Coronavirus: Are We Back Where We Started?

"More about six months into this outbreak. And I've been you know a lot about how it all started. For me the first time I had anything about this virus was in January, a relative who works in Hong Kong had told me about this email. She'd gotten warning her of this. We'd cluster of pneumonia cases from mainland China They went many details and I didn't think much of it. Was On my mind for months Australia has endured the most prolonged and destructive bushfire emergency in memory I was in Australia at the time. The air was so smokey today. Someone told us that it made Melvin the most polluted city on earth. Who is just stifling. And then this big rain came rain. You're hearing now. And the air is so clear again. I, had bought a mosque for the smoke, a good one and brought it back to the states with me as we add memento that I thought the TAME would get a kick out of. Curiously some scientists now think of the beginning of this coronavirus pandemic as kind of fire. With spock's that made it out of China and around the world. We now think that the match was struck in November. That's probably when this virus fest emerged according to genetic analyses and patient data. And from China quickly spread. Recent research has found that by December. The virus was already in Europe. It was in sewage samples in Italy and someone in France was infected around Christmas. Soon the blaze came to the US. Didn't know it back then, but we now think that in January and early Feb it was one. SPOCK's in China and a couple of MBA's from Europe. And now six months on. This fire is still burning. Seeing record numbers of new cases in the US and cases of spiking and other places too like Iran. It almost feels like we're back to where we were months ago.

"Are your feelings about? Some of the rule changes that are in in the agreement, particularly the. Runner at second to to start extra innings, which is obviously something you don't usually see outside of say, Youth Baseball well I think it's. Time to experiment with those things it's now you don't WanNa. Play fifteen in sixteen in Games. It looks like there's going to be very few days off. When? You look at that runner on second base scenario. You know if if four tales not in a game. He's pretty easy guy to run out there. In that spot you know you can. You can replace the whoever made last out or whatever and and have a guy like that, so you know we're. We're looking at different scenarios in in in the different rule changes right now, but again I think there's every China time that you want to experiment with Steph lumped at its right now because there's going to be so much change that you know a couple of other instances, rule changes really won't seem as impactful. one of the things that really doesn't affect you guys too much. Except for when you're playing nationally teams in national parks, but there. Obviously we'll be adopting the D. H. at least for this season as a former national league player yourself. How do you feel about the D. H. in the National League this year? Yeah, I, think this year you almost have to because we're gonNA play our division. We're GONNA. Play the West, and not a ton of time for these pitchers to get ready, and it's. It's difficult enough getting them ready. It's even more difficult having hit. Hit and do some other things in in ramping up that much quicker so I think that'll be universally accepted whether or not that happens down the road I I've always liked. The difference is the American league with the in the National League with the pitcher hitting, so you know if if it does or it, doesn't that just really not not a lot of off my back, but I think it's the right thing that you right now because it's just another area that you're GonNa have to get some guys ready and you wants to weigh from injuries. Much cost McCann. Your team has sort of famously the last few years and really the as an in. Over the years have had trouble coming out of the gate quick, it's a sort of notoriously slow. Starting team gets hot in the second half. How do you avoid that this year because?.

"Getting out there and playing baseball and trying to get a seasonable. You're Kinda famously a Germaphobe. How how comfortable are you with getting things back up and running? Considering that cases are going up in some areas including some areas where there are major league teams that are based. Yeah, you know it's going to be in the back of everybody's mind. potential as they are, even if you're disciplined in what you're doing that, you're going to have some positive cases and we probably will be. You're seeing it so. I you know what I I'm pretty good about washing my hands, and we've always had allowed bench, and I'm not one hundred percents certainty how the Dugout is going to look whether it's. Going to be six feet away I'm guessing you're going to have to have masks on its way. It sounds right now, so. You do the best you can with it And and take it to two different levels, so you know there's certain guys that that realize always have kind of that that. You know this is just kind of the way you are, and some of the guys that that haven't been that way. See some of the handshakes, and so forth that the pass those are going to be out in in. Guys aren't going to be able to do stuff like that. So certain guys'll be. It'll be easier for inserting certain guys more difficult. What do you feel like you're going? Going to be the hardest things to enforce, you know they've talked about things like spitting and guys, not pitchers especially not licking their fingers before they grip the ball. What sort of things do you think might be toughest? Those are two. Are there but I you know I? How do you enforce them I, mean the awareness obviously in when guys go out there and play and we'll have. You know the workouts leading up to it that you kind of get used to those type of things, but you know in in the heat of the moment when you're playing baseball, everything comes to you pretty naturally and.

So, we met when we were both travelling Solos through South America and we both decided to volunteer organization `Pisco Peru helping out after the earthquake down there, and we met while volunteering together and volunteered together for about six months, and then just continue traveling together, and that was back in two thousand twelve, so we've just continued the life of travel as a couple now and into a lot of places around the world. Yeah, this is this is life We made the transition. We started the trouble blog in trouble counting crash everything that's involved with that probably back. In mid two dozen took a few years to get started, but within the last four years. That's what we've been doing full time. Traveling around the world. We have a couple of biases that we like to to. Work out of our Bali in come back to San Francisco Melvin, but other than that way on the right full-time. Working Travel Yeah. It's a pretty pretty good offer now. It's. The travel industry is citing you blah. Don't forget to move. How's IT affected leering, come with a having forgot to move, but we're definitely not moving at the moment. With travel bicycling orbits stopping within a wake over here in the US it really just. Kinda pull the rug out from under old trips. We had for the rest of the planned. Will avail earn travel plans and pretty much just stopped on so all the troops, all the brands in the companies and destinations that we had planned to work with new coming six months old had to postpone those trips over the other hotness ships and stuff like that we had organized as well just as budgets became todor in trouble became a non everything just pigeonholed hold, and it's pretty much where we are at the moment, just whiting in Limburg for the travel industry to kick back up again, Gills thinking of.

Focus your attention on your on your podcast until those stories. Where do they come from? So we tell stories that we find from France from other travel bloggers from stories from the news, all sorts of stories, books and movies, but all true stories of when things go wrong while traveling which we find to be, they make the best stories right. You don't come home and tell all your friends and family about the time that everything perfectly. When you're out traveling the world, you tell them about the time that your bus broke down or you had your cameras stolen or something crazy happened. Those always make the best stories, and we found that there with social media and instagram and everything. There was this skew trend towards the glamorous side of travel where everything is picture perfect and you're on a gorgeous beach. No one else is there and everything. It just looks wonderful, but everyone who's traveled knows that there's the other side of that where it's. You're hiking down to this beach in your sweaty and there's probably a million people there and somebody's trying to. To sell you, you know like that's just the real side of traveling, so we wanted to bring that the forefront and just chat with people about that and tell stories of when things go wrong in the road, because that's more interesting in our opinion,

Floyd family attorney says charge against officer should be upgraded to first-degree murder

