"Everyone know you won. Do something about these judges. Bro, forget to judge. You won the fight. Take it as a W, all right? And you did nothing stupid. You didn't put yourself into a heel hook. Okay, you didn't. Yeah, it seems like I'm getting better, right? Yeah. You're not fucking clicking. You're not winning. 14 minutes and 59 seconds of every fight, and then the last second, you're like, hey, to break my arm. Okay, seriously. Yeah, it seems like I'm clicking on to something that at the end of my career. And not at the end, you know, I'll tell you, I'm gonna put like 5 more years in 5, ten more years in. Probably you did great. Are you saving your money? Now I am, of course. Yeah, I've learned, trust me. I've been broke. I've been broken up to not even want to spend money. Like now as in this week, you're saving the money or because you haven't got it yet. Oh, yeah. Well, you know, I had the fights back to back. So, you know, my money doesn't go anywhere anymore. Good, save it. Save the money, bro, save it. Yeah, I'd be out of the country right now in a weeklong vacation doing something. Well, listen, congratulations, but be happy, man. You did great. Michael, you did a great man. And I'm proud to call you a friend. So appreciate it. Thank you, likewise. No problem. I'll take care, man. Nice to meet you. Speaking. Be good. All right. I was Michael Johnson. Good guy. Cool dudes. Did you watch the fight? You don't watch it this year. I didn't watch this fight now. I could tell you didn't watch it. I'm like, what about this boob? I love them though as a fighter though. He's great. He's such a class act. Yeah. I mean, just a down to earth guy. Do you think he's got some bad breaks in his UFC career? I think he has ADHD. I think he gets bored. And I think he's like almost a victim of having too much talent. Yeah. And I think that he puts himself in one of those he's one of those guys that like, I mean, literally with dominate the fuck out of the first round. Ten 8. And then get caught in the guy's submission. The guy's like, a master at, you know, he's the master at heel hooks. Then he get hot and hey, look, you're just like, oh, you know? Sarah McMahon's like that too. I don't know. Maybe it's a wrestler thing because there's no submissions in wrestling so you could get yourself out of and Michael was a division two wrestler. He was a solid top wrestler. You know, I think that he's, I think he's a victim of being too talented in some ways. And I think that if he had less talent, maybe he'd be more paranoid, you know? So I think he's learning, and I think he's, you know, he definitely won that fight. And you know, it sucks because it's on his record, but I don't think there's a person out there who didn't think he won. Except for the president. Yeah. And I always fill in those fights happen like Dana brings those people back. He got robbed last time, got to give him a chance now. You know what I mean?
Fresh update on "michael johnson" discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Matt Gates, again, utterly heroic. And let's think about how furious the swamp, the rhinos were at Matt Gates, they were furious at him for what he did. And now we know that what he did led to the miraculous choice of Mike Johnson, Michael Johnson. It's amazing. He came out of nowhere and he immediately did what he said he was going to do. This is exculpatory evidence for Americans who are rotting in prison unjustly because of their political views. There is nothing more important. There is nothing more un-American than the political purge trial that the January 6th committee conducted with the help of rhinos like Liz Cheney, whose father lied us into a criminal war in Iraq. And that's the next thing I want to talk about. I have another piece at stream.org called Why is Bin Laden popular on TikTok? For that, we must thank the neoconservatives. We must thank George W. Bush above all. In that article, I don't know if you know, but apparently Bin Laden wrote a letter to America some years before he died and they just put it on TikTok. And all sorts of goofball Americans, you know, vegans who practice yoga and Reiki and who are all into transgenderism are going on TikTok talking about how much they love this violent antisemitic, homophobic, genocidal maniac who wants to impose an Islamic dictatorship on the entire planet. But they're saying they love him. They love him. Now, yes, they're stupid leftists. Yes, I will grant that. Yes, they've gone to American schools, so they never had a chance. But, but why? Why are Americans latching on to Osama bin Laden? There is a reason. Islam is a totalitarian political system with a religion attached to it. There is another totalitarian political system that's quasi-religious. It's called neoconservatism. The neoconservatives, they were basically a reformulation of America into a kind of political program that could compete against communism. And I wrote about this at the American conservative, Pappy Cannon's magazine, which I helped organize in 2002. And I beg readers to go find my article, America, the abstraction. In January, 2003, I predicted that the Iraq war would be a disaster, that the neoconservatives lead America to ruin, and it would lead to the left-wing Democrats taking over America. I hate being right about this stuff. Like Cassandra in the ruins of Troy, making s'mores over the flames. I have the consolation that I was right. Cold comfort it is, I can tell you. Neoconservatism was an intolerant ideology like that of the French revolution. It wanted to purge American history of anything that didn't fit its narrative, destroy the Confederate statues, take down the Confederate flag, get rid of anything from our past that cannot- Wait, wait, wait. You're talking about neoconservatism. It seems to me you're making a leap. I'm not clear how George W. Bush and Dick Cheney wanted to tear down conservative- They were- Confederate statues. Yeah, they were on board with all of that. Nikki Haley, who personally started the wave of destroying historic statues, she started that in South Carolina as its governor, violating her campaign promises. She took the pretext of the crazy mass shooter to tear down all the historic monuments in South Carolina. That's what led to the attacks on statues all around the country. It was started by Republican Governor Nikki Haley, who's now running for president. She started the wave of- Honestly, I had not heard that. That is news to me. Nikki Haley was at the forefront of this. The neocons smeared anyone who opposed the Iraq war. If you remember, National Review did a cover story. Unpatriotic conservatives. They called Robert Novak and Pat Buchanan unpatriotic because they thought the Iraq war was a bad idea. Well, guess what? It was a bad idea. It was based on lies. Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11. It had no weapons of mass destruction. We went to war. We killed at least 600,000 civilians.

