You know, I guess maybe that's wordsmith here by Anthony Davis. And maybe he didn't tell the pelicans that or he wasn't out there. Talking to other front offices around the league. But there are too many people too many really respected journalists and reporters some who've been in the NBA and around these circles and have connections in the front offices around the league for decades. Now that says it's your representation, it's Paul. It's clutch sports that are out there going to Boston going to New York going into the nets going everywhere and telling those teams in those for an office that he won't resign there. Anthony Davis will not resign their long-term. He only wants to end up in Los Angeles. So I'm sorry. Anthony Davis again, either you are incredibly naive as a twenty five year old who's been a professional basketball player now for six and a half years in this dirty business that is the NBA or you're not telling us the full truth. Those two things don't jibe with each other. One of the things I'm always curious about is his relationship with MS Benson.

We'll Jeff let me start just on the basis we understand the frustration of the fans. I've talked to coach Peyton the team the players. We understand the frustration that they feel right now. And we certainly want to address that. So. Whenever and officiating is part of any kind of discussion post game. It's never a good outcome for us. We know that our clubs that are ficials know that. But we also know our officials humid, we also know that they're officiating game that moves very quickly and have to make snap decisions under difficult circumstances. And they're not going to get it. Right. Every time. As they say, they're human. We have worked very hard to bring technology into try to make sure we could do whatever is possible to address those issues. But. Technology's not going to solve all those issues. The game is not officiated by robots. It's not it's not going to be. But we have to continue to go down that path. Go back specifically on Sunday night. I think coach Peyton spoke to.

Adel says they'll take another look at their video replay rules, but as far as giving coach's ability to challenge non-call have knock voted for that in the past. It doesn't mean that we won't.

We got a couple of more questions in relation to the officiating situation. So let's take a listen to those Rogers Sal paolantonio from the SPN good afternoon. Roger going back to the situation in New Orleans in the NFC championship game. I think football fans all over the country, and especially in New Orleans just want to hear in your own words, what you may have said to coach Peyton or MRs Benson about the situation. And what you thought of the play. I you know, that I never disclose my private conversations with anybody. I was very open just as I was here. It's a play and should be called. We're going to make sure that we do everything possible to address the issues going forward and and see if they're improvement. So we can make through instant replay or anything else I understand the emotions it's important as Commissioner and all of our staff, which several of us have done is to hear that emotion. Whether it's frustration disappointment anger. Those are things quite frankly I hear frequently during the season from clubs. But I understand the stage, and I understand the importance of it to New Orleans to this franchise and to the NFL. And so I made them aware of the fact that I was committed to doing everything possible to think outside the box and try to come up with solutions. Lodger GDP from the NFL network morning.

We have close to two hundred million fans, I talked to before we know that there are segments are going to have different reactions to different things going on our league. But ultimately, I think people respect and admire the things we do want to be part of it. Yes. Hi, I'm Kevin Clancy. How do you balance being a fan of the game and Commissioner at the same time? Well, that's a really good question cabinet. Listen, I the question they always I like to tell people that could get picked I became a fan when I was five years old probably a little bit younger than you. And I love the gay always did. And that hasn't changed at all. My passion for the game and my interest in the game. Is what drives me and. Being able to help and support that as Commissioner and to have an influence ultimately on the growth at the game success of the game. The health of the game is something that I don't think separates me from my role as a as a fan. I think the two go really well together. And I'm not sure you could do this job as Commissioner without being a very. Compassionate fan. Take a question. Roger Sal paolantonio from ESPN good afternoon. Hey, Roger going back to the situation in New Orleans in the NFC championship game.

And so I made them aware of the fact that I was committed to doing everything possible to think outside the box and try to come up with solutions. Roger Judy Battista from the NFL network. I Judy morning. Several former game officials say that perhaps one way to avoid missing calls. The way the game is being played is to add official to the crews. I'd like to know what's your feeling is on that. And also if that does not happen, and there are no rules changes involving instant replay. Are you comfortable going into the twenty one thousand nine season with things status quo? Given what we just saw in the NFC championship game. Two things one is I am if we go through the process of fully evaluating or are there changes we can make it. If we determined that it is not in the best interest of the game through the competition conveying through our membership. That's how we operate and as long as we do that with a sincere effort to improve the game. That's where we'll go. On the first part of it. I don't think adding an official is a an answer to all the issues and particularly this issue. We have evaluated eighth official for many years. It's on the competition committee gender and has been for several months. And so we will explore that. But I think that inevitably it's not just going to be simple that will mistakes again, adding another innate official is one more human. One more human that will make mistakes like all the rest of us. Roger Mike beddis from the Weather Channel current forecasts for the game, sixty two and cloudy.

