fault but he's writing at the top and assists and goals in games. He was there for a lot of those playoff years early on after that ninety. Six hundred bucks. He's he's up at the top and all the statistical categories but then drew more. Who was the captain of the Cup? Winning team the only team to win a trophy now. Pablo PABLO WAS CAPTAIN DOT COM team. The team to win a trophy didn't they? They won. They won US Open Cup back in the day to day. I know they lost nineteen ninety nine to the protest to go ask. We didn't ask Marcelo about that. I thought about it but I chose those trades. You brought him down. I really doubt then. Who's the fourth is a drew more? Is it Chris Henderson? How do we make this decision? What should it be Hugo? I I mean Chris Henderson was really really good. He was really really good. Drew more was the starting center back and honestly arguably the best player on the team that won MLS Cup drew. More has been super underrated throughout his entire career. Agreed he and he was awesome that year and he was especially good in the playoffs. I'm not a rings guy but like when you're when you're that good on the team that won the trophy that most everybody cares about That puts them over the top for me and he's played more games right. These players got more games. And he's coming back to Colorado to finish his career. He still a starter. He actually scored a game winning goal in week. One was against Against DC united. And Yeah I think I think the more you're out here giving the dyron scored big goals moment hunt. You gave his ACL for a trophy. When does a player physically hand over there? Acl four specific avenue. We could be here today. Disrespect this I won't say when you talk about best player on that two thousand ten team there was that span when Omar Cummings was playable He's not on this list because of gone jeopardy and time but he had probably as as good as anyone I've seen with south rapids but I will say drew more as well longtime guy number two and appearances over spell of good and bad all that stuff all the things oil sands everything Chris. Anderson gets a nod somewhere he gets honored in this process but the fact that drew more helped bring that MLS cup. Despite the fact let's be honest Raillard season that rapids team was like basically five hundred dot com now to which is best team. Yeah they're run. The Cup was It was against all odds a lot of ways but it doesn't matter you won the thing you brought a trophy home. I'm going to agree. I think drew more based on that measure more plus the fact that he's been there forever and his comeback. He's got the president to kind of build on a good team now so I think drew more makes a fourth. How about the team though? Is it the team? We closed out kinks out. What if you had to go have a child stuff? But Marcelo Balboa stayed on with us for a little talking about best team and he was pretty quick to say Twenty Sixteen Z. Said the way the twenty ten went coming in last in the playoffs being moved to the Eastern Conference not winning the West. All that stuff sit right for full team and for twenty sixteen. They knew who they were. They use their atmosphere in that a lead teams tire themselves out than they press them later at altitude outside of that one second game against Seattle sounders. They probably go MOLEST Cup if they stick to their who they were and what they did well so he said twenty sixteen and I think it's pretty easy to agree. They would've won most cup because I wouldn't even need to take a shot to do it. Yeah hosted in a hosted Toronto Just think about not just I feel two thousand sixteen as well. That is your teen. Didn't restrain her. This another striker. You know Kevin Doyle no man. Gosh Gosh she was the leading score. Yeah but he wasn't there he wasn't there read striker and it was their number nine. Yeah trigger we'll see what we see had nine goals them. The most fun about the greatest of all time bracket is that I think we should treat it as if it's an actual game where we're like okay. How's this rapid steam with Pablo coaching without a forward? GonNa match-up against whatever. I didn't go match by match up. We Act as if this is not just on gut also for doyle obviously because we already I think we gotta what's his name. Drop Jackson you'll earlier. Starting in the playoffs at number nine was dom budget. Oh boy my dom might take him over the edge alone by themselves. Boston University sucks to be you. And on that note. Big Everybody for listening. Hope you're having a great week.

Episode 562 - Lower Decks - 8/13/20

"Hey let's start the show for Thursday. August thirteenth twenty twenty welcome to this is only a test, the official podcast of tested. That's great. Old On your doubling their go. That was wonderful. The contest is over I mean that wins right I. think that's all you can almost see the nine, hundred, Eighty s style Saturday morning cartoon they mentioned that goes over it. A few things. First of all, that was created by a doctor draft on twitter was not emailed to us, but we'll take twitter submissions uploaded soundcloud at less reverb I believe is his handle Jimmy. Your mic is little hot some you tune that just a little bit Twenty three seconds long. But I think that still falls within the parameters wasn't thirty seconds if faded off nicely at the end of the the eighties vibes one hundred percent are jam. I want to hear. Slightly different style. Just get a sense of it but right now, I agree with you it is near the top of the list that. One l. a different style of from other PVs a different style news for other other time periods you know. We we of course, love going to tap into eighties astrologer chip tunes the you know the the stacked or peggie owes of the stranger things like that stuff is great but I don't know when I missing unless I hear it and if there is another style of their something that's a little more maybe maybe go backwards in time what is something that's what is a barbershop quartet? The sound like maybe that that could resonate with me I don't know I like. I'll go for that. I just want to hear. I get the synthesizer. Sounds fantastic. But. They're are a lot more. The longer point is that there are a lot more intros that we have to try out because you guys are killing it with some saying this Intros, we're still taking more of them. If you WANNA create one, you can just email us to soundcloud link will download it will play in a future episode or tweeted at us at jeter jared enchant at science quiche even shores not here it's a do Oh cast this week Jeremy Are you doing I'm okay. Thanks for asking A. We did this strange brew about a week ago so it's like I do a little bit of okay I'm okay. How are you doing? Strange brew. Straight seriously the yeah Bob and Doug McKenzie. Go and they work at a beer factory. Never saw this the SETV spinoff. No okay it's old old show. It's comedy from the Eighties Yeah. We have to watch it. It's it's fantastic. made the whole family left. All right. Well, that's that's that's what you've been doing. Catching up on eight, hundred, eighty comedy. Here and there. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, and it makes me sad to hear that you eighties resurgence is over and you're ready to move on to barbershop quartets. I'm ready to go back further in time I'm really into Perry Mason right now that's my recommendation for the week it's on Hbo Max Hbo. That's the the new, our thirties era detective lawyer, a courtroom drama. Revived for modern, day it's Matt Reese who was in the Americans and Richard written improves by Junior and it's just a fantastic shots show record many of them by timber patent who did a lot of boardwalk empire. So definitely, a very period authentic in show a lot of great production value, very heavy story. So it's not odd if you're looking for something lighter your little bit too late now, Jeremy so we're GONNA. Work on this. Picky you know what better to be lighter than to be too hot because I can always fix that in post to be honest with you I've actually been watching every day for a few days now, which is uncommon for me. I don't watch. TV. Is the morning show. I'm finally watching the morning show from Apple TV plus which is like their big the the one that went all the awards it's their big success story. And it's pretty good. I mean have really have you not seen it. I'm not interested in Apple Apple TV plus as A. Content channel right now I mean for free don't you I do for the year and it's probably gonNA. Run out soon because we're getting close to September but. There's too much out there and nothing. Like the interface. Terrible. An Apple TV to get those shows the weight is later in. TV APP, which contains everything else. It is very strange, I grant you that but watch the first two or three episodes. See if you're hooked because it's it's really quite good. I mean like the the writing is probably some of the best parts of it in. Its remind you Aaron Sorkin. So I was just about to ask is it Sorkin ask? No way that will make me just WANNA watch the West Wing in talks. It is like it's banter back and forth it's conservative and liberal viewpoints it's definitely Harkens to to west wing but it it's not west wing I mean it's it's almost an unfair comparison given that they had so many successful seasons in this is a new show but you know it's it's good. It's it's well cast to it's like a bait it's not just like, oh, they found good actors. They found actors that worked well for these roles in a way that I think uses what you know of these actors going into it already you know you is the view or what do you think of Steven Corral? From. Who Calls Him Stephen? Corral. Corral a Mr. Correll from. I think take that with you into this show in a way. That's that's kind of interesting interesting. Okay. Let's give it a try before my subscription lapses or maybe they'll grant people another year raping based on how numbers are looking up anyway enough with the catch up. Let's move on to Oh. It's going to be for for those of you who keep tapping things it's going to be not only are we doing to cast reverse order this week everything's backwards and upside down thanks for not being here in pop in later but we're all as always we start with our top story. Our. Story this week, we're just saying that not a ton of news in there will be some tech, the talk about lot of Microsoft News but I wanted to top story topless something. We completely did not talk about last week and it dropped last week and there was the release of Star Trek lower deck's on CBS all access. There's another reason subscribe to see all access. They're really hoping the people on you had discovery you had lows the other one, there's the spinoff. Card, of course, he's in coming discovers own spinoff for Captain Pike. And now an animated Star Trek show. Of course, the second animates star trek show but this one from one of the CO creators of one of the creators or one of the people who participated in making a rick and Morty when the CO creators be believed solar, it's which I loved. That's the Hulu. Animated Show and this is definitely a commie. So you watched. Most of the first episode. I get that out of the way. It's only the first episode the doubt right. By the time this episode, this podcast comes out there will be two, one, one, drop a week, ten episodes of the first season but yes. Probably people have only seen the first episode I said children gathered round wife come hither. Sit on the couch. Let Us Watch this cartoon show together and you know some of us, we all come from various amounts of star trek interest. Know my ten year old daughter probably having the least of it, my my son and I sharing star Trek Gen we watched every episode and my wife also enjoying having joined most of those next Gen's we all. We're open-minded about it. It didn't care for it. Made it about I'd say two thirds through and then decided I think we'd all rather watch something else. This is not star Trek a cartoon that is sort of using the star trek name in order to launch have more numbers than the unknown cartoon would have. See I disagree great I. Agree in fact on paper you are right. It is not the traditional the fact that it's a straight up comedy animated regardless of animated because you could think of the starship animated series as being. A canonical next season, it was written and voiced by a written by the regional writing team by the regional casts it is or intensive purposes the the the original, the true follow up to original series after that was canceled in stories were written as such. This is not that this is light hearted. It's definitely feels like something that would have been on Fox network an animated animation animation domination alongside the Simpsons or family guy or American Dad. And in today's world of comedy where you have Bob's Burgers, you have a brick and mortar solar opposites and the things that can embrace high-concept faster paced comedy almost feels like a thirty rock of comedy that that kind of speedy but but. Totally you're right. Not Star Trek, but I think the medically character. Wise. It's not just the backdrop it's not star Trek. It's not shallow in its in its how embedded it is in the fabric of the star. Trek universe. But how can you say that from a character standpoint because like all they do little caricatures of all of the senior staff like they're just they are. They are the cartoons you know in this cartoon universe spend and they don't. They don't treat that with any respect seriousness that we've come to that they have earned and. If you look at the senior staff of the other ships when they were brought into next generation. Those characters were often caricatures and mirror all alternate mirror images of the senior staff that we knew from. No next generation and Diaz nine. It's the federation's a big place and this is. Canonical in the host next-gen world before. Picard. The name of the show is a direct reference to season seven episode of Next Generation. One of the best episodes called lower deck's as I'm sure you remember as you've binge the series recently, and if that's well regarded as one of the best next generation, next generation episode because it showed the be cast a C. cast people it's the. Story of what what does this ship full of a thousand people in an hundreds of crew what those people actually do in their day to day when they're not participating on away missions and the very fact that I'm not gonNA heavy spoilers. But the very fact that this ship, the Serena's. Is second contact. And what it means with variation after the flagships get to establish first contact what it means to follow up on that that is deepening of the mythology of star. Trek and that's the fun like the the the. Imagining of the future like the all the bureaucracy I about you know. Streaming up the. Twenty, th century World Universe. This galaxy I am so envious of you that you enjoyed this and and I appreciate that you as a much bigger star trek fan than I ever could possibly be that you are not cynical about this that you're looking at it with an open mind good on you. I'm having a hard time doing that it does not seem like it if I feel like. I love that episode lower decks and I wanted to see that and I didn't care if it was real. You know people or if it was in cartoon form but unfortunately, I feel like they said, okay, it's going to be a cartoon so it has to have this kind of. You Know Ren and stimpy like just like over the. Goofiness to it You're right. It's goofy young. You know the fact that they joke about how people use the hall Dak.. I I would argue that the captain of the ship is not a character that the only character really is the first officer. The reicher type character who I believe is voiced by Jerry O'CONNELL. He's for officer ransom and he definitely has the he takes all the and Reicher was a parody of himself right? Like in the first the first seasons it like the Reicher as we perceive Reicher in, you know mean form and in popular culture today, right? It's a lot of those characters were typecast. You know what? What what council Choi did in the first couple of seasons right like. I think they acknowledged all of that. I don't I. Agree. It's not the full on. Parables that you get from star. Trek but there I think there's room for that later on for the show to really dive into the themes of science fiction and exploit the potential of type of future resume. I like the characters. I like all the characters so far. They feel like you're zagging I'm looking forward to see they have their personality quirks and they have their. Relationships with the other castes that are to be revealed and I just like that it can be a show about the mundane task of being an ensign on a ship and the aspirations of being an officer like they happen. These things about what it's like to be a crew member of Latte. It's fun for a fan to wonder about and think about it's like playing you played like Star Trek Voyager Elite Force right? I did right and that was about being a redshirt grunt and you got to go on the way mission that you weren't part of the main cast and that was a wonderful part of fulfilling that fantasy of being on on Voyager Dude That's not a comparison. They took it seriously that was a serious. A serious game it was. Yes. They put you in the form of a red suit so that they wouldn't have to deal with all the red tape having the bureaucracy of getting stories push through paramount because like it involved a character that they own and care about so that yeah, they put you in a quake three engine awesome. First person shooter game, but it was on an. Offshoot same thing by the way that that started with a drastic park pinball machine. Ben tastic idea great approach. This is not this is this is a goofy kids you know like comedy cartoon that is probably like a lot of the Star Trek stuff for the age group there seemed to be targeted probably over their heads. It's a weird too weird combination of style and star. Trek. Like it's not one that I would expect an it doesn't resonate with me out of the gate I. Hope by the end of the season you feel better about it that you continue to feel as you do now and what happened with the card doesn't happen to this show which was disappointment and I. think that's a fair comparison because the expectations for car were so high this. Idea of live action has the burden of being able to live action is more canonical right? What's what's filmed onscreen is what is written and that is what only matters in the in the text, the capital t text of that world animation. I. Think can still have that power The expectations are probably lower and maybe that's also I think in the world today. I just lighthearted. Is something that I welcome more and the fact that it can live alongside discovery new worlds and Picard. means that we're getting a lot more star Trek on television, which I'm all for because they certainly are not getting their shit done So which which if these like branches of film do you think would you most like to see? Would you like to see the continuation of of the JJ verse that cast or do you WanNa. See the Tarintino version what do you WANNA. See on the big screen next multi no one was supposed to be with the cast of the JJ early there was some news this week to that some some I think some offhand mentioned because it's not really moving forward. The tarintino take on Star Trek, which was going to be quote unquote grittier and he didn't he came up with the idea idea is that he is going to also direct it but it was going to be written by someone else into like the script but it was going to return to the classic next Jenner Earth's original series episode where. They go into a world where there are thirties gangsters. A piece of the action was the name of the episode season two episode seventeen, and it's where Kirk and spock go into a planet where everyone is basically you know they use the back lot where they overshooting mob movies or TV shows and put Kirk and spock in pinstripes suits and it was gonna be that take on Star Trek which a lot of a lot of fans again saw that as maybe to reverend even though its canonical and there are a lot opportunities for cultural relevance and poignant. Criticism of the world science fiction does best in that storytelling, but it's one. If I'm paying the see star Trek, it's got to be in space and it's got to have phasers and I got to see aliens and I don't think that's always the case, and in fact, you probably that better on an animated show, then you couldn't live action show budget. Wise. You didn't answer the question though I think the answer is I would've loved to see I think they had like to directors tapped in one of them. Was No halley he was going to his take on the gingy Verse Continuation After Lucy in the sky lent little excited about that but the thing that they're pitched. At the release of Star Trek beyond their like we're gonNA, get Chris Hemsworth back and and do a kirk meet Kirk Father Story I would love to see that. Okay. That would have been big budget and often and certainly the stakes of emotional stakes would have been there anyway. we have to get shorts thoughts later on I don't know we're not going to do a week by week recap of lower deck's sounds like the appetite isn't there but if the shows good I will continue to champion it and maybe that will convince you Jeremy Williams. Sunday pick it up again without family. I feel like the burden of trying to please the family also maybe. Soured. Your Juror your take on the show. It's true I. Did put myself out there and you're right. I failed. Yeah. Well, that's that don't let personal disappointment. Ruined ruined the show for everyone else, Jeremy All right. Let's move on to our next segment. The V are. Virtual reality this week. Oh how many weeks away are we from OCULUS connect? Well, we don't know began that would be that would be good information to have I keep waiting these weeks keeps starting, which is typically win. This kind of news is announced in. There are no announcements they must have a plan very straight I mentioned this week particularly because it is October thirteenth as you're listening to this and the date that was pushed out with that leaked oculus quest. New version that photo that white oculus quest presumably, that's what it's called. They'll still have the quest name on it. Since September fifteenth, and that is a month away. So you would think if they're going to do some type of virtual event which we expect them to know, they would announce it at least a month out I know registration would probably not be required in the same way they're gonNA do a virtual events can be broadcast to everyone but I want to know the details I mean developers needs to know about the kind of sessions that they want to attend, right how they can participate in June as and and How they do game demos there. So many questions in the air for US covering this event on your annual basis. I'm GONNA look like remotely like whereas Medal of honor where the heck is medal of honor I could understand why specific you know bullet points or keynote subjects might be sort of you know a little gray right now are written in pencil but you would think that the actual date would be established that that's the strange thing they could announce when it's going to be a the only reason that I can think of why. They might postpone it is because they have an established how they want to host the event in like I keep coming back to your idea, which is like if they could launch horizons and get everybody in there somehow some sort of you know instance theater event where everyone can attend in a virtual environment and the amazing. Maybe they just can't like they'd like to get there and they can't. That's the only thing that I that I can think of why to be a delay in any kind of announcement for the date, but you know who knows. But there is a while there is oculus news there's a bunch of PS VR news action. The first of which is hitman three that's coming out next year is going to be, of course, the final of the trilogy Hitman, the new Hitman trilogy out on your yes. Four PS five xbox one presumably xbox one xbox series X. PC but as showed off on Sony State of play the PS four version and presumably ps five version which will support PSV are will support the are. As long way of saying VR support for Hitman three is that the entire game though or is it just like a few missions I think it's not only is it the entire game? They said that if you have meant to and Hitman, you'll be able to import the data. If you own those on playstation, you will replay those missions in VR's well entire trilogy playable in Vr. Seem, right like I could. Like from not from not from a first person perspective I mean, that's that's a lot of re engineering of the game and rethinking how the game playworks in camera control and I mean it's not you have to design a game from the ground up in order to get it right in Vr. I. Usually and. I just the. The clip that we see of the of you taking the piano wire whatever and then wrapping around the guy's neck and everything those mechanics those are animated typically in the way that all of those things collide in work well is because it's you know had done. To to allow six degrees of freedom with each hand wrapping around other. Than, colliding and everything that's the seems like an enormous task and I would think that you'd want to unity have to handle that from the ground up to a lot of extra working hoarding it backwards older games that sounds like an impossible task. It's not the first time we've seen an older game. Ported to Vr. Was that one list Iran certainly and other for. This all out and people have done and. There was even that co-op. Cross platform cops and robbers shoot 'em up the game right Do you remember that while? Yeah, the the Rockstar one. Was Was it Rockstar I don't think it was. Facial animations right. Case files. Oh no no. No that's L.. A. Nor Eleanor, right. Yes eleanor was yet another one, but there was a multiplayer one that was adapted very popular 'cause a high co op and you could do VR and on. VR, Cross play. So I think it's doable. I think you're right. It's going to be bootstrapped a little bit in some of the mechanics know the porting motion to our button animation to emotion Characters rig shore. You can see the hands, and as you can see, the gameplay trailer hand movement is there. It's not just head movement. But wait. So you're imagining you're tying of button to these actions. Saying that what would normally have been a button? In animation, they have to map and make sure the interaction with NBC's objects in the world still work to trigger. Yeah. The the the state, right whether it's an assassination whether it's the piano thing whether it's activating door, right the all these things have. Those are the mechanics out reported over. But if they do it for their latest game. I can't see why it's not an easy to then retroactively to work on the first two games. Mentioned same scripting language and everything it's done like. You When you introduced the are into a game that wasn't designed for it like not only do you have to deal with all of the motion sensitivity problems that the player might encounter, but you have all of these. Walls erected that the player could never break through, and now suddenly they can move through everything they can push their head through things but their hands through things collide with things they weren't supposed to break physics engines. Break illusions and like. Maybe some emergent things will arise from that and that's interesting but it's like actually making a playable game out of it. It sounds like a huge like difficult task I'm just amazed that even they could do like a hitman game from the ground up at all like that. It's it's it's interesting. Man I hope it will be a huge success, but it just sounds like the back porch to older game sounds like a challenge. I can see it. It's not ideal but I think at this point, it's only way they're going to get those assets to work. You'RE NOT GONNA get a Hitman game of the scale built from the ground up. And as I think, the are fans will be happy to adapt to this and you've gotta give the VR user especially the younger users more credit payday to was that game that was first released as a straight of traditional PC gaming console game ports VR, very popular and people gave it a lot of leeway for some comfort issues because you got to play this you know. Full fledge console game in in headset, and just the added immersion. made it worth at. Another port this time from mobile. VR To. While console VR is vader immortal, alum X. Lab which. I know they're doing kilson galaxies edge. We talked about previously also did three episodes of our moral and all three of those episodes will be released in PSBR, as of later, this month is August twenty fifth is that Right Yeah August twenty fifth thirty bucks for all three? Yeah I think the the game was. The game it's a game we experience store or whatever you WanNa call it was interactions were simple enough that motion ones would be suitable and you know they feel like lightsaber and. If you don't have a question, UPS Vr, we're thinking up. What do you think is the story behind this this this game being shared from Oculus to playstation I mean a lot of people think well, it's a third party game maybe oculus contacted them and gave was a timed exclusive deal. That's exactly what I wonder about that though because like it's it's been like it's been a while and I wasn't expecting it to be anywhere else I mean certainly I've said before like there's there's no difference between First Party and third party of of money's involved and if they bought this game if basically like paid for this game and you know I'll m. You know didn't get any royalties in the back end or they didn't get like any rights to the game. This is not up to the to to make deal playstation. This would have been up to OCULUS. So I wonder if it was, and if this is in fact, part of some sort of share between Sony and Oculus a content share that could lead to you know other games that were exclusive to playstation coming to oculus exclude. Hope Hoping I mean you're talking about testers effect being the example of the other way around. The PS first then go to quest I think in both these cases you're looking you're seeing something that probably I think is in there I think it's Lawyers Logistics of time exclusively it's not exactly the same thing tetris effect to epic I. It was on and they epic bought the time exclusive on PC and then it's going to come out on steam eventually if it. Hasn't already been announced but. This is like the first time that it's been anywhere else and it's it's odd that it's going to Sony I'm maybe I'm just excited to see more. Sony exclusives come to the PC in one form or another I mean it's a good point that wise this coming out on it. Check vader immortal is not on are not on steam. Right it's on, it's on a regular oculus. Yes it's just on oculus. It's still yeah. So it's going from one closed garden. So another walled garden, which that's the thing that raises eyebrows. Why not if you're GONNA, if exclusivity period is over and you're GonNa go to PS VR. You had the P. C. You compile. You can take off the OCULUS scarves and put on steam or epoch right? Why Yeah. Exclusively maybe. It's a non compete. Well maybe that maybe maybe Sony just was the highest bidder maybe that's just like I only paid that paid paid for this. I think alum wanting to reach a new market because they are a developer publisher and They're PSBR users are isolated from quest users, and there's another opportunity there. Why wouldn't they release everywhere else on pc then? I. Think, it's non compete I. Don't think anybody wants to be on playstation VR from a development standpoint if you could be on steam versus ESPN. Honestly like the the specs are so hard to work within like in terms of like just the processing but those controllers. This six stuff experience and Iron. Man's the best we got and even they said it was not and truth is pretty good. I'm telling you that DEB's do not like working with move controllers. As great as that market is it's a nice huge market, but I would think that's why you go there because there's money involved. Yeah and you gotTA remember that move controllers warn even essential to begin with right there. There was the connect of the PSBR? Accessory. Additional add on the add on I don't know. Maybe. There's something there I i. It just feels to me a read to me just like standard time. You know details in the nitpicking of the contracts that allowed them, but makes me think we'd love I would love for I. Agree. I would love to see. All the VR players bind together or or or you allow more standardization of these times exclusives to be released because it's less about this building the user base the as a whole right now unless about owning owning the platforms Koumba. Last bit of. News n Real, which has their their losses, which I always will attest earlier this year they're finally launching in Korea in South Korea the unreal lights. So it's paired with the launch of Samsung's Galaxy Twenty and there is pricing it will be a five, hundred, ninety dollars equivalent If you buy it just as it stand alone and real glasses I, believe this includes their Their the puck leak processor puck But if you want to buy it with a galaxy note twenty, then it'll be only about three hundred dollars. What are the phones that it's compatible with? I mean definitely the Galaxy Twenty but I think it's a qualcomm basically new or qualcomm. Chips? Will work with it actually without pricing I don't even know if that includes that will include the the processing unit probably not. Yeah because if if it's if you get the kind of price for buying with the galaxy and you presumably use that as the processor, then you wouldn't be buying be processing unit itself. that's. I mean there are still no plans were announced plans for it's a come out in the states there's only developer edition. So they may still want to building a bigger software catalog. Yeah. That's the problem I mean when apple comes around and finally releases their glasses, they're not gonNa these pitch and hardware they're going to be pitching experiences. They're going to have software done like shows you something that you want, and then you buy the hardware in order to get that like. So far it's just been a lot of cool hardware. You know attempts that have become market for developers so that developers can make that killer APP and not we haven't seen yet chicken and egg egg. Yeah. Yeah. I mean. And using then real light one of the things they don't need every single application. You don't need a parody with what you on a smartphone like maps messaging web browser. That's that's overkill even. they didn't have that they have their wes s and there are things you could do in that. You know. I always think you need really is a simple streamlined way to transfer. Within reason. OJ files objects that you can ma thirty models that you can then project in front of you and then examine right if this is going to be a productivity tool for people designing on fought screens and then one experience it you know next in physical space and away to also Amir a screamer from other a phone or a laptop or some type of output h. l. put that then has that image and maps it to some. Plane now, whether it's your wall and have it fixed in space. So. It's not moving as your head moves it's locked in. So you can say my phone I'm plugged into this this these glasses I want whenever it's playing on my phone whether it's youtube full video or just the Os web browser to be locked onto that wall or floating in front of me I think that would be. That would be enough for me to want to use this on a semi regular basis. Yeah. That is jumping right to the regular basis. You know kind of you know use case I I wonder if there's going to be something intermediary be cool I mean I could imagine we We renovated our house five years ago. How amazing would it have been to build a walk through the House while it was you know down to its studs and project various options you know walls while colors, furniture's shapes, kitchen's like just in different configurations that would be an incredible use for this kind of technology I mean. You have that with all your Ikea apps and all your efforts, all your shopping APPs, and the fact that people can do that holding a phone in front. That's sufficient. You know you'll need to spend five hundred thousand dollars on glasses to see it in your field of view. When the thing that you already have that the you know the mapping is built in to these phones a good enough right just from from a computer vision a that's that's a hard sell I. Disagree actually I think it would be different to see it in Stereo end in live six off while you can move your head around. Different Yeah I don't know I think that there might be a sort of a VR versus flat-screen experience difference there. But you know who knows. I just wonder I just I'm I'm just curious as anybody about how ar is going to capture the the market's imagination. All right. Well I think that's it anything else from One thing I want to quickly mention. We have time for Tom Ford I've been testing. something. Completely. Weird. But I'm mentioning in VR minute and they are shoes. These shoes. All right. All right. Let's see them. These are a pair of drop labs. There from a spin off from the people who did the beats, headphones and They are haptic feedback shoes. No. What are you talking about? So they have like the reason I found about these is because I've been doing us a bunch of a transducer work. So I have like installed the my chair the but kicker transducer, which takes the low end. Through for audio split off from whatever movie you're playing or even a VR headset right and you can feel in the chair the base, it's basically a really strong base localized to your, but it gives you the forty experience that you will get in a theater. But at home and something, you can definitely incorporate only your living room but also maybe in the cockpit for games like star wars squadrons coming out, I, feel he's pretty impressive. Fight later, right feel the rumbling of jet because a lot of times a low end that you get from audio, it's mixed well, enough can simulate the kind of rumbling that you want to feel those games quick question about that. Are there any games that actually have like a transducer channel that is only for that? No but there are software and there's even free software that you can get. That basically allows you to take that low end and they know specifically for racing. Games. That low end is. Is Map to things like the rustling on the grass versus pavement. A different type sound and you can tune that frequencies in tune. The cutoffs so that you actually feel it more less of audio and more of it just for the the feedback that transducer feedback. It's still hack. It's not A. The point one channel isn't just for half the it'd be great but then if it was, but that requires a level of mixing and it's not there it's all analog because analog to the tactile, the physical one of your favorite things rates while the three point five millimeter jacket so useful. This the same thing Bluetooth connection or a wired connection made for music. So ideas that you know. Bluetooth. From your phone to the shoes than from shoes, your headphones, your Bluetooth. Headphones and you're listening to let's say Hamilton. You get to feel the base your feet. It doesn't go all the way through your body. It's not like having you know going to a concert and having these. Megawatts, speakers that are rumbling your heart but you feel as if you're standing no denic called it a, you sound like a bad neighbor. Your neighbors are playing the vase really loud when the. Listening to music. It's like it feels like it feels like you're a bad neighbor like I'm walking around the house. And, it's yeah. Here's at all my feet as if like what is that low end? What does that base? Let's move it around but she hears it yet if I've hardwood floors and so yeah definitely like through the floor to if I'm on the floor above and hardwood floors, you can hear it. On a floor below like you know someone was Boston their sub Woofer is you know living above you but they're tiny little drivers where the thing. So where are the drivers and they how how big is it is about that big it's about this big. That's why it's there had to make their own transducers I think the the fiscal profile of this is what like Limits how powerful these can be obviously, there's a battery and here's there's all these kind of like design constraints for making these wearable they're heavier in the normal shoes I'm not wearing them outside yet 'cause I don't WanNa get dirty but you know right now in the house but yet music's use case doing a bunch of that but gaming is there other use case so? Before talk about VR console gaming works over like. Connection like your Xbox, you plug in three point five millimeter jacking your xbox controller like can directly tied to the shoes I played red dead redemption it's fascinating. On Your on a horse and you're galloping. Bill the hubs. As if you're on the horse and they're hitting the bottom your shoes. As you're running through the world really same as you're. You're like waiting into a lake or A. And the water was rushing apparently there's enough low Lohan right that you know. Enough that the low pass filter gets it. So you feel a little bit that kind of tingling sensation. Of. What it would be like if you were stepping into in a little bit of water. You, haven't. Tried it with a VR APP? Yes. So I did beat Sabre and pistol whip and I will be doing this with Racing Games which is my most interesting use case with this but beat sabre works really well, it's Direct Line Connection Not Bluetooth. So there's no latency problems and you feel the beat it's just like it's an added part of the experience I didn't know I wanted but after not doing it, it's like Oh man I could really use more base especially with the quest headphones right? Like it audio isn't already isn't that great and I did it with the Stoxx audio has trapped and having okay base in that but then then. It being a full body Dick from foot to head that was. The increase the immersion that's wild man I mean I. I always was fascinated by just how much basic rumble delivered to video games when we got the rumble pack for the Gamecube for the and sixty four. And since then like that has been enough for like over a decade and. It's it's like I doesn't surprise me that this makes a difference to your gaming is just funny. You GotTa admit like you're putting rumble shoes on in order to play beat Saber. And it makes me want like the topic engine feedback. You know the kind of very precise hd happy that you get on the joy cons you get on your phone and what you're going to get on the PS five controllers like I want localized because you think of it as almost the resolution of the happy ex- right right now resolutions pretty low in terms of not the temporary the frequencies are fine responsive. It's fine terms of how quickly and how responsive it is, but it's only In one spot and so you can't pinpoint you know feel something on the tip of your toes versus the he'll. It's localized just in the center because that's where they designed it. I could see this in the future having you know maybe three spots and they've done studies of like how many you need for to feel having a meaningful fact I'd looked to see like that research but racing games, right? If you're going to do a racing game and you have a transducer in your seat. You have feedback on your, let's say your your wheel right you don't have feedback on your pedals I wonder and I haven't done this yet will this give you enough of the feedback on your feet to feel to increase immersion of of driving. No. You don't think so. No. I don't I. Don't know. I've looked into wheels. It seems like what people care about most interesting. You say that 'cause people consistently say it's not the wheel it's the pennells. Actually get that that sensation of actually feeling where that resistances with the break especially and. You know you wanna you WanNa get that with your pedal. Anyway you WanNa have huddle you want good pedals I'm saying like What you don't get even with good pedals is the ambient. Sensations of. Rumbling a excellent cockpit presumably rumbling and even if I have the transducer on my seat. That's like my points of contact to the cockpit are my butt and my feet. And if I have the rumble on on the but. Why not have the rumble in the feet as well do it. It'll make it feel like you're even more immersed. Get that new logitech stream with rumble in the wheel. You got like four points a rumble to me. Great right right no gloves needed right it's happening feedback gloves but for your feet anyway, more testing required want to give a preview of that Let's move on quickly because we are running a little bit low on time but let's head over to Guyq, Hewitt up not up our next segment. Old. Lot of Microsoft News this week I'M GONNA run to a relatively quickly you know last week we were just on the heels of the announcement that ex cloud service will be coming to Android and we wonder why not Iowa us and it became a whole big thing. apple had to make a statement it turns out it's this whole policy in walled garden aspect of it all where apple thinks having games on. on IRS. At, they can't individual review each game like they do with discrete applications. On a service like this, they will not allow that service which seems like an arbitrary distinction when you have subscription services that allow things like other pieces of content, lay books and movies that they allow that they don't absolutely review each of those pieces of content. It feels like this is to protect their arcade well, he a- and revenue streams and. They do allow you to have an APP lake steam link as long as the APP, only streams content that is on your local area network already. So you can play games that are on a local console, but you can't play games from the cloud. That's the distinction that they make in their T. O. S.. It seems a complete arbitrary. Yeah and I'm sure if Microsoft wanted to pick a fight with apple about this, they would not necessarily be in the wrong and it could bring up matters Vanc- trust. It's still backwards it's just so You know what is not backwards unfortunately like the backwards way to do, it would be to treat the phone like a PC that's an open platform than anybody can develop for and anybody can release whatever they want. An apple sells the platform and anybody can do what they want with it. Being good thing. Yes. Like that is like that's the P. C., that is what the PC. The apple two was, but still with the MAC is although they'd like to make it a close walled garden with their APP. Store. But the phone is definitely that is like a walled garden and we live in Apple's world and so do all the developers e even Microsoft. Yeah. Yeah. That's rather unfortunate. I. Hope they figure it out and come to terms, but it doesn't look like that will and you know he's cloud gaming is isn't GonNa go away. Apple hasn't make made any moves on that. You know they're they're arcade play while I'm sure did well, in the first few months seems have -puter off because it's not easy being a manager publisher relations and they don't have hard right now that attracts the same type of Gamers that people would go xbox for or go to a PC for. More Microsoft side of course, xbox series, x now just coming out this year but November, it's been identified. So yeah how much will be? Don't know. Still. Not Don't announce. Don't know how much will be I. Think is still playing a game of chicken with Sony. You saw Mike's tweet. That's what he said. He said is there ever been a game of chicken like this aren't in game console history and no. One can think of a time Microsoft is so flush right now that they could absolutely pull power move and undercut Sony's like Sony, did with PS four verse xbox. One, I, know the PNL's the the budgets aren't the same in Microsoft Kansas say because we're worth over trillion dollars on our stock. Is Doing wonderfully you know, Hey, my xbox division you can afford to not make as much money they need to to keep that that part of the business growing but if they really wanted to, it matters like this will the pricing because it's a game of chicken not tells you how important it is and Gamers know when we're talking about several hundreds of dollars to invest the console in addition to sixty dollar plus games. That fifty dollar difference one, hundred dollars in the council prices matters a lot. And you gotta think about Microsoft. Must be doing the math about their supply chain right now whether they can have unit said if they undercut the pricing than they essentially have supply shortages and that's not gonNA be great for their launch no matching supply and demand plus the perception of high pricing and the whole history of bad pricing on xbox like all that is weighing on them. That is to say. I'm sure they've. They're going to announce it out sometime soon because people got to do pre orders, right they got around buying s right and they got that halo infinite out this year on at Launch Time Jeremy not coming out this year. Coming up this year. Hill infinite pushed the two thousand, twenty one. Canoes probably ought you know? Hey, it's like, Miyamoto. Says you know a game released too early as always bad game delayed is. Potentially good. So it's funny because on. One of the distinguishing factors as you have early access being a widely acceptable part of the culture where you can have a game that isn't done quote unquote for years and you can still charge forty. To sixty dollars for that, because people WANNA play it and they can accept the faults of it. On a computer, but they will not accept the game is ever-evolving even though that's still the case with patches, updates and content releases on the console side. In the same way, really I wouldn't have expected that I'm not a real console gamer these days. I mean th, that's part of the reason why this has been delayed some of the reception presumably people on Internet not liking what they saw at the beginning showcase, and also, of course, working from home these past couple months, shores inhibited their ability to collaborate the this massive team at four three. It's A to make this game So anyway, they will not have at launch and so. It really looks like this first part exclusives it stronger on the PS five side than it is on the series X. Speed pricing there was a leak from a controller image of what looks to be an xbox series S. so we weren't even on the Sony side there's going to be two places, fives one with HD BLU ray with this support one without disk support and presumably this'll be similar on the mark side. It'll be a more affordable version of the series x called. The series s says opposed to the XBOX one s coming out years later this was just be available at launch. That's the tradition Yep. Last been soft news member, the surface do oh. Yeah, that was the super expensive to screen tablet phone. Is it a phone? Bone Laptop. Yeah. It'll be the ultimate. You know use it on the subway, use it on your airplanes. Hybrid between the dream of Microsoft courier, obviously, they'd have the they had to change things up quite a bit with lockdown if you work from home and now it's no longer a device to be sold for people who were commuting. Lot It's devices. So you can take a break from your desktop computer and still have the functionality to access your PDF's in your mic soft word At, the park or something or on the couch but it will come out on September tenth that came up. So soon for fourteen hundred dollars less than a month away it's android, of course, in this kind of ties in the Microsoft Building android full android support and windows. You can basically run android apps on newest version or review version of windows pure is available on best buy on Microsoft store at and T.. But it is expensive five point six inch. Oh, lead four or the restaurant show divided into two actually sorry four by three aspect ratio connect to four three screens come together for three by to Gratiot more boxy screen. What was the phone? That was it a Samsung phone was galaxy fold yet that it had issues with like the thing people thought it was peeled away material to fix that but that Wasn't that more expensive, wasn't it? Like two thousand dollars I think so and you know the the Motorola had version and the fold two of. The announcing the Z. Flip out the bendable all leads. This is not full leads. This is straight up seem and with styles support I think a lot of questions will be how well integrated is android this and how how much does that fades the background and therefore sparty APP experiences how how smooth is that? I. Really WanNA use one. Gambling can't imagine a scenario without travel. Happy will to choose that over. Like a laptop. Thou travel with but I'm really curious about I'm not going to buy one hundred dollars too expensive but maybe we'll reach out to Microsoft and see if they'll be interested in sending one for review the last bit the tech. Ampere nvidia graphics cards probably GONNA. Be Announced September I. It's a right. It's like three weeks away weeks away three thousand series there have been leaked benchmarks already won't go over those but the last, the two thousand series very well, and they this is them trying to take things back With amd being very aggressive on the pricing on the radio inside. So I can't wait to see what this have. My question will have the display link port, the USB port that'd be the ten eighty s had in the founders dishes had that the new ones don't. So. Yeah. So that would be like the one to rule them all. Yes. That will presumably allow a in the standard of USB video over USB. See all the bandwidth display poor that would plug into an action. VR heads not data in the same way that you you oculus quest but actual video right? So but you wouldn't. Currently. Even with the latest, you need a display port plus a USB this would be a single cable. Yes cable. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That'd be I mean I'm curious about these new cards my feeling about the twenty series was that it brought artifacts brought the Ray tracing real time ray tracing, which was you know incredible if the game supported it, but otherwise, the benchmarks didn't seem terribly improved over the ten series. Like a shift up slightly in a saying you know you're you're twenty seventy was as fast as your ten eighty that kind of yeah. So I'll be curious to see if it's the same thing this time around or if they if you sort of get a massive improvement across the board, I think that's the idea that's. Proven plus. Rt Act quake to you and RT X. Lotta of fun. Time Day stop it's it totally is doing it no I haven't i. I should try it booted up quick to like. It's a game that I'm sure you've played you played a ton of and you're like, you know those levels and you can pause the menu change time a day chains shadows. A lot of cool kind of photography effects you can put in own real time. It's very nice. Braid anniversary edition coming out WANNA give a shoutout. That's one of the best games of two generations ago. That think that that under sells it. It's the best. The Best Games of all time is it is absolutely one of the best puzzle games of all time Jonathan, blow of course, David Hellman, the art has been redone by ever helmets to make it look better. You know the game in my mind look so good the ourselves so distinct that I struggled to imagine what will like I will actually be that meaningful maybe sharper a high-rise This isn't a re sampling of the original assets they went back and repainted everything. They've done it right like they went back and now there's actually additional facts that It looks like some of the brush strokes are actually animating constantly and they redid a lot of the artwork so that it just isn't a more beautiful art style as well as being higher resolution and more complicated in terms of what they can do with the faster processors. But I think more importantly for me. Is. Obviously I, do want to play the game again I haven't played it since it came out. and. I'm sure it will all be fresh again, which is going to get a wonderful thing. It seems like the right amount of time we forgot the solutions La Puzzles right exactly that like in the back of your head like, oh I'm like triggering the same thought processes that I went through the same emotional difficulties I went through to get through the forget the first time but now we're older but you understand if you didn't play this game, this is a designers game this game designers game like which is like if you are a game designer, you love this because of the innovation that. They put into that Jonathan blow put into the puzzle design in the game designing it did things with old you know things that that had never been done before. So it made you think outside the box and what they've done is they've added a commentary layer to the new the new game which they're saying is the best commentary in game commentary experience a anyone's ever accomplished in a video game. So I can't wait to see that the delve into all of the how was made what were the thought processes give me the developers notes aspect of these things. That's super super interesting Item. TV News. Let's talk about TV's in the future time that was a more a time filler We're not doing science unfortunately because shores out here there was a small chance he was gonna pop in quit I gotta ask you you were going to talk about the transparent will lead TV. Yep. How are they doing that? How? Because I can understand how they like black? We're transparent and anything that got white or or was colorful became more and more opaque, and then like maybe like solid is fully opaque and everything else would have to be kind of inbetween. Like, their images show opaque black. I. Think the images are probably not representative of what the TV looks like in person and you lose I think in full transparent votes probably not as transparent as you thank you I see through it. Yes. But you know there could be a close a screen door type effect or could look like. Nd you filter attention of it. The their image is really would require an Alpha channel in the video signal and video signals don't have that like like Santa video signals are strictly RGB and this is not transparent as you wash the content it's transparent. We turn the TV off not according to some of the demos stuff. That's what I'm saying that you can see through the parts around the butterfly that are not colored in so it must be then. A pass filter right they in their processing say anything that's supposed to be white. Or Black Image processing frame by frame you know you cut off this point and make it transparent. So that you and you Pisces speckling and the gradients right this is what I'm saying. Like. This is what they've what they're pitching here. It does not seem possible in terms of like current video standards. So I'm just saying like I want to see this person how is it being done like even like if you go to this to the vertical that you linked to, there's a what is it a a panther a there's a there's a some sort of wild cat on the TV and perfectly opaque it's a black cat and yet around it, you can see it through to the environment. So I wanna I wanNA know what they're doing if this is just smoke and mirrors advertising Apparently the not bring it to the US. So it's GonNa be really hard for me to see. This is why us was fun and interesting and there will be no in person next year so. Maybe years I'm sure someone over. is in Korea or in Taiwan will be able to shoot some store in store video of it and watch it on Youtube. Guess. All right. Let's move on to our next segment S-. Oh, it's not technology we're doing a pop culture. Speaking of canceled events newer. Khan. Unfortunately, they had to make their announcement I think everyone expected it. It will be not in person this year they're doing a virtual version. No meet UPS at job at center this October, thanks Kobe. Thanks. America. But the news stills coming movies are still being made pre production, a lot of things including. Tree on the third. This is interesting. Garth Davis. Okay I mean I'll be there. I'll be there. This is fantastic. I have no idea what to expect I did not see lion but now I want to it's not a science fiction film. It's a drama. Yes I know it was extremely well received. So I I you know interesting apparently like the thing that's most intriguing to me is apparently he was pursuing this like he was after this project and then finally the executives after months of convincing they gave in. So apparently he really wants it it's not like you know he he could care less about it. So I'm excited he's the right age. He'll be turning forty six this year, which is just right for heavy enshrined in the theater when you were you know a Tina. Young teen and that's exciting. I can't wait to see what freshman brings to it. The question is, will they continue the storyline? Who Cares Nobody cares okay. Look I shouldn't say that because clearly people you care about lower deck's so. I. The most amount of shared the Germans rough ever on this podcast. Casually I think people go to see Tron for the aesthetics they go to Cetron because it is a different thing where like people go into computers. That's all people want people want to see the neon aesthetic and you're saying? It could be an anthology type series where it doesn't. You know the world that that was created that Flynn created. Is just exists now and does need to be tied to Tron legacy or the legacy of those characters. Oh I would absolutely. Absolutely I think people go for you. It could be a foreign language film and people wouldn't care. So it's like you go to see. What happens in what it looks like I don't I don't. I don't know if people are really tied to the character so much as they are to the aesthetic in just like the the. The VIBE. And the rules of the the visual language right and the and not just the visual language, but the rules of the eighties interpretation of what it meant for. A digitalization of a human right because you've seen the matrix, it can't be the matrix where it's. You know you're uploading your brain and it can't be the singularity. It needs to be this kind of abstracted. Now, a bitten is a character or programs. Aren't reputable in the same way. Now, they are individual personalities which doesn't really work with the way when resent software but the way it was told through Tron and tron legacy. Those are the kind of rules of Tron, I guess so it's really about. Games are actually life and death like that. It's that aspect of vendors game and and ready player. One that Tron did that is like it stands the test of time and now nowadays with so many people now embracing video games like I think, it could appeal to an even greater audience And even like the you films which by the way are fantastic. We had no idea I finally watch them with our family over the past couple of weeks like their rate. There are surprisingly good and it again is just like taking video games more seriously, and this is an extension of that. I think you've tapped into the exactly why Disney wanted to green light this they saw the success of Tramonte were again they took something that people a lot of fondness for, but didn't need to continue that story and they modernized it in a way that's relevant to. Gamers understand you know video game culture and the rules of video games and it was a massive success not say the Trans can be comedy or starring the Rock. Or Kevin Hart and this case it's could essentially be jared LETO but it can. It can be it can it's a store that can be modernized with like you said those steaks of programs and games being. Life and death. Well, we had that kind also ready player one. You know maybe maybe those have a shared DNA. Couple of trailers out HBO Max's trailer for a show called raised by wolves. This is really Scott, directed and produced on a chance to watch chiller Very Moody Atmospheric Scary I'm interested in watching this This is A. parable in which in a future humanities. A cataclysm from a great war and androids raise children. A androids may be evil there. Some unknown force on this off world planet cost very much stylistically like a release Scott thing in the vein of Alien Covenant Oh. Wow, this looks pensive. Yeah. An HBO spent a lot of money on this what unfortunately does not look expensive. NETFLIX's has a new space show called away. It's from the crater Friday night lights it's about it starring Hilary Swank about the first crewed missions Mars three, your mission, and while essentially it's going to be about that. It is more I think about the human drama feels mark. ABC. ABC TV show about the the the toll, the emotional and the human toll of the crew of astronauts. International crash carts, and being separated from their families. What happens on earth in the three years? So a little bit different flavor than. apples for all mankind but space show on. No I don't think there's probably going to be a single laser beam in this one no need some laser beams in my Sifi. It's hard Scifi it's traumatic size just the backdrop in the same way that comedy is the backdrop for the comedy of Lower Deck's Jerry. Okay? A new announcement one perfect shot all this twitter account. Yeah it's it's interesting because. I think it's just some guy who likes movies that does a twitter account and now it's being spun off into a major series will got spun off into a big websites. A massive website that reviews movies did you essays? Making and so it started off as a small team of people. One Guy. Count Screen. Cap's literally screen captures of beautiful stills from films that people resonated with and in submitted made us missions to got a lot of followers. Now, they really dive into the artisan autography and rejuvenate who director who did Zama, as well as time and doing new God's for DC She's GonNa be producing TV, show on this twitter account and website that isn't just talking about individual shots and films, but apparently will find a way to enter those shots and critically examine the summers heart of those seeds they're talking about three sixty degree renderings of these shots which. Leads me to think they're going to be taking like it. It'll be different people every week like the famous directors come on and talk about their favorite shots right in this little must probably give the directors or the producers. You know a few months heads up on the shot they wanna do that then has to be imported into some sort of cad program and modeled so that they can stand inside of it move around within it and see shots aspects of that shot that maybe weren't even visible to the camera. I mean that's really interesting to me and you we've seen. annotations on shots like this any fares, a great series on Youtube where they records and director photography to analyze shots film talk about what's behind the frame, the camera, and we're the lighting is and the situational Madea of really first person accounts of the making of those iconic scenes This feels like an opportunity to use technology like mandatory on the volume right where they can engulf a person in a representation of the set that day. As opposed to physically building set in augmented reality, you can actually have rendered in real time if this space that would cause, you can light it with lighting. So you're talking about like having giant screens that surround the P, the the stars of the show that they could then like the camera could then move around and said they actually, it wouldn't be a three D representation, but it would sort of almost look like. I'm imagining that this is one way you could do it. If it's a three representation, then you've gotta do some mixed reality, right how you going to put the host or put these talk I in the space to point out things in interact right? Otherwise it's just the three D. model turnaround that. Voice over that's not a problem. These days like Neil degrasse Tyson does it all the time on Cosmos just Step into a virtual environment green screen. It figured out it also sounds a lot like what wills doing with the food show except for movies as opposed to video games, recreating locations virtual environment in a virtual environment. In having an be able to break commentary over anyway, looking very forward to it. I'm fan of that twitter account and the website. So great for great concept last two BITs Alamo Draft House in Austin the theater chain is GonNa Start Offering Private? Eater rentals. Now the back catalogue of films listed at forty films. Some classics some relatively modern ones like wonder woman but. And Fifty Dollars Will you and twenty nine other friends up to thirty people take up the theater to watch a movie and you have to spend about one hundred and fifty dollars also in snacks about three hundred dollars all in ten dollars a person but. A space a safe contained. The view experience I. Think it's a great idea. It's actually a good deal like in terms of a movie ticket ten bucks plus food I mean that's a good idea. So is if you have twenty nine friends and you WanNa get a movie theater together and go watch something, I would imagine that thirty people is the like sanctioned limit for yourselves ring in place and gatherings in the cities where this as opening and it's only opening in two cities right now I hope expanded we've Alma dropped house in San Francisco one thing I don't like though is because this is supposed to be an extended like living room type experience they're allowing people to use. Do whatever you want. You can use your phone, do it on your phone. Sure but if I'm going to the Alamo Draft House for the Alamo Draft House experience a want them to enforce their policies. No bones. You have got to be kidding me the Alamo Draft House. Is a frequent sham they project this. This image of they are. So if so much respect for the film that they couldn't possibly allow anybody to talk or or use their phone during the actual movie, and then they proceed to walk around the entire theater throughout bringing people, French fries and drinks, and taking orders and turning on lights so that people can read the menu. It's Come on during the climax of a film hypocritical A. Policy that I have ever seen in in theaters and I do not approve. Let's file this under with things that you. Say with back in the future. And if you're up in Washington, I want to say was it or Oregon where the last the ending blockbuster is still in operation as a private vigil until business just using the name blockbuster, you also an opportunity in September to rent it for a slumber party as a SLEEPOVER IS A. Blockbuster, it's weird promotion. It's not an ongoing thing. They're GONNA DO BUT they've set up a little bedroom in the middle of the blockbuster. where? You could have a slumber party. And as of August seventeenth one, pm, reservations will go up and you can reserve for either September eighteen nineteenth or twentieth. This is in Bend Oregon only residents of that county. If the prove your reservoir county are able to make a reservation. I didn't know that that I, like that aspect of it then it's actually it actually they're not. It's not a money grab necessarily then it's not it's not an auction either like they clearly upset the price on this. That's cool. I'm glad that this because it is a neat component of that town I mean you have quite a movie selection? Do you sleep that night? You don't Binge Watch all night long. I've made a reservation at the a blockbuster is need to get the bed. What are these movies? No no step all night. In fact, I would sleep heavily the day before so that I could make the most out of staying up all night and swapping out the Jessica's getting pizza. Yes it's a it's a it's actually it's an LB. It's a location based experience in a blockbuster I was. That's funny because I was actually assuming that you turn at midnight and you're. Talking, you're showing Your Age Jeremy Enjoy, the SOFA. Bed. That that's a different type of experience. Do you WanNa? You WanNa Replicate Sleeping on the SOFA. All right. That does it for the podcast this week. Sorry, we have no mon of science ashore will be back next week as we as well. But we do have a new altro for you all this week anything to promote anything you want to be shot up to before we wrap it up no, no watched gemology guys. You know it's not half bad.