"Well and I've been talking for days now about the the tragedy of the death of George Floyd at the knee of a police officer who held him down for eight minutes shot by the neck and he eventually lost his life and that man has now been charged with third degree murder second degree voluntary met involuntary manslaughter people are looking for more even possibly first degree murder I was listening to the the Florida attorney today talking on national television and discussing a number of things concerning the case and how they believe there may be some well premeditated aspects of this case but the reason I'm bringing it up on the sports show we'll get to that in a moment I have Greg dial is who is on the disk gets to the pitch for news line who happens to be an attorney at law and I I think it's very important that we don't lose sight of the story in Pittsburgh last night tragically we felt some of that violence that continues to spread from coast to coast am tomorrow night in my program I'll be talking in pretty much opening the phone lines between eight and ten and giving you a chance to voice your opinion and we all will on KDKA radio over the next couple of days but the thing that I really took away without watching Margaret o'brien talked to the mayor of Atlanta of course as I mentioned talk to the attorney for the Floyd family talking to other people like Melvin Carter the mayor of J. Paul Minneapolis if this is a story that is polarize our nation especially in the midst of this pandemic but when you think of calling Capranica those are people of color in sports and what they have done to stand up for the black race and minorities many NBA players were actually involved in these protests some of them returned to Atlanta where they grew up to to speak their mind and be a part of a peaceful protest that obviously turn very the ugly with a lot of violence there's been discussion of anarchist a white supremacist if you will who have rolled into various towns to ignite these fires literally and these horrible Ryan said for the most part many people but we're going to be peaceful protest so Greg the reason I want to talk to you as far as athletes this is nothing new I've seen Jim Brown and many others Kareem Abdul Jabbar Mohammed Ali obviously spent most of his life fighting for civil rights this is just such a very bad time in our country's history my question to you is when you think about what happened to Mr Floyd and there are many great law enforcement officers out there but one thing is for sure when you're dealing with many athletes many of them of the black race this is a concern into something has been a part of the sports world is a part of all of our lives and I think that we owe at least a segment or two because of your legal background and your sports background to talk about it and again no one ever thought that this would be the story that would kind of replace this pandemic even in the midst of the pandemic and it's a shame that it's come down to this but there's no way that you go anywhere right now in this region or any television station running radio station or a newspaper you pick up that this is not the story good morning good morning robin unfortunately it's really not a good morning I I wish there were different things to talk about generally enough for you guys you know I usually come in with some happy new year for you in the mornings but it it just feels like there's something gone wrong that the world is off its axis or something but but there's just seems to be more more bad news each and every day but we'll get through this we we are hearty people and we'll figure it out and and we actually you man elements need to be able to to figure out ways to pass these things out but it's very difficult and it's hard for for me a white man to to be able to express a what's the the people of all colors are experiencing in our country right now because I I'm not listed but but I do have your clients and friends said no we can't have a conversation about and try to figure out ways whereas the people that we can go forward and and you know put all these differences a lady somehow some way but but boy it's really just off for a sound doesn't seem like there's any kind of logical or reasonable way to proceed because the patch things up you know as I was watching the face the nation program I must tell you I really was torn whether or not I should bring it up again after spending the majority of the last couple of days talking about it and will over the next couple of days despite us having a June second primary it will be the topic of conversation during the open talk portion of my programs right through Wednesday night in some of the folks that I have scheduled for political purposes are perfect because a lot of folks are tying the political aspect as far as from local government to state government a national government it's all leading up to this June second primary so the timing is there but I just wish it was something else that I was discussing but I said to myself you know listen I've always been one to try to take the high road and have a peaceful outlook and not really try to stir the pot but this is something there's really struck me personally because of watching that video and obviously having many people in law enforcement of color and yes of course many of them are dear friends I understand that they too are frustrated because of what happened in Minnesota with this police officer all I can say is this growing up even in the turbulent civil rights era of the sixties the one thing that always brought people together especially on the playground in the neighborhood was sports and then I saw some of my sports heroes like Muhammad Ali my all time favorite also Jim Brown in there another scream of dole Jabbar who always stood up and spoke out but I must tell you it's just so sad to see something that is happening of this nature in twenty twenty that I experienced during the height of the civil rights watching the nightly news with Walter Cronkite seeing the black and white film footage of the fire hoses turned on young black teenagers attack dogs police dogs if you will that were put into that mode because that was the command they were given it's just hard to believe that we have evolved so many decades later we're sports's evolve where in the world now without sports we lost a hundred thousand people in this country and counting when it comes to the pandemic and this is on the front page and no matter how you look at it is just flat out sad to think we have not come that very far since Martin Luther king walked this earth and lost his life because of his fight for civil rights it almost makes you feel like robbery we haven't come anywhere you know we we're we're right back to where we started in the sixties in it is so sad to to have to be in a situation where where in hello to our address like that the only way they can can express those the end it is these were mostly protests that were peaceful in and well deserved and then they turn crazy because of outside sources apparently and no one knows for sure but it seems that that especially in Pittsburgh this was not something that was driven by the peaceful protests that started out in that that's bigger shame of it all in and I'm hoping that there is some way to find these people that came in there that that tried to incite the violence to to get to a point where we can catch them and get them off the street there's no place in our world you know Greg and I don't know if it's because when we were raised in one of the things that I've been stressing to my audience and I have been through it all I've been through rose Jonny Gammage obviously going back to the nineties up with Rodney king I have been on the radio talking about all of these things and how tragic they are and hoping that they would stop just like the school shootings that I go back to nineteen ninety nine covering the Columbine case the thing that I have come to believe it is all about what you can do teaching your children about how this is not how you act do not treat people of a different color race nationality religious belief other than how you want to be treated that's the way you and I were both raised in I'm not looking for us to get a gold star or a Pat on the back but you have to know is I know the way we grew up weather was on the basketball court or the classroom or just spending it time at home eating something that our parents prepare force and you looked across the table many times that person was black and I never looked at it any other way than just that a friend of mine enjoying a moment whether it be in school in that classroom or on that basketball court or on that of field of athletics and I think we become so isolated not just because of this pandemic but the world that we live in today that people have lost sight as far as what they need to do and how they should be raising their children and more importantly something that I've always thought was healthy a healthy mix of people from all walks of life we we need to get back to that if we want to survive this and move forward and be a healthier nation not so much for you and I but for your daughters and my children and generations to come yeah I can't agree with you more there has to be a way to figure this out there investors are seemingly every time an issue or an engine that comes up like this we often dialogue began everybody just kind of goes back to their quarters in as if it were a boxing ring what okay yeah we had these conversations but nothing gets accomplished you're nothing gets fixed and then you have another incident where were some law enforcement in the Milan in an attack on law enforcement you know they they're there for the better part of on everyone and probably more than ninety nine point nine percent all law enforcement officers in doing the right thing but the house in in increments and issue like this that seemingly are happening in the weekly Robinson it is these issues come up or that they go along if someone acts in a way

How can we find connection in disconnection?

"Hey Krista my name is Vanessa. I'm calling from Melvin Australia. I'm I'm curious to hear your thoughts given the current situation. The world finds itself in how we can find connection in in disconnection. I think we'll have a judy. The health and being our world and the people that live in it to disconnect but in a timely connection has never been so important. How do we? How do we balance the two? How do we disconnect physically while remaining emotionally socially connected to others? Oh it's such an interesting question because So thank you Vanessa? It's such an interesting question in one way because I feel like What's coming to mind for me and my own experience of what you're describing Has EVOLVED A lot. In these weeks of lockdown corentin enforced disconnection him so Physical disconnection as you say And Yeah I mean I I I will try to see if I have anything anything Really practical to add in terms of advice but really what the question One makes me want to do is reflect on this week on some of the things I feel like I'm learning or some of the things that maybe this This strange experience is teaching me. Is Teaching US You know it's something that I've thought about across the years but now feels like the most present thing is just the primacy of our bodies and I've thought so much about how in the Western World In Madeira not. We've we've just structured so many sophisticated and inventive ways of pretending like everything doesn't always come back to our bodies that we you know it begins and ends in our bodies and in there's mess and frailty fair and limitation but also energy and life itself and so one of the things I've been thinking about is this you know what I'm calling zooms Austin. The technology is so miraculously but this experience of only connecting to each other by way of pixels is also really laying out some of the very severe Limitations of it. And so you know one thing I've become aware of is what I what I think that I've never thought about before but I think how much energy we actually draw from each other like raw energy at a primal animal level when we are in the room together and the that doesn't communicate through this green. You know the the view of someone's face And to some extent the The emotions that can be read in and responded to their the voice which I feel is so embodied but I think that the the way I feel and everybody talking to feel so completely worn out and depleted by the only connection being By way of technology has something to do with the fact that we were not were not Replenishing just

