Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League
"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.

Washington releases RB Guice shortly after arrest
"In the National Football League today came from Washington Washington football team. Cutting ties with running back Darius Dice the Redskins, releasing a statement that they had released the running back just hours after he was arrested on a felony charge is one of the accounts of strangulation and this is a situation in the NFL. That is one that leaked. This does not want and when you're the Washington football team As I was still trying to get used to everything of saying that the not saying that the the nickname George, but just off seeing the Washington football team, there has been a lot going on with this organization and the in the the football team, making the Ah the immediate move to arrest to let go of various guys. Following his arrest earlier today. Yeah, that's one of them. You know You messed up, right? You really messed up. It is. It's pretty bad, like if the team is saying, all right, we're kind of cutting bait with you because he's still young. I mean, he basically has it played. He's been hurt his 1st 2 years in The league and the team under Ron Rivera is clearly saying we're going in a different direction. And then you go back on the heels off, which was which probably didn't allow the legal system to play out and say All right is the guilty is the innocent. Any of that is all of the allegations that had been hurled at the Washington franchise to begin with. There was the Washington Post article. I believe that came out talking about the sexual alleged Sexual harassment and misconduct inside of the organization. And now when there is a potential strangulation and domestic abuse or abuse in general Darius Guys, he didn't stand a chance. This is a This is a time when he was in the wrong place. Wrong Time had had been another franchise. They may have been a little bit more patient to see some of the facts come out. But after that, and the name a no way they're not taking Any negative press from anybody does not named Dwayne Haskins, you know, and and when we had John Middlecoff on last hour, just talking about the situation I don't see with with what you say with the injuries. With the the history And now with these latest, you know, following his arrest on the domestic violence charges, I don't see Darius guys being back in the NFL. I just I don't I don't think that I don't even think it's a situation. Well, maybe down line, it would have Tio. It would have to be that he gets exonerated on all charges that it is. Clear that he didn't do it like that's like that's the first thing, and then he's gonna have to go into camp on a minimum contract and prove his worth like He's gonna have to go to a work out to be a few running backs injured, but it's not gonna happen, Probably this season. It will be a next season kind of deal because he's got some legalities that are gonna have to play out which which We don't want to presume his guilt yet Mohr or his innocence for the poor for that bag, But You know, it's gonna have to wait for the dust to settle and with Antonio Brown. It took them a year to quote unquote investigate him and he was in professional purgatory, and he wasn't even facing legal charges. So who knows how long this will take?

I'm sorry. That's not Caleb Brantley. Yeah, um, Caleb barley. Partly for college football season, he's going to get ready for the draft. I would think there's more players like this.

If they see you forcing it and try to hard it's going to permeate the rest of your football team. I think they saw that last year. Okay, Nellie that completely and that's when they lost the Tennessee opening day. It felt like somebody took a ball tournament. And they forgot the really have 15 more games left and that the season was over. It felt like a complete led down and I clearly believe it affected that football team early on, and they were never, ever able to recover from that.

