"Nvidia spilled over to semiconductor and tech shares and helped broad U.S. markets extend a weeklong advance after the trip maker pledged this week to invest in the expansion of its core business Nvidia today up by 9.8% Again recapping S&P up 63 a gain of 1.4% I'm Charlie that is a Bloomberg business flash Hey Charlie thank you so much So we want to get into over the next half hour 30 minutes or so A couple of stories that tap into the big money of sports Collegiate and professional So first step do you remember Tim this might have been before your time there's a Bloomberg business week cover story pre-pandemic it was all about how private equity is everywhere And was it written by Jason Kelly Jason was involved in it Yeah well I've spent enough time with Jason Kelly and read his book about private equity And that's kind of how the book begins actually about private equity Yeah it's all that private And then he did a second book called sweat equity which was just about fitness and wellness Well that's what we're talking about right now Alex whittenburg is investing reporter for Bloomberg news He's with us in the Bloomberg interactive broker studio He and along with some other colleagues of ours have a great new story out in Bloomberg business week called private equity funds pushing deeper into pro sports some really big numbers here Private equity firms Alex spending $51 billion on sports transactions globally last year 22 billion of that in Europe alone That's according to data from pitch pitch book What are they trying to get out of sports Obviously money but why do they see the value there Well okay so in North America this kind of came at a good moment because the pandemic saw some damage to the valuations of sports So private equity saw an opportunity and a lot of that comes because of media rights They've just been exploding in value And a lot of the charts Especially if you have more and more streaming services Exactly It's not just the networks right It's amazons of the world bidding That's right And think about the sports viewer It's like one of the few people who you can keep live no matter what these people aren't recording In business Yeah of course And we need to find out Exactly Exception of course So that matters a lot because that increases the value of advertisement revenue and there's also sports betting That's emerging as a key source of revenue that these firms can tap into because if you have a live viewer people are generally more engaged and all of that comes together I was thinking of the power players summit that we were in out on the West Coast and Beverly Hills ahead of the Super Bowl Tim and I were there They asked us to go We reluctantly said yes We'll spend a few days in Beverly Hills We did it But my point was it was really nice But my point was that they all talked about gambling right And that being a revenue stream And this is the way especially a younger they were thinking a younger consumer the gamification like this is how they want to interact especially when it comes to sports And the opportunities there Yeah it's just another reason why it's an attractive asset I mean you get a large draw for these private equity firms I want to investor kind of like into a Bond holding It's a safe haven asset because even during COVID you know there's that initial hit but they recovered so quickly And then something like sports betting it just shows that there's more value to be mined in these businesses and a range of areas that we probably can't foresee We've all heard of NFTs and tokenization that kind of thing Totally The sports metaverse like that was something we talked about a lot right Yeah it was Beyond gazing at the pool in Beverly Hills Okay Well it's funny because Carolyn and I a few weeks ago we interviewed one of the people behind the new HBO HBO series winning time which is the story of the Lakers dynasty the showtime Lakers dynasty and I'm at the beginning of it now where Jerry buss buys the Lakers for what $68 million which in today's terms is still a tiny amount of money Because the sports franchises have become so big and garnered so much money What are the leagues What are the sports that private equities particularly focused on right now Well they're focused on I mean NBA is a large draw for them right now just because that is booming globally And I would say they're focused on the focus on providing liquidity and they're focused on cashing in on those returns for the reasons we just discussed I think the other aspect that's interesting about this is because of those rising valuations we're just talking about a lot of these limited partners that bought in maybe a decade or more ago They've seen those values rise so much that it's hard to get other individuals to buy them out So that's another reason private equity comes in They have the capital enough capital to be able to easily purchase those kinds of things Alex when they come in and especially when it comes to some kind of ownership of a team right It's usually what passive I'm assuming because I just think about people might think private equity are going to look to cut costs So are we looking to work up the margins and stuff So what's typically the relationship there Yeah so North American leagues it's entirely passive in the leagues have been pretty clear about the rules there because of those exact concerns It's a little bit different in Europe The trend there now it seems like firms are increasingly targeting leagues instead of individual teams because there's fewer risks But yeah the concern is that a private equity firm would come in and get a little stingy And if you need to buy or if you need to increase costs to buy a good player or just for staff there is concern that they wouldn't be willing to do that But for now they're passive Right because that's part of the discussion that we're having when it comes to Chelsea F.C. and Roman Abramovich and that for years you know he was actually liked by fans of Chelsea because he was willing to actually spend the money Kind of like you know they could he was basically gave him a blank check to do whatever they wanted and it was successful for fans Yeah and it's hard to know if a different owner would be as willing to spend as much money I know that's been a concern In North America there's different rules about salary caps And right now leagues are in the NBA for one institutions are only allowed to own a collective 30% and a few people see that kind of changing anytime soon But as you write in your story the Denver Broncos write the selling of this team is going to be a big test because even if they can only own 30% that means they still have to come up with a bunch of other equity or capital right To fill out that purchase price That's right And that's what you could come in right Yeah and the NFL is one of the few holdouts in North American leagues That doesn't allow private equity So it's a real test I mean we don't have time but I'm just thinking about the exit for these private equity firms Because they need to do that Or do they in this or can they just buy creating new ever revenue streams kind of create some Yeah.

