The 5 biggest Netflix original series have been revealed

"Netflix. Says these are it's five most-watched original series now. This one is weird to me because we were talking the other day about mandalorian. How it's a real flagship series for disney. Plus it's generated subscribers and big budget and all the rest and we were curious where like we'll netflix's has been around for a while. What is their flagship stuff. And so i. I thought of stranger things i also thought about some of the money. They paid for a lot of those comedy specials I wasn't the the escobar show. What was that called. What norcal narcos was that. Another one yes. Ozark is very good. Okay oh sorry anyway. They've done them as done them. But i saw this list and this list kind of surprise a lot of shows. I never watched or heard of for their top five. Most watched shows and well some of them are recent. Which kind of explains you know. Maybe i'm not necessarily watching him. So some of them are recent but number of coming in at number five with sixty three million viewers by the way in order to be viewer. Show on netflix. All used to do is watch two minutes really just so you know that's the threshold while two minutes which for a series. It's kinda crazy to say you watch the series if you only watch two minutes. But that's the metric that they're using they They got this deal With the former the former producer maker of grey's anatomy scandal. What is her name. Rhymes shonda shonda rhimes. Anyway they produce this show. Renton and sixty. Three million people watched it came out recently. And never heard of yeah. See you've never heard of it. I've never i mean. I don't think it's targeted at us. By the way if you scroll down a little bit oh we don't see image for some reason but if you did see the image you would know it is not targeted at you. Okay and then you go or maybe you feel that that's targeted at you. Don't alley brought from sean to land. Who brought you grazing so her. Production companies called sean dillon. She signed one hundred. Fifty million dollar deal with netflix to make some content and this is one of them. That's coming in number filing number four tiger king. This one i heard of but i never watched. Did you watch that. no i'm with you. I've heard many things about it. Good and bad. So when i saw this have a big number for viewership coming in at number four. I believed it. Because i heard the chatter on social media right around the time. When a lockdown lifestyle was taking off it was a lot of tiger king talk. So i i understand that one. Go number three number three stranger things. That's the other one that i had heard about seeing some of the promotions. Seizing three was the top of the bunch. Sixty four million you can see. Some of these are pretty close. Scroll down to number two this one money heist which is a translation. This was a spanish show that i sure you've never heard of but huge in the spanish speaking world is it. Yeah i've seen The hero image on netflix But i haven't watched it. Yeah i guess it would be subtitles if you watched it. Yeah yeah and then coming. In at number one. The witcher seventy six million. Did you know this. Did you watch this I believe this was a really popular show. I have not watched it yet. You see that's going though to lot of. We did not watch it and we're netflix subscribers. So it's kind of. It's a bit interesting. Yeah but we don't watch anything really. I don't watch enough stuff to even say. Maybe this stuff is amazing. But if you ever if you were curious like what are the statistics of a popular show on netflix. This should give you an idea. Between sixty and eighty million between sixty and eighty million viewers is a hit considered a hit original for net flicks. I'd be curious what the mandalorian pulled off. Because i feel like there's a different level that's why i feel like is a big threat to netflix's model the disney's powerhouse in

