"Is Bloomberg This is the Bloomberg business of sports show where we explore the big money issues in the world of sports I'm Michael Barr I'm Mike lynch We are speaking with Mike tannenbaum ESPN's front office insider cofounder of the 30 13 Mike was also the general manager of the New York Jets and former Miami Dolphins executive vice president of football operations I want to ask you now about just the state of the NFL in general Where do you see it today and if there are any improvements that are needed what needs to be done Well certainly with diversity in terms of hiring And I've been fortunate to be on the faculty at Columbia University in their sports management program And our students over the last couple of years came up with an idea that I think is very realistic and meaningful which is I think if more time and effort and energy was put into the entry level positions the internships the quality control positions in a meaningful way over time as diverse candidates and employees be it racial or gender work their way up the ranks and get meaningful experience in theory over time like this problem should result itself But if there is much more of an emphasis on diversity at that level you look at the numbers that it should be impactful over time So you're saying the infusion should be from the grassroots level rather than feeding from the talk right No question about it I think at the top there's definitely ways it could be better and should be better by any objective indices it just hasn't worked but I think you could really look at it long-term Mike Again by looking at sort of as I said the entry level grassroots level I've seen it a little bit to 30 13 Proudly we had a university of Massachusetts softball player who did a lot of research for one of our coaches She got hired and now was full time in the New York jet college guide department And that was a great win for her Great one for us Great one for the jets but it's just an example of again more of an emphasis starting at the bottom I want to ask you about it's a wild off season so far Got quarterbacks going here getting paid there Tom Brady advertised Tom Brady No wait a minute This is it's the crazy season of on the crazy season It is just starting with Tom He's earned the right to change his mind but I actually think Tampa Bay got better I like Bruce sharing I think he's a good coach I love Todd Bowles I work with Todd a long time ago I think he's extremely relatable I think you sort of hold the players accountable I think the style of coach bowls is much more akin to Bill Belichick Now look I'm not saying he's Bill Belichick but I think Tom is going to enjoy that environment And I think they have a real meaningful chance to go all the way this year All right Mike Colin Kaepernick Will he ever get a shot in the National Football League again Well his window is now if it's going to happen and he came out recently said he'd be happy to be a backup and there's not enough quarterbacks on the planet So you look for teams like Seattle Carolina If they were going to bring in another quarterback to compete I think this would be sort of like his window if it's going to happen Where do you see college players coming into the league in college players playing college bowl with NIL rules where all of a sudden players are realizing oh wait I got to pay taxes on this Do you think NIL name image and likeness do you think it's hurt the game or help the game Well I think it's an appropriate going back 30 40 50 years It always the context was free education and you don't get paid And obviously things have changed It's given the substantial amount of money Some players can earn not most but some And I heard Nick Saban say something interesting the other day that was very contextual which was since he's been at the university of Alabama His players have earned $1.7 billion in the NFL So when you talk about the major division on NBA NFL prospects they should be thinking about NIL but NSL or NBA And I think for some of these other players sure they're going to make some dollars but I don't think once the market sells down guys I don't think we're talking about hugely consequential dollars for the majority of the student athlete Now hopefully they could put a couple of dollars in their pocket but I think once things kind of get into a rhythm and a routine here it'll be some money available and some college athletes will make some money but I don't think it'll be all that means Mike you work for the dolphins and this off season they traded Devante Parker to a digital rival of the Patriots and everybody up here in New England scratching their heads We could never see the reverse happening although it has happened in the past How much how do you hem and haw before you trade an impact player like that to a divisional rival Yes And just to you guys I'm sorry Wants me to draft a trade with coach fellow check I actually won that worked out We will get a returner in jakeem grant And it was a lower round like swapping a text but knowing how smart coach bell check is how much respect I have from I was like okay so let's double check the math here Realize we've done it with somebody really smart on the other end of this call So I think it's one of those situations where clearly New England probably offered Mike way more than anybody else because Devante Parker I was there when we drafted him He's a really good player when he's healthy like his boo has been endurance but if he's healthy New England got a really good football player Up next on the show more with our conversation with Mike tannenbaum ESPN's front office insider and cofounder of the 33rd team That is straight ahead on Bloomberg business of sports I'm Michael Barr You can follow me on Twitter.

