"This is your fault. No, I'm just kidding. Okay. I have it up now. I have my personal, you work off of my personal Gmail drive, and then I write off of my work Gmail drive. Oh, really? Sometimes. It depends on what depends on what's going down. Okay. All right. Well, why don't you, I can't remember what we did. I think Peter was the last one who took the quiz. You want to take the odds I'll take the evens? I'll take the odds. Okay. Go ahead. All right, Albert. Question number one, the category is in celebration of Rob Gronkowski's retirement. How many Gronkowski's played at least one snap in the NFL, this is not sanctioned by Gary, but I'm gonna offer you .25 bonus points if you can name the Gronkowski brothers who played in the NFL. I believe the number is three. And it's Dan and Chris also played in the league and then the youngest I believe is Gordy. He didn't, I don't think he made it to the NFL, but he played at Kansas state and the oldest was the oldest was a baseball player. Incorrect. Is it four? The answer is four. You forgot about Glenn Gronkowski. Yeah, no. He's the youngest one. That's the one who played the Kansas state, right? Yep. Glen. He made it to the league. He did, he played. Boy, I just had his pro football. Fullback for the bills. How many games did you play? And he was on the New England practice squad. You won a Super Bowl. Did he really? Yes. He played. I knew Dan and Chris did, but I didn't know the youngest one did. He played 8 offensive snaps for the bills in 2016. And that's like his entire career was. I think he can remember all 8 snaps. Okay. I saw him play in high school. I'm disappointed in myself. He's like, well, he went to high school and buffalo. Because rob was the only one that didn't go to hire. He went to his last year, high school was like in Pittsburgh or something. Yep. Yeah. Yeah, Glenn stayed up there in western New York. West Seneca maybe? I want to be misremembering Amherst with Seneca, williamsville, williamsville north. He wasn't a baldwinsville B and that's all that matters. Damn it, I'm disappointed in myself. That should have been a layout for one. Next one is geography. You, Albert breer, famously, or infamously. Spurred Bill Belichick's onto Cincinnati catch phrase, and I think 2014, right? Yeah, it was when they won their first Super Bowl in ten years, made me look like a real genius. They've got blown out by the chiefs. I actually think so he got blown up by the chiefs. And I was asking if they had done enough to build a champion around Tom Brady with him getting older. I don't think that they lost another game that year. They wound up winning three of the next 5 super bowls and playing for the next 5. So apparently they had done enough to build around Tom Brady. Yeah. But that was the year of the famous on to Cincinnati. Press conference, my question to you is what NFL city is closest to Cincinnati. Indianapolis. That is correct. It's an hour and a half. Yeah? Most people would have said Cleveland. Crown jewel. But I went to school in Columbus, so I have like an idea of geography. Plus I always do that drive during training camp. Okay, all right. Very good. All right, question number three music in the arts Albert, which band has more RIAA certified platinum records, the band Boston or the mighty mighty boss tones. What's the. RIAA what? Certified platinum, which one has more platinum albums. Platinum albums, okay. I'm gonna say the mighty mighty bosstones. Oh. That is incorrect. The mighty mighty boss tones had one. My guess is for knock on wood, right? 'cause I thought like I thought Boston was kind of like a one hit one. No, Boston had some hits. Boston's catalog was fairly deep. Gary and I got into a fight about last week's numbers. So we were doing two hits. I feel like my Boston's were around for longer than Boston. That's why I said they were around forever, but they just had the one breakthrough hit. The impression that I get that album. And then Boston just sort of, yeah, Boston was big and like the 70s. The debate last week, Albert, and you will find this as laughable as I do because we're about the same age. Connor was trying to claim that the offspring was a two hit wonder. Oh, and I was like, there were three hits on smash. No, they were around for a lot longer than that. Was that like that was like already around 2000 maybe, right? It was come out and play was like mid 90s. I want to say like 94, 95, I think. Maybe that far back. I think so. Boston was more than a feeling. It was Amanda. It was smoking, rock and roll band. I mean, they were yeah, I mean, that was the height of arena rock. As Conor and I both know after reading their Wikipedia page. 5 minutes ago. I always remember the cover of the greatest hits record that was like a UFO landing on. What was the album was jock rock? That's what it was called, right? The albums that you could buy, like they had the commercials on TV, right? Yes. That's what it was, yeah. Different two different things. All right, that's what I call music volume one to three. Boston was definitely on now one. It was a big now, and then at the underlying said that's what I call music on it. The one that came out in 76. Question number four, this is fashion is the category. Pat patriot, the iconic logo who formerly appeared on the Patriots helmets. What color is his hat? Brown. Red. Is it Rhett? Red Albert. It's a try. But it's red. Is it red? Yeah. So I just clinched the worst floor, I think, right? It depends what kind of bonus point Connor just goes rogue with the bonus points. We'll see. I'll give you a chance. I haven't in my head is brown. No. It's all red, white, and blue. And I thought the thing that would trip you up is the current one, the Elvis logo, is blue on the hats blue. Yeah. That was the curve ball. Okay, question number 5, Moneyball category. Again, chance to earn some bonus points here. Albert Ohio State has 6 alums attempting more than 300 passes in the NFL named the only one that has more touchdowns than interceptions in his entire career. Mike Tom Zach. Kent Graham. Tom's at times. Tom Zach is a good guest. Tom Zach. Holds all the times that's got probably the most yards, right? Huh? Is that leads in everything cumulatively, but he.