Startup Streamer Quibi Quits

"A huge Hollywood experiment ended its life in a way that seems somehow fitting qube accompany designed to bring miniature Netflix's quality shows to your smartphone call. It quits earlier this month like it's programs which were no longer than ten minutes apiece. quickies vary life was itself short only about six months long the infant media company hit attracted almost two billion dollars from investors about one hundred, fifty, million dollars in advertising and some big name actors and directors. As a result quibbles dramatic closure has spawned no end of speculative criticism about what the startup did wrong and whether it's leaders Hollywood powerhouse, Jeffrey Katzenberg and former HP. CEO Meg Whitman did anything right? In case you haven't heard of it. The original idea behind Qube was to make high quality programs that were short enough to watch from start to finish. While waiting to do something else say riding the subway were standing at checkout line. These wouldn't be user generated youtube like videos but what qube envisioned as the quote next generation of storytelling dramas comedies a non-fiction programs cut into quick bites the origin of the company's name you get the idea. QUBE had the bad luck to launch during the pandemic that meant the service designed explicitly for people out and about debuted when people were in definitely not out and about position as another streamer. But Not at first on your TV quickly did what most streamers and new apps do when it launched in early April it offered a ninety day free trial about a million and a half people signed up and presumably began watching quickies original shows thrillers like. Wireless about a drunk man caught in a New Year's Eve snowstorm free Ray Sean drama about a black man accused of killing a police officer and last looks a series about scandals in the fashion world. As I said earlier at launch, you can only watch on a smartphone despite the fact that most viewers were quarantined in their homes with perfectly usable TV's at their disposal. It took a few more months for quick to make the TV leap. The question back in May and June was how many of those initial free viewers would convert to paying customers quickies price was high five month with ads were eight dollars without them as the verge points out apple TV plus costs four, ninety, nine a month worse quickies higher prices more expensive than Disney plus. The answer on those conversions was clear. Qube didn't get anywhere near enough money or viewers, and with that dearth viewers, some advertisers threatened to canceled on October Twenty Second Katzenberg Whitman published an open letter on medium announcing queries collapse. The founders laid some of the blame on Covid nineteen but not all in addition to timing they said, another likely reason could be. That the idea itself wasn't strong enough to justify a standalone streaming service. Indeed. A great deal of the criticism says exactly that the format itself was flawed from the start ten minutes may have been far too long for some content and far too short for others. A sort of nether world that works for user generated youtube content, but not for expensive productions that aspire to be the next Netflix. As one example, the Guardian reporter. Jack Bernhardt commended free ratio on actors Steffan Jones Laurence Fishburne an emmy winner. Jasmine Safest Jones for spectacular performances in powerful production. But he added quote it feels almost offensive to everyone involved that I can only watch it on tiny phone screen. Furthermore, he said it should have been a two hour film not fifteen quick bites. The company is exploring selling the rights to some content screenwriters and producers with shows underdevelopment or left to try to sell them elsewhere a tough sell given that most media companies can't use five or ten minute episodes. is returning about three hundred, fifty million dollars to investors and giving severance to two hundred employees. The Wall Street Journal reports, Katzenberg and Whitman's letter puts quickies. Of the entire very busy streaming media ecosystem the executives would never have imagined launching during a pandemic they said, but they admitted other businesses have faced these unprecedented challenges and have found their way through it. Indeed, we've reported here on boom times for Netflix's and Disney plus among others all of benefited enormously from lockdowns. The mistake Qube made lies in a different sphere altogether says verge critic Julia Alexander Qube didn't fail because TIKTOK. existed she says, it failed because executives refuse to see Tiktok its biggest competition she wrote tick tock has exploded globally with an ever growing mountain of user generated short form video video that is virtually free to produce free to consume. But qube had its I trained on net flicks if Alexander is correct quimby was looking for threats or a role model in the wrong direction. In an already struggling Hollywood, it's hard to watch the layoffs of employees and the suffering of artists who shows are now killed. A great deal of talent converged around quipping remains to be seen. We're all that talent. Finding out.

