"Because they want to hold onto it. Daniel, Snyder. They made it just like press Marshall they say okay. You want to move you moving into you. Put Black football team. Guess what he did is killed. Bobby. With I think bobby passed the way. Put It on the team. And all of a sudden they started getting black players now. They've already told him. You're not getting a new stadium until you may remember. They drafted Ernie Dave's. That was the first. George Press Marshall said Okay I give in. Nineteen sixty two. He's the last one last holdout for integration. Okay, I'll draft him Ernie Davis and he said no I will not play for you. Okay and so skip. I think the thing is with this but the. About Nike Nike's the fish out of the NFL you're looking at these big corporations killed. That's a hundred. That's potentially hundreds of millions of dollars now they pool. They're not going to be the only ones that pull out of this Yup. And so it's not it's. I don't think he's going to have much of a choice and I don't think the climate is any better than it's ever been for him to make that chain. Skip forget the climate. If the right thing to do whatever happened to doing the right thing, we're forget the crime. Forget the temperature of where we are in society, a deterrent time. What about doing the right thing to try to make it a habit this since I've been on the air with you I. Don't refer to that last name I'd say. Let's give I. don't even one person to tell me. Something is offensive I don't need fifty I. Don't need the whole, the whole popular demographic. If one person says you know what skip out of great I got a great relationship with a guy at CBS. He was camera three Frazier Meizu. To call them each euro because he was viewed Japanese his sister's path and. Each role in Japanese me, his born when it's supposed to the first born, he came to me, he says. If they shannon you'd say. Can you do me a favor? I said. WHAT'S THE ICHIRO? He's not reporting me. As each Roy Moore I, said sure, he said my sister passed, and she was the burden on. No Problem Frady pro-death point on. All he needed to do was tell me. I've in that all along now. Still got a great relationship. They told you they don't like it. I don't care what I don't care about nine I. don't care if it's ninety five percent says okay. That fire percents says No. Leave it alone. Okay. Everything you just said music to my ears I have been campaigning for years for this nicknamed. Go Away. I will be honest with you. Be completely transparent. I tried for a while in two thousand fourteen. Not to it. It gets during the football season virtually impossible when you're on a sports debate show to use that nickname because it's just the name of the when you say washing it doesn't. It doesn't even have the right ring? so forgive me for the job, but I have campaigned as have many others in the media to get rid of this nickname for I. Don't know how many years for me ten fifteen years. It was just wrong from the start, right. I think Dan Snyder newness heart-to-heart. It was wrong, but he grew up. Redskin fans, father, taking him games at old RFK stadium. And the sentimentality of the deep love that he has for the teen blinded him to to how that nickname does a thin some native American you're not not all. In yet we went through this big flurry of tension in twenty fourteen. Because there was a prospect, they were going to lose their trademark. You WanNa talk about getting hit in the pocket book. If they did not change the name and I. Don't know how Dan Snyder pull this off, but he issued a statement at that point. I will never, and he put it in all caps change. This name and apparently Dan Snyder has friends in high places. Nation's capital high. Because somehow that case against his trademark, somehow win away in the bowels of the. Of our judicial yeah I don't understand it, but it went away. During that time he would on a campaign to convince people there was nothing wrong with that nickname, and he did so by by basically doing a national tour of different reservations. Visiting with different tribal chiefs, he also gave four million dollars to native American causes. and. He had five of his ex players led by Chris Cooley we had him on the other show at ESPN, and they were just campaigning to try to enlighten people that most like a vast majority of native Americans were not offended by that nickname, and there was the most talked about poll of all came out in twenty, sixteen via the Washington Post highly credible at that point, website and newspaper. And it. It's surveyed five hundred four native Americans out of the five million native Americans. We have in our country now. A pretty good sample size again. I'm never quite sure about this, but five hundred four nine out of ten said we are not offended by the nickname. The NFL then conducted its own poll soon after that and found that it was actually. Respondents to the poll who were not offended, but the NFL found that the the those survey between ages of eighteen and twenty nine. We're strongly by seventy. One percent opposed so so. What we've seen in the recent proteome, the younger people like telling you. The younger white people are saying no more of this. We've seen enough of this. We're all with our black brothers and sisters..

"And W. and now back to the Pony Express with Andrew Filippone he and the one hundred and fifty seconds Belmont Stakes about to get underway more than a half century of racing at Belmont Park then what NBC just called Elmont New York CBS sports radio headquarters are in Manhattan Billy how far away is it Elmont New York from where you are no never mind is the law four to five favorite here massive favorite then that'll go off post time in just a couple minutes later Philoponus CBS sports radio yeah we're just talking about how Washington the Redskins are trying to get some things right George Preston Marshall the last owner to in a great has a questionable past when it comes to African American football players so the team is getting rid of his statue outside of old RFK stadium in renaming the four of fed ex field one of the levels at FedEx field it's named after him they they are also gonna celebrate one of their great African American players their first Bobby Mitchell who's in the pro football hall of fame by retiring his number yes so when you do that but you leave the team name the same which is what I think most people are calling for an questioning why is your team still made the Redskins everything you do that ex that ex everything you do that does not include a racing that team name is going to get I think a lot of people to say well it's not enough like you're you're missing you're not you're not doing the one thing you're ignoring the biggest issue with the biggest problem you're addressing what things might be fourth or fifth on the list of things people want you to do to get it right the compromise I came up with was why not keep the logo keep the colors and call the team the Washington Americans or something like that and if that happened what is the risk that Daniel Snyder what what what do you have to worry about that Washington football fans would be more offended by that then the product that the franchise of the organization is put on the field for the last two decades but that would be deemed the last straw for fans yeah I see schools like Stanford in St John's collars are the same Jersey looks the same change names native American mascot change names I mean are there fewer Stanford football fans now because of it but if you were St John's basketball fans because of the name change if the team looks the same it resides in the same city what's the big deal and the reason why I'm saying I don't think the local necessarily has to go it's because I don't think in that case it's a cartoonish native American depiction which is what chief Wahoo that outrage people that's why the Indians no longer use that as their primary logo like that what was that the name of the team that drove people to anger it was it was the cartoonish native American Florida state the Seminoles I think they work with the university works with the Seminole native American reservation and or or nation and they they authorize are they condone the logo and the way the school presents the logo in the warpath Porson mascot like there is cooperation on that front what we live in a world where you're you're when you do something you're going to you're always going to offend someone what we can't get universal agreement that walk that Washington Redskins at the word redskin is a racial slur we do not have your universal agreement on it but we do have a large number of people that find that offensive and so if they do why not change it why not find some kind of middle ground eight five five two one two for CBS eight by five two one two four two two seven I think when Washington starts doing things like getting rid of an owner statue and celebrating the life of an African American player I think like it begs the question what what about your team nickname is that that's going to be that's cool just keep it as is the other things you have an issue with but not not the name that is driving so many people nuts here is Neil in Louisiana CBSSports ready ideal I am what growth momentum Hey Hey listen I'm so glad that this came out I'm a diehard Redskins fan from way back and I've been dealing with this hi come up and read people need to go back and research the term right yeah it was used by the native American partners in a letter to colonel John Wilkins three chiefs of the blanket shawl tribe from the Miami Illinois Indiana area they sent a letter and the reference rate refers to the warriors that certainly okay right you go out in the back all right would return it was an honor it was a why don't so so why don't okay I'm not saying you're I'm I'm not I I did not take the time to do copious research on it before the story broke as we were going on the air so my question is if that is the case why aren't native American groups always reminding us of that why are they always in lockstep agreement saying no you guys have it wrong it is an offensive it's a term of endearment there's nothing wrong with that why don't we just get that from people because that's not what is socially acceptable that's not what moves the needle that's not what everyone gets also use okay I mean so so than their native American groups that just want to move the needle they are native American groups that are twisting the definition of the word for what reason because they just want exposure they just want to be upset they just want to be angry they just want something to complain about okay.