"Getting kind of nervous because he was like a rugby cricket race car kind of guy, you know, very traditional heavy sport I sat down. I was like, what would you say if I was to focus my masters around eSports? I was ready for some backlash like that, that's not an actual thing. Do something on soccer football and then just do that later. Much to my surprise, he was like, yeah, cool, do it. Go for it. And so my first research report I did in my master's program was actually a case study on birchen digging into how does this 17 year old Dane have a really rough childhood than become the icon of North American League legends? Pretty cool case study to do, so did that and then did research on. Just overall performance in eSports, what does it take to get to the pros? What's it like to be the pros? What does mental fatigue and eSports look like? What does burnout look like? And all those kinds of things. And I did all that with the intent of coming back into the eSports industry, or not even coming back into these sport industry, but starting my journey in eSports with two primary focuses be one being changing the way the next generation of gamers approaches gaming because I want to prevent a lot of the things that I went through like that really that massive weight gain, the mental health struggles, social anxiety, et cetera, I want to help prevent those things from happening to the next generation. And then the second prong of that was, what makes the elites take and how do we recreate that? How do we make the next beer? And how do we make the next faker? How do we design training, so that this happens for more people? And so those were the two aspects. And so kind of a long story, but degree in psych masters in sport and performance psychology that I brought that back into eSports to try and change the way that we work with gamers. For sure, so you're lower than that of entry for a lot of amateur gamers as well and then I think you're doing a great job at it. Just so you know, we're doing a video conference right now. So obviously, Landon is a handsome man. He's not overweight right now. He's great looking. Ladies, he's available. I'm assuming he's available, no, yes, maybe. He's not. I.

"And at the end he delivers this line or say. Now you listen to me. I'll only say these ones that chinese are not the seek manaf asia in another seniors destroyed a sign that say no dogs or chinese. Allow the at the entrance of bark so these team really played well with chinese audiences but ultimately match like i feel the success of the movie revolved all around the bruce lee's fiery personality and fighting skills that were exploding from the screen. You know seeing him the way. He played seeing seeing him as fearless character. A little bit corky was something the gave chinese people. A lot of pride and chinese pride made the field. You hit but clearly. Not chinese because he became a very popular field throughout all of asia knowing singapore while singapore as heavy heavy chinese presence but they stopped screening the field for a while because of major traffic problems created by masses wanting to access the theater y- philippines iran for six months rate which is pretty crazy for a new movie diva likely to in japan despite the strong anti-japanese vibe of the field the film was made for just about a hundred thousand dollars and eventually no right away of course but by now it does earned over one hundred million dollars the still very torn easy insane you know. Put her deuce for nothing. Made tone of money the show brothers who are the remember. They had over ten thousand dollars to bruce lee. Now they're offering two under thousand dollars to star but he turned him down. You know by now. Every asia producer wanted him. But what would bruce lee truly wanted was to write and direct. He sold next movie mainly because the studio so far and hired talentless hacks out to make a quick buck with no care for quality and he wanted to do something that actually would be a little more. He's movie something where he wasn't just an actor. Putin on the charisma about the movie would reflect some of his ideas. There was no actor in china or in hong kong that this time could flex that kind of power on the set by the despite fighting wheat the studio heads with the director and He was the absolute here off the stuntman. People including jackie chan who later would become very famous. Ultra successful actor but at this time was just a stuntman. Chan testified that lee was always hanging out with a statement always sitting down to eat. The same food of they were served would pay for their medical deals. Thicket care of them and they all loved him for it Ballo yongan costarring in an movie. I ever mentioned yet. Said he