The George Soros Saga: Antisemitism, Conspiracies, and Influence

"Billion-a-year Fillon therapist mega donor George Soros has long been the villain of conspiracy theories. He has also been a target of politicians and pundits on the right who resent his fierce opposition to George W Bush and Donald. Trump, they also object to his philanthropy support of liberal causes support most clearly defined by his mega donations. Earlier this month, the open society foundations, the ill philanthropic group founded by Mr Soros announced it would invest one hundred, fifty million dollars in grants for black lead, racial justice groups, and another seventy million toward local grants for criminal justice reform. The announcement came amid protests in the streets and calls for racial justice sparked by the murder of George. Floyd. Minneapolis those protests, some of which have turned violent have fuelled critics to view those donations as efforts to foment anarchy and back government corruption emily. Tamken. saw these critiques and conspiracy theories already building steam and two thousand sixteen which inspired her to research and write the influence. Of Soros, her latest Book Emily Welcome. Thank you so much for having me on the show so far listeners. Let's take a step back and start with WHO is George Soros not who the conspiracy theorists say he is but who is he really and what causes does he support and why? George. Is a Hungarian born American billionaire he is very influential in three realms the realm of finance, the rubber philanthropy, and the realm of politics in finance. He was a very famous and successful hedge fund manager. He's maybe the most famous and successful currency speculator in the history of finance, and then you know in the nineteen seventies after making a lot of money, he decides to start giving away some of that money to the cause of what he calls open society. The title comes the Name Open Society comes. From this book by Karl. Popper who was Soros's tutor at the London School of Economics and basically the premise of open society and its enemies is that this gross over simplification but basically, the premise is that you know neither you nor I can really know the truth. So what we're supposed to do is all of us together in a society come together and we discuss and debate, and we try to reach this perfect understanding and practice that's meant giving students scholarships. It's meant setting up a university in. It's meant you know after the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc in Suva Union paying for Internet for various government ministries and trying to connect people to information. He's also a big an influential figure in politics beginning in two thousand four. In the United States, he decided that he really wanted George W Bush out of office and became a major political donor. So I think you know I WANNA be careful to make clear that the political spending is separate from thirty but because he's this major philanthropic and also major political donor and because the political donations or not exclusively, but do tend to be four Democrats in liberal causes. I think that that colors the perception of some not just on the right but particularly, some people on the right in the United States. So source is a Hungarian. Jewish emigrant right tell us more about his upbringing and how it informed his philanthropy and political activism nineteen thirty Hungary is the Inter war period between World War One and World War Two prior to World War One Jews in the Hungarian part of the austro-hungarian Empire were more assimilated than many other Jews in Europe. They really saw themselves. Many of them saw themselves as Hungarian were part of the Hungarian national project report of this Lake Glittering Budapest life world we're one happens Hungary is on the losing side they lose a lot of their territory in the tree of and all, which is like the austro-hungarian version of the treaty of Versailles. And for a variety of reasons, the Jews are scapegoated for this. So you have these he's born into this world where you start having a Jewish quotas laws meant to persecute Jews, and this is. Even, before World War Two, his father has them changed their name from shorts to Soros to seem less obviously Jewish in this increasingly hostile environment his father had previously like escaped. Prison camp in Siberia during World War, one and made his way back to Hungary during the Russian civil war. So he knew something about survival. World to comes and there's there's not the occupation and there's the Arrow Cross which is like the Hungarian variant. He sees his father as this great protective figure who helped other people the father. was procured bull forged embargo documents of the Soros family and friends in front of friends could hide out is Christians during during the time, but he also he's persecuted for being Jewish he then after world, War Two is living under a certainly not the same kind of persecution but under a repressive oppressive socialist regime and I think that this is two things one, it makes this concept of society where we can all debate and discuss very attractive and I also think that for him because he was persecuted on the basis of his ethnicity religion. That inspired in him. The understanding that it was important to try to help whatever group was caught under the wheel at a given moment with this history and background in mind. IS IT ANTI Semitic to criticize Mr Soros and the causes he supports I'm not saying the criticizing Soros is. Anti Semitic I think he's done things that you can criticise part of the reason that I wrote this book is that it should be what he is actually done and the money that he's actually spent not money that he has never spent and thinks he has never going to do that to me is when it trips over into in antisemitic conspiratorial.