"Raw mark. Graham has joined us here you're on sports byline the former Major League pitcher now color analyst for the padres television network. You know you were talking about Frank Robinson. And then you mentioned about Ted Williams a quick story on my part I was a young sportscaster in Washington. DC in the two years in which he was the manager of the Washington senators. And of course I knew about his reputation tation with the media up in Boston mark but I was sitting on the bench at the old. RFK Stadium. And I looked down. And it's just ted down down at the other end and I wanted to come down and talk to him and interview him and everything but I also knew he could. He could bite your head off if he wanted to but I waited I and I slipped down and gave me those. What the Hell do you want looks and I said Ted? I got a question I understand bone fishing in Florida. It just outstanding. His eyes lit up mark and for four minutes. He talked with me and then he said to me anytime you want to talk. Just let me. We know and every time I went to the stadium. He was very very kind to me but I found that fascinating about him. I found something that he had a passion for and we shared it in a conversation conversation. Yeah you know what I think about that Ted Williams being Ted Williams and whoever's in baseball for a long time and hall of Famer credentials like that. AH IT Kinda I don't WanNA say gets old. But you know people ask the same question all the time and You just get repetitive. And for somebody like Patterson even like for you rod for me you know if somebody came up to me and asked me a question other than baseball and they knew that was a a passion of mine because that would it sparked my interest and you get a different reaction but I think that's that's a great story about knowing and that's that's you doing your homework to That that to me is not just looking at a guy's career and look at it numbers talking about that. That's that's someone like yourself digging deep and finding the person and Ted Williams other than baseball. What makes him tick so I knew he was a sportsman Big Time fisherman and That's a great story. He was on the American experience experience. The one with Kurt Gowdy ABC. For a long time. And so I knew that about him. And the other thing is is that I've always found bounded interviewing athletes that the people out there listening they can't relate to hitting a ninety five mile. An hour fastball sinking. A three point shot but they relate to the human aspect back and I think that's always been important for me to show them that human side of the athlete so they get to know the total picture. Yeah that's the thing you know. I think it's human nature for you even as a kid growing up being a fan I would watch a game and and I just know these guys or ladies if they're playing Sports like tennis. I was the big fan growing up. I watched I watched women's tennis. I watched You know track and field women men. It didn't matter. I just sports but men and women like when we watch them on TV we just think you know as a youngster young. They're just athletes That's all they do but there is a human side and I think that's what's refreshing Coletta. Everybody know and Kinda dig deep down to find out what those people are like. You were traded to the padres on July fourth one thousand nine hundred eighty seven and being traded raided. When you're young can either be a godsend or shocking? How did you look upon it? I think it was a godsend round because with the giants Roger Craig was our manager Al Rosen was our general manager and I. It was a combination to where they liked veteran. Guys I was. I was on a veteran pitcher. I didn't have much success. Up to that point point. They wanted to have some Some veteran leadership in the rotation so they got Dave Vecchi they also got an MVP and Kevin Mitchell. So I went to the padres with Chris. Brown Teeth Comstock Mark Davis so the reason why it was good for me is that he got a chance to start in the rotation I got plenty of chances. Larry Bowa gave me the ball once every five days And then Jack Mckee and took over when he was fired and I then went to the bullpen. And it Kinda AH HA. NFC House bullpen. To answer your question. It was probably one of the best things that ever happened from my career. How did you get the nickname mud? tell you You know. Remember the late Danny. Ozark was on frank third base coach Nineteen eighty-four and my first big league spring training majorly camp at Scottsdale over Indian school and Hayden in Indian school. Is that where the park was right. There was yeah yeah where they had the four fields before we move over to Scottsdale Stadium. And we're doing. PFP pitched trilling practice. Danielle ARC was overseeing covered first base and I covered first base and he said way to go and I was like. Oh yeah I said I know exactly what you're talking about Jim. uh-huh tech rent and So he just always started calling me that in Being a veteran guys baseball like he is and You know being around for as long as I I I kind of took Took that to heart and Kinda you know was flattered that he would Start calling me that. And then he after calling me that other people would hear him. And then it just kind of snowballed. Aw That's how it all came about. You had it stops also in Seattle and also with the Atlanta Braves Houston in Colorado and I thought this comment from you is interesting thing I had to learn how to cope with the downfalls of being demoted while still trying to compete at a level to get back to the big time that cannot be an easy situation relation. How did you deal with the ups and downs? Yeah it's not easy at all because Alter my amateur career and even in the minor leagues I had tons of success and yeah then for the first time you know I had surgery for first of all. You don't think you're never GONNA get hurt. You think you're invincible. Especially if the young player young pitcher so you know now so you know I got hurt had surgery with the braves in ninety one That was the year they went to the world series. I didn't pitch so that was a bummer. So then the next year you know had to start out in the minor leagues and I'm like wow you know it's got its gut check time right now. What am I gonNA do? I'm GonNa just sit back and so am I gonNA try to battle back and got the best shape of my career. Got My back in shape and eventually made my way back up to Seattle in nineteen eighty two and Pitch decently and then you know went out because because Houston in Colorado where kind of went downhill in Colorado and But you know I was it was it was a good experience and Kinda made me stronger being able to experience that make it back to the big leagues. Eight Major League Big League seasons with six teams and when you were asked asked about the highlight of your career. I still laugh when I read this. I had a one two three inning back in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine that I recall. I can't remember it was July or August. Yeah I think it was a weekend series. It was a Friday night and it was like the bottom of the order. It was like seven eight nine hitters. 'cause pitcher was definitely the ninth theater. So but no you know what I have found something out longtime ago. I it's just my personality. You know you gotTa have a personality in life you gotTa. They're things that takes Thursday. Don't get me wrong. I mean I I had a passion when I pitched I. I was a competitor. I you know when I got mad I wanted to fight and I think maybe that was my downfall. I was my own worst standings trying too hard and But I think I know when to have a good time as well Because you know after all it is baseball it was my living living. I made the most of it. I worked my tail off to try to stay healthy and safe the big league level. But you don't want it was time to have fun. You know you have fun and That's that's assist have always been. Well you summed it up correctly by saying I learned to take my job seriously but not take myself too seriously here. The has fun. I mean. That's you know all when I was growing up in coming up in the minor. Lays you meet the big league guys and you find out that you know they're just like you They have to work just as hard. Maybe some guys are more talented than you. But the guys that I gravitated to and loved what are the guys that had the great sets of Uber And two of my dearest friends in the game are Mike. Rubio dwayne hyper and I think the world of those guys. Those guys are like big brothers to me When I got called up to the giants in eighty four as you mentioned before I was twenty years old? They were thirty two and thirty four and Dan. You know these veteran guys were taking care of me and showed me the ropes and telling me what to do and what not to do and how to be a bigger so but they had a great sense of humor. They were serious when it came to baseball. Tell you what when when it was time to have fun they were the best. I WanNa touch your broadcasting career. It seemed like to to me is I thought about it and read all the things and how you approached it when you were injured you did a season of color analyst play by play I think it was with the cubs organization nation in Iowa. And when I think about that you must have thought at some point I need to make a transition after I stopped playing baseball so you started preparing. I'm for that transition. Am I correct in that observation. Absolutely you just out the head Rod. I pretty much knew that I was towards the end of my career. I had had a couple of injuries. I got hurt in Des Moines in Nineteen ninety-five House with the Iowa cubs. My dream was to be a Chicago Cub. I grew up Joliet. I grew up big time cubs fan so I thought my last goal round. Hey sign with the cubs in a chance to pitch as a cub at Wrigley. That never happened. But when I was in Iowa I got hurt again. My shoulder and Dean Ellis was the radio play by play guy. I just sweetheart of a Guy Gentlemen are pro and he became a friend because he traveled with us and did the Games on radio so I was hurt and he said he might once you know you know you get your workout. That'd before the game and Come on up to the booth and sit with me. We'll talk the ball. I serious he goes. Yeah come on up because he worked by himself. I said I'd be more than happy. The two thank you so I went up there and you know doing a little color and stuff like that so I forgot what game it was who come back from a break and You know he says Dean L. Here Nashville Tennessee Iowa cubs game of a three-game series. And we go to the third inning and here to bring you the play by I play it would but it was a great experience and it was something that I always wanted to try and know that my career when I should say when my career comes to an end You know this would be a great gig. This would be something that would be really really really cool to do and That was pretty much the start of it you want said I think part of being a color analyst bringing a little color to the broadcast. Or we're telecast how would you describe that style of yours. I kinda pushed the envelope. I'll admit that I've not your cookie cutter. I'm I'm not your cookie cutter color analyst. It's just what it is. You add some color to the broadcast or telecast I think that's the job you know when when I do a game aim Ron. I tried to teach I try to Tell what's happening and then I wanNA have