got along really well with the low level people on set but he was extremely impolite to his boss in the reward. It's always the reverse key up your boss and act like a tyrant to the people below you. Lee was just the opposite. He was kind to those below him and mean to those over him who which thirty something about his personality. I guess in any case. That's what i mentioned a minute ago. That strong element of patriotism that made The field very popular in china was a beat duffy. Tricky subject for bruce lee. As i mentioned at this stage was still purely an actor with no control over the scrapes otherwise. It's very likely that that party color theme would have played out very differently in the movie. The fact was bruce. Lee was formally not a fan of nationalism. Someone was not a hundred percent chinese and was targeted. For that reason. Bruce lee was all too familiar with the kind of cena phobia. Racism that are often the clues causing of nationalism. Even in nineteen seventy one as the movie was having tremendous says he was feeding someplace. Charentes guard bruce was partially american. Call totally Yet an american caucasian wife he was on the concept of individual versus group thinking he was against the belonging and the idea of identity. These were not the kind of things the mid the proponents of a virulent chinese bathroom multi-track you know looting an interview with a chinese reporter. He was asked about interracial mary agenda. If there was going to be a problem and lear applied many people may think that he will be but to me. This kind of racial barrier does not exist. i. I believe that everyone under the sun. He's a member of a universal family. You may think of that. I'm bluffing and idealistic. But if anyone still believes racial differences. I think he's too backward a narrow no matter if you're caller is black or white thread or blue. I can still make france with you without any barrier. Another interview The host pierre burton ask him. Do you still think of yourself as chinese. Or do you ever think of yourself as north american league incorrectly. Stick style replied. Do you know how. I want to think of myself as a human being. So clearly he had these very de-organise citizen of the word vibe to him he wanted to be judge forty smits as an individual not for his membership in any one group not for being chinese or being omitted or ninety. He was but who sleep period. That's where it began. That's where it and with him. And even in terms of his martial arts. Bruce lee was cleared at his jackson. Doe was no longer at chinese art but was a high but did he said you have to go outside your environment to achieve something better. Some people will say hey. That's accordion key. Can we can't. He was that. But i don't care it. All belongs to mankind in that article. In black belt magazine that i- i quoted from before is a phenomenal article. Not that long that you really captures we laws of you can probably find it. Online is called liberate yourself from classical karate. He say that he's approach. Was i quote that concerned with the blossoming of martial artist. Not a chinese. Martial arts japanese martial artist and martial artist human being i just as nationalities have nothing to do with one's humanity so they have nothing to do with the martial-arts.

"Very folks, I'm Kevin Correia and this is your Esports minute week, one of the LCS summer, split just wrapped up in man. Does North American League of Legends? Never failed to entertain Team Liquid losing their first game with a split the TSM in in response. They bent their start top laner in Alpha replacing them. A cademy teams Jenkins for the spring. Split Champions, Cloud Nine's, post MSI performance left. Something to be desired after a one and two-week had seen. I had benched, they're bot laner in spent before the weekends and apparently that was just not the move to make TSM and Immortals were the only two squads walk away with a three and a record to start the split. And these events were to continue that entertaining start over with leaves June houses. Had their final four chosen for the upcoming finale. On June 10th will see the two Kurt strongest teams from the East and West face off in a rematch from the main melee. The Dead Fuel in the Shanghai dragons. If you're a fan of underdogs, they'll have plenty to cheer for in the New York Excelsior and the Atlanta reign as both. Those teams upset higher-seeded opponents in the Hangzhou spark in San Francisco, shock respectively. Personally, my obvious bias to pick to take the term. It would be the Dallas fuel, their main one of the toughest teams to beat this season. And the addition of his skin Pine is only made them better since their last tournament win last month.