Under Fire, Shake Shack Returns $10 Million in Small Business Funds

"Big news yesterday. Burger chains shake shack is returning. It's ten million dollars. Pp loan that people of course is short for the payment protection program. That's part of the Federal Government's cares act. It was touted as a bailout for small business. The low interest loans forgivable if at least three quarters of the money is used to keep workers on payroll but a number of large publicly traded companies including certain shake shack managed to get multimillion dollar loans before the program ran out of funds last Thursday that angered millions of owners of considerably smaller businesses. Who were locked out of the program? Here's what happened. The PPI was intended for businesses with fewer than five hundred employees. The Small Business Administration's definition of small business but it included a clause that allowed companies with multiple locations to apply as long as there were fewer than five hundred workers at each location shake. Shack is public company. Employing eight thousand people across close to two hundred stores in the US. It's valued at one point. Seven billion dollars according to Forbes but fewer than forty five people make burgers and fries at any single shake shack store that's far below the PP's single location cab. When the program was announced the company had already furloughed or laid off about one thousand workers so shake shack applied for the P and it turns out. They weren't the only multimillion dollar company to do so other applicants included. Ruth's Chris Steak House. Three hundred million dollar cruise line and four hundred million dollar data storage company and that's created a big problem for small businesses. According to Bloomberg two percent of the firms approved for loans got thirty percent of the total funds Solo preneurs and small businesses faced with the prospect of going out of business permanently. Were furious to learn that more than a dozen public companies with revenues greater than one hundred million dollars had received portions of the funds leaving little for them according to Bloomberg four inches. Ruth's Chris employs almost six thousand people. It's sales topped half a billion dollars. Last year. It received twenty million dollars in P. Money. Four hundred million dollar pot belly corporation chain of sandwich shops also employs six thousand people. It received million dollars in the low interest funds. Bloomberg's Ed but shake shack has since apologized for applying for the loan in an open letter. Sunday. Owner Danny Meyer and CEO Randy. Rudy said the. Pp's initial guidance was confusing. They wrote quoting here. The best chance of keeping our teams working off the unemployment line and hiring back are furloughed laid off employees would be to apply now in hoped things would be clarified in time close quote. They were losing more than a million dollars a week. At that time last week the company was able to sell equity on the public market and raise one hundred fifty million dollars as a result Meyer. Garate decided to return their peop- funds quoting again so that those restaurants who need it most can get it now. They said in a statement. They acknowledged their good fortune and having access to other funds and said until every restaurant that needs it has had the same opportunity to receive assistance. We're returning hours. Well responses ran the gamut from laudatory to highly critical some observers praised owner Danny Meyer is noble and pledged to be lifelong customers others were livid saying restaurant. Chains should never have applied in the first place. It'll take time to see whether public opinion will tilt toward shake shack or against it. However the company's actions received a hearty congratulations in one place by Monday. Evening it stock was up seven percent. In contrast. Ruth's Chris fell seven percent. Potbellies was also down by yesterday afternoon. No other major restaurant chains or public companies had stepped forward to follow shake shacks lead

Scotland Set to Be First Country to Provide Free Pads and Tampons

"Scotland is on its way to becoming the first country. In the world to offer free sanitary products academia general principles about tonight will be stolen moments for normalizing menstruation in Scotland. Sending that to people and this country but parliament takes gender equality. So why is this move such a big deal? Well let's break this down for you. The average person with a uterus will spend over six years of their life on their period and over those six years. They'll use over nine thousand tampons or more than two thousand PADS. That's a lot of trips to CVS and those trips can really add up. Scotland's been aware of that for a while back in two thousand eighteen. It became the first country to offer free pads and Tampons in schools and colleges before that one study found that a quarter of female students couldn't afford them and Scotland is a highly developed country in less developed countries. That figure shoots up and has pretty dramatic consequences across the entire continent of Africa. One in ten girls has to miss school because they can't access sanitary products in India. One in five girls drop out of school completely after they get their periods and not going to school because of a period can affect the rest of their lives because the girls who are forced to drop out of school are more likely to get married. Younger have more children and live in poverty. That's why organizations like the World Bank and UNICEF. Jeff are working to promote menstrual health education to reduce the stigma around periods and there are a bunch of nonprofit organizations working to try to bring more sanitary products to the people who need them. There's a whole term for when people are affected by the cost associated with menstruation it's cold period poverty and in affects people around the entire world. Not just in developing countries including people in the US back in two thousand sixteen. President Obama said he was surprised to learn most states tax tampons as luxury goods. That basically means the product isn't considered necessary enough to warrant getting exempt from tax. I have no idea. Why states would tax these as luxury items? I. I suspect it's because men were making the laws when the tax were passed people in the. Us are paying about one hundred fifty million dollars every year just on the sales tax alone that tax plus the cost of the products themselves can really add up. If you're on a tight budget some state lawmakers have introduced legislation to get rid of this tax altogether but about two thirds of states still charge one other countries like Canada. Australia and South Africa have made changes. They've exempted sanitary products from taxes. And the UK and European Union have pledged to do the same but now Scotland has upped the ante. No more digging for change for the Tampon vending machine public places will have free sanitary products and hopefully other countries are taking

