Reeling Texans Hire David Culley as Head Coach
"I joining us now. Dan were grateful all this crazy news. He's nfl network. Insider are insider here on the shots house ratio rap sheet on twitter. Join syrian rap. Forty and. Welcome in against great to have your. Let me start by saying not. Well you everything and nothing. Unfortunately we'll get to david kelley in a second but he's having his introductory press conference today in town mcnair and jack easterby are not showing up right y because nicosia aerial runs football operations. And make sure it will be sitting there with david kelly to answer questions And my guess is based on my understanding of the texans situation that is going to continue You know obviously jack. Easterby has not to my knowledge of lease stunning interview since he has been in houston. His role has changed dramatically over that time to hear from him. And i assume that we will. I just don't know that it's going to be any time soon But honestly like for a good franchise. This is the way it should be. You know when you have major football decisions you should be hearing from the person in charge of football and that nick caserio And i expect him to take the reigns and run with it both today And in the future. Nick should be their social cal. So so is this normal. I mean when's the last time. An owner of some sort wasn't in a press conference for a new coach. Sixty five years old getting his first chance on a franchise. It's in disarray. Why wouldn't the owner show up and and put his arm around him and show support I think because this is. I wanna say this is not me from sources. This is just speculating. Right anything of the situation You know the comic neighbors there for the higher of 'cause cereal. He essentially appointed nick kishiro to run football and now that they've made the most significant football decision under knicks regime. He is going to be the one answering questions. Is it normal It's about half and half. I would say sometimes. The owner is there during press conferences to announce the coach. Sometimes they are not this situation. Obviously a little different. Because you know there's controversy and the owner is very involved in it right like caused it really So you know having him there. Answer questions i think would for those of us me included. Who'd like to hear from him. I wish he was there I'm not sure it helps the organization so muddy things up and from someone who was clearly not comfortable in front of the camera. not good at it I'm sure there'll be a time when he will answer questions. I'm not sure how it helps anyone. Deliver clear message with him being there entering questions about it today.

Callum mcnair and jackie's to be or is it something else on the sun maybe organizational deal nick caserio. Mostly he would be to make that call what. He thinks his his power contract.

What Would It Take To Get Deshaun Watson to the Patriots From Houston?
"What would it take to get the Sean Watson? A complete meltdown on the situation in Houston. I just think I think the the odds are very low that extremely low that Nick Acero his first big move in Houston is going to be trade DeShaun Watson. Who's one of the few bright spots on that roster. He's tremendous it would yeah. I mean it was it would basically have to get to a situation where Watson doesn't want to show up. I think I think this area is going to sit down with him and his agent I think they're going to reason he's going to explain why he's not just a continuation of Easter be you know, Brian and things like that. I think Nick can be persuasive. But one thing I would like to see Nick is I would love to see DeSean DeShaun Watson go to Cal McNair and say it's either me or Jack easterby to see what McNair would say cuz I don't know what he would say, but it would certainly be interesting and I'm off.

Houston Texans Fire Bill O'Brien as Head Coach
"Texans owner cal McNair has fired bill. O'Brien as coach in GM as of Monday afternoon the. HOUSTON, Texans are on a winless start to the season and. There have been some really questionable trades and other. Moves that Bill O'Brien has made or not made to improve this football team. I think unfortunately, the McNair family who owns the the Houston Texans I think they're seeing a window that is remaining open for a championship as you have to Shawn Watson a very exciting quarterback and you know you've invested on the offensive line, but you got rid of his best weapon in De'andre Hopkins and. Shed some other players Bill Brian is ruffled feathers of players in the past. If. You remember seeing this team on. or seeing Bill O'Brien on hard knocks. He's got kind of a mouth on him and you know it. It fires people up for sure but it also can work against him. Rub some people the wrong way and you know I think it was time for the at least the Texans felt it was time for them to move on but that's that's two vacancies in one their. Head coach and GM. more details to emerge there but that look I mean we can criticize the Bengals in what they've done. Really. Houston's been pretty successful. They've made a lot of at a lot of playoff appearances and they beat the Bengals a couple of times in the playoffs in the Andy Dalton era. So I understand that there's a little bit of envy there but for right now and how They hit what some of the moves they have made of late is really got to be called into question and. You know. Bill Brian now because of those controversial decisions is now out of a job,
Big Ten football still waiting on final decision after presidents meet
"Next topic has to do it is the big 10 going to come back this season? Better late than never met, shaking Byron Metcalf Sunday morning got ESPN radio, the DSP adapt and serious sex and channel 80 thrill that have on Heather Ditch, ESPN college football playoff end college football reporter as well. So Heather yesterday the games were almost a secondary topic to what was going on on social media with regards to the Big 10 and perhaps a vote coming as soon as today about returning to play. What is the latest give us much background as you can. For those that are kind of in the dark on why the big 10 might be coming back soon. Sure so on Saturday, the athletic directors and doctors who comprise a medical sub committee of the Big Ten's return to competition task force Presented a lot of medical information to eight presidents and chancellors. Who are another subcommittee, right? You need a flow chart for all this stuff, has subcommittee So basically a bunch of athletic directors and doctors presented a lot of medical information to part of the presidents and chancellors, which are essentially like a buffer group right and it went very well from what sources have told us. So now that's kind of the first step. Now. Today everyone meets guys. I would love to be on this new meeting because it's like everyone in the big 10 is going to be on it. Except for the coaches. It's all Of their doctors off their sub committees and all 14 presidents and chancellors, And today they moved beyond just the medical piece and they start to look at. How do you actually return? When do you return? And what are the medical benchmarks needed that each team has to pass to actually get back on the field. So they have looked at at least four rapid and engine testing models that weren't there previously weren't available when they last decided to postpone the season. And now they've got a look at some dates, right? Some more substantial information in terms of logistics, as when do you get back? Mid October late October. What is all that look like now? Whether or not they actually vote? Nobody has any idea. Even those presidents, right? Yes, they can vote, and if they do vote, they need at least nine of them to agree to return. According to the big tent by law, and that means that six of those presidents and chancellors would have to change their minds from their original vote in August. To postpone. Maybe they don't vote. I think there's a certainly a good possibility. They don't Maybe they push it to tomorrow. Maybe they have more questions. We're talking about university president here. There's no telling what they might do, and even they don't know, but they certainly could vote. Magic Meyer Metcalf Sunday morning on ESPN radio. There is some sort of clicking noise on the end of their phones. So whether we want to call you back to make sure that we can hear everything you're saying clearly we picked up everything there. And I think the bottom line is my right. There are a lot of subcommittees. A lot of tax forces. There are a lot of people talking and maybe because of all that, maybe finally, the right people are going to be talking to each other today for the first time, or at least in the last 20 for the next 24 hours. Communication's been the biggest thing right at the end of the day. What people have been saying from day one is can you tell us exactly what happened? The process was there of all. What was the vote? Can you give us information? And perhaps the big 10 has reached that point where they are sharing information with the proper folks. I wanted this to medicine that feels like me to me. This is it? I mean, if you vote today, whatever this weekend and you come out, saying, we're not playing, that could mean you're not playing all year in my pin because we have no guarantees in January or anything like that. So this feels like perhaps the last chance. To get football going in the big team. All right, So we got Heather damage back. So, Heather on the heels of what you just said, and they're gonna have another vote sometimes soon. My question has to do with the fact that they're gonna have to have six presidents change their votes. Now, if the president's If they change their votes do they have to play like in a sense? Could Rutgers say yes, will agree that we can return to play But we are not going to play personally. Is that something that could happen? Yes, Absolutely. And I think that's a very good possibility. Maybe they come out of this and unanimously say Okay, we all agree. If you want to return you can, but we're not going, Teo. The question then becomes How many teams do you need to play? What's that line? Right Where you say, Okay, We don't have enough or all right. We can continue without the two of you. I mean, remember Michigan and Michigan State has presidents who are at an epidemiologist and an infectious disease expert. So there's a very real possibility that Michigan Michigan State Rutgers I mean, here in here in Maryland, where there's no margin for error with any soon, Nathalie tells after what happened with Georgia McNair two years ago, I would be surprised if Maryland Voted in favor of that their president. I can't say that for sure. I'm just taking an educated guess here, But you have to consider that each university is different under different leadership with different scenarios, and we heard how strongly Rutgers president earlier this week called Donald Trump's involvement in the politics. That was his phrase, he said, I'm not going to change my vote based on political interference in this So every president has their own thoughts on this, But yes to answer your question. It's certainly possible that they agree to play in some school say thanks not for us. None of this makes sense to me unless there's some attachment to the college football playoff. What are the chances that The big 10 could still participate in that if they make a decision here today. I think it's a good possibility, and it's the timing of it is what's critical. If you're talking about mid to late October. It's certainly possible for them to get in at least an eight game conference schedule. And have their conference championship game. December 19th and selection day for the playoffs is December 20th. So that is a very realistic possibility. And everybody in the country knows Ohio State is a good enough team. To be part of that conversation. The question is do the three other commissioners who are already playing Probably in the big 12 John Swofford in the Sea. And Gregg. Thank you and the SEC. Do they go for that? I think they would. I genuinely think that they would But once you get past that October resumed a then it gets really tricky unless realistic.

