Fresh update on "players association" discussed on Get Up!
"Regardless of how many players do or don't test positive from this point forward and in the event that they are able to contain it to this it remains the League's preference who still play the game this weekend. Yes. But obviously, contingencies are being discussed including a Monday night game. Tuesday. Night game and of course, moving into later in the season if that's what makes the most sense but the most important thing was to get the test results back figure out where that stood and then work off of that and you were told us. Earlier today that you spoke to someone within the Titans Organization. Yesterday who told you, he was tested three times yesterday. So they are testing regularly and frequently yes there's no question about the league wants to make sure look the NFL has the money right I mean they can. They can test as much as they want and they're doing that and again beyond that when someone test positive when someone has symptoms, they have procedures in place to isolate and contain, and that is really the most important thing because the testing only gives you information it's what you do with the information and so far so far. So good from the NFL standpoint on this I think that when it maybe the best. Thing I can say about the way they've handled to this point is that yesterday when this story first broke, which was right after we finished it up before I went over to do the radio show my first reaction was one of surprise because I thought to myself. Oh, here's something that maybe we had almost forgotten was going to be the reality, but this is going to be the reality of the entire NFL right and I don't think people I talked to around the league they were surprised but I think a little bit like you like it had been going so well that people maybe let themselves forget that this was coming but at some level of everyone involved in the NFL. Knew that this was coming at some point and would happen and the question is, how do you deal with one other quick thing you brought this up earlier that they were multiple players from the Las Vegas Raiders were at a party, a charity function for Darren Waller's charity and they were seen at this party which was indoors without masks interacting with other people without masks. What does the League do in a situation like that? There were negotiations during the League and the Players Association on what the penalties would be for what they call reckless behavior, which this would fit under with regard to covid you can't get fined for a first offence, the union fought against that so I think. I have it somewhere and stacks of paper this. There's a warning system in place, and so they'll receive warnings and I think it would be up to the team to decide you know, do you have them back and if so to what extent can the interact with teammates they have to figure all that I was nine again, this is a story that will develop as the week goes on Dan Grazziano with the very latest and we. Will keep you posted here on ESPN throughout the entirety of the day. In the meantime let's put some football back into the football conversation and can I bring Ryan Clark back I'm sorry being told perhaps we don't have the time for it. Okay. Let's do it there. He is Ryan Clark with us here are seat is time for your our rankings and I'm gonNA give you the floor who are the five best teams in football right now. Listen. We start at number five get your terrible towels out I'm going to the Pittsburgh steelers and his team played well on defense but we still haven't seen defense from last year. Would you look at Juju Smith Show? Johnson who sustained a little injury last week and also this run game this team is three and no. Right now they're coming along and I expect them to keep getting better. It's not that to eighteen that thought they were greening, but I really feel like the. Pittsburgh steelers in this defense was been Rob Burger being healthy can make a good run down the stretch this season and really when you look at team. To play the Kansas, city chiefs, they are bill perfectly to do that, and so for me, Pittsburgh comes in at number five at number four listen. If you're the Seattle Seahawks, you're a twelve you have to be happy about this team you gotta be happy about your MVP Russell Wilson it doesn't matter what happens with this defense who they are playing Russell Wilson finds ways to make plays and win games and that. Is. What you need for him that's been.

Fresh update on "players association" discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"Welcome to the Peter King podcast. And all my gosh what a week it's been. And what are we continues to be week? Three was nutty week four might be absolutely crazy. For many reasons, and that's one of the reasons why this podcast is a little longer than usual I had no intention whatsoever by midday Tuesday of having three guests on the podcast but events transpired. Here we go. So we're GONNA start off with. Allen. Sills the NFL's chief medical officer. Obviously he's in the news because the Tennessee titans have eight positive tests and by the time you hear this. On, Wednesday. Morning September thirty there maybe more. But as of Tuesday night when I take with Dr Allen Sills the Tennessee Titans had the first little mini outbreak of the year in the national. Football. League I'll talk to him about what this means for the immediate future for both the titans and from the National Football League then will talk to one of the most interesting people in the NFL is name is Ryan Fitzpatrick quarterback of the Miami Dolphins. He had a great win on Thursday night in. Jacksonville. I. Just really like Ryan Fitzpatrick and. Not, I'm not saying he's the best quarterback in the NFL but I'm saying he's one of the most interesting people