Nike stock surges 10% as fiscal 2021 revenue is expected to rise
"We're GONNA start with some earnings and no better place to start then Nike shares of Nike up twelve percent and hitting an all time high. After Nike issued a first quarter report that was highlighted by what else? Amazing. Digital. Sales. Although I should say their their profits did come in much higher than expected to. Yeah, Nike Hat Prophets of ninety six cents per share versus the forty seven that was expected. So they definitely beats on both the top and the bottom lines and depending on how you read this earnings report and the story that you're telling you can paint two very different pictures for Nike. Here skeptics will tell you that their total revenue year-over-year still fell eight percent despite the fact that it was up on a quarterly basis. So this was by no means a blowout quarter in terms of their top line, but if you. Look at the bigger picture, Nike has been changing their distribution strategy, and so the fact that sales weren't down more when they cut so many large distribution partners over the past few months is actually pretty astounding and what we're seeing the market react to here in my opinion is actually the stellar growth online sales online sales grew eighty two percent more than doubling in certain regions of the world. So this is really a testament not only to renewed demand for Nike's products, but it's a good first step in a changing distribution strategy. We also saw that show up in in their inventory and the way they're managing their inventory. It was a little bit of a challenge last quarter they brought some of that down this quarter so nice to see that improvement. Also, seems like Nike is optimistic about the holidays is that fair to say Definitely. Fair to say what's notable about where you saw their sales come in this quarters is that despite the overall contraction compared to the year ago period sales for footwear, their footwear division, which is really core Nike still grew. So I think they're optimistic about renewed demand especially heading into the holiday season but more importantly especially because they put so much emphasis on to their digital sales, which is really going to be what catalyze people to order people. I think it's safe. Assumption are not going to be traveling as much. This holiday season potentially not going to be giving gifts that they aren't able to order online as much as they were last. Year. So the fact that Nike has reinvested so much money into really connecting direct to consumers and a manner that establishes a more of a relationship between Nike and consumers is potentially going to be good for them and holiday sales. But what's worth pointing out here is that they did cut a lot of partners we talked about it previously, but they cut ZAPPA's they cut dillard's so their foot traffic, the people walking into a store and buying a pair of Nikes that's probably going to be down for the foreseeable future they're going to need to prove that they can pull those customers back in to their digital sales to make it worth it. And this is something they've been investing a lot in over the last few years. So I mean this this is one of those quarters where you see those investments pay off but to your point, this is. When you when you cut off partnerships like that. Then, you're doing so with the confidence that you're going to be able to make it up on your own. and. That wasn't an a political decision in the sense that. Seemed like Nike shareholders were split down the middle about whether or not they believed cutting their partners and their distribution wholesalers really were was the best move for the company I tend to be on the side of I like Nike controlling more of their line controlling their relationship with consumers I. Think long term that can give them some pricing power but I have no doubt in. My mind that short term, you're going to see the impact in terms of their top line growth at the margin profile long-term improves as a result but let's be clear here cutting out what they deemed to be lower tier wholesalers to focus on specialized partnerships that was not a move that was universally perceived to be beneficial to the company. It really was a change interest Egypt. Direction.

"Cowboys last night, pick it up lay dowse needed to recover that onside kick and they did this is a team that was trailing by twenty in the first quarter. Somehow some way climbs back in and got the own onside kick and marched down the field and kicked a forty six yarder to win this game somehow cowboys pulling off the improbable here is the winning quarterback Prescott after the win. Yeah, this is huge because McCarthy said at halftime. We need to be here. We need to be right where we are and he said the final score didn't matter as much as a finding out the type of men that we have the type of fight that we have within this team but as I said to show the resiliency to go out there and continue to fight. Continued, continue add it and just be able to come out with the win. It does so much obviously way better than star knowing too. But going one one and I'm having a lot of confidence after after we put ourselves in such a big hole in the first quarter. Just, just stay at and everybody believes each other that was huge and so in. So many ways.