"On the list of history's great explorers too often, the names of black men and women have gone missing. Yet weather, striking out on their own or accompanying others. Black explorers and left their mark on land and sea. In even in space. In Fifteen, twenty eight. And African named Esteban was brought to Florida as a slave by Spanish conquistadors. When their expedition fail. The survivors explored the American southwest on foot for almost a decade. Esteban travel well over fifteen thousand miles. He saw Moore of the continent than almost any other people before. Listen incompetent. About four centuries later. Another African American explore. Would be one of the first Westerners to reach the far end of planet earth. Matthew Henson spent most of his adolescence at sea learning how to be a sailor. He was also quite interested in exploration, and found himself connected to Admiral Perry. Who is interested in finding North Pole? Hinson travels with him and they've made to the North Pole. Hinson had incredible skills and was recognized for those skills far later than Perry was. In the twentieth century black. Pioneers boldly explored even more daunting frontiers. In the nineteen eighties, the space program was very popular with the American people, and it became clear that there were no African Americans in the astronaut corps, so there was a push to recruit African Americans and in Nineteen, ninety-three guy in blue for became the first. African American to go into space. The second was Ronald McNair. Flew as a mission specialist in nineteen eighty-four. McNair even played his saxophone onboard. Sadly He died tragically two years later when the Challenger exploded shortly after takeoff. In Nineteen ninety-two another African American astronaut made history. It'll be making her first trip in space today and she's ready to fly. Mae Jemison spent more than a week orbiting Earth becoming the first African American woman in space. The Astronaut Corps something that Swiss considered quite a leap. These three African Americans were accomplished scientists and engineers they had passed through quite a rigorous set of assessments to become the first of their race to go into a place where your skills your intelligence, your courage and your commitment were all that mattered not erase. Contrary to what most of US learned in school? Not all great explorers were white men. These bowl pioneers were only a few of the African. Americans who overcame unimaginable odds and push forward. The boundaries of what is possible for black people.
Ronald Reagan's Address to Nation on the Challenger
"Our. I fire nation. Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God. Thank you
Vic Syracuse Homebuilt Aircraft Council Chairman discusses the 2020 EAA/FAA Recreational Aviation Summit
"Don't you tell me a little bit more about What goes on in the summit victim. Tell us about what? Your role is so One I'm just honored to be there. A nice time. Didn't accused me of making the meeting any longer than it needed to be so. Thanks Tom. Absolutely the exciting thing is that I see over past three or four years this absolute willingness for the FAA to listen to the EA leadership to him on on very important things that are affecting our membership things right down to operating limitations for amateur built airplanes at top of mind for our members out there these days and actually work with the people that Right those up and allow us to do input and make changes. It does seem to me to be to be powerful and is it. Would you both say it's unusual That that we're we're sort of able to to get the FAA to come to us and sit down and have these These face to face meetings. It seems like when you consider a typical Something more akin to a lobbying scenario. Think while you go to Washington and the Obama the doors till somebody listens but they come here and sit down. Sit Down with us for two three days and the fact that they come here when it's eight degrees outside on purpose so that they can so that there are other bosses. Can't say that they're on some kind of junket you know to Vegas or something but But how I think One of one of the strengths. Ca Has the other alphabet organizations. Do a ton of of really great work and they're in DC Obviously base there on a regular basis and and we do have representation there ourselves with Doug McNair But one of a uniqueness that is our strength that he a is that we're not in DC. Were here in Oshkosh. Which means that when we want to have one of these kind of touch points. They come onto our turf meetings. It really is kind of an event And it's done in kind of this. This concentrated way of day and a half meeting where they hop on flights and come into To Wisconsin in February. We put together a full day. And a half agenda with you. Know with briefing papers in a in a fully. We work on this for months in advance. Getting getting all this ready and then we also have all of the All of the the leads in the same room so it doesn't matter if we're talking about airport policy or for talking about flight safety or for talking about Operating limitations for amateur built aircraft. Everybody whether they have a hand in it or not is around. The table offering their views on it. And particularly for the interdisciplinary topics. You know things like mosaic giant rulemaking project. It's great to you. Know not necessarily be in the office of one particular department but have those folks come to us and in all bear on the conference. Table Now vic. We're looking BACK SUMMIT AS WE'RE RECORDING. His has just concluded correct. We've just wrapped up Vick. Was there you mentioned operating limitations? Were were there any other particular. Highlights this at this year for you. Yeah the NEAT thing about the last day and a half as Tom said we've got the real people here who can actually listen and then say yeah. We can change that as opposed to thank you for your input. We're GONNA go back and see what can be done and that ranged everywhere from talking about grass field operations which was kind of a minor knit all the way up to future policies. That may be coming out in the next four or five years at are actually going to change you know. Have a real good impact. I think very positively on amateur built aviation so it's everything from fixing things to policy making out in the future and we've got the leadership of both sides in the room a green on. What's going to happen? That really is it really is terrific and I You know when you go back through our magazine Archives Or you think back I personally think about conversations with Paul Right when I started here. when he founded the organization That was that was a core philosophy from the beginning is is you know. We're not gonNA just sit here and fold our arms and you know and grouse about the bureaucrats in Oklahoma City. You know we're going to figure out how to work with them and how to educate them And you know I certainly. We don't get every single thing we want but but we've had some. We've had some enjoyable successes over the years and I think I think members should be proud of the strong working relationship that we have with the FAA. Yea I I I would add just a little bit to that. How and you're dead on. I call it. I've actually When I speak to the Holmdale Council and even family members and fellow pilots when I go back the collaborative atmosphere. Yeah that is in this room and all the meetings that I've had the honor of participation with is totally different than most pilots perception of the FAA chur. I mean they are there to actually they have the same objective that we have in mind in that to Promote aviation not figure out a way to stifle it and there aren't any US in they conversations in in this room this meeting ever the first time I was there. It was amazing to me and it just keeps repeating year after year and actually we do it twice a year and they always take things back and act upon them and come back and tell us why they can't as you know We do. Have we do report to a congress and but most of the time in jail we we can fix this or we can change. That is very very collaborative. This is our fourteenth winter summit this year. So you know There every year we get high level executives. I mean literally somebody who reports to somebody who reports to the FAA administrator You know that's that's the level of executives that were getting at these meetings. I mean these are people who don't just have oversight of General Aviation. They have oversight of Commercial Aviation which is obviously a Not The not the most comfortable assignment right now at the seventy seven Max issues going on in other things And they take the time to come to Oshkosh again in February. When it's eight because they WANNA come here come here. They want to To do positive things for general aviation and hear what the stakeholders have to say So I think it's As as my boss Sean says always says it's ours to lose you know we. We have to continually Present a productive agenda for them But we are of A. We're just very humbled by the By by the the willingness of these guys to to work with. Us So closely. It really is. That really is something remarkable and I it it does appear to be pretty Pretty Unique
Update and YOUR emails.
"Hello hi welcome. It's another episode episode of the gun show and another mini episode. It's so good to be sharing this time with you. I thought in this episode. I would just do a little bit of catching up really because there's been an awful lot of feedback on the last few episodes and I wanted to read out some messages that I've had from people and also talk about in particular the episode on weight and body image because that really degenerate an awful lot of interest. So let's start with the most recent batch of incoming message from you my most excellent listeners. A lot in response to Venetia lemonade coming on the show and talking about fast fashion. We did talk about a lot not just fast. Fashion we talked about digital detox is meditation and Mental Health and also the exciting ourselves so that we're not not constantly in a state of who which which is my visual representation over excitement policies that Liz. I don't know what came over me but when when we talk about fast fashion it did generate a lot of interest in as I said at the beginning of the pope cost. I know I am ignorant about this subject and yet I am complicit in a problem and therefore I'm very happy to be the person who stands up and says do you know what I know McNair about this. I know I don't know enough but I really do want to all myself with the knowledge that I can and act accordingly moving forward and it seems as though a lot of feel the same way and Lord of you shared a similar feeling and that was the feedback that I got from you. I had one really lovely message from somebody saying just a small native appreciation for your podcast. I really enjoy your honesty and your willingness to dictate into issues that trouble so many individuals you lost episode was especially I opening for me. I've been interested in slow ethical fashion for a while now as I've had a strong interest in corporate social responsibility as it relates to the fashion industry industry. I generally believe is good for business if they if they behave responsibly. And it's a corporations responsibility to ensure they behave ethically across the supply chain. Furthermore Oh as a human I care about people believe we all must have a safe place to work. However I've also thought that maybe these individuals in developing countries may not have access to employment other than working within a factory if these false fashioned conglomerates cleaned up their supply chain production and provided a safe working environment with that make fast fashion less of a crime all we as Westerners imposing ideals upon these societies similar to colonialism? I am playing devil's advocate here. Ultimately I do think that we will reach a breaking point with stuff on the larger issue at play is capitalism on a side note. I Love Venetia take on leading less excitable life. Maybe lead less excitable live. You wouldn't feel the pressure to buy scroll grow through social media suffer with anxiety depression or other mental health issues. I feel if the tide is turning. What a brilliant message and it opens up a whole other part of the conversation and makes me think that it would be really interesting to get another guest on to talk about that supply? Chain talk about if fast fashion conglomerates cleaned up the supply chain in production and provided a safe working environment. What what will the future look like? So if that's a show that you want to listen to if there's a guest that you would like me to get on or if you would like me to search for guest you could speak on that then do let me know but I thought that was a really brilliant message and I love hearing from listeners. As you know another message I received was. I've just recently you discover your podcast and I'm really enjoying it to the most recent one of fashion really struck home because I've found myself. Czar aisol since January two thousand nineteen. Well done on and I will continue to do so going forward. I really wish that you and your guest had addressed the world influences play and our obsession with foster fashion for example twenty was mentioned by owning a positive way and there were so many like her and probably worse in terms of schilling tons of fashion. I think that as long as you cheap fashion holes continue we will never get a handle on the massive. That's a problem that we've created. Thank you for putting out some very interesting content. That's really interesting and it's not to say that that wasn't a conversation that we ended up sort of unpicking off off line. We didn't deliberately have it offline by the way it was just something that came up and I think the thing I would say about that is. I think it's really difficult to point the finger finger at influences if actually if you were to say to them I as I did when I started exploring this subject they they might be in a position from where they actually say. I sort of know that there's a problem but I didn't realize it was as extensive so I think it is. Maybe something that needs to be dealt with differently without naming names if that if that makes any sense obviously if there are people doing youtube holes about what they got in store than that not come be troubling and troublesome if then prompt people to grow and by the same thing obviously Brown's corporates just want US buying buying buying. Because that's how people make money and I do think that it is definitely worth exploring. And maybe that's something to have in another conversation but clearly the episode on fast fashion definitely really prompted an awful lot of feedback. Similar to those T- messages. There were a lot of comments as well but I think it was all first foray into just sort of lifting the lid on it and really understanding am I think I will definitely be trying to get guests on in the future who can speak with more authority and knowledge about the bigger issues on the things that have been brought up in some of these questions and how that all plays into it but basically this is a big thank you to everybody is taking the time to send such brilliant considered bright wonderful messages. I really really appreciate it. And it's really appreciate you taking the time to get in touch and talk about the other episode that has generated a huge amount of feedback and it kind of ended up being a bit of a double whammy. I talked about the book brain over. been which I read towards the end of last year and felt made a real impact on my life because I felt as though it gave me the information I needed needed to adopt mytalk relationship with food not mytalk relationship with my body but my toxic relationship with food and as a subsequent sequence I have lost weight and there were so many questions when I originally talked about this on the episode with training at the beginning of twenty twenty that I decided to do standard I in episode last week and the feedback has been absolutely huge. Probably some of the most feedback. I caught on a single episode. Ever people saying saying thankfully that they understood where it's coming from and the reason why I say it was a double whammy is because I recorded the episode because of all the messages I was guessing and said Oh and I also recorded recorded an episode with Alex light on her podcast. Talk about it in much more detail and as it happened not long after I finished recording minus leprosy. Alex walks up me and said to say you know you're episodes going live tomorrow. We obviously were very similar wavelength and from that. I then got a lot of messages from people saying I've just listened to you episode which was really raw and the most open and honest I've ever ever been about how I feel about my body and the complicated complicated relationship I've had with body image all of my life. I've never been scared. I've published over three hundred fifty cars in the last four years and I have never been as worried about anything. Anything going live as I was about Alex's podcasts because I I was very worried it might upset people or make me sound like complete moron on just needed to get a grip as the trees royal lower says it's the five G.. Good go get a grip go. And that's what I worried about. But actually the feedback has been. Even the other people heard themselves in what I was saying which is really lovely to hear. It's always nice to know that you are not alone in something. So really the feedback from that has been huge and I just want to say a huge thank you. I can't read out every single message because this would be the longest podcast I've ever recorded. But I just want to say that I've tried to get back to everybody personally eh particularly on email on an we talked about a bit in the facebook group but just to say I hear you I. Yeah I know how complicated it can be and I know that there were quite a few people who are saying but what did you do what did you do you want. You read the book you doing particular Diet. I don't think that's helpful. Oh I think everybody's interpretation is is their own and that's how you make it work so I haven't gone into specifics but all I wanted to flag up here really is just a Just a reference the fact that if you if you only had my episode and you want to hear in more detail about quite how complicated relationships with food and my body then I will put the link in the show Alex's podcast and that's really a place where you can hear is really delve into where for over an hour just to say that Alex has has invited me to go back on the podcast because she has had a lot of messages to and she is asked if I would go back and also those questions for her listeners. So if you have anything that you would like me to answer I don't want her show. Please do let me know or get in touch with Alex. Because that's definitely something in the works in the not too distant future which brings me to my final point for this mini any show. which is I put on instagram recently? And asked me not ask me anything but a question saying he. Would you like to see on the podcast. It's my intention in two thousand twenty. Two really really really tackles topics that maybe don't seem like a maybe on topics that we've ever gone there before on this podcast which is one of the reasons why I kinda bounded into twenty twenty with a conversation to our conversation with a professional dominant because just to set the scene of we're always going to be beauty we're always is going to have a brilliant brilliant pal from the beauty industry