"To hang out with us their head thanks to Chopin's of performance line so bacon, Mayfield was a darling before last season, had a terrific rookie year broke the NFL rookie rug with 27 touchdown pass in 2018. In his second year with a lot of people had high expectations for him in that team. It didn't end well. He did throw 22 touchdown passes, but he was intercepted 21 times The Browns after all that hype finished at six and 10. Bacon. Mayfield this year talked about losing himself last year and vowing to make sure it does not happen in this third year. You know, just the past couple years have been a roller coaster of emotions and not nearly as much success as I'm used to. So I would say I lost myself, You know, not having that success, not not finding out what was working. I think I tried different ways of trying to have that success and I didn't find it. So I lost myself in that and I wasn't able to be who I am for these guys on the team, and I've told them that and I told them that if I'm not doing that, hold me accountable. And he also went on to say, and I quote I'm in a much better state. I put in the work. I'm just ready to roll attack. Get back to where I need to be to be the leader for this team for this franchise. The reason I've got here is because I've been myself been able to attack each and every day with 100% effort, end quote. That statement, and what he had to say. Told me everything I needed to know what I was concerned about the Cleveland Browns last year. How would they handle with all that attention and all that hype, And if any adversity happened? Did they have enough dudes in the locker room to say we're going to be okay? That statement, and also, he said about lose himself told me everything I needed to know exactly how the Browns were going to be the Browns that was hoping not to see. That I want up, seeing when any kind of adversity happen. They just fell apart. We'll see if the words he said, going into year three are going to be something not only he, but the Browns of another new head coach is going to live up to, because at a certain point, it's going to be a bump in the road, and you better do it a lot better. You did not deal with the last year. If your bacon maybe on the rest of the team. Well, Freddie, just hold it right there. Another head coach. He's in his 30 years had three different head coaches. No, not a consistency there, man. When you come in is a rook, right? Do you remember me? He wasn't the starter at the time. Tyrod Taylor Wass on DH. Then he comes in, gets a dilly dilly win. Remember, Bud Light had that Phenomenal campaign. A Cleveland you free beer the moment you want it and they beat the Jets. Remember, of course. Your Jets right? And Baker Mayfield, first words of the podium. Billy Billy Cleveland. It went on to have a remarkable, you know, rookie campaign last year, but you go in and It's just it's It's a BLEEP show. It's a novel. Eso Now you're coming into your third year. Um You have new leadership coming in in a guy like Austin Hooper out of Stanford. Is that a remarkable pro bowl type career, you know, going with the Falcons? He gets paid a lot of money to be that security blanket for Baker. Make her physically by the looks, but he did Oklahoma than he did last year, and he was looking little chubby. A times this year, he leaned up. He looks like the guy that I covered in Oklahoma, where you know it's just In peak physical condition. So when you eat when you're when you're looking for continuity, and that's what you need is a young quarterback. He hasn't had it. So now. You get an offensive minded head coach coming in. You have more weapons like a galley. Austin Hooper. A ton of talent on the defense of side. You don't have to go out and try and win every game, and that's what it looked like last year that he was trying to Just force a play to to win a game. We don't have to do that man. Just Don't manage right a game, but just Just play play the system. Don't try and force something. And last year He looked confused. Rattled. Um and Just hearing that tone of voice with him. And watch out because I think that's the baker Mayfield that I saw it. Oklahoma go into the shoe beat Ohio State, You know, go to the college football playoff, and they had Georgia beaten until the defense gave up the honey. The Georgia Bulldog to the college football playoff semifinal. So that's the guy that I heard right? They're not new at Oklahoma, Freddie and I'm expecting I'm going to say big things from Baker. But I'm expecting Baker Mayfield type things from Baker Mayfield meeting. Yeah, he's going to make a player too. That's gonna win a game. For his sake. I hope so. Because they're in the division. It's unforgiving. All right. You and it got the Ravens in their defence. Lamar Jackson. The last time I took with the VP last year, you got the Pittsburgh Steelers. You know, they're not going to be down and they played as hard as anybody That didn't make the playoffs last year, ate and ate without Ben are absolutely and now they get him back with no soldier than elbow issues that are going to be part of that football team. So Baker Mayfield can't just be the only dude that has to be D Y J do your job, the plenty of the guys that got to just do that and not try to force things. He was not the only one trying to hit a home run every play. You can't win in the National Football League that way, and especially if there's a God is going to be the leader. If they see you forcing it and try to hard it's going to permeate the rest of your football. Nothing. They saw that last welcome, Ellie that completely and it's when they lost the Tennessee opening day. It felt like somebody took a balloon. And they forgot the really have 15 more games left and that the season was over. It felt like a complete led down and I clearly believe it affected that football team early on, and they were never, ever able to recover from that. He can lead the way. Baker Mayfield, but other dude's got a D, Y J as well. Do your job and everything should be a lot better than what happened last year when you would six in.
Bill O'Reilly Responds to NFL Plans for Social Justice Decal Stickers on Helmets
"For the O'Reilly Update Message of the day the National Football League damaging itself by getting political League officials, owners, players are compiling a list of names to be used on helmet decals. Including George Floyd. The program, alas, throughout the entire season. Commissioner Roger Goodell recently apologized for his opposition to players taking a knee during the national anthem in seasons past. Saying We were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and now encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League believe black lives matter. Well, most Americans believe black lives matter, but they also believe police lives matter. 10 players put a decal of slain police officers on their helmet, Mr Goodell It's not Then your league is a political organization, not a sports franchise. In 2016. The NFL rejected Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, who wanted to wear stickers on his helmet honoring the five police officers. Slain in Dallas. According to league policy then and now quote Players generally must present an appearance that is appropriate to representing their individual clubs and the National Football League. The term uniform is used in this policy applies to every piece of equipment worn by a player, including the helmet. So if you were banning In the past all slogans on uniforms. And you're going to change it now You've got to change it for everybody. By agreeing to social protests on the field. The NFL will anger many fans. You will not support the product. That means less revenue for the lead. Let me spell it out. Fans can't go to many of the games this year. So the merchandise the shirts, the jackets off the teams is the primary source of revenue. Well, I'm not buying any merchandise if the NFL bans police officers from being honored I'm not going to do it. But far more important is the message. That the NFL is apparently sending America's an unknown fair country. Okay, we need to improve sane people agree, but it's all one side now. So I don't believe this is going to work out well for the National Football League, the N ba Major League baseball of his starts. There should be no politics on Game day. That's easy. No politics on Game day. If the players want to talk about social justice on for that, then come on my programs any time. But not on games during the week with the press conference is sure no problem