Six months in, how are you doing?
"In thirty five seconds how we doing because when this thing started, we were talking depression and end of the world. Right so we we've seen the depression part I don't think we'll see the end of the will be. That's the good news. We but we definitely have seen an economic decline that's been at surreal levels. Just think two weeks of a march shutdown with enough to drive a first quarter. GDP. Down five percent on an annualized basis, and now, and then after that, in the second quarter, we saw thirty three percent annualized decline. So it's been truly remarkable in terms of the economic recovery though though the magnitude is severe and still. Severe? It's likely to be one of the shortest economic recessions on record for starting to see the momentum and quick bound said everyone talked about. But from here, it's still vulnerable and the path back to pre pandemic levels is likely to be a long one. Okay. So deep let's talk about the from here part and I point you to Capitol Hill this week and the Senate not able to pass. Its version of another relief package. Why Why question we always ask about Congress. We. We all know that the United States Congress tends to respond to fast moving urgent disasters the ones that are politically salient. The ones that create a create a the momentum they need unfortunately corona viruses becoming a slower moving urgent disaster still disastrous still awful. But it's not necessarily shocking people at the same pace that it did six months ago. That is I think. The big difference that we've become too almost accustomed to the apocalyptic world that we're living in. That's just it's just a weird sense who cares about the deficit at this moment but there are people who do and at least people who care about it from from an timeframe or from whatever form of of of of religious view they have on debt. So, there's always a chance that something could happen in the next few weeks. We don't want to write off Congress completely of course, remembered twelve years ago. There was a giant bail out of the biggest banks that asked Congress just over a month before an election, but it was right after it failed in Congress and took a giant tumble in the stock market to make to to show. Some activities something that looked real for lawmakers to respond to. We just haven't seen anything sudden and real to get people to respond and let me ask you about that slow moving part of this thing because I kind of agree with deep, it happened so fast and now it's become a long drawn out thing. The question is, can people can this economy wait until Congress gets shocked into action? There is a significant segment of the economy that can't wait. Those are the people who seen their unemployment insurance benefits expire at the end of July. Those are the people who may be facing addiction. In early twenty, twenty one if something isn't done to to stay continue to stay the evictions Those are the people who are. PART OF THE OVER A. Fourteen million Americans who've been affected by COVID job losses and you may still be employed but not getting paid. So there are several people who will be affected by a con Congress in a stalemate. What's not seemingly affected the stock market which continues to advance even if you get tripped up here and there and over a course of a couple of weeks, a socks and home prices continue to climb higher. So the impact has been a different. For different segments of the economy will do the stock market is clearly what's giving Congress the covered to not actually move right? I mean that's that's not much of a debate but let me get back to what you said a little while earlier, which is, let's keep an eye on the next few weeks. The you actually believe there's going to be relief action in this. Congress, before the election and if not how it not become a political problem. It it it. I think it's possible that we will get some some type of action just never know like all of these things come out of nowhere like we we would have expected that there would have been. More urgency a month ago or six weeks ago and that that there isn't a think as perhaps the most shocking political story of the moment that that they're not feeling it I do think some lawmakers are are aware of the risk. It had their democratic lawmakers who are screaming at Nancy Pelosi right now saying please pass something We're we're in tight races, but they're also Republican lawmakers who. Carrying on a narrative that the thing that gets out of this is grit and determination, it's not more money. It's it's it's like wrapping yourself in a flag. Maybe, not even with a mask. And and just just trying to like get just get through it and there's this idea that like that's the American spirit and that's the there. These really contrary views of what what the country needs right now that have been. And been become obviously polarizing but become ingrained in our in our minds collect way the nation. Quick. Just a rip off of that a little bit. You know Congress has been remarkable and its ability to pull a rabbit out of the hat in the last minute and what can't be denied. It's the political calculus going into whether or not to do this next round twenty Republican Senate. Seats are also up for election in November and so they have to be doing that calculus what happens to their? Their states, it's no more stimulus as passed. That's going to be part of the negotiations over the next few weeks as well.
Film Academy Announces New Diversity Requirements For Best Picture Nominees
"Hi. This is in the Chicago Tribune yesterday. In an historic move, the Oscars are raising the inclusion bar for best picture nominees, starting with the 96 Academy Awards. This is the one in 2024. Gives the motion picture industry time to do what they say you need to do if you want to be considered for the best picture to meet on screen representation, Standard of film must either have atleast one lead character or a significant supporting character be from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group. At least 30% of secondary roles must be from to underrepresented groups. Where the main storyline theme or narrative must be focused on an underrepresented group. Otherwise, the way I understand it If you're not including people who are under represented relative to gender orientation, race, ethnicity, even disability. If you don't do that, then you can't be the best picture. Michael Phillips. Film critic joins us on W G N Hi, Michael. Welcome to the show. Thank you, John. How are you doing? Really good. That's my understanding of it is that is that a right read on what they're going to do. It is it's although it's it's damn complicated, but, you know, really broken down beautifully with Steve Zai, Check my festival going, pal who's writes in The Washington Post that it's complicated, but you gotta get to Of the four elements right story. The film story, lead actor or ensemble have tto prominently feature unrepresented groups or, you know those working behind the scenes, Same thing, or the production includes paid internships and training for those who are under represented, or that always released team has to have multiple in how senior executives from underrepresented groups, so it's complicated. But you only gotta hit two of the four and I think that I think the telling point he makes is that out of the last 15 best picture Oscar winners last 15 years. 73% of would have been quite clear. No problem. I'm not just talking about what happened. Moonlight or parasite we have, you know, clearly like not the usual white wall of characters or treatment, but you know there's all kinds, so it's not really a cz. I don't want I don't want to. I don't wanna throw fuel on this fire. But it's not really to say it's not the same kind of You know, like under. What would you say affirmative action that a lot of the right is framing it as but you're also saying, I mean, so you see the glasses three quarters full, but I You could also see it is one quarter empty. That is one in four films would not that one. The best picture had met this criteria. Not usually, but I mean, if you just had hired, Let's say, Let's say you didn't even re cast that or rethink anything. It's on screen. Right in terms of the characters are the actors, If you just if those productions had, well, you know what Let's we're all we have is a bunch of white grips or we've never had a female, You know, director of photography or we've never had any any composer of color, you know, working out? Why not? Why not think twice about that? That's that's a less visible but equally important. Right. I think people will judge this though maybe by what they see on the screen on I'm thinking, okay. King speech won best picture that was populated Desire recalled by white people. However, that is about a disability if you will, so maybe that satisfies the requirements. I could just see there being lobbying for some of these criteria to Yeah. Yep. Yep, the ones that would have would have run into a problem. According to the Washington Post, uh, run down his argo, the artist, No country for old men. And the Departed would have had the toughest time as wass. But, you know, it was a little again with a little adjustment. I look, I'm not, You know, I'm not the guy who's gonna Say this is an outrage. I'm just not that guy. You know a TTE the same time, John. I know I'm a hypocrite. Because, you know, I'm one of a white wall of critics of Chicago trip, you know, so it's a sensitive topic. And this is all part of kind of what we're You know what? What Every person in this country is dealing with one way or the other, which is like you know what? How do we? What is this country? You know, what are we supposed to look like? How can we? How can we broaden our perspective of what we see and what we write and what we read.

