"Me say this, clearly, clearly. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I love, stop. If we ever do a worse promo part three bracket, remind me to put this on. We had like two or three from just this episode. Remember how I usually go award, double award. I'm just gonna spoil it. Double award winner. Then we have Becky versus Asuka, money in the bank qualifying match. Asuka beats Becky clean with a kick to the head. Kick. And Becky cries on the floor to end raw. Kick punch and kick to win with Becky crying. Does like a Rollins cry? How does a very family like? So Becky will get in the last chance match, I'm sure. And then win the fucking thing. Probably. You know? It's all they have is her. They can give it to Alexa who we'd love to see happen again. They can give it to Liv, who we'd love to see have anything. Give it to Liv. You don't think Liv is good enough to win the title on her own, then let her beat the fuck out of someone who's already gotten beat the fuck out of. And win the title. Right. Who has it won the title yet? Her. Just wait. Lacey Evans because she just got there, but she had a title yet? Does she have the SmackDown title? No. No. But she's still brand new. Yeah. Like, come on, lives the only one who's been there that hasn't had the title. No 24/7 title stuff, but do drop one the 24/7 title on main event. Shut up. Yeah. Shut up. No, please shut up. Wow. Stop talking about it. Maybe it wasn't can. Probably not canon. It's main event. No, our truth just comes out. None of it was canon. Yeah. It was all a dream. Right. Thank you. There you go. All right, let's get to awards. Buttigieg for worst dressed. I had Becky. What the fuck is she wearing? I had chunky. It just didn't close. Not wrestling gear or anything. Best drafts.

Fear, veer. I guess. If you want, then that should have been like, I don't know, should we? What I did to the Mysterio. The Spider-Man villain? I can't stop. Be you fucking. I can't stop talking. This promo was supposed to be 5 minutes. I can't stop. Stop, Vince, yelled into Kevin Patrick's ear. Stop talking. We won't stop. I can't stop. I won't stop. Miley Cyrus. Best acting. Oh, that's easy. Kevin Owens, of course. Where's comment? I had all of carnage. I have I can't stop. One of those has to be added to the soundboard. Oh, dude. I love card. And then we have Brock Lesnar beats up ten security guys. I love garnet. Or if just Lashley or anybody cuts a stupid promo, I can't stop. Best comment always just saying Nebraska and then fooled and then Friends Canadian. Yeah, I had him saying I saw T. Rex fly helicopter. That's great, yeah. Worst match. I had real omos because me too. I hate that omos pin riddle clean. Yeah, fuck you. At least have fucking MVP hit him over the head with the cane or something. Yeah. Clean. Right. Fuck off. I don't care that he's 7 four. He sucks. He's the fucking worst, man. Super slo-mo. I don't know. Last laugh. All the garments, sure, sure. Best match. Brutal range real range. I mean, Ciampa, AJ was good, but riddle rains was bigger. Yeah. We're smooth. Vince coming out, not saying anything, saying nothing. That's why worst moves. I live in Alexa's roly poly. It's just dumb. It went on forever. And then the ref had to stop. He's like, shoulders are up. Shoulders are so shoulders are out. I'm so bad. Best move. I don't know, I didn't really have anything. I had a Roman doing Orton's table spot, like he dropped riddle. And then he looked into the camera and he was like, what are you at Randy? I'll go with that. Worst moment or segment? Oh, God. I mean, veer triple winner? Yeah? I actually have Vince McMahon coming out. Oh, sure, sure, sure. And then best moment, Vince McMahon. It was the best and worst thing I've ever seen. It really really was. I was laughing the entire time. It was horrible because he was like, we're so Vince coming out on raw. Best moment, SmackDown, but come on, SmackDown. Right. But that one was better. Shorter. I thought fucking leave it. Amazing. They're gonna make you. What is he gonna do on SmackDown? This Friday. Can they make it? I just want everyone to acknowledge Roman Reigns. Just like I acknowledge him, right? And I signed an NDA because I sucked Romans nuts. I don't think he's allowed more than 51% of the stock to go out to anyone. No. So I don't care if he's not guilty of a crime? No. Well, some crimes it is illegal to cheat on your wife. In some states. But there's no penalty for it. No. So I mean, he can just be like, yeah, I don't care. The stock's plummeting, I don't care. Unless we find out in the end, we find out he did something to her. As of right now, we don't know, right? Yeah. Once we find out, you know, but I mean, treating her as a sex toy, like giving her, I don't know. We need to hear more details on that, because giving her what woman would just be given and be like, yeah, that's fine. And let's fence, it's like, look, I double just salary, where you just go suck as thick. You know what I mean? And she's like, fuck. Yeah. So with that, that's harassment. Well, that's it. I mean, he basically he gave her a pay raise to fuck him. I know. And that's company money. That's shareholder money. Yeah, but it's hard to disprove that she didn't deserve it from her job if her job was done well. Let's look at the timeline. You relate for work. You know. You were out of town when Vince was out of town. You didn't get that time off. Yeah, I know. All right, on to breaking news. So mor Vince McMahon stuff, Vince McMahon and former XFL commissioner Oliver luck recently agreed to terms on a settlement following a two year legal battle. Luck filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against Vince after the XFL stopped play and fired everyone due to COVID. I mean, come on. There's nothing to do. He was paying all of her luck so much money. It was ridiculous. I think 20 million, I mean, it's ridiculous. What? His contract was insane. For the XFL. What? Yeah. Like, good Elle makes 35, and that's way too much. Right. It's ridiculous. He runs a zillion dollar company, XFL was never. It's like while you're Andrew Luck's dad. All right. Do you know about football? Yeah. Well, he played in the NFL. Oliver luck didn't. Yeah. He did? Yeah. Oh, really? Yeah. Was he a quarterback? I think so. In the backup? He wasn't good. And in the 80s? Oh, yeah. Oliver luck. Either he played the NFL or he was really good in college. Yeah, yeah, he played, oh, the oilers, Jesus. Yeah. I mean, I don't know if he played plays. Yeah..

