"Where you had the universal DH and sometimes people will speculate that the AL has done as well as it has because there is some DH advantage. In 2021, you go back to having the DH and you go back to a more normal season and the AL went one 67 and one 33, that's a 5 57 winning percentage. That's a pretty commanding lead that is tied with 2015 for the highest since 2012 when the AL had a 5 63 winning percentage. And as we all know, of course, the NL team eked out the victory in the World Series, but on the whole AL one and interleague and that's not a perfect measure of league quality necessarily because it's still a small ish sample. You can look at run differential in that sort of thing if you really want to get in the weeds. But for a long time, I think the AL was on top. Maybe partly slightly because of the DH, but Russell Carlton has looked into that and run some studies and it seems like even in games where did the H was not in effect, the AL still one more than you would expect it to, and so it doesn't seem like it's entirely the DH and their reasons to think that that DH advantage that purported advantage is actually overblown. And so there are other theories about well, maybe it's like the Yankees and the Red Sox, who are just kind of raising all boats, payroll wise or other teams have to be smart or spend a lot to keep pace with those teams that are the big market teams that are always on Sunday Night baseball, basically. So they're all sorts of theories, but the ale was dominant for a long time, then the NL suddenly snapped that streak. Now it seems like the ale is back on top again. So maybe it's just that there's no obvious narrative now. No one had an extended streak extended further or snapped, and so there wasn't as much reason to point it out. But I just realized this is something I used to pay close attention to and I had zero awareness of it this year. So I wanted to share that knowledge with you and everyone else. The DH explanation stopped being compelling to me as the primary driver. And I think it's probably just like a mix of a couple different things that and there's probably some amount of just random variation thrown in there too, but it stopped making sense to me as a compelling explanation because yes, you do. I mean, we have talked a lot on this podcast about the difference between pitchers setting and actual hitters hitting and how meaningful that is. But I also think that the way that the DH position is staffed by a lot of AL teams is changing rates so the number of teams that have sort of a dedicated thumper the Nelson cruises of the world. They're actually aren't as many of those guys seemingly as they used to be like that position is used just as often to like, you know, get a guy in the lineup who needs a day off in the field. There's a lot of catchers, you know, and first baseman who maybe you're dinged up, so you kind of have guys rotate through as a way to stay fresh but not lose the bat. And so that stopped being quite as compelling a difference to me even though obviously the gap between real hitters and pitchers has gotten more casmus casmus. Is that a word? No, probably a casmus cat. Has a cat, cat chasm? What Darth Maul fell down, you know? But anyhow, so like that explanation has been a little less compelling to me in recent years, although I say that without having done the work that Russell has done. So there's that part, but I don't know. I think some of it is just kind of the way the cookie crumbles. The payroll thing is interesting to me, but then you have the Dodgers, you know? It's not like there aren't teams that spend in the NL, so I don't know. It's a curious bit of business, but if you would like and end up analysis of it, I can let someone at fangraphs know because gosh is it going to be hard to come up with stuff for it? Yes, please, yeah, it'll be interesting once there is a universal DH if that advantage for the AL persists. And that explanation no longer applies because even in 2020, yes, there was a universal DH, but it arrived late. And teams didn't necessarily have a chance to plan for it. And so rap means recently did a whole series on that at baseball perspective. And so the NLD hs in that year may not have been what they were or what they will be in a season where everyone knows going into it that that will be the rule. So we'll see in the long term whether an advantage for either league persists and maybe we'll get a little more clarity on it then. But I don't think that's been the primary factor. So I think there's more at work there. It did seem like those that the NL was getting a disproportionate number of the young exciting stars in the game in the past few years. And again, haven't necessarily run the numbers on that. But you had your sotos and your acunas and your tatis and often they were national league players. And so it seemed like maybe the balance of power was sort of swinging. But in 2020, not so much. And of course, the interleague matchups switch around every year and which divisions in which teams play each other and the quality of those teams can fluctuate. So a single season is not necessarily all that telling. It's just hit the AL had that streak going for so long that clearly it meant something at that point it was probably not however many consecutive coin flips coming up one way. But cosmic is a word. Cosmic. Yeah. Every dot com says it's rare, which I would agree with. That's not aware of cosmic, but describe. Describing a chasm..