"All right. Thank you so much for making it here today. We've been looking forward to speaking with you so I guess maybe we could just start with you telling us a little bit about your background and where you grew up. Thanks Ron and Joe. So much for having me on pleasure to be here. I grew up in Sydney in a fairly nice suburb. You know I didn't really want for anything and I moved to Melbourne about ten years ago and finally my mom used to practice IAGO. I remember memories of sort of lying on a per format in the living room doing funny things and I thought it was really boring and he. We are so my partner's actually English and so we sort of visit England every year or so. We go and see my family in Sydney every year or a couple times a year we can and we're about to move to England so that's a big so I know you said that you watched your mother to Yoga. Yeah it was really boring. What actually turned you around there. It's isn't it? I think he's sort of something. Might be right in front of you and it's not until you're in the right space or ready to receive whatever that is. Yeah I mean is to go along with attain to the yoga classes at the local kind of Rixon all just to spend time together but yeah in honesty. I thought it was quite boring. And then many's lytle. I came to your in a funny way because quite active I used to run a lot and do triathlons. And that's hard on the body. I was wandering taking up your your pilots for a while. But it's one of those things that you put off and actually my partner and I will planning our wedding in England also. We caught up with this guy. Who's a chef? He's English and he was dividing his time. Between England. Summa and Melvin muscle the so we caught up with him at a cafe in Fitzroy. Would you believe and he brought his partner and so we're planning our wedding in England and she said all. I'm actually yoga teacher and I teach around the corner. And this was Gertrude Street studio and so we decided that at a winning it might be a nice thing to have some younger classes because we had a small wedding with all our family and friends all staying together in a house and so we had yoga classes so that was my first sort of experiences an adult at my wedding the day before the the day of my wedding and I loved her and so when we came back. I thought this is really something I want to explore. And I've been pretty much in a monogamous relationship with the studio since then so that would have been about five just over five years. Yeah so I'd say I'm fairly new to yoga for someone who's a teacher heard newel. Dp A better introduction to just seeing all of your loved one useful. Celebratory way when you're about to move into this new phase of your life totally and it was pretty hilarious too because we had I think my dad and my partners mom and onto your uncle practice also sixty seven year olds by now. We had young kids running in and so really it just sort of teaches you. Mindfulness and acceptance and kindness. And things like that so yeah it was a moment. I think back on quite a lot. You know what a profound sort of moment in my life. Yeah in which she. She passed away about seven years ago. Yeah so I I think I you know as we all sort of failed that we're becoming parents a little bit as we get older and yeah I do do think only about a thing that she would really love that. I'm practicing and I've discovered that and it's a big part of my life so yeah I can imagine her thinking that like. Yeah that's right so since you found this love of Yoga. Have you found any hitches? Yeah I mean mostly in Melvin I would say Sheshona Arnstein. She was the wife of the chef who first introduced us. And so I've practiced with her for a bit at gertrude straight. And I guess a lot of the teachers I resonate with a vice gotree straight in Fitzroy and I sort of played around with a stronger practice but yeah for me. Because I'm quite fiery and Steven. I found that a softer more gentle practices better for me so I was sort of resonate with a lot of the trauma. Informed teaches a few had on the show so like Joe. Buick may lie. Alice Hope Day. Who's now in Berlin and Hannah Institute Street Studio and I guess I'd also say that more recently. I find that I'm friends with a lot of my teachers. So yeah a lot of my friends. I find them winning from constantly. Physical practice or meditation or sound practice as well and speaking of sound practice. I know that you have a real love of kitten. Yes how did you? How did that develop? Yeah it's funny. I used to play piano when I was a kid that I never really read music so I sort of got to a certain point and I always love singing and I wouldn't say I was a particularly amazing on it but I would love to do it and I think a lot of us remember seeing at Church you know. My family went really religious but I didn't mind going to church and I used to actually choose to Gar as a teenager so I could participate in singing which I find quite funny looking back because I'm not really religious. Yeah and so I. I've been practicing yoga and I'd noticed a few teachers would sometimes sing chanting. Mantra or one of my teachers may lie. Would sometimes have a little organ harmonium gold and seen in Jovana but I always thought it was nice but it didn't blow me away until I was doing teacher training not so much to teach bought more that I had these thirst for knowledge and I. I found you couldn't really. I couldn't satisfy my need through. Normal classes meant so. I thought I'd do a teacher training purely to learn as much as good and my life was one of the teachers so we had four amazing humans on that teaching tame and and so we went mantras and the meaning and about the daddies and it was a timer is probably quite role and yeah I just completely fell in love with it. It was quite funny because I didn't really know much about it and singing songs in Sanskrit in Indian and so you know the literal meaning all of the time but yeah after the teacher training I basically went and bought a harmonium with an idea to teach myself and it was pretty clunky from the first year was pretty clunky. So it's probably been about two years now that I've been playing. That background with piano must have helped. Maybe a tiny bit but not a huge amount. I think if you know if you know music theory and you can read music would that yeah I mean I have a different story to a lot of people who lead kids on. Because a lot of people might have lived in an Ashram or had an experience like that where they've been surrounded by people in that way whereas I the spock was ignited and then I sort of decided to discover to be myself and self taught forbid which was. Yeah as a bit clunky. So now I have an amazing teacher just enter. I do voice in some harmonium. Sort of licenses and afloat take jaw and yeah it's just accelerated my my winning. Yeah and saw I. I have a few people that I play with regularly. And we play around Melvin And it's a joy it's really like an amazing community different ages and abilities and yeah just to cycle back to something that you mentioned. Elia. I'm really interested in this because some teaches really. Don't go into the meaning of the chance at all and other teachers really explore that side of it and see it as a really important part of the practice. Where are you at on that continuum? Yeah for me. I really like to know what it is that I'm seeing about and the meaning and I find that quite important to convey to people so I tried to try to explain the meaning if it's in a class well more often it's in a kitten so there is an opportunity to do that and I think it changes the way that you save it and that you participate in it because you actually can. That's something for you to sort of ponder while your singing together and saw. Yeah it's also it's just sort of a nice story to have for people to to share with other people and and also most of the chance. I have been shed to me by teacher or by a friend and so I also think it's important to honor that where it's come from. I guess also in respect to the tradition of yoga and yes walk. I'm a white woman sharing these devotional practices. And the way I can sort of justify the whack and best be really authentic about that is to share everything. That's been taught to me or everything I know about that with other people. Sanskrit is a funny language because it doesn't translate literally so it's more like it can be described more like feeling that's translated through the vibration of the sounds so sometimes people will have a slightly different translation or interpretation of

What analysts have to say about the Broncos' 2020 free agency haul

"Season let's talk about the the Broncos free agents that they could be doing a really really good job of posting up some video break down to the players that the Broncos have recently added it's giving people a chance to kind of get to know some of these players some of our our household names like Melvin Gordon but Graham Glasco certainly is not a household name I think for a lot of Broncos fans so maybe let's just let's call it back to the AJ Bouye a trade and what did you what do you think the Broncos got with AJ Bouye well I think first and foremost this is a life of Fangio's scheme fit to be T. at you know he's a he's a lanky guy he's got speed towards what I think of a cover three or mast cell type defense of financial likes to run he's a very smart player in terms of getting himself in position there was a place Sam Darnold you know the just like the run that post will route a lot they try to run it earlier in the game and you know I think they did a very good job communicating at their place band coverage there and boy a cover number one on the post pattern pretty decently late in the game they try to throw the same exact routes and boy they read it perfectly he gotten from the wide receiver and shielded him almost like a box out in terms of of a basketball type analogy here and he was able to go downfield to make a play on that post pattern intercepted returned about twenty six yards off enjoy downhill looks more guys in band you know Ryan you guys know this well but being around silty a lot more defensive back plays importance and I know that a lot of Broncos fans been clamored for a star name but look aged boy if he can recreate a little bit at twenty seventeen season any ad you know it's gonna be fully healthy corner to twenty twenty you can still be a guy that contributes massively in you don't have to have the most amount of telling your secondary if you got guys that are really smart that's one thing about how Justin Simmons involved fans your system I think Borges same type of player not just a bully a Simmons Jackie Jackie a Gaza border they're all intelligent guys and guys that are willing to hit is there anybody out there you see right now on the free agent market still left it maybe the Broncos could bring in and that the the defense the second or the kind of fits that mold you know I was thinking a lot about it you know one of the names that I think we've all talked about as principal tomorrow but with Chicago Bears releasing and he met all the time in the world to be able to sign in the fact they haven't done so just yet tells me that you're not interested or you're waiting for a few more things to happen in terms of you know Simmons and you may be full plans yet on off that extension's gonna happen now in the off season of this year but I feel like it may look more so in the NFL draft and no garlic Bryce Oliver junior I like him I am also an EC Roberson Adalat tech is one of the guys that still exonerated could be available maybe in the second third fourth round if this team really wants to look at that position are you mentioned earlier in the broadcast to kill will be called when we told him you know what the rockets could you never gets called PI so that might be a good idea to bring in in but also that for like the market outside is is pretty small you know there's like save your roads I feel like would be too pricey and I just don't see where he would fit right now and the Broncos can consider that they traded for boy name and they also re signed Vontae buys before I project in forty eight I'm gonna be the outside corners provincials defense this year so really at this point Thomas like the market right now has close for Denver on cornerback to like I said I think that could change at any point time considering if they make any roster moves to fix more space I think restructuring Callaghan's contract opens the door for maybe another mover to