"Would you take that job right now? I'll be for $3 million. I'll take pretty much any job. So we kind of close to it by I don't know what that number is or who wants to put their legacy up for a job that may dissolve away within 15 months. Yeah, unwinding it is honestly when you think about the structure of it is one of the big things they're going to have to do. Maybe someone like Oliver luck who's worked in a lot of college conference offices. He's worked for the NCAA. I think he was the number two there under M word a couple of years ago and obviously has a lot of experience. Maybe it's someone like that, but right now the conference commissioners are going to have all the power. They're going to reform basically everything. If you saw those reports earlier today. So I think it's going to be a lot of change. I think the next NCA, there can be a lot of good done, frankly, with facilitating how things are done. I don't think you can really do anything as far as NI on the transfer portal. As far as kind of putting the toothpaste back in the tube, so to speak, I think that's done. But I think there can be some facilitation here where everyone figures out a path forward for the future of the sport. The women's basketball tournament needs to be broken up from the men's basketball tournaments so they can get more revenue. There's a handful of things that can be positive and done in the short term. But I honestly think that giving college football teams more power, rather than legislate themselves, that's the path forward, and that's the only way the next person can have any success is understanding the limits of the NCAA. It's not coming back like it was, so understand where it's going. Yeah, it just understand right. You're no longer able to smoke cigarettes on airplanes. Well, guess what? We're not going back to that life. And we're probably not going back to the NIL transfer portal days pre COVID related. Kevin Clark, joining us right now, and then you do some great stuff with slow news day. And then, you know, you write a lot for NFL world. And of course, we're on the precipice of a really intriguing draft. What storyline, specifically maybe from the SEC, argued the most intrigued about coming up over the next two nights? That's a great question. I'm intrigued to see how the league values this Georgia defense because I think Peter in ten years we're going to be looking, you know, those quote cards on Twitter where they say I can't believe all of these guys were in one place. I think you're going to see some of that with Georgia. You know, in ten years. And I think there could be a bunch of first round picks and people have said in a Kobe dean is sliding down those boards. I hope not because he can play. And so I think you're going to see that. I think the respect of the type of athleticism that Georgia had and that Kirby smart put together is really incredible. And I think what's interesting is that there was a tweet last year from Ian rapport at the NFL network and he said, man, the 2022 draft, everybody's really valued when those guys. And of course, it comes around and people don't really like this draft. The NFL is not excited about it. So you're gonna get a lot of high ceiling athleticism guys who go off in the first round. Who better right now than Georgia? Who's more pro ready, by the way, than some of these Al Alabama guys. Evan Neal, it would be a great example of that. Somebody coming off the board early. So the SEC is still the tiebreaker if a guy's the SEC versus ACC or some of these other conferences. The NFL is still going to value that. So I think in a weird draft, I default SEC because they're going to be the most pro ready. They're going to be the most athletic. We know how this works now when you look at the recruiting patterns to playoff games. I mean, there is such a huge separation that I think this is going to be a pretty typical draft which means pretty typical SEC domination. I'm glad you said it because if I said it, it will be quote unquote to media bias. But for the fact that you haven't said it. I went to Miami. I went to Miami and I'm still, I have an inferiority complex about the ACC. It's SEC all day. I talked to NFL scouts constantly. I get it. With that being said though, I think everything changes in the world. And although for the longest time, we've kind of gone through this, hey, it's SEC versus ACC Big Ten and whatnot. Do you think we're going to get closer with this transformation policy to where we almost see kind of a football federation to where there's 30 to 50 teams in a bunch of different conferences that all get together in some point and say, you know what? Florida state, you want to play by these rules, boom. You're going to play these teams. Clemson the same way, whereas maybe Cal Berkeley may not say, listen, we're not going to fund our program that same way. Yeah. It's a great question. So over the weekend, Jack swarbrook gave an interview with the idea in order to him. He gave an interview..