Is Chris Wondolowski a Top 10 player in MLS history? Winners & Losers in Wk 12

"You're listening to extra time riven by continental. Oh my goodness. I mean what are we doing here? His foot. It's great that everyone can give their union. Absolutely ridiculous. Five me, five me. I don't care more to drain my Bank account, everybody up here every single day goes into the office into the laboratory try to cook them some great stuff you guys. That's why he's here from New York, New York. You are listening to extra time to ribbon by continental from the AT and T studios in midtown Manhattan. I major we'd be with my partners in soccer, Charlie Davies, David Goss, Matt Doyle, it's the starting lineup boys because Kaelin cars, he can't be on a actually. He's importsuth enjoying the sunshine, so congratulations. But still firing off congratulatory tweets to one, Chris Wondoloski, who is the new ima less goal king. We have a big show for today, but nothing is more important than that one. So after six months of chasing, six months of being one goal behind is that one forty eight. That's because he exploded for four goals against the sugar doing all do it. Yeah. Go by four. Yeah. Four touches and has only four touches the way that Wanda does it. We're gonna talk to one in just a second. That's our AT and T called the field on this show. We twelve winners losers. Everything you need for Major League Soccer this weekend. The provisional rosters are out for the Gold Cup. You can check those out tongue calf dot com. We're gonna talk, the US we're gonna talk Canada. And once they start getting pared down. We'll start talking everybody else because there's a ton of animals involvement in this one. And then, of course, we have the mailbag, and we have to jerseys to give away the black trash bag of swag is here. It is waiting. Yes. It's we don't know what's in there. The, the occasion for you actually remember in. See it actually lines up with me remembering to set my fantasy lineup. So in a right of patch passage, excuse me. The last two weeks, I have forgotten to set my fantasy not only Annecy team suffer everyone in our audience. I what do we have yourself anything anything good in the mail back? We got a little good Wanda stuff. We've got some Dallas talk. We've got people complaining about the things we choose to talk about more than once for more than one side in eight different angles. Let's start with one that one's for me. Yeah. No, it's actually not. Thank you. Can we just can? We just say congratulations. This guy is a Disney story. Chris Wondoloski one hundred forty eight goals in Major League Soccer. He basically apparently played for his first five seasons. Seven goals. He didn't hit a thousand minutes until his fifth season. I mean he's pushing like mid prime Chris Wandel hausky, and he hasn't really done, anything and Major League Soccer yet. And then twenty ten hits twenty eleven hits twenty twelve is the MVP and the goonies arrive, and he just scores double digit goals from now until forever. And now he has four because all four these goals against Cal fire. Whereas first of the season, this is historic moment for Major League Soccer deal. You know, the history probably better than any of us your I may stay here right as right? As a history of Chris Wondoloski. He represents a lot of the things that. That we forget to look for in, in players because he's not the biggest strongest faster quickest. But his engine is always on. He's, he's always up for it. You know he has that mentality where game after game after game he's going to go out there and whether it's coming off the bench. Whether it's you know, starting whether it's playing on the right wing people forget this twenty ten. He won the golden boot playing kind of as a right winger whether it's playing as a second for it off guys, like Leonard in Alan, Gordon, or whether it's leading the line. Like he did this weekend Wanda out there and he's going to work his rear end off. And I, I believe that the ability to work hard is a skill that is a skill that not everyone has he has that and then beyond that one does a better athlete than people give him credit for the not fast, quick big strong stuff. Still applies. But how many times have you ever seen him get sort of wrong-footed by abounds? It doesn't happen a lot because he's so balanced. He he'd never his momentum. Never gets away from him. And he scored so many goals in his career on simple finishes that are actually that simple. Because his feet are so soft and so quiet and he's able to just put the ball in the back of the net. I it's, it's nice to see him get rewarded because he's earned it every step of the way he's absolutely earned. One Forty-six is basically want to do a lot of what you're talking about. Which is boggles the goalkeeper David said, catches that nine hundred and ninety nine times out of a thousand the other time that he drops it, nobody's there and it's no big deal picks it up. And nobody remembers it in this case Wando standing right there. He's ready. He pokes foot out and he scores a goal. It was the perfect way for him to do this, not about a forty yard laser beam. It's not about a solo run, Charlie. Take me behind the scenes as a professional goal score. When you look at Chris Wondoloski. What he's done. Doyle, says balance all these kind of intangibles. What do you see? He has the ability to make defender think he's gonna move one way or another. And then all of a sudden, sharply change direction, get in front of a defender getting your post which a lot of Ford's don't necessarily do he does it to perfection. And then the technique of just always putting his shot on goal. You can't score if you're not hitting the goal, so regardless of if he's getting a rebound finishing rebound whether he's getting a loose ball. Every time he shoots. It's on goal. And then he's, he's, he's clinical so his technique to be able to, to bend it around the goalie I've, I've been with him and, and you say, all right, let's put it top right corner, top of corner, every single time he can put it top. Right. Or top left. So he has the ability to put the ball where he wants to put it. When you look at the little things as far as balanced technique, making alluding defender making tricking the defender, getting in the defenders mind, and then. Playing with a passion to make sure that guys wanna feed you the ball guys wanna see exceed that's Wando because he's always team I. So when you look in the locker room who's the guy that's happy to be here that wants to be around. Everybody wants to have a good time. It's Chris allow sqi so when he goes on the field Gaza, like get him the ball. We want him to score. And when you see him celebrate it's always with the team. It's always with passion. The first thing he does nine times out of ten point to the guy who just vice thing. I want to have the assist to one though, because, you know what spotlights a great guy. But he's, he's gonna make sure like you got the credit to it's not just me. So before we get to one. We'll talk to him in just one. Second, dave. Where is he sort of in legal or like, as you look at one DOE? And you think about how you might remember him how you think about him now. Where does he fit in most history? He's at the top of the goalscoring, I don't think that'll change anytime and he should be in the conversation as one of the best performers and Major League Soccer history. Whether he's the best player the best athletes, the top ten on time, but let's start. Okay. On the data at the Roger here he deserves to be in the conversation. One hundred percent. And when you talk about what this league means I think he's a great story because you left college, and you went to your because you had that talent Brian McBride could have done that Eric Wynalda did do that one allow ski stayed here and worked hard because he wasn't getting scouted out of division. Two college soccer to go play in the Netherlands, or wherever give Chico say the shadow. Yeah. And then he worked and worked and worked and stayed alive in state a part of the game in this league exist. And he's able to create opportunities for himself and up being the all time leading goalscorer, which is not something that would have been possible without Major League Soccer and it's a great story to show all players like this is what you can accomplish. I don't know if he's in the top ten. It's a tough conversation to have because then you get into how long, do you have to play in Major League Soccer for you to be in that, you know, you look at guys like Alemi role and just two years. But now how many years is Joseph gonna play Juvin co my criteria's three full seasons and less and you're just basing the their their performance with an MLS, not in Europe now with national team, the top ten players of all time, anomalous with the minimum of three years, and you're only solely basing their performance within MLS in those three years, you guys MO that figured out your top figured on your head, and we'll get there. Okay. All right now it's very TNT call to the field. We're chatting with major league soccer's new goal king one hundred forty eight and counting. Chris wand allow ski congrats Chris welcomed extra time. Having me. All right. Let's just get started. Men, four one touch goals to go down in history, the floodgates opened for you just take us through the entire night. How you were feeling how the game progressed what happened afterwards. This was one of those moments that goes down in MLS history. Still is moments all kinds, like a bit of a blur. I remember the goals, very vividly the game. But it's just the, the lead up, you know, unfortunately Danielson picked up injuries day before game. And so the hamstring problem so yeah. Wasn't sure if I'll get the start until he wasn't able to pass the test. Started on the personal pass. I salinas. And you know been able to on the end of a few of his passes and been very grateful that he's, he's been at my longest tenure team. And I think ever instead of those fun to kinda share that with him, and then the rest kind of all kinds blurred. Remember, you know, all rebound remember Christian, that's not getting taken down. But the ball just fallen to me right there. And then Jackson you'll put it on a platter. And with a great passes, well, and so just kind of right place, right time. Wando Charlie here was going on. I'm great quick question. So you haven't been getting consistent starts this season. Your name to be in the starting eleven. Did you wake up in the morning and thing, today's the day today is my day I have that feeling that I'm gonna step on the field? And I'm going to score not only gonna score, I'm gonna have a field day break this record and do what I do best score goals. I driving visualizing you know how the fun go. And I really did have a special feeling about it. Even putting the wife says you lucky. I think they've Dan, so was no different. A lot of confidence. I've been enjoying this year so much just kind of reinvigorated new passion, and, you know, new fire, even though not necessarily in the minutes, I have, but I still love this team of. And so it was just kind of the things where I wanted to do my part, I wanted to be a part of kind of been able to turn a corner, these past five games or so. And wanna do my part and I was. Kind of the main main idea visualize visualization coming into it. If you want any other predictions take, you know, we'll throw out there. Let us know. I've learned to listen to her. She's. Talking about the you said, reinvigorated for a lot of people out there looked like maybe pressure, because you're sitting on the record and we see so often in sports, it just starts to build in Bill. Did you not feel that where you're not thinking about a week in and week out? I mean. Yeah. Was you know, I think that for each game each day, I put on the pressure myself more than anyone can or does. But I think to be honest, especially at the end of last year being close and having games where the playoffs I was playing the game for the wrong reason playing to score not to win to do my job, not to, you know, do the little things, and I've definitely found out that throughout the throughout my career is that it's almost like homerun derby, when you try to hit home run. But ten when you don't when you're not able to do that. And we'd go out there and try to put a good swing on it. That's when it comes to happen. And learn for myself is when I start trying to do the little things fight for balls by for, you know this year in the box and key possession. And you know, playing one to keep it simple. I find that have myself more chances than not. And so it's I don't know. It's kind of been able to change that a little bit. Did you come to the realization about the way you were playing yourself because I remember Matisse? Mehta's said he said to you in preseason. Don't think about the record care about winning more, which didn't make a lot of sense. All of us because scoring goals is kind of what you do to help the team win. Yeah. You know. And I think that definitely helped you know, absolutely love what he's done in like I said, I think he's being night as passionate. He his one of his main messages is go out in joy this game this game. You know, you guys are so fortunate that you get to play a game. And, you know, definitely goes by quick. But enjoy every minute of it, and especially someone who has such a great passed and no sisters more than but also the game and knows what is it's all about it. It's, you know it's nice and I think that has been able to lean on him. And have, you know someone in my corner who knows what kind of go through? And so it's, it's been great to have that. And I really do. Enjoy what he's done with our team record. I do not believe Matteo, so Mehta when he says he predicted this no chance no way too convenient afterwards into say he pegged the four goals. He did not mention this to you, right. I mean he he's like the checks. Balances here off. Either down to that came out for getting. I don't know the guy doesn't know what he's talking about most of the time so fast him, and he don't crazy prediction, sometimes. But molester. Why don't you go? I wanna know Chris, how you celebrated this. I'm imagining a lot of different scenarios. None of them is really the cliche kind of bottle popping scenario. You set this record, you're at home, friends and family. You go do what? Yeah. I'm kind of a lame guy. Actually, we're supposed to go up to a Kevin Arnold, which is about two hours away in the foothills of the Sierras, and we were playing on going. We had early game. We're playing going there and since we have a late game late practice on Monday with deal the spend, you know, few days up there and hike around at calaveras big trees and things like that. But I all that thing. Everything happened took awhile to get out of walk room. And then I found out, I got to go to the sharps game last night or yesterday. And so I kind of threw it out. So it actually turned into having door dash, you know, delivery sushi at the house. Definitely got to celebrate with some round who over nice open a good bottom line. And that was not too exciting. I'm planning on. We have a long trip, east and Toronto DC. And so I told the team that we all get celebrate then together but. Oh, then sorry. You're not one who's goes out there and a super flashy. But at this point now, you gotta start like signing cards. You gotta start, you know, getting business cards that say like MLS all time, goalscoring leader, I king show up wearing a crown maybe. Pal. At least every pre-game warm-up, just come out with the crown. Yeah, that's about idea. I would see what I can do. Yeah. I keep Bill, my but yeah, I don't know. I don't look gritting hats. All right. Just sit on throne. You sit on a throne in the locker room. You're good headwear. Headwear headwear Landon Donovan, the who's who of US soccer of North American Soccer came out to congratulate you Rolodex at this points, got to be pretty deep given the US national team and all these years in the league. What is the coolest message that you got? And it doesn't have to be the biggest name, it might be the one the teammate that you didn't think about or the guy who hit ship out of the blue or whoever it might be the family friend who was it. I mean I been so fortunate, I've actually had a ton of messages, which I'm very grateful for one woman, really surprising, David Beckham, put me on his Instagram story and congratulate me and I still. That's crazy. Having a message. I still think that trays that both those guys even know my name and know who I am. One of my favorite messages, who is reported on Burling Allen, Gordon, and Sam Cronin. And so. The. And this is the trend in. Crease, one of the hardest things for most professional athletes is to stay on the field to stay healthy enough, how you managed to do that, to put yourself in a great position to break this record and to continue to keep going. Yeah. Been very lucky with injuries and not having million very fortunate. I love the Cheney staff that we've had they've checked me health, even you know, on the field, even when I'm not always say that my hundred percent but also like to joke with them. Is that if you don't have, you know, big muscles, or if you're not fast, you can't pool many months? You're not fast. They like to go about men. I'm not explosive injured all the time. I got to figure this out enough with no, the Chris one. Staying healthy is a big part of it getting on the field. In the first place is a big part of it. And in your story is really wanna perseverance you didn't become a regular starter till twenty six twenty seven years old. What do you say to, to younger players? Or what would you say younger players who who aren't a similar situation at like during that period? Was there ever a time where you're like you know what? This isn't for me. I'm gonna hang it up. Wasn't this time that, you know, you always wanted out there you always want to playing, but I was so fortunate to have the locker room, the United who Houston win to MLS cups and not get to learn from Wayne. They were sorry. Oh, and Brian chain, as you know, Stuart Holden's in our locker room and find Molin guys taught me how to be a professional both on and off the field in, you know, you always think ready, but then I'm looking back. I'm like, wow, I was nowhere near ready and got my shot too early. You know, wasn't ready for it, and whatever, you know, not been able to, to do cannon show, and might not still be in this league. And with a perfect storm where I need a little time to mature, both mentally and physically in it finally happened and got at the right time. And, you know, I picked the coaching staff and Don mcnew, John Spencer. You know, I think I've learned so much for them those those first year, but my off. One news. Thanks. Thank out. Forgive me Shanshan, I put the outfit and give me a regular time and I think that, that helps a lot as well as once you the funny thing once it starts, it can snowball and degrade. But if it isn't worth indicated the, you know, the work of the way as well. So it's a fine line. At one forty eight. Right now think Kamara is the closest active player at one nineteen. So he's a ways back. Joseph martinez. A scoring a ton of goals now that you have the record. It's about keeping the record. Have you done any scouting? Have you put any thought into who might be chasing you and how long you own this thing? I think that record or always to be broken, and it will be broken eventually and exciting to, to pass the message on to them. You know, I think just Martinez, you know, plays in three years this leaks. Do. Wait. What he's doing. Is is unreal? And the whole land of team is mazing where they play they play the game, and think play the on fast paced. I, I would love market do it because we actually played against each other and divisions you went to zero and so we're in the same conference. And so even though he was a freshman and I was near he, it was pretty cool to, to do that. I got to play with him in Houston and reserve team was pretty sacked we reserve team. And so it was play with him and get to know him defend the pass to him. All these conversations where people talk about legacy one. What do you hope your legacy is what do you think you're gonna see is? Our question. I my hope and my, he was bad just be considered as one of the most competitive team. And a good teammate. You know someone that you'd want to team with and want to share a locker room with, you know, I think one of trait that has helped me in many ways is in competitive and you don't can't off even in the plane with my daughter's playing the game. You know can't can't win win right now. It's just something's wrong with that. I still love it. I still enjoy it by the, you know, I think that's something that I wouldn't mind eating thing labeled as Chris, I'm not sure if you've seen it, but on Twitter, I put out this interesting question, who is the greatest American strike of all time and land, and does not fit into this category. So if you're looking at at work as a whole club and country who are your top three top three. Wow. On Bill Clinton's and the plane is not available. Clint does number one just body of work, you know, doing an abroad, donate with the country, doing for club doing an amber less. Premier league. He's just amazing giving him. And to he just had something some in that innate ability to do amazing things and shelf in big games and going. I have him as number one most of kind China by high. Yep. No McBride Ryan, the Greider as number two, and then I mean in again just a fancy those watching him with the clash and what he did with the US go. Eric Wynalda, Eric Wynalda three. Okay. All three from the man himself. Exactly. But there's nobody that has more goals in Major League Soccer than Chris wanted, allow ski stands alone, at number one Wanda. It's been a pleasure to watch you honestly, grow up in this league and become the player that you are in the man, the yards been a pleasure. Congratulations. Keep it rolling. We'll be watching. Okay. Congrats men. Thank you guys. Appreciate all, you've got to a little bit of takeout sushi, and a bottle of red. That's the Chris one allows he celebration method for his new record. Then I think he'll own for a long time. We said last night, maybe just Martinez. He threw that name out there, Kamara maybe but maybe not man, he can hold this for a long time. And, and we're talking about top ten players in history and legacy. I think of Wando sort of in the category. Of I wanna say, you know, like Dejan crisis, or the Jeff Cunningham, or maybe the high Merano even where you almost a find a club and your goals did. And you were the crux of that club. No, he doesn't have the championships. Yeah. Because Cunningham moved around, like a million bounced around twelve insight, just a revs lead. So. More so than like, where's he fit in history that doesn't really matter? That's all opinion. I think Wando is literally a Disney movie. He is, you know, who's who's gonna play Wando in the like miracle on grass story where the guy goes the cheek. Oh, stay, nobody believes in him, he hangs out and things about leaving the game. And all of a sudden it becomes the best goalscorer in that league's history. That's one dozen like an off shucks way. Redmond to beautiful story. I don't either really just glossed over the Danish, Iran. Right. Any plane? What's his name, the scientists, and the other movie, Eddie? Red main, any red main. Yeah. You, you were you were close. No idea. Yes. Yeah. Okay. Better. We could get somebody better. What do we think? Four one two zero six zero. The part to a Brit. The key? That's that's pay him Tam to do it. Let's go last week twelve let's hit our winners, and Dave, you were at red bull arena. You saw Tom Barlow future ham, player, tonsure, MLS goals, king, yes. Beautiful. While warriors sit up warriors, right? There are two. Those are second best team in Major League Soccer right to chose Martinez birthday. Yeah, that was cool. Heavy was out there. You know, starting fighting boom Tom Barlow's, the hero, this huge result for the rebels there big win. So I went to this game last year in September regular season. I also wanted the playoff games, but in the regular season, and it was one of the fastest Major League Soccer games I've ever been around like in the crowd, you could feel the speed the intensity and then you sit down for this one and they both talked about it. But the way land is played so far this year in the white red bull's having going. I didn't really expect it and like twenty five thirty minutes of the game. I could feel that. I was physically on the edge of my seat like tents and you looked around everyone else felt that as well. And it was just like there wasn't a second to breathe out there on the field and it wasn't the prettiest game. But I texted, Bobby, it was just like this game is so maybe not clean word fast. Like you could feel it in the stadium unfortunate, then Tim Parker gets a red card, which I think is the correct call. And then game James the game but credit to red bulls that they genuinely believe they were going to win that game from that moment on, and I think there's something to be said about Atlanta, where you put Sean Neil Assam retire at centerback, and you're thinking yourself, simply you gotta pass side to side and start to pull them out and move them, and they never did that first single moment. But for rebels this is like the red bull to this is what they've built their show. Neil draft pick has led red bull sue and minutes this year. So he's able to play when he gets on the field in his first few molest games. Tom Barlow draft pick. Didn't sign to steal they build them up. He came on for Brian white. He didn't come on for Bradley wright-phillips visit team. That's missing the twenty six. Twenty seventeen last year. Twenty eighteen defender of the year, they're missing Bradley Phillips, their all time leading goalscorer, and they just soul Tyler Adams and they're in six. It's not where they want to be in the standings. But they're still getting it done. And it's all with guys who've come through their system to some extent. They've won four out of five to, to, to be fair to Atlanta United. This was their fifth game in fourteen days. It's all fifth game in fourteen days and then fly back from Vancouver, one goal in the shadow true. Because over the winning streak is over teen of yoga, though he had a lot of energy after the whistle. I mean he played a full ninety and he's still. He's coming for Kemar Lawrence be g g wear your shirt's like that. Like what all the way Paul I did. I did. That claude. Not only would show in Charlie tattoo, big Wyan. But like we talked about yesterday for me. The concern was the aggressiveness of Atlanta United, you need to go for your up, man. Put on more another attacker put on Mario Williams earlier him run up there with Joseph Martinez, for me, there, wasn't an impetus to go out there and get three points when you, especially when you're up trust me, I've been there and rebel arena. We're up man in the first half and we lost red bull. It's a difficult place to play especially if you don't go for it, and I felt like then we didn't go for and watching them Atlanta yesterday. I felt the same way this was a team that, that just didn't have it. You could tell the look tired. They looked a little bit worn out and they weren't aggressive in for me. That's the concern, the sub is brick shaped for Parker's that is the tactical genius that you're, you're gonna make as a substitution in a game where you're up in, but it shouldn't take tactical genius. You've got PT Martinez, the South American. You've got jar. To nagy. You've got an MLS veteran in Jeff Lorenzo. You have guys who should know you want me to sign it stops a fair point I should know how to break down when your man up agreed. But when you see it's not happening, then put on a striker put on an attacking player. But the three in the back of the McGill last year, but last year, a team with two centrebacks out like this, they probably run the red bulls, not the red bulls. But that's the difference between this year last year. There was a certain killer instinct that like a split second flipped it on. Whereas this feels like building up to a building to building up to the they've never they remind me of last year. Sounders in that way in the first half of the season. Everything Seattle did was so slow, and so mechanical building from like they never did in one touch, what preferring to take four five six. And so they were always attacking static defenses. If you look at the biggest difference between Lanna last year in Atlanta this year. They missed Miguel me wrong, but. Like they take so many touches, and they take so long to go from the back to the front that they're never attacking a scrambling panicking defense. They're always going at banks four four five one five in the box. They're always going at something like that drunkard. It's, it's really hard to break that down. I don't care. How many you know, fifty million dollar players you have is really hard to break that down. We have not given Tom Barlow enough credit for this header by the way tough angle with wish diving away jumps up. Looks you quote someone in your article like a week or two? And what should happen? I think you might have said behind the scenes that you now, now it's on record. MLS. So would you so now that you saw Tom Barlow and his performance? Does he jump ahead of Brian white now because white shown over the last four games that he can give you the performance? But I think Barlow might have a higher ceiling be just purely based on lettuces and they said, he's the fastest guy in the club, and he's one of the best show, shocks me does look like he looked. He will guy can I need to see cowboy? I'm gonna look like he didn't look like head. He didn't look like he had breakaway speed. They've told me that, that it was not a great moment for Brad news on who did particularly mobile as a as a goalkeeper as he would want to be in that situation. But that headers ridiculous going away from the goal at a sprint and he angles back and it's actually the English on back inside that spins kind of looks like he thinks it's going across the face of goal, which might also because he couldn't get there. Anyway. Props, Tom Barlow the rebels. This was a good game. It would not have gone down to ten v eleven but it was. I think you're right, the right call. One more to throw out, though is Joseph's breakaway in the first half that he doesn't put away entire goes to ground in pokes. It away. It's just a chance, you know, Joseph's can score last year into add on that it's the couple of breakways at PD Martinez had coming out from the midfield. It was three twos. Two v. One its this past alma row, new when Joseph was going to cut across the centre backs and they don't have that relationship because he hits Joseph early. So Joseph has is like trying to take it while he beats centreback or he never makes the pass, and you without me Ronin him. You knew around thirty five forty yards from goal Joseph was gonna cut across the center back. He was gonna play it in his path one touch cynical issues for Atlanta, but hey five wins in a row. Five shutouts one loss at rebel arena is nothing to sneeze at one hundred and forty eight is how many goals, Chris Wondoloski has one is how many wins the Colorado Rapids have. And they're your winter dwell more specifically pork Smith. We have crushed the Rapids GM over the last couple years, especially heading into twenty eighteen in the team. He assembled by overpaying for a, a lot of those Brits that. And some of the day on Mon wants to I ball second ball gets stuck wants to wants to play. Chris Wondoloski in the movie, but like credit to him for learning from his mistakes. He went out and he's rafted. Well, he got Andreessen cheeky who just got a second game winning goal of the season and looks the part of energetic young forward, who he could bring it off the bench win out in actually got an interleague loan for Laois Abu Bakar, which is a, a player acquisition method that is now off. It used in vogue in MLS. They need they desperately needed a centreback, who could do basic centreback things, and also Bacher did that and the Rapids pitched a shutout LA. They got the first one of the season this worst start in MLS history is, is over for them. And if you look at this team, they're not going anywhere this year. This is a team is going to struggle to reach thirty points, but they have good young pieces and these guys are going to get a lot of run. And they're going to set up to be better in twenty twenty provided that culturally this team can learn from their mistakes. Make good higher. Spend those. Dp slot wisely. Dp slots are open that was poor big thing when he came on extratime head coach. That's the immediate higher. They gotta figure out. I'm gonna stick in the Rockies for my winner rail Salt Lake three. Oh, we do not talk about them enough. Also, I just wanna know Sam Johnson runs on. We time, Bobby worshiped will like that reference, because I'm about twenty minutes late to just about everything I do. And apparently so Sam Johnson. He did not play did not start this game. He had a he had a he spoke, not flatteringly about his the ball. He made a couple of weeks ago. And Mike Pecci had public words for him about that. And then in the, you know, he shows up twenty minutes late and okay. If you do that for showing up late for a team meeting your on the bench and you better hope that if you're benched in that situation. Your team doesn't come out actually perform better without you. Which they did. So here's the question, though, for real Salt Lake who are the exactly because if you go look at their results, it's kind of got a split there. One side is bad teams. They beat those bad teams Vancouver, Orlando at Cinzia Colorado, Toronto on short rest, without Josie outdoor and Puello getting a red card. They lose at sea Dallas at Seattle Atalay home to Portland What is this team? Exactly right now, it'd be a feel for. We also lake or is that entire feeling of not having a feel. This is the same thing they've been finish. It's unpredictable. Oil you don't know what are? So you're going to get on any giving game day some days. They look phenomenal. When you have demeer cry lack looking like a box to box midfielder. Sometimes he looks like a phenomenal. Striker. You have Severino sometimes look like a dynamic winger who's going to score goals and create goals every single game among one of the best league on some sun, give some given days, you have out, Albert snack looking like a, you know, one of the top playmakers in this league whether it's free kicks, whether it's dribbling opponents, whether it's finishes. So some days you get that, and some days, you get the ourselves gets beat five zero. I would argue that they are predictable in that it depends on the opponent. And that's what when you look and you put out who they played. But when you watch the game, and you watch them, Reuss, neck, and cry. Lock look like that against teams that aren't as good as them. So they're almost consistent in that. They're a probably five or six seed in the west right now. But maybe LAF see less last year in the playoffs there. That's fair. They gotta show like twenty five to, to also have the they have players who have high ceilings, they don't hit them consistently. And I'd say at five or six in the west. They beat the teams below. Them. And they look really good when they do it, which is part of it. Right. Is it's impressive. When Bo fo comes in and scores a goal like this, you know, cut scene. Beats guy. Curls at you're like, wow. They capable of this, but they don't do it against the teams above them. And so that's who they are like they're a middle of the road team right now, which isn't a bad thing, but they do have a higher ceiling because of the physical qualities, or the technical qualities of the players in the team. They just have not over the last three years ever put together a system or at least a mentality of being able to do it. We can we got no matter who they face consistency lacking. A little bit for also like this weekend. Three oh, you'll take that home all day. Oh, hundred he was among our losers for his double yellowcard. Outbursts, other losers on that front Yang quasi who went for it from half field when he could have just wasted time and probably got three points for sporting Kansas City. Instead Vancouver come back the other way and dare Cornelius scores a leopard a banger, get up there. Young man centrebacks doing their thing and then kindle Watson another loser. Me after he body slammed will mean Asana and then said afterwards he was like ran into me. He tried to take me down. It's like kindle, like we have the replays man like the age of video review. There's no reason to say this is an inexplicable moment. It was it was very, very entertaining for me before we get out here and get to a couple of other losers from the weekend. Charlie who is your winner. My winner is annoying revolution. And I'll tell you why. Well, one since they had a coaching change. They've had four points being San Jose at home and getting a draw on the road at Montreal. More importantly, it's hiring Bruce Arena to be the sporting director and head coach. Now, when you look at Bruce Arena and his body of work, although it's it's been a while. LA galaxy United he brings championships a winning mentality a culture. Now when you come into the office at New England of ocean everyone's thinking, wow. We're onto something. Big. We all have an idea that we want to win an MLS Cup. That's what you get when you get Bruce Arena. It's the importance of everyone understanding were going for the MLS Cup. That's the goal and he's going to show us how we get there as a group as a whole from everyone the locker room to everyone in the front office. That's exciting. And then you talk about a nutrient center, coming online and the recruitment tool that will be everything around the revolution. Everyone is buzzing about where this franchise is going in for me as a former player, it's like man what we could have done. Patted me have this awhile ago, but it's exciting. It's exciting times, and it states, the where the ownership view this club in and where they wanna take this club. Right. It's like we've given we're gonna give you all the funds you need to make sure that we can win less Cup. That's, that's what you want to hear. That's what you wanna see. And that's what the revolution have we talked to Bruce Arena, Charlie was on the show a few weeks ago, did not sound like no. And now I'm like. Jersey on and off. If you missed the Bruce Reihana, go, check that out. That's from last Thursday's show. David, I talked about kind of I think more of the positive side oil more of the, like this is a statement of intent, the revs are, are making a commitment to change to invest to push forward. When some people thought that they weren't actively doing that. I think that maybe we glossed over some of the more cynical sides of the Bruce Arena as if you're turning to me Sam stay skill. Never be negative. What's, what's the pitfall potentially here? What is an sure? Give me if you have positives give them to me. I mean, the positives are everything you guys said, like if I was if I was in the position, absolutely higher. Serena, I think it's a no brainer higher given what he's done in this league given that Charlie you've talked about this. The biggest problem with the revs has been their culture in the best thing about Bruce Arena is he fixes the culture of the locker room fixes the culture of the entire club. I think it's a no brainer higher. They had to do it. They were right to it. There are two questions. Can he win championships? If he doesn't have the biggest budget in the league, I mean, that's a, that's a huge one because we know he built a dynasty in DC Reno he built a dynasty in LA those teams were awesome. They were playing with more money than anybody. I can show you budget will not be an issue with Bruce in knowing the reser settling in his start competing with the likes of Atlanta. United Toronto FC than it really is a new day for that franchise in this league. And I can't wait to see. I would love to like give give birth. Serena Carlos villa or Sebastian Giovinco Miguel mirrow level players. Let's see what happens with that. That would be dope. That's question, number one, and like, okay, what is it? Okay question. Number two, is we've seen the game pass even some of the greatest managers in the world by we have seen we've seen great managers get passed by sport. A soccer both in this league and in others, and maybe it happened a little bit too Bruce Arena in twenty seventeen in World Cup qualifying. The game in Couva was a fluke, if you play that game one hundred times the US wins ninety nine of them, but by just surrendering central midfield in going one versus three in that situation on the road inequality fire. It made the margin that much thinner. I worry about that. And I worry that Bruce has every right to hire people. He trusts whether it's, you know, Matt Reese, Pat, Noonan, his son Kenya, like he, you know, bring Dave sarachan back, whatever, but I worry that coaches who have been around a long time and are set in their ways. Don't get new voices in there to challenge them and to make them think a little bit differently and to make them adjust to the way the game is played now in the game. And MLS is much different than it was in two thousand sixteen fair point. Yeah. When he was managing here and you mentioned managers being passed by in this league and around the world. I think in this league we're seeing because of the salary cap and the small margin between good teams in great teams and better teams than worse seems, especially in a playoff scenario. It's almost more important than what you see at times overseas, where you can just spend and Bill the roster and it can kind of go out there and it's also not a league where you look around, and you can't say sort of what is the identity here? There are a lot of projects that truly do have an identity. Now it's not universal. There's a lot of clubs that are still figured it out. Figuring it out. But the best teams have that. So how do you match up against Bruce Arena? If he gets the money, we know as the leadership, we know can figure out the locker, and we'll see what happens with the revs good to see a happy though. I like this happy like to see what that smile on the one little winner and end or timbers did not play this weekend, but they blessed. Their new log for the season because they haven't played their stadium. Yeah, this is this like religious or I don't know. Bring a father in there. Water on it or what I don't know, guys. Why don't you get at my face about this? I'm just saying the stadium looks epic. I saw the pictures from the inside with the little roof. Keep even more noise in I'll be there in September trip. And I'm Jillian sack of it's got the call from the analyst crew them jump on your flight. So you'll just Grammy a ticket awesome, but room and we'll just hang out perfect. Yeah. The two double beds. Yeah. Perfect queen. Nice. Keep it close Charlie's. Let's quickly run through some losers here, FC Cincinnati are going to be a loser for me, five one defeat to Orlando. Thanks you. That makes you loser here. But there is some news I throw them in there. I don't wanna just pile on Johann to may. I like the fact that he went just black tea on the sideline. That's a statement from him. Twenty nine year old keeping it real simple. I think anyone who goes Orlando and potentially, let's say covers something like the all star game should be able to dress. Exactly MLS coach would dress them, very interesting. It's can be hot a here. We are sitting here, wearing plain t shirts. I think we're on the next hundred matron all star. You are. Wow, also news out there. Jeff, Reuters reporting the ethic that they have found a GM from Zwolle and the design. Zeh. I'm not even to try to pronounce his name. It's right in the camp, it's not official yet. But it looks like it's heading in that direction and I'll break a little bit of news here. This is just whispers at this point, not a full on reports. But the name, I've heard mentioned for that, head coaching job is Philippe Coku. The former Dutch international was at PSV during the same era, where Frank devore was at I XE. Just spent a miserable season with vendor vodka in Turkey. Currently a free agent of a head coach. This is far from a done deal far as I can tell you know, where there's smoke there's fire, and I have to since you brought up the name, I have to go into my experience. With Lee win. Who was during the time that Coku and climate were there. I got the chance to go and visit him while I was on trial. I axe when I left Boston College, shut up to Boston College, VC but to, to talk to Lee about seeing Coku and Cliver every single day in what these guys bring and how they talked to Lee about, you know growing as a player what he needs to work on the philosophy. How they're just great guys. And I kept saying to Lee can you believe you're playing with these legends every single day in the locker room get to talk. He got to go play blackjack with clever and all the time casino and. This is awesome. So, you know, to see Philip Kokou interested in an less job. That is awesome. Because I know he's obviously play at the highest level in World Cups and he's a philosopher he thinks about the game and how to make people better and just his dealings with Lee. I know he'd be a great coach in this league fascinating to see guys like that. If he is hired by Cincinnati, get these opportunities and what they make of them to see, you know, you know, Ernie Stewart that was his background as well. Dutch league playing that same sort of director role billed the academy build the, the system figure out what your ego says, if this is indeed the higher, and then Coco's I mean, it's just it's a Petri dish that I wanted to sit around for, like three years and just watch twenty four seven. And again, it's not it's not necessarily done. Clearly, they are the they are interested in importing knowledge from the air to visit. I think it's very good. So you went from our Mace, there are masters of whispers. Yes. Do we need that? He's been around. So by you. Definitely be one of coin. Toilet expend a huge center. He's like a mix of Tyrian, and I'd say, I drink, and I just probably to another loser here for me crew ac- bad stretch of form on another loss this time in Minnesota, Minnesota didn't exactly look convincing in this one, but I think it is time ring the bell. I've said it from the beginning Berhalter era is dead and gone. It was long gone long gone. So now you're at the point, where are you going to lose this locker room? So it's at the point where guys are getting fed up gang frustrated not getting results. This is not there, the team that they envisioned long-term when you had Berhalter at the helm, we'll see how things play out because things have to change drastically. And when change comes it gets rocky a lot of times, especially when you're not getting the results and you had this previous experience of this is how we play this is who we are. This is the Columbus Crew. This is what I'm proud to be a part of right now. The results matching up Kim Puertas got a job to do this on the positive. Side for crew fans normally when Shelly says that on this show for weeks later, he comes on. Spending a bunch of money. Congrats in advance an interesting trade though, David com just acquired by the crew is now going to go of January first twenty twenty to Nashville. See, apparently they were trying to get a three way deal done. They were not able to do that. So David com is basically a rental for the crew, and they get what an international roster spot in, like fifty K, unallocated money. So there's your MLS trade that's reported after the deadline that's not actually going to happen until twenty twenty and you know, scratch your head trying to figure that one up. Let's keep it rolling here. I wanna talk union very quickly Doyle, because we had all these questions about where the union stand in the hierarchy of things, and it got me wondering what your top five power ranking is given that we saw Elliot dominate, but not quite get the result against Dallas. The Sounders nil nil with Philly in Philly. Just went there to get a result, which is something I don't think we would have said. Straight a bunker, they conceded, they just basically said, we want to get the point here on the go on the road and get a result out your top five in MLS right now. Gimme your power. One is Elliott see far away. I know they just got one one draw Dallas. But I, I don't care this team is. So obviously the best in the league and then too. I do think I have to give the edge to the union. Just think they're deeper and more flexible than the dynamo who are the other the other team right now who have a real, argument Sounders, aren't there for you Saunders fourth. Okay. So the Sanders have been, you know, the Sounders. They're, they're, they're deep and they're talented and they have nNcholas Darrow, one of the best and somehow still most underrated players in the league and Christian role. Don step forward, and they've dealt with injuries and all that they're underlying numbers aren't as good as I would want to see right now. I think read yeahs when he's fully fit Morris as well. Things fence in their missing Rodriguez. And they've had two games against LAF's e one of them down to ten men. So there are like there, there are some questions about how accurate the underlying numbers are. But I haven't been impressed watching the Sounders. I haven't been impressed by them in about two months. Okay. So L AFC at one union at to dynamo at three, they beat DC United at four you have the Sounders. And at number five. It's anybody's get landlord knighted. Okay. Yeah. They, they lost to the red bulls who I know they have been great this year, but the rebels are still in the coming off a seventy one point season. It was at home. It was Atlanta's fifth game in fourteen days they've given up one goal and what the past month and a half the they've won six out. They were on the one six eight Evan was Colorado at home Orlando at home. I mean you can only play who you have to play button. I mean that fifth one. They smoke sporting KC they smoked Toronto. Okay. The game was not great also KC team. That's barely getting training squad. I mean, you beat the team in, in front of it just goes through saying there would be the other one but they haven't gotten a good result CFC like. CFC for me the one that quietly like watch out, lost once with bare wish I wish Bobbi because, like I'm actually kind of Ihnen, and my CFC since they switched to that three or four three and got air into the line of bobby's, it Bobby over here on Thursday. We'll get his opinion on that one. The provisional rosters for the Gold Cup came out today. So all the different nations in the Gold Cup. They're forty man's these are all get cut down in the US case they're going to get cut down for the opening of training camp on the, the number right now is on Wednesday. We'll see another cut. Those are the folks that will be in camp, then they'll be twenty three man roster announced on June six and then it rolls into the tournament after that we will cover these in-depth after that dole you have a great column. Soccer dot com. Just a wonderful just a great website. No, no quotes from David Goss in this, that's sounds like a law. That's a weak spot for you. So go check that one out Canada has there's out as well. Eighteen molesters in that forty man squad candidate coming off four wins in the. Nations league qualifying with a goal difference of plus seventeen Affonso Davies a champion in Germany now. He's going to see if he can lead them at the Gold Cup any thoughts on those. Let us know. Let's get to the mail bag, four one two zero six zero extra time in soccer dot com. Shout out to our two winners. When I forget my fantasy squad I forget to give you swag, the first one here from two weeks ago. It was a call. Avid fan. 'em, Ken warr Mika are CF. I'm not sure. But is it man? Riccar James fan. Yes. So reaching here seal, we're giving this lucky Rapids fan of pulled one hundred eighty nine. Josie. Joe josie? One. That I saw. Yes. I have a jersey Charlie is secretly, a handwriting expert Charlie scene. Josie sign that credit card Bill. There's also true red stars Marcona one this week, one hundred seventy seven points and gain Orlando city signature, let me see this signed by anyone. We. It's, it's a beautiful purple jersey though for you. So gorgeous, Jerry. That's the way it works. We pull it out. That's what you get. You get fancy this. You win. Some loose on even know can't a hundred sixty points. That's pretty good. Nine points behind. I almost want to seventeen points behind. That's pretty good. That's pretty good. All right. If I win, what happens you don't get a jersey fan. Okay. Dan, in Vancouver wants to say hot, take Juan does the greatest American player in history. He's an underdog. He's hardworking. He's so humble, and he never gave up that as the plot of every feel-good movie in history. That's what it means to be an American soccer player Landon. Clinton. We're supremely talented. Their legacy is one of greatness, but also of potential unfulfilled Wando max out his potential to the nth degree on the greatest American of all time. Tell me I'm wrong. Dan from Vancouver, Dan. I don't wanna get upset with you. And I don't want to raise my voice, but that is absurd. That is absolutely absurd. Just so you know Clint Dempsey had to travel hours upon hours every week for trading sessions coming from nacogdoches Texas, middle of nowhere to train and work and. He may he maximizes potential and he went to the furthest places of the earth with the national team and he performed in English Premier League. And you re performed in Europe anti performed in three different World Cups with four goals total scored. You cannot tell me that he's not the greatest American player and doesn't embody what the American worker, thick is. And what an American means he played with the utmost passion, pride for the national team as most players do. But there's no there's no questioning. There's no question. What I I'm with you, there. But what I do is at one is getting his chance to shine and he's getting his place in history and one that he's earned and that he deserves as well. Could I also say that if it wasn't negative? I think it'd be less of it was just like Maper Ville. He traveled four hour Dallas. He's douse. No, don't just man, nothing. That's great storytelling. Eric in Westchester wants to know what's four goals. Three goals in the game is a hatchback. This happens fairly regularly Wando scores four, which is amazing. But what's that called looking through records? It looks like Raul de as ARCE scored four twice along with mama DR who also did it twice. However, d say did at first until someone does it three times. I say we call four goals scored in a game. And ARCE Wanda was one goal away a ham bone. I know we have to defer to run. Arce it would be the D as are setting. I don't think would just be ourselves. I mean you'd have to go being Mathis, although it should be. Cletus cletus. Five goals clear, settled, pound, the gavel, five goals anywhere in the world is a Cletus did I make up golden sombrero. I want to say, yes. Okay, cool. Let's move on. Love the show guys. But rationale for not talking about Vancouver's somewhat flawed. Since you talk about red bull's, New York so much, and they are similar in the standings, Vancouver, just admit you don't like the caps. I don't care the way. This is Paul from Portland. He says, he's definitely just trolling, you right there. He heard that outbursts you on Vancouver, nine with, and he just bring it back. He's how many supporters shields and conference finals from the last few years referencing push it, I keep going on the things we don't talk about this guy. But how is Philly not considered a winner from last week, small budgets, starkly, mediocre, look, speculations, for the season due to transition year, yet, we, we don't great under selves? We don't grade on a curve here at extra time. So if your small budget and low expectations. All we definitely do great. Like Philly have been a winner of the week on this show pretty much every frigging last two months, we didn't get said they should be in here. They're not because they've been here every single week. Let me break, males like that. Make me wanna take back every nice thing. I said about breaking here. Carry wants to know actual question. What piece area is Gary from Philly now. He's from Wilmington slash Chester. What piece Delaware would they actually have to add he'd say, right sided wingback strike on, right? They need somebody who's going to score twenty goals a game if they get. Season two. Gets name record is not gonna last if they can get a belief UIL goal score who can create goals when, when they're not he's not getting the best service. He can score from outside box inside the bucks, if they get somebody who can finish twenty goals season.