"Money issues Sports I'm Michael Barnes I'm scarlet fu Mike lynch is stepping aside for this next conversation but he'll be back later on in the show You know we love him We're joined now by barstool sports chief executive officer Erika nardini Erica took over as CEO in 2016 overseeing an incredible increase in overall revenue during her tenure Erica welcome to the show Thank you for having me I want to start off First of all with the bar stool difference the evolution of the bar stool fund worked like a girl campaign I love that You got to tell me about that That's awesome Yeah so the barstool difference is what people used to say what our fans used to say when we would royally screw something up So when the technology wouldn't work in a live stream or the sound didn't work in a production or somebody at barstool did something stupid What the chant would be on Twitter was something to the effect of the barstool difference right It was just the way barstool did things And so we've kind of adopted that name because I think that's exactly right Barstool does things and its own way in its own style We're not particularly corporate We're not particularly conservative We just kind of see where the Internet takes us and to make things happen from there So in 2020 in December of 2020 Dave portnoy the founder put out a tweet because we were seeing what was happening to restaurants and small businesses during the pandemic And we were especially seeing how creative small business owners were in trying to make things work in ever changing regulations and a huge amount of uncertainty and especially financial insecurity And so we raised in the course of three and a half four months we raised $41 million from over 200,000 people across the country It was amazing We distributed those funds as quickly as we could humanly possibly do it And we also showcased the stories of small business owners which was really inspiring and really impactful And motivated us I think in an incredible way And we really felt that take hold across the country And so what we're doing now is really reinvigorating what we're doing not just in terms of raising money to help small businesses But in my case I'm a female executive in a male dominated industry I spend most of my time with men and I want to see other female business owners and other female business executives be able to have their business thrive So I'm glad that you explained that this happened when sparked by Dave portnoy taking this on back in December of 2020 because skeptics out there like journalists people who are trying to make a name for themselves on social media might say that barstool is doing this because it's trying to distract from negative headlines of portnoy's alleged sexual misconduct and a culture of alleged bullying and misogyny Those reports but this is something that barstool has been working on before all of this I'm curious to hear from you Erica overall because the Fortnite controversy is certainly something that businesses are thinking about And it's an issue for the current acquisition by Penn as well How has the portnoy controversy affected Marshall's business overall for better or for worse I mean there may not be any clear cause and effect but what kinds of correlations have you seen So what I would say is as far as it relates to social good and charitable efforts barstool has been helping people since barstool was started in 2004 So doing things to help others whether it's firefighters whether it's victims of the Barcelona the Boston Marathon bombing the barstool fund we've done a lot to help a lot of different people A lot of different organizations and most recently a lot of different businesses So this is something that is a part of our DNA and always has been part of barstool's DNA As it relates to being controversial in the controversy look barstool is a company that has a huge target on its back Why do we have a target on our back We don't play by everybody else's rules We don't believe that the way traditional media has been packaged produced run monetized distributed We don't believe in that We're charting our own path and as a result as every year has gone by you talked about the revenue growth 3000% we've become more formidable And that makes barstool a bigger and bigger target Dave himself has one of the most influential people on the Internet has also become a bigger and bigger target He is right now suing Business Insider for defamation I think that case will be very interesting to see how that plays out But one of the things that I would say as it relates to quote unquote controversy is I think most everything right now is controversial when you go look at any community You look at any fan base you look at any sector that has a lot of heat to it There's a huge amount of controversy American politics brought with controversy business fraught with controversy The Internet is like the originator of controversy At least as it plays out now on Twitter and other mediums So I would say we're pretty used to it And certainly as we've gotten bigger we understand that there are more eyes on barstool There's more scrutiny And then there will be varying perceptions that are people who are who love us there's people who hate us There's people who like certain personalities are aspects of our business and disdain others And as the CEO I'm comfortable with that And as CEO under your tenure we've actually I remember talking to in the past and you're surprising me with numbers on the breakdown of your audience and how it's a lot more female oriented than you might expect Tell us about that and tell us overall about how the audience has evolved since you became CEO Sure I mean I think barstool is a lot more than people expect We are one of the fastest if not the fastest growing brand on the Internet What's interesting about our audience is when I got to barstool it was a regional blog it was in New York It was in Philly it was in Boston obviously which is where Dave started barstool It was in Iowa and that was about it And now we reach over a 150 million people every month on every platform out there and our audience is in large part female Some of our shows are 80% female Some shows are 50% female But we reach a very big audience and we have fans that come from all different types of places all different types of backgrounds all different types of genders all different types of races Up next on the show stay tuned for more of our conversation with barstool sports CEO Erika nardini when we talk about online sports betting We'll discuss barstool sports book and their.

"In the world of sports Michael Barnes And I'm Mike lynch Scarlett foo is off today She will be back next week to mess with lynchi with a number of the week But let's continue our conversation now with former Arizona coyotes general manager John Chaka and founder of restaurant franchising business J K capital you own and operate 32 Wendy's and Tim Horton franchises throughout Ontario and Quebec When you go into something like that what experience do you try to take in and because 32 that's a big number One is hard enough 32 that's doing so Yeah yeah don't look my experiences Mainly on the leadership side my wife is more of the restaurant expert than the operations side of things With my background building businesses more on the strategy finance development growth side of things So it's been an amazing venture We started off with 12 stores southern Ontario We've now grown to Quebec as well So across a few provinces and added another brand and Tim Hortons So it's really grown It's a great business We employ over a thousand people now And so it involves like I said the leadership piece is something that I truly enjoy trying to find that intrinsic motivation every day for the group develop the next generation of leaders for our company and really connect with people And it's a people business in the restaurant business I want to compare your emotions to starting the restaurant business to your first couple of weeks on the job When you wrote in your op-ed that you were terrified and you had a lot of uncertainty and anxiousness when you took the GM job at age 26 where there's similar feelings of apprehension when you started the restaurant business Yeah you know what I think the key is really that those feelings and what I wrote is that I think that's a real clear sign of really being passionate and caring about your work and want to do a good job and really forces you to bring your best every day And so yeah we've recently transacted and bought some additional restaurants and everyday you go into a new restaurant You do get some of that they call it butterflies and sports right And get some anxiety in the positive way and it really drives you to be better Do you have any desire to want to break back into a sports league Obviously like the NHL do you think that you still have any fire in the belly to do that Yeah I'm 32 So I got a long career ahead of me A lot of time I've done a lot of work in the other sports and the consulting basis staying engaged Again I really truly believe that a great