"Yeah we we need to be done with this. It's ridiculous you know. When when brass schools like nebraska left region. West virginia laugh. Going further back. never win. Virginia tech and miami Used to be in the big east and you know. Once that started the crack at everything started the get kind of wacky. And so i'm with you. We we need to get through this. Whatever wherever we're going i have no idea where we're headed but wherever we're headed hopefully within a couple two to three years it's done right and then i wouldn't be shocked. You imagine them pulling out of the ncwa. If feels like that was like we're going to go do their own thing. We'll see it'll is kind of a fake committee. It's just like people that have managed to seize power for a certain amount of time and everybody else agrees yeah will operate under the as guidelines if it means that we can keep making money and playing sports against each other but in reality. There's no real loyalty there. Yeah and also check right. I think the rule book that they have and when those rules were written many of them don't apply to what's happening in twenty twenty one so either blow the nc double a. Up and start over or you or you pull out like like like what cornell colgate or doing shouldn't apply to what alabama and wisconsin and ohio state are going it. It's just a very different model. Today i worst. Were you know year decades and decades ago. It should honestly just be football. It should football should should just pull out the can stay for all the other sports because that's really what what boils down to is. You're treating football like every other sport. I'm it's not even like comparable. I love college basketball. I eat up college. Yeah they're not comparable like in terms of moneymaker so ball is is driving everything here. That's why you see the realignment so just separate football from everything else. It's not the same and they shouldn't be joining us. I'm like you guys like college basketball for me man. I used to be able to watch a big monday. I used to be able to. I'm a little older you guys. But when georgetown used to play syracuse or kansas used to play oklahoma. Those were games. It didn't matter about march madness or it was just. It was a great scene create atmosphere. It's just a great game. We were talking about earlier with football. And i'm not saying those games still don't exist but man i used to know players that played all over the country. I knew their names. I i can tell you their strengths and weaknesses. Just just by being a fan. I don't know anybody hardly any more in college basketball. Like they're not there long enough. They're there for a semester and they're gone and so i think it's really been struggling lately and to your point. College football generates i think. Eighty five percent of the revenue compared to fifteen percent for college basketball. Which is just mind boggling. The thing yeah so so. Give me some names. Who do you think would make a good college football commissioner. Because i think like oliver luck would probably make a pretty good one right. Yeah i mean the name that jumps out to me. Initially is two guys greg. Sankey is the most powerful man right now and probably did the best job. He's the commissioner the sec. Probably the best job of leadership through the global pandemic. He would be the first name that would probably service. That would be a likely candidate. The next would be jim delany. Who was at the big fan and retired Jeff ac- about his health and how he's feeling and what he's interested in doing but he's a very powerful assertive personality and a guy that at the very least should be a consultant That you wanna talk to and then an outlier to me would be. Gene smith The athletic director at ohio state. Who has been around and done a lot of things. He went to notre dame He's been all over the country in different leadership roles. He would definitely be a name. That i think. Papa notre dame do they notre dame honestly just be the only team that stays in the nc double a. Then they get to claim into championships. Moving forward you guys aren't big notre dame guys Not not so much i like. I like making fun of notre dame. Notre dame's when they're both the cathedral and the both. Yeah especially the cathedral when they're relevant enough to be disappointing. That's when i that's exactly. Yeah i'm in the camp of notre dame is. It's always better when they're in the conversation. I love traditional powerhouses conversation. I don't want them to win it all because fun watching the disappointment but i do want them to be good. Yeah i'll say this. Because i'm like you guys. Sometimes i get annoyed because notre dame seems to get the advantage or gets a lot of hype and and they don't necessarily deserve it. But brian kelly in the last couple years. It doesn't feel just a little different when notre dame takes field right now. It started for me when they went to athens like our say was three years ago. And i'm thinking okay notre dame now we're gonna see what's up. They battled their asses off on the road at georgia against a good georgia team and at looked athletic. I mean they looked really good in that game. And that's what it just felt like Because i did the miami notre dame game about four years ago and it was a bloodbath. I mean they got blown out down at miami but a last two or three. I don't know i just feel like. He's recruiting a different level. And i think they're just. They found their niche on how to recruit. We don't need to try to be alabama high state. We're going to recruit tight ends. We're gonna recruit like wisconsin. We're gonna get good linemen. We're going to get good running backs and a smart quarterback and we can win by doing that. I don't know. I'm i'm kind of high on notre dame these last couple of years. They've been fantastic. The problem that notre dame runs into. And it's not really fair to brian. Kelly because we think of him as like oh like get over the top. Notre dame is compared to alabama ohio state and clemson and those three teams or on a completely different stratosphere. So out like notre dame's have been fantastic. They'd had great seasons. They've had great football teams. They are missing those. I actually think the notre dame just missing that one like super dynamic five star quarterback they can that guy in like a trevor lawrence or to dow will take them over the top because the rest of the roster's kind of that's fair. That's fair. I thought he in book was solid. I mean he was he was he made the most of what he had. He was kind of a winner of gym rat. type again but you're talking about is another. Well you're talking about a guy that could be the first pick overall. That's an elite guy and you're right. They've not had that for for a long time. Speaking of like rosser construction texas and oklahoma obvious. We talked about realignment. Going to the sec. How long do you think it will take them to like. Get up to par with the rest of the sec. In terms of line play. Because that's always to me the big difference when you go from that. Make that. Jump the sec. Where they got you know eight guys. Who can all you know. Run crazy. Forty three hundred pounds and get after the quarterback and all that stuff. So how long do you think it's gonna take for them to get to that level roster wise number one. I totally agree. I think defense align plays is the difference in the elite. Sec teams And the consistency of those teams. I think oklahoma's made strides united think oklahoma lincoln riley. They're always going to recruit offense to always going to be able to score. And i don't think that'll change by going into the sec. They say they're going to have to go to a different level as far as defensive line and and be able to get instead of one or two you can have to find five or six guys that are difference makers. I think they'll be surprised if they don't hit the ground running. That's an impressive brands to me. And they got great leadership. Texas wildcard man. I mean they are kind of the dallas cowboys a college football with the dallas cowboys. You guys tell me you guys know this world better than make if if all the nfl teams were for sale or the cowboys most expensive. Yeah probably last was less than they mattered on the field. I mean you don't even if you were born the last time they matter. This is probably back to the mid nineties. It's a long long time. So troy aikman emmitt smith and michael orange and yet they are still dow scout west. Texas feels the same way to me like texas is is not really been texas since mack brown may be back in nine when they were in the national championship. They had some decent team since then. But it's a pretty good run between you know when they were relevant to now and yet their brand is still as big a deal as it's ever been and naive sark gets thrown into it. Sark left nick sabin. And he's one of the hottest playcallers in the country. And he's going to take that next. Save and blueprint. Along with a little bit of pete carroll mixed into it and take it into austin we can predict we can throw it against the wall. What.