My name is Melissa in for Lance McAlister. This is arnold carrier. Sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred wwl w. we have so much to get to this evening. You heard in the six o'clock news. No real progress made in fact, no progress made at all in an effort to get baseball on the field in two thousand and twenty. However there is. Is News about baseball today that is sobering and I'm not sure is as it's bad. News I'm not sure it's as sobering and as bad as being framed today we found out that there were players in the Philadelphia phillies complex who have tested positive for in nineteen their facility in clearwater, Florida has been shut down same for the Toronto Blue Jays same in hockey, with the Arizona, coyotes, Tampa Bay lightning, and one of the best players on the Toronto Maple leafs Austin Matthews. And identified San. Francisco Forty niners player has tested for cove nineteen, so has a Tampa. Bay buccaneers assistant coach, and PGA Golfer Nick Watney. Who is competing in Hilton head, South Carolina this weekend now. Of course, none of this is good. There have also been by the way twenty eight athletes at clemson university including football players who have tested positive for cove. Cove in nineteen again, none of this is good. One positive cove in one thousand nine test is not good. This is being framed with a lot of doom and gloom and part of me. That understands why we're in an era of frankly almost non-stop doom and gloom, but there's a party that goes okay, look. It's sort of Mir's society as a whole. I'm not an epidemiologist I. don't pretend to be maybe I'm one of the only people on this radio station. Who hasn't pretended to be but I'm not what I will tell you those this with more tests. There's GonNa be. There's GonNa. Be People who test positive on the college level. What you're getting here are kids that are coming back to campus. They're getting tested and my guess is. So the kids that are testing positive. However, they acquired covid nineteen. They didn't acquire while on campus. This is an opportunity for them to get quarantined treated supervised, and ultimately nursed back to health without getting anybody sick. I'm also led to believe that in the grand scheme of all these college athletes who are coming back voluntarily to campus and they're getting tested. We're still dealing with a relatively tiny amount. It is still significant for my money. One Cove in nineteen tests is significant in look at might not kill you, but do you WanNa. Get Sick. No I do not same thing for the baseball players and I'll focus on that because that has been a huge part of our focus here in Cincinnati as we hope that there's reds baseball this year, it is sobering to read about the Philadelphia. Phillies having to shut down their facility same for the Toronto Blue Jays. It's very very sobering. At the same time. There's a huge number of people who are being tested were only finding out about a fractional number of people who are testing positive. mathematically get, it's not a good thing I don't view it with the same sort of doom and gloom perspective as everybody else. That said what it does do is I think to a degree it crystallizes what ultimately is going to be the main hurdle in? Sports Comeback Baseball's fighting over money. Frankly that should be the biggest sticking issue right now. The NBA they're fighting over I think to a degree. Degree some things that can be solved, but the overwhelmingly large obstacle here is covid nineteen because there are going to be athletes who test positive, it's just it's simple math if if we decided test. Five hundred random people that haven't been tested chances are all five hundred tests aren't gonNA. Come back negative. It would be great if they did chances are. They're not but at some point somewhere this year. Whether it's in the NFL Major League Baseball Major League soccer, which is going to get started here on July the eighth the NBA. The NHL There's there's going to be while the season is underway. There's going to be athletes who test positive for covid. Nineteen and chances are athletes of significance meaning, guys who can really impact the result star players, prominent players players who occupy huge positions on their team in their sport. Here's what I'm interested in along with that. We're probably going to have some athletes who decide you know what returned to play I'm out. I'm not playing. I. Don't want anything to do with this. Call me next year. Call me when there's a vaccine. You'RE NOT GONNA. Pay Me. That's okay. I'm out I'm not coming back now. Maybe we're talking about end of the bench. Guys! Perhaps we're talking about stars. Maybe we're talking about on a football team a backup guard. Perhaps we ended up talking about the starting quarterback. There's one thing that is sports fans. We haven't always done well, and that's watching an athlete. OPT to sit out if an athlete retires inevitably while they still have something left in the tank I will get a phone call from somebody telling me how the acne quit would occur who? I'll get that phone. Call I. Get it all the time. Something? That's become maybe a little bit less of a topic. But since I started doing this, the topic that that came out of left field for me and blindsided me a couple of years ago, there was a football player. I can't even remember who it was because we have revisited this occasionally including with Brandon, Phillips in two thousand thirteen. They opt to sit out because. Their wife or girlfriend is expecting a baby and we. We've had this stupid lame conversation like well. Should they miss the big game? Because their their significant other? Their wife Crawford, whoever is giving birth and I always thought the obvious answer was yeah. They should miss the game if they want if it's. Good with everybody that that's what the family wants. Then we should be okay with that. It's always interesting to me when this topic has come up the people that I've had screaming at me that can't quit the team. We historically haven't done athlete opting out well, there are going to be athletes who opt out maybe professionally. Maybe the collegiate level perhaps star players. Perhaps Dude you've never heard of. Interested in how we're GONNA handle that. We'll discuss numbers. Three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, eight hundred pound, seven hundred free call at and T. 6:35 Five bengals question that nobody seems to have the answer to I'm going to ask it anyway. Coming up after the six thirty news right now time for traffic and weather together dot com, six thirty news seven minutes away on seven hundred wwl. Aren't l.. Carrier Sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet. My Name's Malaita in for Lance. McAlister sterling tonight at nine to five on twitter congratulations to me, Asthma Allegra fifteen thirty in fact. I I'm sitting on fifty, eight, thousand, three, hundred ninety nine twitter followers, so you can round that off fifty eight four hundred There you go. Thanks so much I will I saw a tweet today. Speaking of twitter and I'd be lying to you. It was sort of in passing. I'm looking at twitter at my desk at work. And then somebody comes up and start. Somebody Jack Crumley comes up and starts talking to me. We're having a conversation about something, and then when I went to double back to the tweet a confined. So I can't give the proper credit and I can't read it verbatim here, but but the the to paraphrase. The tweet. Read something to the effect of. Sports returning during Kobe nineteen, which it hasn't gone away as as much as you might want to pretend that it's gone away. You're going to get mad at me for acknowledging that it hasn't gone away. In certain parts of the country feels like it's. It's been contained okay. In certain parts of the country, it feels like it's maybe on the verge of reaching a tipping point and boiling over, but it's not going away and it's still there. But the tweets. The tweet read something to the effect of. Let's be honest about contact sports in this climate. Were if the only priority were health and safety the only priority. Health and safety chances are we're not playing football hockey basketball, maybe even baseball, but the reality is this and I have no issue with this reality. Three years. The economy does matter. And sports are a huge part of the economy including the people playing themselves even at the college level. There is on behalf of many the the willingness to use sports as a tool for something, maybe brand building. Maybe it's jumping to the next level. Whatever so I think we've tended to frame. You could argue that I've been guilty of this. We've tended to frame it. As greedy owners, greedy television executives, athletes get paid too by the way so to sports talk hosts. To you man I. Mean there's there's a part of me we're. We're in a month for what I do for a living which is stick to sports. I could use some games to talk about so. Let's be honest. We all sort of approach this from very self serving angles I'm better when games are being played than when they're not lance, McAlister is better when games are being played when they're not willy in rocky and Rachel and Eddie, all those other guys could talk about God knows what me and Lance. We've got stan our sports lane. It helped have games. And the tweet finish saying something to the effect of we could admit that while acknowledging that playing sports is maybe not the safest thing that can happen. Luke fickle said today in a in a piece that I read on a w dot com for my dwyer. Look, we're all taking risks here. Taking risks has been part of our sport for a long time taking risks as kind of been a big part of American life. We're all taking risks here, so that to me is is it doesn't have to be both we have to be gung, Ho. Let's bring sports back and also. Let's bring sports back I think like so much of this. There's a lot of. Grey areas not the the right term. It's like I've been conflicted for three and a half months about this and frankly i. think that's the right place to be. It's not all the way over here in the left to right, but specifically as they pertain to athletes. I just I've done this long enough. I remember Joey Votto MS seven weeks in two thousand twelve breads are a pennant race. And if you remember, he got hurt in June, and it took him a while to come back, and while he was out, the reds caught fire Scott Rolling hit. Todd Frazier hit. The reds were okay, and they started to pull away the division, but we're still waiting for Joey votto to comeback, and I remember doing my show on ESPN fifteen thirty people screaming Joe. He's come back once. You'RE GONNA. COME BACK! It's like Oh, he's hurt man. He's trying. He suffered a setback. I remember when Joey votto had to miss time in two thousand nine, because he was dealing with some mental health issues in the wake of his father dying. And I. Remember the tone that some not all, but some took them. But he's got a responsibility to the team. He's gotta come back. It's like well. Yeah, he's. He's dealing with a lot right now. Man, yeah, well. I don't get to leave my job. It's like well then. You should have been a baseball player like dude. Sorry, he needs ton. Let them get time. It's not good enough. I remember sitting in this exact same spot seven years ago, Brandon Phillips missed two games in Oakland and all I did at the top of the show is mentioned. BP's not playing tonight. He's not an Oakland he's. Having a A. I don't know if it was his girlfriend. It wasn't his wife. A woman was about to give birth to a child of Brandon Phillips. He was there for it. No brainer as far as I'm concerned I don't care what's going on. I'm going to be there for that right. And then I spent the next three hours taking phone calls from angry people that Brandon Phillips was GonNa Miss Two regular season. Baseball Games in like May or June for the birth of his child plan on getting at here. Is We often? Don't do player opting out well. At some point, there's going to be an athlete. Maybe it's before sports start. Maybe it's once they've begun. Maybe it's because there's an influx of positive tests and a certain athlete hasn't tested. We're an athlete goes. You know what I'm not good with this and look, keep playing and resume without me, but I'm good, and maybe you don't pay me. That's fine. I'm not playing. Maybe, it's in the NFL. Maybe it's at the college level. Perhaps it's a major league baseball. I WANNA. Know if we're going to be okay with that. It's easy to say it right now. Right until the Game Start and you start to get invested, and there's a big game on Sunday and let's say it's Joe Murrow job real steps up and going to tell you what man I've been doing this for a couple of weeks. I know I'm a rookie. I'm not comfortable doing this. I'll be back when we all vaccine. That's an extreme example that I'm using one guy who's prominent place quarterback. But I'm telling you man I'm telling you whether it's taking phone calls looking at twitter or just talking with buddies of mine I know there's going to be somebody who's not going to stand for an athlete opting ow, because they don't feel safe. Some kind of wondering here and I am going to switch gears and ask bengals question at six, thirty, five I'm kind of wondering here if an athlete says non good. I WANNA play and come back and play but I'm good now. Are we going to be okay with that I. have a feeling the answer on June nineteenth is yeah. He's games haven't started yet once they do. I don't think the answer is going to be yeah for a lot of people Adam Allegra fifteen thirty on twitter. All right, so bangles have a lot of questions hovering over there season. They've addressed a lot of parts of the roster. There's one area they've left glaringly week. We'll get to that after the six thirty news, which is coming up next on Mo, Egger this is arnold carrier sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred WWL W. Twenty, two away from seven o'clock money's Mulder Arnold carrier sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet seven hundred WWL W. Five point three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand. Eight hundred the big one. It's interesting. This has been a real feel-good bengals off season, which is remarkable given the fact that the team could could not have made us feel any worse last year it is. It is interesting to surge of optimism. We are less than six months removed from the bengals finishing up a season that mathematically is tied for their worst ever two and fourteen, and yet there has been a refreshing and fun surge of optimism of good feeling of interest. I've said this about sports, basically my entire life. I want you to either be good or be interesting. I say this all the time on my show on ESPN fifteen, thirty to the point that folks were repeat it back to me all the time, which is kind of Nice but Either, be good or be interesting ideally, both you can't be neither. The bengals over the last four years obviously not very good last year they were terrible, but especially over the last three seasons. They also patently uninteresting. To seasons themselves into them. We kind of knew all each of the last three years an. Venture to save each last four years. We kind of knew how things were going, and we knew this team wasn't going to be very good. We knew for instance two years ago. You could see all right in can happen with Marvin Lewis. It's a matter of when not if they're going to move on from him. Obviously, his end came at the end of two thousand, eighteen, even going into last year, despite the fact that they didn't address quarterback in the first round of the twenty, one, thousand, nine hundred, and it was pretty clear early on. Team's GONNA stink and they're going to. They're going to have a new quarterback. Now. We might not have known at the time. It was going to be Joe, borough, but we knew, and when the result and the outcomes are predictable. And the particulars are stale, and you're simply killing time until major moves are made frankly. You're not interesting. Your Games are interesting. I mean it's. Being doing this show or show like this in Cincinnati over the last couple of years. When it comes to the Bengals, specifically as kind of like talking about sports over the last five months where you're not actually talking about games, you're not actually talking about the upcoming opponent or strategy or what defined the outcome. or any of that? It's big picture sort of stuff. Because the games themselves didn't matter now. The thing that has me really excited about the Bengals is the long-term possibilities and when I say long term I mean two thousand and twenty one whereas a fan you know. Maybe this team can actually win and be back in the postseason and. Perhaps for the first time in over three decades when a playoff game at some point, but more than anything. I just. There's a lot of interesting moving parts. Joe Boroughs interesting how they use them what they get out of him. What kind of coach Zach Taylor is what kind of player Aj? Green is how Joe Mixon going into his walkie, or if indeed he plays without a contract for next year this year. HOW THAT UNFOLDS! How play on the field? This year determines what? They're GONNA do in Free Agency next year. How play on the field! This year determines which players? They're GONNA sign long-term. Whether they're they're bet on their own guys on the offensive line pays off whether their bed on players from other teams in free agency, especially on defense whether that pays off, there's like a thousand different like interesting things about this team, which has me excited is hell now. I don't think that's going to result in more than. Six maybe seven wins and You know there's a really good chance might not result in more than four or five. But it's interesting despite all the changes I keep coming back to one thing in the grand scheme of things. Maybe this isn't all that Major. But given the current climate. And frankly given as much time as we've spent talking about backup quarterbacks. It's interesting to me that this hasn't gotten nearly as much run as I think it should. Ryan Finley's this team's backup quarterback now. That last year, the bengals drafted him somewhat high. they weren't going to be very good last year, but they also didn't drive Ryan. Finley clearly traff Ryan Finley with the idea that he was going to be the starting quarterback one day. Frankly I think in the three games started last year. He could have let the world on fire, and the bengals would still have been in the market for quarterback, although perhaps not the number one overall pick Finley did play three games last season, and probably solidified the bengals getting the number one overall pick because he was ungodly terrible. That doesn't mean that there's not a place in the NFL for there's a long list of guys who have started and stunk, and then with the benefit of experience and learning from the the on field experience have had productive long a in some cases lucrative NFL careers, but The bengals this off. Season prioritized winning this season. Like what they did in free agency, what they did in keeping Aj green around what they did to a degree in drafting Joe Berlin, making him the starter everything they've done this year has placed a premium on better on field results in two thousand, twenty, as much as we talk about the future of this team. As much as we talked about the direction, they may go in long term. They prioritized winning this season. They couldn't take a step backward. They're not playing for draft positioning. They're not tanking. Going to try to win games this year. And yet if they have to turn to Ryan Finley for some reason. I'm not sure any of us are going to feel good about that now. Hopefully, it doesn't come to that, but there's a couple of things here number one. Joe Borough is GonNa. Walk into the NFL. He's to have a training camp unlike any other. We don't know if we're going to have preseason games. Obviously the regular offseason program they tried to simulate it as best as they possibly can, but let's face it. It's not the same as being on the field with coaching. Installing an offense is different when you're doing it while staring at a computer screen versus being a meeting room or getting a chance to work things through on the field. His first NFL practice is a part of training. Camp is really going to be the first official kind of NFL action. He's been in. We don't know if it's GONNA be interrupted. We don't those practices are going to be like. We don't know how many practices there are GonNa be. So you have that, then you have. Possibility of an injury I mean I hate to say it. I'll be accused of Jinxing it. It's okay, 'cause I don't believe in Jinx's but. Twenty for years and years and years and years I'd hear. People obsess over the Karen. It's like well. He's a backup quarterback. Yeah, glad we got him. Why because you could put him in a game and by the way I didn't agree I didn't disagree with that. Aj McCarron proved himself to be somebody that you had to put him in a game. It'd be all right right, and that's what you're looking for from a backup. Can we function? Can we be okay? Are we are we? We totally Sol of this guy has to play with Aj McCarron the answer to that question was no, you could put them in and be fine. And when he had a chance to play in two thousand fifteen, they were fine, but it's interesting to me. For as much as we obsessed over backup quarterback year after year after year. There's a lot of folks being pretty dismissive cavalier about the bengals having. A backup quarterback who has three games of NFL experience and he was terrible in all three. So there's a couple of different things here. US. As much as you might not want to hear me, say this. covid nineteen. So we're GONNA be testing these players multiple times a week. They're going to be tested that the night before games. Joe Borough. Hope it doesn't happen obviously. Show some symptoms gets tested, and now the next day can play in the bengals prioritizing winning. And Ryan Finley is going to be the guy. Now I know what you're thinking right now. I am using this as a long wind up to launch into a Colin kaepernick topic. That's not I. That's not what I'm going with. This I can assure you in large part because I've already done that topic. I did it three years ago. My feelings on it hasn't changed from what they were three years ago. And those who would be against it, their feelings have evolved, and if I wanted to revisit screaming matches from three years ago, I'd go find the podcast show three years ago where I suggested that I'd be okay if the Bengals Sign Colin Kaepernick I'd play the tape and I'd go I drinking and take the rest of the night off, so that's not where I'm going with this. where I'm going with this, is you as a Bengals Fan? There's something about a backup. quarterback provides comfort right like after AJ had a chance to play in two thousand fifteen as much as I thought, it was silly that he should be the starting quarterback. There were people that suggested that for the rest of his time, bengals. I operated thinking okay. If something does happen, Andy and AJ has to play. I'm okay with that. I feel comfortable. They can get through a game. They can get through a quarter. They can get through a couple of weeks I. Don't know that I'd want him to be the guy for two or three months at a time, and the the NFL has told you how they feel about Aj because it's not like he's been a starting quarterback since, but there was a degree of comfort right. There was a degree of reliability when Carson Palmer was. His first two seasons in the League right, two, thousand five playoff game as much as it's painful to bring up when John Kennedy trudged out of the field I remember saying we can win this game. John Kidney can win this game, and for about thirty five of those game minutes actually thought he was going to win that game for him. Something about a backup quarterback. There's also something about a team that is being built to win now. I don't think the Bengals have a team where they're going to win ten games. Nine Games really seriously contend for a playoff spot or anything. I think they're gonNA. Hover right around five or six wins. They're going to be in that Ballpark, and by the way Vegas agrees because the over under his five and a half, but. Off Season unlike any other, there is a chance as much as I love Joe. Borough, there's a chance that you could argue that. Maybe Joe is not completely ready for week one. There's injury risk. There's cove in nineteen, and even if it's just to get through a week, even if it's just to get through I, don't know. We have concussion protocols in this league. Right guy can be taken out of the game. Instantly Right independent neurologist sees something happened with Joe Borough. We pull him. Ryan Finley's the guy. Now some of the bigger name backup quarterbacks have signed. I made a case that Joe flacco should be signed while he's with the jets and I already told you. The Colin Kaepernick conversation happened three years ago. Your mind hasn't changed. My mind hasn't changed. So why yell and scream about it Cam, Newton's out there. I've no remote idea why he's not in the NFL right now, but also works against them to a degree is they have gone through most of the off-season Ryan Finley has operated as the backup quarterback, and you do kind of wonder. Are they behind the eight ball and getting a veteran? Veteran guy up to speed if they signed him right now, so it's simply this for as many lingering questions says there are with the bengals for all the really good things. I think they've done this. He's this has been a fun offseason. Bengals, Fan Borough, getting drafted team active in free agency would appears to be a pretty productive draft. They addressed most every area that I wanted them to offensive line could use some help, but they're still some possibilities out there, and by the way and I said this the other night I think there's a chance that as we get to cut down day. Looking to cut costs, because nobody has any idea what the salary caps going to look like next year, and they try to get out in front of it, and they let some dudes go round cut down day. Did the Bengals can pluck like I on board? With almost everything? The bengals have done this off season. I still have a lot of questions I have no idea. Zach Taylor can coach. I have no idea of what they've done on. Defense is GONNA lead to. The kind of leap forward they needed to. I. Don't know what can play Aj Green is anymore I. Don't know if the Bengals can keep Jonesboro upright. But maybe the part that I feel shakiest about I can't help, but ask him if joke Berle has to miss a half. Per Game! Topple. That dude who looked comically bed in those three games that chances are. You didn't watch last year because the Bengals were so terrible Ryan, Finley. Feel. Okay with that dude running the offense. By the end of the season. Maybe the answer is yes coming into the season. Maybe you could tell me why I'm wrong. I don't know how the answer isn't no. Five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, eight, hundred, the big one end up pound, seven, hundred, absolutely free call on at and T.. We've talked a lot this week. About the return of baseball. Manfred the owners, the players torpedoing the sport were baseball is in American culture were baseball's GonNa be if the season doesn't happen this year I think to a degree fans like me are talking about a fan that no longer exists. I have some questions for you at seven Oh five. Hope you around for a matter of the news. My name is Malaysia eight minutes away from the news at seven o'clock. This is our. No Sports. Talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet. WWL W. School selection. Tonight's can pretty damn good. It'd be honest with you. Hall and OATES Homa notes. Is GonNA play a riverbed on July the twelfth and. Now, that's not happen. I was going to be there for them. to Go see a band like hall and OATES. You know every song right. Don't bore you well. We're GONNA play it off the new album. I mean they may have to play one. I saw Huey Lewis a couple of years ago, the Casino downtown. And he play. Those fifteen songs every American like my age forty two knows by heart and midway through. Hey, look, record company guys here are GonNa play one song from the new record, so if you want to go to the bathroom and get a beer ahead. I just I love the honesty hall and OATES. It's kind of the same thing. This was going to be a decent concert summer. It's going to go see the stones last Sunday move. It's going to be a baseball summer to, and it still may be I think what's happened for a lot of us a look. I look at this a through the lens of a reds fan. This is I think here being talked about the stalemate between owners and players. Let's face it. This is being framed a little bit differently here if it's two thousand sixteen where we the reds, we're going to be terrible ovo. Let's let's the great equalizer during a year is well one hundred sixty game schedule. There's a lot of teams that catch fire especially. If you're going to have a huge playoff field of sixteen teams and all I gotTa do is be okay for fifty or sixty games suddenly bad teams have shot, but. Let's face it. We thought the reds and still I think in most cases believed the reds could still have a good season and give to the postseason, and maybe do some damage in October or November or whenever they actually play the play offs. We were it was a winter of anticipation, and that has been and greatly obviously by the fact that we haven't had a season yet, so we look at it through that Lens First, and then through the lens of I think the overall health of the sport and I think. The one thing that is sort of crystallized over the last couple of weeks is these are the two sides that can't get an agreement done on baseball now and these are the two sides in charge of. Ushering sport into the next decade and solving a lot of built in issues, the sport is dealing with right now. I think to a degree though. Baseball is looking for fan that no longer exists. Or does he or she? You could tell me after the seven o'clock news, which is coming up right now, Allegra. This is the carrier sports talk show presented by. Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred WWL W. He's ready for you. Lobby there. The following takes place between seven PM and eight PM hi there. Good evening. My name is mulder in for the vacationing Lance McAlister. Who is back on Monday? This is Arnold Carrier Sports. Talk about. Kelsey Chevrolet seven hundred W W her till nine. Pounds sterling nine five tonight. Yes you question, are you a? Baseball Fan. If you're listening to sports, talk okay, so I am going to guess that you are. You don't hate baseball if you're listening right now. This is a sports. Talk Radio Show you have. At, least some passing interest in baseball now. Maybe you're not a die, hard fan. Perhaps football's more your game. We'll do some more football later on. I I would find it hard to believe that anybody listening right now hates baseball refuses to watch loves it. Kind of question while you're listening, but we're happy to have you nonetheless. Guest that our audience tonight runs the gamut on the baseball spectrum from casual to little bit more than casual, but not quite diehard. Diehard to like really die hard right I'm putting using pretty broad terms. Yes, you question if you're a diehard baseball fan. In all honesty, be honest with me. Sports, fans love to exaggerate how diehard hardcore they are. I don't know where I got that voice from. ME. Ask you this diehard baseball fan. Couple of questions. Number One. On during the baseball season on a on a nightly basis during the week. How often are you sitting down? And, watching an. Entire baseball game. Uninterrupted. I would put myself on the extreme die hard end of the scale here. I also talk about baseball for a living. That's not something that I often do. I I mean like seven ten roger starting honey. I got I got a focus I got. Reds are on the night I, gotTa. Daughter Guyq just I got. I got I got a laser focus on this baseball game, okay? On the weekends. Saturday Sunday. How often are you pushing stuff aside? Like a look Reverend Chicago this weekend I know their stuff going on graduation parties vacations. I gotta lock in reds cubs. Hit me up when the game is over. I'm talking about it again. Die Hard Fan! Again I can speak for myself I. usually make part of the weekend right. Make it part of the night. It is pretty rare that the entire weekend revolves around a regular season baseball game. So here's why I'm bringing this up because I've heard over the last couple of a couple of weeks, baseball owners and players have struggled to get on the same page. You have owners lying about how profitable they are. The players saying tell us when and where owners do that and the players say well. We really didn't mean it. It's just a mess fiasco, but a lot of folks have a have sort of approach. This from the standpoint of all baseball is GONNA die. Man Baseball's dying. It's dying. It's going to die so over snow. We're GONNA come back dead. And certainly going away for a whole year's not good for business I mean so these owners who are apparently the six to eight owners who are in favor of not having a season, though the business owners I've ever heard of who thought it's a good idea for their business to not do business. Okay baseball owner guide, but you're hearing a lot of this whole. It's going to be dead. It's going to go away. It's GonNa. Go Away. Let me ask you another question. Your reds, Fan, right. When's the last time you watched a baseball game on television in the regular season? That didn't involve the reds. I'm talking like you know Sunday night baseball dodgers padres you locked into that on ESPN on Sunday night. Or like. A Saturday afternoon F one is showing. Red Sox. Yankees are on. You locked into that one. MLB network is showing random. We got phillies pirates. Or a Wednesday night? You you just you focused in on that bad boy. No and chances. When is the last time you were in on that kind of game? I don't want no I will tell you I subscribe to MLB. But. Here's the thing I love most about baseball it's. Background noise. It's. Like baseball on the radio for me, Okay I love baseball on the radio. You know what I love doing. Listening to baseball on the radio, I like sitting outside having a beer having a cigar. Maybe it's me and my wife. Maybe it's me a neighbor. Maybe it's me and my buddies. We're not sitting there silently listening to every syllable of Mardi or this year Tommy throat, it's there. It's drifting in the background. If I'm by myself, I'm obviously plant paying closer attention, but. It's it's. It's background noise like when Vince Gully was still inactive announcer, MLB TV subscriber F. and do a lot of show prep late at night for my show on ESPN fifteen thirty I love the turn on the West Coast, Games and I do this now with the San Francisco. Giants announcers because they're funny as hell and I'll turn it on, and it's background noise, and sometimes something really cool will happen in the game, and then I'll pay close attention, but. For the most part, it's there I. The reds are kind of the same thing when you go to a baseball game. When you go to a game, no! Here's what I like to do. I love to go to reds games. More than more often than not i. don't really sit in my seat. I go down right field line Budweiser Bowtie bar tried to get a table. Get a beer. Get something to eat post up with my buddies I could see the game I can chat with people. There to socialize and the Games there and when there's big moments in it, I'm not like focused in. Paying attention to the PITCHER's arm angle. And studying signs from the third base coach, it's there. It's sort of hovering in the background. She here's why I'm bringing this up. I believe that we're on the hunt for a baseball fan. That frankly no longer exists right like we keep talking to Oh man. Baseball's just not what it used to be right. But it hasn't. It hasn't been what it used to be in decades. Like I mean like decades. So here's how you get. Fans back the local team wins. Baseball could go away this year. Go in two thousand and twenty one and I know you're gonNA. Throw me in ninety five. The reds were good and people didn't come back I. DO understand that man I really really do. I am willing to bet you the next time we have baseball. The reds are really good. The town's going to be energized, and you're going to have a lot of people who are interested in by the way ninety five when folks didn't go to reds games. When they were on TV, and not every game was on TV back. Then ratings are really good. Radio ratings are really good. There was a level of interest. It wasn't what it was pre strike. Here's the the clumsy point that I'm trying to make here. I think we're looking for this fan that even among diehards doesn't exist all. There's not going to be interested in baseball anymore. Okay! Right well, there's going to be interesting. Local teams in the cities where the local teams are good and relevant, and whether there's an effort by owners to win, and you know how you create interest in your local market for your team to win your owners try to win, and that's a huge thing in baseball. We're owners. Don't try to win. It is I. Mean you get mad at me for saying that every time I do on twitter I. Get well actually. Owners, they gotta be more financially solvent like no dude. Owners sit out trying to win. Be Honest with you man. I've no issue really practically with how the reds rebuilt, but if they wanted to spend two hundred, billion or two hundred million dollars on free agents in two, thousand, fifteen, sixteen and seventeen, they could've they just chose not to. They chose to take the slow rebuild, and maybe this was the payoff, but we're sold on the idea that owners well. Well going to be more financially responsible. Okay cool. That's GONNA. Come at the expense of winning. If you want people to get excited about baseball, they're going to be excited only about their team. When a when a fans team stinks, I do sports talk radio every single day for the last seven years. The reds have stunk every October. The playoffs start. I have not gotten one phone call about something that happened in a playoff for a world series game. Like it's crickets I would be stupid to even bring it up middle of October Edge Watch, the American League Championship series last night. How did you feel about Terry? Francona did crickets were looking for a fan that even among us. Diehards doesn't exist and I am a diehard baseball fan, and I'm the first to admit like. If you say to me, Hey, man, how that on Monday night the reds off! What if we watched twins white SOx yen? Is that all we're GONNA do. Now football season. Hey, Monday night. Football's on and. I don't even have to know who. I Love Baseball like that in college basketball at my favorite sports. If you say to me, NBA Ploughs Double Header. Tonight you in yeah. Hey. Baseball the east. Coast game we got. Interleague, action nationals Os and then let's stay up. Late watched the first few innings of mariners angels. K.! Like we're looking for a fan that among diehard diehard baseball fans care about their team, maybe gambling, maybe fantasy, football, or fantasy baseball, and I have a lot of friends who are baseball fans. I don't know one who plays fantasy baseball. Lance mcallister is the only person I know who plays fantasy baseball. So. We keep talking about other sports dying. It's declining. It's not gonNA come back. were. What do you think it's going to come back to? It's GonNa. Come back to somebody being interested in their favorite team. When are they going to be interested in their favorite team? If their favorite team is good, what's the best chance you have your favorite team? Being good the owner caring. In a lot of markets, the owner doesn't care and a lot of markets. The honorable go out of their way to explain. Hey, we're not making that much money. In Chicago this off season owner, the cubs Tom Ricketts a Bozo because they didn't sign any players. The cubs worth more than three billion dollars. They just made a a total clown show of the area around. Wrigley field they own all of that property. They've never been more profitable and yet this off season by the way with their own TV network now. The owner of the cubs is like. Yeah. We didn't have any money for to help the bullpen. Sorry. Hair bleacher seats in the outfielder. Sixty bucks combine those. In Boston, the Boston Red Sox flush. With cash. Yeah, mookie betts in his prime. One of the best players in the game. Sorry were gonNA trade him to the dodgers. Yeah I know we can't afford 'EM, we're worth more than four billion dollars. The goofball owner, the cardinals who lives here in town high bill dewitt. He said last week I you don't. Baseball team not that profitable. He just bought evil Longoria. Not Evan Longoria Eve Longoria. Her house sold for nine million dollars. Just been saving his money moonlighting on the side now, chances already made money baseball team. It's profitable. So, we talk all sports dying. Here's how you revive interest in the sport. Have the owners care enough to try to win? And, yes, in small markets that logic applies to. By the way in Cincinnati we the worst attendance in. Thirty four years in two thousand eighteen. Why because team stunk year after year after year after year? That's a lot of diehard baseball fans. That didn't say yet. The reds are no good, but you know what I'm GonNa. Do I'm gonNA check in on. Rockies diamondbacks are playing. I'M NOT GONNA. Watch the red. No, you're a reds fan, or you're an Indians fan or your cardinal's fan, or you're a Yankees fan, or you're a Marlin okay, there's Marlins will have advance your a fan of your team. That's what we're looking to create here. Fans of individual teams that can come back that can come back if in thirty Major League Townsville. At least the majority of thirty majorly towns, there were legitimate efforts by owners to try to win. Legitimate, efforts by. Owners to try to win. We're looking for all the sport and the collective consciousness dude. It's not nineteen fifty two. We have other stuff football's. Impossible, to penetrate, it's the most popular sport in the country. That's not going anywhere. It's the perfect TV sport. It's once a week. It just the NFL one. They won, and their never being knocked off the perch, naturally college football was inevitably going to move into the second spot, and that's happened and basketball's different in basketball, thriving in both big markets and small markets, because it's a national sport. Baseball's not so, how do you fix it? Then do well regionally. And how do you do well regionally? Feel winning teams. You want to know why the reds and cardinals have gone in separate directions why the cardinals fans are considered the best in baseball because they haven't had a ninety loss season since the eighty S. I think since one thousand nine hundred thirty years. They're always relevant, always relevant. Teams always relevant. What's going to happen? Folks are going to and show up. Seven winning seasons since ninety four. Oh, no kidding! ATTENDANCE BOTTOMED OUT! No kidding were jealous of Saint Louis in the towns where the teams are consistently winning, which is usually in the towns with ownership is consistently good. There's always going to be interest. Going to be none if the team stinks and we're not gonNA. Divert our attention to other baseball games. We're going to divert our attention other sports by the way that happened here with FC Cincinnati. So test my theory. Five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, eight, hundred, the big one I'm I, think baseball's looking for fan. That's never going to exist and doesn't exist now. Tell me why I'm wrong. Twenty three minutes after seven o'clock or no carrier sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred WWL W. Catching June right there twenty three minutes away from eight o'clock. Arnelle carrier sports talk. Presented by Kelsey Chevrolet. wwl W coming out to the boss. Bob! We ought to do is take some phone calls. It's a talk. Show your. We're supposed to engage the audience. My producer tonight is is a gentleman by the name of a chip Pratt. Who He's tried to hand out an edict that we're not going to take phone calls tonight. And I think that's kind of authoritarian of him. He also wants me to do off the beaten path because he misses lance I. Don't have an off the beaten path topic. Your favorite condiments like I just not my not. My Jam is awesome at that favorite Wrestlemainia I watched numbers two three and four after that I. I'm not your and I watch them on VHS tape. I didn't watch him live because my dad was cheap, I have not really watched them. On F s one so. Off the, beaten path your favorite wrestle. On the baseball thing like I am not saying this to be critical of the game itself. I do think it's as we've had this conversation about all baseball's losing interest I get the demographic. That says baseball is. It's favorite. Sport is old, comparatively speaking but. I think sometimes I think we do this. It's like if. If, you do one of these twitter things which is and I'm going to get phone calls here in a second, but if you do one of these twitter things which meant to kill time. Where there was one that was thrown out a couple of months ago, and it was name your favorite three reds reds players of all time. And I. Actually it was favorite five reds players of all time. And I said Barry Larkin. David Parker David Dave Parker. Eric, Davis Johnny Cueto Willie Blumquist, my favorite five reds players of all time. And then instantly it's like. ooh, what about Joey, votto like. Yeah. He's good, too. I was asked my favorite five I like Joey, but those are my favorite five things. Or if somebody says like, what would your last meal be like? I love a perfectly. Grilled steak with melted garlic butter on the top. What about Italian? Food? Like yeah, I? Like Italian food, so there's a lot of people who don't live baseball. Baseball's their favorite sport. That doesn't mean they hate it. Just means they like something else a little bit more like. I asked all the time. What's your favorite sport? and honestly it's it's if you ask me like the middle of November. I'm going to say pro football right because unlike fully in the pro football, but like the two that I'm most emotionally attached to that I go deepest with college, Basketball and baseball. At the yet, what the I really liked the NBA I just. You, know I like college basketball and I was asking my favorite, and that's my favorite favorite doesn't mean it's the only one right like I love every flavor of ice cream. Ever that doesn't have peanut butter in it because I don't like peanut butter. Right I like them all so if we have greater. One nine of my chocolate. But then the next might go for something a little bit more exotic chocolate, chip, mint, or something like that right, so there's a lot of a lot of folks who say that our favorite sports I'm rambling here, but there's a lot of folks who say well, my favorite sports basketball, but you know what in the summertime I love to listen to a baseball game or I love to go to the Ballpark, a couple of times or go to a ballpark that I haven't been to like I understand the sport from the standpoint of owning the real estate that the NFL does it doesn't. Doesn't have it. Owning the real estate that the NBA does doesn't have it or having the sort of individual star power of the NBA or having a capturing nations collective imagination. The the the NCAA tournament does baseball's postseason doesn't do that doesn't mean there's not a lot of people engaging in it I think we're looking for all you know what I wish. Baseball was the way things were when I was a kid well i. wish a lot of things were the way they were when I was a kid. They're not coming back either. Neither is baseball's the only game in town. That's okay. I think if you really want full engagement, you need larger efforts by owners around the country to win, and if there's one thing that's bothered me about baseball watching it. The last four or five years have been the number of owners in this sport who have basically decided to not win. And the reds have gotten credit the last two off seasons for being one of those teams trying to win. And I think that's revealing, because it's not like they built these powerhouse teams. They've gotten credit from merely trying. To give you lots unpack their deny. Mike is in Lexington Mike. Even though my producer doesn't want phone calls tonight. I'm putting you on. How are you? I'm pretty good. Take my call. That's my job. Man I'll tell you what when March and April rolls around I swear feels like life returned back to normal 'cause baseball's back You know it's summertime. It's just it's. It's really it's stuck, not having. It. Isn't that well put yes, I agree. And I, mean I would consider myself a die hard fan I mean. I'm tuned in every. Every single day that the reds are on. You know I was my my dad, he made he made a good point yesterday. I was talking with him about you know. I'm twenty two years old I'm a diehard baseball. Die Hard Red Sox. and he was telling me you know I would guess that the average age for you know. Your typical baseball fan would be around forty or fifty, would you? Would you agree? It's t's a little bit older shore. Yes, yeah. They've they've got to do something to appeal? To the younger generations that are my age, because I mean I i. definitely have a ton of friends that that love baseball guy do, but yeah, but man. It's just it seems like way. More people are into. NBA College or anything like that and there's just. There's so many more opportunities for baseball to. Dial defend you know. What the NFL when something goes on somebody, you know. The the rhetoric goes on Mike and he tells. Not sure you're hitting one of my biggest pet peeves. When I'm at the game. Over my head on what happened, yeah! Just things like that that I feel like I will say it can add up. Yeah I think I think there's there's there's no one reason why baseball has arrived at the point that it's at. It's a series of things you know. We've had about thirty five years of of of of every big playoff and world series game ending around midnight. You're not getting younger fans there, and that goes back to when I was a kid I mean I remember vividly in the mid eighties. Sneaking a little television in my room, hoping my mom or dad wouldn't see me watching it after eleven o'clock at night. That's not a recent phenomenon. Added up. You know something else that I think has to a degree. Hurt interest a little bit for years i. think that I think the the law, the plight of the long-suffering red sox or cubs fan. I think that attracted a level of attention those. Right like when the Red Sox won the world series for the first time since nineteen eighteen in two thousand four. This is a huge National Story Cincinnati one four times. The cubs finally won a world series. The White Sox hadn't won since nineteen seventeen. They won in two thousand and five now if we talk about long suffering fan bases. Frankly, we talked about derides and the dodgers and. Maybe the mets are the pirates haven't 179 or they know the Texas Rangers that don't have huge national appeal. I think to a degree. It's like you know those were storylines. That really helped baseball into this millennium. Well, you know we. We found out what it's going to be like. When the cubs win the world series, we've found out what it's going to be like. When the Red Sox won the world series now attention turns back to our local teams and in many. You see teams that have gone many many years without winning, and in some cases without even trying to win. You're dead on with that car I. Appreciate the call. Thank you so much. You got no look I. I, I sound like I'm beating up on on the reds. There is I believe this look as a reds fan I can. I can workup worked myself into a lather as much as any reds fan when the Saint Louis Cardinals are are brought up, right. We're not supposed to liked them. There's. There's not even a real rivalry. Reds. Cardinals was not really a rivalry before Brandon Phillips in the Audio Molina. Not sure it's a huge rivalry now but. It, okay, they're in the same division. The cities are reasonably close proximity. There's a lot of similarities both river towns, and both considered both have people who consider them who both are towns were the folks there consider themselves residents of a big baseball town? So we get cardinals, envy sometimes right, and we get tired of hearing about best. Fans and baseball, and it's odds America's greatest baseball town I get tired hearing that. Well in. In nineteen ninety, two Saint Louis Cardinals Seventy and ninety two. And for the first few years of the nineties. There attendance waned. Drew, a million, seven and nineteen ninety-five, which was their lowest attendance figure since before they won the world series in nineteen, eighty two. And Nineteen ninety-six. WENT TO A. Game away from going to the world series. Since then they have been to the postseason. One, two, three, four, seven ten. They've been to the postseason fourteen times since Nineteen ninety-six fourteen times. Ninety four was the introduction of three divisions, so the NFL central goes back to nineteen ninety-four. The Saint Louis Cardinals have never finished in last place. Never finished in last place when it was a five team division never finished in last place when it was a sixteen division. They played in four world series. They've won two. They have lost ninety games since one thousand ninety. They've been relevant like every single year. Every single year, and when there are exceptions, it's like a one year dip. The reds have won. One postseason series since nineteen, ninety. Reds attendance dropped to thirty four year low in two thousand eighteen. In two thousand eighteen, the cardinals drew three point four million fans. They've drawn three million fans or more every C, every single season since two thousand four. I mean it ain't. It's not hard. And look at the colonel's. They were great in the eighties won three pennants an awesome history? They do as much as you might not like to hear that. They went to the world series three times in the sixties. Reds into the world series four times in the seventies, but recently the last thirty years look at the two franchises or one. The ballpark is full every single night to every single year whether the reds are good or bad, we have these long discussions about what it's. GonNa take to get people to go to. It's not hard now. Here's the part of this that I'm waiting for you to counter me with. Okay well we have to. We have to achieve some sort of competitive balance. We've got to help a team like the reds. We've got a boost them up. I've had this conversation. A couple of different times over the last couple of weeks. The mechanism that a lot of people will make the case for is a salary cap. Fact I heard. Mike Decor see who I respect the hell out of because he's been a great guest of my show. College basketball writer, but just a thoughtful person, thoughtful sports fan. He was on ESPN, fifteen, thirty, making the case for a salary cap and right, philosophically I don't really agree with it, but okay. If these teams are having a hard time getting out of their own way, and we have to help them and help them achieve some competitive balance. I'm here for a salary, cap. I never hear from anybody. How we're going to implement it. How we're going to. The players have to sign off on it. I never hear anybody. Come up with a way to get the players to say yes to a salary cap. So, that's the answer to this. Hey, you. Give the reds fighting chance by. Giving them the same salary cap is everybody else? Okay? That's not gonNA stop organizations from being run poorly. We see that in the NFL. We see that in the NBA, it's it's not gonNA. It's GONNA create a parody that everybody is looking for. Because frankly in the NFL, we don't have parody and frankly in the NBA. We really don't have parody either but okay, but what I never here is what the plan is to get the players to say. Yes, so if that's the if that's the answer I would. I would love to kick this around five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven thousand. If the idea is well, then we everybody has to be on the level playing field from a salary standpoint and be able to spend the same amount of money. How do you get the players to say yes to that? I've got one idea that you're not gonNA like I'll give it to you with eight Oh five on seven hundred WWL W. Eight o'clock news three minutes away on seven hundred seventy W, MO, Egger Lance McAlister Arnelle carrier sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet five point, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand is my phone number, a couple of things on the possible return of baseball Ken Rosenthal of Athletic. My colleague got the athletic. Being me and Ken Rosenthal colleagues. He has reported over the last thirty minutes. According to sources, Major League Baseball has informed the players association that the League is not moving off of its sixty game proposal for the length of a season, and they're not going to issue a counter proposal to the seventy game offer the players made yesterday now if you haven't been following this, and and if you haven't. You're doing the right thing. Baseball made a proposal sixty games. Let's do it. Players said seventy games. They're fighting over one hundred fifty million dollars. These baseball teams collectively are worth more than fifty billion dollars. They're fighting over one hundred fifty mill. Also Rosenthal reports what this could lead to major league baseball owners, imposing a season of whatever link day choose perhaps as few as forty eight. There's not been a decision made Yeh. Length of schedule can be a discretion of the commissioner under the agreement that was put forth on March twenty six, so. There you go also this. According to a Bob Nightingale of USA Today and some of this stuff has been talked about. He writes the two sides, agreed their proposal this week that they will adopt the minor league rule in two thousand and twenty that every inning, after the ninth inning is going to start with a runner on second base in the postseason games wall revert back to traditional rule so extra innings reds come up top of the Tenth Runaround Second Base Union also wants to discuss with baseball, the possibility of changing the substitution rules in extra innings, allowing players to re enter the game among other possibilities. The two sides which have yet to reach a Labor agreement agreed this year that run will start at second base beginning in the inning of extra inning regular season games. The rule was implemented in the minor leagues in two thousand eighteen. Also they are talking about. S- they've agreed for to have a universal da in two thousand and twenty in two thousand twenty one. Proposal is also. Asking players! To who cohabitate with quote, high risk individuals including spouse who's pregnant. Would also have the right to opt out of the season and still receive their prorated salary and full service time. Baseball has already agreed to allow high risk players to covid nineteen. Opt Out and still be paid other players who aren't considered high risk and still opt out, but aren't going to be paid or receive service time. But Yeah I'm here for these things during a gimmicky season like starting extra innings with a guy on second base I think across season, these things are basically solutions looking for a problem, but in a year like this. Why not I mean? If you're going to have a forty eight game or a sixty game schedule, it's already sort of gimmicky. It's already sort of weird. You're going to have questions about its legitimacy. This is the time to try stuff out I. am here for trying stuff out and more than anything. I'm here for baseball and. We're still waiting. More. Your phone calls are ahead. Help implement the salary cap, and it's actually talking about this extra inning. Because I've I've never thought it made much sense. We'll get to it after the eight o'clock news on my leg in France mcallister. This is the carrier sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred wwl WTI.