"Could everyone ran out of the fucking gym? I mean, but yeah, we'd have a little guys go with some of the bigger guys. I mean, it keeps us on our toes. And he kicked you in the head? Yeah. A few times happens. And nobody told you like, hey, Michael, you gotta fight against Poirier coming up. Why are you sparring with the probably a guy who could easily be the UFC champion? Because we were getting ready. We're getting ready to fight. Dust is a big, big lightweight. Get hurt. Did you get hurt about why would you do that? I popped back up and we finished around and it was it. Did he say he was sorry? No. Of course not. Who apologizes. I don't know, a guy who's an 80 pounds heavier who kicks you in the head. Yeah. So these are men Adam. They're out of our league. Were you in the gym when Anthony Johnson wanted to fight over him? No, I must miss that one. They had some bad blood those two. Have you ever done mushrooms with Rashad Evans? No, not with him. Has he tried to get you into mushrooms? Now he hasn't tried to. I mean, I don't have a problem with mushrooms. And I like him. But I heard he has like a table outside the gym. And he dresses up on rastafari and clothes. He tries to tell you all about mushrooms. He has crystals and stuff. That's not true. All right, so Michael Johnson is single. Are you on Tinder? No, no, I'm not any of those dating apps. What's the difference between St. Louis girls and Miami girls? Like, for example, I mean, the St. Louis girls are more, I mean, call me the more real, you know. Come on, it's a hot St. Louis girls, dude. The Midwest, you know, we got going girls. Do you prefer the girls in St. Louis? No. You could have seen this girl that was on them, Bill. It was like, the girl was a model. Model, she had, she had barely any clothes on. Where was this? It was in Arizona. And she was all, she was all over this dude. He was like, yo, he's like, yo, go wait in the corner. And then she puts her head down. She was in the corner. I don't believe any of this. During the show, she was putting lotion on and giving him a handy. During the show. It was crazy. Adam would never lie or exaggerate anything come on. It was unbelievable. I was like, dude, and I was like, where do you guys meet? He was like 5 minutes ago. He's that good, dude. He's that good. I believe it. Yeah, yeah. Well, listen, Michael, it was a pleasure talking to you. You got robbed. Don't get into a funk, man. I know sometimes you get into these funks, and then you start hanging out. You hang out with your old crew, you guys do a drive by. None of that, okay? Seriously, try not. I'm trying to save lives. You won the fight. You're gonna get $50,000.

"Yeah, I've seen him fight for sure. He's fighting Charles Jordan. Okay. I remember those I haven't seen Charles fight much. I really have a full blown opinion on that one, but I like Shane style. You know, he's definitely a striker at tough guy and was Edson. Was that suffice last fight? Yeah. That was a while ago. Yes, I think he's going to be pretty ready to get in here and get a one. All right, and then also coming up and from England, July 23rd, Curtis blades versus Tom aspinall. That's a good guess a good fight. He's the guy that by the way, he's just killing everyone. Bill, he's 12 and two, heavyweight. He won his last fight against ball call, my arm lock. He beat Jake Collier, he be Sergei spivak, and then Curtis blades, the guy who's never reached his potential. He's like almost like, he does everything really well. Yeah, I love that. And then he sort of like Michael Johnson where he makes one little mistake. One little mistake. And then it's rough. But I don't know, I don't know if he's 26 fights in okay, good point. All right, he's not like Michael. Michael, much better. But who do we like in this fight? It's hard to go against astronaut. I mean, he arrested, he moves, moves like a middleweight. He was damn heavyweight. I like watching that guy fight. I'm gonna go with Tom and that one. Now, the main event, I think on this card, is Jordan leave it. He's a guy that torques in the octagon after he wins. I'm not kidding. He's like, does a split and just starts twerking, which Cormier just starts crying when he sees this laughing. He's fighting patty pinglet. I've never seen a guy. Oh, boy. Lose weight. This dude must get up to like two 30. Just fat. And then he and then he loses it all and gets ripped. This is the main event of all main events. Michael, who wins this fight, talk to me. I don't know, man. You know, I've seen the growth of the patty kid, I don't know if he's as talented as what he's what he thinks he is, but we'll see. I think this Jordan kids a tough guy from the fight.

"You know, as long as guys aren't abusing it, which I think everybody stays up pretty good with it. Now, in celebrity boxing news, Lamar Odom is fighting the fake Drake. He's the guy. He's the guy that actually dresses up like Drake, and he goes to club saying he's drank. They call him Drake. Because he's great. Who do you think wins this fight? The fake Drake or Lamar Odom. I'm gonna go with Lamar Odom. Yeah. Have you ever trained with him? No, not another chair would have never met him. But that's funny that he's boxing. Everybody wants to be a fighter nowadays. Well, Lamar's two and O, he beat Aaron Carter and then he did. And then he beat one of J.Lo's first husbands. So he's two and zero. And now he's fighting the fake trade. So bad. That's funny. The nsync way, right? And then that was the brother of the guy in the Backstreet Boys. But he's a big man. Your boy band's right. Yeah, but he didn't even make the cut. He's the brother of the boy. Yeah, well, I mean, Michael's more of a B two K guy. Now, Brian Ortega versus Rodriguez this week, who do you think wins? I'm excited about that. I think Ortega wins. He seems like he only has issue with guys that are champions. Yeah. Yeah. He's beating everybody else. So, you know, I see him winning that submission of course I'm leaning towards that at some point in the fight. Now, when I saw you, you were on crutches. You had both knees amputated or something. Like, you were completely fucked up. And he's like, don't tell anyone. I had to take a picture from the waist up because he didn't want anyone knowing that his legs were he was in a wheelchair. How did you recover from that? What was wrong with you? That was when I was getting ankle surgery and knee surgery. And the, I was going through all that recovery phase. You know that's what you saw me leading up into all these fights. That's why I wanted a quick turnaround. That's what I wanted to get back to fight. And that's why this decision lost things so bad because I had such a long layoff I took two time to finally get healthy and I felt like I was really getting back in a groove and you know you won that fight. Shouldn't stand bro honestly as a big brother to you, okay? 'cause I've been around this game for a while. You won that fight, okay? No one gives a fuck about the win losses anymore. Everyone's gonna remember you won that fight. Plus you have a lot you have a lot of losses. So what's one more for real? Honestly. One more is still sucks. I don't even like seeing it. Especially one that I do that I knew I won. But yeah, nobody thinks that. It was white privilege, bro they gave it to the guy. Oh, man. It was.