Falcons could field an offense with 11 first-round draft picks

"So we had a truck a couple of signings by the Atlanta Falcons over the weekend right to pick up tight end Hayden Hurst from the Baltimore Ravens and they also acquired look Kwan Treadwell a former number one pick for the Minnesota Vikings yeah as the Atlanta falcons roster currently stands right now on offense alone just on offense they have a Levin former first round picks all of these former first round picks quarterback Matt Ryan first round pick Todd Gurley who sign when he was released first round pick Julio Jones first round pick Calvin Ridley first round pick the Quantrill first round pick Hayden Hurst first round pick left tackle Jake Matthews first round pick left guard James carpenter first round pick center Alex Mack former first round pick Chris Lindstrom the right guard former first round pick and right tackle Caleb McGary also that he first started his first round eleven is incredible let them all eleven of them a former first round pick I mean there's no way that's ever happened before right I can't believe that what ever but here's the real question if you had to redraft everyone of these players how many would be former first rounder this okay because I think this is fair Lidstrom McGarry and carpenter I've always been really what one or two years no it's been really since two thousand eleven okay yeah so let's remind me Gerry I think you were taken off or taken them out yeah okay so all of the other nine how many would be redrafted as a first round what's what's going on it's not right absolutely no question that runs for Todd Gurley no yeah I I would say no I would sit well I would say no one quite frankly his a conversation about the value of the position in general could also affect the new with him that was the thing coming out of college yes I look he has fifty eight rushing touchdowns over his first whatever seasons and all the other ones are either in the hall of Famer going let me just say six are we saying first rounder today or go back to the beginning again it would re drawing back to the beginning again because I'm currently the way Todd Gurley came out I mean would you not still take him in the first one that's the question now right are you going to pay for that kind of production from a running back anymore we saw Christian McCaffrey Leonard for net like there's been plenty examples of even a legal or not re signing a big second contract drafting a great one of the first round can still benefit you a lot okay I'm just trying to get to it you know is that what they've done in their right career does that mean where are the first roll worthy to me the girly thing is to your point he had a knee injury coming out of college and right when they signed with the red sign that long term deal with they're trying they got out of now then he was going to be chronic so to me the top group member he was the first one that airports reset the market for running backs and it turned out no he just re establish the old line of thinking but that first three years of production would you that would you spend a first round pick on that because we saw that rand's office how much in common now it always goes like this with the running game but in combination with an offense of line that did really well what you brought into what worth over would you pay for that as the foundation of your off I'm beginning to go the Melkite around here that I'm not sure running back as well because Melvin Gordon was in that same draft and Melvin Gordon is on his team I got an extreme I think that's the biggest conversation we could take out of this is the running back position record number mellow one point eighty never take a running back in the first Rana I wonder for we're slowly but surely going back to it I mean there was a contract a couple years ago with the first running back off the board was late second round out of Tennessee and I think we're going back to that after a bevy running backs being taken so we were definitely in on Matt Ryan yes we're out on Todd Gurley a legit is amazing looking back at Todd Gurley's draft class there's not a lot of got like if you're talking about reworking the top ten Todd Gurley might be the most wealthy in that group maybe outside of Amari Cooper yeah we can we can have that discussion later because that's in it read graphic I think is always fast and you have to wait a certain amount of time Julio Jones know quite well right Calvin Ridley first round too early again I think it's too early last year what he had sixty three receptions okay just under nine hundred okay seven touchdowns I would mean he also can't account for how bad that team ask me yes or no right now I'd say yes but I still think it might be too early Hayden Hurst no not because look they they took marketers later in the draft in the third round he clearly became the tight end of Baltimore which made Hayden Hurst by the way has taken in the first row before Lamar Jackson R. Jackson for Lamar starting you know tight on that team right now marketers you said right Hayden Hurst also dealt with some injuries and stuff there too that's okay in perfect sample size and when you have a guy come on like marquetry who could predict that the way that offense ended up of what he was the Mackey award winner a what he was coming home with one truck will no no Jake Matthews yes I think so I think so I think so do not I meet yeah yeah I mean yes he's been there he's been there is a second contract I also wrote a like doesn't miss a lot of games he's he's dependable yeah I think that's what it our printer are probably not I mean he's he's been a guy that's been in the league for nine years now dependable guy but we're talking about first round right you know I mean when you're twenty four we'll talk about for sure we're talking about top ten picks like a lot yeah yeah yeah I I'd probably lean toward no on that as well yeah yeah Alex Mack yeah absolutely yeah yeah and then the other than what we remember and I think Lidstrom would be headed in that direction yeah kill the guy who's more reach last year get killed the one I have questions about obviously we know the health concerns that existed before the draft earning a hard issue that he had had to deal with early in this time oxygen so there's a lot to hash out with those two but just I mean blows off the page when you just read that number the every single hundred dinners with that crew yeah what eleven Ryan still got its still on that ride to reach for the paycheck first but everyone else has to at least go for their wallets and act like there's also a common I do with you know with my dad so you got rid you got Ridley help you got got this R.

Talking Points

Dining with Singapore Airlines

"With us. We Have Anthony. Mcneill the global director of food and beverage at Singapore Airlines. Antony thank you so much for joining us now. Normally I would be worried about interviewing head of food and beverage for an airline because you know. Generally food on airplanes doesn't have a great reputation but Singapore has a completely different mindset when it comes to food and beverage. How would you describe your outlook on how you approach food at Singapore so we take a lot of emphasis on popular local favorite surfer in Singapore? We're looking for the most authentic dish in the Hawk markets if we're in the US we're looking for the most unique food and beverage items to the destinations that we fly to fly from a great example is Grew up in Seattle looking at sustainable seafood opportunities that we can tap into for air flights and then also looking for great organic produce. So he's we took a day trip down to Medford to look for the world's best cheese which was Announced last year with rogue creamery. So a lot of our competitors aren't as engaged market whether it be local sustainable but also supporting local communities to bring the best food and beverage opportunities to simple aliens. And let's just talk about your job. So in your purview. You've got in-flight for all classes of service you got lounges. You know the winds like what? Don't you do Well I we've got We've got lots under Irene and we always say that. If we shake the plane anything's fall. That would be the pilot and the Jet Fuel. Everything else belongs to inflight service delivery sir. That's everything from toilet paper newspapers all the way through Crewe Dom Perignon and Ted on Jay which joined US last year. So how does one become global director of food and beverage at an amazing airline like Singapore? Like all people at some point. They've gotta start somewhere so I started as a as a dishwasher and kitchen hand at an airport hotel some thirty two years ago and Melvin. And Yeah I worked my way through so I was still at school working during the week working on weekends. And then of course the did you study culinary management or a hospital studies culinary management. And then you know. Through the course of the years you know through hotels restaurants catering facilities and then eventually moved out of Australia to work. Overseas worked all over the all over the Walsh Lanka China for several years Hong Kong Malaysia Malaysia. For several years you know through number hotel organizations premium hotel organizations and of course catering institutions that supply airlines. And then of course I was invited to join a lodge practicing airlines and I was responsible for the global food and beverage development and also managing the Asia Pacific catering for that airline so you started in hotels big kitchens and set menus in big dining rooms. What was the biggest shock when you transition to providing meals on a metal or composite tube flying forty thousand feet in the sky the space and the height restrictions to pack a meal in-flight limits obviously opportunity to do overly creative high appetizers and called meals? But in the same focus. It's not much different to circulate. The goes into a restaurant. You have a certain amount of space you can work with. It comes in a foil kit and the crew. Help us to move from the foil onto a plate and or a casserole depending on which Kevin you you may be in. And there's a lot of science in the air our taste buds or doled historically in-flight meals are known to be salty. And what are the scientific reasons BECO- into the food that you serve on board. Yeah so a lot of what we do is look at authentically local recipes. So we look at what? The Chili pastes may be used for a Singapore Indonesia. Malaysia is the coconut milk. The right milk we're GONNA make sure the ingredients are right in the first place. The cooking techniques obviously important and in Singapore where we test and develop new dishes. We have a pressurized cabin. Which is I think. It's quite widely renowned with Singapore Airlines. Where we go in. We close the doors especially hyperbaric chamber. We bring the cabin to shoot. And then we we do the test in the cook and we taste so where we see opportunities to adjust the recipe from an authentic dish to match an inflight experience. That's where we do the modifications off the back of that. We need to make sure that you know we're securing the best produce and of course that we can deliver it exceptionally well through that in flood experience. Now we get a lot of questions about you know. Why did you taste buds change? What is Flavor Experience Change? And of course when you fly your sinuses dry out and that'll say impacts you your taste in your in your flavor profiles but the new generation of aircraft coming through the fifties eight hundred eighty s the seven eight sevens and obviously the new triple seven x which is coming on. Those cabinet arms have changed dramatically over time. And the introducing more humidity into the Kevin. Spacey pressure is at low altitude and that really allows us to give you a better dining experience a bit of drinking experience the program you know as we move forward you know. The legacy of old aircraft is slowly being retied so we can continue to focus on great. Well when you have a different because you still have some set triple seven's will you have a different menu for a triple seven than you will for an eighth? Hr Fifty or seventy seven. The Old Dominion of the same but again we also offer salt and pepper on our trees up. So if you feel the need to make the adjustment you can do it. And Tailor it to your. What are your absolute knows for an airline menu? Deep Fried foods generally just uncut it because obviously the ovens a combination of steam dry heat and of course the food. It's obviously best coming straight from a straight from the cook for that crunch value. You know I think that's probably really it and I think if everything else if it's manage well and cooked With the appropriate methods. We're in pretty good place. What is actually cooked on a plane versus precooked and heated is? You're still cooking. That goes on on a plane. I mean cooking in a sense you know. We don't have pots and pans and guess flames on on an Aircraft Galley but the ovens certainly designed to cook the meals to the next level. So women do the process of inflight catering. The chefs have to apply by seek food process. The have to apply the OUTTA guidelines and also local hygiene authority guidelines to coop the proteins to certain temperature control point. Then they come line. They go through blast chilling to be ready to be packed for in flight. So at that point that cooking on ground allows for the reheating of that stake for example to be cooked medium hoping to the center now. Of course we know when we fly the crew have to sit down. They may be turbulence ovens might be ten on in certain elements may impact your your meal experience but in general we get the right balance to get the meal onto your plate. You know in good order so you can enjoy it fish on a plane to. I'll get on a plane. I can't believe on instagram. How many people say that's repulsive? Didn't you see the movie airplane? This should never be served on a plane. Why people hate fish on a plane so much. I think it's a perception. Perhaps but we you know we sit in the go way to make sure we've got the right fish for inflight fish which is juicy you know retains it's moisture content. That might be caught on. But if you go back and you look at a at a New York locally Anthony. Bodine said years ago and he's book kitchen reservations. You should never eat fish on a Monday after the weekend. Sir You know. I think it's a little bit of apply I think in today's society the fishes fresh. It's best in its peak condition when we get it for in Flight We certainly treat it with respect that it deserves and of course another crew deliver exceptionally well. So neither commentary. You can fold taming economic outlook. Well it's probably from experiences not on Singapore Airlines if I had to guess is a high level. Trend are crafting more vegan options on traditional menus. Or is that still a special meals request that people should put in. I mean certainly Vegan is part of the special meal programming and a lot of our work that we do now without international culinary panel shifts can ranches that wellness pattern here in the US. We certainly give guidance to the chefs about how we see through trends moving into the marketplace by doing so we can tap into their local scene as well and not really understand whether it be Vegan over there be not free or so on how we can leverage that in-flight so I think as we move along deliciously wholesome. He's one about programs which has a number of vegan options but it's a constant evolution of movement so where we say transferring. We'll certainly move towards that but also we need to be respectful of passes experiences as well. You know another frustration people have in-flight is when you want to order the steak and they run out so. Singapore has for very long time had booked the cook so you can do it in advance but putting aside book the Cook for a second. How much do you use math? In determining how much food to load on a plane where it's incredibly complex depending on the sectors that we work with the demographic and And the passenger profile participation we fly and we use a lot of customer insight in customer engagement data to determine those lighting programs so we have a set ratio of meals in structure and of course where we are the Singapore luxuries most popular. We might fly. A high percentage of that way. Stake is perhaps not so popular as an example on an Indian sector. We would learn steak so of course at some point. You may be disappointed that we can't give you the the the meal of your choice. But we certainly try to endeavour to make sure that the loading is right if we see An increase ivory peak of travel holiday season for example we may learn more of one and reduce one of another but it's a constantly evolving patents are crew also give feedback on customer preferences and where we need to adjust. Accordingly will do