And so they say, And here, Frank, let me see I get here's a statement. Schools within the three conferences believe their like minded that they want to continue to prior to prioritize broad based sports offerings in the at the academic profile of their institutions matters as those graduating athletes. One driving force behind the alliance is a concern that ESPN controls and dictates too much of the sport. So what they've done then this three of this new alliance They just told ESPN to shove it.

Yesterday, Associate commissioner and the league who told me that he he still feels like the big 12 of you will be able to retain their power five status that they'll add a handful of teams. You know, we've kind of walked through the four that I would add, um and and and be able to retain their power five status. I like I like your for that you are considering. But Gosh, I just shocked at how quickly Brian, this has happened. I want no Yeah. I mean in the last It's been just over a month since the story broke at the SEC meetings. About Texas and Oklahoma. And here we are just a month later and get a whole new alliance formed. I would be highly surprised if they could retains power. Five. Would be highly Yeah. Uh, shocked at that, By the way, this is this associate commissioner told me also that the expansion of the college football playoff now Is on hold officially that that probably won't happen. They don't want the sec. They have all the power exactly. So they're they're trying to do get in front of the train coming down the tracks. Mhm.

We go inside the nitty gritty of getting that audio. He'll also have inside the dear district hooves up, bro coming up before After games three in Games four of the NBA Finals. Okay, So we have an unhealthy relationship with spring football around here. You guys know it. I know it. I'm just gonna be transparent about it. You know how in relationships you're kind of supposed to hold your cards close to the vest. You're not supposed to just put them all out on the on the table. Well, in this case, I can't hide this from you. You guys know too much with a history together. The fact is, I want spring football to work that is my North star. I want spring football to work. I love football and I'm nostalgic towards the USFL over the eighties. We fell in love with the Alliance of American football. The A F A couple of years ago that it was taken away from us. And so when the XFL then launched last spring, 2020 We had a Like when your dad remarries. You're like, Uh what, Mom? I like Mom. Where's mom? Not that floozy. That's how we kind of view the XFL that floozy but It's nice to have Spring football, So it's kind of nice to have a female around to hang out with to have dinner with to spend vacations with or whatever. So you know you're not totally anti. Dad's new wife, but you know, it takes a little bit of time to To warm up to So last year. Last spring, 2020. When ESPN fell all over itself tripped all over itself to tell us how great the XFL was. We hear on the Dar We felt a little burned because quite frankly, it was no better than what the alliance brought us the year before, But ESPN was again going to go over top, marketing it because it was their property. They were televising it. But we knew If you know, you know. That Good old fashion. A F game in Orlando Apollos, Memphis Express. Salt Lake Stallion's Arizona hot shots, a game that had a lot of juice. It was a effort. It was fun. It was weird. It was quirky enough, but it was professional enough. It had good fan bases it There was just a lot to like. And the XFL came in. And it was that I want Mom. Now to be fair. The XFL had a commissioner Oliver Luck, who had a lot of Experience in the space and he came in and he wanted to win us over. So he brought us a teddy bear. He brought us chocolates. He was trying to win us over and that did warm the cockles of my heart. I don't know if my heart has cockles. Cockles is a different part of your body. But either way It did warm my insides, and I said, You know, what If Oliver luck is going to go out of his way to do this, that I should give the XFL a chance, and I did. There was some good stuff and they have some good players and since the A F is buried and dead Of course, I'm going to want the XFL to succeed. Now. There's been a Spring Football league this year TSF of the Spring League, or TSL, the Spring League. Got to be honest, I have no idea how it's doing. I have no idea how it went. I don't know who won. I didn't watch one minute of one game and that's on me. I just I had no appetite for it. Now. We get news, though, that the XFL, which had been purchased by the rock a year ago. And Vince. Strict man divested himself of it. The XFL, which was supposed to rebound and return next spring. They're going to take a two year hiatus from 2020 to 2022. It's now gotta wait another year. Going to come back in 2023. The XFL went into bankruptcy after the pandemic cut short its opening season last spring. And I'm talking about last brings in 2020, I guess last spring might have been this past spring. So spring 2020. Then. Perhaps share costs. The XFL started talking to the C F L. The Canadian Football League about a partnership but those apparently have fallen apart. And so The league's official statement is while our discussions with the CFL did not ultimately lead to a collaboration, the effort reinforced our belief and commitment to developing the XFL for international spring football. We look forward to seeing everyone for kickoff in spring 2023. We remain open to finding new ways to work together in the future, the CFL said. Okay, so Because I care a little bit too much about the existence and the health of spring football. I saw the statements saw the story and I had some thoughts. Number one another year to get your finances together, not rushing anything back, putting together the proper sales.