"It's hard to argue with that. I mean. These are the big guy. And with the Yankees not in the playoffs, we can use all that we can get, but we're not in this round of the playoffs. But yeah, that was really bad. And even if you want to preserve your pinch hitters, yes. Use a pitcher who can bat maybe. Right, or if you want to preserve your pinch hitters and you're gonna leave the picture in there, we'll then just let him throw the following ending. Right. You know, it just seemed very strange to go immediately to try and when, you know, like, who did they still have? Who had they used by that point? Pinch hitting. They just had two lefties and barns. Walks and baby in barns. Okay. But I don't know, then just let him pitch the next. Well, I assumed the move was that he's gonna pitch the next inning. So I didn't think anything of him not being pinched for it. Right. Perfect sense. It made sense. But then it started making sense. Grudge literally threw 14 pitches. Right, this is the thing it wasn't like he had been taxed over much. Yeah, it wasn't a particularly close game at that point. It was 6 two. Right. And yeah, I don't know why I need to come in there. If China did need to come in there and there were no decisions after like between this pinch hitting and trying to come in. He was the last better the ending. Right. It's not like then they scored more runs and he thought, oh, I'll just get caught on some rest. Right. The situation was exactly the same. Nothing changed. And somehow between those two, he decided it's no good. Greenery is a pretty good batter. And maybe Roberts was saving him for the save, you know, he does like using him in relief, but why not just let someone else pinch it there? It was very strange. Very, very strange. Yeah, I struggle with how to properly diagnose the phenomena of Roberts managing in the postseason because well, I think my base state assumption is that these decisions and I think you based on the managerial report cards you've given out might agree that these are often marginal choices, like the difference between one decision and the next is or one choice in the next is not particularly meaningful. And so I don't want to make moves that don't end up mattering that much into molehills because or mountains rather, they are molehills often. Because, you know, I just don't think that the difference is all that meaningful. So there's that base state assumption that I make. And then the next base assumption that I make is that the Dodgers as an organization are sort of good tacticians generally, right? I think that they're clear eyed in their analysis of particular matchups and game states. So I don't go in assuming that they are fundamentally misunderstanding a particular moment and making decisions based on bad underlying assumptions. And when I watch Roberts or manage, he hasn't pitched in the regular season. That would be very strange. That would be the ultimate odd manager move. When I watched your when I watch him manage in the regular season, he doesn't strike me as making particularly zany choices. And so with all of that said, I do, though watch him in the playoffs. And he's good for at least one weird one, a series. Now, maybe I am just, you know, engaging in some survivor bias here because his teams tend to last longer in the playoffs than being big moments. And so I noticed those decisions more than I would do other managers who also make the zany choices, but you know, then their teams lose, and they go home. So I'm willing to admit that I am perhaps overestimating the degree to which this either happens relative to other managers or matters, but it does seem like he is good for a couple of weird ones, right? Like he just does some weird stuff, and it seems to manifest at the most critical moment. In his team's season. I think that some of that is made to look bigger than it is because some past iterations of the Dodgers really did have no bullpen. Right, right. They've had some teams where you look at the front office and you're like, well, look, you guys are really smart and look how good the doctors are and you just wrote Joe Kelly's 6 times as your whole bullpen. I don't think that's what you're supposed to do it. They seem to have I guess actually the Kelly signing after the 2018 World Series kind of embarked attorney point where they spent more resources fixing the bullpen. But they've had some dodgy bullpens before that really did make it seem like Clayton Kershaw and relief in the World Series. Maybe the best option. Right. And Robert's decisions on those. I blame him less because he was picking between a lot of bad options. Right. I think that if there is something you can fault, so that it doesn't seem like he's changed his decision making as the team has changed its composition. Right. And yeah, like you said, it's not a huge difference. I think I gave Gabe kapler like a C minus or a D plus for his lineup usage in the NLD S and it's because he got like two at bats wrong where he could have had better hitters and I thought it was pretty predictable. What do you do? So I don't know, you know, two at bats where you don't have the same advantage instead of do or like your hitters slightly worse. That's not a big deal. It's just like, it's the only thing that's totally in your control. Right. Hitters can be hotkey Hernandez or colt gear, and that's not clear which one you're going to be. But managers that's entirely up to you. Right. And Roberts seems to have had the worst of those that I've noticed recently. It could just be because yeah, he gets a lot of chances to goof it up. Yeah. But it is noticeable. And I don't think we're second guessing or armchair quarterbacking or whatever you want to call it. It was weird right in the moment to have a reliever bat for himself and then immediately pull him from the game. That's weird. Yeah. Well, and I guess the other thing that kind of confounds me about it is that we notice this because we watch these games. And so I imagine that the Dodgers have noticed this. And so this is the other place where I struggle because you would imagine and perhaps they have and perhaps they've given this feedback, but all the other things that Roberts does so well sort of offset it in a way that it isn't a deal breaker for them. But it seems strange that it is a problem that has been allowed to persist, even though the exact manifestation of the weird decisions sometimes varies, right? Like sometimes it's often how he's using his pictures, I guess that that is fair, but it's just weird that this has been allowed to sort of stick around as a thing that we're kind of on the watch for and expect him to do at least once or twice a playoff series because you would think that the front office would be like, so hey Dave, you know? Yeah, I do wonder if they just agree with the idea of using starters and relief..