Density in films Monty Python and the Holy Grail joke density. Some of them are esoteric. Holy Grail is just the same kind of thing life. Life of Brian doesn't is is. I think a better movie Joel and never been fond of it for that. Very reason is telling a story all the Woody Allen Love and death not his most famous but the most of those early constant data sleeper. The ones everyone just being wall to wall jokes is is just take their great but if you were to take the first half of the movie of what I'm about to say joke density raising Arizona.

We've all been sick and tired. I thirty minutes of tar as successfully jokes as as any movie ever made. Okay but number five box. No I made seventy million dollars Robert Aggress it's a sequel to I think somewhat surprising success Starts on the road warrior. Oh Shit I don't know the answer. I mean not a bad guess. Yeah okay. Someone surprises actually the year of mad. Max One but it but is it that type of sort of no sequel explodes successor was the first one versus one okay somewhat but this still did well somewhat. This is the kind of movie that if you took took a twenty two year old sat him down and said this movie existed they would steer you in the face and say like. There's absolutely no way that we were talking about cannonball run to like think that but but stupid bird. Is it a burt number. Is it that kind of movie star. Though you said it's a big star. He was a big star. Would argue a bigger star. One of the ten most Bama's Hollywood stars in history. She really right yes. I think it's not the bad news. Bears Sequel something like that stupider stupider stupider keep digging right hold on because I can get stupid. But the but the main star return for the sequel he does. The sequel has major drop off on the first one the first one made like a hundred hundred and seventy happy. He was a big star already but the movie was still surprised he was. He had been a big star for twenty years. He'll be a big star for thirty. Moore's Silimar he is how old now it's not a by old man wasn't abundant. No no no no. It was far stupider sufferings connection to know over. That's what I'll I'll tell you like smoking. The bandit to is number eight. You know you have a couple of Cheech and Chong's next movie I was GonNa say maybe feel. Can you give me his Janjua. Is it a comedy. Yeah like an action. Competent Action Action Action humongous longest star. Ben Has tapped our producer Rachel walking in a cup of coffee. Perfect hand off Rachel quickly. What's the eighth straight? No no okay okay never mind. I'm trying to get them to get this moving. Do you know this movie Rachel. Okay okay to be fair. Have you heard of this the movie that is the original now. We know it's not this call taste. Do you think Holy Shit. I can't believe this is a movie starring. This person in this thing. Rachel's Louis reaction when it turns red so racial deadpan. And she's plus and you say this actor had been around for twenty years so he'd been around since the sixties fifties late fifties. I think he's he's like middle aged at this point. I mean he's not sure. A young rapper snapper. It is funny that he made a movie the on this subject and then it was a surprise. Success put his age around fifty six fifty. The story of the original one apparently is like it's a scripted. have been sort of passed around around town and this was just like I think it's funny. Let's do it as a big hit. And then they made a sequel. It was the fifth highest grossing film of Nineteen. Eighty the phone. I don't think so over films like Paul Private Benjamin. Yeah Commander's daughter Blue Lagoon. Blues Brother's ordinary people. Popeye big move urban cowboy the a shining nine hundred ninety two thirteen was this the last film in this series I believe so they made it all right last question. Let's clue what what year did the first one come out seventy eight so just is. They're striking while the iron is hot is it. Is it a boy. I'm just thinking about how hard Rachel laughed. Can you believe this person was in a movie about this. It's someone that everybody knows everybody. Conic Rachel. Okay I was laughing at the post post chorus but I'm trying to think of Coaster Wild Cat hell what the movie is about fro. I think I know exactly what it is is it. Oh God part to incorrect close right. Yeah that would have been good now still alive. What's the initials of the star? See Charlie Clint Eastwood any which way any which way candy which way you can the sequel to every which way which way you're right Eastwood House around with ring. You're right the movie that I feel like the world's dumbest person I mean one of those things. Apparently he saw this group of the first one. WHO's like it's funny? We'll do that was treated like Ted. Like what the fuck are you doing your allies cookie now. I'm so depressed I mean maybe maybe up until that point his hi skirts and film. I'd probably probably right up there for the first one's better than the second and and I believe the first one's pretty damn good well when I was a kid and was trailing like understand film history and they would do montages. We'll get some lifetime. Achievement award the Golden Globes or whatever and they would play the clip. I be like Oh. That's like the Disaster Astros. He's embarrassed parents would be like no. It was like a huge hate and he defends it still go to ring. Attain was hilarious. Yeah I was not allowed to watch that movie because my mother said it was too violent. Sexual isn't a ton nudity. In that movie the time there it was. Oh I think you're thinking of the gauntlet but never wears pants hanging. But there is a lot of fighting bare knuckle brawl because it's Fresno there in downtown. I'm Fresno Bakersfield. Maybe I should reboot that franchise is it time. What's his name in that movie? I don't fucking collide Reagan Agatig Clyde. What's Eastwood's name that? Let me look it up. I WanNa be the Mutt Williams. So Oh boy Oh yes roof. Gordon plays a character called Zubi in yes of course I even remember him like in the nineties doing interviews and they'd be like any chance you ever like round out the trilogy. You should be too old but I'd love to finish doing. He should make his last film to be. It's definitely not richer Joel. He's already in production movie. Never be finished in five minutes. You tell me Clyde over sully so well. He's not in sully I'm saying is an act. A fourth season insulting guy rephrase thumbprint masterpiece masterpiece. Please this is a sully safe Solo Solo. You kidding me not ridden on an airplane sin. Sullied have not thought about every moment of that movie. I've said a lot of things on this podcast I regret. I've grown five years of my development as a man and then my mind and all these things go cultures changed around us. You know I believe in transparency but there are things I would script from history if I could earlier when I use the C word. Could you hear that in the offices. Rachel yelling yeah okay good. They didn't hear things like the scrub from history. The number one greatest embarrassment in the history of the podcast for me is that sully was not in my top ten that year. Wow because I gave her win for best actor and I left sully at like eleven or twelve and that was shame and I med read. It was a masterpiece. I said so solely five letters that spell America but I still said it's not worth you making the ten am sure at my top five with solid but at the very least sully should have been somewhere between five and ten number ten and I guarantee you there are some fucking Tony respectable movies that that I genuinely like less than sully but I put in there because of the ground swell or like some Michael Hannigan movie. Yeah Yeah I guarantee you. There's something like that where sully should have been all ten spots on my list. It is the movie I watched so much five or six times so many times. It's so good it's a forced water it it is a force my My in laws are marvelous people but are in their late seventies. Early Eighties They come in look after our cat.