in the NFL. He played great to get the dolphins off the Schneide. So we're GONNA talk to Ryan Fitzpatrick about many things and wait to hear what he has to say about his time with the New York jets. And then finally. I'm GonNa Talk to Bruce Greg Hausky who is a tape analyst and basically a greater for pro football focus PF, which is everybody who watches football who knows football they study every player and every play in the NFL. We'll talk to Greg Hausky about some of the quarterbacks in the NFL this year who are newsworthy most notably, Carson Wentz and what in the world is wrong with the franchise quarterback if he still is of the Philadelphia Eagles. and. So the podcast is so rich in thick and chewy and involve this week that I'm not GonNa do a big intro to the pot but there is one thing that I did WanNa talk about and and it's I wanNA talk about Josh Allen quarterback of the Buffalo Bills. So in my job I try to do stories basically each week that I think a really interesting in Josh Allen after two weeks I said you know this guy is having a good year so far let's see what happens against the rams in week three obviously played. Great. Made some huge throws got a pretty fortunate pass interference call on fourth down in the last minute that really helped them win but be that as it may. Josh Allen is playing so great, and after the game I talked to him actually Mike Florio and I got him on sort of a conference call and we were talking to him. And what really really impressed me. About Josh Allen was that I wanted him to take a victory lap. You know his completion percentage is up fifteen points from his first two years in the NFL and I wanted to take victory lab. See I told you I could do and everything like that and you know what he said instead he said something I thought was really really cool. He said Hey I am a said excuse my language. I am pissed that we blew this big lead because they had a huge lead. In this game and I just thought you know what? That is really what I want to hear out of my quarterback. I, don't want him take bios after weeks three. I WANNA. Hear Him. Say Look if we don't give this thing cleaned up right here. We're going to be in trouble when the Games really really count. So that's my little mini Josh Allen Anecdote we're GONNA, get to Dr Allen Sills the NFL's chief medical officer, and then our other two guests and I hope you could hang in for the whole pod because this is one of the most interesting ones I've had in quite some time. Here's my conversation with Alan. Sills. The NFL's chief medical officer. Obviously as we record this Tuesday night. You've had a very busy day the Tennessee titans in Minnesota. Had busy days. This is really about the first time that after two pristine weeks and one week that There was one positive tests with the Atlanta Falcons that there seems to be a potential for. something that would really alter the landscape three a players on the Tennessee titans and five officials of the Tennessee Titans. have. Tested positive after a Monday test test results came back on Tuesday, and now as we are here Tuesday night, how does this story stand? Well I think as you reported feeder, we have received those positive test results in we've done exactly what are protocols set out to do, which is that we've done contact tracing for all those individuals As you know, we closed facilities for boats, titans end the Vikings today meaning we send everyone home players, coaches, and staff members. We've done deep cleanings of both of those facilities but now we have this additional tests that have been done. We've also done point of care tests on all of the. Close context that were identified. So we went through the contact tracing. We went through the additional testing. We've done the deep cleaning the sterilization in. Now, we'll wait to get another round of results back tomorrow morning, Wednesday morning to see what else we learn. So we've spent the day gathering that data and I might add going over all that data with our epidemiology, public health or infectious disease experts our partners at the NFL Players Association. So the one interesting piece of news I think that is. Different than what has been reported is that all eight test results for the Tennessee Titans. The three players, five club officials, slash coaches, They're not all a symptomatic. There is at least one player who is symptomatic in at least one other who symptomatic does that make any difference right now in how you examined these. Really, doesn't make a difference Peter as far as contact tracing in our in our testing efforts on on everybody else in the team environment where the differences come into play is is obviously the management of those people who are infected and we do have one protocol for people who are symptomatic another for those that are asymptomatic. So that's really the only difference as far as is letting them wasting the team as far as testing all the close contacts doing the tracing, doing this cleaning in the sterilization that there's really no impact or whether they are symptomatic Grayson dramatic. You know as I look at this story right now I, think it's probably more surprising than in the first two weeks of this season, the two, thousand, four, hundred, sixty players that. None of them tested positive. Then one in week three and now apparently three. In Week Four. So what does this? About how the NFL is doing testing and what does it say about the response from the teams in the players? while. I. Think we said from the start Peter. This is going to be hard meaning that as long as this disease is endemic in our society, we expect that we're going have exposures. We just we can't have wouldn't none of us can avoid it if it's endemic in our community no matter how careful we try to be and we've also said it's hard because it.