LeBron becomes all-time leader in playoff wins
"If you remember back to Sunday, Game two of the Western Conference finals. Lakers gave up 41 points in the third quarter before they were able to clamp down defensively, allowing the Rockets to score just 17 in that fourth quarter. Get on Tuesday. It would be a strong fourth quarter. That proves to be the difference for Ella. LeBron James wind up having a huge first half 29 points, but the Lakers were actually trailing at the break. L. A would hold the Rockets to just 18 points in the third. Turning things up defensively, one of the best defensive teams all year that turned it up the Rockets to 22% shooting in the second half. There's another turnover. Anthony Davis, with the steal handed back to Gordon, Front left drives past LeBron layup blocked by James from behind LeBron James with a great block. Gordon thought he was buying me ran down from the back. Another block for James on a runner by harden LeBron James, with two monster blocks 54 Covington to Rivers Wing left us with a rim up on underway Blood by James and the stick that won't count. It comes after the red light was lit. And LeBron with three monster blocks in the corner. We're tied going before the difference in this one. It was a 64 point first half With rockets. Scored 33 points in the first quarter. 31 in the second But just 38 points total. In the second half of the Lakers. Clamping down on defense would also Their foot on the accelerator on offense. Morris swinging Rondo opened three Ling right, Got another one playoff. Rondo is here tonight in Game three. Four point lead for the Los Angeles Lakers. That's 12 points. Ferrando as a timeout is called by Mike D'Antoni governs and threw it away. Trying to find a friend on the left sideline. Rondo working right side before with Davis. Hi, Lobb. Davis caught way right off the jab. Step shoots for two and dropped it in 26 15 for Anthony Davis early, but it's a dagger a little bag. Now, with a minute to play Rondo around the angle Street left side of the room past the diving Kuzma catches and lays it in over the front iron and the Rockets have a look to him that they know they're probably done with under a minute to play, and the short answer would be Yes, The rockets were done at that point. The game was here on ESPN radio Lakers would close it out when it by 10 1 12 102 Lakers taking a 21 Siri's lead Lakers out of 21 to 8. Run. To start the fourth quarter after as we heard, the game was tied heading to the fourth LeBron James 162nd career playoff victory. That's the most all time he spoke with TNT, do what it takes to win both the defense and I know I say that a lot, but it was just the truth. My teammates looks for me to do a little bit of everything, and tonight was another opportunity for me to help and I was happy. I was able to come through for us tonight. LeBron at another milestone to your resume, passing Derek Fisher becoming the NBA's all time leader in a playoff wins. I know you have said time and time again, you'll reflect on those milestones later. To play at the level you're playing at and achieve that milestone in your 17. What does that say about what we're trying to accomplish? It says that I played with a lot of great teams says that I played a lot of great teammates made some great coaches in Cleveland in Miami and now here in Los Angeles, you don't get those wins without teammates so on the coaching staff prepares and do all the preparation Behind the scenes video coordinators. The guys will help rebound the basketballs force assistant coaches that trainers the athletic staff on its own. So it doesn't happen without the support of castes. And it's why I'm able to stay here with this achievement. But it's all about the three organizations. I've been with calves, the heat and not the Lakers. Because without them, I wouldn't be in this position. Speaking of the way you're supporting cast played tonight. Defensively, particularly in that second half. What did you guys find that allowed you to lock into Rockets offense. We know in the first half going into halftime that we didn't play our best. Defensively. We allowed him to get into the lane. Without contest. We allowed him to hit some threes. What I'll contest are rotations was slow. So when we went to the locker room, we watch some film. And we had conversation right away on what we can do in the second half to get better and be better, and we was able to transfer it into the second round. Last thing I'll ask you about. I know Coach Vogel keeps on telling us That he was going to use the memory of Kobe Bryant to fuel this playoff run and continue to talk to the team about it. How have you channeled that to motivate you through this run through the postseason in this most unique environment? Then today, we just so we make him and his family proud, and that's all it's about anybody's ever step foot and put on the Lakers jersey we hoped would make them proud as well. From Kobe all the way down to everybody's ever played in Los Angeles have been a part of Los Angeles Lakers organization. That's what we're trying to do. It means the tradition here and it's our responsibility when loser draw toe hold out without most responsibility and utmost respect, and, you know, doctor Dr Buss will want as well. Loser draw. This one turned out to be a win for the Lakers by 10. They take a 21 Siri's lead, LeBron finishing with 36 points, 29 of which came in the first half. You heard him touch on the defensive adjustments that the Lakers made at halftime. As well. Then they came out and turned up the intensity on the defensive end Lakers finishing with six blocks Houston had one came from Russell Westbrook late in the game,
Washington, DC - Hogan visits Caroline Co. students on their first day back to school
"On Maryland's Eastern Shore went back to school this morning, Governor Larry Hogan was there to greet them. They were so excited to be back. You could tell they were for the first day of school, the teachers Or excited. Hogan visited an elementary school in Caroline County, where special needs kids air getting in person instruction, while others are learning from home. We got to participate in some zoom classes with teachers and say hi to the kids that were at home learning as well, and they seem to be doing really well too. Hogan used the visit to remind schools without plans for in person learning. We asked them to go back and take another look at that by the end of the first quarter. I think they will go back and do that. John Matthews on w w dot com
Nuggets' Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray lead improved energetic effort to beat Clippers in Game 2
"Yesterday the nuggets lead. wire-to-wire top the clippers tie the series at one game apiece a little surprising sure I mean they got off to a huge lead and held onto the victory lead biggest takeaway from the nuggets game two victory over lic. So many positives take of this from Denver they jump. The clippers gave him the off punch in the mouth from the start, which is to say it was led by their styles, Jamal and nickel Yokich. They got lots of contributions from other guys as well. MILLSAP I thought was good in this game. Gary. Harris Marco Porter Jr. coming off the bench gays in the middle of a lift as well and even rant. Jeremy Grant was their defense I thought was exceptional. There was a several times where the clippers were in the pint and there was two or three Denver Nuggets, contesting shot blocking shots, and really making the clippers feel them in the paint, which is important. But the biggest takeaway for me is we knew the clippers we're GONNA come back. This is a twenty point late in the first half and it. was like in the NBA that never lost especially in the playoffs. The biggest question for me would the nuggets be able to hold onto this game and win it, and there was a crucial moment that minutes ago in the fourth quarter I think it was Po Georgia to three brought to a five point game and that was the sliding doors moment of the game. What would the nuggets through from? And began to our and just show that that first quarter net hop surge was nothing more than like. All right. We don't get swept all would they actually be able to maintain what they've played up to for that point and they did they came out and hit three threes after that and basically stretch the game out and Kinda sealed it from there. You know like it was sort of sent the message that the clippers like we're. Not going away and and again, it wasn't just Murray and Yokich was other guy is contributing and so to me it did sort of say, Oh, I, picked I, think the clippers to win this five. But after watching that performance in the way that they won that wire to wire, I'm a little more now convinced that the the the nuggets can make this series and an an a longer series I still think clip is ultimately win it. But if it goes six or seven, now, I wouldn't be surprised because I just thought that the Denver Nuggets after Guy Wander the first quarter they thought it off well, and then they just Kinda sunk from there and Michael Malone said we need to have better energy for the entire game and they absolutely did last night. So very impressive performance from everyone yokich again was great and so is Mary but really important that those other. Guys contribute and make this more than just a sort of a like a like a run in that first quarter just to get just to get system, they actually sustain that the entire game. So that's what I thought was most important for the nuggets at the something there that they can build on going forward in this
Miami Heat Have Bucks In Serious Trouble Going Into Game 4
"The Milwaukee Bucks 1 15 to 100. To take a three old Siri's lead. On this season's best N ba Certainly by record at least 21 points, 16 rebounds and nine assists. Went 7 12 from the free throw line.

The The Milwaukee Milwaukee Bucks, Bucks, led led by by 12 12 going going into into the the fourth fourth quarter. quarter. And And then then ultimately ultimately listen listen to to this. this. Miami Miami outscored outscored in in Milwaukee Milwaukee in in the the fourth fourth quarter quarter 40 of 13. 42 13 in the fourth quarter. No team has ever come back from being down 30.

Depression, anxiety spike amid outbreak and turbulent times
"Of Americans may be experiencing symptoms of depression during the pandemic. That's a rate higher than during large scale traumas like 9 11 and Hurricane Katrina. From no more Now we're joined Live on the KCBS Ring. Central News Line. By Kathryn Dettman Study author with Boston University School of Public Health. Thanks so much for being with us this afternoon. Thank you for having me, Marty. Well, first. How did you tally these very high rates. Sure. So we found that one quarter of Americans reported depression. And as you know, this represented a threefold increase over what it was before Cove it and third that people with fewer resources were the ones who are more likely to have depression. So who are the people most impacted by depression symptoms and what are these Depression symptoms? So, for example, people with lower income were twice as likely to have depression and among people with the same income but who had left than 5000 and family savings. They were 1.5 times more likely to have depression. How is this different from 9 11 and Hurricane Katrina? These rates are higher than what we have seen in the general population after other large scale trauma like September 11, Turkey and Katrina and the Hong Kong unrest. For example, After September 11th in Manhattan, we found around a 10% prevalence of reported depression symptoms. This is much higher than what we have seen after other traumas.
Butler Scores 40, Miami Heat Top Bucks 115-104 For 1-0 Series Lead
"The Milwaukee Bucks scored forty points in the first quarter. Last night for an eleven point lead in game one of their second round NBA playoff series with. MIAMI. But things fell apart after that and Jimmy. Butler got hot for the heat solder will work against Middleton. Topped out at eight put the three out Kyrie gotta go Mike Goodness Jimmy Butler second. Of the night. It's Mike English sunset and ninety, the ticket Butler scored fourteen of his career playoff high forty points in the fourth quarter in Miami beat Milwaukee one, fifteen, four mostly credits Jimmy I thought he had several if not all of the shots he may tough shots he's capable given credit you made them but. The defense while we can always be better I. think it was a case and making tough shots. Bucks committed nineteen turnovers miss twelve free throws gave up forty two points in the paint and were out rebounded forty, six, thirty, four, Chris Middleton scored twenty eight before fouling out. Brook. Lopez added twenty four while Janas unto. Kubo didn't play as well as we expect Janas had eighteen points, ten rebounds and nine assists but committed six turnovers and missed eight of twelve free throws I want to be more. Obviously you know when you the game is over and you have the the sheet at, you'll see twelve shots you gotta wonder. Why the issue more could have been more aggressive but I think now just tried to make it up playing style was my whole game. You know whether lose you got two bucks didn't have point guard Bledsoe who sat out with a strained right hamstring status for game two tomorrow night is unclear