competitive advantage is having great perspective And finding some analogous thinking to apply different ideas different concepts and ways of doing things One of my own personal thesis theses is that there's a convergence amongst a lot of these sports and leadership positions where a lot of clubs and a lot of organizations are just trying to find the best way to apply data tech science and ways to improve their operations improve the way that their people are performing creating an environment where everyone's playing at the top of their game or performing at the top of their game And what I'm talking about restaurants or software or data or sports I think those all apply And so I'm a big fan of creating mental models and approaching things in ways where you can apply different thoughts and theories and do it in a way that perhaps the space that hasn't had those ideas before But I think that's good And that leads to growth We're coming around that time It's the NHL trade deadline And I know a lot of GMs around the league probably all of them and I'm sure you said the same thing We're like oh snap What are we going to do It's like which way are we going here What are we going to do How did you approach it I think like anything preparations critical The amount of calls you have to make before you make a trade never measured it but it's in the hundreds probably So you're constantly gathering information doing analysis Again a very small portion of the analysis you do will ever lead to an action But you only need to make one or two trades really to create a lot of value So the preparation piece is key I think having a really strong decision making model It's an emotional thing sports Everyone wants to win not everyone wants to be disciplined towards winning So if you can create better models of how decisions are made and better structured I think that allows you in the heat of the moment to rely on the structure and allow you to make the best decisions possible And then so like I said things are fluid Things change Things come up You're not going to be able to be prepared for everything And so you have to be able to be agile and be flexible If you want to make a deal and I think some clubs and managers are better at executing and those are the ones that ultimately probably have success on a day like that Whereas others may be struggled with being adaptable and being prepared So for us it was always about what can we do ahead of time to put ourselves in the best position And then what's our structure and how disciplined are we going to be so that we maintain the best decision making model in that day John Jacob former Arizona coyotes GM and founder of J KC capital You've been talking with Mike lynch in the geek Thank you so much for talking with us We hope you had a lot of fun sir Yeah thanks guys I enjoyed it I really appreciate the time John Jacob a very interesting man My goodness I mean I know he had the experience obviously in the NHL with a GM but he owns 32 Wendy's and Tim Horton's franchises That to me is that is a super feat in itself lynching It certainly is and considering where he came from the hockey background and then jumping into the restaurant business which is just fraught with headaches and problems And he's so successful now 32 of them Every time I think of Tim Hortons I'm just hankering for a donut right now All right I like also that he learned a lot At 26 he got the job as the GM And he grew And the experiences that he went through he went through some bumps But like he said in the end it made him a better person He learned a lot from it And the life's lessons he has moved on and has a beautiful family now Yeah and I think the great word to use at the top of this takeaway Michael was ownership He has ownership of the restaurants and he took ownership of his actions when he was a general manager and finally was a resigned the night before these playoffs were beginning back in 2020 So he's owned up to what he's done He doesn't hit anything and he made mistakes and he's learned from them and look at all these accomplished at age 32.

"I'm Mike lynch And let's continue our conversation now with New Jersey devil's president Jake Reynolds This may sound like a silly question But is there such a thing as a business model for an NHL team and if so what is it I will tell you the core of this business is as you can imagine it's built around kind of the season ticket base and obviously being able to fill the arena every game We're focused on obviously partnerships and making sure that we are aligning with the right brands And then obviously you have the premium aspects You have your original TV network deals You talk about just the platforms that sports teams have And it is pretty incredible just in terms of the reach the power but that also translates into kind of the cities where we live work and play So talk a little bit more about your engagement with the local community because one thing that I was impressed by when I went to go see a devil's game in New Jersey is the extent of the small businesses that were represented that were given shout outs that you see just represented around the rank around the arena You can track that with say MSG which is bills itself as the world's most famous arena but the corporate sponsorships there are national brands chase for instance As opposed to local businesses And that struck me that you are building a connection with your fan base in a way that you don't that MSG for instance may not because New York is so big that you're looking at a national international market all the time For us I think the focus is finding that right balance And obviously being able to have the national brands is incredibly powerful It's an impactful But for us also making sure that we have those local community tie ins is incredibly valuable and incredibly important to how we are building this business We are proud to be the only team that has New Jersey in its name And there are other teams That's a good point There are other teams that practice here But we are the only professional sports team that has New Jersey in our name So we take a tremendous amount of pride in that We look at this as an opportunity and also an obligation for us to be able to give back to some of the local businesses and to make sure that we represent this state at the highest level So Jake following up on that many clubs could have just passed on last year with all the money they lost during COVID What was your retention rate for sponsors and season tickets as well And I give our business team a tremendous amount of credit because there are a couple of key pieces to being able to continue to find success despite some of the challenges from last season And when you look at our partnerships business they are kind of three key things I would say one is just the strong relationships that they had with our partners And that was on full display as we were able to retain all of our partners And then work with them to find creative platforms and creative solutions to still be able to drive awareness And even though we weren't we didn't have fans in the building We were still able to activate their partnerships throughout kind of our digital platforms throughout our broadcast but then also coming up and finding creative integrations to be able to have new platforms and showcase their businesses And then the last piece is we had made some significant investments in the digital space about three years ago which positioned us and set us up for a very successful run kind of throughout COVID where you did not necessarily have the eyeballs in arena kind of within the venue How we activated those outside and on our digital platforms and through social and through integrated content was something that put us in an incredible position And I give our partners a tremendous amount of credit for branching out for trying new things and we're looking for new opportunities to be able to kind of go out and expand their reach maybe beyond just what the traditional assets of their partnerships have You want to bring something up the UN veiled the first ever alternate black Jersey and it has an historic Jersey theme Can you tell us more about that Yes This was an incredible moment for our organization Obviously next year we will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of New Jersey devil's hockey in New Jersey And as a part of that we have never had a third Jersey And so our fans have been clamoring for this for a number of years And so we have been methodically kind of going through this process of what this was going to look like Look like why we were going to do this when the proper time to roll this out was going to be For us we wanted to come up with something that was unique that was thoughtful and that was meaningful And so this third Jersey I will tell you is something that goes back and connects to the roots of hockey in New Jersey And then one of the most unique elements of this was this was actually designed by the goat Marty broder the greatest goalie of all time was heavily invested in this process and helping.