CAVALIERS ACQUIRE TWO-TIME NBA ALL-STAR ANDRE DRUMMOND

"I think one of the themes of it's an obvious one. But between what they got a Cappella and the whole bunch of nothing. That Detroit got Andre Drummond. I think we've reached a point where the League league is valuing centers that's solely that I don I'm just did I make sense so lonely. I don't know without the they don't know. One is placing a lot of value on centers. And if the rockets looked Capella will look. We don't think our current team is at its best with Capelle on the floor. Mike is not gonNA play him. Let's turn them into someone who's GonNa play for for us that makes conceptual sense to me. There just wasn't I mean Boston. Look how easily these teams got. Andre Drummond Cleveland got under Donald for literally. Bring Jon Hinson Brandon Knight in the a second round pick nuts and nothing. Well I mean I mean in the second round pick is I think it's the warriors second in two thousand twenty two or twenty three and that's going to be probably a pretty decent so Yeah Yeah I think that's true But yeah drums a fascinating case because like what was the last time I'm a guy and all this year all star but on an expiring contract got US second round in Cap Filler. Detroit's GonNa get hammered for this. Yeah hammered but you know what didn't want on their team. Well that's the thing like. They got nervous that we started to see this market shrinking right. The market of Memphis didn't can have cap cap. Space went out the window. Atlanta doesn't need a center New York's got new owners management. There I mean we don't know if Andre Drummond drumming is Leeann Rose Guy You know that. I don't think that's going to be your first big signing go in there and like give him four years one hundred fifty million dollars in New York. The Knicks fans just just vomited. As you're saying that they just vomited So if you're Detroit you know what happens if he if he ops in then and you've got a you got him for the year. Maybe trying to flip him in another deal. So you kind of cut your Bait you get a second round pick You've got thirty five thirty six million million dollars in In Room to go out and get a starting point.

And then you kind of patch up your rescue roster stor or you just wait and just kind of I mean I think the reality is that like Detroit is like like full rebuild. This and the canard rumors that they were willing to trade canard for a good draft. Pick not a crappy traffic. That's why they didn't get the deal done. They're probably haggling with Phoenix over as well as reported over how heavily protected or lightly that pick is going to be but but it does signal like.

SoftBank keeps walking away from startup investments

"This morning Dan. premark revealed that sources have been telling telling him that Softbank's Vision Fund has actually walked away from several investments in startups over recent weeks these startups had all received term. I'm she tes already. From South Bank to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars Softbank had delayed some funding around concentrations. Recently after the whole we work turmoil but reportedly Softbank had told the companies involved that the closing delays would only be temporary. Apparently that turned out not to be true to say. It's highly unusual for an investor to ghost after delivering a term. Sheet would be putting it. Mildly here are just two examples quoting Dan. Honor is a San Francisco homecare company for older adults. That's raised over one hundred million dollars from firms. Like Andriessen Horowitz. NASCAR's and thrive capital. It received a term sheet from Softbank in mid-november with subsequent reports putting the deal size at around one hundred fifty million dollars Softbank CEO Masayoshi sewn gave his blessing during a meeting at his woodside. California state with honor. Co Seth Sternberg per a source familiar. Softbank kept saying it had to run some process stuff before getting the term sheet fully signed nine but said they wanted to get it funded by year end. So it started confirmatory due-diligence law firms background checks iwo going through stuff etc.. There was no reason to think there was going going to be a problem and quote. Softbank Killed The deal one week before Christmas telling honor that son had changed his mind. Sawn did not personally communicate his decision. Decision or rationale to the company and quote and Creator is a San Francisco based developer of hamburger making robots whose backers include Google ventures as an KHOSLA ventures. Softbank signed the company to an exclusive six-month term sheet for a round that was many multiples of the twenty five million dollars in it raised to date quote. Totally screwed screwed is how one source close to Creator refers to what happened next like with the other examples it was unexplained delay after unexplained delay and at one point said it wanted wanted to add a co lead investor. The company pushed back and Softbank agreed to wire between ten million and fifteen million dollars a show of good faith but the hurry up and wait persisted with multiple sources telling me last month that the original deal was dead. Things may have since changed however as a source close to Softbank says negotiations remain remain active and quote.