Inside the BLAST Restructure
"Blasts saying corona has hit our bank account a little bit. We gotTA restructure this if we want to really make it beneficial for the long haul. So what they're doing is moving forward, they will be increasing the participation fees paid two teams and reducing the prize money again. The I feel like this was kind of lost in the tweet because their initial tweet didn't really explain very well, the total sum paid by blast will remain identical. Okay. So I think that's important at the end of the day to realize that however the kicker here. Is the players aren't necessarily seeing that payout for participation. They see a lot of times in their contracts, the prize money. So you're taking away prize money to give it to direct payout to the ORG which you're like okay. Well, what's the big deal? It's all going to the same place not necessarily because pending on your contract pending on the Org again they only give you your pay right they give you what you agreed for on a payment and the prize money. So the double whammy here is that they failed to consult the counter. Strike Professional Players Association the CS. On this manner question for you why do they have to do that? That's a very good question which I'm glad you brought it up because I always every time this comes up in the world of counterstrike with. Like the CS PPA. Up We were not consulted about this we will be speaking with them behind closed doors blah blah, blah no one here heard about this at what point do they? Do you think they call an emergency meeting and say guys do people even know were around? Like do they like and I've said this before I feel like they have lost their own way whereas before it came out, it was, hey, we wanna look out what's best for the players while also working with tournament organizers and or gigs. To figure out what's best for like the system right now while then it's kind of turned into well, no, we feel like it should just be this way and we're going to create our own rankings because we don't like the way they do it You know things like that. I? Guess. You know perfect player union world. Yes. You would consult the players if you're going to change the payout. However if they didn't need you to start it, why would they consult you to change it? I'm probably GONNA take like a approach on this that if any players listening, I apologize ahead of time but like in a way what Henry g did by releasing the salary information I, say Henry Cloud Nine as the cloud nine decision right team decision to release salary? Information. Like you're not gonNA get a ton of sympathy from me at least when it comes to a little bit more money going into the owners pockets because what I see like again, this is one hundred percent my point of view I. don't even know if you agree with this what? I what I see in counterstrike right now is a game that is getting to this Odd Breaking Point doesn't mean the game's going to go away or die or nothing like that. I'm just saying it's at a point where. There's just this top end were just really top heavy in the fall off to me is is fairly massive when it comes to the landscape or the overall ecosystem of counterstrike, we're not seeing a ton of new teams invest into counterstrike. We've talked to team owners that have said it's a bad investment other than getting your name out there like if you're willing if you're willing to put in the money to be one of the top five. Great, it's good recognition by kind of beyond that. We see several team owners taking cheaper. Pats just to stay. Around in counter strike, but not necessarily the compete at the highest level because they know. To do that, it's millions of dollars in now we see a contract for the first time right now I know that includes Alex is a buyout but let's just say he's he's making around three four hundred K. annually off of this contract. Plus a buy out fee and then he's getting prize money from the six hundred events that go on throughout the year. Right? It's not like blast has. One. Event there multiple events in including one pretty much. Every weekend at this point, right weather's blast or star ladder ESL or face it. There's an event. Every single weekend at this point players are making really good money. Now I know there's a saying like, well, it's never enough right like you should be able to get whatever you're able to will. This was an opportunity for the elders in blast toward together in make making a little bit more beneficial for the ORG is. A huge problem in that. If they didn't consult with them. It's because they chose not to you know they didn't WanNa do it like we know you guys are making a ton of money. We need ours. Also a blast is still paying out the same amount, but I do feel for ownership groups right now in counterstrike because it is so outrageously expensive ended it's taken away from us a little bit in my mind because of how inflated the cost of Gone We've seen. Teams completely just wipe themselves out of counterstrike together we saw cloud nine one of the biggest stories take two year hiatus essentially from the game because they didn't want to compete at a high level. That's what it came down to. Right. They have the money the one of the most valuable orange but chose not to spend. Yeah. In put all their resources into counterstrike instead don't have two dollar and team cloud nine the just enough to stay relevant. That's it. They did the again that we've seen several teams do let's keep our name in the game refloating around right. If his top thirty we'RE STILL ON HDTV, we're still going to be in a handful of events 'cause re cloud nine a but at the end of the day, they didn't see it worthwhile to invest in the counter strike again, they're coming back now but that's after they have two dollar and teams in they're probably saying good success in other areas. Yeah. Ah Let. Me Tell you where I have a problem with because ultimately I think I leaned closer to you. My problem is not that they didn't consult with the Players Association. 'cause consulting means a conversation. Right? My problem is if there was no heads up given because it's not like this is in the off season of blast there in the middle of the event, right? They are still in the tournament mode four like the main blast that will eventually lead to like their big major, right For blast. That's where I have the issue because if you're if you're changing the prize pool mid tournament and not giving them a heads up I. Understand the reason. Obviously. We don't know all the numbers, but all we constantly hear about. How you know the tournament organizers make barely any money and the owners encounter strike especially, pretty much lose money. Right. Having a counter strike team. And yet. Always see from these players are Gucci watches you know Yeezy. Right like they're doing pretty okay. Not Every player I understand that. But for the most part, they're doing pretty okay with their salaries. Heard. From counterstrike pros saying that they won't go to events unless they're staying five star hotels for the most part like the best of the best tower tournament organizers where the. Name anything here but there's a place will say locally where I'm not even kidding you next door, there is a walkway, a covered walkway that leads from the hotel to the place where they were having the event and the players didn't want to stay at the hotel because it wasn't nice enough and this hotel is a Sheridan. It wasn't like a king to know knock on. Lucina. It's a shared. Sakes. Like. Four Star Hotel Four Seasons or anything but. Still pretty good and they wouldn't do it. So then the tournament organizers had to switch the hotel, right? The players went there and said, nope, this isn't up to our standards then switched the hotels and everything here like don't get it twisted. And it's actress counterstrike I'd say most East sports athletes. For being guys that like have very minimum requirements to get by in life like I've seen your room behind your Webcam right we know how some of these guys live they have very high standards when it comes to like pampering them. So No, I think for blast to take a conscious stand and be like we can't survive doing this. Let me ask the players this would you rather have more prize money? Or. Would you rather have? Would you rather have more prize money and blast fold after this because they can't afford To recoup or would you rather have? A reputable event. In blast payout a little less give your or more money to hopefully that will come back to you in some way and then being able to continue because right now that's the only option you have chances are that money is not going back to them in some way though right like. Chances are the orange will pocket money or use it for their expenses that even if? Up The fridge some you out. You know we upgrade the stream room for you guys our facilitation. Pull a microphone get you that private jet.