"Of sports I'm Michael Barr I'm scarlet fu And I'm Mike lynch I've just got one word to say The Drake pistons Last year the pistons out of reaching lead One of the last two now they'll do it Well well as lynchy said earlier it sounds like we had to get that off of an 8 track because it's been in the messing with my head So here's the man that's going to defend me We're speaking with Detroit Pistons chief business officer Mike zvox See Mike I was there in 1989 when we wanted all for the Detroit Pistons course I was never on the court But I was there in spirit Well I wasn't there unfortunately but I would love a piece of the jewelry if I could Well welcome to the Bloomberg business of sports show First when I talk about the team itself the pistons is we started the young NBA season and we're just coming back from COVID How does it feel now that you have fans in the stands It's great I mean the return to little Caesars has been a tremendous boost for the team No different than any team players thrive on that fan engagement and energy that they provide But I think the biggest piece for us is the ability to engage with our fans again We've been doing a lot in the community and in and around the city of Detroit But for them to be able to experience a game the presentation all the fanfares that comes with it that's been the most exciting part I got to ask you Mike about the business side of running an organization that's in a rebuilding phase What does rebuilding look like now Because I think every time I hear the word rebuilding I think back to the 76ers and their trust the process mantra in the 2010s and how that influences people's expectations for the return on investment in that process If you're an advertiser if you're an owner of your management for the talent at all affects you differently What does that rebuilding look like for you Try to set it a couple of times it's a restoration He keeps using the word restore And I think that's probably the best most appropriate word to use I mean for us what we've really been focused on for the last let's call it two seasons is restoring the brand Just like we started this conversation there's great heritage and history of this team with championships And I think in the move downtown we really wanted the brand to be reflective of where we're headed So that's been the part that we've been most focused on And in order to accomplish that it's been about authenticity Being authentic to the city of Detroit the people that are in it and making them a part of everything we're doing So whether it's our small business program we've leaned in on whether it's our talent search that we did this summer where all of the arena performers and acts are going to be people from the city of Detroit That really has been an emphasis in focus because we got to be rooted in the city that we call home Hey Mike Tom you had the number one pick with Kate Cunningham Somewhere back in the 80s the NBA went from a team league marketing standpoint to marketing individual players Is that pretty much hold true today Our approach it never built around individual I always look at it as the players are communicators of the brand but not the brand So I think from us you'll continue to see a more team holistic approach when we go to market obviously is a big piece of that We had a great rookie class last year and Olympian and Jeremy grant some great acquisitions like Kelly Olynyk and the off season this year So I think you'll consistently see from us a more team oriented approach I want to build on that I know I hate using the phrase rebuilding And I hear that all the time But it is a rebuilding process And the pistons fans hang tight be patient because Micah I know we're going to come back to the fun that we used to have back in 1989 And I should say also what was it 20 O four I believe Yeah Can they come back once again from the rebuilding process Absolutely I mean I think the pieces are there right Like I just said you're seeing the development of some of our young players Sadiq base had a great start to the season as an example and some of our other guys So I think the building blocks are there This season our guys will continue to develop on and off the court And continue in that restoration process and getting us back to those 89.904 championship years What kind of expectations do you need to manage when you're talking with your corporate partners and trying to attract new corporate partners during a rebuilding time Everyone's on you need everyone on the same page And you want to make sure that there aren't expectations that can't be met but at the same time you want to build that excitement for what's to come not just later this year but in the years to come I think we and we have a little bit of a different approach I think the way that the landscape has changed particularly from an advertiser standpoint this is my 17th season in the business When I first got in it was putting up a logo and more of a prestige purchase Now it's very much an ROI driven conversation How is this accomplishing my marketing goals and objectives as a business Because I have many other options So we take that approach and lend to it It's about how can we utilize the platform that we have to engage our fan base for those in the Detroit metro marketplace and beyond to accomplish those goals Taking it from that approach whether we win 20 games or 65 games it's the same it's the same approach Mike is it a tougher sell to bring.

"Is Bloomberg business and sports with Michael Barr scarlet fu and Mike lynch from Bloomberg radio Thanks for joining us on the Bloomberg business of sports show where we explore the big money issues in the world of sports Michael Barnes I'm Scarlett booth And I'm Mike lynch And let's continue our conversation with Todd buff President top rank the boxing promotion behind world champions like Tyson Fury and Terence Crawford And this is a good time to talk about pay per view And you brought it up earlier in the show when cable television came into play It kind of messed up pay per view as more cable outlets came into play because it wasn't even pay per view back in the day It was just closed circuit and he would go to the arena and you'd watch it on a screen What has changed now with pay per view and is there a business model for it today in boxing When we talk about the shift from media landscape with boxing what happened was its mainstay meaning the size of the boxing product was put behind the paywall Now there's always been a paywall in boxing for a closed circuit like it was when you went to the theaters at the highest level So for those marquee events you paid for them and you went to a theater in the old days right And then it became distributed in the 80 million pay per view homes and you spent 69 or 79 or in May with a package it was a $100 and you did 1.6 million buys It was crazy So there's always been that peer system So I think in today's world what we're seeing is we're seeing that there is a much more profound relationship between the digital providers direct to consumer providers than there is what we came to operators and dishes And I think that's really where we're seeing the delta we're seeing a much more robust responsive pay platform being built through DTC than we are through the cable operators that are still just delivering broadband all your homes So the results of our pay universe is now having a much more profound and responsive results of the sports fans that are connected to direct to consumers like the netflixes of the world or in our case the DSP and plus that is our distributor for most of our files What do the profit margins look like for pay per view versus streaming overall versus being on network television which I know was back in the day I'm just curious if you could break it down for us Well our perspective is it varies very differently right Because we have to take the risk associated with guaranteeing the fighters the revenues they're guarantees So each of those big pay per view events right Has a sits on a a la carte basis other than what our media rights deal is currently with ESPN and Disney So we provide about roughly 30 shows not including pay per view shows and our libraries and shoulder programming and the whole verticals boxing vertical to ESPN gives me ESPN+ and we get the regular shows for that And we provide that and you get to see the G of the Lopez's or the loan and chain goes in the world or the tights and theories who comes over the U.S. and pikes twice on the ESPN+ and expose them to on paper still that's a different model That's an olive heart model and it depends on the deals that you make with the fighters and the athletes and your cost base associated with that So there is no formula Profit margin system that's set up for the patient It's bespoke then Yeah I'm your 100% this both and depends on the profit participation of the athletes and what they're guarantees are Todd how does top rank the gold standard in my book How does it measure a successful fight It's strictly on pay per view subscriptions I looked at the whole body of work as they said right I felt like we made a big move I mean I think it was about three or four years ago when we said listen we see the models shifting Let's bring boxing back to the masses and let's make this deal with the SPN and bring it to you So we're on SportsCenter all the time we're in the chatter with the radio shows all the time And we're running across the tail of the tape on the bottom all the time We were just connected from that So first thing is I want to see boxing be successful and I want you to know all of these fighters names So I don't look at it as just a successful one night I look at it as a successful putting our arms around the brand and elevating the sport on the bigger fights like we just had with fire a wilder and fury in the third fight The success of that was a number of reasons One is everybody was on the edge of their seat and everybody was talking about how this could have been one of the greatest heavyweight fights in one of the best 5 states team in many many decades Two decisive endings always make a difference I can't stand the rhetoric I think we kind of shoot ourselves in the foot when you have a bad decision associated with a big fight because consumer confidence goes low And then I think the third piece is the economics of how much awareness that we create How much should people tune into it How much pay per view did you do What would your live game international And I think those are the economics around it.