And Andrew slowly explaining political philosophy is my kink. Glad it is for someone. Thank you good times. And we've got to do the thing we do every week, which is Thomas takes the bar exam. I have no legal training, but I have tempted to take the bar exam, and I'm doing not as badly as you might think. But sometimes very badly depending on which week it is. And let's find out how I did on question. One hundred and twelve oh, no social this firm ever failed the Bar Chen. No kidding. Yeah. And let me say, I'm I'm glad we get to book end with this. Right. Because you said at the beginning of the show that you know, the law is complicated. And we're sort of here to navigate you through that. That's true. But but one of the messages that I love about this show. One of our underlying themes is that if you bring commonsense and pay attention that the law isn't always arcane isn't always indecisive. And I will tell you that particularly when I'm talking to lawyers. But usually when I'm just talking about the show to anybody the first segment, I explained that we do is Thomas takes the bar exam. I love this. I love the fact that what I'm doing is asking you real bar exam prep question. And the folks get to hear you puzzle through that play along and see if you're right or wrong on the air. This is it's my favorite segment of the show. And it's it's a thing that I that I promote the most that that I think really kind of drives home our message that you can't understand this. It doesn't it. It's not all thirteenth century Saxony with that in mind. Here was your question number one hundred twelve this involved a man who was despondent and angry over having lost. His job went to a bar while contemplating suicide had a pistol in his pocket got drunk at the bar, some clown horn and maga- hat next to him was like, well, you know, I think downsizing is important to keep the. Economy strong. Our our our protagonist question. Mark turns over says, hey, buddy. Why don't you shut the hell up the maga- hat wearing guy says it's a free country. I can do whatever I want. And and then the despondent laid off man pulls out the gun shoots maga- hat dead. And then the question is is he guilty of first degree murder second degree murder or manslaughter. And and Thomas you felt that this was a supremely easy question famous last words immediately to d-, you're like this kind of seems like a second degree murder thing. Right. He's there. He's drunk in a bar doesn't really seem like it's deliberation. Even though deliberation can take place in an instant doesn't really seem like manslaughter because you know, he shot the guy so second degree murder that was answered D. And I am happy to. Oh, you answer. D is correct now. Right. You you could not have planned this any better for this episode, right? The the the other answers were a manslaughter because there was a reasonable explanation for his becoming enraged. That's not right. There's no reasonable explanation for becoming enraged. You know, guys just saying stuff, do you? That is not I get to shoot you. Now. Even Donald Trump's American be was first degree murder because deliberation can take place in an instant. That's true. But the drunken anger is typically not the condos goal. Cool deliberation. No. I mean, unless he looked really cool doing it like during it was wearing that mesh see-through outfit from lot awful movies twenty six then maybe any deliberations cool deliberation. Yep. So you successfully saw through that. And that was your second choice answer. And I agree that that was the only one that had a plausible chance via wrecked. See was first degree murder because he contemplated taking a human life before becoming intoxicated. And you said, well, yeah. His own right..

I wanna proposal for how to move quickly on this. So there you go. That's. That's how we're going to go forward. The next step in this process is going to be the government's production of a summary of the status of the documents to Michael Cohen and to President Trump and presumably to Sean Hannity of how many documents are there. How many identify your particular client, how many identify protect particular attorney client privilege, and what's the test? How are we going to go forward and ensure that the attorneys within the DOJ who are potentially prosecuting Michael Cohen do not get to see documents that that shouldn't get to say. And again, I I wanna go back to that bottom. I riley. I'm a lawyer attorney client privilege is super important to me. And I do not want us on the left to race because you know, Cohen is, you know, a fixer scumbag, and we wanna bring down President Trump. I do not want us to race to the point where we are Bligh.

"This seems to me is to be the the obvious the very rational way to go about something like this where you wanna respect attorney client privilege, of course. But you've got a criminal who you've proven to a judge or at least given enough evidence to judge that. Hey, we can't just let this guy. It's like asking I don't know out Capone to decide which evidence to give us or something. It is exactly if I can jump in. It is exactly a callback to our. What was so bad about Watergate up Assode, right? That it was made. Since proposal I to review the tapes himself, and then second to have, you know, read deaf racist Senator John Stennis review, the material. Right. You don't want those materials to be in the hands of the person that you think has likely, but at the same time, it's pretty tyrannical just say now, the government will decide, you know. So they they have a team of people who are disinterested. Parties, I guess, and they can say, okay. This seems to be privileged information. Yup. Or not. That's exactly what makes sense. Okay. So that's the underlying legal basis. There is still pending the request by Cohen, which was joined by Trump to appoint a special master. And let me explain what that is. And what that would do from a strategic perspective. If you're Michael Cohen, the first thing you want to do in this investigation is destroy evidence. Right. So you'd like to be the one in charge of the documents, and what gets turned over you'll lost on that. So your fallback position is. Well, okay. If I can't destroy evidence. I would like to slow this down as much as possible. I would like to delay and obstruct and make it difficult in particular. If you're doing that because you were trying to front for the president. Obviously, you know, there is a clock that can be run out. On the president. So so, and especially trying to get this stuff delayed till after midterms because you know, the more Democrats have run on the midterms the worse. Exactly, right. So a special master is typically in the federal courts, it's a magistrate judge who is not the presiding judge in the case who is then appointed to handle discovery disputes. Right. And again, this is a procedure that I see all the time in my day to day job civil litigation. It's particularly in huge cases. Right. I had a a nine year long insurance coverage case, and we produced millions of documents. And what you don't wanna do is. You don't want to overburden a judge who has five hundred cases on her docket over the course of the year. Right. If all of a sudden now, all of those cases, all of the questions about documents had to go to the. Presiding judge like he'd literally only two percent of cases go to trial now. And it would that would be point zero zero two percent of cases. Right. So you appoint a special master and the special master gets to hear all of the disputes. So as you can imagine if you were to appoint a special master in this case, it would insert a level of bureaucracy in between the government and judge Kimba Wood who is presiding over this matter, and the government would be able to file a ton of these motions get hearings on them, right? The government would you know, the the the special master would have to review the document. It would just it would delay things. Right. And so judge woods order on Monday was for the government to proceed with the use of the team to prepare summaries of the document to upload all of the material into a. A database that that attorneys typically use that will then scan and sort the documents, and you know, be able to tell us so we can we will know of the documents seized by the government, right? How many pages that entails, and what percentage of those documents belong to the three people that have been alleged to have been clients of Michael Cohen, right and they'll have to turn over that database summary database to Cohen's lawyers. Right. And so judge would says after the materials been uploaded, we will know more about the volume in the content of the documents, and we can make a more intelligent choices to whether a team or a special master should be involved in the process of determining..