"In the National Ball League for the soon to be ex Washington Redskins among the three teens who played in the NFL. He is Brandon Noble, played defensive tackle in the National Football League, and he joins me and Courtney right here on ESPN Radio Brandon, many people did not believe that this day would come. That Washington changed their name from the Redskins. Whatever that name is going to be, but you play for that organization. You know exactly what that Brian has always meant to that team. And to that city. What are your thoughts about the Redskins no longer about to be Redskins when it comes to being a football team with that name in the NFL. I mean, it's definitely Freddy. Hard to wrap my head around, right? So I grew up in Virginia down the virginity Redskin fan base there. You know what I spent seven years. In the lead. We're basically in the NFC East. Whether I played for the Cowboys on the run on just I mean, growing up a football fan, right? I mean, Russians are part of NFL tradition. Just the name right so So you know Cowboys Redskins Cowboys Eagles Cowboys giants like that. The whole thing like that is that is that my childhood like Joe Gibbs is in the heart and all that stuff, so it's really hard to wrap your head around. I know there was a strong push a few years ago in and dance cider time, fended it off, kind of where we are right now 2020 and you know there's a lot of financial pressure from stuff like that, and it looks like he's gonna do it. Yeah. After 87 years. It took just two months for this whole thing to come to fruition where Something's going to be changed, as you know, growing up in that area and playing for the franchise. This name change has been discussed for decades. I'm curious what you were a player. How often did that topic come up in the early two thousand's about a name change? And do you remember maybe the first instances as a player either being asked about it by media members or where it was truly being discussed? Well, you know, I mean, it was. It was definitely kind of it was circled around every once in a while, and I think you know such a different climate. Uh, you know, back in the 19 hundreds at the early two thousand's, we were in it and everything has become No So political now, so just kind of you know, here, there, it's you know what? This night of faces time It took a long time definitely did. It's definitely something that's been talked about for a long, long time. You know that that fan base is not going to be happy. But at the end of the day, you know, look, you know it's capitalism, right? I mean, he felt the pressure that accent from all from all the big sponsors. You know Amazon self, just about body, right? I mean, that's really what it boils down to is a business. Know any treat it like that, and he's going to do it. And I did it a same time. I'm still gonna have a tough time with whatever you know. Hopefully the warriors or something simple like that. So it's not too far away from kind of, you know the theme. I guess it's it's so it's hard to wrap my head around.
Mahomes' big bet on football pays off with $503 million deal
"Start off the show with the conversation that really dominated the Monday edition of the Zack Help show on CBS Sports Radio. And that was the breaking news of Patrick Mahomes inking a 10 year deal. $503 million contract What it is worth up to, and that's the news that has really rocked the sports world and hit the sports world since the week did commands only two days into the week, and when I look back at this Mahomes deal And I think he's 100% worth it. I know some are going to be even with this talent, skeptical of giving any player a 10 year deal truly a 12 year deal because of the two years that are still currently on his contract. I look at Patrick Mahomes, though, And this was evident to May after his first full season in the National Football League that not only was he the best quarterback in all of football, but he was the best player in all of football and even look at last year. All the adversity that was thrown in front of him. You had a knee injury. Then you're down 24 points in the divisional round. You're down 10 points in the FC championship game, and you're down 10 points in a Super Bowl with only 7.5 to go. Think about that for a second. Look out how much was working against them? Look how much were working against the team a lot of it their own fault. Because they were the team that went down 24 then 10 and 10 as well. And even with all that it shows you how great Mahomes is because Mahomes was able to dig himself into a deep hole, and he was able to find the way against all odds because of his talent to back himself out of it. Now It's not only him. You need playmakers around you. You need a good coach. And you need a defense that in the second half of the season, that defense really did step up. The game where my home's got hurt. I think they were playing the Broncos. I could be wrong on that. But whoever they were playing that night, I remember talking to Steve Spagnola after they won the Super Bowl inspect set on the show. It was that night where Mahomes got hurt. That was the turning point for the defense this year with the Kansas City Chiefs.