"Got it it's about moving out about me and my brother sit there and find like that all the time we sit there banging it out and make sure that we can go ahead and elevate ourselves even though we're so playful after the round and before The Rock like we sit there and do what we need to do. All right, another question. So clarissa shields, right? Yeah. And Bill, I don't know. She's the greatest boxer of all time. Two times. Two time gold medalist murderer, right? So they put her in the PFL, which is probably a mistake because like they're going to deal with Bo nickel and who's going in the UFC after a one fight or a contender. I almost think you need those like lower level king of the cage, LFA, and so they put her in a competition where she went, I don't know if it was a million, whatever it was. She goes up against a brown belt, and she just sue, who has a decent record, maybe like three, but whatever. And the girl just takes her down, holds her down, wins the decision, right? And now it's like, I'm not saying it's hype as bus 'cause you never know, look at Aaron Pico, right? Aaron Pico, kind of a, he got knocked out his first fight. Now he's looking like a world leader, right? But I gotta say, you guys knew that was gonna happen at Jackson's. Did they just put her against wrestlers all the time? How did they train her? I have no idea. Like, yo, what? Tell your asking me, that's the same question I asked them. I was like, what did you guys show her? Because I would think that her hands are so good. As it is, that it's basically like, okay, we're wrestling morning. Wrestling the afternoon. Sufficient defense. And then hands once a week or something. But what Adam, don't you think that at a certain age you can't really learn wrestling? You know what I mean? What are you talking about? Do you be okay? It would be great if you've never learned it. I've learned

"They don't need an S 9, and I find my mom's. My wife over like, over like me, I'm going on repo dot com and so it's just one of those things where it's like, it's a mess. But anyway, so, but you. Let's talk about you because you have a beautiful kid in your car, and you're doing bare knuckle boxing. Check out both of them. Hey, how's it going, kids? Those kids look thrilled. Now, you had the best fight. You've had in a while, your last fight. You look like your dad Dodson of old. That's what everyone keeps on saying. I was like, man, that John dasson never left. He's always been here. Does the performance wife then come back? But there are sometimes that you were like reliable about too much on your power or you've got, I would say lazy, but you were like, you were just like, yeah, I don't know, maybe you got that to one 90, 200, to ten, maybe the one. So what it was is I fell in love with the power and I kept on telling myself, hey, you can go ahead and knock anybody out with one shot. I was like, that one shot kept on waiting and waiting and waiting, and I was continuously waiting for that one shot. My last one, I was like, man, this is stupid. I just need to go ahead and be myself, create the opportunities, make a miss and just keep on hitting them every single time. And that's what I did. What was the guy's name before again? Francisco Ribeiro? Yeah, who's a good fighter? Ex UFC guy. And you look awesome. So instead of going, all right, I'm going to either make it back to the UFC or what a Bellator belt or PFL. You now go into bare knuckle boxing. Which makes no sense, but okay, fine. Is it a better fit for you, John? Do you think it's a better fit in some level? Well, so I didn't abandon mixed martial arts all in general. I'm going to go do both of them. So in my contract, I can go and do a bare knuckle fight and also do an MMA bout. This is just a cheaper way or not cheap way. More time consuming way that I can go ahead and make one 25 because I'm going to go back down to flyweight and then continue to try to do that for MMA. I just want to show the world that I can make flyweight and crushing this dude here at Albuquerque. And then go on to whatever adventure as I can, even if it be in the bare knuckle or whatever, it makes martial arts organization I can get into. Now, how do you train for bare knuckle boxing? Well, I've been punched myself a lot in the face because I know I'm going to hit the hardest in the division. So I've been just throwing hands with myself all day every day. I'm serious. I mean, are you boxing without gloves and practice? No, actually, I'm actually boxing with regular boxing gloves, and then on Sundays when I'm making sure that it makes it up with MMA gloves because me and my brother are both fighting on the same car together.