Why changed the game for soccer moms? Keep kids out past nine o'clock. Can't take your kids home. Come out on a weekend when you can enjoy the whole game if it's fifteen innings so. There's there's a lot there that you gave me I. You know look. I want to watch baseball this year. Because I I, understand your point of view I think I think the problem for baseball you. You articulated I. Think an issue that people like me. Don't talk about enough. This is not nineteen ninety-four. This is not this is not a period of national prosperity, where people's attention isn't being diverted to a thousand different places that are filled with uncertainty, and in many cases filled with doom and gloom. We didn't have obviously the kind of unemployment. The kind of economic despair we're dealing. Dealing with right now, a sports, a sports league that's dealing with a labor crisis is always gonNA come off as a little tone deaf, even in the best time. Blow when you do it now when you do it now. You are incredibly off pudding and feel like that's part of this that that I think to a degree. We don't talk about enough. You've got folks who are looking for a diversion, and instead you're just creating more conflict, more and more stress in a day and age where those things are. In an overabundance if you will. Well said Sir you know what scrap this season and focus on getting a collective bargaining agreement together you can agree on instead of instead of arguing in public and allowing players. To to argue. On Social Media, yeah? This has been embarrassment for baseball, so here's the thing can. I know with you, I'm with you. You said something, though thank you so much for the phone. Call have a really good week, and you said something though this is not the first time I've brought this up. You said something though. That I could be on board with, but that I- skeptical about happening. If Tonight Rob Manfred and Tony Clark. WHO's the head of the Players Association? If they call it. A joint press conference did it via zoom. And said look. First of all, we can't agree on the economics. Second of all. The health and safety protocols. Excuse me. The health and safety issues are just too immense for us to to really overcome now. Our differences are too wide. It's June nineteenth. We're GONNA start the season in late July. Many diehards aren't gonNA. Take it seriously like we've we can't get. We can't start to season this year. It would be disappointed. It would be a mentally disappointing for somebody who works at a radio station that carries baseball games, but as a baseball fan. Yes, that would disappoint me I. Watch baseball this year, but what? If with that, those two then said, but here's what we're going to do. We understand that even before cove in nineteen. We Have A. That expires at the end of two thousand, twenty one, and as we talk about the next CBS iron out some stuff. We've gotTA. Fix Competitive Imbalance. We've got to address the tanking issue takings a huge problem in baseball. My my solution is simple team that wins the world series gets the number one pick. And if you finish with the record near division, if at that time we're awarding things like all star Games and other events. You don't get them. Let's tie important stuff to onfield performance. But tanking, okay, let's fix that competitive balance. Let seriously come up with a framework for the on field product. Are. There things we can do to put the ball in play a little bit more. Do we really ban shifts? Not really in favor of that, but okay, let's let's say six times. A game and team can deploy shift. Let's really come to a consensus on things like universal. D. H. or no DHL. We can't have two sets of rules for one league. It's stupid. Are we going to expand? What's the minor league structure going to look like what's minor league pay going to be like? How do we better market the sport? We lift the blackout rule that exists on streaming platforms. All of these things and I'm just scratching the surface with them. All of these things draft international players. Let's! Let's talk free, agency. Let's talk arbitration. Let's talk salary cap and we're going to spend. If Clark and Manfred said we're GONNA, spend the next six months in good faith ironing out all this stuff keeping an eye on cove nineteen paying attention to what's happening in the world and the goal is we start day? One pitchers and catchers report February twentieth whatever it's a new. No strike no lockout and the sports starting a new. Okay, the problem is watching these two sides fight. Like it. It looks to me like the end game for both sides is to win something. I don't know what they're trying to win. And frankly to me on a grander scale, it reminds me of the way we talk about things in America where it's. We really don't want to have discussions. We WanNA. Yell over the other side and we want to win the argument well winning the argument rarely gets you anywhere right. You ever win an argument with your spouse. Guess what you're still on the couch that night, right? But, but that's all we WANNA. Do I see in politics? I see it with covid nineteen. I see some of the larger issues. Our country is dealing with and I see it with these two sides it's let's win the fight. The idea is not to win the fight. You'll could tell me all right. We're putting the season. We're not going to play, but we're going to work really hard next six months. And we're going to solve all these issues and we're GONNA compromise and we're not going to try to win our side. We're GONNA. We're GONNA. Try to grow the game by the way also we're GONNA. Take Good accounting of these owners and the ones that are crying poverty. We're going to help them sell their teams. By the way I guarantee you. Nobody's going to sell their team. The mets were already for sale, so they're going to be sold. Maybe Jaylo and a-rod which that'll be a blast, but other than that like. Let's! Let's sit down and hammer out. The sports GONNA look like into the next decade, and maybe some of the field stuff's experimental, and maybe you can implement a salary cap immediately, but you have a five year plan to get there now. You're going to have to give stuff up. There's going to have to be a salary floor I. don't trust owners to spend above. Above it, so I'm going to have to give free agency earlier by the way this is the part that nobody ever wants. They want a salary cap and I go cool free agency after four years instead of six, which means your teams best player now leaves out before instead of six, or are you okay with that? The answer is never yes, but okay, let's. If they were to spend the next six seven months hammering out an agreement as to what the sport is going to be like how it's going to operate how it's going to be marketed how it's going to be played great. That I would say the collateral damage was worth it. We didn't have to endure a fifty game season. The could still be interrupted by cove in nineteen. Then a lot of people aren't going to take seriously. Okay. Unfortunately I have no faith in these two sides to do all that stuff because that stuff's hard. The. Should be all right. You want sixty games. We want seventy games. How about sixty five? They can't do that. I mean honest to God. Thirty franchises were fifty billion dollars can't concede about one hundred fifty mill to players. There's no middle ground here. This is easy now. The COVID, nineteen protocols, health and Safety Nadi, not easy at all. They can't do the easy stuff and so for me. I'm kind of all right. Just give me baseball in any form, and if I can have it now because you might strike next year, you might strike before. Two thousand twenty two. Give me baseball while I can still have it. And that's where I am. In that to me is the real troubling part of all. This is about taking sides I. Think the owners have acted irresponsibly in baseball for years. I don't like this commissioner. This commissioner referred to the World Series Trophy as quote a piece of metal. Dude. ballplayers work their entire lives to touch that trophies on a piece of metal. If you respect the game at all, that's not how you put it. I. Don't trust these two sides to really get to work on the hard stuff that this game has to address. Tanking is a bigger issue in baseball than in basketball. Because when you tank in baseball takes years to recover you taking basketball, you stumble into the topic and the draft. That guy can change your franchise. He shouldn't have to tank to win. There's a lot they have to work on. If you can't do the simple stuff, how can I trust you to do the heart? Twenty minutes after eight, o'clock five, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, the big one pound, seven, hundred free on eighty eight thirty news is ten minutes away more. Your phone calls ahead. It's the carrier sports talk. Show presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred wwl W. Eight thirty news is two minutes away. Seven hundred wwl wwl Melita Arnelle carriers sport sock presented by Kelsey. Chevrolet sterling coming up at nine five. By the way this is I, was just thinking about this. Sterling's on at nine o five tonight now, stirling across a number of different airships on this radio station has worked here to the best of my knowledge for more than twenty two years and here's why this. The very first day chip. That I worked as a paid employee running the board. In nineteen, ninety eight in Mount Adams and Mount Adams on a Saturday afternoon. Iran two shows the first shows hosted. By the anchor of the eight thirty newscast. Matt Release Yes. I brought up that show. I did a terrible job. While you're still here. Yeah, and then from three to six with sterling. and. I was immensely entertained by both I was terrified. That I was gonNA screw something up i. know that I did. But It's it's weird. Thrown into Matt Reese ran his show once and then beheading things over at nine, o'clock to sterling ran his show a number of times Iran. Sterling's more. Five or six times. Pretty 'cause I was seven years old when I did that. In the summer of nineteen ninety, that's how I got my start, but you're still here. I. Mean you ended up doing something right? No, I I think I think most would challenge. I think anybody who's listened tonight with challenge that I've done anything right. But yes, I'm. I'm still here at least as of as of the Mont or maybe next half hour. You can talk about how you ended up on the air I asked. It's not any more complex than that. I mean the first twenty five times. I asked they said no, and then finally like okay man, like just go go go to shell somewhere. Wow, sounds like me. Yeah I mean that's really all there was. There was no real magic like formula. There wasn't like they didn't have much like high level executive meetings. Like to do is put. That mode knows like hey. Jeff Pooku off. Can I fill in for him? Yeah, fine. Whatever that's what happened. So now was like in two, thousand, five or something. Very there's the little mini work biography. The aforementioned Matt has the eight thirty news right now. This is the Arnelle carrier sports talk show presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred wwl. Twenty minutes away from nine o'clock. This is L. carrier sports talk.

Shall we take just take some more phone calls you know. Frank is calling from lovely edgewood. High Frank. How I'm wonderful how `Bout Yourself! Well I'm great I want you to measure me as a baseball fan, okay? How Tall Are you? Doesn't matter, you said measure you, so I wasn't sure. Okay, okay okay yeah yeah. Okay. Here's the deal I grew up. Well I was born Saint Louis. Don't hold me again I'll speak slowly. And and then we moved to Iowa. I was the first one to build the field of dreams. And Nineteen Sixty Four To build a baseball field in a cornfield. If I did. Right out of our back in our backyard, our street went down there. The cornfield there I talked to the farmer. Who let me build a baseball field. So. That's just part so many questions right now, but go ahead. My. Dad played in the Saint Louis. Organization my father-in-law played in Pittsburgh. Organization I felt that my brothers played college. My Son Play College Ball then was drafted. Unfortunately we'll you know lost out because of. Injuries or something like that or you weren't that good, but that's okay. Just. My birth date with my. Wife was a baseball game. Yeah, now we're talking. Okay so I'm just sitting here. Going all right. We all okay. They are football basketball and all this kind of stuff. Baseball and go for the toughest sports to play individually okay? Basketball you know if you're tall, you, you know I can duck a basketball I'm six hundred dollars, but six guys. Five guys forgotten how they can dunk a basketball. Excuse my French soccer. Get up! Kids play baseball soccer so much easier. They just go out and kick a ball. Strikes me as a little bit of an unfair over-simplification, but okay okay I'll grant you that I'm oversimplifying it. Just kind of make my point what I wanted you measure me is a baseball I gotcha. You like baseball and you are Kevin Costner and field of dreams. Yeah. So. Is that it? Means you're a baseball fan. It, so you're at now. You're a big baseball fan. Do you do when we have baseball? How many how many how many hours of baseball a week are you consuming? I listened to the red eye radio or on the TV every single game every game, no matter what. If I'm not if I'm if I'm home is your home? What if you're not at home? Are you watching consuming baseball when you're not at home? Depending on where. Stand if I'm out. You know the restaurant or something if they get the game on Hick you're they're very good. Yeah, let me so you would you, are you a reds fan? Per Se. Yeah all right I'm I am a Cardinal Fan. Don't look. Like to read the cardinals at the same time during the same division. webs our number one. And I leave the cardinals number two. Still the hometown guy when they do play the cardinals. Hang on a second writing some stuff so. Let me, start the top here you until the a baseball field in a cornfield right? Yeah, okay, and you like both the reds and the cardinals that correct and soccer is just kicking a ball around. Is that what you said in? Basketball as long as you're tall, you're good there, okay? I just gotTa make sure I have let me ask you something about your baseball consumption. If you're not watching or listening to a reds game, let's say like. On Sunday night on ESPN. They'll show Sunday night baseball. That's usually not the reds you watch that game. Occasionally occasionally, okay, the the policies we have like four layers of postseason. Do you watch a lot of postseason baseball? Obviously depends on the team point I mean. Obviously. It's a cardinals. Are All about it because you're big cardinals fan so? Go ahead yeah. Big. Cardinals Fan. I am a Cardinal Fan. They have a hell of the organization. And how does that work? I'm not a cardinal's fan. I am a cardinal's fan wall. Pick one. It's okay if you are, but you can't be a cardinal's fan and a cardinal's fan. The cardinals because. I doubt about that no doubt about that, so here's here's kind of ideal the. The original premise I asked the question before. Is I believe see like frank you and I are what we say. We're like Tier One fans right? We're hardcore. Were there no matter what if the sports is way? We're going to be the first ones to embrace it when it comes back, but we're into our skews me. We're into our individual teams, and you're like really into your individual team, so if baseball were to go if they don't play this year, what is that? GonNa do for your. Long term interest in the sport. Well. It's not GonNa be good. I make an annual trip every year spring training out in Scottsdale. Okay Yeah. Hook up with my brothers out there every year. We we do well. We play golf and then hit hit a bunch of games like it. I don't care who they are the rockies yeah. You and I we do the exact we do I. don't go out there to play. Golf courses are way too expensive, but yes, you do the exact same thing. Now let me tell you something when I travelled. Every city I went to catch a ball game senior. You're like my kindred spirit except for the cardinals thing that that isn't making sense but. So I if if baseball stops, they don't play this year. When it comes back, will you? Will you embrace it with the same amount of enthusiasm that you've always had? Harder when they took the you know. Years ago. When they went on strike, it was really tough. came back. Yeah because the cardinals were good. That's how. I'm a recipe from the agree. The cardinals reds thing that's hard to coexist with each. I. Twenty five years in a row to opening day. My wife and I. That was. She a big baseball fan to. Air Plate? For? A very good so. You got like Saint Louis Pittsburgh thing going on. So that's a little this little weird. It's fine, it's it's it's okay. I'm not a big Fan. I'm not a big fan of Pittsburgh of anything. John Pittsburgh's of fun. Do you only have to favorite teams? Are there more? I like the rockies. They were going to grant. We like. You like you like three national? League teams. Are. I lived all over. Countries I. You know I just. Go with the flow I. Really quick circle back to the building a baseball field in the Cornfield committed the movie about you. While I think they should. But I'm not Kevin Costner so you. They probably won't do that. What happened? Today the grow corn on it. Like what is it still there I I have no clue I hate to tell you. That was back in the late sixties. That now makes a Lotta sense lot of a lot of stuff going on in the late sixties. Now makes all the sense. Frank, thank you so much for the phone. Call I've I've enjoyed it. It's been my pleasure. You have no idea, thank you. It's eleven away from nine o'clock. Five three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, and one, eight, hundred, the big one pound, seven, hundred free on eighteen hundred ships. Should we take the break now? But making decision very good. I liked it very authoritative. Take the break now, pinhead! That's what he said. Eleven away from nine are no carrier. Sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet seven hundred W O W. Six away from the news at Nine on seven hundred seventy. Can't even say the Dan call letters seven hundred WWL W. Here a little bit damp in here way too long. Long Day was on at noon today. Okay I I really worked hard sitting in a chair, talking about sports. This is really hard work. Sterling the pride of Wright State University is coming up at nine zero five between now, and then we're going to try to take as many phone calls as as possible I. I gotTa be honest with you. I spent the entire commercial break trying to wrap my brain around everything that last caller throughout us. So, my apologies if I sound distracted. Maybe that's why I can't say the call letters. Randy is in Warsaw. Kentucky I would imagine Poland. Hi Randy and love. Atlanta lasts call because he exactly revert. On a cardinal fan and then a fan, I grew up watching the reds. And I've been. I've lived in the county or the Kentucky area. My whole life I got to watch Johnny Bench. And what I absolutely Love Baseball, my dad, we should go to double header to the dodgers. The Francais Garvey and I became I became a fan of ten Simmons, and I was a chequered county high school the hall of fame this here. I'm telling you. You know. For Johnny Beth he'd be. He'd been he'd been the best pitcher in baseball back in that air, but Johnny becks is definitely better than him, but. I mean so. That guy when I listen to talk, he says well I like to read I love cardinals while I love it when they make it now, I love card. So you decided to you like the cardinals more because you like Ted Simmons. I grew up my for my. I was born in Missouri and then. Like the whole, the whole ball of wax, the Saint Louis I mean just like. Everything about they had. Jack Clark, but here's the. Here's the thing about that back. Then the reds and cardinals were not in the same division. The cardinals were in the national, League East had really good teams in the eighties eighty two on the whole thing eighty-five win should have won. The World Series got a bad call and game six. Eighty seven they go to the world series Lou the twins teams, but at least then the teams were in different divisions, but now they're they're both in the same division that that would strike me as hard Aimo I give. Corona coronavirus I bet on the redskins and the cardinals to win the division I mean I like those. I can walk I can come in watch for. Twenty five games a year for the reds I have an RV. Six game for the cardinals. I absolutely love baseball. Let me ask you question. When the when the reds and cardinals had that fight in two thousand ten. Who Side Did you take I? was there? I was getting a beer when? Melina Phillips Molina. Like whose side because you like both teams? That have been a fight. But whose side did you take? I was obviously rooting for the reds to win the fight and the game they didn't. I don't think they won that game. Because I think he was doing it as a as a gesture and he I just think it was October blown. It was like like watching your kids fight. You know I mean is. Tough got it suck. And I didn't even get to see that cutback. Watch that you just missed it I. said Oh. You've gotta be kidding me. That game! They thought and I was like. And then you listen to the reds. Fans Molina. Because, he was fighting our guy. I mean like now. Look I respect. Yacht Air Molina might be a hall of fame at that day. Yeah, I plead Yada your. Game I, put you on Ear Molina. When I go to Saint Louis, they don't they didn't they didn't do. Yeah they did man I. Do Randy look opening day two, thousand, thirteen or fourteen, the cardinals day was against the reds. It was a week after opening day here I'm there my Barry Larkin Jersey Brandon. Phillips was the leadoff batter for the reds and the whole ballpark and I don't blame him. That's fine, but the whole ballpark Buddha. That's rich Red Cardell. That's not the Saint Louis you you've been. What the Hell's the. That's the reds, cardinals, fans. That was that mean hey. I! Love your accent, big man, thanks! I appreciate the I can't. Thank you Randy! We have found two peoples. If nothing else, we've accomplished zero tonight. Okay, let's let's let's just we've got nothing done tonight, but we have found two people who, actually in their lives root for the reds and cardinals simultaneously next. We're going to find people who for the Bengals steelers simultaneously. And? That just doesn't make a lot of sense. But I. Appreciate the phone call nonetheless. Speaking of not making sense I'm back on Monday on ESPN. Fifteen thirty at three zero five lance will be here Monday at six o five sterling will be on tonight at nine zero five, but I.