"What did they know and win? Did they know it essentially? So this kind of comes from a question that Matt Vernon sent us, and it has to do with eighteen USC one thousand one which I remember from previous episodes, Andrew, that's the way you usually cite the loss. That's good. That's a good sign. Matt wanted to know whether or not this could be grounds for because the reason we side to do the segments basically every week there several questions of weight. Well, what about this is this going to be the thing that gets Trump impeached is this going to be the thing? So we'll just do a standard segment on that. Now every week. So how about it Andrew is this the thing that's going to get Trump in peach? So I I like to you this as do you remember the mountain climber on the prices, right? That would yodel and move. But he got to like thirty five he fell off the mountain, right? And maybe try to find that for the intro that back in time everyone already heard but anyway. We'll see maybe they heard that. And they'll be like that. But if you each one of these that, we come up with is just another step up the mountain, and eventually he will fall off the mount, let's let's just hope that the mountain is is only as high as it was on the prices, right? All right. You know, another reference while we're talking about references. We frequently make is clear as Kushner. Play a little clip of where that came from. Like it. There is not it is to make an argument for Jared. Kushner requires you to be either willfully ignorant of law or deliberately of fuss Katori, right? Like that is a clear violation of the anti nepotism statute. You know, this is not as clear as Kushner, but it is certainly the new nuclear Kushner, guys. But it's clear as Kushner that he's violent, but but it's pretty bad. I like how. Yeah. Hashtag clear is. Well, we take ourselves awful seriously on the show. Sometimes too seriously. But other times not very seriously at all. Yeah. This was a very very important segment about a very very important principle of the law. And I think you'll hear us not be able to contain ourselves at that legal principle relieve the subject of production to itself, right? And the way in which that happens is via what we call a taint team. So this. Yeah, this is not an explicit episode. So we're not gonna go through. Be straight faced about are going to be. Strict legal terms actual legal legal dorks. And what you do is that what you to issue put another layer of lawyers that are not working on the Michael Cohen criminal investigation in between the documents and the prosecutors. I can't help them. It's okay. It's the team is you're saying it's a team that's in-between shoe like the dead lawyers. Right. It serves to separate the players who are prosecuted Michael cola from the know which end of the eight show head. All right. Totally normal legal things were making the privilege determination. And seriously. You do this all the time that used to be called? This is now no longer a remotely appropriate term it used to be called a Chinese wall. So I guess going from Chinese wall to taint team seems more more beleaguered corrective. Yeah, immature joke is ways better than racism. So it was like all right close enough. And I think I'm with them on that. Right. So like the futurama joke where they changed Uranus. To your rectum. Exactly, exactly. So so right now, there are lawyers busily at work who have nothing to do with the investigation who do not care about the substance of the document in any way whatsoever who are reviewing documents to determine whether they are on face privileged. Right. And they go take team. Yes. And they will apply the standard test, right? Which is not just is a lawyer copied on this because we know they're Coen's documents. They all are it is does the material seek legal advice from a from an identified client. And if it does then they will prepare what's called a privilege, log, which is an excel spreadsheet that just has columns for the author the recipient any copies, the subject matter title of the document when it was issued, you know, basic information like that.

Article seven section one which says towards the goal of respecting our creator in heaven the lawful and traditional nation of Israel remains fully sovereign and the king of his Israel may choose whether to comply with this constitution at any given time and space and space is that I've pretty days Israel does not have a king. I maybe this is like a crazy minister isn't the end time thing. Yeah. I know I'm pretty sure they don't have king. So that was also neat. Oh, those were the days Andrew. So what what happened to us over these past few? Yeah. Look like, so if if if a certain thing had not happened, we would just be continuing to put out, you know, the occasional goofball sovereign citizen episode. And then we would do deep dives the kind we, you know, we still trying to for example, don't play clip from it. But I I wanna plug. I was really proud of the episode that we did on PG and the California wildfire was episode two forty one I told you in that episode things looked real bad for PGA and a couple of days later, they announced that they were declaring bankruptcy. So yeah, we would be doing all that except that through bizarre. Macintoshes we manage to elect a criminally insane game show host as president who is looting the public treasury. And so. A week into the Trump administration. I'm not making this up a week into the Trump administration was when we got our first question of when can we impeach this guy already? And so I answered that in episode forty five and this is this is probably the number one question, we get about the show these days because we play the little clip of iota mountain and people will say what what on earth is iota mountain. And and what does it mean? Well, this is this is what it me play the clip. Yeah. The birth of yellow mountain here. It is. Because people have got to know whether or not their president's. So you're not aware of any contact during the election. How many times you have to answer? This question can you shit rooms? I know you have to get up and ask a question. So put Russia is a ruse. Well, I'm not a crook. All right time for own new segment you excited for a new segment. Andrew I am very excited. Let's hope the person we paid to do this kind of stuff aka me made a nice intro for us. This is a new segment that I think we could do every week. It should be pretty easy. And then it'll be applicable for roughly two years in my in my best guess, but we'll see how the new segment is how close is Trump to being impeached. How how much longer can he possibly go? So today's version of that has to do with Flynn everybody'll probably know, of course, we record ahead of time. So around this time that we're recording is when we found out that national security adviser Flynn has has resigned been kind of made to resign. And there's a question over whether or not he broke the law. Aw. Whether or not Trump knew what he knew there's all that stuff. There's going around again more drawing more similarities to to Nixon..

It does not tell us who the president is the the head of the work of the earth. Government is the. And I'm sorry. I have to say this article two section one the executive power of the earth government shall be vested in chief caretaker. The chief caretaker show hold office for term of four years votes to elect an executive may be submitted a time during the spring of the appropriate year in the four year cycle. The chief caretaker shall publish all earth government laws in the languages used by the nation's so no, there's no president in this document. I don't. There is an e b there will be a president who sold job. It is to decide whether intelligent extraterrestrial aliens are political refugees. But and And you you might. might type I mean, there's a lot of the plane wins with nothing else to do in an article court.

And then they say this is the doctrine of capital dementia. Maxima the Latin phrase capita did emiss- dementia maxima, and it means the maximum loss of status. Okay. And as it turns out, if you look up that Ladan, it doesn't deed mean the maximum loss of status, but the the slate of hand that they're engaging in here is it doesn't have anything to do with capital letters. They're just saying like capital letters capita side of sound similar and capita. Minimum maximum means maximum loss of status.

If a lawyer says, you know, I charged three hundred ninety five dollars an hour. And I s to mate that this task will take five hours, a say, okay. We'll can I get a cap that says you're not gonna charge me more than two thousand dollars which would be about five hours on the end of that.

So there are people who believe that they are that they are sovereign citizens, which is to say they are not legally bound to the government of the United States for various reasons. I wanna talk about the most hilarious reason why they think they're not bound. But but so in other words, they think that they reside in the United States, but they remain a sovereign nation unto themselves, and so they kind of have this notion of engaging in diplomacy. Right. Where if if they do if they say the wrong thing, they will accident Alie subject themselves to the jurisdiction of the United States. And so if they don't right if they if they avoid saying that than the United States has no jurisdiction over them, and they don't have to pay their taxes. And in addition to that like, there's there's some.