"Support tax payers chipping in the one hundred fifty million dollars to renovate the arena. Well, I think that there's a misconception out there that this is the sun's arena and the arena is actually the city of Phoenix arena. And the arena was developed at a time when almost all of the resources public resources being invested in our region to kind of build a suburban place and a small tax was put in place on tourists. Not local taxpayers to fund the construction of the arena in the city has been the owner of the arena since it opened in one thousand nine hundred ninety two and the arena opened at a time when we were really struggling in terms of the revitalization of downtown because all of the energy and investment was in the suburbs. And it really it has been part of the transformation of downtown. So essentially, what the city is proposing is to take this tax, which is continued to be in place. In use it to renovate the building. And in fact, since the building got built the sons have invested almost one hundred and fifty million dollars in the city building to keep it maintained. Keep it. You know, renovated. Why did taxpayers have taxpayers have to do anything here? You know, you've got a billionaire owner. It's his team. And I know that there's more. There are other teams that play at the arena, their concerts and all that stuff. But I mean, the days of of the taxpayer funding these buildings for sports owners are done. So why don't why? Yeah. So so the arena, which is a city owned building was a decision that the city made helped revitalize downtown more than twenty five years ago and the city's going the only arena whether or not the sons continue to play in it. And so if you're interested in the city having a facility that hosts the Fleetwood MAC's and Jimmy Buffett's and journeys and the Garth Brooks is etc has been building the building is going to need to be renovated, and it's gonna be needs to be managed. The restrooms have to work and the heating and air conditioning. He has to work whether or not the city is running and managing the building. Or whether the songs are doing it for the city. All right. Let me let me propose this and David Kreider president and CEO of downtown Phoenix incorporating a group that promotes the revitalization of downtown Phoenix. Would you be in favor of selling the building? The city sells it and having a private company private person run the building. Tax payers, don't have to do anything. Well, that's really interesting that you say that that's actually a good point. And I personally don't have an opinion on that. But most of the arena's in in the venues like it in the United States are supported the operating expenses of the building are supported by the tax payers. So for example, for many years in addition to funding the arena in Glendale. The city of Glendale water check every year for fifteen million dollars to subsidize the private management to the arena, and they're still paying over six and a half million dollars a year to do that one of the beauties of steel with the songs that's been in place since the early nineties is the scientists assume all of the operating expenses for the arena. And and they take all of the risk for operating in a building. So you have these other cities that are investing significant resources to subsidize the actual operations of building here. The songs of the dollar that responsibility, and they delivered great amenities for us. I mean, you know on on concert nights game nights on you know, in the old days. It was all about how fast could you get people in their cars and getting back to the.