Colts roll to their 4th straight victory, 38-10 over the Titans
"Is unbelievable to me because this team that was maligned and now the colts have gone five straight games. Yes, sir. Without allowing a sack, which is the longest sackless streak since Steve McNair when six straight games without a second two thousand six who would have thought this collection of Lyman this cults. Team would be the line that would go five straight games without surrendering sack. What is that line doing what does that offense doing? What is that team doing that? All of a sudden, Andrew luck cannot get touch during a game is unbelievable in Chris Ballard GM and Frank Reich. The head coach have done a phenomenal job at changing the culture in that locker room. And when I say that even in training camp, I went in and I watched them, and I talk to the offense of line Antarctica the team after practice, and I remember going in yesterday, and we walk in the locker room pre-game, and I told told Chris and Frank this feels like home this is the locker room that I'm used to when you walk in. There's an expectation. They're going to win games. There's an expectation that their offense and defensive lines are going to are going to run roughshod and give them a chance to win games. And I'm so proud of of the. Culture that has been created in such a short window. It's Ballard singing and Frank's first, but the culture that's being developed and the belief by these men that they're going to go somewhere. They may not be this year. You know, they may have some pieces they gotta fix, but I'm telling you there is a belief in this locker room amongst these guys did impact a football team not for just one season. But for a collection of seasons and not only did Andrew luck. Not get set. He didn't get touched yesterday against a line in a defense. Totally ret Tom Brady and the patriots the week before. I mean, they harass radio all over the field. They couldn't touch Andrew luck. And the throws it. He's making the timing that he's throwing on when his foot hits the ground. I could I could take cutouts of manning and that offense with Frank Reich years ago when we were playing and look yesterday when it's back foot is hitting the ground. He knows where the ball's going whether it's Hilton on a post whether it's a drag out whether it's a hitch on the silent what and the ball is. Coming out and the trust. He has between the receivers tied ends and backs of where they're supposed to be it looks like the offense that it should be and the timing, and the consistency that everybody's playing with it all starts with elephants of line. But everybody's bought into the philosophy of whoever's turn it is. They're going to get the play. And I'm telling you man, I told him yesterday. We've been texting this morning. I'm just so proud of the way that they're handling it and Q Nelson Quinton Nelson. They're they're pick their first round pick. He was six or eight.