He went on to reference Elizabeth Warren and you know, and we're off to the races. You know, Doug with this last these tweets the last 24 hours or so when you and I talked about this yesterday, we said, Listen, the best thing to do. Is to ignore this and just move on, because the NFL if they could do it over again from 2017 they certainly would say You know what? We're not going to just start getting scattered because President Trump was tweeting about kneeling football players and Colin Kaepernick. The best thing to do would be to ignore it, because, as we've said, Look, there's political stuff. And this is something that you can't win right and notice. The difference in the responses so far is that when this happened Redskins you know the NFL. Really No one really said anything. You know, it's like we've done this before we've been through this. Roger Goodell put the moment of unity out there, saying that we blew it last time. Let's go forward together. And NASCAR had a bunch of drivers who responded to this because this is something brand new for them and that you know, and we talked about saying, Hey, you know, be ahead of things and just move on. Because you can't win this battle that that's going to go on. If you can continually to engage this.

A Turning Point: Race Relations In Sports
"It has now been more than four weeks in George. Floyd was murdered nearly a month since we all watched him. Take his last breaths. It feels like so much is different, but real actionable change that takes time. Many who took to the streets in protests have now resumed their daily lives, so now seems appropriate to discuss how sport will handle affairs moving forward. As North American teams and Leagues Continue Their Return to play processes. It is vital that the conversations and promises made when the racial issue was hottest that they do not go away. In a few moments, we will welcome in our panel to discuss how that should happen, but first a look at how we got here in the first place. He will have color have been argued about beliefs, and that's not right. That's not right by any was standards. The point he was making gut twisted from the start. The beginning when Colin Kaepernick I made is public protests peacefully heap I sat on the bench during the national anthem to bring awareness. There's a lot of things that need to change once one specifically police brutality. There's people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. It was the summer of two thousand sixteen, when he bursts truly used his platform as an NFL quarterback to speak out against systemic racism by police in the weeks leading into that preseason payment. San Francisco capper Nick had watched. We all had. To white officers pinning down Alton Sterling. And pumping. into his chest and back. He saw the traffic stop in Minnesota when Philander Casteel was killed in front of his girlfriend in charge. And captured it could not understand how mental health therapist Charles Kinsey could be shot by police when he was lying on the ground with his arms up in the air, people of color have been targeted by police. Cops are getting paid leave. For killing people. That's not right. That's not right by anyone's standards. And yet from the beginning law in. pre-game gesture was misrepresented and downright manipulated. The Christ came that he was disrespecting the flag that it was a slap in the face to military personnel. But when active soldiers pointed out, they serve to provide their citizens with the freedom of speech that capture nick was exercising. That narrative quickly was quashed when army veterans who had been in battle, echoed that very sentiment out of national football league buildings team needs I would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem personally. I, look at that as a salute to the people who have paved the way for us. Our Organization believes that. You should. Respect the flag and so you'll save those individual decisions to expression show. On individual form. And that became the prevalent message. Don't do it here. Stick to sports. The underlying tone. How dare you protest without our approval we're. Do you get off? Colin Kaepernick criticizing anyone in another uniform. Right the men and women lead for this, I- scenic. First hand. For. Somebody do that to get paid millions of dollars. It's ridiculous. Cabinet remained undeterred. United States Army Bet. Nate! Boyer who did tours of duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan encouraged him to kneel and not sit. By, taking a knee voyeur told him you show your respect for fallen brothers that way. So capture nick did. And then more NFL