"It's one of those things like bro, don't, you know, I go next time a comma gets off stage, give him the money. Or say, hey man, you'll have the money in two days. Or you'll have the money in three days. Don't say it in three hours and make me check my Venmo like an asshole. And now I'm mad the whole ride home. You know, and now I'm like, anyway, John Dodson, how are you, man? I'm feeling good. Boss. I know it seems like you got a pretty much some troubles going on, brother. No, I'm all right, man. This is all these settled in. I don't like to make threats. And I'm not going to blast this guy on social media because I don't want anyone knowing how much I'm making. You know, in any way. Even though it's a good number. But at the same time, it's like, bro, I'm sure you don't promote it in your life where they're like, oh, you know, we'll get you the money next week or whatever. And it's just not there. And then you got to chase it and did you ever have that problem or no? They flew me out to fight in the Dominican Republic, sat there, did a whole show, weeks out there banged it out against John morog at the very first time. And then we get back to the states. All right, so we were trying to get them as soon as the fight was over. The next morning, they said, they'll pay us. We went to their hotel room. And everybody had left, they suffered one guy. And then all the fighters were trying to go ahead and. I don't know how to say it very nicely, but. Put this man in his place so that he wasn't going to be swimming with the sharks for the rest of his life. Yeah, the last thing you want is to have fighters. I felt bad for caraway.

"Through Henry. Were some of your training partners. Could you trade with Chandler? Yeah. Yep. Chandler and Michael Johnson. How good is Chandler? Chandler's good, man. Chandler's good. He's a very dedicated athlete, you know? There's a lot of different personalities and types of athlete in this sport. Sometimes you got just the naturally talented, sometimes you got the strong willed and the, you know, and then you got the lazy guys that just are, you know, their talented but they're lazy. Chandler, I feel like is one of those guys that has a little bit of everything. You know, he's got the work ethic. He's got a great mind about him. He works hard and he is naturally gifted. So Chandler's a, he's a good, he's a good dude. He's Ferguson, right? Tony Ferguson? Yeah, yeah, that's what I heard. I think that's a bad fight for Tony right now. I mean, based on his last couple of fights. Now, there's a guy that trains your gym that is one of my favorite fighters, but he just, I don't know what's going on with him. Caldwell. Caldwell. He's such a good wrestler. And there are times, looks like a world beater. And then like his last fight, he seemed to just gassed out. He was just out and kind of mentally quit. He tried to talk to him about that. Did you train them before that? No, I haven't talked to him about it. You know, I feel like the way that I am is, you know, he knows he knows that it wasn't a great performance for me. He looked awesome. He looked awesome in the fight. He was beating the fuck out of him. And then, you know, just a short mental lapse and, you know, he did guess out his body probably gave up on him a little bit. I don't know, maybe his weight cut didn't go the way he planned or something, but something gave out something gave and unfortunately he lost the fight. I love Caldwell. Yeah, me too. You know, I've gone with them quite a bit in the room and he's a great dude. He's a really good guy. Just a natural naturally gifted just freaking nature. And he works hard too. I don't know. I don't know what went wrong there. But, you know, I haven't talked to him about it because the way that I am is when I lose, I don't want a bunch of people calling me and texting me telling me good job and you could have, you know, you did great. For me, I want to deal with it myself. I want to internalize it and so I don't do that to other people..

Just kind of like assembled woyzeck like action by think at base level being able to communicate to like a child. That is less important. I mean it's incredible. Yeah definitely i think linked to that to me just the realization of how football can influence society because it is everywhere and so many people watch and so many people involved. I think it's a reminder how when we're passionate about certain areas and we're passionate about justice at using spheres of influence in a way where we're looking at targeting things that say deeply rooted in society can bring about more changes looking at where those leverage points are and. I think we have seen that again. As we said earlier in football's influence on society in the whole taking the niece thing where millions and millions of people watch these games. Every week have seen that. I'm so we can we. Cow in their minds black lives matter has been at the forefront and so i think i see now it's been been one of the good things to say and i think it was a teacher's issue. Where else are these levers in society. Where if we focus on a particular area the output will be greater just because of the influence of that thing within society. Yeah i love what he said about.

"Get this right. it's not about the action is the purpose what the game is saying plays the saying is is no seen off and so i i wanna get cleared up with the name. There's a rate does. Reason is a purpose beyond whatever action taken however you choose to show that you show empathy without where raise will resolve hall standing on. All in place continued to take the name. I am still could dropped a place to take the tell you why people might say that volumes purpose. I just told you what's up with the five year old. And i can guarantee you as well when defines combat. Those don't agree with this is gonna be noise as fines will probably but also around the world. This people switching the teeth. They only in america and canada. Wherever you all you still saying this is still recognizes. This is movement so he's still keeping on the agenda. What we're saying is what next. Yep there's gonna be a purpose to work next from sky primarily the earphones. Fa y you going to do so. Make sure that Blot through madsen is even more diversity in in your senior leadership where at the moment across all governing bodies. Don't recognize anybody. Looks like means senior leadership positions Yet this four percent. I'm not right away for not just the men's game the women's game as well. Yeah and opportunities at management level move fair processes for for the interviews. So there's a number of things that potentially can be done is is it or the signing incoming social media for week. Yeah showed these platforms. Yeah that might be a way to say to the place. Where we've you know we could do number two suppo- or the all of that money Connections that we have with the social media platforms for week for a month. When i'm going to go on it to show them unless they do something about the processes. Yeah we'll come off the has to be something from the game that encourages plays the company. Yeah and i think that's what we're talking about. And tends to fight on the need faction. I'm people seeing the value of what you're doing through your actions through the fruit inspiring. If if if you don't have the action that change then everything becomes pointless does not was it. Faith without works is dead exactly. Yeah there's no way that you could just saying on an advocate if your amid. Yeah but we're next. Yeah yeah it's not enough. Yeah tokenism t the the gestures around the whatever finger gonna analyze the environment. The remote. we've got enough a seattle Is really enough is enough. When we know the problems we know that issues just saw them up. Yeah yeah it can be. Yeah yeah you. You mentioned your with management i agreement processes in in the past Oversee the it's been widely documented the in america. You have the really role in In the nfl is one non white interview at has to be choice in each one. Is that something that we might see in football without help. Yes before so. You mentioned my frustrations my frustrations within. I'm not frustrated anymore. Because i honestly believe i am where i'm supposed to be i'm a