"You're combining fat with protein and making it one thing that has a harmonious texture. And you can use phosphates and other things to aid in that process, but on the small home scale, you don't really need that kind of stuff. If you do it well, right? Just like adding mayonnaise if adding oil to eggs, if you do it too hot too fast, it will break. And you'll just have liquid nastiness. And if you do it right, you make aioli instantly. It's like it's incredible. It's like the coolest magic trick in the world of food, right? And like, look at all of our sauces that are built on that little sausage making same thing. So once they started to get decent and edible, it just became fun to play with the flavor profiles. And I started to do pop ups in LA where I would just make some sausages, smoke them in my backyard, which is not legal to do. You can't then go sell that food. I will say. Right. We don't do that at dog house. No. But so yeah, so I would do these pop ups 'cause again I had had these Food Network shows. They did, you know, we did a season, and then they'd get canceled, or you didn't know if you're gonna do another one. I'm like, oh, what am I supposed to do now with my life? Because here I was like, I was an actor for a while. And I left it and I and I opened a restaurant and then I ended up on a reality show, which led me to hosting a show. No, I'm back in California. And I'm like, shit, they could just cancel you and you could be done, and they're like, what do I do? Do I go back to waiting tables or how do I do something? So yeah, I just kind of started doing it as a hobby and then as like a little thing and then eventually somebody saw one of my sausages and we endeavored to get into Costco. And I did road shows all over the country in different costcos with the brand called virtues worst. And that was wild, living that Costco life. I knew you guys just did Costco and he did. Nick is Nick is looking at he's like a little kid to listen to a story and story time because he loves Costco. This is like right up your alley while. I got to refill the supply and I was doing the samples. I was just doing samples for 8 hours a day. It was the hardest physical job I ever did was moving my product out to that area, firing up those things, working with the people. Not only just cutting sausages, but talking constantly for 8 hours selling your wares. And it must be good practice for the field you're in though, too. It's just talking to people all day at Costco, because there are people like wise. They're annoying as hell. I'm sure they're asking a bunch of questions. Yeah. How did you make the sausage? Where did you make it? Did you make this one? Is it spicy? Spicy. I can't handle spicy. Am I a good man? I left my kids in a hot car. Am I a good man? Can I bring some samples back from my kids? They're in the car. I left them in the car. Again, the AC is on car. They're fine. So during that experience, the guy who was helping me produce my sausage who coincidentally is the dude that has the contract for the Dodger dogs now. Tony came out. Yeah. No, it all connects, man. I'm telling you. I'm like, at the center of the hot dog sausage scene here. So he introduced me to the dog house guys who had just had a couple of restaurants open at that time. And yeah, they started to sell a couple of my flavors and as our relationship kind of went on, eventually we decided to make all the sausages for dog house proprietary and I kind of put gertler's worst aside and just join team doghouse. And I've been with them for like 7 8 years. Well, you know, done other things too, but yeah, it's been amazing, yeah. Well, you guys do great. You do great work over there. Speaking of Dodger dog is a great dog wags and I'm mad at you. You know, I went to the ALD S and I got myself a Fenway Frank. And you could get yourself to the LDS and have yourself a Dodger dog, you're not gonna do it. It's getting mentioned the AL DS. You said NLD S. No, I said no Boston's in the AL. So you said NLD. I said your team, they're in the AL. Adam, have you ever had changing subjects? Have you ever had a Fenway break? Or we had cymbal because I learned that or KM or Cayenne, I don't know how to say it correctly. I learned that they were a Massachusetts company, and I didn't know that, but they make a really good dog. I had found out, which I didn't know. Unfortunately, I didn't get to try a dog in that the one time where I just was recently at Fenway where I just randomly saw Green Day and weezer there. And that was the only time I was at Fenway and I didn't get to one of those dogs. Unfortunate. Damn, all right. But I did late night, hit up that Regina man. Yeah, baby. That's what that's the most important thing to me. And you know, there is Regina pizza now in Fenway, but the north end location is is important, but they're still. They're still good. I mean, this is the thing of when we talk about what dinosaur barbecue or whatever, it's great to hear that the owner of the business is kind of back in control because when you expand like that, it's just it's tough, and I'm sure that's something we know to keep the quality up. Mitch, you have no idea, because it's like, when you have when they had like a couple of doghouses, right? You can just do whatever you want on a day to day basis. You make a change. Try something new. You're in the kitchen. Now we have like 50 restaurants, and now we have all these new kind of virtual brands to the absolute brands where we have some stores that have like 5 or 6 other brands within that..

How dispo nation and wives well first of all, I just want to quickly say, in the last episode I talked about going to the Red Sox game. I got a Fenway Frank and a sausage. We've been over on two episodes now, but I accidentally said, I was at the NLD S and people gave me a lot of shit. I know the Red Sox are in the American League. I said they were moving on to the ALCS after that. And I just want to and also, people are exhausting. What I want to say is that when you talk all the time, you just get a lot of things.

It's hard to talk in front of a microphone. Sometimes you misspeak. For one through 45 layoffs it's a tough job. I guess 46, two, but yeah, lay off all of them. It's fucking hard.