the You're maybe chuckle a little bit or have a little fun and I think if you do those three things. I think you're doing a pretty good job so my style is kind and like yeah. I'm serious about my job and I'm prepared the best I can but you know you know if you're going to be meat and potatoes baseball. One hundred percent of the time and the game has tended to. It's in the third inning. I mean I think you're gonNA drive yourself nuts and I. I think of like a player on the bench you know players on the bench. They're locked into the game. They're talking about the game but they talk about other things as well. They talk about what they had lunch that day. They talk about when they went to the mall. They talked about their off-season. They talk about their cruel for their wives. They talk about both. I mean you know it's like you know they That's what happens during a baseball game. And I think that kind of the way I go about my business. That's what I carry over into the broadcast cast booth and I think that's the best way to describe how I go about my business. We've got about ninety seconds left and I'd BE AMISS IF I didn't ask you about one of your broadcasting partners the man that I got to know respected immensely. Oh my Dick Enberg. Yeah yeah he is greatly missed the professor as I call them. I tell you what I never worked with a guy who was more prepared and wanted to put up the perfect telecast the perfect broadcast. He knew that it wouldn't happen but he was prepared repaired and he was the best craft and he was the voice of my childhood sports and I was very very lucky and very very to work with the man the hall of fame for many years when you look back on your life and your career to this particular point. Is there anything one thing. That's ingrained in Mark Grants. Mind that I'll never forget..

So that was my introduction to desk. eighty-eight all the desks are number. No senator knows what the number on her desk or his desk is. It's a little carving in the bottom. You didn't know that did you. Did you wear this so number of you have worked in the Senate here in the no this stuff so I chose this task and I just began to think about the sort of the the well chose this task and started thinking about one hundred fifty. He books later. I ran about one hundred fifty five or sixty books mostly in total to to to to research this about senators about the time even a book by Tolstoy that gave me some ideas about how to write this about some things in this book I interviewed about one hundred people. Some former senator some staff some people all that just would have interest in this in ten years later. The book game and it was a long long project it would have been done after about three years. I thought I had finished first. The first draft and I showed it to Connie to is terrific writers. You know and I showed it to my brother Bob in they both said there's there's just not nearly enough here you don't have yourself in this book. Anybody could have written about these eight senators so I went back to the drawing board and and worked on this on and off for a period of years and it came up with this Ada. And I. It's I wrote it for the same reason as I where this lapel pen. This lapel pin. I've worn since I was a workers Memorial Day rallying Lorraina City Tony more since hometown. I might add west of Cleveland on Lake. Erie and this is a pin printed up by the steelworkers it's a depiction of a canarian. Birdcage word cage in Labor history. No workers were the canary died. Workers got out of the mines. They had no union strong enough or government that cared enough in one thousand nine hundred to protect them and so this pen represents what the purpose of my writing. This book is in that. Is that that the power of I believe the power. Our government can make people's lives better pure and simple and that's the progressives are and that's what we do so as I've growing up is the son of a doctor and a teacher and a teacher US Southern Southern woman teacher from the north from the south a woman. I'd say that great growing up the son of a doctor and our mother was a teacher on the grew up in Georgia in a small town in Georgia. You people sometimes say. How did you get this politics? How did you become a Labor abor Democrat? Why do you think this way? And I wanna read two passages one about my mother and one about my first year in the legislature. When I spent a lot of time in union halls a read this rita several paragraphs from each like Hugo black? My mother was a child of the segregated south born almost one hundred years ago in a small town of maybe four hundred people she at a young age found segregation in its white privilege. I confusing then confounding than repugnant. Repugnant no issue inform my mother as much as race while the busing controversy raged in the nineteen sixties in the national media. My mother talked October different. Kind of forced busing. The forced busing of her childhood. In the segregated south black children were bussed. Passed a new all white school to attend a distant underfunded black school separate but equal. They said black children were given books that were tattered in dated after being discarded by the white schools. If the black children were provided any books at all my mother now middle aged organized interracial dialogues at a local at our area high school in junior high to encourage students who went to school together to actually talk to each other and share their stories. She told us about her childhood about race and class and privilege and how she and her sisters even though they were middle class at best enjoyed far more privilege and opportunity than any black child born in Newton in county Georgia. She told my brothers and me always to address older black men and women with their honorific titles. Mrs Rogers Mr Fields Mrs Christian Christian. She'd seen far too many white children in rural Georgia called older older black men Jimmy and Johnny an older black women that he and Hattie blue to this day as a tribute to my mother and because of her teachings I ask older African Americans regardless of their professions their last name and address them Mr Amiss. My mother knew next to nothing about unions after all her parents were farmers in her husband was a physician. But she intuitively understood that people banding together could enhance their collective power raise their standard of living and demand justice and she saw trade unionists unionise. People people like the United Auto Workers Walter Reuther in the Brotherhood of car. Sleeping quarters sleeping. Car Porters a Philip Randolph standing alongside and marching a civil rights. Heroes in that was the. That's the kid 'cause she cared most about. She knew the doctor King was martyred in Memphis advocating for exploited floyd sanitation workers. Her unrelenting activism continued. Two thousand four dispatch satisfied with the grassroots of the Kerry presidential campaign. She recruited a friend loaded a card table and two folding chairs into a trunk in drove to the poorest parts of Mansfield where she sat day after day in front of grocery stores stores registering voters within a month the two of them registered more than nine hundred voters. She kept the names and phone numbers. She was now. Eighty four keep in mind gap got the names and phone numbers of the new voters in. Call them on election day to make sure they've at the age of eighty seven. This shy white girl from the segregated south was was the first in my family to go to work volunteer to elect the first African American President Months Before the Democratic Doc Primary January twentieth. Two thousand nine was the last day she got out of bed and sat up to watch television sitting with my oldest brother. Bob's she had sent Connie and Mehta Washington in and said you go to the inauguration. Seeing history made she died two weeks. After the inauguration watching Barack Obama take the oath of office was the last good day a of her life. Now the other reading I want to do is about my labor education. If you you will early my first term in the Ohio House of Representatives I was twenty two the legislature at adjourned on a Thursday night with no votes in no committee hearings. Friday I headed at home to my district in Richland county hour drive north when those schedule appointments I drove across town to the United Auto Workers Hall their members at always made me feel guilty. The feel feel guilty fueled welcome although we'RE DOT COM from. Maybe that do all right. This privilege. Good doctors made me feel guilty. I don't know where that came from. That is not on this page. Although they endorsed my candidates to the year before and I had many times met with and talk to the unions officers and activists. I didn't really know them. I didn't didn't know their personal stories in even though I'd given I even though I had gone to high school with their sons and daughters I didn't know much about their lives. Thus began my political education the UAW local one sixty-nine in at the UAW local five forty nine. I learned about the history of trade unionism. I learned how union workers has made steel in how they built cars. I learned that strikes are always inactive back against the wall. Desperation because workers never make makeup for the wages loss. No matter how good the contract and how briefly they are on the picket line. And I learned that to a trade unionist strikebreakers SCABS SCABS for the lowest form of human life. Few of these workers white and black expected to have the opportunity that this doctors kid had. But they understood intuitively. I would say that their high school daughter their son John Sherman Highschool John Sherman. Junior high could have more than they did. Their challenge to grasp the American Erkin Dream and launch. Their children upward was more difficult than it was for my parents. Many things could go wrong for them away off a strike a workplace injury Orien- illness in the family each with more devastating consequences than life deals more affluent white family and of course African American workers had greater challenges inches because of decades of discrimination. I learned about luck or you were born. How much education income your parents add? What neighborhood you lived in in in what school you attended? I understood how much good luck I had in. How little some of these workers had while told me what they read? Books and articles in newspapers apor stories about strikes and heroes of the Labor movement. Over the years I came to realize that the best books about workers in their unending struggle for dignity and a decent decent standard of living or novels while Joe Hill Emile. Zola's Herman how Petra did do not does Christ in concrete in John Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath. Now this book is about eight. United States senators understanding all white all male. Everybody that ever held my desk to my knowledge was a man. That's what the Senate looked like in those days you know and I expect if someone stands in front of you or for someone in this bookstore. One Hundred Years From now after eight other senators there will be more women. There will be people of Color as I as I've written about in this book and I I am that that that tells me a lot about sort of where where we need to go in this country. I've talked for a moment about each of the eight senators..