The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer
"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.
NBA-led walkout over Jacob Blake's shooting marks evolution of protest in pro sports
"N B, A to MLB to MLS, Tennessee NFL and some college teams, players walked off of basketball and tennis courts and practice fields to show solidarity and support social justice in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake. A black man in Kenosha, Wisconsin. We asked Richard Lap Chick, head of the Institute for Diversity and Ethics and Sport at the University of Central Florida. Whether folks should be surprised sports activism in the sixties. You know, we're talking about Tommy spoken John Carlos and Mohammed Ali. Basically. They're the central figures and already face going to prison. As a result of refusing to go to Vietnam, Carlson spent literally were unemployed for seven years. After the Iraqis were athletes who took risks of their careers, in some cases, maybe even their lives. But today we have entered a different era that impacted Decision by the end, Bekah and its players association following the lead of more inbox. To cancel games to protest. What's going on over social justice issue is really unprecedented. Having those numbers and the unison. That took place on and then spread to other leads the WN ba Major League Soccer baseball individual athletes taking stands. We're in a completely different era. Athlete activism today than we were two years ago, and somebody has tried to get out there to be active during the whole 50 years. It's incredibly hard for me to see what we're doing, because I think we had to somebody more focus on innovation situation in the United States because of the impact of the pandemic and reopening schools are focused. It shifted from the racial reckoning to the pandemic, and that's gonna help us keep focused on both. Does this matter, Maurine the current climate in the nation in a year that the future of America is is going to be decided in a couple of weeks at the polls.

NBA Players, Owners Meet To Discuss Plan Of Action
"Get back on track WHOA Jeez here. Thankfully to tell us what might happen here. Obviously, it's a fluid situation Adrian. I. Guess. The first thing we want to ask you is, what are we expecting today like what is going to happen today meeting Liz I have no idea what's going to happen today guys yesterday was. A remarkable day and one that I don't think any of us who cover the NBA. WHO Who've covered sports and and in my generation Bo forget but to set the table for today. The players having eleven am meeting here in the bubble. And the owners have a board of governors call at the same time. I'm pulled eleven am obviously that'll be done virtually and so simultaneously, those two groups we'll be meeting and the players. I think after a night, it was an emotional day. It was an emotional meeting they had. With most of the players in the bubble coaches were there last night there came a point where? The players asked the coaches to leave so they could hash it out amongst themselves. The teams I was told broke up into groups. and then they're going to continue that conversation this morning but I mean what's at stake is simply This season and are the players as a group going to decide to move forward. Continue the playoffs by all indications that the three games that are scheduled today. Not. Going to be played, the League hadn't officially. announced it but every indication we got in the last night regardless of what they decide moving forward that those three games later in the day. Wouldn't be played, but the players have more to work through and talk through. And consider a lot of different. Consider a lot of different scenarios. And and ultimately consequences of what it would mean to shut this bubble down. You're there in the bubble woes and you could get and I just WanNa know like what is what's the feeling is like does feel like NAM empty and just spooky and? What's that feeling like? I. Think the last several days keyshawn. and. You could feel a building you could watch on I think you guys could watch. On television and and read what people are saying and see. The interviews with George Hill and Fred Van Vliet. and. The emotion that players were carrying. Since the shooting of Jacob Blake earlier. In the week. And how that resonated not just all over the country. But here. and. On top of the emotion and Guys have been here a long time and it wears on you and guys miss families guys feel. At times like their captive in this place it I get it. It's a resort like I. Don't mean to. It is a resort and I get it and. All of us are lucky to be able to work. In, this country right now and a lot of people can't but there is a cumulative effect about being away this long. And you add on top of that. the horrific nature of that shooting. Another in a series of them in years of decades. Of them a century of them and so. data impacted this place at impacted those inside. And It was a domino effect yesterday of once. The bucks made the decision to knock him out of the locker room and not play. And then how it impacted the other teams and lead to that meeting last night that was pretty rot times. The to La teams the LA clippers. The Lakers have two of the hour say most powerful voices in professional sports in Genie Boston. Steve, bomber what type of influence can they have on the rest of the NBA owners to get something done in favor of the players? It's a good question I think the question is. And I think what the players Were spending last night doing. And and previously, it's been an ongoing conversation here. But is there something and and I and I know in the meeting last I a lot of players. Disgusted I know CJ mccollum was who's an executive on the players committee or on the on the Executive Committee of the Players Association. mccomb the Blazers Jaylen Brown the Celtics war leaders. in the Union and top players in league talked about having a plan of action and the bucks in the locker. Room. In those hours after that they after they decided not to play. Working with their own ownership in Milwaukee to get on the phone the Attorney General of the Lieutenant Governor in Wisconsin to talk about ways to move forward. To try to impact. that. Particular case. In in their state in Kenosha. And so you saw players already beginning to do that yesterday now. How does that continue today? What what players are asking themselves I know what organizations are asking players when they got back to the rooms. Last my back to the hotels. What is the endgame if we don't play? One is that what is it that we wanNA accomplish outside of the bubble outside of this environment outside of the platform that you have right now to play. play NBA Games and speak to the world through. Through this. What does that look like and so I think that's all going to be part of the conversation today with the players and with the owners if they kinda reconnect after those two meetings.