But that's you know, that's why the shows here to try to to try to call out when when people are being drifters. And as you heard the clip Andrew Andrew called, Jill Stein out south there, you go. Yeah. And and look if you were now suppose, you're on the far left. Now, you're saying I get it. You guys are just you know, pro Clinton Democrats. So you're anti Trump, but you're also happy to go after Jill Stein. Well, no, we we have a bunch of episodes. The the most hilariously titled one is episode fifty nine which was make America great, again, a defense Trump in which we debunked a lot of bad news coming out of the left, and in particular, I kind of this this video from from Robert Reich who former Clinton labor secretary somebody who I respect. I mean, you know, just and and I think he's I think he's too hyperbolic with with his attacks on Trump. And I think the things he saying do not stand up to legal scrutiny in particular in this case. So so here's here's. Yeah. I have to say if I were a member of a democratically held house of representatives right now and those were the grounds for impeachment that were drawn up before me. I don't know that I could vote for that. I I would not want. I mean, look it's tough to say I trust in the American people not to elect a Callow moron as president. But the idea that president could be impeached for the things he says about his predecessor, I I wouldn't want to set that precedent, right? Like, I know how I felt as a democrat in two thousand eight and I and certainly the Mitch McConnell will take it further the next time around by the way once he once that impeachment having it'll be looked at the president looked at somebody the wrong way. And then. Started this. Yeah. I mean, if you if you impeach President Trump for saying bad things about his predecessor. I mean, that's essentially what this comes down to if you say that constitutes a high crime or misdemeanor then. Yeah. I would be very very concerned about what you know. President. Elizabeth Warren is going to do in twenty twenty you know, January twenty twenty one in describing the mess that she's going to inherit from President Trump. Right. So, you know. Yeah. Look, I I agree presidents ought not to to do this at the same time. Okay. It is a little weird. I know it's something we've already talked about. But it's so hard to grasp with the fact that Trump can just accuse his predecessor of a little crime like actually fabricate a crime that that that Obama did. And there's no consequences other than well sooner or later after he's ruined. The world then will vote amount of you know of office.

"So documents clearly marked confidential it's your job to put them through shredder, incinerator, whatever instead of nam gonna take them home and throw minute dumpster, so already from just these first two cases, you're gonna see the basic fact pattern that comes up time and time again, in these cases, which is to say somebody has documents. They're clearly marked confidential they know they're confidential they wind up in their possession. Either intentionally or unintentionally, and then they do something stupid. Like, yeah. I'm in a desk drawer or put him in a dumpster. They do something where they know they need to return the documents. But instead of returning the documents, they do something else. All right. But are we question from acquiring mines Andrew are? We just lefty Shiels that will just you know, truth is relative days. We're just obviously gonna be on one side of things, you know, all the time, and we're we're just going to. The democrat line on everything. Well, I am. But fortunately, you you're no hack. No, look, one of the things that's really really important to I think to to both of us is to police our own house, and to make sure that you were bringing the same level of critical skills to a right wing or neutral piece that you would bring to a left-wing piece. So I bought him. We don't have to go for the New York Times b s both sides kind of thing. Yeah. I think that's what's great about. We, you know, because we don't have some weird antiquated sense of like journalistic practices where you constantly both sides in everything. And like well as you have to just report what he side thinks. And then down the middle it there. I love the way we're able to do it on this show. Which is we still absolutely will call out win the left is wrong, especially when it's clear law thing that injures like now, they're just wrong about this. But that doesn't at all mean that we take a bow sides approach or that the, you know, the left is just as bad as a right there. I think we're we're able to easily walk that line in a way that that I very comfortable with that make sense. Well, thanks. I appreciate the I still get hate mail over episode five which in which I came out and I call. Called Jill Stein Griffin and a con artist. And I said this was this was the night that she announced that she was raising funds to get a recount, then the recount was going to overturn the election in Wisconsin. Michigan Pennsylvania was gonna make Hillary Clinton president. And yeah, why don't we had some record of what you said back nine Ryan. Why don't you play a clip? I'm talking about merely motivation and merely incentive like and just logically. If there was something there, the first person who would wanna capitalize is Hillary. But I was gonna let you take the actual legal version of well at at, but okay. But this this is still an opening arguments theme, right? The the law often validates your commonsense. Notions. Right. And so yes, as a as a common sense notion, we think if you are the person that are that is hurt. Right. Hillary Clinton than the person who should be filing. The lawsuit should be Hillary Clinton, and that then becomes incorporated in the notion of standing by the idea that you know, courts don't issue advisory opinions, and they don't allow you to sue on somebody else's behalf. Right. The ideas if you have a right that is to be vindicated. The let that person bring that. Lawsuit. If they choose not to well the courts aren't going to get involved. And that's you know, that's a a check and balance inherent in the judicial system that goes all the way back to the founding of the Republic. Right. It it it what differentiates the judiciary from the other two branches of government is that they act only defensively they cannot proactively say boy, the seems wrong here and go ahead. Anybody can come on in. And we're just gonna say what what what to happen..

"It wasn't settlement agreement. It was being reported. As does it matter if Donald Trump signed it. All of those things were utterly insignificant in comparison to what stormy Daniels established. And and ultimately, you know, what set in motion, I think potentially what could take down Donald Trump as president, right, Michael. Let me take a second to to echo that. Because I I've been trying out a new podcast. Yeah. I I'm I'm a sucker for New York Times podcast. I guess, and I've been listening to the argument where you know, the some of the opinion columnists argue about stuff on there. And the to the point where I think what's amazing about the stormy Daniels thing as you were way ahead of it. And it's so significant that, you know, Rostow fit the conservative columnist. He there was a they were kinda debating what might, you know, take down. I think there are debating the question was how important is this Russia stuff like how much do we know about the the Russia's stuff with with Trump and conservative Rostow fit said and. And this is his opinion. But but I think it's interesting. He said, yeah, I don't think the Russia stuff anything that we found is impeachable. You know, we might argue with that. But this is his opinion. However, I think the stormy Daniels stuff is and that's coming from a conservative. And I I think that shows how important this was. And if you go back and look at the dates how far ahead of it Andrew was. And I I think it's it's pretty incredible. And just before anyone wonders we also clarified later on. We're not gonna play it or anything. But the lawsuit that got thrown out where stormy Daniels may have to pay Trump's legal fees. That's a different totally different lawsuit. Yet didn't a lot of people reported. Like, this means all of the Daniels thing is over now, totally different thing. Yeah. I I don't I think a lot of folks no us from stormy Daniels. So, you know, maybe we don't we don't need to play clip from that. I do wanna play clip from one of our first deep dives to really go viral. And garner. A lot of attention. That was episode thirteen Hillary Clinton's damned emails, and I was really proud of of what we did in that episode. I kinda wish the Hillary Clinton campaign had done this. But but what we did was go through every single published decision on the disclosure of confidential documents to debunk the claim that was circulating by by. Then just pundit route Rudy Giuliani that, you know, lock her up. This is if Hillary Clinton's last name, we're Smith she'd be bussed in rocks in Leavenworth, and and that's not true. And and and I I really like this this small clip that talks about what that statute was actually meant to to prosecute. All right play. Brian USB Gafni nineteen Eighty-three same. Court air force staff. Search and he was a guy who was in the chain of command. And he was required to destroy confidential materials. Can all right instead what he did was took them home with him and threw them into a dumpster by his house, and because this is nine hundred eighty three and we were not all helicopter parents in nineteen Eighty-three cancer playing dumpsters and bunch of kids were playing in the dumpsters. They found the documents. They pulled them out. They show them to their parents parents called the air force. And the air force said what on earth doing my basic contention was this is a quote from the case. I love it. So I have to read it might basic intention was at the time when I was to do destruction. I really had wanted to be home. The court notes. The reason for the cues priorities that his wife was pregnant with his first trial..