i'm i'm this was ordained for me to be sat down. There can review this particular moment in time. So if that's the way god intended. I'm cool with that. Why would say is that. I definitely think that the processes around recruitment of money just coaches needs to be surveyed looked at a not just from your right interview. Process should are somebody of ethnishity with did not interview process but also how football recruits will not football recruits Tomorrow and over manages in will. How will you get fed process. It that's the way football recruits so quickly. Yeah and so the needs to be more full around how football crew so more fair transparent recruitment process show. We just spoke about the black lives matter and in the context of football. The side wider society. Have you found the ships in the last twelve months with That's happened With racial injustice being the forefront of the media a bachelor for worse and then at various protests etc outside of football. How have you been the last twelve months. And would you say. Progress has been made in that in that context enough to spend a lot of organizations companies. Now if you the workforce they senior leadership team review in the recruitment processes coach more people from a diverse background to get involved in internet access jobs. Avigdor there's definitely been a push you know. We we look at what's up pending football. Both and you mentioned outside football but even the pay a fight potentially taking on if i was gonna say i black obse. But he's probably the first Ceo anyway because he's being stingy for so long man but yet is a number of organizations. Now joe taking diversity a lot more seriously. It was such a shame any hot to cost. Somebody's life for this to happen. But i think people i'm probably me -cluded you knew it was going on but just kind of beg just got only life. This is really Prompted discussion healthy discussions sometimes see to discussions but discussions. That have to happen through to the nf move to more positive place. Yeah yeah definitely. And i think it will be as related to be interesting when fans back on the terraces because you will have some whatever reason blimp too big taking the mill will did that tonight in in one of the games where you had a he finds in but also i think because of the shifts in wider society and i include myself in my my attitude when i go back to watch football in any context is is to be less passive in these moments and say the shift but why does saudi seen you know we talked about inference that can have on societe. I'm also hoping that fully but idiots who are going to do very idiot is going to bow. There's another ten people in the last twelve months. Seen the the need for change and seeing the urgency f- to no longer just sit by and shrug shoulders will sit by and just be a new bit. Kinda froze knowledge. Don't know what to do. And i didn't know how to help the situation. I feel like the has been a big shift from south holland. People is highly that will have an impact in society can kind of keep giving each other that level.
"In called the nine three freeways k. Taking money and you look across the league now. Mr warford in terms of numbers will come into management yet. This nigga forty percent. The players played gained from ethnicity point of view and certain numbers thrown out up. And so when you're not junior trying to komo manager and this is why my journeys to so many places would just management courses is because you you've got to be adaptable because the reality is is going to be security for somebody of Chabot fake crocodile cracking the whip. And things aren't getting better but it's always with these things. It's very slow. And as i said to a campaign to this weekend now designee so much time you can wait. And that's why me about trying to go k way. Do you see yourself in a year two years and move again as opposed to just continue to wait something to happen you muslim. Something d do you ever see the the speed of change accelerating now. He's very Very clever in the way that The the denial process there. The bridges is taken away from you. There's always something. There's always some kind of commissioner report taking over five years. Yeah and then you had as of someone's career and then there will be some kind of program albeit number five five years and not program. is always something as opposed to saying. Okay let's just stop this will. Shouldn't that soldier out with needs to get to the touch points. Yeah i think. Football has a real role playing wide societies needed. Because it's Watched in pretty much every household in the country. The opportunity to to really shift an lead on the discrimination that we see roy the society as well you just think if comedy pioneering in this area with the number of exceptional black athletes and y- manages his wildly see coming and knocking getting the chances if if that's not an opportunity to lead for the for the wider society. What is which makes it. I guess a bit more frustrating even more frustration -solutely totally agree will be with you. Think for both got the power to change in every country's majority of households and that the old amount ethnicity coach agenda disability you all it's accessible tool and everybody's watching and so he's a powerful tool and i know one of my neighbors is white and was Citizen wilkin the dog. And they said to me. You won't believe what mark five-year-old's done this morning as on wall that in there were playing in the back garden and mock install game in the five year olds. Don't in need. I these doug hawaii coming in any said 'cause black lives matter so powerful football in a backpack processes five-year-old's taken is up this our recognize. The black lives matter. Yes so football is really powerful in physics using the right way. You can make considerable change. And it's analogous to sat one of those questions that probably requires him an hour. Long response was some of the the steps to accelerate. That change is it. Is it from the top. Is there anything that not just play players staff plates or anything that supporters can do to help bring this huge shift is is needed. It's absolutely is an accountability to everyone sunday. Give you an example. If i'm crossing if i'm blackmail crossing the road i see an asian woman getting much or why old lady getting moved. I'm gonna do something now. Just because that may not be a couple characteristic i recognize. We've does it mean it's not my problem. I am as much a problem if i don't do nothing. Vic- something wrong. Yeah doesn't mean to say you gotta go out there and be confrontational. 'cause i understand with one time what i'm saying these if he's wrong it's wrong and we need to be out and search for me. I think everybody's as a point as a process to pry in making these voted by place. That's the which in the goal for me to make this world a price for our children that they can live in a world where it respective who you all is opportunities and depending on your skill sets nobody should. We denied any opportunity. Just based on the characteristics these personalities and so for me a yes this goes that funds in everybody can play in it and if it yes to senior leadership teams the ones that really need to start looking at their processes and to see if there is a divers diversity. Top level of the table more diverse environment encourage those overstocked possibly may look at your organization. Go what chance of i drug s goals that drives education that drives behavior just a full process that somebody can. It was. chinese gentleman would might been japanese knees wouldn't be the opening night. One of the first things he said was his great. Because now can be dot role motive for so many. I coach my looked. Same on on saturday for lady won the grand national wonderful stories like that that leads the top of the game. The industry leaders to be able to really encourage overs lay to without went on community based on the fact that you over there in terms of qualifications need. Yeah yeah absolutely. The has been a big discussion about the value of taking leave before games. What's your thought. An opinion on on the value of that finished two points to this. I think number one the reason not this. Let's.