"L Name image likeness. For so many years. So many years. We've had the conversation of these kids should be paid a They're about to be. So why don't you like this? Thursday. July 1st. Was the start. Was the start of college athletes profiting off of their name and endorsements, benefiting from name, image and likeness rights. It went into effect. And people. Some people still freaking out about this. Things will adjust accordingly as they do. I know Right now it's a It's a huge change in its like, what's this mean? What is this? What happens? But I think we've got to be flexible as college fans. Football basketball. It doesn't matter. They're going to be some some gymnasts who make some some coin. There's going to be, you know women who have the opportunity depending on their brand. It's just not football basketball, but the fact is, we have to be able to adjust and be flexible. So, you know, I just think some some of you out there have this idea America. That, you know. Well, these kids are gonna be getting car deals. Yes. What's wrong with that? Mean truth be told they were getting car deals under the table. Now it'll be legal. What's wrong with that? People like it's going to change sports forever. Yeah. What's wrong with that? Things evolve. So you know, I saw this. This from Oliver Luck. Who is a former executive. He was on the playoff committee. He was former a D West Virginia. He's done a lot of different things, and you may know his son. Played quarterback in the NFL. But he was like You know, The fascinating thing is, he said two or three years ago, the endpoint was giving athletes name, image and likeness, right. He says. Now the endpoint is union, unionization, unionization and health care for life. And I kind of looked at them when Wow, he says the goalpost have changed a little bit. And he says, I think because the lost the narrative he's right about that. But you're seeing all of these things pop up. When it comes to Name, image, likeness, and here's the thing. All of these College athletes. They're not all going. You know, There's just this idea like they're all going to become, you know, filthy rich. I don't think that's the case. They're not all going to get Big deals. The quantity of deals in the opportunities will be enormous. But But you're still talking about I don't know. Maybe the top 2%. This is not a lot. By the way you start looking at college athlete. I mean, we're talking about the elite of the elite of the elite. That are really going to have a chance to to to do something, But I will say this and this is where I saw a tweet from Matt line earlier in the week. He was like I want to go back to college, and it kind of made me laugh. Because liner played on some great USC teams. We talked earlier about Reggie Bush and should he get his Heisman back? And they got to reinstate him. The N C double has to reinstate him first, which they should and this should be a no brainer based on the fact that things change. So, you know, But Matt liner was like I want to go back to college and I had to laugh because I was like Matt lighter wouldn't want. He would have earned some coin back in the day. I mean, if you talk to us, see folks again, he probably did earn some coin. But it wasn't Legal, okay? So now when you talk about brands and you talk about social media This is where it gets interesting to me. Because if your star on any college campus pick your school Doesn't matter. Notre Dame Florida Georgia, Texas, USC, Oregon. Pick your school. You're going to have stars on those on those campuses and stars on those teams that it just just because of who they are and where they're headed. With their futures. Okay, whether it's NBA NFL, they're going to make some money. But when you start talking about the marketing of social media This is what's interesting to me. Because I think some of the top influencers and top athletes They could earn upwards of $500,000. Maybe even more. And a lot of that has to do with The social media aspect of things. But you know, here's kind of a breakdown of this and we're talking about in I o u like it. You don't like it? I love it. I love it. Free enterprise. You've got talent. You should be able to make money off your talent was talking to my daughter about this. You know you're bringing in millions billions of dollars. I need a part of that. I should be able to get a cut of that. And for years they haven't You know, So when you talk about an athlete, let's say has or she has 10,000 followers. Okay? Pick your social media, they can get $100 per promoted post on social media. Deal for 10 of those that equals 1000 bucks. That's how you get paid. That's not hard. Any athlete with his or her own T shirt. We need to sell 50 at $20 a piece you know for profit. That used to be against the rules..