Trevor Lawrence sparks united #WeWantToPlay movement, players association goal as 2020 season hangs in balance
"Let me ask you. You've seen this trending some of the biggest players in college football. Justin Fields, Trevor Laurence. We want to play. We saw Trey Lance at NDS you their quarterback who's going to probably be a top 10 pick. He wants to play. What do you think about the players and certain programs coming out saying Let us play, But yet here we're gonna have the conference is probably cancel it. I'll start with the players. I have a ton of respect for Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields in trail and to be honest for guys to speak out, because those guys probably more so than anyone. That plant on playing college football in 2020. They have the most to lose, right. I mean, I would say they're probably all top 10 picks. I haven't seen anything on Justin feels lately, but I know he's talented as they come. Trevor Laurence and obviously Trey Lance, but You look at those guys to speak out and use their platform for their fellow college athletes. I have a ton of respect for that, but at the same time I don't really agree with them because for two reasons, the 1st 1 being They obviously want to play the same way that I have friends that wanted to have their wedding this summer. I have you know people that want to go on trips and people that want to go visit their parents without fear of Dean, asymptomatic carrier and passing covert along to them, so people want to do a lot of things. That doesn't mean we should or that doesn't mean that we Are allowed to right now because during a global pandemic times are just different. Like I want to hop on a plane and go visit friends. But guess what? I cannot do that right now. At least I should not be doing that right now because it's in the best interest. Or of the general health of myself in the population and those around me, So we're making those sacrifices in college football is not immune to to those things, and at the same time if you're a college athlete I feel like if I was a charge of the College Football Players committee, not that they have one of those, but they had a union or something. I would have waited until the conference schedules said Hey, do you know what we are going to play football this year? And then I would use that as leverage to Seo so are being treated differently than normal students who are all at home doing virtual learning. I feel as if we should be compensated for this. And if they were gonna pay, they should be paid to play because they're essential employees now at this point, right? You have normal student at home taking classes on mine, but you're going to ask the players. To travel to pay rent to live on campus and then you know, go risk their health and their livelihood on the field. That's what in central employees, in fact is, so I don't know. I understand the competitive desire. I feel like I would probably have the same mentality. A 20 Thinking you can't touch me. I want to play college football is my senior year. But at the end of the day, I want to do a lot of things. But much smarter People tell me I shouldn't do those things.

Buffalo Bills’ Tre’Davious White not among 66 NFL opt outs
"Was D day. When it came to NFL players, opting out 66 players around the NFL decided to sit out the season. The deadline was four o'clock eastern time. That was part of a plan. At the NFL and the Players Association approved on July 24th the open training camp as schedule as well as canceling preseason games in Fitzsimmons. One guy decided to let people know exactly what he was thinking about doing. And boy he called Holy. You know what for, and his name, Mr Davis. Why did the Buffalo bills he decided to not opt out after putting on social media that he was considering it. You've known me more than a minute. I'm not in the habit of telling grown folks what to do but hatred, Davis If you're going to opt out, dude, don't put it on social media. If you're going to think about doing anything, just leave social media be. It is not worth it because he caught a bunch of holy. You know what from supposed fans out there? Trying to give him advice about what he should do. And that also leads me to another part of that story, Freddie because today V is white, even going back to his days at L s U. It has always been the ultimate team guy. And when, when bills fans were calling him selfish for opting out, That's one of the dumbest things as a fan of the team or a player that you could do now we all understand that, at least in my opinion. Hey, if not if he isn't the best player on the bills Freddie. He's one of the top two at worst three, but he's probably the best player on that team led the NFL and picks last year. A pro bowler. You know, he is just that you were in 27 buffalo is a is a lock down bad, eh? At corner.