"Here know what you park, happy to have you here with this kind of a quiet day around the bills rookies are they got their rookie development week going on that all in soon veterans have been gone since like last Thursday Friday when, when minicamp ended and of course, we are I think training camp, what we say five weeks from tomorrow, I was five I believe so thirty days. Thirty six days, six days, public math. But so it's coming. It's coming one two three four five weeks away. I brackets five weeks away and those two practices with the Carolina Panthers in South Carolina on August thirteenth and August fourteenth. We've talked about it, they'd been having joint practices for decades, you know and, and there's been a story out now and they're getting a little bit of pushback from their fans in Philadelphia. Because Doug Peterson has said listen, we're going to open up one practice to the fans this year, and they're going to charge admission. Now, the profits from that are going to go to charity, but they're selling them on stub, hub, and that kind of thing and some of the secondary markets and those, those entities take their fee off the top, of course. But the rest of it's going to go to charity fine and dandy, but they're getting some real pushback because their fans are getting to see one practice of training camp. That's it. That's, that's unusual. I think I do I think I agree. I don't know what it's about either. I mean look, the leaks changing it used to be training camp. I think was viewed by the NFL forty years ago as a way to promote interest in the upcoming season. Let's get out there have opened public practices and get people excited. And we'll sell more tickets and blah, blah, blah that that is gone. Right. P teams know how many tickets are going to sell tickets sales, or less of a percentage of what teams revenue is they know pretty much what their ticket basis and who's gonna come and why they're gonna come. And so the promotional aspect of training camp is over the, you know, the hassle remains an and you get a team and you can see it here when a team has such a good setup here with the brand new weight room in the brand new conditioning and player performance center. They have you cannot replicate that anywhere else going. Yeah. What exactly now coaches and bills coach McDermott makes us point too. There is a bonding aspect. I think training Kip talk to us about that. Steven you guys, you know, the bills extremely close team extremely talented team. And you would spend four plus weeks for every years, much longer than any training camps nowadays. Did you get bonding out of that aside from the football benefits where they're bonding was? Absolutely. I mean there's a lot of free time. Mean we're, we're notorious we joke about it now about how much time we spend downtown Dunkirk Fredonia would and or know, of course. Yeah whatever doing the stuff away from the field. But there's no doubt that training camp from what it was in the sixties. And seventies was much different than when I came in the league, they had a times guys that I played with the older guys that I came into the league with back when they were young, there were like one hundred fifteen guys in camp. They just bring they'd roll guys in the hundred and twenty guys in training camp. And it was six weeks long and there were like six preseason games and they used it to get in shape. Trey it was training camp. You had to train to get back into football shape. Nobody was making enough money to be a professional athlete. They were just getting paid to play football. There's a difference now these guys are pro athletes, do it twelve months year. They trained twelve months year. They do it on their own dime for the most part, and it has evolved from that. Now training camp is teaching. It's learning the offense. It's a learning taking reps. It's, it's honing technique. It's a much different atmosphere than it was. You know, certainly fifty years ago, but even twenty five years ago. It's, it's a different kind of atmosphere. No hitting, there's no today's or maybe one, two a day, every three days, I can't even remember what it is. There's no dude. That's there used to be teams that go out. Have a walk a practice. Go back in have a walk-through go back in and then come back out and have another practice. I mean it was like three days they were on the field all the time. That's all gone away. And it's interesting to think about where it's headed. I mean you got a facility like one bills drive. Now why you leave? Why did you leave? There's got to be something else. And one reason is that this franchise has a plan to, to have a big regional footprint. Right. And Rochester's an enormous part of that, and they embrace that, and they they've actively chase the Rochester market. And they send the team over there. And there's good reason for it. I think it's a lot of bills fans are from there. So there's a reason for that here. I don't know if New York and LA I don't know if they have the same reasons for doing it, you know, the eagles have really strong committed loyal fan base, and it's pretty widespread to at least all over eastern Pennsylvania, and into New Jersey as well. I just think things are changing now in an economic sense in the league where as much as they value. I'm sure the eagles value all those relationships, although sponsors, other season ticket holders and yet, they, they might look at training camp is not an important part of that. You know, like oh, yeah. You come out and watch practice. We'll make it available. This one. I assume that one practices at at the stadium right Lincoln, Bill idea. No, but gets sixty five thousand people in there to watch one training, camp practice serve the same purpose of charitable donation. Fifteen days of two thousand people three thousand of practice. I get I get it. But it is evolving. I, I don't know words headed but I think let's take it from when this first start happening when a guy like Dan Schneider, and I and I remember this vaguely in my past I may get this wrong. But here's what I remember he bought the Redskins and there was, there's such remember the Redskins. They sold out one hundred ninety thousand games in a row and in old RFK stadium. Remember and you couldn't get it ticket and and everybody in Washington wanted to see the Redskins and they were great. So he was going to take advantage that he bought the team, and he started charging mission prices and open up every preseason practice. Right now, he started charging admission so. What did the eagles and the Dallas Cowboys and the giants do fine? They sit there. They sent scouts down there and watched every practice and filmed up about a ticket. They bought a ticket and filmed them and they lost competitive advantage. I mean these teams were filming their practices. How are you going to get you gonna keep anything secret from your division rivals, when they can come in and film, you, you know, it's crazy. So that now it's kind of swinging back the other way say, listen. If they're doing we're doing it. And now it's you know it's common practice. They got an open practice. You've got somebody there watching, you know it's just the way it works. So now the football, guys and the and the competitive nature of the game, taken back over this way we, let's, let's have some competitive secrets here if we can even through training camp and fans are nice, even when you give away free tickets. But you know we got to we've got to have some things that are off limits as well. Yeah. The value of training camp is I'm sure something that every team thinks about what do we get out of this? Why are we making this effort and they think hard about it and you know there was discussion last week on the bills training camp? Schedule came out, and what are they got eight total eight open practices in Rochester this year for? six eight and people say well what's the point why there is a value there and i i think it's you know in sean mcdermott talk about it with us on the show last week what they get out of it what they're looking to get out of it and yet they're you know as mcdermott said last week i think is quote was we're constantly wayne we're constantly looking at the value of being away being familiar surroundings for a couple of weeks and this year it's what about a week and almost two weeks versus being here the work you get done you get it done and the benefit that comes to marketing and fan support and and season ticket sales i do think that's item it is around the league not just in buffalo around the league that's gone down right teams no longer need to be six weeks at niagara university in july.