"And honestly, a lot of those other teams are really good. I mean North America tends to focus on Sentinels because they're extremely marked marketable. They're extremely successful. They tend to focus on a hundred thieves because I'm mean it's it's the hoodie org, like they they have a lot of fans off birchman. Yeah their fans type them up and hey, like if you have fancy defense, there's nothing absolutely nothing wrong with that but there are other teams like Immortals like gingi like a ghost like BBG like inbox that have were really good. They were always really good and they've always challenged those top teams, but from looking at social mean you wouldn't really know about that. Like how much do you actually know about like envious Valentin? They've been his that historically over the entire track of Valor and Esports, even though a hundred thieves one for strike. Envy has been more overall successful than a hundred thieves. I don't even think that's like disputable. They have better placements overall wage. Stronger for longer they only got better when they added food and crashes and they're looking really strong moving forward. But again, they don't have the same kind of like reach. So what I think we're seeing here park is like yeah, these big teams are good. And yeah, these teams have had like a lot of success but there is kind of like an inherent social bias based on like what we see because part of like part of analyzing their team is good, especially like right now and Valor where you don't have like a lot of replays where you don't have like access to comms there's no real way for us as like observers to analyze something fully you do kind of rely on like What the mob thinks that if the mob thinks the team is good. They're probably pretty good. And if the mob thinks team is bad then hey, I mean, maybe there's something to it. I don't think that's true. I think it's understandable, but I don't think it's a really good way to analyze anything long-term. So I and I don't really think this is like a regression to the mean for any of those teams at all. I don't even necessarily think that a hundred thieves the Sentinels are like outside of the top five. I think that Gap has all between them has always been significantly closer than a lot of people would think it had been with teams like NBA teams, like gingie, they're not bad. They never have been they just weren't the best and now that they have finally finally cracking that, you know, tear 1.5 ceiling. Everyone's just like, oh wow, like they're pretty good too. You know how good they are in the National on the national on the international stage is kind of yet to be seen. We'll see how good they are dead, but I don't necessarily think that It's I don't think it's necessarily a huge problem. And I don't even think it's all that surprising. I think the signals and stays were by Far and Away the two teams. I think sentence using out is girls but not necessarily face. I think they I think they could I think it's pretty pretty predictable that eventually that they would have like they they may help know their feast or famine said I'm safe. He's sometimes a famine it is what it is. No, it isn't and you did on the money with that but it's it's it's so insane. I mean just like how volatile the scene is so far and I mean and it's only a year old it'll it'll probably even out over the course of you know, three four or five years, but for me on an international scale, I mean, it seems like there's a pretty big disparity between like n a and Andy you I mean currently I'm just looking at the liquipedia ratings and every single in a team is rated over 2000 you all below like mm Korea's the only kind of matching game. N a a bit with with the original Strikers out of out of out of Korea, but it just who's is any of the best talented a region so far on the international scene? It's hard to say without International competition. I do think that the meme that like or not the me the reality that it a historically has very much underperformed in E sports package by sheer virtue of the Erb by the measurement of the amount of resources dumped into it dumped into it as opposed as a region as opposed to other regions. I think that is like true. I think we'll also see that correct itself as time moves on early on in the sport. You don't necessarily want to pick up the best team. If you've got the most marketable team. Yep. And then over time you add pieces to make yourself the best team it picking up the best team in a brand new sport right off the bat. Like that's just it's not feasible one because you don't know if they're the best team. I mean what if something happens what if like something was outrageously broken or they were you know, abusing an exploit that there's too many factors. I think that eventually a lot of that will regress to the mean. I don't necessarily think you'll see a lot of the big organizations remain in an a I think eventually the media coverage will spread out if that makes sense for sure, but I don't think that means in a as bad. I think that said novels are with tens when tens is on they are probably the best team in the world while Sentinels being good doesn't mean that in a is good the same way Vision Strikers being, you know utterly excellent as I mean, the rest of Korea is that all right home. I think we'll have to see it's it's very difficult to I know that I know the point is to like to say like definitively but I just don't think we will have any definitive answer until like until Iceland. That's a fair point. I mean, what's the what's the end-all like Valerie? Season Championship. Just the balance Champions is always called so far. I'm sure to remember what it was even it is called Champion. Okay, cuz