Cj brown former fire legends New york rebels assistant You know was was coming to coach the team. I was like this now now. It's time to come back here. Let's give people a sense of nisa. Just try to anyway. Because i don't think a lot of people know that not about it right. I mean it's pretty low key. It's the wild wild. West of of american soccer anna. That's what it feels like. I'm trying to research. I've heard about it on twitter heard about internet. I'd still so. Let me tell you what i know about nisa. You're going to build off of that. What i know obviously is not gonna be much So i know that it was started in two thousand seventeen by two people. Peter being one of them and The other guy jack. Commons unexpectedly passed away. Like out of the blue. Peter wilt Headed to four madison. I think both of those guys sort of left before they'd played a game So like it felt like the league like so the league is here. We have a league but like is it like actually happening and keep in mind needs to keep in mind that like soccer in the lower levels is so fluid. There's so much going on here so They there are a lot of comings and goings with teams over the last couple of years old. By the way there was a worldwide pandemic that hit Sort of right in the middle of it so. I don't know exactly the ins and outs of those sort of two to three years. What i do know is now. They have ten teams. it's up and running. it's going i know. They have more teams that they're expecting to be adding. I also know that there is like this sort of affiliated amateur slash semi pro league Nisa nation that is basically. I think designed to incubate teams. That may join the league you know. In in the coming seasons it sounds like just really interesting. Self contained soccer ecosystem. That as you said. Has this wild wild west it to it. So what am i would away. Whatever forgotton what have i gotten long sort of. What can you expand upon their. I mean to to to be totally honest. Like that's that's the extent of what i know. I know that one of lisa's biggest like one of the biggest motives in having this starting this league was that they were going to be one of the first. They were going to be v. First american pro soccer league to introduce promote promotion-relegation and so the niece nation that you're talking about the affiliations that they had with these other amateur teams so we're talking like nps l. and right like fourth and fifth fifth year. What would be here. Like soccer teams. Were there funneling them into this needs to nation and they're seeing which clubs you know would maybe be worthy becoming an isa team but eventually like the next like two or three years they wanna have a a top division in a second tier where teams would promote in and relegate hub and so it's a really really cool concepts and it's and i think it's it is the reason that Us to start the conversation of promotion. Relegation louis and yeah it's kinda. It's kind of shaken the american soccer landscape up a little bit because now. Mls just came out with that molest to right or so. You're going to have some teams from us. Sal competing in that. And then you're going to have some usfl one Championship teams may be coming over to niece. Next thing next. I think next year you're gonna see team moving all over the fucking place like oakland route. Started in isa last year odell championships. Now i don't i don't know what the implications of this mls to league is gonna have on the entire landscape of all these different leagues. It's gonna be really interesting. You know. But what i what i do know is that because it's an independent league you don't have this. Mls govern bullshit. You don't have this like you. Don't have these rules that you have to abide by in terms of how you promote the clock. How you advertise. How you market You know all the the amount of money can spat like there's no like there's no cap and there's no there's no minimums so it's like it's it's nuts right like it. It's it's all over the place but it is really cool to see. I mean detroit city You know has been around for a long time. They're planning to this year. They kinda have built a atmosphere following that i think is kind of comparable to like what saint louis f c was in the us l. championship a couple years ago Where they're getting five.

I was kind of like utility guy twenty eighteen. I was getting more starts in the midfield playing really well with dax in boston air but i knew the injuries might might have screwed me a little. Bit and man nelson rodriguez the gm at the time she he would do this thing every year. He would wait till the deadline. Like of when you could be able when you would have to make decisions on homegrown players like even in twenty seventeen season when i played it a ton of games. She still waiting. Like i knew i was lock for the next season. Like he's still rated to deadlocked so every deadline. It's just like me all the homegrown sitting around and we're just like all the call and it's like fucking day dude you're like holy shit like am. I gonna get crushed today. I had a feeling. Maybe they weren't gonna bring me back when they didn't it was just kind of it was just a sad feeling man because i felt like i could've continued to tribute on some level whether it was just being locker room or whether it was being a guy that i just like i was still like i so i was. Yeah of course dude. I felt hurt. Although all the miles that me and my pops and mom drove the toyota park from caroline We dedicated so much to it. Sold felt like yet it sucked and then at that point. It was like all.