"I saw last year. And we try to explain you've got the Champions League. There is a tweak with the style of play. But it is it's tough when you rent Mercedes-Benz was you saw your in the in the building people just kind of sitting on their hands. So you're telling me be patient. We are going to get back to what we need to do is a combination of injuries and just the temperament of the players whose Brad Kuzan say, look, we've got to be better ourselves. Absolutely. I think you know, part of it is there's a little bit of a mentality. I think that's where the fans could really help us because you know, they've been incredible and cheer on the team on lifting. And when we do the Icelandic clap, you can almost feel sort of energy going into the stadium that lifts to the players. And that's why they're so important. So that's what we have in our favor, which is great. We've got this unbelievable passionate fanbase it can really lift up lies. But look it's modern phenomenon where you look back and think everything was rosy last two years. We've sat on this show talking about games against DC night where they part the bus. We just couldn't find ways to school these things happen. When teams come and sit back like Cincinnati did that not no excuse for the performance. But it is a reality teams are gonna do they? So we have to find ways. I do want to ask you about the travel. It's dare Neal's guys. Because again, I'm not going to make excuses were talented enough. You said it our coaching staff is brilliant enough to put things together that we can tactically win these matches. But the schedule has played a role, and I'm not going to deny that. And I want you to talk a little bit about this because the travel involved with playing in Kaka calf. And then getting our MLS season started we've been all over the place. And I just I don't know if guys are tired, Mike, and I have say this in some instances, we believed especially that maybe in the second half guys have looked tired. And I don't know if that's fair unfair. How do you feel now? It is fat is what we've got to do as a league. I mean, if we want to actually be competitive, we're gonna measure ourselves by how we doing conger CAF Champions League, we have to change the the time that we have to prepare because every preseason around the world and every other league you'd have six weeks usually have training before the first game. We have a CVA at the moment we have four and a half weeks before our first game. He's just not long enough. Anyway. You add on top of that. Then you have actually played any league games are going straight into the Champions League. Which is a tough tournament with traveled. Whether it's Costa Rica, Mexico. You know, you could be in, Panama, etc. So they have to try and change that to give the teams the best chance. Otherwise, what you're actually saying is, okay, we'll try and do it with a wing, but we just not really set teams up for success or what we might have to do in future years. We're fortunate after qualifies to say, actually, we go to approach this differently. We cannot actually put our eggs into both baskets. We're going to have to pick one over the other Toronto Toronto gets all the way a game away. Unfortunately, the derailment MLS, exactly. I might actually did do that classic. We'll focus on the wall didn't quite pay off. And then he undermine them in the analyst. So it is a difficult situation for all teams. That's not an excuse. But it's something where I think we've certainly learned from this year and in the future, we're going to be much better equipped. We said like you DC we talked about crawling just bad luck in years past the old RFK stadium. And all that. Then of course, you said that defensive posture. I have to also understand their better this year. They might not have the depth that we have. But they built off last year. Second after the playoffs. You had a great. I mean, they got a good drawer up in Janke stadium as well. As the second game. I mean, they're a good team. And that's the reality as well. As wearing a league where we don't have any divine right to be the champions. It was hard work. It was a lot of effort, and we have to work harder to do it next year. But other teams are trying to catch us. And you know, it's the toughest year as you all know in sports when title one time is defending it is the hardest thing. And there's a reason why it's very rarely happened in the past. But you know, we want to be a team that does not dare Neal's. Brought to you by errands, guys. Perfect for your budget and style with top name brands if we score four goals tomorrow. You will do what if we get through? I will. Yeah. I'll. If we scored four goals tomorrow flush their heels, you will do shave your head. The fountains in centennial Olympic power, right? There you go get fair enough. There you go heels does. Hey, I'm not counting our guys out. I just I can't. But I know there's some people who are like listen the way that we've played it doesn't feel good. Let's go down a Mercedes and see what happens tomorrow, Mike, and I'll be in the gold getting you guys ready and talking a lot of sports in free agency. And all that, Dan, thanks for stopping by quick shout out to the the fo the supporters Davis, I can retire now that I've actually been. Not. You didn't see the giants. Go holding pages on the book.

"They don't have a ring they've been to the finals a couple of times, they don't have a championship. But now they're not even in that equation. They're totally in a rebuild and reload mode. And speaking of that, can we not leave this segment without talking about this trade that was bungled and then revived for Trevor Reza that happened late last night. Did you guys know wizards Memphis was this sows a three team trade? Yeah. Memphis, Washington in Phoenix. Trevor we Trevor reason was going to go to Washington. Memphis was going to give a player named Brooks to Phoenix the grizzlies thought they were giving up marshawn Brooks Phoenix thought they were given getting Dillon Brooks and neither team. Apparently, according go to ESPN dot com and look up the timeline of this trait. It's it's borderline hilarious. Apparently, the wizard the wizards were talking with the the sons about this and maybe talking about the grizzlies about this, but the grizzly grizzlies and the sons never talked about this early on. So that's why there was some miscommunication. The deal was actually supposed to take place last night and it fell apart. They said after a couple of hours after they were announcing it or maybe even within an hour that it was dead because of this whole mix up and by the way, someone asked. Hey, if you're Washington could you involve Scott Brooks in the trade, if they're looking for some type of Brooks Scott Brooks out of there. But apparently they've they've hash things out. And the trade is apparently going to go through Trevor REEs to Washington Kelly Oubre way and Austin rivers, go to Phoenix. And I'm trying to see who's going to Memphis in this whole deal. But it was it was comical, and that's kind of what the Suns are right now. They're kind of the version of the Arizona. Cardinals about ten fifteen years ago where they couldn't get anything. Right. That's kind of what the Suns are right now. And they've had a lot of success. So this certainly is not helping their cause I was looking online today. And this is remember a Saturday night in downtown Phoenix Stevie T you've seen that building talking stick resort arena. I've seen it. I've been in it from the outside. It looks great. There's palm trees I mean, you really feel like you're in the middle of the desert in this away. Awasthi downtown Phoenix. It would draw me in. So I think they've got a good situation already but seven dollars you can get into night for a Saturday night NBA game, seven bucks timber wolves and sons. So the Suns are sinking right now in the west clearly it opened in nineteen ninety two the building did. So that that's getting up there. We're we're closing in on thirty years old and a few years and we've brought this up before. For and it gets into local venues as well. Excellent energy center's been open going on twenty years. Now think about that. And this is the eighteenth season. They put they put a chunk of money into target center. How long will that last? We know what we went through at the Metrodome. I mean, ten years in it was kind of like this is not what we had hoped. It would be finally got replaced, but what is the shelf life? I have a story here that I that I read on deadspin earlier today. And and just a reminder deadspin is R rated language wise their articles there's a lot of good stuff in there. But the headline I won't give you the whole thing because it is an IRA did headline as well. But it it gets into the fact that Daniel Snyder is trying to get control of the land where the old RFK stadium. The old home of the Washington football team. He wants auto Landover Maryland and FedEx field that's antiquated that doesn't fit their needs anymore. It's too big. There's problems with that that building's what twenty years old? Yeah. So we're getting to a point. And I don't think Daniel Snyder is going to build this thing on his own. I think he's gonna want had publicly controlled land. He's gonna want development rights. I mean, we're starting to see the shelf life of these facilities. I'm not saying that's true with the ex. We don't know how much more or how many years we're going to get out of target center. But. Twenty years old..