"My heart. Says No, we'll go back to the way things are in the traditional baseball sent. My mind tells me no. Just a CZ. I told everybody is we began the show tonight. Rob Manfred's right play right man to run baseball right now, because He is not old school. He is number on his feet. There are no sacred cows. He's not afraid to make changes. You look at the changes they made in my minor league baseball. These are some of the changes that he would like to see is they wants to see baseball progress. Into the next century. So I have a feeling at least one of those has a really possibility of being accepted into the next C B. A. It will happen. 20. Let's see. Weren't weren't 2020 right now will happen 2021. Maybe. Maybe not. More than likely 2022 is a new collective bargaining agreement goes through. It becomes part of the negotiations. The Players Association would like to have expanded roster and they'd like to have the designated hitter. In both leads because the doesn't hitter, eh? A D H will make more than the 25th man 26 or 27th man on the squad. So brings up the overall pay scale and pay rate. And payrolls for the union membership. So the players association is all for having a D H owners aren't because it's going to cost them more money to have another. Prototypical D h. Like David Ortiz. He makes a heck of a lot more money than 1/5 outfielder. The runner on second is something that baseball under Rob Manfred's in favor of In fact, they've been experimenting it with it in the minor leagues, and it's something that That he's committed to. I don't like it personally, I don't think it's Ah, I don't think it's a fair outcome for the game because you have a guy on second base. All of a sudden, one picture misses one spot. A single and a double into the gap wins the ball game that that's that puts the pitcher at a severe disadvantage. And if anything, it shortens, and I think it cheapens the game. I understand why we have it right now, because I don't think you can have those marathon games with the way the season is with the covert restrictions Tohave 18 18 games. So it's better to just get the game's finished. That's why they're going to go to seven inning games for double headers, and they're gonna have this wolf for these games as well. I don't like it. So if I had the Swallow one and hated begrudgingly would be I can't believe I'm saying this is sac religious for me, but the D h in both leagues before I'd want to see the runner in scoring position and extra innings. I just think it cheapens the game and it's not a fair outcome of Who's going to? Ah, come away with a victory. It's kind of like a shootout hockey. You play your butt off for for for the overtime period after you got through three periods, and then you decide who's going to get the extra point by shut out. Does that really tell you who won the game or who got lucky in the shutout? Same thing with the rule runner of second base doesn't really tell you who won the baseball game who got lucky with the runner in scoring position because Maybe I have a picture that throws two wild pitches and scores. The winning run in the game's over that I really beat you or did I just get lucky? That's what I think. Thanks to the call. Appreciate it. That was very insightful. I like that. Um, let me grab five time Grab Tony in Atlanta. No, I just talked to Tony Atlanta. All right.

"The Players Association by the A. B. I. are in talks to allow players when they come back instead of having a last name on the back of their jerseys to put statements on their which I think is yet another way to further the message you know I've I've had these are I've actually had these debates with our last caller rob on on several occasions and my whole point was with these guys coming back you can continue to get your message out there while playing and I even mentioned you know whether it's a warmup Jersey or warm up shirt you know what the if they choose to take a knee or whatever the case may be but this is yet another way to get the message out there and I think you will absolutely see that happen when surprise me one bit and and I think the league would be more than open to doing that for the players so expect that when the NBA comes back and you know you look at the schedule that the Sixers are gonna have here's the thing if first of all let's give it you know a very favorable schedule if you well get a tough one out of the gate with the Pacers but then you get a spurs team that's missing players get a wizards team this missing players a magic team that isn't that good even the Sixers struggled with them Portland team it's disinterested a son's team that stinks then you get the raptors and rockets that should be six until I'm saying that assuming all the other players you know all the all the other teams are playing in these games yeah there's only one back to back but teams that have stuff locked up are essentially gonna use these eight games as preseason games so you may not be getting teams best shots so just keep that in mind we work we're kind of looking at this like you know it's it's gonna be even playing field or court if you well may not be the case sell things may look a lot different on paper now than what it's going to be where these guys may not be giving it all I was a full effort I think the guys on the floor gonna be battling but the coaches may take it out of their hands it's gonna candy in the northeast carrier on ninety four to be acting thanks a lot I can hear you all right good we are the usual would've been but narc it was but not to hit Griffith in the new York gain deferred yep okay put about sorry for that the rest of that season and the following season that that's how bad that it was yeah and he was the last of the sixty minute fires by today's standards you will be small yeah yeah no it here's the craziest thing candy in that sixty season when the eagles won it he was thirty five years old he played both ways at thirty five well this is what I want to ask you about you have guys like did did Jimmy brown store back in all these old older players who played in the seventies and eighties and the sixties not the equipment that they have today and they still don't trust the brain matter still pretty much in fact yeah well you're right but that's you that you just picked out a few right there's a there's hundreds of others that we either don't see as much as we see those guys or whatever they are in awful shape it's just random it's ran I think I think also when when it became a sign like in the eighties or nineties it's like getting in a car accident every week yeah you know your body can only take so much when they went from like guys three three twenty five two guys three sixty impression for five hundred pounds yeah you know the the body can only take so much that shoppers the law I grew to yeah I mean that the bigger bigger faster makes for more entertaining football but it also you know does far more damage on the body Hey it's yes energy common Accenture courses of energy need each other you look some things you just can't explain like I'll give you an example you know Roger wore ski Roger wore ski the amount of concussions that