"I am and certain times you know. You don't even have to say something you can just walk. You can just showed care and you could just show emotion. You could just be sympathetic. You can just smile. You can just engage certain times certain times to be still. His is opposite is killing himself and so make. I just think the way that you be behaves and portrays even though you think people watching this people watching in a not always where you are to open the bible nine. I do that but sometimes not the very nature of who you all yet that you are is enough for paper symphony something about this person. Yeah definitely need basis. I thank you because you know where we'll be nine by the we jas wittoled down there is there is obviously the the aspect of Darting into the weather gods at personal relationship with god said the actions acquire because they know us because of the way we act and they will know that we're different than south side because of the fruit that we bear. And if we're not if we're not behaving differently if we're not bearing fruit than it becomes pointless does absolutely nothing. That's who not so great pointed engaging to open up on his to people you know the fruits of the spirit of who you are kind human being get we all human but more than the no. I tried a moral compass about mesa personalit- by certain values on a daily basis. I'm not trying to meet away from those values. They all tested. Kim this environment and book. You know what's been quite clear. Tomase is you can preach just by the way Joel your life in the way that you always an individual. Yeah yeah definitely with a lot of people over the is in football to any greatly to stand out in particular you mentioned starting with neil warnock must have been a good place to stop right who who has some of the the best lady. He worked on what made them. A good leader is interesting because of the lead istanbul kit and then in either very worldly they. They were good people. Yeah they should. They showed leaderships in different ways. Yeah i mean. I've seen ill shouted half time in clips and that kind of thing. Say maybe not particularly. Yeah he would. I think at that time. That was ninety s inc the insides that we do in leadership for the talks and everything that we listen to you now and of leadership very very i say you pretty results and you can continue to have that kind of leadership style. This particular moment. Enlarging woods moved on and youngsters now probably would listen to that so of an individual votes and then that was a definite in and in terms of being success. Successful was a near water so of coaching and who. Who are the better leaders than you mentioned. This kind of need for democratic i guess walking alongside the people. You're leading more approach with manages you paid under the modal. But yes oh spent. Gordon came to county. When i when i retired and he was the complete polar opposite in terms of very very calm very showed himself south confidence in races voice but his opinion just carried side which way new injury knew how to get the job done An i really appreciate it leadership and completely different than what i've been used to which has always been renton and raven binding table wasn't in book was completely the opposite. Very calm. very composed articulate with these words. Do indoors never would waste on. Yeah and you kind of got that impression even outside obviously be day today and the tactical inside and the at listening to people around He you could see. He wasn't the kindest dry treatment at time definitely despite ready carbon emissions but you can add the room would literally hang onto his every word and you bought some some lessons from him to your management in ghana absolutely. I'm not renton. You know what this is about leadership and you just wait where the perception of the world is to be a good leader you about. She got to be really open. And that you've got to fans and you've got to be able to demand things and and to me the kind of leadership. I am very much the over side of the coin where he empower people. Try to engage people on a humanistic level on a more about the softer skills yet. More about the person develop person Person than you created a real good atmosphere. People were empowered to do more later time for individuals. You're going out on a little bit more limp. The most and i think as you say you can almost now looking back. See over the last twenty years how leadership has changed from wants the other an we talk more about authenticity. Don't wait until rabbinate's a and you won't. You won't understand that you leaders get get you way way you walk and qualify of been way while and walked walking and if someone starting at the front balking odors you you don't get to The authenticity is we. We want to see what people really want to bring that to the leadership. Because it's it's much more inspiring a much more relatable to two people into to team. So i guess that shift you can't you can't really say from from the from the nineteen th football. Any nineteenth bullying has shifted a fad. That looking out of the changes in football league Was reading earlier that last year you'd mentioned about the Changes in race relations football specifically with management. And just your you. Didn't you didn't think that the movement that bit much of a chance for diverting the manager and there's still a long way to go in terms of of management is Can you tell us about your experiences with that. Yeah just look if you look at The stats in the been ongoing for many years Leak still free. I think there's something like in a public nine and money. Just been involved in the printing since his birthdate which was nineteen ninety-one in an.
"Different signalling an action your Difficult really because i ended the day. You can't really like tell everyone's intentions lock think a lot of people did do that with the with the like intent just about you signal of just kind of like a guilt reflex of like sure you know one of the ones. He thinks this is i. I'm and i think there is something even in that. I think we've seen over the years like where it's just been transpired. He's just been like all. There's nothing in this. It's just right. Hold on love result own pu the publisher simon and schuster daiwa out. They were like tweeting support. Saying yeah we stand by blat laws and then you false would even a whole year and the on that slate of upcoming releases that go a book written by one briana taylor's killers and he just like these things i quite and early into. They succumb to counter social media pressure and criticism that counseled up. And so i think. I think the i think the cool to like learning unto aligning racial bias and stuff by that has been important at by think he's always been step one and i think that is is starting to think about okay in my context and even outside of my contacts as well. How can i start action. That how could. I starts a cool out races and as she starts to build infrastructures that don't allow that to creep in an. I think once we start to do that. We're going to see we're going to that more equalled come together i think a huge part of it is imagination. I think we particularly Those we get to a point where we just have this idea of what life is all the extent to which life can change and get better and i think even with like conversations around defunding police and even abolishment and stuff at some of these some of these conversations can feel like quite out there sometimes when you just do some reading us out what's been done in all the places. I can remember reading like a report on this village in mexican where there was no police presence bilingual kind of like governed by the community as. Oh well this issue like frameworks to not only just like learn about what's happened as she to change the future so that what's happened before doesn't happen again. I'm saying south. That'd be my my challenge to everyone including myself is that she. How can we action the learning How hockey action the awareness that we gained great. Thanks for your skies as we move forward. Let's keep up the fight against racial injustice and.