"The best case scenario. Is that everyone's there. But of course you got guys families. You got guys arab older. They just played ninety minutes. They can't fucking move so you don't really want to be adult for hours hours after the game are managers. We never did locker room beers but our manages the shots in the equipment room so they would kind of pull they would kind of pull you in and we would like to take a shower of the managers and then from there. It was just like bob like where we meet you. I and i think at that time like Bet bounced bounced had just opened in so it was like bouncing joy district we were we were constantly you know ripping that up and that was. That was a lot of fun dude especially after win for certain out after a loss. But it's it's fun extra phone after. Sometimes it's good to go out after loss and shake it off a little bit especially if it's tough on like overtime goal and you're just like what the fuck it's good to shake it off and kind of bonnet the teammates but after a win. Dude you gotta go you gotta enough so so if you ever get like in just sort of their that nirvana everything like moons stars align and you actually did get almost everybody to come out with you. We had a couple. We had a couple of nights where we did. We did like a teen dinner. And then that kind of spiraled into something else But it's always dude. It's every team like you're never going to be on a team wherever you guys out with each other. You know what i mean. It's just not guys everyone's just so different but we had such a good crew of like twenty three to twenty six year olds and then a couple like awesome american vets. Like gordo in some of these other guys that like when it was time. Dax ticked choosed moments User he made it worth his while a so. I read that you are the team. Dj at least at some point in this is number one. Is that true a number two. Like how do you get that job. He just the first in the fastest to grab the hawks scored or like is it. Everybody sort of realizes that you've basically got you spend the most time at the clubs and you know john who it's it's a big responsibility 'cause if you play the wrong music some guys just get pissed off they don't wanna hear it like Like bossy like feinstein. He hated me was he wanted like eighties. Rock all the top he wanted like ben halen guns and roses like acdc which is like. It's a super german. Thanks a german stereotype. German to love like eighties rock so he you know whenever we played like like hip hop rb he was really into that just i always felt like it was a it was a big responsibility. It was kind of a in on. My mind is kind of a leadership role in some ways. Like you coming in for training your fucking tired or sore. How do we get the boys up. How do we get up for this training session. And then you've got guys from all over the world you've got european guys you got you know Like you've got guys from south america and then you got american guys. Everyone likes different stuff. So i think it takes a certain skill set to be able to construct the playlist that everyone won't hate i. I totally understand that. I could never even begin to fathom how to do it. But i can understand. It would be a very tough has to do neil. Johnson gave me a lot of help though too he helped And then you know like there's just some there's just some songs like the south american guys will do the i don't know and so like lucho solon yak or some of these other guys would hop on you know we've we mix it up but for the most time. Yeah i i would be up. Okay did that like sort of you think that that about propelled you into what you do now. Sort of you mentioned some some of the stuff you're doing off. The soccer field did that Training sort get you some some practice in in sort of is that you're doing these days. Yeah i think so You know. I'm a big. I'm a big music lover. I grew up on a lot of like classic rock blues Like motown and like just growing up. i kind of like get my toes in a little bit of everything. So i've i've got. I've got mad love for Almost every genre and even in the pet. Like i said i hated country but in the past two years. I've found like certain artists that i really really like. I don't like pop country like stadium. Rock like stadium country But i love blue grass in the more like soulful stuff like the chris stapleton and toddlers and stuff like that but yeah no i look i always kinda wanted to do something i was enjoyed music and dance and i i Kind of recently had the opportunity to come in and do some fun accusations. Some of my favorite bars chicago And be able to kind of like select my own deejays and promote my own nights and things like that Which is it which which can be a tough balance. Sometimes you know what. I mean But it's been it's been really really fun and Yeah just just feels good doing it. Nice nice now circle back to your time with the fire you. I saw that you saying. Take me out to the ball. Game with dax ambassador. I think at some point now did either one of them know any of the words to that so so originally. Boston got called into to first pitch.

Like bastille when other opposing fans would taught him like he didn't like like he did not she did not mess with that because then a lot of ways. It's like you know he came here helped american soccer grow and mls soccer in chicago. Soccer grown a big way.

You know what i mean. So it's like he. He handled himself really been there done that like to the to the max problem has been loves of end. So do your time with the fire.

Maybe maybe we had a really the thing is we had a really fun group of younger and older guys during my like during the twenty six twenty seven th season of hopefully they'll come out of that soon for fingers crossed but during that season you know. Say you're on game eight of that game winning streak you guys. You know you're going war normally be like would you start drinking in the locker room and then like get together. Somebody's house and they get together bar and then make your way to. The club is at like the progression or was there something else go.

But the fact that it's just kind of a crime of passion as opposed to to go on the field and yell at a fellow countrymen. I can kind of get into it.

I was fourteen so it was the second year that the That us soccer kind of introduced the academy system where there was designated clubs that were academy teams and then there was like every mls team had their own academy so when that When when the fire house that they were gonna start a An academy team it was like a u sixteen u eighteen group and yau's lucky enough to play a couple of years up on that team when i was fourteen to couple my buddies Some of which with me now here at the house which is which is But yeah the. The fire cat was was an amazing experience. That's kind of bob you know propelled propelled me allowed me to. I guess realized that. I could do it. You know it was like you know.