"NFL circles, especially the coaching community, the minority coaching community, NFL. I think there was a little bit of heat building on Mike Tomlin because until he promoted Terrell Austin to defensive coordinator this off season, he had never had a black coordinator offense or defense or anything like that. So here is Mike Tom on one of the few head coaches in the NFL. In position to sort of get these guys, some of these guys ready to be head coaches and, you know, he wasn't being overly proactive about that. And now he has Tara Austin and he brings he brings in Brian Flores and I think it's a great move because Tara Austin is his forte is more in coverages and Brian Flores as we know from his time in New England and also Miami, Brian Flores is one of the most creative front 7 schemers in the league. I mean, the amoeba defense here was one of his big things. I think the Steelers have gotten too stale there with their zone blitz and the Steelers. They got to be blitz Berg and they got to stay strong to their roots as the zone blitz and stuff like that when it's like, all right, you know, NFL offenses have kind of evolved since then and you're not really fooling these guys with the zone blitz as much anymore. But I think that Flores his ability to put his flavor on the front 7 will only help those guys more TJ watt and those guys, I think it's a really good fit. I think it'll bring a lot of fresh ideas to the Steelers defense where they really need some and so I thought that was interesting also I haven't seen the HBO real sports interview yet I guess it was on last night that fours did. I guess the noteworthy thing was that he said that he has not communicated at all with Bill Belichick since the infamous text message that he basically used to launch his lawsuit against the league and you know he said that he still has nothing against Bill and he's.

"Kevin Owens. Hey, if you release me, this money's guaranteed. Well, but they get, you know, they get extra money if they're on TV and they're actually working. So it might just be like, you get paid like your standard thing without. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Showing up. It's definitely less pay. So I don't know, but he's gotta be a W bound, right? Maybe? Is a room for him? Is there room? They have freaking sting wrestling. Of course there's one. William regal, too. Back to impact. I hope not. Also WWE confirmed that Sasha Banks will be out of action for 6 to 8 weeks after suffering a foot injury at a recent house show. That's a shame that she won't be in the rumble. I know. If anyone should win the fucking Royal Rumble, you know, she deserves that. She needs a Royal Rumble win. I mean, this year. This year we won't live, obviously, but she should win at one of these fucking years. Yeah. She also starred in the opening video package for the NCAA college football championship game. Did you see it out now? No. It didn't make any sense. It was so weird. It was just like this futuristic thing. She's in this futuristic outfit. And it was just weird. She just plays the game, I don't know, I didn't get it. But good for her. And it was exposure. It was ESPN. It was ABC and they have nothing to do with wrestling. They have no money in wrestling. So I was kind of surprised. Right. They're just like, you know, they use the wrestlers all the time, because they're promoting SmackDown, of course. Of course. Yeah, good for her. Yeah. Also former WWE commentator Tom Phillips is the new voice of Impact Wrestling. Is that Mike Tom or Tom Mike? Tom Mike is going by his real name now, Tom hanifen, Hannah fan. Yeah. That's a facebooker, right? That's the facebooker. Okay, cool, cool. Yeah. Yeah, someone recently showed me his girlfriend and she's some like model. Oh, yeah? Yeah. So in fact, that's it. She's getting face off as we speak. Probably. What time is it? Facebook a clock. That's my favorite time of day. Also, who are you missing on raw this week? Rah rah. Somebody. Kevin Owens. Kevin Owens? Yeah. Kevin Owens wasn't a raw because his wife tested positive for COVID. Posted that on. Imagine having to make that phone call with your Kevin Owens. Hey, guess what? Oh, you do it. Hey, like he's excited Vince. He's excited. Yeah, he doesn't want to kind of. Look, my wife's got COVID, so I can't make it, okay? I'm sorry. Hooray. I mean, combine. Yeah, I'll see you in 6 months. It's gonna be a while. I still got paid, right? Right? Right? But I mean, he might have it too, you know, 'cause he lives with her. We don't even know, but that's what we know is that she posted that she has it. Maybe he was like, post that you have COVID, and then I went off to go to work. He just asked for proof. It's private. Yeah. No, they can't ask for her for proof, right? Yeah. Any other news? Yeah, I have some things. So WrestleMania weekend is starting to shape up. There's always a shit ton of events. So GCW is going to have a few shows. Triple-A lucha libre? Well, yeah, yeah, yeah. Let me see. Matt cardona is a major wrestling figure podcast is going to be on Thursday. They're going to have a live show. That's a good shit. Yeah, it is, yeah, yeah. Also, Friday competing with SmackDown, Ring of Honor, super card of honor is going to be going on. So I thought that was kind of interesting. I guess they're unpausing for WrestleMania weekend. Yeah, and then there's also going to be an Impact Wrestling event later that night as well. And yeah, that's about it. You know, Russell con will be going on all weekend. Cool. Yeah, so. All right. Wrestle gun? Yeah. I'll be there. Hopefully. We're the under dagger because we need that. We need to really create that picture. It'll be $500. And probably. All right, bye, Sean. Wait, dome. Maybe it's about to fire me. I'm next the man. Come on. Maybe if we bring little Sean, you'll do it for free. We've signed this. No, but I'll buy it from you for $20. You see that stain? That's me in a day. All right, on to rumors. Rumors. Kevin Owens wins back the universal title? Maybe. Bellar club to finally get a second member. Brock Lesnar willingly works a full schedule. No chance. Next year's WrestleMania will be in Saudi Arabia? Ringside news is reporting that WWE and AEW are in talks for an upcoming project. Oh, who books that? I'm not sure what that could mean. But because WWE brought in Mickey James from impact, there's rumors that they might bring in an AW star or two for the men's Royal Rumble. I mean, the only one you'd want to see is Kenny Omega really. Why? I don't know. Why does it have to be Kenny Omega? Because he's the biggest name. I could see it being Jericho, just 'cause he's been there. He was on stone colds, podcasts. Maybe, yeah. Yeah. Do you think it happens? You think someone from AW shows up? Sure, why not? Okay. They bring in like Lou cobbs. They bring in hook, hook. Michael Cole goes apeshit over. Is that hook? That's who. Yeah, that'd be hilarious. And then torque comes out toward a cork, we finally have it. Hooked. PWInsider reports that Drew McIntyre has legit neck problems, and that's why he was written off TV. This stupid neck. WWE is hoping that he could avoid surgery by taking time off, but it seems unlikely. Apparently he met with the WWE doctors and it's possible that he could be having neck surgery. Yeah. So if that's true, he's gonna be gone for a long time. Yeah. So get well soon. Get well soon. Also according to Dave Meltzer, Becky Lynch will no longer be using the man gimmick anymore to do Ric Flair owning the rights to the man in pro wrestling. Yeah. Right. They were fighting over it in court and apparently Rick won. Fighting over what? Like why didn't he just go? You can use my thing for well, I think that's $20,000. I think that's what it is and they don't want to pay him for it, so she's no longer the man. That's why she's big time backs or the goat with that weird graphic. So like even if you like walk up to Ric Flair, like does he get a nickel every time you say like hey Ric Flair, you're the man. And he's like, hey. Remember me? You owe me 12 bucks. Yeah. All that happens like this.