that's like the real that's like the world. That's the international per balance so far. So that's kind of what I'm what I'm gearing towards in the future. Just trying to see if I can map out who's who's in income, you know Championship time that they will I can make my bets pretty much but I'm not trying to say that out loud don't need to hear that from me. I'm not trying to get involved with the FBI so far, but I you know, I just got to bring this up and over we're not running short on time. Just want to make sure we get everything that I want to talk to you about out-of-the-way primarily want to talk to you about what you like to talk about which is Rainbow Six Siege because you know, that's that's where your heart that's your heart is that's where your roots to your eggs and everything. That's where you want to be at most of the time so North American League getting set for their stage one who are dead. Power houses to watch out for on that scene. I mean we got space station gaming. They wanted all ask your hand. They do it again. Like they're currently middling the standings who are your favorites you you off man, you go off. Okay. Okay. So the grand unified theory of Rainbow Six is that a team is only as good in my opinion. This is completely dead Hunter take but I think this is backed up by a lot of conversations. I think it's backed up by a lot of data is backed up by a lot of fact stats and Rainbow Six are incredibly misleading because of the funding way like the game is played in that like your injuries typically.

"The import rule is coming into question for the LCS and it could have some major ramifications. I'm the dreams and thoughts Esports minute from E Sports Network people unfamiliar with the import rule right now North American teams who compete in the LCS are only allowed to have to non North American residents on their roster wage rules created with the goal of building up more North American talent. So the teens weren't immediately filled with top players from other regions. Most notably Korea and China, but the last few years at League of Legends world's have shown the LCS is falling even further behind the L C K & L P L and L E C besides Cloud. Nine's Miracle run to the semifinals three years ago. No LCS team has found much success on the international stage in League of Legends competition last year. All three LTS teams were eliminated in the group stage that included the top seed from the LCS TSM who went. Oh and 6 and it's group one of them. Two teams to not win a game in the group stage according to reporting from Travis Gafford this past week. None of the Ten teams in the LCS voiced support for keeping the limit on Imports somewhat Riot to relax restrictions allowing for three or even four non-resident players on each team, but others like Cloud 9 boss Jack Etienne one of the rule removed entirely. It's a tough situation on one hand. The LCS is seeing a lot of money invested into its teams by both organizations and buy brand Partners. So not having wins on the world stage makes it harder to justify those Investments. But on the other hand North American League is already lagging behind the other major regions when it comes to Talent Development removing. The import rule would be a huge blow to aspiring North American prose with l c s teams having a backers. There's likely also concerned from teams in Europe China and Korea that they might suddenly see a lot more competition on the contract front. Not to mention all the teams with talented players that are in other regions like turkey Brazil Russia, etc. For now. It's hard for players to come over from Korea or China because they know that there's almost certainly would be a language barrier with them and their other three non-import team-mates. So being able to play with the team full of players from their region would be a lot better if teens could offer salaries and they could bring over a full 5 from the same country or who speak to same native language. That would be an easier sell for those players when it comes to poaching Talent. Then there's also the LEC to think about Europe has been quite successful in the world stage at least fanatic and G to have established themselves among the best teams in the world with consistent results year-over-year G2 Esports founder Carlos Rodriguez tweeted out today his take first off. He says the LEC and LCS generally follow the same rule set wherever possible and the changes to either League should be mutually agreed-upon, but then he also offered up an interesting alternative. Merged the League's while the Rivalry between the LEC and LCS is pretty cool l d c is taking you far away merging the League's actually be so dope. I'm here by into it as an idea. I have no idea if it's actually on the table, but Carlos is one of the most influential figures when it comes to Global League of Legends. And if he's putting it out there right has to at least be listening. That's all for some sort of the Esports minute today on the Esports chat podcast over the weekend. I talked with Darren Fletcher. He's a longtime Esports veteran. And now the CEO of repeat. G g we mainly talk about the history of Esports and how lessons from its past continue to guide its future wage. Then on the ecology Sports quick take I talked with dr. Seth Jenny the professor recently helped author a paper where he makes the argument that Esports is actually drastically undervalued because of the destination of what sports is it gets to that core question of does Esports stop at the top leagues or does it continue into ranked play if that's e Sports is all of Rights Revenue then Esports revenue office. She come around to this way of thinking and you can hear why on that show as always. I'll be back.