"Wait until they play okay play palace again of midtable competition. I think i'm going to wait until The play one of the top four to really give give them a stamp of approval. But right now i like them. They're fun team to watch and elder in fourth or both city. So you know what what else. What else can you can't argue that. Also yes. i think they're for real one. The have a very good coach. Well respected coach. And then i think they've got their best players in keep the ships that if they don't get hurt they could be very this year like four four their standard very good. I think they're back. Three is is really good. And i think they played the last two seasons together. Plus your mop pay trust and boussouma stay sumo year. Assume wanna compare it. Like a mid table team that over exceeds like a calvin phillips or in content at leicester like it does have that type of season potentially for him and i think if those things go right they could they could be right by that kind of fourth spot but i would say it probably in the next five to eight range so you got him top. Hafer show though. Sounds like you had the start. Their schedule they have three games coming up the wing honestly with arsenal that includes our snow. That's home to for them. So i think if they're going to hawks star which they already are on their way that would do wonders for them. So you got to you got i think Very high leery. What are your thoughts. Here i don't know. I extract me a little bit like everton villa last year. You know we all super excited about like. Oh man i'm just one to look exchangeable just complicates the credit to them because they will They've they should have been at the same time. I don't necessarily. that's the next here. I think it's sad to say. I think you're right. I mean rape next to me fight mersal. Somebody asked me on twitter today. They're like who you think is going to finish. Higher breitner are slow. And i said gunned ahead. I'd probably say arsenal with zero emission like zero conviction. I don't know why that is. Because i still think are will find a way to climb above spurs. It's i have zero faith in tottenham. And maybe i'm letting that bleed into my thoughts on bright. Maybe they're both gonna vegetable in which is entirely possible but yeah brighton. So here's the thing table. Bright so the big question coming out of last season was if they can score goals because there s g we're going to get into invent stats here. I'm not a huge fan of all these. But there s g was ridiculous for finishing sixteenth like their extra was had them in the top five or six for the season and they finished sixteenth so it just goes to show how terrible their finishing was like absolutely terrible was last than so if they could just boost that a little bit like you know they could. They could make some waves. And so you know i. I don't know what that means for this season. I know that they've only scored seven goals seven goals in five games. So i mean that's not exactly a great goal scoring record but takata that so they've Seven they've conceded four in five games and somehow we've gotten four wins out of that is can argue that i guess. Yeah we'll see. I think that's it it'll be interesting to see is you're right. They got three more games. I'm gonna throw in there as winnable especially at home but then after that things get They get tough quick so he played city liverpool in the next two right after that. So that could be a sort of really you. Think seven goals in five games is not that great. I would love to hear what you would call two goals in five games. But what's an adjective. you would put on that spiracy. Three girls oh okay. Excuse me and one from open play by the way one. We've scored one goal of blood. We are so bad. It's just thank you for bringing that up. By the way i was i was i was referring to us. Not you okay. The north london is yeah seriously has just one of justice. Shit show We'll get more to a little bit other talking points for the week united scraping out ugly win over west ham. Thanks to number one lynn. God coming off. The bench put upper ninety as he always anytime. He plays the at the state london stadium. Whatever that guys get incredible. And then david moyes subbing on mark noble just to take a last second penalty which david hale than saved so that would have equalised for west him in stoppage time. Anybody any thoughts on the decision to throw noble in there go for a resident. United ball gambler. I finished my maynard mack. my question is same. How long does it take you to get warm to pencil these days about forty minutes. So that's basically mark noble. If i know exactly what what he must've been feeling like just go in there. And just i mean that that that's tough but at the same time he's he's got a great penalty record You'd also say he's fairy experienced which comes along with that. You know the need for forty minute warm ups yet. That was tough. I think england especially all fans in england like all this is because we're coming straight out of the euro's were i think they basically what's his name. Southgate pulled that in the final Quite so well But i mean. I know there are other situations not that long ago that you know people were thrown in there and made their penalties. So it's an interesting call. I mean like just to take a penalty is not that much. I mean you know. It should be muscle memory at this point. And he's got a really good record for penalty. So i think it's an interesting talking points and great integrates by a too so give him some. Show there Lastly arsenal back wins against mighty knowledge. Burnley we poppin champlain. Boys.
Several More Coup Protesters Killed in Myanmar
"In Myanmar. The military junta has declared martial law in parts of Yangon, the country's largest city. Now the move follows one of the most lethal crackdowns by security forces against protesters since February, 1st when the military seized control of the government. Local media say nearly 40 people were killed Sunday. Now, despite this protesters were out on the streets again Today reporter Michael Sullivan joins us now from neighboring Thailand. Michael the government seems very motivated on putting an end to these demonstrations. What's the latest? They are motivated. But there were more demonstrations again today as you mentioned in Yangon in Myanmar, second city, Mandalay and elsewhere, and there are reports of more protesters killed by security forces again today as well This after yesterday's violence, the younguns suburb of linked our yard where security forces used live ammunition against protesters, killing dozens. And where several Chinese owned or managed factories were set on fire. It's not clear by whom, though state run media claims protesters prevented firefighters from reaching some of those factories, the Chinese Embassy said. Several of its citizens were injured in those fires and ask the military to protect Chinese property and its citizens, and the Hunter has responded by declaring martial law in length Dario and five other townships. Do we know why those factories were set on fire? No, there is this perception shared by many in Myanmar. I think that China has been largely supportive of the coup makers and hasn't really called out the military for seizing power is the U. S. And Great Britain and others have done And that's really frustrating. Too many Indian mark trying to get this cool overturned and this anti Chinese feeling is real enough that after these fires, according to Reuters, Hi. One advised Taiwanese companies Indian mark to fly the island's flag outside their businesses to avoid being mistaken for mainland China owned businesses. Still no word, though, from depose civilian leader on son Souci since her arrest of February 1st up it's Saturday, a high ranking official member of her party, the National League for Democracy, urged protesters You continue to resist, Michael, is this having any effect? It doesn't seem to be. I mean, the party's acting vice president has been in hiding along with many other NLD leaders, and he surfaced on video on Saturday, calling this the darkest moment for the nation and urged the NLD supporters and Myanmar's ethnic minority groups, some of whom have armed wings who've been fighting against the military for decades. Come together and continue what he called this revolution. But the speech doesn't seem to have gotten much traction among the protesters or the ethnic minority groups and the demonstrators don't need any more encouragement there Disobedience movement and a general strike. Have already brought much of the economy to a halt.
Myanmar Fails To Stop Action Even as It Cracks Down on Protesters, Journalists
"1000 demonstrators against last month's military seizure of power in Myanmar emerged cautiously today under the streets of the country's second largest city. Those in the vanguard carrying homemade shields bearing images of the three thinkers salute the movement symbol of defiance. The protest at Mandalay took place even though security forces have shown little reluctance to use lethal force to break up crowds. Those who marched gathered for just a few minutes before dispersing to avoid a possible confrontation. With riot police. Another group made him mobile protests. Driving through the streets on motorbikes. The protesters have adapted their tactics and response to the escalating violence from security forces, including the firing of live ammunition at crowds. The government's crackdown has left more than 50 protesters dead. But his failed to slow the widespread protests against the February 1st coup that ousted the elected government of Aung San Suu Cheap. According to the Myanmar based Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, more than 1800 people have been arrested in connection with the coup. Dozens of journalists have been arrested, including CNN's awe of The Associated Press has been charged under a public order law that carries a penalty of after three years in prison. According to local news reports and social media and what has become a daily occurrence in Myanmar Protests. Marches were held today in cities and towns across the country. Their actions came after a dramatic night and Yang gone when thousands of residents broke the eight p.m. curfew to show support for a group of protesters who had been trapped by police in an enclave of streets. They came out of their homes, saying songs against the coup and banged pots, pans and other implements together partly in the hope of diverting police from the hunted. Protesters estimated two numbers 200 Witnesses said Several dozens of those who had such shelter in the city's song strong neighborhood were arrested, but others made their way home at dawn several hours after police withdrew from the area. More from reporters. Simon marks what does the military in me and ma want to happen there now that they've seized power and a brutally suppressing protests demanding the freedom of the leaders of the National League for Democracy, the party led by unsung sushi that decisively won last autumns elections in the country. In the short term. Of course, it's apparent that they wanted to stop the new NLD government from taking power, but how much ongoing control do they want to play over affairs in the strife torn country? I think they've been just generally really surprised by how many seats energy has one solid. Jeffrey is non resident scholar in the Asia program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. And we mean question all of us are asking is whether the military intense to revert to a direct and complete control of the country. As it did in the bust, or or tweak the current system off indirect dominance in a way that addresses their insecurities. About holding on to power and the promise of fresh elections and appalling the 2000 and eight constitution that they've been making since the cool suggest that they are really leaning towards maintaining indirect control by designing new rules that would cut down in these Dominance in the parliament and give a boost to the to the military lined BST party, she says One piece of evidence pointing to that conclusion is the appointment of a new election commission that the military directly controls replacing the independent commission that preceded it.