"old rfk stadium" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt
"Six, five, six, five, four. I'll answer questions. Patrick thinking of the right there, you know, tagging, Kirk cousins, multiple years in a row and what that does to their business over all. And you know the fan base, you see this, you know the their first time opener, their fifty thousand people there as a life on Redskin fan. I'm thirty years old. I've felt more apathetic about fifteen than I have ever and I think it's because of the three years of uncertainty of tags. And you know, I think it's something that probably negatively impacted the franchise in terms of their fan base and by something that hasn't really been seen the NFL. I just wonder if other people try to go through it with their player, you know, would that negatively impact their actual overall business and go your work? So keep up. Keep it up. Great question and listen, you're speaking to the choir here. I was born and raised in Washington. DC went to games from an early age has Redskin fan all the old RFK stadium before the one they're now playing in Landover. I'm actually going this weekend to see my old Packers play the Redskins down there. So huge fan growing up. I lost that phantom along the way. It's interesting with cousins because what they've done is really made him the most leverage player in recent memory in sports in the sport of football because they gave him these offers before the franchise tag that weren't really offers. They knew Bruce sounds of former agent. He knew those were not deals that Kirk cousins was gonna take any didn't take him. So they rented him for two years. Forty, four million dollars twenty. The first year twenty four. The second year was a good deal for them. Well, they didn't have to sock in sixty million guarantees, but probably not because they were just treading water. Kirk cousins was a player. They liked a lot of player. They didn't love. So what they did was make these kind of offers, maybe we can get him. Take it rather than offers that, you know, they know he would take. I think it set them back because again, they're playing with lame duck situations at the most important position. Now they've really shown their hand. They let cousins go get Alex Smith. They think they're more advantaged position with Alex Smith than they were with Kirk cousins. You know, I don't know. They had so many empty seats against the colts. I don't think they'll have a lefty seats against the Packers such draw rarely come to Washington, but this is so unique to me. I grew up where you couldn't get near Redskins game. It was the ticket in town at galvanized an area that you know me now more than ever needs cow nizing so much fuller vacation, so much division the Redskins were and it sounds like they no longer Aric lease according to Patrick these sport league team. The important thing in sports in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area. It's funny as sad that that has changed. The cousins thing didn't help. Cousins was a lame duck. It seemed like the whole time they liked him. They didn't love him. And what was so Arana is they pick Robert Griffin to be the future of the franchise, and then they sorta throwaway pick in the fourth round. For cousins, cousins became the quarterback. Griffin was moved out. We all know that how that win. So hope that answers your question. Patrick, I feel your pain former Redskin fan, grew up die hard, and that has since changed. Let's go to Scott. I Andrew. My name is Scott quick question on the NFL scheduling. Do you ever foresee them scheduling games, fifteen to twenty minutes apart, much like March madness or games may start on the east coast like eleven AM. Second game, eleven twenty seven forty cetera. Maybe to increase your ship engagement, etcetera. P. think there could be some profits her teams. Thanks, Andrew, take their things. Got a great question. I think would what we're sort of stuck with at least now, and I don't know if it's going to change is kind of your fathers or even your grandfather's NFL in terms of scheduling in terms of the way the games are broadcast. I think that's got to change. I think it has to change first of all in terms of the time, the broadcast listen, I'm an older guy, and I still have trouble watching these games because of all the stoppages. It shouldn't take three plus hours to have an eleven minutes of action product. I think. Consumers are going to demand that I think that'd be shorter games. I think it's means more split-screen advertising, less savages, less breaks somehow they're able to do with revenues in soccer. I don't know why they can't do it in football, but that's just where we are. You bring up an interesting point about the staggered schedule to me. I think there's some reason which I'm really not sure of why all the games start at the same time, either one o'clock for lock or the night games to me, you would have more fan engagement with staggered times. For instance, we're in when I was in Green Bay. We started our early games at twelve when these coast, of course, that would be one why not start at one in Green Bay, there would be two on the east coast. So what and now you all these fantastic finishes coming the same time between four and four fifteen for twenty one have been tastic finish at four one, five, one, six, three at seven. And you know that to me is seems to be more fan engagement rather than. In less. Of course, the key defending gauge -ment now with legalized sports betting is just that there's gonna be more gambling. Who knows what these in game apps are going allow for. But that is really something to look at when you talk about what's going on. So I agree with you. I think it's a great question. I think staggered times make sense, and maybe with these new contract coming up in twenty twenty one which will include Amazon, which will include Twitter, which will include at least in the bidding process. Facebook, Google Yahoo had cetera will have more, I guess, less your father's NFL little more modern millennial, and that may include staggered time, Scott. Thanks for the question.

"old rfk stadium" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"First segment with Dennis to see a lineman go sideline to sideline when deforest Buckner crushed Lou Gehrig blood gave him the business your mouth to start watering. When that happened. How cool is that? Yeah. And that just kinda shows the force, you know, he he's he's got a high motor. And you know, he he gets that thing rolling. And you know, he he looked he the geared and all you saw was the bottom blunt. I mean, he flipped him over, and you know. He he's a big guy. You know, the force is what six seven three hundred and fifteen pounds. And that's a lot of man, you know, hitting you. And it was it was a great hit. But you know, I've seen not play with a guy named Michael Carter. And he was the fat guy sideline the sidelines. And once he once you get all that stuff going forward and that momentum and the collision I mean once you what you connect with somebody. You know, it's gonna be a good head. But know that was that was good. And it was I think, you know, it was kind of a tone that the defense should came out really early. And I think they did it no set the tone for that football game. And then the fourth quarter just gonna lose. It all was just it was it was hard to kind of watch. And I was sitting there in the studio watching it. And I couldn't believe what I was seeing. But you know, somehow in some way, they pulled out the w and it was it was good. And it almost felt like last week. You know, it was kind of like, you know, maybe you know, it was it was there to win and they could have won. And it felt better to is bad. But yesterday, it was it was seems like it was kinda hard to take that win. It was a. Yeah. You know, w but dang it. It was so many things that it shouldn't have been a w but they came out with at the end of the day that's kind of bad yesterday. You did have a few guys intimate that last week seemed like a win in a loss in this week seemed like a loss in in a win. And obviously the way it went down where Matthew Stafford was able to through the past get to get the lines back into it. The Niners were able to from my point of view. Anyway, get some pressure on Stafford manifested in in a couple of sex to force butter was was a part of that. And then you didn't see it as much in the second half is my read on that accurate. And if so why do you think the pass rush estimates? It wasn't the first. Yeah, you're exactly right in the second half. There was pressure. But when you're dealing with a quarterback that he's a ten year vet and he's gonna he understands where the lanes are to get vision down the field and make a play down the field. So there was brush up the field, but the defensive line they weren't disciplined in their rush late kind of like a kick off or kickoff return. You have rush lane. And once one of those lanes open is when you get the big games on the kickoff for our kickoff returner pipe, and it was the same thing in the second half. They had to rush they were not disciplined into rush lane. So Stafford was able to step up those lane with his vision and throw the ball down the field. And you know, with the way the secondary plant in the second half, especially the fourth quarter. It became kind of throwing catch. Yeah. So you know, he was running around in the second half. He's making plays as we say with his leg with his arms. But you know, the secondary wasn't much of I'm there was only four rushing. You couldn't blitz because you know, there's so many bussey coverage is so many guys. Right free. So you had to hope to get the rush from the front four and they were getting up to CEO, but they just were not splitting their lanes. And he's able to