"Yeah. That's funny. Funny. Well, you didn't laugh. Okay. So then we have riddle versus Chad Gable and riddle wins with the floating bro, but after the match, Otis runs him over, so we have Randy Orton versus Otis. Gordon goes for the RKO, but fails three times. Otis then goes for the Vader bomb, but he misses and Orton finally hits the RKO for the win. So why do we need to see this magic day one? No, we're not seeing this at day one. Oh, that's right. That's right. Someone else won. Yeah. After the match, riddle reveals his Christmas present to Randy and it's a really big hug. And it was great how Randy hugged him. And then he had them again. He faked an RKO. And the crowd was chanting for him to do it and riddle's like, it's okay, Randy, nobody will know. And Orton's like, what do you? Do you think no one's here right now? Right. How are you, riddle? Yeah. Get it? Next up, we have a video package for an up and coming wrestler.

Once he's coming. That's a lot of that's a lot of what does that look like. Cue the picture of mad cat moss. Exactly. That's it. It's like, that was all just veer. Has been blue balled for three months. And he still just coming soon. There's no like the next week. They might as well just have been like next year. He's creating next year. Coming next year. Coming soon video Montage. I mean, soon? Like quarter one or a quarter two and like take it easy. We're not in any rush for this, okay? You know? Right. Next up, Kevin Patrick interviews Kevin Owens backstage. And if it weren't for Kevin Owens, this whole episode of raw would have been unwatchable, but maybe with you say that every episode. Well, yeah, but like it seemed like since he resigned and because a lot of wrestlers were out with COVID, they really made this the Kevin Owens show this week. And as they should, as they should, he had a lot of great lines and audio that I have. First we watch an iPhone promo from Big E at home and of course he hypes the championship match and says, I didn't come this far to only come this far. And viewers like at least you came. Yeah. Let me come. He let you come. Over here, not climbing. If COVID did anything coming, I'm not coming. If we can look at the what is it? Oh God. I can't think of it now. If there's any one good thing that COVID gave us, it stopped Vince McMahon from being on the show this week. Yeah. But anyways, here's KO's response. Billy's wrong. Okay, I heard all that. You know, it's about his story. It's about him overcoming the odds showing up for work every week. Why not this week now? That's why he's something from his house. I'm here. I saw it for like every week. It's all my story. And you know my story is Kevin. I don't like it. Pick another one. You have one week to think about it. It's about my story. The important Kevin story. And my story so far, everything has been open my plan. My perfect plan and everything is going off without a hitch. I got into this WWE title actually day one. Me and some problems are best friends. And as such, last week, our plan, my client, it was my idea. We took Bobby Lashley out. Did you see it? Did you see it not Kevin? It was amazing. It was my idea. Seth was there. He was there. He did stuff, but it was my idea. And the next part of my plan is that day one, when I win the WWE Championship, watch me do it. The problem with that, all right? Think about that. It's burnt, your name's burnt. It's burnt. Your name is birth. I mean, I haven't let Kevin Owens do anything like that in a long time. No. It was all part of my plan to not get any title match for 5 years. Then negotiate an amazing deal, right? I just get to be me. Absolutely. Fine, love. And that whole like, you know, love Kevin. Your name's Kevin. I don't like it. And then he calls him, what do you think, not Kevin? Like, that's like the Chris Jericho when he was calling he was getting Mike Roman Tom Phillips confused and calling them the other names and then he was calling on Mike Tom Tom Mike. That was so good. Oh man. More Kevin Owens to come, though. First, we have a Dana Brooke and Reggie versus our truth and Tamina. Yes. Do you love the 24/7 title? The what? You love mixed tag team matches? 'cause you'll love this. All the things we took on both of me put them together. The scissor. Yes. Yes. So Reggie beach truth with a roll up. After the match. How many are we there for? It's a 24/7 title match. That is true. Well, it wasn't for the title. Well, the champion is there. The title was in the vicinity. Fair enough. Yeah. Could you in your partner in that match and win the title? I don't know. What are the rules? Tell me now. Reggie should be champion, I think. I think that's I think so. After the match, Tamina takes a swing of truth, but he ducks, then Tamina goes after. Reggie, but he ducks. You know, she should learn or do some sort of scouting. But then Dana hits like one move on Tamina and then Dana and Reggie leave together to go have sex and regal the title, I guess, I don't know. Title deserve to be regaled, it's that one. Yes. For sure. And your show the world. Okay, beer, we're gonna need you over by this title. Wow, what a brand new. It looks like the Intercontinental Championship from years past. It's all white. It looks beautiful. Looks great. All right, I'll see you guys. Next up, Megan Moran interviews Nikki ash backstage. She says, ria's pep talks have helped put her in the right mindset. Queen Selena and carmela every week trying to get in our heads and bring us down if anything they just need a stronger stronger one would like to see the current time chunks put their money whether or not they are. Because Rhea and I especially challenge Elena and cornella to WWE women's Tag Team Championship rematch. Boom, step. Kapow. Kapow. What company was these titles? Oh, WWE. Okay, thank you. Yeah.