"Julian Marshall. The day after the army assumed absolute power, and me and mother military ordered the closure of the international airport and that sealing off of the country from the outside world along with the sight of armed troops on the streets of the capital neighbor door Dang San Souci, back in detention has conjured up memories of Myanmar's darkest days during nearly 50 years of military dictatorship after 10 year experiment of power sharing with civilians. The generals are back in charge. Mr Cheese Party. The National League for Democracy is called for her release, although some NLD politicians who worded were detained And now being allowed home. There's already been a chorus of international condemnation and calls for renewed sanctions while inside the country, there's bean a brave appeal for a campaign of civil disobedience. From a group called the Young Gon Use Network. I've been speaking to its founder, Things are shun Li Ye in Yangon. The civil disobedience is one of the tactic that the young people in the camera there now launching that campaigned across the whole country that they're calling for the actions, especially from the civil seventh. From the governments that are to stop working for the government for the military, gender. Beyond this call for civil servants for public servants to strike If you like to take industrial action, what else do you have in mind? Do you have street protests? For instance, in mind? I'm not seeing streets protests against the military crew by now, But we have seen a street protest organized by pro military people like 1000. People join in, and they're celebrating that military coupe so that what is even right now happening and I don't see Thea, ruling party members or ruling party called for protests or the other activists. I think they're planning. I think all the plans are on the way, but the first initiated that we've been seeing it's theseventies obedient, and there are many other core like tonight at 8 P.m. people with the banging, making a song against the military at the same time, you know from their houses, So that's what we've been hearing their different initiated or social media offline online. Yes, I mean, you're too young to remember the Years of military rule in me and Ma, but perhaps not too young to remember the way in which the military crackdown on dissent in 1988 and again in 2000 and seven People died. Does that worry you in any way in calling for this campaign of civil disobedience, many people being killed not even in the mass protest, but people are being killed almost daily in the embassy. That's something the world didn't know that because we have civil war happening in the Western part, haven't they? In the northern part, you know the Southern part, you know, in all parts, especially ethnic areas, Civil war is in rage and the military being Killing civilians. You know, almost every day, and houses were bent down, for example, so people being arrested arrest even I myself was charged and I was facing trial for two years. I organize a protest against civil war. Just for that reason, you know, Still off course it's fearful. You know, we've been living and that this for many years since we were born. I think we're getting experience with this. Now we see a tremendous amount of fear, fear and threat. We're feeling the same thing and their civilian government as well. The military have been conducting these wars against ethnic minorities in me and mar and in particular against the re hinges. While the NLD has bean, the ruling party in Myanmar, I think that's the different understanding from the international people, also from people inside country for the people in Yemen, they fell. I don't sense it is the only options is the only hope as only leader. They can think off right now, so they have no options. The others are like small military affiliated or ethnic related. Hardy's another one is, you know for the Ranger cry. Says the international community saying all these things you know, people cannot make sense of it because off education, the critical thinking lever it stay very low and the information all the brainwashing the propaganda flowing inside country against the Muslim. There's the Islamophobia, just like in other countries, You know, it's the same thing in Emma. So people are fearful of this and that and the range of people, for example, they have a dark color. They are Muslim. They're poor. You know all these things combined. Created that kind of hatred. So it's like a mess. Hey, tricked. I'm in the military declared a state of emergency for one year. They then say there will be fresh elections. They're committed to a multi party system. Do you believe them? It's so hard for us to believe what the military saying because they've been saying different things almost different days. For you and other people of your age. You must be therefore rather depressed at the prospect of maybe living your lives in me and mark under a continuing Military dictatorship. If that is, what you think might happen is like a nine mil is the worst nightmare we can imagine. And that happened, you know without without prior notice. The democracy that we have was no real. It was all fake. You know, we will illusion to feel like we're on the democratic transition. Actually, everything sounds like pellets. Bait with send, you know it looked nice, but actually, it's so fragile and now it's all collapsed. Because it was not real. Many young people off course feel hopeless is the covert time pandemic time? The schools are all closed. Now we have cook what you can imagine Worse than that. You know, we have civil Are we have Internet shutdown in Oregon and state, for example. So many things happening that give us a lot off formal as well. Attends our son Lady, the founder of the Anger on Youth Network, which today called for a campaign of civil.