"He's heard from Steve's friends and family. Remember doc knows most of cease friends from his time teaching at all corn state. He stayed in touch over the years with Raymond white in particular at one point during one of their conversations. Fox's Raymond revealed that he'd actually been in the vicinity of Mackerras condo in the early hours of July fourth around the time that Steve died. Raymond said, he drove by the building was considering spending the night there because he'd been drinking Raymond told dog that he ended up not going in the condo. None. That seem to mean. Much till Raymond had a conversation with his own son Ryan at same night in two thousand nine around two thirty AM Ryan said he received a phone call from Robert Gaddi Gaddi was asking me Ryan, whether he knew where St. McNair was hearing all this together that phone call struck doc Simpson is strange if gatty we're looking for Steve why would he call Ryan? Why wouldn't you I gone directly to Raymond? Steve's assistant. But then dot told me, Raymond put it all together. Or at least thinks he put something together the night, Raymond. Stop by the condo even driving Ryan's car. And now in his head, Raymond imagine, maybe Gaddi was in the vicinity of the condo that night to for. God knows what reason and maybe he'd seen Ryan's car outside. Not knowing Raymond was behind the wheel. How else would you? Explain Getty calling Ryan like this asking about Steve in the middle of the night. That was here Sipe at Raymond until I talked to Ryan directly because during the week that Reimann visited me he called ran on the phone, and I was able to ask Ryan directly myself. Is it true? They got it called you to thirty three A M. He say, yes, doc you day as a what did he ask you said, he asked me had I seen David I know where state walls. So that's strange, doc Samson and Raymond discussed all this. When Raymond came to Atlanta, visit a few years ago during that visit doctors Raymond made a call to the FBI he had to call on speaker phones. Docket. Listen in. Raymond wanted to try to set up a meeting to offer up new information on this team. Mcnair case Lee mentioned that Gada needed to be interview about a FBI because he passably new some things he was not making mission about during the time that he was asked questioned by the police department there in Nashville several people felt that more specific questions needed to be asked based on rumors that have surfaced and pod that they had to do with Gaddi called and Raymond son, which he had never call him before back to thirty three in the morning to ask where would stave Raymond son did not work with stay. And how would he know where state was that was an unusual? Call doc says the F B I told Raymond he should contact Tennessee State police, but in the end he says, Raymond did not pursue the matter. Here's he felt like he was getting the run around. I don't know if there's any validity Raymond whites claim the Gaddi. He knows more than he's letting on. But just the fact that he made that phone call to the FBI is remarkable think about it six or seven years after the St. McNair case was closed. His personal assistant called the FBI saying there was new information in the case and that they should question McNair, former bodyguard. Raymond's call went nowhere. But other people have taken more proactive measures to get answers about what happened to Steve McNair. We'll talk about that and more next week on fall of tight.

"What about that, forty four minute gap toll stack there, and you know, even saying gated final day timeframe, or when when Paul was made, you know, we've heard all of it. And I was I was a little gap in in there. You know, just people was digital by FitzGerald told me that he's spoken a gatty a few times over the years at various all corn state events. I know they record it. So I can I put this. I think he, you know, I really don't know what all getting new. I think he had a sense that people at their felt like he knew he had. No, something more that. He no. But me, he'll never went into detail. What he did what he did. No. I remember saying this this this. I I just feel like he's felt like it's been a dog grab. And like I say he never said that's what he was filling. But I said that he felt like he had a lot of weight on the show. Gatty did exchange a few emails with the fact checker on this podcast, and he did clarify a few things. But in the end, he declined to participate in any substantial way, he has however done a few interviews over these past nine years, and whenever he goes on the record you continues downplay any idea that he and Steve at fallen out at a time a McNair his death in two thousand sixteen gatty spoke to reporter with Crimewatch daily, one of the true crime shows that Vincent hill participated in and gatty reiterated his claim that he and Steve never fought over money. It wasn't because of the money we've gone to strip clubs and blown that in our get. He did say, however that they had been fighting over Jenny remember Getty told investigators that he didn't approve of her Gaddi also reiterated how much he cared for St. McNair if he was in danger our stepped in front of that bullet to say that because I love the net much Getty. Didn't another interview this past July with local Nashville TV station on the ninth anniversary of Steve's death. And again, he referred to Steve is his best friend. Vincent hill. Finds it laughable. And it leads him again down the road of suspicion. He thinks gatty is trying to rewrite history in a race. The fact that he and Steve at a falling out he thinks Gaddi should have been a suspect. If only because we have all these people saying that he was caught stealing money from Steve shortly before Steve's death. You got gatty thing me and Steve had a falling out. We weren't talking for last week or two. But yet that's not a clue to this entire thing. Yet, you're the guy that calls nine one one, you know, how many killers show up to the crime scene when police are there just to see what police are doing. Would it be not logical to think that Gaddi call nine one one.

"I wasn't anything moved from our pick. Anything gone was druthers. Was there anything that? You. Well, we don't wanna hear about later, right? Did anybody pay anything that was in there? Did you see him pick something out money anything where anything I know? Essentially too much. On central and here, they are with Gaddi anything moved out. Any money was any weird in there yet? Not nothing. No, no choice. Take take those catch towards the wall in his body right here on the sofa on Friday. To wall. At this time around call now on one farm, and how China I would by the contact. Jenny Neely both tonight taking money from the apartment. So the police at least asked about this idea that maybe someone taken some cash from Steve McNair. But if you go for all the interviews with gatty and Neely natural PD don't seem terribly concerned with figuring out. Why did Wayne Neely and Robert gatty wait so long to call the police they didn't seem to push Neely or gatty on that? I just seem to accept their story when the police interviewed Robert gatty this guy who so many friends say had a falling out with Steve one of the first two people on the scene. They didn't treat them like a person of interest. They treat him almost like an informant. They asked him for leads. They asked him. What did he think happened? They even bounce a few names often. What do you think about lane? He did this to see say this. That's why I look plus band had his hometown. Then the police as Gaddi about Jenny and he seemed to perk up Jen Janney, That's what honing. I wanna know is this chatty or Jimmy G. Need me? I meant genie. I don't know. I won't give Fula one to so many years. We had our own circle. And that's Stephen in people with outside circle app. And he's starting on away. Mention here. But all I know he's he started dating. Croissant? His friend of this to me at times sometimes on this. I told my caddie indicated that he was skeptical Jenny the girlfriend who'd intrude it on this little tight knit circle. He would go on to say that. There was another guy Jenny was hanging out with a friend or relative of hurts a cousin maybe and he didn't like that guy either. He's also spacious if this new driver that Stephen hired Faouzi Ali a foreigner Gaddi called him. All he was the guy who throws back to the condo in the early hours, July fourth gatty questions about all three of them, Jenny Jenny's, relative and Ali. He painted them all outsiders as people who had infiltrated his in. Steve's inner circle people. He didn't trust Gada even brought up Jenny's DUI arrest mearlier that week has girl. Tony. Grow down the summary this week today, we ran until I'm saying, so I don't know how the holy Pete is. Added a whole lot about eighty and I had I didn't approve of lacked hold the first time when he was. She was. Was out. I have no idea that had to be in the twos of that is. This. Occurred when Vincent hill. A former Nashville detective himself heard this interview, you said it sounded as if this was the first time the investigators have heard of Jenny's DUI he thinks it sounds like gatty was planning a seed as if the DUI was something the police look into in from his perspective, the Nashville PD appear to follow Gatti's leave four days later. They announced at a press conference that Jenny and murdered Steve McNair, and they pointed to the DUI as one of the possible signs that she was spiraling out of control national police were satisfied in the resolution, but those closest Steve remained skeptical. Robert gatty, remember, Tim McNair confronting gatty at the ranch asking him something along the lines of. Did you kill my brother? Douglas, Jerrold another former all corn state football player told me that there's been a lot of chatter about Gaddi among his old college teammates. They seem to have the same questions. Vincent hill. Hats, why did you wait to call the police?.