make way down the field, you know, dipping off into the into the into the passing lanes Dennis I posited, the theory that Matt Patricia no-one Garoppolo bit from New England and one marquees good one was out in PETA Scott banged up in the middle of the game. Just kind of said, let's press and plays single coverage. And then rush the passer because Shanahan Garoppolo dice sub zones. I'd I Detroit when told away from zone played man and it really bothered the Niners. Garoppolo didn't wanna throw any pick. So he was holding onto the ball for a long period of time. I mean is that something teams will start doing it? So marquees Goodwin or someone who can stretch the field gets back in the lineup. Yeah. I mean, I think you gotta remember Patricia was that was that New England. And would when when Jimmy was in New England he played against cow Shanahan and a Super Bowl. So, you know, I'm sure he had some things in mind schemes in my, and, you know, you're exactly right. I mean, what was going on these trailblazers that was you know, let let that offense of line getting their protection and then bring some linebacker or a outside linebacker off by late. There were a couple of delayed blitzes where you could see the press linebacker. We're just waiting waiting a whole would open up massive and indeed would shoot right through writing. Garoppolo state. I won't make you do this Dennis. I won't make rod do this. I will do the cheap shot the trail. Blitz was so long that ally herald got a sack. He got. I'm sure Tina Turner recognize that you like got on his hands in need. Looked up to his God. Instead. Thank you. About it was that trail blitz delay blitz. And just wait. Wait, wait. They getting their pass pro, you know, if it's going to be a MAC pro that back or we're going to go out, and then you go, and you know, it was a good game plan in. Now, you know, someone's got a blueprint, and I guarantee you every coordinators, and we're watching that film. And and how they got that offense especially Jimmy Garoppolo kind of uneasy. But there were there were times in the game. If you watch it looked like Jimmy Garoppolo was sitting just flat footed. Yup. I mean, he just wasn't getting rid of the ball. It was he was just sitting flat-footed maybe waiting for a route to open up or down the field or something. And boom there was that. There was that that trail blitz right in his face. And then you can do about it. But there was a lot of times we just kind of sitting flat footed to see Jimmy Garoppolo not be comfortable in the pocket for whatever reason his own doing or the work of Patricia and that lines defense. It was just plain weird to see I do and we're. Talking to Dennis Brown. Former defensive land is suitable winter pre and post game coverage here on kmby are six eighty for all things. Niners tennis. Joining us, courtesy guests line. I do want to tell you Dennis. And this is probably going to sadden you that your thought that maybe what Patricia Matt Patricia did with headlines defense kind of giving some answers to defenses defensive coordinator Anders we'll see here in the not too distant future. Another person. I know said that exact same thing to me on your few shorts minute minutes ago, and his name was Bob, FitzGerald, you and Bob saw that thing exactly the same way. And I just want to say to you. I'm sorry. Dennis Dennis that makes me feel good. And you look bad. So. I was waiting for this great great minds, think alike. Hey, dennis. When you look at Solomon Thomas, and Eric Armstead. You know, is that Rodney our kind of of the belief that the D line is going to set the tone a little bit because they've used draft picks there, and it got younger guys. And I saw DJ Jones plan. I saw Mitchell plan. I saw Armstead Solomon as kind of a worker bee who's in there like by large. I was pretty pleased with the defensive line. But, but I don't know it like, you know, it I mean, give me an idea on on a few dudes that are jumping out at you. In terms of how the Niner D line is planned. I look at it DJ Jones. I mean, he's a guy. I mean, you know, we talked about them in preseason young cat, but he's just a plug in the middle. When Ronald Blair. He comes in. Yeah. That's a good word Sheldon day was in there. But what happens like we talked about? You know, if you start running, you know, early in the game kind of a regiment kinda getting guys in there. Getting divorced to blow getting Eric Armstead a blow and then a fourth quarter. When you've got fresh legs. You got those big old nasty fat off into Lyman that have been working all day, and they're tired, and you get a deforest Buckner who's had a couple snaps off. I mean that is kind of what you're doing. But you need to have depth in depth in that defensive line where a guy can still come and play at a very high level. Indeed, deep DJ Jones has done a really good job is when when he's called on to get in there. Plug up the middle take on that double team and give these guys a blow. And then also our Ronald Blair on nickle package. He comes in there and Sheldon day. So they've got a good group of guys as far as defensive lineman, go and Solomon guy. I think people are kind of you know wins. This gonna happen. For him. I still believe that he should be more of an inside guy. I think it should be pass rushing on maybe a nickel over guard or over a center. I think in base defense. I think he can be that guy who lines up in that slant stance like a B Y did Bryan Young did and just take that gap right away to plug up that hole. And I think Eric Armstead. He put in some work yesterday. I think he's a guy who's got. It's gonna take a lot of reps. You know, he's a basketball guy, the kinda guy, and they want him to be more physical. And and you learn to be physical. You don't just doesn't just come with you. You have to have more reps and do the reps the game has a slow down. So I think you know, I think that defensive line they have the ability to be real special Dennis. I I like football nerd not with Humana. And and talking about a does get talked about the trenches the defensive line, and obviously you have an expert's point of view playing neck, but I also like to do it at least once a talk. I like it when you name. Name drop the old school D lineman. Michael carter. I I heard the flex their guard. But see, you do, you know, the position you played with those guys, you know, those guys I like it when you drop the names, and here's a here's the thing. Dennis let people talk about the salary cap coming into play when they had Montana young and Bono, right? Here's here's my. Here's my counterbalance when they had Jim Burt Fred Smith and Michael Carter. I mean Eddie was stacking up tackles like cordwood, man. Do you understand what the defense of lying room was like what's Merlin, Jim Burt? And Michael Carter, dude. In that ruin that let me tell you right now what any faith tough guys in there. I can tell you that they were compete there were competing at that time. Get on the football field. You walked in the room, you could cut the tension with a knife. I mean, those guys they set in opposite sides of the room, and they didn't talk to each other. And. Yeah. I was a young dude. I was just like, okay. These are all pro bowlers. You know, some hall of famers in air. We've been playing ten years, you know, they all want to get on the field. They're all competitive, and they're all in the same position. And it was intense, man. But it made it made us all play at a at a at a holy a totally different level. Because these guys are like listen when I'm in the game, Kate nothing go along. I mean, there's not one place. You cannot miss because I'm trying to get on the field when I'm on the field. I want a hundred percent from everybody. So. Yeah, you know, Prates rarely stuff. Forget about ready was awesome. We should bring in buffalo wings every Friday for now Rodman on these sidelines. And and I I didn't I'd have to check all your years. But give fans idea of playing in Arrowhead, how crazy that is for for just snap counts or any. I mean, losing your mind because the noise as at physical quality. But what do you think of that building? It reminds me of a Seattle Seahawks. Now, the twelfth men they have in the way this stadium in the way. It's loud up in Seattle. I mean, and and it's and it's equal to kind of a college football game. I don't know if the stands are made out of metal. But you know, when I was in the league, there's two places I've played they got crazy law. That was Washington the old RFK stadium, and Arrowhead, and it's like a college atmosphere. Those folks love their chiefs. And you know, what they're doing a lot the first two weeks or that quarterbacks. I mean, he's he's out of this world, you know, ten touchdowns. I mean, he is he was crazy, but it's a stadium, and it's gonna get loud. And you know, that offense line is gonna I'm sure all week they're gonna they're gonna work on the silent count. But it gets loud in that place. You've done a lot of games there. I mean, it gets crazy allows join the NFL it's eighty thousand people you don't they're all sitting in seats because there are little to basically, no luxury boxes at Arrowhead. It was built in. One thousand nine hundred seventies in the shape of the stadium holds the sound in. I've been to a lot of the new places and all the places that aren't around anymore. Arrowheads the loudest showing the NFL is so now, I'm among friends. So I gotta tell you this era ahead story. They don't I didn't Dennis you get you get a kick out of this because you know, everybody involved, so we're doing we're doing a preseason game in August in Kansas City. Right. And we're doing television so million kina are doing TV, and it is it's like a hundred and seven degrees. So the day before KT, and I say, hey, we are not wearing coat and tie..