players followed. And yet the public and political conversation in the US would not steer toward police brutality. No matter how much star athletes peacefully attempted to. And the leader in America's biggest chair. Amy Shirley Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners? When somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a job appealed right now out each fire. I! Capture Nick became a source of division for standing up against injustice. He hasn't taken a snap since that twenty sixteen season. And at this year Super Bowl USA. Today's jared bell minced no words on why that is I. Think it's pretty obvious. He's been blackballed for Colin Kaepernick not to have a job is just. It's the worst look for the NFL. No conversation was more dominant inside NFL. Locker rooms that season than the Kapernick one teams are made up of players of all ages of all backgrounds of so many ethnicities. If you actually want to listen to different perspectives. If you're an athlete who would want to hear what your peers had to say, there would be no shortage of takes to soak in. But fundamentally the want would be to understand capper knicks fundamental point. After George Floyd one of the League's biggest stars reminded us that many still didn't I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Maybe that was the crossroads moment because the reaction to. It felt like something had changed almost as. That won't cut. It anymore drew. brees in the rest of the NFL were told right away, the new. Orleans quarterback came under fire. The players in the league had just about enough of the establishment silence. They had captured message. They were not gonNA. Let owners and Roger Goodell get away with it this time. Would have other Jewish Knowledge George if I was. I was George Void. Jewish. And say hi in. Regard. To me right. Breezes all pro receiver found Dallas's bruising runner and Houston's electrifying quarterback, and Kansas City Super Bowl Mvp. And Obi. And they all let you know. We. Condemn Racism and assistant. Matic oppression of black people. National League, admit wrong and silence our players from protesting. Also. Black lives matter black lives matter. Like loves. To Have Patrick Mahomes the next superstar the NFL. Front and center. That was massive. And the very next night the commissioner uttered the words you never imagined would happen. We the National Football League Immune. We were wrong for not listening NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League believe black lives matter. Progress. Probably a step forward. You want to believe so. The day after the commissioner changed his tune, breeze went to social media again. He'd already made his hollow apologies without actually saying sorry, and he finally seemed to be listening to what some teammates had to say, and after all of that even drew brees somewhat stood up to the president. It won't Change Donald Trump of course, but maybe it will make others think. Perhaps it will create more uncomfortable conversations to allow for a greater understanding among all of us. And at the very least it has given others throughout sport. To have the freedom to finally say their piece open believing they may at last be heard. Or country is in, trouble. Basic reason is race. You're seeing an example of future. That's fighting for you for you. Right now a fine for you got a grandfather that march legs. Dr King in the sixties. And he was amazing. You'll be proud to see us all. Got Pushing? Forward Doing Casey marched with his family. Members of Detroit's organization. An NBA coach using his voice. Over in Jacksonville Jaguars personnel were among the demonstrators. North Philly's finest. He walked. Kyle Lowery's we can. Priorities were set. This though. This is just the start. To silence of countless elites spoken loud. Until you see action from an, don't forget by the leaks themselves. We wonder what the real commitment to progress actually is. What capper protests was about from. The beginning can no longer be debated. And it is now crystal clear to all of us that no athlete should just shut up and dribble. Nelson Mandela famously said. Sport has the power to change the world. Since George, Floyd perhaps we have learned that change can come more from our sporting icons using their voice platform in pursuit for justice than any jumper were swing. Or goal or touched them. Stick to sports. Sure let's stick to sports bettering the world in a new way. Let's start hearing the real message now. And most of all, let's not get the words and actions like Hafer. Knicks twisted. When he tried to begin the real conversation. Before US AGO!