"When more as used to be? It wasn't the arena. What was the A F A F American Alliance Football League? Yeah, something there was alliance in their alliance of American football. I think that's the lines of I don't think America will, I think was Alliance of American football. Whatever what it was. It was a they had, like a little quick sip of coffee. In this entire world of Let's pretend you're a football league. I will say though, something that I really did enjoy, though, was the more as in D, a ban through the more as D, a bogus segments where they would pretend to be like Chris Berman and Tom Jackson, and they would give reports Off those games that really no one was watching. But it was a way to kind of in my opinion. They didn't take it this way. Poke fun and have fun with the A. F. And I did not like Oliver luck. And then Oliver Luck. He started to run the XFL before something happened there with him and Vince McMahon, and there's a lawsuit. We had Oliver luck in studio, and I was trying to give Oliver look some advice on how he could get on the good side of D A. And I actually suggested throwing myself into a situation that I would be the sideline reporter when we get the A. M. R as in the booth. Can you imagine if you tuned in To the XFL, and you had D a and more as d, a doing the play by play more as doing the color commentary and then you had me as like Tony Siragusa. On the sidelines. The one timer, as wouldn't be paid the role to be the fat man, I guess on a production do, Mr Goose, you know, that would be I think that would be a man. That'd be great. Yeah. Kenny, Kenny, Albert Darryl the Moose Johnson and had the goose on the sidelines. That was a great broadcast here. That was a whole lot of fun. Well, anyway, the reason why I'm bringing out the A F is because maybe Marash should start doing Canadian Football League reports. I know he does. Canadian bacon. To highlight all the hockey and it's a tremendous segment here on CBS Sports Radio. Not that I am the program director here. But maybe in between Canadian bacon and more as finally admitting that the Yankee season is over, maybe more as can do a little Canadian football updates and Canadian football League updates because we have a big breakthrough. In the Canadian Football League and I mean mega mega mega news. The latest quarterback to sign with the CFL from the go into the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Is a John Elway traffic. I saw this guy playing college a few times and I never get and I get why people like him because he's tall. He has a big arm. But if you actually watch the tape of Paxton Lynch in college Turn on the tape when he played Temple. Temple would kick his tushy. And this guy was a first round pick, and that's nothing against my alma mater. I'm wearing a temple Owls polo shirt today. Temple has produced a lot of good NFL players. I have a lot of players on rosters right now. But when Temple is consistently beating the snot in One. Paxton Lynch probably should have been a little hint. To one John Elway. Yeah. Maybe I shouldn't take this guy packs in lunch. Paxton Lynch from first round pick. So I think he was bouncing around. Never made the roster with the Seahawks and the Steelers to now joining the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Of the Canadian Football League. Now my Sports update, which is a great NFL account. Their season gets underway on August six, so I don't follow much of the CFL. I would assume that this is a late move, though, with the season just getting underway. In August six. You basically got a month to prepare for a little over a month to prepare for the season. I don't know what one of the traditions in the signing period and people going to the CFL, but Paxton Lynch is he even got to start? I don't have a damn clue to answer that question. Imagine that state of life. You go from a first round pick. I would hope he's starting with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. I have no clue there any good? I have nothing. No knowledge of them. All I know is that they play in the CFL. Can you do me a little research here? Poor farm boy. Ryan. Traci Key. Can you find the depth chart? They even have that. Can you let me know if there's any competition for one, Paxton Lynch. And taxing if you can't start And the CFL, and they'd be time to hang them up and realize. That being a professional quarterback in the NFL, the CFL isn't cut out for you. Now there's some quarterbacks that Quickly fail in the NFL. They go to the CFL, and they have a really good career. You know? Henry Burris was a heck of a Canadian Football League player talking about a temple guy. And he was wonderful. He was great in the CFL. So just because you're not great, and the NFL doesn't mean that you can't have success in the CFL. It's like you look at the NBA. How many guys you watching college? And you go. Wow. There'll be a good NBA player ever get an opportunity or the NBA? But then they go overseas. And they have these 10 15 year careers where they make money. They get to continue to play the sport that they love. And even though I was tough on the XFL And also the A F. It does allow you to extend that dream and continue to play the sport that you love. Even though it's not the level That you expected to play when you were growing up as a kid, right? No one's growing up as a kid saying, Man I want to play in the XFL one day. You're not growing up as a kid, If you're In America saying, Oh, yeah, I want to play for the Canadian Football League. One day Now you're growing up, saying I want to play in the NFL one day now, Paxton Lynch. Is in the Canadian Football League with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Now you're laughing. I could see a big grin behind them the microphone behind the glass right in front of that microphone. That means there's a very Funny person or something that we know that is, uh, with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Few things, But what?.