"old rfk stadium" Discussed on KLIF 570 AM
"The top three I think I think they're number why they might. Be the number one richest football program, athletics program in the country money's no object money apparently is not but winning is an. Object and they can't seem to find a way. To do it and I don't understand how that's possible to me I look back at when they needed a new coach and you know how every year there's usually like one ace. Coach, that is available and you can get like an urban. Meyer Nick Sabin type yeah damn but. Type that year that they needed a. New coach I thought there. Was nobody like great no guarantee available, and I think that's what? We're seeing now that this is Tom Herman, is that his name yeah I think he's just an average coach I think he's just like when they got Charlie. Strong just an average coach I was, disappointed they didn't get Charlie strong enough time he really was trying to recreate the culture. The gave them three years nothing was happening and. You know you can look back at Nick saban's career, and find that what he took over a team you're number two you saw a difference things started naming urban Meyer things started Ones they get? It done real quick yeah and they can't seem to do it. At the university of Texas I don't understand what is going I wondering they lose to Maryland again which really they shouldn't have they? Were ranked twenty third now they're not even going to be in the top twenty five again this? Is one of the. Biggest schools in. The country the richest. Program in the country and they can't even become one of the top twenty five, so I got to wonder what is. Taking, place. At the university behind the scenes why do people not. Want to go there is here's the, problem you have. Too many mediocre seasons in a row and people start thinking well you, know what I'd rather? Go, play for someplace where I'm going to. Get seen do you think any of it has to, do with that argument. Of now a.. And m. is in the best conference. The SEC do you think they're poaching away. Some players because the SEC. Is perceived to be the better, conference that's a good question I don't know I am just they they wanted to walk this. Week and although, that was kind of. A preseason game it was. Kind of Shero game yeah I bet everybody who's, paying JIMBO Fisher that big. Money is God my whole job was, on the line. But we won that's. All we needed but then they have Alabama on the way they have Clemson next, week number two and number one. On the way. So they're playing they're playing for it all. Here very quickly I think if I'm a college football, player and I'm I think the sexiest league hands down. Is the SEC and when you can live in Texas and just go to tech Sanam and, being the SEC even though, you should know you're never going to win the title as long. As Nick Sabin is? There Yeah Or the that? Division, yeah. Yeah or LSU is? There. Yeah I think it's a no brainer to. Go. There I the only thing, is you, know UT still isn't a cool city for. Kids, yeah Considered a cool place college station. Not. So much I don't have any problem with. BCS, I liked it I lived there. For a, couple years I thought it was a great I know but in. The eyes of. Eighteen, year old yeah think. Austin and sixth. Street, that appeal. Sam yeah but that's all it appeals to I mean I gotta say sixth street. Is is eighteen to nineteen year olds that's about? It well that's, there you go that's your demographic yeah. I know but, I with you the fact. That Texas can ever not win ten games, unacceptably why can Ohio State managed to pull it. Off because they're really it should be UT, in Ohio State they're to me they're comparable except show differences Ohio State actually has a good football program. Whereas. UT. Seems to be mediocre. Year. After year now they've won a couple of. National. Championships but you gotta go nineteen sixty, nine and what two thousand five or two. Thousand And six I, don't remember Charlotte that's an awfully big gap in. Between and and they had one other opportunity, they lost Alabama and I'm I actually think that if Colt McCoy hadn't gotten hurt I think they probably would have won that. I'm with you. On that now since then they can't. Seem, to recruit winner I. Can't remember was there a coach inbetween trestle and urban Meyer was there a slump in their guy couldn't. See that's the thing if you don't. Get the great coach yeah. Right off the bat you go in a slump look at. Michigan even, though they lost this week before they had Jim, Harbaugh they add. That. Brady Hoke or whatever he. Was. A, flop down. Notre, Dame's gonna flop until they got who's not chip Kelly but anyway the guy that got now on. The hot seat but they look okay Harbaugh's on a. Hot seat yeah now Notre Dame yeah but I just I thought the. Year that they were looking for coach at Texas needed a coach there wasn't any great options what they wanted. To, say they, tried, to get our. Brows at the time, and he didn't leave they try to get everybody and their mother to go. To the university. Of Texas, and nobody wanted to go well it's true Nick Sabin Mom said she did. Receive a phone call to? Come coach the Longhorn well I don't know. What their problem is I don't know why they keep coming up short like. That it just. Doesn't make sense and, I would, like to know? If it's because of maybe the alumni digits people. Behind the scenes. Who keep screwing it up maybe nothing. More, annoying than people who. Interfere behind the scenes coach will tell you did you ever see the movie Friday night lights movie back. In two thousand yeah couple of scenes. In there with the alumni. Or trying to manipulate the coach can you imagine what that's. Like when, there's now millions of dollars at stake and now, it's a university. And. You're the poor sap who's. Got. A, coach deal. With, these idiots over here who probably are passing out cash envelopes to people and that's going to cost. You everything if they get caught you can't control all. Of that but you're going to be the guy who gets blamed for. It I remember Phil Knight the founder of Nike there was rumor that not only in his in his suite. Could, he hear. The coaches Playcalling but there is? Also. Rumor that he got to call one play a game really for org for. Oregon I had how insane is that if that is true I wouldn't surprise, I had a gentleman in church years ago Fred Pruitt Fred was massively big man and he played for bear Bryant at Alabama and he told me the story, said when they were recruiting me out. Of high school and, this is in the sixties there, recruiting high school he said bear Brian came into my living room. And on the coffee table he laid out. Ten one hundred dollar bills and said there's plenty more where. That came from it yeah Van last. Year Have you people know. What that's, like so yeah that's the way. They do it I know they claim that. Doesn't happen anymore I I'm a little soft, and believing that, but you know, maybe it doesn't but, whatever it takes I can't figure out why UT can at least cheat their way to. A competitive team there's nobody. At that state I felt, bad for Maryland their play at the, old RFK stadium I believe was, that down now I. Think it is I drove by that by that I drove by that a number of times I. Was in Washington, I kept thinking? Where's the handle so. You, can flush yeah because it just the place was a toilet, is a toilet and I noticed. Nobody was there and that's obviously. That's a big they're playing a huge name in. College football yet nobody was. There still one it's, a huge name but not have. Really team names don't necessarily add up to that much Laura ingram Apologizing apologize we don't say. Something incorrect when the other side is trying to racial is something they should issue. The apology I would demand that Andrew gillum and all. These people they should apologize Laura Ingram until two on news..

Then they can't seem to recruit winter I can't remember was, there a coach inbetween trestle an urban Meyer was there a slump in their guy couldn't but see that's. The thing if you don't get the.