Setting The Record Straight On Colin Kaepernick As An NFL Quarterback
"The opinion to the national football league evolving along with the public's. The NFL is now saying it was wrong not to listen to its players concerns about Racism Commissioner Roger Goodell says the League now encourages the kind of peaceful protests that former quarterback Colin Kaepernick engaged in. No, mention though of Colin Kaepernick in yesterday's statement. We have the latest now from NPR. Sports correspondent Tom Goldman Tom. Thanks so much for being with us. Hi Scott. What do we know about that video statement from the Commissioner? Was it a response to the video that players released yesterday? Yeah, it certainly seems that way day nearly twenty players all African American, and some of the League's biggest stars, they made a powerful video that included some of the players were named of black victims names that have become rallying cries in the protest movement, and here's a bit of that. Brianna Tiempo. Him. To me right now, Scott, the players also called on the NFL to make several strong statements such as condemning racism and admitting it was wrong in silencing players from peaceful protesting. And what are the NFL do? Well, just what the players Astorg late yesterday. The NFL released video of Commissioner Goodell and here's some of that we the National Football League condemn racism in the systematic oppression of black people. We the National Football League emit. We were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peace league protests Tom what's the significance of those statements from the Commissioner? Well the NFL has a race problem around seventy percent of the league's players are African American, but twenty eight of the thirty two head coaches are white. Only two of thirty two general managers are people of Color, and of course Scott the NFL has a Colin. Kaepernick problem as well. You remember back in two thousand sixteen. He began kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest police treatment of minorities and social inequality a handful. Handful of players joined him, and they all endured a huge backlash. You know they were branded as unpatriotic against the flag and country into this day. Capper Knicks still doesn't have an NFL job, so forget del to say. The League was wrong for not listening to these players for him to condemn racism. That's significant Will we see Kaepernick get a job. Will we see more? Minority hires in important positions. That'll be even more significant. With Commissioner Goodell's statement and show many players. Speaking up and speaking openly now has has the landscape of professional football changed. You know it feels like it's changing. The drew brees story from this week. I think is an indication breeze is the star quarterback for the New Orleans Saints in an interview.

"The National Football League Leaf Mike Lives matter. Commissioner goodell statement follows a video from NFL players last night, calling on him to say precisely that joining us now is seen in sports. Analysts in USA Today a Communist Christine Brennan Christine I of. How did this come about I mean do we know was? Was goodell feeling pressure from players, fans, owners, or is he just sensing a change in the country? I think it's more the latter Anderson Sensing the change. We are hearing that he was not pressured by the Donald Trump. Statement earlier that he didn't feel the need to react. When Donald Trump of course was saying positive things about drew brees, so it wasn't that Certainly, this has been four years in the making, so it wasn't exactly a rush job. In the sense that Colin Kaepernick was speaking out in August of two thousand sixteen, and of course here we are now. I do think I've known Roger. Goodell for a long time Anderson we grew up together he on the PR side, and the as a journalist and I. do think that these are things that he cares about and I. I know a lot of people criticize him all the time, but I can see him watching what's going on listening to his players? He said in that statement he said if there are no black players, there's no national football league. He knows that and he means it and I would have loved to see him. Apologize Colin Kaepernick. I would've loved to see him. Say something about Cabernet, but maybe that's for another day, but I do think the NFL has gone out here in a big way, and I am sure one of their biggest fans donald trump is not happy about this today. Would the owners had to agree to Goodell saying this? The owners usually agree of or android. Goodell does what the owners want. That is a great question. I have not yet been able to get the answer to that. As you probably know many of your personnel that at least ten NFL owners have given to Donald. Trump's campaign. They are big big. Donald Trump supporters including Jerry Jones with the cowboys Dan. Snyder here in Washington and I'm going to guess at some of them are not entirely pleased about this, either because there trump guys and they have not signed Cabernet obviously, no one has and they definitely. The they've put their money right where there is with with trump so. Now. You've got Roger Goodell going against the wishes of Donald. Trump that is a fact I think that Roger Goodell is sensing the mood of the nation and I think he's certainly with the majority of the nation and something that should be said. Young Fans Anderson are big fans. Of Cabernet. They bought all those Nike Jerseys a Nike. T shirts a couple of years ago with cabinet campaign in two thousand eighteen, that was so successful marketing campaign with Nike and so for your future fan base. This is a very very positive. Move me not for the older people, but those fans are going to be around for the next fifty years buying season tickets. I think. Roger Goodell. I WanNa bring in Benjamin, watching former NFL player, and I believe He's the author of under our skin, getting real about racing, getting free from the fears and frustrations that divide us. Benjamin I! Mean you wrote about this in in a under our skin. I'm wondering how you what you make. Roger Goodell statement. About them, we all have certain reactions, but whether he is sincere, or or if he's sincere, I think great good can come from this, and you listen to what he said we the NFL condemns racism. The systematic oppression of black people the next step. is to start addressing within the NFL. So this is a good thing. This is a great knowledge. Moment and I agreed that I do think Roger Goodell cares about these issues. But we look internally into the NFL and we just watched the NFL draft. We saw on our screens where there what gird many blacks and sea level positions. We know that there aren't many many minorities much less black people in ownership. There's three head. Coaches are black. How do we address those issues in the NFL? That's where the proof comes. That's where the action comes is by addressing the nepotism problem that I believe is still exists in the NFL desperate. We can kind of take this statement. Great Statement. We imply whether it was a pressure of players, which again I applaud our players from leading this now let's go to the next step and action. Let's see the proof when we look at NFL clubs now moving forward and Benjamin, your former teammate drew brees obviously had controversy this week when he said he'd never agree with NFL. Players who knelt during the national anthem. He's since apologized for saying that. Do you accept that apology? Of course of course I know drew is no secret play with do for several years led him and his family. I think that we have to collectively understand that when someone says something that they didn't mean something, no misinterpreted and they apologize. We forget that we move on. Do, said perfectly in a statement that he is going to with his actions through feels I. Think the biggest thing though is. He said he's going to listen. And that's the same thing you hurt Roger Goodell say. I'm going to listen look. We live in a country where we can have a multitude of different perspectives, if drew doesn't with people kneeling for the flag. That's fine what he does have to. Do is understand the plight of others understand the pain of others and be willing to step into their shoes and say you know what I may not agree with that I mean I understand that, but because I love you. Because I love your humanity, I'm willing to listen to where you're coming from and I know the on a shot of ago. Christine it's interesting because when when this was being discussed. When with Colin Kaepernick and others, there were a lot of fans who seem to not appreciate the idea of players taking a knee. Certainly, the president did and It seemed like the pendulum. See when once you know. Game started again and Games are being played. It seems like a lot of the owners backtracked.