"You know, you know what I mean? It's like there's a different societal standard and not everybody wants to be a part of that. He wants to go coaching balls, so good at him, but he was definitely scared of the SEC smoke for sure. USC I can't get a feel for her because they've had a couple of runs, obviously. Their most famous player is OJ. Their most famous team was just completely in disgrace with some of the scanners they had. Those mid 2000s USC teams, which I was living here at the time. That was a thing because the Lakers sucked. They kind of had the alpha dog status in LA, which is crazy, but it's true for a couple of years. USC was the most important team here. Kobe was going 40 42 every year and USC was all anyone talked about. And the UCLA fans were so mad. I'm sure you've enjoyed that too. The UCLA USC thing is actually pretty enjoyable. There's real hatred. I didn't know that until I moved out here. The two fan base is really don't like each other. So now UCLA's doing better and then you have USC they go get this kick ass coach, although I agree with you. It's a little suspicious that he fled. Yeah. He went running in the other direction, but still, it's better than any situation I've had in a while. For sure. The USC during that time, it was very pretty football. Very pretty football. Mid 2000s, mid 2000s, yeah. Yeah. Very, very pretty football. Pretty boy football. Sudden, fast, glitzy, glamour, hardware taken down. When you look back at the run, you can make some arguments that the run is not really as successful as what people remember. What championship they split with us? Yeah. Another championship they went out, right? And then they lost. And Vince Young, who's now a restaurant owner? To viz. Who's doing his steakhouse things? Killing it. But what you can't deny is it was amazing to watch. By absolutely amazing to watch Reggie and lindell and Matt and Mike and all of those guys Carson Palmer even a little bit before them. It was really, really fun football to watch. But you know, who knows if he can bring that back and think of Riley can bring that back, but he's definitely going to have a chance. He's going to bring in great quarterbacks. Have a great offense. His teams have been criticized before for being soft. And that was a concern when he was coming to LSU because you can not be soft in the SEC. But he's going to have his pick of the litter if he builds a wall around the LA area. One of the great names to Lincoln Riley. That sounds like a John Grissom John griss and Matthew McConaughey plays Lincoln Riley. Yeah. He's trying to invest years old. 38 years old. 38 years old, 38 year old college football head coach, which means that if he can build a culture there and he has a bolt for the NFL, because that's always a thing with him too. He looks longingly sometimes at the cowboys job. But if he doesn't vote for the NFL, he sticks around. That's a prolonged era of winning at SE if he can get it done. A prolonged era of winning. Can I tell you who has written for LSU to get as just because we're Friends, I had at least a slight interest. I don't like Alabama. I'm on the record as I think savings account coward. He should come back to the NFL. I've made that point many times. Come back to the NFL Sabin. Come where the real coaches are. Deal with the bill belichicks. Said it just kicking ass. You guaranteed. You said it this year. He team's not even good. He's gone ten in one. Challenge yourself Nick Saban. But I wanted Tomlin. I didn't have any good. I didn't say they weren't good. I know. Down here and they're like, anyone. I want a Tomlin to go to LSU. I thought it would have been fun to watch Tom and coach a college team for like three years. It also would have gotten him out of the NFL. But I thought Mike Tomlin college coach would have been just amazing 'cause I love Mike Tom and he's one of my favorites. I was so fascinated with it. Like, does how does Mike Tomlin recruit? Does Mike Tomlin go into a living room and just look at the parents and go, okay, I will let you know something, okay? Your son is going to LSU. That was the take. It's like, how does he not get whoever he wants? He was at 99% of the guys. Yeah, I'm telling you right now. I'm telling you I'm in here, I'm a leader of men. I'm an intense head football coach. You pack them up right now as a matter of fact. I'm not even waiting to the fall. He's coming back on the plane with me right now. All right? Don't want to have any more talk about it here. So it's going to LSU. I was just so interested in how that was going to work. And what were you interested in? He would have gotten every recruit he wanted. It would have been so much fun. It would be like if Denzel was a coach. Then I was like, I've decided to become a college football coach. I'm just going to walk into people's living rooms and picking whatever parts I want. Do you ever but like Mike Tomlin does that weird thing to where he weirdly gets jazzed up about specific words in a sentence? You know, like he'll say a whole sentence regular and then he'll be like, you know, we came out with a lot of defensive intensity. Be like, yo, what's up with this guy? So I just wonder how that would work in college, but if you can bring a pro system to college, you're gonna have a lot of success man. I mean, he is the Steelers team. It's still not out of the playoff race and they're in atrocity. They're completely done on defense. They've had a ton of injuries. Roethlisberger can't do anything anymore. They lost Schuster for the year. They should be one of the 5 worst teams in the league. And Tomlin could just scratch out, I think for college that really would have worked. All right, so Brian Kelly, I know he's listening right now. I know he's a big fan. I don't actually, but let's say he's listening..