"Time talking to the biggest names in sports. I'm Jason Kelly alongside Mike Lynch and Michael Bar today. Thrilled to be joined by Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick, Jack Really Nice to have you with us. It's great to be with you. Thanks for thanks for inviting me to join you. Well, we're happy to have you. And of course, as most of our listeners know in the New York area, you can hear Notre Dame football all season long on Bloomberg. 11 3 out in New York. So let's talk about football to start. We want to talk about lots of different sports. But let's start with football. The season is upon us A very different year here in 2021 2020. Don't want to dwell too much on the past, but your decision to play last year was catalytic. I think it's fair to say in in many ways. Tell us about that decision and how it sort of evolved into where we are today. Yeah, Thank you. I do think it was catalytic. I I think the fate delivered us, Uh, in terms of timing with the Pac 12, the big 10 having decided at that point not to play. Where I think our decision was critical as to whether the rest of football went forward and and the primary dynamic for us was we had made a decision really courageous. One by the university president. To come back to campus to be residential to not educate our students virtually and that sort of gave me my marching orders. Okay, Can we safely play football? If we're coming back to the classroom and the resident's hall, we should be able to come back to football Stadium and we we did a lot of research. Talk to a lot of people convinced ourselves. We could both from the perspective of the student athletes but also allowing students, faculty and staff. Those were only fans to come into the stadium to watch the game they were together all week. Should be able to come into the stadium. So it was a great atmosphere for us, and and it was a rallying point for the campus. Which brings me to the next question. What will football look like in 2021 with fan protocols? Because of what happened with covid last year? What are we going to see this year? There's a great question. Uh, In some ways, this year's, I think, can approve a little harder because it's more fluid. Last year, we went into the season sort of knowing some places, no fans. Some places didn't play. As I said, In our case, we were only introduced students, faculty and staff this year. You've got a bunch of different models out there you you've got some places which are Requiring proof of vaccination or negative test different mask wearing standards, different capacity approaches, and I think what's going to define this year is I think that will get revisited throughout the year and we will never quite have the certainty that we had last year. I do think we'll have more fans will have More energy and more excitement, but I think it's going to be very fluid. Last year, he had a one year experiment in the A. C C Did that help fund the other sports that you were trying to keep afloat during all the Covid? Um, from a financial perspective. It was. Yes, it didn't have much. It didn't have. Much consequence are for us. The significance of it was That through that we were Had assurance that we could play a full schedule and by virtue of that meet our obligations to NBC. And so the NBC media contract was really Our only source of revenue last year because our gate receipts were largely non existent. So Jack expand for us into the other sports and the father of a college lacrosse player, not at Notre Dame, but, uh, you know, you've got a great lacrosse team. You know, baseball, women's basketball, you know, across the board. Athletics are so baked in well beyond, um, the the football team. Help us understand how you made decisions along the way throughout the course of last year, especially at a time when other schools were saying, we just can't afford to play certain Division one sports Well, a real threshold standard for us is that we view all 700 of our student athletes. Has comparable and we want their experience to be as close to the same as we can make it so we didn't make a decision. Like a lot of universities did to play football. We made a decision to play all our sports. And and if if if we weren't convinced we could play the others, we wouldn't have played football because that's our obligation. And so that that really drove it. And you know one of the fascinating things about last year as we all learned so much is we didn't see any transmission of the virus through The activity of playing the games. Um, we we we could trace it to meals We get traced it to some locker room activity, but literally, didn't you know? And you think of sports like football and lacrosse and hockey. Um, we with no evidence that we transmitted the virus by playing the sport. One of the things that Notre Dame has is a very special marriage with NBC and it when I think of the two, it just goes together when I think of college sports. And watching it on TV. How did that whole marriage come together and a special relationship with the network? Well, it it it was the result of a Supreme Court decision. Where, uh, an antitrust case that said the CIA could not Represent the rights of all Colleges and universities. Um and so it's freed up those rights. Um, that then caused, uh, colleges universities to pursue those rights on a conference basis. We had an opportunity as an independent to think about it differently, and some really creative people are athletic director Dick Rosenthal, Ken Shan's ER and take ever saw at NBC. Um, I had a conversation and I know for him, especially tensions are relaying that experience. It happened very quickly. Once the conversation started. We're gonna continue our conversation coming up with Notre Dame athletic Director Jack Swarbrick. That's straight ahead on Bloomberg Businesses. Sports. I'm Jason Kelly.

That's the latest UN Cameron Fairchild. And I'm Susanna Palmer in the Bloomberg 9 16 newsroom Mostly cloudy skies today high near 60.

The number of cases and the number of deaths in Los Angeles from the coronavirus are rising rapidly. On CBS's face the Nation, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti says Part of the reason is simple density. But he adds at home deaths are also increasing. One person is coming home on essential worker there might be five 7 10 people in that household and this is a worrying trend of the fatalities now are not just people with preexisting conditions, 92% of previous deaths where people had an underlying condition that is rapidly falling.