She's thinking about that for a minute. As you look at the live demonstrations on your screen, not only are people risking their safety by speaking out and confronting police, which is something.

I think you know the absolute you know there's a lot of people that look like you're getting what I was planning you know they felt like they were going in different directions they once they weren't representing the players but truly I I think the union does represent players are specially in in situations like this they provide a lawyer I you know if you go in front of the basically the management of the National Football League and which is the commissioner and all the other decisions that they occupy in the front office and you know it in what happens is you literally sit down I don't say it in a large meeting room which is that the table probably can see thirty people so when you're sitting in one of the commissioners is sitting at the other yeah it feels like you know you're getting your final sentence and but what happens is they present evidence and the evidence is the video of the game or something else that you've done either off the field and are you watch and sit there and there's attorneys are along with the commissioner and a lot of other people that are part of the National Football League and they make accusations why did you do this and in the case of a particular play bass wall the film down to the point where you think you've got plenty of time to make decisions you know you're running up there and be just before the contact they slow down so it makes it looks like it like you're walking in the park you know like you got you know several minutes to make a decision on how you want to do this not realizing that that is the way it happens everything is bang bang and what I mean by that is the players are so big and strong and fast now that when these situations occur for the most part they are so quick and you know moving your head around the state not to have the helmet to helmet contact is ridiculous because it doesn't take into effect if you're defender what the often if the player is going to do and you know so many times the offense player actually dogs who. head and they're the ones that are creating the helmet to helmet hit but you know I I do think that you know with with with his continued infractions over a period of time I think you have a cell is getting more and more just in a demand that this behavior will not. it will not continue and they'll they'll do whatever it takes to stanchions find other things that'll just delay or eliminated behavior. take.

is that no throughout all of this right all the things that are going on he hasn't had time to develop a relationship in the chemistry with his quarterback because he hasn't been there and that's the biggest thing for me this is in a situation like in Pittsburgh where he has familiarity with Ben Roethlisberger he understands the timing already they've been together for years this isn't that he's going to a new situation a new team with a new quarterback that he have to develop that same type of chemistry if you want to be successful with this team and he hasn't been out there due to these