"From NPR News. I'm Noel King, and I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning. Here's a bit of very recent history in the United States. Just six weeks ago, retired General Michael Flynn, an ally of President Trump, Called for a military takeover in the United States endorsing false claims of election fraud. Flynn called for martial law paired with a promise to rerun the election. That never happened. The U. S military upheld the constitution, the facts and the law. But in Myanmar democratic safeguards were not a strong and Myanmar's military has executed a plan similar to that proposed by Michael Flynn. Military claimed election fraud and now has seized power, promising to rerun the election later. Troops also detained the country's leader on Sun suit, She and several others senior members of a ruling National League for Democracy Michael Sullivan is covering the story from Thailand. He there, Michael Steve. How did the coup unfold? Early this morning, the military rounded up Suki and several over associates in the capital, Nippy dog and telephone and Internet service was down for several hours after that, and Then there was the official announcement of the state of emergency on TV later in the morning. What we've heard is that in addition to suit she and the other NLD leaders, more people have been detained as well, including some activists, but we don't know how many Okay. S O. The pretext for this was that the National League for Democracy did well in an election, but I mean, they've been popular. They've won elections before. So what claims is the military making about this one? The military is claiming that on some soup cheese party did too well and after the military linked party performed very badly in the November election, worse than many had expected, the military cried foul. It's kept on doing so ever since, and last week, the coup rumors went into overdrive. Especially when the military commander in chief started musing about the idea publicly. On Saturday, the military seemed to walk things back and downplayed the idea of a coupe. And now that's Well, why would today be the day? Just today. It was the day the new parliament elected in November was supposed to convene. And it appears that the military just didn't like that idea, but there's no evidence to support their claims of rampant election fraud. Now, whether that's the real reason the military acted or not. It's not clear, but that's their stated reason that and the NLD not postponing the election because of the cove it pandemic. And I guess we should emphasize since we made this comparison with the calls for a military takeover in the United States, the law is very different in Myanmar. The Constitution's very different in Myanmar. The military is much, much more powerful and I guess to say the least. They've had a problematic relationship with young sons, Souci for decades. Yeah. No love Lost there. The military kept her in detention or house arrest for more than 15 years before the 2011 election and the military drafted Constitution. Ah, loud it to retain a lot of power. Even today, it's in charge of the Defense Ministry, The Home Ministry It's reserved a quarter of the seats in parliament for itself in that constitution, and that's pretty much prevented Souci and their party from achieving some of what they wanted. She's been trying to get the Constitution change. And the military has been happy about that, either. So we have this person who was detained once before for years, actually got a Nobel Peace prize eventually became the democratically elected leader, and now she's detained again. What happens next? As you mentioned, the military said today it will rerun that election. In a year's time. We'll see. But this cool comes at a time when man Mars facing an economic crisis, a covert pandemic Ongoing ethnic insurgencies. New ethnic insurgencies. It's already an uncertain time for being more Stephen.

Why is Aung San Suu Kyi at the International Court of Justice
"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims.