"Of sports from Bloomberg Radio. Thank you very much for joining us for this special holiday edition of the Business of Sports on Michael Bar, along with Jason Kelly and Mike Lynch. Now, fellas. Imagine trying to pilot an NC double a power conference through a pandemic. Well over the summer, we spoke with Big East Commissioner Val Ackerman and Jason and Lindsey. They had a unique idea, and I didn't even know that this existed. But it did. It was involving an insurance policy to help them solidify the conferences. Financials. Now I can imagine at the time when the insurance guy was trying to sell. This went back to the office like we're saying, like, Hey, guys, guess what we sold, but it happened drinks on me with that insurance salesman said, But you know, it's a reminder to Lynch E that. One of the reasons that NC double a basketball and March madness are so important, everything having to do with big time college basketball. That's where all the money is for the NC, double A and so You have to imagine that if you are thinking about the business of sports as we do, you're trying to hedge your bets wherever you can. You know, this is the one interview. They had me falling off my chair. When Val Ackerman made this revelation to us, Let's listen to it and let's get your reaction. I would say the good news for our league. Is that we did have insurance that covered the cancelation of the Big East tournament, So we were protected there. We've got a really strong policy that's in effect for the next two years. That coverage is really hard to find. But we had it and then we have been carefully nurturing a reserve fund that was set up when the conference we configured in 2013. And with the approval of our board, we were able to access funds from our reserves that help mitigate some of the loss. But it was painful. And that is Val Ackerman. She is the commissioner of the Big East, Of course, as a proud Georgetown alum. I think a lot about Big East basketball, even if the Big East is not what it once was, and I don't need to be reminded of that guy's but financially clearly, very smart. I mean, the other thing that strikes me as we listen to Val Ackerman there and You know, I think back to last week's conversation with Joe No. Sarah talking about the future of college sports. College sports were forever changed. Everything was forever changed in 2020, but I think we're gonna look back on 2020 as the end of an era in some ways for college sports, where we really laid bare some of the I dare say it, Lynch. He kind of perverse economics underneath amateur athletics. Well, without question thing. Big East deal goes for two more years, so they're covered through 21 threw 2022 I remember the conversation with Val Ackerman back in July, and she makes a suggestion, which I think made a lot of sense. The Big East geographically stretches from Rhode Island with Providence. To Nebraska, where with Creighton University and rather than having the women's soccer team from Providence travel all the way to Nebraska. Maybe they should look at a regional schedule. With all the schools, for instance, Georgetown would plate schools within a two hour drive of them. Same thing for the Paul ST John's. Seton Hall villain over Butler out in Indianapolis Xavier down in Cincinnati and, you know she's really It's just has great foresight. And obviously, you know, that's why she's a great commissioner of great conference that looks like it's going to survive. They don't have a football team, which is, you know it, but they're basketball wise. They're one of the biggest conferences and they have Yukon back in their conference now, so with that insurance policy and may be altering some of the schedules with some of these nonrevenue sports Val Ackerman is going to be a survivor with their conference, the Big East, You know, Bar. I do think about the future of college sports here and you know, big time College football is facing a bit of a reckoning. They kind of barreled through it. In many ways, I do think we're going to be talking about the cost literally and figuratively of that for some time to come Barrel through. It is a great phrase they use because I think if you're going to do this again next year, which they are obviously Because it's too much money involved one but you have to have a better plan for it on and you got a plan, and I've said this many times. Covert is going to be there. You know how you got to get the vaccine distribution. You guys, You have to get all of this going. If there's gonna be any resemblance of what we used to know as collegiate sports, or any sports for that manages Yeah, And, you know, I do think back to that conversation with no, Sarah in so far as you know, we've got the Supreme Court taking up college athletics. We've got the U. S senate introducing legislation around college athletics, and I do wonder if The pandemic, the health pandemic on the one hand and the reckoning with a quality and racial justice. We don't talk about that a little bit more later on in the show. If this has accelerated the conversation around Big time college sports and college sports. Sort of existentially how it fits in. Yeah, the student athlete thing really bothers me. Every time I go to like an NC double a basketball thing, they The moderator. I says that we will now have the student athletes any more. Questions for the student athletes are student athletes. Representatives today or Jason Kelly and I are other student athlete representative is Michael Bar, and they use that. Student athlete that's see that's a moniker for everybody to sit down there. Now. When was the last time you heard a star athlete in the Power five conference or a big conference in basketball be ineligible to play because of academic failed their academic difficulty? It never happens. So this moniker of student athlete really is a farce. They are They're facilitators, their athletes that play a sport that bring in the great revenues to schools that is so enticing and so tempting that it's impossible to turn down because it funds faculty at funds buildings that funds programs and it funds other sports. So Bart However, to mystic are you that something changes here. I am optimistic because covert was the thing that is going, I think is going to be the moment that's going to change everything That's going to force change because everybody Got affected by this covert doesn't give a flying hoot whether you're a man or woman or you're black or you're white or of color. They don't care. That virus does not care so it it involves everybody. And if you approach it from that way, maybe we have a chance, fellas. All right, well coming up. We're gonna have Maura of this special holiday edition on the business of sports, and we're going to turn our attention to the other topic that rightly dominated so many of our conversations. And that is the long overdue reckoning.