he suffered in his career is is nothing short of amazing and scary yet he's the sharpest guy you'll ever talk to like it it's just some some things are hard to explain you know why why that's the case but yeah I hear you I hear what I heard Graham Cassidy was summoned back I said he might be making a mistake because he went out because he had because of his concussion history and is back yeah yeah he was if you watched him that last year and I know they ended up winning it he made a couple plays late but most of that year he did he looked nothing like himself and I really wonder you know I know we all just assume he's gonna be great ground but I I really wonder if this guy isn't to beat up I I don't and and look I we'll see maybe having a year off help them but I I think he's you're gonna see a a shell of what we we you know I've seen of crock when he was you know the guy yes well just real fast I make a comment I mean everybody loves went I like him I'd love to see him stay healthy for a season that and by all Super Bowl but a combination of bad we'll have a bad back and you know that's not good yeah I but I I don't know if it's fair to say that he's got a bad back yes he had a back injury for sure but if he didn't have any issues with the back last year I mean I I agree with your sentiment that we you know he's got to get through the whole year and a playoff setting yeah I got through the entire year last year up until the playoffs but yeah for sure I mean that's the biggest question about Carson Wentz there's no doubt itself number I have lost my movie yeah it will be less each and I hate to get them off the was that from the refresh have agreed okay okay I like it that's the first one we've heard from that good stuff can appreciate it it's gonna norm in New Jersey nor near I. ninety four to be acting now your what's your I don't know sports is is needed but it worries me because I'm I'm thinking if the pro just assess the cesspool I'm I'm thinking about the younger ones this plan again and it scares me that they're going to be playing this game because the professionals have you know all everything to make sure that they're okay and and there's gonna be problems up there but with all these little reason high schools we just don't have that stuff all right so what I'm what I'm faced with what's your point nor I'm trying to figure out what what you're driving I'm staying out I'm scared for the younger generation in in sports because if they're the pros are successful then you know that the high school then a little easier want to play but they don't have the the lasting up to protect them from that are you talk about with the with code nineteen yes okay yeah I I mean I yeah I hear you okay first and foremost the right date what we don't have the ability to test and if it could be dicey for shore younger kids maybe aren't as susceptible but they can still get it for sure and and it's not like there are a bunch of adults around who contracted as well I do think there's some fear a look I have I have kids my daughter is in high school and and she play sports and you know soccer is gonna be right around the corner here you know in some summer leagues and what not and it's it's definitely a concern I I I totally get that for sure yeah.

I mean it could it could happen but again you get a drug men that you could do forget you're right if a runner starts on second base in the tenth inning you could easily Baltimore to third sacrifice fly get a man but again that would be different to get the flight will be put up in the outfield RB Doug basically what you are you're having the valve right well I mean I don't like it up well yeah and we appreciate the call I'm not saying I love the idea but they're trying to you're right I mean it's gonna create now an advantage to be able to score that run but I mean teams may want to swing away try to drive men try to drive in more than just the one run if you get a playful one run and then hope to go out there and close you know shut the other team down well I think it adds drama I don't know I don't know how it's gonna work I haven't seen it before never watch it when they experimented with it in the minors so I I don't love it either but first sixty games it's not going to happen in the post season posi it'll go back to regular info or I should say regular rules I was reading something during that my my mom got crossed it'll go back to regular rules for the postseason Craig is in mass bit what's up Gregor were you okay so I just want to touch on baseball coming back and I wanted to talk about mental Yankee fans that even call in and make this week about how will feel the same they won this year but I I totally disagree I think the city needs that I think will be great the message I can't make a run championship especially in the middle of the pandemic I think it would be great for the city and I think it would it would add some energy that we need I'm not I'm not arguing that the let me ask you this Craig when you look at it would you look at it as the same accomplishment had they played a hundred sixty two game season no but at the same time if you if you go back and look at championships in history I'm going to go down in the books I think I think you can you can talk about this championship forever I mean if you're if you're talking about the championship in in the middle of a pandemic I mean because I think that's going down in history for a long time no question about it when we talk to our kids about it or our kids talk to their kids about it it's gonna be like yeah back in the pandemic of two thousand and twenty you know this is what happened so right I do think okay I'm sorry and I'm sorry I think that's my point is I I think this championship would mean a lot I do and I think people look at it differently come playoff time Mr naked all their life I I agree with that to a certain extent thanks we've received second crack I agree with that to a certain extent I just told that you could look at it the same way you would a normal championship it's different it's not I'm not saying that mugs and things like that I mean as much but this is different it means something different it's kinda it's own category you can't compare it at least I can't compare it to the World Series winners previously it's kind of a separate category not that it's not going to be important not that it's not going to be meaningful but it will be meaningful or important in its own kind of way and you're right during the pandemic I mean it's it's gonna be an accomplishment just to get the season underway and when you look back at his go back at yes ma'am twenty twenty wouldn't crazier that was the someone so went on to win the war the World Series during the pandemic NE sixty game shortened season still win is a win Charlie Blackmon and to all the Rockies I guess tested positive this according to Kyle Newman who ever that is Charlie Blackmon into all the rocky says positive corona virus after work hours of course field well this is going to be part of the norm now that to me is not I'm not shocked by it you hope that they're healthy and safe I'm not shocked I'm not shocked by it at all.