"The cunningham the great american okay. Let's set up. Today are scheduled at noon interview. Mayor john cranley about the corruption happening on city council and because of the news conference coming up in about four minutes according to sheriff. Dave keaton involving the governor of Kentucky andy bashir or we're going to ask the mayor of the mayor's agree to come in at one o'clock to talk about what's happening on city council with the bags of cash being used to in order to Bribe council members to vote a certain way then. Two o'clock today. We're going to have brad winchester up on two thirty five to forty way of sharing coolidge of the inquirer with some more revelations happening. And what's happening on city council and i. I could not imagine a time when the city is in worse shape than it is right now. You're burning bridges literally brent spence bridge. The west knows viaduc is collapsing. You have the streetcar know where that's going to cost. Four hundred million dollars all in overtime writing happening in the city. I've been downtown repeatedly recently and you throw a bowling ball. Not hit a pin on most nights up and down vine street. There can't be many taxes being collected or economic activity occurring. Plus you have a sense that the city is spiraling out of control because to get Developmental projects done. You have to show up with bags of cash. One good man former bangle and do kway said. I don't wanna play the game according to the fbi. Yesterday he participated as a whistle blower to blow the whistle and jeff pastor and others and and the others were sharing. Coolidge comes in at the inquirer. She's one of the best investigative reporters going on this issue. And she's going to be with us about two thirty five to forty today to talk about new developments because the rumors in the media are hot and heavy about. who's next. Who's the next council member fall. Do you think jeff pastor or tomorrow denard did each of those dastardly acts only one time and something has to be answered. And i wish i was at the news conference to ask questions to the fbi and the us attorney's office and that is why did it take so long because allegedly in pastors case. He took office in about six months after he took office. He let it be known to the developmental community in cincinnati. My votes for sale. The allegations of city developmental projects prosecutors say the thirty six year old jeff pastor who has four children plus one on the way republican solicited money from developers in a times accepted bags of literal cash in return for his vote or other a favourable treatment also pastors friend tyrann marshals described as a middleman by prosecutors as. He was arrested on tuesday yesterday. Also sometimes the cash was literally handed to jeff pastor said. Us attorney david dealers who will lead the prosecution. Some of this was extremely shall we say brazen. He's charged with among other things. Bribery money laundering. Extortion wire fraud theft of honest services and conspiracy if convicted could face up to eighty years in jail in reality. It's more like a five to ten years in jail. A twenty page indictment of the actions of jeff pastor and since in one occasion. He and marshall solicit cash for his continued support pastor marshall as for twenty two thousand five hundred dollars on the second trip. The first one was thirty. Five thousand dollars in cash in three separate payments in exchange for promise official action the second time another twenty two five settle on a twenty thousand dollar deal to be paid to ten thousand dollars cash inducements few days after the first ten thousand dollar cash payment came through the documents say pastor called one of his business project leaders quote. You will come to the city. The city will sell it to you and it will pass unanimously. That is my prophecy. My brother you will come to the city it will pass unanimously later. Passer told project leaders on the developmental project that quote thanks god for the little twenty unquote but one an additional two hundred thousand dollars per year but between himself and marshall the middle guy the medium income. Do the right thing is doing. You also took trips to miami florida on private planes. During the trip pastor told an undercover fbi agent posing as a future business partner that he would ensure favorable official action for the project and explained that he could receive money through a nonprofit called oma u. m. h and that was a that was a charitable charitable charitable company. Put together and. This happened at the end. Beginning the end of twenty eighteen which is two years ago so in cranleigh joins us after one o'clock today i wanna know what council members knew. What did they know. And why did the fbi fbi us attorney. Wait two years to let somebody so dirty remain in office voting on all kinds of issues involving hundreds of millions of dollars. Pastor would suggest a price for support on each project and then marshall the go-betweens morning what asked project leader a willie The governor of spreads. Yes which connects northern kentucky and cincinnati. The incident occurred around two forty five. Am information at this point. Indicates that a truck jackknifed on the brent spence bridge and was struck by a second truck carrying potassium hydroxide no reports of injuries at this time. Thank god but a fire broke out. And it's caused visible damage to the bridge. And its concrete decking both northbound and southbound. I seventy five. Traffic has been closed to allow cleanup efforts and engineers to inspect the bridge. The fire has been contained. Reg inspectors are on the site but due to the extremely high temperatures of the structure. They have not begun the inspection and we will not ask them to do so until it is safe. The extent of damage will have to be determined by those inspectors and it is too premature to speculate the impact. The fire s had to the bridge. The bridge at best will be closed several days but we ought to be prepared for more disruption potentially significantly more disruption than that we in kentucky are working closely with our colleagues at the ohio department of transportation the federal highways administration. I have a call into governor. Dewine who i work with closely on so many different things. We'll be talking to a transportation cabinet secretary. Elaine chao later today i want to underscore a few things. I this is a very important bridge. Not just for the region but for the nation and we are committed fully committed to getting it back into service but the safety of the public and of our and ohio's employees are absolutely critical so in the next we hope hours maybe a little longer. We're going to need your patience. Patience is necessary to make sure we don't send anybody on that bridge to do the inspection or to clean up the debris until we know they're going to be okay. The second piece that i want to highlight is resiliency because we need to be prepared for the disruption that this will cause we need our employers to start making plans now now given that we're in cova. Everybody who can work virtually should already be working. Virtually but this is just another opportunity to provide them that protection unbeliev other employers should look at potentially different schedules. That will spread out win. Their workers might be on the roads to lessen the amount of traffic that right now is having to be diverted and finally what i would say is be safe. Be safe around this area. I think we already have one other accident. It's going to be difficult at least in the next couple days. That might be frustrating out there on the roads at twenty twenty. It's pretty frustrating. And and in a lot of ways but but we need your help. Nothing is worth Another accident nothing is worth your life or or anyone around you. So patients are as what we're going to need and disruption is what we're going to have to deal with. I'm gonna turn it over to our transportation cabinet secretary. Jim gray who has been in touch with with all levels local national and ohio today and i know how committed he is understanding the issues governor of kentucky talking about the closure of i seventy five bridge that has been discussed about being replaced for more than twenty years. There were talks. About replacing the brent spence bridge that we're underway up until about march when cove it hit the talks between kentucky and ohio broke down. Let's go now to transportation secretary tim gray. This challenge that we have as you said. And you said well we are committed to restoring this bridge and this quarter. We're committed to doing it as quickly as possible. And as safely importantly as safely as possible. The governor pointed out that the the accident occurred of course early this morning. The fire was an intense fire. The potassium hydroxide was the chemical that was in one of the one of the trucks and it burned intensely so that has prevented us from our bridge inspectors and the debris from being removed as quickly as perhaps might have been otherwise possible but the work is being done. And i want to say that. I've been clearly impressed once again by the caliber and the quality of the staff that the kentucky transportation cabinet has on this site. Our bridge inspectors not only from the local from our district. Six but also from our central office are here committed to finding the resolution to it as quickly as we can Also want to thank and acknowledge commissioner. Jack march banks ohio commissioner of transportation in ohio and as the governor said governor wine and especially at the federal level department of transportation. Todd inman was called me this morning. At six thirty he'd already been alerted and they offered the full support of the department of transportation. Us department transportation and federal highways as. Well todd jeeter locally. I can't go through every one that is involved in this. But i can say to you that this has been a very quick mobilization of resources. We're going to do everything. Possible as the governor said we are committed to doing everything possible to restore of course the traffic and the supply chain that this represents in this area detour. Traffic detours have been already alerted. Folks have already been alerted to the detour routes To seventy five. And i four seventy one and excuse me and our trucking industry has been alerted to this as well and through the various notification channels in the trucking industry. So i think governor. I think that's as much of an update. You you said it. Well that we optimistically. Of course it may be days but it's better to. It's better to plan for what may not be the most optimistic. And that's where we are today but it's important to also recognize that we are. We have access to resources that can execute quickly implement corrective actions quickly. That's the secretary. Jim gray you heard from governor. Andy bashir what you did not hear from the kentucky transportation cabinet was that this bridge has been declared functionally obsolete and it could very well be. The cause of this accident is because there are no breakdown lanes on the bridge. If something happens to attract there's nowhere to pull over other vehicles not able to see. The cars stopped in front of them until it's too late. We don't know exactly for sure yet. If that's what happened in this case but we do know that for twenty years. They've talked about the need for replacing this bridge without taking any action warning that something like this accident could happen. That could lead to prolonged closure of the bridge because it no longer is able to handle the hundred eighty thousand vehicles. The travel each day the bridge well over fifty years old was designed to handle only eight thousand cars our next updates at twelve thirty am. Brian colmes newsradio seven ever w misdirected nine. Now my fellow americans. Instead mayor john cranley will be here. One zero five about the debacles many happening on city council to a five. Today's bread went strip. I'm gonna talk to. Of course the mayor about the bs bridge. But that has a lot more to do with kentucky and ohio and the feds than it does with the mayor cincinnati. He's a bit player in that. But he's not a big player when it comes to the corruption on city council and i know the rumors in the media talked to everybody in the media all the time and there's other names rumors coming out relative to bags of cash in development other names. This is on top of the gang of five in which five members of council took the law into their own hands cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars almost irrelevant. But you know those five was the last time. Cincinnati had five of the nine members of council under a special prosecutor state criminal referral from the from the state of ohio for their illegal behavior quarterback by pg said felt a course and then one of the gang of five to my denard is shaking down the fine attorney. Tom gabel men for bags of cash. Because she's getting evicted from her apartment. Baldwin building as you go down seventy one the baldwin building on the left. She never paid rent. She had a late model car. Took lots of vacations and she needed bags of cash to keep it. Going and gable men. The attorney could not believe what he was hearing from tamayo denard he wanted he give her bags of cash to get her vote and he went to the fbi. Indu kway went to the fbi. And these are whistle blowers and great american's in due quays to former bengals star from notre dame and each of them said to the fbi man. This ain't right. Something's going on gable. Men could not believe what he was hearing from a member of council to get bags of cash in order to secure her vote. It's kind of unbelievable. Thanks short break go cunningham. The great american live at your home of the bengals. Newsradio seven hundred w automobile really cunningham. We're blessed to live interesting inconsequential times. I wish things were just a little less interesting. Literally burning. bridges isn't something. I thought was going to confront us this morning this afternoon. I didn't think it was possible. Two hundred thousand cars. If you're listening to me and northern michigan or in alabama and you're coming up the hotel human trail from i seventy five. That goes from naples. Florida really miami florida across alligator alley to naples all the way up to the up How long fifteen hundred miles. Two thousand miles. You cannot come over the brent spence bridge from kentucky ohio it is out of service and i pray to god. It's three or four days and it could be three to four months or cut be three to four years. Showing government absolute incompetence absolute incompetence of our government at every level federal state municipal. Not township. i live in a functioning. Sycamore township and local urban governments complete. Collapse i sat here with you and twenty. Au two. it was charlie. Lucan was the mayor. And at that point everyone knew we needed a new brent spence bridge nam named after a us congressman brent spence northern kentucky. It was conjured thought about in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight because interstate. Highway system was Coming through. I can recall going down in spring. Grove cemetery on saturday to visit the grave of my good friend. Steven are adams. I said to my wife. When i was a boy. I remember my dad in a car. And i said daddy how come. There's no stop lights on the street. It was i seventy five. And he said well billy. This is called an expressway. I said this is unbelievable. That was like a nineteen ninety. Nine hundred sixty two sixty three when the thing opened up. It's unbelievable unbelievable here. We are twenty years after it was considered to be replaced and it would take at least from this point. Eight to ten years to replace it that no government has made action and it's costing me all of us now to one thousand motorists hopefully a few days maybe not a few weeks or a few months a replacement about twenty years ago and sheriff dave recalls. There was a terrible accident in northern kentucky. Coming down to cut in the hill and martha layne collins showed okay. That's it we're gonna straighten this thing out. That took years. I looked to my right on. I seventy one now. Highway folks have been working on. I seventy one through the second cut in the ellen kenwood for years not even close to getting it done in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight without the access to computers and digital matters coding without the access to modern building techniques the americans allied and live in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight within five years said. Do we need a bridge. Yes here comes seventy five or is it going to be covington newport west okay. Let's put it right there. Within five years of that it was scheduled to open on november. The twenty second nineteen sixty three at two pm. We know what happened on that date. It was delayed until the next week. And now it's been functioning that what for sixty years and we've known for twenty years that had to be replaced because there's nowhere to pull off if someone is on the brent spence bridge and you have a breakdown or a difficulty doesn't have a lane you go to and at out of harm's way so now. This horrible accident happened this morning. Involving a terrible ignited chemicals resulting in probable damage at least to the concrete. And maybe the superstructure of the brent spence bridge. I pray to god. It's opening a week. That would be a miracle and no damage to the concrete. It is government incompetence at its best every presidential candidate. George bush forty forty three said. We're going to replace it then. Obama was in front of it saying replace it. And then trump came here. And so we gotta replacing. There was a golden moment about eight nine years ago. In which mitch mcconnell kentucky headed up the senate and your good friend in mind. John bainer headed up the house speaker and own nine and ten ten twelve years ago in which it was said at a meeting. Obama turns to these two and a private meeting. And so mcconnell john bainer. Here's the moment and mcconnell said obama said. Well what do you guys want and mcconnell said. Well we got the bridge up there in northern kentucky s and we had this reservoir system and in southern kentucky. He said. I'll tell you what Give about two billion dollars in the deal. And we'll do the reservoir system and the damn system and in southern kentucky and then he said john one. Don't we do the bridge and obama. Kind of snickered. And said well name. The john bainer bridge. Who who knows brent's fences. Do you know who brent pences northern. The only reason it was named after him sam rayburn the democratic speaker of the house from texas. It was there forever. He always struck deals. He needed a vote on some bill. So he goes to brent spence says i need your vote on this said i'll tell you what sam. How about giving us that. Bridge northern kentucky and samsa. When and after you the brent spence bridge. That's five years the americans then living sixty seventy years ago. Guess what one five years done here. We are in the twenty first century. We're no closer to a bridge now than we were before. The only good thing that might happen out of this is a no one was killed we think. And secondly this might be the impetus to get it done but now the problem if we'd done it. The right way the old brent spence bridge bs would stay in place as the new ones being built next to it a little bit. you know. Just come down. You stay on the old bridge for the next five to ten years and then when the new bridge is available you shut down the bridge or keep it open for local traffic to covington which is a great idea. I love covington. And you're ready to go. And so now. What do we do if the superstructure and three thousand degree heat has melted the support of the bs. Bridge were screwed tattooed and barbecued for five to ten years. Are you kidding me. I pray to god it's something cosmetic and not something structural but to go back to the story bainer says now i don't believe in earmarks. An earmark is when you put a paragraph and bill at the end that wasn't specifically went through the legislative process. And it's done to do a favor for somebody and bainer set of asked him this on the air and by way john. Bainer and debbie bainer are great people. And they're enjoying their retirement on marco island and they're good people but he says look. I don't believe in so no if john bainer eleven years ago had said you know what i'm gonna make an exception for earmarks for the prince spence bridge in fact the john bainbridge sheriff day would you like to go the john bainer bridge care. He says he cares a lot. No i don't care the brent spence bridge. Nobody cares about the b. s. bridge. Call it john bainer bridge but bainer looked at obama and he looked at mcconnell said. No i don't believe in that. So mcconnell got the damn system in southern kentucky and we lost brent spence bridge twelve years ago and right now might be opened. Now we don't have a choice and we'll take five seven years eight years ten years. If we went through the system of building a second bridge next to it that would be operational and then take down the now. When over choice the incompetence of government is unbridled and throw in the western viaduct which has concrete falling on people's heads and that's at the national level and the state level. How about the house bill. Six everything going on with that pay to play schemes. I energy literally billions of dollars and we start paying that bill january the first on your duke energy bill or whatever you're paying for them the streetcar in cincinnati streetcar nowhere interest principal replacement of the cars over the next thirty years. Approximately four hundred million dollars. The city is going to pay and the streetcar to nowhere. I was downtown again last night. Went to jeff. Ruby steakhouse with friends to celebrate things and looked at the streetcar. A couple times zero people on it. The government schools are in complete utter collapse. They were in collapsed before covid nineteen in urban areas. There is no public education going on the government. Schools are not in business. Throw in the. I seventy one repairs to my right throwing the bags of cash. Are you kidding me. What developmental expertise did tamayo denard. or jeff. Passer having their life than indicated in their thirties they want to strike deals with children's hospital and get thirty million dollars. More you vet simpson. The level of incompetence adr rid nelson judge such a high level. She's on abc news. Thirty million dollars finally by a vote of five before they said. No the shakedown is too great children's hospital. This is ridiculous and then you have to council members taken bags of cash and another to follow. According to rumors. Dade keat knows who they are. I'm not gonna mention names. But there's a grand puppeteer and a grand convener. To whom jeff pastor and my denard both pay attention to about how to get things done bags of cash completely overwhelmed and others are going to be involved public money and i'm going to ask. We got john cranley coming up in about twelve minutes that all the votes they took in office have been soiled and stained all the votes need to be recalled in and discussed right. And i don't know. I'd like to ask the fbi. Some enterprising news reporters should ask the us. Attorney to villers. How come you waited from october. November of two thousand eighteen. until now. why did you wait more than two years to pinch jeff pastor. Why was it because you wanted to see how deep it was what. That's a good reason. While he was in office he voted literally on hundreds of millions of dollars of projects and the city of cincinnati. And how many are dirty doing he did this. One time in his whole life. think tamai dinar. Did it one time with tom. Gabel men the attorney because she was had no money couldn't pay rent never paid any rent. They thought nobody's going to affect a council member began to fiction proceedings. That's one became required. That tom gabel men the attorney give bags of cash. And thank god that. Tom called the fbi and said you're not believe what's going on. Thank god former bengal shenandoah and do way and duke wake called the fbi said look. I'm a developer and i sent. Something's going wrong here. Was he solicited. I don't know but according to the fbi in du quai was a whistle blower. Who did the right thing like tom. Gabel men and said this ain't right. I would assume that he cooperated with the fbi. The department of justice and that's among other reasons the pastor was caught doing what so. How's it legitimate. The last two years for the federal government to keep in office a crook like jeff pastor while investigating a better. Be something pretty serious coming up next whether it's bags of cash the streetcar the failing public schools the bridges that are on fire literally. The bridges are on fire. I seventy one repairs on forever billions and billions lost than p p p p p p p small business owners needed but out. House committee did quickie report. That at least two or three hundred billion dollars has been misspent on. Ppp helping small businesses. Stay afloat that it was looted especially in the large cities which are completely dysfunctional. Try to chicago. Try to go to cleveland trying to go to portland and those individuals voted to keep the same political party in charge that are causing the problems in the first place. It's incredible you can't believe in so. Let's take a short break when we continue. We got some mayor. John cranley and i may ask him whether or not. He feels responsible for any of this as the mayor of our city. John cranley i'd bet my life on this is not dirty. But when you're the leader of an organization that has failed this miserably. john cranley ameritech responsibility. Plus after two o'clock today spread win stripped the council member. This is veterans day. Talking about the apocrypha sees and and in washington and more plus the vaccine is coming out supposedly in the next two or three weeks. The fda approved emergency use so in the next two to three weeks. It's going to be out. And i don't know if i would take a vaccine take vaccine when dr dean carey at the christ hospital tells me willie take the vaccine. At that point. I will take the vaccine. But until then i'm not going to take the vaccine. I got my mask dried hair. When i'm in public i wear it. The big news of course is five thirty today with governor. Mike dewine are rumors. She's gonna crack down and shut down at five thirty today and eddie and the rocks gonna have the news conference for you. Plus after two thirty today we'll be sharing coolidge of the inquirer to talk about Other shoes to drop. There's no more shoes to drop. The city of cincinnati is in complete collapse. The taxes are high. The streets are empty. The schools suck and council members have bags of cash delivered to buy their vote and the bridges burning and more. So let's continue. I don't want to be negative. i don't want to be negative. Let's continue with more and we have thousands on hold. I gotta get to at some point. Dave keating says it'll take as many calls as i should so i may change at some point but until then let's continue billy cunningham. The great american.

Christmas trees that look terrible council members being being charged with serious offenses including taking bags of cash and the us attorney and the f. b. i. says there's a culture of corruption in the city. Cincinnati joan. you and i now is the mayor of our city. John cranley and john cranley welcome again to the bill cunningham. Show john how are you bail on. Good hat veteran cleaning my dad. It was a vietnam veteran and To all veterans out there j. j. good man later on. We have a couple of veterans coming up warren. Davidson and bread winston. But until. then can you respond to the united states. Government the personages of the us attorney fbi saying that in in your city of cincinnati that there's a culture of corruption and you're the mayor. Well i think it's Ingredients breach of public. Trust that to council members Have been arrested for bribery. And i'm glad that they're going to excise out the corruption. That's not how i conduct myself. Or the city administration to city council members legislative body not the executive body. But yes it's a sad day for the city and it's totally outrageous And it considering the fact that they have them on tape i hope councilman passable resign immediately. And i still pray. I pray for him and his family and his wife is pregnant but this is outrageous breach of public trust and And he needs to resign immediately. Well mini these acts are going on really over a two year period. Did you have an inkling suspicion. A sense that something was going awry money was exchanging hands. Tom gabel mond the attorney. Who was a lawyer for the county on the riverfront got bags of cash given to give to my art and now i guess fifty five thousand dollars in cash a monthly stipend up to three hundred thousand dollars more reject pastor and as you were presiding. Did you notice anything going on. That looked a little bit askance at the wrong people were getting these development projects and the right people. I can do kway. We're told we got a problem and do quai. Who's been used by the city quite often and full disclosure. I have i know he is. I've seen him a couple of times. We've had a discussion once or twice. Not about this about other more friendly matters seems like up straight guy seems good. Did you have any suspicion as the mayor of our city. This was going aung. No but i think you described big ableman story with demise denard and obviously these stories at least two different people giving money to jeff pastor Council members shouldn't our legislators. They're not supposed to be deal makers and said that yesterday. My public statement. So i have for years. Said publicly The council member should stop micromanaging economic development deals. I had no idea that they were crimes involved but it's outrageous. It was bad policy regardless of criminality but now we see the town council members have been arrested in the brought humor onto the city over the last six months. I i go back you know. Many years now serve with great people. Like david manage services to seventies and serve with charlie lucan and mark. Mallory i think about you know grace like murray season. Good and and it'd be rolling over in his grave and bobby stern and just a tradition of good government Has really been besmirched by the city council over the last six months. Well i'm sure you did not know. Should you have known as the leader of our cities showed you have known what was going on in city council. And you're the mayor. Do you take responsibility for any of this. I didn't know that people are committing crimes. People criminals responsible for criminal behavior and And these are criminal acts. And i'm glad they're being arrested. No i can tell you that. I i operate in the utmost honesty integrity may agree or disagree with policies but I take public services a shaker duty and absolutely not. I can tell you this though bill. you know we will oppose anything that we see like this and and and to me you know right now january first two thousand and twenty one. Twenty twenty one. The people of ohio are going to suffer a tax hike based on the bribery scheme of hp six. Now i don't believe the governor or a lot of other people are corrupt like larry household is corrupt but i think they should repeal the tax immediately and the fact is that that not only was that the worst bribery scheme in the history of ohio. But the payoff was to raise your taxes in mine honor utility bills every month and that's going into effect on january first so first of all any any corrupt active is brought to my attention. I will oppose. And i believe the same standard should apply to the state of ohio for about to raise our taxes. January first in exchange for the bribery that led us to hp six now in the last two years according to media accounts. I have sharon coolies coming up later on on this matter and of us believe in the media. There's other shoes to drop in the future. I would imagine the last two years to jeff pastor and to my denard before she resigned from council about six months ago voted on numerous deal. Says wasn't the only one i'd be hard pressed to believe that jeff pastor only did this one time and he was conscious as one time. It's the city going to review over the last two years. All the development deals in which jeff pastor or tamai denard had an interest in voting to determine whether those deals are the result of corrupt behavior. Absolutely absolutely and this is exactly the same standards that should apply to the state of ohio who raising taxes january first as the payoff for the bribery at hp. Six and the governor can call a special session. Of general assembly to repeal it needs to be repealed immediately and similarly if there are no tax hikes that we approve it if there was something like that That pastor to my with be evolved absolutely call for a revote and And we absolutely look into that mayor. Have you cooperated with or given statements to the f. b. i. or other law enforcement whenever aft- absolutely but i have not been involved in these cases. A lot of these deals work behind the scenes. And what you're talking the hallway. I can't the charlotte. Shall i say the grace of city council legislative bodies when you now you are you under suspicion in the sense that if i talked to someone and jeff pasture or on are the next person to fall. I'm kind of led to believe there's at least one more person involved and knowing that you might be take doesn't make it difficult to do. The city's business when massive criminal fraud is taking place among council members. And that there's tape recordings of what occurred developers and with lawyers and others. Doesn't it make it difficult to do. Your job in the city when you have criminal indictments plus you got the gang of five headed up by pagey sitting feld and the special prosecutor is out there. Understand that That has been put off to the side. Possibly because of this but you have nine members on council five involved in the gang of five in which a criminal prosecutor was appointed to investigate the criminal activity and to six one was jeff pastor. Hell that's two thirds of council is either under criminal investigation indictment or going to prison. What does it say about the governance of the city of cincinnati. Bill i can tell you. Is that the city manager. The city administration and myself a are acting honestly and in good faith and and yes. We are heartbroken that that two members of city council are giving a stain to the reputation of the city of cincinnati. It's outrageous they've been arrested. We are not like that and you can agree or disagree with policies. But i do everything assuming that every conversation i have is being taped. I assume that every text. I have will be a public record. I conduct myself accordingly. And i'm not afraid of the things that i do. Come and go away. And i i was taught that by the greats Mayors lucan. Tom and charlie and friends of mine that you just got you know. Be candid be straightforward. You know people know exactly where i stand on every issue. I'm not afraid. And i think over the long term that gives a sense of credibility and integrity to our public service. Because they know they'll people remember over time that you never lied to them even when you told them something. They didn't want to hear That overtime you divert you earn a reputation of of honesty. Airplane reason to believe that other councilmember salah charged in the weeks ahead. I don't know you know. I just hope. If there's more corruption they will arrested an excise it out of city hall. And i you know and the manager and i and the administration appreciate. Us attorney devilliers. 'cause we have no tolerance for corruption and we want excise and i just hope but bill. I think it's important. You point out that the that one party will we have corruption here. Obviously the city. That's been rooted out democrat and republican in columbus. It's all republicans right now. It's one party rule and there but the fruits of that corruption of raising your taxes on january one and that can and should be repealed immediately. Your friend and mine. Jason williams has a column in the enquirer headline is how this city is cincinnati's selfish culture pave the way for corruption from republican and democrat council members. Believe it or not. You've been around almost a quarter of a century. You're relatively young guy. You must have started you. Were like fourteen years old. But you've been around for a very long time. Is there a selfish culture of corruption and the city of cincinnati. That you head. I think jason's column Points out to specific examples among others. He he talks about the horrible way. Children's hospital was traded Which again led to this. Culture of council members micromanaging economic development deals. I called that out. Like i think like i said i've been calling his stuff out on policy matters for years. The council should not be micromanaging deals and then the second example talked about the fact that the overwhelming majority of voters wanted to streetcar and he stopped at a whole bunch of people flip-flop not including myself. I have opposed it as a waste of money and that that god has a sense of lack of accountability by members of council. I also think the forty your terms for city council members has bred a sense of invincibility. And i'm glad that the voters have restored to your term starting in twenty twenty one And i think that will make people a little bit more accountable. And i hope so well. We'll see what happens. I know this in the past about future. Political ambitions becoming a governor or us congressmen. Whatever the ads almost write themselves on. You got burning bridges. You have christmas trees that look like crap. You got streetcar going nuts. You got riots in the city cincinnati. You got defunding. The police you got council members taken bags of cash. How do you respond to these political ads. They're going to be running against you and uglies county if you run statewide. If that's the way cranley runs city cincinnati. We don't want that here. And how would you respond to that. Well i feel like the old line from harry truman. if if You know where they made him a deal. They said if you stop trying to truck truth about the us we'll stop lying about the fact. Is i oppose the police. The fact is i supported our police and we stop the looting in two days. We didn't have months of all that stuff. The fact is i balance the budget and incredibly difficult year pans out and make a great public health department. Where the only city in ohio to be rising population and economic growth ones rest of ohio under one party. Republican rule for thirty years has been going downhill. us per capita income is up in cincinnati and hamilton county. Us per capita income. In ohio is down it used to be above. Us average so the facts are just not the on the side. Criminals are responsible for criminal pages. And i will root out anything. That is the fruit of of corrupt poison. Just like the people of deserve to be spared. The corruption that is leading tax increases on january first from hp six they sixty one million dollar bribery scandal. That the general assembly of ohio has yet to repeal with is in just a bad law. that doesn't mean anything. It means your electricity. Bill going up on january. First they repeal lastly john cranley. The bridge is on fire burning. Bridges my friend in yours. Tony benn lives in boone county. It's now about an hour and a half trip. There's rumors at the pavement needs to be replaced all that kind of stuff. I know it's not your responsibility kentucky and it's also but everyone in cincinnati there's gotta be two hundred thousand cars a day. What is the status. Of the of the burning brent spence bridge. Is it in better shape than the christmas tree out. The brent spent look a lot of money to washington. Dc and yet. They don't fix the bridges of the highway. They send the money to foreign nations and governments. And we you know. We had at one point in time mcconnell from kentucky and bainer in ohio and they can't bring back our own tax six bridge. Yeah we're getting screwed by the by the people in washington. Lastly john embarrassed about all this corruption. This embarrassing very sad. Very detroit cleveland. Or something look. I take my sacred osa very very seriously and i can tell you that i am. The members of the city administration are very very heartbroken by this. Because it makes us all look bad. We don't deserve to be that guilt by association. And i'm glad that is being rooted out. Thank you john. Cranley the mayor of our city. But let's face it there's more indictments coming and strong rumors. There's at least one other councilmember involved on tape doing things and The city's black is you got two black is we'll have another either get blackened we got thomas denard and jeff pastor. The next one is going to be ugly. The rumors are true and rumors circle the globe before truth can take. Its first step. So i have no idea if these rumors in the media are accurate. But if it is you're talking about one third of council taken bags of cash influence peddling. You're talking about a city that spiked some of the things you talk about. That has the funding police. It's got the burning bridges. Got the streetcars got has got the christmas trees. Got serious problems here and we'll see what happens down the road but it's embarrassing. I consider myself as cincinnati. And even though i lived there when i went to xavier but i consider myself in a sense of cincinnati and and for our city to go through. This is embarrassing. We need another charter right party. That's democrat or republican but charter is which is how began because of your friend. Boss cox talk to your dad about cox. They were probably drinking buddies in mount adams. I'm telling you now. The city is in deep deep psychological moral and financial trouble. Well certainly the case bill and you pointed the some lambs. I've stood up against council trying to micromanage children's hospital. I stood up against the streetcar. I stand up against corruption. And i've said for years that councils gotta stop hurting the people by getting involved in these deals. I didn't know it was a crime but glad it's being rooted out and Yes we change people to run for city council who will run with honesty integrity and not make these kinds of criminal. Acts john cranley godspeed. Good luck because you have a lot of work ahead of you. Can you fix the christmas tree quickly. It looks terrible. Yeah yeah we're working on it.

The great american janis most red wind strip the second rector. The district and congressman. Welcome again to the bill cunningham. Show and brad. How're you. i'm doing fine. We'll be with you today and we want to talk about many things veterans the vaccine etc. Since you're in washington. And i consider you normal you of like cincinnati that came out of the hills and you're going to being in congress a few more years than to go back into a real life and You only been there. I guess about eight or ten years are you. Are you surprised that the culture that the idea of a crecy that it's time now for the for the seventy i think it's going to be seventy four million people that voted for trump to shut up. Stand down because we set the good example in twenty sixteen for how to treat incoming president besides the vaccine. We're gonna talk about how about the apocrypha in washington have added up to here. Well fisher tremendous then. It's changed a lot even in the short time that i've been in congress and you know jimmy so much of it. It's just really all about power i you know. I joined the military. You know speaking veterans day nineteen ninety eight. When bill clinton was the president united states and jointed. We kept getting attack. And they'll clinton was my commander in chief and my present it. I didn't vote for him. But i understood that. I live in a country where we get to elect our leaders and what we have today is a media and group of politicians and people within agencies that they think they get to decide rather than us being a country of the people by the people for the people they try and change the outcome of which we saw with russian collusion nonsense and off and the the impeachment over nothing yet. They won't touch. What joe biden did for his son they won't they won't touch when when liberals are not wearing masks and doing things like that it just goes on and on and it's really a shame for what what we have seen. You know doing this pandemic you've seen were. Baptists had a suit and even have worship services. We get an areas. Where catholics were doing. Drive up adoration staying in your car being told they can't do it. I mean this this is this is crazy and on the scientific side. Hey that's a whole nother story. Book that the things that were being done too much just for power and rather than for the good of america more. I wanna read the words. Only three sentences of mitch mcconnell. He's not much of an order. But every now and then he comes up with brilliant. This is mitch. Mcconnell on the floor of the senate yesterday quote more broadly. let's have no lectures about how president trump should immediately cheerfully accept preliminary election results from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election. And who insinuated in fact stated that this one in twenty twenty will be illegitimate to if they lost again. Please no lectures on this subject from that. Contingent doesn't that summed up pretty good. It really does and you know. I can't help but think that those people that have been out celebrating as biden media declared victory were also already organized and prepared to tear things apart if the outcome was different by the way about seventy four million of us voted for trump. not one city burned. Not one big box. Retailer was looted. Seventy four million americans that are functional simply said you know what i guess. We accept this election. We'll see what happens but we got back to work. But the other seventy seven million americans who voted for biden the reason washington dc and parts of cincinnati was boarded. Up is because in case biden lost his supporters would loot burn and pillage once again and the media didn't cover that either did they now. I was told that one biden one and a lot of the places in new york took down the boards that were over their windows. They didn't fare us somehow. Vacating big screen. Tv's from best buy. That wasn't a concern. Apparently not and this is. This is really say i will tell you. Well you probably would realize. There's there are many democrats. I can work with and have worked with and put bills together forward. Usually their doctors veterans to be honest with you but move. The leadership is not that way and neither is the party that call themselves democrat even growing. I mean if you really think about it. I gotta tell you if we had socialists calling themselves republicans we would say. We'll be in the minority already. You you you have to go caucus with yourself. You know but when you're all about power and you need those people to give you the vote speaker. Whatever the games may be as a problem. And i'll tell you even even worse it. There was about thirty people in eighteen. The ran for office on the democrat side. They said they weren't going to vote for nancy pelosi but about thirteen of them bid on the very first vote they got something and i would bet. Did some of them got the promise of impeachment. Well before we talk about the vaccine which is important. You're like a doctor. And including mayor congressman. I went to a friend's funeral on saturday. Stephen are adams. Were tragically killed on eastern avenue about on november first and it was done. Rhodium amount lookout. Did a great job. They had circles when you walked up yet. A wait in line to go into the funeral home. six feet. Apart headed wear masks which is fine. I wear a mask constantly. i'm sure you do. Also people are outside. couldn't get in because we obeyed. The rules of six feet apart went up to spring grove cemetery and they had shared setup six feet apart and everyone is real careful and then i want home. Got home about three or four o'clock in the afternoon then. I saw hundreds of thousands in dozens of american cities. Doing the macarena and ymca in line dancing. And i'm thinking. I'll wait a minute. Functional america is playing by the rules. Doing what we're told to do. Dysfunctional america plays by no rules at all. Doesn't that piss you off. It doesn't vagueness because they play by the rules when it's convenient for them. In other words they will criticize notre dame fans for running rushing on the field after they'd be clemson but they won't criticize themselves and the protesters that are out without mask and gathering largely like that. And and so there's completed obviously. I'm very sorry about team. Obviously and That that was that's very sad event and moms and dads at a wedding scheduled this summer. What their daughter or their or their son and they could not have a wedding that they wanted because of the rules that were being followed by functional america but on the other side of the fence in the summertime hundreds of american cities with millions of writers loot at large parts of our cities causing many vacate those areas and like it was like an uprising. It was justified and anthony. She was on his show a few months back talking about the tender tender app. I think tony bender my producers on tender. All the time i understand it has something to do with hooking up with women or men or whatever having out and he said well if you do once in a while is no big deal and tony vouches telling us in march and april. Don't have to wear a mask. You don't follow the protocols your doctor you have to follow this gotta do that. Gotta clean it every other day. You can't take it off a certain way. put it back on. He said wearing a mask like that makes no sense at all and now we're told that we have to wear masks now today at five thirty mike dewine. There's speculation about what he's gonna say at five thirty ninety two percent of us in our and the tri-state wear a mask all the time. You wear a mask. I wear a mask. I can't go outside without people. Everyone's wearing a mask. I went to jeff. Ruby steakhouse last night. Everyone had a mask on the chefs in the back. Were wearing a mask and ninety two percent now a wearing a mask but we did six thousand infections. Six thousand infections yesterday. You're like a doctor. I know wearing a mask is better than nothing. But countries that wear masks and countries that do not wear masks tend to have the same result. Well because i think that this virus is we have learned as a very tricky in many ways It's highly contagious. Compared to other viruses especially flu like viruses and so yeah wearing a mask is beneficial I don't think it's going to be the beat all end all to this. I think this something that's going to be around for quite some time. you know. We have cases of people that really pretty much quarantine because they felt they were vulnerable. And somehow anyway and so you know people are people. I think are being smart by large. And they're keeping their distance etc But what we're seeing right now is especially in hamlin county. We are seeing an uptick. We've got about four hundred in our hospitals today where we been averaging about one hundred but as the numbers go up one of the things you have to think about with that is we are as a healthcare system. We are testing people and testing a lot of people testing people. That aren't even. Ill did that with the art. Like four days. Nobody came up saying they felt bad. They just want to be tested. But when you are positive and you are developing symptoms. That keith today is treated sooner. You saw how the president rebounded and so. That's the key is to get the treatments that people which we didn't have early on as soon as bach one now we're on the cuts of vaccine and the problem that we pay for the healthcare of america is we have people that are being led to believe they should not take the vaccine Doctors in congress. We are watching this closely. They they've gone above and beyond and these trials normally for something like this about eight to ten thousand people in the trial. The pfizer one. We're talking about right now. It's forty four thousand people In the trial. But you have you advise you had heritz. Say well if the scientists say it's okay it's okay but not donald trump said okay. Well what if they say. It's okay. I mean this is a horrible thing to do just two days ago. You had governor cuomo say on tv that well. We should wait until joe biden president. What in the world that he he wants more blood on his. Yes yes last week. I'll say this. What do you say to the tony. Benders the world that are anti vaccine advocates. In which the he brings up to the point that a nineteen seventy five or nineteen seventy six when president ford was in the presidency and vaguely recall. This that there was a quickie vaccine for one of the h. One n ones are are. Are the bird flu and it caused terrible neurological symptoms. And so when. Dr cariocas has tells me at the christ hospital take the vaccine. That's why i'm taking it. But i'm not going to stand in line till they get a doctor and me that i really respect that. This vaccine is effective. And so it's gonna come out probably later this month or the first of december it's going to be available but then it's going to be prioritized to healthcare. Workers cops firefighters. I am the rest of us get. It might be february march april. What do you say to that crowd. That says i don't trust it. I don't believe government look with government has done to me. I don't trust the fbi. You saw mccabe testify yesterday. I don't trust the fbi at the top. I don't tested department of justice. At the top we got brent. Spence bridge is burning. We got a terrible christmas tree on fountain square. We got council members taking bags of cash. I don't trust government at all. So what do you say to the. tony benders. This world are anti vaccine advocates. Well i think would you judged on is important and i've said this tiny time again. I think what the american people would really like to hear or who they really like to hear from or the doctors that are in the trenches taking care of patients not just the epidemiologist overall gist but the ones that have really been. They're out there taking care of people on his doctors. In congress we've been heavily engaged with aj and with with dod who's part of this and with and with the fda and we know the process is being done right. I'm gonna think a lot of the american people that are the volunteers that these trials will. He mean keep that in mind. He's numbers that just made up. These are teams. Americans and said i will get involved with this trial and i can tell you the doctors in congress at least on the republican side. Every one of us is a if the fda approves it and going through the process that we know is taking place. We will take the vaccine. So somebody doesn't wanna take it. Well you you may be putting yourself in jeopardy and maybe you won't be one that develops symptoms if you get it but you could still then the spreader and so the forces that we get this out there to to people When it's approved when it safe and effective visor has little bit ways to go before they can apply for emergency use and by the way that is controlled by what's called the independent data and safety monitoring board. They're the only ones who know what people got. The researchers don't know what they're using placebo or the real thing so their data based on on not knowing what someone gets and that board will be the one that would approve. Emergency user not read winston. Lastly is so called. President-elect joe biden is he mentally present is he mentally alert. Well you know aging has its effect. And i've seen it was in my own family My my uncle buried friday And he had alzheimer's and you can see some of the trends that they take place and You know moments where he's like he's right on it and other times like he's not and so time will tell and i think it's a concern for the american people from short especially if senator kamala harris who's to the left bernie sanders becomes the president now. We got real issues. But congressman. We've gotta run. Good luck to you and thank you for being a veteran. Thank you for your service in this country. And god bless america. Thank you thank you. God bless and let's continue with more congressman. Bread went strip throw me reds and bengals anti vaccine is out there. I guess and the next thirty to sixty days. It's going to be put on the arms of lots of people and then first quarter of next year. It's going to go to a lot more people in pfizer. Which is a german company. I wonder why they didn't release this the monday before the election instead of the money after the election. Do you think politics had something to do with that. That markle did not want trump in office and one at a putz so-called joe biden president-elect that it's something that right now coming up in about six or seven minutes it's sharon coolidge of the inquire. Talk about latest developments in scandals burgeoning city hall and more also jack crumley and the bottom here matt ryan says the latest on the brent spence bridge. And what's going to happen there. Governor bashir said it'll be several days might be a few weeks hopefully by the end of the year this can be done but between the bags of cash and rings of fire on the burning bridge and more. I'm not sure news handles it. Better than seven hundred. Wwl w and jack crumley will have more with matt reese. as time allows flying becomes available. But you never does five one. Three seven four nine seven thousand. What is the latest. And we'll jeff pastor show up tomorrow and city council. let's continue to thirty two only your reds and bengals playing heads bergman with or without big ben on newsradio seven hundred wwl cincinnati billy cunningham. The great american. All hell's breaking loose. This is twenty. Twenty after the brent spence bridge burning should be shut down several days. If not several weeks we have bags of cash being handed back and forth council tables. Two of the nine have been either indicted convicted or awaiting sentencing. And they're rumors in the media about a third council member in difficulties of course once again lies circle the globe before truth can take its first step and when on the mayor at one of five today i kinda ran over the list of things happening and not too. Many things are good in the city of cincinnati especially around the country we starting to collect chicago politicians but until then sharon coolidge. The inquirer has been following this assiduously and sherry coolidge. Welcome again to the bill cunningham. Show and sherri. How are you well yesterday like a long time ago. Yes here we always twenty twenty and now georgia's going to count. All the ballots will be counted hand by hand because of allegations of a fraud or whatever. I anticipate the results going to be about the same but who knows about that. He get up this morning with a november. The eleventh veterans day early morning hours a truck filled with potassium chloride cod fire. When hit by another truck and then there was the third accident. All hell's breaking loose so tomorrow counsel's gonna meet when ahead on the mayor. After one o'clock i asked him the questions about the status of our city that both of us loved so much with bags of cash. Flying around council members being indicted and sentence. The bridges are on fire. The western viaduct still stinks. You have massive writing. You have is downtown last night. You can throw a bowling ball not hit a pen. Anywhere downtown is better than babe ruth. The governor's gonna speak at five thirty. God knows what he's going to do. Have i sum this up. Okay i mean you're not hearing me disagree with you. So what's gonna happen tomorrow and city council you know all either on city council tomorrow and if only but i can tell not off this telephone in. I don't know like thirty hours. They're they're either on. who sees. Nobody knows if pastor is going to resign or he's going to hold on As far as i can tell that one has talked to him every so often. He's not taking my call. I've three numbers for him is in spoken to me and months. He put out some missives on social media about six months ago then. I'm not really a republican. I i just caucus with them and and so now. The republican party doesn't know what to do with the seat. Do they Do they let it go. Let me smitherman was designated. I dunno. Chris is going to do what the seat the republican party would like it to become their seat. But jeff passer gave it to a charter ride and independent the vice mayor he can or cannot do what he wants to do and there's assuming he does not step down. There's a procedure to get him out. Which is a petition with the chief. Justice of ohio. Can you explain how to get them out. You know what. The sad thing is that i actually know these procedures. 'cause i had another earlier this year on council women to my dinar. Got in trouble. So here we go back and two paths here. First of all people can do nothing. But of course we have heard the calls for the resignation So back in happened. Christopher smitherman is his designating. i don't really see him. Changing that at the city council person right now who could come in and then resigned. I don't think he's that happy with the republican party. Though you've seen what he's been saying on social media I don't think there's a lot of love lost their. At this moment i expect. Christopher smitherman probably will stay And at this point a looking for is like a council person thinking bags of cash. And we're not talking about a little bit of money. I mean and this is another thing sharon coolidge. He was six months into the gig. Six or seven months into the gig when he first started soliciting developers for lots of money and the f. b. i. Kept him there for two years from november of eighteen. Until now. Why did they wait so long. I do have an understanding about this time line because of course that is very curious you know this involves undercover fbi agents man. They were hoping that press conference yesterday. Because i feel like they have a good story. Tell we're gonna try and do that later. But these kinds of cover. Fbi agents cross over to house bill. Six people's neil clark who was indicted in that case had seen them and just the cases themselves still crossover but the come down here in unsealed an indictment and be like undercover fbi agents posing as developers would have tipped off the house six people and so they didn't wanna do that. They were afraid so that case you know there was a lot of ducks that had to be in a row there before anything can happen. They do that case. That's why twenty i. Of course there's aftermath and parent is what's going on and everything that goes with that big case there a justice department rule that says he really unless it's life or death should not be indicting corruption cases ninety days before an election because so it isn't misused and even you know in these within the election coming up you don't wanna see all these charges be used in any sort of bad way clearly just you know or like a safety sake rule and it just really backing up and so they waited. They have their stuff. We ask a. Us attorney villars at the press conference yesterday. What about these boats. Now and his answer was very interesting because i do feel like council could move to you know fixing votes or do something. Different us attorney's sevilla's said it doesn't he's like yes. he's like. The deals to really could be in the best interest of the public right. We saw unanimous the enemy vote on four thirty five m every council member voting for it and takes it. Anybody who's ever seen for thirty five off from where. I walked by another way to city hall Would say yeah. Let's give back to the try again on this one. But i look at this for two years. I mayor cranley this question about an hour ago and that he surely cast over two years dozens if not hundreds of votes in subcommittees in own council to move forward or not move forward with developments in a bunch of other things. I can't believe this is the only time. He's accepted bags of cash for his votes other times and so i asked him. Do you need to go back and revisit. All of those votes to determine if they will generally cash these at absolutely. We're going to do that. Of course now. You got betsy. Sundermann is a different viewpoint. I think than to my art head and now you also you also have passed a different viewpoint. Maybe whoever is gonna be picked. I don't know who's going to be picked. But but it undermines the legitimacy of councils behavior one a good man like indu kway said i sent something was wrong. He wasn't getting deals when it shouldn't be getting deals and he went to the fbi. I guess he was wired up or something because they have verbatim in the indictment words said by jeff pastor and so a good developer. Like just like in. Tom gabel case a good lawyer who said to my denard. This isn't right and bags of cash. But what do you do with two years votes in which people were turned down to other people granted and not suspicion. Now the proof that jeff pastor was bought and paid for by by rich developers who were favored. You have to go back in time and say what the hell's going on and don't you have to re re voter but you can't revote on a project that's halfway completed. So what do you do. I do think. I bet it's very interesting and holding back from cincinnati podcast otherwise i would have been listening earlier. I think that perhaps starting with the idea like what motor faisal and off the top of my head except something or the really early. Wasn't i go. There was no corruption involving are the five four votes. i don't think jeff he's quoted in the indictment at one point of being like kind of sentence. And i might not really know. I don't know what's going to happen. And you've heard the rumors and i've heard that there's another council member about to take the fall. No one can use the name of that person. Because god knows if it's accurate we don't know if it's true or not but i said to cranleigh on the air which there's a there's a waiting for the next shoe to drop attitude and i said to john. How do you deal with council members or telephone calls when you're being taken recorded audio and videos playing. How do you have the trust that when you walk into. Somebody's office when you walk into. Borough loves office and you sit there. How do you have to trust what we say. Here is going to stay inside these walls. How does john cranley have the trust if he calls in one or the other council members and they're talking on each of them thinking they're being recorded. Here's the thing if you're not saying anything bad and someone's recording you. Okay i mean. I always say about executive sessions like just because you can hold. Something in secret doesn't mean that you feel right so it's not a crisis like you can trust the people that you're with and i definitely trust people and there's some times where i'm just caging. I don't say things just in case you're always you know if you're not doing anything wrong and something would elite a house idea but as long as it's not illegal it's not a crisis. Is there a crisis down. You're down there every day. Eight one plum street. What is it like to walk around the highways and the byways in the hallways of city hall with this going on again all week. They're off today. I think this one council meeting city hall is closed for veterans day. Chow if you know what happened after tonight. And our is any indication. There's a lot of You know christopher's measurement is going to be at the center of a lot of people are to really be wondering what he's going to do. I think council people allow council people dog really every single one of them matters. And so that's really gonna set like whatever's going to be happening here is going to be going to be a lot of. I think you know talks closed doors Trying to figure out what people gossip about what everyone's doing well do you have a sense. Sharon college the inquirer that other council member or members are also going to be indicted. We have to Take us attorney at his word when he says and this deal seems like there's a deal itself. We saw what was going to happen at a club down. Maybe there's some other things. He didn't shut the door on it. And and we're not talking about inexperienced. Long time you know we're prosecutor's office various roles podcast really talk to him about his whole fascinating trial of saddam hussein. He knows what he's saying. He didn't accidentally say we're still looking at something. Say whether it's that's not how you roll. And so i think we have to take him and his. Just keep watching things now lastly. What's the status of pat hanley's criminal investigations of pg sitting failed seal denard. Of course that's over with wendo. Young greg landsman the gang of five. What's the status of that. He now specifically act yesterday. We saw we don't know we could see the last thing. We don't believe in that letter that becomes public. Like what can they charge you. Zero election of duty by the investigation is ongoing. People who are not being careless with their words that sentence was in there for the lawsuit specifically asked this press conference does the investigating only had anything to do with. What's going on right here. And the answer was no That remains open ended. And i it's hard for me to imagine that everything in that sense is still hanging out there. There's something still going. I can promise you. And i wish the after was different. I do not know what that we have. An incredible situation or five members of council where the subject of a special criminal grand jury proceeding about pat hanley. And one of the five to my denard is waiting for sentencing. It was delayed from from the tenth yesterday to the twenty fourth. I guess because of this and then we have jeff. Pastor makes council member number six the only one not under criminal investigation indicted or waiting for sentence is smitherman sundermann and a man. Is that right now. Luckily only three of the nine that we know are not in a criminal. Investigation thing about is that possible in the city of cincinnati. That six of the nine or either indicted awaiting sentencing or an active criminal investigation. That is almost impossible to comprehend. Have really fresh off this interview with david davila's and it's not something that he hasn't said before. Corruption is our number one priority. He was corruption in city hall. One on well you know how bad this is. You know but everybody else is good. He's not saying that. I mean the door is so wide open and it's really exciting unbelievable and if you think taus. She ended him and duke. Wake got involved in this case. Villa said this himself yesterday he would. They gotta tip back There was some things going on with jeff. Passer it's not related to this. They brought in them and do quake to do the right thing. He agree because he said he's tired of being shaken down. What a banger. A well-known shannon and do wake notre dame the bengals tired of being shaken down like what this investigation so it really tells it opens a lot of what's going on questions sharon coolidge. Good luck. we'll see what happens. But just when you thought twenty twenty could not get any worse bags of cash and rings of fire on the brent spence bridge. What could be next. I bear that outright.

Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red

S2 E42: HTHL After Dark

"The actual jason yes searched we'll give you the walls became spring. I knew and then claw your face off rast talking with questions from <music>. Thank you <music>. Hello rapid fans. My name is matt pollard at you're listening to holding the highline with rabbi read. It is the late evening on on thursday august twenty second twenty nineteen rava marc goodman as opposed to looking at you via skype window. I've seen you in the flesh background or or sitting across the table from each other. It's so weird we sat across the bridge all night and drank copious amounts of local colorado beer or really just carlsberg karlsberg matt rank more than me and that's why this pod is going to be way more fun than normal as we're pretty drunk but realistically we're just just having a good time and of course as less to talk about this week despite the fact that there are more games since colorado to last week and and that's the reason we're gonna have less tacos because neither of them was all that into saying we're just gonna kinda move on and get ready for the rocky mountain and cup which matt lined up some wonderful interviews for <hes> with a a local salt lake celebrity <hes> uh former. I'm less player. <hes> don't well mark all right all right. We're gonna get to a little bit later in the show ended donna. It'll be on the pop. No my gosh if we got lynn david beckham ause who i won't be able to throw myself margaret like you if david beckham from a galaxy stamps query on re. I've been on the pot. I i wouldn't even know what to ask siri on other than hate sierra. Here's here's my friend marks number. Can you just call him and talk about the invincible season because he's a huge arsenal and you will you will spontaneously combust marc goodman good man. He threw it makes me cry. We've yes absolutely in the same way that you know if if saint see as m._l._s. team were to sign tim rain off of fulham essy's leicester city runs winning the premier league i would just i was watching this. I would show for rabat's taking on st louis. If see <music> at their brand new stadium built a couple of years you know at the union station anabela handsome rate you wanna talk matt i would i would cease to exist. I would bond with the essence of the universe upon that level happiness in. I would know what to do with myself. Bond with the universe. I love the phrase. I have no idea what it means. I let's go on all right. Okay not no venture anything mark. Do we wanna we could what was that <hes> banter do we want to do we want to acknowledge wilmer cabrera getting getting fired by houston dynamo hired by montreal in the same press release in which they fired <hes> remi garde or one out for poor around the yard didn't even deserve his own own press. Release is like sub paragraph to a you know. We fired you and we hire somebody. Better is poor guy. I mean i don't know i i like rummy. Garden inside of you did a fine job with montreal. I lost all interest in that team when they got rid of michael who as we all know i believe to be you base raise player in history the platonic ideal warning individuals uganda's greatest assets beyond you know the source of the nile river like yeah basically but i do think the wilmer cabrera really talented coach in it makes some sense for m._l._s. team the arum but men what not not classy maneuver to fire your coach on the spot in order to grab somebody else up. It's weird weird move yeah. I think we had this conversation before. We hit the record button and i'm usually i try to be rational person of responding to the oh you know coaches of average fire them minute minute response. Is we get an montreal. Kinda did the reverse thinking of thinking the teams playing or they need a new voice in place. There's there's this head coach who's had success with fourteen who liked to mid block in counterattack who had some talent everything you know like. I almost thought that oh this is almost a reactionary standpoint of will recur. Brera is available. Cabrera is upgrade over remmy guard and we need to change something in the t in some way in order to try to make a run of the play offs and i transitioned that ended the point that i think if nothing else the last week or so i'd include mike pecci in this. I'll get into this with nevada. Enemy with guests that we have of in terms of the reaction of things is now. Most of the point is at a point where there's so much expectations expectations that issue are failing on a team is expected in hoping to make the playoffs now they see the opportunity to make an operator entertain something they will do so and maybe not the healthy standpoint of you know. <hes> you know primarily. Were you know teams that are in relegation canal can go through three managers single season but to the point where maybe you know say the n._h._l. Or the n._b._a. Or at a point where we can get rid of somebody just change the voice and get a new head coach nat and get us into the playoffs that has value. I think that increases in terms of where the expectations and the level quality he is from an emily standpoint they just you can't have jaideep sitting at new england revolution doing nothing for five years you have to show measurable progress and if you can't show measurable progress and there's an opportunity for us to make a move such get measurable results it is worth taking that risk and <unk> lake that change in t._v._d. Houston dynamos made made that change montreal impact has made that change those are three data points that i've fascinating to see where that goes in terms of the moves and the timing and the reasoning behind it in the context of emily's coaching hires where you know they're still d._c. United fans did not like the bengals and higher to begin with and are still frustrated. Fuss frustrated with benny ball in two thousand nineteen. Yeah one of the interesting questions is is ended might shake out as a masterful move from montreal in the sense that if you snape will wilmer cabrera before the coaching carousel starts rotating later on in the season or at the end of the season. Have you made the right move. You got you guy early enough. <hes> as a waiting till you know there's there's what's leftover. I mean right now. <hes> we're looking at tab tab. Ramos mike pecci <hes> <hes> robert frasure <hes> maybe jason kreis district <unk> on the market and then of course all the other potential international coaches in <hes> <hes> league mickey's coaches who might possibly be good fits for <hes> gidley soccer but like none ah the super exciting names anymore so maybe we'll more career is the best possible got you. You've got <hes> and they got him any. He won on a trophy with a bottom team in terms of overall salary value so for montreal impact who's losing nacional de at the end of the year at the end of the a year. You know maybe that has a little bit more values strange that every time you say something a person says something like a bottom team or a bottom of players get immediately. We like anxious like just like i had p._t._s._d. From hud scenario like the word bottom can't stomach it anymore man. I can't handle it okay. A holding a highland policy is that we will not using that will be using some other colloquialism our way to inform you know gassing no a middling needling club as opposed to you know we're not gonna. We're not going to invoke terminologies average of quality. Yes we're not going to invoke something. You know that would be associated with that. Garvey team for example that was the worst primarily team primarily history yeah bottom group of players is is slight in there with like whatever was when <hes> pablo mastroeni has a mental breakdown and said something along the lines of you know the team has <hes> cosmic carmel reallocation <hes> whatever that was he said why you were that yet quote about carmen and the cosmos and the universe and whatever you he does this the that there was some why remember insane the universe owes you not in a younger university not that i was the one yet at southbound one okay. We've got some classics in the in in colorado language history absolutely all right listeners this past saturday at the stadium. The colorado rapids were victorious <unk>. Despite being up to nil at halftime diego rubio scored in the seventh minute off me long while that was sent to sam nicholson sam nicholson hesitant completely unity open space rubio runs onto and east goalkeeper joe <hes> wilson joe willis on the far side who opened the scoring than diego rubio unassisted seven minutes prior hats. I'm picking up a past <hes> out of baton baton playing out of back and then runs in on goal rounds joe willis yen and then ultimately scores and then the rapid you kind of already in the low block position mark but they were definitely defending the scoreline rather than trying to manage things and then you have <hes> martinez merriman of succeed me scoring the seventy four ave across not <unk> pressure on the ball and then tommy mcnamara sending up <hes> minolta's in the seventy nine minutes to make it to to <hes> pretty much aw colorado first half pretty much all houston in the second half but i would say very much you know definitely possession favoring the houston dynamo oh but very much a game in which the rap is had to really quality chances maybe three in the second half and in the first half and they buried both him and then it was all oh houston with colorado defending didn't really have a whole lot from the tax standpoint but they weren't able to secure things at the back and ultimately gets out to a to draw the eighteen or debut arnott's and interim head coach and his team can say showed a lot of fight in second half. This is something to build on in the same way that this is the result that you talk about from rapid rapid standpoint that is indicative of some of the issues of the teens <unk> ultimately why this is not a playoff position in this was the game that you think if you wanted to make the playoffs against a you know a wounded houston animals you had to have a slam duck slam dunk result europe jewel halftime. This is definitely. I put a poll asking how fans thought about seventy percents that they were disappointed. This fellow draw the felt like a loss that you know if there's any hopes his team gene was going to make the playoffs are dead no strong opinions on this game. You know we're into the these games are all meaningless phase of the season. I already moved to the point where i would really light to start seeing younger players. Get a chance and players who are on the bubble for being retained for next year getting chess <hes> but this is the i feel like i don't have the numbers but i feel like going into houston. Holding on for dear life is thing this seem does my is a place where the rapids get leads and then fall apart <hes> later on <hes> but i it just definitely i think the most important thing take out of this is the team neither has the defensive midfield that you can bring rang in late in as a replacement and locked down a game nor do the centrebacks <hes> really have instill confidence <hes> <hes> the front back this team doesn't defend light they used to in in the in the problemas rate as which were clearly like they they lack a lot but that being said like you can't believe but but this game is really going to go down in history as any memorable for rapid sands just like the one nothing lost to minnesota earlier in the week didn't go down won't be going down as anything <hes> particularly going into the forgettable phase of the twenty ninth season or so far in forgettable as that i prepped my i did my usual preparation ration- for the show and i completely forgot the last one mellon minnesota on the bearer of that news nor- normally we not w full recap together and i did the houston game completely forgetting the minnesota game happened. I can't even remember no tarot because he missed the p._k. Okay against clint irwin and he scored like more minutes later on the counter-attack and they beat the on the beat the offside trap but i mean that game was pretty forgettable mark because other than and clint irwin making a bunch of good saves to flat of the rapids from the scoreline standpoint like you can't take anything from it because nobody really showed up in there wasn't like kyko marceca arctic a bunch of abuse of the front and got no service in no help and clint irwin took a bunch of use a mac was probably looking at the center back and said you so many help me out here and can't make every single save for you possibly not surprised that you know darling terrassa very player and scored a goal but you know i guess on that note. I guess looking roll the whole week. Do we haven't avenue good things other than data rubio getting up race in almost three minutes apply. No i mean like we're also. They're the only the other thing about this team is that we've gone yet another week. In kara rapids land with another <hes> week of an interim head coach as oppose to a head coach. We've definitely moved well into the period where everybody who falls his team is wondering are the hiring a new coach. Are we just gonna kinda like twenty twenty interim head coach honor case going on here. This is like very it's become strange change. I mean i'll say semi anecdotally that it was brought to me by another reporter that he had the inside inside scoop about who the wrath we're going to name as their head cook many weeks ago but he was told the whole off because they haven't made it official but it really i'm wondering whether that was all smoke and mirrors in the first place or whether the team had a plan the higher new coach nazem just backed off from it and this is like wild speculation scurrilous rumors for me on some level but i am really deeply confused about about what colorado's doing no. I think it's a fair question in terms of what they're doing from head coaching standpoint. I know we talked about this last week. In the two weeks ago when houston listen had fire okay so repair off the market <hes>. I don't know the montreal as interesting of a._t. Or market ed or you know a club to enter in for potentially wrong brazier or top row most because they tend to go with somebody with some of french. Influence can be appealing kneeling to an italian or french international. Who's come the league but you know this. Is you know montreal in one week decided to get rid of your manager who who almost got them to the playoffs last year for another manager ru talking about like it's probably at least word. The rap is brass getting together and saying hey. What do we think about the sky like is this crazy. We 'cause asian. I mean i think there's maritz four wilmer cabrera marriage against him but you know like montreal that issue in we need literal same press conference and you know what it's been at least four months since since anthony hudson was like oh this point ami. We're still waiting on anything. It hasn't been anything other than you know. Obviously josh wolff is off the market joining on the awesome expansion team but i mean it's the same two names is everybody seems to talk about that. Everybody's universally associating with you know every other available opportunity. I'm sure at some point. Somebody's going to save well. Oh ta romo almost robin fraser would be a good figures like there's no anybody or saint louis you know or i mean tony. Poo poo is doing a decent job. I think with the sent was the u._s._s._l. Team i think they're far off hiring anybody on on the tactical front on that on that set your point you know there are other teams who are doing things in a timescale weeks and the rap is are not doing them at a time scale of months. Whammy veterans are still going to be looking for a coach soon <hes> cleaning up soil when the stadium that they're planning to build yeah. Can you declare a soccer team of superfund site before they'd even kicked. The ball is a really good. That is an interesting e._p._a. Question that i feel like fashionable national the answered sale that i'm kind of disappointed. I don't and i'm totally gonna look up after we finish finish this podcast z. The <unk> miami f c to answer miami asbestos <unk> issue be has walkers may have they. It'd be like they'd be like miami. Osha see her exam that there we go yes so but i wanna talk about uh rubio mark because he scored a bunch of goals. I wanna say it's nine eleven games now if i'm not mistaken and he has been fantastic on set-pieces reported on what he's done differently in trading in terms of being out for blood and he hates losing he's not finishing chances in training conor casey in rubio himself have affirmed that has led to progressions and improvement in terms of what he's doing on the field and i think just regardless of with teams he's doing. He's genuinely enjoy football right now. And previously we were talking about this at the happy hour at the bulldog of maybe a couple of hours gore was saying you know a month. Two months. Go rubio would have been so pessimistic insurance not finishing the he wouldn't have tried to pass and go on goal for that second goal his brace on saturday and and now you've been level confidence for announcing this trump thing i can do this is something that i will do and i think some of the changes that conor casey son in terms of of having an exclusively the underneath prac- mark any of his scraps and in particular what he's done in terms of being away from the rest of the main groove onset eases now relevant on the houston game certainly velvet on the set these headers that he soared has been really impactful and all that collectively is leading to a much more a healthy confident didn't second striker that i think is deserving of the <hes> contract extension that he got from the front office during preseason in talking to somebody at the game on at the celtics and about you know. I don't understand why people rubio this point. He's proven he deserves the eighteen. He's proven that the scale of the scoring is or in kansas city guinea span. That's being starters but i wanna give one extra story just in case mark. If you'll indulge me is not not related to what extent on the field so that training on wednesday or waiting to talk to sev- anderson for that <hes> homegrown series that were planning on doing for the pot the next couple of weeks folks and and so on there's family lives there. <hes> one of the kids was really interested in the team. <hes> they were <hes> spanish in nature. You know i couldn't really understand specifically the accident that they they were speaking but there was a little bit of spanish as well and really interested in talking to rubio and the mom the kid went over to the team store by seventy six and was was trying to get a t shirt that maybe they could get a couple of players to sign. Apparently the store is not open randomly in the middle of the week mark thinking like you know we go to some other sports star. That has some the rapids gear. What could we do and you know. I said just talk with the teen liaisons maybe hit a review afterwards and so rubio walks and talks of the kit all the way from bill twenty out of locker room and then walking back with rapids media staff to get up to hit up sebastian andersen rubio says wait right here to kate goes in the locking brings out in authentic jersey that he would have worn signs it gives it to the cat and then they play in the they'll kick about in the players locker room afterwards. I mean listeners the after hearing that you're not convinced in terms of rubio off-field are on the field. Excuse me i would say go watch the video. The rapids put out about him going with his kids is to the zoo and then listen that story that i just told you and tell me you're not missing. Diego rubio not only the professional football mark but diego rubio the person. I'm definitely convinced that he is part of the soon to be in their prime or the rapid should be building twenty twenty regardless of the head coaching position china also included thought vice you know i think it was a great digression a great story. I'm thrilled to have heard it. <hes> i now have a potential new favorite player and <hes> there's a reason this team signed diego rubio four a four year contract. He's locked up through twenty twenty two <hes> which is that he clearly shows the talent and the ability and they believe in him and he's a guy that bill will set mark on any of the big things that we wanna point out on you know just last week whether it was the loss of minnesota the drought who snyder then i mean we've both been on the record. This point of the season is over but i mean you know you figured if you were going to mount any sort of miracle comeback in needed to start withdrawing minnesota and the vatican houston and team did neither of those is all just taking scalps from here on out. It's all just playing spoiler in and i'll defer to something i've probably said at a years so on a ago on the podcast asked which was a problem our interview d c united player. I forget which one and you're so good and he might have told me this story independent of you telling me so. I heard yeah i her on. I read it in something you wrote you. Ask the resort like how howdy get up for game on doesn't mean anything. This was twenty thirteen season yeah. Everyone's on the year he was your there are furious with him and he says it doesn't mean anything to you. They all mean something to me. Something tended to that fact is basically all these players. They care deeply about every single game. They can't get up for a game if they don't get up for game day they are. They may get a big deal. What and i think that's very very true of all professional athletes. You can't go out and perform at the highest level if you don't really care you don't believe in what you're doing with. These dozen was lots on who you know flows love between you know. We'll only get up when he's gotta play harlow so on the weekend as he is this weekend. Watch game yet doesn't care about columbus crew definitely doesn't here the san jose earthquakes but l. a._f._c. or anything on national television mid week open cup me nothing to law-abiding what is open cup okay in any case ace on show easily. Get onto this weekend mark the alright it is rivalry week in m._l._s. <hes> this coming saturday at eight pm mt santer any time colorado rapids will be taking on real salt lake from the rio a stadium mark that i do not need to remind you <hes> the rapids have never actually walked walked away with three points in and prior to this past year have not scored multiple goals in real salt lake currently says in fourth in the western conference they have forty points offer twenty six games played twelve wins ten losses and four draws a plus four goal differential and a very impressive nine three and one record at the rotea colorado rapids for me in eleventh place in the western conference still a sizable number of points ahead of f._c. Cincinnati they we have twenty seven points twenty six teams played a record of seven three and six with a negative on goal differential end a increasingly the appointment away record of one seven in four. We'll get to eilly. Yes wow that's bad on that. One win i might add listeners is the was the first one of the season at dignity elsewhere spark against as lon- less ella galaxy. That was one nil off andrea senior sticky getting nothing bowl. I won't say eighty minute something like that completely against the wrong place. <hes> the rapids had gotten a couple bowl. Gutsy draws in twenty nineteen in league play and other than that. It's been a lot of bad games of mark. Obviously the rapids are already ready behind on aggregate in the rock mound pop up before we get to know the enemy what you see in this game. You see ourselves on saturday <hes> while i don't i'm i'm still trying to figure out what our cell are this year different from last year. <hes> you know i think the most important thing the the only interesting thing i can add is conversation is <hes> i was looking at goalkeeper expected goals numbers just the other day <hes> and noticing something nothing that i was shocked at which is nick mondo is near the bottom of the league in goalkeeper expected goals and lower and lower year well below a second to last ask. The entire league in terms of goalkeeper expected goal hosea. Have i guess <hes> i asked to look it up. It's it's pretty bad but <hes> so he's having having a really down year. The wheels came off and he got that is <hes> celebrity marched to <hes> retirement which is more looking like potanin the death march <hes> some of those numbers are not entirely independent of the defense which also tells you that there's been a bit of a regression listen but also the tactically seem isn't lining at the same way. Another question that you could ask is whether this team is mentally all together without mike pecci there anymore. Navy mike pecci was a distraction. Maybe he's not <hes> and then you've got the question of of whether the midfield his yield <hes> in of this team is really <hes> altogether there. I never feel like the mir cry lock and albert ra- snack. Jack were all that well connected last year there. There's still good players and all of our s. L. play quite well but i still never quite noticed a sense of chemistry between those two players. Those are my anecdotal observations that ourselves now. We got for us also with a in fact. Check on you so i'm looking on american soccer analysis right now the axe goals. I realized that this was updated on the eighteenth which would have been on this past monday. I believe so it does include. It doesn't include the mid week in los action ourselves now part of but it would include the tuna loss lost to l. a. t. in which nick remondo is tom has a has a negative expos. I guess of one point nine seven seven so not quite compared to average on replacement goalkeeper in m._l._s. on raimondo has given up two more goals than that average goal keeper borough and there's a handful of panther are seven gold abbas below him but some of them are not full-time keepers cody cropper and evan bush yes s. and some of his whole time <hes> tyson sure cincinnati. He's not he's not spencer. Offensive heights insurance lemos law okay and i should say that some of this is also dependent on the defense in front of us so in terms of x goes against for example you have evan bush and andre blake elect you know who are at the bottom and you know evan bush played for montreal impact. We're very defensive team. Mark obviously give all bunch of shots. So some of this data you know is dependent upon sample size and everything but in any case nick raimondo for you know the equivalence minutes played this year below average in terms of the average channels goalkeeper. I know some of our listeners have been very outspoken about their disappointments. In howard in two thousand nineteen for roughly twelve minutes plates in howard has bent on better goalkeeper turns of expected goals minus goals against then nagra mono. Has i'm really curious about the response that we've seen from our cellmark because obviously you know they play l._s. He's a very good team. If you don't have lots of neighboring music your problem lose to them but prior to that the three wins in three gains in league play in august and so i'm curious to know scott similar houston with <unk> coaching change wears this team from a psychological standpoint pinpoint after mike pecci was fired where they from just from an identity standpoint on the head coach coming in and freddie warez so well. I mean you know i don't know how much this team believed in my heke what they thought about whether or not pecci should've fire what i do know is with with all of the bad juju the associated with pecci the circumstances of him being fired how the club dealt with that certain certain the fall back from you know at least from a couple of our cell fans. I saw hashtags apec. He signed his last couple of games. They had world pecci was still under suspension. You know prior to him. Getting fired the easiest way for all this to be completely water under the bridge is for this club to make plops do something in the playoffs so kind of similar the houston dynamo condoms wondering hot tea come out from it from mentality standpoint. Where's their psyche and even beyond their game against the rapids. How do they handle themselves. The arrest the way in season because obviously the team that talent wise. I've leave should be a playoff team. The expectation goal should be to make the playoffs that slope welcome the air but they have their federal ends in terms of the number of home games that have left the number of games against western conference opponents. They have left infrared. Team is expecting the play ossetia expect to go up there and dump on the colorado rapids. Where do they stand from identity context in the context of the rapids or you know one of their finals this coming saturday. The only hardware <unk> win is the rocky mountain cup team. Play spoiler is ourselves down them. You know get three points in alton also in the playoffs how does play matt and he's folkard anyone recently. You might ask the insight as to what oursel- could look like absolutely so listeners. Now we have coming up very special and certainly from a name recognition standpoint the best episode of no enemy we have had ever on this podcast. Ah so without further ado listeners here is brian sunset. The color commentator for fox soccer and for real salt lake of is he in in plus and also the host of counter attack on sirius x._m. Without furthered notice both here is no enemy. We'll be right back. I welcome back listeners to holding the high line with rabbi and read. My name is paula. We've got a very special rocky mountain cup addition of know thy enemy coming for for you now. I'm free to bring on brian dunne seth he color commentator for fox soccer and on e._s._p._n. Plus some of you have heard of him and he is the host of counter attack on sirius x._m. Doney hello sir happy rivalry week yeah. I'm excited. I'm excited how are you doing. I'm doing very good. Thank you know nice little thursday thursday here. It's finally cooled down has been super hot in salt lake this summer. It's been terrible. I mean that i i know you guys can can can can feel the pain when it gets. You know you feel like you're you're gonna freeze to death and then <hes> you're just praying for the sun and then all of a sudden you get it and you're like okay go away. It's way too hot so the the altitude out in salt lake the high desert <hes> it's been mid-nineties the upper nineties <hes> for about a month now and <hes> last yesterday at about five o'clock it was ninety seven degrees so i think we've got another week or two and then it drops into the eighties and then a us all here we come he absolutely i'm definitely looking forward to fall and then i was out at training earlier this week and it was just ninety five and i don't know if you've ever been out there bryan but right on field twenty there's a couple of small little trees and then basically no shade if we're actually on the field so that in like i watched some of the players straight and i don't don't know if it's me living vicariously through them as someone who obviously had no chance of playing professional soccer or anything like i just i feel pain. I start sweating. I get hot and then like my a hamstring start cramping so that might be something to talk about with with a medical professional but in any case brian let's talk about all things real salt lake for this you know on a great run of form three wins in august and all competition and then unfortunately like most teams that do not have any brahima vic they ran into the buzz saw that was does l. a._f._c. Over the weekend your thoughts on the loss in the general inform ourselves going into this rocky mountain cup yeah. I'm glad you kinda set it up that way because says i agree with you one hundred percent l. a._f._c. for me and i've been saying this on our show tony meola on counterattack on sirius x._m. That's a for the past asked i'd say three months. I've been saying that this l. a._f._c. Team is one for the record books <hes> they're going to go down as the the best team in the history the regular season history of major league soccer. I know they haven't won anything yet and i know the conversation is always going to revolve around an analyst cup trophy <hes> but but with the way the bob bradley akaki bob bradley that i'm here for every single second rung in that momber jacket on the sideline <hes> i i. I just think it's incredible to see what they've done so that being said i mean they they were so good in possession even going a man down there always a constant threat. They always have an identity sanity in a style in which they play unfortunately for real salt lake. I thought the speed of play was by far the highest it's been for our s._e._o. All season season-long and that's due to the opponent and unfortunately in games like that and we we've we've seen it this year. <hes> the margins for success and failure really really small when you're playing against l. a._f._c. Team and i think some of the things that they've been getting away with since the gold cup break and they've been in a great run of form outside outside the elliott see game. That was the first time they've got punished <hes> and it was unfortunate on the backside of three games in seven eight nights for them so what they've been doing well <hes>. I think you know with the gold cup break. They were afforded the opportunity to kind of dial back into maybe some of the principles of flay and the principles of defending <hes> you know losing against elliott seat in the open cup so you're not having multiple competitions. You have to worry about <hes>. This is the team that i think is continuing to grow and by growing more about the mentality of the team <hes> it on any given night you're averaging between four born five homegrown players in the starting eleven and at times in the past year i think they've been incredibly naive when they've conceded a goal and found themselves chasing and found themselves wide wide open and found themselves getting punished whereas i think <hes> in the last two months they've you know wh- whether it's donny toya or brookline or <hes> ah aaron herrera or justin gladder both settle a corey baird <hes> and i know i'm probably missing one or two others. The these are just young kids that are finally figuring it out <hes> in and starting to become really well rounded cases <hes> along the likes of nato <hes> marcel silva everton everton louise's has been fantastic alongside kyle beckerman <hes> di mare krylov albert reuss knock in addition of sam johnson a player that i know we'll talk about later sure that <hes> you know for the first time in a long time are so has a true nine a true striker a guy who had the speed athleticism of rob finlay but i think is is a much more composed player with the way that he takes his spots anticipates a and is a really good goal score unfortunately with a with a couple of injuries that may be slowed down the amount of games. We'd all like to see him play for ourself. Well said doney you mentioned you know the kids figuring it out and maybe they've had to do it under a really interesting locker room situation you know obviously might pecci suspended and then fired earlier this month but then you know freddy juarez comes in and the team has success under him you know we'll leave the circumstances of pet. He's firing. You know that's already been hashed out in the media. Space says it is and we have all the information we've probably ever going to get pending an op-ed from one of the two parties but in any case what was the mood like in the locker room after that happen been and what has freddy juarez done to stabilize or get this team focus yeah really quick because i just want full disclosure for everyone listening because because a lot of people if you don't know a lot of people do know that <hes> i co hosted show with mike techie and podcast and it's been a lot all the time with mike <hes> you know grew up playing in major league soccer against him <hes> and like i tweeted out after the incident didn't <hes> after the announcement of him his his contract being terminated that you know to be clear and above board here. I do consider my good friend. <hes> i do not believe he is racist or homophobic. I think he he used the word that right now. In in two thousand nineteen cannot abused <hes> especially in conjunction with any type of soccer game or football match. I was just in l._a. For the l._a. Cruises will match and the s._p._n. We had a we had an official apology when that word was used on the very first goal kick mike and i have touched and talked about a a bunch of subjects that were near and dear to both of our hearts and right before the incident <hes> you know we we we talked about my father. Who's a proud gay man. In living in california <hes> we talked about laura harvey from the utah royals <hes> who was on our broadcast in our podcast in coming out for the first time publicly and while mike use the horrible word and weaponized that word <hes> you know i just wanted to make it clear from my point of view from my background with yeah because i know there was a lot of labels thrown around out <hes> you know the decision of the word to use and who mike was as a father as a husband and as a man <hes> <hes> and i feel as though i just wanted to kind of come out publicly in in just let everyone know that while i think he has yet to take the opportunity to speak publicly on the incident i just hated seeing his name tarnished in the way that he he was so that being said <hes> <hes> freddie wars freddie people i. I don't know how many people know this but greg vanney and freddie warez were kind of the originators of casa the grand and the are so academy when it got started down in arizona so freddie knows both associates knows <hes> justin glad knows aaron. Harare are knows all these kids really really well because he lived with them and i feel bad i just live with all these cats stuck in this campus down in arizona <hes> you know through or their their their teenage years <hes> but then coming up to salt lake and coaching the rail monarchs in their first year and then becoming the assistant for jeff khazar then kind of <hes> <hes> the right hand man for my techy much the same way that <hes> robin frazier was my techies right hand man at the rebels <hes> he knows these guys and i think the on <unk> quite honestly the only the only issue for freddie in this interim role was instead of being the guy that can kind of be the intermediary mediary can be the guy that players kind of turn to and bitch and moan about not playing and getting minutes <hes> now. He's the guy that is making the decision who's starting starting in who's getting the minutes in dealing with frustrated players that are coming off and being subbed <hes> outside of that his tactical acumen. He's he's super intelligent about the game. He played at a pretty good level in minnesota in the u._s. L. days <hes> before retiring comes from a great background pedigree in new mexico with club soccer in his family running club soccer so he he's just he. I think in a really bad situation for everybody involves <hes> has done offense has the job of a really coordinating in bringing all of these guys together with all the outside noise kind of being <hes> pushed just away from the team and just being about performances in controlling what they can control while said donnie indefinite re tweet and favourite on the comments that you made about pecci a couple of minutes ago. Let's transition to stuff on the field. Sam johnson was maybe the one player i was really interested in with this team going into the season with the signing and obviously so you know the first real big number nine from equality and a pedigree standpoint i would say since probably alvarado saba arena and then you know he was kind of in and out of the team. I can't remember there was an injury in there but you know he comes back in. He had a goal against seattle. You know that was a fantastic performance overall by him and then by the team as a whole what is sam johnson bringing to this team right now going rocky mountain cup and how does he compliment cory byrd albert rusnak at all yeah i am so i'll go back to preseason <hes> picked up a knee injury on the artificial turf out in hawaii <hes> for the very first trip of the season but you could already tell his speed his athleticism his intelligence i mean he is super super intelligent with the way that he plays the position and then <hes> the the physical traits that he has a he's in. I guess to kind of draw the parallel he's he's a lot like kawhi in terms of his movement in the box in his presence in the box but he's also a lot like christmas the lousy in the way in which he keeps his shots on frame and i think that's the one thing that chris never gets enough credit. Four is is his movement in the box but his ability to keep his shots on frame and i think that's what's impressive about sam. What's different about this team. When samson lineup is the touch you touched on szabo uram of sissy and for that one season when he returned from russia <hes> it was the first time they really had a true nine because whether it was corey berto airtours luis silva or it's been dominant cry lock <hes> it was kind of this round robin of false nines and false signs that all had different physical michael traits. They played the positions in similar format but the guys that we're going to corey can stretch the field but his hold a play. It wasn't really that good. <hes> lewis wanted to kind of bring the ball down in combined really quickly as opposed to maybe turn and run in damn ear to d'humieres. Just one of the most well rounded technical players that i've seen in a really nice guy off the field but when you bring sam in sam has all the physical traits of a great nine <hes> the you know the the ability to run in off the shoulders of the two centre backs a guy that that knows how to hit i and bumped centrebacks and and just offset them a little bit <hes> he anticipates really really well and if you go back and watch the game against columbus crew in the two that he gets there <hes> it's. It's the run win win. A centreback just for quick second hesitates the next thing you know he jumps and he's got to speed to pull away. All of these things have been really really impressive and for the first time in years ourselves had a true striker <hes> that causes havoc in stretches the field and i think ultimately that <hes> that that that clears a lot of space for a guy like reuss knock to find the the tempo and the rhythm of the game for guys like demeer cry lock <hes> but his edition and everton the wheezes addition which i think everton might be the biggest addition <hes> in the off season for what he's brought to the midfield <hes> both tactically and technically alongside longside kyle <unk> kyle beckerman <hes>. It's forced guys like zooplankton to be completely out of the team. Even in the midst of a failed transfer down to athletic edison luiz mackie's <hes> so i think <hes> craig waibel done a really really good job in the off season of not only bringing players in within maybe setting up this team if they had lost you up lot to if they had lost jefferson submarine jefferson severino in the in the summer transplant it was a great run a form right now <hes> that this team still would have been able to compete for one of those spots in the western conference playoff race donny your great guest because you segue perfectly into my next question <hes> speaking of jiao who has victimized the rapids in this rivalry throughout the years. I guess what is his future with the club right. Now you mentioned mention him. You know being mostly a bench player on less than two hundred minutes played england play this year you know what role does he have the rest of the season and potentially beyond yeah i i've got to be honest with you. I don't know i am really not sure because this you apply to that ourselves fan saw two years ago. It's not as you walk walk through that we've seen in two thousand nineteen <hes> and i think his place regardless of the interest from athletic <unk> who was the team that knocked out <hes> knocked out diego maradona's dorado side <hes> down in <hes> in in in mexico in a race to be promoted to ligue keke's <hes> everything was agreed upon <hes> the transfer number was agreed upon the agreement between the clubs was agreed upon the players salary and the agency was agreed upon and then when the day came to transfer the funds the funds never came through and socio who had already been given the leave of absence <hes> you know the the tail tucked between his legs returning to real salt lake and i think we're all wondering and i go back to sam the acquisition of sam then meant corey baird who was playing as a nine was now an outside attacking midfielder and then you throw settle and use throw <hes> jefferson severino and you throw brooks linen all into that equation and joie was no longer a starter for also rake even heading into the year <hes> so <unk>. I've been saying this last two games. Zhao's come off the bench. I think could be a really important piece of the puzzle heading into the playoff race but that's that's up to him because we have yet to see joie plaza that we all were impressed by the speed the athleticism technical ability the goal scoring hiring. I mean he struck fear into any right back that he came up against because he could take you to the end line yet variation of service and he was he was always kind of this little pop up in the box fox <hes> that player hasn't been seen in a while so i think like all the rest of the ourselves fans <hes> everybody's kind of waiting to see who is your black to now now in the second half of the season and ultimately what does his future look like with real salt lake in the off season. We'll have to see whether or not we see him on saturday dan <hes> let's transition to the backline doney all right. Let's see if i can get this right nato omaha her boss all right is the new center back for our s. l. We saw him earlier. This season manchester city youth player a full disclosure. I'm a full messy supporter when it comes to the premier remember league so i'm very familiar with him from his time with q._p._r. He had an injury and then was back in the squad. How's he getting along and what's that relationship like with what i would save an improved justin gladden twenty nine thousand nine yeah good shout <hes> you know he he he was he signed last summer and it was is the final days of the summer transfer window when he signed and at the time everyone was like well. Why are you signing this english centreback from q._p._r. When you have marcelo silva and just glad and craig waibel just looked at everybody was like just wait so a next thing you know heading into the final two games of the season justin grads on the bench who had started thirty three consecutive games all year long and next thing you know it's native marcello in their starting center back for the final game at portland. I believe in at l. a._f._c. <hes> when they knocked out of the playoffs and then the two legged affair against against sporting kansas city names by the way i off one of the most intelligent human beings that you'll come across and then he's got that proper english accent so you just feel dump standing around him when he opens his mouth and then he's a specimen i mean he is he's. He's not homicide alavi size but he's pretty damn close. <hes> and i think what what's been impressive is. This is a guy in one of the first conversations with craig waibel liable to say. I wanna turn justin glad into a full u._s. International i mean you think about you know