"In their. Finish Youtuber to each other. Nonsense I'm in the trenches the point I want to make to you gentlemen. Is I walk. Seventeen miles of the snow I seen the ending. Wow Elvin Howard five million Ryan Times. Yeah I've seen the last two minutes of that film more than any other movie at every staff and it took me until maybe three years ago to actually watch them. Yeah Yeah See I. My father loved this movie and my father in upcoming guests on the show we have the banks. It's quite a barn burner if if you like monologues by Jewish men is we just got great one right it is generally ask hour and a half long monologue by my father. Talking about spalding gray. It also will explain a lot of my brain. Yes and also why we're friends which all sort of rakes. Yeah you see the similarities between my father and my ever Lucien of new line that Ben wanted to blow and then calls US Beta Cox. Yeah but they're my father talks about in the episode that he was not a big movie guy. Despite working they are tame ministry which was sort of something he fell into did not I want to do. After many other careers had failed him at that point So I would always ask. My Dad was his favorite movies. Where because I only care about movies. There were the only thing I wanted to talk about. I'm like my dad. Works in the movie business. He must love them and he'd be like not really but the movies he would tell me he loved were. I mean this is kind of my dad's favorite type of movie sure. which is this very very sort of Seemingly slight small well observed human story with just a little bit of an odd bent and he would describe movies to me as a child where I'd go. What's that about? I think. Melvin Howard Hollywood movies. What's that about? And the way he would describe it to me would Seem so odd that it would stick in my mind for years and years and years before I ever saw them. We Brewster mccloud was another one like this where I'd go. What's the movie about? And he would say it's it's about this guy who's just kind of loser and he picks up an old man on the side of the road and it turns out to be Howard Hughes and he leaves him one hundred and sixty million dollars so he goes to the movies about him getting really rich at a nowhere and he was like no that happens at the very end the movie is just kind of the guy living his life and I would think I don't understand how that's a movie so it must be good? That would be my take away when I was. That's what made it seem magical to me. I was like whatever happens. Pins in the middle stretch of that movie. See Right incredible setup an amazing ending. There must be something so well executed. Because I don't understand how that can sustain ninety minutes you know and so would hold the sort of mythical place in my brain of what is this movie and it just sort of felt like I have in my head this sort flake. The folklore version of a laugh. A minute you know thrills and chills and you see it's kind of a shaggy dog must have been somewhat Shaggy Jaggi because you know the the inciting incident then takes an hour and a half to play out where I was like. There aren't hijinks tied to the Big Hook of the movie in order for that movie to be that good. Something has to be done so well in area that you're not even describing to me. That's what was Kinda magical talk about. I guess was that he couldn't describe what happened. In the whole Middle Chunk of the movie it would be hard to describe. I mean how would you describe it. It's like just kind of life. He's got the one wife and kids. ALZA party gets another wife actually kind of tries to make big a couple of times like brushes up against so you know tiny bits of man for a little while right good milkman. A bit like it's just been Yeti and sort of this and that the other movie that's sort of like this for me is terms of endearment. Why feel like everyone remembers the beginning? The humongous watches that movie. And it's like isn't this movie about someone getting cancer and dying and it's like no only right at the end. She gets cancer in the last ten minutes. Mostly it's just about her life mostly it's just about her life and different relationship. She has all these different things right. And it's like well that's the real meat of the thing but that's the hard thing to explain so everyone reduces it to right. What's the setup overbearing mother? What's the end cancer weepy? What's the setup this beautiful sort of meeting between You know nothing man and billionaire right. And what's the end he gets the will you know for like a second but knowing never but it's it's the same thing and that's like you talk about. What makes a good director what makes a good screenplay? What makes a good performance? It's all this stuff in the middle and the middle is ninety five percent of the movie is so gripping and so engaging and so emotional and there's there's no way to explain why it is because it's all just done well it's well observed you know it's done with like an incredible amount of intelligence and craft aft and also has like weird twists that you go with like yeah. They're watching a game show and he's like we should go on the game and then they go on the game show which is which is based in fact right. That's in the wikipedia page but it is. I mean it's a stranger than than truth story of what all the weird things this guy went through that he got married twice on the second time time was in Vegas to his wife who had left him got pregnant by another man. You know good that I relate to this character. Oh totally yeah I mean I think that's what I guess. The ultimate cash in on this movie is this is sort of the Goldman blank check. Because he had done Cuckoo's nest won the Oscar screenwriters and I do think this was his big pet project project he wins another Oscar for the screenplay but I think much like Ebert guess this was such a big news story that probably everyone was. How do you make a movie movie out of the lawsuit? How do you make a movie out of the trial right? He ignored that title card at the end. It's still under content which it was until two thousand six. It was still being contested. Ask someone wrote a book in the nineties. He sued again in the two. Thousands died just a year ago. A whole problem was that was never a real so it could they could just kind of drag drag it out forever right. This is the only thing the reason purporting was even purporting to be a very compelling narrative on both sides which were Hughes's people were saying then why would he leave it to this guy. This thing is riddled with spelling errors. It has a bunch of things that don't line up with his life. Why would he leave money to this guy this stuff that anyone could have researched in a book his wife? I've had access to all these documents. She could have copied his signature all this stuff and on Melvin side. It's like these guys wanted that money for themselves right right. They didn't WANNA give it up to some fucking guy. They never heard of me to stop funding the wonderful reality of this movie but he definitely made the wheel. It's like the evidence it gets if it's completely damning and there's no evidence that he that he would you read about this book though. That book is ludicrous. It has the most insane circumstantial like yeah. Well this one Guy Kinda saw him go to the sand one time like it's not very good. Also that Hughes had told other people about yeah. Yeah sure maybe he met Howard News. Yeah right whilst you have the idea of four refuses. Howard Hughes's will look? I think he probably made the will. But that is the beauty of this movie movie which is why not make a story about that being real. That's that's what I love about this. Moving right yeah. You don't really have to think about the real guys real this movies about the guy who actually got this you know they just said well yeah right. I'm doing a little research. I think Melvin himself MM self was on. Let's make it. They change it for the movie. It's not. Let's make a deal. It's the pathway to riches or something What's it called? Not a road to riches easy streets easy street with the dollar sign instead of that's what it is but I think he was on. He was literally on. Let's let's make. Yeah yeah something like that but I think he was on more than once or he was a multiple a great. It's a great scheme game shows. There was a little stretch of my life when I saw game shows. It was my my my window into Fortune really yeah. I was on a game show which game show I will offer so I was almost on jeopardy. Okay and I would've would've guessed you seem like you'd kill had a disaster of time when I made it past one does not simply walk into jeopardy mm-hmm but I screwed up. I could not remember John Grisham. 's name John. Grisham is not exactly Esoteric Fella quite famous especially and I could see his dumb books in my head. I could see you can feel the Lamar by half the pages. Sean Chris I saw you know frigging crews in the firm coaster greatest film of all. This is not that good to firm interesting opinion out and then I just and then I was done knocked me out because he went to get past that sort of the final audition fast. What game show where I was born a show very relevant I was on a show called the What was the exact title? The all the were were. What was it called? The Great American film fanatic or something like that. The world's biggest film fanatic or it wasn't it was at the. IFC Chris Gore. I know I watched every episode of that. Then you saw me. I definitely did. I was first season and I won my semi final one five grand and that's when I decided ride. It was that night in Los Angeles and it was funny because I was I. I'm from New York.

"Year all three performances with Less Than Fifteen Jeanne mance screen time sure very firecracker. There was something kind of incredible about a small amount of Jason robards while the he didn't get Magnolia nomination I guess just sorta eight that so yeah yeah but he is phenomenal. Magnolia is I mean he is what that movie is which is over the fucking top but items titles. David did you like Melvin and Howard. We heard how'd you seen it before. I think years I had sort of the same thing Larry Foggy memory in my Oscar nerd teenager days I was like well I should see the movie that Mary Steenburgen on four. I remember watching it and being like I don't get it. It's like you when you're a teenager like no one's going. This is good like I might seem so quiet and like I like big moment. I don't really get it. I probably watched it on table while doing homework completion. I would hate homework so much. I would be like you have to either rent or like record any any movie that feels important knowledge obviously Oscar history and watch them all. You're doing homework doing homework. Doesn't feel like a waste of uh-huh why wasted my whole philosophical argument was doing. Homework is a waste of my time. I could be watching movies. David Demi is this guy who had made this one great movie otherwise this was more of a journeyman. Like I don't think I took Demi especially serious you like silence a lens and that's it I mean I like other move but like I feel like teenage tourists right. Oh brain was not the way he made all these weird goofy comedy or making a serious movie but this is real very rob is another one on. TB of movie. I liked a lot. Yes but eighty to ninety ninety. Is this incredible. two-run of comedies. Unlike anything anyone's ever made all right asked me if I've seen this movie before. George have you seen this before.