The ball has been able to prove the buzzer. Had they been able to prove that al tubay was wearing an actual buzzer on his shirt embody. I would have been a little more upset. But that's just it like the keys. Lost that series in themselves. They could not do anything right. Even if we were getting pitches they could not do anything. Right in that series. Yup the dodgers. Yes they put up a great fight. That was one of the best series. I've ever seen in my life. It was amazing. But like you said. I'll to bay in springer in korea. They all still had to hit those pitches. And i'm sorry even as again seven you played. I played baseball is someone who's been in that box. Even if you know for a fact that pitcher is throwing a fastball. You still have to time it correctly. It with the right portion of your back could enough power behind it not too much power like there's still so much science to government you literally take you five percent out of the whole factor of hit a ball and i. It's the only guessing portion of it. And i thought you thought you brought up a good point seven about the caught not getting caught. Barry bonds is perfect example. Everybody mark mcgwire. Sammy sojourner nor only because like i would not be surprised to feel to the league was like all right so real in a couple of guys get away with it just we could use. Some scores brings ratings now and then everybody was like oh wait. They're not paying attention to this. And then you have the steroid era in royd. I mean like in a thing for me is like i care more about the steroid era in the cerro usage than i do about the astra sealants fucking serious because i can tell you. Steroids make a heck of a lot more of a difference at the plate. The knowing that enough in little league in junior high in high school like coaches said if you notice if you happen to see coach to assign and then notice the player do something remember that. Tell the coach. That's how you play baseball. And maybe i was taught wrong but to me. That is how you play baseball. We don't wanna find out your science. That's why teams narrow. Don't use a sign for more than a game or two because things get figured out you chain them up like but the thing for me is like you've got these these teams like the yankees yankees have one of the worst offenses in baseball with her for the lineup. And the that the payroll that they have the edition like the where they are at what they and how they are performing results rise like boston is beating them with a minor league line. Judge judge before they pay that big ass contract. Exactly i use contract and and so for me. It's like you know there's going to be teams like the yankees that are going to sit there and be perfectly fine with the advantage. They give financially by getting the best selection players but the section but the the second that you get one small advantage on them that they don't like they're going to raise holy hell. Oh your hand. no. I'm sorry. But like when i was in high school i was playing baseball if i was seeing nine hundred something that was going to give a. Tell for a pitch or something like that. You wrestling teammates. Oh yeah and it's the same thing like before the answers to the nfl before they got sold all that. The astros had one of the smallest budgets in all of baseball. Their entire budget for their entire team was what a rod made year. Twenty eight million dollars and this is one of those times when you start to see arguments salary cap in baseball And promise like fully guaranteed contracts for everything I mean i don't. I'm not gonna fall to player for getting the money so let me be clear on. I don't have a problem with players getting their piece of the pie. With how much revenue they bring in for those teams right. But what i'm going to say is if we truly want to start needling out the small issues why sign stealing why Yet you know blowout games sour cap because otherwise because like right now and and the thing is you know you can't. You can't build a competitive team. Don't tell me that because right now. Tampa bay rays number one in the mlb power ranking. I guarantee you looking at the other teams in the powering. They have them the lowest or one of the lowest payrolls students since the oakland. A.'s figure out how to use the analytics in baseball. Which if you don't order that is go watch moneyball that is not that is not a valid argument anymore because they that team showed that you can look at analytics players figure out where they're going to be good in make a quality team with little money. It is doable. That's bull that the bullshit like it's just not true you. That one really frustrates me. Because now that was the same thing. The astros did they inbound players. They found spring. They found to a big built a teeny minimum. It took them. You got to remember. I can't think of the new owners name. But when he came in took the five years and moving divisions that before they were even closed to competitive yep are against google say was is like with the astros like they're currently six in the mlb power rankings. There be one of those a have them in the white sox the raise the white sox the astros and the as are going to have some of the lowest payroll in baseball and that's four of the sixteen. Th that's four of the ten teams well an see. The i know i pay attention to a lot of houston sports news. There is not one astros player. Not one leading his position in the all star voting. The only one close is all too vague. It's number two The the thing for me. I think it's is much as i as much as i like to. Make jokes about the astros. Because it is what it is. It's easy common target. Are mid jokes. The astros with a target on their back. This season are currently six in the mlb calling that shows. I mean an end. There's no way that they're not gonna be getting scrutinized by everybody with everything that they did with a word doing something he wants things to social. You'll know like let's be real here so i would. We're talking about the cheating scandals and them being you know being no right after the series of the astra's does stuff before the will be actually for me said. Oh hey. This happened to goodyear tire another season for the days of the in. I think part of that comes back. Say robert manfred again. Just the worst commissioner in sports.

In trying to negotiate with the SEC and the A. C C in the big 10 in the big 12. So yes, there. Whoever takes over the Pac 12 will have to negotiate the new contract and it will be Very important contract. More than that. New Pac 12 commissioner has got to figure out a way to make the Pac 12 relevant. Whatever way you have to do that, because these states like California. Are hemorrhaging talent. That are heading to other places. Pac 12. Can't recruit. In the states. They reside in And that doesn't all fall on the commissioner, But he's at the top, and he's the one That needs to make decisions and do things to make it so young athletes in the states of Colorado and Utah and Arizona and Nevada And California and Washington and Oregon. Look at this Pac 12. On close to, if not equal footing with the other power five conferences. To make the job. Of the football programs, the basketball programs.