"Is no exception. Jason Kelly, along with Mike Lynch and Michael Bar today we're speaking with Super Bowl winning head coach NFL analyst Brian Billick. Brian Really Nice to have you with us. You and I were talking before we came. On air. Last time we saw each other in person radio road down in Miami seems like a long time ago. Yeah million years ago, and it begs the question. See what the league does going forward. The Super Bowl this year. A Z, you know, you know, just in radio row, which those who have never been there. It's just a conventional huge convention with virtually every radio and TV station in the country. All of you know, all jammed together in a tight space. It's an incredible thing to experience. Very efficient for obviously talent and for the for the stations, But obviously that can't go on the NFL experience itself, which goes on it's super, along with a myriad of other things. It's hard to imagine that advertisers I don't want to participate in that I got a feeling that the Super Bowl that goes on this year is going to be like when we haven't seen in decades. Well, there's no way in the world. I'm going to let the elephant in the room go by Mr Super Bowl 35 Mourning ring, and I always think about that when you were coaching the Ravens and you watching that game, the experience of winning a Super Bowl so many questions I have but Can you take us through that? Because that has to be something off. Well, you know a lot of people in the professions. I don't know that there's a specific moment that you could point to and say yes, this was A seminal moment of your professional career were obviously when you're in a suitable as a pro coach. You kind of note this bit, you know, and the great thing for me personally, I'll say Is that We had that game wound up by pretty much the middle of the third quarter, So you had kind of a quarter and rather than a game that's going down the final minutes. You don't know what the outcome's gonna be. I had it about a quarter and a half. Just kind of take it all in and look around going. Yeah, this is this is pretty cool. So, Yeah, it was a pretty special moment. Hey, Brian, This is my clench up in Boston of We've been to a few Super Bowls here and there over the years. Getting to the Super Bowl this year without the OT ace without many camps without preseason games. You see it being a coach like an Andy Reda P. Carol, Bill Bella Check John Har Bara, Gary Payton, Mike Tomlin. Someone who has experience has experienced system and won't have to go through any of the pitfalls of trying to play is trying to adjust to get to know each other. You know, it's interesting. I thought the opening week was really quite representative of the level of play that we'd expect an opening week. In other words, Challenge someone to show me the opening week in years past versus this year and say there's a discernible difference. So that touch that the OT a training camps to be altered way that we approached this year. I don't know that it really had an adverse effect. Clearly, those teams that are coming together for the first time, just as you alluded to Tom Brady down in Tampa Bay, Dallas Cowboys like McCarthy taking over certainly in Cleveland. Will you have a new coach again? The fifth coach 1/4 offense that Baker Mayfield Go through. Absolutely those teams off that that lack of offseason since it's your first year is gonna have or oven effect, but I think that will diminish it. Go forward. Yes. Do the teams that have the experience have been together? Are they going to start faster? Is that advantage? Yes, but as we progress through the year, I don't know if it's enough to say Well, it's enough of the dance, you say clearly, that's the way it's going to go down now. The two best teams have seen our teams that have incredible continuity. Talking about kids City in Baltimore, both in terms of coaching staff, their players quarterback position, so yeah, clearly, that's advantage compared to some of the other teams that were tryingto crack into that level that we're having to overcome. Ah, new system at a time where you really have the off season that you traditionally do. All right. So Brian, as you watched week one and as people are listening to this, we're getting ready for week to what is different. What is different about this product as you are viewing it from the perspective of especially a former coach, But now someone whose job it is to talk about this and break it down. Well, obviously the biggest difference as you watch the game. If I look at it as a consumer, it has a different feel for it. Although the league I gotta tell you, I thought they did a pretty good job, obviously playing in front of an empty stadium. Is a unique experience. And in talking with some of the coaches, they did talk about how that is a different challenge, keeping the energy level of your players up to make it, you know, not feel like just scrimmage or another practice. But from the fans standpoint, watching, you know the way they piped in music, whether it wass the television Broadcast units that did it or there at the stadium themselves. I thought you kind of got used to it and it had a pretty normal feel to it in terms of the mechanics of the game and the player's I will tell you this, but coaches said this is the healthiest In general, the healthiest they've ever come in to start a season because of the way they ran the Aussies and don't think for a second. Now the players are going to take note of that and say, Look, we seem to be playing the game at the same level and we're healthier. Do we really need that? Offseason O th we really need to have games. Scrimmage is one, which is kind of continued to do it this way. Because the players obviously would prefer to do it that way and not have to go through the rigours off the pretty seeking games and scrimmages and and it's gonna be a tough argument for the league to say. Oh, no, no, we need to go backto having pre season gets Coach. Big news obviously, from the big 10. They're going to play football and they're going to try to do it at the end of October, and that means all of the teams in the big 10. Have to now get into football shape within five weeks. Can you give us your thoughts about that? That has to be tough? I think they'll be able to do that because they've been conditioning and doing that's all along. They know if they were going to play, so obviously the coaches needed to temper exactly what they're doing. But you think about the NFL, they had basically six weeks. A party to which they had no contact with their players that they went through a progression of training. You know, there's three types of conditions. Cardiovascular will be fine that way. There's there's getting into football shape, which is the large muscle groups that hands the glutes quiet. That takes a certain amount of orchestras. They'll get to that. But you have to get into hitting shape to that. That's a legitimate perspective. How much hitting can I get away with on my own team so that I show up at the open are ready to play? What is obviously a very physically violent game. And that's the one that challenges you to boast, But I think we just talked about the NFL. I think they stepped up to a pretty good, so I imagined the fight we grant occurred. The big 10. I don't know what they'll handle it really well, they've got more of a head start. But certainly the NFL did on. I think the product will be pretty good. All right. Stay tuned for more of our conversation with Brian Billick. Of course, Super Bowl winning coach is we're just discussing and current NFL analyst that straight ahead on Bloomberg businesses. Sports. I'm Jason Kelly.