to the Cavaliers not really on the fence about it you could tell me I look at it to see you go but you got to play at four AM like I said before place for it with you with one hand behind your back in your eyes closed play anything at any point so as long as the say popular of late eighties in two days at this point I you know I think I think all the guys to come back obviously you were being safe but yeah I would if that was the idea proposed it was safe also yes I'll be the first one yes amen to that Larry Nance coming out strong and why we had nine four AM by the way we love that officials meanwhile told players of their individual responses to the pole and their identities will be kept confidential within the NBPA meanwhile those who were on a board of governors call with commissioner Adam silver Tuesday left that virtual meeting increasingly positive about the momentum toward a resumption of the season those on the call owners team executives we're encouraged about the progress towards minimizing health risks upon returning there's a desire among many some hopes not desire may grow even stronger this week ESPN insider Brian Windhorst starting on Friday star players like Russell Westbrook Steph curry lebron James their pay their paychecks are going to be hundreds of thousands of dollars later than they were supposed to be and that is a motivating factor right now I don't know what is there's a number of different committees working there is secret committees their superstar commit union committees everybody's got a committee but I'm gonna tell you that you're all going to come out with the exact same bottom line which is this is going to be a study in risk tolerance we're not gonna have a cure and we're not going to have a vaccine in time for the season so this is going to come down to the NBA building layers of protection how much risk are you willing to accept its gonna land ultimately maybe not today maybe not tomorrow but ultimately it's going to land on Adam silver's desk and he's going to have to make the call and it's going to be one of the biggest decisions he's made in his career and all of the sports commissioner's across all sports are going to have to figure out where their wrist tolerances if a player gets this moving forward the NBA's I said I guess they're essentially saying we're gonna have to do deal with that and continue on because we can't stop the lead for that or else will never finish does that sound reasonable to you that is the position of the league is taking now it wasn't the position six weeks ago it may not be the position in six weeks frankly they're making this up as I go along and that sounds like it's an insult but it's not it's just a reality at some point they're going to get pressed into a corner I don't know if it's going to be June fifteenth or August fifteenth or October fifteenth but they're gonna be pressed into a corner where the money is she was so great that they're going to have to make a decision and I do not I do not envy them in that moment how far back or do you think they're willing to push this current season given how much they currently have invested in it to push back the start of it and then the conclusion of nexus like this or is there a line in the sand weather just like look we can't go beyond that for the last few weeks it's been Labor Day ask me again in a couple weeks to change I do a lot of work on this and I'm telling you if Adam silver called me and asked me Hey you talk to a bunch of experts talked a bunch of our people do you think I would tell him to shut it down for right now come back in the fall have your training camp and then play your playoffs crowd you're twenty twenty champions sometime in November and then immediately move on to the twenty twenty twenty twenty one season and let football and baseball and hockey and whomever else the first through the door there was this rush to be first if I was Adam silver I wouldn't be in a rush to be first that's really interesting it's bad maybe whoever second or third might actually end up being the smartest league effect I have no idea what's going to happen I really don't I just know that there's going to be mistakes made and we're talking about life and death here and I don't want to be the one to make the mistakes discussions from those on the call with Adam silver Tuesday say it's centered on health and safety concerns into returning to the goal of getting team officials and players comfortable with the idea that a positive test for the coronavirus upon a return would not shut play back down silver telling those on the call that if a positive test would quote shut us down we probably shouldn't go down this path how many positive tests would be too many that's one