"Hello and welcome to the together. Procast conversation about faith justice and how to change the world. I'm dan and say i'm joined by emma. I'm chris how're you doing. Guys good thing bit hungry not gonna live a good fitting ready. This lovely chat right. When in this episode we'll be hearing from ex footballer and current england under twenty one coach. Michael johnson he shared his journey as christian info and refraction the current progress of race relations in the sport but before we go any further is of course time for amazon is okay so usually our guy for more humorous dilemma. Just today maybe the most serious one. So the dilemma. Is that your friend. Told you that they've committed a crime and they explain the having trouble sleep in and they feel that you are the only person that they can trust with the confession but a few days later you read in the newspaper that sawant's being arrested for your friends crime. Say do you go to the place and tell them. What do you tell your friends like. You've confessed otherwise. I will or do you say nothing and let somebody else. Downfield friends crime. Who primary. And i feel like you're trying to criminalize right here. So that if we say the wrong now for crime and you're known as deceitful and all that kind of thing so we're going to say it's a petty crime. It's a small. It's not gonna be like a big big big crime. My first question and crying more question was going to be. How big was the crime. We'll how severe is a crime. Which i think in itself like shows the kind of road. I'm gang down where it should just be like. No we are definitely turn them in but for me like what is that. What can we get away with the dependent. I remember a couple of my friends. go cool. shoplifting woolworths. I mean some people were listening. Why even i remember got caught shoplifting. And there's one of those things you know in school like sometimes people get in trouble for stuff to happen outside the school as lot but really anyway they were proper hunting. Who was over. The head teacher was like please come forward if you have any information largest yellow. It's gonna like i look at my friends. Just think that's the reason i went down. She more life my life story to the states through to start over other thing mind. Do you think that maybe you should have him in to be honest mind. I think it was like other by it was excited inconsequential when you look back. I don't think anyone if we changed that way moment. I don't think anyone's life would be any different. That's how i feel like we need to go in depth in visit of your friends now and see what might have happened if he'd stay in ensure they go into trouble but maybe their life would have been different in some way. Maybe that was the minecraft moving past it by but we have to like bring in the element that mesa such dilemma. Which is imagine you're in that scenario but then other students again pinned for this crime Then would you tell me you saw that. Other people were like saying that someone else. I think i would put pressure on the people who perpetrated the crime to come clean themselves oppression on them. I'll be like no. This isn't fair. you know what you've done. I know what you've done. I'm not gonna do this fully but this important for you in your life and your development as a year a student would it be the gangsta cliche of like yoga. Isn't it like you say just a conversation like on guys. I'm gonna. I'm gonna let you know that i know into you like to think i would just like to think i'm going to say with one hundred percent confidence. I would do the right thing as painful. It would be. And and if i had to. I would confess half of it was me. I would say like these guys. You've got the wrong person. Yeah i think it really bring jesus into the situation as well and i would just say. Look i'm going to have to confess. Because i know the truth. Even if you're not going to. However i jesus forgives you so i forgive you i love the law may not have this my mother and it's math or reason so yeah like you can still go to heaven needs. He needs to do the right thing. Just bring the hannity perspective in. I wish that was my answer now. Also we now know who's responsible for the downfall. A few of chris's friends stayed mix. If you listen i mean. I'll be surprised if you are now looking at. Maybe that's the thing if they if i did stephanie. Maybe they'd be able to pull out a me. You know maybe speaking of pay crime. I do remember being sainsbury's once with a friend and she still brett like she star as french bread. Stick of twenty pay. And i was really confused because she just walked out holding it and i thought oh did you meet and i was making it really obvious by accident like did you mean to take that. I don't think you've pages an issue. Just keep going.
"michael johnson" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"Distribution. Playing in the state right now, President CEO Michael Johnson tells me when the pandemic hit last spring, they started reaching out. People all over the country to try to bring face masks also hand sanitizer to their community. And you know what? They ended up hitting the jackpot. We were really concerned about, you know, people who are the most marginalized connection of mine throw poison girls Clubs of America. Connected us to ups and they end up giving us half a million bottles of hand sanitizer and therefore motor company ended up donating a million face, man. Isn't that unbelievable? You never have to be getting in the pandemic. You couldn't find hands. Is there anywhere But this truly I mean, since last year, this is truly been. Ah Collaborative effort ticket all those goods out apartment with a couple of groups. So we are delivering. Face mask to local schools to local nonprofits for free and we'll continue to do that until we went out. And so far they've given away 625,000 masks. You have given out, you know, facemask individually to healthcare workers. Two correctional officers, too. Parents who come to our clubs except for you know, Facemash. We just want to make sure that people stay safe. They mask up and they stay alive. It's really for such a great cause. And I will say we have come a long way thinking back a year ago when we couldn't find those things we could, and he explained how difficult it was even for him. You know, including me. I was wearing underwear on my face Everything else to put on my face, and I saw people who was just making, you know, cutting up the shirts and covering their faces. We was just really concerned about the welfare of people. People were desperate back then I remember people were making masks out of this sounds weird, but broad like that make a homemade mask. And people were putting using underwear. I mean, it was pretty crazy, but we've come a long way. We've gotten the masks out there, and here they are. Boys and girls Club giving out one million masks.