We're gonna explore the big money issues in the world of tennis with Ken Solomon, the president of the tennis Channel can really good to have you here. I so wish that I was spending this labor day trying to chase you through the Compound, the complex the place where it all happens in Queens. I mean, that's what we're supposed to be doing right? What a year it is. It's like an obstacle course. Most of the time. I mean, you have to go into training. Just duplicate what we're normally doing. We cover more miles on the players, I think, don't we? Yeah, absolutely. So tell us. I mean to start like, how have you been? How's the run up to all of this Been for you and your team? Yeah, well, the good news is someone said in in early March, when Indian Wells was canceled in the course of 24 hours, and I think really, in the way started this all off. It was, you know, the first week in March March, 8 to be exact, and it was Of a 24 hour decision and the world was shot. Some of it Well, you guys are built for this and we are because tennis Always throws a curveball that you whether it's massive heat or political unrest, or or, you know, rain delays. Whatever it is, there's always something and so we are built to build the suit to fit. This one's been a little crazy, but but run up has been, you know, for the most part. Pretty good. We've written the Bronco and just tried to take care of the tennis fans and the tennis world. And also just tell stories over the course of the whole thing. We stayed on live all the way through. But really from right after that moment through May and then starting in May, you know we started the reopen tour. There were these regional events with a good portion of the folks that are playing in the open, just playing in their regional areas. Whether it was in Europe or or in the U. S on the sort of eastern or Western Coast we had Way started May 1st in West Palm Beach, But we also had stuff going on in Germany and then California and all over Europe, and you know it went off pretty much without a hitch, and we're able to From May through, Really Lexington. Keep people entertained with top flight and tennis. We've been running the drills get ready for the open. Never mind writing a Bronco. You guys have been riding a bull, and I mean one there in the cold in crisis. Oh, my goodness. I can the good thing about this in tennis and maybe for other sports as well.

I think we're often business perspective, thinking about the impact that the virus is having a cross country. Bloomberg business of Sports from Bloomberg Radio. Hello, I'm Jason Kelly and Michaela and I'm Michael Bar Over the next hour. We will explore the big money issues in the world of sports and talk to some of the biggest players in the industry. And nothing bigger than big new arenas later on, we're going to talk way the Oak View Group's CEO Tim Like Wiki, He is the developer of that big new complex not too far from us here in New York City over in Belmont lots to talk about there, but first, let's talk a lot if we can, or at least a little bit because we don't know that much about what's going on in sports right now, guys, and I'll just set the table by saying We're recording this on Friday morning. The situation it feels like in every major sport, but especially in baseball. Mike Lynch, it's fluid. It's fluid, and I think the theme song for the year 2020 is no end in sight, and every single day we get together, something has changed. And fluid is the word of the day as well. Major League Baseball continues to have problems with players testing positive, and one of the disturbing signs here is this is the first time that someone West of the East Coast has actually tested positive. It had been really pretty much restricted to Miami in Philadelphia area and now ST Louis Cardinals have had some positive tests, postponing From one of their games this weekend. So Michael Bar. We're gonna finish this season. What's your prediction? Hate? I was very positive thinking that we were gonna have Ah, season, but I'm seeing and now it looks like all hell is breaking loose. I mean, it's like, Mike said. Now we're seeing something on the West Coast with the cardinal's. I mean, I don't see how in the world this is going to happen. I think what we have at least six teams involved. Where they have to cancel going. We're supposed to play each other, and they've canceled games right now, And that's as of right now on Friday morning, we don't know how that's going to change over the next 24 hours, And as Mike Lynch alluded to, you know, I feel like every day even right after we know from talking to each other. There is some news. There's some tweets. There's some report. On this is extending. I think this uncertainty beyond baseball into college sports, and certainly it feels like the thing that is looming looming looming out. There is pro football. We don't have a lot of information at this point. Roger Goodell as he traditionally is pretty tight lipped about this, but If baseball can't figure this out, it's hard to see how college sports and pro football happen in any meaningful way. Mike Lynch Well, they have the luxury of the calendar so far that the other sports didn't have because they haven't been directly impacted. But is we crossed H stay off the calendar and we're approaching August is coming up. Teams are reporting to camps. The Buffalo Bills sent a bunch of rookies home. Minnesota Vikings have some positive tests, and his players began to trickle in. Remember, the two sports that are not involved in the bottle are major league baseball in the National Football League. The other teams that are in the bubble, the MBA, the NHL, Major League Soccer and the WN BA knock on wood. The bubbles working for them without the bubble. It doesn't. It's not working for baseball, and I don't see how it's going to work for football. So let's end up our little chat talking about probably. I think I can say one of our favorite stories of the week, in part because it's a happy story and in part because it crosses to sports. What do you do when you have a contract that could pay you half a $1,000,000,000? And your name is Patrick Mahomes, Michael and you put it great. Earlier in the week, you walk across the street by a part of the baseball team. You walk right out of Arrowhead Stadium go across the parking lot right into Kauffman Stadium, which they're adjacent to each other right on I 70 and out. In Kansas City, and you say, you know what? I was drafted by the Tigers in 20 Fortin? My dad played Major league baseball. I want a piece of this action. So you know what, rather than put the money in the old Kansas City savings and loan. I'm gonna buy a piece of the Kansas City Royals. And that's exactly what Patrick Mahomes did pretty good, and I was trying to think racking my brain. What active players actually own part of another professional team, and I could come up with Serena and Venus Williams. Part owners of the Miami Dolphins. And I would note LeBron James and owner of Liverpool FC over in the English premiership. So a transatlantic deal there but a successful one given that Liverpool I believe won the Premiership championship. I I loved the cross sport nature of this to Michael Bar, and you know this is a young guy with a lot of ambition, not just on the field. But as a business person you don't love too, is that he just said to Kansas City. I'm here. You all know I'm here, so I'm not going anywhere, and I liked it. And I think it's a wise move. Ah, this young man is obviously he is the cream of the crop for the NFL and ah, he can He could be a powerhouse. As this goes along, I have nothingto accolades for its interesting, Teo. I'm glad you brought that up because interesting to note the investment in his own city in many ways, now, obviously given this massive contract that he just signed, he's with the Kansas City Chiefs for a while, but that probably didn't guarantee that if he was going to make this deal He would make it with the local team feels like he's a Kansas City guy. Now for sure. Absolutely..