"Visit him in Nashville he'd hand them wads of money just to go out on the town. Jerry Fletcher's these back of it. All corn told me Steve wouldn't even tolerate handling small bills. The twenty five years the net would never have seven dollars in this pocket. Even two thousand more and Steve is. One hundred dollar going by drank kogo lease trying to be his chain. Would you be by eighty dollars? He look get up. Give me man, you know, well won't do that chain? So what I'm saying Steve hundred dollar bills in his pocket. St. when never you never catch him when no seven dollars in my name saying that at but another replay thought he might have been robbed. Oh, yeah. He'd been rob. And then there's this according to dock Cincinnati Chris wall, Steve kept safe at the condo. Dachshunds told me Steve kept emergency money in that state in to his knowledge. Only two other people knew about it Robert gatty in Raymond white. The win the national police arrived on the scene. There was apparently no safe. I asked the police about this. They said they looked into it and determine that there was quote, no evidence that anything had been stolen. Doc Simpson finds that strange to save came missing. And the question is who took the safe. According to Lau, if nobody has any. Video evidence or whatever it it just becomes I guess you can say suspicious because gathered was the one who went in the condo. However, they save could have been taken before Gaddi was in there. Now learned that he was in there for ten or fifteen minutes before he called nine one one. But the question is that anybody going there before the I don't know. That was a big question for the police who had access to the condo gatty told investigators that only way Neely, and Steve McNair keys, you say the Raymond white had one at one point two, but that Stephen taken it away after he caught Raymond having people over, but who's to say whether gatty knew about every last key for starters, one of Jimmy's friend says Stephen recently, given Jenny aqui even way Neely the guy who helps Steve secure the condo was unsure how many people had access. I don't know who had keys or didn't have keys. He told the police he said that Stephen lost more goddamn keys, and you could shake a stick at and the McNair had changed walks twice, Emily Andrews Jenny's roommate remembers one evening when she in January hanging out with Vince young and the titans QB actually invited the two of them over to steaming, nurse condo. So he had a key to she says young tried passing it off as if the place for his apparently, he had no idea that had already been there. Emily told me that they got a kick out of that. I I remember distinctly asking Ben TI like, oh, so is this your place just kind of. Playing playing dumb, and he said, yeah. And like Jenny, and I looked at each other like, okay? And that's when we kind of like left. I mean, it was we joked about it being like this party spot for that. And for the titans and wasn't like sin feel like anyone's home. It didn't it was just like a place for these guys to try and get women at felt like when the national PD examined the crime scene, they reported that there was no sign of forced entry. There wouldn't have been a need to force your way in though, your yet, a key to the condo. And to day. We don't know for sure how many there were again. The only people who we know for sure we're in the condo on July fourth two thousand nine besides Stephen Jenny where Robert Gaddi in Wayne Neely and the police asked both men separately. Did you take anything from the condo? Listen to him question. Neely here..

"Newly tried calling three people. He tried calling. Steve McNair, remember Neely said he thought it might have been one of Steve's friends in the condo. No answer. Then he tried. Raymond. White. Steve's personal assistant Raymond didn't answer either. Then in twelve fifty one PM Neely called Robert Gaddi Getty didn't pick up at first, but he called nearly back shortly after that Neely told gatty that he'd found somebody shot inside, Steve McNair condo. And then Gaddi gave Neely very specific instructions stay outside in wait for me to get there. He didn't tell nealy to dial nine one one. He didn't tell them to call an ambulance gatty said don't do anything wait for me to get there. And nearly says he followed those orders put yourself in the shoes if he's actually describing how things went down. He must have been a nervous wreck. Maybe he figured if one of steaming nears friends has been shot inside the condo is something sensitive needs to be taken care of. And if Steve isn't available then Robert Gaddi arraignment white to seize closest. Friends will know what to do about it. Raymond white had been Steve personal assistant for as long as anyone could remember going back to their days together at all corn steak. Raymond hadn't been on the football team, but he hung out with a lot of jobs, and he went to a lot of the same parties. I was told the Raymond's father owned a nightclub near campus. And that Raymond apparently ran a chicken wings joint. He was known as a fixer the guy with the hookups and towards the end of college is Steve McNair fame began to skyrocket. Raymond white. Sorry running errands for him. Here's O'Brien mix. When a Steve's college teammates describes white Raymond. The right hand, man. Then she even when I won't say on campus. Timothy got cool. The Raymond would just always Raymond in play sports EBay, but Raymond always want to guys that got out. And hopefully, what he wanted in life was always he had all the restaurants and stuff on he thought, you know, he always done things, you know, for, you know, one of those things where we need to know how about you know, let's go here. And do this do that. Hey, man, always a little bit of everything. Around the time. Steve got drafted in the first round in nineteen ninety-five. He hired Raymond white to be his personal assistant full-time Raymond handled. All the little things, you ran errands. He did seize laundry. He did all the chores star football player wouldn't want to do when the weather's moved in Nashville in one thousand nine hundred seven that's when Steve brought Robert gatty into his inner circle. Gatty? Had pleaded all corn stay to he was one of Steve's offensive lineman. But from what I'm told Ghanaian Steve weren't that close in college. That happened later in Nashville was Steve was playing for the titans and gatty was playing for an arena football league. Team. The Nashville cats they had a history together going back to their college days and Steve light Gaddi. He began to trust them soon enough whenever Steve McNair went out in public. He'd have Raymond white and Robert gatty at his side. If white was like, a personal assistant and gatty almost acted like a bodyguard, although it was unclear whether Steve actually paid him. Sometimes it was hard to tell daddy was working for Steve are just hanging out with him like, a friend. Here's how more Harper another teammate of their small corn state described their dynamic the friendship was like like, brother and brother. I mean. That's why it was hard to tell if he was actually doing bodyguard services or not even if he wasn't on. I wouldn't think it would be like on an official level. It'd probably be like, yeah, I'm gonna take my big, buddy. With me. You know, he's gonna be with me wherever I go gatty had aspirations beyond being a bodyguard. Anyway, he was a fixture in the Nashville nightlife scene as a club promoter, he was instantly recognisable by sheer size standing about six foot four and weighing roughly three hundred pounds. He was known around town by his larger than life nickname big daddy Gaddi in after steaming near retired from football around the time. He started dating Jenny Kazimi. He decided to follow him big daddy Gatti's footsteps he'd get into the food and drink industry too. In June two thousand nine listen a month before he died McNair opened a sports bar called gridiron nine. A nod to his old jersey number the place was casual a quick service..