"I'm scarlet fu And I'm Mike lynch I've just got one word to say The Drake distance Last year the pistons had a great 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 business 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 fanfare 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 you're the talent at all affects you differently What does that rebuilding look like for you Troy said 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 is never built around in 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 bay is that 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 lens to it It's about how can we utilize the platform that we have to engage our fan base or 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 people into the downtown area of Detroit than it was out in the suburbs say auburn hills the palace the silverdome My answer would be no Obviously I didn't wasn't in market at that time But I think listen you've got one of the best downtown entertainment quarters of any city in the country All four teams play within walking distance of each other You've got the Fox theater that's right there as well I think the downtown entertainment district is a desirable destination You've got some great restaurants in that area There's a million different reasons why people can wood and should and do come downtown for games Up next on the show stay tuned for more of our conversation with Detroit Pistons chief business officer Mike zimowski That's where we'll talk about revitalizing Detroit and what little Caesars arena has done for downtown Detroit straight ahead on

"Word to say The Drake pistons Last year the pistons had a three two lead One in 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 skeptical 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 fanfare 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 you're the talent at all affects you differently What does that rebuilding look like for you Troy said 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 and 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

"mike tom" Discussed on It Ain't Weak To Speak with Sam Webb
"Who have all the risk factors that don't get the disorder. What is it about those people? For example, with something like Alzheimer's disease, there's a particular protein in the brain called amyloid. That's one of the predictors that is another predictor, which is a specific gene called APOE four that people carry, which increases the risk. There are some people that have got two copies of the APOE Fourier which just means they're at higher genetic risk to have high levels of this protein amyloid in their brain, but they don't have cognitive decline. So, you know, maybe ten, 20 years ago, these people would have been sort of just written off as inconvenient outliers in the data, but now people are beginning to look at these. What is about their lifestyle? Because it's sort of genetic factor. It's not the physiology. What is it that's protecting them against getting Alzheimer's disease, for example? It's amazing that you've done so much research over the years, publications, talks all around the world and it worked that you're doing it a couple of universities in Melbourne. It's very interesting. I mean, we could talk for days about the science and the research that points to certain aspects of people's lives and what they're doing differently to be and feel the way that they feel. And I think evidence is not only a big part in the work that we try and put out into the world with the work that we do with living. But it really is an area that I'm genuinely interested in because in a world with so much social media and there's so much news. You just sort of don't know what to believe. And I think at the end of the day, it's really important that we get to the truth as best as we can. And I think people like you who spend hours and hours and research time finding the truth. I think that's important stuff. Thank you. It's a big topic that we could have spoke for, I reckon four or 5 hours on here just about the brain itself. And a lot of this stuff might is very new to me. Andrew, it's very new. I think it is to a lot of people. Yeah, it is, man, it is. And I think it would be an opener for a lot of people who are listening right now because it's one thing, you know, having a great meal once a week. But it's about consistency, I think. And I don't think you have to be a very wealthy or a millionaire to sort of to get on the healthy food bandwagon or to start learning more about, you know, you met its reine dot, for example, pescatarian dot, whatever that looks like. I mean, everyone's very different. But, you know, I can tell you right now with my hand on my heart that food, nutrition and exercise has changed my life, not saying that's going to change everyone's life, but I live and breathe it myself, so it's easy for me to say that, you know? What about you Mike? Do you live and breathe it yourself? Are you in a Mediterranean diet? Is that why you said passionate about it though? I try my best, you know, it's like you say these things aren't black and white, but certainly my diet, my lifestyles changed a lot, exercising. I think it's probably the one thing that's really changed things for me. And you made a really good point early on about how often these things that aren't convenient, you know, there's a lot of work showing that they're cheaper, but convenience of some poor food. So some sort of socially disadvantaged working single murder who's got a little Johnny or Jenny asking them for a markers as opposed to cooking up some delicious vegetables. That's a really, really hard position. And that's a different problem. It's not one that I know the answer to, but I hope somebody does. Yeah, and it's a very common one to I think Andrew, I mean, so many people listening right now could relate with that exact comment, your mind. I mean, how much easier and more convenient? Is it just to stop on the way home and grab something that's going to take 5 or ten minutes to down if you're in a rush to a mating or something like that instead of going home cooking up a piece of chicken or a piece of salmon and throwing in a bit of broccoli and some brown Ross and maybe some dark grains. It sounds like a lot of work, but it probably really isn't. You can do it really simply and you feel a hell of a lot better after, don't you? That's why I always sacrifice my tongue. I'm like, oh, Mike Tom to get the extra 5 or ten minutes to put in the good food. And do the exercise because I know it makes me feel better. It makes me perform better at my work in my relationships in my life. But I want to say, look, we've hit out four cards up here. I want to say thank you on behalf of myself and the entire team at living, very grateful for your time. I do think that we should get on another podcast and the foreseeable future and talk more about, you know, the other side of this conversation, which we probably didn't get to today, but I'll make sure to share everything with our listeners, where they can find you. It might do just want to let people know right now where they can find if they want to follow your journey? Yes, so Twitter, I'm at scolia, SCH, oh, why? My website is just Andrew scholey dot com perfect made. And I'll share that with the team and with everyone who's listening and it will be in the show notes as well on all the major podcast platforms. Big gratitude and appreciate your time today. Thanks, Sam. Thank you again for listening in to another episode of innate weight to speak. Please like, share and spread the love to as many people as you can.