"Devante Freeman takes on Tennessee this week binder sell tin plus fantasy points last week. Get Eleven. We did it. devante sort of I mean look the usage was way up. However veto Smith suffered a concussion in that game and we saw devante Freeman snaps rise to over ninety percent when the previous week he had played on just sixty two percent so so a good or bad thing that he produced eleven fantasy points on ninety two percents now that is a bad thing? I mean you would assume that if devante freeman he was he was efficient right. He was over like five and a half airy. He was sixteen for Eighty Eight. He had four targets again in three receptions. However on those three receptions he only managed seven even receiving yards it now? That was a good defense against the I think the colts are a pretty good defense but this week Tennessee is also a very good defense when Edo Smith got knocked out it wasn't midway through the Edo. Smith played less than five percent of the snaps so this became devante Freeman show. I think if ITO's Smith isn't out of concussion protocol. You're going to have another backup. Step up into the role and so I would say I'm taking the under on Devante Freeman. I'll take I'll take over because it's a low line. I mean I I'll take the eleven point so I think he can put that up Atlanta. You know we just we just looked at a chart that kyle our editor in chief. We've produced this morning. I don't know if you gentlemen amazing. It's the difference between twenty eight and twenty nineteen percentage of pass plays on an offense and also also shows the difference for example Minnesota minus twenty five percent. That's the difference last year. They passed sixty four percent of the time through three games. They're passing housing thirty eight percent of the time that is insane. However Atlanta is actually up five percent through three game sixty five percent of the time last year which is already a lot there? They're at seventy percent this year throwing the ball so you've said this before. The freemen needs to be involved in the passing game to have the right kind of value. He's not being unused enough and and they're not running the ball very much. It's before targets. The game is it's nothing to sneeze at. We we were hoping for more for Freeman but the offense still high powered Matt Ryan is averaging basically three passing touchdowns a game the line at eleven points aides it. It's Freeman get a rushing touchdown finally and it's certainly possible that the the matchup is not great but I will buy a will buy that line because it's just that's that's forty yards and a touchdown buy or sell Calvin Ridley with the down week by I buy that he had down a week back to six x plus targets. Do you think he gets back to six plus targets. Only one target last week. Jason enjoyed the Monday Monday contribution of Ridley squad Italy squat. I I do think he gets battle by I he will be on the course of the season the clear number two wide receiver here. I think six targets is a reasonable oh outcome for him and yeah I think he gets back on rollers. I'm going to sell to sell Mike you bought it. I did Greg Olsen against Houston and six catches and sixty yards. Are you buying or selling six and sixty. If you look at target numbers through three games at the imposition Greg Olsen outpacing towards kettle so cigarette six sixty six he is old man's strengthened all over the place. He's been pretty solid awed at least the past two weeks. The line is six for sixty which he has hit the past two weeks. I'm going to buy man. They'll keep it going. I think he's a wonderful you know option for Allen in the passing game I am going to sell. I think that while Kyle Allen did great it was gets Arizona who is notoriously bad against tight ends so far on the season every single week the tight end has crushed them and now they're going up against Houston who is only given up four point eight fantasy points per game in the first three weeks to the tight end position so I will. I will say not this week Greg Yeah. That's a really good line to set there I'm going to sell I think it'll be very close but I'm going to sell Jameis Winston at least two passing touchdowns against the rams week weeks weeks one and two. You only had one obviously last week. He had three all to the big tall guy. Mike have so what a great eight nicknamed I used to say all the time about cardinals quarterbacks like if you just throw it to the big long haired guy. Yes you know Larry Fitzgerald. You're GONNA do better with you know for yourself but Winston figured it out right through the ball up to Mike Evans and it ended up in three passing touchdowns. Do you think we'll get to this make all by two they can do to why not it's such it's such a tough thing because I don't know what to make of the Rams ems defense so far this year but I write they seem really good. I don't know how much was Baker and the browser their office of lied big just really bad or how much was the rams defense but I think I'm going to sell even though this seems like okay. The rams are going to score the buccaneers. Ears are gonNA come back and have to throw a lot. They just haven't been beaten through the air so far all right that was by herself from Pristine Auction Pristine auction dot com use the code ballers and you can get get access to a five dollar discount on your first sports memorabilia purchase today on the wall. We've got Davante. Adams signed Jersey on. I like it Brooks. I like like like the confidence Bush while the shot in the arm worked for Mike Evans last week yes it did so. Maybe you're welcome America for Devante Adams this week. Let's get into the news news notes from around the League presented advice sleeper all right the morning started started with Adam schefter talking about Melvin Gordon's hold out and then it could soon be coming to an end no final decisions have been made but per league sources he may be returning into the team soon he planned on October might be moving up and then Ian Rapoport tweeted out that he basically re tweeted another tweet saying thing that could end as soon as Thursday so this today this keeps escalating rapidly because we all want control in our lives Mike and so we set arbitrary date so that we control things a chance. That's what Melvin is doing. Control has worked the good news the good news according to his instagram is that he has been working out on a treadmill with his helmet on so he should be ready to go right. Hey Jew Jew his credit now that we have this real helmet here on our set we all put it on. I've never taken a snap in my life holy crap a helmet is super heavy. My weak frail neck could could barely keep it. That's why we've always said we want them mm to run the forty with a helmet yes and pads but you know doing football. It makes so much sense and I would love to see the disparity. Have everybody run the forty just like you normally do oh everybody run it in pads and see if the same people are on top if they are all in the exact same order. You don't need to do this anymore. Years Yeah just a warrant our trial. We'll see how it goes like. Dove and Cook would be like Oh my God what without pads fast with pads Byron comparison to the people around him yeah so I do Wanna a break down what this looks like for Austin. Ecuador of Melvin Gordon comes back because maybe it's not even if it's this week rappaport said he's not expected to play even if he showed up tomorrow right yeah so the earliest he'd play would be like October six against the broncos so eh clerks should be the guy that you want to start this week and we've said Justin Jackson could be a start as well or at least a flex play but win. Gordon comes back. You know this news is out there now. You don't get to cash in on Ecuador anymore and and so what are the options for fantasy owners I looked at last year. He finished the year twenty seven at the position so outside of the RB to range he had had one finish last year inside the top ten and was week one of the week one. He went ham that week and then he had six other finishes last season season as an rb one or rb to and they were fringe rb ones there were like ten ten and then other rb to finishes so for me when I look at what this looks. It's like with Gordon coming back. I think Austin echoes value is probably rb to until Gordon reestablishes over a couple of weeks and then he's you know he's an rv three for me with rb to upside what you guys thing. I completely agree with that assessment. He is he's a weekly type of Affleck's play once we're assuming that Melvin Gordon is handed that job pretty quickly but with his skill set and the way that they use running back on there he can hit a big play on on weekly near weekly basis so he becomes a flex play in your you are correct Andy like let's say you have often right now because this is all still were in the land of rumors and whispers from the bushes. We don't know for sure that Melvin Gordon is coming back as soon as tomorrow. Maybe doesn't come back next week. I remember playing this game last last year with Levy on bell where these very respected verified sources of Schefter and rappaport there were tweeting okay. There's we've we've got inside. Sources Levian bells coming back this week up. He didn't come back okay. My source now says it will not be later than this date and of course eleven about didn't show up so if you have Equa right now. Are you trying to scrape. Whatever little value is out there or are you just holding on for the ride you? I don't think you could trade equitor for much right now. I think you have to hold on for the ride. If you wanted to try to go out as EQUA owner and trade for Melvin Gordon you could try but probably with this news. You'RE NOT GONNA be able to get him for anything but top dollar. Let me see the other. The other side is reverse that in go out go to the Melvin Gordon owner and say hey will you pay me top dollar for dollar because then you have him and then he's you're handcuffed but again I'm not I'm not actually actively shopping in because I think I'm going to get a week or two of top tier. Value Out of him and there is a narrative here that I can. I can find signed. We're apple or has a little bit better value than he did last year. You know you do not have Antonio Gates or Hunter Henry. You have a banged up Travis Benjamin you have a low target. Get Volume Mike Williams right now and high target volume Keenan Allen so there there may be a little bit more room for consistency in the passing game for US necker and he's been the guy in camping not been the guy holding out and been committed to the team so there could be a little bit more lasting staying power to actor than we've and believe so hypothetically though if someone else has austin actor and they were offered a trade of miles sanders either willful or John Ross show that it does hypothetic should that person except that trait absolutely not so you can have John Ross and miles sanders right for us and that no I think it's interesting wow I do not know I think Austin season-long values greater sign miles sanders right now and you know you're. You'RE GONNA be trained to for to you. GotTa drop somebody to do that trade if you're glowing. I'm on the No side Jason. You're on the interesting side on this somewhat. I mean it's not like Awesome Act cler while he well he could be a flex play when Melvin Gordon goes back. It's not like he's just an automatic. Every week is going to be fine..

"Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. Welcome back the N._F._l.. chargers star running back once new money or no football is entering the fifth year of his rookie deal worth up to five point six million dollars just over that it is so as borden presses down on the charges are Adam Shepherd all over this story and now we have the latest referendum on the value of a running back in the N._F._l.. Melvin Gordon believes that he deserves to be paid amongst the highest paid running backs in the game right there with Todd Gurley and David Johnson and Levian bell the chargers believe that they are willing to pay Melvin Gordon but up to a certain limit. They think that he is import in their locker room. He is valued on the football field but they've assigned a price that is way different than the one that Melvin Gordon has of himself right now and so that's the standoff as we speak and as we get ready for training camp to open in the next ten days it's up to both sides to try to figure out a way to bridge their differences and see if they can resolve them if they can't Melvin Gordon won't be training camp and he will be demanding a trait and that will open up the other the question of what markets teams make sense for Melvin Gordon to wind up at but these two sides now must figure out a solution to what is a headache and really the latest referendum on the value of an N._F._l.. Running Back Adam thank you very much as we speak on holding out from football we have puzzle piece number one to a late-season role on corey been on this one per minute Darlington Robbie confirmed at Tom.