"But I do told me that they then he's saying get it not too long ago with over and get ahead of your private on way higher than sixty fans now and gal way big three sixty three four hundred pag at the travel is probably eight a mug on the inside or whatever now. Oh, yeah. You think it the guilt is getting to them? Yeah. I think to give into to this day people in the McNair circles still have questions rubber gatty. They've questioned by Getty's actions the day Steve died Bez relationship with Steve. And about what he did. And did not know about Steve's death. While the suspicion for starters Gaddi was one of the two people who discovered the bodies. It's steaming near condo on the afternoon at July fourth two thousand nine of those. To he was the one who called the police, but he wasn't the first person to arrive at the scene that was Wayne Neely a middle aged white guy who worked at a Nashville sporting goods store at the time. We need gun to know Steve over the years because Steve would often come into the store the by women for the softball team that he bankrolled the two men struck up a friendship eventually got to the point where they decide to rent a condo together. It's a Steve would have a place to take women when he wasn't with his family. Newly told the police that around twelve forty PM on July fourth two thousand nine he happened to be driving by that very conduct when he saw Steve Kerr parked outside. And you decide to stop in later, he told investigators that you wanted Steve to make an appearance at a little league baseball game later that afternoon and so nearly walked up to the front door. Say that. Okay. Local door and what you saw. So. Sleep. He only saw someone on the couch someone else on the floor, and he thought they were sleeping. Here's a question that Vincent hill, the private detective poses or the lights on when you walked in. If they were you think that would have been obvious. Someone was dead on the couch. Someone who've been shot four times with someone really thought that these people are sleeping one on the floor. But if the lights were off Meghan, how hard it would have been for Jimmy Kazimi to have shot Steve McNair four times with precision in the dark. Remember police say the shooting occurred around two AM the police asked Neely about this where the lights on or off. I don't know. He said I spoke to Charlie Cardwell, the guy who owned the condo complex at the time. He lived in the unit across the way from Stephen nears unit. You also happen to be a good friend of Wayne neely's in cargo told me he spoke with Neely outside the condo shortly. After nearly found the bodies when he first went in.

And then when he comes back, then when he realized that something wasn't right? Nearly apparently didn't get a good look at the guy in the couch. This guy you've been shot four times. He told the police he thought it might have been one of Steve's France for sure. Steve. So. Steve shouldn't be paying. Couch. You expect that to be him since his place. Just the way the way.

"I want to know where are you willing with Steve? This naive his vein. In. So you know, what you were words might the nice early morning. This is your house. Actually, you said. Store to get cold in Betty. He when he got the. Amac laugh. I'm gonna take that didn't have another. He came in my house. So. As he came to my house with seven. I ain't gonna lie for nobody. Tony Smith told the police flat out what Adrian Gilliam said was incorrect. He was not in my house in New York in the early hours July fourth it appears Gilliam lied to the police twice. He lied to them out not knowing Jenny. Then if you believe Tony Smith, he lied to them about his alibi. I tried reaching out teetering Gilliam. But he in return my messages, which left us just to review what he said is police interviews look at all the things Gillion told the police hold them all up together. He claimed he didn't know Jenny. And that was hardly the case. He said he sold Jenny gun because he was strapped for cash when one friend said Gilliam had recently come into one hundred and fifty thousand dollars you said he didn't teach Jenny how to shoot the gun. But then how did you become an expert marksmen overnight? He said she put the gun in her work apron, which is just well that seems hard to imagine. There's apparently no surveillance footage of this gun sale. No hard evidence. Just the word of Adrian Gillian. A convicted murderer now after hearing everything Gilliam had to say you can start to see why Vincent hill wonders if this gun sale even happened at all there's one question about Adrian Gilliam that has stuck with Vincent all this time. If Gilliam wasn't at Tony Smith house the night, St. McNair was murdered. Where was he? At one press conference national police share that at the time of the shooting killing phone pinged off a tower near Smyrna another Nashville suburb, which even further confuses things because Smyrna is even farther away from downtown than any arc. We're Gilliam claim to be that night. It's about thirty minutes from ignorance condo, Vincent hill is a theory about that too. Vince has a lot of theories if you haven't noticed isn't the cellphone infil rules out foul play by Adrian Gilliam. He says Gilliam could've easily ditched his phone in Smyrna. The trick though. Cell phone towers, Nashville police say his phone was paying in Laverne when he made that call great. But that doesn't mean he couldn't have drove the fifteen minutes to condo after that. They're assuming that's the only only had. But it was a thorough way. Cricket phone. He probably had two or three those dang things. Everyone knows your phones walking GPS. You just leave it. It's going to ping on a tower, you leave it if you're going to do something dirty. You leave it. Maybe this is another one of Vincent's crackpot theories. Or maybe not all s the Nashville police about it in a later episode. But see Adrian Gilliam wasn't Steve McNair condo that night. Why would he lie about his whereabouts? And why is so little about his story about the gun sale? Makes sense. If it didn't happen the way Gilliam said, it did then we still don't know for sure how did the murder weapon end up at St. McNair condo. Well, here's something to consider genuine. Hardly.

"With a simple premise isn't believed that Ginny Kazimi murdered Steve McNair, but then fallen further allegiance to a darker place. If Janine kill him who did Vincent funds one detail that looks a little off. If he here's one nugget that contradicts the police narrative, he'll run with it only needs one crumb, and he can work backwards and come up with a theory about what happened that night in St. McNair condo about who was involved. Suddenly you have a conspiracy. I wanted to check though was a possible that Gilliam had no idea Jenny was dead. Remember Vincent said everyone knew that Jenny was dead by sometime around six pm on July fourth the investigation. I try down tapes of the six o'clock and ten o'clock news from the NBC affiliate Nashville. Tennessee titans quarterback Steve McNair was found shot to death through the rive response that call they've found individuals rates questions about McNair relationship is twenty a roadside held Kazimi. I found that the police didn't actually released Jenny's name until sometime around nine forty pm. It's certainly possible. Then the Gilliam didn't know the Jenny was dead. When he continued texting her that day Vincent's theory seems to be based on some aronie ass- pretty basic information. Put Vinson's theory aside now killing alibi that use that Tony Smith's house in the early hours July fourth investigators saw to check that out. Here's giving with the police again. And if we talked to Tony Smith here Kika verify that he was at his house on Friday night, which would be a nice Thursday morning, which bins do third. Absolutely percent as long as his memory remembers correctly. What a weird way to answer that question. Well shortly after that police checked in with Tony Smith. That days. I can't remember taste. But I knew I gotta call. Yes. Some of them. And. Yup. But I know his voice. Head to some of those kept saying has something to tell. Haven bradtha my house. I guess. So. He said. His so done to some goods killed stating that I see it on TV. I. I see it on what I told him that be. But I asked him you need to contact the police that you told police he says some from y'all outfits. And how. Somebody a job Alvis at helping he told them to support it. So the Foley he says somebody at opposite already told me about. I'm not doing with days and and mixing with faces. I can't rid of minimal what David came. But I knew him when he came back. He was upset because I told him, and I got some living and you need to sit down and you need. When I asked him had he told the police he told me he had told me it's over. That's weird. Remember Gilliam told police he was at Tony Smith's house in the early hours July fourth before St. McNair was killed before the police got involved, but it's Tony Smith spoke to the police, Hugh, remember things quite differently. Date. He came. English horse thieves to you. Come on. He gave us Friday. He said. Deadlight around. Night before midnight. This your house that he uses into the store because coq dated on about now. I don't think that was I don't think the night though. I don't. We'll see you. Houston to housing. When I felt. So you before being at your house to Louis, but to two in the morning data Vida is is what what he he say. say. He said west, no. The night tonight. Tonight. Coating. Probably is this thing.

Totally corner. Tony Smith Gillian came over his house after Stephen Jenny heaven found dead after Gilliam it spoken to the Nashville police Smith also said that the previous time he'd seen Gilliam before that was maybe a week earlier. It sure would have been hard then for Gillingham mix up his days..