"Do on tom brady. And the bucks are looking to become the first team to win back to back super bowl. Since brady's patriots accomplished the feat in the early two thousands he'd be twelve as one seven super bowl brings three. Mvp awards and has close passing records as well mike. Tom brady is the best quarterback ever but is he even the greatest. Nfl player said it. Before and i said again we all know it ain't no secret. Tom brady is the greatest football player. Ever walked this earth that will never be another and never be another man at a win. Eight rains whether it's just a another individual plan not at quarterback on never be another quarterback that win eight super bowls. We talked about that before or infants. Seven super bozo. Where he's at right now seven. You'll never be another guy who will do tom. Brady has been able to accomplish. Be this season ahead of myself. Yeah but you know peyton manning. Predictive future asked my because this this. I could predict this economic ridiculous. We all can sit up there and predict this. This is going to be easy and if it happens this year it won't be a surprise. I tell you that man. I'm just looking at the list last night. It is funny actually. I played in the era. With every last one of these guys with the exception of jim brown brady j rice ale reggie white. That was the top five up. They would all upset. So i feel pretty lucky. Michael cross you know you miss you miss. You miss reggie. You might have been you miss reggie now but you got but you got jared. You got jerry and tom. I put my put. Jared number one. Because when i look at it took jerry and i said jerry played in the era where they didn't throw the football field spread out like it is the one implemented to protect the wide receiver. It wasn't put into tech protect the quarterback in jerry's numbers with you look at jerry. Where he he where he is at number one. We're at everybody else's that number two different guys some guys but i think lafayette journalists second yards. But he'd five thousand yards behind him. He's overheard or catches behind him in catch if he's fifty plus touchdowns of head of the next closest receiver. He's planning era where they only play to. Coverages stopped over three. And cover to make mike my student coach. Mike mike the play cover five which is twenty two man they play quarter coverage they play cover six. They play cover two. They played cover one that play all the coverage that they got now. The only thing they don't do go play undercover z. Everybody plays under front. Don't see i the thing that i won't do it. I won't say my era is better. Because i played in it and try to be dismissive of everybody else era and you starting to become one of those guys. Might you being buried dismissive of all the all the errors. I won't do that. I've just saying this the coverage of sauce. So let let me get this straight. So there was no quarter covered. The comeback can look at the dallas cowboys and see when they play during the super bowl. That what they call. They come eighty-eight when they called me. Cover four go. Look at ours retired now. When have you had to do is run a tight in the near safe. You can run a post versus. That has go post right here in the super bowl. I knew exactly exactly what you do right now. You run with the same plan. Run hold of safety outside here. Does nothing exactly what you do. Exercise knows we're gonna go over the heads with all the football. But i know tom brady is the greatest. Okay you can say that you can say no raise us we can. We can debate. We can debate. We can debate the tom. Integrative but to say they only had two coverages that now you want to go back to the sixties when the always played man and then bob favorite players forced him to go zone coverage okay. But don't do that tonight. It's and earn the two thousand. All the coverage is that they had the bomb covers the cover zero. Go look it up in the super bowl against the green bay packers. Oh down and see what we ran bomb blitz zero coverage By the way. Tom landry not error. Go ahead tom landry. Seventy s. what was called the flex defense in which they offset every other offense their they're set back in the corners were terminally in man-to-man threat. That just what they play. Every all right. I i cannot help but characterize your insistence on jerry rice being the great football player ever as straight brady. Hey or at least brady disrespect or at least trying to keep brady at an arm's length from greatness because how can make a case when you played the position of receiver it receiving tied in that any type of receiver could be better than any type of quarterback because it's a quarterback's game as mike vick will be the first to tell you and you have told me many times on this show. Receiver is a dependent position. Yes you go as the quarterback does he asked to read it and see it and decide. You're opening up to throw it to you and then you have to trust. He will get it within your catch radius. But i think we're having two different arguments we're trying to. We're trying to bay one thing what you're telling me. I'm not saying jerry was ever more valuable than the quarterback. I'm saying jerry was a better receiver then. Tom your quarterback. That's all i'm saying if you look at the numbers how can you say that. He skipped dick curiously. You look at his numbers day compared to the next best number that to in all the guy that had these numbers out jerry played in which all they did was throw them all. Okay but i can give the bulk of that credit to bill. Walsh's off west coast. Yes and to joe. Montana and steve young for throwing it to jerry rice. But jared jared had no impact on bill okay but in in leadership. Jerry wasn't a leader a follower on those teams. Okay gerald jerry's work ethic jared length to work at. No he wasn't he wasn't vocalizing. Michael irvin was d- leader of those cowboy soup jerry. Rice was not the leader of those forty nine in l. T. what do i need to say about okay. But but again if the historical opportunity to take brady lt they would just take brady because you can't beat them. Because of the values the value at the position is like okay. Give me if i give you choice. Give i give you johnny bench. I'll give you sandy. Colfax randy johnson. Who you taking obviously came from my state. The value the quarterback. Mike give always going to be more valuable because he has the ball every play. Yes absolutely you. Just said quarterback has this jerry rice skip. Okay just so innovative. Saying i'll take jerry. Rice is the greatest player in the history of the game. You can't say it because he plays a dependent position is disqualified skew. If you really look at it. The quarterback play mike. How many got got did you did. You can't be jerry right so in.

"Jammed together in all three may make the playoffs And then there's the Cardinals and I think the Cardinals they don't make the playoffs. Think there'll be one of the teams looking for a new coach, Come January. Why do you say that? Well, when you look at the history of the Cardinals They've They've been around for over 100 years. They've never had a coach last longer than six years. Two guys made it six years. Jim Hanifin and Ken wasn't hunt Bruce Arians was there five years. And this is the year when the column very experiment needs to come to fruition, and if it doesn't happen, it's not gonna be anyone's fault. But the coach who's responsible for getting the most Out of Murray and just some of the things that were said throughout the offseason by guys like GM Steve Khan by Murray, who is clearly getting frustrated by not getting to the postseason. I think if it doesn't happen, that's when job number one in Arizona becomes finding the right coach. To build the perfect offense around column er, give me some more hot seat. Well, I think I think in Minnesota, where Mike Zimmer Is setting the stage to be on the hot seat by saying, I think we have a pretty good team. Now we just have to go out and prove it. Rick Spielman, the guy who built the team is probably very appreciative of that, because maybe that means he doesn't get fired if they fail to make it to the playoffs, But they have a weird vibe around them. Because of the offense. Offense feels like it's fallen off a bit now we didn't see any Dalvin cook in the preseason, but if that offence doesn't doesn't produce at a high level, it's going to be very difficult for them to get to the postseason, And if they fail to make the playoffs for two straight years, I think Zimmer could be In significant trouble. Beyond that, it's just going to go. I mean, other than Kingsbury and Zimmer. You know who out there has. I mean, would Mike McCarthy be gone in Dallas? I don't know They'd fire him after two years. Sack Taylor in Cincinnati Easy pick for the hot seat. If he's got