"Their fan base is predominantly African Americans because that's the people that live in Atlanta Julio being from Alabama, not only born and raised. The plan is college football there in the heart of the SEC for Alabama. All those things. He is the number one commodity. I know Mattie ISIS or quarterback, but Julio Jones is the biggest superstar and having a big superstar on this, a legitimately glide superstar. That isn't your quarterback. It was. It's one of the reasons, Vic was so important to Atlanta. The race component of that market is a real one, but you mentioned Matt Ryan. It's not just the investment they made in that stadium. This gave Matt Ryan with give him one hundred fifty million dollars. They had like right note, no doubt. Like I, I'm not criticizing the decision to give him the money, but you want immediate returns on that money. The best way to get immediate returns on that money is to give Matt Ryan his best, make sure he has his best weapon. One of the best. Weapons in the entire NFL and a guy who bins defenses, even though they don't charge him the reg on the way. I think they should the way he bins defense when you're on your own twenty ardline having to cover him over the top. He's a variety of routes he can run like they have to have Julio Jones. We'll see how this one plays out. Coming up back to basketball is Dan Gilbert already. Baccini post LeBron James era in Cleveland. That's next. Thanks. Brought to you by the energy of Exxon Mobil. These conditions. So after pain, Todd, Gurley the Rams now reportedly simultaneously working on a deal for Aaron, Donald Rams general manager less needs at about Donald steel. Each situation is different. Thanks less. See, you think Aaron Donald gets paid before the season starts the smart guy. He's gonna give them. He's gonna get him pay when you trade for Brandon cook from New England, you give him an extension because he was in the fifth year option when you basically tear up Tigers deal, but you didn't added more years to the back in his years left on it, which you didn't have to do you know that they were working on this and you know that they told Aaron Donald, don't worry about what you're getting ready to read. Can we get tog wrapped up, but I believe they made significant progress on Aaron, they're going to get him signed. He's a great, great football is arguably the best defensive player in the whole league. And when he does get his new contract, he will become the highest paid defensive player. In the history of the league at any position. The only the only distinction here is last year he missed training camp, and so they know they understand that this year when you give Todd Gurley that deal that he is going to be expecting to become the highest paid player in the history of the league on that side of the ball, moving on the Green Bay Packers open training camp today. They're gonna look to bounce back after a disappointing seven and nine season last year. Luckily they'll have their time n. VP BAC Aaron Rodgers, overturn after playing just seven games last year because of that broken collarbone. I, Chris Carter what's the biggest question for the Packers heading into training camp? What's the biggest question for the Packers? How will the defense be? Well, the secondary Bill to stop people's third-down critical situations. That's where the infamous, they healthy man every years, the Packers when they have a bunch of critical injuries, but the Packers are good team, how good is the defense going to be in two thousand eighteen. I'm going to. I think those are all good questions. I'm gonna go to slightly different one. Are they going to have a an above average legitimate running game, legitimate, running back for the first time in years with Aaron Rodgers. They had a guy with a wide receiver number playing there before they had a rookie last year. Like how good is Aaron Jones, who I think they expect to be there running back because we know that Rodgers can make it work with just a multitude of receivers. I'd like to be able to see him with. I don't know, maybe a top twelve NFL running game. Is that too much to ask, aren't moving onto basketball tomorrow.

Fell swoop the thunder had their, luxury tax Bill plummet, for one hundred fifty million. Dollars to a mere eighty eight point eight million dollars Okay it's still a lot. Of money and it certainly means that they're over the salary cap they've got the loopholes they got. The exceptions they're using all of them but to drop. Their luxury tax Bill for one hundred, fifty, million to under eighty nine million is a. Big, deal it will not be a record setting amount of luxury tax like what they would've had. To pay if Carmelo Anthony, had remained a member of that roster he is no longer a member of okay see because the. Thunder trade, him to Atlanta But dot dot dot the story does not end there. He will be waived and will become a free agent. Which means he is free to sign. Wherever. He wants Houston Rockets fans you could be The team that has a? Front row seat for camello Anthony. In two thousand eighteen nineteen Miami Heat fans you could, be the proud owner of our Carmelo Anthony jersey I. Mean could you. Imagine it's only Five years late but after LeBron James Dwayne Wade. And Chris Bosh go through now we could end. Up with Carmelo Anthony felt the banana boat guys, actually Bosh. Wasn't on, the banana boat out by But he certainly part of that crew All we need is Chris Paul to end up, in Miami to rep of his career then that would be that'd, be the parade for the heat anyway Anthony and. His twenty eight million dollar expiring contracts, we've got one year left on it That is no. Longer the thunder's responsibility and in exchange The hawks are allowing guard Dennis Schroder to depart Are going to send him, to the thunder they're sending him to the thunder and he. Would be the backup point guard behind Russell Westbrook They actually in Oklahoma City had a chance to speak with Schreuder before they made this deal and so shooter and Billy Donovan the head coach and San prestige who's the GM. Talked about his. Role to make sure that he was he was good with it because he still has three years left on his deal so they don't they would want to bring. A guy in who was kind, of upset that chemistry and not be happy with his role You know that the hawks drafted trae young, last, month and. So by spending a fifth overall pick on him that means they're going to invest. They want him to be their point guard of the future but they want the future to start right now they also brought in Jeremy, Lin as the guy who could mentor him it can help to train him and prepare him. For the rigors of an NBA season so camello Anthony free to choose which means we could end up getting another Uber entertaining press conference can someone else please bring up this idea of Carmelo Anthony coming off the bench. How do you. Feel about starting at the four or the cause of the starting at the four or even coming in the second question I don't know what I started with I came from Come up there Rich.