"The police also needed account for Adrian gilliam's whereabouts on the night of July third into the early hours July fourth and that one's a bit trickier. Remember killing was one of the last people to talk to Jenny alive. He called Jenny twelve o two AM on July fourth, and they spoke for three minutes and for all the other times when gilliam's memory would fail him during his police interviews, he seemed to remember exactly where he was. And what he was doing when he made that call you one downtown Tennessee, I was in VP gestation and poodle of potato how do I because I just live. My friend's house to house. The to go getting a coke coke. The. Crown? Because you go and give me a a cold soda my criminal Ross. So I run ended up to the BP and against facing closed in. So I drove to Burger King about. Coat Gilliam said he was in Antioch, Tennessee when he made that call any is about twenty five minutes away from steaming nurse condo in downtown Nashville. Gilliam said he was running in airing for his friend Tony Smith when he called Jenny. I've called. She come down. That she what she say. Our Cam gnome downtown saying that yes, you come down there. Missing. To about on that you are tall. They decided not to meet up. Apparently. So Gilliam said he returned to Tony Smith's house for a couple of hours at one seventeen AM Gilliam, Texas, Jenny you good that was right around the time McNair arrived back at his condo. Police question. Gilliam about that text. Then roughly a little over an hour later. He cinder Texas says you good user something in that prayer conversation at twelve to that made you believe that someone's going on. No, you good like me lecturing. What that means? Gilliam said he stated Tony Smith house until around two AM. Remember police estimate that Stephen Ginny died sometime around two AM that night. But later that day Gilliam continue texting Jenny according to police file he sent her to text them morning. One at seven twenty one AM and then another at seven twenty six AM both of them read what up then at four ten pm two hours at the police found Jenny dead. Gilliam Cinna blink text to her phone. At nine twenty four PM about nine hours. The bodies have been found Gilliam texted Jenny again asking quote, be going get together tonight. He used the numeral two in the words together. And tonight, you could take those takes at face value. Gilliam didn't know Jenny was dead. And so he kept texting her Vincent hill doesn't do that. Of course, my personal opinion. And if Nashville police were smart, they would see he was just saying his alibi. Right. Because by two thirty three o'clock that day Saturday, July four two thousand nine the entire world news, Steve McNair was dead. And by six o'clock, they knew it was Ginny that was with Steve. Right. So it was clear that Gilliam was setting his alibi. Because he in his mind. He's thinking will police are gonna ask what I had to do with this murder. So if I text her I was who would I text if I knew she was dead. You know what I mean? It was clear what he was. Doing what Vinson is accusing guilty of doing is pretty heavy. And it's that kind of thinking that can leave you scratching your head about Vincent about the veracity of his questioning, he's basically implying the Gillan was trying to throw the Nashville PD office set because he was somehow involved in the murder of Steve McNair, this is where things get dicey. When you start listening to all the questions and theories that Vincent hill has about the St. McNair case, Vince starts.

Eventually she started texting. We saw tongue. She told me that you know, she wanted to she sorry. Jenny was stressed because Christie Rudolph had sucker with old Kia, and then Emily interested moved out of their apartment Jenny was stuck making two car payments and covering over rent in as all this was happening. She apparently turned away ex-boyfriend for support. I was trying to find way. Because I know she stressed out. I know she's she has stressed out like that. She's stressed out. But at the same time. Something is asked. Is there anything else she talked about Jenny confided in Norfleet that things were going poorly with Vic near she told Norfleet? She wanted to go to Steve's, wife, and expose the affair. But Norfleet told her that wasn't a good idea. Eventually Cheney told Keith she was done seeing Steve that they broken up. Emily Andrews told the police Norfleet had been wanting to get back together with Jenny for some time. He still he called her in. I read the text messages. He would send her like as days of hell why they should get back together at home. She missed her what she meant to him and her kind of opinion on it was, you know, he he he only grow up, but she said she outgrew him, and it wasn't. She didn't feel passionate for him. Or it wasn't the love that she felt that she could have with someone else. Now Jenny was telling Norfleet the Chia McNeil through. You would think the Norfleet might have seen this as perhaps his chance to win Jenny Beth? He told police that he and January getting to the point where they were regularly hanging out together.

One day after the Nashville police found the bodies of Steve McNair and Jenny Kazimi. Investigators traced the murder weapon, Abrego Jennings nine millimeter handgun back to a car salesman. Endangering Gilliam the police interviewed him in his home in suburban Nashville in that interview Gilliam told the police that he'd sold the gun a few days prior. So to some young late for the night. He didn't even know her name. He said this woman had found his business card on a car windshield. She'd reached out and asked if he could help her sell her use Kia, and then Gilliam said Jenny asked him casually. Do you happen to have a gun? I could buy two he said that he made the sale for a hundred dollars. He said they made the exchange in the parking lot of Dave and busters at the Opry mills mall in Nashville, but he didn't see remember which day this gun sale took place. Nathan can you can you try to the best? Your data was might have been the day before yesterday.

Ginny Kazimi had killed Steve McNair in murder suicide based upon the appearance of the crime scene.

"Yes. Since I guess you could save probably since July eighth when they had the press conference and they said it was murder suicide. I was like, Nope, no way. So since July eighth two thousand nine. Like there's probably this honest truth not at least two days that go by where I don't go back and you can see this big rig folder with hundreds of pages in it that I don't go back and say, one of my missing. Remember when I first reach out Vincent in the summer twenty seventeen. He said he just received some new information. He told me that a buddy of his for the police department called him with a tip is falling up on a rumor that Vincent heard awhile back. So the rumor was that the very first EMT in the ad really be curious to talk to that person in the first officer on the scene said that when they went in, Steve, was castrated and his penis was in his mouth. And you know, I looked at the autopsy, there was no mentioned that, right? So you kind of take it with a grain of salt, but I get a call from a friend who was on the department when I was he on parliament for twenty years out of the blue. He called me, he leaves me message, hey, I know you're still working on this McNair thing. Give me a call what the heck. So I call him. He's like, so what we're Steve's injuries like, yeah, you know, once needs temple twice in the chest, was he missing anybody? Parts said, well, I heard a rumor years ago that he said. He was castrated penis was in his mouth. Yeah, that's it. It's like, yeah, he's like, I got it on thirty. That's true. I mean, Jesus, Christ castrated. I know this only a rumor a rumor being related from secondhand source. I don't know the validity of this claim, but I will eventually interviewed the frenzy pathologist to perform the autopsy and try to get some answers. Mike move made it clear Stephen years. Immediate family doesn't wanna talk to all I have right now is Vincent. I don't know whether I can trust him. I don't know what is motive czar but he spent nine years now investigating this case. You can tell me where to start looking. You'll come to see that what I'm doing is not exactly investigation. Rather a reexamination of the St. McNair case. We're going to lay out the evidence review all the characters involved and go through the case step by step, and we're going to examine all through the eyes of Vincent hill, the private. I just won't let this case Di. I think there was a lot of hate whoever did this. There was a lot of hate for Steve, right? You should someone four times, especially after you're dead. There's a lot of hate their right, and if the story's true that Steve was castrated, you don't do that unless there's a lot of hate personal, hate fear, so it could be a hundred reasons why that happened. And again, it could lead back to ten of the suspects other than Jimmy Kazimi. Still to come on fall of titan. I don't know if you've ever been out state, but Steve was everything.