guaranteed money in his contract for 2022 Bengals, don't fire people and pay them. They want their coaches to work, and Jerry Jones is the same way. Probably only thing he has in common with Mike Brown. He doesn't like to pay coaches to not work either. And that guaranteed money for either McCarthy or Taylor beyond this year could help save them. But you know, we see it every year. I mean, there's gonna be bad teams. Everybody's optimistic. Now. Glass is half full everywhere, Everybody zero and zero. Everybody's got a chance. The end of the day. Every team that's good. That means it's gonna be a team that's bad, and you know, we we see it. We we saw what seven last year. It's amazing the turnover, but Either when you're done and you don't have many chances, and Jon Gruden should be on the hot seat in Las Vegas, But he's not because Mark Davis ain't gonna fire. You know, Mike Mayock will be gone. I think if they don't make the playoffs That Mark Davis is going to keep Jon Gruden indefinitely into the future. Mike Florio here on the rich Eisen show Pro football talk. Um, starts our day here on NBC Sports on Peacock every single day at Pro football Talk on Twitter. What's going on with T. J Watt? In Pittsburgh. What's happening with Mike Tom on the coach of the team said today. He's optimistic they're going to get something done. Excuse me, Um They have some weird rules. One is I'm in a coughing fit here. One is stories here. Go ahead. Go ahead. No, Go ahead. Get a simple water. We're professionals here. One is That they have to get contracts done by the start of the season or that's it. Okay, fine. Well, what's going to happen with what if they don't get his contract? By the start of the season, they're going to have to break their rule. Because they've allowed him to show up, not practice. Not play and you know, just in this weird holding pattern, the other rule that hurts the Steelers here. The fact that they don't give fully guaranteed money beyond the first year of a contract. That's a real problem with what he wants. Full guarantees beyond this year. Other elite defensive players have gotten full guarantees beyond the first year, but but it feels like they're going to get something worked out right up against the deadline deadline driven business. Look for what? To make a little bit more than 27 year in new money on probably a five year extension. The question is going to be how much of it is fully guaranteed its signing. I mean, I really again we're not there. I'm not there. Okay, so I'm not there. But sitting out it just seems like another situation where teams are like we don't do it this way. And it's like, well, you you you do it that way. Sure, But why don't you make an exception for this guy? Because you can always mentioned two other people. Well, we did it for T. J Watt. You're not in that echelon. What? You know what I mean, like it's so simple for players to get what they want and for franchises to bend the rules if they just had The ability to not break on the front of looking another player in the face and saying You're not that person and you know who's doing that right now. Tampa Tampa is totally reconfiguring the way that they go about their business for Brady, and they're not worried at all that the next part like they're not worried at all that Kyle Trask is going to be coming to ask for something or anybody else on the team is asking for something. You're not Brady. You don't. You didn't come here with six rings and give us 1/7. It's that simple and it Green Bay put themselves between a rock and a hard place with Rogers. It seems Because they only do it a certain way. I I kind of just Oh, it's it's I don't understand it. You're right. Look, you have to acknowledge that certain players merit certain treatment, and the dealers will bend their rules they did with Antonio Brown. They don't renegotiate contracts with more than one year remaining unless it's quarterback, so he had three years left. He wasn't happy with his deal, so they took some money. From the next year and moved it into the current year. And then the next year they took money from the last year moved into that year. And then the last year they gave him a new contract. Now we know it all went to hell after that, but they've got ways. To work around it if they really want to, But, yeah, for a great player, you just do it. It's TJ Want and having these rules that are separate, apart from the rules are set forth in the labor deal. It sets you up to not be as competitive as you could be, because other teams are going to do it. And it's going to make it harder for you to keep the players you really want to keep. If you're stubborn about when you're going to do contracts and what the terms are going to be, and well, we don't want to put money in escrow for next year. Well, everybody else does it except for the Packers. So you better do it too. Yeah, I just don't. I don't get it. I You know, it just it's mystifying to me. So, um, But before I I, I let you go. Are you on the bills? Um, for this year? What's your A F? C, uh, thought on that front. I think there are nine teams in the A F. C. The bills the Patriots, Ravens Steelers, Brown's Colts, Titans Chargers chiefs that are all good enough. Two. By the time we get to January being the playoffs and make some noise in the playoffs, so it's a very difficult top heavy division. Did go bills bucks. As my Super Bowl teams this year, and you know what the hell let's throw the folks in western New York a bone. Let's say the bills are going to beat the bucks because we have seen Tom Brady lose three Super Bowl, so it's not like it would be unprecedented. He can get there..

Hey, we're gonna win this many gang I can't. But none of that matters. And you guys don't wanna hear it Anyway, You've had enough of that. So excuse my language. Here's what I do know. Great. That gets me is that this team is going to take on the idea any of this city all right, and the city's been Been down, and it found a way to get up. Eyes found a way to overcome adversity. All right, And so this team's gonna be built on. We're gonna kick you in the teeth, All right, And when you punch is back, we're gonna smile at you. And when you knock us down We're going to get up and on the way up. We're gonna buy the kneecap off, all right, And we're gonna stand up and then it's gonna take two more shots to knock us down. All right. And on the way up, we're gonna take your other kneecap and we're gonna get up and then it's gonna take three shots to get us down. And when we do, we're gonna take another hunk out of you before. Before long. We're gonna be the last one standing. All right, that's gonna be the mentality. Yeah. You don't think about that in the shower or as you're riding to the facility that was all off the top of his head. How would you react? By the way? Let's say we got into a fight. And you knocked me down, which would be an impressive feat on its own, because you are Much smaller person compared to my gargantuan figure. When I started to get back up. Remember when Tyson fury in the first fight with Deontay Wilder got knocked down. Everyone thought the fight was over. And then it was like undertaker moment. Oh, my God. He's risen from the dead and he got back up. If you had me down and out and I got back up on my way getting back up, I bit you in the kneecap. You would probably run so far away from me, I would say what's wrong with that person? Over in a fight. I'd probably encouraged you're gonna hurt yourself trying to buy the kneecap off. But if I bit your kneecap, you would not know what to do. A little weird. You would be shocked, But then you wouldn't know what to do when I get back up, punch you in the face, punch you in the mouth. You know, broken. You have broken teeth trying to bite a kneecap. You're breaking your own job. Dan Campbell just willingly hurting his own players. He must have Ah, teeth made of steel. All right. That's my only explanation. All right, let me go through all the coaches here. Is Dan Campbell. I think he's the leader in the clubhouse coaches. I want on my side if they're getting into a fight. Did Shah McDermott be a good fighter? I think he could be It's too small for all of that. May 11 1 70. He's smaller than