opinion Victor who is not going to win this so if your him or in his camp at what point do you have to draw that line and say you know what this isn't happening I don't have the leverage I need to get back I think you got to have a real conversation with yourself and your agents and your team and just understand where you are and have a real look in that mirror of where you are as an athlete where you are contractually and then have a meeting with your agent and say Hey what how realistic is it for me to get an extension our our new deal how realistic is it because I'm losing thirty granite bay here that I don't have it and that I'm banking on getting a new contract so that doesn't hurt me as much as it should so I think he just has to have that real conversation with himself and understand where he is individually at at and just figure out what it takes to be you know the the level of caliber player that he is is is next level and but he has to have that real conversation with himself and with his team to to put a date on when he can get back when he wants to get back and when he has the humble seven get back in their playful do you think that day to be now do you think you should be gone back I think you should be going back I think that the way this the the way his hold out is I I just think he doesn't have any leverage I I think the way he's going into this whole dot I think obviously the leverage is what he's done on the football field is compare bulls but in terms of the contract in terms of the way that the charges are looking at him I just don't think he has enough leverage to hold out throughout the season pictures of this Michelle Pennzoil performance I'm Victor the NFL just announced a partnership with Jay Z. and roc nation gonna collaborate certainly on the entertainment portion of the product Superbowl halftime shows some other music ventures but they also mentioned this idea of going out and doing work in the community like that we've seen the NFL starting to commit to a little bit more the social justice issues that come with the leave what did you make of it when you saw this in specifically that portion of it explained with the NFL and someone from the outside like JZ I love the I I think it's the perfect marriage between between two brands that can come together really get this thing right for the NFL and and come to speak the language of what's out there in the music industry in entertainment and nothing is going to take with the biggest thing is like social reform and different things that are kind of outside the scope of the NFL so that they can have someone that understands the culture of what the NFL live they understand the culture of the type of fans and people that watch the NFL and what they want to listen to what they want to hear and what they want to see the NFL doing in the community that makes people sit back and say Hey they're they're really work and they're figuring it out there not just sitting back and letting other people do it they're creating unions in partnerships with organizations and companies like roc nation that understand what it takes and what it and understand exactly how to shake things out and and put people in the right place for success and I think the NFL sees they see that in themselves they need someone to come in and help them with this and I think roc nation and Jay Z. specifically are the perfect part you guys can follow him on Twitter at team Vic Victor Cruz as always we appreciate your time and thanks for joining no longer thing from coming up next the.

"The National Football League. Today's Clark -rageous moment is about a problem that is so present in retail and other businesses that depend on reputation in what people post about them and social media and on review sites. There's a big fight going on in federal court that I read about in the Kansas City star where one jeweler was manipulating listings about another jeweler and putting up these horrific reviews, and apparently paying people in foreign countries to write bad reviews about their competitor. And it's going to be quite interesting Donnybrook in the courts. But the thing was if you read any of the reviews where people were giving trashed reviews, you could tell they weren't legit. And that's why whenever you're trying to decide particularly on a service business or local business. Don't just look at how many stars rating they have on reviews or with any hotel or restaurant or whatever read the reviews because when you start digging in and reading the reviews that. That's when you find the real answers that work for you. But when I read reviews, and I read one center way to glowing or way too negative. I kind of throw those out and read the mass of what people are saying.

"So it was great for a one off. It was absolutely enjoyable as a one off. But that's not the type of football. I wanna see weekend and week out. Okay. So follow up question to what you just said d think as everyone else's predicting this is the future of football in the National Football League. I don't think so because you have to have really good quarterback play. I mean, the one thing that was out there would you have Patrick Mahomes Jared Goff, arguably two of the best young quarterbacks in the National Football League one being of course, California, Berkeley graduate or law like myself Cal football in the house. You know, what I'm saying goading their style. You know, you know, the story bowl Ella bowl eligible. That's right. Boy, you notice story you have to have quarterbacks like that to play like that. And you have to have weapons all over the field. There aren't going to be too many teams that have quarterbacks light that with that complement of weapons, and you also have to have really bad defenses or in the field is well, those defense's, although they have really good playmakers on both sides of the ball Houston. You've got Aaron Donald you got Indomesia consume. You got deformed. You've got really good guys. Just don't have enough guys. But no, I don't think this is gonna be the NFL because I don't think everybody has teams that are built this way. But scoring we'll be at a premium, but not like this this was scoring on steroids. Yes. And I thought it was a little excessive for me for my place. I don't for thirteen ten games like the ravens and Steelers used to put out every single time. They played I like the.

If you're going to be a good team. You don't lose by forty one. I mean, can we name? I mean, maybe you go back to that patriot. Team lost you know, early in the lawyer Malloy game.

The patriots and the nineteen seventy dollars Cowboys.