"The between floors in the elevator pitch that I say to people, and I really do. This is look if you like. Rachel, maddow. Then you'll like our show. I think that puts a great, and I I would agree. I think that one thing I've learned from you over the the years of doing this show is that the law is very complicated. There's a reason that you have to kind of, you know, get educated in order, it's the law and oftentimes not always. But but more than half the time the way a lot of the media covers major cases major breaking Legal News the way, they covered is wrong. And it's unfortunate. But it's I guess it's good for us. It's job security for us. Because there I have just been there's no end to how impressed I have been with Andrew you have a job that not too many people can do because you're able to break these things down in a way where sometimes and there's two categories we're going to see with these clips sometimes it's, hey, here's a thing. We should be. Just totally alarmed about that we aren't because people haven't noticed it cough. Stormy daniels. You know, kind of thing. Nobody's notices we should be. But sometimes there's something that everybody is alarmed about and panicking about and and Andrew will say, no, actually, you shouldn't be as worried about this as you might be. And I think that you've overwhelmingly been right in in those kinds of interpretations, and those kinds of stories, and of course, if you ever get anything wrong, you're the first to admit it with an Andrew was wrong segment. So that's why you can rely on the show. I really do tell people. I'm so proud of the show. And it's because it's not me. It's you that if you wanna make sense of what's going on. And the the fact that that the news these days with the Trump administration so much of it requires legal analyst a good legal analysts who who doesn't have. Any other agenda? But wanting to explain it to you in a way that that actually make sense. It really requires that. And I I think there's so much perspective that you add to these stores. So I think we should start off with some stuff that we are really proud of. And personally, I'm very proud of two Major Andrew Torres was right kind of accomplishments. And I think we should start with stormy Daniels. Well, you know that that was a pretty big episode for us it it did one hundred thousand downloads. I was really excited about the the stormy Daniels episode, and I guess I don't know if I've told the story on the air yet. But but what happens is throughout the week as I'm preparing for the show. I will compile stories and people will compile them for me. Right. So we've mentioned we've thanked some of the people who do that Deborah Smith, Ashley Smith and Theresa Gomez in particular. And so what I do is. I keep them in a little directory in in my inbox just a little opening arguments directory, and this was the first weekend March, I was visiting my parents at their retirement community in Florida. And and I believe Debra who sent me the the fairy first stormy Daniels story, which I had just filed off in a directory of okay while look at this when I get some downtime, and maybe that will make a good a or c segment write a little book ending segment smaller. It's it's got a Trump angle to it. It's it's you know, maybe has the potential to be an amusing story because of the porn angle. And then I opened up the first story. And what I always do when I get a story is make sure that I can find the underlying court documents. Right. And and I pulled up the documents. And and and that's when I called you. And I said Thomas we got a record on this. And we have to record on it now because everybody is focused on a question that doesn't have the slightest thing to do with why this is a big deal. Right. And that every aspect of how that was being reported right was being reported as a nondisclosure agreement..

Because he yeah. No. He just just absolutely crapped all over your transformer dreams. And you know, it's part of the fun dynamic here. We have. We are celebrating two hundred fifty episodes of opening arguments. And of course, that's not counting a billion lot awful, movies, and QNA's and all that other stuff is just two hundred and fifty official episodes, but wasn't accomplishment. Andrew give yourself. I'm not over there. But give yourself Pat on the back. Long only if you do likewise for its I'm I'm really really excited about this. I mean, we we started August of twenty sixteen. So, you know, this is we're heading into our third year of doing the show. It's it's been successful beyond. You know, my wildest dreams, and I love I love doing the show, man. I really really do. And I'm super excited that we've done a quarter of a thousand up associates. Wow. Wow. That's that's crazy talk. But apparently, that's what the numbers say. And we're going to celebrate. Here's what we're gonna do. We're doing a bit of a kind of a combination of a best of and like a advertisement for the show in a way. It's like we wanted to go through and find some of Andrew's best moments best predictions. You know, good times on the show. Interesting things that happened. But also, if it might be a way if anyone ever asks you. Or if you're trying to what you should do as a good listener spread the word about the show. And people wonder like who are we what's this about episode two fifty might be a good one to start with just to send them. Here's here's a little catch up. Here's here's what some of the highlights are now, obviously, this is of course, going to be just a grossly inadequate in terms of two hundred and fifty usually sixty to ninety minute episodes. You know, there's a lot that we've gone through, but this'll be a little taste of what we're about. So if you wanna share the show out with people, this might be a good way to say, hey, here's what these guys are all about. Now, of course, since we value our patrons so much, and we always want to make sure that you've got enough content, and that we're not, you know, ever derelict in our duty to provide you with great. Oh and Andrew goodness. Where also releasing a patron only bonus episode that is a conversation. Andrew had with Bryce blanket Nagel that has some. I'm great new law stuff for you. So I didn't we didn't wanna feel like we were ripping anybody off with the best of. So it's up to you know, if you're a longtime listener of you heard every episode of the show, you know, it's up to you. Whether you wanna listen to this one because it will have clips of old shows, but we're also going to talk about them and talk about the show. So it's up to you. And maybe you're somebody who's like I've heard every episode. I know everything about the show hop on over to the patron feet. And catch the bonus extra. Andrew did. Yeah. Ed at look we're going to go back, you know, three years here. So I don't know when I went I was excited going through the clips and that was me talking. So hopefully, hopefully, everyone enjoys it. But now, I thought it was a great introduction Thomas. All right. So if you're new to the show, maybe you've had this shared with you question. Andrew what is this show all about? So the way I viewed this show, and I'm curious how you answer that question Thomas.