me. Uh, Here's the thing. He's got some muscle tone. Your scrawny He's got muscle. I'm scrawny. He's not. Yeah, He's got muscle. He's he's got muscle. I think I don't think Sean McDermott is in the top five. I think Sean McDermott is in the top 10 fighting coaches in the league. Hello. Check. No. L A check may be able to outsmart you. Politics, Probably not a good fighter. Robert Saleh. Definitely Andy Reid. Hmm. No, aunty Bree reminds you have probably is a fighter. Ever see the movie Billy Madison. The revolting blob? Yeah. Andy Reid would be the revolting blob. That would be my comparison altogether, reads a good fighter. How about Jon Gruden? Now, Jon Gruden, I think was once and I know he was once endorsed by Corona. I don't know if he is endorsed by Corona, the beer. Anymore. Just want to be clear in these times I ran If Jon Gruden has a few beers, I think he could be a good drunk fighter, right? It could just be like a savage gets punched in the face and just keeps on swinging and swinging and swinging. He got like, nine black guys and keep on. Yeah, that's a great question. I think he goes Either way. Brandon Staley No. Vic Fangio. No. Oh, you know what? I didn't think about him. Mike Tomlin. Mike Tomlin. I think Mike Tom would be able to wear you down. Just by talking to you and also could physically beat you up. John Harbaugh. Ah! The fancy. No. Zach Taylor. No. Vrabel. Yes. Frank Reich know Texans don't have a coach Urban Meyer. Absolutely not. Ron Rivera. Don't think you would do well in a fight, even though he's a very good football player. Judge. No McCarthy. No way. Nick Syriani. No. He Carol? No. McVeigh? No, not a good fighter. Kingsbury. No way. Shanahan? Nope. The floor now. Man, Matt Maggie. That's someone I think could be the top five. Here's all saying either Tom under Hammer or the fifth candidate here, Zimmer? No. You just heard Dan Campbell paid to know Bruce Arians know Rule a murder Matt real shirt, but no. And then Arthur Smith knows the bottom line. When I get into this if I had to go one through four, I would say Campbell, one Rabel to the guy said he would cut off his. You know what? Uh, won a Super Bowl, I'd say Salad three and then Brian for us foreign for the fifth spot. It's between Tomlin and Maggie. Mm. I think Matt nag would be a good drunk bar. Fight up. I'm gonna go with my main man, Mike Tomlin. So Dan Campbell to me is the NFL coach would emerge from the steel cage match,.

Yes, This is my response that where was the last time with White House was attacked? There's a civil war mind you let me remind you that the executive branch is a co equal part of the government along with the legislative. Therefore, the White House and the Capitol are equally sacred ground. And the day and the time with that breach was it was may 31st off this past year, Just seven short months ago, when thousands of radical nutjob lefties attack the White House were violently shaking the fence so hard Hurling insults and object of police officers. It's only by some miracle that no one did get. They never got past the fence, and they were dispersed by as I just said, But more importantly, they're not. Their intent was to do it was to kill President Trump that un How do you know that? It's under it. Go on YouTube. I'll send you links later. If you like. Go on YouTube and look at any of the videos.

Pompeo 'listened in' on Trump call with Ukrainian president; Giuliani subpoenaed
"Let's start with this big big story of course which has to do with the whistle blower and room and the whistle blower testifying and the whistle blower is an official with the CIA and then Mike Pompeii of the secretary of state who was supposedly among the officials who listened in on that July twenty fifth phone call between the president and the Ukrainian president that is the information that was released by the state department on Monday there was a disclosure that ties to the state department more closely than originally thought in this house in each man in Korea that's where that all came out so Pompeii is participation the call wasn't reported before that and it was one of the newest developments related to the controversy centering on the repeated urging by the president that the Ukrainian president cooperate with Rudy Giuliani who of course is the president's personal attorney and Attorney General William Barr on investigations into Joe Biden his democratic rival and of course his son hunter who had ties to Ukrainian energy company so Monday the house committee's subpoena Giuliani turned over all the documents related to any communications with the trump administration about his efforts in the Ukraine as well as any other documents and then they have a duty. eight on that of October fifth two teens there's another due date flying around up there at the end of the week more documents related to the phone call have to be produced by Mike Tom tale but of course then the rob is well who signs the subpoena and how much teeth is there in the. enough so it it's it's interesting that the Ukraine is the is the focus and it's it's where we sit at this point because remember there are comments that Pompeii made at the United Nations General Assembly meeting and he didn't mention his participation in the call but said that the complaint was filed by someone who had secondhand knowledge. and just days before that he said he opposed releasing the record of the call. and said that he would defer to the White House on whether to do so or not so he's kind of dance around that you've got three house committees foreign affairs intelligence oversight. that did subpoena him for documents and said he has until October forced to produce them the committees are going to depose the former US ambassador to the Ukraine the US special envoy to the Ukraine the Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian affairs you get it I mean there's a whole bunch of people related to where information the information final would be who are going to be part of the people that are being subpoenaed and compelled to testify where it ends up in and what the whistle blower has to say is is really more than the curiosity now it is at the heart of the matter and if the whistle blower who is expected to testify soon in the house will they protect the identities probably going to protect the identity of the whistle blower it hasn't been made public except for just say it's a man who works for the Central Intelligence Agency the Wall Street journal was talking about that and the house is waiting for the whistle blowers attorneys to receive security clearances and then they'll move forward they say they're going to get the unfiltered testimony of the whistle blower and that they're taking all precautions to protect his identity but you know how that is I mean I these identities get can get leach proved he pretty pretty easy but it's not clear how the whistleblower would testify without risking exposure I mean how do you do that I can think of many instances where where the thought was that you were protected and then you you weren't but there certainly would be secure rooms and there would be rooms available on Capitol Hill where they would give the whistle blower that anonymous. he is getting you know given that the the anonymous presence that they're seeking but still it began with the people that are that roam around those those quarters I think it's pretty tough I think I'd be pretty tough I I really I do and you you have to sneak them out of the building you would have to do that you have to cordon off the area is to get the men you'd have to get people in and out of buildings without being identified but of course when you have a group of people the exposure just kind of ratchets up and this is gonna be one to watch because here's what I'm betting. I'm betting that is going to be next to impossible to protect the whistle blowers identity and the longer this drags out I think the harder that becomes because the speculation continues and listen there's reporters with deep ties who've cover Washington for a long time and who specifically have covered the CIA and the state department and who's to say that there's some people who don't know who that is and it somehow. does not leak