Inside the Downfall of the XFL
"XFL was supposed to be the league that can finally make spring football work with financial backing from WWe's Vince McMahon in veteran leadership from commissioner Oliver Luck. The idea seemed promising. But just five weeks in Copen, nineteen forced the xfl hit pause, and then unlike other leaks. It announced it was shutting down for good. Today the inside story of why the xfl closed doors, and whether it could have been saved. I'M UNICOM'S IT's Tuesday June sixteenth. This is espn daily presented by marathon. Shaken. What's Shakin what she can not much some to you're talking to you Kevin Siefert writes about the NFL and the xfl for ESPN. So Kevin the last time you and I talked was to preview the xfl so excited about this new league time the rules and how funding would be, and whether it would work, and while sadly, we are gathered here today to autopsy the xfl the. League officially suspended their operations on April tenth season quote the uncertainty of the current environment, obviously referencing the corona virus pandemic. What was it like inside the League on that day? It was pretty wild. Actually talked to Kurt unsecure. WHO's the president of the Saint? Louis? Battle. Hawks and he heard some rumors he had wondered if the League would. Need to cut back in some way like many businesses, but he at most thought there might be some layoffs or potentially some furloughs, but when he woke up that morning. Like many other xfl employees he saw the. Direct deposit from. His pay. Was much larger than normal. Anyone who's ever worked in an office setting or a for a company of any kind knows that on your last day you get a paycheck for your salary, and also for any occasion time accumulated, and that's what that's. What happened here and that was really the first sign that he occurred hunziker or anybody. Really who worked for the xfl knew that not only were some changes about to happen, but. Some really ominous events were about the Kerr that day. And they found out. There was a going to be an all company conference. Call at about noon. And that's where they were informed that everyone who works for the League was terminated. Kevin Win all that down. The XFL was on hold like pretty much everything else right I mean the pandemic hit a sports world back in March when the NBA system. It's season. WWe Closes headquarters in Stamford Connecticut days later then on March. Twentieth six fell big flat out of their season, and said we look forward to playing full seasons for you, and with you in twenty twenty one, so it seemed like at the time the plan wasn't afford the league entirely, but just hit pause. Pick up when the pandemic was over. Why do you think they thought they could keep going back then? I think they they felt pretty good that in the five weeks at the season had managed to get through they had. Gone a long way. Towards proving the concept they had pulled in about twenty million league revenues, and they're projecting forty six million through the rest of the year. They're TV. Ratings had dipped, but they were about to go on a run of having most of their games, either on ABC or Fox and so, that would probably at least stabilized the ratings, and they thought that they would have for the first time since they had started building the league time to really sit down, pull apart their thoughts and come up with a better product, the following year Vince McMahon who the owner of the League he had pulled almost four hundred million dollars out of WWe stocks into his personal account to finance. Really for two or three years, and so they knew the money was there, he had put up about two hundred million, and was committed to paying another hundred and fifty million a year for a few years. Until they could potentially get the profitability, so there was. A lot of confidence that the money existed to continue subsidizing the League in that long term plan would not be sacrificed just because the season had to end more abruptly than they had hoped. I didn't know that so the xfl Vince McMahon rather was using wwe money to fund the XFL. Right away you know Vincent Man's the owner of w w well early state, the founder and the CEO, and so he had lots of stock, and so he used that stock eventually to fund the XFL. There was a division, a financial and business division, but you know there was also a shared services agreement between the two. Certainly the way they were able to recruit coaches and front office people and even the Commissioner Oliver luck the way they were able to convince people to come aboard was the show them the plan the financial plan that he had to spend money over the over those three years, there was public documents. That showed that the stock had been sold in that the money was now. In Vincent. Man's hands to fund the XFL and that's why they they felt so good about it. So the xfl like every other sport announces. Hey, we're going on pause. Then a couple of weeks pass. What was the state of play at the beginning of April? Really at the beginning of April the XFL was in off season mode. Oliver Lock. WHO's the commissioner had been asked to come up with twenty, twenty, one I jets. He had asked all the department has all the team presidents to come up with plans to market the teams throughout the long off season. That was to come. Everything was in the XFL. Offices were being directed towards this twenty twenty one season and a lot of times towards the twenty twenty two seasons well, they were looking ahead, saying okay, here's what we want to do in twenty twenty one. We WanNa make it better, and this is what we want and twenty twenty two, and then then we look to see if we can be profitable and this was all going on really. Really, in between the time, the xfl canceled season, and when it shuttered and had bankruptcy, and so those plans were all compiled, and I'll reluctant demand to Vince McMahon, and then they didn't hear anything. They didn't hear anything back, and they thought maybe it was because Wrestlemainia was going on. People had their attention there, but that was something that caused a little bit of unease as the second week of April arrived and that. They've been asked to create these budgets. And then there have been radio silence. So Oliver Overlook. Who was commissioner of the XFL also Andrew looks father for those who don't know and has been a sports executive for years used to NFL Europe who's an executive with the NCWA? He's going about his business. Assuming the league's going to come back putting together some plans, and then what happens. And then he gets a call or actually gets a letter on April ninth stating that he had been fired for cause and the letter came from. Vincent man and from the his attorney listing supposed. Infractions to his contract into his duties that Oliver Luck had apparently committed in his response, Oliver Luck in his legal papers, said he had never been told of any of these issues, but on April Ninth I, think about five o'clock is when Oliver Luck found out, he'd been fired. So what elect do? You know he is already in his home. In Indianapolis, the xfl offices were closed, and so he immediately got with his lawyer. Because when you get fired, because usually that can mean that the guarantee in your contract is no longer valid, and so he has sued for wrongful termination, not only disputing the reasons that Vince McMahon fired him which among other reasons, whereas the use of company cell phone for personal reasons which. Many people in the xfl on in the public to be an awfully little bit of a petty, and that's not even editorializing. It's just a fact. You know petty reason to fire sports commissioner WHO's making. Between five and seven million dollars a year, and so he not only is disputing the facts of what was in the latter, his termination letter, but also that the xfl never gave him the thirty days. That's required in his contract to correct any issues that ownership is having, and so that is currently playing out in court. We'll see who wins on that or whether there is some kind of negotiation that occurs, but at the moment Oliver Luck seeking twenty three point eight million dollars from Vince McMahon, who can fill the contract that he signed in two thousand, eighteen to be the commissioner of the xfl.