"Everyone must stay home unless it's medical groceries or exercise. So i guess. The exercise thing applies descends and leaves players. I gotta i gotta go out and play. Nhl hockey so. I'm gonna violate this whole. Stay homeward right anyway. Everybody seems to think it's fine is key carry on but now it's interesting because obviously as a hockey fan i wanted to go on but also have some sympathy for those. Who don't like hockey which must be at least two out of every three people in ontario won't care about the nhl and what. What are they got going on. Because that's the defense. I keep hearing. Oh we need something to to entertain us. If we're being told we must stay at home. Well that's fine. What about the other two thirds of the province. That don't like hockey. What do you do you write them anyway. The point was again into this discussion. About rivalries and such and bill. Daley gary bettman's henchman talk today about the north division which a lot of people are excited about. And it's not just an all canadian. It's this new reshuffling of the deck. This full realignment Lot of people are saying what might not mind this on a full-time basis all canadian. More rivalries from playing teams more frequently. Bill daley pay basically rained on that parade today. He said the intra division play. This is his quote exclusively. Certainly creates a heightened degree of familiarity between the teams. Each game carries that much more importance as an aside by the way james. I would also argue that even if your favorite teams not playing like. If it's an you know it's a divisional game. You're going to get to know these teams very quickly because you know your oil is for example only have six opponents all year. So you're gonna see them again and again and these opponents will then play other north division opponents and suddenly these non oil or games or in my case the non senator games. They're going to suddenly start seeming. That much more intriguing. I think anyway. Carrying bill daley's deal. He said each game carries that much importance. I read somewhere. People are saying every game is a four point game. in that's true. I think that can really be compelling playoff format can be compelling highlighting the rivalries can be compelling butts and this is where he brings out his wet blanket having said all that while. I'm excited for it. I don't see it as a long-term alternative or a possibility for the league in particular. I must a lot about the north. The all canadian division is that something we can see continuing on into the future. I think the commissioner has made that clear that certainly not in our current thought process. We very much consider ourselves one league north american league with markets in canada and the. Us we wanna make sure..

They weren't mobile except the three. They came down during drc and that was disappointing. The mobility of them throughout the normal end of the road shows is a great visual and was missing here screens. The video screens weren't sinking up with what was going on.

The show hates zeus and tom. I recently found your podcast. And i have to tell you you guys are fantastic. I absolutely love the show of been offense and seventy seven. When i convinced my dad to buy his seven year old son kiss alive to and have been a huge fan. Since i've seen them live on every tour since lick it up and just can't get enough kiss content in my life much to the chagrin of my wife. I work in sales. I spend the majority of most workdays in my car which is not always thrilling. Finding your show has been an absolute game. Changer i started with some of the album review shows are now going through and starting at the beginning. Your approach to the show is refreshing since you don't just swoon over everything that kiss does approach with critical minds. Basically we agree that you can still love most things about the ban instill admit that they have cranked out some really shitty songs over the years. The humor in the show is awesome. The i won't use story almost made me wreck my car. I was laughing so hard. The smashes thrashes and shit show was so funny. My wife asked what the hell was wrong with me. Because i was sitting at my desk with headphones on and laughing my ass off speaking of shitty songs. I am amazed that the two of you have such differing opinions on what is great. In what sucks and how. Those opinions differ from mine. It's part of what makes it so great and has made me go back and re listen rediscover some songs i had written off. I still can't believe that you both hate king of mountain top ten kiss song in my opinion and you love garbage like king of hearts. Ll anyway just wanted to drop a note. Thank you for the hours of entertainment now and in the future. Keep up the great work ray farrell from pittsburgh. Thank you ray that those emails are amazing. We appreciate that's awesome. Thank you for listening. Thank you for taking the time for writing all that. That's that's awesome. We're we're so glad you found the show. You're having fun with it.