An Interview with WWE Legend Kurt Angle
"Incredibly pleased society. We've got joining us. Who never quite expected? That's phones on silent everyone. I never expected that we would have on. Tko wwe wrestling legend. Kurt Angle first of all. Thank you so much for for taking the time to join us. Thanks for having me on. And let's see you're over here with them. WWe promoting the new bt sport. Yes exclusively in the UK for the two thousand and twenty busy day few. Yeah we started early morning and we're GONNA go out tonight we just have like a a gathering at bt. Not and. I think it ends at eleven o'clock but we started early morning and this is normal for for sports entertainers. Yeah do a lot of media so going a huge wrestling fan on A. You didn't have sky in your house. Yes so I was like an a young kid by Cole I was Afam. wrassling bottom was on the subway channels and I didn't have sky the watch it as much as other guys. Yeah but I was obviously a world of high beg ables. Did you know when you first joined. Because obviously in these this day and age social media the Internet you know how truly global the companies and how far you're reaches but were you aware in in the late ninety s just how many people were watching worldwide now. I I didn't watch wrestling. I didn't grow up watching it. I start watching it it would. I started so when I saw the company late ninety eight. That's when I started watching I do WanNa come on those days. But he's okay. You got quite like to find Natalie about your amateur wrestling career because as a professional sportsman. That's something that you were known for his part of your. WWe character but actually that was a huge part of your career and your life you were in a family of rest is your brother's arrest sits right yeah had four brothers. They all wrestled. They were all very successful. I was the youngest. Didn't really like wrestling. The START WITH I. I like team sports. I didn't like it depending solely on me but the more I watched my brothers and growing up I start liking wrestling. I started getting better and eventually I got better than they were and then I became came the best of my family by win the Olympic medal. Yeah 'cause wrestling in America's be of a high school institution because we have it starts when you're serve in elementary school visit. Almost every school has a program right so junior high high school college. It's very big over there. So it's it's part of our culture because a lot of people call for boxing to be put into schools as part of the curric- it used to be in the schools and there's a call for it become back and installs obviously a lot of discipline and everything else and you see the the problems that society has these with Nayef Cram and gang culture and everything else. I think. Think that programs like that rather than in the states and boxing programs and the stats are in the UK. Only going to help us. What point did you? What age did you think this could really be serious for me as a career I would say around thirteen fourteen? I started having a lot more success and got to the high school level and I lost success there and it just carried over to college and I didn't really. Oh you think about Olympics. When I was younger I just thought about that season and if I could win the championship that year and every year I continue to win which Olympic I'm big city one nine hundred ninety six Atlanta Atlanta well? Is that your proudest moment. Out of everything you've done in your career. Olympic gold medal surpasses says anything. Yeah it was You know even bigger than anything. I've accomplishing wwe. Yeah Yeah Imagine. That was a kind of Golden Olympics for the US esteem cousteau was the homeland picked. Michael Johnson it like the basketball team is Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal came one. Those guys Gail Devers. Even Andre Agassi won the tennis and we're legends in that team. What was it like to be off in the Olympic Village? Seeing those people it was pretty cool. You know you knew it was special when you went to opening ceremonies and you saw the athletes there and the guys you mentioned they were the guys and girls that were participating that were already professionals professionals and they made it you know viable for pros to end up competing in the Olympics and so you saw basketball and tennis. Ns and now even golf. So the the pros are going and winning medals as well now so those of it because one of the things the Olympics exp boxing is one of the only sports where there is a kind of. There's another trajectory and other policy if you win a medal for of sports certainly minority sports. That aren't necessarily a lot of TV coverage the Olympic medal can often be the kind of end of the road. There isn't anywhere else. I speak to go resting very well. Be One of those is and and so for you that amazing so the question I was going to ask you without. FMA How to beg then as it was Ni- would you have took that pop rather than the wwe without a doubt. Yeah wow it wasn't at that point. UFC struggling they offered me a ten fight. Deal for one hundred fifty grand and that was our biggest contract they ever offered. This was in ninety seven and then sound very good to me so I decided decide to go pro wrestling and by two thousand one two thousand and two you have see was kicking in high gear but I was already drawn in and a pro wrestling scene. So how how did the what was the chain of events that let you to the door of of the W W well in one thousand nine hundred sixty minutes man offer me a contract. I flew up to meet with them and I wasn't interested. I had a lot of people. Tell me you know you grew up. You never watched the Fake what you did was real a lot of my peers. Were telling me don't do it. So my agent through the contract the way and I'd say in one thousand nine hundred star watching Watching stone. Don't go Steve Austin the Rock and however flannel. They weren't how entertaining they were. I thought man I could do this. I think it'd be a lot of fun and you have see at the time. Time wasn't going anywhere so I went with a wwe. What was the the early memories? Because I imagine wrestling's one of the toughest sports there is a is a amateur wrestling but of red. If in a few places that is a pro wrestling were were incredibly tough. What were your first memories of some of the first lessons and training training sessions? You did all the first day. When I started training I quit? I took three bumps and my neck the pain I was getting my neck and back it was like this isn't normal. You don't it's like self abuse and you know we bump on plywood.