"Read this on SP nation, folks. Random. You don't read this on it row bible for not allowed them pro or, but Vars still yell, only get from Chris Wesseling and NFL dot com. And I, I should note that Aaron Rodgers even though their offense did not play very well as a unit last week against the bills moving better, which is a good sign that perhaps his legs are getting back up to speed, move to number four, Alvin Kamara running back New Orleans Saints, Mark. He is super impressive this season because this is the year, the first quarter of the season. He did it on his own and the saints than skip a beat back there. He can do it all. And I, I guess I with this whole pull the player from the offense thing. I would struggle a little bit. If you pull Alvin Kamara from this offense, you still have what they've had all along, which is drew Brees and the parts around him. But Alvin Kamara to me is such a different player than they've ever had. But if you pulled drew Brees and you put in some other no name or what happens, you've got to MVP candidates on that offense for a good reason. But to me. Alvin Kamara is doing things that no other running back in football can do right now, and he's doing it no matter who else is on the field and he's a special player and they know it the the touchdown that he scored the balance that he showed last week on the goal line. I think that's what really separates him is that he can be that that receiver essentially running routes and beating linebackers legacy. But it can also you could also with stand linebackers crunching him on the goal line and keep his balance. That's why I call him an alien like he has like a balance that I, it's hard to measure that, but it's better than any running back. I can remember. I'm just glad he was born when he was. He's probably this era. I was the newer that could you. You mentioned his goal on abilities. Do you believe that now that Mark Ingram is backed that they'll have a similar role to less season, or do you think Kamara is kind of the lead dog here as opposed to a one? Two punch? I think he was the lead dog by the end of last year, and I don't think it's real. Has to change too much because he's only run the ball fifty six times this year. You probably won't get games like last week where he had nineteen Carey's as often, but they've been pretty conservative with him running. He's caught the ball MAURICE third in reception. So on pace to break Matt forte, single season record for receptions by running back. He's going to go over one hundred less. He gets injured. It's a great problem for them to have to figure that out the top three Khalil Mack linebacker bears. I think everyone has been tracking. This guy's season gets traded from the raiders and has just become a monster. He's on pace for twenty sacks and thirteen forced fumbles and his is the face of that defense right now. And then you have Jared Goff at number two, getting some love. This has been, it's been funny to Jared Goff narrative in this NFL season the first two weeks. You had the after the second week you had the gay manager narrative Roldan. Now the last two weeks when he's been lighting it up, it's like the totally opposite side of it where it's like Jerry gobs actually a superstar guys. He's closer to that list. You'd have to be blind to watch Jared Goff the last two weeks and think that he's a game manager when he's making what Jim Murray once said about Dan Marino double keyhole throws not just putting it through one keyhole but to keep the through Turkey wholesome and then through a Turkey Lang. So many holes putting the ball right on his receivers, hands, twenty thirty forty fifty yards..

"Chiefs, eight, Todd Gurley, running back Rams seven tyreek hill west. You've been singing the praises of that wide receiver all season thought he might even be a little higher this list. Yeah, originally had them higher and then he kinda disappeared for stretches of the last two games. I do think he's very valuable for what he does. Even when he's not touching the ball that he really opens the spacing for this offense and they have as much spacing. Any offense in the league. And I think that's why I think he has a Randy moss like affect because of his speed and he and that's why Alex Smith was an MVP candidate is one of the reasons why Patrick Mahomes going to be an MVP candidate because Atari exhales tyreek hills presence out. And there's no other number one type of receiver that I guess maybe there are, but they don't make plays like tyreek hill where when they needed to play in the punt return game to be made the other night, that's when you put tyrod kill back there. He's only he's only returned a handful of punched this year. In three of them have gone for big distances. He set them up to start making that comeback. The other one other MVP note. Like I think Zeke Elliot, no matter what he does probably faces a little bit of an uphill climb, even though is on the team that gets more celebration than any other team combined it because if they go seven and nine or six and ten or they don't make the playoffs. Again, if you look at the way the MVP voting happens nine out of ten times that are attached to a high flying winning team. I have even more respect for Zeke Elliot through the first four weeks that I've. I've had in the past because he's doing this. He's he's showing this year. Certain guys will disappear running backs will disappear when they don't have quite the cast that they need around him and he's still bad ass right now, even with the Cowboys kind of going uphill on offense. He's a great guy to think about what would the team would be like without him, they'd be terrible like, no, I'd be going for the fan. Fairly. The Rams would be fine without Todd Gurley. They would figure it out. The Cowboys would be one in fifty, be hot mess. The play that won that game. Other than the field goal of course, is a girl Zico down the sideline and taking a ball over over shoulder and bringing and not a lot of running backs can make that play. Let's move to number six, Aaron Rodgers. And number five drew Brees so two quarterbacks to mainstays to future hall of famers still getting it done. Yeah, I wanted to point out that breeze missed a couple of touchdowns in week two, but is otherwise been just about perfect. He didn't have the greatest game about against the giants, but he's still completing about seventy six percent of his passes which would shatter his own record for a single season seventy six, yes, insane and Aaron Rodgers. I mean what he did week one the largest fourth quarter comeback in the ninety eight year nine ninety eight year history of the Packers was amazing. And to me, like, I think. Some of the prettiest throws of the season have been dropped by Packers wide receivers, including a pair off one foot with just a flick of the wrist that were perfectly placed in devante Adams, hands and drama, Allison's hands in the end zone and the red zone last week. And this game should have been way better than twenty two to nothing in the Packers, like a seasoned bullfighter out of a Hemingway novel. Yeah, sort of went to the Bank twice on that.

"He wants to give him to his next team essentially in it's not a terrible idea to take off some time in the middle of his career. You just shouldn't do it while you're on a team like this. Moving on this is suspension return week, a host of players. Many of them. Important players to their teams are back inaction after missing the four weeks of the season either due to personal conduct policy violations or the drug policy violation. So here's a list and it's a, it's a, it's a, it's a team that could take on the graybeards players here, patriots wide receiver. Julian Edelman, you're excited about that. Ricky Hollywood, I'm sell excited. You love that man, saints running saints, running back then control Ingram, Bengals linebacker manti as Bertha. CT Cowboys defensive tackle David Irving, Robert turban of colts, Jimmy Smith of the ravens. Darryl Worley of the raiders a lot of big time players back in action was, yeah, I was looking at this list to see who the best player is, and I think it's probably Jimmy Smith, but the ravens defense has done pretty well without him. Julian Edelman might be the most needed player on this list. Because the patriots just haven't been able to move the ball through their wide receivers this year, Thomas Davis will be back soon. The Panthers had the by weeks, right back in a week. That's a big addition. But Jimmy Smith to me is the one that stands out because the ravens right now are the hardest team to pass on in the league already. What you're adding a number one cornerback to a team that's the hardest to pass on in a league where everyone can pass. That's pretty like John was kind of feel bad for him. Grand Caro probably get less snaps Marlin Humphries playing too well to to lose any snaps that Robert turban. I never would have thought that the colts needed him so desperately, but he should come in and start immediately. I like David Ervine coming back alongside DeMarcus, Lawrence against the Texans offensive line on Sunday night. One of the Cowboys defensive ends will be suspended by noon tomorrow. No doubt gas, the there has to be one at, I think Fontes perfect to four Bengals team that has been destroyed by the run weeks in a row. They miss Paul Gunter their defensive coordinator. It's been. On a quiet story that their defense is way worse, especially their their linebackers and they're secondary than they were compared to a year ago. Just remember, don't get too comfortable with Monday's perfect on the field till gets right, no doubt about it. But I mean, we'll see your forty a flying spirit lodge on his first academic year.

Last Thursday night against the Vikings. He struggled again, missing two, three field goal temps. Excuse me, miss two of three since taking over for Greg legs. Arline who's got that injury, but he missed one on Thursday night that that would assaulted the game away was a bad miss on a short kick, and you had a feeling it was over for Sam, and now it is so Kiera Santos assigned.