when when when you have that opening conversation with a player and the first thing out of his mouth is i wanna turn this young kid into a u._s. International you know he's a leader right. You know he's a guy that <hes> sees the potential has been paying attention and then not only does he wanna play but he wants to help develop and and i think that's you know within the growth of major league soccer. I think a lot of teams right now are holding on for dear life. You know the have nots in the conversation of the haves and the have nots are just trying trying to get the best players they can possibly get in at the moment <hes> and then there's some teams that have been able to kind of do their due diligence and recognize the value of the human being as well as the player and a side note. That's the hope that's my hope in the gross of of major league soccer that we start going down that direction <hes> the to bring it back to him. I think his consistency from training camp <unk> how comfortable he was around the players just glad breaking <hes> breaking a toe right before the start of the year when it was supposed to be here nadim marceau's silva is just a a uruguay warrior is what i call him but you know he he's for the last two and a half years has been banged up in you know we'll start nine games and maybe missed the next six games for like a soft tissue issue soft doc muscle tissue <hes> problem so natives been super <hes> super fit. He was malicious. Challenge in against the columbus crew who <hes> one of the substitutes came in and started throwing his weight around and literally launched himself into nato and needham ended up having an addict or strain so he missed about four or five <music> games <hes> but he's back in. It's it's a healthy rotation now between marcello justin and nate him <hes> and i think the first time really in the history rail salt lake they have three <hes> very solid centreback options were usually as we see in most analysts teams you've got to centrebacks and then god forbid one of go down because then you're in big trouble <hes> let's transition to bigger picture oursel- currently fourth in the western conference eight games is left to play and look at this western conference and it's l. a._f._c. You could argue colorado rapids in vancouver at the bottom and the middle that sandwiches just completely crunched up what what do you see in terms of playoff expectations and hopes for our cell or i mean. Is this question. Just gonna completely change from week to week done i i it is you've got a great question right here because what i've been saying since the start of the year <hes> i think elliot c is by far above everybody else and then i said three through ten is very similar <hes> and then what were i think what we're seeing is really to through ten is pretty similar in terms arms of the quality of team quality of players and it's all based on current form <hes> if you would've told me minnesota united was the second place team at the turn of september our <unk> you're out of your goddamn mind and yet adrian heath <unk> nausea lonzo and young grey goose and arlington title flying the galaxy somehow bring in a christian provan on loan when he's twenty two million dollar player. I believe <hes> <unk> but i'm glad that he's in because lots on actually has another ferrari in the garage as opposed to a bunch of fiat's and then i think everyone else is is pretty much the same <hes> i think it's a big game on thursday night when we see sporting kansas city at home against minnesota. Could we see the final nail of could i go par. Be the final nail of the coffin of peter vermes forty kansas city this season he houston firing wilmer cabrera with with that firepower. I still can't figure out how bad they are and then f._c. Dow's portland san jose seattle real salt lake all very very similar teams a lot of ways <hes> so i think it's all all about form and and you're right. It is gonna be week-to-week. Obviously there's no doubt about it. <hes> it's a chance still i think for teams like vancouver and colorado. <hes> you know ten points off. Little momentum is there. Is there a miracle run. Is there a fairy tale storyline in their time's running out but i still think there's individual assets the bottom of the table that can really up and a lot of hopes in this western conference playoff race i would agree and if that miracle runs happening. It definitely definitely has to start on saturday so i guess with that money. The rapids of made a big deal about set pieces. They have made a big deal out of counter-attacks. We've spoken about the depth r._s. Wrestle house at the centre back position and you know i think both of these teams are very competent in on the white side of the ball both ends center fullbacks and wide players. Here's what do you see in. Those individual matchups being the key to ourselves getting a win on saturday. Yeah i think both teams playing the four to three one or at least a hybrid rid of four to three one. I i still think with chi and diego rubio <hes> playing off each other. They can cause a lot of havoc just a ton to have it in. I think it's always interesting when mosquitos comes into a match what he looks like because i think over the years in at certain points this season for colorado <hes> he's been impactful and then other times he's been completely missing <hes> callanan jack sitting or holding in a one one sitting one given the free muscle a little bit higher. <hes> you know the you've got quality there sam nicholson on one side. I think he's he's just one of those players that has a variation nation of service and can be dangerous shinya sheikhi. I'm i'm not sure what his position is. I know he's been kinda thrown into a couple of different. A couple of different looks <hes> <hes> but ultimately when i look at colorado i i know they've addressed. The goalkeeper. Position are excuse me the center back position with boubacar coming over on alone but with tommy smith. I'm never sure which version of tommy smith we're gonna get our are we going to are we going to get a guy. That's <hes> you know has the experience he has and can be the leader in the vocal leader and be the player that can essentially shut down the opponent or we're going to get the guy that puts in the half effort a <hes> to close down a space or starts you know being demonstrative with the players around him when he's at fault when the goals are being conceited and then with clint with with no tim right now <hes> you know for clint <hes> we know he's a good shot stopper. He's getting up there. <hes> the questions will be when the bulls play do his feet. What kind of pressure is applied by the opponent <hes> so outside backs can get forward as opposed to getting ten back and if they do get if they do you get forward with vines and rosen berry. Can they find that right balance in the shake <hes> because ourselves one of their biggest strength is going to be in the transition and when that bowls turned over they try to get four with numbers quickly <hes> so ousted doesn't matter it's just gonna be one hell of a battle <hes> and while it might not have this shine in terms of the rivalry that a lot of these other quote unquote rivalries have <hes> there's definite history and i think the fans are always excited when these two teams switch other well said let's get out with a couple more questions here done i one nick raimondo pending that miracle playoff run by the rapids probably the last time that the rapids will be seeing him playing give me one really good nick raimondo story ideally rocky mountain cup but just one that you think sums him up that maybe we haven't unheard before oh man <hes> grew up with nick <hes> i was older than nick and southern california and when our high schools will play each other knicker mondo would plays a ten in in the first forty five minutes and try to get the lead in the second half going goal and try to hold onto that lead so they could win at montclair high school <hes> for me. I'll remember knicker mondo as a guy who probably could have left m._l._s. at different stages of his career <hes> but but by staying has cemented himself as the best goalkeeper in the history of goalkeepers that have only played their career in major league soccer. <hes> the the the the joker. I guess the moniker while the wasatch comes down to is ability to save an unbelievable amount of penalties throughout the course of his career here <hes> and in the like in the ilk of a matt reese of tony meola <hes>. I still think nick raimondo is the best goalkeeper to have ever played a major league soccer with his feet. Whether it's <hes> you know hitting these frozen ropes volleys or whether it was kind of <hes> fainting insane players do a tom cruise fly as they go to ground and he just kinda chops them up. I think our soul fans in m._l._s. fans will miss him but unfortunately <hes> you know the the game becomes cruel as ages undefeated so last couple of matches for necker mondo and and father time calling calling it quits on him <hes> but i still think he's going to be one for the record books and i think a lot of those records unfortunately are never going to be touched based on the longevity nobody of his career off of that question and then similar to shop lots normally at the end of the show or at the end of the enemy. We'd like to ask about former rapids players so at the risk of opening up some very old wounds regarding kyle beckerman. What future does kyle have with the team. You know now that he also is getting up there erin age yeah i i'm. I'm interested in this one because kyle <hes>. I've you know it was tyrone. Marshall is assistant coach myself nick raimondo kyle kyle beckerman. We're all down to miami with the miami fusion and watching <unk> turn from like this precocious under seventeen curly hair player that was like an off the shoulder striker to then a central midfielder and then to publishers running shop for years dread dread out <unk> out in colorado and by the way <hes> i still think that that trade for many baluchi plus picking up many baluchi salary <hes> <hes> man i i still can't figure out what fernando clubby ho was doing at the time <hes> rest his soul but yeah right no comment whatsoever by the way i still love when kyle came back the very first time and right after kickoff literally like two seconds in he just wallops pablo and gives a yellow card. It just set the set the stage of the game. I thought it was amazing. Listen cotton kyle is still the <unk> when you out to practice in y- you for those that hey kyle beckerman you know it's it's that'll never change because he's one of those guys that you absolutely despise him much like pablo pablo and then the moment that he's on your team. You're like oh yeah. Do this guy's awesome. We love him. He's our guy but you hate him when he's on the other team so i get get that you know he is like ozzy and and <hes> you know diego chara those types of players so i am fully aware of of how fancy him but right. He's got to practice matt he still i think he's probably the best player on the field. I mean the the work rate that he puts in the level of competition. How how focused he i mean i stopped caring about losing a practice. Probably in my late twenties <hes> this guy still still cares any soon as late thirties and he gets pissed if he loses and so it it's it's fun to watch a guy who who cares this much i by not by not by not putting date on his retirement i think every year we find ourselves thinking okay this the last year. Kyle's gotta loses legs this year right. There's no way he can play and then they signed an everton louise and you're like this guy. His workload has been halved and he's flying all over the place. Any still kyle is barking mon in players and the referees and you know i just i respect the hell out of it so i hope i mean his wife is from salt lake. They have a child. They've they've got roots here. <hes> i could see him heavily involved with the club one day going forward forward. I don't think that time is anytime soon. I i still think at a bare minimum. He's got another year left him. <hes> which is crazy crazy to think about <hes> and i think ulta <hes> and i think the club also learned from the departure of javier morales a few years ago and how strain that was because club wanted to move on and wanted hobby the developer of players around him hobbies still thought he was the best player on the field and wanted to continue to play one more season n._f._c. dallas but you know it it frayed relationships <hes> so yeah i could see kyle involved a on the field i could see cal involved in some aspect off the field and i quite honestly i could see cal just saying ethic. I'm gonna go out and fly fish. You know out in the rivers in utah and i'm done with soccer. You know pull a clint dempsey <hes> so we'll see but again i just got the utmost respect for kyle and the way he handles his business <hes> i have you know i still still put him in that upper echelon of unbelievable pros just day in day out any such a good role model for the young players around him how to how how how to d analyst guy and put yourself into the us men's national team and be a starter at the world cup. I still think is an incredible incredible achievement but then the day to day leadership. I think affords a lot of these young players for real salt lake an opportunity how to recognize how to be a good pro. I'll have to excuse me go back and look at that yellow card that he got against pablo in the rocky mountain cup but i guess on on that doney. What do you see in this game on saturday and who's lifting the trophy. Be the end of the night oh boy. I think it's going to be as always when these two teams play each other. They're just gonna lump each other up and down the field <hes> in the midfield. I i still go back just to be clear to prove that i'm not a homer complete homer at least <hes> i still can't figure out how justin glads red card was overturned last game. I mean i was saying it on the on the podcasts. Try cashcall. There's no chance that this'll be overturned and next thing you know it's overturned. All i saw was studs up <hes> and also kind of i think they benefited off <hes> what was it nick beezer handball in the box which was pretty clear the ball do come off his arm. <hes> it'll be a battle in the midfield third. It'll be a battle all of mistakes and chances capitalized on and i think anytime you've got rubio and camara up top. Those two are quite the handful for for different aren't reasons <hes> but for our so at home outside of this hour f._c. Result <hes> they've been a really really good run a form confident run a form <hes> <hes> since some disappointing games that they dropped early in the season <hes> and and i and i and i honestly think that with the week of training that they put put in and the disappointment of <hes> of the way the game got away from them being up a man that it'll be a great opportunity for for real salt lake at home against colorado team that i think now wants to play spoiler more than anything in and what a great week to start absolutely donnie at brian dunne south on twitter. Thank you for your time. Sir yeah no problem appreciate it looking for in the next one welcome back listeners to holding the highlight of red read any random seth. Thank you very much for your time rabbi. Marc goodman is time predictions nascar d._h._l. Would you see in this rocky. Mountain cup game on saturday. Saturday was the scoreline into the rap is ultimately listed trophy for the first time in a while ago man. <hes> you know you you tipped your hat. In a big way with the away record of the rapids have this season just the basic statistics state that <hes> on on that note that we're unlikely to reverse course and suddenly get it together and have a really great away game when we have not had a really great away game in a really long time <hes> another way of slicing this is to say that <hes> no matter how good the rapids are in any given season our s. L. seemed to confound us almost every single time <hes> the winning team of the the <hes> rocky mountain cop at this point i think is i'm trying to look at the record right now for who's won the last. It's bad mark. Don't look at it. It's bad don't look at let's see he took it in eighteen seventeen sixteen fifteen twenty me thirteen last time rapids wanted. I believe that sounds right our mojo. It's been a long. They're all together from all of those losses that had you watch the rio not yeah. It's it's var so long story short. We don't win this this this competition very often. This is also also not going to be the year for us so no win at at at the riots year. Salt lake takes two to one. I'll take it by the same scoreline with of course that ourselves probably gonna win it three with the rapids having my nine men on the field at the end of it i just i see this game being being a little bit direct in terms of very physical midfield and both teams just trying to go to their number nine you know as a top ryan dunn seth sam johnson brings another shaped ourselves absolutely benefits them and i think this is a game from long ball standpoint. The <unk> gonna have his hands full but also the very good test for justin. I'm glad and a native on wall hasso on. I'm really excited to see what that looks like. Goals me you know. I think it'll be two one on. It'll probably be one at the time that ourselves sell scores on their second goal qualities him point from their form standpoint obviously wanting to respond after losing sue l. a._f._c. Knowing this arrival. I will regain. This is a must win game in terms of their playoffs and everything i. I think that's going to galvanize our s. L. o. or the rapids had <hes>. You know maybe a rough week last week on. I just think ourselves too good at this point and ultimately like it's gonna take me physically being there. Witnessing the rapids win a game at the rio t in order for me to i believe this team is capable of it. You know even though the stadiums almost a decade old at this point. I gotta get some frequent flyer miles together out to salt lake with you next year for to do that. Minor correction correction the rapids did win the rocky mountain cup in two thousand fifteen in a memorable although terrible kind of way the rapids were if i can recall what was that jared watson is marc jerry watson his. I don't think so this is a different game they they they lost. It was a three game series. They lost the final game and were eliminated from the playoffs but they <hes> is long agar hit yeah. They won on aggregate was an away way goal or something like that that they pulled off in garbage time that that pull them. I someone out there. In rapid land is going to be like no. No you got the wrong rabbi but i remember two thousand fifteen being the kind of game where it was a very pure victory won the rocky mountain cup but we lost the game and it was kind of embarrassing and it was <hes> it was like that moment matrix worse <hes> <hes> one of the characters saying not like this not like this yeah. We didn't want to win it that way all right. Let's get to ask a she shot mark. I'll we'll start eric. Jansen has a couple questions for us tonight on a couple of i i do together so he asked is clint. Irwin automatically the number will keep your next year or somehow retiring <unk> season. I think he has done enough and light likes his history here and based on <hes> interview loves hiking mountains yet fantastic sitdown listeners that i will encourage you to listen to <hes> that he had <hes> with connor honor. Keep the color commentator on the radio for the rap is via the rapids podcast however you get your <unk> rapids podcasts probably on there and it was fascinating to hear how clint irwin you know is more of a person intellectual beyond the normal stereotypes that associated goalkeepers on and then fall fall questions a one b. I guess if we were to choose between clint irwin exactly math assuming both were available in similar salaries. I'm assuming mark off the top of my eh both within about one hundred thousand of each other. I think irwin slightly more of their pretty darn close <hes> who would you choose so mark is clint irwin the number of the assume boom number one goalkeeper for the rap. It's twenty twenty and if we could revisionist history choose between clinton and zach map. Who would you choose. I don't think that client plan is to the assumes the goalkeeper for next year and that's only because i'm not entirely sure that they believe they can't do better somehow. I like clint a lot. I think that his track record though at this point is that he is a slightly slightly above average. M._l._s. hieber and i feel like in this league. That may not be good enough. The other question is a little while but is the question of the rapids wanted to be avant-garde and daring they might go for throwing aid rodriguez. The in the nineteen year old academy products into the mix navy's not ready to start next year but you know i think i think it's entirely possible the wrap this would keep cleaner win for next year but also sign a goalkeeper who could push him and open the question immediately as the weather is the starter or the backup <hes> the other question you can look at again. Goalkeeper expected goals and get a decent as a number on this. It's kinda close right now as to which one's better <hes> i think that zach mcmath had some decision making problems early on season season for vancouver that may cost him a few goals but in terms of reaction in positioning he's about as good as it gets an uncleaner when a steady <hes> all around good goalkeeper in my humble opinion so. I don't know that there's a really good way to there's not a lot daylight between these two goalkeepers. They're both above average but probably not elite m._l._s. goalkeepers. What are your thoughts on. I would think a my first this question on that standpoint in terms of is clint irwin the presumed starter for twenty twenty israeli what direction that new head coach is taking the rapids peeing the on that <hes> you know obviously very stop shot or shot stopper. Excuse me on he is. I think he's good in terms of his communication standpoint. I mean i question some of his service out of the back with the wrapping up playing out of the back or directing on goal kicks you know we collected the ball. We've got or like let me get a counterattack setup on. I think howard is a little bit more. You know maybe techniques that good with old age but cerebral really. That's something living that he's actively thinking that attack with a throw of better than any player in the league but one thing that i've noticed about tim the last couple of years is is long. Getting out of the back has gotten progressively worse. He he used to be an extremely accurate <hes> long passer out of the back and if if you look at his numbers of the last year they -nificant declined to wish bow their win amit mathur probably an improvement over him. That's fair and that's something. I've actually heard from the front office us that at least under hudson. That's something that they were evaluating. Obviously things change under casey so those are my questions in terms of what is the head coach steve potentially in clint irwin. When does the team in wants to play out of the back and actually play you know the you know the rapids way as articulated from portsmouth to counter years ago on internally in terms of the individuals. I think you know you're looking at tomato tomato at this point so i'm looking at the same chart that we just unique romano on zach map is slightly ahead of arlen. Mcmath and irwin have both played just under six hundred minutes so far this season and their goals against <unk> x. goldmark mcmath ahead with a negative one point six six goals so compared to an average goal keeper. Math has let in one point six fewer goals and earn is just under that in terms of leading in minus honest one point eight or zero point eight two so in terms of that mcmath doubleheader in terms of the negative but this is a little bit weird in terms of it being a discrete data's camp point mark because you can't concede a third of a goal you can only see one goal so really we're talking about. One extra shot the <unk> mathis face a he stopped the irwin. Hasn't i would say in the minutes that we've seen from irwin that has been under conor casey for the cheese. Better better vancouver's been consistent but consistently bad over the course the entire time in their first year so you know both both teams struggled. I don't know that i see enough of them in terms of for me having faith or not bathed in either of them. I think i'll be fine as his point you know math with soma teed gene and you know that new head coach comes in and says you know maths our guy. We're going to have him for twenty twenty and see what happens. There are many other positions on this team. I'm way more worried about than i am. Goalkeeper and i would say the exact same thing clearer. Well set with that mark. Let's head to the the third technically the second main part of the question from eric jansen on that added this kind of fun when that we could go up on <hes> if rabbi in red had to write a rapids general soccer or other book what would the focus beyond on and what would the tidal be related to discussion about the clinton had books choosing to decide on what books you read you know in relation to soccer journey announced our professional approach may be memoirs or just a collection of rain in stories market. We had to sit down and do a holding the highline the book or a book folks series would actually focus on from iraq standpoint will the holding highlights. Here's the difficult graphic because it begs the question like what the two of us would collaborate on a nerd out on together <hes> we're. We're all over the place. We have like a variety of interests. <hes> the mats are one big interest so eight bill. James abstract of the history of the car. I rap is all physics a numbers on every single player that would be a fun dork out book to do that. That would be very. The ball is round dense material. That's like up there with my master's thesis in terms of light young and this is superintendent. There's ten people we're going to be fascinating this. There's no interest yeah maybe yeah i mean you know. A more mass market market interesting history of the car rapids including like a fun wins the goal look back at all of the players. The team has had from from nicholas rocco's to the charles l. along to the junior ago or one out masterpiece half who passed away just today at the young age of forty volaille listeners. I'm forty years old so the fun <hes> but yeah there are a lot of interesting in characters in the history of the rapids that might be interesting to do <hes> any thoughts matt on a book on. Do i feel like just a random like you have the children's nursery rhyme votes that are just like a random collection of short stories almost details sil- i think would be really fun and hilarious because i mean i think both of you both of us independently have find have at least four or five just hilarious interactions with with marcelo balboa they could all your own independent like four or five page white twelve point font doublespace stories in of themselves so just is like random collections or you know kind of like you ever read like who am i thinking of a comedian eddie murphy not eddie murphy chris rock all white guys super nihilism. Why can't remember george carlin like you've ever read a joint on book in michael of some random chapters. You know that are just like you know chapter for. This is a list of people who should be killed in this is related to some of the more violent aspects alexa where he just like one of his some of his chapters are just a random collection of bots that have no real order. There's no other place what i feel like. We we're just a bunch of random bullet point statements of random stories or as we heard or like you were telling me about this. Maybe a week or two ago with you know like the the sam nicholson quote from the game last year asked him about it and he said you know. I'm not really sure i was going. I was kind of just dribbling the ball off the field to go talk to somebody or something. I don't know how that fits into a greater narrative but it's hilarious you know in the context of the overall of the club and i think another thing that maybe you and i would probably have to wait. Wait till everyone associated with front. Office is probably much older in dozen care and certainly nobody currently or recently on his team is anywhere near commerce city in colorado. I've alluded to this on the pipe passed a couple of times now where i think we do a great series of instances of regime change czyz within the rapist or the previous regime made a whole bunch of mistakes that put the new incoming general manager head coaching ever completely behind the ball and children just understanding you know in a in a nihilistic in a sad way that i'm not sure anybody's gonna by of just like this team and the people wanting to continuously not was leased grew over this club for the long term at that would be a fun almost encyclopedia attic histories camp one of understanding that i'm not sure sure would actually sell any books or would be something that would be enjoyable read from somebody who wants to think about the rapid as opposed to earn cooling angry very realistic about this club. Let me read something to be angry be filled by a fall of the roman empire but for the rapid fans yes yeah effectively. That'd be good. Yes yes okay. Let's head onto our next s. Coscia gel this one comes from david malan fan <hes> he had a couple of questions but the one that we're gonna ask specifically on ear. Mark is about the overall roster building so i assume a lot of people like a fair amount of the roster based on the comments that have read although they may have other may not be in love with the results assume you know. Would you replace a she. Gi a sand nicholson account mukasa samba's keegan rover rosen berry a laws in rubio on our recent much about prices value lately is well yet despite all this lovers endurance the roster you know we are clear you know at <hes> at getting results getting results at houston. You know this kind of relates to you know maybe the dodgy in the marlon hairston the departures mark where people generally <hes> within the rapids community agreed these wally players players deserve to be in m._l._s. but ultimately humanely parts of teams ultimately failed. Where do you relate this. In terms of you. Know is the roster being overstated roster turnover and you know is it as simple was bring everybody back. Get a number nine to play next to get a number ten in this team's gonna be totally okay where you see the roster buildings damp wants. It's a good question <hes> by my count looking at my spreadsheet colorado has nine players whose contracts will expire the end. The twenty nineteen <hes> a couple of players every year. Get a real up with the club options. I would guess that roughly that three ish players i would go like that. Then you've got that would mean you got six players who are going to expire return. <hes> there are three open slots on top of that that were not even even kind of talking about and that includes <hes> one of the dp slots for skelton gashi so you're looking at turning turning over roughly nine players which is a pretty high turnover is a medium turnover year for a rap is team in some of the earlier you're years when things were in utter chaos the way we saw as pundits and as rapids fans <hes> the rapidly turnover in a big year thirteen thirteen players so i think i think turning over eight players is is a potentially date <hes> year. I think there's also the likelihood that one or two players here's that we like with longer term contracts who have value in the league a player like <hes> keegan rosen vary ahah player like sam nicholson a player like calendar kosta <hes> even player as a stretch like tommy smith <hes> <hes> could get could get flipped onto another team provide. Tommy smith actually happens to be a lot. According to my records kurds going out of contract option for twenty point everybody pretty much as the way. M._l._s. contracts work is the club always has an option at the end that last year i would be shocked doc. Tommy smith club option is exercised insinuating that he's on a five hundred and forty thousand dollar hummer for six hundred forty thousand dollar contract but yet sightsee this a a long story short without getting into exactly who i think is likely to come back or not. I see a medium-sized turnover year but i do think i think there's obviously because the positions a couple of key positions that are the whole ball lax's team. You know who they bring in for that. Primary primary and secondary d._v. are really going to be the difference between this team being at all relevant in twenty playing or not fair said mark mark david. There's a couple of different groups that i will put players in sue you know that are related to the actual core team. I think there is a young about to to grow into their prime core that you see from the rapids and i think you know the first three the opponent at are the three that guppy contract extension in the middle preseason season so carolina cost now target allocation money home and then budget players for twenty twenty will be still ego repeal and keegan rosen very and i would throw in sam nicholson as well on that in terms of what he's been able to do on the right side of the field. I think he has enough value in the team that on you know he's in that group twenty four twenty twenty five so there's that grew you know that collectively about to enter their prime years of intellect twenty five to twenty eight <hes> on the international market from a soccer sam white and and then i say there's a younger core of the homegrown and then entre she she was twenty two twenty three and then. I'd wanna stay with what he's done with charlotte that on tom nikki jackson is able to enter into that group mark but that's probably t._v._d. The next head coach dino look at that highlight reel and probably talk with jackson and have a sit down in term and so. I think there's the young core. There's the about to enter the prime core and then i think there's a lot of questions as far as veteran or they're actually in their prime. Anybody who takes up a significant amount of assets in terms of salary cap target now he's money or international roster spot. I think you're right mark mark to think that there's some serious doubts about what a tommy smith or danny wilson's future is with the club. I think depending on whether or not that next head coach wants to exit. You grabbed his way at conducted problem. Determine what <hes> what what jack price his future as i think all three of those players you know would have good value value of warren to sell them on somewhere else so i think that middle course ready that young core is ready. I think there's a lot of serious questions about anybody else on that. I think you know high. I tomorrow with what he's done. This season for next year twenty twenty anything else on that. I think is pie in the sky but i think everything else is really just depending on the ideology and what <hes> that had coached the new head coach things and what they term those individual players. Maybe they see something. Tommy smith that they can really bring back but that's really an individual case by his value on an particularly for a budget team like the rapids whether or not on you know they think that they could get something out of it could to get even a meal transfer fee for danny wilson going in oxford united at all that would get them out of that situation for example. I think we we can't we have to include that into the calculus there and that's going to be a decision for the new head coach how they see building the roster and ultimately who's calling up work smith as of january twenty anything else marker. We have our we've alaska she at home so this one comes from <hes> he normally the at least prior to deleting twitter virgin self as eric cameraman in the email referred to his last name. I am hesitant to use it giving. He went by pseudonym so to speak on twitter in any case. Every cameraman asks us us since i'm off twitter. I hope you don't mind the asking a rapid question via email male. Why is cold bassett. Mark not getting playing time is something to do with the rumors about interested in freiburg bit recently gone pretty cold from what we reports on in. Is there a training or an attitude problem mark. We've seen vast anderson gets the minutes when he's not suspended for red card or with key national team. We've seen san vines absolutely locked down that leftback position particularly this past week against albert lee who tore up a dylan cerna and obviously declan when the still injured in coming back to fitness why is it the coal bassett can't get into a midfield condition consistently is half rotation has had had players getting subbed off not playing. This is a huge question. There are lots of answers potential answers and none of them for me is going to be definitive to <hes> strongest possibility from my belief would be. He doesn't quite rate for casey. Conor casey doesn't like what he sees that cassette one side reason for that is that bassett end last season at the beginning of the season <hes> his greatest asset was ability to move the ball laterally and for him to <hes> shimmy wiggle in ways that got him him into a position where he went from the cutoff by defender to being able to make a straight line swear past another player because he you took the right steps over that as the season went on i saw less and less of that it was us after the tighter the ball i don't. I don't know if inserted a second guessed himself or whether it was a confidence issue they don't know whether the expectations of a change in role under different formations nations in different positions play message. This hat i feel like basset was pushed back sometimes into a deeper role and asked to do a more defensive midfield holding type job in didn't wasn't natural the his highness skillset. I feel like maybe he was played out of position or misuse. Maybe he was confused. Navy he lost confidence. Native manager doesn't like him. Maybe doesn't have that sauce like he did. At the beginning beginning of the season at the beginning of i don't know but my take is that i see right. Now is not the goal facet with the same quality that i saw earlier in season. It's not more competent. One any also doesn't do as much coming off the bench like he. He's like all players. He tends to need a little bit of time to walk to the game and if you throw them on late it doesn't do much for him which has been you know kind of showing eighteen and not getting run out. Those are my those are my ankle techs. I will say that from times that i've been in the united united sit down with a couple of weeks ago. The i coninck keys even if you don't see games in terms of him getting minutes or actually showing that there is progress being made or there is progress being attempted. He's usually one of the first runs out of the pace is usually when the last ones out there and he's working on passing and getting finishes on at least you know he's had under conor casey. Maybe we his best chance to break in a little bit more advanced role. I think pricey and callum cost of definitely have those two you know central midfield newell eight positions absolutely on lock in for bass don seat either of them. I think would speak volumes of him but it's certainly an area that he has massive areas for growth but massive areas. There's necessary improvement in that <hes> so i can bit i think eric there is there are areas in which he's improved. Maybe you're not seeing because he hasn't been able to show them on the field in working on it. I mean he's still relatively young kid. You know <hes> sammy binds to turn twenty. You know a couple of months ago. You know vines needed a whole year your u._s._s._l. E._s._l. To figure things out for you know <hes> development standpoint it was better for bassett to begin with professionals with international quality talent in order order to improve. I agree with you mark. Maybe he doesn't rate with conor casey. I'm also a little bit curious whether or not you know baffles. Maybe been pigeon holed into a the situation where there's just there's not a role that inherently yes him whereas with <hes> hudson 3-5-2-formation later the the four four diamond diamond he could be more to that shoveling numbers. Were there really is that you know the teams already pretty stack whether it's john moose coming off the bench she knew she sees sam nicholson nicholson in terms of their actual wingers. I think we both agreed that. Whole basset isn't winger. I think we agreed not a second striker or he has some number ten equality's. It's not anything that's going to unseat. A dig rubio or was zita off the bench and saunders. I'm wondering what his role is. You know if he was in a three man. If your you know where he is the most number ten of them you know callans kind of in the middle on jack price number six but you know he's. He's a great tweezers player. He's he's not an out now. You know your primary roles number ten. Your primary role is number six and he's not quite the quality of the other albeit older and more experienced orient players are so maybe the situation that he's just a fish out of water in terms of the system the carcases playing in again you know i realized defaulting back with this question but it goes back to the next head coach the next big decision for you know it's going for the rap. Is this going to make so many other dominos fall and make things obvious is who's hired as head manager and then what their ideology in their opinions are of everybody. I think that determines the future role the vast has in terms of minutes played whether he's doc mentor a starter and even wear on the field what he's asked to do because there's no specific role that i see him playing right now that he's able to unseeded existence starter did he's not going to be able to do more than come off for twenty minutes to give somebody arrests that that i do see measurable progress in washing him in training we just haven't been able to see can't partially because i haven't. I don't think he's been given the opportunities not any fault of his own fault of conor casey but rather just the circumstances the clubs in right now. I think he's had a really well. I love that analysis that is about a natural best position for him. I am having flashbacks to the conversations that we had not you and i but other folks around the car rapids in two thousand fourteen hundred fifteen regarding dylan powers who it was a it was a great year for oscar razz rookie in two thousand thirteen and then never found it again and the debate that raged amongst a hardcore fans what is dylan power best position is e. A. is the intent is six. Why don't we blame on the wing what should be and it was super frustrating because he never got you know three straight games in the same position and when he did he kinda was disappointing super frustrating and you know what with orlando they haven't found anything better out of him. He's an off the bench fill in <hes> you know swiss army knife utility infielder type player and that's that's what became of him. I hope that that doesn't happen. We've we've called basset but i think as possible. How many minutes do you think concern scotland with orlando in league play our powers yes stonehouse. I know he started a- at least one game. I know that he came off the bench in two or three game. I think he might have started to do some basic math and say he has two hundred eighty minutes. He has played five hundred and thirty appeared in six games in the place. I so i cannot speak to you in orlando made it all the way to the semifinals. Maybe got a bunch of starts in there that then made him not available or not available to start on moluccan played but that's more than five hundred minutes five hundred thirty minutes in league play in two thousand nineteen so six games in five and five hundred thirty minutes is basically started it. All five games in plate all started six games in played almost the whole time yup pretty much. That's great. I guess yeah i mean i. I'm about where you are at like. I would have said maybe three hundred or four hundred minutes. Maybe total all competition including the u._s. Open cups everything. Maybe that's the seven hundred at the absolute most but you know that's you know. Orlando orlando still a really bad team only playing six games. That's you know i kind of said this about him. When i got some black on twitter for saying you know this was a super king the ask you you know. Powered wasn't able to get on a bench that last season under master rainy on eighteen was competing for the wooden spoon. Yeah what you know. Something has orion. Some of the unit is not you if you are not able to get on the field for a team that is struggling for anything now. Maybe that was just heating rate for mastroeni throw any time but i mean he went there and then i can guessing christ that fired and then you know clearly you utility player from own coil but clearly are not only excuse me james o'connor and clearly j._c. doesn't see amazon outhouse start over the other options. The has on our land whose playoff hopes you're still hanging by orlando's us. Midfield is the most haptic unhappy group of players. I could ever imagine it's sasha <unk> who has burned burnout is welcome but he was transferred and has also issued some cryptic statements that have been <hes> implying that he's not happy in orlando. Now it's will johnson who has a domestic violence conviction and seeming they generally crazy person generally right roundly disliked by lots of people around the league for being really physical and making questionable decisions in game and then it's and then it's still empowers and i think there's at least least one or two other midfielders in their central midfielders but that's that's pretty wackadoo bunch in the middle so i don't know man. I don't know yeah all. I just gonna o'connor on the lots of work with they keep them on next year. I'll have to work on your mark all right listener as follows individually on twitter at soccer kermit <unk> rabbi at l. w. manpower listen or watch our read our written contact -at's right in the good stuff for pittsburgh soccer now and rabbi marc goodman backslash soccer underscored rabbi you can catch my rap is content and for me last word on soccer dot com false wherever you get your podcast pretty much every podcast you want to search rapid ninety six podcasts or holding the highline <hes> you know race reviews harris console for media.

Thanks for tuning in. Let's. John Completely. Comedy. The beaver. Joe. My name is Chris Hockey and I am glad you are here. Right now, which is fine. So none of us are working together at this point. which is good. It's a good thing. Like I prefer doing comedy in front of people I'm not necessarily working with. 'CAUSE when you bomb in front of the people that you don't have to see every day, it's okay. People get over it. But if I got to see you the next day at the office. That's awkward. And it's not the regular kind of like. The same tied at this is awkward. Thinking about quitting drinking or at least giving it a long break. Yard. I heard it. Yeah, right. That's a lot of times. People will boo when I say that like. Quitting. I. Thank you. You're right. What was I thinking? And those people that are they don't know me. You're I mean people booth there by telling my friends, my family to quit drinking and like good. It's all strangers like boo. They don't know for all. They know like three beers in like. All right.