Because as a mean pointed out when you have seven years of a guy that good and you wasted. That's on you. It's like when Cleveland loss LeBron. Yeah. Too bad. You your best player next was MO Williams for like three years. Good job. Right. You deserve him to go away. So I don't feel bad for these teams when these guys leave to bigger markets or better teams or better situations or whatever, right. There's no way you can you can fault any guy for wanting to leave after seven years of basically butting your head against the wall. Yeah.

Goodell took the NFL from a sports and entertainment with all this worrying about who's playing at halftime letting the players run around to every play and celebrate. And I mean, it's it's almost like championship wrestling watching a game. Now, it's it's almost bizarre. I think he's taking the sport to a different level. And I think it's more entertainment than almost export. Now. I think it's both. I mean, I in his room, you know, for that. I think to a certain extent, I mean, it it's what generates a lot of momentum and motivation and a lot of cheering and everything else. I think there's a place for it. It's a delicate balance though, I agree with you, Hank. But I'm at a point now like even if that guy would have missed a fifty eight yard field goal. And we would have got the ball on the forty eight line. I guarantee you I'll bury I snap would have been a holding penalty. Yeah. I guarantee you that it would have been I in twenty from the thirty eight instead of the forty eight right? And that was in. And if that's the key.

Hear Jim until, the call the call and I think that's, that's, to have that chance to have that type of connection I know if I have that connection with Jim Henderson that there's fans all over the. Gulf, south it just you know that's like he's a part of this organization in a really unique way because he's he's, what's bringing that game into people and and to have the. Opportunity to do that for someone that twenty, years down the road someone could say when I think of saints football I think about You know about Zack is just such. A it's, such an, amazing opportunity and one that you know obviously I think very highly of so so now that you've come to what is often referred to by players is the dark side or what have you correct we got a, little treat for, here and we got some, help, from the saints So Zac. Burgundy The saints, digital imaging the high. Tech stuff so they took. Ron burgundy it looks just like even got the mustache. And everything so you're, now Zac so I'll tell you and I know exactly where this is coming from every Saturday since since coach Payton's been here when they announced the captain of, the week they go through a series of photographs and they superimpose our faces and it's all it's all this goofy stuff and and then we vote on what is the. Funniest. Photograph okay and so they're experts. At this they've been doing it for twelve years and every week you get five. Or six I've been Andre the giant standing next to a little tiny wrestler with Jovic face on it for like ten, years now like it just kept going back. To that so this good just to have a new, one time man. Has groovy that's back. In today Right right, that's back in today just getting ever looked. Look at qual- for my hair that's amazing Zacky just what was this process like for you Listen. It's? Been. A ton of fun. I mean this is what you realize immediately and like. Bobby alluded. To there's so much more that goes into this You're carrying broadcast Swing it no and you know the first the first time, I sat down, it, was like oh just go and, try a game and I'm like three. Minutes in going this. Is a disaster and, so you, realize you know there's there's thirty hours of work to get ready to call one of these things and You know. That that process was I opening I think at times it was certainly humbling at times and it just got to a point where, it was like man I'm getting better. And getting better I'm getting. Better and you start thinking, maybe you know maybe I can, do this and, and so it, was, exciting. For me and, yet at the same time I'm looking at the other people that are up and they're all amazing, professionals and guys, I have I had a tunnel respect for now it's like ten times more you listen to. Draw. Draw Myers call game or Sean Kelly and it's like oh, my gosh unbelievable, right, and you know one thing that, I really respect it when I read. About when you did, interviews that you never, you always, learning you never know it all and that that you wanted to be critiqued and even You know went, out the Northwestern University and said okay. Well what do you think. To get that advice I, think that is very humbling but, that's the right, approach so how, can, I. Get better and, wanting to be coach able you gotta be willing to be coach able in anything you do now, sometimes people might, say I'm not coaching will go to the break on time we know that hey Do right, now Stop talking. For, a. Second right exactly The, saints, token sonar mosquito Benson the, scale how how excited are you four Zach and for the. Saints orgnization, so excited to do this I. Mean it's going to. Be so wonderful we just. Can't wait can't wait for. The? Season Yeah thank, you I mean this is another great example like you know obviously. I'm a big crybaby everyone got to see that a few months ago and I I just I love this place I love the organization and it's such a special a special. Place in you guys leave here in ten years. Later they're still on these group chats that we, all have and and guys still talk about how. This was the best place that they ever were and guys at bounce all over and it starts in and it's. A true story I'm not just saying it because MRs Benson's here but it has always started here at the top and you know the Benson's. Have been incredible here certainly to me and to to, everyone, that's come through this building? And again to have an opportunity to feel like I'm I'm representing, this organization, still, and, that's really, special to, me, and important and and something, I, certainly hope I live up to MRs Benson's expectations Gail.