"And the time when he worked undercover in a prostitution sting, it led to several arrests. Then there was a story win late one night, Vincent Southam in the street because he looked like a domestic violence. Suspect. The police were looking for Vincent asked for the man's ID and social security number. And when both of them appeared fishy, Vincent brought, the man into custody, it turned out that the man was wanted in Atlanta on homicide and cocaine charges. The Nashville PD presented Vincent in a ward and sent out a press release commending his work. On the case run surpassed the national chief of police said, quote, officer hill, tremendous job following his instincts. This is just great police work. If there is a crime is gonna find it. If you ran, I was gonna chase like it's like a dog sees a cat. It's going after the cat. I mean, I was that guy man tracking down people's like the only thing I've been doing for the last fifteen. You know, years his investigating stuff and he I, I love it. It's like I can see myself doing anything else to be honest with you. Just couldn't. I. I wouldn't have the same passion for something else's would I do on a daily basis. But when Vincent started speaking up about the St. McNair case, the natural police turned on, they tried to discredit him as a detective. They point out that Vincent. I never worked in homicide during one press conference, a natural police detective called Vincent's work on the McNair case, nothing but innuendo speculation and gossip. The national police also pointed to an ugly incident that marred, the end of Vincent's police tenure, as I look through his police file. Another embarrassing story turned up actually, it was two thousand five Benson, a few of his colleagues at just arrested a home, invasion, suspect Vincent, put the suspect in the back of his car and stepped away for a few moments to speak to another officer. Yes, the third officer to keep an eye on the suspect for him. But the third officer was preoccupied filling out his own paperwork when no one was looking, the suspect, slipped his handcuffs to the front, open the car door. It came around to the front seat. Benson watched help. As a suspect drove off in his own car. The national police later apprehended the suspect, but Vince received a five days spent for negligence. The more incident, the incident, the Nashville police still point to came in June two thousand six Benson was pursuing a suspect in his car when his superior ordered him to terminate his pursuit. Benson told us appear that he was terminating the pursuit. But instead he continued a fall, the suspect into another county only with police lights turned off. Then later Vinson was accused of line superior about this obeying orders. The department was preparing to suspend Vincent for at least eighteen days maybe more when he decided to leave the department in September, two thousand six. With the case, still pending Vincent told me that he left it apartment due to personal reasons. He was in the middle of splitting up with his second wife and his daughter from his first marriage at come to live with him being a single dad, who's a police officer who works three to eleven, and you have a ten year old at the time, staying at home buyer self to like midnight doesn't become something you want to do too often. So. It was time to just become dad, and it was just time to close that chapter in my life. During his exit interview, Vincent told the Nashville PD that he was taking a job at the Dollar General vincit told me the applied for job at the Dollar General, but he said he never ended up working there. He couldn't remember why about six months later, Vincent send a letter to the Nashville police department asking first job back, but Ron surpassed the police chief turned him down in so Vincent moved on. He told me that he worked for his family's trucking company for some time and then became a fraud analyst for data company. That's what was doing which Stephen near Jenny Kazimi turned up dead on July fourth, two thousand nine. I don't know if instant start investing in this case to get on TV or to make money. Maybe that's part of it, maybe not. But I do think he saw Stephen nears death as an opportunity, an opportunity to flex his investigative muscles. Again, get back to his glory days when he's chasing down bad guys. That's much more exciting than working office job working at the dollar Jenner. Vincent told me he's been investing in your case pretty much continuously since two thousand nine?.

"We want to hear what this ex cop had to say like he worked in Nashville, why does he not think it's murder suicide her if you want to tell a story, tell it yourself right? So Vincent start writing a book about all his research and theories he called it playbook to murder. The final product is one hundred thirty three pages, but a reads quicker than that the margins are ridiculously why the writings also slobby on the page. Elise, Vincent does come off a little bit like a rambling conspiracy theorist. Listen, this passage Vinson rope. All who spoke to help is Amy stated. She barely would raise her voice, let alone physically hurt anyone. So how did this seemingly peaceful twenty year old go from joyful and easy going to assassin before turning the gun on herself or was to help as Amy the sacrificial lamb, the service, the fall guy to Titanic cover. A little cheesy, right? But if you get past all that Vincent does make a number of good points talks about how the murder weapon was cheap gun that often got stuck. He talks about how is unlikely that Jenny a complete novice could have been that accurate. He has questions about the police narrative regarding Jenny's motive. He's questions about the two guys who found the bodies to Steve's friends a why took them so long to call the police. He's questions about items possibly missing from the condo. He's questions about the ex-con religiously sold, Jenny, the murder weapon. In short, he thinks the police royally botched the case. Vincent started printing the books and selling them basically out of his house by word of mouth by head on a zip drive. So I would take the fix kinko's and the closest one was fifteen twenty miles from my place. I would take the FedEx kinko's print out the copies out, get the paper cutter because I knew what size needed to be cut, cut it perfectly. And then I would literally go home and bind them. So I had this binding machine in my home office at bind it one at a time, let it dry. Do the next one let it dries. So I went so far in the hole with that book. Trust me. Eventually he started selling them on Amazon for nineteen ninety nine at one point. Vincent tried reaching out to a few publishing companies to try and expand the books profile. According to Vincent one of them responded and said, it was willing to buy the book for somewhere around two hundred thousand dollars as long as he made some edits as Senate to like four or five, right? And this one and Wisconsin responded. We started corresponding on the phone and I'll never forget. She says, well, we're willing to buy the rights to the book signing to this deal. It was in the hundreds of thousand. But first we want you to incorporate Tiger Woods and someone else. I can't remember some other athlete that had gotten caught having fair, and I'm like, whoa, what's that gotta do with anything right? She said, well, it'll just add sex appeal to the book and like all the books not about six feel the books about the murder of Steve McNair. Suheil Kazimi what didn't happen versus what did happen? Oh, will we know what. Sales and we can have this out before the Super Bowl and you'll make yada, yada, yada per unit. And I'm like, no, no. So yeah, I turned it down and to this day and honest and said, do not regret that decision, right? Because to me, integrity is everything. Instead Vincent turned around and tried using that integrity as a way to get close to lucielle McNair. Steve's mother in March twenty ten, Vincent sent her a copy of his book and handwritten letter shared a copy of the letter with me. In the letter Vincent told, you seal the publishers offer you wrote quote, I strongly told them that is not the reason behind the book, and I would not disrespect Steve or his family. I told them take it or leave it. So I guess they left it besides the intent behind the book was not to become rich, who's about doing what's right. Vincent seemed to be trying to convince her intentions were pure. He did make a point of noting quote I am by no means suggesting I am one hundred percent correct. However, they were too many flaws with the investigation too many lies by countless people for the case closed in four days. Exclamation point..

"Her body ended up falling to the floor, and that's where she was when two of Steve's friends found the bodies several hours later in the early afternoon of July fourth, two thousand nine after nearly four days of intensive investigation that includes laboratory test results and other investigative methods. The police department has concluded that Steve McNair was murdered by Suhil Kazeem ING, and that interns he'll Kazimi killed herself with a single gunshot wound to her head while we may never know exactly what drove misconceive me to make that decision on that Saturday morning, the totality of the evidence clearly points to a murder suicide. Vincent thought. All sound a little too perfect, a little too Shakespearean. He didn't think the Ginnie Kazimi a petite, Dave and Buster's waitress was capable of such an elaborate killing and three days later according to Nashville police, the case was ruled a murder suicide.

So that's what really got me start questioning the validity of the case at just looked at the circumstances. Okay. You have this twenty year old female who had just turned twenty who basically was living the life. She was dating a millionaire next football player. You know, she had Cadillac Escalade. She had gone across the country on all of these lavish trips. And then when natural police said Steve was shot once in each temple and twice in the chest.

We write stories on the intersection of crime in sports, weirdly enough. I never done anything significant on McNeil's death. What's more when I told people I was working on this story, many of them had forgotten. The McNair was even debt. I found that odd. It was a borderline hall of fame quarterback who's gunned down by his mistress, and people just forgot about that. Maybe it's because Steve was retired from football by then and out of the public eye or maybe it's because the police considered it an open and shut case. Just four days after the bodies were found the natural police held a press conference and announced the Jennie had murdered Steve in a fit of jealous rage and then turned the gun on herself after that, neither Steve's family nor Jenny's family said much of anything.

You know, we're talking eight years ago now back July four, two thousand nine. And for me I can remember that day like it was yesterday. I was getting ready to get in the shower and someone called me and they said, hey, Steve got shot in them like Steve who? Like Steve Johnson, Steve Jackson, no, Steve McNair. I'm like, yeah, whatever. So I turn on the news and sure enough. The initial report was that Steve McNair had been found inside a condominium Nashville down on second avenue, and there was a female that was found with them as well. That was also dead. And you know it, it just blew my mind. Right. It was one of those things like, how did this happen? What happened? Who did it and why? Here's what the Nashville police said happened. They said that in the final weeks of her life Jennie was spiraling out of control. She had suspicions that Steve is cheating on her. She was getting more and more str-. About her financial situation.