Wow, it's not what you think it is. and. Explains Not Weird to see naked people. We see nudity all the time you know cable and are rated movies, but those people in the movies have been preapproved to be naked. They went through a casting director or somebody you know everybody gets onto the nude beach it's not the playboy channel down there. It's more like the discovery channel. I'm not sure who made the human body especially after I saw the nudists involved in sporting activities. There's nothing more confusing than watching a naked man running. Some things are not so good at high speed. That's why I couldn't believe it when I found out the first Olympics in eighty degrees were performed completely in the nude hundreds of years. Why don't they bring this back to the Olympics? Boost the ratings who wouldn't tune in to see the nude lose. Put a new twist on the men's hurdles to. Removed to after. All right. I can do that August six, twenty, twenty, the power to your morning show I'm cory go. That's Chris Hockey. That's sauce I. Guess Acor. Back There Zach should be here in a second time. Olsen should be walk into the door in a matter of moment some bitch lever later Rosie later lots of fun between now and nine o'clock. Zach soon, be late my. But went of gas again, he couldn't find this key. Where they tucked into your. Yup. How's it going to hear them I haven't figured that part out Willie Vantage Brand Fourteen. Fourteen Zach bit when it got. Yeah. Got It. What's you're probably the way here because he's going to be going so fast. Yeah. Down Zach. Fourteen Hard you supposed to be sitting in the car? No No. No. True. Sure. Yell at is loud as you Kansas. Chris Wakes up and Zach Slam. Fell her hockey. Bell. Linda the. Spine between the seats in the back seat. So I won't give the numbers because I don't want to put you in a bad spot sauce, but I was driving on pre-ninety-four today. And I quickly. I forgot how? Fast, the speed limit is and I looked down and I was going twelve over not the end of the world, right? Nobody's on the road, right? But. It's a spot that a cop almost always is sitting like when I see a cop on three, ninety, four I was coming up on where they normally sit here and I'm like well, I got a slow down. This is kind of like that speed trap SPA. This is where they hide. So I slowed down and I thought you know what? That's my if I had been pulled over on three ninety four. going. Twelve. Over. Actually this is going to give the number away. It's too late. Now there's no turning back. That would have been my luck to get a ticket going twenty one miles an hour slower than. was. Right. Yeah It's it's it's like the equivalent of when you're driving on the road and a guy is on your word. and. So you get over and you give him the stair and he's gone at least ninety five. In like five minutes later on the same road you get pulled over where were you? When that guy? That? DOUCHEBAG right. If I was doing one hundred exactly if I would have been pulled over this morning for twelve over I would've said. Jerry chance you pulled over. A guy in a tesla. Yeah. About a month ago. Why did you let? Me Pages sports talk show host of the year show. Episode aren't you GonNa? Ask me where I'm going to work I'm going to the same show. Daddy's a lawyer. Yeah, maybe. Sorry I raise a lawyer so much how? Great Great. Past you know what does it act such a good did make it. Did you ever minutes late you find your keys in your. Pink Wallet. Deep in the crevice of the couch and I had no idea how they got there but I have an idea. To. Were you getting it on. Know what the couch Oh. Around cal. Nothing wrong with the couch. But whose parents chased law. Right. Oh. Lucky. Are Those still thing? Yeah. Yeah. Madison dumb on this past week. Oh. That's right. Loss you zach. Time you May. Yeah, he found him. Houston the thing stupid thing about that is it's like the last thing I grabbed when I go out the door so it's not like I can. Am I supposed to? Plan for a fifteen to twenty minute. Adventure and finding my car keys when. I guess I don't know. I drove way way too fast, but we got her. So we're good. Well. You didn't get pulled over because last time I checked you're not telling me. I'm not. You're. Not. You're not the magnetic you're not. You're not the magnetic whip out my city pages award not yet not until next year. Then we'll have to find both DADS. But what if? What if today was the one day that the city pages guy listen bill. Right. I can't give. Got The make up for it. I guess you will well, you'll start a strong. Thanks. WanNa start with something. Fun Drinking. Yeah. Drinking this little story. This morning was fascinating Well, somebody to the where's is breaking Oh. Here it is. So. They did a survey of two thousand drinkers. And I think somebody stats are super super fascinating. They went through. What kind of alcohols do what to you the most for example? Blank drinkers get arrested the most Tequila. Get has not I promised vodka I I'd say Tequila I agree with Hawk Ski Whiskey. Is the right hats and got whiskey drinkers get arrested the most almost twice as many said, they were drinking whisky compared to rum, which was second-place Tequila was third. How about this? This is Super Fun. Blank drinkers are the most likely to get naked in public. Akilah Tequila. Incorrect Oh. Vodka drinkers are number one. Yeah. You're most likely to get a tattoo after drinking blank Kayla. I'm sorry I've had some bad days. Willing. To Do, anything? Any Drinks Tequila yeah. Got Naked and was throwing up and drinking a hot tub water right to your point right I. Believe you're you're not legally supposed to do tattoos if somebody's not supposed to write but still happens right for co-writes. Yeah. That's that's what Las Vegas our. Yeah. You could bring Bernie and get him a tattoo. Whatever you need, just give me the money. Correct. Bernie Sanders. Late to. Medicare. I'm asking once again for a tattoo. Again. vodka was the right answer. Most. Likely to get a tattoo after drinking vodka. Rum was second at twenty. One. You're most likely to set something on fire. While drinking blank I'll just hold my answer, but you know what? I'm. GonNa go with hockey same? I want. To keep. Your mostly great set on fire Kita while drinking Tequila. And last but not least. Blank causes the worst hangovers. I'M GONNA go with Tequila No. For me. It's cheap whiskey. Rum Cheap whiskey me just yeah I'll go rob rail isky. This, is also great. Keila River. Yes. So here's here's the order though that they that they found they said Tequila according to the two thousand persons has the worst hangovers. Followed by vodka then whiskey in third Roman fourth GIN and V two Keeler drink. Tequila drinkers also have the most blackouts. Just, under four a year, you just get blackout drunk. Yeah. These people are partying. The kind of drinkers that have the fewest blackouts a year are Scotch drinker. That's my old man that's like the. Thing right as you have like one Nice Right One Nice Gach Dad though, right that's like an old man. You don't get hammered office. Scotch. Nine and then goes over to Haughey's or if he knows what's good for them. Tequila stimulant not a depressant really kinda gets more fired up I can feel it. It's like documented truth I believe so. Yes a lot of people say that if you drink Tequila soda that the hangover is not likely to happen that people swear by that everyone drinking soda, I think Tommy Drinks Tequila Soda I can. It's my least favorite say mixer. So Gross. Tequila or a soda. Oh, I love. Soda, water if I want to. Just get buzzed and have fun. It's biking. Vikings easy to drink, throw some grey duck and some cranberry juice. You're good. Just. Having Fun if I want to get clobbered. It's yeager Meister. Bombs if I if I feel like just A. Cruising off with the clouds as they passed by it Scotch. I can't imagine ever drinking Tequila ever. Again I mean if you WanNa get caught, tell your wife you went to the Casino, right? Yeah. Good Point. So my answer is if I'm just sitting around, not trying to get drunk but just having a drink or two. Yeah it's Margaritas. I'm drinking Tequila. All Day Long. Margaritas the. Best. Houses but if I'm trying to get hammered as you guys have seen, you guys have both Ben Drunk with me separate times. I want ten shots and forty minutes I WANNA get it over with I. Don't care what I'm drinking. Just let me shoot it. I don't want SIP anything I'm not looking for flavor I'm not looking for a nice relaxing drink. Let's get it all in my stomach. So I don't know what day it is. Exactly. Again. Again. That's yeager. Meister for the from yeah. Shots shots. Hockey is hockey for a while and maybe you still do this but. Would hockey and I wouldn't tell John on the way there. During intermission and on the way back hockey got a couple of. Cocktails where it was just yet egg and red bull are never I mean they're called liquid via yeah. That's gag shots a million times Judah right I've done. Shots are million. I never once had a yea. Cocktail hockey was the first person. I. Saw and I used to do it back in the day where you just drink it as a cocktail, you'd get a double. Still, yeah I used to say, I, used to love like here's. Fake. There's A. Well. There's a couple of reasons why I don't do meister much anymore because again like. I'M GONNA be wasting right number one but you guys know I like the cans of Hershey, Syrup? Like you put on Ice Cream. Show. That up and important the toilet. That's what it looks like on the mets. Laura. Shooting liquid it's over it's over. Yeah like. Juice, cleanse though maybe it's Like before we do eye Alaska. And at some point, we have to be honest. I. Believe from Tuesday they give you a bunch of stuff to clear out your whole system. Let's just do Yank your whole system. Whole System. Both ways? Apparently I can I could. Mike. Within a week you poop gets the. vape version. Yeah. From from a mutual friend of ours who you would, you'd be shocked but he said I, it just tell me when you want it. Now it's the I think it's a three hour high or something like that. Said I think the vape one is like a twenty minute high I thought the was four to six hours. Yeah. I thought the vape was short. Either if you. Like. If you multiple times is like extend past like twenty minutes or I don't know I, don't know anything about drugs. Just. Need a vacation. From my problems. You're here. I know. I love the steps to the toilet. Baby steps on the. Combined by the last boss. He gets off the bus in town and they cheer. The Dr Barbara. This is so unexpected. That is best bit speaking of getting hammered. Go we have postponed. Vegas Twenty Twenty until March of twenty, twenty, one, right. Push back the full year, which was the only choice we had. Right. We could move to the fall that's still moving target right? Right. I'm not trying to freak everybody out now. Booked for the march march trip because there's been a handful of cancellations I get it but almost the entire trip is still just pushing back hoping to go in the the end of March right? That's still. Seven issue. So months away. What would you say today on August sixth percent chance we go to Vegas let's say the Third Week of March twenty twenty one. I'm. Very. Confident I'm going to go eighty five percent. I'm in that range I definitely not saying one hundred you can't say one hundred at this point, right? I'm in that eighty to ninety range as well. I think there's a scenario where we don't have to push it off again but. I'm more worried about Vegas being the reason not Minnesota being raised in Vegas is in big trouble man there are a lot of places that are close aide. There are a lot of it. You know someone that recently been out there corey we all know someone that's been out there and it's literally a ghost town. And that's not good. So and and I think the governor's come out or the yeah the governor's come out and said, we're not closing again we'll just add maybe you set a court we're just going to close off the sections of it that aren't working or not. We can't afford to close again. Well, the in the big mistake for these anti massacres. The big mistake member when they opened up vegas that first weekend looked like a mosh pit and nobody had a mask on it was just a free for all. And, that wasn't the right plan. Right the plan was like a lot of places doing. Let's open up again smartly and if we can't do it smartly, you're GONNA get shot back down. Yes. So whilst ask the Marlins know, maybe what we have to do is on treated as if it is the The bubble. You know and just go to planet Hollywood and never leave Yeah. But. You. GotTa go to your favorite spot hogs llangollen. Yeah I know you are. No his fear Barman Harris Spar. Money to. Do the watermelon juice. Watermelon sugar whatever you get some of that.

This was all talk man this is your wheelhouse. Your keys act doesn't. That's not nice. Maybe there's Excuse Act, Tommy Tommy Zach Gang. So yeah I heard it on the way in.

I don't do the bubbles I just do water or or Yeah Tequila water that sounds disgusting because. You. Use picture probably like a two am warm end of the night shot.

That's right Dan is always yeah. Yeah but I didn't know it was a thing until you people in half of them are like, yeah. I'll take a Tequila soda you're like. It gets you drunk.

But I don't know I've never heard you guys talk about it but we the Catholic, churches back home would have these summer parties where they'd have abandoned they'd they'd set up to abandon their parking lot and like every church did it never small town wants a summer but you guys obviously w root beer. You have about a half a gallon. The W. Revere No uh-huh. Okay you can buy. Right it's great. It's the little have. It looks like a gallon, Jug half gallon obviously you've seen milk. The Catholic places would sell those for three dollars a piece. Full of beer and the thing is. Everybody was plastered, right? I didn't even drink yet. This is what I was a kid. But the the deal was at the end. When you got about maybe a half inch beer left, you just throw it in the air so whether you were drinking or not you were soaked with beer by the time he got home.

You want insane deal, but you just have to pick twelve. Eleven off the board. Okay. Let me look at the board today quickly though what do they tee off? they tee off here and I think about. An hour, an hour, and a half. Time then Tommy. By the time you leave Bay will have not teed off. Okay. Let me let me see. But I will do it by the end of. The TR for fifty minutes. All right. So you got an hour okay, perfect. Yeah. So right before. Basically and I'll go. I don't even know the words to describe what I felt when I. watched the Russell Wilson Video yesterday. I just. Did you. Watch Chris Yeah of course. Yeah I. Was GonNa Guess Russell here the typical boring yes. Russell. Robot. Russell the one got loved to know a real exciting. Exciting. I'M Glad everybody has to have an alter ego. I've been thinking about what my alter ego would be and I think I, have an alter ego, his name, his name's Mr Mr Mr Unlimited. You gotTa be unlimited. Thought Process of being unlimited. So when people ask you, you know what you're thinking about or what you WanNa do in life or where you WanNa go you gotTa be unlimited some. Added you know what I mean. So they ask questions like. Russell missed on there. Russell. On, NAM, it is. person. They think p Carol they think this person that person love you pete but if Tom. Craft called they want their cheese back. And you like shut up I. Don't know why that just enrages me. I it shouldn't. I shouldn't even let it who cares. So what if he's a dish but it just so weird. As she reenactor. Is this the guy that's like I, want a new nickname and I know what I wanted to be so is he trying to get us to all call him Mr Unlimited because you know people are GonNa do that now I can't wait for bed. Like who's GonNa play for him I don't know how is that your leader what if your teammate Tommy right you'll about that think of that compared to Brett fire. What's her Brady? Brady and five you know they could just go pick up any check and they're like the best leader they're gonNA have a beer with any guy the greatest guys right that. was just one of those things where. How long could you spend time with Russell Wilson before you would wanna leave like to me my time would be limited like very very. Limited? Ashley. If I I can't stand I guess I need to Know what it is weird about that video rectum fellow. Comments on Russell Wilson. Wreck described I killed them. I don't know he's trying to He's always tried tried to himself as Like. Motivational Guy who is is very within himself. humbles good word for you and that is the exact opposite of everything I. It's he you could just tell he's feeling himself a little bit right. Now man you know what the problem is whenever I get like that and and I. Everybody gets that from time to time maybe not to that extent but Karma cousin grabbed you after a while it just does man something comes into remind you you're just a regular old do no matter how much money or how great yards sports it just comes into remind you you gotTa Watch yourself but don't you think that's a sign that that's a complete lack of self-awareness right? Because my guess is he thought This might catch fire. But he has no idea. He's so out of touch with how this is going to be a hundred percent bad feedback camp right I bet he thought Oh this is going to be cool. Everybody's going to go viral people are going to call me Mr Unlimited. It's GonNa be the minute bit cell. Sure. It was almost unanimously what is this trash? It's like, this is the Internet. You should've watched it before you send did of course, everybody's GonNa. Hate it just try to try heart you're trying to hang heart forcing it just be you even more so than the Mr Unlimited stuff that the very first part of it bothers me the most because. He he actually says the one that you love you know, and it's like you're talking about yourself man and then he and then he follows it by going. I. Know you think I'm really interesting. He's even kind of admitting you think I'm boring. We'll wait until you watch the next forty five seconds. You're not gonNA think I'm boring after this real I think you're even more boring. You think I'm robotic, right? Yeah. Yeah. I even worse than I thought I thought you were cheesy and boring before this video. It's so forced I I I need to get to the point of my life where I can watch video like that and go. That was dumb and then I just move on. I'm not there yet because I wasn't why pissed me off. This is a weird thing I was born there. Too. Barely made the whole video just because I didn't care but you know it's like it's tantamount to Lebron saying I'm taking my talents, right? Right. It's like you really need to take a step back and realize you're in your own movie but everybody else is in their own as well. We're not. You're not the center of our lives. So Jim Carey was on he's been on a bunch of shows. Alaska. Weeks all a late night talk shows stern he's he's done all the shows basically promoting his book. and. I, WANNA. Do a really bad job of paraphrasing but. He basically said, he chased fame his entire life right from the second. He was old enough to understand what fame was. He's like that's what I WANNA be. That's what I WANNA do. But he said you just cannot prepare yourself for fame until you're in it. And he said that's why some people just can never handle it because you can't even explain it to be on Jim Carey's level of fame. You can't grasp it until you're air. So he said it's not like. Lebron James could look into the camera I'm taking my talents to south beach. He doesn't even understand maybe why the rest of us think that was unbelievably arrogant. He's he thinks in his head I have a whole bunch of talent. And I'm going to take it to south beach restaurants who the after you think you are right. We watch a video like just I don't think Russell understands why we all hate it I truly don't think he does which is bizarre. By the way Jim Carey's interviews. The last couple of weeks have been fascinated I. Love it Jim. Carey he's he's a little detached losing his mind a little bit. But in a very interesting way, he's Kinda getting psychedelic while being sober if that makes sense. Yeah. Has. Alternate realities and what is time and space very tricky. But he's just I think he's doing a really good job looking back at his life going like what did what just happened the last thirty years? Does he now he's got to be mid fifties right? Well and Shared the story I think he'd even with Howard but. Jean. that. He he had that he was in Hawaii with the eight when that fake missile thing came on. Everybody's phone was going to be a missile launch and he talks about how he literally thought. He had ten minutes to live and he his his answer is unbelievable. He was happy. Is like, why would I be sour about all this life spin great now? Jerry unbelievable way. Past fifty. Yeah There was a rumor for awhile. He's GonNa play the LSD guy he was. Doing it to like. Be. That guy show was Seinfield Seinfeld, Seinfeld? No. COMEDIANS Mars getting. On the first one, the first one or one of the first one of the first. Thing I saw any like weird. But I. Guys. Embraces said this and I say it every time we bring them up. He got the role of Andy Kaufman by redoing Andy Kaufman and faking a guy out who knew Andy Kaufman, his whole life. He did all the old Andy Kaufman skits put it on a screen. The guy committed man I miss Andy Goes. Yes. So do. I but that's me. That's brilliant. That's Jim. Carey man I loved Him Care Love Your Favorite Jim Carrey movie dumb and dumber not even. Myself and I read is brilliant. Eternal Sunshine spotless mind. Out a bunch of bangers but. Dumb and Dumber dumber, it's hard to. Do. Thank you. Ricky Fowler. I did that that was going to be like my sneak you. Know but I think, I'm ready for your to get back from break. KFI. Twins on the twenties powered by weeks, jewelers discover the best selection of pre owned rolexes at Weixin Jewelers.

That was twins on the twenties power by Wickson. Jewelers. Minnesota's Swiss watch experts. If you guys had to bet who you're to take. That's going to be more likely to an MVP this year. Max Cutler or Nelson Cruz. Nelson because of his age. The all story to yeah and he's Great. Stuff going on I. Don't know good question Yeah, it'll be judged though. What is your gut telling you? About and we'll ask about the golf in a minute. Okay. About the the the fact that less than a month from yesterday's announcement, we're supposed to be playing college football in the big ten. I don't get it. I tell me what you mean by that though because I I have my own I, don't get it as well. What are you might mean? Well, there's so much that goes into college football season starting in January of last year. So then there are normal in January then in February they had their workouts it got to March and everything happening. Spring Ball canceled every spring balls where you make a lot of strides with the playbook and all the young guys getting like down. So that next falls not this huge slap in the face. No Spring Ball and then you go no summer. Everyone's God. Then your number one team leader gone. Now what, and then you have a month to practice and act like everything's fine. I just I logistically I. Don't think. I, just can't. What about the fact that at least fair they'll right because everybody's in the same boat it's not like everybody's been practicing for six months and the gophers of only had a month at least everybody's on the same schedule. That's a good thing. Yeah. It just it's going to be sloppy really sloppy. What was Your Reaction Abatement though I don't blame at all I think like, why would why even think about risking if anything were to happen due to Cova like if you got sick or your like something or anything? And when you have an opportunity to change your whole family's life for the rest like for the next generations no. No doubt. That's the part though I've never understood about why big time athletes I think Christian McCaffrey did this as well? Back Out of the bowl game and they then they say I'm going to get ready for the NFL draft. Yeah. I don't want to risk it and I would say, well, then why play that year at all like the second you know your top five to ten pick? Yeah. Couldn't you just say none of the games the rest of the way matters so i. Always thought it was weird that you would play the whole season brew and now your teams depending on you for like now is when I'm going to start working on the NFL draft. So through because, I, get the draft part, right I get saying I can't risk it. I'm not knocking that part I understand that but then what was the game before that? Worth Right? Honestly, maybe like the new trend will be. If you're like on a bamboo, lsu actually has national. Championship hopes right. If you lose a game, maybe guys will start dropping then. Why wasn't sure what's the point? If I can win a natty as you. Can Win The natty I'll keep going I'm just playing for fun. I'm out I'm playing for the draft right point US I don't want to rip my idea. It's millions of dollars on the line right in that person's going to get ripped for being a bad team 'cause everybody that backs out of the bowls basically you're abandoning your friends, your teammates, your you know your brothers. I think if they really love you, they would understand you have a career you're preparing for and it just takes one. Yeah. You Rip your knee and you broke by and then it just takes one player to do it. You know just start the whole trend now just like Bateman I I know if Bateman would have been the first one ever do it but some other players are doing it so he like well the trend. Sauce Hawk, how do you feel about our bed now that he's taking a year off essentially ready for? Bed for my side because now he's he's already set. He's going to be locked in his first rounder what he needed to prove. Aster stronger and musty pulls a kraken. Games. One hundred pounds. He's going first round the comeback though is a lot of these guys who are on the Bama's all these other teams that a lot of people were like these guys aren't third or fourth round picks all the sudden there. Oh. My God their plane and it's a little bit of I'd outta sight outta mind he'll still be a first round pick but there are a lot of guys that have the opportunity to jump up because you've people forget about these guys that aren't playing specially from Minnesota piece from Bama and you're like this guy's a first round pick people. It just the way the college football works I think you're talking about the fans forgetting about Bateman NFL scouts or not GonNa Forget about Bateman sure. But there's a lot of guys that can step up now just an opportunity for somebody right but it's not but they're not gonNA fall through the cracks. Scouts aren't GonNa Forget that he exists though Yeah. I think you're right from a public perception mean teddy bear charter supposed to be the number one overall pick and one bad workout ruin the entire thing for him. So it happened and by the way hate to break this to Rashad Bateman, you can tear your acl working out right Significant injury training for the NFL draft that would be epic. Man. He might be the first wide receiver taken and PJ's got in his repertoire. The Michigan Kid was that went to Tennessee was fifth overall. Yeah. So it's he's got I mean he's a great coach in a lot of aspects but he's a great wide receivers. He's got great wide receiver pedigree these. You do. Okay Ladies and gentleman can I please have your attention or whatever? And this took a weird turn. The rockers were a wrestling tag team big in the eighties early nineties right in the prime of my watching wrestling. Stole. Liked it sure late eighty s early ninety I remember the video game. Sorry. Yeah. Yeah. Which one a lot of. Versus Wrestlemainia was a great game. Wake you could be Hollywood Hogan. If. You're younger like if you're a Zach. halverson. Brianna Tommy. You guys might remember Shawn Michaels Right. Shawn Michaels is. The heartbreak kid. Tom Michaels was a big deal much much much longer than Mardi Jannati but they were a tag team duo for a long time called the rockers. Shawn onto big things? Marty. went onto some things that I'm about to tell you. Oh, boy I forgot about the second part same. A couple of years ago he was in the news and I completely spaced on this until this morning in two thousand fourteen. He found out that he had a long lost daughter named Bianca that was two, thousand, fourteen in two, thousand, seventeen. They discovered that he wasn't her dad. So for three years though he thought, this is my daughter. He made the news years ago. When he said quote, we both held out of sex because you don't do that. But now that we ain't related from a guy side, she's bleeping hawks but she's been daughter I want to but I just can't get past that. So he made the news because he basically said for three years he thought this is my daughter. Then he realized this is my daughter. And then you wanted to hook up with her according to this story they did hook up. But it didn't work out. So they went their separate ways but he made the news because that's just bizarre. The Allen. Of Is. So here's how Mardi is back in the news. Brilliant boy. I don't get it all songs called. Pearl Jam and the choruses don't call me. Way Too high. Yikes. I wonder if he did. Daddy likes the. Daughter by. Chance. Picture kept will remind me. Zach. MARDI NETTIE IS BACK Mardi doesn't WanNA known as a guy that banged his daughter, right? He wants to be known as a murderer. Oh interesting.

Four months to think of that. Well that's what I was Gonna I was going to go down the really don't just think about it and put it the statement out there is like, do it do it make the announcement like that's what we're doing here work for the NHL to work for the NBA and when it comes down to the playoff teams obviously, it's it's a smaller amount of teams.

What did you see this video during the break? There is A. Himalayan. Track she was so.

Hockey you have been on fire because I wrote this down Corey said where's Togo and says an issue Thank you. Thank you very much. The press conference. is going to knock the rust off guys. We knocked the rust. Wasn't great. At all over yours great mine were hideous core core. That's cool. That's cool. Like when he does, it does if we're looking at game film now, we're just talking about it. Yeah.

Get this thing he's good very. Often So. Currently are really. Cory. Cory. You said you loved playing in both in currently said no surprise there. Fan for two more. Just wrote the car was on fire Tuesday literally laugh the entire time so she really is. Responding to. But then the last one I said, don't forget about me versus wonderwall was literally the toughest. Of all time it was I come. And what do you think? We'll play the two songs. The dual the decades but we had a nineteen, eighty, five versus nine, hundred, five rock chart debate and I think the fun they were both number four. Number four from nineteen eighty five was simple minds don't forget about me. Just. Breakfast club the whole grates on. China, one year wonder right terrific terrific servings versus. wonderwall. See, I'm going to go away basis. We did. Everyone did it was a sweet I? said it was always his by a nose though I mean to me that's how I love both songs so much. I guess I don't think it's as close for me personally when I when I hear this that guitar right when it opens up, it's like, oh Claim and just because the movie you think that's probably A. Huge part of it I think that's the thing about the the about music, the dual of the decades and itself is you have to take everything into. Consideration, right Why do you love the song? It doesn't matter but you do. Yes right now the end the breakfast club, right? Yeah. But that's the reason I. Love this song you told me what matters yeah it's a cool thing, right? Has. Yeah. Yeah. Well that's it. Guys I. Love You know. What did I have today at a different than. Twins over under. The under that's right I feel pretty good about that. Bad. News, the fifty one you underwrite. Tommy's. That one more hey it's going to be. I tell you the best dude more. Headlines o'clock hour minor surprise at eight forty. This is the power jimbohannonshow on the fan because. Man. Good morning everybody I, by the way somebody sent me a tweet and you you mentioned wonderwall is what does it mean a lot of different definitions? But simply wonderwall referred to that song is somebody you find yourself thinking about constantly and you're completely infatuated with. She's my wonder law, but if you have three. There your wonder walls. Congratulations Keri Russell Kate up in an elastic girl. Someone who is the reason for your happiness your soulmate a forever love going. Talking right now. Confirmed Confirms Rosen's wonderwall this listen I was I've been watching Perry Mason and. Your Guy Matt Reese Reese who's married process a bitch. Taxi mentioned that the other because like A. Many shows I've seen him in not many while he was in Mister Rogers neighborhood right played the reporter right he's done a lot of stuff now and I've been Google this guy. And so I've been locked into it. This is the season finale Sunday night and I went oh, I know who this guy is. Again, a Guy Cory cove absolutely hates. Hustle. Love him at the same time as he was. Awesome. Is Philip. Jennings on the Americans and get lost Americans Apple. One best actor at the EMMYS for drama right? This is the. The Don Draper, the Walter White Tony Soprano like he found via ward. Is Great as Matthew Reese was on the Americans I think Kerry was even one notch. Better right. You guys are grind I. Agree she was better and she never once you got nominated but never won. And I don't know who she was going against. Obviously, I don't remember all that but I didn't watch all effort every episode the we didn't finish it but we watched event we watched a good chunk of it and I think I remember telling you corey that like she's amazing. Amazing. I know that he's getting a lot of attention but the different roles and characters that she has to take on is equally I mean if anything I would say they should be equally right respected for the roles that they had and the characters that they played correct I'd love to have a brain that could do that. You know what I? Like. To be an actor would be so cool to be able to assume the identities of thousands of people in different types of people what a great thing I heard Ethan Hawke talked about this on the Ted talk and he's like. A small way I've lived a million lives I've been a gambler and a politician in a band I be. You know it's like if you're in have a brain that can literally insinuate yourself into that role and become that person what a great thing and truly let go right? Yeah. Not Not mentally go on Hawkin being such and such where you temporarily I think like the great method actors. Daniel. day-lewis that person for a year. Some of that's annoying. But I mean that's our right avid brakes character incredible. Yeah. That was that was the same thing when what's his face play dummy? Why? So he was always Tommy why didn't that's probably smarter because when you're that crazy. I think going between James, Franco and Tommy Wise I. Think you would kind of the momentum you gotTa. Live Lifetime Wiesel into do as well as Franko didn't that right? Do you ever see that the disaster? was. Over, you're saying Ben I'm sorry but had a point. It's fine I'll. Say like a couple of things just. Now. That have gotten older appreciate actors and acting whatever and and and being around film, and all that stuff is just a an older person outs like a lot of these actors that you're talking about how how like well researched they are. They don't just read a script and say, Hey, you're going gonNA play this this period guy whatever and and This is the setting and whatever and like okay, they just take it off the script the read books they watch other movies and watch anybody else that depicted this person they jump right into that whole historic apiece. So they learn everything about it and then the other part of it is. The they are vulnerable because they feel safe is is my estimation mine if you are allowed and you're giving permission to play this character and be this character for six months or two for year. It'd be a lot different if if you're dislike that person in society like you'd be a crazy, that's a great point. It'd be a crazy person if you walk around and say like I'm I'm Batman and be like you're not because you're walking the street in central park whatever. But if you're in this in this world and they've and film created this world when you're on set. The, you need. You need to be that guy like you have our permission to be that guy and no one's gonNA judge you for being that guy even if you're offset because we understand the craft and we understand there's a, there's a Lotta great stories about actors who never broke from character one I'm looking at Saas here thinking about Jim Carey playing Andy Kaufman the and he. Drives a crew crazy because he never ever even when there's okay cut and then he would still be Tony Clifton only Clifton. Yeah. I'm an A-hole that direct hogs he was. In. The people look okay. We get work. We're not working right now than matter did matter he's always a lot of if then yeah what's what's Your Perry Mason Review? Because I haven't heard? Talking to buy into it more and more in a matrix. This is the season finale this week it's such a fast. Yes. Seventy seven, it's built slowly. Kind of the company it's it's a rugged and I think it's early thirties not even earlier was a world war one hero in the in the show not you're not the Perry Mason that I grew up with I mean, he's he's the shoveled most of the time. You know drinks he's he's a Kraus's, but he kinda fallen into this role as being the lead prosecutor. Now in this in this murder case for two year old baby and and so he's trying he knows who did it but he's got prove it now, and this is what it's coming to an unknown on Sunday night and it's pretty pretty fascinating pretty gritty charts tweet about. It the other day say has anybody watched Perry Mason and the responses were all. It starts very slowly very slowly. But almost everybody said the building worth it that it's building up and it's getting to where is going there are a couple of shows I went. Okay. That's the key though right slow burns or fine if the off is worth it well, unless you're peeing watch. Slow, burn, of all time. The worst slow burn of all time is true detective season two. Buildings building alone. Then, it was really, it didn't go anywhere. They're wasted eight hours of my life. So brilliant and watching the golden say killer de did you finish it all? Yeah. Yeah. It's and it's really more about Michelle Mash McNamara's life and unfortunate again, there's a thing to and it's not a spoiler that could be no Patton. Oswald's wife died before she finished the book. But he was arrested was disturbed. About was the fact that you know she had she accidental overdose with Xanax adderall and Fenton Oh. Yeah and I'm thinking to myself they kind of I. Don't think they brushed over but wait on the hell that she gets fed. It was at that. So many prescribed this for because it's so lethal. With Princeton situation and so many many many many others. But the didn't the you watch it. Honestly they glossed over. Forgot that or did not I didn't know sauce. You told me that the other day I. Always just thought she died of cancer. No. I didn't know that until saw said it's either just assumed it was something like cancer we as read the book and we know that. She was like Whoa I. Think and whatever this is just my opinion. I think they skate over at a tad because. I. Don't know if they want their seven or eight year old to no I don't. Yeah. I mean they have the Rams I'm not saying there shouldn't have in the deep. Point over at the same time, it's very jarring because panels will say, well, you know she got I have to take this much sleeping well, because he's worrying about the book and she's trying to solve the case and yeah, and you know you take combination of things with the federal law when. She do a upper at night, right? Yeah. But the the unbalanced karagic. Morning at night and the COM-. The combination of ended up being -Ly man nothing you had to pay off at the end Holi Yay. But Rosie, and I've talked about it off the air. Yeah it's a tough ass watchman. It is the destruction he caused and all the other things that you had no idea he was tied to and when the pieces start to finally come together, it's a tough watchman it's not you're gonna but it's also more about the process about what it was like from the standpoint of putting this book together I mean and and what she was going through her crew was going through in this relentless pursuit of not just writing this book but trying to solve the. Time. She was ahead of the detectives in many ways she then at all kind of you know again. News. Presented by. says. A weird week for the vikes Ben Lieber the Vikings traded with the Vegas Raiders to get PJ Hall. A second round hasn't worked out for Oakland, right to maybe replace Michael Pierce or at least help fill that void. With the Michael Pierce, opt out but he fails his physical. So he goes back to the raiders in the raiders did release in which they were going to do before they found a trade partner at the Vikings. Anyway. We found a conditional seventh round or forum, but the trade falls through what weird week what do you think happens to PJ hall now in Any idea why or how we failed this physical? No idea why he felt the physical but. You know just like the Matthew Stafford stuff nothing is no no health conditions or anything related to your personal health is ever secret even though fell supposed to be abiding by all the hippo laws. So it'll get the word will get around why he why he failed it could be a past injury that didn't heal. It could just out of shape you know it could be any variety of things that. The Vikings if they brought him in and said. Yeah, we don't this. This is not the product we thought we were GonNa get you know if you if you unpackaged box, you order from something and you're like Oh this is the wrong size or wherever a Lotta Times teams will be like it's a generality say like failure fiscal like it doesn't have to be an actual issue. It's just we're not comfortable anymore. So I think we should just be like. You know maybe not now I don't think that they did that I'm just saying that right I got Gotcha because they would have done their due diligence and they that's the reason why the treatise seventh round pick but the point is. Something, about his his body they didn't they didn't think was there felt they felt comfortable bringing them into camp and and put him on the roster the dream dead right like now that the vegas writers have released him, it's not like the Vikings are GonNa call him again and go well now you can come back or is this a situation where maybe two weeks from now they said get your ass in shape and maybe we'll bring you back in. It's possible that that happens to okay you know and and it could be the incentive of it lend. Let's go with the theory that he was just out of shape. Well, if he's out of shape he could go back. Obviously he's gotTa feel humbled that that the raiders cut him. Now he's a free agent, and now he's he's wandering and if you really cares about football and that's the thing maybe that's they wanna see the motivation like you lost the motivation during the pandemic Now, if you lost the motivation as a as a true player and you're no longer associated with the team. If that sparks something in you. You lose the weight we really evaluate in two or three weeks you got starting experience You know I I have been told that he's he's one of those guys that sounds derogatory and whatever. But a lot. He's one of these guys that looks like Tarzan plays like Jane. You know and that was sort of the consensus of him coming out of college, and that's typical what the raiders like. That's why they're took him as a second rounder they love guys that contest they love guys at physically look strong they like it doesn't matter what your production was in college. If you ran a four to five, they're going to draft you you know and so it's no surprise that the raiders would pick him up and then they realized maybe not the player that we thought he was in. So you. Know maybe whatever this the issue is, it's not completely closed on him. It sounds like it's more under his control and his own destiny whether or not. He wants to be a player in this league. The perfect example of that has been as in two thousand nineteen when they took clown feral number four overall and no one thought he'd go that high right but he tested well and he had the think he played well in the championship game but that's or if you're from Clemson, they take any well, they say A. Quick, this is kind of bike related. The will savannah another. Sports team to their arsenal to this. No No. No. They have. The Minnesota Rocker, right that's the call of duty team that the wolf zone? They added a new team called version one. That will play in the Rocket League Championship series starting tomorrow the Wolf's own a rocket league team, hell. Yeah. What does this mean I'm doing surrogate league is the best honestly I freaking. Love it. So. Money involved yet. Also, the reason why they're doing is they're saying call of duty guns and shooting. Annoyed. So, they're saying Rocky League is in Iranian. It's for general audiences, yours more advertising money because they can market to all age groups and say come watch us on twitter and it's not you don't have to explain to a parent why their kids watching guns being shot. So Rocky League is cars playing soccer. It's safer five-year-old's to watching ninety to watch so they're diving end. SMART. The wolves are all in on these sports and I think they're smart Corey I'm I'm normally when it comes to stuff like this I think we're pretty sabbatical. Sure. You Know I. If you say you like movie, I'm probably GonNa like what? I don't understand how you love rocket Zona Stone I can't I can't get it out a handful. Okay. It's so much fun. It's Ok now and obviously I'm the one that is in the minority here because they have a freaking league for it. Obviously, it's hugely popular and I remember buying the game at best buy in the. The sales guy was like. If you're going to get any game. You GotTa get this game I. Go with this was this games like it sounds really cheesy. It's just soccer, but you play with cars. Like the kids love it, I'm like A. This is hands down the game that you know when the call of Duty League was coming through. That's kind of cool I'm glad it's a big crowd, but I don't know if I could watch a game that I don't understand if ESPN runs the rocket league world championships, I'm watching it.

I forgot we haven't We've done this with Ben yet. And Ben I'M GONNA. Play fifty eight seconds of audio, and then you're going to respond ready yet ready. This is Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Yes, the typical boring literally tickets headphones on. You. Why he's Heard the whole thing. All right. Here, I saw like ten seconds of it and I did exactly what Bendix headed when I'm at listening to the. Sea Hawks quarterback Russell Mr Unlimited Wilson. Russell here. Yes. The typical boring. Yes. Russell robot. Russell one got loved to know real exciting. EXCITING BUT ANYWAY Everybody, has have ultra ego. I've been thinking about what my alter ego would be and I think I have an alter ego, his name, his Mr Mr Mr. Limited you gotTA. Be Unlimited gotta thought process of being on the limited. So when people ask you, you know what you're thinking about her, what you WanNa do in life where you WanNa go you gotTa be unlimited some online limited. With Asi certain questions like. Mr Lamb. Was Your own. On Nam it is. You. They think p Carol they think this person that person love you pete but missed it. Limited Tom can you like shut up? Oh, my God. I didn't know it was that bad you know that. Didn't mention this an hour and a half ago when we talked about, it think about those last three questions. WHO. Do you go to for advice? WHO's your motivation? Right? He basically says. It's exactly what he's All your hands up before Ben? Explodes like Yosemite Sam. Just, GonNa, lead into that Ben your thoughts. Get your more mad than I was I was pissed about this. I'm really torn. I'm really torn. Okay. Because because. I want the world I, WanNa, go to the highest mountain and shout this, and I want to play these fifty eight seconds for everybody to hear it because I just think it's the do she s thing that's ever been done. Okay. But. I also don't want to give them the attention because. I don't want like I. Don't even want him even in a cold funny way to get the attention for how dumb this is. You know what I'm saying like. I want everybody to see because I want him to to be put on blast for how dummy is that you want no one but I want you know you know. I'm torn. You get the sense that that was like take one and that he just did it or do you think like you know maybe I should. Pressure this up a little bit now sounded like it was just I take. This is the way because he struggled at the beginning. Both the robot thing sounded like well, why any stop and start over again and clarify that and we on Russell Wilson maybe you think of me as being robotic and Blah just eases we do he yes but it just stumbled over all it. That's what I thought this the first the only take he did you don't tell Mr Unlimited that you need another issue don't because he's on. The. Whole. Process from start to. It's not It's not so much. It is the fifty eight seconds that he actually publicly shared with everybody, but it's also the thought process and the brainstorming that went in before it and he and his wife who now I've lost respect for. thinking. that. Maybe, alter ego for the last year or two years whatever and now he's just talking about it publicly. But how they thought okay. This is how we're GONNA do this video and then you and the distance can be like. Commission. So. Donna. This is a guy that's trying to give himself hook name. I feel so bad for I I feel bad for him because. He clearly doesn't have. A voice in the household that will keep him in check either I mean if there's one thing that that I love about my wife from the day that I met her. She she has no problem saying you're being a complete deuce back That's a great point you what are you doing? My wife does. and. It doesn't matter and sometimes it all the time. Sometimes it gets tiresome because she'll to look at what I'm wearing. She's like you're not really gonNA where they're going on public with that and I'm like, okay like she's like those shoes are terrible like like you should burn those shoes a long time ago. Okay. I thought there are sweet. No No, you need never wear those again. You say or you say Abbey you know who wears these shoes Ben's not wearing them. And it goes far beyond just like whatever you know. So she has no problem criticizing me and keeping me in check in them and obviously he's being enabled at home with his behavior and that's I think the grocer part one thing to be a self motivator to to have this sort of sing song you way of describing it I mean this is not. I was not meant to motivate other people to be, Hey, get up in the. And look in the mirror and go out the old kind of Al Franken store good or not good enough. S. Yeah. I truly think this is the guy trying to give himself a cool nickname and that's not how it we're well might be not how it works. Go to think of the. I'm sorry I'm saucy but. What would we be saying and I know the answer but I'm going to say it anyway. He's our quarterback I know where you're going now what if Kirk? Kirk. Say the same thing. I've heard Kirk what are you doing? Because, more self defense point he is somebody who would check him on that Yeah. What a disaster he is but even when Kirk got ripped for for wearing socks with flip flops a week ago he said, he even say like yeah, my wife was like you should never do they don't ever do that right so. She saying he's like at doesn't matter and it really in the grand scheme like it. Of course, it doesn't. It doesn't marry. Right but he knows it's like he's self aware enough to know that he's going to get ripped for it. Russell didn't know he was going to get rid for it I. I heard you earlier. He thought he was going to release this video every damn man unlimited a so powerful. Cool but share the singer around the world because this got me hyped up I'm such a Russell Wilson Fan it. It was one hundred percent of the opposite. His teammates field. That's. The question early. But how do you think they know this? All Known that. Long Tie I have known for years that he's a complete dork inside the. But but nobody's GonNa rip them because he's a winning quarterback. Reforms. Well, me who wouldn't want him to be your starting quarterback, but you gotta deal with the guy that is is that guy? Outside. Outside of off the field looks like a lot of fun to hang. Wow. Just check when you go to Red Robin you get steak fries. There Unlimited Alley think of another quarterback of do anything like that. I. Ask. Please why God? Name. I'm not saying put out a video. Dorky quarterbacks that get that that get the the the quote unquote leadership or the captain see in Erbil turn on me like. You hate quarterbacks still. Do. We have a human condition thing like you can see frauds for a mile away like. You meet like. Supposed Stars of a team and you're like. Your? Tool like I can't believe how much I don't want ever hang out with you. I think the difference between Kirk and Russell is. Kirk cousins of a tool but they love Kirk. I think a lot of the guys in Seattle are like. It's Not The right word he is I think Kirk is kind of a door but I think he knows self aware self aware the zenit nervous all. Her. Not trying to be cool. He embraces like, yeah. I'm kind of Dorky. Guy. Russell thinks he's cool. Yeah. The door right and he's a Dork but he's trying to trying trying to win over anybody with like look how cool I am basically yeah. It were software lops I'm not that cool I. Don't I'm just here to play your dad who plays football that's that self-awareness also thinks he's Cool so cool. He needs to be two people man. I don't like the first one. I. Definitely. Don't WanNa meet Mr Unlimited. No I to meet MRS incredibly wrestling. Tom Brady would put out something like this. He said look we know that all athletes have some sort of jekyll and Hyde alter ego right and I and I think most people in general. Do you know they? They have this persona that they had but they also have this person they Kinda WanNa be at least in football at least in you know we talked about acting you can kind of. You have the ability to be that person and let that person cannot Tom Brady be.