"Guys that didn't right hold this against note with Gordon. I think is ridiculous and the chargers. We'll try to do it but that's an absurd use of negotiating. The charges will try to do it and negotiating leverage. This is what this is what all this is charges will say hey no. You can't have that Girlie girlie. That's a bad investment and Gordon will say you know my five point. Six is too alive so it's all they want him back and he wants to stay. There's a number they can get to that had that's important for people who are watching to understand but if they don't if there's a number beyond which the chargers won't go for running back no matter who you are and he wants more than that then. I think that's where it gets and we don't have those numbers. We've got one thing when you hear Melvin side saying that it was insulting offer. We don't know what the numbers were. We don't know if he's asking for you know to be the highest paid running back ever July eleventh. It's almost all right. Let's wash it back in the man who's been all over this story one time back in because he was all over this you gotta remember that he was a first round picks that fifth year option now exists. Let's get schefter back in so how did we get here at simplest forms. How do you think we got your Adam with Gordon? We'll we'll jack very simply. Melvin Gordon knows that he's headed into that fifth year option at five point six million dollars. He's been angling for a new deal this off season and the talks with Melvin Gordon's agents Fletcher Smith and Damaris Bilbo did not go the way played that the Melvin Gordon camp had hoped and because the talks went on for as long as they did and didn't produce anything the Melvin Gordon camp felt it was imperative to make public solit- everybody knowing advanced training camp that they're not going to training camp without a new contract which at this point time Jack he's not on the horizon and if there's no new deal than building board is going to ask to be treated now again. We bring up that fifth year option and it's interesting because the N._F._l.. And the N._F._l.. Players Association are now getting into talks over new collective bargaining agreement and I think the one thing that the players side has to get in the next round of talks is a deal without a fifth year player option which again works against building board in this particular case because otherwise otherwise he would be a free agent and might have had the chance to be paid look he wants to be paid right now. Along the lines of Todd Gurley or David Johnson or Levian bell the charges you two different way they view it looks we value him and we want to pay him and we've made him offers but we had not made him an offer that basically makes him happy and puts him into the category that he wants to be put in and it's up to both sides really to figure out a way to bridge their differences differences in the remaining days before training camp war as jeff Saturday nose into the first couple of weeks of training camp so that they could get Melvin Gordon because if he's not there whether or not you agree with his stance whether or not you agree with the team stance that's going to impact packed the other players in the locker room and how they view the organization so it's up to all sides to figure out a way to get this done or if they can't get it done to move onto trade partner for Melvin Gordon who obviously is determined to land that long-term term deal now that puts him more along the lines of the top running backs in the League shefty awesome stuff. We really appreciate all that so let's get to this rivers turns thirty eight years old this year that is a little bit older. Maybe not quite as old as it used to be. quarterback terms yes but how important is it to have Gordon so that they can capitalize on the super bowl window on his huge. I mean I honestly think that it should impact. I mean you have to be so so delivered about this. If you're TOSCO general manager doesn't want to put conditions ends on when he signs a guy and why but when you look at the situation that.

He is looking for a big payday or things may get interesting worth mentioning Gordon skipped most of the off season but data tan mandatory minicamps as we do just about everything gets interesting. Let's welcome at Adam Schefter so by phone Adam you wrote this store. You've been all over at what is going on right now. With Melvin Gordon Well Jack this is really a nother and the latest referendum on the value of running backs because the chargers Melvin Gordon have negotiated negotiated to try to get a new deal done but are nowhere close to reaching an agreement at this point in time and because they're so far park because they value Melvin Gordon in different ways Melvin Gordon decided to take the steps and make it public today that he's not going to training camp without a new contract and if he doesn't have that new contract that he's going to demand a trade to another team so let your imagination run wild begin to picture which teams would would be interested in making a play Melvin Gordon imagine what the chargers Backfield and offense would look like without loathing Gordon but that really gets past the initial foundational issue which is can they get inside to a new contract..

"Wrapping up April here revision path by talking with design evangelist Melvin hail. Let's start the show. All right. So tell us who you are what you do there. My name is Melvyn hail. I am a product designer at Facebook been here for short while previous to that. I would design lead on Google maps and spend a little time on YouTube as well. But in the design industry for quite a while and live in beautiful, sunny, California. Now have to ask about Facebook will one they're a sponsor of the show. We've had you know, product designers from Facebook on the show before as well. But I'm curious with you kind of just being there in this new capacity. What's it? What's it like for you? I mean, especially coming from the history that you have what is it like working at a company like Facebook. It's refreshing a never charted this out in my career even lending it Google was never in the charts. It was never planned. It was all. Kind of going with what the universe said this is where you need to be. And I remember coming here and seeing the team in meeting, you know, the different design lead directors it felt like home and. Country to people by read in the news. And you know, there's been some negative press. There are a group of passionate individuals here that are trying their best to do right, by the user. But right do right by consumers and the experience to make sure that it is all cohesive in that we are transparent. And that the platform is delightful to use that that's the number one thing. I love about being here. Designed is integral to the platform. Everything that we do here revolves around good quality design. Excellent execution and well thought out ideas now soccer being that kind of refreshing change in terms of what you've just spoken on. How is it different from some of the other places that you've worked particularly out there in the valley? How's it been different that the biggest difference? I can definitely say. Jay is the emphasis on design. Facebook is not engineering lead. There is a heavy emphasis put on design in 'execution and quality in craft those elements make up the bedrock of the experience here at Facebook. You're looking for a company that's more driven by genera and capabilities in utility was not necessarily Facebook. Facebook to goal is to push the boundaries of what is possible design in stretch engineering to push and make new things. So it's it's fascinating to see was being done here. You know, you can look at look back in in the past at paper that I launched and in order to make that product of success. They built a prototyping tool. Tell bring. Concept to live now, while paper no longer exists that prototyping tool has evolved into a very powerful use within the organization and outside. So. The company has always pushing the envelope in a find that fascinating. Very cool. Very cool. So you're out in Sunnyvale right now. But you're also originally from California is that right from a little bit further south is that right? Yeah. Well, actually further north. Yes. Blamed for the north. Oh, that's right. You're in Sunnyvale from Vallejo. J O. Familiar with why I spent a summer in San Francisco when I was like nineteen and I think we went like all up and down the bay. So I've heard about Vallejo. But why don't you describe Vallejo for the audience like what was it like for you growing up there? Oh, man. Vallejo. Set the tone for what I believed America could be or what America was which was a melting pot of cold series. In working grads middle class Americans doing their thing. And it didn't matter your race or gender. Anything is long as you were down. No one really cared. You know, had had bra from all walks of life. And we had a great time..

You can see why he took a team that had the lowest payroll in major league baseball on opening day into them to the postseason. Not the playoffs the postseason, and you know, what let's just get to it. Let's just get to it. Yes. Well, I also wanna say there's a reason that we we kind of that that we did kind of isolate and pick Bob Melvin one because he's the manager of the year, we feel like the winter meetings or a place where having never been there. We wanted to give the listeners perspective from somebody who not only is in a pretty cool position. Because he's been to these things as a player before he's now having been there again multiple times ISM manager, but he's a manager in a different since in a very different organization where he's communicating through statistics with front office. He's also relaying that message to the players so trying to see how this goes down through the lens of somebody who's kind of you'd it through multiple scopes like that's that was also the approach, and that's kind of. That's what I feel like Bono offered us so chew on it. Okay. Bob. Melvin. We are here live with my manager corrobos your two thousand eighteen manager of the year.

But you know, what people don't realize the last two times me, and you were in Cleveland Browns stadium together, we want to know, I don't realize that actually that's you should like it was twenty sixteen charges game on New Year's Eve, and then this past Sunday to falcon so Tomahawk is always a thing is just everyone else's finally getting benefit including the Cleveland Browns. But you're right. We have a huge show. We got Melvin Ingram who be calling it. We've got. Our guy Eric wet. Oh of the Baltimore Ravens. Always a fun guy. They caught us on the show. So we're going to finally let them open up the phone lines and stuff all to ourselves. We also got a lot of news that's popping up czar. Why don't you just take us right into it? Should we ask how you doing? No, that's not important. Don't worry about me. That's what I was thinking. I just didn't want to live. And I'm glad you said it so. And I appreciate you checking in on me like that. It's really my friends or for our guys. Well, let's just get right into it. Because your former coach hue Jackson is back in the news. Because as of today, he is officially the let me make sure I'm getting this title, right? He is these special assistant to the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals whatever that means. And you know, what else guys Brown's got a buy this week and then they play in Cincinnati to following weekend. What were your thoughts on the news at Hugh Jackson is returning to really the place that sort of made him a a hot head coaching commodity before what happened with the Cleveland Browns. I don't think people realize how good a friends Jackson Marvin Lewis are were have been if you just look at their like relationship there coaching relationship overtime. It will tell you. They're not just acquaintances. They are like real life BFF's. So as soon as the bras, let them go I knew and I thought everyone going to coach for the best. This isn't it wasn't. If it was. I guess it was one hundred percent going to happen. And here we are. It's smart on their points to have done that puck. I don't know about you. But this is the least surprising thing that has happened this NFL season, but has received the most amount of fan shock and awe. I did a bunch of radio shows us morning. And I just couldn't believe that. All these people were surprised that Hugh Jackson just got hired by the Bengals first of all he's getting paid by the Browns. So Mike Brown doesn't have to open up his checkbook, which as we all know, Mike Brown's happy when he gets something for free. He's cheaper than me somehow. So it's not a surprise. Secondly, he knows everything there is to be about Browns roster the offense the defense, and he can easily be a huge asset for Marvin on top of the fact that that's where he came from. And here's a huge friend of Marvin..
